Object Manipulation

14 Oct

There is no spoon. There is no reality. Objects may transform at any given momen. Spirit may transform at any given moment. This is what IT is all about.

This is no longer juggling, this is object manipulation. Everything can be manipulated. It is the triumph of mind over matter. It is a new way to look at your city, objects, and soul, and you can start right now where ever you are.

Pink Floyd – The Wall

13 Oct

Empty Spaces as an example:

The complete movie:

Pink Floyd’s the Wall is arguably one of the most intriguing and imaginative albums in the history of rock music. Since its release in 1979, and the subsequent movie of 1982, the Wall has become synonymous with, if not the very definition of, the term “concept album.” Aureally explosive on record and visually explosive on the screen, the Wall traces the life of the fictional protagoinst, Pink Floyd, from his boyhood days in war-torn England to his self-imposed isolation as a world-renownedrock star, leading to a climax that is as questionably cathartic as it is destructive.

The psychedelic films of Peter Jackson

9 Oct

I remembered the idea Terrence Mckenna expressed, about mainstream culture becoming psychedelic because it’s creators are directly influenced by the psychedelic experience, when I saw Jackson’s “Lovely Bones”. Jackson’s most popular films -the Lord Of The Rings series, take place in a fantasy world, and have an according design that is 100% fairytale illustration. the “psychedelic” manifestations in his work are therefor found in other films, where a realistic happening is suddenly juxtaposed with a completely surreal and colorful delirium. this transition from a more or less realistic cinematic expression to a visually packed fantastic one, has more in common with the use of psychedelic drugs than a film that is fantastic from beginning to end. I believe Jackson chose to use visuals that are characteristic of psychedelic trips (ie – the melting background, brighr colors, radiant objects, flying and the intensification of Nature) in places where he wants to depict a liminal state – between life and death, between sanity and psychosis, childhood and adulthood.

Mushrooms- The outer space beings

7 Oct

Where did mushrooms originate? Did they come from outer space like Terrence Mckenna suggested? One sure thing is that who ever watched mushrooms grow noticed that even the way they grow is psychedelic. The internet is full of time lapse videos of mushrooms growing. I picked a few of my favorites.

check out this Amanita Muscaria slowly turning into a spaceship:

The next video is a time lapse of a european forrest full of delights:

This last video should be watched on full screen! If you thought the forrests in europe are full of delights, now it’s time for some amazonian forrest:
