New Zealand Bio-Cosmo-Physics Genius Chris King
Posted Jul 06, 2007
...why is New Zealand reniassance man Chris King so unknown? We don't know, but he's probably got a detailed answer that makes perfect sense.
Chris King is a singular mind --- he's interested in the mechanics of absolutely everything. Every process in every system, at every level of scale. And he's found some truly remarkable patterns out there. His papers are dense and fast-paced. (Personally, when I read my first Chris King article, it took me about three months to get enough background knowledge to understand it.) This is not meant to be some quick brain food, but rather a permanent tribute to what we consider an important mind.
For the more educated reader, you can dive right into his latest magnum opus statement: Cosmic Symmetry-Breaking, Bifurcation, Fractality and Biogenesis, which is a guided tour of the entire Universe and assumes working background knowledge in nearly every scientific discipline. There is also a full-color, expanded edition available here.
One primary reason that Chris King is fairly obscure: there is no easy way into his work.
There is no popular summary in existence at this point. His papers are always complex, but if you're going to start anywhere, start with Quantum Mechanics, Chaos and the Conscious Brain. For a printable and compulsively readable version of the same theories, check out Fractal Neurodynamics and Quantum Chaos. (I still carry a copy of that essay in my laptop case.)
For a specific look at his work on neurology, and the "Hard Problem of Consciousness", we recommend Fractal and Chaotic Dynamics in Nervous Systems Chris King is also (quite sensibly) very concerned about the future of life on this planet --- especially the future of human life. He has created a sprawling encyclopedia of Earth Life, which he calls The Genesis of Eden. We especially recommend the sections on Sociobiology, Biocosmology, Evolution, and a summary of the current biocrisis that all of Earth is facing. (We're gonna go out on a limb here: mass extinctions might be a Very Bad Thing.)
Here at Skilluminati Research, we don't assume everyone reads as much as we do. (In fact, we're grateful for your sloth, since that's precisely what makes you so easy to control.) Here's a list of key concepts, all linked to good introductions to that specific topic.
Hard Problem of Consciousness: How does the brain generate consciousness? This also leads to several other, equally important questions: Is consciousness a phenomenon limited to the brain? Is all matter conscious? What role does consciousness play in the growth of the Universe? ....that sorta thing.
Fractality: Self-similarity. There are few more visually beautiful introductions to fractals than Miqel Dot Com's math images gallery: start here.
Isomorphism: Similar patterns and forms at different levels of scale. For instance, electrons orbiting the nucleus of an atom bear a striking resemblance to planets orbiting a sun.
In China, this has been studied for thousands of years and is known as Li: Patterns in Nature. <---the previous link is to order the book from Amazon. We recently had this book "borrowed" from the library before we could scan it to a .pdf. When it is returned, we'll post it here. In the meantime, this book and all others in the Series, especially Harmonograph and The Little Book of Coincidence, get the highest possible reccomendation from the BIPT.
Symmetry breaking: modeling the growth of life --- the emergence of something new --- mathematically. This principle applies on the cosmic level --- as weak and strong nuclear forces separated in the early Universe --- and it applies on the genetic level, where cells grow into humans.
Neurogenesis: The growth of the brain. There are of course many more terms to define, but we will leave you with one of the more amazing quotes to be found in King's written work:
"The raw numbers game of neurogenesis [growth of the brain from embryo to adult human] suggest attractor dynamics may form an essential bridge between central nervous system genotype and phenotype. The 5 x 10^4 genes governing central nervous system development, around 60% of human genes, cannot informationally specify the connections for 10^11 neurons and 10^15 synapses."
(In other words, the Human Genome Project's claims of "DNA determinism" ---- "everything is in the genes" ---- is radically wrong, not just "popular science" but flat-out dumb. Our genes are clearly working in concert with our environment at every single iteration of human development. Any arguments about "Nature vs. Nurture" might as well be about how many angels are in heaven, wether or not the Earth is flat, or the benefits of bloodletting.)
Charles Tart on the Principles of Aikido
Posted Jul 06, 2007
Any effective attack means the attacker must flow a burst of concentrated energy along a line directed at you. If the attack is a punch to the belly, the attacker's energy, embodied in his fist, moves along a line from his body to your belly. If it hits, you can be badly hurt. So you follow the first basic principle: you get off the line--you move or turn so that the energy of that punch does not connect with you.
The second principle is to blend or harmonize with the attack. You practice Ai. . . . To truly harmonize with the attack, you would not only get off the line, you also would not slow the punch down or oppose it in any way. In fact, you might put your hand on the punching arm and add energy to it in the direction it was already going. You have harmonized and blended with the energy of the attack. By projecting your energy in the same direction the attacker projects his, you see, as it were, your attacker's point of view. . . .
The third basic principle after you have gotten off the line and harmonized with your attacker's energy is to lead energy further than it originally intended to go, thus taking control of it. Then you can throw or otherwise control your attacker. The attacker thus provides most of the energy for handling his attack.
If you were a practitioner of Aikido, how would you react to a personal attack in this imperfect world? In an idealized scheme, we can distinguish three levels of self-defense.
At the highest level of Aikido skill, you would have developed a great sensitivity to subtle cues from others. Among other things, Aikido is a kind of mindfulness meditation (Buddhist vipassana) in action. Thus you would probably sense that the other person was getting upset and might get physically aggressive, so you would leave before the potential attacker's feelings reached an overt level! Not being there when someone gets angry is a marvelously effective kind of self-defense, and you certainly don't need to get angry or aggressive yourself in practicing this approach.
If you were not skilled enough to sense the imminance of the attack before your attacker felt angry, you would still be skilled enough to know how to stay centered and peaceful under the developing tension that precedes an attack. Remaining calm, present, and centered is an excellent form of self-defense. Note the importance of being present as well as calm and centered. You may be calm because you are so lost in your own fantasy world that you don't know what is happening around you, but that is quite different from being calm and present.
As I have discussed elsewhere . . ., there is a great deal of fear of psychic abilities in many people, sometimes conscious, often unconscious. One way this fear can manifest without the person having to realize he is afraid, is through hostility toward psychic and spiritual subjects. Since I frequently lecture on these topics, I sometimes become the target of this kind of anger.
I certainly don't like to be attacked for any reason, even if it's only verbal. I can become afraid, angry, self-righteous, and lose contact with reality as I get absorbed in this pattern. It's not only unpleasant, there is a further frustration: my goal was to communicate useful knowledge. I might seem to "win" an argument, but if I'm angry and self-righteous, I probably have not communicated effectively to my audience, and certainly not to my "opponent".
Before I had studied Aikido, my reaction to an attack in a lecture question was to counterattack. I would expose logical flaws in my attacker's thinking, and/or show he was ignorant of the facts, and/or shower him with high-status scientific facts to demonstrate to him the error of his ways. I would usually "win" the argument, for I was an expert in the subject matter compared to almost all questioners, and a skilled debater. This also made me popular with most of the audience, who were typically "believers" in psychic and spiritual matters, for I had won a victory over the kind of person who attacked them, too. I fought force with greater force.
In retrospect, I doubt that I actually communicated much of anything useful to my "opponent."
Get Familiar with Zbigniew Brzezinski
Posted Jul 06, 2007
If that name doesn't ring a bell by now, we have nothing but contempt for you: start paying more attention. If the monster is familiar, then we present two excerpts with downloadable copies of their source documents. Both are essential reads -- enjoyable, enlightening and strategically invaluable. Enjoy.
From his Christopher J. Makins Lecture to the Atlantic Council of the US:
What we need today is a shared understanding of the things that make our time unique. That understanding must recognize what is unique both about the world in general and about the particular threat we face.
Let me make a stab, just a stab, at a formulation. On the general level, what is distinctive about our time is that the United States and Europe, the most advanced part of the world, face a massive and unprecedented global political awakening. That is something new in all of history. The world as a whole is experiencing today what French society as a whole experienced during the French revolution ? a sudden stirring of political awareness, unleashed passions, fermenting excitement, and escalating aspirations. Today, that sense of revolution is the political reality worldwide and it is altogether new, though it has been developing over a number of decades.
Today, even in remote Nepal, Bolivia, and Kyrgyzstan, we see similar manifestations of political behavior. Today, in Somalia, East Timor, and Chechnya, we see similar manifestations of brutal violence. And throughout the world, we see similar trends in the rise of radical populism, which carries with it the potential for violent extremism. This radical populism, organized through the Internet and fueled by the images of human inequality that are disseminated globally by the electronic media, is also stimulated by a new political reality. This political reality is no longer that of an aroused peasantry or that of the industrial proletariat of Marx ? it is some 120 million fermenting and politically active university students throughout the world. That is the new reality we confront together, and it is a much more complex and difficult reality than we faced during the Cold War, World War I, or World War II.
From Zbigniew's classic "The Grand Chessboard":
... how America "manages" Eurasia is critical. Eurasia is the globe's largest continent and is geopolitically axial. A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world's three most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa's subordination, rendering the Western Hemisphere and Oceania geopolitically peripheral to the world's central continent. About 75 per cent of the world's people live in Eurasia, and most of the world's physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for 60 per cent of the world's GNP and about three-fourths of the world's known energy resources."
"In the long run, global politics are bound to become increasingly uncongenial to the concentration of hegemonic power in the hands of a single state. Hence, America is not only the first, as well as the only, truly global superpower, but it is also likely to be the very last."

From a June 14, 2007 Roundtable discussion with Henry Kissinger and Brent Snowcroft
ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: The political awakening that is happening worldwide is a major challenge for America, because it means that the world is much more restless. It's stirring. It has aspirations which are not easily satisfied. And if America is to lead, it has to relate itself somehow to these new, lively, intense political aspirations, which make our age so different from even the recent past.
But the challenge that we face is rooted much more in the immediate problem, which we have partially created -- namely, we are the number one superpower today in the world. We are the only superpower. But our leadership is being tested in the Middle East, and some of the things that we have done in the Middle East are contributing to a potential explosion region-wide. And if that explosion gets out of hand, we may end up being bogged down for many years to come in a conflict that will be profoundly damaging to our capacity to exercise our power, to address the problems implicit in this global awakening, and we may face a world in which much of the world turns away from us, seeks its own equilibrium, but probably slides into a growing chaos.
So I think we're at a very critical stage, and I am personally very worried as to what might conceivably happen in the next 20 months. I'm more optimistic after 2008.
Micheal Persinger, Shakti, and the Question of the God Gun
Posted Jul 06, 2007
Outside of DARPA, the heavyweight in the field of electromagnetic brain manipulation is Micheal Persinger. His student Todd Murphy runs the very informative and entertaining site Shakti Technology. There is a lot of lightweight philosophizing on the site, but the hidden gem is when Murphy finally provides a little red meat about how all this works.
Shakti uses audio files to play the signals. The 'sounds' have the same shape as an EEG signal - one whose appearance shows the activation of a particular structure (brain part). The magnetic coils are plugged into the sound card, just like a pair of speakers. When the audio file is played, the coils produce magnetic fields whose shape matches the shape of the original EEG trace. The structure the signal 'belongs' to is activated.
Sadly, that's as much detail as the consumer gets. There would appear to be no mention anywhere on the site of what the actual frequencies are, which is all any awake human would give a shit about, because obviously we don't need to buy equipment from these folks once we know how to build our own.
So the real question here is: how can we convert this tech into a concealable God Gun? I can't think of a more benevolent weapon --- what better way for free weirdos to incapacitate our "enemies" than a debilitating blast of union with the Oneness of creation?
(I mentioned this to a buddy who immediately suggested the film Orgazmo, which is about a man who invents an orgasm ray. I will probably never see this movie, but perhaps you already have. Personally, I'd rather puncture a hole in someone's belief system than leave their khakis stained, but it's only a matter of taste.)
Electromagnetic and Acoustic Weapons: Knowledge is Power
Posted Jul 06, 2007
There is no need to even mention to Skilluminati Research readers that your best bet is to learn about this stuff before it gets used against you. Here is a small but potent treasure trove of relevant, quality documentation:
Electromagnetic Weapons -- ESSENTIAL
Magnetic Levitation How-to
Illustrated Summary of Jose Delgado's "Physical Control of the Mind"
Directed Energy Weapons
For further documentation, we highly recommend The International Comittee on Offensive Microwave Weapons and their monster archive.
