A favorite quote about how being intuitive is more useful than being ‘learned’…
“In times of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future… while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.”
Meaningless text just to fill the space that can be seen in the preview in the “Latest Posts” main page. I wonder to myself, can I set my home page to show full posts?
WARNING: This litany has not yet been tried in this form. It consists of an adaptation of the aeonic litany of Pete Carroll from his Mass of Baphomet. This form is a proposed new form for the sixth aeon, a ‘post-chaoist’ aeon if you will. I intend to use it in a ‘Mass of Legion’, which shall follow the same formula more or less as the Mass of Baphomet. For an explanation of the concept of aeons referenced in this litany see Aeonics chapters in Liber Null & Psychonaut and Liber Kaos by Carroll and Appendix A in my own Kaos Hieroglyphica.
Once I have tried this formula a few times I will make a public report of the outcomes. In the meantime, since I thought of it today, November 5, I dedicate this to Anonymous, EtherSec and Project Mayhem. May it open the way out of the authoritarian labyrinth.
In the animist aeon, humanity saw me in all things.
In the pagan aeon, they gave me masks and worshipped me by many names.
In the monotheist aeon, I was feared as devils.
In the atheist aeon, I remained unseen, the invisibles.
Chaoists saw me as Baphomet, the spirit of the world.
In this new aeon I have no name, I am anonymous. You can call me Legion, for we are many. We shall endure till the end.
I’ve noticed some discussions on irreality.net about sharing culture, which usually revolved around justifications for music piracy and stuff. Now I’ve got nothing against music piracy. Many a band I own on vinyl and cd, and have attended concerts of, I first listened to on pirate tapes made for me by friends. Sometimes I didn’t even like the music until I’d heard it a few times. Some music really does need to grow on you. So I’m not down on piracy or anything. I think many bands whose music is not immediately accessible have benefited from piracy. Its corporate capitalism that’s killing music, not home taping.
But this article is not about piracy, or even musicians that are giving their music away for free, but rather a more relevant movement to the culture of sharing. I am talking about Open Source and Creative Commons.
