Sumerian Buddhist monk robe before the Buddha

Could Sumerian culture have had Buddhist monk robes and perhaps the Buddha himself was Sumerian? The mixning of styles is a fact as far as history goes. We know that Buddhism began to depict the form of the Buddha somewhere 200 years after his death in Afghanistan where they encountered the Greeks from where Alexander ...

Satellite surveillance and transhumanism

The next 10 years will see a quality shift in the quality of commercial satellite images available. The company Digital Globe has through lobbying made the U.S. government relax their limits from 50cm to 25cm opening up to upcoming super improvement of satellite image quality. This is a starting point for the future where you'll be ...

Damo Suzuki with Lerin/Hystad

Last night I saw Damo Suzuki for the first time. Together with the couple and duo Lerin/Hystad, which I interviewed for AlltFörMusik.se earlier this year about their music, relation with Damo and then freshly released album Mount Buzhou. It's in Swedish but google translate can help out very well - Intervju med Lerin / Hystad ...

There will be no reason to have a separation of A.I. and humans

In the coming age of super exponential technological and biological development humans will not just create A.I. We will merge with that from the start. If we look at the complex computer systems running our world today, we would have called them conscious 200 years ago? Would we? So when we look at the development ...

Chemtrails before chemtrails

While there is a modern version of chemtrails being something new, there actually was chemtrails before chemtrails. First of all, chemtrails means a deliberate spraying of chemicals or something in the atmosphere. This in contrast to regular contrails, that are vapor from the airplane engine. So the difference is that the vapor disappears while the ...

Transcendence film review – transhumanism and singularity

This film is interesting in its ideas and vision of the future, not as a film in it self. So I'll focus only on the visionary content of it, that really resonates with our possible future. Something that we have already seen in earlier films like Terminator, The Matrix and the Battlestar Galactica series. Everyone ...

Ur Dröm

Uppspolad. Väckt av vattennivån, salt ó sand. Någonstans sjönk jag i sömn, en dröm om ett liv. Det varade länge kändes det som, då. Saltvatten inifrån, även här finns tårar. Hela livet drömde jag den återkommande stranden av uppvaknande. Nu, på denna strand spolas jag in i vakenhet. Det är såhär det blir i att kunna titta, ...

Alan Watts – Hoax? Alcoholic? Genius? Guru?

I must start off with by saying that the first times I heard his audio lectures they really did good for me. In many ways, as in opening up to further references and knowledge, as in hearing a talented man articulating himself and as in instant inspiration and some deep realizations. Then only years later ...

The inevitability of singularity

There is an interesting connection between some religious and spiritual practices and the transhumanism movement - on where we come from and where we are destined to. The connection with today’s modern transhumanism is that all consciousness, mind, matter, time, space and simply everything is going to be connected. United in the Singularity that resonates ...

Borgund stave church

Interesting mix of ancient norse and then modern christian church architecture. Apparently there were about 1000 of them once upon a time. The Borgund stave church is the one best kept...

Norwegian mountainside – Sel, Lom & Sognefjell

The best part was the passage over Sognefjell. Finally the sun shone through and the climax was unavoidable. I had the super pleasant sensation driving up the lingering roads, higher and higher. Here is a YouTube video on that. http://youtu.be/lFbJfjG4pAo Before arriving there I passed the small places of Sel and Lom. Also at the arrival to ...

Norwegian mountainside – Ringebu and Venabu

On this years roadtrip to the Norway I drove up to Rondane mountain range, as it is the first mountainside stop coming from the south on E6. In the valley before Rondane there is the small town of Ringebu and on the Sunday I was there it was dead empty, only the train station had ...
