UFO Conference - Truro, Cornwall
The 17th annual Cornwall UFO conference was held on the 12th October 2013 at Truro College where attendees were treated to a mind-bending and consciousness-expanding experience!
This is a quick round-up of the event and some of my photos that record a wonderful day spent in the company of many like-minded UFO researchers - many of whom had travelled from around the World to attend the event.
5 Reasons Why UFO Disclosure Might Not Be Such a Good Idea
In a week when a lot of excitement has been generated within the UFO community following the release of the UFO disclosure film 'Sirius' by Dr Steven Greer and 'The Citizen Hearing on Discolusure' - a five-day hearing to be held in Washington (Source and Image Copyright: The Telegraph) I have been drawn to consider the role that these important events have to play in the current UFO/ET/alien debate.
Entheogens and the Development of Culture by Various
Entheogens and the Development of Culture makes the radical proposition that mind-altering substances have played a major part not only in cultural development but also in human brain development. Researchers suggest that we have purposely enhanced receptor sites in the brain, especially those for dopamine and serotonin, through the use of plants and fungi over a long period of time. The trade-off for lowered functioning and potential drug abuse has been more creative thinking--or a leap in consciousness. Experiments in entheogen use led to the development of primitive medicine, in which certain mind-altering plants and fungi were imbibed to still fatigue, pain, or depression, while others were taken to promote hunger and libido. Our ancestors selected for our neural hardware, and our propensity for seeking altered forms of consciousness as a survival strategy may be intimately bound to our decision-making processes going back to the dawn of time.
The Way of the Modern Magickal Shaman
Throughout history and all cultures there has always existed important members of all communities who's role it has been to oversee the spiritual wealth and well-being of the others.These 'Shamanic' individuals are extra-ordinary people each of whom hold a close connection to Magickal Worlds that are now becoming so dense that they actually interpenetrate our physical plane - at least in part. Through their connections to the Higher Planes these people interface with the elders of the Underworld and draw strength and sustainance from the wisdom of the path and the mythology that underpins their tribal traditions.
