How much of what you do with your day tomorrow could be predicted by simple algorithms already in use today? As this thing we call 'digital technology' advances further and further, does the average person have anything to 'fear' (as the conspiratards might have us believe), or is this a time of outrageous opportunity for those with eyes to see? What is the point in trying to change a person's mind and is it even a 'good' thing to do so?Read more
If a version of you from the future told you to stop doing what you are currently doing, would you listen? Is it possible that investigation into occult/esoteric topics can lead a person 'off the reservation'? How often do you reflect on the time you have already spent in the ACT realm? And where will this path take you next?Read more
In a world gone mad, what does it mean to be 'sane'? Is the ACT realm merely a place for lost souls to get together and blame external forces for their own emptiness? What do we imagine 'death' to entail and who put those ideas in our heads? Does the practicing skeptic have to live a life without faith?
Joining me to discuss these questions and more was an all-star cast of MSC regulars, as well as yet another debutante: DNA from Holland.Read more
This is the Warmup thread for Member Skype Call #32, which is focused on existentialism and death.Read more
What is the 'trivium' and how might it be useful to those seeking the 'truth'? Who is Jan Irvin and why does he seem to generate so much controversy and drama? Where do we source our information about the (alleged) casualty figures of 'wars'? At the end of the day, why can't we all just get along?

Feeling them feels is part of life. The question is, what do we do about it?Read more
Is there only one way to arrive at the 'truth'? Is there something beyond our empirical senses? Why would anybody choose to not believe that the sun is a solid, physical object? What would Jay Dyer say about all of this? Is it human nature to feel uncomfortable when the people we respect are criticised by others?
A packed house was in today to discuss all of these topics and more.Read more
You've seen The Matrix. You know that there are esoteric and/or 'hidden' messages contained within. You're aware that Neo's passport expires on September 11, 2001.
You understand that the 'follow the white rabbit' trope is employed in the film as is the now-cliched concept of 'taking the red pill'.
What if I told you that the rabbit hole goes much, much deeper than any of this? What if I could prove it to you?Read more
The main topic of conversation in this call was to do with the ethical (moral?) implications concerned with investing in potential ponzi schemes.
Most of us like to think that we have our ethical/moral frameworks finely-tuned and internally consistent... but do we?Read more
