Quote: Steven Pinker

Nov 27

“It’s been shown that people (both at the level of individuals and of entire societies) who have higher levels of education and measured intelligence commit fewer violent crimes, cooperate more in experimental games, have more classically-liberal attitudes, are less likely to be racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, and are more receptive to democracy.” — Steven Pinker

Marc Gafni’s Sexual Impropriety Re-Emerges

Marc Gafni’s Sexual Impropriety Re-Emerges

Sep 18

“In the past several weeks, new and incontrovertible information came to light that made me aware that Marc was involved in a sexual relationship with a student and that the relationship was shrouded in secrecy. There was an obvious lack of alignment between Marc’s words to me and his actions. I learned about Marc’s sexual relationship with a student from another woman who was having a sexual relationship with Marc. This woman was also asked by Marc to keep her relationship with him a secret. In talking with this woman, I learned how emotionally damaging this secrecy was for her, how it cut her off from emotional support and connection. I also learned quite a bit about how she felt manipulated by Marc, about how often she witnessed Marc telling lies to cover his tracks, and how upset she was to find herself caught in such a web of lies…” — Tami Simon, Sounds True

Nassim Haramein: Black Whole

Nassim Haramein: Black Whole

Sep 06

They are some of the biggest questions that baffle humans: how was the universe created? Are we and everything around us somehow connected as one? Why do we have a consciousness and what is its effect on reality? Physicists have spent their careers trying to crack the codes. Albert Einstein came up with the Theory of Relativity to explain creation, gravity, and space-time — but a theory of how everything is unified eluded even him. Building on Einstein’s work, Nassim Haramein developed a Unified Field Theory that unveils a specific geometric array to explain creation and the vacuum that connects all things. Is Haramein the first to make this revelation? Remarkably, Haramein found evidence all across the globe in ancient text and tradition — in Egypt, China and Mexico. He turned to Hebrew scrolls and secret codes to uncover the pattern. Simply put, the evidence has been there for us to recognize for thousands of years…if only we knew what to look for…

In Defense of Promiscuity; In Defense Of Chastity

In Defense of Promiscuity; In Defense Of Chastity

Feb 23

Is sexual attraction driven primarily by the need to wield or submit to power? Or is it primarily a force of nature, hormones, and genetics? Or past life connections and karma? Or a subconscious effort to recreate and heal childhood wounds? Or projection — we are physically, sexually, emotionally, mentally attracted to others according to how much we have disowned our own light and darkness and projected it onto them? Or…? In yet another attempt to understand the dynamics of this primal force, I have included three articles. The first two are written by Jun Po Denis Kelly who founded the Buddhist Hollow Bones Order. The third article is by Emily Ann Baratta, who is a former Peace Corps volunteer, a practicing Roman Catholic, and a teaching assistant at OneTaste San Francisco. While all three articles are addressed to an integrally-informed audience, I’m sure all of you will catch their drift — and find them interesting…

Genpo Roshi Admits Affair, Disrobes As Buddhist Priest

Genpo Roshi Admits Affair, Disrobes As Buddhist Priest

Feb 11

Famous Zen Master Genpo Roshi has announced that he is disrobing. For those not acquainted with obscure Buddhist twists on familiar phraseology, to “disrobe” as a Buddhist monk means that you formally quit the Buddhist order and give up your status as a priest and/or monk. Ironically, it was disrobing that got him into trouble in the first place. It seems that Genpo, who is married, had an affair with the woman he was grooming to be his successor…

Feb 02

Leslie Kean talks with Stuart Davis about her book UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go On the Record, the result of a ten-year investigation into one of the world’s most mysterious (and most marginalized) phemonena. Whether you “want to believe” or you want to roll your eyes at the mere mention of UFOs, we invite you to open your mind, open your heart, and allow yourself to sit in the radical, unknowable Mystery for just a little while. The universe is so much bigger and darker than we can ever imagine…
