Maybe Logic: The Lives & Ideas of Robert Anton Wilson

Guerrilla ontologist. Psychedelic magician. Outer head of the Illuminati. Quantum psychologist. Sit-down comic/philosopher. Discordian Pope. Whatever the label and rank, Robert Anton Wilson is undeniably one of the foundations of 21th Century Western counterculture. Maybe Logic – The Lives and Ideas of Robert Anton Wilson is a cinematic alchemy that conjures it all together in a hilarious and mind-bending journey guaranteed to increase your brain size 2 – 3 inches! From the water coolers and staff meetings of Playboy and the earth-shattering transmission of the Illuminatus! Trilogy, to fire-breathing senior citizen and Taoist sage, Robert Anton Wilson is a man who has passed through the trials of chapel perilous and found himself on wondrous ground where nothing is for certain, even the treasured companionship of a six-foot-tall white rabbit. Featuring RAW video spanning 25 years and the best of over 100 hours of footage thoroughly tweaked, transmuted and regenerated, Maybe Logic follows a reality labyrinth which leads through the hollows of human perception to the vast star fields of Sirius where we find one man alone, joyfully accepting his status as Damned Old Crank and Cosmic Schmuck. Beaming with insight, frustration, compassion, and unshakable optimism, the ever-open eye of Robert Anton Wilson penetrates human illusions exposing the mathematical probabilities and spooky synchronicities of the 8 dimensions of his Universe.

“Listen” -by Knupara- [A Poetic Guide to Global Aerosol Spraying]

Listen. Listen. Feel these words. Read them slowly. Do not accept as fact, listen and contemplate. Okay…..here we go.

Toxic chemicals rain down from the sky, falling, falling on you and I. Polluting our food, air, and mind. Silver sparkles of Aluminum glitter litter the ground. New adage for the sky is falling. Aluminum, the greatest contributor to Alzheimers. Yes, it occurs naturally but we were never meant to breathe it in falling from the sky. We breathe it in. I call bullshit, “refracting suns rays” and even if so, we the people were not consulted before you began this “experiment”. Why do you not tell us openly what is really going on? As if you fear us. We will not harm you, we only want balance, love, community and not to be ruled by an elite force who manipulates and controls. We are tired of being lied to, we know the truth, now just admit it, please just admit it. Do not tell us this tragedy is not occurring. We see it with our eyes, feel it in our soul. We are not as blind as you think. We watch the sky, we listen to our hearts, to the thoughts and insights of ourselves, future generations and expanded awareness.

Our planet, Mother Earth. Our planet Mother Earth is being Geo-engineered! Our Mother is intentionally being polluted with toxic chemicals for the intention of the “few” maintaining power. Whether through weather manipulation, “population control”, or combating global warming. Whatever reason, you are doing this, we the people, you know the ones down here who you are supposed to work for, did not vote for this. We were not asked. Why do you not ask us what we think?

Feel it, feel it, deep, deeper. There in the pit of your soul. Right there, you have found it. You are polluting the air, water, food of your children, grandchildren, your favorite birds, your favorite animals, your favorite trees. How do you separate yourself from the whole? You must not know. You must not know all the harm that is being caused by being misguided and holding the mindset of “just doing my job”. Ignorance is not bliss. Where will you go if this delicate balance of life is continuously manipulated resulting in devastation? Where will you go? Do you realize, when these fake “cirrus clouds” span across our sky, less UV light reaches the Earth? Less UV light reaches, us, the birds, trees and bees. Did you know Bees, our pollinators, the great key to producing our food and flowers, travel by UV light? Do you not think of what will happen when bees do not have a guide? They become lazy, losing the interest in foraging, staying in the hive, only leaving in extreme conditions. They stop pollinating. Do you not understand that ALL life, including you, need this precious UV light to survive? Global dimming…..ah…global dimming. No, it is not romantic. Though that would be nice. Global dimming, a phenomena, a study whose results show that within the last 20 years there has been 15-20% less UV light reaching Earth’s surface. Did you know Southern Oregon in the mid 80’s was a testing ground for aerosol spraying? Can you put all the pieces together? Can you connect all the dots? Can you see what is going on? Les UV light, means vitamin D deficiencies… rise of rickets, lazy bees (precious pollinators), stunted growth of trees, weird disease.

What you do willing to us through lack of education, through being mis-guided and maybe even ignorance, you do willing to your family, your friends, your most loved pets, trees and wild places. How do you feel about your children, grandchildren growing up under toxic skies filled with aluminum, barium, strontium raining down on you and I?

Notes From The Underworld #1 [The World Wide Web of Exploitation and Oppression]:

Notes from the Underworld-The World Wide Web of Exploitation and Oppression:

(Edited and compiled by Prometheus Stargazer based upon communiques from public and anonymous volunteer MiMu agents.)

Much like the infamous harcore journalists, VICE, MiMu seeks to directly experience, infiltrate, and expose current curiousities and, well, vices…

A number of our agents spent almost 12-cumulative months on this exposee. We spent about half this time learning and practicing the security and surfing skills necessary to navigate the “deep web” and the much, much darker parts of the net. The stories our agents have experienced and related from this project are equal parts mentally disturbing and emotionally scarring so this article is not for the weak of heart or those blindly conforming to societal illusions of security, safety, or privacy. The purpose of this piece is not only to expose some of the blatant abuses and violations of common ethics that occurs on the dark web but also what we can do to combat it in our daily lives and in the dominant technological society at large. View our blog at http://mischiefandmutiny.wordpress.com/ for more articles and information on personal security, cryptography, self-defense, and journalistic vigilantism.

The first peek at the “deep web (a name used for the bulk of the World Wide Web that is not filtered through browsers and that you can’t find on any search engine) is certainly exciting, if not slightly disturbing. Besides your general “Hire an Assassin” or black market vendor sites (offering illegal narcotics and weapons mostly, also usually very dangerous if you like freedom and not being in prison), you will also find a nice array of piracy resources, massive PDF libraries, secure communication services, personal blogs & forums for nearly everything imaginable. Sorting through these lists for the proverbial “diamond” is quite a daunting task but an enlightening experience all the same. If you have ever spent any length of time of random 4Chan or Reddit boards you aren’t a stranger to disgust and trauma, or it’s dominant form, child pornography, so the deep web’s massive “underage erotica” racket isn’t infinitely surprising.

Let’s ignore for the moment that underage kids don’t have a fully developed social-consciousness or that they are relatively “ignorant” of societal ills, just the fact people can legitimately advocate/depict any exploitation of children without fear of organized backlash is unthinkable! I’m not anti-pornography by any measure, just anti-exploitation and anti-oppression, and those are two categories that the deep web erotica racketeers distinctly violate. The underground internet is packed with resources for pedophiles, sex criminal forums & networking sites, so-called “pedo blogs”, and your general video and picture gallery sites. But even more disturbing than these is the “how-to-kidnap, torture, rape, and murder” sites (with pics included, of course). Generally disguised as forums with clever cover titles like, “alternative erotica submission forum”, or just simply & blatantly titled like, “Violent Desires”.

Depressed, angry, or disgusted yet? Us too. So what does INTERPOL, the FBI, even any local Cyber Crimes Task Force do about it? So far they have failed at combating anything more than busting the occasional pedophile/video & pic up-loader, down-loader, or a site admin (socially insensible and impractical pursuits if we care to directly disrupt creation and distribution and the central distribution network) but that doesn’t so much as make a dent in the online “child erotica” racket, much less online child sex trafficking. In fact, many of the arrests made due to child sex trafficking, downloading, and/or uploading are due to the extensive data collection, infiltration, and cyber-vigilante activities of none other than the shadowy “Anonymous network”.

Anonymous anti-child sex racketeering “campaigns” are usually carried out by individual hacktivists and/or organized cells, exactly like any other Anonymous action, but their efforts are direct, uncompromising, and decentralized but efficiently organized. In fact, I would estimate possibly even 60-80% of the disappearance of deep web underage sex racket sites and access to link connection points, such as the infamous Hidden Wiki, are due to the tactical efforts of the legion of Anonymous. These efforts are made up of deep-web savvy supporters such as the journalistic vigilantes who cooperatively wrote this piece, these individuals and cells infiltrate sites and forums, pose as sex criminals, compile data, hack site administration, dump data, spam sites to death, and turn in personal information to local Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) so they can do what they do best…clean up after the citizens take care of the problems directly and unfortunately, illegally.

Also, unfortunately, international LEAs have used these infiltrator and chameleon-like tactics to invade cyber-vigilantes privacy, log their data, sabotage their efforts, or even accuse them of harboring pedophilia sympathies and raiding them/detaining them on baseless grounds (such as “possession of anarchist literature”). Either way you look at it, LEA’s dedicated to “disrupting the trafficking of child erotica” are doing a pretty horrible (“centrally-organized”) job. On the other hand, many cyber-vigilantes deserve praise if not at least some form of mass public support.What is the best way to support such actions? Take action and raise your voice against CISPA and other “anti-piracy” (anti-PRIVACY) laws and agreements. Download, run, and support the Tor project (and other open-source and cryptographic tools/services) which, on one hand, does give some sort of cyber-protection to sex criminals but in the end it gives more protection to those citizen-civilians who use their time to tactically and successfully attack exploitative activities online of their own governments or of those downloading or uploading any form of child erotica. Also, downloading/uploading while on Tor, same as any “normal” browser, can almost immediately unmask you, and you will get righteously SERVED by the Legion or any other hacktivism-savvy citizen.

People are exploited, abused, and oppressed at every stage of their lives, why start young and corrupt the online underground in the process? A new collective offensive is coming and if you exploit ANYONE, of any age or social status, you will become a target…

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”~~John F. Kennedy

The Hallucinogenic Revolution -Vol. III- [Cannabis Culture and Legalization]

Happy to release volume three of The Hallucinogenic Revolution e-zine. The first part is dedicated to two audio files of a lecture McKenna gave on cannabis and ethnobotany, I highly suggest taking the time to listen to both. Last part is an essay by North American anarchist philosopher & author, Hakim Bey, on drug legalization and anarchism. Good stuff, transcendentally thought- provoking. We always accept new contributions and are on the prowl for creative content writers. Letters to the editor and contributions go to prometheusstargazer(at)riseup.net. 

Solidarity and Merry Mischief!

Hakim Bey

Against “Legalization”

original source

As a writer, I am distressed and depressed by the suspicion that “dissident media” has become a contradiction in terms — an impossibility. Not because of any triumph of censorship however, but the reverse. There is no real censorship in our society, as Chomsky points out. Suppression of dissent is instead paradoxically achieved by allowing media to absorb (or “co-opt”) all dissent as image.

Once processed as commodity, all rebellion is reduced to the image of rebellion, first as spectacle, and last as simulation. (See Debord, Baudrillard, etc.) The more powerful the dissent as art (or “discourse”) the more powerless it becomes as commodity. In a world of Global Capital, where all media function collectively as the perfect mirror of Capital, we can recognize a global Image or universal imaginaire, universally mediated, lacking any outside or margin. All Image has undergone Enclosure, and as a result it seems that all art is rendered powerless in the sphere of the social. In fact, we can no longer even assume the existence of any “sphere of the social. All human relations can be — and are — expressed as commodity relations.

In this situation, it would seem “reform” has also become an impossibility, since all partial ameliorizations of society will be transformed (by the same paradox that determines the global Image) into means of sustaining and enhancing the power of the commodity. For example, “reform” and “democracy” have now become code-words for the forcible imposition of commodity relations on the former Second and Third Worlds. “Freedom” means freedom of corporations, not of human societies.

From this point of view, I have grave reservations about the reform program of the anti-Drug-Warriors and legalizationists. I would even go so far as to say that I am “against legalization.”

Needless to add that I consider the Drug War an abomination, and that I would demand immediate unconditional amnesty for all “prisoners of consciousness” — assuming that I had any power to make demands! But in a world where all reform can be instantaneously turned into new means of control, according to the “paradox” sketched in the above paragraphs, it makes no sense to go on demanding legalization simply because it seems rational and humane.

For example, consider what might result from the legalization of “medical marijuana” — clearly the will of the people in at least six states. The herb would instantly fall under drastic new regulations from “Above” (the AMA, the courts, insurance companies, etc.). Monsanto would probably acquire the DNA patents and “intellectual ownership” of the plant’s genetic structure. Laws would probably be tightened against illegal marijuana for “recreational uses.” Smokers would be defined (by law) as “sick.” As a commodity, Cannabis would soon be denatured like other legal psychotropics such as coffee, tobacco, or chocolate.

Terence McKenna once pointed out that virtually all useful research on psychotropics is carried out illegally and is often largely funded from underground. Legalization would make possible a much tighter control from above over all drug research. The valuable contributions of the entheogenic underground would probably diminish or cease altogether. Terence suggested that we stop wasting time and energy petitioning the authorities for permission to do what we’re doing, and simply get on with it.

Yes, the Drug War is evil and irrational. Let us not forget, however, that as an economic activity, the War makes quite good sense. I’m not even going to mention the booming “corrections industry,” the bloated police and intelligence budgets, or the interests of the pharmaceutical cartels. Economists estimate that some ten percent of circulating capital in the world is “gray money” derived from illegal activity (largely drug and weapon sales). This gray area is actually a kind of free-floating frontier for Global Capital itself, a small wave that precedes the big wave and provides its “sense of direction.” (For example gray money or “offshore” capital is always the first to migrate from depressed markets to thriving markets.) “War is the health of the State” as Randolph Bourne once said — but war is no longer so profitable as in the old days of booty, tribute and chattel slavery. Economic war increasingly takes its place, and the Drug War is an almost “pure” form of economic war. And since the Neo-liberal State has given up so much power to corporations and “markets” since 1989, it might justly be said that the War on Drugs constitutes the “health” of Capital itself.

From this perspective, reform and legalization would clearly be doomed to failure for deep “infrastructural” reasons, and therefore all agitation for reform would constitute wasted effort — a tragedy of misdirected idealism. Global Capital cannot be “reformed” because all reformation is deformed when the form itself is distorted in its very essence. Agitation for reform is allowed so that an image of free speech and permitted dissidence can be maintained, but reform itself is never permitted. Anarchists and Marxists were right to maintain that the structure itself must be changed, not merely its secondary characteristics. Unfortunately the “movement of the social” itself seems to have failed, and even its deep underlying structures must now be “re-invented” almost from scratch. The War on Drugs is going to go on. Perhaps we should consider how to act as warriors rather than reformers. Nietzsche says somewhere that he has no interest in overthrowing the stupidity of the law, since such reform would leave nothing for the “free spirit” to accomplish — nothing to “overcome.” I wouldn’t go so far as to recommend such an “immoral” and starkly existentialist position. But I do think we could do with a dose of stoicism.

Beyond (or aside from) economic considerations, the ban on (some) psychotropics can also be considered from a “shamanic” perspective. Global Capital and universal Image seem able to absorb almost any “outside” and transform it into an area of commodification and control. But somehow, for some strange reason, Capital appears unable or unwilling to absorb the entheogenic dimension. It persists in making war on mind-altering or transformative substance, rather than attempting to “co-opt” and hegemonize their power.

In other words it would seem that some sort of authentic power is at stake here. Global Capital reacts to this power with the same basic strategy as the Inquisition — by attempting to suppress it from the outside rather than control it from within. (“Project MKULTRA” was the government’s secret attempt to penetrate the occult interior of psychotropism- — it appears to have failed miserably.) In a world that has abolished the Outside by the triumph of the Image, it seems that at least one “outside” nevertheless persists. Power can deal with this outside only as a form of the unconscious, i.e., by suppression rather than realization. But this leaves open the possibility that those who manage to attain “direct awareness” of this power might actually be able to wield it and implement it. If “entheogenic neo-shamanism” (or whatever you want to call it) cannot be betrayed and absorbed into the power-structure of the Image, then we may hypothesize that it represents a genuine Other, a viable alternative to the “one world” of triumphant Capital. It is (or could be) our source of power.

The “Magic of the State” (as M. Taussig calls it), which is also the magic of Capital itself, consists of social control through the manipulation of symbols. This is attained through mediation, including the ultimate medium, money as hieroglyphic text, money as pure Imagination as “social fiction” or mass hallucination. This real illusion has taken the place of both religion and ideology as delusionary sources of social power. This power therefore possesses (or is possessed by) a secret goal; that all human relations be defined according to this hieroglyphic mediation, this “magic.” But neo-shamanism proposes with all seriousness that another magic may exist, an effective mode of consciousness that cannot be hexed by the sign of the commodity. If this were so, it would help explain why the Image appears unable or unwilling to deal “rationally” with the “issue of drugs.” In fact, a magical analysis of power might emerge from the observed fact of this radical incompatibility of the Global Imaginaire and shamanic consciousness.

In such a case, what could our power consist of in actual empirical terms? I am far from proposing that “winning” the War on Drugs would somehow constitute The Revolution — or even that “shamanic power” could contest the magic of the State in any strategic manner. Clearly however the very existence of entheogenism as a true difference — in a world where true difference is denied — marks the historic validity of an Other, of an authentic Outside. In the (unlikely) event of legalization, this Outside would be breached, entered, colonized, betrayed, and turned into sheer simulation. A major source of initiation, still accessible in a world apparently devoid of mystery and of will, would be dissolved into empty representation, a pseudo-rite of passage into the timeless/spaceless enclosure of the Image. In short, we would have sacrificed our potential power to the ersatz reform of legalization, and we would win nothing thereby but the simulacrum of tolerance at the expense of the triumph of Control.

Again: I have no idea what our strategy shall be. I believe however that the time has come to admit that a tactics of mere contingency can no longer sustain us. “Permitted dissent” has become an empty category, and reform merely a mask for recuperation. The more we struggle on “their” terms the more we lose. The drug legalization movement has never won a single battle. Not in America anyway — and America is the “sole superpower” of Global Capital. We boast of our outlaw status as outsiders or marginals, as guerilla ontologists; why then, do we continually beg for authenticity and validation (either as “reward” or as “punishment”) from authority? What good would it do us if we were to be granted this status, this “legality”?

The Reform movement has upheld true rationality and it has championed real human values. Honor where honor is due. Given the profound failure of the movement however, might it not be timely to say a few words for the irrational, for the irreducible wildness of shamanism, and even a single word for the values of the warrior? “Not peace, but a sword.”


CyberGuerrilla -Vol.I- [CryptoDefense and the Electronic Insurrection]

Because it is near impossible to compile every single necessary resource into one simple guide we have decided to launch our third active e-zine, CryptoGuerrilla, dedicated to compiling and spreading accessible information about cryptography technology and the free culture movement.Our hope is that these articles will serve as an introduction for some folks to the reality of communications and information in our civilization, a starting point from where one may further explore the concept of building and defending a free and open internet. For those that are aware of current cryptographic technologies and free culture ideals, our hope is that you will share these zines, continue to employ these resources, and maybe even contribute your experience to our project here at Mischief & Mutiny Institute. We are always accepting contributions on a variety of topics since we rely completely on guerrilla journalism and decentralized information-sharing, so please consider lending your knowledge to a vanguard media cooperative dedicated to the defense of an open, liberated web.–MCN & PKS

What is crypto-anarchism and why is it important to you?

Some folks say that cyber-anarchism is “the cyber-spatial realization of anarcho-capitalism”. Well, OK, but in all cases? I think, in fact, that even cryptographic and free culture projects originally launched by an-caps and/or market libertarians (or by communists of any variety) have evolved beyond ideologies to form post-Communist/post-Capitalist counterculture that is very distinctly synthesist and very anti-authoritarian. The idea is using and spreading cryptographic software to evade prosecution and harassment while sending and receiving information over computer networks, thereby protecting privacy,open access, and political freedom. Think about these ideals as more knowledge begins to be suppressed and forced underground.

Getting started:

Check out the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Surveillance Self-Defense project site at ssd.eff.org for a comprehensive, user-friendly, introductory guide and resource compendium on defending almost all personal communications against unwanted surveillance as best as possible. Includes info & resources for encrypting cell phone communications, email (We’ll cover this in the zine), and others such as instant messaging.

I hope you’ve heard of the Tor Project

2009-tor-logoIf you have not and worse, are not running it and sharing it all the time, then we implore you to learn and explore this awesome resource!

Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows you to improve your privacy and security on the Internet. Tor works by sending your traffic through three random servers (also known as relays) in the Tor network, before the traffic is sent out onto the public Internet.

tor-onion

The image above illustrates a user browsing to different websites over Tor. The green monitors represent relays in the Tor network, while the three keys represent the layers of encryption between the user and each relay.

Tor will anonymize the origin of your traffic, and it will encrypt everything between you and the Tor network. Tor will also encrypt your traffic inside the Tor network, but it cannot encrypt your traffic between the Tor network and its final destination. Tor also allows a user access to the realm of suppressed sites, underground, and black markets commonly called the “deep web”. We will cover the deep web in a later issue of CyberGuerrilla.

If you are communicating sensitive information, for example when logging on to a website with a username and password, make sure that you are using HTTPS (e.g. https://torproject.org/, not http://torproject.org/).

The more people in your area that run Tor, allows every local user more anonymity. Many people run Tor alongside another browser such as Mozilla Firefox, running Tor even if you aren’t using it is suggested. Whatever browser you use, make sure that HTTPS Everywhere is an add-on option.

HTTPS_Everywhere_joined

HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox and Chrome extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure. Encrypt the web: Install HTTPS Everywhere today.

A fun add-on to those browsers useful for everyone from the web surfer tired of advertiser tracking and analytics to the hardcore privacy advocate and civil libertarian is a track blocker. Ghostery is a great example!

“Be a web detective. Ghostery is your window into the invisible web – tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons that are included on web pages in order to get an idea of your online behavior. Ghostery tracks over 1,200 trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity.” [ALSO TOTALLY FREE, once again]

Email Encryption, Secure E-Communications, and Mozilla Thunderbird:

enigmail_gnupg_thunderbird

Enigmail is a security extension to Mozilla Thunderbird and Seamonkey. It enables you to write and receive email messages signed and/or encrypted with the OpenPGP standard. Sending and receiving encrypted and digitally signed email is simple using Enigmail. When starting it for the first time, you are guided through the basic setup. We also prepared a new users’ guide that explains how to use OpenPGP.”

Computer, File, and/or Disk Encryption:

0-TrueCrypt

TrueCrypt is a free software application used for on-the-fly encryption. If relying on TrueCrypt encryption for life and death matters, it is worth noting that TrueCrypt (or any other security software) is only as trustworthy as the people writing and reviewing the code. Nevertheless, check it all out.

Let’s Get Real! -Vol I- [Self-Defense E-Zine]

<<For educational purposes only–Toolkit for the community-regulated Militia>>

With increasing crime rates and and increasingly totalitarian law & defense system to combat them, how can anyone deny the practicality of self-defense knowledge? Self-defense knowledge is a cornerstone of self-reliance and community & individual empowerment. This new zine is the beginning of an open e-zine project collaboration. We hope that in this transforming, tumultuous world there are those self-ruling and socially-revolutionary individuals who want to undertake anti-authoritarian community peacekeeping, through whatever means and tactics available. This zine series explores info from military and law enforcement tactics, survivalist instructionals, constitutional law & history, revolutionary strategy/guerrilla warfare theory & practice (Guevarist-Castroist, Maoist, anarchist, Bolshevik, American patriot, French Revolutionary, and Zapatista) and combines it with practical skills in martial arts, crowd control, melee weaponry, and defensive gear. Enjoy!

Neutralizing Tear Gas/Preventative & Defensive Measures:

After being tear-gassed:

Outstretch your arms and face the wind. Clean fresh air can blow the excess powder off of your clothes and hair, so face the wind to prevent it from blowing into your eyes or mouth. Rinse your eyes with cold clean water. Run the water from the inside corner of your eye to the outer corner and try to keep the contaminated water from running on your skin or clothes. Try to avoid hot water because it opens pores. Some military-grade tear gas and pepper spray is supposedly reactivated by water, hot or cold. Using a fatty oil, butter, or a baking soda and water application to heavily-affected areas. Defensive gear such as bandannas soaked in vinegar or lime juice can be kept in a sealed bag until use is necessary. Safety goggles/snowboarding goggles and respirators or full-blown gas  masks are highly recommended in high-conflict areas. Conceal defensive gear during any civil upsets as to not attract any unwanted attention. If you cover ALL your skin in synthetic and/or moisture-resistant clothing that doesn’t hold odors or chemicals (don’t use cotton, wool, etc) and have secure goggles & respirator/gas mask you can make it through a situation in which chemical crowd control weapons are employed. If you have a great gear set up and heavy-duty gloves you can use the tear gas canisters fired by crowd control forces for your own purposes. Be careful though! Getting hit by a canister fired from a gun can seriously injure and/or kill you, even if it is a ricochet shot off of a wall, pavement, vehicle, etc.When Danger Surrounds…Be Aware!

The Hallucinogenic Revolution [Vol. II]: Animated Video on Social-Cultural Domination & Contemporary Chaos

I’m pleased to present the continuation of our Hallucinogenic Revolution series. The beauty of this information is it’s personal subjectivity. Along with everything we write/post, the subjectivity and importance of individual understanding is emphasized. What I try to inspire is what I find in myself when I come to intuitive understanding of  wisdom and knowledge with which I am presented. Most folks I’ve talked to can relate to that ecstatic moment that McKenna refers to as, “the Felt Presence of Direct Experience” (see Hallucinogenic Revolution Vol I, Video I for his own elaboration).

The Hallucinogenic Revolution [Vol. I]: Animated Videos on Psychedelics & Culture

Finally got around to posting one of our first articles. I’ve been studying and exploring a lot about the art of psychonautics and experimenting with the practices central to direct, psychonautic research. My research has followed many paths and had become rather dangerous. Thankfully I rediscovered these wonderful videos produced with film cutting and animation of psychedelic works of art set to lecture(s) by Terence McKenna concerning the archaic revival, self-empowerment, culture, and hallucinogens.

More to come soon!

The Return of the Blogopedialogue!

Hey Readers & Spies!

Mischief & Mutiny is returning to the world of experimental journalism and anarchistic essayism! This is due to the relatively quick, subtle, and painless death of Ashland Free Skool and renewed passion (and extra time) of the de facto editor-in-chief/writer! I’m really excited to put out a call out for anyone with any criticisms, rants, parodies, writings, philosophies, or experimental art & music to become a guest contributor or if you are slightly more dedicated why not join the dark side and become a MiMu Marauder and join Mischief & Mutiny’s crusade against arbitrary dogma, hierarchy,  social conformity, and the ignorance of “objective truth”.

As a writer and artist, I constantly seek to create my own reality through putting myself into the heat of action and aspire to bring gonzo  journalism, experimental expression, and fervent experiential learning. Mischief & Mutiny is techno-literary insurrection against objective truth and dogma.

As Hunter S. Thompson said, “The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.”
