Awesome! However, nothing new -- IDF has been taking on mindless zombies for 70 years.

In 'World War Z'(a terrible adaptation of a really good book), Israel is one of the few nations of the world that successfully controls the Zombie Apocalypse. Interestingly enough, by containing it behind a wall (Art imitating life?).

The metaphor is stretched even further when the successful Israeli strategy is hosed up by peaceniks. One of the (unintentionally) funniest bits of a movie that takes itself way too seriously.

I just auto-skip past any Joel clip of more than three lines -- they are all obviously cut-and-paste.

Interesting note about Indian gurus and the Internet. Back in the early '90s bringing computers into India was highly restricted. Just going through customs with my laptop took an hour of paperwork. However, gurus who were involved with publishing religious literature could freely bring in all the latest computer equipment and publishing software. The Hindu community in India has a decade long head-start on everyone else there in the generation of religious spam.

The surname "Sheldrake" did catch my eye however. It was the name of Fred MacMurray's evil character in the classic comedy,'The Apartment'.

FOOLING THE PUBLIC

What Rupert Sheldrake, Deepak Chopra, Dean Radin and Bruce Lipton fail to understand is that consciousness is not a thing but that it is an activity of matter in various states of organization with consciousness peaking in the complex human brain.

Consciousness is closely tied with electrical activity if it is not a direct manifestation of electricity in various stages of material organization.

These psi researchers are neither deeply intellectual nor are they yogis who have direct access to the field of consciousness with its numerous states and so they've made a mess of the science of consciousness by drawing on the crude information found in religious texts attributed to bronze age barbarians - Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, Krishna and others.

Well, the flip side, as expected, is that these psi writers are minting millions of dollars through their books, healing centers, public talks and promotional vids by fooling the masses who largely being anti-science lap up such woo woo.

Hi there.

ha ha ha

I've come to the end of my researches in mind-matter using yogic experience and scientific evidences.

I am in touch with leading mind-matter researchers and with some mainstream scientists in this regard.

The mainstream scientists (though they lack the most crucial thing which is yogic experiences) are more in tune with the reality than the psi researchers like Sheldrake, Radin, Chopra, Lipton and others.

The psi researchers like Sheldrake, Radin, Chopra, Lipton and others lack incisive intellectual arguments on the matter of sentience and have zero yogic experience. So, they're losers on both fronts. Fritjof Capra is a bit different when compared to the crackpots mentioned above since he's both a trained particle physicist and has some exposure to a direct yogic experience which completely transformed his life.

I ment to respond to your comment re: the Bible's veracity etc but can't find it.

"The Bible" is only a compilation of stories that were passed around, verbally for hundreds of years before a few were cherry picked and put to writing by ancient Hebrew scribes with the typical bias endemic to all mythologies.

The are far more Extra-Biblical documents recording the Regional History in which "Israel" is rarely or never mentioned.

“IN ANCIENT EGYPT, CANAAN REVISITED WITHOUT ISRAEL”

http://ashraf62.wordpress.com/2012/03/17/in-a...

EXCERPT "In his article “Deconstructing the Walls of Jericho“, appearing in Ha’aretz (29 October 1999), Ze’ev Herzog calls the mention of Israel on the stele a reference to “population group of nomads” who most probably were always on the move, looking for fertile land to herd their animals. In the article Herzog concludes.

“Following 70 years of intensive excavations in the Land of Israel, archaeologists have found out:

The patriarchs’ acts are legendary stories, we did not sojourn in Egypt or make an exodus, and we did not conquer the land.

Neither is there any mention of the empire of David and Solomon.

Did you know that Egypt is mentioned in the Holy Bible approximately 700 times (Egypt: 595 times, Egyptian(s): 120 times).

Israelites were mentioned in the ancient Egyptian records once or … maybe none at all."CONTINUED

All of the Ancient Mid East Mythologies aggrandized their military prowess, building projects Glorified Heros. I’ve seen Assyrian reliefs in which the King has his foot on his opponent’s throat, Egyptian Kings were portrayed in larger size than his soldiers and the Hebrews were no different in their claims to mystical, overblown glory and heroic victories even to this day.

It is only because the Romans chose Christianity with its Judaic roots that Judaism is as widespread as it is today.

Israel would be non existent without Colonial Power meddling and US Military and financial aid.

The McMahone agreement is among the many ways in which the Native Arabs were defrauded and are, today, justifiably resentful:

“The McMahon Agreement”
http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/mcmahon....
EXCERPT “The McMahon-Hussein Agreement of October 1915 was accepted by Palestinians as a promise by the British that after World War One, land previously held by the Turks would be returned to the Arab nationals who lived in that land.

The McMahon-Hussein Agreement seemed to directly clash with the Balfour Declaration of 1917. CONTINUED

The fruits of Colonial meddling and America’s $ Trillions has resulted in a Genocidal entity that is not even a State and has been found guilty of Genocide via its own State Policy:

“Israel’s “Plan Dalet”: The Green Light for Zionism’s Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine”

http://www.globalresearch.ca/israels-plan-dal...

EXCERPT “On that day in 1948, two months before Israel’s unilateral declaration of independence in defiance of the will of the organized international community as it then was at the UN, Zionism’s in-Palestine political and military leaders met in Tel Aviv to formally adopt PLAN DALET, the blueprint with operational military orders for the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.” CONTINUED

“The UN did NOT create Israel”

"...was it true that Israel owed its very existence to the U.N., as it became popularly ”CONTINUED

For America’s Trillions of dollars and sacrifice of thousands of US lives, we get a Genocidal, little entity with its roots in Nazi Complicity.

DOER AND WITNESS = EXCITED STATE AND GROUND STATE

The brain-em generated consciousness has a dual aspect - one is its exteriorized state which involves itself in observing/participating in outside events or in getting involved with bodily functions, while the other part of consciousness stays back and watches from behind.

These are the dual modes of operation of the consciousness generated in the brain which could correspond to two different frequencies of em waves in the brain - one, the excited state which corresponds to the frontal consciousness, the other the ground state which is equivalent to the witnessing poise of consciousness. With practice, one can identify with the witnessing part of consciousness and remain in a state of stato-dynamic peace, while the frontal aspect can involve itself in its usual activities and be controlled by the former, if need arises.

FRIJOLES: Look forward to reading your published results in the Journal of Applied Yogology.

JOEL: Nah, nothing of that sort,(Dad).

I'm extremely privileged to have experienced much of the reality through yogic experiences and to know that these altered states of consciousness with concomitant paranormal phenomena exist and at the same time I am pleased with my rationality backed by scientific education/scientific evidence.

I have seen some the best that's to be seen in both these worldviews.

Now, is the time to sit back and unwind after so many years of hard work and suffering.

The conclusion that I've reached is this: The aim of life is to know the reality subjectively as well as objectively.

Subjective experiences of the reality should manifest in the physical and by making good use of the intelligence objective methods like the scientific method should be worked out in a realistic manner to give us a glimpse of the reality.

However, both these methods suffer from limitations - the subjective method can lead to bizarre interpretations and to hallucinations if not grounded in reason, while the objective method can lead to superficial conclusions based on flimsy (or incomplete) inferential data.

Even if a yogi enters the deepest state of consciousness he gets so lost in the experience of consciousness that he loses sight of the basis of consciousness which is matter, while, working with superficial data like CMB (and mathematical tools that're subject to Godel's propositions), the scientist never gets a direct glimpse of the cosmic event nor can he ever hope to replicate nature's processes like singularity (if it exists), vacuum state, Big Bang, dark energy, Higgs field, supernovae, black holes, quarks, sentience, sentient cell and the like.

So, instead of wasting the whole of life in such pursuits that're incomplete by being fanatically inclined towards any of these extreme methods - subjectivity and objectivity - the best approach is to mix both these methods after coming to some sort of definitive conclusion based on direct experiences and inferential scientific data and then to sit back and enjoy life and to make every attempt to use science and yogic experience, without obsessing on either, to uplift humankind and to usher in an era of peace at the individual and at the collective level.
