Today's walky talky, starts with the joy of sheep ! Using their inspiration, I explore how we can systematically and holistically experience the joy of the presence moment !
I recently read Robbie Graham's excellent book UFOs' : Reframing the Debate https://www.amazon.com/UFOs-Reframing-Debate-Robbie-Graham/dp/1786770237 and felt the need to explore the theme of how we perceive contact with the "other", while out walking. When I listened to this monologue I realised it was so full of wind, that I'd have to can it (which is something I've done to about 20 monologues). But given it's a long one (1:45:50) I decided to keep it. So please be warned, it's full of wind in places and there was nothing I could do to prevent it or edit it out.
In this walk I take up the issue of how humans perceive and make sense of contact with the other. We could call the other ET but it's not always clear at the time or after, that that's exactly what it is. I ask how conditioning, belief, perception and self awareness determine how we make sense of an experience. I also suggest that these things change across the human life cycle (brain freeze - I couldn't articulate this clearly at the time : http://winstonwuttunee.blogspot.com.au/p/blog-page_2171.html) and suggest that every human being having an experience sits at a certain point in the developmental cycle and as a result interprets the experience in a certain way
The point I try to emphasise is that how we perceive and the level of self awareness that we have, both determine how we see the world and how we interpret our experiences.
I suggest that contact with the other is leading us to a greater understanding of the self and reality. This understanding is helping us to grow in a way that helps us to engage more fully with the intelligence of the other.
In this walk and talk, I contemplate the different types of rituals that fill human life and how we might create our own rituals to enrich our life.
All spiritual traditons emphasize the importance of freeing ourselves from drama because drama causes suffering. I beg to differ. Drama helps us to grow and suffering is OK. In today's walky, I explore the importance of human drama and how drama reshapes our entire identity and experience of being human.
We all have ancestors alive and dead, who loom over us like long dark shadows that arouse something unfathomable deep inside of us. In this trek down the dirt road, I introduce you to 4 of my dead ancestors and share a little of who they were and what they meant to me.
We are all experts in one thing and one thing only - ourselves. It's my wish that by sharing intimate things about my own life, I strike a chord that resonates in you. And in so doing we remember our common humanity and that we are all dealing with the same fundamental issues in life.
How do we know what we know ? Part of how we know is by knowing what we are. In today's walk and wonder, I explore the idea that we can know things beyond ourselves because we are more than we think we are. Not everything appears to follow causality (cause and effect), as entanglement and spooky action at a distance would suggest. Or is causality always present - visible from many different perpectives ? When we embrace a wider perspective about what we are (through such ideas as Aspects of Self and Channeling and by deepening the well of experience), we can know much more than we would normally think is possible. What is in the way of such knowledge and experience, is our ignorance and our desire to remain comfortable in our identities.
In today's walk and talk I explore the idea that the house we live in isn't necessarily a home and speculate on what makes a home. This is a very personal monologue, in which I take you on a tour through 37 years of some of my own houses and the one place that has always felt like home.
In today's walk and talk I explore the self through the Buddhist concept of the 5 Aggregates and Process Fields (my own idea, which is simlar to Alfred White Northhead's Process Philosophy) and ask how we are to live when we can embrace a wider concept of self.
During the early part of this walk, I examine two dead sheep - who provide a real life example of the nature of the self. Don't look if images of death frighten you. These things are a part of my day to day reality and reguarly remind me of the nature of the self.
More on the 5 Aggregates here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skandha and Process Philosophy here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_philosophy / https://archive.org/details/AlfredNorthWhiteheadProcessAndReality.
In previous monologues I've suggested that real spiritual development has nothing to do developing super powers or transcending the body and everything to do cultivating awareness of mind and body and living fully within the body. In today's walk and talk, I explore some of the same ground I explored in TSM 108 - suggesting how we might move through our senses deep into the body and integrate all that arises into our awareness and in so doing, deepen the well of experience.
For those who are interested in learning ET contact, might I suggest you begin by learning how to deepen the well of experience. Begin with the body and the body will grow !
What is life ?
In today's monologue I explore the idea of the body of our life's work and the bodies of work within our life. I explore how our life is the sum of all our life's work and is reflected in the final moments of who we are in our life (or at any moment) and how at any moment we are working on a body of work, whether we are conscious of it or not. I speculate that we can consciously choose the bodies of work that fill our life - whether they are visible or invisible and suggest that a life well lived, is one in which we come to understand and develop some awareness of the nature of the bodies of work that we allow to fill our life.
My iPod gave a lot of trouble during this recording and I had to stitch together separate segments after it unexpectedly shut down. Forgive any repetititon !
In this early evening walk n talk, I step back and try and take an ET view of Human Contact. One of my great frustrations with the entire field of UFOology/ET contact is the myopic view that so many people have, in which they create a good ET vs bad ET dichotomy or a dystopian view of the cosmos. In this talk, I try and counter a little of that with common sense (which obviously ain't so common !).
The things in this monologue were probably the hardest things I've ever spoken about publicly.
Today, I open up and share my thoughts about memory, uncertainty and doubt in the ET contact experience, looking at two of my own experiences 23 years apart. I explore how contact with beings from elsewhere shatters your experience of reality and talk about why I think most people who have contact, avoid talking about uncertainty and doubt and why these things are really critical to making sense of the experience. I post this monologue with some hesitation but do so because I belive that we need to be as honest and transparent as we can be, if we are to truly understand the experience of human-ET contact.
There is some repetitive noise in the early part of the recording due to my shoes squeaking and the squeaking on my iPod cover.
All my life I've tried to care about the natural world. In today's walk n talk, I let you in on a little secret and why I made aparticular liberating choice; talk a little about socially inherited contracts and their impact on the natural world; and taunt the men of the world with the possibility of starting a new movement ! I don't profess to be the only person in the world who has liberated themselves this way and for all I know there may allready be a Free Snaker Movement ! Hang low, hang hi, be proud !

My son made a comment a few days ago that triggered a long discussion about the differences between generations and the impact that technology has on how people behave. In today's monologue I explore a little of the generational differences between people, the impact that electronic technology is having on human health (although I didn't say anything about orthopedic problems like spinal and posture related issues) and how we have allready witnessed the last of the Pre-Digital Generations. I also posit that a time is coming in the not too distant future, when there will be no one left who remembers life without electronics and explore what that might mean for humanity.

I dedicate this monoluge to Frédéric for his ongoing support and his enthusiasm for taking responsibility for his own development and for his efforts to be a better father, partner and human being ! I also dedicate this monologue to Astrid for her ongoing kindness and her continuous efforts (despite her own illness) to help others living and dead, to be free of their suffering !
In today's stroll through the land, I explore the process that some have called Direct Knowing. There are several interpretations of this concept and in this monologue I explore what you might think of as a lower level form of DK, that I believe has greater value to us in our ordinary life. I provide you with working examples of how to develop DK through all the senses and then through the collective 5 senses.
Expect to hear lots of talkative sheep !

In today's walk in the big paddock, I introduce the core ideas behind the mystical Buddha's teachings and talk a little about how my ET friend Dude changed my view of Buddhism and my own efforts to eliminate desire from my life.
Don't be offended if you are a Buddhist. This monologue is an effort to simply Buddhism and make it easy to understand. It isn't a critical treatise on significant doctrines but a gentle overview of what the Buddha may have been trying to get at.

Listen to this only if you are bored of your own stream of consciousness !
In this wafflathon I hint at how stream of consciousness works and how we might use it for creativity, exploring current or future issues in our life or in the life of the world.
Think of this as a primer in cultivating a lack of awareness !
In this quick monologue I explore how the Force from Star Wars may be real.
Today I ask the question Is Mathematics Real ? and read some notes I made on the subject from my Mathopedia note book. The book I reference in this monologue is The World Treasury of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics, edited by Timothy Ferris and the chapter I refer to is John D. Barrow's What is Mathematics ? (https://www.amazon.com/World-Treasury-Physics-Astronomy-Mathematics/dp/0316281336).

The following monologue has lots of wind in the first half.
In today's talkathon, I meander through the world of sampling and suggest a new way of seeing sampling, that spans the 5 senses and provide several examples for new kinds of perfume, music and artwork.
I omitted tallking about collage, montage or decoupage because I was feeling sick and subsequently forgot about them and because in heinsight, they're probably subjects that warant a whole other TSM.

Over the course of my blog and the TSMs I've tried my best to sketch out how to initiate your own contact with ETs and dead people. In this monologue I continue to sketch things out by exploring how best to approach contact. Some of you have heard me describe contact with various life forms as interspecies communication and a way of connecting with the greater (undivided) self. Today I explore how we might make contact with ETs, Hairy Folk (Yowies, Sasquatch, Yeti etc), those in the after life, balls of light and our fellow animals, while I enjoy the first evening fire of 2017.

TSM121 : The Agony of the Human Condition - Part 3B : Recognizing and Honouring the Needs of the Daimon
I dedicate this monoluge to Frédéric for his ongoing support and to Mauren for her recent donation and for being a long time reader/listener ! Thank you both very much for reaching out to me and for making a difference and for showing your appreciation for what I have to share !
In today's monologue I pick up from where I left in TSM114, exploring the Daimon and how we can recognize and honour the needs of the Daimon for a healthy and fulfilled life. After listening to this recording, I realised that I didn't say enough about how to recognise the needs of the Daimon - so I might take that issue up in a future monologue. I might add as well, that I wonder if the Daimon has different needs at different times in the human life cycle.
For those of you who question whether or not a Daimon really exists as a distinct entity or aspect within us, I think that's a reasonable thing to have some doubt about. My thoughts are that as an alternative to the traditional view of the Daimon, we consider that the Daimon is as a driving force, a set of urges that arises from the way different processes that arise from the interaction of mind and body. Think of it as a unique force of it's own, that emerges from the interaction of mind and body. It may have a transcendant timless nature that exists beyond each individual life or be bound to each individual life. Perhps there are many possibilities. No one can prove or disprove the existance of the Daimon ! But each of us will know whether the idea resonates as true or false.
We might also consider that it's nothing more than an idea ! An idea with great power !
TSM120 : A Rough Sketch of The Architecture & The Diamond Complex - Power Structures that Rule the World
Today's monolgue is dedicated to Sandor and Frederick for your ongoing financial support and encouragement. And to Oliver and Astrid for your ongoing friendship and openeness. I wish you all well !
I've spoken on my blog many times about a the global power structure that I call The Architecture. A structure that has both ET and human elements. In today's monologue I give you a rough sketch of The Architecture (the same basic information has been discussed on the blog previously) and a more pervasive structure I call The Diamond Complex (which I have referenced on the blog only in passing). Consider this an introduction to both. It is my wish to soon describe The Diamond Complex in greater detail on the blog. These structures represent how things really are and bypass such simple explanations as The Powers That Be, The Illumanati, The Elites, The Cabal, Bilderbergs, Trilateral Commision etc. In future blog posts, rather than naming names, I will try to map out how you too can discover certain elements of both structures.
Sorry I didn't get to talk about how surveillance and monitoring connect with all this ! I was freezing !
We're all waiting for something ? But what is waiting ? Why should we wait and when should we move ? Waiting may well be the one great virtue we must all learn to master.
I dedicate this monologue to Sandor for his seemingly endless support for yours truly ! Thanks buddy for caring from so far away ! May you discover the light within !
Many of you have heard me talk about my experience of being taken to merge with the light on an ET craft in 2011. In today's monologue I ask "What Does the Light Want From Us ?" and suggest an answer. An answer that coincides with what I believe we ought to want from ourselves.
Enjoy Dudes and Dudettes !
More than a decade ago, when I was trying to understand how reality is structured, I came up with the idea of things being assembled in certain ways. Later I learned about Assemblage Theory in systems theory, sociology and ecology and began applying the idea to other aspects of reality. Assemblage Theory is a good tool for understanding how things come together to create larger structures and 'bioscapes'. It may also be a useful tool for understanding how human and extraterrestrial civilizations arise and how the Creator Races create new worlds and places for life to evolve.

I've tackled the subject of afterlife communication before (https://etandi.wordpress.com/2015/12/27/a-simple-method-for-meeting-the-dead/), so I thought I'd follow up with a basic introduction to the subject.
In today's monologue I introduce you to two methods for connecting with the dead (connecting with the deaaaaaaaaaaaaaadddddddddddddd !) - using internal hearing (a simple form of telepathy) and an internal space.
With these methods you will be able to establish clear contact with any person who wishes to speak to you from beyond the veil we call death.
You can learn more about the Internal Contact World Method here :
A couple of corrections are required for this monologue. Percy B. Shelley lived in the Pre-Victorian era (I think it was in the Edwardian era - King Edward). And during internal contact, strictly speaking you cannot maintain the Calm Abiding state but you can minimise internal noise (mental activity) and use Calm Abiding as a precursor to starting an internal world contact session.
More on Calm Abiding here :
Please note that Calm Abiding or any type of centered meditation that excludes all mental activity is not necessary for contacting the dead (or ETs) but it can be useful. Perhaps of greater use is the process of relaxation taught by Dr Ainslie Meares (one of my heroes) in his wonderful book Relief Without Drugs (page 90 something) https://www.amazon.com/Relief-without-drugs-Ainslie-Meares/dp/B0007FTOJQ / http://stillnessmeditation.com.au/dr-ainslie-meares/.

I dedicate this monologue to Frederic and Sandor, for their on going support ! Thank you my friends for continuing to care ! This one is for you and for all those like you, who seek to honour the daimon and to live a content and fulfilled life !
We live in a human world dominated by conditioning and there is no stronger form of conditioning than our families and our formal education. In today's monologue I talk a little about James Hillman's belief that each of us is torn by the conflict between the demands of formal education (tuition) and the needs of the spirit (intuition). The needs of the spirit or daimon are sacrificed on the so alter of so called progress and achievement, at great cost to our psychological, emotional and physical well being. I use my own life as an example of someone who neglected the needs of their own daimon at great personal cost !
Today's monologue was twice as long but somehow I bumped my iPod and turned off the recorder - so I'll explore how we might recognise and honour the needs of the daimon next monologue.

The human condition is a strange beast and one that we all try to understand at some point in our life. The human condition is a condition of existence that is constantly in flux, where one thing always leads to another. Sometimes we experience things that we see as good (positive) and sometimes we experience things that we see as bad (negative). If we had perfect awareness we would probably only choose good things and omit bad things. But that isn't reality ! (As Buddha said we are all addicted to like and dislike). How boring life would be if everything unfolded exactly as we wanted it to ! So what then are the implications of experiencing bad things and what does it mean when we experience 'the left hand path' (the path less desired) ?
