The Something Monologues

TSM132 : An ET View of Human Contact

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 !).

TSM131 : Memory, Uncertainty & Doubt in the ET Contact Experience

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.

TSM130 : The Environmental Crisis, Socially Inherited Contracts and the Free Snaker Movement

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 ! 

Enjoy !

TSM129 : The Last of the Pre-Digital Generations

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.

TSM128 : Direct Knowing

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 !

TSM127 : An Introduction to the Buddha’s Teachings and Why They Are No Longer as Important to Me

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.

TSM126 : Stream of Consciousness

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 !

TSM125 : Is the Force from Star Wars Real ?

In this quick monologue I explore how the Force from Star Wars may be real.

TSM124 : Is Mathematics 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).

TSM123 : The Art of Sampling

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.

TSM122 : Contact with ETs, Hairy Folk, Dead People and Balls of Light

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.  

Enjoy !
