GMO Music

GMO Music 86

Ok, somebody has to say it. I keep waiting for someone to say this, but i’m not finding it.

If i see another internet meme that says music is healing, and good for you, i’m gonna scream. Yes, it can be, but not all music is. I know this is a sacrilege to say, but i can’t help myself.

Let’s consider music as a kind of food, because we all agree, right? Music is food for the soul. Imagine a world with no music. Horrible. We would starve spiritually without music.

But food has changed lately. And at this point it’s safe to say, not all food is good for you. In fact, it is becoming harder and harder to find nourishing food. So to say music is healing and good for you, is like saying food is healing and good for you. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t. Yes, we’d die without it, but that doesn’t mean it’s all good for you. It’s the same with music.

And we have to take a stand for organic food, or it will disappear. Same with organic music. It needs support.

For me, i choose very carefully what i listen to. I want to make sure it has all the good nutrients, and that it doesn’t contain poisonous elements. And i also fast from music. Much as i love it, i love silence even more. And i definitely prefer silence to music that doesn’t contain silence. Music that contains silence has the essential nutrient, in the real sense of the word “essential”. Of the essence. The essence, is the Being. The pure existence. Essence has its root in the Latin word “esse”, which means to BE.

This is pure existence, the being, which is also bliss. SatChitAnanda, from the sanskrit, means truth, consciousness, bliss. This is the quality of being, and for me, it is the primary component of all good music, art, and, of course, of life itself. Life without consciousness is a nightmare. And to me, music without consciousness sounds like a nightmare.

So let’s be more discriminating about what we accept in our body and soul. There is a kind of GMO music proliferating now that carries a toxic kind of vibration. There is also some amazingly nourishing organic music. To put all music in the same category is misleading. Of course we all have our tastes, just like with food. But let’s use organic ingredients. Let’s support the organic, whole, and healthy, and put the toxin business out of business. This is a moment to moment choice, in every area of life. Let’s not be lazy any more. Let’s not be lousy. Let’s be our best. Why not??

OK, so if that’s the case, then how can we tell if any particular music is GMO or not? Well, that may be as tricky as trying to determine if food is genetically modified. But we might start with some extreme examples now,  just to clarify my point.

It’s getting pretty blatant now how the music from the “big music biz” in LA/Hollywood, has gone over the top, into WTF territory, wouldn’t you agree? I mean, what the hell are they pushing anyway? (with “hell” being the operative word there.)  To my ears, the music that comes from that quarter is contaminated with radioactive waste. The “radio-activity” metaphor seems to apply there, too. For the most part, the more radio play it gets in the big business channels, the more toxic it is. And in case you’re still not up to speed on Hollywood, the name of the game of the movie and music industry is to keep the minds of the masses distracted (i.e. “entertained”) while the “owners” do whatever they please with your energy and your planet.
And in no way do i mean to infer that everyone in Hollywood is like that. There are well-intentioned humans everywhere, more than we even know. But…..!

The truth is coming out now like a tidal wave, and we are finding out that the Hollywood entertainment industry is fraught with mind control programming, pedophilia, and all kinds of other perversions, in order to push the narrative of the planet into an ever darker and more distorted place. And if you listen to the music coming from this quarter, with open ears, and a silent heart, you will immediately hear the toxic element. And “toxic” is even becoming a value somehow, like it is cool, something to be admired, to be toxic. The Britney Spears song “Toxic” is a perfect example. This kind of “music” is put there to distort your values, make no mistake about it.

But there is SO much other music too, that is not catering to big business, how can we tell about that?

Well, to me, it’s the kind of thing no one can tell you, any more than people can tell you what to eat. At a certain point, if you eat enough crap, you realize you have to clean up your diet, or die. Perhaps it is like that with music too. We shouldn’t underestimate the effect of what we take in vibrationally on a daily basis, on all levels. And there is plenty of music out there that emulates unconsciously the music biz fantasy, made by those who are still mesmerized by the glitter of it all, even if they are not directly involved with the big business. It takes a particular kind of dedication and insight as a musical artist to develop your own voice and expression in the midst of all this.

We could also apply the analogy of taste. Just because something tastes good doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Perhaps with music it is the same. You may like the sound of something, but it might help to notice how it makes you (and your body) feel, during and after listening. I am not going to single out any particular music here, but i am just suggesting to listen in a different way. Listen as a conscious being, aware of many levels at once. Be silent, be still, and really pay attention. Sit with music, and hear it. Stop using it as background, wallpaper,  just to fill up space. Why is this culture so afraid of silence? Be silent, and listen. “Silent” and “listen” both have the same letters, in a different order. Silence is the expression of listening. When you really listen, your silence expands and becomes a palpable force field around you.

We have forgotten how to listen. Or, maybe we never knew how. Listening is a skill, as difficult to master as meditation. Just because sound is coming in your ears doesn’t mean you know how to listen. To be an active listener, one who is present, open, receptive, and absolutely still, is a skill that could easily take a lifetime to master. But if you allow yourself to listen from this space, without the mind and all its value judgments, you will begin to notice many things about music in a different way. And you will begin to realize, that the listener is as important in the process of music as the musician.

One quote from Osho Rajneesh has stuck with me forever: “Once you hear the sound of silence, all music just sounds like noise.” That may seem a bit extreme, but perhaps it could be true, that music that doesn’t contain silence IS nothing but noise. If not played with conscious presence, music falls flat, seems one-dimensional, no matter how technically amazing. The problem is, there is SO much one-dimensional music around that it’s getting to the point where it seems normal to us. We are used to hearing it everywhere. We’re losing the capacity to tell the difference. But it is affecting how we are creating our moment to moment reality.

Also, the energy field of the musician/composer is transmitted through the music, and is part of the vibrational “food” you are ingesting. I always notice that when i listen. Someone who is at peace in their spirit, and not trying to compete or prove anything, is so much more inviting to listen to, i don’t care what style of music it is. Sometimes you find an unknown street musician living in poverty, playing on a tin can, who has so much more to offer than the flashiest of virtuosos in an amazing concert hall.

I have to say, i am always absolutely astonished to see how much Coca Cola and McDonald’s “food” gets ingested every day by millions of people who should know better. Why be like that with music? (or food, for that matter…?)  The damage to your body and soul must not be underestimated. Notice how you feel. Do you feel more connected to Source, vitality, aliveness, beauty, love, value, bliss? …or is it just another cheap thrill that jacks up your nervous system for a while, into some kind of manic and synthetic version of “fun”, or “peace”, or “romance”?  before letting you down to a place where you require another fix, like the blood sugar crashes that accompany sugar addiction. Sugar tastes good, but it kills you.

Friends don’t let friends listen to McDonna.

Here are just two examples of music. The first is, in my opinion, organic.

Compare that to this:

Can you feel the difference?

Of course there are thousands of other examples, but hopefully this will inspire you to listen in a new way.

The Ganzfeld Effect: How To Experience Strong Hallucinations Without Drugs

The Ganzfeld Effect: How To Experience Strong Hallucinations Without Drugs 99
An experiment investigating the ganzfeld effect / Life

Sometimes hallucinations can appear in a healthy person, if he is in a homogeneous auditory and visual environment. For example, the researchers of the Arctic, who for a long time have to look at the endless expanses of ice, or the miners, after an accident, found themselves locked in a mine. 

This phenomenon is called the “ganzfeld effect”, it is the German “full field”. Some people deliberately evoke such visions in themselves. Is it dangerous for the psyche?

What is the Ganzfeld Effect?

About its existence, people knew the ganzfeld effect for a long time. Thus, the northern people who had to deal with such phenomena believed that these visions were sent to people by spirits. The followers of Pythagoras spent a lot of time in dark caves to gain wisdom by connecting with their subconscious.

When we are in a homogeneous, infinite space, where there is nothing to catch the eye, hallucinations may appear. The brain does not receive information, neither visual nor auditory. It cannot exist in reality, where there is no information, so it takes white noise as a basis and supplements it with some kind of visual picture.

The ganzfeld effect is not an aberration. It is based on the work of the brain, which needs to receive a flow of information from the senses. With the help of them, it recognizes models familiar to it, gives out ready-made templates. It does not need to be given any commands or instructions, the brain independently carries out this work. If there is not enough visual information, it complements the visual picture of sensations o its own accord, i.e. a person sees what is not really there.

This was confirmed experimentally in the 1930s by Wolfgang Metzger. His subjects, for a long time looking at a homogeneous field, began to see hallucinations. There are instructions by following which, you can evoke these visions in yourself.

To try this method for yourself, you need to find a clean ping-pong ball, cut it in half. It is advisable to turn on the red light in the room or turn off the lighting. To create “white noise”, you need to tune the radio so that only hiss is heard. You can lie down, fix the halves of the balloon in front of your eyes and wait. If you do not fall asleep, then hallucinations may appear after 10-30 minutes.

The Ganzfeld Effect: How To Experience Strong Hallucinations Without Drugs

Experts advise against doing this. Psychiatrists write that this procedure is stressful for the psyche. If a person has caused such visions in himself many times, he may develop neurotic states. But if you had to face this phenomenon, you should not worry about it, there should be no negative consequences for the psyche.

The ganzfeld effect and telepathy

It is believed that the ganzfeld effect is associated with clairvoyance. Due to the fact that auditory and visual analyzers are completely turned off, a person seems to fall out of objective reality and can plunge into a dialogue with the subconscious. It is this that creates different images in the head.

Many believed that in this way it was possible to establish contact with the universal information field and receive information from there. In the 1970s, experiments took place on the transmission of information telepathically.

One of the subjects sat in a room with dim red lighting, with halves of ping-pong balls in front of him, headphones with white noise in his ears. In another room, a second subject was sitting, trying to transmit a message using psychic abilities.

In 1983, 354 pairs of subjects took part in the experiment, 34% of the participants chose the right card from the proposed ones. In a similar 1985 study, that number rose to 37%. Given that the probability of random guessing is 25%, we can say that it was not possible to prove the presence of telepathic abilities at that time.

The Ganzfeld Effect: How To Experience Strong Hallucinations Without Drugs

The ganzfeld effect does exist, scientists have tried to study and explain it. Knowing about it, one can understand the origin of many legends and superstitions associated with caves, mines, etc. People really heard mysterious sounds and saw some figures, but all these images could be created by our brain, the work of which has not yet been fully studied.

Research confirms that “near death experience” is not an illusion

Research confirms that "near death experience" is not an illusion 100

Dr. Alexander Batthyany, a professor of psychology at the University of Vienna, has studied thousands of cases of near-death experiences. Human thinking ability has nothing to do with the brain.

Near death experience case study

Dr. Batthyany and others collected thousands of complete cases describing near-death experiences , and recorded in detail the content of the near-death’s private prosecution and doctor’s consultation.

Doctors ask dozens of questions about what the patient sees (visual), what he hears (hearing), what he thinks (consciousness and thinking), life background (such as religious beliefs, life experience), etc., such as “Have this experience before Do you?”, “Do you see the light?”, “Who do you talk about your death experience?”, “Do you believe in your death experience?”, etc., to judge and evaluate the credibility of the patient’s narration of the near death experience Degree and the patient’s mental state after death (whether normal, etc.).

Dr. Batthyany said that the results of the study are reliable and fully confirm that the near-death experience is a real mental activity rather than an illusion. He also said that research methods have certain limitations, which will lead to underestimation of the proportion of near-death experiences.

Extremely credible near-death experiences

Dr. Batthyany explained that due to the limitations of the method, cases are likely to be missed, so the actual rate of near death experience should be higher.

Dr. Batthyany explained how he and his colleagues analyzed thousands of cases by compiling and integrating medical records into a resource library (such as the NDERF website), and then using search terms related to vision (vision) or cognition (such as “See” (saw) or “thought”> search for related medical records and score them according to visual or cognitive content, and then further narrow the scope of the study, such as selecting near-death experience cases with detailed medical records. This screening method based only on search terms is likely to miss cases where there is no such vocabulary in the expression.

Dr. Batthyany said that the near-death experience cases are highly credible. They considered that thousands of cases with near-death experiences are likely to have false reports, but in the process of sorting and analyzing, they noticed that only 1% of near-death cases were deleted due to validity.

Therefore, Dr. Batthyany believes that even if there are still false cases, the number is not enough to affect the overall conclusion.

Evidence of the phenomenon

In addition to these near-death experience studies, Dr. Batthyany also pointed out that the phenomenon of back light also shows that the phenomenon of thinking consciousness is extremely complex, even in the case of severe deterioration of brain function, there can be active thinking.

Dr. Batthyany studies the back-to-light phenomenon in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Among patients with Alzheimer’s disease (ie, Alzheimer’s disease), some people have been completely incoherent for many years, but suddenly showed a marked improvement or normal thinking shortly before their death. This is what is commonly referred to as “return to light”.

According to the current neurological concept, as the brain function of Alzheimer’s patients gets worse and worse, their thinking performance should be that their memory and various thoughts and feelings are becoming more and more lost, and there is even no human thinking at all.

However, the actual situation is just the opposite. The whole state of mind of Alzheimer’s patients may suddenly become intact like a spark burst.

“Psychological Vision” of the Blind

In fact, there is also a phenomenon of “mindsight” or “mind intuition” which also illustrates the independence of thinking. “Psychovision” refers to the sight of a blind person who reports during a near-death experience.

Kenneth Ring of the University of Connecticut found that among 21 blind cases who reported near-death experiences, 15 blind people described seeing the scene and had vision.

Dr. Batthyany pointed out that some scientists believe that near-death experiences are hallucinations produced by human neurophysiological processes. However, “in this study, the results of near-death experience, rebirth, and psycho-visual phenomena suggest that patients experience near-death experiences when their condition deteriorates, die, or have no neurological activity, and it is common.”

Therefore, Dr. Batthyany concluded that even when the brain function changes or even the electrical activity of the brain stops (the EEG is flat), there is still a clear sense of self, complex visual images, and clear mental activities. And other thinking phenomena.

Even though back-lighting and psychological vision are very rare phenomena, the countless examples of near-death experiences are enough to illustrate the problem.

Dr. Batthyany wrote:

“Our research results show that the visual scene, mental state and self-awareness that people continue to appear in the near-death experience are a rule rather than an exception.”

What people see after clinical death: Stories from survivors that they would rather forget

What people see after clinical death: Stories from survivors that they would rather forget 101

Humanity still does not know much about death. Of course, it’s easy to write it off as “nothingness,” but what if in reality everything is a little more complicated? In the selection below – ten creepy stories “from the other world” from people who survived clinical death.

Recently, the user Aidanmartin3 asked near-death survivors on Reddit to describe what it was like. The post quickly went viral, with hundreds of people sharing their stories in the comments.

I was about fifteen years old. Climbed onto the kitchen counter to grab something from the top cabinet, but slipped and fell headlong onto the marble floor. The next thing I remember is walking barefoot on water. Then I look to the right, I see a very bright light and a hand, as if calling me. I go to her and suddenly realize how peaceful and relaxed I am. Like the best deep sleep ever. Then I said to myself: “Dude, this is so cool, I would never wake up.” And then all of a sudden everything disappears, and I wake up because of my mother, who is crying over me.By that time, I was already numb, cold, pulseless and even managed to urinate in my pants. As an atheist who does not believe in all this, I often think about that case.

My father died for a short while and then said that at that time he was walking along a long corridor to the door. But when he was about to open it, his father felt himself being “sucked” into his own body

He died of an overdose for several minutes.In reality, there was nothing. It’s just darkness and an incomprehensible period of time. It was almost like waking up after hanging out all night and feeling like a horse kicked in the chest.

It seemed to me that I was kind of floating in a long tunnel and I felt very tired. I remember how I fell asleep then and had a dream that I was in the kitchen of my childhood home, and dad was preparing breakfast. I heard turmoil and chaos at one end, and at the other, there was a warm light that seemed soothing. But then all of a sudden I ended up in the chaos of the emergency room.

The story of my ex-girlfriend’s mom. Her heart stopped for 28 minutes. The doctors had already told the family that she had left, and even brought in a priest to bless the room. But in the end she returned. She said that she recalls running around the field with a little girl, who, according to the woman, was her niece, in the dress in which she was buried.

I heard a loud, high-pitched noise telling me that I am still too young to die. Then he got even higher, and I saw a bright light and woke up. The ambulance driver was shining a flashlight in my eyes

Anaphylactic reaction to the deadly sting of the Irukandji jellyfish. I saw this white glow and how I soared up, then my family and the doctors and nurses who were saving me. Came back and felt a lot of pain

It felt as if my body was being filmed on a CCTV camera from a third person. Then the camera gradually moved away and rose. I became very cold and began to hear loud clanking sounds. Woke up in an ambulance to the sound of a gurney bouncing on a rough road. It was so surreal. Since then I have not been afraid of death, to be honest. It was almost six years ago, but I still think about that case several times a month.

I was hit by a car. I could see everything, blood had not yet got into my eyes. I heard all the commotion. I felt myself being pushed in the back, and then doing artificial respiration … After that I felt only the first beats of the heart and how the blood flowed through my body. The pain began to build up with renewed vigor, and then everything went black

I was pronounced dead three times. But “after death” I have never seen anything. At least i don’t remember
