Education: You’re Doing It Wrong! Hackschooling Your Kids Off Grid & Online To Inspire Creativity & Create Happiness

The old way is not the best way. We must evolve our educational experience.

classroom in schoolThe internet is essentially the largest database of knowledge ever created in the history of humankind. It is a library the likes of which has never existed before, and holds within a vast and hugely diverse amount of knowledge. This knowledge is readily accessible for ANYONE with an internet connection. (and yes, you can be off grid and online)

Logan LaPlante has used the internet (and hands on training) to educate himself and he has some great advice for us old people.

As adults sometimes we forget why we do things. We get caught up in the daily grind to make a living, keep a roof over our heads, keep food on the table, and get the kids off to school so we can get to work, that we sometimes forget that school may not be the best place to learn any more. That maybe, brick and mortar schools are on the way out, and homeschooling, is on the way in, in a BIG way.

Also, the way in which we learn is being challenged. I know from personal experience that I’m a hands on person. This is not anything special, as all human beings learn better by being hands on. Learning by memory is NOT the best way to do it. Reading a book and taking a test is NOT learning. It;s memorization and does not provide lasting benefits for the students. It’s a boring, tedious, and just plain stupid way to teach.

Individuality and Spirituality in the Age of Institutional Rule

By Ethan Indigo Smith and Andy Whiteley

Contributor

ZenGardner.com

Humanity has lost its way, but we were led astray. The very institutions we invented to secure us, failed. They have achieved the opposite, and we, the collective of humanity are forced to live in the tribal, vengeance-ruled war world from which institutions invariably profit. And even if you are not completely indoctrinated by this institutionalization, generations of the collective have been indoctrinated, and by reinforcing social “norms”, they diligently steered steer their peers further toward the cliff edge.

Throughout our society is a misguided, socially polarized perspective. Everywhere we look, the truth is deliberately conjured and obscured, leading to divergent oppositions; from the simplest to the most complex, from garden plants to nuclear power “plants”. No matter the subject, no matter the related tangential beliefs, the divergence can be summarized via one simple divider – institutionalization or individuation.

We have been collectively steered by oligarchical institutions toward institutional thinking, allowing unnatural mechanizations to be granted the rights of individuals, and enabling a culture of war, competition and separation. So where does this leave we natural, spiritual beings, who are naturally wired for peace, co-operation and oneness?

This article is a discussion of various modes of thinking, which compare and contrast institutionalization with individuation. Confusing the two, as in the latest trend of awarding the rights of men to machines, is the new shell humanity has wrapped itself in. And the divine right of institutions is now, dare I say, the essence of what the individuated around the world are rallying against, and what the institutionalized are fighting to protect.

Laughing Our Way to Destruction

by davidswanson

If members of the U.S. public were ever to wonder what the other 95% of humanity thinks about them, would it be better to break that harsh truth to them gently or just to blurt it out?

I’m going to go with the latter.

Here’s Frankie Boyle explaining the advantages of Scottish independence: “Scotland would no longer have to invade places like Afghanistan for American interests. . . . I don’t support America’s wars. I don’t even think they are wars. They’re one-way traffic, mass-murder. There’s never been a time when a shepherd has beaten a helicopter. You never switch on the news to see ‘A shock result in Afghanistan today when a missile was destroyed by a wedding.’ Because not only will America go into your country and kill all your people. But what’s worse I think is they’ll come back twenty years later and make a movie about how killing your people made their soldiers feel sad. Oh boo hoo hoo. Americans making a movie about what Vietnam did to the soldiers is like a serial killer telling you what stopping suddenly for hitchhikers did to his clutch.”

If you don’t think people find such remarks acceptable, listen to this laughter:

Living in the United States we’ve been trained to appreciate the fact that the wars do in fact make the soldiers feel sad. In fact they significantly increase rates of depression and violence and suicide. We tell each other not to blame the soldiers, rather to blame the top politicians. But then we don’t really do that, do we? Bush is off painting himself in the bathtub and otherwise doing his imitation of the original King George III during his blue urine period. Obama is cheered by his fans because his wars make him sad and he declares them with such heartfelt reluctance. But from the point of view of people who are told about non-American deaths in their newspapers and on their televisions and radios (that is, from the point of view of 95% of humanity) U.S. wars are mass-slaughter of innocents. Ninety percent of the deaths are on one side. Ninety percent of those deaths are civilians by every definition. When the U.S. says it’s going to launch another war because it opposes genocide, the rest of the world responds “We what the f%^$^! do you call your wars?”

Dozens of children feared dead after being injected with ‘tainted’ measles vaccine in Syria

‘As many as 36 children were reported to have died excruciating deaths last night after receiving tainted measles vaccines under a UN-sponsored programme in the rebel-held north of Syria.

The programme was suspended amid rumours of sabotage of a high profile international effort to ensure the brutal civil war does not result in an outbreak of measles.

Doctors in clinics in the towns of Jirjanaz and Maaret al-Nouman in the northeastern province of Idlib said children started falling ill soon after the doses were administered.’

Ebola Virus; Hegelian Dialectic for the New World Order

by redicecreations.com

Is the Ebola virus outbreak being used as a tool for the New World Order? It would seem so. If Ebola was created in a lab (manufactured problem), to create a reaction (viral outbreak in targeted areas), and now the US is sending thousands of military troops to swoop in as the saviors (solution), then the agenda is becoming clear.

Doesn’t it seem obvious where this is leading? If you examine all the examples in the past of how they have used crisis as an opportunity for their agendas then this situation is another clear example in the making.

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” – Rahm Emanuel

Problem – Reaction – Solution

Let’s examine some of where this has come from and what’s currently happening….

Citing Failed War on Drugs, World Leaders Call for Widespread Decriminalization

Global commission condemns “harsh measures grounded in repressive ideologies”

by Deirdre Fulton

(Photo: M.A. Cabrera Luengo)

In the face of a failed War on Drugs, a global commission composed mostly of former world leaders recommended on Tuesday that governments decriminalize and regulate the use of currently illicit drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, and psychedelics.

“The international drug regime is broken,” reads the report from the Global Commission on Drug Policy, whose members include former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan; former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz; former justice of the Supreme Court of Canada and former high commissioner for human rights at the UN Louise Arbour; and Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, as well as the former presidents of Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Portugal.  “[O]verwhelming evidence points to not just the failure of the regime to attain its stated goals but also the horrific unintended consequences of punitive and prohibitionist laws and policies.”

MIT Scientist Exposes Consequence of Monsanto’s Glyphosate & Aluminum Cocktail

by Christina Sarich
pesticides field mask crop toxics 263x164 MIT Scientist Exposes Consequence of Monsantos Glyphosate & Aluminum CocktailBy 2025, half the kids born in the U.S. will be diagnosed with autism, according to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She, like many others says autism isn’t just genetic – it is almost surely due to environmental factors. Just a couple of those factors are Monsanto’s RoundUp (glyphosate) and heavy exposure to a cocktail of heavy metals, including aluminum.

Dr. Seneff isn’t respected by the ivory towers of the pharmaceutical medicine paradigm or industrial agriculture, but she has something to say about autism. She is a computer scientist who transitioned into biology and toxicology, so people like to attack her credentials, but what Dr. Seneff has to say is key, and many other mainstream researchers have been negligent in reporting these findings.

She has been studying autism for over 7 years, along with the environmental factors that lead to the disease. Decreased exposure to sunlight, poor diet, vaccines (specifically aluminum and mercury), as well as glyphosate toxins from RoundUp are causing skyrocketing rates of autism. She explains this in a two-hour presentation given recently at Autism One.

Can We Hack Our Vision To See Infrared With The Naked Eye?

A team of biohackers is attempting to modify the human sensory spectrum.

By Alexandra Ossola

 With normal vision, you couldn't see this foliage at night. With infrared vision, it comes at you in full color. Dan Bracaglia

With normal vision, you couldn’t see this foliage at night. With infrared vision, it comes at you in full color.
Dan Bracaglia

“Can you imagine a color you’ve never seen?” Jeffrey Tibbetts asks, looking directly into the Skype camera. We would like to think that we can, of course, that our imaginations are limitless. But the answer, no matter how much we skirt around it, is actually “no.” However, Tibbetts insists that he himself can see another color. He, along with several friends, is part of a homegrown experiment where he has attempted to alter his vision to see in the infrared, which humans can’t usually see. The three experimenters have just completed a 25-day nutritional regimen and, as their bodies return to normal, they will continue to document their vision for the next two weeks. Very early results appear promising, albeit incomplete. But several experts in ophthalmology have doubts about the purpose and safety of the project, not to mention the validity of the results themselves.

People who want to improve how humans function span the full range of invasiveness, from gym rats who chug protein shakes to biohobbyists slicing open their flesh in basements. Tibbetts and his co-experimenter, Gabriel Licina, are solidly in between. The team spent six months reviewing previous studies to craft a nutritional protocol designed to modify their vision, bearing the mark of their backgrounds in human anatomy and molecular biology. But their acceptance of the risks reflects their rogue scientist attitude; test subjects who don’t follow the protocol, either through wrong vitamin dosage or improper diet, could go blind.

5 Natural Treatments For Mental Health

by Jeffrey Green

natural mental health treatmentsNatural treatments for mental health are becoming more and more popular. If you’ve ever seen the drawn-out health warnings at the end of a US television commercial for any type of drug, you’ll easily understand why.

A concerted effort to avoid strong medication and their awful side effects is always an effort worth making. Especially if the strong medication comes with the possibility of improving your symptoms but creating an addiction to a synthetic drug.

Good mental health means you have the ability to continually learn new information and master new skills. A healthy mind gives you the opportunity to form great relationships with others and maintain those relationships over time.

When your mind is healthy you can express your feelings adequately and also deal with both positive and negative emotions in your day-to-day life. And, finally, good mental health allows you to cope and adapt when situations change.

You should be aware that change doesn’t have to be negative to have an impact on you. Positive change brings with its own range of emotions and difficulties to deal with.

If you’re looking for better ways to ensure your mental health we recommend you check out these 5 natural treatments.

Bright light over Vancouver Island generates talk of a comet

“I thought it was a comet,” said a Victoria cabbie. “I’ve never seen anything that big in the sky.” - See more at: http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/bright-light-over-vancouver-island-generates-talk-of-a-comet-1.1356860#sthash.0eTvLn4s.dpuf

“I thought it was a comet,” said a Victoria cabbie. “I’ve never seen anything that big in the sky.”

Vancouver Island was among the areas in southern B.C. and the Pacific Northwest that generated reports of a bright light in the sky about 8:15 p.m. Saturday.

It flashed through the darkness only briefly before it was gone, said a Victoria cab driver, who didn’t want his name used.

“I thought it was a comet,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything that big in the sky.”

The American Meteor Society website recorded 115 “fireball” reports from B.C., Oregon and Washington around the same time. One report from the Malahat called the sighting “the most stunning event I have ever seen.”

Yes; wherever in the world you are reading this, I hereby order you to think of the Eiffel Tower on a rainy evening being struck by lightning. OK? Thinking about that image?

Joycamp on Red Ice Radio – Taking Culture Back & Reversing the Spell of Entertainment Brainwashing

Kevin Kostelnik and Benny Wills are the creators of Joycamp, a group of satirists specializing in raw satire that tears down the social norms. They term what they do “comedy awareness.” We’ll discuss the power of comedy to break down barriers. Then, we’ll talk about reversing the spell of the entertainment industry and taking culture back. Also, Benny and Kevin discuss Hollywood’s silence on the genocide of Palestinians and how those that do speak out against Israel are blacklisted. We’ll talk about the politically correct side of comedy and subjects that are taboo, such as Hitler. Later, we speak about the onslaught of holocaust movie programming. In the member’s hour, Benny and Kevin continue to share their reactions to the documentary Greatest Story Never Told. We’ll move on to discuss overcoming self censorship and a lifetime of social conditioning. At the end, we’ll talk about modern comedy and comedians that are being used as a weapon.

Soon Europe Might Not Need Power Plants – A New Energy Revolution Is Coming

by
powerIt’s time to join the energy revolution. Everyday, more people across the globe are starting to realize that our current ways of generating power are out-dated.

The worlds largest private bank, UBS, is urging investors to join the clean, renewable energy movement. Analysts at the bank say that power plants in Europe might be extinct within the next 10 to 20 years.

Most of the plants retiring in the future will not be replaced, large scale power plants could be on the path to extinction.”(source)

In a briefing paper sent out to clients last week, they state that centralized power stations are too big and inflexible, that they are completely irrelevant for future power generation. The report also outlined how it will be cheaper and more efficient for businesses and homes to generate their own electricity to power homes and cars, as well as store any excess energy without any subsidies.

The NAME

by Mary Elizabeth

In the 1976 movie, “Network”, Peter Finch yelled, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more.”  Why did it take us over 35 years to feel what he felt?  In the same movie, Ned Beatty says, “There are no countries; there are only corporations.”  We’ve had this information a long time. What have we been doing with it?  Trying to remain in honour? – peace? – forgiveness? – love?   None of that worked; did you notice?

In my article, wherein I wrote, “Ye are gods”, I received a few emails which suggest that people still believe in an “external authority”. The controllers do not care which “authority” that is and the “religion authority” fraud seems to be the most efficient means used to keep us from knowing who we are.  Shifting our “authority” from gov’t, money, law, over to LORD God, Allah, or whatever is just re-arranging the deck-chairs on the Titanic. There is no authority outside the God within us. Our authority is we.

A man emailed me about how to avoid the school’s threat of “vaccinate your child or she can’t attend.”  That’s easy, eh?  Talk about two wins in one fell swoop.  Which poison is worse? Indoctrination or vaccination? The issuer of such an ultimatum ought to be made to put it in writing and sign it.  On paper, it looks even stupider than it sounds. If the word, “you”, is on paper, make them define it. Who is you? 

The only thing over which they have jurisdiction is the NAME, not the man, so, if we make it abundantly clear that they can do whatever they want to the NAME, but we are not their property, they might catch on that they had better leave us alone. My ‘name’ is private and I can use it, privately, but I’d better be bloody careful if I intend to use it in public because, publicly, my ‘name’ becomes a ‘NAME’, owned by the CROWN, and my using it is in violation of §403 CCC (Personation/ Identity Theft), i.e.: fraud . Their demanding that we use it means they are enticing us to commit fraud.

The ‘Internet Slowdown’ Generated Nearly a Million Comments the FCC Won’t Read

Wednesday’s internet slowdown, a massive protest that encouraged some 777,000 people to write comments defending net neutrality to the Federal Communications Commission, was a huge success, in terms of getting people to actually write to the agency. The only problem, however, is that those comments are almost certainly going directly into the digital trash bin.

Obviously, raising awareness for a hugely important issue is commendable, and getting people to comment to the FCC on net neutrality is a noble goal, but form letters, as we’ve explored before, are not an effective way to get the FCC to change its mind on much of anything.

Image: Battle for the Net

Earlier this summer, I spoke with several regulatory law experts about the proceedings, and the general consensus was that this type of clicktivism is not actually effective in changing the hearts and minds of the people who matter.

“In theory, all comments are read and considered. In reality, most are worthless,” Richard Pierce, a law professor at George Washington University’s law school told me at the time. “Studies of other rulemakings have found that a high proportion of comments—typically 95-98%—are brief statements for or against a proposal from naïve or misinformed citizens. The agency can do nothing with comments of that type.”

Ehrr? – Chinese Government Says Dalai Lama Must Reincarnate

Author: Ancient Origins

dalai-lama

The Dalai Lama has said that he may choose not to reincarnate inside Tibet if it is not free, and that no one has the right to choose his successor for political ends.

However, the Chinese government, which has always accused the Dalai Lama of being a political separatist, says declining to reincarnate is a step too far and insists he must ‘respect’ the ancient tradition of reincarnation.

According to a news release in Reuters, the 14th Dalai Lama (born Tenzin Gyatso) explained in an interview to German newspaper Welt am Sonntag that the tradition of the Dalai Lama post could end with him, adding that Tibetan Buddhism was not dependent on a single person. The Chinese government was not amused.

China has ruled Tibet since Communist troops invaded in 1950. The Dalai Lama fled into exile in India in 1959 after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule. China has long viewed the Dalai Lama as a thorn in their side, calling him a “wolf in monk’s clothing”. However, in a curious twist, they seem to want him back again in another reincarnation.

A spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying told reporters that China had a “set religious procedure and historic custom” when it came to the reincarnation of living Buddhist lamas, including the position of Dalai Lama.

The Mystical Treasures of ‘The Golden Cave’

Author: Soren Dreier

goldencave

I touched upon The Golden Cave, as being the realm of the inner Core that we have. I would like to go further into that.

Caves with wonderful treasures have attracted explorers and bounty hunters throughout time. The idea of wonderful treasures of ancient and more present times is very persistent and when they speak of it, they have that far away look in their eyes.

Not that many have been found by the explorers of the external.

Maybe because it is a projection from the realm of our souls.

We all have this place inside that I speak about, and we guard that by maintaining the perimeters of it, so it is not easily penetrated from the outside, and maybe that’s a good thing in this world right now.

Our need for privacy expands in sync with people getting more and more self-obsessed with exposing their lives on social media. Not many things in this world have the hallmark of privacy anymore. That’s one thing and it’s an outside perimeter where I see people getting more and more transparent.

Spontaneity: Why Its Better than Having a Plan

by Nikki Sapp

take-risks “We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us” – E.M. Forster

Be born, go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, have grandkids, get old, die. That’s the plan right? Well, so we think. Unfortunately so many get stuck in this cookie cutter idea of what life is supposed to look like, only to live in constant frustration and disappointment that their life looks nothing like the standardized version. Life may drift them more and more off course, and they keep trying to control the helm by bringing it back to the life they think they should have, like the characters on TV.

Unfortunately much of their life is spent in the struggle trying to get back “on course”, or what they believe is “on course.” So much time is wasted in this struggle to no avail. Only when a person just gives up, surrenders to the tides of their life are they able to see that their idea of how things were SUPPOSED to go was causing them a constant frustration because they were never actually enjoying anything about the present moment, or the way things WERE going. Who says things have to go exactly like that? If things aren’t going exactly like the social norm does that means that things have gone “wrong”?

The fun and adventure lies in the spontaneity, in the suspense, in the uncertainty. Of course it’s fun to have goals and aspirations, things that we envision ourselves doing and ways that we can offer our gifts and talents to the world, but in order to become more open to possibilities and opportunities that are awaiting us, ones that we never expected were possible, the most important thing we need to do is stop planning our futures so rigidly.  We must allow ourselves to relinquish the need to have absolute control over every single situation, small or big. We must let something else take over, something that knows way more than we do….
