--- Apart from the influence acquired by an individual over the blended consciousness of a machine, the mere blending itself produces an effect upon the molecules of the substance of which it is made. Iron which has formed part of a machine, and so has experienced what is for it this exaltation of consciousness, may be thought of as somewhat more developed that iron which has not been used in the building of a self-contained SYSTEM. It has become capable of responding to additional and more complicated vibrations, and that for a mineral is evolution. It is more awake than other iron.

 

--- We know how the life of the elemental essence of the astral gathers itself up into a kind of personality (which we call the desire-elemental) and exists for a time as a separate being with definite desires and dislikes of its own, and with sufficient power to exercise a great effect in the course of its life on the man whose vehicle it informs. We know that the similar consciousness animating the cells of the body manifests itself in certain instinctive movements. In a way, analogous to this, the consciousness which animates the molecules of certain minerals will combine into a temporary whole when those molecules are welded together into a definite form; and especially is this the case when that form demands the presence and attention of man, as machinery does.

 

--- Success [] depends on the absolute confidence of the operator; a man who doubts his own capacity has already failed.

 

--- Remember that we are dealing with no vague abstraction, but with a physical though invisible fluid, which permeates the matter of the body and exudes through the pores of the skin, or is PROJECTED from the hands or feet.

 

--- Suppose that a man gains knowledge. He may impart his gain to a hundred others, yet he himself would have lost nothing. Not only so, but even others, to whom he does not impart it, will gain indirectly from his possession of it. Because he has this added knowledge, he is by so much a wiser and useful man; his words should be the more weighty, his actions the more sagacious, and so others around him should be better for his learning.

 

--- The wise man realizes that truth is a many-sided thing, not commonly held in its entirety by any one man, or by any one set of men; he knows that there is room for diversity of opinion upon almost any conceivable subject, and that therefor a man whose point of view is opposite to his own may nevertheless have something of a reason and truth in his belief. He knows that most of the subjects over which men argue are not in the least worth the trouble of discussion, and that those who speak most loudly and most confidently about them are usually those who know least.

 

now, NOLAN VOID...

 

wow, he really knows what he's talking about...

1913. what a trip...

SOUL OR SYSTEM!

the world that cw leadbeater envisioned in 1913 is quickly becoming our reality!!

i have seen that utopia. in the eyeonasphere...

inside of the helmet - inside of my mind - i see things in new ways.

 

then when i remove the helmet from my head - i'm back in this awful, cruel world...

struggle, pain, strife, and stress - everywhere i look...

- passed on to us by the media...

inundation of negativity...

- through the new language that didn't exist in leadbeater's day - MEDIA.

unlike mere body language - or our 'languages' of words and numbers - broadcast media can penetrate the human psyche, crossing all boundaries and giving us insights into the different outlooks of different people like never before.

soul or system is the way...

OUR WORLD, AND EVERYTHING THAT WE PERCEIVE, IS BROUGHT FORTH AS A MANIFESTATION OF THAT WHICH WE BELIEVE - AND THE EYEONASPHERE WILL SHOW US HOW TO FORMULATE BETTER BELIEFS IN ORDER TO PLAY OUT A BETTER LIFE.

aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....
