In this episode I share part one of a commentary I did on the Ray Kurzweil documentary Transcendent Man

My Non Verbatim Show Notes:

What mollison said in the beginning of in grave danger of falling food, basically that some of us have the dream of colonizing space, I don’t think we’d be very welcome guests if we defoul our own planet

if that is the final frontier, that hasn’t been destroyed or polluted and colonized, male ego oriented curiosity

if we go out into the intergalactic ecology, seek out new life and civilizations will we have skeletons in our closet, if we can responsibly redirect the momentum of the tech, and apply them to our defouled nest, after a few generations maybe a few millennia, proving we can responsibly our apply our gifts and genius to enhance our home native garden planet

I wish someone would come down, classic alien ufo archetype, we’ve got all your solutions right here, but we’ve got some stipulations first, first repair the damage, redistribute wealth, you have a blue print called permaculture

when we come back in 1000 years, you’ve cleaned up your mess, then we’ll give you what some of you desire so feverishly, that would be supreme cosmic justice, if that carrot can be dangled from a higher technological force

maybe a civilization that had come to maturity, reconciliation of masculine and feminine energy, habitat of their own planet

shamanic accounts of encounters with extradimensional entities that have succeeded in all these ways

similar growing pains in consciousness and tech, became ethical and utopian

overcome patriarchy

it’s taken for granted, so embedded, patriarchy in the course of tech evolution in the language of mankind, even transcendent man, male dominant technological trajectory

take for granted that it’s human destiny to leave the planet, even that tendency is gender bound, if you acknowledge that the majority of mechanization, last few thousands years, male centered,

less scientific, more philosophical, terence mckenna’s novelty theory, 16 billion years evolution of known universe, first types of matter, complexifying into more complex forms, the building blocks of life, spiral of transformation, does seem to have a constant mathematical laws governing it in some way

it became epigenetic in the hands of human consciousness, considering the human neocortex to be the most complex and interconnected, dense artifact in the known world, evolution of consciousness into form

breaking the genetic biological evolution, from our imagination into our tools and machines

both mckenna and kurzweil saying it’s a natural law, acceleration is happening, dropping down from the genetic matrix into human hands

all accept that, we have been gifted with the power, and the responsibility to carry forth that accelerating curve of evolution, don’t think it was handed to the male, but the patriarchal power structure, social structures have been the dominant force that have been in place since that last few 1000 years

thought experiment, are we destined to explore outer space, if you look at eco feminist perspective

male dominant patriarchal society, some of critiques I’ve heard, why would we want to leave, this is our home, the urge to leave it would be a absurd

if you’re living in a totally nourishing edenic state of abundance, consciousness all of desires being met with immediate ecology, look out in distance, past a desert, would you really want to risk it, why would we want to go to mars, why go suffer and be there just to say that we did it, to put the flag down

different kinds of eco feminist, I’m more of an essentialist, inherent biological connection to earth from human female perspective, some arguments, males are disconnected from the life cycle, they don’t carry a child, don’t menstruate, aren’t affected by moon as much, not as intuitive, separated estranged male ego to build vast enterprises of machine technology, alien to the program of life on earth

ability for that trajectory to be directed by the estranged half of the species, leads to desire to colonize mars because we defouled our own planet

let’s say all of that acceleration of returns, I like the way kurzweil said it, not quoting, platform of tools and tech at one stage, become the means to develop the next stage, that law holds true for building blocks of life, of matter, and so on to human designed technologies, if we look at all those accelerated returns from 16 billion years ago, big bang, all of those returns up until 100k years ago when humans really started to take on that curve of accelerated returns if we just look at that last segment where humans started, the last few 1000s years, the returns that have happened are totally rooted in patriarchal agendas of controlling matter, territory, warfare all these very alienated from nature types of agendas, thought experiment what would it look like, not suggesting matriarchal, just a partnership, partnership vs dominator societies, more elegant way of confronting patriarchy, there are partnership modes and dominator modes

shamanically guided hunter gather bands, foraging societies, in most ways equal, did not have dominating power dynamics, resources, sexuality

only in the last few thousands years since dominator culture emerged,

we’d still have the same amount of change, and develop if we had the partnership way

the permaculture dream, end point on earth, super hyper advanced rate in next few years/decades, I consider that to be the more feminine possible utopian future, we direct all that will, curiosity, to making a good home for ourselves on earth, really master that, from that foundation that platform, if there is that will to go live on a desert planet for no reason, so be it, but you’ll have to do it through astral projection, but to destroy your home planet, captain of space ship earth, misogynist prick sacrifice all of nature for these totally corrupt conquests of dimension

Transcendent Man Pic

In this episode I share part one of a commentary I did on the Ray Kurzweil documentary Transcendent Man

My Non Verbatim Show Notes:

innocense of getting into science

geniuses that could be reached, extremely high level stuff

hip to environmental technologies

nano solar technology

once you get the download of the permaculture conceptual framework it becomes a lens you can apply to all different aspects of reality

social, personal, ecological, all these different landscapes

exciting when can share that skill set, that tool kit with other people who have different backgrounds, apply to their core competency

if kurzweil, had that imprint of permaculture

imagine how his algorithmic thinking about exponentiality and the potential of hyperspeed implementation of these technologies on the horizon

if that level of awareness and direction, genetics, nanotech, and robotics, leading to singularity, I was thinking about diy, there’s potential

kurzweil’s law of accelerating returns, anything is possible at this point, when I was watching beyond sustainability on youtube with david holmgren, inevitability of peak oil, unless a sci fiction outcome happens, energy source to power current and growing demands, that would be the only way we wouldn’t have to experience involuntary simplicity

immediately I thought, that is a factor, if anybody is going to ask is that possible or what would that look like, it would be someone like kurzweil, who’s crunching the data

making logical predictions, conclusions not widely accepted, anything is possible state of mind

getting that introduction to his data and his outlook, gave me a lot of hope, a good medicine, not a full antedote, but a medicine for the people getting depressed by the grim prospects

even the people doing the great work to install permaculture landscapes, its the most invigorating medicine you can have

the odds aren’t against us if you look at kurweil’s perspective, anything really is possible, the nano-solar implementation, a big problem of course is that even if there really was a major new energy source unveiled,

it would require the re-engineering of all the infrastructure people have, always will be haves and have nots even if there’s a new wave of technology

because of the socio-economics of the way the world is structured under patriarchal industrial capitalism,

distribution is not gonna be equal, the other 90%

futuristic sci fi perspective, feel 3 different variants, 1 being mad max version, 1 be blade runner, 1 would be star trek version

in mad max, you have the failure of the singularity delivering us from all of our problems, perfecting all of our weaknesses,

techno-pessimistic perspective, we’re not gonna make it

in the star trek world, that is the scenario where, I don’t know how much they deal with what actually happened on earth, but you get the idea from the star trek legacy, they were able to solve problems with technological innovation

techno utopian future, battles with different interests throughout the universe, but earths’ evolution of technology led in a positive, utopian direction

then in the middle, I’m more in sync with, the blade runner, cyber punk techno dystopia, corporate fascist,

all owned, proprietary, owned , locked down, corporate controlled, suffer in toxic hell on earth, if you can’t afford, implants, filters, get on board escape pods, haves vs have nots

meeting in the middle of kurzweil techno optimism, I don’t think it’s totally likely that we’ll have across the board complete decimation of modern society, and return to a barbaric mode, iron age, bronze age, chiefdom societies

what mad max portrays is what did exist for 1000s of years of early civilization, settled societies, food producers, ransacked by hordes, unable to maintain national boundaries with air strikes and massive military, order of law, international commerce

total collapse, partial collapse,

digitized food, digitized clean area, nano everything, robotic everything

I was really impressed with the time lines, it came to my mind, if you could do a time lapse on human implements, watch them shrink from giant medieval, carriages, cuneiform, glyphs, the scale of computation, transportation, all kinds of different devices and machines and time lapse that so that at a certain point it gets smaller and smaller until it disappears and become invisible

tightening spiral of evolution and change, totally makes sense, the frontier of nano machines

I’m pretty convinced, if that trajectory of exponential shrinking of machines is upheld then we can expect to have this nano frontier to be working with

if the political will was there to be doing things like soil remediation and soil building and all that kinda good stuff, way more interested in that than creating nano blood cells, and expanding human life span to be immortal

my critique of kurzweil on that level is that, he would do well to study shamanism, an earth bound orientation to being an organism, shamanic traditions, its okay to die, what’s after death isn’t that scary, there’s ways to encounter the after life while you’re alive so you’re not afraid of it

I feel free grotesque aspirations about messing with human life span, the way we fight disease, understanding that there are precedents in human history, living in ways appropriate for the ecosystem, humble the male ego, that just can’t be a peace

he talked a lot about the suboptimality of the human organismic design and programming from a dna perspective, not my area of interest

I’d much rather solve the issues that affect life on earth period, not extending the human life span, not buy our way out of the natural consequences of being out of balance on a personal level, why you have disease

all for using tech to help people, but giving someone the ability to cheat the consequences of lack of exercise, poor diet, out of balance with local ecology, distribution of wealth and opportunity throughout the world

those are my ethical boundaries

if he of all people had permaculture principle, ethical framework installed

something else I really get, gram bell, permaculture way, the spiral of intervention, a few ethical procedural, methodological points to it

having to do with problems on the landscape, predators, disease, the largest part of the spiral the base of it, would be to do nothing, wait and see if problem solves itself, next stage would be mechanical intervention, biological, intervention, last of all chemical, if you’re looking at solving problems in a food production landscape, example of predators eating your life stock, you could do nothing and see if it balances out

happened upon a documentary called collapse, based on Jared Diamond’s work, how societies choose to succeed or fail, focusing on the ones that collapsed and one’s that were facing collapse but were able to turn it around

sentiment I thought of for a while, when all these high civilization’s we’re at there peak, moments away from total collapse, hyper extension throughout the landscape, everything coming down to deforestation, water supply issues, all rooted in misuse of the landscape, creating surplus not returning to the landscape, or the people, all funneled to the ruling elite, work on the collapse of societies

they would not have dared imagined that they were so close to the edge

the ruling elite acknowledges the threats but not taking it seriously enough

we have this faith in science and technology to rescue us, depending on how much you bury your head into the data

so I’m all on board with the potential, techno optimistic positive singularity potential

as some one who studies survivalism, looks at barriers to those infinite possibilities, let’s say without serious friction the rate of change will continue to increase, all those frontiers of genetics, nano tech, and robotics will flower and unfold, feel sick to even use that metaphor, but if this truly is to be the flowering of human consciousness, I feel very alienated from earth, very dangerous, extreme forms of violence, warfare, I would much rather this would not unfold, but I don’t think it’s possible, save by divine intervention, a massive plauge, we were so close, so close, if there would have just been another couple years of cheap energy and water, these institutions developing these technologies and these frontiers, we would have gotten to that point of technological salvation, or infinite possibilities in those spheres

we pushed the limits so far, its not assured, it’s not guaranteed, that trajectory is not gonna be clothes lined and immediately fall because of how far stretched

if only we’d learned from the mistakes of previous civilizations that have collapsed at the peak of their technological prowess

the fact is, the thing that’s most pressing to me is we are so abundantly aware of how previous civilizations have collapsed, total hubris towards natural limits, breaking laws of nature to build these empires, then getting smacked down immediately and losing huge chunks of information to illiteracy in the dark ages, and entropy and erosion, the decay of texts and whatnot

in life after people the history channel series, they showed how the information technology that we have built up will have the least longevity in the face of natural entropy, we can’t control the climate of our documents, can’t keep the sunlight out, the buildings start cracking, all the digital information storage, almost immediately dissolved, it was the civilizations that used stone media to tell there stories and to keep their histories, that will actually be what lasts, a big part of me thinks that, as arrogant as previous collapsed society was and to think of what was on their technological horizon at the point that they got smacked down, it was probably just as grandiose, they could have achieved their hopes and dreams if they hadn’t outstripped their resources, warfare over resources, social psychological question, more than a mechanical technological one, will the population of the earth have a paradigm shift

the paradigm shift is the wild card factor, is that paradigm shift possible, we know its possible to have power and control, but whether or not people rise up to create that paradigm shift in ethics and principles, permaculture will be the most powerful intervention to that trajectory and help really give us a chance at a positive future

Introduction to Warrior Tantra and Sexual Self-Defense TPP250

Warrior Tantra PicIn this episode I share the original Warrior Tantra introduction lecture from early 2017

My Non Verbatim Show Notes

Our relationship to violence is highly distorted, very unrealistic, we have the horrors of the battlefield in military conflicts throughout the world

secret hidden violence of fathers abuse children and spouses

violence in cartoon, video games

is a such a thing as healthy or sacred violence, expressed in martial arts around the world,

principles and ethics of defensive fighting, to defend self, land, family, way of life, community, is tempered with a feminine wisdom

the ideal for all militarys nation states, who have at least paid lip service to the idea that we’re not trying to be barbaric, colonize, conquer, might is right, warlord organized violence to build empires, supposedly in the modern world we’ve evolved past that ideology

beautiful martial arts systems, at their core essence pushing forward that ethic, appropriate violence, sacred violence, not be abused for one’s own self gain

most spiritual traditions, discipline, being a warrior is different from being a soldier, being a defender of a culture, of your people, hoping will evolve to all people and all life

to be a spiritual warrior is to overcome racism, sexism, homophobia, borders and boxes, unnecessary antagony between lifestyles, regions, histories

many of the would be warriors, who have been trained to be soldiers now are fighting battles that are rooted in old paradigms of thinking where there was much less expansion of consciousness around love and acceptance and compassion, this is all the great spiritual battle that’s taking place all over the globe, for 1000s of years, impulse to create peaceful harmonious regenerative communities that are not expansionist, striving to maintain ecological balance, and the cultures using violence to conquer, colonize, take land by force, rape and pillage

the call to action for this brand, a lifestyle, an upgrade to both being a martial artists and being a tantrika to be practicing warrior tantra,

I’m hear to open up a discourse to merge sacred sexuality with sacred violence, I’m not a guru, I’m not going to have all the answers for everyone on their individual path

but what I will do with my training and my knowledge is to create a space where we acknowledge that the dimensions of combat and warfare are beyond our physical bodies

it goes into our emotional space, our intellectual space, our sexual space, many dimensions where we can be attacked so it is only reasonable, logical, sensible, to develop defensive tactics in all areas of our life

violation is very complex, and we can be violated through sound waves going into our ears, from light beams going into our eyes, wounds from physical violence that heal faster and more complete than wounds from sexual violence, it’s a continuum, and there’s multi dimensions

what you may or may not find in a martial arts studio or training system would be some of the more spiritual components that you would find in tantra or sacred sexuality where you’re creating boundaries and owning your space, on multi dimensional levels and mastering arts for self preservation and protection, in multiple dimensions of your being

there are places where you can go and learn how to be a better lover, be a master of your inner emotional state, spiritual trainings and traditions, sexual mastery wisdom traditions, and there are places where you can study the arts of defending the body, using weapons, blades, sticks, firearms, your own bodies natural weapons, in the original what I would say is the roots of tantra, these two, now polarized, are you a lover or a fighter, in the early days you were both, people were less dependent on military, state, government, police force, systems, people had to defend themselves and their community on a daily basis and it was really all down to earth

the arts of loving, the arts of fighting, all very deeply intertwined, every person was included in some of the earliest forms of martial arts training, this is what I believe we can restore is a very localized systems for teaching sacred sexuality and teaching self defense and martial arts, bringing it all together

self love self esteem, really the core of it all

it’s a positive feedback loop, a positive upward spiral of self love, conditioning your connection to the divine loving yourself more and more, having the physical confidence of training so that you can defend yourself in all kinds of battlefields, seen and unseen

defend your sacred self love and your integrity, bodily integrity, sexual integrity

the sanctity of the boundaries of your body image itself, we’re being attacked in so many ways, always attempting from billboards to boyfriends, to girlfriends to all the kinds of porn, you can develop a sense that these negative assaults on your divine self loving sense of perfection as you are, they’re attacking and corroding that inner essence of self acceptance and love and beauty

you could be a really good mma fighter or boxer or combat soldier and still have a brokenness inside that makes you susceptible to false leaders and fighting for the wrong reasons, its really an opportunity to balance those aspects and build a foundation of deep powerful, timeless eternal self love that will radiate a defensive field around you

through physical combative training and physical conditioning, combined with the spiritual, emotional, sexual defensive training and conditioning I can speak from experience I’ve had to defend myself in mortal combat scenarios, I had to fight for my life when I lived on the street, there were times, other compromised circumstance, I can speak from that experience of being a warrior on the street, and also as a survivor of abuse I’ve had to

escape kidnappings, escape from arrests when I was sometimes an outlaw, I’m here to help people avert those catastrophes

you should never have to defend your body from a lethal attack, and you should never have to defend your body from a sexual attack, I’ve done both, I’ve survived both and sometimes in the same context

we live in threatening world

if we have system of self defense that evolves and understands that new threats are emerging everyday, the martial arts systems that were developed 100s if not 1000s of years ago

in some of the tantric scriptures it was very explicitly warned that we were approaching a time where the threats of sexual violation by men are going to increase, by horrific, on a mass scale

the corruptibility of male sexuality by in very clear terms, its a state of possession

whatever scientific faith you wna tto have about whether or not the demonic realm and demonic entities and species are real or not real, that’s optional

I’m not going to impose any belief system around where these forms of sexual violence are coming from, but it’s just a matter of doing a bit of research on the data, that we are in a world that is more threatening to women and children than ever, on a mass scale

the most intrusive vector of these patterns of violence, it was television, now its the internet, its the effect of high speed internet pornography, is the bleeding edge of what in the hindu tantric scriptures, the sort of prophecies about this time, they didn’t predict the internet, the development of photography, cameras, films, but I dare say they would not be surprised that the intentions of the entities that they had been in combat with spiritually, that they wrote great epic scriptures and mythologies about, the need to have a spiritual warrior practice to defend against the entities that are hell bent on making hell on earth mainly through every form of violation imaginable

they are understood to be very creative, and merciless

and you see that in the porn that people are addicted to, that young boys are being initiated into as their default sexual education

it’s a very horrific, systematic, fracturing corruption of male sexuality, and the stats on abuse are just staggering

its propagating and spreading like a virus

the need for women and children to be trained in practical self defense and I say more importantly in practical self defense than in martial arts systems that were designed for a different era

they came from a different place and different time where the the threats were different

so my point is to say that, new adaptations of the martial sciences have got to be designed to meet the threats of the modern era

the idea that we were gonna be inundated with demons, hell on earth, infecting men, women have to take up arms to defend themselves and their children against these men, I call them rape zombies

the horror stories I hear from just people in the dating world, something is off, the men seem to be glazed over, hollowed out, and the shit that comes out of their mouth

and the acts they attempt to conduct in the bedroom, the psychology of date rape

that’s where we’re dealing with, these hollowed out shells of young men, and old men, who, in the tantric terminology, their heart chakras have been shut down in encrusted, not just blocked, but actually strategically infested and debilitated, by real trans-dimensional biological entities that are not necessarily transmitting through the tv set, this the great leap, until we have the science to prove it

you can compare my statements to your own personal experience, talk to women who’ve been abused, anyone who’s a survivor, who’s had to stare down that hollow, unloving, uncompassionate, manipulative, psychopathic, sociopathic, gaze of a predator

anyone who’s had that experience will most likely help people who haven’t had that experience, and help the perpetrators of these crimes understand that they have been hacked

whether from watching porn, or watching violent movies, or watching violence going on around them, its not that the demons jump through the television set, or through the screen from porn, it’s that we’re all vibration, we’re all frequency and vibration, in the unseen surrounds of our physical environment, physical body, potentially infinite overlapping dimensions where non human intelligent entities are always attempting to take up space in our energy field, thereby become parasites, and extract our energy in order to feed themselves and their families, live in their parellel dimension, sucking our energy from us, and I don’t like to use the words holy and unholy, but in order to be a defender of your body temple, and effectively protect those who are most at risk of sexual violation

there are skills and art forms designed by the tantrics 1000s of years ago to buffer those influences from the underworld, if you want to use a classic shamanic term

although its not technically below us, its not below the floor, it’s not down there per se, we’re in a soup of beings all around us at all times

if we engage in practices of self purification then we become less susceptible to the penetration and influence of all different types of being that are just swimming around us on or in the astral plane

the tactics of self defense, if in order to defend yourself you had to understand at all times there are intelligent parasitic entities floating around all of us, there are places where their ability to perforate and puncture our auric field our energetic shield, that’s around our body, it can be trained and conditioned and developed to be less penetrable

obviously if you just do an experiment and go down to the local dive singles bar, and you do some practices of meditation to attune yourself to your own energy field, you can start to sense attacks from people’s eyes, from people’s words, from billboards, messages all around you, its more than meets the eye

what’s happening is when you react to people places and things around you you consciously or unconsciously shift your vibration in that shifting of vibration you are then potentially susceptible to these attacks

they always say, dress warm in winter because you’ll catch a cold, it’s not actually that your temperature will give you the cold, its that the cold viruses are all over you and all over the place everywhere and your immune system, when it’s not compromised by your body being cold, it has the power to just continually fight off all those attacks, and you don’t even know it you’re just happy and healthy and you’re not sick you don’t have a cold, but the cold viruses are all over you, and what it is that protects you is the health of your immune system

if you drink alcohol, your immune system is being debilitated by your drunkenness

the point is that to walk through this world as a spiritual sexual warrior you have got to own and love your space and develop that fine tuned awareness of what causes you to compromise your sexual spiritual auric immune system

if you have a strong sense of purpose and you have a strong connection to the earth and to the divine, however you structure that from whatever tradition, you will become practically immune to all forms of attack, most forms of attack occur when your energy is skewed

a lot of women who get repeatedly raped and end up in repeated abusive relationships, when they’re questioned and speak honestly about these patterns, there’s a really sort of self destructive, self sabotaging urge to just be put out of the misery of existence, and so just falling into every trap, falling into ever more cascading emotional, physical, sexual violence its heart break to watch those patterns unfold for people

you can’t just put a gun in their hands, or even just teaching them physical combatives, although when a woman shoots a fire arm, something magical happens, that’s goddesses’ honest truth, there is a beauty in that experience of for the first time and I speak as a survivor, the first time being able to feel like, wow, there is a range of defensiblity of my body temple that doesn’t depend on my physical size, it’s the great equalizer

this program of training, is going to address all of these ranges of attack, classically in martial arts you have close range, mid range, far range different words in different systems, for example if someone’s approaching you, a side kick to the knee is what Bruce Lee would say, the longest weapon to the nearest target, you wouldn’t wait to elbow them, appropriate distance would be throwing out that kick

a billboard is one form of attack, a billboard presents a body image that is an unrealistic ideal that would require plastic surgery, enhancements, or reduction or whatever, hyper representation of physiques, just not representative of average people, that’s a form of an attack

on all genders, all genders are kept in this constant inner battle of whether they’re going to be loved based on how their body looks, and whether they’re going to be successful in world of power and money and wealth based on how symmetrical their facial features are, what their voice sounds like, things that are superficial, its difficult for most people to measure up to those so called standards

to be a warrior against being punched in the gut by the site of somebody you think is more attractive than you, to be set off course and out of balance, its an attack that will leave you open and then susceptible

that feeling can lead to you going to the bar, having a drink because you don’t feel good about yourself, and then you wake up the next day in a hospital because your drink got rufeed, or whatever, stories of compromise they all cascade and get worse, the more abuse anyone experiences, the less power they have to stand up and rebuild that protective auric shield around all these negative influences

worst of all, there’s all these ranges, all these avenues of attack coming at us from the external world, but the real curse is when they get internalized, and they become voices in our own heads, and we start to listen to what we think is our own, multifaceted self

you see someone walking down the street talking to themselves and their crazy, meanwhile whether or not you move your lips or make sounds, if you’re having a dialog with yourself when you look at the mirror, or you do something that makes you feel stupid, that you should be embarrassed about, instantly their comes the voice which not always is the most friendly voice and is sometimes your worse enemy

the world I want to live in is world of rape free zones

conditions that are conducive to rape are studied and analyzed and designed against

I would love to see a feminist revolution that takes all the weapons, power, land education systems, everything back from the patriarchal power structure with a swiftness, an abrupt insurrectionary uprising of women who organize together in sex strikes, and build new nations with new boundaries and reclaim the maternal birthright of really meticulously designing male egos that are in service to the earth and the elder councils of women who they adore and fear as all boys feared the wrath of their mother, doesn’t get much simpler than that

the distorted relationship we have with organized male violence, from street gangs to the mafia, every single cult of violence that men have organized and lead, only exist because mothers have been prohibited from sustaining a nature prehistoric tendency to collectively design how they want male aggressive energy to flow through their designed social ecosystem

its a horrible perversion of force on this earth for their to be male violence of any kind that is not guided by the wisdom of priestesses and elder women who are sustaining traditions of goddess worship that connect every bodies mind body spirit and sexuality to the divine wisdom that is feminine, is compassionate and nurturing

it is possible that every act of sexual conduct that a male engages in in his entire life time could be absolutely a blissful meditation

imagine that boys and young men and young adults and elder men, all lived with the same fear and humility towards all women and the divine feminine, never having been allowed to develop a self serving ego, and being kept in a constant state of bowing and being in prostration to that feminine power, as the superior and highest supreme power that’s what the schools of tantra that we’re drawing from in this warrior tantra program are all about and its my pretty well studied opinion is that every problem we’re facing in the history of the planet is the result of the perversion of that power dynamic

I don’t know a lot of female rapists or child abusers

I don’t know a lot of women who are designing weapons of mass destruction or cutting down trees on a mass scale, these are all symptoms of a power structure that has been hijacked not by the sacred masculine but by the toxic masculine

that if not kept in prostration to the divine feminine, will become a horrific evil menace to all life on earth

its the stories the mythologies, the cursing of women through religions that have feared women in the wrong way, there is a good way to fear women and the divine feminine, fearing that you won’t have the stamina to please them fully, that should be the primary fear

the way to solve that fear is to train your nervous system to be able to hold and embrace ever more powerful waves of divine feminine sexual energy, the kundalini shakti energy

that is the task of men, to be in prostration and in fear of the goddess in a manner that makes them want to put down axe, put down sword, grab your cock, with guidance of elders from long standing traditions, how to become a god, a peaceful loving, compassionate, gentle, caring earth worshiping, goddess worshiping powerful warrior who is capable of conducting defensive violence among many other things, but at the beginning and end of the day you’re there to kiss the feet of the mother goddess in all her forms, we’re a long way from there being positive peer pressure between men to be a better love, a more dutiful lover, a more prostrate lover

there was a time when all the cool people we’re doing it, the in crowd was doing it, goddess worship, prostration to the divine feminine, the glory to be accessed by ritual love making, where the impulse to harm and to rape and abuse was so well buffered so that a woman could trust that while making love to a man she was making love to the divine masculine aspect, that he has ritual invoked and through his practice of goddess worship he is essentially earning the access to be able to be possessed by the divine feminine energy so a woman can feel safe because she’s in the vibration of the goddess that has been invoked ritually by her lover

don’t have to believe any of this spirituality, any of these esoteric principles, we could all be starting from scratch

if every spiritual book instantly disappeared from the planet and we all just had the world we’re living in now, the technology systems, the political systems, erased all the mythology, if we had to start from scratch its a very simple reboot

the men who are careless recklessly unconsciously taking and not giving with their primordial sexual drives, if their in the reptilian brain with the remorselessness of that lower level of animal instinct, there are other animals that are compassionate, that are loving, it’s not just to say that humans are compassionate and all animals are below us

within all of our neuro anatomy, there’s a potential to devolved into an uncompassionate, self serving, sociopathic mode,

we have to acknowledge that in this modern world, it’s gotten worse, this tendency for males to conduct themselves in an uncompassionate way, it’s being rewarded, by media, by male peers, by the law in lot of places still, women as property and rape toy,

some places in the world where it’s safer to not be married because if you’re unmarried and you’re raped you can press charges but if you’re married you’ve joined a rape contract and you’ve signed up for it, so most likely you’ll be prosecuted

the world is extremely warped and the violence that’s being done on every level is all coming back to that fundamental distortion of the relationship to the human mother and the divine mother, circumcision

lack of breast feeding you so the hostility of men against women, nature, and animals, it’s very systematically built into most of the males walking the earth today, those who’ve been circumcised, those who have been deprived of on demand breast feeding, they are the enemies of life on earth, and for a reason, if you were an intelligent demon lord who wanted to come to earth and figure out how to make the most pain and suffering for all of life and really make a game show or a casino out of watching the misery unfold, the debauchery and hellish extreme violence, the raping of infants in places in Africa where there’s a mythology that they are less likely to have HIV/AIDs so they’re preyed upon in horrific cults of infant rape

female genital mutilation, all of these sores, all of the abuse happening on native american reservations, extremely high rate of alcoholism and these clusters of child sexual abuse where public officials come into work in government office job, and complain about how their child bit their penis while they were engaged in routine servicing

it is a very designed hell on earth that we live in and the forces that we’re up against, they don’t, in my experience they don’t respond to treatment with pharmaceutical drugs, with bibles, with exorcists, in my experience, my personal experience and in my studies, what we’re up against, what we’re doing with is such a merciless insidious force from the darkest pits of creation, its should be no surprise that in tantra the supreme goddess deities are the warrior goddesses the one’s who’ve adapted to address the ever evolving strategies of the demonic realm

mythology of kali and durga main warrior goddesses par excellence, there’s a lot of symbology there, a lot to read between the lines

and if none of this spiritual language works for you, watching this, there’s an even simpler frame of reference which is bonobos and chimpanzees, that’s a whole new mythology where if we had to scrap every spiritual text, every wisdom tradition, go observe behavior of chimps and bonobos, very close primate cousins, we happen to have more in common with bonobos than chimps, on dna level

however more exposure and contact and study was done with the chimps so they became the model to justify patriarchal violence and rape

I speak with boldness and confidence about my personal revelations about who and what is running the show of sexual patriarchal violence on earth, and who really owns this casino, who really owns this rape culture, it’s not the best attempt humans have made to figure out how to get along, and to share resources and to love each other and make love to each other, this is not the pinnacle of our consciousness around power and gender and sexuality,we’re living in the mass global entertainment driven patriarchal paradigm, it’s not progressive

you could say there’s more empowered roles for women in cinema, more queer roles, all that is a step in the right direction, towards our primal mode of loving, acceptance, equality, egalitarianism

The Survival Wombyn Project Green Paper TPP173

Survival Wombyn Banner

In this episode I read the “Green Paper” for the Survival Wombyn Eco (role)Modeling Project. I then elaborate on the backstory and road map of the project.

Please visit the website at:
https://survivalwombyn.com/

Here is the white paper:

When I was a boy, I was enchanted by the female form, the majestic whole woman. When my older male friends started to show me adult hardcore magazines I was offended and confused by their crude objectification of the models. They were more interested in the close-up action than the beauty of the emotional expressions. There was no natural and healthy context in those photographs and it hurt my eyes and heart.

Much later in life I discovered through tantra yoga and psychedelic shamanic healing ceremonies that I was abused as a child. No wonder I didn’t vibe with the predator energy of the older boys. I always yearned for medicinal love and intimacy, and the peace and serenity of wild nature.

I built a career as a sustainable edible landscape designer and as my personal healing journey has progressed, I have discovered my spiritual purpose as a wounded healer: to compost the patriarchy and help put five thousand years of male dominance over women, children, animals, and nature to rest.

The Survival Wombyn project is one of my collaborative attempts to restore whole natural beauty to human sensuality. I endeavor to depict models in an innocent, wholesome, playful, yet purposeful manner that transcends the shackles of abusive fetishes and commercialized exploitation.

In addition to re-positioning the home of eros back into nature, I feel compelled to empower women as role-models so they can demonstrate ecological values, knowledge, and skills.

Rather than simply depict women enraptured in the sensuousness of natural settings, my goal is to feature their integration into nature through yoga, gardening, natural building, appropriate and sustainable technology, primitive skills, herbalism, shamanism, witchcraft, self defense training, and more.

Most of my close female friends are diverse, beautiful Eco-Warrior Goddesses who can train mainstream models in these empowering and liberating arts. I believe conscious alt models can and will revolutionize and enlighten the dominant modeling industry paradigm. While much of the status quo industry defaults to a low form of black magic, titillating the vacuous male gaze and exploiting women’s beauty to sell products that harm the environment, we can do better with conscious, intentional, consensual green magic!

When I am reborn, I want it to be in a future world where the intoxicating power of female beauty is intelligently used to keep men in a permanent state of graceful worship and service. Peace, prosperity, equality, and harmony can be restored when men lay down their axes and swords, and live in loving devotion to the divine, earthly, and human feminine essence.

In practical terms, the Survival Wombyn (Role)Modeling Project will be evolve along the following path:

Phase 1: Self-fund the development of the desktop/mobile website application infrastructure to facilitate Ethereum smart contract based crypto-currency tipping for models who submit and license audio/video/still photographs.

Phase 2: With 5% of each cryptocurrency  tip amount held for use to fund ongoing development of the platform, top budget priorities include: staff payment,  an online merchandise store, production equipment purchases, travel expense allocations, print publications, course-ware implementations, and more.

Phase 3: When significant brand recognition is achieved and cashflow is available, various  reality show series concepts will be explored.

Phase 4: When funds allow, further website/mobile app infrastructure will be built out to facilitate more formal cryptocurrency crowdsourced funding for projects proposed by models, to be voted on and prioritized through a blockchain based decentralized autonomous organization voting mechanism.

Phase 5: With abundant financial resources and potential social impact venture capital, the ultimate goal is for on-the-ground ecological educational facilities to be built around the world that would serve as sustainable refugee camps for women and children fleeing from oppression and abuse of all kinds be it financial, familial, governmental, or religious.

To end on a personal note, it will be a dream come true to re-incarnate in the next life through an un-raped, unmolested womb, and to be raised in a rape-free zone established by the very Survival Wombyn models that my efforts directly empowered.

In Devotion to the Divine Feminine, in partnership with the Divine Masculine;

Sincerely,
-Ben Lawson (Co-Founder)

Tantra Punk your guide to sexual Liberation healing and empowerment as a certified Tantra counselor and certified permaculture designer I’m here to help you grow spiritually sexually and ecologically my online and in-person counseling sessions and training programs are price to fit any budget I’m looking forward to helping you design and ever more Divine Life Path please send me an email to Ben at Tantra Punk. Com and our journey together will begin hello dear beloved’s welcome to Township Punk podcast episode number 173 I’m going to do a solo episode to introduce the soft launch of my new project which I’ve been actually working on for a couple years now and it’s finally really coming to fruition in what you would call a in a beta testing mode where it is live and accessible online however I’m not doing major promotion until there are some rounds of bug fixes and Bug bounties and even hopefully some penetration testing which is kind of next level security measures to be sure that there is few of vulnerable points of attack is possible which is an ongoing struggle and going to get into it first off read the what I’m calling the green paper which is the spin off of what’s happening in the ramp it cryptocurrency space and blockchain startup space which is that every project has the sort of it’s almost a caricature often of a real scientific industry type of white paper or something to it to look up but it’s interesting the original Bitcoin whitepaper is that sort of from synopsis of the technical the problem that that the that the Endeavour 6 to solve like outline that problem outlining that problem and then elaborating on the solution that you’re proposing based on your research and development and it’s sort of usually not necessarily pandering to investors but certainly hoping to get people on board and people to study it and an in a peer-reviewed context which is not the level I’m at Bentley academic world you know if your industry Academia and you’re putting out white papers there’s usually a high standard of screwed in the end so anyway if I’m attempting to tongue and cheek make a spin-off of that Meme of making a really mostly half-assed white papers and Industry and just put in a little bit of my ecological Consciousness here and I call it a green paper because I’m trying to be green with what I’m doing here so I will go ahead and read that to give the background and then give some updates on really what’s happening with the website and the project so here goes when I was a boy I was enchanted by the female form the Majestic whole woman when my older male friend started to show me adult hardcore magazines I was offended in refuse by their crude objectification of the models they were more interested in the close-up action than a beauty of

dream come true to reincarnate in the next life through a nun raped and molested womb and to be raised in a rape free zone established by the very survival women models that my efforts directly empowered and Devotion to the divine feminine in partnership with a Divine masculine sincerely been lost in co-founder okay so if you haven’t read a lot of white papers in the cryptocurrency blockchain space some of this might be a little bit futuristik and jargonistic but I’ll break down probably the most the most technical aspect of understanding is so to recap in some layman’s terms let’s say the goal is that because there is this new paradigm of crowd Source funding with very little regulation very little obstruction by Banks and governments the ability for a capital liquid digital Capital to flow instantaneously throughout the world to anyone anywhere who has not even an internet connection necessarily but a way to access the blockchain a way to set up a cryptocurrency digital wallet so I can receive funds that that opens up a whole new a whole new paradigm of possibilities for supporting causes and issues and people that you care about and there’s also a model that I was exposed to a while back or not too hot not too long ago was Jesus idea of community supported activist where individuals who is working under a non-profit umbrella can establish themselves as a one-person Army that people can have tax-deductible donations to fun I’m not going to go the route of the nonprofit set up I’ve done that in the past and I do not like the level of control oversight and potential manipulation that that you’re you’re in that situation with with government institutions so I’m I’m banking on and I’m witnessing the the beauty of people who are so already abundant with cryptocurrency reserves from early investments in Technologies like aetherium and Bitcoin excetera at this new class this new 1% of crypto Millionaires and billionaires in hundred thousand years in 10,000 they’re very generous in most cases with how they spread this wealth around most mostly because they’re deep interest in seeing the the the technology flourish and further to be Mass adoption so there’s an incentive there’s a number of very aligned very I would say wholesome incentives to share the wealth in a way that is a very very novel and so now if you the people that have a concentration of wealth in these forms of cryptocurrencies with the stuff that some of them are doing to make the world a better place whether it’s through charitable donations on the books of nonprofits or just straight across the web. Appear empowering people to do what they do with no paperwork and no it’s just Anarchy crypto Anarchy at its finest and total consenting adult Financial interaction what’s so interesting about what’s happening now in the regulatory climate is that simultaneously the The Regulators are there’s enough pressure there’s enough wealth and pressure and in soon to be lobbying power in the capitals of the nation to really get the technology to be protected and facilitated by local state and National levels of government and the to be expected clamping down on some of the Shady practices within the industry and within the technology movement that’s the way that I am designing this and the way that I’m studying the sort of trajectory of this technology is going to be to to be in the right side of the law and to be in good standing with regulators and luckily and I’m going going with the the platform that has really broken through the most vulnerable stage of being regulated and it’s gotten itself so established in so many places that it’s really here to stay and that’s I do feel of all the cryptos that I have been studying in investing in I feel that my heart is most aligned with this the spirit of aetherium that the way that it came about and what the Brain Trust is in it so that could change in the future but for now I’m very confident and very foolish as they say in the trading World about this technology but bring it back down to the greater Mission the technical aspects of facilitating the flow of capital and is tipping economy that’s actually not not really that advanced I’m using this technology in a very simple manner I hired some developers to help me create a smart smart contract template that would allow a tip percentage to be it’s of it from every every tip that goes through to a model on the website to help them find their life goals and their life mission that they share in their introduction videos and if they have in their bio and that they’re presenting and there’s they’re they’re doing essentially an ongoing Kickstarter ongoing crowd-source funding campaign and then there will be eventually the back-end infrastructure on the website so that a model starts out just receiving random General tips from whoever thinks they’re cool and likes what they’re doing and then as money starts to flow as the ER the crypto starts to flow through the system and the treasury is built up the 5% that is being withheld then there will be more development to happen that will facilitate building out of a incremental Milestone based sort of drip irrigation system of capital to the women who are doing Jake’s on the ground and who can verify that they got through one phase so one round of funding that was issued to them if that if that goal is met and there is evidence to prove that it was you know that the money was accounted for that the crypto is accounted for and put into the project then that would unlock for them to potential to make a request from the treasury to do more projects in this was essentially this is a synthesis of learning about for me what the history of aetherium smart contracts decentralized autonomous organization and things like multi signature contracts there’s all of this technology now exists to facilitate stuff that I was dreaming about way back in 2020 or 2009 in 2009 I was anticipating a movement of accelerated survivalism and preparedness around 2012 and that sort of waveform of a meme a meme wave of people just like Y2K which I I did live through and Bone up on my survival thinking a bit for that not as much as for 2012 but because I had lived through that and I remembered it and I’ve started it since there really is like a an important opportunity to mobilize around these pseudo Apocalyptica prophecies and events and whatnot so the way back in 2009 I was I was working with Drupal which was the predecessor really too well it’s a Content management system somewhat like WordPress but far more extensible and far more elaborate and it’s not as user-friendly it’s kind of I believe it was well it was very I mean it’s it’s countless websites are running it in our government institutions businesses schools bloggers and I hate it if it still takes a lot of different functionality but I had been really a power user as a web admin of Drupal and I knew even back then that with the Web 2.0 technology it would be very easy to facilitate a sort of a fund a foundation of fun where you could make you could disperse allocations of of that fund to people who or projects throughout the world who would write a proposal just like Kickstarter or Indiegogo but then have the community the community of members and users of the platform actually vote on how much do the big basically a budget can be your entire social network platform can become very easily a way to involve all of the the members of the community to to vote on these kind of phone initiatives and therefore to decentralize at least the the the the decision-making power of an organization across of wide spectrum of people a diverse range of people back then I was still in the parent in the centralized server Paradigm of okay I will run my website I will I will have the platform and I will be managing it I will be this the single point of failure but at that time before aetherium before Bitcoin before peer-to-peer decentralized technologies that are are taking off now with blockchain and the sword of truth machine immutability as a service Paradigm that Andreas Antonopoulos talks about at length I’d only just imagine that yeah I could run a website and members people could join the website and the the capital that is generated by whatever means donations of the time I was running a nonprofit so it could have been just charitable donations to this Foundation fund and Grant fund and then it would be a beautiful website where you see people doing what I was interested in this like really accelerating permaculture homesteading in anticipation of a potential catastrophic shift around 2012 which I think we met I think we’re in the did the frog in boiling water right now and I think the state of the world now several years later is actually in some ways some ways not as bad in some ways worse but certainly undeniably we are in a time of catastrophic shift and the day the days of business as usual and world as we know it or are certainly are certainly dwindling and I don’t necessarily believe it’s going to be all out into the world apocalypse Mad Max overnight but the really the ecological refugees that’s probably the biggest single factor I don’t want to digress too much but I will say that I’m though I’m no more confident about the infrastructure of modern industrial civilization 2 to save us or to prevent the catastrophe of nuclear meltdown and ocean poisoning and the melting of every this all of these indicators they’re not they’re not getting much better and the the pressure that is on me as a prepper and survivalist by training from the fire department from years of being a devotee of the survival Podcast and years of being in the permaculture industry in LA and taking the stuff off seriously and I I don’t do everything that I would like to do but I certainly do a lot and I certainly would love to see a culture of preparedness that is sensible and reasonable and not dependent on catastrophic prophecies to get in gear so I would love to see Capital flowing to people around the world collectives of people egalitarians collectives of people who are operating according to principles of motto of what I would call you a logical anarchism where we’re moving towards a more Paleolithic model of eventually being in a bunch of nature that we repair roof repairing ecosystems to a level that we can actually once again in smaller groups forage within them Andre wild so you can call Annika primitivism you can call it green anarchism you could call it luddism you can call it deep ecology Primal Anarchy I think they probably the safest word to use is rewilding which can be done anytime anywhere and it’s a state of mind and it doesn’t require a mass die-off and has no malthusian misanthrope misanthropic agenda that people confuse with primitivist and it’s really simply putting down to earth putting all this into simple Focus we I would love to see for a small bio Regional communities working on permaculture homesteading Eco Village Building & Design and ultimately rewilding and there’s enough wealth and capital amongst the super rich and now the crypto super-rich to wear some of these fantasies and dreams that I had of empowering people through technology through the web through creating profiles are people can write proposals and stay here chart my progress on my project I want to build a composting system I want to do a gray water system a rainwater system look at how many people were feeding in our village look at how many people were feeding on her urban city block and just continually focus on dancing people who are moving in that in that in those directions with those principles of anti-authoritarianism and ecological integrity and really stepping away from the hyper technological world but using aspects of it and elements of it to bootstrap Amore classical Paradigm so one thing I am extremely hopeful about in this uncertain time is the power of cryptocurrency and blockchain to actually really effectively facilitate a massive transfer of wealth and power so resuming into this green paper in these phases to flesh this out a little bit the the ultimate goal here would for there to be literally ultimately a platform that is totally decentralized where I am not a single point of failure I’m not just facilitating the website and I’m not a money transmitter business because I’m not holding on to you are being responsible for the fruit actually managing a treasury with all the liability and all of the risk associated with being running an organization the possibility for Insider theft for embezzlement for fraud in fact the umbrella organization that my first nonprofit the guy in MIND Institute was operating under was completely implode in under a massive massive Scandal where they had I don’t know how many how many projects operating under them and they embezzled all of that project money and so it was the most I could not I mean that was when I was done with the nonprofit sector when that happen obviously luckily we only lost a couple hundred bucks but there were a number of projects that were operating under this umbrella a nonprofit that went went afoul and took everybody’s money and leave there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of it was not a secret it was you know very well covered in the media and they had to go after the guy so it’s like that honey pot of centralization where it’s just it’s too tempting and it puts people I’m not tempted by that I say that now but literally this is the idea this is the beauty of cryptocurrency is that you can program monetary system so that UD risk yourself and you take yourself literally out of the equation and you take Banks and third-party services that don’t need to mention but that are also points of failure everybody is getting hacked the the nobody is safe from hacking the hackers have way more time on their hands and in some cases with their nation state actors with a call advanced persistent threats they are being paid very high wages to work full time to do nothing but attack us while we sleep at our weakest points and we have no clue as Ended as in users and consumers we are totally clueless for the most part putting all of our trust and faith in third parties and fourth parties and V parties and on top of the line and so without a disk corner without giving a discourse on public key cryptography and how that works at in the financial technology world now with with the Good Sense Bitcoin was developed you know the simple way to look at this is that I can now complete my vision that began 10 years ago and it over 10 years ago in anticipation of 2012 are about 10 years ago and to eventually move this platform into a space of decentralization where nobody no one has no single individual human point of failure has the ability to steal money to transfer the funds to allocate the funds that everything is governed by a selective mechanism that is code is Law and that math algorithms that we had no one trust based on the battle testing that Bitcoin has done in the battle testing of aetherium is doing and we can be reasonably reasonably certain that with a very very astute coating and he’s smart contracts we can set up systems that cannot be in fruit and for all intents and purposes they can’t be compromised by a single point of failure it would take more money effort energy resources excetera to try to extract the money from a well-designed smart contracts system then it would be to just play by the rules so that’s the game theory that is part of the game 3 but to ya tu tu I’m really thrilled about this and to continue with kind of flushing this out what I’m we’re at where this is at now which is where a lot of project start is it is a point of single for a single point of failure I am running a a centralized website on a third-party shared server I am at the the highest concentrated point of risk right now as far as being a single point of failure so is the goal is to have as money flows through the system in a treasury is built up then I can begin really hardening the platform until a transitions to that really sweet spot of being virtually unhackable and existing completely in the decentralized third webs in the new web 3.0 space where in order for funds to be moved if I may never I’m a completely walk away from it and it may be a multi signature contract we’re in order for funds in the treasury to be allocated to a project that there has to be multiple multiple parties who synchronize on signing the signing the transactions so that with one person is kidnapped if one person disappears if one person goes Rogue they cannot single-handedly be compelled to or from their own volition harm the project or take the money and if this is funny cuz I have not thought about this actually at all I was in an hour living in the age of Grand Theft crypto and what I hadn’t thought about until just now that when I was running the guy MIND Institute and we were working with we were starting to work with really serious heavy hardcore investors and money we were getting grants we were started when we were small potatoes were a little Art Gallery in Long Beach doing gardening with at-risk youth and you know we got just just so much magic and fun and good times and love from the community and hanging out with troubled youth parents and having them for the first time see their kids doing something constructive it was a real magical really amazing time and I got to see you know how the inner workings of the non-profit world work and some of the the Shady or dark side of it to and how some of the some of the people involved in the different organizations it can really be easy for people Shady people to to Really abuse the nonprofit system it’s it’s it has that’s why it has a lot of oversight but you know anyway that’s the point is it’s remembering now how I umbrella organization that that we had our project operating as a non-profit under so that we could receive charitable donations and gives and we could go and we could pick up resources like on we could post on Craigslist and say hey we’re a nonprofit if you want to write off this is what we need we had wish list people would come by and just randomly drop off all kinds of cool stuff to our location and if this technology existed back then if blockchain-based cancel technology that would Monitor and in control and limit access to who was able to sign for payments sign checks you know those those all of that embezzlement that happened that that destroyed my in a way it did destroy my project at but it mostly destroyed a lot of other projects that really had a lot of more money that was taken and it just crippled them so that all of that can be solved and prevented by this new blockchain technology so this is kind of going off now about how thrilled I am that now the technology has evolved to a point where my original vision is even more bulletproof more scalable more fundable than ever and the financiers and the backers now they exist and it’s no longer pandering to to government to the government or pandering to environmental established foundations and funds this is really about proposing to the crypto Rich the crypto Millionaires and billionaires who are most lot of the mostly crypto anarchists and Libertarians and say hey look this is the beautiful project that these people are doing is humble project let’s hook them up and and where I’m at now with the survival women project is also a synthesis of my study of the spankchain technology crypto economic platform for starting with webcamming but Altima it’s going to be a white label meaning their technology will be licensable to other brands and platforms that want to use their back end crypto economic resources and tools to be able to facilitate micropayments and streaming money so right now it’s it’s it a website that I current adult performer on and I do Tantra training and I do music and singing and dancing and all kinds of sexy stuff on there and that was like the first use case for them to get the project off the ground but what it’s all about what they’re in point are there in game is to be able to facilitate transmitting that technology that the backend platform to other people so say you wanted to do Bassmasters 2.0 and have a all fishing video streaming platform for people to get tips and cryptocurrency for their fishing fishing Expeditions well you may not want to do that jane.com because you be in association with the naughtiness that you may not may not drive with your your clientele but if spankchain is able to provide the tools to replicate there an EMT license basically they’re back in or an iteration of it then you could have your own version of that so ultimately this platform NY mentioned in the FaZe is going into a reality series concept it’s like might one of my favorite TV Productions was the colony series from I believe it is Discovery Channel on this was back in I think about 2010 they have the social experiment where they put groups is a group of people in in a sort of post apocalyptic scenario where they had to figure out how to survive and get along and work things out together and and I just love that and I will I will I live that that’s me it’s like how I have designed my life to be trans apocalyptic and I would love to continue that kind of that good biscuit build on that and so this platform survival women we love actually be a place where cryptocurrency economics are flowing and people who are basically watching the live streams of communities really going back to Nature going back to the land and working out and solving their problems and no hype no no fancy editing of putting together bogus storylines for reality TV shows no staging you know that I deal with B that this is real people and it’s an you know like webcamming were used to people streaming video games and streaming themselves masturbating in fucking with other people all that which is wonderful and beautiful and I’m all on all that with Spanx and everything but I would love to see and what this will ultimately be is a platform where you see people doing permaculture doing healing doing Shamanism building communities and going back to the land and broadcasting it and having people be able to tip in real time with streaming money with Revenue goals being that and just really create that beautiful liquidy and flow of capital to to support people who want to we’re doing this and of course I am doing something somewhat similar to what spanking is doing in the sense that the the low-hanging fruit or the first use case in it you know for Spanish and was like haha let’s use butts butts butts test out really Advanced Next Level Cutting Edge Let’s just call it streaming micropayments technology on aetherium and you and apply it to the industry that needs it the most the adult industry the webcam performers to work or getting gouged with up to 50% of their revenue being taken by the platform itself so spankchain is a 5% cut platform hence my feeling that okay if they’re going to set the standard for this new paradigm of a more empowered middle if you’re going to be if you are going to be an innocent in any sense of middleman in this in this ecosystem that you can really operate on on Lower margins because of the scalability so you know I thought that was great and I said all right I’m going to do 5% and so as they started with adult coming and eventually evolved into a white label system where anybody can build their own streaming money tipping kind of platform and chatting platform streaming web webcam platform might what I’d like to die when I’m starting with this idea of okay okay look here here’s a bunch of sexy babes all right yeah we do know we all were stupid it’s all hits all encoded in all of our ancient carvings and it’s it’s we know we worship the feminine form in all of its beauty and all of its phases of life and we’re a little bit hung up now on the Distortion of the youthful body as being all that is lovable and sexy bowl and all that and beautiful and I see beyond that and I am going to be very happy to leverage the sexual capital of existing models and pornstars in women who a huge following is a people adjuster like addicted to jerking off to the you know the shape of their bodies and the shape of their face and what not but what that can be a what would that can lead to an open the door to is people exploring the the beauty of eldership and the beauty of motherhood and the beauty of stretch marks in the beauty of gray hair and the Crone and all that so two women who I ultimately truly want to support the most with this platform are the Elder witches who have stories to tell and Magic to share and who needs support and who need to be given a sort of Social Security package from the radical ecological movement and so there will be you know a front loading of this platform with a lot of sexy babes to to get eyeballs on the site and to get to the capital flowing and eventually it will real rebalance more in the direction of real people real bodies MSA real bodies I want to say diverse bodies and diverse legal ages and all of that good stuff so that my green karma is is is nice nice and healthy and pure and that’s the goal is still to get there in 2 to apply myself really starting to step away from the the Trap of the black hole of narcissism which is slowly trying to build the Tantra pump brand if I can pull a bit of a Satoshi Nakamoto and and work myself out of a job and in create a platform in a technology that lives on by itself but I have no liability towards after that I have no leadership in after a certain point that is the the the the ultimate dream for me and I’ll say please go to the website please do look at what the models are doing there I’m choosing women who I ate a lot of them I personally know and love some of them are former lovers and and it’s beautiful to think that I could possibly have even all of my exes so-called I like to say former lovers but I really feel like wouldn’t it be so cool if the women who have loved me and tried love me and filled it letting me and his wife fell to love in the did the Trail of Tears it is all my fractured and broken past relationships and all them honestly I’d say the on the on the unbalanced the majority of my relationships have either not technically not ended or have ended reasonably well and if the love is still very strong and that even some of the sexual chemistry is still there but I think this is a way to distribute my love and to decentralize my love I do not want to be married to one person I do not want one person to absorb all of my financial means all of my emotional bandwidth I want to distribute myself intelligently and ethically across all of the women who I love and support them as single mothers in in those circumstances and just allow myself to be a conduit a connection of Bridge to Greater Capital to the first and foremost the women who I love and respect the most and even some of the ones maybe that I don’t you know there are women who from my past to wife beer could haunt me there’s women who stalked me there’s women I’ve had to get restraining orders against and I’m some part of me wonders will they ever you know catch up to me and my peak of success and want to ruin my life will maybe I could just throw them up here on this platform be like here look you’re taking care of don’t worry about it you know you played they all played an important role in my life if it wasn’t to learn how to love it was to learn how not to love excetera excetera so I’m thrilled about this interesting Dynamic and really it also is based on my study of the 64 yoginis which is a very fascinating chapter in the history of Contra or the history of Tantra it is considerably the root of what is called well it is one of the very interesting parts of the family tree of Tantra Zandt on tourism in India and it is one of the witchiest trippiest freakiest feminist eco-feminist Pagan anti patriarchal forms of of Tantra and it’s worth studying and in really this this idea of this chakra of 64 yoginis and the way that they construct their intelligent use of the Shiva energy the energy of the masculine for their rituals like I have learned that the Sweet Spot of being a man is to is to gracefully fall into the hands of ethical green witches were practicing Tantra sex magick and to be a conduit of energy through those rituals and this is a digital version of a male tantric goddess worship were saying I want to be in Devotion to all of these beautiful yoginis throughout the world and they can approach me they can love me or care about me or befriend me however they see fit there will not be a scandalous Weinstein type of creepiness coming me and this project it is a sexualized platform and to an extent if I’m taking pictures of sexy women and ask them to be sexy then there is a an important ethical train to be to be Traverse there and all that is to say that I have to have impeccable ethics about how I run this and I have to be while walking I would love to be the ecological Hugh Hefner Hugh Hefner I don’t believe Hugh Hefner was me too. I believe that there is a way to have your cake and eat it to be a successful entrepreneur in the adult and and and and Beauty marketing space and be revolutionary and be radical and not be a scumfuck and actually take care of people and help people and help women build families and build careers and build their education and and do this right so I go wish me luck and that if you are a crypto Enthusiast and you are Savvy at all with this technology please do go to the website please help me with the penetration testing and the bug bounties I will be able to pay at this point small amounts of people that find anything from typos to flaws in the the crypto economic aspect of things which are very simple now but they will get very complex and I want to shout out and also to give this. IO because they’re huge inspiration to me about how to structure this some decentralized aetherium based crowd Source funding platform and they’re doing that multi signature dispensing of funds thing they do they’re super Advanced like the area where I want to be there already way in the future and between the white labeling of spring change technology and hopefully the white labeling of the giveth. Ayo Technology all of these dreams I’ve had will come true and most importantly for me I really want to be Reba turn to a nun raped and molested womb and to live in a rape free zone where women are militant and guarded by attack dogs and have giant facilities compounds Island castles and where there is a perimeter that is defended in where we know that there is a from a tantric demon logical and shamanic perspective the Earth is under attack by demons that possess mostly men to rape and molest women and children and it is a rampant crisis and it was predicted and it’s in the scriptures so we’re deep in the Kali Yuga we’re deep into an area of extreme test pressure from the shadow Realms of reality and we need to be on guard and it’s Noah for me it’s not okay to say oh yeah your initiation into sexuality is probably going to be really rapey and really traumatic and disturbing and that’s just a rite of passage and get used to how the world works and people are treating sexual molestation and rape and even just botched botched consensual sexual initiation in virginity deflowering as just whatever you know in this in the more technology exists and we’re distracted people are and I’m not whatever about this because of what I was put through and I’m going to make this and you know this is my hopeful contribution to creating a safer world that if I Come Back Inn to it which I am pretty pretty certain I will I won’t have completely ascended to another level of being after this life I think I’ll probably come back to pick up where I left off and I want that to be way further along than where it is now and you know the consciousness of my family the consciousness of my mother goddess bless her heart we need to we can no longer say we didn’t know better about what’s happening on Earth with demonic infestation and sexual abuse and rape and what the time trees have to teach us about that and how we need to be writing new Tantra is about how to you know use the technology available to us now the ancient tantric technology was about sound breath movement and it all builds off of those those platforms and the sacred geometrical forms that you use to barricade and protect yourself in and out internally externally personally familiarly culturally socially everything I did the the the perimeter defense that Tantra used wisely and on the stork so-called light side or good side of the force it is a technology and so all of this new digital cyber crypto technology to me it can be used in harmony is in the internet extension of the spirit of the Tantra is certainly the shocked at Huntress where were talking about training the access to for individuals to enter collectively discover the truth of the living Consciousness and being and power of the goddess of the ambient Shakti which is the divine feminine energy that animates life if you follow this tradition and you’ve had these experiences and the the intelligent medicinal medical application of Kundalini activation to douche out the chakras and to liberate human souls and astral bodies from demonic pest that’s what I’m all about and this is a way for me to put some of that extreme tantric rhetoric under the hood of a vehicle that will move us in a direction of a safer World whether you believe in Kali whether you believe in Shiva whether you believe in Kundalini do you believe in Shakti whether you do yoga whether you retain your semen all of those Tantra Punk memes that I was trying so hard for soap for a mini years now about five years to really make that be what I’m known for and what am leaving with like I I could really just immerse myself fully into this project and let that all the guts of all of that thinking and all that rhetoric and all of that spiritual philosophy really just be kind of in the background cuz what it really comes down to is women mothers being trained to violently defend their worm space from the influence of toxic masculinity from the influence of rape and for there just to be a tighter parameter and then eventually hopefully we will win win back the Earth the garden planet and so yes please contact me if you have any questions please do check out the website survival women.com w o w o m b y n and check out the models more being added on almost on a weekly basis it’s getting I’m paying them handsomely to license our content and I’ve got them kind of lined up and so will be continuing to add to this and some of the top women in crypto are fans of this some of them are becoming models on the platform so there is going to be this beautiful bridge between the super Bush hippie chick I don’t like the word chick but there’s crypto chicks and there’s Bush hippie women and the spectrum of technophobia and technophilia are going to be you know united through this platform and I just I’m just looking forward to it but in this role and and see what happens and it certainly gives me a new lease on life and it is not at all hinged upon whether or not I am personally successful as a rock star as a movie star is it podcast sorry or any other form of centralized Eagle building narcissism that I know very very hostile and and resentful to at times about how I can fall into my own traps and be drinking my own Kool-Aid so I feel like this is a good a good direction to go to defuse my passion and to support this beautiful growth and you know if I get my commission of a little bit of sweetness a little bit of love and TLC as I go along and sit here in the cockpit and do all this programming and all this security stuff and all that that would be great and then I will feel feel blessed and hopefully you will enjoy the ride as well and this will be something that can yeah brighten everyone’s everyone’s life in the future so with all that said thank you so much and Namaste.

Com and our journey together will begin hello dear beloved welcome to Township Punk podcast episode number 98 this is a blast from the past a recording I did with a dear friend of mine from the anarcho punk movement this was back in 2011 and 2012 was so big on my mind and it was a catalyst for a lot of Rapid transformation and I think we’re just beginning to see some of the changes that people were preparing for it that time so it’s kind of a time capsule looking at where I was coming from and it was a beautiful opportunity for me to catch up with an old friend with deeper roots in the movement of a knuckle Punk and Eco activism and psychedelic Shamanism and anarcho-primitivism green Anarchy and much more so I think it’s a great primer on the movements that I really feel like I’ve been most affected by and in the most aligned with and yeah I hope you enjoy it thank you so much no mistake I’m here today with a very dear and old friend and comrade at laughing coyote and the I will ask you introduce yourself tell us a little bit about how you personally evolved into a punk rock culture and anti-thyroid tarianism and where and when and how the environmental and ecological movement in Consciousness started to emerge with that path yeah I guess you were asking me earlier about how I got involved in the anarcho punk subculture and how I begin when in my life I begin identifying as an anti fart Aryan and I would say for me I mean it goes back to my first conscious memories Witcher you know maybe kindergarten around that. Of my life from a very early age before I even possess the vocabulary to articulate my views on external Authority and the attempts of those around me particularly adults to control me I had an instinctive aversion to being controlled and I definitely was with a we’re on a intuitive level that there was an indoctrination and socialization process going on around me one of my earliest memories is being forced to say the Pledge of Allegiance in kindergarten being introduced to that brainwashing ritual for the first time and realizing you know seeing seen the psychological mechanics at work and I went to to be grasping that immediately I I knew that by forcing us to repeat this his oath day after day that there was a process of brainwashing occurring I just didn’t have the vocabulary possess the vocabulary at the time to to explain that to anyone else but I was aware of what was happening and I was mentally guarded against it once I learned to read and write the once I crack the code of language I was probably 7 or 8 at that point I realized at that point that I the public school system of you know that was holding me prisoner at the time was standing in the way of my education and that once I had gained the gift of literacy I I I was quite prepared to just take it from there and strike out of my own I realized I didn’t really have a I have a need for this standardized State curriculum and I resented you know this state finance housing facility that I was confined in 5 days a week so I I definitely was looking for ways to rebell and to escape but at a young age it was hard for me to articulate what I saw going on around me and I didn’t feel like I had a lot of allies and I didn’t really understand the on the limits are the extent of my own personal strength and ability to alter my situation so yeah I begin exhibiting rebellious antisocial anti-authoritarian Tendencies at a young age tried my best to get thrown out of school I am putting on my my real political Awakening I was kind of a Rebel Without a Cause you know up until about age 10 or 11 and one of the ways in which I rebelled against the end of it the Stipe stifling conformis environment that I was being Riordan was through drug use and by the time I was ten I was already smoking marijuana but in a way that actually led to my political radicalization because I grew up outside the New York City area and couple times a year New York City radicals would hold events in Central Park that they called Smoke in where thousands of people would show up in a five to ten thousand people and they would open we light up in smoke marijuana in defiance of the authorities in defiance of the police and nobody got arrested because in that case there there were just too many of us so I’ve been hearing about the smoke ends when I was about 12 and that started drawing me into Manhattan more regularly and it was that one of these smokins that I encountered my first and largest newspaper was called overthrow and it was put out by some former hippies who still maintained an office On Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village former Associates Abbie Hoffman who unlike Jerry Rubin and some of the other sell out to their generation they they stayed true to the game and a they were definitely anarchists leaning and their paper overthrow was certainly an artist and I started getting their offices On Bleecker Street and that was kind of my introduction to anarchism actually before I even discovered Punk so that prepared me mentally for my waiter Discovery upon which came when I was about 14 15 I mean I’ve been exposed to the anarchist Punk didn’t come it’s wet come my way until life’s about 14 or 15 when I start getting supposed to crass and all that various fans that are part of the crass family musical tree so did you start he started collecting records and going to shows and Koenig that typical process of of starting to hang out and and and kind of clicks of like-minded punk friends and video did you go a lot of punch go through a the politicization process that starts out with a very that service Street Punk you know fuck the world kind of kind of politically vacuous rebellious approach and then overtime get exposed to stuff that’s more heartfelt and compassionate and thoughtful but you had already been seated with anarchists in Revolutionary and you know social justice Liberation type Consciousness and then some music that Express that is well through anarcho-punk where did you go from there in terms of the scenes you get kind of plugged in into that world into that infrastructure and kind or are we kind of peripheral to it and you’re just always a fan and where did your life kind of go from that did it have did did the discovery of article Punk take me Lily guide to Direction your life or was it kind of background to other things or how did you how did you integrate it in were you directed by at that point wake me up in a small working class town in New Jersey about 20 minutes south of Manhattan and yet still quasi-war rural so we had a river that ran through our town called the musconetcong and I had access to forests you know within 20 minutes of where I lived in the opposite direction to Manhattan so there wasn’t any Punk scene to speak of where I was growing up I was definitely in the minority as far as my musical tastes went and the most rebellious elements amongst my peer group were metalheads and that’s pretty much why hang out hung out with they could be they could definitely be counted on to engage in a Mindless acts of vandalism and I could count on them in a lot of ways I mean they were we’re always enthusiastic about coming out spray painting tagging we pacing but that was what I was left to work with and my exposure to the punk scene involve going into Manhattan and that’s definitely where I began where I would have to go to acquire the music I was developing strong passionate interest in I was always you know I never went through like an anti nowhere we kind of phase was never a gbh type spikes in leather punk I mean I always gravitated towards the more intelligent punk bands and I was fortunate that that sweat started coming into my life anyway and what I was initially drawn to I’m with a lot of those fans with in particular the British anarcho-punk movement was I think a lot of people who don’t have any R4 Punk don’t have any work for the music and therefore of never investigated the The Counter Culture itself because of the aversion that they have to the music I think what they fail to realize is that there was a spiritual dimension to the scene especially in the early to mid 80s and I think there was a spiritual vision that was being expressed you know through the anarchist Punk movement through those those bands what they were what they were channeling and what they were expressing it had a profound impact on my life and my world view and for 15 years or more I didn’t listen to I virtually didn’t listen to any other type of music is there was nothing I encounter that was was more powerful our had a more powerful effect on me that resonated is deeply with me in the core core of my being political radicalization came through a lot of those pants Christ even even early Chumbawamba. certainly all the cracks in Mortar hate bands and bands like antisec in particular I mean that was my my exposure to animal rights animal Liberation the critique of species is on veganism which is something I embrace that a young age end incorporated into my wife for 17 years so you got those that scene had a profound effect on me but I was always because I didn’t have a larger seen that I could conveniently connect with I was always on the periphery of it and remain somewhat a lunar connected but still doing my own thing and then and it was good that I was able to maintain my distance like that because from that vantage point I was also able to observe the Conformity that was present even in the punk counterculture and a lot of the role-playing and a you know just the conformist attention to wearing the right costume and I never got sucked into that aspect of things and was actually able to maintain a detached critique of it so when in the you were getting exposed to the anarcho punk bands to an array of different social environmental and socio-economic issues and causes and movements what led you to an emphasis on environmental the environmental movement several things that were carrying that were several influences at work in my life simultaneously and definitely bands like avoid some of the early releases were instilling a strong environmental awareness and me and from there I wanted to learn more and so I began seeking out Publications like the Earth First journal on I think the single most profound influence on me during that period of my life though when I was wanting to understand my relationship with the Earth better and when I was developing a critique of urban culture was discovering the anarcho primitivism journal Fifth Estate which was coming out of Detroit during that. Of time actually from the early seventies to the early 90s that came out of the Troy and I got exposed to in about 1986 and a critique of civilization that was being formulated in fit the state during that. Of time just really blew my mind and really resonated with me and that’s when I started getting exposed to an Arco permabase writers like John’s there is an Fredy Perlman and during that. Of time every issue fit the state was crammed with investigative and bibliographical weeds tons of interesting authors and anthropologists were being cited regularly and fit the state so that gave me a lot of investigative leads to work with and I began seeking out a lot of these books and kind of immersing myself in that body of literature which I refer to as the anti-civilization critique starting with Lewis Mumford who was I’m addressing some of these issues in the 1920s and on up to the the wave of anarcho-primitivism explicitly anarchists critics of civilization that started making themselves known in the early seventies see you had established the conceptual framework to reorient yourself towards a more intimate connection with the Earth send to evaluate things like where food and water comes from in an urban culture and where we tradition or how and where we traditionally in in more Primal states of being were in balancing in Whitmore and bouncing different ways and then obviously through the Earth First Journal you’re getting exposed to the current events and issues in campaigns and whatnot did you joining the environmental movement did you was there a lot going on a lot of community that you found on the East Coast or was it coming to the West Coast where you found more of the I guess maybe we should get into just a relationship with hippie culture in a relationship with the environmental movement in the underground is just part of the the Riff Raff the overall Riff Raff you know in end of the circuits of different events like the rainbow gathering his stuff how that experience the social experience of of things in addition to the you know that the book experience in the literature experience kind of help formulate that that well before I moved to Oregon when I was 16 my understanding of what an old growth forest was was purely conceptual I was reading about it I was reading about in the Earth First Journal about the early tree sets early incidence of tree spiking but all of his stuff was occurring in the Western United States which was which is something you know I could vaguely imagine in my mind but I had no direct experience with it I’d never gone any further than a any further west than Ohio so when I move to Oregon that’s when a lot of things begin falling into place for me in my life you know intellectually and spiritually a lot of connections were instantaneously made I spent my first month in Oregon doing nothing but hiking around the Columbia River Gorge experiencing old-growth for the first time waterfalls a web of wildness that I didn’t think even existed on planet Earth anymore excited I never had anything to compare it to Savannah and the importance of the work that are the first was doing became even more apparent to me and it became much clearer what was at stake and why people were putting their lives on the line so I began exploring some of the areas that I was reading about in the Earth First Journal areas that were on the chopping block to be to be cut to be converted into clear-cut some areas that if our service and the Bureau of Land Management had designs on the earth first Journal was at least trying to draw attention to these areas and I happen to move to one of the hot spots the Pacific Northwest so this was occurring all around me so that that really helped me understand on a primal visceral level what was at stake and it stopped being like a purely intellectual fair to me at the point and just as a as a biological being I started to a to understand the the the assault that was occurring on the Web of Life how about yeah I had a definitely a similar transformative experience first getting involved with that resets and getting out there and seeing you know the Deep all girls that live the real like temperate rainforest FernGully experience and that seems to get right into people’s hearts very deeply very quickly and I totally relate to that so I and you have a unique experience that I definitely want people to learn about and hear about having frequent in the rainbow gathering and it’s I think it’s kind of like the the original working class Burning Man or Poor Man’s Poor Man’s Burning Man or something like that I guess I don’t know how the two were late you know in terms of how they cross-pollinated influence each other but I think a lot of people who see Burning Man as a cost-prohibitive Endeavor aren’t aware that the rainbow gatherings is and you told me some fascinating and wonderful things about that so maybe if you can talk about your that as an influence and is an experience and also stepping back from that just your encountering repair your encounters with and your integration of the hippie culture proper because I think what would my right as a punk my path went through that cycle of content just in your face or belly is anarchy you know kind of stuff to getting more refined and more sort of philosophical and theoretical about power relationships in class and class Warfare and stuff and then it was later that I got into environmentalism the environmental movement in and then specifically like for me it was more the crust anarcho-punk in amcrest was kind of the synthesis of the esthetic aesthetically it was at the synthesis of like Punk attire hippie dreadlocks in hemp jewelry in tribal type tattoos and tribal Trinkets and adornments and what not and even things like Patchouli and stuff like that so there’s a thin metal and then that the black you know that the black clothing and skulls and kind of the darker more evil aesthetic of metal and then the put the Consciousness in the energy in the spirit of of punk which may have been a kind of punk where was just you know people that whatever like not even dressed up but just the spirit and it didn’t matter what the law says not necessarily like bondage belts in Liberty spikes and stuff like that although there’s the memes are kind of intermix here and there but it’s definitely very apparent that hippie influence on you know just to everything from natural living and wellness and you know that that a lot of stuff getting aggravated so I’m curious you you have you no more of a more background experience probably directly encountering and integrating what I think it’s easy to makeover generalizations about anything that you are you have no personal experience with her that you’re critiquing from from afar it’s easy to stereotype Punk culture until you immerse yourself and develop some appreciation for how diverse it actually is I mean with with in the punk movement I mean how many schools of thought of and currents and sub currents have I have developed within you to the larger category a punk I mean everything from from straightedge to queercore to cross to pop punk ad infinitum you wouldn’t know that unless you would really involved yourself in it and then able to understand the nuances and the diversity that actually exist within the punk subculture I believe the hippie counterculture it’s been my experience that it’s every bit as diverse I mean you can stereotype all hippies as deadheads who like to wear tie dyes and who are worthless Stoners who snowboarding Stoners whose life revolves around glass pipes but I mean that’s that’s just one small aspect the hippie culture yeah they’re they’re just as the drunk punx are there in the glue to glue sniffing paw the gutter punks in the exploited Punk’s I mean yeah there’s plenty of things about the hippie counterculture a better disgraceful and embarrassing but I’m doesn’t entire Spectrum it runs the gamut and at its core the hippie movement was and is a DIY movement I mean it’s kind of a precursor to punk and you know that’s obvious if you know anything about the history of crass and you understand that with the exception of Steve ignorant every other member crass came out of the London hippie movement of the late 60s they were older hippies who recognized the Revolutionary potential of punk when it came along and also the artistic potential of it which I think they also took full advantage of but more than it I mean crafts more than any other anarchists projects of the late 20th century I mean they were almost single-handedly responsible for resurrecting anarchism as an international movement and it’s important to remember that was a bunch of hippies who did that so I think it’s it’s important to try to stay broad-minded and to think for yourself another thing about the hippie counterculture the 60s it’s important to look at what they were reacting against they be they were reacting against a mechanized society and increasingly mechanized Society and some of the ways some of the things that they pioneered are things that I benefited from later on as an anarcho punk I’m the fact that there were health food stores for me to plug into and take advantage of that I that stores existed where I could purchase tofu where I could acquire soy milk and all these new products at 7 we became important to me I have two hippies the back for that the fact that I could find organic food pretty easily here on the West Coast in the whole organic movement organic agriculture was something that was pioneered or at least Revitalize than significantly strengthened by by the hippies the back to the land movement of the early seventies the late sixties and early seventies but definitely in the 70s is when it began to occur when a lot of people realize that the values that they were fighting for where we’re real they were important they were values that they had internalized and wanted to live by but the revolution that so many people were counting on a hurting in the 60s wasn’t going to a car so I think a lot of it quote unquote hippies at that point decided that the best course of action available to them was to get out of the Cities get out of Babylon as as they call it and get back to the land to individually and in a small group secede from the system and so I also had that 2 to take advantage of the fact that you know where I was living in the Pacific Northwest there there was still plenty of functioning communes that were were established in the early 70s that I was able to visit learn from stay out for extended periods of time I mean that’s that’s where I begin to learn to grow food myself was a practicing on some of these communes that had Farms that had functioning Farms that you know provided 70% of the food that the people living there eight I had I have tremendous respect for that wing of the hippie movement people need to realize too that there has been an underground psychedelic movement that has existed at least since the time Albert Hoffman for synthesized LSD and it’s been it’s been underground Adam definitely reach the certain Peak or Apex in the late 60s the mid-to-late 60s but as the state became more repressive and totalitarian towards the use of psychedelic medicines the movement just went deeper underground and that’s that’s one of the that’s something else I think we we have to thank the real hippies for is that one at one of their roles in the grand scheme of things as I see it is that they keep these medicines and circulation and these medicines allow people to reconnect with the Earth and what I would call the guy in mind on a really deep non-intellectual Primal level in a life-altering way will you see things and learn lessons that will stick with you that will alter your perception reality permanently for the better that’s one of the things that I think hippies of really done for the counterculture and that’s one of the functions I think rainbow gathering serve that a lot of people don’t realize that they’ve never been to one I mean they are essentially group psychedelic ceremonies you’re not required to take psychedelics but there’s those medicines are being used and they’re being used by a lot of people and you’re participating whether you’re ingesting those medicines or not and I think that was one of the strategies that that people adopted I mean the first rainbow gathering was 1974 and I think at that point you know that the hardcore hippies who weren’t turning back who would who would dropped out fully and completely in their mind spiritually there was no turning back for them they realize that to keep their culture alive and they needed to continually recruit and the rainbow gatherings have served that purpose I mean thousands of people stumble upon the national rainbow gathering every year and are never the same again I’m glad you brought that up I kind of tell people now anybody who’s watched the movie Avatar and enjoyed it is paying homage to Ayahuasca and Amazonian psychedelic Shamanism because the Tree of Souls is based on the vine of Souls which is the translation of Ayahuasca and I heard from Daniel pinchbeck that it didn’t put should come as no surprise that James Cameron had had the a by waska ceremonial traditional Ayahuasca experience before writing that so it’s definitely flows that all of the translucent fluorescent alien otherworldly life-forms depicted and and and all of that come from the tryptamine experience if you will end yeah it’s been Terence McKenna said it one point I don’t know how they keep a lid on this stuff so it’s definitely that function in that role and you know I like I can now there are you know that Santo dime a legal precedent Clinton pass the Religious Freedom revitalization Act or something to that something to that effect and Terence McKenna assist talked about you know I don’t know if you said at one point in the lecture I don’t know if you’ve noticed this but the system is not going out it’s not handing out rights to people not handing out civil rights it’s not handing you know it’s not handing out to the for the oppressed and minority or minority populations who have who feel that their human rights are not being respected to say the least for psychedelic Society to to emerge and take hold it it would have to be there have to be a second telegram pollution and if anything is like the precursor to that it’s it’s sort of veiled but I mean even in in Lord of the Rings there’s references to the halflings leaf and you know there’s all these pop culture references to do his medicine is and I think that you know with the maps that the big an organization that’s trying to get clinical studies done with MDMA and all that stuff in there psilocybin studies being done it’s it’s not going to be a taboo thing it’s it’s it’s coming dancing to the volunteer for specific. Of time and work on specific projects for us at different times of the year we get most of our interns during the summer but we get interns year-round and we have in our volunteers so we have Educators we have people who are research Affiliates and who published research and use the center is one of their professional affiliations we have research assistants who helped them we do work with events so we do some Outreach events I think on Wednesday we’re going to UCLA sextravaganza which is been happening for several years on UCLA’s campus that we usually set up a booth are we do that with other things around town we’ve also have members some of our volunteers go to conferences all over the world and represent us at different places and in different areas apparently were very popular in Melbourne just found out from a friend who’s been living in Australia for the past couple years I can’t I guess we’ll have to go there at some point cool it’s a new cloud-based model it’s elegant and overhead in the neighborhood drama and that there’s a lot of reasons to transcend that six location and you can if you can be a mobile you know unit then you can just take your your your laptop and projector and some you know what your handouts or whatever you have in this b a anywhere and then again because through using Skype and using other types of internet programs you know we can get into a classroom you know that might not be able to bring us there physically but we can still do it will set it up on our end and and just stream live stream wherever we need to be and it’s very helpful to cuz we so we have volunteers I think are farthest away volunteer that we’ve had so far was in Trinidad so we can have volunteers from anywhere in the world who can work with us medication programs and so they help us Creator update or education resources in our reference materials and putting together things to help teachers facilitate this in their classes they might actually be one of our Educators we train people to go out to those classes and to give presentations to places we have research assistants to make come in with a certain amount of background knowledge and how to do academic research and some come in just wanted to learn it and so we trained them and they work with people who are doing research in various aspects of positive sexuality and so some of them get to co-author papers and some of them get to work on the ground floor of research happening and get to really get into what that is and have a voice and have an influence in what’s being done in the academic world and this is course then starts to affect policy when we’re putting scientific research in front of people and saying here this is what the says that’s not the correct or let them besides these aspects and that can be very very helpful we work with other organizations so and CSF the National Coalition for sexual freedom is one of our sort of co-working his nation’s the community academic Consortium for research on alternative sexualities we work with them as well yeah I’m getting chills yeah I’m getting chills cuz this is a lot more than I bargained for and actually seeking a lot of what you’re describing and to have yeah we hope we have a good bit of time last time feeling compelled to ask you a little bit about I guess hey if you’re into taboos right blowing them there is all I ever believed starting this week there’s going to be the biggest psychedelic science conference in the history of humanity happening in the Bay Area it’s put together by that multidisciplinary Association for psychedelic studies and the there’s a lot of really important cutting-edge legal for the first time in decades studies happening all over the world with psilocybin you know I gave magic mushrooms and MDMA and Ayahuasca and marijuana and peyote and I will gain a number of other synthetic and natural organic you could say psychedelic compounds in a lot of it is at this point in this stage of the Renaissance of research it’s really about proving the safety the relative safety of different compounds getting the dosage to be sort of understood better at also having some really important clinical trials around ending ending addiction to harmful drugs ending cigarette addiction end-of-life anxiety sexual abuse and Trauma and PTSD from War veterans there’s all these different the demographics that are starting to have really groundbreaking results and they’re doing you know they’re putting in the millions of dollars to do the the research for all this and so I bring that up just to say that this is an interesting juncture for me because the a cultural cliche about sex drugs and rock and roll and you know the way that the culture of inebrians is starting to move a large part due to Raves and festivals it’s moving more towards entheogens than just Coke and heroin and meth and booze there’s more opportunities for people who are coming into their sexuality to have access to psychedelic experiences and so there’s the new Alchemy of innocent in these Generations between sex drugs and rock and roll and if it’s it’s it’s it’s a lot more sophisticated and advanced and and and just more diverse in many ways than it was in the 60s when it was you know Acid Rock and LSD and other birth of the the hippie movement in the 60s but I’m wondering if you have in your position they’re come across any any any people who are interested in in rigorous academic study of what this new sex and drugs and rock and roll Paradigm it is shaping up to become if there’s anyone interested in that that you know of he’s been there are definitely people who are starting who are doing research on these topics and very often the connection that ends up happening in the academic research is you know if we’re looking at the sex drugs and rock and roll that of course is going to look at the outcomes and too often I think the the outcome that gets stressed is okay so what’s the what’s the public health issue so is it possible or is it likely that people are might be transmitting STIs because they might be under the influence of something or maybe they can’t we do we have to worry about consent if someone is under the influence of something that then means that they cannot now consent to what happens at that point so what happens if everybody who’s involved have done that so where does that line get drawn so I think a lot of the issues that have come up in recent research has been either on public health topics around STI transmission or on consent topics recognizing that at least by law if someone is inebriated for example they can now no longer consent to sexual activity okay so what happens if everybody involved. That’s so interesting yet that’s exactly what I’ve been actually encountering and in just by life experiences it’s there’s there’s a lot of people now who were you can say you were having expanded Consciousness through empty agentic use meaning it’s kind of a nice way of saying psychedelic no drugs but but that’s an important consideration because just because you feel like you’re enlightened than that one with God doesn’t mean that you’re immune from being the perpetrator with that Enlightenment that you don’t think you have a potential for abuse and even if it’s not that sort of shady you know where that sort of Insidious there’s also just the issue you’re not in your body if you’re having an out-of-body ecstatic psychedelic experience how how do you get even if you can send it to the idea of something earlier in the evening that has to be held through somehow and if you lose the if you become somebody else or part of your higher self or whatever it could be theirs that’s some chicky territory for sure yeah so that’s I guess there’s you know that I’ve seen like at electronic dance music events you can call him Rave but that’s kind of more you know probably more accurate term these days cuz there’s within that whole world there’s different camps and it’s more no more more bride to just called electronic dance music these days but you know there is there’s sort of harm reduction education Outreach groups that put out one sheet kind of look like glass CD mailer cards you know about business matters and they have kind of a profile of what the different substances how did how to test and make sure that they’re real or are what you’re getting it like that there’s that whole harm reduction education Outreach approach that is kind of like what you’re talking about but it’s for the party scene in just for best and better practices around that but I could see that they’re being a sum interest group of people where they would want to see things the way you’re talking about it cuz I actually no way you’re framing it it it feels like there’s a lot more due diligence for people that want to be credible and respectable and using best practices to actually think with some of these analytical tools so I’m hoping you’ll be great if there was some overlap or or or Synergy with all this stuff I think more and more what is happening as we’re seeing the people who are actually involved in all of these different spaces you know the people were actually doing whatever it is we’re talking about having more influence on the research that’s being conducted so that it creates a more authentic overall experience and I think it adds a level of legitimacy to the research so rather than a researcher sort of from on high saying well I’m going to study this group and I think what they’re doing may not be safe and so we know the perspective that I’m going to come about with this is that well this is already inherently unsafe and now I’m going to show you why it’s in safe and I think more and more we have researchers who are in these communities who are in these faces or doing all of these things and you say you know maybe we need to do is talk to the people who were actually doing this and not talk to them with a preconceived notion of what’s going on or what they’re experiencing or what may be happening but go in just as a hey could give us some information to tell us about what’s happening and I think we’re seeing more of that so there has been research on for example like barebacking and there’s been research on sex workers experiences and there’s been research on sort of the the spiritual some of the spiritual Connections in the spiritual extremes that can be experienced through extreme SM activities light hookah coals and those kinds of things so we’re seeing more and more of that happening where people who are actually in these groups are part of the subcultures are also crossovers into the academic life and we’re just seeing an amazing amount of research that starting to Bubble to the surface and get a little bit of space. I think this research has been getting done for quite a while but it can be really hard to get it published because some of the academic Publishers don’t want to hear about it and I want you to my is any of these things so if they publish something on it they want to be really careful so with our journal and with some of the other journals out there we’ve been able to bridge. Cap and actually be able to show some I feel like more authentic stories well absolutely will now in this world have so many The Gatekeepers being dissolved by the power of the internet I feel like you know there’s a lot of bad journalism or untrained journalism so there’s got to be a lot of bad or untrained or Incredible or uncredible research but maybe it’s the methodology that can be what’s the word sort of feel like I could imagine what as you were speaking I was imagining will wouldn’t it be great to train the you know that like the anthropological participation observation ethnography kind of model but if you were to train if you were coming from that subculture and you wanted to sort of document your tribe and produce your own ethnography kind of amongst your friends kind of tabulate experiences and collect notes insured compare notes is there was you recommend any kind of Crash Course doing data collection for different types of research paper I’m doing ethnography in the field and sort of how that works and how you can sort of pull everything together there’s a really good little guidebooks you know a quick online search for for some of these guys are out there and ask her if she is amazing stuff I love doing a photography by the way I think it’s an incredible tool that doesn’t get use nearly enough and and it got a lot of researchers a colleague of mine she recently did a photographic ethnographic working with lgbtq Foster Youth and homeless Youth and kind of went out gave them all cameras and said take photographs of Your World of your life of who you are, and they did a whole art show you know like found a gallery in Downtown LA and just played everyone’s photographs and and you know really got people connected to them and seeing them as people who have life experiences and they’re not just sort of a category of disadvantaged kids so yeah I think there’s there’s an easy guide books out there just like a quick you can find some quick little things of how to do ethnography and how to do that and but I think a lot of that to starts with her own storytelling so things that you do and things that others do and and all the bloggers out there and everything of these are all forms of ethnography relay yeah that’s cool it’s just that it’s exciting and hopeful cuz I feel that I’m at a point where I’m doing kind of pseudo-scientific Rogue radical research that’s way too far out for any government agency or any academic institution to touch with a ten-foot pole so it’s it’s kind of on me and my colleagues and friends 2 do this sort of underground research but then hope that it it’s done in a way that it can be respectable or it can be legitimated later you know but it is probably good to do what you’re suggesting and actually have some some templates for collecting the data that mean okay here’s what would our experiment yielded and here’s the methodology in the procedure and you can test it on your own Hardy or lab or whatever replicate what you’ve done and so can you give enough information that would allow somebody else to replicate and get similar results in their own place or find totally different results which is also fascinating injured and interesting and yeah and I think that’s really I mean that’s science that is science Sciences pushing boundaries and science is you now let’s try a new thing and see what happens and science is telling a new story or New Perspective of a story and you know I think that that’s been lost over the past many years Society The Sciences inquiry science is asking questions and wondering why thing happens and how something happens and trying to figure that out and I think that we’ve sort of collectively as a larger society have sort of lost that Focus write the word crowdsourced crowd-source funding crowdsourced ideas and editing and an art I mean you were talking about that at that photo gallery exhibit and that’s a great example if you would call that a crowd-sourced ethnographic oh yeah photojournalism nice oh yeah that’s cool that’s that’s exciting time so I’m also wondering now do you have do you do you or your organization the Center provide any kind of consulting services or any kind of where you could be hired or you could be sort of commissioned to do research or to consult on Research I don’t know that we’re I don’t know that anybody is really hired to do research cuz wouldn’t it be fantastic if someone will pay for that but that doesn’t happen if we do get hired as consultants for a variety of things so either individuals within the organization or the collective organization May consult on certain projects or consult on like creative curriculum for a particular thing and we have individuals who are consulted on court cases and I’m legal issues so so there’s a lot of that we also get hired by professionals like to teach professional workshops on various topics so that happens as well because we’re a nonprofit although those things are often we you know ask for fee cuz usually the people who were asking for these services are people who can pay for it but what going out to the schools we’re going to colleges in touch or we have a student group asked us to come and do something with them or like what you know we go to somebody’s community of answer something we may ask for an honorarium but we’re going to do this stuff for free so we really depend on our donors and our contributors and the people who support us to kind of give us the funding that we need in order to do what we want to do and and to publishing and all the other stuff so our journals available for free most of our Outreach staff and education program is all for free so yeah a lot of what we do depends on donations as opposed to people actually hiring us officially to do something right on that sounds like a healthy well-rounded multi Revenue stream nonprofit you’re definitely fulfilling your mission in so many beautiful dimensions and I’m just really happy to know that we’ve connected to some really feel better about living in the world with you more offline 2 just to explore some of these Consulting opportunities that you have and see what we’re about and all of that stuff were completely volunteer so none of us are paid for what we do I don’t run a paycheck nobody wants a paycheck that’s completely volunteer and yeah we’re just we’re just trying to let you know we just try to bring it enough funds to keep going and to keep doing what we’re doing and to expand so we’re actually going to be expanding our face-to-face education program out to Chicago over the next few months so Craig can you do that that’s well thank you so much that’s great I feel like it’s it’s really refreshing to to hear that there are people out there who are so dedicated to the cause that it’s that you did not just going to slam the door in your face if you don’t write a check if you know the first five minutes if you’re not going to bill me for this podcast interview right now about an hour into it is do you have a sort of committee or task force or team or just even a person who is either because they are a trauma Survivor or because it’s just near and dear to their hearts whatever reason is there you do consent workshops in self-defense or rape and assault prevention and any any more of the or any any of the sort of preventative and treatment kind of education unpreparedness we do have programs around consent we don’t really specifically talk about self defense or or right prevention in the standard sense so we don’t really talk about here’s what you can do to prevent being raped we talked about here’s what you can do to not rape someone because really this is not on the victim this is on the perpetrator but we also talked about you know here’s other ways that you might think about your sexual self and your identity in the power dynamics that you may interact with and find consensual outlets for some of your interests and behaviors and the citiz and you know we talked about a wide range of those things so it would be great if the people who are doing the Rape Crisis counseling and who are just in the trenches of dealing with battered women and in and going in and and doing you know investigations to catch meant to prosecute the perpetrators of all ages if they were I would let it would be great if in it you know in a perfect world they were seeking you all to educate themselves on better prevention and better version or diversion from the criminal whole that the response like they’re coming as the First Responders two incidents that would have been prevented by a proper education on all sides right and we do have we do have information so some of our researchers and and because we have people who are social workers who have conducted research through us who have published on how to do how to have a sex positive approach to handling victims how to have a sex positive approach to handling offenders and that these approaches can really help reduce crime can reduce negative stigma can reduce it comes cool is that would that be on your website or at some if I if I can follow up with you later cool okay well alright I feel like it’s this is yes. A real blessing and I just want to thank you again for your time and generous sharing of great info so with that said do you want to give the website and any other maybe upcoming events or anything else you’d like to promote and the website is positive sexuality.
