Coping: Personal Eclipse Experiments (PEE)

We behold another spectacle of human stupidity as stories abound today about how people are “staking out” places to watch the eclipse (which is just getting underway and coming towards the U.S.).

Let me explain:  Humans have always worshipped the Sun.  Read this Wikipedia entry that proves my point:

Ra (/r??/;[1] Egyptian: R?, R?) or Re (/re?/; Coptic: ??, R?) is the ancient Egyptian sun god. By the Fifth Dynasty in the 25th and 24th centuries BC, he had become a major god in ancient Egyptian religion, identified primarily with the noon sun. In later Egyptian dynastic times, Ra was merged with the god Horus, as Ra-Horakhty (“Ra, who is Horus of the Two Horizons”). He was believed to rule in all parts of the created world: the sky, the earth, and the underworld.[2] He was associated with the falcon or hawk. When in the New Kingdom the god Amun rose to prominence he was fused with Ra as Amun-Ra. During the Amarna Period, Akhenaten suppressed the cult of Ra in favor of another solar deity, the Aten, the deified solar disc, but after the death of Akhenaten the cult of Ra was restored.”

The smorgasbord of pronunciations (Ray, Rye, Raw) is a serious hint that human’s relationship with Old Sol is fox-uniformed.

A bit of history before we get to the experiments:

I first came across the Solar Logos in H.P. Blavatsky’s A Treatise on Cosmic Fire.”  This was a cornerstone book in the study of Theosophy; literally in that area between philosophy and theology.

The book, A Treatise on Cosmic Fire, is a bit speny ($42), but worth it to some because writing as Alice A. Bailey, Blavatsky lays out a kind of “solar family unit.”  Under it, the Sun is the central power, but the planets, moon, and so forth, fit into the schema as well.  In a sense, it’s not unlike a rethink of astrology.

And this is where we get to the human fuzzy-think about Earth’s relationship with the Sun.

One of the more marketed ideas is that Earth is somehow a “prison planet” and besides being popular with Alex Jones fans, there is the Scientology angle.

But as you get older, you may come to appreciate, as I have, that the Sun (variously sun, son, Son and so linked in religious texts) is in many ways a source of energy that powers everything from the chlorophyll reactions that grow plants and produce oxygen, to the natural “sun bathing” that increases dermal vitamin D production.

In short, it really is, at many levels, a power source.  Were that not the case, we would not have the Pyramids of Egypt or their “cropped-top” relatives in Central and South America.

In a very real way, the eclipse today will shut down (for just a few minutes to an hour and a half – depending on location and light levels considered – the arrival of sunshine.

And that’s where some interesting personal eclipse experiments (PEE’s) come to mind.

This is because a lot of people find their “personal energy” is closely related to light levels – which except for electric substitutes – come largely from the Sun.

It’s not clear in the literature how too much, or too little, sunlight (or just plain light) impacts how people think.  But we do know that having light on all the time is considered a form of torture and that here in the past week, insufficiently darkened sleeping areas have been statistically linked to breast cancer.  This latter is likely due to melatonin levels and that “whole mitochondrial repair process.”

Experiment Design

Eclipse hysteria will not derail my plans to engage in some personal science.

As readers know, I am prone to high-definition dreams – almost IMAX-like in quality – and these in the past week have become a bit more intense.

So, one of the obvious experiments would be to sleep through the eclipse period around noon today and record as much as can be remembered about any “dream content” that comes along.

The Sun will be partly shielded, so why not test theory?

Many people, particularly those who find they are maximally creative in the wee to early morning hours (1-4AM) my find that they get a pulse of creativity today during the eclipse.  However, thanks to the day’s media histrionics, there will be a widespread tendency for your natural instincts to ‘go experimenting’ to be swamped by mass media’s “looking at the Sun” silliness.

Another kind of personal experiment would be to engage in some “automatic writing” if you can do it.

Here’s another one of my long-term areas of science that I just don’t have enough time to work deeply into.  The idea is simple enough:  If you clear your mind and sit before a keyboard, just letting yourself type letters – rather than fixing on expressing thoughts, there are some remarkable reports in the literature of results.

It’s called automatic writing. A snip of its historical roots here:

“Automatic writing as a spiritual practice was reported by Hyppolyte Taine in the preface to the third edition of his De l’intelligence, published in 1878. Besides “etherial visions” or “magnetic auras”, Fernando Pessoa claimed to have experienced automatic writing. He said he felt “owned by something else”, sometimes feeling a sensation in the right arm that he claimed was lifted into the air without his will.[2] George Hyde-Lees, the wife of William Butler Yeats, also claimed that she could write automatically.[3]. Sri Aurobindo as well as The Mother (Mirra Alfasa) regularly practiced Automatic writing.”

Among the (intuitively) most “legit” explanations is this one:

“Neurologist Terence Hines has written that “automatic writing is an example of a milder form of dissociative state.”

The dissociative state is not necessarily a “bad thing.”  Lots of people enter it, especially those of us who have read the book C-Zone: Peak Performance Under Pressure – Robert Kriegel’s book dating from the mid-1980’s.

Elaine likes to call it my “writer’s trance” when I am deep in research and writing.  It’s a place where literally, time stops and you are in total focus.

I spent most of this weekend in ‘that place’ (writer’s trance)  working on my upcoming book Dimensions Next Door because the topic is so captivating.

The distinction is between writing with a purpose or an outcome in mind.  Automatic writing is different:  You write (in the dissociative state) and just let whatever comes rolling out of your subconscious flow onto the screen. Nonjudgmental writing processes can be reviewed later in the full waking state.

Whether automatic writing during an eclipse is an interesting question and one perhaps worth answering:  Does the solar presence impact the dissociative (or C-Zone) in useful ways?

At the risk of sounding a too “out there” another thought that comes to mind is parenting children (having well-timed sex) during the eclipse.

I doubt there has been any kind of psychological study conducted on the progression through Life of people born during an eclipse – so again it’s a totally obvious experimental study open to research yet do we hear of it or the results?

This investigational link between astronomical events and human paths through life was best summed up by Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens in his biography:

 “I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year (1910), and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: “Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.”

He did.

Most days, people think that’s “cute.”  Today, perhaps a few will think more deeply on point.

I could go on with further examples, but time is of the essence.  I have a nap to prepare for.

And even if you don’t have any personal experiments plans for today’s event:  Please take a moment during the eclipse to focus ahead to the next PowerBall Drawing.

Imagine the winning numbers.

Then, if you wouldn’t mind, send them in. Email or as a comment.

I’m hereby volunteering to cross-tab the results and buy what we can only hope will be the winning ticket.

By the way, if the4 Powerball numbers hit, I will write books only…not daily columns.  Long-form thinking is a disappearing art.

One last point:  Should calendars be adjusted in the zone of totality to add another day to the year?

It seems perfectly logical to me:  After all, a “day” is a cycle of when the sun is out to night.  Since there is an extra cycle today, doesn’t that mean much of the Midwest will have an extra Day?  See?  This is the stuff the mainstream media doesn’t mention.  Rigorous thinking is not allowed – just the parrot and rewrite crap which is oh, so disappointing.

Seriously….or at least, nearly so…

Don’t waste the day – and do send in your PowerBall picks…

In all other ways – besides the stupid lemming-like behavior and media frenzy – this is just Monday.

Fortunately, this time, I’ve got one of my better excuses  ever to take a midday nap.

Now, get out there and PEE yourself!

Write when you get rich.

Coping: Personal Eclipse Experiments (PEE) — 20 Comments

  1. Hi George. We can have a bit more fun with the conspiracy minded. Let’s suppose, since I’m stuck awake at 0300 this morning with “brain on fire” stuff rolling through my head, that with most electronics nowadays coming from that certain Asian country, they’ve built in certain signal receptors so when they receive a certain pattern, they “shut off” certain things, and like others have said, the bulk of young humans running those ships today are buried in their electronics and oblivious to that giant shadow of a ship bearing down on them, no one notices until metal crunches. Social media is a terrible disease on so many levels, and to young humans “stuck” at sea for months?

    In this case, the “probe” idea would be very useful, because only after a few test runs, the 7th Fleet is now “standing down” until the Admiralty (gents likely over 30 and not addicted to electronics) can get to the bottom of things.

    If you can conduct a couple of tests “under the radar” (pun fully intended) to make sure you “can” do something in wartime, and get a whole fleet to stand down, removing current threats to your sovereignty, wouldn’t you?

  2. I slept through the eclipse. Lol i know I know, it’s a once in a life time experiance. Ha ha ha ha!
    I have had thousands of “once in a lifetime” exprriances.

    I worked a ton this weekend. 27 hours straight friday to Sunday about 4am. Back to working nights. It is as you say George, “follow the money.” So i work where the money is.

    I am Ra. Lonesome goomba on a forum I go to time to time started a thread as Ra. Trying to be all “Law of One”. So I yanked his chain a little. And let him be. Whoever it was they gave me a wide birth, so I suspect they know me from somewhere around the web.

    Law of One is Another luciferian supported doccument. Openly suppprted by “Hidden Hand” if you reas the illuminati news. Lol

    Wonder if it was David Wilcock. lol Gawd that dude irritates the sh!t out of me. False prophet for profit. Love to take him to the wood shed and have a come to Jesus talk with him.

    Anyway. That is my 2 cents. You know me, I’m a Christian. That doesn’t mean I have a closed mind, like my buddy that is a homicide detective says, “In God we trust, everyone else is suspect.”

  3. “Please take a moment during the eclipse to focus ahead to the next PowerBall Drawing.”

    Don’t buy another ticket ..save your money…
    I know the ticket I bought has to be the winner..
    Since I never even win a dollar this ticket has to be the one..

    Speaking about personal experiments.i didn’t even give the eclipse be a second thought I guess I’ll never be a sun worshiper. You know animals are smart enough that they won’t look at the sun to bad humans haven’t gained that level of intelligence..from reading the news lately and everyone wanting to destroy historical monuments it reminds me of isis destroying monuments over there..I sure hope they’re hunting down the idiot that’s instigating this mess.. if it was a real issue you would have thought they’d have done something back in Roosevelt administration it was a monument before Rushmore and before lady liberty was commissioned as a federal monument. I’ve been playing with ultrasonics as in a vaporizer transducer. It will bore a hole in plexiglass.
    The other one is I’m trying to design a hinge for a home made Murphy bed but have to make sure it won’t crush my grand daughter as it is lowered.. I know I should just buy the hardware kit but then that would be to easy..

  4. One more comment regarding all of the recent collisions.

    As an Officer of the Deck aboard the USCGC Munro (WHEC-724) I got to experience 120 days or so of the onscene response to the Soviet Union’s downing of KAL 007 in the Sea of Japan in 1983.

    Even though it was well known that all aboard the airliner died. President Reagan used this as an excuse to put the US Navy right off the Soviet Union’s coast under the pretext of a “search and rescue” operation. Since the Munro was on good will call in Sasebo, Japan. We got underway as the only USCG vessel within 1500 miles to coordinate the “search”.

    Long story short. The USSR was not happy about the heavy US Navy presence and matched with a number of their own vessels. There were many instances where a Soviet vessel took a run at us or played chicken. Many close calls but no collisions because all on the US side knew seamanship and how to maneuver.

    There is simply no excuse of a collision between a US warship (with all it’s sensors) and a commercial vessel. That is why the 7th fleet has gone into a stand down.

  5. Compliments to OilMan2 and Warhammer.

    I am a bit puzzled about the ship collisions.
    I served on the Tolovana AO-64 (oiler replenishment under-way) for tincans, cruisers and carriers…and the Ashtabula AO-51…1960 1961. We had 24 hour watches on the bridge port & starboard, as well as a watch on the fantail, in case someone fell over-board. Physical watches. I stood many, many watches 4 hour duty watches on the bridge at all hours of the day and night.
    Even when I did my reserve duty (2-weeks) aboard DD-539 the Tingey we had physical watches with binoculars 7×35 to look for anything on the horizon that might be a problem.

    I simply do not understand why someone did not see the craft that hit these ships. This is not seamanship. :-(((

  6. Interesting note, Ra the Egyptian god is Hebrew for…to perceive, hence the god of perception, or light. In fact all of the Egyptian gods have Hebrew names. Odd for a culture that enslaved the Hebrews as lessers, to have the gods using the Hebrew language.

  7. If you want to look at conspiracy theories, remember Obama replaced numerous high-level officials in the military. Could it be that some of these officials were replaced at lower levels to be placed on ships with inferior sailors taking the helm causing these accidents to take place because of a lack of knowledge or could it be on purpose?

  8. Love Blavatsky’s writings. My opinion follows theosophy in that the Great Being associated with the Sun is our “Heavenly Father”. It functions as parent, mentor, resource manager, and husbandman. It is responsible for all that live in It’s system and keeps things on track with the Cosmic Plan. Since I first learned of this view, it has made more sense to me than the Middle Eastern tribal mythology I was taught as a child.

    As for the eclipse, I clearly remember the partial one I saw in 1969 as it made a profound impression. Instead of watching the Sun, I recommend watching the environment and living creatures during the darkening. Get fully immersed in your senses and soak it up; you will be amazed.

    • You do know that H.P. blavatsky is know to be a luciferian, right? A real worshiper. I have read all the books at theosphy.org. the entire library. Lol I had a job sitting on my ass all day for 5 years in a server room monitoring the servers “incase” of an emergency which then i would be there if needed. In that time,(working 12 hour days, 5-6 days a week) I read every book offered in the library and about half of the one’s I’m the hidden libabry which you have to have permission from the librarian aka guardian to access. Kinda a weird dude with a toga.

      And got paid to do it.

      To quote H.P Blavatski

      “The Secret Doctrine”…

      * “Esoteric philosophy admits neither good nor evil per se, as existing independently in nature. The cause for both is found, as regards the Kosmos, in the necessity of contraries or contrasts, and with respect to man, in his human nature, his ignorance and passions. There is no devil or the utterly depraved, as there are no Angels absolutely perfect, though there may be spirits of Light and of Darkness; thus LUCIFER – the spirit of Intellectual Enlightenment and Freedom of Thought – is metaphorically the guiding beacon, which helps man to find his way through the rocks and sandbanks of Life, for Lucifer is the LOGOS in his highest, and the “Adversary” in his lowest aspect – both of which are reflected in our Ego.” (Vol. 2, p. 162)

      The older books by Blavatski are very dark. The ones written in the 1780’s. Maybe I got my authors mixed up. But i do know for a fact, she was a luciferian and very in deep with dark occult ritual majic.

  9. During the EEE-clipse (as we say in NC) take a moment to look at the ground. One thing you’ll see is that as light filters through the leaves of trees, thousands of little crescent suns will project on the ground. The tiny gaps between the leaves form a sort of pinhole lens. 73.

    • Eclipse in Portland OR was 99.4% totatlity and the number of crescent shapes all over the driveway and on the wall of my house was spectacular. Got out the camera and took pictures.

  10. OT, but do we have any readers who can shed some possible Naval background on exactly why we have had two naval ships collide with slow moving commercial ships in less than 90 days?? Both with naval casualties…

    I’m not a navy guy, but have been in offshore work for decades. One would think that, given they ARE the Navy, there would be radars and sonars galore onboard, and as they are a fighting vessel, there ought to be some kind of proximity or perimeter alert for these ships?

    Seriously, how does a commercial merchant ship sneak up on our naval vessels and ram them without our crews being aware?

    I am sorry, but the only pictures that come to mind is a bunch of kids thumbhumping their phones or playing vid-games on fast Navy computers while on bridge duty. Or maybe all hands in the galley to watch diversity training videos?

    Please don’t tell me it’s crowded sea lanes – I have been where this last accident happened while towing a drilling rig – it’s open sea.

      • I am NOT buying that – a freaking guy in the crows nest on a sailing ship could do better collision avoidance.

        You and Warhammer are essentially saying that nobody goes OUTSIDE the ship and the bridge doesn’t have a visual watch any longer. C’mon George – how hard is it to miss an oil tanker? You piloted boats. Even if the tanker was in the wrong navigation-aly, the results indicate that these captains (at best) expect a massive ship to change course to avoid their smaller craft. Our Coast Guard has no problems navigating congested offshore Louisiana and Texas, filled with ships, tankers, rigs and oil platforms – they seem to do just fine.

        We were taught to “navigate defensively” when training to move offshore rigs – just like defensive driving. We have to anticipate nearby traffic and their trajectories because a floating rig simply cannot stop or change course any better than a square boat (which is what they are). One would imagine combat navigation is also taught, and might be a little more intense than my own rig-move training.

        Having been in and survived numerous maritime fires, etc. – these two incidents are amazing, as they imply that the US no longer “looks out the windows” when navigating, but stays locked into a dark bridge filled with computer monitors.

        And yet they shot at very small Iranian patrol boats in MENA, so they obviously “saw” them in one fashion or another. And the sea lanes in Iran are VERY constricted.

        If this is some kind of “probe”, then whoever is doing the probing is laughing their butts off. I am more inclined to believe that it might be chinese computer chips that had been “activated”. All they would need to do is screw up the math functions by 10% and navigation programs things would be useless. But that implies that the Chinese can remotely activate…

        Occam’s Razor – our bridge officers simply don’t look out of the windows and are running their ships as if they were in a video game environment…

      • One awful out of the box thought is that we have saboteurs on board under color of normal navy seamen. I don’t like the thought, but all possibilities must be considered.

    • I agree Oilman2 – ESPECIALLY with all that super duper high tech equipment on board – how in the world does this equipment miss those huge commercial ships? One would think there would be all sorts of loud warning going off way before the collision. I mean, if my ‘low tech’ SUV can warn me of collision avoidance – in front, side and back, how can high tech Navy miss it??? Has to be operator error…at least that is what my insurance company would tell me if I got in an accident with my low tech SUV and my SUV systems had warned me.

      • Have to agree here. Two modern ships, electronically enhanced, chock full of collision avoidance and other nav gear as well as classified things that would prevent this manage to get together in open ocean? Twice?!?! Same feeling I had the morning of 9/11 when the second aircraft hit. Not an accident – and certainly over the top when it happens twice in a short span. No sir, someone is probing something or testing something. Could be complete incompetence on the part of the crew (doubtful) or maybe a spoofing of GPS signal (seen that happen for many years in tests) – or even as mentioned – a trojan horse chip (fun to think about but probably not the case).

        I have to go with narrow area GPS spoofing or possibly internal sabotage. Of course the theory that the sailors and officers on the bridges are only marginally competent exists, but even today’s politics can’t override the survival instinct of those aboard. Interesting – too bad all we’ll ever read about both will be only partially accurate.

    • Perhaps, it’s the vessel’s names and nothing else to speculate about, just saying, since we are into wu-wu some times abt. different happenings.

      P.s. When I was a kid I’d read stories to that effect!

    • No Naval background, but there’s a military commentator on one of the local radio stations who I’ve come to respect. As I recall one of his explanations from Monday: before 9/11, Naval crew were given up to a year’s worth of training in navigation functions. After 9/11, this type of training fell off in perceived importance and it would be unusual now for even a few months of training to be provided. When the commanding officers, who are likely to be more experienced and properly trained, aren’t on watch, the younger crew simply doesn’t have the training or experiential base to deal with avoidance maneuvers. He seemed to fall less into the conspiracy camp than the “well what did you expect, under the circumstances” view point.

      This is probably an imperfect recollection of his explanation. I’ll try and pay closer attention if he mentions it again.
