From Sadassa Silvia to All Participants(09:13:18 PM)

Hi! Sadassa Silvia here - I finally made it after being caught in a loop between the refresh and download button....just had to restart! Excited to be here...in Eugene.

From Ed Firmley to All Participants(09:13:40 PM)

Glad you made it!

From Sadassa Silvia to All Participants(09:13:51 PM)

yay!

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:16:53 PM)

Welcome to everyone! We are just getting underway. If you have any questions for Rich or a tech question, please use the chat to ask

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:19:22 PM)

This is, in a sense, that signal that Mr. Doyle considered renting a shortwave to send. But instead, it was invitational. Since, we have agreed to be here... to hear it. This is, in a sense... that radio. If... we... what -is- the radio that VALIS ... transmits on... ? An i/o rod... a rod-i-o?

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:20:41 PM)

begin feedback loop :)

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:20:54 PM)

; )

From Linda Fox to All Participants(09:22:17 PM)

Richard- We look forward to you finally seeing Radio Free Albemuth - Great that you're doing this! - John Alan Simon & Linda Fox

From Sadassa Silvia to All Participants(09:23:38 PM)

vesica piscis!

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:24:10 PM)

To Everyone just joining us--Welcome! Your microphones are on mute until we go to Q&A. Please use the chat function to send me a message (select my name from the dropdown) and let me know what you want to ask and whether you have a mic and webcam or if you want me read your question myself

From Buster Friendly to All Participants(09:24:55 PM)

will there be hosting screenings of the film?

From Rybys Rommey to All Participants(09:25:07 PM)

"Entropy is information that is hidden from you" Leonard Susskind

From Wilbur Mercer to All Participants(09:28:35 PM)

pharmakon?

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:28:48 PM)

the poisoned present

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:30:16 PM)

Unless you could teach us more, your comment is bizarre.

From Elden Rosen to All Participants(09:30:41 PM)

Haha, I like it.

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:30:45 PM)

the pharmakon is both a poison and a present

From Wilbur Mercer to All Participants(09:31:14 PM)

:) gracias!

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:31:39 PM)

:)

From Zina Pallas to All Participants(09:32:15 PM)

tinfoil hats!

From Buster Friendly to All Participants(09:32:19 PM)

how did u see the film?

From Buster Friendly to All Participants(09:33:48 PM)

Radio Free Albemuth

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:33:58 PM)

A brilliant and true thesis. Excellent.

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:34:15 PM)

And it can go far beyond psy drugs.

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:34:47 PM)

Because it can deliver the intelligence-equivalent... of ‘tripping’... which is something we have no concept for.

From Yah to All Participants(09:36:00 PM)

this chat window is consuming too much of my attention. close! :)

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:36:50 PM)

see you later, Yah!

From Rybys Rommey to All Participants(09:36:54 PM)

information is the basis of all reality

From Yah to All Participants(09:37:11 PM)

oh, I'm still here... :)

From Yah to All Participants(09:37:38 PM)

(sorry- i meant the text is distracting.)

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:37:54 PM)

no worries, Yah!

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:38:35 PM)

Remember, if you have a question for Rich, please send me a chat message and let me know what you want to ask and whether you have a mic and webcam and want to ask it yourself, directly to Rich

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(09:47:53 PM)

All about convenience, right, Fred?

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(09:48:02 PM)

;)

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(09:49:38 PM)

Hedonism is too simplistic. PKD suffered for his revelations, neh?

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:50:00 PM)

Death and intelligence may be the same thing. We are derivations.

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:50:32 PM)

Knowing all the molecule positions would affect itself, it is impossible.

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(09:51:19 PM)

It's all learning. Strength on the Journey - Journey well :).

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:52:39 PM)

All psy-drug experience delivers a mimic of what Dr. Dylan is speaking toward. Which is the movements of intelligence, rather than merely awe ... that are -much- more powerfully than plants or chemicals. Demonstrably. And they are accessible. Immediately. They are, in fact, examples of what we might call relational superfunction. This is our natural way of being, outside of our cultures.

From Sadassa Silvia to All Participants(09:52:50 PM)

Yes! the kaleidescope looks within...We are open and wired (spirit eye) to receive communication from all frequencies - so everything "talks" (inanimate objects as well (toasters!))...PKD connects w/ shamanic wisdom and triggers our perception of it!

From Zina Pallas to All Participants(09:52:55 PM)

Question- If we expend our thoughts, don't we also create more? and hence more space?

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:53:15 PM)

Aye, this is why knowing all molecule positions interferes with itself.

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:53:28 PM)

And what R is talking about is a mode of -recursion-.

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:53:33 PM)

Great question, Zina...do you want to ask this directly to Rich?

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:53:37 PM)

That produces something like -an intelligence moire-

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:53:58 PM)

Remember, folks, send me a chat (select my name from the dropdown menu) and let me know if you have a question for Rich

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(09:54:03 PM)

safe when used as directed.

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(09:54:28 PM)

Joe, don't recursive systems infinitely regress?

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:54:36 PM)

Nailed again. That’s the locus. The linguistic interface.

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:54:52 PM)

Iran: Not necessarily, mechanical systems may. Sentiences are not precisely mechanical.

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(09:55:12 PM)

Just curious, thanks for taking a stab.

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:55:30 PM)

Stay curious. It’s just. But not as in mere!

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(09:55:48 PM)

Indeed :).

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:56:26 PM)

I am so glad to hear RD using this word: birthright. It is really important to recognize what he is saying. He is speaking toward something we bring with us, but are somehow denied.

From Joe Fernwright to All Participants(09:57:31 PM)

From representaions... which begin... with langauge. And that's part of why the linguistic interface is ... a locus of leverage and possibility.

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(09:58:03 PM)

irreal

From Angel Archer to All Participants(09:59:04 PM)

Next session is January 9th!

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:00:07 PM)

The entire course schedule is here http://english.la.psu.edu/features/radio-free-valis

Let me know if you have questions! send me a private chat by selecting my name from the menu in the chat

From Bill Black to All Participants(10:03:49 PM)

awesome

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:05:17 PM)

More questions? Let me know!

From Buster Friendly to All Participants(10:08:03 PM)

would you consider your download as "channeling" from a particular "source"?

From Iran Deckard to All Participants(10:16:06 PM)

Excellent response. Thanks.

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:17:36 PM)

More questions? Send me a message by selecting my name in the chat and let me know what you want to ask and whether you have a mic and webcam (or if you want me to read your question)

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(10:29:29 PM)

wink wink nudge nudge

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:30:23 PM)

an illuminati handshake

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:30:39 PM)

:)

From Sadassa Silvia to All Participants(10:31:13 PM)

a trippy VALIS practice (&fast route to accessing dimensional consciousness)- is the way children play make-believe! - with anything&everything! - real&unreal! the information gleaned in random "mediumship" of this kind astonishes -what comes through...is oracular...is Contact....so...play with kids.....!!! kids definitely know!

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(10:31:31 PM)

the pink laser coming out of the their 3rd eye is a dead giveaway.

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:32:01 PM)

Great point, Erica!

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:32:39 PM)

lol, Fred!

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(10:32:49 PM)

The good secrets come in the form of the absurd.

From Luba Luft to All Participants(10:33:15 PM)

None Dual is a good word :)

From Luba Luft to All Participants(10:33:20 PM)

on

From Luba Luft to All Participants(10:33:23 PM)

Non

From Luba Luft to All Participants(10:33:27 PM)

:))))

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:33:28 PM)

Hi Luba!!!!

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(10:33:37 PM)

Kids haven't been currupted with the syntax to dismiss their "play".

From Luba Luft to All Participants(10:33:47 PM)

Hi Angel! Great discussion missed most, just came from work

From Stanton Mick to All Participants(10:33:55 PM)

I wonder how much the "view from nowhere" of hyperobjectivity - exemplified by NSA/Big Data's bastardized omniscience - is responsible for this cybernetic swing back into the subjective. Watching somebody's recordings through Google Glass or GoPro, you have a kind of pop ego death...

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:34:56 PM)

Hi Michael! Wonderful to have you here as well

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:35:20 PM)

and I love that... "Big Data's bastardized omniscience"

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:36:26 PM)

Luba, (and everyone) we'll be sending out the recording in a day or so

From Luba Luft to All Participants(10:37:23 PM)

Thank you Angel!

From Stanton Mick to All Participants(10:38:54 PM)

Paranoia is a natural side effect of the self struggling to adapt to ecodelic insights

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(10:39:03 PM)

And so spreads the virus. Thanks Mobius et al.

From Sadassa Silvia to All Participants(10:39:37 PM)

PKD's paranoia..."the HORROR" -puts us on the path of loving what is, especially if science can prove this is a hologram or program........a LOVE program?

From Fred Arctor to All Participants(10:40:12 PM)

we are but waves made of waves

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:41:45 PM)

mobius@psu.edu

From Sophia to All Participants(10:42:04 PM)

Thanks to Rich and other participants for observing the unfolding. UBIK--The book that began my experiences with lucid dreaming. I can't wait!!!

From Sadassa Silvia to All Participants(10:42:10 PM)

check out The Penultimate Truth - You Tube film on the life of PKD - interviews with 4 out of 5 of his wives!

From Angel Archer to All Participants(10:42:11 PM)

You can also comment on our SynchCast Facebook page

From Stanton Mick to All Participants(10:42:14 PM)

Yay!

From Elden Rosen to All Participants(10:42:30 PM)

No bibliomancy?

From Jason Taverner to All Participants(10:42:41 PM)

Yay Bibliomancy!

From Elden Rosen to All Participants(10:42:53 PM)

Yess!!

From Elden Rosen to All Participants(10:42:55 PM)
