Santa Claus Conquers The Martians

Santa Claus Conquers The Martians is a 1964 science fiction film.

Directed by: Nicholas Webster, Produced by: Paul L. Jacobson, Joseph E. Levine, Arnold Leeds. Written by: Paul L. Jacobson, Glenville Mareth. Starring: John Call, Leonard Hicks, Vincent Beck, Bill McCutcheon, Victor Stiles, Donna Conforti, Chris Month, Pia Zadora, Leila Martin, Charles Renn.

Music by: Milton DeLugg, Cinematography: David L. Quaid, Editing by: William Henry. Distributed by: Embassy Pictures Corporation. Release date(s): November 14, 1964. Running time: 81 min. Country: USA. Language: English. Budget: $200,000 (estimated).

The people of Mars are worried that their children are watching too much Earth television from station KID-TV including an interview with Santa Claus in his workshop at the North Pole.

Consulting 800-year old Martian sage Chochem (Yiddish for "genius"), they are advised that the children of Mars are growing distracted due to the society's overly rigid structure. From infancy their education is fed into their brains through machines and they are not allowed individuality or freedom of thought.

Chochem notes that he had seen this coming for centuries, and says the only way to help the children is to allow them their freedom and be allowed to have fun. To do this, they need a Santa Claus figure, like on Earth. The Martian leaders decide to abduct Santa Claus from Earth and bring him to Mars. As the Martians can't distinguish between all the fakes Santas, they kidnapped two children to find the real one.

Dry (Christmas) Tree vs. High Moisture Tree Fire

The U.S. Fire Administration partnered with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Building and Fire Research Laboratory to illustrate on video the dramatic affects of fire when it ignites a maintained (wet) cut Christmas tree and a dry tree.

Maintained (Wet) Tree: Ignition occurs at 0 seconds; fire at ignition point on tree continues to burn but does not spread at 30 seconds; fire at ignition point on tree continues to burn but does not spread at 1 minute; fire at ignition point on tree did not spread, flames self-extinguish, and tree (trunk, branches, and needles) is fully intact at 1 minute and 30 seconds (end of video).

Dry Tree: Ignition occurs at 0 seconds; other tree branches become involved at 5 seconds; most of the tree is burning at 15 seconds; tree is fully engulfed in flames at 30 seconds; only the tree trunk and portions of some of the larger branches are intact after all the needles have burned away at 1 minute and 30 seconds (end of video).

Cluetrain Manifesto: Part 3

  1. What's happening to markets is also happening among employees. A metaphysical construct called "The Company" is the only thing standing between the two.

  2. Corporations do not speak in the same voice as these new networked conversations. To their intended online audiences, companies sound hollow, flat, literally inhuman.

  3. In just a few more years, the current homogenized "voice" of business—the sound of mission statements and brochures—will seem as contrived and artificial as the language of the 18th century French court.

  4. Already, companies that speak in the language of the pitch, the dog-and-pony show, are no longer speaking to anyone.

  5. Companies that assume online markets are the same markets that used to watch their ads on television are kidding themselves.

  6. Companies that don't realize their markets are now networked person-to-person, getting smarter as a result and deeply joined in conversation are missing their best opportunity.
So many of the Cluetrain points speak directly to so many of the stages of the transformation process that I outlined in Frequency. As the world's vibration speeds up, old systems that don't change, that stubbornly fight "ego-death"—like corporations—will fail.

The November 11:11 Magazine


Radio Host and spiritual leader, Simran Singh, produces an exquisite print magazine called 11:11—A Magazine Devoted to the Journey of the Soul. The newest issue for November/December has the theme of SELF-CARE ARTISAN and features an article on Penney and Frequency. It also features articles about Jack Canfield, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Iyanla Vanzant.

Seizures and Frequency


I was contacted recently by a woman whose son had just experienced a seizure, quite unexpectedly, at work. She said, "I know he has been under a lot of stress in all areas of his life—health, relationships, his job is ending soon and he has to move. That may be the cause but I was wondering if you had any insight about seizures and frequency?"

Here's what I came up with; perhaps it may be food for thought for others. . .

It's an interesting question. As I put my attention on it, I get that seizures are often the body trying to adjust itself to a higher frequency or a smoother flow of energy through certain pathways that may need to be opened for the evolution to proceed. Like part of a recircuiting process. If there are blockages, which could be various beliefs, habits of awareness, electrochemical imbalances due to locked in emotional habits, or possibly even too much buildup of "artificial" energies like efts, static of some sort. . .then I sense that the body tries to shudder to throw that off, to shift the pattern, to break old patterns, much like an energetic chiropractic adjustment.

I think being in nature can be a big help to neutralize too much artificial stimulation. Fasting to some degree might also help the system simplify for a little while. Perhaps things like acupuncture, tai chi, smooth and rhythmic movement of any sort (swimming) especially that involves diagonal connections of left and right and upper and lower body, as well as music and sound that can, through regular calm rhythms and continuous tones, smooth the perceptual pathways. . .these things may assist in the shifting of the brain and brain-body pathways.

The theme this year, “Never Forget” is a tribute to the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Over 20,000 participants marched this year alongside 3,000 active-duty servicemen and women. Five Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, including Marine Corps veteran Dakota Meyer and 94-year-old Nicholas Oresko, the nation’s oldest living honoree marched.

Cluetrain MANIFESTO: PART 2

  1. The Internet is enabling conversations among human beings that were simply not possible in the era of mass media.

  2. Hyperlinks subvert hierarchy.

  3. In both internetworked markets and among intranetworked employees, people are speaking to each other in a powerful new way.

  4. These networked conversations are enabling powerful new forms of social organization and knowledge exchange to emerge.

  5. As a result, markets are getting smarter, more informed, more organized. Participation in a networked market changes people fundamentally.

  6. People in networked markets have figured out that they get far better information and support from one another than from vendors. So much for corporate rhetoric about adding value to commoditized products.

  7. There are no secrets. The networked market knows more than companies do about their own products. And whether the news is good or bad, they tell everyone.

Part 1: The Cluetrain Manifesto

Networked markets are beginning to self-organize faster than the companies that have traditionally served them. Thanks to the web, markets are becoming better informed, smarter, and more demanding of qualities missing from most business organizations.

Markets are conversations.

Markets consist of human beings, not demographic sectors.

Conversations among human beings sound human. They are conducted in a human voice.

Whether delivering information, opinions, perspectives, dissenting arguments or humorous asides, the human voice is typically open, natural, uncontrived.

People recognize each other as such from the sound of this voice.

The Internet is enabling conversations among human beings that were simply not possible in the era of mass media.

One Voice in Many: Part 10


I've been posting bits of an old manuscript I wrote in the late 70s. . .and it's interesting to see that in my attempts then to merge into the collective consciousness and speak from that unified voice, so much of what was said is so simple and true today. The Voice in me could easily be the Divine Voice inside anyone and everyone. Previous parts can be found on Jul 12, Aug 19, Aug 26, and Nov 4, 2010; Jan 15, Feb 9, Mar 30, May 17, and Sep 17, 2011.

THE STILL CENTER

We are caught in a whirlwind of reactive activity based on the dysfunctional logic of the distracting mind. But all dervishes rotate about a still core, an eye that is single. Notice synchronous timing and the grace that is possible, even within activity that is highly accelerated or chaotic. Love is instantaneous and miracles are absolutely natural. Keep this perspective and it keeps you in right relationship to the Divine. You are a loving child and a cocreator with the Divine, working from a higher plan.
The Love of the Divine is actually YOUR love, since in the end, as evolution completes, you discover that you, and all beings, ARE the Divine. The experience of love as your core identity inheres in your nature and cannot be prevented from becoming conscious.

There is no separation between you and the Divine, and there is only one energy that is the true substance of the Divine: LOVE. The path back into this experience is a sacred journey, each step is blessed, and your way home is cared for and tended to. None perish, all grow. All succeed on their paths, no matter how divergent or different their processes may seem from your own.
Doubt not in times of confusion; fear not in times of panic. Keep the still center. Know that a higher vision encompasses all, misses nothing, shines of you forever. There is no end, except to illusion.

ENLIGHTENMENT

Enlightenment is acknowledgment that this, right here, is the Kingdom of Light. It exists within and without, now, everywhere. It is not out in space nor at a distant time in some future. How much light we see within our own consciousness is how much light we are; and we are identifying with larger and larger spheres of light. As we identify ourselves more and more as the Divine, we have more and more influence in the earth plane as agents of transformation. Somehow, as we are ready, Spirit reveals more of our own light to our conscious mind. How does this happen? How are we paced in the remembrance of who we already are?

Enlightenment, or the end of evolution, is the degree to which consciousness is aware of itself. When fully aware, there is the end of observation. It is gratitude that opens you to the inflow of memory of these deep and true states, these experiences of core identity. Each step you take is a learning, an initiation, and a transition into new levels of seeing. Each step up the mountain gives a new view, each new seeding of a thought or memory into your conscious mind creates a new worldview. Initiations occur commonly, every day, to everyone. Notice those things in your life that stand out—these are marker points, initiations. You no longer need to go into the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid for ceremonial revelations. Major revelatory experiences are right under your nose, sprinkled through daily life.


INITIATION AND REVELATION

To find truth today you must use your inner senses and discern the finest levels of meaning in what occurs around you. Revelation comes from within; the Great Initiator of ancient times is no more, now that facilitator is YOU. There are, of course, nonphysical beings who assist your spiritual growth but in a larger sense they are aspects of you and your growth IS their growth as well. We are all learning to remember and become more of who we already are. Even to the highest ascended masters, where identity as "entity" exists, there is still separation from the Divine.

Revelation and initiation always bring heightened awareness that identity dissolves progressively into unity.
So as you become more conscious, we all do. No light can increase its measure without increasing in like proportion everywhere. An initiation only frees you to live more fully within the laws of the universe and through that, to experience true freedom and peace. There is forever the same motion that you now call "work." As you evolve, it is known as joy, as action taken in love.

Five Levels of Social Consciousness


I thought this was interesting, as seen as part of the transformation process. . . The Institute of Noetic Sciences bulletin, The Noetic Post, Vol 1 No2, reports:

"The five levels of social consciousness that we have identified include:

(1) embedded, where consciousness is shaped without conscious awareness by social, cultural, and biological factors and which is a kind of presocial consciousness;

(2) self-reflexive, in which people gain awareness of how their experiences are conditioned by the social world through reflection and contemplative practices;

(3) engaged, in which people are not only aware of the social environment but also begin to mobilize an intention to contribute to the greater good in some outwardly directed way;

(4) collaborative, in which people see themselves as a part of the collective and begin to work with others to co-create or shape the social environment by collaborative actions, such as collective inquiry, social networking, and learning; and

(5) resonant, in which people report a sense of essential interrelatedness with others—a field of shared experience and emergence that is felt and expressed in social groups and that stimulates social transformation."

The Pleasure State of the Universe


Wherever I am, I can dissolve the apparition of the physical world, my body, and my personality-self. I can become a ball of light floating in the center of space and time, totally supported from all directions. As I float here I can raise my vibratory rate and my light changes. It moves from golden to intense diamond, and I "see" myself as a glossy area in the field. The longer I hold this in my awareness, or hold my awareness at this focus, the larger the space of "me" becomes.

The larger the space of me becomes, the harder it is to hold it, and soon a natural motion of expansion takes over for my mind, and the motion moves on its own, and the scope of the space of me adjusts itself according to universal rhythms. The ride is sublime! As I experience the ride I become so much more and less and more of what exists and I don't ever use mind to stop or hold because that would be rude; that would be an uncomfortable disturbance to the natural pleasure state of the universe.

As I continue being with the ride, I become aware of being other beings and groups of beings and in these foci exist streams and webs and intricate lacelike patterns of knowledge and progressions of insights to conclusions that only last a fraction of a millisecond before melting into new flows, and the flow through a knowledge web goes forward, backward, all directions at once. Going into these knowledge webs is another kind of ride where I see that saturating myself into omnidirectional knowledge pathways instantaneously is the most natural form of knowing.

SNAKE by D. H. Lawrence


A snake came to my water-trough
On a hot, hot day, and I in pyjamas for the heat,
To drink there.

In the deep, strange-scented shade of the great dark carob-tree
I came down the steps with my pitcher
And must wait, must stand and wait, for there he was at the trough before me.

He reached down from a fissure in the earth-wall in the gloom
And trailed his yellow-brown slackness soft-bellied down, over the edge of the stone trough
And rested his throat upon the stone bottom,
And where the water had dripped from the tap, in a small clearness,
He sipped with his straight mouth,
Softly drank through his straight gums, into his slack long body,
Silently.

Someone was before me at my water-trough,
And I, like a second comer, waiting.

He lifted his head from his drinking, as cattle do,
And looked at me vaguely, as drinking cattle do,
And flickered his two-forked tongue from his lips, and mused a moment,
And stooped and drank a little more,
Being earth-brown, earth-golden from the burning bowels of the earth
On the day of Sicilian July, with Etna smoking.
The voice of my education said to me
He must be killed,
For in Sicily the black, black snakes are innocent, the gold are venomous.

And voices in me said, If you were a man
You would take a stick and break him now, and finish him off.

But must I confess how I liked him,
How glad I was he had come like a guest in quiet, to drink at my water-trough
And depart peaceful, pacified, and thankless,
Into the burning bowels of this earth?

Was it cowardice, that I dared not kill him?
Was it perversity, that I longed to talk to him?
Was it humility, to feel so honoured?
I felt so honoured.

And yet those voices:
If you were not afraid, you would kill him!

And truly I was afraid, I was most afraid,
But even so, honoured still more
That he should seek my hospitality
From out the dark door of the secret earth.

He drank enough
And lifted his head, dreamily, as one who has drunken,
And flickered his tongue like a forked night on the air, so black,
Seeming to lick his lips,
And looked around like a god, unseeing, into the air,
And slowly turned his head,
And slowly, very slowly, as if thrice adream,
Proceeded to draw his slow length curving round
And climb again the broken bank of my wall-face.

And as he put his head into that dreadful hole,
And as he slowly drew up, snake-easing his shoulders, and entered farther,
A sort of horror, a sort of protest against his withdrawing into that horrid black hole,
Deliberately going into the blackness, and slowly drawing himself after,
Overcame me now his back was turned.

I looked round, I put down my pitcher,
I picked up a clumsy log
And threw it at the water-trough with a clatter.

I think it did not hit him,
But suddenly that part of him that was left behind convulsed in undignified haste.
Writhed like lightning, and was gone
Into the black hole, the earth-lipped fissure in the wall-front,
At which, in the intense still noon, I stared with fascination.

And immediately I regretted it.
I thought how paltry, how vulgar, what a mean act!
I despised myself and the voices of my accursed human education.

And I thought of the albatross
And I wished he would come back, my snake.

For he seemed to me again like a king,
Like a king in exile, uncrowned in the underworld
Now due to be crowned again.

And so, I missed my chance with one of the lords
Of life.
And I have something to expiate:
A pettiness.
