The Principles of Psychology is an 1890 book about psychology by William James, an American philosopher and psychologist who trained to be a physician before going into psychology. There are four methods from James' book: stream of consciousness (James' most famous psychological metaphor); emotion (later known as the James–Lange theory); habit (human habits are constantly formed to achieve certain results); and will (through James' personal experiences in life).


Nineteenth-century experimental results

The openings of The Principles of Psychology presented what was known at the time of writing about the localization of functions in the brain: how each sense seemed to have a neural center to which it reported and how varied bodily motions have their sources in other centers.
The particular hypotheses and observations on which James relied are now very dated, but the broadest conclusion to which his material leads is still valid, which was that the functions of the "lower centers" (beneath the cerebrum) become increasingly specialized as one moves from reptiles, through ever more intelligent mammals, to inhumans while the functions of the cerebrum itself become increasingly flexible and less localized as one moves along the same continuum.
James also discussed experiments on illusions (optical, auditory, etc.) and offered a physiological explanation for many of them, including that "the brain reacts by paths which previous experiences have worn, and makes us usually perceive the probable thing, i.e. the thing by which on previous occasions the reaction was most frequently aroused." Illusions are thus a special case of the phenomenon of habit.


The Principles of Psychology covered a large number of topics, but some topics stand out as being more useful and applicable than others, particularly the sections on stream of consciousness, emotion, habit, and will.

Stream of consciousness

Stream of consciousness is arguably James' most famous psychological metaphor.[1] He argued that human thought can be characterized as a flowing stream, which was an innovative concept at the time due to the prior argument being that human thought was more so like a distinct chain. He also believed that humans can never experience exactly the same thought or idea more than once. In addition to this, he viewed consciousness as completely continuous.

Emotion

James introduced a new theory of emotion (later known as the James–Lange theory), which argued that an emotion is instead the consequence rather than the cause of the bodily experiences associated with its expression.[1] In other words, a stimulus causes a physical response and an emotion follows the response. This theory has received criticism throughout the years since its introduction, but regardless, it still has its merits.

Habit

Human habits are constantly formed to achieve certain results because of ones strong feelings of wanting or wishing for something. James emphasized the importance and power of human habit and proceeded to draw a conclusion. James noted that the laws of habit formation are unbiased, habits are capable of causing either good or bad actions. And once either a good or bad habit has begun to be established, it is very difficult to change.[1]

Will

Will is the final chapter of The Principles of Psychology, which was through James' own personal experiences in life. There was one question that troubled James during his crisis, which was whether or not free will existed.[1] "The most essential achievement of the will,... when it is most 'voluntary', is to attend to a difficult object and hold it fast before the mind..." Effort of attention is thus the essential phenomenon of will."[1]
Here, Robert Anton Wilson discusses the sneaky trickery of film editing used in Orson Welles' film, F For Fake. The same editing techniques were used in movies like Citizen Kane and Chimes At Midnight, revealing the fine line that can be drawn between art and lies, which is referenced by Welles himself in F For Fake but in a more enigmatic way. At any rate, the sheer ingenuity of the tricks used by Welles as described here is something to be appreciated in its own right.

H.H. Karmapa (法王): We believe that everyday, somewhere one universe is ending and another one is beginning, but it's not like there is a judgement day, it's a little bit different.




Morgan Freeman (摩根): So actually what your saying is what I think is that there is no end only change, one thing ends another begins.

Morgan Freeman (ending narration): When you meet someone like His Holiness Kamarpa, I guess the thing that stands out the most is his humility, the Kamarpa doesn't give you the impression that, he thinks of himself as greater than you, higher than you or better in any way than you. He's here like the rest of us on this quest trying to understand why we're here, seeking to unveil the truth, seeking enlightenment.





DeLonge is no mere rock star UFO hobbyist (there are hundreds of those), he's somehow gotten mixed up with some major power players behind the scenes. The Sekret Machines project is due to kick off with a novel, Chasing Shadows (note the Sr-71, which Gordon and I discussed at length on his podcast):

“I think there are going to be a lot of people who aren’t going to believe it. They won’t take a minute to read some of the material. They’ll hear ‘Oh, Tom’s doing some alien, flying saucer thing,'” DeLonge said in a new interview with GQ. “That’s not what this is. This is a big deal.” 
According to DeLonge, Chasing Shadows is fiction, but only partly: the novel invents characters to introduce purportedly true stories, like UFO sightings and rumored Nazi super-weapon and/or antigravity device Die Glocke. Why write fiction? The intent, DeLonge said, is to gently ease readers into ideas they might find hard to believe: “The enormity of what’s being told might hit people in a weird way if it was just laid on their lap all at once,” he explained.

By Tom DeLonge and NY Times Bestselling Author AJ Hartley.

For those who know… that something is going on…

The witnesses are legion, scattered across the world and dotted through history, people who looked up and saw something impossible lighting up the night sky. What those objects were, where they came from, and who—or what—might be inside them is the subject of fierce debate and equally fierce mockery, so that most who glimpsed them came to wish they hadn’t.

Most, but not everyone.

Among those who know what they’ve seen, and—like the toll of a bell that can’t be unrung—are forever changed by it, are a pilot, an heiress, a journalist, and a prisoner of war. From the waning days of the 20th century’s final great war to the fraught fields of Afghanistan to the otherworldly secrets hidden amid Nevada’s dusty neverlands—the truth that is out there will propel each of them into a labyrinth of otherworldly technology and the competing aims of those who might seek to prevent—or harness—these beings of unfathomable power. Because, as it turns out, we are not the only ones who can invent and build…and destroy.

Featuring actual events and other truths drawn from sources within the military and intelligence community, Tom DeLonge and A.J. Hartley offer a tale at once terrifying, fantastical, and perhaps all too real. Though it is, of course, a work of… fiction?

Digital tech was supposed to usher in an age of prosperity, but so far it has put industrial capitalism on steroids.

Social networks surrender their missions to data mining, and banks abandon investing for algorithms- all to stoke growth.

Startups sell for billions but destroy more jobs and markets than they create.

Immortalized is the sixth studio album by American heavy metal band Disturbed. The album was released on August 21, 2015 through Reprise Records, and is Disturbed's first studio album since Asylum (2010), marking the longest gap between two studio albums in their career. It is also Disturbed's first album since 2002's Believe to receive a Parental Advisory sticker, although studio albums released in the interim have contained some profanity.

This highly fascinating compilation features photos of alleged alien species. 

 According to whistleblower and former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer, there are alien races on Earth. 
Leaked military guides and other sources inform us that aliens have been living on planet Earth before the human race came to be. 

Discover the wealth of other intelligent life in the Universe and from nearby star systems (e.g. Alpha Draconis, Zeta Reticula, Pleiades, etc.). 

Whether mammalian, reptilian, amphibian or insectoid, there is a vast array of life forms awaiting our contact


  



Do you believe in Extraterrestrial Intelligence? What about the idea that not only do they exist, but that they are in contact with the Earth currently? 

All of the evidence I’ve seen has pointed to this being true, and if you have seen some of the information out there, I’m sure this idea doesn’t come as being far fetched to you.  This article will expose the undercover story, and introduce you to the species you can make direct contact with right now.

Humans have already discovered 2,000 exoplanets in our Universe, with over 500 discovered this year alone. These planets are potentially suitable for life and have the right conditions to support it, including perhaps oxygen, carbon, and water.

Our continued study of space has only led us to realize that it is very likely that the Universe is absolutely teeming with life, especially when you take into account that there are an estimated 100 billion galaxies in our Universe.
 Some people may think it’s impossible that aliens would be able to exist, and doubly impossible that they would be able to travel light years to visit us.  But think about this:

Our earth is only 4 billion years old in a universe that is 14 billion years old.  What could a species learn, create, and do that has a 2 or 3 billion year head start on us?

Proven contact

Humans who act as Spiritual Channels have been pushing up against mainstream consensus for years, sharing that they have directly had contact with extraterrestrials.  

Abductees, military personnel, whistleblowers, even reputable scientists have been thoroughly tested by a vast range of neurologists, hypnotists, psychologists, etc., proving undisputedly that these people have had contact with ETs, some of which is reported to be both positive and negative.

If this is coming as news to you, here is the former Minister of National Defense of Canada Paul Hellyer giving full disclosure within parliament about the UFO coverup stories and ET contacts we have made.  He explains in front of a room of government officials that there are over 80 species of aliens we are aware of, and 4 of them in particular that we have made direct contact with on earth:
 It is believed that all of the ones who have contacted us so far are benevolent and want to help us. Some of these beings may appear odd or paranormal in nature to us, and that from what I understand it’s because it is hard for us to fully understand their consciousness, intelligence and the way they interface with reality.

Not to mention, that their existence alone shifts our understanding of the Universe and our place within it so dramatically that it is very natural for us to be inclined to reject that which is so unfamiliar and challenging to us.  I also know this is a highly controversial conversation to be starting, but the world needs to know this information.

I do believe the time has to  begin to consciously interact with these beings, to create a new relationship with them and open the bridge of communication. 

I have experienced this firsthand myself, and many others have as well. I truly believe it’s part of our future destiny as a species, and is an organic part of maturing into being an intelligent, loving and compassionate planet.

So without further adieu, here are the 5 main ETs that are in contact with earth.  Please keep in mind this information is not being made up.  This is coming from the high levels of government and military personnel, scientists, and first-hand contacts.










 


How to contact these beings

I recommend you create a time to meditate each day at the exact same time. Cleanse your space, get comfortable and take a few deep breaths.  

Create an invocation to welcome them into your space. And then just meditate… go quiet & listen. Perhaps ask a question and see what kind of responses you get.

As Max Plank once said, the number of minds in the universe is one. These beings have thousands and millions of years of evolution on us, so things like telepathy, ESP, and physic transmission are as easy for them as sending a radio signal is for us.

The ancients knew this

ET visitations have been recorded for thousands of  years, and ALL ancient cultures talk about the “gods” that would “come down from the sky” with a bright light and given them knowledge, tools, technology and culture. 

These beings are usually depicted having shiny skin or wearing some kind of space gear, and have generally have large heads and wide large eyes.

Chariots of the Gods is a wonderful read summarizing the vast amount of evidence that ancient man was visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings and they they created art, cave paintings, and sculptures of these distant visitors to describe the experiences they had of them.

These are the 5 main races in contact with earth. Again, I would like to stress that this is not New Age mumbo jumbo. This information comes from the highest levels of the military industrial complex, government, and first hand contacts.

There are many more in contact with us right now, and many more who desire to contact us.  Maybe they are waiting for us to open our minds and our hearts, let go of our greed and pride, grow up a bit, and make more spiritual progress before they make their presence known to the whole world.

If you ever hit any blocks or get stuck, it’s likely you are dealing with resistance. Resistance can easily block us from tuning in or focusing our intentions. 

It’s important you transform your relationship with resistance if you are looking to better your life.

“A vacationing family encounters an alien threat in this pulse-pounding thriller based on the very real Brown Mountain Lights.
Locals have heard stories of lights in the sky over Brown Mountain for over 800 years, dating back to the Cherokee and Catawba Indians. Sighting of the lights are usually accompanied by disappearances, and many have suspected they are UFOs.
While on a camping trip in the remote region, youngest son Riley, sees mysterious lights in the night sky, which he is able to record on his hand held video camera. Due to his autism, Riley uses a camera to narrow in his view of the world which otherwise can overwhelm him, and therefore documents his family’s vacation. The film is the recovered footage from the boy’s camera.
After seeing these lights, the trip takes an ill fated turn.
Directed by Matty Beckerman and produced by Lawrence Bender (Inglourious Basterds, Pulp Fiction) and Mike Fleiss (Hostel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Bachelor), along with Beckerman himself and his wife Cathy under their production shingle, BIGPICTURE. It was written by Robert Lewis based on a story by Beckerman, and Executive Produced by Exclusive Media’s Guy East and Alex Brunner (The Woman In Black, Rush, The Quiet Ones).

The Great Dictator's Speech

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone - if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.
Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost....
 The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men - cries out for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.
To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. .....
Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” - not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.
Then - in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

Media theorist and author Douglas Rushkoff asks the audience at PSFK 2015 to dispute the technological marketplace as it exists today. There’s a role reversal that’s happening with our technologies that Rushkoff argues render us more anti-social rather than enable us to be better communicators.
The current experience of delivering and receiving a live presentation is radically different from that experience in the past. When TED first originated, the speakers were not supposed to prepare their ideas but rather operate on-the-fly. Adversely, an audience today will type frantically from their computer screens, recording every word or concept of a carefully curated speech.

A fan wants to how close an alien civilization would have to be to discover Earth, using the same level of technology we have here. Extraordinarily close, at least according to what guest host Bill Nye the Science Guy learned in his astronomy class taught by Carl Sagan.
