“The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.”—Carl Jung (via nirvikalpa)
“The Chicago Clean Power Coalition, announces a major victory for the people of Chicago! After 2 1/2 years of continuous organizing by grassroots organizations and environmental groups, Midwest Generation, owner and operator of Fisk and Crawford coal plants on the city’s southwest side has agreed to permanently retire these corporate polluters - the largest in the city of Chicago and two of the oldest and dirtiest coal plants in the country.
Under the terms of an agreement signed between Midwest Generation, the City of Chicago and the Chicago Clean Power Coalition, the Fisk power plant in Pilsen will shut down in 2012, while the Crawford plant in Little Village will be closed in in 2014. These plants are responsible for more than 42 premature deaths each year, and have been targeted by community groups and environmental and heath organizations for more than ten years! It’s time for clean power Chicago.”

Schizophrenia is just a catch-all term for forms of mental behavior that we don’t understand. In the 19th century, there was a term “melancholia”, which we would now call bipolar depression, so forth and so on. But all forms of sadness, unhappiness, maladaptation, so forth…
“The government tells us how to feel, how to act, and how we should live our lives. We will never feel good or fulfilled with our lives if someone is telling us how to live it. It’s very sad, we must wake up. Our minds, souls, and bodies have been enslaved with religion, television and repetition. We must free our souls and find the true beauty of life.”—Alan Watts (via disconnectedreality)

“Whilst we think, our brain changes, and, like the aurora borealis, its whole internal equilibrium shifts with every pulse of change … from one relative state of equilibrium to another, like the gyrations of a kaleidoscope”—William James (via moreofamore)
“Saturn is a source of intense radio emissions. The radio waves are closely related to the auroras near the poles of the planet. These auroras are similar to Earth’s northern and southern lights. The Cassini spacecraft began detecting these radio emissions in April 2002 when Cassini was 2.5 astronomical units from the planet using the Cassini Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS)instrument. The RPWS has now provided the first high resolution observations of these emissions that show an amazing array of variations in frequency and time. The complex radio spectrum with rising and falling tones is very similar to Earth’s auroral radio emissions. These structures indicate that there are numerous small radio sources moving along magnetic field lines threading the auroral region.”
