more open-minded despite having made many judgement errors that conventional thinking andrepparttar funding process have contributed to in a big way. We are constantly findingrepparttar 149114 facts and opinions of what academia calls mavericks are able to enlightenrepparttar 149115 past in all disciplines of anthropology and archaeology. Gimbutas and Campbell have followed a long line of independent thought from Humboldt and Hawkes through Petrie and Marshack. Inrepparttar 149116 end they have brought mythology torepparttar 149117 foreground throughrepparttar 149118 use of techniques likerepparttar 149119 space photos and now we have solid state chemistry and genetics to blaze new trails. There is still a lot of small-minded provincial 'pissing-contests' betweenrepparttar 149120 differing disciplines but there are a lot of exciting things being achieved. The cases of researchers spending up to twenty years working and living with natives, who tell them what they want to hear because they are gracious and kind, are numerous. (6) The value systems of our researchers who want to position themselves andrepparttar 149121 Euro-Centric financial backers as more civilized are rife inrepparttar 149122 annals of what some say is far from a science.

When a native group being held under academic scrutiny and subject to logical linear mindsets actually is able to educaterepparttar 149123 'experts' about their culture it isrepparttar 149124 exception. Often such things are not funded becauserepparttar 149125 data doesn't 'fit'repparttar 149126 prevailing literature. Carlos Castaneda was an anthropologist from UCLA who made a major breakthrough on his own. Even his debunkers have to admit he has brought a great deal of insight torepparttar 149127 field as a whole. Dr. Wayne Dyer owes a great deal ofrepparttar 149128 thought involved in his You'll See it, When You Believe It! torepparttar 149129 work of Carlos Castaneda and his Toltec mentor Don Juan. It is possible that all of our research into human behavior has more to learn than we think we already know. That might mean we are wrong about many key things. One ofrepparttar 149130 most obvious things that our cultural bias foists uponrepparttar 149131 data isrepparttar 149132 relative importance we place on intellect rather than spirit.

L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. Blows the Whistle

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

Continued from page 1

Talk about early life trauma and issues of a psychological nature! L. Ron Jr. is not going into a lot of detail here and he is speaking to people who couldn't relate torepparttar practices involved. So when he speaks of Satan he is using something thatrepparttar 148846 reader might relate to. The real spirit involved is called Babalon and isrepparttar 148847 feminine aspect of God that goes by many names back to Isis.

The truth ofrepparttar 148848 matter is that such spiritual force is not understood by anyone who engages in such practices and probably no one at all, who is alive on this earth. Representational deities to describe natural forces have beenrepparttar 148849 object of great hallucinatory wizardry throughoutrepparttar 148850 ages. The evocation of spirits is part of many, and indeed all religions. I have personally engaged in exorcisms with no need of such imagery and purely with awareness of physiological psychic points that tie in with acupuncture. The Catholic highly trained exorcists are even worse atrepparttar 148851 matter of projecting evil imagery of a hallucinatory nature. This practice has much to do with what Crowley says ties him in with Levi and is related to willing partners allowing another soul to take over their body. I do have more to tie this in with Masons and Rosicrucians of a personal nature as well. They also say 'immaculate conception' but it is throughrepparttar 148852 practitioner or 'working partner' thatrepparttar 148853 spirit acts. The Wiccans call this 'Drawing Downrepparttar 148854 Moon' and I can assure you that some of these sorcerers are simply using this practice for purely personal sexual power needs. I have gone into a painful event in my life relating to a love of mine who was so used by a supposed friend engaging inrepparttar 148855 use of this ritual.
