I totally recommend the following books: RA Salvatore - Dark Elf Trilogy (see stumbleupon blog for quotes), Joseph O'Connor & John Seymour - NLP Psychological skills for understanding and influencing people (excellent),
PJ Hansen - Hypnosis in practice (ok). I read a book on 'provocative therapy' but didn't like that much, crazy dutch people :p.
I'm still reading Graham Hancock's Supernatural which is mindbogglingly awesome and I'm (probably) gonna start reading (all of) the following books:
Deepak Chopra - Buddha, Carl Jung - Redmeption in Alchemy, Carl Jung - Western Consciousness & Eastern Insight,
Lewis Carroll - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Philip K. Dick - Ubik
and H. Berghs - An introduction to the thinknig of E. Levinas, L. Wittgenstein, A. Whitehead, J. Habermas.
If you want more dedroidify related content I'm gonna have to refer you to my Stumbleupon blog

I'm way too busy in the real world to keep up with my internet life

Tad James lays out his Timeline Therapy in this article, but what's most interesting is the Prime Directives of the Unconscious Mind that he compiled from the Hawaiian Huna and NLP & hypnosis work.
If we know how our unconscious works, we can understand it better and get more in rapport with it. People who are in rapport with their unconscious mind have the world at their fingertips.
I highly recommend the books or audiobooks on Huna and Deep Trance Phenomena by Tad James.

Chris: Where am I? Grandpa? What are you doing here?
Grandpa: Chris, welcome to the Skull and Bones society. This is where the most powerful men in the world are groomed for their futures. Every president, every CEO, every douchebag named Ryan Seacrest. The Skull and Bones society has been a part of my family for decades and we want you to become a member.
Chris: Really? Wow cool!
Grandpa: Excellent! You get your own stock portfolio, a percentage of the 9/11 victims fund, and the best medical care on the planet, you'll be kept as healthy as a horse!
There are so many freaking blog items today it's ridiculous
TAKE PLENTY OF STIMULANTS. The old standards of caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and cola will continue to do the job just fine.
AVOID "WOO-WOO" PRACTICES. Ignore the evidence suggesting that meditation, yoga, deep breathing, and/or mental imaging help to reduce stress. The Protestant work ethic is good for everyone, Protestant or not.
GET RID OF YOUR SOCIAL SUPPORT SYSTEM. Let the few friends who are willing to tolerate you know that concern yourself with friendships only if you have time, and you never have time. If a few people persist in trying to be your friend, avoid them.
PERSONALIZE ALL CRITICISM. Anyone who criticizes any aspect of your work, family, dog, house, or car is mounting a personal attack. Don't take time to listen, be offended, then return the attack!
THROW OUT YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR. Staying stressed is no laughing matter, and it shouldn't be treated as one.
MALES AND FEMALES ALIKE - BE MACHO. Never ever ask for help, and if you want it done right, do it yourself!
BECOME A WORKAHOLIC. Put work before everything else, and be sure to take work home evenings and weekends. Keep reminding yourself that vacations are for sissies.
DISCARD GOOD TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS. Schedule in more activities every day than you can possibly get done and then worry about it all whenever you get a chance.
PROCRASTINATE. Putting things off to the last second always produces a marvelous amount of stress.
WORRY ABOUT THINGS YOU CAN'T CONTROL. Worry about the stock market, earthquakes, the approaching Ice Age, you know, all the big issues.
BECOME NOT ONLY A PERFECTIONIST BUT SET IMPOSSIBLY HIGH STANDARDS ...and either beat yourself up, or ... feel guilty, depressed, discouraged, and/or inadequate when you don't meet them.
Stop giving me that pop-up ad for classmates.com ! There's a reason you don't talk to people for 25 years. Because you don't particularly like them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the football team is doing these days . . mowing my lawn.
Don't eat anything that's served to you out a window unless you're a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was found in a bowl of Wendy's chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What did you expect it to contain? Trout?
Stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for these kids: lucky bastards.
If you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards, you're a dope. If you're a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols. If you're a grown man, they're pictures of men.
Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care about your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done.
There's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole aisle of this crap at the supermarket, water, but without that watery taste. Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want flavored water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That's your flavored water.
Stop screwing with old people. Target is introducing a redesigned pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, his ass will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved the Social Security crisis.
The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low, and one NutraSweet," ooh, you're a huge asshole.
I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card, entering my PIN number, pressing "Enter," verifying the amount, deciding, no, I don't want cash back, and pressing "Enter" again, the kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my Almond Joy.
Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything spiritual, you were praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high.
Competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the U.S. Open of Competitive Eating, because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned exciting. What's next, competitive farting? Oh wait. They're already doing that. It's called "The Howard Stern Show."
I don't need a bigger mega M&Ms If I'm extra hungry for M&Ms, I'll go nuts and eat two.
If you're going to insist on making movies based on crappy, old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the Cineplex a remote so we can see what's playing on the other screens. Let's remember the reason something was a television show in the first place is that the idea wasn't good enough to be a movie.
No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting.
No more bathroom attendants. After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just had sex with George Michael. I can't even tell if he's supposed to be there, or just some freak with a fetish. I don't want to be on your web cam, dude. I just want to wash my hands.
When I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to know in months. "27 Months." "He's two," will do just fine. He's not a cheese. And I didn't really care in the first place.
If you ever hope to be a credible adult and want a job that pays better than minimum wage, then for God's sake don't pierce or tattoo every available piece of flesh. If so, then plan your future around saying" Do you want fries with that?"
Since when is an ignorant fucking border guard an expert in psychotherapy? Since when is google fucking used as a deterrent?
Fingerprints for FBI:
He was told to sit down on a folding chair and for hours he wondered where this was going. He checked his watch and thought hopelessly of his friend who was about to land at the Seattle airport. Three hours later, the official motioned him into a small, barren room with an American flag. He was sitting on one side and Feldmar was on the other. The official said that under the Homeland Security Act, Feldmar was being denied entry due to "narcotics" use. LSD is not a narcotic substance, Feldmar tried to explain, but an entheogen. The guard wasn't interested in technicalities. He asked for a statement from Feldmar admitting to having used LSD and he fingerprinted Feldmar for an FBI file.
Then Feldmar disbelievingly listened as he learned that he was being barred from ever entering the United States again. The officer told him he could apply to the Department of Homeland Security for a waiver, if he wished, and gave him a package, with the forms.
The border guard then escorted him to his car and made sure he did a U-turn and went back to Canada.
ANOTHER REASON WHY I'D NEVER VISIT THE US OR UK ANYMORE
BECAUSE THEY HAVE BECOME LIKE GERMANY AND ITALY DURING WW2,
ONLY A WHOLE LOT FUCKING DUMBER!
(if you're American/English and take offense, be my guest, maybe it'll make you fucking do something about it)
Intelligent design is hilarious, though taking darwin's view of evolution so seriously after a
century isn't exactly intelligent either. Fundamentalist materialism is funnier than fundamentalist religion,
cause the materialists actually think they're being rational... :p Time to explore
Only in American media would an article be named so fucking dumb. You'd think they'd grasp the concept of "DUH" by now... as long as you bitch and whine about the freaking obvious, no thought provoking stuff needs to be thrown out there. Thank you Rupert Murdoch (who owns nat geo) for replacing journalism with what you think is entertainment...
As stumbler Mikeize nicely put it: The only ones who claim to be finding proof of it are those who ALREADY believe in it = Not sound science.
There's more to evolution, than a little DNA. I wasn't gonna say anything about evolution not
being a blind, mechanical process in a meaningless universe, but they made it too easy :p
Besides human conscious evolution with meditation and other mind-expanding pracitices... One word baby: Giraffes (see next pic)
"It's about how the future has as much to do with the present as the past does. Giraffes can only have come from the future. There's no way evolution in the past would have let something that defenseless and impractical live for 15 minutes." Kilgore Trout (Kurt Vonnegut) lol
With humanity coming up fast on 2012, publishers are helping readers gear up and count down to this
mysterious — some even call it apocalyptic — date that ancient Mayan societies were anticipating
thousands of years ago.
Since November, at least three new books on 2012 have arrived in mainstream bookstores. A fourth
is due this fall. Each arrives in the wake of the 2006 success of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl,
which has been selling thousands of copies a month since its release in May and counts more than 40,000
in print. The books also build on popular interest in the Maya, fueled in part by Mel Gibson's December
2006 film about Mayan civilization, Apocalpyto.
Authors disagree about what humankind should expect on Dec. 21, 2012, when the Maya's "Long Count"
calendar marks the end of a 5,126-year era.
Journalist Lawrence Joseph forecasts widespread catastrophe in Apocalypse 2012: A Scientific Investigation
Into Civilization's End. Spiritual healer Andrew Smith predicts a restoration of a "true balance between
Divine Feminine and Masculine" in The Revolution of 2012: Vol. 1, The Preparation. In 2012,
Daniel Pinchbeck anticipates a "change in the nature of consciousness," assisted by indigenous
insights and psychedelic drug use.
The buildup to 2012 echoes excitement and fear expressed on the eve of the new millennium, popularly
known as Y2K, though on a smaller scale, says Lynn Garrett, senior religion editor at Publishers Weekly.
She says publishers seem to be courting readers who believe humanity is creating its own ecological
disasters and desperately needs ancient indigenous wisdom.
"The convergence I see here is the apocalyptic expectations, if you will, along with the fact
that the environment is in the front of many people's minds these days," Garrett says. "Part of
the appeal of these earth religions is that notion that we need to reconnect with the Earth in
order to save ourselves." here comes the funny part:
But scholars are bristling at attempts to link the ancient Maya with trends in contemporary
spirituality. Maya civilization, known for advanced writing, mathematics and astronomy,
flourished for centuries in Mesoamerica, especially between A.D. 300 and 900. Its Long Count
calendar, which was discontinued under Spanish colonization, tracks more than 5,000 years,
then resets at year zero.
"For the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make it to the end of a whole cycle," says
Sandra Noble, executive director of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies in
Crystal River, Fla. To render Dec. 21, 2012, as a doomsday or moment of cosmic shifting, she says,
is "a complete fabrication and a chance for a lot of people to cash in." (Yes but if it was
true the careers of these so called 'scholars' would be discredited and THEY wouldn't be able to cash
in anymore...) Part of the 2012 mystique stems from the stars. On the winter solstice in 2012, the sun will
be aligned with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years. This means
that "whatever energy typically streams to Earth from the center of the Milky Way will indeed be disrupted
on 12/21/12 at 11:11 p.m. Universal Time," Joseph writes.
But scholars doubt the ancient Maya extrapolated great meaning from anticipating the alignment
— if they were even aware of what the configuration would be. Astronomers generally agree that
"it would be impossible the Maya themselves would have known that," says Susan Milbrath, a Maya
archaeoastronomer and a curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History. What's more, she says, "we
have no record or knowledge that they would think the world would come to an end at that point."
University of Florida anthropologist Susan Gillespie says the 2012 phenomenon comes "from media and
from other people making use of the Maya past to fulfill agendas that are really their own."

How hypnosis got eclipsed in psychology
Another shameful aspect of psychology's history
The young Sigmund Freud studied with Liebault and Bernheim at the Nancy School and initially used hypnosis in his practice. In the end, Freud stopped using hypnosis. The reason declared publicly was that a young female patient had jumped up and kissed him. Freud professed to be shocked and concluded that hypnosis was far too volatile to use. The little known history of hypnosis records a different reason why Freud stopped using hypnosis: his cocaine usage had ruined his gums, and his false teeth did not fit well, causing him not to speak well enough to induce trance easily.
In competition with an excellent hypnotist named Breuer, Freud
invented 'talking therapy.' Freud said that his talking therapy would not be a therapy for the poor. It would take 100 to 300 hours to effect a cure.
His talking therapy became psychoanalysis and this changed the history of European psychology. Freudian psychoanalysis became the rage in psychology and it became inappropriate to use any other techniques. Consequently, hypnosis was eclipsed.
From Tad James' Hypnosis: A Comprehensive Guide: Producing Deep Trance Phenomena
"We can all see how other people's BS (belief system or bullshit :p) makes them blind and "stupid" at times,
but we find it very hard to noticehow our own BS is doing the same to us. This is what anthropologists call
'acculturalization.' Following Gurdjieff, I prefer to call it hypnosis... Every politician knows how to
induce hypnosis, and very damned few peple on the whole planet know how to de-hypnotize themselves.
The world is not governed by facts or logic. It is governed by BS (belief systems)."

"I don't mind being accused of being an 'escapist.' On a planet that increasingly resembles one huge
Maximum Security prison, the only intelligent choice is to plan a jail break."

"If one wants to recognize effortlessly the essense of politics, let one reflect upon the fact that it was a

more wonderful Cosmic Trigger 2 updates later...
First thing we'd climb a tree and maybe then we'd talk
Or sit silently and listen to our thoughts
With illusions of someday casting a golden light
No dress rehearsal, this is our life
I finished Cosmic Trigger 2: Down to Earth and it fucking rules even more than you expect
or can fathom. What follows (will follow, oops :p) is a shitload of updates from the book that will be sprinkled around the site.
"A free government with an uncontrolled power of military conscription is the most ridiculous and
abominable contradiction and nonsense that ever entered into the head of man."
Daniel Webster, Speech in the House of Representatives, January 14 1814.
"My thesis held that language and hypnosis form the foundation on which humans create world of consciousness
and of fantasy which no other animals seem able to achieve."
Robert Anton Wilson
"Animals only suffer physical pain; humans suffer both physical pain and an additional psychological pain
from the thought (verbal construct), 'I should not have to suffer this.' This causes us to struggle
for social progress, better medicine etc. but it also causes us to feel the same bitter sense of 'injustice'
or 'wrongness' when there is nothing concretely that can be done to ease the pain. In short, without language
we'd have less suffering and no progress."
Robert Anton Wilson
There were terrorist drills going on for the exact thing that happened, just like on 9/11
On 7/7 steel from the subway floor was rising upwards (how can a backpack do that?)
the cameras were supposedly out of order but were not
the Brazilian man that was shot was said to have run with wires sticking out his thick jacket, while he was actually executed on the subway itself in a light denim jacket without wires
The media and the governments still haven't decided how exactly to spell Al-Qaida, which is fitting, cause how DO you spell a phantom menace's name that doesn't really exist?
People are fucking gullible and allow this shit to happen and are happy to give up civil liberties for... freedom
"It's not a therapy group, it's a training session - if you want to go to therapy well, we can recommend
some therapists who are very reliable, why some of their clients have seen them for 20 and 30 years." :p

"Tension is thought, thought is tension."
I decided I'd finally do the exercises in Hyatt's crazy ass book
Undoing yourself with energized meditation and other devices,
I read in the preface that Israel Regardie says that Osho's Chaotic Meditation (which is mentioned
later in this post, and updated on Osho's page) is what comes closest
to Hyatt's methods so why not test that respected opinion. It's less exhausting and muscle straining than
Kundalini Yoga & the Chaotic meditation (these are all circuit 6 level practices btw).
The book is also one of the funniest thought provoking bitchslapping mindfucking pieces of literature you
could ever hope to find.
Yogani's mantra meditation and pranayama is great for cultivating samadhi but
I don't think a mantra meditation will ever lead to enlightenment and with all the freaking add-ons every
so much time too... so let's up the ante, keep up with the AYP routine and go up a circuit nonetheless.
This will be a time of interesting pacing as I'm doing Reiki, Tibetan Yoga, running and working out and
all kinds of other stuff like NLP and Hypnosis aswell.
I'm also working on several new pages I promised before but it could take a while before they finally make it online.
Oh and did I mention I'm going to Thailand in June? Because I am ;p

"Mind is very serious, and meditation is absolutely nonserious. When I say this you may be bewildered, because people
go on talking about meditation very seriously. But meditation is not a serious thing. It is just like play. Nonserious.
Sincere, but nonserious. It is not something like work; it is more like play. Play is not an activity. Even
when it is active, it is not an activity. Play is just pleasure. The activity is not going anywhere; it is not
motivated. Rather, it is just pure, flowing energy.
But it is difficult, because we are so involved in activity. We have always been so active that activity has
become a deep-rooted obsession. Even while asleep we are active. Even when we are thinking about relaxing we are active.
We even make relaxation an activity; we make an effort to relax. This is absurd! But it happens because of the
robotlike habits of the mind.
So what to do? Only nonactivity leads you to your inner center, but the mind cannot conceive of how to be nonactive. So what to
Sharm is a great hypnosis program that lets you compose
your own hypnosis tracks, it has sessions on over 15 subjects with multiple options for each. You can edit those
or record your own and choose which binaural beats or suggestions to use, and much moore. It's quite excellent!
I substituted my Holosync Awakening Prologue (which is part of a continues and expensive program), which I tried for
a week and a half and was not serving me well at all, the dumbass bells made my thoughts race and were very distracting - I substituted it with a
alpha intro to long theta back to alpha outro mp3 with ambient sounds and nature sounds from Sharm and was very happy
to find my samadhi (stilness) back in meditation and my wonderful 'zone' feeling afterwards meditation.
I've also tried a delta waves session which expectedly made me fall asleep right away for a nice nap!
Today's stuff will all become pages sooner or later:
The short path by Padmasambhava
1. Reading of a great number of books of different religions and
philosophies. Listening to many sages and teachers who adhere
to many different theories. Scientifically experiencing and
trying out several different methods.
2. Choosing one from all investigated religions and philosophies
and letting go of the others, as an eagle chooses one sheep
from a herd as its prey.
3. Live in a simple manner, humble in one's way of acting;
not trying to be remarkable or seeming important in the eyes
of the world, but raising one's spirit high above all
worldly power and fame after this seemingly unimportance.
4. Indifference toward everything. Behaving as a dog or pig who
eats what happens to be around. Making no choice between the
occuring things. Making no effort whatsoever to receive or
avoid something; with equality accepting everything that
happens, richess or poverty, praise or loathing, stopping
to distinguish between piety and impiety, honor or shame,
good and evil. Never be sad, or have sorrow about done
matters and on the other hand never being happy or proud
about what one has accomplished.
5. Observing conflicting opinions and different manifestations
of activity with complete equality and disattachement.
Understanding that these are unavoidably confined in the
unique manner of acting of each individual. Understanding all
of this and remaining serene. Overseeing the world as someone
looking down from the highest mountain on the valleys and lesser
mountain tops around them.
6. The sixth stadium cannot be described. It corresponds with
the realisation of emptiness, that in Lamaistic terminology
stands for Inexpressible Reality.
I recently got this book from a friend Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth
by Peter Kelder, I read it in two days and found it very interesting. Not because I want or need
to look more youthful (quite the opposite lol :p) but the energy rejuvenation aspect really interested me.
The link above
contains all 5 exercises with an animated image, it's a quick yoga routine which is more easy and fun to do than
any Hatha Yoga routine I've come across.
I then ran into this wiki article which
is very skeptical of the exercises and their origins. I think it doesn't hurt to say that everyone needs to be
very skeptical about all wiki articles and their origins aswell lol as a lot of articles seem to be composed by
amateurs who know just a fraction of what the hell they're typing about. So here's a rebuttal of all the reasons
they listed why these exercises are fiction.
1. There are five chakras in Tibetan medicine, not seven chakras.
So what, Kelder could have just edited the number of chakras to the more western used view.
2. Tibetan medicine considers health to be a balance of five elements, not the speeding up of seven vortices.
Generalizing Tibetan medicine, or anything is freaking stupid
3. Yoga in Tibet never included whirling.
Shamanism and Sufism (whirling) are the basis of most if not all mystical traditions in the world.
4. Buddhist Lamas teach to transcend attachment to the body, including ideas of being young,
thin or beautiful. Tibetan master Milarepa taught that illness and signs of aging were a wonderful
blessing for cutting though our ego and attachment.
There are so many schools, traditions and lineages in Tibet that no generalization is even respectful, views within
these schools, traditions and even lineages differ greatly aswell.
5. Authentic Tibetan yoga includes over a 100 movements and involves a variety of exercises.
That's wonderful, so I guess that makes sure that a routine of 5 postures is invalid... Seriously thinking before you type, no?
6. Tibetan yoga also includes several breathing practices, hundreds of complex visualisations and many meditation
practices that a practitioner will take years to perfect under strict guidance from their personal Lama.
Again, so what, some breathing practices are more advanced than others, not all practices include visualisations and
not all exercises are performed under strict or any guidance from a personal or temporary Lama.
7. An authentic Tibetan practitioner will always reveal the name and lineage of their teacher, usually accompanied
by long dedicational verses. Similarly, authentic practitioners of any Tibetan system will make frequent citation and
indeed veneration of any practice from an authentic ancient text. Generally said, any authentic Tibetan practice will
have numerous references to lineage and provenance
Well the Colonel wasn't an authentic Tibetan practitioner but an Englishman, and usually & frequent = not always...
and will contain countless safeguards against invasive foreign interpolations.
8. Tibetan monks did not teach secret yoga practices or share anything but minor spiritual practices with Westerners
or laypersons generally in 1939.
Holy generally generalization batman, where do you get it? Alexandra David-Neel was a WOMAN who travelled through India, China
and mostly Tibet and got exposed to more knowledge, techniques, traditions, schools, mystical practices and teachings
twenty to thirty years before the colonel supposedly went to Tibet.
Even if the 5 Tibetans are made up by Peter Kelder or the Colonel or anyone
the huge amount of positive reviews on Amazon
seem to be clear that either they are most effective. The unconscious mind combined with repeated practice is extremely
powerful whatever the case.

"The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it
that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness with Being. It is a state of connectedness
with something immeasurable and indestructible, something that, almost paradoxically, is essentially
you and yet is much greater than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and form."

Thanks to all the people responsible for directing all this traffic to dedroidify.com!
I updated the entire series & linx pages for broken links and minor adjustements correcting sloppiness.
In December 2000 a gang of crooked politicians came to power after an election they didn't win.
These men promptly arranged terrorist attacks on their own people. Today, still wanted for war crimes, they survive as servants of Evil. If you need a terrorist attack, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... the Bush team.

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won.
There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail - think of it. Always."

As promised I removed EVERY SINGLE BROKEN LINK from the vids page, omg I'm pissed at google and youtube :p.
How the hell can you justify removing so many vids? I apologize to the users for not removing more of them
sooner, however you could have just let me know :p. I will now do a weekly check, you are still welcome
to report broken links or new vids. I will always add new vids the same day or the day after you contact me!
I will let the vids be striked for now, and when I have time I will add them to the offline recommended vids
section so the page looks a little cleaner. I also fixed some video links for psychonaut and attraction pages. The rest of the site will get a broken
link check later ;p
If anything isn't working as it should, plz sign the guestbook
and tell me and I'll fix it asap. (you can send a Private Msg and even if you don't I still have to approve it and I won't approve general
site-fixing stuff on the gb so don't worry about cluttering or sending half-empty signings or anything, just do it!)
(Btw, I found the magic of link validators and will be fixing every single broken link very soon)
Lots of cleanup done on the vids page. Fixed and added Terence Mckenna, Stanislav Grof and Ken Wilber vids and related pages.
Also Stanford Prison Experiment. Added my youtube profile link to the news&vids sidebars and linx page.
