Seems like you have been initiated into the Feminine Mysteris.

A few weeks ago a gnome came to me in a vision. When I was watching Ancient Aliens on the History Channel they were talking about Chaco Canyon in the Southwest. They said some of these sites in the Southwest were laid out in a plan to reproduce the pattern of the stars in the constelltion of Orion, similar to the pyramids in Egypt and some Mayan sites. I was wondering if you had insights to the Orion Mysteries?

I have had some experiences with the dark greys, but also with spiritually advanced greys. Barbara Hand Clow, a famous New Age author, has said there is a connection between the Neanderthals and Atlantis. I sensed a similar connection. I was just wondering if you had any insights between the connection of the Orion mysteries with Atlantis and early peoples? Supposedly we are in an era many of these mysteries will be revealed.


YES!!!

Yeah, it's rough working HLP stuff in around his full-time career as a caring health care professional.

Wow. All I can ask is why? Why? These people seem to think writing is meant to serve them up prophecies.
:cry:
Thats why I stay on this side - none of that new age nonsense infiltrating Frank's work. The original series is not a collection canonized works of a bible. Why do they treat it otherwise?

Oh I have a lot to learn about the volumes of stupidity that plagues the world.

I think this is my favorite Dune quote of all time.

If I ever get the privilege, somehow, of writing a story in the Dune universe, or producing a mixed-media 'fan film' or whatever....that's going in there. Quite possibly as the introductory quote in place of the usual "The beginning is a very delicate time...blah blah blah I'm a hot Bene Gesserit trained empress, expert in tantra-bindu super sex" -Irulan

Norman Spinrad wrote:...... And like STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND only more so, DUNE was a formative literary factor in the cultural revolution of the 1960s, and in a much more positive manner, which is why it is so generally and deliberately misread as a novel centered on "ecological" issues.
-----------
The so-called ecological theme of DUNE does not stand up to serious scrutiny because the ecology of Herbert's fictional Arrakis is extremely simplified and unrealistically schematic. Arrakis is a vast planetary desert, its ecospheres only varying somewhat in degree of dessication, and indeed the main native food chain seems to consist of only two organisms--the tiny ones that produce the raw material of the "spice" and the huge Sandworms which graze upon them and convert it into the precious melange.

----------

And though melange is referred to throughout the novel as a "spice" and consumed in small quantities as such, that is not what it really is at all.

What it really is is that which could hardly speak its name in clear in the science fiction of the early 1960s, which explains why the book was such a hard sell to publishers in 1964 and 1965 even with the terminological obfuscation. Which also explains why it became a best-seller after the cultural transformations of 1967 once it was published and why it was one of the engines of those transformations.

Melange is not a fictional "spice."
Melange is a fictional psychedelic drug
Its effects are similar to those of LSD or mescaline or peyote.
Only much more powerful.

DUNE, therefore, is not primarily a novel thematically centered on ecology. It is centrally a novel exploring chemically enhanced states of consciousness and their effects not only on individual personality and spirit but on culture.

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1112



{also note that (@the time of the writing,anyway) Spinrad didn't understand the spice cycle, either ...}


also: this is ontopic, in that if it were posted Over There, it would be deleted, and the user banned for quoting Spinrad;
providing Merritt ever actually read it and understood what was being said ...

Your new avatar reminds me of the teddy at the end of Screamers. Not that it really looks much like it, it's just that I saw it again while home in the States. Brrrrrrr, scary! :?

Of course, that applies to a lot of people over there. :evil:

Let me qualify that a little...

One shouldn't TRY to be a smartass when they're a dumbass. Being a smartass implies some level of intelligence. :wink:
