Not only do they employ observers, but they wage psychic warfare against us 'crazy shamans'. That's where the 'Men In Black' motif comes in, I
believe. I've been attacked several times in the astral plane. This is a dangerous thing we are doing here. Fighting for Truth is never easy in any
age, I guess.
We aren't marketers, we are artists. Marketing has its place but the art needs to come first so that it can exist on a sublime level above greed and
The way I see it is, all we need to do is to create novel forms and ideas (which are, like the kingdom of heaven comprised of treasures both old, and
new), and then launch them, through the use of language into the noosphere, to bring about the omegapoint of the cosmogenesis of the noosphere
(mindsphere), which means that our objects of art, whatever they may be, will be informative in the most creative and ingenious of ways.
I'm enthralled myself, as a bit of an NLP practitioner, with the idea of the double bind, which places the mind in a rational and ethical quandry
who's only resolution involves a paradigm shift. In my experience these new paradigms are also the source of much laughter and joy, so we have to have
the audacity to be fools for the sake of what is right, relative to the absurdities of normalcy, and in the process drive EVERYONE mad and insane, and

There's an idea capable of "popping" everyone, I am convinced, which we the mad can approach each from our own artistic perspective with the aim to
communicate the new paradigm, so that it really takes root because once the mind and the heart changes shape, it can never go back to its original
So yes, first sublime art, but then the art of marketing is very important, but it must be done in the form of a covert double bind maybe using the
Socratic method, designed to eventually cause the recipient, to burst out laughing in epiphany.
It can be done, and because there's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come, it can't not!
It isn't a mad person who's the eternal optimist, but the one with the courage to reject everything else that is utterly absurd and irrational by
The thesis holds, because we the Mad, have the imagination, the courage (insane courage) and the audacity, to actually believe, that we can change the
world. We are the mothers and fathers of the new messianic age of spirit and reason, a new post-historical avante guard radiating forth a new
enlightenment, leading us all to a single door, and into a whole new domain of unfettered freedom and liberation and new possibility for the human
