Nice, H. P. Lovecraft, the "godfather of modern horror." Emphasize
the adjective "modern." His predecessor was Edgar Allen Poe, my all
time favorite most read author.

Turn down the lights to about 40 watts of light, light a few candles
and strategically place them around the room, get situated into a
comfortable chair, now, for full effect, put a sound track on with the
eerie cries of loons or birds associated with a marsh area.

You should preferably start later in the evening just after dusk with
your explorations with Poe and as you do, crawl into his mind as if
he were sitting next to you reading.

Now, start reading Poe's The Gold Bug to warm you up and
to send chills down your spine enough to look behind you at the
shadows flickering on the wall in the semi-darkness.

To get the mood just right, I've linked the eerie primeval sound of
loons.

Hi tgII, I just happened to look in my Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allan Poe and The Gold Bug was in there so I read it. Very suspensful....I enjoyed reading how Legrand decoded the message.
Lovecraft too spooky for me flames, no...just kidding.

Some fantastic illustrations by Harry Clarke from the book.

Edgar Allan Poe History

Post  tgII on Sat 28 Nov 2009, 22:59

seraphim, a book with a story over the internet is preferred.

Edgar Allen Poe's life and circumstances are quite revealing about that
period of time circa early 1800s. Two essays you might find intriguing
are The Purloined Life Of Edgar Allan Poe and Edgar Allan Poe: The Lost
Soul of America.

Good, this new movie The Twilight Saga: New Moon, will lend itself
to something that has puzzled me for a long time, that being why is
it women actually prefer psychopathic men to become mates with?

Must be from built-in innate survival reasons for the species.



    Institute’s Women’s Residential Treatment Program

    Women’s relationships with borderlines, narcissists, anti-socials and socio/psychopaths are the most damaging of all relationships. That’s because of the unique behaviors of their partners who have pathological disorders. These behaviors in the women’s partners include:

    • * criminal behavior and violation of social norms
      * deceitfulness (lying, use of alias, conning others for pleasure/profit)
      * impulsivity
      * irritability and aggressiveness/domestic violence
      * verbally aggressive
      * high fatality risks/those most likely to kill
      * reckless behavior/safety risks for others
      * recurrent DUIs/speeding violations
      * irresponsibility (financial, parental, work, relational)
      * lack conscience, guilt, remorse and rationalizes behavior
      * abandonment issues resulting in emotional hostage-taking
      * unstable and dramatic relationships
      * identity disturbances and chameleon-like behavior
      * addictive/compulsive behaviors (substance, gambling, )
      * hyper sexuality, sexual addiction, and infidelity
      * emotional instability
      * paranoid ideation
      * often stalking behavior
      * grandiosity while putting others down
      * interpersonally exploitative
      * most likely to have co-morbid addictions and other mental health issues


    Relationships that have these characteristics as a base of behavior are what we refer to as ‘inevitable harm’ to the partners, family, friends and children of.

    50% of the partners will show signs of stress disorders including PTSD.

help. I want you to check into the institute just as soon as you can."

That's the way I use to think before I figured out to center my life on
books, "could never 'afford' them because there were so many laying
around just sitting there waiting to be picked up and read." Got called
an "idiot savant" once, what an insult, "I read too much", damn, my IQ
barely peaks past 100.

It's a lifetime of study, don't think you need to have them all stashed
on your bookshelf all right now, it's like investing, the wealthiest
investors are "centenarian investors," they think in long term
scenarios
, books I wanted to read fifteen years ago are finally just
now getting around to being read.

The amazing thing about getting an education is, books I read many
years ago have a metaphysical effect on you, the author's thinking
may take years to finally permeate your own mind. It's like an
example of me reading just about all of Edgar Allan Poe's works
including his foreboding essay Eureka, I've read some of his short
stories countless times, now, years later, I see the world through
the eyes of Edgar Allan Poe, scary. This might explain my morbid
fascination with crime, criminality and high political crimes.

    Flames, you'll like this one, narrated by Christopher Walken.

What a list y'all got there! Keeping them at the top of my list. I have the four bookset on the Tolkein and on Edgar Cayce, Joseph Chilton Pearce, Edgar Allen Poe, The Basic Works of Aristotle, mostly nonfiction. Have a lot to catch up on, Joseph Farrell's work looks real good.
tgII if you mention another author and I happen to have that book, that would be strange right, because I don't have tons of books, maybe five or six binfuls and so far you posted a few I have.

I'm so far behind on movies
EDIT
Now it's really bizzare tgII Rolling Eyes When I pressed the sent button you were posting the same time I did on this thread but yours went through first and I just read it but look what I wrote above without knowing you were even posting or what you were going to say!!! If you mention another author, which you just did that would be absurd I said, and guess what you did, on Poe! Plus we happen to be in the same thread at the same time. Talk about the metaphysical! Maybe I'm thinking too much.

The metaphysics of the DaRythymDivine Board, saraphim.

I enjoyed reading Poe's Eureka essay because he was very cynically
comical about Aristotle
, referring to Aristotle as, "Aries Tottle", "Tottle"
meaning slowing following behind or walking, essentially ridiculing
Aristotle's method of narrowing the pursuit of knowledge down to only
one path of knowing or knowledge.

This has intrigued me for years.

It wasn't until Joesph Farrell came along and answered the question I
had been trying to understand for many years, that being, why did the
Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church split in the year
1054?


It split because Aristotle was translated into Latin and then eventually
English which corrupted physics and philosophy. If you were somehow
able to read Aristotle in Greek, you would get an entirely different
understanding of philosophy and physics, I think.

Edgar Allen Poe indeed challenged much more than Freemasons alright?!

You said you needed some magic.

Very interesting, the church bastardized science? I was trying to figure out why religion always picked a few Greek historians as the only source for science nowadays.
They narrowed down the path for knowledge in this area.

You are probably more right than you realize, Flames, this Avatar movie
by Cameron is like an advertisement and precisely what Peter Lavenda
described in his third book Sinister Forces on page 435,

  • Hollywood is the new religion in America and, to a certain extent, of the rest of the world as well. Hollywood brings the gods - the stars, "every man and every woman is a star" - down to earth, where they can be seen and heard and touched by the masses; not only Hollywood, of course, but also the music industry, and not only in California and New York but also in Bollywood and Europe and Mexico and Brazil and Venezuela and China and Hong Kong and so on. Americans emulate movie characters more than they do the saints of their religions; they dress like them, drive the same cars, have the same attitudes, talk like them, and eventually adapt the same cultural mores. Hollywood is a vast mind-control engine, which is why many independent films are ignored by the public: they do not want to think independently, they want to have their consciousness massaged by the old, familiar rituals. The tools of Hollywood are the tools of psychological warfare, of mind control and behavior control. Of advertising, in its most pernicious sense.


As a magician, what is it Cameron wants his subjects to think, what
message is he attempting to impart on the unsuspecting mind as it sits
there passively absorbing the message? Is eros combined with
magic/technology in this Avatar movie to process minds that are
incapable of coming to a different conclusion than that which Cameron
wants his audience to come to?

Am I paranoid?

TGII -
On the News in general forum in the NEWS section Page 4, your post at the top of the page, i was going to quote some of your ideas but pressed the wrong button and messed up, but im pretty sure i have repaired it word for word, not sure about the quotes highlights, if you get a chance to look at that, let me know if you notice anything that needs adjusting



Just watched a 1.3gb ripped version of  "Avatar"  ,  colour rendition  suffered  slightly  (understatement of the year ), Very Happy but  then  that put more emphasis on the story  to hold up  with  this handicap in visual stimuli Ok there are a few corny moments  ,  i mean  would  they still be using  Nam sounding helicopters  that far in the future No and some of the dramatics  reminded me of Geronimos last stand ,  but that aside,  the undercurrent of the movie does have  quite a profound  spiritual message regarding nature which i really think will affect many people.

BUt im sure it is a stunning visual spectacle in full cinematic  graphic mode 
On  the   erostic  angle ,  oh yes  the female  navi is so sexy TGII , i found it interesting they had tails,  as  mankind  has  that tailbone stump at base of spine ,  they say   if a cat loses its tail,  it loses its "sense"  of direction 
But subliminally ,  it does  open up  some  new  ground in directing sexual lust  ,  i think  that area  is about to explode
Has anyone viewed some of the latest hentai or 3D   sexual representation  ......just checked some free stuff out ,  ...goodgrief ...its almost the avatar world
