Reversed Vortex Breathing

In some advanced meditations one can arrive at a vision of oneself myself ‘pouring’ life energies into a hole in the ground with ‘this world’ inside it.

This is similar to the  hourglass model but what is used in measuring is not some sand but one’s own energy flow.

This is strongly related to the ‘back flow initiation
process’.

However, he we are applying Vortex Breathing with an inversion: during exhale the energy of breath is normally pushed into a black hole (observable after some time of practicing). Now, one can create a ‘recoil’ force by breathing out strongly with half-closed lips like when filling a balloon.

The recoil will push awareness back to the outside… like pulling one’s head outside the sand..

 

Itan’le – The torch of enlightenment

Audio file (1 hour) available here!

(note: just download the file (<50MB) if you don’t want to wait for it to start every time)

What it is:

Itan’le is an ancient tradition to connect communities in their hearts, souls, minds, and spirits.

Literally, it means ‘a fire in a place’ but the place can be your heart, your house, your city, or the whole world.

Doing it in more than one place at the same time, it resonates and grows beyond its own local force.

Where it will be:

This year, at the Equinox September 2017. we will do it in four strategic places around the world:

  • Sydney, Australia 6:02 AEST Sept. 23rd
  • Columbus, Ohio  16:02 EDT Sept. 22nd
  • Zurich, Switzerland 22:02 MET Sept. 22nd
  • São Paulo, Brazil 17:02 BST Sept. 22nd

When it will be:

Times above are for the actual equinox. One can do it anytime during the following 24 hours.
One can also do it more than once.



This will give us a tetrahedron that is spanning the globe.

  • Sydney and São Paulo will enter the SPRING equinox, Zurich and Columbus, Ohio the WINTER equinox.

How it will be:

Divined pattern:

Keywords:

North: Irete-gunda PERMANENT PERFECTION

South: Osa-wonrin SHAPESHIFTING

West: Irete-yeku ATTAINING FULL POTENTIAL

East: Osa-fua  SEEING EVERYTHING

General idea of using the Itan’le:

Above you can see the basic setup. This alone will guarantee a resonance.

To take advantage of this setup, I present several ideas in the following. Whichever of those seem easy and feasable to do for you, just do them and ignore the others.

If you are a facilitator, reflect carefully about the potential of your group before communicating any of the ideas.

Runes:

Invocation (Switchwords):

N-S-W-E: regun sari fasa re-ur

Audio:

Drumming:

tata dun ta tatata dun – dun tatata dundun tata – dun ta dun ta dun tatata – tata dun ta dundundundun

Voice and drum together (for Irete-0gunda / North)

Sounds (didgeridoo):

There is a World Didgeridoo Meditation at your LOCAL SUNSET in the 23rd of September. You may want to synchronize or participate. See here.

Visualizing exercise:

  1. Imagine the Earth sphere (concave or convex, as you like, or one after the other)
  2. Locate the four points on the surface
  3. Imagine the according qualities in and around those points
  4. Vibrate the Rune into the quality for additional strength
  5. View the resulting energy tetrahedron from various angles
  6. Shrink the tetrahedron to fit around your physical body (half a yard extra above and below)
  7. Rotate the tetrahedron as you like best for you

 

Meditation:
Feel gratitude to the Spirits in the air (North) – the spirits in the Earth (South)-  those in the past (West) and those in the future (East)

more advanced exercises:

  • chant the rune chant to each of the four drum patterns
  • for coparison. use other useful patterns, such as Owonrin-rosun and/or Otura-rete
  • separate chest and head voices according to the drum pattern
  • chant expressing gratitude
  • … expressing partnership
  • … ‘all-options’

 

(very) advanced exercises:

  • determine the Eshu numbers of each of the nodes of the tetrahedron
  • calculate the Eshu number of the entire tetrahedron
  • invoke the IRUNMOLE of the nodes
  • have the Eshus create a ‘gang of Eshus’
  • have them form a 4-Warriors formation (TASK FORCE, much like your personal rescue team in the 201 initiation)
  • determine a name for the complete formation and SPAWN it with clones occupying the other nodes (where you are not currently) and help resonate the tetrahedron

for those interestedin geometry á la Buckminster Fuller:

  • create a push/pull model of the tetrahedron based on the relative strenght of the Odus at the nodes

if that’s not enough yet for you, hahaha:

  • create a COMPLETE model including supporting Odus (based on the Eshu numbers) and create a push/pull model (or just meditate on the complete configuration)

Music/audio to play with it if you like:

“Greetings from the Seeing Heart” Sandor/Smith, 2013, based on Cherokee drum pattern for welcoming chiefs of another tribe.

See you there soon – wherever you may be !

The MinMaxMan (1997 & 2017)

The MinMaxMan concept had been presented for the first time in Ojai, California, for my friends at the Krishnamurti Foundation, in July 1997.

Already at that time, all details of this concept had been technologically feasible. Since then, even though no new paradigms evolved, technological progress has refined and empowered the machinery necessary for an implementation of a MinMaxMan.

The creation of a MinMaxMan constitutes the feasibility, and hence possibility, of a Non-AI Singularity  – one ‘entity’ that could override the Will and Wants of the rest of humanity.

The reality of an actual threat can be considered having a probability of some of orders of magnitude higher than that of a much feared AI-singularity. Yet, it doesn’t seem to raise eyebrows as much as the latter.

This article aims to increase the awareness of the actual possibility of such a singularity as a reality that could emerge TODAY.

Some of the paradoxes involved with this concept have been described in the Science Fiction series of ‘The Logs of JD Flora’, first published as an ‘e-zine’ over the period of 18 months, starting in April of 1995. There, a MinMaxMan, based on a minimal physical apparatus called the ‘substrate’, acts as the entity SFYNX and interacts via the Internet with human ‘users’ and ‘super-users’, defeating the boundaries of space and time.

The path to the creation of MinMaxMan begins with the consideration of a Buddhist concept elaborated by Grimm Georg in ‘Die Lehre des Buddho’: if one would subtract physical functionality from a person, would the person as such ‘change’ or not? For example, a person who has lost a leg would still be the same person even though it would have a limitation in physical movement. Likewise, a person having lost eye sight is still the same ‘person’. With this, we arrive at the (quite horrible) vision of a MinMan, a quadriplegic, blind, and deaf man who nevertheless of would have a sense of himself, have consciousness, and a Will.

Now enter modern technology: we can restore at least some basic functionality with prosthetic devices and simulate vision and audio via receptors on areas of skin, like the back and resonators near skull bones. We could further remove the heart and replace it with an electro-mechanic pump and likewise substitutes the lungs by an apparatus of enriching the blood stream artificially with oxygen. In the end, we could also use artificial nutrition and do away with stomach and intestines.

The end result appears to be a hybrid of technology and a biological substrate: a brain, some skin and muscle tissue for perceptions and controls (input/output).

But this is only the first phase of MinMaxMan because NOW we can start augmenting the qualities and quantities of perception and action potential of this hybrid. And we can do that to a degree that is dwarfing any potentials of the past:

  • connect multiple channels of high-definition video to the visual inputs
  • connect multiple audio channels
  • connect controls to fly drones and tanks
  • add weapon controls
  • connect to large data banks of all literature ever published
  • connect live-biographies (today’s Facebook) for real-time information on  every living person

If we add sufficient controls and pathways and nobody interferes, one single such person could assume control over progressively larger and larger areas of society (such a scenario is also possible without prior minimization of the human body function, of course).

Note, that for this Non-AI singularity to happen, NO revolution is necessary, it could happen at any time, even right now, and the person in control could, in theory, be anyone of those of the 7 billions humans walking on Earth who have access to the Internet, irregardless of race, initial financial power, age or gender.

In extension, we can safely declare the major ingredients of all past philosophies and ideologies as null and void – a vision of the MinMaxMan overrides any ideology or scientific ‘reality’ – from Socrates, Machiavelli , and Descartes to Hume. We witness a potential reality which has never been considered in history except in a few post-50’s Science Fiction works.

But we’re not talking about Science Fiction:

You, dear reader, could be declared OBSOLETE
right this minute by such a Non-AI singularity.

Recent summaries:

S17:E43 “Oh my God, Where are we going?” (July 5th, 2017, Portuguese)
Episode 43 of the 17th Season centered around a discourse on the path of humankind seen as an ever-repeating script of Ifá (pataki), specifically that of Orisha Eniyan which is symbolizing the human Being. Also featured were: the archetypes of nations; the highs and lows of Orisha Shango employed in enterprises of various sizes; Orisha Osanyin and the Pharmaceutical Industry.

Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming

Influences from the environment control our thoughts and emotions and can distort even our physical sensations. They are usually hidden from the conscious inspection of the human mind and can override genetic programming (DNA). They are summarized under the heading of epigenetics.

With the program package Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming, we can learn to identify the sources of epigenetic influences. We can then choose whether we want to amplify its influence in order to bring more of it into lives or if we want to eliminate them. We call this process tuning because we use emotional resonance to modify its characteristics.

This process should not be confused with a recent method for biological manipulation of genetic material (DNA) that is also known as Epigenetic Tuning. Such an alteration produces genetically modified organisms (GMOs) which can produce new offspring, such as in plant cultures, or even a human GMO. The role of DNA itself has been disproportionally blown up since its discovery. Today’s concept of its applications is but just one short step away from racism and eugenics. With this, we do not have anything in common.

In any case, recent scientific research has claimed that meditation can alter DNA itself. There has been no official medical investigation so far on the impact of Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming as a modifier of DNA. For the individual, the permanent relief that comes as a result of Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming does not need any such proof.  It is evident in itself through one’s own personal perceptions and experience.

The same holds true for ‘reprogramming’. Whether specific genes are being physically changed or not through Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming is irrelevant as long as the results show a new behavior pattern. With reprogramming we can literally ‘copy’ talents and qualities such as playing musical instruments or learning foreign languages.

The first part of Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming has previously been a package in itself. It provides a person with a completely new way of perceiving oneself in the stream of time between past and future. This is necessary to avoid an actuation of emotional contents associated with patterns in the past, such as traumatic memories, panic and phobias, or excessive flynching. This first part in itself is already more than reason enough to embark into learning and applying Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming for oneself.

This package comes in 4 individual sessions and with full online support for the time in between sessions. There is a website and a facebook page for Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming. After the first two sessions, access is granted to closed group on Facebook which provides background materials and the opportunity to share with others who are have applied Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming in their lives. It has become also a source of inspiration for many because you can learn from others of some of the many ways that Epigenetic Tuning & Reprogramming can be employed for more success and happiness in daily life.

Girapoli (depolarization)

Girapoli is a process sequence for enhanced depolarization. It is being offered as a package of 4 sessions in which you will learn to do it for yourself after having successfully depolarized several cardinal polarizations which are common to all human beings.

Polarization, the root cause for all problems

Most ancient philosophies and religions have isolated the phenomenon of polarization as the root cause of most, if not all, problems, either explicitly, like the Vedas and original Buddhism, or implicitly, like the Gnostics and African Ifá.

There is only one known remedy to it, all others tentatives are worsening the problem.  There is a temporary shortcut which consists in assuming the ‘opposite pole’. This has sometimes been seen as the final solution, like in the Balinese philosophy, and has been cause of a lot of misinterpretations. Both approaches are being practiced and taught while doing the Girapoli package.

Mistaking polarization as a general ‘law’ in the progress of civilizations

Based on Greek and Indian philosophies, European philosophers have concluded that polarization be a fact of nature and would be beneficial. This has led to the theory of ‘historical dialectic materialism’ of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, for example. After doing the Girapoli process for a short time only, you may already come to look at this and similar inferential constructions simply as belief systems.

Group polarization and manipulation

Members of groups can share a common polarization as a means of identifying with the group. This has been used extensively as a tool of manipulation. Recognizing these influences and becoming free from group identities and its insanities requires a basic individual polarity handling first.

Being caught in the ‘Matrix’

Polarizations do not occur just in isolated nodes but in polarized contexts. It is not enough to find and depolarize just one central polarization and be done with it. It is necessary to systematically erase the network of polarizations in one’s life which one could call the matrix of belief systems.  In the Girapoli package, an emphasis is therefore given to the learning of Girapoli process itself and its application in daily life.

Girapoli: beyond depolarization

In the Girapoli process, you can go far beyond any past solution to the resolution of the all-pervasive problem of polarizations. You can see for yourself what the original reasons for the existence of polarities are and you will learn how to ‘invoke’ polarities safely and draw its full power without getting hurt. To the best of our knowledge, this has never been done in the history of man before. With the knowledge and application of Girapoli, you can enter a new phase in the evolution of mankind!

 

 

The “Flow State”

The ‘Flow State’ is a state of mind and body in which a human is able to perform beyond ordinary abilities.

It is a ‘peak state’ in which components of the human being are synchronized to a degree that physical and mental obstacles are being overcomed with little or no effort.

Very often other peak-states are being mistaken for the ‘Flow State’. It is being assumed that the ‘real’ Flow State cannot be simply ‘switched on’ and that one can only prepare oneself for the possibility that ‘it happens’. This is partially true. However, one CAN enter the true Flow State deliberately using the outline given by Max Sandor’s in his Thrills&Chills Management articles if one can follow his footsteps.

It would be very difficult to teach the true ‘Flow State’ using online media. An interactive workshop ny Max Sandor can offer an introduction and a first glimpse.  Personal coaching is usually necessary but even that cannot guarantee the achievement of a real, ‘true’ Flow State.

Most aspirants capitulate because of inner resistances. Learning and applying the Girapoli package and undergo Epigenetic Tuning&Reprogramming are excellent preparations that have been leading people quite naturally and by itself into the experience of the true ‘Flow State’.

Serious aspirants can engage in the Reset, Restart, Go! program which provides a 9 day immersion program for body and mind.

 

 

Project Nagual

nagualenglishfrontProject Nagual is exactly what the name implies. 9 days of total immersion with a group of 16 men and women. In Brazil only. Application with interview, waver, and adequate preparations are necessary. Participants can opt out on Ayahuasca and other rituals if so desired; all steps of the program are voluntary. No outside contact is possible for the entire time. This experience is only for those without health issues.

 

(Click on the image to see the Flash flyer (Flash does not run iphone/ipad). Also available in Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German upon request.)

 

Reset, Restart, Go!

resetwarningA complete life reset in 9 days. The actual program is individual and will vary from person to person, There will be no contact with the outside world for the first 6 days. Only available in Brazil at selected times.

Why would you want to do that?

 

Vacation Versus Reset!Restart,Go! – Do you want a Soft Reset or a Hard Reset?

Let me do an awkward comparison: for the past weeks I had been tweaking my cellular with Windows 10-Beta loaded. I was getting rid of old data, moving apps around, resetting again and again, until the memory was full once more and Whatsapp stopped working completely. Then, yesterday, I came across a website saying: YES, you should do hard reset on your Windows 10! Finally, I decided to go through the ordeal. It was much easier and faster than I expected. Everything is reloaded again, memory usage dropped by 50 (fifty!) percent. It’s like having a brand-new phone.

This maybe sort of an inappropriate comparison. But it reflects the reality of life: sometimes it is not sufficient anymore to cope with a full agenda, overloaded brain, a chest full of suppressed emotions, and a constant frustration. Vacations may give a short relief. But after a day back in the mill, everything is the same as before. A sabbatical is a drastic solution and not always viable for the future.

Enter Reset!Restart,Go! into the picture. In 9 days, you can more than just recycle, you can reset your entire system. And, with Epigenetic Tuning&Reprogramming incorporated, you can get MORE than your factory settings back, so to speak, you’ll get a lot of major bug fixes and a lot of apps and upgrades for free.

This 9-day-program can include revolutionary apps like MicroMotion, 4-Warriors, and the ‘Flow State’ training, all three exceeding ordinary human abilities and are currently only taught in person by Max Sandor in Brazil.

 

 

 

Sound Consciousness

Sound & Consciousness

by Maximilian J. Sandor

Overview (expanded Table of Contents)

Prelude – “Cutting Adorno’s birthday cake”

A strange twist of fate made me, as a timid 7-year-old, becoming elected, or better: singled out, to cut the old man’s birthday cake on the day after his birthday, which was the eve of mine – an event which he himself ridiculized as “Kinderkram” – silly stuff that children do.  The moment the knife in my hand approached the cake, the entire room seemed to engulf in a deafening silence.  Then, when I cut, the knife’s blade, gliding over the porcelain plate below the cake, made the most awkward noise I ever heard until then. A scratchy shrill screeching sound, impossible to define, let alone replicate. Unexpectedly, the silence continued. Seconds, that seemed to be hours, passed by. I was traumatized. Somebody commenced clapping hands and, embarrassed, stopped again. Applause was insult to Adorno’s ears. And then, Adorno laughed, or perhaps just smiled, a significant event in either case, and the birthday crowd relaxed and eased.  “Quite unique” he said and was shaking my hand.

What followed were hours of talks, most of which I, barely alphabetized, did not understand to the least extent. About aesthetics, about music and philosophy, and why ‘music is life’. The latter stuck in my ear, it followed me in my life. It made me spend time and money on making ‘music’ on all kinds of instruments while rejecting sillily to learn or play compositions of others other than fragments of melodies which could be woven into a free flow of meditative tonal events.

What elates us hearing a certain piece of music and what bores us while listening to some other? What is the origin of the phenomenal appearance of ‘music’ and why is it found exclusively in the human domain?

Questions I was chasing for a lifetime. While I have not found a conclusive answer yet myself, and only fragments of possible answers from others, I collected clues, hints to potential realities behind our perceptions, some of which I will point to in the following.
