Matrix Masters' Overview
Our News section was originally created by a few bloggers, most
of whom continue to post summaries of provocative, and little publicized,
stories from the world's press. When possible, each summary also provides
a direct link to the original story for those who want to read the full
item. Currently we are adding to our list of news bloggers through volunteers
among our supporters at www.dotNeters.net
In a nutshell, here is the
general editorial philosophy for Matrix Masters' News:
The mission of
Matrix Masters' News summaries can best be summed up in the lines Franklin
Rosemont wrote in his introduction to the writings of Slim Brundage,
where he described Chicago's famous College of Complexes:
The aim of the
College of Complexes, as an educational/recreational forum, was neither
to recruit members nor to mobilize troops for the achievement of specific
goals, but rather to inform, agitate, educate, emancipate, provoke,
inspire, offend, scandalize, tickle, and excite.
Well, our aim
here at Matrix Masters is to provoke an unmuffled, ungagged, and unsilenced
generation of world citizens into speaking up and taking the actions
necessary to wrest control from the privileged few and to reclaim this
planet in the name of all the humans, animals, plants, and other forms
of life who share its bounty.
And as for our
name, Matrix Masters, we intend this as reminder that ultimately
YOU are your very own Master of the Matrix
Definition: Matrix a mould,
environment, or substance in which a thing is developed, a womb.
many years, a legendary series of entheobotany seminars was held in a
jungle resort near the Mayan ruins of Palenque in Mexico. It is in the
spirit of the wonderful talks given in those mystical seminars that Palenque
Norte has evolved. Our mission is not to re-create the Palenque experience
but instead to build upon it, initially with a Burning Man twist, but
over time we will be adding presentations given in many other venues.
We like to think of Palenque Norte as a cyberspace version of the vibe
found "around the end of the pool" at the Hotel Chan Kah Ruinas
near Palenque, Mexico during that magical time when Terence McKenna and
his band of merry men and women were exploring some of the most distant
outposts of consciousness And so we are pleased to provide audio recordings
from a few of those seminars along with a growing number of contemporary
talks given by some of the most provocative and brilliant psychedelic
thinkers of our age.

Ages: We are living in an extraordinary period of
time. For thousands of years prophets, seers, and ancient traditions around
the globe have spoken of the time between Great Ages, the crack in the
cosmic egg. What we are about to witness, and more importantly to participate
in, is beyond our current ability to comprehend, for we are approaching
a singularity. All we can know about it for sure is that we must be mentally
prepared for anything.
The Planetary level [of the
Mayan calendar] beginning 1755 AD is broken up into 13 sections with each
of these sections 19.7 years long. The Galactic level beginning January
4, 1999, is broken up into 13 sections with each of these sections only
360 days long. And finally the Universal level to begin February 10, 2011,
is broken up into 13 sections with each of these sections only 20 days
long! In sum, it is obvious that Creation is speeding up and that more
and more is being packed into shorter and shorter periods of time. Each
cycle of Creation contains the same amount of advancement and change but
each cycle runs 20 times faster! The same amount of change that happened
in 1.26 billion years of the Cellular cycle now occurs in 360 days!
Causes: Did you know that there have been two meltdowns
of nuclear reactors in the Los Angeles area? One of them released several
hundred times more radiation into the air than the Three Mile Island accident.
Until Liz Crawford started noticing two headed animals near her home,
only a few people knew about this and other massive toxic waste problems
in the middle of a rapidly growing residential area. Today, largely thanks
to her efforts, the biggest employer in Southern California has been forced
to begin doing something about the poisons they have let loose in the
ground water under Los Angeles.
This is just one of the inspiring
stories you will learn about in the newest section of the Matrix Masters
Web site. But you will also find more than just stories here, this is
also where you can find the Passionate Causes DreamBoard. It is on the
DreamBoard where you will find an ongoing discussion of people's passionate
dreams, the resources they require to make them come true, and every once
in a while we hope our dreamers will also find a resource angel who learned
of their Passionate Cause right here.
