Opening of AstralCity.org

AstralCity.org has just opened.

AstralCity.org is a community web site for all those who want to understand and know more about the Astral dimension, either via dreams, Astral Projections, OBE (Out of Body experiences), Lucid Dreams, etc.

The technical offering of the web site will be expanded over time. It already includes a blog section and a wiki section.

Each member has its own blog to use as a diary for their practices and experiences.

ACTION: Searching for John McCain

I saw this post at Dailykos:

Cross Posted On Open Left

Searching for John McCain is a massive, online activism campaign designed to make at least ten million non-partisan, poll-tested, on-message voter contacts that reveal the damning truth about John McCain entirely through mainstream news reports and McCain’s own words. Through mass blogger participation and the use of embedded hyperlinks, Searching for John McCain will connect millions of curious, low-information swing voters to negative, mainstream news articles about John McCain without 99% of those voters even knowing that Searching for John McCain exists.

To learn how to participate, and to learn how it will work, read on into the extended entry.

Omega-3 and the link between violence and diet

This article explains that much violence is apparently related to our modern diet. It starves our brains of key nutrients found in fish oil.

a bikeshed color problem

Recently, I made a very informal proposal for Drupal developers to cooperate to fight spam at the source of the problem. Unfortunately, there has been no reply to my email.

Regularly, the developers' mailing list, just like many other discussion groups, would go into lengthy debates about fairly inconsequential topics. Around that time, a new default theme for Drupal was being heavily discussed, as well as a new convention to name different Drupal releases.

A way to fight spam together?

Recently, spammers were heavily targetting wechange which was experiencing problems as a result. I wrote to the Drupal developers' list to ask for assistance. Fortunately, I have been able to find a solution quickly.

A digest of Formng Tribalized Communities

I'm contemplating summarizing Forming Tribalized Communities. I have more than one interest and it might help to weave them together. The book Forming Tribalized Communities sets out a large view of where we are now as a culture and goes on to describe the emerging culture. There is a lot to read and perhaps it is best thought of as a resource or reference. This is why a summary will allow a reader to have an overall view and gives the option to focus down to a particular chapter or commentary.
Communitas is an ongoing commentary and likely to be more of a series of blog entries. Perhaps it is more of a reflective discussion and will address other related aspects such as Western Buddhism or consumerism. I'll work on supplying an overarching statement or description of both these blogs.

Adding more

I have, I hope, added Chapter 14 to FTC.
I intend to add a chapter each day until completed. Then I will turn my attention to the whole site and attempt to make it easier to understand for me and new readers. It seems an awful messy business right now. My experience has been that projects only make sense when used and that is what I intend to do.
