August 11th, 2016 / Comments Off on Flat Earth Debunked In Two Minutes / by CuriousBrain
I am not a ‘flat-earther’. It is astounding how this idea has taken root on the internet and how many people are convinced we live on a flat plane instead of a sphere. The point made by the narrator, that being this was done on purpose to try and ‘muddle’ the internet, seems valid. Any other ideas are welcome!

April 29th, 2015 / Comments Off on The Divine Spark: Psychedelics, Consciousness, and the Birth of Civilization by Graham Hancock / by CuriousBrain
“There can be no more intimate and elemental part of the individual than his or her own consciousness. At the deepest level, our consciousness is what we are – to the extent that if we are not sovereign over our own consciousness, then we cannot in any meaningful sense be sovereign over anything else either. So it has to be highly significant that, far from encouraging freedom of consciousness, our societies in fact violently deny our right to sovereignty in this intensely personal area and have effectively outlawed all states of consciousness other than those on a very narrowly defined and officially approved list. The war on drugs has thus unexpectedly succeeded in engineering a stark reversal of the true direction of Western history by empowering faceless bureaucratic authorities to send armed agents to break into our homes, arrest us, throw us into prison, and deprive us of our income and reputation simply because we wish to explore the sometimes radical, though always temporary, alterations in our own consciousness that drugs facilitate.” ~ Graham Hancock
April 28th, 2015 / Comments Off on Red Ice Insight – A New Stockholm To Be Built Within 6 Years / by CuriousBrain
“The Swedish political elite have plans to build a new city, funded entirely by Swedish taxpayers, to accommodate the massive wave of incoming immigrants. This radical plan also proposes the confiscation of summer homes and the conversion of old historical buildings and churches in order to facilitate the arrival of new immigrants. Meanwhile, Sweden’s welfare system is plummeting as politicians suffer from Stockholm syndrome, trying to be a “humanitarian superpower.” Native Swedes have been chosen to carry the weight of the world, sacrificing themselves on the altar of multiculturalism.” ~ Henrik Palmgren
