CHAOTOPIA Newsletter, May 2019
Welcome to this slightly briefer issue of the Chaotopia newsletter.  

Archive of Newsletters since Dec 2018 is here.

The Threemilk-Moon and the Lithe-Moon issues of the RÛNA-EORMENSYL blog are out. The former has an article by Matthew Hern, on the gods of the path of initiation - The Dagazian Dawn: Part I: Of Odin, Shiva and No-Thing.

The latter has another episode of Ingrid Fischer's brilliant 'Introduction to Germanic Soul-Lore'. In this one, Fischer discusses how we come to have individual selves.

The other week, 69 Discordians got on a bus and went to various places including the underground temples of Damanhur, Carl Jung's garden and the CERN Large Hadron Collider to Immanentize the Eschaton. 
They went to the 'very centre of the CERN collider (above ground!), which is the site of a ruined Appollonian temple' and performed a ritual which is videoed here
They presented one of the physicists who are smashing protons together at energies which probably only existed very near the start of the Big Bang with a scale model of the Higgs Boson, contributed by Jimmy Cauty. See the pic below. CERN is clearly the ultimate temple of a certain kind of ultra-modernity, but the people that work there are pretty far out.
Pilgrims each got a copy of the Pilgrim's Guidebook, a magnificent piece of magic art to which I contributed a piece called 'Pilgrimage and Sacrifice', which may well appear in some other context one day.
Liverpool Arts Lab have a few copies of left over from a limited run of 100, available to buy here.
They also had an on-bus radio channel, Pilgrim Radio, which broadcast over the whole of the journey to anyone, not just the pilgrims. It was full of fine music and mad stories and interviews. I did an interview on connected breathwork for it. The link is dead at the moment, but at some stage they will be making these bits available again. 


Gordon White discusses How And Why To Do Mushrooms. Good discussion on structuring a psychedelic mushroom experience to interact with the mushroom as 'a vastly ancient alien intelligence exploring the cosmos by interacting with various nervous systems.'

Breaking Convention conference is coming up this August. Programmes and tickets are available here . Ahead of the summer's events, they are posting videos on YouTube at a frantic rate, much faster than I can find time to watch them.

Vinay Gupta talks about global collapse as a context for spiritual awakening. Hence the title - Waking Up in the Monster Factory, because the ideal human for this society is a monster. At minute 42+ he demolishes the way yoga has been assimilated into capitalism.

And if that isn't enough, here's Part 2.

Went to see Sun Ra Arkestra in Leeds last week. The massive joyousness of their sound is... stunning. The world needs more of this vibe. If you have never heard their sound, check this out for some idea of what they are like. And see them while they are on tour.
