MindMatters: Everything's a Remix: Origins of the World's Mythologies

jupiter jesus
For as long as cultures have had contact with each other, attentive observers have noticed the similarities between their respective myths. Today, scholars hypothesize that these similarities are either the result of accident, cultural sharing or diffusion, or a shared collective unconscious of symbols. But in his revolutionary book, The Origins of the World's Mythologies, E.J. Michael Witzel argues that there's a better reason for many shared features: common origin. Like linguistics or genetics, he argues that with enough data, you can trace back versions of myths to shared mythologies from the past, all the way back through human history. In the process, he has identified a common, complex storyline shared by mythologies spanning Europe, Asia, the Americas, and stretching out into Northern Africa and Southeast Asia. His work suggests that in the distant past, humanity shared a common set of myths, but prior to the spread of humanity into Eurasia and the Americas, a new storyline developed, which has been retained but modified over the past 40,000 years of history.

Today on MindMatters we discuss the basics of Witzel's theory, the two major types of mythology he has identified, and what it says about human creativity.

From 'Spook Air' to The 'Lolita Express': The Genesis And Evolution of The Jeffrey Epstein-Bill Clinton Relationship

| A composite image shows from left to right, Jeffrey Epstein, Bill Clinton, Adnan Khashoggi and Robert Maxwell.
Far from being the work of a single political party, intelligence agency or country, the power structure revealed by the network connected to Epstein is nothing less than a criminal enterprise that is willing to use and abuse children in the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and control.

On August 10th, and for several days after, speculation swirled after it was announced that Jeffrey Epstein had been found dead in his cell. His cause of death has officially been ruled suicide-by-hanging.

Epstein, the billionaire pedophile and sex trafficker with a myriad of connections to the rich and powerful in the United States and several other countries, had told those close to him that he had feared for his life prior to his sudden "suicide," the Washington Post reported, while his defense lawyers claimed that he had planned to cooperate with federal authorities.

Following the controversial conclusion by the New York Medical Examiner that Epstein's death was a suicide — a conclusion contested by Epstein's attorneys as well as by independent forensic pathologists, given the apparent evidence pointing towards strangulation — corporate media coverage of the Epstein case has slowed to a trickle, save for sensationalist stories about his alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell and new salacious details of his past. Gone from corporate media are any hints of the larger scandal, revolving around the admission that Epstein had "belonged to intelligence."

Comment: Superb reporting by Webb and Mint Press News. She is also brave, given what happens to people who report on 'The Octopus'. All of this, and more, still goes on today. The names of the front companies may change, and new names be be 'blooded', but it's the same series of interlocking ramified networks engaged in terrorism, drug-trafficking and pedophilia on an industrial scale.

For the most part, they either know each other, or at least recognise each other in a crowd. Lacking in any conception of the divine, of transcendence, or a higher power, they are extreme materialists, purely mechanical machines - and yet, while they lack in morals, they are endowed with preternatural levels of cunning.

The world that they create, and control, is made in their image. They are, effectively, functionally, an alien parasitic race feeding off the human race. For the most part, they have no insight into their role, programmed as they are to spend their lives in the service of maximising their fellow man's slavery to the material.

It is very unlikely that they will 'fail' in the way the author hopes. More likely, they will increase human suffering to unbearable levels, at which point the environment/climate itself will destabilize and collapse civilization. As we see from increasing weather extremes and seismic upheaval, this process is accelerating with each passing month...

War Whore

This is What Gloating Looks Like... NY Times Distorts War-Torn Syria

syria destruction
A supposed survey of war-torn Syria by America's so-called "newspaper of record" was not merely shoddy journalism; it was a cynical attempt to rewrite the history of the eight-year war.

The meandering report of more than 2,700 words was headlined: "What 'Victory' Looks Like: A Journey Through Shattered Syria." It would have been more accurate to have used the title, "What Gloating Looks Like."

Even the sly way the word 'victory' is put in quotation marks indicates, from the outset, the insidious purpose of the article. To pour scorn on how Syria and its people have in actual fact defeated a foreign-sponsored criminal war for regime change. The regime-change plot goes back to at least 2005 as this old CNN interview clumsily admits.

With mawkish words, the New York Times reporters effect to lament the rubble and grief among the Syrian population. But all the while, the implication conveyed is that President Bashar Assad "presided over the destruction."

American Apocalypse Coming: The Deep State's Plot to Destabilize the Nation is Working

deep state graphic
"The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out ... without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable." — H. L. Mencken
The U.S. government is working hard to destabilize the nation.

No, this is not another conspiracy theory.

Although it is certainly not far-fetched to suggest that the government might be engaged in nefarious activities that run counter to the best interests of the American people, doing so will likely brand me a domestic terrorist under the FBI's new classification system.

Observe for yourself what is happening right before our eyes.

Comment: Words of warning that have been shouted for a long time now. Will you heed them?

Manufacturing Mass Fascism Hysteria

based spartan protester

"Based Spartan" guy
If the neoliberal ruling classes expect to keep the American masses worked up into a white-eyed hysteria over "fascism" until November 2020, they're going to need to get some better Nazis. The current Nazis are just not going to cut it. They are neither scary nor Nazi enough. OK, the militia ones look kind of scary, and that "Based Spartan" guy looks kind of... uh, weird, but most of them just look like regular old rednecks. How hard would it be to get them some brown shirts, or those khaki pants like they wore in Charlottesville, or some other type of Nazi-like uniform?

And some jackboots. People love those jackboots.

Seriously, the Resistance needs to get their official narrative optics in order, and they need to do it without delay. Millions of liberals are standing by to be brainwashed into a year-long frenzy of manufactured mass "fascism" hysteria, but they are going to need some halfway convincing Nazis to spastically freak out over. A few hundred bozos in MAGA hats parading around with American flags does not exactly a Sturmabteilung make.

Conspiracy Theories From The Elders of Zion to Epstein's Youngsters

conspiracy theory epstein 9/11
Following Jeffrey Epstein's alleged suicide last week we have been deluged by a tsunami of narratives that do not adhere to the shifting official reports of his death. Presumably a few of the intimate secrets of the most powerful people on this planet will be buried with Epstein. While it is rational to believe that people powerful enough to impoverish continents or launch world wars that kill tens of millions could easily arrange the death of a single registered sex criminal in a NY prison cell, anyone who advanced such a scenario, however plausible, was immediately denounced as a 'conspiracy theorist.'

Comment: As with 9/11 and Russiagate, Epstein's 'suicide' is yet another instance where the official story is the whackiest tinfoil hat conspiracy theory of all. This essentially proves that the term has no actual explanatory power other than to identify and smear theories that are not sanctioned by the 'reality-creators'.

Putin-Macron Meeting: Glorious Summer After a Long Winter of Discontent?

French President Emmanuel Macron and wife Brigitte • Russian President Vladimir Putin
Five years is a long time in politics. In 2014, relations between Russia and the West went into a nosedive over Ukraine and Syria.

The "annexation" of Crimea, the shooting down of the Malaysian airliner, and the conflict in eastern Ukraine destroyed the partial re-establishment of normal relations which had started in 2008 with President Obama's "re-set" and Nicolas Sarkozy's rapprochement with Vladimir Putin. This included the Georgian crisis of that year, of which the French president's decision in 2010 to sell two Mistral aircraft carriers to Russia was a potent symbol. The collapse in relations as a result of the Ukraine crisis led to EU and US sanctions against Russia, and to her expulsion from the G8 group of nations, as it then was, as well as to a war of words between East and West.

Vladimir Putin's visit on Monday to the fort at Bregancon, the official summer residence of the French president, demonstrates that that period is now officially closed. On every level, the West has now abandoned its earlier hostility to Putin and Russia. First, the symbolism: President Putin spends a lot of time governing from his own summer residence in Sochi, and the invitation to the Mediterranean coast, where the atmosphere is more intimate and relaxed than in Paris, was undoubtedly a gesture to Putin's predilection for warmer climes. The fact that the meeting took place just a few days before the Biarritz summit of what is now the G7 also shows that Paris intends to include Moscow in discussing world affairs at the highest level, even if it is unlikely that Russia will be formally readmitted to that structure. Even the substance of the meeting showed how much things have changed. When Emmanuel Macron said that Russia was essential to solving various crises in the world - Iran, Ukraine, Syria, the INF Treaty - he was announcing a 180-degree change in French and Western policy.

Objective:Health # 27 - Parasite Lost: Are Icky Worm Infections Key to Our Health‌?

O:H header
One would never think that the topic of parasitic worms could be thought to require nuance. Worms are bad, anything that kills them is a good thing, end of story. But surprisingly, there has been a significant amount of research in recent years that is hinting at the idea that, in some situations, parasitic worms are actually a good thing. In fact, some attribute the loss of these worms from our digestive tracts as leading to an increase in various conditions in the west, including autoimmune conditions, asthma, Multiple Sclerosis and allergies.

There have even been a number of experiments involving the treatment of various conditions involving the deliberate infection of subjects with different types of parasites. It's known as 'helminth therapy' and, while it's not universally helpful across the board, a statistically significant number are reporting beneficial results.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look into this slightly icky but truly promising new (or very old) medical procedure. And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, as she tells us all about pets who can detect psychic phenomena!

MindMatters: Our Favorite Books, Films And Shows So Far This Year

mindmatters list
Your MindMatters hosts can't be hitting the books and reading non-fiction ALL the time! So on this week's show we'll be sharing some of the novels, movies and shows that, in our estimation, are insightful of the human condition, artful enough to be called something like literature - and entertaining enough to add a little joy to our days - and which are certainly worth discussing. And don't worry, we'll be mentioning some of the non-fiction books we've been looking at that satisfy those qualities as well, some of which we haven't discussed yet on previous shows, like the new, definitive book on the Manson murders, CHAOS: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties; a truly revolutionary book on mythology, E.J. Michael Witzel's Origins of the World's Mythologies; and two recent books on the literary nature of the New Testament gospels and the classical works they imitated.
