SOTT Focus: MindMatters: Do NPCs Have an Inner Monologue? Discussing the 5 Pristine Inner Experiences

Self-talk. Visualizations. Bodily awareness. Unconscious thought processes. In our day-to-day course of existence our minds assimilate, respond and react to any number of stimuli from within - and without. But how often do we stop to consider just how we do this and what faculties of apprehension are actually put to use? And do we even have a framework, vocabulary and level of awareness from which to do it?

Inner speech (inner monologue), inner vision, sensory awareness, emotions and unsymbolized thinking are all categories that, according to psychologist and researcher Russell T. Hurlburt, can help one come to know what one's "pristine inner experience" is. Along with such a framework and the research inspired by it come many questions. What does it mean to be "in the moment"? Do all people use all categories of inner experience with the same frequency? How are we used to describing our inner experiences to ourselves and to others? Were personages like Gurdjieff on to something when he encouraged people to observe themselves?

Join us this week on MindMatters as we question the many assumptions, presuppositions, and mediations that come between cognizance of individual inner experience, and a relative state of unawareness regarding just what makes us tick.

SOTT Focus: The Burqa Ban Question

Warning: I'm going to say a number of things in this post that will upset a variety of people on both sides of this issue. Don't get your undies in a twist at the beginning; read to the end.

I've given a lot of thought to the hijab issue in the past, and now that Marine LePen says she wants to ban them in France, maybe it is time to think about it some more and try to clarify my thinking. First, let me define a 'society'. It is a group of interdependent people distinguished by mutual interests, participation in characteristic relationships, shared institutions, common culture, activities and interests.

Having said that, let me say that, as a Western woman, my gut reaction to the hijab WITHIN Western society, is quite negative; it doesn't belong there. It seems to express and represent a deep shame about a woman being a woman. It is part of a larger set of rather misogynistic cultural norms that are generally incomprehensible to the Western mind. A lot can be written about this, but that would make this too lengthy. I can just say shortly that it is a practice that originated with the idea that the hijab or burqa is designed to prevent men from looking 'perversely' at women. A woman, simply by being female, is something that must be hidden because she can incite negative outcomes in society by her mere existence. Men, at the same time, are too weak and hapless to resist. From my perspective, that attitude is insulting to both men and women.

SOTT Focus: The Suspect Body Count: The Death Toll in Gaza is Much Higher Than We're Being Told

gaza dead
The number of slain Palestinians in Gaza, including those believed to be Hamas cadres, has gone through a series of public recalibrations in recent weeks, as Israel's reshuffled war cabinet has struggled to minimize international rage at the slaughter there. The reduced body count was little more than a sideshow because the Israeli offensive is continuing in Gaza with no signs of the ceasefire that the Biden administration has been desperately seeking.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Israel-Hezbollah On The Brink As Putin Visits North Korea

israel hezbollah houthis putin north korea
Israel continues its slow-motion genocide of Palestinians, this week brazenly placing an injured Palestinian on the bonnet of a military jeep as a human shield, targeting more humanitarian aid workers, bombing more refugee camps, and bombing more UN buildings. Will Israel soon also invade Lebanon to do to Hezbollah what it has done to most of Gaza: wipe Lebanon off the map?

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall look ahead to what promise to be 'furiously' interesting French and British elections, review Putin's visit to North Korea - his first in 24 years - and its geopolitical significance, and note that the Houthis of war-torn Yemen are STILL successfully blockading the Red Sea from shipping bound for Israel or the West.

SOTT Focus: Russia and the DPRK: Traditions of Friendship and Cooperation Through the Years

Comment: This article was published in the North Korean Rodong Sinmun newspaper.

putin kim korea
On the eve of my state visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, I would like to address the Korean and foreign audience of the Rodong Sinmun newspaper to share my thoughts on the prospects for partnership between our states and on their role in the modern world.

The relations of friendship and neighbourliness between Russia and the DPRK, based on the principles of equality, mutual respect and trust, go back more than seven decades and are rich in glorious historical traditions. Our peoples cherish the memory of their difficult joint struggle against Japanese militarism and honour the heroes who fell in it. In August 1945, Soviet soldiers, fighting shoulder to shoulder with Korean patriots, defeated the Kwantung Army, liberated the Korean peninsula from colonisers, and opened the way for the Korean people to develop independently. As a symbol of combat brotherhood of the two nations, a monument was erected in 1946 on the Moranbong Hill in the centre of Pyongyang to commemorate the liberation of Korea by the Red Army.

The Soviet Union was the first among the world's states to recognise the young Democratic People's Republic of Korea and establish diplomatic relations with it. As early as on March 17, 1949, when the founder of the DPRK, Comrade Kim Il Sung, paid his first visit to Moscow, the USSR and the DPRK signed the Agreement on Economic and Cultural Cooperation, establishing a legal framework for further strengthening of their bilateral interaction. Our country helped the Korean friends to build their national economy, create a healthcare system, develop science and education, and train professional administrative and technical staff.

SOTT Focus: Macron Allegedly Considers Adopting Emergency Powers After July 7th Election Results

Macron Jupiter
Faced with potential governmental deadlock after the July 7th general election results in France, Emmanuel Macron could resign, but he has a second option: to resort to Article 16 of the French Constitution, which would give him full autocratic powers. According to inside sources, Macron has discussed this possibility with several people close to him. The Élysée Palace has, however, denied this.

This episode is the third of a six part series where Jay and Hunter interview Laura Knight-Jadczyk, a world-renowned paranormal researcher who authored a groundbreaking series called The Wave and founded a metaphysical research community called The Cassiopaean Experiment.

The conversation covers a variety of fascinating topics, ranging from reality creation and the limitations of "New Age" techniques like affirmations or mantras, to the chaotic nature of the realm border crossing and the potential influence of 4th density beings through emerging technologies like artificial intelligence.

Tune in if you're interested in expanding your understanding of the metaphysical realm and the interconnected nature of our existence.
"We are in the middle of the wave, and changing realities is violent and chaotic. There are people who are going to be soul smashed. But at the same time, the Cassiopaeans have said, 'What a glorious way to go to the fourth density.'" - Laura Knight Jadczyk

Flashback SOTT Focus: The Most Dangerous Cult in The World!

The Dome of the Rock mosque in Jerusalem

Comment: Given that many conservatives today, including Donald Trump, support Israel, we thought it time to republish this article, first posted 19 years ago.

July 30, 2005
During the Reformation era the Biblical Hebrews came to be associated with their modern co-religionists. At the same time it became popular belief among Protestant adherents that the Jews scattered in their present dispersion would be regathered in Palestine in order to prepare for the Second Coming of Chirst... The Old Testament not only became the most popular literature for the Protestant laity, but also the source book for general historical knowledge. This is the moment when a process of historical manipulation began. -- Regina Sharif, Non-Jewish Zionism

Who will the Antichrist be? ... Of course he will be Jewish. -- Jerry Falwell

Prophetically, the only thing that could prevent it (a Jewish holocaust) is Israel's repentance. - Dwight Pentecost in an interview with Paul Boyer

The creation of Israel in 1948 means "a return at last, to the biblical land from which the Jews were driven so many hundreds of years ago... The establishment of the nation of Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy and the very essence of its fulfillment." -- Former president Jimmy Carter

As a Christian, I see the return of Jews to the Holy Land but one sign of the coming of the messianic age in which all humans will enjoy the benefits of an ideal society. -- Former Senator Mark Hatfield

For the first time in more than 2,000 years, Jerusalem, being in the hands of the Jews, gives the student of the Bible a thrill and a renewed faith in the accuracy and validity of the Bible. -- L. Nelson Bell, editor, Christianity Today

The Rev. Clyde Lott, Canton, Miss., a Pentecostal minister, interprets passages of the Bible to say that a third Jewish temple must rise in Jerusalem before the Second Coming can happen... Lott is producing perfect red heifers, virginal cows "without spot" that could be sacrificed to produce ashes for ritual use in the future temple. For that to happen, Muslim shrines like the Dome of the Rock would have to be knocked down... Lott is convinced that God will attend to this in due time. -- The New York Times, December 27, 1998

Extremist rabbis call for return of animal sacrifice

CNN/Associated Press
Wed, 28 Feb 2007 17:23 EST

Jerusalem-- A fringe group of extremist rabbis wants to resume the biblical practice of animal sacrifice at an explosive religious site in Jerusalem, members said Wednesday.

The request defied centuries of religious bans and triggered a stiff protest from a Muslim leader.

When the Jewish Temples stood in the Old City of Jerusalem more than 2,000 year ago, animal sacrifice was a centerpiece of the religion. After the destruction of the Temples, sacrifices were banned and rabbinical teachings took their place as the focus of Judaism.

Now a group, called the "Re-established Sanhedrin" after the Temple-era religious high court, has decided to buy some sheep and try to find one that is ritually perfect for sacrifice, with an eye toward resuming the practice at the Jerusalem site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount.

The site is the most hotly disputed in the Middle East, home today to the Al Aqsa Mosque compound, where Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven. [...]

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Macron Defiant in Face of Democratic Revolt

macron election ukraine switzerland
Chaotic scenes in Parisian politics last week as French president Emmanuel Macron, the moment EU parliament election results were announced, called a snap election 'to defeat the far-right'. But given the trouncing his party received in the former, how can he expect to fare better in the latter? Our hot take: Macron will remain in the Élysée, refusing to take the hint that the people want him gone.

Meanwhile, the stand-off between the West and Russia over Ukraine remains as tense as ever. Putin has stated his terms for a settlement, and the West has rejected it out of hand, promising instead more and bigger weapons deliveries to Ukraine. Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić is predicting 'major war in 3-4 months', and the signs all certainly seem to point that way.

But will some global 'reality shift' intervene - a new pandemic? An economic crisis? Natural disasters? All this and more on NewsReal!
