Film Review of Life of Pi by Chartreuse at Heypressto

Film Review by Chartreuse at Heypressto: ‘Life of Pi'. PG. DVD release from  12 March, 2013. Produced by Dune Entertainment, Ingenious Media, Haishang Films. Distributed by 20th Century Fox. Winner of 4 Academy Awards, Golden Globe award, BAFTA award 2013. http://www.lifeofpimovie.com/ Available from Amazon.

On the first viewing, shortly after Life of Pi opened, it was perhaps not surprising that my movie buddy and four others had the screen space to ourselves. The Hindi vocals that open the lush, soft, golden light on a succession of exotic animals evoke peace and timelessness. The viewer is hypnotised into engagement with the story of an Indian family living in Pondicherry after Independence was won in 1963.

The Consciousness Revolution by Ian Legg

Bruce Lipton speaking about consciousness! The human brain has an estimated 100 billion neurons. Each neuron consists of a vast collection of atoms and even vaster collection of subatomic particles. It operates like a computer but is much more powerful. Most office computers have the capacity to community with outside computers such as vast data banks, through a "modem" connected to a telephon line. The human mind, under certain circumstances, appears to have this same capacitiy. It appears that it can be triggered to interact with other minds and universal forces. Famed psychologist Karl Jung called this the "Universal Consciousness". World famous Biologist Rupert Sheldrake refers to it as the morphogenetic field. We call it The Super Mind

Consciousness: What is Consciousness? Part 2

Byron Katie speaking about 'the One' 
Consciousness is A Complex Issue!
According to neurobiologist William Calvin, the human mind (in all likelihood, the seat of consciousness), located in the brain, is so complex that we have only just begun to understand bits and pieces of it. It is remarkable that despite the advancements of ancient civilizations in India, China, Mesopotamia and Greece, the discovery of the crucial importance of the brain as the seat of thought and action did not feature in human knowledge until barely two centuries ago. The navel, the liver and the heart were revered instead by different cultures, at various times.


The Right Moment in Time - Ancient Toltec Practices

Many people know of the work of Carlos Castaneda and about his training with a Yaqui (Man of Knowledge) from Mesoamerica. He brought forth, to the Western world, a glimmer of the Toltec Shamanistic path in the 1970’s. But now, for the first time in history, the fullness of a Toltec Shamanistic path is being presented -- teachings, ceremonies, practices, postures, dances, philosophy, prophecy and an in-depth understanding of the mathematics of the cosmos and how this all relates to human consciousness and the Mesoamerican calendars.  You will find it all in this new book by Sergio Magaña Ocelocoyotl called, 2012 – 2021, The Dawn of the Sixth Sun - The Path of Quetzalcoatl.
