This beautiful video was shared with me recently and I felt i had to share it with everyone else! Check it out :)
Biochemist Jeff Schmitt shares what he learned about wellness from Amazon shamans, and what his knowledge might mean to a modern audience.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxAsheville, where “x” = an independently organized TED event. At TEDxAsheville, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized
This is the sequel to “The Tree of Life” series, and I recommend watching it prior to this series, as some information in The Tree of Life is a prerequisite for comprehending The Sorcerer’s Tales. The Sorcerer’s Tales series goes over various mystics (sorcerers, shamans, practitioners of the occult, lamas, etc.) throughout our recorded history. It then goes over some evidence on how they achieved their enlightened state, and how you can accomplish a similar enlightenment. I also share some of my personal experiences and how they are relative to everything that has been illustrated in my videos. The next series will focus on Mystery Schools.
17 year-old Joshua Alicea introduces his series in a brand new way! This is the first part of “The Theory of World Peace” special and you can expect to be blown away by a abundant selection of visuals and sound tracks that harmonize in a compelling way.
I Hope you enjoy and as always, thank you!
P.S. Please share this video with as many people as you can if this has had any positive impact at all in your life.
Ancient Tomorrow is a documentary by our friends JJ Yosh and Ramone Govea! We wanted to share with you what they are working on! :D
Ancient Tomorrow is a 2-hour documentary that follows real investigators on an actual expedition around the world to investigate the mysteries surrounding ancient power plants that may be the key for tomorrow’s future.
What If We’re Not The First Civilization With Electricity?
Rappelling down Fossil Falls
Over the last few decades, scientists and archaeologists have found evidence of electricity use at ancient sites around the world, from Egypt to South America, suggesting that these people were more technically advanced than our culture today.
Is it possible that ancient civilizations could have once harnessed electricity in a highly advanced, eco-friendly way? And if so, why has it been hidden for so long?
In a couple of months, my team and I will embark on an incredible adventure all over the world, where we will investigate the mysteries surrounding ancient power plants that have been kept secret for thousands of years.
Exploring forbidden ruins
Join us as we go where no man has ever dared to go before – climbing the highest mountains, descending into the darkest caverns, diving into the murkiest waters, and even crossing into forbidden sites that have been mysteriously blacked out on Google Earth, in our search to find the truth.
It’s an experience like nothing else as we take our viewers on the journey of a lifetime to help us solve mankind’s greatest mystery.
What we find will change the way we think about history, our world, and our place in the Universe.

From the moment we are born into this world, to the day we die we are subjected to numerous forms of control, from many different sources. If you are a free thinking individual, this should come as no surprise to you. Many of them are obvious, and plain as day, and some are more subtle, and effect you on a subconscious level in contrast to their obvious counterparts. They range from logos plastered in front of you daily, to the preacher calling out that doom is upon us and that Jesus is the only way. From the corporate billboards selling you their image worship and egocentricity, to the TV mind-slave wave that robs people of their potential in the ever changing now. From the Lawmakers shuffling away trillions in secret bailouts, to the numerous growing needs of the ever growing poor class. All of this is built to keep us controlled like cattle, and keep us from realizing beauty in our world. To keep us from realizing our potential in this world.
These control structures are used in many ways, to keep humans down, and dis-empowered. They have been alongside humanity for a very, very long time, and it’s hard to say when they were first implemented. While it may be an interesting point, ultimately knowing it does nothing to change the situation we are in now. All we need to do is open our eyes and acknowledge what’s happening around us. We have been born into a slave system that deludes us with the illusion that we really are free, and trades our personal freedoms for “security blankets” whether we like it or not. This system asks not our permission, and demands our subservience.
These control structures are enforced by one main emotion: Fear. For fear wraps itself around the hearts of people and digs in deep. Fear of death, fear of loss, fear of isolation, fear of change. But as wise men once said “There is nothing to fear but fear itself”. The only power fear has over us, is the power that we let it have. We have the power right now to throw off our shackles, and claim freedom from fear. Yet so far, fear has worked quite well for controlling humanity, and keeping us from freeing ourselves from it’s enslavement. Fear however is not an absolute power like love, and love will challenge fear time and time again, and love will more often than not come out victorious. For nothing changes fear like love. You can’t dampen true love with fear. That’s like going into a house full of people who love each other deeply, and trying to trick them into fighting. If they really love one another, and are in a harmonious relationship, they will see what you are doing, and they will throw you from their house.
With that being said, I am now going to begin to touch on some specific control structures. There is a lot I could elaborate on with each topic. I simply don’t have room here, so if anyone feels I haven’t touched well enough on one of these topics, feel free to email me in regards to what you think I should go into further depth about.
Religion is a far spread control structure that uses fear. They want to keep you afraid about hell, or loosing your family to it. Fear of hell, makes people are easy to control, and it puts them in a state where they will often do whatever it is their religion demands they do to avoid this damnation. Yet what loving god would condemn his people to eternal suffering for taking advantage of the freedom of choice he insisted they have? That’s not love. Any god that would torture it’s people for disobeying it’s doctrines is the exact opposite of what love is. Love means loving no matter what. Not scorning them for living a life outside of servitude and worship. To me that seems less what a god would do, and more what men would create to control other men with. To quote HP Lovecraft “If religion were true it’s followers would not try to bludgeon their young into an artificial conformity; but would merely insist on their unbending quest for truth, irrespective of artificial backgrounds or practical consequences.”
Government on the other hand, is a newer kind of control structure. It follows a system similar to the old style monarchy with one key difference. It allows the people it controls to believe that they have a choice in who leads them. It deludes them to thinking that rights are given to people by governments, not as a right that all living beings possess naturally. It deludes people into thinking we must adhere to this control structure, and pass it on endlessly to our children in a cycle of continuation. Democracy is simply one man holding two puppets, with the goal of enslaving your mind. The word itself Government broken down is composed from the words Govern and Mental. Govern meaning: to control, and mental meaning the mind, the meaning isn’t exactly hidden. We have been lead to believe that the government is here to keep us safe, and a needed precaution keeping the world from destroying itself, when in fact the most destruction in this world is done on their behalf. The concept of government itself is not negative if used in a way that truly promotes peace, but sadly our system supports domination.
Education systems are another common form of control. Many education systems teach people to blindly accept facts presented to them from official sources, and conditions them to memorize and repeat those “Facts”. These “Facts” will lock in one idea of reality to the individual’s mind, and tells them to use only that one way of thinking. Now, not all education does this. Some of it teaches us integral skills we will need for life, such as communication, and cooperation. But these concepts are taught to us along with controlling concepts, so that we will have less of a chance of noticing what’s indoctrinating, and what’s not. We will be taught that we are nothing but bodies of flesh, and that there is no such thing as UFO’s, spirits, or the like. Now, we don’t know for a fact that they don’t exist, so why do we teach it? Because it’s not about what we know for fact or not; it’s about keeping people thinking in a way that keeps them weak, and dependent. If we truly wanted to empower our students, we would teach them to think outside the box, and reward them for their individuality, not assimilate them, and change who they are.
Some of these sources of control can be helpful; Like a parent who takes your away your keys when you begin to consume alcohol. This is an example of a more positive form of control we implement on our society, and shows that exercising control in some ways is a very healthy practice. We do generally enjoy some degrees of control in this existence, otherwise we would be living in a chaotic swarm. After all, we like having enough control over ourselves to stockpile food for winter for when there will be less around. It works for anything else in the same regard. Like most things, in moderation it can be a helpful concept that makes us happier and healthier. In excess it can drain they joy out of life, by attempting to control everything that happens. Life feels complete with a bit of chaos, and random chance. After all, who wants to live a life of orderly routine, with no change or free flow?
What I have listed here are but a few examples of the many control structures that control the current paradigm. If you are interested in learning more on this, I suggest you do your own research into it, looking at independent media sources that aren’t controlled by the main structures in this world. Some great movies to watch are Zeitgeist, Thrive, The Esoteric Agenda, and any of David Wilcock’s speeches found in plenty on youtube. But go beyond this, and follow what trails come to you. Let life branch off and take you where you need to be. But remember; we live in wonderland. Seek the rabbit hole, and you might just find how out deep it goes.
