Plus Ultra not M-K ULTRA!!



Does That Make Me Crazy?

By Brent Erickson

“Modern psychology has a word that is probably used more than any other word in modern psychology. It is the word "maladjusted." This word is the ringing cry to modern child psychology. Certainly, we all want to avoid the maladjusted life. In order to have real adjustment within our personalities...But I say to you, my friends, as I move to my conclusion, there are certain things in our nation and in the world which I am proud to be maladjusted and which I hope all men of good-will will be maladjusted until the good societies realize. I say very honestly that I never intend to become adjusted to segregation and discrimination. I never intend to become adjusted to religious bigotry. I never intend to adjust myself to economic conditions that will take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Century of the Self -Part 1 of 4

"This series is about how those in power have used Freud's theories to try and control the dangerous crowd in an age of mass democracy." - Adam Curtis

"The Century of the Self is an acclaimed documentary by filmmaker Adam Curtis released in 2002.

Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, changed the perception of the human mind and its workings profoundly. His influence on the 20th century is widely regarded as massive. The documentary describes the impact of Freud's theories on the perception of the human mind, and the ways public relations agencies and politicians have used this during the last 100 years for their "engineering of consent".

Among the main characters are Freud himself and his nephew Edward Bernays, who was the first to use psychological techniques in advertising. He is often seen as the "father of the public relations industry". Freud's daughter Anna Freud, a pioneer of child psychology, is mentioned in the second part, as well as Wilhelm Reich, the main opponent of Freud's theories.

Along these general themes, The Century of the Self asks deeper questions about the roots and methods of modern consumerism, representative democracy and its implications. It also questions the modern way we see ourselves, the attitude to fashion and superficiality.

The business and, increasingly, the political world uses PR to read and fulfill our desires, to make their products or speeches as pleasing as possible to us. Curtis raises the question of the intentions and roots of this fact. He cites a Wall Street banker as saying "We must shift America from a needs- to a desires-culture. People must be trained to desire, to want new things, even before the old have been entirely consumed. [...] Man's desires must overshadow his needs."

Who can you trust? As author Michael Parenti notes Psychiatry is “…rather riddled with all sorts of conventional and elitist values of one kind or another. We know how psychiatry has treated women. Psychiatrists back in the antebellum days used to talk about slaves suffering from a disease called Drapetomania, and it was the irresistible impulse to run away from their slavery, and this was seen as a psychological maladjustment, and such, for generations. Right up into the 1970s, homosexuality was treated as a sickness that had to be treated in some way.”



This is not to say that Plus Ultra does not recognize the seriousness of mental illness. Here is some information on mental health, for more information please visit The Canadian Mental Health Association.

Fast Facts: Mental Health / Mental Illness

· 20% of Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime.
· Approximately 8% of adults will experience major depression at some time in their lives.
· Suicide accounts for 24% of all deaths among 15-24 year olds and 16% among 25-44 year olds.
· Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in both men and women from adolescence to middle age.
· The mortality rate due to suicide among men is four times the rate among women.
· The economic cost of mental illnesses in Canada for the health care system was estimated to be at least $7.9 billion in 1998 - $4.7 billion in care, and $3.2 billion in disability and early death.
· An additional $6.3 billion was spent on uninsured mental health services and time off work for depression and distress that was not treated by the health care system.
· Mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time through a family member, friend or colleague.

Though mental illness affects people of all ages, income levels, and cultures, there are environmental considerations to take into account as well. Depression and anxiety among children is more common with a child who has had a history of trauma, abuse, physical disability, bereavement, addiction, or an unstable family structure. In adults, the loss of a spouse is reported to be the most common cause of a depressive or anxiety episode. Women are at increased risk of depression during and within the first few months after pregnancy and chronic depression may be more common in areas afflicted with war, natural disasters, or poverty, experts say.

St John's Wort, Passionflower and Valerian are three popular herbal anti-depressants. But taking a pill, even a herbal one, isn't going to keep you healthy, so remember Plus Ultra's tips for mental health, (recommended by the Canadian Mental Health Association and others); Eat right, Keep a journal, Keep fit, Make Time for Family and Friends, Share Humour, Give and Accept Support, Meditate, Create a Meaningful Budget, and Volunteer.

MK-Ultra

"Project MKULTRA (also known as MK-ULTRA) was the code name for a CIA mind-control research program that began in the 1950s. There is much published evidence that the project involved the use of many types of drugs to manipulate peoples' mental state and to alter brain function.It was first brought to wide public attention by the U.S. Congress (in the form of the Church Committee) and a presidential commission (known as the Rockefeller Commission) and also to the U.S. Senate.

On the Senate floor in 1977, Senator Ted Kennedy said:

The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over thirty universities and institutions were involved in an 'extensive testing and experimentation' program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens 'at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.' Several of these tests involved the administration of LSD to 'unwitting subjects in social situations.' At least one death, that of Dr. Olson, resulted from these activities. The Agency itself acknowledged that these tests made little scientific sense. The agents doing the monitoring were not qualified scientific observers.
Mind Control: America's Secret War

The experiments were even exported to Canada when the CIA recruited Albany, New York doctor D. Ewen Cameron, creator of the "psychic driving" concept which the CIA found particularly interesting. Cameron described his theory on correcting schizophrenia, which consisted of erasing existing memories and rebuilding the psyche completely. He commuted to Montreal every week to work at the Allan Memorial Institute... from 1957 to 1964 to carry out MKULTRA experiments there. The CIA appears to have given him the potentially deadly experiments to carry out since they would be used on non-U.S. citizens.

In addition to LSD, Cameron also experimented with various paralytic drugs as well as electroconvulsive therapy at thirty to forty times the normal power. His "driving" experiments consisted of putting subjects into drug-induced coma for weeks at a time (up to three months in one case) while playing tape loops of noise or simple repetitive statements. His experiments were typically carried out on patients who had entered the institute for minor problems such as anxiety disorders and postpartum depression, many of whom suffered permanently from his actions.

It was during this era that Cameron became known worldwide as the first chairman of the World Psychiatric Association as well as president of the American and Canadian psychiatric associations. Cameron had also been a member of the Nuremberg medical tribunal only a decade earlier." -From

Get Smorty

In an effort to help generate a little money for my blog, I have been researching a few get paid to blog sites. Smorty seems like a great site to get paid for blogging. Why not get paid for blogging and blog advertising? They are very quick to get you started. As a matter of fact I just signed up last night and they are already paying me to write this advertisement post you are reading right now. How easy is that. Plus I get to choose what I want to advertise on my blog for money and that money will be deposited into my paypal account within a week or so. If you are a blogger like me, you know how much time it takes to post fresh new content to your site everyday. It is also very time consuming and difficult to find advertisers on your own. That is why Smorty is so smarty, they find advertisers and bloggers looking to advertise and hook them up. Why not help the advertising community and help yourself? All you need is a blog and a paypal account and you could Get Smorty too!

Plusultra Presents the complete original Dr. Seuss environmentalist cartoon, "The Lorax"



The Lorax was as much a visionary as his genius creator Dr. Seuss.
I remember this cartoon from when I was a child and I can't believe it has taken this long for the world to admit to what a Rhyme telling children's book writer was obviously aware of years ago.

We can all learn a lot from the Lorax.

What do you think about the current environmental crisis?

Bong Hits 4 Jesus


This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Alaskan high school student Joseph Frederick, who was suspended in 2002 for revealing a 14-foot banner with the words "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" on it during a parade in support of the Winter Olympic Games. This was the first major decision on student free-speech rights in over twenty year. the court determined that the student's rights had not been violated.

According to The Associated Press, the court's conservative majority found that Juneau, Alaska, high school principal Deborah Morse did not, in fact, violate student Joseph Frederick's constitutional rights when she confiscated the banner and later decided to suspend him. The decision, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, means that students could face future limits on their rights to free speech, especially when said speech could be interpreted as promoting illegal drug use (see "Could 'Bong Hits 4 Jesus' Case Chill Free Speech In Schools?").

The case was argued before the Supreme Court on March 19. Frederick, who was 18 years old at the time, was suspended for 10 days after displaying the banner during the Winter Olympics Torch Relay in 2002. Morse spotted the banner, ran across the street and snatched it from Frederick's hands. Frederick later appealed the decision to the Juneau School Board, which upheld his suspension. Frederick filed a civil-rights suit against Morse and the school board several months later, claiming they had violated his federal and state constitutional rights to free speech by imposing, and then upholding, his suspension.

Morse initially suspended Frederick for five days on the grounds that he had violated the school district's anti-drug policy. She increased the suspension to 10 days when Frederick refused to reveal the names of students who had helped him with the banner.

But Frederick has long maintained that the banner was meant to convey a nonsensical message, one he first noticed on a snowboard. He also claims he intended to use the banner as a means of asserting his fundamental, constitutionally protected right to say anything he wanted.

Morse felt otherwise. Along with other school officials, she said the phrase "bong hits" was a direct reference to smoking marijuana, and she believed the banner advocated or promoted illegal drug use. The court sided with Morse, agreeing that those who viewed the banner would interpret it as advocating or promoting illegal drug use, AP reported. The court's ruling might also provide principals the ability to restrict student speech during school events when the speech is reasonably viewed as promoting illegal drug use.

Frederick, who had not attended school the morning of the torch relay, was standing on a public sidewalk, across the street from the rest of his school, when he unfurled the banner. Students had been allowed to leave class to watch the torch make its way through Juneau en route to Salt Lake City, Utah.

"The message on Frederick's banner is cryptic," Roberts said. "But Principal Morse thought the banner would be interpreted by those viewing it as promoting illegal drug use, and that interpretation is plainly a reasonable one."


Never Mind Free speech, here at Blog Plus Ultra nonsensical comments about pot and Jesus are the only forms of speech.

I am glad I am not in High school anymore or I may be suspended for the content of this blog.






As Peter Tosh Says:

Come, come, leave business to idlers, and wisdom to fools: they have need of 'em: wit be my faculty, and pleasure my occupation, and let father Time shake his glass.

Notice how I switched plusultra with Idlers and not fools?

The only difference between plusultra and a fool is that I am not a fool AT ALL!

Speaking of quotes do you know who said "I don't do drugs. I am drugs"? And "I seated ugliness on my knee, and almost immediately grew tired of it."

The Tibetan Book of the Dead


As a young man I tuned in, turned on and read the Tibetan Book of the Dead. The title is a poor translation for "The Bardo Thodol". A translation that conjures up dark images of exotic ghosts and mysteries of a far off land. The book however is not a work of scary science fiction, It is A Buddhist text that literally translates, "liberation through hearing in the intermediate state". Traditionally the Tibetan book of the dead is recited by lamas over a dying or recently deceased person, or sometimes over an effigy of the deceased. It has been suggested that it is a sign of the influence of shamanism on Tibetan Buddhism.
The book changed not only the way I look at death even to this day, but it has more importantly helped me to look at life and recognize the beauty of everything and every moment. It taught me to have no fear and no attachment to the material world. I recommend you read this book if you are interested in Karma or spirituality or on L.S.D.
Peace,

Hocus pocus, tontus talontus, vade celeriter jubeo

"I will speak of one man... that went about in King James his time... who called himself, The Kings Majesties most excellent Hocus Pocus, and so was he called, because that at the playing of every Trick, he used to say, Hocus pocus, tontus talontus, vade celeriter jubeo, a dark composure of words, to blinde the eyes of the beholders, to make his Trick pass the more currently without discovery, because when the eye and the ear of the beholder are both earnestly busied, the Trick is not so easily discovered, nor the Imposture discerned."
-— Thomas Ady, A Candle in the Dark, 1656





And now, Steve Martin's magic act, the Great Flydini.

Who is Gia Allemand?

This is Gia Allemand!

Why Is she so popular right now?

Because Gia is featured in the latest Maxim Magazine.

Gia Allemand Started out as a ballet Dancer and beauty pageant contestant(often the winner). One Day somebody asked the young hottie to pose in a swimsuit calendar and her modelling career exploded . I think I can see why.
But What I don't understand is why her ex,(Baseball Player Carl Pavano) would cheat on her. He is one dumb Yankee pitcher.

Every little once in awhile

We dance a day away
A life flashes passed,
a soldier is shot and a baby is born
It is a Thursday and a Wednesday
A funeral and a Wedding Day

She will never fall in love again
He has never known love before
It is, It is Simply Natural
Maybe God is blind,
But God is funny

Wake up in the morning
Laugh at the people
cry to yourself and the mess you're in
Sing a song and walk it off
It is not an alcohol hangover
It is Life

Life Beats you up one more time
Kicks you in the Nutz
Hurts you until you are numb and bored
and offers a prize,
Love in the afternoon
and every once in awhile,
Everything is Okay

Boogie chillum


I met the man. He wore a turban and drove a limousine. I was smoking weed on a mushroom shaped bench in summer at the park. The park is where I have been playing soccer for 9 years, most evenings in a pickup game.
He had bare feet drove a limo and was wearing emerald green silk pants, a sash and red shirt. I knew he was here for the same reason as me. To play soccer. We were the only two people in the park and I was still smoking a big fat joint spliff. I was wearing a T-shirt that had a picture of this guy who looked just like the sikh man in front of me. On the shirt however, the man wore pointed shoes and was smoking hash in a pipe. The real sikh obviously noticed this fact and appeared angered by the image as well as my apparent obliviousness to smoking pot in such a public place. In his eyes I knew I was low class. Low- class, but intersting, I mean it must have struck him as odd that the man on my shirt literally appeared to be himself. Anyway, I said " are you here to play soccer?" he said
"Yes, where is everybody?"
I said, "I know where they are(I knew that everybody who normally played here were at another park across town tonite) Do you want to go?"
he said "Yes, I will drive you if you show me" I finished a final nice draw on my outrageously large joint,put it out and we got in his limo. I was well stoned(I rolled the joint earlier expecting at least 4 or 5 other of the soccer players to join in. I forgot tonite everybody was trying out for a team and there was a scrimmage game going on at the other field.)
The limo driver told me many reasons why I should not smoke marijuana as I spent the 15 minute ride quietly enjoying the excitement as I rode in a beautiful long white Limousine through the streets of Winnipeg.
ARRIVIN', and STYLIN' I yelled as i Got out of the luxury vehicul, pumping my arms in the air, running on the field all eyes were on me. Who is this guy? and what is Dave doing in a limo? was the astonished look on the crowds eyes. Many of the players were poor refugees from worn torn parts of the world such as Sudan, Sierra Leone, Iraq, others were from Chile, Peru, Honduras and Mexico. So, the site of this cocky white boy appearing in such fine style definitely got me noticed, and I was immediately picked to play on Team B. Team A played together often and were a legitimate team in a 1st division league. Team B was comprised of a bunch of us from the park who played together for fun, we were not organized, but are talent was pretty good. We were still the underdogs for this match up by far and quickly gave up a goal. I was no longer feeling so cocky when we were down 2-0 at the half. Our team talked strategy for the second half and I had another quick joint. We managed to tie the score up with 2 beatiful goals from our best player. He was tall for a soccer player 6 foot 10 from Sudan, But he had great speed and ball control, what a gifted athlete. anyway the momentum had swung to our side as the legitimate team was yelling at each other and in disbelief that they could be losing to a bunch of unorganised soccer players from the park. That is when it happened. We got a corner kick, and I stayed well back from all the action in front of the net. My teamate spotted me right away and gave me the perfect pass. I saw it coming and kicked that ball so hard, BOOM it flew through the air almost as in slow motion GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL! I scored! the winning goal yet. I could not believe it as our team all jumped on me at midfield. I was screaming "Thats what im talkin about! oh yeah That's what I'm talkin about", and that is what I am talking about. A great Day, great limo ride and great goal. Good times for plusultra

Should Water be a
Human Right?


By Brent Erickson

"Til taught by pain, men really know not what good water is worth."
From "Don Juan" by Byron

Every eight seconds a child dies from lack of clean water. The earth’s fresh water is being depleted so fast that by the year 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population will be living with some amount of water insecurity and one-third will have no access to clean water at all. In 2001 even U.S President George Bush remarked that; “In Texas, water is more valuable than oil.”.

Taking advantage of the global water crisis is corporate America. Although over five million people die every year from lack of fresh water, according to Fortune Magazine the annual profits of the water industry are over $400 Billion U.S, substantially higher than those of the pharmaceutical industry. Despite record profits, water corporations are not satisfied, only about ten percent of the world’s fresh water has been privatized and now they want the rest. Transnational corporations are working to keep water treated like oil, as a commodity sold for profit.

Thankfully, citizen groups around the world are fighting back. From The Congo to Canada, Ecuador to England, people are struggling to have water recognized under international law as a human right. The UN committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights has issued definitive statements on the human right to water; "Water is a limited natural resource and a public good fundamental for life and health. The human right to water is indispensable for leading a life in human dignity. It is a prerequisite for the realization of other human rights.”

Universal access to fresh water would actually save governments around the world billions of dollars, according to the Friends of the Earth’s Report “Nature For Sale: The Impacts of Privatizing Water and Biodiversity”. The report estimates that access to clean water and sanitation would save $125 billion a year in direct medical expenses and other costs related to preventable water-related diseases.

However, the Canadian government, (without a word of parliamentary or public debate) has taken a stance against the human right to water. Canada was the only country to take this position at a recent UN Human Rights Commission meeting, saying: "Canada does not accept that there is a right to drinking water and sanitation."

In co-operation with Google Video, Plus Ultra Presents: Ya Don't Miss the Water and Maude Barlow: Looming Global Water Crisis, two extraordinary video's on the issue of (the corporate theft of the worlds) water. To learn more about this important topic please visit; The Council of Canadians.org.

143 is a very romantic number?

According to Wikipedia, The number One hundred and forty three is Among other things, a common text message representing the words, "I Love You" (I = 1 Letter, Love = 4 Letters, You = 3 Letters).

Call me old fashioned, but does abbreviating the three most tender and personal words in the English language with a number not seem very non tender and impersonal. I think it is a telling comment on today's society if nothing else. It seems our feelings and emotions are becoming less human and more statistical, as if the young people of the world have lost the connection to their true and passionate hearts and replaced it with something as plain and ordinary as a number.

Maybe I am over thinking this too much, but can you imagine on your wedding anniversary telling your spouse over a romantic candlelit dinner, "143" . Or on Valentines day sending a bouquet of flowers with a note that reads, "143". Worst yet, imagine at the climax of making wonderful sensuous love with your partner screaming out "143, 143, Oh God 143". It just does not have the same effect does it?

To all of my readers out there, remember I, Plus Ultra love all of you and have a beautiful day.

Zeitgeist is originally a German expression that means "the mind of the age", literally translated as "time (Zeit) mind (Geist)". It denotes the intellectual and cultural climate of an era. There has never before been such a tool like the google search engine to measure the pulse of popular culture in the collective consciousness.
On May 22, 2007, the original Google Zeitgeist for Google.com was replaced by Hot Trends, a dynamic feature in Google Trends. I Visited Hot Trends today for a glimpse into what people are searching for on Google. I have labelled some of the top 100 search queries and tagged them. Using all of these words in bold and some of my own I will try to write a zeitgeist story for you.

Immature poets imitate mature poets steal . I may not win a russian literary award nor a mystery award for this pinocchio whale of a tale. Some of my dyslexic readers may confuse it with spam level teerts but it is really street level maps. It know it sounds like I smoked too much pot au, but the truth is i missed the beef recall and may be suffering from a bucolic form of mad cow disease. The last thing I remember was celebrating with all of my friends from the bucolic community at a puerto rican day parade and waking up barenaked in america. The worst part is dirty found panty crickets on my balls the size of the largest bush in albania. It was bad enough to even make paul davis crazy. I realize this story is becoming curiouser and curiouser, but the risibility is no mistake. The words are flowing like the beautiful notes from the pianist rubinstein s piano. According to the esp test cards I bought from the father of henry ii, Fish Magic or more precisely fish magic twittering machine is going to replace the old mgm motto. The change will coincide with the release of the new John malkovich movie, "red white and boom". The film takes place in the capital of valais canton , but was shot entirely in delavan wisconsin . Loosely based on the prefontaine classic novel, " the mysterious island captain".

***** Booz2Go alcohol powder *****


spacer


Just add water - students invent alcohol powder


From the land of marijuana cafes, Legal Prostitution, and windmills, the Dutch have done it again!


According to Reuters, "Students have developed powdered alcohol which they say can be sold legally to minors.
The most recent news in Booze is called Booz2Go, It comes in 20-gramme packets that cost 1-1.5 euros ($1.35-$2).
Simply mix it with water and you have a Kool-Aid type drink with about 3 percent alcohol.
"We are aiming for the youth market. They are really more into it because you can compare it with Bacardi-mixed drinks," 20-year-old Harm van Elderen told Reuters.
Van Elderen and four classmates at Helicon Vocational Institute, about an hour's drive from Amsterdam, came up with the idea as part of their final-year project.
"Because the alcohol is not in liquid form, we can sell it to people below 16," said project member Martyn van Nierop.
The legal age for drinking alcohol and smoking is 16 in the Netherlands.
In Germany, alcopops -- sweet drinks containing alcohol and in powder form -- caused quite a stir when launched on to the market. Alcohol powder, classified as a flavoring, was also sold in the United States three years ago.
The students said companies interested in making the product commercially could avoid taxes because the alcohol was in powder form. A number of companies are interested, they said."

Remember the good old days

When you could stylishly order your cocaine in a glass


And use cocaine for toothaches
















Heroin came in a bottle from Bayer & Company








and Cannabis Indica (Marijuana) powder was being produced by Laboratory of Merrel Company.



















No wonder old people have such bad memories. They must have all been high out of their minds and burned all of their brain cells way back in the day.

Plusultra gallery of the surreal part 5 (Jeffrey Micheal Harp)

The Optical Delusion Known as Deacon Trafford




Jeffrey Micheal Harp at hippopotamouse.com
creates what he calls Authentic works of Victorian surrealism.
He was born in Texas in 1973 and grew up surrounded by art. The surreal art of Rene Magritte was an especially big influence on Mr. Harp's creative visions. He has come to develop a puzzling and dream like style with digital imagery that appears both antique and avant-garde yet has qualities that are quite modern and of the now.

Operacion Plus Ultra

What is Plusultra? I am Plusultra.

What is the movie operacion plusultra?

Pleasant, sweet movie of a group of children who, as an award for personal heroism or good works, get to travel throughout Spain and abroad. Naschy worked behind the scenes in this movie, and appears briefly as an extra, being most evident in the film's opening credits walking next to one of the selected children. He also appears (masked) in a hospital scene playing a physician. Film composer Anton Garcia Abril would later score several classic Spanish horror films, including Klimovsky's LA NOCHE DE WALPURGIS (Naschy's fifth Waldemar Daninsky movie, known in the US as THE WEREWOLF VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMAN) and De Ossorio's Blind Dead films.

Weird Al Subterranean homesick blues

Bob Dylan's classic video Subterranean homesick blues get's the Weird Al Yankovic treatment and is done completely in palindromes(Spells the same thing Forward and Backward). Simply Genius lyrics like,
"Oozy rat in a sanitary zoO" and " lonely tylenol" seem to make just as much or even more sense than many of the esoteric songs Dylan wrote himself.
