Transcendence Diaries

About this Page

Haven't stopped by in a while and afraid you've missed something? No problem. That's exactly what this page is for. The JUST PUBLISHED page features the latest entries PUBLISHED in descending order, as opposed to the HOME PAGE, which features the most recent entries written and published. Because the team is working 24/7 on transcribing and editing tens of thousands of entries from the last 25 years -- some of them never before published -- oftentimes entries that are months or even years old will be published for the very first time. Every effort is made to keep the original date that we believe a Transcendence Diaries entry was written on when adding it. If you only go to the HOME PAGE, you'd never see an entry that was written ten years ago for example. Even though it may have just been discovered, edited and published yesterday. That's what this page is for. Newly published entries -- regardless of how long ago they were written -- are specially tagged JUST PUBLISHED so they appear here. That way you won't miss a thing.

    It’s Not a Conspiracy if Everybody Knows About it

It’s Not a Conspiracy if Everybody Knows About it

I received a message this weekend from someone with a few questions regarding the potential of a "conspiracy" around the upcoming US presidential election. I don't get a chance to respond to all messages I receive. I would say that the process is almost "random" at this point. Some just catch my eye. Many i simply never get a chance [...]

    New Cosmos Big On Visuals But Something Missing

New Cosmos Big On Visuals But Something Missing

We're three episodes into the global premier of the eagerly anticipated remake of Carl Sagan's scientific documentary masterpiece, Cosmos. Word of it spread quickly through the various worlds of the literati and public alike. Over thirty years have passed. So.... Not only have scientific discoveries evolved, almost exponentially, leaving much new to cover, but so too has the technology [...]

Something Special is Happening

Had to share this post from someone i saw on Facebook early this morning. Woke up at 3:45 am and couldn't get back to sleep. So i surfed for a while. I usually avoid religious posts. I don't Like them or UnLike them. I just don't pay attention to them. Any kind of public religious zealotry tends to turn me [...]

Don’t be Fooled Again — Keep Taking Nutritional Supplements

Mainstream media outlets such as The Today Show were abuzz this morning due to a new editorial published in this week's Annals of Internal Medicine entitled "Enough is Enough: Stop Wasting Money on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements". The editorial was based on three studies that just concluded looking at the effects of multivitamins on preventing heart attacks and cancer, as well as improving [...]

    Regarding Same Sex Marriage Tolerance Runs Both Ways

Regarding Same Sex Marriage Tolerance Runs Both Ways

An unusually strange and powerful experience at church today. I have always maintained that if i had to choose only one thing that I "like the most" out of all the various rituals we participate in during the average church service, it would be "the sermon". Sure the social aspect offers benefits, as does the variety of service opportunities. But [...]

    Israel: Day One Maybe…

Israel: Day One Maybe…

We may be here. Not sure. The last five days have been a maddening whirlwind. Having spent them living in various airports around the world, we haven't showered, slept or changed clothes since Friday. Today is most likely Tuesday. The primary reason being that Delta Airlines had booked us on a straight non-stop flight from New York to Tel Aviv, [...]

Trying to Get to Israel Through Prague

It's Monday I think. Or Tuesday. Honestly I have no idea. Last time I was able to post here, we were stuck inside of the JFK airport in New York. Since then, Delta Airlines has flown our small group all over the planet in it's quest to get about 18 of us to Israel. Evidently one flight got cancelled. The [...]

Israel Are We There Yet?

It's either Sunday or Monday... Not sure. I've been in airports for days now. In the same clothes since Friday morning. Time tends to bend in on itself and convolute. Sunday morning --seems like days ago -- I awoke to find myself still in Manhattan even though I had flown to New York on Friday night just as a layover [...]

Israel By Way of New York, Maybe

Well... This has certainly been one hell of a rollercoaster ride the last 24 hours. Finally pulled into NYC last night at about 1am. Talk about tired. But that was nothing compared to what was to come. I know this now because it's nearly 1am Saturday night/Sunday morning. Took a car to Boo Boo Kitty's apt in Midtown last night. [...]

Headed to Israel

Friday October 4th 2013 On the plane now. Have to fly from Seattle, WA to Newark, NJ, then take a car into the City. Will be staying with Boo Boo Kitty, at her apartment in Midtown, for the night and then meeting the group tomorrow at the JFK. From what I understand we are flying directly to Tel Aviv. A non-stop flight, which [...]

    Rethinking The Classics

Rethinking The Classics

Someone recently brought up in conversation a request for some suggestions on what "classics" she should read this summer, referring to her high school and college years and alluding to not necessarily having read every book that was required of her as perhaps some other students might have. That's one area of college that I actually excelled in and enjoyed, [...]

Hype Is Dead

Scroll down below this post just to have a look at the email that was forwarded to me so you have a rough idea of what I am referring to in this post. What you'll see is a very typical "2000s"-type ad that promises the moon and stars to prospective entrepreneurs looking for leads. What they're selling is not important. [...]

Selling Out or Buying In? Or How I Lost My Soul And Made a Fortune in the Process

I just listened to the last but unreleased Broken Spectacles album, the one called Aftermath. The one that took us two years to make, a year and half of which was building the recording studio. Recording the album probably only took us a few months at the most. I hadn't heard it in 15 years. The Grey Wolf just sent it [...]

If I could plug my brain into a machine

In the subway. Ipod blaring in my ears. I can’t hear a thing around me. just this pounding music. so I'm watching everyone.... I see a strange response around me from many people. I take off an earbud and hear that we are now stuck in the middle of a fucking tunnel two full stories underneath the ground and we [...]
