Ch’an Master Caotang siad:

There is nothing special to leadership – essentially it is a matter of controlling the evils of biased information and autocracy. Do not just go by whatever is said to you first – then the obsequities of petty people seeking favour will not be able to confuse you.

After all, the feelings of a group of people are not one, and objective reason is hard to see. You should investigate something to see its benefit or harm, examine whether it is appropriate and suitable or not; then after that you may carry it out.

True Record of Sushan (Song Dynasty)

The Chinese Buddhist monastic community is referred to as a ‘Sangha’ (Sanskrit for ‘spiritual community’), whereby men and women form a voluntary association premised upon following a strict set of rules known as the ‘Vinaya Discipline’. Within this community, there is ‘equality’ between all members, with the leaders being those who have followed these rules for the longest times. This is because such people are thought to have more experience at adhering to the Vinaya Discipline (which includes celibacy and vegetarianism), and are therefore able to effectively advise all others through the difficult times they my face in their practice. As those with little experience have less to share, they are not considered leaders whilst more experienced practitioners live in the vicinity. Of course, this is a relative matter depending upon the size of population of a community, and the length of time it has existed, and the quality of the masters (male or female) that have led it. Those who cannot keep the Vinaya Discipline (of over 200 rules) generally choose to leave on their own accord, with those who confess breaking the major rules being asked to leave and expelled from the monastic community (due to the bad example they set). However, the term ‘Sangha’ is often more loosely applied to the devout or dedicated lay community, the members of which follow at least 5, 8 or 10 vows as a life routine, and who regularly visit the local temple and volunteer their time in worthwhile social or charitable activities. In this manner, the monastic Sangha teach and guide the lay Sangha, and the lay Sangha applies the Buddha’s teachings of compassion, loving kindness and wise action to the outside the temple, and thereby expand the Buddha-Dharma beyond the temple. As the Buddha originally taught that there is no ‘difference’ in enlightened essence between the monastic and lay community, the monastics do not consider themselves ‘superior’ and the lay community does not consider itself ‘inferior’ to one another. The principle of ‘Sangha, therefore, denotes a sacred space defined and maintained through the principles of psychological and physical self-discipline and learning, premised upon a general attitude of mutual respect. The Sangha, in both essence and function, is a model for a ‘commune’ operating through the vigorous principles of  equality’, ‘discipline’ and ‘wisdom’. These are the principles embodied within this blog – regardless of the scope of its subject matter.

The term ‘Kommune’ is taken from the German word for ‘Commune’, and is directly related to the principles of Scientific Socialism, as formulated by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Indeed, within German language editions of the works of Marx and Engels, the term ‘Kommune’ is often encountered. This type of ‘Kommune’ is also a voluntary association, albeit distinctly ‘modern’ in origination, and designed to serve the Revolutionary needs of the Proletariat – or the mass of peasants forced to work in the industrialised factories produced by the oppressive capitalist system. Working 12 to 16 hours a day, strictly by the clock, whilst being dictated to by brutal managers and the movement and operation of monotonous machines, these peasants were transformed into self-disciplined and highly exploited automatons of industry, waiting for the right historical epoch to free themselves from their endless toil for little reward. Just as the collective mind is ‘dulled’ by endless hours of repetitive toil, it is ‘freed’, ‘activated’ and ‘expanded’ when encountering the strictures of Scientific Socialism, and a non-resisting ‘false consciousness’ is replace by a resisting ‘true consciousness’. Generally, when the mind is freed from the straitjacket of oppression, the body soon follows, even though it is equally true that if the body is freed by a Revolution caused by others, then the mind soon follows! In these post-modem times, proletariat ‘true consciousness’ is much more amorphous in manifestation, particularly as factory work becomes ever less prevalent in the West. Although the modes of capitalist exploitation change with the epoch, the nature of capitalist exploitation (and class distinction) remains exactly the same. Striving for the establishment of a ‘Kommunistic’ society remains the duty of all right-minded working class people across the globe, with the Marxist principle of ‘Internationalism’ replacing nationalism and racism, etc. The point is that the ‘true consciousness’ of the working class is premised entirely upon non-hatred for one another, as this hatred has been imported into the working class by the very capitalists that exploit them! By rejecting capitalism, the working class is rejecting the greed, hatred and delusion that underlies all capitalist thought and action. This working class mission is no less ‘sacred’ than its Buddhist counter-part, and shares exactly the same essence. The author of this blog strives to agitate for the peaceful achievement of both inner and outer Revolution amongst by any means necessary (to quote Malcolm X).

Having defined two interpretations of ‘Kommune’, it is important to also emphasis the pivotal notion of ‘education’ and the training of the human mind to discern a relevant ‘truth’ in any given situation or circumstance. Learning in a classroom, through a book, encounter groups, political meetings, protest marches, meditation sessions, or the internet, are all crucial aspects of ‘refining’ the memory and ‘honing’ the intellect. The thought processes (and emotionality) must be ‘calmed’ for the sake of ‘wise’ action and non-action when young, so that avoidable errors and mistakes are reduced to the minimum, and progressive activity increased to the maximum (to selflessly benefit humanity).  This is not always easy, and the ability to recognise non-efficient thought-patterns and behaviours should also be cultivated as a means toward achieving self-forgiveness, and the forgiveness of others. The important point is that the mind should be kept in a positive frame of operation, so that the body can be used for various types of ‘enlightened’ political, cultural and social action. The physical body must be clearly (and cleanly) directed by the mind (the seat of volition), and kept physically fit through appropriate activities. This psycho-physical training sets the stage for the refined individual to understand the frequency and quality of inner and outer energy, and immediately understand the best action (if any) to take, or instantly ‘know’ when others are ‘lying’, or presenting ‘untruth’ as ‘truth’. This ability can be further used to generate ‘correct’ work that counters the lies of a society motivated entirely by greed, racism and an indifference to the suffering of humanity and other life forms. Therefore, this ‘Sangha Kommune’ blog is a work in progress that covers a bewildering array of topics, opinions, and research data. By taking a step back away from its content – the general reader will begin to understand the underlying (and motivating) paradigm. This is essentially a ‘Kommunist’ zone where all beings are automatically ‘freed’ at the point of contact. The need for money is already ‘transcended’, and the energy frequency of the Sangha Kommune should be used by all to achieve a state of permanent ‘freedom’ in all circumstances. This is a space of permanent Cyber Kommunism, and ongoing Revolutionary activity in the form of ‘exposing’ and ‘dissolving’ the bourgeois system and its redundant mode of capitalist organisation.

Ch’an Wuzu said:

The Ch’an community is a place for the moulding of Sages and ordinary people, and for nurturing and developing potential ability. It is a source of teaching,. Even though many people are living together, gathering in kind, they are guided and made equal. Each has a transmission from the teacher.

Now in many places they do not strive to maintain the standards of the Sages of the past. Biased feelings of like and dislike are many, with people bending others to what they personally think is right. How should later students take an example?

How the Soviets Developed Supersonic Passenger Flight (Ту-144)

Soviet Ty-144 

I (and my family) recently visited the permanent Brooklands Concorde Exhibition (in Surrey), and was enthused with the ‘futuristic’ design and technology that we saw close-up, and the simulated Concorde flight that we took. Although now decommissioned and very much a museum piece (despite that fact that there is nothing in the world of commercial aeroplanes that comes close to a functioning Concorde today), I was surprised to learn that the British and French governments ‘co-operated’ to build a supersonic aircraft that cost far too much to design, build and fly, and which no commercial airline in the world would buy. Why would two former imperialist powers emerging out of the destruction and bankruptcy of WWII, waste valuable financial and material resources upon a project that due to its lack of commercial viability, was guaranteed to be an economic failure?

Brooklands British Concorde (GBBDG) Prototype

As matters transpired, we were told that the British manufacturers of Concorde could not ‘sell’ their completed prototypes, and so had to ‘give’ British Airways a number of these supersonic aircraft for ‘free’. Even so, the tickets to fly from London to New York in just 3 hours (at Mach 2.04 – or 1,354 mph – 2,180 km/h at cruise altitude), were so expensive that only the very rich could afford to travel. This proved to be a business failure, as Concorde to never attract the general public, and become a popular mode of mass transportation. As a consequence, the Western Concorde worked the skies from around 1969 to their eventual grounded in 2003, operating at huge loses. Despite its progressive design and extraordinary technology, capitalist economic forces brought the life of Concorde to an end. We are now faced with the absurdity of a futuristic piece of technology literally ‘rotting’ in a museum!

Soviet Ty-144 in Flight

When I checked historical sources, I saw that the government of the United States was behind the initial financing of the Anglo-Fremch project to build a ‘faster tha sound’ passenger carrying aeroplane – as a means to equal the Soviet Ty-144 supersonic jet. Although the Soviet Union had suffered between 27 – 40 million dead and wounded during the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), Joseph Stalin led the Socialist State in its recovery and development of nuclear power and space technology. Out of this monumental collective effort, the Soviet scientists and engineers eventually developed the ‘Ty-144’ passenger carrying, supersonic aeroplane. This aircraft was designed and built by the Tupolev Design Bureau throughout the 1960’s, was designed to demonstrate the superiority of the Soviet Socialist organisation of society. This project (like every Soviet innovation) was not designed to produce monetary profit, but rather to progress the social evolution of humanity. Whereas a single ticket to fly on the Western Concorde cost thousands of pounds, in the USSR, a traveller could fly from one side of the country to the other on the Ty-144, for the equivalent of just five British pounds. Although a piece of Socialist technology designed to carry unarmed civilians, nevertheless, declassified NATO Records state that the Ty-144 was considered a ‘military threat’ to Western capitalism, and was designated by the NATO code-word ‘Charger’. This code-word was to be used as and when the leaders of the Western (liberal) democratic countries decided it was time for NATO to ‘shoot’ the Ty-144 out of the sky.

Soviet Ty-144 Replete with ‘CCCP’ and ‘Red Flag’ Markings

The Ty-144 did not have such elements of the wing design as flaps and slats. Decrease in landing speed to acceptable values (​​of 350-400 kph) was carried out by a unique method for civilian aircraft, using the deflected toe on the fuselage and the unique front wing design. During the transition to supersonic mode, a complicated procedure was performed for transferring fuel to the centring tank in the cargo compartment, which compensated for the displacement of air pressure at the centre. Whilst flying at supersonic speed, it was recommended not to use the elevons – the control was carried out by changing the thrust of the engines. The aircraft did not have the thrust reversal of the engines, but it had powerful brake fans in the chassis, the initial speeding-off at landing, at the commander’s discretion, was effected by the release of a braking parachute. The Flight Manual forbade flights at night, although all the equipment needed for this was available. The aircraft used the most advanced scientific and technical solutions. At the disposal of the pilots was even an analog GPS-navigator – PIN (Projection Indicator Navigation Conditions). On a small screen, a map of the airfield was generated from a video tape, which superimposed the position mark of the aircraft; the geographic coordinates of the mark were calculated by an automated process, which processed data from the radio-navigation systems. Unlike the Western Concorde, the Ty-144 had an auxiliary power unit with the ability to start engines in mid-air, as well as the ability to power the aircraft and air conditioning whilst on the ground.

Already in 1947, the American prototype Bell X-1 – for the first time in world history – overcame the sound barrier. Since 1954, there was the production of supersonic fighters such as the American F-100 and the Soviet MiG-19. The USSR was already developing plans for a supersonic passenger aeroplane when the British and French started showing their designs at airshows around the world. The Soviet motivation was to make fast plane that could traverse vast distances very quickly and efficiently, and which did not have to continuously land for refuelling. Work on creating a supersonic passenger airliner in the USSR began in the Tupolev Design Bureau in the early 60’s. The Tupolev Design Bureau was chosen as one of the most experienced in the field of passenger aircraft, especially jet aircraft. On July 16th, 1963, the Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 798-271 was issued. The Soviet State envisaged the creation of a supersonic liner with a cruising speed of 2300-2700 kph, with a practical range of 4000-4500 kilometres, which could carry around 80-100 passengers on board, or travel 6000-6500 kilometres with additional fuel tanks and just 50 passengers on board. The construction of the first prototype began in 1965, and a second copy for static testing was also built with it. The first flight of the Ty-144 took place on December 31, 1968 (it was carried out by the Tupolev EDO testor Eduard Yelyan), that is, two months earlier than the Western Concorde. The Ty-144 was the first passenger airliner in history to overcome the sound barrier, it happened (June 5th, 1969) at an altitude of 11,000 meters. The next symbolic milestone was breaking the 2 Mach sound barrier, which was achieved by the Ty-144 on May 25th, 1970, flying at an altitude of 16,300 m at a speed of 2,150 kph. The aircraft combined a huge number of advanced development and design solutions. For example, the retractable whilst in flight were the front horizontal plumage (PGO), which significantly increased manoeuvrability in the air whilst reducing the speed at landing. The Ty-144 could land and take off in 18 airports of the USSR, whilst the Western Concorde, whose take-off and landing speed was 15% higher, required a separate landing certificate for each airport. During the design period, tremendous work was carried out. Inparticular, the modelling of the wing was carried out in full-scale tests on a specially prepared MiG-21I fighter (a special flying laboratory designed for studying the wing of the Ty-144 aircraft). Mass production of the aircraft was carried-out at the Voronezh plant number 64. By the abandonment of operation, 16 Ty-144 aircraft were built (four more planes were still being built), which made a total of 2556 sorties and flew 4110 hours. However, despite this Soviet success, the Ty-144 never saw commerical deployment due to a number of tecnical issues that were difficult to over-come. After a near tragedy during a test flight in 1981, the Ty-144 project was finally cancelled in 1983. It is believed that the Western Concorde was premised upon Soviet designs, but that the Western engineers were able to iron-out (or completely alter) a number of design issues. After Brezhnev’s death, the attitude of the new leadership of the country to the plane changed. Preference was given instead to the simpler and more reliable subsonic IL-86 airbuses.

Poverty in Capitalist Russia (2017)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The collapse of the Soviet Union (between 1989 and 1991) was a tragedy not only for Russia and Eastern Europe, but also for humanity. I read a report on the Russian language internet which sated that between 1991 and 1999, it is recorded that the death-rate in Russia rose by 5.9 million – as Soviet provision was suddenly ‘withdrawn’ from society, Over-night all free education, medical care, welfare and working State support ceased – creating starvation and medical neglect – the likes of which had not been seen in Russia since the Nazi German invasion of the USSR in 1941. Although President Putin has provided some support and stability in ‘capitalist’ Russia, wide-spread poverty and deprivation remains the norm throughout the country. within capitalism, the will of the working people is ignored, whereas within Socialism, society is geared toward meeting all the collective needs of the working class. Today, in Russia, an affluent middle class has developed that gained its wealth by ‘stealing’ all the wealth accumulated over decades of hard work by the Workers’ State. As the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution draws near, Russia is once again being ravished by the brutal forces of predatory capitalism.

The Multi-Frequency Reality of Todd Acamesis

The purpose of this blog is the exercise of freedom of thought in the guise of ‘critical thinking’. Of course, anyone is free to interpret reality through a ‘non-critical’ mind-set, but that is different to the point being made here. People are also free to view reality as a projection of the mind, and use this ‘idealism’ to set the interpretive agenda. Again, this is different to what is being investigated through this ‘Institute of Inner Science’, but it is an interesting alternative to the view that material reality possesses a type of ‘reality’ all of its own. People cannot be ‘forced’ out of the particular reality they inhabit in their mind and body, but their ability to ‘see more’ can be encouraged through progressive education, and dialectical learning. This is the point of this blog. A challenge to all those who adhere to an ‘idealistic’ view of reality, and accept ideas not grounded in material reality, must consider the following facts:

a) If you do not have access to money – you cannot access any service, facility or leisure resource of the society within which you exist.

b) If you do not have access to food – you will eventually die of starvation.

c) If you do not have shelter – you will eventually die of cold (or exposure) to the elements.

d) If you do not have access to medical care – you will eventually die of illness or injury.

e) If you do not have access to legal protection – you will live in a world of oppression.

These issues are practical or material realities – and no amount of positive thought will change these conditioned pathways. Ignoring practical reality is foolish because it is the basis of a core reality (regardless of the mind’s ability to ‘imagine’ or apparently ‘traverse’ to different realities). A demonstration of this material reality can be seen in the ‘Austerity’ measures of sudden and rapid cuts in NHS care and Welfare Support in the UK, initiated by the Tories and LibDems since 2010 (and which is ongoing). Oxford University has recently calculated that as of January, 2015, around 30,000 in the UK died of causes directly related to the material changes generated through this ‘Austerity’ process, which has attacked and destroyed the most vulnerable populations living within British society. In 2016, the Tories and LibDems were found Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity by the United Nations (UN) – for the death of at least 10,000 disabled people (since 2010). The point is that material reality really does matter, and to ignore ts presence or purpose is a foolish use of the human-mind. obviously, those who possess the preferred skin-colour, class, education, gender and financial category, tend to be insulated from the harsher realities of material existence, and are free to use their ‘leisure’ time to exercise the ‘imagination’ capacity of their mind. As usual, think for yourself and make your own decisions. I am not judging Todd Acamesis, nor am I advocating his interpretation of reality, but I am presenting his interesting lecture here, as food for alternative thought strategies.

 

 

The Boxer Urising (义和团运动) and the Fight Against Hunger in China

A Starving but Brave ‘Boxer’ About to be publically Beheaded (c. 1901)

The Boxers did not ‘rebel’ – they collectively ‘rose-up’ together against the presence of Western imperialists in China. The Eurocentric racism aimed at China is so endemic and ingrained in the Western psyche, that a movement of indigenous peasantry rising-up against a polluting and corrupting Western presence in China (between 1899-1901) is still referred to in many English sources as a ‘rebellion’. As the Chinese peasantry never attacked the imperial ruling house of China – their martial arts-based uprising cannot be truthfully referred to as a ‘rebellion’. The Chinese peasant armies – inspired by folk-religion and magic spells, deployed traditional Chinese martial arts against modern rifles, machine guns and cannon, and despite being technically outgunned, achieved stunning successes in their early campaigns against the Western and Japanese imperialist forces (that had invaded China decades before). Following the eventual defeat of the Boxer Movement (i.e. the ‘Righteous Harmonious Fists’), the imperialist forces of the UK, US, Czarist Russia and Japan massacred around 50,000 innocent men, women and children in Beijing – after the city had surrendered. This unbelievable figure stands side by side with the mass-rape policy that all foreign troops engaged in (an act of brutality supported by the numerous Western missionaries operating in the area). China’s inability to stand-up to this racist and destructive foreign presence at the time, eventually led to wide-spread hunger and famine – as Western (Christian) missionaries bought-up all the supplies of rice, and only issued meals to Chinese people who had converted to Christianity. The brave man in this photograph is emaciated due to the presence of Western imperialists in his country – moments later he lies dead on the ground with his severed head lying near-by – for daring to confront this malignant threat.

The Chinese Anti-Falun Gong Cult World Alliance Welcomes Westerners

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The Falun Gong cult does not represent China’s modern or traditional culture. People of Chinese ethnicity around the world understand this fact, but many in the West are ignorant to this fact. This should not be surprising, as the Falun Gong cult is a ‘racist’ anti-China construct, developed in the West as part of the US Cold War policy to bring-down the Communist government of China. What is interesting is that despite a steady stream of ‘fake news’ and ‘disinformation’ published through the CIA-financed Minghui Network (which includes the Epoch Times and NTDTV, etc), this policy will not be successful due to a world-wide Chinese solidarity and resistance. The Falun Gong cult will not prevail because the Chinese people world-wide will not allow it to prevail. In the meantime, the Falun Gong cult news outlets continue to function like any news network, broadcasting weather reports, banal cooking programmes and mindless reality TV shows. In between these programmes is issued a bizarre anti-China rhetoric of ever disparate false news stories and allegations of human rights abuses – this continues as Li Hongzhi orders one vulnerable teenager after another to self-immolate.

Laughably, the Falun Gong cult, as a means to justify its criminal behaviour, states that Li Hongzhi (its founder who has developed extensive health problems whilst living a life of luxury in the US), is the ‘omnipotent cosmic master Buddha’! If those who fall under his brain-washing spell give him enough money, and sign over their property to him, they too can achieve this wondrous state by ‘breathing deeply’! The reality of Falun Gong cult practice suggests quite another outcome. Falun Gong cult members are regularly deprived of food and water, tied-up, psychologically and physically tortured, and in the case of the very young – sexually abused. When individuals have managed to escape this dangerous cult, they have had to spend time in hospital as a means to try and regain their health, For many, however, the years of systematic abuse and suffering means that despite extensive and compassionate care, they can never regain their health. Even when qualified Daoist masters have assessed the Falun Gong cult technique – they have revealed at least 28 life-threatening errors and bad medical practices. Indeed, during March, 2006, Li Guodong (李国栋) – the head of NTDTV anti-China propaganda – suddenly dropped dead from liver cancer. Li Guodong had been declared an ‘Immortal Buddha’ by Falun Gong cult founder Li Hongzhi shortly before his death. During June, 2006, the chief scientist and medical doctor of the Falun Gong cult – Feng Lili (封莉莉) suddenly dropped dead of pancreatic cancer. Again, Li Hongzhi had previously declared Feng Lili an ‘Immortal Buddha’. In July, 2009, the chief editor of the Epoch Times in Japan – Zuo Tenggong (佐藤贡) – suddenly dropped dead… These deaths are not isolated incidences, but are part of the broader phenomenon of Falun Gong cult poor health and sudden death. It is rumoured that Li Hongzhi is in and out of hospital in the US due to poor health caused by his cultish practice, being kept alive by his US spy-masters at any cost. In fact, Li Hongzhi may have died sometime ago…

The Falun Gong cult is NOT an indigenous Chinese cultural or spiritual movement. Its methods are premised upon a ‘racist’ disregard for Chinese history, culture and political self-determination. The Falun Gong cult was not developed in China – but in a smoke-filled room of ‘White men’ in the CIA Offices situated in Washington DC. The Falun Gong cult is medically dangerous, and is anti-China and anti-Communist in both design and function. All ethnic Chinese people around the world understand these facts and are striving to work together to protect the Chinese Motherland from this external threat to its stability and prosperity. An interesting development is that there is now a growing network of consciously ‘aware’ Westerners’ (and other ‘non-Chinese’) who now understand the corruption that underlies the operations of the Falun Gong cult, and who help to expose and check its influence. This world-wide defence of China is required to prevent national governments (such as Australia in 2009), making fools of themselves and siding with the Falun Gong cult. The Falun Gong cult is ran from the US and is racist in nature. All right-minded Westerners must help the Chinese world community to prevent the spread of this dangerous and threatening teaching. This action will save numerous lives and make the world a better place to live in peace and harmony.

When Falun Gong cult members ‘escape’ the clutches of Li Hongzhi, the Communist Party of China (CPC) guarantees their rights and will make every effort to provide medical care and psychological healing. This has always been the case. However, as hundreds of former Falun Gong cult members have been rehabilitated, the Falun Gong operating out of the US falsely claims that these individuals have been ‘tortured’, ‘imprisoned’ and even ‘killed’. The further lie is that organs are stolen from dead bodies. Even a slight understanding of medical knowledge states that organs taken from dead bodies are no good for transplant, and are medically worthless. Communist China encourages Chinese citizens to ‘donate’ their organs when ‘near’ death to save the lives of other people who need transplants, if they should choose to do so. So many citizens do this as a matter of course, that Communist China has no need to ‘harvest’ organs from the bodies of executed criminals. One person who the Falun Gong cult claimed to have been killed (and their organs harvested), is ‘Yang Jun’ (杨俊) from Chongqing, who was supposedly beaten to death at just 18 years old. In fact, Yang Jun escape from the Falun Gong cult (like hundreds of others), and now lives a happy and normal life in China. Yang Jun’s mother has gone on record stating that her son is very happy and glad to be ‘free’ of the terrible Falun Gong cult. Together, the world community can wipe-out the Falun Gong cult, so that its victims can be saved, and its leaders tried for Crimes Against Humanity and imprisoned.

Ludwig Boltzmann (1844-1906) and the Re-Discovery of the Atom in Western Science

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Ludwig Boltzmann AUSTRIAN PHYSICIST

Although the ancient Greek philosopher Democritus (460-370 BCE), and his famous student Epicurus (341-270 BCE), speculated that ‘atoms’ existed beneath the surface of conventional reality (which could not be seen with the naked eye), this did not mean that following the ‘Renaissance’ in Europe (and the re-discovery of ancient Greek logic and reason), all Greek ideas were automatically accepted without question. This is the case with atoms. Western science evolved not only from the logic of Greek thought, but also from the rejection of Judeo-Christian theology (and faith) as a means to discern correct knowledge about the universe. Empirical science is premised upon the correct observation and measurement of matter and material processes. The problem with the atom hypothesis was that the existence of an atom had to be taken on ‘faith’, and because of this, many leading scientists in the 19th century refused to accept the idea of an atom on the grounds that its existence could not be confirmed and verified through observation and measurement. This is where mathematics and algebra came into play. Mathematics (and algebra) represent the meaningful arranging (or sequencing) of numbers and letters, so that empirical truths could be revealed about the material nature of reality. Ludwig Boltzmann, being fully aware that atoms had to be ‘statistically’ proven to exist, exercised his particular genius, and developed a mathematical formula which proved the existence and behaviour of atoms. In-short, Ludwig Boltzmann developed what is known as ‘statistical mechanics’. Statistical mechanics confirms the existence of atoms, and predicts how the mass, charge, and structure of an atom will behave. Such an observation determines the physical properties of matter – namely the viscosity, thermal conductivity, and diffusion. Ludwig Boltzmann lived at a time when microscopes were not yet powerful enough to observe individual atoms (or sub-atomic particles), and so had to use the power of representative mathematics to ‘reflect’ a material world that could be ‘predicted’ to exist with the human mind, but which could not yet be seen with the human eye.

Why Did the Dangerous Falun Gong Cult Target Teachers?

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

It is well-known in China that teachers are trusted and respected, because they are considered ‘engineers’ of the human mind, and constructors of human consciousness within society. This is why teachers have been held with the highest respect throughout China’s history, and entrusted with the education of China’s youth, from the youngest (and vulnerable) pupil to the oldest (adolescent) student. Teachers are empowered within China’s society to effectively learn the knowledge and wisdom that is ‘Chinese culture’, and effectively (and correctly) convey that information to future generations. The Falun Gong cult leadership lives in luxury in the USA, and is guided by the CIA – a ruthless intelligence-gathering and military organisation that often operates beyond the control (or ‘knowledge’) of the President, and which routinely employs murder and disinformation policies around the world, to ensure the primacy of predatory capitalism. This is simply the ‘old’ Western imperialism re-invented for a ‘new’ age. As a result, although the Falun Gong is staffed at its core by ethnic Chinese people, it employed a distinctly anti-China rhetoric that is premised entirely upon the strictures of Eurocentric racism. The Falun Gong cult leader – Li Hongzhi – has ordered his subordinates to especially ‘target’ teachers in China and around the world, who are in-charge of the education of teenagers. This is because teenagers are thought to be particularly ‘impressionable’ and easy to ‘influence’. As teenagers lack a ‘mature’ ability to assess information and make sound and/or rational judgements, they are a particularly ‘vulnerable’ group susceptible to Falun Gong brain-washing.

In modern China, the Falun Gong is illegal, but due to its CIA-controllers in the US, continuous attempts are made to infiltrate China’s internet, social media platforms, and educational establishments, as a means to spread its warped ideology and illogical teaching throughout China’s society. The point of this US policy is to bring down the Communist Party of China (CPC), and eradicate all the scientific and social progression achieved by the Chinese people since 1949. Li Hongzhi was a low-level office worker when the CIA infiltrated his mind-set during the 1980’s and 1990’s. He forgot he was Chinese, and abandoned his own people for the destructive and racist policies of a ‘foreign’ power. He made-up a completely ‘false’ teaching with no basis within Chinese spiritual or rational traditions, and set-forth on his single-handed mission of attempting to bring down the Chinese Communist State. Although the education system in China is fully comprehensive and ‘free’ for all Chinese citizens, Li Hongzhi was lazy as an individual and chose not to pursue his learning to any great extent – this is why his fabricated cult has no bearing to legitimate spiritual culture within China.

In around the mid-1990’s, the corrupt Falun Gong cult attempted to infiltrate Chinese academia, and in those days, did attract one or two teachers. Quite often, in all other ways these professional people were intelligent, but prone to suggestibility. Although their colleagues and friends (who knew better), tried to warn these people that they were descending into criminal activity, these individuals did not listen. These teachers spread the dangerous Falun Gong cult through videos, discussion groups, and informal get togethers. Also used was the QQ social media platform, and the print media, as well as DVDs. Although illicit, because these corrupt teachers were trusted by society at large, they were able to spread Li Hongzhi’s pseudo-teachings unhindered in the early days. A practical problem was that although the thinking underlying the Falun Gong is racist and irrational, many of its outer movements are deliberately designed to ‘mimic’ the familiar movements associated with legitimate Chinese martial arts and Daoist self-cultivation. This mimicry acted as a type of social camouflage and aided the Falun Gong cult for quite sometime, until its numerous victims started contacting the Chinese Authorities. Over-time, it became clear that the Falun Gong was a ‘foreign’ derived, politicized movement designed to bring down the Communist Chinese State, which employed an extensive set of exploitative psychological and physiological brain-washing techniques. This includes sexual abuse, imprisonment, torture, theft, threats, and murder. Furthermore, the Falun Gong exercises themselves have been proven to be decidedly ‘unhealthy’ for the practitioner. Eventually, as it became obvious that the Falun Gong was harming China and its citizens, the CPC quite rightly moved to ban the dangerous Falun Gong cult in 1999.

As Communist China has exercised its self-determination against US racism and neo-imperialism, the CIA has initiated a number of futile but persistent anti-China campaigns, including the bizarre allegation of ‘organ harvesting’. Exactly the same CIA remains ‘silent’ as Li Hongzhi ‘orders’ various brain-washed teenagers under his influence to ‘set fire’ to themselves. Those whose lives have been saved by the Chinese medical services, have all described how they were threatened and manipulated into carry-out these self-destructive acts. This included Falun Gong cult threats against their families (usually non-members of the Falun Gong cult). Not only did a small number of teachers allow themselves to be manipulated by the Falun Gong cult in Guangdong and similar areas, there was even a case in Inner Mongolia. Many people divorced their partners when they learned of this criminal behaviour, which even included placing portraits of Li Hongzhi where family pictures once hung. Of course, teachers are human-beings, and are subject to all kinds of dangers in life, but their esteemed position within Chinese society means that they should be careful and more discerning in their personal and professional lives. As matters stand, the Chinese Communist State offers leniency to those who repent, but advocates severity for those who resist. Teachers have a social duty to ensure that they set a good example throughout their lives, and in so doing, protect and support the Communist Chinese State, and look-after the psychological and physical health of their students. Do not engage with Falun Gong cult websites overseas, and do not ‘illegally’ down-load or distribute Falun Gong cult propaganda within Communist China. Teachers have a responsibility to keep the spiritual purity of China free of Western racism and its destructive influence.

教师缘何染上邪教?
来源:新陕网 作者:政法委 字数:1,852 点击数:9     发布时间:2017-09-08
 教师被尊称为“人类灵魂的工程师”,是对下一代身心进行特定影响,向下一代传递人类科学文化知识和技能的专职人员,历来受到全社会的特别关注和尊重。由于其地位特殊,教师群体也成为邪教组织的首要目标,近年来不断有教师陷入邪教的报道见著媒体!青少年缺乏正确成熟的判断力,一直是“法轮功”等各种邪教的传播重点。青少年对老师的话深信不疑,邪教组织深知:教师染邪传播邪教,可以迅速扩大了邪教信徒的数量。

教师队伍染邪的危害不容忽视!然而,尊重、本来是向别人传道授业解惑的教师,缘何被邪教组织所攻陷,成为忠实的邪教信徒、成为疯狂传播邪教的犯罪分子?只有深究教师队伍染邪的原因,才能制定教师被邪教裹挟的防范之策!

思想空虚,轻信妖言,被歪理邪说所迷惑

不要以为邪教组织诱骗的都是受教育层次低的吃瓜群众,高学历不是抵御邪教的护身符。因为思想空虚,放松学习而被邪教的歪理邪说所迷惑从而染邪的,教师中也不乏其人。

陈某是江西省赣州经开区一名教授计算机的技校老师,1996年,他接触到“法轮功”,随即被其吸引,认为 “法轮大法”是“世界上的一切学说中最玄奥、超常的科学”,成为其忠实信徒。在学校里,因向教职人员传播邪教未果,转而将目标移到了学生们。他在课堂上以讲故事、播视频、聊天等形式向学生传播邪教内容、宣讲诋毁破坏国家法律制度的言论,煽动学生们退团退党。他还组建了多个面向学生的QQ群,在群内长期大量转发邪教宣传图片、文章、网络链接,对涉世未深的学生们造成了极端恶劣的影响。罪行败露后,陈某被依法处理,但给学生造成的影响,岂是一朝一日可以清除得掉的?

遭受挫折、急功近利,被“祛病健身”所欺骗

内蒙古通辽市开鲁县的徐某原本是中学语文教师,曾任学校教导主任。多次获县、市“师德先进个人”,优质课和论文多次获县、市级奖项。后来因患上了甲亢,治疗效果不佳,轻信了“法轮功”的谎言,认为自己的病是“业力”造成的,按师父的说法,要通过“发意念”才能“消业”。从此她痴迷上了“法轮功”,并且到处宣讲其好处,游说身边的亲友同事一起来练功。国家依法取缔了“法轮功”后。她非常不理解,仍然顽固地认为:师父李洪志讲的“真善忍”是为了指导练功的弟子“上层次”、达到“圆满”境界,是让人“做好人”。她在家中挂上李大师的画像,召集功友到自己家中练功,筹集经费印制邪教宣传单,晚上出去偷偷发放和张贴。徐某后被学校予以停课考察处理,丈夫也一气之下跟她离婚,带着儿子搬出去单过。(凯风网2017年3月22日《这名女教师陷入邪教后》)

精神苦闷、情感纠纷,转而投向“救世主”怀抱

教师也是凡人,一样有七情六欲,各种烦恼。每当遇有家庭琐事、情感纠纷之时,邪教组织往往披着“关爱”、“解脱”的虚假外衣趁虚而入,打着救赎的幌子,进行精神洗脑,此时如不注意防范,往往容易中招。据2016年9月9日凯风网报道:河南一教师由于丈夫长期在外工作,夫妻双方感情淡漠,假期期间,百无聊赖的她无意中接触到普度众人的“救世主”,立马被其吸引,一步步走入邪教内部,不仅决意离婚,甚至辞职以表决心,更是向其亲属传播教义,企图扩大信教群体,最终被有关机关收监,令人不胜嘻嘻,扼腕叹息!教师求知心、理解力更强,遇事往往喜欢刨根究底,但陷得越深,就越难自我解脱。(《教师如何防范邪教侵害》)

应聘失察,带病上岗,课堂宣讲邪教害人害己

据浙江日报报道,2014年间,重庆一所学校的老师陈某某,从“法轮功”境外网站上下载资料,并利用自购的刻录机、电脑、光盘等工具,制作了DVD光盘共17张到附近广场上散发,经群众举报后被公安机关抓获。法庭上,陈某某还不停地宣扬“法轮功”所谓的“教义”。2014年初,在衢州市一所中学任教刘某某,购置了打印机、纸张等设备材料,从“法轮功”境外网站上下载文字、照片等资料,制作了有关“法轮功”内容的宣传册、宣传单,多次前往衢州市几个小区的住户信箱里分发。她还多次利用上课及晚自习的机会,向学校部分班级的学生宣讲有关“法轮功”的内容。(《青年教师痴迷邪教被判刑校园反邪教警钟当长鸣》)

据悉,上述两个案例中的教师陈某某和刘某某,都是在担任教师以前就已经成为邪教组织的忠实信徒的,用人单位在聘用时把关不严,疏于审查,以至于造成难以挽回的后果。

以上案例当如警钟长鸣,务必关注!教师地位特殊,教师染邪对社会、对青少年的危害尤甚,决不可等闲视之!全社会必须把校园看做反邪教的最前线,把讲台看做反邪教的桥头堡阵地,既要把教师既看做反邪教宣传的首要对象,又要把教师打造成反邪教大军的坚强卫士。只有这样,我们的社会才会永葆健康!

The Brain Evolved to Affect Movement

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

It is no secret that the greater the extent that young children ‘play’ in a diverse educational environment, the greater their dexterity of mind and body. If a young child is deprived of this sensory experience, then the psychological and physical growth of that child is adversely affected. This suggests that positive sensory stimulation experienced in the environment, generates a healthy and robust inner psychological world, that is fully adapted to ‘survive’ in the evolutionary environment. This will obviously produce different stratagems for survival that are distinct and relevant for different historical epochs. A child during the Stone Age, for example, had to use play as a means of learning a range of survival behaviours in a potentially dangerous environment. A child from an affluent middle class background living in the 21st century, by way of comparison, has to develop learning strategies within ‘safe’ playing environments. Although generally speaking, the child in the latter example is not in danger, the blatant (and fear-orientated) need to survive, is replaced with the enjoyable requirement to learn ‘new’ tasks, for which the child receives positive reinforcement from both parents and teachers. According to neuroscientist Daniel Wolpert, the brain has evolved simply to move the body through the evolutionary environment in a manner that efficiently enhances the chances of survival of the entire living organism. This suggests that the agencies of ‘thinking’ and ‘feeling’ are not the primary reasons the brain evolved, but are by-products designed to augment and facilitate ever greater and more useful movement strategies in the external world. Viewing the brain as being primarily a ‘thinking’ device, is then understood to be an inverted interpretation of reality. From a strictly evolutionary perspective, the brain moved the body first, before the mind was developed that was able to generate ‘thought’ about the movement. The confusion arises when the thinking process is fully developed and functional, and appears to exist in parallel to movement (as if the two systems are not inherently connected). The average human – until receiving a modern education – is unaware that movement preceded thought, and so mistakes the true order of evolutionary events. Within modern human societies, where many of the day to day survival needs for the population have been more or less removed, physical movement strategies to evade dangerous animals and traverse difficult environments are not obviously needed as much, and so thought appears to be more prominent, giving the false impression that its function is primary. Of course, as movement is good for the health of the brain, many people voluntarily take-up various exercise regimes to replicate the exertion of past times, with some people joining the military as a means to produce a self-fulfilling sense of ‘danger’, ‘urgency’ and ‘survival’ against the odds.

 

South Korea Anti-Falun Gong Protests Shock the US! (2013)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

South Korea has been a US colony since 1945 – with an intensification of Christianisation and consumerist brain-washing of its indigenous citizens following the Korean War (1950-1953). The US annually pumps billions of dollars into its South Korean colony in an attempt to create the ‘illusion’ of an affluent ‘capitalist’ economy, when the reality is that many South Koreans live ‘imprisoned’ within the capitalist nightmare of abject poverty. Under orders from their US pay-masters, the South Korean government only issues passports (and visas to travel) to already wealthy South Koreans (usually working in the propped-up automobile industry). Freedom of movement in and out of South Korea is strictly limited, and involves carefully selected groups heading either to or from the US mainland. These are South Koreans who are considered suitably ‘Westernised’, and trusted to reject their own indigenous culture and religions.

On November 4th, 2013, the Korea-China Exchange Association – through its ‘Korean Compatriots News Website’, reported that the US brain-washing control of South Koreans was severely ‘tested’ – when at least 50 South Korean men, women and children gathered in Ansan city (Gyeonggi Province) – to openly protest about the dangerous US-backed cult known as the ‘Falun Gong’. These protests soon peacefully spread across many other cities in South Korea – to the astonishment of the US-controlled South Korean Authorities. When an elderly Korean man was asked why he was protesting, he said that the Falun Gong spread lies and falsehood amongst the South Korean people, and take advantage of the vulnerable and the easily exploitable. Due to the ‘hidden’ poverty in South Korea, the Falun Gong operate out of general sight, working in the impoverished areas, pursuing a fervent anti-China policy designed to prevent the South Korean poor from turning toward ‘Socialism’, Communist North Korea, and Communist China. On many occasions, North Korea and Communist China have jointly issued official statements welcoming ALL South Korean citizens to settle outside of the US-controlled colony of South Korea. All such migrants from US tyranny are guaranteed a house, food, a job, education and comprehensive and free medical care.

On October 25th, 2013, spontaneous anti-Falun Gong protests spread yet again across South Korean cities, with the numbers growing with every demonstration. Placards called for the immediate ‘banning’ of the Falun Gong, and for the South Korean government to cut-off all direct ties with the US. Other placards called the Falun Gong ‘criminal’ and drew attention to various ‘sexual’ crimes carried-out against South Korean children (and subsequently covered-up by the South Korean government). One protestor stated that South Korea should have good relations with North Korea and Communist China, and that the US military should be ‘expelled’ from South Korea by the South Korean government. Another protestor said that they welcomed China’s ‘PLA’ into South Korea – to ‘liberate’ the area from the influence of US-led capitalist tyranny. Whether the South Korean government will continue to allow these anti-Falun Gong demonstrations is open to question – given the naturally ‘anti-imperialist’ and ‘anti-American’ tone of these demonstrations. Obviously the US notion of ‘freedom of speech’ does not extend to subjugated colonies of Asian peoples.

韩民众街头集会抗议法轮功
发布时间:2013-12-19 10:00:46来源:凯风网进入电子报

    韩中交流协会主办的《韩中同胞新闻网站》11月4日报道:10月25日韩国50余名示威者在京畿道安山、水原等多地街头集会抗议法轮功,并称这种形式的抗议活动在韩国是首次。

    10月25日,(韩国)国内街头出现反法轮功集会。

    当天50余名韩国民众参加集会,示威者称“由于法轮功的政治和宗教问题,极大损害韩中关系,对国家利益毫无益处”。当天参加集会的一位人士说:“现在国内法轮功的示威和集会正在全国蔓延,驻韩中国使领馆门前、仁川、平泽港地铁入口、中国人密集区都有,并有扩散趋势。非常容易引发公共场所秩序混乱甚至骚乱,特别是华人间因观念不同而导致的恶语相加甚至冲突事件频繁发生,令警方经常出动。影响社会治安,还引发了当地民众的不满”,他对此深表忧虑。

他还说:“此次反法轮功集会是对频繁且无理的法轮功集会的反制,以此坚守韩国社会安定和我们民族的精神文化。”

此次集会在京畿道安山、水原等多地的街头举行。当天参加集会的民众手持“我们不要法轮功”、““警惕背离韩国情绪的法轮功,守护韩中友好关系”等标语,高喊口号,吸引了中国同胞和当地民众的关注。

有不少人误认为此次集会仍是法轮功集会,“为什么不是周日,法轮功又吵吵嚷嚷?”民众都用异样的眼光看待集会。在得知不是支持法轮功,而是反对法轮功活动后,当即表示理解和赞同,说这次组织得很好。(作者:草青)

Did Buddhism Pre-Exist the Historical Buddha?

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

‘I shall not die until the monks, the nuns, the laymen and the laywomen have become deeply learned, wise and well-trained, remembering the teachings, proficient in the lesser and greater doctrines and virtuous; until, having learned the teachings themselves, they are able to tell it to others, teach it, make it known, establish it, open it up, explain it and make it clear; until they are able to refute false doctrines taught by others and are able to spread the convincing and liberating truth abroad. I shall not die until the holy life has become successful, prosperous, undespised and popular; until it has become well proclaimed among both gods and men.’

(The Buddha – M,I:354)

According to the Buddha, he was not a divine being, and was not a founder of the philosophical path he taught. The Buddha claimed that his teaching was not new, but was ancient, and that he was one of a long line of enlightened human-beings that had directly perceived the truth he conveyed. This idea of a pre-existing ‘Buddhism’ runs in parallel with the Buddha’s description of the different meditative paths that he followed, fully mastered, and then abandoned because they were ‘incomplete’ and lacked a full interpretation of reality. Which explanation is correct? How could the Buddha follow at least six different meditative paths, and then state that his enlightenment was in fact a product of a pre-existing philosophical lineage in ancient India? If this was the case, then why not just follow the ancient form of Buddhism and ‘ignore’ the alternative (and ‘incomplete’) meditative paths? Perhaps the Buddha’s method involved the seeking-out (and trying) of other lineages, as an important part of his own ‘ancient path’.

Whatever the case, what must be looked for within ancient Indian spiritual texts is the idea of a materially derived philosophy that ‘rejected’ the idea of a permanent ‘soul’ (atma), as well as the institution of organised religion, and yet which still upheld the claim that a psychological and physical freedom could be attained through following a rigorous path of meditative training (and behavioural modification). In other words, did the Buddha’s path start with him, or is there evidence that its basic premises might have already existed within ancient Indian thought? It is well-known that ancient India had a hard materialist school (the ‘lokayata’), with which the Buddha knew in its ‘Ucchedavada’ manifestation. The Buddha agreed that the physical world appeared to exist, but disagreed that it was permanent or unchangeable. To the Buddha, each atom -or ‘tiny’ speck of matter – literally ‘flashed’ in and out existence. The Buddha also agreed that there was no ‘atma’, and therefore, no recourse to theistic religion as a path of legitimate salvation. He disagreed with regard to the Ucchedavada thinking which suggested that no moral or ethical system was required to achieve salvation, or that death was an end in and of itself. The Uchedavada believed that at death, each individual achieved the final nirvana – an interpretation the Buddha rejected. For the Buddha, salvation lay only in following a strict path of meditational development and behavioural modification, with enlightenment leading to the state of no operating karma, or valid notion of rebirth.

The presence of a hard materialist school prior to the rise of Buddhism does not, in and of itself, add weight to the argument that a type of Buddhism pre-existed the historical Buddha. Evidence for a type of Buddhism ‘pre-existing’ the birth of the historical Buddha, however, might exist in the Brahmanic teachings of the Upanishads. In the Kathakopanisad, a doctrine is critically described that does not accept the concept of a central and eternal ‘atma’, but which instead advocates a theory of ‘separate elements’ (prthag-dharman pasyati). The presence of this apparently ‘Buddhistic’ teaching in a pre-Buddhist text, suggests that there is some historical substance to the Buddha’s claim that what he teaches was not invented by him, and that as a distinct method and special body of knowledge, it pre-existed his birth into the world. The Kathakopanisad does not accept this apparently ‘Buddhistic’ teaching as valid, and rejects it by stating ‘Just as rain-water that has fallen down in a desert is scattered and lost among the undulations of the ground, jus so is (a philosopher) who maintains the existence of separate elements lost in running after nothing else but these (separate elements).’ Moreover, a various scholars have pointed-out that a number of ‘unorthodox’ teachings regarding the ‘soul theory’ appear scattered throughout Upanishadic literature. The Kathakopanisad rejects the idea of subtle and separate elements (prthag-dharma) as being untenable for the achieving of spiritual salvation, but its inclusion in this text demonstrates at least that the Buddha’s ideas were not ‘new’. It could be that after exploring the many different and yet obvious paths of meditational development, and despite the Buddha’s assertion that he found his path entirely through his own efforts, he actually had encountered a teacher who had imparted this final methodology to him. As to why this is not included in the Pali Canon is curious and open to interpretation.
