OM SO HUM

SO is the sound of inhaling breath and HUM is the sound of exhaling breath. 
It is used for deep meditation. 
No need to pronounce it -- just sit, feel, and think about the vibrations of words,
concentrate on your breath in and out. 
Sense the power in the ancient Mantra. 
Feel the music of breath. 
You will be OM SO HUM.


Bosque Medicinal

The mission of the collective Bosque Medicinal is to raise awareness of the importance to maintain Amazon rainforest's biodiversity. We want to inform the public about the importance of the rain forests for all the life on Earth, their significant role as a source of natural medicines and potable water, their ability to produce oxygen and bind carbon dioxide. To demonstrate why it is important to care about nature and show people how to do it gently. We want to protect the fragments of forest left, seed new trees for the reforestation projects and teach both children and adults about the importance of forests.

Support Ecological Reserve El Paraiso

The project of supporting the Ecological Reserve El Paraiso is mainly aimed at preserving the rain forest and its biodiversity in the area of the reserve. To engage general public in protection of the nature, Chart the teritorry and track its changes, significant locations, species distribution and biodiversity. We want to emphasize the importance of local ecosystems on a wider scale, and to high light current problems. Inform about on going events and attractions in the region.

1. Forest protection
2. Conservation of biodiversity of plants and animals
3. Reforestation of "el Paraiso's" neighboring deforested areas
4. Support of local communities
5. Promotion  and cooperation with the Runahorco Reserve management
6. Supporting Ecotourism

Establishment of a botanical garden
The project of establishing the botanical garden El BosqueMedicinal will focus on collecting plants from all Amazon. Plants and trees which are used in traditional natural medicine, traditional art, traditional architecture and crafts. Future visitors will become acquainted with these plants, get to know the environment in which the plants grow, possibilities of their utilization, their medicinal effects and traditional methods of their use.

Establishment of nursery seedlings of trees and plants
The nursery of tree and plant seedlings will help to reforest deforested areas and to support other environmental projects. Tree seedlings and various plant species will be mainly used  by ecological projects in recovery of damaged ecosystems.

Educational system
Project's educational system is not only dedicated to students of vocational subjects (such as zoology, botany, herbalism or environmental protection), its purpose is to teach children and adults about the importance and necessity of forest ecosystems.It aims to access alternative forms of learning about nature on site or in the surrounding areas.

SOCIALISM IN ONE PERSON -- IS CAPITALISM.

Lord Bertrand Russell joined with the Frankfurt School in their effort at mass social engineering and spilled the beans in his 1951 book, The Impact of Science on Society.

He wrote:

    'Physiology and psychology afford fields for scientific technique which still await development.' The importance of mass psychology "has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called 'education.' The social psychologists of the future will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black."

Russell said education will affirm:

    "First, that the influence of home is obstructive.

    Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten.

    Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective.

    Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark grey. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen."

Writing in 1992 in Fidelio Magazine, [The Frankfurt School and Political Correctness] Michael Minnicino observed how the heirs of Marcuse and Adorno now completely dominate the universities, 'teaching their own students to replace reason with 'Politically Correct' ritual exercises.

In the 1960s, a radical group of psychotherapists challenged the influence of Freudian ideas in America. They were inspired by the ideas of Wilhelm Reich, a pupil of, who had turned against him and was hated by the Freud family. He believed that the inner self did not need to be repressed and controlled. It should be encouraged to express itself.

Out of this came a political movement that sought to create new beings free of the psychological conformity that had been implanted in people's minds by business and politics.

This program shows how this rapidly developed in America through self-help movements like Werber Erhard's Erhard Seminar Training - into the irresistible rise of the expressive self: the Me Generation.

But the American corporations soon realized that this new self was not a threat but their greatest opportunity. It was in their interest to encourage people to feel they were unique individuals and then sell them ways to express that individuality. To do this they turned to techniques developed by Freudian psychoanalysts to read the inner desires of the new self.

Politicians on the left, in both Britain and America, turned to the techniques developed by business to read and fulfill the inner desires of the self.

Both New Labor, under Tony Blair, and the Democrats, led by Bill Clinton, used the focus group, which had been invented by psychoanalysts, in order to regain power. They set out to mold their policies to people's inner desires and feelings, just as capitalism learned to do with products.

Out of this grew a new culture of public relations and marketing in politics, business and journalism. One of its stars in Britain was Matthew Freud who followed in the footsteps of his relation, Edward Bernays, the inventor of public relations in the 1920s.

The politicians believed they were creating a new and better form of democracy, one that truly responded to the inner feelings of individual. But what they didn't realize was that the aim of those who had originally created these techniques had not been to liberate the people but to develop a new way of controlling them.


Stew Albert, a founder of the Yippie Party of the '60's, lamented about what had happened:
     "Basically, the politics were lost and totally replaced by this lifestyle, and then this desire to become deeper and deeper into the self. By now, a grandiose sense of the self. And my good friend and one of the original Yippie founders, Jerry Rubin, definitely moved in that direction.  And I think he was buying into this notion that he could be happy and fully self-developed on his own. Socialism in one person. Although that is, of course -- capitalism."

"Western science started out with a story of a non-living, meaningless, purposeless universe.
It then discovered entropy and said it's all running down.
This is the bleakest creation story anyone ever thought up."
