lluminated is a new animated series being created by some of the people behind GNN (Guerrilla News Network), Phong.com (Eminem’s “Mosh”), Pod Collective, Broken Saints, and ConceptArt.org.

Set in the not-too-distant future, planet Earth is being ravaged by rampant environmental change and collapsing economies, as widespread social movements triggered by online interaction are reshaping the face of world politics. Saturated by media, people have lost their ability to dream and plug into a sophisticated communication system each night called the DreamField, which gives them access to a virtual dream-state, networked with the rest of the world. Online, dreams have become just another kind of media, and a group of dreamstars have emerged as the culture’s new celebrities. Coming from an established political family, Aya is one of the most popular dreamstars, and millions plug into her dreams every night to experience her adventures through a hyper-dimensional vide-game reality, live as they sleep.

The series charts Aya’s coming of age as she travels with her guru, Shen, on a transformational journey to visit the most spiritually charged places on Earth – re-connecting with the wisdom-keepers of the planet and re-learning the ancient spiritual traditions to evolve her consciousness and fight to restore humanity’s ability to dream.

A leaked Pentagon report warns Bush that global climate change is real, coming soon, and will destroy the world with war, privation and massive upheaval:

A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

‘Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,’ concludes the Pentagon analysis. ‘Once again, warfare would define human life.’

No worries! The US government is on the job!


An interesting interview with Dr. Christopher Hyatt, an important member of the Regardie/R.A.Wilson/Leary posse who very recently died from cancer. Given the content of AnimamRecro, it was almost impossible not to post the video here.

Let it be a small celebration of his life, his mission and the persona that he projected to the outside world.

Alan Moore discusses magic, science, consciousness and the Jumping Jesus phenomenon.

Reclaim your mind!
