Captain Yount’s Mountain Rescue Dream Team

“Dreams are the touchstones of our characters” ― Henry David Thoreau

Hartford, Connecticut’s Congregationalist pastor Horace Bushnell (1802-1876) was a theological bad-boy.  He raised objections to a wide range of dearly held beliefs of the orthodox Calvinists of his day, apparently making himself so annoying that the local association of Congregationalist churches attempted to administratively bring him up on charges of heresy, but he was a regional rock star so his local congregation unanimously voted to withdraw from the larger consociation, leaving him free to expound on his particular brand of Protestantism.  1,952 more words

What Dreams May Come from Herr Wesermann?

“New roads; new ruts” – Gilbert K. Chesterton

Sigmund Freud once referred to dreams as the “royal road to the unconscious”, which makes them sound pretty important, but reduces them to illusory wish fulfillment in a universe largely unwilling to fulfill your wishes.  2,170 more words

Fear No Evil When You Walk through Oberlin’s Valley of Death

“Death is the veil which those who live call life; They sleep, and it is lifted” – Percy Bysshe Shelley

In the writings of Mircea Eliade, he imagines a hypothetical hominid without religion living in a homogenous, profane space, quickly followed by some savvy primate saying “Holy crap, we’ve got to get these heavens populated” and setting aside some sacred spaces for subsequent, divine real estate speculation.  1,992 more words

OK so this was interesting, but it took me like 4 to 5 years to read it again, or pick it back up I shall say. 863 more words

I Knew These People...

“I knew these people…once…It was a long time ago…”

She looked like she needed to talk, some fragmented ghost of a memory rattling around the caverns of her mind seeking to find a voice. 1,517 more words

The Void (2017) - REVIEW

Let me start this The Void review off with a highly politicized topic: global climate change. Yes, the nefarious “scientists” and “intelligent people” of the world used to call it global warming, but suddenly they want us to call it something different. 634 more words

Review: Unholy Spirits

Interesting historical review of 20th century occultism practiced by the secular establishment. I knew that the CIA and KGB conducted paranormal tests on their victims. North provides a bit more documentation than do others.   316 more words
