The splinterswerve Manifesto
"The Brain, within its Groove Runs evenly — and true — But let a Splinter swerve—" (Emily Dickinson)
Patterns of belief run deep in our brains, forming deep grooves from being well trodden and well-worn; these are known as neuropathways. But when we realize that these patterns of belief are just beliefs, they are no more true than any other belief or possible pathway. Not only can we change our minds, but neurobiology has shown that we can actually change our brains.
Splinterswerve's manifesto is to:
"We have to stop consuming our culture, we have to create
culture. Don't watch TV, don't read magazines...this is all
cultural diversion. What is real is you...Reclaim your mind and get it
out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a
half-baked moron who is consuming all this trash that is manufactured
out of the bones of a dying world." - Terrence McKenna
"The Brain, within its Groove Runs evenly -- and true -- But let a Splinter swerve --" Emily Dickinson
