Subject: Re: Non-Darwinian Mind [Re: Occupy Time, National Security, DARPA & Wikileaks (Re: Hal Puthoff - CIA RV Evidence for Entanglement Nonlocal Signaling)]

Last night I finished a 17 month study of the  Srepsirrhine  descended sentient prosimian lineage of QWL 1064B-8 commonly referred to by Travel Egg passengers as "Java-4", home of the Akoun Sriwas Island "lemur people."

Precis : Vocal mimicry is the central and unchallenged Axis about which revolve all issues of personal identity and social hierarchy among these velvet furred humanoids, at their current illiterate neolithic level of material culture. Possessing a dual larynx and a hollow saggital crest as an outgrowth of the orbital sinus, their vocal abilities are significantly more complex than any Terran mammal and perhaps only rivaled by our Psittacidae  avians.  Their predominant tone languages are divided into more than forty social stratified and  even inter-clan  and gendered dialects/ sub-languages.  Even more profound is their native facility with vocal mimicry and its unique role in their personal and group identity, for from the earliest age immediately on acquisition of basic spoken language every Sriwasan child begins learning vocal impersonation and its enormously complex  attendant set of rules and taboos.  Impersonation is not a useful term, however, as Sriwasans under strict clan and intra-clan customs do not believe they are impersonating their peers, they and all their peers firmly believe that they have under these conditions not merely 'borrowed' but become  the family member or peer that they imitate with perfect fidelity of vocal, psychological and body language-posture.  The enormous implications and complications of this trans-cultural phenomenon (as indeed even pre-verbal infants from a mere three weeks of age begin to imitate idiosyncratic parental facial expressions and tongue gestures) are the substance of this study.  No Sriwasan is a discrete individual in any sense a Terran human could comprehend,  for when they 'borrow the Voice'  (or even three voice(s) simultaneously using their dual larynx and extremely sophisticated linguistic  neural multi-tasking, which includes registers both below Terran hearing thresholds in the infra-sonic and beyond in the ultra-sound registers)  ;  they are for all intents and purposes completely filling the role of the 'character' they are in a sense 'acting', to the point where their fundamental cultural assumptions leave no room to even doubt that it is 'B' now speaking and not 'A'.  An individual was not observed on any occasion in any attempt to interrupt or 'claim' their own identity during this 'impersonation', though they were free to take on another peer's identity.  Personal nomenclatures are unknown, at most they are approximated by clan and kinship titles.  The actual 'finger print' of the vocal timbre  appears to primarily identify an "individual" as much as the word 'individual' can even be usefully applied, which is  here weakly at best.  In the following paper, I will attempt to begin a deconstruction of the vast complexities of this mimicry and its central role in the culture of the Sriwasan Srepsirrhines, but this is a most simplistic and early examination focusing on only the most elementary of their linguistic and social-hierarchical language variants, with special emphasis on  the rules and taboos regarding 'borrowed speech' among siblings and the additional taboos regarding the assumption of Voice among mated pairs and their single, unmated peers.  Some consideration in all these contexts must also  be given to those who have undertaken to speak for life with  the Voices of  those deceased, as well. One particular case will be examined of a lineage of vocal mimicry which appears to be at least forty  generations  in duration, and the implications this has for Sriwasan mytho-history, oral culture and political leadership.  Final speculation will be included regarding what role vocal mimicry may have to do with the apparent lack of organized violence among these humanoids, and the total lack of mention of conflict or warfare in the entirety of their oral tradition of history and story telling.  We were also not able to document in a single instance even one case of personal violence among these humanoids in any adult specimen, though the very young juveniles did have a tendency to rambunctious personal violence which tapers off swiftly in direct proportion to the sophistication of their  maturation of verbal fluency.

> for "Aimless Kangaroo-Like" Political Gymnastics
> and Says:
> We Will Not Relinquish Any Piece of Palestinian Land
> Following are excerpts from an interview with
> Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, which aired
> on Dream 1 TV on July 21, 2011:
> Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: We in Gaza conducted a plan
> of resistance in order to drive the occupation out.
> The plan was accomplished, and not a single settler
> or soldier remains on the Palestinian land in Gaza.
> Our plan is to continue this approach.
> Today, we have completed the liberation of Gaza,
> and your plan does not... At this moment in time,
> we say to you, first of all: We want Palestine in
> its entirety -- so there will not be any misunderstandings.
> If our generation is unable to achieve this, the next
> one will, and we are raising our children on this.
> Palestine means Palestine in its entirety, and Israel
> cannot exist in our midst.
> Interviewer: But that was your past rhetoric.
> Today, you are talking about the 1967 borders...
> Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: I swear by Allah, this is
> what is on our minds.
> Interviewer: Today, you are talking about
> the 1967 borders.
> Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: Fine, but this is a phase.
> This is just a phase.
> Interviewer: When Abu Ammar [Arafat] used to talk
> about conducting struggle in phases and about give
> and take, you accused him of treason...
> Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: No, we never accuse anyone
> of treason.   We talk about security cooperation
> and leave the interpretation up to you. Let me
> explain to you the difference between Fatah
> and us on this issue. We talk about the liberation
> of the pre-1967 territories, but we do not recognize
> Israel on a single inch of our land. In other words,
> this land will remain ours, and when the balance of
> power changes, we will regain it. We will regain
> the land, even if we have to do so inch by inch.
> So the difference between Fatah and us is clear.
> They sold out 78% of the Palestinian lands and
> consider them to be Israeli lands. They consider
> only 22% of the land to be Palestinian, and even
> that is subject to negotiation. Therefore, anyone
> who says that Hamas has accepted the 1967 borders...
> I would like to make something clear: We will
> establish a state on any piece of land, but
> without giving up on any piece of Palestinian land.
> Interviewer: That was not what you said in the past.
> Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: We have not changed our rhetoric.
> Interviewer: So there has been a development...
> Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: There has been no development
> and no deterioration. That is an actual
> interpretation of what we have achieved.
> We said in the past and we continue to say:
> Palestine in its entirety is Islamic waqf land,
> which cannot be relinquished.

> Mahmoud Abbas is engaged in political gymnastics.
> He made a new jump. After one jump -- the signing
> of the reconciliation agreement -- he's now jumped
> to the so-called "September realization of statehood."
> I don't know who invented this term. "Realization"
> means the demand for one's rights. Who on earth gave
> him the right to mock the people, and to tell them
> that a state is on the way?
> Now, he is incapable of obtaining the status of
> UN member state. He cannot achieve it, because
> the US veto will thwart him. Until now, he has
> been unable to obtain even the status of
> non-member state, because he needs nine countries,
> which is 50% plus one, in order to obtain this
> status in the UN General Assembly. So what does
> he want to gain?
> You are facing somebody whose plan has been
> torn to shreds, whose pond has gone dry, and
> you cannot find even a single frog in it.
> Now he takes us to September, and he postpones
> this reconciliation and its fulfillment until
> September, in case circumstances change and

> there is no veto, and everything is fine -- how
> will he implement this in practice, when the US
> is unable to convince the Israeli occupation to
> stop the settlements for even three months?
> How will he establish this state in practice?
> You are facing aimless, kangaroo-like political

> We liberated Gaza through resistance. We want

> touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself.
> When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in
> the world. Your innermost sense of self, of who you are,
> is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is
> deeper than name and form. [...] Nothing that comes and
> goes is you. 'I am bored.' Who knows this? 'I am angry,
> sad, afraid.' Who knows this? You are the knowing,
> not the condition that is known."
> "If you cannot be at ease with yourself when
> you are alone, you will seek a relationship to
> cover up your unease.
> You can be sure that the unease will then reappear
> in some other form within the relationship, and
> you will probably hold your partner responsible for it.
> All you really need to do is accept this moment fully.
> You are then at ease in the here and now and at
> ease with yourself.
> But do you need to have a relationship with yourself
> at all? Why can't you just be yourself?
> When you have a relationship with yourself, you have
> split yourself into two: 'I' and 'myself,' subject
> and object. That mind-created duality is the root cause
> of all unnecessary complexity, of all problems and
> conflict in your life. In the state of enlightenment,
> you are yourself - 'you' and 'yourself' merge into one.
> You do not judge yourself, you do not feel sorry for
> yourself, you are not proud of yourself, you do not
> love yourself, you do not hate yourself, and so on.
> The split caused by self reflective consciousness
> is healed, its curse removed. There is no 'self'
> that you need to protect, defend, or feed anymore.
> When you are enlightened, there is one relationship
> that you no longer have: the relationship with yourself.
> Once you have given that up, all your other relationships
> will be love relationships." ::: -- Eckhart Tolle
