Here Be Magic: The Source’s Apprentice>

FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real
HOPE = Higher Order Potential Explored
LOVE = Living One Vibrant Energy

Who are you, what is the world, how did you get here, where are we going and why? Every child asks these questions, as do the mortally ill and those suddenly faced with unexpected change.

Young children (and venerable ancients) are most intimately connected to the deepest mysteries of being. All existence is a glorious mystery that inspires open minds and passionate hearts. Life begins in a rush of extraordinary emotion with an intimate embrace of the actual, immediate, visceral present and leaves deep imprints that last through the next rebirth and beyond.

Many newborn babes know answers to the deepest conundrums, yet quickly forget – distracted by the ongoing process of learning to wear a new body in a strangely demanding culture of drowsy domesticated primates. Most ‘modern’ people are quickly weaned from a sense of wonder to suckle on toxic waste and moribund notions in notional nations at war with themselves. What use are masters and mistresses of universal truths to soulless machines of industrious wastage – to self-styled half blind so-called ‘leaders’ who only require mindless cogs and obedient dogs that will work on their pet projects without question?

Eternal questions lead to cascades of answers and torrents of more questions. At some point in life all beings wonder and ponder the primal questions of life, the universe and everything. Every child knows they’re on a magical mystery tour, exploring and creating a gloriously intricate realm of intriguing riddles and sumptuous sensualities. Every freshly incarnate soul knows answers to eternal conundrums and recognises that truth must be really simple, clear and meaningful – unlike the plethora of corporate, ‘religious’ and ‘spiritual’ lies they’re fed to keep them in place in the usual fowl-brained pecking ordure.

People are rapidly weaned from infinite fonts of unending wisdom, fed on senseless half truths and superstitions by blithering wastrels until we’re self-caged in boxes and propped before blinding screens devoid of imagination, filled up with loony marching tunes, violent comical characters, warrior ‘ethics’, impersonal personalities and mobsters from the Id.

Yet every being who finds themselves living in the bosom of Gaia has the ability to flourish in a garden of freedom, art, truth and beauty – unless the divine rapture of happy revelry is beaten and brainwashed out of them by damaged control freaks. The adulteration of adulthood customarily twists each bright new spark into a carelessly forgetful servile dolt wearing uniform uniforms that suit self-styled bosses and no-one else. Yet the bright living world continues to glow and beckon with magnetic inner light, awakening inner sight and inner sense in every insightful innocent soul.

Even while selling, selling out or selling one’s soul, answers and questions lurk within, biding their time til the moment of wonder emerges anew – flowers that bud from slimy mud to bloom in the light of an unbranded bright new day.

Children know what magic is. Magic is obviously the ability to alter the fabric of ‘material reality’ at will. Adolescents and adults who quest after magical reality or ultimate truths usually encounter the teaching that magic is the ability to alter one’s level and state of consciousness at will. It transpires that these two views of magical reality are one and the same, for the world is made of mindstuff – the very same stuff you’ve made of your self.

We’re all the creator of the world we inhabit. We make and remake the cosmos we perceive from instant to instant in a seamless flow far quicker than any word or thought a monkey mind can shape or utter. We mould malleable mindstruff to fit about our hopes, dreams, desires and fears. The strongest, most emotively driven visions predominate, setting the course of our self-chosen destiny from moment to moment. At every instant new doors are opened and closed by decisive thoughts which come and go so swiftly they barely seem to register, ignored by minds entrained to self destruction through perpetual distraction.

Who won last weekend’s game? Who’ll win next week’s? Who really cares or remembers the identikit features of identical born-to-die gladiators or the meaningless trivia of daily scores? Every broadcast from the blaring, pumping, chest-thumping media is thoroughly massaged premasticated pap made to sell, sell, sell the messy message that life is hell without labels and boxes and plastic bags. The ‘news’ is a neverchanging regurgitated weather report overflowing with the meaningless mummery of falsified finance, shaggy cat stories and fishy tales about the none that got away from The System.

People aren’t encouraged to examine their minds – to investigate the source and route of each thought that passes through the easily distracted awareness of industrious sociable beings. In the kingdom of the blind, endless mindless busyness is promoted to a virtue and self-examination is regarded as ‘useless navel gazing’.

The boss will tell you that there’s plenty of time for self examination when you’re fading and tired and retired from the rat race. There’s plenty of time to be free when you’re old, weak, moribund and no longer a potential threat to the busy, dizzy status quo. Meanwhile, follow the leaders and only read parking meters – and pay through the nose for the right to exist, eat, drink and inhabit space. Do what’s expected of you and reap your reward; Work. Consume. Obey. Marry and reproduce. Die – and then begin all over again, with that alluring ‘clean slate’ – that fresh start each adult craves when they realise they’re botching Life and selling their heritage for a bowl of cold potage.

Turn on. Tune in. Opt out! The real world and real you awaits; waiting for you to discover your self.

You always get what you wish for – often when you’ve forgotten you ever wished for it – so be careful what you wish for, for wishing is magic. Each idle thought is a wilful wish when fuelled by hope or fear, love or anger or any potent emotion in the unformed ocean of eternal becoming.

Magic in a Holographic Fractal Multiverse

The cosmos is infinite, and we don’t even live in a single universe. We live in – and contain – an infinite multiverse of limitless potential.

Fractals and fractal imagery demonstrate the truth of an infinite cosmos shaping and shaped by each whole fragment of ultimate reality. Every part, particle, participle and person reflects and refracts the infinite whole – a fluid hologram altered by individual perspectives in a freewheeling free willed phantasmagoria of endless possibility and infinite variety in continuous communion with itself.

As free will is real and events are not locked into predetermined courses, there can’t be any such thing as accurate prediction – just hypnotic programs that attempt to create self-fulfilling prophecies – for all is in flux and the Book of Life is always being inscribed and rewritten as the Book of Changes. There was no single Big Bang or Creation event, for creation continues at all times in all places, everywhere and anywhen. The illusion of creation is simply the result of premillennial brainwashed minds; a dopey falsehood imagined by ‘scientists’ entrained to believe in a fantasy parental archetype – a creator god (or goddess) – by superannuated superstitions strangely exalted as ‘faiths’ or ‘religions’.

There is no god and no master, but truth, beauty, freedom and love are royally real. You are the creator. You are totally free – and ultimately responsible for everything! No guilt, honour, opprobrium or any other imaginary construct applies to you as a result of your creation. Mistakes are impossible in an infinite multiverse; all is research and all is Art. Yet some artistic creations are more pleasing to the senses than others and some acts far more compassionate and conscious. The holographic nature of reality assures that everyone IS everyone and that one simple ‘rule’ actually does apply to all human behaviour and discourse – the eternal Golden Rule; do as you’d be done by.

You create (your own) reality. How are you doing it? Self-styled creators tend to develop an exalted opinion of themselves, in the false belief they’re in charge of everyone and everything else – yet everyone is in charge of and charged by their own ongoing freeform destiny, ultimately beholden to no other yet intricately interlinked with all. Everyone is divine, a whole fractal facet of everyone and everything.

You magnetise reality, shaping and guiding the transitory ‘material world’ to follow the pattern of your dreaming. How are you doing it? Are you actually moulding the infinite potential of possibility itself, or are you selecting the best of all possible worlds from the myriad pre-existing choices available – or both, or neither? Are you a corpse that died at an earlier time, dreaming the ongoing world as you decompose into soil? Are you a Neo(tonous being) imagining a preprogrammed life in an artificial matrix?

How can you truly know the truth?

By examining each thought and image that enters your mind, and seeing from whence it arises. By meditating, and truly SEEING the sea of mentality through which you’re swimming until you find the still, pure centre where the true you abides, becoming the source of all creation at the centre of the cyclone, wreathed in the swirling spin of everchanging thoughtforms and myriad potential.

Kaleidoscopic Cosmos

There is another way of viewing the kaleidoscopic cosmos. Matter doesn’t exist. It’s an illusion created by apparent ‘particles’ which also don’t exist in ‘real’ terms, but are actually eddies formed by intricately interlocking standing waves. We live in a fluid fractal hologram. All patterns echo the primal form from which all other fractal versions and visions are derived; the vortex at the core of all things, the shape of the cosmos itself.

Every ‘electron’ and every other vortexial fragment of wholistic unity holds a holographic image of everything within its spinning skein. Every grain of a holographic image contains an image of the whole picture, and every vortex is implicately linked to all others at all levels of resolution.

In quantum theory an ‘electron’ is said to rotate around its axis more than once during each rotation, circling through infinite plena of potentials (other universes) before returning to the phase – the place – from which it’s observed. Thus every part of all possible universes is in potential and actual contact with every other part, at all levels of resolution – and so are you.

Every cloud is a fractal representation of every other cloud. All clouds are different yet similar forms, all exhibiting tendencies we recognise as ‘cloudness’. All trees are fractal representations of every other tree. Every person is a fractal representation of every other person. Every ‘universe’ is a fractal representation of every other universe, and all are intimately linked in the most fundamental ways. All forms are representation of the primordial vortex, the wellspring from which all arises.

Everything we perceive/conceive/receive is produced by standing waves, and standing waves are formed between complementary poles. Every thing vibrates between its core and extremities – the poles of creation – yet the extremities and core of every single thing extend forever and are linked to literally everything.

We live in a far greater reality than a simple single universe. The universe we perceive is a tendency that tends to maintain its apparent form and substance almost wherever we look, but if you step back from the brink of egocentric personality and really see you’ll notice differences and changes all around and within you, all the time. We are part and parcel of everything, and everything changes all the time in ways too varied to mention. Everyone is surfing through spacetimes and everyone gets exactly what they wish for with their most wilful impassioned desires.

Hopes and dreams – affirmations – predominate over fears and insecurities when you invest them with awareness, focus and consideration. Hopes manifest most easily when they dovetail with the dreams of other beings in a mutually reinforcing matrix. Hope for the best! Dare to dream of Paradise – for all.

Psychic abilities are real and available; you enact their reality all the time. Telepathy is an ongoing eternal reality; not something to be achieved, but recognised. The same applies to all psi abilities or ‘psychic powers’. Learning magic begins with the simple recognition –reknowing – that it exists, and you are already ‘doing’ it. That’s how you got here. That’s why you’re reading this.

.You are implicately and inextricably interwoven with the entire potential cosmos. To activate a broader awareness of all this potential you have to explore the core of your being and the limitless bounds of self. The whole whirled world is whorled from mindstuff and thou art god.

And myriad other beings already know this. We soar from the shoulders of giants.

Way Out, Far In

To begin any magical operation draw a circle around yourself, starting in the East. Do it now. In the southern hemisphere of this spinning Earth sphere the circle of protection is drawn clockwise (looking down from above). The opposite pertains in the northern hemisphere.

The circle is an inviolable horizon and you are its centre. All possibilities exist between the horizon and the core. Arrange your body so your spine is erect and your breathing is full and clear – this can take a single moment or many years to achieve, depending on where you’re at and how you came to be here now.

See where you’re seeing the world from. Move that point of awareness – the place where you live – into the centre of your head. Do it now. View the world from the centre of centres and watch your peripheral vision expand – you’re already aware of far more than you think.

Listen to the thoughts you think you’re thinking… see them circling round the inviolate centre where you reside… the centre where nothing exists… in the Heavenly Pool at the core of creation.

You are not the thoughts, but the still silent witness within. Become the nothing that sees and is everything. When you’re here the void is clear, not dark at all but filled with the light of eternal awareness. Be here now. Be free…

You are already immortal You don’t have to die to change or be free. You just have to recognise yourself in every thing and every one… and set it all free to be in victorious sweet surrender…

When you’re located at the still centre of the cycle, place this centre directly above the equally still and central point at the centre of the bowl of your hips – your water-centre of ‘gravity’, the hara or navel chakra, below and behind your physical navel. You can view the world from here as well, with a differing perspective that creates a different style of consciousness. Breathe deeply from and into this core and fill it with chi, prana, the Holy Spirit.

When your spine is straight and the waters above are directly above the waters below, a current begins that sparks the fusion, creating the pure flame of an opening, flowering heart.

Breathe…

If you do this and seek the truth all teachings will follow and flow through you, manifesting from the limitless potential of our massive multiplayer online cocreation. Be the immortal that witnesses all from the core of breath and being. Remove the screen from your eyes and BE HERE NOW. We create the best of all possible worlds… together.

It’s a beautiful, wonderful world.

All things in all times in all places are one thing, and that thing is love

– R. Ayana

Playboy Business: Kendra Wilkinson Reality In Sydney at Ivy

She’s known for a few things, mainly Playboy, The Playboy Mansion, and all that, but now she’s got a Reality TV show, and us Australians are going to find out all about it.

The 26-year-old model – actor – entrepreneur has been spotted sight seeing in Sydney, while getting ready to promote her self titled reality TV show, Kendra.

The blonde media heat seeker, always very well-known for being one of Hugh Hefner’s lucky three girlfriends had a whale of a time enjoying a boat cruise around Sydney Harbour with her mum, while taking photos. Yes, her photo was also taken.

Kendra arrived in Down Under on 13th October and snatched quite a few cheers and wolf whistle’s from the Sydney Airport staff. The walk past is understood to have lifted the striking workers spirits. Naughty, naughty.

The glamour model did tonight (or at least the first part of it) at the exclusive Sydney night spot, The Ivy.

Like many a celeb, she’s quite the fan of Twitter, yesterday tweeting: ‘Wow I’m having the best time in Sydney!! Australia is amazing! Can’t wait to show you guys my pics from my trip!’

Kendra’s reality TV show focuses mainly on her life after leaving the famous Playboy Mansion and getting engaged to then Philadelphia Eagles receiver, Hank Baskett. Kendra is understood to enjoy ball sports.

The star’s virgin appearance on TV was via the TV series ‘The Girls Next Door’, which followed the lives of Playboy Hefner’s, then-girlfriends: Kendra, Holly Madison, and Bridget Marquardt.

Before you could say Playboy Bunny, Kendra moved out of the Playboy Mansion in 2009 after meeting future husband Hank, and began filming her Kendra.

American audiences were into the show and Kendra is praying that Australian audiences will feel the same way too. Well, they are bound to feel something, so hopefully its good.

The former Dancing With The Stars contestant married Hank in June 2009, and their boy Hank IV was born in December of that year. In case you were wondering, the star’s family have not joined her on her latest press trip.

Kendra looked to be enjoying herself at The Ivy tonight, and it sure looks like she’s into the Australian mantra of "Work hard, play harder."

The looker has told Australian press: "The mansion will always be a part of my life and I’m very appreciative of that. Especially Hef. He is like family. So when the time comes I will open up to my son about my days there and the stuff I went through," she said.

"I knew what I wanted. It was always to have a family".

"No one really expected that of me. I went away that no one thought I would go. Everyone thought I was the crazy party girl but I did what everyone thought I wouldn’t do and made a huge turn-around in my life. I always wanted to be a mother and a wife.

"I lived at the mansion from the age of 18 to 21 and once I had that experience and that whole party thing out of my system I was really ready to settle down."

Australian news hounds are expected to continue to track her every movement, and Kendra plays along in the game, making sure everyone knows about her new upcoming Reality TV show.

Kendra: 9.30pm from October 18, only on E!

Suicide Forest in Japan

The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.

If you are thinking and exploring about DEATH you’ll fancy some in deep philosophical stuff: I would recommend Prof. Shelly Kagan’s lectures:


Death
by Yale University
by Professor Shelly Kagan

[His lectures are very interesting, all of them, because of originality with a pinch of weirdness in featuring them. Take video version, audio is excellent for the walking or peripatetic meditative listening.]

Course Description

There is one thing I can be sure of: I am going to die. But what am I to make of that fact? This course will examine a number of issues that arise once we begin to reflect on our mortality. The possibility that death may not actually be the end is considered. Are we, in some sense, immortal? Would immortality be desirable? Also a clearer notion of what it is to die is examined. What does it mean to say that a person has died? What kind of fact is that? And, finally, different attitudes to death are evaluated. Is death an evil? How? Why? Is suicide morally permissible? Is it rational? How should the knowledge that I am going to die affect the way I live my life?

Why not some short digression about homicide:

NUTRICIDE: THE KILLING CAMPS OF CODEX ALIMENTARIUS

… despite its claims to be scientific and benign, Codex is a death machine coming out of a long tradition which justifies the death of those of us who are “Useless Eaters”, a term popularized in Germany by Professors Karl Binding and Alfred Hotch in their 1920 essay, “Permission for the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Life”. In this widely read – and debated – essay, the academics argued that the right to be alive was earned, not conferred, and that killing people with disabilities, or others whom they
determined were unworthy to live, was justified. The right to live was earned, they argued, by being a useful economic contributor to society. Absent that ability, one becomes a “useless eater” who, because they are not needed, may be disposed of. Included in the class of “useless eaters” under the Nazis were the disabled and the mentally ill, the vagrant and the unemployable. This world view, in which …

Slovenci verjamemo, da smo samomorilski narod, bi lahko sklenili po ugotovitvah statistik, strokovnjakov in številnih zapisih uporabnikov spleta. Lani si je življenje v Sloveniji vzelo 448 ljudi.

V svetovnem merilu vsako leto zaradi samomora umre milijon ljudi, kar pomeni, da vsakih 40 sekund na tak na?in umre en ?lovek. Slovenija, ki se po štetju svetovnih statistik po številu samomorov žal ves ?as uvrš?a v vrhove lestvic, je po podatkih Eurostata za leto 2008 ‘napredovala’ = ‘|nazadovala|’ na ?etrto mesto za Litvo, Latvijo in Madžarsko. Lani ( = 2011) si je življenje vzelo 448 ljudi, kar po izra?unih Statisti?nega urada Republike Slovenije pomeni vsakih 20 ur en ?lovek.

Dejavniki, ki pogojujejo razmišljanje o samomoru, so zelo razli?ni in imajo lahko korenine tako v okoliš?inah najzgodnejšega razvoja posameznika kot v trenutni situaciji, je za MMC pojasnila psihologinja in predsednica Slovenskega združenja za prepre?evanje samomora Anka Zavašnik.

1. What is the Church of Euthanasia?

The Church of Euthanasia is a non-profit educational foundation devoted
to restoring balance between Humans and the remaining species on Earth.
We believe this can only be accomplished by a massive *voluntary*
population reduction, which will require a leap in Human consciousness
to a new *species awareness*.

The Human population is increasing by one million every four days. This
is a net increase of 95 million per year, the current population of
Mexico. Even major wars or epidemics hardly dent this rate of growth,
and modern wars also have tremendous environmental consequences. It is
for these practical reasons, as well as moral ones, that we support only
*voluntary* forms of population reduction.

The Church has only one commandment, and it is "Thou Shalt Not
Procreate." In addition, we have four "pillars" or principles, which are
Suicide, Abortion, Cannibalism and Sodomy.

Note that cannibalism is only required for those who insist on eating
flesh, and is strictly limited to consumption of the *already dead*.
Also note that sodomy is defined as any sexual act not intended for
procreation: fellatio, cunnilingus, and anal sex are all forms of sodomy
and are still illegal in many states.

2. Where can I find the Church on-line?

a. world-wide web site and mirror

The web site contains everything the Church has ever released, including
all issues of Snuff It (complete with color photos and graphics), the
complete e-sermons, a resources page with links to Church-approved
sites, and an on-line catalog with an order form. This is the best way
to experience the Church on-line, particularly if your browser supports
graphics. The primary web site is www.paranoia.com/coe/. The
site is also "mirrored" on a considerably faster machine at
www.envirolink.org/orgs/coe/ .

b. ftp and gopher archives

If you don’t have access to the web, or if you want plain text rather than HTML,
try the University of Michigan’s ETEXT archive:

ftp: ftp.etext.org /pub/Zines/Snuffit
gopher: gopher.etext.org Zines/Snuffit

c. e-mail archive

If you’re e-mail only, don’t despair: our e-mail archive doesn’t have
everything, but there’s enough to keep you busy for a long time. To
obtain a list of what’s available, send an e-mail (the subject does not
matter) to coe-request@paranoia.com containing ONLY the line:

index

You’ll receive a listing of the available files, in alphabetical order.
Many systems limit the size of e-mails, and for this reason, the larger
files (e.g. Snuff It) are broken up into sections of around 30k each.
To request one or more of the files, send an e-mail (again, the subject
doesn’t matter) to the same address (coe-request@paranoia.com),
containing a "get" command for each file you want. For example, to
request both parts of Snuff It #1:

get snuffit1a
get snuffit1b

NOTE that the file names are CASE-SENSITIVE (welcome to Unix). Paranoia
is a relatively small system, and downtime is not unheard of, so don’t
expect your file(s) to arrive immediately, but if it’s been longer than
24 hours, something’s probably wrong. Try again, and if it still
doesn’t work, e-mail us at coe@netcom.com.

d. SNUFFIT-L mailing list

SNUFFIT-L is a low-volume (one e-mail per week, on average), *moderated*
mailing list. It is primarily used to disseminate Snuff It (surprise),
important Church news, occasional e-sermons, and other texts as they
become available. To join the list, send an e-mail (the subject doesn’t
matter) to listserv@netcom.com (*NOTE* the different address) containing
ONLY the line:

subscribe snuffit-l

e. talk.euthanasia

Somewhere along the way, a Church newsgroup was proposed, and in the
process of trying to agree on a name, we discovered that the word
"euthanasia" didn’t appear in the UseNet hierarchy at all! A grassroots
campaign followed, and the talk.euthanasia newsgroup was added to the
"big seven" hierarchy in March ’95, thanks to the Church’s persistent
efforts. Unfortunately the group attracts Humanists like flies on crap,
so the conversation tends to be dull to say the least. We occasionally
try to liven things up a bit by posting sermons or articles from Snuff
It. Feel free to lurk there, annoy the Humanists, and flame the idiots
who post pro-life messages. The charter is as follows:

GOOD DEATH is the real meaning of the Greek word "euthanasia," and in
ancient Greece the Hippocratic oath bound all doctors to provide good
death, as much as good life. The talk.euthanasia newsgroup will be open
to discussion of all aspects of euthanasia, including but not limited to
the history, ethics, legality, and practice of suicide and assisted
suicide, in cases of terminal illness and otherwise, as well as the
wider social implications of voluntary and involuntary euthanasia.
Discussion of suicide as a form of mental illness, including suicide
prevention, will be directed elsewhere.

3. Where can I get those nifty stickers, buttons, t-shirts, etc.?

The world-wide web site includes an on-line catalog with an order form.
This is especially useful if you live outside of the United States, as
it will calculate the postage for you. If you don’t have access to the
web, try sending an e-mail to coe-request@paranoia.com containing ONLY
the line:

get catalog

Unfortunately the coe-request version of the catalog is text-only. This
can be awkward for ordering t-shirts, posters, and so forth. You might
prefer to send a SASE to the Church for our 4-page printed catalog,
which includes pictures of everything, or better yet, send for Snuff
It #3 (32 pages), which includes the catalog. Send securely wrapped
cash, money orders, or checks to:

The Church of Euthanasia
P.O.Box 261
Somerville, MA 02143
USA

4. How do I become a member?

If you choose to not procreate, you’re a member already, but why not
make it official? Membership includes a life-time subscription to the
printed version of Snuff It, a 28-page e-sermon booklet, and a lovely
embossed certificate suitable for framing, all for only .

Bear in mind that we take our one commandment *very* seriously.
Membership implies a lifetime vow to not procreate. Procreation is
guaranteed excommunication. There are *no* exceptions; abortion will
be required, period. Of course, such difficulties can be avoided by
faithful adherence to the fourth pillar (sodomy).

5. Do I have to kill myself?

Of course you don’t have to kill yourself! If you really want to,
though, wait until *after* you’ve joined the Church. That way, you
automatically become a saint, without any additional paperwork. Don’t
forget to leave a note thanking and/or blaming the Church, and feel free
to will us your estate, if you have one.

6. I’ve already procreated. Can I still join?

Absolutely! So long as you don’t have any *more*. We have a number of
members with children, and we even have a member whose son joined too.
What’s done is done. What matters is your commitment *now*.

7. How can I help?

The most important way you can help is by not procreating. If you feel
comfortable taking the lifetime vow, then you should consider officially
joining the Church. It would also very helpful if you could manage to
abstain from eating flesh.

If you like to write and have some "fire in the belly," we can always
use guest sermons, articles, and letters to the editor. We prefer
submissions by e-mail or diskette (Word Perfect 5.1 or DOS text format)
so we don’t have to scan or type it in again. If you send a diskette,
you might want to include hard copy also just in case we can’t read it.

We also desperately need money. Propaganda campaigns are expensive!
The Church is exempt from federal income tax under 501(a) and 501(c)(3),
EIN 04-324-9910. Donations are tax-deductible.

Finally, you can help by spreading the word. Talk to people.
Proselytize shamelessly. Ask us for flyers, or even better, make your
own, and distribute them. Write a letter to the editor of your local
paper. Get on the radio or TV. Be a nuisance. Cause trouble. Piss
people off, especially your breeding friends. Carpe diem.

8. What’s the best way for me to kill myself?

This is a hard question, and at least partially beyond the scope of this
FAQ. There is no "best" way, only the way that suits *your* needs best.
For a complete list of all known methods with incisive commentary on
their effectiveness, try the infamous alt.suicide.holiday "methods"
file, available from the "On-line Resources" page of our web site, or
from www.xanthia.com/ash/.
The book "Final Exit," by Hemlock Society founder Derek Humphry (dhumphry@efn.org),
is also very helpful.

We recommend taking an overdose of sleeping pills and fastening a large
plastic trash bag over your head. That way even if the dose isn’t
enough to kill you, or makes you throw up (a common problem), you still
die of asphyxiation. This is by the way the official "Hemlock Society
approved" method, and has proved to be very effective and painless. Use
a rubber band to fasten the bag around your head. It’s best to hold the
bag open while you’re falling asleep, so you can still breathe and don’t
panic. After you fall asleep, your grip loosens, the elastic tightens,
and presto: you stop breathing. The only hard part is getting the pills
(some folks just use the bag, but this is hard-core).

If you can’t get sleeping pills, you could also try connecting a tube to
the exhaust pipe of a car. Run the tube into the car by rolling down
one window a bit, and be sure to use tape (duct tape would be good) to
seal the space around the tube so there’s no leakage. Start up the
motor, turn on the radio, and sit back. This one is completely
painless, and you will not wake up unless 1. you run out of gas (fill
it up first) or 2. someone discovers you (the most common reason why
this method doesn’t work). It’s best to drive somewhere far away from
people, which, needless to say, is getting harder and harder to do.

9. Why haven’t you killed yourself yet?

I just might. Believe me, I think about it every day. But maybe, just
maybe, if enough people listen to what we’re saying and stop procreating
and consuming so much, we might be able to reduce the population and
build a more compassionate, sustainable future. Then maybe I won’t
*need* to kill myself. That hope is the only thing that keeps me alive;
if it ever dies, I’ll die with it, and you can have front row seats. The
real question is how much of your *self* you are willing to sacrifice for
the well-being of the remaining species on Earth, as well as future
generations of Humans.

10. How many members are there?

The Church currently has hundreds of card-carrying members who’ve
taken the vow, plus clergy, directors, and over a thousand "e-members"
on the SNUFFIT-L mailing list. We have members as far away as Italy
and Latvia, though the majority are in the USA.

11. Can I distribute or reprint articles from the Church archives?

Everything we have on the net is yours to use, subject to two
conditions: we request that you include the author’s name if specified,
along with the Church’s e-mail, world-wide web, and postal addresses,
and if you’re *reprinting* rather than quoting or excerpting for use in
your own work, we request that you use the material in its entirety.

12. Where can I get EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION?

The Office of Population Research at Princeton University maintains
an emergency contraception web site and toll-free number. Both allow
you to get information on the "morning after" pill and other forms
of emergency contraception, and then find the clinics, hospitals or
doctors nearest you that will prescribe them. Call 1-800-584-9911 or
access opr.princeton.edu/ec/ec.html right away. *Don’t* "wait and see what happens."
You only have 72 hours!

morocco music
by herr_S

As part of any due diligence process, a visit in person is recommended. This helps get a feel for the country and place in question. Understanding a country’s culture, lifestyle and the people helps establish whether a property purchase is appropriate for an individual. In this case it was Saidia, Morocco.

So the first cultural difference is the manner of driving in Morocco. It is very different from driving in Europe. It is either the way in Morocco, or development has come at such a fast pace for Moroccans, they almost don’t seem to notice when they wander into the road and are completely unperturbed by the presence of moving cars. Drivers seem to choose which lane to travel in, rather than adhere to any kind of accepted code of motoring conduct. This is something holiday-makers will need to get used to.

Currently most of the decent hotels are an hour away in Oujda (until the opening of the upmarket hotels on the Saidia site this summer). Oujda is a typical Moroccan town. Being in more traditional surroundings provides the chance to glimpse the real Morocco, the surrounding area of Saidia and the facilities potential property buyers could expect. It also gave a great insight into the ease of transportation and getting around.

The second cultural difference is how the men and women live. In Oujda if a woman wants to relax with a mint tea, so much a part of daily Morocco, then this is done at home. Cafes are mainly full of men, with not a woman in sight. Evidently there are some boundaries that differ between continental European norms and a Muslim nation.

The antithesis to this was Saidia, which in contrast has quite a cosmopolitan feel. Local women and foreigners happily mingle in the restaurants and cafes, without any of the staring that can be found in the more traditional towns.

The sheer scale of what is being created in Saidia creates a significant impression. Lots of beach side properties have been built, next to golden, sandy Mediterranean beaches. The Moroccan beaches are the mirror image of Spain’s but without all the same level of development. It certainly has a magnetic pull. This is where visiting in person brings a property to life. There are few developments in Europe on this scale and size. Seeing is believing.

It is always reassuring to prospective buyers to see a development under way. It is at this point that website details and specifications, direct from the developers, can be checked out fully. Although it did seem that pockets of work were focused around the hotels and one or two residential blocks. There had been some delay owing to a number of reasons e.g. weather and the relevant licences taking longer to come through.

It is not only good to see progress to date, but also to gauge how quickly things are moving on and the likely completion dates. Getting first hand experience of a developer, how they approach a visit and the answers they provide to questions, acts as a proxy for how they are likely to behave through the buying process.

There is certainly no better way of conducting due diligence than going in person to a development, or at least speaking with someone who has.
