The Acidemic Table of Contents


The way things are going, man, who knows... so I wanted to present the entirety of links and posts thus far in a handy page rather than just the usual link sidebar (many of which disappeared in the great blogger.com code break of 2016). So Behold, a decade + plus of 'sporadically brilliant babble.' (Please Note - this is currently incomplete, workin' on it, as the sane goes. so check back!)
For contributors to the Acidemic site, go to acidemic.com, and/or check a future, separate index, as otherwise it's all too much. It's all too much anyway.

Note: This is all my own work; I'm also assembling a separate contents for the acidemic.com site, which publishes work from curated array of other authors, though a new issue hasn't come out in awhile, it's still ahead of its time. Or behind, and what's the difference? Gehst du here.

ERICH'S GALACTIC ALIGNMENT / AWAKENING EUPHORIA (pre-2012 Apocalypse)
had been doing deep meditation after work every day with a light-sound machine triggered to an Amazon shaman chant, which concurrent with my meds, seemed to electrify my kundalini starting in early November (around the elections), when a voice told me that if I was ready to let go of all judgment, to 'recuse myself from the bench,' all would be revealed, my sins would be lifted, and I could sneak into paradise offered by the galactic alignment of 2012. I went for it, and for around the next 6-7 weeks lived a sainted life. I present my film-based writing from this period in chronological order, for what its worth. I had a freelance gig writing 3-5 New Age music reviews a week for The Daily OM, which kept me in practice (no by-line)

SUPPLEMENT
SWAR OF THE SAINTS
Beginning around mid-November this whole elaborate fusion of (semi-fake) cult and guerilla theater sprang fully formed to my brain, beamed down if you will, replete with elaborate costumes and staging all of which I had access to via working at Pratt Institute. However, plans were scrapped when, beginning around mid-Feb 2013, I had a massive fever - which kept me crazy and bedridden for over a week. When my fever finally broke, the whole plan, the impetus, the will, the drive, to continue with this project was gone, along with my illumination and everything else. Was it celestial Archons 'harvesting' the energy garnered by my cosmic aligned awakening or just a case of weakened immune system due to trying to live totally vegan after a lifetime of meat eating here in a giant Nordic Viking body? Why can't it be both, and more? Either way, I give you the complete rise and fall of this illuminated state, from the first breakthroughs to the first few posts after my massive fever, to a final essay for the Weeklings. I'll be honest, some of it I can't even bring myself to read or see (such as the videos - which I've never watched since the day I made them). I do like the Quetzlcoatl Sutra, though.
