“2021-02-18b Egodeath Mystery Show.mp3” – probably wasn’t created; master tapes only

I doubt I’ll upload this long utility episode. I might listen to it. You can see the topics below in the show notes/agenda. No core Egodeath theory content, I think. Meta ideas about show format, vocal use.

March 6, 2021 – I doubt I created project or mp3. only have wavs?

    • turns out, avoid saying “best”, use neutral filename/title of “clips”.
  • 3 17 30 timestamp. topic: discussed “best” vs “clips”. long, “deep cuts” version of an episode, vs. the shortened, “radio cut” version of the episode.
  • 3 22 00 + 4 16 [NOTE – TAPE DECK STARTS NEW .WAV FILE AUTO’LY AT 3 HRS 22 MIN; CLOCK RESETS TO 0:00 THEN] timestamp. topic: 4 hour mystery episode then make 2 hour shortened version.
    • 1. Record a 4-hour “variety show” version of the episode.
    • 2. Create a shortened 2-hour “core Egodeath theory topics only” version of the (same) episode. (an “empirical” show-creation approach)

  • __ timestamp. topic: __
  • OUTCOME: RESOLUTION:
    • The Board of Mystics has decided to not use much the utilitarian standalone clips of isolated voice recordings (use it selectively); USE ALL THE OPTIONS.
      • long episode (“full episode”)
      • shortened same episode (“core episode”), with list of retained topics, but no timestamps needed – decide whether to use this format, on a per-case basis.
      • isolated voice clips – decide whether to use this format, on a per-case basis. eg Hane 2012 double-reading the other day.
    • We surmise from experience with the 2007 & 2018 standalone voice recordings, that shortened “core” versions of the “full” episodes of the Egodeath Mystery Show will get more usage/plays, than isolated voice recordings. this will require timestamps/guide.
      • In some cases, can freely choose to deliver isolated voice rec’g clips instead or in addition to the shortened, “core” episode. Selectively provide certain clips as isolated voice rec’gs, as done with the Hane 2012 EE article double-sentence read-aloud.
    • Producing/managing/presenting a set of isolated voice recordings just isn’t, or doesn’t seem, very inspiring/exciting – except, do this in some cases.
  • 3 22 00 + 54 07 timestamp. topic: making decisions on format after having discussed.
  • 3 22 00 + 1 04 17 timestamp. topic: listed OPTIONS, both “core version” shortened same ep, AND option of isolated voice clips; choose option on per-case basis (ie per-episode basis)
  • 0:00 timestamp. topic: [note: timestamp was reset to 0:00 again b/c chip filled; this is the 3rd .wav file for this episode. error: should have noted file length & name before ejecting storage]
  • 0 14 48 timestamp. topic: low pitch is not the goal;
    • varying pitch med-to-low is the goal. for my ideal “dream voice” that I’d *love* to have. just a *great* neutral, natural sounding voice. an ear-training driven, aesthetics-definition-driven, approach to transcending the voice; transcendent control of the voice. define dream target; train ear, train the GUARD FUNCTION to alert to re-voice a phrase/utterance.
      • make the “pitch > medium” range off-limits; alert when that happens, to revoice.
  • 26 21 timestamp. topic:
    • Defined the aesthetics of “casual standard voice”.
    • Deciding whether to pitch the “topical segment” heavy structuring.

Content

There’s more than just this topic:
todo: list other topics:

This take (17b) Failed its intention of demo’ing Repeat Phrase; colossal Fail at Repeat Phrase 🗑 😭 🤨 😵, but has good Egodeath theory content, so, I’ll release this take (“take 1”), for its great Egodeath theory content.

Hypothesis: my chest was in awful state, and that distracted me from remembering to do Repeat Phrase. Proof: Even my read-aloud sounds pretty bad chest-vocals (“lost access to the bottom half of my chest”).

In a later replay (17c recording), I was easily able to out-do & revoice even my warmup read-aloud, which is usually quite good.

After this 17b take, I was mad at this take for forgetting to Repeat Phrase – but, I had to admit that the content of idea development here was quite solid (and the voicing is fairly good).

I almost trashcanned this 17b recording, for failing to Repeat Phrase!

This recording just needs a couple timestamps, there are worthy gems here (the discussion of voicing is good, too; just not on-topic for Egodeath).

4. First Topical Segment:
Working-up Toward a Demonstration of the “Repeat Phrase” Technique While Speaking Off-the-Cuff

In this segment, and throughout this entire episode, I demonstrate the “repeat phrase” technique whenever speaking off-the-cuff, and whenever reading-aloud.

The “Repeat Phrase” Technique Breakthrough for Transcendent Control of Voicing

the key is “repeat phrase”!

Big milestone announcement: modified prophecy that I made:

The universal solution to all voice problems or goals is: repeat phrase.

This “repeat phrase” technique is even better than “double reading each sentence”, and applies to all forms of writing and speaking, eg lists of items, mega long compound sentences from Hanegraaff/ academia.edu, all forms of vocal utterances.

Thus “repeat phrase” is a UNIVERSAL technique for all types of voicing (reading, off-the-cuff), and for all stylistic goals, such as: affectation, sarcasm, AND voice actor work.

CYBERNETIC LOOP LOCKED-IN TO GOAL PURSUIT! 🎉

🎙 🎶 🎉

🍄 🏆 🍄 🏆

To reach that double holy grail at last, of Standard (neutral, non-affectation) Voice, *even* while doing off-the-cuff speaking/idea development: repeat phrase.

No matter what your goal tone/voicing is, the “repeat phrase” technique always works, and directly works to head straight to the target.

Announcement: new extreme double-reading approach, more granular and universal, and applies to speaking off-the-cuff as well! Repeat each *phrase*/clause/utterance (not “sentence”) twice.

So, this episode of the Egodeath Mystery Show is focused on demonstrating “repeat phrase”, both while reading aloud and while off-the-cuff speaking.

Including — but not depending on — brand new technique idea this morning, of playing back an immediately previous recording of off-the-cuff speaking, while critiquing it (ear training).

maybe a series of two recorders, mic then mixer

whether during read-aloud or during off-the-cuff speaking.

Vary pitch/vol/speed/enunciation.

Add — after mastering Standard Voice – then add “vary affection” as opposed to having *NO* affectation but only varying pitch/ speed/ vol/ enunciation.

Kicks – Song Lyrics

At 1:10:50 in
“2021-02-16a Egodeath Mystery Show – Repeat Foo Morning Vocal Warmup.mp3”,
I read-aloud in Standard Voice (neutral) the lyrics to the song Kicks by Paul Revere & the Raiders:

Paul Revere & the Raiders

Girl, you thought you found the answer
On that magic carpet ride last night
But when you wake up in the mornin’
The world still gets you uptight

Well, there’s nothin’ that you ain’t tried
To fill the emptiness inside
But when you come back down, girl
Still ain’t feelin’ right

And don’t it seem like
Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight

No, but not with kicks
You just need help, girl

Well you think you’re gonna find yourself
A little piece of paradise
But it ain’t happened yet
So girl, you better think twice

Don’t you see, no matter what you do
You’ll never run away from you
And if you keep on runnin’
You’ll have to pay the price

And don’t it seem like
Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight

No, you don’t need kicks
To help you face the world each day
That road goes nowhere
I’m gonna help you find yourself another way

Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight

And don’t it seem like
Kicks just keep gettin’ harder to find
And all your kicks ain’t bringin’ you peace of mind
Before you find out it’s too late, girl
You better get straight

Esoteric Agenda

Possible Topics in this Episode
  • done: play “last night’s” recording/show to hear “flowery” personality/voice.
  • partly done: secret c0nsp!r@cy exoteric/ esoteric (= /”gnostics”/”gnosticism” – as the demonized “other” of exotericists) standoff. ie
    • esotericists are the demonized “other” of the exotericists. including eg no-free-will, plants, ahistoricity.
    • covered: what does Jesus from Outer Space Richard Carrier say about why ahistoricity was not widely explicitly discussed?
    • Hane is asking academics to cover entheogens, but the subject is (for some of them) taboo. Is that taboo to be considered as “censorship”? “secrecy”? “suppression”? “conspir”? we need a more neutral analytical framwework eg re: some existing academics balking at no-free-will , ahistoricity, plants.

Standard Voice

Standard Reference Speaking and Tone

  • exaggerate the bass, treble, and pitch swing
  • Practice standard reference vocalizing
  • speak low pitch with a neutral-positive tone
  • speak low pitch with a smile
  • No particular character or inflection of feeling
  • No odd resonance
  • No character or attitude skew
  • Generic Reference speech, standard voice
  • Straight-up standard pronunciation
  • Neutral medium pace as midpoint
  • Not lax, not edgy (neutral non-emphasis)
  • Neither soft tone, nor aggressive
  • Neutral in tone
  • Functional and plain
  • Regular matter-of-fact speech
  • No attitude or tone skew

    • cultivated voice vs wild uncultivated voice
    • “previous voice” “former voice” = analogy: standing outside ego. talking about my “former”; challenge of avoiding reincarnation into possibilism-thinking.
      • Talk in terms of “my former voice”. puts a transcending distance between my new vs old consciousness/personality/voice.
        • [6:50 p.m. February 15, 2021] – Ruck’s focus-idea of {wild vs. cultivated} = egoic vs transcendent ; egoic thinking vs transcendent thinking.
          • egoic ~= my default uncultivated voice ~= Ruck’s “wild”.
          • transcendent ~= my “standard voice” I worked to develop & engage ~= Ruck’s “the cultivated”.
          • todo: check Ruck’s writings about wild vs. cultivated, isn’t it equiv/isolmorphic w/ child/animal vs. adult/human?
          • wild vs cultivated

5. Precursor to Ironic Distancing + Double-Reading Technique, in the Episode of the Egodeath Mystery Show, “At War with the Mystics” (Feb. 7) – Play Clips

[timestamp started: ~1:51:29] fade music

  • Play 1:45:00 in “/Users/michaelhoffman/Music/TK/Egodeath Mystery Show/2021-02-07b Egodeath Mystery Show – At War with the Mystics”
    That’s the start of Hane EE article “traditional methods of the mystics may…”
    • 1:49:36 “Dare to take… (not at all comparable to the eucharist)” (sarcasm editorializing) – but play before/after that point. as well as clipping this.
    • Play Feb7 final 45 minutes, listen for double-reading/ reading-aloud for meaning-emphasis. Sarcastic demo; demonstrate during this show, the type of reading I was doing feb7 pm.
    • 2:02:20 in that aup. clipped for present show.
    • Turned his article into an ironically distanced art-piece. The echo and background music and the requirement to speak quietly, added up to a “bracketed-off context” as opposed to a “take the author seriously” tone — plus Hane’s own tone is ironic/disbelieving/ scare-quotes. This “scare-quote” reading was the *mindset* of repeating twice; thus was invented double-reading.

Leveraging the Separation of Concerns: Record Purely a Reading of an Article, then Play that Recording on my Show, Pausing to Add Commentary as if a Separate “Track” – Need to “DJ” my own *clips* that are *separately* recorded.

the playback of the reading to add my peanut gallery commentary/ explnations/ critrqieu/ objections

My attempts to do a single perfect live take of 2 hours of variety show, ends up squandering massive amounts of storage space and thus drowning my good clips (signal) among mountains of noise.

It is *easy* to do a “killer take” of an Intro segment, when I’m not also, simultaneously, trying to talk to create a 2-hour show.

  1. Generate & gather 2 hours of clips, none of which reference the show. No timestamp statements in these recordings.
  2. Hit Record, do a DJ continuous take, 2 hours, with timestamps, where I play back the clips that I have gathered into the audio project file for the episode.

Mic Demo & Vocalization Victory Lap (I Hope)

  • https://we.tl/t-BfQubKBBq9 320kbps mp3. Preview (Magnifying Glass icon) for in-browser listening is only available for .mp3 files, not for .wav files (below).
    (no real Egodeath content (Brinckmann random demo read-aloud’s))
  • The full-fidelity .wav version is only 2x the filesize! so .wav dl is: https://we.tl/t-Tq3jfnbtR4
  • Microphone demo Shure SM57 with & without Limiter, several distances / angles.
  • Cardioid mic (therefore has bass proximity effect)
  • Vocal lessons learned about my two “impediments” I corrected.
  • No pop filter (yay!) – 60 degrees off-axis, plus Limiter, obviates evil pop filter.
  • Handling-noise demo with and without Limiter engaged.

    • Segment 1: New breakthrough Communication technique-invention today: Reading each sentence twice, to read-aloud an article.
      • 46:22 I play the exact spot in the read-aloud recording, where I discovered/invented the double-reading technique.
      • 1:38:06 Feb 11 Take 1 of 1995 reading, with bright mic (TASCAM DR-05 omnidir) & voice in bad state.
      • 1:40:34 Feb 12 Take 2 of 1995 reading, with dark mic (Shure SM57 cardioid) & voice in good state.
        • Errata 1:41:03 I said “that’s today’s bright mic that I’m using now” – I meant, dark mic.
    • Segment 2 & end: The point of Hanegraaff’s 1995 article advocating Empirical method against the Religionist method.
      • 2:17:40 At final segment near end of mp3, I say Hanegraaff must combine:
        • empiricism
        • religionism
        • the egodeath theory; “analogical psychedelic eternalism dependent-control”.
          • correct, productive historical research must specifically trace the history and differences of “analogical psychedelic eternalism dependent-control” (synchronic & diachronic).
          • The right/correct brand of religionism for empiricism (as a method of academic historiography of esotericism) to track & integrate is analogical psychedelic eternalism cybernetics.
          • In religionism, the Signal is analogical psychedelic eternalism; the Noise is everything else. Good, relevant, substantive empirical historiography is that which tracks Signal (analogical psychedelic eternalism), not Noise (everything else).
    • Segment 3: Spectrum of various formats combining, of the Egodeath Mystery Show as a broad umbrella, from individual voice recordings, to multimedia extravaganza.
      • A sliding scale of structure is available.
      • The only rule is, Standard Reference vocalizing.
      • 1:17:39 drums w/ delay
    • Segment 4: Vocalizing-work paid off, and combines with this great double-reading technique.
      • Pronounced a curse on the web page that strawmans broadcasters. In fact, broadcasters work hard to speak correctly and clearly and naturally.

Content

Double-Reading
  • My new, Double-Reading technique
  • special Board of Celebration edition- hit it out of the park w/ vocalizing & diamond-run 10/10 difficulty article.
  • remember my prophecy i made: “the universal solution to all vocalization problems is “repeat statement””.
  • double – my listening repeatedly to cds of Teaching Co
  • double reading: Cybernetics = communication
Hanegraaff 1995 Article
  • explain the point of the article, 3 positions.
  • Explaining Hanegraaff’s article about empiricism vs. (the false-dichotomy debate between religionism vs reductionism)
  • conversation w hanegraaff, the email i sent him
  • explain Hanegraaff’s 1995 article
    • mysticism/theosophy, gnosticism, esotericism
    • religionism, reductionism, empiricism
  • read aloud Hane 2012 article , double-reading –
    • todo: decide reading approach eg read each sentence twice, then at end of paragraph, paraphrase the paragraph by doing a loose read-aloud of paragraph ie skip fluff words and replace some words by simpler words.
      • decide if will do comentary/ explanation & criqique, of entire article & on a per paragraph. scale/scope of summary/critiqieu:
        • book or article entire
        • chapter or section
        • paragraph
  • read aloud M Hoffman article, double-reading
  • first take, last night – uploaded: some good commentary.
New Formats of the Egodeath Mystery Show
  • Format of the show – like Carl “Professor Secret” Ruck, the format of this show will be present but absent
  • need to extract clips – worry about that later.
  • show format: pros/cons of clipping/breaking-up an episode/take/recording session.
  • whether to use audio editor & how much.
  • new format for the show: each episode will use a completely different, unitque format
    • why? it’s a mystery
    • looking for the late night point in time where I received the word ‘mystery’
    • the Egodeath Mystery Show is an umbrella for all kinds of my recordings, download files.
    • insanity tunnel: i play shows within shows, the resampling workflow:
    • during the show, i play a section of a previous show,
      • in which i play a section of a previous show,
        • in which i play a section of a previous show,
          • in which i play a section of a previous show,
            • in which i play a section of a previous show,
              • in which i play a section of a previous show, 😱🤯😵
Vocalizing, Voiceover, & Microphones
  • hammer pitch down down down — result: it sounds full and normal, not bassy. only sounds resonant, not “bass pitch”.
  • Voiceover / vocalization breakthrough/remedial recovery.
  • voice before & after demo
  • done: 2 mics – play samples
  • vocal: beware of overconfidence & poor speaking
  • vocal: how bright mic caused slurring
  • voice professor : open up back/top of throat
  • vocal: play nightmarish reject 57->dr05 night takes? from when i switched to 57.
  • vocal: hate for web page against broadcasters – logical fallacies

      • religionist
      • reductionist
      • empiricist <- he advocates, against the other two approaches.
  • Communication breakthrough: at 46:12, I discover/create the technique of deliberately, strategically reading each sentence twice.
    • Standard practice for voiceover.
    • Increases my comprehension & vocalization.
    • Produces far higher comprehension for the listener.

based on my “failed” late-night reading of Hanegraaff’s ch19 Entheogenic Esotericism (music/fx too loud), then, I re-read for effect & clarity, selected phrases. Now, while reading-aloud (a 2nd time) the much harder 1995 Hanegraaff article “Empirical method in the study of esotericism”, I full-on discovered, a few minutes ago, around 9:30 am feb 12 2021, a new way of communication — read every sentence twice.

I just discovered a breakthrough new way of communication: reading-aloud every sentence twice. This really provides a great value-add opportunity for me; for the Egodeath Mystery Show.

Today’s vocalization & comprehensibility is *great*; solidly professional (don’t let down my mindfulness-guard though! always keep pushing for correct std ref’c speaking!)

Black Diamond Run Confirmed

Their knowledge level, on a scale of 0-10: -1
Their pomposity level: 11

Finished reading-aloud the article and recording, 26 pages.
My resulting I.Q. decrease: 20 points

😵

Vocalization

Voiceover takes approach: deliver a recording to piece together a good reading & shorten gaps.

Emphasis here is on trying to open bottom chest and lift and open upper throat; more resonant cav (actively open /lift the top back of throat), less “tight throat” odd, bad tonality.

Take control of the full vocal aparatus, engage, exercise it, contrast bad operation/muscle patterns.

Judge, assess, identify problem spots, analyze, remedy.

Do not ever again think “I can quit trying, I can tune out and forget about trying to improve and judge my speech firmly.

Shocking how poor, sloppy, inattention, out of touch w/ own totally hit or miss voice.

was worse than embarrassed, upon listening critically, about a week ago wtf i thought and announced that my gear was broken.

omg i was delusional and out of touch w/ my own vocal sound.

resting on laurels.

i carefully measured my ego and determined that it was much too large in size.

i thought i was quite good, and in fact I was quite bad.

“My recorder is surely broken.”

Esoteric Agenda

  • todo:
  • listen to the recordding and decide whether to clean it up (removing bad takes, separating segments / clips.
    • Evaluate my vocalization.
    • Study the article by listening to this reading-aloud of it.
    • Decide whether to clean up the reading, or re-vocalize better this time and then do a fresh cleaner recording.
    • The relevance of this article and its value are in doubt; understanding this article amounts to following propellerhead debates per this 1995 article about 3 positions:
      • reductionists
      • religionists <– this article says religionists are evil. Analyze.
      • empiricists (Hanegraaff advocates this position)
      • todo: listen and identify the point of each section.
  • Policies for reading this particular article:
    • don’t read footnotes,
    • don’t comment (not even after paragraph),
    • don’t read list of citations;
    • don’t read References section.
  • add to vocal warmup at the Egodeath Mystery Show page: Anatomy section:
    • add notes about inhaling
    • open lower chest
    • open & lift top of throat and back of mouth
    • open front of mouth, tip of tongue
  • 5 levels of esotericism
    • the egodeath theory
    • irvin
    • hanegraaff
    • Western Esotericism scholar unaware of entheogens & the egodeath theory (analogical psychedelic eternalism dependent-control)

Method & Theory in the Study of Religion

Journal of the North American Association for the Study of Religion

Method & Theory in the Study of Religion publishes articles, notes, book reviews and letters which explicitly address the problems of methodology and theory in the academic study of religion.

This includes such traditional points of departure as history, philosophy, anthropology, psychology, and sociology, but also the natural sciences, and such other approaches as feminist theory, discourse analysis, and ideology critique. 

Method & Theory in the Study of Religion also concentrates on
the critical analysis of the history of the study of religion itself.

How to Develop Your Voice for TV or Radio <– i hated this page the first time, and I hate it now. fake amateur career site, “let’s write an article about everything EXCEPT proper normal standard reference vocalizing, and say nothing but disparagement & demonizing about correct standard vocalizing.” COMPLETELY USELESS PAGE, NOTHING BUT PERIPHERAL “LOOK HOW SAVVY I AM” — OOPS, FORGOT THE BASIC SUBSTANCE!!

Extracting Clips from the Four Feb 10 Episodes

this section was written Feb 26 or 27, within idea development page 12, when I created clips:

It’s been a huge project, trying to extract all my Egodeath clips from the four Feb 10 episodes.

It took time to add timestamps — and develop a better approach to do that. I scoped-out the potential clips from episodes 2021-02-10a through 2021-02-10d.

It’s taken a long time to clean up the projects and start noting timestamps in a clean, standard way. I’m only half done (finished A & B, need to do C & D). A 2-day project! done: I’m not even done w/ B — I need to make sure my commentary is timestamped separately from reading Hane’s words.

done: From B, I’m going to omit my readings of Hane’s EE article, and only keep my commentary – I’m sick of some passages of the article.

“2021-02-10c Clips v2 – Egodeath Mystery Show – Dancing Stability.mp3″ – new, Feb. 27, 2021 (replaces Feb. 26 v1)

I cleaned-up this Clips episode, then subsequently made an Effects version of this cleaned-up episode (see above section).

I made a Clips (or Core) shortened version, of Feb 10 3rd episode (02-10c). Forthe Clips version of the ep, I used the dry direct mic recording (no music). Has the intro & outro. I omitted the 8b clips segment, since that’s available separately and I want to give full attention to the new content. At the start, I retained the list of types of readings & recordings that I can incorp into any episode, but I omitted the recorded, 8c cleaned-up clip.

v2 (Feb 27):
  • increased the gaps to allow read-aloud & inhaling.
  • various fixes.
  • removed fluff words.
  • cleaned up (nice & clean now for re-use such as remixing).
  • added one statement at the end.
  • reorged the end sentences a little.

“2021-02-10c Egodeath Mystery Show – Dancing Stability.mp3” – reissue of the entire episode

Feb 26 resissue of entire episode, with _ filelanme.

This is a pretty solid episode, but it was still good to make a “Core” version of this episode. It’s a Core version of an episode that contains clips from another episode.

The Core version is labelled as a “Clips” episode, but it is packaged as a real episode – a shortened version of an episode – not just as standalone clips out-of-context. The episode does include an actual Clip, that is, from another episode – confusing the distinction. It’s a “Core, with Clips from elsewhere” episode.

Most of the episode is on-topic Egodeath theory-development content.

    • why did it wait until 2020 for a spot-the-mushroom scholar to inventory Psalter 70 trees & decode (or *mention*) the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image.

    • etc.
    • TWO SIDES OF SAME COIN: EGOIC POV = “LOSS OF CONTROL THREAT”; TRANSCENDENT POV = *STABILITY* BUT, TRANSPERSONAL MODE OF STABILITY.
      • 1. EGOIC LOSS OF CONTROL
      • 2. CONTROL TRANSFORMATION PROCESS/ RE-STABILIZATION OF CONTROL
      • 3. END-STATE = TRANSCENDENT *HAVING* OF CONTROL, AGAIN, BUT IN TRANSPERSONAL 2-LEVEL CONSCIOUS CONFIGURATION. = “balance” mytheme & column base stability foundation = the new configuration of HAVING STABLE CONTROL. DONTSAY “THE MYSTIC STA IMAS IMAS THE MYSTIC ALTERED STATE = sufring the loos of control”. instead, say the mystic altered state = having the transpersonal stable control, depicted by the art mytheeme of “balance” and “stability” eg amanita w/ round stembottom & pink in the the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image, and the coloumn base in the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image. “higher-mode control is stable” – *not* “loss of control”, that’s egoic thinking/talking. 2 sides of coin = egoic says “loss of control”; transcendent transcendent thinking says “presence of transpersonal control”

Content
  • A full good reading of transcription of entire Transcendent Knowledge Podcast, episode 27 – the Mystic episode.
  • Vocalization exercises. That paid off – I did a good reading, afterwards (maybe there is hope – but don’t be overconfident!)

I did use my “Show” format, but here, I plan to eliminate all possible overhead. I will provide the download link here, the file name could be as shown.

The Full Experience – Battery-powered recorder + mic stand clip, 2 approaches to holding

  • handheld
  • mic stand <- no cable needed; offers a standalone wireless desk mic stand.

When I started the 2021 voice recordings, all of the recordings were made with battery-powered field recorder, sometimes mounted on med-small desk mic boom stand w/ clip, no pop filter. Have to say, it was pretty cool and clever to simply clip-mount the recorder and use batteries, is the most fun – it’s fully mobile; can:

  1. walk around holding recorder as close-mic and backing it away between speaking at the mic (move arm)
  2. press Pause
  3. put recorder in desk mic stand clip
  4. press Rec
  5. now sitting at a battery-powered recorder – move away from mic between speaking at the mic (move torso)

if you are willing to lose a little high-end by mic placement of 45 degrees off axis, no pop filter is necessary. No cable is necessary. Can place stand anywhere, no cable. or hold and walk around.

Highly Selective Logging of Timestamps when Recording My Speaking

Often, when recording my talking, I deliver a 10/10 10-minute segment, then I go… uh, what do I do now?

In that case, I can write down the timestamp (and optionally, the filename), so I can spot-target *that* clip. *NOT* a massive project of inventorying everything, nor of constantly writing down every minute of timestamp.

That highly selective approach is similar to when I decode a mytheme, I use [acro]/keyboard shortcuts to mark the time or date:
[February 9, 2021]
[ p.m. February 9, 2021]

Pure Voice Recordings vs. Egodeath Mystery Show

Differentiating (and recording/capturing) Pure Voice Recordings/Clips vs. Remix DJ multimedia “the Egodeath Mystery Show” which Remixes the Pure Voice Recordings (while also capturing the dry mic during the show, to later extract the best 5% from, as pure voice clips, to share and to reuse) <– skyrocketing the quality/density of value

my totally live shows (w/o playing-back my voice recordings) are a disservice to my followers: the content & quality is too thin, too hit-or-miss.

I can hugely increase the density of substance, by playing back the best *clips* of my occasional, best voice commentary. 

I did some great new speaking (with substance) while DJ’ing last night in the Egodeath Mystery Show, but, that was only like 5% of the time. 

SO: i can *clip* my best 5% from my dry mic recording (yay!) and then play back those clips in a “live show” subsequently. 

This is why it is such a *great* idea to record the mic directly, as well as recording the fully mixed show. 

I ran two recorders at same time – good call; I have a perfect mic-capture w/ no eq/fx/mixing, to extract my 5% best clips from, that I spoke last night — it’s always the unplanned, spontaneous discussions I do, that are the good ones!

My current thinking: *forget* logging the timestamps when making the content. Purely focus on good vocal delivery/ideas, during the show.

EXTRACTING TIMESTAMPS IS USUALLY HAS TO BE DONE AS A SECOND, LISTENING PASS.

The best way to think about it – 2 phased approach:

Phase 1: make the best pure voice recordings i can (for example, extract my best voice-clips)

Phase 2: the Egodeath Mystery Show: do a *little* live DJ mic work, but *mainly* play-back *recordings* of my best voice work. Then, the branding/concept of “the Egodeath Mystery Show” would refer *not* to my pure voice recordings, but rather, would refer to my *playback* of those voice recordings. Thus:

  • purely Voice Recordings (no eq/fx/mixing)
  • the Egodeath Mystery Show – I apply eq/fx/mixing-music, while playing-back my collection of pure voice recordings (best clips).

I keep forgetting:

  • DR-05 SOUNDS CLEAR B/C OMNI POLAR PATTERN SO NO PROXIMITY EFFECT.
  • SM57 MIC HAS CARDIOID POLAR PATTERN, SO, HAS PROXIMITY EFFECT – IE, MUDDY BASS.

stop forgetting that!

Back to Basics: Voice Recordings, No Overhead Concepts – Bracket-off All Signal Processing & Packaging & Timestamp Logging & Delivery Considerations

  • 210209_2233.wav = dr-05 no eq
  • 210209_2231.wav = sm57 no eq

“show” (the Egodeath Mystery Show ) connotes taking a collection of direct mic recordings (no eq/fx/musicmix baked-in), then combining many separate clean pure mic voice recordings, w/ eq/fx/music/mixing — DON’T DO ALLTHAT AT ONCE, LIVE. can’t do good job.

“live broadcast” would only work if I play recordings of pure miked-voice ideal recordings. then dj casually over that, but don’t expect to generate good speaking/content in the “do everything at once” mode. extreme overhead/distraction, of the “live broadcast mulltimedia” aaproach.

use time-separation/ phases. can do a far, far better results/approach, by dividing:

  1. phase 1: capture direct mic pure voice recording, vocazn. focus purely on ideas (content) + best-possible vocalization.
  2. phae 2, later: mix various voice recordings (thru eq/fx) mixed with music or other(?) audio – *possilby* adding live dj mic at that time, maybe.

external mic 57 caused me to think of show format with massive overhead. go back to deskmount dr05 field recorder even w/ batteries. nice standalone. no nonsense. no overhead. no log file. NO NOTHIN but voice, mic, recorder. zero overhead.

Use the Minimal Approach: (= nothing to remove):

  • Voice
  • Mic
  • Preamp [don’t use eq/mixer function, if present]
  • Recorder

all other considerations are agnostic, separate, later.

Create non-show, pure voice recordings.

but, using lessons learned, about the need to log timestamp ideally every minute. don’t even think about it. just give me raw mic recgs! w/ good voczn. Focus on voczn & capturing the mic; *none* of the other questions.

debate: record raw mic and share that? options: [doesn’t matter; that’s all a SEPARATE ISSUE; don’t even think about it. just give me raw mic recgs!]

options:

  • mic>recorder>export as mp3 <– some mics will sound like mud / random, but works well for the slightly bright & bass-shy field recorder 🤷‍♂️
  • mic>eq>recorder>export as mp3 <– bad approach; follow pro-audio rule: “never print eq; separate the mic rec’g from the applying of eq”
  • mic>recorder>daw-eq>export as mp3 <– recommended

New Streamlined/Focused Format for the Egodeath Mystery Show – Vision: Received, for the Show’s Nature

Rolling Log Approach, cut at 2 hours, no special start or end, no 2-hour structure

most will be straight voice

in future, will log timestamp like every minute. more is better. the more frequently, the better; every 1 minute would be good.

Generations of 2021 Voice Recordings
  1. Jan 20 – __ – no structure, no concept of “show”
  2. __ – Feb 8 – heavy-weight structure attempt, after thought of “show” – became so heavyweight, it fell over, leaving a streamlined new lightweight approach.
  3. Feb 9+ – no structure, but packaged as loose “show” concept (rolling log <2hr files, ZERO OVERHEAD. livestream w/ logging segments, <2hr.
    Periodic “station identification” – not “start of a show”, not structured as a show.

its purpose was revealed to me [12:36 a.m. February 9, 2021] is a rolling, logged hangout freeform, in 2-hour .mp3 format.

end the audio idea development file – just like creating fresh idea development page. Audio version of creating a new idea dev page.

logging overhead for this wav/mp3, and exporting/sharing it, = toc maint overhead.

Zero Overhead. Log the

  • .wav filename SEPARATE THE CREATION OF WAV, FROM SHARING OF MP3. CREATE ONGOING FREEFORM 2-HOUR REC’S, W/ REQUIREMENT OF MAINTAINING A LOG ROLLING FORMAT. GET RID OF CONCEPT OF “STRUCTURE FOR START VS END OF SHOW”.
  • date
  • time. and which mp3 # of the day.

Minimal Overhead to Produce a Rolling Log of Segments, No Start or Stop, cut <2hr at nearest segment end; still structureed… no strong segment concept, but *log meeting notes* ongonig. don’t even need to invent fancy names. ELIM SPECIAL FILENAMES. WHAT WE NEED IS JUST <2HR MP3 FILES, WITH GOOD LOGGING MAINTAINED LIKE MEETING NOTES DURING ANY … A LOG APPROACH. JUST INCIDATE: TIMESTAMP, IN FILE. FILENAME + TIMESTAMP; BREAK THIS PAGE PER FILE.

New template:

– Rolling Log, No Start or Stop. Sucky Dud Segments Alternating with Top-Tier Segments, all logged, sliced at segment closest to 2hr.

Lessons Learned from this Productive Experiment

  • be extremely against any overhead. eg STATING THE INTRO OF THE SHOW AT START, IS *OVERHEAD*!!! IT IS PROHIBITIVE! RETURN TO NEUTRAL GENERIC “VOICE RECORDING”.
    • pure mic/voice recordings w/ timestamp logs are good.
    • “show” is dangerous concept, it can backfire into counterproductive overhead!!!
  • heavy structure overhead doesn’t work. abandon “show” format in that sense.
  • eliminate all structure – but, *log* every minute (w/ .wav filename, then after, .mp3 filename).
  • do “station identification”, not “start of show” or “end of show” announcement.
  • it’s more like an ongoing radio station/ livestream, than a bounded-duration “show”.
  • later can chop “clip-out” 5-minute segments… somehow, track the timestamps/filenames(both .wav/.mp3) to manage this. then can re-use those “best clips” (use .wav master of dry mic rec’g when possible).
  • must be able to instantly terminate (at a given topic-transition < 2 hours). Any time there’s a topic-switch, can razor-blade cut the tape there, now & later.
  • on “ongoing, open” show format.
  • The Egodeath Mystery Show is a Perpetual Meeting of the Mystic Board of Directors (the Board of Mystics directors), directing the inrushing torrent of inspiration at the current problems posted on the board by Martin Luther’s massive railroad spike that shattered the church door and demolished the entire entryway of the exoteric church.
  • supporting any length 5minutes to 2 hours is a requirement.
  • make it more like a perpetual rolling meeting with no start or stop
  • need *way* more timestamps, once per minute would be ideal.
  • must be *extreme lightweight* format overall. must be *able* to mix-in music, but it’s basically AN ONGOING NONSTOP PERPETUAL MEETING, DELIVERED AS ANYWHERE FROM 5MINUTE TO 2HOUR MP3S, THE KEY IS FILENAME+TIMESTAMP(PER-MINUTE).
  • REPLACE “RADIO SHOW SEGMENT” IDEA BY MEETING NOTES W/ TIMESTAMPS. PERPETUAL ROLLING MEETING W/ TIMESTAMPS LOG.
  • MORE SOLO VOICE, LESS MUSIC.

🧪 ⚗️

This is a transitional experimental … thing. Many lessons learned.

The Egodeath substantive content is spread out – use the timestamps.

Special handling for this final episode of the Egodeath Mystery Show that starts with complex structure at start:

  • done:
  • load the wav
  • save project
  • move > 2hr to be sep track
  • solo the 2hr 1st part
  • export the first 2 hrs as mp3 08b
  • copy to player
  • upload
  • paste link above.
  • normalize the >2 remainder-track
  • export >2hr as mp3 08c
  • copy to player
  • upload
  • paste link above.

This is a THINK TANK WORKING SHOW, which produces gems in the outline below, and many other outputs:

  • working session on website
  • check emails
  • incidentally: produce an mp3 for mystic couch potatoes
Todo: Listen to the entire 3-hour show from start to finish, logging the timestamp & topic every minute; like running meeting notes (write-up from scratch in a fresh new Minutes Log format)

in future shows/meetings: log the time & topic as often as every minute, during the meeting/show, in future; “mystery meeting minutes log”

12:00 start, 34:00: Define a vocalization style that’s deep, full, resonant, and *fast* for doing intensive work sessions. Use that for off-the-cuff, too – mono-speed fallacy:

  • 35:00 start:
    [Diversion segment 1: Start time: __, End time: __ Canterbury Psycalter as receiving a communication transmission. difficulty in interpreting red initiate pulled by angle’s feet on column base.]
    [Diversion segment 2: Start time: __, End time: 1:04:00 finished diverseion segment: Forgot Plots.]

Multimedia ideas for voice ie reading-aloud or speaking off-the-cuff, mixed with music – a hookup and gear usage framework putting to use all “mystic speaking” ALWAYS CAPTURE THE DRY MIC (COMBINED W/ WORK HARD TO PRODUCE A CLEAN VOCAL PERFORMANCE). always capture the dry mic. then re-play/ re-process/ re-mix the playback of that recording later.
    • In support of the awesome ideal Reamp approach of capturing the cleanest [mystic-]vocalization possible [various read-aloud styles/conventions supported]:
      • Mimic my horrific speaking tonality, learn it consciously, in order to avoid / not do that.hoarse; not resonant diaphragm usage
      • Practice my bad vocalizing. I could gather samples of horrendous slurring, lisping, odd bad sounding traits. I’m noticing/spotting *many* — it’s all too easy. “loshes all my balanch levelsh”
    • lisping/slurring
    • back of mouth nasally

Content
  • A much superior Mic recording deck & eq/fx hooked up. 🎉 thx to levels-monitoring failure in last night’s end of show.
  • Unplanned coverage emphasis: Grid Game & Forgot-Plots; developed theory. Developed the grid concept (as stated 1:28:00):
    • “I deviated from the plan for this episode, but I have been highly productive, and am (fortunately) highly aware of segment-tracking.”
    • Then the recording halted/choked at 1:30:00. Had to re-start a new recording file. That didn’t help me get on-track for this 2-hour, planned episode …. I failed, ran out of time, and had to punt *all* the planned topics to the next episode! 😭 To avoid any more 5-hour episodes.
  1. [1:30] Finished the Intro segment.
  2. ~14:00 Grad Student work crew working on the Grid Game / Forgot Plot analysis tools. Entheogen scholarship. Grid Game construction team.
    1. [22:00] Finished the Intro segment.
  3. [22:00] Began Vocal Warmup segment.
    1. This room reverb reminds me of… never mind, private autobiography.
    2. Failure of mixing voice and music at correct ratio.
    1. [34:00-37:00] reading: Rolfe 1925 Amanita. Aiming for semi-hyper-enunciation.
    2. [36:00] mentioned grid game forgot plot
    3. 38:30 mocking the “needed” word ‘entheogen’. I want to discuss more, I found a great writeup, highly insightful sarcastic deconstruction of the word ‘entheogen’ – oh, it’s mine.
      1. 40:00 My forgetting and my alienation from my own past writings.
      2. I recognized my set of concepts I created, even though the columnist plagiarized my work and used somewhat different words.
    4. [43:00] almost finished warmup but, during Warmup, did a diversion segment about difficulty of continuing that practiced enunciation into the show.
    5. I am devoted to this take even though it’s gone ADHD. “I swear we’ll get to substance in this episode!”
    6. 44:00 two “guard gates”: at source of thoughts before vocalizing, and one after vocalizing (which caught the word ‘um’).
    7. 45:00 Yeti mic has a mute knob.
    8. Added note “the whole point of vocal warmup is continue that way”.
    9. 46:00 restarted vocal warmup segment.
    10. 47:00 finished vocal warmup segment.
    11. 48:00 Why, in each episode, I talk about the show format first, then talk about substance at end of show.
    12. 49:00 Vision for the Egodeath Mystery Show – this show is to engineer and construct receiving a vision — today, to receive a vision for the nature of this show.
    13. 51:00 The {balance} mytheme is of top importance, but so is receiving a vision for this show as a venue for discovering & developing ideas such as {balance} mytheme.
  4. (lead-in to Grid Game) Saying a metaphorical truth. an approximate and 1st-order way of speaking ie “All entheogen scholars agree that visionary plants are in archaic not modern era.” <– true as a broad-brush, 1st-order statement – not as a 2nd-order statement/assertion.
    1. 55:00 Review summary/overview of the Grid Game.
      Construction crew is building analysis tools.
    2. 57:00 defining “1st-order model vs. 2nd-order model” – transistor amplification curve.
      1. 1:00:00 1st-order model of transistor: Output = Input * 10. Linear. Simplified.
      2. A good glossary definition should first have a 1st-order sentence (clear, not precise), then a precise, 2nd-order sentence/definition (not so clear, but it is precise).
      3. 1:02:00 random inspiration spontaneous segments above. private vs publicly declared statements, to fill-in the grid. Allegro implies, but doesn’t state, that Greeks (surrounding the Christians) lacked plants; he implicitly asserts the absence of plants in Greek religion around 1st C. Further discussions along analysis along these lines are needed, for example, [listed in recording].
      4. we’re in the middle of a spontaneous segment about grid game & forgot-plot.
      5. took notes (below) about grid game discussion. “THIS SHOW IS A SERIES OF WORK SESSIONS”. “I COULD USE MUSIC HERE WHILE I TYPE”.
    3. [1:06:00] Finished segment about Grid Game. Good progress in adding details:
    1. A pair of grids:
      1. left grid: time is left to right. each row is a religion. the grid represents a single region eg Mediterranean.
      2. right grid: time is left to right. each row is a region. the grid represents a single religion eg Christianity.
    1. spontaneous topic
    1. The idea of “forgot plots”:
      1. Must differentiate between private vs. published statements by a given author.
      2. If author lies (misrepresents his beliefs), that means: he explicitly makes published statements that contradict his private belief about that grid cell.
    1. A writer’s explicit statements vs. implicit implications of how grid is filled in.
    2. etc. WHAT DOES A GIVEN FILLING-IN (+ OR -) OF THE GRID REPRESENT – INDIV WRITER, PUBLIC, PRIVATE, COLLECTIVE ALL WRITERS AVERAGED??
  5. ~1:13:00 Ended segment about 1st-order models vs. 2nd-order models
    1. spontaneous topic; not planned for this episode.
    1. ; or, max’ly simplified model vs. / and (integrated with but differentiated from) a 2nd- order model.
    1. spontaneous topic as i had finished the warmup segment and was explaining I would first discuss tech topics and only then cover the planned TOPIC-OF-SUBSTANCE, the “breakthrough” of the past day, THE {BALANCE} MYTHEME
    1. interwoven w/ topic “grid game”
  6. 1:14:00 purpose of this episode: engineer the receiving of a vision for this show.
    1. bad level mixing of last night’s part 2 of that show, poor monitoring, good ultra-quiet vocalizing, good mode of “mystic reading” developed but the recording is unintelligible b/c levels bad.
  7. 1:18:00 Hanegraaff’s article Entheogenic Esotericism says “Writers don’t believe what they write; hiding their post-1967 entheogen use, lying that that they use non-plant-based meditation.” I vocalized that article (first part) last night, but FAILED TO RECORD THE MIC directly, which I’ll do from now on.
    1. They made Hanegraaff in 1996 look like a gullible fool.
    2. Similarly, we’ll hit the same issue when filling-in the grid in the grid game.
    3. What New Age writers write, vs. what they do & believe. Two different things.
    4. 1:21:00 What entheogen scholars write, vs. what they believe. Two different things.
    5. 1:22:00 Religions come from plants, so, obviously we should fill-in the whole grid and then just argue about the exact level; how much were plants present in each cell of this grid.
    6. Metaphor “down through history”, vs. “left to right through history”. Grid uses left to right; converts to “forgot-plot” from upper left to lower right corner
    7. 1:27:00 Pick 2 out of 3 for a given grid drawn:
      1. Left Grid: time (eras), multiple religions, single region.
      2. Right Grid: time (eras), single religion, multiple regions.
  8. The show equipment went down at 1:30:00 b/c the Mixer Deck ran out of space.
  9. Discussed where to put the show template for each episode, vs. the download-data/ info section for each episode. (“the Egodeath Mystery Show” page vs. “Idea development page”)
    1. 1:36:00 The rest of the episode (I think) is these MECHANICS OF THE SHOW info; talking+typing-fest.
    2. 1:48:00 doing vocal warmup then when done, forget about it; “ok, done, lets have a shlur-fest”.
  10. 2:31:00 finished segment discussing how to finish current episode & start next episode by using the Show Episode Template.
    TIME RAN OUT, 2:36:00; moved the below items (the ones I planned, the whole damn reason for this episode!😭) to the next, planned show’s outline:
  11. the Reamp approach/concept to miking the voice then later re-processing that dry recording,
    1. This Reamp approach is the motivation of this episode: the show-format VISION-RECEPTION PROJECT: both gear-usage (recording-usage [eg making & using dry mic rec’gs during the show]) opportunities AND, distinctly, the function/purpose of this show, as a vehicle to receive visions [eg the top-tier realization during and surrounding the past couple shows re: {balance} metheme & the equivalt themes] and Transcendent Knowledge development. This ep is a project to receive/artitculate/ develop a vision for the format & purpose/function of this show.
    2. Extending the application / concept of “idea development pages” to integrate recorded/audio idea development eg the Egodeath Mystery Show – eg my talking + recording + writing at same time = DEVLEOP & RECEIVE VISISIONS/ MAKE CONNECTIONS. THE “SECRETARY” ROLE AS PART OF THE COMMUNICATIONS/CYBERNETICS USED FOR HIGH IDEA DEVMT. or somethin like that
      1. idea development – this show is where Transcendent Knowledge development occurs.
      2. Multimedia ideas – a hookup and gear usage framework putting to use all “mystic speaking” ALWAYS CAPTURE THE DRY MIC (COMBINED W/ WORK HARD TO PRODUCE A CLEAN VOCAL PERFORMANCE). always capture the dry mic. then re-play/ re-process/ re-mix the playback of that recording later.
    1. In support of the awesome ideal Reamp approach of capturing the cleanest [mystic-]vocalization possible [various read-aloud styles/conventions supported], Mimic my horrific speaking tonality, learn it consciously, in order to avoid / not do that.
      1. hoarse; not resonant diaphragm usage
      2. lisping/slurring
      3. back of mouth nasally
      4. leverage voice actor concept
        1. my awful voice – learn how to consciously deliberately mimic this – in order to not do this.
        2. ideal broadcaster/voiceover straight.
        3. hyper-enunciation comparable to mid-Atlantic accent; video: “Why do early 20th C actors talk that funny affected distinctive non-normal way? The “actor accent” from early mid 20th C.
  12. Increasing my focus on stating segments & logging segment topics and timestamps – step it up all the way.
    1. (pre-segment) what I’m going to talk about in this next segment.
      1. timestamp & filename in mic tape deck
      2. timestamp & filename in final tape deck

Recording the Mic Directly, Plus Results, Will Enable Everything Awesome & Inspiring

new approach to miking: 2 tape decks recording:

  • record the mic directly
  • record the mix of mic + music
  • play back the direct mic recording, thru eq/fx / mix w/ music
  • this is the reamp approach

HUGE IDEA 1: when speaking/mic/recording the mic, just put all focus on clear speaking, clean miking – not eq, at all. don’t eq at all, in the raw rec’g. THE REAMP APPROACH.

HUGE IDEA 2: log, log log – both dry voice recgs & processed.

  • add a log entry before talking about x or doing a reading of x
  • add a log entry in middle, if forgot
  • add a log entry afterwards, like when siad “I like how i said, that gold, thats a clip”
  • log the .wav and the .mp3 timestamp and filename

Touching Sword of God = Touching Snake of Demeter = Jesus (w/ lifted garment) dancing w/ woman = “surfing control-loss” = {balance}

  • touching the sword (in the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image ) = touching w/ right hand Demeter’s snake [8:14 a.m. Febuary 8, 2021] 8:17 am. the bigger … snowballing effect of more and more connections jackpot. re: NATURE OF BREAKTHROUGHS. and, i had that idea as part of the jackpot cluster immediately in the hour after the Nov 2013 breakthrough – the bridal chamber, knowing that one can enter that intercourse door room and experience the transpersonal control-awareness/ control seizure loss borderline situation. = pass through the dragon-guarded gate, to dance/ surf/ touch the sword on the other side, the sword-touching gate
    • demonstrate the Reamp approach: play on the show, the dry mic recording of talking-through the above, w/ no eq/fx/music, then with eq/fx/music mixed in. no goddam lisping/slurring! do a *clean* offf-the-cuff vocaliizing, cpature that – but don’t capture any eq/fx. double-entry recording: live, mix my realtime micing w/ fx/music, BUT, capture dry direct mic. then on dshow, play the dry rec’g again, now w/ diff eq/fx/ music. read-aloud ep 26, rec’d dry mic. play that dry mic rec’g back, twice, mixed w/ diff music/fx.
    • new policy for the Egodeath Mystery Show – pause/halt/interrupt the background music is allowed. continuous 40-minute studio album in the background is *not* the experience target.
    • answer to the question “whats the point of reading-aloud an article? why not just have ppl read the article?” capture my reading of it, stylized voicing of it, then process/mix that dry stylized reading-aloud/ “mystic-vocalizing the article”, then don’t put that on the show, so much as, put on the show, the eq/fx/music-mixed playback of that dry mystic-vocalization of the text.

Content Summary
  • Only has peripheral Egodeath theory content.
  • Motivations:
    • Practice hyper-enunciating.
    • Practice background music, especially levels (music still too quiet – and, mic too loud, partly due to fx)
    • Hook up eq + fx to mic.
  • Read Cyberdisciple’s recent ~5 weblog postings, slowly, with hyper-pronunciation and FX, with Lips behind it. Allegro, Graves.
  • Read first pages of Hanegraaff’s chapter 19, but not the first paragraph, slowly, with hyper-pronunciation and FX, with I, Robot behind it.
Music for the Show
Errata
  • Music still much too quiet, in first file. Was aiming for -20dB. Aim mic & music at -10dB.
  • Failed to update the outline as I went along.
  • Final 45:00 is mostly unintelligible. FAILED: SHOULD HAVE TURNED DOWN ECHO, SHOULD HAVE TURNED DOWN MUSIC. OVERALL, THIS SHOW PROVED THAT MY SLOPPY MONITORING WHEN COMBINED WITH SIGNAL PROCESSING , DOESN’T WORK.
  • Too bright?

Music for the Show
Content
  1. The length of show episodes.
    1. Limit to 2 hours. To do more, do a separate episode.
    1. Scale/scope this outline at 2 hours.
    2. Scope the music selection at 2 hours.
  2. Logging the outline of topics and timestamps during the show.
    1. During the show, continuously update the outline & note timestamps. Note what I’m starting to cover, time, what i finished covering, time. State aloud, explicitly, the topic as “THE CURRENT … STARTING SEGMENT ON X, AT TIME X. WE’RE IN MIDDL OF SEG X , TIME IS X. WE FINISHED SEG X, AT TIME X.”Log each topic that I bring in. LOG TIMESTAMP!
    2. Add topics to cover.
    1. Maintaining this running outline during the show.
    1. Talk explicitly about what segment we’re starting/ in / finished, & timestamp.
      1. Continuously state “I’ve now started the segment on topic x. The timestamp is x. We’re in middle of segment on topic x, time is x. We finished the segment on x, timestamp is x.” (Assumes policy: don’t re-edit post-show).
    1. To do more, do multiple distinct episodes per day.
  3. Setting the mic eq; that is, Mastering, to make the mic sound good in at least two speakers.
    1. multiple headphones & speakers, eq curve applying to mic by chaining preamps. Listen to the eq’d result in multiple speakers, so that no speaker sucks too bad; finding best compromise.
    1. At least 2 of: avoid the single-speakers fallacy.
    1. Good laptop speakers
    2. JVC bluetooth earbuds
    3. lightning earbuds
    4. Sony 7506 headphones – don’t *optimize* *only* for these headphones; rather, balance the eq to sound least bad among *all* my current set of speakers/headphones, while also playing reference albums through those.
  4. Filesize of this show.
    1. mp3 bitrate 320 kbps; filesize.
  5. Tour of my available audio files.
    ______________________
  6. Review of progress made in Egodeath topics in the previous show:
    1. 2-level vs 3-level models.
    2. Birth of the Egodeath community 2001.
    3. 42:00 (or 42:30) -46:00 The {balance} mytheme
      = control stability; pink initiate = red initiate. blade, control, loss of balance.
    1. 52:00 The 3 falloff curves of visionary plants – 3 entheogen scholars, Min Mod Max, 3 eras of history: Archaic era, Mid-History era, Modern era.
    2. 55:00-1:05:00 My history with the book the Way of Zen by Alan Watts. rejected it then extracted the info from it.
  7. 1:05:00-1:07:56 water break, restructured show template, music interlude
  8. 1:07:56-1:16:29 critiqued the first post by wrmspirit that argued “plants have risk, therefore shouldn’t use”. https://egodeathyahoogroup.wordpress.com/2021/01/09/egodeath-yahoo-group-digest-2/#message99
  9. The problem of too-long episodes. I could patch-in an existing recording to bring the length to 2 hours….
    1. 1:17:47: such as the Eleusis piece… Types of my recordings. Defining a “show” vs. a “voice recording”.
  10. 1:21:03-[1:26:58 in v2 of this episode] Eleusis satire (quiet-voice handheld recorder voice-only piece), with Plastic Cloud album in the background in the present episode.

Production Notes for the 2nd Release of this Episode

I did that (on Feb. 22, 2021) by deleting from “unique strain” where Face Behind the Sun in the background ended, to the 2nd “unique strain”. Boosted the level of that Eleusis passage. Normalized (boosted) entire program.

Re-release “Feb 7 Plastic Cloud” episode of Egodeath Mystery Show.
Here’s the approach I actually used: just delete dup. dlete 12545- “unique strain in fact”

Source file (not used here; I just deleted dup passage between “unique strain”, then re-normalized): “__” = Eleusis satire master tape. green on white SD card Kingston 64 GB “TK Audio”:
“/Volumes/TK Audio/Music/TK/2LevelModel/__.wav”

speech len 5:30

-4:48

/2 = 21 s of song, then speech then 21s song
recording that mix onto 210222_2320.wav… done but not used. ended up w/ Face ending early, started next song I don’t like, then I clumsily restarted album in background (w/ Epistle to Paradise).

On Feb 22, I created a new audio project:
main: “Music/TK/Egodeath Mystery Show/2021-02-07a Egodeath Mystery Show – Plastic Cloud/2021-02-07a Egodeath Mystery Show – Plastic Cloud.aup”
Re-export mp3, re-upload, announce.

I could have re-created [that approach was not used] the Eleusis satire reading at the end, with good music behind the entire piece. “Auto-Duck” is supported.

  3. Birth of the Egodeath community 2001.
    1. The Egodeath community (in the Egodeath Yahoo Group) contributed the Dionysus mosaic.
  4. I recently discovered the {balance} mytheme in the Dionysus mosaic.
    1. During and after the show, I recognized the equivalence [7:30-7:55 a.m. February 7, 2021] – & the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image. keeping control stability = balance. Feb 7 added that point to the new {balance} entry.
    1. During the show, I created the Key Mythemes page entry for the {balance} mytheme.
      https://egodeaththeory.wordpress.com/2020/11/15/mytheme-list/#balance
  5. Advocating the Communication layer of High Cybernetics, embodied by
    the Egodeath Concepts Collection:

    2. Album: Fly By Night, by Rush
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGJ0wHkkT-8
  10. Quiet hyper-enunciation of reading the 1925 Rolfe Amanita passage.
  11. Quiet hyper-enunciation of & voice-actor irritation reading of the first words spoken in the Egodeath Mystery Show: How the Egodeath Mystery Show was started: “My followers are taking something that is the epitome of simple and clear, and then they’re applying their big-brain analysis to it; and quickly, by the time they touch it, they leave it a smoking complicated ruin and wreck, that’s all complicated and broken, and the opposite of what it is.”
  12. file 1, 1:40:00, 1:49:00 Discussion of the 3 falloff curves of visionary plants in the 3 eras of history, aka the “Forgot curves”
    1. Maximal = Hoffman
    2. Minimal = McKenna
    3. Moderate = Ruck

Errata
  • Scope and cap each episode at 2 hours. Then break out a separate episode.
  • Length: ~4:44:10 (I could have skipped joining the two .wav files together… and produced Part 1 & 2, two separate .mp3 files🤔)
  • Download/preview for 1 week: https://we.tl/t-3W4sQKHhLT (260 kbps, sure sounds quite swishy)
  • Filesize: 485.7 MB
    • This is probably excessive. I did lower compression from 320 to 260 kbps. The problem is, sheer show length. I made huge progress during this episode, on show format; that will help keep shows to like 2.5 hour daily show.
  • DONE: I’ll split this into two and re-export with higher fidelity as two separate .mp3 files, and re-upload. Seems unsteady sound.(it *could* be my voice but it sure sounds like lossy compression).
    • todo: I’ll listen to the raw wav files compared to the 260 kbps .mp3, and decide whether to re-export/re-upload [DONE] as two 320 kbps mp3 files. I suspect an inferior codex is being used, ever since I updated some software recently. it sounds like shiite at 260. update: it sounds bad at 320 too; swishy/unsteady.

Mind-Blowing Lesson Learned from Last Night’s Playback Freakout “My Recorder Is Broken!”

  • Check recordings using multiple headphones/speakers.
  • Warmup/practice readings: separate each word. exaggerated state-actor hyper-enunciation of every letter of every word. d, t, v, w, x, etc. Send pitch soaring way high then plummetting to the depths, on each separated word.
  • I HAD BEEN GIVING MYSELF AN ‘A’ GRADE FOR PRONUNCIATION. NOW I GIVE A ‘C-‘ INSTEAD. I NOW BUMP THE STANDARDS FOR READ-ALOUD PRONUNCIATION WAY, WAY HIGHER. EVERY LETTER, LET ME CLEARLY HEAR EACH WORD, EACH SYLLABLE, LETTER.
    • REPEAT EACH WORD TO SHOWCASE EVERY SYLLABLE, EVERY LETTER.
  • SPEAK WITH AS MUCH BASS-SPECTRUM AND TREBLE V-SHAPE CONTENT AS POSSIBLE.
  • hype the letters: c d s t w x z
  • SM57 curve: bass -2dB, treb 0dB seems good per my good pair of 7506 headphones. That flat treble (w/ SM57) will be a touch mellow for NON-FATIGUING 3-hour show playback.

I just did an excellent exercise, hyping my musical pitch-swing and enunciation, reading this:
https://egodeaththeory.wordpress.com/2021/02/05/egodeath-mystery-show/#Romance-of-Fungus-World

The Romance of the Fungus World: An Account of Fungus Life in Its Numerous Guises, Both Real and Legendary
Rolfe

exaggerate the bass, treble, and pitch swing
separate each word, pronounce every letter of every word

Takeaway: I can’t fix runny chest (post-meal) or hoarse or constricted end of day, but anyway, AIM FOR VOCALIZATIN A “V” CURVE: BASSSY AND FULL BASS SPECTRUM AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, AND, LOUDLY PRONOUNCE EVERY ‘S’ AND ‘T’. SPEAK IN A “HYPED EQ CURVE” WAY. REGARDLESS OF HEADPHONES OR NOT, OR PARTICULAR MIC. IGNORE MIC, IGNORE HEADPHONES, IGNORE E-EQ; GIVE THE MIC ALL THE BASS AND TREBLE I CAN VOCALLY PRODUCE.

maybe todo: rename filename of every mp3 and every “song name” of all the Egodeath Mystery Show since #1 in 2021-01-20, re-upload every one, good for 1 week.

Length of filename and song name: try like: HAVE TO EXPERIMENT, DONT GUESS

problem: date fails to give hint of distinctive. they all look exactly identical show name, only date differs – meaningless.

Loss of Control of Speaking

omg it’s looking like the mic was accurate last night , not broken. I WAS SLURRING B/C VERY VERY TIRED – scary. plus, the other big factor, is a different set of headphones, which i consider my best hedaphones, which i hadn’t beeing using for a long time, for vocals or guitar. combination of tired slurring + good headphones = revealed slurring. scary.

what if my gear wasn’t broken last night, but i had a speaking impediment, wtf.

😳 🤦‍♂️ 🤯 🤨 😵

Vocalizing errors:

  • hoarse
  • end of day
  • quiet talking
  • very very tired
  • slurring half the s’s
  • tried to avoid bass freq’s
  • RESULT –> awful, awful, voice sound. blew my frikkin mind, “omg my gear is broken!”

but i learned and figured out a lot of miking stuff to run my show

Boy, I better guarantee i’m enunciating correctly! else i can’t troubleshoot my gear.

  • my gear’s broken: it’s playing too fast, and dropping bits.
    • nope, you’re speaking too fast.
  • my gear’s broken: it’s warbling.
    • nope, you need to get chest under control.
  • my gear’s broken: it’s playing high-pitched.
    • nope, you’re speaking too high-pitched.
  • my gear’s broken: it’s garbling the treble making me sound like awful lisp.
    • nope; you need to work on louder s & t.
  • my gear’s broken: swishy lossy compression.
    • nope, you need to work on voice steadiness.

Warmup Readings, for the Egodeath Mystery Show

My followers are taking something that is the epitome of simple and clear, and then they’re applying their big-brain analysis to it; and quickly, by the time they touch it, they leave it a smoking complicated ruin and wreck, that’s all complicated and broken, and the opposite of what it is.

Cybermonk, the very beginning of episode 1 of the Egodeath Mystery Show (“2-Level Egodeath Model.mp3″)

todo: clip the above, pitch it down, play it in the show.

PERFECT! TURN IT INTO THE SHOW MOTTO “HOW THE EGODEATH MYSTERY SHOW WAS STARTED”

😄 🎉

Shpeech Impedimensh Due to Bright Mic/Eq/Headphonesh

hypoth: bright mic/eq/headphone caushes me to shlur my mouth-treble, sho the reshult ish shpeaking with a shlur.

solution: turn down eq, speak more brightly -> no slurring; mellow yet clearly enunciated result.

Levels of Western Esotericism – Clipping or Condensing the 2021-02-06 Episodes

I’m set up to condense the later, “Caress of Steel” ep that day (parts b & c) – that “full” episode is 4:44:04 long.

Created “2021-02-06bc core Egodeath Mystery Show – Caress of Steel.aup”

“Egodeath Show 2021-02-07 Plastic Cloud.mp3” recommends clipping my discussion of the amount to which the different levels of Western Esotericism get the airplane off the ground. That’s in episode 06 or o6b/c. “the main show of 06” (seems to imply 06, not 06b/c).

Feb 20: I now have two audio project files, cleaned/normalized/prepped:

  • “2021-02-06 core Egodeath Mystery Show – Prohibitionist Art Historians.aup”
    • x
  • “2021-02-06bc core Egodeath Mystery Show – Caress of Steel.aup”
    • x

Next, scope those out to find core content timestamps. But these (06, 06b, 06c) have already been scoped-out at

The Topics That I Wanted to “Clip” from an 2021-02-06 “main” Episode

the amount to which the different levels of Western Esotericism get the airplane off the ground

the field of entheogen scholarship = field of “spot the mushroom” but only on the lower level (depictions of physical form, sheer presence, of mushrooms – failing to perceive depictions of msh *effects*, especially mental worldmodel transformation re: time/control; eternalism & cybernetics; model of self in world; model of cybernetics within eternalism.

  • Should I have called the 17b “clips” mp3 file “core” instead of “clips”? Yes, because:

  • Critique of levels in Western Esotericism and in entheogen scholarship aka the field of Spot the Mushroom.
    • Entheogen scholars are “mushroom spotters”. They are spot-the-mushroom scholars. That’s the only perspective they contribute. No cognitive phenomenology.
    • Entheogen scholars are spot-the-mushroom scholars.
    • I’m not an entheogen scholar; I’m not just a spot-the-mushroom scholar.
    • When entheogen scholars are based *within* the field, unlike me, who am based *above* the field.
    • When entheogen scholars say the word ‘consciousness’, or ‘spirituality’, they mean: Spot the Mushroom.
    • “What we do is fill-in the Grid Game. That’s what we do. That’s the purpose of the field of entheogen history scholarship: to play spot-the-mushroom; to fill-in the Grid Game.
  • Hanegraaff demonizing those evil Religionists / Eranos school. Now he’s telling people in Western Esotericism to start playing spot-the-mushroom.
    • Low esotericism; med-lev esotericism; authentic high esotericism.
    • Spot-the-mushroom “esotericism”.
    • LOW Western Esotericism = AN AIRPLANE STUCK ON THE GROUND.
    • IRVIN/RUCK GETS THE AIRPLANE 1′ OFF THE GROUND.
    • THE EGODEATH THEORY ACTUALLY FLIES THE AIRPLANE (ACTUAL ESOTERICISM) = ANALOGICAL PSYCHEDELIC ETERNALISM CONTROL-TRANSCENDENCE.
  • Theoretically identified 4 levels of the Grid Game aka Spot the Mushroom.
  • 3 plots, for min/mod/max the maximal entheogen theory of religion — all start upper left, all end in lower right;
    • Logarithmic Forgot Curve,
    • Linear Forgot Curve,
    • Exponential Forgot Curve.
  • Prohibitionist-Owned Art Historians, conflict of interest, artists make mushrooms, people consume the art mushrs, then the Exoteric Squad confiscates the art mshrms. Roasting the “Scholars for Hire” – pay us, tell us your prohibitionist exoteric tale, and we’ll scholar-it-up for you”🔥 – we don’t even need to write any books & arguments & research; we’ll just agree to tell the paid lie, all together. Brinckmann’s book didn’t work out, so we won’t go with that approach, of actually writing any scholarly works – we’ll just show our diplomas and tell our lies (with impressive celerity!)

Shorter Voice Files – Paste into a Show? Content Idea for a Show Episode: Paste-in Shorter Recordings eg Eleusis 5-min comedy piece

Did Some Practice Takes Instead of a Worthy Evening Show

I heavily revised my script or structured page for the Egodeath Mystery Show [ems] by using the technique I recommend: reading-aloud some draft text, then revising the draft text. I did about 10 takes – portions meet the bar, but no entire take meets the bar. I did various practice and fixes, tried a mic boom arm but not compatible (too heavy-duty). My energy is gone, but I got good practice in, improved my guidelines and reminders, I practiced reading the machine transcription of the mystic show.

I kinda wanted to hear my eq results, but I already know it’s dialed-in now (-6, +1), for SM57 mic. My main motivation for this evening practice was “following the script” – but that ended up being, modifying the script/structure of my show format page.

This session was good setup for a later, real take when I can be loud and have energy.

It’s good that — even if my entire shows aren’t solid from start to finish – there are many good segments/clips present within the Egodeath Mystery Show.

Part of the purpose of the 2021 voice recordings is prepping to guest on Transcendent Knowledge podcast. d/k if i’ll have the Mystic content Kafei wants.

How about a Transcendent Knowledge podcast episode with two people discussing mysticism which both of them don’t …. two people critiquing mysticism.

Headphones

Using headphones when miking:
More monitoring of self = more control of self. Headphone monitoring is like lifting the eye of awareness out from egoic mental construct/ structures.

    let me read what I wrote so far, about the unlikely “show”, the origin of the Egodeath show, 18 hours ago I thought of this show and it came crashing together. Where did this show come from? That’s the big… the surprising thing. In some ways, it’s highly predictable that this format would work for me. My approach to making a “show”, in many ways, it’s very distinctive, unique. The pieces are still falling together as we speak. I’ve stumbled into this gold mine of potential, I’m still scoping out the potential. A breakthrough feeling, like 1988 the pieces fell together. That was planned, the breakthrough I was counting on, completely deliberately planned. Jan 1988 was not a “surprise breakthrough”. It was a planned breakthrough. That’s the curious thing.
  • +42:55 (“42:17″mp3) You can look in my notebooks in 1987 and I’m tracking my progress toward satori. Nov 2011, 2012, & 2013 breakthrough 3 years in a row, how does that work? You tell me. See book Thagard.

In the midst of start of breakthrough rush just opening and revealing itself to me right now; i’m in the midst of it, the opportunity for this highly flexible vehicle, wheat it what is this show format, I don’t even know, it hasn’t finished happening yet.
  • +50:50 Its only started to happened, the show as it has revealed itself to me so far. Potentialities are only starting to reveal itself to me now. I’m live-capturing the unfolding history as the event unfolds, half-day by half-day.
  • +52:00 Guidelines written for myself, mixed feelings about reading them. Main purp of this episode , the motivation for … to capture the history, but it’s in midst of unfolding, so this is a live recording of the hist as it unfolds. I’ve done a lot of hard work on the pieces, I felt was wrestling against the equipment than good results, but suddenly everything just seems to work. No pop filter for 57! No need to speak directly into it. Learned how to aim SM57 at upper lip, for close miking. [this night quiet rec’g is much too dark/dry due to too close-mic -Cybermonk March 3 2021]

It’s a mystery. Experimental. 2nd half has some Egodeath development history.

  • Late night speaking quietly as possible.

    • Mic
    • external audio (song Divine Wind by BOC)
    • 2nd external audio – I failed to engage the mixer’s “2-TRACK ^ MAIN MIX” switch until the end – so I don’t expect my guitar until the Outro.
  • 2nd part: I started to discuss the history/story of this show, but then realized that the show has only begun to reveal itself – history is happening at high rate right now, so I’m assessing the history so far, as the show rapidly starts to reveal itself.
  • The full name of the show revealed itself. Discussed connotations. Why I don’t say “weblog” or “podcast” re: this site & show aka “voice recordings”.
  • Created a webpage for the show; surprisingly, I haven’t created any dedicated pages for my 2021 voice recordings until this.

About the Totally Unplanned Egodeath “Show” Format/Concept/ Vehicle – It’s a Mystery to Me

About the Totally Unplanned Egodeath Show Concept – 100% accidental, and yet, the pieces were all intensively developed (with no plan) since 2007… with many roots in audio tech since … uh… 1980 … or before that…

I struggled over the years to work on each element, of pieces that I had no intention of steering into a show.

I never thought of myself as an entertainer – quite the opposite, more like. Maybe an eduator though, eg April 1987 “I’m gonna figure out self control and teach the world it (via writing).”

I wrestled hard against microphones, always a big struggle… and now, “it just works”. My skills seem to fade into the background; “nothing to it” – except years of hard work. I make it look easy to myself, now — it was anything but! Why is the gear “just working” now?

🤯 🤷‍♂️ 🤔

In *no* way did I *ever* envision doing a “podcast” or “show”, or think that this format had any interesting potential for me – for my aptitudes & interests.

kinda like the Vial -> Criteria aritcle -> Proof (the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image ) decoding — IT JUST FELL IN MY LAP, FELL TOGETHER.

‘Show’? What’s that supposed to mean?

It’s a mystery to me.

Accidentally Stumbed Across a Combination of Aspects that Work Really Really Well for Me (2 or even 3 Reallys, on the Really scale by Max)

will this format hold my interest? Highly likely. Mic tech highly appealing. Zero production is highly appealing. A vehicle for me to go on and on about wonderful me (ie, Transcendent Knowledge, my writings / thoughts about Transcendent Knowledge).

Why does this format , that i stumbled across 18 hours ago, seem to work so very well for me? Why does it bring out a set of aptitudes – and interests – i didn’t think I had? What’s the nature of this show? What will it become? WHAT’S *THAT* SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

🤨

It’s a mystery to me.

The mystery is: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SHOW??!!

I have every reason to believe that this format will continue to fit like a glove, and that I will have endless content to fill this format. Is this just a moment of enthusiasm that will fade?

  • been interested in mic & voice since at least 2007 when I got the idea to record…
  • look at my many microcassette voice Transcendent Knowledge development cassettes of 1995.
  • I been trying *hard* to make vocal recording Transcendent Knowledge development work, since… some time after 1985 when I couldn’t handwrite fast enough — or type fast enough, to do Transcendent Knowledge development.

A complete surprise “out of nowhere” …. with a TON of precedent. As they say of bands: “an overnight success that came out of nowhere” — after decades of working hard on the elements.

5 Big Themes came together in Jan 1988 — the breakthrough was REQUIRED completely planned and tracked by % progress during 1987. INTENSE URGENCY, EVERYTHING WAS RIDING ON THIS BREAKTHROUGH. Not sure I’ve told the story.

Thoughts about this show format, or, my voice-recording format, which i never planned

A solid show. Good job, me.

  • topic to discuss: how did … the history of how this show great format accidentally fell together “by accident” after years of hard work on audio. Where did this show idea/format come from? Uhhh…. I have no idea. By accident, luck, and a ton of hard work & precursors. Sort of a “breakthough instance”. Accidental deliberate breakthrough, the result of many years of hard work, fell together by accident.
  • topic: Will I continue this format? Likely, bc:
    • I get to play w/ mics <– the #1 main benefit of the Egodeath Show
    • I get to read my past writings
    • I get to work on my sh*t personality (negative tone of voice + criticizing everything [look in the mirror, buddy])
    • dumbly, i discover an aptitude for on-the-fly cobbling together fun + profound content.
      • bring together my own music production knowledge
      • gear-fest
      • tons and tons of content from my Transcendent Knowledge development history.
      • great content online that i can read
    • The “show” format – surprisingly – works/fits really well for me. I never would have thought. There may be *hints* of this in my 2007 recordings at Egodeath.com. The “show” format seems capable of “packaging” any of my previous recording types… I’ve done so many (2007, 2018) different types of recordings, long list of types:
      • 2007 voice pratice rec’s where I speed-talk throughthe Auust 2007 Psychonautica episode 13 hosted by Max Freakout.
      • Guesting on Psychonautica.
      • Guesting on Erik Davis’ show.
      • 2018 voice readings of my writings.
      • 2018 special-effects processing of my speaking (tons of these are on my music player; my Egodeath playlist has all kinds of 2018 (and now 2021) recordings of mine.
      • Some rare video-website livestreams, just barely enough to kick my butt and get humiliated by the tech (eg the wrong mic is being used by computer/ livestream – fail! super frustrating)
      • My 2007 recordings with my guitar in the background. <– a sign/ indicator, you could predict from this, I’d likely end up doing a “show” format.
      • WHO THE HELL WOULDA THOUGHT THAT A “SHOW” FORMAT COULD WORK WELL FOR Transcendent Knowledge development?!
      • But I reject any whiff of “high production ” — DISCUSS THE TREND AWAY FROM EDITED YOUTUBE VIDS, TOWARD LIVESTREAMS — it’s way, way easier to do a “live broadcast” format than “carefully edited painstaking format pre-crafted”.
      • We’re moving back to a 1930s Radio Live Show In-Studio format, w/o recording technology per later recording/playback format.
      • Can mix-in prerecorded / pre-produced content. Like a radio DJ; live talking + playing re-recorded / pre-produced music content.

The idea “what about an Egodeath Show format?” is an idea I thought of 18 hours ago, and it “caught fire” and rocketed into the heavens. I *did* work really hard on the elements, but I never thought of a show format. I was slightly influenced by Max, but …

I can’t believe the pieces are finally coming together [but in no way am i implying that the “show” format ever crossed my mind], after years of such mixed results. I never thought of doing this, and it’s falling together, I never dreamed of doing a “show”, . I’ve even had big failures, but the clouds are parting and I can’t believe the good quality that accidentally fell together… including new good ideas for content. I never planned this, but I did work really hard, as everyone extremely knows since 2007 focus on audio. I never planned “I want to develop my speaking, voice, mic/recording technique to do a show”, and it’s been hard work, with many failures, many successes, but much difficulty over the years 2007, 2018, 2021.

read-aloud WITH NO DAMN SELF-INTERRUPTION DAMMIT! my plaincourault article. STFU AND READ!! cn u b any more annoying??!! spazzo

errata – instead of saying “assert / waffle / deny”, clearer is:

“presence [of plants] / waffle / absence [assertion, about plants}
“PRESENCE / WAFFLE / ABSENCE”
PRESENCE / “PRESENCE THEN ABSENCE” / ABSENCE
PRESENCE / “PRESENCE BUT ABSENCE” / ABSENCE

IE, “assert” is too ambiguous., same w/ “deny”. “presence” is unambig, so, is better. “assert” stands for “assert plants”, deny means “deny plants” — but better, singlee-word that’s clear, is:

presence/absence <– 1 word, yet unambiguous.

“the forgot curve” = how quickly, according to a given scholar, the plants were reduced, in 2nd gen vs the 1st gen. In a 2-gen model.

see if I can substantiate anything about Samorini claims. rather; repeat that I’m reporting the truth of my feeling from going through his article. It’s a “vibe” thing, not only a fact of his actual assertions. Comparing my vibe vs his vibe.

Contributions of Jan Irvin – the Most Favorable Possible View; Appreciation of Jan Irvin. Everything Irvin says is right. His limitations != being wrong; errors of fact. I really don’t care if he were to be factually incorrect – small beans.

I disagree that “Irvin is completely irrelevant”, as an amateur witch told me other day. Irvin is solid; reliable. Just limited. I trust Irvin’s research.

Early Mycologists Books

below section copied from a Hatsis page of mine:

What Hatsis mis-calls “the Allegro theory, of mushrooms in Christian art”, is actually, in fact, “the 1924 Rolfe-Ramsbottom-Brightman interpretation of the Plaincourault tree“.

Article:
Wasson and Allegro on the Tree of Knowledge as Amanita
Michael Hoffman, 2006, Journal of Higher Criticism
Subsection: Ramsbottom, 1953
http://www.egodeath.com/WassonEdenTree.htm#_Toc135889189

It is unambigous and safe to say that there were positions taken, about the Plaincourault tree. There was no real debate about that image.

Among Rolfe, Ramsbottom, Brightman; Brinckmann, Panofsky, Wasson; & Allegro, there was neither discussion, defined positions, nor debate, about the relevantly scoped questions:

  • To what extent mushrooms in Greek & Christian religion & culture?
    • To what extent mushrooms in Christianity?
      • To what extent was the Eucharist recognized as mushrooms?

Instead, all of them halted as if taboo, getting themselves completely stuck on A SINGLE ART INSTANCE. Why?

Because none of them are entheogen scholars.

Of Rolfe, Ramsbottom, Brightman; Brinckmann, Panofsky, Wasson; & Allegro, only Wasson took the mantle of an entheogen scholar, but with the Pope, as his banker, Wasson instead censored Brinckmann’s book, and like Terrence McFakea, and like Hatsis, Wasson says

DO NOT LOOK FOR MUSHROOMS IN CHRISTIAN ART.

THESE AREN’T THE SHROOMS YOU’RE LOOKING FOR.

There are no mushrooms in Christianity, because I, Pope’s banker, say so – in my completely evasive, mealy-mouth, roundabout way that could mean anything, by my universally confusing and vague statement “I said there was no … I was wrong”.

Robert Graves 1957-1973 may be the first to pose these properly framed questions.

Rotating Among Mics

Hi Scholar,

Thanks for confirming that the Yeti❤️ is good.I automatically know that your recordings are clear, b/c the Yeti is reliably clear (unless aimed at one’s lap or placed far away).

🎙
🎶
👑

I want a Blue – Yeti, to add to my mic closet, to rotate among mics (that’s a big goal, in itself; for peak fun). 

A big plan and motivation I’m enthusiastic about: I really want to have an assortment of mics and rotate among them.

I love the videos that use Yeti – bright and clear. 

I got to hold a blue-colored Yeti, and it feels heavy/solid, pleasant packaging, great look & feel, I was surprised.

The Yeti really delivers the great results at YouTube, and I’m always glad to see people using it, because I know that the video, at YouTube, won’t sound muddy.

Common Yeti usage mistake:

Speak into the side of the Yeti, not the top/end; the Yeti is a side-address mic, not an end-address mic (or whatever the latter term is). 

That is, the Yeti should tilt away, not toward the mouth.

Advise Yeti in Mono mode

I advise Mono mode, not Stereo mode, for the Yeti, when doing solo vocal work. 

To focus and stabilize the sound.In my podcast today, I again dared to speculate that Max Freakout (for the Transcendent Knowledge Podcast) uses a Blue – Yeti in Stereo mode, because I hear him drifting left and right.  

I’m very happy, elated – surprisingly – with the Shure – SM57 dynamic mic.I had been struggling with it before, for voice; but yesterday, all the pieces came together.  

Solved hiss problem of SM57 by learning how to close-mic: 

The Yeti large-diaphragm condenser mic has much less hiss than my SM57 dynamic mic – but with 3.5″ close-miking (off to the side of my mouth), hiss isn’t an issue.

YouTube main competitor to Yeti is Shure – SM7b (but I’d engage its bass cut & treble boost switches) – also, RE20

At YouTube, I dislike the muddy tone of Shure – SM7b dynamic broadcasters’ mic. 

People call the Shure – SM57 a “poor man’s Shure – SM7b”.

The popular electro-voice – RE20 dynamic (broadcasters’) mic seems clearer (brighter) than the SM7b.

The SM57 is used for the U.S. presidential podium, so that encouraged me to keep trying.

My great, epic show yesterday, used the SM57 and I credited switching to that mic for my good luck for everything coming together.

Assessment after listening: A solid show.

  • Filename: “Egodeath Show 2021-02-04.mp3”
    • There’s a false start (2 start-of-show passages) when I realized I had gain at 0 instead of 55. Too bad I didn’t also realize so quick that it was in mono and I should have then switched it to stereo. I like the first start, so I kept it.

  • Microphone:
    • Initial part: TASCAM DR-05 stereo field recorder, handheld, in monophonic (I initially said, incorrectly, that it was in stereo mode).
    • Main part: in stereo mode, handheld, then on mic stand.

Started as morning throwaway show, but, became the main show – good discussion of many analysis tools for the maximal entheogen theory of religion and assessing where to put each scholar on the spectrum from min/mod/max.

    • I “proved” that the sequence really is 1) eternalism nonduality experience, then after that, 2) control-nonduality experience — not the other way round.
    • I added to the Transcendent Knowledge Podcast Ideas page: per Max, clarify why I’m the only theorist who claims that the ego is above all, a control agent.
    • Hard drive is full, gotta deal w/ that. I have just enough space /clever way, to produce this new episode.
  • ‘gnostics’ as a garbage-can to throw any enemy into
  • ~55:00 why the main article is in the sequence it is, w/ eternalism THEN cybernetics.
    • Order of main sections of 2006 main article – eternalism then cybernetics.
    • Order of puzzle pieces in 2006 main article — they are in random order – artist didn’t ask me about order.
    • ~55:00 How to make the case that eternalism nonduality comes before cybernetic nonduality. Try the reverse order, does it match reports? NO.
    • ~59:00, 1:01:00 Max’s question of why ego = controller, and egoic transcendence = the control-transcendence. Added to Possible Transcendent Knowledge Podcast Topics to cover page. top of https://egodeaththeory.wordpress.com/2021/01/14/ideas-for-podcast-topics
Morning/Midday/Evening Shows

The way it’s shaped up:

  • Morning show – vocal warmup/ vocalization analysis. Messing around w/ bassy voice.
  • Midday show – Main show; loud full-volume talking, solid content.
  • Evening show – voice worn out, can’t talk loud, out of practice since the morning warmup. Chill.
  • I recommend the above download link instead.
    • Filename: “Egodeath Show 2021-02-03b.mp3”
    • Slightly lower fidelity: https://we.tl/t-BySY7OPGiN (57.7 MB, 210 kbps)
      = “Egodeath Show 2021-02-03b.mp3”
      I believe this sounds a bit swishy/unsteady treble.

Draft to Brown (Not Sent)

My process for emailing scholars:

  • in email app, write 12 pages. 
  • Move that to a weblog page. 
  • Try again, briefly this time. 
  • Outcome: 12 new pages of email. 
  • Move that to a weblog page. 
  • Repeat.

Holy smokes my radio show came together today. 

🤩 🎙 📻 😳

Maybe my change to the SM57 mic was good luck.  

There’s room for improvement of course, but still. 

So many dud aspects of previous recordings, then this.

I talked in one segment about the front cover of the Golden Guide .pdf 1976 book I sent, showing in lower left, a serrated bulb quite similar to the vial held by the saint.  

Happy Critiquing  😄 👎

My tone of voice is almost there — but I’m attuned critically to my tone of voice now, and I still sound bitter when I critique. 

I fear I’ve developed a very negative tone I had to try hard to undo, very recently. 

It’s hard to critique scholars, while keeping a warm, pleasant tone.  

I need to force a “smile” tone all the time, to get a “neutral” resulting tone.

I withdrew from guesting on Hatsis’ show partly b/c his adversarial tone — but I’m the worst. 

I merely try to communicate my disagreement/ disapproval, and my tone immediately “reads” as angry/ condemnatory, sharply bitter.  

It’s remarkable, that so much of personality is simply the tone of speaking.

Everyone needs to change their position to improve their position – and needs to be forthright about it.

When I make a mistake – which I don’t, but were I to – I would say so; “I was wrong about X, so I changed my position to Y.”


I’m far from understanding Hatsis’ tangled, confused mess of a non-position “position”.

Figuring out Hatsis’ position (of the week) is on my priority list, somewhere a ways below “Polish my bottle-cap collection”.

His position is slip-n-slide. Which is not properly a position.

Let us know, when you have a stable, determinate, actual position.

My motto expressing my Philosophy of Science

THE “OLD THEORY” AINT REALLY MUCH OF A THEORY, but a shifting, incoherent, UNSTABLE heap of presumptions – really, biases, which is to say, *a set of attitudes*, not a “theory”.

An un-considered heap of assorted assumptions.

Email to M. Hoffman

I’ll check out and talk about wassonwest.  I’ve criticized Wasson.  Constructive, is the goal.

I’m now better positioned to re-try a critique of the article – no promises, I have no thoughts except I’m amazed I was able to paraphrase it w/o getting swept up (carried away) by critique-mode, this time.

The attention required to publish books, vs. the headspace and shelter to think, & do more research.

1. My paraphrasing of each paragraph has too much gaps, it has to be smoother but I don’t want to accomplish that by editing it.  I have to speak my own words slower, smoother.  For better comprehensibility.  I felt like oh no it wasn’t good enough to send.

2. Amazingly, miraculously, I refrained from any critique!  Usually I give way too much critique, I get lost in critique, and fail to read-aloud the text that I’m trying to critique.  My first attempts (discarded takes) to read-aloud the article while jumbling my critique (mixing my critique into my reading of the article at the same time), were a disaster; I got nowhere in reading the article (made zero progress), and made awful confusion mistakes.

I need to read-aloud slower.

My “radio show” today omg, came out great and I talk about doing a better job of reading/paraphrasing / critiquing articles. 

I’ll read paragraphs at Amazon & Academia.edu:

1. Read paragraph

2. Paraphrase author’s assertions.

3. Critique.  (Step 3, not step 1!!)

I’m listening to my radio show today’s, now.  I think in the 2nd half I talk about a smoother reading-aloud format. 

I critique my yesterday’s reading of your article.  1:47:45

I’m very happy about the format I figured out yesterday, but it has to be smoother delivery.

Content
  • Talking about reading-aloud Hoffman’s Entheogens Mystery Religions article
  • Errata – WHAT THE HELL AM I TALKING ABOUT REWRITING MAIN ARTICLE – FALSE. Not gonna happen, stupid idea, don’t want, don’t need. Aint broke dont fix.
  • Big Game Hunting – Playing (& winning) the “Spot the Mushroom” game * 100 isn’t enough. Need to be victorious at proving not just the maximal entheogen theory of religion but rather:
    the maximal entheogenic-esotericism theory of religion & Transcendent Knowledge.
    • The Big Game Hunting Claim: I have scientifically proved
      the maximal entheogenic-esotericism theory of religion.
    • My October 2002 claim amounts to:
      I’M AGAINST THE PREMISE WHICH MODERATE ENTHEOGEN SCHOLARSHIP ASSERTS, WHICH IS THAT ENTHEOGEN USE DECREASED OVER TIME; THAT (PER JAMES KENT) AS CULTURE EVOLVES, VISIONARY PLANT USE DECREASES. THAT PLANTS WERE IN PRE-HISTORY, THEN DECREASED.
    • 2002, I announced the more productive alternative to the “ENTHEOGENS SOON DECREASED” premise, which is self-defeating.
      Entheogen use didn’t decrease, but is constant throughout history.
      *Now*, with that premise, what do we perceive?
      Answer: My premise, the Maximal premise — but *not* the waffle-gang’s Moderate premise – reveals the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image; = 70 mshroom trees in heart of Christian art; = scientific proof that Transcendent Knowledge = religion = entheogenic esotericism = plants, and that’s ubiquitous in all religions, eras, & regions.
      • I cheated; had advantage – I had full the egodeath theory core theory , the cybernetic theory of ego transcendence, in hand, before I entered their game of “spot the mushroom”.
      • To win the little game, of spot the mshroom, you need the cybernetic theory of ego transcendence, and ideally the mytheme theory too; ie, my full the egodeath theory.
      • but we shouldn’t just
        play to win the little game, of “spot the mushroom”;
        we should
        play to win the big game, of spot the entheogenic esotericism,
        which =
        proper esotericism
        AUTHENTIC ESOTERICISM
        actual esotericism
        vs.
        exoteric esotericism
        fake esotericism
        pseudo-esotericism
        fake esotericism
        poser esotericism
        PHONY “ESOTERICISM”
        Western Ersatzocism
    • “proper esotericism” = analogical psychedelic eternalism dependent-control; control-transformation, passing through the gateway, guarded by angel, sword, flame, dragon/serpent/monster.
    • For angel+sword, see the Canterbury Psalter “mushroom tree/ hanging/ sword” image, connected to God: angel on the right of God, sword on left of God in the image. No flame, no serpent, no dragon in that image.
    • In that image, the gateway from
      the eternalism beginner-level nonduality-experiencing to
      the cybernetics advanced-level nonduality-experiencing,
      is represented by the themes:
      • non-branching, angel, mshroom, sword, self-threatening, relenting.
    • Not discussed: the great Exo/Eso “w@r” (that’s explicitly discussed in a previous episode).
    • Motto of the Moderate Entheogen Theory Scholars –
      “PLAY TO LOSE, OR TIE”.
  • todo: make this episode available for longer than 1 week.
  • todo: add timestamp for each segment of this great episode.
    • The “grandiose claim/ don’t leave any cash on the table” segment is long / highly repetitive. 🤨 🕰
    • i’m gonna skip from now on, when listening to this otherwise pleasant episode. It *is* the most ultimate point in the world, true; but still.
    • Crafting the ultimate big claim:
      I HAVE SCIENTIFICALLY PROVED THE MAXIMAL ENTHEOGENIC-ESOTERICISM THEORY OF RELIGION.
      There, saved you like … many minutes.
  • 1:09:30 Does the word ‘secret’ = an entheogen diminishment fallacy?
  • 1:12:00-1:22:35 (10.5 minutes) The Amanita vial as an example of why the Moderate entheogen theory of religion is a disaster, that blinds entheogen scholars, compared to the Maximal theory.
    • 1:38:00-1:42:45 Golden Guide to Serrated Amanita Bulbs
      • 1:38:26 <– MOMENT OF DISCOVERY! that the cover of the book has an amanita with serrations very similar to the vial. Disproving an argument for the Moderate entheogen theory (sry for wrecking your pub’d article)
  • 1:47:45 Read-aloud of M. Hoffman’s article on Entheogens & Mystery Religions: 1st paragraph only, and afterwards, smooth paraphrasing of it.
  • Read-aloud the first, long paragraph of Hanegraaff’s article Entheogenic Esotericism. And my attempted smooth paraphrasing – I develop technique of “To do the paraphrase pass, do a 2nd-pass reading, but loosely“. That will trigger my objections, which I can — in the 2nd or 3rd phase — critique.
    “I agree with the author to the extent that he means A; I disagree, to the extent he means B.”
  • Segment: Designing a format (challenging to do w/o editing) for READ-ALOUD FROM AMAZON & ACADEMIA.EDU:
    • Smooth pleasant (thus, high-comprehensibility) recording:
      • Read a paragraph.
      • Paraphrase the author’s message.
      • Critique.
  • I’m still working-out a lot of wrinkles for show production & show format, while on-air, admittedly. But good potentials for future show format are clear, and the content here is as solid as any of my shows; not to be topped.
  • Rock bands 1970s did smooth playing, easy recording.
  • 2000s bands can’t play smoothly; crutch of DAW editing.
    • But my show – the deal is – is a “live broadcast” format, = no editing pass exists; it goes straight to “live/airwaves”.
    • My producer friends cannot grasp this; they say “Just fix it in Edit.” I’m all like THERE IS NO “EDIT” PHASE, IT’S LIVE BROADCAST, DODO HEAD!! YOU DAW-ADDICT POSERS JUST DON’T GET IT. 🤦‍♂️

Fact Check of me: TRUE! Proof that I’m always right. And 8 years quicker than Hanegraaff. I wrote the phrase, extremely boldly with maximum force (“sh00t to k1ll”), “entheogenic esotericism” on the World-Wide Web on June 12, 2004: https://egodeathyahoogroup.wordpress.com/2021/01/09/egodeath-yahoo-group-digest-66/#message3335
See, *that’s* how u should write, waffle gang; the very opposite of “soften the blow to ingratiate yourself with the dominant establishment hegemonic paradigm Exotericism received view, so reasonable, so anti-plant.”

Group: egodeathMessage: 3335From: Michael HoffmanDate: 12/06/2004
Subject: Authentic esotericism is entheogenic esotericism
Authentic esotericism is entheogenic esotericism. Entheogens are the key to
esotericism. This is the simplest possible theory of esotericism, and the
most natural, the least contrived and strained. Theories of esotericism that
are not based on entheogens suffer from the problem of grandiose verbiage,
unmet promises and claims, chronic vagueness, excuses for lack of potent and prompt efficacy, and no ability to deliver the experiences which are talked about. Drug-free esotericism doesn’t work; it is not effectively ergonomic.

Errata, and Why I *Must* Stop Interrupting Reading-Aloud a Paragraph to Prematurely Switch to Critique/Praise Mode
  • I claimed that Hanegraaff was good for using the word ‘natural’ for some psychoactives. In fact, this topic has nothing to do with the fallacy of “traditional mystics’ natural, non-drug methods”. At least I did realize that – chastened — at the very end of my commentary; I ended up having to retract my interruption point. My dislike of ‘artificial’ for synthetics is valid, but I conflated two different domains. SHUT UP AND READ-ALOUD, fool.
    • solution: step 2, “paraphase”, is simply re- read-aloud of the paragraph, w/o filler words and 5-syllable words. That’s the time to set-up for a critique. thinkin’:
      1. Step 1: read-aloud, strictly. no interrupting.
      2. Step 2: Loose read-aloud. Critique/interruption allowed, this time/ during this pass.

How Brown Asked Whether Egodeath Community Wrote About Criteria of Proof

I Remembered How Brown Asked Whether the Egodeath Community Wrote About Criteria of Proof; Leading to Criteria Article; Leading to Psalter Proof Article, Proving 70 Psychoactive Mushrooms in the Heart of Christian Art

It’s about my having disproved a certain Moderate Entheogen Theory argument about a vial…

“Looking closely at the photo, Julie disagreed with this description.
“Jer,” she said, calling me over to the hotel room window to examine the photo in the light. “Look closely, there at the bottom. That’s a straight edge, not the round bulb of an Amanita. And furthermore, this white “bulb” is serrated all over with regular grooves. That’s not a mushroom she’s carrying, but a white vial with a red top probably holding her healing oil.”

Serrations on Amanita base.

Psalter: It’s That Time Again – Facepalm Time

agghh this accursed image! making a fool out of me, month after month! what next?!

The entheogenic banqueter (the red initiate) who has taken off is supported and pulled by the angel of God by his {right arm}, emphatically not by his {left arm raised up floating} in the air, nor by his {feet} in the ordinary state on the right-hand side of the column, where we are blocked from seeing God’s power.

[10:32 p.m. February 2, 2021] – Correction. I finally recognized now that his feet are not to be read as “floating”, but clearly can be read and are to be read as “right foot on column; left foot floating”. This image embarrasses me month after month; this image continues to reveal “obvious” things that I was blind to and dense about. I added the following observation and struck my incorrect statement above, “supported … nor by his {feet}”. Below, I now added a zoomed, cropped image of his feet to look again. I did look intently before, specifically at his feet, and failed to figure out the reading of his feet; now it is obvious — why couldn’t I figure out the obvious reading, before? I think I evaluated his feet very early on, in my November interpretation pass.
The red initiate’s right foot rests on the stable column, and his left foot floats in thin-air, giving no purchase or support. Here’s what’s different this time:

  1. When I started decoding this image, I looked at his feet, and they didn’t seem to be firmly, sufficiently resting on the base, nor floating.
  2. I decoded all feet in the entire image, but didn’t re-look at these feet enough.
  3. Much later, after evaluating and thinking about all the feet in the image, I took another look, casually, at his feet, and finally now saw – based on the “rules” of how “foot resting on base” is depicted throughout the image – that his feet clearly fit the pattern; his feet are sufficiently on or off of the column base. I had to develop a solid, reliable basis and grounding for judgment on this matter, after comparing all other feet in the image, to see what constitutes “resting on the column base”. -mh, Feb. 2, 2021.
Added crop [10:32 p.m. February 2, 2021]. Right foot rests on stable column base, left foot floats in thin air – thus following the pattern of this overall image.
