“We see what we believe, and not just the contrary; and to change what we see, it is sometimes necessary to change what we believe.” Jeremy Narby

This episode is a re-broadcast of OTB #113 from two years ago and is a very important show in terms of understanding what I consider to be a significant thread of connection between several deeply inter-related meta-ideas, concepts, and beings which taken together reveal a major gestalt defining what it means to be here now on Mother Earth.
The cetaceans are of course the pelagic marine mammals we refer to as the whales and dolphins. I think of them as not only a ‘true extra-terrestrial intelligence’ but also the ‘ultimate indigenous people.’ Their continuity of consciousness, memory, knowledge and wisdom collectively span thousands of millennia. They are the guardians of water-based life and have, I believe, borne witness to many planetary-level catastrophes that resulted in major mass-extinction events for land-based life. I believe that they are trying to warn us of an impending catastrophe of this nature.
Keringke is a group of Arrernte women artists in the central desert of Australia with whom I have very deep connections. I met them in 2003 and gave them a nice set of painted rocks that had a new style of painting that had been gifted to me by the energy of the dream-time when I was in the Wollumbin caldera in 2000. This style consists of organic non-repeating rainbow glyphs that seem to me to be related to the information that makes life possible = DNA.
Robert Lawlor is an interdisciplinary researcher, scholar, historian and metaphysical philosopher whose book Voices of the First Day: Awakening in the Aboriginal Dream-time provides generalized yet valuable insights into the cosmology and world-view of the world’s oldest continuously-existing cultures, the First Nations Australians. Central to most of these cosmologies is an ancient kinship with the cetaceans, as well as with a guardian being known as the Rainbow Serpent.
John Lilly was a neurobiologist who became interested in bottle-nosed dolphins, set out on an immense journey of inner exploration, then returned to the dolphins with a vastly expanded ‘horizon of identity.’ His vast legacy includes not only having inspired an entire generation of people to think of cetaceans as fellow beings, not just ‘magnificent creatures’, but also profound visionary insights into what is happening on Mother Earth now: a battle between water-based life, for whom the whales and dolphins act as inter-stellar ‘repeater stations’, and what Lilly calls the ‘solid-state entity’, an electronic quasi-‘life’-form based on silicon and computer technology.
Jeremy Narby is an anthropological researcher investigating the neo-shamanic dimensions of how DNA may function as an autonomous ‘intelligence’ which communicates directly not only with people but with all the life-forms that it helps to create. He speculates that the image of the serpent running through the mythology of almost every culture actually represents the coiled and stranded form of the DNA helix. According to some beliefs, DNA itself may be thought of as an ‘extra-terrestrial intelligence.’
Immanuel Velikovsky was an iconoclastic psychoanalyst who studied under Sigmund Freud then set out on his own path, discovering or realizing that the history or mythology of practically every human culture has similar if not identical events of great importance, which are invariably those of planetary-level catastrophe and destruction, often originating from celestial influences. He also surmised or observed that humanity as a whole is suffering from a psychic malaise or neurosis resulting from our ancestors having been repeatedly traumatized by these planetary-level catastrophes, many of which are spoken of in historical literature as well as demonstrated by the geological record of Mother Earth’s body. This unconscious trauma manifests as full-spectrum self-destructiveness through our desire to ’emulate the gods’ who destroyed us repeatedly long ago…and may do so again.
I could write a whole book about all this, and may do so some day, but for now I will stop and allow your mind to take all this in and to draw your own conclusions on the relationship between these ideas, concepts and beings.
