Monday morning Halloween hijinks

by | Oct 31, 2022 | Mondays | 1 comment

Here we go with another Monday. This one, though, is rather unusual, as it is Halloween today – which means, of course, the inevitable parade of children trooping outside of your house, dressed up as superheroes and cartoon characters, begging for candy. Good for them. It’s cute, it’s funny, and it’s actually kind of charming.

Keep in mind, however, that Halloween has some unusual origins:

I’ve heard people argue that this night originated from a deal struck between Constantine and the pagans that he ruled over in the western Roman Empire, wherein they were allowed to keep their ancient customs of dressing up as ghosts and monsters to scare away evil spirits, in return for the dominion of a Christian power. I tend to discount this view, but I can sort of see where it comes from.

This whole month is all about scary movies, too, because this is kind of the season for that sort of thing. So let’s kick off with a few trailers for those movies:

Of course, Halloween is not all fun and games and really stupid movies. There IS a real spiritual element associated with Halloween, and we must NEVER ignore it.

This site is by a Christian man (not a good one, mind you), for Christian men. As such, we tell the truth about real evil around here, and we don’t try to sugarcoat the realities of the spirit realm.

You need to keep in mind that there IS, in fact, real evil in the world, and there ARE people who seek to call that shit down into our world. Here is the testimony of a woman who used to be a witch – yes, such people were and are real – in which she explains exactly why this particular night is so important, and dangerous, in the spirit realm:

Take it from a Christian: DO NOT screw around with the occult. You will lose your mind, and then you will lose your soul, and then you will have nothing left. There is no way back from that until and unless you give your life to Jesus – only He has the power to restore life to those who are already dead. If you steep yourself in the occult, YOU. WILL. DIE.

Keep your garments clean. Stay away from the occult and from the evil spirits of that realm. Understand that you, as a Christian, weild power and authority over daemons and spirits through the Holy Spirit itself, through the name of Jesus Christ. It is a name that enrages and terrifies daemons, because they literally have no power against it.

Which is why, if you utter the name of Jesus in most “polite” social circles today, people will physically recoil from you. That’s when you know that you are in the midst of evil.

Dawn of Battle

The Male Brain has plenty of good stuff for us this week. We start with a video from a channel called The Royal Ocean Film Society about a serious problem afflicting modern cinematography:

This is what happens when visual effects become completely overused, which is precisely what is happening now. Audiences come to the movies to be wowed and entertained. Visual effects give them that wow factor. Yet, audiences have grown tired of that, and are now no longer interested in paying for all but the most over-the-top visual spectaculars. So, inevitably, studios dump ever more money into ever fewer films that get ever bigger and more ridiculous.

That also helps explain the runaway success of Top Gun Maverick – because that is a movie which used practical effects wherever possible. The actors were actually in aircraft while being dumped into extremely difficult high-G manoeuvres. The film scenes looked REAL, because they WERE real.

The Babylon Bee continues their epic and hilarious series showing what happens when Commiefornians move to Texas:

Seriously, just ban all Clownipornians from leaving their failed state already. They voted for this shit, they should suffer through the consequences.

Mark Dice delights in watching a clueless bimbo presstitute from MSNPC struggle through an interview with Trump supporters, who are plainly far better informed and educated than she is – despite her glittering college degrees:


China Uncensored tries to unpack one of the most widely distributed clips from the recent CPC congress, where former Party Chairman Hu Jintao was rather unceremoniously escorted out of the building:

This has been all over TEH INNARWEBZ, both inside and outside of China. Lots of people are wondering what the heck happened. Mercouris and others argue that this is simply a case of a sick and disoriented old man being escorted out of the building for the sake of his own health. Others reckon that this was highly symbolic, and amounted to a purging of the pro-Western faction from the ranks of the CPC.

Who is right? Hu knows…

Do not celebrate prematurely – if at all – about Brolon’s buyout of Twatter. The man is not on our side and never has been. This is nothing more than an attempt to move Twatter out of the Batshit Insane Globalist Left to the Sane Mildly Moderate Globalist Left. It’s still a globalist platform, nothing more.


The Drinker watched House of the Dragon, and thought quite highly of it:


Reading Too Much Into Things

Your “Science is F***ING WEIRD” moment of the week is from The Male Brain is genuinely quite weird, and concerns the possibilities of quantum entanglement when related to the human brain:

Recent proposals in quantum gravity have suggested that unknown systems can mediate entanglement between two known quantum systems, if the mediator itself is non-classical. This approach may be applicable to the brain, where speculations about quantum operations in consciousness and cognition have a long history. Proton spins of bulk water, which most likely interfere with any brain function, can act as the known quantum systems. If an unknown mediator exists, then NMR methods based on multiple quantum coherence (MQC) can act as an entanglement witness. However, there are doubts that today’s NMR signals can contain quantum correlations in general, and specifically in the brain environment. Here, we used a witness protocol based on zero quantum coherence (ZQC) where we minimized the classical signals to circumvent the NMR detection limits for quantum correlation. For short repetitive periods, we found evoked signals in most parts of the brain, whereby the temporal appearance resembled heartbeat-evoked potentials (HEPs). We found that those signals had no correlates with any classical NMR contrast. Similar to HEPs, the evoked signal depended on conscious awareness. Consciousness-related or electrophysiological signals are unknown in NMR. Remarkably, these signals only appeared if the local properties of the magnetization were reduced. Our findings suggest that we may have witnessed entanglement mediated by consciousness-related brain functions. Those brain functions must then operate non-classically, which would mean that consciousness is non-classical.

Dawn Pine helpfully provided a link that explains the concept in layman’s terms:

Scientists from Trinity College Dublin believe our brains could use quantum computation. Their discovery comes after they adapted an idea developed to prove the existence of quantum gravity to explore the human brain and its workings.

The brain functions measured were also correlated to short-term memory performance and conscious awareness, suggesting quantum processes are also part of cognitive and conscious brain functions.

If the team’s results can be confirmed—likely requiring advanced multidisciplinary approaches—they would enhance our general understanding of how the brain works and potentially how it can be maintained or even healed. They may also help find innovative technologies and build even more advanced quantum computers.

Dr. Christian Kerskens, lead physicist at the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (TCIN), is the co-author of the research article that has just been published in the Journal of Physics Communications. He said, “We adapted an idea, developed for experiments to prove the existence of quantum gravity, whereby you take known quantum systems, which interact with an unknown system. If the known systems entangle, then the unknown must be a quantum system, too. It circumvents the difficulties to find measuring devices for something we know nothing about.

Soooo basically your brain might be useful for creating unhackable lighting fast quantum computing applications.


Your long read of the week is part of a series by Francis Lee, writing for The Saker, in which he reflects upon the causes and consequences of the 2014 Maidan coup – or the “Revolution of Dignity”, as the hohols for some reason insist on calling it:

The collapse of communism in the Soviet Union in 1990/91 and the touted ending of the Cold War, saw the imposition of a virtual Treaty of Versailles on Russia under the puppet dictator and buffoon, Boris Yeltsin. Russia, like Germany in 1919, was to be kept down, humiliated, and have its nose rubbed into its new status at every opportunity. Moreover, its economy was almost destroyed by the economic shock therapy imposed by the IMF/World Bank, under the tutelage of one Jeffrey Sachs. The various ex-Warsaw Pact states – Poland, Hungary, DDR, the Baltics, Czech Republic – were drawn into the EU and then NATO. NATO itself was expanded rather than wound down.

This was an interesting development since the EU’s foreign policy orientation underwent a profound change (its economic policies had already changed – for the worse). Initially the EU was supposed to be a third force standing between American capitalism, and Soviet communism. This at least is how De Gaulle saw it: non-aligned with an independent foreign policy akin perhaps to Yugoslavia under Tito. Additionally, the policy outlined by Jacques Delors was one of managed capitalism of the Germany sozialemark- twirtschaft variety and French etatisme seemed more attractive than the deregulated, financialized systems of the US and UK.

As things unfolded, however, the Delors’ model was discarded, and a neo-liberal regime foisted upon European regardless. The drive to the east meant that EU widening prevented the type of EU deepening that De Gaulle and Delors had had in mind. But now foreign policy was also to become Americanized. The UK, of course had always been incorrigibly Atlanticist, but it would have been safe to assume that continental powers – particularly France – would be less so. After denouncing the Iraq War – along with Russia and Germany – France now (under a socialist government!) was actually front-running US imperialism (let’s call it what it is) and taking the initiative in regime change operations in Libya, Mali and almost Syria.

Thus, we now have a situation whereby the EU has effectively become the spearhead of US operations of subversion and regime change (in the name of enlargement) in driving east into Europe right up to the Russian frontier. In the case of Romania US missiles have already been installed, and the plan is for a broader deployment throughout Europe. Europe apparently has a neo-con foreign policy to complement its neo-liberal economic policy.

He will soon rematch Sato, the only fighter EVER to knock him out, after FOURTEEN YEARS. Should be interesting – I mean, yeah, both fighters are geriatrics by the standards of the fighting arts, but still, it’s worth watching.

And the Buakawminator is nothing short of a knockout artist, even in his “old age” – he’s only a few years older than me, actually.

    Didact,
    Great Monday collection, as usual.
    This video with the ex-witch about Halloween night is compelling. I am skeptical of these reformed types. But her lack of ‘BELIEVE ME BECAUSE I’M EARNEST’ attitude is captivating, and the repentance that she carries in her regret is truthful. Excellent share.

    “Who is right? Hu knows…”

    In honor of halloween…boooooooo…
