A thetan in control is never a dangerous thing. But an insane beingness does more than just destroy worlds, it entices more beings to follow in order to ensure it's survival. To this day survival remains as a top item.

Good luck R... even though you are all traitors you're probably the lesser of two evils. But, not necessarily.

"gradients of expertise" - "kriyatons" - "fashioning a productive route" - "herding" plus several others. The extent of carefulness has been noted. Like trying to navigate reefs.
All towards exploring the universe, good!! some unexpected places turned up, so there's more, is there not?
In the field of Art, accomplishment is maintained by excellent ability of a TECHNIQUE. By those not in the know, in the modern world, any old new thing has been given the same accolade as for Art (capital a). When put the test however, it will be the Technique in hands of enabler which will pull through all the required new manifestations from same said Artist. Others aware of such, can also uphold such techniques while contributing in any manner of given ways. In its anti matter state or the ephemeral, technique is also required is it not, and there also all manner of techniques in this department too! All to the greater beauty of existence, from any angle of view!!!!

"...technique is also required..." --- nicola
It is, indeed it is... nicola san.
The meaning of Ars (Art) is: Technology/Technique.

is the way to personal power. It is feared by the powers that be who do their best to ignore it. The cult of profit is used to blur the existence of the human spirit. That which is refered to as thetans.

Thanks bee. Nice to see you back on NCN. Must have been busy consulting, eh? And how's the New Civ proj. coming, if I might ask?
17 Apr 2007 @ 23:43 by b : You are welcome vaxen
There is very little interest in the newciv project I proposed here at NCN. In Russia however, it is another matter of great interest. There is an agency of the beauracracy that starts new civilization communities and they write me and publish me.
18 Apr 2007 @ 04:29 by vaxen : Oh...
I've plenty of interest. Ever hear of the Kamchitka load? Still smarting in the Kremlin over that one. I'd bet that GRU would jump at the chance to finance such an endeavor. However, they play rather rough. ;)

really; in the modern sense, technique is a function, when combined with capital A this equals Masters of the art. It is also an art to control the technique sufficiently for precise purpose of expression, that added human something in the modern sense, the Je ne sais pas, lifts it to current day Art. Ncn is current day?
Quick addition here. A Thetan of high Renown is Serge Chemayeff, most famous after Le Corbusier as effecter of Modernism into material form. I attended his first retrospective in Cambridge a few years back with the first publication of his biog. The exhibition featured one drawing of a huge figure of 8, representing his thought processes. This translates into the all important Denouement of Aristotles theory of Art and Poetry - Why Beauty, How Beauty - the Denouement is the moment the Hero of the Epic or Tragedy starts to turn the first half of his life to useful transcedence, so for Chemayeff, he rescues the mundane building type, into the Transcedent, by sheer artistry of sublime human realisation. This in comparison to Technique, CANNOT BE TAUGHT, it is genius and just happens at the right time and place. This Capital A Art. Here is the link; for another hero of Modernity, who is still awaiting full understanding.

Hi nicola. No, I don't think that NCN is current at all. A bit 'old hat' if you will. Charming but ineffective. Perhaps the New Civilization Game died with Captain Bill and Scientology? Even deception has been called 'an Art.' But the latin word really means techno-logy (Gk. Teknos + Logia) and in that sense... tech-nique. The application to the life stream of that which you have learned and experienced.
18 Apr 2007 @ 22:42 by vaxen : Art & Poetry
c.1225, "skill as a result of learning or practice," from O.Fr. art, from L. artem, (nom. ars) "art, skill, craft," from PIE *ar-ti- (cf. Skt. rtih "manner, mode;" Gk. arti "just," artios "complete;" Armenian arnam "make," Ger. art "manner, mode"), from base *ar- "fit together, join" (see arm (1)). In M.E. usually with sense of "skill in scholarship and learning" (c.1305), especially in the seven sciences, or liberal arts (divided into the trivium -- grammar, logic, rhetoric -- and the quadrivium --arithmetic, geometry, music, astronomy). This sense remains in Bachelor of Arts, etc. Meaning "human workmanship" (as opposed to nature) is from 1386. Sense of "cunning and trickery" first attested c.1600. Meaning "skill in creative arts" is first recorded 1620; esp. of painting, sculpture, etc., from 1668. Broader sense of the word remains in artless (1589). As an adj. meaning "produced with conscious artistry (as opposed to popular or folk) it is attested from 1890, possibly from infl. of Ger. kunstlied "art song" (cf. art film, 1960; art rock, c.1970). Fine arts, "those which appeal to the mind and the imagination" first recorded 1767. Art brut "art done by prisoners, lunatics, etc.," is 1955, from Fr., lit. "raw art." Artsy "pretentiously artistic" is from 1902. Expression art for art's sake (1836) translates Fr. l'art pour l'art. First record of art critic is from 1865. Arts and crafts "decorative design and handcraft" first attested in the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, founded in London, 1888.
"Supreme art is a traditional statement of certain heroic and religious truths, passed on from age to age, modified by individual genius, but never abandoned. The revolt of individualism came because the tradition had become degraded, or rather because a spurious copy had been accepted in its stead." [William Butler Yeats]

Ever read Moses Maimonides "Morei Le Nebukiim (Guide for the Perplexed)?"
Refutation of Aristotelianism... and beautifully, at that! Needed to keep the Jewish Faithful in line, you know, as many were going over to the side of Aristotle. Worth a perusal.

!! Slightly ever so compromised the classical side by offering up this perfectly protestant and faultless chrono span for art. Thank you, but dear friend, I see now that my interpretation of Technique via architecture, and the Greek side of things, is more related to the spiritual component passed down through long study of Greek works. These were highly renowned by the Latins, as I am sure you know, and try as the Latins did, they could only copy the Greeks or at best do a good translation putting in extra bits they did not understand, and changing and names of all the deities. This like their architecture (all apart from the Arch) with less inspiration, much less, not wholly integral, renders their poetry, and artefacts, more into the Functionary realm of things (just doing the job, not raising it upon the heights of Olymp). Just because they decorated their cooking stoves and pot handles with lions feet and goats horns repectively and quite nice, to give a good classical feel to their metal work etc, does not constitute the same level of achievement in all the Arts in Classical Greece. What is more, the English language has concentrated its understanding of the Classical within the Latin framework, even when talking about things Greek. So my understanding of the word technique/art is in the Greek camp. The latins relied on Technique to do the stuff, with less personal input (not Vaxen AT all). So while your expose is absolutely correct in the chrono aspect, word for word, there are 2 problems raised here re my interpretation and your application.
The excellent quote of Yeats above, (wow), is closer to the Greek and carries the inspiration of the greek through in his own departure point, one very much feels. The english do so love to confound! What are they avoiding? are they trying to keep themselves out of the discussion, leaving it just as an idea, so they can go home to cucumber sandwiches like Pilate? also not Vax!
You know, even Aristotle was breaking with the faith, by trying to dissect the beauty of poetry and the astounding attraction of the epic form of playwriting in his famous treatise. The beauty does defy dissection because, it lies within the spirit, and is a component. Actors even, can reinstate this spirit into Greek writers plays, I have seen it many times, being taken quite outside of oneself and brought into the action, outside of Time. So now we get to a form of magic, which because many people can experience simultaneously, and talk of it afterwards, for thousands of years, means it must exist?

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.
--- Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his essay “Self-Reliance”

- quite audible; however reading on, Aristotle did not enjoy Poetry, yet his treatise, how obtuse can one be? One here modesty blazing and the other desecration by di section!
