The mind of Tony Smith

Brainsturbator is back, and first up on the brainfood menu is the mind of Tony Smith:

The first website I ever got lost in belonged to a rambling genius named Tony Smith, a cowboy from Georgia who’s physics theories were too radical for Cornell. That kind of resume will definitely get a high school kid’s attention, and years later, one of the first Brainsturbator articles was a bunch of links to Tony’s site. This is an expanded version, which quotes a lot of the material since the site has disappeared completely several times now.

Joseph the obeah man

I asked Joseph about the services he performs for his clients.

“You name it man. Anything you want done for you I will do it. If you want a visa I have something for that. If you woman leave you I can get her back for you. If you have a court case I will deal with that too,” Joseph pounded his fist into his palm as he spoke and his eyes widened with excitement. He explained that $14,000 will get you a visa to any place in the world you’d like to visit and if the love of your life was silly enough to think she could leave you and go cavorting around town with another, he would get her back for you for a measly $7,000.

I asked Joseph how he got into the white magic business in the first place.

“Well, when I was 15 somebody try work science on me. Dem put a powder in my hymn book at church and it make my head feel like it was going to tear off! I was sick bad. I decide that I wouldn’t want anybody to have that power over me again so I start to read all kind ofbooks. My father was a great science man himself as well so I learn from him and carry on the tradition. I was the only one of his children who carry on the teaching and the work for him,” Joseph said.

The Kabbalistic Tree of Life, Tiferet’s Paths – and God’s Love

“…the ancient Hebrew word for Cannabis is Kaneh-Bosem, also rendered in the traditional Hebrew as Kaneh or Kannabus. In Hebrew the root word kan has a double meaning of Reed or Hemp and Bos translates as Aromatic.” Google “Kaneh Bosem” for insight on this. It’s a few different places in the torah supposedly -makes sense considering the historic value of the plant everywhere else. Here are some quotes from an article that might explain things a bit. (I don’t know who is best qualified to explain things of this nature, I think we all have to do our part to help and mine seems to be to inspire open minded thought.) ”

No, not VALIS. VALS. It used to stand for “Values and Lifestyle System,” but it no longer stands for anything. It’s the primary market segmentation system for market researchers.

Gematriculator determines how good or evil a web site is

The Gematriculator is a service that uses the infallible methods of Gematria developed by Mr. Ivan Panin to determine how good or evil a web site or a text passage is.

Basically, Gematria is searching for different patterns through the text, such as the amount of words beginning with a vowel. If the amount of these matches is divisible by a certain number, such as 7 (which is said to be God’s number), there is an incontestable argument that the Spirit of God is ever present in the text. Another important aspect in gematria are the numerical values of letters: A=1, B=2 … I=9, J=10, K=20 and so on. The Gematriculator uses Finnish alphabet, in which Y is a vowel.

Experts consider the mathematical patterns in the text of the Holy Bible as God’s watermark of authenticity. Thus, the Gematriculator provides only results that are absolutely correct.

Kabbalah Centre expose

Expose on Madonna and Britney Spears’s school of Kabbalah:

The Bergs? luxurious lifestyle, in stark contrast to the bleak four-to-a-bedroom conditions and $35-a-month stipend they offer the full-time volunteers who cook and clean for them.

The bizarre scientific claims made by the Centre?s leaders on behalf of Kabbalah Water, ranging from its ability to cleanse the lakes of Chernobyl of radiation to its power to cure cancer, AIDS, and SARS.

The Bergs have come a long way since 1971, when Philip, then known as Shraga Feivel Gruberger, began preaching his version of Jewish mystical enlightenment to a small group of students in Israel. A onetime insurance salesman who left his wife and seven kids to marry Karen, his former secretary, Berg has become a man so revered that some of his followers believe he has the power to resurrect the dead. In the process he has created a multimillion-dollar brand out of a bastardization of an arcane branch of Judaism, larding it with pricey accessories and bold-faced names. His followers have been promised that Kabbalah can find their lost children, cure their illnesses, replenish their pocketbooks, and bring them true love. Berg himself is so above it all that even his wife refers to him, at least to the press, only by an honorific. He is ?the Rav.?

Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, misc. links

LBRP and Banishing thread on Barbelith, which leads me to:

History of the LBRP’s use in this Kabbalah FAQ:

This particular exercise is derived from the practice of saying the Sh’ma ‘before lying down’ – the ‘kriyat (bedtime) Sh’ma’… The attributes listed in the so-called ‘Qabbalistic Cross’ comes from Psalm 99, verse 5, and are part of the Shachrit (morning) Torah service…. The attributes assigned for the movements are not traditional, and the order has been changed….You might also note that many Jews coming across the LBRP are deeply offended that the liturgy has been so grossly distorted, and is being used (from their perspective) sacreligiously.
