Fascinating response. Let me answer it.
I didn't read transcripts, i watched the vids because the graphs show a lot of stuff u can't pick up in transcripts. I had a very different feeling going through this interview than you had.
I guess you missed the part where Kerry already knows about the wingmaker stuff and said that she found this Ashayana stuff very fresh. If she was "plagiarising" wingmaker materials, I doubt Kerry would have said anything close to that. But that topic is like 5 mins of the over 5+ hours of content - curious that you put so much focus on it lol. I find it amazing how you literally mention the only 2 things (which take up less than 1% of all the content) that has almost nothing to do with the material the interview covers, and found it so quickly. How did you do that? lol
From your response I can see you didn't really go through the interviews at all but looked for "warning signs" instead.
I see just as many warning signs in daniel's material, and I like discussing and debating the things I don't like about it (curiously people stay quiet or avoid it when I ask those questions, not sure why), yet I take it quite seriously, because its good material and it has substance. I could just as easily criticize daniel's papers as you seem to critisize ashanayah's, because the basis you seem to do it on are not based on the merit of the material, but rather superficial stuff: an e-mail by an offended person (from wingmakers), a banner pic on their website, and a single transcript paragraph out of over 5+ hours of interview. Really? I know you better than that djchrismac
Perhaps those buttons needs some pushing so you can get over it
After viewing all 5+ hours of that interview though, I have to say that I feel like everything I've learned up to now about everything before that interview, seemed to just come together like a completed puzzle. To me, that includes the stuff i've read on Antiquatis, on Conscious Hugs, and material in other places I've found very useful. I've had so many synchronicities on a few levels before watching that interview (not just the material content, but many subtler things with it), that when I finished watching it, it felt like so many contradictory things I've learned before just came together perfectly like threads in a tapestry, all part of the picture. A GOOD picture. Not hope-porn, not fear porn. Just a picture that clarifies some sense to things. I'm not going to even go in with how much some of the stuff in the interview resonates with things i've learned on my own (no dogma or prescriptions from anyone else).
Reading up on some critics of her work so far, I'm seeing very little substance against the stuff she does or teaches (guess I have some more critic reading to do then?). The personal experiences of people having gone in depth with the material seems mostly (so far 90% of the people I've read that did go in depth with it) helped by it and what's interesting is that they talk quite well of her character (not just the content). And not in a flattering way, but in very specific, practical ways. I can't explain it, but despite some of the critics claiming to be physics fanatics and not understanding some of the stuff she talks about - i got every single bit she talked about in the interview, almost like it was a review of a course I already took and passed. Yet i've never heard of the majority of the stuff before.
I have never found one chunk of information that could bring so many different experiences I've had together with everything I've learned so far (which at times seemed to be contradictions due to the way I understand those things individually). And do it in a way that makes everything I've learned so far FIT together. Its a bit mind-blowing to me.
How can I speak well of something I've only just encountered and barely investigated? Well, I guess I can't according to conventional investigation methods. But a few months ago I didn't get ESP messages from people on these forums (and confirmed it with them via forum pm, risking looking like a fool in asking them if I was imagining it or not). A few months ago I could not in any way piece together the legitimacy of many things I've learned growing up in church and yet reconcile it with scientific and historic studies that are always criticizing it, while having substance of their own still. One such example is how the bible is written off like a piece of shit fiction, all the while I learned very practical and very useful psionics from it. A few months ago I didn't know what was the difference between the pursuit of real knowledge and raising consciousness. A few months ago I was only interested in a linear way of finding and analyzing information.
I've come to rely on more than flat logic. On more than distilled facts put in very purposeful specific contexts. So much information to go around, and I'm talking about credible information, and yet it has brought me nothing more but a better reference point. Why should I rely on such thinking to discern new material I encounter? Everytime I've done it in the past, it has hindered me - and when I investigated in depth despite my "better judgement" while using such thinking, I've found that I was wrong. And that the material is useful. The only stuff I've found practical, and useful, whether here, or by other sources I've come to trust (by their material, not by their "brand" or lack of "brand"), are the stuff that I can apply personally, in my every day life. Examples? The philosophy of a person. The tools a person uses to create / synthesize the materials they put out. The way they think and the way they show it. The personal experiences they've had. Its the stuff that was never in the head. Its the stuff that was always from the core of that person. The stuff that speaks not language, that writes not words, that paints not pictures. The stuff a person can't fake. That's the stuff that sticks. That changes you. A piece of the person that is always with you in every day life.
Maybe I'm crazy for saying the things I do, reasoning like I do. But I've seen it work. Work magic. And then, understanding the magic. I've seen the fruit of it in people around me. Where I apply what I learn. The fruit is good. I cannot judge how a fool I am or whether I've gained some piece of wisdom. I can only judge the results.
Those results tell me, I have some sense in me, at least. And my sense is telling me, this woman has something useful to say.
There is a difference between scepticism and suspicion. The one brings wisdom, but takes work. The other, doesn't bring either.
Or maybe I'm wrong, and owe you an apology. Maybe I just find the mechanics of energetic configurations more interesting than I do geo-engineering. Perhaps its a question of preference. Yet, to me, it is also a question of principle. I cannot change what others do to the planet, but I can change myself. And I've seen it have more effect on my circumstances (which I thought I had no control over) than my interest had in what others were doing to control or dominate over others. Can anyone blame me for thinking the approach i prefer, to be a more practical approach to contributing to the human race's consciousness then? Perhaps if I was a military intelligence officer working for the U.S. I could've taken a different approach and brought my part better from there? Maybe I would be more accepted and more understood by those who share a goal of helping humanity? Deal with politics everyday, keep my head low, leak some info here and there.
Hmm. Don't think so no. All that drama and what has it done? What difference has all this drama made? All these things that are so visible to us? All the natural disasters, all the conspiracies. And look at us. We even created our own little faction, thinking we know better than everyone else. No one can deny it looking that way when reading these forums. Way before I even learned of any of these conspiracies, whether true or not, I learned of a war waged in the shadows carried on by people as if they are the unwitting vehicles for a machination so dark, that people ridicule even the thought of its existence. Tell me, have you ever tried helping someone escape from a dark occultic group that was asking to be helped? Their life in danger, their family in danger, and not even their dreams are safe? What monsters have you faced, because they can't get to the one you're helping, so they're coming for you in vengeance? Have you ever been so confused in a non-waking state that you had to literally piece together different time-marked memories, as if picking them from shelves, then match it with a compatible cognitive framework, as if picking one from a variety of boxes, in order to wake up a sane person (i.e. not waking up insane)? Have you ever walked up to a stranger and tell them exactly what was going on in their head and their heart that touched them in such a way that it changed their life? How about a guy twice your size in a bar who is of an ethnic group usually badly disposed against your own and might take offence by the sheer difference in culture and values, nevermind beliefs, and nevermind the nerve to walk over and tell him about a life-changing choice he's about to make, and how to make it. From a complete stranger.
Perhaps when you've experienced some of the things I've had, you wouldn't be so quick to write someone off so quick by the way they appear, or by the way others don't like them.
You might rediscover something you've always known but could never remember.
