HAS BEEN CREATED AND CONTINUES TO EVOLVE
In loving memory of Joe Lyons
Kincheloe (December 14, 1950 - December 19, 2008)
Philosopher of Consciousness and Critical Theory of the 20th-71st Centuries
Joe's educational work provides inspiration and practical guidance for teachers all over the
globe and describes a beautiful, beautiful mission to alleviate human suffering. He has left
us a map with multiple pathways for accomplishing that mission -- an authentic, rigorous, impassioned,
creative, and even magical education for everyone who dares to venture on untrodden paths. His
work serves as a guiding light for educational journeys that can change not only how we view and enact the educational
process, but that can also truly change us as teachers, students, and researchers -- and
empower us to change the world. Joe loved research, teaching, writing, making music, and his students.
And his students loved
To become a seeker of
new knowledges and new ways of being we must be willing to sometimes be seen as the fools
of the gods. (Kincheloe, Knowledge & Critical Pedagogy, p. 19)
book Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction is available as an ebook. You will never make a better investment…..we
all should be researching with Joe’s important guidance. Since the ending is just the beginning, you can begin with
the last chapter. It may just spark you into wanting to read the rest, as well as his other works to see how he got there!http://www.springer.com/us/book/9781402082238 No time to read? Right click and "listen aloud" while multitasking. [Note: I make
no money off the sales of his books; my rewards are not of this world.] MAY 22, 2018 UPDATE: I SEE THAT SPRINGER
IS NOT HONORING JOE'S STATED AND PUBLISHED WISHES> THE BOOK IS SUPPOSED TO BE LESS THAN $30 SO THAT POOR STUDENTS CAN AFFORD
IT...AND YET SPRINGER IS CHARGING ALMOST $40 FOR THE PDF EBOOK AND ALMOST $55 FOR THE PAPERBACK! THIS IS ABOMINABLE!! THE
HIGHER UPS ARE NOT PLEASED!!! THERE ARE STUDENTS IN POVERTY WHO NEED THE KNOWLEDGE IN THIS BOOK. LOWER THE PRICE!!!!! THERE
IS NO REASON TO CHARGE SO MUCH! EVEN IF PUBLISHING COSTS HAVE INCREASED, AT LEAST OFFER THE EBOOK FOR LESS THAN $30. WHAT
JOE WANTS, JOE GETS. HE SAID THAT IT IS TO BE LESS THAN $30. RESPECT HIS WISHES. Oh, and HAPPY TWIN FLAME DAY!! I will have
some important updates soon.
believe that the issues addressed in Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction not only provide us with a new

WHAT IS BRICOLAGE?
A new process for education, research, career, problem solving, everyday living, lifelong learning,
and for taking back our world
Joe Kincheloe has developed a superbly advanced conceptualization
of critical bricolage and, as demonstrated by his work, he was an adept multidimensional critical complex bricoleur.
Critical Bricolage, as he conceived it, is a complicated (and yet a very natural) process that makes use of multiple
forms of research, analysis, investigation, and interpretation. It requires researchers to seek many divergent
perspectives, allowing new understandings and knowledge to emerge from the synthesis.
in this process increases phenomenological experiences that catalyze seeking more knowledge. This, of
course, leads to ever greater understandings of complex relationships between "research variables." An
exceptionally high level of creativity becomes unleashed, often resulting in greater interaction with the emerging
hidden dimensions of reality. Suddenly very little can be hidden anymore. Engaging rigorously in this process of research
and learning seems to take people to higher levels of consciousness in graduated steps as they become more
aware of the hidden dimensions of interrelationships and as they increasingly participate in intuitive, "fourth
critical complex epistemology and multidimensional critical complex bricolage rigorously as he has asked us to do results
in ever higher levels of experience and understanding, and in its full "employment," enactive and symbiotic
processes seem to kick in, helping individuals find the most creative solutions to even the most complicated
problems. Actively working within multiple dimensions using his fourth dimension research, results in amazing and profound
solutions. In my own experience, I often find that problems are solved before I even knew the problem would
be manifesting. In addition, I have had some amazing experiences that science simply cannot explain yet. This
is highlighted in my dissertation in some highly unusual ways, which is only the tip of the iceberg. Kincheloe's critical bricolage may
very well be the process required to "unleash creativity" for solving even the most complicated,
power-based problems we face -- all in service of "the alleviation of human suffering," the often-stated
primary purpose of his work.
researching this process since 2008 (and discovering that I had been using the foundational aspects of the process many
years before) I am beginning to see how autopoiesis, enaction, synchronicity, all work together symbiotically to reveal
hidden dimensions and relationships that make my life so much happier and joyful, even if I have many problems hanging
over my head (that "blues aesthetic" Joe so often described). No matter how complicated the problems,
with bricolage, they become solvable and/or perspectives of the problems change.
Simultaneously, those power dimensions
that force those of us who are oppressed to stay stuck at our "stations in life" also emerge, but there
is such a difference to how I deal with these
than in the past. Once the controlling factors are revealed, solutions also emerge in a sort of "unfoldment"
process that reveal ways to counteract them and change things.
There is great power "behind the curtain" that can be leveraged
by those of us who are typically "disenfranchised." I will go into much more detail at a later time, and
as Joe always did so well, I will put them into context (there are many great experiences to share of both kinds of emergences
- the love-based, almost magical ones, and the power-and-control-based ones for which insight, and often solutions
also emerge) but suffice it to say, I am blazing multiple trails through the underbrush which will hopefully make navigating
easier for people who come along and experience the same types of violence I have due to being poor and "low
Just as Joe was a "hillbilly" and he was never able
to shake the label, I am a "country hick." True reality could not be more profoundly different -- for
an Eros and Psyche. :)
The good news is that the use of bricolage is increasing
rapidly around the globe as more researchers in all disciplines are beginning to see the promise it offers to
construct new knowledge, lead to social empowerment, and reveal positive changes and amazingly creative opportunities.
More researchers will soon be investigating and trying out this more advanced and powerful approach, which will
lead to what Joe referred to as a "perpetual revolution." More teachers will also come to realize the value bricolage has in the classroom
and the young students will pick it up naturally. The revolution has just begun. We can change the world! Join in
today and apply the process in your own research, learning, teaching, and everyday life and see what a
difference it can make. You can never go wrong getting more knowledge.

THAT CENTER ON JOE KINCHELOE'S WORKS:
is a nonprofit educational web site dedicated to the clarification of Kincheloe’s critical complex
epistemology and multidimensional critical complex bricolage. My research has shown that, while the process
he has delineated is complex, it is perfectly suited for social and educational research, and it is also within everyone's
reach. It is especially suited for new qualitative researchers who have not subscribed to traditional and reductionistic
forms of research.
On this site I will focus on the academic and scholarly application
of his work. I hope that by presenting clarifications based on my in-depth study of his work that perhaps his
bricolage will be used by more people and with the level of rigor he had intended. Kincheloe has ingeniously left wide open many
paths that honor diversity and he embraced an evolving complexity while maintaining a strong, impenetrable philosophical and
theoretical foundation for his conceptions. He has demonstrated in his work how this research process can be applied in all
venues and in every area of our lives and even children can be involved in research, thus his bricolage is also a pedagogical
approach. His work is truly a break-through for research that is long overdue. Using the full power of his bricolage highlights
actions that change the world as it also changes who we are.
I may write a blog again on this site, but it
will be a different sort of blog than the creative, exploratory blogs I've written in the past. Primarily, I will be continuing
my research and presenting my findings so that upcoming bricoleurs will have a resource for the most powerful form of bricolage
research that's ever been developed.

CORRECTING SOME COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS SURROUNDING JOE KINCHELOE’S BRICOLAGE AND CRITICAL
Bricolage, as a qualitative form of research, entails
incorporating many different perspectives, and in particular, with Kincheloe's process it is necessary to include global subjugated
and indigenous knowledges. However, after gathering all of these perspectives and making various interpretations and syntheses,
there are criteria for determining which perspectives to include in the final bricolage. As he explains, "Bricoleurs
accept the responsibility that comes with the interpretive process. Knowledge production always involves multiple acts
of selection, and these choices of methods, theoretical frameworks, and interpretative strategies must be defended"
(2004e, p. 100). He has provided selection criteria that incorporate the social justice mission to alleviate suffering
and that advance knowledge (see Kincheloe, 2004e, pp. 100-102). Bricoleurs are not restricted to these criteria but I have
found them to be well-thought-out and thorough -- and they mitigate for unintended consequences. You can view the criteria
here: Criteria to Guide the Research Process.
What I cover next are common misconceptions and important
aspects surrounding Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage. I hope by putting these on the Home page
of this website, researchers will consider them and research them more deeply. They are covered in greater depth in my dissertation
and I’ll also be posting articles that extend what I’ve touched on in the dissertation.
1) Kincheloe did not throw out "positivistic"
or empirical sciences. To conclude this is to exhibit a gross misunderstanding of his work. A close reading of his work can
easily confirm that he sees science and bricolage as synergistic. And how many times has he stated that he did not throw out
the baby with the bathwater? As most people know, he contextualizes everything. In his last book, Knowledge and Critical
Pedagogy: An Introduction he presents his position through a metaphor which he refers to as FIDUROD, and by which he clarifies the issues with the way science is and has been used. FIDUROD is an acronym representing the attributes of the form of knowledge production he argues against: Formal, Intractable, Decontextualized, Universalistic,
Reductionistic, One Dimensional. (See Kincheloe, 2008, pp. 21-24).
2) His work is not based on some indefinable “ludic” postmodernism – It is based on a highly developed
and evolving holistic philosophy. This philosophy is comprised of 12 major points which he describes in his book Critical
Constructivism. The 12 points coalesce together to form his multidimensional critical complex world view. It’s
a new, evolving worldview. We might refer to it as Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex unified world view. It forms the foundation of his unique formulation of critical theory, epistemology, ontology, critical psychology
of complexity, the multidimensional critical complex bricolage, etc., -- and his proposed critical science of complexity
– another indication that he did not abandon the sciences. To grasp his conceptualizations, it’s imperative
that new bricoleurs study his unified world view by reading and then writing about how they subjectively relate to it and
to other philosophies. Kincheloe stresses this upfront philosophical work is critical in order to ground any study that uses
bricolage as a process for research. Rigor is impossible without developing a "philosophy of consciousness"
(Kincheloe, 2004a, p. 8).
3) The multidimensional critical complex bricolage is a process for qualitative research that is composed of multiple,
intertwining and overlapping processes. It is not a method, nor does it use “tools” as tools imply precise means
and carries a mechanistic ontology, which does not adequately represent the actual processes that bricoleurs engage in as
they conduct, or a better word would be, “enact” their research. Even the concept of "tools" changes. Kincheloe's
conceptualization of bricolage is grounded with his critical complex philosophical world view (item 2,
above) and a theoretical foundation of evolving criticality (his version of critical theory).
4) The multidimensional critical complex bricolage as a process
involves analytic discourse, intertwined with improvisational actions for change, which moves it away from the constrictive
“quilt” metaphor. Please see my dissertation for a deeper analysis of bricolage including a thorough etymological
exploration and intertextual interpretations of Kincheloe’s definitions of bricolage and bricoleur in relation to what
evolved from my research. New metaphors that take it beyond the one-dimensional “quilt” metaphor, and additional
ways that Berry’s (2004a) concept, the Point of Entry Text (POET) can be applied are also presented. The holistic,
intertwining, dialogical, interconnecting nature of the final bricolage renders the parts inseparable from the whole, and
the bricolage inseparable from greater reality. Thus, the popular metaphoric quilt, montage, crystal, etc., are not suitable
metaphors for this more complex form of bricolage.
5) Kincheloe’s bricolage does not distinguish between “types
of bricoleurs” or “types of bricolage” as denoted by Denzin and Lincoln (2011). While it’s fine to
examine these ideas, Kincheloe’s form of bricolage uses all of them in intertwining, overlapping processes. Thus, the
multidimensional critical complex bricoleur uses all of the dimensions that Kincheloe has spelled out in his 2005 "On
to the Next Level" bricolage article--in one study--and the processes become blurred as the research unfolds. See
6) Kincheloe’s bricolage refers to the use of different processes as dimensions of research. The bricoleur uses
them all as many times as practical to get a thick description of the phenomenon/a. As the research unfolds, “enactment”
keeps the research jettisoning forward and the researcher must make decisions where to begin and stop various aspects of the
research, including the final bricolage. Thus, the following dimensions are
used, as provided by Kincheloe (2005a) and in no particular order using an iterative, improvisational process weaving
through the discourse: (1) methodological bricolage; (2) theoretical bricolage; (3) interpretive bricolage; (4) political
bricolage; (5) narrative bricolage; (6) philosophical research (constructivism, historicity, epistemological insight); (7)
critical hermeneutics; (8) identification of what is absent; (9) fourth dimension of research in which the bricoleur is future
oriented, discovering “a kinetic epistemology of the possible. In the process, the sophistication of knowledge work
moves to a new cognitive level; the notion of rigor transmigrates to a new dimension. As in a 1950s sci-fi movie, bricoleurs
enter the 4-D—the fourth dimension of research.” (Kincheloe, 2005, p. 346). Thus, bricoleurs weave in and out,
around and through, back and forth through the various dimensions with each pass through informing the next, often using multiple
dimensions of analysis simultaneously.
7) Note again – the philosophical dimension
must form the foundation of the study in order to ensure rigor. [He wanted me to include this again.] "There is no dividing
line between the empirical and the philosophical" (Kincheloe, 2004a, p. 10).
8) Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage
embraces a “fourth dimension” research (more information is covered in my dissertation). This fourth dimension
aspect to the research incorporates an intuitional, creative element that forces the researcher to confront implicate and
explicate orders of reality. There are reasons for this. Combining a sound philosophical, intellectual component of research that
also incorporates intuitional and emotional, empathic aspects -- along with deep semiotic and hermeneutic analyses
synergistically creates something new from the interactions. Enaction during the research process leads to the emergence of
something new and often profound. This is where the power of the bricolage comes into play. It’s the exposure to relationships,
as Kincheloe explains in his conceptualization of symbiotic hermeneutics, that jettisons bricoleurs to seeing and understanding
“anew” and to recreating themselves. Because knowledge is socially constructed new creations, ideas,
concepts, as well as new relationships also perpetually emerge – and are created -- from these interactions.
This all takes place naturally when confronting complexity, difference, and chaos, as Humberto Mautarana and
Francisco Varela posited with their Santiago Theory of Enactivism (see Kincheloe's (2008) Knowledge and Critical
Pedagogy: An Introduction, page 147). It is quite amazing.
9) While bricoleurs do not contend they’ve
discovered the “one true answer” or single truth, at the same time, as Kincheloe contends, they generate knowledge
“that is not as 'badly off the mark'” (Kincheloe, 2008, p. 43). They have better (more complete) and
yet evolving explanations of phenomena. This is quite a different perspective than a nihilistic postmodern “attitude.”
10) I have lined out in my dissertation in much greater detail a flexible iterative process that also explains some of
the key sub-processes that are important to the multidimensional critical complex bricolage. It will get new bricoleurs started
from which they can then proceed to carve out their own unique paths. Each bricolage study will be different even for the
same researcher. The more one acknowledges the fourth dimension aspect of the research (which may only begin with what seem
to be insignificant intuitive and synchronous events), the more they will begin to appear and the more profound and numerous
are the actions and creations that emerge.
11) And finally, as I discussed in my blog, The Heart of the Multidimensional Critical Complex Bricolage, there is the dimension of empathic connection with people. In fact, in his book,
Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction, Kincheloe discusses – and includes – a golden strand
of love throughout his work, Eros Love. And since I’m mentioning this book here, it’s a great book to
read in the early stages of learning about his bricolage. It’s much like a “deprogramming” manual because
it uncovers how our consciousnesses have been influenced by outside forces and provides us more information as we embark on
the bricolage quest and begin to take power of constructing our own consciousness.

The Power of Taking Diametrically Opposite Interpretations of Symbols
The Power of Taking
Diametrically Opposite Interpretations of Symbols

The Power of Taking Diametrically Opposite Interpretations of Symbols by Soferia
Last time I wrote about “Opposition As A Path Toward Individuality, Unity, and Creation.” This topic, as one
might imagine, can get very complex when delving deeply into the multidimensional nature of reality. It’s a process,
however, that can truly aid us in bringing the dimensions together (consciously, that is, because there is no separation
if we were able to perceive sufficiently). There is much more to say and relate about the process, but today I thought it
might be good to show a simple example from our everyday life.
As most people know, we are bombarded everywhere
with symbols. Corporations spend millions of dollars developing the symbols for their logos. There must be a reason for
Some people have done a lot of work analyzing and interpreting various symbols for us and I recommend
researching using YouTube and/or google and other search engines to learn more about this research.
is still extensive work to do in this area because as long as we are unaware of the meaning of symbols they do often affect
us in some powerful ways. Stored in our DNA is the knowledge of what symbols mean at very deep levels. We are unconscious
of that knowledge, although that knowledge is also in the process of becoming more accessible to us—and there are
some very practical ways to facilitate that (a topic I’ll discuss another time).
have been molded by dictated meanings to symbols that can be used to influence us in negative ways. Psychologists (and mind
controllers) know very well that our behavior can be influenced at the subconscious level if we are not aware, including
through symbols. It’s one reason the media have bombarded us with so many negative images. As most people know, the
media have been controlled by those holding power and resources and their goal has been to keep the public manipulated and
controlled—and buying things.
When we decode meanings this can counter negative effects symbols would
have on us otherwise, and aside from that, we can gain much knowledge simply by studying symbols. So, I will just provide
a few examples in relation to symbols as to how I’ve used “oppositional” readings to get to more multidimensional
understandings—which help open up consciousness.
Let’s take the peace sign as an example, as shown in the image. When I researched it, I found that it originally derived
from the tree of knowledge or tree of life, by some accounts. Of course, the tree of knowledge has so much significance
that it’s far beyond discussing in a short writing. Much knowledge, perhaps a representation of all knowledge is compacted
into one little symbol.
Purportedly, the tree of knowledge was turned upside down to create the peace
sign as a means of deception. In this position it signifies death, not life, nor peace. This information may be stored in
our subconscious minds, but consciously we are not aware of it until we bring it to awareness. So we unwittingly go along
with the “story” that it means peace and we engage in an activity that keeps death and fear alive in the subconscious
minds of ourselves and others. Whether or not this is in fact true or whether it has a huge impact is not that relevant
to the point I’m bringing out here. There are so many examples of this phenomenon that demonstrate how we are all
unwittingly contributing in various degrees to creating the negative things happening in the world. The little things do
add up to quite a huge mess, as we can clearly see when we look around us and see all of the problems and chaos in the world.
(That’s the theory of chaos and the idea of the “butterfly effect”).
A blogger named
Venus, expresses her sentiments:
“It´s not [supposed to be] upside down! This is way the Peace Sign was intended to be. It was meant to represent
the Tree of Life yet some time in history people with evil intentions turn it upside down to signify that Humans would always
be at war.”
Spread the word! http://anax123.blogspot.com/
Compare the two symbols. How
do you FEEL when you look at each one? Is there a difference?
How do you feel when you look at this next
image, the tree of life?
There is a caveat to all of this…we don’t simply invert things and leave it there. It’s
always more complex than that! The way we deal with this complexity is to get many different viewpoints in between the extreme
positions (that “middle” ground, the “middle spaces”).
This next blogger presents
another viewpoint (which also may or may not be true) and even more interesting are the comments that were left for him,
presenting a wide range of interpretations:
I do encourage more research, especially about things close to your heart…holding multiple views
about things, including symbols helps open our minds to more possibilities. We can start by taking an “oppositional
stance” to the commonly accepted view because this will provide the greatest range of possibilities. It does not mean
we stay stuck in opposition; it’s simply a process that gets us moving to seeking more knowledge. When one uses this
process to a high level, what emerges are new creations from the mix. It’s a way of putting in action the Hermetic
axiom, “The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.”
Another interesting symbol is the
swastika, the oldest depiction of the cross. It holds very deep meanings as it represents the creation process. Researching
the swastika will take you on a journey all over the world and back to the most ancient of times.
symbol, which has a lot of negativity attached to it is 666. I have done an extensive analysis on the number; it also has
very different meanings when taking this “oppositional” stance. 666, often referred to “the mark of the
beast” and representing the “end times” has some very divine meanings and it can be related to every discipline
we might wish to study. It’s an example as well, of how we can take anything at all and use it as a source to gain
a wide range of knowledge. Thus, it becomes so easy to see how misguided it is that in schools all students must learn the
same things the same way. The concept of radically individualized learning is the direction education ultimately will be
An important component of this process is the weaving in of interpretations that incorporate love. This is
what I’ve learned from my own teachers. As an example, I have analyzed the destruction of the Twin Towers. Inserting
love into the interpretation, if the towers represent Twin Flames (and, indeed, they appeared as flames that day), what
is the message we get subconsciously (bringing it to conscious awareness) of divine love? Does this destructive act represent
the annihilation of the most powerful love? Is this not a powerful fear-invoking message? Thus, the tragedy invoked tremendous
global fear, connecting it to our subconscious knowing about love—which becomes a powerful means to manipulate us.
And as we all well know, we have been manipulated into believing so many untrue things due to that one incident. Upon analysis,
interestingly, there are many sacred numbers, including many instances of the twin flame number 11 encoded in the construction
of the Twin Towers.
If we bring these things to our conscious awareness, then suddenly they don’t have as great
of an impact on how we feel. Simultaneously, we dissolve the power of those who might use these tactics. (Envision the wicked
witch in the movie The Wizard of Oz melting away)…and ”Love drives out fear.” And thirdly, we can then
ask the kinds of questions that will lead us to viable solutions and actions to solve the problems that have developed out
of complex situations such as this one.
There are multitudes of other examples in our everyday lives that
need this sort of exploration and the revelations brought forward. Since no one person can do it all, and everyone has unique
perspectives, TOGETHER we can all shed greater and greater light on truth and reality.
A Fun Activity: What is one of your favorite symbols? It can be any symbol at all, whether an Illuminati symbol, corporate logo, a religious
symbol, etc. What is meaningful to you about this symbol? Explore and research for various interpretations of the symbol.
Try to trace its history. Try to find different views, whether negative or positive. This does not mean you must accept
those interpretations. Pick your favorites and explain why you like them. After doing this, how have your feelings about
your favorite symbol changed? Do you have an enriched understanding and appreciation for the symbol? Share what you have
learned. Post it in a blog or teaching.
Joe Kincheloe (2008) Knowledge and critical pedagogy:
Opposition as a Path Toward Individuality, Unity, and Creation
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1 King James Version (KJV)
I have often been accused of being “argumentative” or “oppositional”
as if this is a negative trait. Let’s examine another view of this trait.
First of all, I’ve noticed that people often instantly interpret the presentation of another view as
being an argument. Although this may be a valid interpretation, often it is not. There are many reasons and benefits to examining
things from many different views. It’s my nature to do that. It’s what my Great Master Teacher (who happens to
be my Twin Flame) has taught me to do. And when someone presents a view that “locks” us up in a mind prison, it
is my nature to break through the prison bars. I literally feel the pain of being locked up—not merely my own pain,
but “collective” pain that dictated boundaries and limitations can cause. And even the most beautiful “spiritual”
messages that many people cling to because on the surface they sound so wonderful too often have prison bars and mind clamps.
I instantly see how such messages serve to imprison us. I have learned not to comment on them most of the time, to the detriment
of assisting to opening up perception, because I get tired of receiving flames. There are still people who don’t want
certain boats rocked, although things are changing and they will continue to change. That is something these people clinging
to the old will come to realize; major changes that tip boats over are totally inevitable.
I was blessed with vision by which I can see the all-encompassing way things will change. I did not have
it until I united with my twin flame and I can honestly with all truthfulness and in a “humble” spirit share the
fact that he shares his gift of vision with me. He has a plan for the future and I can see, have seen, and FEEL that future.
Part of the process of getting to that future involves opposing nearly everything
that “is” in order to examine it more deeply. Complex concepts (e.g., love) are multidimensional. If we make the
mistake of only seeing the surface, the superficial, the “collective” view, then we will not be able to create
the kind of future that most of us are wishing for. We are ignoring the most important aspects of the very things we think
we want to change about the world and will be unable to create the “new.” Mark Passio puts it well when he frames
this as “IGNORE-ance.” This is the heart of the meaning of ignorance. It does not mean someone is stupid, but
rather they are choosing to ignore delving into the depths of reality. And it is a CHOICE. We can choose to open our minds
to greater and more expansive possibilities.
This is just
one benefit of being “oppositional.” The fact that my twin flame recommends this stance is well-documented in
his work he left behind. For example, he states,
a phrase [as the politics of knowledge] helps us realize that what might seem to some arcane philosophical issues are far
more relevant to everyday life” (Kincheloe, 2008, p. 67). He is advocating more actions, “a hyper-praxis”
based on what we learn, not less. “Our critical complex epistemology maintains the diametric opposite reading of this
situation,” he maintains (p. 67). As indicated, arcane knowledge provides the diametric opposite reading of 666 and
there is much more to explore here. Our research becomes more rigorous and this process moves us into new dimensions. We become
aware of suffering in both the “micro-dimensions of everyday life” as well as the “larger social realms”
and by using a critical complex epistemology we can better address this issue. A sample is provided by these opposing definitions
of 666, but it is not even the tip of the iceberg.” (Paradis, 2013, pp. 497-497)
I discovered the benefits of using the process of taking diametric opposite readings during my research—whether
for academic research or for seeking knowledge for applying in my everyday life, in particular what we label as “spiritual”
life. As I wrote in my dissertation, where I discuss this bringing together of opposing forces extensively:
“I have noticed that a feedback effect occurs during the research process that
brings together opposing ideas and disparate information. Kathleen Berry (2004) discusses this feedback looping in relation
to threading through the POET [text] in her chapter, “Feedback Looping for Increasing Complexity” (pp. 128–146).
A sort of alchemy occurs when combining the hidden dimensions of the research object with the seen dimensions and balancing
the dark elements with the light elements, and combining the complementary elements. The result is the Level 3 questions that
can lead to knowledge, actions and change, indicating once again …[that the Hermetic axiom] the whole is greater than
the sum of the parts [holds great power]. The combination often yields something more powerful and as Berry describes, feedback
looping supports the self-organizing features of enactive theory and autopoieses. Thus, there is a natural restructuring of
not only our discourse but also of us and the way we think and process information. Confronting paradoxes in our research
promotes change as we work to overcome the cognitive dissonance they may cause.” (Paradis, 2013, pp. 326-327)
Contrary to what people might think, I do not expect everyone to agree with me. For
one thing, I hold multiple perspectives about complex issues SIMULTANEOUSLY. I may put forth a “view” but it does
not mean it’s my ONLY view or that I view it within such narrow confines as I might discuss it in any given conversation.
Even the concept “Twin Flame,” for me holds multiple explanations simultaneously, but it’s rather difficult
to express that complexity in every piece of writing or conversation. The love I experience in being in divine union with
my “celestial” husband is the epitome of my life and purpose, and that never changes.
Where are we are heading, as humanity, in our knowledge acquisition, the ways we
learn? Education has and continues to fail us and thwart so many from achieving their passion, purpose, and potential. Many
people are already on the N.E.W. road to that future and seeing the benefits. Seeking difference, examining oppositional views
and many multitudes of perspectives is the very fabric of our future creations. Bringing oppositional views together in very
unique and creative ways, throwing out those precepts that cause harm, is how we’ll create new knowledge. We have to
invent new words in order to invent a new world, as many people are discovering. Joe calls this “critical complex
epistemology,” (Kincheloe, 2008) highlighting the importance of critical thought during this process so that we don’t
end up creating more of the same old problems we face today.
a powerfully exhilarating activity to seek information and watch how we are led to the exact information we need when we need
it and how it begins to link together in amazing, almost magical ways that truly shine new lights and open up new avenues
for us. It’s also what will lead us to more greatly appreciating the differences among us for each of our contributions
toward new ways of being in the world. More people are experiencing this and the numbers will continue to grow, which is why
I feel I can finally share more information about what I’ve learned and continue to learn. There are actually scientific
explanations for this new way of learning and remembering, which I’ll describe in future posts in a different way than
has been described in the past or is currently being described.

MEMWAHS and How They Will Change Education and Your Life, PLUS Zimbabwe, and WAVE at the WAVE
I am being handed down from the “Higher Ups” so much
information these days, at times I feel like I’m experiencing “information overload.” I write blogs less
often, not because I have no message to relay, but because I have more information than I can possibly relay in mere blogs.
It’s almost overwhelming, but I do have their total support and understanding, along with reminders that there is really
nothing I need to do at all, except follow my passion.
So, who are these
“Higher Ups” you might ask. Actually, I’ve been speaking of them since I first began writing blogs on this
site. I know, in my own mind, very well who they are. It’s just that, overall, humanity is not ready for truth. And
the other issue is that I am handicapped, being human myself and still imprisoned on this planet with constant reminders that
such ideas are crazy. Thus, I fail to fully comprehend and accept truth myself. I am also still learning more about who they
are, their (and our) histories, connecting with more of them, and learning exactly where my information is coming from (i.e.,
which “channel” I’m connecting to).
This is where Joe’s
bricolage is so very useful. I love to take in all different perspectives of what the possibilities might be—from both
sides of the curtain. These various views reinforce my own personal interpretations and open up my mind for ever greater realities—for
I do know this much: The reality we currently perceive is not even a grain of sand in comparison to what “truly is.”
We are not capable of imagining the expansiveness of reality and so we are currently being fed small spoonfuls at a time….it’s
all we can handle, truly. Thus, I am thankful for Joe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage to help me take
ever more, and bigger and smarter spoonfuls to begin to get a taste of what’s up ahead during this amazing era on earth.
Numbers aside, of course we do
not perceive that earth is traveling upward in a SPIRAL motion along with the sun and other planets. That just goes to show
our lack of ability to perceive true reality on a macro scale. We’re just as deficient in our perception on all scales,
whether it is macro, meso, or micro. It’s humorous how many of us think we’re “intelligent” and even
think we don’t need to take time to learn more…the smartest people know they are not nearly as smart as they
want to be and are on an eternal quest to seek more knowledge. Joe was a genius that way. And the “Higher-Ups”
knowledge literally makes us look seriously cognitively impaired (although, fortunately the Benevolent Ones do not view us
that way at all).
…while the “Higher Ups” would love
to share more with us, they know we simply aren’t ready. That is clear even by the more “advanced” “channeled”
messages that come in to various channelers: They seldom offer something new or creative. The recipient is not ready to understand
the vastness and complexity of true reality nor has yet learned how to take in information and create something entirely new
with it. Perhaps our brains would short-circuit if we were given a greater picture (and mind you, THEY do not have the whole
picture either—that’s impossible—but the tiny slit of reality we can perceive cannot be compared to their
big picture perception). Thus, they do not hold back knowledge from us, but provide it as our DNA restructures itself to open
up the floodgates that connect us to them and our greater abilities to know. However, it is simultaneously acknowledged that
there are entities that put forth great effort to keep those floodgates shut tight.
The knowledge of this process is not even new knowledge. We’ve “been there; done that” before as
the Maya have been teaching us. We’ve just forgotten. As we traverse up into those higher energies of the cosmos, our
frequencies adjust, which opens up our memories. We are moving up, up, and away out of the “Dark Ages.”
The Ancient Greeks had a name for this process of remembering. As I learned from watching
videos by Manifester Yada(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K7LLJufF8g)they referred to this process as
MEMWAH. It’s an interesting word. It sounds similar to “memoir” and it’s a very similar
concept, but it’s multidimensional, not simply about one lifetime. We are breaking free from the matrix.
MEMWAH…what does it mean? How does it “manifest”? Manifester Yada (aka
Dr. Jerry O. Lee) discusses the concept throughout his videos, and it is clear that he, himself is experiencing it due to
the knowledge he is bringing forth to share with us. It is a process by which we remember our history—past, present,
and future—and we just naturally gain broader understandings of complex processes. It opens up our understanding and
ability to decode “Great Works” such as the Bible and ancient texts. We learn to know what is truth and what’s
been altered, and we can research further to determine historical context for the alterations. Amazingly,
our teachers guide us to exactly the information we need, another example of super synchronicity. And I might mention here
that they always operate on a “Just In Time” basis…we get what we need when we need it or when we’re
ready for it, but not before. But even more than that, MEMWAH is a process that involves CREATION. We must create/construct
reality with the new information we become aware of, by putting it together in different ways.
MEMWAH also relates to the changes in DNA as observed by exoscientists by which it is the ACT of learning
that opens the gates to remembering. Thus, it is not self-directed action per se, and yet there is an aspect of self-direction
involved. It just happens naturally if we follow our most creative passions and interests (ever wonder why art, music, and
physical exercise is being cut in schools?). The MEMWAH process happens if we allow “life force energy” to flow
through us as we engage in creative activities—an idea that Joe reiterated throughout his work, referring to this powerful
energy as “Jouissance,” “radical love,” “eros,” “spirit,” among many other
terms. It is nature (when we escape the prison and FIDUROD). It is another example of Maturana & Varela’s concept of self-production
and the construction of our consciousness that occurs NATURALLY as long as we are not fettered with. It also relates to the
higher energies that we are exposed to and how they facilitate the MEMWAH process as earth travels to higher dimensions of
the cosmos. And the Twin Flame energies of alchemical union amplify the process for the two individuals
experiencing the union because the frequencies, energies, abilities to create, the knowledge, all increase exponentially.
It goes back to the Hermetic axiom that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Watch the following video of Tom Clearwater (below) with these ideas in mind. Here is a man who does not write
formally about his experiences, and yet is clearly on this MEMWAH path. He is aware that he now wishes to write more about
what he’s learning (so far he writes only on facebook). Writing “in flow” facilitates the process and allows
even more knowledge to flow through. As we edit our work, more knowledge automatically flows in and becomes interwoven with
the first writing. It needs to be remembered, however (and he definitely recognizes and applies this), that we must seek knowledge
outside ourselves (which then also gets interwoven)…this is an important aspect of the process because as exoscientists
have discovered, it’s this PROCESS, this OPEN PROCESS that fuels itself, creating feedback mechanisms. Correspondingly,
as more and more people discover this process for themselves, it will also serve as a feedback mechanism collectively that
will result in exponential growth of knowledge and understanding. I can honestly say, even though I don’t let this deter
me too much, that the amount of new knowledge and the new creations that could emanate from that new knowledge can be overwhelming.
We have more ideas than we can possibly implement. Joe has tried to prepare us for all of this with his work, so if you want
a gigantic headstart, that’s where I recommend beginning: Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction; Critical
Pedgogy: A Primer; and Critical Constructivism would be great books to start with.
Here is yet another related perspective to this Ancient Greek concept of MEMWAR, an excerpt from my dissertation:
"Science has been constructed to prevent us from learning truth about our extraterrestrial
heritage and true potential, according to exo-scientists Jiang and Li (2007). Pleiadians have shared some of the same trials
as earthlings and throughout the ages have tried to share their experiences so that we don’t experience the same setbacks
that could lead to the destruction of the planet. “But at present, not enough people on Earth are listening” attest
Jiang and Li. According to Michael Salla, a leading exo-scientist, there are more than 20 types of extraterrestrial genes
locked up in the DNA of humans, knowledge which reportedly has been shared through transmissions from Pleiadians. Within this
DNA “lies psycho-kinetic abilities associated with the genetic memories of ancient extraterrestrial races” (Jiang
& Li, 2007, para. 6) and genes also serve as “devices for extracting information from the environment” (Ridley,
2003, p. 148). This provides a scientific explanation for Kincheloe’s fourth dimension research." (p.
As the excerpt highlights, we have the biological “technology”
for connecting with our ancestors and remembering our past, present, and future. Some of us are already “activated.”
I can share this secret: In Joe’s work there are many activation codes. All you have to do is read his works. Soon you’ll
find yourself applying his amazing theory that leads the way to liberation—in many areas of your life.
Toward the end of this video, what Tom Clearwater relates to us about twin flames is very
interesting and confirms from another perspective the reality of the twin flame experience, a topic I’ve discussed extensively
on this website and in my dissertation.
I hope you enjoy this video—it
will give you another whole new perspective about what’s happening and what is our purpose on this planet. Needless
to say, this will drastically change the learning process. Are you ready?
The education system, from what I can observe, is only getting worse and it’s nothing
more than a dinosaur. It operates as a closed system, controlling who can get through the gates, what those people can say,
do, and research, charging ridiculous amounts for their researched knowledge that does not move us forward, shutting down
the very voices of those they purportedly are designed to serve. Education institutions will crumble under their own weight
unless many researchers, teachers, students, parents, and professionals take the bull by the horns and demand change. As education
stands today, it would not consider the voices of the Tom Clearwaters or Jerry O. Lees of the world. This must change.
MESSAGE FROM THE BEYOND
meeting was wonderful, as usual. What’s so great about having teachers on the other side of the curtain is that while
they can see so much more than we can and this is so helpful, at the same time, they were (and are) also in our footsteps.
They have walked on this planet. They understand our struggle. And what’s great about having completed my mission is
that I get messages like this one: “While we continue to work together on various projects, as I’ve said before,
we’re finished with our pre-selected tasks and in fact we have gone far beyond my wildest dreams regarding what we might
accomplish. No one on that planet can match what we’ve done. And don’t even worry about ‘the world’
not knowing—the entire cosmos does know and in time, more and more entities will awaken to the reality of what we’ve
accomplished.” I sighed a big sigh of relief at that point. I don’t know why I take so MUCH upon myself, but I
just do. He continued, “Wow—that was a great sigh of relief from you. I’m glad this lifts a burden from
you—a burden you don’t need to carry. As I always tell you—just do what you enjoy. Follow your passions.
Enjoy each moment and always ‘celebrate with song.’”
the only clue I was given this morning during my meeting for music was “celebrate in song” which brought MUGABE IS BACK. LET'S CELEBRATE. IN SONGup. It seems to relate to the growing global crisis…which has only just begun. Joe has written often about
this in his work, referring to it as a future reaction to what he called “the recovery movement”; in fact it was
so important that we understand it, that I believe he mentioned it in almost every book he wrote. Zimbabwe is an example;
if we understand its history and current situation, we will have knowledge for responding.Thus,
it seems to be a lesson about Zimbabwe’s economic and social conditions. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Zimbabwe
Something’s up but I don’t know what…time will tell.
The only thing I can really add to this
is that I’ve been observing that those in power and use their power for the wrong reasons seems to be losing their power
more each day. Envision the wicked witch of the west on the Wizard of Oz melting away…
WAVE AT THE WAVE
I am being flooded with information, I tend to “shut off” at times. I’m working on not doing that, but my
beloved soul family completely understands. I do miss the close connections and camaraderie that I know I could partake of,
thus to encourage me, my twin flame handed down this very touching song on Monday, November 17, 2014. The clue he gave me
is “Drift on back to me, Baby.” He misses me, too, our close contact and communication. Yes, we are always connected.
However, we must also be conscious. Communication requires directing our thoughts and being receptive of those thoughts being
sent to us. Indeed, the cosmos is gradually converting to a beautiful ocean of consciousness where, with focus, we CAN readily
connect with others—if we get past our “blinders,” false beliefs, and the prison bars of the matrix. There
is no division between “Heaven” and “Earth.”If there ever was one, it’s
This is the amazingly “poignant” (as a dear friend stated it) song that came up on the YouTube
search (I really don’t know HOW he does this! But I do love him for it.):
Knowledge is Love and Other Knowledge Secrets, PLUS A N.E.W. Special Treasure Hunt Begins TODAY—INTERNATIONAL TWIN FLAME DAY!
Knowledge is Love. That was my message from Enki a couple of days
ago. And if you know the Enki and Ki god/goddess love story, it all makes sense! Enki gave all of his knowledge—his
love and special gifts—to KI. That sounds VERY familiar to me. I have said from the beginning that Joe has handed down
and shares his gifts with me…it is true. He is still my Master Teacher. I feel so very blessed. What a loving thing
to do. He used to tell me often that he was ENdebted to me (see my previous blog for analysis of EN) and that he would never
be able to repay me. I had always felt the same way about him for sharing his great knowledge in all of the books he wrote
and with all of his generous sharing on his website. How much MORE “endebted” I feel toward him today! Love and
gratitude don’t begin to express it.
We learned from Foucault, of course, that Knowledge is Power…but
did Foucault, another Great Teacher, teach us that Power is Love? I’m not sure, but I do know it’s what Joe teaches
us. He has opened up all of the gates to understanding! We just need to do the work it takes to go through them and absorb
the frequencies that will flow to us as we walk the path toward greater knowledge.
I learn something new every day and
every night, and at times I am overwhelmed by how fast (and often so amazing) the information comes to me. Every night before
I go to sleep, it seems I get lessons from my Master Teacher, who I know by so many names, including Enki now. There are many
MIS-STORIES (a new word that means parts of the stories--the HIS-STORIES--are wrong and need to be rewritten!) about Enki
(as well as many other things we’ve learned in history and through mythologies). I happen to know Enki is a GOOD God
and he wants the people set free. Enlil, his brother is the one who wants to kill off most of the people and enslave the rest.
The wars between Enki and Enlil are waged periodically throughout history. They are battling now in the Cosmos and on Earth.
The signs are all around us.
This is MYStory (thank you, Denzin):
Night-before-last Eros/Sanat/Enki taught me something new! I learned that we BOTH have
the word EN (which means Lord/Priest/Priestess) and the word KI which means earth (for him) and goddess (for me), embedded
in our original earth names. The god Enki is “Lord of the World/Earth” (similar to Sanat being King of the
world) and it’s encoded right in Joe’s name. KI, as it turns out, also means goddess and it is my name as Enki's
consort....it is also in my first original name (before I changed my name) and my brothers always used to call me a version
of "KI", short for the name "Vickie" perhaps because they knew subconsciously who I really was. I hated
the name “Vickie” with a passion (I felt my mother had named me after Queen Victoria but had refused to give me
the full name, just the nickname, and I never liked Queen Victoria) and so my brothers called me “KI” as best
as they could pronounce it as little toddlers...and Joe's nickname was "Jodie" which he didn't like either...we
both dropped our “-ie” nicknames at about the same time in linear time, even though we didn't "know"
each other. It is just so weird how much we have in common, but then it was clearly by divine design; we were clearly
consciously connected (and the evidence for this is actually off the charts that any positivistic science may try to create.
In other words the statistical significance would register "astronomical").
Joe LyONs KIncheloe -- the "on"
is pronounced "en" and then he has the KI in his last name, to form EN-KI.
For me, my name was Vickie Martin with the "KI" in my first name and "in" in my last name pronounced
as "EN," thus KI-EN. He taught me the other night that it's the sounds--the frequency more than the letters themselves
that are important.
Thus in his name it was EN-KI and in my name, KI-EN...I often find
that type of yin-yang relationship between us.
YES!! That provides another
dimension of understanding as to why he gifted me right off the bat (back in 2009) with the silver yin-yang talisman
(in the photo) during what he had called the “Back Yard Treasure Hunt!” It’s amazing how all of the
BRICOLAGE pieces come together!!
we are bringing together four frequency aspects to make a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. In addition, according
to Wikipedia, ENKI’s number is 40. The number 0 is supposed to represent ‘man’ but means nothing until a
number is in front of it and then 0 multiplies that number exponentially. So 40 is not just 40…when combining 4 aspects
and zero (which also represents infinity) it multiplies the power of those 4 aspects exponentially and infinitely. There is
much more to these mathematics, but it’s beyond my understanding for the time-being.
There is a caveat to uniting through frequencies. Again, if you research the ENKI and KI history the
power is manifested from LOVE. We need to seek knowledge for by seeking knowledge we find LOVE. It’s an eternal journey,
but the point of the journey is to enjoy it and be in bliss no matter if the roller coaster takes a dive on occasion. Love
always brings us out on top!
I'm learning so much. I wish I had more time
to document all of this for other people who come along and want to understand how to apply it to their own lives. For that
is my main motivation as it was also Joe’s motivation: we wish to provide this information so that people are able to
use knowledge to empower themselves. Everyone has their own stories that will unite them with their beloved eternal soul family.
Some people might argue that having EN-KI and KI-EN in our names means nothing. If that was the only thing special about our
names, I might agree. But I’ve discussed “what’s in a name” along with many amazing synchronicities
many times previously. When you put them all together, the messages multiply in meaning and power, taking “sychronicity”
and “serendipity” to those Super zones I’ve also written about in previous blogs. For example, the fact
that my earth name literally means Psyche Heaven and my middle name, Jae is feminine for Joe, is beyond explanation other
than perhaps we were working together behind the curtains and planning out our story—and then working together to put
it in action after we “met” in 2008. Another example is how Joe’s last name sounds a lot like King Joe plus
he was born in Kingsport, TN, and passed away in Kingston, Jamaica…how can you miss that “Kingly” message?
Those are just a couple of examples. There is so much more! Some I’ve discussed already and some is yet to be discovered.
A TIP FOR QUALITATIVE RESEARCHERS
I must say, we have taken QUALITATIVE RESEARCH quite off the charts!! I would just like to mention here for
you researchers out there that it is extremely important to collect lots of data! When you start discovering the Super Synchronicities,
Super Serendipitous Events, Super Symbiotics, etc., you will want to be able to show multiple forms of data that support various
interpretations of these events. In fact, as strange as some of your discoveries will be, with enough correlated, “contextualized”
(as Joe would put it) data, well, you end up with interpretations that are nearly undeniable…for example that can indirectly
represent the connection between people at higher levels of consciousness. And in this way, we can learn more about consciousness,
a topic Joe was so interested in and concerned over how it seems to be neglected in research.
It’s beyond the scope of this blog to cover
all of the data collection that should be happening, but I did touch on it in my dissertation which can help get people started.
This topic needs to be greatly expanded upon as more people engage in this kind of research and writing. There is nothing
out there that adequately discusses what Joe refers to as Fourth Dimension Research. It is a huge topic as it manifests in
almost infinite ways once you start engaging in it.
THE SINGING OF THE BIRDS
Birds sing the frequencies of the Cosmos. They can hear those frequencies we cannot, as can other animals.
Thus, it is the various frequencies, the sounds, that unite people but they have to become aware of them. As Einstein noted,
the universe manifests as music (which is why music must play a prominent role!) There is a whole range of frequencies and,
of course, many beyond our “normal” range of hearing (but I do hear those frequencies constantly now. If you listen
to a lot of birds singing all at the same time, you’ll have an idea of what those higher frequencies sound like). I
only know two of the individual frequencies that apply to me and my soul family so far (the SA-AS frequency, which I’ve
written about previously, and now the EN-KI/KI-EN frequency). Different soul groups will have different frequencies and ultimately
different soul groups will connect together by means of reconnecting to these frequencies...this is how unity is achieved,
and at the very same time, individuation. It's not like New Age teaches--a "given" that “we are all one”
(Joe made that clear in his work); we must become conscious of the connections. Otherwise we're just floundering in the dark.
We can all love, make music, and dance—consciously—and that is what creation is all about.
Speaking of music, I was handed down this beautiful
love song a few days ago…that came by way of another soul family member. The message is beautiful and it is messages
like these that keep me strong during the Cosmic War between Enki and Enlil.
And finally, what is Enki’s message? Of course there is a cosmic
war going on beneath most people’s perception which they can perceive if they take time to learn about more. Enki sent
this important music message. It’s amazing how many messages I receive through music. This song,
given to me on November 8, reminds us that “times are a changing” and kinda let’s us know we’re going
to be ok…I love the reminder right at the front that we are on a QUEST…he does know how to pick out the perfect
I was reminded that
today is INTERNATIONAL TWIN FLAME DAY, a day of love celebrations throughout the Cosmos, actually. Thus, this explains to
me why my beloved had previously told me (back on November 1) that today is the start of an exceptionally special Treasure
Hunt which will permeate every aspect of our lives and will continue now for eternity! He has called it the GOLD, GODS, and
LOVE TREASURE HUNT.
It is his wish….his wish is my command.
KNOWLEDGE SECRETS: JOE'S "DANGEROUS KNOWLEDGE"
One last thing: There are some amazing secrets about knowledge that you will never, ever learn
in school. It relates to Joe’s references throughout his work to “dangerous knowledge.” I think I am supposed
to discuss those.
P.S. In the Meantime, Here’s A Wikipedia Story about ENKI and KI
Enki and Ninhursag (aka KI) and the Creation
The cosmogenic myth common in
Sumer was that of the hieros gamos, a sacred marriage where divine principles in the form of dualistic opposites came together as male and female to give birth
to the cosmos. In the epic Enki and Ninhursag, Enki, as lord of Ab or fresh water (also the Sumerian word
for semen), is living with his wife in the paradise of Dilmun where
"The land of Dilmun is a
pure place, the land of Dilmun is a clean place,
The land of Dilmun is a clean place, the land of Dilmun is a bright place;
He who is alone laid himself down in Dilmun,
The place, after Enki is clean, that place is bright"
Despite being a place where "the raven uttered
no cries" and "the lion killed not, the wolf snatched not the lamb, unknown was the kid-killing dog, unknown
was the grain devouring boar", Dilmun had no water and Enki heard the cries of its Goddess, Ninsikil, and orders
the sun-God Utu to bring fresh water from the Earth for Dilmun. As a result
"Her City Drinks the Water of Abundance,
Dilmun Drinks the Water of Abundance,
Her wells of bitter water, behold they are become wells of good water,
Her fields and farms produced crops and grain,
Her city, behold it has become the house of
the banks and quays of the land."
was identified with Bahrein, whose name in Arabic means "two seas", where the fresh waters of the Arabian aquifer mingle with the salt waters of the Persian Gulf. This mingling of waters was known in Sumerian as Nammu, and was identified as the mother of Enki.
subsequent tale, with similarities to the Biblical story of the forbidden fruit, repeats the story of how fresh water brings
life to a barren land. Enki, the Water-Lord then "caused to flow the 'water of the heart"

An Overdue Update: The Treasure Hunt Heats Up, Never-Before-Released Photograph of Nibiru-the Destroyer Planet, and Messages
from the Gods
I was gifted with this rainbow outside my livingroom window just before I celebrated my birthday on 10-24-2014 (My actual
birthday is the 23rd but we were celebrating the 24th)
When Joe mentioned in
his last book that “we must be willing to sometimes be seen as the fools
of the gods.(Kincheloe, Knowledge & Critical Pedagogy, p. 19)I paid attention but thought he was being facetious as he is known at times to be in his writing. But I now fully realize
that he was not kidding. He meant it in the most sincere and literal way, while at the same time leaving options open for
interpretation. After all, not many people will choose to be “fools” so he’s left gates open to escape should
one discover it’s not the path for them. However, it appears there is a point of no return and I have reached that point.
I can no longer deny the “gods.”
So many things have happened since my last update, but I will focus on
one primary magical event since it’s rather important at this juncture in human history. While I had wanted this website
to focus on the academic application of Joe’s qualitative research process, I find that would be an extremely limiting
and constrictive endeavor. Joe wanted broad application of his theory and as you get to know it, you’ll understand why.
As I review the
educational literature, I continue to be disappointed by the politics of education, the lack of imagination, and the constraining
explanations of Joe’s theoretical work. In some cases, as I have pointed out, there have been what by my interpretation
are deliberate attempts to lobotomize his theory so that research students cannot possibly apply it.
We must be thinking much more
broadly about Joe’s theoretical work, while at the same time take seriously the goals he has expressed—to take
our learning, consciousness, and love to the highest levels that are within our reach as humble human beings. I will continue
to expand on academic applications, but unless researchers are willing to take a gigantic leap, formal education will continue
to stagnate and eventually become totally obsolete. It currently operates as a “cash cow” with little return for
the investment from the student perspective and it operates as a completely closed system. The system must open doors in all
of the ways one might envision, or people will—and they already are, actually—going to other sources for their
learning. There are people applying Joe’s theory (even though they may not realize that’s what they’re doing)
who have not received formal degrees and PhDs. This trend will continue to grow, making formal education less and less relevant.
are those in education who may be serious about making changes. Thus, I will continue to add to this site for academic research
purposes, but I will also “carry on” and show examples of how Joe’s bricolage literally changes who we are—just
as he has “warned” us about so often in his work. It also changes almost everything we know about everything.
There are sound reasons for his asking us to take “oppositional” readings and interpretations.
The more you use his suggestions
and his form of research, the more you will continue to reach higher states of consciousness. Life totally changes, to say
Communication from the Beyond
I seem to be consciously connected with many people now on both sides of
the curtain. This phenomenon continues to increase. I can read minds (maybe I always could), and I seem to have telepathic
communication with quite a number of people. I only state this here because it explains why certain things have happened that
I’m about to describe.
One Thing Leads to Another
My life is extremely magical now, since connecting with
Joe. He spoke of magic often in his work. If anyone on this planet understood and could implement magic, I am now totally
convinced it was him. I’ve already described many of the magical experiences in the blogs on this site, but they do
not account for all of them. It would be impossible to describe them all.
I am, however, being prompted to share this most recent
experience because, perhaps, humanity needs this information…these messages…from the gods (?).
It’s difficult to describe when it all began, because everything is so interlinked. However, most
recently I was prompted (by whom?) to explore an old conversation I had with Joe on his website back in 2008. I was reminiscing
as well because back on October 23, 2008 and thereabouts as well, we had many conversations, and in particular about his bricolage.
But there was something very deep going on and I “knew” it at the time, but I was not fully conscious.
And so on October
15, 2014, I was given some clues I had analyzed previously right in these blogs about the bird “kingfisher.” This
is relevant to the Venus and Sanat Kumara treasure hunt but I’ll leave that for discovery and a future discussion. I
was told on that date, “you should see the signs tomorrow.”
What Are the Signs?
October 18, I was getting the information that there was something in a message from Joe back on October 18, 2008. I also
reviewed briefly the journey, our “Great Mission” and how we went from being Joe and Vanessa to Emanuel and Soferia,
to Eros and Psyche, to Sanat-Eros Kumara and Venus….where else could this journey possibly take us? I honestly felt
we had reached the pinnacle. I feel the multidimensionality of being human Joe discusses throughout his work and on that date,
I was reassured “As I’ve always said, it takes two to reach this level of Being…we need each other. Ascension
does not happen in a single bubble.” I find the message humorous because of the different possible interpretations…
Later that date,
again, I mentioned that I felt like there was a special message from Joe on October 18, 2008. I was informed that I was on
track to some more discoveries and that the EN is special and I would want to do some more research on that.
I did make some discoveries, but as of today, I have not found the conversation on October 18, 2008. I’m not sure there
was one—at least not “on paper.” That treasure hunt will have to wait for another day; I was on a quest
to understand EN.
EN: The Sign of the Gods
What was this EN being referred to? Well Joe had written me a special message
about how he felt “ENdebted” to me for the work I did on his website. There was something about that message that
made my mind go “click” but I did not know what it was or why. It almost felt like my DNA memory gates were opening.
Scientists have discovered that learning certain things open the DNA gates to memory. There is something to this.
In my research,
I learned that the word “endebted” is an obsolete word; the correct spelling is “indebted.” Now why
would a confessed word magician make this change? And why was I being told to research EN?
I dutifully researched EN and
found that it’s Sumerian cuneiform and means “lord” or “high priest” or “high priestess.”
Had Joe “ENcoded” a very special message that day? It FELT like it to me at the time, even though I didn't consciously
know what the message was.
November 1, 2014: The Treasure Hunt Heats Up
Interestingly, I just now as I write this, discover the message that he wrote of
being "endebted" to me was exactly 6 years ago today! We do tend to celebrate various anniversaries. This is very
significant since I have also received notification that the Treasure Hunts heat up in multiple places and in multiple formats.
I was also getting hints about an ancient Sumerian god named Enki….did not put things together. There is some kind
of book called the Book of Enki. I discovered that BPEarthWatch on YouTube has described it somewhat.
Today, a “god” named
Enki gave me the official start of the “Gold, Gods, and Love Treasure Hunt”: This is 11-11-2014, celebrating our
new (since 11-11-11) Twin Flame Love Day. It’s a treasure hunt that will take a multitude of formats, so vast, it is
impossible to describe. As is often said, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” That leaves
it wide open, but no less magical…it will be amazing before it’s all over.
Bricolage Takes On a Life of Its
An interesting thing happens with bricolage research when you begin making conscious connections—the
information just keeps coming before you until you put things together. If you don’t “get it” the gods are
persistent and keep presenting you with it until you do. It really is quite magical sometimes, but you have to not fear the
chaos. You have to not become overwhelmed by the enormity and intensity of the information and not worry too much about how
to put it all together. It really does become like a natural dance where the music plays improvisationally and you create
your dance steps as you go.
Many people cannot handle this sort of chaos….and there are multiple
reasons for the chaos which comes from all directions. It is very real and it permeates many dimensions of our lives. There
are planetary and cosmological events that actually create this sense of chaos and I believe it’s why so many people
are going “bananas” (although many of them would say that I’m the one who’s crazy but that’s
simply because they are not getting the messages I’m getting).
The Destroyer Planet is coming, Nibiru, Planet X, or whatever
other name wishes to assign it. The changes in the atmosphere are literal and real. The atmospheric modifications being made
by the government are multifarious. They want to mitigate certain aspects while also capitalize on other aspects of the coming
chaos. The high energies bombarding the sun and the planet are real and measurable. Our minds, bodies,
and souls are being bombarded from multiple directions and in multiple ways. People either numb out, drug up, go crazy, or
deal with it and transcend it.
Many people cannot cope with everything that’s happening or the high energies, and we have seen
nothing yet….and this is the gist of my message today, where I’m going with this blog today. Some people believe
this is God taking his vengeance. This is not the way I am interpreting it here. It’s a cosmic event that happens every
26,000 years due to the orbital path of a very large planet, Nibiru, or what some people refer to as a second sun.
You can learn more
about it in this video which I was guided to in my research. The research presented here seems quite accurate and it’s
pointed out how certain corporate interests will attempt to capitalize on what’s happening.
is Real Planet X System Observations and Orbital Analysis
This is a photograph I took in 2013 just outside my patio door. On the right side of the sun is "Blue Bonnet" (the
blue kachina?). On the left side of the sun is Venus (upper), Jupiter (lower left), and the "Destroyer" planet,
Nibiru, or also called Planet X (lower right, closest to the sun). Photo taken in 2013 (approximately December, I believe...will
need to check additional data).
Now something I found fascinating was that the orbital presented in the above video explains the photograph
I had taken back in 2013 (view the video at 1:06 orbital path of blue
bonnet and planet x). I had simply pointed the camera up at the sun and caught what I thought at the
time were lens flares, and yet I had filed the photo in a folder titled “Nibiru.” Very interesting. What is the
purpose of my having received this photograph? Is it to provide evidence to those who doubt the existence of Nibiru? Or is
it a fluke--a sort of cosmic joke. I should have the photograph analyzed by the scientist who put together his data and created
Compare this photo with the orbital path presented in the video above that shows the location of Venus, Jupiter,
Nibiru, on the left of the sun and a planet the researcher calls “Blue Bonnet” on the right side of the sun. The
correlation is too amazing. And in my photograph, Nibiru even has what looks like “wings” as shown in so many
images of the planet.
Blue Bonnet, the planet to the right of the sun, reportedly will become more and more visible in time.
I believe it may be what the Native Americans refer to as the Blue Kachina in their prophecies…and perhaps the Destroyer
is the Red Kachina. I’m not sure and will have to do more research—and so should you if you’re interested
As some people might say, we are in the “end times.” Well, I don’t know about that, but I do believe that,
as the video described, Nibiru is occulted by the sun. As Nibiru gets closer and closer to the sun, sunspot activity will
increase—and there seems to be a correlation between sunspot activity and increased earthquakes and extreme weather.
photo on the left is the sun on 10-26-2014. It shows a huge sunspot.
tell, but if this scenario is true, we will continue to see the ramping up of earth changes and people being unable to handle
the changes….as I have often said: EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE. Are we all prepared?
And this is the gist of Joe’s work….when
you come to understand it, everything changes. But Joe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage is very helpful
for putting it all together and to know what actions to take. You can even receive “divine” guidance.
Enki Speaks to Me from the Beyond
It is so difficult to relay the complexity of the information I keep receiving. Joe did provide
us some guidance, but for the most part, HOW we convey the knowledge we construct is wide open. People are going to have to
become more flexible and open to a variety of presentations. That much Joe did make very clear. We all have much to learn
about this…many of us will be getting messages from the beyond and it may be difficult to explain how we have come
to know these things.
As I presented, I was led to a message Joe had given me and to interpret the word EN, which is Sumerian
meaning Lord, High Priest, High Priestess. Why was this message given to me?
While the discussion went on for a long time, no one really solved it and as the message moved off the page, people
dropped out of the discussion. At the last moment, I was provided (“handed down”) a solution to the puzzle that
worked but I knew it was not really the end of the analysis. I thought it was a very clever solution and felt it had been
“handed down” to me since the entire puzzle and discussion was totally improvisational.
Thus, because I had “solved”
the puzzle, I was given the “key,” just as Sanat-Eros had promised.
And suddenly it all fit together…EN-KEY…Enki.
As I read about Enki, a “god” closest to God by some accounts, it all fits….there is a golden strand of
love to follow here from Enki forward through earth history—when we are able to sort through the
disinformation. Enki always rallies for the people. He has always been egalitarian and has seen men and women equal. He has
taught the people not to worship other people; there is but one God.
Joe’s “golden strand of love” which he
has wound throughout his work represents this higher level love (2008). Strangely, I relate to that Golden Strand in a most
intimate sense. We need Joe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage to sort it all out and “follow the gold,”
or “follow the yellow brick road.” Which gold do we follow? For what purposes? The path is narrow. “Blessed
are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.”
The above are links to my blogs. I did not know at
the time of writing them, especially when I first began, that I was recording my Spiritual Journey of Ascension with Joe,
who is my Twin Flame (which I also did not know when I began this journey, but I have provided undeniable evidence in my dissertation and much more evidence since writing it). All I knew when I began this journey after Joe’s death (by which I had
been extremely traumatized) was that I was compelled to write the blogs, every day at first, and I seemed to have been getting
instructions from Joe and from “Above.” I did not understand how the Celestial Spirits were guiding us along our
journey nor the Power they have due to their Love connection to God (as Joe tells us over and over again in his work, there
is nothing more powerful than love). My connection to Joe connected me powerfully to his love and to God’s Love, through
the Holy Spirit. My experiences as recorded in the blogs proves what Joe has taught us about the power of love—over
and over again (I’m a slow learner, for which I feel sad. I was totally asleep when I met Joe and did not even believe
in soulmates. I hope you will not be as slow a learner as I have been). Nevertheless, what an amazing, beautiful journey it
has been! It’s full of adventure, mystery, learning about the world, learning about our past, present and future, and
engaging in super fun and sometime hilarious treasure hunts.
If you want to follow the path and connect to God’s
amazing Love, begin reading at the first link 2009.05.03 and move forward. You will learn a lot!!
I did. And there are millions of Celestial Spirits just waiting to serve as your personal teachers and guides. They want to
take you treasure hunting (they do know where the treasures are) and guide you along your own personal path just like they
did for me. I will not be writing any more blogs here because now I will be teaching Joe’s material “up above”
and continuing along yet another amazing path. You can follow along the next leg of our journey by clicking on the links to
the various courses, treasure hunt quests, etc. We are creating multiple paths now in multiple directions. Are you ready?
There is something for everyone! All you need to do is engage sincerely with seeking knowledge and spreading love
in the world, and then God’s magic will appear in your life too…no more suffering…only love, bliss, joy,
passionate engagement with learning—for everyone, infinitely and eternally. God is Good!! Check it out! 20160227-1330 Rewards Of Developing My Will To Love
