I’ve been a big documentary watcher for the past several years; but it has been a awhile since I compiled together most of the documentaries, which have made an impression on me over the years. That’s just what I did today!
I’ve embedded a semantically organized repository of documentaries and discussions, containing independent, non-conventional perspectives on a wide array of topics; generally focused on alternative historical perspectives.
The documentaries are organized semantically into Pearl Trees; to make them easy to maintain, navigate and organize. This repository will be maintained and added to on a regular basis, to ensure that there is always fresh, working content and the latest indie documentaries which become available online.
No man is an island, entire of itself
every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main
if a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were,
as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were
any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind
and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls
it tolls for thee. ~ John Donne
Our Collective Body
The great sage, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (founder of the Hari Krishna movement), once said “there is no love but self-love.” He certainly doesn’t mean “self-love” as the popular, ego-centered existence, would have you create. It is an entirely different notion of the “self,” one that regards all sentient beings as part of one’s self-hood.
Like many of the great thinkers throughout history, Srila Prabhupada realized that we are all intimately joined with a great body of energy that forms the basis all beings in the myriad of dimensions that make up our existence.
Indeed the thoughts that comprise the very fiber of our being are made of energy, not atoms and molecules. Still today, however, the scientists are mystified by the psychic world, as they have not yet devised a method by which psychic forces can be measured and understood with material instruments.

“We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society. We copy emotional reactions from our parents… Society is our extended mind and body”
“When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside of you as fate.”
Many of you may find this video, a lecture by Michael Tsarion, to be of interest. The lecture covers a wide range of topics, focusing primarily on the nature of consciousness, alternative history and the work of people like Carl Jung and Alan Watts.
Tsarion describes the following quote as the theme for this presentation:
“The gigantic catastrophes that threaten us today are not elemental happenings of a physical or biological order, but psychic events. To a quite terrifying degree we are threatened by wars and revolutions which are nothing more than psychic epidemics. Instead of being at the mercy of wild beasts, earthquakes, and inundations, modern man is battered by forces of his own psyche. As with all dangers, we can only guard against the risk of psychic infection when we know what is attacking us, and how, when, and where the attack will come.”
“If we are to answer the question of how evil has really come into the world and if it is correct to state that it did so because of alien interaction, then the question appropriately arises as to how we are still battling with the problem of evil today. Why is it not all over and done with given that the conflict began in pre-diluvian times? Surely, if “evil” had conquered, then today there would be no question of “good” being an alternative or a presence in the world. And if “good” had triumphed, then today we would all be living in peace and harmony.”~ Michael Tsarion – Akhenaton & the Dark Side of the Sun
During the course of this long and in-depth discussion, Michael Tsarion discusses the forbidden knowledge of the ancient Egyptians and the deliberate cover-up of knowledge about it, by prominent academic organizations. This has left many so-called “educated” people with a complete void of knowledge regarding our connections to the ancient world.
