(this link only seems to work on SAFARI for me - you may have to cut and paste)

Watch along while Canadian Bruce Powe declares:

1. McLuhan in 1960: "we had crossed the energy threshold... we were now in a new realm of electricity, of charge... in fact, our world was wired-up and wireless"

2. Gnosticism - "the user is content, you are the music while the music lasts"

3. Hermeticism - "everything is connected, everything is inter-fused, everything is influenced by everything else"

4. Alchemy - "everything is transformed by the media that we use"

5. Kaballah - "the world is a text to be read"

6. "the universe is a vast resonating cosmic vibration", "the cosmos is reverberating, calling, thundering", "electronic media was a Big Bang in which human technology was reverberating, calling, vibrating back"... "a fool sees not the same TV that a wise man sees"

7. "medium is the message-massage":
Alchemy - All forms and media transform us

8. "user is content":
Gnosis - Knowledge that all meaning and intentions flow through you

9. "Electric media extend the human nervous system":
Hermetic wisdom - As above so below - All things interconnect and interfuse - Through the media we are everywhere all at once

10. "a vast mutuality going on" - "extension means growth, entanglement, complexity, and involvement... not imposition/alienation"

11: "Global Village/Global Theatre""
Kaballah - All images and experiences are texts to be read - The language of the world can be restored to sense

12. from Ancient Wisdom to Hieroglyph = began with the idea that humankind is at the centre of the cosmos
to the Renaissance notion = all consciousness is awareness
to William Blake notion = if we opened ourselves, our minds, our hearts, apocalyptically, that we would see, with the great global embrace that we now have through the noosphere of electronic consciousness, that a new society is evolving - the Hydroglyphic

13. the Second Creation is "electronica": we are riding the electronic waves and primed by the fire of the energy of the cosmos itself... we are mainlining energy itself through electricity... we are approaching the great challenge of our Next Age: the Neuro-Romanticism (exhaustions of hyper-modernism) that's coming!

This is what you're trying to say, Bruce (I laid this out a couple of years ago):

Forensics of the Environmental Hoods:

1. Global Village (1840-1900)
2. Solar Theater (1910-60)
3. Universal Membrane (1970-1990)
4. Mythic Erogenous Zone (1995-2010)
5. Millennial Ecstatics of 5-Bodied Expressions (2011...)

BOB: Of course, that's Powe's (an old Toronto friend of mine) misnomer for iONdom which is already here (listen to the first 20 min. of today's broadcast by Dr. Carolyn Dean for the exciting confirmation by Live-cell microscopy):
