of communication may generate feedback loops,
they may acquire the ability to regulate themselves. For example, a community
that maintains an active network of communication will learn from its mistakes,
because the consequences of a mistake will spread through the network and return
to the source along feedback
loops. Thus the community can correct its mistakes, regulate itself, and organize
itself. Indeed, self-organization has emerged as perhaps 'the' central concept
in the systems view of life, and like the concepts of feedback and self-regulation,
it is linked closely to networks. The pattern of life, we might say, is a network
pattern capable of self-organization. This is a simple definition, yet it is
based on recent discoveries at the very forefront of science."

_Return To The Source: Rediscovering Lost Knowledge & Ancient Wisdom_
Where do you go when you close your
eyes on the dancefloor? Return To THe Source rolls back the centuries
to trace a line from the strobes and drum machines of the 20th Century to the
pagan fire and lost rituals of our ancestors. Let's go back in time...
The all-night dance
ritual is a memory that runs deep within us all, a memory that takes us
back to a time
when people had respect for our great mother earth and each other.
A time when we came together to dance as one tribe united in spirit.
We understood the cycles of nature and the powers of the elements.We danced
around great fires, we chanted and we drummed, invoking the great spirit
to empower ourselves and our community.
Then one day a new force
began to take control and these great rites of empowerment were surpressed.
Our sacred sites where we once danced all night into ecstatictrance
had been taken over by a new order of worship; forcing us to sit down in cold
silence and listen, not move. The new forces were strong. They released
a Papal Decree (an early draft of the CJB) which forbade all rituals.
They smashed our temples and burnt our healers. They put the fire goddess
in chains and burnt her at stake.
They worked hard to eradicate
the memory of the dance ritual but it remained a seed deep within us all,
to emerge one day in a new age, the age of technology. The time when
humanity would wake up from its long slumber, once again to unite in the
all-night dance ritual.
Gradually the spirit of the people would return
as they recognized the sacred power of trance, once again opening up the
channels to the Great Spirit. They would join together as one new
tribe, 'The Rainbow Tribe': all colours, all races, all as one. The
temples may have changed but the sacred earth they dance upon is still
At Return To The Source it
is our vision to bring back the dance ritual. A ritual is a sacred
act with focused intention.
Our intention is to create a modern day temple, a positive space created
with love, where we can join as one tribe to journey deep into trance just
as our ancestors did long ago. We view the dancefloor as a
sacred space, a place to connect with our power.
To create this sacred space
we use backdrops and totemic decor painted by the visionary artsists Zag.
An energy grid is set up using quartz crystals place at specific points
in the building, with a larger crystal hanging over a seven-pointed star.
This star, drawn n the centre of the dancefloor, is an ancient symbol for
grounding cosmic energy into the physical plane (Australian
Aborigines take days to create symbols in the sand on which they dance
during ceremonies to awaken the symbols.)
Just before opening the doors and letting Return
To The Source begin, our Shamanic friends sprinkle Chalice Well water
through the venue and burn sage which the American Indians use to cleanse
energy. These ancient, sacred acts give us positive energy, empower
our intention and open the dancefloor up to the possibilities of the dance
as ritual... to its source.

Dumbing Down of Programming Part II: Returning to the Source - Once Knowledge
Disappears Into Code, How Do We Retrieve It?_ -
by Ellen Ullman - captured from Salon
Music without words means leaving
behind the mind. And leaving behind the mind is meditation. Meditation returns
you to the source. And the source of all is sound.
Neo: And why would a program be deleted?
Maybe it breaks down. Maybe a better program is created to replace it -
happens all the time, and when it does, a program can either choose to hide
here, or return to The Source.
Neo: The machine mainframe?
The Oracle: Yes. Where you must go.
Where the path of The One ends. You've seen it, in your dreams,
haven't you? The door made of light?
Architect: The function of the One
is now to return to the Source, allowing a temporary dissemination of the code
you carry, reinserting the prime program. After which, you will be required
to select from the Matrix 23
individuals - 16 female, 7 male - to rebuild Zion. Failure to comply with this
will result in a cataclysmic system crash, killing everyone connected to the
Matrix, which, coupled with the extermination of Zion, will ultimately result
in the extinction of the entire human race.
Neo: You won't let it happen. You can't. You need human beings to survive.
