• NOTE:

    This website is a Bubble in the Bubble Map of the free-to-play, massively-multiplayer, online-and-offline, thoughtware-upgrade, matrix-building, personal-transformation, adventure-game called StartOver.xyz. It is a doorway to experiments that upgrade your thoughtware so you can relocate your point of origin and create more possibility. Your knowledge is what you think about. Your thoughtware is what you use to think with. When you change your thoughtware, you go through a liquid state as your mind reorganizes itself. Liquid states can bring up transformational feelings and emotions. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness and leave behind a low drama life of reactivity. No one can upgrade your thoughtware for you. More interestingly, no one can stop you from upgrading your thoughtware. Our theory is that when we collectively build 1,000,000 new Matrix Points we will change the morphogenetic field of the human race for the better. Please choose responsibly to read this website. Reading this whole website is worth 1 Matrix Point. Doing any of the experiments earns you additional Matrix Points. Please use Matrix Code BANELDER.00 to log your Matrix Point for reading this website on StartOver.xyz. Thank you for playing full out!

  • Next Culture Elderhood

    Archearchal Elderhood includes: "The willingness to look at what is unfolding with the collapse of the biosphere, without turning away, without invoking magical thinking, and yet not pitching into despair.

    These times are calling not for manic urgency, but for measured discernment about what actions are worth doing in a time of great endings.

    Any political or cultural discussion that banks on an inevitable future, which does not admit to collapse of civilization as the backdrop of everything, is either deliberately manipulative or willfully ignorant.

    It is the function of an elder in a meaning-bereft time to be willing to say what is true, thereby inviting us out of adolescence and into proper adulthood."

  • An elderly woman with a crown made of twigs

    'Crone, hag, and witch once were positive words for old women. Crone comes from crown, indicating wisdom emanating from the head; hag comes from hagio meaning holy; and witch comes from wit meaning wise. Crones, hags, and witches frequently were leaders, midwives and healers in their communities. The meanings of these three words, however, were distorted and eventually reversed during the 300 years of the Inquisition when the male-dominated church wanted to eliminate women holding positions of power. Women identified as witches, who were often older women, i.e. crones and hags, were tortured and burned, and the words witch, crone, and hag took on the negative connotations that continue in our language. The Crone Movement, however, is re-claiming the positive meanings of these words.'
