The killer ape continues its legacy, while its actions and most common philosophies have failed the biosphere.

The time has passed to rethink our priorities.

Just when you thought it couldn't get worse...

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

And just when I thought it couldn’t possibly get worse… A quick Google search corrected me…


Mount Finlayson, a beautiful mountain overlooking Goldstream where the salmon spawn here (and where the bears used to feed playing a key role in the eco-system as the bears would then fertilize the forested hinterland) is from where I first observed bear mountain being destroyed and turned into a monstrosity a decade or so ago. And now as surreal it can possibly be, they are planning to build a Gondola right to the top of Mt. Finlayson connecting it to bear mountain and massive further developments built with the money which is being gained from 'Bear mountain' by a group ironically called “Ecoasis.”


And the new interchange involved the demolition of a sacred cave of the indigenous peoples.

Yeah great karma for healing and therapy.


Psychedelic Irony hits Victoria

Last night in the village near where I live I noticed a poster for a psychedelic gathering on the outskirts of Victoria.

Quite surprised and interested, I then read that it was being held at Bear Mountain Resort. I then felt my stomach sinking.

“Venue: Westin Bear Mountain Resort and Spa, Victoria, BC
Meet and network with forum presenters. Live band entertainment; DJ music incorporating psychedelic African funk, afro-beat, and Nigerian disco. Join our interactive art factory. Share your psychedelic-inspired music or spoken words. Money will be raised for the “Moving Forward” project.”


Really moving forward? Time for a bit of history about bear mountain. Bear mountain was a beautiful mountain that was completely forest covered and was a place of habitation for wildlife including not surprisingly the bears the mountain is named after.

A decade or so ago the forest was demolished and replaced by a giant oversize resort, spa and water intensive golf course for the super rich made so it is said by some hot shot hockey player for him and his overpaid multi-millionaire cronies.

To deal with what was expected to be an increase in traffic volume (already the highway out near that direction has been known for decades for its endless crawl due to heavy traffic’ (‘the Colwood crawl’) a new highway interchange in that direction was built just to service the resort, with access going directly to it. Putting in this highway interchange required bulldozing forest along the whole route.

Numerous environmentalists fended off police officers and would be loggers for months, risking their time, lives, energy and resources to fight this from happening.

But I guess it was worth it right? Now we can have an expensive non green psychedelic conference at a giant capitalist monstrosity of a resort built over over a recent demolished pristine forest. And that is ‘healing,’ ‘therapy’ ‘moving forward.’ And you can bet a significant amount of the money involved in the conference is going straight to the owners of bear mountain, who will in turn invest it in more environmental destruction/speculation.

This is what I see as happening with the psychedelics movement in general. It is no longer about ecology, but waste, throwing a big party without any care for the environmental consequences, spending as much money as possible and acting like rock stars. The nexus of this could be said to be burning man, now a parody of itself, which should adopt as its official motto: “the greatest show on earth.” There is nothing Green about burning man and just like anything at bear mountain, the thousands and thousands of dollars involved aka big business are often heading straight to the man.

The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror VIII


It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
