    "Be three feet back of your head."

    LOL. I'd actually like to have seen him try and spin that roulette ball properly as well. It's more difficult than it looks, even for wannabe OT's.

    Massive croupier out-tech displayed here HH. Left hand on the wheel rim? Totally out of order. :biggrin:

    Still wouldn't help you, you'd need to know what the next card out of the shoe was to gain any advantage - stratty - ex blackjack dealer. :D

    "Be three feet back of your head."

    Old Mimsey is always talking about unexplained shit and things that go bump in the night, and I always say to him, look, quantum physics is about as weird as anything can get, what more do you need? :biggrin:

    "Be three feet back of your head."

    If it is possible to do, why does it have to be surrounded by all this mystical mumbo-jumbo or fasting or thinking right thoughts or preparing your mind in some way? Why should one have to go through all that stuff first? Do you see what I'm trying to get at?

    Does anybody here think there is a Bridge To Total Freedom?

    Yeah, thanks for that. I know what an HCOB is, I was a class IV auditor back in the day.

    No harm in posting this for the thousandth time ... Open Google and type: site:exscn.net [what you are searching for] (Ignore the brackets). Bob's yer uncle! I'll be sending you the bill for my services shortly. Oops, I see Enthetan got there first. Doh!

    Does anybody here think there is a Bridge To Total Freedom?

    The scientology you knew, with these six-month security checks and astronomical prices for services and the remorseless regging that went with them is totally unlike the the one I knew. I was out by the mid-seventies, and so most of this stuff came into effect long after I was gone. I always...

    Well, this track. I promise you (and of course I could look an absolute idiot saying this) I haven't looked at the credits but for me, Richard Wright is all over this song. I absolutely hate most of his work. I've got both of his solo albums and there's precious little I find of merit in them...

    Does anybody here think there is a Bridge To Total Freedom?

    Yes, this video was posted on the old exscn board and I watched it through several times. Absolutely unbelievable the way this woman was treated. She was so trusting and gullible though. Tragic.

    If the people in the restaurant are enjoying the food, it's very good to them whatever the chef in the restaurant thinks, and that's what really matters.

    Yes, you're absolutely right and I've got my timing wrong. Doh! I've always hated it (not that I've listened to it very much - why would I)? Right from the very start with the dodgy time-keeping by Mason it's difficult to listen to, and compared to 'Meddle' it's a bit of a shambles. I don't...

    I've had this idea in my mind for many many years now that PF didn't really do anything meaningful until 'Echoes' came along as far as I was concerned. Listening to the first fifteen minutes of this has done nothing to make me change my mind I have to say.

    A very impressive rendition IMO! There are loads and loads of these around with the notes illuminated so you can see what's being played (if you need to). It's how I learned 'Clair de Lune). :D

    It was always a problem back in the sixties when I was learning the piano. Unless you had a record deck with a stroboscope or you could vary the speed of it it was difficult to get in tune. These days of course synths are always perfectly A = 440 Hz (unless you want to change it of course).

    It must have been a fantastic coincidence that the piano and the music from the turntable were perfectly in tune with one another. It would have sounded horrendous if they weren't, I'm thinking.

    Mooji Answers — The Master Key to All Problems

    Me too. At the time I experienced the above it felt like a 'spiritual' phenomenon, but in the same decade I took LSD and learned that their is only a very thin veil between what we normally experience as 'reality' and something radically different. It only takes a subtle rebalancing of the...

    Mooji Answers — The Master Key to All Problems

    I can't say I ever felt stuck, but this happened about forty-five years ago and it was such a powerful and other-worldly experience that it left a deep impression on me that has lasted to this day.

    The first time I heard this song was just a few weeks ago. I've played it several times since then, enough times to be able to tell whether or not I'm hearing exactly the same version here. It's identical, and since the song was recorded in a recording studio and here the boys are definitely not...
