That combination of Colors reminds me of something
That combination of Colors reminds me of something

For those who want to make the world a better place, there are various paths to travel. If you take a look at the articles on World Mathaba you can get an idea of quite a few possible roads to take. One route is to inform people about the way we are being fooled and manipulated: explain to people how the media are being used to make you think in a certain direction and to stop you from knowing the real truth. The geo-political dynam...

Can we alter the strength of a certain timeline?
Can we alter the strength of a certain timeline?

I remember this Star Trek episode in which a group of rather unkind beings had phenomenal abilities to see into the future. They had this grand hall filled with 'clouds', where each cloud portrayed a particular timeline, or a certain turn of events. At a certain stage they were very pleased with their future, because nearly all possible timelines in these clouds showed an outcome that would grant these beings absolute power over a cer...

To Honor the Vital Role of the Ego

A life without the ego, is like a pub with no beer

INTRODUCTION
When trying to get a grasp on the world and the people in it, there are numerous perspectives that you can adopt. You could go for one of the world religions, which I am inclined to see as 'all-in-one'-packages, meaning that they provide a whole set of relatively fixed ways to regard life in various areas.

If you don't opt for the big religions, you could decide to make your own set of ideas and views towards life. You ar...

The Human Tendency to Defend and Protect its own Truth

The relativity of our own truths (drawing by M.C. Escher)
The relativity of our own truths (drawing by M.C. Escher)

In a number of articles I have tried to focus on our personal responsibility to effect change. I believe that before any true and external revolution can take hold, the revolutionaries should invest time in working on their own inner revolution. This article tries to explore our tendency to hold on to our own version of what we think is the truth, despite almost everything.

I would like to encourage the readers of World Mathab...

Touching the Divine

Divinity within reach?
Divinity within reach?

Through various articles on World Mathaba I'm trying to explore ways to not only move against the current distortions we have created on our planet, but also to find new ways of improving our mode of interaction with the world.

In order to move away from selfish habits like greed and the lust for power, it makes sense to work out perspectives that provide viable alternatives to these deeply ingrained habits.

If we were to focus our minds on different matters the...

War in Heaven and the Exploitation through Religion

Obedience to God/Allah/Jahweh is often important in religion. But why?
Obedience to God/Allah/Jahweh is often important in religion. But why?

My father used to say that many wars are the result of religions fighting each other. His solution was the immediate abolishment of all world-wide religions. I think that such a solution would be a bit too simple. For religion has many good attributes, like giving advice on how to live peacefully with each other, and to respect other people and their approach to life.

A decade ago I ran into a book that shifted my...

Questioning a 2010 Rumour about Julian Assange being some 'Rothschild Puppet'

Mark Stephens (left) was Julian Assange's Lawyer for about 8 months

Prompted by a discussion after the publication of an article on Julian Assange at World Mathaba in November 2012 (1), I decided to delve a bit deeper into a rumour that was launched in december 2010 by someone on a forum (2), which was quoted by radios.cz. This rumour claims that because Julian Assange hired a lawyer whose firm also defends Rothschilds interests, Julian Assange would therefore be a Rothschilds Puppe...

Shia and Sunni Muslims to Meet Each Other in a Love Embrace

Kindness during Eid-Prayers

As a non-muslim European who is getting fed up with watching all these people kill each other every day (1), I would like to make some kind of contribution to create something different. I have lost my faith in the kind of facebook-internet-activism in which you click or shout out against something in a comment. Like Icke eloquently said during a recent meeting in London (2), it's time to do more than just spread your anger or fear, it's time to look for different approaches and think beyond...

Creating a Personal Dance with the News

Posted by W. Aterput on Wednesday, January 23, 2013, In : Reflections 

Let's start off by saying that I'm no political expert on the Middle East. Although I have been actively following the events in the region, since NATO's war on Libya, I come across new elements on a regular basis. As a writer on this platform it could be tempting to try and compete with the famous voices in the anti-imperialistic movement, like Salbuchi, Finningham, Cartalucci etc.  

Wouldn't it be great to give an analysis that stirs a new debate and leads to wonderful new insights with ma...

Trying to move beyond Imperialism vs anti-Imperialism

Posted by W. Aterput on Thursday, January 17, 2013, In : Reflections 

I have been actively following and writing about the ways Libya and Syria have become preys of the neo-colonial powers. I became aware of how biased the western media are when it comes to these 'wars' on nations that oppose the western hegemony. I felt the urge to try and present the opposing view on these matters as much as possible. Let the world know that there is another perspective than the one fed to us by the main stream media.

Fortunately we have internet now, which allows us to spread...
