"The pack mentality has been forced upon the media-guzzling masses through the paradigms prescribed in sports, politics, organized religion, and so forth. Those that subscribe digress from divine prospects for the social conveniences of partisanship. As a result, they too receive a narrower field-of-view, cognitively speaking.

Fanboyism is nothing more than consumer-grade identity fundamentalism; one adopted through corporate propagation along often-tapped media outlets. The means: innermost advertising.

The hive mindset we have adopted stems from the presence of multiple systems of hierarchy in the social, fiscal, governmental, and occupational realms of our daily distraction.

The reassurance of the wage-slave state of mind is one of subtlty.

The way in which the unseen Shadow dictates most of our lives is through the gross availability of distraction -- hampering the potential for even the mere idea of creative thought.

We are always looking forward -- never turning a head up to the possibilities above nor lowering our eyes to the path we currently trek; far too often glancing back with no intention of avoiding recourse.

The necessary vicissitude begins at home, in you. As Mahatma Ghandi once said, 'you must be the change you want to see in the world.'

Live by example and along the way, even when you falter, singular purpose shall unveil itself." ~ Mahatma Dalí

Another Digitalisman Revision; this time with "All Glory to the Hypnotoad". Enjoy and explore the sonic depths!

(Warning: "All Glory to the Hypnotoad" is a sub-drone. Meaning, most of the used frequencies fall into the range covered by your sub-woofers. That said, this is something that is certainly felt more than heard.)

The Five Meritocratic Principles
NO NEPOTISM
1) It's not who your parents are, it's who you are.

NO CRONYISM
2) It's not what others can do for you, it's what you can do.

NO DISCRIMINATION
3) Sex, race, religion, age, background are irrelevant. Talent is everything.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES
4) You start from the same point as everyone else, and you go as far as your talents take you.

REWARDING MERIT
5) The highest rewards for the highest achievers.


Aims (Context used associated with UK)
1) To implement the five Meritocratic Principles.

2) To abolish the monarchy since it contradicts the first Meritocratic Principle. In a monarchy, the only thing that matter is the identity of your parents. In a meritocracy, your parents are irrelevant. The advent of meritocracy is accompanied by the automatic abolition of the monarchy. No meritocrat would seek the 'permission' of a monarch to govern.

3) To abolish the House of Lords (the House of Cronyism), which contradicts the second Meritocratic Principle since it's the product of patronage. In a properly constituted meritocratic system, there is no requirement for a second House.

4) To abolish Party Politics. Political parties are irrelevant in a meritocratic system. Parliament will be populated entirely by independent MPs with no set political affiliations.

5) Each independent MP is selected on the basis of their merit relating to their field of expertise. So, the Chancellor of the Exchequer is selected from amongst practising economists (and will be elected only by other economists). The Secretary of State for Health will be someone who works in the health field (and is elected only by health workers); the Secretary for Defence will be from the armed forces; the Foreign Secretary a serving official in the Foreign Office; the Secretary of State for Education a serving teacher/headmaster/lecturer. In other words, MPs in the House of Commons won't represent a political party or a geographical constituency, but a particular field in which they have demonstrable experience, expertise and merit; and their constituents/voters will be people in the same field who can make an informed decision about their ability.

6) The Prime Minister will be elected by the MPs from amongst their number. Every five years, there will be a general election in which every MP has to seek the endorsement of their voters, or be replaced.

7) To abolish Cabinet Collective Responsibility. The principle that people should promote views with which they privately disagree is absurd and ipso facto brings politicians into disrepute. Why haven't they resigned if they disagree with a policy? How can they defend a position that they themselves don't believe in? If they publicly support a policy they privately reject, they are hypocrites.

8) Critiques of government policy will be provided by select committees of MPs. Special committees comprising scientists and philosophers may also be used, chosen because of their critical-thinking abilities and their expertise in challenging assumptions. Committees of artists, entrepreneurs and designers may also be called upon. Pressure groups will be given a prominent voice too since meritocracy welcomes close scrutiny. [UK]

9) To abolish the 'moralizing' approach to politics (what's 'right' and what's 'wrong' - the politics of principle) in favour of the scientific method (what works and what doesn't - the politics of pragmatism).

10) To increase Inheritance Tax to 100%. No one should be able to posthumously transfer an advantage to another person of their choosing. The state should acquire all of the assets of the deceased and should allocate them on a meritocratic basis.

11) Education is the bedrock of merit, and should be accorded the highest importance in the meritocratic state. The current education system is a demonstrable failure and should be overhauled in every respect. Our education system is designed to produce shoppers (these being what capitalist democracies require to sustain their economic model). True education is the opposite of shopping. It liberates the mind, not the credit card.

12) To promote the ideas of the most radical, free-thinking, independently-minded philosophers e.g. Nietzsche, Baudrillard, Rousseau, Diogenes, Camus, the Situationist International.

13) To provide community-based alternatives to the family (based, for example, on the Kibbutz model) so that if a family fails, its members aren't cast into the costly and counter-productive hell of state care.

Story
Tagline
Dark Ambient Producer (Meditative/Antimeditative)
Introduction
Mahatma Dalí, a composer of vanishing-point music, strives to provide the masses with a unique listening experience. While the sustained tone branch of minimalist music is about as far away from music as it can get before it ceases to be musical, there is something undeniably rhythmic and hypnotic about it -- the very things M. Dalí accentuates on.
 
The harmonic (and quasi-harmonic) tone-clusters that culminate M. Dalí's brand of dronology are riveting in a way that becomes increasingly difficult to describe as it plays out. When you couple this with the conceptual soundscapes that they articulate within, you'll find what the ear would otherwise dismiss as tumultuous becomes a sonic scenery wherein which your imagination is the only limiting factor in this auditory experience.
