Somewhere between a drunken jazz bar and an intergalactic spaceship populated by gyrating extra-terrestrials - MANDELBLUES is the kind of music they would have played at Chalmun's Cantina on Tattooine if George Lucas had heard of dubstep in the seventies.

A new tangent for the glitch wookie known as HEYOKA, hailing from California, West Alpha Centauri, from his latest fractal powered bag o' tunes MANDELBASS

Revolution 2.0 > Mark Heley

Revolution 2.0

> by Mark Heley >Art by Andrew Jones


Social media is often described as a 'revolution', but in Egypt, this appears to literally be coming true. Wael Ghonim, the Google executive credited for creating the Facebook page that first called for the protests on January 25th, has emerged as the first genuine 'face' of the movement he helped catalyse. After re-emerging from being held by the Egyptian authorities for ten days, most of the time blindfolded, he received a hero's welcome in Cairo's Tahrir Square. In his recent CNN interview, (whilst carefully making it clear that 'This is not about me', but rather the Egyptian people) it is clear that Ghonim's articulate -- and tech savvy -- passion is making him an icon of the revolution.

2012: Time for Change documentary in Australia

| | | | | | | | | | |

 Undergrowth is pleased to announce the next Australian public screenings of the documentary 2012: Time for Change in DARWIN and BRISBANE (see below).


In this time of rapid ecological, economic and consciousness change-before-our-eyes, it is more important than ever to have a positive vision of the future, a roadmap that shows us how things really are, and guides us towards where we want to be.

“2012: Time for Change” presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee Joao Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck, author of the bestselling 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, on a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolutions, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

Like a flash of lightning and in an instant the truth was revealed. I drew with a stick on the sand the diagrams of my motor. A thousand secrets of nature which I might have stumbled upon accidentally I would have given for that one which I had wrestled from her against all odds and at the peril of my existence.

- Nikola Tesla



What is consciousness, and where does it come from? In this provocative lecture given at EntheoGenesis Australis  in Dec, 2010, experiential journalist Rak Razam discusses the nature of consciousness that is underpinning the current global shamanic resurgence and planetary awakening. As Richard Maurice Bucke said in his influential book from the turn of the 20th century, Cosmic Consciousness is a heightened perception of awareness above and beyond normal consciousness, illustrated through figures from history like the Buddha and others who claimed to have experienced mystic states. But what about the widespread shamanic ability indigenous and now the West is experiencing that often gives glimpses of this cosmic connection? What larger species vectors can be drawn from the rising tide of consciousness across the planet and the history books? Is the once sporadic peaking of consciousness in the genepool now a species-wide activation? Like a cosmic season, are we entering the summer of the soul, the tide of galactic history dovetailing with the celestial grand orbit of our solar system? Prepare to be illuminated in this critical philosophic podcast that grounds many esoteric and New Age ideas with modern science and current affairs...

Roadtrip through Western Pamirs, Tajikistan

| | | | | | | |

The Tajikistan Pamirs are an incredibly remote part of the world. To get there you either need to drive for 16 hours (sometimes 20) from Dushanbe (Tajikistan's capital city), on a road that makes a milkshake seem tame or you can take a tiny plane that doesn’t quite get up above 6000m cliff faces. Despite the horror stories, the flight was worth it. Looking out the window to the south, the Hindu Kush mountain range of Afghanistan was clearly visible and at times too close!

After notably fuelling the car in Khorog for our 600km journey, we took off South towards the Wakhan Valley. This fertile valley has been inhabited and used as a Silk road trade route for centuries and is littered with archaeological markers. Age old petroglyphs, 3rd century BC Forts, Buddhist stupas and hermit caves, Islamic mausoleums, and burnt out army tanks document the valley’s colourful history.
