PARANORMAL OPEN MIC 
    Taking turns sharing our experiences of the paranormal sort, with a supporting audience of interested neighbors. Come and check it out and maybe share a story from some part of your life.
    Ever meet a ghost, or had an out-of-body experience? Ever meet someone from another dimension, or visit an alternate reality? Telepathic experiences? Lucid dreams? Past life memories?
    "They call it paranormal because it doesn't fit into the standard mainstream scientistic paradigm of what is 'Normal'. Rather than accept that we don't completely understand yet how our reality works, we have created a sort of intellectual ghetto to put evidence of our incomplete understanding, where they can be 'safely' ignored. We have named that ghetto the PARANORMAL" -SWJD

PARANORMAL BRAINSTORM OPEN MIC 
Ever meet a ghost, or had an out-of-body experience? Ever meet someone from another dimension, or another world? Any significant telepathic experiences? Lucid dreams? Past life memories? Precognition? Come and tell your story, or just listen to others telling theirs. Share your thoughts in the discussions that happen. Fun! :-)
    "They call it paranormal because it doesn't fit into the standard mainstream scientistic paradigm we have decided is NORMAL. Rather than accepting that we don't completely understand yet how our reality works, we have created a sort of intellectual ghetto to put these experiences in, where they can be 'safely' ignored. We have named that ghetto PARANORMAL"

   Researcher ANITRA NELSON, Associate Professor at the Centre for Urban Research at RMIT University (Melbourne, Australia), and author of a new book on eco-collaborative living, "Small is Necessary: Shared Living on a Shared Planet" in discussion with DANCING RABBIT ECOVILLAGE, an ingenius scientific alternative-village-scale sustainable living project, robust and growing in rural northeast Missouri. They will talk via Skype about the real ways living together can make us environmentally sustainable by reducing our ecological footprint and increasing community cooperation. Anitra Nelson will be live on our stage and Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage will be live via Skype on our big screen, with a Q & A session to follow.

Eco-collaborative housing covers different forms of sharing from joint/shared households, to sharing land, communes, cohousing, squats and ecovillages. Low impact living and low carbon housing are top of the list for housing futures. Sharing can be more affordable, more convivial and more sociable.

Everyone is welcome to the conversation and discussion afterwards. Also Anitra's books will be available to buy at a discount and Anitra can sign copies.

"FALSE FLAGS" : Teach-in about this powerful and long-relied-upon military deception technique, used globally for centuries for political expediency.

From Wikipedia: A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.

The term "false flag" originally referred to pirate ships that flew flags of countries as a disguise to prevent their victims from fleeing or preparing for battle. Sometimes the flag would remain and the blame for the attack be laid incorrectly on another country. The term today extends beyond naval encounters to include countries that organize attacks on themselves and make the attacks appear to be by enemy nations or terrorists, thus giving the nation that was supposedly attacked a pretext for domestic repression and foreign military aggression.

Operations carried out during peacetime by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, can (by extension) also be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.
