I strongly believe that culture has a crucial function in the society. Something much more important than pure entertainment. Art, music, expressing yourself is basic human, and it is absolutely crucial for the human mind to stay in balance, and for the human society to function. Whatever is happening in our society in the west right now has to do with underestimating the importance of culture. There is a huge imbalance between elite culture and the individuals’ needs. On the communities and individuals level very little is supported by the political and financial powerholders.
In my community in West-Sweden whenever it is about getting financial support for a cultural event, I often here this answer: we have to prioritize healthcare, school and basic communal services. It is pure shortsightedness not to realize, the health of citizens depends on lack of culture – not in the sense of entertainment, but more self-expression and wholeness.
According to integral theory‘s aesthetic research, “beauty” is integral part of a human being. In order to function as a whole, this part of us must be activated.
I’m certain about the healing effect of music, art, movement (dance), bibliotherapy, even taking part in theater (dramatherapy).
Audun Myskja, Norwegian consultant, specialist in general medicine, specialist in neurological music therapy, author and musician is a great example how it works with music therapy.
The article about him and his methods are presented in an article recently published at Alternative.no. Audun Myskja suggests music can often have better results than pills in certain cases (for ex. dementia).
I’m not against pills, don’t misunderstand me, but what I can see is a big pharmaceutical industry which is built up on wrong attitude and desperate patients. Our attitude to illness, especial mental illness is rather limited.
I would like to see more effort and money in supporting now so called alternative therapy such as culture.
I’m aware of the wrong associations to the word “alternative” itself. I myself would call certain therapies (music therapy in this case) traditional. Simply because for example music was long before any synthetic pills. And because “alternative” can suggest, music is an alternative to pills. It’s not alternative to anything, music is there from the beginning in all of us. Pills can be an alternative in certain cases, a good alternative. But for god’s sake, try the traditional methods first.
It is utterly boastful to close the doors for traditional methods and basic human needs in the name of economy.
Thank you for the music!

This is a reminder that those million lives we have already lived are not the past but the present: they are here and now. They cannot be ignored, denied, silenced or simply locked up in a chest of drawers called Past or Previous Reincarnations. They cannot be left alone, because left alone they can do horrible things – like teenagers left alone without any task. These million lives have no consciousness in the present, but we are able to make them conscious, to give them tasks. Because it is not a coincidence that they are here. That we experience directly is only the surface of the iceberg, that we are carrying under water is also us.
Whales, skates, seals and other aquatic creatures are able to see what we cannot see only feel: it’s huge and heavy, it’s holding a whole ice surface on the surface of the water . I’m not listening to either the seamen or the seers. I’m listening to the songs of the whales, the delicate vibration os the wings of the skates, and what distance do the school of herrings swimming from me. The border of the million lives is approximately there.
I’ve purchased a sonar. It may be useful. But eventually, you can learn how to hear the sound vibrations with naked ears.
Think that the completeness, that which is already here and now, just we cannot hear it, can be made conscious with improving hearing.
Scratching the surface from down under.

Do I have to teach you?
Legal responsibility and conscience is not the same.
Others’ life quality is not your legal responsibility, no, but it has an impact on your (guilt)consciousness.
It is called compassion. It can be found deep in the most evil murderer. It wakes up if time comes even in the most cruel human being.
Although madness can be an exception.

How did Pilate get into the Credo? – could we ask as well a week ago when in one of Hungary’s prominent daily newpapers the name panno.se appeared.
On that day the daily statistics for panno.se looked surprisingly high. Way too many visitors for a sunny Saturday morning. Not that it was bad in any way, but of course it makes one curious. It could be clearly seen that the incoming link is from the major left-leaning Hungarian newspaper, Népszabadság. No big surprise either since our editor, Judit Szeles occasionally send in articles to one of the blogs at Népszabadság – to Tükör (Mirror). When tracking back the article mentioning our website, nevertheless a smaller astonishment hit the place.
It was the article about the shaman of Tuva Republic officially visiting Hungary on Hungary’s national day: 15th March. Gusztáv Megyesi – ex-editor in chief at Élet és Irodalom, now editor and columnist – quoted Jacek Hugo-Bader from our article Sámánok közt (Among shamans, in HU). I myself have been a reader of Megyesi’s articles since I was a child and I like his satirical writings. So no wonder I became overly excited about him mentioning my “tiny, little” website, panno.se. And it seems I am probably the only one reporting about the Polish journalist’s, Jacek Hugo-Bader book about his adventures in Siberia ( White Fever ). There was a chapter translated into Hungarian in a now not existing weekly (ed. Csontos János), which I happened to read and mentioned in a blog entry. And a short paragraph got saved from the media storm in Hungary.
This made it possible to increase the number of visitors on our home site for the entire weekend and even some more days. Good that some curious readers takes the trouble to track the links and check the original sources. Some of them might well be interested in topics panno.se is providing. Being quoted or linked to other sites makes possible that one can find sites of her or his interest.
