One of the main activities of the shaven headed Destenites is maintaining blogs, websites, Facebook pages and social networking groups, uploading videos to YouTube accounts and commenting on them, all in order to promote Desteni on behalf of Bernard Poolman.
Desteni itself can be considered as an elaborate form of spamming. Key words, phrases and slogans are repeated to no end in text and video uploaded to websites and any freebie blogs and social networking services available.
A website such as the "Equal Life Magazine" at [equallifemagazine.net
] might appear to represent a grass-roots, activist cause perhaps in the mode of AdBusters [www.adbusters.org
] (the design of which website it appears to be modelled after), but is just another means of spamming the Internet with Desteni keywords.
One of the most prominent representatives of Desteni is Daryll Thomas. He carries out tedious pseudo-academic research studies on behalf of the Desteni cause, videos of which can be viewed at [www.youtube.com
Daryll Thomas' blog at [darrylthomas.wordpress.com
] links to various other blogs which, like all Desteni-related material, repeat the same slogans ("self honesty", "self forgiveness", "common sense" "equality and oneness" etc). There are the obligatory references to the evils of crime, war, child abuse, starvation etc and how these problems should be rectified by means of the repetition of slogans such as "Equality and Oneness" as well as pointless lists, "Writing yourself to freedom" beginning with "I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to ... " There are descriptions of psychological or social dilemmas the writers seem to imagine will be dealt with by further repetition of more Desteni slogans and by shaving their heads and sleeping only 4-6 hours a night.
On YouTube, the names of famous personages such as Audrey Hepburn, Osho, Adolf Hitler, Mother Teresa, Marilyn Monroe, Buddha, Kurt Cobain, Anton La Vey, Jesus, Aleister Crowley, JonBenét Ramsey, Edgar Cayce, Alice A. Bailey, Terence McKenna et al help to increase hits to videos of the Poolman protege, Sunette Spies. It was Sunette's spamming of YouTube that helped to establish desteni.co.za from the start, which is by the way registered as a commercial website.
As has been admitted by Destenites earlier in this thread, whether or not Sunette is genuinely supposed to be speaking as those individuals is of no consequence. Therefore, the use of those names is only in order to try and get the attention of YouTube viewers who might enter them as search terms.
Desteni is a vehicle for Bernard Poolman's deranged fantasies and deluded or fake opinions; nothing more. Whether he imagines or thinks that his ideas are meaningful or true is neither here nor there. The point is to try and fascinate other people via the Internet so that he can dictate the course of their lives for them.
Essentially, anyone participating in the Desteni "process" is having their vocabulary monopolized by Bernard Poolman. They are made to feel it is their duty to indulge in spamming on his behalf. Poolman has no genuine interest in helping to solve problems of war, crime or starvation. If he did then there would be evidence of it somewhere. The only evidence is that his written or spoken references to such things are in order to appeal to the moral sensibilities of his actual or potential subscribers who are then expected to merely copy his phraseology and repeat it to no end. There is no evidence that anyone else's views are of any relevance in Desteni except in as much as they corroborate with or enhance Poolman's.
The purpose of Desteni is to get people to pay out thousands of Euros to work on the Desteni Farm and get some "Structural Resonance Training" in the form of pseudoscientific muscle testing while having their vocabulary "purified" with yet more meaningless jargon and false ideas invented or appropriated by Bernard Poolman. However, what actually happens in that situation remains to be seen, but it is only a matter of time.
