I won’t defend the idiocy of the millennial generation, nor claim that they are poor little victims. If anything it should be the generation with least excuses to be idiots, not with all the technological developments and information being just a click away.
Looking at it deeper though, you start to see a pattern, the millennials just being the latest permutation. If you look for social critiques in all ages (whether they are just moralist fools or discerning intellectuals) you notice that in every single generation there are those who are fucked up beyond recognition in every social strata, some are just skewed perceptions, some are spot on. You even start to notice that since time immemorial older generations complain about the younger ones and claim the world is going to end because of the loose morals of younger generations.
Millennials mask their anxiety and emptiness by losing themselves in their smart phones, social media and circles of pseudo-friends. A young man in the middle ages would mask his anxiety and emptiness by praying to god, being a hard worker and drinking into oblivion with pseudo friends. A hippie would do the same by getting stoned, seeking enlightenment and hugging trees.
We are looking at insanity masking itself into whatever activities fit the social paradigm. In the particular case of Milennials they tend to mask their insanity by an extreme degree of narcissism (even though they like to pretend they are down to earth). There was a blogger who said this was the age of Narcissus and he wasn’t wrong about it and just like previous generation they have a bunch of “informed opinions” made even worse by their training at universities and the like.
There is something which actually makes the situation interesting and maybe even a bit scary, it has an expression in all ages, but I think it is more prominent in this Millenial Generation. That is to say, a spirit of rebellion being hi-jacked and redirected into ways of sedation. In principle, the idea of rebellion is fine and dandy even if it starts with little things such as dress code, but the execution is where it fails miserably.
Boris Mouravieff in his book Gnosis talks about a General Law whose function is to keep things in check, while the Law of Exception allows a few to go in the opposite direction, have this in mind.
Years ago I made a remark which suggested the typical perceptions on teenagers were dead wrong. There’s this “common knowledge” which deem teenagers as being out of control because of hormones, it just a phase which has to be quenched… this is major bullshit and our perception has to be re-framed:
The teenager phase (apart from the self-evident biological changes) is actually a natural immune response against the pretensions of society at large. You could say this is when the Law of Exception has its biggest window of opportunity, but it is only an opportunity, not a guarantee. If anything it should be a phase where proper guidance should be given otherwise the rebellion you see in teenagers could go sideways and become self-destructive. The problem is the older generations have already submitted themselves so in turn they seek to quench this Rebellion, most of time it succeeds and the teenager will be reinserted into the matrix and follow the same sad pathetic script everyone else does: Go to college, find a job, get a woman, marry, reproduce, retire, die. A mechanical life.
The milennials are the logical conclusion of the waves of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s all of those characterized for being periods of rebellion (ultimately they failed), we’ve reached an extreme conclusion where entitlement and political correctness are the norm. Just as a rebellious teenager can be re-directed to become a passive consumer of false ideas of rebellion, so can an entire generation.
A generation which in principle had potential to actually become rebellious in a constructive way, ended up being too stupid to recognize how such spirit can be redirected into mindless narcissism. If religion was the drug of choice for the medieval junkie to mask their anxiety; then technology and mass production has become the Millennial junkie drug of choice to mask the same kind of existential anxiety the medieval humans found themselves experiencing.
The logical conclusion for a humanity which has been escaping itself since the time of the Ancients can only be the Milennials. Often times people look at it as if came out of nowhere, but the reality is that it has been building up since long ago, lack of perception is what prevented people from seeing it coming from miles away. Have a closer look, not just at the milennials, but at human generations through history. The closer we have gotten to modern times, the more things there are to lose ourselves in, to hide, to avoid facing the truth about ourselves.
So now the millenials are the generation which has all kinds of shit to try to numb their pain, more than all the previous generation combined: Smartphones, computers, Starbucks, money, fashion, social protests, best sellers, music concerts, drugs, social media, instant friendships, pretentious romances, universities.
The underlying dynamic keeps repeating itself, it has been the same for thousands of years, the only difference being the variety of options which allows us to turn a blind eye.
Sex is the most prominent example so nowadays our obsession expresses itself in two main contradictory forms: Social and religious morality which is ashamed of the human body so we find ways to demonize it and become asexual because we feel uncomfortable being sexual, in an attempt to become asexual we invoke god or we invoke fat acceptance. The other form is that of constant contact with sexual imagery which most of the time never actualises in the life of people so they try to become asexual by limiting their fantasies and impulses to their own imagination.
A millenial finds himself between these two forms. On one hand he is supposed to be proper and restrain his sexuality, dress code and impeccable behaviour is a must, so he would become pretentious and give moral sermons to those women who are attractive and like to show some skin; on the other hand he is supposed to accept the free flow of sexuality, to not be ashamed by the human body, not to be uptight; so then he would accuse others of being sexually repressed snobs living in the past. No one who has both forms hammered into their minds can remain sane for long.
Either extreme they choose to side with ultimately means they are trying to escape from themselves, thus their persona is being overfed which results in something like having a massive obsession with selfies and taking one of those every 10 seconds and uploading it to social media so other broken people can -as the series Mr. Robot puts it- gloat on trivia masquerading as insight:
It also has to be acknowledged that “their mind” can be very clever. So clever that it even uses “good” to camouflage itself. Good deeds, pure thoughts, good people, etc.
You can see it happenning in big pictures. Take the example of parents who actually believe that sending their children to school is actually beneficial for their children and if that wasn’t enought they also believe it makes them excellent parents. When you apply the skill of observation you can see that it may feel good, that people may believe it’s beneficial, but actually it is highly toxic.
In this example the cons outweight the pros. Yes, kids may learn to read, write and apply basic arithmetic, but along the way they exchange their potential for the “virtue” of absolute obedience. Of course their mind will seduce people and make them believe it is all for their own good.
There are numerous examples which illustrate how “their mind” uses the concept of good and good feelings to destroy people’s psyche. You can see it on the Alternative Circus too with all the spells the celebreties cast on the faithful ones. It sounds good, it feels good so it must be good and so people consume these products and ideas coming out from “their mind”. You could say people fertilize their psyche and the psyches of their off-spring so that “their mind” can reproduce and thrive.
Now this is not to say that something like altruism is an entirely evil concept nor completely useless, but we have to examine if people are applying this idea for the right reasons. Does it feel good? probably. Should we feel good about helping out other people? I don’t see why not… but answering these kind of questions don’t reveal that much so we have to take a deeper look.
Why do people feel good about it?, What factors influence them?, Who is providing the definition of altruism?, are these good intentions really beneficial? Are they fixing things on the short term? what about the long term?.
Sometimes I’ve found that I did “good deeds” because it was a mechanism to cope with my own anxiety, but “their mind” is clever so I was telling myself cute stories to avoid facing the underlying reasons for my “good deeds”. They had nothing to do with a response, but they had everything to do with a reaction to try to patch a psychological crack and thus their mind kept getting bigger and stronger.
“their mind” really hates exposure and so it uses all sort of tactics to avoid being discovered and if it is discovered then the toxic mind will use a different set of tactics, this time to convince the host that it is in their best interests to keep “their mind” alive and well.
Their mind couldn’t care less about morality, that’s just a concept which serves more as a distraction than anything else. Their mind will use ideas of good and bad alike to infiltrate people’s psyche and so you can see a lot of permutations of their mind: Some people become extremely sadistic, some others go on to live the life of saints and help everyone who looks like are in dire need and so they feed co-dependent relationships. “Their Mind” is flexible and makes use of a big scale of greys so you will see different degrees of toxicity.
One of the main aims of “their mind” is make their programs “normal” and “familiar” so that the hosts don’t question them at all because they are supposed to be a natural component of humanity.
It also has to be understood that the exploration of the artificial mind is NOT about suppressing/killing emotions, in fact doing so only feeds it, rather it is about keeping one’s emotions in check. You accomplish it by putting your own emotions under the lens of your mind to gain a deeper understanding of the human psyche (well that’s one of the methods anyway).
As it has been stated: “Their mind” takes over a person’s psyche and implants a behavioural simulacra. Based on my own experience with it, I’d say this psychological virus makes use of very subtle mechanisms to take over. The damage done to the person varies in degree.
The most disturbing aspect of it is the fact that the artificial psyche goes on self-replicating without much opposition. It is normal, familiar and in its insanity it provides people with a lot of emotional security. A toxic emotional security that is. Some people can become extremely anxious in social situations, other people become anxious by being alone. Some people can become extremely sadistic, some become masochistic. The permutations and degrees of severity of this phenomenon are too many to list.
Again, in no way is this “philosophy” telling people to become emotionless droids. Rather it is telling people to watch out for this virus so that it can be sterilized and the Authentic Psyche can unfold.
Oh and the interactions with “their mind” are far from being pretty.
The term “Flyer Mind” was used by Don Juan Matus, the Yaqui shaman who taught or tried to teach shamanism to Carlos Castaneda and it is the term I prefer to use to describe an universal phenomenon along with the term: “their mind” since that’s a remark by Don Juan: “They gave us Their Mind”
These parasitical entities have been observed through the ages and given different names: Flyers, Their Mind, Archons, Demons, Angels, Shadows, Predator, The Devil.
This is not the same as the Ego, in fact I’d say this is one step beyond the Ego.
Inevitably the contemplation of the Flyer Mind also leads to explore how so called reality can be bended.
The following is a recompilation of my writings on the subject, so at times it may seem incoherent. This is a topic which is inter-related to virtually everything in life, so you will also see that I touch on other subjects.
Word of warning: This is subject which triggers a lot of people, so at times I won’t even reply to avoid this from becoming a mess. The ideas of reality control have nothing to do with new age teachings and very little to do with what most so called teachers promote in the alternative scene. There are fine lines between make believe and practical application. I’d recommend to get acquainted with Vernon Howard’s work to have a solid foundation of “reality hack” and not just make believe to justify a mental stupor. Oh and any personal anecdote of mine will just be used as a point of reference to shed light on the subject, nothing more I’m not looking for virtual hugs nor I desire anybody’s “love & light”. Feedback will suffice.
So here it is, to begin a piece which tries to simplify the matter to have a decent foundation to build on:
You can’t explain the psyche with materialistic science. That’s impossible since science is concerned with the study of the material world, while psychology in concerned with the study of the mental. I know that for a mind which is heavily rational (and I don’t mean it in a bad kind of way) it is almost a heresy to claim that something intangible exists for real, it must be always backed up by science as we know it today.
The concept of “their mind” as Don Juan puts it is not some made up fantasy which denies everything that science has contributed to human progress nor is about turning a blind eye to things like some banking empire nor is it denying the existence of psychopaths looking to practice sadism with the rest of the world. It merely tries to illustrate how most, if not all, the fucked up things in this world are the symptoms of a psychological disease.
Let’s kill the wording “their mind” because it simply gets in the way for most people trying to figure out what the hell some people are talking about. I can understand why such words cause an immediate shut down, after all it almost sounds as if “their mind” was some kind of ghosts busters myth.
Let’s think in more familiar terms. If I were to say that X person is possessed by “their mind” then some people would think I was somehow bringing back some paranoia of the middle ages and I may as well call it a satanic possession, but such conclusion couldn’t be further from the truth.
This person who is “possessed” by this mind virus is someone who has gone through a heavy social conditioning over the years to the extent that this person feels very identified with their programming. In their perception; these mental constructs (which someone else build for them) are what give meaning to their life.
If you try to make this person see the truth behind it, then most likely you’ll get a hostile reaction varying in degree. Some may call you crazy, some may even go as far as killing people who oppose these mental programs. But are they the ones in control? are they actually reacting from a place of authenticity? is it their own rage?
How could it be their own reaction when we have concluded that they are the receivers of a pathological social conditioning? Thus the talk about “their mind”. It is the mental programming doing the reaction masquerading as the real person. I understand this can sound paradoxical as hell because the claim is: That person is going bonkers, we can observe it in his/her reactions, but at the same time it is not really him/her.
But then again we’ve seen what happens when a person starts to recognize these programs and proceeds to remove them and manage to handle the ensuing inner conflict. They start to get better to a degree and even their personal life seems to improve somewhat or at least their psychological life does.
By approaching things from another angle, you could say that the ills of the world are the result of serious psychological trauma. That is not to say that there aren’t bankers looking to enrich themselves and the expense of others, that doesn’t mean there aren’t people out there messing things up, that doesn’t mean every single adversity in life the common person finds if of their own doing.
All that is being said is that all those predicaments can be traced back to an origin point which is that of a traumatized psyche which in turn creates an environment suitable for sadism and masochism. These conditions then create mental programs which over time can prey on a vulnerable psyche and in turn infect them with either form of pathology. Still sound too hocus pocus? See it from this perspective:
You have a baby who is a blank slate which facilitates the influence of external forces. Most likely the first external influence the baby will come in contact with are his/her parents. Over time the child will absorb any set of values and beliefs that the parents practice and in turn will emulate these values and the health of his/her psyche will be largely determined by these values or parental conditioning.
Let’s say the child has to grow up in a seriously dysfunctional home. The child will be exposed to pathological mental programs that will impact his psyche in different ways. Over time the child may emulate those programs and become a fucked up adult, perhaps he’ll be sadistic or maybe he’ll be so broken that he’ll bend over to anyone who displays enough force. Isn’t his condition the result of social conditioning? can we really says that’s an authentic person? or is it a seriously traumatized psyche doing whatever it takes to survive?
In this example the child has become “possessed” by the pathological mind of his parents. Of course this is just a figure of speech, if you take it that literally then you have some serious rethinking to do. In psychological terms the child has been exposed to a pathological social conditioning for so long that he feels extremely indented with it and acts accordingly.
The child can be guided through a healing process, but only HE can overcome it, there is room only for one. Now the fact than only he can put himself out of such a mess does not equal a negation of the impact that his parents had on him nor their responsibility, nor does it deny his current condition. Yet we can observe that how this person acted out during his/her life was a symptom of these mental programs running in his psyche.
When we try to break this programming don’t we see similar reactions in people who’ve become heavily invested in their conditioning? they deny their pathology, they will fight tooth and nail to preserve the programming alive because they feel naked without it. In other words they are trying to preserve the mind of their programmers alive because it is what gives meaning to their life, by holding into these programs they also guarantee acceptance amongst those suffering from the same pathology so that they don’t become outsiders.
Think about christian programming. Aren’t there mechanisms in place to make the person feel guilty and scared of questioning his values? let alone leave them behind. To use a metaphor: When “their” mind is threatened it will try to preserve itself.
Had the child been out of the influence of his parents social programs then he’d never have to live with a traumatized psyche. Of course this was a simplified example for practical purposes.
We can project this dynamic on the grand scale where there are more factors at play that just parents. Yes a person is under the influence of pathological programs and there are people who propagate them and in who in all like-hood messed up a person in a direct or indirect way, but at the end of the day, it is up to this person to rise, no one else can do it for him, at most guidance and help can be offered.
Don’t TPTB try to shape the world according to their image? to their mental schemas? aren’t they infecting the world with “their mind”? their pathological mind is what paves the way for wars, famines, ponzi schemes and all that, symptoms of their mind. You may be able to mitigate those symptoms, to patch things up for a few decades, but if the root is not dealt with, then those symptoms will resurface sooner or later… maybe they’ll just manifest in different ways.
So again “their mind” is about identifying the psychological roots of this world’s ills. The psyche is the code while the events out there are the output, by studying both you will see a picture of the whole.
It’s a hard pill to swallow, I know. I’ve been there and still find myself there sometimes. It’s tough to cope with because one day you realize that yes TPTB and everything related to it are harming the world and people suffer, but even then, the real solution lies in each individual taking responsibility which consists in pulling themselves out of the mess they find themselves in even if someone else put them there.
Throught the ages -perhaps it is more prevalent in the modern world- people have been way too worried about sustaining an image of pureness, of appearing a decent human being, casting auras of compassion and moral rectitude. The other dynamic being people wanting their role models and inspirations to be egoless, untainted saints who can do no wrong.
People have been denying their dionysiac impulses -all that which covers our irrational behaviour- especially those concerned with our most base impulses, Sex being the most prominent example anyone could mention.
In a sense, humans have been too concerned with maintining Apollonian schemas . As the ancient Greeks warned: Deny Dionysus and risk his wrath… or as Carl Jung put it:
“Too much of the animal disfigures the civilized human being, too much culture makes a sick animal.”
That is one of the most powerful statements I’ve ever read.
Even many of the so called alternative teachers have “sinned”, that is to say, they have -consciously or unconsciously- denied one of the most fundamental aspects of a human being: His Shadow.
Many like to bury their heads in the sand and pretend that a concept like Shadow is merely concerned with their traumas, about just embracing their mistakes. In a fucked up way, many people rationalize this Shadow reality and manage to create a monster…
By becoming obsessed with the nourishing ” the light side” they blind themselves to their so called inner ugliness:
From religious rightousness and political correctness to positive thinking and oneness, people do everything to commit self-sabotage so they can pretend there is nothing there… you can see this effect trickling down to day-to-day dynamics:
A couple gets together, they crave sex… but they’ve been self-sabotaging from day one so they will pretend they are an examplary couple by denying their crave to themselves, each other and the world that they like sweaty and dirty sex, if anyone talks about sex then tension arises and they have to difuse it by joking about it or guilt tripping so that they don’t have to look at their Dionysiac Shadow, when they finally succumb to their natural animal impulse then sex becomes ackward, a 5 minute affair, a chore… (shit I think I found the cure to premature ejaculation lol).
In a more recent context: A “moderate muslim” who from day one has been over-feeding his most base impulses with tales of extreme violence, but at the same time represses all those dark thoughts, refuses to acknowledge their existence. The result? San Bernardino and ISIS.
This is one of the most fascinating and horrifying dynamics I’ve ever come across .
People have to acknowledge there is a Dark Factor within the human equation, we have to acknowledge our animal side, we must accept that just as we are capable of amazing things, we are also capable of unspeakable actions… of course these are just extreme polar opposites, an invididual mileage may vary from everything in between.
Speaking of Shadows and modern contexts, we should do well to remember that in order for the West to survive the Islamic onslaught we have to look at our Shadow, our Dark side and direct it in an efficient manner to repel the invader. No amount of moral rectitude, compassion, empathy or egolessness is gonna do fuck all against the bearded savages… at this point in time, our discrimination, bigotry and hatred are needed to avoid a potential genocide.
All those politically correct people who think too much of themselves because they are too busy masturbating with delusions of empathy and compassion fail to see the dynamics taking place within societies. All these so called moderate muslims (could be any religion for that matter) are truly irrelevant. They are just peons, useful idiots, lemmings who keep the machine oiled.
Those who cause change (for better or worse) are not “moderate people” “average joes” “normal people” or any other label suggesting a lobotomized sod. Hitler, Mao, Gengis, Lenin, Suleiman weren’t common men. We could argue about who or what was behind them, but that’s beside the point. People with enough brains, ambition and willpower are the shakers and movers of society for better or worse. No one wants to follow a common man, no one gets aroused by Last Men.
So who are the ones who dictate the direction of Islam and its “peaceful” serfs? The extremists, the crazy ones, the bloodthirsty ones, the psychopaths because for all their faults, they have enough Willopower and enough Zeal to become leaders. The “moderate ones” are moderate (irrelevant) for a reason and as their psychological condition befits them, they are just passive observers who go along for the ride.
And what happens once these so called “moderate ones” have been exposed for long enough to the allure of their leaders? San Bernardino happens. Farooq and his repressed wife were “nice muslisms” who all of sudden bursted into flames in a sadomasochistic orgy of bloodlust.
Oh sure we have the priests, the banks, the corporations, the NGO’s and all the evil cabal pushing for those conditions, but the most alarming reality is that people gladly swallow.
The East keeps growing Zealous and Driven warriors while the West keeps growing Beta Lemmings. All your so called compassion and understanding and oneness has given birth to Social Justice Warriors, apologetics, Politically correct weaklings, New Age Fascists, Feminists which in turn has eroded any spirit of resistance even when the invader is at the doors, you will gladly welcome them with open arms because you want to be a shinning example of compassion, you want to prove to your peers how much of a “World Citizen” you are… then you act surprised when you find “moderate muslim” cock in your rear end and your offspring become wives for the bearded savages. Congratulations you just enabled genocide because it didn’t occur to your compassionate heart that the most effective way to destroy an enemy is from within, with few bullets being fired.
Monogamy in itself has never been a real problem. Humans are naturally able to have sex with one or many partners, they can easily have sex with one partner one day and they can have intercourse with twenty the next one. Nature has not imposed any sort of limitations as to how many people we are able to have sex with.
What we should really look at is at what is behind the strongest perception of Monogamy. That takes us to the subjects of morality and the institutions which shape morality. Probably the biggest influence on the idea of morality has been organized religion, an institution made up of schizophrenic and psychopathic (non?) wankers who are disgusted by their own natural impulses.
After thousands of years of social conditioning, society has finally internalized what monogamy should be (hell even some atheists follow protocol). Add to this the influence of the Hyperreality created by the media where everything is glossy and perfect and you end up with a seriously f.ucked up population that couldn’t be bothered to re-evaluate the meaning of Monogamy.
What is Monogamy in its raw form? an erotic/romantic relationship where 2 people agree to become exclusive, nothing more, nothing less. Now that’s fine, but if we want to gain useful insights then we need to dig deeper and look at the reasons as to why people enter into a monogamous relationship.
Well most people are under the spell of cultural Monogamy which has been shaped by organized religions and frustrated conservatives. Most people do it because… well it’s tradition, it’s what everyone does and has been doing for ages…. so we guess we should do it too because…. *brain malfunction, unable to compute more complex ideas*
So most people are recreating a toxic idea without even asking themselves if that’s what they really should be doing. Add to this the fact that a lot of people are highly insecure about themselves (the reasons are beside the point right now) and you get a perfect recipe for glorious disaster.
But if Monogamy is practiced for the right reasons then I think it can be a healthy and wonderful experience. If you have two people who are not needy and with some inner integrity then I don’t see why it couldn’t work. Oh and it helps to draw boundaries since the beginning just to be able to decide if the relationship if for you. Even better if the couple is able to see most soap operas, movies, commercials, etc. for what they are: Delusional Bullshit.
How long should a monogamous relationship last? the toxic institutions would have you believe it is forever and beyond death no matter what, but a healthy person should be able to conclude that they can’t really fix an expiration date. Depending on the attitude of each partner and circumstances beyond each one of them; it may be able to last until a partner dies of old age or maybe it will last a few months or some years. If the couple can make peace with that fact, then I’d say the probabilities for a healthy Monogamous relationship can increase.
Language is one of my main interests and I do think Language should be studied, not just written or spoken language, there is also emotional language, symbolic language, body language, etc. so please, do have this present in your mind while you read my post.
I can’t stress enough the importance of getting into touch with language, getting to know its impact on consciousness is vital, for knowing language can help you develop immunity towards mad forces: bullies, psychopaths, con artists… even the grand schemes on TPTB (The Powers That Be), not only that but language can also empower yourself or your Self. It is as scientific as it is magical, it can uplift your spirit or it can make you a slave. “Know them by their words”.
In this current plane or layer of existence, language seems to be almost intrinsic to our very being, different sounds put together as to have meaning, from the warrior’s war cry leading his companions into battle, to the sublime poems by Khalil Gibran… from the simple beat of drums to the “classical” masterpieces. It allows us to have common understanding, it allows us to share deep thoughts, it can be a means to carry out your will. A blacksmith uses hammer and anvil to shape his visions into stunning armor, a wordsmith uses language to shape reality.
Sometimes language seems to reasonate with some intuitive understanding, other times it reasonates with toxic programming. Some words seem to be more magical, mystifying, triggering reactions within us almost instantly: Wonder, fear, compassion, love, doubt, suspicion, anger, anxiety, calmness, hope, happiness. Have you noticed the effect those words I used as an example have on you?, what effect would they have if I were to read them aloud for you? what effect would cause if I were to speak them while giving “Wonder” a tone of wonder, “Compassion” a tone of compassion, “Anxiety” an axious tone… you get the idea.
In ancient times those who were masters of language were both respected and feared, I sense a master of language could shape the minds of people… a master of language with enough will could build an empire, it doesn’t have to be a geographical empire, ideological empires exist too, sometimes those ideological empires have gone out to conquer lands and enslave people. A master of language could send echoes which defy time barriers and burn deep into some people as to raise their consciousness, their awareness.
Sadly, this power has been lost to most of humanity, in part due to a psychopathic empire of death, in part due to people’s ignorance or stupidity. The Empire has known that language is capable of making millions bow before a few, it is capable of toppling empires, capable of winning allies, capable of uncovering riches… aye, the empire has known the power of language for millennia at least and it doesn’t want you to use the power of language.
In the Lord of the Rings film -The Two Towers to be precise- there’s a scene where Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli enter into the Fangorn Forest to look for Merry and Pippin. At some point they think Saruman is closing on them and Aragorn says: “Do not let him speak, he will put a spell on us”. With all the power Saruman possesses… his mastery of language is what the three heroes fear the most, his incantations which will let him take over their minds.
Saruman the master of grimoires, of spelling, books of spells, spelling is part of grammar. Have a good look at the following video:
(See I think Alan Moore is -at the very least- an expert in some of the different expressions of language.)
Indeed, the architects of the dreamscape, as Jim Keith pointed out:
Here stands the New Man, his mind and body stolen from him, his soul reduced to the impulses of the animal he thinks he is. His conception of reality is a dance of electronic images fired into his forebrain, a gossamer construction of his masters, designed so that he will not under any circumstances perceive the actual. His happiness is delivered to him through a tube or an electronic connection. His God lurks behind an electronic curtain; when the curtain is pulled away we find the CIA sorcerer, the media manipulator, the cyberneticist, the weaver of the Dreamscape.
So you can see the empire knows language can send electronic impulses to people’s brain, this is a more methodological form of sorcery… the use of symbolic language to rape your very consciousness. You are being pulled into an energetic field which the incantations of sorcerers have created:
There are different variants and degrees to this, usually it’s given some mysterious aura, but it’s quite simple once you start to explore it.
Think about mass mind control, people rallying behind a political figure… I’ll use Obama as an example. The guy has charisma and a way with words, combined they can be very powerful because he can tap into the minds and emotions of the common folk, he will use and repeat key words to put people in trance… this is his incantation: “Yes we can”, at first it would seem nothing more than a political slogan, but if you study psychology for a while (no, you don’t need to spend 4 years in some university) you find this little mantra does have power. It targets the expectations of people (hope), it makes them feel ok about a toxic hive mind (we can, we can).
What follows after this whole process is the submission of people’s minds and self-responsibility, now Obama is in charge, he’s become the daddy figure. You can see this same dynamic in organized religions, see catholicism for instance… the priest will give the people an incantation to repeat, say “Our Father”… people repeat this trought their life without giving it any thought, they have surrendered their minds to this symbol of god and guess who controls the symbol? well the ones who are in charge of infecting the world with catholicism.
There are more things which are connected with this, I only gave a narrowed view for practical purposes… for example if you attend to a catholic mass you can see there is a special tone of voice for these incantations, the architecture in temples is specific for it amplifies the voice of the priest and gives it a mystifying aura, repetition is a key element. I’m sure you can see this mind control going on at a catholic mass. In ancient times, some people would call this brainwashing “sorcery” it was a magical term, nowadays there is a more scientific term “mass psychology” or “mass mind control”. I like to work with both magical and scientific terms.
Masses are very ritualistic and magical, in this particular video the priest not only spells phrases, but he goes as far as to sing the spell. This is done because musical language can bypass the logical Self more easily, it is very emotional too so the audience has been hooked. This is done to put you down, to numb your rebellious spirit.
Or you can use language in a passionate and poetic fashion, to raise consciousness, just like Bruce Lee did:
Or even to encourage people to think:
This is not a superficial essay which provides easy tips so you can escape Anger, if you are looking for that kind of stuff, then you came to the wrong place.
The way I see it, there are two things that these so called spiritual circles have completely demonized. One is Anger and the other one is Judgement. I’ll only jump into the topic of Anger for now.
I for one don’t subscribe to the “spiritual romanticism” which seems to be a trend within the new age and alternative media circles. In my eyes it is taken to an extreme degree, as in a method to try to escape the pain that living in this cesspool of a world can bring. It is understandable to a degree that people seek to get rid of that pain, it’s not something orgasmic by any means.
Oftentimes Anger is seen as something destructive, even sadistic. Yes it can become a toxic aspect and consume everything around it, there have been and there are people walking the planet who are consumed by this toxic expression and they even drag others down. Perhaps the most common example would be The Powers That Be.
But Anger can be legitimate (at least a large portion is, I suspect). Think about a child who happens to be born into a very neurotic family who forces him/her to do things and conform to norms which kill the healthy rebelliousness and creativity within the child. It is only natural that the child will develop a very legitimate hatred towards the family. Later on the individual in question finds himself/herself at a critical point, yes there is this legitimate Anger, but the established institutions will promote all kinds of methods to pacify this Anger. The individual is then confronted by forces which seem to be far more powerful than him/her, if this person tries to fight those forces then it is very likely that failure will follow and in this current system the idea of survival is being shoved down our throats every passing hour, so it is very likely that the Angry individual comes face to face with the idea and the probability of his/her own demise.
Since this person can’t express that anger towards anyone (even if the targets deserve it) then he/she will project this Anger towards himself/herself. At first this Anger will be nothing more than a burning desire being frustrated, but eventually it will become poison because the person in question doesn’t know how to sublimate it and maybe he/she doesn’t even have available channels to express it. At this critical point Anger can transform into Sadism which can be projected inwardly or it can also be directed at beings which are weaker than the individual in question. There are various degrees to this, from the strict parent to the abusive one.
Ideally there should be available Knowledge which provides ideas as to how transmute this Anger. Sadly most suggestions found within modern society are idiotic ideas which only serve to mask this Anger for a while, from stupid Life Coaching to medications… and then there are these so called spiritual disciplines which fail to provide a proper distillation of the human psyche and you end up seeing people who are desperate to eradicate their mind because someone who is always smiling told them that the root of their suffering is their very mind.
Firstly there should be methods which explore how a person can develop such destructive anger. Thankfully there are a number of those available, two of them being existential psychology and psychoanalysis (when applied properly, of course). When the person understands that not all of his Anger is the result of some boogeyman idea promoted by society, but a legitimate force, he/she can proceed to refine it and find healthy ways of expression and sublimation.
A sublimated Anger can result in a force which seeks to destroy the lies build by TPTB and neurotic societies. The idea of destruction is not a 100% toxic, like Anger, it has healthy elements. This sublimated Anger can lead to the pursuit of Truth and Truth can be a destructive force which shatters the Lie. This in turn can give place to proven or new creative processes to regain sanity and to truly improve the human condition.
Now all this can bring another type of suffering which to me seems to be rooted in Compassion rather than the suffering brought by an Empty Life. You are aware of the pathological forces pushing down your fellow humans and of the creative possibilities. You try to communicate your new discoveries to those who are suffering the symptoms of an Empty Life, only to be rejected and ridiculed.
This is another crucial point, Will and Courage are required so you don’t fall into another toxic loop. If you are not Vigilant enough, you could find yourself in a situation which Erich Fromm described brilliantly… oh and I’ll add a quote by Ayn Rand, which I may be taking out of context since I haven’t read her works and I know she’s a controversial figure:
The thinking child is not antisocial (he is, in fact, the only type of child – or adult – fit for social relationships). When he develops his first values and conscious convictions, particularly as he approaches adolescence, he feels an intense desire to share them with a friend who would understand him; if frustrated, he feels an acute sense of loneliness. (Loneliness is specifically the experience of this type of child – or adult; it is the experience of those who have something to offer. The emotion that drives conformists to “belong” is not loneliness, but fear – the fear of intellectual independence and responsibility. The thinking child seeks equals; the conformist seeks protectors.) — Ayn Rand
The sick individual finds himself at home with all other similarly sick individuals. The whole culture is geared to this kind of pathology. The result is that the average individual does not experience the separateness and isolation the fully schizophrenic person feels. He feels at ease among those who suffer from the same deformation; in fact, it is the fully sane person who feels isolated in the insane society — and he may suffer so much from the incapacity to communicate that it is he who may become psychotic. — Erich Fromm
Now on the other hand it’s also important to get acquainted with the idea of Letting Go. As I said Anger can also be toxic and many people on this planet embody the toxic aspects of Anger. Think of someone who gets furious because someone talks nasty things about his persona or about his family, such anger can only be destructive and in fact, it is quite stupid. It only leads to dead ends. I figure it is important to understand why and how this kind of Anger arises so then you can practice methods which focus on getting rid of this toxicity.
The trick comes when you have to decide when to use a peaceful aspect of your very Self or when to use a Fiery aspect.
Not an easy task, especially when you have to live in a world like ours where insanity is the norm.
This is a topic which I think is closely related so the subject of Sexuality. In fact I think that marriage as it is known in its conventional forms is a way to corrupt sexuality and make it toxic. In fact I’ll go as far as saying that the idea of a social contract between two, three or forty people is the result of corrupting an esoteric/philosophical theme which is known as the Chymical Wedding in Alchemy. From such point of view, a wedding is nothing more than an allegory for the integration of various principles found within the human being, an individual ceremony, not a collective one.
Bear with me while I try to give a small occult view on the subject of marriage.
In my own experience, I’ve learned that many aspects of the cancerous culture somehow are connected to psychological and occult archetypes, not only that but Archetypes seem to be the very same fabric of reality to some extent. As a human being you are able to tap into those Archetypes and then use them to fulfil whatever purpose you may have.
Somehow Archetypes seem to have a trickle down effect and to some extent they dictate the laws which govern X or Y reality, even your very own life. The problem is that most people are so unaware of it, which is a tragedy because I feel that knowing Archetypes can be very empowering. Think of being a software programmer who bit by bit creates a video game.In order to manifest your world in the digital realm you have to establish certain governing principles, the archetypes of your virtual world, now the example is rather simplistic and in fact, the virtual world is nowhere near as complex as what you would call reality.
And so by having in mind Archetypes we can take a dive into the rabbit hole and bring up the subject of the Alchemical Wedding:
So to me it would seem that the Alchemical Wedding is about working on existent principles within one’s self to attain “perfection” or rather evolve gradually. Somehow this has trickled-down into the cultosphere and we are left with the idea of marriage and its various cultural permutations and apparently the core theme remains the same: The eternal union between male and female (or “till’ death do us part”), the idea of becoming one, the fusion of principles, the aim for androgyny.
I’ve noticed this cultural pattern: While experiencing an orgasm during sex, a feeling of becoming one with your partner takes place. So what I see taking place is a corrupted simulacrum of something very sacred, perhaps there is a natural longing for an Alchemical marriage, but by being blinded by ignorance and stupidity, humans buy the fake and the corrupt which can never fill that spiritual void and of course the social engineers and the occult sorcerers have a hand in all of this.
Marriage was -and still is in some cases- a strategic tool in the grand game of chess, let’s look at the upper class of old: Arranged marriages to consolidate alliances, to consolidate trade, to preserve royalty, to achieve political victories, etc. If you pay attention for a bit you’ll realize that this pattern was/is all over the place, as in all over the planet, isn’t it curious? Yes, marriage as a means to attain power, to bind, to trap people into a social contract. Oh but you see, this social contract has been romanticized through the ages, such romantic crap reached the masses over and over again. It is not uncommon that many times the masses long to become the elite, they want a taste of such… wonderful and fantastic world, so the social engineers noticed what the common folk craved for and granted the masses their wish to a certain extent.
At first the masses could seek a religious contract, nothing fancy but it was a step. Little by little the social engineers went shaping the cultural cancers and we arrive at this day and age. If you have the money, you too can have a marvellous marriage: The wedding, the honey moon (which is an occult theme, just don’t ask me right now what it means because I forgot), the house, the kids, THE HAPPY LIFE UNTIL YOU DROP DEAD. The media will come with the smoke and mirrors and sell you pre-packaged lies.
“A diamond is forever” so is love and so is marriage. Have you noticed the sorcery in this? Identification works wonders, especially when you can manage the way in which the masses identify themselves with X idea or object. You see, on a very superficial level De Beers was on a marketing mission, to make a large profit with their glorified diamonds… but the deeper aim of this marketing campaign was to put a spell on the masses, social engineering in action, make people buy into and believe the beautiful lies.
The aim of Alchemy is to turn lead into gold. One of the necessary elements to achieve such transformation is the Alchemical Marriage or Chymical Wedding. interestingly enough “lead into gold” is interchangeable with “coal into diamond”, and thus the occult message of De Beers is: “We can give you an Alchemical Wedding”. Turn base elements into precious metals… indeed the subtextual message of transmutation is present here. Turn the base impulses or “the lower nature” of humans into a “higher nature”, the awakening of the sky woman or sky man within. Countless dying beings trying to rise by buying a simulacrum of the real thing, a real shame.
From a psychological point of view it’s not surprising to see marriages fail, I mean the couple or the group could live under the same roof until they die, but it’ll be a meaningless existence, automatons carrying out their duty which is dictated by some twisted social morality and decency. If two or more dissociated beings who are unaware and/or uninterested in eliminating the toxicity within their psyche start a relationship then I’d say such relationship will become cancer sooner or later.
I figure those kind of people lack what I’d call an aunthentic Self, product of deprogramming and self-contemplation and they would be quick to adopt what is socially acceptable or cool, thus creating a pseudo-self. However those cool and acceptable memes are the product of social engineers who lack any inner integrity, so people would be adopting lies which have their root in fragmented psyches. A being living with cracks in his/her psyche is doomed to self-destruct in multiple ways if he/she doesn’t start to counter the programming and build psychological immunity accordingly.
All in all, modern men and women have marriage as a mask to try to cover their existential angst with dreams of ever lasting happiness and fake love.
