Language as Magic
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:
