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:
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.
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.
As far as I can discern our very existence already brings the dialectic of subjectivity and objectivity into the fray. To say that there’s absolute objectivity is stupid and the same applies if you go on to claim that there’s absolute subjectivity. The tricky part comes when you try to tell them apart and integrate them in a coherent and healthy whole.
You’d find objectivity in things such as gravity, the anatomy of the human body, the water cycle, chemical elements, etc. To argue against their existence is just plain stupid and they don’t cease to exist just because you are unaware of them. Something interesting happens then, subjectivity comes into play when you experience those objective elements from different points of view.
An anatomist may smile by studying the human biology from a deceased body in his laboratory while another person may find it repulsive (yet the core elements of the human body do not adjust to their subjectivity), A couple may enjoy the human anatomy while they have sex while someone else may be terrified at the idea of exploring another human being’s anatomy in such playful manner; A little girl may smile while she’s under the rain, finding herself under the spell of rain which is part of the objective water cycle.
You’ll find subjectivity in music, poetry, painting, architecture, etc. Would Mozart or Beethoven have been considered two of the greatest music composers to ever exist if subjectivity didn’t exist? Would Salvador Dali have been considered a genius if subjectivity was not real? And then something magical happens because people like these also depend on objective phenomenons, objects or ideas. Antonio Gaudi could never had solidified his works without gravity, Mozart would have been dull had he only paid attention to the musical scale in a mechanistic way with zero passion. You could take the dynamic further and you’d realize that neither of these geniuses of subjectivity would have had such an impact without the objective water cycle.
This goes even further because then you could ask if materializing subjective ideas is sane, you could ask if studying a hurricane (a product of objective forces) up-close in a sensible thing to do. The current system is a product of human subjectivity by far, yet it is far from being a sane system. You could live in an area with beautiful vistas, but what happens if that area happens to have frequent and very strong earthquake activity?
By the same token you could develop subjective systems for the betterment of your Self. Music could be something inspiring, a tool for healing perhaps. Studying the biology found within the planet and its cycles may allow you to have a more comfortable life style and even eradicate superstitious views which hinder your progress.
Oh you could also explore the reach of subjectivity and objectivity. Gravity ceases to exist once you leave the planet and the degree is different depending on what planetary body you find yourself on/in. Curiously enough you can’t beat gravity, but you can work your way around it. Think about generating enough force to oppose gravity, you’d find yourself flying or floating as long as you can generate enough energy to oppose gravity. Subjectivity can be very real in your mind, but what does it take to solidify some or all of those subjective ideas? what obstacles are there?
So I say it’s a dance between these two polarities, they are a dialectic, sometimes the dance is very obvious, sometimes it can be very subtle. Sadly this world has been so fucked up that there are people who are obsessed with subjectivity and there are also people who only worship objectivity, they seek to create a dichotomy of toxic elements, instead of trying to establish a healthy dialectic. It’s just as appalling as those people who are obsessed about having a life solely guided by either the heart or the brain, it escapes them that the body is a whole system… sure the brain and heart are major centers, but where the heart and brain would be without stomach, liver, lungs or pancreas?
This is a topic which has interested me for quite some time, not just about matters of male or female nor senseless sex. What really interests me is the deeper aspect and the impact sexuality has on human beings. From the potential to use it as a tool for fear and repression to the potential of living a calm life and even improving your health.
The very cosmos seems to carry sexuality in its very fabric. Isn’t a big bang something akin to a cosmic orgasm? the universal womb dancing along the universal light? something like that.
Anyways my first entry on this subject will focus more on the aspect of sexual abuse/repression.
The way I see it sexual abuse is deeply related to a master-slave relationship. Sexual abuse could be seen as someone forcing another person into sexual activities without their consent or it could be seen as someone trying to control/repress the sexuality of another person. The latter seems to play a big role within families.
I highly recommend the film “Black Swan” because it represents these dynamics in a brilliant manner and I mean the repression and overstimulation of sexuality.
What should be understood is that this can be described as a complex matter. It becomes complex when you start to look beyond the “what happened” and you start to explore the why, the who, the how, the when, etc. In this exercise you will find this goes way further than sexual predators and mere superficial cultural ideas, the monster is a giant octopus, each tentacle is a different area of study.
There are two things which should be core principles when studying the predator mindset and I’m not limiting this to sexual predation. You’ve got this mindset in the workplace, family, sports, religions. Basically the whole culture is frankeinsteined into different types of predators.
Anyways those two core principles are the human psyche and psychopathy. The former will help you understand how you can mold or even make other people follow certain patterns, while the latter can help you understand how this mindsets are set into motion and in fact the person in question doesn’t even have to be a full-blown psychopath to replicate this behaviour.
It should be understood that sexual energy is really powerful, this energy can be used to create healthy bonds or you can use it to literally start a world war. Let’s observe Nature for a while, think of rivers. Rivers have a natural flow, gradually they go on finding their way towards the ocean or a lake.
The time the river transforms or arrives at the ocean or lake could be seen as a moment when the river discharges its energy, this flow may change at some point, but usually it happens at a gradual pace unless the flow is disrupted by some “natural disaster” or if humans come in.
Humans have the ability to distort a river’s natural flow, at times you’ll see this flow being redirected into a dam. For a long time this process may seem harmless, but there are times when things go wrong and you’ll see the mighty dams being destroyed by rivers, this is a consequence of disrupting a natural flow.
Likewise sexual energy is tampered with. There are institutions which will launch their cultural memes to distort this flow and there can also be people who mindlessly adopts these memes. In modern society you can see two main ways to tamper with this energy, one is to repress it and the other one is to overcharge it.
If this energy is repressed for a long enough period of time, then you can see people who gradually start to become neurotic, anxious and very stressed. In fact the body starts to get very tense and it can be quite difficult to relax it. If you want to study cases which are even more extreme, then take a look at armed forces.
You take young men and women and prohibit them to exhibit or engage in any type of sexual activity. The result? extremely stressed men and women who can’t channel this sexual energy in a healthy way, stressed beings who then will be given missions to murder people and they will do it because to an extent it is a way to channel this energy, as toxic as this process may be. In a nutshell you produce people who are very submissive, yet extremely violent if they are put into a dangerous situation.
On the other hand you can overcharge the body with this energy and find release into extreme sexuality. People who go through this process can become quite rebellious, but very aggressive. It is this overstimulation which can lead to machismo, people who won’t bent the knee but will seek to put everyone else down. This is akin to a flood which can destroy a dam, water pouring out from every angle.
Both of these dynamics can produce fascist dictators, some occupy positions of tremendous power. Other’s don’t, but can be found in the average family. One of the problems with modern culture is that both paradigms are being used as ideological bombs, people are encouraged to repress their sexual energy while at the same time they are encouraged to take it to the extreme. Some people are more brutalized than others, but this dynamic seems to be the norm. On the other hand repression or overstimulation can result in self-sadism and/or sadism towards other beings.
Then you can get into the subject of psychopathy. I’d say a great number of these “people” do discharge their energy and aren’t sexually repressed, but since the predator mindset is very “natural” to them, this energy will be taken to the extreme. Perhaps one of the best examples of “sexual psychopathy” is found in the man who was known as the Marquis de Sade: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marquis_de_Sade These people prey at every level of society, from the poor environments to the mega rich environments. There’s no remorse which can hold down these monsters.
Now you could argue about doing an extensive background check and applying punishment to offenders, sexual or otherwise. But this is a tricky area and certainly is one which baffles me when people start to support either of these methods.
You can find yourself in a very precarious situation. Demanding extensive background checks and punishment result in societies who become very paranoid, these kind of mindsets are what lead people to accept Orwellian paradigms and in fact they can splinter communities because no one can trust each other anymore and there are powers who are happy to see this happening and then comes their propaganda machines to further divide society into paranoid groups.
You could also argue that physical punishment is necessary, including dead. But let’s not be quick to forget history. Certainly people would restrain themselves more out of fear, but this sort of practice is something which leads to inquisitions where guilty and innocent people are hanged, burned, chopped, crippled and murdered all the same.
There are powers who would like to see lustful crowds demanding blood in the name of justice, a nice decapitation makes a nice sadistic circus in the city square. I also notice a curious pattern, while some people in the world would like to demand punishment, they think: “Well the system should do it, someone should take care of it”. It is one thing to demand third-party executioners, but being honest who would have the courage and cold blood to administer punishment?
Now I’d like to make this very personal, let’s say someone is set to be publicly executed, whether this person is innocent or not is immaterial, since you are highly convinced of their culpability. So you find yourself demanding justice, but would you walk into the execution spot, look this person into the eyes, let them tell you their story and the proceed to shot them dead, cut their head, slit their throat or whatever while you keep staring into a pair of eyes?.
There are fine lines when it comes to this, the only exception being psychopaths, but they can be hard to spot at times and next thing you know you could have executions under the pretext of “war on psychopathy”. The road is steep.
If you ask me I’d say sexuality is a core element to have a sane psyche and if you pay attention you’ll notice that sexuality is deeply rooted into humanity’s state of decay. The tricky part comes when you try to balance this energy.
The god out of the machine is the modern wet dream of the technocratic dictators and even more horrifying is the fact that many people around the globe seek to become more machine like in an attempt to escape the pain of their existence. Ironically this only creates a soulless automaton who is in constant pain, physically and spiritually.
This video will be my starting point:
It’s an interesting video to say the least. It should be noted that when information is provided by the establishment it will be compartmentalized and rather superficial, for example, the BBC video may talk about the “revolutionary” changes in the future, such as having clean energy. It fails to consider groups of interest, cultural programming, psychopathy, economics, psychology, etc. Somehow this kind of stuff is interconnected with other subjects, but the last thing the Empire of Death wants to see is people connecting dots which require deep thought.
The idea of humanity 2.0 is nothing new, throughout history you can see obsessions with improving the human condition in a sort of dehumanized and necrotic manner. From keeping a specific race pure to adhering to a certain “superior” ideology. Transhumanism seeks a similar result via technology and science.
If you notice, the video makes emphasis on this: to separate and put back together. Somehow an occult axiom has trickled down into the cultosphere and many are pitifully unaware of it, but the great sorcerers of the pyramid are pretty much aware of this axiom and have corrupted it.
Alchemy has provided the axiom: Solve et Coagula. Dissolve and coagulate, separate and put back together. In a healthy aspect it boils down to identifying abstract aspects of yourself which can go from thoughts to emotions, the idea is to take one of those elements and purify it. Take anger for instance, an emotion which at first seem venomous, yet when you sublimate it you can obtain a healthy dose of rebellion. You can take that blind anger towards the system and refine it to the point where you won’t seek to break windows in the next pseudo-anarchist protest, but instead you will get to know the antics of the system and develop psychological and/or practical methods to counter it. Again you can do this with pretty much any psychological energy, you can work with various energies at the same time. The idea is to put those elements back together so that you can have a healthier Self which works as a whole, a symbiotic relationship of sorts between the different aspects of your Self.
You can project this dynamic to a more superficial and concrete level. Take the example of the “spider-goats” in the BBC video: you take two animals found in the whole, that is nature. Oh and you want to obtain a specific thing: Silk. Which can be mass-produced at a faster and efficient manner. Take “Solve” further, identify the spider protein which produces silk, then extract it. Now it’s time for “Coagula”, introduce the DNA code for the spider protein in the DNA code of the goat. Repeat “Solve” when you want to extract silk from the goat’s milk. This is very simplified but you get the idea.
Now, when it comes to human beings a similar process takes place, whether it is done to evolve or to be put down by some technocratic/occult spheres of power. In a toxic sense, you are being put trough a heavy process of dissociation (Solve) with your own Self. The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of it are broken, smashed into tiny pieces. After after this process, the priests who have replaced and murdered the shamans will step in and proceed to coagulate these aspects into a new whole, this will be done for you, the only condition is to be obedient.
When I talk about priests I’m not limiting it to the religious figures, I’m talking about the different types of social engineers. The new whole provided for you will be your cultural and sub-cultural personas where the broken aspects of your Self try to work together. There are different degrees to this, some people go trough more brutal phases than others. A great example of this is the film “Black Swan”, what you can see in the film is a sort of backwards alchemical process of “Solve et Coagula” in a very MK Ultra style. The whole or almost the whole world goes trough different degrees of this process:
And you only need to check who the director of this film is to confirm the psychological and occult roots of the film: Darren Aronofsky a guy who was inspired by Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “The Holy Mountain” a very psychedelic and occult film, but I digress.
On the other hand you can break-down those toxic aspects of your Self and refine them to obtain a more “pure version” of them to put them back together in a more coherent and healthy whole, in this healthy dynamic you don’t need priests, instead you’ll go on to become a sort of psychological shaman. You can see this dynamic in “Batman Begins”:
From a cultural perspective, I think Transhumanism is about providing an escape from a rather harsh and dull existence. An existence where gods have failed to deliver, an existence where the human body is seen as a massive flaw. In today’s modern world, science is the new religion, in the eyes of millions science has managed to deliver. It has given great technological advancements which provide answers for the ills of humanity. In the average mind it is only logical to assume that posthumanism is the answer to our woes.
But something has to be made clear here, that is the average guy is not seeking to become a sort of cyborg in such a literal way because the cultural machinery has not materialized such practice yet. Rather the foundations for it are being build, via flashy advertisements, sci-fi and visionary scientists. Don’t underestimate this because in fact this serves another purpose… those futuristic visions are in a sense encouraging a very real state of dehumanization where technological gadgets equal happiness and prozac cures all any and all forms of depression, for these are the foundations for the next step in the technocratic system of evolution.
Another thing to consider in all of this are the subjects of “The Great Work” and “The Chymical Weddding”:
Those videos show the corrupted side of those two concepts. The Great Work is about working on your Self to become God and to create yourself while The Chymical Wedding is about obtaining a synthesis between two opposing forces, usually this is depicted by Masculine and Feminine energies. In the first video you can see humans trying to become the gods of the physical realm by creating themselves, to this end they will use science and technology to perfect themselves.
In the second video you can see the dialectic of being “environmental conscious and green” and “being modern and trendy” being expressed in a very mythical fashion. It’s worth mentioning that in a healthy sense both of these dynamics (The Work and The Wedding) have some core foundations which pretty much can be applied to every single human being, yet at deeper levels they become something very, very personal. In contrast you can see that the versions provided by the Empire of Death is very collectivized, there is no room for individuality beyond a social persona and a quantitative sense.
Another point to explore is that The Wedding and The Work have different phases and each of them is an ongoing process, in the same manner Transhumanism is just another phase in the technocratic elite’s Great Work and Chymical Wedding.
I don’t see the creation of life via synthetic biology as bizarre, if you think about it this physical realm is in a sense, condensed information. So I guess you could say this so-called synthetic biology is about finding a way to materialize virtual information. A concept which is not foreign in the realm of sci-fi, you can see this dynamic being explored in “Tron”:
Now I don’t see why the planet would be upset about humans doing what it’s proposed in the BBC video, by itself it’s just potential and new layers to be explored and when you think about it, as synthetic as they may be, these technological machines are the result of transforming raw materials found in nature (then you could get into subjects such as how much blood has been spilled in exchange).
BUT it is true that this enormous potential power is being made available to a broader audience. At first glance you could say is a positive step, since it somehow reduces the power of the elites… yet it should be remembered that most of the population is completely broken and they can’t give these new possibilities deep thought. In a sense, it’s just a new toy, the next cool thing the modern world has to offer. This kind of power can be quite terrifying in the hands of a few sociopathic people, but it’s also frightening to see it in the hands of the stupid and ignorant.
Something I noticed was the amazement in the video about the neurological devices and the concept of using light to alter the functions of the brain. This is not something new, rather it’s being made more sophisticated and direct. The practice of sending stimuli to the brain via light can be seen on the dynamics used by the giant media corporations in their T.V. programming. They aim for specific centers on the brain and effectively change the behaviour of millions of people. Which leads me to point out the hypocrisy of the sociopathic elites. You are encouraged to believe that it’s all about science now, well I call bullshit, it’s also about magic or sorcery just like the following video:
1:15 mark, you can notice how there is a spell being casted in a very symbolic language, the message is: “Do not think, erase your individual identity”. Yeah don’t worry in 5 years you can also live IBM’s dream. Which leads me to this point:
This futuristic vision of humanity is the vision of a few. Just as the elite has created a dream of success for the masses in the modern culture where people are constantly encouraged to pursue a dream which is not even theirs and can hardly accomplish. So it will be the same in the phase of literal Transhumanism. The serfs are being encouraged to pursue the new dream so that they can carry out the vision of the masters, they will be bombarded with images of the new utopia, but only the elite will be the ones to enjoy it, for this is the metaphorical present and the probable future:
A Schism of our different aspect of Self indeed:
Probably the common conception in the world at large (including some sectors/people within the alternative media scene) is that violence is a problem which is being tackled. Perhaps many people would have a very stereotypical conception of violence where the images they see whenever they hear the term “violence” would be in the physical sense, but I think the issue is much deeper and complex.
You have to consider that physical violence is just one form of abuse and for me it is very interesting to see that when the word “violence” is thrown a lot of people think of physical violence taken to the extreme: wars, beat downs, riots, murders, rape and what have you. There are various degrees of physical violence, from the angry parent hitting his/her children because they are being somewhat hyperactive to the cold murder of humans or animals for whatever reason… and you know I think the general consensus trance is fucked up. Blowing up thousands of people seems to be horrible, but giving slaps to children because they don’t follow neurotic rules… well that seems to be ok, we’ll tolerate that.
Then we have emotional violence, think psychopaths taking advantage of emotional vulnerabilities or pedantic teachers ridiculing students because they can’t or don’t want to repeat things like a parrot. we could also get into the phenomenon of machismo.
There is something else which I consider emotional violence and that is what the entertainment industry does at large, which is the bombardment of the emotional self. Just look at the chick flicks, for instance, or at the rambo macho man series or at the idiotic romance songs where you have to cry because your boyfriend or girlfriend left you. Very messed up and if you happen to be the average guy or the average girl in a western society… well imagine a mixture of emotional violence: On one side you are meant to play tough, the serious person who gets down to business and on the other you are being fed a never-ending series of emotionally loaded bullshit.
Perhaps we can also get into spiritual or psychic violence, you know cut someone’s contact with their true Self, don’t allow people to really find authentic expressions of themselves, oh but every other human who is programmed will make sure to tell you: “just be yourself”, the media will come and offer you endless personas and the scientists will enter the fray to let you know that every single thought or voice that you hear in you head belongs to you.
Let’s look at sexual repression for a while… ever wonder why there are so many people with sexual anxiety? ever wonder why there is so much sexual abuse towards people of all ages? and have in mind that sexual abuse doesn’t necessarily mean rape. This issue about sexual repression is interesting because it shows you how physical repression can lead to chaos on the emotional and psychic Selves. Well physical violence has such an effect if it is practiced constantly.
So yes, apparently extreme physical violence has been reduced, maybe we’ll be seeing less and less in the future… but we need to ask: WHY AND HOW?. What are the driving forces which seemingly are eroding physical violence?. Is it the “good nature” of human beings? is it that humans are finally discussing before throwing punches? is intelligence actually increasing?… or is it due to the new – or not so new – ways of repression? is it because nowadays the masses can be provided with more bread and circuses and miracles than ever before? is it because the scientists and big pharma have the answer for the problems which assault human beings day in and day out? have they found a cure for rage, sadness, depression, etc. in the form of small pills and capsules?
“Here Mr. take 3 capsules every morning, and you’ll be an ever smiling and succesful being!”. Maybe the state has more prisons, bigger and better than ever before so the criminals can be locked up and be kept away from the good Samaritans, perhaps the governments around the world can provide more police officers to patrol the streets and neighbourhoods while at the same time they keep the thugs far away… hey maybe the brave armies of the most powerful countries are indeed bringing peace, you know, maybe the deaths of those ugly and nasty terrorists do make the world a safer and better place.
I’d say it has little to do with the fact that some people are snapping out of it and are evolving. I’d say there are more “miracles”, more entertainment, more prisons, more effective “watch agencies”. Heck just look at mass media. Don’t the big media outlets perpetuate a form of violence? doesn’t the existence of such outlets and their practices tell us something about violence on multiple levels?.
I feel humanity at large is in a stage of social experimentation, a social experiment which to me seems to be leading humanity into a mixed existence between “THX 1138” and “Gattaca”.
So I would say violence is actually increasing, not so much in the physical realm, but certainly the emotional and psychic realms are getting more and more toxic.
So no, sadly violence is not eroding, I’d say this: We have more masks for violence than ever before.
If humanity at large is ever gonna change for the better, then what “we” need are rebels and wise people, not masses of goody two shoes who smile because that is the polite thing to do.
Have in mind that this is a layer or layers of the problem, some of the themes I presented can be explored further and I have found that those are very fine lines at times, I’d like to share an interview with Michael Tsarion which I think is very relevant to this entry:
