In the course of everyday conversation, if you were to make a remark about humans being controlled by nefarious inhuman forces, you’d typically get people calling you overly paranoid and probably accusing you of smoking way too much pot. On the other hand, you’d be entirely and quite demonstrably accurate. We have an expansionary agenda we’re all seemingly beholden to in one manner or another, and we execute this subconsciously programmed agenda through our desire to put up greater and greater numbers. Isn’t that what the stock market is all about when you get right down to it? Tracking our progress on breeding irresponsibly and churning out environmentally toxic bullshit? Hey, we made a lot of new soulless crap today. Numbers are skyrocketing. Where are we going with all that exactly? When wealth equality’s cartoonishly heinous and our government breaks, you’d think we’d start wondering now wouldn’t you? Go team nowhere!
As I was once informed in a colorful visionary trance (non stop magicks on the Facebooks, friend me), “we’re being forced to wake up”. Of course what this truly means is that we’ve turned our back on mysticism for so long that we don’t have a fucking choice anymore. We either wake up to the fact that we’re dreaming or we suffer. The world’s throwing surrealistic insanity at us at increasingly rapid rates to smoke us heavenward.
Which is kind of what I’m getting at when I call a profit margin daemonic. I can assure you that concepts of daemonic and angelic forces struck me as preposterous fairy tale nonsense until I started dabbling in the dark arts. You then slowly start to realize there’s a reason themes of duality reflect in everything you observe. Angelic and Daemonic, Chaos and Order, Crazy and Sane, Structure and Anti-Structure, Yin and Yang, Masculine and Feminine. Now, we typically look at these forces as warring entities, but from the Occult perspective it’s better to think of them as fucking. Hate fucking maybe, but sex is the primary force behind all creation, and these forces are creative beyond any measure of human logic. A lot of understanding internal otherworldly telepathy involves recognizing the visual communication that’s being presented by the imagery chosen. It’s like reading body language. A daemonic entity might look sinister, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. It’s our predilection to binary thought modalities that compels us to categorize things in this manner in the first place. We also tend to think spiders look creepy, but that doesn’t mean they’re evil. They’re the only things standing between us and an insectile overpopulation apocalypse. We need those fuckers. But they’re not impressed by us. They know we don’t like them, they don’t like us, or moreover, they’re indifferent to us and we’re indifferent to them. If we stay out of each other’s way, we’re good.
One could define the difference between black magick and white magick as more of a difference between manipulating terrestrial vs. higher dimensional energies. Believe me, they don’t have profit margins in heaven, or if they do, you know, quote me the Bible passage that leads you to believe that. Profit margins are a force we’ve created on this level of reality to help facilitate action. It’s a psychological tool we use to make new weird shit and it works. I walk up the street and boom, new virtual GTA satire world at my fingertips. You click on Disinfo and I’m fucking with your head (also on Twitter). These things wouldn’t exist without a profit margin driving them. It’s great art, but as with all great art, it’s also destined to show us what we need to hear rather than what we want to. The corporate media’s been feeding us those hollow calories for years. Consumerism’s failing and it shouldn’t be surprising as to why. It’s driven by daemonic forces (and yes, I put the a in daemonic because I think the word’s been a bit well, demonized over the years).
When was the last time you ever heard anyone in the popular media talk about the philosophical underpinnings of money? I mean seriously. You hear a lot about numbers and not much about the reasons behind it all. Doesn’t fit the agenda of the climbing numbers. And yet, the concept isn’t bad in theory, in fact, it’s all about unity. The idea is that we create a system by which individuals are rewarded based on their contributions to society but here’s something that everyone knows because it’s so glaringly obvious: money does not reward people for their contributions to society in any rational way. That’s what it’s designed to do, and it doesn’t work…at all. The fatal flaw is that those who accumulate massive amounts of wealth have a disproportionate influence on society and they use this influence to guarantee that the game’s rigged in their favor forever and ever. It’s been going on this way ever since we can remember. Jesus was certainly pissed about it.
Now again, if we’re going to talk about things being daemonic, all I’m saying is that a profit margin, absolutely, positively DOES NOT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HUMAN SUFFERING. It is completely devoid of human emotion or empathy. It has no problem creating hell on earth if that means putting up bigger stats. I think by most people’s definition, thaaaat’s demonic. And this is what we spend all of our time slaving away for (often quite literally). Something that doesn’t care if we live or die as a species. It doesn’t care who gets tortured. All it cares about is going up. We designed it to do that. It’s how we commit heinous atrocities right from the creature comforts of our own petty first world problems. Wasn’t me man, it was the money. Just business. We’ve taken ourselves out of the problem and made corporations into the people who do our dirty work for us. What is the behavior of corporations dictated by? Profit for investors. Shit’s gotta keep going up. Does this behavioral justification lead to the most horrific of ungodly atrocities? Fuck yeah it does! Why do you think we go to war? Wall Street is all over it.
And you know what? I have a minor amount of empathy for the people on Wall Street and the super rich in general. A basic study of social psychology should essentially illuminate the fact that people are alarmingly conformist. Very few have much of an ability to dissolve the confines of the persona they’ve adopted and break on through to the other ride. People tend to go with the crowd. I have no idea what it’s like to grow up pampered beyond belief. From their perspective, they’re winning this game we’ve created. What would they be apologetic about? They’re like, “hey, there’s this game that we’ve been taught, and we are kicking the living crap out of you at it. You want us to apologize for being way better than you at something?” They get rewarded for all of this Ayn Rand/Church of Satan psychosis I might point out. We kiss their asses for behaving horribly and beg for tiny bits of the runoff. How many people are mentally strong enough to seriously question the thing everyone else is praising them for? I suppose it’s the same reason when I look at a 20 year old from nowhere America keeping her second kid I just have to shrug my shoulders. I have no idea what it’s like to come from that world. They’re just doing what the people around them are.
Which is why the legalization of psychedelic drugs should be of paramount importance at this particular moment in human history. They’re the most effective way of forcing people to question the supremacy of their narrow micro narratives. I know, completely off everyone’s political radar with all the unpleasantness going down. How is this relevant? How is it not relevant? Consumerism is destroying us and a shift toward shamanic philosophy’s the only antidote.
Let me put it this way, if you must subscribe to the idea that consciousness is rooted in the brain, then our brains can do a lot of weird ass shit that we intentionally program them not to do. That’s not a debatable opinion. Absolute fact. What, are you going to say ayahuasca, DMT, and acid aren’t things? Go read up a bit on that. What about out of body experiences? Near death experiences? Lucid dreams? I don’t know what to tell you. If you must insist it’s the brain, then again, the brain can do a lot of hyper-weird shit.
Why don’t we study this? There’s no money in it. As someone who’s experimented with a lot of this strangeness I can tell you, sort of makes owning a mansion you don’t share with the world seem like the most pathetically small minded life goal imaginable. And that’s what’s behind this population spiking insanity when you get down to brass tacks. People wanting to live these exorbitant consumerist lifestyles they’ve either grown up in the midst of or been fed to emulate on TV. No one ever tells you to try and attain internal godhood. That’s exactly the way the profit margins want it. Remember free love? Of course you don’t because the war machine beat it out of history.
But it’s not just drugs, as someone who’s read a reasonable amount regarding the history of organized psi research, let me sum it up for you a bit.
Military Remote Viewing Research – Essentially proved the reality of hive mind interconnected consciousness, failed to weaponize it or come up with a way to otherwise turn a profit. Project discontinued.
Sony’s Psi Research – Proved the existence of conjoined consciousness. Couldn’t figure out a way for it to make money. Project discontinued.
Princeton PEAR Research Labs – Showed interaction between consciousness and things like random number generators. Project discontinued. Couldn’t figure out how to make fat stacks.
These are the things that could destroy the daemonic forces of obsessive profit gouging we’ve embedded in the darkest reaches of our psyches. How do you sell people on consumerism when they know there are greater things they can achieve by manipulating their own brain chemistry for free? This is the higher dimensional magick we’re currently oblivious to. We’ve been far too fixated on the flashy terrestrial stuff for far too long—cornered ourselves into a blind alley chasing profits. We’re going to need an expanded imagination to solve our way out. Legal weed is certainly a great step in the right direction, but we’ve got to continue to expand.
These are daemonic times. An expansionary demi-urge has embedded itself deep within us and it’s fueling our directionless psychosis. We need to get it under control. We can’t just keep blaming it on the money, because eventually the money looks back into our souls and tells us we created it. The fear is teaching us.
It’s fascinating. The more I’ve ventured down these avenues of inquiry the more I find myself thinking about the book of Genesis. That’s the book where God punishes us for attaining sacred knowledge regarding the material world at the suggestion of a serpentine (daemonic) entity. As I recall, God’s a total dick about the whole ordeal and says we now have to slave away tilling the soil in this materialist prison we’ve created for ourselves by taking the snake drugs he specifically forbade. He’s all like, “If you all want terrestrial knowledge, here you go motherfuckers, choke on it”. As I’ve opined a billion times before, the spiritual ignorance of the human species certainly seems conspiratorial, and there it is. God’s conspiracy, right in our supposedly holy books, resonating through the consciousness of so very many. How could they be so completely oblivious to all the occluded intrigue? What is it that we lost when God banished us from the Garden of Eden? What did we gain from our reptilian alliance with the lower earth dimensions? Challenging the dark forces of profit driven avarice is the only way we can transform these questions into mysterious and more advanced psychic awareness. Continuing to play the skyrocketing numbers game will only drive us increasingly insane and the obviousness of this madness is designed to snap us the fuck out of the plague of blind expansion we’ve been cursed with. On the other hand, man are there a billion great albums out there these days. If everything burns, I suppose it’s been a good run.
