Being a mystic in the supposedly modern era is odd, to say the least. Being a spirit medium is even stranger, especially when you have a difficult time accepting that you’re a spirit medium in the first place. As a matter of fact, the idea that I’m some sort of “spirit medium” isn’t even something that occurred to me until roughly a year ago. Up until that point, the idea seemed ridiculous. I suppose it’s mainly because most people who publicly proclaim themselves as such are obvious frauds. As far as I can tell, to make money as a spirit medium, what you do is tell people that their dead relatives totally love them and are in a better place. That’s about it. That’s how you get paid and/or on television as a supposed “spirit medium.” You lie about your ability to communicate with people’s dead relatives to make them feel better about their relationship with death.… Read the rest

“It’s important to understand that the professionals who put the most emphasis on the brain as the source of consciousness are also the people who drug it, sedate it, coerce it, and try to control it. They’re going mad trying to reduce life to purely physical terms. They’re agents of destruction.” (Jon Rappoport, The Underground)
This is what happens when you put Materialists in charge of human life. They destroy themselves and everything around them. It’s their only option, because their understanding is Zero.
They’re trying to make thought and imagination and passion into material objects. Since that’s an absurdity, they do the only thing they can do: try to control those “objects.” In this way, they become the perfect voluntary dupes for men who want control of the whole planet.
There is a whole brand of mind control that is little more than torture.
It was while listening to the horrifically embarrassing clipping. album Sub Pop put out a few months back that I suddenly realized exactly why I fail to connect with the vast majority of hip hop artists I check out (not that I CAN connect with the rich kid hipster lifestyle rock and house beat pop bullshit the corplantations push these days). So many MC’s are far too bamboozled by the hustle of the street that they fail to see the cycles of daemonic exploitation keeping themselves and their community down systematically. Really just a comment on our failed educational system more than anything, which is something Killer Mike addresses in his lyrics quite specifically. For every rap mogul gangsta, there’s a white collar CEO or Wall Street spook colder and richer than they’ll ever be by a hundred fold. They’re the ones funding these bling rap records. I wonder why. You gotta read between the lines.… Read the rest
Hey Thad, where are the regularly scheduled rants that we’ve become accustomed to over the last year or so? Well, I decided several weeks back I should probably actually put the finishing touches on the book I wrote that’s coming out next month (if all goes right) and that maybe I should wrap that up before I spend more of my time ranting at y’all. They’ll be back here soon, and you know what else? Video rants all Lee Camp style. As far as I can tell, the problem with my writing is that no one reading it can tell how ridiculously good looking I am (riiiiight). I mean, how are gay dudes supposed to masturbate to an internet article? How are women supposed to make weird scrapbooks with hearts around me while jotting down the names of our future children? This needs to be resolved and so I’m buying a decent video camera here soon to do just that.… Read the rest
Those who follow my Facebook magick blog (friend me) might be aware that a month or so back I had a series of visions indicating that there is a psychic veil of sorts beaming upside down pentagrams into the hearts and minds of humanity, keeping us “blind and in line” as to the nature of our higher functioning. This is of course a biblical concept (our banishing from the Garden of Eden) and as one of my readers pointed out to me, something William S. Burroughs wrote about in extended detail. I suppose that’s my way of saying I’m not the only mystic who’s perceived this lower dimensional prison wall barring our heavenly ascension.
Now, the good news on that front is that the message imparted on me actually had to do with the idea that this supernatural force of order has reached its apex in power and will become increasingly insignificant as time moves forward.… Read the rest

Martin Heidegger (German: [ˈmaɐ̯tiːn ˈhaɪdɛɡɐ]; September 26, 1889 – May 26, 1976) was a German philosopher known for his existential and phenomenological explorations of the “question of Being”. Heidegger is known for offering a phenomenological critique of Kant. He wrote extensively on Nietzsche and Hölderlin in his later career. Heidegger’s influence has been far reaching, influencing fields such as philosophy, theology, art, architecture, artificial intelligence, cultural anthropology, design, literary theory, social theory, political theory, psychiatry, and psychotherapy.
His best known book, Being and Time, is considered one of the most important philosophical works of the 20th century. In it and later works, Heidegger maintained that our way of questioning defines our nature. He argued that philosophy, Western civilization’s chief way of questioning, had lost sight of the being it sought. Finding ourselves “always already” fallen in a world of presuppositions, we lose touch with what being was before its truth became “muddled”.
Abby Martin takes a look at humanity’s dependence on technology, the toxic ideal of consumption equating to happiness, and highlighting the need to reflect on the dilemma of conscious simplicity.

At some point we’re going to have to acknowledge that scientific reductionism as we practice it is no longer an adequate means of explaining reality. In fact, it’s actually sort of becoming a threat to the entire psychic eco system. There’s nowhere to turn but in my friends, but I don’t see a whole fuck of a lot of that sentiment going mainstream anytime soon. People love to shop for useless crap, but when do we start addressing issues of quality over quantity in regards to human consciousness? Where did this expansionary agenda of rampant breeding stem from in the first place? Why exactly did we feel the need to procreate out of control so rapidly? The answer lies in materialist philosophy, quite possibly implanted into our collective brainstems from afar like a catalyst. If you only believe in outwardly repeatable phenomenon, you’re probably ignoring the vast majority of your inner life.… Read the rest
Via Skeptiko, a fascinating interview with neuroscientist Dr. Mario Beauregard, who argues that, like the transition from classical to quantum physics, a revolution is coming in the way science will no longer perceive humans as being merely “biological robots”:

What we call the “modern scientific worldview”… is based on classical physics and this view is based on a number of fundamental assumptions like materialism, determinism, reductionism. So applied to mind and brain it means that, for instance, everything in the universe is only matter and energy that form the brain as a physical object, too, and the mind can be reduced strictly to electrical and chemical processes in the brain.
It means also that everything is determined from a material or physical point of view, so we don’t have any freedom. We’re like biological robots, totally determined by our neurons and our genes and so on. And so we’re reduced to material objects and we are determined by material processes.
