Some might recall that last year I wrote a piece about 3rd, 4th, and 5th dimensional timespace perception based on various visionary experiences I’ve had throughout the years. All consciousness is part of a continuum and I’m quite sure I wouldn’t have had these sorts of experiences without the writings of people like Robert Monroe, Terrence McKenna, Robert Anton Wilson, and Grant Morrison forever stretching the parameters of my linguistic operating system. And that’s the main reason I put this sort of fringe weirdness on the internets – to directly influence the psychic hive mind grid of humanity and potentially create exotic experience in the reader. Anyway, apparently it works because I got a message on Facebook (friend me) from a dude named Andrew Cary linking me to this rather brilliant piece he wrote, partially inspired by my theories on dimensional perception. What I love about this is whereas what I do is essentially translating mystical concepts for a generation of kids raised on crap like VICE and stoner comedy, he takes a vastly more scientific approach.… Read the rest

“Consensus reality” is a funny term. There are some things we can all agree on. The earth is round (Flat Earth Society). Kittens are cute (I Hate Cats Tees). The external world exists (David Icke’s Saturn/Moon Matrix theory). For every absolute you can state, there’s someone out there who will draw a line in the sand and tell you that you’re wrong wrong wrong. The DKMU turned those lines into trenches, huddled down for the long haul, and started bombarding the rest of us with glitterbombs.
DKMU was a loosely affiliated group of artists and occultists, connected through the internet, who declared war on reality in 2007. “We cast spells, scribe sigils, open doorways, summon spirits, generate hauntings, design deities, perform rituals on skyscrapers while dropping acid, evoke archetypes around bonfires, imbue our intents within media of all sorts and anything else we might find useful in making the world a more wild, mysterious and liberating place to be.” (dkmu.org)
Members of the group came from all walks of life and traditions, bound together by their desire to make the world a more magical place and amp up the weirdness of everyday life. There were no leaders, and there seemed to be no coherent philosophy shared by its members. With heavy nods toward Chaos Magic and Discordianism, the DKMU released a series of videos, music, and visual art that they called, “propaganda,” describing the consensual reality as a kind of prison for creativity and personal freedom. Their focus was on the practical application of magical techniques, particularly the use of sigils (a symbolic representation of an idea or intent), and the treatment of the individual’s psyche as a laboratory.… Read the rest

I was invited to go to Burning Man when it was at Baker Beach in San Francisco in 1989. At the time I remember wondering what would
inspire people to ritually burn an effigy of a man on the beach, and thinking it particularly chthonic (which didn’t appeal to my Apollonian nature) I didn’t go. After being hassled by the “authorities” in San Francisco, Burning Man moved to the Black Rock Desert in Northern Nevada in 1990 and has been hosted there ever since. 51,515 people attended burning man in 2010 and attendance was capped at 50,000 thereafter. The maximum attendance reminds me of the Great Pyramid slope angle of 51 deg 51 min but maybe that’s “just a coincidence.”
The reason I’m writing about Burning Man is because I looked at it in Google Earth and was amazed that this annual pilgrimage site in a remote desert occurs within a temporary urban design called Black Rock City (BRC) that appears to be a magical diagram.
