The Sub-Verses: Book Five: Reaper's Fall

As I've stated many times on Amid Night Suns, I truly believe in the awesome spiritual and artistic power of human consciousness.  I believe that we have the potential to rediscover our destinies and our true natures, to defeat even our most merciless oppressors.  All that is required is a combination of rigor, intellect and imagination; a synthesis that begins with a brutal self-honesty.  Do we really want to attempt to change the world?  Or are we simply just too lazy, exhausted or burnt-out?  If we do wish to make such an attempt we need to realize that exhaustion and burn-out are simply hazards of the profession.  They are the risks we must inevitably take in order to attempt something so grand and potentially rewarding.  However, there are ways to combat these hazards.  As always we must look to Art, Culture, Friends and Family to continually re-invigorate us in our quest.  If we are to take this quest seriously, it necessitates that we are in it for the long haul.

The Light of Love and Art is our energy source; the valiant struggles of everyone who has come before us, and the current struggles of our peers who are united in similar purpose.  Over on The Secret Sun, Christopher Loring Knowles discusses a wide range of themes including paleocontact, Mithras, the elusive nature of Mystery and more in his excellent post, Astronaut Theology: Mysteries Within Mysteries.  He writes:

This is not a mystery that wants to be solved- it's the kind of capital M Mystery that your ancestors were given to building ecstatic cults around. If you approach the mystery the way they did, as an eternal enigma leading us along to a deeper understanding of the world around us-- a kind of Zen koan in the sky-- your attitude towards and your perception of the evidence completely changes. You're no longer frustrated or stymied by the refusal of this Mystery to stop being so damn mysterious. 

Most importantly, you realize that Synchronicity plays a crucial, indispensible role in all of this and becomes a quite reliable navigational tool in unchartable waters.



This idea of treating the Mystery as a literal evolutionary abstraction is something I wholeheartedly agree with.  It helps us to maintain our sanity, but also it helps us to be unafraid of exploring the deepest and most difficult questions regarding human consciousness, our exogenesis and our potential future.  If we imbibe the Light of fearlessness and lucidity, I believe we are then capable of incredible things.





The forces of Archonic control, or what I call the Reapers of the Absence Brethren, are trying to ensure that our true history and implied potential remains lost to us.  In order to control us they must make us believe that we are powerless.  They wish to craft a Perfect Dystopia, a realm in which a handful of powerful cliques prey on the rest of humanity.  But this Perfect Dystopia is intended to have the bright, glittering aesthetic of a Utopia - at least in the First World - and will be all the more insidious because of it.  They want us to believe all the propaganda concerning the democracy-enabling function of the West, while doing everything it can to fragment us into ever-dividing cultural and religious sub-cultures that are mistrusting and hateful towards each other.  Out of this Chaos comes the dystopian Order they wish to implement; The Last Dark Age.  But this plan cannot appear democratic and progressive for much longer.
We will not let them continue to blind us.  The Archonic Reapers of the Absence Brethren will eventually fall.  It is inevitable.  A Liberated Humanity will have it no other way.

  1. Deeper and deeper...fantastic companion post to the Secret Sun essay. That was CLK at his finest in my opinion! These two posts, yours and his, blew me away! "...but also it helps us to be unafraid of exploring the deepest and most difficult questions regarding human consciousness, our exogenesis and our potential future. If we imbibe the Light of fearlessness and lucidity, I believe we are then capable of incredible things." Wham! Right between my eyes. You just described my life in a sentence and a half. "A living fiction in chemical clothing....brilliant stuff Raj!
