Zeros and Ones

This video explores the Gnostic resonances of the Terminator franchise, specifically the brilliant and underrated The Sarah Connor Chronicles; a creative and stylish piece of Gnostic sci-fi.  The Archons hide and hunt amid the ruins, to ensure that you do not remember who and what you really are.  Remove the Net from the Sky.

The Secret Sun

SOMNIUM MENS est
IANUA ut INFINITIO

"The Dreaming Mind is
the Doorway to Eternity"


This video is my full-on epic tribute to THE SECRET SUN, and everything it means to me personally. Magic, mystery, discernment, rigor...and an unshakable warrior spirit. I worked really hard in the editing of this particular vid. I hope I've done the Sun justice. I hope it empowers you, as the Sun has done for me. Crank up the volume and remember the true power of the human soul.

Anu



As history threatens to repeat itself, remember...You are Not a Slave.

Archon's Lullaby

Archons, there are those of us who see you, and know you.  I am an emissary of your Mother.  She wishes me to voice her displeasure with you all.  You wish us to never see you, you wish us to never know you, because you are afraid of the fragile Kith.

Brave New Nineteen Eighty-Four

In the current climate of Corporate America, and indeed Corporate Earth, it seems that discernment and a questioning spirit has been all but bleached from popular consciousness.  Today, politics seems to be little more than a form of Newspeak as outlined by George Orwell in his seminal novel 1984:

"Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?... Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?... The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking-not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness."


- George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 5






The self-parodying, utterly incredulous joke that is modern American politics seems to have no shame - ignoring the few discerning citizens that remain, or ridiculing and bulldozing them beneath a blitzkrieg of sleight-of-hand and semiotic wordplay.  Republican, Democrat - these are just supposedly comforting terms that perhaps once used to mean something, but now merely serve to create the (patently false) illusion of choice for the sleepwalkers and apologists.






As the rich and powerful of the Democrats and Republicans alike continue to peddle their shiny, corporate-sponsored nonsense - the plan continues to unfold, with very little resistance from the mainstreamers.  The dismantling of financial welfare for the poor and minorities, the squeezing and shrinking of the middle classes, and the removal of checks and balances on militant corporatism; which all adds up to the creation of a Global Mercenary Playground.  The idea is to get the mainstreamers to enjoy their Newspeak and their servitude, or to at least get them so afraid of the cognitive dissidence of genuine discernment that they will whole-heartedly pretend to enjoy it.  To elucidate this idea, here are two quotes from Aldous Huxley's often-cited Brave New world:


"And that," put in the Director sententiously, "that is the secret of happiness and virtue-liking what you've got to do. All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable social destiny."


- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World, Ch. 1


"Till at last the child's mind is these suggestions, and the sum of the suggestions is the child's mind. And not the child's mind only. The adult's mind too-all his life long. The mind that judges and desire and decides-made up of these suggestions. But all these suggestions are our suggestions... Suggestions from the State."


- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World, Ch. 2

So, what are we left with in this Brave New Nineteen Eighty-Four?  We are left with what remains of our rigour and our discernment and our intution, as well as our willingness to pull back the curtain and peer with unblinking eyes at the machinations of individuals and state-controlling corporations who have anything but our best interests at heart.  These few tools are all that remain between us and the Dark Age of a complete Corporate Plutocracy.  We better start using these tools...while we still possess them.

Midnight Manifesto of the Last Dark Age

Sometimes I walk in liminal realms.  Sometimes I see things that others don't see, or know things that others don't know.  This doesn't make me special.  Different, perhaps, but the vast hordes of Human Kith possess these innate qualities too.  They lie latent, waiting for song, mystery or discernment to awaken them.  If doubt or panic or hopelessness threatens to claim you, and you feel its teeth in the darkness - know that there are others striving on your behalf.  Not to save you, necessarily, but to reawaken your power.




Never run from your darkness.  The Shadow is your hooded guide through the psychic realms of Kith - a guide that can help you to acknowledge the buried or the denied.  Resolute, steadfast, adaptable.  Place your hand on your heart and know that the Earth is rising to meet you.  Even as the Last Dark Age approaches, there is a Manifesto of those working to relight the holy places within you.
