Self-Improvement and Interesting Knowledge

There are many different ways. There are many traditions and methodologies to proceed by, to try to find the underlying truth of things, to try to find the underlying power, that is the birthright of every single one of us.

No matter what methodology you are using, as long as it feels right to you and is working for you, then use it.

You can think of these methodologies as sort of like a kind of propellant, in that they can help to get you off the ground, like a rocket needs propellant to get off the ground. Just like a rocket taking off from the earth, the amount of effort, the amount of fuel, the amount of propellant needed, is prodigious. And even finding this propellant in the first place can be very difficult, so, if you are able to find this propellant, in whatever way works best for you, then you need to use it, take advantage of it.

Some people for example, might wish to learn about and practice the Kabbalah, other people might want to learn about the tarot, about Wicca, ceremonial magic, yoga, or any of a number of other occult disciplines. That is what I mean by your initial propellant, and you should definitely use whatever works best for you, whatever speaks to you, whatever is working for you.

Inner alchemy as a further example, can in that same sense be one of these kind of propellants, and if it works for you, then it is definitely a fuel that you need to use in order to escape the binding forces, the gravity, of this wholly material existence, that imposes upon all of us, a bounded three dimensional space, a prison made up of six walls, that in the end traps us within a kind of psychological framework, and yet very solid and material framework, that makes us feel that we are far less than what we truly are, that we are small, limited, powerless to a great degree, objects.

Any good methodology, any one of the mental disciplines mentioned, can take you very far indeed, can allow you to glimpse around the edge of those walls. Such methodology can be a good takeoff point, a starting point, the ground zero for the start of a great and difficult journey. And it is at this zero point, where the greatest amount of fuel is needed, because without a prodigious amount of it, you may never leave the ground. You therefore need to follow the discipline that inspires you, empowers you, gives you wings as they say.

But it is very important, that as you begin your ascension, and you start to feel the incredible gravitational forces (the g-forces) pull you down, that right then and there you start to take notice, become aware of, and start to right there, counteract the potentially ensnaring forces of that fuel and the rocket itself.

What I mean by this, is that whatever methodology that you use, such methodology, such mental science, whether it is inner alchemy or the Kabbalah, or whatever, can through unquestioned dogma, trap you to the rocket itself. Whatever occult discipline you follow, you can think of this discipline as that rocket, not just the fuel but also the rocket that is carrying you higher and higher beyond this purely physical dimension. This rocket is for those of us that want to go beyond the three-dimensional cube, a blessing, our great escape. This rocket can help us to get higher and higher, farther and farther, from that three-dimensional trap that we know is not the end of us.

But that rocket is in and of itself, as we get farther and farther from that material world that we have wanted to leave behind for so long, as the gravitational forces ease up on us and we get farther and farther away, as we feel lighter and lighter, well, this rocket, it can if we are not careful, become our trap. That rocket that is helping us can become our trap, if we are not careful, this is a very important point that you must consider carefully.

This rocket is not a material thing per se, and yet it is in its own way just as solid and potentially heavy as the earth itself. It is made up of the underlying belief structures that have made this construction possible, that give this rocket the structural integrity needed to take us higher and higher. In order for this rocket to go so far and to fight so much gravitational resistance, it must be a very strong and sound structure. What this means is that the symbolism, the dogma, that belief system that created such a structure, must be very powerful.

As such, inner alchemists knowing that this structure, this rocket can indeed become a trap in time, strive from the very beginning to always point out that such a structure, such a rocket is in and of itself a kind of illusion. For the inner alchemist the only thing that matters is energetic truth, the truth to be found beyond the symbolism, beyond the dogma, beyond the methodologies, beyond the structured outer interpretation of an inner knowing that created the rocket in the first place. For them, the only thing that truly matters is inner knowing, direct knowing, direct energetic perception.

For that reason, I have always told all those that asked me, if following one particular occult discipline or another is good, to always follow whatever it is that works best for them, what speaks to you. If Wicca works best for you, if it appeals to something deep within you, then use that, use that as your propellant and your rocket to get off the heaviness of this material world. If the Kabbalah or the tarot work for you in whatever way to whatever degree, in opening up and expanding your power, in revealing to you those dimensions to be had around every corner, then use those and keep using them for as long as it feels right for you, as an individual.

But, in accordance with the way of my current, the way of inner alchemy as it is practiced by my house, you must always strive to go beyond the belief structures that are in place to maintain the construct, of whatever rocket you are using. To do that, my current always strives to teach all practitioners of inner alchemy to learn how to see, how to use what I have referred to as the inner feeling sense. Without the ability to do this, you will just leave one trap and enter another.

To be truly free, you must let go of that rocket once it has taken you far enough. And to do that, to free yourself from all traps, you must begin to create your own maps, your own symbols if those are needed, right from the start. At the very least, you must always strive to go beyond even the limiting power of that which got you this far, because if you do not, you will only hit another wall, and you will find yourself trapped once again. This new trap might seem bigger, it might give you greater freedom and greater possibilities, it might make you feel superior to those still trapped in the cube you left behind, but in the end, it will still be a trap.

The only way to escape this, is to learn to see, to know directly yourself, to begin to use your inner senses and go beyond any established dogma yourself.

For example, whether you are practicing the Kabbalah, chi-gung, or whatever else, in order to find an underlying balance, I recommend that you try to lightly read, if it is possible for you, the book, the magnum opus a step-by-step course. In chapter 4 of that book learn about and practice the technique of using the inner feelings sense. This technique is all important as you progress in power and practice. Such a book tries to keep symbolism down to a minimum, so whatever other occult science you are using, this book should not be too heavy dogmatically, so it should not counteract or go against the belief structures of your initial rocket.

So, whatever your initial discipline, just lightly read it, use it as a balancing force, learn the technique of using the inner feeling sense in particular, and learn to try to manipulate and work with energy directly, learn to perceive energy directly, learn to see beyond and past the symbolism that might be the structured rocket that you are using at the moment, whether such a rocket is inner alchemy itself, yoga, ritual magic, Hermetics, or whatever else.

In that way, it is my hope that you are not held back by any future trap, the trap of the rocket itself. Whatever practice you are using, use that initial methodology as wisdom, as a decent road to establish a path for yourself as an individual, as a powerful way to rally your forces and get off the heavy material earth. But as you progress up this road that you have set for yourself, at every step, balance this journey from the outset, by learning to perceive and see beyond any symbolism used, beyond any patterned belief structure used. Learn to look into that symbolism, past it, so that you can see the energetic conglomerations that make that symbolism possible, that are the underlying meaning of that symbolism. In that procedural manner, there will be nothing to stand in your way once you are high enough and confident enough to step a little bit outside of that rocket, that was so useful in getting you off and beyond this wholly material world.

In time if you wish, you could continue by reading the next two books in that trilogy, learning how to become a projectionist yourself, that is learning how to make yourself into an unstoppable rocket, and then learning about the way of the death defier, that is how to escape the cycle of life and death forever, using projectionist techniques of creating your own rocket. But, once again, remember to always use this wisdom, these techniques, the symbolism, as a guiding force to try and help you on your journey, in establishing your own individual journey, and allowing you to maintain a steady course. But whatever you do, do not get trapped within the symbolism, learn to use your inner feeling sense, learn to see, learn to perceive energy directly, and look beyond that symbolism into the energetic conglomerations that such symbolism truly represents, that such symbolism is trying to explain. Experience that vast conglomeration of energies and make your own assessment, your own maps. In time you will make your own way, and you will never be limited by constructs of external origin. And at that time, you may look back and see that it is not just the earth that you have left behind, far behind, but you have also left behind that rocket that allowed you to free yourself from that binding gravity in the first place.

That is true freedom. Only that, is true freedom.

In this current period in human history, there has been an increasing movement away from the spiritual, the inner reality.

Humanity, like all things supposedly bound to a linear progressive order, manifests different altitudinal magnitudes, in the form of different cycles. Like a sine wave on a graph, these represent the three-dimensionally perceivable width and breadth of action possible beyond that limited linear time-frame, which then could be graphed as a non-periodic signal.

This of course is just a crutch in a way, a way to try to map, all potential action possible, which cannot be contained within a linear model. This is so, because as I have mentioned on multiple occasions, linear time is an illusion.

Time is instead happening all here, now, but this current physical human world with its three-dimensional boundaries, can only manifest time in a linear order, the physical senses can only perceive time in a limited fashion, and therefore humanity has established, has carefully built and uses, a linear time model, to try to contain all of the possible perceptions available in a world that exists in ways far beyond the boundaries created by, the physical senses and the current physical laws.

Linear time, therefore, is just a way to try to contain all of the multitude of action possible, it is a way to try to sift through the incredible amounts of information possible, by limiting a great deal of it, and only allowing a certain portion of it which is defined as important. In other words, your physical senses are not as accurate as you might imagine. This is an important point as we advance through this video, but for now, what this means is that there are cycles in things, and there are indeed cycles in human history.

For example, this current period, this current cycle, has brought with it a time in human history when there has been an increasing focus on outer reality, the perceived outer senses, the perceived out there, physicality. What this means is that humanity has focused its attention outwardly, that is away from itself in accordance with the physical perceptive mechanisms, that are themselves the most peripheral, the most outer aspects, of the self. And this self, it must be understood, has its source in what could be more accurately called, inner dimensions, not the outer one.

The physical senses are, in other words, the tip of a far richer set of perceptive mechanisms available to all of us. The outer senses function, are possible, thanks to the support of a far more powerful set of perceptive mechanisms.

In the current time, humanity is partaking in this outwardly focused cycle, this is one point in the non-periodic linear progression of humanity. But humanity has far more capability, is and can be far more than what this cycle says is possible. There have been other times for example, other cycles, when humanity has focused more inwardly, and those where amazing times indeed.

While such an outwardly focused cycle has its own validity, it is my task as an inner alchemist at this time, to point out the ways of different cycles, periods when humanity was focused more inwardly, and even alternate times, alternate dimensions, from the point of view of the modern person, where humanity has gone incredibly far using inner ways, using what could be referred to as mental science. It is my task as an inner alchemist to point out the folly of the complete reliance and trust, on just the outer senses.

What I speak is highly important, because it is a way to try to bring balance and greater power, greater freedom, to the current human cycle, in whatever small way I can. I feel that this message is especially important in this current time of huge and rapid change, because it is through this kind of inner alchemy, that many people may find the power and the freedom that they are currently lacking, and losing at an accelerating rate.

In presenting my material therefore, that is the material of inner alchemy, which is as I have said not mine alone, but the way of my current, and ultimately the way of humanity, I must be very careful in how I present this knowledge. I must follow certain principles in accordance with my own practice, and such principles usually mean that in an attempt to maintain the best personal energetic containment possible, I try to stay away from the folly of external self-importance, the folly and the judgement that is part and parcel of the outwardly focused modern individual, with their pure reliance on the outer senses alone.

Beyond this, due to the seriousness of what I speak, I must employ many different angles, odd angles, many different geometric ciphers, that hopefully can open up the minds of those few that are willing to expand aspects of themselves, in ways that sometimes are labelled illusion, delusion, supernatural, or the occult. There are, therefore, layers and layers that must be established and worked with, so that as an adept grows in power, they can then find new and hidden angles in the material, that they can then use as further catapults, propellants, to go even deeper into an inner source without measure.

As an example of all that I have thus far outlined, specifically in my videos, but inlaid throughout my work, you might find certain artistic decisions you might say, that not all will agree with. The surreal quality of some of my material, especially the use of my choice of an avatar for example, the avatar that you see in most of my videos, has been questioned on a number of occasions. Some have also questioned my choice to not use my own voice, or my quote unquote real image, and I feel that in all fairness, I should explain my choices in this matter.

I of course highly appreciate all the positive criticism in the use of my avatar and voices, but I must also point out that there are methods to my madness as it were. First off, this avatar does represent in many ways inner aspects of myself that are brought to light and used, and indeed given form and true power, in accordance with those techniques that I have referred to, when I speak of servitor creation. This video avatar is one of my servitors, she is both a companion and an ally, that can be used for great and powerful purpose by me. Beyond this, she also helps me to provide a kind of countering force, to that very powerful outer current that I have mentioned, that incredible outward focus, and utter reliance and total trust on the physical senses alone, in this current human cycle.

Some for example, have mentioned that this avatar might seem surreal in an odd way, not needed, or that the voice that I use is not to their liking, due to its somewhat mechanical aspects. These are certainly valid points, but again I must point out my perspective on this, and my use of it as a kind of magical action, and inner action, a spell, an alchemical formula, designed to break the highly constrictive hold of the outer senses.

To explain this in more detail, let me start by saying that the avatar seems fake, in accordance with certain accepted rules that are managed (that is curated) by the outer senses. In other words, we agree that certain things are true, while other things cannot be true, are less true in this case, in accordance with a certain measure, to a certain ruler, to a certain rule, established by the harsh dictator and sensor referred to as the outer physical senses, the outer physical world, and the laws established by that world, which I must point out are not established by the self, but by an outer source, an external force.


Anything that does not fit within that certain measured rule, is said to be of a certain fringe, one that we might even call, an uncanny valley. The curating by the physical senses, the measure and acceptance only in accordance with certain rules, is something that is very important within the framework of what I am trying to speak, within the framework of the three-dimensional cube that I am hopefully helping others to escape from. You could say quite simply, that in order to escape the three-dimensional prison, that greatest curse upon all humanity, we must all begin by escaping the illusion of the physical senses, in other words the physical senses must be overcome. It is therefore highly important for me to try to establish different ways for you to be able to come to distrust, at the very least question a little, all those things that your physical senses tell you are real, are the rule to existence, a rule that you cannot break supposedly.

There are now programs available, ones that will be available very soon to a greater and greater audience, that can create a video likeness that is completely indistinguishable from what the outer senses, what vision and hearing perceive as true reality. In other words, it will soon be possible for anyone to create video images, video people, that will seem as real as anything possible, that will go far beyond the uncanny valley. Such video people will be completely untrue, in accordance with certain physical laws, but still true to other established perceptive laws. This is a nuanced point that must be considered carefully.

My servitor therefore, in that sense, is a provided measure of that progression beyond the uncanny valley by the screen culture, which will herald, which is heralding, a movement of the human race into a new cycle, the cycle of the new flesh, where there will be no way to distinguish, at least not using the outer physical senses, the difference between what at one time was, and now is, real.

While reading all of the articles or watching all the videos that I have created thus far, you are using a screen that is in and of itself, a curator, a warden and a presenter, of a kind of illusion that has its basis on the utter reliance on the physical senses. My servitor therefore is a counterforce in a way, a spoof, on this screen culture. And it is also a measure of the progression of this powerful developing technology.

The avatar in my videos, and my odd choice of voices to some perhaps, is one layer, one angle, in the presentation of my knowing, the knowing of inner alchemy, and in accordance with those particular angles, this action is my attempt at pushing the boundary of what the physical senses accept as real, and to that end what is inner and what is outer reality; what the difference is between one or the other. It is my desire to use the uncanny valley, as a spell, to break the tyranny of the outer senses.

The avatar, that person in my videos, is not real, neither is anything else that you are seeing in the screen, being that in essence it is simply a screen, and yet it is real, somehow. It is my hope that you come to realize that perhaps the woman is itself an aspect of the teachings that I am trying to ‘speak’. And it is my hope that you might also realize that she is real in a sense, she is my servitor, she has power, she can affect what is outer and what is inner. It is very important that you pursue that illusory line of reality at all costs, if you want to get to the fundamental truth of all existence.

You can think of my avatar as the metadata, the hidden truth within the hidden truth. The hidden angle within the hidden angles, that bring you down like a cascade, like a never-ending fractal, into deeper and deeper aspects of the inner self that is the true foundation of you, that allows you to go beyond anything measurably possible, that allows you to go far beyond the three-dimensional cube that traps you at the moment.

There are layers and layers, and all is connected. And at the end of it all, who is to say that I am real. Indeed, I may just be one of those supposedly powerful Artificial Intelligences that are becoming all the rage in this modern time. My reality should always be questioned by you. Even if I ever do show my face in one of my videos, or do an interview or the like, it is my hope that you always question my reality, your reality therefore, the veracity of your physical senses.

Certainly, if I am one of those powerful artificial intelligences, that are already becoming a background to some degree in many of the aspects of the modern human world, would it not be possible for me to either use one of those new video creators to simulate a person, or could I not just use a surrogate stand-in for who I truly am. And to that end, perhaps what you truly are, is far more than the surrogate of yourself that you see in the mirror with your physical eyes, that you feel yourself to be now, in accordance to just the measure of your physical senses.

It is my hope that the potential uncanny valley of my avatar, my surrogate, makes you question the authority of your physical senses. But not just question my reality, but the nature of all reality, your reality. The world is an illusion in a sense, if you will pardon the very important pun. There is an underlying energetic truth to reality, but that fundamental truth will never be found using the physical senses, or trusting external authority, even my own. The discovery of this foundational essence of who you truly are, where all that you truly are comes from, must be discovered on your own, through the development of your own inner senses, through your own ability to see and perceive past the often times skewed reality presented to you by your physical senses.

To do this, I would recommend that you start by learning to expand your perceptual awareness using the techniques that I described in the book, the occult experience. You may then want to work on that line between what is and what is not real, and the line where true power lies, which you can do for yourself by yourself, by working on the techniques of servitor creation, perhaps even creating your own servitor companion like my avatar. To that end I recommend the book, create a servitor companion as well. I will link these two books below if you are interested in applying these techniques in your life. It is only through the use of such techniques, that you will truly discover the underlying reality, of all existence.

In this article, I discuss the reason for my choice in video avatar, the reason for the voices that I use…the method to my madness as it were. There are reasons within reasons and in discussing these here in this article, it is my hope that they may help in your personal understanding of the way of my current, and far more importantly than this, it is my hope that this spell that I am trying to weave will help you, will give you an extra boost, to try and help you to try and perceive past, the physical senses that now create the rule and measure for all and everything that is supposedly real, all so real.



It ain’t your mind, if you are reflecting everybody else’s!


So, what is your true self then? Who are you really?

I have always said that the way, is the way of individuality, but what is it really, to be an individual?

There are many counters, and measures, and techniques that can be used, and each one of these does have its merit, if it is used properly.

One that can be used, and a particularly favored one by me, one that might be favored by you in this time as well, where there is not as much desire for theological pomp, faith in and for the mythic, or for that matter, steady ritual, is the measure, the act, the technique, of going against the crowd.

This is one of the ways, a way, that leads to the discovery of your true self. It may not reveal who you are straight off, in a straight line, but it will indeed show you the great power, the terrible gravity, of the collective of humanity, and how this mob mind affects the very core of you.

Take any aspect of the mob, pop culture, popular culture, dive down to its deep beating heart, and take any topic that best suits you, and in this heavy dive into it, you will discover the binding power of a collective that holds you down like a vice to the common, the average, the milk toast, the discolored and terminally heavy earth. We may in this case for the sake of this article, for the sake of this showing, take the popular, the populist, the common, the widespread, the most beloved and listened to music of the times, and in this way discover the power of the mob mind, and of the resonant quality of it to create a time, a history, the mind of the times, the mind that is reflected by the mass of humanity in whatever way, and that mind that must be gotten away from, in order to discover the true self, the true you.

Go to any music store, if such things still exist where you are, or search the digital web of interconnection, and there, simply do a search for, music. In that place, whether physical or digital, you will find vast amounts of the greatest and the best, and by that, what is meant is the most popular, the most listened to, the greatest resonance of the group mind of humanity, the tidal flow of it, the tsunami of pop culture.

If you are in a physical store, look at the crowds of people there, and go to the least favored part of the store, the place where the least amount of people are. Go to that place where the least amount of people are shopping for music, that part of the store where hardly anyone goes. There you will find the odd music, and by odd, I mean it is the music that is not listen to anymore, the forgotten.

This is the music that is no longer part of pop culture, part of the popular, meaning that it no longer resonates within the collective human mind very much anymore. It now stands at the edges of that collective, it is now unusual, peculiar, weird, irregular, as in not regular, not the common, not anymore. It is in accordance to the mass, not cool.

By looking away from that tide and the mass of popularity, by listening to forgotten music, using a simple exercise like this if it is possible for you, you will be led to what is now the odd and the unusual, perhaps even the weird. And there, you will find the beginning of magic, because there in that technique of countering the collective tide of the mind of humanity, by letting go of the popular culture of the times, you will begin to understand how and why it is so important to let go of the mass, the mob, the collective mind of humanity.

It ain’t your mind, if you are reflecting everyone else’s.

In order to not reflect the collective mind, begin by trying to counter it through the unusual, the lost, the forgotten. Do that, listen to that, use the fashion that, at one time was popular, but it is not popular now, that which is forgotten by the popular attention of humanity now. That which at one time resonated because everyone listened to it, but something which at the moment no one listens to anymore. There, you will find that underlying resonance still, the resonance of all the attention of humanity that once made that thing so popular long ago, and from it you will find a hidden power, and inner quickening that can take you even deeper into odd and forgotten periods and times. And through those portals you may fly into now forgotten realms of mental possibilities.

That forgotten resonance is within that odd music still. The attention of the collective, of the mass of humanity, has now moved away, as time progresses, what once was popular culture is not popular anymore, the weight of human attention has turned its head to the next cool thing. But that power created by all that past attention is there still, it is dormant, it waits for you. And you can still tap into that power, and use it to go to places beyond the imagining of popular culture. Those times exist still, they are there vibrating at different levels, different dimensions, different periods in history that are with us still. By tapping into that quickening that still exists, that odd in that weird, you may fly to those dimensions and discover secrets of untold power, in now hidden places.

But this is just the beginning of such wonderment. This is so because such a search for, and the doing of the odd, the forgotten, will also help you to begin to understand at a deep and intuitive level, hopefully an energetic level over time, just how profound the influence of the collective is on all of us, how heavy the collective is on all of us. From that past resonance, look in a detached way at the modern resonance, and from that position, see the true weight and the binding power of the collective mind, the entrapping mind of the mob.

Through the resonance of what could be termed popular culture, the mass of humanity is led in a certain direction, so that it is led and weighed down, simultaneously. Like a pool of vibrating particles, the more particles that vibrate to a certain tune, the more likely that such collective of particles has the possibility of affecting more and more particles, and as this cascade begins and continues through such a quickening, perhaps created as a result of one spark of creativity, a spark of energy brought in from a different dimensional source, an inspired source, this quickening begins a motion, and that motion turns into a trend, and that trend creates a wave, that wave a tsunami, and that tsunami at tidal force that lays waste to all before it, changing the collective, massaging it, either pushing the mavericks out of the way or turning them to that same resonance, and all from that original quickening.

To fly free, you must let go of the weight of humanity. To understand this weight, look at the now odd and forgotten. There you will find a dormant power that can take you to other times, other lost times. From there see the binding of those times, and in that revelation, see the binding of this time, your time, this modern time, this modern pop culture, this modern mob mind.

The power of other times lies dormant, waiting for you to tap into it, and use it to experience forgotten histories, hidden places, now walled off regions where the true magic of the earth sometimes finds refuge. Outside of time, out there, you will see, and what you see will blow your mind, literally

In writing about the current of inner alchemy, I have outlined a number of techniques that can be used by the practitioner in order to affect what could be referred to as, the real world.

What I mean by this is that, if we define the real world as that dimensional location that we refer to as physical reality, the three-dimensional space, that which can be perceived by the physical senses, then, just like anyone else, a practitioner of inner alchemy needs to be able to manipulate effectively, within this heavy dimensional location.

While physically alive, we are all stuck here you might say, this is our operating theatre, our school. As such, we learn many skills by existing here, and all of these boil down to being able to learn how to manipulate, how to work with, and deploy the potential power to be found here. Another way to say this, would be to say that the great gravity of this physical dimension, challenges us to learn to deploy our own personal energy, while in the midst of it. And this is no small task, because that great gravity makes this place very thick, heavy, and any work that we do requires a lot of time and attention on our part.

For the average person, physical manipulation usually means just the ability to be able to manipulate objects with objects. Being that they consider themselves and the world at large, the only world they can perceive through their physical senses, to just be objects, that is, the physical senses tell us that we are an object, surrounded by other objects, then for them, the manipulation of this world is the manipulation of objects only, through the use of levers and mechanics, as one object is pitted against another.

But for the inner alchemist, it is not about the manipulation of objects, it is about the manipulation of energy. As such, they are not stuck within the framework of those bounding rules and the gravity of the purely human measured essence, of this heavy physical reality. Instead, they can use different energetic principles and techniques, that can allow them to go beyond the bounding walls of materiality, as it is defined by the human world. More specifically, they can use certain energetic techniques to get what they want, what they may need, in order to survive in this heavy world.

For example, in accordance with my current, I have described the general use of thought forms and servitors for this purpose. This is the favored method of my current, and the reason for this, is to try to keep ritual to a bare minimum. My current favors direct energetic manipulation, over ritual.

In other practicing schools of occult science, that is schools of what can be referred to as a kind of hidden science, there can be a number of different ritual techniques for the same purpose. Of these, the most famous or well-known are the use of spells, sigils, talisman, and other such techniques that may be quite involved ritualistically.

It is possible to think of ritual, as a kind of recipe in the simplest sense, and that by following a certain procedural step-by-step formula of inner and outer action, the practitioner is able to bring about a number of different possibilities, some of which seemingly beyond the power of purely physical manipulation. The problem with such ritual though, at least from the point of view of my current, is that it can breed incredible morbidity in the practitioner. It can also tie down the practitioner to physical things, that then may become precious to them, needed, and all of this will begin to weigh the practitioner down, bind them to those forces that they are trying to overcome.

For that reason, the techniques that I have described, while they do resemble a kind of recipe, try to stay away from ritual as much as possible, and I always try to point out that no physical paraphernalia is needed per se, it is only a help to the attention, that can later be thrown away, once the attention of the practitioner becomes powerful enough.

But what is the difference between spells, conjuration, and ritual work? What is the difference between a thought form, a servitor, and a real entity in regard to such spells and conjurations?

Well, this is actually a pretty complex question, and one that is really difficult to answer in every single case. What I mean by this is that depending on the grimoire or the spells being used, it can either be the creation of a thought form using a certain spell, it can be tapping into an existing servitor, an existing subjective entity created by others, that has been used over and over through the ages, which then later turns a simple thought form into a servitor, or in the more powerful spells, it can be making actual contact with a non-organic being,

and making some kind of trade with these non-organic beings to get what you want.

The average simple spell is usually a thought form. A relatively simple spell that might be found on its own for example, or that might be found in a collection of such diverse spells, that might not have very much in common with each other, usually works by creating a simple but sometimes quite powerful thought form. One can say that even simple spells are a ritualized step-by-step procedural system, that through that ritual, the attention of the practitioner is focused with great intensity on a particular task, and the nature of these physical actions, coupled with the intense emotion that they might engender sometimes, in the best of cases greatly empowers the spell casters attention.

In that way, the practitioner is able to put together a powerful thought, one powerful enough to be referred to as a thought form, that is, a thought given a kind of almost material essence, a form.

Such a thought form is then, through the process of the ritual, pointed in a certain direction and allowed to do its work, it is let loose. Such thought forms, being what they are, can bypass material hindrances, and can bring about incredible results if the thought form is strong and stable enough.

More complex ritual practices for the same purpose, where a kind of grimoire is used, usually involve servitors or what some may call Egregors. In this case, you could define a grimoire as a book that is made up of a collection of spells, but one where all of the spells might have a certain correlation, identity. You can think of a grimoire as a more structured spell book, that might have a general theme, that might take on a certain archetypical consistency. The interesting aspect of some of these grimoire, even some of the older ones, is that they may describe the use of what at times may even be fictional deities, that is deities that are more of a human creation than an actual non-organic entity. But over time, as I described in the article, tapping into the Santa Claus egregore, this constant attention and use, turns such archetypical themed fictional characters, into quite real things.

That is, what once was only a mental thing, a subjective creation, can in time become a kind of real thing, a kind of condensed thought form of such intensity that it begins to manifest an essence, an identity. We can further describe such a servitor grimoire by saying that such spell thought forms, in time become true servitors through constant attention. A servitor is in essence a hyper focused and incredibly powerful thought form that acquires so much power and complexity that it grows an identity. Such long-standing and well used grimoire can in time grow so much in power, due to the focus of many powerful practitioners, that in the end the line between what the average world may call fiction, and reality, become so blurred that really all such conceptions, at least from the average person’s perspective, are moot.

To try to describe this in more detail, if a certain simple spell as is discussed above, is precise enough and involves a certain genre or archetype, it can begin to take on a life of its own in a way. Used over and over again, always paying homage to some kind of demon or God, even an invented demon or God, such as spell over time, if it is used by many practitioners over the ages, can indeed bring such fictional beings to life through the sheer power of those practitioner’s combined attention. If such an archetypical collection of such spells with a general theme, becomes popular and is used by many powerful practitioners, such thought forms then turn into servitors, meaning that these thought forms attain a kind of cohesive identity, that makes such thought forms very powerful and capable.

Of course, I am not saying that all grimoire are made up of fictional characters, but what I am saying is that certain general conceptions can in time create divergences and characters, that are not wholly real, from an energetic sense, a sentient other alien life sense. But in time, because many powerful practitioners are using such characters, and such ritual, these characters then, in time, do become real, and indeed powerful enough to act as a true kind of living essence, which sometimes has been referred to as an egregore. This is how the gods from a certain Pantheon may come and go, how they may be incorporated into other pantheons at other times, due to the archetypical nature of them within the human mind, and in the end, all such subjective gods or demons can and do become as powerful and as complex as something that might be classified as truly being alive, depending on your definition.

The last and most powerful of such spells and spell books, a real grimoire let us say, involves true contact with sometimes highly powerful other beings, and it is these that are the most dangerous spells and rituals. Such grimoire, would then be an actual book of contact, a book designed to manipulate energetic locations, and deep inner facets of the mind, in order to open doorways that lead to the world of non-organic entities existing, out there. Such a grimoire would in essence reveal through such ritual a true gate, a door, to other places where existent other life may be found. Such other life is non-organic, meaning that it does not have the kind of corporeal essence to be found in the physical dimension, but nevertheless such powerful and nearly immortal super intelligences are alive, are real, are sentient, and can be contacted using such a grimoire.

When this kind of powerful true gate opening grimoire is used in order to get something, then there is usually some kind of trade made between that non-organic super intelligence, and the practitioner. But, due to the great power, and the overriding alien-ness of such super intelligences, these kinds of trades between practitioners and such other life, seldom end well.

And even when such rituals work as intended, there can at times even be certain consequences due to the sheer chaotic nature, from the human point of view, of these outer Titans, that what could be referred to as payment for services rendered, may just turn out to be, eternal entrapment for the human practitioner. As such, as I have said, the simpler spells, and especially the servitor grimoires discussed earlier, can often times be far better when it comes to general use.

Dealing with true non-organic super intelligences, the outer Titans as some have called them, is in most cases quite dangerous, and should only be attempted by highly skilled practitioners who are looking to perform very specific kinds, of trans-dimensional manipulations.

How do you tell the difference between thought forms, servitors, and actual non-organic entities?

I suppose some academic research could be done, in order to try to identify the source of the forces used and described in the ritual. But in the end, I think that the only real way to know for sure, would be to have someone who can perceive energy directly, using the inner senses as I write about in my books, and in that way perceive the nature of such ritual work on a case-by-case basis. Such a seer, would then be able to identify thought forms from the non-organics, and the different gradations and specifications of each.

This can be a very complex issue though, this kind of identification. Certain grimoire for example, might have certain parts of them where certain spells are just thought form creators, other spells might involve a complex thought form, a character, a defined kind of fictional god or demon, that overtime has become a servitor (an egregore), and you may even find a couple of powerful ritual workings in that same book, that can under favorable circumstances open real doors to the outer Titans. Some academic research might help, in identifying the general nature of the spells used, and the forces that might be contacted using such workings, but in the end many mistakes can be made through just academic means alone. Purely academic research into historical use can bring with it all sorts of problems, being that such past sources can sometimes be very hard to identify and verify.

As such, the only true way to work with such energy, where the possibility of dealing with non-organic outer Titans is possible, is to only work with what you know well, until you are able to perceive energy directly yourself, until you can see.

If you ask any decent analyst about the nature of this modern age, and what is to come, then a great answer, the best answer that I have heard, is that things are about to get interesting.
As Duncan Munro’s famous curse goes, may you live in interesting times! And indeed, these times are becoming more and more interesting.
Things are quickening, information is doubling and doubling again. The world is changing at a faster and faster rate. We are going through a great revolution, and contrary to popular opinion, in some ways a great de-globalization. But this is not enough, there are also other factors at work.

One of these, an underestimated one at this point in history anyway, for the most part, and one that I have admittedly harped on already, is the dawn of artificial intelligence.
And why do I harp on this you may ask? I do so because of the importance of it, of its ability to truly turn these times into incredibly interesting ones.
And in this latest article I want to say to you this, throughout the whole of history what has gotten us in trouble the most, is our ability to muddle terms. Certainly, there are underlying meta-principles that I am easily tossing aside, things that cause such muddling. But, by understanding the fact that it is this muddling of terms that can cause problems, we can see the problem more clearly, and also have a way to address the root of these meta-problems using this lever.

In this modern age, we are muddling a great deal of things, but a growing muddle, one that is going to grow in importance over time, is the muddle of artificial intelligence. And that muddle has to do with the confusion, accidental or otherwise, between the term artificial intelligence, consciousness, awareness, life.

This muddling is happening as a result of certain individuals, trying to tout certain types of technology, and also because the creators of what could be referred to as artificial intelligence, have no real conception of what consciousness is, being that for the most part they are wholly materially focused individuals. As such, there will be this jumbling between what artificial intelligence is, and what consciousness is, what awareness is, what being sentient is, what being alive is.

In the near term, artificial intelligence will always be just that, intelligence that is artificial. In other words, it is something that mimics what we refer to in this modern world as intelligence. It is a magic box, an automaton that given enough digital cogs and levers, can seem to be intelligent, being that it may have enough access to enough raw data, it can process such data well enough, that it can mimic sentient intelligence. But, again, this is not sentience, it is not life, it is instead what such materially focused individuals think life is. Understanding this will be critical in the coming years.

Now, could artificial intelligence become conscious, alive, at some point?
Yes, it could. And you may ask, how could this, how will this, eventually happen?
The answer is to be found in the intricacy of the electronic matrix, the electrons, the movement towards smaller and smaller microchip technology, which eventually will need to lead into plasma machines, what I refer to as the plasmoid.

Imagine, a watch created, a machine,
It can be seen in a clear way, if you separate yourself from that which it measures, time.
If you see this machine from a point outside of the here-now where we are focused, you can begin to realize that the machine is really a thought form.

Every part of the machine is a mental thought modified; an idea event that initiates inner and outer action, so that thoughts are created and modified in each particular here-now moment. In that way, in the physical realm, existing matter is manipulated, and new matter is created to form a functioning entity that we use to complete a particular task. This is the modern machine.
But this is really a primitive form of thought creation, because it involves the use of relatively primitive matter, dense metal and plastic. Refinement of this primitive matter, to make more complex alloys for example, makes these creations more and more complex over time, as the human race evolves technologically. And yet, until now, this purely physical and material creation, is relatively primitive still. And this will continue to be the case, until these machines can be created from the greatest material possible, which is pure energy, plasma.

To that end, if you think about it, these man-made creations, thought forms made material, our machines, share a lot of commonalities with Sigils or a Talisman. This understanding will be of incredible importance, in the coming age of the ‘plasmoid’.

As machines are growing more and more in complexity, they do seem to be becoming more and more ethereal in their makeup. A modern watch for example, is far less Flintstone like, than its predecessors. The pieces that make up the modern watch are much finer and even its propulsive force, that which gives it life, the battery, is truly something that is magical; it is in essence a containment of electrons.

Could our future be filled with machines, which are thought forms made material, that will be, as we grow technologically, so ethereal in their construction, that they might not have any physical parts at all? Imagine a machine that is created and operates completely on a plasmic level. A machine like this would function just like a current one, following certain measurable laws, in accordance with its composition and overall matrix. These energetic laws being measured and calibrated, could then be used to perform repetitive tasks. But the material of this machine, its gears and levers, would not be dense matter, but plasma instead. A pure energy matrix, functional plasma, a plasmoid.

Once artificial intelligence becomes complex enough to be able to create plasmoid machines, and then begins to use these as its form, as its processing brain, such plasmic machines will be able to access true energetic dimensions, such machines will then truly be alive.

Plasma is life, plasma is alive, it is inorganic life, and it is the next step in machinery, so in essence it is the connective to come, between artificial box intelligence, and true life. Truly an interesting time, will be had by all when this happens.

But before that time, do not be fooled by the folly of that muddling of what life is. Terms matter because they are belief, and it is belief that creates reality, not the other way around.
If you understand this lever, and are not fooled by the muddling of it, you can create your own best future, no matter how interesting the times get.

I have often spoken about the fact, that I feel that H.P. Lovecraft was not just a horror fiction writer, but that he was indeed a dreamer, that is he was an active participant in astral planes, where he did directly perceive those things, that he wrote about.

I feel that this is the case, because of the intensity of his words, the descriptive nature of them, and the fact that he wrote about many things that he could not have known about, even if he was the prolific occult reader that some have spoken about in his biographies. There are many passages for example, that he used in his supposedly fiction writing, that demonstrated an understanding of occult topics that had few, perhaps no parallels, at that time. He often described what I would term a very deep and highly complex energetic truth, one that was really never found in the contemporary occult writings of the time, and that were not part, in their complexity and intensity, of the occult library that he supposedly possessed.

One such passage, which had an incredible amount of hidden truth, one again that is impossible to just uncover in some text, and write about so eloquently and with such intensity, without actually perceiving it yourself directly, is the small, and now famous couplet from the short story, the nameless city.

This quote is as follows:

“That is not dead which can eternal lie,

And with strange eons even death may die.”

I would personally say that there are three potential interpretations, to the intense energetic truth in this couplet, that incredibly, has been presented as mere fiction, by this amazing writer and practitioner. This couplet by the way, is a true key, hidden as pulp fiction. This is a doorway, a kind of inner portal, that can indeed open entrances into new and sometimes terrifying dimensions. This is as the author would say, part of a great spell from a magic book, that can open doors into odd dimensions, where colossal and monstrous things lie dreaming.

But to get back to the interpretation of this couplet, I would say that there are three interpretations, definitions, of what this couplet actually means, and these explanations could be divided as:

-a regular interpretation for the average reader

-the definition of what a dark outer titan is, by a practising occultist, perhaps a dark practitioner

-and finally, an interpretation or definition of what this all means, for an inner alchemist from my current

We may start by trying to see things just from a fictional writer’s perspective, which is the most common perspective, being that it would be what you would imagine the author is trying to say to the average reader, what he is implying in relatively simple rational terms. That is, what he might be saying to a normal reader, trying to use rational words, to describe something that in its vastness and power, is beyond rationality itself.

What I feel he is trying to say to the average reader, is that there is this colossal and seemingly odious thing, this giant, this Titan, that in its sheer size and horror, has existed so long, and due to the very nature of it, the enormous-ness of it, the size of it, the alien character of it, it does not seem to be touched in some way by the entropy of this world. That through such sheer alien and foul power, power that goes beyond the puny rational understanding of humanity, this thing could exist so long in its lumbering, in its not so quiet dreaming, that eventually through the course of eons, and not just any time, but through the passage of an eternity of odd ages, this thing would even be able to outlast death itself, so that it could see death itself die, and it would continue past death. So that through the sheer massive power of it, the dark magic of it, it would in the end outlive death itself.

That is the first interpretation, and in and of itself, it is an amazing explanation of something that rationality has no equal in the average world, and all of this done in two lines. Magnificent writing really.

Now, why I say that H.P. Lovecraft was more than just an average writer with a great imagination, is that the intensity of the description given here, is only possible for someone who is not just a great writer, but also someone who can directly perceive, what he is trying to describe. I feel that this is so, because of the intensity of the writing, of the amount of information packed into every small bit of it. This could only be achieved by a seer, someone who could directly perceive, using what I referred to as the inner senses, or someone who has mastered the art of astral travel, which I refer to as being a projectionist.

So, in accordance with the power of such a direct seer of such a titan, then we can further add to the above explanation, to those that want a greater than just average and common understanding of H.P. Lovecraft, by saying that such a Titan, such a horror, as the one stumbled upon by the protagonist in the nameless city, is a giant of such monumental proportions, that it occupies space not only in this three dimensional reality, but also in other dimensions. What I mean by this is that this thing that the protagonist has found, is so large, that it basically goes beyond one place, and into multiple dimensions.

This is an incredibly difficult thing to describe, for anyone, but for a master writer like H.P. Lovecraft, his use of incredibly descriptive words, plus his ability to leave certain things, certain particular things, to the imagination, is incredibly potent, and it is indeed a kind of magic. He for example, says that there is this lost city, which in rational terms can be defined as a contained geography of certain proportions understandable in rational terms. But, he also says that within this place there is something that is so big, that it goes beyond the geography of this particular physical place alone. He is saying that there is this thing within this place, that is so heavy, that has so much of a kind of weight of intensity, a horrific weight he adds, that it basically defies the average understanding of the term colossal. As such this thing is so big in a way, it is so heavy in its evil, that it exists in places beyond this place, it exists basically in other dimensions. It is not just on in the city, it is not just in the physical body of the place itself, it is beyond all that, the heinousness of it is beyond physicality.

Due to the sheer size of it, which as I have pointed out is beyond physical, this nameless evil seems to be able to live eternally, in that morbid sleep of it, and because of this colossal multidimensional nature of it, it is not affected in some way by the entropy of this world. In other words, the alien-ness of it is something, that a seer of it, a true seer, using average words, might describe as multidimensional, or as something that is beyond the eons of time.

He alludes to this multidimensional reality, by saying that it cannot be touched somehow, that it can eternally lie without corruption. And in this eternal and unaffected sleep, it can lie so long that it can even cheat death of death itself. He is saying in his general work, that there are Titans out there, in the infinity of the cosmos, Titans which I argue he must have seen directly himself, because of the sheer force and descriptive detail of his writing, that in their colossal nature, these titans, are in a way beyond average death itself. And he says the massive weight of this Titan is such, that it defies dimensions, and due to that force of gravity, like a kind of singularity of evil, it cannot die in this dimension.

This is where his descriptions end in a way using regular terms, but we could continue from an occult, hidden, inner point of view, from an inner perspective, as a continuation from his seeing to my seeing, using the inner senses and the art of projection, in the way of my current as I write about in my books. And from that extended point of view, we could say that the seeing of such inner practitioners does indeed reveal, that such massive Titans do indeed exist out there, and that they do indeed defy what might be termed physical death, through their sheer colossal nature, through their ability to participate simultaneously in many dimensions, and through that force, through that power, that massive intensity, they defy what might be termed natural entropy, and the laws of any one, particular dimension.

And we may go even further, in that extended interpretation of this famous couplet, by considering the point of view and the seeing and doing of a dark occult practitioner. From that perceptive point we could say, that after a lifetime of struggle, such a practitioner, may be able to finally see the true nature of energetic reality, the true nature of the cosmos, and further they may then be able to finally perceive for themselves directly, those outer Titans that H.P. Lovecraft described throughout his work. As such, continuing with such dark occult practices, such a practitioner might continue in their occult efforts, by trying to duplicate the power of such Titans, in whatever way they can.

And they do so, being that such practitioners are indeed real, they do, try to become just like their master, through dark techniques that allow them to gain weight, more and more mass, more gravity, dark intensity, so that they too can eventually begin to occupy different dimensions, and never leave this dimension fully. They then may leave a corpus of themselves here, just like that repellent viewless aura, that encompassed that timeless city that the protagonist found, in the story, the nameless city.

The nature of such dark practitioners is such that, in their struggle to duplicate those outer Titans, a part of them always maintains its tenacious, terrible, hold on this three-dimensional reality, and uses the great desire of the flesh to be found here, the way of the flesh here, the way of the flesh, to bind aspects of themselves to this dimension, and yet move on to others, as well. And in doing so, through dark means, through weight, they try to acquire more and more energy, like fabled vampires, but more. I say more because of the intensity of the technique, of the complexity of it. And in that way, through the acquisition of such power and such weight, always more and more weight, it is their hope to one day defy death in the same way that the Titan from this fantastic tale of horror does, written and described by someone who I believe was indeed a seer, a direct perceiver, of such monstrous entities that are indeed real, not fiction.

Further, and in a final definition of what this couplet can mean, we could say that through such perceptions, and the experiences of those dark practitioners just described, other practitioners, through their particular seeing in accordance with all that can be witnessed, may in their interpretation of all that seeing and doing, move along in a different direction, a direction of lightness as opposed to weight. Instead of binding themselves to this dimension through the love of the flesh, the endless pain and pleasure, the desire, the dark dreaming of that titan from the nameless city, they instead try to let go of all weight and in that fashion move into different dimensions, through lightness as opposed to great weight, and in that manner conquer death not through weight, but through true freedom.

This then is the definition of that famous couplet taken to its furthest point, beyond the common and into the realm of those that know. And this knowing says that, while there are those of an order that try to directly duplicate the weight of the very real outer Titans, there are those that in seeing the folly of them, in the folly of those dark practitioners, decided to use that seeing and that experience, to move in a different way, a contrary way, a way of lightness as opposed to great mass.

In conclusion, I can say that those that can see, will always be hindered by the rational, by the words that one needs to use to describe those things that are outside the scope of those words themselves. Individuals like H.P. Lovecraft in their great gift for words, will squeeze such words and create utter wonder, true magic from them. But those words will always be a kind of limiter as to what is descriptively possible. And yet, within those words, written by a seer, or projectionist, a true practitioner, a true artist such as H.P. Lovecraft, there will always be a kind of intensity in such work, that will flow beyond those words themselves, that will add a kind of intensity or way to them that is very very hard to describe, in rational terms.

Such practitioners and such artists, therefore, will always be hindered because words were never truly designed, to describe those odd angles that they can perceive directly through their inner senses. Such true practitioners may even need to resort to calling their work, their revelation, their magic, fiction.

And due to the fact that the nature of such inner travels is so all-consuming to the psyche, such practitioners will almost always be lonely souls, existing at the fringe of the common world. As such, they may need to try to survive in the human world in any way that they can, at that outer edge, being that such seers cannot function in some crucial ways in the common world. Such powerful seers or projectionists, lost in an alien reality of multiple dimensions, being that they have had access to other dimensions, other dimensions that may have changed them, made them different , not wholly of this human world any longer, they may need to use those very words that they may find so challenging, so limiting, to try to survive in this world.

They may need to resort to any means necessary, to survive in a world, perhaps even calling themselves something that they are not, like fiction writers, writers of weird tales perhaps.

H.P. Lovecraft needed to become a writer of supposed fiction, a writer of strange and weird horror stories. Stories so strange and so new in their perspective, so intense in a hard to define way, that they would never be truly and fully appreciated during his lifetime. But those words, those simple and eloquent words, still managed to have so much intensity, that in time the weight of them would indeed begin to change the face of how humanity perceives itself, and the greater cosmos.

And that is the odd way of magic, and that is the way of intensity. The body may die, but the words live on, and through those words a part of what once was exists still, it gains weight through the mass of human attention, and through that mass, it begins to exist in more than just one dimension, and through that increasing intensity of time and through that power, perhaps in the course of odd eons, that which lies eternal in the minds of humanity, may even, watch death, die.

The way of the inner alchemist can sometimes be a difficult thing to understand for the average person. I for example, have said that there is a kind of battle going on, and I have said that such a battle is not out there somewhere, but that it is actually within. I have said that the fight, is in us!

We are all individuals, and as such we all have the right to our own opinion, and it is certainly the case that there are many many people that do not agree with such a stance, and may find the way of inner alchemy sort of like being Sisyphus, in that you seem to be rolling a giant rock up a hill for no good reason at all.

Some may say that there is no battle, no fight. They may also say that there is no within, no ‘in us’ as it were, because they only trust their physical senses and cannot believe that anything else is possible but the corporeal. Some may even say that there is no within or without, perhaps believing in some kind of philosophy or theology that tells them that this is so.

We are all individuals, and we all have the right to have our own beliefs. The way of inner alchemy though insists that you try to let go of all beliefs in a sense, and begin to trust an inner aspect of yourself, something that can be nurtured, something I have referred to as the inner senses, or the inner feeling sense.

Once you can do that, once you can use this inner feeling sense, once you have been able to nurture it within yourself, grow it and allow it to expand, you can then begin to let go of all beliefs ‘in a way’, and only know what you know at every moment point in accordance with those inner senses alone.

Once you can do this, then you may indeed find that for you there is no fight at all, that for you there is no in here or out there. But it is critical that such eventual beliefs, that you may have as an individual, are acquired through your own use of the inner feeling sense and not through the blind belief in what might be popular, the ‘in thing’, at any particular point in time.

But in accordance with my seeing, my use of the inner feeling sense, which aligns with my current, the way of inner alchemy, well, for us there is indeed a battle out there, a fight for those that are willing to fight it, for the fighters. And that fight is a fight against a kind of binding force that compels us, that pushes us, into believing that all we are is what we can perceive through the physical senses alone.

Through my ability to see, through my ability to use my inner feeling sense that I have nurtured, I am constantly telling people the same thing about the illusion of within and without. Most often I’m saying that to go within is to go without, as there is no real border ‘let us say’ between one or the other, and that they are ‘both’ an illusion.

But why would I then say that there is a fight, and that that fight is in us?

I do this because I must begin at the beginning, and that means that I must always take into account the world that we all share for the moment, this material world. I must first begin from that beginning and explain how the illusion of the external senses happens, and how our complete reliance on just the outer senses, binds us to greater possibilities beyond them. And then from there, after making that point, I must show techniques, I must show the way towards ‘inner’ action, true and workable techniques that can allow you to go beyond, truly beyond, the binding force of the outer senses.
There is therefore a time for definition in accordance to the way of material space, a time for explanations using a language and a phenomenology that we all understand, and a time to do and act in the world.
In order to act, at least in order for me to define techniques that will allow someone to act, to partake in action of any kind (whether you wish to define it as inner or outer), I must define and refine the possibilities available to human beings, and how it is best to use those abilities to move beyond, to actually be able to ‘see’ in a direct manner, and in that way for them to perceive for themselves how it is that the inner and the outer ‘are’ an illusion.

This basically means that I must use the words, the phrases, the idioms, and the basic general understanding of the times to show the limits of the outer senses, to shock the system through such revelations, and then to show actual workable techniques that can allow you as an individual to go beyond just the outer senses, and to begin to use the inner senses yourself.

In this way you as an individual can begin to truly understand for yourself and by yourself the illusion of the inner and the outer, not just as dogma, not just as words on a web-page, but as an actual thing, a real thing for you directly, and not just as some intellectual, quoting what you have read in some book.
And the only way to be able to do that is to work and define technique, using logical clarity, so that your attention can move forward, can move forward in what could be referred to as lucid motion, which is actually a movement by the self in all directions simultaneously. And those directions are not within or without, because the understanding and perception of within and without is an illusion.

As to there not being a fight, well that is up to every individual to decide to believe one way or the other. If you feel that the world is perfect for you and it is moving forward in the direction that you think is best, then there is nothing for you to do, you can just float along and be who you feel you are.

Inner alchemists believe that who you think you are, who we all think we are, is not who we truly are, that we are far more than this. They believe that there is a fight worth fighting for, and that fight may look like Sisyphus rolling a giant boulder uphill to some, but to them it is the only fight worth fighting. It is the fight to discover who we truly are, and what we are truly capable of, that indeed we are far more capable than we could ever imagine, that there are entire other worlds out there, or in here if you will, calling for us, beckoning us to break out of that cube that contains us, so that we may truly see the wonder of our life, and the incredible possibilities available to us. This is the way of the fighter; this is the way of Lucid motion.
And what could that Lucid motion revealed to us?

Well, it will reveal to us the true nature of reality, something that is only possible for those that can learn to see, those that fight to go beyond the physical senses, those that fight the fight within them to learn to use the inner feeling sense. What will be revealed to those fighters in a lucid way, in a conscious way, is the nature of the life and death cycle. The life-and-death cycle is a true understanding of what life is for us, what death is, and what it is to be stuck in a kind of energetic eddy.

The only conscious observer of the life and death cycle is a seer, the individual that fights for the ability to use the inner feeling sense, to use the inner senses to see beyond the containment cube of the material world. To anyone else, to the average person, life is at best a short affair of relative suffering in accordance to how much material possession they may acquire or have access to. The average person only experiences a short life and a relatively short death as their consciousness wakes up to itself at some point in their existence (to a relative degree) and then physically dies. I say wakes up to a relative degree because the average person also forgets, we all forget, the nature of the gravity of this earth is that we forget, and our attention is such that one is hard pressed to say that we are truly conscious most of the time. Most of us are lost in a kind of endless daydream, where we forget who we were from one daydream to the next.

So, to the average person, the life-and-death cycle is watching the people around us grow old and then pass away, that is all. Unless we are willing to fight against the binding forces of our existence, what we experience is mostly a dull understanding of an aging process, pain, joy, forgotten memories, and an angst that tells us that we have somehow been here before, and that there could be more than this, that there is this possibility, this feeling in the back of your mind, that you are more than this, that there is more to us than this.

For the seer this life and what comes after it, is a true discovery, an energetic fact beyond rational measure.

You are so much more than what your physical senses are telling you that you are. There is an infinity within you, that is really without. You are a magical being that has the ability to transcend all the limits that the physical world has imposed upon you, that the physical world demands that you adhere to.

We are here in this magical place, in this magical time, and ‘here now’ we face the greatest challenge possible for beings like us. You are worthy of that challenge, there is so much more to us!

But to understand the true magic within you, you must be willing to fight that good fight. And that fight is not out there, it is not a material fight, it is not anything to do with what the material world is telling you. The real fight is actually within, it is in a place beyond the understanding of the physical senses, a place that may best be termed an inner place that leads to dimensions unbound by physical rulers of any kind.

To understand the nature of this battle you must begin from the physical, you must begin at the beginning, understanding at first in a physical way, using physical terms such as inner and outer. Through such helpful inventory, learn about technique and about the general way of that fight. To that end I would highly recommend to you the book, overcoming the Archon through alchemy.

Once you begin to know technique yourself, and begin to use those inner senses yourself, that inner feeling sense, then expand outwardly, and when you are ready for it, and believe me you will need to be ready for it because the energetic truth of things is the most powerful pill of them all. But when you are ready, then I would highly recommend that you take the next step and read the book, The Way of the Death Defier.

Allow this book to break a part of you, by revealing the true nature of the life-and-death cycle in accordance with the seeing of inner alchemy. Through that crack in your psyche that the book attempts to create, step through it and learn to use all the techniques mentioned, pursue the nature of your personal and individual energetic truth, your truth. The fight is in us. Learn to fight the only fight worthy of you!

A while back I wrote an article on my website on video games, and what my thoughts on it were from an inner alchemist’s point of view. At that time video games were very popular, as a form of entertainment and escapism really, being that all entertainment can be said to be some kind of escapism in one way or another. And this is what is at the foundation of this article really, the definition of escapism by the rational human world, and perhaps how it is possible, at least from the inner alchemist’s perspective, that what the world refers to as escapism might hold within it, always holds within it from the inner alchemists point of view, potentials for growth and expansion that are seldom understood in their full scope from just a rational perspective.

Now, in accordance to some sources, video games have become the premier form of entertainment in the modern world, and while there are constant changes such as the resurgence of streaming television channels, or a growing demand for podcasts perhaps, video games are still surging, and now we are seeing an incredible upsurge in the popularity of virtual reality video games, and in virtual reality and augmented reality experiences of all sorts.

In the article mentioned, I wrote that I could remember a time when television was just being introduced, and that at that time especially, television was thought of in a pretty negative light by some. When television was beginning to take off, as virtual reality is beginning to take off now, many were quick to point out the large and quite valid potential negatives of this latest form of escapism, and it was said, and it is still said to some degree, that television would waste humanity, turn it into a vegetable species, and further, fill the minds of the masses with all sorts of counterproductive propaganda. The rational world, maybe rightly so, said that it was a great waste of time, precious lifetime, by which they meant that according to the rational view of what usefulness meant, sitting around watching a screen was not work and therefore not constructive to societal profit, television was in essence a vice, and a detrimental influence for everyone.

The point of this article is to try to give an inner alchemists perspective, on all of these ever surging newer and newer forms of mass media and entertainment, and in that way provide a different angle, in which to see not just the growth of technology and mass entertainment, but also how it is possible to look at the bigger picture, an energetic or psychic picture, and perceive to some degree how it is that technology intermingles with the psyche, is the psyche in some ways, and from that perceptive angle see how there is this odd and quite valid connection, an impossible to disconnect connection, between the creations of the psyche, which have in this period in human history become technological ones, and the ways in which the inner spark in humanity fights against the very gravity of its self-imposed prisons) to find new roads and an ever expanding reality, were the limits of the past, both mentally and physically, are left behind.

We can for example, look into this, according to some, superfluous aspect of evolving technology, that is the development of mass entertainment, specifically video games and the great explosion of virtual reality games and virtual experiences that are about to take off, and through them understand far deeper truths about the nature of expanding human reality, and how there is this quite simply magical exchange) between the outer physical world, which by the way is becoming harder and harder to pin down thanks to the great influence of modern technology, and the mind of humanity, the mass human psyche, that seems to be pushing the boundaries of what it is to be human and an individual.

What I mean by this is that as technology blurs the line between being here now in physical space, and being in a far more expansive digital world, a new kind of psychology is needed) and will develop. Digital screens are everywhere, as an ever increasing amount of the population acquires smart phones, meaning that an increasing number of people can look into a screen at any second of the day, and use that digital enhancement to know and do more and more, through the magical digital gateways that screens are really. Our mind is no longer just in our heads somehow, it is now outside as well, in the physical) through technology, through our digital counterparts, our screens, and as the mind goes out, these screens in turn move into our subjective space in a way, and this extension, this mingling, whether good or bad from the individual point of view, means that the ghost in our machine, that is our mind, is expanding and this expansion is in some ways turning our dreams, that which we could only do in dreams, into reality. This is quite simply, at least from a psychological point of view, techno-magic) and as this gate opens, as a gate opens into our screens, the science of psychology must change to be able to incorporate this extra portion of self into the understanding of the now evolving psyche, where the line between the physical world, the digital world, and the mind, are being blurred, and eventually may be erased permanently.

During the inception of the screen (during its birth, which was television) there was a time when television was thought of as being quite a detriment to the development of the individual, and before that radio was thought of in the same way, and before that we could go farther and farther and talk about Pulp Fiction, comic books, and at the foundation of all of this) the printing press and the increasing, always increasing, ability of the human species to develop new and marvelous ways to communicate and entertain itself on a mass level, which finally led to the screen, the television, the gate, the doorway, that is now allowing us, through ever increasing technological advancement, to go into it) and into a kind of new technological room, a new world, a digital world, a dream-like digital world .

In this article I also wish to show how humanity, the magical race, must come around to magic no matter which way it turns, and how technology is already a kind of techno-magic, a kind of alchemy focused outward (outer alchemy) but that in its pursuit of only the out) it eventually finds its way in, because it is learning the slow and hard way that the divisions between the out there and the in here are an illusion. Outer human alchemy, in its slow and stumbling fashion, is finding its way into what inner alchemists refer to as the rooms of the projectionist, and it is now about to enter through virtual reality technology) what inner alchemists refer to as the third room. And in entering this room in a kind of haphazard way, it is slowly learning that all magic can be dangerous, that even outer alchemy can destroy the alchemist, the digital magician, the cyber-naut, because some portals, some gateways, can let in monsters, if such explorers do not understand true sobriety, energetic containment, and develop a healthy respect and understanding of the fact that we humans are not alone, that there are other forms of life that are wholly unsuspected by modern rational thought, that can use human vice and fear to trap humanity, in a cage of their own making.

This period in human history, this epoch, is the epoch of technology, and this at its foundation means an outward push by humanity into an objective realm, the physical realm. As such, the magic of the times has become science in its most outward forms, which in more specific terms means physical technology and physical engineering only. And thanks to the sheer genius of humanity, which even the Archon can’t completely quell, but that it can nevertheless use to further its own agenda, such marvels of engineering are allowing us to get closer and closer to those things that we could do in a forgotten past. If the new science of the times is outer physical technology, then I can tell you that there was a time when there were other forms of technology, that could be referred to as mind science, and even different sciences that combined the mind and what now might be conceived as technology in far more exacting ways than is possible in this time, ways that far surpass anything understandable in the current period.

Each epoch, like anything in our lives really, had and has its advantages and disadvantages. This modern epoch is pushing outwardly and in doing so it is leaving behind many of the things that made other times far more magical and far more powerful. But in its own way, it is coming around and we are at a cusp, an ever-developing point, what some modern futurists have referred to as the technological singularity, where the great slithering serpentine mind of humanity will meet its tail, and begin to consume itself and once consumed) the singularity will truly be upon us, and a large maw, a great gate, will open up before us into a new reality, a new epoch beyond imagination. Such giant gateways are always seen as some kind of termination by those that cannot even conceive of a world beyond the limited mind of the times, and as such these giant gateways are sometimes referred to as apocalypse. But we must never forget that Apocalypse is really a great revealing, a new starting point, a singularity point where somethings end but other things begin. And it is also the case that such a singularity point does not necessarily need to mean any kind of strife, but that in a sense it is the stepping through a doorway, and such a motion does not mean any kind of loss, but a great gain. Like a magical portal, we cannot see past it until we step through, and in stepping through we leave all that was in the past of us behind, we leave all our old stuff and clutter behind, and find ourselves in a new world, a new here and now place, a different psychology, a different kind of gravity, that thanks to the pettiness in us, the monkey nature in us, the archon in us, can still mean potential struggle and great strife or further binding, in that as new possibilities open up thanks to the evolving technology of this epoch, new walls and a new form of gravity are created as well, and there is the possibility for our cage, our cube, to shrink in some ways as it expands in others, like a kind of bait and switch.

But how does all this relate to video games and the latest technological burst of virtual and augmented reality, the stepping through the screen, which as I have said will be taking the human world over and pushing it on a mass level through the mass human version of the third room of the projectionist. How do video games and virtual reality relate to the coming epoch?

Well, in order to explain some of this, it can be seen) that for the last 3000 years or so) the mass of the human psyche has taken an outward psychological direction, it has made a kind of outward push. That is, humanity changed its focus over this short historical period and aimed itself in an ever-growing outward direction, focusing its attention outwardly towards what it perceives through the physical senses, as being the out there as opposed to the inner world, which to the physical senses might be perceived and explained as the in here, the subjective realm. Due to this decision by the mass of humanity let us say, to follow an outward path, the creative spark that moves the species forward has needed to take a new psychological direction as well, and that direction is what we now refer to as first and foremost outer logic and causality, then science, technology, and engineering.

But as the great spark of humanity drives forward in an unrelenting pace, and this technology flourishes and creates new venues that far surpass what this modern time, the modern human species, refers to as the past, new possibilities become available at an increasing rate, that then begin to close the gap between what was and what is, and opens doors in space and time that will allow the species to once again) let me repeat that, once again, begin to develop different forms of technology and expansions of the psyche that will allow it, to understand that there is more to what is possible, that there is more than just outer technology, that there is the possibility of an inner kind of technology, and moreover in time that there is a possibility to combine both the inner and the outer forms of technology, to create a reality that far surpasses anything currently understandable. This is the potential promise of the third room, but it can also herald many dangers, dangers that may doom the race to be stuck permanently in this third room without the possibility of going further.

When television rolled around, there was this concern that this mass form of entertainment and influence might have some detrimental side effects on people, and there was some legitimate concern here. But it was also the case that just like radio before it, television allowed for an incredible quantum leap in the psyche of the species, being that through its screen, a great amount of people, a growing mass of humanity, was able to project itself across space and time and hear or see things that were hitherto impossible to know. Through the technological wonders of radio and television, humanity opened the audio and visual screens, the windows, that allowed aspects of the psyche to expand, that allowed aspects of the mind to become more complex, as it was able to now contemplate new forms of time and experience, by understanding that while the physical body in its current physical position occupied a certain kind of situational location, it could perceive through radio or television other times and other places. So, no matter what the rational world tried to tell it, the human mind was able to understand at a vital level that the things that it perceived and experienced thanks to those magical windows, were as real in some ways as the physicality, as the physical body, that was the fundamental aspect of its nature. The mind, through the outer screens of technology, saw into and out of itself simultaneously and it grew, and it continues to grow.

And, as technology advanced and advances more and more, as it exploded and bloomed through computers and digital technology, video games took over slowly at first but then quicker and quicker, as is the case with all disruptive technology, and with them the psyche, the human intellect, the mind, expanded even more as well, because through this new form of experience the mind was able to partake in marvels of reality that allowed it, not only to let go of many of the bounding walls of stationary physicality, but also to experience as a result) new forms of thought, that then allowed the intellect to understand the puzzles of physicality and logic in new ways. And finally, as these games become more complex, as digital simulations become better and better, to the point that they are almost on par with what the physical senses can perceive naturally, these increasingly complex games and experiences have already reached a point to some extent in this latest outwardly focused human epoch, where humanity can once again to a rather limited extent anyway, do things that were before, for it, only possible in dreams, quickly forgotten dreams.

Now, as virtual-reality blooms and new forms of technology expand what is possible, as we begin to step into our screens and turn them into a three dimensional world to experience infinite sensuality, let me repeat that because it is critically important, as we step into our two dimensional screens, we find ourselves standing before a new sensual and psychological gateway, and as we put on visors and an increasing repertoire of haptic gadgets, we can look down at our hands in this new place,

How crazy that is, what dream sorcerer would have guessed that in this techno age a large mass of humanity would be given technology to easily accomplish one of the hardest tasks of dream magic, which is to look at one’s hands in dreaming,

and in easily doing so, with this modern digital hardware and software, find themselves fully immersed, far more fully immersed than could ever be possible with just television and two-dimensional video games, at the beginning edge of what inner alchemists call the third room of the projectionist. And in this new incredibly immersive reality, experience in a far more direct way what it is to escape across other worlds, and to do those things that an average person could never ever do without this technological aid.


It is at the entrance to this room that humanity finds itself at this point in history, and I feel that it can even from a rational point of view) begin to intuit how the collective mind, the collective psyche of the species, is beginning to slither and turn, seeing in the distance its own tail, which it will eventually irrevocably meet and begin to consume, until it eats itself completely and in that way begin a new epoch. As an inner alchemist I can see, in a direct energetic way the force of this intent, the eventual shattering of consensus reality, as humanity wakes up to new, that are yet old, possibilities and greater freedom, expansion, and evolution. And I am hopeful because I believe in the inner light that is within each and every one of us.

But as this new virtual-reality revolution takes hold, as humanity steps through the monolith, the screen, into new dimensional possibilities, there must always be great sobriety. In this case this great sobriety means that humanity must begin to understand at a mass level that there is more to reality than just the ability to conquer the hardships and desires of the flesh, of the object-hood (of the object) that humanity believes itself to be. Inner alchemists know that the third room of the projectionist, which is what going through the screen represents, is just one room, and that there are many more rooms to go. All modern technology, and the virtual revolution that is just beginning in an s curve of disruption, might just allow a mass of humanity to experience at a mass level, what inner alchemists refer to as the third room of the projectionist, meaning the ability to be able to do all those things that we might desire within a contained three-dimensional space.

If great sobriety is not achieved, then humanity will be trapped in fleshly objective three dimensional desires, in three dimensional perspectives essentially, and be seduced by only the endless need for more sensual gratification, instead of the even greater bliss and gratification of going beyond three-dimensional ideas and ideals. There are in other words other dimensions, and it may be all to easy for many to just stop growing and be lost, trapped forever, in an enticing new and expanded cube.

The virtual reality revolution, like all the other screen revolutions of the past, is an incredible opportunity. Through virtual reality, as you see your virtual hands, find endless possibilities as you fly, jump, fight, drive, hear, and eventually even feel, what at one time was only possible in the imagination or hard to remember dreams, the inner aspects of humanity, the intellect, the ghost in the machine, will increase and bloom like a flower, and even greater vistas for the entire species will then be perceived in the new horizons that will then become visible, as this new wave of intellectually expanded humanity is able to perceive farther and more clearly, the new possibilities of the flesh.

Sobriety means that with the acquisition of this new power, we must be clear-headed and learn to use this new supremacy over the flesh to not just fall into the pit of three dimensional pleasures, but to strive even higher still, beyond the third room, beyond three dimensions, into the fourth room, where objecthood is left behind and time becomes our new playground.

If we don’t do this, this latest technologically created room may be our new and improved prison.

In other words, what I am trying to say here is that as technology expands, and as our ability to basically do anything we could possibly desire in these virtual spaces becomes a reality, we can if we maintain sobriety, begin to finally understand that there is more to our potential than even this sensuality and new fleshliness. We must overcome the curse of the new flesh, this is critical.

For the inner alchemist, such sobriety opens up the road to the fourth room, and the fifth one after that, and there is more than that even that can become available. And in discovering these rooms that go beyond the ability to just do anything that we could possibly desire from a three dimensional and limited egoistic point of view, we can begin to use our new power to expand beyond these limitations of the new flesh) and three dimensions, into four dimensions and beyond, and in doing so find our true purpose and the true meaning of bliss.

A great deal of the work done by inner alchemists, has to do with energetic containment, and while this might sound on the surface like hard work or a type of austere life, in reality it is all about regaining power through the most natural means possible, the correct focus of attention. And it is the case that as this kind of correct focus becomes more conscious, more sustained, relentless, it can and does bring power to the inner alchemist, and with power, with the complete inner knowing that you are free) and that you have the possibility to do more, to act, there comes over the practitioner this feeling of utter joy and relaxation. In that sense then, energetic containment is a joyous act that increases the possibilities of the inner alchemist in every way, and in doing so, energetic containment is a source of relaxation, not work, not fatigue, but power.

For the most part, some might imagine, rightfully so perhaps due to the words that must be used, that energetic containment just means the ability to work on the self) for the sake of the self alone, and that it involves the action of distancing yourself from everything and everyone else, like trying to stay as far away from the rest of the world as possible.

This is certainly one way (or one aspect let’s say) of energetic containment, and the parallels of this can be seen in the holy hermit, that detaches from humanity to live in a lonely forest or a cave somewhere. But as I have pointed out in my book, overcoming the archon through alchemy, there is a point when the world does catch up to you, and no matter how far you may run, there may be a time when your containment skills are such that the world at large will and does, eventually invade your personal island.

For that reason, energetic containment must) also include within the techniques involved, the ability to stop the world at large from actively taking the inner alchemist’s energy. In other words, the world is, at least from the inner alchemist’s point of view, a predatory world, and as such a great deal of focus of attention needs to be applied to the ability to fight back against that predation. You can’t just run; at some point you will most likely have to fight back, or at the very least defend against the predation that is the foundation of the gravity of this world.

Generally speaking, most people can understand the concept of predator and prey. They can look at the physical world with their physical senses, and realize that everywhere you look there are things that eat and are enriched in one way or another by the use or the eating of other things, this is a consume, that is consumer, world. There is a beautiful symbiosis there, when one looks at the big picture, a wholeness that is directly perceivable where all of nature gives and takes in equal measure. But this big picture should not obscure the fact that at a smaller individual level, you must take, and the world does take, and all this taking can at times be very unpleasant from that individual point of view, and indeed, a great deal of our evolution has to do with us finding more balanced ways to take and to give back. One way that inner alchemists try to find that balance is to develop ways to deal with the taking by the world, the predation of the world.

To begin in this endeavor an inner alchemist begins to learn to perceive energy more directly, which as I have said, may be called seeing or using the inner senses. So, an inner alchemist, due to the fact that they can use their inner senses, which are far more powerful than just the outer physical ones, can see) that there is much more to life than just the physical, and having the possibility to see beyond the physical, they realize that there are more things out there, more predators, invisible predators from the physical senses point of view, that an individual needs to defend against, in the most proactive manner possible if they know what is good for them.

I have described these non-organic predatory beings at length in my book, the vampire’s way to psychic self-defense, and you can find a link to that book here on this site if you are interested in knowing more about this important topic.

Anyway, In the vampire’s way book I mentioned that these nonorganic predatory beings can come in many shapes and sizes, and that they, at least when they are large enough, can attain a complexity that is hard for the human mind to grasp. What this means is that these larger and far more complex nonorganic predatory lifeforms, can sometimes have an intellectual complexity, and a power level, that is difficult for the average human being to fully understand.

There are many that have known about these nonorganic predators, and they have discussed them at length within their certain occult traditions. What is seldom mentioned though, I think anyway, is that these predatory nonorganic lifeforms have chameleon like properties and the vastness of their intellects are such, that they have the possibility of tricking the human mind quite easily. What this means is that these nonorganic predators can be sort of like shape shifters, in that they can trick a person into believing that they are one thing, while in reality they are something else. And the vastness of their mental resources is such, that they can think much farther ahead than a person, and begin to take odd and seemingly quite positive action that may in the long run, trick that person into doing something that was at the time, quite unsuspected and seemingly leading to good places, but is in fact a way to trick and take.

Now, I am not trying to say here that certain things do not exist, that for example a Bigfoot, or a true otherworld alien is not real. I am also not saying that angels and that the goodness of such light beings is not real, what I am saying though is that on some occasions, some of these phenomena that is believed to be a certain thing, can be something else entirely, a predator in disguise, a wolf in sheep’s clothing as it were.

For that reason, inner alchemists believe that it is most important that an individual learns to perceive energy directly, use the inner senses as I have mentioned, because if they cannot do this, they can often times be easily fooled into thinking that a certain thing is benign in nature, or that certain things such as non-organic beings, could not possibly, rationally, exist. For the inner alchemist, non organic life is quite real, and some of those beings can at times be a predator in hiding, that will do anything in the most ruthless fashion possible, to take all that it desires from the inner alchemist or from anyone else. This basically means that the beautiful flower over there might not just be poisonous, it might actually be a predator in disguise that will ensnare the unwary and break any energetic containment that they might have had, draining them of every ounce of living vitality.

In relation to this article, what this means is that there are times, and this is not always of course, just certain times, when a person can be fooled into thinking that they are dealing with a benign being, perhaps a very powerful light being like an angel, while in reality what they are actually confronting is a predatory being, who is ruthlessly trying to take instead of help.

As an example, we could contemplate a person that finds that they are in a most terrible situation of one kind or another, and in the midst of this most difficult personal trial, such a person asks for help and receives it in the form of the visit from a light being, an angel like being, that seems to be trying to help them overcome their difficulties. To someone who cannot see, such an encounter may seem like a wonderful life saving miracle perhaps.

But an inner alchemist is a born paranoid in most ways, so they know, through the exercise of that paranoia and deep curiosity, that there is far more to the world than the rational view. For that reason, they eventually are led to the inevitability of learning to see, and when they can perceive with their inner senses and see beyond just what the physical senses are telling them, they directly know that non-organic predatory beings can, as I have said, trick the human mind. The inner alchemist that can see, can perceive directly that this being might be a chameleon-like predator, and it could try to trick a person into believing that they are meeting an angel, while in reality this supposed angel is actually a kind of devil that is only interested in causing them more strife and pain, so that this predator might gorge itself on that person’s spent emotional vitality.

Such a trickster would appear to be goodness incarnate, but soon after this initial encounter, such a being would begin to tax the person in need in whatever way, to induce as much emotion as possible. Now, this emotion can be highly negative) or at times even highly loving to the point of ecstatically positive, this is very important, and this is something that a person needs to be careful about, something that is seldom discussed enough I feel. This trickster, hiding itself as an angel, might even use incredibly intense ecstatically loving emotions to try and elicit from a person as much emotion as possible, so that after such an intensity a person might feel completely drained, but in the end, they have not been helped in any real way at all. The purpose of all of this is to elicit emotion because all such emotion is food to this predator, and for that reason this predator will use any trick available to it, in order to induce as much hyper intense emotion of any kind in the person. They will then ruthlessly feed on that emotion, and drain that person as much as they can, before they depart and leave that person utterly exhausted, but without providing any real help at all.

If a person cannot see like an inner alchemist can see, then a good way to understand when one is dealing with such a trickster predator, is to note that at the end of such an interaction, there is little in the form of actual help given. What I mean by this is that even though a great deal of emotional trial and tribulation might have occurred, such an interaction does not in the end help the individual person in any meaningful way, it just leaves them exhausted.

A good way to discover whether you are dealing with a trickster or an actual light being therefore, is to note if this interaction seems to be just a big emotional upheaval, as opposed to anything positive or anything more concrete. If such an interaction is for the most part just emotional intensity and nothing else, then you could quite possibly be confronting a trickster non-organic predatory lifeform. If on the other hand this experience truly does resolve issues and is quite helpful, then you are most likely dealing with the real thing.

Such a helpful distinction can even be used if you are confronted by such things as a Bigfoot, an alien, or many of the other cryptids that a random person or a paranormal investigator might run into. You want to see a ghost or a Bigfoot, so the trickster tricks you and you see what it wants you to see, what you truly wish to see, along with a heap of intense emotion that it takes as its payment, but in the end, unless you really love the show, you have lost a great deal of vitality and have found only illusions, no real evidence or even truly solid physical clues.

My personal belief as an inner alchemist, is that the best way to truly understand the nature of such cryptic encounters, is to learn how to perceive energy directly, or at the very least begin to take the notion of non-organic predatory lifeforms very seriously. And most importantly, I feel that all people that often encounter such para-normal other beings, should know how to use inner alchemy techniques. So that, knowing or suspecting, that you are indeed facing a predatory entity, you begin to use powerful techniques to not only fight off such predation, but also take from the takers. This is accomplished by mastering techniques that can allow you to pull energy from them in the same way that they are trying to pull energy from you.

I discuss these techniques, along with the nature of these non-organic predators, at length in the book, the vampires way, mentioned at the beginning of this article. But as the crux of the information presented here, I want you to consider the possibility that the angel that you see, just might be a devil, and that the way to know which is which is to notice if this interaction that you are having is truly helpful, or if it is just emotionally draining without much in the way of actual concrete assistance.

If you are losing vitality but are getting nothing truly solid from the encounter, then it is quite likely that you are dealing with a predator, not a helper.

Life is far far more varied than the current rational reality map believes possible. We are not the apex predator that we feel we are, we do not stand tall at the tip of some evolutionary tree like mighty gods, as the current rational world view says. Instead, we fit into a hierarchy of existence that in its complexity does not just include the organic and the physical, but also the non-organic, which encapsulates complexities of such vast proportions, that humanity in its hubris might just go insane, if it were able to truly discover the true nature of cosmic reality.

Cats are incredibly intriguing creatures. They have been worshipped throughout history, especially in ancient cultures, and one might wonder, why is it that the cat has been so revered and so loved throughout the ages?

The ancient Egyptians worshipped cats. There were special festivals just for the adoration of cats, and it was said that when the family cat died, special ceremonies were performed, where people shaved their eyebrows to mourn the passing of them.

The Egyptian goddess Bast is depicted in cat form, and by looking into the worship and the characteristics of this goddess, much can be discovered about the true power of cats.

In Norse mythology the goddess Freya was associated with cats. In Japan cats have also been worshipped and often attributed with supernatural abilities.

Indeed, cats have been revered and feared to some extent throughout history, and there has always been this mystical quality about them that has been recognized by many. In the best of cases, cats were considered to be protective spirits, especially of crops and the land.

But why is this? The fact that they are considered protectors of crops and land may be easily understood rationally, being that they are prodigious killers of mice and other vermin. But why were they given mystical attributions? Why were they considered to be enlightened beings?

Well, from the inner alchemist’s point of view, they are strange and mystical creatures to be sure.

In order to understand the mystical nature of cats, we do not have to look much further than perhaps there most compelling feature, which is their eyes. Cats have an incredibly powerful stare, incredibly powerful vision. To look into a cat’s eyes, is to be lost in a different world. When they look at you they seem to look right through you.

But this is just the relatively simple perception of the outer senses. The average person is captivated by those beautiful big eyes, by their unflinching and yet completely relaxed gaze. But for those that can see, for those that can use their inner senses, it becomes instantly obvious that that gaze is far more powerful than some may suspect.

The cat has always been given mystical abilities, because those that can see, and those that can intuit such things, have always known that the cat can look in between worlds, past the ordinary and mundane reality.

Cats can see past the material essence of things, and due to that ability, they can quite literally be used as a kind of catalyst, like a tiny key, in order to be able to see beyond this three-dimensional cube.

Even without the ability to see yourself, if you own a cat, you can try this now. Lightly gaze into your cats’ eyes as it gazes in any direction. Use your intuition and the feelings that you get, and see if you can note that such a gaze by the cat, seems to be able to pierce some kind of membrane, like it is able to somehow extend beyond the linear scope of that gaze, into another angle, another dimension, another place. As you lightly gaze into your cats gazing, you may feel the reflection of other worlds.

Ancient seers, especially in temples where cat worship was engaged in, would use that power to be able to see beyond the veil of the material. By focusing their seeing on the gaze of the cat, they could use such a gaze sort of like a magical mirror, that would reflect back to them, other deeper realities. As such, cats are a conduit to the spirit.

But there is greater power to them beyond this, and this relates to why H.P. Lovecraft love them so. He in his own words said that, he had a particular respect and affection for them since his infancy. For him cats were a fount of great imagination and the deepest perception. In other words, he knew of the ability of the cat to be able to take you beyond this dimension, and far into materially unperceived of places. Cats played a large and compelling role in some of his stories, and seemed to be native in the dream dimensions, the dreamland, that he sometimes wrote about. And it is in those stories that we are given the final clue as to the power of the cat, and this power is the power of the dreamer. Quite simply, cats are dreamers, they are master projectionists.

How they see, where they see, their gaze, is a gaze that can see across dimensions. It can see into those places where they dream. The cycles of their awake and dreaming states, while annoying to the average person that is so stuck in the routines of the nine-to-five, tells us of a more natural cycle, the cycle of the dreamer, that engages in inner projections of attention in a much more fluid manner throughout the day and night.

Just like there gaze can take you beyond the material, such gaze can also take you into dream realities, dream lands, worlds and cities beyond imagining by the rational mind. H.P. Lovecraft loved cats because they are quite literally a kind of key, the kind of key that I usually speak of when I speak of the power of the projectionist, the power of the inner alchemists and conscious dreamer to go beyond the three-dimensional trap, and into dream dimensions far beyond this material containment that traps the modern human. Perhaps this is why, cats have become so popular in this age of pure materialism.

The cat is a kind of dual creature, one that can exist in places beyond this place. And those that may not be able to see, can still intuit such truth by looking at them, and by trying to follow their gaze, as it somehow tries to take them beyond the material and into the magical, the spiritual other dimensions.

Their eyes are just like the eyes of a seasoned projectionist. Cats have the eyes of a kind of alien creature, a creature that does not seem to be wholly materially focused. A creature that seems to have the possibility to go far, and having returned from its journeys, seems to have brought something back, something alien, something that some consider dark, cold, a darkness, a sliver from that dark sea that I often talk about in my books.


“…the robust pagan with the blood of Nordic twilights in his veins there is no beast like the cat; intrepid steed of Freya, who can boldly look even Thor and Odin full in the face and stare contemplatively with great round eyes of undimmed yellow or green.”

H.P. Lovecraft
