Self-Improvement and Interesting Knowledge

The World of High Strangeness and the Unknown

 

The paranormal is all around us. Whether you want to examine it, idolize it, rationalize it or merely ignore it, there is something weird going on and it just might not be swamp gas. A few things I have learnt along the way are:

 

  • It is always dangerous to idolize that which you don’t know because that there guppy might be a shark.
  • Rationalizing means that you think you have all the answerss; well show me someone who thinks they know everything and I’ll show you a zealot.
  • If you ignore it then you are just hoping that that which goes ‘bump in the night’ does not bump into you.

 

How about if we call the Paranormal the Unknown. There is nothing more fascinating to us humans than tackling the unknown. With that Indiana Jones spirit of adventure in mind, these articles are here presented in order to inspire, provide information, and offer your intellect some new possibilities.

  • My Partial Refutation of "The Richard Feynman Series Part 1"

    I just watched an amazing video by an American physicist called Richard Feynman. In it he lets you know about how he sees the world and how he as a physicist and a scientist sees beauty. It is inspirational and it shows you the wonderment and the drive that can propel man into the exploration of his universe. I have attached a link to the YouTube video at the bottom of this article so you can watch it. In this first video made about a series of talks that Feynman gave in order to promote scientific literacy, he talks about

  • How to Create a Servitor to Do Your Bidding

    A Servitor is essentially a servant that you create in order to do your bidding. It is a creature created on the astral plane that performs a certain task which you require. I am going to show you how to make a Servitor so that you can use it in order to help you. This is my version of creating a servitor, it is the John Kreiter special which means that it is in some ways simpler but also a far more powerful method of creating an astral being for your purposes. A servitor could be used to: Guard your

  • Was H.P. Lovecraft an Astral Traveler?

    “the world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind.” H.P. Lovecraft   Is it possible that H.P. Lovecraft was a dreamer? His writing forever changed our conceptions of the world around us and even though he wrote as a fiction horror and science-fiction writer, his concepts of reality have expanded the possibilities of our minds. His perceptions of the reality around us were so far ahead of their time and so completely unique in so many ways, to other Western writers of the time, that one could say he either had an incredibly powerful imagination or he had

  • What is The Occult Experience All About?

    You are sitting in a room, you look about you and you perhaps see a plant or a table. Unless you are extremely sick or have ingested some kind of mind altering drug, you can be quite sure that what you see out there is real. Most of us do not question the things we perceive with our senses. We can all say that what we see out there, what we experience, is real. We take it for granted that whatever we see in the outside world, whatever we perceive through our senses, is what is out there. It would

  • Our Mind and How it Clouds Perception

    Am I here now? This is probably the greatest question that you could ask yourself whenever you are trying to decide whether it is your mind that is clouding your perceptions. The concrete world around us exists because of the fact that our minds have been conditioned to only see this things around us in a certain way. Have you ever gone into a situation expecting certain things? Have you ever judged or looked at something with the expectation of seeing things in a certain way? I'm confident that you would say that you have, but would you believe me

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap-xUJL9ius This is really the fundamental secret that allows a small few to control the many. Books mentioned in the video: The Occult Experience Out of Body Experiences, Quickly and Naturally       We tend to be very sure of ourselves. You could ask just about any person on just about any topic that you like and he or she would tell you the way things are. When they tell you the way things are they will tell you in such a way that you will know that they are quite sure about what they're talking about. But can we

  • Our Arbitrary Conception of Life

    We are all members of a very shortsighted species. As I have discussed in other articles in this paranormal section, our perception of the world is very limited and yet we insist that our perceptions of reality are the only things that exists. We are like the frog stuck inside a well who thinks that the sky is only a 3 foot by 3 foot circle above him The frog having never seen the expanse of the sky outside of the well, only believes that the sky is a small and insignificant patch high above him. This frog might even

  • Time and Perception

    When we speak about the paranormal, we tend to be speaking about that which we consider the unknown. The unknown is a very large word in the sense that it could mean anything beyond our perceptions; for example the unknown to me could be anything that's behind me, I can't see behind me so essentially what is behind me is somewhat unknown. The unknown also hides within self-imposed barriers. These self-imposed barriers are beliefs; beliefs that are so powerful that we sometimes call them facts. A particular fact for example is the notion that time is a sequential affair. That

  • Are UFOs and Aliens Real?

    Arguably one of the hottest topics in the paranormal, is the existence of UFOs and aliens. As someone who has witnessed the UFO movement through many decades, it is quite interesting indeed to see the changes this movement has gone through. The most interesting and perhaps the most thrilling change to the UFO movement and the possibility of alien contact, has been what I have seen within the scientific community. When this movement really picked up steam back in 1947, the scientific community was very much against any kind of UFO phenomena or alien visitation here on Earth. The biggest

  • Are Aliens and UFOs Real Part 2?

    In the last article we explored the idea of UFOs and extraterrestrial aliens. We contemplated the possibility of their reality and we considered a little bit of the data that is available to us through different studies that had been done here in North America. Using the Condon report for example, we found that there was conclusive evidence, by highly skilled and competent scientists, that 16% of the aerial phenomenon witnessed by people is of unknown origin. I stated that this is a huge percentage, one that I would imagine raised many eyebrows in the scientific community. Whether you want

  • What are Inorganic Beings?

    When we speak about an entity such as ghosts or poltergeist, what kinds of creatures are these really? Even when we speak about creatures that we considered to be quite flesh and blood, like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster, could we sometimes be misidentifying what we see? When I talk about inorganic beings, please do not believe that I am negating the existence of flesh and blood creatures like Bigfoot or the existence of life beyond the grave like ghosts. What I am doing is presenting a seldom researched type of life form that exists on planet Earth, this

  • Exercise to Help You See the Future

    A key topic in this study of the paranormal, is the study of extra sensory perception. Extrasensory perception is usually defined as perception that goes beyond our usual ideas of what perception should be. That is perception that seems to be beyond our regular five senses. Many wonder if extrasensory perception exists, and there have been many studies, both scientific and otherwise, to try and prove the existence of extrasensory perception. There have been many studies for example to see if we humans can perceive the future. Certainly the ability to see the future and predict future events could definitely

  • Test to See If You Are Psychic

    There are many people who would like to be psychic. The interesting thing is that we are all psychic really, what tends to hold us back is our disbelief in our abilities and therefore our inability to tune into our perceptions. Perceptions which are usually called psychic or extrasensory, tend to be perceptions that are at the very edge of our attention; that is they exist at the very edge of our conscious attention. Being psychic therefore involves the ability to access nearly subconscious data. The better that a person is able to access this subtle perception, the more capable

  • Is The Theory of Evolution Wrong?

    When Darwin wrote “On the Origin of Species” on November 24/1859, it was indeed a monumental occasion for the emerging science of evolution. Scientists were finally given a theory that they were willing to get behind and like any new religion, its converts traveled far and wide preaching this gospel. This article investigates the possibility that science and its greatest tenet Evolution, are in many ways a new religion. How can I possibly make the statement that science is a religion? And more importantly how can I possibly doubt that evolution is concrete, proven, and very real? If for any

  • How to Do Astral Projection Using the Mental Projection Technique

    Astral projection, has been a very popular subject in the New Age movement for a very long time. You can find many books, that purport to teach you how to perform astral projection. Some of these books are modestly complex, and give you a number of different exercises that you can try, in order to achieve separation from your body. Other books that try to teach you how to perform astral projection, can be quite complex, and usually involve a set of energetic exercises, that you must perform over a long period of time. Whether complex or not, these books

  • The Biggest Obstacle for the Paranormal Investigator

    Having spent time around different paranormal groups, I have always found it very interesting that many of these intrepid paranormal investigators greatly fear that which they are looking for. For example, those paranormal investigators that are so popular now, those investigators that seek ghosts, tend to be deeply afraid of those ghost that they wish to find. When you first meet them, they seem to be a tough bunch, many of these paranormal investigators. They tend to put on a very strong front and they seem to handle chasing the paranormal sort of like going to war. After a while

  • Are Aliens and UFOs Real Part 3?

    In the last installment of our UFO series, we considered the conservative 5% of all of the ‘verified as’ unknown aerial phenomenon that is reported around the Earth. Within this 5% we contemplated the theory that much of this aerial phenomenon consists of physical interstellar craft from other planets. In this article we're going to explore the possibility that such aerial phenomenon could possibly be of an interdimensional nature. The human species has made some great advancements technologically within the last hundred years. Modern physicists and mathematicians have been able to postulate and can prove mathematically many theories that seem

  • Are Aliens and UFOs Real Part 4

    Thus far in our series on the possible existence of alien visitors, we have considered a number of facts and possibilities: There seems to be some kind of aerial phenomena happening in the skies of planet Earth that is being witnessed by many people from all around the world. While many scientific panels have been able to explain most of this weird phenomenon that is being experienced by people as being just natural in origin, there is still a large percentage of aerial sightings that remain unexplained. In essence there seems to be no explanation for 5 to 16% of

  • How to Banish an Area and Exorcise Negative Paranormal Energy Or Entities

    When researching the paranormal, it is sometimes the case that you run into people that need help. While paranormal researchers might be pursuing the occult, UFOs, and cryptids, sometimes the people that they run into during these searches tend to be normal people that would just like to forget what they saw and return to their regular lives. Unfortunately sometimes these people continue to be plagued by these paranormal forces and they feel that there is no way that they can escape them. Usually such people feel powerless in the face of this paranormal phenomena. Such powerlessness can make one

  • Aleister Crowley and The Book Of The Law Part 1

    Is there a hidden book that somehow explains the reality in which we find ourselves? Is there an odd and strange book, written by a crazy and yet amazing character, that would help to explain at least some of the many mysteries of this universe, and do so in beautiful and incredibly powerful prose? Believe it or not the answer to this questions is yes. The name of that book is “The Book of the Law” and the name of the crazy genius who wrote it is Aleistair Crowley. In a time of amazing figures and incredible history, Aleistair Crowley

  • Are Things Getting Weirder? Is the Weather Changing?

    Many people believe that the world is getting stranger by the year. Everything just seems more chaotic; remember that word ‘chaotic’, we are going to come back to it because it is very relevant to what we are going to talk about in this article. The weather is weird; all you have to do is look out your window or look at the news and you will realize that meteorologically speaking things seem to be in a bit of a mess. Three times this last month the temperatures went from the minus teens to the positives in a 24 hour

  • Why Most People Do Not Believe in the Supernatural

    As a writer I sometimes attempt to create a guest post for another blog. Contrary to my usual modus operandi, I tend to be quite reserved and a bit of a misanthrope, I will sometimes make an attempt to create an article that I might pitch to another writer or organization. During one of these attempts, I happened to notice something very peculiar about myself. I noticed that I took the existence of paranormal phenomena quite for granted. That is I believe in the paranormal and tend to believe that most people have the same beliefs as I do. While

  • "The Occult Experience": Question 1, Belief Creation

    This is an article created in order to help a reader with a question that came up while reading my book; "The Occult Experience". The Question is in blue and my answer follows.   Regarding the belief exercise in your book, why the long break after only a week of the exercise? Also, While I'm doing the above exercise, am I saying to myself that I believe with all my heart? This one is kind of confusing to me. When I look back at all the things I believe, the beliefs were established over time--sometimes many years. I don't know

  • Assumption is the mother of all screw ups

    I thought for a while about what section to put this article in. The reason for my troubles was that assumption is responsible for so many of the problems that we have. Whenever we assume something, we take it for granted that a certain thing is this way or that. To assume something is really to believe something without question, without any logical thought at all. I like to define reason as the act of making assumptions and for this reason I suppose I find assumption to be very reasonable. I define it this way because it is quite easy

  • Assumption is the mother of all screw ups Part 2

    In the previous article I discussed the idea of assumptions. I mentioned that when we assume something we are essentially taking it for granted that a certain thing is this way or that; we are essentially assuming that a belief is true. While it might seem quite natural, and it is for all of us, to engage in the act of believing in something; blind belief without question is always a perceptive funnel. The moment that you believe something without question is the moment that you limit your perceptive abilities. It is true that believing something without question can have

  • Is Santa Claus Real?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tIada30AtY It seems like an odd question to ask, certainly we are told once we get a little older that Santa Claus is not real. But could it be that our parents desire to have us ‘grow-up,’ is really a type of short sightedness on their part? That’s the funny thing about reality, specifically our shared Western reality. For a long time we did believe in those pretend creatures, those fairy tales, that magical world that existed in a subjective realm. Then we experienced a type of revolution, one could call it a scientific or rational revolution. During this time and

  • How to Develop Your Psychic Abilities

    There are many people who believe that they have psychic abilities, and many who defy rational understanding by displaying amazing feats of perception, such as; telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, psychometric, etc. It is perhaps the case that there are inherent gifts within all of us and it is therefore inevitable that many of us experience things that make us question the extent of our own perceptual potentials. Personally I know that most of the people in my life experience strange occurrences all the time, to the point that what we call sanity seems to actually be our ability to rationalize or

  • What is the 'Guardian of the Threshold'?

    This article is actually based on a question that was posed to me by a fellow paranormal researcher. Greetings, We’ve read your book Servitors and the other one on “psychic energy self-defence” (the “vampire way”); very interesting. The former (1st) one, in particular, has answered most of our questions on the case of Johnny Doe, who inadvertently created some “servitors” in his sleep while repressing some wishes. We recommended Johnny to practice the reverse breathing + all the visualization in your latter (2nd) book, along with some dissolution meditations. We got a question, since we are also into psychic research. Have

  • Tapping Into The Akashic Records

    This is an answer to two comments that were made on the ‘Create a Servitor to do your Bidding’ page. I have decided to post this as a separate article since it is a rather long answer and it does deviate somewhat from the servitor paradigm. The first comments are as follows: I’d be much obliged to hear your insights. I want to make a servitor to get information for me. For example, it might be interesting to find out how Hatfield made it rain, or how Orffyreus made a perpetual motion machine that convinced learned men that it was

  • Vampires are real! Their secret history

    The world is an extremely mysterious place, it is like a giant dark ocean that hides many secrets within its depths. Within those depths for example, there is an infinite variety of life, most of which, contrary to what science would tell us, exists completely outside of humanities purview. Besides being an infinitely mysterious place, this world is also a predatory world, it is generally the case that one life form will need to consume, some or all of another life form, in order to survive. In our modern society, vampires have become a very powerful archetype, for the hidden

  • The Three Great Secrets of Alchemy

    If we look around this world, especially now that we have so much access to information, things can seem very chaotic and downright crazy at times. Whatever you might think about the state of the world at this moment in time, one can make the case that everything changes, and that those changes seem to be happening at a faster and faster pace. From an Alchemical perspective, these changes are the result of an energetic flux, that has both internal (subjective) and external (from the world at large) origins. Further, it can be argued that the major thrust of this

  • The Cold Truth About Life and Our Place In It

    After reading my one book, Overcoming the Archon Through Alchemy, there are some readers that ask my thoughts, on what I sometimes refer to as, the Big question. That big question is in the background of all our minds, whether we consciously realize this or not, and this question has many different facets, because like all big ideas, its complexity straddles many different perspectives, possibilities, and potential future problems. This big question though, is only really consciously faced by a select few. These few are usually, but definitely not always, people that have the daring to ponder the big picture,

  • How to have lucid dreams, Even if you are Not a Good Visualizer

    Lucid dreaming is a fantastic adventure that anyone can learn to do, if, they are willing to dedicate some time and effort to develop this skill. Lucid dreaming is basically the ability to become conscious in a dream, that is the ability to realize that you are dreaming, and then be able to actively and quite consciously, move within, and change aspects of that dream event. A lucid dreamer for example, can easily make him or herself float and fly within a dream, and indeed this is my most favorite thing to do, when I am lucid dreaming. Lucid dreamers

  • Our Energetic Reality, the Unacceptable Truth

    We are all energy. All that we see about us is energy. We are not the hard unyielding things that we perceive ourselves to be. Ancient mysticism has known this for a very long time, and science has been able to confirm the fundamental energetic essence of things, for many many decades. Our eyes though tell us a different story, they impose a visual perspective that would have us believe that we are surrounded by objects, hard blocky things that bruise our skin, and generally have a bad habit of getting in our way…sometimes with fatal consequences. We could take

  • Trans-Dimensional Alien Secrets

    https://youtu.be/jQaDzPkB6Qs I have discussed in past videos and posts, the idea of the cube. In those posts, I have avoided a finely detailed description of what these cubes are, or what they might represent. The reason for this is that, as it is the case with all things within the rational perspective, trying to describe this phenomenon can be more unhelpful than helpful. What I mean by this, is that by giving this phenomena certain characteristics and boundaries, in order to try and describe it, I end up creating and propping up characteristics that, depending on the perceivers viewpoint and

  • The Coming Technological Singularity, A Most Important and Potentially Dangerous Thing Part 1

    https://youtu.be/BKB0w442w5I There is a great deal of discussion at this time about the singularity. The singularity, in a basic way is a coming together of a number of variables, and the coming together of these variables creates such an assembly of mass and structure, that a new state is achieved, a quantum jump is forced to occur. Often times this new state is described as a point of infinite or near infinite value, because in many ways, this new point, this singularity achieved, is sort of like a new door that opens up to a new dimension of possible action.

  • The Coming Technological Singularity, Part 2

In the last video we discussed the rapid doubling of knowledge, as one very powerful indicator of this singularity convergence. Indeed, the implications of this doubling of knowledge over time are nothing less than mind-boggling. As an example, in the last video we discussed a 2011 study by the American Clinical and Climatological Association, called, Challenges and Opportunities Facing Medical Education, by Peter Dense, MD, we

At least from the point of view of recorded human history, ours is the history of technological advancement, and aside from a hiccup or two, like the dark ages in Europe perhaps, humanity, and our place within this world, can be
