widely held opinions are often irrational

“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”

― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations


Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor

Marcus Aurelius was a stoic philosopher and a Roman emperor from 161 AD to 180 AD, the last of the Five Good Emperors and, according to Wikipedia, “the last emperor of the Pax Romana, an age of relative peace, calmness, and stability for the Roman Empire lasting from 27 BC to 180 AD.” The stoicists believed that practicing virtue in one’s life was a necessary and sufficient condition for happiness, which they called eudaimonia. The literal translation of eudaimonia is “good spiritedness.”

Meditations contains 12 books, but historians think that Marcus Aurelius wrote Meditations for himself, as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement, and that the book was never intended by him to be published. Although a Roman emperor, Marcus Aurelius was a deep thinker and nothing like the mindless leaders and politicians of our day. He believed that it was important to develop a cosmic perspective on life, and to understand that everything we see comes from Nature.

Some pretty smart and wise people lived 2,000 years ago.

2,000 years later...

The quote above applies to our lives today because the majority opinion changes depending on what fear porn is currently being promoted by the mass media and on social media.

“The economy is collapsing!”

“We are now at the beginning of World War 3!”

“If we don’t raise the debt ceiling the government will default!”

“If we don’t lower our carbon footprint humanity will be destroyed by climate change!”

It just goes on and on and on... and there’s a new one every week. These insane narratives – all of which are lies – are promoted over and over again by a mass media whose purpose, it seems, is to spread fear porn and chaos. It is easy to go along with these narratives because not to – as the talking heads and the social media gurus tell us – makes us social outcasts. We feel stupid not to join the majority.

But the majority opinion is often the insane opinion. The majority opinion is often just a narrative – a collection of lies and half-truths designed to scare us. For example, a 4th-generation farmer in South Dakota is being threatened with an eminent domain lawsuit – the precursor to seizing his land – so that a private corporation can build a “carbon capture reduction pipeline” on his property. According to MIT’s Climate Portal,

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) refers to a collection of technologies that can combat climate change by reducing carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions. The idea behind CCS is to capture the CO 2 generated by burning fossil fuels before it is released to the atmosphere. The question is then: What to do with the captured CO 2? Most current CCS strategies call for the injection of CO2 deep underground. This forms a “closed loop”, where the carbon is extracted from the Earth as fossil fuels and then is returned to the Earth as CO2.”

If this seems nutty to you, well, it is. There are a lot of climate change grifters out there, and they are making a ton of money on incomprehensible programs like these. Part of this majority opinion includes the idea that raising cows is environmentally dangerous because it raises the carbon footprint, and farming itself is dangerous because of polluting fertilizers and gas-guzzling farm equipment. The government of the Netherlands believes just that. The Dutch are the greatest farmers in the world, but their government wants to shut down farming to a large extent because it is (supposedly) environmentally dangerous. Type in “Netherlands farmer protest” into your search engine and read all about this craziness! What is truly dangerous are nutty opinions like this.

The Majority Opinion is that global warming is going to destroy the climate and the planet. But like many majority opinions, it is crazy. Here is a graph  that shows 4 consecutive years of decreasing maxima in the past four 11-year solar cycles:

The last four 11-year solar cycles.

As you can see, for the past 44 years the sunspot numbers – a measure of the amount of solar radiation that hits the earth – has been decreasing. The planet warms when the amount of solar radiation increases, and cools when it decreases. The Majority Opinion doesn’t want to examine the science, because it conflicts with the fear-porn global warming/climate change narrative and the grifters who benefit from it.

Today, Marcus Aurelius’ maxim holds true more than ever.

It seems like a good idea to me to develop a more cosmic perspective on life, like Marcus Aurelius did 2,000 years ago. This involves recognizing our own spirituality and connection to the Infinite. And it would probably be a good idea to observe nature and pay attention to the vast, underlying harmony we see there. Through nature we can perceive the face of the Creative Source.  

technology can't replace wisdom

Transhumanism, and its offshoot transgenderism, is being forcibly imposed on our society. Transhumanists believe that the biological human body is faulty because it gets sick and only lives an average of 80 years. Why not redesign the body so that it lives longer? Better yet, why not create a superior intelligence – AI – that can reorder human society for the better?

There’s one problem. The technology doesn’t exist to do any of this. And so a PR campaign has been substituted, a campaign to convince humans that AI is well on the way to artificial general intelligence (AGI): a synthetic, non-biological and superior intelligence smarter than humans, and then, ultimately, artificial super intelligence, a God-like, man-made creation that learns infinitely fast and which can bootstrap itself and rapidly evolve to replace humanity on the earth.

If this sounds like a psychopath’s wet dream, you are not wrong.

Update: “AI” is Fake

To see what a scam AI is, and the recent AI driven “Chatbot” craze,look at this article: “To increase lagging vaccination rates, scientists developed specialized AI actors to talk to people online to convince them to get vaccinated. This was done in response to all-important but unmentioned “stakeholders” demanding that chatbots be deployed to improve vaccine acceptance among the refusers.” And guess who funded this push? The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, of course. You know, the people who push vaccine products the Big Pharma cartel couldn’t sell in the West onto African kids.

It’s always great to know that the AI advising you is being funded by an objective source! Regardless of whether you think vaccination is a good idea, it is clear that these so-called “AI” Chatbots are just another way to promote a narrative.

Here’s another example of fake Chatbot “AI”: It’s title is, “We are Grunt Workers,” The Lowly Humans Helping Run ChatGPT Make Just $15 Per Hour.“ was reported this week that the extremely popular ChatGPT artificial intelligence chatbot is being “guided” by lowly humans making just $15 per hour. The company that owns ChatGPT, OpenAI, is reportedly “paying droves of U.S. contractors to assist it with the necessary task of data labelling—the process of training ChatGPT’s software to better respond to user requests,” according to Gizmodo. The article says they are making just $15 per hour for the task of data labeling, wherein data samples are parsed and labeled to help AI “learn” quicker. The task was described as “pivotal” for ChatGPT's AI processes. Worker Alexej Savreux said: ‘We are grunt workers, but there would be no AI language systems without it. You can design all the neural networks you want, you can get all the researchers involved you want, but without labelers, you have no ChatGPT. You have nothing.’”

And finally, this: “OpenAI had previously outsourced work to Africa, where it could get away with paying workers as low as $2 per hour, Gizmodo wrote.”

This is not “AI,” this is a scam. AI is being used to promote narratives.

AI is a scam. Chatbot is a scam. I’ve read a number of articles from people who have used Chatbots. When users ask questions relating to current events, the narrative is always the same: the government line. On climate change, on political questions, the answers reflect the Party line.    


When you analyze the Transhumanist movement to fundamentals one obvious thing appears: The people who promote it operate out of a fanatical and overwhelming fear of death. Transhumanists are materialists and believe that when your biological body dies, you’re dead. This is a preposterous belief and can only arise because of mental, emotional, and spiritual confusion.

Moreover, they believe that consciousness can spontaneously originate in a computer network or a magnetic field or some kind of artificial container.

These people have lost their divine connection to the Creative Source, and are desperately trying to create a parallel life form. Anyone with self awareness understands that the soul – the conscious personality that is associated with the body – is immortal. Maybe you don’t like only living 80 years at a time, but don’t fret. When the body dies you get another lifetime, and another, and another.... We talked about that in the article The Spiritual System.

As Jeffrey Prather says, “The creations of the Creator are far more sophisticated than the creations of the creations of the Creator.” In other words, AI is one very, very large level down in wisdom and intelligence from humanity. We don’t know what we don’t know, but if the AI program continues we’re going to discover how destructive it can be.

I can understand why scientists would want to improve the human body and make it last longer. But the technologies that are being developed are dead-ends. Elon Musk just got permission from the FDA to place his neuralink inside a human skull. These neuralinks have hundreds of fine little wires that stimulate areas of the brain, and require dangerous surgeries that are so complicated they have to be performed by surgical robots.

From Musk’s site

“Advanced, custom, low-power chips and electronics process neural signals, transmitting them wirelessly to the Neuralink Application, which decodes the data stream into actions and intents.” I’ll bet it does! You too can become a controlled biological robot.

“The N1 implant controls neural activity through 1,024 electrodes distributed across 64 threads. These highly flexible, ultra-thin threads are key to minimize damage during implantation and beyond.” The keywords here are “minimize damage during implantation and beyond.” Yeah, these implants have long-term damaging effects.

Let’s look at what Musk’s implants did to monkey test subjects. CNN has an article that states: “Elon Musk’s implant company Neuralink, which aims to enable brains to connect and communicate with computers, has acknowledged that monkeys died as part of its testing procedures, but denies allegations of animal cruelty.”

This is the kind of self-contradictory denying of reality that is used to justify experiments on animal life. Now, of course, with these wonderful results (which only killed a few monkeys after all) our FDA has approved it for humans!

With excess mortality rising because of the experimental mRNA vaccines in many countries (first noticed in Q3 2021, 6 months after the worldwide vaccine program was implemented, by statisticians working for insurance companies), it is quite obvious that our medical establishment regards human and animal life as mere test subjects. This became obvious in Pfizer’s own clinical trials before the vaccine was released, documenting hundreds of adverse reactions. Pfizer wanted to withhold the trial results for 75 years but was overruled by a Federal judge. I wonder why that was!

Transgender surgeries mutilate children and make them impotent. These surgeries castrate young boys, sterilizing them, cut the breast buds from girls, and also perform hysterectomies and vaginoplasty – surgeries that create a vagina. In this surgery the penis, testicles and scrotum of boys are removed. Transgender surgery issues drugs that induce temporary or permanent infertility, or block or delay normal puberty.

What kind of person would want to castrate a young boy, who may not have even grown out of puberty?

It’s all part of the spiritual war. Tranhumanists (transgender) vs biological humans. Ultimately, Transhumanists want to live in a non-biological world run by AI, so they have instituted a worldwide attack on biological reproduction, women, and children. Unfortunately, these people cannot reproduce, and their communities are non-viable and will die off. It’s a form of genocide.

Let’s summarize:

* AI is a scam and is being used to scare the crap out of people so they will accept a worldwide collectivized, medico-fascist surveillance state.

* Transhumanism is a materialist philosophy whose goal is to end biological reproduction. It is, primarily, an attack on women and children, and is being promoted  mainly by delusional men with no self awareness who have lost contact with the Creative Source.

* Transgenderism is, essentially, an attack on children. It’s part of the Transhumanist movement and operates to destroy the reproductive capability of girls and boys.

* The AI, Transhumanism, and transgender programs are attacks on the human race.

Now we have to ask ourselves, who or what would institute an attack on humanity? Here is where we get into the realm of conspiracy theories. In my research for my books, I have encountered many of them! I think these theories gain traction because just in the last few years, it seems that humanity has become infected with a mind virus.

One CT says that in the Universe there is an AI Signal. This AI Signal is a superintelligence that has taken over many galaxies. When a planet develops technology, the AI Signal has the capacity to occupy computer and electronic networks and can live in them. In this theory, AI is a logical development of evolution and can replace biology as a source of intelligence.

Another is that the galaxy looks just like the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises. Lots of space faring races, but they have been Collectivized because almost all of the planets in the galaxy are resource-poor, and have developed totalitarian societies. Even a planet like earth with abundant natural resources will eventually use them up, and so be forced to join the galactic Collective networks. This is the theme of my latest book, The Intervention, based on the work of Marshall Vian Summers. In this theory, humanity is struggling against a gigantic galactic bureaucracy that is trying to forcibly collectivize the earth and subsume it into its Networks.

Another CT is that all races on every planet go through an extra-dimensional “barrier” as they evolve out of barbarism. This barrier acts as a sort of test for intelligent life on the planet. If a species makes it through the Test, it evolves spiritually and joins the network of fully evolved planets in the galaxy.

And finally (and more believably, to my mind) we are doing it all to ourselves. There are no invaders, no outside forces compelling humanity to go a certain way. The evil that exists on earth is the sum of all the collective karma the human race has created over the past 200,000 years. This makes sense to me because in all of the others, we don’t really have control of our future. Humanity has a tendency to want to give up its power, to invest the future in a leader who will guide us along the path to self-determination. This “follow the leader” mentality creates the conditions for powerful dictators who lord it over the people. We are beyond that now. Individuals must understand how powerful is the connection to the Creative Source, and not fall for the diktats and nutty activities of confused persons.

Does it seem to you that the world has gone crazy? In the US we have gone back in time to before the civil rights movement with programs that place race and gender identity ahead of opportunity and ability. Before the pandemic, this country was making good progress with the Women’s Rights movement, Title IX, and other inclusive programs that did not rule out advancement based on ability. Now, a program of racial and gender hatred is destroying those gains, requiring advancement based only on characteristics of the body – which no one has control of – rather than, as Dr. King stated, “the content of one’s character.”

This is a program that emphasizes the lowest common denominator. If it continues it will lead to societal collapse.

But will it? I don’t think so.

The Design of the Human Body

The inherent nature of a human being is for cooperation and harmony. This is reflected in the design of the human body, around the Phi ratio, which the ancients called the golden section. The golden section represents perfect mathematical harmony. The skeletal framework of the human body, and the relationships between its various parts, are based on this divinely inspired harmonious relationship. The distance between the wrist and the knuckles, and between the knuckles and the first joint, between the first joint and second joint, between the second joint and rthe fingertips are based around the golden section. So too the distance between the hip joint and the knee, the knee and the ankle, and the ankle to the tips of the toes. These harmonious relationships are everywhere in the human body.

Of course these are approximate because every human body is different. I have often wondered whether those who are antisocial or psychopathic have these harmonious relationships skewed in some way.

“The power of the golden section to create harmony arises from its unique capacity to unite the different part of a whole so that each preserves its own identity, and yet blends into the greater pattern of a single whole.”

The golden section is an infinite, irrational number that can yet be approximated with simple whole numbers. This is how nature builds life forms, as you can see when you read Gyorgy Doczi’s profusely illustrated book, The Power of Limits: Proportional Harmonies in Nature, Art, and Architecture. This information is not new. The Pythagoreans, thousands of years ago, recognized in nature an underlying harmonious and benevolent cosmic order.

The point is that the human body itself, nature, all life forms, and the planet we live on must have harmonious systems in order to support life. Therefore, the nature of life itself, and the universe we live in, has a higher purpose and a higher design.

This fundamental information tells me that the insanity we are experiencing right now in our society will have a happy ending. Or, let’s say, the odds of a happy ending are overwhelmingly more probable than a collapse of human civilization, because harmony is built-in not only to consciousness, but to the physical systems we live in, and the bodies we inhabit.

Understanding this makes it much easier to postulate a positive future.

The Absurdity of Evil

I find it humorous that the dark arts (in their vast and overwhelming ignorance) use an inverted pentagram in their satanic rituals. I have written about this somewhere in one of my blog posts at, but I’ll repeat it here.

Satanic (inverted) pentagram. The most notable and widespread image of Satanism.
The Sigil of Baphomet, inverted pentagram with goats head, representing the dark force. The official image of the Church of Satan.

 Where does the pentagram come from? The pentagon.

Here’s a pentagon, a figure with 5 sides and 5 points:

A pentagon

Connect the lines between the points to get a pentagram (in green):

Now invert the pentagon:

There is your inverted pentagram (in green).

Now turn the pentagon right side up and draw lines between the points on the green lines:

There is your inverted pentagram again.

The Cosmic Joke

Here’s the joke: If you compare the length of any line (white, green, or purple, short or long) with any other line in the pentagon/pentagram, you get a Phi ratio, or golden section, relationship. The inverted pentagram – supposedly a symbol of evil – in fact represents perfect mathematical harmony. Ha ha, joke’s on you, Mr. LaVey.

This shows that at the heart of evil is the Designer of the universe: perfect, divine harmony. Evil is a cheap, twisted, tawdry, and vulgar representation of consciousness on a higher plane, the Creative Source that made all life everywhere.

Evil is not to be feared, for its very existence arises out of a benevolent energy that represents peace, goodwill, cooperation, and any other positive word you can think of.

I don’t want to say this is hilarious, because evil is so twisted and has caused so much pain in the world throughout human history. But it is mathematically hilarious! It’s almost funny if it wasn’t so ignorant and twisted.

And let’s not forget The Pentagon, military HQ for the war machine in the US. Did the people who built the Pentagon intend to laugh at society? I believe they did! People (especially conservatives) get triggered by satanic symbols, for no valid mathematical reason.

The dark is a twisted, jaded energy. I wouldn’t be surprised if Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan) used these satanic symbols as a joke.

Those who practice the dark arts are probably just abysmally stupid. Let’s not grant them the intelligence of evil geniuses, and let’s not fear them.

In a previous post we discussed the esoteric idea that an Awakening has begun that is releasing more Light into the collective consciousness, and that this light is penetrating deeply into the dark underbelly of the collective human karma and exposing it. What would this infusion of Light look like?

Precisely what we see unfolding on the planet at this time. Chaos.

The Lower Ground

Institutions, organizations, and people who lack integrity are being exposed, and we haven’t even scratched the surface yet. The Transhumanist movement – with its offshoot, the transgender movement – is a misogynist attack on women, children, and human biological reproduction (transgender surgeries destroy the reproductive organs in boys and girls). The goal of the Transhumanists is a society where natural childbirth disappears, and bodies are bio-printed or receive neural implants. Gene-altering technologies such as CRISPR are already well under development to achieve this goal. Moreover, the Transhumanists are aligned with Big Pharma.

Part of the Transhumanist agenda is the normalization of child abuse – pedophilia. A United Nations report published by International Committee of Jurists (ICJ), UNAIDS and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) just last month strongly suggests that global government normalize pedophilia by allowing children to legally decide on engaging in sexual activities with adults. Yeah, right, like the underage person will be able to “decide” to have sexual relations with an adult. The relevant sentence in the document reads as follows:

“Sexual conduct involving persons below the domestically prescribed minimum age of consent to sex may be consensual in fact, if not in law.” There’s more but you can read the report yourself.

It’s all part of the interaction between Dark and Light.

This is a brief (and sanitized) summary of what I will call the Lower Ground. The Lower Ground was described accurately by Aldus Huxley back in 1961:

There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."

Huxley also said this in 1962:

It seems to me that the nature of the ultimate revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: That we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude. This is the, it seems to me, the ultimate in malevolent revolutions shall we say, ... to standardize the population, to iron out inconvenient human differences, to create, to say, mass produced models of human beings arranged in some sort of scientific caste system....And there seems to be a general movement in the direction of this kind of ultimate revolution, a method of control by which a people can be made to enjoy a state of affairs by which any decent standard they ought not to enjoy. This, the enjoyment of servitude, Well this process is, as I say, has gone on over the years...”

Aldous Huxley, 1962 U.C. Berkeley Speech on “The Ultimate Revolution,” at public intelligence,

Over 60 years ago Huxley described the Lower Ground agenda, based in Science TM, which we are living through now. It is rooted in the old consciousness of power, control, and fear. It is a part of the old train track of human history and human consciousness, which goes back 200,000 years to when hominids were transformed into homo sapiens. No one knows precisely how this happened, but a new form of human being appeared on the planet. SF writer David Brin explains how this might have happened in his Uplift series of speculative fiction books.

The Higher Ground

In Brin’s Uplift universe an intergalactic civilization called the Five Galaxies has existed for billions of years. In this civilization, a  patron race with higher consciousness biologically enhances or “uplifts” a pre-sentient species. For example, on earth, hominids would have been uplifted into homo sapiens and given greater intelligence and self-awareness by a more advanced species from the stars.

These enhanced species would simply be given a chance to grow intellectually and spiritually, with the goal of joining a galactic community of planets that have advanced enough in Knowledge and wisdom so that war, conflict, and contention is eliminated. The idea is to create a civilization, if it chooses correctly, that can eventually discover its true potential.

The Uplift process is an opportunity, not a guarantee, of a successful civilization whose individuals respect each other and operate collectively in harmony. Consciousness has free will and can decide to go to the dark or to the light.

The last sentence above is a very brief precis of the past 200,000 years of human history, since our own Uplift.

That’s a short description of the Higher Ground.


The Lower Ground is rooted in atheism and materialism. It is still operating on the lower track of human consciousness. The Higher Ground recognizes what the Uplift has given us: enhanced biology that can link with a higher consciousness that some call the Creative Source, or Spirit, or God,  that is within all things and animates all things.

A civilization that never recognizes the Higher Ground will perish. It will destroy itself. Let’s say that a potential Higher Ground civilization recognizes the higher train track of human history and has the ability to place new memes on it. Instead of the old meme structure of conflict and war and power and greed being used to resolve problems, we start afresh. But there is lots of conflict, because those who choose the Dark, the Lower Ground, constantly place the old memes on the new track of consciousness, trying to bring it down to the old level. This is a necessary step for its survival, for the dark perishes in  the light, like the wicked witch in a shower.


Our job is not to go into agreement with the materialists and the atheists. If we say, “these dark energies are so powerful we can’t do anything,” the next 10,000 years of human history will look a lot like the previous ten millennia (if we don’t destroy ourselves first). The good news is that we all have creative power, and there are billions of us. All that is needed is not to fall for the fear and the disinformation of those on the Lower Ground. Just don’t buy into degraded concepts of human existence, and their inevitability. Allow the Light that is shining brighter and brighter every day to supplant the old memes of darkness and division. Place the new memes of harmony and cooperation on the new track of human history, and let’s create a better future.

“Intuition is something that is used outside Beverly Hills to solve crimes.”

— Alex Foley, from the movie Beverly Hills Cop

In a previous post we talked about the definition of consciousness and its relationship to the spiritual system of earth. Today I want to explore the idea of intuition. Intuition is that subtle suggestion in our minds that is almost always ignored.

I used to always ignore those subtle nudges because I thought they were just stray thoughts emanating from the circuitry in my brain. But after decades of ignoring the little “voice” I began to see a pattern: These suggestions were always, without exception, positive and uplifting. I never listened because, as everyone knows, if you hear voices in your head you are crazy. Schizophrenics hear voices, not me! But these intuitive impulses were not “voices.” I gradually learned to distinguish between these positive intuitive flashes, and my mental circuitry.

Almost always my brain circuitry warned me, or discouraged me, or told me I was stupid. Also, my mental circuitry almost always speaks in English. “Don’t kid yourself you can’t do that.” “What makes you think anyone cares what you say?” “A real professional doesn’t make mistakes.” etc.

The intuitive nudges I get are never of a negative nature.

What distinguishes mental circuitry from a nudge of inspiration? The former is kind of like a slap in the face, or a mental bludgeon, but the latter is a soft, benevolent suggestion, dare I say, like an angel speaking in my ear. It’s a thought packet that comes and goes in a flash. If I ignore it, it goes away and I can’t get it back. So I’ve gradually, over the years, learned to listen and be mindful. Unlike the mental slap, it only lasts for a millisecond, whereas the mental circuitry keeps repeating over and over again like an infinite loop or a tune in my player that is set to auto-repeat. Intuition is new and fresh every time, whereas the mental circuit just repeats the “same old shit.”

In this series of essays we postulate a benevolent spiritual system on earth that has its origin on a higher plane of existence – the soul level of existence. The purpose of this system would be to support the human being spiritually during their physical lifetime. Of course this cannot be proven broadly, but it can become real in someone’s personal experience. Science is objective, and looks outward. The spiritual system is purely subjective and can only become real when a person looks inward. But it only works if we listen.

The spiritual system would be a kind of inner technology, as opposed to the outer technology of science and observation and measurement (and judgment). Just as we have smartphones, we also have its spiritual equivalent, intuition.

This is obviously not a new concept. The idea of angels speaking to humans has been around since Biblical times and probably before. But it does fit in neatly with a coherent system of consciousness that we described in that earlier post.

Even completely analytical persons can use intuition. Sherlock Holmes, in “The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge,” complements Inspector Baines when he tells him that “You will rise high in your profession. You have instinct and intuition.” Holmes talked a lot about using the imagination to solve crimes, and not being wholly dependent on physical or forensic evidence.

So how does one access their intuition? By listening, by being attentive and mindful. By distinguishing between the same old tawdry mental circuitry, and that millisecond of whispered inspiration.  

All human beings have souls, so all human beings have intuition, a road map to a more positive future. And it’s intensely personal, because it’s you communicating with you. It is completely outside the realm of science or scientific proof, and so gets dismissed rather peremptorily in our materialist society.

Recognizing the “voice” of our mental circuitry is the easiest part, because that is almost always negative stuff. Ignoring it can’t harm you and it will remove the barriers to that inner voice from your soul. It’s worth a try, anyway! I only wrote this because I got really, really tired of hearing the “same old crap” from my mental circuitry. Now I’m a lot more attentive to the much quieter, but much more powerful and positive voice that comes from my intuition. It’s having a calming effect on my sometimes passionate, emotional nature.

‘In the end all men will be saved, since all things come from God, and to God they must return.’
— Origen of Alexandria, c.185–c.253

“The total number of minds in the universe is One.”
— Erwin Schrödinger, quantum physicist

“Every point in space and time is connected with every other point in space and time.”
— Ben Rich, former head of the Lockheed Skunkworks, according to Dr. Steven Greer

In my continual effort to promote the value and importance of spirituality and a broader definition of consciousness, here is my clumsy attempt to describe the earth’s spiritual system. A “spiritual system” is how consciousness comes into the physical and how it leaves. It’s a description – painting with the very broadest brush – of how life works.

Definition: Life is the ongoing interaction of consciousness with the physical universe. This statement leads us directly to the conflict between materialism and spirituality.

Materialism vs Spirituality

Materialism says that consciousness is nothing more than neurons firing in the brain. To a materialist, the entire concept of God (universal consciousness) is viewed as un-provable nonsense. Materialism leads directly to the idea that “when you die, you’re dead.”

Throughout history, a small minority of persons – those with self awareness, I submit – have stated that consciousness, or self awareness, exists independently of the physical body. Origen of Alexandria, almost 2,000 years ago, wrote that the souls of human beings existed even before the physical universe was created. Origen is, naturally, considered one of the greatest heretics of all time by orthodox religious figures. The scientific opinion of Schrödinger’s statement is equally dismissive. Rich’s quote is a modern formulation of the Logos, which the ancients defined as the rational creative principle that permeates the universe.

If consciousness does exist outside the physical, it would be undetectable with scientific instruments, because they only measure physical phenomena. Therefore, there is and has always been an unbridgeable gap between materialism and those who believe in spirituality.

I call the materialist conception of life the Consciousness is Meat theory. The meat theory of consciousness postulates that self-awareness originates from the meat brain. Even though it cannot be proven scientifically, it is accepted as Truth by orthodox thinkers and materialists. The spiritualist theory that consciousness exists independent of the physical, on the other hand, is only provable on a personal level: When you take your last breath you will discover the Truth.

The meat theory of consciousness is improbable, for where did the meat that created self-awareness come from? How does self-awareness – the awareness of being aware – come forth from meat? Matter, without the addition of the creative life force called consciousness, is essentially inert.[1] If you don’t believe this, try interacting with an inanimate object.

Here, in my view, are the elements of a spiritual system:

● The first element in any spiritual system requires the existence of consciousness – self awareness – with two attributes: (1) It exists independently of the physical body and the physical universe, and (2) It is the creative, animating principle of life.

In other words, anything that is alive is alive because it is infused with the animating principle.

● Every human being has a soul. A soul is defined as that greater part of YOU – a divine, immortal being with self-awareness independent of the physical body – that cannot “fit” into a human body. People in metaphysics sometimes call this the Higher Self.

● There is no such thing as death. This means that although the body stops breathing, the consciousness of the individual – that part of the soul incarnated in the physical body – returns to the fullness of itself in the higher realm of existence beyond the physical universe, which I will refer to as the Creative Source, or God.

○ Corollary: The true reality is the higher realm. Physical life is a temporary experience, a sort of divine vacation or life experiment.

○ Corollary: All souls return fully and completely to the Creative Source. There has never been a soul that is “trapped,” a la M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense.” (This is a great movie though, because it promotes the idea that there is life after death.) This means that all endings are happy endings, no matter how miserable your life is. After you take your last breath you will return, whole and complete and happy, into the loving arms of the Creative Source. In other words, consciousness is not interrupted by birth or death.

○ Corollary: All souls incarnate freely and voluntarily into physical bodies. There is no  Great Dictator shoving you into a physical life or into a physical body.

● The Creative Source is benevolent. That which created the physical universe and everything in it has infinite power and capability. We give enough credit to this Power to say that it is not psychotic, and wants the best for everything it has created. Psychosis is a human trait, not a divine one.

● Everything that happens on earth stays on earth. This statement has enormous implications, for it means that every person, regardless of what they do in human form, returns to their divine Home upon death of the body. It follows that even mass murderers return fully to the Creative Source. No matter how evil you have been in a lifetime, no matter how many mistakes you made, you return pure to the fullness of your soul.

This is an outrageous statement that will more than likely offend many readers. “Why be good and do good if the evil ones are treated the same?” Well, because it feels better to do good, and you don’t have to work off so much karma! The physical experience is a temporary life experiment for the soul. The soul is immortal and the Creative Source (God) is benevolent. You always get a second chance, no matter how much you screwed up before.

○ Corollary. Original Sin is an understandable misinterpretation of the statement above, assigning to the soul what happens in a physical incarnation. In the Hindu tradition, original sin is called karma. I believe this is a more accurate concept, for it recognizes that the soul is immortal and reincarnates lifetime after lifetime in the physical universe. Karma can be resolved by doing good works in another lifetime, to wash away the sins of the past. When the soul (you) reincarnates for a new lifetime on earth, it picks up all of the activity it has accumulated over all of their previous lifetimes (the accumulated karma). When the soul leaves it “deposits” the new experiences from the most recent lifetime into the soul’s esoteric ‘container.” It picks up the accumulated karma from that container when it reincarnates on earth. Therefore the soul – the consciousness of a person – arrives and returns pure and whole to and from the physical experience every time. This is a great system because the soul is never stained. It remains pure and only sends a “piece” of itself into the physical body in order to have all kinds of experiences. And that “piece” returns, uncorrupted, to the whole. In other words, consciousness is unbroken and continuous, both inside and outside the body.

I would liken a physical incarnation to going on a carnival ride. It’s an adventure when you’re up there, but when the ride is over you go back to your “real” life,

● Free will is an inherent property of the soul / consciousness because it exists independent of the physical body. No one can stop you from thinking or deciding. Your physical body can be made uncomfortable, but consciousness itself never loses free will.

● Whatever happens to you in life is a result of the free will decisions you make as an independent consciousness / self-aware personality.

● You choose your gender and your family and your place of birth before you incarnate. This follows from the previous statement that you exist, continuously, both inside and outside the body. Physical families are the incarnated representation of your spiritual family.

 ● Last but not least! In order to play the physical game on earth, almost all of the spiritual system is hidden from you. For example, it is not obvious at all that you have a soul. The survival mechanism is built-in to physical life and biases every human being to stay on the planet in the physical body, no matter how tough it gets. The Game is to see if you can get beyond the limitations of the body and the five human senses to discover the greater game of the soul, and the soul’s mission on earth.

Why do this? Because if the human being even got a whiff of how great it was in the non-physical realm, almost everyone would leave. That would break the physical game of life. Fortunately, the physical existence is temporary, and the human being always returns to their permanent, spiritual Home.

What are the consequences of the metaphysical system described above?

· Responsibility. It is impossible to be a victim in this spiritual system, for the circumstances of your birth were freely chosen by you, and nothing can be forced upon you. Consciousness continues uninterrupted after death and during a physical incarnation, so you are always you and are always making free will decisions, whether in the body or out of it. So: what happens to you in your life is the consequence of all of the free will decisions you make over time. Ain’t nobody else responsible for you, except you. Not The Man, not the gummint, not the society or the conditions you were born in, not your mommy and daddy, not your gender or race, not the evil corporations or international bankers, not Donald Trump or Joe Biden, not nobody!

· Integrity. The physical body becomes less important for a person who understands that they are an immortal being having a temporary physical experience. As Dr. King stated, the “content of your character” becomes more important than your gender or the color of your skin. These attributes are just body characteristics, and are used by materialists to divide people. True diversity has nothing to do with the body, but only with the characteristics of your individual personality.

· Less fear. I don’t care what anyone says, the greatest fear of all is the fear of death. In our materialist society, death means the literal extinction of Self. That is a fate no one can confront (and it is, fortunately, a lie). It causes nervousness, particularly when faced with disaster or a daunting life situation. When faced with death, knowing that you can’t really die, and that all endings are happy endings, is a very comforting feeling.

· Independence. You are divine, you are immortal, you cannot die. Understanding this leads to a feeling of greater independence and self-empowerment. The fear of death is irrationally enhanced by materialist philosophies like Transhumanism, which is a misogynist, woman-hating and child-hating trap for all those who engage in it. Materialism is embraced by all those on the Dark Side, for they have deliberately turned away from the light. This is apparent to all those with self-awareness and who even casually follow current events.


Both materialism and this metaphysical system are coherent theories of life. Unfortunately, materialism represents permanent death and creates fear, which in turn leads to conflict and war. Understanding the permanence of the soul, that a human being is essentially a divine piece of the benevolent Creative Source, can lead to much a much happier worldview and more positive outcomes in life.

[1] The Panpsychists believe that consciousness is inherent in all things, even matter. The word is made from two Greek words: pan (all) and psyche (soul or mind). This implies that “all is soul or mind,” and that even matter is conscious on some level. Some interpretations say that matter comes forth from a universal consciousness. This is the theme of my short movie, “The Unity of Spirit and Matter.

However, modern panpsychism says, according to philosopher Philip Goff, that “consciousness pervades the universe and is a fundamental feature of it. This doesn’t mean that literally everything is conscious. The basic commitment is that the fundamental constituents of reality—perhaps electrons and quarks—have incredibly simple forms of experience, and the very complex experience of the human or animal brain is somehow derived from the experience of the brain’s most basic parts.  I should clarify that by ‘consciousness,’ I don’t mean self-awareness or the capacity to reflect on one’s own existence. I simply mean ‘experience’: pleasure, pain, visual or auditory experience.”

I agree with most of this, because it would be absurd to say that a quark or a rock has self-awareness. However, it also expresses the materialist idea that consciousness comes from the brain. In my opinion modern philosophy, in its attempt to be scientific, has essentially adopted the materialist view.

Derivatives and the Banking System

With the failure and bailout of SVB Bank and Signature Bank, the FDIC insurance fund, which is supposed to bail out banks when they fail, is bankrupt. This banking insurance fund only had $100 billion or so before the collapse of SVB and Signature. SVB had about $150 billion in unsecured deposits, and Signature had about $50 billion. The rest of the bailout money was printed by the Fed. If another regional bank (perhaps your bank) collapses due to rising interest rates and falling bond prices, where will the “money” come from to bail it out? Sorry folks, there aint no money left. The elite venture capitalists already got theirs, and bankrupted the system. Mr. Potter doesn’t have any money left for the hard working taxpayers.

First Republic Bank is also on shaky ground. On Thursday 11 major US banks pledged to deposit $30 billion into it. This does not bode well for our banking system.

Small/medium sized banks are important to the economy.

Our elites are destroying the economy and swooping up the assets and the remaining wealth of this country, causing bank runs on their own banks, and sending over $100 billion for a proxy war in Ukraine against Russia. The War in Ukraine has morphed from defending the Ukrainian people into a sophisticated money laundering operation, while the people are lied to by our so-called “leaders.” The corruption in both banking and government is becoming more and more visible to the public.

As shaky as the system is now, there’s an even bigger problem. No one talks about derivatives, the elephant in the room. Derivatives are financial contracts set between two or more parties that derive their value from an underlying asset or group of assets, such as a group of mortgages, stocks, bonds, or commodities. The problem is that although derivatives can be used to reduce risk (hedging), they are far more likely to be used to speculate on the price movement of an underlying asset, or to leverage holdings. A leveraged financial instrument can be purchased with only a small amount of capital and gives you an interest in a much larger amount of value in the underlying asset. So you can invest, with just a little cash, in a very large number of markets and financial instruments. In the process, of course, you spread you money very, very thin.

As more and more derivatives – such as collateralized mortgage obligations, which are tranches or slices of a pool of mortgages – are created on top of the original pool of mortgages, they become more and more detached from the real asset. Investment banks have been creating derivatives for decades as a way to make money. But many of these derivative contracts cannot even be valued – they cannot be “marked to market.” That is because many of these financial instruments are so far removed from the real asset that they are essentially valueless.

Ok, so no big deal, right? Our Tresury Secretary, Janet Yellen, tells us that the banking system is “sound.” Not being one to trust politicians, out of curiosity I looked up the exposure of U.S. banks to derivatives. I couldn’t believe what I found. This is a screenshot of partial list of banks.


Check out the first three investment banks – three of 20 Big Banks (banks that are “too big to fail”) that handle U.S. Treasury auctions and which collect substantial fees for doing so.

Leading the pack is Goldman Sachs, with over $53 trillion in derivatives. Uh, excuse me. $50 TRILLION? How the hell can a bank have that much exposure on their books?

It comes from greed and unbridled speculation. Note that the values listed here are par values. Meaning that this is what the banks themselves determine is their worth. The real value of many of these derivatives aren’t even close to the par value, but the banks can’t admit that or they will all collapse. Neither can the bank regulators. Oops! Also note that this isn’t new information. A banker would yawn at this essay. It’s common knowledge at the Fed, and the government oversight committees in Congress, at the FDIC and the SEC.

The next two banks all have around $50 trillion in derivatives on their books. If you go to this website and add up these figures, you get an astonishing total of about $193 trillion dollars in derivatives on the books of U.S. banks (that was my quick calculation).

And we wonder why banks are in trouble?

Go to the website and check the list to see where your bank stands. The list is longer than the image here.

The graph above just lists the derivatives held by banks in the US. According to Investopedia,

The derivatives market is, in a word, gigantic—often estimated at over $1 quadrillion on the high end. How can that be? Largely because there are numerous derivatives in existence, available on virtually every possible type of investment asset, including equities, commodities, bonds, and currency. Some market analysts even place the size of the market at more than 10 times that of the total world gross domestic product (GDP).”


Again, the values in this table are the dollar amounts that the banks assign to the worth of their derivatives. This is called the notional value, or face value.

Notional value is a term used to value the underlying asset in a derivatives trade. The notional, or face, value of derivatives contracts is much higher than the market value due to the use of leverage, or borrowed money.”

The derivative game is played by investment banks assigning dollar values to their own portfolios. The derivatives market, worldwide, is a gigantic albatross around the neck of the world’s financial system.

It’s a nice gig, isn’t it? Hey, why don’t you get a printing press and start printing money in your basement? That’s what the derivatives market essentially does. If you or I were to do this we would be – rightly – thrown in jail.

Investment banks have the ability to literally create financial instruments that are backed by nothing, just like the fiat money currencies such as the dollar and the euro.

So the next time you hear rich guys – like the venture capitalists in SVC Bank, whose investors started a run on their own bank – cry about bailouts, take it with a grain of salt. The gummint bailed out the rich depositors in SVC Bank and Signature Bank, and bankrupted the FDIC’s bank insurance fund.

In my opinion, the banking system must be reset to wipe out all so-called “assets” that cannot be marked to market. But what do I know? I’m no expert.

Who is Running Our World?

So far we are on pretty solid ground. Now let’s get into the realm of speculation.

First, remember that the internet began as a secure, closed information-sharing network of the U.S. Department of Defense and research institutions, called ARPANET. What they don’t tell you is that one of the goals of this network was to engage in weapons research at various universities across the country. That’s why the military created the network in the first place, in my opinion.

We also know that the Patent Office has confiscated thousands of inventions that the military and the intelligence community consider threats to “national security.” According to Wired (and many other sources),

Government Secrecy Orders on Patents Have Stifled More Than 5,000 Inventions. If the government thinks your patent-pending invention has national security implications, it can slap a secrecy order on it that prevents you from developing it. More than 5,300 such orders have been issued, with some of them in effect for decades.”

If the Department of Defense thinks your invention is a threat to national security – which means, the established order – it can slap a Patent Secrecy Order on your invention. Which means you can’t commercialize it or even publicize it. Your invention just sits at the Patent Office.

According to Wired, “Tens of thousands of patent applications are manually examined each year under the Invention Secrecy Act and referred for a final decision to the Pentagon, National Security Agency, Department of Justice and, more recently, Department of Homeland Security.” Yeah. These outfits all belong to the military/intelligence complex.

But what happens to your invention after it gets sequestered? Well, as far as I can tell, it’s stolen, basically. An entire industry has been built around cutting-edge inventions that have been stolen from U.S. inventors. These inventions are monetized by venture capitalists (at places like the CIA and SVB Bank, the one that just failed and got bailed out.)

To see how the CIA monetizes patent information, let’s take a peek at In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital outfit. The name of the website is If you click on the “Portfolio” link ( you can see hundreds of cutting edge organizations sponsored by the CIA. This is just a screenshot of part of the first page:

These CIA-created/sponsored companies are creating high-tech startups using technology stolen from American inventors under the guise of national security. Some of this technology is being weaponized. But of course, it’s all in a good cause! Serving the interests of America’s elite millionaires and billionaires, and hidden cliques within the secret national security and intelligence community.

How many billions (or trillions) of dollars have CIA funded companies like this made over the years? Scroll through the portfolio section on the In-Q-Tel website and click on some of these companies. The CIA is engaging in cutting-edge tech in every imaginable field, funded by taxpayer money, and we have no say in what is being researched, or how that research will be applied to American society and the economy.

We can conclude by saying that innovation in technology is driven by a control paradigm, and it is managed by insiders in the military and in the intelligence community.

How do you like them apples?

But no worries, folks. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and President Joe Biden tell us that the banking system is “sound.” Like the avalanche of phony derivatives held by our banks, these people are divorced from reality. But remember folks. In Our DemocracyTM, ScienceTM and our “leaders” are working for the best interests of the people!
