Evil …

The logic of “evil” is odd. Evil requires, for meaning at the conceptual level, Good. Each is married to the “other”. The next level of odd, has to do with the truth, which is that not only are Good&Evil married, that marriage is an embodied reflection of aspects of the Divine Mystery Itself.

In my book “The Art of God: an actual theory of Everything”, I write there, as part of the modern conception of God, the idea that observable reality reveals God is distributed, with the same virtues we notice in distributed computing. Keep in mind that distributed computing is useful both to solve certain mathematical/scientific questions requiring a lot of processing power, and it is also a fertile field for “bots” running/dancing to the selfish songs born in black-hat hacking.

If we are a sensible person, we also see how in life individuals make decisions, which decisions effect other folks as well. These “choices” (whether between good&evil, or some other duality) effect the world. We author the choice, and as an aspect of that it is the distributed god&devilwithin us, that chooses.

A sane understanding of Goethean science would cause folk to realize that spirit is everywhere right next to matter. Another married duality. Angels&demons. Men&women.

If we look within, at our feelings, that the properly chastised L. Ron Hubbard misnamed “the reactive mind”, we find another married duality, generally labeled: sympathy&antipathy. Here – in these feelings – is a tendency to move toward what we like, and away from what we do not like. This reactive feeling life, with its dual nature, has deep roots. In a certain Way, these feelings are “intelligence”, even if later we cannot articulate “reasons” for why we did what we did.

Rudolf Steiner described his view of the macrocosmic reality as containing another duality, which he named: Lucifer&Ahriman. The logos (logical) nature of such married dualities is that they are also united, and always a whole. There is no meaning if they are conceived as separate. Steiner taught that Christ was in between these two, and that Life was about our learning how to personally maintain the right relationship among polar conditions – we are the In Between that balances.

The use of the word Christ involves us with a more pressing problem, as regards the religious history of the world. To resolve this means first off to see the rise of the three patriarchal monotheisms as a reflection in the “earth” sphere of macrocosmic qualities – the Divine Mystery is not just Christ, but Allah and Jehovah simultaneously. All duality is in reality a trinity.

There is a social/spiritual set of observations called “Theory U”. It finds that if there is a descent, then there is also an ascent, again a duality. In the case of the Hebrews – who guided the spiritual descent into matter – they became people of the law. Very strict rules, which according to Steiner made possible the creation of a quite definite strain of genetic inheritance. Some work&order was necessary for there to be an avatar body, in which a God might be able to live for a time.

Rules and obedience. The Hebraic Divinity appears in multiple ways, including phenomena like burning bushes, pillars of cloud, and seas that obey the prayers of wizards. The old Testament is filled with dreamers dreaming, and poet-kings singing. Remnants of the goddess religions being slowly subsumed, as the three anti-feminine patriarchal monotheism began the work of imprinting themselves on the world.

Descent needed to followed by ascent. The earth-impression of the Divine Mystery is complex, and while on the one hand both the Hebrew – and already being born Christian religions – there also needed to be a balancing upward movement. Earth and Heaven being woven together, with the last “people of the book” – Islam, being deeply connected to the Mother, to the social heart – the family, and to the Idea of Surrender. We forget history’s song, when we judge Islam and do not recognize that during Europe’s dark age, Islam flowered with genius everywhere.

All three are being destroyed from within, through the advocates of my way or the highway, a common human foible that insures that social forms evolve. Another repetition of the primary marriage of polar states of consciousness.

Part of the current world situation is made especially acute, due to the fact that we feel we are a separate self, over here, while there is an outside/experienced world that is not us. Another duality, that is fundamentally a trinity, which totality itself is a unity, a marriage not in name only. No wonder Christ urges us to cleave to each other, and become again as little children.

Every human being is their own Path. Be yourself; and, I hope the above meditation on “Evil …” has been useful.

for a much longer contemplation: “The Mystery of Evil in the Light of the Sermon on the Mount”

Faerie Tales

Faerie Tales

According to Tiger-Saucy, the last Faerie teacher of shamans, even in the way back long ago when before, the Weeping of the Mother could be heard. Yet never so much experienced as is revealed in the dream-songs of the Age of the Fall of Western Civilization, where that Trial always lurked at the leading edges of the ever present Now.

Among the Fae, there was a hymn, to She Who has the Whole World in His Hands. It was a song of joy, as the Goddess and Her Court would be able to leave their voluntary waiting in the Mysts … become once more known – directly helping – the lost-in-matter Children. The fall into matter had reached its nadir when the three patriarchal monotheisms were offered, although the pending of confusion-destiny borne in the coming time of the intellect on fire, haunted the Sacrifice at the center.

The knowing of the Goddesses was fading already when He died on the Cross of matter. And with that loss to the song-of-all-that-is, the Children also lost the capacity to see the world as always Whole, never parts.

The first song, from the Hebrews, was a prayer to God-the-Father’s Law. The second song was a prayer to the Son’s ending of the descent into matter. The turning point of time the wizard Rudolf Steiner had called this gesture from endless and unbound Love. The third song – in the Koran – had its own terrible destiny as the act of Surrender was misused by the traditions of male scholars, as had already been done to knowledge of the Law, and later would happen to knowledge of Love .

Still, … Law followed by Love leading to Surrender. Not three religions, One. Matter met and mastered, to eventually be left behind. The last song belonging to the Feminine Mysteries, yet still hidden, and not to be revealed until the Great Trial awoke a hunger to remember Her, in order tame the wild aspects of the intellect unmastered.

This story is introduced in the book of Thoth, via the symbol of the Feminine, gently holding the face of a lion, blessing the nature of holy animality with freedom to become, and to eventually to receive the gift of speech, which is what that kingdom deserved for all their sacrifices.

The Children’s own untamed animality would lead to the moment which the Sage of the Desert had spoken of – just prior to the Incarnation – as bringing with It the baptism of all in fire and holy breath. The Divine Mystery does not lightly sweep the board clean of the Children’s messes, but still, like any good Mother She knows the deeper secrets, such as: That in such moments of outrageous chaos, everyone there volunteered.

The excesses of the intellect must run their course. Their time comes of necessity. Would that at least some of the Children would see this Age as filled with Crafts and Arts as only the Holy Mother could provide, even tho’ not fully remembered.

Many of the Children would forget the Mystery, but the Mystery never forgets Them.

Still the Son re-emerged from the prison of ignorance into which the male scholars had cast Him, and made Himself available to the intellect directly. Personally. Only via remarkable intimacy can He baptize the Children in Fire and Holy Breath.

Still, human folly must run its course. The Children must be free to color outside the lines as they wish. Fate and Fortune must be active in all the little dramas.

Here is a great secret, obvious once stated: Everyone is the right person, in the right place, at the right time. Everyone gets to be here for this Rite, that some will call the pandemic-Pandemonium.

The Artist of Karma, aided by the Mother, dances destruction one day at a time. Atlantis did not fall all at once, but involved a metamorphosis on a scale only the Mystery could imagine and inspire. For each biography is holy art, and such art is to be accomplished with skills most humans fail to appreciate.

The enchantment of the intellect alone, as thought, is to be the principle gift to the Children. Intellect alone – aka: thought’s weakness – is to be redeemed by Magic. Not the imaginary magic of the novelist, but the personal magic of one day at a time. The Labyrinth of the Groundhog Day, ruled by the personal inward trials via the Maze of the Spirit.

Humans give something of the never-before-yet into the Creation. The tenth hierarchy completes a Spiraled Circle, the snake eating its tail, as the law of as above, so below, and as below, so above – resolves itself into wholeness.

Some reading this poem may have forgotten that the New Age has already Dawned, and that among many the Goddess and Her Court were remembered, and old religious practices re-investigated. Still there was a riddle of a puzzle made of words in a science that believes there is only matter, and spirit a fantasy.

That arid intellectual (science without art and religion) view had to crash and burn on such a scale that the whole world would watch this happen and many would be able to participate in this grand metamorphosis. After all, almost all minds have become infected with the matter only tale, and so each needed an individual Way to awake to this, and by their own efforts of will, evolve the matter-only science, into a science where spirit was known just as empirically as matter was known.

The “U” shaped descent into matter via Law (the Father), and the turn for reunification via Love (the Son), would blossom in Surrender (the Mother)

The intellect on its own, for example, tends to abstract cause and effect thinking. When that style of thinking is applied to modern social events, the tendency is to (as with matter-only science) imagine that the nature of the pandemic-Pandemonium involves something untoward going on behind the scenes … this untamed intellect generates conspiracy theories of causality, not noticing the first law all shamans must accept:

If something exists, its existence has been approved from the Sun/Son’s starry heights, to the darkest deeps of the Mother. She is “in” everything, including the wild and chaotic.

The living social life of the Children requires dying and becoming. Have to get rid of the no longer necessary intellect-only view of existence, before we can imagine a new story, one where Faerie and Fae are remembered, and the Mother is honored once more.

In a certain sense (way of seeing, of which there are many) the pandemic is a creature of human darkness. Certain tendencies of thought as regards health and illness, being based on a matter-only world view, have to fail.

The Children need real events in which to wake up those faculties that are not bound by the intellect’s present dominance. The free imagination – which is magical and mystical – is the means.

The Mother is visible, in the social, when we observe a wave of change moving through large groups of people. The changes induce chaos, part of Her forte, and in the Aftermath the human being – in each individual biography – has new choice potentials. These possibilities are not available when the social order is in a steady state.

We each are the darkness of the tunnel of the descent into matter, and the light at the end of it.

Still, She Weeps. Because in those of us riding the tsunami of of future history there will be great pain. For we too, are of the Mother. We care. We hope. We wish. Sometimes we crash about the kitchen throwing things so powerful is our rage at the endless inhumanity surrounding us.

We can’t be aware of our own pain and confusion, without noticing this trial is everywhere, in everyone. Oh, we might take a moment and blame others, and certainly within our own intellects

we will find debris needing healing. All the same, we know personally that other places than where we live are also in dire need.

If we surrender to this kind of empathy-feeling – wanting to be born – that will enable us to draw nearer to Her and Her Court. They feel all that all feel. Nor is our personal suffering insignificant. For They act out of Eternity, bending space and time to Their Wills.

Into the pandemic-Pandemonium ride the Four Horseman, with Her at the reigns. She is also there at each Death. Consider the most awful aspect being reported, which is a disease process that leads to suffocation, if we are not helped to breathe. Her Son suffocated on the cross of materialism, a hard path to cross, that threshold into the true life.

Should we be surprised then at the massive trials on the minds and hearts, of those who must administer what comfort there can be. Not just the impossible tasks, or even the constant sadness at loss, … the harsh reality is that even the comforters must bear their portion of the cross of scientific materialism.

The intellectual belief that the human being is an accidental and random event in an uncaring Cosmos is itself a trial – a weight of untruth.

Many struggle. Many care. Many feel hopeless. Many want to set the whole damn world on fire. In all these “many” there is also a portion of Her and Him. All those “feelings” that materialism can’t measure, … those are the heart of the Rite of the Pandemonium.

Tiger-Saucy sez: You are not alone. Find your tribe. Share the pain and work. And each day find time to dance and sing and be grateful. She does have the Whole World in His Hands.




the Joke yOlk – Yoke is on us

Joke: a thing that someone says to cause amusement or laughter, especially a story with a funny punchline.

yOlk: the yellow internal part of a bird’s egg, which is surrounded by the white, is rich in protein and fat, and nourishes the developing embryo.

Yoke: a wooden crosspiece that is fastened over the necks of two animals and attached to the plow or cart that they are to pull.

I have a twin cousin, and her name is Joy. When my body brother was born, it was on the 23rd of December, 1940. Our maternal grandmother Edith lived in rural Montana, and in early January she went to the mail box to find two letters. One was from our mother Dorothy – Edith’s daughter, and the other from Virginia, wife of Dorothy’s brother, and therefore Edith’s daughter-in-law.

Each letter announced the birth of a child, on the same day, about two hours apart in time, and a thousand miles away in space. Joey and Joy. 31 years later Joey left our shared bodies, and I walked in. By that time most folk knew him as Joel, although once in a while, on my own returns to the town of our birth, some relative would call me Joey.

That felt odd, and yet warmed me. It was good to be reminded of my body brother. We all know of folk, who upon receiving a heart transplant, begin to exhibit behaviors of the former owner of the heart. Now expand that to the totality of the physical, astral, and ethereal bodies, … they too remember their former occupant, although my ego over the years has altered much.

It was Joey who took LSD the week before graduating from Law School. It was he who lived through the assassination of JFK, and the beginning appearances of: Hugh Hefner, who opened a great door for sexuality, albeit very self-centered; Elvis Presley, who danced when he sang, changing the whole nature of social dancing among the young; and Martin Luther King awakening a nation to a great ongoing crime. These were not so much leaders, as fore-runners of the huge emerging changes in the social life of humanity, that we came to call the “60’s”, a worldwide Dionysian celebration [relating to the sensual, spontaneous, and emotional aspects of human nature.]

Joy became an evangelical Christian, and a business woman. I became a serious esoteric Christian, and a mostly starving writer. We hardly ever talk.

Matthew 11: 28-30: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Over in that portion of Faerie, where folk get lost in time to their passions, there is a special arena devoted to gambling. Those there watch us, and place bets upon which directions we will choose. Our present time is drawing to this festival many from other aspects of Faerie, both human and Fae, because the history of this World has never before had so many spirits incarnated at the same time, celebrating this spiritual Rite of Passage we call the COVID-19 pandemic-Pandemonium.

Most of the people of our time have at least heard of the Idea of Karma and Reincarnation. If this is true, then we are immortal beings, having a mortal life, in order to play for a time in the fields of the lord.

Right now many face their fear of death, perhaps thinking karma and reincarnation might be true, yet not embracing this as a dependable fact of existence. If you knew death was a transformation to a different state, rather than an end, how would you behave differently?

If this immortal state is true, something more complicated is happening. Consider the following factoid sequence: In the most ancient Goddess religions, it was known that the human being was an immortal spirit having lives occasionally in matter. In fact, the words for spirit – up to the 8th Century – were generally understood to mean just that.

In the cultural West, this view of the essence of the human being became officially “disappeared”. The Roman Church took this passage from the Gospels: Matthew 22:36-40, in answer to the question:

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

… and changed the word “spirit” to the word “soul”. By fiat the Roman Church declared that the human being did not have spirit – which was immortal, and reincarnated – while soul, which was meant to mean that this “soul” only had one life, not many. Sin in this life, and the damage to the soul is permanent, a wound only the divine mystery can forgive (or the Church’s elected priests).

Perhaps a confusion with a justified purpose, born in the Wise-Intelligence of the Mystery.

Scientific materialism agrees that we only have one life, and that based upon the gods of chaos, random, and chance, not on living Art&Mystery.

As we in America enter the next Wave (according to the official government and corporate approved Narrative), social order is being changed by acts which seek too much top down order, and whose principle mode of operation is: a) be afraid; b) demand all folk act so as to give in to your fears; and c) have no faith or hope. Civil liberties be damned.

While this assertion of power unfolds, many find themselves without jobs, without income, and unable to keep food on the table, a roof over our families heads, and a working vehicle for when we can leave this panic-generated house arrest.

Is the fear reasonable?

No. The Narrative is sourced in the hungers of the wealthy&powerful, who lie without conscience, and take far more than any “human” being needs for their own enjoyment.

Fight or flight? Rebel, disobey, and ignore; or run and Hyde under your bed? Millions will have needs. Government and corporations will not take care of them, so in the beginning, the middle, and the end of the pandemic-Pandemonium, what will you contribute?

Yes, millions are ill. This flu is massive and everywhere. Flu of this kind is a detoxification process. Illness designed to rid the body of poisons in the air, the water, the food, and the medicine.

Most folk will not die. Many folk will be found, who do not show evidence of the alien chest buster egg in their bodies. Many will be found who have had contact with the horrible “germ”, but never will have symptoms. Of those that do have symptoms, only a portion of those will die.

If we do not disobey and rebel, the Titans of Industry will poison/vaccinate us all, by force if they can.

Will we let them? Will we claim our human right to be, and dethrone the corporate mobsters?

All you have a right to is your own life. How will you spend that life?

the Tsunami of Future History

One of the peculiarities of our age is the frequency with which folks make long range predictions, that are always based on false premises. These false premises assume a steady state progression into the future. They assume properties of regularity where there are none.

This is especially true of the presently emerging Tsunami of Future History. We just got a foretaste of this dying into a new becoming of Western Civilization, and it should be a good hint that the near future (next couple of centuries) will be dominated by the predictable unpredictable.

The present pandemonium is a wave of chaos meant to put the brakes on our current environmental rush toward oblivion. It is meant to give ordinary people time to consider their circumstances and how much longer they are willing to tolerate domination. AND, how much they need each other.

The end of the Roman Empire is just a weak preview of what is coming for us. Chaos is opportunity. The human “I” is the right person, in the right place, at the right time. The individual biography is more important to the Mystery than any religion, science, or human work of art.

Chaotic times include events that prey on the weakness of dead or dying social institutions. Their fundamental rigidity causes them to break under duress. This breakage we need, because we need to renew the fundamental social dynamics from the ground up, instead of from the top down.

Students of Rudolf Steiner may recall that he characterized the time of Egypt, and such, as based upon top-down management of the social order out of the Mystery Centers. He even suggested there would be an interesting inversion of the old top-down order in the time of the 5th epoch – our time.

The Mystery, now living in the individual human being, is via the coming chaos to be freed as much as possible from outer authority, and more enabled to exercise their self-determined autonomous authority.

Some sense of this impending doom is known to those who want/need to be on top and give orders. Many learn to read the handwriting on the wall. . The powerful lose if we arise. Old families, old money, ancient and modern ties of blood, a kind of weight of traditional rule of societies, tribes, transferred to corporations, and even the upper levels of religious, scientific, or artistic wealth and authority.

For example, the Roman Church needs to fall in order to free the laity and the religious to build up from the bottom the next phase of the Catholic (universal&Christian) Religion

Many of those holders of power will cling to it, and do violence to hold on to it. They tend to come from religious traditions that used to talk of divine judgement, but in the age of scientific materialism their educations have given them a false sense that karma and/or divine judgment do not truly exist.

The Goddesses are back. They never really left, so much as They gave modern mankind, intoxicated with scientific materialism, just enough rope by which to hang themselves.

The Mother is Rogue Weather, the wild nature behind the Four Horseman, and knows that life is hard, which is why She is the Gate of Death. The Being to/though which we surrender from the chaos of materialistic existence into the realm of true life.

As captured in the Pieta, She holds us dear, as a living way-station before we – out of ourselves – seek to examine the last life for its spiritual treasures and.lessons.

The Joker is Wild

The Joker is Wild

In certain realms of Faerie there has been a long artistic discussion of the Idea of the Joker, and the Idea of the Fool. No one really craves, or even needs, a resolution. The joy is in the flights of the poetic, given that there are a many of manys in the Ways to Seeing. Although, … the intoxicated poets want little to do with law-book poets, a feud several millennia old, which is – sadly – a tale for another time …

Re-considerations of these riddles arose soon after a remarkable joker-performance by the actor: Joaquin Phoenix. Many had believed Heath Ledger’s joker-performance could never be topped. There was a sigh then, among a few of the attending Fae, when Tiger-Saucy suggested that Joaquin’s work did not top Heath’s but rather bottomed it, given that it told the tale of the rite of passage before the Becoming.

A crude mind would view the fires, that Joaquin reveals&endures, as something horribly evil. Only raw evil can become a Joker, as played by Heath, who is not only an expert at creating chaos, but feeds on his creations with joy and laughter. Alfred, Batman’s mentor sez: “some people just want to watch the world burn.”

I know – personally – a lot about the Fool, having been one often, and also a student of the Tarot, the first book, where the Fool card can’t seem be in the same place or order from deck to deck. The idea of the Fool has been variously inscribed, one friend having called it – besides the Fool: Amor, or Love. The Fool does seem, in the image/symbolism, to be walking into danger … such as stepping of a cliff, or crossing a river on the back of crocodiles. The unknown is always potential … but then we take the step, or cross the river, and there you are – on the other side … the past behind us.

If you can believe Google, the Joker card was born, in America, during the Civil War. It is most often used as a “wild” card, being able to impose its will on a game. Since the Spring of 1940, when Batman #! appeared, the Joker has been used in DC comics lore as the supreme prankster of lawlessness, wearing “whiteface”, with floridly red lipstick.


Before going further, let us call to mind circus clowns and their makeup. For some folk, there exists a serious phobia about clowns. If we were a follower of Carl Jung, there might even be a name for this darkness potential of human beings.

If the Fool is Love, is the Joker Hate? For a simple minded moralist, one is an idiot, and the other the spawn of the devil.

If there can be anti-matter, why can there not be anti-love? Anti-love is not hate, it is callous indifference. It is not giving a shit about another’s pain. The Joker knows pain, has eaten pain all their life, and finally said “enough is enough” … with a bang, a fire, a large dash of chaos, and above all an absolute artistic surety that the whole thing is absurd, from beginning to end.

Often, the Jokers make chaos, without which the Fools would have no reason to rush in where angels fear to tread. In a certain sense, the human Wild that is of the Mother has two extremes: One destructive, and the other constructive. Each is a locus of danger, in part because of the tendency to reckless and impulsive behaviors, consequences be damned.

How many people dream of their enemies getting COVID-19 and dying?

Right now, to a certain degree, protests draw into their chaos-generation (refusing to follow laws) – both “types.” If your life on earth seems already to be hell, why not join in the dancing around the fires? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgrM4_JMi9w

“Most People With Coronavirus Won’t Spread It. Why Do a Few Infect Many?”

A lead paragraph in the digital New York Times, June 30th, 2020, headlined:
“Most People With Coronavirus Won’t Spread It. Why Do a Few Infect Many?”
“Growing evidence shows most infected people aren’t spreading the virus. But whether you become a superspreader probably depends more on circumstance than biology.”
Really?
That’s not the story that required masks and social distancing. Were we not told – quite hysterically actually, that was necessary, because all of us who get it would be contagious?
So, if you are tasked with managing the Narrative in order to save the theory, which is:
“Germs cause dis-ease. Germs can be passed from one person to another, and they will then get from that the dis-ease. Some illnesses are seen as highly contagiousness.[see link below]
The implication of the NYT story is that the old “facts” don’t work because as we test more and more people, those numbers grow, being given the fun name “cases”, Yet, the rate of change of the numbers of people with symptoms, is falling radically behind the rate of change of the numbers of “cases”.
Additionally there are “hot pockets” (my term), first one person has it, and then a lot of folk close to that person get it. The folk massaging the Narrative – as it fails – have dreamed up a good one: “superspreader”.
Think about this term: “get it”. An essential element of the “germ theory of illness” is contagion. However, the “numbers” don’t add up – very few of those now being tested (whatever that means) are – or become – symptomatic.
So the Narrative needs an adjustment, and lo’ and behold, in comes the “superspreader”. That kind of works with the phenomena that was noticed after the 1918 pandemic which wasn’t (read the Invisible Rainbow), which was that the “illness” appears widely, and more or less simultaneously.
Lots of near simultaneous “hot pockets” all over the world in the Spanish Flu event. Far enough apart that the contagion idea can’t even begin to explain the observable phenomena. Yet, the Narrative is more important than the truth, there being a lot of spoils for the victors, who get to rewrite history.
No contagious illness, no vaccines to patent and to sell.
Years ago, in biology, there arose a problem as to why “evolution” had these huge leaps. The “theory” required “gradualism”, over a lot of time, yet the leaps refuted that assertion.
For a time there was the “monster” theory, a sudden change via a single organism that mutated, and then those genes spread the changes that explained the evolutionary leap.
Eventually, a few noticed that while unusual changes occured, in the animal kingdom, if two different species successfully mated (for our story “monster” and “not yet a monster”) the offspring were sterile – the monster, if it ever existed (this is “theory” remember) would be a dead end.
The irony here is that this kind of thinking still dominates science, which is that if the facts don’t support a theory, invent an explanation, which lets you keep your story anyway, even though you don’t have real factual evidence – testable evidence. The story dominates how the phenomena are perceived, until the obvious anomalies burn the story to the ground.
Since the facts don’t support the idea of everyone is basically capable of infecting everyone else, then let us make up another “monster”: aka: the “superspreader”.
All the same, there does exist a “monster” in our social life, a superspreader meme if you will. Fear each other, because anyone can give us a potentially fatal contagious dis-ease, and please oh please, oh gods of commerce, invent me another toxic medicine that requires a needle.
they reply:
No problem. since we already knew you can’t get it through contact … we thought ahead, advertised the heck out of the Narrative that we want, so please let us break your skin and inject you with something never tested, that will look and act like the illness you otherwise are unlikely to get.
In the insanity of our greed, just what we need is another genetic weapon by which Owners can control the future evolution of humanity.
Time to stop being just another nicely trained animal, folks. Time to make packs, and such, new tribes if you would. The wage slaves, of whatever color of skin, living paycheck to paycheck, … an army of the unemployed, self-organizing, through the Mother’s version of “dating” events, the protest march.
The folk wisdom is that if a door closes, a window opens. Now imagine millions doing that together, in spite of the Owners efforts at social control.

Logical Problems with the present Narrative of the COVID-19 pandemic-Pandemonium.

From the heart’s mind of Joel A. Wendt: a white-privileged, Christian, son of Montana, American citizen, shaman, and professional heretic:

Logical Problems with the present Narrative of the COVID-19 pandemic-Pandemonium.

First: the Source: American citizens have little reason to trust the CDC, WHO, the American government, and multi-national corporations. Watch the movie on AIDS, “and the band played on”. Include, for our government, the recent movie “The Report” (How the CIA etc. hid from FBI oversight, the torture of so-called terrorists). Watch the movie, “The Post”, about the Pentagon Papers. Recall the story of the lies fabricated after 9/11, which led us into two wars, one of which is still ongoing.

Remember the image of Big Tobacco testifying before Congress and swearing under oath that they did not know nicotine was addictive. A lie – see the movie “The Insider”. Then, in the ‘90’s Big Pharma got Congress to pass a law making them immune to any suits based on the idea of vaccines causing illnesses and death. In my corner of reality, we call that covering your behind.

Second: Science: Anyone seriously aware of the state of natural science knows of the degeneration in that discipline due to the influence of money – big corporations do not just support pure science. They often reward papers inclined to be in favor of that corporation’s products. Eisenhower warned of this in the same speech where he told us to watch out for the “military industrial” complex.

In addition, science changes its mind, as needed. In medicine, that situation is stranger when we realize how the “practice” of industrial medicine mostly creates profit for large corporations. It can be argued cogently that doctors often miss-diagnose, prescribe the wrong medicine, and rightly get sued all the time. They are sometimes notoriously over-confident, which actually makes their assumptions even more dangerous.


The issue is that we have a lot more to learn about illness and dis-ease. To assume we have, from science, a viable and correct Narrative, is to assume perfection. Doctors are people, and people error.

The current Narrative is: Germs cause dis-ease. Germs can be passed from one person to another, and they will then get from that the dis-ease. Some illnesses are seen as highly contagiousness. Others not so much. Why?

The Media are useless: When you take a complicated problem and reduce it to its most hysterical presentation, that just makes everything seem worse than it actually is.

Some factoids, hidden among the thousands of numbers offered in major media, and social media.
The current numbers (when you cut through the jungle of assertion) reveal that a) everyone is exposed, or will be exposed. b) not everyone exposed will get caught by the tests to have what the test is looking for, which is the presence of an antibody.* c) not everyone who tests positive, will ever show symptoms. d) only a few of those with symptoms will need hospitalization, and not all of those who are hospitalized will die.

*[if you have had a flu vaccine in the last ten years, you will already have been “inoculated” with live COVID-strain bugs. Flu shots only help about 40% of the time, given the natural evolution of these kinds of organisms. This means that 60% get the flu anyway, in spite of having been “vaccinated”. Not a good track record, as we say.]

A rough estimate suggests that 90% of us fall into categories a), b), and, c). One crucial conclusion to draw from this is that this 90% is just fine in the absence of any vaccine. Only Big Pharma, and self-serving politicians, gain from scaring us all to the point of the law possibly being used to force us all to be vaccinated, without reason.

Why are people sick and dying, if the Narrative is wrong?

Flu-like illnesses are processes by which the organism eliminates toxins. We barf, we poop, we sweat, we cough. Still, what needs healing, especially when we have what the Narrative alleges in a pandemic?

Our normal bio-home contains trillions of tiny tiny tiny living organisms (bugs/germs/viruses etc). Because of the poisons (see next paragraph) regularly (flu is seasonal, remember) present, the chemistry of the bio-home changes, and becomes out of harmony with its preferred way of being. This is kind of like the pooled water in the far corner of the farm, where pond scum grows. These bugs grow in us because our normal systems have become abnormal, and as a consequence become a suitable growth medium for the germ. The proliferating germ is not the cause, but just another symptom.

The Cause: Corporations, with the cooperation of the relevant government agencies, have for a long time been free to release poisons into our water, our air, our food, and our medicines. The so-called anti-vax movement is dangerously close to making its case, as well, given that if you just look at the chemistry – forgetting it is a famous vaccine, these injections routinely include substances otherwise banned by the FDA.

The industries founded on scientific materialism have poisoned humanity. There are poisons in our water and air, named by the misdirecting euphemism: pollution. There are poisons on our food, and the more sensitive folk end up “gluten intolerant” (another misdirecting euphemism). Then there are the poisons in our medicines, so gracelessly called: “side-effects”.


There is a war going on over the future health of humanity, and the conscienceless multinational corporations and their bought and paid for politicians, don’t care – as long as massive profits from patents and so forth remain theirs with which to reward themselves, and their shareholders.

History tells stories, some of them horrible. History can also be adjusted if those who would gain from the lies have billions to spend on “public relations.”. What was said about the 1918 non-contagious Spanish-flu, in the immediate aftermath, has been “overwritten”

Get and read these three books: “the Invisible Rainbow”; “Plague of Corruption”; and, “Vaccines, Autoimmunity, and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illnesses”

Why these books? Because of how hard Big Pharma’s public relations juggernaut is trying to suppress them. Our ostensible leaders during this crisis have too much arrogant ignorance. The stronger they assert they know what is right, that’s how much they actually worry they don’t really know. The numbers experts (epidemiologists) just guess, and pretend to a certainty in a field where certainty is the last thing to find. As one doctor once told me (while ignored me telling him my symptoms came from a severe gluten attach): “association does not prove causality”.

The whole field of epidemiology is based on assuming that association (happening at the same time) does prove causality. Its just a guess, and an often ill-informed one at that.

Here’s the key thought/concept/idea: Our qualitative humanity is being attacked by a set of ways of thinking that treat the human being as a number. That is what the doctor does, he measures everything quantitatively. But that is not the qualitative reality of the patient. On a wider scale, the “patient” is the whole of humanity, whose collective health has been experimented upon, by an isolated aspect of the soul: abstract cause and effect thinking, whose essential methods lack life.

Modern medical science began by taking apart cadavers – a dead body. Physics thought the secrets were in whatever turned out to be the smallest part. Biology believes it knows the secrets of life, through its obsession with DNA. Kepler – an early astronomer and astrologer – warned that science was throwing out the baby with the bathwater – the ancient cultures being repositories of wisdom in all fields.

Human live on this living Planet is a school. We are close to ruining that sphere of life. Something dead, a heartless intellect, has come to rule our lives. Thought born in the heart’s mind knows that Natura is actually a real Goddess. Rogue weather is one of Her Arts and Crafts, as is the pandemic-Pandemonium.

There is a science question of some import, called: the Fermi Paradox. Namely, that the numbers of galaxies, stars, and planets suggests there has to be other intelligent life “out” there. Why haven’t they contacted us?

The better question is: How well are we listening? The baby that went out with the bathwater was the understanding that spirit was everywhere in the natural world, and that we are all intentionally created beings – nothing random about us at all. In fact, All Our Relations, the green world and the seas of stones, … their sailors, such as the four-legged and the winged above, and below the little people … elfs riding worms like in Dune, and gnomes singing poems to iron.

We worry about whether the weather is going, but don’t have the sense to try to learn how to ask those cloud-folk (see the movie Arrival) what’s going on. We treat the Creation as a thing, and ourselves as well when we only see health and illness as numbers, and flu season as something with which we cannot reason.

Read the books and learn. Ignore them and your ignorance will destroy us all. Social distancing, and wearing masks are not a factor in the reality of the normal dis-ease process involved in seasonal flu.

They are a factor, however, in the generation and cultivation of social fear. Will that fear lead to violence? Will that fear led to forced vaccinations? Will that fear to lead to the arrest, and incarceration in camps of non-conforming, and not actually contagious, fellow human beings?

Welcome to the Party, celebrating the dying and becoming of Western Civilization. HDT encouraged that we not trust “authority”, and – in fact – that we are right to disobey it.

Lies, Damn Lies, & Statistics: aka: Western Civilization and Its Discontents

Lies, Damn Lies, & Statistics: aka: Western Civilization and Its Discontents

Right now the biggest problem we all face is how does an individual find the truth in seas so treacherous. We tend to think in terms of this place or that place, this kind of people or that kind of people, and, this kind of government or that kind of government.

Yet, a core aspect of the pandemic-Pandemonium is that it does not obey geological boundaries, racial differences, and, which group believes it rules those that are below.

No one escapes the Return of the Son, and the Remembering of the Mother – events which are happening whether we believe Them or not. The Dawn of the Third Millennium is also the enactment of a Spiritual Rite never before seen in history remembered, although the legend of Atlantis, when the seas fell out of the sky*, should serve as a warning. The Divine Mystery can wipe the board clean anytime They wish.

The whole of humanity is ruled by a false religion, aka: scientific materialism = all is matter, there is no spirit. This arrogant ignorance, rooted in an intellect that has no heart, was a necessary blindness. The Mystery Itself wishes us to choose whether or not we relate to Them in the future. The current state of world civilization is a consequence of human freedom, even among so-called believers.

For each religion there are “issues”. Some are common/universal. For example, a book is seen as more filled with knowledge of the spirit, than the created-world itself. The writings of men, claiming divine inspiration, tell stories in conflict with the what-is that, their belief system asserts that their God created.

Scientific materialism no longer sees the ancient spirits, such as the Titans, at work in our rogue weather, earthquakes, tsunamis, wars, pandemics – the Four Horseman in all Their righteous glory. Materialism has emptied our minds and hearts of what many of those hearts and minds know to be true. The world is filled with Divine Consciousness, and They are looking over our existence with more sympathy than scientific materialism views the theoretical “matter only” physical world.

Right now humanity is faced with needing understanding of the real nature of the dis-ease processes, while materialistic-industrial medicine is lost, even though its best minds are trying very hard to help all of us.

The germ theory of dis-ease, and the ideas of contagious infections that rides in on those illusions, are not true. They are believed by the materialistic medical establishment, as well as government and business leaders. This is a kind of religious effect of scientific materialism … its claim of authority as to the truth, in a situation where the whole course of the pandemic-Pandemonium reveals ignorance, not knowledge.

We forget sometimes that a theory is a guess, and the history of medicine (and other kinds of allegedly scientific knowledge) is that the models/paradigms/tales change over time. We learn. We make mistakes, fall down. and go boom. What is being taught to us now? As we – as individuals – struggle to survive the Dying and Becoming of Western Civilization, we are right to focus on our personal circumstance. Make your life work, and leave to the Mystery the higher forms of Justice.

Let us consider, as an example, what I have named: the “Bill Gates syndrome”, a kind of mental (social-spiritual) dis-ease.

Scientific materialism, having gotten rid of any spirit at work in our world, has decreed a kind of supremacy to the ideas of chance, and random “accidents”. What the ancient Egyptian priests saw as Fate and Fortune in their Hermetic Science, many no longer believe, although some of that same many may find themselves using “what goes around comes around”, and “when the universe closes one door, it opens another.”

The “Bill Gates Syndrome” lets folk believe that the massive amounts of wealth&power they now hold, has not been bestowed by Fate and Fortune – it has been earned through their own genius. A self made man is the cliché.

The ego of such people then believes it can understand&know just how and why the world should develop according to their imaginary genius. George Soros writes treatises on developing democracy, while Bill Gates believes he knows the right way to help the world become more healthy. The creators of Google and Facebook and Amazon imagine there are no limits to their genius.

A well known – to the ancients – perception … is that Fate and Fortune are fickle masters. Once the scale – of what is believed to be under the control of those with the syndrome – reaches a certain level of complexity, chaos is present. “And this too shall pass” is the rule.

Ordinary people, given this situation of madness among the rich&powerful, will find that what they most need, in order to navigate the flowering of these seeds of destruction, is good company. Think globally, act locally, has never been a more needed wisdom than right now.

One of the more curious delusions is held by many ordinary people. In spite of massive historical evidence to the contrary, such folk believe corporations, and the governments they own, have in mind the best interests of their workers, consumers, and cannon fodder.

Oddly enough, the war is not so much about wealth&power, but about knowledge of what our existence actually means.

Scientific materialism sees a material/physical body, that can be infected by a tiny tiny tiny organism, to the point of grave illness and possible death. If the truth of the spirit is put back into our understanding, all of materialistic medicine falls apart.

There exists what needs to be called: the Narrative. Why folk trust this Narrative, given that it is sourced in people who lie for a living, is hard to fathom. Some of us are right to see that pandemic-Pandemonium as having aspects which threaten our freedoms, in a way they have not been assaulted since the madness in Europe that led to the Holocaust.

The masked and the unmasked. The right of the State to order folk to follow the advice of materialistic and industrial medicine to tell us what to do, because otherwise our failure will make others sick and die.

The industries founded on scientific materialism have poisoned humanity. There are poisons in our water and air, named by the misdirecting euphemism: pollution. There are poisons on our food, and the more sensitive folk end up “gluten intolerant” (another misdirecting euphemism). Then there are the poisons in our medicines, so gracelessly called: “side-effects”.

If you are getting your understanding of the pandemic-Pandemonium, from the evening news on television, you are getting a Narrative intentionally designed to keep us asleep, in large part by beginning to feed us the idea that our neighbor is the danger, and not the conscienceless multi-national corporation.

A crucial factoid to keep in mind: 90% of those with a confirmed presence of the bug in their bio-home, survive the illness, many never even getting symptomatic. Not one of them needed to be vaccinated with more poisons.

The Mystery of Technology in the Light of the Emerald Tablet

The Mystery of Technology in the Light of the Emerald Tablet

A decade, or so, ago, I wrote a small book: “The Mystery of Evil in the Light of the Sermon on the Mount” (1). This was a follow up companion to a longer book: “The Art of God – an actual theory of Everything” (2). The deeper questions of the real nature and purpose of “evil”, especially that aspect of human inner life involving the “three-fold double complex”, begin and end with self-knowledge. We don’t know evil except we first know it in ourselves.

The remarks in the Sermon on the Mount, connected to the admonition to “judge not”, advise that if we really want to help another with their “mote”, we first need to remove the “beam” from out of our own heart’s mind.

In the communities of folk, who have felt inspired by the work&life of Rudolf Steiner, this problem of evil has become deeply involved with the question of the true nature and meaning of technology, and electricity (3). This confusion of evil and technology is rooted in the frequent use by Steiner linking the ideas of good&evil to humanity’s relationship with the Inner Earth, … spiritual realms where reside Beings of great and ancient powers. Steiner experienced this realm as a clairvoyant spiritual-scientific investigator of these inner “layers”, many of which he described as evil, and as sources of something called “black magic”.

Most readers of Steiner buy into this point of view of sub-nature or sub-sensible forces. Give that what Steiner reported – from his “researches” into the Inner Earth – is completely wrong (4), a rather peculiar problem arises, especially in the sense of our methods of spiritual perception and cognition.

This also makes for a kind of cruel paradox for Steiner readers, which is that if Steiner got the meaning and significance of the Inner Earth wrong, what does that fact mean as regards other offerings of Steiner to the world. Are they too “wrong” in some sense?

This question disappears if we stop treating all that he said as if it was absolutely true. Steiner readers too often make a “bible” of what he said&wrote, and constantly use his words as final answers to complicated questions. The result is a kind of religion I have come to call: Steinerism. To engage with a mind given over to Steiner-thought, is to leave the fields of scientific investigations for discourse which is essentially theological in nature. Various folk argue over what Steiner said/meant, but existentially it is impossible to argue with a dead man’s true believers.

Steiner showed the Way out of this confusion in his first four books (GA-1 to GA-4), where he points to the personality of Goethe, and to Goethe’s phenomenological investigations of Nature. We let the phenomena speak, rather than bring to it a ready made idea/concept. We perceive first, and thought comes next. What concepts we let into our heart’s mind, from reading Steiner, are ghosts in between our own perceiving self, and the object of knowledge

Not only that, but in the above four books we can begin to understand that the human being is Nature observing Itself, and in human thought/cognitions that act of perception becomes creative. We add to the thought world concepts that did not previously exist. We give to our experience the core of human “meaning”, which ultimately needs to be understood as personal.

Meaning is to become individualized, an element that disappears in those communities where folk engage in theological representations based on any “master’s words”. As Emerson observed, … to place our own heart’s mind in orbit around the thoughts of another personality is to disable our own latent potential for acts of individual genius.

None of this means that we – ourselves – cannot personally confirm something toward which Steiner pointed. On that personal act our future spiritual development depends. To become dependent on Steiner-said is to lame the own soul, and worse … to model voluntary mental servitude.

Technology is not something new. The Hermetic Science (aka: magic) of the ancient Egyptians is a science of techniques (5). Ceremonies. Religious objects and tools. Evocations of the direct perception of those immortal beings, who Steiner has suggested went through a “human” development before ours. We are right then to ask ourselves, just what does it mean to be “human”?

There is a tale of a Garden, in which stood two trees. The tree of knowledge of good and evil, and the tree of life. Although advised otherwise, being human in that moment meant accepting the temptation to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The “Garden” (aka: Faerie, the Underworld, the Upsidedown, the Lost Cities … just a few of the names for that which we once knew) … the Garden is lost, but not forgotten.

Part of this prior existence – Steiner suggests – included an ability to see otherwise invisible beings, in an otherwise visible or sensible environment. Poetically … we are born of life&light, within life&light, via a process that means to free us from any dependence on this originally external life&light.

The method (or technology) of the Divine Mystery is to turn inside out (involute) light and darkness. This has been called: the Fall. We fell away from life&light into death&darkness. The principle means, to effect this darkness, is to begin to perceive in the world this darkness. Not so much in ourselves, but in others.

The fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil is in our nature. When Steiner approached the Inner Being of the Earth, he brought with him unresolved issues of good and evil, given that the time in which he taught found that duality a descriptive necessity for modern existence. Essentially, in spite of his attainments, he remained “human”, as do we.

Technology too evolves.

For millennia human beings have had a devotional relationship with the world of experience. Practices and traditions endured, where the Mother (the Goddess) was still perceived. With the coming of the three patriarchal monotheisms, these most ancient Ways surrendered to a process where something new was to be discovered by the human being. Something within the human being.

Something free.

We have a hard time, us moderns, having the ideas of past and future. There is no past, or future, only Now. Without a doubt, there are patterns. Stories of past remembered, and observed to have order, which order continues. There is also disorder, or the paradox of the order in disorder – what Socrates might have noted as Divine Whimsy.

The modern human being has become, in certain limited respects, the author of the direction of the Now. Our choices have consequences. This stark fact reveals that a kind of torch has been passed from the Greater Divine Mystery, to the lesser divine mystery. We create objects out of stuff in new ways, and often ignorant of what is the real nature of the stuff we carelessly transform into forces of death. Keep in mind that the stuff we transform via our “technological accomplishments”, … that stuff we never made.

The Mystery made the stuff, and in fact is the stuff. We just dug it up from where She had put it, and went so far as to blow a hole in forever with our plutonium experiments. We did that, They did not.

That fact hides a very difficult truth, which can only be understood poetically by saying that the divine mystery aspect of the free human being, in this unfolding of unrestrained technological innovation, is aptly named in Revelations, as: “the Beast from the Abyss”. Abyss, in this case, referrers to a realm where the Mother resides, that Steiner never got to enjoy, … the Realm of the Unformed and Uncreated. Human freedom is at play in the realm of that which has not yet been formed or created.

Magic resides there, i.e. the Being of Magic. The Goddesses Hecate & Circe to the Greeks, and the God Heka to the Egyptians. To know Her/Him/It/Them requires surrender, given that is the Way to the Wild in Nature – the Act of Surrender. Steiner, the spiritual investigator, met what was unredeemed in his own soul, because Their Surrender to us is so complete it is like meeting ourselves.

Those wishing to understand modern “technology”, will find the best help in the most ancient technology: Magic. Until human beings begin to have intercourse with the spirits behind the veil of the sensible world, these human beings will not understand what has come to “live” in the stuff&things we make, out of stuff&things we did not make.

This means that the basis for a “moral” technology so many pursue, needs to begin with accepting what They did, and not arguing it never should have appeared in the first place. It (a moral technology) is not in the nature of the objects, but in the moral nature of the thinking-means which produces the objects.

That technology exists, which we don’t like (5G, chem-trails, HAARP etc), is not the riddle. The riddle is are human beings willing to do the work required to have direct and personal intercourse with the Beings living in the “tech”. An I and Thou relationship needs to arise, and for that we need to know the secrets of the Emerald Tablet (6).

On such paths lie many open secrets, whose teachings for our Journey through the Dying and Becoming of Western Civilization depends (7).

The Myth of Artificial Intelligence

The Myth of Artificial Intelligence

Carl Unger, a student of Rudolf Steiner, points out that in the early part of the 20th Century natural science (led by mathematical-physics) stopped investigating the phenomena, and began to create theories of the fundamental nature of “things”. It is crucial to appreciate the step being taken here.

What happened was that the process of measurement of the tiniest entities ran into a paradox. If we sought the location of one of these “particles”, the instrument we used disturbed the particle, making it impossible to also know that piece of stuff’s velocity. If we measured velocity, we could not discover location.

For somewhat mysterious reasons mathematical-physics decided that the problem was not a limit of our technological means of observation, but represented an actual limit to Nature Herself. This “mistake” came about – in part – because the general direction of the investigation of tiny stuff&things had a kind of momentum. A direction taken had to continue to fall toward its “destiny”, as it were.

Can we find a deeper understanding of the “force” inducing this destiny-direction?

Over in the realm – where the idea of the evolution of consciousness hangs out – it is understood that around the year 1500 human consciousness took a step that came to be named by some: the on-looker separation. For example, in the Lakota Sioux language, it is not possible to say: I hit you. Only: we hit us. The names of what we think of today as individuals was then often linked more to family and place (John’s son; de Chardin) than as an individual.

In Owen Barfield’s works we can discover many details, including his observation that the Scholastics of the 12th and 13th Century used the word “participation” – a lot. They felt themselves as a participant in the natural world, not as the separate existence we take for granted today.

It is during this change of consciousness that painting acquires depth and perspective. Ultimately this change leads to the passage from Euclidean Geometry, to Projective Geometry, an evolution of how to include infinite elements, and polar and paradoxical relationships, known among some of Steiner’s students as: Space and Counter-space; Center and Periphery; or as George Adams puts it: Physical and Ethereal Spaces.

A secondary effect, at the social level, was the emancipation of thinking from the dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church: aka: the Copernican Revolution. The earth revolves around the sun, not the sun around the earth. New toys arise for the elites who have time to study, such as telescopes, microscopes, and prisms.

The world of Nature, formerly believed to be inhabited by its own divine intelligence, became an unfeeling thing to take apart. Natural Philosophy (aka: science) separates itself from the influence of religion and of art.

Faced with the riddle of our limits to know, we decided that it was a feature of Nature that caused the resulting uncertainty. So mathematical-physics then began to imagine (theorize) about tiny tiny entities that we did not see, but had to be there somehow, especially if we faced the riddles of radiating matter.

What was that which left an image on paper in the presence of naturally radiating material?

Things&stuff had to be made up of tiny bits that could only appear to the imagination as a guess, for which then we might devise instrumentation to enable us to prove our guesses (aka: the Cern super hadron collider).

Another way to view this is that the human intellect (science without religion or art) required the creation/development of abstract cause and effect ideas for explaining the world. An imbalance in the soul, which leads to even further reaches of the fall into our material destiny.

The basic idea of quantum mechanics is that nature has a state of existence as potential, yet to be realized. Is this idea true (science), good (religion), and beautiful (art)? How would we know?

One aspect that we do know is that Cern has tested, via a multi-billion dollar machine, theory after theory – based on the ideas of this “quantum” state of existence – and has yet to prove any one of them to be true. The closest mathematical-physics came to this goal, was the seeking for the “god” particle, which was needed in order to explain the idea of “mass”. Claims of proof were made, and then defeated.

The quantum world remained an idea, and this is its curse upon modern life. A ghost in the machine of our intellectual efforts to see the world. As Rudolf Steiner points out, a false idea exists as much as does a true idea. Human beings – in our time – use the abstract cause and effect intellect to generate a whole world of thought which is not true. The quantum world does not exist, other than as a poorly thought out set of conceptions.

Thus, through a necessary introduction, we come face to face with the Myth of Artificial Intelligence. It is an untrue idea we made up out of our limited abstract cause and effect thinking.

To go where we need to go next, we must consider Rudolf Steiner’s references to a kind of cosmic spiritual being he called: Ahriman. In many different ways Steiner pointed to our present Age as dominated by this Being.

Among Steiner students there are other myths, which are generated by the same abstract cause and effect thinking noticed above. In general the flaw is to believe that that which is “ahrimanic” is caused by this entity as if from some nether regions of hell. Nothing could be more untrue, and dangerously so.

The most ancient sciences, such as the Hermetic Science (aka: magic) of the ancient Egyptians, saw the human being as the microcosm, an exact analogue of the Macrocosm. What is great in the Universe is also true of human nature. Our personal “intellect” is the source of the “ahrimanic”.

This abstract cause and effect thinking has taken to seeing human consciousness as a consequence of the nature of matter, of the stuff&things themselves. No spirit, just matter, sings scientific materialism.

It is in this swamp of mistaken intellectualization that we give birth to the idea of a synthetic or artificial intelligence. The Mystery of Technology is – on one level – a set of events where the things&stuff help us continue the fall toward our material destiny.

Having removed from our idea of Nature, the concept of Her having an independent cosmic intelligence, we tend to see the “tech” also as empty of spirit. Fascinated with the paradoxes of the tiny tiny tiny “things” we make devices where we imagine something akin to our intelligence can arise.

Abstract cause and effect thinking then imagines that “code” can replicate on some level the act of thinking which we enjoy. We are not code. We just are living chaos (the Mother principle) and order the Father principle) at war with itself, having a sentient interior self-consciousness no tech will ever possess.

All the same, the abstract cause and effect intellect continues to generate fanciful ideas, such as quantum computing. A world of illusion built upon another illusion (untrue, non-artistic, and, amoral)

Our artists imagine all manner of terrible future possibilities, while the scientists fascinated with their toys, say: Don’t worry, we know what we are doing.

Abstract cause and effect thinking raises the forces of death that Steiner points out as inhabiting our modern understanding of the empty of spirit world’s phenomenal nature. Where are the forces of the Tree of Life, which we can only find when we pass through/beyond the trial of the fall, that came with our eating of the fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil?

Steiner’s “third force” is magic. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2019/05/20/letters-about-magic/

this series of letters considers the relationship between the four classical elements of the ancient Egyptians (fire, air, water, earth), and the four fundamental forces/transformations of modern physics (gravity, electo-magnetic, and the strong and weak nuclear interactions)”

TO REPEAT FOR EMPHASIS

The Myth of Artificial Intelligence

Carl Unger, a student of Rudolf Steiner, points out that in the early part of the 20th Century natural science (led by mathematical-physics) stopped investigating the phenomena, and began to create theories of the fundamental nature of “things”. It is crucial to appreciate the step being taken here.

If we sought the location of one of these “particles”, the instrument we used disturbed the particle, making it impossible to also know that piece of stuff’s velocity. If we measured velocity, we could not discover location.

For somewhat mysterious reasons mathematical-physics decided that the problem was not a limit of our technological means of observation, but represented an actual limit to Nature Herself. This “mistake” came about – in part – because the general direction of the investigation of tiny stuff&things had a kind of momentum. A direction taken had to continue to fall toward its “destiny”, as it were.

Can we find a deeper understanding of the “force” inducing this destiny-direction?

Over in the realm – where the idea of the evolution of consciousness hangs out – it is understood that around the year 1500 human consciousness took a step that came to be named by some: the on-looker separation. For example, in the Lakota Sioux language, it is not possible to say: I hit you. Only: we hit us. The names of what we think of today as individuals was then often linked more to family and place (John’s son; de Chardin) than as an individual.

In Owen Barfield’s works we can discover many details, including his observation that the Scholastics of the 12th and 13th Century used the word “participation” – a lot. They felt themselves as a participant in the natural world, not as the separate existence we take for granted today.

It is during this change of consciousness that painting acquires depth and perspective. Ultimately this change leads to the passage from Euclidean Geometry, to Projective Geometry, an evolution of how to include infinite elements, and polar and paradoxical relationships, known among some of Steiner’s students as: Space and Counter-space; Center and Periphery; or as George Adams puts it: Physical and Ethereal Spaces.

A secondary effect, at the social level, was the emancipation of thinking from the dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church: aka: the Copernican Revolution. The earth revolves around the sun, not the sun around the earth. New toys arise for the elites who have time to study, such as telescopes, microscopes, and prisms.

The world of Nature, formerly believed to be inhabited by its own divine intelligence, became an unfeeling thing to take apart. Natural Philosophy (aka: science) separates itself from the influence of religion and of art.

Faced with the riddle of our limits to know, we decided that it was a feature of Nature that caused the resulting uncertainty. So mathematical-physics then began to imagine (theorize) about tiny tiny entities that we did not see, but had to be there somehow, especially if we faced the riddles of radiating matter.

What was that which left an image on paper in the presence of naturally radiating material?

Things&stuff had to be made up of tiny bits that could only appear to the imagination as a guess, for which then we might devise instrumentation to enable us to prove our guesses (aka: the Cern super hadron collider).

Another way to view this is that the human intellect (science without religion or art) required the creation/development of abstract cause and effect ideas for explaining the world. An imbalance in the soul, which leads to even further reaches of the fall into our material destiny.

The basic idea of quantum mechanics is that nature has a state of existence as potential, yet to be realized. Is this idea true (science), good (religion), and beautiful (art)? How would we know?

One aspect that we do know is that Cern has tested, via a multi-billion dollar machine, theory after theory – based on the ideas of this “quantum” state of existence – and has yet to prove any one of them to be true. The closest mathematical-physics came to this goal, was the seeking for the “god” particle, which was needed in order to explain the idea of “mass”. Claims of proof were made, and then defeated.

The quantum world remained an idea, and this is its curse upon modern life. A ghost in the machine of our intellectual efforts to see the world. As Rudolf Steiner points out, a false idea exists as much as does a true idea. Human beings – in our time – use the abstract cause and effect intellect to generate a whole world of thought which is not true. The quantum world does not exist, other than as a poorly thought out set of conceptions.

Thus, through a necessary introduction, we come face to face with the Myth of Artificial Intelligence. It is an untrue idea we made up out of our limited abstract cause and effect thinking.

To go where we need to go next, we must consider Rudolf Steiner’s references to a kind of cosmic spiritual being he called: Ahriman. In many different ways Steiner pointed to our present Age as dominated by this Being.

Among Steiner students there are other myths, which are generated by the same abstract cause and effect thinking noticed above. In general the flaw is to believe that that which is “ahrimanic” is caused by this entity as if from some nether regions of hell. Nothing could be more untrue, and dangerously so.

The most ancient sciences, such as the Hermetic Science (aka: magic) of the ancient Egyptians, saw the human being as the microcosm, an exact analogue of the Macrocosm. What is great in the Universe is also true of human nature. Our personal “intellect” is the source of the “ahrimanic”.

This abstract cause and effect thinking has taken to seeing human consciousness as a consequence of the nature of matter, of the stuff&things themselves. No spirit, just matter, sings scientific materialism.

It is in this swamp of mistaken intellectualization that we give birth to the idea of a synthetic or artificial intelligence. The Mystery of Technology is – on one level – a set of events where the things&stuff help us continue the fall toward our material destiny.

Having removed from our idea of Nature, the concept of Her having an independent cosmic intelligence, we tend to see the “tech” also as empty of spirit. Fascinated with the paradoxes of the tiny tiny tiny “things” we make devices where we imagine something akin to our intelligence can arise.

Abstract cause and effect thinking then imagines that “code” can replicate on some level the act of thinking which we enjoy. We are not code. We just are living chaos (the Mother principle) and order the Father principle) at war with itself, having a sentient interior self-consciousness no tech will ever possess.

All the same, the abstract cause and effect intellect continues to generate fanciful ideas, such as quantum computing. A world of illusion built upon another illusion (untrue, non-artistic, and, amoral)

Our artists imagine all manner of terrible future possibilities, while the scientists fascinated with their toys, say: Don’t worry, we know what we are doing.

Abstract cause and effect thinking raises the forces of death that Steiner points out as inhabiting our modern understanding of the empty of spirit world’s phenomenal nature. Where are the forces of the Tree of Life, which we can only find when we pass through/beyond the trial of the fall, that came with our eating of the fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil?

Steiner’s “third force” is magic. https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2019/05/20/letters-about-magic/

this series of letters considers the relationship between the four classical elements of the ancient Egyptians (fire, air, water, earth), and the four fundamental forces/transformations of modern physics (gravity, electo-magnetic, and the strong and weak nuclear interactions)”

Just Enough Rope

Just Enough Rope

understanding the spiritual-social nature

of the pandemic-Pandemonium

by Joel A. Wendt

Imagine sitting at a round table, attended by spirits formerly known as Socrates, Matthew, George Washington, and Clara Barton. In my second childhood, I have started describing myself as a “white-privileged, Christian, son of Montana, American citizen, shaman, and professional heretics” for number of reasons, including that these are some of my present day spiritual tutors.

Socrates understands this COVID-19 crime scene much better than most do today. Few of us even know this is a war against human freedom, on a scale that might well exceed the holocaust. To Socrates such tumultuous events are always under the rule of the Gods&Goddesses, whose mode of operation had a basic observable rule: Everyone gets just enough rope, by which to hang themselves.

What that means is that the rich and powerful will reach just far enough so as to destroy themselves. Hopefully that will be a slow process.

Matthew has the view that it is time for the modern Kings’ streams to wash the feet of the Shepherds’ streams. He wonders why Goethean Science seems to belong to just a few, when what is required is to spread the knowledge that scientific proof of the Divine Mystery’s presence in Nature has been realized. He even nominates 12 books as modern Gospels of the Second Coming. For example imagine a (not the) … gospel of physics, or organic chemistry, or the imagination. Details are here:

George Washington … he weeps. Such dreams, now fallen. Yet, he sees a people of peoples forged in fire, and eager to seize life and freedom in even the most dire circumstances. As a one time general, well aware of Divine Providence, he admires the way that She – who has the whole world in His Hands – has set the stage. Stopping – for a moment – the headlong lemming rush to social chaos: aka: the dying and becoming of Western Civilization.

Her Arts gifting all of us human folk a “time out”, so as to reflect on the shared madness. At which the Beings of Nature sigh with relief, for at least a temporary lessening of the destruction of the Earth’s Sphere of Life.

Then there is Clara Barton … fierce and full of rage, tempered by Faith. She wants to run toward the fire, looking to help, to hold, to touch, and care without fear of personal risk. Do not go to hospitals she warns. People of the pandemic-Pandemonium need to do the exact opposite of the vaccine patent-holding fear-monger’s advice. When we have the dis-ease processes of elimination in play, rest, touch, knowing someone is right there with them, lets folk surrender to the bodies wisdom. Modern industrial medicine – haunted by death forces – just adds more stress via hospitalization, not less – stress being the underlying “cause” of such illness-processes, in the first place.

When the five of us hang out, She is with us, inspiring intuitions.

Some of Her recent Deeds: https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2020/06/04/riots-and-such/

The visible hallmark of Her attention is in the aftermath of events, whether floods, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, and such. We – humans – can usually see the-what-led-up to the crisis, but not so much appreciate the genius of what comes next.

The core attribute is that by Her engendering of social chaos, She is able to move folk out of their habits, and into situations where they just might realize that all us of need each other more than we let on. For example, after and during a flood people are displaced, and must seek shelter in public spaces, such as a high school gym filled with a few hundred folding cots.

Also present, helping volunteers. People, who would never otherwise meet each other, brought together by Her Rogue Weather. An offshoot of which might be the breaking of dams and the freeing of rivers to carry – outside the prisons in which we have caged them – nutrients which the land needs.

Cranky-Socrates again: beware of numbers, and number users. The necessary truths will appear among the poets and other artists. Ever hopeful Matthew: let protest and riot grow into celebration and theater [ http://ipwebdev.com/celebration/ ] .
