It is a good moment to briefly write about Method. It may seem too obvious to note, but this blog and the shifting community of similar blogs and researchers are not using the scientific method. We are not scientists. Perhaps we use the tools, observations, theories and metaphors of science but we apply them for our own purposes. This is a good thing. The scientific method is too limited for our project, and it actually might be a barrier to reaching our goal.
method is great for finding information that is universal, reproducible
under laboratory conditions, and can be objectively and mathematically
verified. Unfortunately, what we are looking at does not necessarily
meet these conditions.
We are examining the interrelation of outer space
and inner mind. This is inherently subjective, singular and deeply
personal. Because of this our methods are also very different from those
of modern science. We are a lot closer to the Medieval alchemists and
Renaissance hermeticists than we are to modern scientists. Again, I
think this is a good thing.
We begin with intuitions.
These intuitions are "confirmed" by synchronicity, and through
synchronicity we start to discern a pattern. This is exactly how
traditional tables of magical correspondences were established.
Sensitive people, likely shamans and sages, noted the synchronistic
linking of certain "symbols" -- the moon and silver for example, and
derived tangible effects by harnessing the power of these associations.
Magic grew out of similar systems of correspondences. Inner and outer patterns
were not separated as they are today. Every object, every person was
seen as being a reflection of the whole. In this way everything was
entirely connected to everything else. This is what we are beginning to
In a sense, then, our method is exactly
magic. Magic, even now, is taboo because it works. It works because,
more than any other system of thought, it understands that the nature of
reality is linguistic, even poetic, and through manipulation of
language we can alter reality. The universe is not a vast law-bound
machine. It is a dream. The shamans and magicians knew this and this is being rediscovered.
What the Gnostics called
the Archons, the powers and principalities of this world, are able to
maintain power over the world because they monopolize these magical
methods. They have convinced most modern people that effective and novel
knowledge can only be gained through science. Most people are not
scientists, and most scientists are narrow specialists, so people resign
themselves to never being able to discover anything new about the
People are starting to see through this lie. Each individual
is the master explorer of his or her own consciousness and encapsulated
inside this consciousness is the entire cosmos. This is the primary secret that
the Archons want to prevent people from knowing. If this was revealed
fully their reign would immediately end.
plank of the Archon's spell is the deception of linear time. We are
conditioned to believe that C proceeds from B which in turn is caused by
A. All events have immediately prior causes, and usually we are also
provided with the Official Story of these causes.
What the shamans,
magicians and poets realized, though, was that all times and places
exist at once. Everything is simultaneous and ubiquitous. We really
exist in the Eternal Now. Eternity is not infinite duration, but a
singularity and a simultaneity of everything at once.
is why our method is so radical. By making more and more connections,
and most importantly by imbuing them with deeply personal meaning, we
are breaking down the tyranny of linear time and causality. Once this
goes all other control systems will quickly collapse in tandem.
get a lot of help with this Herculean task. This was also the aim of
Joyce and Blake. This was also the task of all of the great epic poems
from Gilgamesh onwards -- to present the entire tapestry of human
imagination in one work. This is what I see that all of us are trying to
In a sense, then, we are not trying to
find some Truth that is Out There. There are no facts, as Nietzsche
taught, only interpretations. In this way we differ greatly from the
"Truth Movement." There is no Real Story to unveil behind transformative
events like 9/11. To assert otherwise is to build yet another
foundation, yet another Official Story. By attempting to do this we keep
the Spell firmly intact.
These events represent immensely powerful occult
workings and it is our job to prevent them from being frozen into any
one interpretation. Their energies must be released by forging pathways
of connection to all things. Power, both physically and symbolically,
must not be monopolized.
It has now been eleven years
since 9/11, which coincidentally or not was also a Tuesday. Even now
people are continuing to die in direct consequence of this event.
Despite the heroic efforts of members of the Truth Movement -- which has
awakened millions to the fact that the Official Story is a lie, the
reigning powers seem more resolved than ever to let the entire system
collapse before they reveal what really happened.
What realistically did
we expect? Did we think that justice would be served? 9/11 is just too big, it has had
too much of a historic impact, for TPTB to willingly shatter its myth.
The 9/11 Truth Movement has very similar aims and expectations to the UFO Disclosure Movement. Both hope that ultimately the system will blow the whistle on itself. This is not likely to happen. Instead, we do not have to demand or wait for a "disclosure." We already know that things are not as they are presented. Why do we need the system to admit this?
The only reason why it would do so is if it could no longer ensure its survival except in disclosing the "truth" -- in other words by trying yet another trick. Instead of waiting for this to happen, instead of letting ourselves to be spun into a tighter turn of deception, we can use our knowledge to further fragment the ruling Spell and to begin to imagine for ourselves. Let this be our aim and method.
