The Form of Formless Mysticism: On The Causal State

In a series of previous pieces I’ve been exploring the traditional teaching of the three great states of realms—known in the East as the gross (aka psychic), the subtle, and the causal. There is also a fourth—the nondual—which is the essence or common substrate of the…

Embracing The Grey: A Review of Daniel Pinchbeck's Occult Control System

“What prevents the UFO and alien topic from becoming culturally acceptable is that we lack a framework for understanding it or giving it meaning. It remains unpresentable, unfathomable. If we are going to assimilate it - and perhaps even neutralize the implicitly threatening aspects of it - we must develop…

On The Ethical Responsibility of Becoming a god: A Critique of Secular Transhumanism

”Transhumanists like myself, who encourage shedding our biological limitations in favor of becoming technological gods, are broadly secular.”  —Zoltan Istvan In a previous piece I laid out an overview of orthodox Christian theology with a view to exploring transhumanism as fundamentally rooted (though unconsciously) in that Christian mythos. There’s…

The Unconscious Christian Theology of Transhumanism

In this piece I want to lay some groundwork for further explorations, specifically around transhumanism. In particular I want to explore the often unconscious Christian theology at the heart of officially atheist/secular transhumanist thought.

Depending on one’s theological preference one…

Reptilians Are (Imaginally) Real: On Symbolic Truth in David Icke's Lizard People

[Author's Note: Literally a day after publishing this piece, news came in that youtube purged David Icke's videos from the site. Which automically raises the question: If he is such a crackpot conspiracy kook like he's typically portrayed in the mainstream media then why bother censoring him? What if there…

The Stages of Conspiratorial Grief: Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and the Para-Political Path of Death & Rebirth

In a previous piece I explored the path of studying parapolitical/conspiratorial insights as akin, though distinct from, the path of spiritual awakening. It’s not coincidental that the classic metaphor used in conspiracy world is “going down the rabbit hole”, which is after all reference to shamanic initiation and…

Phenomenal Trauma: Further Thoughts on Alien Abductions

This piece is a followup to an earlier piece exploring the alien abduction phenomenon. In that piece I argued that the alien abduction phenomenon has never truly been taken seriously as a form of trauma and for that research to deepen and grow it needs to be more seriously study…
