Ghostbusters Afterlife: Thoughts on Transitioning to the Great Beyond

One of the first pieces I wrote for Limited Hangout was a philosophical movie review of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot film and what it revealed concerning the astral plane (or at least memetic frames in the collective human aethers concerning the astral plane anyway). While the pseudo-controversy that surrounded that…

Weaponizing the Noosphere: Cybernetic Entrapment of The Human Heart-Mind

I explored how nature has been used for any number of various political theories—liberal democratic, fascist, monarchical, communist—as a way to seek to buttress or validate those political belief systems.

The Spectre of Marxism: High Socialist Strangeness

“A spectre is haunting Europe—the spectre of communism.” —Karl Marx Recently Ezekiel73 penned this epic piece exploring what I call MK-(C)Ultra, i.e. a pathological trauma-induced cultural reality. In other words, MK-(C)Ultra involves social engineering and culture creation on a mass scale based out of…
