I have learned that, in the process of writing these post, the mechanics of synchromysticism, and I, might have a more unique relationship than I have ever cared to appreciate. As, in “real life”, I am preparing for a whole new adventure, in the form of understanding computers, and an all new appreciation for exacting logic and such unforgiving, technological opportunity, through much practiced, patience and discipline.
While my mind converts some data to binary code with the possibility of being recalled later, other data is left begging for a radically different means of expression. So the method is Sync, the aim is art, and the weaponry, all magickal. The results are an unusual but potent mix of shamanistic euphoria and comparative de ja vue through mythological gestures.
The product feels genuine because certain principles speak for themselves, when writing and google search engine driven collages, are the medium. At least, for one such New Orleans based observer of the phenomenon, turned programmer of a socially networked simulation, the ritual of blending all the above contents into something hopefully digestible is a process worth experiencing.
It would probably bore the both of us, if I continued to give you a blow by blow, shot for shot, re-enactment of a sinister procession of the last century of secrets. Yelling from the sidelines, questions and comments, to better understand a shady network of ideas that overwhelm us in all forms archonic, technology based, and or alien.
We tend to think in terms of certain such ideas, “ruling” us, for quite sometime, and the foreseeable future. I think the Gnostic trance of pulp fiction productivity, and the demonic forces which oppose, inspire, and possess us to create such art, is pivotal in understanding the kinds of things we can observe, and learn about our own creative juices, regarding visionaries in their respective niches like Jack Kirby, Philip K. Dick, Alan Moore, Austin Osman Spare and David Wise.
Starting at the interpretation of the Fourth Reich in the new Man In the High Castle Amazon series, and how it alone can be compared to the popular narrative of collectively acknowledged conspiracy literature, and working our way through P.K.D.’s work at that heady level, through other installations of the Manichean struggle between the Solid State Intelligence and humanity; or messages via Valis (read in this context as the Black Knight Satellite awakening members of Aramcheck to keep the Man in check), to Minority Report and how closely it resembles the pre-cognitive military and Intelligence Agency applications and technological crime predictability statistics, dystopian views of Mars that parallel Doctor Who’s in Total Recall, seemingly more dripping wet, paranoia via a real deep surveillance state A Scanner Darkly, we can begin to appreciate how visionary P.K.D. really was. Directly appropriate to everything I tend to work on,are other gems such as, Radio Free Albemuth , Thirteenth Floor, and another film that’s been perfect to ponder over, while diving head first into understanding computers, artificial intelligence, and simulacra, World On A Wire.
Let us begin by giving the floor to Gordon White, who sets the stage for how far this tale reaches back in time, where, as usual, certain pulp fiction seems more in tune with the truth, than textbook archaeology:
The most intriguing part of Crowley’s Cairo adventure for me is him entertaining his wife with a few werelights in the Kings Chamber of the Great Pyramid. He was very dismissive of magic in general at that point, and -despite summoning something to physical appearance- actually said “what’s the point of it?”
The next time they were in town things got a bit more interesting for them both.
Until recently, I’ve only ever encountered one other person with a similar analysis of Crowley’s Cairo experience: Vinay -who, by way of introduction, would like you to know that the Department of Defense once referred to him as a Nepalese magical master :). It was an absolute delight to hear each other’s lunatic words come out of the other’s mouth. Before we got onto time-travelling space squids, we discussed the reception of the Book of The Law recently over whisky and burgers in London.
Ponder on this:
When was the last time anything as ‘big’ as Crowley performed a magical act inside that stellar immortality machine?
Centuries, at least. Perhaps millennia? Whatever your opinion of Crowley, it’s extremely difficult to argue that he didn’t have mad wizard skillz. And I’ve been to enough sacred sites to know that they can be inadvertently activated, even by one with skills as profoundly limited as myself.
It’s my current contention -and Vinay’s as well, although I don’t want to get any of my crazy on him- that Crowley (to really annoy you all with my metaphor) activated the download of the space ship blueprints otherwise meant for a Pharaoh. All that stuff about slaves and kings in the Book of the Law gets thrown into new light, doesn’t it?–Crowley and the Nine
(check out the Vallee and Lam section for the evolution of these ideas, but Siriusly read the whole thing as it really does give context to the following.)
This Steamshovel Press article by A.K. Wilks got me started thinking in new directions along already quite familiar paths, particularly when it comes to the similarities regarding the possible alien contact (or: messages of alien origin, to be more direct) of people like Robert Anton Wilson, Philip K Dick, John C Lily, Albert Hoffman, and John Lennon.
(My brain starts to overload when I consider the contact/messages from Sirius by other enigmatic contact characters such as Paul Laffoley, Grant Morrison, Sun Ra, UFO cults, and ancient civilizations such as the Dogon.)
[Update] Apparently, other members of ARAMCHEK are speaking out:
Altered States of Reading (Part 1): VALIS, Vallee, and Vaal at The Nightshirt blog is another amazing article I must insist on before even fully embarking on my own. Here’s some points that caught me in a loop of my own blogging (as well as mentioning the Secret Sun; Eric Wargo covers Kirby as well as the Archons of Star Trek.) Below is an excerpt:
In his A Life of Philip K Dick: The Man Who Remembered the Future, Peake lists numerous other cases in which Dick seems to have precognized events in his own life. Although some of these cases can certainly be explained as the writer unconsciously fulfilling his own myth after the fact, others are uncanny and highly suggestive of something paranormal. I absolutely agree with Peake that Dick had been precognizing his own future his whole life, possibly even visiting his past self in dreams. Dick saw it this way too, and his Exegesis is a massive investigation of the implications of such autobiographical time loops for our understanding of causality and consciousness, one of the most mind-blowing books of our time.
That Dick was channeling his own future, particularly when he was absorbed in frenetically setting words to page, should not surprise us at all. Psi seems to emerge especially in “flow” states of skilled engagement. Whenever you are really cooking at whatever it is you are most skilled at and enjoy, that’s when (albeit unbenownst to you) you will be most tapped into the precognitive signal channel I have called “prophetic jouissance” and which traditionally has just been called “the muse.” Among literary types, precognition seems to uniquely characterize frenetic genre writers, people compelled to bust their asses in the “trash stratum” just to make ends meet.
Dick is only the most famous example. The alcoholic, depressed, and impoverished sea adventure writer Morgan Robertson precognized not only the sinking of the Titanic 14 years before it occurred but also the Japanese sneak attack on the U.S. Navy in Hawaii and the invention of radar. Comics genius Jack Kirby, as Chris Knowles has described on his blog, saw and described the “face on mars” 17 years before it was photographed by the Viking orbiters. Knowles has found other similar cases in Kirby’s works.
It seems (as Knowles suggests) that the less self-conscious of being “respectably literary” a writer or artist is, and the faster he produces, the more uncanny prophecies emerge “automatically” from his pen or typewriter. Inspiration, I am convinced, is real, authentic psi. Although Rick Strassman has linked prophecy to DMT and the pineal gland (the usual ‘unitarian’ wishful thinking that goes back to Descartes and possibly the ancient world), I foretell that a future neuropsychology of psi will concentrate on dopamine and the dopaminergic circuits of the reward system, since dopamine is really the neurotransmitter most associated with anticipatory signals. Appropriately enough in Dick’s case and probably lots of other under-the-gun genre writers, it is stimulants like amphetamines and even coffee that most directly boost dopamine and thus frenetic anticipatory jouissance, not hallucinogens.
We live in a vast precognitive soup, and at least some artists seem to draw not only from past influences but also from their own future timelines, precognizing their own books they have yet to write as well as books by others they have yet to read. Dick’s hypnagogic visions in 1974 notably included many unread or nonexistent books and galley proofs of what could have been his own future books or books by others in progress. A future “map of precognitive misreading” should thus extend Harold Bloom’s critical theory (The Anxiety of Influence) and explore the role of psi in literary/artistic and even scientific creation. It would require, partly, a better-developed theory of precognition in creative and social networks: Ideas may diffuse among contemporaries precognitively, through future sharings and convergences. In other words, people who have never met (yet) may share ideas, not via telepathy, but by precognizing their future interactions in the flesh or, more likely, the future encountering of their exciting ideas in print. Artists may be reading each other precognitively and borrowing each others most creative ideas, and preempting them, via a vast unconscious psi internet that only a few (including Knowles) have begun to explore […]
I wrote a few months ago about a precognitive dream I had related to a 1967 Star Trek episode called “The Apple,” about an ancient planetary computer named Vaal, which keeps the primitive humanoids who feed and service it in a state of ignorance and innocence. “The Apple” was typical of many Star Trek episodes that had a Gnostic theme: Some computer or other controlling demigod always seemed to be keeping the locals in a state of ignorance or slavery until the Enterprise crew arrived and liberated them. In fact, Max Simon Ehrlich’s original screenplay for “The Apple” was seen as so unoriginal and so specifically similar to the episode “Return of the Archons,” also about a computer ideologically regulating a planet’s inhabitants, that Gene L. Coon subjected it to a major revision to make it more distinct.
>In the episode, Vaal (who appears as a big reptilian stone head) communicates to his elect, the leader of the humanoids named Akuta, via transmissions beamed to small antennae implanted behind his ears—in other words, Vaal is a vast, active, and even “living” (since he seems to require periodic offerings of fruit as fuel), intelligent control system, who exerts his influence by manipulating the thoughts and beliefs of the planet’s “innocent” inhabitants.
Dick was like a sponge soaking up pop culture, and no stranger to cryptomnesia. Paul Rydeen notes likely influences in VALIS of Scientology, of Robert Temple’s The Sirius Mystery (which seems to have deflected the origins of VALIS from Formalhaut, in Radio Free Albemuth, to Sirius in VALIS), and the Star Trek episode “Break and Circuses.” The latter, about a basically 20th-century planet where Rome never fell, seems like it could have wormed its way into Dick’s ancient Rome visions/experiences (although ironically, this and many Star Trek alternative history episodes were no doubt influenced in turn by Dick’s own Man in the High Castle). It is entirely possible that Dick could have also seen “The Apple,” either when it first aired or, as I did, in endless weekday afternoon reruns during the mid-1970s, and been subconsciously influenced by it, morphing his own paranoid/Gnostic theory of a higher planetary control system into VALIS.
Last night I experienced my own Aramcheck download phenomenon. This came five days after a sleep paralysis experience, and one day after seeing Chelsea Wolfe live and being touched by her sleepy earth-mother dream-time magick. Her last album, Abyss, is about sleep paralysis. The mystery of it, and the dark shadowy figures which accompany the phenomenon are explored in this interview.
Of course, it could simply be my subconscious mind trying to come to terms with all this blog material I’ve been reading for the past week. However, the contents of the “download” were still interesting enough to me to repeat here. Mostly through flashes of images and ideas, I received information about the Black Knight satellite—and a number of other “space debris”—being the kind of satellites that can manipulate the consciousness software of individuals and influence entire currents of reality on our planet. Similar perhaps to John C Lily’s Earth Coincidence Control Office and PKD’s Vast Active Living Intelligence System, and RAW and Burroughs’ experience with the 23 enigma, as well as Vallee and Puthoff. Synchronicity may be the key to this matrix thing we keep calling the “power of the universe” or a simulation, or whatever physicists are throwing around this week as authoritative conjecture on the nature of our reality. The types of things magical practice has the tools for exploring. This is most immediately understood through the concept of Aramchek, but why does there have to be these individuals, these proverbial rebels? Well, I think that answer is two fold. For the sake of consistency, Philip K. Dick’s Black Iron Prison is one, and two is Gnosticism. Or, they are one and the same? There needs to be the struggle between what becomes understood as good or evil in the moment.
Now my focus at this juncture is not to pin down anything about the so called archons. Smarter and more careful wordsmiths have done this quite extensively and quite well. So much so that I reread this material over and over as a constant beacon of light in all my research. My focus for now is to get you questioning:
- Do aliens control these ancient mind manipulating satellites?
- Does this matrix and it’s consciousness software have anything to do with space itself, as posed by other Star Trek episodes like Return of the Archons
If aliens can beam us messages, wouldn’t that become the human scientific priority?
And then I enter a whole new chapter in thinking. Is the nuts-and-bolts UFO field and physical abduction a manifestation of phenomenon that constitute a large distraction from the idea that the aliens simply want to chat, or that the largest missing puzzle piece does in fact lie in the realm of PSI research, and it’s relation to the alien intelligences?
Where do I come up with this shit? Well, I’m thinking about everything you’ve read so far about alien downloads from giant 13,000 year old somethings hovering above our ionosphere. I’m thinking about alien downloads from Sirius B, Russian psychics acquiring blueprints for UFO technology for the Nazis, Rendlesham Forest where a man touched a UFO and received pages of binary code (details below). I’m thinking about the richest people in America’s interest in spiritualism and how it got Kennedy killed and Star Trek fired up. And I keep thinking, just what the hell are we really dealing with? From Tesla to Laffoley, don’t we have a very human equation to examine more closely before worrying about the shiny enigma in the sky?
Here’s a taste, but after this you can head over there and read the whole thing:
This article will look at some of the similarities between the contact experiences of two American writers, Philip K Dick and Robert Anton Wilson. In the 1973-1974 time frame, both would have unusual experiences that they thought could be contact with an extraterrestrial civilization. Or some undefinable something that wanted them to think it was extraterrestrial. And as incredible as it sounds, some of their experiences are confirmed by other people, and include verified transmission of knowledge that it seems they could not have obtained from any human source. We will also look very briefly at some other possibly related contact experiences involving musician and cultural icon John Lennon, researcher into human-dolphin communication and consciousness Dr. John Lilly and the Swiss scientist and inventor of LSD Dr. Albert Hofmann.
NOTE: William Burroughs first told Robert Anton Wilson about the “23 Enigma”. Wilson and Kerry Thornley incorporated it into their ideas and created the related concept of the Discordian Law of Fives (2+3=5). The number 23 and the numbers 2 & 3 & 5 recur at multiple points in this article. In most cases I do not note them but the interested reader may wish to note how many times they recur and if it is more than expected by chance. – Pulling the Cosmic Trigger: The Contact Experiences of Philip K. Dick and Robert Anton Wilson by AK Wilks
Before continuing I would suggest watching the Philip K. Dick adaptation, Radio Free Albemuth, an independent film. And for those who don’t have the time:
So, what we are getting at here is a few things. The first of which may be the least odd, but it’s this idea that there’s some giant floating mysterious thing in space, orbiting the Earth, and beaming messages to certain individuals who then must relay their message to the rest of humanity. These people range from Tesla to Robert Anton Wilson, and may somehow be closely tied with an intelligence from Sirius B. Back to the article:
In 1980 Philip K. Dick published what many believe to be his magnum opus, VALIS. VALIS is an almost autobiographical novel, wherein he detailed many of the strange and paranormal experiences he had over his lifetime (up to that point, obviously). In that book he detailed an event that occurred on February 20, 1974 at his home in Chicago, Illinois. He received a delivery at the hands of a beautiful young woman who wore a gold necklace with an odd fish-shaped pendant. Dick recounted that the sun glinted off of the pendant, which caused what he called a ‘pink beam’ that penetrated his eye and imparted untold wisdom in the blink of an eye.
Dick claimed that this ‘pink beam’, which he claimed to have experienced on multiple occasions, was a transformative event in his life, and though most saw it as an hallucination, he used the experience, referred to as 2-3-74, as inspiration for the VALIS trilogy.
There are a great many people who believe that the origin of that ‘pink beam’ was in fact, the Black Knight satellite, associating the ‘pink beam’ with the redish-pink colour of the satellite. It’s fairly well known that certain academics view VALIS as a result of comments made by Dick in his exegesis, as a sort of cipher key, needed to decode the true meaning behind Dick’s ten most important works, which are known as the ‘meta-novel’. Those works are: Eye in the Sky, Time Out of Joint, The Man in the High Castle, The Game Players of Titan, Martian Time Slip, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, UBIK, and A Maze of Death.
The fact that Eye in the Sky was written just three years before Black Knight was discovered, suggests to some that Dick was the recipient of otherworldly communication, possibly from a civilization hailing from the Epsilon Boötis star system. Mysterious Universe: The Black Knight Satellite, Bracewell Probes, and Philip K.Dick
The Black Knight satellite is weird enough. The fact that it sometimes resembles Jesus Christ crucified, mirroring the cover of PKD’s VALIS novel is probably the weirdest notion I’m gonna run past you in this post, so I just wanted to get that out the way now:
What Do We Know about the Black Knight
A day after I post an article about a new video of Russia’s Tesla Tower, other videos relating to Nikola Tesla began popping up. These concern the Black Knight Satellite whose signals Tesla claimed to have picked up in 1899, long before Sputnik and NASA. Later signals were decoded by a ham radio operator and revealed information indicating the satellite arrived from another star system 13,000 years ago to monitor Earth. Is the Black Knight Satellite showing some interest in Russia’s Tesla Tower?
In 1899, Nikola Tesla picked up unusual signals from an unknown source on his high-voltage receiver in Colorado Springs which he speculated were “intelligently controlled signals” that originated “from another world.” Astronomers have reported picking up similar radio signals since the 1930s and Dr. Lincoln La Paz of the University of New Mexico sighted the possible source in Earth orbit in1953. The U.S. Department of Defense commissioned astronomer Clyde Tombaugh to look for it. A famous article about the Black Knight was published in both the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner on May 14th 1954. At that time, there were no man-made objects in Earth orbit … that we know of. – Mysterious Universe: Black Knight Satellite Interest Mysteriously Increasing
“Recently a series of radio messages was heard coming from outer space. The transmission was not continuous, but cut by pauses into pieces which could be taken as units, for they were repeated over and over again. The pauses show here as punctuation. The various combination have been represented by letters of the alphabet, so that the messages can be written down. Each message except the first is given here only once. The serial number of the messages has been supplied for each reference.”-NSA.com pdf
