Who the Hell put Teflon on Time? Part 2 of 2

by Rev. David Strickler

(SCN Editors Note: updated draft Oct 14, 2015. Whew! 🙄 )

There is an amazing event taking place that is affecting the manifest universe on a multitude of levels unbeknownst to the masses of humanity, that scientifically as well as spiritually explains the erratic behaviors that are increasingly being exhibited, the unrest, the feeling that time is slipping away like a runaway mine car, causing people to shake their heads and question their sanity.  The ‘unseen’ factors fall into a complex domain, but are summed up into one huge sphere called the SUN.  The Sun is THE axis of time within the confines of our solar system and especially the Earth. Yes, the Sun. What’s the matter, cat got your tongue?  Perhaps you think you are an individual whose life isn’t dependent on such considerations, since you suffer under the personal delusion that you exist independently of nature:  Boo!

In the framework of my understanding, within esoteric knowledge passed from teacher to student, some of which isn’t for public consumption but part of what I may elucidate upon deals with the consciousness of the Sun.  The Sun is a massive factor of timekeeping in our Solar System.  Changes occurring from the electromagnetic patterns of output from the Sun can, in fact, alter the perceptual faculties of our brain and nervous system by influencing our hormonal productions.  Included in this are the unperceived events of bending or speeding up, as well as compression or decompression of time, causing changes in of what is known as psychological time.  The Sun is the master timekeeper and clock within the container of our Solar System that supervises and regulates the flow of time and space that is closest to awareness in our event horizon, while also initiating an exchange of electromagnetic forces within the dance of Earth’s magnetosphere and visual model here on YouTube.

As inhabitants of this physical dimension within one frequency of this time and place, we are experiencing what has been termed Solar Max 24 , projected somewhere between 2013 and 2015, based upon my research. This event is the hottest solar cycle on record and one that presents the usual magnetic reversal of the Sun’s poles .  I suspect many people would not conjecture that the Sun’s heliospheric current sheet would have any impact on planetary, personal or animal behavior.  Reproductive cycles of human beings are regulated by the 28 day cycle of the Sun, the warp of the neutral sheet in the Sun might affect longer term cycles of fertility and infertility of species, as well as the catastrophic cycles on earth, as the ancients could see and measure.  It is no strange wonder that current Human beings are so dependent on stereoscopic seeing.

Where on the mainstream media are the scientists interviewed and explaining, exploring and investigating this major activity that is affecting the Earth and the interactions of its peoples increasingly each and every day?  They are obviously trapped in the Bozone1 Layer of the Beltway Media.  Where is Beltway Media’s coverage as we find ourselves halfway through Solar Max 24 projected somewhere between 2013 and 2015?  How does the SUN influence all of us as we move and interact and why is it so critical to an understanding of what is going on and where we are going? Let’s digress for a moment and begin with Bees and the Sun.


Bees are important in this modern day and in this article due to the influence of the Sun on their reproductive determinism and parts of their animal behavior; this much I may reveal about the meaning of bee symbology in esoteric occult/spiritual tradition; ‘Bees are messengers of the gods.’  The question might be asked, “Why?”  This may be answered in studying the sociological structure of the Bee colony and the resemblance to our instinctual/limbic system behavior in relation to our business-corporate systems and the stench of business ‘Caveat Emptor’ pheromones they exude.

Within the confines of currently discovered history, which is usually a day short and a dollar late, as depicted on Egyptian wall art, Egyptians had the first known artificial beehives around 2500 BCE. There are also many references to and misunderstandings of Bees and how they are used in symbolism, whether within Christianity or writings of the spiritual/occult/hermetically sealed meaning and significance of what the symbolism of Bees interprets. This article is not for arguments of the historical facts or challenges against the creative interpretations, nor for discovery of the symbolic use of Bees (e.g. Mary Magdalene, in Hebrew: מרים המגדלית). Science, however, is in the midst of policy challenges 2 as a natural outcropping of commercial programming/entertainment industry venues. Science develops a narrative for their own profit-making similar to the modern day news-‘personalities’ spewing the ‘Science of their Stupidity in Economics’ cited in Part 1 earlier.

It appears news organizations hate persons, places or things that challenge their slimy-corporate interest viewpoints, preferring instead, the misrepresentation of scientific findings, especially in economics that dispute the cash flows their narratives produce or interfere with their attempt at market influence. COMCAST-NBC, ABC, CBS, CNBC, CNN, et al, news organizations including the salacious and fallacious FOX News et. al., more often than not, make that type of Giant-Sucking Sounds to hoist money from the type of hate and misrepresentation created by half-cocked public pronouncements mischaracterizing substantive findings, as in the example of how the process of Federal Debt-Deficit actually work spoken of in Part 1 of this article. This type of biased media misrepresentation, which must be ubiquitous in media, takes place also in regards to BEES as inferred in this PDF by Angela Jean Cho in “Silence of the Bees”: A Study of Scientific Representation in Media, Spring 2010 3


Another area where behavior of animals might become affected by forms of disorientation and that deals with my next topic which, in my hypothesis, is affecting both Bees and humanity: the geomagnetic North Pole is moving toward Siberia.

Consider visiting these sites to gain a basic understanding of what the impact of the geomagnetic shift might be. This geomagnetic pole shift has been in discussion for many years and is still in the process of being cited online. In The Sleuth Journal’s Earths North Magnetic Pole Moving to Siberia  , they continue a discussion that appears silent in coverage of this topic in the Bozone4 Beltway Media But has been in discussion for many years inside many articles about Earth’s Inconstant Magnetic Field (2003) citing the investigations of Gary A Glatzmaier of Los Alamos Laboratories and Paul H. Roberts of University of California-Los Angeles 5 whose research produced the supercomputer model simulation of the earth’s magnetic reversal. To gain insight into the dynamics that sustain the Earth’s magnetic field and geomagnetic reversals, a must see is the NOVA Documentary named MAGNETIC STORM.6

Inserted from:  http://www.psc.edu/science/glatzmaier.html , ‘When North Goes South’.

Some Scientists also claim that, in their view, there will be little effect when the poles break down before a reversal and move in ‘splotches’ of north and south poles around the globe; I have come across other scientists offering a plausible view of citing the rise of skin cancers.  There is also the issue of the magnetic field of Earth fading prior to pole flips addressed here Frogs Levitate in a Strong Enough Magnetic Field and Earth’s Magnetic Field is Fading, by John Roach in 2004 of September, who also cites Gary Glatzmaier, with further news here by Ellie Zolfagharifard article in Dailymail.com published on 22 June 2015.

Science is having problems drawing partial-truth conclusions based on incomplete understanding or evidence being used, because science is still uncovering its ignorance and I salute Dr. Michio Kaku for any of his statements that have resembled the above in public broadcasts about discoveries in science!  To go further than he did, I think some Science and its scientists  can be perverted; pay for services to get small pieces of research that can be used to promote whatever materialistic behavior that capitalist-manipulated scientific consensual egos find out; then pronounce the great pain residing in their collective emotional-unforgiving consciousness about religion (recall: Hitler’s Scientists).  The source of problems in this world are created by damaged human beings, whether that damage is ignorance, organic, psychological, or some combination of the above, practicing its own unique form of murdering humanity or its ‘I thinks thou dost protest to much’ attitudes toward religion.

As I have stated elsewhere, some of science and its current imbalanced consensual ego is fully puzzled and enamored, hypnotized by time and space, of which they have yet to liberate the finite mind from. Yet the very same hypnotism is manipulated by the employers who feed and hire scientists with private sector funds of the Neo-Feudal Plutocracy of the Billionaire Boys Club, seeking a perverted influence of the long term outcomes of science outside of the necessary academic disciplines through short term profit making.  So yes, I continue questioning where the orthodoxy in science, economics and politics has lost its way and whom at times display a rather bigoted and narrow behavior of consensus.

Thankfully, some of the better consensual Egos in the scientific community are responding appropriately during these times to shout out the current public health crisis arising from the “Teflon on Time” American’s are experiencing: critical sleep deprivation and also sleep disorders permeate the landscape of working America, as cited in National Geographic’s “Sleepless in America” . This won’t be cured by the social engineer taskmasters since part of Business behavior is the result of a lack of sleep producing a toxic brain (e.g., think autointoxication” no bowel or urinary movements) which may be the foundation for spurious amorality of business persons.  Can we expect behavior originating from unchecked greed and the love of money to allow for proper sleep? Can they temporarily suspend the obsessive-compulsive business behavior of profit extracting, regardless of ethics or facts involved to push unrealistic employee productivity?

In the wisdom handed down through the 6000 year tradition, of which I am of the few remaining giving voice to in the order I am of, the Sun is always recognized, without question, as the major influence of physical life and its evolution, how organisms are determined and dependent upon rhythms, modulations and outpourings of the Sun.  Consider the accurate summation of characteristics and personality traits conveyed by thousands of years observation of astrological fluxes, (i.e., Sun, Moon, ascendant positions within the natal chart). Astrology provides a plethora of information with regards to foundations of personality characteristics and temperaments that lays out a fair description of the Sun sign involved. The reproductive cycles of men, women and other animal species (i.e., Bees) are dominated by the cycle of the Sun, which corresponds to the 28 day period of rotation of the Sun as seen from the Earth.

If you wish to investigate some of these concepts further, I would recommend looking into the writings of W. Ross Adey, M.D., known for the “Adey Window” and his serious contributions examining the relationship in electromagnetic field interactions with biological systems. Within the footnote is a sampling of some of his work, along with link to the chapter in Springer Series in Brain Dynamics volume 2, 1989, pp 26 through 42: Cell Membranes, Electromagnetic Fields, and Intercellular Communication7

Sun Neutral Sheet

Another concept to gain some understanding and familiarity with is the inclination of the heliosphere’s ‘neutral sheet’ and solar wind speeds to large decreases of cosmic ray intensity at the Earth: The Inclination of the Heliospheric Neutral Sheet and Cosmic Ray Intensity at the Earth, by Takao Saito & Derek B. Swinson8.

There is a relationship that exists in the coupling of the electromagnetic fields of the Sun, Earth, and the Van Allen belts modifying the Sun’s radiation 9 worth looking into as to how these may be continually affecting our brains and nervous systems.  Although proof toward this concept may be inconclusive, between the three sources given for consideration, I see a potential linkage with the relationship of the Sun from the knowledge I have been awakened into within my oral tradition.  In other words, it appears as though science is finally catching up with the teachings I was immersed into in terms of the interrelationship of the Sun and the Earth, including the Sun’s influence through the mediums of the less than physical astral, etheric regions and then though the physical (mineral, vegetable, animal, man) organisms.  I don’t want to belabor this more than to point a finger in directions that I hear, touch and see in my mind as a hierarchical interrelationship of influences from electromagnetic energy initiated by of the brightest shadow shining in our sky called the Sun, as plasma/solar wind/bow shock pressures the Van Allen Belts creating an interior magnetic symphony inside and surrounding the various layers of the Earth, thus available to being picked up by the electro-chemical nervous systems of mineral, vegetable and animal.

The scientific orthodox of today is lacking in its understanding and skill in its ability, for example, of correct timing of sunspots; the Mayans astronomical and mathematical understanding of the Sun was much better than today’s incomplete scientific ability to project sunspot timing. Each decade has brought new discoveries of knowledge, one scientific funeral at a time that breaks new grounds of understanding in our dynamic relationship within the Solar System between us and the Sun. NASA continues to discover new things about the interrelationship between the Sun and the Earth, such as NASA Discovers New Radiation Belt Around Earth.

Many things, too numerous to cite in such a short space, in looking at the available information NASA has put forward within public context of missions of satellites gathering data about the Sun (i.e., The Solar & Heliospheric Observatory – SOHO ) never known or deduced before along with the new launch of NOAA’s DSCOVER traveling to the neutral gravity point between the Earth and Sun (approx. 1,000,000 miles from Earth) to monitor the Sun and ‘weather on Earth’.  We likely stand to gain further comprehension, understanding about climate change and new depths of knowledge about the electromagnetic/electrical hierarchical interrelationship giving birth to a whole new paradigm of energy and its usage.


Will there be a further revelation of the intricate complexities and hidden systems that exist between the Sun and the Earth (such as flux transfer events) in correlation to our weather?  Likely, yet this begetting insight that may finally open up further comprehensions related to causation in our problems of climate change, aside to from the ‘consensus’ of what mankind is contributing, may have little impact on the type of rational policies required to actually bring about change.  Humanity will be misled once again because of the inertia invested into political leaders by the cheap-ass den of thieves who call themselves the US Chamber of Commerce and its cohorts of white collar crime.  I do believe in climate change, but we are at the infancy of realizing small portions of causality which, when found out, might likely make our impatient generation as a laughing stock.

I also believe that humanity contributes to climate change, and its slow and arduous progress towards clean air, resources of clean water, to provide humanity with the sustainability through time. Correlation is not causation and the apprehension of the causation appears to not be understood or revealing itself at this time.  There is not a clear line of contribution to climate change by mankind’s governments’ stash of Secret Weapon technologies, ongoing development that FOIA will actually reveal, which no one has proof that isn’t happening or contributing to our climate problems (i.e., DARPA10 ).

Bottom line: it is highly clear to me we need clean air and massive solutions for clean drinking water, let alone solutions for water pollution. However, I still see CO2 as an epiphenomena due to the consensual Ego of science inside the scientific orthodoxy’s incomplete knowledge and illusion that disregards the influence and effect of our Sun. This gives some type of usurped consent to the financial sector engineering the demise of humanity through short term profit extraction, while manipulating the consensual Egos within various disciplines in the Orthodoxy of the Scientific, Political and Psychological leaders in the communication structures inside nation of the world.

Take for example, the likelihood that President Barack Obama’s political glossolalia called TPP, other than being anathema to a representative republic and allowing Congress to skip their chores, may turn out to be the biggest lie his administration; that the lying sacks of disingenuous shit on the US Chamber of Commerce successfully suckered him into it, comparative to the administration and financial sector suckering of President Bill Clinton’s harmful Balanced Budget and signing away the last of Glass-Steagall11

Being put into place by the financial forces that manipulate the salaries and funding in all areas, Science may be the new mask of authority that will refuse to be questioned at some point while still lacking a cohesive understanding of humanity and the nature of human consciousness.  Their behavior is bought off through this type of market manipulation targeting their peculiar Achilles heel of their consensual Ego.  Human beings in science inside these types of models would likely miserably fail the humanity they claim to stand by.

Sometimes I feel that, what the Hell, let the bestial financial forces inherit this Earth.  Many, at least in my view of humanity, are/will be transcending into another dimension far better than the nut house found in this primeval deviation, since technically the Aquarian Age cannot take place ON Earth and yes, this is a cryptic and intentionally metaphorical statement.

But I also see many souls in humanity that will be used as the fodder of those who refuse to accept the Great Rabbi Yeheshuah’s (Jesus Christ) enunciation, as he drew from his deep cognizant, cosmic and personal relationship with the Torah, when he exclaimed in Matthew 26:11 to his apostles and disciples, the synopsis of the Torah passage, “The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.”12

Humanity as we know it is quietly slipping away into the future; there remains a fair amount of uncertainty as to which probabilities the whole or parts of humanity will find themselves. Part of humanity can end up on one of the Earth probabilities and the other part of humanity on another Earth probability, quite divorced from its prior environment.  The parasitic financial Eugenics practiced by the one branch of the Business Illuminati, an abuse of a term misapplied to these bloodsucking vampire squid, coating themselves in Teflon while they continue to deploy packages of financial euthanasia through their modern form of unseen financial warfare. By distributed through channels of marketing and consumerism intended to force a culling, so they can suck up all the remaining cash streams, all under the guise of Capitalism while practicing the policies of British Rentier Free-Trade13 that our Founding Fathers fought against.  These types utilize the news/media centers of influence who are crafty at conjuring an image of their inferior views of this world that many people accept due to fear; a horrendous mental construct borne in the Beastly likeness, evil and conflated view of themselves.

The Teflon (do not stick to your views that say something is wrong) you feel is real, more realistic than the banana peel put there for you to prevent you from having a grip on what is going on in this Nation or the world.  These perverted, swollen and sterile individuals will continue to steal and privatize the pavement and want you and everyone who disagrees with them to go to Hell, get off their planet, while they masturbate with their entitlement program in this age of money derived by Rentier Capitalism, whether found in carried interest, capital gains, death tax or elsewhere…They will even use behavioral tactics to purchase scientists whose hypothesis can be twisted by Ego manipulation to fit their money grabbing agendas because they suffer from fear of uncertainty.

So we are in a transition and the Teflon that time appears currently coated with will keep sanity slip siding away14, unless you have the proper knowledge to assist you through what is true and what is false in this time period of intentional misinformation, disinformation and disorientation, as the corrupt nature of all Institutions is challenged by the Public.  Just look at Greece, the grand social experiment of ripping people off in order to undermine nation sovereignty. So never mind the teflon coating Germany received on their war debt and the their resulting debt forgiveness in 1947. Why would they deprive Greece of any Teflon on their debts?

If nothing more, watch your back, and get off your ass and VOTE, never mind the limited options provided.

Who the Hell put Teflon on Time? — pt 1of 2

by Reverend David Strickler

Greetings and welcome back to Spiritual Climate Newsletter.

It is mid point of time in the current decade here in a profit-censored United States of America and the behavior resulting from monetary illiteracy is being intentionally promoted and sustained by corporations and commercial agendas creating a miasma of engineered confusion, fear and loss of time. So, who the Hell put teflon on time?

In some ways, it has been a long hiatus with many new experiences through my organism’s survival of a stroke and the various coping strategies that I use in dealing with the resulting effects of brain injury. Sometimes, dealing with the ongoing brain injury involved is as if I am living in the end of the story “2001: A Space Odyssey”; various stages of looking back and seeing oneself as one was, although in my version I also include the now and the future being generated out of the event horizon of this now.

Herein this article is my first written commentary in seven years, with the new publication of Spiritual Climate Newsletter in 2015, I am attempting to cover a few topics and weave them together. My hope is, that by interweaving the components of this article (e.g., time/politics, time/relationships, time/money, time/world, time/humanity), that somewhere nearing the end of this article in Part 2, it will be a satisfying reader’s experience of understanding where these topics are going. This Part 1 article will either be dashingly successful on one side of the scale OR smashingly missing the mark (failure) or somewhere in between, initiating this window view I am pointing toward.

This being said, and taking into consideration some of the neural/cognitive train wreck I still experience, which, on a practical level is probably a kindred experience encountered by most if not all who are aware they have had a stroke, whose life is sometimes experienced as a state of non-stick Teflon of not being able to grasp things from point A to point B, let alone remember what I ate for breakfast or lunch up to forgetting whatever reason why I am dealing with conditions at hand. Of late, I would swear that humanity’s behavior resembles a stroke after going around galactic center (Sagittarius A*: pronounced “Sagittarius A-star”, standard abbreviation Sgr A*), somewhat of a bending, compression, slippage, decompression of time in our experience: nothing sticks to it and everything keeps sliding faster and faster – watch out for that black hole!

It begs a question, and this has nothing to do with a bear or rabbit: are you aware of what does and doesn’t stick to you?

Is it possible that clever human forces have put Teflon on internal parts you formerly used to protect yourself from ‘forces’ seeking access to your desires, while disarming your rejection defenses which protect you from being ‘used?’ Is it also possible for these clever human forces to reach out with their tentacles and get their narrative to stick to you, in order to draw your attention away, to veil, parts of a larger set of facts that they benefit from you not hearing or seeing, perhaps to gain some form of policy, rule or law written to legally extort, extract and profit from you? Could these clever human forces be preventing your recognition of their attempt at gerrymandered, emotional-persuasion to control what they want to stick to you, so you rally in support of an artificially designed consensus of giving away your earned benefits, your property, your freedom and even more of your time?

Do you have the awareness that some of the source for your agitation, anger, and frustration could be a result the wearing down of the personal Teflon formerly used by you to protect the sensitivity of your awareness that either smells the bull-crap or sees/hears that something is intentionally being left out, so that you intentionally/unintentionally give up monitoring your usual range of discernment (bait n switch)? If so, are you then to be held responsible for the consequences of getting stuck on narratives that exploit your inability to change circumstances, by allowing those who have written the narrative, whether they be ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council), your Boss, the Corporation you are employed by, to exploit your sense of normalcy and balance, while inhibiting your ability to seek higher expectations and better outcomes?

Stick around! There are two parts to this commentary exploring a bit of this and more, with this first part being published in this first 2015 opening edition of SPIRITUAL CLIMATE NEWSLETTER, Winter/Spring Edition, and then Part 2 of this commentary being published in the next edition.

Seven years ago in December 2014, some difficult decisions had to be made and the publication of SPIRITUAL CLIMATE NEWSLETTER was temporarily paused. Many simple and complex issues involving the authors and contributors of this newsletter in their professional and personal lives came to the forefront. Contributing to this were health issues, family issues, moving issues, but most specifically, the unseen ratcheting up of productivity requirements of those of us contributing authors of this newsletter in their employment, both before and after the wondrous financial crisis brought about by unchecked white-collar incentivized fraud happening (and still is) in the investment banking system of Wall Street. So, what appeared and felt to be genuine limitations of time, we had a ‘hard time’ sticking to any form of publishing schedule of SPIRITUAL CLIMATE NEWSLETTER.

Certainly, many readers can relate to the squeezing demands being imposed upon time happening away from work, if any time can be found at all. Increasing demands of further output in the workplace contribute to restricting time spent with family, children and relationships, all without any healthy recourse. It appears to be a common malady that middle class Americans are being squeezed into changes that they didn’t VOTE for (bait-n-switch arguments from the  Science of the Economic Stupid used by i.e., Gov. Scott Walker and Gov. Chris Christie), or insane rulings such as money-equals-speech, the censoring of unions and the ‘middle class’ being forced to give up more time, more money, more of limited resources and earnings at the behest of the Rentier Millionaire/Billionaire Boys Club,  using their weaves to demand that we Submit to their dictates to control  our time through demanding ever increasing profits under the dogma of shareholder value and innovation. Even the time for Labor-Unions has been censored as Labor is denied a voice in this Nation as compared to allowing the voice of Corporatism sounded through its arrogant child named – CONGRESS, Inc. and proudly held up by those in the SCOTUS Majority decision called Citizens United, both of whom suck on the Financial Sector.


As if we came into this life to do business; business is not Metaphysics. It is my opinion that those in the SCOTUS Majority decision who decided to ass-kiss Citizens United, and support the purely obtuse, foul-smelling, objectionable bull-crap named “money-equals-speech” psychosis are deeply disturbed individuals who should seriously undergo neuropsychiatric evaluation. If they won’t resign their bench in quiet, they should be impeached as quickly as possible. I would even let them have their retirement, provided proof of they are not financially ‘kept’, as in an old cliché ‘a kept woman.’

America has become a highly profitable, unethical cottage industry for CEO’s and Corporations, leveraging the insanity of an extreme version of the Protestant work ethic (or the Puritan work ethic) that American’s have been brainwashed by and supplanting it with a usurped version of ‘American Exceptionalism’ (i.e., “live to work” instead of “work to live”) without questioning its dubious parentage. This ploy is destroying the fabric of genuine dialogue, while stressing the normal working families, whether couples, singles, or families with one or both parents working to maintain a roof over the heads of their children, food to eat, and money for privatized utilities. What happens if your child gets sick? Do you get fired, demoted or given a hard time? The strain on personal precious resources of time and space, with increasing demands of a 14+ hour work day are intentionally imposed to keep adults suggestible (through lack of sleep) to a pseudo-authority transplanted from mom and dad into a ‘Corporate mommy and daddy-hood’ enunciation of austerity.

Before going further, I feel I must make an important point! If you think I have anything against work or creating widgets, you will likely need to consider ~snorting copious amounts of Exlax~; you are completely incorrect in your interpretation of that which I have thus far presented and could be lacking in a fuller comprehension of American economic history, or perhaps you are living under some disingenuous rock of reason in your imagination. Why is this an important point to draw attention to this at this juncture? If, in the personal one- room movie theater of your mind you are arguing a view that stealing time from overworked adults is healthy for a Nation and its people, then your personal delusions, be they generated by emotional, money or a variety of belief systems will prevent you from hearing some of the following topics and facts this commentary is going to present. The likelihood though, is that you do relate to some aspect of that which I have cited thus far, so it is not your contrived perception or workability of available time, it is instead likely, a derived Reality that many are experiencing to some degree or another and God has nothing to do with it.

In many families there are two working adults, each averaging a 68-hour work week per working adult to earn a living wage 1. Are we then to expect these adults have adequate time for responsibilities and time to understand political positions, insurance in any shape of its forms, the endless retirement explanations, taxes, the damn remote or accompanying electronic devices, Oh! and their city is being bankrupted and their earned pensions are in process of disappearing due to malicious, ignorant thievery of people like Gov. Chris Christie or Gov. Rick Snyder, Argh! How do you make this damn Android phone work and the now-classic ‘what the hell is wrong with my computer’? Well, (smiling) I said only naming a few common daily occurrences. Oh wait! I almost forgot (I do not have children), having a relationship with their children and understanding why their children’s education consists of only test taking and participating in their children’s school activities? What if your child is sick, or developmentally impaired? What if YOU are ill from the flu? Just reflect for a moment…When was the last time you had a full weekend off or were able to celebrate Christmas or some other holiday without having some aspect of work demanding your attention or time, due to a turn-around shift?

With this intended confusion invading our space, not to mention the plethora of microwave broadcasting through the air and radio waves along with any and all electronic transmission communication signals bombarding our nervous systems and brains, that if we could actually experience visually, we wouldn’t be able to see beyond two feet in front of our faces due to exhaustion. What I am hearing more frequently from people in various sectors I am in communication with, is: 1) “I have no time,” along with 2) “Is someone/something out of their cotton picking minds?” and 3) see number 1. My answer is “Hell yes, and this is what happens when the beasts in the financial sector, seeking to extract profit from the public and private sectors, set the rules for an economy AND their bought politicians who are making policy in the aforesaid sector’s name and bottom line.” It is all engineered! But we don’t have the time and/or make the time to even give it some checkpoint questions in our awareness.

I would argue that this is what happens when financial institutions are given a regulatory oversight into a Nation-State through capitalists turned into oligarchic plutocrats who buy and promote political office holders who are lacking knowledge of economic history replaced by the surfeit of the Black-Scholes gaming theory and then place them within said institutions. This promotes a Confederate (States’ Rights) psychopathy to undermine growth of this Nation, our families within this Nation and our resources in the Nation by re-creating the infamous ‘plantation effect’ in which employers claim their worker’s time as their own property under the guise of global competition, while convincing gullible and/or fragile Americans that they must compete (Trans-Pacific Partnership 2, NAFTA, et al) with workers in China or wherever else in the world – say WTF? The only problem with our institutions are the people running of those institution and selling access to power and selling the power itself because of paid for behavior determined by corporate owned LOBBYISTS.

This is a plausible social engineering feat, even one that a dinosaur of a computer code writer like me would have had the ability to set up a flow chart at age 16. Aspects of this plausibility have been constructed by the forces of greed since that period of my age, to influence the majority of citizens who both do and do not vote. This ongoing engineering is enforced by a sublimation process exerted by the ceaseless hypnotic drumming of 24/7 info-entertainment news paradigm. The mainstream (beltway) media, such as FOX Entertainment-News (we have the best ratings, never mind our intentional lies), providing short-hand version of condensed mental constructs of perceptions that are intentionally to be taken as a perception of reality, which seems real enough to agree with, thereby capitalizing on producing a predictable range of responses to dwindling, limited resources of attention and time the a struggling middle class has available, whereby to exploit those responses and  their trust.

Just add digital coax connection so the rinse-and-repeat action of the description above fosters an implied agreement of consensus that the Beast operatives in the financial and political Corporation-State want as a likely response and outcome to further increase additional burdens to be carried by the Middle Class. Next move is to insure a broad range of reduction in facts of what is truly going on. Then, include further editing of any information resembling truthful information necessary in order to prevent making informed decisions on anything pertinent affecting individual lives up to and including Voting. This is the neutering of good public policy and the election of office holders who would ordinarily construct healthy public policy in the monetary and fiscal areas to benefit ALL citizens, not just the single sided balance sheet mantras that has quadrupled the myopic .01 percent’s share of the country’s wealth in half a century.

But, the biggest gain of all not being spoken of, if anywhere, to my current awareness, is that the Beastly Wall Street Investment Bankers are seeking to intentionally usurp control of the Monetary System, through the purchase of politicians to barker for the required changes to governmental policies, in order to gradually hand over the power of the government and the all too often misunderstood Federal Reserve by completely privatizing it away from all public control or regulation. Next would be to redirect said Monetarily Sovereign government’s exclusive unlimited power to create its sovereign currency and allow the Beasts of Wall Street Banks to take over that function. Wait till you see that form of austerity that Rep. Paul Ryan, in his learned economic ignorance, can’t even image with his anti-American System of Economic philosophy: a shiny new form of modern slavery that the makes the Money Handlers drool for and have sought the power to have, dating back (in recent history) to the murder of Abraham Lincoln, all because of the Greenback and debt free money the Greenback represents, for which, if fully implemented (Lincoln’s Greenback) would have put the bankers in their proper place, just like ICELAND recently had the balls to do; bankers become servants to government and its citizens instead of managing or taking over such as like the happenings here in the U.S.A and preventing a bankers view of world dominance. This Confederate-Constitution Viagra, is likely permeating, at least in my opinion, the nocturnal wet confederate dreams likely occurring in the legal minds of Justice Alito, Justice Scalia and Justice Roberts.

The Middle Class job makers (rich people do not create jobs, they only create capital gains) should have dominant consideration and control in this Nation due to the fact that consumer spending creates income, income creates sales and sales create jobs. Instead, workers experience ratcheting of pay downward or the intentional keeping wages stagnant for over thirty years, while hearing the Wall Street generated explanation stating the blame for said stagnant wages is because middle class adults are suffering from being ‘lazy’, that productivity needs to be increased, or that the middle class is too dependent on government assistance: pick-your-style-of-propaganda narrative. I’d rather be dependent on the power of government; otherwise I would be under the thumb of some type of power wielding an opening of an epigenetic form of Corporate Fascism which redirects attention away from their hypocrisy of Corporate America begging for Government handouts. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, as in the Wizard of Oz!

So the natural focus of the middle class narrows due to pressure in providing basic necessities for themselves and their children, while the ever-increasing demands of time being placed upon them, little time is left for taking into account of any details of they are actually trying to negotiate through or figure out, whether it be how to pay the bills or how to vote in an upcoming election.  They’d have to be a Svengali to realize how much they are being screwed by the Rentier Neoliberal economics that the Hobbesian Bestiality  of the Republicans (mostly, i.e., Sen. Rand Paul, Sen Ted Cruz, Sen. Tom Cotton et al) and some stupid Democrats (fewer) are force feeding the middle class.

What little news manufactured through sleight of hand editing to supposedly assist the “99%” is experienced as a constant pounding into their heads via mainstream media that the Federal Government is Evil and has been on an ongoing orgy of spending, which data shows to be patently false 3. The truth of the matter is that “No Government has wasted money on the scale that the Private Financial Sector has done, in this crisis and the consequences of the crisis.” 4

Yet, the question remains: evil compared to what? An unforgiving set of Wall Street Beast Bankers who want the concept of a debt jubilee erased from the history of the consciousness of citizens, so that it doesn’t matter what rational voice arises from the Public to shout out that mathematics shows debts can never be repaid; that the purveyors of the loans don’t want you to realize the grand pyramid scheme they have developed for the future incarceration of humanity? 5.  With the propaganda that the Hobbesian Beasts are promoting from their refined Black Magic of Advertising to cover up their trail of corruption and legalized extortion of our citizens that privatization yields, coupled with the lethal effectiveness of blindsiding developed by our paid for saintly scientists in behavioral psychology. If for one moment you think Government is useless or evil, then the Beastly Bankers have succeeded in manipulating the fears and desires of your mind.

These Beastly Business Boys want you to Submit, be compliant and complacent, as they willfully infuse the demands of their greedy, cancerous, lust-after-money Souls whose pustulation infects and leeches off the majority of working class families or individuals. They not only want the U.S. Government to give them the power to regulate everyone, but also they themselves want to privatize the public holdings, public jobs, and anything workers have produced, including pension funds, while convincing you with a dance of semantic-prestidigitation to buy ‘the sizzle of their steak’ right there in your distracted, busy mind that is seeking relief, as they physically put a stake right through the heart of your freedom and then refuse, reject, and charge interest for your desires, growth, and liberation.

People need to get a proper grip, an accurate perspective through genuine sources that can demonstrate why what the Beastly Finance & Political Boys say is NOT SO in regards to the National Debt and Deficits; the actual U.S. Monetary system does NOT operate in the way it is mischaracterized and misrepresented by political and contract-paid-to-censor-talking-Barkers in corporate news profit centers such as CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, ABC or NBC or CBS (FOX NEWS is not a News organization (imo) so I will not use them as example). I will criticize CNBC, CNN and MSNBC, since I believe the latter two can be held to higher standards of news broadcast, while CNBC is owned chattel of the investment banks.

FOX NEWS Bill O'Reilly, et al
I have Best Ratings, Never Mind the Lies

For example, there are people who are paid on contractual terms such as Chris Matthews (who has produced high quality of work in historical political writings-opines) or ‘I am a respectable Republican’ Joe Scarborough (who more often than not comes across as “I am god therefore do not even attempt to disagree with me”) of MSNBC, either of whom can be depended upon to constantly mischaracterize and misinform their public, on the nature of how Federal Debt and Deficits function, not unlike smart ass schoolboys who really don’t know what they are talking about NOR will their network, producers or sponsors correct them by providing a counterpoint to the Science of Stupid, Economic Nonsense (i.e., Federal Deficits, Balanced Budget & Federal Debt) they spew. This says what about their Producers (CNN, MSNBC, or NBC, et al) or so called news network agency and the agenda of all sponsors whom they Barker for?

Some lucid people can see through the chimera of their angered responses when guests attempt to talk outside or challenge their “paid for” boundary. Even though I respect Matthews’ political history, he becomes an Archie Bunker of the Science of Stupid Economic Nonsense when it comes to ‘Federal Balanced Budget’/Debt and Deficits like a crackpot who is full of shit. This is then reinforced in the early morning hours with Joe Scarborough, who may be a decent human being and respectable Republican with some political opine, but he too, becomes a crackpot while narrating his producers’(?) NBCs’(?) Science of Stupid Economic Nonsense about how ‘Federal Balanced Budgets’ are needed and how money in the Federal Budget works with debts and deficits, which is entirely full of shit because it is pure falsehood. He gets paid to misrepresent/mischaracterize the actual functioning of US Monetary system and how our money actually works providing a one-sided balance sheet lingo serving the paymasters who employ him. The Moderators on CNN are hardly worth mentioning other than that they are just as bought and paid for to spew complete nonsense about how Federal Deficits & Federal Debt actually function and how ‘Federal Balanced Budgets’ are needed (NOT). Both (News) institutions use advertising payola as incentive for their talking-heads to promote think tanks supporting the censoring economic facts and processes that disagree with the larger corporate economic business agenda of undermining the Nation. And they penalized Brian Williams? What hypocrisy and a joke.

It must be nice to be paid to misinform people; Hell, I know, only the ratings matter. But hey, they are perfect examples of the big chief egos paid to beat on their chest by the Billionaire Peterson Foundation, Koch-brothers, et al. You can depend on the mainstream media to lock you out of what is truly going on, for example, like the advertising/monetizing campaign CNN hosted by giving ISIS way too much time, visibility, and profiting from their audience’s fear.

Genuine answers of how Money actually works coming from rational Economists whom actually advise the Federal Reserve Board (e.g., Dr. Stephanie Kelton 6 ) are intentionally censored out of mainstream media discussions. You wouldn’t even know there are those who can easily and effectively debunk the mainstream economic sales pitch of said news organizations who intentionally censor it from being heard on a regular basis. Here are a few of the economic rock stars from my book for you to explore: Professor Michael Hudson, Dr. William K. Black, and Professor Steve Keen.  And here is one clear example for you, of an uncensored economist speaking to Senators for a few short minutes. You tell me if Professor Mark Blyth’s explanation here (video) sounds close or resembles what you hear coming from MSNBC’s Chris Matthews or Joe Scarborough, or any on the Wall Street-banker-owned CNBC or CNN news cited above.

Thank God for The Real News Network (TRNN) and to their contributors. Without TRNN there would be little if any video source for Americans to gain insight from salient (some cited above) economists and the lucid economists who present sensible, reasoned unedited thought content based on Reality for the American people while silently calling out the mainstream media obfuscation.

We here in the USA need to get a better grip on what is happening to our time and space, we need more time to understand who we are voting for and why. This could be easily accomplished with a National week-long Voter’s Holiday, but instead we get the money-equals-speech psychosis from the Supreme Court of the United States. Teflon or not, time needs to be freed in order to expose the fallacies occurring in the workplace, business practices, and the incentivized fraud. Time needs to be freed in order for us to negotiate our way through this intentional mess. Once the findings are expanded into common awareness and then knowledge, we will be able to see some of the trimmed facts become untrimmed, and heal into further truths that are presently being cleverly excluded from the mainstream media outlets and all the aficionados being paid for by the Billionaire Boys Club, hopefully before the point of no return comes.

The Billionaires have harnessed the black-magic behavioral power of advertising in the 24/7 entertainment news sector to utilize the powerful techniques and advertising’s ability to brainwash and manipulate viewer’s time and space; harnessing any possibility of a viewer’s focus of attention/perception while purchasing a Nation, with the full unknowing compliance of a citizenry lacking insight into the facts and truths of the American System of Economics history, in order to realize why they are being forced to SUBMIT to the demands of the Business Beasts on Wall Street. This is one place where a voice for Labor is essential in equilibrating All constituents voices regarding healthy legislative process to assist a balanced ordering of legislative outcomes pertinent to all, not exclusively to the voice of Corporate Class.

Until then, watch out for the Teflon cleverly being manufactured to coat your time and space unnoticeably moving you to slip away from your families due to living to work. If we are unsuccessful in ‘Getting a grip’ on the demands of this modern life being imposed upon us through lack of awareness on our part, we stand the chance of losing access to the volitional consciousness that enables us to remove the Teflon on time and determine what we want, not what the Beasts want.

Stand up and pursue your life with liberation, freedom and happiness, but VOTE before you are silenced; before SCOTUS’s psychosis of money-equals-speech along with your right to Vote is erased from your use by Mutant Republicans who are promoting our Nation to slide into privatized Corporate oblivion. Remember what our Founders did: “Whole point of American Revolution was to overthrow the Corporate State the British had imposed. 7

Moneyed interests can buy almost any behavior they want in American workers to produce the results they seek whether the effects damage the future of those workers or to damage the Nation those workers are being protected by; Federal powers seek to protect its citizens from enemies both foreign and domestic. Unions are just one of many scapegoats used to redirect your emotional attention in order that imbalanced Corporatism can undermine your liberty. Essentially, we are angry because innately, unconsciously we know we are being bullshitted about how money is being mishandled and thus increasing the expansion of inequality  whether it be income, political inclusion or resources. This is a war to rollback our Republic to a NeoFeudal-bank-rulership version of history: Slavery (see: Michael Hudson, The Insiders Economic Dictionary) and unless we take back control of our time, the problems of inequality are just a beginning.

Gain some understanding so maybe you can prevent your children from slipping on the well-placed Teflon into modern slavery. Remember, Life is Fair, but there are some people who seek to make it unfair for anyone around them.

In Part Two of this commentary we will uncover an even more unseen and unlikely source contributing heavily to the behavioral disturbances.

Spiritual Climate Newsletter DECEMBER 2007 ~ part 1 ~ THE ABSENCE OF CHRISTMAS



By Rev. David Strickler

Crisp and cold ‘twas the evening of the traditional tour of surrounding neighborhoods Christmas light display. I walked outside to meet Goldfern who was graciously piloting the vehicle and chauffeuring all embarking on our seasonal exploration of lighting designs. It really makes for an evening to see the creativity of those who celebrate the Christmas season here in the Southwest where there is no snow with temperatures to remind one of their snowy origins from back east in northern Ohio, at least in my particular history. Without the least warning, an absence had emerged within the horizontal plane.

Horizontal events are activities of response that occur in this 3 dimensional world, what used to be named the mundane world as opposed to the coexisting least recognized vertical plane of consciousness which has at its essence causal properties of Soul, Spirit or Higher functions of beingness within consciousness. Horizontal events as such are not Spiritual events, but are more the shadows that are formed by the physical senses that are a more or less accurate of a response and/or reaction toward the presence of the vertical nature (causal) of consciousness initiated by its realm of Spirit. This Causal is not to be confused with the phenomena of cause and effect within the mundane physical world.

The Solar plexus chakra, which in the human nervous system is reflected in the region known as the abdominal brain or as some prefer to call it, the living instinctual mind, is where ‘gut reactions’ seem to swallow the attention that our heads are able to focus and thereby blot out any reasoning or higher thought functions of the brain temporarily. This is the arena within that part of the function of our personality and human ego uses to assume protective custody of our physical bodies by it remarkable power of attention limitation. This is a rough description of the arena of Horizontal consciousness. In some circles we see this area of consciousness well exposed by fixations of sexual activity, as an example, in politics where political commentary seems to predominate at times in primarily dialog about genital issues: looks, sexual preference, fidelity and the rest of the useless rot of diatribe by shallow people.

It is a luxury for me, to have someone drive, since I can’t drive for long periods of time due to the limitations created by the ongoing presence of visual and auditory disturbance from my stroke. I relish being able to sit in the car, converse with friends, laugh and without failure always move inward into a process of contemplation which ignites my level of discernment to my surrounding environment for receptivity and analysis. My ongoing summation of this year’s contemplative perusal always shows in the ghost of Christmas present and this year is by no means an exception, other than I am going to share a part of it with you this holiday, wherein in most years I do not.

Absence is the closest word to describe this season of articulation emerging from the horizontal plane of human consciousness, barren and void of some kind of indescribable quality usually present within human consciousness as it expresses itself on the physical plane. To put it simply, something is missing and it is being made so blaringly evident by the paradoxical description of the overwhelming ‘presence’ and lack; absence. One fair way to describe this absence is in using the Platonic cave as a model to lend it substance for the possibility of understanding. The unenlightened horizontal person’s mind is locked in the cave of Plato, watching the shadows being cast on the walls of the cave and mistaking the shadows for reality instead of a perception which points toward that which casts the shadows.

But here I must diverge in order to show events that promulgate this adherence to creating mass chaos in order to give you some means to apprehend what this absence is or is not and that brings us to 83-161 A.D. of Ptolemaic theory and Claudius Ptolemy’s intentional or unintentional hoax. Ptolemy got caught in those perceptions and mistook them for reality and used linear mathematics and flawed approach with statistical analysis to convince himself and others as to prove that the Sun revolved around the earth. This demonstration of the incompetence of the statistical method employed for mapping observations of the orbits, by Ptolemy and later Copernicus is still showing up redressed as incomplete, simplistic modern global warming theories and you can tell that I derive my view by those scientists in the tens of thousands of dissenting against the anthropogenic Co2 theory and that consensus is not science. 

The Oregon Petition is one such gathering of dissent; Signed by more than 19,000 professional persons including 2,660 physicists, geophysicists, climatologists, meteorologists, oceanographers and environmental scientists, and 5,017 scientists from other disciplines, includes, inter alia, the statement; “Not only has the global warming hypothesis failed the experimental test; it is theoretically flawed as well”. The Peer Reviewed research paper provided in the next link is entitled:  Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide This is a “review of the research literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th Century have produced no deleterious effects upon global weather, climate, or temperature. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased plant growth rates. Predictions of harmful climatic effects due to future increases in minor greenhouse gases like CO2 are in error and do not conform to current experimental knowledge.” (re: http://www.oism.org/pproject/ ). Here is a video presentation of: Dr. Noah Robinson, Ph.D. Chemistry, California Institute of Technology, Professor, Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine on The Global Warming Myth.

In the words of Georg W. Kreutzberg, the former Director of the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried, Germany, “Preventing scientific misconduct is the responsibility of all scientists.” This admonition should be branded onto Economic Speculative Theorists by Economic Scientists as well. Complex systems described by a linear mathematics in a non-linear universe usually retain the vesture of my skeptical inquiries and include a caveat that science is not peer review (Albert Einstein being a case in point, re: Physical Review, 1936), alongside the caution that science is not ‘statistics’.

“Mother Nature simply operates at a level of complexity that is, at this point, beyond the mastery of mere mortals (such as scientists) and the tools available to us. As my high-school physics teacher admonished us in those we-shall-conquer-the-world-with-a-slide-rule days, “Begin all of your scientific pronouncements with ‘At our present level of ignorance, we think we know . . .’ Good advice for the IPCC, and all of us.” ~ John R Christy is Professor and Director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama, Huntsville, US. He has contributed to all four major IPCC assessments, including acting as a Lead Author in 2001 and a Contributing Author in 2007.

The aroma of human ignorance in history as it repeats itself through the gambling institutions and betting matrices used by current Hedge Funds and Private Equity Firms to affirm the existence of almost anything – as long as the Black-Scholes Derivative formula for which Robert Merton and Myron C. Scholes won the Nobel Prize for economics, in 1997, confirms any form of phantasmagoric financial manifestation that could produce cash from large scale ‘betting’. This ‘Las Vegas Casino Style’ appears to have emerged from the work of Robert Merton, PH.D. In 1973 Merton published a paper, “The Theory of Rational Options Pricing,” in the Bell Journal of Economics and Management can adroitly snatch any cash flow and produce double digit short term yields.  Has science, as in other fields, succumbed to ‘newspeak’ by allowing themselves to be funded by nothing more than modern day bookies disguised as investment gamblers called Hedge Funds and Private Equity firms?

It would be amiss to not mention prior individuals which consummately cultivated the current field of mathematical finance wherein a interwoven dance of gaming theory, information theory and statistical probability theory (think—Ptolemy, Copernicus, anthropogenic Co2 is the sole cause of global warming) with the help of such earlier bastions of human dialog as Bertrand Russell, Norbert Wiener, and John von Neumann and other such applied lunacy being allowed to damage and terrorize the lives of the citizens of this nation as well as the health of our great nation and the world as is seen in the well engineered subprime loan crisis.  My bet is the the CDP (carbon disclosure project) is the great Hedge Fund/Private Equity Firm hiring quantz to create ‘virtual machinery’ and ‘virtual jobs’ to foster agreement reality through a coordinating secretariat for institutional investors with a combined $41 trillion of assets under management. Therein is your clue for the direct interwoven dance of gaming theory, information theory and statistical probability theory.  The amount of assets under management will cause affirmation some form of certainty toward anthropogenic Co2 as being the sole cause of global warming, never mind the science.  Absence of sanity.  My bet is that 41 Trillion dollars controls what type of policy is gambled on and engineered into public consent-whether or not it is true. 

Please pay very close attention to my next statement: not all Hedge Funds or Private Equity Firms nor the people who work or own them are Economic Terrorists or are corrupt; what I am pointing toward is the existence within this Republic of corrupt individuals from all walks of life in such area as Religious, Political or Business who don’t give a second thought creating damage through unscrupulous profiteering and the expropriation of the citizens of this great nation. That being stated, I find it hard to accept Alan Greenspan’s denial that he couldn’t see the subprime loan debacle coming, when the fact of the matter that any self respecting economist functioning on the evidence of economic history (such as Dr. Michael Hudson) instead of Wall Street supported ‘Walt Disney-ish’ Speculative Theory of Economics as taught by the good-old-boys unit at the University of Chicago school of Economic (non) thought. By the way, where was any evidence of oversight and participation with insight toward regulatory effort from any responsible politician’s years before this Highly Visible collapse occurred?

‘The notion that the economy could regulate itself Hamilton called a ‘wild speculative paradox.”— The Cycles of American History, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., Houghton Mifflin Company, 1986, p. 220-221.

It is revealing to hear such lunacy as the ‘market can regulate itself’ when according to economists who use the evidence prevailing in economic history know that to be false. It appears as though flights of fancy are still the functional norm and explication from some of the mouths of politicians, could this be a political form of Oxycotin? In my opinion and view, the subprime loan debacle and the philosophical cancer it represents spreading world wide is a financially engineered act of economic terrorism by bad apples whose behavior is predictable when they get support of their fantasy in being unregulated. These videos: Hedge Funds – Paul Solman, Voice of America on Hedge Funds and Adam Hewison on SEC Rule Change should give you the basic operational understanding of how Hedge Funds and Private Equity Firms work in the market place. I would also recommend reading Bill Fleckenstein’s Contrarian Chronicles.

This brings me to the great absence of sanity in our current human experience largely in part, in my view, due to the absence of genuine connectivity to human reality between people and the spiritual principles that are removed from a blocked view when such connectivity is brought into the realm of human action. Truth is not subjective—human beings may be subjective in their perception and cognition of a truth. Truth is absolute and human subjectivity is absolutely prone to misperception.

Human connectivity is coming at odds (no pun intended) with mathematical matrices designed to quantify all human activity and interaction as a monetary value. No matter how trite this flawed ideology is it remains a force to be reckoned with as a splinter or a muscle spasm making its presence known in the form of intense pain to justify the monetary goals of whatever individual or form of corporatism and institution has as its objective.

The absence of sanity is the presence I spoke of in the opening of my commentary I see in part is making itself known in the world of our human experience and conditions. Our senses as human beings recognize this absence somewhat like a huge wall blocking the source of light that creates the shadows on the Platonic cave wall of our senses.

From a Spiritual standpoint there is now shining a light from the vertical column of our consciousness coming directly from its source and this light is so brilliant that it cannot be seen with our ordinary senses, just as the universal principle of gravity cannot be “seen” directly by the senses. This spiritual light is so bright it renders any landscape within the human internal experience absent of any shadows or images and in the unenlightened individual the senses will create an affect (shadow) to the best of its ability; the summation of an ongoing growing sensation of something missing, something absent, something very wrong. What is wrong is the absence of true human encounter, touch, and dialogue in a one on one physical experience being replaced instead by synthetic forms of virtual reality and communication.

The irony is that the same technology being subjected to human perversion under the guise of “innovation”, “connectivity” and the likes of “social networks” can also, if properly used, give us some greater range of freedom, speed, and expedite concerns thus bringing people together to the ever present underlying realization that the world is okay, but there are some human beings who are down right criminal in their gluttony for gain no matter what that gain may be: power, money, and control to name a few.

Let me cite a few examples of factual human stories and experiences that have taken notice of the absence of sanity in human connectivity in this world. There are many to cite, but I will only give a few that have truly made this a rekindling of Christmas in my world view.

I am deeply moved by the courage displayed by a former KBR-Halliburton employee Jamie Leigh Jones for her appearance and testimony to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary about her heinous experiences while employed by an American Corporation overseas in Iraq. Her testimony was held on Wednesday, December 19, 2007, 10:15 AM at 2141 Rayburn House Office Building to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security Hearing on: Enforcement of Federal Criminal Law to Protect Americans Working for U.S. Contractors in Iraq.

In lieu of her experience she founded The Jamie Leigh Foundation whichis a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping United States citizens and legal residents who are victims of sexual harassment, rape and sexual abuse while working abroad for federal contractors, corporations, or government entities.” She appears to have incredible support from her family as she continues to recover. Her organization is said to provide a safe area for other women to come forward who have suffered similar experiences. Here at Spiritual Climate Newsletter, our continued prayers for your healing as well as those whose unnamed voices you represent, for ongoing healing, recovery and resolution go out to you.

In a different area, where the ‘out of media coverage, out of mind behavior rationalization’ bears some comment is the continual recovery process of mass disaster of mega proportions-the leftover devastation of lives from hurricane Katrina, yet it appears strongly some politicians have directed their attention and energies to the ‘Big Dig’ going on in Washington D.C. with the massive Capitol Visitors Center project whose price tag is coming in, at least so far, at about $600 million dollars. There is quite enough room for some well deserved cynical irony about this and I would be amiss in my duty as a citizen of this great Republic not to point it out.

Getting back to Katrina, my opinion and comment is likely of little difference to actor Brad Pitt, but I would like to publicly give him a ‘hat’s off’ for his ongoing activism in the participation of helping to rebuild the lives of those who suffered incredible damage and trauma from Katrina. Watching Charlie Rose having A Conversation with Brad Pitt, I listened and watched intently as Brad Pitt shared his views and some of what his Make It Right foundation is doing and pursuing. My comment is that Brad Pitt as an actor first caught my attention in the movie: Meet Joe Black, where he played alongside the incredible Anthony Hopkins. Brad Pitt as a genuine human being first caught my attention in the above interview with Charlie Rose. Not to at all imply here that a comment from me would mean anything to Brad Pitt, but I do have to say Thank-you Brad Pitt for adding to my personal experience of Christmas in your bearing forth of genuine humanity and that expression of the true human spirit that resides with us all.

What does any or all of this have to do with Qabalah? Plenty, because true qabalists are scientists who work in being receptive to truth and the reality of invisible non physical principles that emanate from the not-thing-ness of consciousness which determine the fabric and nature of creation much like physical scientists who work to seek the understanding of the invisible universal principles such as gravity that determine how elliptical orbits come about in the mundane world. This is part of the great discovery astronomer Johannes Kepler accomplished to rid the world of the errors of Ptolemy and Copernicus’s use of statistical methodology for mapping observations of orbits; Kepler was and still is correct to this day; Qabalists seek to further understand the invisible footprint of the principles consciousness that is behind the veil of the visible material universe. These principles are the font through which the aperture of the material universe renders itself manifest. These principles can be used and applied in a physical universe during our temporal sojourn in a vehicle of flesh and bones.

It may be our gift of learning that saves us from ignorance if we can ever learn to imbue ourselves with due diligence, for it is from our flaws and limitations that we have the opportunity to discover gems of truth and pearls of Wisdom and Understanding and continue to grow even when we discard the use of the physical body that we use to explore the earth which is nothing more than the microcosmic finite physical universe and the macrocosmic non physical universe emanating from the soundless sound produced by a No-Thing-Ness which brought forth Light.

Christmas is only a pagan holiday to those whose discernment is lacking in the skill to see beyond the veil of the materialist view of the physical universe. Christmas is not a worship of the physical Sun, it is the reverence that is held to the Eternal Principle of the Life Power that is veiled behind the Sun that is worshiped, not the libelous slander presented by those who wish to justify whatever image they have created their god in their own image and likeness based on whatever feeling or venue of hermeneutics being used at their disposal.

Take heed from the great One, Jesus who admonished his disciples in the parable of the “Ten Maidens” and their lamps. Jesus (YHSVH) described “five who were foolish and five who were wise.” All ten had lamps, but the wise had plenty of oil to make their lamps do what they were created for, while the unwise ones had nearly-empty lamps that did almost nothing to overcome their personal darkness that they found within the world.

This is found in Matthew 25:1-13 (King James Version) The Parable Of The Ten Maidens King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

Matthew 25:1. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4. But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. ~ end quote ~

Let me share with you a small view through the eyes of this Qabalist. If one were to strip all systems from the human body except the physical nervous system and then invert it, upright it, one would then see the Unadorned Christmas Tree. Further, if one had eye to see this tree animated by the invisible non physical principle of the Life Power via the agency of consciousness, one would witness a spectacular twinkling of lights that would be similar to an adorned Christmas tree but would make the adorned tree pale by contrast to the Living Principle of Life manifesting through the human tree in terms of light and sound. Those who have eyes and ears take hint!

I wish to thank Goldfern for driving me around in the surrounding area to see some of the homes of the wonderful people who creatively decorated their ‘trees’, their home, their BETH (hebrew: bayt, house). I was blessed that night to share this gift of life with those friends who were able to attend as I was gifted to bear witness to the dance of the Life Power behind the physical house of those who live in this world and to see an incredible non physical light that Lights all Worlds.

May you find within your tree the living gift that is lit with the Light of Wisdom and Understanding,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all

Spiritual Climate Newsletter OCTOBER 2007 ~ part 1 ~ IN DENFENSIO DE CONTEMPLATIO by Rev. David Strickler


In Defensio De Contemplatio

By Rev. David Strickler

There comes a time in everyone’s life where one needs to look back and review the events and situations that occur from the interrelationships and effects from experiences within life. Many spiritual traditions teach and often speak of the periodic examination of daily events, weekly events to review ourselves in each situation that we encounter. It is quite often to find residual leftover feelings, but sensations or some type of pensive recurring feelings or thoughts can seem to loom like clouds moving through the daytime skyline overhead on a beautiful summer day.

Much has occurred since the production of the last Spiritual Climate Newsletter. I had taken a much needed vacation back to my hometown of Lorain, Ohio. This trip was long overdue and was given to me as a gift from my students. It was kind of decided for me when Ms. Ford had to make a return trip to visit some of her remaining family in Ohio. This worked out very well because I can’t travel by myself yet, let alone drive an automobile for more than fifteen or twenty minutes. I was excited to be able to return for a long overdue visit to my hometown. This gave me the opportunity with the limited time that I had, to catch up and have a 28 year reunion with some friends I had shared many tears, joys and growing pains with during the earlier part of my life, where music played a central theme and bonding role in friendship.

I am thankful for the opportunity to have renewed, rejuvenated and healed some of my relationships where it was necessary on my behalf. I was unable to see everyone that I wanted to and liked to have seen simply because I couldn’t seem to connect with them prior to my arrival in Ohio.

For all of the joy, memories and rejuvenation that a reunion with old friends can bring, this trip was also touched by a note of sadness. One would have to be blind not to recognize that my old home town is struggling for survival; that its people are fighting to maintain whatever meager existence they may have in their region of this country. I was further saddened to hear a secondhand commentary referenced to the leadership in that region and city; that the city leadership was launching an investigation to determine why the county was struggling—talk about learned ignorance and the height of conscientious stupidity—Duhhhh—an investigation? It doesn’t even require a highly skilled academic to understand what is going on in terms of the economic collapse of that city and any of the given regions in Ohio, talk about insincere ignorance from the local political leadership. Learned ignorance? Nicholas of Cusa ( 1401-1464 a.d. whose principal work is De Docta Ignorantia ) would be shocked and roll over in his grave, it would in the very least give him an abundance of fresh material with which to augment his work and writings were he alive today.

There are many parts of the trip that were surrealistic in the texture and quality from my subjective point of view that contribute to the ongoing contemplative and pensive state of awareness that I have been preoccupied with over the past ten months. It reaffirmed my findings that a quiet state of non physical activity coupled with an observant, analytical contemplative process can yield a positive abundance of conflict resolution and fresh insight; it can refresh an ongoing summation that hadn’t received necessary attention until it was given the required space, time and attenuation.

When coupled with revisiting the actual space of activities contained within a given domain of your life experience, contemplation becomes an indispensable tool that enables an in breathing and out breathing which is representative of the fruits and process of understanding. It also allows for the resizing into better proportions of any memories, thereby discarding unnecessary incongruities due to sensory maturation and contrast through time.

Contemplation is a process in which this review takes place in our thoughts within a space of mental activity. This space is an area which in its rudimentary form is the threshold and doorway to a room that converges as an intersection point for feedback from the soul. This feedback is instigated by whatever degree of critical thinking, objectivity (as far as we’re capable of) in looking at ourselves and emotions that lack resolution contained within the events being reviewed within our life.

Processes of contemplation used rightly, can render the landscape of our prior event and situational horizon from our experience in a new and different light, perhaps the clarified light that enables us to see things which may have gone unnoticed and removed from the lens of our awareness. We can gain from this process a standpoint of ourselves in relation to our activity contained within any interrelationship and situation in our encounters in the stream of our live within the container of our physical bodies during our short manifestation here within the confines of this earthly plane.

There is a cornucopia of gains in richness to be derived from using contemplation as a means to investigate wherever our experience and awareness is restricted by any defensive posture or negative response to the encounters our senses become exposed to in the hustle and bustle of the everyday world. Sometimes it can seem as though we’re negotiating as if we’re white water rafting, either through waters that are calm or tumultuous with turbulent twists and turns, up and downs through the mixture of spiritual climates that we call our day.

The yield can either be an awareness that we’ve left something undone, unsaid or maybe the realization of an achievement however small or large which occurs to us after the event has taken place. This is where the harvest can be great, as long as we provide labor to sift and sort the knowledge from the wheat and chaff contained within the bushels of information that our senses are reacting to and have gathered from the exterior world that they stand in relation to. The senses are imperfect even though they have an astonishing capability to create imagery and reflections of the representation or model from the information that they are gathering vastly exceeding any modern technological wonders.

One of the fruits of contemplation is a newfound awareness generated from a view compiled from preceding events in our lives. This awareness is actually one of the signposts that we are beginning to utilize spiritual consciousness in this world and the awareness that I’m speaking of is quite simple: Do we really understand where another person is coming from or do we just merely recognize the words that they’re speaking and from there go on to create a picture generated from the personal bias of definitions of those words merely from the subjective dictionary generated from our own experiences. In other words are we on the same page? How much of the page is similar? Where and which words being used are we responding to in the same way that the other person is responding; are we seeing the picture that the person is conveying with their words?

It is in this area we can come to realize or at least begin to realize where a vast field of misunderstanding and non consensus is contained. This is one domain that can be investigated within anyone’s interactions where signals of misinterpretation have been rendered because of the subjective listening bias of any participant. This type of phenomenon is widely recognized by translators who must render words and sentences spoken from another individual of a different language being presented to the listener in their own native language. Translation is a delicate process and requires skills, discernment and objectivity for the rendering to come as close to the intent of the foreign language being spoken to be understood by a listener who is a non native.

Haven’t you ever wondered about the accuracy of what is being translated in some social situations; is it an approximation? Personally, I have heard and seen many situations within which a translation has been rendered and a word comes out which is only a close approximation to the foreign word being used and is lacking in accuracy based on the skill of the translator. People who only speak English, read English and write English are often times prone to such misunderstandings that occur within translations, due to lack of education or some peculiar form of cultural narcissism where they have allowed themselves and their perceptions to become the center of the universe.

This phenomenon is common in the political arena, especially where the current news-entertainment industry takes its usual five to ten second sound bytes and presents the misinterpretation of their focus by interpreting a given set of words spoken by another individual completely out of context, in its place creating a phantasmagoria of biased perception to be impressed upon the listening audience and painting the way towards a canvas of socially engineered mob perception.

On a larger scale using contemplation we can see the tools of compliance being used, implemented suavely and with great ingenuity by public relations engineers in order to achieve the desired end through the creation of a pseudo product. What else would one expect in the world of the religion of consumerism, whether that consumerism be products of engineered misinformation from religious, scientific or any other field of discipline which subscribes to the historical inertia resulting from the heresy in the ongoing activity of sophistry descending from the heritage of Greek history? This phenomenon has continually incarnated and reshaped into every period of time generated by the skills of materialists who have drawn from the instinctual art of morphing and adaptation contained within the subhuman animal portion of the human brain.

One only need watch the parsing of words in any political, religious or scientific arena where a common language is shared during a discourse, exchange of opinions and points of view to experience the stretching behavior that results from the compulsive behavior generated by selling; have we turned our society into nothing more than a group of individuals who have become a consortium of morally depraved salespeople practicing their salesmanship to achieve some form of transitory gratification in the form of personal fame, glory or satisfaction for the behest of some hedge fund, private equity firm or any other form of institutional economic terrorism that seeks to disassemble the greater welfare of this nation and our children?

We live in an age where entertainers, such as Ann Coulter (not to leave out Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity) express themselves and use the word liberalism in a profoundly suspicious approximation of usage as Adolf Hitler did in his book, Mein Kampf.

“Today Christians … stand at the head of [this country]… I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit … We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past … (few) years.”

~ Adolf Hitler, quoted in: The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, 1922-1939, Vol. 1 (London, Oxford University Press, 1942), pg. 871-872 )

Shouldn’t this raise enough flags to question the philosophical parentage of some of the babbling writers within today’s current society and at the very least question the motivation of some major writers and pundits who have celebrity status with the trash they produce-what is it that they seek to do? Perhaps they’re just laughing all the way to the bank whilst striding across the stage as an idiot telling the tale of rancid rant in order to gratify some unfulfilled need that came into being during their childhood or adolescence. In all fairness, pundits such as the above mentioned and many others would appear far more credible if they wore a straitjacket when speaking when appearing before the public on any platform where they are engaged as guests or host speakers.

Words and usage of words is important as we should strive for accuracy instead of intentional misinformation, disinformation and the lemming syndrome that can occur in such instances of uncritical acceptance of word collages designed to incite fear, insecurity and compliance. Further contemplation is needed in this area where some are recognizing the use of engineered compliance being tooled to generate a psychological form of coup d’état to produce an outcome that usurps freedom, liberty and the genuine expression of spiritual individuality, depriving any future growth out of the delusion and illusion that appears to be festering like an unconstrained cancer in this world in the its Tower of Babel.

It is time to question the use of our own words whenever we find our need to communicate and to be understood in personal, business or social situations. It is also time to question the definitions of some of the very same words we use when those words are being heard coming out of mouths of people in any position of leadership for the greater good of social growth and future directions being considered to increase the life, liberty and happiness of the people of this great nation and its general welfare. We are at a crossroads, I believe, where critical and strong questions are needed to be posed in order to draw attention towards any agenda that remains hidden from the public, whether the purpose for concealment is intentional or unintentional; it is in this way that we can come to help the determinations based on information presented where decisions and choices are required in order to procure a healthful outcome for our future and our children’s future.

Perhaps it is time to reconsider the use of contemplation and further refine our skill to reclaim our internal landscape, returning it to a dynamic balance capable of producing and uncovering knowledge left in the shadows from the myopic use of our listening and visual skills generated by the unnecessary speed or the worship to the monetary gains eulogized by the productivity pulpits of the Wall Street false prophets. Maybe it is high time to fire the couturiers who are currently involved in the latest trend of the new emperor’s clothes.

Let us go forward from here and foster the use of contemplation, to offset the insidious rate of productivity that increasingly speeds us toward a rapid disintegration of our personal space and time where we are free to explore the wonders of human consciousness and the life stream created upon the tapestry of our never ending existence which continues even outside physical containers that we recognize as our life here in this world.

We don’t need innovation; we do need the discovery of new knowledge derived from a comprehension of the invisible principles that are within the physical domain of the universe in order to align with the continual expansion and inherent yet untapped plentitude that exists within their rich potential harvest in our unending travels in terra firma. The current use of the word innovation by the predominant sophists of our time appears to me to be nothing more than an attempt at diversion. Diversion from what you may ask? From the obvious would be my answer, from slowing down and taking the time to see and hear what is really going on by asking a wide range and narrow range of necessary questions that take to task the current views being promulgated by paid for mouthpieces who may not have our best intentions and livelihood at heart or in sight.

We can begin within the sphere of our personal spiritual climate, by increasing the warming of our discernment in order to bring about a thawing-out of the frozen wasteland that was produced by our non use of those abilities that were given to us at the moment of our birth when we were created in the image and likeness of our creator and source. It is through the tools of genuine meditation and contemplation that we can become unfrozen and begin to live and move and have our being within the true freedom that resides within by embracing truth and discarding whatever falsehood we have unintentionally accepted, be that falsehood an erroneous acceptance of misinformation generated by opinions coming from religious, political, scientific or business malfeasance.

In the spirit of contemplation be ever vigilant, even though the visible threat of physical terrorism has existed ever since the dawn of this great nation, I feel people need to become more aware of forms of terrorism that are not physical by nature and therefore aren’t as apparent to the unaided eye: economic terrorism, monetary terrorism, policies that create terrorism, fiscal austerity terrorism, the state of the ignorance which creates ideological terrorism, subprime loan terrorism, just to name a few.

Let in the light, ( Vayomer Elohim Yehi Aur: וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי אוֹר [And God said: ‘Let there be light.’] ) and the darkness will vanish, disappear like ice and snow in the light of the noonday sun, whatever the shape and face of the darkness that appears within the model that the physical senses create will disappear when we open the curtains and allow the effulgent spiritual light infuse us in Its glistening warmth. All the creatures of darkness and shadows of phantasmagoria will disappear and we shall see truly what there is to see and know and exercise what wisdom we gain.

That is the true spirit of the Qabala, to be receptive. This begs the question, to be receptive to what? It is here with this question that we must exercise the inherent freedom of choice that we are given to employ in this world and in all worlds that we live and move and have our being within; we must choose who and/or what we are receptive to, as this exemplifies the first lesson and skill to be gleaned from understanding the practice that Qabala can bring, and this lesson is the lesson of discernment, ever to be gained, honed and wielded within the personal domain of our physical senses that stand in relationship to ‘exterior’ world.

Humanity stands at a crossroads, and the citizens of this great nation, the United States of America, born at the receptivity inherent within the consciousness of our Founding Fathers who chose to pay attention to a higher calling for the benefit of the general welfare of the future of humanity, are at a point in history where we too must choose. It is my hope that we heed the voice and record of history and select the choice that will benefit the general welfare of the current humanity and the future humanity that inevitably will come to growth here in this dismal plane.

Welcome back to Spiritual Climate Newsletter. Thank you for choosing to take some time and space in allowing me to share some of the fruit of contemplation generated during my absence in the process of confronting and overcoming some of my personal physical limitations as a result of my medical event from three years ago.

Spiritual Climate Newsletter APRIL 2007 ~ part 1 IT’S a MATTER of KNOWLEDGE, NOT PERCEPTION by Rev. David Strickler




By Rev. David Strickler

Ashes sometimes drift on the wind and carried afar, by movements of air and then perhaps dissolved into the watery confines of the oceans or seas. Residue our bodies cast adrift into the biosphere of this planet that we call earth. The energies created by the principles emanated by our consciousness also move through a three fold process of disintegrating, equilibrating, and integrating; the basic modulation in these aspects of the principles that exist within our consciousness is that which enables us a tertiary ‘layered’ form of macrocosmic scripting of ourselves via this trinity of Spirit, Soul and Astral envelope which contributes fully to the functional bio-aspect aperture you express and identify through called your physical body.

Elaborating on any of the systems becoming or manifestation, produced within consciousness can be at best, just a starting point toward the apprehension of knowledge which can only be adduced through a philosophy that properly dispels the inadequacy of empiricism and the philosophers that supported the idiotlogy that states what the senses grasp are the only thing that can be known. I would have to start the conversation pointing out that the essence of Genesis (ALEPH Bereshyt) was profoundly induced and brought into vibration of 7 (days) principles, that which can be heard produced from the sounds of sounds known as the voice of creation; thus vibrated (from sound) formed into light. Now please take into consideration that this is even before ANY physical manifestation comes into being.

Each of the Seven principles are expressed in the classic book called the KYBALION It was supposedly written by the three initiates, one of whom is considered to be Dr. Paul Foster Case one of the greatest practical Kabbalists of the past 50 or so years. Within his writing is contained much knowledge pointing towards truth which in turn acts as veils of the main principles behind which we find the principles of consciousness. One of the other initiates is believed to be Yogi Ramacharaka (aka William Walker Atkinson), while there appears to be a consensus (yet inconclusive) that the third person contributing to the book was a woman by the name of Mabel Collins (1851 – 1927) a gifted Theosophist and occult writer who was black listed by the Theosophical Society according to some accounts.  In some circles it is stated that the real author’s names were never used for the publication of the book because the principles and the philosophies that the book that presents cannot be credited to any person.

There’s a wealth of knowledge to be explored, discovered and applied that one is to distill in practical daily use toward the discovery of that sentient nonphysical principle that consciousness uses as a latticework or a loom to bring from the subtle and into greater ranges of densification until the formation of the physical senses originate from non-physical principles. The five physical senses then stand in relation of their proximity and incomplete comprehension to form and begin creating a picture of the world around you. Part of the nature of your senses is only to give their relation point to the external world thus rendering a perspective of your relationship that your physical senses have in proportion to the external world. It is within these physical senses we find the lessons of the Allegory of Platonic Cave; that the shadows we watch ‘come to life’ and dance on the wall of the senses are nothing more than that-faithful reproductions based on the limitations of our remarkable physical senses of the external world and yet incomplete, the apple is not red it only appears to be red based on the vibrational range they are capable of reproducing. Amusing at times, to see how many people are as yet deluded by the illusion created by the senses, yet some use the very same habit of delusion in their interpretation of sacred text. It gets even less amusing when unskilled interpreters operating in their ‘Disney Mode’ interpret hermetically sealed ideations, principles and knowledge with little or no regard to anything but the use of their improperly used imagination and then sometimes justifying their behavior by saying their infantilism is generating money to substantiate the use of their fantasy is a reality.

Time and time again we watch the reappearance of components of the knowledge and principles intentionally confined into symbols by the hermeticists and held with in small groups of selected people who were chosen for their ability to hold onto, convey appropriately with lucid accuracy the nature of the major principles of consciousness and the agency’s (laws) resulting from these principles out of which arise the natural polarization of conditions within the physical mundane world called everyday life. The last large volume of work that the hermeticists produced whereby they sealed knowledge into symbolic content was during the period of time prior to and upwards a bit from 2 BCE during the compilation of the components of what is commonly referred to as the ‘old testament’, wherein the content of the origins of creation were preserved in the sacred language of Hebrew wherein each letter represents a principle and unit of measurement and contains no vowels, unlike our synthetic linear language called English whose letters represent nothing at all. It is not surprising in the least to watch the attempts of untrained, unskilled yet highly imaginative people vainly interpret alchemical and or spiritual writings into misleading and misrepresented disinformation, much like the arrogance of presenting human induced global warming – the idiocy of which Lucifer must be laughing his ass off at human gullibility divorced from knowledge!

Fascinating at times to watch the prance, parade and dance of the human ego. A good percentage of people are suckered into the apparitions of their senses and accept their senses as the only thing that can be known and support their erroneous irrationality by the writings of lunatics such as Hobbes, Kant and Thomas Malthus to name only a few. There must be some great overwhelming sensation to succumb to such wailing and gnashing of teeth offered by the Sophists who use small pieces of this knowledge and agencies and laws to create conditions in which they can extract cash to parasitically live their lives. How? Create a gospel by writing a book, never mind that the knowledge inside the book was truncated and pieced together to fit what is pleasing to the eye of the creative artist who is painting a picture which is nothing more than an abortion of the original tenets of fractured knowledge from which the structure of the book was drawn; as long as people ‘buy it’ that seems to be all that matters in an age where consumerism and making money along with the worship of the dollar, certainty and sensation is the modern religion of the day.

Next stage is quite simple: getting some metaphysicians jump on the bandwagon by providing them with an audience and a stage financed by the brothels that are simply gaining profit while experimenting on social engineering by mood creating solace in the in the mental atmosphere by giving out mother’s milk to unsuspecting overworked adults thereby adding insult to injury by laughing at the true spiritual consciousness that resides within all human beings. Sophistry arises once again to the forefront.

Such a simplification is usually released at the behest of a larger group of behavioral engineers that are seeking to provide distraction via some illusory form of higher hope while filling their pockets with whatever national currency is held by the nation that the so called book of secrets is being sold in; belief structures can create the perception of a reality, but that perception of reality may bear no resemblance to the real reality it is supposed to represent and therein lies the danger. For the sake of brevity in this article please read this statement once or twice: there is no law of attraction. Once again, there is no law of attraction.

About now I should hear the gripe that the law of attraction is found in print (therefore it’s gospel) from many sources; I am aware of that, I am aware to cite one example, it is referenced in the Kybalion, where it calls attention to the law of attraction. I think is brought into the writing about ten times: you are correct it is right there in print and it is an occult BLIND. I’m going to say to you that the language that the three initiates operated within during that day and time was restricted by the knowledge and their ability to express that knowledge within the language of their milieu. One might also include the science of their time if one can refer to a genuine science, not science working at the behest of marketing which makes it nothing more than junk science. That aside, the authors used this BLIND employing the word attraction, blinds are a common occurrence in spiritual and alchemical essays and that is done intentionally. This intentionality is there to prevent those who would use the power that hidden knowledge can put into the hands of psychologically damaged people. Locking up the knowledge by hermetically sealing it with a ‘blind’ prevents perversion of its use. IF used at just its coded face value it will generate negative karma (law of compensation) if it is used as is, in other words, just the use of the word attraction leads to effects of misapplication and those responsible for generating its misuse will incur negative karma in this life or in their next.

Seven basic principles consciousness uses toward the ends manifestation and of those seven principles are as follows:


From the seven principles are generated laws which are agencies that enable the universe to produce a reflection in many aspects towards a physical representation that resembles some range of activity that the originating principle intends to bring about, some recognition of the consciousness that it represents.

The so called artificial law of attraction doesn’t exist as a law, but as an effect within the physical mundane world. That’s right, I said an effect and I am not talking about the principle of effect—if there is one, provided that ‘effect’ is not a blind being used within the principle of Cause, that being stated and not within the scope of this current article or argument for consideration. So what is being proclaimed as a law of attraction is BULLCRAP from the position of my tradition because attraction is an effect streaming from the principle of polarity using the law of desire. I would agree that there is a law of desire and that there is an effect known as Attraction that emerges as a condition in relationship to the law of desire. The question may arise as to why I am making such a deal about this and it is quite simple.

There are those who are blatantly bastardizing information while masquerading this information as knowledge when in fact it is not knowledge, it is only information and speculation from the realm of fancy circular reasoning and profiting from it at the same time. Problems are created by this type of irrational speculation in that it creates a form of the ‘emperor’s new clothes’ behavior being expressed verbally by a few people in pockets of mainstream idiocy which results in the parlance of “you attracted, it is your fault” another way of rationalizing the blame the victim lunacy which is being passed around quite actively by people from different tiers of life and seemingly more active from those within higher financial echelons to support their illegal and/or morally, ethically bestial behavior to justify and protect their cash flows. What a load of crap. Anyone who believes in the ‘blame the victim theory’ is a mentally disturbed person; they are insane-money does not justify or guarantee a person’s saneness.

Accountability I hear being shouted from some quarters; true I would say but what determines accountability? My first question to those who support the lunacy of blame the victim idiotologies is: should I hold your lack of sanity accountable for such flights of delusion which creates deviants who further tragedies such as Jerry Miller who served 25 years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, the 200 person exonerated by post conviction DNA testing by the Innocence Project? Where is the shout for accountability of those and the system that sentenced him? Isn’t the shout for accountability more than just a convenient conclusion for lynch mob mentality? It is complete lunacy to create a Tower of Babel that gives credibility to Idiotologies suggesting such things that the murder of innocent children or that the students at Virginia Tech ‘attracted’ themselves to the situation, that is beastialization from my view and you are in need of serious psychological intervention to believe such rubbish.

For Christ sake, some of you better find the light switch in your heads.

That is one of the reasons why there are ‘blinds’ put within written and oral traditions of spirituality and process, in this way, those who know and who have the keys to interpret correctly can distinguish genuine spiritual articulation from that of the jackasses who are making money by selling disinformation and profiteering from the Sophistry of their lunacy inside the temple. It’s as bad as the Nut Cases who are still waiting for the Second Coming of the Great One who are being guided by some slime bag preacher backed by a Hedge Fund convincing them that the Second Coming hasn’t occurred, when the fact of the matter is that the Second Coming has been happening since the appearance of the Great Rabbi known by the mainstream as Jesus.

Alongside Truth, not falsehood, it is a matter of knowledge, not perception.
