Tek-Gnostics Heresies Vid


"Is the Paranormal fast-becoming the New Normal? What is the Technological Singularity and why are America’s top tech gurus afraid of it? What vast conspiracy emerged after WWII, virally expanding its influence via the CIA, LSD & UFOs?"

"How many rivers do we have to cross… before we can talk to the boss?"

Simple Twist of Synchronicity – Hobby Lobby caught with illicit antiquities


In the Tek-Gnostics Network's last post, entitled: Allegiance, I had briefly touched upon the expansion of American Archon Empire in the Middle East and the looting of antiquities in Bagdad…

 “The sacking of Iraq’s museums and National Library, with the destruction of much of Iraq’s cultural heritage, is a crime against all of humanity. It is nothing less than the theft of our shaded ancient human history.”

As synchronicity would have it, the world's press lit up a few days later, with a story about the owners of Hobby Lobby, Inc… the Green family, and their illicit acquisition of priceless artifacts, smuggled out of Iraq. An article, published on July 6th, by the New York Times had this to say on this curious development…

“The Justice Department announced on Wednesday that the crafting giant Hobby Lobby, Inc. has agreed to forfeit thousands of ancient Mesopotamian artifacts that it had illegally imported from Iraq. Along with a hefty $3 million payment, this concludes a federal investigation that has been going on since 2011, when United States customs agents seized an incoming shipment of cuneiform tablets, labeled “hand-made clay tiles” and headed for the Hobby Lobby headquarters in Oklahoma City.”

It turns out that the Green Family, the same family that successfully argued before the Supreme Court in 2014, over the right to not provide contraceptive coverage for their employees based on religious belief, purchased these illegal treasures for their newest pet project:  the Museum of the Bible, opening soon in Washington DC, near the National Mall. The illegal purchase and import of these ancient artifacts, only feeds a Black Market of unscrupulous dealers of antiquities and tomb raiders. 

The NYT article went on to say…

“The particular legal issue of falsified import papers is merely the tip of a much larger ethical iceberg. The real issue here is the black market in looted antiquities, a market that has loomed beneath the surface of storied museum collections and private holdings for many years, but that became especially visible during the first Iraq War and the period of regional destabilization that followed.”

Oddly enough… the fact that the Green family, knowingly purchased these treasures to display in a Museum of the Bible, kind of takes on a sinister undertone. Not only does it not seem like the “Christian thing to do,” the very idea of smuggling artifacts has a “Western Crusader” quality to it.

Given the synchronistic nature of this story… coming to light when it did… indicates to me that we need to keep our synchro-mystic eye on these stories… not only the antiquities black market… but the whole Hobby Lobby Museum of the Bible story. There are strange things afoot at the Circle K National Mall!

Allegiance


As I went walking... I saw a sign there... 
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing." 
But on the other side... it didn't say nothing... 
That side was made for you and me.

- from "This Land is Your Land" by Woody Guthrie

It goes without saying that the socio-political landscape has taken on a dystopian quality, world-wide. This nightmare takes the form of war, famine and the resulting decimation and displacement of whole populations. In the Americas, the grand democratic experiment appears to be all but over, with the largest transfer (read: theft) of wealth going from the low and middle class, to the 1% Robber Barons. Between 1983 and 2010 the top 5 percent of income earners Robber Barons, increased their cut of the spoils by 74.2 percent, while the bottom 60 percent of the American population saw their share of national income decrease.

The American Archons clearly foresee a future that no longer depends upon a working class, at least in the United States. Hell… robots will be doing the work, soon enough. Oddly enough (or maybe not), the response to this emerging reality has seen significant portions of populations devolve into an extreme, jingoistic nationalism that will only lead to more violence and war.

I must confess that, over the years, I have been somewhat syndical toward patriotic displays. "America... love it or leave it" seems to just keep getting... meaner. The whole “greed is good” capitalist fever of the 80s and 90s seemed pointless… shallow… sad, really.

The expansion of Empire, by the American Archons into the Middle East, made no sense at the time, and seems much more nefarious now. What were they really after in Iraq? The sacking of Iraq’s museums and National Library, with the destruction of much of Iraq’s cultural heritage, is a crime against all of humanity. It is nothing less than the theft of our shared ancient human history.

It seemed then, and appears now, that we in the West have lost our way, or had our way stolen. 

Being Here Now, at the crossroads of paradigm and apocalypse… with the loss of faith in political institutions… the question becomes one of what to believe in? The time of patriotism… of patrilineal weirdness, is rapidly drawing to a close. A Noƶ patriotism matriotism is on the rise. Mother Earth… Mother Nature… is on the ascent. As that good ole’ American psychedelic Cult of the Dead band once said… “With nothing to believe in, the compass always points to Terrapin.”

I have always loved this country. By that, I mean the rivers and streams… the mountains… the vast forests… the Great Plains… from sea to shining sea. My allegiance is with and to our natural environs… which appear to be under attack by the current American Archon Administration.

With that said, I humbly offer this re-write of the pledge of allegiance… 

I pledge allegiance to Mother Earth and the natural ecosystems of America. And to the environs, on which we stand… one planet, within Universe… Indivisible... With liberty and justice for all.


Happy 4th of July, everybody... - J ♥

The Cyberpunk as Modern Alchemist


(circa 1999)
The chain of events that elevated us to this new genetic status, HOMO SAPIENS CYBERNETICUS, began around the turn of the century.

Physicists, we recall, are traditionally assigned the task of sorting out the nature of reality. So it was the quantum philosophers who figured out that units of energy/matter were sub-atomic bits of programmed information that zoom around in clouds of ever-changing, if/then, start/stop, off/on, 0/1, yin/yang probabilities in clusters of pixels, up-and-down recurring stairways of paradox.

When they started out, no one understood what these guys were talking about. They expressed their unsettling theories in complex equations written on blackboards with chalk. Believe it or not, these great physicists thought and communicated with a neolithic tool -- chalk-marks on the wall of the cave. The irony was this: Einstein and his brilliant colleagues could not experience or operate or communicate at a quantum-electronic level.

Imagine if Max Planck pottering around in his mathematical chalk-board had access to a video-arcade game! He'd see right away that the blips on Centipede and the zaps of Space Invaders could represent the movement of the very particles that he tried to describe in the dusty symbols of his blackboard.

The baby boom generation has grown up in an electronic world of TV and personal computing screens. The cyberpunks offer metaphors, rituals, life styles for dealing with the universe of information. More and more of us are becoming electro-shamans, modern alchemists.

Alchemists of the Middle Ages described the construction of magical appliances for viewing future events, or speaking to friends distant or dead. Writings of Paracelsus describe a mirror of ELECTRUM MAGICUM with telegenic properties, and crystal scrying was in its heyday.

Today, digital alchemists have at their command tools of a precision and power unimagined by their predecessors. Computer screens ARE magical mirrors, presenting alternate realities at varying degrees of abstraction on command (invocation). Aleister Crowley defined magick as "the art and science of causing change to occur in conformity with our will," and to this end the computer is the universal level of Archimedes.

The parallels between the culture of the alchemists and that of cyberpunk computer adepts are inescapable. Both employ knowledge of an occult arcanum unknown to the population at large, with secret symbols and words of power. The "secret symbols" comprise the languages of computers and mathematics, and the "words of power" instruct computer operating systems to complete Herculean tasks. Knowing the precise code name of a digital program permits it to be conjured into existence, transcending the labor of muscular or mechanical search or manufacture.

Rites of initiation or apprenticeship are common to both. "Psychic feats" of telepathy and action-at-a-distance are achieved by selection of the menu option.

The Decline of the West

Flash! ...this just in from the Neon Dystopia Pop-Media website...

It seems you can actually measure America’s decline. According to the Social Progress Imperative, a US-based nonprofit group, the United States of America is a second-tier nation. Based on rankings in 50 different categories, the USA is lacking in social unity, civic progress, tolerance and inclusion and health and wellness. According to SPI executive, Micheal Green, the USA “is failing to address basic human needs, equip citizens to improve their quality of life, protect the environment, and provide an opportunity for everyone to make personal choices and reach their full potential.”
