“NOT HURTING ANYONE’S FEELINGS”

It was Jordan Maxwell who said that while he talked about religion because the people who believe in it become so emotionally entrenched that it becomes very hard for anyone who doesn’t believe in it to say anything about it. He needed to say that because his work, very early on, would let people know the truth that religion have been set in place by human factors, not divine ones. No god has ever written anything down here. At least in the past, this has never been allowed to happen. Any historical evidence points to the fact that none of the Biblical events ever truly happened and that all scriptures have been compiled by scribes who did indeed discern a Law for themselves, and they did indeed feel that it was the Law of Heaven that they’d pass on and are honoured of formulating. These scribes or high-priests, (brahmans, masons …), or ‘emissaries of the divine’, were themselves aiming to transcend the human condition and eventually leave this tragic secular place of suffering and delusion. They were primarily passing on knowledge from times immemorial orally, to chosen adepts, (disciples, students …) who then became initiates into the esoteric/secret ‘mysteries’. If they did write something down, they crafted their manuscripts in narrative code, mostly using easy-to-grasp stories (some of which were already of great antiquity and which they only modified/modernised), in order to

1. avoid persecution or castigation if the writings were ever captured by brutal ignorants or the hopelessly profane, because, taken literally, these texts were hiding the inner and higher meanings and merely telling folk tales

2. allow those who in earnest study those texts, to continuously elevate themselves according to their attained level of wisdom, since the compiling of the texts was done in such a skilled way that it had different meanings on different levels and new truths contained therein would continuously reveal themselves to the sincere student as they kept improving themselves

while 3. due to the rather solid nature of using encoded stories, those utterly serious fountains of knowledge embedded therein were not prone to be watered down with falsehoods while being passed down over many future generations. Alteration of the fundamentals they were conveying would have been catastrophic since any serious discernment of the Law required the universal truths embedded in the texts to remain forever pure and untouchable.

In this light, the 3. reason appears to have been the main incentive for cultivators like the Essenes sect and other early Christians, to compile a whole new set of scriptures that laid down the Law in a more ‘modern’, ‘pure’ and ‘unspoilt’ manner. It was obviously felt strongly that the accumulated volume of the over 1500 year old Hebrew Law transmission had become too cluttered, complex and impure to allow future cultivators to attain completion, or perhaps to even cultivate at all with them. They also clearly had a take on the political-territorial bias that got strangely infused into some of the stories. Thus, the Canon of Jesus, the Christ was born, a canon that was so well written and awe-inspiring that many future generations of millions upon millions of people – as well as the entire culture of the West – were to take it as a source book and as their guideline to cultivate or elevate and morally better themselves.

Now, there was a dividing line between the inside knowledge of the Law (the esoteric or mystic view of reality) and between the official and publicly imparted knowledge of the Law (the exoteric or dogmatic ‘guided’ perception of ‘reality’). Those who don’t take the tell tales in the Scriptures to be literal accounts of worldly events, but regard them as nuggets of secret Information that had the ability to guide their students to higher realms of reality and possibly allow them entrance into the gates of heaven through Consummation (Spiritual Perfection) – those were called Gnostics, or “Seekers of Truth”. All brotherhoods and masonic lodges, as long as they discern ‘goodness’ or ‘compassion’ in their Law, can be regarded as that, really. Seekers of Gnosis. And if their level of knowledge penetrated even deeper into the past and the ultimate truth about the human body, into talk about everlasting life, elixir, alchemy, yin yang duality, supernatural and divine powers, the third eye, pineal gland, etc, then they’d form the innermost core inside that particular canon and were the true cultivators of old and of today. For the most part, they don’t partake in or reveal themselves in the world that we, on a day-to-day level are a part of. They would usually cultivate in recluse and do this with utmost sincerity.

If, on the other hand, the texts were imparted and compiled for the general public, only the literal meaning was meant to be seen in them (during hard-core inquisition this was even law-enforced through death and torture). Any hidden meanings were only to be discerned on your own, at most. Early Christians strongly advised to read their texts not at all literally. While the Political Powers of the Official Church later on silenced and excommunicated those original voices and brainwashed the Masses to do exactly just that.

In other words, the public, official imparting of Heaven’s Law – with all its systematic arrangements of how the masses can both benefit as well as being kept at stake – was then what we today regard as ‘religion’ (it makes sense for me to see this phenomenon not in a sinister or cynical but in an upright, dialectic way, since both good and evil co-exist here and there’s obviously always the matter of an individual’s own choice, also known as our ‘free will’). Religion, therefore, does not ‘save’ any one person, nor by itself will tell you any of the ‘real truths’ or by itself – by maybe following some of its strict rituals – will let you transcend to any higher realms. It will primarily serve the purpose to keep the sheep in a more or less virtuous state and to allow anyone with higher morals and character to become ennobled and possibly ‘holy’.

Any ‘upright’ religion teaches people to be Good as supposed to be Bad. And the stories that make up their canon are written in such a way that people from all walks of life will have a fair chance to understand what exactly does it mean to be either good or bad, and which choices they’d have to make in order to become even ‘better and ‘better’.

There is a quick fix for those who simply can’t believe what myself and others have been saying about the human construct of religion and her name is Acharya S. The book “The Christ Conspiracy” does not only dismantle any claims of Christianity that their god or saviour ever existed, but she does that even for the entirety of all Jewish claims to be following divinely imparted Laws and precepts. Her tongue is so piercing that it cuts like a blade and her claims so well-founded and backed-up that they do seem impossible to dismiss. In short, it seems highly unlikely that any of the Biblical stories, King David, Solomon, Moses, Joseph, St. Mary, etc, up to Jesus Christ and the 12 Apostles, ever truly happened, nor that any of those characters ever truly existed. They are merely inventions and they’ve been created with a certain system and purpose and have an extraordinary mountain of knowledge behind them. That’s the reality of it and one must be a fool to not be able to see it. There really aren’t any feelings to be hurt here, or at least not any real ones.

One thing to note, though. There have been many religions inspiring and guiding man. While we’ve merely looked into the main Western ones, we don’t find it too difficult to deduct the same for all the other religions as well. Could it be that also Buddha Shakyamuni never existed. We’d say, there’s a good chance that he never did. What’s certain, though, is that Mithras, Thoth, Isis, Semiramis, Krishna, Quetzalcoatl, Zeus, Persephone, etc, all tell the same stories, only the names of the characters have changed and maybe some of the settings and details.The story of Christ, like the story of Noah, is something that can be found in almost any culture.

And for those who think that they’ve known this all along and therefore always shied away from religion: what man believes to be true is always subject to certain belief systems. And modern Empirical Science, while it claims to be not a religion, is certainly nothing other than that. In fact, it is the most successful of all religions, insofar as people believe their views are ‘provable’ and based on and supported by all of their surrounding physical reality. It is not so.

All of your reality will inevitably be shaped according to your original perceptions. Once, for instance, the world is viewed as a set of random occurrences and measured accordingly, resulting evidence will begin to support this. While a view that everything around us is created and follows a higher law will create the evidence that that’s the way how things truly are. Only those who’re given a Set of Laws and Guidelines of Perception that hold true universally, over long stretches of time and over a large range of levels and dimensions, will have a chance to re-adjust their views and perceptions accordingly and will gain a truer and more accurate picture of the universe and the tangible reality around them. This is what Gnostics are doing. And it’s simply called, since times immemorial, Cultivation. Only true cultivation is therefore a science in a true sense.

Which brings us to today’s entries.

Original CARTOON

I’ve been doing this Muhammad cartoon a few years back after the Powers had orchestrated an outcry against Muslim hypocrisy. Muhameddan believers apparently got upset because some secular cartoonist supposedly depicted their holy Prophet in an ‘unfitting’ manner. A whole army of liberal cartoonists then went to work (presumably under the protective umbrella of sinister UNO ‘liberalisation’) and publicly attacked this Muslim hypocrisy. But their take, without exception, always centred on taking the piss about religious fanatism in general. Not one of them questioned the underlying flaw of any belief system. Or the fanatism that comes from the blind belief in science, for instance.

Now, I’ve been saying on many occasions that the most effective way to control a large group of people is to hook into people’s beliefs on the one hand (Neptune, astrologically speaking) and people’s intimacy on the other (Pluto, astrologicaly speaking). The first hook establishes the Official Line that everybody (as long as he deems himself to be an integral part of such society, functioning and accepted) adheres to, writes PhD papers on and holds discussions about. They get married through not diverging from this line and establish business contacts. The whole society, under such control, is tightly knit and malleable.

The belief system issuing agency meanwhile needs to operate behind the scenes and in secrecy, to be effectively upholding the Grand Scheme, unbeknownst to the general public and increasingly harder to detect as the generations of moulded populace relies more and more on the truman show reality that had been created around them. Our Secret Services call this today ‘Perception Management’ and it had been tested and brought to perfection by ‘research societies’ like the Soviet Union, German Democratic Republic and China, before it had been rolled out in its most unsuspecting and on the surface moderate and indulging method, into our present-day NWO society. Which right away ties in with manipulating our experience and perception of Intimacy and Merging, which directly affects all of our emotional ties and our day-to-day emotional games and pastimes. Psychology has been researching this to perfection until about the 60’s, 70’s, upon which the public realm, of course, had to be left in the dark about it. The bottom line is that Conditioning works, and it works perfectly at that. Since our intimacy is the most secret and most ‘embarrassing’ of our human traits, hooking into it allows to control social interaction and game-play in the most secretive and sinister manner. No one will ever know … what you touch, when and how. And most importantly, why you do it. And how that makes you feel. While of course, bugs do know, even in bathrooms, and all duly record it.

Let’s be honest. In todays farcical consumerist culture – who would not lie to you? Who would still dare to honestly tell you the truth? Even if they did, would you believe them? No, you wouldn’t. All of it has become a ‘one-voice-system’. This so-called ‘culture’ has been crafted so efficiently as to use any possible weakness of your character, any possible transgression or omission of the Law, so that it can bring you down forever and completely. It’s futile for me to talk about it other than the mere mention. Look it up yourself and dig your head in. It’s not entirely secret, although of course, deeply buried in thousands times over clownesque charades and blathering stupidities. Truth can’t just be given to you. It has got to be earnestly discerned. It appears to be an universal law and there does not seem to be a way around it. Why? Because if it is not you who sees the truth, who is able to distinguish the pearls from the fish eyes, then who would it be who chooses his future? Would it still be a matter of free will? So that seems to be the issue.

Coming back to the cartoon. Back then, the original cartoon got the attention of the New Yorker, who I’d sent it as an ‘intellectual rescue mission’. They presumably liked many facets of the original ideas, like Jesus with hair loss talking to a fat meditating Buddha while holding a joint, Abraham / Moses looking himself into the mirror while being protected from the sun by a corporate logo-studded umbrella, or Krishna unsuccessfully impressing the conversing Model-type nude girls with playing the flute and a huge hard-on. They probably even acknowledged the fact that I particularly chose not to give any imagery of the original founder of Islam, but merely hinted at his well-being and segregated state of bliss with a yacht, happy dolphins and a bunch of beautiful and relaxed-talking women.

About ten years later, the whole topic had to be looked again for two reasons. One is that only recently I understood the full extent of deception that went on through the strategic use of religion in the successful governance of this human place. And two – I’m in the process of learning traditional painting and wanted to use the original cartoon as a blueprint to work on. As for the technique, I’m not too happy about it, but unfortunately, that’s just my present stage. I’m not as good as I want to be yet and I’m certainly someone who acknowledges his limitations. Maybe in the future I’ll do a third version. But for now (since I’m also into Numismatics lately), this is being published as the official “Muhammad Cartoon Re-strike”, or the “Jesus Cracks a Joke Re-strike”. A few things have been added and clarified that haven’t been there in the original version and by the virtue of that, even though I’m not happy with the painting technique, this version is of course, much better.

Jesus Cracks a Joke Re-strike

Alchemy

But since, as we’ve learned, it is not only Beliefs but also Intimacy that define people’s bearing and take on life, (both of them give them their ultimate ‘purpose’ – “We give people a purpose” – Mao Tse Tung), I also wanted to share with you another piece of imagery that I’ve been working on for quite a while and use it to explain some more things about our present culture and about the way how we have been led astray when it comes to see and hear things. I call this image “Alchemy” and show this in the tradition of other odd/awkward imagery that had been produced by artist who happened to be initiates to the mysteries over the ages, and of which some I have used for many draft ads and of which I’ll be talking more about, and in more depth, in our forthcoming draft issue (Issue 007 – “Pseudo Reality”).

Vatican Sculpture saying in Greek “Saviour of the World”

Two mythology / cultivation images from around the world

draft Magazine AD

Those who don’t know anything about internal alchemy or inner secrets of the body will see this image purely literally. “Huh Hu – a man is holding a naked woman by her hair while sticking two fingers into her mouth and while she’s peeing herself”. That’s their level of wisdom. And in the face of the present pest of all-round pornography and what kids are exposed to until they have their first tattoo and major sexual fuck-up, I’m happy to serve the purpose of adding a contribution to these matters and giving people something to laugh and to talk about.

Others will use their conditioned notions like Feminism, (‘installed’ into the public mind by Rockefeller and consorts after long and systematic preparations through Victorian suffrogates and hyped ‘talented’ female intellectual voices) to get their ‘feelings’ hurt.

While still others will have their chauvinist pre-conceptions satisfied.

All of them are wrong, you see. What this picture describes is simply the Alchemical process of merging Fire and Water, Sulfur and Mercury, The White Lion and the Red Eagle, a process that has been talked about in secrecy over the millennia and that had to be discerned by adepts on their own through heavily enshrouded imagery and unbearable verbal outpourings. The bottom line of such internal Alchemy is that it simply uses the friction between the opposing Yin and Yang forces that are inherently present in every human body, whether male (Yang) or female (Yin), and the present image is encoding this process into a language that I think is appropriate for today’s culturally conditioned people (There is of course an added zest of tongue-in-cheek humour that can be found a lot in my work, provided your feelings aren’t getting hurt before you get to that :). Many living beings can be born with such an Alchemical process, as well as Elixir be formed, the Elixir of Immortality to be specific, whatever that means for today’s people and however much they might jerk off and laugh about it.

So that’s Alchemy for you, then. Only fools like Isaac Newton, apparently, went down to the local drug store in order to buy their vital ingredients. Others were more certainly insightful and managed to prolong their life, staying young longer, while maybe still others have indeed managed to accomplish the Great Work, and become an Immortal. Anyone seen the Count of Saint Germain lately?

But of course, like smoking Diviner’s Sage (Salvia Divinorum), or chewing Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscara) – all of which does indeed work and the latter one seems to have played an important secret part in our Western tradition and is firmly embedded into Jewish and Christian scriptures – any of these methods are merely considered Folk traditions, or ‘small worldly paths’, among the the larger community of cultivators and their attainment statuses can in no way be compared to those of the Great Ways of the Buddha and the Dao schools, the two main cultivation systems in the world.

And that’s I think it for me. I haven’t posted any major entry for a long time, mainly because I’m busy with doing other things (writing a book on money and numismatics and learning to properly paint). And with whatever I do, I first have to clear up the meddling deities of persecution before I can get down to the tasks at hand. The next draft issue is certainly happening and I’m uploading a sneak cover preview for that on the website. There will be many things in there that you don’t easily have a chance of knowing. Masonic operations behind the last three Christian empires will be discussed, as well as Nasa deceptions and Eric Dubai’s Flat earth theory. Salt and Water will be revealed as one of Reality’s hot topics by talking about Peter Ferreras work. A rare 17th century Alchemical illustrations book will be featured. Saturn and the holographic matrix connected to the Hexagram will be touched on. And a discussion about why Psychology can’t heal you and why and where it faces its limitations in the light of much much higher truths. Which will then tie into why most new age adherents are nothing other than more NWO agents, meant to further deceive you. Tantra, yoga, mindfulness, pilates and all that. Give us a break. Even organic food and co-operatives are taking the piss on behalf of Z***, only you don’t know it and are led to believe that there are still powers who only have the best interests in mind for you, and who really want you to succeed. Succeed at what? That’s the important question and it’s called Pseudo Reality. Reality that is not Reality but a conjured up joke meant to destroy you. Not easy to swallow. But hey, why be so emotional?

Not wanting to hurt anyone’s feelings.

Over and out.

GREY ZONE

GREY ZONE
or
some thoughts on the nature of persecution

I. GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE

for a long time i’ve been thinking about putting together a solid rationale about my ‘spreading the word’ activities in public, or in other words, about my endeavours of establishing a ‘professional loophole’ to cut through the super-tight and mindbogglingly complex mudpit or spiderweb that, to mankind’s utter shamefulness, has been established, with almost everyone farcically contributing, as our notions, angles and vantage points of ‘human reality’. such an undertaking obviously involves enormous issues, reaching celestial levels as high and infernal levels as deep as counteracting the ‘methodical’ removal of organs, of lives, ideas, of gods, or the suppression and persecution of worlds, countries, philosophies, careers, individuals, universes, etc. while on the level of the merely mundane, it involves the shedding of light into the ridiculous struggle of ‘who is right and who is wrong’ that has turned out to be a kind of pivot of all human pettiness and its brainwashed, instigated arena of ‘survival of the fittest’, probably since the beginning of time. or at least since keen opted to eliminate his brother able, only to satisfy his jealousy-driven ‘desire’ to keep up appearances by wiping away that which is still pure and true from the ‘surface of the earth’. or to be more precise, to remove someone else’s above-the-line visibility for the sake of upholding a wicked, below-the-line lie.

those who i’ve managed to ‘reach’ know that i’m talking about eric berne’s group canons a lot (in the book ‘systemics’ and privately to people around me) and what an inescapable entrapment they entail for everyone feeling ‘right in their mind’ of belonging to any particular group or party ‘wholeheartedly’. for any force of destruction, this particular human flaw of ‘belonging’ makes it perfectly convenient to stir the direction of such a neatly coherent group anywhere they want to. (macchiavelli, as most of you know, teaches its manipulative top-level skill via the introduction of a secret force that is ‘giving’ the unsuspecting ‘belongers’ both a left and a right faction to fight with, thus keeping the ignorant sheep both purposeful and busy while in the end having them kiss the feet of the invisible puppet masters all the same, regardless of who those decide to let ‘win’ for the time being).

those group canons, it turns out, are also the notions that might be boxing-in mankind beyond redemption during the last kalpa’s ‘final hours’ (sounds crazy, doesn’t it? believing this or not, is up to everyone ‘individually’, unthinkably would this be a matter of ‘collectivity’, would it not?). who’d dare taking the role as a so-called ‘agitator’ in this utterly hopeless game play? isn’t the ‘nature’ of the group, like it is for any individual, the mere ‘survival’, ie carrying itself forth into the future and thus fighting off, expelling, annihilating anyone or anything threatening such a course? who’d be able to re-question the originally set-down canon when almost everyone follows along with it – wholeheartedly – towards its ‘predestined’ final destination? and even if such an agitator did come along, sacrificing themselves for a higher cause (like let’s say, suicide terrorist have been brainwashed to do), how could they stand any chance to counteract the movement of a notional wave, based on the undermined, untrue values connected with money, evolution, consumerism, commerce, art, culture, welfare, relationship, intimacy, cultivation, the divine, etc, upon which each individual’s life thread, boxed-in within this wave, is literally and totally ‘attached to’?

any ‘real change’, then, rather than being caused by a different political climate or some other surface changes of the existing framework, could only be achieved from within each individual’s mind and heart (each particle of the wave) – no? was there anything wrong with the ‘system’ as such in the first place, anyway? (systems come and go, don’t they, and are subject to phases of formation, stasis, degeneration, just like the universe itself …)

this then means, that within our being lost in delusion (trapped within the dimensional confines of particles called planets and molecules) and the inherent danger of just carrying-on the immersion and entanglement in this collective downwards wave, each individual is required to take their very own stance and position. would your spouse or your parent or your boss be able to ‘save you’ or absolve you when ‘closure’ (truth arriving at the surface) eventually arrives? would you be able to forgive them your having been ‘ruined’ while they say “sorry” and refer, in the futile attempt of a rational apology, to only having ‘followed orders’ or just ‘didn’t know any better’ themselves? if a machine that you for any variety of reasons feel is vital to be part of, causes you to do things that harm others (maybe even harm exactly those who’ve got the courage to not play an ‘active’ part in the machine) – would any the hague court simply shrug off your ‘sins’ because of the ludicrous reasoning that ‘a machine is simply a machine’? who, to be more blunt in god’s name, would be able to take the blame for your ‘not having known better’, your having been ‘unfortunately’ deceived? your, basically, ‘going against your very own conscience’? could there be any ‘graver sin’ than going against one’s own conscience?

if, then, every individual is required to take their ‘position’ within the machine, break free of all collective notional chains to choose their very own colour and shade and position, according to their most fundamental and therefore most likely ‘true’ conscience, and according to values that prove right throughout time-frames and space-frames that are universal rather than habitually-notional, the areas of grey that lie between the extremes of blackness and whiteness can be said to be the only ‘meeting point’ left for any real freedom-of-choice. or the no-where-land from which to go into the fewer and fewer available future directions. or the only reliable manifestations of an inherently infinite variety of individuals. or, maybe even going this far, the only available zone to stand on for any individual’s ‘ultimate’ future and thus ultimate, true ‘survival’.

II. SEDUCTION AND ADVERTISING

what i can see now is that ‘corruption’ (to the integrity of a given system) begins with the exchange of money or other ‘favours’ for mere visibility (and from there invariably ends with the extremes of distorted communicative ‘expressions’ like rape, theft and murder). it really seems ultimately as easy as that. i’ll give two trails of thought as an example.

a. would a naked new-born baby be required to pay (or accrue a financial liability) by the mere fact of emerging from the mother’s womb, of below-the-surface existence, into the realm of ‘us people’ walking the earth – of attaining visibility among ‘divine children’ (a quick side note: get the book ‘evolution cruncher’ if you’re still an ardent ‘believer’ of evolutionary doctrines) upon whom it is bestowed to be living and breathing under the same sun? wouldn’t anyone ‘human’ agree that by the time such a situation occurred, mankind as such really wouldn’t be ‘here’ anymore and only consisted of ‘slaves of slaves’ (maybe the antipode of the biblical ‘dreamers of dreams’)? and yet – honestly – how far away are we from an actual situation like this? and how can it be related to matters of corruption and persecution? doesn’t at the root of ‘human freedom’ lie the freedom of any worldly debt at the decisive moment of worldly visibility? and could any humane intervention ever honestly dare to put a taxation on such naked visibility? what about awkward existing canons of notional judgements through postcode and caste / class systems? what about governments either subsidising or penalising offspring? what about the emerging internet trend of being forced to pay in order to not be exposed to incorporated, machine-made ‘messages’ that are constantly snaking under our skin?

b. when eve took the bait of the ‘forbidden fruit’ in one of our greatest gnostic tales, in other words when she succumbed to the first ever recorded ‘marketing strategy’ (“thou can be like god and thou shall not truly die”), this can be said to be her own fault and she’d have to pay what she owed due to her ‘turning her back to the dao’ no matter what. but when she afterwards ‘sold the product’ to her husband also, wasn’t this kind of abusing his trust and regard for her integrity (that she’d ‘sold out’ unbeknownst to him just a moment ago) starting the whole chain reaction of later ‘wrongdoing’? of course, this lesson also teaches to not trust anyone, no matter how closely we feel that we are to them or they to us. to never, by no means, succumb to leaving the purely individual and thus safe grey zone and instead take a black or white or left or right position inside the however dazzling, money-spewing, god-making machine. a ‘group’ starts with two, doesn’t it? to me personally, it teaches that between the fact of being visible (“hey eve, you cutie, i’m a really cool snake with a rather interesting proposition”) and between hard selling (“i trick / bribe / swindle / fondle you into believing in me”) is a difference as vast as myriads of layers of heaven.

now, of course, there is nothing wrong with the concept of ‘temptation’, is there? would it not be impossible to truly ‘test’ the integrity of anyone without such a principle? on the other hand, what makes a demon king ‘righteous’? would it not be compassion (apart from their nature of incessantly probing for ever more ‘truth’) that causes demons to not overstep the line, go over to the other side and simply ‘rape’?

what kind of relationship ultimately exists between the tempter and the tempted? that’s an interesting one. could one not in a way say, in accordance with psychoanalysis, that such a relationship is in its nature ‘erotic’ or ‘sexual’ and the insertion of money or the taking and the gaining of advantage through such a transaction could be identified as the root cause for faulty / karmically burdened bloodlines, the propagation of false values and presumably lie at the heart of any kind of degeneration or corruption that undermine a given system?

so by bribing oneself into visibility on another one’s forehead or bottom through the incentive of fame, gain or other kinds of worldly ‘reward’, i feel this is overstepping the above-mentionend universal mark into indecently seducing and, i guess, also ‘raping’. furthermore, once this is achieved, the continuation of such bribery into elimination of everything else (suppression, persecution, etc) really isn’t that far away anymore. “i’ll pay you 1.000 to put my logo onto your chest. 2.000 on your forehead. 3.000 on you ass. and another 5.000 to exterminate any other brand entirely from your mind and body.”

while on the other hand, the genuine support of neighbours and friends and products, only relying on this very ‘genuine support’ that comes from truly within, remains on ‘this’ side, the grey side, and is subject not to the laws of a ‘machine’ but only to heart-to-heart transactions and its soft and grey laws of cause and effect, grace and warmth, giving and taking, receiving and warranting – even if sometimes vice and spite are getting involved. as long as there is no ‘machine’, it still seems (and i’m assuming this is the same for both you and me) all beautifully and purely righteous and ‘human’.

as another side note, should we be wanting to make even more psychoanalytical sense of the adam and eve story: perhaps in the continuation of likening temptation and seduction to sexuality and eroticism, one could regard the surrender of eve to the temptation of the devil as a cancellation of the (marriage) contract between her and adam. had adam merely seen it as only that and coped with the fact of having lost yet another ‘helpmeet’ (after his ‘sister-wife’ lilith, his ‘daughter-wife’ eve as well), he would’ve not ‘sold out’ to the same doomsday mistake that his wife sold out to and only eve on her own would’ve had to face subsequent karmic retribution through transmigration and its accompanying mortal suffering. (this little exposition is meant to shed also more light, perhaps, into the enormity of levels that the whole male / female mystery that i’ve been looking into so deeply throughout my life and work touches upon).

III. TAKING THE GREY STANCE

coming back to our original premise of group canons, deception and persecution, we’ve seen how ‘powers’ are at work that are separating us humans from the laws of heaven and from each other’s hearts via the insertion of what’s called in here a ‘machine’. psychologically, this would be achieved by abusing our being bound, karmically, to a mysterious life script. and spiritually by taking advantage of every single gap that we could possibly have left open through not studying an ‘upright law’ truthfully (judaism, buddhism, daoism, christianity, confucianism, catholicism and of course even more so all related behind-the-scenes cultivation / gnostic / scholarly studies). the machine seems (and indeed is!) inescapable, as long as we obey its laws and not step into individuality and its various shades of greyness in order to obtain true, higher teachings that can ultimately liberate us from being stuck in what’s been instilled and conditioned as a state of being ‘human’. but that’s easier said than done, isn’t it?

in the cultivation world there is the saying of “seeing but not seeing, hearing but not hearing, thinking but not thinking etc” or of shedding attachments while being fully immersed in them. shedding sentimentality while being completely soaked in it through a love affair or filial piety. shedding attachments of competition and jealousy while everyone else infringes upon your interests and gloriously advances through scheming and fighting while you’re left behind short-changed and losing. so it’s all easier said than done. but this directly relates to what is meant with grey zone and greyness. letting go of the mechanics of the wave / machine and obtaining true laws while taking our own stance towards them. although not ’agitating’ or ‘revolting’ against the system that we’re obviously a part of, we do in earnest what we’re supposed to do while at the same time connect with and relate to what is true and above or even outside of this confined system. there is of course group within group within group within group. a multidimensional cosmos. universes within universes …

when i was myself faced with the full gist of suppression and persecution towards my work (the more i ‘knew’, the less a position in society i was allocated and the more suppressed and ignored and persecuted i essentially became), the path that i was required to walk included finding available loopholes in the machine that would allow me to step forward into plain visibility. at the same time, since at the core of my work was ‘writing’, i was required to analyse, reflect upon and minutely record what i was going through as well as what was going through me at the same time.

as the machine was particularly set-up to regard and postulate as ‘visible’ or ‘existing’ only what the influence of media and the power of money hype the masses of ‘sheep’ into believing that it is (‘based’ on warped group canons of corrupt academia, fake expert opinions, purported critical acclaims, hustling must-see successes, blabla, the list could go on and on) there was hardly any room left for righteous work to ‘survive’ in such an ill framework. so the challenge was as follows: how to side-step the isolating grid of ‘media’ and come to ‘reach’ people directly? how to be still active and visible in a structure where supposedly without ‘money’ or the ‘helping hand’ of hand-picked ‘installed’ authority one is left to vegetate along the fringes of ignorance, scape-goating, poverty, bad-mouthing, scolding, jealousy, taking advantage, intellectual rape, cultural negligence as well as the usual power games and the almost self-ironic, cynical wallowing in pettiness and mediocrity, etc?

“the media is the message”, came to be known during my media art studies. like so many messages, mcluhan’s confident claim turned out to be also just a bubble of hot air. media without a message, does it exist? maybe, but what would be the point? a message surely requires a medium or a ‘carrier’ to be carried along.

messages are infinitely manifold, aren’t they, and they can be ‘created’ at will, at any time. as brain scientists are aware nowadays, thoughts are already messages, with matter emanating in the form of waves being their medium or carrier. whom or where do they reach? not only secret services ‘know’ about telepathy.

furthermore, messages are alive, i believe, and this is in accordance with what the buddha school says about all matter in the cosmos.

what is the difference between a sales message and a benign message? here we’re approaching again eve and temptation territory. is it only the intelligible company logo in the bottom right hand corner? what if the message is decipherable only by the ‘subconscious’ or the ‘initiated’ and hidden for everyone else? what if the message is subliminal or underhanded? what if the message is bold and true and sharp but at its core also graceful and solemn and ‘shockingly’ doesn’t actually ‘sell’ anything?

in the world that we live in, i think everyone would agree that messages have taken on the form of annoying noise persistently surrounding us. without meditation or a proper ‘shelter’, i guess, they’ve become inescapable and all-intrusive. come they not from papers and billboards, they’d be exchanged and sold as notions and opinions by friends and family and partners. who is right and who is wrong? what do we know anyway? what to talk about? when all is said and done, who truly, honestly believes that the whole purpose of human existence lies in the rewards and promises attained through the dogged execution of fundamentally laughable group canons?

is ‘art’ a benign message or trying to sell us something? is literature that has been filtered through a tightly kept agency system genuine knowledge and benevolent philosophical truth or is it hoodwinking me to the ‘other side’ through the intellectual preparation of a stir-fry of bullshit?

the grey zone in whose shade i was eventually meant to walk was what street art and street kids were doing ‘innocently’ on the one hand, and what high-end advertising and branding agencies were attempting on the other. my former path included getting to know both worlds, as vastly as they might be apart from each other, quite a bit. so my foray into the grey zones of visual presence amidst a closed-circuit machinery incessantly churning out deceptive group canons of fake reality was as follows:

step one was to find a quick and elegant way of leaving my messages in public places. the ‘crisis’ offered the timely backdrop of many abandoned or empty spaces that seemed more than perfectly suitable to serve as a carrier or medium.

step two was making sure that none of those messages would cause any tangible damage. blue tacking was the starting point. they should rather be casually left behind than methodically affixed. they should be able to be easily taken off by suppressors, cleaners, persecutors or the simply ‘offended’ without leaving any (or at least as few as possible) stains or traces.

step three was to walk a fine line with any material that i subsequently produced between somewhat sales messages, benign or graceful messages and sharp wake-up call messages. in short, to produce what i feel is ‘good art’.

step four was to rather than widely scatter mass-produced offset material, to selectively leave as presents hand-crafted pieces of art, to be regarded as sweet and / or mindful ‘gifts’ other than self-indulgent nuisances.

step five was to eventually ‘identify’ equally grey ‘supporters’ and thus give everyone whose paths i happen to cross a chance to take their stance by saying “hello” with cheeky gestures of ‘sticking’. while in turn it gave me a chance to ‘isolate’ and subsequently avoid those sites / individuals / entities / institutions who’d react to my ‘contacts’ negatively.

step six was to generally not do this in any underhanded way but to offer the courtesy of allowing a tracing back to the root from where those ‘gifts’ are coming from. (this was also ‘tempting’ everyone with the ‘freedom’ to persecute the already persecuted, should they feel inclined to take such a position).

step seven was to go about distribution without any stress or urgency but to do it whenever ‘fate’ called upon strolling any particular part of town (or out-of-town or any other town).

step eight was to establish a ‘brand’ which wouldn’t need any logo or particular origin in the long run but would represent more like an entirely different framework of thoughts and values where anyone could eventually get involved without the need to ever be an ‘official’ part of it. there were neither invisible nor open contracts and any support could at any point be as casually dropped as it could be endured, embraced or openly cherished.

step nine was enjoying the grey support that i eventually received (which turned out to be by far more than expected) and work through the pangs of anger, suppression and persecution that also occurred occasionally. as a general rule, i never took anything personal and never got worked up into some kind of obsession or frenzy while at the same time any boldness in my approaches was always left subject to considerate rationality and artful humour. “sticking but not sticking”. detachment was the key to everything that i did, anyway.

IV. CLOSURE AHEAD

while jotting down the above lines i noticed that i’d started to somewhat slide into past tense here and there. considering the present unfoldment of events, it is probably true that my work in this regard has been done. we shall see.

in my heart i feel that i did find enough available gaps in the machine, and that i did achieve timely delivery of a message of ‘truth’ and upright ‘reasoning’ through successfully bypassing the complex web of lies and deceit – to eventually reach out to other kindred hearts and spirits that have had the wisdom, foresight and sharpness or for a long time even been ‘longing’ to hear. the rest, i guess, is up to everyone themselves.

after having assimilated myself to the great law of dafa for many years now, the jesus or messiah stuff that so many people have been programmed to believe in / pray for / hope for doesn’t seem to exist at all like they thought. and even if such magical / mystical figures would manifest at some stage, they’d sure to be fake just by the mere fact of having the ‘unrighteous’ audacity of claiming to be a / the new prodigious ‘saviour’. or by even going so far as to show-off any powers that would leave ‘ordinary’ people no other choice than the ‘gnashing of teeth’ that jesus in his time talked about or a more ‘modern’ televised jaw-dropping ‘awe and submission’.

instead, in closing this christmas 2012 exposition on the dangers of groups, crooked canons and the inevitability of subsequent persecution, i’d like to paraphrase from dafa that everyone has to pay themselves for whatever karmic debts they have accrued over the course of their present and past ‘incarnations’. within the dao of the great law, no one ‘is allowed’ to do it for them.

and that regardless of which saint or enlightened ones who’ve ever come down here to ‘save’ people, they’ve merely established a culture for what cultivation or the ‘law’ are really about. and for what exactly might be happening when the final moment arrives, the end of the end, the closure and the secret reason for the creation of this particular realm / dimension of the cosmos – heaven, earth, underworld or the so-called three realms.

CHILDREN

the matrix booklet is now also available for portable readers on amazon. very exciting. i’ve never found myself having come up with a product that would’ve caused such defense mechanisms in people. but i just love the cute little thing and very much enjoyed re-editing over its details.

looking at it with a bit of the distance that comes with time (i started working on it back in 2004), the underlying content is, i suppose, fairly devastating to all those living in complete denial. as my poet friend paul said the other day, “all the ugliness and ignorance in this world can be brought down to child abuse, really. everything else are just the glittering sparkles on the surface of a lake.”

*   *   *

it’s £ 1 £/ $/ € (plus vat, strangely enough for ebooks!) depending on where you live. i’ve also used this opportunity to experiment a bit with pricing policies. generally i feel that books shall keep their value, preferrably increase them (they do, as abebooks and some of the specialised vintage market-stalls run by true ‘gnostics’ prove). the tendency to inflate them with ridiculous print runs and distribution and marketing frenzies obviously can’t do justice to the true value of knowledge and wisdom. with ebooks, the situation changes only insofar as there are no print and dsitribution costs but the value of information still stays the same. so to stay about 20 – 50 % below the hardcopy sales price makes a lot of sense to me.

on the other hand, some products are just special and perhaps can be easily priced rather metaphorically in such an electronic environment. that’s why i’ve chosen the 1 ‘unit’ option for now. let’s see …

FAKE DEATH

oh well, i’m putting this online because i feel this is somehow a key piece in my illustration work. the coincidence is quite mad, as i’ve just the other day joked with a friend about staging my own death (whilst having my website miraculously updating itself, hahaha). and two weeks later i’m getting this commission from australia asking me to come up with an editorial piece for an aticle exactly looking into both the ridiculousness as well sincerity of doing something as crazy as this. anyway. i’ve aged quite a bit in the image, but who knows, in a couple of years time? hope you enjoy …
