Resisting the Rituals

Eros and Jupiter in the Gotthard Tunnel


Alex Tsakiris invited me on to the legendary Skeptiko show, which we actually taped a couple months ago. As it happens, the discussion we had is more relevant today than it was then. It's especially more relevant after the string of very highly charged ritual events we've seen in the past couple of weeks. 





Alex and I discuss a number of topics, including my series on Lucifer's Technologies and Project MKOFTEN, which again I believe are perhaps even more relevant today than they were when they were posted. 

We talk at length about the Satanic Temple and its tireless efforts to gain access to schoolchildren through various programs and publicity stunts. We talk about the objective reality of good and evil in an animistic world. We talk about a lot more besides.



Most importantly, I spell out my philosophy on understanding the Never-Ending Ritualism and its historical context. It's important to have a grasp on the historical context of these symbols and these messages because I believe we are on the cusp of the next phase of the program- in which these increasingly audacious presentations will become more explicit and self-explanatory. 



I believe there will be a very seductive and appealing pitch on the backend of this, something that a great many people will find very hard to resist, especially this historically-illiterate new class of witches and magicians.



In order to offer a counterargument you need to understand the messages being conveyed, their historical contexts and the implications for the future that history teaches us. If you throw words like "Lucifer" or "Illuminati" around, the game will be lost before you even take the field.

  1. Here's a preliminary response (I would have to listen to the thing to check) but if you are suggesting that pre-civilized people were animists (or that humans simply are) I would contest that.
    And I can back that up of course.
    Also, it should be very well defined what exactly is meant when that word is being used.

    1. On that note, small children have been shown to know perfectly well the difference between living and artificial, even as they "bond" with their toy.
      Yet another natural ability that "adults" insist must be buried alive.

      There's 'agency', and then there's agency..
      True agency must always come from the body and can never be apart from the (bodily) living experience


      This book makes for some interesting food for thought: Provided one can actually think (for him/herself)..

    The clip, featured above, sees the two Marvel Comics legends discussing some interesting and unearthed details from their time creating iconic characters under the Marvel umbrella. The two certainly aren't in agreement about certain aspects of writing dialogue in the clip, and Sean Howe of Marvel Comics: The Untold Story compares it to "a heavy talk between an ex-husband and an ex-wife." It's an actual interview from a radio show in 1987!

  4. Chris, thank you so much for posting that link. Ever since I saw other people trying to explain the symbolism in the Gotthard Base Tunnel ritual, I wanted to hear or read your analysis.

  5. I think that when we're looking at these societal-mass ritual workings, we need to take into consideration the nature of rituals' relationship to society. Rupert Sheldrake has a take on this worth checking out:

    https://www.sheldrake.org/research/morphic-resonance/part-ii-society-spirit-ritual-morphic-resonance-and-the-collective-unconscious

    Quote:

    "In general, rituals are highly conservative in nature and must be performed in the right way, which is the same way they have been performed in their past. If rituals involve language, the most important of them use sacred languages. For example, Brahmanic rituals in India use Sanskrit, a language which is no longer spoken except by Brahmins, and the Sanskrit phrases must be pronounced the correct way in order for the rituals to be effective. We find a similar practice in a Christian context. The Coptic church in Egypt dates back to ancient times when Coptic was the spoken language; so in modern Cairo, you can attend a Coptic service and the language you hear is the otherwise dead language of ancient Egypt. The survival of ancient Egyptian in the Coptic liturgy was one of the important clues that enabled the unraveling of the language of ancient Egypt with the help of the Rosetta Stone. Similarly, the Russian Orthodox church uses Old Slavic, and, until recently, the Roman Catholic church used Latin. There are hundreds of such examples.

    Ritual acts must be performed with the correct movements, gestures, words, and music throughout the world. The same pattern is found from one country to another as participants perform the ritual in the same way it has been performed countless times in the past. When people are asked why they do this, they frequently say that this enables them to participate with their ancestors or predecessors. So rituals have a kind of deliberate and conscious evocation of memory, right back to the first act. If morphic resonance occurs as I think it does, this conservatism of ritual would create exactly the right conditions for morphic resonance to occur between those performing the ritual now and all those who performed it previously. The ritualized commemorations and participatory re-linking with the ancestors of all cultures might involve just that; it might, in fact, be literally true that these rituals enable the current participants to reconnect with their ancestors (in some sense) through morphic resonance."

  6. Let's see. So we have a "neverending" problem. That we should "resist forever". For both sides that must be the best news ever!

    The problem can actually be solved though. By not helping its cause in any possible way, by not giving it anything at all.
    It would starve if enough people did that. And even if it can not be solved 'for all', then it can still be solved to a great extent, or even completely, at a personal level (provided one would invest all that energy into knowing what ís real).

    It's interesting that the "resistance" side of the "conflict" will never tell you that! And that no one ever asks..too..

    War is "as addicting as heroin".

    1. The problem is the cycle of rebirth/samsara, and to all intents and purposes it is neverending. However, Hsapiens is a problem solver par excellence.
      In other words, there is no option to resist - we are already the resistance.

    2. Being natural resisters it seems that the success of group resistance is to use that natural resistance in beneficial ways. If the group's use of X amount of energy requires those opposing them to use multiple X amounts of energy in response, then the group using less "resistance energy" wins. There are probably some esoteric formulas for this effect and it may be a part of these various rituals, and of those who oppose them.

      Best real life example: notice how much frustration a skilled passive aggressive person can cause a larger group with very little effort on their part. There is a good reason this strategy works. As above, so below and all that. Perhaps some rituals are designed to induce "blocks" of some sort (MK anyone?) or cause other engergy imbalances.

  7. There's been a lot for everyone to unpack lately. Especially if they don't have a world view that's calcified by the carcinogenic globalist "culture", which as McKenna said resembles nothing so much as an airport arrival concourse.

    Trying to parse what all this means (unless it's just the kids in the design department LARPing their D&D inspired hodge podge of syncretic occultism) having to juggle the astrology aspect, the ritual magick underpinnings of secret societies (which may not be as ancient as they think, but in another sense may be even more ancient than they think), the Magonian aspect (what are these people actually making obeisance to?), the weird Nazi alt-history stuff (what was "The Bell" anyway?) In short you need to bring together Jacques Valeé, Gordon White, Peter J Carroll and probably J.R. "Bob" Dobbs to figure out where this is going. And the way we do our science in the material age makes interdisciplinary effort difficult at best. Better late than never though. If the Screwheads had it all figured out, we'd have been utterly enslaved already and not having this conversation.

    1. True. But then again, the "Screwheads" as you call them have been up to all kinds of things relating to these matters. Or narratives, if you will. Really, when you get down to the nuts & bolts involved, how much difference is there between narrative & ritual? At the very least, they reinforce each other's impact. DARPA has been at this for a while now:

      https://www.ieet.org/index.php/IEET2/more/4934

      Quote:

      "But now DARPA wants to take this further and make it more scientific and systematic. They recently put out a request for research proposals in the areas of:

      Quantitative analysis of narratives

      Understanding the effects narratives have on human psychology and its affiliated neurobiology.

      Modeling, simulating, and sensing-especially in stand-off modalities-these narrative influences.

      DARPA would like to revolutionize the study of narrative influence by “advancing narrative analysis and neuroscience so as to create new narrative influence sensors, doubling status quo capacity to forecast narrative influence.”

      This is pretty heavy stuff. They’re asking scientists to “take narratives and make them quantitatively analyzable in a rigorous, transparent and repeatable fashion.” Once such a system is put into place, the Pentagon will be able to detect terrorists or other non-state actors who have been indoctrinated with a particular ideology or worldview, and then respond with a counter-message of its own. As Dawn Lim notes in Wired, “They can also target groups vulnerable to terrorists’ recruiting tactics with their own counter-messaging.”

      Think they ever intended to limit it to terrorism?

      https://www.wired.com/2011/10/darpa-science-propaganda/

      Quote:

      ""Stories are important in security contexts," Darpa said in an Oct. 7 solicitation for research proposals. Stories "change the course of insurgencies, frame negotiations, play a role in political radicalization, influence the methods and goals of violent social movements." The desire to study narratives has been simmering for a while in the Defense Department. A Darpa workshop in April to discuss the "neurobiology of narratives" added momentum to this project.

      In the first 18-month phase of the program, the Pentagon wants researchers to study how stories infiltrate social networks and alter our brain circuits. One of the stipulated research goals: to "explore the function narratives serve in the process of political radicalization and how they can influence a person or group’s choice of means (such as indiscriminant violence) to achieve political ends."

      Needless to say, DARPA aren't the only ones. The alt.right took a real DIY approach to this subject & look at what they achieved (& with a much smaller budget)--from the VICE Essentials show "Cyberwar". Seriously, everyone should watch this. Welcome to the future:

    2. " how much difference is there between narrative & ritual? "

      A very good question I keep asking myself as I note the rote nature of so much of the 'deep state' playbook. How come each CIA destabilization of a recalcitrant country, each school massacre, each scandal all seems to be greeted with the same response by the Mighty Wurlitzer? Almost word for word since the Clinton era.

    3. We will indeed require the intercession of J.R. "BOB" Dobbs before this is through, perhaps several times. Know that he will strike a bargain with us, and there will be a price to pay - but, it will be a price far less exacting than the alternative, and we get to know the terms in advance.

    4. @David
      The alt-right is controlled opposition. They're at least three steps removed from the real culture creators, I would know a thing or two about it... In what sense does a character like Milo Yiannopoulis, a homosexual jew gay-married to a black man, represent a standard-bearer for right wing resistance to culture wrecking corporate globalism? He sure seems like the pièce de résistance to me. As usual, they take all our work and try to hammer out a tame version for public consumption in whatever chthonic basement houses their PR department, but there's no substitute for the real thing and it shows.

  8. I saw this news story today about Mike Oldfield's tune used in the movie 'The Exorcist' and remembered you writing about that tune in a recent post Chris.

    "Informe Semanal - the title is Spanish for Weekly Report - has been running for 43 years on national television.
    Last week it focused on the Catalan crisis.
    At about four and a half minutes in to the programme, Mr Puigdemont's clip came on, edited with Tubular Bells underneath."

  9. In the Skeptiko interview you mentioned the rise of slasher films and Roger Ebert's comment regarding kids being traumatized watching Night of the Living Dead, eluding to maybe kids are being intentionally targeted as part of a larger nefarious plot. I always try to counter larger conspiratorial thinking with skepticism, and I mostly think that movie and the rise of horror in general was just artistic exploration continuing to explore all facets of imagination, including the darker territories, but with unprecedented effect due to advancing media technologies--and I think there was (still is) a slow learning curve of parents and mental health practitioners to realize just how powerful such imagery can be on the subconscious, especially of kids, and how it affects people negatively.

    That being said, after thinking about it for a short while I started to recall news coverage of incidences in movie theaters "accidentally" showing horror movie previews before children's G rated movies. Then I read this unsettling blog post: https://medium.com/@jamesbridle/something-is-wrong-on-the-internet-c39c471271d2 and now I don't know what to think!

    1. It's likely that those weird videos are just spam generated to attempt to make money off Google/YouTube pay-per-click programs. A lot of bad parents just park their kids in front of YouTube completely unattended and the kids will sit and watch and those videos will rack up views. Making them look weird, mesmerizing, and cartoonish helps them slip into kids areas of YouTube or get picked up as suggestions after legitimate kids videos.

      Never ever leave your kids unattended with YouTube or any other social media type platform.

      Not totally dismissing the idea that there's more to it, but I doubt it. There is tons and tons and tons of spam on social media these days. Much of it is computer generated.

    2. Thank you for bringing up this topic (creepy kid's shows on YouTube). I was going to bring it up myself as it appears to tie in with what Chris has mentioned previously and specifically with Night of the Living Dead--as you wrote above. Jasun Horsely at Auticulture has written quite a bit about the exact same topics. In fact, I have been waiting for both Chris and Jasun to comment on it.

    3. Certain sex sections of CL are full of bots generating content to mine personal info, CC numbers, etc. One bot-project however looked like a nationwide honey-trap to be used for future blackmail/control purposes. That project seems to have dialed back considerably, or perhaps morphed to something less obvious, fwiw.

  12. Hi Chris

    I'm messaging over your latest blog post because I couldn't find an email address or anywhere else to send you a message. So, as Jerry Maguire, if this has to be the place...

    Basically I just wanted to say that I'm pretty inspired the work that you are doing here on your blog. I've followed your work avidly for a few months now, after listening to a number of conversations between yourself, Greg Carlwood and Gordon White, who also have been a breathe of fresh air to me.

    I don't have any practical or academic background in 'the esoteric' or 'the conspiratorial', it's all pretty new to me and rather weird. But I have had a burning interest in these themes for a few years, and the questions they pose about the nature of our reality and what some of us are doing with it.

    As I think you've said in no many words, perhaps (almost) everything you've written in this blog will turn out to be B.S., but that isn't really the point. The point is the questioning, the patterns that emerge, and the way one's thinking about the world around us changes as a result.

    Anyway, I'm a filmmaker based in the UK and am interested in making some kind of doc/short around this subject matter.....a terrible, terrible idea I know! But I'm called to do something and I've come to you first. And yes, I have seen the amount of shit put out on YouTube around this area - and no I don't want to make anything like that. But I think there's an opportunity to pose these questions to viewers in some visual form, I think I'd like to pick your brain on the subject a bit.

    Anyway, keep up the great work and it would be great to hear from you if you get time.

    And a quick poke at the anonymous bloggers who find this particular blog tiresome, or over-reaching, or whatever else, don't read it. Go do something else. Simple. Let us enjoy some well-researched ramblings on the nature of our strange little world.

    Many thanks

  14. CK,

    Now that you've identified the Problem if you want a solution to spread and work you should get together with like minded peeps to hammer out an easy to understand Solution.

    Your investigations imho are very involved and required probably years of personal experiences...

    Kind of like the problem that the Dalai Lama has pointed out with his Solution to his Problem: not everyone can spend years of study and isolation etc necessary to learn his techniques.

    Good thing you have access to the Internet so you can find peeps with the right talents and inclinations.

    As always I enjoy your riffs, even if I can't quite follow them sombunall of the time.

    Yer convivial sentient,
