A Demon-Haunted World After All


Do you come here OFTEN?

I don't exactly understand the mechanics of spellcraft and I'm not sure anyone else does either. Is it simply the power of suggestion? Is it a kind of mind control? Is it somehow based in non-supernatural but super-normal psychic powers?

I don't know and to be honest, I don't much care. I don't really worry too much the exact science of microprocessors when I use the Internet. I'm just interested in the results.





.................

Kind of the same when it comes to demons. Is it all just a mass delusion? Is it purely a psychic phenomenon? Is it some kind of mind control as well? I don't know that either but I do know that when you dump enough evil on a populace it tends to have an effect, whether it's evil actions, evil symbols or evil narratives.

A lot of folks have been asking me about this new Sabrina series and to be honest I've been avoiding it. I'm very much familiar with the comic series it's based on and a post on it has been sitting in the queue for months now.
.................
All I can say for now is that it's very much a sign of the times; a cute and harmless cartoon (and later TV series) retooled with the blackest of black magic, blood magic, human sacrifice and all the rest of it.
.................

I'm just going to go on the record and predict it's probably not going to have a salutary effect on the collective consciousness, given how much evil and mental illness is bubbling beneath the surface already.
.................



I spent a lot of time talking about these types of things on the Occulture podcast. Now that my brain is nearly totally free from a ten-year bit in a pharmaceutical prison cell I'm happy to say that I've finally begun to get my interviewee mojo back and am able to once again approach these things with a relatively clear mind and a minimum of brain fog and annoying verbal tics. 

Do check out more Occulturey goodness here and think about dropping a few ducats in the Occulture Patreon.


UPDATE: Predictably, the ever-straining agenda breaks from its leash. Story here.


SYNC UPDATE: Another (demonic) mass-shooting event in Thousand Oaks, less than ten minutes from where Jack Kirby lived.

  5. Slight SPOILER WARNING!!!!!

    The Satanic Temple was major pissed that The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina used their now iconic Baphomet ministering to onlooking kiddies as a set design piece for the fictional Hidden Arts Academy i.e. witch school of that series.

    https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/satanic-temple-suing-netflix-sabrina-statue-design-750868

    They even went and brought a formula lawsuit. Blah not even a hex they really most just be into Satanic LARP. The lawsuit it's probably going nowhere. Legally it will be hard to claim copyright infringement on a public statue that's meant to be seen by people. Netflix may give the Satanic Temple an out of court settlement just to shut them up.

    3. I don't know, nowadays people seem to get copyright infringement of almost anything. Hey, so many of my Internet searches give me some stuff is out of the search because of copyright infringement, that by now I've stopped assuming that whatever I was searching must be onto something at least a little juicy if I get one of those notices. And did you ever hear anything about the "Johny Jonhy yes papa" viral video? They took it down because of copyright infringement with zero good reasons to claim that.

    4. CLK's comment about the Satanic Temple got me thinking: one of the very few constants among different Satanist movements (from the After School Satan Clubs back to the Presidio Scandal, back to the Black Masses of Nineteenth-Century France, back to the witch narratives of the Reformation Era) has been their desire for access to the children of others.

      Apart from that, it's striking how chameleon-like Satanism has been. The standard MO seems to be to preach a real Satan to theists and a symbolic Satan to nontheists; and (publicly, when possible; or at least to low-level members) teach an ethos that pretty much fits whatever the current social mores, as actually *practised*, already are.

      Hence, the Satan of Nineteenth-Century France was a real being who could grant boons to his worshippers, and who wanted them to engage in Free Love and Anti-Clericalism; LaVey's Satan was a symbol that taught the philosophy of Ayn Rand (and consider that the co-founder of the atheistic Church of Satan, Michael Aquino, just a few years later, founded a church dedicated to the worship of the One True God, Set; one church to appeal to those with a belief in the supernatural, one for those without); the Satanic Temple worships a symbol that can mean whatever anyone wants it to mean, and teaches everyone to be standard Social Justice Warriors. (Not to multiply examples, but it's darkly comical to see LaVey writing circa 1970 that men needed to be more masculine, women more feminine, and that there was little room for overlap...and then, in the 90s, embrace androgynous bisexual Marilyn Manson as the most public face of the Church of Satan.)

      Of course, none of these things is really well symbolized by Satan. The French should have been worshipping Aphrodite; LaVey, Mars and Venus; and the Satanic Temple, Prometheus. But the one other thing they have in common: the insistence that rituals X,Y, and Z must be practised.

      I suppose that if someone were to found the Church of Khadir, which required adherents to tithe to me and sign over power of attorney to me, it would matter little if my acolytes thought I was a real person, a slick marketing ploy thought up by the Board of Directors of the Church, or just a nebulous symbol of the noblest human aspirations...so long as they kept giving me power (in this example, in the form of wealth), and the right to direct their affairs to my advantage. And I think that may be the key to understanding why Satanism seems to try so hard to be all things to all men.

      Or, at least, that's one man's conjecture. As always, CLK, keep up the stellar work (and excellent interview)!

  6. The only true spiritual journey is the one that takes place within the self.
    What is the self?
    Not this digital version; copy/paste 'self'.
    You spiral out only to understand that the real path is inward.
    Water flows back into it's proverbial drain; through a 'gate' we call a black hole to??

    Why am I writing this obvious nonsense?
    Because it is not and I have been there, saw/experienced it.
    It was beautiful actually; pure energy.
    So to me what 'states' itself through various methodologies is moot.
    Simplified yes; for that I apologize.
    We exist here in the shadow; there is another expression.

  10. They certainly made a big visual environment of the 4 Malkuth colours.
    TCAoS was pretty dull. It had many amusing moments, but the over-all feel was... Off. I think the best episode was the Nightmare.

    I admit I was a little distracted by mental imagery of Missy and the new Doctor going at it like scissors.

    I fear this journey down the tree is intended to take things to the qlifa, and we all majorly lubelessly buggered.

    Yeah... That series is completely about defilement of innocence, but, as usual, presenting it as necessary to growth. Dismantling something and rebuilding moar better is healthy, Sabrina's journey is like a slow psi-rape and program of replacement of core features of selfhood, with bad things.

    I guess this is what some people wish upon us all.

  11. Hey Chris, I couldn't get into the show either, the dramatic dark turn set off my spidey sense but my wife is pretty into it, though she admits that she doesn't know why she’s so hooked.

    Chris, you mentioned in the podcast that you've done a lot dream analysis. I've been keeping dream journals for years but I've struggled with getting some direction as to how analyse them. Could you recommend any books or authors to assist with dream analysis?

    Replies
    1. That's a good question, Brent. My views have evolved quite a bit on the topic. I find now the best tool for dream analysis is free association. They're your dreams so I believe it's best to start with what the symbols may mean to you. I'm actually quite skeptical now about dream dictionaries and so on.

  12. Actually most people missed the earlier scene (3rd or 4th episode) where Sabrina and the other 3 bitches, sorry I mean witches incite 4 mean guys into the mine to punish them for bullying, and queue a pretty racy sex scene as each witch including Sabrina straddle the dudes and hump them. Sabrina was not yet sixteen in that episode. I remembered thing “WTF??!!!”

    1. But that scene turned out to be a mind game where it was seen from the four jocks POV.
      We soon find out that they were humping each other and not the girls.
      They still had their underpants on so maybe dry humping would be more accurate.
      Still, it was a pretty racy sex scene though for a show such as this.

    1. You said it, D. And it's all so unnecessary. To me it speaks to a profound lack of imagination. But we can't have a young witch doing positive things or exploring new realities or something, can we? Making stories like that requires creativity and you know, mental effort.

    3. Positive ideas are hard, D. It's hard to do something than pretend you're rebellious and angry. This is something I noticed since I was a kid. I know there are probably a lot of 80s metal fans here but having cut my teeth on 70s hard rock I often found that stuff so negative and one-dimensional. Not all, mind you. But that's my problem with so much metal- you need to paint with other colors besides shades of black.

    But it's a darn good sleeping pill. I've tried to stay awake watching for the last five or six nights. Based on ease of falling asleep, I'd say each episode is about the same as a scored 5mg Xanax. At this rate the first season should keep me slumbering for a month or so. The only side effect I noticed is my dreams are more boring and repetitive than usual.

  17. This reminds me as a kid in the UK back in the late 70s to 80s, a lot of children's shows and books were obsessed with witchcraft and folklore. Children of the Stones, Moon Stallion, Owl Service (based on Alan Garner's wonderful novel), and the Play Today series were all aimed at children and delved deeply into pagan/psuedo-pagan/occult themes, however done much more effectively and with better writing, in my opinion. It sourced from a tradition that was uniquely British, whatever that may be (albeit fantasized to a degree). Also, much, MUCH less sexualized, but, hey, it's British.

    Sabrina and the recent uprising of similar shows in the US seem to be mining more from the tradition that's uniquely American, LaVeyan Satanism and all it's influence. Though, I don't think we can deny the impact the Process Church has had an all of this in some ways, particularly on the Satanic Temple. Though the DeGrimstones hailed from the UK, they no doubt had the strongest influence in the US over time.

    Also, completely agree on Miranda. Eowyn was my favourite character in the LoTR movies because of Otto, and I'm not too thrilled about her recent choice of role.

  19. I thought the show was really dull from start to finish no matter what any clickbait article will tell you. It could pretty much be summed up as a Satanic Harry Potter in Riverdale, but that might make it sound more interesting than it actually is -- Sabrina is the chosen one, Roz is Hermione, Suzie is Ron, the devil is Voldemort, etc. And I highly doubt you're going to have impressionable minds flocking to be the devil's concubine after watching the show because it makes witchcraft and devil-worship look like the lamest most boring thing ever. Initially, I thought the idea of having a show where the witch lore is based on all that middle ages church propaganda could be interesting, but it wasn't. It's pretty much just like any other teen show with a few extra horror tropes thrown in for shits and gigs.

  22. Recent (last month) episode of American Horror Story featured an appearance by Anton LaVey:

    https://www.thewrap.com/ahs-apocalypse-anton-lavey-black-pope-church-satan-actually-real-person/

    Maybe it was intended as an homage to Rosemary's Baby, but still...

    “American Horror Story” is at its best when it’s having fun, and the “Return to Murder House” episode of “Apocalypse” has one of the most fun scenes of the season when it introduces Anton LeVay (Carlo Rota) and his two Cardinals of the Church of Satan (Kathy Bates and Naomi Grossman). They’ve come to said Murder House to perform a ritual to set Michael Langdon (Cody Fern) on the path to becoming the Antichrist.

    During the ritual, they sacrifice a young woman (Emily Mest), with LaVey reaching inside her body while she’s still alive and pulling out her heart. Which Langdon then takes a big bite out of, triggering a cartoonish devil shadow behind him."

    Fun for the whole family...Also, author of said article needs to do their homework when it comes to Satanism.

      I would like to hope that the eventual total meltdown of the 'real' is what is really being addressed here.
      So is 'Fantasy Land' worth it or not?
      And just what exists beyond it?
      There is another 'possibility' that exists; in very close proximity to 'this'.
      Very possibly just another 'program' seeking it's own survival.
      Hard to know; too many variables.

  26. Yeah... The occult community is pretty much raving about this show. But it made me uneasy from the start. I mean, if Jason Miller hisself says he's literally taking notes because the magic is so workable, then why is it aimed at teenagers? And despite that, they still pronounce Samhain wrong (a pet peeve of many), and don't seem to have asked themselves whether the Baphomet statue would be free to use as a prop. It all seems fishy to me. Not even starting on the finale and what it implies for the themes next season.

    2. The satanic BS comment wasn't aimed at you Chris, I was just stating for the record that I personally think satanism is a load of BS.
      Not to say people on this planet don't get sucked into it, just like Fundamentist Christians and other BS religions get sucked into mostly mythological and damaging beliefs.
      There is power in mythology, but still, someone has to tell the kids at some point that Santa (or Satan) ain't a real entity and that hell isn't a real place that your soul burns in forever.
      Not to say that there aren't evil entities out there that will jump in to fill a void to match the darkness and naivete of idiots that muck around with forces they don't understand.
      Those people are as dumb as someone who thinks they can walk into a lion's cage and pat the pretty kitty.
      The lion might not be satan, but it's going to feel like it is satan when it starts ripping them apart for their stupidity.
      Although they could get lucky and the lion just sees them as a playmate ... until it gets hungry that is.
      You are right though Chris that on a Jungian "unconscious collective" principal that if enough people start pissing and shitting in the collective pool that we will all be swimming in a sewer pretty quickly.
      People who believe that they can make "deals with the devil" at the crossroads and that everything will turn out smelling like roses in their life are probably in for a devil of a time with that mindset though.
      When you play mind games like that, the mind has a way of f#cking you up in the end, I believe anyway.
      Devil, or no devil.
      You're doing fine work Chris and I think I see where you are coming from and I ain't knocking your work.
      And I agree with you that people shouldn't muck around with dark shit that they really know nothing about.
      Anyway, time to feed my cat.

  32. Watching the first episode of Sabrina I could see where the scriptwriters were fishing their ideas from.
    For instance where the "dyke" gets punched out by the jocks is very reminiscent of Hannah Gadsby's personal story she tells in her stand-up (not so much comedy show) 'Nanette', which is available to watch on Netflix (well available in Australia on Netflix, not sure about the rest of the world and how Netflix operate).
    And while I found 'Nanette' interesting to watch, as a "straight white(?) male" who doesn't go around punching and raping women I found it all a bit condescending to fall into the same comedic trap Hannah seems to despise when generalizing other groups, such as "Gays" and "women".
    I get where Hannah is coming from, but I found Joe Rogen's and Ricky Gervais' new stand-up shows (also on Netflix) somewhat of a counter-balance to what Hannah was saying in her show.
    All three shows a worth a watch and a pondering over I think.

    2. Well, it is a bit like getting your balls ripped off by a wild kangaroo, but 'Nanette' is worth a watch, as is Ricky's 'Humanity' and Joe Rogan's 'Strange Times'.

  34. Shooting took place within 20 miles of an air force base, just like all the other headliners this year (and last) Either there are a shit-ton of air force bases in our country or it’s a coincidence or it’s something synchronized.

  35. Chris, Sabrina is made by the same people that came out with the Archie comics. This season in Riverdale it has had a lot of pentagrams and summoning circle type symbolism with the current plot line about "Griffins and Gargoyles", an obvious stand-in for Dungeons and Dragons. Archie and gang are getting sucked into the game to an extent that people are LARPing... and dying. Very dark. Seems to fit in with Sabrina. Wonder if there will be some cross-over episodes.

  36. Chris, so you have us down at another river, The Severin, Severin in the fucking dark to meet Venus! She’s In Furs and wearing some oh so shiny boots of leather. What’s that? She wants taken all the way……down to Bristol……and you have no white horse, car, boat or plane? Bad. Because what Venus wants Venus gets! Did you not know that? And where did this big, fucking burly trannie appear from? All muscles and lipstick! Pretty angry looking too. Fuck! He’s just jabbed you in the chest with a sword! He grabs you by the hair and one swift tug brings you down on your hands and knees! You turn your head to see Venus. You are looking up her skirts as she throws a leg over your back and settles her weight there. “Move! Bristol’s a good way from here!” shouts the trannie. A whistle, a crack and a stinging stripe of pain across your arse! Turning again you see Venus smiling as she brings a whip down smartly. Crack! Crack! Crack! Sabrina - In the European heritage, it is taken from the Roman name for a river in mid-Wales which flows into England, there known as the Severn. - wikipedia

  42. See this:

    https://traditionalwitchcraftandoccultism.wordpress.com/tag/mind-control/

    Lots to read & ponder there but this stood out most of all for me:

    "Television and the Perils of Accepting Gifts from Black Magicians

    In practical black magic, we place an object of influence in the home of our enemy. Sometimes it is placed covertly or it is given to the person as a gift. Once this object is inside the person’s home, we project energy (waves, much like a broadcast signal) into this object, thus creating an influence on the person and everyone in their home. Never accept a gift from a black magician because they may use it to influence you.

    Remember the government “gift” of those high definition television broadcast boxes a few years ago? They wanted Americans to have access to television broadcasts badly enough to give two vouchers to every citizen! These boxes broadcast very vivid images using a different frequency bandwidth than the old analog did. Furthermore, the box itself emanates dangerously high levels of electromagnetic frequencies that cause physical weakness, which you can feel if you are sensitive to such things. (It feels like a strong field of static electricity and it can be headache-inducing to some people.)

    Television and PsyOps

    While broadcasts can be used to psychologically weaken targets in other ways (for example, the relay of false information to an enemy to cause them to take certain actions according to the black magician’s will), they can, also, be used to induce emotionally traumatized states and deepen the suggestibility level further. (In hypnosis, this is simply called “deepening.”) It is done on a mass scale by means of these traumatic events being broadcast (ie. Sandy Hook “Massacre,” 9/11 and other “breaking news”), repeatedly over the television sets to highly emotional and receptive targets who are already in a lower-brainwave state and, therefore, highly suggestible.

    The television, by means of its flicker rate, causes hypnotic induction to occur in a matter of a few minutes. Then, because of its ability to broadcast very realistic images combined with this brain wave-lowering flicker rate, is the perfect medium for broadcasting telepathic suggestions to the subconscious mind’s of millions of people at a time. The subconscious mind has no power of reasoning or analysis and willingly accepts whatever suggestions, images or other ideas it is given without question.

    The use of trauma to induce compliance in PsyOps is an other reason for mass casualty events being broadcast in a highly emotional way on the television. The black magicians on the television will “suggest” to the viewers what to feel and think. Once the trauma has sufficiently taken hold, the magician assumes the target is now “soft” for these further telepathic suggestions. The black magician (anchor or television journalist, in this case) will say, “There is fear all across America,” “Americans are shocked!” “Americans are in grief over this event,” “Americans demand tougher security measures,” “Americans are demanding more gun control,” etc. This is the second layering of a black magic spell by means of telepathic suggestion. The people under hypnotic induction receive these images at a subconscious level and accept them as their own.

    If you don’t watch television or keep abreast of popular culture, you may have noticed that people who do are difficult to have a discussion with about real world events because their minds have been heavily programmed by the sounds and images they have received in a semi-conscious, highly suggestible state. The television has been broadcasting an unreal version of life, especially Americans life, to American and people around the world for decades. The people subjected to it are literally under a spell and seem to live as if they are in a different version of reality because of the images and messages that have been broadcast to their subconscious minds while in a highly suggestible state."

    2. Yes I concur.
      Incredible post.
      It is and has been my opinion that this technology is ANCIENT and was utilized even by the Nazi's in their MKULTRA experiments.
      To me 'Creation' itself is frequency based; makes sense it can be used to alter thought, and therefore 'form'.
      Sounds like we should all be unplugging our television sets.

    3. I tend to believe analogue transmission may be more suggestible as it's closer to the original sound (less encoded) than digital which is more of a 'chopped' signal, i.e., a series of arbitrary ones and zeros
      Might explain a few things about Boomers and pre-boomer generations mind you
      But yeah, both probably very harmful. I guess we'll find out. Indoor wifi 'hotspots' are named very appropriately. No doubt if you stick your head next to one of those things for a while.... well, fill in the blanks

  43. Let's hear it for REAL black magick...Lucifer tech anyone?

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/5g-corporate-grail-microwave-radiation/5659341

    "Recently, 236 radiation-research scientists from around the world have signed a petition charging that 5G will be “massively increasing” the general population’s radiation exposure. And it’s not just humans that are endangered by this.

    Dr. Joel Moskowitz, a University of California-Berkeley public health professor, told the UK’s Daily Mail (May 29, 2018) that the deployment of 5G “constitutes a massive experiment on the health of all species.”

    In order to facilitate faster data-transfer speeds, 5G will utilize millimeter waves (MMWs), smaller waves accessed through a higher frequency of the electromagnetic spectrum not previously used by the telecom industry. These smaller waves cannot travel far, nor can they penetrate many types of materials. So this means that there will need to be millions of “small cell towers” (about the size of a refrigerator) close together – within a few feet of one another on every street.

    Dr. Moskowitz warns that these millimeter waves can affect the eyes, the testes, the skin, the nervous system, and the sweat glands.

    Eluxe Magazine’s Jody McCutcheon states that the higher-frequency MMW bands “give off the same dose of radiation as airport scanners. The effects of this radiation on public health have yet to undergo the rigours of long-term testing.”

    Adding to the dangers to the planet, 5G infrastructure will depend on the deployment of thousands of satellites propelled into orbit by hydrocarbon rocket engines, contributing to atmospheric pollution.

    An Oct. 27, 2016 article in The Ecologist titled “Wireless pollution ‘out of control’ as corporate race for 5G gears up” states: “The long-term, ecological implications of our new, anthropogenic radiation are not known. But peer-reviewed studies revealing harm to birds, tadpoles, trees, other plants, insects, rodents and livestock, offer clues.”

    Given that he called 5G “a massive experiment on the health of all species,” I asked Dr. Moskowitz whether the mainstream media had expressed interest in this perspective. He replied by email,

    “Although I have been interviewed hundreds of times by journalists since 2009 about cell phone health effects, there has been little interest in 5G,” with only three publications in the past two years showing interest in the new technology’s health effects.

    When asked why there is such a rush to deploy 5G, Dr. Moskowitz responded that the telecom companies in the US “have convinced policymakers and the public that we are in a global race with China and other countries to deploy this new technology, and that we won’t reap the economic benefits unless we are the first to deploy.” As well, the industry claims that we need 5G for the Internet of Things and to “improve broadband internet access in rural areas,” although such claims are “arguable.”

    1. Speaking of Lucifer's tech, this MU two-parter revisits the perspective of the evangalicals working on the inside during the UFO investigations, and their belief UFOs are merely demonic manifestations. Interesting they also believed in the "Parsons Working" as the opening of the portal for this.

  48. Come here OFTEN? I see what you did there! Well played, sir. The perfidy of Sidney Gottlieb indeed lives on, and is in some ways flowering as never before, as you so adroitly underscore on a regular basis.

    Thinking along those same lines Chris, when you get the chance check out the recent Homecoming just installed on Amazon Prime...have only seen thru ep 5 so far, but I smell a working treatise on MKUltra writ large and in easily digestible 30 minute chunks, and with a soundtrack pilfered 100% from the old 70s classics like The Fog, Parallax View, Klute, All The President's Men, Capricorn One, etc all marinated in delicious paranoia. The Revelation of the Method continues.....

    Hope all is going well with you & yours, Happy early Thanksgiving, and crack on mate!
