The Thinker

sits on a mountaintop
everything at once
nothing at all.

sits in his living room
everything at once
on his
television screen.

sits in his living room
in himself
nothing at all.

sits on a mountaintop
everything at once
in his
book of poetry.

Faith Is Evil

1.) Reality exists

2.) Therefore, actions have consequences.

3.) Therefore, The Truth matters ( and that is why it matters ).

4.) Therefore, Good and Evil are objective.

What follows from this? You are required to love The Truth; you are not free to choose what to believe. It is not " just my opinion ", and it is not my decision.

In real life, as on Buffy, Faith is the Evil Slayer.

Ban These 5 Things


We don't have to actually ban F completely. Fluoride applied topically to the teeth and gums - and then spit out - as in toothpaste, is OK, and may even have some benefit ( the much-touted cavity prevention ). However, the ingestion of F in any form has never been shown to be beneficial in any way, and in fact there is substantial evidence that it is harmful, esp. to the thyroid. And the F in tap water is - as Dr. Tim O'Shea put it:

" a toxic byproduct in the manufacture of nuclear arms, aluminum, cement, steel, and phosphates. Millions of tons of this poison are produced every year. Imagine the cost of containing and disposing of those mountains of waste every year. It's in the billions. But what if lobbyists from these industries could present "scientific studies" paid for by the industries, and provide for a continual stream of media presentations about the health benefits of fluoride, and create unimaginably lucrative positions for "research" and "education" within the American Dental Association and the AMA, and do all these things in a consistent and unending way, year after year? "

The book The Fluoride Deception, by Christopher Bryson, is reportedly very powerful ( ), though I haven't had a chance to read it yet.


It stands for Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil ( which is how you will find it written on a list of ingredients ). Despite being vegetable oil, this stuff has been so processed that it digests more like plastic; and it's in almost everything in regular grocery stores, and many restaurants - esp. for frying ( our fries are cooked in 100% vegetable oil ! ). If you see the word " hydrogenated ", avoid it; if it comes after the phrase " 2% or less of ", I figure it's OK once in a while.

Whole Foods Market has mostly non-hydrogenated, but don't assume - I've seen PHVO in the list of ingredients on both Ben & Jerry's and Newman's Own, both of which said " all natural " on the front.

At , there is a ton of info on this subject and related subjects (e.g., canola oil not necessarily healthy, saturated fat not necessarily un-healthy ), and a ton of links all over his site.


MonoSodium Glutamate is a cheap substitute for the natural flavor enhancer in a certain type of seaweed; once U.S. companies got their hands on it, they started putting it in just about everything ( noticing a pattern? ). Don't give me this " it's only a problem for some people " story - it's a problem for everyone:

" When consumers refer to MSG they are referring to PROCESSED FREE GLUTAMIC ACID. If glutamic acid hasn't been processed, it doesn't cause adverse reactions. MSG is MANUFACTURED (and it has 30 different names... why?) MSG is NOT FOUND NATURALLY IN FOOD or in the human body. MSG is NOT IDENTICAL TO FREE GLUTAMIC ACID THAT HAS NOT BEEN MANUFACTURED. The glutamic acid found naturally in human beings and other higher organisms is not MSG. MSG enters the body through the mouth, through the nose, through the skin, and through the placental barrier. MSG can enter the brain through the blood brain barrier, which is incomplete through childhood, never intact in certain regions of the hypothalamus, and is easily damaged by things like a blow to the head, high fever, seizures, stroke, and the normal process of aging. MSG is potentially toxic to everyone. MSG can cross the placental barrier. MSG is most toxic to the unborn, to infants, to children, and to the elderly. MSG is found in medications - including vaccines. MSG is found in infant formula - with the greatest amounts found in hypoallergenic formula. MSG is found in liquid supplements given to the elderly. MSG is being sprayed on crops as they grow. MSG is HIDDEN IN AND ON UNPROCESSED PRODUCE that has been sprayed with plant "growth enhancers," fertilizers, and fungicides that contain MSG. MSG is being used in waxes applied to raw fruits and vegetables. MSG is hidden in PROCESSED food in ingredients that give no clue to the fact that they contain MSG. The glutamate-industry-sponsored research that claims to "prove" that MSG is safe is flawed to the point of being fraudulent. One of their tricks (and there are many) is to use MSG in placebos. "


AZT kills humans dead. The AIDS hoax, I said it, is a cover story for the toxic effects of Conventional Western Medicine. The promoters of the AIDS lie are guilty of conspiracy to commit murder. , by Jon Rappoport , has a ton of disturbing but empowering info on this 1, and on a bunch of other subjects as well.


Aspartame is a proven neuro-toxin, and was rejected by the FDA on the basis of the evidence. Then Donald Rumsfeld ( that Donald Rumsfeld ? Yes, that Donald Rumsfeld ), as CEO of Searle, pulled some strings ( he had been Secretary of Defense under President Ford ) and the FDA approved it despite it having been proven poisonous. It is now in diet soda pop and many other drinks, and is marketed as Nutra-Sweet.

Alchemy 4 Dummies


Follow the clues and connect the dots, with an attitude of being willing to find out what the truth is about everything no matter what it turns out to be; that process is the action which will grow your awareness into a shield. Inside that chrysalis ( which the Alchemists called " the egg " ) the fractured self can fuse back into 1.

Definitely recommend doing it quietly at 1st, maybe even in secret; when you start to deviate from the behavior that The Matrix requires/expects, you will thereby subject yourself to hammering. That is a necessary part of the process, as it is that very hammering which will provide the heat and pressure to make you fuse; however, if you have not grown your awareness into a shield by following the clues and connecting the dots, the hammering would only be more fracturing.

Heating and Cooling

By John Clements, Director of the HACA
Excerpted from his book "Medieval Swordsmanship"

" The quality of steel in Medieval swords could vary from weapon to weapon. It depended a great deal on its heat treatment. Steel first needed careful forging and tempering (quenching and reheating). Steel is iron with a higher carbon content and is much stronger. Steel was made from selected iron ore by repeated heating in a hot charcoal fire. The addition of the carbon molecules improves the alignment of iron molecules. The raw metal was worked by hammer into a bar. A sword might be constructed from several separate pieces of iron and steel, each carefully hammered on. These were then "welded" together by hammering them when yellow hot (one X-ray of a Viking sword revealed it to have been forged from 58 separate pieces). Separate bars were also sometimes then added for edges. Finally, while still hot, the blade was worked into final shape and tempered by quenching (rapid cooling by plunging into a liquid bath). The steel was hardened by heating the shaped blade to a bright red color and then plunging it into a liquid bath (which could be oil, water, wine, honey, urine, or blood). This made the steel hard but also brittle. To temper it, the blade was then reheated to carefully soften it. A fine balance was needed between hardness on the edge for cutting and softness in the body for flex and durability. The tempered blade was then polished (sharpened) by a stone wheel. " [ emphases added. ]

And from

" For many, many centuries only a few master smiths knew the secret of how to make a sword of steel. And before that, steel and iron were once thought to be magical substances. There is evidence suggesting that the iron found in early artifacts was not man-made but was taken from the fragments of meteorites. In many primitive or prehistoric cultures, the word “ironactually meansstone (or hard substance or metal) from heaven”, “star metal”, or some other meaning suggesting an other-worldly origin. Chemical analysis of the earliest iron artifacts show the same percentage of nickel that is found in meteoric iron. During the last century, some “primitive” cultures have even been observed using iron from crashed meteorites to make various useful tools. " [ emphases added. ]

So, the steel is made from combining iron and carbon, heating and cooling, heating and cooling, then hammering to remove the impurities. Note the caution that this process can leave the steel brittle; you make it hard but flexible by reheating, but not as hot as before, and for a little more time.

Those who have ears, let them hear.

The Metaphor

Stupid people been taking the metaphor literally forever. Time to get serious now.

The 4 Elements

Earth = the physical body
Air = the breath of life
Fire = emotion, esp. the burning desire to accomplish " the Great Work "
Water = spirit

The 5th Element

The 5th element is time ( it combines the other 4 elements within itself; it takes a certain amount of time to accomplish the Great Work ).

The Secret Fire


" This has been transcribed from 'In Pursuit of Gold' by 'Lapidus' ... the preparation of the 'secret fire' (the catalyst or solvent which is used throughout the whole work, without which nothing can be achieved, but which is seldom if ever mentioned in any alchemical treatise) ... The reader will note that the language is allusive and recondite, that several names are used to refer to the same thing and that one name is used to refer to several things. This is, however, an exceptionally clear alchemical text. "

The secret fire is consciousness; but not just any consciousness - a consciousness tuned to Objective Reality, The Truth, and The Good.


There's a real pretty poem called " Hermaphrodite Child of Sun and Moon " at Perhaps you will find it good?

Get a Clue, Dude

Those of you who think that seeking the gold of the Philosophers is a fool's errand might want to look into " iron pyrite ".

The 1 True Religion

The original trinity was God the Father, God the Mother, and The Son of God. This was psychologically healthy for the human race, and has the added benefit of being essentially correct. Christianity, a psychopathically patriarchal death cult, transformed "God the Mother" into "the Holy Ghost" specifically to devalue The Female, so as to unbalance the individual and the planet.

The Logos
Because God "spoke" the universe into being (vibration), The Son of God was also called "The Word" of God; in Greek, Logos. We are all the Sons and Daughters of God, but The Logos is the only "begotten" Son of God.
However, the concept of The Logos meant much more to The Ancients than the Son/Word of God; It also included concepts such as Balance, Proper Proportion,and The Natural Order.

The Old Testament
The Old Testament is a chronicle of a people moving between 2 poles as they move through history: being in harmony and being out of harmony with The Logos - The Natural Order. When they are in harmony with The Logos, things go well for them; then they think they don't need to make the effort to be in harmony with The Logos, and they slip out of harmony with It. After a time, a "prophet" arises to tell them what they don't want to hear - that the problems that beset them are not caused by others, but by their own failure to think, feel, act, and live in harmony with The Natural Order. The good news is that solving the problem is just a matter of rejecting The Lie in favor of "The Truth and The Way"/The Logos/The Natural Order/The "Son of God".

Jesus attained a state of understanding such that he channeled The Logos consciously, and embodied It in this world. So when Jesus said, "I am the Truth, I am the Way", he was speaking as The Logos.

The Man With 2 Brains
The left hemisphere of the brain ( which controls the right hand, and is linear & masculine ) responds to and is "reinforced" by ( in the psychological sense of the term) the written word. The right hemisphere of the brain ( which controls the left hand, and is intuitive & feminine ) responds to and is reinforced by the image. The pagan religions were all about the image, esp. as statues, which appealed to the right hemisphere, and produced illiterate cultures that valued The Female as Life-Giver.
However, apparently the left hemisphere felt neglected and unvalued in this scheme at the level of the collective unconscious. The imbalance created a rebound in the form of monotheistic religions - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - which replaced the image of the Goddess with written words about an imageless male God. So, for @3 thousand years, we have had imbalance in the other direction (with the short-lived exception of The Age of Chivalry,with its black Madonnas and Quest for the Holy Grail.)
One example of The Natural Order is for the Male to lead the Female, in dancing as in life ( "He who does not dance does not know what is happening" - Gnostic proverb).
The reptilian brain ( at the top of the spinal cord ), on the other hand, fears being dominated by others, and so seeks to dominate others as a "pre-emptive strike." This domination is a violation of The Logos.

Man Save Man?
Will we as the human race pursue this path of unbalance right to our own destruction, like a giant Enron; or, will we combine what the right hemisphere values with what the left hemisphere values, to form 1 true religion? The clock is ticking...
