Knowledge Without Wisdom: Phaethon and Technocracy

Gustave Moreau's Phaethon.

Gustave Moreau’s Phaethon.

By: Jay

In our emergent technocracy we are submerged in a sea of knowledge.  Modern wonders reach their apex in the readily-available stores of knowledge at anyone’s fingertips.  Given this seemingly magical commodity was heretofore unknown to vast swaths of now dead humanity, one would think man would jump at the opportunity to educate himself on any and every topic.  Yet the reality is quite the contrary, as such a notion of aspiring, latent human potential had its origin in the universalized doctrine of “human reason” bequeathed to us from the Enlightenment.   The vast online Alexandrian databases are only perused by a few, with the majority of humanity preferring to opt for a wasted life of the meaningless and mundane.  In a strange twist that must baffle the modern progressive, humanity has devolved with the advent of their imagined tech utopia, not risen to the heights of transcendence.  The question arises – what is the purpose of never ending streams of knowledge, without wisdom?

Before considering that question, we have to ask how we arrived at this point.  For several hundred years, Western man in particular has been firmly convinced of the dogma that humans are blank slates awaiting only the right imprinting, the perfected external educational stimulant, and when the hallowed secular social order finally gets it just right, man would achieve his Promethean triumph.  When the coming technocracy appears, universal education and global democratic republics full of enlightened, informed citizenry will lead the way into the great ascent to godhood.   With a rising erection, the Enlightenment evangelists even hoped a fully global government would be conjured up, like some benevolent republican idealistic version of the Incarnation out of the Kantian noumena.  Instead, it becomes more apparent each day that these ideologues were either duped or consciously evil.   The presuppositions of existing modernity and its structures of power are still operating as if the Enlightenment “truths” are axiomatic givens – enshrined discoveries of the heroes of science that are no longer in question, as the verdict of reason and history are fully and ever vindicated.  The hard truth is that the Enlightenment ideologues were not only fundamentally wrong, but they were funded by the banking cartel for the purpose of social disorder and reorganization.  The dark lords of cash and subversive secret societies atop the idiot demagogues and salesmen were quite cognizant of the stupidity of such notions of Enlightenment tabula rasa anthropology, nevertheless, the endless stream of Dantons won out and even still never go away.  All the while, the money power laughs a hearty satanic cackle as the centuries pass by.

And so here we a couple hundred years after 1789 and 1776 and what do we see?  We see the intelligenstia operating as if physics and empiricism are actually explanatory “grand narratives.”  In total hypocrisy, labeling religion a fictitious “grand narrative” that only existed because it had explanatory power and satiated human fears, these intellectually dishonest liars erected their own alternative narrative that daily assaults me, and which I gleefully dissect on a daily basis: The new Gospel of human ascent through “science.”  One thinks here of August Comte’s patterned view of history where man passes from gradual stages of enlightenment, from primitive superstition and paganism, to rational monotheism, to philosophy and metaphysics, to physics and “social science.”  Although nothing could be further from the truth as regards the actual working of science and the actual structures of human social order and history, this mythology is still modernity’s Heilsgeschichte. 

For Jurgen Habermas, in his Theory and Practice,  the Frankfurt School becomes the praxis for the dark side strategy, whose own work is a manifestation of the angst of grappling with the course of the never ending “revolution,” from 1776/1789 onwards, looking into the future for the social engineers to fix man through his needed destruction.  I cite Habermas because he is a major Marxist Frankfurt School thinker who links the destruction of the old world to the French and American revolutionaries.  Habermas and the rest of his ilk like Horkheimer and Adorno, who worked with Western oligarchs and British establishment to destroy Western social order, export their weaponized disintegration to the rest of the globe.  They are significant for demonstrating that evil is not merely an organic, chaotic force that just occurs.  On the contrary, evil is very much concentrated, organzied and cunning in its tactics.  The key point here is that this technocratic rewriting is a strategic plan for total destruction that had to first be preceded by centuries of revolution and disintegration, prior to what Bertrand Russell and Aldous Huxley called “the final revolution,” intending by this the great revolution against man himself.  It is organized, structured, full spectrum subversion, inversion and dominance.

The Prestige (2006) – A Film About Revelation of the Method

The Pledge

For most viewers, The Prestige was a film about rival stage magicians in the Victorian Era, alternately seeking to top one another in the dank climate of emerging industrial revolution and technological wonder.  Lord Caldlow/Angiers (Hugh Jackman) is the secret nobleman who has a flair for the art of illusion, while Robert Borden and his twin (Christian Bale) are the working class stage hands who have devoted their lives to their art.  In the midst of this rivalry, the curious figure of Nikola Tesla enters (played by David Bowie) to interject the element of real magic, titled in the film, “wizardry.”  Both magicians are on a quest to sabotage the other, while seeking to perfect the greatest trick of all – the transported man.

Stage rivalry and obsession is what The Prestige is about, but it is also about much more.  After several viewings (as is my normal habit), my thesis began to congeal: The Prestige is about Hollywood and film-making itself.  And not only that, it is an industry that is an art of deception and illusion.  The director and the actors are in effect illusion artists, or con men, if you will.  The successful director is able to fool the audience into accepting that what is presented on the screen is real, even if it is evidently fantastical.  The magicians’ ingenieure, Mr. Cutter (Michael Caine), explains this principle of film as illusion at the beginning, which is to be applied to the film itself.  Cutter states:

“Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.”

Director Christopher Nolan explains in “The Making of The Prestige” this is to be applied to both directing and the film itself as theatrical illusion: “For me, The Prestige is very much about film-making.  It’s very much about what I do.  It is also intended to suggest to the audience some of those ideas about how the film itself is spooling its narrative out to the audience.  You want people to be aware of the effect the film is having as it’s unfolding before their eyes.”  The Prestige follows this same tripartite structure, as it draws you into an ordinary story of human rivalry and obsession, the “Turn,” where the audience is looking for the secret of Angier and the Borden’s trick, but not truly looking, because like film, stage magic operates under the audience’s suspension of disbelief.  The audience “wants to be fooled.”  And in the end, the transported man must come back – reemerge or resurrect, as the final climax of the show.

Keep ya bird in her cage, mate.

Keep ya bird in her cage, mate.

 

The Turn

In order to properly understand Nolan’s film, we must consider the same principle elucidated concerning David Lynch films – twilight language.  Researcher Michael Hoffman defines “twilight language” as follows in his Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare:  “The path to unlocking this gnosis was centered in “twilight language,” a once nearly universal subliminal communication system used in Egypt, Babylon, the Indian subcontinent and among the Aztecs, consisting of a combination of numbers, archetypal words and symbols, which in our time are sometimes embedded in modern advertising, and in certain modern films and music…. In Oriental Tantra, the mantra (including dharanikavacayamala, etc.) is sonically calculated to induce a particular action.  It forms part of the original sanskrit concept of sandhyabhasa(twilight language).  In Tantra, ‘Sandhyabhasa…is a language of light and darkness…in this higher type of discourse, words have another, a different meaning: this is not to be openly discussed.”  (pg. 207) Continue reading

The Cult of Scientism and Nikola Tesla’s Aether

Scientism, or aether?

Scientism, or aether?

By: Jay

The Reign of Scientism

I recently watched a BBC documentary titled “The Atom: The Illusion of Reality.” In Part 3, the host delves into the last few decades of quantum physics and makes some interesting admissions relevant to subject matter I discuss. The most significant section of the documentary deals with quantum electro dynamics and Dirac’s discovery of the equation that demonstrates anti-matter, and Feynman’s further contribution to this idea. QED posits that space is not a vacuum, but instead exhibits a never-ending cycle of energy that flows in and out of existence, that is borrowed from the future. While that is a complex idea, the main thrust of this essay is not to speculate on that question.

What I want to focus on are the presuppositions of the scientists involved in the documentary, as well as a telling example in the figure of Lisa Randall, how this relates to philosophy of science, and in turn how this is directly connected to pseudoscience that is propagated by the usual establishment suspects, to the detriment of all. After explaining the usage of the particle accelerator in measuring electrons, the host states about the Stanford linear accelerator:

When the physicists [measured electrons in the accelerator] they got their first confirmation there might be a deeper set of rules underpinning the particle zoo. What they discovered from the way the electrons scattered and from their extremely high energy, was conclusive proof that protons have internal structure. In other words, protons were made of more elementary particles. Here were Gell-Man’s quarks….For decades people were confident that the components of the atomic nucleus – protons and neutrons were absolutely fundamental. And now for the first time there was evidence of something deeper. The quark is a tricky and elusive beast. There are six kinds of quarks: up, down, strange, charmed, top and bottom. Also, quarks never exist in isolation with other quarks. This makes them impossible to see directly. We can only infer their presence. Despite these caveats, quarks brought some semblance of order to the particle zoo. In recent years its allowed us to concoct a simple, yet powerful description of how the universe is built up. Basically everything in the universe is made of atoms and is built of quarks and electrons. That’s it.

The ironies in this statement will not be lost on regular readers. For several years now I have written against scientism and analyzed presuppositions and worldviews. What most specialists and scientists in their respective fields fail to understand due to their specialization is the nature of worldviews and how they work. I don’t mean to devolve into psychologism, but I mean instead actual epistemology and metaphysics. Those trained in sound philosophy can easily see what’s at work here, as we unpack this astounding claim, and suffice to say this host and the documentary summarize the standard, mainline approach to these questions you would encounter (as I did) in mainline academia and universities.

Let’s analyze – the first problem with this statement is the question of the scientific method itself. Almost the entire academic world has, for centuries, been under the delusion that the “scientific method” is the best and only reliable means for arriving at an approximation of the natural world. Religion, speculation, emotions, etc., are all lumped into a similar dustbin, giving us no useful data relevant to science. Science, the argument goes, relies on some amorphous form of “reason” (though none of these pragmatists have any idea what exactly reason itself is), that provides us with calculable, generally mathematical results.

These results of the experiments thus confirm or refute any given theory, by some probabilistic approximation. Empirical science can never give absolute certainty, as that is something impossible. Instead, positivistic science and empirical research can give us the highest likely scenario about a given phenomenon, so long as the data lines up with the theory. In the words of one of the scientists in the documentary, “Shut up and calculate.” Allusion is generally made to some assumed belief of the ancient world, such as that Aristotle erroneously thought x, y, z. Thus, they gloriously proclaim, the empirical scientific method is the only reliable source of knowledge about the external world, and computers and iPods prove this to be so. The assumption there being that the Dark Ages was one of rampant superstition, while the scientific revolution brought man out of his self-imposed bondage, and into the light of reason, as Kant famously said.

"M'lady!"

“M’lady!”

Such is the mythology surrounding scientism, and its incorrect narrative of how history has progressed and how the scientific method is the only reliable, all-encompassing Rosetta Stone of gnosis. In reality, the global standardized university system is an epistemic cartel dogmatically committed to enforcing naïve empiricism and reductionist materialism, as well as centuries old, outdated “mass consumption” physics. Granted, not every “scientist” is party to this conspiracy, but without a doubt, no one graduates to international prominence without passing the qualifications of the Royal Society’s Holy Office of scientific inquisition. Nikola Tesla and his classified and confiscated work is a perfect example of this international materialist/monetarist control – but more on that later.

Philosophy Phoenix Arises to Annihilate deGrasse Tyson

Or, Gödel Versus the New World Order

By: Jay

In the land of the blind, the 80s black science guy with 80s black guy mustache is king.  In a recent interview, high priest of neo-Darwinian scientism, Neil de Grasse Tyson expounded the true profundity of his worldview.  Tyson stated on a recent podcast:

“interviewer: At a certain point it’s just futile.

dGT: Yeah, yeah, exactly, exactly. My concern here is that the philosophers believe they are actually asking deep questions about nature. And to the scientist it’s, what are you doing? Why are you concerning yourself with the meaning of meaning?

(another) interviewer: I think a healthy balance of both is good.

dGT: Well, I’m still worried even about a healthy balance. Yeah, if you are distracted by your questions so that you can’t move forward, you are not being a productive contributor to our understanding of the natural world. And so the scientist knows when the question “what is the sound of one hand clapping?” is a pointless delay in our progress.

[insert predictable joke by one interviewer, imitating the clapping of one hand]

dGT: How do you define clapping? All of a sudden it devolves into a discussion of the definition of words. And I’d rather keep the conversation about ideas. And when you do that don’t derail yourself on questions that you think are important because philosophy class tells you this. The scientist says look, I got all this world of unknown out there, I’m moving on, I’m leaving you behind. You can’t even cross the street because you are distracted by what you are sure are deep questions you’ve asked yourself. I don’t have the time for that. [Note to the reader: I, like Neil, live and work in Manhattan, and I can assure you that I am quite adept at crossing the perilous streets of the metropolis.]

interviewer [not one to put too fine a point on things, apparently]: I also felt that it was a fat load of crap, as one could define what crap is and the essential qualities that make up crap: how you grade a philosophy paper? [5] Continue reading

Philo Sophia: A Pretentious Essay

Milla.

What do you know?

 

Dedicated to MJC

By: Jay

It was a dark and stormy night and as I lay upon my couch, I fell into a Cartesian Meditation.  I thought about thinking out loud and thinking itself.  I thought, to think is to lose the flow of thought as thought translates into word.  And I thought about how man’s mind and his ‘nous‘ is the meeting place with God, and how God is present in the stream of thought, and how we have a stream of thought.  I thought about how a whole world can be opened by a book and how different religions participate in a different geist, and how an atheist limits himself in thinking there is only one way things can be analyzed and how under the guise of free thinking this was actually a limitation.

And I thought about an old girlfriend, and how she would have no concern for these things.  Then I thought about why I thought about an old girlfriend and how that isn’t interesting expressed out loud.  And I thought about how superstition is mistaken for religion and how people think that is a justification for rejecting religion.  I thought about a number and how a number is something mysterious, even thought it has the cloak of being purely rational in the Enlightenment sense of rational, where everything is subject to quantification and how great it was that number itself is not subject to quantification.  And I thought about how the idea of subjecting everything to quantification itself cannot be subjected to quantification and how a presupposition is a hinge upon which an entire worldview turns.  I thought about how the mind is a train that can be turned on a faulty presupposition to continue down a wrong track for one’s whole life.

And I thought about how the look of early 20th century trains were something that fascinated me as a child, but not now.  And I asked myself, “Why did I like a train as a kid, and not now?”  And I thought about time and the passage of time and how it is the rate at which we experience light in our frequency or wavelength, and how philosophers speculated about time, thinking it was a constant, but that it is not.  I thought about how people thought time was a kind of substance like “space” and how Aristotle defines substance and how even Descartes used substance and people misunderstand this, because it meant something different than it does in the modern era.  I thought about how people think it means a gooey, gelatinous, semisolid thing, when it meant essence. And I thought about how no one cares what essence is and how idiots in philosophy classes think it’s something cool to say but don’t know what they’re talking about.  I thought about how essence was something a medieval theologian thought about every day and how now no one cares what that is, or metaphysics.

And I thought about how big corporate bookstores sell metaphysics as witchcraft and Tarot and how silly it is to think that is what metaphysics is.  And I wondered what it must be like to be the person who thinks that is what metaphysics is and then I recalled my ex-girlfriend again and that she probably didn’t count as a girlfriend, and that she wouldn’t care about any of these things.

I thought about intimacy and we can only have an approximation of what the opposite sex experiences in intimacy and how that was analogical.  We speak of God analogically and that is Thomistic terminology, but that most people misunderstand this because Thomas Aquinas was wrong, yet no one cares about this nowadays.  I thought about Socrates and the Apology and the dialogues and how funny it would be to walk through my own hometown to ask artisans and politicians what “justice” and “wisdom” are, in the ideal sense, and how they would have no idea, and how the average reader of this post will take “ideal” in the colloquial sense and not the metaphysical sense.  And I thought about how everyone would say “justice” is relative to whatever they want it to be, and how it was no different in Socrates’ day.    I thought about how pretentious the philosopher is and was.  I thought about how we exist in an era of knowledge like none other, but utterly lacking in wisdom and how the Internet represents infinite knowledge, but without the form and meaning wisdom provides and how this was damaging and useless.  I thought again about how our thought process turns on a faulty or correct presupposition like a train on the tracks.

Bilderberg 2014 Goals: End Resistance and Unify One World Order

Bilderberg 2014?

Bilderberg 2014?

 

By: Jay

Bilderberg 2014 is coming up – are you excited?  I know I am.  One reason I’m excited is those of us who have written and exposed these types of events for years aren’t mocked and ferociously opposed like we used to be.  Although I’ve only written about these topics for about 8 years, I had been vocal about them since age 18.  I should add as well that I am a late bloomer compared to writers like Jim Tucker and Daniel Estulin, who have been there all along exposing Bilderberg.  In that span of time, the Internet has increased awareness of these international corporate syndicalist entities far more than I would have ever expected.  Another reason I’m excited is the intel coming out of Bilderberg, which appears to be more worry about losing grip on the “unipolar” world they once had, as knowledge of their existence expands and as other big players like Russia (no longer welcome at the annual meetings) begin to question the sanity of having a single global technocracy try to rewrite all of existence.

In fact, my college professors mocked me for bringing up Bilderberg over the years, but now, Bilderberg is something that has been forced into mainstream news.  The mainstream so-called news for years would ridicule and laugh about anyone who dared mention the words, as did most of the faux conservative and liberal talk radio hosts.  While the ping-pong of gobbledygook back and forth on inane nonsense topics continues, Bilderberg will reportedly meet in Copenhagen, Denmark this Thursday at the Marriot Hotel or at another lesser-known secret location, Kokkedal Castle.  Before delving into the plans this year, let us review our notes from last year, as the focus was transhumanism, surveillance and the passing of the torch to the acolytes of the tech industries.  As I explained last year:

“Intelligence expert Stephen Dorrill writes about Bilderberg in his MI6 as follows: “In an effort to cement western co-operation in the midst of the Cold War, the first Bilderberg conference was held in May in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeck at the hotel of “Bilderberg,” from which the meeting took its name.  It was seen as an opportunity for shapers of opinion among elite groups in Europe to speak with one voice to their counterparts in the United States, who feared differences over European integration and Eastern Europe would create misunderstandings.  Funding came courtesy of the Dutch government and the CIA…” (MI6, pg 508)  Dorrill’s book can hardly be called “conspirtatorial.”  It is a standard treatise, though critical, of MI6 and British Intelligence.  Dorrill’s mainstream work was explaining Bilderberg’s purpose years ago, as did Rockefeller’s Memoirs, all the while the Idiocracy media parroting the lie that no such entity exists.  In fact, Bilderberg was instrumental in founding the EU and the Euro, so that it is irrelevant is absurd.”

And,

“Bilderberg is therefore a manifestation of the world government written about in Tragedy and Hope by Dr. Carroll Quigley that I have quoted several times.  Quigley wrote as follows concerning the Anglo-American establishment that both Rockefeller and Dorrill discuss.  Quigley, the Royal Institute and CFR chronicler, states:

Hollywood Occult Brainwashing in Lynch’s ‘Mulholland Drive’

“‘I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper.’ – David Lynch

By: Jay

The Academy Award-nominated 2001 work of David Lynch, Mulholland Drive, is remembered by most as a macabre, satirical nightmare dreamscape of Neo-noir centering around a typical girl next door’s dream of becoming the next Hollywood starlet.  That is about the only thing viewers can agree the film is about.  Reviewers speak of “surrealism,” “imagination,” “nightmares,” and a few of the more philosophical pieces look at semiotics in relation to the performance at Club Silencio, yet no one seems able to truly crack the language of Mulholland, even with Lynch’s clues and hints.  In my analysis, I want to propose something radically different – Mulholland follows Lost Highway as a similar story of Hollywood dark side, but with a new twist, revealing actual occult brainwashing techniques.  Not only that, Lynch’s film will make “twilight language” references to a host of esoteric subjects, including the Manson murders and the CIA’s MKULTRA mind control programs.

Before delving into that topic, author Michael Hoffman defines “twilight language” as follows in his Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare:  “The path to unlocking this gnosis was centered in “twilight language,” a once nearly universal subliminal communication system used in Egypt, Babylon, the Indian subcontinent and among the Aztecs, consisting of a combination of numbers, archetypal words and symbols, which in our time are sometimes embedded in modern advertising, and in certain modern films and music…. In Oriental Tantra, the mantra (including dharani, kavaca, yamala, etc.) is sonically calculated to induce a particular action.  It forms part of the original sanskrit concept of sandhyabhasa (twilight language).  In Tantra, ‘Sandhyabhasa…is a language of light and darkness…in this higher type of discourse, words have another, a different meaning: this is not to be openly discussed.”  (pg. 207)

In my Lost Highway analysis, I mentioned that David Lynch is a fan of Buddhist and zen philosophy.  Presumably, he is also aware of this Tantric conception of twilight language and its significance in terms of using and manipulating symbols and events.  The opening of that analysis is appropriate for Mulholland Drive, as well:

“The telling of the story is non-linear, yet influenced heavily by classic 1940s Noir. Lost Highway is influenced by zen philosophy and Jungian dreamscapes, but as for the deeper occult elements, it’s necessary to understand why the stories are presented in a interlinking duality, as they are in Mulholland Drive. Zen philosophy is concerned with duality and its transcendence, as ultimate principles, as well as with the individual’s particularized psyche, and its relation to the whole of reality. Zen is therefore a quasi-religious philosophy concentrated on ultimate metaphysical principles, known in philosophy historically as the problem of the one and the many. For Lynch, these philosophical questions are not just abstract philosophy, but also relate directly to the psyche in its conscious and unconscious/sleep states.”
