Aliens and planet Earth

Best wishes from our family Arcturians and support in 2042 .

And the coming big Solar flash.

New Study finds The Biggest Solar Storm in 100 years Will Hit Earth in Early 2024, not 2025

Solar flares/NASA scientist finely start warning for strike/internet.
sounding the alarm on a so-called solar superstorm that could and this is important underline the word could eventually Wipe Out the internet for weeks or even months Indian astronomers have just warned that the coming solar storm could be so powerful that the internet across the world could face problems for weeks we may have to be a little serious about upcoming solar flares unfortunately this isn’t the plot of an underappreciated B tier Netflix Thriller.

But an actual possibility according to scientists who have been studying the sun’s solar activity researchers have discovered a new relationship between the sun’s magnetic field and its Sunspot
Cycle that can help predict when the peak in solar activity will occur NASA previously predicted that the next solar maximum would begin in late 2025

Unfortunately a new study reveals that this solar maximum is coming sooner than expected most likely in early 2024 a new study led by Dr Debu Nandy a physicist from the Isur Kolata center of excellence in space Sciences in India as predicted an early 2024 solar event.

Dr D Bendu Nandy said that it is not possible to predict the intensity and consequences of solar storms this early but we should learn more as the new year approaches by the way he also said that of course they also make beautiful auroras so we can hope that 2024 will be a good year for Aurora Hunters.

Other scientists are now warning that this rapid increase in sunspots could be a serious warning sign of another Carrington event well let’s delve deeper into this topic and find out why Indian astronomers have raised concerns about the upcoming solar event the sun is a huge ball of electrically charged hot gas that moves generating a powerful magnetic field this magnetic field goes through a cycle called the solar cycle every 11 years or so.

The sun’s magnetic field completely flips meaning the sun’s North and South Poles switch places this solar cycle affects activity on the surface of the sun such as sunspots which are caused by the sun’s magnetic fields one way to track the solar cycle is by counting the number of sunspots the beginning of a solar cycle is a solar minimum or when the sun has the least sun spots over time solar activity and the number of sunspots increases the middle of the solar cycle is the solar maximum.

When the sun has the most sun spots as the cycle ends it fades back to to the solar minimum and then a new cycle begins here you can see the increase in the number of sunspots during the solar
maximum phases of 2001 compared to the weak phases of 1996 or 2006 almost a century ago.

Swiss astronomer Max Waldmire left a trail of cosmic clues that scientists still follow today to predict when the sun will reach its solar maximum back in 1935 vault.

Meer noticed something fascinating about Sunspot Cycles he observed that the faster the rise of a
sunspot cycle the stronger its strength he realized that a stronger cycle took less time to reach its maximum strength this discovery now known as the vmire effect is like a crystal ball for scientists helping them estimate the strength of a sunspot cycle by observing its early stages of development and using this method.

NASA scientists predicted that the next solar maximum will occur in the year 2025 however Indian astronomers reveals that this solar maximum is coming sooner than expected most likely in early 2024 what the Indian researchers have done is find a new relationship using decades old data archives from multiple ground based solar observatories around the world.

The large scale solar dipole field starts weakening and assumes more complex configuration the dipole field vanishes during sunspot cycle Peak and following this it flips its direction and starts growing slowly again using this method Indian astronomers found that the next solar maximum is likely to occur not in 2025 but in early 2024 .

With flames so strong that they can disrupt the world’s internet for weeks furthermore researchers previously predicted that the upcoming solar maximum could pose a major problem for Earth’s communication.

System the most intense solar storms can sometimes result in catastrophic orbital decay of low Earth orbiting satellites and disrupt satellite-based services such as Communications and navigational networks.

A Channeled Message from the Acturians


This video contains a channeled message from the Arcturians. Below is some information about channeling, for those who are new to this material.

Channeling Arcturians involves connecting with these beings to receive messages, guidance, and insights.

Channeling, also known as mediumship, involves individuals acting as conduits for spiritual or
extraterrestrial entities, such as the Arcturians, to communicate through them. Channelers often enter
altered states of consciousness, such as deep meditation, trance, or a focused mental state, to establish
a connection with these entities. The process is highly subjective and relies on the channeler’s beliefs,
abilities, and their willingness to surrender their conscious mind to allow the Arcturians to convey their
messages.

The messages channeled from the Arcturians can cover a wide range of topics, including spirituality, personal growth, healing, the nature of the cosmos, and humanity’s role in the universe. They are often presented as words of wisdom, guidance, and encouragement, intended to assist individuals in their spiritual development and raise their consciousness.

Click here for the original video/link as published online. A subject the big tech Media will not address.

Techniques of Channeling Arcturians:

Meditation: Many channelers use meditation as a means to quiet the mind, raise their vibration, and establish a clear channel for communication with the Arcturians.

Trance States: Some channelers enter deep trance states to connect with the Arcturians. During trance, their conscious mind steps aside, allowing the entity to communicate through them.

Automatic Writing: This involves channelers allowing the Arcturians to guide their hand in writing messages. The process is akin to taking dictation from the entity.

Verbal Communication: In this method, channelers speak aloud the messages they receive from the Arcturians, often during group channeling sessions or one-on-one sessions with individuals seeking guidance.

Sacred Geometry and Symbols: Channelers may use sacred symbols or geometrical patterns as a means of connecting with the Arcturians and understanding their messages.

The History of Channeling Arcturians:

Channeling as a practice has a long history, dating back to various ancient spiritual and religious traditions.
In the context of the Arcturians, their emergence as channeled entities gained prominence in the latter half of the 20th century and continues to be influential. The Arcturians are often associated with the expansion of consciousness and the shift in human spirituality.

The exact origins of the Arcturian concept and its emergence in channeling remain unclear, but it’s closely
linked to the broader New Age movement that emerged in the mid-20th century.

In summary, channeling Arcturians is a practice within the metaphysical communities where individuals can connect with these extraterrestrial beings to receive spiritual guidance and wisdom.
The practice relies on various techniques, including meditation and trance states.

Welcome message from the Arcturians (Channeled)

Short introduction and not part of the channeling:

Planet earth frequency is changing including it’s position around the sun and this has fare reaching consecuences. Within our universe everything is located a place/properties depending on
the densities/dimensions and most have scale of 12.

For a long time we as humans were listed as a 3, our heaven a 4/5 and so on.
Currently planet earth isselve is moving towards 4-5 and possible a 6 and with it come all kind of consequences.
Because of these consequences our human/mammal based relatives have started to contact us and
sending messages in this respect. The Acturians are one of several others.

Planet earth is hacked by the cabal/deep State including the private bankers trying to subdue us
and enslave as long as they see an opportunity and hopping to complete it in 2024. Original 2030.

What we see and feel changing around us as projected by them on CO2 or carbondioxide which plants need to manifest and grow. Currently the concentration of CO2 in the air is 0.04% an defecting plant growth negatively but blamed by them as climate change and pushed and try to use it in name the greeter good or saving planet earth. To be done by degrading us the common people/their electorate and locking us up. No end in sight and the NWO/Illuminati supporters/members doubling down.

Carbon dioxide is not a climate changer not now not in our past nor the future. Planet Earth is controlled by lucifer and being turned into a kind of hell. A hell or planet 8 does not exist as such but reserved place or concentration for negative beings. Run by A mix of lunatics/psychopath/sociopaths united in a collective/hive.

No individuality put parts/control of this central collective, permission for everything the do or undertake, 7/24 control of watched by telepathic means. They are trying to impose a digital version of it on us humans who have a soul structure and free will.

Basically, what did happen a very long time ago after creating the physical universe a big change was made, being the introduction of food chain and reproduction. The universe became predatory and you had to kill in order to survive/manifest here in the physical universe. Before that date it was not the case and plants and light would do, the universe a place of peace and interaction and happiness as very old souls do remember..


To make sure you understand it again, to be able to manifest within the physical universe you do need energy (food) Not just plant, or animals but also humans, spirits, demons just call it.

No exception, to be involved here.

Energy comes in many form and can change into almost anything.The beings and more particular souls,
demons, spirits use fibrations and light and we humans are the most favoured source.

Another name for it is vibrations and everything within our physical universe as such vibrates at different rates. ( frequencies)

However only a limited type vibrations can be used as food and in our case and our predators use
different types the lower frequencies. All emotions are for example have there own specific frequency depending on the frequency band and vary/organised from high to low.

Fear for example is a low frequency vibration and love a high one. Demons feed on fear and the others on higher types like bliss, love, gratitude, care, interests to name a few.

By manipulation our environment/existence in which we have to live the yield in terms of food can be raised/lowered for humans. Unfortunately the negative being now in control of planet Earth have pushed for and created fear, anger, repression, war, stress, illness pain and wars by using control/the Law to optimise yield. The more misery the higher the generated usable output of yield and their associated power over us.


As a warning there are far less real humans with a soul incarnated on planet earth than you might think.
Others are soulless/matrix beings, clones just name it.


The higher beings and users of energy (feed) based on human produced emotions/energy/consciousness like love, bliss, oneness care, social activities, overall wellbeing, music, dans, travel to name a few. At least for most of us as humans associated with it a much higher quality of life.

There is much more to these subjects but no space/time here. And some important questions remain?

So our earths frequencies are changing ( Result of solar activity or the so-called flares/solar activity.) These changes will happen in depended from us. A take or leave it. The negative beings now in control of planning earth will be effected negatively by the rise and trying to push and lock-up[ enslave the human population].


Starting of wars, disrupting supply chains, interference with the food production, push all kinds of
digital control and punishment. First there was covid and now climate change. They did pick CO2 because all animals and humans are depended on that and easy to push/sell. A big campagne has been underway for a long time now to sell/push it on the public and electorate.

The excuse to scale down all kinds of human activities and rights including our universal freewill. The pushing creating of wars, disrupting the transport chains. Lowering the food production by other means like restricting fertilisers, reducing available land, lowering CO2 just name it.

At the same time other human based advanced civilisations are up in arm and sending warnings/offers of sympathy and support to their relatives now living on planet Earth.

The Acturians are one of them and I did copy one of their messages because of the Year end and you can not find it in the main stream Media.

The message reads:

Dear Seekers of light we greet you with love and the Resonance of higher frequencies from the celestial
Realms of Arcturus we are the urans your Cosmic brothers and sisters and we extend our heart- centered
vibrations to touch the essence of your being at this pivotal moment in your Earthly Journey.

The Earth is undergoing a profound shift in Consciousness and you are integral to this process.

Embrace The Awakening of your DNA for within its spiral Helix lies the potential to unlock latent
abilities and knowledge as you attune to higher vibrational frequencies you will experience greater Clarity

Greetings my dear beloved children so as to finish my story about the Archangel Michael I would like to tell you about his cooperation with Ashtar Sheron this unique Alliance has already brought results in purifying Earth and human Collective conscience from the dark Forces

influence how does their interaction occur since the Galaxy Light federations members are not only
representatives of Highly developed civilizations but disembodied creatures who find themselves at very high levels of existence too the program for the support of Earth and Humanity transition to The Fifth
Dimension.

Was worked out the way that peculiarities of all the members of the galactic light Federation are
taken into consideration each each of them has their own clearly stated tasks and responsibilities one of the most prominent roles is played by the Archangel Michael who has membership in the Galaxy Light Federation so what is his contribution to Earth’s transition as it has already been mentioned in my previous messages.

It is first of all in protection of people from the dark Forces both from demons and their servants as beings of all the levels but sometimes he has to act as a defender of Representatives of other extraterrestrial civilizations too.

Since there is severe struggle for your planet in progress both at the subtle level and at the physical one while the main Fleet of the Grays has already left your planet the field employees for the programs initiated by them are still on Earth and as as you can see successfully carry on with their work.

Therefore for their actions neutralization the support of disembodied members of the galactic light Federation is really essential as they can make influence on the creatures embodied as humans.

This is exactly the subtle material work that the Archangel Michael and his Angel troops are assigned with
and this is what it actually is by means of multi-stage energy influence on the executors of these programs designed by the dark Forces.

The vibrations of these creatures embodied as humans are getting higher and it follows by their
conscience changes and results in many of them taking the side of light having cutting edge Technologies at their disposal they will later be able able to share them with the inhabitants of the new Earth and to
prevent the representatives of the dark forces that are still exercising control of their conscience and life.

From making them any harm their energy space is carefully a QQ protected by the Archangel Michael and
his assistants at the subtle level. There is in progress a vigorous fight for every revived person especially
if one possesses the knowledge that can benefit All the humanity

The responsibilities between Ashtar Sharon and the Archangel Michael are generally divided as follows: Ashtar with his Fleet controls the airspace preventing the gray spaceships from approaching your planet.

While the Archangel Michael Works in terms of energy dissolving low vibration energies that the Grays are trying to keep their inferiors on Earth in so as to maintain their power over them right now.

The situation on Earth is unique indeed as the battle between light and dark at all the levels is participated by a huge variety of creatures both embodied and disembodied and you my dear take an active part in this grandiose Divine project

The transition of the planet and her inhabitants to a new energy space each meditation of yours each Seance each impulse of the energy of love and light cannot be overestimated and renders an invaluable contribution to the work of light forces.

That have chosen support of earthlings in transition to The Fifth Dimension as their mission today we will go on talking about archangels and I will tell you in more details about the role played in the current events on Earth by the Archangel Michael.

His function can be well compared to the one performed by Ashtar Shiron the commandeering-chief of the Galaxy Light Federation.

But while Ashtar Sherin’s subordinates are embodied the troops of the arch angel Michael are disembodied creatures of light the former and the latter are in rather High Dimensions not lower than the fifth.

The Archangel Michael has long been respected by people as one of the most powerful Saints and the main patron of common people and finding himself in the seventh Dimension.

He nevertheless can interact with people through intermediaries as Angel creatures being among his forces in safe guard angels of people.

His service to people is protection of their energy space from the dark Forces and before all from astral
beings of all kinds who are in unceasing interaction with people.

What are the cases when he answers calls for help and considers he has the right to interfere in the processes taking place on Earth.

First of all when an ancient and pure soul is in danger the one that is switched over to service it should be
noted that such Souls from the very birth are in ward of the light forces because not only lives of thousands
of people depend on the successful fulfillment of their mission but sometimes Destinies of entire
countries and continents.

In exceptional cases from the very moment of such Souls incarnation on Earth it is protected by a huge Army
of the light forces that was just the case with Yeshua and Mary Magdalen till the very duon the crucifixion
of Yeshua that was planned by his soul before birth he was in ward of the light forces just as Mary Magdalena
who was to live many years after her beloved husband’s physical death.

The archangel Michael often helps soldiers but only those of them who protect their motherland and family not
those usurping other countries or conquering their citizens as you already know my dear.

Everything that occurs on Earth is formed at the subtle level first and the events taking place at the
physical level are always reflected at the subtle level too for example during military Army operations there are at the same time astral battles in the near Earth space when astral beings at one side and the light forces at the other imbue with energies the participants of these battles.

Thus aggressors are supported by the dark Forces that thereby fortify the formers aggression while those defending their motherland home and family are are assisted by the Light forces and before all by the
Archangel Michael and his team.

If before the fight Warriors mindfully invoke him his support can be more efficient since they for their part made an intention and showed free will but sometimes even without any request being made people can be supported because their Safeguard Angels ask the light forces for help.

So what kind of help can be provided, it is energy support first of all.
Infeed of the most powerful energies that strengthen one’s spirit and belief in oneself and at the Earthly
level there are Safeguard Angels who in cases of emergency can even interact with one physically saving one from bullets and giving various hints and clues.

At the subtle level astral beings who act at the other side are being dealt with they are aimed at with
flows of high vibration energies that they cannot withstand and that make them Retreat uh from the
Battleground.

I would like to go on with my story about the Archangel Michael and tell you how he manages to help everyone who calls him it is very hard for the people who live in the third dimension to realize how multifaceted and multi-dimensional divine creation is since their conscience is not ready for that.

Yet but at the higher levels of creation starting from the seventh density those existing there feature quite
different characteristics and can fragment themselves into endless numbers and this is how it occurs the closer this or that density of existence to the Creator the more Vivid and clear the way.

The Creator’s characteristics show in its inhabitants their conscience now can embrace the unlimited vast of the universe while their subtle bodies can be in many parts of it at the same time.

Changing their parameters if necessary of course the range of these changes is limited by certain bounds of a particular Dimension.

Yet by power of thought and strength of spirit a high vibration creature can make themselves considerably denser so as to help even those in the third dimension thus in an emergency the Archangel Michael himself can become dense enough for the fourth dimension but most often he provides help to People by means of his assistance from the huge team of the Angels who have chosen service to humanity as their mission.

To help you better understand all the complex multi- stage mechanism the light forces interact with you.
let s have a case study what happens when you invoke the Archangel Michael before going to sleep feeling the threat of danger from the dark Forces.

If your call is not automatic habitual or obligatory but it runs deep in your heart featuring love and
gratitude to the Archangel Michael and his assistance it will be heard by all means.

Your Safeguard angel will see to it after that the angels that intermediate between you and the Archangel
Michael carefully scan the subtle level and your energy space to estimate the level of the danger threatening
you and according to the results of this checkup the program of actions is being worked out.

Tthat is the level of your protection is being identified someone needs really intense protection while for
some other person the support of their own Safeguard Angel is sufficient.

In rare cases when the dark Forces are severely attacking the one who has switched over to service
the Archangel Michael himself gives one a helping hand too it happens when the battle with the high rank
demons is to take place.

Who that person stole a march on depriving them of the usual spoils as negative energies the most ancient and purest Souls embodied on Earth enjoyed and still enjoy such protection the ones who lead the way of thousands of people to light Reviving their conscience and making it free from the alien programs.

Untypical of it such support is provided to the creators of this site and to the site itself and I am really
happy that you my dear also participate in this each time.

When the dark Forces attacks on the site become aggravated and they try to block this un source of information flowing to Earth from the light forces here we will stop for today loving you endlessly fitter

War in heaven published 1988 and has long been out of print; ‘War in Heaven’ (WiH) consists of a dialog between Griffith and a “disembodied spirit” who claimed to be a member of a group calling itself ‘The Invisible College.’ Griffith states that the answers were received by automatic writing and read back to the contacted entity for review and correction.
The questions and answers that appear in the text are actually the result of several iterations of review and discussion.
The material thus generated is both convincing and compelling, and appears to be of vital importance to human society.
That is a claim we see all the time; this time I submit that the claim is truly justified. TThe intent was to use this material to enrich the discussions It is about magic, and magic, at times, is about sex.
These matters are all about the past, present, and future situation of the human race.
On the Soul Technology page, there is a type of matter having the same atomic and molecular structure as physical matter, but whose particles are much less dense, and whose gravitation does not interact with physical matter. This is called astral matter in WiH.
Every human has a somatic soul, closely resembling the physical body but made of astral matter, and an astral soul, also made of astral matter, which comprises the more permanent self.
Astral souls may or may not equate to higher selves as discussed in A Synthetic Myth. Spirits are simply astral souls operating without somatic souls and physical bodies. Hundreds of thousands of spirits from worlds with advanced technological civilizations have been sent to Earth by their governments to work with the Invisible College to assist humans in fighting a war to liberate us from the oppression and exploitation of Theocracy. Disembodied spirits are forced to incarnate after a few years.
When they do, they lose most of the memories they brought with them, especially after repeated reincarnations. However, they, as well as many native Earth people, can learn to communicate with the discarnate Invisible College on a completely conscious level. This requires “proper psychic training”. Any human being can receive telepathic messages from the Invisible College subconsciously.
Invisible College members consider themselves ordinary people like us. Their previous bodies, on their home worlds, may or may not have resembled ours, but they are based on the same basic genetic code.
The home worlds possess what we would call advanced knowledge in many scientific and humanistic fields. Of particular importance is their capability with psychic energy that can produce changes in astral matter. That technology was used to send them here, but they were not able to bring their equipment with them.
Their motives are both altruistic and selfish. Had they not intervened, the human race would have evolved in directions that posed a serious threat to their own worlds and space colonies.
So they are fighting a “preventive war” on their own behalf, but they also feel the overwhelming majority of Earth people will support their cause once they are able to explain the situation fully.
They operate mostly by influencing the subconscious minds of Earth people. They come from civilizations that actually practice “human dignity and rights,” “individual sovereignty,” “social justice,” “consent of the governed,” and “equality of
opportunity”.


Anyway, they say, “We are at war here, and we are fighting on your behalf as well as our own.” They must practice these social values, because they possess technology that would totally eliminate individuality if they did not have sufficient social, political, and ethical knowledge to keep the technology under control.

We are at war here, and we are fighting on your behalf as well as our own.” They must practice these social values, because they possess technology that would totally eliminate individuality if they did not have sufficient social, political, and ethical knowledge to keep the technology under control.
Their societies live with this threat, and we will eventually have to live with it too.
But the greatest danger we face in the next few decades (written in January 1987), is that
Theocracy and our exploding population will cause a spiritual cataclysm that will destroy the human race as it now exists and threaten their civilizations too if it goes unchecked.
They will probably be able to avert catastrophe and guide these upheavals in constructive directions, but the fate of many Earth people will still depend on their own actions. The concept of a Theocrat as a human who chooses to exert power over and ultimately to consume other humans, rather than to undergo reincarnation many notorious tyrants, conquerors, evil religious leaders, black magicians, and criminals have become Theocrats after death, but so have some people whom history calls saints or benign geniuses. This is due to the well-known tendency of power to corrupt, not to mention the prospect of achieving immortality (though most are and eventually destroyed by other Theocrats).


This has been especially true of people who were religiously devout, and then found out the horrible truth about their Gods after death.

Theocrats as a class have ruled both the Earth and its astral
plane throughout most of human history. This includes most of the medieval Popes and other religious leaders notorious for being cynical and power-hungry. It also includes many famous occult leaders, from Cagliostro down to Aleister Crowley. The Theocrats’ method of absorbing energy from other spirits affects their growth patterns, causing their astral soul to go out of balance, and eventually driving them into irrational, insane, and self-destructive behavior. Theocrats acquire bands of enslaved spirits, containing from a couple of dozen to several thousand, with the average in the low hundreds.
Most of the activities have to do with the survival of the band and especially its dictator, recruiting new members from among the recently deceased, stealing souls from other bands, fighting to keep the Invisible College from liberating members of the band, etc.


Each Theocratic band works with a corresponding group of living people, whether religious, occult, political, or of other common interests: popular music, sports, or centered on other media. Theocrats can be found hanging around almost any place where crowds gather.
(Remember that the astral plane is not a “place”. It is right here, but of a different density.) Theocrats communicating telepathically to individual Christians when they pray may call themselves God or Christ or the Holy Spirit… what ever they believers expect. They also may claim to be angels or saints or devils as appropriate. Some people who deliberately become Satanists on Earth hold positions of power in “Hell” after they die. Who goes to Heaven or Hell is mostly determined by which particular band of Theocrats gets to them as they’re in the process of dying. The Moslem, Hindu, and Buddhist mythologies are also theocratic institutions designed to imprison souls of believers in their own forms of Heaven or Hell.
With the decline in fanatical belief in organized religion, Theocrats have devised ways to persuade atheists and agnostics to join bands organized as any type of community of spirits, such as previously deceased relatives or friends, or some famous person they greatly admire, rock stars, politicians, movie stars, writers and scientists, even fictional characters.


Theocratic religious sects often forbid deliberate mediumistic contact with the spirit world precisely because of this need to protect knowledge of the true nature of the afterlife.
Every single one of the ideas at the core of traditional deistic doctrine is a lie:
1 Only God (under whatever name) is good; people are basically evil and are incapable of improving themselves morally by their own efforts.
2 Only God is naturally immortal, but people can gain immortality through proper service to the Deity.
3 Human beings can receive forgiveness for their sins, and divine strength to prop up their various weaknesses, by ‘Letting God into their hearts’… that is, by creating a
powerful psychic bond between themselves and the deity. The important thing to realize about this whole body of lies is that it makes people weaker and more evil than they already are, and increases their dependency on the Theocrats.

Religious Mind Control
The methodology of religious mind control is what modern psychologists know as “operant conditioning”: altering behavior and mental programming by positive and negative reinforcement on the physical and sensory level. But Theocrats
strengthen this conditioning by transmitting ideas and emotions directly into people’s subconscious minds by telepathy. And they use people’s own psychic powers to control
other members of the congregation. The key to the technique is putting people into a state of consciousness best called the “religious trance” — a mild hypnotic trance in which the conscious will is awake but passive. People in this condition are completely aware of what is going on around them, and are recording these events in their memories exactly as they would in a normal waking state. They are also capable of thinking and acting voluntarily, but can do so only within certain very definite limits without breaking out of the religious trance and assuming normal consciousness.
People enter a very similar state when they read, listen to music, watch television or a movie, listen intently to a lecture or radio broadcast, etc. The passive state of the will
is often called “identification with the sensory intake,” which means accepting the sensory intake uncreatively and uncritically on both the intellectual and emotional levels. People enter a very similar state when they read, listen to music, watch television or a movie, listen intently to a lecture or radio broadcast, etc. (advertising)The passive state of the will is often called “identification with the sensory intake,” which means accepting the sensory intake uncreatively and uncritically on both the intellectual and emotional levels. It also means agreeing with the ideas being presented and feeling the same emotions being described in the song, story, play, etc.
This is a rather light trance. If the material being presented begins to contradict the person’s existing opinions or knowledge, identification breaks down. He or she assumes full normal consciousness and thinks, “I don’t agree with this,” or “I don’t understand this,” or “This is wrong.” But identification with sensory input can make people accept
things they would reject if they were fully conscious, as long as the input isn’t controversial or unfamiliar enough to break their concentration.
Once the conscious will becomes passive, electrical energy within the nervous system changes slightly in character, assuming a level closer to that during sleep than that during normal wakefulness. In a person fully trained to enter the religious trance, electrical activity stabilizes at exactly the right level to allow an equal flow of energy into and out of the astral soul. This allows the “astral will” to awaken partially, and creates a direct, two-way link between the physical mind and the astral mind.
(Griffith’s guide had explained that during incarnated life, a human’s physical and astral mind normally alternate in being conscious, the former when “awake”, and the latter when “asleep.”) This allows information to pass reasonably freely between the physical mind and the astral mind and vice versa. Also, the physical mind can receive impressions from the psychic senses of the astral soul more or less directly. This type of trance is controlled by outside sensory input into both the physical and astral minds. It is a passive state used to control and brainwash people.


When religious believers say they “feel the presence of God” at church services, they are referring to telepathic communication. Most of this intake comes from other members of
the congregation; this is usually a more powerful influence than anything sent by spirits.
So there is a sort of “psychic chain reaction” that occurs, as every member of the congregation influences the emotions and thinking of every other member, like a box of matches catching fire or an atomic chain reaction. This process creates a “religious group

Religious and electronic mind control
This state of religious ecstasy and emotions do generate large amounts of psychic energy. Any Theocratic
spirits present may directly absorb part of that energy, but most of it is diverted back into the physical
mind of the members of the congregation to indoctrinate them with whatever the Theocrats want them to believe
or feel or do. This is the essence of religious mind control.
In other words, a Theocratic spirit sends a telepathic message into the minds of people in such a state of
religious ecstasy, and they generate powerful surges of telepathically-
transmitted emotion that program them to believe and act on the messages they receive. For example, the idea
“Abortion is murder” might generate powerful feelings of hate, whereas “All Christians shall be as brethren”
might generate feelings of familial love among all the members of the congregation.
People being controlled by this method enjoy it more than anything else in life. It is highly addictive.
Theocrats make the religious mind-control process as addictive as possible to enslave believers. The whole
vicious circle of sin, guilt, and forgiveness was deliberately designed to create a cycle of addiction that
is almost impossible to break.
The last thing Theocrats want is for religious believers to stop sinning. That is why they made sexual
pleasure a sin. Sexual desire originates on the biochemical level and cannot
be extinguished by manipulating the programming of the mind. (In this context, “mind” is defined as
“The information stored in the brain, plus the software for retrieving and processing that information.”)
Theocrats do not confine their activities to religion and occultism, but corrupt and control human beings
through all activities that produce certain states of altered consciousness.
Examples include using electronic media for passive recreational purposes — listening to popular music over
the radio or on recordings, watching televised sports events and game shows, and playing the simpler computer
games.
The Theocrats know a lot more about psychology than people do. In a crude analogy with computers, it is as
though people can handle data input and output, and some have enough professional skills to modify some
programs slightly, but the Theocrats not only know the software far more completely, but also have much easier
access to the special “command mode” used to modify it. This command mode is the telepathic chain
reaction used in religious mind control. Of course, trained human psychics also have access to it, and so do
spirits in the Invisible College, but it is still extremely difficult to free people from Theocratic control.
The mind of the average person is run by software designed by the Theocrats to keep people from consciously
finding out they exist.
They simply can’t understand or believe it, because the very mental programs they use for understanding and
believing things, and drawing rational conclusions from certain kinds of information, were designed by the
Theocrats. Programming.
In their explanation of the Theocrats’ programming techniques, Griffith’s guides note that memory storage
and retrieval in the human mind is a cumulative rather than an absolute
process. Data has to be received repeatedly, if details are to be recorded, and should be periodically
retrieved. Otherwise it will be automatically forgotten.
An organism’s behavioral response to stimuli depends on the quantity and quality of reinforcement that it
receives for performing that response. What was described as the “religious trance state” occurs in many
different places besides religious services, enabling Theocrats to practice mind control on crowds attending
sporting events, in gambling casinos,at political rallies, during musical concerts of many types, and in a
number of other places.
The Invisible College used the rock concerts, peace demonstrations, “love-ins,” and similar events of the
Sixties for exactly the same purposes. Before that, Griffith’s guides state, they used meetings of fraternal
organizations, a variety of progressive political meetings, and even the circuses and carnivals that used to
visit every American village and town, as the Theocrats used, and still use, touring revival meetings.
Both groups practice religious mind control to reprogram people whenever they get the opportunity.
I personally was involved with an “esoteric group” which at the time of the Apollo lunar landing in 1969 was
asked to inject a certain concept into the mass mind of the human race while it was distracted or in a light
trance state watching the landing on television. The concept had nothing whatever to do with the landing event.

It was expressed as follows: “Individual responsibility interacting social responsibility.”
The peculiar syntax was emphatically confirmed and the reason for this is anything but obvious; no explanation
was given.
This was the kind of mind control we are discussing here, and I was participating as a sort of junior or
apprentice controller! This experience confirms that such activities do take place. I believe it came from
the Invisible College, not Theocrats.
Griffith’s guides state that even though most of the individual facts that make up the model of spiritual
reality presented in this book are already available to the public, very few people are capable of assembling
them into a coherent theory. This is because the mental programs they use to draw conclusions from information
on spiritual subjects were deliberately designed by the Theocrats to be illogical and irrational.
Seventeen years after the book was published, I have scanned the Internet looking for any signs that the book
had made an impact or is even remembered today. I found only two or three references on the Web, and to me
they seemed to be from people who were completely demented. This caused me momentarily to question my own
sanity! a long description of how principles of positive and negative reinforcement are used to maintain
people’s beliefs.
Rituals, for example, are of great value when they remain relatively stable. This is one of the principal
reasons why Theocratic religion is socially and politically conservative or reactionary.
According to basic behaviorist theory, the book states, human personality, including the mental programs that
people use to evaluate data and decide what is true and false, is
conditioned into them by their physical environment. Even if you leave direct telepathic programming during religious mind control out of the picture, people still receive their
programming from both their physical and social environments.
Programming from the physical environment usually favors empirical thinking, which the Invisible College strongly encourages,but that from the social environment favors
acceptance of doctrine on faith.
A large part of the customs and beliefs and instinctive emotional reactions that make up this social environment were created by Theocratic religion. The further back you go into
human history, the greater the percentage of people who were devout believers in Theocratic religion and were subjected to religious mind control to a significant degree throughout their lives.
The hold of Theocratic religion on most of Earth’s living population did not begin to weaken until the modern era, from about the 1300s down to the present. And even today, the greater part of the population is still subject to religious mind control.
Modern civilization does program people with personality structures that resist religious mind control, but the Theocrats have been able to counter by resorting to electronic
mind control.
Electronic Mind control
Undoubtedly if the book were to be updated, it would take up a discussion of the role of the Web in supporting a sort of mass mind of humanity.
Griffith’s guides begin the discussion of electronic mind control by noting that the technology works on two different levels, just as religious mind control does. Recall that
religious mind control works by putting people into an altered state of consciousness similar to a light hypnotic trance and how the thinking and behavior of people in such a religious trance can be influenced by what they experience through the physical senses during the service. In other words, the preacher’s words can have the same effect as post-hypnotic suggestions during regular hypnosis.
Electronic mind control does exactly the same thing, and often to an even greater degree. It is also even more addictive than religious mind control. Like religious mind control, electronic mind control works on two different levels, one physical and one psychic.
The physical level can be directly observed with the physical senses and analyzed with the conscious intellect. Many researchers have described the uses of subliminals in media
and how to spot them. The psychic component of electronic or media mind control
employs completely different mechanisms and one needs to be careful not to confuse them. It is also important to distinguish between the psychic phenomena of religious mind control, which function most
efficiently when the people or spirits involved are spatially close to another, as though the effect were broadcast and subject to inverse-square-law energy radiation, and a second, non-broadcast system for transmitting and receiving energies between human souls.
Reminiscent of the old Greek myth about the “Threads of Destiny” woven by the Goddesses called the Fates, threads actually exist, but they aren’t woven by superhuman beings.
They are “transmission lines” of astral matter connecting one soul to another, and they allow telepathic communications over greater distances and with greater power than can be accomplished by ordinary “broadcast” telepathy.
These threads are created spontaneously when astral souls come into contact with one another while generating large amounts of psychic energy. Whenever the astral mind is in the correct state of consciousness, generating these threads is as natural and automatic as the process that spiders use to leave a silk strand behind them when they travel. Added to the material about religious mind control given in the previous section, this additional theoretical information explains how television evangelists can exert a direct psychic influence over their congregations from a distance.
The process has two possible starting points. First, people who regularly attend Christian church services dominated by the Theocrats are urged to watch certain television
evangelists and to listen to designated religious radio broadcasts. Over the years, an elaborate network of astral transmission lines has been built up to link the religious
broadcasters to the clergy of Theocratic congregations all over the country, and through them, to the masses of ordinary members.

These psychic threads are put in place when radio and TV preachers are invited to hold services at church conventions, or when a group of churches hosts a large local revival meeting with a media evangelist, or someone working for one, as a guest. This method is used primarily to link the churches to the hundreds of second-rank broadcast evangelists with regional or local media followings. The superstar evangelists who already have national followings reverse this procedure: they invite the ministers and elders of selected churches all over the country to visit their studios and become part of the in-house congregation during their broadcasts. In either case, psychic linkages are stablished
between the media evangelist and the local churches. Some of the more ambitious TV evangelists have also directly linked large numbers of ordinary members of Theocratic congregations – and hundreds of thousands of new converts as well – into their electronic mind control networks by periodically holding huge, live revival meetings. (They are people who have little or no interest in organized religion. It’s centered on major spectator sports, organized gambling, and the communications media that service both, and it controls more people than all the Fundamentalist churches and TV evangelists combined. It doesn’t program people’s surface thinking and behavior as thoroughly as Theocratic religion does, because People don’t have to be watching a sermon or listening to a hymn to receive subconscious telepathic messages from the very same spirits who control Fundamentalist religion; they only have to be in the correct state of altered consciousness (which TV and radio produces automatically in all members of the audience who haven’t learned specific techniques for preventing it), and they have to have the transmission lines of astral matter implanted in the right part of their soul, linking them into the network.
(This idea of connecting lines to the right part of the soul reminds one of Carlos Castañeda’s mention of “shifting the assemblage point,” a location on the “luminous cocoon” of awareness where all the fibers of the universe are focused into our perception of the universe.)
So live sports events and casino gambling serve the same function in this network as church services and revival meetings do in the electronic religious mind control networks. Compulsive gambling, especially on sports events through an enormous
electronic bookmaking network, plays the same role as does the cycle of sin/guilt/forgiveness in Theocratic religion.
And the Theocrats are now actively expanding this form of mind control. Many states have legalized various forms of gambling that plug people into the networks just described: state lotteries, horse racing (including off-track betting), bingo, card parlors, etc. It’s no accident that gambling expands on both the in-person and media levels as the Fundamentalist churches and TV evangelism decline. The Theocrats are shifting their
attention to activities more natural to the average opinions and lifestyles of present-day Americans.
Casino gambling in Nevada is one of the most important battlefields in the war between the Theocrats and the Invisible College. Once Theocratic spirits get their control threads on people gambling in the casinos, they continue to send telepathic messages into the minds of these people whenever they watch certain television programs, especially sports events and game shows.
Griffith responds with the advice that people who want to gamble do it in private games with friends, or at local bingo or card clubs if such are legal where they live. These forms of gambling can still plug people into an electronic mind-control network, but they’re less dangerous than the Nevada casinos. Going to Reno or Vegas or
Atlantic City to gamble for fun would be like going “out on the town” in Saigon during the late Sixties.

Development and minimize the danger if they are careful to remain in a normal state of consciousness. This means: don’t
sample the free drinks, and above all, don’t gamble for more than an hour at a time. If you get at all intoxicated or spaced out from fatigue, the Theocrats can put you into the same type of trance that people go into at religious services, and start brainwashing you. working mostly through popular music and pop culture in general. Once people have been to a certain number of live rock concerts, whether huge ones in sports stadiums or small ones in clubs, then they are permanently linked into a media mind control network run by the Invisible College, and they receive subconscious telepathic messages every time they listen to the right kind of music on the radio or on their own stereo systems.
The song lyrics perform the same function in this process as sermons do in religious media mind control. It’s hard to hear the channeled messages in song lyrics. Most of them are subliminal unless you go to special efforts to pick them out word-by-word, and when you do extract them, they’re written in an elaborate jargon and code. People who are part of the mind control network learn a deep instinctive understanding of this code, but few can paraphrase the content of the messages into plain English. The Invisible College does use sports and gambling for reprogramming when they can seize control of part of the network, while the Theocrats have a large and powerful following in the popular music world.
The Invisible College has a word of advice to conscious psychics and magicians who may be hostile to all forms of involuntary mental reprogramming: they can help people learn to defend themselves consciously against it by, for example, employing “clearing” rituals, which should be widely and publicly performed. Of course, this will also knock out “beneficial mind-control linkages” so they recommend people be prepared to create new beneficial linkages of their own. At this point, the discussion touched on sex and drug magic.
Millions of Americans now practice relatively advanced forms of sex and drug magic without bothering to learn the intellectual knowledge traditionally associated with such practices in both the East and the West. Many such experimenters have been hurt trying this, but a large number have gotten to the point where they can channel down instructions directly from spirits. However, because they have never bothered to learn the
associated spiritual, cosmological, philosophical, and ethical systems, they are almost totally ignorant of how to identify the political faction a particular spirit belongs to on the astral plane, so their channeled information is usually a mishmash from many different sources.
But most have been
evolving into more advanced types or have been replaced with outside religions since these peoples came into contact with foreigners over the past few hundred years.
The terms “primitive” and “advanced” are from the viewpoint of the Theocrats, who judge a religious system by how well it allows them to control every phase of human thinking and behavior, especially the conscious use of the psychic powers. Most shamanistic religions teach that some spirits eat souls. However, the information is usually encoded in such a way that the believers, including the shamans, do not realize that the “Eaters of Souls” are their own Gods. Instead, the Eaters of Souls are said to be the Gods of enemy tribes, or spirits that are very different from human beings (such as the Windigos of various Amerind tribes), or the ghosts of human criminals and
outcasts. The shamantic religions usually teach that the tribe’s own Gods protect people from the Eaters of Souls. Griffith states that he himself feels a deep instinctive fear that maybe the Theocrats can in fact forcibly take over the minds of living people or somehow damage their souls.Their control over people is indirect, exercised mostly by programming the subconscious mind. They can’t overwhelm the conscious will of any normal person, only the wills of people with seriously damaged physical or astral minds; and they can’t directly harm or enslave the soul when it is incarnated. Second-stage theocratic societies, then, were large, densely populated, totalitarian, and practiced human sacrifice on a large scale. The most important factor is deism: belief in Gods that are omnipotent or at least significantly superhuman. This separates the higher levels of Theocratic religion from primitive shamanism, which considers the Gods rather similar to earthly shamans, except that they are disembodied spirits.
Often they are simply called “the Spirits of Our Ancestors” or “The Shamans in the Spirit World.”
The reason that second-stage Theocratic religion practiced mass human sacrifice was to supply the Theocrats with a constant food supply. When the victims were killed as part of a large public religious ceremony, the telepathic chain reaction generated by a congregation in the religious trance was sufficient to put the victims’ astral souls into a hypnotic trance before death. When they were suddenly and violently killed, the Theocrats were usually able to get control of the souls before they had a chance to flee. This is one of the few examples in the history of Theocracy where the Theocrats were able to seize souls by force, and they could do it only with the help of large numbers of living people. It seemed to him that the ancient Egyptians and Hebrews were not societies with second-stage Theocratic religions.

The guides replied that both were in the third stage when they first appeared in written historical records, and archaeological evidence shows that they probably went directly from the first stage to the third, as did the Greeks and the rest of the Western Aryan peoples. The second stage of Theocratic religion was a failed experiment from the Theocratic point of view.
Third Stage
The third stage of Theocratic religion involves mass animal sacrifices. Although they prefer human souls, Theocratic spirits can nourish themselves off the astral souls of lower animals to some extent. And these souls are easier to paralyze and control with religious rituals than human souls are. However, the astral tissues of animal souls aren’t very compatible with the astral souls of the Theocrats, so they are not a good food source.

History
Third-stage Theocrats tend to be short-lived, except that they also receive some nourishment from the psychic energy generated by their worshippers, which is better for them than the animal souls alone. Even more important, most of the major third-stage religions have had some fourth-stage components as well. This was especially true of the ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, Hindus, and Western Aryan Pagans. Judaism and Vedanta eventually evolved into fully-developed fourth-stage religions. The others survived
for a long time with a mixture of the two. One of the chief characteristics of all third-stage Theocratic religions was that their practices were not much concerned with the condition of life after death. Religious practice in third-stage religions was concerned almost entirely with gaining the favor of the Gods during earthly life, not with life after death.
The Theocrats running such religions didn’t know how to enslave souls on the astral plane, so they ignored them. Instead, they programmed living people to send them the souls of sacrificed animals, and to broadcast psychic energy during orgiastic rituals.

Fourth Stage
The fourth stage of Theocratic religion is the one represented by all the major modern religions. Its most important characteristic is that the Theocrats use religious mind control to delude souls into deliberately putting themselves under Theocratic control after death, thinking they are entering “eternal bliss in Heaven” or “union with the Godhead.” I cannot leave this topic without drawing a comparison with the stages of religion as outlined by Paul Von Ward in Gods, Genes, and Consciousness.
Note that “religion” does not equate with “Theocracy” as
defined in War in Heaven.
1 The Theocracy is a particular group of beings and a power
structure. It is largely non-physical.
2 Religion is a social activity, seemingly organized by humans in response to a sensed divinity (in the case of modern religions), but putatively fostered and controlled by the Theocracy. Von Ward’s information is derived from a liberal analysis of historical and archaeological data.
From his sources, he constructs a model of intervention into a preexisting naturalistic human culture. The model of Griffith’s presentation is derived from non-physical players who can view the Theocrats on their level of being and action. The stages described by Griffith are as they are seen from the inside, as it were, and in terms of the needs and aims of the Theocracy, for whom the Gods of religions are fictionalized stand-ins.
A crucial difference between the two scenarios is in the nature of the ABs (Advanced Beings). Griffith’s Theocrats would definitely qualify as belonging to the class of Von Ward’s ABs, but they did not come swooping down onto humanity in its naturalistic state, as Von Ward suggests. Rather, in the War in Heaven scenario, they were already present at that stage.
Note: The dialogs between Kyle Griffith and his guides from the Invisible College, as quoted or characterized in this section of the notes and throughout the book, may give the impression that English is the common language used between astral entities.
Of course this cannot be true, and even the status of language as we know it would be dubious. Indeed, Griffith clarifies this issue in a private communication:
“…neither the mind contained in the embodied astral soul nor the astral minds
of disembodied spirits use English or any other human language. Instead, they use entirely different “pre-verbal” symbols to encode information.
The speech center in the physical mind then translates these into ordinary human language.”
The name “Invisible College” is just a collective term in
common use on the astral plane to describe all disembodied spirits who are not members of Theocratic bands and are not merely lost souls wandering around helpless because they can’t
function effectively in the spirit world.
A synonym in wide use is “free spirits,” which contains play on words because “free” is used in two senses at once. It means, “free of Theocratic control” simultaneously with “free to move around the astral plane at will and communicate telepathically with other spirits.”
There are three main groups of spirits in the Invisible College: enlightened ones, magicians, and space people. Enlightened Ones
Most of these spirits were highly advanced in spiritual knowledge and the use of their psychic powers during life, but they were also devout believers in some sect of the Eastern religious system that includes Vedanta and Buddhism. They were wise enough to refuse to join the Theocratic bands associated with their particular sect after death, because they could psychically perceive the enslavement and exploitation going on
in the various Heavens.
(Few of the Western occultists who have called themselves “Illuminati” or some other synonym of “enlightened ones” join this group after physical death; most become magicians or Theocrats.)
The enlightened ones could be very useful to the cause of the Invisible College, but few of them are willing to stay on the astral plane and help actively fight Theocracy. They believe that the Theocratic perversions of Heaven they observe there, are illusions, and that perceiving such illusions proves that they are not yet advanced enough to liberate themselves from the cycle of rebirth. So they go back and live another earthly
life, always hoping that the next time they die they will be worthy to enter the true Heaven. They consider the War in Heaven an illusion and run away from it, back into earthly existence, which they also consider illusory.
The idea that much of the universe is “maya” or illusion is just Theocratic propaganda, and the refusal of the enlightened ones to help in the war against Theocracy is a perfect example of how effective it is. Physical life on Earth is no illusion, nor is existence as a disembodied spirit on the astral plane. What’s illusory is the claim of the Theocrats to be the Gods of various religions, and the lie that their Heavens offer the human soul eternal life.
What happens to saints in the Judeo-Christian religions after death?
Most become Theocrats if they are devout members of Theocratic churches during life.
However, some people who claimed to work miracles through faith in religious doctrine have become magician spirits after death. They were really occultists whose faith was merely a sham to allow them to work within the religious establishment.
However, even some believers in the Western religious systems whose psychic powers are highly developed are still quite vulnerable to being enslaved by the Theocrats after death, whereas similar people in the East often remain free of Theocratic control and go on incarnating. This is because the Eastern religions teach belief in reincarnation as part of their official doctrine.
Theocrats persuade many of the saints in western fourth-stage Theocratic religion to reincarnate. Often they become charismatic preachers who win large numbers of new converts, or religious leaders who increase the power of churches over the whole of society. In the process, they may become so corrupted by earthly power that they eventually become TheocratsMagicians, living or disembodied, tend to be practical people, not mystics or “true believers.” Most of the spirit guides who assist occultists all over the
world in obtaining spiritual knowledge and in learning conscious control of their psychic powers are magicians. The Theocrats are seriously frightened of the work these spirits do, which explains why Fundamentalist propaganda contains such stern warnings against contacting them.
This accounts for the propaganda against Ouija boards and other aids that help people achieve independent, consciously controlled contact with disembodied spirits. The warnings about demonic possession through engaging in mediumistic workings
are especially ironic, as the spirit-contact that Fundamentalists achieve at services using religious mind control are much closer to the descriptions of “possession” than what happens to occultists when they hold mediumistic conversations with spirits.
But passing information to people with conscious mediumistic powers is one of the less important things magicians; do, because there aren’t very many conscious spirit mediums.
However, the magician spirits can communicate telepathically with a much larger segment of the living population on a strictly subconscious level, and do so very frequently. Such spirits are responsible for many experiences that people call prophetic dreams, flashes of insight, hunches, intuition, instinctive knowledge, etc. However, some of the experiences assigned these names are entirely the product of the person’s own The response:
“Would you rather be drafted into the army to fight against beings as evil as Hitler, or to fight on their side?”
Most Earth people simply don’t have the psychic strength of spiritual knowledge to remain neutral in the war between the Theocrats and the Invisible College. If the Invisible College doesn’t manipulate them subconsciously, then the Theocrats will do so anyway. Their own code of ethics applies the principle of “greatest good.” An individual manipulated by both sides is better off than if he or she were influenced by the
Theocrats alone.
As to “informed consent,” this book and hundreds of similar
attempts to communicate the same information are intended to provide the general public with the information they need to make a choice. They call this “making a personal breakthrough in spiritual consciousness.”
They want people to learn enough about how mind control operates to avoid situations that expose them to it.
Even now, when very few people are consciously aware of the nature of Theocracy and the forces opposing it, the Invisible College thinks their methods are still more ethical than those of the Theocrats and their religions. Brainwashing people with religious mind control is the Theocrats’ strategy of first choice, whereas the Invisible College employs .

but it’s still a major problem.
In many cases, people who had read a lot of occult literature during life put up more resistance to understanding the true nature of Theocracy than atheists, agnostics, and even some believers in orthodox religion. It’s actually easier to show religious people that their Gods are impostors than it is to show occultists that there are no “planes higher than the astral.” Many of them tell us, “OK, so some Heavens are really Hells of psychic vampirism. I’m going to keep looking until I find one that’s not.” Unfortunately, there are Theocratic bands specifically designed to entrap spirits like this,bands run by Theocrats who were occultists themselves during life.
Griffith observes that the Invisible College faces the same problems in dealing with people on the astral plane as he has in getting people on Earth to accept the information described in this book. There are thousands of years of false knowledge to overcome, and virtually every body of available spiritual information is heavily corrupted with Theocratic propaganda. It strikes him as miraculous that the Invisible College was able
to start teaching such knowledge widely, both on the astral plane and on Earth.

Space People
Griffith’s guides state that about seven hundred years ago, scientists from their world established two-way
contact with spirits on Earth’s astral plane. Accidents in interstellar transportation had already marooned
quite a few extraterrestrial spirits on Earth, but they were not capable of communicating with the societies
they’d come from.
(Ironically, psychic machines capable of establishing such communication existed on Earth’s astral plane,
but none of the spirits who came here by accident possessed the specialized skills for using them.)
Of course, such spirits were forced to reincarnate periodically, and every time they did so,they lost a
portion of their original memories. This meant that Earth people remained ignorant of the basic facts about
spiritual reality, including the true nature of the Theocratic spirits who claim to be Gods. There were
always a few spirits around who knew the truth, but they were seldom able to communicate more than hints of
it to others before they lost the memory of who they were and where they came from. The two-way contact
roughly coincided with the beginnings of modern Western civilization. There are numerous passages in occult
literature from the late Middle Ages on about telepathic conversations between mediums and spirit entities
who resemble modern UFO-contactee descriptions of space people much more than they do the traditional angels,
demons, or spirits of deceased Earth peopleAs to why the spirits from advanced civilizations couldn’t take
some kind of direct action against the Theocrats right at the beginning, it simply wasn’t possible. The space
people don’t come here physically, but as naked spirits transmitted across vast distances. We come with a
certain amount of knowledge, a small part of which we can communicate directly to Earth people, and with
psychic powers that are highly trained but not especially powerful in terms of force.
The average Theocratic spirit is actually “stronger” than one of us in terms of sheer ability to radiate
psychic energy as a disembodied spirit.
The reason is that a normal spirit can transmit only limited amounts of astral energy through the psychic
powers – less than that which can be radiated by the psychic powers of a similar spirit incarnated in a
physical body. But Theocratic spirits are not bound by this limitation, because they don’t keep their astral
soul in a normal condition. Instead, they absorb energy from other spirits and grow as much as they can.
Abnormal growth gives them access to more internal astral energy and hence stronger psychic powers than a
normal spirit possesses.
Satan
The whole mythology of Satan and the Rebellion of the Angels
was the creation of spirits fighting Theocracy long ago, and the original teachings of the Buddha contain
similar elements. Does using terms like “Satan” invite accusations of being “devil-worshippers?” They respond
that they have good reason to use terms that encourage people to take a closer look at the Biblical myths
about Satan.
But the Invisible College rejects “worship” as the term is usually defined:
“Absolute, unquestioning belief in and obedience to a spiritual being or a body of doctrine.” Individual
sovereignty is the most fundamental postulate of the philosophy of the Invisible College. Each person must
assume full responsibility for making value judgments on ethical and political matters. The Invisible College
never advocates absolute obedience to ANY authority, even their own. They urge people to resist orders from
leaders if they disagree with them, and to use laws, customs, and ideologies only as guides for making their
own decisions on specific issues. Assuming personal responsibility for running their own lives makes people
wiser and stronger.
Satan has a much more favorable image in literature and folk tradition in all the Judeo-Christian cultures
than you’d expect him to have if he was really the archetype of reversed Biblical morality that religious
doctrine claims he is.

Look at all the folk tales in which the Devil simply opposes the puritanical, “blue-nose” aspects of Christian
morality that say that sex and other sensual pleasures are intrinsically evil.
The Theocrats want religious believers to feel guilty every time they feel sexual desire or enjoy any
“pleasures of the flesh.” The guilt literally addicts them to attending church services that subject them to
religious mind control. When the Devil of folk tradition says that sensual pleasure is not immoral in itself,
then he is actually advocating an ethical code superior to the Judeo-Christian oneThe core of Jewish doctrine
from the time of Moses down to the present has been that Jehovah is both an angry, judgmental deity who
condemns people for Original Sin, and a loving God who forgives their sins after various acts of faith and
ritual atonement.
“Was the Hebrew Pagan deity Satan originally a God in serpentine form like Damballa and some of the other
African trickster deities?” Possibly. We really don’t know.

What we’re telling you here is mostly derived from our knowledge of modern religious and occult works,
supplemented to some extent by rumors that have circulated on the astral plane for thousands of years.
We have no exact historical details on any of this, just educated guesses. However, the choice of a serpent
image for the deity that tempted people into disobeying Jehovah is obvious if you realize that it was enemies
of Theocracy who dictated the myth in the form in which we know it.
The serpent was intended as a symbol of reincarnation, because snakes shed their skins, leaving behind a
casting that resembles a dead snake to a casual glance, while the animal crawls on about its business with a
shiny, new, young-looking skin. The process by which the Theocrats dictate “holy writ” to religious believers is,
like that used for this book, some form of automatic writing or other mediumistic reception of data from spirits on the astral plane. The only difference is that the spirits involved are Theocrats instead of members of the Invisible College. Griffith realizes that he has to be responsible for that, to ensure that what he receives is internally consistent and agrees with his own rational judgment based on the evidence
available in his memory.

Jehovah says, “Right and wrong are only what I tell you they are, and they are absolute values that never vary.”
Satan, on the other hand, says, “Use your intellect to determine what is right and wrong in a given situation,
because such value judgments are highly dependent on the environment you’re in at a given time.” Since the
latter statement is rational and the former irrational, people are put into conflict with Theocratic religious
doctrine every time they use their intellect to make rational value judgments. The Theocrats don’t want people
to become consciously aware of the basically illogical nature of absolute moral doctrine, but there is nothing they can do about it. The more highly developed a person’s rational intellect, the less likely he or she is to accept religious doctrine on “blind faith.” The Theocrats tried to obscure the information about using the intellect to make ethical decisions on a rational basis. They added many extraneous details to the mythology about Satan. For example, they included the idea that telepathy, mediumship, and other human psychic powers are either “works of God” or “works of the Devil.” This allows them to forbid religious believers to communicate with spirits hostile to Theocracy without revealing various facts about spiritual reality that the Theocrats wish to conceal. However, even gradual reprogramming can produce some extremely evil and violent people if it continues over a whole lifetime. There are plenty of people in this country right now who are emotionally and morally capable of “killing a Commie for Christ” or acting on the literal meaning of the Biblical passage, “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
“The Tree of Life. (Life is immortal from origin.)
As the serpent myth represents the concept that people have the right to determine good and evil for themselves
through the free exercise of the conscious intellect, the Tree of Life represents certain essential details
of the breakthrough information – the concepts that people can only achieve immortality through reincarnation
and that the “eternal life in heaven” offered by deities is a delusion.
However, you must remember that the Tree of Life is mentioned only so the Theocrats can gloat that they
prevented people from gaining this knowledge. (Mathilda)
The secret referred to in this passage is not just mmortality, but the complete knowledge that Theocratic
spirits have about the nature of the soul, reincarnation, psychic powers, etc.

Buddha
The beginning of Buddhism is a similar case in which enemies of Theocracy tried to help people make the
breakthrough but didn’t quite succeed. After the Buddha achieved enlightenment, he made some statements that
seemed self-contradictory, at least on the surface. He attributed his spiritual progress to his own efforts,
not to a “gift” from omnipotent deities. He also stated in so many words that ordinary people could achieve
enlightenment through practicing the proper psychic development techniques.
But at the same time, his statements about reincarnation appeared paradoxical. He said that achieving
enlightenment meant that he no longer needed to reincarnate, but he also said that he would continue to do so
to help other people achieve enlightenment. They state that what the Buddha called his enlightenment is
actually a version of the breakthrough – that is, he became consciously aware of exactly what the Vedantic
Gods really are and how they operate. But the words in which his followers wrote down his knowledge are
somewhat confusing. (airl)
They understood the most important part of his message quite clearly: the path to enlightenment is the
disciplined practice of various psychic development techniques. Notice too that the Buddha himself didn’t
limit his followers in which specific techniques they used, because part of his knowledge must have been that
different techniques work better for a given individual than others. He was quite vague on this, and Buddhists
ever since have practiced a wide variety of techniques drawn from Yoga, Tantra, and other sources within
Vedanta.
However, the basic teachings of Buddha are anti-deistic whereas those of Vedanta were highly deistic.
Many modern Buddhists believe that if they personally achieve enlightenment, their souls will merge with the
soul of Buddha into Nirvana, a “state of blissful nothingness.”
Vedantic doctrine in the time of the Buddha already taught that enlightened souls would merge with Brahma or
some other God. This doctrine was grafted onto the Buddha’s teachings after his death, when Buddhism was taken
over by the Vedantic Theocrats.
Buddhism was originally founded to fight Theocracy, as were Gnosticism and some forms of early Christianity.
The Buddha implied by his own example that the enlightened were capable of transcending reincarnation but
deliberately chose not to do so in order to be of service to the human race. The Buddha realized he could
become a Theocrat and remain on the astral plane indefinitely, but he refused to do so for ethical reasons.
This interpretation of the early Buddhist teaching is possible for people who have already made the
breakthrough from some other source, but it is not stated clearly enough in the writings themselves to make
finding and understanding it very easy.
Even though he founded a major religion, the enlightenment the Buddha achieved was still only a partial
breakthrough. Much of what he learned from the Invisible College was on a subconscious level; it is reflected
indirectly in his various teachings and practices as described by his followers after his death when they
wrote the early literature, but much of it never came out in so many words in his actual teachings.
He didn’t actually say that the Vedantic Gods are evil beings who eat souls, or that enlightened souls need to
reincarnate for their own good as well as that of living people. This vital information is implied, but never
directly stated. For example, the Buddha did teach that animal sacrifices and “austere practices” – by which
he meant self-torture, starvation, etc. – are not mandatory for one to achieve enlightenment; but he didn’t
antagonize the Vedantic majority around him, or their Gods, by saying that “The Gods are evil.”
However, it is easy to misunderstand what he was actually doing, which was to separate ethics from the
process of achieving enlightenment.
In other words, says Griffith, he said living ethically was important, but not directly related to the
psychic development that causes enlightenment. Again, this interpretation is possible from reading the
Buddhist literature, but the point is not made clearly enough for most people to understand it.
Certainly most modern Buddhists don’t.
Modern Buddhism, except for a few occult groups associated with it, is a Theocratic religion.
Buddhists feel that their ethical conduct as well as their psychic development practices will earn them
enlightenment by pleasing various incarnations of the Buddha, all of which are imagined to co-exist as Gods
similar to the Vedantic Gods.
This is not what Buddha taught at all.
it wasn’t possible to turn most of those people into high-level psychics or magicians or to teach them much about the true nature of Theocracy;
they just wanted to turn them into what would be defined in the United States today as “good average citizens”.
Two types of consciousness-raising programs were used within the lodges:
1 one trained initiates in the lower degrees to become rational atheists and political liberals;
2 the other, more advanced, program, taught high-level occult knowledge and conscious control over the psychic powers. The first of these programs always had many more members than the second. Initiates who learned to accept the Masonic philosophy often became immune to falling into a religious trance during the rituals. This is an example of the difference between the way the Invisible College reprograms people’s The Invisible College continually plants information in the subconscious that says, “Think for yourself. Don’t accept anything without evidence. Do what you feel is best under the circumstances rather then just accepting what someone tells you. You can become a better person if you only learn how to do so. Judge yourself realistically: you are neither a self-righteous saint nor a miserable sinner, but simply an ordinary human being with free will and control over your own destiny.” This is almost the opposite of the Theocrats’ programming that takes place during Fundamentalist Christian services. They want worshippers to say “Thy will be done,” and submit completely to the telepathic influences they receive, as well as to obey religious doctrine to the letter.

The Christian code took people deeper into bondage to the Theocrats; the Masonic code liberated them from that bondage without substituting any other master for “God.” What’s most important here is that the Masonic initiates were taught to receive increasing amounts of positive reinforcement from their material and social environment, and decreasing amounts from religious mind control. The idea that people can significantly improve the quality of life on Earth by their own efforts is one of the most important strategies that the Invisible College uses in fighting Theocracy. Its strongest point is that they don’t need to use subconscious emotional manipulation or intellectual persuasion to get people to accept it.
Just living and working within a modern technological society proves the basic validity of a humanistic philosophy by direct environmental conditioning. On the conscious level, people may think about the problems modern society has not yet solved and yearn for “the good old days”; but on a deeper level, they know they are as well off, on the average, as human beings on this planet have ever been.
Theocratic propaganda and religious mind control have great difficulty extinguishing this intuitive feeling, because environmental conditioning rooted in physical causes it
reality.

So the disembodied spirits in the Invisible College telepathically manipulated the subconscious minds of leaders in the Masonic and Rosicrucian lodges to design their rituals and doctrines in certain ways. Many of the individual elements of these rituals and doctrines were drawn from the writings and practices of previous occult groups, including some that were quite advanced in both spiritual knowledge and psychic
training techniques. These occultists included Cabbalists, Gnostics, Alchemists, Hermetics; influences from all these spiritual systems are still visible today in the Masonic and Rosicrucian doctrines.
There are spiritual knowledge and psychic-training techniques brought from China and India by the Islamic Sufi sect and taught to the medieval Knights Templar. There’s knowledge inherited from the ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, and Babylonians, taught to the Masons and Rosicrucians by Cabbalists, Gnostics, and Astrologers. Possessing advanced occult knowledge doesn’t automatically make a person morally virtuous. Even today, some of the advanced occult lodges derived from the Masonic-
Rosicrucian traditions are “Black Lodges” (lodges under the control of the Theocrats).

It’s extremely important to realize that Theocratic
enslavement and psychic vampirism are not things that happen only to disembodied spirits after death.
Living people can do virtually the same things to other living peopleThis can be done in a Christian context, as Jim Jones did with
the People’s Temple, or in the context of almost any other religious or occult group.
Many of the modern cults are also examples of this Theocracy-on-Earth:
1 the Moonies,
2 the Rajneesh Cult,
3 etc.
However, such groups aren’t always openly identified as religious or occult organizations. The Symbionese Liberation Army was such a group, and so was the Manson Family. So are many terrorist groups, especially those in the service of Islamic Fundamentalists.
A number of present-day rock groups are actually bands of living Theocrats, enslaving their fans and draining energy from them at concerts. This last type of living Theocrat is especially dangerous right now, because such people can influence a large number of people who listen to their music on records or over the radio, using electronic mind control techniques that we will describe later. One of the worst things about this movement is that some of these people have made the breakthrough.
They know what they are doing, and they still do it.
The illusion of achieving immortality for the ego is a very powerful corrupting influence. You can see why many occultists wouldn’t want to listen.
The quality and completeness of a person’s breakthrough knowledge are very important. Until very recently, communicating many of the individual details that constitute the breakthrough has been extremely difficult.
It is much harder to understand Theocracy without the background of many terms and concepts from recent scientific discoveries: computer science, behavioral psychology, modern physics, etc.
Government policy and general opinion in this society now treat alcoholism more as a medical and psychiatric problem than as a moral or criminal problem.
This is actually a significant step forward for the whole civilization: learning how to deal with a social problem to minimize the total harm it does to the society.
Yet while Western society deals with the alcohol problem in a reasonably sensible and sophisticated manner, it fails to apply the knowledge learned from the “noble experiment” to psychoactive drugs other than alcohol. The Invisible College let the Sixties Movement stop when they had reached the limit of what could be programmed through the use of psychedelics. It was extremely difficult just to program large numbers of LSD users with a set of vague idealistic principles that would make their opinion-forming and decision-making processes more tolerant and flexible. It was totally impossible to start teaching a detailed, sophisticated ideology.
The major reason for this is that the Invisible College was working almost entirely through people’s subconscious minds, so that they were absorbing short strings of data at random places in their “mental files.” As long as these messages were simple, clear, and positive, then they did more good than harm. It generally made people more socially and politically liberal. If they had tried using more complex material, it would have merely confused the recipients, probably to the point of interfering with ordinary mental functions.
If they hadn’t started the telepathic communications, several of these people would have accepted the information about Sirius and the Dogon as hard proof of physical visitations to Earth by Ancient Astronauts. As it was,the Invisible College managed to complicate the issue in their minds, and may have kept them from seriously misleading the significant number of people who
regard their opinions as authoritative.
Griffith: During the Sixties, Timothy Leary often said that
LSD helps people unlock cosmic secrets that are encoded in our DNA; and at the time, I found this concept completely incomprehensible. But he’s still saying the same thing today. For example, he said in NEUROLOGIC just a few years ago that, “Most of the characteristics formerly attributed to the soul now describe the functions of DNA, whose complex messages originate from higher intelligences in other solar systems. The mission of DNA is to evolve nervous systems able to escape from the doomed planet and contact manifestations of the same amino acid seeding that have evolved in other solar systems.”
What is the relationship between the concept in this quotation, the acid mutants, and the cosmology that you’ve already given? Invisible College: First of all, there was never a physical seeding of amino acids to start organic life. What actually happened was that disembodied spirits went to planets that were ready for life to develop, and created the amino acids by telekinetic manipulation of existing organic molecules. They assembled these amino acids into physical DNA using their own astral DNA molecules as templates.
When Leary and other scientists theorize that the physical DNA contains an evolutionary program that automatically causes new species to develop, they are slightly misinterpreting messages that we put in their subconscious minds.

What we’re really telling all these people is simply, “Try to develop conscious control over your psychic powers during your present lifetime, so you’ll have a better chance of surviving after death.” LSD and other psychedelic drugs are a dangerous but useful tool for doing this, and so are many psychic training practices derived from occultism and religion. We do want people to evolve; but the evolution is spiritual, not physical.
However, there’s a lot more to the War in Heaven than just a struggle between the Invisible College and the Theocratic spirits who operate through organized religion and try to retard material progress towards an advanced civilization on this planet.What’s actually been going on during the last twenty years [as of 1988] is that the Theocrats are preparing to achieve their final goal. Throughout recorded history, the Theocrats have falsely pretended to be Gods. Now, because of the Earth’s extremely high and unstable population, they actually have a chance to assume Godlike powers.
Hitchiking Spirits
Elements of this and following sections concerning the nature of spiritual beings, especially “the basic cosmology about the origin and destiny of the human soul,” could not have been given earlier. Also the Invisible College did not want to describe certain things they intend to do in the future before they were fully prepared to do them.
The technical preparations have now been completed, their psychic network is now in place and functioning, and it is safe to tell more.
Some advanced civilizations have a form of rapid interstellar travel that makes it possible for disembodied spirits to travel from one world to another at speeds much faster than the speed of light.
When they get to their destination, they incarnate there. However, such interstellar travel by spirits involves risks, and they sometimes get lost in transit and end up on a planet
other than the one they intended to visit. If the equipment needed to project spirits over interstellar distances does not exist there, they are marooned. If spirits find themselves
marooned on a planet devoid of life, they eventually die, unless other spiritual beings are able to rescue them. Accidents like this do not leave spirits marooned in empty
interstellar space because the method of travel requires there to be a large mass of physical matter at the far end. The problem arises when that mass isn’t the one intended.
In earlier communications that are not part of this book, the Invisible College has said This statement was true as far as it went, but it didn’t
mention that such civilizations were very different from theirs – as different as a colony of social insects such as bees or ants is from a herd of horses or a pack of wolves.
They had also mentioned (elsewhere) that the civilizations that sent out such original missions of creation seemed to be enemies of the civilizations ancestral to their own, and that their (the Invisible College’s) ancestors were partly responsible for driving them away. But they didn’t tell the full story. In the present section, they continue describing how spirits create organic life on planets that are ready for it and then guide the process of evolution until intelligent beings develop. But they point out that everything they say about the origin and evolution of life on Earth is just scientific speculation. They’re reasonably sure it’s accurate, but it’s not based on detailed historical records.

Griffith asks why the Invisible College doesn’t have access to the histories of all the advanced civilizations going back millions of years?
Surely all such societies would have sophisticated equipment for storing information, better than our present computers here on Earth, so information about all of them would be easy to obtain. Even if civilizations are always rising and falling, communication between them should ensure that history and other information gets passed along. After all, we Earth people, primitive as we are, still possess many important written records of our own vanished civilizations. But we don’t, his guides point out.
We Earth people have a few written records from the ancient Greeks, Hindus, Chinese, etc., but there are still huge gaps in our knowledge.
To answer the question: Advanced civilizations don’t use electronic computers, nor do they store much of their data in durable physical forms equivalent to books, photographic film, sound recordings, etc. The equipment they use to store and process information is made of living organic matter and is relatively fragile, so it’s not that hard for specific historical knowledge to be lost. Also, the symbolic systems for storing data are neither alphabetic nor digital, but are versions of the system used for memory storage in the human brain.
Such systems are extremely complex, and translation from one system to another is often very difficult. As long as a particular civilization is viable, it retains the information that the people in it want to retain. If it breaks up, the souls of the people who survive the breakup go to other civilizations, which have their own history, their own store of information they consider valuable. So specific information about a particular planet is often not available.
There is no need to visit planets in spaceships and “seed” them physically.
But this does not mean that organic life is always of the same type as on Earth… or that DNA “as we know it” is the basis for all life in the universe.
There are other kinds of organic life on the surfaces of other kinds of planets, and also non-organic forms who live in the interiors of stars, comets, gas clouds, and other bodies of matter. They all have different kinds of souls, composed of different kinds of astral matter, and there is almost no communication between the different kinds of life.

Even telepathic communication, while barely possible, is not
really feasible, because the different types of organic and astral life use very different kinds symbols for communication, and also think at different rates of speed.

Griffith asks about the possibility of building translating equipment, as we do to allow data exchange between different computers. The response is that the analogy doesn’t really apply. All of our computers were designed by and for human beings.
The common denominator between two different computers is the person who understands both. There is no such common denominator between people and vastly different forms of intelligent life. The human astral soul is both an alien parasite or symbiote, and a natural part of a human being. All mammals have astral souls, but the astral soul of a human being is extremely
different from the astral soul of an ape. Human beings were radically altered by psychokinetic genetic manipulation to become physically different from other apes. The brain, the hands, the sense organs, the general musculature, and the organs used in standing and walking erect are all very different in humans from those in apes. However, the scientists who recently started mapping the DNA structure of anthropoid apes found it much more similar to that of humans than they had expected.
And when genetic science begins to learn the details of how DNA structure is typically changed by random mutations, the scientists will discover that the genetic differences
between apes and humans don’t fit those patterns. They’ll realize that the particular loops in the DNA molecule that cause the genetic differences between people and apes have an
artificial or alien look to them. That’s because they actually are artificial, and spirits made the changes from other worlds who were familiar with genetic patterns different from those on Earth. The somatic soul of the human species was genetically altered
just as radically as the body was, and is also very different from the somatic soul of an ape. The human somatic soul’s nervous system is much more highly developed for transmitting and using astral energy, and the attachment point for the astral soul is much more highly developed. This attachment point allows any human astral soul to
incarnate, including those used to incarnating in bodies very different from human bodies on Earth. In other words, there is a sort of standardization among human-type bodies on many different worlds to allow them to be linked to a wide variety of astral souls. There are often problems of astral tissue compatibility if body and soul are too different, but it is still possible for many different types of astral souls from many different worlds to incarnate on Earth.
One of the chief characteristics of intelligent beings compared with similar non-intelligent beings is that both the body and the astral soul show strong evidence of neoteny. For example, many scientists on Earth have noticed that an adult
human being retains many physical characteristics found in an anthropoid ape during infancy or childhood, but lost in the ape as it matures. Many technologically advanced races of people use genetic engineering (modification of the genes before conception) and biological engineering (modification of the body during
embryological development by the use of hormones and other chemicals) to repress the development of the secondary sexual characteristics and to increase the neotenous characteristics. This is why so many dreams and visions of space people show them as rather androgynous.

There are three reasons why humans living under primitive conditions were genetically engineered to have less sheer muscular strength than ordinary apes.
1 The first is that if the process is properly done, they gain considerably in coordination and are are much better at doing delicate manipulations with their hands.
2 Second, having less muscular strength stimulates people’s intellectual development by encouraging them to use tools and develop technology.
3 The third reason is that neoteny significantly slows down the maturation and aging process, giving people more time to develop their minds than animals have.
Since humans are physically immature and dependent on others for so long while they are growing up, this also gives them an opportunity to learn many things from their elders that they might not learn if they became independent adults sooner. Advanced human civilizations inhibit the secondary sexual characteristics and certain kinds of muscular development even more, for exactly the same reasons.
They gain a longer lifespan, better general health, and physical equality between the genders; and they lose very little, because they don’t need great physical strength nearly as much as they need good balance, agility, and coordination. If such a body is kept in good general muscle tone, it has greater endurance against fatigue than a more heavily muscled body and is more resistant to many kinds of injuries. Also, most advanced human societies reproduce entirely by ectogenesis, so there is no need for people to be capable of ordinary mammalian reproduction. Most advanced societies have separated sexuality from reproduction.
Why create the human body by having it grow inside an adult as a parasite, when it can be grown much more efficiently in an artificial environment?
Notice the paradoxical attitude that so many Earth women have about bearing children: on one hand, they know the future of the human race may depend on it, but on the other, they also know it’s damaging to the body and seriously interferes with
other aspects of adult life. 86re13

Especially, pregnancy and child rearing are ready-made excuses for placing women in an inferior social status.
However, sexuality itself still exists in all advanced human societies for emotional, social, and psychic reasons. The androgynous people you see in your dreams are all sexually functional males or females. On the average, advanced humans tend to be more sexually active than primitive humans, because their physical and mental health are better, and because they don’t have to work as hard for basic survival. Many Earth people have an instinctive feeling that the soul is an “alien parasite” attached to the body. The somatic soul of a human being contains many structures not
found in the souls of other primates. Some of these produce a form of neoteny in the body; others could cause the brain to develop into a high-quality bio-computer; and still others allow astral souls of many different types to incarnate in human bodies.
This gives many people the feeling that there is something alien about the soul.

Gods
The Invisible College has stated that Gods don’t exist. That statement is completely true in the context in which they used it.
Throughout human history on Earth, some spirits have pretended to be Gods, using a definition of the term that allows them to rule over human beings without being accountable for their actions. These definitions assert that Gods are greatly superior to humans in wisdom and morality, encouraging people to let deities deny them their rights to consent of the governed. However, the human spirits making these claims are simply
lying. They are not superior to ordinary people except in possessing certain forms of knowledge and power; and in moral terms they are significantly inferior because their very existence depends on enslaving and exploiting living people and other disembodied spirits. Since pretending to be Gods is one of the chief sources of Theocratic power, the
Invisible College attacked it very strongly in an earlier section of this book. Elementals
Elementals and Gods are the same kind of entity structurally, though they differ enormously in personality and behavior. You might say that Gods are civilized elementals. So, for our descriptions of how the astral bodies and minds of these
beings function, we’ll use the general term “Elementals.”
On one level, Elementals are specialized types of Theocratic bands. They are very large composite spirits containing thousands of human astral souls very closely linked together. On another, they are sentient creatures in their own right, with personalities and emotions quite different from those of ordinary human beings.
One thing we want to stress: Elementals and humans are not two races of beings, but different forms of one race. The astral DNA template of both is identical, but humans are the individual form and Elementals are the composite form. Composite physical life forms exist on Earth. The bees, ants, termites, and other social insects are the most intelligent of these. The Elementals bear the same relationship to humans as an ordinary honey-bee colony does to a primitive, solitary bee or wasp.
The nature of group minds depends on the amount of control they have over their individual members. There are roughly four levels of control, though each “intergrades” with the next.
These can be verbalized as cooperation, persuasion, coercion, and compulsion.
1 Cooperation is working with others because your mutual interests coincide, and the joint effort is of mutual benefit without major concessions on the part of either party involved.
2 Persuasion is essentially barter: “I’ll do this for you if you’ll do that for me.”
3 Coercion is similar, but the barter is negative: “I’ll do harm to you unless you do some particular thing for me.”
4 Compulsion is direct control of someone else that transcends that other person’s volition.
Earthly societies operate mostly by cooperation and persuasion, with some coercion and only a small amount of compulsion. A bee colony operates entirely by compulsion, almost in the same way that your brain operates your body through the nervous system. Human societies resist becoming a true composite entity, for two reasons.

  1. First, people have highly developed brains and are fully intelligent as individuals.
  2. Second, each person has a separate astral soul with an astral will that resists outside control. It is possible to control the minds of living people by psychic compulsion under certain circumstances, but this is very difficult. People strongly resist such control because of their highly developed brains and souls. A bee colony is a composite entity because individual bees don’t have large enough brains to support true intelligence and because they don’t have individual astral souls.
    A colony of social insects has a single astral soul that is linked to the body of every individual in it.
    The individual uses telepathy to pass information to the astral mind of the hive. This group mind processes and stores the information received from individual bees and does the thinking for the entire hive, passing down its orders by telepathyOne example is the colony’s ability to direct the physical changes that individual bees go through during the course of their lives to perform different specialized functions: gathering food, cleaning and repairing the hive, rearing the young, defending the colony from enemies, swarming to produce a new colony, etc. A bee colony is actually better organized in terms of division of labor than a human society. Human societies are superficially similar to composite entities, but they aren’t true composites, because individual people have independent intelligence and will. However, the human astral soul has a strong potential for forming composite entities while it is in a disembodied state, because souls can literally link themselves together, as was described in the section on Theocratic bands. This is another important reason why Theocratic spirits don’t achieve true immortality. The longer a Theocratic band lasts, the more it develops into a composite entity with a mind of its own. At first, the controlling Theocrat completely dominates
    the group mind, but eventually that mind becomes powerful enough to become independent, and the band becomes an elemental. We’ve already described how an increasing population forms new souls. If there is an abundance of human astral souls at a low stage of development in the astral plane for the Theocrats to recruit or feed upon, Theocratic bands tend to grow larger and larger, making the creation of new Elementals more common.
    Right now, Earth has more Elemental spirits than it ever had before in its history. And this is a very dangerous situation. As long as the Earth’s population goes on increasing, the existing elementals and Theocratic bands have a steady supply of new souls to feed
    upon or recruit. But when massive human die-offs occur, vast numbers of new souls will be stranded on the astral plane at once. This overabundance of souls will cause thousands of embryonic Elemental spirits to start growing very rapidly towards adulthood. Once a young Elemental reaches a certain critical mass it becomes able to seize and capture souls psychokinetically against their will, something that ordinary Theocratic bands cannot do because they lack the necessary psychic energy. Almost every human culture has produced some version of the saying, “A man is a God in embryo,” and it’s true. However, the astral template also can program the soul to act as a sovereign individual, which is why there are free spirits as well as Theocrats. The extension of this influence to living people creates the desire for freedom and individuality on Earth as well. Elementals don’t have peers in the natural cycle of their evolution because they are the composite form of another race. We individual humans are their parents as well as their children, but we also have a destiny of our own which conflicts with theirs.
    This is why the space people interfere with this natural cycle of human evolution. They raise Elementals to be fully human and civilized by teaching them to accept a symbiotic relationship with individual humans. Remember, an Elemental is similar in structure to a Theocratic band, and it has a place in its astral body for individual humans to attach to it.
    In a primitive, animalistic Elemental, these attachment points remain empty when the creature reaches maturity. To produce a God, human astral souls attach themselves to these points as the Elemental is growing and try to control it. If it overcomes them and remains an animal, then it may have to be killed. If the spirits win and tame the Elemental, it becomes a God.

Another thing the Elohim do before they leave a planet is to create an elaborate and self-sustaining network of astral machines, which remains there for future use.

Much of what the Invisible College is doing on your planet right now makes use of such machines, which were left on Earth’s astral plane by the Elohim when one of the Gods seeded your planet in the remote past. It might have been hundreds of thousands of years ago, or millions of years.
The devices are constructed of organic astral matter. They are machines, but they are also alive as plants are alive. This is why they were able to survive for unimaginable periods of time. The equipment is capable of defending itself from Theocrats and all but the largest Elementals, and of sustaining itself indefinitely. It possesses an artificial intelligence like a computer, but does not have true volition or creativity. It repairs itself but it does not reproduce or evolve.
Are Elohim and space people different races, or the same?

Invisible College: We are both the same race and species in a genetic sense, because our astral souls are capable of incarnating in the same types of bodies. There is not a single race of space people or a single race of Elohim, though; there are actually several of each that we are in contact with. Your occult literature has for many centuries used the word “Elohim” to refer to the beings we’re talking about, just as it has called space people angels. In general, the difference between the space people and the Elohim is simply that those who live in space value physical technology and life in a physical body more than the Elohim do.
Space people normally incarnate immediately after death, though they can function quite well in the disembodied state if there is reason to do so. The space people possess a high level of psychic technology, much of it learned from their friends among the Elohim people, but rely on it less to meet their total needs than they rely on physical technology. It should be pointed out that these differences between cultures are matters of esthetics, not morality or level of evolution. Both groups are good in the moral sense and highly advanced in the evolutionary sense. Of course, the cultural differences between the two groups often create political friction arising out of conflicting goals and values, but this can be beneficial and stimulating to both sides if handled correctly on the social level. An individual can change from one group to the other, as a person on Earth might emigrate to another country and become naturalized. Whole societies have made this change in the past on the collective level, and adopted a new technology and culture.
Over the last six hundred years, both space people and Elohim
have been coming to Earth in ever-increasing numbers. Many of your greatest minds were directed by astral souls from advanced extraterrestrial civilizations. And your whole modern Western civilization is the creation of our political organization on Earth, the Invisible College. Griffith: This confirms all these rumors I’ve heard about Earth’s is used by other worlds as a hospital, or insane asylum. But doesn’t the presence here of people with Theocratic mentalities and advanced extraterrestrial knowledge make survival and spiritual development more difficult for the native Earth people? How do you justify this ethically?
/Invisible College: Most of the memories are removed from the exiles’ minds before they are sent here, so they don’t have the same type of knowledge that our regular agents have. The majority of them have a vague feeling of being alien to earthly society, but very few possess conscious memories of life on other worlds, and they have no technical nowledge at all. However, they do possess high intelligence and control over their psychic powers: these are essential functions of the astral mind that we don’t have the right to tamper with.
Griffith: Science-fiction writers often assume that advanced societies handle their crime problems by reprogramming people’s minds to rehabilitate them.
Why don’t you do this to your criminals instead of sending them here?
Invisible College: We do employ such methods, but only on the less serious cases. Every advanced society that’s tried to eliminate all crime and insanity from the population has ended up destroying itself. It’s impossible to program destructive tendencies out of the mind without also eliminating good qualities like creativity. So exile is the lesser evil. And having a few extraterrestrial Theocrats here doesn’t affect the average Earth person at all: They’re really no different from your own native Theocrats, and there’s no shortage of those. The presence of such people on Earth really has no overall effect on events here, especially since about half of the exiles eventually rehabilitate themselves and fight on our side.
Griffith: My personal psychic experiences and my past-life memories tell me that the exiled criminals and the agents sent here to direct the War in Heaven are only a small minority among the extraterrestrial spirits now incarnating on Earth. What kind of people are the rest? There are two main groups: refugees from physical, wars and disasters, and young souls seeking development in the challenge of this hostile environment. Both come here to be in at the beginning of a new civilization. Unless the control of Theocratic spirits over your technology can be broken fairly soon, the Earth’s biosphere will be seriously damaged before the Last Days. It’s going to be a near thing.
Griffith: Are you referring to things like the destruction of
the ozone layer by organic halogen compounds, the greenhouse effect, etc.?
These are only two out of a long list of symptoms, and not even the worst ones. For example, some of your medical researchers are becoming aware that insecticides and other poisonous chemicals cause mutations in bacteria and viruses that create new diseases, but they have not yet realized just how great a potential danger this is. Over fifty million years ago, the dinosaurs became extinct because of diseases caused by chemical pollutants released by the impact of large numbers of comets with the Earth during a visit of the Sun’s astronomical companion, the “Nemesis Star.”
Griffith: What happens if the Earth becomes uninhabitable
after the majority of the population dies off during the last Days and the new Gods depart? It may be possible to start an advanced civilization of reasonable size on space colonies, as has happened on many other worlds. This is the most probable outcome, the way things look right now. However, if there is largescale nuclear or biological warfare, the last Days may come so soon and be so short that this won’t be possible. That’s the worst-case scenario, and if it happens, we will simply have to evacuate as many souls as
possible to other worlds, using the same psychic equipment that we use to control the Elementals.

Griffith: Well, that sounds better than the prospect of
universal death that everyone on Earth would face if the extraterrestrial spirits weren’t here.

Invisible College: It is, but it still isn’t a good situation.
Only astral souls above a certain state of development can be teleported out of here.
Weaker souls would not survive the journey. Now, all of the agents and immigrants and even the rehabilitated exiles are strong enough to survive the journey out as they survived the journey in, but many Earth people aren’t. This means that many
ordinary Earth people will die under these conditions… but
they will survive if this planet continues to support physical human life, or if it’s possible to build space colonies in time.
The use of the term black magic for psychic workings performed with the aid of psychic technology has a similar grounding in operational reality. The energies radiated by astral-
matter machines appear to be black in color when perceived with the psychic senses, whereas the energies radiated by human astral souls – including those of Theocrats – appear to be white or bright-colored. This has a physical cause related to the frequency of the radiant astral energies themselves: the former appear absorptive and the latter reflective.
A high percentage of the imaginative novels, movies, and television programs produced in the last twenty years contain hidden messages about the war between the Theocrats and the Invisible College. And popular music today is an even more effective tool for mind control than it was in the Sixties.
As soon as we started this subliminal warfare, the fifth-stage Theocrats began using it too, and both sides have been fighting desperately for control in this area all during the last twenty years.
[Griffith very quickly noticed the magnitude of this warfare
when he started doing research for a book on the role of popular music in the War in Heaven. Many of today’s rock songs tell the same story, over and over again. It’s like reading passages from the diary of someone gradually going mad in an old horror novel. Every new rock group starts out with a few normal protest or love songs. Then a group mind controlled by fifth-stage Theocrats, and from that point on, all their songs sound as if the same person wrote them swallows them.
However, this Theocratic subversion is often not complete, and periodically one of the groups still writes a song about the fight to liberate the human race from mind control.]

A number of musicians who are also highly skilled magicians
From our point of view, the entire mythology is completely false. It is based on a number of false assumptions about spiritual reality that you have already thoroughly debunked in this book. The key fallacy that underlies everything else concerns the so-called “higher self.” It exists, of course, but it’s no more Godlike than the lower self. The higher self is nothing more than the astral soul with its astral mind and psychic powers. Becoming a
magician is nothing more than putting the physical mind in conscious contact with
the astral mind and using the psychic powers in the astral soul.
The medieval alchemists and cabbalists developed excellent practical techniques for doing this, but their theoretical explanations of how it worked were completely wrong. Griffith: How does the information you just gave relate to my experiences with
modern rock music? For example, I sometimes seem to hear messages with my name in them. Is this how people get entrapped into Theocratic electronic mind-control networks? And what exactly are the messages – actual subliminals in the music itself, or telepathic messages that use the music as a focusing device for my own psychic powers?

Invisible College: This form of electronic mind control is extremely powerful, and much more is expressed in electronic signals than an analysis of the surface message indicates. Modern rock music is not just a melody and a lyric with a few specific subliminals added in such a way that they can be easily extracted.
If it were, then computer scientists on Earth could put songs in digital form, separate out the subliminals that had particular effects on people’s minds, and actually write a sort of computer language out of them that could be used for simple kinds of mind control. For this reason, both the Invisible College and the Theocrats deliberately keep the subliminals far too complex to be analyzed and cracked with present Earth computer technology.

Don’t assume that the voices you hear on records speaking your name, or various other word patterns that you think are personal and unique to you, are proof that some living person or some disembodied spirit has the same verbal knowledge that you yourself possess. This simply isn’t true.
The mental programs that human beings use to deal with language involve a lot of what
you could call “computer enhancement of images” and also “high-level computer languages.”
The actual subliminal sounds mixed into recorded music and broadcast on radio and television are more like a computer machine language than either an ordinary spoken Earth language or a high level computer language that resembles such a spoken language. They are not words or even phonemes in English, but patterns of sound that produce certain reactions within the speech-interpretation programs in the listener’s mind.

For example, when you think you hear your name being called, the signal is probably not your name as an Earth person at all, nor your name where you came from, but a descriptive term in machine language that refers to a specific type of person. It’s comparable to sending a narrow-band radio signal on a certain frequency; if anyone has a set tuned to exactly that frequency, he’ll hear a signal. Some of the Theocrats and many spirits in the Invisible College know what kind of people are here doing various jobs. If they want to communicate with such people, they send a group of machine-language symbols that a mind of one exact type will receive, and no other. If you are that type, you will hear your name being called, or will otherwise be aware that someone has a message for you. What you don’t seem to be aware of is that
only you or someone exactly like you can hear the signal if it is specific enough. Some of
these call codes are more specific than others. Some can be heard by nearly all conscious extraterrestrial agents; others by all extraterrestrials, period;
and some by everyone with a certain degree of psychic development. Many of these subliminal messages have the same effect on the human mind, which on one level is computer software, as programming commands sent into an computer. In other words, receipt of a group of machine-language symbols by your mind causes a particular program to start running, if you are in the correct state of consciousness and if your mind
possesses the program in the first place. This is why the voices you hear in the music seem to be trying to recruit you to their side or to scare you off from interfering with
their activities. Do not jump to the conclusion that the senders have conscious knowledge of who you are or what you are doing on the level of Earth-plane activity.
They know that many different people are doing research into electronic mind control, and that among them are undoubtedly some conscious extraterrestrial agents with the correct mental programs to understand messages of the type you are now receiving from us. They also know how to send messages directly to you through music subliminals,
because they know some of the mental programming you have to have to do your job. They are “on your wavelength” or “they know your language.” So, no matter who
they are or which side they are on, they try to get you to join them or to keep you from interfering with them.

Another thing you have to realize is that these messages that you can now receive because you have the right programs loaded into your mind are not new. Many different groups of spirits and living magicians have been sending such messages for years. That hasn’t changed; it is you who have changed. You can now hear and see the messages, whereas a few months or years ago you couldn’t. What you are receiving is quite real, but it isn’t quite what you think it is either. You think that the messages are much more specific than they are. You think that they are aimed at you as a unique individual. [Griffith asks about “Raudive voices,” named for a psychic researcher (Konstantin Raudive) who postulated that disembodied spirits could impress their voices onto magnetic recording tape. He has received a large number of messages of this type
during his music research. Does spirits that psychokinetically manipulate the molecules in the tape put them there, or is there another explanation?]

The messages are not on the tapes, but in your mind. Spirits perceive the pattern of
background noise going onto the tape and key it to a telepathic message they’re sending into your subconscious. You can consciously retrieve the message when you listen to the tape. The proof is that sometimes more than one person will hear the same message on a particular tape, sometimes not. Also, if you listen to such a tape frequently, you can learn to retrieve the message without it. Both we and the Theocrats use this method of communication frequently, on music tapes as well as tapes containing only noise.Griffith: The scope and effectiveness of the electronic mind-control techniques you have just described give the fifth-stage Theocrats much more power to control people than the religious Theocrats have ever had. However, Western civilization still seems to be evolving towards the goals set by the Invisible College long ago: an increase in individual
sovereignty in all aspects of human life, a decrease of bigotry and closed-mindedness,
and a higher level of general knowledge and sophistication in both technological and social areas.

I assume that this is why you remain optimistic about the future, but nevertheless, many of the people who commented on Spiritual Revolution [a preliminary edition of War in Heaven] expressed serious doubts about the future of the human race on Earth. They believe that nuclear war, biological warfare, or destruction of the Earth’s biosphere through pollution will prevent an advanced civilization from developing on this planet, no matter what the Invisible College is able to do.
I present here a very brief summary of the state of the Technology War at that time, category by category. Kyle Griffith will provide a current look at this area in the WiH Forum.
1 The Birth Control Pill. The pill, not birth control in general, is important because
the way in which it interferes with the menstrual cycle can enhance women’s ability to gain control of their psychic powers – something the Theocrats always try to suppress.

The effect is related to changes that take place in the somatic soul during early
pregnancy as it prepares itself to bond with a reincarnating astral soul. Birth-control
pills simulate early pregnancy. The AIDS virus was created by Theocrats by using psychokinetic genetic manipulation to alter a relatively harmless African venereal disease virus.

The need to find a vaccine for AIDS through genetic engineering was one of the chief
reasons why such research was sanctioned and financed on a large scale. And genetic research is far more dangerous than atomic research in its potential to produce a wider variety of weapons of mass destruction, more easily and cheaply. The risk of accidental release of such weapons is much higher than the risk of accidental nuclear war.

Right-wing reactionaries in 1988 were conspiring to pressure governments to treat
AIDS with benign neglect and to withhold vaccine from public distribution for as long
as possible after it was discovered. This would allow AIDS to spread very deeply into
the Third World, so that the means of preventing or curing it could eventually be used
as a weapon to further First World interests.

This power-brokerage scenario could be used with other biological agents as well. Griffith: I’ve always felt the same way about the predictions of historical events between the time of Nostradamus and the present. What has impressed me are his visual images of modern technology. Some of his verses contain what seem to be accurate descriptions of
airplanes, submarines, missiles, conventional and nuclear bombing, chemical and
biological warfare, etc.

Invisible College: Nostradamus had visions of all these things that were quite accurate, but this had nothing to do with prophesy. Physical technology develops along similar lines on many different worlds, and the images he described were taken from the historical records of some advanced civilization. Griffith: It looks to me as if the advanced extraterrestrial civilizations that is
manipulating the evolution of earthly society are divided into two factions with
conflicting goals.
1 the Elohim are here to assist in the birth of new Gods,
and
2 the space people are here to create a new civilization similar their own.
Invisible College: This is completely correct, and it is a difficult political situation. The Elohim have a strong claim here because of the astral technology that their ancestors left on this planet long ago;
but they also want to maintain a good relationship with us, so they will allow us to found an advanced civilization of individual humans on Earth if possible.

There is no emotional animosity between the two factions, and a complex set of rules to determine how the situation is handled. And in one sense, the Earth people themselves will determine the fate of their own world.
Invisible College: If a major nuclear war occurs before Earth has established
viable space colonies, no advanced individual civilization will develop here.
And even if such colonies are established, the fate of hundreds of millions of
individual souls depends on the course of history from now until the Last
Days. If the Earth is still capable of sustaining human life after the Last Days,
many more people can be saved than if the new civilization is forced to live in
space.
Griffith: Isn’t there a better way to communicate the information than putting it into a book like this?

Invisible College: Of course, but it is a good first step. Having the information in coherent verbal form in an earthly language makes it easier to communicate it telepathically to large numbers of people. And the more people who read the book and write or talk about the ideas in it, the better.
WAR IN HEAVEN is just one tiny part of our efforts to spread this information.

Werking
The Theocrats are violating natural laws when they refuse to reincarnate. The souls of all living beings are constructed to incarnate and draw energy from the physical body. This is the only natural and efficient way in which the soul can get the vital energy it needs to
function and regenerate itself. Although the mechanics of this process are quite complicated, we will explain them in some detail to allow you to understand the rest of the theory.
The soul is actually an astral body, made up of a special form of matter.
This matter is composed of subatomic particles like ordinary matter, but with different properties. Let us call this special form of matter astral matter, and the ordinary form physical matter.
The subatomic particles that compose astral matter have different properties from the particles that compose physical matter.
Physicists on Earth have named and described some of these properties, such as mass, spin, and electrical charge. You also have terms like “charm” in your vocabulary for properties the scientific community apparently understands much less clearly.

The principal difference between astral matter and physical matter is that all astral subatomic particles possess much less mass than equivalent particles of physical matter. The charges and the mass ratios of the particles of astral atoms are about the same as those of physical atoms. In other words, the particles that compose the nucleus
of an atom of astral matter have a positive or neutral electrical charge and their mass is greater than that of the negatively charged particles that revolve around the nucleus. However, the astral subatomic particles equivalent to physical protons and neutrons are much less massive than physical electrons.

Since physicists often describe physical electrons as having “negligible mass” compared with physical protons and neutrons, this means that the total mass of astral atoms is extremely small.
Q. How can astral matter exist in the presence of physical matter? Why don’t the tiny astral atoms simply get sucked in by the gravitational attraction of the physical atoms and end up orbiting them the way electrons do?
A. Astral subatomic particles have a different characteristic that determines gravitational attraction. They are attracted by gravity to each other but not to particles of physical matter. In fact, the astral atoms and molecules that make up the soul occupy the same space as the physical matter that makes up the body. Both kinds of matter are mostly empty space between particles anyway, and since there is no gravitational attraction between the two kinds of matter, the molecules simply slip by one another. This also explains people’s inability to see astral matter or detect it with physical laboratory
instruments.

Energy also exists in two different forms, physical energy and astral energy. The photons that make up the two types again have different characteristics. Under most ircumstances, astral photons do not react with physical subatomic particles. Nor do physical photons
react with astral particles. However, the exception is important.

You’re saying that light and other electromagnetic energy do not affect astral matter. Does this mean that psychic energy is not in the electromagnetic spectrum at all, but in a different one?
Yes. Advanced civilizations possess a unified field theory that describes the relationship between the two, but we can’t describe it to you right now. What’s important in this discussion is that psychic or astral energy normally works only on astral matter. It does
not produce physical or chemical changes in physical matter. The reverse is also true.How does psychokinesis work then, or does it exist at all?

A. It exists, but it’s nothing like what you now think. In fact, your whole concept of the nature of psychic powers is a jumble of oversimplifications and errors. Psychokinesis does not move or change physical matter directly, but can do so by working through the
links between physical and astral matter. These links are the “Secret of Life.”
The difference between living and non-living matter is that living matter is linked to astral matter but non-living matter is not. Complex organic molecules of physical matter can form a chemical bond with similarly constructed molecules of astral matter, and the resulting structure shows the characteristics of life: irritability and the ability to eproduce.
This process is very complicated, and your knowledge of physics is not adequate to understand all it completely. Here’s an attempt to explain why astral matter can react chemically with physical matter only within living molecules and not within simpler molecules. It has to do with the vibrational frequencies of photons produced when electrons of both physical and astral matter change energy levels within complex
organic molecules. These frequencies are the same allowing physical photons to convert to astral and vice-versa.

This happens only in certain kinds of molecules, not in all. These energy conversions allow a sort of chemical bonding to occur if the two molecules are similar enough.
Q. Does this mean that astral matter – in other words, the soul – plays a part in cell division?

A. Yes, in the whole genetic process: it affects the reduplication of DNA. It also affects many different aspects of cell metabolism. And the breaking of the molecular bonds between physical molecules and astral molecules causes the phenomenon commonly called “death”.

Q. How does this tie in with the idea that the body supplies the energy to nourish the soul?

A. Some of the electromagnetic energy generated chemically by the cell’s metabolic processes is converted into astral energy by the links between the physical and astral molecules. This energy flows into the astral matter that composes the soul, powering its various functions and providing the raw material for regeneration of its astral matter. In other words, some electro-magnetic energy is converted into astral energy, passed into the soul, and converted into astral matter there to perform cellular growth and repairs.
The astral plane is actually higher on an ecological energy chain than the Earth plane, which means it receives less total usable energy.
Plants convert solar energy into chemical energy. When animals eat the plants, they absorb this energy and use most of it in growth, repair of tissues, moving around, and other activities. However, some of it is also converted into astral energy and passed into the soul.
Since each of these energy conversion processes is less than completely efficient, each link in the energy chain has access to less total energy than the one below it.

The impression of the human soul I get from this is that it’s exactly the same size and shape as the body, linked to it cell-by-cell and molecule-by-molecule. This is very different from my previous concept, which was that it is attached to the body at only one point through the traditional “silver cord.” Please explain.

A. Human beings actually have two souls, not one. So do all other animals; but plants have only one. The soul we’ve been talking about so far is a primitive structure, an astral body that is merely an analog of the physical body. It is alive in the sense that it is made up of molecules of living astral matter, but it is not sentient. It has a nervous system but
not a mind. The true soul, the one you were just talking about, is a separate structure of astral matter.

Using the term “somatic soul” for the primitive soul linked cell-by-cell to the body and “astral soul” for the other will make it easier to discuss this subject. The astral soul is a body of astral matter linked to the somatic soul’s nervous system by what you call the silver cord. This is structured like a segment of plant root with feeder roots at both ends.
The feeders at one end tap into the somatic soul’s nervous system;
those at the other end tap into the astral soul’s nervous system. Energy flows into the astral soul from the somatic soul and indirectly from the body through this cord. Energy flowing through the silver cord is the astral soul’s only truly efficient source of
nourishment.
This makes sense. I take it, then, that the silver cord breaks when the body dies, leaving the astral soul free. Correct. Remember, though, that the astral soul loses its best source of energy when it separates from the body. By contrast, when the body dies, the somatic soul does not also separate and live on independently. It simply decomposes when the body decomposes. Remember, it’s very closely linked to the body with chemical
bonds.
Q. I conclude from this that a new somatic soul is created during the embryological development of every new human being.
Correct. In fact, a cell of living physical matter can’t divide unless the astral cell linked to it also divides. Living cells and molecules can exist only in pairs, one physical, and one astral. This is why many complex organic molecules undergo chemical reactions differently in living cells from the way they do in a test tube.
Q. I assume, then, that reincarnation occurs when an existing astral soul attaches itself to the developing somatic soul of a fetus. You’ve also given a reason why the astral soul needs to reincarnate:
to link itself to a source of vital energy and nourishment. Where in the process of embryological development does this occur?
There are two very different reincarnation processes. The commonest occurs even before conception. Sexual activity often attracts a nearby spirit and causes a temporary attachment to a woman’s somatic soul at the genital chakra. (The same attachment can happen to a man, but it generally lasts only a few minutes, because the attachment
point in a male’s somatic soul is vestigial, whereas the female’s is fully functional.)

The attachment can last up to about twenty-four hours; and if conception occurs during this time, some of the hormonal secretions that accompany the process cause the woman’s

nervous system to send energy to her somatic soul that keeps the attachment intact
through the entire pregnancy. Late in pregnancy, when the somatic soul of the fetus becomes sufficiently developed, another hormonal change causes the mother’s genital chakra to reject the link to the attached soul, which then remains attached only to the fetus.
Q. I think this information might also explain why students of sex magic in both the East and the West have written so much about the relationship between the female menstrual cycle and various psychic and spiritual phenomena. Most of them have noticed that
kundalini energies vary significantly in both quantity and nature at various points
during the cycle, and that there is also a connection to mediumship and even possession.

A. Yes, this information can help magicians work out better theoretical explanations for the mechanisms of such phenomena. At present, the theories they use to explain their observed data are among the most complex and mystical hypotheses you’ll find in occult books.
This same concept should also be useful to people trying to explain some of the phenomena described by Whitley Strieber in Communion: women experiencing phantom pregnancies after “UFO abduction” experiences, etc.
To get back to our discussion of the mechanisms of reincarnation, the primitive, involuntary form of reincarnation occurs in many of the more intelligent types of “lower animals,” and it happens spontaneously to any human soul at a relatively low state of psychic development who happens to come close to a couple having intercourse. Although it allows the soul to survive death, it has serious disadvantages for both
mother and child.
All during her pregnancy the mother suffers serious psychic energy imbalances, which can cause her both mental and physical illness.
These are usually more uncomfortable than they are dangerous, but the damage suffered by the attached astral soul is often much more serious. Signals intended for the mother’s astral soul are also transmitted into the attached soul, and they usually scramble the
contents of its astral mind quite badly. For this reason, few people who reincarnate by this method show the typical characteristics of the twice born: past-life memories,
precocious intellectual or psychic development, etc.
Q. What happens if an existing astral soul doesn’t link to the mother’s somatic soul? Does this cause an early miscarriage? Recent medical evidence shows that about half of all pregnancies terminate spontaneously within a week or two after conception; since an
early miscarriage of this type closely resembles normal menstruation, the woman isn’t aware she was ever pregnant.A. This has nothing to do with reincarnation, but has purely physical causes. Every human being has to have an astral soul. If an existing astral soul is not already attached to the mother, the fetus starts generating an astral soul of its own late in pregnancy. At this point, two things can happen. Either a late reincarnation can occur, or the baby is born with a completely new soul, spontaneously created during its embryonic development.

The people the Hindus call “twice born” are those in which an astral soul at a reasonably high state of development has incarnated shortly before or after birth, a process that keeps the infant from developing its own new soul. On the average, people with twice-born souls have a head start over those with new souls or souls received through early
reincarnation. The astral soul of a twice-born person transfers memories into the physical mind during infancy and childhood that “teach it how to learn.” This is equivalent to raising the person’s effective intelligence and creativity.
Energy to nourish the soul flows from the body through the somatic soul to the astral soul, but there are smaller energy flows both ways that convey information.
The astral souls of the twice born give them a head start by feeding valuable information into the physical mind.
Why do the Theocrats refuse to reincarnate?
Remember Satan in Milton’s “Paradise Lost” saying, “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven”? The Theocrats are spirits with great knowledge and psychic power. They are a sort of ruling class on the astral plane, and they don’t want to give up their power and
privilege by reincarnating. Highly advanced souls who aren’t Theocrats reincarnate
and take the chance that their soul can properly educate their new mind, and that their next reincarnation will be a pleasant and valuable one.
But it still involves taking a chance: the body might have hidden flaws that they don’t detect before incarnating, or the child’s earthly environment can take an unforeseen turn for the worse.
Also, the late reincarnation process itself is as traumatic as the physical ordeals of giving birth or being born. This trauma erases many of the memories stored in the astral soul and damages the programming that governs the astral soul’s functioning.
The Theocrats are too selfish and egotistical to take these chances, even though the alternative is extremely immoral.

Another reason why Theocrats don’t want to reincarnate is that human beings have two minds as well as two souls. One mind is in the physical body’s brain, the other is in the astral soul, and both have separate consciousness. Normally, the astral mind is conscious
while the body sleeps and unconscious while the physical mind is awake.
The two are conscious simultaneously only during certain states of altered consciousness. This “time-sharing” is humiliating for the astral mind’s ego, which considers itself superior to that of the physical mind.
Theocrats want total consciousness for their astral ego, in addition to power over other spirits.
This brings us to one of the most important things we have to tell you in this whole series of communications.
The nourishment that disembodied spirits receive from living people as radiant psychic energy is not enough to sustain them by itself. This is why all non-Theocratic spirits reincarnate within ten to fifty years after physical death: if they don’t, the astral soul starts to degenerate because of a sort of malnutrition. The astral matter that makes up its tissues can’t regenerate itself properly and reverse the effects of entropy. So the choice is reincarnation or illness, insanity, and death.
The Theocrats have found an alternative to this, but it is an evil one:
cannibalism. They use their telepathic powers to hypnotize spirits less highly developed than they are; then they attach the silver cord to them just as if the other astral soul were the somatic soul of an infant.
They can draw out enough energy this way to sustain themselves on the astral plane indefinitely, but the process destroys the other spirit.
Q. This is very frightening. Can they do this to just any other spirit, and can they do it to an astral soul incarnated in a body?
Fortunately, no to both. If they could, neither you nor we would be here talking about it. The Theocrats would have eaten up all of us just to get rid of us. They claim to be gods, but their powers are actually quite limited. Some of them are both more knowledgeable and psychically more powerful than most of the rest of us, living and disembodied, but
they are far from omnipotent.
They can’t damage an embodied soul or override its conscious will, and they usually can’t capture and devour disembodied souls who resist them, except for the weak and untrained ones that mediums call “lost souls.” And even the majority of lost souls are capable of
random psychokinetic bursts that allow them to flee the Theocrats when threatened.

The Theocrats obtain victims by posing as gods and persuading religious believers to enter their bands by promising them “eternal bliss in Heaven.”
Theocratic Bands
Please tell me more about the Theocrats and how they operate. For example, who were they when they lived on Earth?

A. Many notorious tyrants, conquerors, evil religious leaders, black magicians, and criminals have become Theocrats after death, but so have some people whom history calls saints or benign geniuses.
Power corrupts, and the prospect of achieving immortality corrupts even more.
Many people with highly developed souls whose earthly lives were lived quite ethically chose to become Theocrats after death.
This has been especially true of people who were religiously devout, then found out the horrible truth about their gods after death. If they were too powerful for the Theocrats to enslave and devour, some became members of the Invisible College and fought Theocracy; but others became Theocrats themselves. The temptation is very strong,
because the Theocrats as a class have ruled both the Earth and its astral plane throughout most of human history. For example, most of the medieval Popes and other religious leaders notorious for being cynical and power-hungry are now Theocrats. So are many famous occult leaders, from Cagliostro down to Aliester Crowley.
Q. I’ve learned a lot from Crowley’s writings and from members of occult
organizations he founded or influenced, but I’ve always also felt a deep emotional revulsion for him.
A. While he was alive, Crowley was very similar to a double agent in espionage. Sometimes he helped us in our battles against the Theocrats, but at other times he worked for them. Of course, we were always aware that no matter which side he said he was on, his only real loyalties were to himself. This kind of egotism is a typical Theocratic
personality-type, and proves that Crowley had been a Theocratic spirit between lives many times before.
Right now, he’s working with various Theocrats of an occultist persuasion, trying to turn some of the occult groups he founded into cults based on his worship. He talked frequently about doing this during his life, and now he’s in a position to put it into practice.
Q. This makes the War in Heaven sound more like the Allies against the Nazis than the forces of good against the forces of evil.
A. It’s all just politics. Both sides are working in their own interests. The important thing is that the self-interest of the Invisible College and of living people is the same. We acknowledge that we are part of the same human race as you. become literally superhuman.
Q. Are you implying, then, that the time-honored goal of so many occultists – that of becoming or merging with a god-like being – is evil?
That trying to do this turns people into Theocratic spirits who literally eat souls?

A. This question doesn’t have a yes-or-no answer, and before we can answer it all, we’ll have to give you a lot more background information.
The question isn’t really a matter of morality so much as one of dealing realistically with natural law. For example, it is a serious violation of natural law for a disembodied astral soul to take on large amounts of energy by draining it from another spirit, because there is no template for determining how the energy is assimilated, as there is when the
astral soul is attached to a body. In the latter case, the somatic soul acts as such a template. When the somatic soul transmits energy through the silver cord to nourish the astral soul, the pulses of energy are arranged in patterns that keep the growth of astral
tissues in proper balance.
By contrast, when Theocrats absorb energy from other spirits, there is no such template, so the growth-pattern is random and may put the functioning of the astral soul out of balance. Because imbalances in the astral nervous system can cause irrational thinking and behavior, most of the Theocrats are insane. And the bigger and older they are, very
often the crazier they are. Many Theocrats do irrational and self-destructive things, and
most of them eventually become so insane that other Theocrats destroy them.
Q. This means the Theocrats aren’t really immortal?
A. Most of them aren’t. They have the potential to be, but only by properly controlling the energies they assimilate, and few of them have the knowledge to do this. There are some very large, old, and stable Theocrats on the astral plane who do seem to have this
knowledge, but they don’t cause much trouble. They feed themselves by stealing spirits
from other Theocrats and don’t work directly with living people, so we don’t worry about them much.
It’s the younger Theocrats that cause the most trouble, both for the Invisible College and for living people.
Q. Why do the Theocrats maintain bands of spirit followers, and what are these bands like?
A. The Theocrats enslave other spirits to provide psychic energy, as slaves or employees on Earth provide physical labor. Individual Theocratic bands can contain from a couple of dozen spirits to several thousand, with the average in the low hundreds. The paintings
and poems that describe a Heaven containing millions of souls are inaccurate.
The daily activities of a Fundamentalist Theocratic band organized as Heaven are similar to a church service as such sects hold them on Earth, except that they go on perpetually. The Theocrat in charge poses as the Lord God Jehovah, and subordinate Theocrats pose as Christ, various Angels and Apostles, and so forth. God quotes the same Biblical passages and preaches the same sermons as preachers in the same sect do on Earth, and the congregation joins in singing the same hymns.
Dead Fundamentalists in Heaven find out they even still have to confess their sins and receive divine forgiveness, because they are still capable of thinking “rebellious and impure thoughts.” Of course, since they are in constant, direct telepathic contact with their God, the process is simple and automatic. Christians in Heaven are kept in a perpetual state of religious ecstasy, which activates their psychic powers under
the control of their God.
The Theocratic leaders of the band then channel this collective psychic energy to perform whatever functions they consider necessary. Most of the activities have to do with the survival of the band, and especially of the Theocratic dictator posing as God. The band
recruits new members from among the recently deceased, steals souls from other bands, fights to keep spirits like us from liberating members of the band, and so on.
Q. I still don’t have a clear picture of how the Theocratic bands on the astral plane relate to living people.
A. Each Theocratic band has to have a working relationship with a group of living eople, often a religious congregation. Occult and political groups are also used; and now more and more Theocratic bands are controlling groups of people whose common interest is popular music, sports, or something else centered around the electronic media.
Traditionally, the majority of Theocrats hung around places of worship, but now you can find them almost any place that crowds gather.
Q. Please clarify this. You talk about spirits being on the astral plane as if it’s a place, but you also say, “hang around places of worship.” Just where is the astral plane? Is it on Earth, in another dimension, or what? A. The astral plane is a condition, not a place. A spirit, meaning an astral soul, on the astral plane is in the condition of not being bound to
physical matter through the silver cord. The Earth plane is the surface of the planet Earth as you perceive it with your physical senses. The astral plane is that same place as we perceive it with our psychic senses.
We and the Theocrats and all spirits live on the same world you do.
Spirits are present around you all the time, and if you enter the correct state of consciousness to put your psychic senses under conscious control, you can perceive them directly.

But point-of-death experiences are accidents, and there isn’t much that the Theocrats can do to prevent them.

Q. When people see the spirits of dead relatives waiting to greet then during point-of-death experiences, are these fakes like the Theocrats pretending to be Jesus, or are the other spirits really their relatives?

A. Quite often, they really are. Theocratic bands often contain many members of one family. There are several reasons for this.
Frequently, whole families belong to the same church congregation and are recruited, after death, into the Theocratic band that controls it. Even if not, ties of family affection are also used to recruit spirits after death.
One of the most important activities of every Theocratic band is obtaining new members to replace the souls the band devours.
Maintaining a relationship with an organized group of living people also allows the Theocrats to maintain a social and political system here on Earth working in their interest. Theocratic bands maintain their relationships with the living by using religious mind control, which should be described in a separate chapter.
Let us end this chapter by pointing out that every single one of the ideas at the core of traditional deistic doctrine is a lie.
“Only God (under various specific names in different sects) is good: people are basically evil and are incapable of improving themselves morally by their own efforts.” This is a lie.
“Only God is naturally immortal, but people can gain immortality by doing proper service for the Deity.” This is a lie.
“Human beings can receive forgiveness for their sins, and divine strength to prop up their various weaknesses, by ‘Letting God into their hearts’ i.e., by creating a powerful psychic bond between themselves and the deity.” This is also a lie.

Q. From what I’ve learned so far, the biggest lie of all is that the “gods” worshiped by organized religions are “archetypes of virtue.” We humans are bad enough, but the Theocrats are obviously many times worse than the worst of us. And it’s not Satan who’s the real “Father of Lies.” It’s God.
The key to the whole religious mind-control technique is putting people into a state of consciousness best called the “religious trance.” It is essentially a mild hypnotic trance in which the conscious will is awake but passive, as opposed to deep trances, in which it is
completely inactive. People in a religious trance are completely aware of what is going on around them, and are recording these events in their memories exactly as they would in a normal waking state.

They are also capable of thinking and acting voluntarily, but can only do so within certain very definite limits without breaking out of the religious trance and assuming normal consciousness.
Q. It’s fairly common to describe someone who’s concentrating intently on reading, listening to music, or watching television, as “hypnotized.” You’re saying that this is literally true?
A. Yes, but remember, it’s a rather light trance. If the material being presented begins to contradict the person’s existing opinions or knowledge, identification breaks down. He or she assumes full normal consciousness and thinks, “I don’t agree with this,” or “I
don’t understand this,” or “This is wrong.” However, identification with sensory input can make people accept things they would reject if they were fully conscious, as long as the input isn’t controversial or unfamiliar enough to break their concentration.Once the conscious will becomes passive, the flow of character, assuming a level closer to that during sleep than that during normal wakefulness. In a person fully trained to enter
the religious trance, electrical activity in the physical nervous system becomes stable at exactly the right level to allow an equal flow of energy into and out of the astral soul. This allows the astral will to awaken partially, and creates a direct, two-way link between
the physical mind and the astral mind.
As long as the religious trance lasts, information can pass reasonably freely between the physical mind and the astral mind and vice versa.
Also, the physical mind can receive impressions from the psychic senses of the astral soul more or less directly.

Q. How does this compare to the trance state I’m in to receive this communication? Is it the same?

A. No. You are in a “psychic trance,” which is not the same as a “religious trance.” It’s a much less passive state of consciousness, and involves much larger flows of energy into and out of the astral soul. Both the physical will and the astral will act in concert control the psychic trance. The religious trance is controlled by outside sensory
input into both the physical and astral minds. The psychic trance is an active state of consciousness that leaves you free to ask questions and make comments using your full creative powers. The religious trance is a passive state used to control and brainwash people.

The purpose of a psychic trance is for an individual to take conscious control of his/her psychic powers and use them to receive messages by telepathy or perform some other psychic working. What happens during the religious trance is not quite the same. Once people are completely in the religious trance, they are able to receive telepathic
messages from everyone around them and from any disembodied spirits present;
but the process is not nearly as conscious as what you’re doing right now in a psychic trance.The actual religious mind-control process, the technique that provides telepathic emotional reinforcement to help program people’s minds, is a sort of “psychic chain-reaction” that occurs while a group of people are in the religious trance together. In other words, the telepathic messages sent out by every member of the congregation influence the emotions and thinking of every other member, like a box of matches catching fire
or an atomic chain reaction.

This process creates a “religious group mind”: the telepathic transmissions of the entire congregation mutually reinforce one another until everyone present is thinking and feeling the same thing very, very strongly. People in such a state can feel extremely strong emotions, as strong as those that accompany the most powerful physical
sensations such as sexual orgasm or extreme pain. Within certain limitations, this is an extremely powerful method for controlling people’s motivations and future behavior. One of its worst features is that the people being controlled enjoy it more than anything else in life. You might call it the ultimate “high.” And it’s more addictive than any chemical drug.Q. The religious mind-control process resembles some of the direct electronic mind control described in anti-utopian fiction. George 0rwell exaggerated when he thought the state described in his novel 1984 would arise out of modern Democracy and Socialism, but he missed something much more important. His totalitarian state with its
mind-control has always existed. It’s as close as your local Fundamentalist church.

A. That’s one of the most important things we’re trying to tell you. People have always been “property” and “cattle” just as Charles Fort speculated, but it’s not on the physical level. What has been enslaved is the mind during life and the soul after death.
This is what Lovecraft was really hinting at in his Cthulhu mythos, isn’t it? And it also explains Shaver’s Deros and hundreds of other references in fiction and serious speculation. Very few of the people who wrote these references knew much about
Theocracy as we’re describing it here. All that really happened is that we were able to transmit a few words or some visual images to them telepathically.
Sometimes these were received in conscious “flashes” of vision or inspiration; but more often they sank directly into the subconscious, and were later called up and considered original creations of the imagination.
Q. One example that comes to mind is the material about the Devil eating souls in The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. He must have picked up a glimpse of the truth about Theocracy, but he was so deeply brainwashed that it didn’t liberate him. His conscious
intellect just twisted the information around to support his Christian belief system.The last thing the Theocrats want is for religious believers to stop sinning. That is why they made sexual pleasure a sin, and why Christianity and most other organized religions teach the obvious fallacy that women are inferior to men.
Q. In other words, when the Theocrats made up religious doctrine, they included deliberate lies in it so that people would never be able to be completely virtuous.
A. No. It’s worse than that. Fallible human beings can never be completely virtuous in the sense of being able to obey the absolute letter of any rigid ethical code. However, falling short of perfection in obeying most ethical codes provides reinforcement for modifying
behavior in positive ways: the more people are punished for disobedience or rewarded for obedience, the closer their average behavior gets to the code.

The “better” they behave, the more positive reinforcement and less negative reinforcement they get. Even though they never reach perfection, they tend to feel the code is constructive because progress is rewarded and retrogression is punished.
Q. This is easy enough to understand, but how does it apply to a moral code that says sex is sinful?
A. That’s the point we’re trying to make. This kind of logic doesn’t apply to such a code. Sexual desire originates on the biochemical level and cannot be extinguished by manipulating the programming of the mind. People can be conditioned to hate and fear In this context, we are defining “mind” as “The information stored in the brain, plus the software for retrieving and processing that information.”
Do you now understand the full magnitude of the problem that a completely false item of religious doctrine causes people? It’s an inherently frustrating situation. The subjugation of women makes life much less pleasant for both genders. It turns women into
slaves, forever unable to live full lives. And it does just as much harm to men when it
turns them into oppressors and exploiters.

This creates a no-win situation, because Fundamentalists still receive negative reinforcement even if they obey their moral code perfectly. For example, trying to live up to Christian ideals of chastity is always going to create guilt feelings and internal conflict, because believing that sexual feelings are wrong does not extinguish them, even though it
might repress or sublimate them.

And living within a sexist family structure always creates interpersonal conflicts.
Q. I see now why you say this process is similar to drug addiction. The
Fundamentalist moral code contains elements that can’t help making people feel frustrated or guilty, which creates an artificial need for “divine forgiveness of sins.”
A. There’s a significant difference between a humanistic ethical code and the moral codes of Theocratic religion. The former are designed to meet people’s needs, the latter to meet the Theocrats’ needs.
Even though most humanistic ethical codes are too idealistic to follow rigidly, “human nature” itself regulates reinforcement in response to them in ways that prevent excessive guilt and frustration.
In other words, committing murder or assault is severely punished, cursing and screaming at people less so, but the social environment of most societies does not punish people for merely feeling anger but not expressing it in word or deed. However, the negative emotions themselves are a form of negative reinforcement. Notice that this process is self-limiting: serious offenses receive severe punishment, whereas minor ones receive light punishment. This is not true of violations of religious morality based on absolutes.

You and your readers should also be constantly aware that the Theocrats do not confine their activities to religion and occultism, but corrupt and control human beings through all activities that produce certain states of altered consciousness. For example, when people use the electronic media for passive
recreational purposes – listening to popular music over the radio or on
recordings, watching televised sports events and game shows, and
playing the simpler computer games – they often enter a trance
state that renders them vulnerable to telepathic mind-control by
Theocratic spirits.

We must first give more background information about the nature of
spiritual beings and psychic powers in general.Chapter 13:
Soul, Mind, and Consciousness
Q. Even though you’ve explained how the Theocrats indoctrinate people who attend religious services by conditioning them with a mixture of sensory and telepathic reinforcement, I still find it hard to understand this in terms of what I know about psychology. For example, how can the whole human race be so brainwashed that they don’t even speculate consciously about certain aspects of spiritual reality? The idea that evil spirits might pose as gods and exploit people through organized religion is an obvious one, yet almost no one ever talks or writes about it. The whole subject is literally “unthinkable.”
Also, if religious mind control puts people into conflict with their own human nature, as happens when they are taught that sexual feelings are morally wrong, why doesn’t this negative reinforcement cancel out the positive reinforcement of religious ecstasy? And even more important, most Americans right now aren’t Fundamentalists.
The majority don’t even go to churches regularly at all; and many of those who do, go to liberal churches that don’t practice religious mind control as you describe it.

Since this is so, why aren’t all the facts about Theocracy and religious mind control common knowledge?
A. The answer to all these questions is the same: the Theocrats simply know a lot more about psychology than people do. An electronic computer analogy applies here. People on Earth right now are like the users of a computer system: they can in-put and retrieve data, and they can run the existing programs to process the data in set ways.
Many of them have enough programming skills to modify some of the programs slightly, but they don’t understand the basic design of the software very well. On the other hand, the Theocrats not only understand the software far more completely, but also have
much easier access to the special “command mode” used to modify it. This command mode is the telepathic chain-reaction used in religious mind control.

Of course trained human psychics also have access to it, and so do spirits in the Invisible College; but it is still extremely difficult to free people from Theocratic control. The mind of the average person on Earth right now is run by software designed by the Theocrats to keep people from consciously finding out they exist.

And there’s no use just telling people the truth: they simply can’t understand or believe it, because the mental programs they use for understanding and believing things were designed by the Theocrats.
Q. Almost all religious and occult literature, and the majority of modern
speculative writing that comes close to discussing Theocracy, assume that “gods,” “demons,” etc., have the power to kill humans who discover “forbidden knowledge,” or at the very least, to over-ride the conscious will and keep humans from remembering such things or pursuing such lines of enquiry further. What are the facts on this?
Especially, are the Theocrats aware of telepathic conversations like this one, and
what can they do about it?
A. Obviously, the Theocrats don’t have the psychic power to kill people or analyze their conscious minds, or you wouldn’t have survived to write this. They operate through the subconscious, and they keep people from finding out about them by making it difficult to
understand certain kinds of spiritual information or draw rational conclusions from it.

An explanation of how they do this is quite complex. Like the answers to your first set of questions, it depends on a more complete knowledge of the nature of the mind and the soul than you now have, and this is going to be difficult to explain. Keep in mind, throughout what follows, that much of the terminology from psychology and computer
science is going to be misused. We have to use the words in your vocabulary that
are closest to the meanings we need to convey, but they aren’t always too close.The first thing we need to clarify is the comparison between the human brain and a computer, and between the mind and the software and data in a computer. The only similarity between the human brain and present electronic computers on Earth is that both store and process data. The methods for doing so are quite different. This is where most
of the books about biocomputers and psychocybernetics go wrong. They take the
analogy between the brain and the computer, and between the mind and computer software, much too literally.
The best example is that the electronic computer deals in absolute or “hard” values, whereas the brain deals in comparative or “soft” values. If you create a new file in a computer and enter data into it, the information stays there exactly as entered, and you can retrieve it in its complete original form just by entering the correct access code. If you want to delete something, you can “kill” it instantly and completely by using the correct commands. Everything you know about the human memory and learning process makes it obvious the human mind doesn’t work this way.
Memory storage and retrieval in the human mind is a cumulative rather than an absolute process. If a person’s senses receive a particular set of data only once, fewer of the individual details are recorded in memory than if it is received repeatedly. Also, information may be automatically forgotten if not periodically retrieved, a phenomenon that behaviorists call extinction. These two processes are almost impossible to
analyze using a computer analogy.
The electronic computer is an artificial construction, designed to do exactly what the human operator tells it to do. It’s also basically binary: a circuit is either open or closed, giving a series of “yes” and “no” answers. Computer software is designed exactly the same way, to match the hardware. The internal data-processing functions of the
computer can be very complex, but this complexity is always built up out of these simple binary building blocks.
Neither the brain nor the mind works this way.
Q. Doesn’t the biological principle of “irritability” put a binary base under the behavior of living organisms? For example, some microorganisms show positive or negative phototropism: they approach a source of light, or they move away from it.
A. This analogy doesn’t hold up very well, because even microorganisms often show much more complex behavior than this. Biological behavior is based not on simple “yes” and “no,” but on increasing or decreasing orders of probability that an organism will
respond in a given way to a given stimulus. The probability that an organism will show a given response is determined by the quantity and quality of reinforcement it receives for
performing that response. The behavior of the computer is based on “either A or B.” The behavior of the biological organism is based on “degrees of A or B” with the quantitative values of the probabilities being determined by environmental reinforcement of many different kinds

subconscious
The computer model of the mind is still useful, though, because it’s the only way even to begin to discuss the subject in the English language right now, poorly as the available terminology fits the realities. For example, it is much easier to understand the concept of the “subconscious” if you think of the mind as the total data and programs stored in an electronic computer, with many different kinds of files, each kind having different access codes.

In other words, what people call “normal consciousness” is like a computer menu, which gives access to certain files and allows them to perform certain operations. Various “altered” states of consciousness give access to entirely different menus. Since the Theocrats have some degree of direct access to the “control mode” for modifying
these programs in both the physical and astral mind, they have redesigned many of them to serve their selfish purposes for exploiting human beings both on Earth and after death.
mind control is practiced in many different places besides religious services. The Theocrats often practice it on the crowds:
1 attending sporting events
2 in gambling casinos
3 at political rallies
4 during musical concerts of many types
5 in a number of other places.
Whenever many people enter an intense emotional state at the same time and have their collective attention focused on a common objective, Theocratic spirits can use subconscious telepathic manipulation to put them into a religious trance and reprogram their minds with religious mind control.The important thing is to get as many of the facts as possible out into the open and let people decide for themselves. And it’s finally beginning to happen. References to the truth about Theocracy are beginning to appear in the writings of hundreds of different authors. But the information is still mostly just isolated fragments, and it’s also obvious
that most of the people who write them down don’t really know what they are, or even that they’re very important.
Even though most of the individual facts that make up the model of spiritual reality being presented in this book are already available to the public, very few people are capable of assembling them into a coherent theory, as you are doing here. This is because the mental
programs they use to draw conclusions from information on spiritual subjects were
deliberately designed by the Theocrats to be illogical and irrational. (designed enviroment)
Q. I’ve wondered about this for a long time, because empirical thinking appears to be the natural way for the mind to operate if you assume that the functioning of the thought-process is determined by positive and negative reinforcement.
A. Correct. As a general rule, assuming that the truth is true will bring positive reinforcement; assuming that it is false, or that something other than the truth is true, will bring negative reinforcement.
There are exceptions to this rule, but it does operate with reasonable consistency, enough to program people with roughly empirical methods of thinking.
This is what most people mean by “common sense”: drawing conclusions from the available observed information, and being willing to modify those conclusions if they are contradicted by further information when put into practice.

Of course, this can get extremely complicated, especially when one is dealing with other people. Since the individual usually has rather incomplete information on a given subject, everyone makes a lot of mistakes. Also, people all tend to be conservative in making
decisions:
it’s easier to keep on doing something the way you’ve done it before than it is to change just because the circumstances indicate it might be a good idea.
Both of these exceptions are important, but you should realize they are also self-limiting. The more information you receive that contradicts your present conclusion, the more likely you are to change it.
Also, your basic conservatism or inertia about changing opinions tends to give way when circumstances put enough pressure on you. When you start receiving significant negative reinforcement for behaving in a given way, it gradually becomes obvious that you should find an alternative.
This is the way the mind operates in decision-making most of the time, especially in dealing with the physical world. But this kind of natural empirical reasoning is used much less often than one might expect in dealing with other people, and hardly at all in dealing with psychic and spiritual matters. The Theocrats are responsible for this.

The key to Theocratic power is the nature of what the behaviorists call reinforcement. As materialists, they think of it as something concrete;
but it also has a subjective component, and the Theocrats are able to make use of this fact to manipulate the kind of reinforcement that people receive in response to their behavior.
Q. By “a subjective component in reinforcement,” do you mean that a concept like “pain” or “pleasure” is subjective in the sense of being subject to interpretation by the person receiving the sensory impulses?
A. No. That part of it is objective: the neural impulses we call pain are not the same as the ones we call pleasure; they have different electrical characteristics and travel over different circuits within the nervous system.
Yes, that’s verified by what I know of scientific conclusions on the subject. Where, then, is the “subjective component”?
A. The best name for it in English is “the emotional reaction to sensory stimulus.” As sensory stimuli are received by the mind of a person in a normal state of consciousness, they cause the retrieval of ideas and emotions from memory. This component is subjective because it comes out of memory storage rather than from the outside
environment, and in many cases it has more effect on decision-making than the
sensory input alone.
Let’s try a specific example. Suppose a racially prejudiced white man takes a job where many of his co-workers are blacks. Initially, he tends to interpret everything they say and do in ways that reinforce his existing prejudice: if they are confident and assertive, they
are acting “above their station in life.” If they’re friendly, they’re being presumptuous and impertinent. If they sense his prejudice and keep their distance from him or act hostile, this is proof that people of different races are not meant to work together. And so on. His experience should be teaching him that, on the average, black people are no different from white people; but his own subjective reactions to sensory intake tend to prevent him from learning.
The behaviorist literature describes these kinds of reactions, of course, because they are very common, but the psychologists don’t even speculate that a deliberate conspiracy is responsible for those elements of human behavior that are irrational or self-destructive.
Instead, they take a Darwinian approach.
For example, in the case cited above, they’d say that the prejudiced man learned his prejudice in an environment where he had little personal contact with black people: he received positive reinforcement from the prejudiced whites around him for showing negative emotional reactions when blacks were mentioned, so he became prejudiced. When he enters an environment where he comes in contact with black people, these prejudices continue to function until they are extinguished.
This is a process very similar to random mutation and natural selection.
This process does account for a lot of human behavior. However, mental programming from Theocratic spirits has to be added into this equation. The Theocrats don’t want people to learn from experience or adjust to new situations in their environment, so they
encourage emotionalism over rationality. When people make decisions rationally, they are harder for the Theocrats to control.
Religious mind control is a delicate process, because the religious trance is a rather shallow one. If people in a religious trance perform rituals that are unfamiliar, or hear preaching that seriously contradicts their existing beliefs, they return to a normal state of
consciousness.
Effective religious mind control can be practiced during rituals only when those rituals remain relatively stable.
This is also one of the principal reasons why Theocratic religion is socially and politically conservative or reactionary.
Q. I still don’t see how the Theocrats can program the minds of the entire human race so thoroughly that the truth about Theocracy has never become common knowledge.
A. A few people throughout history have, in fact, learned various elements of the truth about Theocracy and written them down in religious and occult literature. However, these elements were always fragmentary; and more important, neither the people who found
them nor the rest of the human race were capable of fully understanding them.
Especially, no one was able to design experiments to discover further elements of this knowledge and work towards a unified theory to explain the whole thing.Q. Why should the entire human race find it so hard to make the same breakthrough that I’m making, which enables me to discover and accept this kind of information? I understand, at least partially, how religious mind control works on believers, but why should the minds of everyone else be similarly affected?
A. This comes back to the basic behaviorist theory that human personality is conditioned into people by their physical environment – this includes the mental programs that they use to evaluate data and decide what is true and what is false. Even if you leave direct telepathic programming during religious mind control out of the picture, people still
receive their programming from both their physical and social environments.
Reptilian brain dominating our live an dthe mamale brain which has to develop at the backstage.
Programming from the physical environment usually favors empirical thinking, but that from the social environment favors acceptance of doctrine on faith.
A large part of the customs and beliefs and instinctive emotional reactions that make up this social environment were created by Theocratic religion. The further back you go into human history, the greater the percentage of people who were devout believers in Theocratic religion and were subjected to religious mind control to a significant degree throughout their lives.
Q. This definitely appears to be true when we look at Western history over the last thousand years, but I can see gaps further back.
For example, it doesn’t seem as if either the Romans or the Greeks were very devout during important periods of their civilizations.
A. On the contrary-the vast majority of the population in both civilizations were devout believers in Pagan religions that practiced effective religious mind control. However, there were periodic weakenings of religious belief among certain segments of the
population, which allowed important occult, philosophical, political, and scientific works to be written, works based on some degree of empirical thinking. Remember, the Greek and Roman philosophers were just a tiny elitist group of intellectuals. The majority viewpoint then was not that of Socrates, but that of the people who condemned him to
death.

The hold of Theocratic religion on most of Earth’s living population did not begin to weaken until the Modern Era, from about the 1300’s down to the present. And even today, the greater part of the population is still subject to religious mind control.
Modern civilization does program people with personality structures that resist religious mind control, but the Theocrats have been able to counter our efforts along these lines by resorting to electronic mind control.
Q. My research into secret societies and the forces manipulating human civilization has given me the impression that the Invisible College also makes use of both religious and electronic mind control.

Chapter 14:
Electronic Mind Control
A. Electronic mind control works on two different levels, just as religious mind control does.
We described in some detail in Chapter Twelve how religious services put people into an altered state of consciousness similar to a light hypnotic trance, and how the thinking and behavior of people in such a religious trance can be influenced by what they experience
through the physical senses during the service. In other words, they often learn to believe and act on the preacher’s words as people, learn to react to post-hypnotic suggestions during regular hypnosis.
Electronic mind control does exactly the same thing, and often to an even greater degree. It is also even more addictive than religious mind control. Like religious mind control, electronic mind control works on two different levels, one physical and one psychic

We will next discuss the physical level, which can be directly observed with the physical senses and analyzed with the conscious intellect.
There are many, many books in existence that describe this process, including detailed instructions for spotting subliminals by analyzing movies or TV shows in extreme slow-motion, along with explanations by psychologists for determining what specific effects the subliminal messages will have on the viewer. Similar information has also been
published describing how sensory mind-control is performed through popular music, radio talk shows, and other auditory media, though this subject has not been treated as extensively as mind-control through the visual media.

Electronic or media mind-control has a psychic component just as religious mind control does, but this employs completely different mechanisms, and your readers should be careful not to get confused reading the two sets of technical details in one book. They
don’t contradict one another, but they might seem to if not completely understood.
Everything we said in Chapter Twelve about religious mind-control is based on the postulate that psychic phenomena are broadcast-propagation phenomena like light or radio waves, and that they obey the inverse-square law.
In other words, the strength of a telepathic signal varies inversely with the square of the distance between transmitter and receiver, so psychic workings function most efficiently when the people or spirits involved are spatially close to one another. This is one reason why we continually stress the fact that the astral plane is a condition, not a place, and that
spirits are present in the same space that living people occupy.
However, there is a second, non-broadcast system for transmitting and receiving psychic energies between human souls, which we haven’t mentioned yet. Do you remember the old Greek Myth about the “Threads of Destiny” woven by the goddesses called the Fates?
These threads actually exist, but they aren’t woven by superhuman beings.
They are “transmission lines” of astral matter that connect one soul to another, and they allow telepathic communications over greater distances and with greater power than can be accomplished by ordinary “broadcast” telepathy.
These threads are created spontaneously when astral souls come into contact with one another while generating large amounts of psychic energy. Whenever the astral mind is in the correct state of consciousness, generating these threads is just as natural and
automatic as the process that spiders use to leave a silk strand behind them when they travel.
Some of the more ambitious TV evangelists have also directly linked large numbers of ordinary members of Theocratic congregations – and hundreds of thousands of new converts as well – into their electronic mind control networks by periodically holding huge, live revival meetings.
(They are often held in major sports stadiums, which, as we will see in a moment, are especially appropriate.)
This is also why several of the major evangelists have started colleges, and why one TV ministry even built its own imitation of Disneyland.
Q. Sometimes the little details are more biting than the big, mind-boggling horror stories. Think of it: a theme park where families can get enslaved to both electronic and religious mind-control while they take their vacation!
People don’t have to be watching a sermon or listening to a hymn to receive subconscious telepathic messages from the very same spirits who control fundamentalist religion; they only have to be in the correct state of altered consciousness (which TV and radio produces automatically in all members of the audience who haven’t learned specific techniques for preventing it), and they have to have the transmission lines of astral matter implanted in the right part of their soul, linking them into the network.Q. In other words, the football widow’s husband absorbs just as much Theocratic media mind-control from his weekend glued to the tube as does the Fundamentalist who watches the same amount of religious programming?

A. Yes. Live sports events and casino gambling serve the same function in this network as church services and revival meetings do in the electronic religious mind control networks. Compulsive gambling, especially on sports events through an enormous (and mostly illegal) electronic bookmaking network, plays the same part as does the cycle
of sin/guilt/forgiveness in Theocratic religion.
I knew that both sports fanaticism and gambling were addictive and could sometimes seriously harm a susceptible person, but I also knew that virtually anything could cause a harmful addiction if a person has the right pattern of character defects. However, I also felt very strong background “vibes” in the counterculture that said, “Stay away from
spectator sports and big-time gambling.”

Consciousness
The answer to the first is technical and almost impossible to describe in English, but we’ll try. Since you, and probably a significant number of your readers, are familiar with electronic computers, we will use computer terminology for our explanation.

First, you have to realize that a normal state of consciousness is comparable to a computer program that’s already running in an input or output mode instead of a command mode. In an input mode, you can enter data into the files of the computer to be stored or processed. In an output mode, you can retrieve information that’s already been
processed, and print it out or make some other use of it. On most modern computers, you can switch between these two modes very easily, and this analogy seems to apply to the mind as well.
The input mode of normal consciousness consists of receiving information through the senses and entering it into the memory, where it is processed in various ways and is available for later retrieval. The output mode consists of making use of data that the mind has already processed to feel emotions, think, speak, listen, move the body, and perform a wide variety of other activities. The whole thing is much more complex and sophisticated than anything conceivable for electronic computers, even in theory, but the analogy should be clear.

However, you can’t modify the program that’s running on an electronic computer set to an input or output mode. In order to do that, you’d have to enter some kind of command mode.
Q. As an example, before I typed this paragraph, I entered the command mode of this word processing program and changed the margins for this one paragraph. But now I’m back in the input mode to write this.

A. When this analogy is applied to states of consciousness in the human mind, you have to realize that the situation is very complex. On one level, you feel that you have a great deal of free will, a large measure of control over what you think and do and even over
how you react emotionally. This is simply because you are aware of a large number of different alternative courses of action open to you at any given time.
You are much less aware of those alternatives that are not open to you. For example, large areas of your total memory are not available to conscious access at any particular time. Like many electronic computers, the human mind arranges memories in banks, and you normally have access to only a few of these at any one time.
You can change banks by an act of conscious will, but this often loses you access to information you could recall easily before, from the other memory bank. In addition, there’s the subconscious, which contains memories that are very rarely available for conscious access.

Q. It also appears to me that normal consciousness includes at least limited command functions: for example, deliberately “putting yourself in a mood” to do a particular thing that you couldn’t do without advance concentration and preparation. This may be analogous to certain capabilities on this word processing program: for example, I
don’t have to leave the input mode to PRINT IN ALL CAPS or to underline.
A. Yes, but you can’t change the line-length except by going into a command mode, as you did above. Now the point we’re trying to make here is that LSD and related psychedelic drugs create a state of consciousness that is similar to putting a computer into a command mode and making changes in the program that is being run.

Q. This brings us back to my original objections to your advocacy of indiscriminate use of powerful psychedelics during the Sixties. Going into a command mode on a computer is useless, and usually detrimental to finishing the job at hand, unless you know exactly what you’re doing. For example, the command mode I entered to change the margins could also have been used to delete the whole file I’m working on, and that could have been done by pushing only two keys.
A. Fortunately, the very complexity of the human mind makes it much less vulnerable than that. What actually happened when the average person in the Sixties Psychedelics Movement took LSD wasn’t the same as the limited work with entering a “command mode” and doing deliberate mental reprogramming that Western occultists have
traditionally done when they used psychedelics.
It operated on a level unknown to the occultists.
In other words, you yourself, and all the people you considered serious occultists, underwent the same involuntary mental changes as the “street hippies” did because of taking LSD. You accomplished your limited psychic training goals, while they did nothing but “sit and groove”; but the drug itself was doing something much more
fundamental to every one of you, every time you took it.
Q. I’d already guessed most of this, but it’s still a little disturbing to see it put into words. Exactly what changes are you talking about, and how do they relate to the analogy about command modes?
A. Well, the computer you are using to write this book has several different levels of command modes, doesn’t it?Q. Yes. For example, the lowest level is the one I used to change the margins. Beyond that is another level at which I could enter another application entirely, such as creating and sorting data in an address file. Beyond that, I could write a program in Basic or Assembly Language and create a word-processing file similar to this one, but with whatever modifications we desired. And beyond that, I could write or install a
Machine Language program that would change the computer’s capabilities for writing new programs, including teaching it an entirely different computer language.

A. OK. By this analogy, the traditional use of psychedelics by occultists is on the level of writing a Basic program. That’s how people learn to use telepathy and other psychic powers: they actually write a new program, but to do so, they use capabilities already
present in their mind all along, as your computer has the Basic programming language
among its files.

Q. This explains why psychedelics are not essential to psychic training. They can speed up the process under the right circumstances, but they don’t seem to be able to give a specific psychic talent to just anybody.
There are large numbers of otherwise intelligent and creative people who simply can’t learn to become telepaths or mediums, for example, with or without taking drugs.
On the other hand, a lot of experienced occult teachers who dislike drugs assert that they can accomplish exactly the same degree of psychic training for a given person without using drugs as could be accomplished with them; it would just take longer. I tend to
agree with them in general, though I still fall into the “pro” rather than the “anti”
camp of occultists when it comes to psychedelic drugs as a psychic training aid.
A. The real reason we advocated widespread use of LSD in the Sixties had nothing to do with the short-term effects of the drug, or with conscious use of those effects for psychic training. To get back to the computer-language analogy we’ve been using, the “mind-
expansion through LSD” that we were advocating involved a Machine Language program, not merely a Basic program.
Repeated use of LSD over several years makes fundamental changes in people’s mental programming, and we used LSD plus direct telepathic conditioning techniques to significantly reprogram the minds of several million Americans. We also used environmental conditioning through the general emotional climate of the Sixties counterculture itself, as expressed in its art, music, slogans, etc.
Q. To tell the truth, I found all that stuff about “Peace and Love and Flower Children and Dropping Out and Everything Should Be Free” to be naive and impractical at best, and at worst to be self-destructive.
A. You felt this way because you already had high ideals and were concerned mostly with trying to put them into practice. We created the emotional atmosphere you find naive and self-destructive simply to teach a certain amount of idealism to young people who had been raised in average Fifties American homes that almost completely lacked
it. Throughout their childhoods, they had been taught to value various shallow forms of material success more than anything else. We were trying to push them in the right direction, and advocating widespread use of the powerful psychedelics was our principal means of doing so.

Q. How did the reprogramming that you carried out through the Sixties counterculture and psychedelics movement compare in effectiveness with that accomplished through religious mind control by Theocratic religious groups?

A. There is a tremendous difference, roughly that between doing something using a high level of technology and doing it by human muscle power, with the psychedelic drug being analogous to the machinery. We did more reprogramming in a few years on more
people than the traditional religious Theocrats do in the same number of decades. Unfortunately, the Fifth-stage Theocrats now have access to mental reprogramming techniques just as effective as those we used in the Sixties; but this is a subject we’ll discuss later.

Jung

C.G. Jung, the great doctor of the soul and one of the most inspired psychologists of
the twentieth century, had incredible insight into what is currently playing out, both
individually and collectively, in our modern-day world.
He writes,
“If, for a moment, we look at mankind as one individual, we see that it is like a man carried away by unconscious powers.” We are a species carried away – “possessed” by – and acting out, the unconscious.
Jung elaborates,
“Possession, though old-fashioned, has by no means become obsolete; only the name has changed. Formerly they spoke of ‘evil spirits,’ now we call them ‘neurosis’ or ‘unconscious
complexes.'” To condescendingly think that we, as modern-day, rational people, are too
sophisticated to believe in something as primitive as demons is to have fallen under the
spell of the very evil spirits we are imagining are nonexistent.
What the ancients call demons are a psychic phenomena that compel us to act out
behaviors contrary to our best intentions.
To quote Jung,
“…the psychic conditions which breed demons are as actively at work as ever. The demons have not really disappeared but have merely taken on another form: they have become unconscious psychic forces.”
“Possession,” according to Jung is “a primordial psychic phenomenon” that, “denotes a peculiar state of mind characterized by the fact that certain psychic contents, the so-called complexes, take over the control of the total personality in place of the ego, at least
temporarily, to such a degree that the free will of the ego is suspended.” Though the possessed might imagine they have free will, their freedom is an illusion.
They are unwittingly being used as an instrument for some “other” energy or force to
incarnate and express itself through them. Having complexes is not necessarily
pathological, as everyone has them.
What is pathological, however, is thinking we don’t have complexes, which is the
precondition that makes us most vulnerable to possession.
Jung clarifies,
“Everyone knows nowadays that people ‘have complexes.’ What is not so well known, though far more important theoretically, is that complexes can have us.”
The more complexes we have, the more we are possessed. We don’t need to get rid of our complexes, rather, we need to become consciously aware of them. What is important is what we do with our complexes. Complexes are the psychic agencies, which flavor and determine our psychological view of the world.
To quote Jung,
“The via regia [royal road] to the unconscious, however, is not the dream… but the complex, which is the author of dreams and of symptoms.” Thematically organized (such as the power-complex, savior-complex, mother-complex, inferiority complex, etc.), the complexes are the vehicles that flesh out the rich repository of contents of the underlying archetypes, giving the formless archetypes a specifically human face.
Complexes are the living elemental units of the psyche, acting like the focal or nodal
points of psychic life, in which the energy charge of the various archetypes of the
collective unconscious are concentrated.
An emotionally-charged complex acts like the epicenter of a magnetic field, attracting
and potentially assimilating into itself everything that has any resonance, relevance or
is related to itself in any way.
This inner process can be seen as it en-acts itself in the outer world when we come in
contact with someone who has an activated complex and we find ourselves drafted into
their process, picking up a role in their psyche. This is an outer reflection of how a
complex can attract, co-opt and subsume other parts of the environment, both inner
and outer, into itself.
Complexes, when split-off from consciousness, can potentially engulf and possess the
whole personality.
“Possession” is an interesting word. It conjures up immediate associations of the Devil,
who, mythologically speaking, is the one who “possesses” us, in the demonic sense of
the word.
Jung, however, differentiates his meaning of the word “possession” from the meaning
associated with the Catholic Church, for example, when he writes, “The Church’s idea of possession, therefore, is limited to extremely rare cases, whereas I would use it in a much wider sense as designating a frequently occurring psychic phenomenon.” Possession, psychologically speaking, is to identify with a complex of the unconscious, and become taken over by it such that we act it out in, as and through our lives.
Who among us hasn’t done this? Who among us shall cast the first stone?
Synchronistically, as I write this article, multiple examples of people becoming
possessed by and en-acting their unconscious on the world stage happened for
everyone to see.
Tennis star Serena Williams “losing it” when she fell into a rage at the U.S. Open,
Republican congressman Joe Wilson’s unrestrained outburst, yelling “You lie,” during
President Obama’s speech in front of congress, and rapper Kanye West melting down
and rudely interrupting and ruining country singer Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards all illustrate exactly what I am pointing at.
They were all “taken over by something.”
Jung writes,
“since the world began, mankind has been possessed.” Possession is synonymous with bondage. Jung comments that in states of possession it comes down to,
“the same age-old experience: something objectively psychic and strange to us, not under our control, is fixedly opposed to the sovereignty of our will.”
Possession means being supplanted by something stronger, being taken over and “owned” by something other than ourselves.
Jung says,
“Wherever we are still attached, we are still possessed; and when we are possessed, there is one stronger than us who possesses us.” We’ve all had moments where we’ve been possessed by something, where we’ve felt “not ourselves,” where we are no longer identical with ourselves.
Some of us spend our whole lives living someone else’s life instead of our own. We’ve
all had moments where “something” has gotten into us, where we feel out of sorts,
beside ourselves.
When deeper, primordial archetypes seize us, Jung writes, “They easily catch hold of you and you are possessed as if they were lions or bears, say – primitive forces which are quite definitely stronger than you.”
At any moment any one of us can become “possessed” by the unconscious in a way
such that a more powerful energy than our conscious ego moves and animates us.
To quote Jung,
“…it easily happens to any one of us that we do not act through our own volition. Then I cannot say I do, but it is done through me;
something takes possession of me, the very action can take possession of me.” When we have fallen into our unconscious and compulsively en-act an unconscious complex, we become manipulated by more powerful forces than ourselves. In Jung’s words, a person then becomes “the devil’s marionette.
This could happen only because he believed he had abolished the demons by declaring
them to be superstition.
He overlooked the fact that they were, at bottom, the products of certain factors in the
human psyche.” In dismissing the demons as being mere illusions without realizing
their psychological reality, we unwittingly become possessed by them. The demons
are ultimately split-off, rejected, and disowned parts of the psyche that are experienced
as alien and other than who we imagine ourselves to be (see “Meeting the Other
Within”).
The demons, psychologically speaking, are very real, in that they alter our experience
of ourselves. Jung says, “As a rule there is a marked unconsciousness of any complexes,
and this naturally guarantees them all the more freedom of action.
In such cases their powers of assimilation become especially pronounced, since unconsciousness helps the complex to assimilate even the ego, the result being a momentary and unconscious alteration of personality known as identification with the complex. In the Middle Ages it went by another name; it was called possession.”
We, as “modern” people, to the extent we are acting out our unconscious, are as much
“plagued” by possession as people in the Middle Ages.

Jung comments,
“…in all cases identification with the unconscious [complex] brings a weakening of consciousness, and herein lies the danger. You do not ‘make’ an identification, you do not ‘identify yourself,’ but you experience your identity with the archetype in an unconscious
way and so are possessed by it.” Anything we are unconsciously identical with we are possessed by, and hence, compelled to act out in our life without understanding why.
Though we have dismissed the idea of demons on the altar of our rationality, to quote
Jung, “…man himself has taken over their role without knowing it and does the devilish work of destruction with far more effective tools than the spirits did. In the olden days men were brutal, now they are dehumanized and possessed to a degree that even the blackest Middle Ages did not know.”
More than ever, current-day humanity is certainly acting as if it’s a species possessed.
Eminent theologian and 9/11 Truth Activist David Ray Griffin writes,
“It does seem that we are possessed by some demonic power that is leading us, trancelike, into self-destruction.”
Jung comments,
“…an unknown ‘something’ has taken possession of a smaller or greater portion of the psyche and asserts its hateful and harmful existence undeterred by all our insight, reason, and energy, thereby proclaiming the power of the unconscious over the conscious mind,
the sovereign power of possession.” When we are possessed we are not free, we are not masters in our own house.
When we are possessed by the unconscious, we become dissociated from ourselves
such that, as Jung writes, there is, “a tearing loose of part of one’s nature; it is the
disappearance and emancipation of a complex, which thereupon becomes a
tyrannical usurper of consciousness, oppressing the whole man. It throws
him off course and drives him to actions whose blind one-sidedness inevitably
leads to self-destruction.”AUTONOMOUS COMPLEXES

“Autonomous complexes” are parts of the psyche which have split-off due to shock,
trauma, or breach of our boundaries, and have developed a seemingly autonomous life
and apparently independent will of their own.
Though we are unconsciously identified with them, autonomous complexes are subjectively experienced as other than ourselves. Apart from their inherent obscurity
and strangeness, our unconscious identification with autonomous complexes is the
essential reason why it is so hard to get a handle on them.
Autonomous complexes act upon us, they feel like our most intimate self, eventually
need to be owned, but paradoxically, don’t belong to us. The seeming autonomy of the
archetypes and complexes is what gives rise to the idea of supernatural beings.
Endowed with a numinous energy, autonomous complexes are what our ancestors
used to call “demons.”

Demons

Autonomous complexes are a psychological name for the demons in the archetypal
process of addiction that animate us to compulsively act out our addictive behavior. A demon or autonomous complex, to quote Jung, “behaves like an animated foreign body in the sphere of consciousness. The complex can usually be suppressed, with an effort of will, but not argued out of existence, and at the first suitable opportunity it reappears in all its original strength.”
Due to their lack of association with the conscious ego, autonomous complexes are
typically not open to being influenced, educated, nor corrected by “reality.”
An intruder from the unconscious and a disturber of the peace, an autonomous
complex, Jung points out, “behaves exactly like a goblin that is always eluding our
grasp.” If left un-reflected upon, these demons or autonomous complexes wreak havoc for everyone within their sphere of influence.
Jung writes,
“…any autonomous complex not subject to the conscious will exerts a possessive effect on consciousness proportional to its strength and limits the latter’s freedom.” As it takes over and becomes in charge of a person, a complex incorporates a seemingly autonomous regime within the greater body politic of the psyche.
Writing about autonomous complexes, Jung says, “…the complex forms something like a shadow government of the ego,” in that the complex dictates to the ego.
When we are taken over by and in internal conflict with and because of an autonomous
complex, it is as if we, as natural rulers of our own psychic landscape, have been deposed, and are living in an occupied country.
We are allowed our seeming freedom as long as it doesn’t threaten the sovereignty and
dominance of the ruling power.
Jung comments,
“…a man does not notice it when he is governed by a demon; he puts all his skill and cunning at the service of his unconscious master, thereby heightening its power a thousand fold.” Being nonlocal, this inner, psychological situation can manifest both within our psyche and out in the world at the same time.
Demons or autonomous complexes have a possessive and obsessive effect on
consciousness. Interestingly, the word “obsession” originally meant to be under the
influence of an evil “possession.” Obsession refers to certain ideas that have taken
possession of the person.
We can become possessed by unshakable ideas of the way things should be or who
we think we are, oppressing and tyrannizing both ourselves and others who hold a
different viewpoint in the process.
Jung writes,
“The idea is like an autonomous being that wants a body so much that it even incarnates in the body; one begins to play, to perform the idea, and then people say one is completely mad. The idea has taken possession of one till it is as if one were out of one’s
mind.”
Millions of our species have killed and been killed over a fixed idea.
Commandeering and colonizing our psyche, a split-off, autonomous complex is,
potentially, like a “vampiric virus,” in that it is fundamentally “dead” matter; it is only in
a living being that it acquires a quasi-life. Just like a vampire re-vitalizes itself by
sucking our life-force, when we unconsciously identify with an activated autonomous
complex, we are literally animating and en-livening the undead.
Complicit in our own victimization, we then unwittingly give away our freedom, power,
and life-force in the process.
Like cancer cells ravaging the body, dis-associated, autonomous complexes are like
“splinter psyches” that can become overly swollen with psychic energy, and then will
propagate and metastasize themselves within the psyche, consuming, devouring, and
cannibalizing the healthy aspects of the psyche.
Drawing and attracting all of the wholesome parts of the psyche into itself, an
autonomous complex can potentially warp and destroy the psyche of the person (or
nation) so afflicted, non-locally infecting and spreading by psychic contagion its
malaise to the surrounding field in the process.
An autonomous complex can’t stand to be seen, however, in much the same way that
a vampire detests the light. A demon or autonomous complex will shape-shift and do
everything in its power to resist being illumined, for once it is seen, its autonomy and

omnipotence are taken away.
Anchored, connected and related to consciousness, the demon or autonomous complex can then no longer vaporize back into the unconscious, which is to say it is no longer able to possess us from behind and beneath our conscious awareness so as to compel us to unwittingly act it out and do its bidding (see “Shedding Light on Evil”).

FINDING THE NAME

When we “see” a demon, we know its name, which helps us to get a “handle” on it.
Naming is exorcistic, as it dis-spells the demon’s power over us.
Jung says that, “The act of naming is, like baptism, extremely important as regards
the creation of personality, for a magical power has been attributed to the name since time immemorial. To know the secret name of a person [or a demon] is to have power over him.” Elsewhere, Jung writes, “For mankind it was always like a deliverance from a nightmare when the new name was found.” Finding the name is an act of power.
Jung comments,
“The moment you can designate the lived archetype by its symbol, you feel relieved, that is a good and positive moment even if it is horrible… Therefore old Egyptian medicine consisted in giving the thing the right name… A new name always produces an extraordinary effect; we cannot rationalize these things, they cast a spell, they are symbols, they really do influence the unconscious as the unconscious influences
us.” It is very important for us to re-introduce the words “demon” and “possession” back into our vocabulary, minus the fear that we will be seen as being primitive, crazy or even
possessed ourselves if we use such words.
We need to expand our psycho-spiritual fluency to enable us to navigate the living waters of our inner and outer landscapes.
Being “possessed by demons” – taken over by unconscious, psychic forces – is something that happens to all of us, and it is to our great advantage to be able to properly name our experience. Finding the name empowers us to creatively engage with these parts of ourselves that are emerging from the shadows “in the name of healing.”
How do we make a word? We “spell” it. In finding the words for our experience, we are
casting a “positive spell” whose nonlocal orbit and influence is liberating.
We are then able to consciously language and give voice to our experience, which is to
step into and access the creative spirit. In learning new, creative ways to express
ourselves, we are dis-spelling the curse we were under of not being able to symbolize
our experience. In learning to consciously spell-cast, the world is no longer written in
stone, with us as its passive victims, as we realize and tap into the creative and
transformative power of the Word, the Logos. As it says in the Bible, “And first was the word. And the word was with God. And the
word was God.” Creating a new language so as to re-create ourselves anew, we
step into the archetypal figures of the “Wounded Healer” (read Part 1 and Part 2), and
the “Creative Artist.”
In animating these archetypal figures, we actively and creatively participate in our own
evolutionary process, expanding and refining the ways we tel-empathically commune
and telepathically communicate with each other, as well as with ourselves.
In addition, part of re-establishing the words “demon” and “possession” as meaning-
filled is to complement these words with the idea that if we have a reaction and become
“triggered” by these words, the figure within us who is being triggered might be the very
demon who is possessing us (see “Triggered by Evil”).
I’ve coined the name “NonLocal Demon” (“NLD” for short) to “capture” this elusive,
mercurial and nonlocal demon that “haunts” our world.
Like minting a coin, when we coin a phrase and find the name, we create currency in
the realm of mind with which to engage in commerce with each other, as well as with
ourselves.
This is to generate consciousness, which is something of genuine value. Once we see how the NLD clandestinely operates throughout the underlying field of consciousness by hiding and obfuscating itself through our unconscious, hooking and insinuating itself into our blind spots, we have simultaneously taken away its power and empowered ourselves, creating a wealth of new ways for us to creatively respond that were previously unavailable.
Being nonlocal, one of the ways the NLD incarnates itself is through our internal,
unconscious re-actions to encountering the myriad and ever shape-shifting forms and
guises of the NLD in the outer world. The way to most effectively deal with a demon is to courageously turn our attention upon what it triggers inside of us.
The Gnostic text “The Gospel of Philip” says, So long as the root of wickedness is hidden, it is strong. But when it is recognized, it is dissolved… When it is revealed, it
perishes… As for ourselves, let us each dig down after the root of evil which is within each of us, and produces its fruit in our hearts. It masters us. We are its slaves.
It takes us captive, to make us do what we do not want, and what we do want, we do not do. It is powerful because we have not recognized it.
(II, 3, 83.5-30)The source of the demons lies within ourselves. As compared to existing “by virtue” of something, demons can only live by the “lack of virtue” of our own obscured and
unexamined minds. The above Gnostic quote brings to mind Paul’s famous passage
from the New Testament, “That which I would do, I do not, and that which I would not
do, I do”, (Romans 7:15 King James version)…which is a clear and simple expression of our human proclivity for possession if there ever was one.
An un-illumined and unrecognized autonomous complex diabolically compels us to act
out contrary to our best intentions, as any of us who’ve struggled with any form of
addictive behavior knows from our own experience. Being possessed by demons is a problem as old as humanity. We are all potential shamans and healers, for as we metabolize the darkness and assimilate our own demons, we add light to and nonlocally
“lighten-up” the collective shadow for everyone (see “We are all Shamans-in-Training”).
If the demons are not integrated, neither is the human soul, which is to say that
embracing and integrating our demons is critical to the evolution of the soul.
Jung ponders,
“How can evil be integrated? There is only one possibility: to assimilate it, that is to say, raise it to the level of consciousness.” Raising the demons to the level of consciousness takes away their autonomous existence, as they rejoin the profound unity of the psyche.
Jung comments,
“Then the opus magnum [the ‘great work’ of alchemy] is finished; the human soul is completely integrated.” To quote noted psychologist Rollo May, the daemonic is, “any natural function which has the power to take over the whole person [or whole nation]… the daemonic can be either creative or destructive [i.e., demonic]… violence is the daemonic gone awry… ages [such as ours] tend to be times when the daemonic is expressed in its most destructive form.” The daemonic is not an objectively existing metaphysical entity in the Christian sense, but is an archetypal function of human experience, a psychic as well as an existential reality in which we all participate.

The daemonic is an archetypal energy which can take over a person, group or a nation.

Jung writes,
“We know that an archetype can break with shattering force into an individual human life and into the life of a nation.” Archetypes are living, dynamic entities, psychological
instincts or informational fields of influence that provide the underlying template which patterns human behavior, perception and experience.
The daemonic announces itself by drafting people into its service, enlisting human
beings as instruments of its full-bodied revelation of itself.
Jung comments,
“One does not realize yet that when an archetype is unconsciously constellated and not consciously understood, one is possessed by it and forced to its fatal goal.”
The daemonic expresses itself by conscripting us to its cause and compelling us to
unconsciously act it out so as to give living form to itself in the third dimension.
The word daemonic is related to “the devil,” which in turn is related to the word diabolic,
whose inner meaning is to divide, separate, and dis-integrate.
Being divisive, the diabolic splits us into multiple fragmented and compartmentalized pieces.
Jung comments,
“Possession by the unconscious means being torn apart into many people and things, a disiunctio. That is why, according to Origen [an early Christian theologian], the aim of the Christian is to become an inwardly united human being.” Becoming a true follower of Christ, who is symbolic of the wholly integrated Self, is to transform the diabolical nature of the disiunctio into a sacred coniunctio, where all the parts of the psyche are connected and the opposites unite.
This is why the greatest protection against demons is to be in touch with our intrinsic
wholeness, which is to be “self-possessed,” – in possession of the part of ourselves
that is not possess-able, which is the Self, the wholeness of our beingThe antonym of diabolic is the word symbolic, which, in addition to being the language
of dreams, means to unite, bring together and integrate. The daemonic is a quantum phenomenon, in that it contains both the symbolic and diabolic encoded within it in a superposed state, which is to say that hidden within the daemonic is the creative seeds of its own transformation.
Both constructive and destructive forces are fully present in the daemonic simultaneously, and either energy can potentially manifest, depending upon how an
observing consciousness interacts with it.
To quote Jung,
“…the daemon of the inner voice is at once our greatest danger and an indispensable help.” Hidden in the daemonic is our inner voice, our guiding spirit, our angel, and our genius. Jung refers to the daemonic as the “not yet realized creative,” which is to say it is
creativity not yet “made real” or actualized by the ego.
Developing a healthy and strong ego is crucially important in entering into relationship with and creatively expressing the daemonic energies within us. One of the most destructive things in the human psyche is unrealized creativity.
If the daemonic is not honored and treated religiously (i.e., carefully considered with
reverence and a sense of the sacred), however, it constellates negatively and turns truly
“demonic,” in the destructive sense of the word. Jung comments,
“Generally speaking the daemonic is that moment when an unconscious content of seemingly overwhelming power appears on the threshold of consciousness. It can cross this threshold and seize hold of the personality. Then it is possession.”
Before an archetype can be consciously integrated, it will always manifest itself
physically, because, in Jung’s words, “…it forces the subject into its own form.”
In its negative form, which is a truly virulent form of madness, we, because of our
unconsciousness, become a living conduit for the incarnation of an inhuman,
malevolent, predatory, rapacious energy that only cares about feeding its own
insatiable narcissism, ultimately victimizing, consuming, and cannibalizing both
ourselves and others in the process.
Describing this moment of being possessed, Jung elaborates, “The beast of prey seizes hold of him and soon makes him forget that he is a human being.
His animal affects hamper any reflection that might stand in the way of his infantile wish-fulfillments, filling him instead with a feeling of a new-won right to existence and intoxicating him with the lust for booty and blood.”This in-toxic-ating energy, which is the narcissistic ego running wild as it entrances itself, is the fuel which animates any form of addiction. “Intoxication,” to quote Jung, is “that most direct and dangerous form
of possession,” …as unless it is reflected upon, and therefore illuminated and transformed by the light of consciousness, it inevitably leads to self-destruction.Jung reminds us that,
“Insanity is possession by an unconscious content that, as such, is not assimilated to consciousness, nor can it be assimilated since the very existence of such conditions is denied.” We then fall into the infinite regression and self-perpetuating feedback loop of denying we are in denial, a self-created strain of madness that I have given the name “malignant egophrenia,” or “ME disease” for short.
This is a form of self-deception, dissociation and psychic blindness in which we are
ultimately lying to and hiding from ourselves. At a certain point this process entrenches
itself within the psyche such that it develops sufficient momentum to seemingly
become its own self-generating, autonomous entity. We’ve then become a “problem” to ourselves, creating our own Frankenstein monster in the process, and it is us.
We can then be said to be the incarnation of ME disease in the flesh, its revelation in
human form. Similar to being possessed by a demon, being taken over by ME disease
is simultaneously its own self-revelation; encoded within the apparent pathology is its
own medicine.
One of the main ways that demons become empowered within us is when we are
unconscious of our shadow. Jung says,
“Anyone who is unaware of his shadow is too wonderful, too good, he has a wrong idea of himself, and to that extent such a person is possessed.” The extent to which we are unconscious of our shadow is the extent to which we are unaware of our potential to unwittingly enact our unconscious in a way, which could be hurtful.
Jung writes,
“If we don’t see the negative side of what we do, what we are, we are possessed… Only through understanding of unconscious aspects, as a rule, can we liberate ourselves from possession.” Understanding “unconscious aspects” is to shed light on darker, asleep parts of ourselves – “the negative side of what we do” – which is essentially the act of becoming conscious. The demons act themselves out through our psychic blind-spots.
Jung comments,
“…the demon that is always with you is the shadow following after you, and it is always where your eyes are not.” The places where we are possessed by our unconscious are the
places in ourselves where we are not able to see, where “our eyes are not,” where
we are unable to self-reflectively speculate. Symbolically, this is like a vampire who casts no reflection in the mirror.
Jung writes,
“Since nobody is capable of recognizing just where and how much he himself is possessed and unconscious, he simply projects his own condition upon his neighbor, and thus it becomes a sacred duty to have the biggest guns and the most poisonous gas.”
Interestingly, Jung simply refers to “shadow projection,” a process in which we project
our own un-embraced aspects (our “own condition”) onto our neighbor, as “the lie.”
One of the meanings of the word “devil” is “the liar.” (see “Shadow Projection: The Fuel
of War,” and “Shadow Projection is its Own Medicine”). Projecting our shadow onto others is an activity which is itself an expression of the devil who is hiding within us, lurking behind the projection. Speaking about how easy it is for the “demons” to find a new victim,
Jung comments,
“…that won’t be difficult. Every man who loses his shadow, every nation that falls into self-righteousness, is their prey.” Jung comments on the state of being possessed by an archetype such as the daemonic when he writes, “For an archetype has a life of its own; the life that is proper and peculiar to the archetype shows its autonomy by the fact that
it can swallow one’s own life. It is so strong that one can be swallowed up into it and be nothing but that archetype. Of course, one does not know it.” The formless, invisible archetype has in-formed itself and made itself visible through the person, group or nation which it seizes.

They can be said to be the living incarnation of the archetype, as they are its full-blown
revelation in form. An essential quality of being possessed by the unconscious is that
we don’t know we’re possessed, for if we knew, we wouldn’t be possessed.
To quote Jung,
“When you are just at one with a thing you are completely identical – you cannot comprehend it, you cannot discriminate, you cannot recognize it.”
When we are identical with something, we are not able to differentiate ourselves from it,
which is to say, we have no freedom of choice relative to that with which we are
unconsciously identified.
When we identify with and act out the unconscious, we are truly unconscious.
Jung conjectures, “suppose I am identical with an archetype; I don’t know it and
the archetype of course won’t tell me, because I am already possessed and inundated by the archetype…
Just as I pay no attention to the hammer I use; I use it and afterwards I throw it away. It is not a personal hammer. That is the way the archetype uses man, simply as an instrument, as a tool of a most transitory kind.” Even though an archetype expresses itself through individuals, an archetype is impersonal. Archetypes enlist us for their purposes, taking
possession of us like a piece of property, and drop us when we are no longer of use.
Jung continues,
“But the man is of course in an awful situation. He is possessed, and he cannot defend himself, for he doesn’t even know that he is possessed, and that is a wonderful opportunity for the unconscious.” Not knowing we are possessed by the unconscious, it is as if the parents aren’t home, creating an opportunity for the kids (the unconscious) to act
out without restraint.
Jung says,
“The forces that burst out of the collective psyche have a confusing and blinding effect.”
The emergence of unconscious forces out of the collective unconscious typically evokes confusion and blindness, i.e., unconsciousness.
Jung continues,
“…as the influence of the collective unconscious increases, so the conscious mind loses its power of leadership. Imperceptibly it becomes the led, while an unconscious and impersonal process gradually takes control. Thus, without noticing it, the conscious personality is pushed about like a figure on a chess-board by an invisible player. It is
this player who decides the game of fate, not the conscious mind and its plans.”
It is as if an invisible coup has taken place within the psyche.
Falling into self-deception, the conscious mind is under the illusion that it is deciding,
that it is in control, while it is actually being led and manipulated like a puppet. To quote W.H. Auden, “We are lived by Powers we pretend to understand.”
Jung says,
“The devil is the aping shadow of God.” When we are possessed by the unconscious, a more powerful, archetypal energy shape-shifts and takes on our seeming form, which we absorb into, identify with and believe to be who we are.
Bamboozled and hoodwinked by the slick “salesmanship” of this imposter of ourselves,
we “buy” into its version of who we are. We then live a simulation of ourselves, miming ourselves, becoming a master copy, a duplicate of our original selves. To the extent we are unconsciously possessed by the daemon, it is as if a psychic parasite has taken over our brain and tricked us, its host, into thinking we are feeding and empowering ourselves while we are actually nourishing the parasite.
It is as if our soul has become hijacked by a deeper, archetypal force, and has been
replaced with a pale imitation of ourselves, and, to the extent we are taken over, we
don’t even realize it.
Archetypes, Jung points out, “have the most disagreeable quality of appearing in your own guise.” The spirit of the unconscious impersonates us, fooling even ourselves, as it cloaks itself in our form.
This mercurial spirit has “put us on” as a disguise, appearing as ourselves, or at least
who we imagine ourselves to be.
FORFEITING HUMANITY (extremism)
Describing the experience of being led and taken over by the unconscious, Jung continues, “whenever a powerful content emerges from the unconscious, which
we cannot yet grasp with our consciousness, there is a danger that the whole ego-consciousness will be pulled down into the unconscious and dissolved…
Consciousness is completely emptied, because its contents are attracted by the unconscious as by a magnet. This process leads to a complete loss of the ego, so that the person in question becomes a mere automaton.
Such a person is actually no longer there.” How many people do we know, including at times even ourselves, who zombie-like, compulsively and mechanically enact their habitual patterns with no spontaneity or creativity, like a programmed robot?
Jung says,
“One can only alter one’s attitude and thus save oneself from naively falling into an archetype and being forced to act a part at the expense of one’s humanity.
Possession by an archetype turns a man into a flat collective figure, a mask behind which he can no longer develop as a human being, but becomes increasingly stunted.” When we are possessed by an archetype, it’s as if we are frozen back in time, akin to what happens in trauma, where we become fixated in a rigidified and self-reinforcing point of view.
Unconsciously identified with the “persona,” the façade personality that we’ve created
for protection and present to the world, we have no real depth, and stop growing and evolving.
“Altering” our attitude would be to step out of our “alter-personality,” which is to stop
compulsively and ritualistically worshipping at the “altar” of the false self, and step into
our authentic self.
Jung elaborates on the process of falling under the spell of an activated archetype when
he writes, “…an archetype is mobilized within him which affects him like a narcotic.
That is typical; when you get into a situation where an archetype becomes constellated, you will undergo this peculiar hypnotic effect; you fall asleep rather suddenly.
It has a peculiar fascination which makes you unconscious.”The image of Dorothy and friends falling asleep in the poppy field as they approach the Emerald City in the movie “The Wizard of Oz” symbolically expresses this arche-typical situation of falling under a spell as we approach the sacred.
Jung points out that,
“The potentialities of the archetype, for good and evil alike, transcend our human capacities many times, and a man can appropriate its power only by identifying with the daemon, by letting himself be possessed by it, thus forfeiting his own humanity.”
In unconsciously identifying with and becoming possessed by the daemon, on the
personal, human level we forfeit our humanity and become an empty shell.
At the same time, however, we access, become channels for and are inflated by a
evolving.

In unconsciously identifying with and becoming possessed by the daemon, on the
personal, human level we forfeit our humanity and become an empty shell.
At the same time, however, we access, become channels for and are inflated by a
more powerful, archetypal, and nonhuman energy to come through us. When we are
possessed by an archetype, we are a paradoxical juxtaposition of subhuman and
superhuman qualities at the same time.
Jung continues,
“…anyone possessed by an archetype cannot help having all the symptoms of an inflation. For the archetype is nothing human; no archetype is properly human. The archetype itself is an exaggeration and it reaches beyond the confines of humanity… So anybody possessed by an archetype develops inhuman qualities.” When we become taken over by an archetype we become inflated, unconsciously identifying with God-like powers while simultaneously forgetting our humanity.
Jung clarifies,
“…we see the characteristic effect of the archetype: it seizes hold of the psyche with a kind of primeval force and compels it to transgress the bounds of humanity. It causes exaggeration, a puffed-up attitude (inflation), loss of free will, delusion, and enthusiasm in good and evil alike.”
Interestingly, one of the meanings of the word “evil,” etymologically speaking, is to
transgress boundaries. Continuing his description of the state of being possessed by
an archetype, Jung says, “…when a person has an unconscious content – say a certain
archetype is constellated – then his conscious, not realizing what the matter is, will be filled with the emanation or radiation of that activated archetype.
And then he behaves unconsciously as if he were that archetype, but
he expresses the identity in terms of his ego personality… For he unconsciously plays a role and tries to represent something which he has taken to be his own self.”
Behaving as if he, as an ego, were that archetype, he plays a mythical, archetypal role
and unconsciously identifies with it (“which he has taken to be his own self”), fooling
himself, and potentially others, in the process.
Jung continues,
“You see, the unconscious activated archetype is like a rising sun, a source of energy or warmth which warms up the ego personality from within, and then the ego personality begins to radiate as if it were God-knows-what.”
The formless archetype takes on and expresses itself through the limited and particular
form of the ego personality. The activated archetype transfigures the ego from within so
as to suit its purposes.
Jung continues,
“It is a psychological fact that an archetype can seize hold of the ego and even compel it to act as it – the archetype – wills. A man can then take on archetypal dimensions and exercise corresponding effects.”
INFLUENCING THE FIELD

Conflated with and inflated by the hypnotically fascinating psychic force-field of the
archetype, people so possessed become mouthpieces and amplifiers for the archetype
to transmit and non-locally extend and incarnate itself throughout the field of
consciousness.
Jung writes,
“people who constellate an archetype have such a hypnotic effect.” People who are gripped by an archetype have a gripping effect on others; when we are under the fascination of an archetype, we unwittingly have a fascinating influence on
others.
Jung makes the point that, “identification with an archetypal figure lend almost
superhuman force to the ordinary man.” People who are possessed by their unconscious have a very magnetic, charismatic and “possessive” effect upon others’ unconscious.
The part of them that is bewitched evokes the corresponding suggestible and bedeviled
part of others’ psyche and hooks it, spell-binding it and entraining it into its archetypal
spin. In other words, when someone is possessed by an archetype, they are literally the
channel through which that archetype, both locally and non-locally, is materializing in
the field, which is to say they wield great energetic influence on their surroundings.
Jung says, “But the power of the archetype is not controlled by us; we ourselves are at its mercy to an unsuspected degree… because everyone is in some degree ‘possessed’ by his specifically human pre-formation, he is held fast and fascinated by it and exercises the same influence on others without being conscious of what he is doing.
The danger is just this unconscious identification with the archetype.” To the extent we are identified with and hence possessed by the archetype, is the extent to which we are not conscious of the corresponding influence we have on others’ unconscious.
This is a dangerous situation because it is unconsciously being en-acted in such a way
that guarantees that we will abuse our unresolved power issues to the extent that we
stay unconscious.
Jung gets right to the point when he writes, “When someone is able to perform the art of touching on the archetypal, he can play on the souls of people like on the strings of a
piano.” Connecting with the archetypal is like plucking a higher-dimensional chord of our being, which immediately activates a resonance in the collective unconscious in whoever
hears it. Just like the pendulum with the strongest swing entrains all the other pendulums into its swing, the person who is channeling the living power of the deeper, archetypal force can potentially en-train and en-trance others. This power can be used for the highest
good – helping people to awaken – or it can be used for the deepest evil so as to manipulate, dis-empower and enslave other people.
Being archetypal, this energy is fundamentally neither good nor bad, but can potentially
manifest either way depending upon our intent.
Speaking of the hypnotic power of the archetype, Jung writes, “It gets you below the belt and not in your mind, your brain just counts for nothing, your sympathetic system is gripped. It is a power that fascinates people from within, it is the collective unconscious which is activated, it is an archetype which is common to them all that has come to life.”
When an archetype is constellated, rational logic and facts have no effect.
The deep emotion which is characteristic of an activated archetype ensures that, to
quote Jung, “…the possibility of reason’s having any effect ceases and its place is
taken by slogans and chimerical wish-fantasies. That is to say, a sort of collective possession results which rapidly develops into a psychic epidemic.”
Being unconsciously identified with an archetype is extremely dangerous, in that it is at
the root of both individual and collective psychoses. Our tendency to unknowingly fall into the grip of an archetype is animating what is being acted out in the world theater, which is to say that the origin of world events is the unconscious of humanity (see “It’s All in the Psyche”).
Jung writes,
“Nobody can realize an archetype without having been identified with it first.”
Speaking of our initial tendency to identify with and become hooked by activated
archetypes, Jung continues, “…you cannot realize them without having been thoroughly
caught by them.” No one can realize their daemon without first having been unconsciously identified with it, which is to say, caught by it, and hence, possessed by it.
In the process of integration, we have to learn to experience our archetypal daemon from the outside as well as from the inside.
Experiencing the archetype from the outside means to experience it objectively, as
other than ourselves, which is to separate ourselves from it, for an archetype, in Jung’s
words, “…can be truly understood only if experienced as an autonomous entity.”
Ultimately, we have to eventually both see the archetype as an object outside of
ourselves as well as experience what it’s like relative to us, which is an experience
within ourselves.Maybe there’s a hidden reason in the deeper plan of things why
we, as a species, have a tendency to be taken over by our unconscious.
Jung points out that,
“…autonomous complexes are among the normal phenomena of life and that they make up the structure of the unconscious psyche.” Having autonomous complexes, or having a spare demon or two in our closet, is a “normal” human phenomenon, something we all

possess at the same time that it possesses us.
Identifying with our unconscious such that we act it out, i.e., being possessed, seems
to be a natural expression of the human experience. Might there be a hidden evolutionary potential, an underlying teleology, a mysterious purpose or goal, which is possessing us to act as we do?
Perhaps we are being dreamed up to be the very instruments and midwives through
which the archetypes transform themselves, the world, and ourselves as well.
Becoming possessed by the unconscious is, paradoxically, the way we learn how not
to be possessed, which we clearly haven’t learned yet, or we wouldn’t be possessed.
By differentiating ourselves from the archetype, we make it conscious, while creating
ourselves relative to it. In relating to the archetype consciously, we do not fall under the
thrall of the archetype, but are able to mediate, humanize and channel its transpersonal
energies and contents in a constructive, creative and life-enhancing way.
As we connect with each other through our lucidity, we can potentially become a
vehicle through which the archetypes themselves transform and evolve, which
instantaneously, and non-locally, has a transformative and evolutionary effect
throughout the entire collective field of consciousness.
Mythologically speaking, the figure of the “would-be-hero,” which is all of us in
potential, is always inhabited by a daemon. Having a daemon taking up residence
inside of us is the very thing that “makes” us a hero. Our heroic fight against the paralyzing grip of the daemon is initiatory, in that it calls forth our latent, creative powers. In coming to terms and wrestling with our daemon, which is to say ourselves, we create ourselves.
The daemon is the source of all creativity. It takes genuine courage to do battle with
these internal forces and wrest from them the mythic “treasure hard to attain,” which is
none other than our soul-filled selves.
Jung comments,
“As the result of the political situation and the frightful, not to say diabolic, triumphs of science, we are shaken by secret shudders and dark forebodings; but we know no way out, and very few persons indeed draw the conclusion that this time the issue is the
long-since-forgotten soul of man.”When we realize an archetype such as the daemonic, we are able, from the inside out, to channel its transpersonal power into a creative, soul-full, life-giving spirit that comes from a source beyond our ego.
Encoded in the daemonic is everything we need for our healing and self-realization, as if
the daemonic is a compensation of the deeper unified and unifying field of
consciousness, offering us exactly what is required for us to wake up. The demons are
like psychic nautilus machines that we are dreaming up to help us develop our muscles
of realization.
Alchemically transmuting on the spot the potential destructiveness of the demonic into
stimulators of our own creative lucidity, we give birth to our daemon, our guiding spirit.
Or rather, in that moment our daemon gives birth to us. Realizing an archetype such as the daemonic is to realize ourselves as an active, participatory agent in the creation of our experience of ourselves relative to the world.

This realization comes with great responsibility. We are offered a choice: either we
continue to destroy ourselves, or we learn together how to create a new world.
Everything depends upon our recognizing what is being revealed to us as we act our
unconscious out in the world. The emergence of the daemonic in our world is both potentially and actually the doorway into and revelation of the light.
Being a function of our consciousness, how the daemonic materializes – as the
deepest, destructive evil, or as creative genius, depends upon nothing other than how
we dream it.
Jung comments,
“The archetype is spirit or anti-spirit: what it ultimately proves to be depends on the attitude of the human mind.”When we become possessed by the unconscious, we become
unconsciously taken over by our primal, animal-like instincts in such a way that we regress, devolve and fall into our lower nature.
Jung elaborates,
“Only the animal man can be possessed…It is easier to talk or to argue with a dog or a cow than with someone possessed by such a figure. For nothing that one says permeates, it is impossible to pierce the wall they put up, it is a wall of unconscious beliefs, and
people behind the wall cannot be reached.

They are totally inaccessible.

There is no access because the human being is degraded to the state of an animal, and the thing that seems to function is not a divine being, it is a ghost.”I imagine we all know people like this, people who are under a spell such that there is really no talking with them, as they perversely take in and interpret whatever reflection is being offered of their unconsciousness as evidence of the rightness of their deluded point of view.
Psychologically speaking, they are possessed, as if an “entity” has taken them over,
they are no longer there, and they have no idea, literally, of their situation.
When a group of people in this condition enter into agreement about the “truth,” and
become card-carrying members of a dogmatic “ism,” a collective psychosis is being
brewed in the cauldron of the collective unconscious.
COLLECTIVE PSYCHOSIS
Jung never tired of warning that the greatest danger that faces humanity is to
unwittingly fall into our unconscious en masse such that we become instruments for a
psychic epidemic to wreak havoc in the world, just like we see today (see “Diagnosis:
Psychic Epidemic”).
Jung writes that psychic epidemics “…are infinitely more devastating than the worst of natural catastrophes. The supreme danger which threatens individuals as well as whole nations is a psychic danger.” We are in the midst of a collective psychosis that has become so normalized that very few people are even talking about it, which is itself an
expression of our collective madness. (see “Why Don’t We See our Collective Madness”?)
Jung writes,
“…collective psychoses are based on a constellated archetype, though of course this fact is not taken into account at all. In this respect our attitude is still characterized by a prodigious unconsciousness.” Once these archetypal contents become activated in the
unconscious, Jung elaborates, it is like, “they have taken possession of certain individuals, irresistibly draw them together by mutual attraction and knit them into smaller or larger groups which may easily swell into an avalanche.” People who have fallen into their unconscious naturally attract and connect with each other, as they reciprocally reinforce each other’s madness.
An impenetrable bubble of shared, rigid beliefs gets conjured up around them which
deflects and resists any self-reflection which threatens their fixed worldview. Anyone
who reflects back their unconscious state is demonized and seen as a heretic,
blasphemer and enemy. Though using individuals as its instruments, evil needs the
unconscious masses for its genesis and proliferation on the world stage. Masses are
always breeding grounds of psychic epidemics. In a collective psychosis there is a herd
mentality, where people stop thinking for themselves and let others think for them,
like sheep (“sheeple”) who just follow wherever they are being led.
Jung writes that whoever buys into the collectively agreed upon group-think, “is infected with the leprosy of collective thinking and has become an inmate of that insalubrious stud-farm called the totalitarian State.”
When we give away our power, there is always someone bearing the authority of the
State who is more than happy to accept our offering, feeding the insatiable will-to-power
of the shadow.
Jung comments,
“The shepherd’s staff soon becomes a rod of iron, and the shepherds turn into wolves.”
Being archetypal, the reciprocal process of people giving away their power to others
who abuse it simply because they can has continually re-created itself all throughout
history. Jung warns us that, “The most dangerous things in the world are immense
accumulations of human beings who are manipulated by only a few heads.”
In a collective psychosis, the many are manipulated by the few who are attracted to
holding power over others.
Jung points out that, “Whoever prefers power, is therefore, in the Christian view,
possessed by the devil. The psychologist can only agree.” In a psychic epidemic, the masses, led and inspired by the few who are perversely possessed by and addicted to the need for power, collectively collude with, support and mutually rein-force each others’ irrational beliefs, narcissistic needs, and fears, creating a culture crazy beyond belief.
This culture, or lack thereof, is simultaneously the cause and effect of their madness,
as they collectively incarnate a living, self-fulfilling prophecy. They become the
instruments through which the NLD, the nonlocal demon, reproduces itself, like a multi-
headed hydra, in, as, and through the field.BLESSINGS IN DRAG

Jung writes,
“This state of possession shows itself almost without exception in the fact that the possessed identify themselves with the archetypal contents of their unconscious, and because they do not realize that the role which is being thrust upon them is the effect of new contents still to be understood, they exemplify these concretely in their own
lives, thus becoming prophets and reformers [in the negative sense, such as falling into a megalomaniacal inflation]” People who have been swallowed up by the archetype and fallen into the unconscious, instead of shedding light on and integrating the meaning of
the activated unconscious contents within themselves, are unwittingly acting out the
mythic, symbolic dimension of “the role which is being thrust upon them” in concretized,
literal form on the stage of life.
The new contents are understood when we realize that the role, which is coming through us, has its origin in the collective unconscious itself, as if we are playing a role in a cosmic drama. In addition to bestowing upon us a choice of how we want to play
this role, this realization snaps us out of personally identifying with the role as well.
The part of us that has been unconsciously possessed becomes liberated, creating
more consciousness in the process.
When we become taken over by the unconscious, to quote Jung, “…the unconscious in large measure ousts and supplants the function of the conscious mind. The unconscious usurps the reality function and substitutes its own reality. Unconscious thoughts…manifest themselves in senseless, unshakable judgments upheld in the
face of reality.” When we find ourselves ignoring factual evidence and holding a “magical” belief that we rationally know not to be true, we are under a spell, being
“driven” by the unconscious, which is at that point in the driver’s seat.
The psychic factors, which make possession possible, are suggestibility, lack of critical
discernment, unwillingness or inability to self-reflect, fearfulness, propensity to
superstition and prejudice.
The contents that take us over when we are possessed by the unconscious appear as
phobias, exaggerated affects, peculiar convictions, idiosyncrasies, stubborn plans,
compulsions and obsessions, all of which are not open for discussion or correction.
Demons work through our psyche, “managing our perceptions” in a way such that we
aren’t able to see their influence. Demons bedazzle, bewitch, and bedevil
consciousness in such a way that we become blind to our own underlying, assumed
viewpoint.
We fall under their spell when we become entranced by our own version of reality in such a way so as to think the world “objectively” exists as we perceive it, separate
from our own mind.
In other words, we fall under the power of the demons when we become fixated in our
non-negotiable viewpoint and imagine that what we are seeing objectively exists, in
solid form, outside of ourselves, in a way that applies to everyone.
We then draw to ourselves all the evidence we need to prove to ourselves the seeming
truth of our self-evident viewpoint, confirming our delusion that we are separate from and
not participating in helping to create the very situation we find ourselves in, which we
are ultimately creating. I call this “Aparticipatory Delusional Syndrome,” or ADS for
short (see “Delusions of Separation”).
On the other hand, we break the spell of the demons when we realize that every
moment of our experience is inseparable from our own consciousness, which is to
recognize the fluid, non-objective and thus, “dreamlike nature” of reality. Just like
figures in a dream, the demons are, ultimately speaking, our own energy, not separate
from our own mind (see “God the Imagination”).
Just like a dream, the way we observe the world literally evokes the very world we are
observing. This means that it is through our awareness itself that we can intervene in the
underlying matrix of creation and find the leverage point where we can change the waking dream we are having, which is “evolution-in-action.” Interestingly, we wouldn’t have woken up and had this realization without the antagonistic co-operation of the demons, which is to say the demons are secretly allies in disguise, catalysts of consciousness appearing as adversaries, blessings in drag (see “The Light of Darkness”).

NOT THE ONLY ONE

Jung writes,
“The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate.” To the extent that we are not consciously working on
integrating, via the process of individuation, the unconscious contents and conflicts that are activated within us, is the extent to which these psychic contents will manifest
externally and be unconsciously acted out collectively in a literal, concrete way on the world stage.
Jung comments,
“One shouldn’t evade this conflict by escaping into a premature and anticipated state of redemption, otherwise one provokes it in the outside world. And that is of the devil.”
An activated psychic content not realized consciously in the course of individuation
manifests externally, where it gets “dreamed up” in, as, and through the outer world.
To use Jung’s metaphor, the sponsor of this project(ion) is “the devil.”
Jung says,
“The world powers that rule over all mankind, for good or ill, are unconscious psychic factors…We are steeped in a world that was created by our own psyche.” This brings to mind various quotes in the Bible about “powers and principalities” that rule over humanity, which is the metaphysically equivalent expression of our psychological situation.
1 The Gospel of Luke, for example, has the devil say that the kingdoms of the world are under his control (4:5-6).
2 The Gospel of John speaks of the devil as “the ruler of the world.” (14:30, 16:11)
3 The First Letter of John says that “the whole world lies under the power of the evil one.” (5:19)
4 Paul speaks of Satan as “the god of this world.” (Gal. 1:4; Cor. 4:4)
Whether we call it a demon or an unconscious psychic factor, the force that rules over
us is created by and an expression of our own psyche.

Reflecting upon the First World War, Jung says, “When fate, for four whole years, played out a war of monumental frightfulness on the stage of Europe – a war that nobody
wanted – nobody dreamed of asking exactly who or what had caused the war and its continuation.” Similarly, in today’s “war on terror,” a war that nobody, or at least very few people want, we need to dream of asking exactly who or what has caused this
war and its continuation.
Jung continues,
“Nobody realized that European man was possessed by something that robbed him of all free will. And this state of unconscious possession will continue undeterred until we Europeans become scared of our ‘god-almightiness’ [inflation].
Such a change can begin only with individuals, for the masses are blind brutes, as we know to our cost.” The real carrier of life is the individual. Real transformation doesn’t come through mass movements, or new legislation, but via change within the
individual.
Speaking about the effects of being identified with, possessed and inflated by the
unconscious, Jung writes, “Everything that exceeds a certain human size evokes equally
inhuman powers in man’s unconscious. Totalitarian demons are called forth.”
As a result of becoming overly one-sided in a multi-sided universe, “totalitarian
demons” are “dreamed up” both within the unconscious, and, synchronistically, out in
the world. Events in the outer world are symbolic reflections of what we are dreaming inside of ourselves (see “Catching the Bug of Synchronicity”). What this means is that the most effective way to change the world is to change us.
Jung writes,
“…the historic events of our time have painted a picture of man’s psychic reality in indelible colors of blood and fire, and given him an object lesson which he will never be able to forget if – and this is the great question – he has today acquired enough consciousness to keep up with the furious pace of the devil within him.” Will we, each one of us, be able to mediate, channel and transform the archetypal, daemonic energy which is flowing through us into creativity such that we can constructively build a new world?
This is the question upon whose answer rests the future survival or destruction of the
world as we know it.
Jung says, “Mankind, because of its scientific and technological development, has
in increasing measure delivered itself over to the danger of possession… Man’s worst sin is unconsciousness… When shall we… in all seriousness seek ways and means to
exorcize him, to rescue him from possession and unconsciousness, and make this the most vital task of civilization?” When shall we make “the most vital task of civilization” the exorcism of the demons that possess us? In other words, when shall we make our most vital task “waking up?”
Jung saw this present-day manifestation of the daemonic as an archetypal expression
of the potentially catastrophic upheavals that accompany the great transitions from one
age to the next.
When an archetype like the daemonic appears, both within ourselves and out in the
world, things become critical, with possibilities for both good and evil alike. How things
actually turn out depends upon how consciousness responds to the situation.
During a collective manifestation of the daemonic, such as we have today, the great
danger is a mass movement where millions, or even billions of people fall into their
unconscious together, igniting a psychic epidemic which spawns an apocalyptic war
that ravages life on earth and destroys the biosphere of the planet (see “Archetypal
Dimensions of World Events”).
To quote Jung,
“The unconscious works sometimes with most amazing cunning, arranging certain fatal situations, fatal experiences, which make people wake up.” Catastrophe can only be avoided if enough people wake up to what is being revealed to us as we act out the unconscious, and then connect with each other so as to de-activate, assimilate, and transform the potentially deleterious effects of the activated daemon. We can then, under the guidance of the Self, our intrinsic wholeness, help each other
to usher in a new era of sustainable peace, understanding and mutual co-operation.
Our very continued existence as a species on this beautiful planet depends upon this
realization.
To be pessimistic and think that we can’t change the trajectory of our species’ suicidal,
trance-like behavior is to be under a spell, to have fallen under a “demon’s curse.”
Having fallen under such a spell, we only strengthen and solidify our spell-bound
convict-ion by acting as if there are no other possible outcomes. Pessimism is food for
the demons (see “Our Situation is Dire, and There’s no Need for Pessimism”).
