"WE" provided us with an account of an experience that we refer to as "dream gnosis". It is one of the best descriptions of this experience that we have ever come across. It is exactly what Gnostics seek to achieve, but in the waking rather than sleeping state. At a later date, we will reveal just how accurately WE's description matches the true nature of existence.
"Here is what happened to me. I usually refer to it as my 'God Experience'. In 1996, on New Year's Eve, I went to sleep and had a dream that was much more real than anything that preceded or came after it in my everyday life. I found myself without a body, without a name, not in any particular location, and without a sense of identity. I was everywhere at once. If there was anything I wanted to see, all I had to do was think of it. Anywhere I wanted to go to, I was there. It was as if I had become everything. I could feel anything and everything. I knew how a tree felt when the wind passed through its branches (it tickles.) I knew how the wind felt being shredded by the tree. I felt the feelings of the mouse in the cat's jaws, and the feeling of the cat with the mouse in its jaws. I felt what it was like to make love as a woman. I could experience the epic struggles of the lives of everything that lived, and when their lives were over, I would experience their story, and their story became part of my story. And whatever happened, it was okay. Somehow I could handle all this input, though it should have been overwhelming.
I went on this way for a long time (not that I was experiencing time: I was outside it), and then something happened. I felt myself becoming more concentrated or focused, so to speak. I found myself 'on the ground', where some beings came to me with what looked like some sort of electrical wiring harness, capped at the top by a gray round knob. This thing was put on me somehow. I realized later that it was a spinal cord and brain. Somehow I developed a shape to conform to this device, and then I was made to crawl inside some kind of bag (skin, I figured out later.) At this point, I started losing my big-picture perspective; I became limited. I had certain characteristics, a certain type of personality, certain talents. I had become an individual. I had a sense that there was something I was supposed to do when I became this person, but what it was, I didn't know.
At this point, I woke up, and saw my familiar ceiling, looked down and saw my body bulging the blanket on my bed. I felt totally disoriented. It took a minute or two to remember who I was, and then I had to deal with a huge feeling of disappointment that I was me again, and a feeling of loss and sadness that I had come back to my own limited perspective."
WE's dream would be described as "transcendental" by "JS", an individual with a number of tremendous insights to impart. He has provided details of three extraordinary dreams:
Dreams are taken for granted. People usually describe them as "nice" or "nightmarish" without further consideration or analysis. Most of them are indeed nothing more than subconscious reflections of our daily experiences, our basic fears and hopes, simple exercises in wish fulfilment.
However, certain dreams reveal much about ourselves and other people, about our surroundings and significant places, than our minds could ever construct from everyday data alone. Learning to separate dreams that aid spiritual advancement from ordinary ones is crucial for every searcher. What follows is based mostly on personal experience, but such experiences often demonstrate a "collective" truth.
Dreams can be classified according to the following categories:
7. "Soul contact"
Standard dreams are about our fears, desires, things that happened to us recently or might happen to us in the near future, things that preoccupy our conscious minds.
Lucid ones are the same, except that we are aware that we are dreaming and can have a certain degree of control over these dreams.
"Architect" dreams are advanced versions of lucid dreams where we not only control our decisions and the resultant outcomes, but can also completely construct the dream and direct practically every aspect of it. The problem with such dreams is that they are difficult to sustain, since our consciousness is on the verge of the waking state.
Repetitive dreams are those where certain sequences of events, numbers, phrases etc. repeat like a broken record for a long, long (perceived) time. I often have them after longer periods of intellectual stress such as studying/reading, spending too much time on the PC (especially playing video games), working on a project etc.
Incomprehensible dreams are those where no meaning at all can be discerned: they are just a jumble of confusion, but may reflect inner turmoil we are experiencing and uncertainty about what direction we are going in.
The final three types of dream are the most important ones. They can't be manipulated like lucid ones, even if we are aware that we are dreaming, and they are always much more real and vivid than regular ones, often leaving us with strong emotions, even after waking.
"Insightful" are the first level. They can reveal things about past, unresolved issues that we have tried to forget, but which always haunt us until we confront them, or they can give us a view of possible futures. How many times have you dreamt about something that seemed significant but you couldn't find any connection with your current life, only to remember it when it actually happened, sometimes after a long time had elapsed? They are often symbolic so the messages they contain may not be clear right away.
"Soul contact" dreams are those where we have the ability to communicate with the souls of other people. Have you ever dreamt of doing something with people whom you've never met before, yet it seemed as though you'd known each other forever? This is a broad category since it also covers meetings with souls of the "dead", "outer" entities (gods, aliens, angels - however you perceive them), higher selves of other people, and ultimately, our own higher self. While insightful dreams are more concerned with objects and space, these are focused on specific entities. Most people never reach the highest levels of soul contact. Do you know why? Because they never try. It's important to mention that many of these "contacts" carry huge importance for our spiritual development. They are like the social life of our unconscious. Just as we consciously interact with others in our normal lives, our soul-contact-dreams allow us to interact with others in the realm of the unconscious.
Transcendental dreams, the very highest and most profound dreams, are the ones connecting this and "other" worlds. I will discuss these at a later date.
I have had several overwhelming dreams at certain times in my life. I will share a few of these, and I hope they resonate with others.
The Heretical Dream
I was raised as a Christian. That's what I was told to believe, and, at the time, I had no alternatives. My belief was not based on reason but fear. My life was far from pleasant back then, and I was afraid that if I broke "the law", God would punish me even more. Unfortunately, that's the mindset most Christians have.
One night, I dreamt about "heaven". Somehow I found myself there, but it felt completely wrong. Gray was the dominant color and everything was oddly empty.
I am about to see God was my first thought. Just as I started moving towards the center, I was blocked by an angelic figure. "Stop!" it said. "You shouldn't be here."
"Why?" I asked. It remained silent and started to push me away. If that had happened when I was awake, I would probably have obeyed without question, but for some reason I declined. "I want to see God," I said, standing my ground.
At that moment, I felt something strange. I realized I was much more powerful than the angel and that it couldn't stop me. It realized it too, and ran to call for support. As I moved forward, I encountered more of them. Most were shocked by my presence (I was an alien entity there). But not everyone there was an angel. Some were ordinary "souls" serving them, and being rewarded with "salvation". Soon, more powerful ones were called to stop me. Over and over again, I just pushed them aside. It was rather liberating.
Finally, I reached the throne. There was "God", sitting with a golden crown in his right hand. I was frightened and amazed at the same time. But I couldn't see his face. Something blocked his "form" from being fully revealed. And he seemed sort of distant, as though he was not really there.
Weird, but my attention was completely focused on the crown. It had of number of "spikes" (those things on top of crowns), and I felt the number was highly significant, but did not know why, or had forgotten. Much to my surprise, he completely ignored me. There was something arrogant about him, as though he enjoyed not acknowledging my presence, and perhaps my very existence.
All of that left me despondent. "Heaven" was not what I had expected. And "God" didn't seem godlike at all (there was no "divine" feeling about him). But just as I decided to return, something caught my attention: a strange gate behind "God's" throne. There were stairs leading to it.
What could possibly be "above" God? (So far, everything was placed in height, from the lowest to the highest ranks, decreasing in numbers but increasing in power, with "God" being the supreme ruler.)
That idea was hard to grasp, even in a dream. Something was tempting me to open that mysterious gate. But, just as I tried, a strong force launched me back. And then they appeared...
"You go no further!" something shouted in a deep voice, pointing a sword at me. That being also seemed angel-like, but was completely different from the others I had encountered so far. Unlike other inhabitants of that place who were all servants of the "King", they didn't bow to him but stood as virtual equals. Their power was immense, almost the same as God's. I knew I was no match for them in my current state.
"How dare you intrude in this sacred place, showing such disrespect?!" one of them shouted. "We will banish you to hell for this!" I was in shock. After that, it turned towards the throne. "Sorry for arriving this late, Great One. We will deal with the intruder right away." I used that moment of distraction to sneak past him to the gate.
"You wont be able to open it," said another one of those beings in a calm voice. Unlike the first one, it found my presence quite entertaining, almost wishing to assist me.
"Why, what's behind it?" I asked.
"God," it said, smiling.
"God? But he's right over there!" I looked around as though it were mocking me.
"It leads to the God above god."
Wait, God above God? That made no sense!
"Go on and try to see it for yourself," it said as though it had read my mind. Already frustrated with this strange theater play, I decided to do it no matter what. But the first "guardian" stood in front of me again preventing me from moving further.
"Let him!" God suddenly spoke.
"But that's forbidden, even for us!" the guardian replied.
"Let him see," God repeated, so confident in himself, as though he was sure I wouldn't be able to grasp the knowledge awaiting me.
Disgruntled, the guardian moved aside. To everyone's surprise, I managed to open the gate and get inside.
Unlike other areas of "heaven" this place had a mystical feeling, as though it was actually somewhere else. In the center I saw another throne. But there was no one sitting on it; only a crown on the seat. That crown was larger, had a greater number of spikes (that number also meant something, but I didn't know what) and had an incredibly divine feeling about it. It was also very familiar, as if I had seen it before. And above that throne, there was a kind of portal, leading into the unknown.
"Your God is not here, and will never be," said the lesser God. "I am his appointed prince, destined to rule over this world, and these are my brethren." He pointed at the guardians. His voice was vaguely sad, as though he were undergoing a great inner struggle that he was trying to disguise with arrogance.
"What's that strange vortex?" I asked, thinking about the portal above the True God's throne.
"What vortex?" None of them seemed to see it.
I decided to try and enter it, but it was too late. The next moment I was slashed by the guardian's sword, and I woke up with distinctly mixed emotions.
That dream left me feeling somehow...different. It was not the first of that type (insightful, possibly "soul contact"), but it symbolized the beginning of my quest for the "God above God" (the True God in Gnosticism). What's interesting is that I had nowhere to get these ideas from. Christianity, along with a little superstition, was everything I had ever known.
Profound dreams are very rare and many years can pass between one and the next. While the previous dream happened some time ago, this one happened recently.
It was a regular dream at first. I was standing at a crossroads in my local neighbourhood feeling uncertain of which direction to take, but soon things changed and I seemed to be in a mysterious place between this world and another.
And then she appeared.
She was a "light being", of the type that I often see in special dreams. She took the form of one girl I know, but had the opposite personality. In reality, she is stupid, selfish, envious etc. and not very attractive. In this form, she was...perfect.
Somehow I sensed my energy from "before" (this life, this universe etc.), the source of my (non-material) being (and power). Like a starved dog, I rushed towards her, trying to somehow (re)unite, to become one being with her (in a non-sexual way), but still remain "myself". It's one of those things you must experience in order to understand.
"There will be time for that," she said, rejecting me. I could see the sadness in her eyes, as though she pitied me. "You forgot some things, didn't you?" she continued with a sympathetic smile. At that moment, distant memories started passing through my mind. Every trouble, every dilemma I had in life began to look laughably simple and insignificant. This entire world, and everything happening in it, seemed like some twisted game not to be taken too seriously. Again, I was "connected". The knowledge I possessed at that moment seemed almost infinite. Somehow everything made sense.
But I couldn't bring any of it "back". All I remember is that the reality I was experiencing at that moment was not following the same rules as this one (i.e. here on earth). But it's exactly that difference that made me understand this one better. How, I wish I knew. After that, I started realizing some mistakes that I had made, especially the ones I was making at this moment (some were related to my everyday life, some to my "mission").
And in such a state of mind, you can't simply stop thinking about something and make it go away, or find thousands of excuses to make it seem less important. Things are simply as they are. There is no running away or hiding behind a persona (ego). All masks fall down.
"You must lead them (your little brothers/sisters)," she spoke again. Images of many people started passing through my mind. There was nothing special about them, but they seemed to possess a certain quality that is more valuable than all the money and power in this world combined. Those people were the host of "the rebellion".
"Why me?!" I shouted in anger.
"Well, it's not like you have anything better to do," she replied caustically, reflecting on the utter pointlessness of my life. "I see that you have many scars, made both by your inner demon as well as by those from outside. This world has ("they" have) weakened you. But still, you are not lost. Whatever happens, just remember who you are."
The "link" started to fade. With every moment passed, everything seemed more grim and empty. Just before it ended completely, I asked her one more thing. "When?"
"Soon" she said. "Hold on for a little longer, it's closer than you think. Even
though it might not appear so. This is the calm before the storm..."
This dream was much more "futuristic", even though its events took place long before the time we are in now. I happened to live in a world much like this one. It was the only place in this universe that I could consider home: a highly advanced civilization, with near-godlike abilities and technology. It passed through all the trials humans are facing, a history even more bloody than our own. But eventually, they earned their place "under the sun".
Their society was organized in a manner that might seem strange to us. They were very religious, but that religion was completely in tune with the science. And it was based on spirituality/divine knowledge instead of deities. That religion, fused with superior technology, made us virtually immortal and allowed us to enjoy existence to its fullest. We were free. Our only duty was to maintain this state, and help those less evolved to reach our level. We had royalty (rulers) but their rule was not hereditary: it had to be earned. Periodically, we elected new ones. Such elections, however, were not based on popularity. They had to prove their worth in a number of difficult trials. Only the most powerful and wise/benevolent ones could claim the title of ruler. And it was much more a responsibility and burden than a privilege. I served as one of the advisers/generals for the council. Why would a near-perfect society have a need for generals you might wonder. Well, we were not alone there. Other civilizations existed around us. Some of them were even more advanced/powerful, but, unfortunately, still trapped in the cycle of death and slavery.
We had something called the "divine technology" that made us safe from various predators (physical as well as mental/spiritual). Needless to say, there were many (especially those at war with us) who wanted to lay their hands on it. But in the wrong hands, it could do the precise opposite of what was intended. Anyhow, it was our unity and wisdom that kept us in one piece.
Until, one day, everything changed. Since they could not conquer us by force, our enemies sent many agents with a mission to corrupt and divide us. That would fail too, but this time they were supported by a strange and insanely powerful dark force, like nothing we had seen before. The corruption spread like a cancer. Eventually, it completely divided us into two factions. One was ready to fight it despite the grim odds, while the other wanted to sign a pact with it and avoid total destruction for the price of losing independence/freedom. Civil war started, and, eventually, it all ended…with a catastrophic blast.
Weapons of mass destruction were activated. Our inner struggle made an opening for "them" to strike. Even though we were essentially immortal, their weapons were, for that technology, what nuclear devices are for humans today.
The moment I saw the blast, time slowed down and someone pulled me backwards: it was one of the high priests who preserved our most sacred secrets. He opened some sort of tunnel, made by rings of blinding golden light that pierced both space and matter. "This will lead you away from here. Go!"
At that moment, we were already (physically) dead. As souls, we saw an endless dark mass surrounding us. Embodied in it was a presence so terrifying that even the strongest of us couldn't bear to look at it. But even more terrifying was the sight of our people getting consumed by that thing. Only a few of us were fortunate enough to escape. Such a glorious civilization...lost forever. The feeling of grief cannot be described.
"It was too soon. We have failed..." the priest spoke again while entering the "tunnel". I followed him, but the "presence" started chasing us.
"I consume," it whispered to our minds. "Everything becomes a part of me, and so will you. Run, little ones, for soon there will be nowhere left to run. I shall become everything there is!"
Its form and face constantly changed, and some of its many faces were very familiar to us...
"Where does this lead?" I asked other survivors. Nobody knew except for the mysterious priest.
"To the other side, my friends. Soon you will see. You all survived for a reason."
However, the dark force managed to disrupt our path, sending half of us back. That disruption scattered us across the universe.
I came to my senses in a rather "dark" part of it. Ironically, while trying to escape, I came even closer to its center. But the "black presence" was not manifested there. Yet.
I suddenly felt a force pulling me. It was a black hole. I had always wondered what it would be like to enter one. At that moment I knew that if this swallowed me, it was game over. Fin. The end. With the last trace of my power, I managed to resist it.
After some wandering I found a planet with life. It looked…empty (from the soul's perspective). But, still, it could provide enough shelter/resources for my (partial) recovery. So I landed. A familiar melody woke me. It was my phone alarm.
We know much more than our consciousness reveals. Often, that information reveals itself through dreams, visions, ideas, and creative inspiration. In most religions, you need to somehow "call" God through prayer. But God is already calling you! All you need to do is to listen. Your mind is the church, the temple, the "holy" place. No benevolent God would support wasting resources on building grand temples with expensive interiors while a third of the world's population is starving and most are living in abject poverty.
The Coded Painting
In an earlier section of this website, we drew attention to the coded paintings of the Illuminatus Francois de Nome. His paintings can be viewed here:
"MA" provided us with his interpretation of King Asa of Juda Destroying the Idols.
"I think that, at the bottom left, it is Hiram Abiff, the builder of Solomon's Temple, being killed. I googled King Asa Destroying the Idols and I think I found a succinct and profound answer that is pretty clear:
"We need today an Asa to arise and, encouraged by the promises of God, to break in pieces the great creed idols of Christendom and to liberate the people from bondage to them. He should have the support of all the God-fearing people, as King Asa had. In proportion as the idols and their worship would cease, the repair of the true altar of God would progress, and many would rejoice to present their bodies living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God, in His service. Not by physical force, nor by cruelty, nor by literal axes, would these great creed idols be destroyed, but by the presentation of the Word of the living God. In proportion as the Bible comes to be rightly understood, the follies of the creeds and their unscripturalness will more and more be appreciated."
Do you think MA is right? Asa, Solomon's great grandson, was an upholder of the worship of the Devil (Yahweh) and therefore anathema to the Illuminati, but could he also be used as a symbol for the destruction of false gods (including Yahweh)? In other words, did the Illuminati choose Asa as a symbol because he was uncontroversial to orthodox believers (hence depictions of him would arouse no suspicions amongst the authorities), but the "heretics" would understand that, as a "destroyer of idols", he represented a call to action to eradicate all the mainstream, orthodox religions, all of which were ultimately under the control of the Demiurge?
One of the great difficulties of interpreting coded paintings for those on the outside is that the superficial meaning is often the precise opposite of the intended meaning. Only those with eyes to see and ears to hear will understand what is really being said. Few art historians have the vaguest idea of what they are looking at. Far too often, they are hoodwinked by the superficial meaning, and they are too frightened to admit that they are out of the loop regarding the coded meaning, because then their "expertise" would be deemed worthless. In other words, most of them are highly motivated to deny that any painting has any meaning beyond the obvious one. An astonishing number rubbished any esoteric interpretation of da Vinci's The Last Supper. If they hadn't then they would have been admitting that they had much less expertise about the true meaning of art than members of certain secret societies.
MA also said: "It appears that the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has profound similarities to the story of Solomon and his temple in that what ultimately led to the destruction of Israel was sin or imbalance, and Arthur too ultimately failed to grasp the mystical and maintain a profound balance.
Solomon in his wisdom had Hiram Abiff (Abraham) killed by the Juwes (666), who are in the middle of the painting, and to the left are Joachim and Boaz, the male and female principles of mercy and severity, taking the crown from Hiram Abiff (or Templars digging for the head of Christ). Great understanding is required to know that "severity" is necessary.
The destruction of false gods (idols) on the right of the painting is an act of "mercy" as it will save the people from being led astray (destruction/mercy represents the Kabbalah in a profoundly esoteric way).
The Juwes in the center of the painting are walking to the right, from severity to learning mercy, and what appears to be Christ carrying the cross is walking from "mercy" to the left where he will learn severity. This sort of balance is where we have the strongest chance of obtaining the true crown (Gnosis). All three characteristics (severity, wisdom and mercy) must be employed to gain the Holy Grail. Perhaps this time balance will be maintained with true gnosis, and the kingdom will be stable and man will break free. That's what it seems like to me.
Do you agree with MA, or do you interpret the painting differently?
MA also drew our attention to Gilad Atzmon's insightful and provocative review of the new Coen Brothers' movie A Serious Man:
MA says of Gilad Atzmon: "If he isn't a practitioner of the great work than he is a testament that inspiration from the higher self is ultimately possible outside of an initiatory organization, as you have stated to me before when speaking of Phillip K. Dick, even if he isn't on some level an adept. In some mystical sense I believe he has mobilized aspects of his true higher self. He is totally inspiring. I read all of his stuff religiously.
I think the same to an extent can be said about the Coen Brothers. They and Gilad are like King Asa Destroying the Idols. For the temple, or the house of God, truly lies within us rather than outside.
I was talking with my girlfriend and I postulated the idea that the encounter with the shadow self must take place before you can have a conception of your higher self and that the shadow would be monstrous and frightening, manifesting as your opposite, and to vanquish it, is to confront it head on. And through that experience you would perhaps know yourself in a full and comprehensive manner; alchemically, to become gold; platonically, to truly know yourself, and in other ways to obtain the Holy Grail.
My girlfriend thinks that the demiurge is ultimately an archetype that we can all manifest, and I am inclined to agree. I think that to know this profound understanding of mysticism and to intentionally use it to create idols for people to worship (and ultimately have people worship you) so that they are stuck in the world, constantly reincarnating, is a capacity we can all manifest, is it not?
Which is not to say that there aren't sinful (so to speak) people in this world who are the allegorical and literal practitioners of darkness rather than of light. In other words people who would like to never see people learn what they know mystically so as to manipulate them for their own amusement or logistical maintenance of power rather than create conditions so that the maximum amount of people may be able to eventually break their chains, which is something like a fundamentally jealous, or externally competitively oriented person would do, like the character Tom Cruise plays in Vanilla Sky.
I think someone who is fundamentally altruistic, and, especially one who resolves to maintain their altruism, won't be conquered by the winds of Moriah. But perhaps, like vanquishing your shadow, it's easier said than done. Like most things in life, having a conception of it will help one to capture its true essence. I think Democritus would agree.
I purchased a Taschen art book called Alchemy & Mysticism and started flipping the pages and came upon a section showing serpents, so I flipped a few more pages and I found a picture by Jacob Boehme called Theosophische Wercke and I was completely floored, and had this immediate feeling of comfort. The piece was fantastic, I had never seen it before, the all Seeing Eye. I felt that this represented a soul escaping the brilliant cycle of the material world, and the jealous demiurge shedding a tear, knowing there was nothing he could do about it.
I feel at this point, I can confidently describe myself as someone who has converted to the fundamental Gnostic viewpoint in a totally natural and self compelled way.
The Creative Mind
"RN" wrote to us and said:
Over the years, strange things have happened to me. I have been searching for an answer. So far I have not found it.
1) I have heard a voice in my head giving me help when I needed it.
2) Once I saw a birch tree light up in the most beautiful purple colour. Even the crow was just light.
3) Then a cylinder came into view floating in the air next to me. It was hollow.
4) Then a big cube appeared: 1 x 1x 1 m.
5) Some milky white round "thing " was floating over me while I was asleep. My daughter saw this.
6) All the objects were perfect in shape, as if a master of the trade cut them, and they were all milky white.
Also on another occasion, I was suddenly in the middle of this strange light, looking like the silver decorations on Christmas trees. It was moving in the air.
When I read through your webpage, I found a picture of a tetraktys and then I decided to get in touch. I have taken up writing children's stories with no violence in them. These stories I used to make up for my daughter as Good Night Stories. They are set in space so that my fantasies need have no limits.
I am sick and tired of all the lies that are told in every walk of life.
Are you able to answer, and tell me what those things meant? I have had accidents where under normal circumstances I should have been dead.
Once walking along the streets in London (Notting Hill), two young men came towards me and I met the eyes to one of them. As our eyes met, I felt I got a charge of at least 1000 volts in my solar plexus. I nearly fell to the ground. I had to find a ledge to sit on to recover. I have never forgotten his blue eyes. I have never before or after seen eyes like that. Who was he????
1) This is an example of the "Third Man" syndrome that we discussed in the article entitled The Right Brain God.
2-6) Similar objects have been described in various UFO reports: see, for example:
One person said, "On Monday morning, I saw a perfect cube appear right before my eyes! I was looking at Zubeneschamali, which is the beta star in Libra, when the cube just came out of nowhere! I saw a brilliant perfect cube with an illuminated border that was moving quickly. It changed color from blue to aqua-green and stopped cold."
Other cases have been described here:
We maintain an open mind with regard to reports of such phenomena, and we invite anyone else to contact us with their experiences. However, we suggest that the right hemisphere of the brain can be a crucial factor in interpreting many of these episodes. The right brain is associated with high-level musical, artistic and mathematical abilities. Anyone who is able to experience the Third Man syndrome is, we suggest, highly imaginative, intuitive and creative, and the right hemisphere of their brain is engaged more than is the case with average people. (In RN's case, this is possibly confirmed by the mention of the Good Night stories set in space and the idea of fantasies that have "no limits".) The mathematical precision of the geometrical objects is, we suggest, evidence that the superior mathematical powers of the right brain are being brought into play. One of the consequences of having a powerful right brain is that the imaginative faculty is so strong that it can lead to the individual living on the edge, so to speak, of a waking dream state where they can experience dream images that seem utterly real.
P.D. Ouspensky said, "Sleep and the waking state are not two states that succeed one another…They may be called sleep and sleep plus waking state. This means that when we awake, sleep does not disappear, but to the state of sleep there is added the waking state, which muffles the voices of dreams and makes dream images invisible." But what if, from time to time, maybe in times of high stress, this "muffling" that Ouspensky speaks of is ineffective and dreams succeed in piercing the "sleep plus waking state"? People with enhanced right brain activity are in far closer contact with their unconscious than average people and are able to unlock the dramatic power of the unconscious in amazing ways. Without knowing the details of RN's life, we can't say what "message" the unconscious might have been trying to communicate via the images of perfect mathematical objects, but there could be a profound message of a similar type to that discussed earlier by JS in his analysis of dreams.
RN's daughter, who may have inherited similar abilities to one or both of her parents, may have picked up, consciously or subconsciously, suggestions made by RN, causing her to have similar experiences.
Eidetic images may be involved. These are dream images that are so vividly experienced that an individual can continue to see and interact with them in the waking state. (This phenomenon is said to account for the "imaginary" friends that some children insist they have.) People who have so-called photographic memories are said to have an eidetic memory.
No one should underestimate how useful these enhanced right hemisphere abilities might be. As RN said, "I have had accidents where under normal circumstances I should have been dead." In other words, they can literally make the difference between life and death (so that genes that code for these abilities are more likely to prosper in the gene pool).
We certainly do not reject the idea that unusual phenomena may objectively appear to people in the "real" world, but we also ask people to consider the power of the inner mind and how it can project onto the "real" world and make something seem objectively real when, in fact, it is subjectively real.
Anyone who is interested in a scientific account of amazing mental phenomena should read Phantoms in the Brain by V. S. Ramachandran. He says, "To overstate the argument deliberately, perhaps we are hallucinating all the time and what we call perception is arrived at by simply determining what hallucination best conforms to the current sensory input." This is not dissimilar to what Ouspensky said.
On the whole, we advise people to adopt a skeptical and scientific approach to all phenomena that seem out of the ordinary, but also to maintain an open mind because there are unquestionably strange things going on all of the time, and some people may be (and almost certainly are) better attuned to them than others.
As for RN's other comment about the mysterious encounter in Notting Hill in London, we are highly intrigued by this because we believe that the individual with the blue eyes may have been a "Phoster". A Phoster is the equivalent of an Archon, but on the side of the True God rather than the Demiurge. Although most people would notice nothing out of the ordinary about a Phoster, highly intuitive, emotionally sensitive people often react in precisely the way described by RN.
We should emphasise that Archons and Phosters do not play a dramatic role in the workings of the world. They are mostly "observers" of human affairs who, now and again, take a more active role. (We will discuss these special human beings - and they are human even though some people might prefer to call them "angels" - at a later time. They are not supernatural beings, but have the capability to exhibit superhuman qualities i.e. they could be regarded as supermen and women, but are still recognisably human. V. S. Ramachandran said that it has been reported that approximately one third of Americans claim to have seen angels.)
Returning to these comments by RN:
Once I saw a birch tree light up in the most beautiful purple colour. Even the crow was just light. Also, on another occasion, I was suddenly in the middle of this strange light, looking like the silver decorations on Christmas trees. It was moving in the air.
Members of the Illuminati who have achieved a temporary higher state say similar things, particularly that the whole world seemed to light up and every object became translucent. The important point here is that it is their perception of the world that has temporarily changed, not the "objective" world as perceived by others.
We assert that many people can and do spontaneously attain higher states of perception for short times, especially when they are in extreme emotional states. Such changes in perception should be welcomed as a great insight into a deeper reality. No one should be alarmed by them. Quite the reverse.
Last night I experienced what I guess is the Light within me. I felt it fill me and then I willed it to spread out to light up everything. It had no effect on matter and instead I felt it enter the tree outside my room and find a similar spark there. I guess you can call me a Luciferian now. This experience (hopefully not a figment of my imagination) led me to understand what the Ancients meant when they said there was God inside all living things.
Our Comment: The experience you described is one of the states of mind we strive to reach in our ceremonies. You are fortunate indeed if you are sufficiently spiritual to achieve such states without any advanced preparation and assistance.
Anyways, my question is concerning the Abrahamic Religions. I personally do agree that no GOD would demand worship, however I think there is something missing. I think that when these people pray, they truly are praying to the Light. The actions of the people for the most part do not have any trace of the Demiurge. These are good people that want to help Humanity, just as Luciferians do. So, yes, their god (Satan) says to bow and serve, but the followers believe in the True God? Wouldn't Satan benefit from them being like him, against humanity etc? I see Imams and Popes trying to control, but the core principles of what the followers believe are the same as the Illuminati propose. Please explain, I don't understand this, and in fact what does make sense is the Vedic teaching that God is One, but people worship Him in many different ways.
Our Comment: Regarding your point about the Abrahamic religions and prayer, you are right and wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a person praying to God and celebrating God in their own way. It is the mass, organised element that is so sinister. When you see thousands upon thousands of men and women kneeling, bowing or prostrating themselves all at the same time, it is no longer an act of independent, personal devotion but of "group think", "group solidarity", "them and us". It leads to the idea that "we" are going to heaven and "they" (i.e. those who do not pray as we do) are going to hell.
The Vedic teaching is correct if its authentic meaning is that we can all find the Light in our own way. However, all Muslims believe that all non-Muslims are going to hell, all Christians that all non-Christians are going to hell, all Jews that they are God's "Chosen People". These Abrahamic religions certainly do not believe that it is acceptable for everyone to worship God in many different ways. There is only one way - their way - and if you do not conform then you are damned to hell. This is what is truly Satanic about these "worshippers". All the members of the Abrahamic religions believe that all Hindus and Buddhists, for example, are damned to hell. They might not openly admit it, but that is certainly what they believe.
You are a good person and you are trying to see the good in people - and you're right that many Abrahamic worshippers are not intrinsically evil. Nevertheless, they support systems of religious belief that are Satanic in their effects. Should a Muslim continue to be a Muslim in the light of the epidemic of horrific suicide bombings all across the globe? If there is only one God and we can all reach him in our own way then every Muslim can (and should) abandon Islam and turn to a more peaceful alternative. But they don't. And they won't. Because they believe that there is only their God (Allah), and their way of reaching him (via Mohammed and the Koran). It is impossible to regard these "exclusive" religions as anything other than Satanic.
The Illuminati's position is that any spiritual person is equipped to find God. They do not need to follow any particular religion or holy book. They can all approach God in their own, unique way, in the way that makes most sense to them. Illumination is a path to the light: it is designed to help people along that path, but no one needs to be a member of the Illuminati in order to achieve union with God.
In my search for truth (looking through Arthurian legends and reading up on Gnosticism as a start) I came across a book by Philip Gardiner called Gnosis: The Secret of Solomon's Temple Revealed. Through this book I have figured out what the Holy Grail is (or more like confirmed my assumptions), I understand what The Ark of the Covenant is (I hope) and I have become a follower of Illuminism.
An interesting part in the book actually made me drop it and just sit for two seconds: Philip Gardiner is an Illuminist. I caught on to the signs he has left in his work, about how a man contacted him as he was very far along the path to the light, and how he is in a secret society, which he leaves nameless. This man has led me to understand SO much; my dreams have been hectic after reading your material and his.
Also, I make it a point to sit for a few minutes each day and simply focus on the Spark within me. Whenever I am done "meditating", I feel as if this world is a dream. It is as if I am above this world, mentally, even though my body is here physically, is this a normal feeling?
I believe I was able to feel the way I did due to my past searches for Truth and a way out of this Earth (as a Hindu). I guess I have had some practice.
Also, if I may throw something in, Illumination is basically what I believed in before I became an atheist! I have read the Bible, Gita, and excerpts from the Koran, and they mostly don't add up, so I made my own way. I would argue with my girlfriend's pastor of the necessity of books! My view was: If there is a God who created me and all that I see WHY must I need a damn book to know of Him? There would/should be something IN ME that would already give me knowledge of His existence. Unfortunately I did not follow up on that and in pursuing the truth through science (I plan to major in Physics), I lost my belief. Thankfully I have regained it.
Our Comment: That's exactly right. You don't need a book and you don't need a preacher or holy man. Everyone carries "the book" (i.e. the knowledge of the divine) inside them, if they care to read it. And science is certainly not the enemy of the truth; rather it helps to illuminate it.
I have to say, it's damn hard to convince people of the Truth. Following the recommendations from The Movement, I am attempting to create a group, and have attracted a few people but none of them seem to be ready. How can I convince them to let go of their religions, and other ingrained beliefs? I have spoken to a few people about it already and they simply do not agree. Even people whom I would consider "rebels" don't. If you could offer some words of guidance I would greatly appreciate it.
Our Comment: You can't convince them. They have to discover it for themselves. However, if they're intelligent people, you might be able to get them involved by asking for their help. Tell them that you're intrigued by the idea of starting the world again from scratch, going right back to the beginning, to the Garden of Eden, so to speak. If humanity were starting over, what would it do differently? Clearly, the mainstream religions have failed to make this world a paradise (your friends couldn't possibly argue with that), so what went wrong? How could the mistakes be remedied? Ask them why they are so insistent that they are correct, and what are the religious elements they most cling to. Surely God would put the answer to the puzzle inside each and every person and give them the free will to choose to find it? Why would he write his message exclusively in Arabic (the Koran), or choose a special people (the Jews), or send his "son" to an obscure, marginal province under Roman occupation 2000 years ago to be crucified (Christianity)? Why would he make people's current lives dependent on previous lives via karma (as in Hinduism and Buddhism)? Why would he create illusion (the veil of Maya) or ignorance (Avidya)? Without challenging their beliefs, try to get them to help you create a new, "perfect" religion. If they see it as an intellectual challenge, they might take an interest, and, once they get involved, they'll hopefully start to ask themselves profound questions. Give it a try. It's certainly difficult, but that's all part of the challenge.
Also, I'm sure you know, but your site and Philip Gardiner's book are the only places where I can find the truth. I tried to YouTube "Illuminati" and these OWO bastards have twisted it in a menacing way. They already speak of the NWO (Bush senior and Gorbachev) and declare it is their idea. They know people think they are the Illuminati (and they are creating hate for the name thanks to devils like John Todd or whatever his name is). Can you tell me more about John Todd? He claims to have escaped the "Illuminati" (the OWO) he talks about child sacrifice in the Vatican or something, and he calls himself a Christian. I smell something fishy. I'm assuming they are wiring fear into the conspiracy-minded so that when the true Illuminati actually does come out (or tries to convince people) the public will stone them/you.
Our Comment: Yes, YouTube is full of propaganda about the Illuminati and the NWO. The Old World Order have done a fantastic job of creating misinformation and disinformation.
The Movement is all about creating a radical new liberation group that carries no baggage and can distance itself from all the nonsense and propaganda surrounding the Illuminati.
As for John Todd, he was never a member of the Illuminati and his story represents the ravings and attention-seeking of a deranged, evangelical Christian fantasist.
Read about him here:
This article says, "[He] claimed that the Ayn Rand book Atlas Shrugged was the Illuminati's blueprint for unleashing a planned Satanic takeover."
Anyone who has read this website will know that the Illuminati regard Atlas Shrugged as one of the most repellent books ever written, so how could it be our blueprint? It is the opposite of what we advocate, but all too often the opposite positions to the ones we hold are attributed to us by deranged Christians (who are absolutely right that we oppose everything they and their Satanic religion stand for).
Read their material and read ours and make up your own mind.
We despise Catholicism (along with all other Christian sects), but no reasonable person could possibly believe that the Pope conducts child sacrifices in the Vatican. The people who make such claims instantly destroy their credibility. They reveal themselves as hysterics, desperately trying to become the centre of attention. Ignore them. They are beneath contempt. Every now and again they make a sensible point, but by and large they are peddlers of arrant nonsense that mocks both them and the people who take them seriously.
They hate the Illuminati because the Illuminati hate Christianity. They are right that we are their enemies. We look forward to a New World Order where Christianity, the main religion of Satan, is just a memory of a nightmare that vanished long ago. Most members of the Old World Order are practising Christians, and most of the remainder are observant Jews. Ayn Rand, the high priestess of the Old World Order, was raised in a Jewish family. Never forget that Jesus Christ was Jewish and that Christians worship Yahweh, the Jewish God of the Old Testament (more accurately known as Satan). The Old World Order is the product of Christian Freemasonry and Jewish banking interests. Once we are free of the Demiurge's religions, we will be free of the Old World Order.
