Just as privacy and civil liberties experts warned, the temporary truce between Apple and FBI hasn’t diffused the U.S. government’s efforts to fight encryption.
“We are in this together,” the FBI told law enforcement agencies around the country on Friday, promising to help local police access locked phones or other devices as much as “legal and policy constraints” allow.
According to news outlets, the bureau has faced a deluge of requests for assistance since announcing on Monday that it did not need Apple’s help decrypting the iPhone belonging to one of the alleged San Bernardino shooters. The FBI has not said publicly how it hacked the phone, or who helped it do so.
In response to such demands, the FBI issued an advisory to state and local authorities that that the Wall Street Journal said “seems to be aimed at reassuring police and prosecutors that while they don’t have much to tell them now, they hope to provide more information and possibly help in the near future.”
CBS News obtained the open letter, which read in part: “We know that the absence of lawful, critical investigative tools due to the ‘Going Dark‘ problem is a substantial state and local law enforcement challenge that you face daily. As has been our longstanding policy, the FBI will of course consider any tool that might be helpful to our partners. Please know that we will continue to do everything we can to help you consistent with our legal and policy constraints. You have our commitment that we will maintain an open dialogue with you. We are in this together.”
According to the American Civil Liberties Union, there are at least 63 similar cases pending across the country. Earlier this week, as Common Dreamsreported, the bureau agreed to help Arkansas prosecutors break into an iPhone and iPod belonging to two murder suspects.
And the Wall Street Journalrevealed on Thursday that the FBI was in fact testing its still-undisclosed unlocking method on other iPhones, “to see how many other versions of the device it could open.”
Privacy and civil liberties advocates had argued that forcing Apple to decrypt the San Bernadino phone—and in turn spurring the inevitable development and dissemination of such a tool—”would necessarily place at risk the security of millions of other devices and the people who use them.”
In February, the ACLU’s Noa Yachot warned that “[p]utting this powerful tool into the hands of law enforcement agencies that have a history of biased policing will compound existing disparities.”
“We know that there are existing disparities in policing and warrant execution practices,” Yachot wrote at the time. “Increased government investigative powers will simply reflect — and likely exacerbate — these disparities. In other words, already overpoliced communities are likely to be the recipients of these new age search warrants, which provide concerning government access to our digital data.”
Big Pharma is spending like never before to make sure patients take their drugs. Investors recently committed $172 million for “smart pills” being developed jointly by Proteus Digital Health and Otsuka Pharmaceuticals. After a pill is swallowed, a microscopic device within the pill relays ‘health data’ to a patch worn by the patient, then to a smartphone, and then (if the patient wishes) to doctors and/or pharmaceutical companies.
Likewise, an inhaler for patients with lung diseases to record the date and time of every use is being developed by mobile chip giant Qualcomm with heavy investment from Novartis, which runs research and development in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Drug makers lose billions annually when patients don’t fill, refill, or take their prescriptions. So, besides developing smart pills and smart inhalers that tell whether meds have or haven’t been taken, Big Pharma is also finding other ways to ‘nag’ patients into taking every pill their doctors prescribe.
Danish drug maker Novo Nordisk works with HealthPrize to reward ‘drug-adherent’ patients with gift cards or charitable donations to their favorite 501(c)3. There are also smart phone apps that remind people to take their pills, talking engagements to teach people how to take their meds properly, and even payment programs to patients willing to tout drugs personally. Biogen, e.g., pays patients to talk about positive experiences with the company’s MS drug Tecfidera.
Big Pharma is lobbying the Feds for permission to pay pharmacists to encourage patients to take their pills – no conflict of interest there! Joel White, president of the Council for Affordable Health Coverage, an advocacy group that works with the industry, says that “we’re not pushing pills here, we’re pushing adherence.” But Matt Lamkin, Assistant Professor at the University of Tulsa College of Law who has studied the issue, recognizes a financial motive.
Lamkin says that Big Pharma is using medication adherence programs as marketing tools – but instead of saying they’re boosting drug sales, they reframe that goal as “drug adherence.”
Although failure to take prescribed drugs can cause worse health conditions and drive up medical spending in the US by nearly $300 billion each year, drug taking is a complex issue, with many drugs needlessly prescribed to begin with.
Some patients don’t have the money to fill their prescriptions. Others are finding other, better alternatives to prescribed drugs. Sometimes, prescriptions simply don’t work, are painful to take, or have side effects that are worse than the condition being treated. The doctors prescribing the drugs don’t know that the drugs are failing their purpose, nor do the patients.
The manufacturers know full well, but they’re not telling. It’s part of a modern medical scandal. In some cases, the placebo effect has been found to be more efficacious than a prescription. Eli Lilly recently spent $30 million to ‘re-brand’ a drug that wasn’t working as well as a placebo!
Tom Hubbard, vice president of policy research at the pharma-oriented Network for Excellence in Health Innovation, says that drug companies in the past weren’t as likely to have strong views about telling doctors which drugs to prescribe their patients. But these days, he says, the consideration is considerably greater. Well of course, with so many billions on the line.
Consider GlaxoSmithKline’s recent tactics. The London-based drug maker has enrolled 3,000 of its employees, retirees, and their relatives in North Carolina in a pilot program to “better coordinate their health care” (i.e., take their meds). GSK’s program uses sophisticated analytics to determine who’s not taking their medication. Those individuals can get one-on-one health counseling with a pharmacist or case manager, according to Matt Rousculp, a senior director of health outcomes research for GSK.
Industry giants like Merck, Pfizer, and Sanofi, along with the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, are backing a lobbying campaign to allow all manner of programs that would help push drugs on patients, from calling them directly, to using pharmacists as go-betweens.
Big Pharma will stop at nothing to make sure it keeps its power hold on the global economy. The worldwide market for pharmaceuticals topped $1 trillion in sales in 2014. The world’s 10 largest drug companies generated $429.4 billion of that revenue.
Five of the top 10 companies are headquartered in the US: Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Abbot Laboratories, Merck and Eli Lilly. Over 1,100 paid lobbyists make sure your government is doing this industry’s bidding as well.
(INTELLIHUB) — Although it’s now public knowledge that former Florida Sen. Bob Graham told the Tampa Bay Times that the secret 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission report are poised to be released within the next few months, one can only question what the White House’s new and urgent motive for their release is.
One thing comes to mind, right off the bat, and that is the fact that strong evidence exists suggesting that up to three thermonuclear devices were detonated at the World Trade Center site on 9/11, hence the nickname “Ground Zero.”
I mean, what better way than to dupe the people yet once again by slowly conditioning them, over an extended period of time, to accept the fact that criminal factions of their very own government orchestrated the Pearl Harbor-like attack onto skyscrapers, buildings, in an American city.
That’s right, when the not so secret 28 pages are actually released, in a few months, they will likely show Saudi involvement and government foreknowledge, like we already knew.
So tell us something we didn’t know; like the fact that a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Department of Energy, study found high trace levels of tritium inside the WTC complex after the attack. Not only were abnormal levels of tritium found inside the WTC complex, in the basement of “WTC 6” and the “storm sewer,” but they were also found in the water.
“Tritium is an important component in nuclear weapons. It is used to enhance the efficiency and yield of fission bombs and the fission stages of hydrogen bombs in a process known as “boosting” as well as in external neutron initiators for such weapons,” according Wikipedia; meaning that the only way it would be present in high trace levels is if a nuclear device (or three) detonated within proximity. Additionally it’s important to note that tritium is “extremely rare on Earth” and again — should not be found in at levels reported to be ’55 times higher than normal.’
And just to be clear, I am not saying that micro nukes were solely responsible for bringing down the towers — IMO micro-nukes were likely only used at the base of Towers 1 and 2 and possible the base of building 7, three in total, and were likely strategically placed 50 feet below street level, somewhere in the basements of the buildings or subway access tunnels. This would also explain numerous eyewitness reports of “large” explosions in the “basement” or “lobby” of the towers.
It has also been proven that Nano-thermite was used and was present in dust samples, less than 2 microns in diameter, that were taken from the WTC site after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks as pointed out early on by Richard Gage of the grassroots organization Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
Moreover there are also signs that advanced barometric bomb technology, which uses triggering devices derived from the U.S. Nuclear Weapons Program, was also deployed in the attack — technology which incorporates gaseous elements in a “yellowish, brownish combustible mixture” and uses Aluminum Silicate Red Oxide and other ingredients” that would have surrounded and permeated the air around key structural columns on all floors before being triggered by a “specific high-voltage pattern” which the element combination is responsive to.
One bomb specialist, who wanted to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, can be seen in the proceeding video, testifying to the existence of such technology and said:
“[The high-voltage pattern] produces sort of a stairway pattern in the molecular structure of the cloud. Part of that pattern is a hydro-dynamic power generator, energy source, permeating the cloud which is then energized with another energy source and then is detonated. This causes the cloud itself to explode in such a fashion that if the cloud is circulating around the pillar — then it crushes the pillar from all sides and turns that pillar literally to dust and leaves only the rebar behind. So if you’ve got this cloud permeating all the way around the first floor, wherever it is, anything within its path gets crushed, imploded, to dust instantaneously. And when that happens of course there is nothing left to hold up the upper floors above, so bang, they come down like a pancake.”
This also explains why an eyewitness by the name of Kenneth Summers, who was in the lobby of tower 2 at the time, actually saw such a gas-like substance mixing with the air just a “tenth of a second” before the witness was blown back out the lobby doors. Kenneth Summers told NBC what he saw just before being eject from the lobby by a massive explosion and stated:
“All of a sudden it seems like the whole lobby, the door I was in, filled up with a yellowish, brownish, combustible mixture. It didn’t really smell any different, but was so quick to happen, it was like a tenth of a second.”
Summers testimony starts at 5:08 into the following video:
Mr. Summers’s story is one of survival. It is also one of compassion. As Mr. Summers wandered aimlessly, bloodied and badly burned, hundreds of people fled past him in those confused and harrowing moments right after the attack. But one man, a stranger named Steve Newman, stopped and led Mr. Summers to help in New Jersey and stayed with him for an entire day until he was safely in the care of burn specialists.
”I spend a lot of time thinking about how you thank somebody like that,” Mr. Summers’s wife, Nadine, said of Mr. Newman. ”You can’t ever thank anybody enough for something like this. Words just can’t do it.”
Mr. Summers, a technical analyst for Empire Blue Cross, had taken the 5:22 a.m. train from Bay Shore into the city just like any workday that Tuesday and had been at his desk for more than an hour when he decided to go downstairs to mail a letter. It was just as he stepped outside that a plane crashed into the building.
To escape the falling debris, he turned around and was inside a revolving door when he noticed the lobby fill with a yellowish haze.
Keep in mind this very same technology was “used to take down a high-rise apartment building in downtown Beirut […] in 1984,” according to former Pyrotronics-Hercules bomb specialist Michael Riconosciuto, whom also identified the technology’s signature in the Oklahoma City Bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Building on April, 19, 1995.
Look, all I know is the actual impact from the alleged passenger planes did not cause the collapse of the WTC’s towers 1 and 2 that stood proud above the New York skyline, nor did the jet fuel fires or random fires burning throughout the buildings. In fact we can clearly see that this was not the case, because the tops of the buildings actually started to collapse first, dustifying themselves in mid-air as reported by Dr. Judy Wood who conducted an independent investigation.
Micro-nukes exist and have for a long time
According to Wikipedia:
The Special Atomic Demolition Munition (SADM) was a family of man-portable nuclear weapons fielded by the US military in the 1960s, but never used in actual combat. The US Army planned to use the weapons in Europe in the event of a Soviet invasion. US Army Engineers would use the weapon to irradiate, destroy, and deny key routes of communication through limited terrain such as the Fulda Gap. Troops were trained to parachute into Soviet occupied western Europe with the SADM and destroy power plants, bridges, and dams.
The project, which involved a small nuclear weapon, was designed to allow one person to parachute from any type of aircraft carrying the weapon package and place it in a harbor or other strategic location that could be accessed from the sea. Another parachutist without a weapon package would follow the first to provide support as needed.
The two-person team would place the weapon package in the target location, set the timer, and swim out into the ocean where they would be retrieved by a submarine or a high-speed surface water craft.
In the 1950s and 1960s, the United States developed several different types of lightweight nuclear devices. The main one was the W54, a cylinder 40 by 60 cm (about 16 by 24 inches) that weighed 68 kg (150 lbs). It was fired by a mechanical timer and had a variable yield equivalent to between 10 tons and 1 kiloton of TNT. The W54 nuclear device was used in the Davy Crockett Weapon System.
Now do I have your undivided attention?
On 9/11 there is no doubt that multiple bombs were detonated inside the WTC complex — this fact can not be disputed and is clearly documented in hundreds of videos and backed up by many eyewitness testimonies, including highly credible first responders and firefighters. In fact, seismic readings from that day indicate that at least 3 large man-made explosions, possibly nuclear by signature, took place underground inside the WTC complex. Could these be the actual blasts that took out the cores of buildings 1, 2 and 7? Is this what the U.S. government has been hiding all along?
Interestingly, previous tests have been conducted by factions of the U.S. government in which they used micro-nukes to demolish rather large buildings and the results were astonishing to say the least, almost a perfect mirror of the collapse of buildings 1, 2, and 7 that took place in Sept. of 2001.
The use of micro-nukes in the WTC complex on 9/11 – the smoking gun
It’s safe to say that high energy releases have a distinct look.
Dr. Ed Ward has documented what he believes is the use of micro-nukes on the World Trade Center complex attack that took place in September of 2001.
One of the smoking guns in this case is that over 5.3 billion pounds of steel was instantly turned into 2 billion pounds of dust, but that’s not all — massive steel beams were bent like pretzels as the towers collapsed.
One video shows the penthouse on building 7 being demolished on the roof just before the building comes down. This proves that a top-down demolition process was being utilized, otherwise the buildings might have just twisted and naturally would have just fell over themselves. But perhaps the most startling revelation that nuclear devices were used is the fact that vehicles that were found up to a half mile away from the WTC looked incinerated — not to mention the tens of thousands of tiny body parts that were found on the rooftops of neighboring buildings which is not indicative at all of a gravitational collapse.
The fact that many of the first responders are now dead, if not very sick, does not sound like the byproduct of a falling building, but rather sounds more like they got a massive dose of deadly radiation. Most of the responders have died of blood cancer and Thyroid cancer, consistent with heavy radiation exposure.
Other red flags include:
Cars not hit by falling debris yet totally destroyed far away from the towers
Molten metal was seen in and around the debris of the WTC for months, indicative of nuclear fission.
There is also the fact that the debris field was substantially low for the magnitude of buildings that were destroyed, thus signifying that most of the debris was incinerated upon the demo blast.
Massive craters under the WTC complex were formed, likely from the detonation of micro-nukes, as the rock was even melted smooth. Later after the site was fairly cleaned up and the craters were excavated, the city of New York Port Authority continued to wash down the cavities with hoses daily for years as traces of Tritium were found, signifying that radiation was present.
Additionally the fact that the WTC buildings were pulverized into a fine dust cannot be ignored. This is a tell-tale sign of a high energy release typical of a nuclear explosion. Eyewitness accounts and personal testimony indicate that people were thrown an entire city block from what was described as a warm wind just as the towers begin to collapse.
There were also multiple reports of “hanging skin” or “melted skin” on victims around ground zero. This was a common occurrence in the Hiroshima blast. Major hot spots were also reported in and around the debris at the World Trade Center complex and were prevalent for up to six months after the attacks. This type of activity, seen with the hot spots, is commonly referred to as “China Syndrome”, where nuclear material will continue to undergo fission for a period of time, generating massive heat plumes.
To no surprise, videos obtained via Freedom of Information ACT (FOIA) requests, captured on and after Sept. 11, 2001 near the WTC site, have had sections, clips, of the video and audio removed, especially during the beginning of the collapse of the towers. However, the explosions can be heard on many independent videos, now floating around the web and can all be accounted for.
Related: CIA insider says something was brought in to the buildings before attacks and also stated that the attacks “were imminent” and that she had foreknowledge of what she was told would be a “thermonuclear strike […] on the World Trade Center.”
“We know that the 15 hijackers who were Saudis, the alleged hijackers, because they were not on those planes – not one of the 19 hijackers, or any Arabs, were on any of the four planes, according to the passenger list, and according to all of the evidence that would be there if they were on the planes, but has not been produced,” Dr. Barrett said.
“So these 15 Saudi patsies, who were set up to take the blame for 9/11, were in fact CIA agents. We know this – I had this confirmed directly by a CIA source that these 15 Saudis entered, and repeatedly reentered on these supposedly – they call them employment visas, but there’s a special number for employment visas that are only given to CIA assets as a reward for their service to the Central Intelligence Agency, and this visa allows them to come to the US. Typically they’re paid for their work for the CIA in Saudi Arabia, and then they are given this special kind of visa which is disguised as an employment visa but it’s of particular type,” he stated.
“And all 15 of these guys had that visa. That shows that they were in fact Central Intelligence Agency agents. Some of them were living with FBI people in California. So these 15 Saudis were not working against the United States government, they were working for the United States government, and they were set up so that Saudi Arabia could be potentially blamed for the September 11 attacks, which were actually perpetrated by Israel and its American assets,” he pointed out.
“The purpose was to make sure that Saudi Arabia didn’t leave the American orbit, as the king had threatened in August of 2001. Similarly Pakistan was also set up. The ISI chief was tricked, ordered, or whatever into sending money to Muhammad Atta. And then that was broadcast in an Indian newspaper. Pakistan likewise was threatening to leave the American orbit in 2001,” he said.
“Now the Zionist dominated imperial apparatus here in the United States didn’t want nuclear Pakistan, and oil-rich Saudi Arabia to become independent countries. So, it used 9/11 to herd them back into the imperial orbit, among other things,” the scholar observed.

When scurrying down the rabbit hole on the pathless path one is inevitably confronted by an inter-dimensional race of beings, often of an insect-like reptilian nature, perched atop the pinnacle of power that constitutes the nucleus of the New World Order. The appellations attributed to these dark interstellar actors are myriad and run the gamut of everything from the Sumerian Anunnaki to the Sons of God. While there is a plethora of contemporary material available on the subject, it appears very little has been written on what these ancient “gods” actually are. Instead of adding to the convoluted nature of the subject with more conjecture, let’s try to pin down these phantasmagoric apparitions and put them within a contextual framework that sheds light on their true nature. For if we are to defeat our enemy we must truly understand that enemy.
Pieces of the Puzzle
From the ancient ruins and relics of the past, to the ecstatic, visionary experiences of shamans across all cultures and epochs, to the pre-historic paintings that grace the underground caverns of Pech Merle; to the mythologies of the world, the literature on fairies of medieval times, the practices of black magick by a certain Satanic cult, and even our modern-day documented accounts of the alien abduction experience, we seemingly find evidence of these agencies of the underworld everywhere. We even find their ephemeral, ethereal personages imbued within the sacred architecture of our nation’s capital along with numerous bas reliefs, statues, monuments, and fountains that are literally littered throughout the world. It’s almost as if these invisible entities are clandestinely announcing their presence behind the scenes while quietly charting the course of humanity.
When undertaking more than just a cursory examination of the aforementioned (as well as other subject fields) we uncover a whole slew of parallels and patterns which ultimately culminate in a cornucopia of commonality and continuity. In essence, what we discover (among other things) is that the so-called fairies, shamanic spirits, mythological gods, DMT entities, and aliens are all qualitatively equivalent; that they are not mutually exclusive separate phenomena but rather different forms or manifestations of the same recurring phenomena that has been transpiring since the dawn of recorded history. In addition, we find that the non-ordinary transcendental experience associated with these entities itself seems to be evolving.
Instead of diving head first into the more esoteric aspects of this ongoing intervention into the affairs of humanity, let’s gradually wade ourselves into the deep end of the waters by highlighting one of the main attributes of their modus operandi. This facet I’m referring to is the parasitic quality of their nature. More specifically, it is the demonstrable notion that they literally utilize our energetic emanations as a food source for purposes of their own survival and expansion. We see this peculiar operating principle in the great epic poems, including Homer and Virgil’s works, where the gods are routinely described as swooping over the savory smoke of sacrifice to lick up the scintillating effluvia, i.e. the food of the gods. Whether it is in the fields of mythology, magick, or shamanism- or in the milieu of a modern-day scientific setting, we consistently uncover this particularly pernicious aspect of their character, as can be gleaned from the selected quotes below:
“The gods did smell the savour, the gods did smell the savour sweet, the gods gathered like flies around the man making sacrifice.” – The Epic of Gilgamesh
“These Elementals live in the soul-realm of man as long as he lives, and grow strong and fat, for they live on his life-principle, and are fed by the substance of his thoughts.”- Franz Hartmann, M.D.s, Magic: White and Black
“They took over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, gallineros, the predators rear us in human coops, humaneros. Therefore, their food is always available to them.”- Carlos Castaneda, The Active Side of Infinity
“They are attracted to emotions. Animal fear is what attracts them the most; it releases the kind of energy that suits them.”- Carlos Castaneda, The Fire from Within
“They were interested in emotion…They feasted as they made love to me.”- Rick Strassman, M.D., quoting DMT volunteer speaking of insect-like, reptilian creatures in DMT The Spirit Molecule
When reading through the above quotes one can’t help be reminded of that now famous scene within the movie The Matrix when Morpheus initiates the unnerved neophyte into the desert of the real. With an appearance of sheer befuddlement and bewilderment Neo is told the following:
“The Matrix is a computer generated dream world built to keep us under control in order to change a human being into this (holding up a battery).”
While some may axiomatically recoil at the thought of living in an illusory, mentally projected world and being relegated to indentured servant status by a ruling Elite, whether machine-like or not, the truth is that the Matrix analogy fits quite nicely with our current day reality (see David Bohm’s, Wholeness and the Implicate Order). The only slight differential, as far as I can tell, is the fact we are our own slave masters as it is we who build and sustain our own prison cells. This highly regrettable state of affairs is deftly encapsulated in the following quote taken from the film My Conversation with Andre:
“I think that New York is the new model for the new concentration camp. Where the camp has been built by the inmates themselves and the inmates are the guards and they have this pride in this thing they built- they’ve built their own prison. And so they exist in a state of schizophrenia where they are both guards and prisoners and as a result they no longer have, having been lobotomized, the capacity to leave the prison they’ve made or to even see it as a prison.”
Now that we’ve briefly touched on the practical role these entities play within the Matrix-like construct we find ourselves operating within, we can now move towards the more arcane, mystical aspects of their existence.
Guardians of the Gate
Delving deeper into the occult oriented atmosphere that envelops these inter-dimensional creatures, we come to discover that they also play the mysterious part of guardians or gatekeepers. In this sense, they can properly be viewed as obstacles, nets, traps, or hurdles that need to be circumvented or surpassed if one seeks to actualize quintessence within. This idea runs through the whole of Buddhism, particularly the Mahayana school of thought, which is why it’s not surprising to see it pop up in the Tibetan Book of the Dead. There, in the instructions to the dead of the Bardo Todol, it is emphasized that both favorable and unfavorable gods are illusions that need to be overcome. This current of thought is also found in the field of Magick where the gods are characterized as the Dwellers of the Threshold who guard the garden of the paradise of the soul. We even stumble upon this symbolic rule in the practice of Yoga, as well as among many other spiritual disciplines. As Swami Vivekananda stated in his work Raja-Yoga:
“There are other dangers too: gods and other beings come to tempt the yogi. They do not want anyone to be perfectly free. They are jealous, just as we are, and even worse than us sometimes. They are very much afraid of losing their positions.”
As mentioned above, these “guardians” are guarding the gate to paradise. Question is – what exactly is that gate? Upon closer examination it turns out that the gate to paradise is no less than that well-known Mother Goddess of the universe that the ancient Egyptians termed Queen Isis. Both giver and taker, she is the womb from which the gods, man, animals, and every other form arose. In a nutshell, she is the feminine personification of space and time, among many other things; that bee that fructifies the soul. As Joseph Campbell, the great mythologist, so eloquently puts it in his work Creative Mythology:
“It is, however, by way of the Goddess Mother of the universe, whose womb is the apriority of space and time, that the one, there, becomes these many, here. It is she who is symbolized by the cross; as for instance, in the astrological-astronomical sign for earth. It is into and through her that the god-substance pours into this field of space and time in a continuous act of world-creative self giving; and through her, in return- her guidance and her teaching- that these many are led back, beyond her reign, to the light beyond dark from which all come.”
And what do you know, look what we find in the DMT experiments that were conducted by Dr. Rick Strassman:
“Yes. She had an elongated head. I guess the guardians were keeping me from seeing her… I know, but they do seem like something else. They seem like guardians, gatekeepers.”- Rick Strassman, M.D., DMT The Spirit Molecule
“A short while later, out of the background of shifting geometrical patterns, a beautiful Egyptian goddess appears. I see only her head and headdress clearly. She’s in full regalia.”
At this point some may be thinking, “So what? Those are hallucinations. Nothing real or of any value can be derived from a non-ordinary state of consciousness like that. For that’s just an aberrant, morbid anomaly of the mind.” The only problem with that line of thinking is little inconvenient facts like this:
“The paradox is that Rene Descartes’ Discourse on Method, the book that reformed the entire structure of Western knowledge and that provided the foundations for modern science, came to its author in three visionary dreams and a dream within a dream, which provided the key for interpreting the larger dream. What an irony it is that the entire edifice of rational, reductionist, positivist science, which today rejects “subjective knowledge”, was originally inspired by a revelation in a non-ordinary state of consciousness!”- Stanislav Grof, M.D., PH.D., The Holotropic Mind
Lastly, to wrap this section up, take a look at the below symbolism found in the Vatican that pops up over and over again:
Notice the gold dragons around the painting guarding the shell with a bee in the Center. The shell is obviously a well-known symbol for the goddess Venus who represents one of the many different variants of the Mother Goddess. The bee is another symbol of this goddess as she is also a Queen Bee.
In addition, compare and contrast the below images while reflecting on the Goddess’ role as Mother of the Gods and taking into consideration the following quote:
“Nature talks in signs and, to understand its language, one has to pay attention to similarities in form.”- Jeremy Narby, The Cosmic Serpent
The above picture is of the Bee Goddess on a Boeotian amphora circa 700 BC. The image below it is from a page in Graham Hancock’s work Supernatural in which he describes the entity as such:
“… alien face, gray in color, with a wide domed forehead and a narrow pointed chin- heart shaped, like the faces of the light beings I’d encountered a few days earlier. But this creature doesn’t look friendly. Its eyes are multi-segmented like those of a fly.”
Now that we’ve been given a glimpse into their role as guardians, let’s try to unveil them further in a manner that will shed additional light on this aspect of their functionality.
Parts of Ourselves
After much subterranean excavating, we are now closer to uncovering that diamond in the rough. In the end, after extensively comparing and contrasting many different subject fields, we come upon the discovery that it is mythology juxtaposed against the backdrop of psychology that gives us some of the deepest insights. When straying outside the organized dogmatic ecclesiastical orthodox domain of religion we uncover an idea that dovetails perfectly with what mythology and psychology yield. This is the notion that all the gods, demons, heavens and hells are located within man himself. Whether it is the Indian Tantric tradition, the teachings of the ancient Mystery Schools, Dante’s Divine Comedy, Schopenhauer’s philosophy of the world as Will and Idea, the religious texts of the Upanishads, the beliefs of the Ashaninca, or even the Bible where it is said in Luke 17:20-21 that the Kingdom of God is within you, we stumble upon this introspective apprehension of all mythic forms.
As Joseph Campbell conveyed in his work Creative Mythology:
“All the gods are within, within you, within the world.”
While this statement is helpful, it is still unfortunately too nebulous. So let’s turn to Jungian psychology and in doing so attempt to transform the abstract into the concrete. In this field, the gods and goddesses are viewed as archetypal forces, instincts, or contents of the unconscious mind. As Dr. Carl Jung relayed in the commentary to the Tibetan Book of the Dead:
“The world of gods and spirits is truly “nothing but” the collective unconscious inside of me. To turn this sentence round so that it reads: The collective unconscious is the world of gods and spirits outside me, no intellectual acrobatics are needed…..”
The above quote intimates that there is essentially no fundamental difference between the inner and the outer. This makes perfect sense within the context of fractal, non-local, holographic multi-verse which is ultimately a cognitive construction, a psychic projection, or mirror of our own thoughts (see Michael Talbot’s, The Holographic Universe. Viewing the gods within this paradigm allows us to synthesize the research of those who see these ancient entities as inwardly generated vs. those who perceive them as a component of a free-standing external reality outside of our frequency range.
So, we see that these gods are in essence personifications of parts, the functionaries or agents of one monolithic order; that they are all manifestations of the unconscious mind, that underlying moving tremendum, that Matrix of Life of which Queen Isis is the feminine personification. As Dr. Carl Jung wrote in Psychology and Alchemy:
“Just as the father represents collective consciousness, the traditional spirit, so the mother stands for the collective unconscious, the source of the water of life. (Cf. the maternal significance of the fons signatus, as an attribute of the Virgin Mary, etc.)”
As implied above, and upon closer inspection, it turns that out that all the gods and goddesses of Antiquity are really one Goddess. As the initiate Apuleius states in The Golden Ass:
“I come, Lucius, moved by your entreaties: I, mother of the universe, mistress of the elements, first-born of the ages, highest of the gods, queen of shades, first of those who dwell in heaven, representing in one shape all gods and goddesses. My will controls the shining heights of heaven, the health-giving sea-winds, and the mournful silences of hell;
the entire world worships my single godhead in a thousand shapes, with divers rites, and under many a different name… but both races of Ethiopians, those on whom the rising and those on whom the setting of the sun shines, and the Egyptians who excel in ancient learning, honour me with the worship which is truly mine and call me by my true name: Queen Isis.”
“We also know that it is dangerous to suppress it, because the unconscious is life and this life turns against us if suppressed, as happens in neurosis.”
As a result of this suppression of the instinctual roots of the unconscious, the world is now engulfed in the flames of psychosis as a psychic split has emerged within the collective consciousness of humanity. Thus our current impasse is a function of sheer insanity. This is a world in which we are all being paganized, brutalized, sexualized, and debased in what is this Nigredo phase of the Alchemical Great Work; a world in which we are literally being fed on by a Force. We hear it everyday. Incessant, relentless chatter about how our leaders (or rather misleaders) are completely mad and how everything around us is inverted, corrupted, and perverted. As Michael Ellner, the author of Hope is Realistic, writes:
“Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.”
As an interesting side note, look at how Dr. Jung medically defines the term “insanity”:
Hmm… Possession. Where have we heard that before? Oh yeah:
“It is from this process of “possession” by the reptilians and other low vibrational entities that we have the ancient tales, indeed modern ones too, of demons, devils and evil spirits taking over a human mind and body.”- David Icke, The Biggest Secret
“For thousands of years, humanity has been increasingly mind-possessed, failing to recognize the possessing entity as “not-self”.”- Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
“It’s more like being possessed… It’s like they have an agenda… It’s got such a distinct flavor, the reptilian being or beings that are present.” – Dr. Rick Strassman, M.D. quoting DMT volunteer in DMT The Spirit Molecule
Energy as Food – All of these living forces directly correspond with some animal desire, impulse, drive, affect, instinct, or innate passion. They sustain themselves on the very thing that gave them life in the first place: thought. Initially, they are ethereal but tend to grow stronger and stronger as the desire to which they correlate with is catered to. Eventually, if given enough sustenance, they take on a more tangible, material type of existence. As Eckhart Tolle remarked in his work A New Earth:
“All thought is energy and the pain-body is now feeding on the energy of your thoughts.”
Guardians of the Gate –Integrating the instincts of the unconscious mind is a prerequisite to completing the process of individuation according to Dr. Carl Jung. These faculties of mind need to be addressed before one can become complete or “Whole”. If they are not addressed, or even worse suppressed, they tend to act as barriers preventing the would-be adept from actualizing his true Self.
Therianthropes/Shapeshifters – Aliens oftentimes appear in either pure animal or therianthropic (animal/human hybrid) form before transforming into the more familiar identity associated with contemporary pop-culture. According to John Mack, David Jacobs, and other researchers, this type of phenomena is not the exception but rather falls more on the side of the rule. This makes perfect sense given that the gods are psychic projections that mirror deeply embedded instinctual aspects of our character. Again, quoting from Dr. Franz Hartmann in Magic: White and Black:
“They form the dreaded Dwellers of the Threshold… They are described as having the form of snakes and tigers, hogs, insatiable wolves, etc., but as they are often the result of a mixture of human and animal elements, they do not merely exhibit purely animal forms; but they frequently look like animals with human heads or like men with animal members; they appear under endless varieties of shapes, because there is an endless variety of correlations and mixtures of lust, avarice, greed, sensual love, ambition, cowardice, fear, terror, hate, pride, vanity, self-conceit, stupidity, voluptuousness, selfishness, jealousy, envy, arrogance, hypocrisy, cunning, sophistry, imbecility, superstition, etc., etc.”
Paradoxical Nature – We see this contradictory aspect of their manifold nature in many ways. For example, take notice of their ambiguous sexuality and the fact that some of them appear benevolent while others seem to be more nefarious and malevolent (painful medical procedures and experiments associated with alien abduction). While there is much to be said about the latter, for now we will simply note that the crux of this can be explained by the nature of the unconscious itself. For within that realm everything is mixed together – both “good” and “bad”.
Hive-like Mentality – Given that the gods have been properly identified as the instincts/affects it’s no wonder that they oftentimes act in such a drone-like mechanical fashion. Notice too how the Occult Elite (an extension of these creatures) consistently stresses conformity, the standardization of all thought, collectivism, a left-brain masculine oriented outlook, and have in essence turned modernity into a industrious hailstorm of haste where everyone is always busy as a bee.
Warring of the Gods – This belligerent aspect of their character can be seen running rampant throughout the whole of world mythology. The idea of the gods as the real movers and shakers behind the scenes facilitating a state of perpetual warfare is brilliantly illuminated in Homer’s The Iliad. The message is clear: the history of world affairs is the history of the psyche itself. From a psychological standpoint this makes sense as the instincts are always trying to tyrannize over each other. As Nietzsche noted in The Will to Power:
“Every drive is a kind of lust to rule; each one has its perspective that it would like to compel all the other drives to accept as a norm.”
The gods overseeing the battlefield – Romeyn de Hooghe, De Belegringh van Groeningen (c. 1672) Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Portals to the Underworld – When reviewing various ethnographic and anthropological records one is constantly introduced to the proposition of caves, the sea, the underground, tunnels, etc., being portals to the underworld. According to Mircea Eliade in Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy, caves are “concrete symbols of passage into another world, or a descent to the underworld”. This sentiment coincides nicely with the definition Dr. Jung puts forth in his work Psychology and Alchemy where he states:
“The cave represents the seclusion and darkness of the unconscious.”
What is important to understand here is that up is really down; that one must descend into the darkness in order to achieve spiritual transfiguration. For how could one hope to process, transform, and ultimately integrate the instincts if they are not confronted on their own turf? This mystical axiom of Alchemy that one must descend or die to oneself before being reborn is elucidated upon at length in the novel The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann. Quoting again from Dr. Jung in Psychology and Alchemy we discover the following:
“The purpose of the descent as universally exemplified in the myth of the hero is to show that only in the region of danger (watery abyss, cavern, forest, island, castle, etc.) can one find the “treasure hard to attain” (jewel, virgin, life-potion, victory over death).”
Bohemian Grove – The reader will recall from earlier that the gods are often disguised in the form of animals or therianthropes. But even more intriguing than this is the animal form they so often choose: the owl, as noted in John Mack’s Passport to the Cosmos. It is well established that the owl has always been associated with the Goddess (wisdom and the black arts) as the gods have always been considered the protectors, guardians, or agents of the same. And so, could it be anymore clear as to what Bohemian Grove is really about? Ultimately, the point of the Occult Elite making sacrifice to the gods is one of a mutually beneficial relationship, as noted in H.P. Lovecraft’s The Shadow over Innsmouth.
What is the Devil?
Finally, after all of our deep-sea diving and subterranean mining, we have come to the bare root of the so-called reptilians. Here it is important to understand that the gods that are ruling our world today are mostly demons that have boomeranged back on us as a result of the suppression of the unconscious mind. You could look at it as the instincts of decadence and debauchery lording as master over the instincts of life. And just as the gods are all manifestations of one thing (unconscious) so too are the demons. As to the latter, that one thing just so happens to be the devil.
Now, the 64 trillion dollar question: What is this Poseidon-Pluto-Hades-Neptune-Shiva that is exactly the devil in Christian mythology? Who is this dragon the Buddha slew under the Bodhi Tree and appears as the Adversary in the Book of Revelations? What are we to make of this Great Magician of Aleister Crowley; this negative side of the astral light as outlined by Eliphas Levi; this lead that drives the alchemist mad and complicates the Work? In a footnote buried like a needle in a haystack within Jung’s Alchemical Studies we find one of the most accurate definitions of this Leviathan:
“The devil is the Saturnine form of the anima mundi.”
What Dr. Jung is referring to here is the chaos, massa confusa, prima materia or undifferentiated primitive instinctual animalistic dark aspect of the unconscious mind. This arcane substance (Mercurius), which is the basis of the Work, contains everything that is needed. It is fully autonomous being like the dragon that begets, reproduces, slays, and devours itself. As Democritus is reputed to have said:
“Nature rejoices in nature, nature conquers nature, nature rules over nature.”
It is important to note that the Stone issues or is born from the darkness of this prima materia (order out of chaos). For does not Spring issue from Winter? Is not enlightenment lighting up that which is dark? And this is why the alchemists said such seemingly blasphemous things such as “God’s love burns in hell”. Or why the adept Apuleius wrote the following in The Golden Ass:
“At midnight I saw the sun shining as if it were noon.”
But this prima materia is just one aspect of Mercurius; the other being the Self. For Mercurius stands at the beginning and end of the Great Work. As prima materia he is in his lowest form (dragon) and as the Lapis Philosophorum (rose, phoenix, lapis, stone, treasure hard to attain, etc.) he reaches his height. It is his transformation that brings about the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz. For as the Rosarium Philosophorum states:
“The opus proceeds from the one and leads back to the one.”
Ultimately, the dragon, which it should be noted is synonymous with the Serpent in the Garden of Eden, is a dual force underlying all of life (just like the unconscious). It is that androgynous paradoxical cosmic serpent that dogmatic religion cut in half. Within this context, a myriad of different variables are de-mystified. For example, why Kali (another variation of the Goddess) is characterized as the “water that kills and vivifies”; why the number 666 has a positive connotation in some cultures and a negative overtone in others; why the dragon/serpent is at once vilified and revered; why Lucifer (the morning star) means both Christ and the devil; and why the shamans the world over consider the life force tremendum of the world – that web of power that underlies the universe – to be a dualistic force that can be used for good (attainment of the Ultimate) or evil (black magick/sorcery).
In the end, as long as we maintain this patently absurd posture of over-emphasizing conscious life at the expense of the unconscious, Lilith (another name for the prima material/screech owl) – that flaming sword in the Garden of Eden – that shamanistic anima that is both dangerous and has transformative power – will continue to block the way back (which is really forward). Ultimately, the base instinctual aspects of the unconscious mind will have to be confronted/processed/integrated if we are to address this psychic split within man.

Integration as the Way Out
We are never going to integrate that which we demonize and vilify. This fact highlights the crux of our current conundrum. It is what created the situation of opposed opposites in the first place. It is what led to this psychic split in man that is the source of our collective insanity. Casting these gods out has now made us feel like we need to cast them out. For it was us who threw open the gates of the psychic underworld and unleashed the hordes of hellions; us who invited the Vampire in. As Paracelsus wrote in De Ente Spirituali:
“A healthy mind is a castle that cannot be invaded without the will of its master; but if they (Larvae) are allowed to enter, they excite the passions of men and women, they create cravings in them, they produce bad thoughts which act injuriously on the brain; they sharpen the animal intellect and suffocate the moral sense.”
The key phrase in the above is “sharpen the animal intellect and suffocate the moral sense”. Does this sentiment not perfectly encapsulate our modern day sex (Venus) and death (Saturn) soaked cannibalistic pop-culture? If so, why the emphasis on sex and death? The reason is because sex and death act as the two main underlying correlates of temporality. These two elements directly correspond with the two mainsprings of delusion that modern psychology recognizes as eros (desire) and thanatos (aggression).
It is these two chief motivations and underpinnings of life that attach us to our Matrix-like construct and keep the curtain of Maya from falling. In short, it is an effective way to clip our wings and keep us grounded.
While we may wish to run away from our fears we simply cannot. For life is the labyrinth; life is the Lodge. As such, we only meet ourselves along the way. In a holographic universe where every part is the whole suppression, indifference, and an us vs. them mentality fractures, demarcates, delineates, and fragments the world. This acts to distance us from our true Self by playing into the hands of an uproarious underworld that is currently in possession of the human race. As Geoff Byrd puts it:
“The power vacuum was created by us. It is our own inability to face our own personal demons and heal our psychological trauma that allows this to happen.”
In order to integrate the parts of ourselves that we’ve denied we must come to terms with and understand that which we repressed. It is an established fact of psychotherapy that through understanding and experience of underlying contents we can free ourselves from compulsion. In doing so, we facilitate the integration of the instincts which is a pre-requisite to completing the process of Individuation. Note that alchemy is a psychic projection of this process in symbolic form. And that both alchemy and Jungian Individuation are identical to shamanic initiation.
In the end, our goal is to turn a dragon into a rose; to square the circle; to consciously collaborate with the unconscious process of Individuation and thereby bring about a transforming of the unconscious that results in the actualization of a unified Whole. You could call this “Wholeness” Spirit although to be clear there is no pure spirit. For the Great Alchemical Work is a union of heaven and hell on earth. Not abandoning the body, not annihilating the instincts, not denying life itself but rather transfiguring or spiritualizing the instincts and life itself. At any rate, Spirit is at once spiritual and corporeal. As Nietzsche noted in The Antichrist:
“The “pure spirit” is a pure stupidity.”
In the final analysis, we can become zombified machine-like beasts enslaved under a scientific dictatorship totality devoid of any humanity or we can transform that diabolical character living in Saturn into a psychopomp that illuminates the way and allows us to become living philosophical stones. The stakes are in the stratosphere. So let us choose wisely.
