Reason & Free Will

True free will occurs when reason shapes our identity and worldview, and we play within the safe confines of its rules, while the illusion of free will occurs when our identity and worldview dictates our reasoning, and we play outside the safe confines of logic. In the illusion of free will, we get to make up the rules of logic as we go, and we don’t have to feel enslaved […] Read more »

Dennis Prager: Why Socialism Makes People Selfish

Dennis Prager talks at the University of Wyoming about why socialism makes people selfish, as well as about the labels and attacks that are directed towards moral people in the name of so-called “social justice”.  I particularly liked this quote from the presentation, as it lines up with Gnostic metaphors about Jesus being the personification of the Divine “Logos”, which is Greek for “reason” and “logic”: “I believe reason alone […] Read more »

There is an overt and centralized agenda that has gone into full swing the past decade, where before it was much more subtle, recently it has become quite overt. The feminization of boys and men has taken its toll on the West, like with how BPA’s, soy proteins, and the Atrazine pesticides are confusing male hormones, how third wave feminism attacks men in a myriad of ways, the continual harping […] Read more »

The Attack on the Eyes of Horus

Why does Hollywood, the music industry, the media, government figures, etc, all use the one eye symbol in photos, especially the “666 ok” symbol over their eye? This is because they’re mocking Horus, who lost his LEFT eye to his uncle Seth (Set) in battle. “The Right Eye of Horus represents concrete factual information controlled by the left brain. It deals with words, letters, and numbers and those things which […] Read more »

Our Thoughts on Channeling, and the Need for Discernment

We see imposter channeling ALL the time. If people do not have discernment when speaking to others in this realm, they will not have discernment in who they speak with in other realms. Fortunately, as we refine our discernment here, our discernment also improves there. Many people value having their ears tickled with clever deceptions more than they value the truth, as truth can be quite destructive at times. Thus, […] Read more »

As Above So Below – Symbolism What Does it Mean?

Excellent video and logic.  I’ve been seeing this very same thing where people automatically ascribe “evil” to a hermetic principle because Satanists use it, which is logic of the worst kind, for the same reason that a Satanist using a hammer or pencil will never make a hammer or pencil evil. In information technology there is a concept known as “Data Mapping”, which is where the variables in one table are […] Read more »

Objectivity, Boundaries, Influence, and the Prime Directive

It is not fair minded nor objective to lower our standards of thinking to engage with those who are prone to closed mindedness, or are in the midst of an emotional bias causing them to engage us with motivated reasoning. Meaning, we do not need to dialogue with, nor consider, closed minded, biased, one dimensional, irrational, and judgmental perspectives in order to remain fair minded and objective. Engaging with the […] Read more »
