Socrates: Biography of a Great Thinker

We recommend the Socratic Method for all discussions, interactions, conflict resolution, teaching, and processing emotional upsets, as it is a “mode of questioning that deeply probes the meaning, justification, or logical strength of a claim, position, or line of reasoning. Socratic Questioning can be carried out in a variety of ways and adapted to many levels of ability and understanding (CriticalThinking.org).” Socrates was one of the founders of Western Philosophy.

Jordan Peterson on the Channel 4 Controversy and Philosophy of “How to be in the World”

Jordan Peterson responds in full to the Channel 4 interview and its aftermath. He also elaborates on what we think are the five strongest points of his philosophy on “how to be in the world”, namely: The centrality of the archetypal hero’s myth The central role of the Logos during the hero’s narrative Making the right sacrifices when bargaining with the future Orienting yourself towards the highest possible good you […] Read more »

The Postmodern Deconstruction of the Star Wars Universe

In the original Star Wars trilogy, the light side of the Force puts forth a process oriented vision of peace, while the dark side puts forth an “ends justifies the means” vision of peace. However, in the new movie “The Last Jedi”, both the light and dark sides are conveying the same message to the audience, “be in the moment, and destroy the past” as their vision of peace, as […] Read more »

The Overt Attack on the Masculine Principle

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 »

Finding Meaning in our Magical Words

Words are the magic spells we use, based on the meanings we attribute to them, to speak into existence our experiences, and this can be observed the most in our self-talk, and how we speak to ourselves and those around us. Just look at the words that are homonyms to learn the secret behind our words, for we cast spells with our words when we spell them, and we perform […] Read more »

Satan, Lucifer, and the Jesus Archetypes of Ego Development

Satan is the archetype of the undeveloped ego gone wild, Lucifer is the archetype of the ego masquerading as an enlightened being, and Jesus is the archetype of the ego having been fully integrated into the overall Self, called “Selfhood”. We must remain mindful, as both Lucifer and Jesus look awfully similar when observed in a superficial manner, but they are very, very different at their core. The outward similarities […] Read more »

Is the future of Star Wars more Gray than simply Dark vs Light?

I think we need to start looking at the Gray Jedi in light of Nietzsche’s concept of the Übermensch, who is a being that has transcended traditional group morality of good and evil, and has a higher individualistic morality based on their experiences to form a holistic perspective of the workings of life. An Übermensch has the ability to conceptualize and process so many angles, layers, and aspects of any […] Read more »

How Mob Mentality Gets Worse Online

This is a great video that describes the psychology of the herd/mob.  Nietzsche went to great lengths about the matter, as well as many great psychologists, including Carl Jung, who detailed the need to individuate (psychologically differentiate) oneself from out of the herd/mob, in order to become a unique and whole individual. What Jung called “Selfhood”, is what we as gray mystics would term reaching the “Divine Union” and the “Alchemical […] Read more »

Money is a Symbol of our Creative Energy

Money is only a symbol of the amount of creative energy we choose to invest into any given experience and endeavor. The more value and worth we place on the endeavor, the more of our energy we will choose to invest. We only use money as symbol of our energetic commitment when we decide not to directly create the experience for ourselves. For example, I can choose to direct my […] Read more »

Do we Have Free Will, or is Free Will our Destination?

“Human’s are “determined” by nature (biology and generational patterns encoded into their DNA) and nurture (patterns that are conditioned into them as children by family and society) – they do not naturally possess, nor exercise, free will. Their biology and past / current environments determine their choices; they provide the reasons for their thoughts, feelings, and actions, and not their inner being or will. Humans have no real free will, […] Read more »

Are our Actions Cause, or Something Else?

Are you cause, or are you effect, in the material world? If you still think that your actions are what make a difference in the world, then you are still an effect, but if you have learned to integrate and neutralize your emotions, and have altered or are currently altering the core mind patterns responsible for your life, then you are well on the path to being cause. We do […] Read more »
