In The Midst of Battle – Clifton Fitzgerald Hicks

I am subscribed to the YouTube channel of Clifton Hicks, as I enjoy his passion and heart that he puts into his music.  I particularly enjoyed watching this short documentary on his time in the US Military, where he refined his ability to play for his comrades, and also learned a little something about morality.  Great story, great music.

Nietzsche and Truth: Skepticism and the Free Spirit

Aline and I are free spirits who have taken Nietzsche’s “experimentalism” and used it to challenge our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to an extreme degree. Much of our insights and growth has come through experimenting with new ideas, while challenging our older ideas—older ideas which stem from past traumas, societal norms, biological factors, and childhood experiences. Being able to continually challenge and work through our old beliefs while remaining flexible […] 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 »

Voluntaryism & the Non-Aggression Principle – EFT w Nathan Martin

In this video, I give a brief description of Voluntaryism and its foundational principle, the Non-Aggression Principle, and how it relates to how we give and receive. When we are young, we learn that giving is mostly coercive, either from our family, school, or society, thus we do not have a point of reference or personal understanding of what giving without some form of subtle coercion is. I then perform […] Read more »

The Problem with Equity (Equality of Outcome)

Here is the paradox of equity: the state must treat individuals unequally in order to enforce equality of outcome. However, with equality of opportunity, each individual is granted an equal opportunity to pursue their own unequal outcomes. Historically speaking, equal opportunity results in the liberty of the individual, while equal outcomes results in tyranny, genocide, and the enslavement of the individual. Yes, the State must use force to ensure the […] Read more »

Carl Jung and The Achievement of Personality

In this video we examine a chapter from Carl Jung’s Collected Works in which he investigates the achievement of personality, describing it as: “the prototype of the only meaningful life, that is, of a life that strives for the individual realization of its own law.” ~Academy of Ideas How to Support the Academy of Ideas: Patreon: PayPal: Carl Jung and The Shadow: Amazon Affiliate Link: Read more »

What is Shadow Work?

Some people think that shadow work is screaming into a pillow, or allowing full expression of their emotions, but this is a gross oversimplification of the role of emotions, and of the nature of shadow work. Our emotions are the messengers that communicate the current state of our alignment between our thoughts and our inner being (Source), and they provide us with detailed information, much like we would receive from […] Read more »

The Power of Influence

We are always influencing our environment, but are we empowering those around us, or are we enabling and/or shaming them, with our influence?  When we negatively influence our environment, we will usually take actions that fight and control that which we already influenced, as an attempt to make it better — this is the essence of resistance — as we’re swimming against the flow that we initiated.  The conflict between our […] Read more »

Michael Tsarion: Duality or Wholeness?

 Michael Tsarion goes into our original fragmentation, and how fragmentation is used against us, and why it is so important to reclaim our many disparate fragments, and put them back together again. Recorded on Open Your Mind Radio with Alan & Steve. Recorded on March 20th, 2011. Read more »

Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey Featuring Carl Jung & the Mythology of Star Wars

George Lucas and Star Wars was inspired by Joseph Campbell’s work “the Hero’s Journey”, while Joseph Campbell was inspired by Carl Jung’s psychological models. Carl Jung developed what we know as shadow work, which integrates the darkness and light into one within an individual. George Lucas was therefore in the mystical lineage of the man who pioneered the Gray Mystic’s (Jedi’s) path to emotional wholeness, balance, and mastery. Campbell’s ideas […] Read more »

Carl Jung on Anima Projection

Excerpt from Man & His Symbols (Audiobook) by Carl G. Jung on the negative aspect of the anima in the male psyche. The anima and animus, in Carl Jung’s school of analytical psychology, are the two primary anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind, as opposed to both the theriomorphic and inferior-function of the shadow archetypes, as well as the abstract symbol sets that formulate the archetype of the Self. The […] Read more »

Jungian Psychology – The Shadow – Carl Jung

This is a video about the shadow layer of the personality in Jungian Analytical Psychology. The shadow is the conglomeration of all of our disowned traits, that function autonomously within our personality and manifest as various issues and neuroses. In order to heal ourselves, we must learn to reintegrate the traits that we have relegated to the shadow so that we can become whole again. Wholeness is more important than […] Read more »

Can Nanobots Be Removed?

This is an excellent article by Wes Penre called Can Nonobots Be Removed, and his eBook Synthetic Super Intelligence and the Transmutation of Humankind—A Roadmap to the Singularity and Beyond is also well researched, however, I differ with him in his approach to stopping this agenda.  Merely rescinding our conscious consent is not enough, as we must also rescind our unconscious and subconscious consent. The AIF, Controllers, and Minions understand the First Hermetic […] Read more »
