Like in the beginning of this video, with the clip of the interviewer calling fans toxic when fans are upset that their favorite characters and universes are disrespected by the show runners/shows, they are gaslighting fans for the “non-contradiction principle” found in philosophy. This principle is natural and therefore universal, because contradictions are not found in nature, so they are either an error in reasoning/understanding, or they are a lie. […] Read more »

The Assumption of a Pandemic
The most dangerous ideas in a society are not the ones being argued, but the ones that are assumed. ~C.S. Lewis In regards to our first worldwide “pandemic”, many are ASSUMING several very big things in their reasoning when they support the official authoritative narrative: the threat is real, and is caused by what they say it is caused by. if real and properly identified as the real cause, the […] Read more »
On Sovereignty | Deep Code Experiments: Episode 10
This is an excellent and thought provoking discussion. Jordan Hall’s three aspects of sovereignty are basically the first three of the Liberal Arts, also known as the Trivium; grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Grammar corresponds to knowledge, logic corresponds to understanding, and rhetoric corresponds to wisdom; knowledge asks what, where, when, and who questions, understanding asks why questions, and wisdom asks how questions. In this system, at least from what we’ve […] Read more »
Reason, Authority, & Natural Law
In this video I examine what it means to be an authority, both over others, and how it pertains to self-ownership and self-governance. I draw on concepts from John Locke’s “Second Treatise of Government”, and show how reason is what differentiates the governed and those who govern.

Raising Children without their Birth Gender?
Should children be allowed to choose their own gender when they get older, rather than just being who they are born as? This is in response to a new trend called “raising theybies”, where parents raise children without a gender until which time the children decide what they will be. It is a well known psychological fact that children are in an open state of hypnosis until the age of […] Read more »

Socratic Questioning vs Sophistry
There are two main ways to have a debate, one is to view it as a power struggle to be won, and the second is to see it as an opportunity to progress and grow. The sophists in ancient Greece would use “the tools of philosophy and rhetoric to entertain, impress, or persuade an audience to accept the speaker’s point of view,” as a means of winning an argumentative power […] Read more »
How to Discern if a Spiritual Teacher and/or Path is Worth Your Consideration
In a world filled with teachers, paths, and methodologies, it is important to learn how to filter out the wheat from the dross, as a means of maximizing the potential acolyte’s own evolution and self-development with the least amount of dead ends, drama, and false starts. As a result of our own experiences within the mystical arts, we have designed a checklist of questions meant to assist those acolytes aligned with […] Read more »
The Skull and Bones Metaphor
The skull and bones, also known as the Jolly Roger, is a metaphoric representation of a specific mindset devoid of our emotional core. The skull represents our intellect, aka the “what” and knowledge, while the bones represent action, aka the “how” and wisdom. However, the place where our heart should be, the location of our emotional center, is missing, as this represents the “why” and understanding. The typical human being […] Read more »
Does Modern Schooling Stunt our Ability to Think?
While learning knowledge is important, some forms of learning are more akin to conditioning, such as the traditional didactic means forced upon us in public schooling. Didactic learning stunts our thinking, by telling us what to believe rather than allowing us to discover our beliefs for ourselves, and then modify them when warranted. Because of this, the didactic transmission of knowledge actually hinders our ability to discover self-knowledge, understanding, self-worth, and […] Read more »
Why do we Experience Jealousy?
Jealous people may feel that they are justified in their jealous actions, or they may feel guilty for being jealous, but jealousy is always an effect of the inability to go deeper in a relationship. If a person is jealous sexually, it is only because they are unable to go deeper into their own sexuality, and thus unable to deepen with their partner(s). Emotional, spiritual, physical, and intellectual depth also […] Read more »
What is an Emotional Block?
What is an emotional / energetic block? Quite simply, it is a lack of understanding, which is connected to our emotions and logic. Our emotions, which serve as a type of logic / CPU in a computer, function as a bridge between our perceptions (input) and actions (output). Understanding (our unconscious mind / emotions / feelings) is the bridge between what we think (conscious mind) and what we do (subconscious […] Read more »
Should We Trust our Instincts?
I’ts not good enough to just trust our instincts, as they can be laced with our emotional attachments that are the result from past traumas and limiting patterns of relating. We must trust our process, and our ability to discern the truth through asking the correct questions at the right time. While our emotional attachments can deceive us, our feelings can act as messengers that point us to the truth […] Read more »
