Solve et Coagula - The Great Work of the Real Magician

jcollinsCultural, Esoteric, Geopolitical, Premium POM

Attempting to manipulate and control the material world directly is counter-intuitive to the nature of how that world functions.  Being that all matter is manifested from thought it would be instrumental for the real magician to focus attention and efforts upon the world of thought, as thought is where the material world can be manipulated before the act of manifestation itself. Doubt it not, this is the true nature of our world and those who understand this dynamic have targeted the core subconscious of the human race.

Even as these words manifest from within my mind through the keyboard and forever into the digital world which is incrementally tightening its embrace around us, you are being drawn further into the world I have created for us.  Through the manipulation of letters and words, I am spelling out a magical spell which causes the transmutation of thought within each who reads the incantation.  This is the truth which can be revealed and understood by those with the open mind of the mage and adept.

Matter is simple clay waiting for the direction of thought to form and mold its characteristics while devising its purpose.  Weave the world from a billion minds.  The more minds, the more manipulation of the material world which can be achieved.  Overpopulation is a gift to the magician who truly understands this power.

Converging Communities in a Dickens Narrative

jcollinsCultural, Esoteric, FREEPOM9 Comments

Throughout 2018 the Philosophy of Metrics (POM) Community evolved and became something which can exist with or without me.  This ragtag group of random individuals began coming together back in January of 2014. At first, everything was focused around the articles I would write as the group bantered about the subject material and started introducing their own research and supporting evidence.

Since then it feels like the POM Community has surpassed the limitations of one person and has broken free to become a truly independent and powerful source of shared wisdom and shared experiences of self-reflection and evolution.  POM will have to continue long after I’m gone because the seeds we have planted together have only just begun to take root.  It’s the understanding of where we have been, where we are now, and where we will be tomorrow.  Our very own Dickens tale set in an online Victorian technological and philosophical era of anonymous suffering and loneliness.

Another milestone in 2018 was the growth of the XRP Community.  The digital asset XRP is on a course to greatness and there appears to be little that can stop it at this point.  Those that have been following the events throughout the year understand what I am referencing.  The light bulb cannot be uninvented. This community was very welcoming to me and my abstract and sometimes challenging interpretation of XRP and the Ripple strategy, which is building software solutions upon the XRP ledger.

A King and a Beggar Play Chess Together

jcollinsEconomics, Esoteric, Premium POM

Beggars want to be kings and kings want to be greater kings. Each of us seeks out XRP knowledge and riches for our own reasons. Some are enthralled by the process of development and implementation more than price.  Others are strictly focused on upward price movement and untold riches. There are many who populate the temporary wastelands in between.   We roam about wondering "when moon" and follow those who proclaim to know something which the profane do not.  Those who make such claims are indeed the profane amongst us, for the accumulation of knowledge and wisdom are two different things.  Wisdom is the key to managing knowledge.  Do you see profane Man?  The king and the beggar are one and the same.

Ancient Cryptography and the Pattern of Human Religious Archetypes and Pagan Psychology

JC Collins

“It is the opinion of the learned that whenever the ancient sages, whom in the Greek language we call Philosophers, discovered any secret of art or nature, they concealed it through various modes and figures lest the knowledge of it should fall into the hands of the wicked.”

The above quote is from the opening paragraph of Steganographia by Johannes Trithemius.  This book is considered one of the great occult works on pagan spiritualism and demonology ever written.  Published in 1606, and based on the ancient writings of King Solomon, it would go on to inspire other occult interpretations and translations of those same ancient texts.  But Steganographia, and all the occult works which came after may be about much more than mere evil spirits and demons.

Wikipedia states:

“Trithemius' most famous work, Steganographia (written c. 1499; published Frankfurt, 1606), was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1609[1] and removed in 1900.[2] This book is in three volumes, and appears to be about magic—specifically, about using spirits to communicate over long distances. However, since the publication of a decryption key to the first two volumes in 1606, they have been known to be actually concerned with cryptography and steganography. Until recently, the third volume was widely still believed to be solely about magic, but the "magical" formulae have now been shown to be covertexts for yet more cryptographic content.”

The relationship between occultism, steganography, and cryptography is a massive subject which could fill volumes.  The relevance which is the focus of this piece is built around the concept that “spirits” could be used to communicate over long distances.  These communications were secured with a “key” to ensure the “transactions” were processed by the intended receiver.

Spiritual Chess and the Law of Lives

Esoteric, FREEPOM6 Comments

Can you see?  Do you feel the great expansive board of existence which you have been a part of for so long?  Look past the moments of entering and exiting each life.  Look past the moments of birth and death.  See the board and all the lives moving upon its surface.  Light waging war against the dark, and dark waging war against the light.  Where are you in all of this?  You, the weary traveler upon the endless journey outside of the constraints of time.  I love you for the hardships you have suffered.

Magnetic and Electric Fluids in Equilibrium

Esoteric, Premium POM4 Comments

The most obvious characteristic of the androgynous Baphomet symbol is that the male and female energies are not balanced or in equilibrium.  The sun side of the symbol represents the male forces while the moon side represents the female forces.  The hand and arm on the sun side are pointing up while the hand and arm on the moon side are pointing down.

Visualize each as a plus and minus of the male and female forces, or fluids.  As such, the Baphomet symbol can be interpreted as representing an imbalance in the material world between the male and female energies.  This imbalance prevents the true spiritual androgynous being from evolving out of the merging of the male and female fluids and ascending as one spiritual being made out of two.

The Small God of Grandiose Gardens

Esoteric, Uncategorized

The garden started as a moment.  A mere shudder as I rained upon the world.

At first, it was small and barren.  Before long little stems of growth were heard, observed, smelled, felt, and tasted.  The garden absorbed all experience and used it as food.

Back then I found the garden intimidating and overwhelming.  Its fast growth and expanding borders confused me.  Hidden refuges provided shelter from the thunder and wind which would sometimes rattle the foundations of the garden.

The Invisible Empire

Cultural, Esoteric, Premium POM

Some other power, some third class of individuals aside from the leaders and the scholars must exist, and this third class must have the task of thwarting mistakes, and nipping the causes of potential disturbances in the bud. There must be a body of men whose task it is to throw out the rotten apples as soon as the first spots of decay appear. A body of this nature must exist undercover. It must either be a power unto itself or be given the broadest discretionary powers by the highest authorities.”

From a 1945 report titled The World after the War: OSS-SOE, The Invisible Empire authored by the Harvard anthropologist Carleton S. Coon for OSS Chief William Donovan.
