Nineleven Eschatology

aztec god

    The subtle Black Magic behind the gross Acts of Annihilation like Nine Eleven is that the discovery of the Lie is factored in to the Operation.  Each Crude Conspiracy is intended to be discovered by the Intelligentsia and Initiated.  Why?   As a demonstration of overwhelming power and defiance by the perpetrators of unspeakable acts to the awakened practitioners of The Good– those who are aware that the practice of ethical behavior is imperative for evolution of the … Continue reading

A Geometry of Escape

Most humans have a personal list of undesirable conditions they wish to escape.  After Death and Taxes, it is usually old age and poverty followed by an ego specific list of boring baddies.   The New Age Thinkers say “Consider our own self created shadow and our lack of knowledge of this dark mirror image as our problem”  and learn to live in light of our urgent collective need to ruthlessly confront  the Beast Within and we have an arena … Continue reading

Conjuring Felt Presence

Locky Lambert, my first Femme Fatale

What separates an image from the mundane to one that seems to have a life of its own, reveals more once it has gained attention, evokes response from a viewer saturated numb by the barrage of sensory input and lends greater significance to its subject?   Is it reasonable for me to suggest the superiority of film over digital technology now that in most respects the advantages of digital– from instantaneous viewing to superior resolution and automation of camera features–place film … Continue reading

Retro-futurist Nostalgia

Aztec Jan 1978

Update Nov. 2014 on excerpt from An Interview with Bill George Bill George entered hospital with pneumonia a year ago and has not been heard from since.  jd December, 2012     Actually Bill, I think what we are talking about today is some form of Nostalgia for RetroFuturism. something closer to  a naive simple scare.   Why simple?  We had Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror. Stardom had meaning in a pre-Warhol context and viewers did not idolize mere unthinking unwatchables. … Continue reading

Children of The Horror

Jan at 50 in Sherman Oaks studio

  My generation, spawned in abundance from postwar industry, yet in the shadow of a secret dark done deal with The “defeated enemy of human kind”– in the name of science, was the first modern generation to be nurtured by larger than life images of The Horror.   For some of us,the word itself evokes a bald Brando-face and voice reciting  T. S. Eliot, The Hollow Men  telling us we must make friends with the horror enshrined in Coppola’s Apocalypse … Continue reading

End of War

     “The mistake is that the concept “serious” is taken conditionally.  One thing is serious for one man and another thing for another man.  In reality seriousness is one of the concepts which can never and under no circumstances be taken conditionally.  Only one thing is serious for all people at all times.   “If a man could understand all the hor ror of the lives of ordinary people who are turning round in a circle of insignificant interests and … Continue reading

Evolutionary Phenomenology

Aztec observatory

From C. H. Hinton, quoted from Tertium Organum by P.D. Ouspensky:   By the same process by which we know about the existence of other men around us, we may know of the high intelligences by whom we are surrounded.  We feel them but we do not realize them.  The power of seeing with our bodily eye is limited to the three-dimensional section.  But the inner eye is not thus limited, we can organize our power of seeing in higher … Continue reading

On Normal Street

Normal Street

The whole life of each of us, our efforts at accumulating riches or power, is the building of a Tower of Babel, because it must end in catastrophe,namely, in death, which is the fate of everything that cannot pass to a new plane of being.   It is a normal day on Normal Street.   The blind unconscious masses struggle with the manifestation of the evolutionary spirit, annihilate or stifle it, and most often destroy what has been created by … Continue reading
