Episode 1 out of 20. Link goes to the full playlist. Each video is only a couple of minutes long. Fuck I am terrified of A.I.
No explanation on this one. Full playlist here-
There are more questions than answers, more theories than facts, and there is a world beyond observation. There is so much we don’t understand, despite all our scientific developments, though we endeavor to understand, and sometimes even pretend to. I’m no scientist, but it doesn’t take an Einstein to realize that there are so many unseen factors at play around us, although he had some very compelling ideas. With this post, I recommend checking out the sources first, they’re so much more fizicks-y, more concise than I could ever be in this subject. If you already know this stuff feel free to skip to my breakdown, I’m sure it’ll be a good laugh. Otherwise, these YouTube videos will definitely have the best and most understandable information, plus they’re all pretty short considering how much information they pack (big s/o to Crash Course… seriously what an incredible resource I don’t even care). What follows the video sources is my bumbling, liberal arts brained attempt at explaining the fizziks concepts behind the science presented within the first “Entity X” installment. Why? Because I am dedicated to holism despite how it makes my head hurt and transports me back to humiliating high school days of being violently confused whenever science started being math. Okay whatever, let’s get to these fixzichs sources.

Okay I hoped you watched these videos or at least read the descriptions because the rest of the post builds off the information in the sources, and is not nearly as comprehensive. If you want more information there are entire Crash Course series for Physics and Anatomy, all available on YouTube for free, plus more content than anyone could ever consume. Again, this an armchair endeavor, and there are career experts who have studied these topics their whole lives. I’ve provided some of these more classically academic sources at the end of this post.
Okay here goes nothing… I’m going to start with defining some key terms in my own words and in relation to the “Entity X” story, which if you haven’t guessed by now, is a direct metaphor to humanity, so the presented biology is applicable.
Electric Fields: The space near or around a charged particle which exerts force on the particles around it. Depending on the charge of the main particle, it will either repel or attract the particles and electric fields which are around it. An electric field is always present on any charged particle.
Magnetic Fields: An occurrence in the space around a long-standing magnet (such as the earth’s liquid metal core) where magnetic currents extend beyond the magnet proper when there are two poles present.
Electromagnetism: Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental forces of nature. It is the study of the way electric fields and magnetic fields interact, as well as the connections between the two, and the various trends and consequences associated with said interactions. The Earth is one giant electromagnet, due to it producing a natural magnetic field originating from the liquid metal core, and a subsequent electric field which inevitably interact with each other to form one big electromagnetic field. This phenomena protects the living beings on it from most of the harmful radiation in space, (i.e. high frequency electromagnetic waves that cannot be empirically experienced due to environmental evolution and limited biology).
Electromagnetic Spectrum: The electromagnetic spectrum encompasses all of the known categorizations of electromagnetic energy and radiation released from stars, including host stars such as the sun, categorized by wavelength and energetic potency. One on end of this spectrum are the low frequencies: radio waves, radar waves, microwaves, and infrared waves, in the middle is visible light, and on the other end are high frequency, high energy forms, referred to as “rays” rather than waves: UV rays, x-rays, gamma rays, and cosmic rays.
Electromagnetic Waves: Electromagnetic waves are transverse waves which illustrate the interactions between a given electric field and a given magnetic field. All electromagnetic waves are inherently radiation waves due to the nature of their movements. Other than a small amount of visible light waves, all other electromagnetic waves are essentially invisible to the human eye. Low frequency waves (those lower than visible light) can be registered through other empirical senses such as hearing (when used in tandem with certain technologies), and kinesthetic touch (the necessary relationship between light, heat, and human kinesthetic experience will be further addressed in the near future). High frequency waves, (those higher than visible light), are invisible, inaudible, and are able to pass through the human body, meaning these types of waves cannot not be empirically experienced by humans, though their structure and effects can be theoretically interpreted and limitedly utilized through scientific means. Basically, low frequency electromagnetic “waves” can be empirically experienced in one way or another by human facilities, while high frequency electromagnetic “rays” are impossible to directly observe with human facilities.
Visible Light: Light is electromagnetic radiation travelling in waves. Visible light is a very small section situated in the middle of the larger electromagnetic spectrum. Visible light can be experienced and interpreted by the anatomy of the human eye. In addition to the colors present on the visible light spectrum (R.O.Y.G.B.I.V.), humans are also able to collect and interpret white light, the absence of light, grayscale, and to a limited extent, “black” or ultraviolet/UV light. While we can technically experience UV light, direct or prolonged exposure is not recommended as it can severely damage skin and vision, and therefore is not considered visible.
Lenses: Lenses allow for the reshaping of light waves with obstacles. The lens structure present in the human eye allows for advanced collection of data from visible light sources, as well as advanced memory and interpretation of said light, thanks to the attached nervous system (almost 70% of all sensory receptors are in the eyes, and visual experiences are considered the dominant sensory experiences for humans). The wave nature of light inherently limits the use of lens technology, however scientific innovation has allowed for many technologies to be developed such as corrective lenses, polarized lenses, telescopes, and cameras.
Sound: Sound consists of relatively low frequency longitudinal waves caused by vibrations which interact with the ear, rather complexly, to experience sound phenomena. Sound experience for humans is generally limited to pitches of 20 p/s – 20,000 p/s. Low frequency radio waves, when used in conjunction with technologies such as radios, mobile phones, and televisions can be registered as sound experience by the human ear and brain.
There’s something very important I did not take into account when I first described the evolutionary environment responsible for the creation of “Entity X”: Electromagnetic fields. The electromagnetic field surrounding the planet deflects most of the harmful radiation (or intense manifestations of light) that come off of the host star… (sounds familiar, doesn’t it?). The factors keeping this planet safe enough to facilitate complex lifeforms physically made certain types of light and energy very rare and unlikely to be naturally encountered in registerable amounts. I maintain that this factor plays a major role in the evolution of “Entity X”’s empirical facilities. If they evolved to effectively interact with the environment, it stands to reason that their evolution would lead to strong senses for efficiently and effectively interpreting regular energy occurrences (i.e. low frequency electromagnetic waves) . Since the majority of harmfully potent energy occurrences (i.e. high frequency electromagnetic “rays”) are, naturally, barred from the environment due to the planet’s magnetic field, therefore lacking in the environment, it also stands to reason that biological evolution would not bother taking these into account when developing empirical facilities.
Speaking of said facilities, they are marvels of their own, despite their shortcomings in viewing or registering all of the possible electromagnetic radiation levels. The complex sensory structures coupled with the awesome computing power of “Entity X’s” brain has allowed it to feed its curiosity beyond its biological ability to collect hard data. Through strict scientific and mathematical processes and heavy pedagogy, a sector of theoretical sciences has emerged. While this practice is responsible for the creation of many extraordinary developments and technologies, the science behind these developments is still all theoretical. For example, science has proved that manufacturing and application of “x-ray” waves is useful for seeing behind opaque surfaces. When you go through airport security or get those squares shoved in your mouth at the dentist, you are experiencing the effects of these rays, but not experiencing the rays directly or empirically. However, the potential consequences of employing x-ray waves or long term exposure to x-rays are not entirely understood, due to the theoretical understanding behind these technologies. This supports the point I made in the first “Entity X” installment: incomplete empirical experiences cannot lead to complete understanding or sciences. I am in no way trying to discredit science or downplay the effects it has on the world at large, I am simply urging that we employ a healthy amount of holism and academic skepticism when exploring topics that are strictly theoretical, or ones that rely on evidence that is not purely empirical. When it comes to the nature of the universe, there is definitely more that is unknown than that is known to be certain. We can make fancy approximations all day, but the questions seem to always outweigh the answers within the theoretical sciences.
Allow me to elaborate on some the most elusive phenomena encompassed in the theoretical sciences. Most of these phenomena play expansive and important roles in the establishment and sustaining of the universe and therefore life, however our understanding of them is incomplete at best. How about gravity? Another one of the fundamental forces of the universe, an undeniable force that holds the universe together. Can anyone say for sure how it works? There are some excellent guesses out there, including the theory of general relativity.
This theory states that space and time are inherently connected, which Einstein represented as a fabric-esque or malleable sheet like plane, and that massive celestial bodies have the ability to warp this plane in a way that creates the phenomena of gravity. I find this theory is best explained in an image (fig. 8). Einstein’s math, I’m told, is sound, and so is his logic, but general relativity must remain a theory because human beings lack the biological ability to empirically prove its validity. Now what about dark matter? Experts believe it out numbers regular matter exponentially even though its presence and composition is empirically impossible to experience or prove. What sort of effects, and what caliber of effect, does this ample and unseen…stuff, goo, I don’t know…have on the universe? On life? On the relationship between the two? What mysteries could be solved by an empirical understanding of this phenomena? Is it the opposite of matter, a lack of matter, or something else entirely? See what I mean? More questions than answers. Although theories and guesses surrounding the nature of dark matter are everywhere, it’s well established that none of these are truly facts, and we continue to live under the consequences of dark matter without having any true understanding of it outside of the theoretical. Lastly, let’s discuss black holes.
Black holes are celestial phenomena categorized by a lack of light, extreme gravitational force, plus they largely ignore any established rules, and evade the general human scientific framework and understanding of physics. Humans have no need to understand black holes, as encountering one would permanently cease our curiosity (and existence), so it makes perfect sense that our biology would not account for understanding them. However this has not stopped our insatiable curiosity from attempting to understand. Despite all the time and energy placed into researching this endeavor, our understanding of black holes remains rudimentary at best, and still completely theoretical. As with dark matter, the possible ramifications of being able to empirically understand black holes could unravel unimaginable quantum and cosmological secrets, but for now we must continue to live with the lack of answers, and an incomplete understanding of the powerful phenomenon that ultimately control us.
In summation, electromagnetic physics is complex and confusing, and largely theoretical when it comes down to it. Despite the inherent lack of absolute understanding in this field, mathematics and logic has led to the development of several theories that perhaps point us in the right direction, but ultimately cannot be fully factual. Due to the physics of the earth, mainly our electromagnetic field, human biology has not developed the ability to empirically confirm any aspect of theoretical physics, therefore we purely rely on theories to provide any semblance of understanding about the very forces and phenomenon that have allowed us to live long enough to question them. Like I said, this is not a diss to science- I just think maintaining a certain level of academic skepticism is necessary when considering the theoretical sciences, because there is obviously a disconnect between human biology and full electromagnetic experience. Additionally, I think that the answers we seek live inside those lapses of understanding, and possibly this is by design. But that’s just me.
Okay y’all thank you for indulging me… I know I’m no scientist so please don’t be too hard on me. I did my best, and I feel like my understanding of physics has improved immensely because of the research I did for this post. Like always, use the provided sources (and any other sources you want), perform your own research on these matters, and remember that one person’s opinion or theory cannot be absolutely true, especially when it comes to the theoretical sciences. Don’t let ego or arrogance keep you from an open mind. An open mind is a very powerful tool for understanding, especially when your empirical facilities fall short. The only thing I think anyone can know for certain is that the truth changes and is reliably fluid, and that mindset is the most useful I can imagine. Trying to force understanding when lacking proof is counterintuitive and counterproductive, and if an outside party is attempting to do such a thing to you, know that there is likely another agenda which would be hindered by practitioners who are able to think for themselves and perpetuate their own personal truth, hence the necessity of violent dogma. But, once again, I’m getting ahead of myself. So take a look at these final sources if you so please, and I’ll be back soon with the next “Entity X” installment.
1. Electromagnetic Spectrum:
- Black Holes
- Sound Waves
- Einstein and General Relativity
I’m also going to use this blog to share some interesting and creepy content from around the web. When you see any post with the phrase “Rabbit-Hole” in it, know that it is not directly related to my research, but it is still worth checking out, if only for a laugh or a scare… depending on what kind of person you are.
If parents letting YouTube and endless streams of “Finger Family” videos babysit their kids has always rubbed you the wrong way, congratulations. You were right to feel that way.
Certain Observational Phenomena i
Entity X and The Limits of Empirical Observation
A Thought Exercise For Your Consideration
fig. 1fig. 2
As we begin this series, it’s important to keep this in mind: It’s all about energy, specifically light and the electromagnetic spectrum. Light powers the universe, light allows for life, and most importantly, light allows for life to observe itself and the universe. Light is the main thing- remember that- it is imperative to holism that the entire electromagnetic spectrum be consistently considered in relation to visible and audible frequencies. The distinction between all of light energy and just what is visible will be important to retain.
Light has allowed an intelligent, apex predator species called “Entity X” to take form over many years on one of the planets orbiting the habitable zone of a star not unlike our sun. A number of environmental variables lined up perfectly to allow “Entity X” to evolve over long eons into such a resourceful and unique creature; the most powerful living being on its planet. Here’s the thing about evolution, as many of us are aware: it is environmental. Species change over time to more effectively interact with their environment.
( If, for some reason, this is news to you or you’re having trouble grasping the concept, here: https://kids.britannica.com/kids/article/Charles-Darwin/353038 ).
Now that we’ve settled on that, there’s something important that needs to be understood about the evolution of “Entity X”, mainly their eyesight and ears. Because of the precise distance between their planet and their host star which has allowed them to exist at all, their eyes and ears have developed accordingly, and they are only able to interpret light and energy in the forms it generally appears to them– visible light and sound. They can only properly register a certain, small amount of all light and energy, as pictured at the top of the page (figures 1 and 2). While “Entity X” can boast the title of most powerful life form on their planet, they are only empirically able to experience a limited amount of data, that being longitudinal audio waves of a small range of lower frequencies and transverse light waves that fall on the visible light section of the larger spectrum. In the earlier years of their existence, when “Entity X” lived comfortably within these empirical constraints, there was a balance; a symbiotic relationship between the intelligent “Entity X” and the various elements and environments of their home planet. However, “Entity X” has an innate curiosity, and no matter how peaceful the relationship between them and the planet, they could not help themselves from deconstructing it for the sake of understanding. However, despite this drive, “Entity X” had not physically evolved to naturally sustain this curiosity; the evolution was self invoked. In other words, their stomachs were bigger than their eyes, so to speak. They lack the biological ability to properly assess the subject of their curiosity. This makes their empirical experience incomplete and their intellectual pursuits highly fallible; how can one boast accuracy without fully experiencing the data being interpreted? How can data be accurately interpreted if it is supposedly done correctly through empirical means, but the inquirer lacks the empirical facilities to interpret it? In spite of these concerns, incredible strides were made over the history of “Entity X”’s existence as they endeavored to understand the world around them. Through the use of mental tools like mathematics, science, technology, and logic, “Entity X” gained the ability to approximately and theoretically interpret otherwise invisible data. Does this make up for the lack of biological resources, or does it remove them further from understanding because their incomplete conclusions are treated as absolute? At any rate, “Entity X” began beating evolution at its own game, changing exponentially compared to the natural pace, and that of their environment. Seems like a sweet deal, gunning it and out running nature like that, but it’s something else entirely, and besides, I’m getting ahead of myself.
The takeaway here is this: Light is complex; the word is widely applicable. Light and energy are one in the same; different locations on one spectrum. Light is both the lower frequencies that can be observed and interpreted by the limited biological infrastructure of “Entity X” and the various other waves of energy present on the entire electromagnetic spectrum. “Entity X” has established intellectual and total dominion over their home planet, despite possessing incomplete empirical facilities in relation to the vast amount of energy forms they endeavor or have claimed to understand, but are physically unable to interpret.
Keep these things in mind as we continue following the story of “Entity X”.
I will be doing a “deconstructed”, source filled, ancillary post to this one similar to the one on Hellenistic Age philosophy. I will definitely be taking some liberties in the “Entity X’ thought experiment series, but for each entry, I’ll be providing tandem academic essays. I am not a physicist, but I’ll do my best to provide some decent background and sources.
Because all of the political hubbub I’ve had to deal with over the last few days, I want to take a short break from examining Luciferian phenomena. I’m pressing the old reset button and taking the opportunity to go back through and examine important historical and cosmological background information. Instead of jumping in head first, I’m going to work on consolidating a respectable body of background knowledge and sources, working my way up to the big issues. That way, when I re-approach the “puppet master” phenomena, I will be able to do so with a freshly informed perspective. That being said, I will be doing a series on the nature of light and empiricism coming soon! Stay tuned.
And don’t worry, it’ll all come into play 🙂
For the entire duration of my studies in the occult and its effects on humanity at large, I have made a grave social error that I must correct. Please understand something about me: I am neuro atypical and highly introverted. My life consists of working, researching, and breaks in between when I am overwhelmed by my studies and need to rot my brain with sex, inane television and Youtube videos. So it’s safe to say that my social skills and social life leave much to be desired, and I do not engage with social media on the same level as most of my peers. It is for this reason that I have been unaware of the highly offensive and slur-like meaning behind the word “cabal”. Up until now, I have been using “cabal” as a catch all term to describe the ever present underground, “puppet master” phenomena in regards to its role in the long term degradation of human spirituality. I heard it somewhere once before in media that I did not necessarily take seriously, however the term stuck with me. I arrogantly believed that everyone has the same academic and altruistic mission as me, and I foolishly did not look further into this term and allowed it to be a part of my vernacular for many months before I was eventually corrected. If anyone out there is like me- simply researching macro historical phenomena for purely academic purposes, and wishes to be as inoffensive and apolitical as possible has made this error, allow me explain the egregious issues with the term “cabal”.
A major hindrance to performing research about this particular subject is the existence of a worldwide group of highly offensive and egotistical conspiracy theorists. (I will explain the difference between what I do and popular “conspiracy theory” later in this post). These people, ranging from malicious to well intentioned, and uninformed, hold a belief similar to mine; that there is an underground group of elite individuals who control global events and populations for unseen, yet inexplicably evil ends. However, they have strayed far from the pure premise, and have made many unfounded accusations towards the group they believe to be responsible- the Jewish people (trite, isn’t it?). The theorists who use the word “cabal” are responsible for many horrible notorious notions in pop culture, such as Holocaust denial. This particular conspiracy theory is largely Piscean and contemporary when considered on a macro-historical scale, but the widespread abuse and scapegoating of Jewish people is nothing new. Personally, I believe that the “puppet master” phenomena in regards to human religion extends far beyond Judaism; that it has been around far longer than any form of monotheism, and will be around long after technology makes religion obsolete. For the age of Pisces however, blaming the Jewish people for the degradation of human spirituality seems to fit an already popular and surprisingly socially acceptable trend. Introduction of the term “Cabal” was simply a quick and lazy scapegoating mechanism that seems to still further turn people against the Jews to this day. They, the “puppet masters” used a perversion of the official name for Jewish mysticism, “Kabbalah”, to fabricate a vague, long standing connection between the actual evil forces at play within humanity and the Jews that has unfortunately only grown over time. There is no real proof, beyond coincidence, to suggest that the Jews have played any significant role in the degradation of human religion, in fact, the opposite is true; they have played a significant role in the evolution of human religion by promoting the curious spin of questioning the status quo in search of truth within the scope of monotheism while continuously being victimized and mistreated. The contemporary connection between Judaism and a far more ancient system which essentially represents unseen evil and spiritual retrograde through use of the term “cabal” and its varying connotations are unwarranted, untrue, and highly offensive. I sincerely apologize for freely using this term in the past, and now that my understanding has grown, I will no longer use this term in any of my research work or personal vernacular.
I would like to quickly set the record straight.
The difference between the holistic research I conduct and the missions of overzealous conspiracy theorists is simple. “Cabal” conspiracy theorists are a dangerous hive mind of disenfranchised and disgruntled amateurs who rely on hateful messages, shock value, and misinformation to spread lies about certain cultural groups, most notably the Jewish people. Those types of theorists are looking for a scapegoat, and continue the abhorrent trend of blaming the Jews for everything and anything, even going as far as to deny their centuries long struggle against the rest of the western world. They reliably appeal to extreme political biases, and the ultimate goal of these groups is to find a convenient scapegoat that confirms their discriminatory biases. This is akin to sending the wrong person to jail for murder while the actual killer roams free, posing a danger to society at large. I maintain that my research is fundamentally different. I use academic sources to analyze macro historical events, characters, and timelines regarding human religious beliefs of all kinds in order to piece together a rough timeline for human spiritual evolution/degradation. No group goes unanalyzed, however that is purely for holistic reasons, and I am in no way seeking someone or something to blame for the degradation. Unlike conspiracy theorists, I understand my limitations as a scholar, and that my studies, even if bordering on accurate, will not significantly influence or change the dangerous system and current popular opinions that are already in play. The whole thing is way bigger than any single individuals influence. That being said, every culture and belief system, without exception, plays a significant role in tracking down and pinpointing the source of the obviously present spiritual dissonance. I try to keep polarizing perspectives such as politics and economics far from my research, (though sometimes I do slip up, and must eat my humble pie). Lastly, I conduct this research for myself, to find the truth about religion, and to provide public sources and hypotheses for anyone else looking to achieve something similar.
- Don’t use the term “cabal”, it’s essentially a racial slur.
- The Holocaust definitely happened, and the Jewish people are victims, not perpetrators, of spiritual oppression.
- The line between holistic research and conspiracy theory must constantly remain crystal clear in order to achieve academic legitimacy of any kind. Holism and sources must be consistent and beyond reproach.
- I apologize for my social ignorance. The last thing I want to do is ruffle feathers where none need to be ruffled, or to further spread offensive vernacular.
I understand that I took certain liberties in my previous post when describing Hellenistic philosophy and thought schools. This post serves as an ancillary source on that topic. (Seriously, holism is the most important aspect to all of my research, and I want to extend that to anyone who is using my website as a research medium). A strong understanding of Hellenism is one of many necessary blocks for building a holistic tapestry depicting the truth of human spiritual evolution and degradation. For our purposes, since this is a macro historical inquiry, and we are trying to cover as much ground as possible, I’ll be going over the philosophical evolution of the larger Hellenistic age (approximately 624 BCE-30 BCE) rather than the Hellenistic period which begins with the death of Alexander the Great. ( 323 BCE- 30 BCE). ‘Hellenistic’, connotatively and for our purposes as theosophists, is a descriptor used to detail aspects of the latter period of Greek cultural prominence; that which coincides with subsequent Roman takeover, and significant historical convergence of Greek and Roman culture and philosophy. (The specifics of the life and death of Alexander the Great will have to be saved for a later essay.) There are many academic propositions for the exact dates which define Hellenism, but I have attempted to compile the data as simply as possible by focusing on the philosophical schools that developed during this time. This is a very generalized timeline and description of a subject that scholars have devoted their entire lives to; I cannot stress that enough. I have included an additional index of academic sources that helped me with this timeline and essay, and which I strongly encourage my readers to take a look at. Additionally, for simplicity’s sake I have approximated the dates which punctuate the timeline. The years provided are the generally agreed upon birth dates of the mentioned philosopher, as the influence and impact of the mentioned philosophies cannot be accurately dated. Once again, I insist that my readers strive for a holistic understanding of the information presented on this blog, and that includes properly notifying you of any of my shortcomings or approximations made in the name of simplicity or the bigger picture. And of course providing comprehensive academic sources to make up for it. After the timeline there will be explanations for the main schools of Hellenistic philosophy: Pythagoreanism, Sophism, Socratic and Platonic Philosophy, Cynicism, Stoicism, and the introduction of Judaism.
A Time Line for Your Consideration
The Hellenistic Age in Philosophical Thought
624 BC: Thales of Miletus
Considered to be the “first Greek Philosopher”, and historically recognized as the first person in western civilization known to have entertained and engaged in scientific philosophy. He was one of the seven sages of Greece.
570 BC: Pythagoras of Samos
510 BC: Anaxagoras
Credited with bringing western philosophy into Athens from the fringes of Greece. He gave notable and novel scientific descriptions of natural processes and phenomena, most notably eclipses and the sun.
490 BC: Protagoras of Abdera
Prominent Sophist, and practitioner of “radical relativism”. He is famous for his “3 Claims”: 1. Man is the measure of all things”, 2. “make the worse argument and appear the better”, and 3. “one cannot tell if the gods exist of not.”
469 BC: Socrates
Popularized and generalized western philosophy. Largely enigmatic, he is credited with popularizing epistemological thinking and pedagogical teaching styles in western academia.
460 BC: Democritus
Considered the father of modern science.
427 BC: Plato
384 BC: Aristotle
365 BC: Pyrrho and Pyrrhonism
341 BC: Epicurius and Epicureanism
333 BC: Zeno of Citium and The Beginning of Stoicism
323 BC: Euclid
316 BC: Arcesilaus and Academic Skepticism
121 BC: Marcus Aurelius and Stoicsm
106 BC: Cicero and Eclecticism
30 BC: Philo of Alexandria and Hellenistic Judaism
(You’ll notice a trend after Aristotle- the philosophers begin naming philosophies after themselves, and the field is controlled by stoicism for an entire century before monotheism begins rearing its head. This is no coincidence, and everything leading up to that primes elite followers, and to a lesser extent, population centers, to embrace whatever comes next with blind faith in established pedagogy. Hopefully, my analysis will convince you, to any degree, to agree that the evolution of Hellenistic philosophy by itself lays out a decent roadmap to illustrate the retroactive shift from Aries age belief to Piscean age belief.)
From a western standpoint, Aries’ age belief consists of the early Babylonian and Egyptian mythologies all the way up until the end of the Western Roman Empire. It is generally the same stories echoed onto one another, with varying geographical, political, cultural nuances. These mythologies begin with primordial nothing, and then order is brought by giants and new immortal energies. From there, the second generation purifies itself from the first, and effectively establishes dominion over humans. These parties (with the exception of the giants), are inherently inaccessible to mortal kind, but still necessary for spirituality, and spiritual understanding in the age of Aries. They were symbolically generated into complex pantheons consisting of characters who embodied the best and worst aspects of both nature and humanity. This was the norm in the west, as well as many stories and oral traditions that further developed these characters and their interactions with mortal kind. The Greek and Roman stylizations of this pantheon are common, popular knowledge (Zues, Prometheus, the whole gang). Conversely, Pisces age belief is hallmarked by the villainizing of pantheon style worship, prominence of oppressive monotheism, and the introduction of the contemporary invisible devil archetype into the collective consciousness. The Hellenistic age and the philosophies developed therein effectively serve as a step ladder to Piscean monotheism. One day, men started questioning what they couldn’t see, and the trend only got more popular over time, until they eventually arrived at stylized, “logical” martyrdom and blind faith as a solution to questions that they found did not have absolute answers. What could have been a very interesting and informative foray into the nature of experience and empiricism proved to be too useful for Luciferian forces and was targeted or manipulated over the centuries as Greece and Egypt were overtaken by Rome. It is also worth noting that in addition to what is largely considered public knowledge about Hellenistic age philosophy, there is also an enigmatic, occult/esoteric aspect to most of the philosophies, about which little is known (sources available). These phenomena and their relationship to spiritual degradation will be discussed at length at a later date.
It all began with Thales of Miletus, born in 624 BC. A Greek man who one day decided to apply what we would call “scientific processes” to his experiences… and he was shocked by the results! He is heralded as the first Greek philosopher, and he is one of the seven sages of Greece. He began the domino effect by no means other than simple intellectual curiosity. The decision to sanction the deconstruction of the physical world and Aries age spiritual status quo was made when this man’s ideas began gaining prominence. One wrong choice made in curiosity also starts off the events in Genesis which leads to the rest of it. The next big philosophy is Pythagoreanism. Metempsychosis or “transmigration” and tools for navigating this such as early Hermetics (primarily numerology, mathematics/geometry, and music) and soul science are a large part of this early, enigmatic, and ascetic school of thought. Although incredibly covert, his teachings heavily influenced most of his contemporaries and many of the other famous Hellenistic philosophers that succeeded him. Pythagoras waltzed through the door opened by Thales and became an eccentric character in the world of western academia which only increased the intrigue in what was slowly becoming a sensation. A contemporary of Pythagoras, Anaxagoras, is credited with bringing the new philosophies from the fringes of Greece into Athens. Other contemporaries of Pythagoras would create comparatively minor thought practices as Sophism and Cynicism, both of which left an imprint on the cultural and political trends that followed their advent. Sophism is characterized by a certain type of educational rhetoric aimed at teaching “arete” (ethical excellence) to wealthy statesmen and nobles. These teachers played a significant, behind the scenes role in maintaining Greek and Athenian (and eventually Roman) political structure during the Hellenistic age. One sophist I’d like to mention by name is Protagoras of Abdera. His entry on the timeline; the 3 Sophist claims promote absolute humanity, absolute dominion, and absolute intellect of humans. While logically sound and particularly powerful for ego inflation, “radical relativism” successfully removed masses of people from their deeper spiritual and intuitive roots by giving them ethical grounds for total intellectual dominion, effectively instigating spiritual retrograde. That leads us to cynicism, which is characterized by living simply, supremely disciplined, and in accordance with nature. Diogenes took cynicism to logical extremes, and the practice ultimately became synonymous with rejecting all material pleasure in pursuit of greater spiritual happiness. He opted to live homeless on the street rather than ruin his relationship to nature with frivolous materialism… I think it borders on the absurd, (and definitely parallels biblical behavioral guidelines).
Next we have the big three boys, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. Yes, they essentially embody all of Hellenistic philosophy, but the truth is they were largely responsible for the pedantry that made philosophical learning inaccessible to the public at large. Socrates operated on the same level as his predecessors, but scaled up. While he was enigmatic, he was well known and sought out by many scholars. However, they were mostly wealthy individuals who had the time and resources to commit to memorizing the pedantics necessary to practice with Socrates. Plato knew all about it, and he attempted to make learning more accessible by writing books and telling stories, and Aristotle essentially sold out. (This is just my humorous opinion and there is plenty to learn from and about these individuals and the professionals who research them!). I chose to view them from this perspective because it supports my bias that Hellenism led directly to the rise of monotheism, and the evidence of this is present. I see a parallel between the gap of knowledge growing through the centuries where Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle held prominence in western academic circles during the Hellenistic age and the way the knowledge gap grew in the Piscean, European dark ages, leading to increased reliance on symbols and the word of more privileged and educated individuals. These three prominent Hellenistic philosophers drowned the practice in pedantry and pedagogy to the point where any lay men couldn’t have had the opportunity to learn effectively from masters. Spiritual guidance and formal ethical education was effectively reserved for the wealthy and powerful during this period of philosophical history.
Pyrrhonism and skepticism, Epicureanism, stoicism, academic skepticism, and eclecticism are the final purely philosophical practices before the popular advent of biblical monotheism. Pyrrhonism is the predecessor of skepticism, concerned with achieving “ataraxia”, or general peace of mind through “epoche” which essentially means withholding judgement about matters related to belief. Essentially, their strategy was resigning to willful ignorance and blind faith for the sake of emotional simplicity. Pyrrhonism and skepticism promote emotional martyrdom and spiritual complacency; letting go of any attachments to ego, ego manifestations, or situational control or power in order to sustain a life with little to no inner conflict. Epicureanism was considered skepticisms rival practice, and focused on the inevitable chaotic nature of the universe and is hallmarked by the disbelief and absence of divine influence in mortal affairs. Epicureans believed that absence of pain is the greatest pleasure, and they advocated for simple and pleasurable living. In my opinion, it is reminiscent of contemporary atheism, and there is some obvious seeds of polarity being planted here. Stoicism borrows heavily from the practice of cynicism, advocating living in accordance with nature by freeing oneself from self destructive emotions such as anger, envy, or sadness through self discipline. This practice was incredibly popular for a very long time, beginning with Zeno of Citium near 333 BC and reaching its peak with Roman scholar Cicero near 106 BC. Academic skepticism was similar to traditional skepticism, but challenged the practice epistemologically, attacking the logical and empirical lapses in the original skeptical beliefs. Finally, there was eclecticism, which was basically a buffet of all the already existing philosophies. Once the evolution of Hellenistic philosophy plateaued, it didn’t take long for Judeo-Christian characters to introduce themselves into the occasion. Scholars such as Philo of Alexandria, Clement of Alexandria, and Plotinus quickly boosted monotheism to the forefront of wealthy and powerful circles through mixing biblical ideas into well established Hellenistic ones.
That’s the essay everyone thanks for your time… I hope you learned something new because I certainly had to do a lot of boring philosophy research, but I’m glad to have it all consolidated now. To confirm, I believe, fully, that the hellenistic age was the beginning of the end of the great Greek civilization, and that the well meaning attempt at understanding experience spiraled into an intellectual trap that ultimately planted the seeds that would spur collective western spirituality into a retrograde. The logical and scientific approaches to religion practiced throughout the Hellenistic age deprived populations of the innately intuitive and personal aspects offered by the old mystic pantheon religions, and primed the leaders of the time and place to seek uniform ethics and moral simplicity above all else and at any cost. This inevitably led to the rise of and reliance on biblical monotheism and… well we all know how that’s turning out.

There exist ancient and still prevailing traditions practiced by elite, occult circles associated with Luciferian schools and doctrines. The existence of these doctrines (and its followers) chronologically coincides with the advent of the fore-bearers of contemporary monotheism- namely esoteric/Hellenistic Judaism and later Christianity. Luciferianism as a school/practice begins with the historical (but more likely, prehistorical) conception of the ‘Lucifer’ archetype, character, or energy.
Luciferianism: Lucifer comes from the Latin “light”. Lucifer, biblically, is a fallen angel who has been ousted from his post by equating himself to the monotheistic God. Lucifer also takes the form of a serpent who disrupts the “perfect” garden by providing humanity with wisdom originally forbidden by God. Luciferianism is a very elite esoteric/occult practice associated with the worship of the Lucifer archetype/character. The goal of this practice changes as the earth works backward along the astrological wheel (i.e. moving from age to age), but it historically focuses on destroying and blurring the relationship between the masses (aka people who do not officially practice Luciferianism), and the secret spiritual knowledge that all humans were once entitled to. Accomplishing this on a large enough scale allows the practitioners of Luciferianism to, ostensibly, achieve powers beyond what is generally achievable. However since the earth is actually moving retroactively along the zodiac, the collective spiritual ability of humanity at large decreases, and the “powers” offered to the practitioners are not “powers” as much as they are advantages over the general public. While they believe they are pulling the wool over our eyes, the wool is likely being pulled over their eyes by a Luciferian power.
Schools of Hellenism: Ranging from Stoic esoteric circles to neo-Platonic schools, Hellenistic schools aim to introduce and integrate aspects such as logic and science into spiritual phenomena, and further use empirical evidence to support ethical lifestyle. The Hellenistic schools promote the mixing of reality with spiritual absoluteness. Through the lens of a given Hellenistic school, religion takes the form of a strict and detailed moral framework based formulations configured from various occult and numerological sciences (the specifics of these are generally unknown to the public). Compared to before the advent of these thought schools when religion consisted directly of an individual’s unique relationship with their chosen energies, deities, and places, Hellenistic schools served as an effective precursor to the introduction of monotheism and Christianity by getting populations accustomed into accepting pre-ordained spiritual dogma, and discouraging doctoring of said dogma outside of strict pedagogy. Hellenism popularized accepting another person or group of peoples wisdom over personalized, intuitive wisdom based on individual experiences.
Ocean of Deceit: A good illusion requires teamwork. Quality diversions, an audience willing to believe what they see and hear, a mastermind willing to set up all the dominoes, and someone gunning to destroy the masterminds hard work. Esoterica is purposefully confusing and very intentionally lacking tangible proof for claims made. In the Holocene, yesterday and today, diversions vary- Hellenistic schools fall under this category. They successfully managed to wean major metropolitan populations off of personally tailored spirituality and had in fact popularized dogma among both the poor and wealthy. Nowadays the Luciferian elite have experimented on and nearly perfected population control without the use of the religion symbol, and as this trend continues to develop, new methods will undoubtedly emerge. Hellenism was one of many diversions employed by Luciferian powers, and it will certainly not be the last. As the times change, they will be irrefutably preceded by tumult in Luciferian circles (the true specifics of which will never be overt public knowledge). I will concede that politics is a very clever model for camouflaging absolute spiritual takeover. Regardless of that, I wouldn’t call a retroactive religious set up like the existing one an “Ocean”… it far more resembles the mysterious and winding, serpent like Lake of The Ozarks.
