May It Be So, Ma

I know who I am, what I am, and what I intend to do.

I'm going to found a religion.

One based on personal and communal training with psychedelics.

One infused with the energy of Western popular culture.

It will develop individuals with remarkable courage, self-control, and creativity.

People who have confronted their Shadow, and our collective Shadow, and know that this is a life-long process.

People who have learned to access extraordinary energies of apparently Divine origin, absorb them, and then bring them back into everyday life, where they undertake the work of trying to save the world from disaster.

Our message: the Holy Ma is returning to historical time. CLEAN YOUR ROOM. Or else it'll be straight to bed with no supper. Which is this case, will look like society reverting back to Stone Age red-in-tooth-and-claw barbarism. We are at a tipping point between Mad Max chaos and Star Trek transcendence.

We swear it'll be the latter. We will overcome the inner and outer forces trying to lead us to self-destruction.

I'm the first member of the Shamanic Legion of Superheroes. Dozens, hundreds, thousands, millions, billions will follow. When there are enough of us, a critical mass will be achieved, the Problem will be solved, the Universe and its pain redeemed, and the Eschaton will be at hand.

May it be so, Ma.

A New Way to Use Psychedelics

I want to tell you about my approach to working with psychedelics, because I think I'm breaking new ground. If you or someone you know is working along similar lines, get in touch. I want to talk with you.
For now, at least, I'm calling this approach "phonomancy," meaning "divination via sound." If you're a recreational user, it likely won't appeal to you. If you're someone who's dipping your toe in the psychedelic water via microdosing, or someone who is primarily interested in using psychedelics to treat trauma, depression, or addiction issues, you might find the practice I'm going to describe off-putting or even alarming. That's because phonomancy is not therapeutic--it's augmentative. It's a program for developing supra-normative emotional and spiritual capacities via psychological hormesis. Some risk, pain, and fear are part of the process. But that's the price of transformation.

The Devil Horns: A Formula for Success

Nietzsche wrote, "My formula for happiness: a Yes, a No, a straight line, a goal."

He also wrote, "My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it—all idealism is mendaciousness in the face of what is necessary—but love it.”

And this: “What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: 'This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more' ... Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: 'You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.”

And "...all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer."

That's some good shit right there.…

A Gnostic Myth for the 21st Century

I want to make it clear that the following material has emerged spontaneously from the intensive visionary work I've been doing for the past three years. The ideas and images come in piecemeal; this is my initial attempt to fashion them into a coherent narrative. It's not a self-conscious attempt to update the Gnostic mythos for the 21st century, although it's working out that way. It serves as strong explanatory model for the apocalyptic events currently gaining momentum and suggests a means to avert disaster.

The Emanationists (all the various kinds, Gnostics, Hermeticists, Platonists, etc.) described a model of reality that is divided into fractally self-similar levels. It begins with an Ultimate Ground of Being, a No Thing Changeless and Eternal, a Void of Pure Intellect. Intellect requires an object; being all that is (and is not), the Void can only reflect upon Itself. In so doing, it divides into two opposite and complementary halves that, for lack of better …
