All movements eventually stale and must find ways to revitalize under changing times. This truism goes for any Left-Hand Path tradition. A new work details reforms to the oversights of past magicians like Aleister Crowley. This reboot of sorts results in optimized rituals and the ability to navigate magic systems in these both digital and arduous days. And an understanding of the New Aeon and what it means.

Despite their individualistic vibe, magical movements like Thelema are primarily focused on community and group-support. We explore how to find an occult community, optimize group rituals, and whether occult organizations can thrive online. Can magic and Gnosis exist in virtual realms? This search includes understanding the history and evolution of group magick rituals, from Aleister Crowley to Lon Milo DuQuette, as well as the future of occult rites in the digital age.

Rising accounts of extraterrestrial encounters indicate that something momentous is happening across society. Even the mainstream media have started reporting on the sightings from military pilots around the world. Are we being observed and visited by beings from another planet or a different space-time dimension? Is this just mass projection or some big reveal coming from some faction? We deal with all these questions from various angles that include scientific, spiritual and psychological – tapping into the ideas of impactful thinkers like Richard Dolan, John Lamb Lash, Carl Jung, Rudolph Steiner, Patrick Harpur, and more.

Astral Guest – Daniel Pinchbeck, author of The Occult Control System: UFOs, aliens, other dimensions, and future timelines.

As a bonus, Scott Smith, author of God Reconsidered, joins us for a Trimorphic Paranoia, sharing his ideas and experiences on UFOs, including the possibility it’s all the Archons.

Superstition is more than just believing in fiction. It’s a dangerous incubator for cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias, and warped perceptual filters. Most of all, superstition cuts us off from experiencing the sublime and engaging in deep introspection. We deal with Christian superstition, from the notions of eternal damnation to the idea of a personal Jesus (and much more) — all to uncover the Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Astral Guest – Robert M. Price, author of Jesus Christ Superstition.

We take a journey back in time to the origins of Alchemy, which was an ancient and coded ritual that granted divinity to the seeker. Is it really as old as the first god kings and queens? Is this the real Philosopher's Stone or the great metaphor for inner wisdom? Let's find out.

Since ancient times, some have mapped the journey to find indwelling divinity and cosmic meaning. They are the real Illuminati. We travel across history to understand these psychonauts that include the Greek philosophers, Christian Gnostics, Hermetics, Greek Orthodox mystics, Enlightenment Secret Societies, and more. This expedition grants insights into finding your inner illumination to thrive in a time where humanity deteriorates in the darkness of mere being and collapsing societies.

Ready to delve into the monomyth and other cultural dreams of ancient and prehistoric man? Get your Nous dirty with some archaeology? This leads us to understand the truth behind such primordial myths as the cosmic egg, the cosmic mountain, cyclical time, the hero’s journey, and more. In the end, what the world of archetypes delivers is an actual clash of myths and clash of civilizations in the form of the TMT controversy in Hawaii. What side will you take?

Today’s culture obsesses over the topics of robotics, artificial intelligence, and transhumanism. These ideas are timeless, however, and were explored in ancient Greek myths and philosophy. We take a journey into humanity’s eternal impulse to create sentient tech – from the tale of Talos to the rebellion of Prometheus, from Aristotle’s speculation on slave automatons to early attempts at cyborgs. In ancient and modern times, we keep running into demiurges on Olympus and their machinations to make man into an obedient replicant.

In modern times, man has attempted both ambitious scientific and magical experiments. These experiments are sometimes connected. We explore these connections that include the Montauk Project, The Philadelphia Experiment, and several Babalon Workings. This inspection covers the lives of several occult luminaries like Jack Parson, Aleister Crowley, L. Ron Hubbard, Marjorie Cameron, and more. All this perhaps leads to the Gnosis of the ages and the conquest of time.

It's a deep dive into the mystic and occult themes behind Game of Thrones, including a foundational Gnostic narrative. Is the Night King the Demiurge? Are the Children of the Forest a representation of the fallen Sophia? What do all the religions of Westeros represent, and what are the Jungian Campbellian ideas behind many of the characters? And much more, including a discussion on whether the last season was any good.

What exactly are the Archons? Are they rebellious angels? Extraterrestrial invaders or alien mind parasites? We present a special show on the Powers and Principalities with two brilliant thinkers. Just as important as understanding the reality of the Archons, we gain the insights and tools to overthrow their tyrannical yoke on humanity and a dying planet.

Jul 11, 2019

We explore the crucial but little-known concept in occultism known as the egregore — an autonomous psychic entity created by a shared group mind. An egregore is sustained by belief, ritual, and sacrifice, relying for its existence on the devotion of an assembly of people, whether it’s a small coven to an entire country. This thought-form or collective meme can take on a life of its own, becoming an independent deity that can create despots or change history. Beyond understanding egregores, we find out how to dissipate these entities once they take over a person or nation.

Jul 5, 2019

We explore a new magical philosophy that focuses heavily on the consciousness alteration, shamanistic Gnosis, and building a community based on mutual compassion along with ancestor veneration. It focuses less on results and more on personal development paired with harmonious group dynamics. The goal of this occult system is to reintroduce the world to tribalism in a modern, accepting context, always group-inclusive but supreme in championing the growth of an individual.

We deal with the fascinating creation myth found in the Nag Hammadi library's Tripartite Tractate. This Valentinian work provides as many differences as it does parallels to the Sethian cosmologies. Even more, our guest reveals her beautiful visuals that correspond to this gospel, as well as unique insights on the Gnostic plight and the world we live in today.

We explore the earthly and unearthly forces in the early 70s that shaped the minds of Philip K. Dick, Terence McKenna, and Robert Anton Wilson. This leads to how these psychonauts went to both influence and foretell today’s fragmenting culture. We focus more on Dick, including his Gnosticism that was much earlier than most believe and his predictions of a Gnostic nightmare that has come true.

Jun 17, 2019

It's getting really bad out there. We discuss how prognosis and practical remedy can reverse the ever-increasing stupidity of global society; and the potential for Gnosticism to thrive in such a global reversal. It's a mandate of having a holistic vision in all aspects by all entities and how the greatest thinkers across space and time profess such. More than anything, we gain the tools to self-knowledge and self-transformation in a world of so many false realities.

How did the ancient Gnostics create such personal but transcendental texts? How did they write their own gospels that infuriated orthodoxy? We find out by intimately understanding the process of how a modern poet engaged the Gnostic template to write his own gospel. The result was his soul delving deep into the collective unconscious and high into daemonic realms. Ultimately, he experienced his version of Sophia and the Logos. Our discovery leads to insights on leveraging Gnosis in modern times, including novel approaches to the concepts of evil, free will, ego, and overcoming fear. We also discuss overlooked Gnostic movies like Conan the Barbarian!

As the last great Romantic, WB Yeats drew heavily from the Gnostic and Hermetic traditions. We mine the works of Yeats to find transcendental truths and magical insights. What is the real meaning behind “The Second Coming” and “A Vision”? What are the timeless secrets behind his use of Pagan Irish lore and Hellenistic symbols? What are his stark prophecies that seem to be coming true today?

Beyond being the foundation of most ancient religions and much of Ufology, how did the Sumerian Myths stream into the metaphysical consciousness and magical practices of the Gnostics? Is Sophia a version of Innana and is Enkil the Demiurge enslaving humanity? Vanessa Kindell and Occult Fan arrived to the Virtual Alexandria. From Sumerian magic to archeology to myths, we cover it all.

Beyond drawing from Egyptian mythology, the Book of Genesis is a coded chronology of ancient Egypt. The Hebrew patriarchs are more than fables, paralleling key pharaohs and their dynastic intrigue. We explore the Old Testament heroes with breakthrough scholarship that unveils a secret history — as well the Egyptian myths behind major Judeo-Christian stories. From Akhenaten to Moses, from Horus to the Nephilim, we leave no pyramid-stone uncovered.

In the end, it was a stark warning on weaponized Gnosticism, but with a hopeful message that the best is yet to come if we just look inward.
