LETHAL TEXT

‘Quite simply, the lethal text is a text that, when read, renders the reader incapable of reading. It destroys the reader’s mind, inducing a crippling insanity. Only those who have read a lethal text know what it says… but they are in no position to share their knowledge.’

UNDER MY SKIN

Humans are now hackable animals.  The whole idea that humans have this ‘soul’ or ‘spirit’,  and nobody knows what’s happening inside them,  and they have free will — that’s over. Yuval Noah Harari These words constitute a naked, unadorned statement of the ideology behind the World Economic Forum’s project to ‘reset’ the world, economically, socially, […]

THE END OF THE WORLD, MY FRIEND

“It’s the end of the world, my friend,” said Muhammed Zafrul Yilmaz.  The road was fast and empty, long bends snaking between dark, forested hills. The half-moon, floating on its back, scudded through cloud in a halo of petroleum colours; seeing the moon at this angle always reminded me that I was half a world […]

THE POSSIBLE

‘Normal men don’t know that everything is possible.’ David Rousset, The Other Kingdom, 1947 Whenever I get into a deep conversation with someone, where we’re exploring what is and isn’t in this world, as we go deeper and deeper into the subject, sooner or later we hit bedrock — the point where rational argument takes […]

A VERY BIG PIECE OF PAPER

“The Okhrana, the secret police of the GPU, is reported to have invented a filing system in which every suspect was noted on a large card in the center of which his name was surrounded by a red circle; his political friends were designated by smaller red circles and his nonpolitical acquaintances by green ones; […]

The BANALITY of EVIL

READING HANNAH ARENDT in 2022 It might be the most chilling single phrase in the English language. It came irresistibly to Hannah Arendt as she observed Adolph Eichmann’s trial in Jerusalem in 1962. Arendt had been an early fugitive from National Socialist Germany, having been arrested by the Gestapo in 1933 for researching antisemitism, and […]

HAMADRYAD

A hamadryad (Greek: Ἁμαδρυάδες, Hamadryádes) is a Greek mythological being that lives in trees. They are a particular type of dryad, which are a particular type of nymph. Hamadryads are born bonded to a certain tree. Some believe that hamadryads are the actual tree, while normal dryads are simply the entities, or spirits, of the trees. If the […]

INTERVIEW WITH THE DIVOC

JOURNAL YEAR 1 /7 It wasn’t fun, exactly, but I wouldn’t have missed it. A bad trip is still a trip; and quite a trip at that.  My friend Jim worries about me doing this. Jim makes fine guitars; I call him the Just Artisan; he’s always saying ‘I’m just an artisan, but…’ before coming out […]

CARRIE’S HYDRA

There’s more, of course. This abyss is apparently bottomless. Microscopy has revealed both the presence of graphene compounds in the shots, and its disastrous effects on the blood. But there was something else as well. R O Young’s micrographs appear to show the presence of a live parasitic organism in the contents of a Pfizer […]

IS THIS SPIRITUAL WARFARE?

IMAGE: STANDING STONES (detail) by Catherine Forsayeth A former colleague gets in touch. He and his wife have been teaching at an international school in Kuala Lumpur for the last ten years or so. Now they have been told that if they will not comply with the school’s vaccination policy, they will be let go […]

NOUMENON & ICON

Is it all in the imagination?  I’ve never felt that was the case: that everything you see and sense on a psilocybin trip is the projection of your chemically supercharged mind, the product and projection of an intoxicated brain. That’s not how it feels; rather, it feels as if perceptual filters have been lifted, as […]
