Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Countdown to Hallowe'en 2017: Humanity's Tombstone

I try to address really strange conspiracy theories, which nonetheless have some larger importance, during the month of October. Special weirdness is reserved for a Stonehenge-like monument in Georgia, USA, which bears cryptic messages in English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.

The Georgia Guidestones outside Atlanta were erected in 1980 on the orders of man working under an assumed name, R. C. Christian. There are revelations of his secret identity here and here. The Guidestones have inspired fear and vandalism, because alongside their espousal of rationalism, they also declare that the earth's human population should be cut back to 500 million people.

Conspiracists' anti-globalist view from Truthstream Media argues that the Guidestones monument espouses a eugenics program. The monument's architects evidently believed that too many people on the planet stress the environment. The Georgia Guidestones Have Officially Been Updated with the Year 2014 (2014).

Conspiracy theorists believe that the Guidestones state the position of the Illuminati with regard to the masses, and are a prescription for genocide. Conspiracists call the Guidestones "Humanity's Tombstone," while Christians condemn the monument's "Ten Commandments of the Antichrist." These are the Guidestones' commandments:
  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
Others claim that the Guidestones offer the new Ten Commandments for an Age of Reason, by which humankind should govern itself after an expected apocalypse, in a time when only certain areas of the United States and other parts of the world are expected to survive. There is also a time capsule buried beneath the monument, but no instruction is offered as to when it should be opened.

In 2014, the Guidestones had an extra block added with the date 2014 on it, possibly on the initiative of this person. To critics, this date seemed to signal the start of a genocidal plan and/or Antichrist agenda and/or apocalypse. The 2014 addition inspired rage from ultra-Christian and libertarian groups. The cube was removed by furious vandals, who videotaped their attack on the monument.

The initials of the founder's pseudonym indicate that the group which sponsored this monument was not the Freemasons or the Illuminati, but the related secret order of mystic Christians, the Rosicrucians. You can watch the The Sacred History of the Rosicrucians here, and find more information on this secret order on this Youtube channel.

The lecture below summarizes Rosicrucian knowledge available to public, as conceived by Austrian thinker, Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Steiner synthesized science and spirituality in his works, which overlapped with the ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) and the infamous sect of Theosophy. All of these concepts gave substance to the notion that the mind can have power over matter.

Are the Georgia Guidestones altruistic maps to the next spiritual and scientific evolution of human consciousness? Or are they about population control, eugenics and genocide? Conflicting interpretations presume a violent conflict between faith and reason. But the Rosicrucians, who apparently built this monument, insist that fate and reason are reconciled in a process of inner alchemy. For them, there are no conflicts between faith and reason; spirituality and science; mind and matter; the virtual and the real; between consciousness and that of which we are conscious.

I would say that the error in reasoning in the Guidestones is the assumption that this alchemical process between the virtual and the real has a limit. Why is a human population of 500 million declared to be the uppermost limit which can sustain harmony with nature? This statement indicates flawed thinking about the capacities of the environment and of human beings. It reveals pride in the presumption that possessors of certain knowledge, and holders of certain beliefs about that knowledge, know enough to decide for the rest of us what those limitations are. There is a statement of authority there; a declared limit is an assertion of power and control, not of harmony or balance. It claims sufficient authoritative knowledge; but is actually an articulation of insufficient knowledge. Nor does that statement about a capped population express any faith in the infinite expansion of the universe. All of this, I suspect, contradicts or corrupts genuine Rosicrucian principles.

In any event, the Guidestones are interesting because they stand at the exact crossroads between God and Reason. The monument fails by choosing Reason as dominant, rather than identical, to God. In so doing, the Guidestones impose an artificial and erroneous limit on Reason: how far can consciousness extend its grasp of that of which it is aware? Is it not infinite in its possibilities?

This is why the Guidestones' human population cap triggers and enrages conspiracy theorists, libertarians, and evangelical Christians alike. Mainstream and secular critics dismiss these groups for their gullibility, limitations, stupidity, and delusion; but in fact the theorists, libertarians, and Christians all defend much broader ideas than those who attack them.

The conspiracy theorists are rationalists who defend the seemingly irrational, or that which is evident beyond what is socially and politically acceptable. Conspiracist Melissa Dykes of Truthstream Media criticized the Guidestones in terms of Nikola Tesla's (1856-1943) suppressed energy research. The libertarians see the Guidestones' commandments as an unjust infringement, or outright attack on, their lives and freedoms. The Christians, as in the photograph below, believe that the builders of the Guidestones confuse the Creator and the Creation, and are worshiping the latter, limited incarnation in error and sin.

Thus, all of the Guidestones' critics express more confidence in the Rosicrucians' idealized reconciliation between mind and matter than the very Rosicrucians who supposedly engineered this project.
