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.

The Regulatory Paranormal

The pandemic has given rise to a larger question of the validity of regulations versus that of laws in our societies. As a starting point, this post considers whether traffic lights as regulatory objects relay surprising psychological and cultural messages. Do traffic lights contain a hidden spiritual meaning? Is there a cultural correspondence between traffic control and spiritual governance?

Pivot Point for the Great Awakening: Unconscious Collectivism

Fake political news is growing, so how can you spot the misinformation? (26 January 2021). Video Source: Youtube.

I have a new post up at The Dragonfly:

The Miracle of Context

It concerns how one can recognize hidden truths in the post-truth world, where information is controlled, manipulated, denied, erased, and suppressed.

While there are legitimate concerns over technological manipulation and dissemination of unverified information, the establishment are making a mistake if this is the sword they want to die on. 

Our leaders seek to monopolize the right to discuss information publicly, based on their power and expertise. As I have said in a previous post:
"It is not good enough, in the Age of Information, to state something and be believed just because one is authoritative. Purveyors of information must be telling the truth."
If our public figures abuse their power to hide information which challenges that power, they will be exposed. Of course, they will crack down on the free Internet before that happens.

I will soon be exploring practical responses to censorship for my $1 patrons on Patreon, with reports on how you can invest in decentralized social media platforms.

Whether truth is shared inside networks or is observed in the real world, it has a meaning which cannot be controlled or measured. Secrets cannot really be hidden; forbidden knowledge cannot be eradicated. This point has come to a head partly because the Internet takes us into virtual reality, which is a platform for Carl Jung's collective unconscious. We don't need to know something consciously in order to be aware of it unconsciously. And that knowing extends beyond our own individual unconsciousnesses into a collective, objective reality. This is definitely not the type of collectivism that the technocrats want!

The Principle of Causality Confronts the Principle of Synchronicity

Unconscious collectivism is a serious problem for materialists and rationalists. The modern period taught us that the principle of causality provides the foundation of scientific thought. It describes linear, Cartesian consciousness: I think, therefore I am. It is the scheme for testable reality, derived from the Second Law of Thermodynamics. It reveals the world as discovered by the rational mind, awakened within a limited consciousness, bounded by the experimental framework of science.

But can you know something without knowing it or measuring it? Can you know something without thinking? Do our unconscious selves, particularly when they act in the realm of the collective unconscious, have autonomy and independence? Can they fight for freedom of knowing inside that realm? Are those who are still asleep the unexpected foot soldiers of the Great Awakening? 

In the information wars over the past decade, battle lines were drawn between awakened parties, dark and light, battling over unawakened sheep. This is why you have seen stern warnings to the public from the mainstream media, celebrities, and politicians not to look at dangerous information. They are saying: "Don't look at that information, because it might wake you up."

This is also why you have seen frantic appeals from the alternative media to the public to wake up. I posted a message along these lines last year: Wake Up, You're Next. I also explored this issue in my Awaken the Amnesiacs series.

But perhaps the truth is equally a force in the unconscious and conscious realms. This is a revolutionary idea: maybe you don't have to be awake to be part of the Great Awakening. Maybe the sleeper doesn't have to awaken to defend the truth of the human condition. All the world's sleepers might be a bit like the dead army in the Lord of the Rings.

If anything would make the occult controllers say, "Uh oh," it would be that.

According to Carl Jung (1875-1961), the laws of the universe do not work solely according to cause and effect. 21st century experience confirms Jung's ideas. His principle of synchronicity provides an alternative to the principle of causality, where the former is defined by 'meaningfulness.' Meaningful synchronicities are alarming to empiricists, because they are unverifiable. They exist outside conscious thought, and they reside in the realm of the collective unconscious, that is, in the soul spaces of memory, myths, madness, death, and dreams. They are fundamentally uncontrollable.

For example, I don't need to explain why I've juxtaposed the 'Free Hugs' bunker photo above with the Finger Lakes New York map. If you don't know why, it really doesn't matter whether you search for the reason or not. I don't even need to share the material here at all. The information, and its meaning, are already out there and have become independent memes. Both are affecting your reality now, whether you are conscious of them or not.

This will be a news flash as much to the alt media as it is to those who thrive on secrets in darkness: information does not behave according to simplistic, linear, cause-and-effect, manipulatable patterns. Truth can be suppressed; but it still affects reality and everyone knows this, even if they remain unconscious about that fact.

In George Orwell's book, Nineteen Eighty-Four, oligarchical collectivism triumphs because Orwell believed that political realities depended on conscious knowing. Once truth could be eradicated inside the mind of the last radical individual, freedom was surgically removed from the human condition. This outcome presumes that there is no higher order which could reveal itself to human minds trapped inside a technocratic political system.

Orwell was wrong. Even in a completely censored, totalitarian system, the stars would align to point the ways to truth, and the truth would exert a force of its own accord which could not be controlled. Truth arrives in surprising, non-linear, lateral ways, interstitially, through surrealism and synchronicities.

In Jung's concept of synchronicity, events may appear in parallel and not be causally connected. The connectedness occurs instead through higher forms of meaning. Meaningfulness has already been demonstrated online as an independent online force through memes. The meme wars of the 2016 US election showed how memes magically connect people. Memes spontaneously generate independent, powerful meanings inside decentralized, anonymous networked systems.

Synchronicities cannot be assessed by scientific method and cannot be tested empirically. They are coincidences which exist outside the probabilities of chance. Jung described them as "temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events."

It appears that social media's inventors tried to harness the power of synchronicities. Algorithms on social media guide people so that they never see anything or anyone challenging. That false harmony is an artificial version of smooth, synchronized awareness.

The same goes for advanced marketing, in which search engines, AI, IoT, and surveillance mechanisms work together to present us with fake synchronicities. For example, I may talk on the phone about buying dog food. The next day my computer, which was in the same room, begins showing me dog food ads. What a (false) coincidence!

These artificial echo chambers rapidly become bell jars. They initially work, but later they drive people crazy, because deep down, everyone knows something is wrong with them. They are a poor replacement for real synchronicities. It is right at that point of madness that the collective unconscious will depart social media, aka big tech's fake consciousness construct. In short, we will connect to the truth, and respond to it, whether we know it or not. That is how real synchronicities, as natural phenomena, could mobilize the collective unconscious in the Information Age.
