I recoded a mini-podcast while driving yesterday. You can now get it either from the Internet Archive or from YouTube. Here is podcast page:
or you can just listen to it on YouTube:
Interesting podcast; however, you should also take in consideration that the elites will always take advantage of the populace’s ignorance and gullibility, and their inability to think for themselves (trained not to think critically). The facts proposed before are driven mainly by the masses’ lack of education and to a great extent to their worship of materialism.
Consider for example today’s American populace: these people fit indeed in Leo Strauss’ categorization of society, the Vulgar Many.
“The Vulgar Many, are lovers of wealth and pleasure. They are selfish, slothful, and indolent. They can be inspired to rise above their brutish existence only by fear of impending death or catastrophe.”
Does it sound like someone you may know in your neighborhood down there in Florida?
* Leo Strauss was a German-American political philosopher and classicist who specialized in classical political philosophy (September 20, 1899 – October 18, 1973).
The “Vulgar Many”, is well described in BBC´s documentary “The Power of Nightmares – The Rise of the Politics of Fear”, from 2004, where Leo Strauss, among others, is a central person.
Personally, in all deference to you Saker, and with respect to all religions, skeptics, agnostics, science, and serious students, the very idea of a real entity of “devil/evil spirit” while there (may or may not be) an apparently all knowing being who is the primary cause of everything, is absurd. While, yes, even with that there certainly might be allegorical, mythical, etc. representations of the evil that exists apparently in the very fabric of all that is and ever will be in this system in which we currently inhabit may be somewhat valid. Life itself is a fall from grace, that seems to be one of it’s main purposes as far as I can tell. Call the devil what you will, the devil is you too. I mean this in all respect!
In our many, many discussions, we touched on this format. I am very happy that your decision to use a short Podcast, and the perfect topic chosen, came together with your plugging the book.
For this is the aspect of your mind and intellectual resources that attracts many of us. No bombast or agitprop pronunciations. Calm, precise, balanced and nuanced while driving, listening to music.
It is awesome.
The topic so perfect to the madness of Paris and San Bernardino, Turkey and the shoot down of the jet and the evil of blowing up the Russian airliner. The Evil One indeed.
It is almost incomprehensible to imagine a rock concert in which three young shooters destroy 500 lives, killing 130, crippling and scarring the others. But real Evil brings us to God.
If to question why, or to ask for protection, the challenge to our reason and our being is your topic.
By chance you have hit upon your life’s task and meaning. Guide along the dark highway. Keeper of the Light, as best you can.
Blessings on you and your family, Saker.
Great podcast and, even though I’m not traditionally religious, I totally sympathize with the Saker’s view of the darkness. The more I think about it the more I’m convinced that it is not as one dimensional as our societies condition us to accept. In many ways G.Orwell was describing demons in his books without actually using this word. I totally understand that describing things in those ancient terms can absolutely destroy one’s credibility but I appreciate the courage of those who doesn’t care about it and doesn’t hide behind acceptable (as in “credible”) terminology. Thank you!
The problem I see is not with the belief system as being allegory, metaphor, or similar, or even literally believing some aspects, but that when one portrays the struggle as being us pawns caught up in a battle between gods and demons it leaves little reason to bust our brains trying to understand what I consider to be the real underlying forces, or perhaps even to not assume agency for change in such a fatalistic context. Something like learning the causes of and how to treat disease if we accept that they are literally caused by demons invading our bodies. It’s not the beliefs, as such, but the implications of them if followed through. If god is running things than he sure doesn’t need an army of humans to help him out.
Methods to deal with possession by demons are not effective at treating brain dysfunction, chemical imbalances, or bacterial pathogens. One might argue that there is more behind disease than this current medical interpretation, and there well might be, but getting blood or antibiotics has saved many lives.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars
But in ourselves”
I see your message as an addition or rather an expansion of what I was trying to say. I think at the extreme edges of spirituality and science the language can almost be interchanged and still convey the same notions. Sometimes I simply appreciate more direct expressions because I don’t believe they actually simplifying things, on the contrary it gives much more dimension to what is happening in the world.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians 6:12King James Version (KJV)
Well, if that’s the case there is no point in my even trying to struggle — might as well try to try to make Mars disappear or stop the tides of the ocean, which power pale in comparison to Principalities.
blue, do a search on Red Jasper for its healing properties (it is a gemstone). Give it a try, you have nothing to lose, it’s not expensive. You have a point in struggling for your health, if nothing else. This is not off topic because Russians are very well educated about healing crystals (and pyramids) and they would understand this topic.
Sure this sounds all woo woo new agey but did you know that Peter the Great ordered his soldiers to sew Shungite stones into their knapsacks before the battle of Poltava? To help protect them in battle and win. Peter the Great is not exactly your stereotypical sensitive new age guy. You can’t prove that the gemstones made a difference in that battle, but you can’t say that it hurt either. In India, soldiers sewed Rubies into their skin for protection in battle.
Go for it, and let us know what happens. It’s fun to try new things. Pets always react very excitedly to gemstones of all kinds. It’s like catnip for cats. Animals can feel the positive energy.
Dear Saker and comrade seekers of truth, justice and peace,
I have read your blog for past nearly two years with great appreciation and often comfort in this mad world where clearly there is a struggle of good vs evil. This is my third post (the other two were brief).
As I’ve sought the truth of existence over 50+ years – and with a background in medicine and neuroscience, as well as a lifelong interest in history and philosophy, a leaning in my youth towards rationalism and materialism countered with a Roman Catholic upbringing – my views on the nature of reality have shifted according to what evidence I’ve come across. For a long time I thought “the Devil” a myth without ontological reality. However that has changed in the past couple of years. There are at very least powerful evil demonic entities/beings in this likely multidimensional Multiverse.
I would ask readers to do their own research. If you have a materialist view – consider, as the Platonists argued with the Atomists in ancient Athens – where are YOU in the non-conscious matter that makes up your neural tissue? If you have a strong religious faith – can we trust that the founders of that faith, the writers of those sacred texts – knew everything when the cosmology of their times postulated a geocentric universe with minimal consideration for the vastness of the Universe as we know it now? If you think in Newtonian or even Einsteinian physics – why are Einstein’s views on the absolute nature of the speed of light taken as holy writ, rather than as scientific theory? What of Tesla’s views – and why was the FBI so interested in grabbing and classifying Tesla’s writings, but not Einstein’s?
I have studied the science of “Near-Death Experiences” (NDE’s) and have had one myself. This blows apart the materialist explanation. Read the raw data at http://www.nderf.org See scientific investigations of this at http://www.iands.org and discussed at http://www.skeptiko.com or in scholarly books on the subject at Amazon.com .
Look up the work of Rupert Sheldrake http://www.sheldrake.org
The Shroud of Turin was “debunked” by carbon dating according to headline news in 1988 – as a “medieval forgery”. But a second carbon dating (and analysis of strange radiation in the cloth that appears to have formed the photonegative image) – carefully separated the original cloth from medieval repair cloth that was sewn in following some damage to the Shroud in a medieval fire – dates the Shroud to the 1st Century AD with an error of +/- a couple centuries. Thus the Shroud was “un-debunked”. Research this, it even made the corporate controlled mainstream media – though with much less fanfare than the debunking story 25 years earlier.
It is at least worth your thought: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/10631973/Turin-Shroud-may-date-from-time-of-Jesus.html
There really is evidence of “Luciferian” rituals amongst the elite, e.g. Alex Jones video of the “Cremation of Care” ritual – the burning of an effigy of a human baby to an owl God from ancient middle east – by invited elites of mainly men to “Bohemian Grove” in northern California each year. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5dHhvpHIjM Stuff I just would not have believed a few years ago. And movies like “Eyes Wide Shut” showing satanic type rituals of elite power-brokers.
Then there is this alleged video leaked from a high level Freemasonry ritual in Turkey: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread446968/pg1
With all that in mind, research the following and see where they lead you:
John Callahan + UFO , Disclosure Project , Stephen Greer , Sirius Disclosure , Citizens Hearing on Disclosure , Archons , Draco , Cosmic Disclosure + Corey Goode + David Wilcock , Cobra + Prepare for Change , Edgar Cayce + prophecy “Russia hope of the world” , Marian apparitions + future + Russia , Howard Storm + Life in the Universe , Thrive Movie + Foster Gamble .
Those topics will lead you to more.
My materialist self has long since been squashed by the weight of rational evidence.
We live in more than interesting times, it appears we are living in the greatest times in human history…
Has Pepsi broken with the cabal? I know Coca-Cola is evil on the teeth and the waistline, thought Pepsi was just the same. But what do you make of this??? – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RmSKT-9u_A
Great comment, Peter. If people really want to have their minds blown, read David Wilcock’s The Synchronicity Key, and his website called Divinecosmos.com. This guy is very interesting. He claims to be the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce, and the more you learn about him, the more you wonder if it might not be the truth. He does even resemble the Sleeping Prophet. Dick Cheney would probably like to shut him up, but, he seems to be under some kind of divine providence and protection. There is some laugh out loud funny stuff on that website! He attracts whistleblowers like flypaper for some reason. Must be his boyish charm.
Thank you for your detailed message and your links are very much appreciated. Not exactly on this subject but I think getting familiar with some of the books by Graham Hancock could help to crack few extra layers in this reality.
Also knowing how obsessed Nazis were with everything that can be classified as an Occult, and the fact that the majority of them ended up joining the American elites, building NASA, Monsanto (weaponized DNA) and a tone of things that are still classified etc, I’d say all of that is plenty enough to take this subject matter seriously. It also seems like they had a truly demonic obsession with destroying Russia and suppressing Orthodox Christianity. Though I think Hitler was simply a puppet in the hands of Zionist bankers.
BTW Any other book recommendations on the subject of history (like David Irving), Spirituality and Science and Orthodox Christianity would be also appreciated.
The Scole Experiment
A very interesting read……
You need to eliminate the background noise, and what are you using as mics? Sounds like it was recorded while driving in your car.
Sorry to fuss about audio technicalities and not comment on the content
Sounds like it was recorded while driving in your car.
That is because it was :-)
If you put the audio through a high pass filter (to remove frequencies below voice) with open source software such as audacity and then buff up the bass a bit after to compensate it *might sound good.
well said and I can agree to a large degree, but a bit vague.
However – we can nail “them” down much closer. Why no word on the Federal Reserve / BIS controlling almost all central banks worldwide?
What about certain familiy dynasties?
There are plenty facts: The Money Masters – Bill Still
As for the Federal Reserve: Only a side stage, but a quite interesting one.
Nobody can prove it, but the evidence is overwhelming:
Evidence The Titanic (in fact the Olympic) Was Sunk on Purpose (and with her certain persons)
Not wanting to go into detail, I do have some personal knowledge of things metaphysical. My explorations have convinced me that Evil (insane hatred and envy of the divinity and all living things) is very real. However, I do not believe there is an evil One – in the sense of a fallen archangel. Evil (opposition to divinity, life, and freedom) is best understood as an emergent product of the collective actions of twisted souls, none of which are particularly ancient or mighty. Having said that, most of modernity, (particularly the transhumanists of Silicon Valley who wish to live forever in their human bodies, or even download their souls into computers and robots) is evil. But their evil is childish and futile. As Jon Rappaport has pointed out, machines will never be able to house souls. And no matter how many stem cell infusions he gets, David Rockefeller, will eventually die and be judged.
Hindu elites cannot worship Devil, because in the 6000 years old traditions of Hinduism they never had any concept of Devil.
Devil is Iranian invention (Ahriman), which was borrowed by Judaism.
Think about that.
The Question of Theodices
There is no evidence of supernatural forces. And there is no need to refer to them to explain the phenomena. Or, to be more agnostic, where is the evidence?
This “there is no evidence…” is an oft used fiat statement that is blown away if you spend some time looking. Start with Rupert Sheldrake or Dean Radin or spend time trawling through the podcast transcripts at http://www.skeptiko.com
I’ve spent many decades looking, and there is no evidence for the vast majority of what people who talk about the supernatural say or believe, religious dogma, or the notions of some dualistic schism between material and non-material, neither of which are well defined. The studies of consciousness, quantum and particle physics, cosmology, and epistemology are still in the beginning stages. So people can ‘believe’ what they want, but I think over 99% of them ask the wrong questions to start with and jump to completely unwarranted conclusions which barely even make semantic sense. About the only reliable system of predictive knowledge is essentially evidence-based science, and even then it keeps revising itself (instead of being cast in concrete like religious dogma). The word ‘god’ doesn’t even really mean anything.
I respect your opinions, it is important to always be a bit agnostic, to be open-minded. No-one has a monopoly on the truth.
If the ET contact stuff is true then even advanced highly spiritual species say there is a Supreme Creator being of which we are all a part, as in drops of a vast ocean of Consciousness. Yet the full nature of that Being is beyond knowing.
A dominant paradigm conveys the assumption of truth. Materialism has dominated science for 3 centuries, and western culture for over a century. Thus paranormal evidence is socially handicapped by a priori assumptions of normality. Be truly open minded and please explore some of the suggested links.
I can tell you the brain and consciousness equation is a total mystery still to early 21st century mainstream science. The whistleblowers from the deep state black ops say the deep state science is decades advanced in mind control devices. They imply there is a conspiracy to support the materialist paradigm to keep the masses from challenging the elite.
Weird – yes it sounds that after a life in the mainstream paradigm. Go look for yourself. Take a step back – the whole fact there is a Universe and life in the first place and you as conscious beings is a mystery. Wonder and seek.
Peter from Oz
Be a bit agnostic. Amen to that. It’s a mystery. And Amen to that.
Blue your knowledge is limited. Try to show some humility by prefacing some of your definitive statements with: “in my opinion” because you don’t have the answers either. Saker says that he has experienced or witnessed things that convinces him that demons exist (literally). It is arrogant and perhaps ignorant to dismiss that. I will not dismiss it, to do so implies that I am superior to him and patronizingly know better despite his first hand experience and my lack of it. I don’t intend to blind myself to any kind of truth because of preconceptions; that’s what fundamentalists do.
I am a scientist and to me science, true science, is beautiful. That does not preclude me from looking at the current state of scientific inquiry with a critical eye, for example:
As to science not being dogmatic, you are both right and wrong: in theory science is not supposed to be dogmatic (everything can be questioned even established Laws in light of new evidence), in practice it has become increasingly so (because ignorant, spiritually & emotionally undeveloped, egotistical mediocre members of our species corrupt everything they touch, even beautiful science). Go read up Prof. Sheldrakes works and he will demonstrate to you just how narrow minded and intolerant science has become (like an orthodoxy or rigid religion, persecuted scientists and censorship akin to the catholic churches treatment if Galileo).
A small example is the treatment meted out to the Australian doctors that defined the cure for ulcers based on their contention that the disease was caused by a bacteria: they were systematically ridiculed, banned from conferences, and persecuted by the established scientific community that dogmatically stuck to their ignorant views that gastric ulcers were chronic, parasympathetic in nature or autoimmune and couldnt possibly be caused by a bacterial pathogen (which is the cause H. Pylori).
I have heard (I admit, via hearsay, the following case although i havent had the opportunity to verify this personally) The famous case of Louis Pasteur (of pasteurized milk fame!) who contended that entities too small to be seen (microbes) may be responsible for sickness. From what I heard from a collegue, there were actual attempts by other scientists to commit Pasteur to an insane asylum for having postulated “unseen” entities as being responsible for sickness. The microscope proved Pasteur right.
My speculative meditation for today was:
‘observation is a reflexive, relational operator, perhaps bidirectional’.
Personally I see no contradiction between a hypothesis of consciousness/information being the prime stuff of existence, and material as being simply a subset of that ‘soup’ bound by observation and feedback mechanisms. No need for god, etc. to explain ESP sort of phenomena or information out of the space-time context. That’s about as far as I’ve gotten in 60 years, and it isn’t far because I first had to waste time wading through and throwing off all the nonsense people indoctrinated me with early on.
Do you want someplace to get into what I mean by that? Maybe the discussion group for the journal of consciousness studies? You even find some of my writing there.
Or do you want to present some actual evidence for the existence of god, demons, et al beyond anecdotal subjective reports (on par with those who said they saw the sun go around the sky in a day’), or how such statements contribute to the task at hand of defeating the imperialists? People have ‘seen’ all sorts of things that are not real, so seeing or experiencing something is not evidence. If you are a scientist you should understand the difference.
I responded to a comment saying that if you look for evidence of supernatural forces you will find it. I’ve spent 60 years looking, and it’s not there, much less evidence of god or a celestial hierarchy as spoken of in religions. It’s a nice mythology, and it has meaning in it and is useful, but when people give this ‘seek and you will find’ business, especially for some particular mythology, or that I have to first have ‘faith’ to find it, or tell me I’m ignorant or too prideful to see it or understand, forget about it. People are entitled to their own beliefs and thoughts, but not to my beliefs and thoughts, and not to say something which is highly subjective, ill-defined, and in contradiction to a bunch of other religious believers, is objective, universal, and people who don’t find their truth haven’t looked for it — and is often a wonderful tactic for setting people to war.
I looked Shieldrake’s site — some interesting ideas but nothing that special or unique there. These ideas in various forms have been around for many centuries. Similar with Radin and noetic sciences (which I think I’ve run into in the past). But that has a long way to go and none of it concludes demons and forces of evil are responsible for fascism, or religious dogma, is objectively valid. Show me an old religious scripture that explains even how a vacuum tube, or a campfire, works and maybe I’ll sit up and take notice. As for material vs spiritual I have yet to find how that division has any supportable evidence for it or intelligible definitions.The epistemology for that stuff isn’t there.
Ewan, your question here “were is the evidence?” is logically a contradiction in therms, having already stated that you believe there is “no evidence of supernatural forces” and hence no God or Devil or afterlife.
What concrete evidence do you have to prove that there’s no evidence of non-physical and divine forces at play in universal reality?
Espousing here whatever you’ve chosen to believe in to be true about non-physical reality is neither evidence nor makes it a fact or true.
It’s your own narrow mindedness and closed off belief systems that your trying to impose on others here and those that have personally perceived of and have experienced none psychical realities and have faith in a divinely higher order, cause and calling than your own cynical and nihilist views betray.
I challenge you to do some research on all the “evidence” of the overwhelming number of people that have crossed over in “near death experiences” to the “other side” (or the “supernatural” as you call it) and explain to them why and how their own experiences and the insights and knowledge they returned with was not valid and real.
You are not even close to genuinely being “Agnostic” here, since according to the dictionary they are “a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.
The key words here are “neither faith (in) nor (a) disbelief in God”.
You have every right to believe in whatever you want to, but being as how your pushing your own agenda here of disbelief, based on your ignorance of and your predisposed rejection and denial of any possible “evidence” that might challenge your beliefs, your being disingenuous in your questioning here.
Indeed “explaining” any physical and psychological “phenomena” in the world can and should by all rights go deeper than what’s merely on the face and surface of things.
It would be more sincere and humble of you to just admit that you personally lack the knowledge or experience needed to make any decisions either way and are genuinely open to answers.
Instead of covertly insulting the premises of the authors and some readers here faith and belief in something more and greater than you do.
Otherwise present your own “evidence” that unequivocally proves that neither the “supernatural” nor God actually exists, instead of asking others to do your work.
Anyway which way, we are all destined to soon enough cross that fateful bridge and learn to know with certainty for all eternity what we now don’t know that we don’t know but believe we know just because we’ve been told so.
I’m afraid it’s the supernaturalists bear the burden of proof, otherwise we would spend all eternity trying to disprove all sorts of supernatural beings. I readily admit only a modified agnosticism: we can’t acquire any evidence about what we say there may be beyond our universe, we can only try to gain knowledge of what there is within our universe and can’t infer from that anything about anything beyond. There are of course lots of things we don’t know – if the universe began with a singularity, we can’t know anything beyond that singularity, we don’t know what dark energy or dark matter might be, we don’t know if supersymmetry is an accurate description of the world of sub-atomic particles, we still don’t know and are nowhere near knowing how nervous systems generate consciousness, our grasp of economics as applied in nature and to human societies is still shaky etc. The only method we have so far devised for accumulating reliable knowledge is science, the institution and the community that works within it. So if we want to find out about those things that are knowable, we must rely on science. And we must accept that some things are unknowable by us (we are after all fairly puny organisms on a tiny speck in a corner of an undistinguished galaxy). Ignorance on its own provides no basis for speculation. I therefore asked, politely I thought, what supernaturalists think the evidence is that allows them to make their extravagant inferences.
You did propose one example: near-death experiences are just that i.e. near death, when the brain is closing down – if you take a look at the findings of neuroscience, funny things happen as the various systems close down, as those who have out of body experiences and those who regain full consciousness after nearly dying can testify. It is also always worth bearing in mind that individual testimony is notoriously fallible, even about what we think we experience (again there is a great deal of research on this).
It is also always worth bearing in mind that individual testimony is notoriously fallible,
That is cliche nonsense and an unprovable assertion. What you are saying Saker is unreliable in his own experience before you even have clue about what his experience was (which he hasn’t revealed). You’ve already dismissed it based on his drawn conclusion which clashes with your belief system.
If we were to take the above highlighted statement to its logical conclusion then any observation a scientist made in his lab would be unreliable and subjective. If the scientist said I saw the particle appear at 0.1nanosec, we’d have dismiss it as an unreliable subjective experience, as for the printout from his instruments: anyone can print anything, as to reproducibility: the same applies to near death experiences and other individual testimonies, despite being reproduced by thousands of individuals from all over the world from unrelated cultures we must dismiss this reproducible evidence because to admit it would challenge our current ignorance and arrogance. The willful stupidity of human beings and their attendent hypocrisy knows no limit.
Individual testimony is notoriously fallible. Not a cliche. Not nonsense. Demonstrated again and again. We are organisms with limited cognitive functions that evolved to allow us to survive in our limited environment. Even when honest and not self-deluding, we are subject to error in perception and reasoning. This is why, as you rightly say, we need theories generally accepted by those qualified to judge and evidence that can be replicated that is consistent with those theories, or, in the instances scientists live for, contradict the theories. Knowledge is difficult to acquire.
In answer to your… “I’m afraid it’s the super-naturalists (that) bear the burden of proof”…..
I can only reply that if your open to investigate it, there’s an overwhelmingly abundant amount of documented “evidence” of the of personal paranormal and spiritual experiences of non physical phenomena.
However as for furnishing verifiable “proof” of it, that’s of course limited to scientific research and studies that have actually been conducted into paranormal phenomena, of which their is much less but still not an insignificant amount of material available. Being as most “rationalist” academic scientists appear to hold similarly prejudicial views towards metaphysics as you do and refuse to investigate or do research into the none physical reality.
Besides theirs no real money in it and few research grants to spark much interest. Excepting for the military whom have done extensive scientific research into such areas as remote viewing for their own nefarious purposes. Conversely modern physicists are ever increasingly coming face to face with “supernatural” reality in their explorations deeper into the realm of matter and energy.
My reference to “near death experiences” being but one of many phenomena, the name of which is actually a misnomer, since the patients where actually flat lined and medically & clinically declared physically brain dead while they had their out of body other worldly experiences.
This also includes among the multitude of testimonials the experiences of brain neurosurgeons themselves who’s lives had fundamentally and irreversibly changed as a result of their own experiences on “the other side” of the only material reality we believe exists.
Indeed each individuals personal experience varied greatly according to their own predisposed belief systems but nevertheless their are discernible commonalities in all of their recorded experiences, such as being drawn thru a spiraling tunnel of white light and having a review and reckoning of their own lives to date at the behest of and with the aid of other out of body entities, sometimes recognized. And in many cases accounts of “out of body” viewing their own corpses surrounded by doctors and relatives, and on return able to repeat verbatim exactly what was spoken about them after the termination of their life here and who they witnessed attending their corpse at the time.
Similar testimonials of profound revelations and spiritual awakenings and transformations have been recorded throughout history both by saints and all manner of religious leaders of many disciplines as well as followers of a faith and from simply ordinary people some of whom had little or no faith or beliefs in any kind of spiritual existence.
Edgar Casey for example being just one of countless individuals that have accessed the spiritual realms of universal knowledge predicted in 1930 that Russia would become the “hope of the world” and foresaw that in the future “the world will forever change” as a result of a major “earthquake in Japan.”
Einstein himself (an intuitive and humanist) said that he sought “to know the thoughts of God”.
While I agree with you that events can be analyzed strictly on a phenomenal level, that only furnishes us with answers as to how such events happen and not with the deeper psychological causes and spiritual meanings of why they happen in the first place, which is what the author of this articular as well as others here are attempting to address and wrestle with.
If that’s not in your interests that’s fine, just don’t ask for any proof of evidence from others if your not willing to consider it. It’s said that “The proof is in the Pudding” but you can’t taste and ever experience it if your not even willing to take a bite into it. It doesn’t matter in any case because none of us here have the power to change reality – whatever we choose to believe in.
Even if at some point it could be established that ‘non-physical’ ESP sort of phenomena exists (which has not been done) that no more establishes the existence of god, demons, etc. than establishing that radio waves are coming from space establishes that they are coming from some intelligent alien species.
Indications of ESP fall far short of what is acceptable as solid evidence of it as interpreted by many people. What I’ve experienced may be nothing more than inconsistency of my normal perceptions of naive reality regarding the nature of spacetime — or perceptual glitches within my own sensory, nervous, and cognitive systems, which I have noticed has misled me any number of other times. It’s easy to do a web search and find any number of audio and visual illusions which are quite convincing — as well as people who are completely wrong about the nature of the current politics and economics.
In one of the later chapters of the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna reveals his divine form to the great warrior Arjun. Arjun sees innumerable universes and myriad life forms being born out of the Supreme Being on the one hand while on the other countless worlds and living beings are swallowed up and perish at Its hands. The Gita is perhaps the only philosophical work which posits that both evil and good are different aspects of the Supreme Consciousness, which manifests Itself in every part and particle of the universe. In a more evolved human being, the higher aspect or good predominates and vice versa. The corollary is that even in the most vile and degraded individual, there exists a spark of the Divine. Given the right circumstances, this divinity can manifest itself. Thus the bandit Ratnakar became the great sage Valmiki who composed the Ramayana. A coward transforms himself into a hero when his family is in danger. Evil gives a direction to the good just like the constraining banks of a river which impel it to flow towards the great ocean, for without them the water would dissipate and not be able to complete its journey.
Thus, the essential nature of every being is divinity which is trying to to manifest itself, and this progressive manifestation is the cosmic evolutionary journey towards the Supermind. Evil (the lower aspect) is temporary whereas good (the higher aspect) is more permanent since otherwise the purpose of evolution (from the impermanent towards the permanent) would be negated. Ultimately, both good and evil are resolved (I.e. cease to exist) in the Supermind. But as long we exist in the human form, it is our bounden duty to combat evil (as instructed by Krishna to Arjun) since that would be a manifestation of our higher nature and also a pointer to our location on the evolutionary ladder.
The Upanishads say “sarva khalvidam Brahman”, I.e. everything, which includes both good and evil, is an expression of Brahman, the Supreme Consciousness. And this Consciouness is contained within all of us (in an unmanifest state) similar to the enfoldment of the entire information of an object on each and every point of an holographic plate, which is a metaphor for the philosophy of the Advaita Vedanta (non dualism or undivided wholeness) whose essence can be succinctly captured in the expression “the part contains the whole.”
Without Judas Iscariot, there would be no Christianity, without Manthara no Ramayana, and without Shakuni no Mahabharata.
Also worth a look on the UFO/ Secret Space Program front is http://www.exopolitics.com
There you can find an article speculating if Russia’s electronic communications blocking technology has come from benevolent ETs and a positive alliance side of the human secret space program. See: http://exopolitics.org/is-russia-using-weapons-developed-with-extraterrestrial-help-in-syrian-civil-war/
If this sounds too way out, then check out Medvedev telling a reporter that ETs are real and the Russian presidency is in contact with them. When this interview was screened on Sky News in UK it was interrupted to go to a hospital about Princess of Wales routine pregnancy check. Medvedev is referring to a serious Russian documentary about UFOs when he refers to “Men in Black”: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NesEALNPLTs
Peter I hate to say this , but both medcedev and the reporter were laughing and smirking during the interview.
I used to not believe in evil or the devil. But look into pedofelia rings and how they actually exist in this country and are protected by the government. Hollywood, congress, the deep state in general pray on children and the guilable public cares nothing.
There is a new movie Krampus by the black magicians in Hollywood which highlights the new anti-Christ movement focused on Christmas. Yes, there is evil and it has intelligence, will and purpose. The allegory of the book of Job, however, makes it clear that there is a higher power which answers the inquiring,principled, impassioned intellect and sets things right. Justice is as embedded in the warp and woof of the world as is injustice. And as the Bhagavad Gita points out, the highest yoga/union is the yoga of compassion.
Freemasons: The Roman Church accuses them of Deism, or possibly Naturalism; Protestant churches, of Satanism. If they’ve taken over the world, they’d better decide which it is.
I can’t imagine Mozart was a Satanist. Was Tolstoy’s well-meaning chump Pierre Bezukhov part of a worldwide conspiracy? In Britain, it’s mainly been a back-scratching society, a slightly more sinister version of the Golf Club with trouser leg rolled up.
Let’s not blow our credibility with Dan Brownian whimsy.
OK, there was meant to be a point beyond mere snarkiness. There is surely enough work to be done analysing how power is acquired and exercised and debating how things can be managed better, without being distracted by nebulous theories that add nothing to the practicalities (Wall St. lobbies in Washington for laws that suit… – nothing of any practical import is added by saying Wall St.is the representative in finance of the dark power that is freemasonry which is one of the Devil’s front organisations etc. etc.- it still lobbies in the way it does and its influence can be curbed by such and such practical measures, not by exorcism or whatever).
“The Pentagon reportedly wants the White House to approve the setting up of a chain of new military bases across Africa, Southwest Asia and the Middle East that would serve as “hubs” for conducting anti-terrorism missions.
The New York Times reports that top DoD military officials want the network of bases to serve “Special Operations troops and intelligence operatives who would conduct counterterrorism missions” against groups like the Islamic State, ensuring an “enduring” American military presence in several regions overseas.”
hmmm, USA supporting terrorism in order to have bases around the world supposedly to fight them, but maybe clandestinely use them for other nefarious means???????? world domination by other means—–you adpot those means, you become that yourself.

I was always fascinated by the Book of Revelations when it talked about the “mark of the beast”. It
seems to me that in a broad sense, however way you may interpret it, this is what the end-game is if
you think of the world financial system. Just to paraphrase; all those without the “mark” won’t be able
to conduct trade, buy, or sell.
Todays economic sanctions maybe used against broad targets such as nation states (like Russia) but tomorrow they will be used against individuals persons. Just read about the dissenting drone operators whose personal credit cards and financial accounts have been frozen. Enjoyed the podcast.
