Hello

Thank you for all you do, as a Neil Kramer fan he led me here, Im glad he did....

To quote you
"When I woke I knew that he was referring not just to me but to all of us. This realm I had woken into was the real “dead zone.” And yet, although I do believe this to be in some sense true, I also believe that the difference between the realm we are in now and that in which the dead “reside” is that here we have the option of change, while the dead do not. They are in Eternity, where nothing can ever change, because everything is in the eternal Now. So the “writing” of our lives that we take into death stays fixed upon our souls; it is only while in the realm of life—of individual self-ness—that we have the option of changing or erasing the marks which we have engraved on our souls, through the acts of living."

Beautiful, Just beautiful.

Hey Aeolus this is my problem maybe you can give me a cosmic heads up.

You know lately I have been wanting to really get my life together.. you know drive a car, run a business, keep my girlfriend the normal everyday stuff you know?

But everytime I read this blog I get a sense of

"what the hell is the point in all of this?"

I mean I used to be a bit of a stoner bum who did nothing except sit around and watch cars go by from the bench on the mountain in my city.

Now I am just like a turtle neck wearing suave de vivre type dude and I really just feel like getting stoned right now.

like damnit man!
Whats the point of life!!

Cool story for you recently happened to me,
Downtown here in Montreal there is a street called Mont-Royal avenue, its the avenue that leads up to the Mountain. Anyways this street has a gothic boutique, you know the people who dress all in black and wear leather and black nail polish etc.

Right next to this botique was a building that had burnt down and was just a total wreckage....
across from the botique was a porno video store that you go into, pay the fee and can jerk off inside of.

Yeah well, I kept on looking tot he pornshop, then the boutique and then the burnt down building and I had a kind of awake vision of the "dark sides clutch" on the babylon burning reality we are living in...

and it just fucked my day up.

I get these attacks of futile despair that make me want to just sit on the curb and laugh like a mad man.

Enjoyed the interview. Also, Id be very interested to hear your perspective on Kotze's latest posting at "The Blob" concerning the "9/11 mega-ritual/waterg8". It's certainly a mindful.

Thanks.

aeolus kephas said...

yes i read the post and enjoyed it; noted JK's reference to "Masonic sorcerers" also - maybe I will compose a response...?

Collin said...

patterns, patterns patterns...

Did the interviewer use some sort of voice modification? His voice sounded a little electronic. Either way, great interview and I enjoyed it. I'm glad you're appearing on other shows and gaining some exposure.

aeolus kephas said...

thanks Kim - far as i know that is Greg's natural baritone!

i am sure he'd be amused to know that he sounds like he's been "modified"!

Masonic Sorcery...Ma/Son...I(eye)...see/sea...

The more I dig into the brick pile of cultures, whether that be American (Ameru-can?) Indian (en/Dios?), Meso-potato/Some-Aryan, Chem-etic, whatever...I find all of the semiotic fields sown with MS seeds...I guess this comes from free-king Atlanis, whether that be our deeply transpersonal programming/a "muts and dolts" pre-deluvian culture or whatever...it's like, "oh maya gosh...can't I escape from this web of MightyMasonry? I mean, dANg...even our lANguage is permeated, numerically encoded...oUR Genes and jinn...and the STARS, and other ourANic blobs...

My university so-called education, and its system, is patterned on the three degrees...my military service (thanks poverty) Mithraically-Masonically mediated...my sijjils for service and trade...how can one help but "drink the Kool-Aid (is that perhaps, dia-LUX - thru-light?).

I noticed you (AK) emphasized the fACT that you're not associated with the Masonic Sorcery or any of their ill-Lustrious brothers...but hey...HOW does one live in the belly of the Beast and NOT get a little of that in yOUR "I"? Maybe the best we can do is notice...and not get khan-ed into paying even more dues...or blood...or loosh...

Maybe there's some value in a healthy dose of glossolalia at times just to sort of wash things out?

Peace, Zane

Man, slow down Aeolus. That last podcast (the montage) contains so many details worthy of better examination.

You said around the 24:00 minute mark that you have beliefs that change. This sounds more like ideas. Beliefs are ideas that one maintains, probably because of some kind of insecurity about that idea, in a fixed or overblown manner. I prefer a notion of possibility factors rather than looking for yes/no determinations.

Skipping to the 48:00 minute mark, Greg mentioned the issue of ‘getting there’ together or as individuals. I say we get there together and here’s why. First off, consensus is broad by nature. Also, my observation has been that smart people are more threatened by a questioning of their beliefs and pretences than are regular people. It seems that smart folk are more invested in the current forms of understanding than are simple folk. The smart people have defined their lives (and made their money) through their better understanding of these forms. So they are driven both unconsciously and consciously to maintain the existing system. Whereas the more simple folk are unconsciously driven by this system, but consciously would be plenty happy to live in a different way.

Also it’s more satisfying to find fault with society’s shapers than it is to find yet another way to blame the victims.
