Random Anti-Gravity Thoughts Written in Rebellion Against Glass Graves (Pt. 2 of 2)

According to Western occult folklore, the 72 “Goetic demons that King Solomon trapped in a brass bottle following the construction of his temple played an instrumental role in him building it. Likewise, the sperm released through male ejaculate can be likened to a “Goetic” intelligentsia that assists in constructing the Solomonic temple of man or womb-man.  Since we are on the topic, it is important to point out that the term “Goetia” is actually a misnomer.

Goetia is a Latin word that simply means “sorcery.” To refer to this system of sorcery as “Goetia” presupposes that it originated with people who spoke Latin as their native language. However this life science did not originate among any native Latin-speaking people. It is widely believed that the literary foundation for what is generally recognized as the Goetia is The Lesser Key of Solomon, a book of spells in which credible authorities cannot even agree who the author was.

They don’t know its author because the entire book is a European interpretation of an alien spiritual science that was introduced by a foreign ethnic group, not any one individual who resided in Europe. A group of southern Europeans came together and decided that they would call it the Goetia, but that’s not what it is. Solomonic sorcery was introduced to Europe by a group of West Africans known as Moors who invaded Southern Europe over 1,300 years ago. 

This re-codified African sorcery is more familiarly recognized today in aspects of Vodou or Obeah.  It is a science that has been preserved by Stellar Men and Women who reside in Haiti and the English-speaking Caribbean which is formally known as the West Indies. Much of Europe’s Medieval “demonology” is actually a mischaracterization of West African life sciences. I highly recommend the book Secret Societies by Arkon Daraul which explores the mysteries of Al-Aswad, “The Black Man,” and the witch’s Sabbath in considerable detail.

White witches were put to death during the inquisitions of medieval Europe because they worshipped the Black man, the Moor, as the living personification of God on earth. The name “Baphomet” is a mispronunciation of “Abu Fihamat” which means “Father of Understanding” in Arabic. World-renowned  Sufi scholar Idries Shah of India speaks very frankly about this particular subject in his book, The SufisTherein, he specifies that the mysterious Baphomet is actually a reference to the Black man. I wrote an article about this for my magazine nine years ago. I think that I will republish a revised version on this site in the near future. 

When the 72 Solomonic intelligences are not evoked for the purpose of procreation they should remain confined to the brass vessel that human biologists would identify as the male scrotum.  Pro-Creation is not limited to the creation of physical bodies. It may also include the willed creation of one’s preferred circumstances in life.

Nevertheless, as I said earlier, the television is for the most part a coffin for your mind. I say this because the more that you invest your mind in the characters and programs currently broadcasted by the major networks, the further you close the lid on your own imagination. Your remote control is literally a key to the gates of a mental cemetery. This is why you constantly misplace your remote in your couch and other parts of the house.  This happens because your pre-conscious mind knows that you don’t really want to experience mental death.  You genuinely want to live so that you can expand your imagination and experience the natural abundance that life has in store for you.

I prefer the term “preconscious mind” more than “subconscious mind” because the latter seems to imply that you CAN’T obtain knowledge of things that exist just below the threshold of your awareness.  However, if we understand the evolutionary nature of human consciousness, then we realize that we will EVENTUALLY obtain awareness of those things that we are not fully conscious of at the present moment.

All men and women who have accomplished anything in life that is worth remembering or celebrating first envisioned those accomplishments in their minds before they worked towards making them tangible realities. This statement will not be disputed if it is clearly understood. Your Television tells you what you should envision, and thereby robs you of any opportunity that you would have had to cultivate your own vision.  

Show me a man or woman without any imagination and I’ll show you a dead man walking. When I hear people say the zombie is a product of African superstition, that doesn’t really exist, I already know that they are speaking in ignorance. What else would you call a person who lives their life with no true sense of purpose? You would call them nothing less, and nothing more, than a zombie. Once we recognize our purpose, we must strive to mythologize our lives. Mythologizing your own life does not necessarily entail reading tons of books on comparative world mythology, although these books will greatly assist you in that endeavor. Joseph Cambell’s work is pretty good.

It’s really about having the foresight and the imagination to look at the circumstances surrounding your life and casting yourself in a story in which you come out the undisputed winner. This brings to mind the cover for the Bob Marley & The Wailers album, Confrontation.  In your life you are playing the role of Bob Marley, while the obstacles you face can be symbolized by the dragon that he is murdering on the album cover. To make your inspiring story into a reality you have to passionately think about it and then work towards making it a reality on 3rd density (the plane of earth, air and fire).

You can even use your iPod or MP3 player and put together a little soundtrack for the blockbuster biopic that you are directing in your head.  “Hate Me Now,” by the rapper Nas is a good start in my opinion. So is “I Know,” off of the Bob Marley album that I just mentioned. You may have your own musical preferences, and that’s fine with me. It’s your movie. It’s your script. So, write your story as you see fit.

As a young child growing up, one of my favorite cartoons was Voltron. Sometimes my parents would come and pick me up from elementary school with my younger sisters and we would go out together. This usually meant that I would miss Voltron.  When we got home, I usually couldn’t stop thinking about how I had missed an episode of my favorite cartoon. However, I was fortunate enough to have grown up in an environment that fostered an imagination.

At that point, I didn’t have any Voltron toys to make up for my loss, so what I would do is draw the “mighty robot” on a piece of construction paper, and a ro-beast on another. I would then color them both in, cut them out, and make them fight. Some of the most memorable Voltron battles from my childhood were not from the cartoon. They involved the paper figurines that I made myself. Some people might say that this sounds corny, but my imagination is what made the experience pleasurable and real for me.

Parents should not buy their children too many video games. Young children need to engage in hands-on activities that force them to develop their motor skills and generate images of their own choice in their heads. Children should never be discouraged from daydreaming. Instead they should be encouraged to share what they have been daydreaming about.  This plants the seed in the child’s mind that what they think about genuinely matters. There are many brilliant adults who live severely compromised lives, because they were taught as children that they were stupid and that what they thought was not important. As a result, they sell themselves short and fail to live out their life’s calling.

In college I remember reading the James Joyce novel A Portrait of An Artist as a Young Man and having a hard time putting it down because the day dreaming boy, who is the book’s main character, reminded me of myself as a child in some ways.  He would take the most basic, most mundane experiences from his everyday life and mentally transform them into something exciting, colorful, and mysterious.

Great music feeds this kind of imagination. Music videos destroy it. I remember the first time I heard the remix to “Blow Your Mind,” which was the first single off of Redman’s first album, Whut Thee Album. It was the summer of 1992 and I was on the verge of starting the eighth grade. DJ Red Alert had played this remix which literally gave me a mental orgasm when I heard it. Up until that point, I had never heard anything quite like it.

When the song transitions into the vocal sample immediately after the first verse, you can literally feel yourself expanding into a higher dimension of reality. You have to hear it on a powerful sound system to really get the full effect of what I’m talking about. I used the sample as a point of reference when I first read about Aleister Crowley’s notion of the Chaos Realm and Universe B.

Later on I learned that rapper and producer Erick Sermon sampled Parliament Funkadelic’s “Theme From the Black Hole,” which served as a sonic bridge that connected the song’s verses.  That song, along with EPMD’s “Crossover,” which was also released in the summer of 1992, were the first great hip hop songs that I can readily recall that did not use coherent vocal samples for hooks. This sampling technique made the songs that much more powerful. The vocal samples were soulful, but they are also indecipherable to the logical mind, which appeals directly to the preconscious mind.

RZA (“Heaven’s Sake) and The Heatmakerz (“Purple Haze”) employed Chipmunk soul variations of this production style in subsequent years. I think that Erick Sermon is a highly underrated hip hop producer.  I think that he and RZA were the first to bring other worldly imagination to hardcore hip hop production. You can listen to their instrumentals and float off into alternate realities.

Nevertheless, I was very disappointed when I saw the music video for the Blow Your Mind remix. The video fell way short of capturing the song’s personality. Before the video came out, I would listen to the song on my Walkman, and create a music video in my own head that was visually creative. When I saw the actual music video, it made the song less enjoyable for me because it was so lame.  The other videos Redman did for that album were classics, but “Blow Your Mind,” shouldn’t have had a music video.  Not at that time.

Musically, it was ahead of its time and I don’t think the video directors knew what to do with it to match that level of creativity visually. If the music video director was also an occultist then it may have worked. I have had similar experiences with many other songs since this one. The images that you generate in your mind’s eye are usually better than what is broadcasted to you via a television screen. If you disagree with me on this point, it is probably because you lack imagination. When your TV has you feeling like a mortified slave, generate anti-gravity thoughts in rebellion against glass graves.
