The Machine-Planet: Our future? Darth Vader as Ahriman

From 'New View' Magazine. (Anthroposophic magazine). Not available on the internet.


The Machine-Planet: Our future?
by Ingo Hoppe
If one-sided developments are thought through to the end, grotesque pictures arise, which reveal essential spiritual beings. In the following article, pictures of this kind are brought out of the Science Fiction myth Star Wars and are discovered again in phenomena of the High-Tech industry, whereby a similarity is revealed in their essential nature. The first Star War films are already a thing of the past, but their mythology still lives on. Not only in the latest film, which was shown everywhere last year; but also in countless comics, toy-figures and computer games its central figures live on and fascinate millions of people. Even if one does not know that George Lucas (the Director) is reported to be well versed in many of the books of Rudolf Steiner, one can find confirmation of this at every step.
The 'Death-Star'
Whether in medicine or in robot-guided automobile production, whether in the entertainment industry or in daily life, everywhere the machine grows increasingly more dominant. To people like Bill Gates (head of Microsoft)1 it seems perfectly justified to wish to be allowed to connect up with cables and networks as many areas of life as possible, with the greatest possible speed and thoroughness, and computerise them totally. The Earth, encircled by satellites in ever greater numbers, becomes ever more tightly enwoven into the world-wide telecom and computer networks. Huge cities are constantly expanding, entire countries are transformed into deserts by industry, and cultural landscapes that have evolved over many centuries are criss-crossed by eight-lane highways, telegraph masts and television towers. Scarcely a family can be found that can do without the omnipresent entertainment machine, the television. And now, with gene-technology, living nature is also to be forced into the straight-jacket of mechanistic manipulation. If this development is thought through to the end, and if one assumes that it is the only developmental tendency of mankind, then it is plain to see what its final consequence would be: the environmental destruction of living nature in favour of the total mechanisation of all aspects of life.
If the individual is asked his/her opinion, scarcely anyone at all would seriously wish for this consequence. And yet millions of human beings act from day to day as though this very thing were their most earnest desire. Even though the individual does not wish it consciously, the inherent dynamic of the collective strives with clear goal-directedness towards a machine-planet. Everyone is opposed to it, but all are actively involved. Although human beings do not actually want total mechanisation - they may not always be aware of this but genuine reflection can raise it to consciousness - they nevertheless do everything that is needed to bring it about. To do something, indeed even, in a certain sense, to will it when one does not really want it, means that it is not the actual self of the human being that is behind the willing. It means that this will does not come from the human being, and that therefore something non-human wills it in him or her. Where, then, does the will come from, if it does not come from me? It must be something that is not me, but which nevertheless has the capacity to will. But willing in the true sense is something that only a Being can do: something that has at least an inner psychic nature; a dead object cannot will anything. From this it follows, therefore, that Beings must will in the human being, when, in a dull state of consciousness, he or she wills something that in their innermost being they cannot want (or will).
Advertising strategists stir up this foreign will within the human being on a daily basis, through their manipulation of the unconscious. Now the Being who in the human being strains in the direction of a machine-planet, a process greatly aided by the constant suggestive attacks of advertising, bears in anthroposophical terminology the name Ahriman. The ahrimanic beings "…invade the unconscious of the human being, they swarm into the will-life, the life of the metabolism and limb system. They are that race of spiritual beings who wish to instil into the human being a special interest in everything mineral-material, who wish to instil into him an interest in everything, for example, that is externally mechanical, machine-like". 2
Also connected with this is the environmental destruction of all that has arisen from the great developmental cycles of the Earth in the past through the divine creation of the living kingdoms of nature: "They ... would like the world of the animals to disappear, the physical human world to disappear, the plant world to disappear. Of the mineral realm they would wish only the physical laws to remain, but in particular they wish that human beings should be removed from the Earth; and they would wish to build a new Saturn [this means an extra-terrestrial planet - Ingo Hoppe] consisting only of machines, a new world of nothing but machines. The world would then continue in this way." 2 One of the biggest dealers in technology in Germany, the 'Saturn' company, has designed a sales-brochure which speaks of "artificial intelligence", portrays a 'Saturn' planet, and offers "nothing but machines" for sale. This appears to be highly effective as an advertisement.
Star Wars and their Spiritual Background
It is not easy for the modern person to accept the existence of spiritual beings. And yet, half the world's population rushes to see films like Star Wars, which is a veritable 'stomping-ground' full of pictorial representations of spiritual facts. What is the reason for this? Why are people so interested in these tales? Is it merely the action, and the appeal of fantastic make-believe? This is most unlikely. Whoever has entered deeply into art can recognise that any work of artistic fantasy awakens a heightened interest when it also contains truth. And the machine-planet in Star Wars is an exact image of what humanity, as we have shown, is so busy working towards, without wanting to. In the cinema the viewers stare in horror at the death-star of evil, and have no idea that in real life they are working continually at its realisation. Could this be why the horror-effect is so great?
This horror then increases enormously when the strangely dehumanised Being appears, who possesses paranormal faculties and seems to be inextricably linked with the machine-planet, permeating and controlling it as a mighty power. His name is Darth Vader. Far-fetched as this may appear to the reader, it is nevertheless so: Darth Vader is an exact science-fiction imagination of the Being we referred to above as Ahriman. There are countless correspondences between the descriptions by Steiner of Ahriman, and this Darth Vader, a dark, icy dictator, frozen almost to a machine, who controls with merciless severity his technologically advanced military apparatus: the 'Empire' - a terrifying system of suppression and socially mechanised monolithic state par excellence. Darth Vader, the fallen father who was once on the good path, the father of the fighter for the good, Luke Skywalker, who redeems his fallen father through defeating him in the battle between good and evil, this central inner motif of our time. The entire film is filled to overflowing with motifs, Beings and events, which have clearly been drawn by the Director George Lucas from the ideas of Anthroposophy.
Darth Vader is a true spiritual picture:3 he is an imaginative representation of the world-shaping principle of material-mechanical hardening which can, in the final resort, when conceived as a Being, be articulated - in a struggle with words and imagery - with the help of the pictorial Ahriman-imaginations as they are to be found in Anthroposophy. And this in the knowledge that it is only a stammering attempt to describe something that is hardly accessible to ordinary consciousness and can easily be - and often is - dismissed as unintelligible nonsense. However, to a reflection that is more exact and without prejudice, and which does not make itself dependent on the fashionable opinions of the time, there are very many rational grounds pointing in a factual and logical way to the existence of spiritual beings, without one having to straightway fall, therefore, into a naļve belief in ghosts.
But to return to the central theme in Star Wars: the overcoming of evil. Of special significance here is the light-sword battle of Luke Skywalker (the Sun-Heaven-Walker) with Darth Vader. There, on the screen, it is brought home to one with great clarity, how this 'Darth-Ahriman' could be overcome: not through hitting out in blind aggression, nor even through a martial military war; no, it comes about through a concentrated, individual confrontation, with the sword of light as one's weapon, a wakeful fencing, such as is, wisely enough, practised in acting schools for the development of presence of mind and sureness of aim in verbal duels. And what does this sharp rapier of light represent, as a picture? Does it not stand for the light of the free power of judgement, skilfully wielded by the self-controlled thinker and 'knight of the spirit'?! The materialistic-ahrimanic illusion, which can find its expression in - among other things - the excessive love of machines, is a scientific thought-construction full of sophisticated sleights of hand, but also full of factual errors - and thus can only be seen by means of the power of crystal-clear judgement. In this way, as we press forward to a knowledge of spiritual reality, Ahriman, the god of Maya, can be overcome. The cinema audience trembles in empathy as this battle is waged by the Sun-hero Luke Skywalker against the Empire of Darth Vader; all are visibly relieved when the death-star finally explodes. Their pleasure is euphoric over the defeat of 'Darth Ahriman'. This victory is like a dream, but dreamed at first only in the cinema. In reality, on the other hand, the excessive High-Tech enthusiasm of our civilisation continues unabated. And it is surely this that one would actually like to see 'exploded' (or at least subdued): Ahriman in real life.4
"The Way Ahead"
Someone who is not only dreaming, but also living out his dreams - albeit in precisely the opposite direction - is, for example, Bill Gates. The head of Microsoft - since the beginning of this year responsible only for the "visionary" side of the work - is campaigning with almost missionary zeal for the all-embracing computerisation of our civilisation. It is largely thanks to his efforts that the High-Tech industry is at present undergoing transformations on a historic scale - it is claimed to be celebrating nothing less than a second industrial revolution. It is a 'Way Ahead', travelling at top speed, to echo the title given by Gates, with perfect consistency, to his last book but one. The only question is: where is this 'way ahead' taking us to?
A hectic future-orientation pervades the entire computer industry. The driving force for innovation in this sector is continually developing new products at a breathtaking speed, so that within a few years what a short time ago was acclaimed as the latest achievement is already unusable. One is virtually forced to classify as obsolete those technologies with which we have just become familiar, and abandon them in order to get acquainted with the very newest product: a 'way ahead' at top speed, comparable to racing ahead on a motorway - exactly as it is illustrated on the front cover of Gates' book, through the picture of a road. The message here being: don't come to a halt for heaven's sake, don't stop for reflection!
This headlong race forwards goes hand in hand with the continual struggle for the leading position in the economic world. Whoever is not fast-moving and innovative simply goes to the wall in the great capitalistic struggle for existence. It is essential to win the big race on the business-highway fought out at the leading edge of progress by the companies. In this race Gates' gigantic computer company Microsoft has so far done especially well. This is what people like Gates find most exhilarating: "My aim is above all to keep Microsoft at the very forefront by means of continuous innovation. It is a bit disconcerting to see that in the course of the further development of computer technology no enterprise has been able to maintain the leading position which it held in one period, on into the following period ... I would like to break this rule. Somewhere ahead of us lies the threshold separating the epoch of the PC from the epoch of the Highway [= the total computer network]. I would like to be among the first to cross this threshold" (The Way Ahead, 1995).
A one-sided forwards orientation brings the human being out of balance. He loses, metaphorically speaking, his upright posture and falls into the animal-like horizontal position, whereby the head loses its superior position and stretches greedily downwards and forwards in a material orientation to the future, sniffing around continually and on the hunt for the information-fodder of ever more sophisticated technologies. The limb-metabolic-abdominal organisation on the other hand is raised out of its position subordinate to the head, thus entering, as the organisation of lower drives, the same horizontal plane as the head. Thus it constitutes the actual source of motivation of super-intelligent technology production in the economic struggle for existence. As we indicated above, the 'ahrimanic' one-sidedness can be seen as the stimulator of the will working into the human metabolic-limb system - i.e. into his unconscious life of will, and bringing about the excessive fascination for the technology of machines. Gates describes repeatedly his special enthusiasm for the tremendous possibilities inherent in ever-improving technology. "The feeling that I can see into the future and glimpse the first meaningful hint of revolutionary possibilities, still electrifies me. I think myself incredibly fortunate to be granted yet again the opportunity to play a part at the beginning of a historic change. This special feeling of euphoria I experienced for the first time as a teenager, when I began to realise how cheap and efficient computers would be one day ... One of the reasons why I was so determined to take part in the development of the personal computer, was certainly the wish to have one myself".5

Addiction to the Future - and Destruction of the Environment
This extreme drive towards mechanisation', combined with the typical ahrimanic addiction to the future we have referred to, brings about the environmental destruction of living nature. And this destruction is the destruction of that which comes down to us from past ages; for nature is the result of past cycles of evolution. It is the tangible proof of the fact that in the past an infinitely grandiose process of evolution took place. Every tree, every animal, the human body and the whole cosmos are filled with such exalted intelligence, wisdom and beauty, that by comparison all mechanical intelligence appears as no more than an amateurish imitation. Materialistic science may try with however involved and over-complicated arguments to prove the opposite - nature is still, and, so long as it is there, remains in its unsurpassed genius a proof of the existence of a creative reality working (within it) invisibly. And it is thus - together with all the works of art produced by man - the means whereby, at any time, we can experience a meeting with spiritual reality through penetrating the surface of the everyday world. In this it is a bridge to the realm of the eternal, to the divine-creative sphere, which also lives in the human being (because he has his source in it).
Environmental destruction destroys this bridge, that is to say, it cuts off the path of the human being to the divine. Ahriman refuses to allow us to find the way back to the reality of the creator-spirit. Through the computer civilisation for which Gates so ardently strives the human being will be imprisoned ever deeper in a mechanical world of appearance, which seals him off from the creative forces of outer nature, and at the same time actually destroys it.
Whether Gates did this deliberately or not, the landscape depicted on his book is nothing other than what would remain if the Ahrimanic goal of environmental destruction were to be realised: namely, desert and machine (motorway). If the whole of living nature is destroyed, then only what is dead remains, as shown on the cover. Only mineral, measure, number and weight remain. The mathematical lines and proportions of the road are like an image of the realm of measure, number and weight of the actual sphere of Ahriman. Thus the cover of the book is an exact representation of the ahrimanic one-sidednesses and thereby a caricature of the book's content. For this content is nothing other than an endlessly repetitive hymn in praise of a world of wonderful computers, an expression of the longing for a machine-planet of the future.
As we said, it is part of the ahrimanic intention to remove not only living and animal nature from the Earth, but "particularly, to take away human beings from the Earth", so that they could then live on - on a machine-planet. This removal of the human being from the Earth would be the ultimate aim to be achieved by Ahriman, it would be the final chapter of his world history of the future. When the reader of Gates' The Way Ahead has read this (hi)story in spirit, chapter by chapter, to the very last page, he closes the book and sees the illustration on the back cover. It is (in mirror-image) exactly the same landscape as on the front cover - only with one difference: the human being who was standing there before, is now missing; he has been "taken away from the Earth". The cover of the book gives an exact picture of the consequences which would be bound, in the end, to follow upon the realisation of the book's contents.

Footnotes
1. Since the beginning of the year Bill Gates has handed over the daily running of his company to his manager Steve Ballmer. From now on he wants to devote himself to his preferred activity, namely as visionary and software architect.
2. Rudolf Steiner: "The Responsibility of Man for World-Development" (GA 203), Lecture of 11th March 1923.
3. It goes without saying that such "true pictures" can only be somewhat trite within the context of a commercial science-fiction film.
4. To speak of the overcoming of Ahriman (here we are actually speaking only of Ahriman's realm) by means of the expression "exploding" is of course highly misleading, and is only understandable figuratively in terms of the picture-world of science-fiction. Here too no anachronistic technophobia is meant. All that is necessary is a healthy balance between outer and inner development.
5. Bill Gates: The Way Ahead. These references to Bill Gates are not intended to set up any superficial hate-objects. Nor do they mean to arouse an overbearing antipathy towards Bill Gates as a person, which would be quite out of place. It is only an attempt to contribute to a spiritual understanding of events in our time. Gates is merely an illustration of something that takes place in each one of us in countess different ways.

Re: The Machine-Planet: Our future? Darth Vader as Ahriman

To the one who asked about time travel and remote viewing and astral travel:
I quote Baker (footnotes).
"remote viewing are a clairvoyance where the nerve sensory system is uesd consciously. From the anthroposophic point of view, this is `Ahrimanic clairvoyance".

I would add to this that since a remote viewer uses spiritual powers to obtain knowledge 'for himself' or for 'impure' purposes (egotistic, for 'work', serving others with impure motives), he is on the borderline of black magic. It is even darker than gray magic. If this is made with love, clairvoyance develops differently and there is no nedd for remote viewing, beside previsionning attacks on others in order to protect. In the future, it will be necessary to forsee attacks in order to defend ourselves, but if one seeks egotistically (out of self-love and fear) to foresee if danger is lurking upon himself, he is playing with blackmagic. Is in itself, selling occult services is morally problematic, imagine working for corrupted paranoid governments! (blackmagic= not only very bad karma, it means that the soul-spirit complex itself is in danger of dissolution and death!)

Remote Viewing: travel by the ether

by Ezrah Baker

In 1996, a remarkable book appeared; `Psychic Warrior of David Morehouse. You take this book serious, then it is the autobiographical report of Morehouse own experiences with `remote viewing; a perception technique to be able travel in space and time. At these an impression.

The mysteriėn to lie on the street

There are a lot of manners mental perceptions reach. Some ways are a lot rapidly, other slow. Roughly speaking you can state that the distinction is present especially in the degree in which working for yourself is first put. You must stand, as it happens, considerable strong in your shoes certain perceptions überhaupt are able endure; you then not yet to enormously let mislead are point two. Hence the good fist rule: one step knowledge, three steps morality. In former days there mysterieplaatsen, everyone were with their very characteristic education methods depending on the subjects where they kept itself busy. You were selected for this, either birth, or because the priest initiates saw through particular brio in you. You were then incorporated on condition of the strictest confidentiality in the mysterieplaatsen. (1)

Nowadays the mysterieėn `lie on the street; people choose themselves or he scholingsweg want go. This has with always more individually and more independent become make of people. Because of this the mysterieplaatsen in the old (elitist) form no longer at their place have been concluded. And it is pre-eminently the 20th century which can be taken as one large public to become of numerous matter which was formerly guarded only in closed rings. Everything what is there to mental education ways step gradually for the voetlicht: well and angry, and above all it grey tussengebied with difficulty to distinguish.

Mostly one thinks that such matter fodder for `woolly types is. Thereby becomes rather what overlooked. For example that people established there also extremely pragmatically are who wonder themselves if they can acquire power concerning others by means of spiritual knowledge. And the most practically established lieden in this area find you at the better espionage services. These cannot permit themselves risk run that another secret service can them be perhaps too malignant finished. There much truth puts in all those rumours, books and films, in which gewag is made of numerous espionage experimentings true the standaardwetenschapper experience nothing wants. (Interestingly is consider that this denying attitude an espionage service ends up very well.)

Psychic warrior

David Morehouse have sat on a universityuniversity university in Utah and choose eventually, in imitation of its father, for military carriére. During what already too realistic exercise in a Jordanian fall slate he is found by a ball, which exactly its skull pan not transpierced. (2) this event will be throw life totally in a mess. Whereas he is unconscious he has a conversation with a engelachtig being which calls himself him with violence to no longer occupy and gone of peace to walk. Once recovered, he feels himself what sees strangely and already fast that something has changed with its perception. Somewhere in the night became I wakker because of artificially light outside the tent. I thought that of the cooks busy was with gas. I stepped to. Light was as light at a sun darkening and did not come certainly of or an other cooker. The whole fall slate and the hillocks gone bathed in strangely bluish grey slightly. I ran to the edge of the hillock and looked at down. Dark characters moved effortlessly concerning the ground. They flowed from the rocks in several forms in the direction of the tents. I was possible suffocated cried hear from the Jordanian camp, and for a moment I thought that we became to assault robbers or even Israeli. In panic I wound up myself for for aid and `bluntest immediately against such a dark character. I closed my eyes, but ran bluntest not, there transversely doorheen. I became deathly-frightened and could on my knees be prayed, but no word came from my mouth. I dropped down unconsciously.


David Morehouse anno 2001

Such as every `healthy American soldier try he initial is repress experiences. None has however escaped to. To be droomleven become very intense; he has visioenen of past, present and future which distresses him frequently rather. Most frightening is those experiences when he comes into contact with beings which come according to him from a type dark world: On a night in June became I wakker with a sharp pain below my ring. I clattered from bed and incurred pace; suddenly something shot omhoog along my ruggegraat, me nailing to the ground. I was turned around as if I was a headstock on a stick, then which squares being surprised, then the other, whereas the house filled himself with shadows and strangely light. I heard the children me clamours, frightened become by foreigner slightly and the presence in pace. `Are I it where them frightened for its? Is I it? I decided call them to put their rested, but the sound of an animal left my mouth. The children shouted louder and louder and my woman became awake. She went for a ride to me. When she saw me she started scream. A hand, mijne, did not become visible as if it me vastzat. It seized her at the throat; I looked on helplessly whereas the animal where I share of was its to the staircase dragged and her omlaag threw. By strange eyes saw I bleed from its mouth and ears to come. (.....) I felt how tasted and experienced the power and hate as floating strength: the verachting for living flesh and the welcome feeling of death. (…) I understood the need kill. This proves a nightmare, from which he awoken be whereas its woman luidkeels praying if heuse duivelsuitdrijver time goes.

Sun Streak

Just when he allowed up to the project `Sun Streak (`zonneflits) is met he people at whom he is possible with its experiences rightly. Him is offered a job and training its changed constitutie learn use: he becomes `remote viewer. He learns himself concentrate on a certain manner and `rush to by the vrager aim then put in and by means of (what he calls) the `ether. Obviously it determines a lot that he now aimed himself goes with its strange capacities to the battle, because the nightmares disappear mainly. It is then 1988, a thick year after `the ball. Remote viewing prove to be numerous possibilities of offering to move yourself; you can be in water without oxygen lack, you can walk away by all kinds of objects, the ideas and feelings of people to explore, and that all also still in past, present and future. (Future events are considered moreover by the remote viewers as certain do not experience, but more as a possibility.)

In old heremetische writings it bursts of the `country cards of the different regionen in the worlds of the spirit. At these a simple that consistency between light and dark worlds try reflect. (Robert Fludd, Philosophia Moysaica, 1638)

Sun Streak had been since 1974 exist and a project of the DIA (Defense Intelligengence Agency), i.e. the `own espionage service of the army. Although there then much experience has been already gained (with scientific support for the Stanford university) I do not escape to the impression that colleague pioneers are also not well know where they are now, and to which dangers expose themselves them. Thus is learn know one of the first steps of training extreme circumstances. This means that David come unprepared and unexpectedly on a day in the nazi-concentratiekampnazi-concentratiekamp nazi-concentratiekamp Dachau rightly, where he is as such overwhelmed by the suffering which assumes only already the walls that he is not possible further.

The next day stands there something entirely differently on the programme. Of the research aim goes such a strength from, which he must look at an enormous piece further in the time flow, wants the überhaupt possible be endure the sight of it: In total stupefaction I saw coming in four men in clothing from antiquity the chamber. Them carried gouden a travelling box. Them placed the travelling box in the middle on stones increase and left to the back current the chamber. An enormous stone for the entrance was placed, as a result of which of it none slightly more came. Outside one closed immediately to the battle to build the affair. Gouden strangely enough the travelling box continued relieve the chamber. I felt how the same strange energy which I had experienced already then I nothing could see, the space filled. A type of threat came concerning me; I felt that I was not warned the travelling box to approach. David becomes its coach the called of it nothing attracting himself and travelling box to palpate. I tried myself move in the direction of the object. `It is gouden a travelling box with animals there on top of `real animals? `No, small pictures, and they have wings which move to and up. The travelling box himself is very powerful, or it is which the travelling box protected. What it also is, I cannot come closer, I feel a large danger, I do not see sitting (…) What I want say am, nobody becomes to have considered here. Even we not; it an irruption is, penetrate in something what is very powerful and holy.


According to the old will the Ark became of the treaty
used with only rule half-measure by the Jews at field layers

In short; here the remote viewers arrive if they concentrate on the `Ark of the treaty. But the extreme oefenprogramma do not stop. On the next training mission David are sent already to top. (Admitted; they find it or treat time itself on a piglet Mac.) when he the training entirely has are accomplished, gets he more space to go out independently on research.

Man with a mission

Very moving is the moment when he looks up the spot in the Central American oerwoud where its best friend and collega-militair in 1981, were given as vermist. Captivating is that he observes indeed in the past and a vliegtuigongeluk `experiences, but that its friend him on site looks up there and a sensible conversation in the here and now with him conducts.
Moreover from time to time tasks of the `come in DIA; for example the deflagration in the PanAm boeing above Lockerbie to examine in the first yielded after the calamity (1987). According to David they found the spot where the explosives in the plane sat, some days before ordinary technical research workers confirmed these. Also they could find terrorists. He does not say or this Libyans were. However, wise he that there still if a type `reserve an Iranian woman on a suicide mission could not zat descend, the bomb. This woman had lost its animal ingots in the Iranian passenger plane that the Americans in 1986 `, accidentally above the golf had shot down.

It is and remains emotionally heavy work: In most painful of all sessions, Lyn described how was be for in the boeing flat for the deflagration. In its `fantoomvorm he was of course not visible. However, then the bomb exploded he stood suddenly in the presence of dozens startled souls which wondered themselves what had happened with them. Lyn cried then to a small child him approached and asked where its mother was and what had happened there. Lyn were not possible `, the others.

David have been all in all very captivated by its work and have the feeling that he on an important mission for humanity sit. Concerning its experiences he does not talk with its woman and children. Concentrated if he is on its mission, he neglects himself in fact its family. Those have do however much with a father and spouse who behaves themselves a lot strangely. Sometimes he is suddenly (hours) totally absent because he the `ether find infloept, or them spontaneously him languit stretched `s night in the garden, crying and trembling of all kinds of violent emotions which bring with the intense experienceexperience experiences with itself. After two years, when is best friend colleague with pension goes and a new boss aantreedt who blows of toeten nor weet and the work much, makes unsafe, lets he transfer itself to a normal job in the army. Within three months the dark nightmares start.

He becomes this way unmanageable, that woman and children leave him. When he comes that the DIA starts extra attention on `put remote influencing: influencing ideas of other people, takes he with its pensioned friend Sam Riley a brave decision: they will make the matter public. Also he marries again with its woman. Then the attacks start from the krochten of the secret service, where he plus woman and children almost living comes. Coincides remarkably enough this with terrible experiences from the dark side, which ensures that he treats itself with a scheermes.

Just an old-fashioned inaugurationinauguration inauguration in a sweat hut (its friend Sam is large indianenkenner) and the support of its woman and children helps him find an assessment. Meanwhile he has three books on its name stand and is worked there for a verfilming. Nowadays he adopts to private tasks for remote viewing and gives cursussen concerning the whole world. He has emigrated to Sweden.

What is remote viewing now?

Remote viewing are in the first place a technique relatively fast mental perceptions reach. The question is which; the mental world is not one spot. David distinguish to a dark side themselves already where all kinds of demonische strengths seem live. Lifts in or from these spots is bluish grey. Its dead friend indicates also clear that David are limited perception, when he indicates him that he cannot be killed what kind of see he now actual after death leads. Since David can observe nevertheless free clearly walls and such, indicates this that he observes so-called licht-ether in. You have also still consonances, warmths and life levens-ether. This falls outside the specifications of this Article. It also is not called to confuse the reader, but on an empty stomach to continue determine that of it total other manners observe can act. (3)

How does the technique in its work go? Normally said the one become which will be accompanied on a mission by a colleague who watches matter such as pulsation and breathing well and you can adress always calming down as a panic act. David were vervolgens learned concentrate on a certain physical situation.


At basis to the technique of remote viewing pioneers lie in the field of lord research, like here Elmer Green in the years `50. Thus he came behind the consistency between the unprecedented performances of indian Yogi and theta- the lord golf length.

By means of to the head was determined or he confirmed magnets on the correct `lord golf length zat. Which? They call this theta-golflengte, whereas people function spoken normally at day conscience especially on the beta-golflengtebeta-golflengte beta-golflengte. Theta-golflengte seem then to have arranged let function with an awake conscience to the linker- and rechterhersenhelft equivalently beside and with each other. This has not been spoken normally therefore the case; by day the one, in sleep other one dominates. How does candidate remote viewers come now on theta? By listening to so-called `focus-tapes; these contain audible and inaudible tone frequencies c.q messages. Later its these tapes no longer necessary.


The four bass ales lord frequencies. Theta are the lord activity pulsative between
to watch and falls asleep, delta deep sleep. It is an endless interesting area.
At long-term TV look at one for example also tends to theta.

Interestingly also the way is in which the aims are determined. One neme a subject; a folder or blade can be skilful, and one knows to that a random code, e.g. D-0123. Every remote viewer which uses now, without some weet of the subject, this code come there correct. This seems this way strongly work that if you a package rises if subject takes and you catches a year later the code, then to see you a bad package rises now lies the question for the hand if you must a certain construction for this. David and its colleague not chosen its for nothing. It sees to that this turns out better than expected, however. David let themselves shine through that he since its first book already a lot has trained people in this area, which nevertheless all already helderziende experiences will not have had.


Robert Monroe

Important in this respect however total an other pioneer in this area is: Robert Monroe, recently died and author of books concerning what he calls astrally `travels. (4) the Monroe institute train also people to coordinate their linker and rechterhersenhelft on each other and emphasise that everyone can this.

Zelfscholing

A very striking aspect is that the zelfscholing in the training programme of Sun Streak are lacking entirely. It is meant the importance of the expression which hung for example above the entrance of much Greek mysterieplaatsen: Know you itself. Mental perceptions are differently coloured (litterally) depending on sym- and the antipathies which you take along with you, certain onvolkomenheden in your character can be reinforced by the intense experiences enormously. Very in particular it will the capacity come to terms with experiences, own to have made. You have already hardly done that in veryday living, then you large chance runs the mental touching world in a psychosis. David see for example at a given moment a character which prevents him very threatening and wants these at lijf, but beats there transversely doorheen: There I stood, with bowed head, reports. I touched overwelmd emotion. I started cry. I slowly aimed my head at the being in the face am able look at and the bump of the face passang away straight through me. The being had my face! (5) even the frightening experiences of David with the beings of the dark side can be kept in the hand with zelfscholing. (6)


Above the entrance of the temple of Apollo in Delphi `gnothi sauton stood: Know YOU itself

David it has rather come all at above. But question not how. He (he does not realise it itself not yet, at least in its first book) much to its contextcontext context has however in my opinion had (firm itself discipline). Its military training connects on this. He was training officer at the Rangers; the infantry boys who do the heavy work and chilly must keep try the head in mine fields or among heavy cannonadings. Also have myself strong suspecting that he of Indiaanse source is, to which he has a certain helderziende construction to not only thank, but as a result of which he finds also easily protection when he decides will sit at last in the sweat hut. In the hut he experiences a type priest and heropstanding. And charge but not least; its sober woman offers protection also much him. This becomes already entirely pieces improves after he has in a dramatic, completely open conversation its and children for discharge has not been asked for all those years that he actual them was.

Its proportion to the angel is a tale separate. These are there with only rule half-measure, already there a half year can sit or more. The angel gives initially sober recommendations and does not say give him up. Regularly these him indicates that much have predetermined already for its birth and that it will there old form and learn krijgersmentaliteit be to turn. It lasts long before David learn accept its angel. More about this is find probably in its other books.

All in all `Psychic Warrior a book is what entirely and even if to our time belongs. Much more people nevertheless on similar violent manners are, faced with mental experiences. The honestly written book is warning and appliances at the same time.

Finally the aspect of spying. This must be taken seriously. Morehouse and its colleague went already up to that point that they did not remember of others tried influence, already saw them this complete a lot sitting. Their navolgers are however much. David have undertaken numerous missions to military installations in other countries, and found to that for example machines which obviously meant products to influence the human psyche. (7) conclusion: there using firm `real-life - experimentings it is worked rapidly. How on a large scale this become (or already is) will be the question, but cannot be escaped to onbehagelijk a feeling. There is in this area than remote viewing however still much more going on, but about that another time more.

`Psychic warrior are order at every bookshop; ISBN 1 902636 20 1, publisher Clairview Books, London 2000. The titles of the other two books are: Nonlethal weapons: War Without Death (Praeger press) the other one is a novel (`the Deceivers).

Notes

1. Mysterie, comes of mysterion, a derivative of the verb musein, which closes in particular of lips and means eyes.
2. These fall slate, ell Ghoul, profits under the jordanians a bad name; fall slate of the Djinns
3. Still more specific; remote viewing are a clairvoyance where is used consciously the nerve sensory system. From the anthroposophy the this `Ahrimanische clairvoyance are called.
4. See for example Monroe last book `ultimate travel, from 1994. Publisher Ankh Hermes; leen in every library.
5. In the esoterie such experiences stand confessed as meetings with your own double; that side of yourself stores those as it were all onvolkomenheden in itself. You have been prepared to such a meeting, then, but works it continues be scared especially as an apple to go for the battle. You can then even hold a type conversation.
6. Also the atrocious nightmare in which he its woman flies at, has do with the depths of its own soul. Uncomfortably for the reader possibly the proposition is that deeply in everyone of our such destroying being characteristics be to find.
7. One seems have at the DIA already apparaatjes which registers or there are spying remote viewer in the chamber.

Re: The Machine-Planet: Our future? Darth Vader as Ahriman

In "The Machine-Planet: Our future?" Ingo Hoppe wrote:

A one-sided forwards orientation brings the human being out of balance. He loses, metaphorically speaking, his upright posture and falls into the animal-like horizontal position, whereby the head loses its superior position and stretches greedily downwards and forwards in a material orientation to the future, sniffing around continually and on the hunt for the information-fodder of ever more sophisticated technologies. The limb-metabolic-abdominal organisation on the other hand is raised out of its position subordinate to the head, thus entering, as the organisation of lower drives, the same horizontal plane as the head. Thus it constitutes the actual source of motivation of super-intelligent technology production in the economic struggle for existence. As we indicated above, the 'ahrimanic' one-sidedness can be seen as the stimulator of the will working into the human metabolic-limb system - i.e. into his unconscious life of will, and bringing about the excessive fascination for the technology of machines.

Just fascinating. Thank you druid!

This last one source quotes Steiner describing a Matrix-like future:

A Picture of Earth-Evolution in the Future, Lecture by Rudolf Steiner, Dornach, May 13th, 1921, GA 204 http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/Places … 13p01.html
He first talks about beings from other planets (this was in 1921!)

"This quickening to life of the shadow-pictures of the intellect is not only a human but a cosmic event. You will remember the passage in the book Occult Science dealing with the time when the human souls ascended to the planets and afterwards descended once more to earth-existence. I spoke of how the Mars-men, the Jupiter-men and the others descended again to earth. Now an event of great significance came to pass at the end of the seventies of last century. It is an event that can be described only in the light of facts which are revealed to us in the spiritual world. Whereas in the days of old Atlantis human beings came down to the earth from Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, and so on –¯ that is to say, beings of soul were drawn into the realm of earth-existence –¯ since the end of the seventies of last century, other Beings –¯ not of the human order –¯ have been descending to the earth for the purposes of their further development. From cosmic realms beyond the earth they come down to the earth and enter into a definite relationship with human beings. Since the eighties of the nineteenth century, super-earthly Beings have been seeking to enter the sphere of earth-existence. Just as the Vulcan-men were the last to come down to the earth so now Vulcan Beings are actually coming into the realm of earthly existence. Super-earthly Beings are already here, and the fact that we are able to have a connected body of Spiritual Science at all today is due to the circumstance that Beings from beyond the earth are bringing the messages from the spiritual world down into earth-existence.

But, speaking generally, what is the attitude adopted by the human race? The human race is behaving, if I may put it so very shabbily to these Beings who are appearing from the cosmos and coming down –¯ slowly and by degrees, it is true –¯ to the earth. The human race does not concern itself with them; it ignores their existence. And it is this which will plunge the earth into tragic conditions, for in the course of the next centuries more and more Spiritual Beings will be among us –¯ Beings whose language we ought to understand. And this is possible only if we try to grasp what comes from them: namely, the substance and content of Spiritual Science. They want to give it to us and they want us to act in the sense of Spiritual Science. Their desire is that Spiritual Science shall be translated into social behaviour and action on the earth.

I repeat, then, that since the last third of the nineteenth century Spiritual Beings from the cosmos have been coming into our own sphere of existence. Their home is the sphere lying between the moon and Mercury, but they are already pressing forward into the realm of earth-existence and seeking to gain a foothold there. And they will be able to find it if human beings are imbued with the thought of their existence. This can also be expressed as I expressed it just now, by saying that our shadowy intellect must be quickened to life by the pictures of Spiritual Science. We are speaking of concrete fact when we say: Spiritual Beings are seeking to come down into earth-existence and ought to be willingly received. Catastrophe after catastrophe must ensue, and earthly life will fall at length into social chaos, if opposition is maintained in human existence to the advent of these Beings. They desire nothing else than to be the advance-guards of what will happen to earth-existence when the moon is once again united with the earth.

Today people may consider it comparatively harmless to elaborate only those automatic, lifeless thoughts which arise in connection with the mineral world and the mineral nature of plant, animal and man. Materialists revel in such thoughts which are –¯ well –¯ thoughts and nothing more. But try to imagine what will happen if men go on unfolding no other kinds of thoughts until the time is reached in the eighth millennium for the moon-existence to unite again with the earth. These Beings of whom I have spoken will gradually come down to the earth. Vulcan Beings, ‘Supermen’ of Vulcan, ‘Supermen’ of Venus, of Mercury, of the Sun, will unite with this earth-existence. But if human beings persist in nothing but opposition to them, earth-existence will pass over into chaos in the course of the next few thousand years.

It will be quite possible for the men of earth, if they so wish, to develop a more and more automatic form of intellect –¯ but that can also happen amid conditions of barbarism. Full and complete manhood, however, cannot come to expression in such a form of intellect, and men will have no relationship to the Beings who would fain come towards them in earth-existence. And all those Beings of whom men have such an erroneous conception because the shadowy intellect can only grasp the mineral nature, the crudely material nature in the minerals, plants and animals, nay even in the human kingdom itself –¯ all these thoughts which have no reality will in a trice become substantial realities when the moon unites again with the earth. And from the earth there will spring forth a terrible brood of beings, a brood of automata of an order of existence lying between the mineral and the plant kingdoms, and possessed of an overwhelming power of intellect.

This swarm will seize upon the earth, will spread over the earth like a network of ghastly, spider-like creatures, of an order lower than that of plant-existence, but possessed of overpowering wisdom. These spidery creatures will be all interlocked with one another, and in their outward movements they will imitate the thoughts that men have spun out of the shadowy intellect that has not allowed itself to be quickened by the new form of Imaginative Knowledge by Spiritual Science. All the thoughts that lack substance and reality will then be endowed with being.

The earth will be surrounded –¯ as it is now with air and as it sometimes is with swarms of locusts –¯ with a brood of terrible spider-like creatures, half-mineral, half-plant, interweaving with masterly intelligence, it is true, but with intensely evil intent. And in so far as man has not allowed his shadowy intellectual concepts to be quickened to life, his existence will be united not with the Beings who have been trying to descend since the last third of the nineteenth century, but with this ghastly brood of half-mineral, half-plantlike creatures. He will have to live together with these spider-like creatures and to continue his cosmic existence within the order of evolution into which this brood will then enter.

This is a destiny that is very emphatically part of human evolution upon the earth, and it is quite well known today by many of those who try to hold humanity back from the knowledge of Spiritual Science. For there are men who are actually conscious allies of this process of the entanglement of earth-existence. We must no longer allow ourselves to be shocked by descriptions of this kind. Such facts are the background of what is often said today by people who out of old traditions still have some consciousness of these things and who then see fit to surround them with a veil of mystery. But it is not right any longer for the process of the earthly evolution of humanity to be veiled in mystery. However great the resistance, these things must be said, for, as I constantly repeat, the acceptance or rejection of spiritual-scientific knowledge is a grave matter for all mankind.

I have been speaking today of a matter upon which we cannot form a lukewarm judgment, for it is part and parcel of the very texture of cosmic existence. The issue at stake is whether human beings will resolve in the present epoch to make themselves worthy to receive what the good Spirits who want to unite with men are bringing down from the cosmos, or whether men intend to seek their future cosmic existence within the tangled, spider-brood of their own shadowy thoughts. It is not enough today to speak in abstract terms of the need for Spiritual Science. The only thing to do is actually to show how thoughts become realities. Dreadfully abstract theories are hurled at men today, such, for example, as “Thoughts become things,”  or similar phrases. Abstract statements of this kind altogether fail to convey the full and concrete reality. And the concrete reality is that the intellectual thoughts evolved inwardly by men today will in time to come creep over the earth like a spider's web wherein human beings will be enmeshed, if they will not reach out to a world lying beyond and above their shadowy thoughts and concepts.

We must learn to take in deepest earnestness such matters as were indicated at the conclusion of my lectures on the nature of colours, when I said that the science of colour must be lifted out of the realm of abstract physics into a region where the creative fantasy and feeling of the artist who understands the real nature of colour go hand-in-hand with a perception of the world illumined by Spiritual Science. We have seen how the nature of colour can be understood, how that which modem physics, with its unimaginative charts, casts down into the Ahrimanic world, can be lifted into the sphere of art, so that there can be established a theory of colours –¯ remote, it is true, from the tenets of modern science, but able to provide a true foundation for artistic creation, if man will only receive it into his being.

And there is another thought, too, that must be taken very seriously. What do we find today all over the civilised world? Young students go into the hospitals or to universities to study science, and the constitution of the human being is explained to them. By studying the corpse they learn about the bones and the rest of the organism. By a series of abstract thoughts they are supposed to be able to acquaint themselves with the nature of man's being. But in this way it is only possible to learn something about the mineral part of the human organism. With this kind of science we can only learn about the part of man's being which has a significance from the time of the separation of the moon until its return, when the shadowy thoughts of modern times will become spidery creatures having a concrete existence.

A form of knowledge must develop which produces quite a different conception of the being of man, and it can be developed only by raising science to the level of artistic perception. We shall realise then that science as it is today is capable of grasping only the mineral nature, whether in the mineral kingdom itself or in the kingdoms of plant, animal and man. Even when applied to the plant kingdom, science must become a form of art, and still more so in the case of the animal kingdom. To think that the form and structure of an animal can be understood by the means employed by anatomists and physiologists is nonsense. And so long as we fail to realise that it is nonsense, the shadowy intellect cannot be transformed into a living, spiritual comprehension of the world. What is taught to young students today in so abstract a form in the universities must be transformed and must lead to a really artistic conception of the world. For the world of Nature itself creates as an artist. And until we realise that Nature is a world of creative art which can be understood only through artistic feeling, no healing will come into our picture of the world.

In the torture-chambers of mediaeval castles, people were shut into what was called the ‘iron virgin,’ where they were slowly spiked with iron teeth. This was a physical and more tangible procedure than that to which students in our day have to submit when they are taught anatomy and physiology and are told that in this way they are acquiring knowledge of the nature of man –¯ but fundamentally it is the same kind of procedure. All that can be understood of the nature of man by such methods derives from an attitude of mind which is not unlike the attitude of those who were not averse from applying tortures in the Middle Ages. Students learn about the human being as he is when he has been dismembered –¯ they are taught only about the mineral structure in man, about that part of his being which will one day be woven into the network of spider-like creatures extending over the earth.

It is a hard destiny that power should lie in the hands of men who regard the truest thoughts as absurdities and who scorn the impulses that are most inwardly and intimately bound up with the well-being of human evolution, with the whole mission of humanity in the world. It is a tragic state of things and we dare not shut our eyes to it. For it is only by realising the depth of such a tragedy that men will be brought to the point of resolving, each in his own place, to help the shadowy intellect to admit the spiritual world that is coming down from above in order that this intellect may be made fit for the conditions of future times. It is not right for the shadowy intellect to be driven down into an order of existence lower than that of the plants, into the brood of spidery creatures that will spread over the earth. Man's being needs to have reached a higher level of existence when, in the eighth millennium, women will become barren and the moon will unite once again with the earth. The earthly must then remain behind, with man directing and controlling it from outside like an object which he need not carry over with him into cosmic existence. Man must so prepare himself that he need not be involved in what must inevitably develop upon the surface of the earth in this way.

From pre-earthly existence man has descended to this earthly life. His birth from woman began with the departure of the moon, but this physical form of birth is only a passing episode in the great sweep of cosmic evolution and will be replaced by another. It is the phase which was destined to bring to man the feeling and consciousness of freedom, the self-completeness of individuality and personality. It is a phase by no means to be undervalued. It was necessary in the whole cosmic process, but it must not remain forever unchanged. Man must not give way to the easy course of assuming the existence of an abstract God, but bring himself to look concretely at things that are connected with his evolution. For his being of soul-and-spirit can only be inwardly stimulated when he really understands the nature of the concrete realities connected with the great epoch towards which his successive earthly lives are leading him.

That is what a true Spiritual Science tells us today. The human will is threatened with being deprived of spiritual impulses and with becoming involved in the spidery web that will creep over the earth. There are men in existence who imagine that they will gain their ends by promoting their own spiritual development and leaving the rest of their fellow-beings in a state of ignorance. But the vast majority live in complete unawareness of the terrible destiny that awaits them if they lend themselves to what an ancient form of spiritual knowledge called the “sixteen paths to corruption.”  For just as there are many ways in which the shadowy intellect may be directed to the impulses and knowledge coming from the spiritual world, so naturally there are many ways in which varieties of the shadowy intellect will be able to unite with the spider-beings who will spin their web over the earth in times to come. Intellect will then be objectivised in the very limbs and tentacles of these spidery creatures, who in all their wonderful inter-weavings and caduceus-like convolutions will present an amazing network of intricate forms.

It is only by developing an inner understanding for what is truly artistic that man will be able to understand the realm that is higher than mineral existence –¯ that realm of which we see an expression in the actual shaping and form of the surfaces of things in the world.

Goethe's theory of metamorphosis was a most significant discovery. The pedants of his day regarded it as dilettantism, and the same opinion prevails today. But in Goethe, clarity of insight and intelligence was combined with a faculty of vision which perceived Nature herself as an active expression of artistic creation. In connection with the animal world, Goethe only reached the point of applying this principle of metamorphosis to the forms of the vertebras and cranial bones. But the process whereby the forms of a previous existence are transformed, whereby the body of the earlier life is transformed into the head of the subsequent life –¯ it is only by an inner understanding of this wonderfully artistic transformation of the radial bones into the spherical that we can truly perceive the difference between the head and the rest of the human structure. Without this insight we cannot perceive the inner, organic connection between the head and the rest of the human body.

But this is a form of art which is at the same time science. Whenever science fails to become art, it degenerates into sophistry a form of knowledge that hurls mankind into calamity so far as his cosmic existence is concerned. We see, therefore, how a true Spiritual Science points to the necessity for artistic insight and perception. This faculty was already alive in Goethe's soul and comes to expression in his hymn in prose, entitled Nature, written about the year 1780, and beginning: “Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her ...”  The ideas are woven together so wonderfully that the hymn is like the expression of a yearning to receive the Spirit from the cosmic All.

It can be said with truth that the development of the thoughts contained in Goethe's hymn to Nature would provide a dwelling-place for the Beings who would fain come down from the cosmos to the earth. But the barren conceptions of physiology and biology, the systematising of plant-life and the theories that were evolved during the nineteenth century –¯ all the thoughts which, as I showed in the lectures on colour, have really nothing to do with the true nature of the plants –¯ can awaken no real knowledge, nor can they get anywhere near the being of man. Hence the body of knowledge that is regarded today as science is essentially a product of Ahriman, leading man on towards earthly destruction and preventing him from entering the sphere which the Beings from beyond the earth have been trying to place within his reach since the last third of the nineteenth century.

To cultivate Spiritual Science is no abstract pursuit. To cultivate Spiritual Science means to open the doors to those influences from beyond the earth which have been seeking to come down to the earth since the last third of the nineteenth century. The cultivation of Spiritual Science is in very truth a cosmic event of which we ought to be fully conscious.

And so we survey the whole span of time from the separation until the return of the moon. The moon which, as we say, reflects the sunlight back to us, is in truth deeply connected with our existence. It separated itself from the earth in order that man might become a free being. But this period of time must be utilised by man in such a way that he does not prepare the material which, with the re-entry of the moon into the earth-sphere, would combine with the moon-substance to produce that new kingdom of which I have tried to give you a graphic picture.

Now and then there arises in human beings of our time a kind of foreboding of what will come about in the future. I do not know what meaning has been read into the chapter in Thus Spake Zarathustra, where Nietzsche writes of the ‘ugliest man’ in the ‘valley of death.’ It is a tragic and moving passage. Nietzsche, of course, had no concrete perception of the valley of death into which existence will be transformed when the spidery brood of which I have spoken spreads over the earth. Nevertheless, in the picture of this valley of death in Nietzsche's imagination there was a subconscious vision of the future, and within this valley of death he placed the figure of the ‘ugliest man.’ It was a kind of foreboding of what will happen if men continue to cultivate shadowy thoughts. For their destiny then will be that in hideous shape they will be caught up by the forces of the moon-existence as it comes down into the sphere of the earth and will become one with the brood of spidery creatures of which I have been speaking.

What purpose would be served by keeping these things secret today, as many people desire? To keep them secret would be to throw sand into the eyes of men. Much of what is spread over the world today under the name of spiritual teaching is nothing but a process of throwing sand into men's eyes so that no single event in history can be understood for what it really is. How many people realise today that events of fundamental and incisive importance are taking place? I have already spoken of these things. But how few are prepared really to enter into them! People prefer to shut their eyes to what is happening and to think that, after all, the events are not really of such great significance. Nevertheless, the signs of the times are unmistakable and must be understood.

This was what I wished to say in regard to the way in which the being of man upon the earth is connected with the cosmos."

Druid:
I think, like Francis Paul Emberson does, that those 'thoughts' which will gain independence and willpower are already making themselves felt in computers and evolved machines. Artificial ahrimanic ultra-intelligent elemental beings live in the spider web of the Internet and in the binary information codes sent all over the earth in the atmosphere and in outer space. People who will haev linked themselves with these elemental over-intelligent spiders will end in their claws, blocked on a machine-like planet. If one develops a right connection with angels (who would sure like to help us getting free of the meatrix), we will be above this spider web and won'tl have to fear anything. This is a question of spiritualizing thinking (in a STO fashion) in order to get out of the matrix before it is too late.

Its my opinion. If you can find Emberson's book: get it, it is a rare but most precious book concerning our future.

If one can read French here, i will send him an atricle I wrote about Emberson's book.

Best,

Druid

Re: The Machine-Planet: Our future? Darth Vader as Ahriman

I don't have Emberson's article you mentioned (which is by the way not winter 2005 but winter 2006). I have a copy of The Machine-Planet, but not of Emberson's article. However I do have his book From Gundi Shapur to Silicon Valley. I recommend you do buy one copy, or else to get some copies of New View magazine. To buy used books, I use abebooks.com. There are also have some insights coming from this book in the Article The Advent of Ahriman in Montalk's Files.

I wrote about it in French! Do you read French?

Right now I must go but I will send you everything I have in my folders on this particular subject.

Yes indeed I do read French. I'm from Montreal, Arcand-Senecale.


A nifty site detailing the real world envisioning of  Ahriman's descent--at least you could read it that way-- is:

The Future of Black Technologies
    Author: Paul Emberson
    First Published On: 01/01/1997

Extract of "From Gondhishapur to Silicon Valley" by Paul Emberson (The Etheric Dimensions Press)

Already in 1920 Rudolf Steiner said of Western technology which was as yet untouched by binary techniques:
Today's "enlightened" minds consider it superstitious to look for spiritual powers in natural phenomena. They have not the least idea that demonic spirits are active in the whole world of technology created by the human race. Nor will they find it easy to see this, because those powers are acting on the will – and I have often told you that the will is asleep. They work at an unconscious level, taking hold of the unconscious human mind. The consequence is as follows. In the past, human beings had at least some awareness of demonic powers. Today demonic powers are restively stirring in all products of technology: their activities extend into the sphere of the human will, but human beings are not yet inclined to accept this… The spirits perceived in the phenomena of nature in older times were Luciferic by nature; the spirits active in machines, in all products of technology, are Ahrimanic in nature. Human beings are thus surrounding themselves with an Ahrimanic world that is growing completely independent of them.

You will perceive the trend in human evolution. From a Luciferic world that still influences their conscious minds and determines their destinies, human beings are drifting into an Ahrimanic world. And at present this is happening at quite a fast pace. This Ahrimanic world acts on the human will, and the intellectualism of modern science does not enable people to gain immediate conscious awareness of the will. The great danger is that the Ahrimanic world will take hold of the human will and human beings will completely lose their bearing among the demonic powers that are present in the products of technology.

Since Steiner's time, two tendencies have become apparent. On the one hand, an increasing number of people have become interested in spiritual science and are looking towards it for solutions to problems produced by technology. On the other hand, technology itself was precipitated into the binary form during the Second World War, and has advanced along that path at unbelievable speed. Human beings are indeed losing their bearing among the demonic powers that are present in it.
The last part of the twentieth century was characterised by the rise of the "Academy" of Silicon Valley, which provided the anti-Michael demons with a very strong foothold in human life, from which they launch their attacks on the Michael Movement to greater effect than many members of that movements are willing to admit. True followers of Michael are called upon at the present time to penetrate deeply into this demonic stronghold with their thinking, and "offer up to Gods the secrets wrested from demons".

The beginning of the third millennium (from our 21st century onwards) bears the signature of the historical event described by Rudolf Steiner in the following terms:
…before even a part of the third millennium of the post-Christian era has elapsed, there will be, in the West, an actual incarnation of Ahriman: Ahriman in the flesh. Humanity on earth cannot escape this incarnation of Ahriman. It will come inevitably. But what matters is that men shall find the right vantage-point from which to confront it.

Wherever preparation is being made for incarnations of this character, we must be alert to certain trends in evolution. A Being like Ahriman, who will incarnate in the West in time to come, prepares for this incarnation in advance. With a view to his incarnation on the earth, Ahriman guides certain forces in evolution in such a way that they may be of the greatest possible advantage to him. And evil would result were men to live on in a state of drowsy unawareness, unable to recognise certain phenomena in life as preparations for Ahriman's incarnation in the flesh. The right stand can be taken only by recognizing in one or another series of events the preparation that is being made by Ahriman for his earthly existence. And the time has now come for individual men to know which tendencies and events around them are machinations of Ahriman, helping him to prepare for his approaching incarnation.

The overwhelming spread of binary computer technology, which did not yet exist in Rudolf Steiner's time, has been the most influential factor paving the way for incarnation of Ahriman in that mighty Aspect of his cosmic being which we call the Sorat, the Binary Beast. Indeed, we may say this incarnation of Ahriman is the incarnation of the Binary Beast.
Ahriman comes from remote realms alien to human evolution on the earth. His interest is to divert this evolution from its natural path into other, inhuman forms of existence utterly removed from that which was intended for man by his Creators. Through unwholesome occult arts combined with dark technology, the physical incarnation of this alien divinity has been made possible:
This Ahrimanic incarnation cannot be averted; it is inevitable, for men must confront Ahriman face to face. He will be the individuality by whom it will be made clear to men what indescribable cleverness can be developed if they call to their help all that earthly forces can do to enhance cleverness and ingenuity. In the catastrophes that will befall humanity in the near future, men will become extremely inventive; many things discovered in the forces and substances of the universe will be used to provide nourishment for man. But these very discoveries will at the same time make it apparent that matter is connected with the organs of intellect, not with the organs of the spirit but of the intellect. People will learn what to eat and drink in order to become really clever. Eating and drinking cannot make them spiritual, but clever and astute, yes. Men have no knowledge of these things as yet; but not only will they be striven for, they will be the inevitable outcome of catastrophes looming in the near future. And certain secret societies – where preparations are already in train – will apply these things in such a way that the necessary conditions can be established for an actual incarnation of Ahriman on earth.

Although they are not yet common knowledge, these things have indeed been discovered by materialistic science. The role of artificial intelligence in these preparations for Ahriman's incarnation need hardly be stressed. Today there is scarcely a major research institute on earth that does not rely heavily on computers. Indeed, much research is done today not by experimenting with real substances and processes under investigation, but by investigating computer simulations of them!
Ahriman will not only draw into his power the out and out materialists. Many of those who incline to the spirit without actively pursuing spiritual development are falling victim to his supreme intelligence:
Through certain stupendous arts he would being to men all the clairvoyant knowledge which until they can be acquired only by dint of intense labour and effort. Men could live on as materialists, they could eat and drink – as much as may be left after the war! – and there would be no need for any spiritual efforts. The Ahrimanic streams would continue their unimpeded course. When Ahriman incarnates in the West at the appointed time, he would establish a great occult school for the practice of magic arts of the greatest grandeur, and what otherwise can be acquired only by strenuous effort would be poured over mankind.

Let it never be imagined that Ahriman will appear as a kind of hoaxer, playing mischievous tricks on human beings. No, indeed! Lovers of ease, who refuse to have anything to do with spiritual science, would fall pray to his magic, for by means of these stupendous magic arts he would be able to make great number of human beings into seers – but in such a way that the clairvoyance of each individual would be strictly differentiated. What one person would see, a second and a third would not see. Confusion would prevail and in spite of being made receptive to clairvoyant wisdom, men would inevitably fall into strife on account of the sheer diversity of their visions. Ultimately, however, they would all be satisfied with their own particular vision, for each of them would be able to see into the spiritual world. In this way all culture on the earth would fall prey to Ahriman. Men would succumb to Ahriman simply through not having acquired by their own efforts what Ahriman is ready and able to give them. No more evil advice could be given than to say: "Stay just as you are! Ahriman will make all of you clairvoyant if you so desire. And you will desire it because Ahriman's power will be very great." – But the result would be establishment of Ahriman's kingdom on earth and the overthrow of everything achieved hitherto by human culture; all the disastrous tendencies unconsciously cherished today would take effect.

Looking beyond the early centuries of the new millennium we see the whole of humanity gradually becoming naturally clairvoyant. Physically man will be weaker. The decline of his physical forces is a necessary part of evolution. It is not essentially a decline of man himself (unless he remains bound to the body), but only of his physical organism:
But now, in the Fifth Post-Atlantean epoch, he is on the path of decline, he is a being growing physically weaker, and to perceive the world in the way the Greek perceived it would be too much for his strength.

The physical senses, sight, hearing, etc, will fade and will be replaced, on the one hand – in the case of those who follow the spiritual path – by ever clearer clairvoyant perception, and, on the other hand, by artificial perception based on simulation devices. Digital image processing, computer simulation and the implantation of microprocessors in the human body are precursors of techniques which will largely replace physical sight and hearing for much of humanity. Even today people look at the world through television, electron microscopes, radio telescopes with computer images, digital-imaging medical diagnostic apparatus, and so on. Military pilots are trained in "flight simulators" – moderns of fighter-plane cockpits with windows and instruments that are television screens. The images react to the controls exactly as, in real life, the view out of the cockpit would change as the pilot manoeuvred his aircraft. And this dials of the instruments give the appropriate readings.

All this is leading to the replacement of real-world situations by simulations adapted to the needs and wishes of the individual. Such techniques are naturally open to abuse of all kinds, and bring with them the temptation to create imaginary worlds of artificially produced sensuous experience in which people can take refuge from the painful realities of life. Such worlds will be, after all, nothing more than the logical ultimate development of what began at the end of the nineteenth century as the cinema.

The true clairvoyance of the spiritual race may well be imitated, in caricature, by the use of "clairvoyance machines". The forerunners of such probable devices are the so-called "meditation machines" already in use in America, and in some parts of Europe. These first-generation meditation machines are designed to produce altered states of consciousness by applying stimuli to the brain. They are based on techniques developed over the years in medicine, principally in the field of electro-encephalography. It is reasonable to suppose that later generations of such machines will be more sophisticated and powerful, as manufacturers and users gather experience in the methods of influencing the mind by altering the electrical state of the brain.

In 2004 the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reported in its Technology Review that neuroscientists and engineers were developing methods to allow the brain to interact directly with computer networks, by implanting a microprocessor into the brain tissue. A specialist company in the United States called Cyberkinetics has received government approval for clinical trials of a brain implant intended to enable the minds of paralysed patients to communicate directly with their personal computers. Other research on similar lines is under way. The initial intention is to enable patients to relate to the real world through the computer. But, obviously, it is equally possible to enable them to relate to virtual worlds as though they were actually living in them. Indeed, to a considerable degree they are already living in them.

Human beings will separate progressively into two races, the spiritual race using the new clairvoyance in a moral way, the materialistic race rending more to look into the spiritual forces within matter and those of the sub-physical realms. Then, as the Anglo-Saxon Germanic civilisation continues, new faculties will appear spontaneously in man. He will learn to influence electrical processes directly by thought. He will also gain mastery over the physical and life processes involved in conception and birth, and will learn to determine what kind of souls shall incarnate. Genetic engineering, which has already taken its first faltering steps in work on clones and the manipulation of stem cells, will acquire advanced techniques of altering the physical body. This, too, is a necessary development, which also is open to abuse and will produce strange mutants. Behind the longing to control the coming into being of the physical form of man lies the occult knowledge hinted at in Goethe's Faust, in the creation of Homunculus, and the desire for physical immortality.

Advanced genetic manipulation, combined with the techniques that Rudolf Steiner called eugenic occultism (control of conception and birth so that only selected types of souls can incarnate) will have very far-reaching effects on social life. Medicine, too, will assume forms quite different from the present ones and will become very highly spiritualised in both good and evil ways.

During this fifth post-Atlantean period of culture, artificial intelligence will reach a very advanced stage of development, and men will grow together with machines. From the clumsy first beginnings of robotics that we know today, the most remarkable machine-beings will develop and will begin to assert their physical superiority in certain realms of outer life. Men will become increasingly conscious of the dead, and the souls who have passed through the gate of death will play an important role in all these developments. They will either work inspiringly from the spiritual world out of their own impulses, or will be drawn by evil arts into the web of artificial intelligence.

A further product of artificial intelligence, which will be brought progressively into relation with the cosmos and which will analyse cosmic influences in a materialistic way, will be that men will master new energies of immense power, far greater than that of nuclear fission or fusion. Through the misuse of vibratory energy, they will overreach themselves and set forces in motion that they cannot control. By that time, earth humanity will have reached out into the solar system through the on-going space conquest.

In all this, the greater part of humanity will suffer itself to be drawn into the life-style of the materialistic race, as science and technology become more and more incomprehensible to the man in the street. The direct coupling of man and computer – the implantation into the brain of microprocessors linked by ratio to the Internet – will allow those in power to program human minds. The Western occult brotherhoods and other leaders of the materialistic humanity will exercise increasing domination over mankind in general. As for the spiritual race, its members will gather in communities based on Christian brotherhood and freedom. Their own science and technology will take quite other forms from that of the materialistic race. They will do all in their power to help and protect those who seek to escape from the work of dark technology. It will remain possible for the members of the materialistic race to join those who follow the spiritual path of evolution.

This sounds very similar to the current state of things with Channeling, the New Age as a marketable social-engineering trend, and the widespread availability of "high level spiritual writing" FOR SALE at bookstores, online, etc.

Pretty much ANYTHING becoming even vaguely "popular" in the mainstream, whether it was an obscure band who was suddenly getting signed to a big record label, or a really "far out" channeler suddenly having their new book stocked on the shelves of Barnes & Noble in malls nationwide, has always been a huge red flag for me to "drop it like a hot potato". It makes me seem like an elitist crank to all the folks who just love to follow the hottest new trends, but I have never been able to "fake it" and remain engaged with any modality that suddenly has a big question-mark regarding its authenticity/purity.

This sounds just like light & sound brainwave entrainment technology, which uses digital audio signals and flashing LEDs to harmonize the brain hemispheres and induce specific brainwave states. Interestingly, two popular models marketed by Nick Begich at earthpulse.com are named the Sirius and the Orion.

http://www.earthpulse.com/epulseuploads/sirius.jpg

Less effective than the combination of light AND sound, is the use of only sound, in the form of binaural beat frequencies most famously used by Robert Monroe in his HemiSync recordings, and emulated by hundreds of New Age musicians and meditation CD recorders today. I wrote my thesis about it, which is a bit frustrating because I spent many many hours listening to these beats, reading all the interesting scientific literature about the technology which insisted there were beneficial effects, but never really experiencing much in the way of "deep relaxation", "heightened awareness" or "enhanced learning/memory" from the recordings. As usual, I chalked it up to my own personal failings.

I never liked the fact that what used to be an "analog" sound wave has been converted to digital information at whatever 44,100samples per second or whatever. The natural sinish-wave is turned into a square-wave.

It seems that I am in the process of discerning the many many harmful "healing modalities" that are out there, that I unknowingly stumbled upon and decided to "give a try" in my personal quest for spiritual connection as well as freedom from chronic anxiety and depression since childhood.

I have become so much more aware, but in my expanding awareness I am seeing more and more insidious deception, disguised as good-will. This whole Lucifer/Ahriman dynamic does make a large degree of sense. What is to be done, what can be done? It almost seems like a list of "harmful pseudo-spiritual modalities" needs to be written up (Montalk made a great list of pseudo/anti-spiritual thoughtforms in the orgone topic), so that serious intent can be applied to working AWAY from such modalities. The state things are in now, people like myself can get totally bogged down in MANY radically different healing modalities, and eventually find several of them to be totally deceptive or at least ineffective. It is my own fault for not having had the clarity of mind to know better from the beginning, but clearly this world is so oriented towards learning difficult lessons through stumbling into things unknowingly, that it seems more important now to discern how to *extricate* oneself from a bad situation. I wish this reality were not so linear that a mistake in our past cripples us from that moment forward, until that mistake is somehow "healed" or "overcome".

What a horrible, bleak future this planet has in store, projecting from this article, like something out of a terrible Terminator movie. Truly this universe seems to be a deeply psychotic and evil creation.

Do these communities of the spiritual race currently exist? It seems that in America in the late 60s, there were efforts to establish communal life etc, but I am not aware of many that are active today. I suppose they cannot be very large, and therefore maybe the majority of them are totally off the map. I am aware of the attempts to begin "New Paradigm Communities" living off-the-grid etc, but a lot of the initial establishment of these communities seems based on who can supply the largest amount of financial backing the operation, who can afford to buy the acreage of land, who can buy all the generators, etc. Very $$$-oriented to initiate such communities. My intention and desire are very strongly oriented towards establishing self-sustainability, self-sufficiency, however I have not been able to generate the cash-savings or the social network to establish even the beginnings of a New Paradigm Community.

Thanks for your posts on Theosophy, Druid, they have been insightful for me. Is your average Steiner-head still living in urban environs, dependant on corporate energy supplies, and buying imported foods from super markets, or has there been a move towards something different?

Re: The Machine-Planet: Our future? Darth Vader as Ahriman

It would be fanaticism to flee and despise technology. I use my PC everyday, a microwave, the subway, the bus, etc. This is all a certain amount of ahrimanity that a modern urban citizen cannot live without (at times).  We cannot shy away from ahrimanic and luciferic forces, they are there and we must work with them, not against, thru Christ-inspired and autonomous enlightened impulse of will and thought. But we must not let them gain power over us and distort our quest. Equilibrium (between luci-ahri) is never static nor stable. (Asuras and the Beast Sorat 666 are alien to the normal bounds of evolution, and thus are greater ennemies to fight with). 

But there is another form of technology that Steiner talks about and its not precisely what people call 'free energy', which implies electromagneticism and powers of subquanta flux. Steiner said that atoms do not really exist, like a rainbow is 'not really out there', and that in fact it is ahrimanic spirits who project this illusion before the eyes of the scientists. someone who has developped a higher quality of morality can act upon etheric waves and use the flow of ahrimanic beings behing matter in order, for instance, to make machines work by themselves, thereby freeing the workers from ingrate work in unhealthy and soulless factories.

The key to joining this community impulse of the 'spiritual race' is precisely to establish "self-sustainability, self-sufficiency". The threefold social order (not the traditional global Synarchy) elaborated by Steiner is the means by which this community forming can become concrete reality socially. Each sphere of social activity, Cultural-Spiritual, Economic, State Law, must be independent and separate. State must not impose its control on education, which must come out of the spiritual-cultural impulses. The Cultural-Spiritual must be supported financially by economical means, but must remain completely free and independent in its activity, self-organising. It is not really a kibbutz or a little communist farm, nor a capitalist society based on the 'inherent laws' of the free market.  The Spiritual-Cultural sector is gaining form through the rising of Civil Society, imposing itself as an active participant and power in Political and Economical meetings. Social networks organise this Civil Society. It tends to shift the course of the world towards a New Paradigm: that of a threefold social order. Many groups of the Civil Society did not understand that it is an independent sector from Economy and Political State, and they want either an empowerment of governments in economical activity (which must be done, yes, but not through a nation-state Total State power regressive agenda).

In Revelation of Saint John, the Philadelphia community represents the small part of humanity that will be the next Noah, surviving the great cataclysms of the War of All Against All (caused by explosion of egotism and destructive impulses lead by technologically and materialistically oriented mindset), because they will have established spiritual communities. This community-forming impulse (Philadelphia impulse) has been infiltrated and poisoned by sectarism, fanaticism, error, which is a tempation facing all communities. 

The point is not just to form networks, but to actively pursue an embetterment of our inner spiritual life and outer material activity. This way we also must act upon elementals, which fall all the more because of technological use and production (they are thrown out of matter in the process of machine making, in factories, but also through the use of machines). People who link themselves to elementals in a positive way carry an impulse that will give power to the threefold social ordering of what will not have succombed to the war of all against all. We must start right now of course, because many events, known to all of us, are due for 2012, a very important markpoint in our relationship towards both Michael-Christ and Ahriman.
