In part one of the Archons series we examined the Archon mythology from a political/historical perspective. We drew a comparison with the great science fiction author, Philip K Dick’s infamous 2-3-74 incident… accordingly, The Empire Never Ended.
In part two, we explored the ancient Gnostic mythology of spiritual, occult forces, ancient astronaut theory, extra-terrestrial contact and modern ufology. Much of our researched Archon-as-extra-terrestrial material came from: metahistory.org and author John Lash. It soon became clear that Lash devoted much of his material to the correlation between ancient Gnostic mythology and the works of the granddaddy of armchair shamanism… the one and only Carlos Castaneda.
In part three, we examined Castaneda's final book, wherein Castaneda’s protagonist (antagonist?) …the Toltec sorcerer, Don Juan… challenges Castaneda to reconcile man's intelligence with the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, of his contradictory behavior. Don Juan relates this blatant contradiction in human intelligence to what he calls "the topic of topics," "the most serious topic in sorcery." This topic is predation. To the horrified astonishment of his apprentice, the elder sorcerer explains how humanity has been infiltrated by an alien mind parasite...
“We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don't do so...”
- from “The Active Side of Infinity” by Carlos Castaneda
Lash interpreted the Gnostic materials to suggest that humans possess a natural or “native mind” that is part of, and in tune with a perceived cosmic, universal intelligence. This native mind gets co-opted by an invasive, predatory intelligence, or mental construct, perpetuated by the (Gnostic) archons. Toltec sorcerers (per Castaneda) knew the archons as: “Flyers” and called this invasive mental construct the: “foreign installation.”
For purposes of illustrating Tek-Gnostics mythology, it is the concept of the foreign installation that is especially enlightening. In our modern world, we recognize the imposition of a variety mental constructs upon our natural mind… the seat of consciousness that we at Tek-Gnostics refer to as the “indigenous mind.” These mental or psychic intrusions take many forms. Advertising, from the dark wizards on Madison Avenue… Gossip, from our friends and neighbors… A variety of mental bombardments from the likes of facebook & twitter… you get the picture.
All of these intrusions interfere with our indigenous mind. These foreign installations seek to convert the way we think, in a way that is more favorable to their (ie: mental usurpers) motivations. Many of these psychic foreign intruders are exceptionally good at what they do. Their methods are very sophisticated and often are ingeniously entertaining. We are dazzled and our innate mental defenses are somewhat disarmed by sparkly, creative forms of amusement. This is the devious device wherein advertising gains its deceptive power. Accordingly, language is magick and eloquence is enchantment...
The Tek-Gnostics school of thought contends that there is little difference between “the effects” of the Toltec shamanic Flyers, Gnostic Archons, or the modern mind virus/meme wielded by Madison Avenue wizards. They share a common violation of intrusion and predation. The difference that separates these “entities” is primarily contextual. Different cultures view and describe phenomena according to their beliefs or place in time. Indeed the foreign installation takes many forms.
Psychic invasion can be taken seriously, if not literally. That is, the effects of such intrusion are equally damaging to the individual’s psyche, regardless of whether it originated from alien intruders, archonic entities, advertising agencies, or some MKULTRA/OFTEN psy-op… the intrusion itself is real. The foreign installation is just that… foreign… alien… originating outside of “self.”
The modern study of the intrusive mental construct phenomena is called: Memetics. As many of you know, Memetic theory explores mental content and the spread of viral cultural ideas… and is based on an analogy with Darwinian evolution, originating from the popularization of Richard Dawkins' 1976 book: The Selfish Gene. Proponents describe memetics as an approach to evolutionary models of cultural information transfer. In the words of historian and social critic, Morris Berman: "An idea is something you have… an ideology is something that has you."
At this point, it is important to make clear that we @ Tek-Gnostics do not favor or impose any particular world view, ideology or belief. That understanding… that path… is for your steps alone. We all choose our own reality vectors. The choosing, is each our own responsibility, as sentient beings. Whether you, dear reader, choose to believe in science, spiritualism or synchronicity… is a conspiracy solely between you and universe. As mentioned above, this interface was interpreted by the Gnostics and Toltecs as the natural or “native mind” that is part of, and in tune with a perceived cosmic, universal intelligence.
However, in so choosing… we are not free from natural consequences… so choose wisely. With that said… and regardless of point of origin, the foreign installation still wants to mess with us. This being the case, countermeasures are likely called for. It is interesting to note that, in going over the Gnostic/Castaneda material, Lash pointed out that…
“Don Juan makes a number of statements pertinent to strategies against alien intrusion. He says that the sorcerers of ancient times ‘found out that if they taxed the flyers’ mind with inner silence, the foreign installation would flee, giving to any one of the practitioners involved in this maneuver the total certainty of the mind’s foreign origin.’ In other words, the realization that another mind can operate in our minds only becomes fully clear and certain when the foreign mind has been exposed and expelled.”
This sounds suspiciously like an ancient analogy that describes the beneficial effect of meditation, upon the practitioner. Achieving a calm, centered, meditative state… quieting the mind from our own incessant mental chatter… causes the internal dialog… the foreign installation… to flee. In a meditative state, it becomes clear that our internal dialog is superficial… insincere, even artificial. It is as if these superfluous thoughts were imposed upon us.
Again, we all choose our own reality vectors. Call it meditation, prayer, mindfulness, contemplation or consciousness hacking. The ancient Gnostics, the Toltec sorcerers, were describing a methodology. In their ancient codices and texts, they were creating field guides. They were chronicling technologies… countermeasures… to combat the foreign installation.
So too, do we today concern ourselves with developing countermeasures to contend with the foreign installation. We may use contemporary terminology. The tekgnostic world view may utilize metaphors such as “mind virus” or “meme” to refer to the foreign installation. We may speak in terms of consciousness hacking, as opposed to prayer, in describing such countermeasures. Whatever mythology we pursue… those among us who develop techniques to quiet our minds, recognize the predator… the foreign intrusion. Our internal exercises erase… delete… the foreign installation.
We describe these narratives, these reality vectors as mythologies. Again, they can also be considered field guides. The modern metaphors… the modern technologies can be included alongside the ancient ones. More tools for the psychic toolbox.
We take responsibility for our own nervous system. We exercise the responsibility to overwrite these inhibiting and interfering mind viruses. We reboot our consciousness to ensure our operating systems do not get bogged down by unwanted programs. We choose to uninstall the foreign installation. By what (whose?) authority do we take these measures, you might ask? We at Tek-Gnostics like to refer to this authority… this autonomy as… free will.
