'The Tek-Gnostics Codex' publication date set


The publication date for the third and final volume of my Tek-Gnostics Series has been set for Saturday, May 23rd, 2020. The final editing process has (at last!) been completed and the E-book will be available on the 23rd, with the paperback edition available soon after, hopefully before the end of the day. In anticipation of the publication of The Codex, I have set up a pre-order page on amazon...

Although pre-orders (through amazon) are only available in the kindle edition, I will be launching a pre-order campaign on our mothership website's products page (aka: H.E.A.D.Gear Catalogue) in the days to come. On my site, pre-orders for the paperback edition will be made available. Ordering directly through the Tek-Gnostics site will come with extra perks and goodies, so watch this space for more details...

The Tek-Gnostics Trilogy has been decades in the making. The following, taken from the opening of the Tek-Gnostics Codex,  is a brief description of the entire series... 

As a system, Tek-Gnostics is a magickal technology… the balanced application of artifact and epiphany. A conceptual chameleon, it is at once a mythology, a revival of the ancient mysteries, a science fiction and a psychonautic entrainment system. It aggregates those earthling artifacts, technologies, and bodies of knowledge that facilitate human consciousness and our interaction with Universe.

Tek-Gnostics’ methodologies arise from the premise that the best way to understand Universe and our place in it, is through direct experience and revealed knowledge… or “Gnosis.” In its conception, this trilogy… this curious trifecta of High Strangeness… has sought that which cannot be named... the very essence of Universal manifestation. It has done so by pursuing tall tales, true lies and ancient technologies.

Book one, The Tek-Gnostics Heresies… brought us Tales of Wonder from the Collective Conscious. It examined humanity’s distant and near-past, while suggesting novel approaches in interpreting key historical events that have led us to our fantastical present-day. The Heresies framed such events as “cosmic triggers,” whose unfolding shaped modernity through that mechanism of meaningful coincidence… synchronicity. It chronicled the rise of psychedelic culture as an inoculation to the horrors of modernity. In pop-cultural reference from the pivotal nineteen sixties, it illuminated the great notion that we moderns are... “either on the bus or off the bus.”

Book two, Applied Tek-Gnostics… provided a Field Guide for the Collective Conscious. It fleshed out a tekgnostic cosmology, as well as presenting a cultural ethnography of emerging high weirdness. In these strange days, Applied Tek-Gnostics acts as a psychonautic field guide or basic user’s manual, intended to provide rudimentary Tantras (systems) and Yogas (practices) that will prove beneficial in navigating the “Brave Noö World” that we, the intrepid heirs to humanity are poised to inherit. In the words of the immaculate pop-poet of the sixties: Jim Morrison… “Strange days have found us.”

And so, imbued and immersed in strangeness, we come at last to this, the third and final installment, titled: The Tek-Gnostics Codex - Ancient Wisdom for the Collective Conscious. Herein are revealed foundational transcripts, philosophic fragments and obscure codices, transcribed from, and inspired by the collection of ancient writings uncovered in the Hunan archaeological dig, as well as earlier sites. Though modernized herein, the collected works are impossibly ancient in origin. For eons, they were transmitted as Oral teachings, before finally being written down at the close of the Neolithic era. As we shall see, the inspiration, translation and modernization of this edition, came from an unexpected and surprising source...


Stay tuned, dear intrepid psychonauts, for more details!!!
