Our Civilization: The Usure

July 31, 2012

I’ve invested a great deal of thought into how to describe and talk about our civilization. One of the hardest aspects of that job is defining the limits of that civilization to my satisfaction. It’s easy enough to do if you accept the exoterric perspective, but for me the universe is a bit larger and more complicated.

Our civilization is not defined by humanity because there are humans that are not part of it, uncontacted amazonian tribes, or perhaps humans from other worlds or states of being.

Our civilization is not defined by nationality because that image has become an even more hollow tool of rhetoric than it was during the twentieth century. Americans and Chinese and Iranians and Brazilians all live by the same up and down turns of globalized world currency and commodity markets, operated and managed by different factions of the same class of persons with aligned interests.

Our civilization is not defined by religions or cultures because those terms have long since lost the power to define a way of life or subsistence, though it is the basis of more localized identity, prejudices and atrocities.

Our civilization is defined by two criteria, one minor and one major. The minor criteria is our technology and method of science which has provided us collective dominion over some grosser and simplistic aspects of physical reality. The major criteria is the system of banking and finance that has subtly enveloped, encysted and metastasized throughout our consciousnesses and our material sphere.

The terms by which a human life is now measured are the terms of a bank loan. Finance and banking are the systems of magical symbology by which order is maintained and right discerned from wrong.

I do not speak of greed, or acquisitiveness. Those qualities in one form or another have lived in every age. I am talking about he domination of the human consciousness by the unquestioned symbols of finance. I am talking about the debasement of quality, value and worth themselves. When all things are measured in terms of money then all things become equivalent, fungible, interchangeable and completely without unique qualities.

Money destroys everything because it renders everything equivalent.

We the people of this civilization are the Usure. Our lives are measured in terms of debt. We live by debt, we die by debt. Debt is our food and our shelter. Debt is our work and our lively hood. I say this because we have come to act, think and breath by usury. Usury of the Earth and usury of humanity. This is what has defined us. The system of monies that we have created and spread.

The Usure live in the Company Town. The Company Town is institutions and infrastructure, but it is also an idea. The Company Town is everywhere that we buy food and sell our lives for currencies that can be traded and exchanged in massive volumes on international, nearly invisible markets. Currencies that are given worth by our participation, our blood and our lifeforce, but that we cannot control. The Company Town is where everything you can do that the system recognizes as real feeds your life back into that system. It doesn’t matter if you are a doctor or an aid worker. What you do feeds back into the system that turns currencies into weapons.

These weapons are not swords or guns or bombs, though they are counted among the ranks. The weapons of which I speak are ubiquitous and pervasive. They invade every crevice, or space where they may live. They displace the spirit. They are mind weapons. They are weapons to attack the soul, to leave it injured and hidden. When a living being accepts that its self can be measured by quantity, by number and currency, then it has separated itself from the power of life. That being has accepted a little death into its heart and it will know death.

Bow or Raise

Bow your head or raise it. The only difference is which half of the universe you are giving your eyes to.

Aetheric Arts and Rigorous Intuition

July 10, 2012

I’ve added two new links. The first is for Aetheric Arts, a blog by Joseph Max about radionics in general and specifically devices of his own construction. It’s a lovely resource for anyone who finds radionics too mystifying, obscure or filled with absurd charlatanry to venture an interest.

The second link is for the blog called Rigorous Intuition and written by Jeff Wells. It runs a wide gamut of topics, from ufology, to deep politics to ritual abuse. I’ve spent the last week working my way through the tip of the iceberg in just the “The Military-Occult Complex, ritual abuse/mind control, and ‘High Weirdness'” section. Each of Jeff’s posts is well researched, well written and well considered as far as I have read. There is a new home page in the works for Rigorous intuition, but it’s not quite there yet.

The One Thing That I Believe

July 9, 2012

In the infinite complexity and diversity of all being, every being is connected to every other and is ultimately whole.

That is the only thing that I know I believe. I hold that one thought above all evidence. It’s a part of me. I wouldn’t be Christopher Taylor, or Sleeping Decadence Warrior, or any of the other names if somewhere within me there wasn’t a burning fiber that said “NO” and looked to the stars every time someone or something tried to put me in a cage.

I’ve been in places where there is no energy medicine and there are no shamans. I have been in places with no sky and no stars. I’m not talking about the sight of stars outside. I’m talking about the stars inside your skull, inside the lucid light of your heart-mind. I’m talking about places where they say you aren’t ever get out and you aren’t getting any help from synchronicity or your spirit guides. Concentration camps for the soul where the rules twist you down deep and take away everything you ever had that wasn’t bolted down. All you have in those places is that sliver of light inside you that says “NO” and looks up every time they put you down and try to make you into something that you can’t ever be.

There are a lot of corollaries to my belief. The first is that there is no end, only change. The second is that time is only important when it is happening and that failure is temporal. The third is that no one is lost forever, though they may need to die and change many times before they can see again. The fourth is that the most ultimately harmful thing you can do to yourself and others is to lock yourself away from the infinity of being, regardless of whether the means is through shame, chosen ignorance, fear or the craving for illusion. The fifth is that you can never be separated from the truth and all being, only in this moment can you experience that through a sequence of self choices.

There is pain and loss in my universe, and when you do a kindness there is no ultimate rule that kindness will come back to you, but there is no waste in my universe. Though you watered the dessert and nothing grew, you gave of yourself and it mattered. Never stop growing. Never stop opening yourself. Never stop deepening. Never be afraid to change, but always try to make it good. I have seen the faces of evil and the masks of god. Being afraid doesn’t keep the darkness out and there is always something worth seeing if you can see through other eyes.

This is what I believe.
