As with so many civilizations of the past, we live in a time of crisis. Contemporary culture is caught in a cul-de-sac, a battle zone of competing ideologies and dogmas. Although the human race has a long history of generating millenarian hype and apocalyptic panics, for many people the state we’re in right now really does have an air of gathering gloom and a palpable sense of ‘something’s got to give’ unlike any in the past. Leaving aside religious rapture fantasies and the techno-utopian view which posits a future of immortal human-machine hybrids populating the galaxy, there are two basic schools of thought concerning what lies ahead. The first essentially predicts the extinction of most if not all life on Earth due to environmental collapse. Lights out, game over. The second envisions a sort of slow-motion apocalypse as the natural and man-made systems upon which modern society depends gradually disintegrate making life as we know it, with its endless expansion and perpetual growth, simply impossible. With obstacles lying in every direction, where do we go from here?

Jasun Horsley – Sex, Occultism and Social Engineering: Part Three

February 19, 2019

Jasun Horsley 4

Jasun Horsley discusses his book ‘The Vice of Kings: How Socialism, Occultism, and the Sexual Revolution Engineered a Culture of Abuse’. In today’s post-truth world, we are becoming inundated with fantasy fiction, alternate truth, fake news, and grossly-oversimplified, wildly-exaggerated conspiracy theories in which cryptocratic power structures and shadowy elites rule our fates. But suppose the truth is both stranger than any fiction and more nuanced and disturbing than any theory? Suppose it is not conspiracy but complicity that creates our world?

Bernie Taylor – The Hero’s Journey and the Human Race – Part Two

November 26, 2018

Bernie Taylor 4

Bernie Taylor discusses his book ‘Before Orion – Finding the Face of the Hero’. The myth of the hero’s journey is at the heart of folklore worldwide among the ancients, indigenous peoples past and present, and even in our modern society as metaphors, allegories, archetypes, and symbols in popular culture. Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. He addresses a profound elephant in the room by opening up uncharted places in our history, exploring ideas unacceptable to mainstream archaeology and anthropology.

Mark Stavish – Egregores: The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny

October 1, 2018

Mark Stavish Egregores

Mark Stavish discusses his book ‘Egregores – The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny’. Do you know your own mind? Do you make your own decisions? Are you in control of your life? Or has someone or something else taken over? Beneath a veneer of rational choices, are you really in control of anything at all?
One of most important but little known concepts of Western occultism is that of the egregore, an autonomous psychic entity created by a collective group mind. An egregore is sustained by belief, ritual, and sacrifice, and relies upon the devotion of a group of people, from a small coven to an entire nation, for its existence. An egregore that receives enough sustenance can take on a life of its own, becoming an independent deity with powers its believers can use to further their own spiritual advancement and material desires.

Martin Demant Frederiksen – Why Do We Exist?

September 22, 2018

MDF 1

Martin Demant Frederiksen discusses nothing. Why is there something rather than nothing? Wouldn’t nothing have been a lot less trouble than something? But can nothing actually exist? Has there, in fact, always been something? Although answers to the vast, unfathomable mysteries of existence seem as distant as ever, we remain as compelled to seek them as countless generations before us. Indeed, as a species, we seem unable to truly thrive without some overarching sense of direction or purpose.

Gary Lachman – Dark Star Rising: Magick and Power in the Age of Trump

August 19, 2018

Gary Lachman Dark Star

Gary Lachman discusses his book ‘Dark Star Rising: Magick and Power in the Age of Trump’. Millions of people were shocked, surprised and even horrified by Donald Trump’s election as the 45th President of the United States. From the outset his detractors considered his candidacy little more than a sick joke; a populist publicity stunt designed simply to further his own career at the nation’s expense. Behind the public facade, however, unseen forces were at work and as the campaign wore on, those convinced of Trump’s imminent failure became less and less sure of themselves. His victory turned their world upside down. As pathetic as Hillary Clinton’s campaign was, something else was needed to explain Trump’s seemingly unlikely triumph. But just what might account for this polarising paradigm shift?

Carl Abrahamsson – Occulture: The Unseen Forces That Drive Culture Forward

July 18, 2018

Carl Abrahamsson Occulture

Carl Abrahamsson discusses his book ‘Occulture – The Unseen Forces That Drive Culture Forward’. Art, magic, and the occult have been intimately linked since our prehistoric ancestors created the first cave paintings some 50,000 years ago. As civilizations developed, these esoteric forces continued to drive culture forward, both visibly and behind the scenes, from the Hermetic ideas of the Renaissance, to the ethereal worlds of 19th century Symbolism, and the occult interests of the Surrealists. In this deep exploration of ‘occulture’ – the liminal space where art and magic meet – Carl Abrahamsson reveals the integral role played by magic and occultism in the development of culture throughout history as well as their relevance to the continuing survival of art and creativity.
