The Wonder of It All: Life Is Awesome

The World Truly Is a Theatre
We all live enchanted lives, meaning that we exist in a hypnotic state, entranced by our information flow, which includes our cultural and working environments, home, relationships and entertainment, anchored by our dietary habits and the physical exercise we take.

Living in this hypnotic state is not an error, it is not wrong, nor is it something to be angry about or ashamed of. It just is one of the essential truths of consciousness, of life—and it is true throughout any of the Enchantment levels. Life as we experience it is an unconsciously agreed-upon theatre.

The present-day dominant consensual agreement about the nature of reality—the Orange Uranus Enchantment—is maintained and reinforced through the television-newspaper media and the economic political system, a fact which a lot of people understand. The confidence and consistency of the essential underlying mythology of ‘scientism’, which is built upon neo-Darwinism, hypnotizes the world.

The psychology of this frequency of perception is based on the axiom that there are many different ways to do things. This is an enormous leap forward from the earlier moralist stage (Blue Saturn Enchantment), which is encoded with the thought form that there is only one way to do things (the ‘right’ way, as opposed to the ‘wrong’ way).

While the perception of the Orange Uranus Enchantment is that there are many different ways to do things, there is only one single ‘best’ method. There is one ‘winning way’; therefore there are winners and losers, winning paths and paths for losers. This is the ‘survival of the fittest’ mentality. Anything outside the winning way is an inferior way, an inferior perception, truth or belief, and is therefore not to be taken seriously.

The relative benevolence of the Orange Uranus market-forces mentality, though, does allow for other methods and other types of people. It allows religion to exist and it allows for the New Age to be. However, the axiom unfolds further as it is assumed to be essential that reality be defended for the sake of all people, which means not allowing ‘inferior’ perceptions or mythologies to be given the same respect or kudos as the central mythology, the proven ‘winner’ of materialism-scientism that is a prerequisite of the capitalist system. In the Uranus Enchantment, alternative views of reality are ridiculed and suppressed in the interests of the system; they are framed as jokes, often with some condescending compassion for the ‘poor losers’ who believe in them. The strategy is to subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) undermine alternative perceptions.

All of this constructed reality is but one step on the path of evolution. It is a partial truth, an expansion of truth compared with the fundamentalism of the absolute moralist.

Walls of Thought
What amazes and often awes me is the solidity of the hypnotic trance within the mainframe of our society. This solidity filters out deep enquiry on subjects that have an impressive reservoir of human testimony.

The information flow through the consensual machine churns ever-faster in order to maintain the dominant reality, yet holes are appearing in the walls along the borders. Outsides the walls, to those who are looking for the new world, the landscape appears radically different and far more spacious.

Two of the subjects I have continued to study over many years are UFOlogy and Big Foot. I can say with confidence that both of these phenomena are real phenomena, ie throughout recent history, and even way back in time, people have experienced, seen and interacted with these other beings. The question as to the absolute nature of Big Foot and the aliens that are essentially humanoid variants is another matter. The point here is that it is astonishing how easy it has been for the dominant power structure of the Orange Uranus perception to keep these subjects from serious investigation, sidelining them as ridiculous for so long in an increasingly connected world. This trivialization can’t last much longer.

Why are these subjects important? The current economic-political system is built upon an essential philosophic framework, a religion of sorts—neo-Darwinism. Throwing aliens and Big Foot into the pot changes the entire archaeological terrain. The artefacts of archaeology used to weave the accepted story of evolution are surprisingly sparse; nature tends to devour bones over time, thus the scientific evidence for a gradual transformation of one species into another is all but nonexistent. Evolution is not yet properly understood, so if we are to further our understanding we need to keep the research open.

The more I examine the ET and Big Foot testimony, the more I am amazed by the way these subjects are labelled mere fantasy.

Each Enchantment is a landscape that is filled with human activity and attention; it is an environment of the psyche. The expansion of consciousness on Earth right now means that the environment of the planetary psyche and its walls are straining from the pressure of a growing consciousness. This consciousness is seeking to tear down the ‘Berlin Wall’ of outdated beliefs. The current social system that is the product of the way the world is enchanted now (by the symbiosis of scientism and economics) is inadequate for our near future—inadequate because it cannot support the growing population, nor can it sustain our environment.

In complete contrast to the mainstream position, from an Enchantments perspective, the population explosion on Earth—while not without challenges—is a good thing. A bigger population leads to more social complexity; a larger landscape; a new, more expansive enchanted world; a larger, more abundant reality; and an expanded planetary consciousness.

Likewise, the environment, from the Enchantments perspective, is not merely physical, but is an environment of consciousness and energy, with what we normally think of as the environment, ie the physical world, being but part of the whole.

Without a change in consciousness, the environment is in danger and the world is overpopulated, as the present landscape of the collective psyche is too small.

The New Frontier
The Industrial Revolution and Age of Enlightenment led to an enormously expanded terrain for human life. However, the abundance thinking of yesterday is today’s poverty mentality.

It was the radicals who led the way in the past; it is the radicals who do so now. A little bit of punk attitude and the spirit of adventure is required. Life is always abundant—we just need to turn our gaze outwards, away from the hypnotist of materialism. So it is that once again we are preparing for the surge into an exponentially capacious reality—a reality of energy and consciousness.

Pioneering individuals, pockets of renegades, have broken through the walls and are forging pathways through the thicket, catching glimpses of a new landscape. Even though supply lines are limited, there is growing anticipation and wonder at just how magnificent and how voluminous, how immense, the new world will look. The pathways of alternative enquiry include the recapitulation of old ideas—refreshing, reinvigorating, but ultimately re-expressing the past. Such enquiry includes the nature of Earth energy, the Earth grid and the human aura, ancient civilizations and forgotten knowledge.

The prospectors of the new world come back with tales of open source economies, morphogenic fields, the human Noosphere, superluminal travel—faster than light speed, ie interstellar travel, as suggested by UFOs—and free energy from the quantum field. These prospectors bring us hope of a world so extraordinary and so filled with greater abundance and benevolence. Dare we believe?

The new landscape will most likely have at its foundation a sense of everydayness, its own normality; however, idealism is the impetus for change. It is imagination and its accompanying intensity of feeling that is the creative energy preceding the manifestation of experiential reality. We will not find certainty in this future world, but in the same breath, yesterday’s ‘certainties’ no longer serve us.

The world is enchanted and is in the process of re-enchantment. What theatre are we as a species to create next? It is time to construct a better dreamscape.

I am not so much complaining about suppression of facts—nor disinformation, nor psychological blindness, nor the narrowness of the intellectual dialectic—rather it is that I want to express the profound sense of awe I feel about how life is constructed in plain sight, right in front of us and through us and with our attention.

The enchanting nature of reality, its very construct, may be uncomfortable for the mind, but it is ultimately liberating for the consciousness. Dare we dream and leave the confines of the compound?
