TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Popular But Fatal Newage Themes


Since the millennium-old church morals have been dropped in favor of a so-called Renaissance preference for logic and other, let's say, non-religious concepts have been introduced, replacement ideas on morality and wisdom. Others have spontaneously sprouted up from the masses to replace religious dogma, ones that are just as bad or worse. Nothing's really changed. Clinging to secular or so-called spiritual themes can get you killed just as quickly as sticking to your bishop's advice. Used to be that ignoring an herbalist's [witch's] advice in favor of leeches could have you dying of the plague; nowadays there are other 'authorities' and their murderous suggestions or demands. One mad set of morals has been replaced for another.

Popular But Fatal Newage Themes [part 2]


The old dogma, at the very least though, was clear. The source of the religious themes was Rome (or its competitor), their managers: the priesthood; the place to go for your indoctrination was your local church; the alternative was excommunication, being shunned by the local community, and eternal damnation. Millions of witches [in a time when Europe only counted 30 million people to begin with] found out the hard way that the alternative could also entail torture, death, or a combination of the two. Voila, though: clarity. An insane, merciless system that can't be bargained with. We at least knew where we stood.
Most people nowadays suffer from the popular illusion that things have fundamentally improved and are now more supportive of sanity. When you really start to think about it, though, nothing has changed because the basic motivation is still the same: people cling to their paradigm in defiance of any sense of truth, reason, or responsibility to think for themselves. The paradigm may change but the madness remains. Used to be that faith in saints, angels, and 'the Lord' was supposed to get you through hardships, now it's positive thinking or (pseudo-)science. Used to be you went to your pastor for definitive answers that you would accept and defend, now it's doctors or whatever other authority lays claim to your gullibility.

The modern themes hardly ever get touched upon because they're so damn popular that bringing up what's wrong with them doesn't sell at best, calls upon you all manner of violence if you're unlucky. Try bringing up the flaws in the positive thinking paradigm and you'll soon experience some very negative feedback. Reminds me of a joke Bob Newheart once voiced on his show after getting attacked by some evangelist students: "I never realized a group of theologists could be so unforgiving"...
Inappropriate positive thinking will get you killed as surely and promptly as trusting your local priest once might've. Turn the other cheek when all logic and reason demand you fight or flee? How about pretending "Everything will work itself out" and reciting your empowering mantras instead of taking appropriate action? Nothing's changed.
More has remained the same on the moral front than most people realize but then the apparent fall of the churches' power never meant that their madness fell. We were told that we're born in sin and are inherently evil, nowadays we all reincarnate in order to learn, i.e. we're born stupid and ignorant. Same !@#$, different day.

Just like religious fanatics in all ages kid themselves that there are positive aspects to the madness they embrace, people nowadays don't recognize how dark the "Life is a school" theme is. The psychology classic I'm OK You're OK by Thomas Harris explains how psychologically sick/traumatized people play a game in which they take on the so-called "parent" role in which the "child" is talked down to, supposedly Not-OK. It's a power play of energies. The "parents" put down the "child" whatever way, and whenever, they can. The stupid child, the ignorant child, the disappointing child. It's a typical might = right power play and a continuance of the sick struggle that children in our authoritarian society have to suffer. The I'm OK, You're Not-OK theme is, therefore, recognized as a pathological theme by psychologists but when it comes to modern morality it's suddenly promoted to wisdom; we reincarnate because we're 'growing as tiny sparks of God' or however they verbalize their trash. In the end it's the same abuse. You are ignorant and stupid, a lost soul, and your incarnation in this body and time signifies how lacking you are. If you were 'good' or enough, you no longer would have to suffer incarnating at all anymore. You are not OK or you wouldn't be here. The opposite of an empowering thought yet accepted as modern newage wisdom.
The 'life is a school' theme takes on many other shades of course. The mind has an endless ability to conjure up variations to the You're Not-OK concept. The only thing that's really changed is that it now has a newage face. You're still screwed no matter what you do.

Another newage favorite is a reaction to the Buddhist karma theme: don't worry about ANYTHING and you'll just keep reincarnating until you reach Nirvana and are 'one with god' . The Buddhist doctrines on reincarnation were actually quite sophisticated and enlightened (depending on which Buddhist tradition you take) but newage thought has it all figured out and simplified: it doesn't matter WHAT you do, you'll always get another chance. You'll pay and pay for bad karma until you've figured things out, it's just a matter of time. Don't worry, be happy, and !@#$ around all you like in this incarnation; doesn't matter, you can't escape karma, and we all end up in Nirvana sooner or later.
The newage karma simplicity is reminiscent of the Calvin doctrine of predestined suffering after death due to your evil soul. It boils down to: "It doesn't matter what you do. Put on a happy face, bite the bullet, and don't think". It is a slave paradigm: you not only can't but you shouldn't even try to wisen up. It isn't empowering or inspiring, it's not even soothing; it's about shutting down both brain and heart and embracing mediocrity. Life-after-death-speak is as gloomy as it ever was.

Perhaps a logical extension of newage karma crap is the "Think positive" mantra. By even daring to think negative of anything, you condemn yourself. Realistically and psychologically speaking, the "Think positive" adage not only suggests one think within certain confines but feel that way too. It's okay to feel down or sad about something, of course, but then you have to snap out of it again or else the continuance of your grief is your own fault. In this way, by judging feelings and discouraging people to experience their whole range of emotions, the actual source of trauma and violence is supported. Pent-up, unresolved, and suppressed feelings and emotional experiences lie at the root of psychological disfunctionality, according to psychology. "Think positive" is just about the worst advice one might give someone who's suffering and as a cultural admonition it's about the most detrimental, unsupportive concept imanginable.
It, too, is part of the slave paradigm. "Think positive" keeps the slave psychologically weak, adding to trauma while cutting off the route to recovery. It discourages critical considerations and action against obvious incompetence and danger. There are no problems, right? Only challenges!
Real life, however, is sometimes about choosing AGAINST something. Cursing something evil can, on the cosmic scale, be a prayer for good. Refraining to curse the bad may, therefore, end up as a(n unconscious) choice in support of evil.
Religious dogma told us what to think, now we're being told what to feel. The very words of the mantra itself, "Think positive", fool us into believing somethings's changed: "We're telling you not to think about hell anymore but think positive, that's better, right?" But by denying your basic human sensibilities, you're creating the hell that they used to preach about. Now we're not only a culture of intellectual cripples but we're emotionally limited. The result is still a world of slaves.

Popular But Fatal Newage Themes [part 3]


Contrary to the medieval doctrines in which we were beset by demons and evil people all of the time, newage dogma has us discounting any and all actions as evil. Everyone's a little piece of divine light and we need to see the good in everyone and everything. The church used to say we were posessed or that it was our inherently evil nature; nowadays everyone's off the hook and it's all "character". Or stress. It's a variation to the "Think positive" theme but a particularly hazardous one. If everyone is basically good, then why should we defend against them? Good and bad actions are then basically all the same. Good people sometimes do bad things but it's all 'God'. We just need to see past the bad and recognize the good. It's OUR fault again! Experience, however, teaches us that there are assholes and bitches everywhere and that it's always the same people who end up making our lives difficult. The party-poopers are always the same ones. Newage airy-fairy goodness would demand that we're able to get along with everybody, no matter how clearly messed-up they are. Maybe you'd be better off calling an asshole a demon, though, than making little of obvious abuse. At least then you'd get some distance between yourself and the source of the problem ["evil"]. Again, we're thrown for a loop by the change in tactic: "We used to tell you that the world's full of demons and that you yourself were born in sin, now everyone's an angel. That's better, right?" But in a world full of obvious abuse [i.e. obvious to anyone with a functioning brain] treating life as a utopia is just as mad as treating it as the hell that the fundamenalists painted. We're still disempowered by madness.

The world is still controlled by authoritarian forces that only allow madness to spread uncontrolably. Your only hope for real liberation and empowerment lies in embracing a different paradigm than the popular one. The popular slave paradigm is built on tactics and disinformation that are meant to have you cripple yourself. By your own choice you bow to the greatest authority of all, the grey masses. Or you don't. This is divine intergalactic law (which newage will never get): it is only through your own choice not to use your divinely-embued abilities that you become weak. You are only a victim by choice. If you choose to allow others to rule over you, no matter their intentions for you, your choice rules your life. If you imply by your choice the following "If my master wants me to die, then i do so", you will die. But you didn't die as a victim by anyone's hand, you died by your own choice. A choice you can change. It is not you. "The choice is unwise" or "You were born in sin" are fundamentally different expressions in nature. You may have to sit down and become conscious about what the hell you've been chosing before you can change it, but you have a fighting chance. The universe is filled with other intelligent life, it's true, but there are divine laws that they abide by because they're not stupid. Their intelligence may be different from human, but they realize that karma is real and not to be fooled with (contrary to the disempowering version of karmic theory that newage popularizes). Parasitical intelligent life does want your blood, literally and energetically, but they're not stupid or suicidal. They will get your blood like a salesmen convinces a sucker to buy trash. They come to your door with some stupid story but it's up to you to play along or not. As long as you want to play the part of the poor victimized weak Earthling, there will be entities who will play the badguy to suit your needs. Are they truly bad, in an ultimate divine manner of speaking? They are as bad as the tick that you allow to suck your blood because you voluntarily entered a domain in which it thrives and refused to protect yourself against it.

Popular culture, modern and ancient, is a mix of popular media [amphi-theatre or CGI, it's basically the same], politics, and whatever else money can buy and control. Politics is made up of secular and religious power mongers, all out to convince you that you opt for the part of slave in their idea of a good play. The greatest authority are the masses themselves and how the masses go is usually a good enough reason for most people to choose the same. However,, thinking, acting, and choosing along with the masses, be it a majority or a minority, never discounts the universal and galactic law of free will; just because a million people choose for a certain mode of slavery doesn't mean that you're wise to choose along with them. A planet full of idiots will still not change universal laws; it is an example thereof. If the universe is full of 'individual sparks of God' who desire slavery, would 'God' deny Himself the experience? If the Earth is full of souls who choose to live out their incarnation on this planet as slaves, will 'God' free them? This is neither fundamentalist nor newage crap: you choose to live as slave or you just don't. You choose to have someone rule over you or you choose to rule over yourself. Whether you're conscious about the choices you make, matters little for the outcome. Maybe an unconscious life as a slave will have you more serious about your choices in your next incarnation, god knows. People in all ages have died for their particular version of insanity, this age will be no different. The newagers will die with the cry on their lips that at least they died knowing that they were thinking good of their killers. They'll still be killed. Religious fundamentalism, pseudo or commonly recognized as such, all draw in the same kind of souls, out to experience slavery, no matter the shape it takes in their particular day and age. The slaves are sacrificed like the cattle that they are in the eyes of their owners. The sane remain a minority. Newage is simply one of the shapes of popular madness in our time, a pseudo-religious minority. Think positive, believe in the good behind evil actions, suck the teat of popular madness and reap your rewards. Each age may have its particular shade of insanity, embraced by masses of souls for whatever reasons, but the simple choice always remains: whether you join the local idiots or no.

Telepathy (in the future)


A common fantasy among people talking about 2012 and some kind of rise in consciousness is that people in the future will be able to communicate through telepathy.

I believe that this belief is the result of a desire that stems from their inability to communicate.
People have a hard time expressing themselves and they HOPE that that's because of some kind of inherent problem with expression. They hope that their inability to express themselves isn't their fault.

But it is. And no wishy-washy telepathic fantasies will resolve their problems.


People have such a hard time expressing themselves because they don't take words seriously. This culture is all about intentions, feelings, and desires. Especially the cultural hype around so-called good intentions is a big deal. This has to do with the desire to defend that which authoritarian forces are constantly pulling.

The authoritarian psychological trauma that Alice Miller explains so thoroughly in her books describes how people feel the need to defend the authoritarian forces in their lives. These authoritarian forces, however, aren't friendly or beneficial and only serve their own ends. Their mischief, seeming incompetence, and downright evil is explained as good intentions gone wrong.
People explain away their own incompetence and mixed feelings, thoughts, and actions with good intentions, as well.
It is a cultural dilemma.

The truth about the matter lies in use of words and truth.
The above illustrated how the truth (about relationships) gets warped and results in (self)destructive attitudes and behavior.
Words have to do with one's own immature attitudes. That's about attitudes towards others, towards one's own subconscious and conscious mind, and towards words or how the subconscious mind expresses itself.

People commonly have minds that are constantly contradictory. Their ideas often conflict with one another. Their minds are a jumble of conflicting opinions, ideas, feelings, and theories. People say things that really make no sense when given any amount of thought at all.
People deal with this seeming insanity by explaining it away as the madness of LIFE or that life is just insane. The truth of the matter is that amassing a mind full of conflicting ideas and theories has nothing to do with the inherent shape of life. It has everything to do with a lack of appropriate considerations and a lack of discipline when it comes to using and assessing the value of words.

If your mind is full of conflicting ideas, a jumble of incoherent opinions and thoughts, being telepathic isn't going to solve that. That is the wishful-thinking dream.

It's logical, when you come to think of it. If one is going to PROGRESS to the next level of communication, i.e. telepathy, it's to be expected that one has first MASTERED the previous level, i.e. simply talking, i.e. having words and sane thoughts to express in the first place.
Communication is much more than just feelings and intentions. Ideas are built up of words and help to build theories and concepts. What is the mind without theories and concepts? But how can one ever attain sane theories and concepts while one is immature and inconsistent in the application of simple words?
Jumbled words lead to jumbled thoughts lead to a jumbled mind. The jumbled mind then utters jibberish.
The childish fantasy of so many people talking about a glorious age of mankind when people somehow miraculously become telepathic is actually suggesting that people with garbled mental disciplines will transcend that jibberish and produce coherent telepathic thoughts.
What? Did they somehow also miraculously get a new mind? 'Cause that's what it'll take for them to produce coherent thought.

The fact is that people with such an attitude towards communication are the LAST people who're likely to ever achieve the ability to be telepathic. Actually, even if a portion of mankind does somehow become telepathic, the ones who celebrate their own mind's immaturity by wishful thinking about it are the last ones to be able to handle it.

soul mates


The soul mate myth is similar to other pseudo-religious superstitions, like predestiny. Spiritually and otherwise immature folk commonly fall back on such default superstitions to deal with matters since they lack the sophistication to otherwise explain them.

"It just wasn't meant to be" is one such trite expression. Though there are only a handful of religions that speak of predistination [like Calvinism], one would guess by the percentages of people expounding such bs that Calvinism is popular as hell. The fact of the matter is that hardly any prophets or spiritual founders speak of it. Same with the soul mate idea: very popular but about as 'spiritual' as eating pork.

The soul mate myth is actually readily understood once one takes the rampant psychological illnesses into account. Basically the world is filled with people suffering from a psychological plague. This disease, brought on by Black Pedagogics, leaves people vulnerable to popular opinion. That's because it's an authoritarian trauma and the greatest authority of all is the power of the masses [the only power that even politicians fear].

People actually suffer from an endless variety of inhuman cultural ideas, each one about as insane as the next. Popular culture, for instance, demands that children are herded together in schools, only allowing boys and girls access to members of the same age. This unnatural stage in their conditioning [not until old folks homes will they again be so herded into age-homogenous conditions] cripples their emotional, social, and intellectual development. It's just one example of the insanity that rules mainstream culture.

In the end people are left with a lifestyle that is wholely inhuman and diseased. They seek somebody who is as uniquely traumatized as they themself are, or at least someone with a compatible trauma. It's like the endless array of physical diseases out there, which are just as unnecessary and just as unnatural. It's as if someone with Parkinson's disease can only mate with another Parkinson's patient or someone with throat cancer has to find someone else with throat cancer, or at least some kind of cancer. And then when they meet someone with a compatible trauma, someone with an attractive diseased psychological profile, they reckon they've found their soul mate because he or she was so hard to find.

The truth is that people find it so hard to find a compatible partner because just about none of them are psychologically healthy enough to deal with anyone.
This scarcity gives the impression that compatible mates are few and far between. Perhaps even unique.

A sober and common sense approach to the matter suggests that just about any healthy man should be able to mate with just about any healthy woman, psychologically speaking.
Charles Darwin's research points to a natural selection in this area. Apparently the physically healthiest specimens logically mate with similarly healthy and vibrant specimens of the opposite gender. An animal will seek the healthiest mate but if healthier specimens have already grabbed the healthiest specimens away, one is left with specimens that will ultimately turn out to be of comparible health. Natural selection within the species at work.

Like just about any zebra male will mate with any zebra mare, any human man can mate with any human female of comparable health. All kinds of INhuman presumptions, preferences, and prejudice will get in the way of things in psychologically challenged people, though.


In the end, even psychologically healthy humans are challenged by the inhuman culture because it's natural for women, especially, to adjust their mores to that of the masses. That's hard to explain [and utterly culturally incorrect!] but a logical result of female's right-hemisphere brain orientation. So in the end there are extremely few females that have human expectations and wishes. That leaves the few psychologically healthy men with slim pickings indeed.
This global inhuman culture stimulates explanations that stem from this inhumanity. Ignorance of what is human and lack of experience with what is human offers people very little to work with. This results in ideas that are lost souls clutching at straws.

The soul mate myth has no basis in reason, research, or common sense. It's a desperate wishful thinking default idea of no value whatsoever. It is a logical result of inhuman culture, a culture of a majority of sick people who are unsophisticated, immature, ignorant, psychologically traumatized, and generally insane (clinically speaking). What else would one expect from crazy people? emoticon

Re: Popular But Fatal Newage Themes


If Anyone Ever Channels Me, It’s Not Me
Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) said …
“A channeled entity is an electron fixation of the human mind. A channeler is a biological telephone booth. Mr. [Edgar] Cayce was the beeper type.”
… and …
“Before we are initiated, the auric web is very vulnerable, and there [at the openings] is where entities or disembodied beings can come in, and we have what is called mediumistic studies. People become very mediumistic and have entities coming through them and talking to them. At best, that is as far as they can go. Now we have this in the story of the witch at Endor, when Saul went to her to make contact with Samuel, a realized man, and Samuel rebuked Saul for doing such a thing, for stooping to such a low level of consciousness. No realized man will come through the body of a medium. Once he has realized God to the fullest, he could not come to that level of making communication with another human being.”
… and …
“If these entities are so great, why would they need YOUR body? If any of them get near me, I’ll flush them down the toilet in five minutes!”

Adano attributed almost all cases of channeling and possession to a combination of …
(1) self-hypnotism,
(2) a lack of self-importance, and
(3) an imbalance of the Spleen-Pancreas Meridian resulting in low blood sugar from the trauma of “not being appreciated.”
