1.17.19: Primal And Post-Human


“We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you’re giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told ‘no’, we’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”
–Terence McKenna


I don’t watch a lot of television. In fact, 75% of the programming I consume is from YouTube; and about 35% of that consists of videos of people either refurbishing old tape recorders from the 1970s or eating expired food.

So I was not aware that there was an actual program called “The Masked Singer.” Like…I knew vaguely that there was somebody on one of these singing competition shows dressed in an alien costume & people were speculating who it was…but I didn’t realize there was an entire series dedicated to this concept.

The Masked Singer, it seems to me, is like a show created to drive people who see the Illuminati everywhere completely fucking batshit insane. It’s like a “troll.” It’s like the producers and Vigilant Citizen made a deal behind the scenes to guarantee mutual viewership/readership. It’s like if you welded the aesthetic of Eyes Wide Shut with the most banal of the singing competition reality TV shows. But wasn’t this inevitable?

So here is “The Deer”:


And this is, to me, pretty potent primal imagery. I don’t see “the Illuminati” in it, but this is like a very deep masculine archetypal “horned god” type of vibe. This is a Patriarch, this is very alpha, this is strong ancient dude-type energy.

what a Horned God might look like

Now, if we unmask “The Deer,” will my assessment bear out?


Oh look, it’s legendary football hall-of-famer Terry Bradshaw. All the boxes ticked: patriarch, hyper-masculine, kinda ancient, alpha, dude-like guy.

And so this is all just very fascinating to me. The viewers are being served up these primal archetypal images. I don’t find it…sinister. I just find it very fascinating. This is television programming you’d see portrayed in a dystopian sci-fi movie from the 1990s. This is Demolition Man “three shells in the loo” level stuff right here.

I’m going to go back to watching videos of expired food.


But since I’m on this TV kick, let’s take a quick look at this quite interesting development from yesterday…the announcement of a new Netflix comedy called “Space Force.” You remember Space Force, right? That’s the thing Trump announced; a proposed new wing of the military.


What type of conservative boot-licking sycophantic entertainment arm of the industrial-governmental-military complex would be boosting Trump’s vision of this ultimately bellicose enterprise?


Wait…Greg Daniels is involved? The creator of the American version of The Office?

And…Steve Carell is starring in it?

So this is quite literally: “The Office in Space.”

And so I now direct you to something I had written in my “Message For 2019”:

Because a paradigm shift in technology is inevitably accompanied by a paradigm shift in the way people live and (most importantly) think. Just as people switch from driving their own cars to having automated cars drive them—that is a huge paradigm shift in the human consciousness & the way people relate to their environment.

We will start to “enlist” people to work in space—it might not fully happen in the 2020s, but moving forward that’s what’s going to happen. We’re going to have a sizable percentage of the population working in space—in space stations, or as colonists—these are things that are going to happen, and as the world turns and as these things develop, there’s a paradigm shift. There’s a paradigm shift in human consciousness.

Space Force the TV series has almost nothing (nothing) to do with “boosting” Trump. This initiative is far beyond Trump. You know what I mean?

Let’s take into consideration this Blind Item from Crazy Days And Nights (you know, that media outlet only second to The Washington Post in terms of reliability) that ran the same day as the Space Force announcement:

The federal government is financially backing an entire project for this streaming service just to get people to come around to this new branch of the government. Yes, it is a sitcom, but the government is the one who made sure the series got a greenlight.

OK, so if this is true, it’s obviously Space Force. And that wouldn’t be unprecedented; directors like Michael Bay have been working with the U.S. government for decades making films. It’s not a secret. The military lends backdrops and vehicles and stuff to help make the movie, and in turn they are allowed to “consult” on its content. This is standard Hollywood stuff.

The implication here, is: the American public is being “prepared” for a new “space” type paradigm, and the most trusted, mass-marketable TV sitcom crew is behind it. 


(Certainly, Seth McFarlane’s The Orville beat Space Force by a few years…but the latter is far more about “mainstreaming” these ideas to the public.)

Like I wrote in my “Message”—the masses have to be prepared for these new paradigms. It’s not “sinister”…it’s just reality. The reality is: the Chinese just landed a craft on the Dark Side of the Moon. The reality is: every country with any sort of budget is gearing up for the military and financial boom in outer space.

And so: is Space Force propaganda, of a type?



Well, that’s a lot. I’ll leave it there for now.

Have a good Thursday, and remember:

    I have never come across that McKenna quote, but it sums up exactly how I feel these days. Even my weirdo friends have been caught up in a net of someone else’s design. But, oh, it’s just entertainment, right? Right.

      1. It reminds me of a William Bramley line from his Gods of Eden book, “If you do not create your own universe, someone else will do it for you.” Which I always saw as the only verifiable example of trickle-down economics to provably exist.
