Beyond Comprehension; Installment VII ~ About Living Sentience, Cosmos and Humanity in Three Parts

Part I: Intro

In Orwell’s 1984, O’Brien delineates goal;

“…The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness; only power, pure power.”

In his continued exposition;

“…Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power…”

The Contemporary World

Via Installment VI, we saw that the limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency + Group Mind/Group Think = Consensus Reality.

As Orwell observed, the object of Consensus Realty is Consensus Realty.

In an article entitled “Plutocracy in America” ( )

Michael Brenner astutely observes Consensus Realty by another name;

“Furthermore, the moving forces of the plutocracy are not very organized. There is no conspiracy as such. It is the convergence of outlook among disparate persons in different parts of the system that has accomplished the revolution in American public life, public discourse, and public philosophy. Nobody had to indoctrinate Barack Obama in 2008-2009 or intimidate him or bribe him. He came to the plutocrats on his own volition with his mind-set and values already in conformity with the plutocracy’s view of itself and of America.”

The Object

Gertrude Stein would have written;

The object of consensus realty is the object the object is consensus reality.

Buying into the Horizontal

Scott Creighton at American Everyman observes that the same forces that move Obama to buy the horizontal propel the masses, individually and collectively, to do likewise (;

As I have stated many times, it’s not a super-secret cult of baby sacrificing shape shifting aliens, it’s not an Illuminati cult descended from the blood of Jesus, it’s not “the JeeewwoOOoooOos” or “soooOOooOOoocialists” or all that other crap… it’s an ideology … a cancer feeding on a living host… that leads people to think that their only choices are to either serve the ideology or to watch their lives waste away in obscurity. There doesn’t need to be altars in secret gardens or threats, people come to understand, accept and choose to give their service to the plutocrats of their own free will by telling themselves that by serving they’re smarter than everyone else.

Consensus Reality is Power and dedication to, yearning for and belief in the limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency + Group Mind/Group Think represents buy-in at any level (from Prez of the corp U.S. to street life.)


O’Brien fleshes out Power’s purpose when he says;

“…Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in shapes of your own choosing…”

As examples, O’Brien pronounces;

“…We make the laws of nature. Nothing exists except through human consciousness…When we navigate the ocean, or when we predict an eclipse, we often find it convenient to assume that the earth goes round the sun and that the stars are millions upon millions of kilometers away. But what of it? Do you suppose it is beyond us to produce a dual system of astronomy? The stars can be near or distant as we need them. Do you suppose our mathematicians are unequal to that?”

Does Consensus Reality include Living Sentience? Do rocks and plants, trees and animals, crustaceans and the natural world including the Cosmos possess Living Sentience? If so, from whence does that sentience originate?  If sentient, does that Living Sentience subscribe to Consensus Realty? If not, can humanity access that Living Sentience? If so, how?


Beyond Comprehension; Installment VI ~ The Crutch that Supports Consensus Reality

Global Mindset: The limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency + Group Mind/Group Think = Consensus Reality.

Cause: The limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency + Group Mind/Group Think =

Effect: Consensus Reality.

The Crutch: Cause and Effect

Cause and effect or causation represents a widespread, millennia-old attempt to comprehend the relationship between the cosmos and humanity. Originally attributed to Aristotle, exploration of cause and effect became a hallmark of western thought and shaped various philosophies, religions and artistic forms.

In the contemporary world, monetized versions of cause and effect dominate the fields of;

1)   Science/Big Bang/Quantum Theories

2)   Physics/Synchronicity

3)   Engineering/Construction/Physical Domination

4)   Psychology/Physiology

5)   Medicine/Pharma/GMO

6)   Statistics/Analysis/The Mind

7)   Management/Marketing/Sales/Distribution

8)   Humanities/Literature/Art/Intellectualism

9)   Religion/Patriarchy/Anthropology

10) Economics/Banking/Militarism

11) History/Political Science/Government/Sociology

12) Philosophy/Logic

~ ~ ~

The Unstated World

Lost in the advance of western thought is an unstated world of indigenous tradition and relationship to beings considered sentient (the Earth, rocks, plants, animals, water) and beyond cause and effect.

In that world, intent manifests as sentience, as living consciousness. In that world, humanity is younger brother meant to study to learn from and to live in harmony with established sentience.

Within Cause and Effect

The unstated world continually seeps into the contemporary world through intuition, inspiration, dreams and hosts of unexplained phenomena. Creative types within all disciplines commonly attribute breakthrough advances (theories, art forms, technologies) to dream state inspirations.

Upon monetization, those breakthroughs become subject to Global Mindset;

The limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency + Group Mind/Group Think = Consensus Reality.

In that manner, intuition, inspiration, dreams and hosts of unexplained phenomena acquire value within the contemporary world.

Beyond Comprehension; Installment V ~ The Limitless

Installment V: The limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency + Group Mind/Group Think = Consensus Reality.

Transforming Privately Issued Debt into Publicly Administered Debt Loads

Not through dictatorship that forces singular will unto masses but through democracy, a surer, more-long-lasting hand that transfers privately incurred debt (national monetary stocks at compounding interest) onto a nation’s supposed ownership, the people. Ceaseless collections of that compounding interest (the effects of privately-owned currency lent onto an unsuspecting public) occur through wide ranges of taxation, licensing, fees and payment of deflated wages via taxation, licensing, fees for inflated goods and services including necessary assets (housing, public works, etc.).

In fictions (mass media, religion, education, etc.), familial hierarchical owners of the privately held currency system train the people to believe a basic untruth (the superiority of democracy to other forms of government and/or self-rule) necessary to sustain unrelenting collections of compounding interest.

The Enactment of Moral Certitude

By transferring privately incurred debt onto and collecting that debt in various forms from the masses, familial hierarchies, close associates and corporate-oriented participants feed from an expanding public trough (the issue of private currency necessary to maintain seeming reality). In doing so, they avow Strauss’s principle;

limitless capital accumulation is the highest right and moral duty.

In Reaction

Protests, Mass Movements, Resistance, Rebellions represent horizontal phenomena, easily marginalized and if attaining critical mass, easily infiltrated and destroyed from within.

In Support/The People/Group Mind/Group Think

Once marginalized, Protests, Mass Movements, Resistance and Rebellion disassemble. Participants, lured by the alternative (as promoted by mass media, religion, education, etc.), seek opportunities to accumulate capital. The same moral certitude that empowers the elite “trickles down” to the people.

Consensus Reality

The limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency + Group Mind/Group Think = Consensus Reality.


In the “horizontal”, approaching tyranny is unstoppable. In the widest sense, every horizontal action and thought contributes to and empowers the same tyranny.

The Crutch that supports Consensus Reality

Beyond Comprehension; Installment IV ~ The Natural World, Extends

The natural world extends into the cosmos, is the cosmos, is the universe.

As the Cosmos and the Universe

Pre-patriarchal traditions recognized that magical and spiritual powers called mana, wakonda, dema, deva and other names animated the Earth and charged nature.

By referencing these powers as names, early cultures observed personality within the powers, imagined in the form of a Goddess, not as an off-planet male God.

In Old Egypt, she was Isis-Hathor: Oldest of the Old. She was the Goddess from whom all Becoming arose. She was the Great Lady, Mistress of Shelter, Mistress of Heaven, Mistress of the House of Life, Mistress of the Divine Word.

The Power of the Cosmos, the Power of the Universe

The word sacred originates from the Sanskrit root sak-, “to be powerful”.

Whatever supports something must be more powerful than that which it supports. In the same way, the natural world (which supports life) is more powerful than any species (including human) woven into the web of Nature.

That act of support is sacred.

To the Indigenous

In another view of the same phenomenon, the Blackfeet tribes of Montana perceive the Sun as an other-than-human person and as an animating life principle.

The Blackfeet pray not to the Sun as a static process (the Western view) but to a being with personality whose presence lightens the world (Dolores LaChapelle, Sacred Land, Sacred Sex, Rapture of the Deep, citing Jay Vest, p. 124).

Among indigenous peoples, the various tribes and nations are children of the Great Mother. The ancient Celts considered themselves the Tuatha de Danaan, “Children of Dana,” the primordial Mother Goddess who gave her name to the River Danube.

The Animating Personality

If life flows from these animating powers that possess personality, the human condition (horizontal) does not limit consciousness. Instead, a living, sentient, more powerful conscious organism – the cosmos, the universe, the entirety of the natural world, a living personality (the vertical) – animates the Earth and all species including humanity.

Artists and Poets, Doers of the Unimaginable and Tesla

In tapping into the animating personality, artists and poets, doers of the unimaginable and Tesla access a precious dose of nous, or “divine knowing, the sacred.”

That knowing manifests among humans, plants, minerals and animals. When we perceive feelings in plants and animals, rocks and stones, we do not anthropomorphize.

To the contrary, we share in commonality the “divine knowing, the sacred.”

In that sharing, we align with the vertical, the source and support of all life.

In recognizing source, the seed of divine intelligence unfolding amongst the natural world, among all living beings, we participate in the intent of the animating personality.

In Opposition/The Horizontal

In hopeless opposition to “divine knowing, the sacred”, in direct contrast to the power of the animating personality, a carefully crafted, rigidly enforced program of consensus reality emphasizes limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency. Diverting human imagination from “divine knowing, the sacred” separates humanity from nature and the natural world.

That separation reveals a contrasting intent in which the effects of consensus reality produce extreme, non-sensical environments and living conditions that oppose “divine knowing, the sacred.”

Beyond Comprehension; Installment III ~ Another Force

In the face of the limitless “horizontal” accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency, another more powerful force resounds through the cosmos to realign the minds, soul purposes and spiritual intents of all sentience.

As Inspiration

Behind creativity, that universal force inspires poets, writers, artists, thinkers, makers of things, inventors and doers of extraordinary deeds. Known as the Muse, that power streams through the Universe and is, in many ways, the Universe.

As a Tangible Force

The great Serbian inventor Nikolai Tesla tapped into the same power to seemingly create the technology that shapes the contemporary world. To know more;

To view an inventory of Tesla’s patents, please see;

Tesla’s Tap Root

A gifted researcher and voracious reader, Tesla discovered forgotten volumes of natural science written by Goethe. In reading Goethe to the exclu­sion of other philosophies, sensations, consciousness and corresponding structures that emanated from the natural world would form the basis of his resulting technologies.

Knowing the Universal Power/The Muse

The Aeneid of the Latin poet Virgil [born 70 BCE] begins;

“Oh Muse, retell to me now the causes of what happened then.” (as translated by mythologist and metahistorian John Lamb Lash – see

In Virgil’s inquiry, he asks for two revelations: for the Muse to retell what she knows about the founding of Rome, and for her to inform him of causes that came about in the past that explain the founding.

Virgil’s capacity to tell the story of Aeneas, the mythical founder of Rome, came not from his poetic talents or personal memory. Instead, the Muse to whom he appealed downloaded history, meaning and structure.
Characteristics of the Muse:

  1. A Primal Memory Source
  2. A Knower of Causality
  3. An Author of Moral Order
  4. A Source of Intent and Purposefulness

Antiquity and Contemporary Times

In the classical/pre-patriarchal art and myth of the West, the Muse is a version of a primal deity called “the goddess of memory.” By invoking her, Virgil acknowledged his reliance on a primal memory source for mythic recitation.

He did not author myth. He crafted the language but he did not create the mythos. He repeated what the Muse told him. He relied on her to fathom the causes of things past and the decisive events that led to Rome’s known historical founding.

Virgil did not invent mythical adventures. The Muse disclosed those events. Nikolai Tesla did not fathom the natural power of the universe. The Muse revealed her powers to him.

The Muse

In acts of remembering and disclosure rests a superhuman power, conceived as feminine, capable of direct input into human psyches.

As a divine, supernatural entity in some way connected to the natural world, the Muse dictates to receptive human instruments. According to Virgil and in harmony with revelations of the indigenous world, we remember in special ways when the Muse remembers for us.

Virgil and Tesla remembered in special ways. Those ways oppose the limitless accumulation of privately owned debt-based currency.

Horizontal vs. Vertical

The tasks and responsibilities of daily life require seeming “horizontal” focus of attention. Pressures, especially horizontal financial pressures, disconnect humanity from “vertical” soul purposes (individual and ancestral) and broader-based spiritual perspectives and realities. The horizontal worldwide usury-based private currency system opposes development of and reliance upon vertical spiritual resources.

Moral Certitude

As an outgrowth of the worldwide usury-based private currency system, limitless capital accumulation is the highest right and moral duty. (Leo Strauss, Natural Right and History)

The following represents the fulfillment of the same moral certitude by the same entities that own the worldwide usury-based private currency system:

  • Globalization
  • The Global War on Terror and Terrorism
  • Privatization
  • Austerity Campaigns
  • Wars Without End
  • Destabilization and Regime Change
  • Control of and Commoditizing of all Human Activity, and
  • The Destruction of Law and Natural Resources

Horizontal Economics: Overview of the Architecture

Of these horizontal (non-spiritual) phenomena be known;

1)   The British Law of 1666 (II Charles, c.5), also known as The Free Coinage Act provides the legal (not lawful) underpinnings of the worldwide usury-based private currency system in which banker/elite partnerships/corporate entities known commonly as countries (the United States, the UK, France and all other national identities) issue IOUs disguised as dollars, euros, pounds, francs, etc.

2)   The Bank of England, established in 1694 to issue the above usury-based private currency within the banker/elite partnership/corporate entity known as the British Empire, became the model for similar implementation (The Bank of France, The Federal Reserve, etc.) within other banker/elite partnership/corporate entities (France, the United States, etc.).

3)   Supposed National and Global Indebtedness represent the collective, historical issue and continual rollover of those IOUs.

4)   Inflation, Booms and Bubbles represent the expansionary issue of the above IOUs.

5)   Periodic Recessions, Depressions and Austerity Measures represent debt-calls on the same IOUs.

6)   The effects and seemingly unrelated consequences of the worldwide usury-based private currency system accompany horizontal thought and action.

7)   Because the invisible owners of the worldwide usury-based private currency system participate in every human exchange, horizontal groupthink prevails.

8)   Horizontal groupthink produces consensus.

9)   That consensus shapes and colors seeming reality.

10)   That seeming reality represents distortions of the human mind, soul purpose and spiritual intent.

Beyond Comprehension; Installment 1

Prophecies, old and new, coupled with direct observation of factual evidence cause us, if we dare, to shudder with fear when we consider the course of this world.

Why fear?

In my first installment of Beyond Comprehension, I take a different route, beginning in the “vertical”, unaffected world of Spirit where wisdom and inspiration resound in contrast to the “horizontal” affections of the material world.

And while I stood there
I saw more than I can tell,
and I understood more than I saw;
for I was seeing in a sacred manner
the shapes of things in the spirit,
and the shape of all shapes as they must
live together like one being.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

We return thanks to our mother, the earth,
which sustains us.

We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.

We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.

We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.

We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.

Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in Whom is embodied all goodness,
and Who directs all things for the good of Her children.

One of his students asked Buddha, “Are you the messiah?”

“No”, answered Buddha.

“Then are you a healer?”

“No”, Buddha replied.

“Then are you a teacher?” the student persisted.

“No, I am not a teacher.”

“Then what are you?” asked the student, exasperated.

“I am awake”, Buddha replied.
