The works of multiple scholars, from Plato to Manly P. Hall and further down the line, suggest it is essentially the use of rituals and techniques to invoke and control “spirits” or lifeforms that could be existing within other dimensions or worlds. For example, according to Hall, “a magician, enveloped in sanctified vestments and carrying a wand inscribed with hieroglyphic figures, could by the power vested in certain words and symbols control the invisible inhabitants of the elements and of the astral world. While the elaborate ceremonial magic of antiquity was not necessarily evil, there arose from its perversion several false schools of sorcery, or black magic.”
A distinction is made early in the article about black magic and white magic. Basically, black magic is the process of using entities to accomplish a goal through ceremonial magic.

“By means of the secret processes of ceremonial magic it is possible to contact these invisible creatures and gain their help in some human undertaking. Good spirits willingly lend their assistance to any worthy enterprise, but evil spirits serve only those who live to pervert and destroy. . . . The most dangerous form of black magic is the scientific perversion of occult power for the gratification of personal desire.”
In his book, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, he goes on to describe how the elites in ancient Egypt, all the way up to the present day, have used these concepts in conjunction with their desire to completely control our world. Today, it starts with the government, up through the corporations and further along up the pyramid into our major financial institutions, into the Vatican and beyond.
Religion is interesting, to say the least. On one hand, you have multiple religions preaching the same message at their core, and, on the other hand, it’s not uncommon to come across several contradictions between them all. Don’t forget about different interpretations of the same religion, which has created ‘mini-religion’ spin-offs which take these different interpretations into account. Obviously, multiple religions and their own interpretation of reality resonate with millions of people, and that’s because they preach a message of peace, love, non-violence and good-will.
It’s hard to understand how conflict (like war) can arise with religion being the catalyst, especially if most preach a message of peace and love. This means that all those who claim to fight in the name of religion, must have a twisted understanding of the religion they claim, or, something else is going on… It’s completely hypocritical.
A great modern day example would be the “Islamic State.” Today, it’s not a perspective that’s commonly expressed by mainstream media, but despite that, multiple professors, politicians and more have emphasized that the Islamic Sate, the group the United States and their allies claim to be fighting against, is actually a creation of the United States (and their allies) themselves. You can read more about that here.
This is supported by more than just research and insider witness testimony, but by multiple documents that have surfaced, as well as multiple examples. It’s called false flag terrorism, and it’s been around for decades. The greatest example of this could be 9/11, an event created and used in order to justify the invasion of another country, and impose ‘their’ own ideas and political will on other countries, as well as globalization and resource extraction. This tragic event served as a big catalyst with regards to more people becoming aware of extreme corruption within our own governments.
They’ve had plans to do this for years, with multiple countries, as emphasized years ago by Four Star General, and NATO Supreme Allied Commander General Wesley Clark. As he says, there are no legitimate reasons to go to war. Are the “powers that be” manufacturing problems so they themselves can propose the solution?

In this way, and many others, religion has been used. It’s become dogma, rather than a question for knowledge, wisdom, truth, and spiritual guidelines, and a tool to push elitist political agendas. It’s been used to manipulate the decisions and behaviours of others, as well as close off their minds to new information that’s emerging which challenge the belief system of that particular religion. It’s also been used, in some cases, to drive a tremendous amount of fear into the mass population.
There, in my opinion, appears to be deliberate manipulation of human consciousness when it comes to various religions. Based on my understanding, most of the wisdom we did have was burned, hidden, taken and done away with.
This narrative has been emphasized by multiple people from within the field. Jon Shelby Spong, a retired American Bishop, for example, told the world that “religion is always in the control business, and that’s something people don’t really understand. It’s in the guilt producing control business.”
Perhaps this is why so many aspects of religion resonate with people, yet so many others, like the fear of harsh punishment, doesn’t.
If we examine the cultures that pre-dated modern day religion, most had a ‘spiritual’ understanding which connected them all, and, there are more examples of commonalities, and hardly any examples of conflicting information when it comes to guidelines for ones life and the description of what we call reality.
There are also multiple stories of Jesus travelling to the far east to obtain knowledge and wisdom from these spiritual teachers. This is also elaborated on by Hall, among many other scholars like him.
The information given to us by modern day religion might be a complete mix of truth, manipulation and lies all wrapped into one story.
Theodor Roosevelt once said of politics that, instead of instruments to promote the general welfare of all people, political parties have become “tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes.” Modern day mass religion has become the same thing.
When man started to conquer the world, and events like the burning of the Library of Alexandria took place, the world lost a wealth of information and knowledge, and the conquerers seemed to be on a mission of indoctrination. Perhaps the best example would be the stripping of indigenous wisdom from Native North Americans, and the process of indoctrination into a completely new belief system, one that denounced many teachings of their elders prior.
Today, even questioning the beliefs that are given to one via their religion can be met with a harsh response. If we as a collective are so ingrained in our beliefs, how can we ever be open to new ideas pertaining to the nature of reality?
Religions and people’s interpretations of them have been adjusted for years, spiritual teachings and concepts that pre-date religion have not, which is why we at Collective Evolution resonate deeply with what many call “Spirituality.” That being said, even spirituality has transformed into something completely different today, with multiple ‘new age’ type dogmas emerging, modern day spirituality seems, in some sense, to be its own religion.
We are also very interested in the science of spirituality, because they tend to merge a lot. We now know that matter is not the only reality. There is a reason that most of our founding fathers of science were spiritual mystics.
The Vatican, One of The Best Examples
(Painting on the left done by Michael Pacher) The Vatican might be one of the best examples of potential manipulation. In the view of the public, the Vatican and its many representatives from all over the world represent a force of love and peace, at least that’s how they portray themselves. Despite this fact, and especially over the past few years, representatives of the Vatican have been accused and caught molesting children, and ties to large pedophilia rings have been discovered. The Vatican has had to spend billions of dollars settling and dealing with pedophilia cases, this is no secret.
Unfortunately, many of these children are, it seems, used in various ‘Satanic type rituals.’ The Vatican claims to be following the word of ‘God,’ but multiple insiders have come forth speaking about the predominant practice of Satanism within the Vatican.
In Hall’s book, he provides many examples of how ceremonial magic, sorcery, and more were all practiced, and are a driving force among some very powerful people. He goes into the hows, whats and why, but that which used to be pure, according to Hall, was taken and perverted by the world’s elite, who, according to him and many others, still practice “black magic” till this day.
I go into more detail into this article:
For example, according to Malachi Martin, an Irish Catholic priest and writer on the Catholic Church. Originally ordained as a Jesuit priest, he became Professor of Palaeography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute.
“Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI’s reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to ‘the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary’. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia – rites and practices – was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.”
(Written in Hall’s book about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, page 632)
On multiple occasions he spoke about Satanism being the predominant practice within the vatican.
The list of figures like Martin speaking of such things is a long one. The Reverend Gabriele Amorth is another example, he was an Italian Roman Catholic Priest, and an exorcist of the Diocese of Rome, which is an administrative branch of the Catholic Church of Rome.
He claimed to have performed tens of thousands of exorcisms over his half a dozen plus decades as a Catholic Priest, and has mentioned a number of times how Satanism is practiced within the Vatican. He has also claimed that girls are commonly kidnapped by a gang of Vatican police and foreign diplomats. He claimed that these girls are recruited for Vatican parties, and crimes with a sexual motive.
Perversion and sexual rituals go hand and hand with Satanism. According to the Telegraph, and various other sources, Amorth was Holy See’s chief exorcist for 25 years.
“The Devil resides in the Vatican and you can see the consequences… The evil influence of Satan was evident in the highest ranks of the Catholic hierarchy, with “cardinals who do not believe in Jesus and bishops who are linked to the demon.”
Alfred Kunz, a Catholic priest found murdered in a Church in ritualistic fashion after investigating reports of ritualistic child abuse by priests.
Again, the list goes on and it’s a long one.

Sexual abuse scandals within the Vatican have been made public, and the Pope has been forced to comment on it many times. Whether he is involved or not is unknown, there may very well be good forces within the Vatican as well, and perhaps conflicts among those who are parts of the various orders.
Francis recently compared sexual child abuse to a “satanic mass,” which was interesting.
The Take-Away Message
The past five to six years have been quite the rollercoaster. The birth of multiple independent media outlets have shown the world that a lot more is going on behind the scenes than what we are presented with, or what the mainstream media chooses to present us with. Secrets have a way of emerging, they get so big that, eventually, mainstream media outlets have no choice but to pick up the story and, usually try to debunk. This is, in my opinion, a result of their relationship with powerful entities in several different ways. The relationship between government and mainstream media is one of many examples.
The point is, a lot of information is emerging that’s hard to believe, to the point where most people don’t want to believe it, or pay any attention to it. If we don’t pay attention to it, and bring the darkness to light, that means we can’t identify it and thus, efforts to stop it can’t even begin. Awareness is key.
That being said, it’s clear that the majority of the people resonate with love, caring, kindess, the Golden Rule and a better human experience for everybody. If those whom we deem our leaders, and those who have amassed tremendous amounts of power and influence are engaging in such activities, what does that tell you?
Can we continue to give those who have influence over the direction the human experience takes unlimited amounts of power? Are these really leaders? Or are they simply tools, puppets and people used to push an agenda of a small group of people who, above all, desire power more than anything else?
Our world has and is encountering so many problems, and for decades, our current system and forms of leadership have failed to act. There are so many instances where one is able to see that these people are really not concerned with making the world a better place.
It seems many are disguising themselves as bringers of good-will, doing “good” in the public eye, only to be engaging in “evil” behind closed doors.
Have we been fooled?
The ability for the human race to make this world a better place is quite grand, and we’re living in a time where we no longer look towards the Barack Obamas, the Pope’s, the Clintons or the Trumps, but instead, we’re looking to ourselves. We are the change we want to see, and we can shift this human experience at any time. Once we begin to see and awaken to what’s really been taking place on our planet, our ability change the world increases tremendously.
If mass human attention was taken away from consumerism, for example, and the intent in everybody’s heart was a desire for a better world, the action steps would manifest, and they are manifesting.
It’s easy for us to label this as “good” or “bad,” “dark” and “light.” There is still a lot we don’t know, but at the end of the day these are just experiences that are happening on our planet, and if they don’t resonate with us, that’s a good indication that it’s a time for change.
Exposing this type of activity within powerful organizations that have tremendous ability to influence our world, be it the vatican, global politics, Hollywood, medicine, or finance, is all part of one big revelation and a process of transparency our world is currently going through.
The last thing I’d like to say is, judgement is not the answer. By that I mean, too often we judge the victimizer, and console the victim, when both parties need consolidation and love. Hurt people hurt people, and perhaps the “evil” in this world has its roots in a tremendous amount of fear and pain, and feel they can never really face the masses with truth and transparency and come clean, that is if they want to do that…
FBI Confirms Report of “Cylindrical” UFO “Moving Really Fast” Over New Mexico
- The Facts:
The FBI has now confirmed that they are aware of the American Airlines pilot's UFO report. They did not say they are officially investigating the incident any further. The incident remains a mystery.
- Reflect On:
The increase in UFO coverage and reporting in mainstream media is raising public awareness about how prominent and well documented the subject is. What does the reality of the UFO phenomenon mean to you? Does it change your worldview?
Before you begin...
On Sunday Feb. 21, 2021 a pilot on American Airlines flight 2292 from Cincinnati to Phoenix reported seeing a long cylindrical object fly very fast over New Mexico, reporting that it looked a lot like a cruise missile. Now, the FBI has confirmed that they are aware of the mysterious report but did not say whether they are investigating any further.
The pilots report, which can be heard here, went like this:
“Do you have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us – I hate to say this but it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing – moving really fast right over the top of us.”
Steve Douglass, an experienced radio interceptor, was the first to report on the incident and claimed he heard the pilot’s transmission while recording from his multiple scanners.
Initially, American Airlines did not confirm that they had information the incident had happened, but later on, they provided a different story to journalists at The Drive who pressed for more info.
American Airlines initial response:
“At this time, we do not have any indication the radio transmission was from the flight crew on board American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21,” an airline rep told the outlet initially.
American Airlines updated response:
“Following a debrief with our Flight Crew and additional information received, we can confirm this radio transmission was from American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21,”
On Feb. 25th, a FBI spokesperson Frank Connor told Fox News in an email that:
“The FBI is aware of the reported incident, […] While our policy is to neither confirm nor deny investigations, the FBI works continuously with our federal, state, local, and tribal partners to share intelligence and protect the public. Anyone who is aware of suspicious or criminal activity should contact their local law enforcement agency or the FBI,”
The Federal Aviation Administration did release a short statement regarding the incident as well:
A pilot reported seeing an object over New Mexico shortly after noon local time on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021. FAA air traffic controllers did not see any object in the area on their radarscopes.
Up to this point this incident remains a mystery. It is unclear if further formal investigation is happening behind the scenes, but given what we’ve learned over our years of researching this subject, intelligence agencies tend to take these incidents significantly more seriously than they make the public aware of.
There has been a long term veil of secrecy surrounding the UFO phenomenon and only in recent years has the discussion turned more mainstream. It has been interesting to see further media publications pop up who are now taking this phenomenon a lot more seriously as well. This will continue to push this conversation into the mainstream over the course of time.
While it’s always intriguing to explore these new reports, there is decades of research and credible whistleblower testimony that fill in a great deal of ‘blanks’ when it comes to questions regarding the UFO and ET phenomenon. Indeed we know a lot more than what is being circulated in mainstream media at this time, and the phenomenon delves deeply into the field of consciousness research.
I recently received permission to release my full, raw, interview for the Dr. Steven Greer’s latest film ‘Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind.’ In it I cover my perspectives on discerning mainstream coverage of the UFO subject, the societal and cultural implications of the phenomenon, and what it means for humanity as a whole. You can watch the full interview exclusively on CETV.
Global Food & Farming Issues: Dr. Vandana Shiva Slams Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg & Monsanto
- The Facts:
Physicist, environmental activist and renowned author Dr. Vandana Shiva explains modern day global food and farming issues. There are links within the article to her very informative work.
- Reflect On:
When organic agriculture has shown to be the best way to feed the world, why do giant corporations insist on taking over and doing things their way? Why do they have so much sway over government policy?
Before you begin...
Dr. Vandana Shiva is a renowned author, environmental activist, and physicist. Shiva founded Navdanya, an international movement started 30 years ago in India to defend seed and food sovereignty and small farmers around the world. Navdanya pioneered the movement of seed saving and seed freedom, which began in response to the crisis of erosion of agricultural biodiversity and introduction of GMOs and patents on seeds through intellectual property rights (IPRs) and so-called ‘free trade’ agreements. It has long fought against biopiracy, the patenting of indigenous knowledge by self-interested multinational corporations and won cases related to Neem, basmati rice and wheat in India. Navdanya promotes a new agricultural and economic paradigm, a culture of food for health, where ecological responsibility and economic justice replace the present greed, consumerism and competition which have become dominant in society. It aims at regaining the common good as a foundation for a renewed sense of community, solidarity and culture of peace.
In the last 30 years, Navdanya’s research on Biodiversity based Agro-ecological farming has shown how Agroecology can increase nutrition and health, as well as farmers incomes while rejuvenating soil, water and biodiversity and enhancing climate resilience. They have a membership of more than 650,000 farmer families in 22 states of India. According to Navdanya:
The COVID public health crisis and its resulting economic devastation have accelerated calls to respond through the ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism through embracing the fourth industrial revolution. For food systems, this would mean a ‘food systems transformation’ where all areas of the food supply chain are further centralized, digitized, and mined for data in the false names of ‘public health’ and ‘economic recovery’. This push is now being supported by international organizations and world leaders who stand hand-in-hand with big corporations’ desires for further agrifood system concentration. This translated to a more aggressive push toward false solutions of farms managed through artificial intelligence and predictive algorithms, precision farming, fake foods- such as lab-grown meat, synthetically produced oils, and breastmilk- robot pollinators, biofortification, gene drives for more advanced forms of GMOs, and digital sequencing genetic information (DSI) of agro-diversity.
They recently put out a very informative report titled “Gates to A Global Empire.” Be sure to check it out. I suggest you read a recent article written by Dr. Shiva (her twitter account) titled, “Indian farmers’ 30 year struggle against corporate globalisation and 40 year struggle against the green revolution.” Her books are also a great resource documenting the takeover of seed and the immoral and unethical actions of big corporations, like Monsanto, in India and all over the world.
The clip below is from 2019 but it’s still very informative.
‘Big Short’ Investor Michael Burry Warns Central Governments Could Squash Bitcoin
- The Facts:
Well known hedge fund Michael Burry feels that Bitcoin could be squashed by the "legally violent, heartless central governments" who won't allow Bitcoin to stay decentralized.
- Reflect On:
Our societal structures, like the economy, are certainly in question as many continue to lose faith in them. Is the path towards a better future through cryptocurrency? Could humanity dream up a world without money?
Before you begin...
You might remember the famed hedge fund manager Michael Burry from the film ‘Big Short,’ his character was played by Christian Bale. He is best known for forecasting the 2008 financial crisis, and he made billions from that bet. In a recent tweet, Burry has suggested that governments could “squash” Bitcoin (BTC) in a coming inflationary crisis due to further pandemic stimulus.
Burry also feels that further regulation of the decentralized currency could hamper BTC’s performance in the long term. With one of the main motivations behind cryptocurrency’s like BTC being that they are intended to operate outside of government control and regulation, you can bet that the millions who invest in crypto intend that it stays that way – out of the governments reach.
In a now deleted series of Tweets, Michael Burry stated some intriguing opinions about Bitcoin and potential government interventions:
I don’t hate BTC. However, in my view, the long term future is tenuous for decentralized crypto in a world of legally violent, heartless centralized governments with lifeblood interests in monopolies on currencies. In the short run anything is possible – why I am not short BTC.
Burry claiming he is not ‘short’ on BTC means he is not betting that its price will fall significantly anytime soon.
One of the major reasons Burry feels governments could squash BTC is due to coming inflation as a result of more pandemic stimulus. “In an inflationary crisis, governments will move to squash competitors in the currency arena. $BTC #gold,” he said. As you can sense by Burry’s words, he feels governments will do anything in their power to maintain control over their own currencies, and protect them at all costs, regardless whether it’s what benefits people most or not.
In his recent string of tweets he discussed Germany’s path to hyperinflation in the 1920s. He currently sees America’s economic trajectory to be similar to the post-World War I climate that eventually led to a 320% monthly inflation rate in the country.
If Burry is right about the upcoming inflation and the governments potential regulatory actions on BTC, this will be the 2nd time in recent years that he predicted a seismic shift in the US economy.
“People say I didn’t warn last time, I did, but no one listened. So I warn this time. And still, no one listens. But I will have proof I warned.” – Burry said in a tweet.
Modern Structures Are Failing
This inevitably brings up the discussion of our current way of life when thinking about our societal design. Does a capitalistic economy really create a world where people can thrive? Does it inspire big business and governments to think about people’s well being first? Or does it motivate them to think of profits first? Perhaps it’s our underlying worldview of competition and separation that causes us to create society in this manner? Either way, history over the last 30 years has shown us that financial crisis’ are happening at a faster rate, each time pushing more and more people into a lower socio-economic class while the few become richer. Aside from available spending money, think of how this affects people’s basic ability to survive and enjoy life.
COVID-19 served to make billionaires even bigger billionaires, while the average person struggles to get a job, feed their family and make basic payments. Is this a world we want to live in? Does this truly feel like what we’re capable of or are we being convinced to accept something because someone said so?
Are we really to support the idea that governments should regulate cryptocurrency, a means of exchange that is outside their control? What’s the motivation behind their regulation? As faith in our institutions crumbles year after year, is the culture within governance feeling their increasing loss of power over the people?
I don’t intend to write a lengthy piece deeply exploring the ins and outs of our economic model and why it’s not serving the people, I’ll save that for another time. I sense that the questions I’ve posed will already bring up thoughts and feelings within you that tend to ‘know’ our current ways aren’t working to help people thrive, perhaps that’s enough.
Where I’m curious to push the envelope a little further is in the question of why do we believe that we need currency and exchange to begin with? Why must our economies work the way we do? Have we really chosen to ask this question? Or have we accepted the limited and dishonest historical belief that “we tried everything else and this is best?”
A radical idea to consider I know, but one I invite you to imagine for just a moment. Given all the the incredible technology we have available to us today, can we really not imagine a society where money is not required? Given the emerging information in post material science that is telling us a different story about the nature of humans, can we honestly say we are simply competitive and warring animals still?
For just a moment, set aside the judgements someone might cast upon you for considering that we could live in a world without money, things like “that’s socialism!” or “That’s communism!” If you were tasked with the project of coming up with a way to live in our world without money, how might it look? How would we go about creating that type of community?
Aside from what we’re commonly told, human beings are incredible, with extraordinary abilities to connect, build community and solve problems. If we changed the conversation from “that’s never going to be possible” to “how might we actually go about doing this?” that innocent little shift allows us to be open, sense possibility and activate our creativity, even if it means we aren’t going to take action right away.
I’ve been doing this sort of work and asking these questions my whole life – professionally for 13 years – I don’t hold the naive position that all of this can just happen on its own or that we don’t require deep questioning of our current worldview, I recognize all of this is necessary. What I am saying though is, if we don’t begin to think and explore down this path, we can’t ever make things ‘better.’
So what are you choosing to do? Accept the world as it is today? Or are you open to imagining a world where people can truly thrive?
