The Digital Ambler | Embrace the detours on a Hermetic path. The Most Dangerous Philosopher in the World. The revelations about Russian involvement in the hacking of the Democratic Party officials, intending to vault Trump over Clinton, have added more fuel to an already-explosive and exhausting election cycle. Why would Russia do this, especially as it's been revealed that Russian President Vladimir Putin was likely personally directing the operation?

Enter Alexander Dugin, the political scientist known as “Putin’s Rasputin” or “Putin’s Brain”, as well as an occult fascist. He is also a sociology professor at the highly prestigious Moscow State University, a prolific writer, an advisor to key political and military figures and an articulator of a Kremlin-approved nationalist philosophy. He has also been on the U.S. sanctions list following Russia's takeover of Crimea for advocating the murder of Ukrainians, among other things. It’s not that Dugin is personally responsible for the hacks that are currently being explained as Putin’s personal vendetta against Clinton. Credit: Dugin.ru. Black magic on Red Square.

Hurrying past central Moscow’s upmarket shops and restaurants, I entered one of the Russian capital’s many sprawling courtyards. Once I’d located the correct entranceway, I was buzzed in. I walked into the gloom of what appeared to be a cavernous, renovated kommunalka – a Soviet-era communal apartment. A large artificial candle supplied the only light in the lobby, while the incongruous sound of Russian pop music blasted from tinny speakers. The sorceress sat smoking and drinking tea behind a large wooden desk filled with candles and other, more arcane objects. The sorceress’s name was Valeriya Karat, and her slick, professional-looking website claimed she possessed hereditary magical powers.

Karat is far from Russia’s only internet-savvy sorceress. Ceptr | Building a Semantic, Mashable, Fully Decentralized Internet. Secret Transmissions: Confession of an Art Director: Occult Advertising Tech. The appeal of ceremonial magick and the occult works for me along two planks, or more aptly, two pillars. One the one hand it addresses my metaphysical yearnings and on the other it compliments my artistic or creative nature. As it happens, I had been practicing a form of magick long before I realized it as such. You see I work in the revered and despised business of advertising. The big brains in the field keep trying to rename the profession to recapture the mystique it once had in days gone by.

Or to avoid the increasing stink associated with the ubiquitous annoyance of "ads. " Today, they call it content. I was lured into the craft in the way that most of my colleagues were, with the promise of a steady paycheck (to pay off our massive student debts) while fooling around being “creative” all day. Being paid to exercise my creativity was all I really wanted out of life as an early 20-something. At the time I really did and still do have an affinity for the graphic designer archetype. What the hell is wrong with America’s establishment liberals? Photo illustration by Slate. Image by bmelofo/Thinkstock. You might remember a time, back before the election, when we all still lived in the real world and Donald Trump was an unhinged conspiracy theorist. Nearing rock bottom in the polls, wheeling off helplessly down the one-way chute of defeat, Trump began making a series of increasingly implausible claims: The election was a fix; shadowy foreign actors—China, Saudi Arabia—were colluding with elements within the deep state to put their puppet in the White House; media organizations were polluting the country with their lies and distortions; the whole country was about to suffer a soft coup, maybe bloodless, maybe not.

If Clinton won, he said, he might not accept the legitimacy of the result, and people were horrified by this suggestion. Every principle of representative democracy seemed under threat and all because one jumped-up narcissist and his limp, frothing coterie couldn’t deal with not getting everything they ever wanted. 21 Inspiring German Proverbs for German Learners.

THE LAST TRUMP…HERE COMES DON THE FREAKIN’ BAPTIST AND THE MESSIAH’S SPACE SHIP | William Henry. “In a flash”, said Paul to the Corinthians, “in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, the dead will rise and we will be changed…” While preparing for an interview with George Noory on “Coast to Coast am” on December 14, 2016 I heard two news stories that have blown my mind.

One story says Donald Trump is the new John the Baptist, the forerunner of the Second Coming, and the big-time developer who will, finally, rebuild Solomon’s Temple Tower in Jerusalem as a home for the Ark of the Covenant…so that we can have world peace. The other story comes from Iran where an Ayatollah says the Islamic Messiah’s space ship, or cloud ship as it is described, is on the way… and will take control of the earth at, you guessed it, Trump’s soon-to-be-developed Solomonic Tower, in Jerusalem.

Is that surreal or what? Wow! With hope on its way out the door for some with the exit of President Obama, change is clearly in the air. Who knows? That could happen, too. Then again, anything is possible these days. UPDATE (always noted in red): December 15, 2016 Evening News.

The Possible Common Origins of Star Gods. If the apparitions which are said to have been witnessed at Fatima in 1917 had taken place centuries earlier they might have been described as Fairy encounters or visions of spirits and demons.

Today, though, we might describe them as UFO events or perhaps messages from other dimensions. That is, of course, if we take these encounters as legitimate, physical experiences. The phenomenon of a cultural and religious paradigm filtering, then defining, the meaning of anomalous events is a bias that is often purposeful and deliberate for many reasons. Control and fear are just two of them. In early spring 1916 three local shepherd children, Lúcia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto reported that they were visited by an angel on several occasions.

These visits later became known as and attributed to the Roman Catholic title - Our Lady of Fatima, or the Virgin Mary. Lúcia Santos (left) with her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto, 1917 ( Public Domain ) Adventures in Office Imaging: Is Marketing, Magick? While using the Google+ Sparks function a few days ago in search of articles using the keyword “esoteric” I stumbled upon a most peculiar and enlightening blog post… “The esoteric art of non-coercive persuasion — sometimes called advertising — evolved long before there was a Manhattan avenue named after our fourth president. Even the Scriptures tell of blind and elderly Isaac being persuaded, through gentle deception, to yield his older son’s birthright.” The headline to this article written by Stanley M. Aronson, M.D. hit me like a ton of bricks in the “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” kind of way. As an open minded young man I have a deep thirst for knowledge in regards to both the exoteric and esoteric dynamics of well, pretty much everything.

As a human being who has found himself in a rather successful career as a marketing and sales professional I have often asked my self… Is Marketing, Magick? By now you are probably wondering two things. Be aware and be awake. Cognitive science backs up the ancient Indian philosophy that we’re conscious even in deep sleep — Quartz. At the clinic of a popular veterinarian in New Delhi, all eyes were on Sunny, a Siberian husky. It was a warm day, but despite his obvious discomfort, Sunny did not mind the attention, human or canine. “It is rare for a foreign dog to feel comfortable in a large, hot city like Delhi,” said Pradeep Rana, checking Sunny’s hind-quarters.

“They are not bred for this heat. But if necessary steps are taken, they can be happy here.” Once a rare sight in Delhi, Siberian Huskies now routinely show up at veterinary clinics and dog shows in the Indian capital. The new status symbol While caring for any dog is a major responsibility, caring for a foreign breed often includes running air conditioners through summer, purchasing high-quality dog food in large quantities, a constant supply of fresh water, exercise and, in later years, frequent visits to the vet.

This being human is a guest house.Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness,Some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! …The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. Rumi One of my favorite stories of the Buddha shows the power of a wakeful and friendly heart. Yet, it seems Mara was only temporarily discouraged. Instead of ignoring Mara or driving him away, the Buddha would calmly acknowledge his presence, saying, “I see you, Mara.”

He would then invite him for tea and serve him as an honored guest. When Mara visits us, in the form of troubling emotions or fearsome stories, we can say, “I see you, Mara,” and clearly recognize the reality of craving and fear that lives in each human heart.

Blasphemy, Sex, Satanism and Sadism: The diabolic erotic art of Félicien Rops (NSFW) ‘Pornokratès’ (1896). There are few nineteenth century artists as controversial or as profoundly shocking as Félicien Rops. Even more than a century after his death, his “blasphemous erotica” can still cause great offense in a world of safe spaces and trigger warnings.

Rops was born in Namur, Belgium in 1833, the son of a wealthy cotton dealer. He married, had two children (one dying in childhood), separated from his wife and moved to Paris in 1862. Another key event was his meeting with the writer Baudelaire, whose work confirmed many of Rops’ personal beliefs. The Decadent Movement was a loose collection of artists and writers who came to prominence in the last two decades—or fin de siècle—of the 1800s. The novelist Péladan said of Rops in La Plume (1896): While the author JK Huysmans described Rops as: ‘La tentation de Saint Antoine’ (‘The Temptation of Saint Anthony’) (1878). ‘Hamadryades’ (1860).

Dangerous Minds Interview: - Rushkoff. Aleister & Adolf is a new graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics, the product of the creative pairing of media theorist Douglas Rushkoff—Professor of Media Studies at Queens College in New York—and and award-winning illustrator Michael Avon Oeming. In Aleister & Adolf the reader is taken behind the scenes of the capitalist spectacle and inside the boardrooms where corporate-occult marketing departments employ fascist sigil magick developed by the Nazis during WWII in today’s advertising logos.

A place where the war for men’s minds is waged with symbols and catchy slogans. It’s a fun smart read and you’ll be much smarter after you’ve read it, trust me. And Oeming’s crisp B&W artwork is perfectly suited for getting across some often difficult and tricky philosophical concepts. He’s a unique talent indeed. Rushkoff recently told AV Club: “Swastikas and other sigil logos become the corporate logos of our world. Grant Morrison even wrote the introduction to Aleister & Adolf. The "Elite" Coup Of 2016. Chaos Matrix. Russian tradition of the Knights Hospitaller - Wikipedia. 19th-Century Commander's Badge, Russian Grand Priory Origin[edit] Blessed Gerard created the Order of St John of Jerusalem as a distinctive Order from the previous Benedictine establishment of Hospitallers (Госпитальеры).

It provided medical care and protection for pilgrims visiting Jerusalem. After the success of the First Crusade, it became an independent monastic order, and then as circumstances demanded grafted on a military identity, to become an Order of knighthood. The Grand Priory of the Order moved to Rhodes in 1312, where it ruled as a sovereign power, then to Malta in 1530 as a sovereign/vassal power. 17th century[edit] In 1698, Peter the Great sent a delegation to Malta under Field Marshal Boris Sheremetev, to observe the training and abilities of the Knights of Malta and their fleet.

Before leaving Malta, Ambassador Sheremetev, established diplomatic relations and was invested as a Knight of Devotion of the order.[2] 18th century[edit] Alzog, The Reverend Dr Johannes Baptist.
