There is a common thread in the symbolism of the lifting of the veil ritual in Freemasonry, to the illusion of shadows on the wall of Plato's Cave, to the Sanskrit word Maya, meaning illusion and to the word Apocalypse, meaning to reveal or unveil hidden knowledge to an elect few. The words esoteric and occult both imply there exist a hidden knowledge. Esoteric from the Greek literally means "pertaining to the more inward". The term is mentioned by Plato in reference to Pythagoras having an inner group of initiates or the esoteric and and outer group of the uninitiated or the exoteric. The knowledge that is hidden and only gained by the initiated is Gnosis. What does this all mean?
Particle Physicists might give us some insight into what this Gnosis is.
"Reality is an illusion, albeit a very persistent one" Albert Einstein
"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real." — Niels Bohr
"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force... We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter."- Max Planck
“The quantum theory of parallel universes is not the problem, it is the solution." David Deutsch quote
So it seems that on a quantum level reality is not fixed or solid, which means that it is a hologram or projection of sorts. Coming to this realization is not easy. The distractions of our perceived reality convince us of their realness. To counteract these distractions we can make affirmations like this one;
"If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things." Rene Descartes
Ask yourself the question, What is real. This world is packed full of delusions. There are Religions, Political Parties, TV, Advertising, manipulated histories, that all espouse contradictory truths. Most people live in these delusions. Do you believe we went to the Moon? Why are we told that the Pyramids form across the globe are not connected??? Building 7??? There is a Caduceus in the dollar sign. Why? Who cares, it is a delusion. So, you might ask, are depleted uranium munitions a delusion? I do have a hard time with that one. It is just part of the Hologram? Go back into your lotus position, and it will go away.
So who is controlling this freak show. Is is a collective delusion? Is it and individual delusion? I think it is a bit of both mixed with the conscious mind of the Universe. We are actors in a great dream. The dream is a program. The program can be navigated into alternate time lines, based on collective and individual intent. There are many yous and many mes in many different realities. So, how the fuck did we get here, on the cusp of environmental, economic meltdown(pun intended). How can we navigate into a more peaceful, just reality? Or is this just part of the script. I sure wish those Gods/ET's would come back and make things right. My intention is focused on a serpent rope worm hole opening in the sky.
What is the Gnosis?
