SECRET SOCIETIES AND DESTRUCTION
“I’ve searched all the parks in all the cities—and no found no statues of Committees.”
JUNE 27, 2011. When I wrote THE SECRET BEHIND SECRET SOCIETIES (now available as an e-book at www.nomorefakenews.com), it occurred to me that these groups carried the seeds of their own destruction.
This was very good news.
But in order for that destruction to be realized, many people would have to understand the fact that reality was and is created.
It can be invented by committee, or it can be invented by the individual. This is a hard fact.
In the first case, you end up with a uniform sameness (which can be comforting). In the second case, you end up with a fantastically varied landscape; you don’t have one basic reality; you have millions and millions.
The mere idea and prospect of such a revolution is so unsettling to many people, they actually prefer the secret-society approach, regardless of the price they have to pay for it.
This is the fundamental trade-off that has generated much of human history.
We can even take this notion of radical decentralization into the arena of science, which is supposed to be the most uniform of all endeavors—as in, there is one science and it is based on pure discovery of the truth.
Is that so?
Imagine there are five million physicists, each of whom has no loyalty to the common consensus about underlying particles and energies. Striking out on his own, each physicist develops a unique view of how the universe operates—and each theory can be confirmed by experiments.
Each of these formulations of basic physics—though they all appear to be competing and contradictory—results in a different kind of technology that can be successfully applied to the building of machines.
And it all started with the idea that an individual can invent his own reality.
This is one of the implications of my book.
The notion that the basic human game stays the same is the very definition of psychosis. It is the first proposition of secret societies, and therefore, these groups are, in a genuine sense, the guardians of civilization.
As we have come to know and accept civilization.
Way out ahead of this blind acceptance is the blazing pulse of a different surmise and suspicion:
EACH INDIVIDUAL CAN INVENT HIS OWN REALITY, AND THAT REALITY CAN IMPACT AND REVOLUTIONIZE THE PUBLIC DOMAIN IN EVERY ASPECT.
This is exactly why secret societies have always massed their assets on the border—the border that separates uniformity from the much greater power of individual creation, aka magic.
This is where we are. On this cusp.
