The presentation I delivered at Prof. James H. Fetzer’s False Flags and Conspiracies Conference on Dec. 17, 2023 was actually an abbreviated version of essays whittled down multiple times to fit into a 55-minute window, resulting in too much information too tightly packed and read too quickly. What follows is the next-to-final text of the address, divided into eight chapters, published on consecutive days, Dec. 21-24, 2023 for the purpose of increasing comprehension and clarifying details.

Can modern man awaken?

Some clever attempts at common sense

By now you’re beginning to discern a pattern of how the hands of the molders of mythology have created a control mechanism of their own devious design. Rather than continuing to belabor the increasingly obsessive renditions of manipulative mind control, let us try to analyze some alternatives and see where this deceptive trend of outside control is leading us. Now, just a mention of a few scientists who offered valuable perspectives on the way we view our lives.

The vital lie

Ernest Becker said cosmic heroism is a self defeating fantasy and that people need something to believe in or else they’ll become terminally depressed.

We know how we feel when we believe, secure and well directed. If we do not believe, we are constantly uncomfortable because we are forever looking for that elusive answer to the question what happens to us when we die.

But when we think we know, and our reality is anchored in a sound belief, then we can live our lives happily secure in the knowledge of what will happen to us when we die if we simply believe. This is the ultimate mental illness, the one that causes us to kill others because they don’t believe what we do and we’re threatened by it. It is also the rationale behind governments keeping secrets which jeopardize the future of humanity,

Ernest Becker taught us that everything we do in life is selected to keep us from remembering that we are going to die.

This cultural anthropologist died at the age 50 in 1974, shortly before receiving a Pulitzer Prize for his landmark work, “The Denial of Death,” and the companion work, “Escape from Evil,” which since have spawned an industry called Terror Management Theory that can change our perspective of the way we live our lives. This is some of what Becker said . . .

Man cannot feel right unless he lives the heroic victory over evil. Evil rests on the passionate personal motive to perpetuate oneself.

Man is a frightened animal who must lie in order to live. Societies are standardized systems of death denial. They give structures to the formulas for heroic transcendence.

There is no valid difference between religion and magic. Primitive man always thought he controlled the world through his rituals. (Some people think they still do.)

The basic role of the hero in history: he is the one who gambles with his own life and successfully defies death, and men follow him and eventually worship his memory, because he embodies the triumph over what they fear most — extinction and death.

This is one of my favorite Becker lines:

In the most characteristic human activity — love — we see the most distortion of reality.

But as a forecast for the future, these are the questions we must answer:

If men kill out of heroic joy, in what direction do we program for improvements in human nature? What are we going to improve if men work evil out of the impulse to righteousness and goodness?

Once you base your whole life striving on a desperate lie and try to implement that lie, then you instrument your own undoing.

And yet, he reasons . . .

There is nothing in man or in nature which would prevent us from taking some control of our destiny and making the world a safer place for our children.

Nothing will prevent us from achieving Peace on Earth and Good Will toward Men but our unquenchable desire to live forever and ignorance of the consequences that warped goal inevitably produces.


Another brilliant but little known theoretician was meteorologist John Stevenson, who insisted that there is only OneLife and that each individual living thing — and each one of us — is a part of it. Or as we used to say back in the groovy 1960s, we are mere corpuscles in the bloodstream of Gaia and when anything dies, including ourselves, the OneLife loses only one tiny cell in an infinitely larger organism, which includes every living thing in the universe.

The way I summarize his OneLife theory is this:

We missed a turn, and the mistake we made is killing us. We need to turn around, retrace our steps a short distance, and then continue our journey in the proper direction after fully understanding the consequences of the turn we missed.

And now for the really bad news. We are all related. (That's a joke!)

But this is the way Stevenson tells it:

There is only one life and it is shared by all living things.

We are vessels that carry a small portion of that life for a short time. Death for the individual is not an end to life, since life continues to exist in all other forms of life, and will continue to do so as long as there is life.

A philosophy that satisfies the needs of the human must also include all other life.

He elaborates.

When you say all life in all living things is the same life, this violates all previous teachings about life.

One must understand that the life forms produced by life are conceptual and that it is life itself which permeates all living things, and all life is one and the same.

And his predictions about the future of humanity are down to Earth.

No evidence is found (so far) that life has been endowed by the universe with any special purpose or value. It is merely a fact, a mechanical thing that follows the same rules as the rock. Life developed as the result of ways that compounds may be constructed, and how they fit together. If life has purpose or value, it must be assigned after the fact. We are here, now what?

We can choose to be whatever we want to be.

This is a deal we should not refuse.

Stevenson said we now seek in our schools (our method of culture maintenance) to destroy those hard-earned human attributes. We no longer believe in the virtue of excellence (competition). A vigorous person is now called a workaholic. A tenacious person is stubborn and mean. Courage is considered to be a myth. A goal is a means of seeking superiority and dominance. Self-discipline is considered biblical dogma, therefore not fit for public schooling. He also said:

We now seek in our schools to educate instincts, an impossibility, while ignoring the developing human's intellectual need for real knowledge.

We deliberately teach our children baseless dogma, ideology, fantasy and fiction, while boundless real provable knowledge, which they desperately need in a world suddenly demanding of knowledge, is ignored.

The result is a destructive conflict between the human and its culture, resulting in escape (drugs, promiscuous sex, alcohol, thrill seeking), rebellion (gangs, crime, drive-by-shootings, teenage pregnancy), racial hate and a workforce that has been taught that productive work is degrading and class enslavement.

The OneLife formula is simple. It happens to be my favorite explanation of what happens to us when we die.

Inorganic beings

Lastly, the works of Carlos Castaneda about a mysterious Mexican indian shaman provide an excellent mythological framework by which to contemplate the ominous approach of the religion of the future, which is artificial intelligence.

Whether fact or fiction Don Juan Matus told the truth about our condition and our future. Castaneda’s creation said that we are victims of a disembodied alien menace described as inorganic beings who live by sucking the energy out of people by keeping them afraid.

Sorry, but this really sounds like the world today and all these deliberately created crises suck the vitality out of our souls through worry and fear. Don Juan warned us about these flyers in a dark sea of awareness, of dreamers and stalkers, beings that have awareness but no solid organic form who come from the depths of space to prey on our fears. Our fear is the fuel these parasites crave.
