Human Origins 13 Paradigms Part Two

In our previous installment we heard Jordan Peterson describe the process of how a monotheistic God is built from the consciousness of human beings.

We also heard from Mark Stavish describing what an egregore is.

The parallel is immediately obvious.

What Jordan Peterson was describing in detail was the construction of the ultimate egregore.  What Mark Stavish refers to as a collective consciousness.  That is the modern terminology.

Now, before anyone recoils in shock with that statement, let us stop.

Consider where we have been and where we have progressed in this discussion so far.

We have seen the truth that humanity has been on planet earth, as specifically human with the human genome, some 200-250,000 years.  We know this by looking at mitochondrial DNA.

We have discovered along the way that there is an ancient record that describes how our genome came to be on this planet.  An alien race known as the Annunaki, actually created our genome using hominoids that existed on this planet at the time, and infusing some of their own Annunaki DNA to create modern man.

There are a couple of iterations until the race we now are, the homo sapien sapien, actually came to be.  But essentially, as we have said previously, we are the first GMO on this planet.

All that we knew of gods was what we observed of the Annunaki.  As we have noted earlier as well, those observations may have been quite limited simply because of the life cycles of the Annunaki, who tended to live hundreds of thousands of years.

We, on the other hand, if you believe the early accounts in Genesis in the Scripture, lived at the outside, 900 to 1000 years, and on average today 80-90 years.  So, as we pointed out, it is quite possible, if the Annunaki chose to live reclusively or keep to a natural sleep cycle, there might be whole generations of mankind that lived and died without ever seeing one of the gods.

And we do know that the Annunaki chose as well to administer the world of men they had created by means of kings and kingdoms, thereby keeping a distance from humanity.

Is it any wonder that mythologies arose about the gods themselves.  Is it any wonder that mythologies arose about whose god was the strongest and whose god was the greatest.  But one thing was clear, everyone feared the gods.

If we move ahead to just after the great cataclysm that almost wiped us out, we see the re-instatement of kings and kingdoms on earth as the world of men was rebuilt. 

Relatively speaking, it was not long after that before the Annunaki had all the gold they had come for and were leaving.  We have evidence that there were those among them that were quite concerned for our future.

I believe that one such was Nin-gish-zeeda, son of Enki, otherwise known in history as Hermes, who actively worked to create some sort of replacement theology, knowing that the world would change but our nature required some sort of God.

Jordan Peterson’s description is of an organic sort of process over a very long period of time.  While the seeds of it may have been germinating for some time, I believe that like many other aspects of our history, there was a deliberate push in that direction, toward monotheism.

What better god to focus around than the head of the earth mission itself, the god Enlil.  He was all that the Old Testament said he was, and yet to some extent that got mythologized as well. 

By the time Christ was born, and I think Hermes himself had something to do with that, the description being clear in New Testament scripture that there was supernatural involvement; by the time Christ was born, the Annunaki had been gone for hundreds of years.

In human time that is quite awhile, time enough for the development of a newer paradigm of the highly spiritualized one God idea.

All those ideas that Jordan Peterson speaks of had been latent, and now, with the new paradigm, they came cascading in, to be constructed specifically into the early Christian Church and refined for several hundred more years.

So while Peterson is not specifically wrong, his timeline and conception of the process is not accurate, shall we say.

Now, let us step back once again and think about this.

2000 years of Christianity and Christian theology has heavily influenced the world, most specifically the west.  That is undeniable.  We may have disputes about theology, morality and moral consistency, yet in the big picture, there is no denying the influence.

If we were to say that this was an egregore of 2 millenial duration we would hardly be wrong.

And we must recognize how deep into the culture the egregore has embedded itself.

One example of this is the tendency for self accusation and self flagellation.  I had thought in the past that this was simply a legacy of the human race having been created to be slaves.  However, it is more than that, and more specific to the west.

In the Christian tradition there is the idea of original sin and the perpetual condition of mankind as being out of sync with God and in need of salvation.

The theology varies among Christians yet the self accusatory theme remains.  This is taken to heart right to the very level of the commoner, most specifically the commoner.  It was the kind of teaching that was used to keep the commoner in check in centuries past, in fact.

Suffice to say, there is a deep reflex within us to blame ourselves, to accuse ourselves.

Most recently we have seen this played out in the great climate debate.  Whenever an answer has been pursued as to the cause of any given climate phenomenon, whether cooling, heating, more rain, less rain, whatever the case is, the reflex has been, from the very start of the investigation, to blame humanity.  That is the first go-to answer.  Self accusation. 

And like the Christian theology, there may well be a form of redemption but usually it involves elaborate repentance, and some sort of reparations, that is, transfer of money from one part of the world to another.  It has always been a grift, but it uses something that Christianity, the egregore, has deeply engrained in us as a reflex.

But there is another side to the egregore, which I think is common to some degree among all egregores, but which is prominent with the existence of Christianity.  That is to say, because it is a form of collective consciousness, it has power in and of itself.  It has power in the real world. 

Without going into the subject in depth at this point, we do know that the subconscious mind of a human being has a certain amount of power and influence around it.  There is an entire study and art devoted to the attempt to control and direct one’s own subconscious, as well as the parallel study and art of attempting to control the subconscious of others.

We will revisit this subject later but in the meantime suffice to say, there is a comparable study of the influence of the subconscious of multiple people at once, directed in a specific direction and jacked with great force.  This we would call a collective unconscious or in this case an egregore.  All this to point out that whether we think the historical statements made by Christians are true, or whether we think the theology of the Christian faith is any where near accurate to the real world; it doesn’t matter to the great power of the egregore.  Christianity is powerful independent of whether it is true.

This bears thinking about.  If we were like most of the practitioners of the occult, our idea would be to apply the power of unseen forces to effect some change in the real world.  That is why many of the chaos magicians have no qualms about using rituals and symbols borrowed from Christianity to practice their magic, because they know there is a lot of power, centuries of the power of the subconscious of millions of people, all focused through the one lens of the Christian egregore.

That is power that should not be wasted, from their point of view.

From our point of view here, the same may be said in a different context.  We have not yet delved into the thoughts of the Hermetics, their point, purpose and methods, yet it is clear that practically speaking, whatever you wish to accomplish spiritually, the martial arts principle is the most practical course of action.  Where there is a powerful force at work in the world of the mind and consciousness, it is better to flow with it and use its momentum to multiply the power of the individual, than to try to buck against it, like a large rock in a river. 

Eventually, over time, even the rock wears down.  We might gain some personal satisfaction from making a stand against something as monolithic as Christianity in the west, but in the end, the results don’t justify the effort.

And, to the extent that the egregore wanes, we adjust ourselves accordingly.  Perhaps in our lifetime the far-reaching influence of Christianity may wane sufficiently to reduce the power of the egregore, but as with the example we gave, of self accusation; that was in the secular realm primarily and yet it is clear that the Christian egregore still holds massive influence.

So where are we at this point.

Let us once more stop, reflect and perhaps summarize all of this.  Put simply, we know the truth of our origins and it’s not what we were told by this Christian egregore that most of us were raised with.

And in their effort to be the counterpoint to the Christian narrative, the scientists missed or ignored some important facts as well.

Yet in the end, from a strictly pragmatic viewpoint, unless and until the Annunaki return to earth at the next Nibiru fly-by, to attempt to force the truth on the world is pointless.  The truth has been entered into the record.  Our deepest thanks to Zacharia Sitchin for devoting much of his life to the massive body of work that gives us the history.

However, I think the conclusion we must draw is a Hermetic one.  In fact I think personally, that it was Hermes, otherwise known as Nin-gish-Zeeda who had the foresight to realize that we as human beings are unique in some ways.

We are aggressive and in a hurry, likely as a result of the shorter life span we were given.  And we have developed our own cosmology and theology in the absence of the Annunaki.  Our lifespan gives us a certain amnesia, a blessing and a curse.

But Hermes realized there would be those who would see the big picture and want to practice a life and philosophy of transcendence, knowing when to engage and when to disengage, understanding the human mind and soul, and understanding the art of life in the spaces.

All this and understanding the powers that exist and move in the world, the egregores that create momentum, and how to catch that momentum and use it to move forward in the way that we wish.

There is much more to be said but we will need another installment to chase down a couple more rabbits, before we move on.

For a quick illustration of  what we mean by life in the spaces, here’s an excerpt from First Knight.

More in the next installment.
