an I interrupt your daydreaming for a moment and throw you a quick bucket of water in the form of a brief analysis of my own personal troubled psyche? Are you ready? I asked you a question! Are you ready to take off? Oh, you better be!
This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.
I am posting this article on my blog that has been originally written and posted by Peter J. Carroll on his website http://www.specularium.org/ back in 2014, for a few reasons. The prime one is to shed some light on what Chaos Magic actually is all about (and what is not about), and to inform people who are interested concerning the fundamental concepts behind the philosophy. Given its bad press along the years by “truthers”, religious fanatics, new-age and conspiracy tin-foil hat wearing weasels, pseudo-occultists and “PC journalists”, and all sorts of uninformed meat golems, Chaos Magic still remains quite misunderstood in the fields of Western Magic and Esoterica and it needs to be slowly peeled and explained . I am quite positive, that now is the time to peel these layers and take a cab to that red-pill cafeteria in your local area and enter reality. Read and digest with caution!
WELCOME TO THE DESERT OF THE UNREAL!
Welcome to my new podcast/free-thought sort of radio show. This is the pilot episode and if it turns out that there may be life forms out there listening and enjoying my thought processes and verbal antidotes, I may actually consider keeping it going and expand my horizons. (whatever that means)
The wrath of The Gods is like great waters that is dammed for the present; they increase more and more, and rise higher and higher, ’till an outlet is given; and the longer the stream is stopped, the more rapid and mighty is its course, when once it is let loose. It is true, that scales of judgment against your degenerate deeds and ignorance has not been executed hitherto; the floods of the Gods’ vengeance have been withheld, but your corruption and degeneracy in the mean time is constantly increasing, and you are every day treasuring up more wrath. The waters are constantly rising, and waxing more and more mighty, and there is nothing, but the mere pleasure of The Gods, that holds the waters back, that are unwilling to be stopped, and press hard to go forward. If The Gods should only withdraw their hands from the flood-gate, it would immediately fly open, and the fiery floods of the fierceness and the wrath of The Gods, would rush forth with inconceivable fury, and would come upon them with omnipotent power; and if their strength were ten thousand times greater than it is, yea, ten thousand times greater than the strength of the stoutest, sturdiest and vile Demons in deepest abysses of the earth, it would be nothing to withstand or endure it.
Apart from technology, not much has changed in the last three thousand years in terms of how our minds are cultivated for social and political control purposes. Our consciousness – both collective and personal – is still being invaded via the art of extraneous “agents” and “ghosts” corralling our psyche into cultural, political and social enclosures. These methods and practices of our psychological enslavement have not changed since the time when our hysterical ancestors were spellbound by the parade of “idols” under the glow of blazing torches on their way to the Ishtar Gate in ancient Babylonia. Today, the same screams of ecstasy are delivered towards the parades of Hollywood “stars” walking along the red carpet to the Oscars – under the glow of the spotlight. Nothing has changed. Nothing at all.

arl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and founder of a neopsychoanalytic school of psychology, which he named Analytical Psychology.
Jung’s unique and broadly influential approach to psychology has emphasized understanding the psyche through exploring the worlds of dreams, art, mythology, world religion and philosophy. Although he was a theoretical psychologist and practicing clinician for most of his life, much of his life’s work was spent exploring other realms, including Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, sociology, as well as literature and the arts.
His most notable contributions include his concept of the psychological archetype, his theory of synchronicity and the collective unconscious – also known as “a reservoir of the experiences of our species.”
Jung emphasized the importance of balance and harmony. He cautioned that modern humans rely too heavily on science and logic and would benefit from integrating spirituality and appreciation of the unconscious realm. Jungian ideas are not typically included in curriculum of most major universities’ psychology departments, but are occasionally explored in humanities departments.
Regardless of whether you are aware of this fact or not, whether you care or not—it does not change the fact that the Battle of Armageddon has already begun and you as an individual, and all of us in society are caught up in the middle of the greatest and most destructive conflict the human race has ever experienced. However, this version of the Battle of Armageddon is not a tangible battle of human slaughter and carnage taking place across the landscape of some rather uninspiring real estate in the Middle East—as was predicted in the Book of Revelations. Rather, this very real and destructive Battle of Armageddon is currently taking place right now in the domain of human consciousness—it is taking place within your own mind.
