Jason Reza Jorjani on Mithras and Assassin Gnosis

10/29/2019
More
Mithras is a misunderstood and overlooked god. This deity and his cult have been a leading force in the rise and fall of empires, as well as the architects of world religions that exist even today. Just as astounding, the Gnostic stream of Mithraism has been equally influential in the engineering of cultures. From original Buddhism to the Carpocratians, from the Mazdakites to the Assassins, we encounter a Gnosticism more radical and Promethean than ever imagined, fueled by a supreme God...

Raj Ayyar on Nietzsche and Gnosticism

10/16/2019
More
Friedrich Nietzsche remains today a cultural icon and enigmatic philosopher. His ideas have informed many modern art expressions and occult movements. But are the Gnostic themes in the ideas of Nietzsche? We answer that question by exploring various Nietzschean concepts like the Death of God, Eternal Reoccurrence, Apollo & Dionysus, and the Abyss. What we encounter is an ancient Gnosis few in history have heard or even experienced. Astral Guest – Raj Ayyar, visiting professor in the...

Jay Dyer and Scott Smith on Gnosticism VS Orthodoxy (Debate)

10/10/2019
More
Jay Dyer and Scott Smith joined us for a civil but passionate debate in our latest Aeon Byte Live. We discussed the Gnostic and Orthodox differences on Theodicy, Biblical Inerrancy, Free Will, Salvation, the nature of Jesus, and much more. Is the world evil or in harmony? Is the Old Testament about a good or evil god? What were the true origins of Christianity? And much more. For some reason, my vaping was as incendiary as the topics. Astral Guests: Jay Dyer, author of Esoteric Hollywood...

Our in-depth exploration takes us on a quest through the New Testament, Christian legend, and censored history to find the...

Edward Pandemonium on Left-Hand path, New Aeons & the Gospel of Pandemonium

9/30/2019
More
All movements eventually stale and must find ways to revitalize under changing times. This truism goes for any Left-Hand Path tradition. A new work details reforms to the oversights of past magicians like Aleister Crowley. This reboot of sorts results in optimized rituals and the ability to navigate magic systems in these both digital and arduous days. And an understanding of the New Aeon and what it means. Astral Guest – Edward Pandemonium, author of The Gospel of Pandemonium. This is a...

Rodney Orpheus on Group Magick Rituals

9/20/2019
More
Despite their individualistic vibe, magical movements like Thelema are primarily focused on community and group-support. We explore how to find an occult community, optimize group rituals, and whether occult organizations can thrive online. Can magic and Gnosis exist in virtual realms? This search includes understanding the history and evolution of group magick rituals, from Aleister Crowley to Lon Milo DuQuette, as well as the future of occult rites in the digital age. Astral Guest –...

Daniel Pinchbeck on The Occult Control System

9/12/2019
More
Rising accounts of extraterrestrial encounters indicate that something momentous is happening across society. Even the mainstream media have started reporting on the sightings from military pilots around the world. Are we being observed and visited by beings from another planet or a different space-time dimension? Is this just mass projection or some big reveal coming from some faction? We deal with all these questions from various angles that include scientific, spiritual and...

Robert Price on Dealing with Christian Superstition

9/3/2019
More
Superstition is more than just believing in fiction. It’s a dangerous incubator for cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias, and warped perceptual filters. Most of all, superstition cuts us off from experiencing the sublime and engaging in deep introspection. We deal with Christian superstition, from the notions of eternal damnation to the idea of a personal Jesus (and much more) — all to uncover the Christ in you, the hope of glory. Astral Guest – Robert M. Price, author of Jesus Christ...

Al Sylvester on Alchemy: The Religion of Isis & Osiris

9/1/2019
More
We take a journey back in time to the origins of Alchemy, which was an ancient and coded ritual that granted divinity to the seeker. Is it really as old as the first god kings and queens? Is this the real Philosopher's Stone or the great metaphor for inner wisdom? Let's find out. Astral Guest: Al Sylvester, author of The First Mythology. This is a partial show for nonmembers.

8/26/2019

Since ancient times, some have mapped the journey to find indwelling divinity and cosmic meaning. They are the real Illuminati. We travel across history to understand these psychonauts that include the Greek philosophers, Christian Gnostics, Hermetics, Greek Orthodox mystics, Enlightenment Secret Societies, and more. This expedition grants insights into finding your inner illumination to thrive in a time where humanity deteriorates in the darkness of mere being and collapsing...

Bernie Taylor on Myths & Repeating the Past (or TMT VS Cosmic Mountain)

8/21/2019

Ready to delve into the monomyth and other cultural dreams of ancient and prehistoric man? Get your Nous dirty with some archaeology? This leads us to understand the truth behind such primordial myths as the cosmic egg, the cosmic mountain, cyclical time, the hero’s journey, and more. In the end, what the world of archetypes delivers is an actual clash of myths and clash of civilizations in the form of the TMT controversy in Hawaii. What side will you take? Astral Guest — Bernie Taylor,...

Adrienne Mayor on Myths, Machines, and Ancient Tech Dreams

8/14/2019
More
Today’s culture obsesses over the topics of robotics, artificial intelligence, and transhumanism. These ideas are timeless, however, and were explored in ancient Greek myths and philosophy. We take a journey into humanity’s eternal impulse to create sentient tech – from the tale of Talos to the rebellion of Prometheus, from Aristotle’s speculation on slave automatons to early attempts at cyborgs. In ancient and modern times, we keep running into demiurges on Olympus and their machinations...

Peter Moon on Jack Parsons, L. Ron Hubbard & the Montauk Project

8/6/2019
More
In modern times, man has attempted both ambitious scientific and magical experiments. These experiments are sometimes connected. We explore these connections that include the Montauk Project, The Philadelphia Experiment, and several Babalon Workings. This inspection covers the lives of several occult luminaries like Jack Parson, Aleister Crowley, L. Ron Hubbard, Marjorie Cameron, and more. All this perhaps leads to the Gnosis of the ages and the conquest of time. Astral Guest – Peter Moon,...

It's a deep dive into the mystic and occult themes behind Game of Thrones, including a foundational Gnostic narrative. Is the Night King the Demiurge? Are the Children of the Forest a representation of the fallen Sophia? What do all the religions of Westeros represent, and what are the Jungian Campbellian ideas behind many of the characters? And much more, including a discussion on whether the last season was any good. Astral Guest -- Fady Riad, author of The Gospel of Lie: A Grieving...

What exactly are the Archons? Are they rebellious angels? Extraterrestrial invaders or alien mind parasites? We present a special show on the Powers and Principalities with two brilliant thinkers. Just as important as understanding the reality of the Archons, we gain the insights and tools to overthrow their tyrannical yoke on humanity and a dying planet.

Mark Stavish on Egregores

7/11/2019
More
We explore the crucial but little-known concept in occultism known as the egregore — an autonomous psychic entity created by a shared group mind. An egregore is sustained by belief, ritual, and sacrifice, relying for its existence on the devotion of an assembly of people, whether it’s a small coven to an entire country. This thought-form or collective meme can take on a life of its own, becoming an independent deity that can create despots or change history. Beyond understanding egregores,...
