“People are fascinated by ancient cultures and the shamans and magicians who practice in mysterious ways. But along with this fascination, there is a kind of aversion to The New, as if it must be irrevocably tainted, as if nothing new and as yet uncreated could possibly match what once was. This is not only false, it is a form of psychic surrender. The psyche shows no faith in itself or its inherent power. Part of my work is reversing that defeatism.” (The Magician Awakes, Jon Rappoport)
Cosmologies are a dime a dozen.
Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Spinoza, Big Bang, String Theory…
Cosmology: a picture of the universe.
For many, many people, cosmology is permission to remain passive.
Cosmology is a content provider. People want content. Cosmology is like the nightly news. “Fill up the empty spaces, please.”
So…what about the free and independent individual? And more importantly, what is freedom for?
However we might answer that last question, freedom is certainly tuned to the future. It is the basis for The New, whatever that might be.
The New. People have decidedly mixed reactions to that concept, which is uncharted.
But the mind, consciousness, the psyche are not only looking for The New, they want to imagine it, invent it, create it.
That desire is inherent in the dynamic, electric, restless, wide-ranging, agile nature of consciousness.
Creating The New is the lifeblood of the individual and individual consciousness.
This has nothing to do with cosmology.
With enough sustained creation and invention, however, the individual will come to his own cosmological ideas and answers, in a natural way.
Nikola Tesla: “Our first endeavors are purely instinctive prompting of an imagination vivid and undisciplined. As we grow older reason asserts itself and we become more and more systematic and designing. But those early [imaginative] impulses, though not immediately productive, are of the greatest moment and may shape our very destinies. Indeed, I feel now that had I understood and cultivated instead of suppressing them, I would have added substantial value to my bequest to the world. But not until I had attained manhood did I realize that I was an inventor.”
Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
The so-called “mysteries of genius” notwithstanding, every individual has something hidden away in his soul: an urge to create and project that creation out into the world.
There is no way to tell what will come of it, or what substance it contains, until imagination walks through the door, until the process begins, and gets underway…
No matter what circumstances he lives in, the individual wants to invent The New.
It is this desire, impulse, force that moves beyond any pre-set cosmology.
It is this impulse from which Tomorrow wants to be made.
It is this impulse which shuts down the Cosmological News Channel, and recognizes it for what it is: a second-hand metaphysical media outlet, owned and operated by the Reality Manufacturing Company, a subsidiary of We Create, You Absorb, Inc.
In 1961, decades before I started to work as a reporter, I was living in New York, I had just begun painting, and I was having conversations with an extraordinary healer, Richard Jenkins. (I write about Richard in my book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies.)
One day, at my studio, I was asking him about a few Hindu creation myths. He looked at me strangely, and then he said something to this effect: You’re here every day painting. What do you think that’s about? This isn’t ten thousand years ago. This is now. You’re making the future.
