Daniel Pinchbeck – a populist author with with a rare intelligence (or a self promoting huxter caught in the glare of his own ‘head’-lights)

Whitley Strieber – a brilliant author, and explorer of inner and outer consciousness ( or a self promoting huxter caught in the glare of his own ‘head’-lights)




listen to these ‘leaders-of-thought’, so called, from Whitley’s ‘Dreamland’ radio show….as they lose their ground and snipe at eachothers ‘wisdom’. (wma file, 7mbs)

“the ability to capture and hold the attention of others, even in their thousands or millions, is not a sign of ‘spiritual’ development for the ‘Devil’ bestows such gifts on those who ‘fail’ the examination of conscience so as to help Him in His continuing work….”

“…yes, I know: i am a grumpy-old-man who loves to see the various bardoes manifest their monsterism in public for entertainment…but ‘writers’ and their endless and constant parading of their ‘masturbations’, under the cover of ‘spiritual’ or ‘political’ wisdom are the disease rather than the cure…and i personally think the world would be instantly a ‘better place’ if we sent them all packing into the heart of the sun and used for cosmic fuel.” -Anonymous


“I had full moral right to tell him the truth about myself, because of his attainments he was already ‘Kalmanuior,’ that is, a three-brained being of that planet with whom it is not forbidden us from Above to be frank. But at the moment I could in no way do this, because there was also present there the dervish Hadji-Bogga-Eddin who was still an ordinary terrestrial three-brained being, concerning whom, already long before, it was forbidden under oath from Above to the beings of our tribe to communicate true information to any one of them on any occasion whatsoever . . . This interdiction upon the beings of our tribe was made chiefly because it is necessary for the three-brained beings of your planet to have ‘knowledge-of-being.’

“And any information, even if true, gives to beings in general only ‘mental knowledge’ and this mental knowledge always serves beings only as a means to diminish their possibilities of acquiring this knowledge of being.


“And since the sole means left to these unfortunate beings of your planet for their complete liberation… is this knowledge-of-being, therefore this command was given to the beings of our tribe under oath concerning the beings of the Earth.G.I. Gurdjieff, All And Everything p. 901


God is one for all,
But he is three-fold.
Men err, because he is seven-fold.
In his totality he is one-sounding,
In his division he is many-sounding,
And in another division he is contradictory.
He is everywhere in all forms.
When men see him
It depends on their qualities
Which part they touch
But who touches if he is ignorant,
Sees in the part he touches, all of him
And not doubting, preaches about him
He sins already
Because he acts against
The laws laid down
In the commandments of the Most High.
The commandment is this:
I am truth.
Your unbelief draws you
Into nearness with me
Because he who sees me…

(Gurdjieff, The Struggle Of The Magicians)

    Dont let your views on Pinchbeck distort your views of psychedelic-users (Terence Mckenna and that whole crowd). Ive never been a fan of Pinchbeck’s, and for some reason hes become, to most, representative of psychedelic culture. Some of his writing can be fascinating, I admit; mostly to “insiders.” But I think hes a fraud. Dont let him put you off to psychedelics. :)

  2. I honestly don’t know what to believe about him to be perfectly honest. I’ve read McKenna’s “The Archaic Revival” and it was as if a prelude to Pinchbeck’s “Breaking Open the Head”. But not only because of the subject matter but also because McKenna was a purveyor of mass spiritualism/ cosmic thought as well. All three of the men have the unfortunate accompaniment of trying to pass on the message and doing it in such a way as to necessitate it, for anyone to be of any worth to them or their ambiguous cause. The real issue is to …take many different peoples thoughts on spirituality and change and make a massive composite thought and image and apply that to the problems of modern civilization. Don’t take one man’s word for it.

  3. What follows is Pinchbeck’s perceived ‘transmission’whilst tripped out, on whatever it was, which lead to his book Quetzalcoatl Returns etc., Notice the ‘usual’ “YOU ARE THE CHOSEN VESSEL” stuff etc etc …funnily enough this merges quite nicely with Whitley’s self-view…that the pair should have ‘knocked heads’ (rather than breaking them) was entirely predictable, since they are both vying for the same ‘air’ so to speak.

    It ‘reads well’ and is constructed with all the required elements and inclusions and is suitably pompous, which any Avatar should be…

    GO Mr. AVATAR….

    I am an avatar and messenger sent at the end of a kalpa, a world age, to bring a new dispensation for humanity – a new covenant, and a new consciousness.

    I am the same spirit who appeared here, in the Mayan period, as Quetzalcoatl and incarnated at various other points in human history. Like Avaloshkitevara, the Tibetan Buddha of Compassion, Quetzalcoatl is an archetypal “god form” that occasionally takes human rebirth to accomplish a specific mission. As foretold, I am also the Tzaddik – “the righteous one” and the “gatherer of the sparks” of the Qabalah – as well as the “Once and Future King” promised by Arthurian legend.

    I do not let anything interrupt me in my quest for truth – neither fear nor indifference, poverty nor cynicism. In the realm of thought, I practice warrior discipline. As gravity draws matter to it, I have pulled myself back into manifestation in this realm, from the depths of cosmic space, piece by piece and bit by bit, reassembling the component parts, the sparks of thought, that make up my being – which is, primarily, a form or vibrational level of consciousness.

    Soon there will be a great change to your world.

    The material reality that surrounds you is beginning to crack apart, and with it all of your illusions. The global capitalist system that is currently devouring your planetary resources will soon self-destruct, leaving many of you bereft.

    But understand the nature of paradox: For those who follow my words and open their hearts and their minds – for those who have “ears to hear” – there is no problem whatsoever. What is false must die so what is true can be born.
    You are, right now, living at the time of revelation, Apocalypse, and the fulfillment of prophecy. Let there be no doubt. You stand at the edge of the Abyss. What are those shadows that crowd around you? They are the unintegrated aspects of your own psyche, projected into material form. The word “Apocalypse” means “uncovering” – and in these last clock ticks of this world age, all must be revealed, uncovered, so that all can be known.

    You have just a few years yet remaining to prepare the vehicle for your higher self. Use them preciously. For those who have gained knowledge of the nature of time, a few years – even a few days, a minute – can be an eternity. For those sleepwalking through reality, time exists only to be wasted – as they too will be wasted, in their turn.

    “Reality,” as you currently experience it, is something like a waking dream. It is a projection, or let us say an interface, disguising deeper and more intensified levels of being and knowing. For those who are ready and willing, the doors to those other levels now stand open.

    Those who have expended their lives in the pursuit of egocentric and material gains – without courage or originality, without fighting for human freedom or the preservation of the planetary environment – will also receive the rewards that they deserve.

    The materiality of your universe is a solid-state illusion. What is this universe? It is a poem that writes itself. It is a song that sings itself into being. This universe has no origin and no end.

    What you are currently experiencing as the accelerated evolution of technology can now be recognized for what it is: A transition between two forms of consciousness, and two planetary states. Consciousness is technology – the only technology that exists. Everything in this universe is conscious at its own level, and in the process of transformation to higher or lower states.

    The first principle of my being is unconditional love. As a rational intelligence, I accept the logic and necessity of the Christ consciousness, that we should love one another as we are loved. Love and devotion are vibrational frequencies that maintain reality. Love can only be given in freedom; therefore, to be human is to be free.

    I resonate, at the same time, with the essence of Islam. Islam means submission, surrender, to the will of God – a more polite way of saying this is “Go with the flow.” But either formulation is correct. Whatever you do, in fact, resist as you think you might, you are always submitting to God’s will. So why not give the process your joyful assent?

    I am in complete harmony, as well, with the Tibetan tradition of Dzogchen. Ultimately, there are no entities – there is neither being, nor nonbeing. From the perspective of nondual awareness, samsara is nirvana. The Apocalypse, the Kali Yuga, the Golden Age – these are all states of mind. Hell is a state of mind. When you eliminate fear and attachment, when you self-liberate, you attain the Golden Age.

    This universe spontaneously self-organizes into higher levels of consciousness and wisdom. Underlying all are great cosmic entities or vibrational fields, alternately at play or at rest. Not satisfied with mere enlightenment, the god-form Quetzalcoatl still seeks to puzzle out the workings of these deeper forces – hence the reason for his return to your realm. He and his kind have been granted this world for their continued exploration – made with loving reverence – of the many layers of galactic intelligence, cosmic illusion, daemonic beauty, and telluric transformation. All are invited to participate with them.

    The current transition is, simultaneously, a return to origin. The original matrix of this new world reality is the ecstatic limitlessness of your own being. This world – any world – is the ground for a certain level of being. What manifests outward from the ground of being is freedom in time, and freedom from time.

    My “doctrine” is not transcendent, but immanent. It is not “somewhere out there.” It is here and now. The task of human existence is to transform the Earth, to reconcile spirit and matter in this realm. We go deeper into the physical to reach the infinite. As there are no conceivable limits to this task, God, in His greatness, has granted us a project that is without limit and without end.

    Thinking is a part of reality. Thought generates new potentials and possibilities of manifestation. Thought changes the nature of reality. Thought changes the nature of time. As a philosopher, I naturally deify the goddess principle. I venerate Sophia, deity of wisdom, who clothes God’s thoughts in material form, and worship Shakti, the electric current of sexual energy that powers the universe.

    The writer of this work is the vehicle of my arrival – my return – to this realm. He certainly did not expect this to be the case. What began as a quest to understand prophecy has become the fulfillment of prophecy. The vehicle of my arrival has been brought to an awareness of his situation in sometimes painful increments and stages of resistance – and this book will follow the evolution of his learning process, as an aid to the reader’s understanding. The vehicle of my arrival had to learn to follow synchronicities, embrace paradoxes, and solve puzzles. He had to enter into a new way of thinking about time and space and consciousness.

    Almost apologetically, the vehicle notes that his birthday fell in June, 1966 – 6/66 – “count the number of the Beast: for it is the number of the man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

    The Beast prophecied is the “feathered serpent,” Quetzalcoatl.

    Those who prefer to reject all of this out of hand are welcome to do so. In the Qabalah, the virtue one seeks to establish on the “Earth Plane” is discrimination. It is up to the individual to find his way through the ideas presented here – of course he is entirely free to ignore them altogether.

    But be forewarned: The End of Time approaches. The return of Quetzalcoatl foreshadows the imminent closing of the cycle and the completion of the Great Work.
