Finding Your Way Into Planetary Tantra

Consistent with my wishes, as expressed from the initial moment of the Terma of Gaia Awakening, Planetary Tantra is free. I highlighted this message on the home page of where I announce the migration of all content in that site to Nemeta:

Where To Begin?

Some of the material of Nemeta has been taken from its original location on, founded in July 2002. This material is dense and extensive and its presentation may appear chaotic, random, and unstructured. Since 2002, a considerable amount of new content has been added. Additional to the material already posted, the content of the school is continually expanding. To the newcomer, what’s available here may appear overwhelming. It is normal to ask, Where do I begin?

One answer is simple: Go to that theme and topic for which you already have an interest. To do so, scan the landing pages of the 12 Courses and 3 Vocations for material that relates to an interest you already have, or addresses a question you already have. There is a primary rule in applied noetics (the name for Gnosis updated and adapted to today): What you can learn and discover depends on the questions you ask. Nemeta becomes more user-friendly the more you can define what you are asking, what you want to investigate and learn.

Additional to those simple guidelines, visitors are advised to begin with these orientation talks:

The Necessity of Self-Love


Conversing with the Divine Mother

NOTE: Due to a recording glitch I did not provide three examples of responses to the question, “What’s it to her?” There is only one example: the saltwater oceanic body of the planet is her Aeonic memory of her life in the Pleroma before she morphed into the earth. The other two examples which I did not give are: The freshwater body of rivers and lakes is the memory of what she has experienced since she turned into the earth, and iodine is the scent of her breath. These are not symbolic or metaphorical propositions. They are literal statements of facts in the paradigm of Gaian biophysics.

Regarding the enigmatic assertion that her name is silence. Consider your own name – Susan, for instance. Now consider how someone uses it to address you, “Hey, Susan, wanna go to lunch?” Then again consider how it feels and sounds when you say your own name. Different, isn’t it? Sophia is the primary-use name for the living intelligent, life-harboring superorganism of the earth. But to herself, the name we use to address her is not her name as she says it. Her name is silence. When you hear the silence proceeding from the depths of the earth and expanding into the atmosphere, you are hearing her pronounce her own name.


 Narcissism: Religious, Solipsistic, and Social (“God Loves You to No Avail”)

NOTE: I meant to use the catchy term “born-again narcissism” for the religious fixation of Christians. The assertion “God loves you” is central to their faith in God. Were I to talk to a Christian today, I would say that in my humble opinion, “God loves you to no avail.” Pretending that an invisible off-planet higher being loves you will not solve the problem of lacking self-love. That is a brutal truth. Yet it appears to work because insanity goes largely undetected in an insane world. To know what is insane requires having something sane to compare with it.



The Future of the Humanities

As explained in the first talk, everything you find in Nemeta is based on four factors, like the four cornerstones of a monument:

  1. The Primacy of Self-Love: An essential teaching that provides a new answer to the debate over human goodness. Is it innate to everyone? This topic leads into the distinction between genuine self-love and the three pernicious variants of narcissism, religious, solipsistic, and social.
  2. The Origin Myth: The Fallen Goddess scenario is the master narrative of Planetary Tantra. It supports and frames everything else in the School. You will find an introduction on This site provides a way to receive the nine episodes by email every five days. (Bear in mind that the FGS is currently in revision toward its final version. Some aspects of the story and some events in the narrative are not quite as you find them in those episodes.)
  3. Basic Practices of PT: If you register free as a guest, you can access many units and participate in the PT forum dedicated to discussing PT and related issues. There is a unique thread dedicated to newcomers on the forum.
  4. The Restoration of the Humanities: Traditionally defined in academic terms (from the Encyclopedia Brittanica), the humanities are “those branches of knowledge that concern themselves with human beings and their culture or with analytic and critical methods of inquiry derived from an appreciation of human values and of the unique ability of the human spirit to express itself. As a group of educational disciplines, the humanities are distinguished in content and method from the physical and biological sciences and, somewhat less decisively, from the social sciences. The humanities include the study of all languages and literatures, the arts, history, and philosophy.”

Here on Nemeta, the definition of the humanities is more simple and succinct: they are the studies applied to life for cultivating the moral and creative values and incentives that define and direct the human quest for excellence. They include science along with literature, the arts, history, and philosophy. Excellence is the “Aryan” ideal, from Sanskrit arya, “noble, excellent.” Cultivation of the humanities in this sense is the standard for what might be called “spiritual aristocracy” in our time. The Greek word aristos means “what is best, excellent, proven to be superior.”

Also, JLL strongly advises that newcomers listen to the talk below.

Many units on Nemeta are underpinned by the critique of belief-systems for which JLL is widely known. To know what is worth knowing requires a metacritical discipline. Not in His Image demonstrates the application of this discipline to ancient religion and the Mysteries. In the exercise of investigating “spirituality” through the ages and down to today, you will often encounter the notion of the “divine spark.” Many New Age systems embrace this idea, but it has no place in the upscaled Gnosis here on Nemeta. Due to the importance of this issue to your orientation to the living Gnosis today, it is fitting to post the talk below.

You Are Not A Divine Spark Trapped In Matter:

Here I look at the origin of the ancient Vedic proposition that the human self/identity is divine and identical with God, the Divine Self (citing Ramana Maharshi). And I go from there to an investigation of the notion of the “divine spark” in the kabbalah.

Correction: 40m. HAL, “simulation, virtual reality,” is a Coptic word, not a Sanskrit word. Curiously, there is no precise equivalent to HAL in Hindu/Vedic metaphysics. There is, rather, the term Maya which does not mean illusion, as often claimed, but apparition, or the emergent activity of multi-dimensional reality. The material world is not an illusion. It is completely real and solid, a sensorial and living apparition like a movie in which you are an actor (cinematic metaphor). Hindu Tantra describes in detail the event of Cosmic Projection, Parinama, which I compare to a movie that is being filmed and projected at the same time. The developing exposition of the Parinama can be found in Course 2 Sophianic Cosmology.

“Some days I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, so I do both.”
