Monday 4th December 2023: New thread by JLL: Your Responsibility Toward Your Divine Mother and Myself

Saturday 2nd December 2023: The final Dakini Weather Watch 18 DWW64 2nd Bhairavi Shift 2023, audio synopsis now published in the unit and Dakini Weather Watch Audio Synopses.

Tuesday 28th November 2023: Breakthrough intel on Vudasi correlated to the constellation of the Snaketamer :: the serpentine form of the double helix of DNA.

I met Jan Kerouac in January 1967, a month before she turned fifteen. We bonded instantly in a friendship (including marriage) that lasted until her death in June, 1996. We often met in my apartment at 144 Avenue B on the lower East side of NYC, as her mother’s apartment was connected to it by a door which I opened. Our conversations, which ran at great length, centered on two topics, LSD and Egyptian mythology. Jan and I never took LSD together. At the time we met, she described at length the twelve times she had taken LSD given to her by her boyfriend, Paul Ortloff, who was about ten years older. I remember vividly how she described one incident when she found herself with two young men who were university students of biology. They were discussing the discovery of DNA and details of molecular biology. They all may have been on LSD at the time. In any case, Jan told me that she had observed the molecular structure of DNA on acid. She would have been younger, perhaps only twelve or thirteen at the time.

Jan was born on February 16, 1952, exactly at the moment that Watson and Crick were formulating the double helix theory of DNA, the core structure of the human genome. From that moment it took about 40 years, until the Uranus-Neptune conjunction of 1992-3, for forensic analysis of DNA to break through into what it has become today. This documentary is a pretty good report on that development. Note that the leading figure is German molecular biologist Harald Schneider, another example of the heroic genius of the German people. The discovery of nucleic acid in 1871 was made by Friedrich Miescher, also German.

Note that at 27m the narration mentions the role that technique of PCR invented by Kerry Mullis played in advancing DNA forensics. Mullis was not reticent in disclosing his use of LSD. Rumor has it that Watson and Crick, or perhaps only Crick, were on LSD when they visualized the double helix strucuture in 1952, the year Jan was born. Crick later demanded that the evidence of this fact be suppressed until after his death.

So, I first learned about the shamanic capacity to observe the molecular structure of the human genome from a 14-year-old girl. Later, much later, I was able to confirm it by investigations in telestic trance. It is worth noting that the 1992-3 Uranus-Neptune conjunction close to Nunki in the Archer marks the key moment in both the development of DNA forensics, augmented by Mullis’s PCR technique, and the birth of the internet. The Archer aims at epsilon in the trunk of the Scorpion. This star stands in exact alignment with Sabik in the Snaketamer, on the thickest part of the body of the Serpent. Forensic criminology could never have reached the stage it holds today – originating from the momentum of the sighting gesture of the Archer in 1992-3 – without reliance on IT and computer technology. The immense range of detailed materials that have to be collected, filed, and searched is so vast that the work could never be done without using computers. I regard IT technology in criminal forensics, including the more recent science of GGI (genetic geneological investigation), as the most outstanding application of archontic/IT tools and techniques so far achieved by our species. It is by far the best use of “artificial intelligence” accomplished by human technology.

I conclude that forensic investigation and psychedelic illumination are Vudasi themes. Kerry Mullis has Mercury R (investigative mind — I also have Mercury R nearby) in 25 Sag with Mars (probity) in 23 Sag in the Snaketamer. That constellation also shows up regularly in manifolds of other pioneers in genetics and molecular biology. This documentary covers an important story for every one in PT to know by heart.

Monday 27th November 2023: New in 17 The Terma and the Terton:

17 The Bartleby Technique

It has come to our attention that the new forums NUgenics & StarBase Celestics, are not as easily accessible as the other older forums. Until we can fathom why that is so, don’t forget to check in with them and get involved.

Friday 24th November 2023: Heads up, Rhomé! Full moon @ 5 Gemini C 65 close to Aldebaran in the eye of the Bull on the 27th with Jupiter off to the right, west. The new moon of the 13th occurred in 21 Scorpio E231. Add to this 14 days/degrees and you get the approximate location of the Sun at 5 Sagittarius with the Moon opposite in 5 Gemini, approaching Aldebaran in 11 Gemini.

nother feature of observable cosmic timing particular to this month: for the full moon of a Kamala shift, located in the Bull, to follow the new moon defining the shift, located in the Scorpion, the new moon has to occur around 12 – 15 degrees ahead of 11 Sag, as it did this year. Otherwise, the full moon during a Kamala shift can occur in other regions of the Bull, such as the heart or horns. Just sayin’ for a friend.

Today I received a link to a “scientific” website reporting on galactic phenomena such as “cosmic rays.” It reminded me of my cogitations on the discovery of Big Bang “background radiation” that came to my attention while writing “The Course” in the early 1980s. As the scientific fable goes, the discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) was made in 1964 by US physicist Arno Allan Penzias and radio-astronomer Robert Woodrow Wilson. Using data from the Holmdel Horn Antenna, they estimated its temperature as 3.5 K. This measurement was enthusiastically received as evidence for a hot early Universe (big bang theory) and against the rival steady state theory, as theoretical work around 1950.

And a good time was had by all – except myself. I remember being especially irritated by this so-called discovery. My snoopy dog of common sense kicked into gear and I concluded, with a soft woof of sanity, that Penzias and Wilson were reading extraneous effects in their instrument and erroneously attributing the “data” to cosmic phenomena. In Sophianic Cosmology, we hold that view that there was no Big Bang – the Universe never began – and consequently there can be no background radiation in the form of heat and sound waves from it. The data at the basis of this discovery was gathered from the instrument used to make it. And this is the rule of a lot of scientific research, especially in the area of cosmic physics.

Imagine that you have an old-fashioned portable radio in a cheap plastic case. The case is cracked because you dropped it once, and when hear music or voice on the radio, it emits a faint mosquito-like buzz due to the resonance of the casing. This sound is an “artifact” of the technology, comparable to artifacts of manipulation in Photoshopped material. A huge amount of the “data” on cosmic activity gathered by astronomers and astrophysicists is artifactual noise that comes from the instrument and not what the instrument is believed to be detecting. And thus a great many nonsensical theories are born.

To return to the article about the astonishing impact of “gamma rays.” If, as I claim here, the data taken for evidence of such phenomena is artifactual, coming from the instruments, it begs the question: Can there be real, material activity in the cosmos to which the instruments are responding when they register the data on such rays? And if so, what is it?

I venture to say, yes, there is. In the case of gamma ray bursts, which are of high interest in astrophysics, I propose that the actual material activity in the galactic regions, both local and remote, is the seeding of new life from the Pleromas, the galactic cores. Life comes from outer space, always has, always will. At moments when Pleromic experiments get up and running, there is a massive eruption of genomic material that eventually morphs into gametes for miotic reproduction, but in a different way for mitotic reproduction. In both cases, the gamma-ray activity is evidence of gemmation – so you are really looking at a gemma-burst that impacts the tools of detection such as radio and heat-wave telescopes.

The “ultra powerful goddess particles” are propagules of gemmation released panspermically. Everything in the cosmos is alive, animated and animating. Only what lives can perceive what lives. The technical gear used to investigate the cosmos is not alive. When gemmation occurs in a particular region of the galaxy, the casing and complicated gears and lenses of the detection instruments rattle, the algorithm-driven IT monitors shudder and judder, and there is your “data.” All that gear is no better than a cheap plastic radio with a cracked casing. I rest my case.

Sun enters the sign Sagittarius. Here is the new glyph designed around 1981:

Design: “A spiral moving to expand, denoting the wide-scope vision of intention.

Outreach of adventure and discovery aiming for purpose.”

Wednesday 22nd November 2023: Another amazing vid from Praveen Mohan. I find his research more plausibly supportive of von Daniken’s ancient astronaut theme than other work that adopts that hypothesis and elaborates it with the fantastic imagination. This vid raises the question, Is there a way to explain this temple within the FGS, with the true imagination? There may be.

My main objection to ancient astronauts is of course based on the the simple argument that humanoids from a more advanced civilization did not have to intervene here on Earth because the actions attributed to them could as well have been achieved by advanced Anthropines already here. That would be the Manus, Viracochas, Apkallu, Divine Kings whom I imagine as more evolved members of humanity. Well then, fine, but that proposition goes back to the same question now phrased in a different way, Where did the Divine Kings come from? More forthcoming??!! in the unit on the Candi Sukuh Temple, in Course Six, Living Myth. This unit, if I get around to finishing it, will address two nagging questions: Where did the Manus/Divine Kings come from? and How did they perpetuate themselves so that they could survive over many generations, preserve what they knew, and educate the races they encountered?

Monday-Tuesday 20-21 November: D8 of the Kamala/Vudasi Shift. Exclusive to faculty, The Myth of the 21st Century. The mission is clear, purpose defined.

Sunday 19th November 2023:

Announcement of a forum makeover.

The Planetary Tantra forum is now closed, archived, but still available to read. The new Nemeta forum is:

Introducing The Rookie Room

Saturday 18th November 2023: Day 5 of Kamala shift with strong Vudasi overtone. (It’s an overtone when it comes from the succeeding constellation in the zodiacal order, and an undertone when it comes from the preceding one. Vudasi/Snaketamer succeeds Kamala/Scorpion in the zodiacal order. I may have said the opposite elsewhere.)

On November 9 in completion with BodhiMa, I had the pleasure and privilege to observe the conclusion of the lunar occultation of Venus in 2 Libra E182 aligned to the eyes of the Virgin. The conjunction was positioned off her left shoulder. I caught the event at the moment Venus emerged from behind the Moon which, having seen this a couple of times before, I call the jeweled earring of the Goddess. Venus like a sapphire, hangs just below the sunrise crescent, right off the lower pointed tip. I guess in this case it might be taken for an omen of Kamala’s Wedding.

Day 1 of Kamala Shift (& Vudasi Overtone) 2023

Monday 6th November 2023: This vid is from 11 months ago, but it fits the timing of the lunar apogee coming out of its stall between Crab and Lion and now, exactly today, aligned to Vira, the heart star of heroic nobility. George uses the leonine trope for his delivery. The speech of the girl at her father’s funeral illustrates the hate-charged Leftist insanity that is currently crashing down on many fronts. As George notes, it has only been six years since the Yuddahite assault on sanity went viral. I’m guessing it could take half that time or less for the counter-assault to unfold, and so it is that “Correction comes true” in the social order.

Sunday 5th November 2023: In 12 Ideosophy, a unit published in Adversarial Ethics Block:

12.100 Social Evil and the Master Scam

Wednesday 2nd November 2023: According to Mirita’s calendar based on the Pagan tradition of “cross-quarter” days, 2 – 5 November is the festival of Samhain (SAH-win), marking the end of harvest and the beginning of winter. This designation is more empirical and nature-oriented than the conventional system which places the beginning of winter at the winter solstice around December 21. Obviously, that is the middle of winter.

Some skywatching details to note, if that interests you: Throughout the year, the apparent motion of the sun reveals how it changes declination, higher or lower on the horizon. This is an observable change. But, as well, there is a change of speed which cannot be detected visually without a set-up for observation. The changing angle is called declination, a measurement of the solar angle off the celestial equator. As the sun declines southward (September 21 – December 21 or so) or northward (December 21 – March 21 or so), the speed of its declination changes in a regular pattern. This causes the angle of the sun to change rapidly for some periods and slowly for others. The speed of declination – that is, the rate at which it changes its angle to the visible horizon and the non-visible celestial equator – is zero at the solstices when it stands still momentarily to the north or south. The speed of declination increases from the solstices to the equinoxes over six months. At the equinoxes it reaches its extreme velocity. For instance, at the recent fall equinox, September 21 or so, the speed of declination was high, but then immediately it decelerates. At the midpoint between fall equinox and winter solstice, which is today, it reaches a mean or average velocity, decreasing. From this day onward, the rate of declination continues to decrease coming to zero at the winter solstice.

If you establish a viewing position in a room looking west and make marks for the setting sun on the windowsill, you will see that the marks (every five days) become wider after the summer solstice and reach maximum width at the fall equinox, then proceeding to the winter solstice they decrease in proportion to time. This is the set-up for detecting speed of declination.

Well, enough of that chitter chatter. For invoking the spirit of winter here is a poem spoken in Old Gaelic titled “News of Winter”

News of Winter
News for you
A stag bells
Drips of winter
Summer has departed
Wind high and cold
Low the sun
Short her run
Impetuous sea
Very red fern
Concealed its shape
Chanting the customary
The goose’s voice
Cold takes hold
Of birds’ wings
Time of ice
That is my news

Spoken here: Poem begins as 15:25mins.

Wednesday 25th October, 2023: New topic in member’s forum with excellent vid on the work of David Lynch and comparison of his manifold to that other director, JLL, born 48 days earlier. Both the similarities and the subtle differences in the source code are amazing:

A Tale of Two Directors

Also, here is a new feature for the Menhir. Each month as the sun enters an astrological sign (the starless sector, NOT the observable constellation), I will show the new symbol designed for ASB. At this moment, it’s Scorpio:

Curious, but what I find in his symbol (glyph, properly speaking) is a mirroring of the hook of the scorpion’s tail. Never saw it in quite that way before!

This evening I had the impulse to do a survey of participation in the PT Forum. Then, looking at the back-end history, I saw that it was created on October 25, 2018, exactly five years ago. How appropriate. Here it is:


Monday 23rd October 2023: Lately I’ve been working simultaneously on the definitive manual for Celestics and the equivalent for ASB: The Aristic Calling – The Complete Guide to Dialectic Astrology. The first involves the observable constellations, the second involves the starless signs. ASB (Astrology for StarBase) is a total reinvention of the method, tools, and techniques of astrology. Along the way, I asked Lisa, our impeccable in-house designer, to streamline and vectorize my new glyphs (symbols) for the 12 signs. Here is the design for Virgo:

Next step is to convert these custom-designed glpyhs to fonts. A little research shows that this can be done on Abobe Illustrator/Photo Shop – see link. If anyone out there has the skills to run that tool, I can offer a term of free membership to the School. I need three sets of redesigned symbols – signs (done), planets, aspects – to be converted to fonts for use in the ASB manual. Also, I would like to have some of my hand-drawn diagrams and schematics cleaned up to look more presentable and professional. I assume that anyone who can do the first task can also do the second. As an option to free membership, I would pay someone per hour for the time to complete these tasks. Write me from the contact button on the portal page.

For a preview, here is a page from my astrological work way back in the 1980s showing my new designs and explaining what the new forms signify:

With the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, I would today modify some of these explanations slightly, but I am happy to see that they stand up pretty well against the test of time.

Sunday 22nd October 2023: I know I’ve said this before a few times, but I cannot say it enough: Andalucía is the birthplace of Planetary Tantra. It is no accident that I, an American ex-patriate, received the Terma of Gaia Awakening there in August 2008. That’s going on 15 years now. I recall vividly how in November of that year I was in a state of manic ecstacy, like the divine madness Socrates descibes in Plato’s Symposium. Plato and other writers of the period used the words mania, entheos, theolêptos, katochos, enthousiasmos to describe this state of intensely erotic inspiration. Enthymesis is also the word for the passion of the Wisdom Goddess that compelled her to turn into the earth. The Spanish word for it is Duende. This is what it looks like:

Not to say I was dancing in the streets of the pueblos blancos scattered across the Serranía de Ronda, but I may as well have been. There is not a day when that feeling does not come back to me, licking my body like a delicious flame that makes me taste the tenous mortal thrill of being alive. And with that feeling, each time, comes the wave of gratitude. I can never express my gratitude to Andalucía enough. Look at these singers and dancers. Their voices and movements capture the outrageous thrill of Planetary Tantra. I love these faces, the expressions of those stunning women with dark flashing eyes, the cool allure of the men, the frantic but precise strumming of the guitars, the clapping hands, the swirling vortex of the dance, and the pride and elegance that melds them together like the love of Sophia does for Shaktas. The gratitude and affection I feel for these people and their art is immeasurable. As Paco de Lucía said ( paraphrase), “Anything done with skill and authenticity is Flamenco.” Lately, even now 15 years on from the Terma, I like to dance to the Gypsy Kings to get my day in gear. Mil gracias a Andalucía!

Friday 20th October 2023: D6 of the BodhiMa Shift. Lately, I’ve remarked concerning the world drama that it has to get worse before it gets worse. In the meantime, don’t forget to dance now and then. The record shows that, wow, white people can actually dance. And with such elegance and delight. Usually, I don’t care for jump-cutting but the synchronization of these video clips with the soundtrack is exceptional. Compare the style and attitude of dancing in those times with the jiggaboo vulgarity that passes for dance today. No contest!

This morning quite by chance a previous unit on the BodhiMa shift of 2021 during the coyid psyop came to my attention. I had entirely forgotten about it, of course. It is quite long but it delivers some imperative points on the exitentialist spin I’ve given to BodhiMa over the years. Perhaps it’s worth a review to set the mood and direction for the current shift.

Thursday 19th October 2023: New unit published in NUgenics block of 9 Biomysticism:

9.101 A Paraphrase of GHk for NUgenics

A new thread in PT Forum: Dystropic Escalation of the Narrative

Wednesday 18th October 2023:

New in the NUgenics forum:

Overview and Orientation of Hamer’s Laws of Dis-ease

Sunday 15th October 2023: D1 of BodhiMa shift, following the new moon of October 14 @ E 203 near Spora in the left hand of the Virgin. There was an annular solar eclipse on that day.

On the 16th the sunset crescent slides into the Scales and will be visible through the 17th. Due to the small extent of the Scales, about 20 degrees on the ecliptic, the sunset crescent will transit it in 40 hours and so BodhiMa shifts are not frequent.

Other outstanding events of note:

  • The lunar apogee (not observable) which has been in a stall between 142 and 145 between the Crab and Lion since June 22 now begins to shift into the Lion. Next month on November 6 it reaches Vira, the heart-star.
  • On November 23 Venus Lucifer reaches greatest elongation from the sun, appearing high in the pre-dawn sky in 8 Virgo @ E158 to the left of Vira.
  • The lunar perigee (not observable) arrives at the Matangi Point in 26 Pisces @ 256 where Neptune is currently hovering well into February 2024. I have designated this area at the tail of the Western Whale as the zone of “cold currents.”

The last item is a low-odds event that may portend a significant breakthrough in the cognitive dissonance of the world drama. The bearing of this affliction of the collective mindset hinges on the difference between the actual and provable intention of events (such as the alleged Hamas attack in Israel) and the mainstream narrative about those events. I consider this issue in the members unit on the The Gentian Initiative. I can see developments unfolding now and into early February 2024 that may indicate how the tactics of narrative deceit are collapsing. Be observant to this collapse on three fronts: 1) reportage of the Israel-Hamas conflict, 2) the ongoing hype and fearmongering about AI as a threat to civilization, and 3) the meltdown of Disney and related companies who have for decades manipulated human imagination through the medium of cinema.

Another exceedingly trivial instance of the narrative becoming unable to hide the monstrosity of events is the meltdown of the Markles, Harry and Meghan. These two characters are of no importance in the world drama, of course. They are vapid attention whores unworthy of attention. Nevertheless, the collapse of their con game illustrates how the Matangi factor is working in the social media theater. A Hollywood producer openly called them grifters. All their ventures are collapsing, they are widely viewed as scheming hypocrites, and they are fast becoming pariahs detested by untold millions around the world. Despite their PR being upheld by the William Morris Agency, the narrative about them cannot conceal the obvious venality of their actions and lifestyles.

Tuesday 10th October 2023:

Signal Flare for Thelions

Those of you who rise early may have had occasion to see Venus Lucifer, the Morning Star, high in the sky with the crescent moon and Vira, the heart-star of the Lion constellation.

In the art of celestial mantique, you combine observation and visualization. Sometimes you visualize what you are seeing when you have the chance to observe the sky. Otherwise, you visualize it without observation. Sometimes, you can cheat and use (screenshot above) to picture what you did not have the occasion to observe.

We are currently in completion of the Shodashi shift of 2023 which ends on October 14. Completion begins with the last quarter moon, the hinge, marking the start of the last seven days of the shift. The hinge appears in the sky before sunrise on the 21st day of the shift, a Fibonacci number. Continued practice reveals that the period of completion is dense with DI, Dakini Instruction. “In completion,” as the jargon goes, you have the opportunity to detect in your mental and psychic activity the frequencies of highly distilled intel. The last quarter moon, also called the balsamic moon, is like a chalice full of rare nectar, like a balm of balsam. Often completion comes with the palpable sensation of being squeezed like a lemon or peach. It carries a chemical intensity, literally, due to the fact that in this phase DI converts to nectar-like properties that spread through the body at the cellular level. You receive the balsamic distillation of Dakini wisdom. Completion can at times feel uncomfortably intense but the juice is worth the squeeze.

This particular signal combined the sunrise crescent with Venus Lucifer and the star Vira, the signal of spiritual aristocracy and high clan status among the Anthropines. I read it as a call to the solidarity of the Thelions. In the constellation of The-Lion. At this moment I want to emphasize my wish to replace Gnostic with Thelion. Gnosticism is dead and gone. Although it still exists in an upscaled rendering in PT, it is better for Shaktas to call themselves Thelions than Gnostics. Theleté is the male Aeon consort of Sophia. Theleté is the true “heavenly father.” A Thelion is someone dedicated to personal sovereignty free of social and religious influences. That is, a self-intending actor in the world drama who knows the world to be a stage set for Sophia’s Dreaming. This signal reminds you to own and sustain your leonine identity and to embody the code of the aristocratic warrior class represented by the Lion.

Upon detecting and reading a signal in the celestial writing, we often look from one planet to another. Currently, Jupiter is prominent rising early in the evening sky. High and large, you can’t miss it. Jupiter is the planetary body associated with Theleté. It now stands in the Ram, retrograde, hovering at the Kalki Point in 15 Taurus @ E45 ecliptic longitude. It was in that exact degree first in March and April this year, and then again from September 24 to October 4, and will be there again from March 16 to March 21, 2024 (triple pass due to retrograde loop). Jupiter is easy to find and I encourage you to pay attention and set your eyes on that spectacle. When you read the sky by direct observation, informed about what you are observing, you register in the engrams of your NLP circuits a mirroring of the stellar engram in the cosmic environment. You imprint your neuronal circuits with specific code-lines of celestial mantique. This is a routine and provable activity of the practice.

Introduction to The Menhir, Continued:

Notifications sent out via the Mailing List to both Members and Subscribers will also inform you of these ongoing activities. This page mirrors those periodic announcements by email and in some cases alerts you to new content, be it talk or text, that gets omitted from the announcements due to the rapidity and fluidity of John’s ongoing efforts to amplify the curricula, refine and reframe the content, and provide clear and “simplific” direction for your studies.

Announcements at the Menhir consistently track progressing content throughout the School and in 16. Planetary Tantra, free to all. It will also signal content on 18. Breaking Nous, and 17. The Terma and the Terton, available to Members only.

The sacred groves where the Mysteries were originally performed were sanctuaries of natural beauty where rocks and mineral formations were carefully observed. There might be a special rock at the boundary of the sanctuary, as there was a “stepping stone” on Infinity Ridge:

There it was a flat stone (barely visible in this photo) on the left at the base of the wild olive standing offside the welcome grove. When you stepped on it you formally entered the ritual space of the Ridge, then proceeding through the gracious arboreal corridor to the Devi Tree. (Sierra del Hacho, Andalucia. Sierra de Libar to the right, northwest)

In many cases, sacred stone markers were erected in the wild sanctuaries. A single standing stone was called a menhir (Brythonic maen, “stone” and hir, “long”). An arresting geomagnetic marker in the force field of the nemeton, the menhir had acoustic properties as well. Touching it, you could hear differently. Sitting in contact with it would deepen the shaman’s reach into the Nagual. It also served as a geodetic marker for placing the local site in the setting of seasonal cycles, aligned to the solstices and equinoxes, the cross-quarter days, and the rising and setting of prominent stars. Hence, it was a multi-purpose tool of orientation.

It is advisable to check the Menhir for orientation on Nemeta from time to time. Below you will find entries listed in reverse chronological order, most recent at top for easy access. This list will grow and morph in the course of each month. At the completion of each month, the activity recorded will be archived in the curriculum panel: “ARCHIVES”

One final word: I do wish to keep Nemeta supplied with occasional fresh input, additional to what it requires of me to maintain the burgeoning structure, the ongoing organization of the Blocks, editing, revision, etc. But I can only do what I can do, and as it pleases me… Time is at premium for me now and I have undertaken a writing project, the consummation of my life’s work and the closing revelation of my mystic journey.
