Note! You can also have the news send as a newsletter at the end of each month (click here). The newsletter is retrospective. The news below is written ongoingly.
January! The deep, cold winter begins and the powers of Mother Earth work deep in the darkness. It gives concentration, and the time is suited for the inner work: meditation and the telling of ghost stories, fairy tales, warm juice, tea and æbleskiver (Danish snack).
On the first Full Moon after Winter Solstice (January 10) I started the projects I want to work with in the new year.
The first New Moon of the year (in Danish: Nytårsny – January 24) is wishfulfilling and a safety valve for economical problems. In folklore it is said that some rituals can be practiced from “Blackmoon” (Sortmåne) to the first time the New Moon breaks through. That´s where I will perform vision quests in the forest.
My project for the new year is to restart the shamanic vagabond trips, which I have been on for over 36 years. Due to my hospitalization and liver illness, I have had a break where I´ve used Rold Forest as a wood sanctuary (see my article: My Life as a Vagabond).
My first trip is going to Greenland, where I will go on a quest for the Northern Lights. This will happen in September.
The new shamanic vagabond trips will be a kind of reverse vision quests. They will be quests into the state where you are going beyond all ideas and images (the third aspect of Primordial Meditation). You could also call them exercises in Wild Magic, since they will be based on the magic of something you haven´t created yourself. In connection with this I have started writing a new booklet called Primordial Meditation and Wild Magic. Wild Magic is already now a part of my Meditation Mentoring and Forest Therapy practice.
I will cover my new shamanic vagabond trips in this newsletter. Besides this you can follow them on my Facebook profile, where I will supply with my photography.
In my cultural criticism I will continue the critique of pseudoscience and scientism (the Illuminati aspect of The Matrix Conspiracy), which I began with my Ebook on Yuval Noah Harari (use this book as an introduction). Pseudoscience and scientism are spreading in a way I hadn´t foreseen when I first created the concept of The Matrix Conspiracy, both in New Age environments (where we see pseudoscientists like Gregg Braden on the top of Watkins List of 100 most Spiritually Influential Living People) and in Atheist fundamentalist/transhumanist environments (Yuvan Noah Harari is also on the top of the most influential people in the world). I don´t believe it is a coincidence that precisely these people are being promoted as they are on the international scene. The whole thing is, as suggested, a conspiracy (the Matrix Conspiracy is now so obvious that I directly claim that we are talking about a conspiracy – but before judging me as a conspiracy theorist, you´ll need to study my special angle on conspiracy theories - see my article: The Matrix Conspiracy Updates).
Scientism is seeking to eliminate both philosophy and religion (and paradoxically enough also science), and it is therefore no surprise that philosophy of science now is sought removed (or distorted into sophism) on all educations. Philosophy of science is the discipline which investigates what qualifies as science, and was therefore traditionally mandatory on all universities. Now it borders to heresy to draw on philosophy of science. So, that is precisely what I´m going to do in a coming four-part article series. It will be a rewritten series on Gregg Braden, Rupert Sheldrake, and Richard Dawkins (the links are to the old articles).
In the discussion I will especially deal with the creation-evolution controversy, and show how both sides of the debate are ending in pseudoscience and scientism.
My working titles for the articles (they may be changed):
1) The Creation-Evolution Controversy - Seen in Light of Philosophy of Science (The Creation-Evolution Controversy: Part 1)
2) The Scientific Fakery of New Thought Guru Gregg Braden (The Creation-Evolution Controversy: Part 2)
3) Rupert Sheldrake´s Distortion of Philosophy of Science (The Creation-Evolution Controversy: Part 3)
4) The Scientific Treason of Richard Dawkins and The Skeptical Movement (The Creation-Evolution Controversy: Part 4)
