How Colin Wilson’s ‘The Robot’ explains the nature of Gnostic duality

How Colin Wilson’s ‘The Robot’ explains the nature of Gnostic duality

“The person you call ‘you’ lives in the left side of your brain.” – Colin Wilson

My research into the Gnostic and Christian Science of Human Duality has led me to some very interesting people. One such person that I would like to introduce to you in case you have never come across his Great Work is the late British Philosopher and author, Colin Wilson.

Wilson was an English writer, philosopher, and novelist had written well over 150 books in his long career. Books that have impacted millions of people around the world like “The Outsider, Mind Parasites and the Occult.”

Over the past several months I have been studying Wilson’s body of work and I have watched many interviews with the author. What I have found is an interesting correlation with my own research on Duality and Wilson’s main underlying theme in his books which deals with a human psychic condition that he likes to call “the Robot.”

He had even said in several interviews that all his books were based on this single premise.

Wilson had written in The Other Side; “AS I APPROACH the age of fifty — just twice the age at which my first book, The Outsider, appeared — I realise more clearly than ever that my life has been dominated by a single obsession: a search for what I call ‘the other mode of consciousness’.”

Author, Gary Lachman who was a friend of Wilson and author of his autobiography, In Beyond the Robot said that it’s “the central human problem.”

In Wilson’s mind, “the Robot” was how our consciousness operates on ‘auto-pilot’, narrowing our perception so as to enable us to handle everyday life – and the need to get beyond it in order to evolve. He believed “the Robot” controlled the part of our brains that in our modern culture has become over-used and over-developed.

Wilson’s theory was originally based on the facts that ‘psychologically,’ we consist of three major components: the left- brain, the right-brain, and the “robot” which he first believed to be located in the small posterior section of the brain known as the pre-frontal cortex. But he said that after ten years of research he later came upon a crucial 1960’s study that threw a new light on his work which resulted in what he called ‘revelatory.’

In Chapter Two of Frankenstein’s Castle, The Riddle of the ‘Two Selves,’ Wilson explains how the research in 1960’s by  Michael Gazzaniga and Nobel Prize-winning research of  Roger Wolcott Sperry on split-brain patients changed his mind. It was after thoroughly studying this research he had come to the conclusion that the seat of our conscious ‘ego’ is the left side of the brain and the seat of the unconscious is the right.

He writes, “FOR SOME REASON that no physiologist yet understands, human beings have two brains. Or rather, the brain they possess is ‘double’ — almost as if a mirror had been placed down the middle, so that one half reflects the other. We seem to have two hearing centres, two visual centres, two muscle control centres, even two memories.

Why this should be so is baffling — one guess being that one of the brains is a ‘spare’ in case the other gets damaged. What seems even odder is that the left half of the brain controls the right side of the body, and vice versa.”

He goes on to explain the research of Sperry and Gazzaniga who studied a human patient whose brain had been split to prevent epileptic attacks.

Wilson had written about the patient; “He seemed to be perfectly normal, except for one oddity — which they expected anyway. He could read with his right eye, but not with his left. It had been known since the nineteenth century that, in human beings, the two halves of the brain seem to have different functions: ‘right for recognition, left for language’.

People who had damage to the right cerebral hemisphere were unable to recognise simple patterns, or enjoy music, but they could still speak normally,” Wilson said.

He further explained, “People with left-brain damage were able to recognise patterns, but their speech was impaired. Obviously, then, the left deals with language, and you would expect a split-brain patient to be unable to read with his right eye (connected, remember, to the opposite side of the brain).

Sperry’s patient was also unable to write anything meaningful (i.e. complicated) with his left hand. They noticed another oddity. If the patient bumped into something with his left side, he did not notice. And the implications here were very odd indeed.

Not only did the split-brain operation give the patient two separate minds; it also seemed to restrict his identity, or ego, to the left side,” Wilson said.

He further explains how split-brain patients see the world with each side of the brain proving the left hemisphere is an unconscious observer with no verbal abilities and the right hemisphere is the conscious side or the real you (I AM).

Wilson had written; “When they placed an object in his left hand, and asked him what he was holding, he had no idea. Further experiments underlined the point. If a split-brain patient is shown two different symbols — say a circle and a square — with each eye, and is asked to say what he has just seen, he replies ‘A square’.

Asked to draw with his left hand what he has seen, and he draws a circle. Asked what he has just drawn, he replies: ‘A square’. And when one split-brain patient was shown a picture of a nude male with the right-brain, she blushed; asked why she was blushing, she replied truthfully: ‘I don’t know.’

The implications are clearly staggering. The person you call ‘you’ lives in the left side of your brain.

And a few centimetres away there is another person, a completely independent identity. Where language is concerned, this other person is almost an imbecile. In other respects, he is more competent than the inhabitant of the left-brain; for example, he can make a far more accurate perspective drawing of a house. In effect, the left-brain person is a scientist, the right-brain an artist.”

Wilson concluded, “These, then, are the basic facts about the two halves of the brain.”

It was a Eureka moment for Colin Wilson and in my opinion, also for the ancient teachings of Gnosticism.

In my opinion, it was if the old science of Gnostic Duality had been truly validated!

Wilson further said, “The left ego is the master of consciousness; the right is master of the unconscious.

And the relation between the two is not unlike the relation between Laurel and Hardy in the old movies. He said “Ollie is the left-brain, the boss. Stan takes his cues from Ollie. When Ollie is in a good mood, Stan is delighted. When Ollie is depressed, Stan is plunged into the depths of gloom. Stan is inclined to over-react.”

Wilson concluded, “Because it feels lost, bewildered, unsure of itself, the conscious ego”—our left brain—“searches obsessively for meaning.” In the process “it has achieved more in three thousand years of bicameral consciousness than in the previous million years of inner unity.”

Wilson had said that the use of psychedelic drugs can turn off certain chemical messengers which results in a form of ‘primal perception.’ He had written in The Other Side;

“The robot seems to be located in the brain. This is clear from the effects of psychedelic drugs like LSD and mescalin, which apparently achieve their effect by paralyzing certain ‘chemical messengers’ in the brain. The result is certainly a form of ‘primal perception’— as Aldous Huxley noted when he took mescalin; he quoted Blake’s statement: ‘If the doors of perception were cleansed, every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.’ So cleansing the ‘doors of perception’ is basically a matter of brain physiology.”

Who is the Robot?

Wilson stated that we each have a “robotic” level of consciousness that helps operate almost as a machine or what we can call a taskmaster. It is that side of our brains that can handle the various things in life that do not take much thought and interaction once you have learned the task. It also works unconsciously to help us to identify and deal with threats in our environment.

In describing his own personal experiences with the Robot, Wilson said in many interviews that he has even caught the Robot making love to his wife. He stated that when he or anyone was in this mode, they go into almost a trance-like robotic state where they do not truly enjoy the experiences of life.

One example Wilson describes of the robotic trance-like state is when people first learn to drive they are conscious of all the nuances of driving such as steering, changing gears and braking but after a certain amount of time, we find ourselves performing these tasks almost effortlessly.

The “Robot has taken over” and the “task is learned.”

Wilson had written; “This robot is a labor-saving device. When an activity has been performed often enough, he takes it over, and what is more, he does it a great deal more efficiently than I could do it consciously…..But, the robot has taken over too many functions.”

He also mentions a man named Julian Jaynes in his book Atlantis and the Kingdom of the Neanderthals: 100,000 Years of Lost History. He said that Jaynes realized that man is trapped in a grey world created by the left cerebral hemisphere, the ‘scientific’ part of the brain.

In Wilson mind, this is both a good and bad thing.

He said that when we let the Robot take over our lives, the wonder of our amazing world will have little or no meaning to us. We no longer appreciate the beauty in life like a sunset or our children’s first steps. It is as if we were miserable zombies just going about our daily lives doing mundane tasks.

In a fascinating introduction to the left/right brain dichotomy, Wilson explains his theories in the book, Frankenstein’s Castle: The Right Brain: Door to Wisdom (Back cover). He published the book in 1980 after his research into the left and right brain and the recent findings related to lateralization of brain function.

The back cover of Frankenstein’s Castle: The Right Brain: Door to Wisdom reads:

“Man has two brains. This piece of information was probably gleaned when the first Stone Age axe cleaved the first human skull, yet only in the last century has it been confirmed that man also has two minds. In Frankenstein’s Castle Colin Wilson surveys the whole range of current two-brain research and draws some very personal conclusions.

He shows that, by some quirk of evolution, we are trapped in our left-hand brain, in a dark, dingy, limited half of “Frankenstein’s Castle’, while a few centimeters away another ‘me’, older, wiser and far more optimistic, exists independently. But the two brains, the two ‘me’s do have a connection – and a wealth of information, inspiration and happiness is available if we can somehow allow the current to flow between them.

He concludes, “If we can find the key to Frankenstein’s castle, we can claim our rightful inheritance.”

In the book, Wilson emphatically states that the left brain looks ‘inward’, the right ‘outward’.

Wilson discusses the development of the left-brain ego and states that the right-brain as criminal which controls our energy supply. Wilson proposes in the book the question ‘How can we persuade it to give us more?’

He also incorporates his research into occult powers such as clairvoyance, hypnosis, telepathy, dowsing, poltergeists and other ‘supernatural’ phenomenon which are all deemed to be the work of right-brain consciousness. The right brain is also the cause of multiple personalities and paranormal powers.

How do we take our lives back from the Robot?

Wilson says that our Robot experiences life on a daily basis from a “worm’s eye view,” seeing only that which is in front of us. He stated that we can reach peak experiences and live full lives when we consciously step back and look at the big picture from both the worm’s eye view and the bird’s eye view.

In Colin’s mind and his own personal experiences, this worm’s eye view and the bird’s eye view suddenly and spontaneously merge, we can reach these “peak experiences” to then appreciate life in a whole new way. Wilson stated that humans can reach “peak performance” when we learn to use all of our brains by re-engaging the right side of the brain in our daily activities so we can reach a heightened state of consciousness and energy.

A peak experience is a moment accompanied by a euphoric mental state often achieved by self-actualizing individuals. Expressing one’s creativity, quest for spiritual enlightenment, pursuit of knowledge (Gnosis), and the desire to give to and/or positively transform society are examples of self-actualization.

Research shows that when people live lives that are different from their true nature and capabilities, they are less likely to be happy than those whose goals and lives match. For example, someone who has an inherent potential to be a great artist or teacher may never realize his/her talents if their energy is focused on attaining the basic needs of humans.

The concept of peak performance was originally developed by Abraham Maslow in 1964, who describes peak experiences as “rare, exciting, oceanic, deeply moving, exhilarating, elevating experiences that generate an advanced form of perceiving reality, and are even mystic and magical in their effect upon the experimenter.”

There are several unique characteristics of a peak experience, but each element is perceived together in a holistic manner that creates the moment of reaching one’s full potential. Peak experiences can range from simple activities to intense events; however, it is not necessarily about what the activity is, but the ecstatic, blissful feeling that is being experienced during it.(Wikipedia)

Wilson stated that in order to have a truly full and rich life, we must find a way to control this Robot by keeping it on a leash. What Wilson meant by this is that if we become aware of its functions, and understand how it helps us in life, we can not only appreciate the Robot, we can control it and use it to our advantage.

In the book, New Pathways in Psychology, Wilson noted that “it is one of the absurd paradoxes of psychology that it has taken three centuries to reach the conclusion that man actually possesses a mind and a will.” (p.47).

Wilson used a type of imaginative engagement or what we can call a Western Mediation strategy to help bring both hemispheres into sync. One way to reach the peak experience was to do what he called the “pen trick” where you stared at a pen held against a wall until “attention becomes fatigued, at which point a final burst of concentration will give access to the peak experience”.

Wilson’s “pen trick” appears to be simply self-taught meditation. 

As many of you know, to meditate, many people will perform a single-pointed concentration in which they focus on one thing or one word or phrase allowing no other thoughts to interrupt your laser focus. Meditation trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness that allows people to control their thoughts and ultimately, themselves. Hence, they are in control of their “own will (the steering wheel for our brains).”

You see, the human will is the key to Wilson’s solution to the problem of the Robot controlling the human psychic condition. He said we must be conscious of how we are living and if we are acting in a robotic way, we must take back the steering wheel to our brains from the Robot.

Once we are aware of our own Robot or what the Gnostics would call Duality, we can then become aware of who we are and how our bodies, brains, and minds operate. We become conscious beings who understand the knowledge of the Truth of who we are and how to have rich and full lives or what can be called “peak experiences.”

This knowledge (Gnosis) can then be used via your true spiritual will. It then becomes a choice and an act of will to take our minds and bodies back from the robot from the steering wheel and put him/her in the passenger seat.

I love this explanation of Colin Wilson’s ideas of human evolution by Geoff Ward from ColinWilsonsWorld.com

Ward explains that Wilson came to understand evolution not as a mechanical process, driven by ‘survival of the fittest’, but with the goal of increased consciousness and enjoying the process while you walk the path. He regarded life as not a dreary existence, but a splendid descent into matter ie: the material realm in order to discover the true spirit of self which gives us all the greatest freedom to live and give purposeful meaning in order to colonize it.

I will conclude with an ominous warning by Hermann Hesse that Wilson included in his book. The message is to Europe about a ‘primeval, occult, Asiatic ideal’ — an ideal he calls ‘Russian man’ that prophetically seems to deal with current events.

In the twentieth century, Hermann Hesse has been one of the few major writers to understand this; in Glimpse into Chaos (1919), he warns Europe against being taken over by a ‘primeval, occult, Asiatic ideal’ — an ideal he calls ‘Russian man’.

Russian man, he says, ‘is not to be adequately described either as a “hysteric” or as a drunkard or
criminal, or as a poet and holy man, but only as the simultaneous combination of all these characteristics’.

What Hesse is describing here is the future revolutionary man whose resides in Golgatha (The Skull) with Christ at the Logos ie: Meaning reason which has always been “The Middle Path.”

The place of our Lords and our own crucifixion.

A Gnostic Warrior whose character is not unlike the ‘revolutionary’ alter-ego of Louis Vive.

The Brain Science of Gnostic Duality Part #1

Gnostic duality is an ancient concept based on the fact that there are two separate parts, elements, and or aspects to human beings. One element is immortal being made of light (spirit or soul) and the other mortal darkness (flesh or materiality).

The essence of this dualistic philosophy centers around the Gnostic teachings that these two opposing forces are an inherent part of human natures and these forces are constantly in an eternal battle to gain control over the minds and bodies of humankind.

Gnostic Duality

One of the main Gnostic scientific teachings for the past 3,000 years is that we humans are dualistic beings. What the Gnostics had meant in simple modern terms is that there are two separate parts, elements, and or aspects to we humans. One element is immortal being made of light (spirit or soul) and the other mortal darkness (flesh or materiality).

The human spirit was of divine origin and good which came from the True God. It was made of an immortal light that descended from the heavens. The body was opposed to this light because it was inherently material, earthly and can be led to commit acts of evil. It was made of mortal flesh ruled by a False creator God who held sway over those materialistic souls who have not reached spiritual Gnosis. (more…)

Demon Face: The hellish story of a man with two faces

Demon Face: The hellish story of a man with two faces

“For some unforgiven wickedness of my forefathers I am knit to this fiend – for a fiend it surely is. I beg and beseech you to crush it out of human semblance, even if I die for it.” – Edward Mordrake AKA Demon Face

In 1895, The Boston Post published an article titled “The Wonders of Modern Science” that presented the “human freaks” who were cataloged by the British scientists which included a mermaid, lobster boy, and the famous story of a man with two faces, Edward Mordrake, who would become the viral poster boy of modern urban legends.

But this is no legend or myth. It is a real medical condition and as it has been wisely said, facts are often stranger than fiction.

The story of Mordrake with his demon face gained so much recognition in the medical community that two respected physicians documented the facts which they included in the 1896 medical encyclopedia. This entry was later reported by George Milbry Gould in his book, ” Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine.”

Gould writes; One of the weirdest as well as the most melancholy stories of human deformity is that of Edward Mordake, said to have been heir to one of the noblest peerages in England. He never claimed the title, however, and committed suicide in his twenty-third year.

He lived in complete seclusion, refusing the visits even of the members of his own family. He was a young man of fine attainments, a profound scholar, and a musician of rare ability. His figure was remarkable for its grace, and his face – that is to say, his natural face – was that of an Antinous. But upon the back of his head was another face, that of a beautiful girl, “lovely as a dream, hideous as a devil.”

The female face was a mere mask, “occupying only a small portion of the posterior part of the skull, yet exhibiting every sign of intelligence, of a malignant sort, however.” It would be seen to smile and sneer while Mordake was weeping. The eyes would follow the movements of the spectator, and the lips “would gibber without ceasing.”

No voice was audible, but Mordake avers that he was kept from his rest at night by the hateful whispers of his “devil twin”, as he called it, “which never sleeps, but talks to me forever of such things as they only speak of in Hell. No imagination can conceive the dreadful temptations it sets before me.

For some unforgiven wickedness of my forefathers I am knit to this fiend – for a fiend it surely is. I beg and beseech you to crush it out of human semblance, even if I die for it.”

Such were the words of the hapless Mordake to Manvers and Treadwell, his physicians. In spite of careful watching, he managed to procure poison, whereof he died, leaving a letter requesting that the “demon face” might be destroyed before his burial, “lest it continues its dreadful whisperings in my grave.” At his own request, he was interred in a waste place, without stone or legend to mark his grave.”

The two possible medical conditions to cause people to have two heads and or two faces are known as “craniofacial duplication” and “craniopagus parasiticus.”

Craniofacial duplication is caused by an abnormal protein expression that can cause the facial features of an embryo to be duplicated on other areas of the head and sometimes the full face is duplicated.

Most likely, Mordrake suffered from what is called “craniopagus parasiticus” which is a rare condition where you have conjoined twins with one not being fully functional and act almost like a real-life parasite to the functional or dominant twin  (hence “parasitic”). It is said to occur in approximately four to six cases in 10,000,000 births.

Lali Singh was born in a small village in India with the condition in 2008.

Rather than believe that this was a curse as in Mordrakes case, her fellow tribe members believed her to be an incarnation of the Hindu goddess Durga, who is traditionally portrayed with multiple limbs. After she had died at only a few months old, the villagers constructed a temple in her honor.

In 2006, researchers reported on the successful separation of craniopagus parasiticus was performed on February 18, 2005 at the Benha Pediatric Hospital in Egypt and in February 2006, the child was still alive and in relatively good health.

The authors operated on a child who was 10 months for 9 hours. Apparently, upon slicing into the main arterial supply to the parasite, bleeding was the most serious problem doctors had faced with the child receiving four liters of blood to save its life.

After separation of the parasitic head, the dura was repaired using artificial dural grafts. Free bone flaps from the parasite were used to cover the osseous defect in the autosite. Skin flaps from the parasite were also used to cover the cranium. (1)

In 2016, researchers reported that a woman who was an ethnic Amhara of Ethiopia gave birth to a baby girl whose head had a parasitic twin protruding from her temporal area.

The parasitic twin had two deformed lower limbs, of which one was rudimentary, and long bones of the bilateral lower limbs and some pelvic bone. Dissection of the mass of the parasitic twin’s body revealed the intestine but no chest organs or abdominal organs.

After counseling the mother, a successful operation to remove the parasite was done. Postoperation, the baby was reported to comfortably suckled on the breast of her mother and had no neurological problems. (2)

Edward Mordrake’s story went viral again thanks to the TV series American Horror Story which portrays Mordrake has a murderer driven to kill rather than suicide by his evil demon face.

In my previous articles on the theory of Gnostic duality, I explain the ancient belief that there are two separate parts and or aspects to human beings. One element is immortal being made of light (spirit or soul) and the other mortal darkness (flesh or materiality).

This ancient Gnostic science was later developed into the teachings of Christianity which are represented in the Scripture as good and evil, airy and unclean spirits, and angels and demons,

These beliefs were often verified by ancient scientists in the form of what we may call today “birth defects,” which is a physical or biochemical abnormality that is present at birth and that may be inherited or the result of environmental influence.

Alien hand syndrome (AHS)

Alien hand syndrome (AHS)

Imagine having little to no free will over the movement of your limbs. Now picture yourself with a hand that you literally have no control over.

A hand which seems to have a mind of its own and often, it is extremely adversarial to you. It will get mad and cause you harm. A hand that also wants to attack and hurt you to the point that it will even try to wrap itself around your neck in order to strangle you, slap your face and leave you black and blue.

I know this sounds like the plot of Hollywood Horror film but this actually happens to people in real life. Welcome to The Science of Human Duality in a modern world where people with brain lesions, seizures and surgery experience a strange  medical phenomenon known as “Alien hand syndrome (AHS), Alien Limb, Anarchic Hand or Dr. Strangelove syndrome.” It was originally called “la main étrangère (‘the foreign hand’)” by Brion and Jedynak in 1972 describing patients with corpus callosal tumors.

In Stanley Kubrick’s movie Dr Strangelove, the main character has AHS and is described as “erratic.” His right hand appears to have a mind of its own, at times raising his dark gloved hand in a Nazi salute and at other times, clutching his own throat as if to choke him. Dr Strangelove must try to restrain this rebellious right hand with his left hand.

Alien hand syndrome (AHS) can be described as a medical condition that affects that brain which causes people not being able to control their bodily movements and their limbs seem to move on their own. For example, a person with AHS may move their hand, hit, and or reach for something even though they had “no thought or desire” that caused the hand to move.

It is important to note that most patients describe the involuntary hand movement as if it as a mind of its own and It is that AHS most commonly affects the left hand and leg. 

Today, medical Experts describe alien hand syndrome as a phenomenon reflecting a functional “disentanglement” between thought and action. It has been proposed that alien hand should be strictly defined as involuntary movements of the limb, whether appearing purposeful or not, and should be associated with a sense of loss of ownership (Hassan and Josephs 2016).

There are many reports that this alien hand appears to act mostly in a negative or hurtful manner towards the patient and or their loved ones. It is as if the limb has some unseen “psychic phenomenon or unknown entity” controlling it.

Patients with AHS may personify the limb, referring to it as “my little friend,” and often report the limb as “having a mind of its own.” Many researchers quote an example of a patient who reported that her hand intermittently attempted to choke her. Patients often attempt to control the hand as though it were a rebellious child, sometimes rebuking, holding, slapping, or chastising it. Most people who suffer from this disease simply feel estranged from the hand or accept only a tenuous relationship with it.(Clinical Evaluation for Aphasia -Kaufman & Milstein 2013)

In 1908, German neuro-psychiatrist, Kurt Goldstein was the first person to publish a detailed case report about a right-handed woman who had suffered a stroke affecting her left side from which she had partially recovered. The problem was now the patient had no control over her left arm which she described as if it belonged to another person and performed actions that were independent of her own will.

The patient complained of a feeling of “strangeness” in relation to the goal-directed movements of the left hand and insisted that “someone else” was moving the left hand, and that she was not moving it herself.

One day, Goldstein’s patient complained, “There must be an evil spirit in the hand!”

Goldstein first connoted the “alien” quality of unilateral repetitive grasping, the impression that an alternate entity is responsible for the behavior (Goldstein 1908).

Researchers in a 2014 study, describe this negative behavior as the following; “Alien hand might manifest as a self-groping behavior and self-oppositional behavior. Autocriticism has also been reported, with the person slapping the alien hand with the normal hand. The person loses control of the affected hand as if it is being controlled by an external force. The alien hand might grab onto things and the person might have to use the other limb to release the objects from it.”

The researchers conclude, “At extremes, the alien hand has been reported to even suffocate the patient.”

A 2013 study reveals the case report of an 84-year-old African American woman who developed AHS and was so distressed by her involuntary movements that she thought her arm was “possessed by the Devil”.

The researchers had said, “An 84-year-old African-American right hand dominant woman presented to the emergency department complaining of headache and episodes of uncontrollable left-hand movements. She described the episodes wherein her left arm moved uncontrollably as if it was groping around trying to grab herself on her body. The patient explained that while asleep she felt that “someone is trying to grab means if someone is in bed with me”.

The researchers concluded, “At times, she felt the need to talk to her hand or yell at it in order to command it to stop these embarrassing movements. These movements occurred while she was attempting to eat, watch television and during use of the toilet. The patient was evidently very distressed by these events and thought that her arm was “possessed by the Devil”.”

A 2007 study study reveals the story of a 41 year-old, left-handed, HIV positive, white woman who was admitted to a hospital in 2005 after she suffered severe headaches on her “right side” of the head which later developed into drooling and the loss of control of her left hand which she called a “monster.”

During the same period, she developed brief episodes of left-hand weakness associated with dysarthria. Two weeks later, the patient lost control of her left hand, mainly at night where upon waking her left hand was grasping her right arm. Subsequently, her dominant hand presented extravolitional movements, as if having a will of its own, not responding to volitional commands such as opening a door or holding an umbrella, but groping unneeded objects and having difficulty releasing them.

The patient often found her left hand closed, in front of her face, as if it were “looking” at her.

She was afraid of her hand: “it seemed to be a monster”.

What causes alien hand syndrome?

Most people who have been diagnosed with alien hand syndronme (AHS) suffer from lesions and tumors located in the right hemisphere of the brain and from damage to the corpus callosum which can give rise to “purposeful” actions in the sufferer’s non-dominant hand (an individual who is left-hemisphere-dominant will experience the left hand becoming alien, and the right hand will turn alien in the person with right-hemisphere dominance).

But in the vast majority of patients, the damage occurs on the right side of the brain which causes their left hand to become alien.

In “the callosal variant”, the patient’s hand counteracts voluntary actions performed by the other, “good” hand. Two phenomena that are often found in patients with the callosal alien hand are agonistic dyspraxia and diagnostic dyspraxia.

Numerous cases have been reported of the syndrome after surgery for epilepsy and seizures. which is a  neurosurgical procedure with an incision involving the corpus callosum. The corpus callosum is a band of nerve fibers in the middle of our brains that acts as a mediator between our left and right hemispheres of our brain.

Apparently, once its cut, all neurological hell can break loose and then it appears that an alien or little demon then controls the left hand.

HERE IS SOME AGNOSTIC SCIENCE FOR THE FEW GNOSTICS OUT THERE….

Agonistic dyspraxia involves compulsive automatic execution of motor commands by one hand when the patient is asked to perform movements with the other hand. For example, when a patient with callosal damage was instructed to pull a chair forward, the affected hand would decisively and impulsively push the chair backwards.[14]

Agonistic dyspraxia can thus be viewed as an involuntary competitive interaction between the two hands directed toward completion of a desired act in which the affected hand competes with the unaffected hand to complete a purposive act originally intended to be performed by the unaffected hand.

Diagonistic dyspraxia, on the other hand, involves a conflict between the desired act in which the unaffected hand has been engaged and the interfering action of the affected hand which works to oppose the purpose of the desired act intended to be performed by the unaffected hand. For instance, when Akelaitis’s patients underwent surgery to the corpus callosum to reduce epileptic seizures, one patient’s left alien hand would frequently interfere with the right hand. For instance, while trying to turn over to the next page with the right hand, his left hand would try to close the book.

SURGERY FOR EPILEPSY

Pope Pius XII declared against the practice of lobotomy to treat (change) socially unbecoming behaviour, maintaining that a lesion to the frontal lobes would strip a person of free will. This thorny issue was debated at some length by an ad hoc committee of ecclesiastics and scientists. They came to the conclusion that the freedom of will of people affected by such a lesion would be degraded, and advised against their becoming priests or receiving Holy Communion.

Here are some good videos that further detail this research.

Dark City: A film about extraterrestrial parasites who seek to control people’s minds

Dark City: A film about extraterrestrial parasites who seek to control people’s minds

“They control everything here including the sun, that’s why it’s always dark. They can’t stand the light.” – Dr. Schreber

In the 1998 film, Dark City (IE: Dark Mind, Reptilian Brain = Parasite Left Brain), is about a group known as the “Strangers” (Archons, Fallen Angels) who live in the underworld (hell, unconscious mind) and are able to keep their parasitic grip on its human hosts above ground through a giant head (Satan, Devil, Great Serpent).

They are said to be an ancient parasitic alien race that is on the verge of extinction who seem to have unfathomable mental powers.

The main character, John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) awakens in a hotel bathtub, suffering from amnesia (iGnosis/ignorance) and discovers the bloody horror scene of a corpse of what can be called a Satanically murdered (sacrificed to the demonic fungi) woman along with a bloody knife. He flees just as the Strangers show up to investigate the room.

The Strangers pursue Murdoch who eventually discovers that he has the Gnostic mind powers—which the Strangers also possess, and refer to as “tuning”—and he manages to use these powers to escape from them.

Murdoch meets Dr. Daniel Schreber (Kiefer Sutherland), who has the special Gnosis (knowledge) about the Strangers and he is also a bit crazy (schizophrenic). The mental capacity of Dr. Schreber gives him the inherent ability to see into their world. He explains to Murdoch that the Strangers are endangered extraterrestrial parasites who use humans as their hosts.

Dr. Schreber describes their abilities to alter physical reality like that of parasitic fungi/molds. The Doctors says in the film;

“They had mastered the ultimate technology – the ability to alter physical reality by will alone”.

They are telepathically connected to each other as “they share one group mind”.

They are most active at night, where the Strangers stop time and physically rearrange the city as well as changing people’s identities and memories. Having a hive mind, the Strangers have been experimenting with humans to analyze their individuality in the hopes that some insight might be revealed that would help their race survive.

It is interesting to note that the Strangers are most active when the people of the city are asleep or unconsciousness. The same thing can be said about parasitic organisms that reside in the human body who are most active at night to a global population is almost totally unaware of these interdimensional parasites that reside in their own bodies.

The crazy doctor writes about what he calls little men who are a few millimeters in height and are “invading his body because of his power.”

Schreber then says, “On some nights the souls finally dripped down onto my head, in a manner of speaking, in their hundreds if not thousands, as “little men”. I always warned them against approaching me, since I had become aware of the immensely increased power of attraction of my nerves.”

Another parasitic fungi/molds parallel is how the Strangers are able to manipulate the people of “Dark City” through this hive mind by working in unison to control the unconscious projections of its inhabitants. The Strangers have the ability to manipulate the unconscious humans and Dark City through a type of hive mind or collective conscious apparatus that is symbolized with a gigantic head with a clock inside.

This massive head is employed at night by the parasitic demons when the people of Dark City are sleeping AKA unconscious. This parasitic ability is observed during one scene when the Strangers conduct a tuning experiment with their collective will-power through the massive head, which opens to a clock at 9 p.m., which eventually turns to midnight.

Through this massive head, the Strangers create false memories (maya) for its unconscious slaves who are now controlled by the Strangers.

The main character, Murdoch’s task is to reawaken to who he truly is and activate his Gnostic abilities in order to escape the mind control grip of the Strangers (Archons) by exiting Dark City (Labirynth/Matrix) and defeating their leader AKA the Minotaur (Satan, Devil – AKA The Gigantic Head of the Fungi).

Apparently, Murdoch is some type of Gnostic Warrior who is able to Gno (know) the Strangers (Archons) and discover the Revelations that the city as an enormous space habitat (Fungi/Dark Matter) surrounded by a force field.

The Strangers bring the Gnostic Warrior, Murdoch to their home (fungal colony) beneath the city and force Dr. Schreber to imprint Murdoch with their collective memory (Fungi Gnosis), believing Murdoch to be the final result of their experiments. Schreber instead injects Murdoch with the memories (Gnosis) of his childhood where he learned who these Strangers were and how to defeat them using his genetic Gnostic abilities.

The Strangers use the bodies of dead people as vessels to move around. You can recognize them by their pale skin, and big bald heads. Their choice of clothing generally consists of a long black trench coat, black fedora, gloves, and boots, which give them a menacing appearance. Beneath their coats, they wear black leather suits of unique design made of different black leather pieces held together with a number of intricate straps, belts, and laces.

In the original form, they are bluish gelatinous tadpole-like creatures. Across the body section, they have a rounded mouth with lots of teeth and lots of tentacles.

They usually don’t use weapons, they can easily lift and throw a person several meters away with their telekinetic powers or make people sleep with telepathic ones. Their powers seldom fail them but if they do – for example, if for some inexplicable reason their opponent happens to be immune to them – they resort to somewhat cruder weapons, such as knives.

Even when inhabiting the human host, The Strangers have an aversion to water and light. When sprayed with water they burn and turn to dust, so if you mix these ingredients the nightmare starts to fade away.

Now that Murdoch has fully awakened to his illuminating Gnosis, he frees himself and goes to war with the Strangers, defeating their leader Mr. Book (Ian Richardson) in what can be described as a spiritual battle high above the city.

Murdoch defeats their leader Mr. Hand and informs him that the Strangers have been searching in the wrong place—the mind—to understand humanity. Murdoch turns the habitat toward the star (Jupiter) it had been turned away from, and the city experiences sunlight (illuminating phosphorus) for the first time.

The spiritual man has become the Messiah using the self-illuminating (alkalizing) power of the light (phosphorus) to kill off the remaining Strangers (fungi) and is liberated from Dark City.

Satan – The Royal Gnostic Masonic Cherub

Satan – The Royal Gnostic Masonic Cherub

We find in Ezekiel 11:22 that the “King of Tyre” is called a “cherub” and his home is located at the residence of Eden and the Mountian of God for it is said, “the king of Tyre is scornfully compared with one of these, and is assigned a residence in Eden and the mountain of God.”

As I mentioned in my previous article, Satan: Thou art the anointed royal cherub with Gnosis that covereth, Satan was a type of angel called a ‘cherub,” and he became a guardian of the Holy of Holies when he was “anointed as the cherub that covereth.” and a specific reference is made to Satan having been to a place known as the “Holy Mountain of God” and “walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.”

We also find that the King of Tyre is associated with Satan as he is described as the cherub in Eden mentioned in Ezekiel 28:13-14.  This king is said by religious scholars to be identified with specifically Ithobaal III (Latin Ithobalus, Hebrew Ethbaal) (reigned 591–573 BCE) who according to the list of kings of Tyre of Josephus was reigning contemporary with Ezekiel at the time of the first fall of Jerusalem.

As I explained before, most Jewish writers and Christian Fathers conceived the cherubim as angels with special knowledge, understanding, and full of wisdom ie: Gnosis. We know that God had appointed them as guardians and protectors (Templars) as representatives of the Divine Wisdom of the Lord in the higher heavens.

If we are to look to the history provided to us on the Kings of Tyre, we will discover that they were instrumental in helping build one of Freemasonry’s most prized symbolic structures – Solomon’s Temple. It is said in Samuel 5:11, “And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, also carpenters and masons who built David a house.”

Are Simon (Saint Peter), Satan, the Cherubim, the King of Tyre, Freemasons and the Catholic Church all connected with one another?

It is interesting that we know that Satan was, in fact, a real person and that he is also biblically associated with the order of angels known as the Cherubim and the King of Tyre. Masons are also associated with the Royal Gnostic we know of as Satan ie; Simon Magus (Saint Peter). Even more interesting is that in Ezekiel 28:12-19, the Fall of the King of Tyre who is driven from the Garden of Eden almost perfectly matches the description of the original fall of the First Gnostic, Simon Magus, AKA Satan.

The Fall of this Royal Masonic family can be plainly seen in Genesis iii. 24 by the cherubim placed before the garden of Eden, when Jehovah God “had driven out the man, He made to dwell on the east of Eden the cherubim, and the flame of a sword turning every way, to guard the way of the tree of life ”

It is clear that the “cherubim” signify a special race of beings or royal family/bloodline with “spiritual knowledge and wisdom ie: True Gnosis” in which they are anointed as “royal guards” with flaming swords who were placed before the garden of Eden which could not be approached except by good of love and charity; for this reason they are also said “to guard the way of the tree” which we can freely say today in the Masonic States of America were the “Guardians of Ancient Gnosticism.”

The Masonic Cherubim’s flaming swords “signifies the Word and truth combating against falsity and dispersing it, thus truth protecting” the way of “the tree of life” signifies True Gnosis from the Lord and the heavenly joy therefrom. From this, it is clear that the “two cherubim” represented guards of Mystical Christianity ie: Gnosis was not approached except by good of love and charity OR else!

In my article, King Hiram: The Masonic Chief Architect from Crete, I explain ancient historical and mythical connections with religion and masonry originating on the Holy Island of Crete. A place I have also identified as “Pergamos. Where Satan’s throne is.” – Revelation 2:12

The same island where one of Hiram’s First Masons: The Cunning Daedalus Invented the Masonic Working Tools. 33rd Degree Freemason, Albert Gallatin Mackey had said Daedalus executed the Cretan labyrinth, the reservoir near Megaris in Sicily, the Temple of Apollo at Capua, and the celebrated altar sculptured with lions on the Libyan coast.

Mackay also said he was the inventor of a number of the “Working Tools” used in the various degrees of Masonry such as the compasses and square, the plumb-line and the axe, most of the tools used in carpentry, and of glue and his nephew, Perdix, is the reputed inventor of the third Great Light in Masonry, the Compasses, which are dedicated to the Craft. (page 945)

As I have explained on numerous occasions, the Freemasons are the inheritors of the world’s Gnostic mysteries with their most prized symbols – the letter G signifying Gnosis, the Blazing Star (Pentagram), and Compasses and Square.

It is said in the Scripture of the Great Fall of the Masonic King Hiram of Tyre in Ezekiel 28:12-19;

“Mortal, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord GOD: You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, carnelian, chrysolite, and moonstone, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald; and worked in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created, they were prepared.

With an anointed cherub as guardian, I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the stones of fire. You were blameless in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you. In the abundance of your trade, you were filled with violence, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God (Holy Mountain), and the guardian cherub (Satan) drove you out from among the stones of fire.

Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you. By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade, you profaned your sanctuaries. So I brought out fire from within you; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all who saw you. All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever.”

As I said before, Simon Magus, a man we know as the First Gnostic and also Satan was also called the “anointed cherub” and made a guardian of the Holy of Holies. We learn from Saint Irenaeus that Simon’s consort Helen is a converted slave and prostitute from the Phoenician city of Tyre.

Helen was considered the Lost Sheep with no Gnosis of her royal soul, forced to wander through the centuries from vessel to vessel (including that of Helen of Troy), until she ended up at the brothel in Tyre where Simon had discovered her.

The same Holy Island of Crete where Hiram is the Widow’s Son and his Sovereign Masons are world-renown.

Knowing she was the One, he purchased her from her master and she became his Gnostic disciple (student) during his travels and teachings.

it was said that their reunion (Union of Soul/Opposites/Duality Become One) represented the beginning of the redemption of the world, and was the model for the process of salvation ie: Gnosis to Simon’s followers – the True Gnostics being that of the exoteric Catholic Church and esoteric Freemasons.

Pythagoreans Divide Man’s Astral Spirit Into Two Entities: Aerial and the Aethereal

Pythagoras once said, “the whole air is filled with souls” and he divided these spirits into the astral spirit of man after its exit from the body into two distinct entities: the “aerial” and the “aethereal vehicle.”

The word astral comes from the Latin astralis and astrum, meaning ‘star’.When I say that Pythagoras divided man’s ‘astral spirit,’ what I mean is the very alchemical makeup of our being which they believed came from the heavens.

As I had written previously, the origins of the word spirit comes to us the from Latin spiritus “breath, spirit,” from spirare “breathe.” It was an ancient belief for thousands of years that supernatural beings or things fly and float in the air and they could enter a person’s body simply by being in the company, touching and breathing in these beings or things.

The Symbol of the Nephilim is the Caduceus of Hermes

The God of commerce, the arts, magic, and modern commercial medicine was named Hermes. His symbol was the Caduceus Staff or Rod of Hermes and the fallen onesHermes which is a pole (rod or staff) with two serpents, or more appropriately, worms intertwined, and that reunite forming an arch at the top.

In the etymology of the Latin word caduceus, we find the secret meaning of the symbol of Hermes. The compound word caduceus is made of the words “cad and ceus.” The meaning of the Latin word cad is “to fall.” It is derived from the Greek kad and in Sanskrit cad, both meaning to fall, and also sometimes to die.  (more…)
