Ahriman controls the Illuminati.
That vile beast who seeks to suck the spirit from this world, and trap us all in bodies of dead, mechanical matter. Ahriman is the adversary -- the
Satan of our age -- and the architect of modernity. It is he who has championed a cult of solely physical science, and of capitalist power-mongering.
He hopes to turn the world into a closed system, sans illumination, sans creativity, sans spirituality, that he can control completely.
The first step in esoteric study -- any form of study, really -- is to free oneself of Ahriman's influence. One need only examine the pool of popular
opinion on the metaphysical to see how insidious his efforts are. Take the prevalence of reductive materialism in the scientific world today as an
example (I paraphrase, here, the works of that great philosopher Nagel):
1 -- It appears to common sense that we have a mind and a body that are equally fundamental.
2 -- We develop physics, and later chemistry and biology, the 'hard' or physical sciences, to understand the world of matter.
3 -- Seeing the mystery of consciousness, we turn our physical sciences towards this non-physical problem.
4 -- Unsurprisingly, the physical sciences have no way to interact with a non-physical consciousness.
5 -- We conclude that 'consciousness' and 'mind' are simply 'ghosts in the machine'. And ghosts, also being undiscovered, don't exist.
6 -- We reduce the unknown quantity of mind and consciousness to the known quantity of the physical.
With these 6 simple steps, we brush aside all question of any non-physical reality: you are your brain, there is no such thing as consciousness, there
are no gods or spirits, all that exists is matter. Because matter is the only thing we can see and measure.
And Ahriman laughs in the void.
He laughs because this is patently false. Thomas Nagel was recently crucified for claiming that the physical sciences are a poor tool to study the
possibility of non-physical consciousness. It's like trying to dress Barbie in spanners -- totally ill-suited to the task. How could it be suited to
the task? We don't expect Art to be able to measure a length of wood. We shouldn't expect physics to be able to detect a soul.
And even in this Ahrimanic world, the cutting edge of science disputes the claims made by these hard materialists -- Quantum theory, simulation
theory, multiple worlds, the universe as information rather than matter; all these things and more are brushed silently aside by the proponents of a
world of dead matter. The only way to accept their beliefs is to end science shortly after Newton and Darwin.
Ahriman seeks to suck the life not only from scientific enquiry, but from moral thought, philosophical speculation, economic freedom and physical
When I first started to master the mysterious energies of the body and mind with Qi gong in my youth, it was akin to being opened like the petals of a
flower. Mental and physical faculties I was barely aware of began to connect with reality, and I saw that the world was a much bigger, much more
magical place than I had ever dreamed. Colours exploded into vibrancy on the canvas of my mind. My body pulsed with the rhythm of existence, attuning
itself to nature.
Years later, when I was initiated into the Nath Sampradeya (a Hindu tantric sect of the Vama Marga) I once more stripped away the detritus of
conditioning that Ahriman conspires to foist upon us.
Complex human systems pass down software of shame, powerlessness, guilt and conformity from generation to generation. And we are all made small by
The first step on any path has to be to slough off that conditioning, like the great snake ouroboros shedding unwanted skin.

The gentleman who wrote it is working with the material of Rudolph Steiner, a great sage of the Germanic people.
Ultimately, the illuminati are pawns too -- just pawns in a better position. But the goal of all seekers after truth is to become something more than
a pawn, to grasp out for personal power and become something bordering on deity; to become free.
