Most people I have met in my life act like they are not self aware or less conscious of their world. They act like drones. They go to work, eat, sleep, get drunk, and have sex. Rinse repeat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. There is more to life, more to the world. I try to get people to think and wonder about ideas and the world around them.
On October 25, coincidentally also the day of my birth, I plan on making an update and also plan going into some of the metaphysics of my hypothesis: the Logos, the Singularity, Recycling (not the green kind), Synchronicity, something one may call the Cosmic Tree, and maybe even some speculation on these "Elders".

There are different species right here in the deepest of our waters and they have been here for a very very long time.
Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson who suggested that aliens could remain undetected by building their bases beneath the world’s oceans.
Dr. Sanderson found that by actual count, over 50 percent of the UFO sightings had occurred over, coming from, or plunging into or coming out of water.

Yes, Hitler was a Theosophist. There really are many racial issues in Blavatskys' writings, she writes of these root races that have spiritual basis.
Let me clear this: I'm in no way a cult freak. I avoid any weird groups like a plague, 'cause I don't want to deal with nutcases. And believe, this field has some really messed up people.
Blavatsky lied a lot. She just made up stuff. Her writings are magical, astralic almost. You can't read them from word to word, it will just end up in confusion. Her teachings are a kinda like a path to follow. They are without a doubt some of most important occult texts written in the west, possibly ever.
It doesn't surprise me at all that Vallee end up studying UFOs. This phenomenon is completely linked to "spiritual" things.

as your small sections pointing out Jung & Campbell touched upon...
"A purely psychological explanation is ruled out... the discs show signs of intelligent guidance, by quasi-human pilots..." ("Dr. Carl Jung on Unidentified Flying Objects," Flying Saucer Review, Vol. 1, No. 2, 1955.)
Dr. Carl Gustav Jung, Pioneer of psychiatry, 1954

This planet, the environment, and the species on it are nothing but dust. True enlightenment is outside the prison of the cave, not inside of it with the shadows. Trying to change the cave doesn't matter. The cave is still a cave.
Originally posted by MikeboydUSThe entire foundation of western esotericism lay upon the idea of enlightenment, reaching a state of tabula rasa and becoming one with the Absolute. Every single mystery school, neoplatonist, gnostic, hermeticist, and kabbalist in antiquity knew this. Its the Magnum Opus, the Great Work to become one with the Infinite.
Ultimately the only thing that mattered was the Infinite not this finite cosmos of illusion. Its not just in the West, the same concepts can be found in the East.
