The Roman Philosopher Lucius Anneaus Seneca (4 BCE-65 CE) was perhaps the first to note the universal trend that growth is slow but ruin is rapid. I call this tendency the "Seneca Effect."

Drowning in Magic. How our Leaders are Possessed by the Same Demons they have Unleashed on us


Yesterday, for some reason, I was rethinking to Einstein's E=mc2 iconic formula. It is fascinating how popular it has become, and how everyone believes it, even people who are fully convinced that the lunar landings never took place. But what it does actually mean, well, it is another story, and not a simple one. For a curious coincidence, today I saw it shown in Simon Sheridan's blog with the caption "Dude, it’s totally magic." Perfectly correct. Sheridan is producing a series of extremely interesting posts on the magical foundations of our society. This one is correctly titled "Drowning on Magic"

Simon Sheridan at his best. Are our leaders possessed by the same demons they are unleashing against us? An excerpt from his post at 

"A key point to bear in mind is that the elites have been practising a form of Magic that had been accidentally discovered through Freudian psychology. But they don’t call it Magic. They call it marketing or public relations or spin or nudge units or whatever. The typical conspiracy theorist explanation is that they are all psychopaths who are using manipulative tactics to confuse and deceive the public. No doubt some of them are psychopaths. But if we think about this in Magical terms and we assume none of them know what they are doing when it comes to Magic, then another possibility opens up: they are possessed by their own Magic.
The robotic hypnosis of a Justin Trudeau with his ever-perfect, so serious, speech intonation or a Jacinda Ardern with her automatic “smile” or here in Victoria with our very own political terminator, Dictator Dan Andrews, betray all the hallmarks of Magical possession. Modern politics has become based almost entirely on Magic to the exclusion of reason and logic. Why else would politicians continually back projects that have no chance of working (like stopping a respiratory virus with an experimental vaccine). This would make them not just psychopaths, but imbeciles too.
Politics is now nothing more than a power game and Magic is power. But when you practice politics as nothing more than a power game, when you are willing to say anything, absolutely anything, to hold onto power, you must give up any last vestige of the Mental Consciousness, which is to say any last grasp you might have on reason, logic and law. That seems to me to be a pretty good description of where the leaders of most western nations are right now."


  1. An alternative picture of the elites is that there is a second layer of people possessed by magic, but there is a hard core of relatively few individuals who are hard nosed realists. The possessed are expendable and replaceable.

  2. It is apparent that Sheridan has zero clue about what psychopaths are. This ignorant statement shows it, among others: "they are possessed by their own Magic"

    Anyone who really has knowledge about psychopaths knows this is one of their main traits. Sheridan only offers MORE misdirection for the public...

    By FAR the most vital urgent and DEEP understanding everyone needs to gain is that a mafia network of manipulating PSYCHOPATHS are governing big businesses (eg official medicine), nations and the world -- the evidence is OVERWHELMING and TOTALLY IRREFUTABLE (see “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room”... ).

    Isn't it about time for anyone to wake up to the ULTIMATE DEPTH of the rabbit hole --- rather than remain blissfully willfully ignorant and play victim like a little child?

    And psychopaths are typically NOT how Hollywood propaganda movies have showcased them. And therefore one better RE-learns what a psychopath REALLY is.

    But global rulership by psychopaths is only ONE part of the equation that makes up the destructive human condition as the article explains because there are TWO pink elephants in the room... and they're MARRIED (see cited source above).

  3. Being possessed by magic can actually be understood in a positive way. When you come to think of it, aren't Nature and the Universe simply magical in their workings? Look at the aurora borealis, or the veins on a leaf, or simply that marvelous piece of machinery that is your body. Which of these isn't a pure miracle? We may think we've 'explained' them all, through something called 'science'. Have we, really? What have we really 'explained'? Ultimately, the world around us remains as mysterious and wonderful as ever. As Einstein said, "The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. He to whom this experience is a stranger is as good as dead."

    The whole trouble is that, thanks to modern 'science', which tries so hard to reduce everything to a 'nothing but', we've numbed ourselves to this sense of wonder. So much so, that we need to constantly consume all sorts of things to relieve ourselves of that sense of numbness -- hence our consumer culture. And where it's leading us all, I'm sure I won't have to say.

    I'm not saying reason and logic have no valid place in our world. They have a place -- a very important one. The trouble is that they -- and our sense of the miraculous -- have been misdirected. Reason and logic have been used to reduce everything to a 'nothing but', while our sense of the miraculous has been abused by those in power -- themselves also deluded -- lulling us into the delusion that a miracle will save us all, or that everything is actually fine etc.

    My two cents.

  4. You should check the famous quote of Carl Sagan is a good discretion of the situation.
    “I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time -- when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness...

    The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance”
