Member Skype #26 – Gematria & Language (8-Jul-2018)

What is 'gematria'? Why do some promoters of the concept seem to cherry-pick their data? Where did the English language come from? Is the average person today largely 'symbol-illiterate' and, if so, what can or should be done about it?

Joining me to discuss these questions and more was an all-star cast of interlocutors, including yet another MSC debutante -- who apparently knows a thing or two about communication himself...

JLB Member Skype #25 – Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media (1-Jul-2018)

What is the 'trivium' and how might it be useful to those seeking the 'truth'? Who is Jan Irvin and why does he seem to generate so much controversy and drama? Where do we source our information about the (alleged) casualty figures of 'wars'? At the end of the day, why can't we all just get along?

One of the ACT realm's more polarising figures declined the invitation to join us to discuss his work. As you'll hear for yourself, an unexpected visitor and MSC debutante more than made up for Irvin's absence...

JLB Member Skype #24 – The Sync Books (24-Jun-2018)

What is 'Sync' and why should anybody care?

Who gets to decide what is and isn't a so-called 'coincidence'? Tarot cards, Aleister Crowley, 'Ancient Egypt': what do these things have in common? How long ago did the planning for 9/11 begin? Ultimately, does any of this really matter?

JLB Member Skype #23 – The Number 23 (17-Jun-2018)

What qualifies as superstition? Where does fantasy end and reality begin? Who can be considered an actor, and when is the performance over? If things are as absurd as they sometimes seem, then why would we even bother?

An all-star ensemble cast of interlocutors joined me to discuss these questions and more, while taking a look at the underrated Jim Carrey 'psychological thriller' The Number 23.

JLB Member Skype #22 – Fakeologist (10-Jun-2018)

What really happened on 9/11, and what was the motivation or intent of those who were responsible for it? Are the wars on our telescreens 'real'? How about the evil villains like Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden: are these 'real' people, or just characters in a made-for-TV narrative? Just how far does media fakery go?

JLB Member Skype #21 – Aleister Crowley & Magick (3-Jun-2018)

Who was Aleister Crowley? Was his 'magick' as evil or nefarious as some people seem to believe? How much influence did his work have upon pop culture throughout the twentieth century? What is the connection between Thelema and 9/11? Is there a little bit of Crowley in all of us?

JLB Member Skype #20 – The Prestige (27-May-2018)

What is the difference between 'magic' and deception? If we look at a photo from our 'past', who are we looking at, and why? Is it mere coincidence that David Bowie was cast to play Nikola Tesla in this film? Why do some of us feel a compulsion to break other people's illusions?

JLB Member Skype #19 – George Orwell’s 1984 (20-May-2018)

Is 1984 really set in the future/past, or is it a story about the eternal present? Is there an objective truth, an immutable reality outside of the mind? To what was Orwell referring when he spoke about fake bombs and fake wars? Do we have any reason to fear Big Brother?

JLB Member Skype #18 – Money & Banking (13-May-2018)

Where does money come from? What does the term 'money' even mean? Most of us have heard the story about how 'fractional reserve banking' began, but is that story based on actual evidence? Why is there an 'eye of providence' on the US one dollar bill? And why haven't I moved to Estonia already?
