The Final Frontier: Human Consciousness

A peculiar and persistent enigma has haunted our rational and reasonable world of intellectual certainty since the end of the Second World War. In fact this pervasive enigma has captured the imagination of the mass population world-wide for all the decades since that tumultuous conflict. Yet the ubiquitous mystery of Unidentified Flying Objects: UFOS, still eludes any definitive and conclusive scientific solution.

It naturally remains quite reasonable that a significant portion of these sighting reports are likely test flights of exotic air-foil designs performed by our national defense agencies, but a much larger number of anomalous balls and blobs of light dancing about our skies both day and night simply defy any rational explanation or understanding—almost as if by deliberate intention.

And though these lights are generally assumed to be evidence of extraterrestrial visitation, might they not be evidence of a ‘glitch’ in the very fabric of our well-ordered perception of ‘reality’ itself?

Science and technology today dominate center stage in defining contemporary Western civilization’s materialistic, world-view perception. We hurl rockets, satellites, robotic probes and radio transmissions into space to expand the boundaries of intellectual understanding. And we utterly rely on these mechanical instrumentalities to give exclusive definition to the five-sense world- reality we perceive.

And yet, while these machines reach for the mysteries of outer space, have we perhaps overlooked an even deeper mystery of ‘inner-space’; the mystery of how the human mind actually perceives 3-dimensional ‘reality’ in the first place? Moreover, how well do we humans truly understand our mind’s function of Cognition: the process by which we recognize the world around us?

Does the unfathomable UFO enigma suggest that our accepted consensual ‘reality’ is not as REAL as we’ve been led to believe?

And rather than external dependence on clumsy machines, could it be that the most sophisticated instrument for exploring infinite universal realms is our own conscious awareness?

“We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless…

The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on Earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us…

We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we trap ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime…

The world that we perceive though, is an illusion. It was created by a description that was told to us since the moment we were born…

Our art as ordinary people is that we know how to hold the image of what we are looking at.” [Carlos Castaneda]

The ‘REAL’ real…

The world of so-called ‘everyday life’ is not real but consists of an endless flow of perceptual interpretations which humans have learned to share in common.

The mind was designed to manifest what it focuses on.

The brain/mind is programed to assemble or translate light vibrations or codes of sound, color and shape into a 3-dimensional virtual reality we call… ‘life’.

But if our world is but an illusion, a dream, how do we account for the horrific nightmares that habitually plague this ‘illusion’?


Origin of the Matrix

“And God said, let there be light…  And there was light…

Infinite Oneness, a conscious realm of unexpressed pure potential—limitless, formless thought—decided to experience itself subjectively. And from this creative thought-impulse a spinning atom appeared in the void.

This spinning ‘thought-atom’ radiated energy—light energy. In turn this atom could reproduce itself in infinite numbers ultimately becoming the fundamental building blocks of all material creation, providing Infinite Oneness an incalculable range of creative expression.

…and from this light God created all things.”

Within this expanse of vibrating ‘light’ creation Oneness willed into existence ‘animated’ creatures imbued with ‘awareness’ through which Oneness could experience all the myriad diversity of its own Creation.

“We are energetic probes created by the universe, and it’s because we are possessors of energy that has awareness that we are the means by which the universe becomes aware of itself.”

[Carlos Castaneda]

Fundamentally humans are ‘thought-creating’ beings living in a ‘Thought-Universe’. We create everything in our world out of thought.

The more human beings focus their awareness on something specific the more certain it will actually manifest.

Over time however this ‘awareness’ became so profoundly identified with this illusory world of material creation that it lost sentient connection with its original ‘parent’ Oneness. Yet its ability to manifest focused thought was no less potent.


Modern Quantum Physics is just beginning to confirm what was common knowledge to ancient mystics--that our collective virtual reality experience manifests from an ocean of universal thought energy that they called ‘Ether’.

In fact there are striking similarities to be found in the esoteric traditions of both ancient Egyptian and Mexican mystery schools as well. After centuries of diligent study using sacred medicinal plants the seers of ancient Central America unraveled the secrets of conscious reality.

 UCLA anthropologist Carlos Castaneda claims an encounter with Yaqui Indian shaman, Don Juan Matus in 1960, launched his study of the esoteric intricacies of these ancient traditions. In turn, Don Juan became mentor to Castaneda who documented his years of personal apprenticeship in a series of best-selling books that reveal striking insights of into universal cosmology that parallel modern, quantum physics discoveries.


Don Juan Matus explained to Castaneda that our cognition requires the interpretation of sensory data. He said that the universe is composed of an infinite number of energy fields that exist in the universe as luminous filaments. These luminous filaments act on man as an organism, the response of the organism is to interpret these energy fields as sensory data.

The mind’s interpretation of that sensory data becomes our cognitive system; or simply stated …our daily reality.

However, in Castaneda’s book “Magical Passes” Don Juan cautioned, “Human beings are on a journey of awareness that has momentarily been interrupted by EXTRANEOUS FORCES.”

Sorcerer Don Juan also revealed that some of these luminous filaments bundle into awareness that can manifest as organic creatures such as humans and animals or can remain bundled simply as inorganic awareness in an etheric realm parallel to that of organic creatures. As such, the ancient seers fully understood that the universal, etheric realm was vastly inhabited. And at least some of the entities that coexist with our reality--assumed by our modern materialistic culture to be remote extraterrestrials--are in fact hyper-dimensional entities who are no more remote than our own living rooms—or even our own MINDS.


William C. Chittick, author of “The Sufi Path of Knowledge” warns that modern Western materialistic culture is dangerously ignorant of hostile hyper-dimensional entities…

“Nowadays most people interested in the spirituality of the East desire the “experience”, though they may call what they are after intimate communion with God…

…Those familiar with the standard norms of spiritual experience set down by disciplined paths like Sufism are usually appalled by the way Westerners seize upon any apparition from the domain outside of normal consciousness as a manifestation of the “spiritual”…

…In fact, there are innumerable realms in the unseen world, some of them far more DANGEROUS than the worst jungles of the visible world.”

And shamanic traditions in different parts of the world speak of predatory discarnate entities in their own way.

What Tibetan mystics called “Tulpas” were not unlike the Djinn”--demonic entities of Muslim lore that manifested out of smoke…

And the ‘succubi’ and ‘incubi’ of the Middle-Ages were virtually identical to inorganic entities called “Flyers” by Central American mystics. Upon accessing our cognitive processes these shape-shifting amorphous, hyper-dimensional entities can subliminally masquerade as any form they choose be it ‘aliens’, ‘reptilians’, ‘djinn’, ‘angels’ or ‘demons’; while essentially having no specific form of their own nor requiring one.

Considering that the ‘virtual reality’ we perceive as our daily lives is the product of a broadcast signal interpreted by our ‘brain-receivers’, we can begin to understand how ‘inorganic’ or non-physical hyper-dimensional entities can ‘hack’ that signal for nefarious purposes.

Morpheus: “Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about? 
Neo: The Matrix. 
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is? 
Neo: Yes. 
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work... when you go to church... when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. 
Neo: What truth? 
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind. 


Carlos Castaneda’s shaman mentor, Don Juan, cautioned that a specific variety of inorganic entities identified by ancient Mexican Seers as “Flyers” have inserted a “foreign installation” into our cognitive processes. In his book “The Active Side of Infinity” Castaneda explains…

“We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master…

…It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so… Indeed we are held prisoner!

…They took us over because we are food to them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance.”

As hyper dimensional etheric entities the ‘predators’ can access the human brain’s fundamental interpretation process that translates the soft-ware codes of this entire virtual-reality life experience. They high-jacked reality by knowing the ‘game-cheats’ of creation; the language codes of the matrix ‘universe’ thus manipulating the way we perceive our holographic life experience in a way that would serve only their purposes.

The signal interference projected by these predatory entities captures human awareness and holds it to a particular focus of their engineering. Our focused attention, in turn, creates the daily reality we experience. Thereby humanity is tricked into perpetually manifesting a reality of ‘alien’ invention—a mental prison or cattle pen if you will, where the predator’s food source is readily available.

“In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged a stupendous maneuver—stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist; a horrendous maneuver from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind…

The predators’ mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with fear of being discovered any minute now. Through the mind, which is after all their mind, the predators inject into the lives of human beings whatever is convenient for them.”

Don Juan further explained that, “Man has a glowing coat of awareness which the predator eats, leaving just the bare minimum of "consciousness stuff" for man to remain physically alive. The predator "milks" man through arranging for constant trouble and crisis and senseless preoccupation, so as to generate flashes of awareness that it then proceeds to eat.”

Arrival of the “FLYERS”

Much like the alien ‘predator’ Castaneda also referred to as the “Flyer”, another account from Anthony Peake’s book, “The Infinite Mindfield” tells how during the early 1960s anthropologist Michael Harner visited the Peruvian Amazon where he studied the culture of the Conibo Indians.

The Conibo advised that for Harner to fully understand their tribe’s worldview he would need to drink their powerful psycho-active brew, ‘ayahuasca’.  Harner consented and his visionary experience witnessed the first arrival of the ‘flyers’

“I saw an ocean, barren land, and a bright blue sky. Then black specks dropped from the sky by the hundreds and landed in front of me on the barren landscape. I could see that the ‘specks’ were actually large shiny black creatures with stubby pterodactyl-like wings and huge whale-like bodies.

They were fleeing from something out in space. They had come to the planet Earth to escape their enemy. The creatures then showed me how they created life on the planet in order to hide within the multitudinous forms and thus disguise their presence.

I learned that the dragon-like creatures were thus inside of all forms of life, including man. They were the true masters of humanity and the entire planet. We humans were but the receptacles and servants of these creatures. For this reason they could speak to me from within myself.”      


The predators’ hypnotic art is to keep human awareness focused exclusively into our five-sense perceptions; to convince our cognitive processes that three dimensional reality is utterly real and ALL that exists; to keep our minds perpetually distracted and preoccupied with all this world’s material inducements, money, entertainment, sports, sexuality, politics, war and religion.

Vast secret society networks also serve this seductive manipulation promising hollow external fulfillments of fame, wealth, power and happiness that people will despair to achieve.  

Moreover, through age-old religious doctrines the alien predators have implanted a general expectation of impending apocalyptic catastrophe; another insidious seduction that captures the focused attention of the collective psyche. And unless redirected, humans themselves—not some vengeful god--will unwittingly manifest global apocalypse as their collective experience; a clever ruse designed to serve up an exquisite banquet of human agony and terror for a vast predators’ feast.

Remember, there is NO out-there out there, the physical reality we think we perceive is all happening inside our brains. The universe is inside us. The universe is there only when we wish to observe it. But thanks to the predators’ signal interference we experience their version of this ‘virtual-reality’…

Castaneda’s Mentor Don Juan Reminds us…

“I have said before about our two minds – one is our TRUE mind, the product of all our life experiences, the one that rarely speaks because it has been defeated and relegated to obscurity…

…Every one of us has two minds, one is totally ours and it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose. The other is a “FOREIGN INSTALLATION”. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubt, hopelessness.”


The mystics of ancient Egypt used medicinal plants such as the Nile’s blue lotus to access expanded realms of consciousness. Over time they too recognized the influence of certain inorganic beings.

Author John Lash describes in his book “Not in His Image” a striking parallel between the “Flyers” discovered by ancient Mexican sorcerers and “Archons” described by first century Christian Gnostics.

 “Archons are an alien force that intrudes subliminally upon the human mind and deviates our intelligence away from its proper and sane applications. …They make us play out our inhumane behavior to weird and violent extremes--Archons are psycho-spiritual PARASITES.”

Gnostics, who directed the Mystery Schools of the Near East in antiquity, taught that the true intellect of human beings is part of the cosmic intelligence that pervades nature, but due to the intrusion of the Archons, this “native mind” or "native genius" can be subverted and even occupied by another mind. They warned that Archons invade the human psyche, they intrude mentally and psychologically…

“Gnostics taught that these entities envy us and feed on our fear. Above all they attempt to keep us from claiming and evolving our INNER LIGHT, the gift of divine intelligence within.”


Carlos Castaneda’s mentor, Don Juan, reassured that humanity’s dilemma was not altogether hopeless. His skills as a sorcerer revealed that human beings were “…travelers in the dark sea of awareness and this Earth was but a station on their journey.”

He said that, “human beings were caught in a sort of eddy—a current that went in circles giving the impression of moving while they were, in essence, stationary. He maintained that sorcerers were the only opponents to whatever force kept human beings prisoners, and by means of their discipline sorcerers broke loose from its grip and continued their journey of awareness.”

Don Juan further revealed the stupendous potential that authentic human awareness possesses…  

“The flyers are [inorganic beings that are] an essential part of the universe, and they must be taken as what they really are--awesome, monstrous. They are the means by which the universe tests us.

We are energetic probes created by the universe, and it’s because we are possessors of energy that has awareness that we are the means by which the universe becomes aware of itself.

Sorcerers called [the predator’s] mind, ‘the foreign installation’, which exists in you and in every other human being.”

The flyers are the implacable challengers. They cannot be taken as anything else. If we succeed in doing that, the universe allows us to continue.” 

Carlos Castaneda’s critics claim the ‘Don Juan’ character, who dominates his many books, is actually fictional. And it may well be that Castaneda created Don Juan as a composite character. But considering alternate research into shamanic traditions world-wide by anthropologists like Michael Harner, Castaneda’s written works appear to be a generally consistent compendium of extraordinary knowledge that accurately describes levels of awareness and other dimensions of reality far beyond western civilization’s accepted cognitive paradigms.

Alternate realities also confirmed by current medical research into the mysterious brain chemical DMT: dimethyltryptamine.

Upon their discovery of the inorganic entities that manipulate our psychic realms the ancient Central American Toltec shaman refused to meekly submit as food for predators; “…to honor agreements in which they did not participate.”

They recognized the only alternative to liberation was to adopt a warrior’s unbending attitude of mental discipline to recognize and disconnect from the false reality implanted by the flyers. By doing so they accessed innumerable worlds beyond description; where they glimpsed the stupendous potentials of TRUE human awareness—to boldly go where few men have gone before…

 “The Secret” documentary tells us that the ‘law of attraction’ is the key to manifesting our desired reality. I would suggest instead that the ‘law of attention’ is what manifests our reality. “We hold the images of the world with our attention.”

However, ‘a warrior’ recognizes the world images we are holding are an ‘alien’ insertion of clamoring, seductive distractions; a world that only serves unseen masters. Thereby a warrior makes a deliberate effort to protect his awareness by disconnecting from this “foreign installation”—to be in the world but not of it.

And yet the play goes on. We scarcely realize the mundane world of everyday life is a holodeck performance where universal consciousness itself plays all the parts—villains and heroes—our physical bodies merely provide ‘avatar’ vehicles for prime creator to experience all the many sensory intricacies that this virtual reality provides.

Through the lens of individual awareness, both organic and inorganic, universal consciousness realizes the incalculable diversity of its own infinite creation—the ultimate frontier! 



David Icke’s Ayahuasca Ceremony: Tales from the Time-Loop…

In order to glimpse the into expanded awareness gained from such ancient shamanic traditions noted author, lecturer and researcher David Icke traveled to Brazil in 2003 where he was invited to participate in an ‘Ayahuasca’ ceremony; ‘Ayahuasca’ being a traditional sacred brew commonly known to various South American tribes for inducing states of ‘awareness’ beyond those of ‘normal’ cognitive perceptions.

Made from plants known as ‘spirit vines’, Ayahuasca contains high levels of Dimethytryptamine; a brain enzyme naturally found in the human Pineal gland. DMT is a mysterious brain chemical that seems to open gateways to alternate realities. And David Icke’s Ayahuasca experience demonstrated precisely that—a five-hour, first-hand excursion into the secrets of the Matrix. dimethyltryptamine

Icke subsequently revealed these secrets in his extraordinary book, Tales from the Time-Loop


In his altered Ayahuasca state the “powerful female voice” explained to David Icke that…

“…The whole ‘five-sense’ reality is a holographic illusion that only exists in a ‘solid’ form because the human mind/brain makes it appear that way. The 3-D world of landscapes, seas, buildings and human bodies, only exist in that form when we look at it. Otherwise it is a mass of vibrational fields and codes…

What we perceive to be a ‘solid’ world only exists because we believe it does. This ‘world’ is not ‘out there’, it is ‘in here’—our minds…

…So whatever our mind/brain is conditioned to see or not see, it will. When we think we are in a conscious state going about our lives, we are, in fact, experiencing a dream every bit as much as those we experience in sleep. It’s just a different dream.”

          “…The five sense world that we daily experience is a TIME-LOOP that goes around and around basically repeating the same sequence in theme if not in detail. What we call the ‘future’ eventually becomes the ‘past’ and spins around to repeat the ‘present’ over and over.”

“…The ‘Matrix’ is a vortex, like a whirlpool in a river, with the Time-Loop—our five-sense reality—in the densest part of the spiral. Think of the Matrix as a whirlpool and the Infinite Oneness as the river. The Matrix is still the river, the Infinite One, but, like a whirlpool or eddy, it is operating in its own little world to its own agenda…

…The Matrix has forgotten that it is the Infinite—the whirlpool has forgotten that it is the river.”

The MATRIX ‘Time’ Illusion

David Icke’s Ayahuasca ‘voice’ revealed that the illusion of linear time was a key component of the Matrix deception.

“The very fact that we believe in time is confirmation of the illusion that we take to be ‘real’. Time does not exist, except in our minds. What we call time is the illusion of passing through something…

‘Past’ and ‘future’ are illusions designed to entrap us in disconnection. They are different realities happening at the same moment, in the same infinite NOW. The apparent sequence of one era following another in passing ‘time’ is an illusion of the Time-Loop.”

“The Time-Loop is encased within a ‘matrix’ of non-physical levels that have lost contact with Infinite Oneness. The ‘non-physical’ levels are the dimensions to which most ‘human’ consciousness returns after a ‘life’ in the five-sense realm at the moment we call ‘death’.

It is free of the physical body, but it is STILL caught in the Matrix!”


The ‘Five-Sense’ illusion within the Time-Loop was identified as the ‘power station’ that feeds the entire MATRIX system…

The Matrix originated as nothing more than a thought projection that eventually “…took on a life of its own when it gained access to an energy source independent of that which was projecting it [Infinite Oneness].

The energy source was FEAR. The Matrix—the projected reality of subconscious mind—absorbed the energy of fear generated particularly within the ‘five-sense’ time loop and took on a life and agenda of its own.

That agenda was to generate as much fear as possible to empower itself even further. The Matrix became a Frankenstein. The created or projected thought field had accessed an energy source to become a creator and projector of its own illusory reality.”

Even what we perceive as the ‘Natural World’ is also part of the matrix illusion; “…another holographic projection that was only ‘real’ because we were conditioned to believe it was. The ‘laws’ of the natural world reflected the state of being of its creator, the Matrix entity; a state of fear and desperation to survive.”

The Matrix is a self-aware, self-regulating system ensuring its own survival by “…generating the events necessary to produce the fear that empowered it. Humans were indeed ‘batteries’ or power stations for the Matrix and we were providing the power to maintain our own prison…”


David Icke’s ayahuasca experience further revealed that the so-called alien ‘Reptilians’ did exist “…but they were holographic thought projections of the Matrix very much like the agents or ‘sentient programs’ that manipulate in the Matrix movies.

Either way, the reptilians and other projected agents, [such as aliens, demons, djinn or archons] of the Matrix were not ‘real’ in consciousness terms; they were projections, thought fields or highly sophisticated software programs.”

When these inorganic entities “…absorbed human fear they were absorbing it for the Matrix itself because they are projections of the Matrix. But they were not aware of this. Indeed, the Reptilians or other ‘demonic entities’, as well as the Illuminati hierarchy were not aware that their ultimate master was really--the Matrix itself.”


Upon physical ‘death’ the consciousness that leaves the body does not automatically reconnect with the ‘Infinite’. Instead it simply gets shunted off to “…other ‘non-physical’ dimensions of the Matrix. Consciousness may have withdrawn from the Time-Loop but it was still in the flytrap, albeit a less dense expression of it.

Reincarnation was the cycle of consciousness moving in and out of the Time Loop from other levels of the Matrix. The concept of reincarnation is another creation of the Matrix entity to hold consciousness in a cycle of servitude while believing it is ‘evolving’ through experience in line with ‘New Age’ belief…

…Because consciousness in the Matrix was caught in a cycle of moving in and out of the Time Loop through reincarnation, they were not only conditioned by the beliefs of one physical lifetime, they were conditioned by endless experiences in the Time loop and between these physical excursions they were in another form of illusory state.

So they were already conditioned even as they returned to the Time Loop reality for still more conditioning. That is why humanity dropped into the conditioned, servile state so easily. They had been there many times before.”

So called ‘New Age’ belief has accepted that “…the physical realm was only one dimension of existence and there were many more beyond the walls of human senses… but what was not understood is that these other vibrating dimensions were still levels of the Matrix. They provided the constant supply of consciousness to inhabit the Time Loop and generate the fear necessary to keep the ‘Matrix’ alive.”

“The idea of Karma was a Matrix manipulation to indoctrinate beliefs in the ‘passage of time’.”

And just as we perceive the false cycle of day and night, “…Astrology was a creation of the Matrix to manipulate people to identify still more powerfully with their illusory personality.”

Demise of the MATRIX

At the conclusion of his five hour ayahuasca session David Icke was assured by the ‘voice’ that “…The Matrix and particularly the five-sense Time-Loop had become so vibrationally dense, and the imprisoned consciousness so lost in the illusion that the Infinite One was intervening in the ‘game’.

Control of the Matrix and the time loop were in the process of being dismantled so that entrapped consciousness could return home to conscious reconnection with the Infinite…

…The process of removing the Matrix was well advanced. Expressions of the Infinite had entered the Matrix especially at its densest level, the Time Loop, to anchor the energy that would break up the fear vibration that held it together.

These expressions of the Infinite taking human form had not been aware of their role for most of their ‘physical’ lives and many still were not. This was because they had to experience the emotional and mental states that held humanity in disconnected servitude and in doing so attune themselves to the low vibrational frequencies of these states of being. When this was done the Infinite could feed its energy of Oneness and balance through such ‘people’ and transform those mental and emotional frequencies on which the Matrix and Time loop depend…

…The transformation of entrapped consciousness from the illusion of disconnected limitation to reconnected infinity is now happening. We are seeing the last desperate death throes of Matrix control. …The reason there was such an effort underway to imprison humanity even further in the fast emerging global fascist state or New World Order was a desperate attempt to hold the game together and stop the awakening people…


…the power and speed of the change will become ever more profound and obvious. What you are seeing is the last desperate attempt of the matrix to stop the inevitable, that’s all. The transformation from prison to paradise is a done-deal!”

Remember: “If it vibrates, it is ILLUSION. The infinite does NOT vibrate; it is the harmony and Oneness of all. Only Illusion vibrates—that which is created by the imagination and delusion of the mind.”
