Pernicious Evil & The Black Swan

I remember those carefree summer days of childhood along the shores of Birch Lake in Northern Wisconsin. Catching frogs for bait to fish for Walleye & Northern Pike;  life seemed pretty straight forward and uncomplicated back then, the way it’s supposed to be for children.  Except for the inevitability of school, and household chores my time was pretty much my own.   Yet even as I busied myself with those things important to a youngster I had in the back of my mind just a smattering of an idea of how growing up would change things.  You would have to be blind & deaf to not know that the responsibilities of adulthood were a constant source of stress in that house.  So it was that I approached the years of adulthood with reservations and no small degree of reluctance.

The nearer I got to that age when I’d be expected to “put away childish things” the more misgivings I developed as I came into a clearer picture of what it was about adulthood that took such a heavy toll on my parents.  Between school and church it seemed we had a clear enough blueprint given to us for how humans should conduct themselves on this beautiful blue-green gem of a planet….trouble was, nobody was playing by those rules.  As near as I could figure out at the time, following that blueprint just set us up as fast food for those who played by their own set of rules.  I tried not to give it too much thought back then because well, hunting for dinosaur bones was just way more important; and besides, I was certain that the grownups would have everything fixed before I turned 20.

As the years piled up on me I couldn’t help but notice that the closer I got to adulthood, the worse shape the world seemed to be in.  There were a few moments of  hopeful anticipation when someone showed real signs of bringing about some much needed change in this society and the world; but the ensuing, inevitable assassinations also killed such hopeful notions.  The military-industrial-complex that Ike tried to warn us about was just getting warmed up about the time I received my draft notice.  It came as a death knell for the dreams of a generation of young people just like me.  Motivated by Dad’s war stories and the news coverage in Vietnam I took my narrow ass down to the Navy recruiter and signed up.  If I was going to have to go to war, I figured there was no earthly reason I shouldn’t have a dry bed & warm food.  About the only thing I found that was “as advertised” was the old saying, join the Navy & see the world.  Now I didn’t get to see the entire world, but the parts I did see bestowed upon me a far greater education than any school can provide.  I got to see how other people in other lands live, I got to see their culture, architecture and society.  What I saw the most of was their poverty and oppression…I got to see outside the bubble of “the American dream” for the first time.

I also saw no earthly reason why I couldn’t make the most of it and have some fun along the way.  On a three day stop-over for liberty in Hong Kong I coerced two buddies to accompany me (in civilian clothes) to the Kowloon side (which is communist mainland China;) for some sightseeing and culture.  Everything went fine the whole day, right up until we hit the peoples republic museum.  On the far wall was a beautiful, huge painting of chairman Mao surrounded by many other notables.  I was taken by how very life-like the painting was, so I snapped a couple photos.  How was I to know that not only is photographing people frowned upon in some oriental cultures, but taking pictures was actually against the law in that museum??  Very soon we saw two uniformed museum dudes coming our way and a small windowless room in our future, so we ran.  The guards chased us out into the street where we were fortunate enough to find one of the literally thousands of ‘taxis’ which swept us up, and out of the area before the police could respond.  Of the several lessons I got from that experience perhaps the most important one was learning  that you cannot always expect other people’s beliefs to be reasonable, or logical…but you must respect them just the same if you wish the same consideration in return.

No matter where the Navy took me, everywhere you go there is one thing that exists the same way in every country and continent, and that is this ability humanity has to just ignore the injustices heaped upon them, as they continue to work for the very system which oppresses them.  The proverbial elephant in the room, with Leonard Cohen on the radio singing “Everybody Knows” to intentionally deaf ears!    There exists a persistent and pernicious evil on this planet which seeks to dominate and control humanity; to prevent us from thinking, thriving and evolving.  It is cold, calculating, & heartless and seeks to re-make us it it’s own image…and we’re letting it!  Why is that, Really?  I conjure the biggest part of the answer is conditioning…they’ve been at it for centuries now, so the roots are very deep indeed.  The proverbial elephant in the room, conditioned its entire life to believe it cannot run free because of the heavy chain on its hind leg.  Except the Mahout (trainer/keeper) long ago replaced the chain with a small rope the elephant could easily snap…but he doesn’t because he believes he cannot!  Another part of Why might just be that as a group, humans often seem to prefer taking the path of least resistance. Especially so here; under the ever-decaying bubble of the American dream.  We Yankees are so addicted to our cars & creature comforts we dare not rock the boat too much for fear of loosing them.  Well played, pernicious evil, well played indeed!  Get the talking monkeys addicted to toys and stimulants so if they ever revolt, they loose it all.

Now Joe Six-pack & Marvin Middleclass know all this.  Somewhere in the back of their mind they figured it all out, did the math and arrived at the in-escapable conclusion that the fix is in, the game is rigged, no brass ring for you.  To their credit they do not share this epiphany with the wife and kids, no need to scare them; they just keep it tucked away in a dusty box in the basement of their subconscious and keep putting in those overtime hours to get ahead until they have their heart attack & die.  The thing is, all that is NOT in-escapable!  Joe & Marvin don’t have to settle for austere lives of debt and desperation; there is another way…and the boys know that as well, but to go down that path is to turn away from the hive mind and what is socially acceptable, and it requires an uncommon faith in yourself and the universe.  In today’s fractured world to openly say you believe something dramatically different than the masses is to invite disdain, alienation and possibly even a violent death.  Like I said, you just can’t always expect other peoples beliefs to be reasonable.

Throughout my life every time I encounter this head-in-sand ostrich mentality we humans have about confronting evil, I remember back to that house I grew up in and the ceramic on the fireplace mantle of the 3 monkeys, hear-no-evil, see-no-evil, & speak-no-evil…and I wonder if it was one of Dad’s little inside jokes, I wonder if he knew.  This ostrich mentality is by no means limited to politics, but is pervasive across the board, regardless of subject, be it scientific, philosophical, or religious.  It was always a disconnect for me that I was expected to quit believing in Santa Claus at a certain age while the grown-ups got to keep their invisible friends well into adulthood.  I also had some basic issues with the blind faith demanded by most all organized religions.   I’ve always been more of an empirical kind of guy when it comes to what I choose to believe.  I also had some degree of cognitive dissonance when it came to the idea of an all powerful perfectly infallible man in the sky who created everything including a divine master plan for all of us.  I guess I’ve just never been willing to passively let someone else do my thinking for me, they say I’m ‘funny’ that way, crossed wires or something.
There exists another reason why we humans abdicate our choice and power to those who would enslave us, and it’s about being willing to go to any extremes to keep from acknowledging our own power, and dominion.  I think we are afraid of the unknown but terrified of the unknown within ourselves.  We can sense the power laying there dormant and because we’ve never explored it, we fear it, even though it is US!  It’s like riding your bicycle everywhere because you forgot that inside the garage is a shiny new Porsche sitting there waiting for you.  We allow the most unqualified among us to not only steer the world closer to disaster with each passing day, but to also somehow convince us they are the only ones qualified to lead!!  We allow this vicious cycle of war, poverty & power mongering to continue decade after decade.  It’s the same damned dog & pony show every time…and just like Charlie Brown with Lucy & the football, we fall for the shit every time.  There must be a reason for all this somewhere; if we are just brave enough to look with the right kind of eyes.
I only mention this because as it happens, there is a widespread epidemic of awakening currently rampant across this planet and I believe it may well be our last chance to break free from the conditioning and have ourselves a revolution of consciousness that will turn things around, and get us back on course for our first best destiny.  We can, you know!  The very first step is remembering that the people gave the government the right to exist, not the other way around!  Only when this has been thoroughly established can there be any real progress forward; anything less is just the same old merry-go-round dog & pony show. The psychic numbing from generations of conditioning is starting to wear thin, it’s giving out, and the faster this awakening moves, the sooner we are free to pick up the pieces and start over…yeah, some stuff is gonna get broken, it might even get real ugly because we have pernicious evil backed into something of a corner, and you recall what they say about a cornered beast!

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing” ~ Edmund Burke.


A person’s belief system is sort of like when you stand a few hundred dominoes on end to form a pattern.  If one of those domino-like beliefs falls over because it’s proven invalid or just wrong, (lack of support) it tends to also bring down the next few beliefs in line.  If the belief that falls happens to be the keystone belief for the entire system, the first domino…the whole thing comes cascading down around your ears.  This is why so many steadfastly refuse to accept new concepts which threaten their belief system; not only is accepting the new paradigm going to send you off away from the hive mind, it’s also a lot of work.  Humans have repeatedly proven their reluctance toward change, especially when new ideas and new knowledge is involved.  Most only really change when the discomfort of remaining the same becomes too great, and it’s been said that in our western culture, if a person hasn’t changed old, self-limiting beliefs & programming by the time they are 45, they probably never will.  That would be like having to live with Bill O’Reilly in your head for the rest of your life!

Among those who are now awake, (and we are legion by the way) there are a number of differing thoughts & theories about how humanity is going to free itself from pernicious evil, now that the world didn’t end last December 21st.  Some are betting on the Rapture to save them from the fall of man, while others are digging in underground to wait it out.  There are those who believe that the Anunnaki will return to save us from ourselves…but, let’s not forget, the Anunnaki are said to have genetically bred our race specifically to be slaves.  Not sure I’d greet them with open arms. Some believe that by purifying our energy systems and raising our vibratory resonance, we will ascend to a higher dimensional plane; while another group believes we cannot and shall not escape total annihilation of the entire planet.  Unless you are still soundly asleep you might have noticed that this month has had more than a few  ripples of high strangeness for those looking for signs from on high.  The Pope quit his job, and lightning hits his house.  Huge pods of dolphins numbering in the hundreds, if not thousands are sighted for the second time off San Diego Bay.  NASA tells us of a space rock about to harmlessly pass by between Earth & her artificial ring of man-made satellites, but fails to mention the ones which fell to Earth in Russia, Cuba, Florida, California and Saudi Arabia! Then there’s news of a massive ‘filament’ on the sun which could maybe violently erupt, sending a planet singeing coronal mass ejection hurdling our way. Actually there are so many weird, unusual events taking place, someone has created an impressive new web site called Climate Viewer, just to track them all; http://climateviewer.com/
In a universe where anything is possible, any or all of these things might happen, or any one of a hundred other theories out there in La-La land as well; all are equally valid in the quantum universe.  As for myself, my money is on the Black Swan…which is a totally unforeseen event we are powerless to stop which when it happens will fundamentally change everything.  The black swan event comes from nowhere and is perhaps a response from the universe itself, an attempt to hit the cosmic reset button in our collective pineal gland.  You see, the black swan is limitless, doesn’t have to take the form of death and destruction but rather can manifest itself any way it pleases.  It might be Earth shattering news that stuns the world into the proper mindset for evolution almost overnight; or it might be so subtle and refined a thing that only children and pets can perceive it at first.  The very best thing about the black swan is that it eats pernicious evil like so many frogs on the shoreline of Birch Lake.  It renders evil irrelevant with one flap of its huge midnight wings.   It removes the butchers thumb from the edge of the meat scale.  It is a re-shuffling of the deck to remove those stubbornly clinging to a vacuous, dying empire so that the shiny new can have a turn at bat in this evolutionary procession.
Of all the recent “signs” that something big may be coming our way very soon; the one which most typifies both the situation, and the dire need to change it was all the Hullabaloo over Obama playing a round of golf with Tiger Woods.  It was such a spectacle that to thwart “the terrorists” a no-fly zone was declared…which grounded a med-evac flight…resulting in two people dying…”film at eleven”.

Until next time…Be good to each other.


  1. Maybe one day we’ll be able to use a person as an example of corruption and he/she won’t be perceived as connected to the Republican political party. Any of them could be used such as Maddow, Hannity, Cooper and Olberman. The “bad Republicab/good Democrat” play is wearing thin, don’t you agree? They’re ALL bad for me…. and you. Republicans feed on your pride and Democrats feed on your compassion. Stop feeding the monkeys.

    • You pretty much nailed it there Ksense, it’s all a talking head puppet show of talking points & swill. That said, I must admit to having liked Olbermann for a time. Myself and others repeatedly tried to get him to even mention chemtrails, he never did, not once, so my estimation of him dropped signigicantly, but he did have the best act!

  2. Brilliantly written. I couldn’t agree more. I think the Swan is slowly lifting her graceful wings so lets encourage her to take flight now; not some day but NOW. Thank you for an amazing article.

  3. We are only insane, when we cease to believe that it is possible that we are insane. When we believe that we are on the right track, are normal and balanced, open minded and fair, have we lost the thread of why we are here. Our world is insane, not a little bit but through and through and to believe we can stand as an icon of sanity, is the purveyor of our insanity.

  4. Thank you Chautauqua, and Zen for posting this powerful posting; words truly cannot express how deep this post resonates with me. I am physically exhausted constantly due to these changes happening right now. The spiritual fight between love and evil is so strong and fierce at the moment; it drains my energy constantly. To help me recharge I come here to this site, where I know what I will feel, will become transparent words in postings, the universe ousting our feelings. It helps me immensely to know that this spiritual warfare, really is happening inside us all, incredible how connected we all are. Truly incredible days we are witnessing indeed… We chose love, light, and freedom; we chose life!

    • Brother Gustavo~ The reason you so frequently feel exhausted is because you are running on “your own” energy reserves (which is perfectly normal) when with just a few minutes work you can tap yourself into the power grid of the causal plane, and download all the energy you require while keeping your reserve tank full, so to speak. Give it a try in meditation, ground yourself, then envision your crown chakra linking up to the universal grid…like mid-air refueling, Ha! Don’t worry about style or technique, meditation is mostly of intention, so what you intend, the ‘verse will send!!

  5. Another blisteringly good article, Chautauqua. Thank you.

    The world is mad, because it was created by a psychotic mind, exclusively for us, after all, we are the only creatures that I am aware of that are I conscious [ego based] The instincts of animals are far nobler than our groveling desires and squirming appetites.
    We can rail and rant about the status quo, but it makes no difference to the end result. It can’t because the programme is designed that way.
    We will never find peace until we understand that this is an illusion and we must be careful not to fall into its trap and get caught up in it, as we all do.
    I was the press and legal officer for a very militant direct action animal rights group in England in the seventies and eighties. We saved a few hares, foxes and stags from being murdered by assholes, but it didn’t change things. Sure, blood sports were banned in England in the nineties, but it’s business as usual behind the walled estates of the elite. And the elite own the police, too many freemasons with fingers in the pie, so nothing REALLY changes. It’s all just a cosmetic make over, to fool the public.

    We only have to look at the stupendous cover up of pedophiles in the British establishment. Those that get done for it, are obviously no longer useful to TPTB and are only the icing on the cake. The cake goes on…and on…
    Our job is not to focus outward into the LIE, but to release ourselves from the matrix in inner space.
    Let us strengthen ourselves with love and laughter, and remember we cannot put the matrix right, but we can break its programme in ourselves.
    Then and only then, will we be free.

    Thanks to you Zen for making this information available.

    • Well said Elva. The exposure is an important part of it at this point, but we need to keep the right spirit and attitude about it. It’s the spiritual contribution to this burgeoning awakening that’s making the difference. Lotsa love!

  6. My own strangeness of the times is that when I close my eyes, and even sometimes when they’re open, I see a very rapidly spinning sphere of a brilliant light. I’m curious if anyone else sees such a thing and/or knows what it is. I’ve been doing searches but see nothing similar. It seems like a sun but the sphere is usually black and the light is inside, spinning really fast and undulating. Sometimes the sphere is yellowish greenish and the light is yellow. Started last November. It’s always there.

  7. (from Peek Crackers:)
    Chautauqua.You smack that one out of the park ! Great peace very well done.! The sad part I still see the TPTB stomp and the herd runs to the direction they want , I Do see a wake up if you want to call it that , in this past 5 years i see people mostly in a wake and bake rather then then waking up . Lets take China , 1,354,040,000, a lot of slaves dont see a lot of revolting ( shrugs ) just think they buy air now . In the U S i see some people that have woke up to start a new dream Like being a Patriot ( blank stair ) I look at most people’s CIAfacebook page and and they are begging to have a sense of belonging with little saying they have poached of a site hoping deep inside it can give them guidance or fame work for emotional direction all in the name of acceptance for a reflective persona of independent thought. With this week’s news that CIAFacebook has accumulated 1.06 billion monthly active users and 680 million mobile users not to mention the twitter shit and ever other lets brag about what I cant really understand what I am but trying to be something social media outlets .Is this the best we can do as humans ? and it leads to this type of nonsense as Jeremy “Horwitz ” writes about Sixteen Zen, Relaxation, and Meditation Apps for your smart phone., Oh ya!! Zen in bottle fucking lovely. Let those soothing gewn tower waves fill your conscious space and and take over what the hell? Mr “Horwitz ” writes f you’re reading this article, you probably already know what “zen” is, so rather than defining it or the meditative state known as “zazen,” we’ll point you towards a useful Wikipedia entry and these a collection of sixteen new iPhone OS applications designed to help you relax.” haha ! your fucking kidding right ? wait how about this Buy your way to awareness at http://www.consciousbox.com/ SweeeeT! “Discover the Best Natural & Eco-Friendly Products on the Planet” Never can be to Eco friendly . Black Swan song is playing .Remember parasites need a host ! Like Government :-)

    • ~Peeks~ deep appreciation for your comments Bro, glad ya liked it. absolutely love your bit on the zen in a bottle, spirituality in your smart phone..Great stuff! Just goes to show there really is nothing they won’t try to turn a profit from. ahh yes, the New Age prophets named ‘Margin’ & ‘Motive” the only ones being worshiped.

    • P.S Chautauqua the detail in that post gave a kick ass visual! I just sent out to a bunch of other Cracker they are more sloped crackers types but i truly feel your words will resonate and they will reflect . again Bravo

  8. Great insight! Could not agree more – I have felt for a few months that it will be a whack event or events that will be a game changer. Strangely I think this event will be partially called forth organically by our awakened consciousness. That is why I don’t get overwrought that we are unable to organize – I think we are organizing this at another level.

  9. Brilliant piece. I’ve recently started to visit philosopher stone and always get inspired by your articles, Zen (and Chautauqua) as linked on PS.

    There are angels who know they are angels (e.g. Gabriel), and there are angels who don’t know that they are angels. The 2 of you are very strong candidates. Keep it up.

  10. Interesting article. Unfortunately you lost me towards the end. John Lennon isn’t some awesome guy to me. From what I know about him he was a Marxist antichrist. I won’t be putting my faith in some completely abstract fantasy called a “black swan”. My faith and trust reside in Yahushua Messiah (known to most as Jesus Christ). I didn’t fall for the lie of a pre-trib rapture like most mainstream Christians have and I haven’t stuck my head in the sand either. But looking at the prophecies in the Scriptures and then studying history I know that my faith has been well placed inside the hands of Yahushua. It’s funny, all of the earth changes you have mentioned were prophesied by Yahushua over two-thousand years ago and are uncannily accurate yet people still scoff at them and talk about “old men in the sky”. If you ever took the time to study the Scriptures you’d realize that descriptions like that are laughable. The Creator does not reside in the sky but exists somewhere outside of time and space, not affected by the laws of our universe. In order to create the universe you have to outside of time and space. So much propaganda and confusion in the world. I wonder why?

  11. Probably a good idea to start by not killing those frogs and fish.
    Too late… Yes I know, you didn’t know any better.
    Now you do. So why the sentimental thoughts of childish childhood killing?
    I mean… goose, gander, etc.

  12. Great article! BUT we must remember as always to learn the discipline of detachment. The impermanence of this life in the human flesh is the Truth of our perceived 3 dimensional reality. Look at our real situation as infinite, everlasting souls of consciousness simply wearing an Earth made human suit for a while. The Earth, in all of its infinite beauty, is by far one of the most beautiful classrooms any soul could ever wish to learn in. Remember, that we chose to come here and to come here at this particular time for various reasons. I do feel that in my heart and have come to believe that what we are collectively witnessing right now is purely for the spiritual development of our souls. This particular course being offered from the creator is a graduate or doctorate level material, because of the massive amount of energy, uncertainty, dualism, perceived evils, and all around demands of our own personal awareness and expansion of empathy and love for all. This is a 500 level course in being able to witness, perceive, and embody the Truth. To once again recognize our purpose for why we’re here and become aware of the fact that We are all ONE and all connected to each other, all living creatures, and the entirety of all that consciousness embodies and has to offer us. It is the infinite pool of intelligence all of us have been bathing in from eternity.

    Do no lose sight of what we’ve come here to do… figure out your personal legend, your task, your lists of spiritual lessons prescribed from up above and from within. Learn the insights of your heart and do not ever for one instance think that this was going to easy, but also in the same breath, one of the best, most fun, and exciting roller coaster rides any soul could ask for in the universe. We got a front row ticket to the best show in the universe and it’s called EARTH! Enjoy it while it lasts and I’m sure it won’t be our last ;-)

  13. Some things certainly are bigger than us..

    Bhagavad Gita As It Is
    TEXT 16.9
    “Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world.”

    At the present moment civilized nations are unnecessarily maintaining many slaughterhouses for killing innocent animals. When a nation is attacked by its enemies, the wholesale slaughter of the citizens should be taken as a reaction to their own sinful activities. That is nature’s law.
    (Srimad Bhagavatam 4.11.7)

    “You are killing innocent cows and animals. Nature will take revenge. Wait for that. As soon as the time is ripe, the nature will gather all these rascals, and club, slaughter them. Finished. They will fight amongst themselves, Protestant and Catholic, Russian and France, and France and Germany. This is going on. Why? This is the nature’s law. Tit for tat. You have killed. Now you become killed”
    – Srila Prabhupada

  14. What a pretentious liberal load of malarkey. Pick up a Bible and get right with the Lord. He’s your Black Swan- and the day of Reckoning is coming, you pathetic pitiable hippie freak.

    • Don’t be surprised if you’re left behind when your savior comes. You don’t sound much like a true christian. And if you do get a free pass then it doesn’t seem to be to a place I’d like to visit.
