Main topics

Below are the main topics of the wiki. From each of them, you can in turn reach its subtopics.

  • Abbreviations (Abbreviations commonly used in online discussion, either on the Internet at large, or more particularly by the FotCM and related groups. Some of them may appear in article text, or in quoted content included in them.)
  • Books (Books on different topics, and recommended reading.)
  • Cassiopaean Experiment (The name coined for Laura Knight-Jadczyk's experiment with critical channeling. The channeled material which this experiment has led to is used as a source of inspiration for research, and the larger process of inquiry is inseparable from the Cassiopaean Experiment.)
  • Channeling and channeled material (To channel is to serve as a medium through which an entity communicates with living persons. Some channeled material can be verified to be true, but most can not – and plenty can be verified to be either false or meaningless word salad. The best channeled material can give valuable inspiration for critical-minded research – while most of it can grossly mislead. There are many concepts conveyed through channeling to examine.)
  • Esoterica (Esoteric matters that don't fit specifically into any of the other main topics.)
  • Fourth Way (A body of teaching on the possible spiritual development of man, introduced to the Western culture by George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff in the first half of the 20th century.)
  • Health and wellness (The state of our body not only affects our physical capabilities, but also our emotional health and intellectual ability; and conversely, our emotional health affects our physical health along with our thinking. This is one of the most important topics for anyone seeking to work on him- or herself or to be healthy and well in our all too sick world.)
  • High strangeness (High strangeness refers to a global phenomenon so strange and foreign to our daily terrestrial mode of thought, which it carries with it many implications of the existence of intelligences other than our own.)
  • History
  • Matrix control system (A metaphorical description of present day Earth reality, by analogy with several concepts from the 1999 movie hit The Matrix.)
  • Movies and TV series (Movies – fiction and non-fiction alike – on different topics, and recommended watching. Occasionally, a TV series may also fall into this category.)
  • Mythology
  • Natural science
  • New Age (In popular usage, New Age refers to a whole suite of spiritual or religious beliefs, in large part revived from prior tradition or in some cases based on new channeled information from a multiplicity of sources. The New Age is like a supermarket of spirituality geared towards subjectivity,)
  • Politics and pathocracy (The entire Western world, and its sphere of influence as extended through globalization, comprise a pathocracy. That is, psychopaths are in positions of power, and politics is almost entirely a managed show where nothing of large-scale importance is decided by the people.)
  • Ponerology and psychopathy (Ponerology is the scientific study of evil and its genesis, and its most important finding is that psychopaths play a main role in causing the suffering and inhumanity seen in the world at present and throughout history. Psychopaths lack empathy and conscience and the ability to ever develop them. Often charming and convincing, they act as intraspecies predators – preying on others in the interest of their own greed for power, status, money, and pleasure.)
  • Psychology (The study of how individuals and groups function, in terms of mind, emotion, behavior, interaction and relationships, brain functions, etc. It is essential to understanding ourselves and others, and how best to achieve what we value.)
  • Religion
  • Shamanism and archaic esotericism

  • Abbreviations (Abbreviations commonly used in online discussion, either on the Internet at large, or more particularly by the FotCM and related groups. Some of them may appear in article text, or in quoted content included in them.)
  • Adamic man (A human being who has an individuated soul.)

  • Alans (The Alans were a tribe from the Caucasus and possibly Northern Iran who may have brought the original elements of the Grail mythos to Western Europe.)
  • Alchemical terminology (Alchemists hid their esoteric work under various obscure terms and expressions due to some zealous persecution and a little jealous secrecy over the ages.)
  • Alchemy (Defined as an allegorical description of the human chemical factory and it's work in transforming coarse substances (base metals) into finer ones (precious ones))
  • Alien abduction (A phenomenon probably as old as history, but which acquired its modern form in the 1960s.)

  • Alignment (A person's or group's relationship to an archetype or thought center, in terms of manifesting it.)
  • All and Everything (Ten books in three series by G. I. Gurdjieff)
  • All is one (The Cassiopaeans and many other channeled sources state that 'all is one and one is all.' This idea is also found in various religious writing. The idea is however sometimes naively applied to matters at the human level of experience. The New Age approach of trying to 'see all as one' in order to influence reality is a case in point.)
  • All to those who ask (A service to others being gives all to those who ask. This leads to the question of what is meant by giving and by asking and who truly are the parties of the exchange.)
  • Analogy of the coach (The horse-drawn coach is used as a metaphor for the human being.)
  • Angel (The term angel is used in a wide variety of meanings in different contexts. Generally the term means a spiritual, non-physical being that belongs to some spiritual hierarchy or performs some specific function for a higher spiritual authority such as God. An angel is generally understood as being benevolent.)
  • Anticipation and non-anticipation (The Cassiopaean material discusses anticipation in relation to following one's path or interacting with reality at large. There two sides to the discussion: the first is that one should always anticipate attack in order to avoid problems by preparation; the second is that one should not be fixated on any particular imagined outcome of one's creative efforts or intent, because such fixation or anticipation restricts the 'creative flow.')
  • Antimatter (Antimatter is material composed of elementary particles of equal mass but opposite electrical charge.)
  • Antimatter universe (This universe is said to interact with the matter universe through gravity.)
  • Archetype (Generally, a universal idea or exemplar of a principle. The word is used in metaphysics, psychology, study of myths, and other fields.)
  • Aryans (Refers to a large human population was transferred from Kantek to Earth.)
  • Ascension (Refers to completing the development possible for and cosmically required of the human form and consequently moving to a qualitatively different form of being.)
  • Assemblage point (Refers to a locus of perception within the energy field of a being.)
  • Assumption (Assumptions are ideas, value judgements or unquestioned premises which color one's thinking, generally without one's own awareness.)
  • Atlantis (Atlantis is described as a global culture that has survived many cataclysms, the last and final taking place about 12,500 years ago.)
  • Atom (esoteric definition) (Esotericism views the atom, and matter that is built up from the aggregation of these atoms in a much more encompassing way then does material science.)
  • Attack (This denote action of the General Law towards hampering a person's or group's esoteric work or development.)
  • Attention (Attention, like the focusing of a lens that directs light, is a power of the Will that can direct energy and activity.)

B
B cont.
  • Being (Being is the togetherness of experience with an objective and a subjective aspect.)
  • Being called (Refers to the experience of the natural initiation of a Shaman who is “called” to a vocation by the gods)
  • Being mentation (Refers to thinking beyond the passive associative mechanism of the brain by the effort of the will.)
  • Being vs. non-being (Depending on the context and level, the reflection of these absolutes can be called service to others/service to self, creation/entropy, order/chaos, spirit/matter, consciousness/sleep.)
  • Belief vs. faith (In FOTCM discourse, the term belief means a concept which is accepted as a given truth, without necessarily being critically evaluated. 'Belief' often connotates emotional attachment of the believer to the belief. By contrast, the term faith can connote an open-minded attitude and trust in the process of inquiry.)
  • Big Bang (Emergence of the entire universe of matter and energy from a primal explosion where a point of infinite density, a so-called singularity, exploded and gave rise to all of what we consider to be the universe.)
  • Black hole (An object near which the gravity field is so intense that the escape velocity exceeds the velocity of light.)
  • Black magnetic center (A perversion of the magnetic center, forming through and pulling a man towards a self-serving caricature of genuine esoteric work.)
  • Bodies of man (Whether man possesses so-called higher bodies from birth varies from teaching to teaching. For example, theosophy and anthroposophy teach that such exist, whereas George Gurdjieff says they must be created through esoteric work. We can bridge between Gurdjieff and Rudolf Steiner by the system of seven bodies presented by Mark Hedsel.)
  • Books (Books on different topics, and recommended reading.)
  • Bose-Einstein condensate (A unique state of matter that forms below a critical temperature in which all bosons that comprise the matter fall into the same quantum state.)
  • Brain (The brain plays a role in mediating between the physical world and consciousness.)
  • Buddha (One who has Awoken. A title given to one who attains full and complete enlightenment without, in the life in which enlightenment is attained, having a teacher.)
  • Buddhism
  • Buffer (Fourth Way) (A buffer is a kind of thought-proof compartmentalization of the mind. They allow a person not to feel contradictions, putting the person's conscience to sleep. Under their influence, uncomfortable aspects of reality are ignored, and the person remains asleep.)
C
  • COINTELPRO (In modern usage, any covert or underhanded activity aimed at destroying movements or ideas the power structure finds threatening while maintaining deniability.)
  • Cabala vs. Kabbalah (The difference between cabala and kabbalah.)
  • Cassiopaean Experiment (The name coined for Laura Knight-Jadczyk's experiment with critical channeling. The channeled material which this experiment has led to is used as a source of inspiration for research, and the larger process of inquiry is inseparable from the Cassiopaean Experiment.)
  • Cassiopaeans (A channeled source contacted by Laura Knight-Jadczyk for the first time in 1994.)
  • Cataclysm (Cataclysms occur at very different scales.)
  • Catharism (A gnostic movement considered heretical by the Roman Catholic Church)
  • Celts (The Celts were a group of ancient peoples of Indo-European origin sharing linguistic, religious and cultural ties, and made up of numerous tribes.)
  • Center of gravity (The center of gravity of a person relates to the person's type.)
  • Centers (Fourth Way) (The 4th Way teaching attributes different areas of man's functioning to so-called centers.)
  • Chakra (The human body has seven main energy centers or chakras. Descriptions vary.)
  • Channeling and channeled material (To channel is to serve as a medium through which an entity communicates with living persons. Some channeled material can be verified to be true, but most can not – and plenty can be verified to be either false or meaningless word salad. The best channeled material can give valuable inspiration for critical-minded research – while most of it can grossly mislead. There are many concepts conveyed through channeling to examine.)
  • Chaos, creation, and order (In the classic Greek cosmogony, the Universe is created from chaos. Chaos, the primal confusion is the raw material and then organization, or logos (an ordering principle) comes about and creates the Universe. This mythic concept can be expressed in the more modern terms of quantum physics.)
  • Characteropathy (In ponerology, personality disorder that is acquired rather than inherited. Characteropaths play important roles early in the ponerogenic process.)
  • Circle people vs. pyramid people (Refers to an apparent split in social structure, religion, form of governance, architecture and art between different peoples of ancient history and prehistory.)
  • Cognitive dissonance (A ubiquitous condition to which the human is so inured to that most of it even goes unnoticed.)
  • Colinearity (Colinearity means going in the same direction, with colinear people have a natural tendency to head in the same direction.)
  • Collinear wave reading consciousness unit (The Cassiopaeans propose that there is a para-physical realm that is another layer in the structure of space-time from which our own reality is projected.)
  • Colloidal silver (Colloidal silver is a well-known alternative remedy for bacterial or viral infections.)
  • Color spectrum (Visible light corresponds to a range of wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation from about 400 for red to 800 nanometers for indigo.)
C cont.
  • Comet cluster
  • Companions Devoted to Liberty (The "Companions Devoted to Liberty" were a group of artists who were creators of much of the art contained in Gothic Cathedrals in France.)
  • Conscience (The awareness of a moral or ethical aspect to one's conduct together with the urge to prefer right over wrong: Let your conscience be your guide.)
  • Conscious vs. mechanical suffering (This is defined as consisting of conscious labors and intentional suffering, which is an impulse necessary for man's development towards objective reason and being while mechanical suffering refers to the emotional or physical reaction to anything ordinarily painful.)
  • Consciousness (Everything is really a form of consciousness, from its formless higher transcendental aspects to it's lower derivatives that take an innumerable number of different forms.)
  • Consortium (A group of business or government entities allied for promoting some specific agenda.)
  • Conspiracy theory (A label that is usually stamped on inconvenient allegations of dishonesty or fraud by government.)
  • Constatation (Used in the meaning of a definite result of self-observation.)
  • Cosmoses (Fourth Way) (The Fourth Way cosmology is based on a scale of seven worlds or cosmoses. This is related to the scale of densities of the Ra and Cassiopaea materials, but each classification has a different emphasis.)
  • Covert aggression (Avoiding any overt display of aggression while simultaneously intimidating others into giving you what you want is a powerfully manipulative maneuver, which is why covert-aggression is most often the vehicle for interpersonal manipulation.)
  • Crop circle (Genuine communications of "higher beings".)
  • Cryptogeographic being (Cryptogeographic beings are the huge animated forms that penetrate human consciousness, the supra-human forms that are quite conscious, aware, and active.)

  • Demiurge (Refers to the "malevolent God" of the Old Testament, a fallen angel responsible for material creation.)
  • Density (In the Cassiopaean and Ra materials, denotes a qualitatively distinct level of being. Each density has its own structure of life forms, modes of perception and interaction, and typical lessons for the consciousnesses residing in it.)
  • Depression (When one becomes dissatisfied with the stock answers given by religion, culture and science and begins to look elsewhere for truth, the resulting shocks of learning the true nature of our reality can be truly depressing.)
