Brainwashing in America and Brave New Schools, Chapter 3: A New Way of Thinking

"This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual [stirs up feeling], demonic." James 3:15

Peter, a former occultist, shared these important insights into the occult ideology now permeating Western culture:

What I learned in secret is now all over! Craving mystical thrills, children as well as teens and adults can find and usee them -- to their destruction

The creative visualization in the emerald tablet of Hermetic Magic is "as above so below." Visualize the above, manifest below. When individuals learn to use either D&D or magic the gathering, or any of the video games that are out there, they are dealing with conjurative magic. Innocent as they may seem, creative visualizations form the foundations of occult practice.

I was taught in ritual magic how to go to different planes of existence outside the physical body. I could create a realm there in which I could practice ritual magic. I perfected the craft by practice [PRAXIS]. When you did it on the physical plane, all you did was do what I had practiced in the creative visualization. And it would happen on the physical plane. A manifestation of the power of your will.

A comparison between the video games and card games that are occult in nature.

How it is used both that way and what it is used for:

Familiar with an aviation simulator? They simulate the inside of a cockpit in flying a plane. You can learn how to fly a plane in a flight simulator. Event to he point of being able to crash the plane by making mistakes.

In a flight simulator there is no risk. All risk has been removed. When you play these occult games, which are war games, you're doing the exact same thing that you would be dong in a flight simulator. No risk. Someone like me, used to be, could then walk up to any of these people who show promise (some level of skill) and I could put my hand on their shoulder, look them in the eye and say. If you get a rush from this, how would like to do it for real. No one has ever answered no.

So the other side uses the tournaments and the online exercises as a way to recruit kids right into the occult world.

How can Christian parents protect their children?

Tell your children that -- if they are saved -- their lives are based on a belief system -- on Jesus Christ. Then show them how to evaluate the game based on the 10 commandments. This gives them a foundation to build on. [See How can Games, TV, Books and Movies hinder your walk with God?]

Christians are vulnerable because they compartmentalize [or pigeonhole] the various aspects of their lives -- even God. They don't see their Lord as the foundation and expression of their belief system. Seeing the Bible as a mere book that is generally irrelevant to the rest of their lives, they leave God out.

In contrast, an occultist sees himself and everything everything else as interrelated -- one picture, so everything they do is predicated upon their beliefs.

 "This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic."  James 3:15

The occult world controls the world's concepts. Whenever anyone [not including committed Christians] prays and their praying for creative idea -- want to be inspired -- it's likely to be [occult master behind] Baal who inspires them.

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
     "But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together min the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus."  Eph 2:1-7

The Artifacts of Knowledge: A Biogenetical Structural Account of Symbol and Technology (by Charles D. Laughlin, Jr.):  "Technology and the Transformation of Being. However, it is precisely in the typically western, absolute and uncritical distinction between inner and outer operational environments that many theories of technology flounder in the mire of materialist reification.  For, in many societies the transformation intended by a technique -- even one with artifactual components -- is within the internal operational environment; that is, within the organization of the individual being.  The outer operational environment is transformed as a medium to produce inner transformations..... 

      "To give another example, Tibetan Buddhist practitioners will execute meticulous paintings intended to aid in perfecting internal visualizations. The paintings are not strictly necessary for the visualization practices, but are useful as an intermediary step in the internalization of the image.... Thus, at the same time, the painting is an artifactual aid to the fulfillment of an anticipated sensorial object, and an evocator of that object, and beyond that object a penetrator to the domain of arcane knowledge.


"The Problem of the "Practical." The distinctions we take so for granted as scientists between the being and the world...and between the supernatural (mystical) and empirical are not so clear cut, if indeed they are made at all, in most non-western societies.  Much technology in other societies is directed as much at access to, or control over the hidden cosmic forces in the world.... 

      "Perhaps the classical example of this blending of intents is to be found in Bronislaw Malinowski's discussion of Trobriand Island canoe-building.  The Trobrianders are a sea-going society living in Melanesia who subsist in part upon the proceeds of fishing.... There is a third type of canoe called a masawa that is used exclusively for sea-going expeditions. The masawa is carefully manufactured and the ritual-magical preparations involved in the manufacture are elaborate.  It is owned by a large social organization and there is a specialist who supervises all aspects, ritual-magical and technical, in its construction. 

      "As Malinowski repeatedly emphasizes, however, no clear distinction is made by the natives between "practical" labor and "impractical" ritual-magic.  Rather, both are requisite to the construction of a safe and seaworthy canoe and a successful expedition.  The canoe must not only be built, but it must be protected from the dangers it will confront on the voyage, as well as malevolent social influences upon and potential failure of exchange transactions.  It is significant that the simplest canoe, and the one in which people confront the least risk, has no ritual-magical component to its construction.  The larger vessel in which more serious fishing is carried out does require some ritual-magical protection.  But it is the sea-going canoes that pose the greatest risk to life and reputation that are the subject of the most severe ritual-magical sanctions." www.biogeneticstructuralism.com/docs/artfacs.rtf

If only we, Christians, would be as concerned about spiritual dangers -- demonic forces -- that we and our children face in an increasingly pagan world! As Peter said,

Dress yourself spiritually for war! Otherwise those demonic entities, servitudes, and fallen angelic see food -- naked food. If you are not wearing God's armor, you are an opportunity. So put on The whole Armor of God
