  1. Hi Greg. I was interested in the question posed to your guest about the “flat earth model.” I get it that you are concerned about appearing to endorse one model or another and what such an endorsement could mean to your audience. The value of the topic, for me, has always been found in the opportunity to further explore WHY I think what I think, and HOW I arrived at this narrative. The content of the narrative (in this case the flat earth model) is paradoxically less important than being allowed to peek into my own inner workings. Peeling back layers of programming, as it were, and coming to the understanding of what ( or WHO?) has shaped my inner reality IS the takeaway. And as uncomfortable as it is, I find it useful. Cheers.

  2. What an excellent show. Really aces, the tops.
    Personally struck by the 28 Leo. That’s my Luna.
    Lots of missed things coming to light – and upwards trajectories, seems.

    Wonder what the post-August 21st
    Total Solar Eclipse in Regulus will
    will have fir Nate Foster/Occult Fan?

    But I must say, 8 times at least
    or here enough to say this, it was the Watchmaker Conundrum
    which always has proved a Divine Creator to me.

  3. WELL!!!! THAT is an amazing pinging idea that astrology works because we are in a simulation! AND that would be a great reason for why it has been religiously debunked so we didn’t look there and work this out! And maybe every time it has been rediscovered they have had a purge??? I was a bit puzzled that Preston did not seem to closely connect the two throughout the interview? Or do I need to listen again?

  4. I just needed to listen longer! BUT the fact that them upstairs use it seemed similar to fact that while Rockefeller was killing off all the homeopaths he damn well kept one for himself and did not use allopathy. NO WAY “they” don’t know what they doing! To ignore that takes power away from us – we need to make our own and not let a ring of Saturn make us buy a shoe!! And if we do this because we are having spells cast on us then our behaviour is not because we are stupid. But they sure love us thinking that we are! Also if it is a simulation then it is all code and as Preston says it doesn’t matter what shape! Except in that we are all in ignorance about where we are and then why we are…

  5. Threre is a movie that came out in 1999 about simulated reality. “The Thirteenth Floor” has quite an effect. I recommend watching.
    Thank You you for another great show, Greg! It’s nice to listen to a knowledgeable host like yourself.
    Congrats on marriage!

    • I’ll second that recommendation. “The Thirteenth Floor” has always been a favorite of mine. It had the misfortune to come out only 2 months after “The Matrix”, so it was doomed to be forgotten right from the start.

  6. What if Google, facebook, and the NSA are trying to record everything that is going on in the United States to build a database and then look for patterns. They could then see where the planets and stars are aligned and see what is really going on during each change in the planets positions. Sort of reverse engineer the stars.

    • I would say this is almost certainly taking place, and likely has been for some time. It’s impossible to imagine their unique positions in data collection being lost on them. Definitely not something understood from the lower levels of these organizations, but a select few are bound to have stumbled on the value in what they have.

      Any living database, sufficiently large, has power. There’s a well-known phrase in the marketing world that goes “The money is in the List”, referring usually to a company’s financial growth being directly tied to their email marketing list or the like. We could argue how true that really is, but more importantly I think it points to be a greater universal truth that’s easily illuminated, that at a certain point in growth any collection of data begins to exceed the sum of its parts.

      If you have a record of when one person goes to work every day for the past year, you don’t have much; for prediction that list can only really be relevant to that one person. You’ll have a good chance of knowing when they will go to work the next day, but that’s about it. If we expand that list to 100 people it gets a little more valuable, but still pretty mundane. If we expand it to the entire population, we begin to have a tool that can see a lot deeper than 1 day, or 1 week, for 1 person.

      Clif High in his THC episode on the Web Bot Predictions really illustrated this point from a data science perspective. If you haven’t listened to that episode I’d recommend it. Remarkable insights.

  7. Down up left left A right down.
    So here is a odd thought: what if the SIM universe model is a more likely explanation for the Mandela effect some people have claimed? I’m not saying I think that the Mandela effect is true, just a what if because I don’t know that it isn’t true, either.

    • Interesting thought. This would go beyond merely locating patterns in the system we live in, but suggesting it’s malleable in some way. I think it’s only reasonable to assume that our reality can be affected by us, like rewriting the code mid-execution, given the pervasive theories on intention and perception changing things around us.

      I find it a little far-fetched to believe all the claims you’ll hear from pushers of the “Law of Attraction”, since I think most of us know sitting around and wanting money doesn’t make money just fall out of the sky; however, I don’t find it hard to believe at all that people thinking negative thoughts all day tend to have only negative things happen to them, and vice versa people thinking positively. And the psychological explanation that this occurs entirely in our minds doesn’t go nearly far enough in explaining the synchronicities we can experience in our lives.

      The Mandela Effect would suggest that reality is being changed against the collective will, since the majority are noticing these changes as “odd” or “wrong” rather than what they expected.The question then would be: is this change being initiated by an elite minority with the knowledge to effect reality, or is it simply a natural phenomenon?

      • The notion that the system can to some extent be influenced seems to me a fundamental assumption of what we might call magic, though I absolutely agree that the power of positive thinking approach is not a valid reality bending method. But there is a big difference between doing a working to speak to a spirit of better your odds on some goal and rewriting history. You might be able to influence the pawns and rooks on the board but you can’t change the move you made seven moves ago.

        So my first question would be that is the notion of time that I have heard proposed by quantum theory fans (I don’t remember hearing about it from a actually physicist) is that time is not linear or cyclic but concurrent. If that were so it could just be a matter of adjusting one line of code. Maybe the Mandela effect is a problem with the ability to read that code wasn’t adjusted somehow. I’m not a computer guy so I don’t know how that might work. I have never been a fan of that view of time. Remote viewers and astral projectors have long claimed to be able to observe things at other points in time, is it possible to utilize similar methods for direct action? I can’t say.
        Thank you for that.

      • I think I had an insight about this and I intuitively wrote an entire book(let) about it regarding “the simulation” and the mandela effect. http://mediumdigital.com/truth-cypher
        If this is a simulation, there is no reason to think that there aren’t multiple simulations running concurrently. One could think about this as the potentiality. Being as we know it is a consciousness simulation, all taking place in our individuated consciousness. Their overlap is what we consider consensus reality. It’s not a computer – but it’s LIKE a computer in many ways, particularly in finding patterns (as above so below?). If every sentient is a fork of the “game” it’s no wonder that objective facts are so elusive. What I’m suggesting is that conflicting facts can be simultaneously true. To me, this concept easily validates and explains the Mandela Effect. An example. I think most of us THC fans love Ole Dammegard. Why would the universe provide facts of ludicrous hoaxing and staging while someone ensconced in MSM could point to myriad of facts that a terror event unfolded as reported? The answer might be that events themselves are not objective (even though it seems preposterous to suggest such a thing). The Mandela Effect is a clue that reality is a potentiality. Sometimes these alternate potentialities change tracts of reality and manifest in the consensus. The internet is our crystal ball to peer into these conflicting universes. Whatever your bias, you will find confirmation. Because part of the simulation, the game, is to choose your reality. What is not told by dominators it that we get to co-create this great game. My Truth Cypher is about how to navigate the multiverse and make correct reality choices.

  8. Preston, great talk. I have a question and a comment.

    Have you considered the possibility of a projected reality from a higher dimensional space rather than a simulation? (if not, see imagining the 10th dimension: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ca4miMMaCE)

    I believe the light that the astrologers speak of is longitudinal/scalar/torsion/chi EM emissions (@ superliminal velocities) as evidenced by some of the early experiments by Nikolai Kozyrev with detecting astronomical bodies actual location by these waves rather than where the visible light from the body appeared.
    http://tompaladinoscalarenergy.com/nikolai-a-kozyrev-scalar-energy-astrophysicist/

    Essentially what I am saying is that I believe astrology gives us the environmental conditions of the life force attenuation in which reactions will take place at the time being queried by the astrological chart.

    • This is new info to me. I’ll check these both out, thank you!

      Specifically your theory that “astrology gives us the environmental conditions of the life force attenuation in which reactions will take place at the time being queried by the astrological chart” would go a very long way in providing an explanation for the Medieval astrological technique of Horary, where the chart is cast for the moment in time that the astrologer being asked first understands the question.

      • Another theory of interest is the 12-dimensional theory of Burkhard Heim, which is difficult as his book has only ever been published in German. There are a few English articles about his theories, but they aren’t complete.

        Turn on captions:
        https://youtu.be/zGu_WeNNAVQ

        Heim was regarded by some German intellectuals during the 20th century as Germany’s Hawking, he died the in 2002. His story is quite interesting itself as he suffered terrible injuries during WWII after an explosion during an experiment which remains undisclosed. He was blinded, left mostly deaf, and had both hands amputated significantly below the wrist. A radical surgery was performed to split the arm-bones cover them in skin grafts and have the arm-muscles re-attached to form fleshy pincers allowing him to retain sensation and have some degree of motor function.

  9. At around the hour mark you guys are talking about branding and sigils and such. Has anyone read Doug RushKoff’s Aleister & Adolf? It really goes deep in tying together sigil magick with branding. https://boingboing.net/2016/12/16/aleister-crowley-and-adolf-hit.html
    Not sure how true the story is. Anyone know if Crowley really did come up with the V for victory sign (sigil) that Churchill popularized??

    Also, wanted to thank you for this episode. I’ve written a draft called “Truth Cypher” which is an approach to navigating the “simulation”. I hadn’t fully considered the idea that just as nothing is truly random in a computer, such is the case in our reality simulation. Thus Tarot and Astrology are ways to identify simulation patterns, which is why they often seem to work. Great insight Preston! I’ve started podcast reading with commentary the Truth Cypher booklet I wrote on YouTube if anyone wanted to check it out. Still a ways to go until it’s done. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6h2TeNFCjeb-yuIaJ27eJw
    Ties in multiverse, mandela effect, cern, slits experiment and essentially how conflicting events can be simultaneously accurate.

    Also, Greg. I’ve wanted to join the Forums but my plus username won’t work. Help me out if you can!
