The Elementalist Conception Of Death

A fear of death can cripple anyone who has become spiritually aware. Foreknowledge of one’s inevitable demise can seem to make all of our actions in this world meaningless. The greatest test of merit of any spiritual tradition is that it assuages a person’s fear of death. The Elementalist conception of death is that it both is, and isn’t, something to be feared.

Death is both terrifying and inevitable, and all the more terrifying because it is inevitable. It casts a shadow over every single action – or inaction – we take on this planet.

The inevitability of death means that nothing we achieve or acquire here can ever be permanent. It means that no matter how many billions we collect, or how many children we produce, or how many awards and honours we rack up, all is rendered to null upon the expiration of our physical bodies. Death will separate us from all.

The Elementalist doesn’t take this fact as cause for despair, but rather as cause for quiet rejoicing. Socrates said that the purpose of philosophy was to prepare oneself for death, and, to this end, Elementalism has specific, defined teachings about death and the nature of death.

Central to Elementalism is the knowledge that consciousness is the prima materia, and the material world merely a set of sensory perceptions within that consciousness, in the same way that a dream is. The physical bodies of each of us are merely sets of perceptions within consciousness, and these perceptions will come and go like any other.

Consciousness is outside of space and time, and therefore is not affected by whatever part of the Great Fractal it happens to be perceiving. To the contrary – the Great Fractal comes alive when it is perceived by consciousness. This means that our physical bodies can never really die, because consciousness will always dream them up again.

The Elementalist conception of death accords with the line in the Bhagavad Gita, which states: “Never have you existed not.” The true self is the consciousness that endures through all the changing perceptions; the false self is the current physical body and the identity that goes with it.

Therefore, the Elementalist’s faith in reincarnation is absolute. As such, the death of this particular physical form is not to be feared. It may even be something to be looked forward to – the death of one’s physical body in this realm might allow one to achieve a higher form in another realm. In any case, the Elementalist knows that they will get what they deserve, in line with the Law of Associative Reincarnation.

Elementalists maintain that all things existing in our world are just shadows of eternal forms that exist elsewhere in the Great Fractal. There are multitudinous dimensions of existence above (and below) the one in which we find ourselves now. One’s physical death here might cause one’s consciousness to ascend to a higher level, in which case it will incarnate into a less flawed form of the same body.

These beliefs mean that Elementalists have a different conception of grief to that of First and Second Hurdlers.

Our friends and family members, when they die, are only gone from us in the most immediate and most physical sense. They – and their frequency – still exist in the Great Fractal. Not only do the consciousnesses that we interacted with during this life still exist, but all the frequencies of consciousness that we interacted with still exist.

All possible aspects of every possible life are being experienced in every moment by God. As such, all of the consciousnesses and frequencies of consciousness that we engaged with in this life will reunite with us after death, as we reunite with God.

God can be thought of, in this context, as the source of all consciousness and of all frequencies of consciousness. In the same way that white light contains all other frequencies of light, God contains all spiritual frequencies. Even if a friend or family member should die young, their frequency still exists within God – and even in forms which did not die young.

A person might lose their attachment to a particular physical form when that form dies, but then, being freed from that form and reunited with God, that person will also become reunited with all the other frequencies that were encountered during that person’s previous life – or lives.

The easiest way to conceptualise the Elementalist understanding of death is as follows. Imagine climbing an arduous mountain trail and, after what seems like almost a century, coming to a mountaintop. Upon reaching the mountaintop, you are reunited with all the friends and family that you ever had, in every previous life.

Death is much like arriving at this rest space at the top of this mountain. From this vantage point, it’s possible to see, stretching off into the distance, all of your previous lives, as other valleys. Every time the trail descends and then rises again represents another life. With the right vision, it’s possible to see previous lives stretching off into infinity.

After an unknown length of time in this higher dimension serving as a rest space, another descent into a valley will be made (i.e. another journey into a lower dimension will be made), and that will be experienced as another life, wherein the true nature of reality will again be forgotten – and then again remembered.

This is all there is to life. To be one with God, and one with all the frequencies that resonate in harmony with your own, and then to separate from this state of congregated bliss and to enter into an illusionary world of suffering, only to awaken and return to God again. Elementalists call this pattern the Cosmic Dance, and we all dance it, even if we’re not very good at it.

Death is not to be feared, but the correct response to this fact is not callous indifference. The correct approach to death is to live with the highest possible frequency of consciousness: one that values life, but at the same time does not forego rectitude on account of the inevitability of physical death. Such an approach will lead to reincarnation among the highest possible frequency of beings.

This World Is One Of The Hellish Realms – But That’s A Good Thing!

Life on Earth can seem so terrible that sometimes one asks oneself if this might be hell. It certainly seems as if we are surrounded, not only by suffering, but by beings whose true will is to increase that suffering. As this essay will elaborate, this world may be hellish, but this is actually a great spiritual opportunity in disguise.

The first thing we have to ask ourselves is what the fuck we’re doing here.

What’s apparent, after very little thought, is that we’re all going to die – therefore material concerns are meaningless. The inevitable deaths of our physical bodies mean that it’s meaningless to accumulate wealth, or status, or even memories of pleasure. All is rendered null upon the utterly inescapable expiration of our physical bodies.

The purpose of being in this place must therefore be something spiritual.

Elementalists believe that the cessation of suffering comes from raising the frequency of one’s consciousness. Elementalism teaches of a great spiritual axis that stretches from perfect harmony with the Principle of Evil in the lowest place, to perfect harmony with the Will of God in the highest. The purpose of life in the hellish realms is to transmute that frequency of consciousness into the highest possible form.

This is achieved by saying Yes to that which God says Yes to, and saying No to that which God says No to, and saying Yes to that which the Principle of Evil says No to, and saying No to that which the Principle of Evil says Yes to.

The more evil there is in the world, the more opportunity there is for us to defy the Will of the Principle of Evil. The more savagery, brutality, callousness and neglect in the world, the more opportunity to act work in favour of civility, class, compassion and good cheer.

If we had incarnated into one of the heavenly realms, there would be little to do other than just chill out. That’s great fun if one is of a high spiritual frequency, because then one gets to experience the pleasure of interacting with other beings of high spiritual frequency. Every moment is a blissful revealing of some astonishing novelty.

If one is of a low spiritual frequency, however, it’s not enjoyable to incarnate in the higher realms, because one will get rejected by the beings that inhabit them. In most cases, those beings will not want to sully themselves by interacting with a being of a low frequency, any more than a group of humans would invite a pig to dine with them at a restaurant. And the difference in frequency between beings of two different realms can be much, much greater than the difference in frequency between humans and pigs.

After enough time has been spent being shunned and rejected, most beings realise that they don’t really belong in such a realm, around high-frequency beings. The sense of loneliness that they feel will eventually become overwhelming. And so they will incarnate, by choice, into the hellish realms, where the density of the world affords the opportunity to radically alter one’s frequency of consciousness.

In these hellish realms, one is confronted with the reality of death, which does not exist in the heavenly realms. The reality of death makes it possible for us to say No to it. All creatures that are born must die, but to dwell on this is to miss the point. The point is that by working to say No to death in this realm, we work to align our consciousness with the Will of God.

Even without the threat of death, suffering is ever-present in any realm below the heavenly ones. So by working to say No to suffering in this realm, we can also work to align our consciousness with the Will of God.

Any being that enters one of the hellish realms, and then works to say No to suffering and death, will raise the frequency of their consciousness. Raise it high enough, and it will become possible, after death, for them to be welcomed into the next world as a hero. In any case, they will get a realm full of beings who are a fractal expression of their own frequency, as per the Law of Assortative Reincarnation.

If one has raised their frequency of consciousness high enough, then incarnating into the next world will come as a great relief. One will be reunited with the frequencies that one encountered in one’s past lives, and on the best possible terms.

If not, one will incarnate into next world imperfect. This might also come as a relief, as one might still be liberated from the sensations of suffering that accompany existence in this hellish world. This relief, however, will soon turn to dismay, as the beings in the higher world come to reject one for being of such a low frequency of consciousness.

Many might prefer, in such an instance, to incarnate into one of the hellish realms. Rather than being shunned by high-frequency beings in one of the heavenly realms, and suffering the immense loneliness that ensues, many would prefer to wage spiritual warfare with the Principle of Evil here in one of the hellish realms. The rewards are much greater and much more immediate.

Being here, in this hellish realm, could be thought of as much like moving overseas for a higher income. It’s scary, challenging and often frightening and unpleasant, but the rewards are much greater than remaining in comfort. The hellish nature of this place creates such a powerful temptation to do evil that truly heroic resistance to that evil becomes possible.

Ultimately, then: this world may be hell, but that’s a good thing, because it gives us a chance to rapidly and dramatically change the frequency of our consciousness. With a sufficient effort of will, it’s possible to transmute even the nastiest and most bestial consciousness into something angelic.

If this world were less hellish, and if the suffering here would be less intense, the opportunity to transmute the frequency of one’s consciousness would be less. The decisions we made would be less impactful, because the influence of the Principle of Evil would be much weaker. Only a very gradual shift in frequency would be possible.

There are realms more hellish than this. Let us work to not go there!

Clown World Chronicles: The Clown World Pantheon And How To Use It For Magical Purposes

All throughout history, people have believed in divine forces behind everyday phenomena. Most people have an intuitive sense that the material world is not the only thing that exists. Appearances can be deceiving. Beneath the surface lies a glorious array of elemental forces, many of which are breaking through into popular culture in the form of a new pantheon of gods and goddesses.

The Clown World pantheon represents the elemental forces at work in Clown World. These forces are the same ones that have always been present, in all times and places: good and bad, masculine and feminine. All of these forces, and combinations of forces, have manifested in Clown World in anthropomorphic form.

These forms are the gods and goddesses of Clown World, as described in this third section of the book. All of these have, and continue to be, depicted in the counterculture of Clown World. Chad, Virgin, Coomer, Wojak, Pepe and Corona-chan are some of their names. They appear whenever someone summons them by manifesting the right energy.

In this sense, the Clown World pantheon is little different to the Greco-Roman, Norse or Hindu pantheons. There are masculine and feminine gods, and there are old and young gods, and there are benevolent and malevolent gods. Much like Mercury, Odin, Athena, Haruman, Loki and all the rest, the gods and goddesses of Clown World represent the entire territory of metaphysical space.

This third section of the book is an attempt to map the elemental forces of creation as they manifest in various Clown World figures.

The vertical axis of the Clown World pantheon is the good/bad axis. At the top is Kek, the personification of good will. At the bottom is The Merchant, the personification of malice. In the centre are Pepe and Wojak, who represent the everyday Clown World denizen in their masculine and feminine forms.

The horizontal axis of the Clown World pantheon is the feminine/masculine axis. This stretches from the feminine pole, at the far left, to the masculine pole, at the far right. ‘Feminine’ and ‘masculine’ here mean what a Taoist means by yin and yang: two opposing but complementary forces which are found in all things, but at different ratios.

The vertical axis of the Clown World pantheon can be considered a central pillar. Out of the centre of this pillar come four separate axes. To the lower right goes the Negative Masculine Axis, to the upper right goes the Positive Masculine Axis, to the upper left goes the Positive Feminine Axis, and to the lower left goes the Negative Feminine Axis.

In this sense, ‘positive’ means that the divine beings on these axes exert a beneficent influence upon the denizens of Clown World. ‘Negative’, on the other hand, refers to a malicious or destructive influence.

The Clown World pantheon, as it is presented here, is therefore a map of metaphysical space. All things that exist, no matter what combination of good/evil/feminine/masculine they might embody, have a place somewhere on the diagram at the start of this chapter. If any of those things know where that place is, they can move to elsewhere on the map if they manifest the right energies.

The Clown World pantheon must also be understood radially. This conception has Pepe/Wojak in the centre, where Pepe represents rising forces and Wojak represents falling forces. Together, they represent the cardinal form of all principles. Pepe represents the cardinal force of action and Wojak represents the cardinal force of thought.

Moving out from the centre, one comes to the Younger Gods. They represent the mutable form of each principle, i.e. an energy that has character but which can still change. They are no longer cardinal forces, as previous decisions have committed them to a certain range of action, but neither are they fixed forces. In a sense they represent each elemental force at the prime of its powers.

Furthest out from the centre are the Elder Gods. These represent the fixed form of each force. Spiritual energy that reaches this far out from the centre is difficult to change – it has moved so far in one direction that its course is effectively set. The only way to change it is to die, and then to be reincarnated again in the centre.

Every person starts in the centre when they are born. If they are feminine, they will move outwards towards the feminine pole, and vice-versa if they are masculine. When they stray too far towards one of the extremities, they die, and are reborn again in the centre. This leads to each consciousness naturally making a toroidal motion through metaphysical space.

Using the Clown World pantheon for magical purposes is a rich and rewarding art. There is nowhere near enough space here to go into the details of magic itself. It’s enough to say that the purpose of magic is to cause change according to one’s will, and that the primary target of magic is the frequency of one’s own consciousness.

The simplest way to use the Clown World pantheon to change one’s consciousness is to ritually focus one’s attention on a particular Clown World god or goddess for an extended period of time.

The first way to do this is by entreaty. This is the method best suited to people whose IQs are average or below average. It involves simply praying to one of the Clown World pantheon and entreating them for good fortune. One might pray to Boomer for a slice of his wealth, or to Chad for some of his swagger, or to Waifu to reveal herself.

A hospitality worker might entreat Karen to go easy on the complaining tonight. A person hosting a party might entreat Honkler to give everyone a good time. A psychiatric nurse might entreat Doomer to stay away from their patients. The purpose of such an action is to attract the good will of the pantheon figure in question.

The second way is by meditation. This is the method best suited to people whose IQs are above average. It involves focusing one’s attention on one of the Clown World pantheon and holding it there, until one’s own frequency of consciousness takes on the frequency of the god or goddess. This will lead to the environment of the magician taking on that frequency as well.

Advanced meditation is possible after a person has studied the different pathways from one point on the map to the others. Knowing this, they know the different forces influencing each member of the Clown World pantheon. Meditating on these pathways will confer a degree of mastery over the energies of that part of the map. This mastery can then be applied to real life.

In summary, the Clown World pantheon is yet another example of the age-old practice of representing metaphysical space with a symbolic map. Great fortune, power and lulz await anyone who masters accurate navigation between the various points on this map, because they will be able to live their lives in ways that entertain the gods.

The Elementalist Conception Of The Meaning Of Life

Elementalists believe, much like the Existentialists, that every person is entirely free to choose what the meaning of their life is. Broadly speaking, the meaning of life that a person chooses will fall into one of four categories, each corresponding to one of the feminine elements.

Some people choose domination. This corresponds to fire. These people have the most energy to expend. They strive to become professional sportsmen, business tycoons, politicians or military/law enforcement/security. People who choose this as the meaning of life are likely to see other people as weak.

Some choose exploration. This corresponds to air. These people are masculine, and like to go forward, but they are more subtle about it than the dominators. People in this group are more likely to become backpackers or psychonauts. If someone chooses exploration as the meaning of life, they are likely to see other people as boring.

Some choose pleasure. This corresponds to water. People who choose pleasure are feminine because they will shy away from adversity, but they are not entirely feminine, because they do not shy away from pleasure and are attracted to the possibility of it. If someone chooses pleasure as the meaning of life, they are likely to see other people as masochistic.

Some choose survival. This corresponds to earth. These people are feminine, and are prone to retreating. Life on this planet is hard enough without worrying about things like domination or exploration. Much better to just hunker down. If someone chooses survival as the meaning of life, they are likely to see other people as foolish. ‘Why take a risk if I don’t have to?’ is their motto.

In principle, every person could be assigned to one of these four groups based on how they choose or desire to live, even if they haven’t consciously chosen that group themselves. This is because every person who chooses to go forwards – in other words, every person who chooses to live – must have a reason to do so, and the potential range of those reasons is finite.

However, all of these reasons are only ever a Secondary Meaning to a life.

The Primary Meaning of every life is to entertain the gods.

Elementalists believe in higher dimensions that are populated by beings of higher frequencies. These beings are capable of observing us without our being aware of it, much like we might observe a creature under a microscope. To us, they are the gods: higher frequencies in higher realms of the Great Fractal.

It is to entertain these gods that our lives have meaning. The more righteously one attempts to full one’s Secondary Meaning of life, the more gloriously one fulfills the Primary Meaning. If our futile struggles to dominate or to explore the Great Fractal entertain the gods, then our lives have meaning despite being finite.

It needs to be emphasised at this point that all of us are mortal. So all of us are faced with a dilemma. Domination and survival are impossible because each of us will inevitably weaken with age and decline into death. Infinite pleasure is impossible because the agonies of aging and dying must befall all of us. Even exploration is meaningless because the memories of it will not survive death.

What this means is that every Secondary Meaning, i.e. every meaning that we could ourselves give to life, is ultimately futile and pointless.

Many never overcome this dilemma, withdrawing from life and saying No to it. Such people appall, disgust and bore the gods. Those who fail to overcome this dilemma are soulless; they don’t try to dominate or explore, they don’t seek pleasure and they don’t care if they live or die. These existential zombies have failed to understand the Primary Meaning of life.

Those who do overcome this dilemma behave in ways that entertain the gods. Their example is authentic, passionate acceptance, saying Yes to life. This pleases the gods, who see a spirit that may one day rise to stand among them in a higher dimension. In the Elementalist conception, man lives so that the gods might regard him as they once regarded Alexander.

This conception clashes head-on with others. Some of the most common competing ideas about the real meaning of life are religious ones: that we’re here to overcome evil, to purify our souls or to escape the world of suffering. But Elementalists reject all of these conceptions.

Overcoming evil cannot possibly be the Primary Meaning meaning of life, because evil will always be a part of the world as long as it’s possible for God to will it. Struggling against evil might be a Secondary Meaning to life, especially if that struggle was one of survival, but the Primary Meaning would still be the entertainment value that one’s struggle provided the gods.

Neither can purifying one’s soul (understood by the Elementalist as raising the frequency of one’s consciousness) be the Primary Meaning of life. If it was, then life would be no longer possible once this had been achieved. Struggling to purify one’s soul, if that struggle be heroic enough, can serve as the Primary Meaning of life. Then again, so can struggling to degrade one’s soul. Both the rising beast and the falling angel entertain the gods.

Nor can escaping the world be the Primary Meaning of life. There’s ultimately nowhere for consciousness to escape to, other than reunion with God, and in such a case there’s no going forward without re-entering the world again. The problem with escaping samsara is that nirvana is batshit boring. Of course, however, struggling to escape the world can serve as the Primary Meaning of life should it entertain the gods.

The ancient Greeks understood the overwhelming importance of behaving heroically for the sake of the gods’ attention. They understood that the gods and goddesses watch over us from a higher place. This knowledge has been lost today, which is one reason why we live in such a pitiful manner, struggling for purpose and meaning.
