THERE IS BUT ONE FIRMAMENT. THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO. Yet this is “simply not true,” according to the esoteric and the Copernican. The apostate doctrine, auspiciously milked at the succulent tit of occultism and then parented within the congregation of Scientism, postulates there are a minimal of 100 billion planets in the Milky Way Galaxy alone, each with a firmament all its own. Theosophist Helena Blavatsky said it like this: “There are millions and millions of worlds and firmaments visible to us; there are still greater numbers beyond those visible to the telescopes, and many of the latter kind do not belong to our objective sphere of existence.” As if Biblical cosmogony was not expanded upon enough by the Copernican—in fact totally erased and rewritten; I direct your attention once again to the unseen realm—the space between spaces—to that which lies just beyond the twilight of our humanist thinking yet another tenant of the Secret Doctrine. Science has a name for it—Dark Matter.
The longstanding feud between Newtonian physics and the observable pull of “galaxies,” which the Bible never thinks to make mention of and can only be observed, at any rate, through augmented reality—is not my concern. Dark matter is. Everything that science can currently give account for, matter that is, which includes Earth and its human inhabitants—everything below the Bible’s only recorded firmament—apparently consists of less than 5 percent of the entire universe. This dark “energy,” which populates the remaining 95 percent, cannot be tested, measured, nor quantified, and yet what is observably known of gravity is that there is not enough of it for the Copernican Universe and Newtonian physics to properly function. We’ve been fooled by the drop of an apple. Gravity is simply too impossibly weak to form the galaxies and complex structures necessary for the Copernican revolution. Scientists need something which interacts with gravity—something which doesn’t reflect or emit light—-something dark. In other words, they desperately need a failed experiment to work. And what better than another unseen, undetected, untestable, and unmeasurable force?
Dr. Rick Strassman writes of dark matter: “The only way we know it is there is by its gravitational effects. It must exist by virtue of the fact that the visible universe maintains its particular shape. Without this mass, there would not be enough gravity to hold the universe together—it would fly apart.”
Scientists have no clue how dark matter and dark energy works. Never-the-less, because galaxies are tightly bound clusters of mass held together by gravity, the insertion of dark matter is what makes it possible for galaxies, spread out over a large pallet, to exist. If dark energy is growing, it’s because outer space is continuously expanding—thank you Kabbalah and the Big Bang. This “dark” is therefore advertised as energy intrinsic to empty space—energy that not only fills in the gaps—energy which not only writes its own rules of physics—but is stronger than anything else known to man.
Put it slightly in other terms, everything that we experience is only a tiny fraction of reality. Ironically, if the occultist is correct—our sunlit existence is non-other than the shadow world of Plato’s cave. The mystic has long pointed his spiritual dog-tail away from the physical self, preferring to travel in the direction of light beyond form, and even more specifically, if one should find himself so thoroughly flagellated in his self-renaissance of enlightenment—to the darkness behind light. What is important to note about the esoteric tradition is that light and darkness are both interchangeable. If the word absolute can be defined as: “something beyond our knowing,” then Absolute Light is conclusively darkness to us. Helena Blavatsky herself writes: “In the sense of the Unmanifested and the Unknown as the opposite pole to manifestation, and that which falls under the possibility of speculation.…it is not Darkness as absence of Light, but as one incomprehensible primordial Principle, which, being Absoluteness itself, has for our intellectual perceptions neither form, color, substantiality, nor anything that could be expressed by words” (Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge).
In The Secret Doctrine Helena Blavatsky further elaborates:
“According to the tenets of Eastern Occultism, DARKNESS is the one true actuality, the basis and root of light, without which the latter could never manifest itself, nor even exist. Light is matter, and DARKNESS pure Spirit. Darkness, in its radical metaphysical basis, is subjective and absolute light; while the latter in all its seeming effulgence and glory, is merely a mass of shadows, as it can never be eternal, and is simply an illusion, or Maya.”
Should the inventions of Science penetrate the mysterious dark matter of esoteric tradition, they will surely arrive into the higher etheric planes of the theosophist’s wet-dream, a twilight realm of pure consciousness without ego which has at its correspondence the penetration into the higher ethers of the cosmic physical plane. The doorway into darkness is quite contrarily the darkness simultaneously entering our consciousness, and more importantly, is the occultist’s covetous contact with the Monad.
Consciousness is a universe too. And the brain is a receiver, apparently. If the Copernican is correct, should there really be another 100 billion planets in our minuscule back-alley Milky Way Galaxy, then stop to consider the occultist implications, and what the next generation Columbus is determined to discover—another countless New World landscapes available for the Psychonaut to explore within the realms of dark matter—a universe amply multiplied. Writes Dr. Strassman: “The strangest realms to which DMT might lead are those that exist within the mysterious realms of dark matter. There, which may indeed be here, no one knows what we will find.”
Once again Helena Blavatsky explains:
“Although as invisible as if they were millions of miles beyond our solar system, they are yet with us, near us, within our own world, as objective and material to their respective inhabitants as ours is to us….Each is entirely under its own special laws and conditions, having no direct relation to our sphere. The inhabitants of these, as already said, may be, for all we know, or feel, passing through and around us as if through empty space, their very habitations and countries being interblended with ours, though not disturbing our vision, because we have not yet the faculties necessary for discerning them. Yet by their spiritual sight the Adepts, and even some seers and sensitives, are always able to discern, whether in a greater or smaller degree, the presence and close proximity to us of Beings pertaining to other spheres of life. Those of the (spiritually) higher worlds, communicate only with those terrestrial mortals who ascend to them, through individual efforts, on to the higher place they are occupying….”
Science has the oddest habit of conforming to the sure-promises of esoteric tradition. Perhaps more than any other discipline, they have manifested the Mysteries and made the “Light-Bearer” known. Even more extraordinarily, “Modern science has validated Magikal theory,” claims D. Lawrence Meredith, author of Modern Alchemy and Occult Psychology, “except with a bit more power and substance tautologically. This thin line, the twilight state where neither consciousness nor unconsciousness is dominant, it is both. As one becomes more skilled at Magik and the creative progress, the regressive process, this will become more evident.”
On the importance of dark matter and energy, Meredith adds:
“Another aspect to this paradigm is that large portions are hidden, DNA. Surely, we can make the obvious parallel between the universe’s being made mostly of invisible material, the mind being controlled largely by unconscious psychic forces, and most human DNA being inaccessible and having an unknown use. The result of making such a connection is the realization that this TRINITY (i.e., dark matter, junk DNA, the unconsciousness) is the part of the universe that interfaces with the sublime, the eternal, the non-dual, the non-local, what is called Heaven.”
Blavatsky paid no lip-service to the Bible. “And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the ‘Lord of Phosphorus,’ and Lucifer, or ‘Light-Bearer,’ is in us: it is our Mind,” she wrote. Her largest imposing threat was the Christian who planted his gaze within the uncompromising light of Holy Writ. In order for the occultist’s plans of human transcendence into “the non-dual, the non-local,” as Meredith described it, specifically the eternal Overmind—in order for such a scheme to ultimately succeed, she could only hope the collective consciousness of the non-ego, which makes up the higher realm of dark matter, could outmatch her opponents by tickling their novel love of gullibility.
Tickling she did.
“Darkness is absolute light,” she wrote, “a fact now neglected if not entirely forgotten in theology.”
