Meet the Grand Magician of Is

Meet the Grand Magician of Is

This Wizard is one of my favorite inventions for explaining “life in this reality.”

The Wizard is always busy pointing out What Is. “This is, and then over there, that is, too. Don’t ignore this other thing that is…”

On and on and on.

The Wizard of Is surveys the world and the universe and says, “Here it all is. This is what will eliminate the need for you to invent your own world.”

Translation: “It will keep you in a beautiful prison forever, because all roads lead through a maze that takes you back to the beginning, where you started.”

The Wizard of Is does everything he can to convince you that What Already Is is your best option, your destiny, your home of homes.

After that, you only have to find your place in it. The Wizard is very good at cooking up mumbo-jumbo about you needing a particular place and how, when you find it, things fall together and click together for you.

“We’re making this endless TV series called Reality and there are many roles available. If we can find your best role, you’ll fit it like a glove, and then you’ll be happy.”

The Wizard then makes sure to indicate that challenging What Is is a very difficult road. It opens you up to all sorts of dangers, he says. The Wizard has lots of experience in wielding the stick and the carrot.

What are some of the characteristics of What Is? It’s always there. You can always see it and look at it and get involved with it. It’s like a vast painting in a museum—except you walk into it and live there. It’s made for you. It’s apparently seamless—once you’re inside it. It doesn’t break down and reveal rips in its fabric. It endures.

You can approach it from many angles—political, economic, social, medical, military, scientific. But above all, What Is is a Continuum, which is to say it’s an interlock of space-time-energy. It all fits together. Each aspect enforces and confirms every other aspect.

The idea of exiting from it seems absurd. You’re there, and there you will stay. Your job is to fit in, to find your place, your role, your destiny.

A great deal of Wizard-of-Is propaganda surrounds it. For example, you have no capacity to exceed its parameters. You can make use of technology to explore and manipulate certain pieces of What Is, but without technology you’re lost. Therefore, those who supply you with technology are your masters.

The Wizard states that he is your guide. He’ll help you navigate What Is to your advantage. This is your best option. Your only option.

All of this is a highly sophisticated form of hypnosis.

The Wizard says, “You don’t want to think too much about What Is. It’ll lead to disillusionment. You’ll feel depressed. You won’t know what to do. You need to accept What Already Is. All happiness stems from that.”

But acceptance is half a meal. It’s unstable. It breaks down. In time, the devotee finds himself at sea, cut off from his own creative power, unwilling to exercise it, for fear that he’ll overstep his mandate as a human being.

This makes the Wizard rejoice. It’s his device, his con.

Some years ago, I was interviewed by a host who urged me to talk about the Matrix. But with every step I took, I could see in his rushed agreement all the signs that he was becoming more and more uncomfortable.

He was looking for a conclusion, a wrap-up that would confirm his hypnotized belief in What Is.

It was, all in all, quite amusing. He was saying yes, yes, while he was thinking no, no. He wanted the Wizard of Is, that’s all.

So I introduced the idea of the Wizard. Then, I really saw him go into internal paroxysms. He looked like he was about to fall off his perch.

He was dedicated to systems all the way down. He wanted to be surrounded and comforted by a structure that would eliminate the need for him to do anything—while he pretended that was not the case.

I said, “Look, if you really like systems, invent your own. You don’t have to be living under the umbrella of someone else’s.”

I saw a small light go on in his eyes.

“That’s interesting,” he said slowly.

After the interview, he took me aside and told me, “You know, I rarely think about a new idea on these shows. I’m pretty much up to speed on everything. But maybe I can dump that Wizard you talked about…”

The Wizard isn’t forever. He just acts as if he is:

    “He was dedicated to systems all the way down. He wanted to be surrounded and comforted by a structure that would eliminate the need for him to do anything—while he pretended that was not the case.”

    So comforted by the structure, he willingly gave over his will to it. He eagerly surrendered his time, his energy, his creativity, his very essence just to be absorbed into the structure that both mothers and smothers him.

    But the prison isn’t so beautiful anymore.
    The bread and circus crumbs are also drying up with so many grabbing for them.
    The stripmall/industrial park/subdivision model of existence is a big steaming pile.
    Sadly it costs triple to live out somewhere where nature reigns.

    What a revealing article. Your metaphor cuts deep into the workings of the system that controls our life.

    The Wizard masquerades as priests, professors, and philosophers; therapists, teachers, and television anchors; bankers, bureaucrats, and biographers; and many professions more.

    He’s sold reverence to the almighty finite, so well that human limitations are fundamental axioms of thought. The tradition stretches throughout history, -from a time before Platonism, through the great governments and religions, and into today’s derivatives of Huxley’s perennial philosophy.

    It’s the original version of mysticism. “Only by knowing what is can you arrive at the truth. Only through what is can you experience happiness. Worship what is. Pay homage to they way things are. Participate in society. Because what else could there ever be?”

    We’ve been flipped upside down from the get-go and have based our lives around experiencing the residue of some great force, without ever attempting to understand it. Question too deeply and you’ll start to ponder how exactly did ‘what is’ come to be. Then you run up against an uncomfortable concept called creation.

    In the reduction of reality to number and name, in the program of owning and controlling the world, we have wrought a Tower of Babel, seeking with our finite tools to take the infinite by storm … The supreme irony in our Babelian quest of attaining the infinite through finite means is that we are actually enacting precisely the opposite. We are liquidating all that is infinite, sacred, and unique, converting it into the finite, the controlled, the generic, standard, and measurable…We are cashing in the earth, selling off our lives, reducing reality to data. Soon there will be nothing left to convert, as all social, cultural, natural, and spiritual capital is exhausted.

      Eisenstein that neo-marxist hipster, that is so cool, that he doesn’t ask a price to speak…polluted the minds of many with his lefty clap trap. That reality sandwich bunch of touchy feely new-agers, that want us all to jump into the pool with them. Become the great gooey oneness, the; there is no you, there is only one, ending forever the duality of existence, but not realizing that, that ‘is’ what the nature of this prison cell shows us. Black and white, up and down, zig and zag, pete and repeat. 

      That Soros funded idiot and his compadres Daniel Pinchbeck, R U Sirius, Stanislov Grof and Alex Gray in their open source Soros fundamentals have done more damage and created unbearable marxist idiots, running the streets breaking windows for Gaia. Creating the religion of Aya. And throwing gasoline on the “sky is falling.” hoax.

      A Wizard of ‘IS’ if there ever was any at all. One of those fools who are pro Universal income. No thanks none for me. 

      “Taking the infinite by storm”, that’s what it is about man, we are supposed to consume it, we are meant to storm the gates of heaven take it, if need, by force. As individuals we must dream the largest of dreams. 

      Do I want to own the planet, of course I do; Do I want to own the universe, fuck yeah, that would be the ultimate material experience. But that’s it; a material experience.

      A possible end of that paragraph of implied fear and mediocrity, would be…

      And then maybe this boring old movie called reality will quit endlessly cycling through paradigm after paradigm. And will finally create an individual and he will imagine the universe to match himself, the one he wants and the one he deeply desires.

      Take your foot of the brake and step on the gas…floor it.

  6. Unfortunately, Jon, the universe is viewed from mundane Earth bound perceptions/perspectives myopic sciences decide suits their purposes devoted to some sort of “greater good”. Hence the die is cast in one direction with uniform inflexibility.

    Humanity wears the straightjacket.
