Have been taking ant essence in this formulation for about two months now and have to recommend it! So far deer antler and evening primrose oil have helped me through this female phase, on top of all the other natural remedies I do including natural progesterone cream, melatonin, ubiquinol and immortal molecules. It was the dang gui in the formulation that I had heard was especially good for women but now I am really keen on the whole combination of herbs. As usual, I still feel like I have the energy levels of my twenties, although of course I want to expend that energy in different ways now to how I did them! When for some reason I stop taking my supplements for a few days I really notice the difference and then appreciate their value in my life a whole lot more. I am loving feeling so much warmer than I used to and being able to therefore enjoy the beauty of winter in northern places so much more, and to go intrepidly into windy terrains when most people are indoors. Anyway, I digress...
Ant essence is very rich in zinc which all of us tend to lack due to soil deficiencies. It is particularly crucial for growing boys and also men.
John Lash - Kalika War Party: Reemergence of the Warrior Class
John Lash has been a regular guest on Red Ice Radio since 2008, sharing the discoveries of his collective studies in the fields of directive and sidereal mythology, naked-eye astronomy, precession, the World Ages, belief systems, and his radical revision of Gnosticism. He has also delved deeply into the sacred story of Gaia-Sophia and introduced the term Archon to the discourse of humanity. Mr. Lash returns to the program to announce the formation of the Kalika War Party, a band of self-selected men and women volunteers whose goal is “to strike offensively against all variations of the evil and corrupt system that works against life, truth, freedom, beauty, sanity, and the spirit of mutual aid.” John explains how his exploration of the Parsifal myth and the Holy Grail question, “What ails thee?” led him to conceive of the KWP entity. We consider the wounded species of humanity and the suffering caused by the psychopaths who are leading our world to demise. Then, John describes how the use of magic and shamanism will shape the operations of the KWP, and reminds us of the true abilities of the shaman, which can be to heal as well as eliminate. Later, John gets into the social evils of mind control, the domestication and pacification of humanity in the name of Christianity, the elite’s control of the narrative, and the gruesome, murderous, destructive attacks that have been carried out by the USA and those who control it, against all living beings and the earth itself. Then, John talks about the meaning of the Thunderbird Formation, the symbol for the KWP, and the reemergence of the Warrior Class. At the end, we examine the true violent tendencies of man, the popularity of war games, and the inevitable downfall of feminism.

'...What if She set up this experiment so that no single human subject can reach complete happiness—first of all She set it up that complete happiness for every single human animal is possible. But She set it up so that each individual can only reach complete happiness through and will the happiness of all others. Except those others who chose to dwell in their own unhappiness. See that qualification and why that qualification? I don’t think I have to elaborate; I think I did it fairly well.
Now, think about it. Reflect on it, because I am reflecting on it myself. And I am reflecting on, first of all, is that qualification valid? Look around you. You can or cannot do something about the uhappiness that comes from comes from the way people treat you—certainly if you are a woman and in an abusive relationship. Or if you a man and in an abusive, manipulative relationship that makes you unhappy. If you want to go a little further you can say you allow yourself to be unhappy, as you are affected by the behavior of that person, but still the unhappiness is due to treatment. Let’s not dismiss this point. Humans animals do not treat each other in ways to foster happiness. But at the same time, just consider with me that it may be impossible to do anything about people who dwell in their own unhappiness. So it’s some kind of qualification here and at some point, say if we are in a community of say 500 people and I share happiness with you and we are happy together and we do not mistreat each other in any way that would cause unhappiness, that would be a wonderful situation. But could we still do something about people who dwell in unhappiness, see what I mean?
So I don’t think… I’m not sure that the experiment was designed in such a way that the power of happiness as a synergism of happiness—joy, delight, freedom—would raise every human animal to the same level of happiness, but it would certainly make it possible for every human animal to achieve that level. That’s the second strand of Her code.
Now we come to the third strand and that involves the question, ‘how subjective is this experiment?” Or to put it in a more elaborate syntax—how subjective is the interactivity of a subject with the objective process of the experiment? You know that question brings to mind you know what. Good ol’Werner Heisenberg—and the Copenhagen School of Physics, blah, blah, blah. Now this is a chapter of history of physics which is a deplorable and disgusting record of fraudulence and ignorance as far as I’m concerned—but it’s an important chapter. Because there was Werner Heisenberg—I think it was in the 30’s—having discussions with Albert Einstein about who knows what—and among those discussions came up the subject of uncertainty.
So what is Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle? Well you know, don’t you: that the act of observation alters the process being observed. Now take a close look that: look at the language. The act of observation alters the process being observed. Now what does the proposition imply regarding this experiment? It implies that there are two components: the process being observed—which is the experiment itself—and the act of observation. But who is at the source of the act of observation? Well it’s the observer.
Now the syntax of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle doesn’t really state the observer. I could restate it in this way; the process of observation conducted by an observer alters the process being observed. That’s a much better syntax, and in that syntax, there are two clear interactive components: the observer and the process being observed.
Now I would ask you to let’s take one more step—and reframe Heisenberg’s principle so it becomes a more complete, inclusive, holistic proposition. Because if the act of observation conducted by the observer can alter the process being observed—then why can’t the process being observed alter the observer? It’s a 2-way interaction. The process being observed—which is the phenomenon of the natural world in which the human subject is inserted—can certainly be affected by the observer. But likewise, the observer can be affected by the process. The observer is not neutral.
So what we want to do is tease out the 3rd strand of Her code by modifying the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.
Now shamans in a telestic method of the mysteries certainly understood both sides of this principle—anyone who undergoes an altered state or enters heightened perception through the use of sacred plant teachers will understand the proposition of Heisenberg in the reformulation I just proposed. The first thing that happens to you in these experiences of heightened perception is that you—the observer—are altered by what you observe. See that part is left out of Heisenberg’s proposition, isn’t it? (chuckle). That’s the problem with science.
But to the degree you surrender in ecstatic emersion to what you observe—to the degree that you can allow it to alter you—which it does by seizing you in an ecstatic manner—then you also claim your capacity to alter it—and that is your entry into the super real. It has to be both.
So the 3rd incline-the third proposition—is developing in your mind and mine right now, from this briefing on, it is developing in that manner and along those lines.
Can you see the doubling; the feature of doubling in the syntax? Where Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle has to be modified? The act of observation conducted by an observer alters the process being observed just as the process being observed alters the observer. This is an Idris principle—this is an Idris principle and it is an initial strand of code in the syntax of Her dreaming. So I look forward to developing this strand with you as we proceed.
And in concluding this briefing I want to assure you of something. And this is a most wonderful truth. I can attest to this truth out of my depth of my experience as a seeker and a shaman. This is one thing I’ve learned that is gloriously, fantastically wonderful.
When it comes to the content of Her dreaming—any human animal…any human individual…any human mind… can only learn so much. Even if you’re a polymath—even if you are like Goethe—who was a polymath naturalist who explored morphogenesis plants—who explored light theory—Goethe’s theory of color—who explored the formation of human bones—and other things—even if you are of that nature—there is only so much that one human can learn about the processes of the natural world content of Her dreaming. Now you can learn how water works…you can learn what are the properties of aloe vera—you could spend your whole life just learning what the properties of aloe vera are. Suppose you became a botanist and learned the properties of 200 plants—this would be fucking miraculous—but the bounty and complexity of the content of Her dreaming is so vast, that each human can only learn a sliver of it.
But when it comes to learning the syntax of Her dreaming, you can learn it all. All. In fact, that’s what you’re in the process of doing as you hear me speak these words. Those today in planetary tantra who undertake this commitment to learn the syntax of Her dreaming and reach the super real can learn it all; hence the gnostics were called ‘those who knew all’. Do you see that? Doesn’t mean they knew all there was to know about the natural world and the starry worlds—no. They knew a lot about the natural world and the starry worlds—and they knew it, baby—in granular detail—but when you apply that definition—those who knew the all—you need to understand what ‘the all’ is—and it’s the totality of the syntax of Her dreaming.
And I can guarantee you that it is simplific. This is a word that I love this word. And I invented this word when I was teaching a class in Santa Fe. Not ‘simplistic’—‘simplific’. Simplific The syntax of Her dreaming when you know it—is simplific. It is the essence of simplicity but it is not simple.
This interview really warms up and a fascinating subject area is covered including the significance of particular serotonin receptor sites and a meaningful discussion of the entheogens with regard to human potential. I have a sightly different understanding of the timeline and unfolding of the human story and less enthusiasm for religion but the discussion here is high;y relevant to the human predicament. I sense that our initial initiation into entheagenic consciousness was through our connection with fruit trees and that later other species such as mushrooms helped partially reawaken this. I can't remember whether it was on this audio or just around the same time that I heard the remark that alcohol is the ultimate anti-entheagen. An interesting comment I feel; for me alcohol in any quantity beyond the small amounts that occur naturally in the matrix of a plant ferment disturb the connection that is sustained by an entheagenic diet.
"There's some universal human values that are programmed into our species that emerge when people use these medicines again...medicines don't necessarily give you that rather they decondition things that have been overriding that message...what seems to emerge is a world view similar to the ancient world" Daniel Vitalis
"We have a rich repository of receptors for these substances and we even produce some of the substances seemingly for no other purpose than to elicit these experiences which says something very fundamental about ho we need to remember we are" Nora Gedgaudas
Note on entheagen from Frank Mc Eowen The Spiral of Magic and Belonging: A Celtic Path of Soul and Kinship: 'Entheogen literally means "revealer of the God within" and I propose that entheagen "the Goddess within" could also be used.'
