Frater X is an author of both speculative fiction and critical research. He is a lecturer of esoteric philosophies, occult sciences and mystery traditions and a member of 9 different esoteric orders including the Knights Templar, Knight Masons, Order of the Sword of Bunker Hill, Masonic Rosicrucians and the Ancient Order of Druids. Frater X is considered a prolific analyst and commentator among his Masonic peers. In the first hour, we discuss the war on human perception. Is war human nature? Is it natural or unnatural the way humans organize and strive for resources? Then, Frater X puts forth his view on how the US military was born and rose up to be. He'll also talk about how the war on human consciousness uses the compulsory schooling system and requires the homogenization of humanity. In the second hour, Frater X presents ideas on how to break free of control. He expands on VALIS (Vast Active Living Intelligence System), Philip K. Dick's gnostic vision of one aspect of God. He'll speak about reconnecting with life on a deep level, finding the sacred in everyday life and exercising free will. Later, we discuss non-compliance through creative expression.
