This is the most important blog I have written. I have struggled to try and decide how to write about it and I realize that I shouldn't make it too long. (It took me 6 months to write the Are You Conscious Series which was propably too long for anyone to really read)
You will need to watch the video below to understand this blog.
Here we go.
In the past, I spent a lot of time thinking about fractal numbers and what I call fractal intelligence as a way of seeing the world. (see the Mandelbrot set)
This is a very extensive topic that I will not dive into now but I also wanted to make sense of what is commonly referred to as God. After looking into many religions and their history, I could best be described as a modern Gnostic, as I am drawn to the core concepts of gnosticism. Here are some examples of my views:
Looking at life through a dualistic lens - seeing the necessity of dark to create light and light to create dark as opposed to concrete good and evil.
Viewing good and evil as knowledge and ignorance as opposed to sin in the traditional Christian sense.
Self-actualization and the recognition of a higher knowledge that is a knowing that is beyond intellectual and is best described as remembering.
Viewing the traditional Christian god of the Old Testament as a lower deity (referred to as the demiurge in some circles) that withheld knowledge from Adam and Eve and was a creator god lesser than the absolute deity of all creation. This explains the need for blood sacrifices and worship that never made any sense to me as a child learning about a loving god that would make people with a sinful nature and then eternally condemn them to hell.
I could go on as all these concepts are very obscure, but will move on. I will now share the way I have been able to try and make sense of "god." This came to me as a realization a few years ago and was nothing I had been taught.
I will use numbers to explain. Many look at numbers as a core truth; a language discovered, not invented, and that numbers themselves have a personality. Historically, mathematicians struggled to find the end of numbers, or the end of infinity just to find another level of infinity (some went crazy).
To make sense of the infinite potential expressions of the divine, we will look at infinite numerical expressions. This addresses the gnostic idea of a divine spark of every living thing containing a piece of the divine (If you have followed my blog this would be subatomics or electromagnetism at the core of a person ....the electron.)
1,863,468, 213 or any other number above 9 can be reduced to 9 or a lower single digit. This is called the digital root. So numbers 0-9 are the core digital root numbers. When I say reduced instead of taking the number bigger you add the numbers together to break it down. For example: 16 would be 1+6 = 7, so 7 is the digital root of 16. Since 7 is a single digit, it can not be reduced down any further.
Now that we have condensed the infinite set of numerical expressions to 0-9, it is important to note that all these root numbers are archetypes each with their own positive and negative aspects. They all must exist. I call 0-9 the archetypes of God, or the aspects of God. I could spend hours breaking this down but I will try to be concise.
9 - The absolute high god. This is the all, or the void. No personality, pure energy, pure information. Nine is the biggest single root digit and the most powerful. All numbers are reduced to a digital root under 9 or consumed by 9. (See 3-6-9 code video at the beginning of this blog.)
8 - We'll come back to this.
7 - This would be the archetype of good, or of positive aspects. It is essentially the Christ archetype; not the person but the personification of the archetype of good.
9-7 Exist in the spiritual realm (the quantum space).
5-6 are the earthly archetypes.
6 - This would be the false god. The judge god depicted as the god of the Old Testament and the ruler of the earthly realm. Six is the judge god as well as the god of time and order ( also referred to as Chronos, father time, Saturn, which is where we get the phonetic Satan). The 6 requires much explanation and is shown as the six pointed star or the six-sided cube. Six is literally a n upside-down nine and is masquerading as the 9 (the true high god) where it can get away with it, here on earth.
5 - The archetype of chaos, the trickster, the joker/jester, or the character of Lucifer: the false light barer. Five represents the lie. It's symbol is the 5-pointed star.
0-4 could be said to exist inside your head in a sense. They are the individual, or human archetypes.
4 - Four represents the observer. The all seeing eye; the one watching this story play out.
3 - The judge of the mind; the one who governs the conversation inside your head.
2- Represents dualism and is the number created when 0 and 1 merge together as 0 and 1 are 2 numbers.
1- The masculine or yang archetype. The one is phallic and can be seen in many symbols including the insertion of the 1 into the zero as an on button symbol (see below).
0 - The feminine archetype. The field or canvas, magnetism, the field that life resides in, or the egg. It often gets no recognition but is the foundation of the 0-9 and all life itself.
The story of the 7 (Christ archetype) is that the 7 comes down from heaven, conquers fear (the 5) and death (the 6), merges with the 0 and 1 and then ascends back up to heaven to sit at the right hand of God (the nine).
When you combine 7+1+0 you get 8. Eight is also an infinity symbol.
Using this simple 0-9 number sequence I can explain most core concepts of various religions that have wrongly taken this literally. I can explain the symbols and concepts that define our being. I can address the problem of evil and the confusion over the god of sacrifice and blood in the Old Testament that claimed to be the 9 (but was really the 6), and fooled many religions. This is why religions often end up killing each other. They are really worshiping a god of sacrifice and are unaware it is not the highest god.
Every good story has these characters or archetypes in them. I have taken some notes on this in the past. You can check them out HERE.
This is a very brief explanation that should probably require a book to explain all the history, symbols, planets, etc. that validate this simple number line as a way of making sense of the unknowable.

As the world seems to be spinning out of control my simple life is getting very enjoyable. I am now in a place that has seasons, which I love. Health has everything to do with your environment and supporting your body's ability to know where it is in space and time so it can respond properly. The weather has shifted here. We've had a few morning frosts and the leaves are starting to turn colors. We just fired up our wood stove for the first time and it was fantastic.
There are several things I am doing differently in this new season. I'm shifting away from sugar and fruit. I will continue to reduce my carbs as the season changes. I am eating more root vegetables. I keep eating local meats from the amazing little local farm nearby, fresh local eggs, and salmon. Steel cut oats and blueberries are some of the only carbs I'll be consuming over the fall. The first key is to eat as natural and local as possible, staying away from fake food with lots of unnecessary ingredients. Eating simplistically. What we buy at the grocery store is very limited. I can't believe how much processed, boxed food people consume. Chips and pop are the first items to fly off the shelf here. I made a soup the other day from a squash our neighbor grew in his backyard along with some carrots and a yam. It was simplistically delicious. These are the types of carbs I plan on consuming as the season gets colder.
Getting out in nature daily is also key. I recently found a huge stretch of forest on a nearby property with large paths and open fields that is great for walks and throwing the frisbee with our puppy. No matter where you are, make it a priority to get out in nature. Take daily walks in your environment. I want my system to be exposed to the changing seasons so that when winter comes I am properly cold adapted and my body knows what time it is and what to do.
The only supplements I'm really focused on are mushrooms, beef liver capsules, kelp, fish oil, and vitamin C. I have found that as long as my diet is on point I don't get jazzed about supplements anymore. I worked in the supplement industry for many years, so I heard all the big exciting ads and learned over time that most of it is irrelevant to actual health. Especially products with proprietary blends of a ton of different ingredients. Truth is , it's mostly hype and the removal of chemicals, addictive substances, and processed foods along with sleep and nature is far better than any supplement.
I do feel obligated to mention that I have now been off caffeine (except for dark chocolate which is a food and not a liquid caffeine extract like tea or coffee) for well over a year now. This has been a huge accomplishment for me and it's amazing how much better my system has been able to cope with stress. It was very hard to get off and the withdrawals were terrible but I highly recommend it in this time of immense stress, along with weed, alcohol and anything else that gives you a fix or benefit on the front with a price to be paid on the back. These are all credit card type substances; meaning you can get what you want now but can't avoid paying the interest forever. I see a lot of people who have maxed out their limits with these credit card substances, so to speak.
The coffee culture along with processed sugar and alcohol fuels the world. I know there's a lot of misinformation out there spinning things to validate almost any substance of choice, but the fact is that if you are stressed, caffeine is a stressor as a stimulant that spikes dopamine. Access dopamine converts to adrenaline. So the caffeinated world is getting stressed out while taking a drug that causes stress. If you have anxiety or sleep issues and are taking a drug that destroys both, that is your choice but I encourage you to contact me if you are looking to quit. I'm be happy to share my experience as a person who had anxiety for twenty years and drank coffee for twenty years and is now free of both.
I don't know if there have been any studies on the recovery of the nervous system form caffeine. From my perspective the hard withdrawals of body aches, depression, mood swings and what I would call neurochemistry issues (low dopamine not allowing my brain to click up to a fast thought speed) were difficult, but it over the past year my nervous system has recovered in ways that allow much deeper, restorative sleep. I am tuned into rest in a different way. Getting off caffeine has been a such a major contributor to my current state of well being.
Health has become very simple. I am amazed by the complexity of nature, magnetism, and so many things I see all around me like the trees and the animals. I see that you don't have to know quantum physics to embrace the simple idea that nature is where we come from and where our bodies thrive. I am very happy right now compared to what I have been in the past but am also working and working out a lot and my body composition is also changing. I'm focusing much more on developing my legs and back instead of the typical, mirror-facing muscles most guys target. I like the changes and have never been so healthy. I am so glad to have my magnetico sleep pad and to be in Ironwood, MI. I have no regrets about my move. It has been wonderful and it is good to finally be home.
