Maybe that's all Bob is, the evil that men do. Maybe it doesn't matter what we call it.

For those not familiar with the history of the Hermetic Lessons it is a record of the lessons that I have learned and freely share to those who care to read. These lessons started with a focus on a biochemical qabalah with roots in physiognomy around 1995, and moving through ''esoteric genetics'', Sefer Yetzirah study and my experiences in the Tower eventually lead to a focus on approaches to time travel. Speaking to this, prediction seems to me more difficult than Captain Hindsight-ery, and I relish that difficulty and I also don't mind being wrong. It has happened, I admit. I have been wrong in this life. If I had been wrong over and over again I would stop because it descends into foolishness but I've been right enough to continue to explore the limits. Over the years I have employed a variety of different approaches to unravel mystical secrets - mixed Qabalah, various operations of the demonic logic of magic, advanced planetary alchemy, divination, meditation, astral projection, remote viewing, angelic conduits to the intuition, etc, etc and so forth. And, over the years I've been happy with the results. I've had my worldview turned upside down more than once and each time new dimensions of reality and possibility open up before me. If time travel is possible, then it will happen, therefore it already has.
The real leap for me this year and in 2019, was in the idea of ''Unifying Colour Producers'' operating behind the scenes in society in roles such as Behavioural Science and the extent to which it was possible to stick to some kind of ''calendar of events'' in the real world, a kind of global four act structure. The test for that was how well the extension of the ''Unifying Colour Theory'' to ''the Inverse Tree of Hell'' was going to match over to the ''narratives'' deployed in the real world as opposed to the movies. I asked the question - as 2019 (Malkuth) was the end of the Unifying Colour Theory as applied to the decade, in 2020 would the world be taken over by Lilith? And by extension would the colours of Malkuth, and all they imply, go backwards in Lilith?
Most of you know the answer by now.
WHAT I GOT WRONG
- No ''Cat.6 hurricane'' but 2020 was worst hurricane season on record
- No food crisis but food security is a huge problem now and prices have drastically increased in the UK, food crisis is looming
- No dollar collapse but more public debt created than in WWII and for the UK economy deepest recession for 400 years so financial crises are deepening
- No direct public admission of the necessity for solar radiation management (chemtrails) but this was announced to intelligentsia
- No devastating volcanic eruption but continuous global fires
- No major algal event but algae used in signaling for Green Phase along with whole Elephant mystery
- No substantial ecoterrorism but #IamGreta, Greta vs Trump narrative, etc
- No massive extension of the Northern Lights in an auroral event but cool pink aurorae at end of Green Phase, i.e. Northern Lights were ''de-greened''
- No attack on Venezuela
Overall I am happy with these predictions being wrong as they were stated in the posts as being outlandish interpretations of the underlying theory although we can see that some parts of the Year clearly pushed towards or signaled these as possibilities.
WHAT I GOT RIGHT
- As Lilith is Demon of the Evil Winds, that 2020 would be the worse for storms on record
- Reduction in global dimming from grounding planes would cause environmental whiplash which would intensify the effects of global heating
- The environmental effects would be associated with the element of the phase
- Massive restructuring of society along eco-capitalist lines - #buildbackbetter, China's carbon targets, #greennewdeal'', etc - eco-propanganda focused in ''Green Phase'', that de-greening meant destroying jobs and the economy, ''less green in the wallet''
- Lilifluenza would mutate to become airborne in the air or yellow phase and there would be accompanying conversations about mutations, new variants etc ''Andromeda'' signalling
- Lilith would continue to be reclaimed by witches/feminists (?) as a symbol of their power - see #medusatoo
- The reverse psychology of lockdown would bottle people up with their shadows (Nigredo, Black Phase) and prompt attacks on the ''other'' - painful syncs here with #blm - hiding the face is part of this
- The movies largely stayed in line with the expected reversed sequence of colours e.g. ''Greenland'', ''WWII1984'', but there will be some foul-ups in the production line next year Ghostbusters III, etc, some of this has been righted already by streaming channels but we should expect the streaming channels to be more in synch than certain studios at the beginning of the year as they recover from this kink in their lines
- ''Psychological'' colour-coding of ''Green Zone '' and ''Yellow Zone'' but with reverse effects i.e. de-greening which lead into yellow, and then de-yellowing as lead into amber and red
- That ''de-yellowing'' implied the decline of Trump and Johnson, and populism in general
- That the overall reverse psychological process would mirror Joker in reverse i.e. the diminishing of individual expression and the rise of herd compliance - this slip from Trump is worth looking at in that respect
- Lots of ''set-dressing'' in each of the phase tied to the colours (some of these observations are more open to the accusation of confirmation bias, some far less so)
- People being body-snatched by their digital selves - this is a more schizoid line of thinking that a lot of you will not want to entertain, suffice to say that that happened as well and was inevitable because of the sheer amount of time that people were spending online - for close readers this was implied at the end of 2019 as the idea of the progression of a unity in the self 2010 to a multiplicity of self by 2019 (2010-2019, The Tree of Life) and a divided or body-snatched self in 2020 (2020-2029, The Tree of Hell)
Where I want to go is not the same as where you want to go. I am a weird person. My goals are eccentric. If the magus is the X axis and sorcerer is the Y then I am trying to wiZard. One is extending their tower to touch the heavens, the other is trying to broaden the area they dominate, and I am trying to move sideways through time. The hard problem of magic and ego-consciousness that comes from wizardry is a theory of time travel, a theory of ''anti-time'', which on close inspection is a theory of anti-magic. None of this squats particularly easily within ''me'' but squat it does. Power does not equal truth.
Any entertainer has to ask themselves why they do what they do - do they do it for art, for message, for money, for attention, for love? In all of those things there has to be an overlap in the Venn diagram of where I go and where you go or you'll stop reading and that is fair enough. Hopefully you enjoy having some of your parameters stretched and I promise you I will not pander to you. Nobody likes a panderer. I'm stuck in the middle with you and there is an abundance of sycophantic clowns and malevolent jokers. You don't need another one.
Where we are all going is into 2021 and right now none of us can change that. When picking my plays I try to think about what I want to do, what the audience want to see, and what we all need to see. We all want power but what we need is truth. What will be true for 2021 and how can we customize our response to maintain perfect courage in the face of the ensuing tribulations? As it is highly likely we are about to witness a fairly surreal and grotesque display, as Gomaliel manifests, 2021 will be more about mental health than physical health. Even if 2020 was about mental health for many of us it was mainly about the physical side of maintaining mental health. The reality is that 2020 was the trauma and 2021 and a few years after will be post-traumatic. My neighbor hasn't had a sense of smell or taste for three months because of long-covid for example - this may seem like a minor example compared to many horror stories we could all share but even these minor traumas aggregate in society. As a mystic I have to recommend a mystical hero's path and the one I will follow and explore through a series of devices will be a kind of Moon-based quantum stoic hyper-minimalism. If that already sounds pretentious to you I can guarantee you that it will be but that doesn't stop hyper-minimal moon base quantum stoicism being the best way to tackle the Obscenity that is 2021. If it isn't pretentious then it isn't wizardry.
