The decade of the 2020s is poised to be a pivotal moment in human history, a time of apocalypse and chaos as our familiar but sick civilization collapses and a new order claims to rule over the world. Most of us were taken by surprise in 2020, but what is unfolding today has been, in fact, in preparation for a very long time. And behind hyper-materialistic technological appearances it is rooted in religion as a system - a system that flies under the radar of what 'religion' is commonly perceived to be by both religious and non-religious people.
Religion is overwhelmingly understood to be a matter of spirituality. But who is prepared to see 'spirituality' in the blatantly 'religious' behavior of our modern secular institutions of money and science - complete with dogmas, infallible high priests and people's blind faith in them?
This piece of cognitive dissonance is far from trivial. It demands urgent elucidation. Scratching below its surface, you embark on a terrifying journey into the genesis and growth, modalities and purposes of organized 'religion' as a sophisticated tool of priestly control over humanity through fear, guilt and many facets of profound poverty, perfected over millennia, deploying its endgame... right now. Have you given any 'informed consent' to the religion of a post-human future run by ruthless high priests in sacrifice of all-of-life to an all-devouring god?
'Religion' in its complexity is considered here from different angles largely unexplored by critical observers - the perspective of the common folk, the position of gods and priests, the Life expression of Earth and Nature, and the view from 'somewhere beyond the gods'. Anthropology of traditional cultures and grassroots esoterics is woven in with history, insights from beyond 3D, and the real meanings of words, to decipher the occulted identity of gods and their religions. Masters and systems of deceitful theft, with intensely sacrificial machineries, have operated for thousands of years at the expense of the natural culture and inspiration of richly human economies, the wealth of Nature, and of all of life.
This book is for anyone who wonders where humanity and our planet are headed, who may be in fear and helplessness under the onslaught of cumulative crises. It is for those who sense that the very essence of being-human is under attack by disproportionately more powerful forces. It is for those who wonder (or have already found) what is their role in the unfolding drama, and who know that for a future built on truth it is necessary to know and dissolve the lies of the past and the present.
Understanding 'the long game of the gods' is a crucial key to reclaiming what it is to be human in the fullest sense of your soul-full and creative calling on this extraordinary Earth planet. And we still find traces of truly Human traditions to provide clues into what might well be the 'long game of humanity'.
