The Internet was conceived from nothing. It was pulled from the darkness and brought into being. It is objective because it exists as data on a server. People interact with it subjectively–by doing this, however, they can also affect realities outside of it objectively. Whenever a source of reality is interacted with in this way, it’s a magical working whether those involved with that process realize it or not. This is accomplished through the power of words and the influence they have on people.
Because the internet is a reality separate from our own, does that prove that other realms of reality have the possibility of existence? Yes, because it was conceived from the darkness. Therefore other realities can also be conceived and channeled from that same darkness. Magicians have been accomplishing this for several millennia before the inception of the internet.
Many aspects of ancient religions such as Greco-Egyptian Hermeticism, were quietly killed off by its enemies because they recognized the power of the word. Some aspects of it were silently absorbed into Western thought by the people who engineered it. The aspects those engineers wanted to erase from the consciousness of history were strategically omitted.
Unfortunately what they didn’t realize is that the knowledge they omitted from Western thought would resurface again in the postmodern world. The rise of the western world’s awareness to the concepts of cyber-bullying, mass hackings to expose hidden knowledge (see the hacking of Sony late last year), cyber-terrorism, propaganda, and the dissemination of world breaking information occurring within the liminal space of the web proves that the consciousnesses of the individuals using it are at war with one another.
History is repeating itself again. The so-called Wild West of the World Wide Web is coming to a close. People can no longer say the things they want to say. Or at least that’s what they are conditioned to believe. Many resort to passive-aggressiveness. This is accomplished in the form of self-censorship. People subconsciously do this because they fear what effect honest words might have on the consciousness of an individual that they may be at war with.
The power of the word is strong because it can force people to cause change “in real life.” The best example of “real world” change is how people interact with each other in reality outside of the web. If you’re told to “go kill yourself” as a thirteen year old on the post-millennial internet, you might take it seriously. Most people call that cyber-bullying, I call it a misunderstanding of how powerful words can be.
Warring Consciounesses. Parallel realities effecting one another. Words springing people into action. The Internet is a living forum for all of this, and that forum is growing–exponentially.
The Living Internet demands growth. Because the Living Internet demands growth, it is evolving. The Living Internet is never in stasis.
