Only high quality redpills in this thread. Esoteric rabbit holes and life changing information only.

I'll start; some of this stuff I'm including in a book I'm almost done with.

1

Look into Bill Gaede. Probably one of the most important thinkers alive today, despite looking like a goofy crank.

https://youtu.be/Yhm9w4YTTx0

2

Look into Joseph Davidovits. He essentially points out that ancient megalithic structures are made with geopolymers aka a kind of artificial stone.

On The Slenderman Mysteries by Nick Redfern he talks about how the hermetic order of the golden dawn had this ritual where they worshipped a god, commonly from acient myths like the greeks of egyptians and when they felt they had the god's blessing they will get rid of everything they had for that god or to worship that god and will start a new with another god.
After Alister crowley's death the golden dawn introduced characters form the cthulu myths to this ritual, it sounds incredibly retarded but if the gods of acient cultures are not real then how is worshipping fictional copyrighted characters any different?
Alan Moore, the comic book writer has performed this ritual with characters of his own creaton and other comic book characters, he has vivid stories of stumbling upon them in real life.
Radfern makes the argument that society performed this ritual and that by believing tht Slenderman is a real mythological creature and not a meme we willed it into existence and so historical coincidences were reread as slenderman's history.

How is this related to Zizek's conception of ideology? We do not choose our ideologies, you can simply say 'I do not have any ideology" That is an ideology by itself. having the blassing of a god even if you know it doesn't exist is ideology in function, and magic is basically a symbolic act where you tell yourself that "you believe that you believe" and rewrite the ideological narrative that exists within you.

We're basically talking about chaos magic I think here anon.
Why worship gods from ancient cultures? Well because you either want to experience religious bliss, and/or you want to gain something materially, in which it would be more of an occult experiment.
Why ancient cultures, because this was when religion started. It's, to use a fictional example, like Dr. Who's TARDIS, it's got stuck as a Victorian police box. Similarly gods of the past have visual depictions, words in ancient languages, associated with them.

The only point to doing this with fictional characters would be if you're banking on it being effected through some sort of parapsychology means. As though the human mind has an ability in itself to effect changes that science hasn't discovered yet.

On the other hand if you worship gods from ancient cultures, whether they exist outside of the human mind or not is unprovable either way. But the source material is probably richer than that from comic books. So you're probably better off worshipping gods from ancient texts, rather than fictional characters
Most of the fictional characters are rehashed from religion anyway. Cthulu is a paranoid take on Caananite religion. You might as well go to source.

Even the ancients themselves didn't really set much store on belief as such, they thought if you did the ritual the gods would respond. Inner conviction or faith was really a Hebrew innovation.

>So ancient gods have a larger symbolic value and so better for said rituals?
As far as rituals go they seem like opportunists.
There's a bit in Gilgamesh. The epic contains a story-within-a-story, the story of Utnapishtim, an earlier Noah figure.
The gods have wiped out mankind in a flood, but in doing so they've cut off their supply of sacrifices.
So when Utnapishtim who's been tipped off by one of the gods and made a boat makes a burnt offering on finding dry land, as the text says they descend
<like flies
5,000 years ago science wasn't seperate from religion. It was kind of do this, and see what result follows. Including the use of ritual and sacrifices.
A lot of them are probably redundant. There might have been some use in examinining a sheep's liver for signs and portents of disaster . If the soil is crap, then it would result in both a higher average of weird organ deformities, and disasters like crops failing. But it's a very indirect method compared to modern science.
But ritual is probably still good for things that require inspiration.

What are aliens actually like?
IMO Lovecraft is probably the most plausible take. Aliens are from another environment and evolved for different conditions. There are probably similar forces shaping their evolution, but they followed a very different path. Additionally any that could travel to meet us probably have technology we don't understand. This would mean that the aliens are going to be very alien to us and probably confusing and disorienting at a fundamental level. Maybe it wouldn't drive us insane, but we probably would have trouble making sense of them. Even fairly innocuous stuff here on earth where we evolved manages to confuse our monkey brains.

This is a fair take, we can barely comprehend our own rock, but I still like to believe there might be some alien life out there that would seem familiar even if its extremely well alien for a lack of better term.

Aliens that have been space faring for a very long time will have convergent evolution, because they would all try to adapt their physiology to the same environment in space at least to some extend. I would imagine that space aliens would get tired of immediately dying when exposed to hard vacuum, or getting major health problems from zero gravity.

>alien technology we don't understand.

Science and technology development will be similar for all species because they all have to work with the same fundamental building blocks of reality. If these aliens are not fundamentally more intelligent than humans and just further along on more or less the same technology ladder, than it would be like somebody from a few thousand years ago seeing modern technology. Very confusing, only for a while.

>we probably would have trouble making sense of them

yeah communication would probably limited, they probably have invented very similar math tho.

Really ? Popular culture has had a lot of Aliens for a long time, so it's not like people haven't been confronted with the idea.

>Go outside one night to take the dog out to go piss in the yard. It was a chilling night, the cold air was sharp but crisp. Staring aimlessly into the moonless night as the stars seem quite bright. While waiting for the dog to finish up doing his thing so we could go back inside.

>Something seemed a miss that night. It felt as if time had stopped as the eerie silence settled. A cold chill running down my back one that was much colder than the air around having been wearing jacket. The hair on the back of my neck stood up as the goosebumps was real. Something was not right but I could not figure out what it could have been. Breaking the Silence the dog was barking out into the darkness of the woods behind the house.


>With phone in hand, I left the porch to go towards where the dog was turning on the flash light on the phone to investigate. From where we stood there was nothing. But that did not stop my fight or flight response to kick in. Getting pumped with adrenaline to make my decision. Patting the dog I would say, "ITs alright Lucky, whatever is there can't get us."


>That was the lie I told myself, gulping as Lucky continued to growl into the darkness. He appeared afraid from what was in the woods but kept barking and growling none the less. It was that point where something seemed to have moved causing Lucky to run off deeper into the woods. I called out to him "Lucky come back here!" the fear almost cemented me in place. My legs felt heavy as I tried to make a move forward. The way my heart raced I felt as if I was going to be sick wanting to beat out of my chest.


>Mustering the courage I followed after him, using my phone's flash light to follow the tracks. I had a general idea of where he had gone just from the loud barks that echoed and bounced off the trees. Reaching down for a sturdy stick, to have in hand, it was not much but I couldn't turn back and leave the dog to whatever was out here. My mind raced the mistakes I was about to make this night and how I should have not gone into those woods.


>A bright light illuminated the woods ahead. It lit up the darkness of the woods and the shadows casted one of which was Lucky's picking up the pace. Then appeared two humanoid figures their shadows elongated from the shadows, this was

you are correct that it's not literal biblical belief of sainthood, but to be fair there are several churches that have Stalin iconized as a saint and placed up for worship, so take that as you will.

Fr.Yevstafy Zhakov, pastor of St. Olga Strel'na near St. Petersburg caused uproar after he hung a portrait of the dictator among other sacred images. "I remember him on appropriate occasions - the priest had declared- the day of his birthday, his death and that of Victory (World War II, ed.) He was a true believer”.
The Patriarchate of the Orthodox Church later forced him to remove the portrait.

It's like a popular saint, something also done by some catholics. For example in Bolivia, particularly where Che was executed some of the villagers there revere him like a saint, but of course the Catholic Church would never canonize Che. Some people in Venezuela and Colombia also do the same with Chavez and Pablo Escobar apparently from what I've seen.

What's most interesting about the cases of Stalin and Che is that they're considered saints by these people but neither Stalin or Che were religious. Chavez for example at least was a catholic.

Articles like these are so hilarious. It's amazing how dumb the people who write them are, how poor their imaginations are. You have an alien race that travels the galaxies, but they keep an alien on lookout duty like it's some 1950s gangster movie. And why do these aliens need to be there in person? Why not just do a zoom call with Eisenhower or something? Why does he need to go away for an entire day?
And most of the people who claim to have seen UFOs will say they had lots of blinking lights, which for some bizarre reason indicates advanced technology in every old retarded sci-fi movie.
I can tolerate a lot of retarded conspiracy, but alienfags really are the dumbest bunch out there.

Also I know there's games like XCOM that have nods to irl alien sightings. But where's the vidya with eg. MOTHMAN? It's depressing that there's more games about spoopy internet meme creations than there is about actual mysterious things that have been sighted that in some cases have become local folklore.
