Messenger of Dionysos · Mused by Apollo

In ancient times, Satyr was the horned and horny messenger of Eleusinian forest god Dionysos. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute and made them dance till broad daylight. In our common present, the spirit of Satyr inhabits the body of a human boy. Searching for a new way to spread the vibe of the forest, Satyr switched to SL and CDJ instruments, which fit the job quite nicely.

Illuminatus Pentakismegistus

May 1st, 2015 - In our common present it seems ...
one can neither scroll down a single page on internet, nor turn another without finding a finger vigorously pointing out the one and only guilty party, the perennial perp to take full blame for everything-gone-wrong-in-daily-life.

One can neither use a rising Sun, a simplified Sun, a stylized Sun, a winged sun disk, a Sun disguised as a whirlpool, as a quartered circle, as a bicycle, as a bird, as a plane, as the shell of Saint James, nor can one employ the eyes of Horus, an eye in a triangle, any triangle or triangular shape, a star shape, a square shape, or a depiction of either Athena or Minerva, with or without her pet owl, as symbols, for either artistic, personal, political, professional, business or other purposes;
one can neither write, produce and/or direct a fantasy movie about extraterrestrial origins of Life on Earth, nor can one star in a music video, wearing either neo-Gyptian or semi-Nude fashion, whilst covering one's right eye, folding both hands together to playfully make a pyramidal shape to look through with one eye, flashing other symbols, new and old;
one can neither oppose organized religion and resist the stranglehold it tends to exert on spiritual education and guidance, nor can one propose plans for a world government or aspire to share responsibility on a global scale by taking the next logical step to collectively organize things and happenings, upon considering the extent to which humanity slowly seems to develop and mature as one, to grow up and become a globe-hugging society in pursuit of liberty, equivalence and viciniternity;
one can neither join a decent lodge in order to become an honest to Reason, free and accepted mason, to build and accomplish the better of one's Self and of mankind, nor can one infiltrate one or create one's own inside the lodge to destroy human-progress-defying monsters from the inside out, ...
without risking to suffer one of the penultimate of public punishments of our times, namely: getting stamped on the head or stabbed in the back with a permanent tag, displaying the name of our favorite collection of ubiquitous bogeymen, the one, the only, the lone and lonely gunmen of all past, present and future history -insert ominous organ chord, loud and false- ... Illuminati. Better or worse yet:
the Illuminati.

Really now, if one cares to keep up with all modern media, interwoven throughout the world wide web and far beyond, spreading information, misinformation, disinformation, unformation, lies, newscasts and other generalized opinions around the globe, 24/7, like an insomniac central nervous system of contemporary culture, then it seems quite obvious, even to the oblivious, that the Illuminati do not even try to hide in plain sight anymore. Neither do they stalk the light from the shadows any longer, nor do they still lurk around every corner with old-fashioned stealth; nor do they watch over us, as silent as night, like blazing stars watching over a blue Moon; nor do we find them hiding behind the curtains, sticking out a helping hand on the stage of world affairs. Yet and rather, the choir agrees, do they rest restlessly, front and center, at the helm of SS Earth. From there they encompass the full extent of our terrestrial horizon, beholding it with that one good eye, wreathing humanity in the blinding Fires of Darkness, and all the while, performing one card trick after another, convincing the world an invisible, untouchable, inscrutable, unfathomable and most certainly inflammable entity bearing the name Illuminati actually does exist.

Pardon my Hicks ... but did I miss a meeting, or have we spontaneously decided to transform all metaphor into myth? And, winking to another Bill: did the last remnants of the Enlightenment just die out overnight, out like a brief candle, extinguishing both the light and its shadow, tired of disciplined fools who will not admit to the foolish, whilst deeming all the rest the genuine fools, spreading their tales full of noise and angst, anointing opinion as truth, as if truth, not fleeting but solid - yes, truth - not liquid but frozen, seems like an object to touch, a thing heard or told or smelled or seen, instead of experienced and shared, unspoken, in silence?

Doesn't anybody alive, or dead these days, both parents and children alike, enjoy a good, old-fashioned, terrifying yet terrific fairy tale bedtime story anymore? Or does that age-old tradition merely survive as a romantic fantasy, fallen victim to the slumberful power of popular lullabies, shown the door with a swipe of the wrist?

But as it goes with doors, so it does with books: when one closes, another one opens. Therefore, to clean the lens of our inner looking glass, in order to illuminate our Self a bit on the topic of Illuminati, let us turn to a page of Uncle Bob's classic, Cosmic Trigger:

"Briefly, the background of the Bavarian Illuminati puzzle is this. On May 1, 1776, in Bavaria, Dr. Adam Weishaupt, a professor of Canon Law at Ingolstadt University and a former Jesuit, formed a secret society called the Order of the Illuminati within the existing Masonic lodges of Germany. Since Masonry is itself a secret society, the Illuminati was a secret society within a secret society, a mystery inside a mystery, so to say. In 1785 the Illuminati were suppressed by the Bavarian government for allegedly plotting to overthrow all the kings in Europe and the Pope to boot. This much is generally agreed upon by all historians.

Everything else is a matter of heated,
and sometimes fetid, controversy.

It has been claimed that Dr. Weishaupt was an atheist, a Cabalistic magician, a rationalist, a mystic; a democrat, a socialist, an anarchist, a fascist; a Machiavellian amoralist, an alchemist, a totalitarian and an "enthusiastic philanthropist." (The last was the verdict of Thomas Jefferson, by the way.) The Illuminati have also been credited with managing the French and American revolutions behind the scenes, taking over the world, being the brains behind Communism, continuing underground up to the 1970s, secretly worshipping the Devil, and mopery with intent to gawk. Some claim that Weishaupt didn't even invent the Illuminati, but only revived it.

The Order of Illuminati has been traced back to the Knights Templar, to the Greek and Gnostic initiatory cults, to Egypt, even to Atlantis. The one safe generalization one can make is that Weishaupt's intent to maintain secrecy has worked; no two students of Illuminology have ever agreed totally about what the "inner secret" or purpose of the Order actually was (or is...).

There is endless room for spooky speculation, and for pedantic paranoia, once one really gets into the literature of the subject; and there has been a wave of sensational "ex-posés" of the Illuminati every generation since 1776. If you were to believe all this sensational literature, the damned Bavarian conspirators were responsible for everything wrong with the world*, including the energy crises and the fact that you can't even get a plumber on weekends."

- Cosmic Trigger, Robert Anton Wilson (1977)

* Of course, others other than us, some of us many of us prefer to refer to as THEY or THEM, should take the blame for everything wrong with the world as that or any other shape of responsibility does not fall in the lap of us simpletons. We rather look away, preferably up, to some kind of imaginative force - both good  and bad, benign as well as malignant - that rests outside and above our Self and seems to rule, down from the top, over every aspect of Life on Earth. In other words: we rather leave THEM in charge, instead of letting our Self take control.

The excerpt from Cosmic Trigger, quoted above, may provide a shred of an idea about Wilson's extensive studies of the historical background of the Illuminati. A mere shred, yet a useful shred, nevertheless. Those who care to read his work, seem well advised to hear him speak and gain a gauge on his intonation, before jumping in at the deep end without any foreknowledge of his ubridled wit. Then or other than that, dig up Illuminatus!, the book Wilson wrote in cooperation with Robert Shea. This may help - or not quite, perhaps - to understand how an omnipresent conspiracy of confidence trickery did rule over humanity, from our early beginnings up until and including today - did indeed or not quite, again, perhaps. To learn more about the Illuminati, the Illuminatus! trilogy may not seem like the best place to start, at first, but it certainly does come across as one of the most fun options of all times, so far. 

Then, of course, all of the ct talk linked throughout the first half of this scribbling, merely consists of favorite pastime conjectures cooked up by kooks, other than the Fool who wrote these very words under your nose, right here and now. Allow me to finish with a statement of my own, that could even acquire, after withstanding scrutinous screening, the peer-review-approved status of fact; a snippet of consensus reality, as a bottom line underneath all of the utter hogwash preceding this point in space, text and time:
East to West, cradle to grave, people have do and will conspire.
Backstabbing, bamboozling, betraying, bribing, cheating, colluding, complotting, deceiving, double-crossing, triple-crossing and other nefarious actvities seem like our favorite hobbies, quite apparent even when digging the least shallow bit into the past. The one and only, true and truly monolithic conspiracy throughout all of written history?
Man vs Man (and yes, that does include all of you, Ladies).

freakuently unanswered questions

? what is Satyr

! in ancient times, Satyr roamed the Eleusinian forests as the horned and horny messenger of Dionysos - the god of ritual intoxication. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute, and made them dance till broad daylight.

? where is Satyr

! in our recent past, Satyr reincarnated in the concrete jungle of Amsterdam as a DJ. At age ten, he recorded his first mix, displaying his love for early hip hop and electro, and soon his tapes were in high demand. After the Second Summer Of Love, he got turned on by new dimensions of synthetic sound and ventured into the realms of acid-house, techno and trance music.

? does he still play flute

! the Panflute has become an artefact in captivity, held safe and sound in the archeological archive of the Vatican. Yet, ever since the early 1990s, up and until our common present, Satyr became increasingly skilled as a player of the SL & CDJ instruments, spinning various styles of eclectronica and edm alike, embracing a wide range of the bpm spectrum with remarkable sparkle.

Difficult to pigeonhole yet sharply focused on and specialized in ambidelic chillout, psytrance, tech trance, uptech and several kinds of steps; entertaining events for 50 to 50.000 people, by serving his spicy melange of clean cuts and dirty grooves, mixing it down and grinding it up from raw to smooth.

A few memorable events ecstasized by Satyr:
Amsterdam Dance Event (NL), Atmosphere (Berlin / D), Ballonnenfeest (NL), Burning Man (USA), Carnival (Varginha / Brazil), Club A (Sao Paulo / Brazil), Dance Valley (NL), Love & Magic (Oslo / Norway), Metsafestiwaal (Finland), Pi Club (Berlin / D), Q-Base (D), Senseblender fest (B), Universo Paralello (Bahia / Brazil), VooV Experience (D), and many more in Belgium, Brazil, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, USA & all over The Netherlands.*
