The IOT gained fame by the phrase “we shift” alongside “Nothing is True”. This
makes some sense, for the only way one might keep up a constant shift is by the “meta-belief” that Nothing is True (Everything is Permitted). Thus, the action is the dogma is the action. Although, here’s where the system clumsily breaks open & spills its yoke.
To believe any one thing is to automatically disbelieve its opposite – in fact, belief as a magickal thing in itself isn’t so much noteworthy as it is (as McKenna puts it) a poverty of language. What is the difference between Zeus & Jesus, the talk show on channel three & the talk show on channel six, Andromeda and Sirius? Sure, switching from Xtianity to Satanism in a day would be a nice trick to play on your friends, but what of the internal self? Even a child may feign belief in anything at all to the point that it becomes true (to the mind) – though, when Everything is True, the message at large decrypts itself, and the whole of the mess of experience may be seen as the Tao it is truly composed of. (The realization of the mind’s kaleidoscope, that is, as switching from one “belief sphere” to another does not make a previous “truth” any less true based on the current inhabited sphere of any sort of condensed belief structure. If anything, you’re fooling yourself into thinking that any & all belief isn’t the exact same thing to begin with – And that’s quite a liberating thing to realize – that every perceived sphere is not actually in constant conflict with each other, [they are inventions; thought-machines] and they may be taken in as a whole, viewed from the standpoint of a man on the moon observing the earth.)
The point here is, these things (spheres of belief) are all products of the same factory (the human imagination) and it is here that the informational Khaos dwells. Do not lose the forest for the trees, nor the Mind for the Idea (or concept). From that point, we may apply said knowledge to the thought processes & habitual logistics which make up the internal/external bridge of your trans-personal environmental outlook to shape & re-create the big picture. It’s not as hard as it sounds. Language has always been at a loss for our most pertinent subjects.
If I need say it, then I will – this isn’t your original, well-trusted brand of corn flakes & raisins – this is the edge; potent results as bonfires adrift at sea are found herein. Caution: soup may be hot.
I personally advocate the thought-experiment of “dropping out” of the sphere of Condensed Belief into the “everything is true” zone, as it were. Watch what happens then – could it be called Zen? Breaking through the membrane of the mundane into the domain of wisdom? Shamanic flight? You decide. All you need to do is change your perception
