The Nordic and the Trickster
On the two kinds of “aliens” and how to avoid getting invaded by them.
Last Thursday was the first Break The Rules in front of a live audience with philosopher and BTR Regular Dr. Jason Reza Jorjani speaking on the nature of aliens, religion, and artificial intelligence. It was timely, coming just a day after Congress' intriguing UFO hearing, but its greatest significance has to do with identifying and balancing the forces of creativity and order which Jason presents as the two types of “aliens” that humanity has encountered.
On one hand, you’ve got the mostly sadistic but orderly tall blonde “Nordics” who consider themselves to be the peak of evolution and see their destiny as ruling over mankind, having already done so under the disguise of various so-called “gods”.
On the other hand, you’ve got a shape-shifting “super-consciousness” whose form reflects anything which resonates with the human imagination, be it elves, fairies, or the garden variety gray alien.
According to Jason, the first group of athletic Aryans in tight jumpsuits are not from some distant star system like certain contactees have claimed, but are the transhumanist progenitors of escapee Nazis who traveled back in time to create the moon, seeded the earth by crossbreeding their DNA with lower hominids, and ran this traditionalist society as its "gods" with the strictest of hierarchical order.
They are the totalitarian deities worshiped in the ancient nations of Babylon, India, and Greece, where they are respectfully known as the Anunnaki, the Devas, and Olympians. Jason goes even further, however, and links the Nordic elite to the “Elohim” or “gods” of the Old Testament with the skyfather Yahweh as their ironfisted leader. This remains the same case with Islam and Christianity which Jason sees as being the perfect religions for an obedient unthinking society.
Under the guise of “Perennialism” making the case that all religions speak about the same thing, the idea is for humanity to keep their faiths while seeing these Nordics as galactic representatives of the one true God. And this totalitarian religious superstructure is the society that Jason sees as now creeping up on the horizon to "save us from ourselves" by reimposing their fascist dictatorship on a public that's to be stripped of any technological aid beyond what would not be out of place at Medieval Times.
In contrast to the orderly Nordics is the chaotic energy embodying the “Trickster” archetype.
Renowned Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung identified this Trickster as residing at the borderline of conscious and unconscious thought, such as the Greek god Hermes which Jung saw as “the communicator, the guide of souls on a mystical and psychological journey that sought to unite male and female elements.”
As their appearances in the form of elves and fairies reflected the woodland environment around what most people called home, the appearance of shiny space suits and glittering flying saucers is understandably more suitable for modern sensibilities.
Regardless of the form they take, Dr. Jorjani sees these trickster entities as the one thing that the aforementioned Nordics are truly scared of due to their power and influence being above any level of societal control. Such a guide for humanity is not guaranteed to be gentle and has in many legends brought human pride down a peg when hubris reached critical mass, so it is not surprising that the Nordics with their plans of total domination would serve as a perfect foil for the Trickster as well.
Imagination and Fear
While many of these above-mentioned redpills may be the size of suppositories, there is a more holistic way to view this information even for those who have firmly nailed themselves to the ground of currently explainable reality.
The kind of control which these Nordics want to impose is the state of humanity at a time when liberalism in its classic sense is given up on, and you don’t necessarily need superhuman beings to come into the picture for there to be a charismatic leader that most humans would gladly give up their liberty to in exchange for order.
Historian and Political Philosopher Hannah Arendt who wrote “The Origins of Totalitarianism” saw this kind of transaction as the elimination of any aspiration or creative undertaking which sustains and renews the human world. As she goes on to say:
“No ideology which aims at the explanation of all historical events of the past and at mapping out the course of all events of the future can bear the unpredictability which springs from the fact that men are creative, that they can bring forward something so new that nobody ever foresaw it.”
This power of our imagination has been the crucial link to inspiration from this otherworldly realm inhabited by strange and mischievous creatures, and such artistic tendencies will always get in the way of a clean cut trajectory as much as the idea of human dignity itself. But while these Nordics have not yet arrived to claim their godly inheritance, there are less sophisticated representatives of this totalitarian tendency in the here and now, specifically that of Putin’s Russia.
While the short Russian monkey man of Vladimir Putin may be far from the tall blonde ideal of these time traveling overlords, there is a simian similarity in how his recent actions have aped the alleged progenitor of the Nordics… that being Adolf Hitler himself. While too many historians have cried wolf when summoning the Fuhrer as a comparison to whatever politician they hate, the example in this case is much more appropriate not even due to Putin as much as to how the civilized world shows fear towards him, and such a level of fear may be enough to allow Russia an unchallenged invasion of Poland and beyond.
During the Congressional hearing on UFOs, it was mentioned how superior the technology of these crafts witnessed by those within the military is to any identified as our own, and the overall feeling which has pervaded our media is that of learned helplessness towards alien aggressors whose flying saucer citadels reduce our civilization to rubble. Even if a plucky gang of misfits manages to save the day by destroying the mothership, the visual effects budget has already gone to decimating New York City and Washington DC long before this happy ending. In a similar way, the approach within the media and public consciousness towards Russia was one whose first expectation was for President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to flee at the first sign of trouble from an obviously “superior” enemy.
Even when the long boasted Russian technology is seen to be just as real as the aforementioned alien invasion films, there is still a strong element within our opportunistic and cowardly elites that does not want to push Putin too far or he might really hurt someone.
In terms of the would-be followers of the Nordics, Dr. Jorjani points towards Russian people as prime candidates to be ordered around without question so long as they believe in the unquestioning superiority of their new leaders. The cowardice of those in the West goes ten times for many of these people who were taught from their childhoods onwards that they are nothing but followers whose fate has been written out in the brutal conditions bereft of any personal dignity. This has unfortunately been the case from the time their ancestors were in chains to the European powers of the nobility who ruled over the Russian Empire that Putin seeks to resurrect.
But here is where imagination comes in to save the day once again, since by utilizing those mischievous powers of the Trickster, we are able to see through the naked clothes of the emperor, Nordic or Monkey alike.
While Dr. Jorjani sees a doomed West in the form of a Fascistic reaction to leftism that will welcome the Nordic overlords with open arms, the number of people who would rather join his rebel alliance is one which may be underestimated. When compared to how many Russians, Chinese, and other denizens of dictatorships may be quick to submit, the Western power of imagination has shown itself to be too in league with the mischievous Jester of the liminal realm as to humbly submit in full seriousness.
Embracing our inner Trickster and Nordic
While our particular problems with crime, censorship, and loneliness need to be addressed and worked through, there are enough people in the West who are growing aware of their relationship to the Trickster as well as the need to work on cultivating a healthy relationship with their orderly Nordic side as well.
Just like the polar gradient of Dionysus and Apollo elucidated by Friedrich Nietzsche in “The Birth of Tragedy”, both the chaotically inspirational and the clean cut orderly natures exist to certain degrees within us and must be made aware of lest one assumes full control over our fate.
But in an “as above so below” way, the interplay of these two elements does not have to be politely contained within pure allegory but could very likely exist as actual forces that will do battle outside of us as well as within us. Such ideas are present within Tibetan Buddhist master Chogyam Trungpa’s book “Transcending Madness: The Experience of the Six Bardos”, where the planes of existence are seen as both mental states as well as cosmological realities. So there is room to be reborn on a more advanced planet with god-like powers, but at the same time, one's advancement on the path to understanding means that the buck stops with how you think and act regardless of the situation you find yourself in.
Should we live in a planet whose greatest challenges have already presented themselves to us or one where the elves and fairies are summoned by neo-shaman-wizards to do battle with Nordic battlecruisers, it all comes back to how we personally deal with the situation at hand.
Can we learn to listen to the collective unconscious so as to stay out of the traps that both the Nordics and Tricksters have in store for us? Only if we are imaginative and brave enough, which in reality is the same thing.
