Book Review: Decoding Reality - The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual

The Most Dangerous Book in the World:
9/11 as Mass Ritual, by S. K. Bain, Trine Day, 2012, 354 pages

The shock and awe factor of 9/11 was perhaps the most signature characteristic of the surreal globally televised event, particularly geared towards the American people, who were terrified that this could happen to us, in our own country. We felt assaulted physically and emotionally that day and by the events that followed. Definitions and explanations offered up by the media made little or no rational sense, but that was by design. 9/11 was aimed at the deeper subconscious, the spiritual realm, the soul of humanity.

By now the official conspiracy theory has been discredited; even the heads of the 9/11 Commission acknowledge its inadequacy and how frustrated they were by the repeated misstatements (lies) by Pentagon and Federal Aviation Administration officials. According to John Farmer, Jr., senior counsel to the Commission, “At some level of the government, at some point in time…there was a decision not to tell the truth about what happened.” The failure of the commission to identify those most responsible for the crime requires us to develop a deeper understanding of what happened if we are to avoid an even greater tragedy in the future. The past is prelude, and the lack of accountability for 9/11 allows the perpetrators to move forward with the next global mega-ritual.

S. K. Bain has bravely ventured into the shadows of black magic, the occult, the language of symbols, mind control, psychological warfare, and special operations that played a role in concocting the narrative that is deeply embedded in contemporary thought and history. He has done so with remarkable humor, wit, rationality and attention to detail. One could project meanings and symbols onto any and every event and subsequently dismiss them as synchronicity, coincidence, or paranoia, but what S. K. Bain has identified is hard to ignore. His book is likely to instill an avid curiosity about the images, symbols and dates that barrage us continually through the mass media. Understanding the code is perhaps our first line of defense against the assaults upon our minds.

I interviewed Bain, who had worked for five years in the shared office space of The Project for the New American Century (PNAC), identified by many as the intellectual architects behind 9/11. He stated that he had had no inside knowledge of the 9/11 plot, nor did he share the goals of those who exploited the attack to plunge the country into wars and expand the National Security State. He began his research years after 9/11/2001, and he was disturbed by what he found. He offered an outline of his discoveries to Trine Day publisher Kris Millegan, with the suggestion that Peter Levenda, author of Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement With the Occult and the trilogy Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft, might be the right person to take on the task. Millegan encouraged Bain to flesh out his outline and to write the book himself; Peter Levenda agreed to contribute insightful prologues to Part One and Part Two, which included these statements:

“Whether or not you believe in a conspiracy surrounding 9/11 is not really important. The nature of Bain's argument is such that you will find your mind expanded by the new possibilities, the arcane potentialities lurking behind political and historical events. By choosing to see 9/11 as a ritual on a massive scale, we paradoxically may better be able to understand it, to accommodate its message on a psychological—even spiritual—level as we approach the end of 2012 and the birth of a new aeon.

“You may be mystified by Bain's work. You may be frustrated, exalted, annoyed, confused, even relieved… but you will not be bored. Read it alongside the newspaper, the blog, and the television news and see how much the reality around you begins to shift and change in ways you would never have foreseen, all because Bain has challenged you to look at the details, to notice the numbers, to see beyond the official statements and the spin, to the unseen patterns behind the great Dramaturgy of our times.”

Anyone with an innate desire to understand themselves and the world will find a veritable feast in Bain's discoveries. Mind-baffling outrageous crimes have a certain logic, language, and dark humor that repeats itself again and again. If you aren't familiar with Aleister Crowley, you will learn how his writings and philosophy have been embraced and disseminated widely by those who believe that a select few should rule over the masses; Bain spells out how the 9/11 events are an "Ode to Aleister Crowley." Bain's work is a virtual Rosetta Stone, a key to decoding the images and signals that constantly bombard us. Bain modestly acknowledges that he is simply compiling the insights of other writers, thinkers, and researchers who have penetrated the matter in depth. He credits and quotes his sources where appropriate, such as Michael Hoffman, who authored Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare in 1989:

"In occult crimes the objective is not linear, that is to say, is not solely bound to the achievement of the immediate effects of the attack on the victim, but may in fact be part of a larger, symbolic ritual magnified by the power of the electronic media, for the purpose of the alchemical processing of the subconscious Group Mind of the masses… it is the subconscious that is being addressed in occult ritual, in a process CIA behavioral scientist Dr. Ewan Cameron termed, 'psychic driving.'"

The intent of psychic driving is to break down the personality and alter behavior; under the CIA's MK Ultra program victims were also given drugs to facilitate this process. Psychic driving can be applied to individuals or on a large scale to an entire population. It is worth noting here that recreational as well as prescription drugs are becoming ever more prevalent in today's world, and people are under constant assault from chemicals and pollution in their water, food, and air, as well as in various products, which hinder their cognitive abilities.

Hoffman also warns that revealing the secrets of ritual murder to an "unprocessed, healthy and vigorous population… [would] have proved fatal to them (the perpetrators).

"But to reveal these after-the-act secrets in our modern time, to a people who have no memory, no will-power and no interest in their own fate… actually strengthens the enslavement of such a people."

Voltaire wrote, "Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities." As an illustration of this statement, it is now known that the vast majority of American soldiers who fought in Iraq believed that Saddam Hussein had something to do with the 9/11 attacks. Bain lays out the occult significance of many of the details of 9/11 in such a way that it becomes obvious that it was orchestrated to terrorize people, while the engineers and architects of the event ended up laughing at those who fell for it. He shows how they have flaunted their power through their control over the media and the official narrative. At the same time, we have witnessed the subsequent assassinations, both literal and figurative, of those who have had the temerity to challenge the official story. The term "conspiracy theorist" was coined and promoted by the CIA to discredit the critics of the Warren Report's lone nut theory, which was the official attempt to close the case on JFK's assassination. The term was then revived in 2001 to be used against those who question the 9/11 narrative.

Daniel Lerner, author of Psychological Warfare Against Nazi Germany, states, "Before you can make a man do as you say, you must make him believe what you say." While verifying Bain's research, I stumbled across the Vigilant Citizen website (http://vigilantcitizen.com/), which proclaims: "Symbols Rule the World, Not Words Nor Laws."

Imagine for a moment that you lived in a different country, spoke a different language, and followed a different calendar. Place and time shape our identity. The rhythms of our lives are significantly determined by the larger culture, and by how our activities intersect with society, social institutions, and networks of transportation. Places and dates have great meaning in the cultural realm and are amplified by the electronic media, connecting the entire planet via the global news networks. 9/11 was not merely reported in London, Madrid, Bali and India; it was echoed in subsequent "terror attacks."

The second half of Bain's work follows the logic behind 9/11, as well as behind the "terror attacks" of 7/7, into a more speculative realm.

On the Vigilant Citizen website I found a review of "The Cabin in the Woods: A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices," which provides a set of rules for understanding mega-rituals that closely reflects Bain's insights about 9/11:

"Most mega-rituals follow specific rules that are clearly spelled out in the movie. These rules are made to give the rituals more potency while allowing the powers that be to avoid the negative effects of bad karma (according to their weird interpretation of it).

"1st Rule: Announcing What Will Happen Beforehand."

As Bain says, in the case of 9/11 the writing was all over the wall. There were multiple public warnings, and a blitz of warnings from numerous intelligence agencies, not to mention all the private warnings to prominent people.

The Vigilant Citizen article continues:

"Mega-rituals are often preceded by 'clues' in mass media, warning or preparing the victims (and the world) for what's coming. If after being warned, victims go on by their own free will, then the puppeteers are liberated from karmic responsibility. During the movie, one technician says:

"They have to make the choice of their own free will. Otherwise, the system doesn't work. It's like The Harbinger…this creepy old fuck who is practically wearing a sign saying 'You Will Die.' Why do we put him there? The System. They have to choose to ignore him. They have to choose what happens in the cellar. Yeah, we rig the system as much as we need to but, in the end, if they don't transgress, they can't be punished…

"2nd Rule: The Victims Must Seal Their Own Fate

"Although every aspect of their environment is tightly controlled and manipulated by the puppet masters, the victims are still made to choose their fate by their own free will."

Over half of Bain's The Most Dangerous Book is devoted to the next mega-9/11 ritual, which he fears is scheduled to happen on 12/25/2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.

S. K. Bain writes ironically as he lays out the plot, the details, and the numerological references, symbols, and players in the upcoming drama, including the globally televised prelude at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London leading up to "Black Christmas." Here is an excerpt from the foreword, which is written as if in hindsight:

"If only we had been able to use the occult script from 9/11 to decode their plans sooner, in advance… maybe, just maybe, this might have allowed us to stop their next act of false flag terror. If only…" The nightmare scenario that he lays out, an "unimaginably horrific assault" upon the city of Phoenix and other targets, becomes an immediate justification for martial law and a global religious war.

The first casualty of war is truth. At the core of Sun Tzu's Art of War is the acknowledgement, "All warfare is based on deception." The truth about false flag operations, ritual murders, and other violent acts always threatens the criminals responsible for them—but silence and consent serve to enhance the criminals' aura of immunity and invincibility. Bain offers us tools to increase our own knowledge and power. He invites us to share his quest, to bear the responsibility of reining in those who seem intent upon murder, deception, terror, and war.

To divide, conquer, terrorize, trick, and deceive is emblematic of evil intent. Bain's work gives us the means to lift the veil and see behind the curtain, to reclaim words and symbols that have been corrupted by those committed to controlling every aspect of human life. The book is an invitation to remember what we know, to unite our rational, emotional and spiritual selves, to find courage within, community with others, and to resist and thwart looming rituals upon the horizon. The book should not be read in isolation, but instead shared and discussed as widely as possible.

Peter Levenda warns readers in the prologue that the book will lead us away from the consensus reality, the shared reality of the dominant culture, the state, the church, and the corporate world. Despite their failures to protect us on many fronts, these institutions are familiar. People have adapted to living within their realms, and they accept pervasive symbols at face value. Our shared cultural metaphors and stories have shaped our lives; discovering new meanings to historical events and revered symbols can be profoundly disturbing. Having warned us of the challenges inherent in looking beyond the veil of consensus reality, Levenda tells us in the prologue to Part II that "This has nothing to do with Mayan prophecy or Biblical millennialism, which are only window -dressing for the actual event. It has everything to do with political events as mega-rituals, and with the conscious application of ritual technology to the manipulation of mass psychology… This is not a book for the nervous." The book's cover is daunting; it is written for courageous souls who seek to discover "what is real" and who can find strength and energy in knowledge despite the challenges and responsibilities that understanding imposes.

PS...A year ago, The Arizona Statewide Vigilant Guard Exercise took place with 250 agencies and 8,000 participants to respond to "a simulated flood and a simulated Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) detonated in the Phoenix metro area."
S.K. Bain posted the "Missing Chapter" on his Blog, which looks at a ritual murder which took place last Christmas.
