The Artwork depicts a Yakut Shaman, whose trance drum is symbolically seen to be the genie bottle abode of the his Spirit Wife, who visits him within his lucid dreams.

The European classification of the Spirit Wife is usually based upon a medieval perception, which considers the Spirit Wife to be a demonic entity, called a Succubus.

Western psychology, during the Soviet era, once considered the Spirit Wife complex of Siberian shamanism and that of other shamanic cultures to be a mental aberration, or that of fantasy prone individuals indulging themselves in erotic delusions. However, the psychologist Carl Jung otherwise saw the Spirit Wife/Succubus as being an archetypal aspect of the ‘Anima.’

Jung saw the feminine archetype of the ‘Anima’ as being the personified intermediary with the psychic powerhouse of the subconscious, whose myriad female forms are encountered within ‘lucid’ dreams, from whom a Shaman derives his psychic abilities, an Artist is inspired by as his Art Muses.

The motif of the Spirit Wife is known to the Yoga practitioner as Shakti, whose numerous feminine aspects are called Dakinis, which is also very much part of Tibetan Buddhist dream Yoga practices as well as Siberian shamanism.

For example, the Goldi tribe of Siberia clearly distinguish between a female tutelary spirit, known as an Ayami, which in Western occult practice is of similarity to the (HGA) Holy Guardian Angel, (Jung would also see the HGA as being the ‘Anima,’) who chooses the shaman.

Whereas the helping spirits, (Jung would see as being the myriad aspects of the ‘Anima’) the Goldi call Syven, an occultist would call (Succubae/Succubi) Demons, which are subordinate to the Ayami. The Syven are granted to the Shaman by the Ayami herself. The Altaic name, Ayami means, ‘Silk Twisted In Beauty,’ as in a horse’s mane. The Siberian shaman in particular sees the drum as his Mare, who too is his Spirit Wife, whom he trance rides as an eight-legged female centaur into conscious dreaming.

According to the ethnologist and anthropologist, Leo Sternberg, the Goldi explain the relations between the Shaman and his Ayami by a complex sexual emotion. Below is an experience related by a Goldi shaman:

“Once I was asleep on my sick-bed, when a spirit approached me. It was a very beautiful woman. Her figure was very slight, she was no more than half an arshin (71 cm.) tall. Her face and attire were quite as those of one of our Gold women.

Her hair fell down to her shoulders in short black tresses. Other shamans say they have had the vision of a woman with one half of her face black, and the other half red. She said: ‘I am the “Ayami” of your ancestors, the Shamans. I taught them shamaning. Now I am going to teach you. The old shamans have died off, and there is no one to heal people. You are to become a shaman.’

Next she said: “I love you, I have no husband now, you will be my husband and I shall be a wife unto you. I shall give you assistant spirits. You are to heal with their aid, and I shall teach and help you myself. Food will come to us from the people.”

I felt dismayed and tried to resist. Then she said, “If you will not obey me, so much the worse for you. I shall kill you.”

She has been coming to me ever since, and I sleep with her as with my own wife, but we have no children. She lives quite by herself without any relatives in a hut, on a mountain, but she often changes her abode. . . . Sometimes she comes under the aspect of an old woman, and sometimes under that of a wolf, so she is terrible to look at.

Sometimes she comes as a winged tiger. I mount it and she takes me to show me different countries. I have seen mountains, where only old men and women live, and Villages, where you see nothing but young people, men and women: they look like Golds and speak Goldish, sometimes those people are turned into tigers.

Now my ‘Ayami’ does not come to me as frequently as before. Formerly, when teaching me, she used to come every night.’

She has given me three assistants-the ‘Jarga’ (the Panther), the ‘Doonto (the Bear) and the ‘Amba’ (the Tiger).

They come to me in my dreams, and appear whenever I summon them while shamanising. 

If one of them refuses to come, the ‘Ayami’ makes them obey, but, they say, there are some who do not obey even the ‘Ayami.’ When I am shamaning, the ‘Ayami’ and the assistant spirits are possessing me; whether big or small, they penetrate me, as smoke or vapour would.

When the ‘Ayami’ is within me, it is she who speaks through my mouth, and she does everything herself.

When I am eating the ‘Sukdu’ (the offerings) and drinking pig’s blood (the blood of pigs is drunk by shamans alone, lay people are forbidden to touch it), it is not I who eat and drink, it is my ‘Ayami’ alone.”

NOTE: The quoted material concerning the Ayami is derived from: Mircea Eliade, Shamanism, op. cit., PP. 72-3, quoting Leo Sternberg, ‘Divine Election in Primitive Religion’ (1924), PP. 476 ff. cf.. Shamanism, PP. 42l ff., for autobiographies of South-Indian Savara male shamans and female shamans, whose marriages to (Anima – Animus) spirits are in striking parallel to the documents collected by Sternberg.

The design features a Finno-Ugric Siberian shaman. The word Shaman originates from Siberia, which is said to be derived from the Evenki word “šamán,” most likely from the South-Western dialect spoken by the Sym Evenki peoples.

The Tungusic term, Shaman, was subsequently adopted by Russian explorers interacting with the indigenous peoples in Siberia. The word, Shaman can also be found in the memoirs of the exiled Russian churchman Avvakum.

The term Shaman has since been adopted by anthropologists as a coverall term for numerous other cultures who share similar shamanic techniques, which enable a practitioner to alter his/her (brain wave) states of consciousness.

The Siberian shaman in particular utilises the drum. The drum is often referred to as being an eight-legged-mare; which is in turn is associated with the abode of a (Anima emanation) Spirit Wife, somewhat like a genie in her (drum) bottle. In other words, the drum, Mare and Spirit Wife are seen to be the same. (The Eight legs of the Mare, being the eight compass directions of a symbol painted upon the skin of the drum, which is also associated with the motif of the World Tree.) 

The shamanic motif of the Mare and the Spirit Wife leads to the term ‘Nightmare,’ which originally referred to the Old-Hag Syndrome.

The Old Hag Syndrome is otherwise known as the Bedroom Invader Experience, which is experienced when an individual inadvertently accesses hypnagogic trance.

An unprepared individual will invariably become terrified when accessing hypnagogic trance, wherein he/she will experience the manifestations of his/her deepest fears, which often involves sexual scenarios.

Whereupon the term, Old-Hag Syndrome refers to the visitation of a Succubus, whose initial manifestation is nightmarish, which induces the experience of intense pressure upon the body, the sensation of being (Sphinx) strangled, sleep paralysis, vivid hallucinations, and eventual lucid dreams.

Wherein an individual will feel as if he is being abducted by otherworldly (Alien) entities as well as experiencing out of body experiences.

The Shaman learns to control his fear, in order to ride the (inner TARDIS) ‘Night-Mare,’ rather than being ridden by her.

Whereupon she becomes his (Ally) Spirit Wife; hence the carved (World Tree/Axis-Mundi) handle of the Shamans (Mare) drum in the design, which represents his (trance) Spirit (Anima-Mundi) Wife.

(NOTE: The Mare/drum [trance symbol and tool] is seen to be tethered to the World Tree, which symbolically represents the spinal column of the Shaman. The Spirit Wife refers to what Yoga practitioners call the Kundalini Shakti, which is experienced as a liquid energy that is aroused to arise along the (World Tree) spinal column. the Kalahari Bushmen of South Africa call this inner energy, Num, which is aroused when a practitioner accesses hypnagogic trance, which the Bushmen call, Kia. In ‘trance dance’ culture of the [Rave] dance clubs, this inner energy is known as ‘The Rush!’)  

The monotonous beat of the drum stimulates the Theta brain wave, which induces hypnagogic trance. The experience of hypnagogic trance is basically hypnotic induction.

The Theta brain wave is also associated with anxiety reduction, the active (day dreaming) imagination, lucid dreams and Zen meditative states.

The Theta brain wave is depicted in the design, which is also known as the hyper-suggestible state.

The inducement of the Theta brainwave allows for mental programming via the use of repetitive Mantas, such as the ecstatic songs (and trance dancing) of a shaman are effective at dispersing fear states, when sung in conjunction with the (Spirit Wife/Mare/Pony-Girl) drum.

At The Mountains Of Madness amidst the coldest parts of Antarctica, Canada and Siberia lie dark soils, which have remained permanently frozen for many thousands let alone millions of years. Trapped within these ancient soils hundreds of metres down between the crushing layers of this frozen earth, known as permafrost, are living bacteria as old as the ice itself.


Just how these Great Old Ones survive is yet unknown, but there are those who claim the microbes secrets could unlock the door to immortality. A Russian scientist, named Sabit Abyzov who was conducting Miskatonic research at the Vostok station in Antarctica during 1979 had discovered still thriving prehistoric bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms 11,811ft (3,600m) beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, just above the sub-glacial Lake Vostok.


The discovered bacteria had been frozen solid for hundreds of thousands of years. There was no credible way that the bacteria could have made their way down into the infernal depths from the surface, after the ice had formed.

Abyzov had concluded that the bacteria must therefore be hundreds of thousands of years old, that were far older than any organisms found previously.

However, In 2007, the longevity record fell yet again. Eske Willerslev and a Miskatonic research team from the University of Copenhagen made scientific history when they discovered living bacteria half a million years old, which was hidden deep below layers of permafrost in Antarctica, Siberia and Canada.

It was the first time that the researchers had isolated DNA from an ancient but still active bacteria. Then, just two years later, an even older microbe came to light, but this time it was 3.5 million years old. The microbe was unearthed by the Russian scientist, Anatoli Brouchkov. This particular bacteria had  been unearthed from the ancient permafrost at a site known as Mammoth Mountain in Siberia.

Brouchkov decided to inject himself with the 3.5-million-year-old microbe, which is known as Bacillus F, to see if the nigh immortal bacteria will enable the extension of his lifespan. He had of course tested the inactivated form of the bacteria upon mice, fruit flies and human blood cells first.

The test indicated promising results before he then injected himself with the arcane serum. Two years after the experiment Brouchkov claimed that he had not caught the flu since his self-treatment with the ancient microbe, but such would require lateral gene transfer; that, or the injected bacteria had triggered a switch in his junk DNA.

As far back as 1995, scientist Raúl Cano and his co-workers managed to revive 30-million-year-old bacterial spores from the stomach of an ancient bee trapped in amber; but there be far older bacteria. Russell Vreeland of West Chester University in Pennsylvania discovered bacteria, which have survived for an astonishing 250 million years. The bacterium is known as Virgibacillus strain 2-9-3, is remarkably similar to modern Virgibacillus found in the Dead Sea.

These bacteria have been trapped within salt crystals, buried 1,970ft (600m) below ground, which were discovered at a site in New Mexico, where, it just so happens, a nuclear waste dump was being built. At 250 million years old, these bacterial cells would have been thriving when the first dinosaurs were just starting to walk upon the face of the Earth.

Once the ancient microbes were extracted from their crystal sarcophagi and placed within a nutrient-rich flask in the lab, they reawakened and began to grow. “They were in the crystals and they were alive,” says Vreeland. “The chances of them getting into a sealed crystal were about zero and the chances of this being a contamination event were around one in a billion.”  

Sounds as if the bacteria are quite alien doesn’t it; however there are multitudes of bacteria, which occupy your planet of a body, along with other Lovecraftian critters around, you cannot see with the naked eye, whose reality is quite alien; some of which have been around, unchanged since the time of the dinosaurs, whom consider your body to be their home.

It appears that there are many other similar examples of bacteria trapped in salt. Bacteria between 33 and 48 million years old were discovered in salt crystals in an inland salt lake in central China. But is there a far broader significance to the ability of an individual bacteria to survive for 250 million years? In a word, yes. If a bacteria can survive in stasis for millions of years, then there is the possibility that cells or DNA had first arisen upon another planet within a far flung solar system, or even in a different galaxy, which had then travelled the vast chasm of space to Earth upon a comet or an asteroid.

The nearest galaxy to our Milky Way is the Andromeda galaxy, which is only 2-3 million light years away. Such would be an approachable distance for a bacterium, having the ability to survive for 250 million years, which might be somehow conscious of its own existence, hence sentient, having a form of intelligence, we would not be able to comprehend, since it would be utterly alien.

Many will consider this to sound utterly crazy, but only because Humanity sees sentient intelligence as being akin to its self of a measurement, which is not only rather arrogant in the extreme, it is more so very ‘limited’ of a ring-pass-not perception, considering that the builders of all life upon the planet are of the microscopic, being that of the DNA, having an evolutionary agenda.

In other words, when looking at the stars searching for aliens of a similar intelligence to your own, who quaintly have a similar humanoid form, flying around in a recognisable technology, which some to believe had built the ancient Egyptian pyramids, let alone believing they had constructed pyramids in Antarctica, the actual alien could just as well be within you all of stellar born DNA, or that of a microbe. Going by Vreeland’s work there is a possibility that life could have existed on Mars, due to salt deposits, which have been discovered within Martian meteorites.

Could then, an ancient bacteria, having an extraterrestrial origin, been engineered to purposefully affect the human DNA? Who knows; although, the idea was used for Ridley Scott’s science fiction movie, Prometheus; there are trillions of bacteria within the human body, which regularly exchange DNA with each other, but the idea that their genes could end up in the human DNA has been very controversial. In 2001, the team who sequenced the first human genome claimed to have found 113 cases of such lateral gene transfers (LGT), but their conclusion were later refuted.

This high-profile error had sent tremors through the field; according to Julie Dunning Hotopp who led a new study into LGT. Although her Miskatonic team has since found several cases of LGT between bacteria and invertebrates, “it’s still difficult to convince people that it may be happening in the human genome,” she said.

“It really does seem that human genome sequence data from somatic cells show signs of LGT events from bacteria, and so do cancer cells,” said Jonathan Eisen from University of California, Davis, who coordinated the peer review of the new study, who was not involved in the work; Eisen to have aptly commented, “Wild stuff does happen.” 

If LGT events occur, they may be affecting long stretches of DNA, which have been previously dismissed as being  junk DNA. However, the once considered junk DNA has since been found to be crucial to the way the genome works, as if it some kind of computer program, which is programming the genome and thereby determining your existence.

The analogy with a computer program is entirely hypothetical of a science fiction scenario; although, Simon Shepherd, who lectures in cryptography and computer security at the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom looked into this idea.

Shepherd took an approach to the junk DNA, which was based on his line of work. He looked upon the junk DNA, as just another secret code to be broken.

After Shepherd analysed the code, he came to the conclusion that one probable function of introns, is that they are some sort of ‘error correction code.’

The error code fixes the occasional mistakes made by the DNA as it replicates itself. If he is correct, the introns would have lots of other uses. The next big breakthrough came from a Miskatonic collaboration between medical doctors, physicists and linguists. They discovered even more evidence that there was some sort-of Necronomicon language buried within the introns.

If the DNA had originally originated from an ancient extraterrestrial source, the language buried in the so-called junk DNA could be some sort of message, which is residing within us all.

Should this be the case, the encoded message may be communicating its self via the bio-photon emission emanating from out of the mitochondrial DNA, which then formulates into the holographic nature of dreams; whereupon, the message can be potentially accessed via lucid dreaming when to go beyond the ring-pass-not… Mountains Of Madness… where you may just discover that your experiential reality is a… Maya simulation…

So, if you do meet up with a lovecraftian bedroom invading ‘Shoggoth’ alien, which seeks to abduct you into its shadowy informational reality, it will be a Necronomicon simulation too, just like you. But it be far better that you conjure up the ‘Tulpa’ Succubus called, Ronovea within a Microcosmic lucid dream to associatively ‘Browse.’ You might then encounter a Lara Croft cosplayer upon a Macrocosmic synchronicity, at a comic convention, who you can potentially date. As Ronovea/Lara Croft will say, “why live in Arkham asylum fear, when you can have so much more Miskatonic fun, instead.” 

The lucid dream engineered Ronovea synchronicty may also reveal that reality has a (language/code) genetic basis. If however you prefer to live in fear, conjure up a ‘Shoggoth’ out of H.P. Lovecraft’s, novella, At The Mountains Of Madness instead, should it be your Grimoire predilection: “It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train—a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its kind had swept so evilly free of all litter.” But keep in mind, it might just ‘correspondingly’ manifest as an out of control juggernaut lorry careering your way, though, more likely to bear down upon you as a mutating… Flu Virus!

The driving force behind much of my art and writing is the number of ongoing personal experiences I have had concerning the Out Of Body phenomenon and lucid dreaming, which of inner experiences also correlate with the observation of concordant synchronistic phenomena, along with what can be construed as being paranormal events.


I have the tendency to utilise the technical term hypnagogic trance when to speak of attaining conscious ingress into the dream. The hypnagogic state is not a mysterious occult force; hypnotherapists seek to induce hypnagogic trance in their patients, which is an altered state of consciousness, shamanic practitioners are highly adept at inducing in their own selves of auto-hypnosis.

A number of artists throughout the ages have also engaged in inducing hypnagogic trance, whether knowingly or unknowingly, of varying degrees of intensity when creating works of art, since the nigh meditative creative process can induce a theta brainwave in the artist, which is associated with the inducement of hypnagogic trance.

TAROT: HIGH PRIESTESS II: How To (Hypnagogic) Hypnotise All, Via ‘False Flag’ Shock Hypnosis.If you are interested, Please Check out the Succubus Art Book Grimoire: Click Here.

Hypnagogic trance can also be induced via shock hypnosis at the collective level, should there be a mass focus upon a shocking occurrence, which can be prior orchestrated of a subversively engineered false flag event, let alone being able to engineer an associated End-Of-Days mass-media focus on 2012.

When to inadvertently access hypnagogic trance at the point of sleep, it sometimes involves the experience of sleep paralysis as well as the Old Hag Syndrome, or otherwise called, the Bedroom Invader experience.

The Old Hag Syndrome of an assailing nightmare can be otherwise transformed into a Night-Mare Succubus to ride, as your Mind-Doll Dakini, whence she to carry you, without moving, Out Of Body, wherever you desire to go, throughout space and time within a lucid dream.

Whatever is experienced when accessing hypnagogic trance will be determined by what you take in with you of an inner narrative of beliefs, which is often subliminally influenced by your culture. An analogy is somewhat akin to your beliefs determining what you tune into of a TV program, which you will then enter into as a fully interactive lucid dream. The dream reflects back your inner narrative; wherefore if you transform the narrative, you can reprogram your dreams.

Numerous others have also experienced this phenomena throughout the ages, such as the author and researcher Michael Raduga, who otherwise brands the hypnagogic state as being what he calls, The Phase. Raduga has come to the realisation that the hypnagogic state has been hijacked by various religions; most notably by the trinity of Abrahamic faiths, whose shared symbolic dialogue determines the narrative of the inner experience for many across the globe, which can be further manipulated via orchestrated false flag events.

Raguga has also noted that the religious narrative has been transmuted into the viral-meme arena of science fiction, where machismo Angels and butch Demons have been transformed into Aliens, which is essentially a continuation of the religious programming.

In other words, whoever controls the symbolic narrative can thereby determine the programming of many minds; this would be subversively engineered in order to sustain the established religious structure, which is very much entwined with the present New World Order centralist politics of society; wherefore, those who control the narrative will not want the masses questioning it. The primary means of negating the questioning masses is to make them fear the inner reality of their own minds; hence the war on drugs for example.

The question is, how far would the controllers go in sustaining their symbolic Matrix, wherein many a mind is being subversively programmed and thereby imprisoned, without ever realising it?

Well, you would need to look into a possible physiological factor involving dreaming in order to determine how far the controllers would go, such as looking at the pineal gland for example, which is otherwise known as the third eye by ancient mystics.

The scientist Rick Strassman MD has determined that the pineal gland is inextricably entwined with dreaming and other associated altered states of perception, which may be due to the pineal gland alchemically producing the schedule 1 drug, N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT or N,N-DMT)  within its one time vestigial eye of an amphibian ancestor.

This is the reason why ancient shamanic adepts of hypnagogic trance inducement were symbolically represented as being amphibious creatures such as toads or as reptiles of varying kinds, as well as fish.

It just so happens that the mass fluoridation of the water supply with the known neurotoxins and mutagenic compounds, fluorosilicic acid, sodium fluorosilicate, and sodium fluoride specifically targets the pineal gland.

Whereby you then have a number of neurological disorders afflicting the industrialised nations, who practice fluoridation since the end of WWII.

Unlike the fluoride compounds found in toothpaste or supplements, fluoridation chemicals are not pharmaceutical grade quality. They are, instead, unpurified industrial by-products, which are collected in the air pollution control systems of certain industries.

The fluoridation chemicals calcifies the pineal gland over time, whereby leaving it inoperable; hence potentially cutting you off from experiencing what Raduga brands as The Phase.

You could thereby conjecture that the ruling elite are attempting to transform the mass populace into easily programmed robots who will not question the symbolic Matrix, which imprisons their minds. If you consider such conjecture to be just a crazy conspiracy theory, you are still left with the unavoidable fact that a criminal mistake has been made!

NOTE: Michael Raduga and Rick Strassman MD have their own symbolic narratives, which influences their research into the nature of consciousness. On one side of the coin, you have the Russian entrepreneur, Michael Raduga, who takes a Newage approach to his investigation of The Phase phenomena; he utilises the scientific method as much as possible, which is of similarity to much of the prior Soviet psychotronic research; his particular symbolic narrative is summed up by his scientific sounding brand term, The Phase. 

On the other side of the coin you have the American scientist, Rick Strassman MD, whose symbolic narrative is heavily influenced by Judaism in particular, and in turn the Bible, who is on a personal quest in order to determine what the Biblical prophets had tuned into of an inner reality, which is very popular among a number of Judaeo-Christian American’s; his brand term is the religious sounding, The Spirit Molecule. 

As mentioned prior, your own personal narrative determines what you internally access, which can be subversively influenced by your surrounding culture; hence, whoever controls the collective narrative of your culture on either side of the coin can thereby influence the mass population’s perception of reality; this is very much the case when brand terms are aligned with already established archetypal influences. 

In order to determine who is promoting a symbolic narrative at a collective level, you follow the associated strands of an underlying money trail to find those who own and run the mass-media show, which is somewhat self-evident when looking into the media machine of America. 

For example, Rick Strassman MD is part of a bigger narrative web of associative correspondences, which hearkens back to the psychedelic hippie era, of a more cohered form, whose orientation is nigh Gnostic of a symbolic paradigm. 

The evocative branding of an altered state of abstract consciousness, whether it be The Phase or Spirit Molecule, is that of an art form. The form the symbolic narrative takes on either side of the coin of an open-ended or closed system is determined by the creative potential of humanity, which is essentially that of art. 

The practice of art is indivisible to the practice of magic, they are one and the same. So, if you do not want to be programmed by subliminal influences, or to otherwise transform them of symbolic alchemy, you need to become aware of the inner Artist within you; for it was the shamanic practitioner of trance who was the first Artist, who knows how to lucid dream.
