The Universe a Hologram?

"Once, in a cheap science fiction novel, Fat had come across a perfect description of the Black Iron Prison, but set in the far future. So if you superimposed the past (ancient Rome) over the present (California in the twentieth century) and superimposed the far future world of The Android Cried Me a River over that, you got the Empire, as the supra- or trans-temporal constant. Everyone who had ever lived was literally surrounded by the iron walls of the prison; they were all inside it and none of them knew it."

  1. `Moorcock’s original inspiration for the Law and Chaos paradigm came from Golden Age science fiction author Poul Anderson, particularly Three Hearts and Three Lions, but it was Moorcock’s fantasy novels which wove the idea into the heart of the counterculture. The use of Law and Chaos as alignments within the popular tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons owes a debt both to Anderson and especially to Moorcock, although most players of fantasy role-playing games are rather unaware of this heritage.´

    Speaking of being unaware of a heritage, this has roots in Tradition.

    ´Moorcock, indeed, makes much use of the initials "JC", and not entirely coincidentally these are also the initials of Jesus Christ, the subject of his 1967 Nebula award-winning novella Behold the Man, which tells the story of Karl Glogauer, a time-traveller who takes on the role of Christ. They are also the initials of various "Eternal Champion" Moorcock characters such as Jerry Cornelius, Jerry Cornell and Jherek Carnelian.´

  2. {Opening his eyes he saw a vast quantity of matter without limit; and he became arrogant, saying, "It is I who am God, and there is none other apart from me."

    When he said this, he sinned against the entirety. And a voice came forth from above the realm of absolute power, saying, "You are mistaken, Samael" - which is, "god of the blind."} - The Hypostasis of the Archons (a.k.a., "The Reality of the Rulers"), Nag Hammadi Library

  3. I've become more and more interested in the Demiurge (idea or reality?). Perhaps Satan really is quite "mad". Thank you for this reference.

  4. You know, I've been trying to remember the writer Anderson for a long time - I thank you for refreshing my memory of who this was (saw a great review for his work). You may enjoy (also) Gene Wolfe and his Torturer series.

  5. It seems of utmost importance, if one looks into the demiurge (vs. God), to counterbalance it with supramoralistic supradualistic metaphysics, e.g. Maya/Matrix/Kali + Shiva/Purusha (to transcend some "Western errors and fantasies/fears", or if you will "Semitic distortions").
