The only consistent feature of reality is its general increase in complexity and
strangeness over time. Reality today is becoming increasingly occult. This fact has
nothing to do with dusty ancient manuscripts, demons escaped from excavated relics, or
angry ghosts. Rather it is the corporate boards, the priests of high technologies,
and financial wizards of today who are creating a new dawn of occultism behind closed
Occultism is the study of the hidden. While the practical mechanics of
everyday life are systematically hidden and taken over by experts, simultaneously we are
each invited to participate

However the world we are invited to participate in is nothing but a screen. A vast
screening process is now in operation, a form of brutal intraspecies competition

The company is in the business of creating bodies that are worth something – successful

It's time to knock on closed doors, to institute board rooms
of our own, and unlock the hidden potential of our species' genetics by our own
efforts. Those who regard power and money as evils will surely be denied their
freedom, and those who avoid technology will become as machines. Reality is the new
occult. It's time to decide what kind of demon you will become.
