About the Author

 

Hi.

My name is Jordan Dumer. It means: one who descends down river that lives on or near a hill; but you can all me Jodan Dasu Yo or Jordan Dasu instead. It means Just Kidding in Japanese; and is far more interesting then my birth name…boring… it should have been something awesome like Juan Don Doomersmith 3rd, Esquire.

I’ve gone by many alter egos, call them Characters, Shticks, Doppelgangers, Archetypes, whatever. I’ve played the fool, the joker, the jester, the bard and the clown.

Some of these include Guy U. Nevaherdof,  Technical Display, Jodan Daisu and Agape di Vox aka Iopa da Vox.

I’m also the High Priest of Voxtheism, a Consciousness based religion and Grand Master Jester of the Sacred Order of the Forbidden Mirth*, a peaceful misogynistic Fraternal Religious Organization similar to that of the Freemasons (no affiliation to the Freemasons, and until they let me in- boo, Freemasons, boo!

Oh, I also forgot,  I’m not just a Comedy Writer & Scholar but also Musician- in case you’re wondering (which I doubt it). I craft my words in the following formats: Jokes, Essays, Articles & Fiction- and when I’m feeling spunky, some poetry and Lyrics.

I would like to warn you that I’m neither gay or straight, I see only in shades of grey and I’m neither Grand Old Party or Neo-Liberal, so if that’s not your thing, then well, I bid you ado and a fuck you.

I’m trying to shine a light on higher subjects that help build deeper connections within your mind and soul; so that you can use some of these teachings to improve upon your life not matter who you are and where you come from- or just find make you laugh, or whatever, you know- for shits and giggles.

But, I would like to mention Quantum Rhinoplasty my friends with a pinch of Magic (Work in Progress). More simply, I grow every day, learn from my mistakes; and above all, try my best. Because that’s Alchemy baby. I feel the fire burning deep inside! Like some kinda disco inferno!

I have a lot of special interests. The profane bores me. I have to be intellectually challenged. Infusing humour with life’s more challenging topics like:

Consciousness, Spirituality, Religion, Sexuality, Government, Politics, Science, Technology, Mathematics, History, Metaphysics, Quantum Physics, Mysticism, Psychology, Philosophy, Literature, Fine Arts, Poetry, Symbolism, Music Theory, The Occult and Language.

It should be of no surprise that my two favourite genres are Science Fiction and Supernatural Horror- sprinkled with comedy.

But I have a special interest in, Personal Sovereignty (the God given right to have Authority over ourselves and our impact on the world around us).

My influences span far and deep:

Japanese Culture, Russian and British Literature, Spanish and Italian Art, Ancient Egyptian History, Art Film, the Great Polymaths and Technical Death Metal are but a few; and let’s not forget about Classical Greece, The Renaissance, the Enlightenment and the Spiritualist Movement.

I give great respects to the masters who have influenced my work: Rudolf Steiner, Johannes von Goethe, William Blake, Benjamin Franklin, Francois Bacon, Pythagoras, Confucius, Minamoto Musashi, Plato, Manly P. Hall, Nikola Tesla, Salvador Dali, George Melies, Issac Asimov, William Shakespeare, Aristotle, Orson Welles, H P Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe and Leonardo di Vinci.

This doesn’t include the long list of Comedy and Humorists who have influenced my work: Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, Adam Douglas and Ray Bradbury; the stand up of George Carlin, Joe Rogan and Bill Hicks; and movies like the Marx Brothers Duck Soup, Mel Brook’s Blazing Saddles and  Kevin Smith’s Clerks.

And the list not only goes on. It keeps growing. So keep reading . Or send your thoughts and influences my way. I’m always open to ideas. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Jordan Dumer

The Brief History of Famous Couples who took that Until Death part Seriously

Throughout history, we find those rare couples who actually like each other (most of the time). Sometimes, their crazy in love and other times, just plain crazy. These couples took their love straight to the grave, or others along with them. Here’s the rundown.

cleopatra-and-dying-mark-antony-painting-by-pompeo-batoni
A white Cleopatra holding a dying Mark Anthony. Makes sense, I guess.

Marc Anthony and Cleopatra: So, Julius Caesar is dead; and Octavian, now the Emperor Augustus, is telling the citizens of Rome that Marc is sleeping with the enemy. And instead of riding back into Rome to defend his honor, Marc stays with Cleopatra to raise an army against the Roman legions. Well, Augustus has raised a successful enough campaign against Marc Anthony to waltz into Egypt and take it over. In retaliation, Marc Anthony and Cleopatra commit suicide.

Years later, another famous couple will also commit suicide, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun except you know, the fact that Marky Mark, Hitler was a psychopath.

king-henry-8ths-xiii-wives-and-deaths
I wonder how many wives it took before they started to realize this wasn’t going to end well?

King Henry VIII and his 100 Wives: Henry had his six wives, few of which reached old age, thanks to Henry’s inability to produce a strong male heir to succeed him. His obsession with finding a woman fertile enough to produce a male heir, you know, because the sperm has nothing to do with it, lead to some dark freaky places in English History. But it was Henry’s baby Mama Drama that lead to such events as the Protestant Reformation and the rise of one of England’s most popular rulers, Bloody Mary.

petercatherine-great

Peter and Catherine the Great (in the Bedroom): Peter along with his forth wife, the waitress Catherine, were both notorious for extra material affairs. But both were pretty open about it even after Catherine produced a son with another dude. And Catherine severed the Empire of Russia well for the next four years after Peter’s death until her death in bed after a stroke. But rumor spread that she died after….after…the reigns broke on her horse.Read more here,  http://www.history.com/news/8-things-you-didnt-know-about-catherine-the-great

freaky-wife-dies-horse

In 1993, according to http://www.planetdolan.com/8-horrifying-sex-deaths/2/, a suicide note left by Animal Trainer Hannibal Cantori, reveals that the reason for the murder suicide of him and is wife was triggered by Cantori finding his wife in their stable going all Animal Channel with one of the horses. It shows a horse long tradition with the fascination of stable related deaths.

Rosanna McCoy and Johnson Hatfield: part of the infamous Hatfield and McCoy feud between two rival families who lived on adjacent sides of a big ass river. The young couple decided that screwing each other was a nice change a pace. But, in 1881, Johnson decided to ditch the pregnant Rosanna and married his cousin instead; but not before some good old fashioned killing each other took place due to humping.

romeo-and-juliet-death-scene

One could see this as a modern day Romeo and Juliet love story, but less romantic.

Marie and Pierre Curie: Famous lab rats who revolutionized the way we study and understand radioactivity that won them both the Nobel Peace prize. But, at the price of years of unregulated exposure to both of their demises.

And so first fell Pierre, and some years later Marie, but only before winning another Nobel Prize for Chemistry. But before Pierre’s Death, they would produce a daughter that would become the wife of another famous Science dual who will also win the Nobel Prize.

radioactive-warning-marie-curie-death-nobel-prize-winning-death

In contrast, Mary Wollstonecraft, a famous writer and advocate of woman’s right would fall in love with the radical Political philosopher William Godwin; and die after giving birth to a daughter who would later become Marry Shelly, famous writer of Frankenstein and woman’s advocate who married the radical poet, Percy Shelly.

Will and Ariel Durant: Famous Historians who wrote the ridiculously thick collection of Western Civilization titled: The Story of Civilization that runs in 11 volumes. Will was also super into Philosophy, writing and teaching that crap as well. But a month after Ariel’s Death, Will died as well.

redfern-deaths-of-lovers
It is said that a red fern grows between lovers who died due to separation from their beloved partner.

And yet nothing beats the mathematically precise death of Math Gods, George Szekeres and Esther Klein who died only an hour apart on August 28, 2005.

bonnie-and-clyde-death-car

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow: Famous bank robbers and criminals everyone knows about from the Great Depression or something. They died riddled in bullets. Watch the 1967 classic or the History Channel if you wanna know dates.

But Bonnie and Clyde, like the 1967 classic film, are tame compared to the English couple Fred and Rosemary West who turned their 1970’s swingers palace into both a whore house and a house of horrors; that included prostitution, incest and the murder of several woman. Read the article, http://www.allday.com/deadly-duos-10-of-the-worst-serial-killer-couples-in-modern-history-2180808330.html, for more.

Marylin Monroe and Pretty much Everyone Famous from that Time Period with a Penis: Legendary sex icon from the fifties and sixties, Monroe is famous off cameras for fooling around with such figures as JFK, the initials for President John “F*ck everything that Moves” Kennedy, Arthur Miller and famous ball tosser, Joe DiMaggio. But it was during the marriage with Stick Swinger DiMaggio, that lead to her mysterious and untimely death.

Kennedy was once the pillar of the community…and Monroe was one of the many women who touched it.

But Monroe is the only lover of the Horny president found dead. Another example, is the Socialite Mary Meyer. Read, http://list25.com/25-celebrity-deaths-that-are-still-unsolved/, to learn more.

Katia and Maurice Krafft: French Volcanologists famous for recording and photographing lava flows decided to get a closer look at a Japanese Volcano in 1991. They were never seen again. Speaking of Japan, the couple Sachi and Tomio Hidaka died from heart attacks after waiting many years before finally consummating the marriage. This is considered the most popular death on the show, 1001 Ways to Die according to http://1000waystodie.wikia.com/wiki/Ichiboned.

Bill and Hilary Clinton: We are all familiar with this dynamic couples penis and cellphone scandals of Hil-Bill-ary.

The Web Article http://www.wnd.com/2016/08/clinton-death-list-33-most-intriguing-cases/, gives a list of 33 connections of strange deaths associated with the political dynasty.

The Occult 101

The Word Occult means, that which is hidden, kept secret or behind a veil. It deals with the unknown, what you’re not suppose to know and how to know yourself. It lets you see the invisible mechanics behind life. It lifts all veils from your minds eye to alternative perspectives.

It’s Special Interests continue to spark humanities curiosity including: Alchemy, Atlantis, the I Ching, Meditation, Utopian Societies, Christian Mysticism, Yoga, Wicca, Secret Societies, Ancient Egypt, the Supernatural and UFO’s.

But what does Yoga have to do UFO’s? Why are UFO’s Occult anyways? We see them, don’t we?

It seems that the Occult becomes Occult, not necessarily because of its unseen nature, but because of its conflict with certain levels of authority: The Scientific Community, The Intellectual Community, The Mass Media, The Political Authority and the power structures of the high priests sitting on their golden thrones, all seem to oppress certain information that becomes lost, destroyed or left hidden from the public conscious because of its radical nature. And any work that becomes part of this hidden collection, is a part of the Occult.

When looked at from this perspective, the Occult seems to run into one of these five categorizes:

1.Religion, Magic and Spirituality: Think alternative religions, cults, spiritual movements, consciousness systems, etc. that aren’t normally practiced or discussed by your Average Religious Authority. A lot of Special Interest Topics deals with Religion: Alchemy, Wicca, Buddhism, Mysticism, Hermeticism and Gnostic, which have begun a revival.

2.Science, Medicine and Technology: Think scientific studies  and technology that is kept hidden, or dismissed by the Scientific community as absurd.

3.The Liberal Arts: Think alternative historical theories, Philosophy and other material (Intellectual Material that isn’t Scientific in Nature) that is not discussed by the Intellectual Community.

4.The Arts, Entertainment & Media: Think books, famous artworks, individuals, Movies, new stories, etc not discussed by the Mass Media.

5.Political and Social Activism: Think  Elite Secret Societies, Socialism, Anarchy, Technoarchy and many famous Social Rights Activists kept hidden. This is where the majority of the Modern Day OCCULT focuses on today (New World Order, Big Brother, Illuminati, Freemasons, etc).

Keep in touch for Occult 101, Part 2: The Schools of Occult Thought. It deals with the approach certain Occult writers take to certain material pertaining to the Occult Categorizes mentioned above.

Also, feel free to ask questions. Vox Bless.

 

13 Illuminated 19th Century Figures History Kept Secret

INTRODUCTION:

The Letter 13 was not by coincidence. The Thirteenth Letter of the Alphabet is M for Mason….

The late 1700’s saw the death of Benjamin Franklin, himself being a Free masonic Grand Master among other Enlightened Free masonic figures like Samuel Adams and George Washington. And even though Thomas Jefferson became president in 1801, the Founding Fathers influence let alone position within Freemasonry and other secret societies, like the Illuminati, is uncertain.

And while Freemasonry had spread in Europe under the influence of the late Enlightenment in the Early eighteen hundreds, by the end of the first quarter of the century, American Freemasonry would become nearly abolished, almost replaced by a new church, and finally reborn by the second half of the century.

By the end of the 19th Century, Freemasonry had not only grown to new heights, but had fused with so many other occult societies, many of them new, that by the early 20th century, these Secret Societies became tightly interwoven. Here’s a brief look at some of the individuals who helped shaped it.

Prince Hall

 

    1. Prince Hall: 1735/38-1807African American abolitionist and social rights activist for education and free rights. Prince Hall also founded the first African Free Masonic Lodge, now known as Prince Hall Freemasonry and served as Grand Master of the Lodge until his death [1].
    2. Johann Adam Weishaupt: 1748-1830. Philosopher and occultist. Weishaupt is most famous as the Founder of the Secret Society known as the Illuminati established in 1776. Its imagery along with Freemasonry would come to dominate American Occultism into the present day[2].
    3. Johannes Von Goethe:gothe-illumanti-elightened-occult-19th-century-figure
      1749-1832
      . Goethe along with other Enlightened bad asses like Thomas Jefferson was lucky enough to put their imprint on the first quarter of this uncanny century. An Original member of the Bohemian Illuminati ; and all around Renaissance Man, Goethe spent a good chunk of his free time in the 19th Century on the Faust legend [3]. He was also the founder of Goetheian Science that will become a major influence later in the 19th Century.

    4. John Quincy Adams: 1767-1848. The son of John and Abigail Adams, John Quincy became the 6th President of the United States. Later, he was also a strong supporter of the Anti Freemasonry Party and wrote the book Letters on Freemasonry[4]. He later joined the Anti slave, Whig Party. However, it’s his work as a senator and not as President that had a lasting impact, and has become overshadowed by other more prominent presidents of that century like Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.

    5. Napoleon Bonaparte: 1769-1821. We know all about the legendary French emperor. But what history has kept too itself is that Napoleon established Freemasonic Temples all over his kingdom[5]; and spent a considerable amount of resources in Egypt and other esoteric sites. It led to world wide growth and exposure of Freemasonry.
    6. William Morgan: 1777-1826? Captain William Morgan was a Royal Arch degree Freemason. In 1826 he wrote a book that exposed all the current secrets of the society. And before it was published, William Morgan had disappeared from civilization. It was this event that sparked the Anti Masonic Movement [6].

10 Enlightened and Creative Leaders History has Forgotten

Great leadership is not written in stone. It is often a silent code within. Take these ten forgotten leaders, who helped to shape our present world beyond recognition. And for those who seek the powers of true leadership, seek no further then within yourself, like the souls listed below. A good start indeed for anyone interested in becoming the best leader they can possibly be. So here it is. The Ten Most Enlightened and Creative Leaders History has Forgotten.

  1. enheduannapoetleader
    Enheduanna: According to Ancient.eu, she was the daughter of Sargon the Great, king of Akkad; and is the first author in history known by name [1]. She wrote hymns and composed the earliest known attempts at musical composition. Ancient.eu also points out the fact that her father entrusted her with the responsibility over the most powerful temple in his kingdom. In fact, seven years ago, when I first came across Enheduanna in historical texts, the only thing known about her was that her name was also probably the first pen name in history; and that she lived around 2285-2250 BCE. Now it seems, shes one of the most important figures in the history of literature and music.
  2. Imhotep: According to brittanica.com, he was a vizier, sage, architect, astrologer and chief minister to Djoser between 2630 and 2611 [2]. Besides being one of histories first Renaissance Men, Imhotep would later rise to the status of Egyptian God of Medicine. And, all of this, from a man who was said to be born without Royal blood. It takes great leadership to be placed on the level of the king, and great wisdom to raise even higher to that of a god.
  3. Pythagoras*: iep.upm.edu, or the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, says that he was a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher who was one part into mathematics and science; and the other half mystic teacher [3]. Little is known about the historical Pythagoras, but the impact of his Universities, the first in mainland Europe, and the invention of Philosophy, a term coined by Pythagoras, and his innovations in the fields of mathematics, had a lasting impact on the direction of Greek Education and leadership for thousands of years.    hildegardofbingen
  4. Hildegarde of Bingen: According to the website, fransicianmedia.org, she was an “Abbess, artist, author, composer, mystic, pharmacist, poet, preacher, theologian”[4]. She lived between 1098 & 1179. The Franciscan Media article also points out how she designed features to the Abby she founded in Bingen which included things like indoor plumbing.  One of the worlds greatest leaders and genius of all time..
  5. Sir. Thomas Moore: Biography.com says that Thomas Moore was a Philosopher, Journalist, Saint and Lawyer who was martyred for his refusal to accept King Henry the VIII as the head of the Church of England [5]. However, he also wrote the travel story Utopia, and was the first to use this now common term. He also fought heavily for human rights and was a key leader in Theo-Humanitarianism, that saw religion as an individual choice.
  6. Sir. Francois Bacon*: Bio.com states that he was an English Scientist and Lawyer who lived between 1561 and 1626 [6]. He was also a high priest of the English sector of Rosicrucianism; and wrote the travel story, New Atlantis.
  7. Johannes von Gothe*: According to online-literature.com, Goethe was a “German poet, playwright, novelist, and natural philosopher” [7] He is best known for his adaptation of the Faust legend. However, he was also an original member of the Illuminati; and the foundation behind Rudolph Steiner’s Goethean Science. What makes him a leader is how he used his celebrity status to advance human knowledge with a lasting impression that rivals that of any of his more recognized peers.
  8. Rudolph Steiner: The Rudolf Steiner Archive at rsarchive.org, gives a brief description of his literary career and achievements [8]. But he was more than just a author of spiritual science, Steiner was also an architect, artist and mastermind behind systems of agriculture, education and more. He also founded Anthropsphy. He lived between 1861 and 1925. His leadership skills come to play throughout his long career as a lecturer, spiritual teacher and as a religious organizer.
  9. Manly P. Hall*: The Manly P. Hall archive at manlyphall.org says that he was a Canadian Born author and mystic who lived between 1901 and 1900 [9]. He was a high ranking member of Free Masons and considered one of the greatest Masonic historians, who wrote his massive Sacred Teaching of All Ages at the age of 28. He also started the Theosophy Organization. His leadership can be seen, like Stiener, as an Ivy league professor, lecturer and high priest of the many secret organizations and mystery schools he belonged too. aug12blatvasky
  10. Madame Blavatsky*: The website Crystalinks.com says that, “Helena Petrovna Blavatsky was a Russian occultist, spirit medium, and author who co-founded the Theosophical Society in 1875”. You could say she, along with Aliester Crowley, began the Spiritualist movement and is the mother of men like Manly P. Hall and Rudolph Steiner. But, this list began with a woman, and I thought it should end with one. Blavatsky lived between 1831 and 1891. Her leadership is also unparalleled, pushing forward a movement that briefly changed the Mid Western United States, the world; and years after her death, the Nazis who saw power in the Thelma Societies racist ideologies.
