“What is the Truth?”
by Isaac George
“Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics." – Mark Twain's Own Autobiography: The Chapters from the North American Review
“This eclipse is about our relationship to truth and lies. Mercury retrograde in Gemini would be enough to evoke that theme; square Neptune is triple word score. Add an eclipse to it and we are talking about a balance upon which hangs our path to the future. The truth is a controversial topic. Today we pretend it does not exist, or rather, that one’s personal truth takes precedence over what is proven by repeated experimentation, or what is subject to such proof. This is a toxic comfort zone.” – Eric Francis Coppolino, writing on the Solar Eclipse conjunct Mercury Retrograde in Gemini and square to Neptune in Pisces June 8th 2021
"People are often offended by the knowledge they need most. We resist our deepest education...While we seek agreement, protection and security, our best path may be toward discomfort." - John P. Conger, "Jung and Reich". – Excerpt from the chapter "Unmasking Evil" from "Not In His Image" by John Lash.
“People will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacity to think.” – Aldous Huxley
“The masses have never thirsted after truth. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim. – Gustave le Bon (1841-1931)
"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell
Well, after all that, what more could I possibly add? Oh, quite a bit, I think. The Solar Eclipse in Gemini was the backdrop for my beginning this article, and the effects of the Astroevent and the Lunar Eclipse on May 26th will be defining and reflecting much of our experience for the next six months. Today’s event could be a firecracker or a damp squib, but with it conjoined to Mercury Retro and squaring Neptune, it is a gut check for the “truth”. Neptunian types will colour truth with brushstrokes of subjectivity and relativism, like “Truth is mutable”, or “truth depends on one’s perspective.” Or something like that. But nuts and bolts truth, truth based on evidence and not just on direct experience is becoming a rare thing. Both eclipses involved Sagittarius, the archetype of truth and faith seeking. So, no matter what we would like the truth to be, Sag demands more. Sag demands “The Truth”. Orwell expressed it with this statement: “However much you deny the truth, the truth goes on existing."
There are numerous factors that muddy the waters and have been for a long time. Electrical interference, mass media, digital distraction, the end of the Kali Yuga, etc. However, if we are at all interested in truth, with or without a capital “T”, then we will need to parse through our values and our relationship to truth in general. That begins with an honest and critical assessment of just how much lying goes on. We all lie in many small ways. If you doubt that, get a hold of the book “Radical Honesty” by Dr Brad Blanton. I used to own a copy, but my friend Eric mentioned it in a recent blog of his and I am going to order it up again.
We are living in much more made-up reality than at any time in human history, and it is an age that is riddled with disinformation, misdirection and sleight of hand. I remember when it began during the 1980’s. When cornered by an eager beaver journalist, some official or politician would blurt out something they would later regret. The apology, by that politician or his handlers would end up being something like this: “Mr So and So misspoke.” The word lie became a no-go zone. It still is. Prior to that watershed moment, in politics, religion or business, if somebody lied and evidence was presented that proved it, the offending party would be removed from their position. Think Richard M. Nixon and the Watergate scandal. Nixon left office in shame. Today, mere denial is sufficient to quell deeper inquiry or uncomfortable questions. In a few days, no one remembers.
A recent example is the grilling that Sen. Rand Paul gave Dr Anthony Fauci while the latter was under oath. Then Buzzfeed releases loads of (redacted) emails belonging to Fauci that shows, in substance, that Fauci “misspoke”. Forty-eight hours after that, it disappeared off everyone’s radar and down Orwell’s Memory Hole. This would have been unthinkable and untenable in the pre-Internet Age, before our attention spans took a major hit from digital everything and information overwhelm.
Astral amnesia (Neptune) is like an opiate. Couple that with the fact that everyone is simply busier than God trying to keep going and you have recipe for the death of evidence, fact, and empirical/objective truth. It simply disappears under an avalanche of noise.
We all have the capacity for holding Truth sacred, and coming into the understanding how destructive continuing to tolerate lies and deception is. It takes hard work, especially when it comes to how we detect and work with the areas in which we can deceive ourselves…or have allowed others to deceive us (intentionally or otherwise), and ultimately all betrayal is self-betrayal.
So do not give up on truth or Truth. It does not have to be a victim of the digital noise, and neither should you be. Be like a Sagittarian, always passionately seeking and finding Faith and Truth. How you feel about yourself in the quest for the Truth, and in the finding of even one fragment of something that is true is something you own forever.

Humanity is now living in a sea of invisible artificial electromagnetic waves that almost surrounds and permeates our planetary biosphere. This has occurred with such speed that we hardly have taken the time to study any long-term effects on health or the environment. Is this necessarily a good thing, or is it impacting our minds, emotions and physical bodies in ways that we are barely aware of? What impact does all electricity and wireless technology possibly have on other species, including plants and even the planet’s magnetic and etheric fields and are there potential links to the cycle of pandemics and ecological disruptions that have erupted since the middle of the 19th Century? The renowned Christian mystic and educator Rudolf Steiner had some strong doubts as to the safety of electricity, and the effects it would have on the spiritual awareness of people. I will cover some guidance on how we can mitigate any adverse on our health and wellbeing, and how we can empower ourselves and others to reclaim our natural selves and guarantee a human future.
