Applied Ontology

Applied Ontology focuses on information content in its broadest sense. As the subtitle makes clear, two broad kinds of content-based research activities are envisioned: ontological analysis and conceptual modeling. The former includes any attempt to investigate the nature and structure of a domain of interest using rigorous philosophical or logical tools; the latter concerns the cognitive and linguistic structures we use to model the world, as well as the various analysis tools and methodologies we adopt for producing useful computational models, such as information systems schemes or knowledge structures.

Fraternity of the Hidden Light

The Fraternity of the Hidden Light is an Esoteric Order in the Western Mystery Tradition, tracing direct lineage to the great English Order at the turn of the 20th century, known as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Like the Golden Dawn, the Fraternity of the Hidden Light practices a system of spiritual disciplines best described as Hermetic Qabalah. Hermetic Wisdom is a combination of ideas based on the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus (the legendary Egyptian Master of Masters). The Qabalah is a dynamic system of Judeo-Christian theosophy, mysticism, and theurgy founded on ancient teachings and based on the tradition practiced by the ancient Essenes (whose members included John the Baptist and Jesus).

Gnostic Catholic Apostolic Church

“The Gnostic Church has for its essential goal the restoration of primitive religious unity to humanity, that is, of making him aware of the errors within various religions and the establishment of a religion that is compliant to the universal tradition and thereby truly ‘catholic.’ “Based on the one hand, on the universal tradition (of all civilized people) and not only on the Hebrew tradition of the Bible, and on the other hand on philosophy and modern science, its truth does not present itself as faith, but as things that are demonstrable as in philosophy and science, and addresses Reason, which is the same in all men.

Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

The organization devoted to the study and practice of the occult, metaphysics, and paranormal activities during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Known as a magical order, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was active in Great Britain and focused its practices on theurgy and spiritual development. Many present-day concepts of ritual and magic that are at the centre of contemporary traditions, such as Wicca and Thelema, were inspired by the Golden Dawn, which became one of the largest single influences on 20th-century Western occultism.

International Gnostic Association of Anthropological Studies (IGAAS)

Canadian branch of IGA (Institut Gnostique d’Anthropologie) which over sees and directs multiple Gnostic associations around the planet. Gnosis is, in its essence, a natural ability of our consciousness that perceives reality objectively, without the intervention of thought process, prejudices, preconceptions etc. Through the knowledge of self (Nosce te Ipsum), anthropological studies of past civilizations, various religions of the world and mystical currents, mythological and philosophical issues of history of humanity, Gnostic students will discover the necessary tools to deepen their knowledge of themselves and awaken their lost faculty.

Le Nouveau Penser

The “New Thought” movement was born in Boston in 1895. Then appeared many independent schools that were grouped, since 1914, under the auspices of the International New Thought Alliance (INTA). In Quebec, the New Thought movement is represented by the spiritual organization Le Nouveau Penser founded in Montreal in 1981 by Reverend Bernard Cantin.

This center proposes a Gnostic spiritual approach, which places a preponderance on knowledge (or gnosis) or on the recognition of one’s own truth. This gnosis is a spiritual teaching that frees the human from his limitations and shows him how to take charge of his life. It is a teaching that allows one to become free beings. Conscious of the infinite power that lies dormant in each of us, we can discover it and use it advantageously in our life.

Since 1987, the New Thinker of Montreal is recognized as a religious corporation. Her pastors, men and women, teach the psycho-spiritual approach of the New Thinking, accompany people through the different stages of their lives and celebrate baptisms, weddings and funerals in accordance with the religious and spiritual beliefs of each.

Many version of Erudite magic may be found through the Mesopotamian ‘spiritual’ (or ‘magical’) cuneiform texts. The incantation tablets from the ‘Mardukite’ Babylonian Anunnaki tradition, specifically those used and forged by scribe-priests of the Order of Nabu, are invoked from the ‘perspective’ (authority) of NABU – as was the tradition learned verbatim from MARDUK. In both scholarly and esoteric ‘Mardukite’ texts, the ‘Opening Ritual’ of Mardukite magic is derived from the source titled: “The Incantation of Eridu.”

NexGen Systemology

The paradigm encompassing NexGen Systemology is to look beneath this very surface in question and clearly and self-honestly take in a wide angle, holistic, all inclusive – systematic – way of experiencing the inner world of thought and its relationship with the outer world of forms. As the lens pierces deeper and deeper into the fabric of space and time – reality – the continuity, entangled and interconnected nature of these inner and outer realms blurs and we see that the weave and the fabric – the light and the screen – are all, in themselves, composed of the same energetic vibration that spurs out forth from the most primeval and primordial ripple of the void.

NexGen Systemology is a division of the Mardukite Research Organization (MRO) in cooperation with the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press and its affiliates (Mardukite Chamberlains, et al.).

He says that Fear and Guilt is the only thing that separates you from the Truth of who you already are and what you already know in the depth of your being.
