I think I’ve figured Sonic the Hedgehog out...
Having found Sonic games appealing since a young age, I’ve always wondered what exactly it was that attracted a core group to this character despite having many games that didn’t live up to expectation. Then I started meditating and reading up on ancient religions & esoteric mysticism… today it all hit me at once:
Then I went deeper…
And even deeper…
For Millennia, information about non-physical things were usually disseminated by prophets who would gather people around them (back when most people were either working for survival or bored as hell). This esoteric knowledge was passed down through mystery cults, parts of which were spread passively through religion in order to survive. Were people to see “prophets” today, they’d just call them crazy and cross the street to avoid them, so the deeper message had to survive through other means. Especially when most people are too busy to bother with figuring why we are here in a world so full of noise in the form of entertainment that the Ego feeds on with an insatiable hunger.
The only way to keep the message would then be to contain the signal within the noise.. in the more recent past this could be seen in the harmonious music of Mozart, then the mind expanding rock music of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, etc (as well as re-introducing the world to psychedelics that had long ago been instrumental in cultures connecting with the divine)
Today, most music is pretty bland and empty (and raised a generation of bland and empty people) but I don’t think the signal itself has stopped being broadcast. My hope is that we all try to figure out what exactly we are here for based on the wisdom of those who had to use their minds hell of a lot more than we need to today, but this means not taking the time we have here for granted and making the most of it. I encourage everyone to dig deeper & make each moment count.. work on your body and mind & recover what was lost.
The signals are around us in the most unlikely of places but whether or not you want to listen and learn is up to you.

It is the mission of Sacred Geometry International and The Cosmographic Research Institute to investigate and document the catastrophic history of the world and the evidence for advanced knowledge in earlier cultures; through educational programs to advance a deeper understanding of the implications of this knowledge for both past and the future of planet Earth and Human civilization upon it; and to promote strategies for successfully coping with the inevitable change that is to come.
