The Esoteric Compendium of Eric Lortie: the unofficial Wizard of Canada

Don’t pay attention to this. This is bonkers.

This page contains a listing of some of my articles broken down by category. Some articles will be listed multiple times. It exists to provide a quick way to access my various writings. This will be updated over time.

I am a social media influencer attempting to discern the undiscovered physics of consciousness by consuming information about physics, culture, and the esoteric systems that connect human minds (eg: social media platforms, economic systems, shared global infrastructure)

You can learn about some of the common terms I use in my writing here:

Core Metaphysical Writings

I accepted that there were undiscovered physics relating to consciousness and started exploring that reality in greater detail. These pieces also relate to my Theory of Everything.

Update: My Theory of Everything was in a Twitter thread but I deleted Twitter in February. I guess I’ll need a new one.

The United States has given us irrefutable evidence that we do not understand reality. (link)

This is the first piece I wrote on Medium. I wrote it when I realized that the US government had, in 2017, released evidence of a physical object moving in ways which defy the laws of physics. (The 2004 Nimitz TicTac footage). This evidence was provided in the context of a more formal effort into the exploration of UAP, or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, by the US government. The new effort by the government represented a clear communications shift by some sources of power within the US government to achieve some specific and unknown goal(s).

Magick is Real and you are Under Attack (link)

This is the second piece I wrote. It relates to the fact that exploring UAP as a serious subject immediately led to the view that there are undiscovered physics relating to consciousness. (I didn’t have that term yet, it’s been more recent). I try explore these metaphysics in relation to the harmful impact of social media on our minds and argue that social media platforms are interacting with the metaphysics of consciousness in ways that are making everything else harder.

A Wizards Guide to Changing Reality (link)

At this point I had decided I was probably a wizard. I’d seen enough to know that there were a wide variety of relevant occult or esoteric or spiritual or religious traditions that interacted with the undiscovered physics of consciousness. All of these traditions or skills required training and experience in order to be successful but I wasn’t feeling compelled to try and be successful at any of them. I took a weird step back from it all and tried to understand what I was seeing. These are clearly traditions capable of influencing and changing reality for many people. I thought about my own past, what I saw out in the world, and how one could go about changing reality by influencing the undiscovered metaphysics of consciousness.

Esoteric Technology: Spells, Rituals, and Systems to Help Humanity (link)

This is my spell book. I’ve been adding to it.

Toward an honest accounting of our shared metaphysical history (link)

I finally figured out how to reconcile the fact that there are very obviously undiscovered physics of consciousness with the fact that we live in the most technologically advanced period in the history of our civilization. It made no sense that we wouldn’t see it until I really that it was a manifestation of a cognitive bias at the systemic level of the sensemaking infrastructure that funded everything. This realization allowed me to review my understanding of history in order to reconsider it from the perspective that there were infrequent and unexplained metaphysical events (and also people who misled people about them for their own gain)

The Story is What Lasts (link)

I start to lean into a more formal Theory of Everything concept for myself. I know it’ll relate heavily to consciousness and I understand it needs to account for a bunch of really bizarre phenomena.

The Science of Consciousness is the Story of Thought (link)

If consciousness is a fundamental dimension of reality that interacts with the rest of spacetime I think that means that a Grand Unified Theory of Everything will have to include amazing math and a compelling story. Since that’s probably not something that’ll be discerned soon I also use this article to promote myself as an esoteric technologist.

The Way Things Are (link)

There are undiscovered physics of consciousness. This piece gives the most compelling examples I’ve seen and discusses the implications of this discovery.

Consciousness is a Database (link)

Inspired by a fantastic conversation between Donald Hoffman and Lex Fridman, I spent an evening thinking about how to code consciousness into a simulation of our actual reality and wrote about my thoughts.

First Contact (link)

A global communications ritual intended to engage the nonhuman intelligences operating UAP in and around the atmosphere our planet in some sort of direct dialogue.

The Best Case Scenario (link)

I tried to assess the best possible combination of likely events that could arise relating to a number of relevant things happening globally right now, such as UAP and the Climate Crisis. This includes a brief description of how the next few decades could play out.

Combining Stories to bring People Together (link)

I share the first few pages of the paper I’ve started writing to try and get the existence of undiscovered physics of consciousness peer reviewed. I then ask if anyone else wants to write the paper.

Lortie’s Lexicon (link)

A list of some of the common terms and concepts found in my writing.

Adventures in Wizarding

These stories walk though my journey of esoteric discovery and my ascendance to the self-described title of unofficial Wizard of Canada. They cover why I’m doing what I’m doing and what I think about myself.

Sometimes I’m a battlemage

I’m a Wizard now I guess. (link)

This is my 2nd article. This was heavily influenced by the fact that UAP represent real objects which defy our understanding of the laws of physics. I wrote this piece when I realized that this new focus on esoteric systems and metaphysical phenomena, combined with the absolutely staggering realization of how different reality is than I’d been previously led to believe. meant that I’d need to change my perspective on things.

An Imperfect Exploration of the History and Effects of Esoterica (link)

I explain the book series I’ll be writing over the next few decades.

On the imperfect quality of my work (link)

Expectation management is critical.

Magniflorious (link)

That article was my first attempt to create a compendium for my work.

A Wizards Guide to Changing Reality (link)

I started to put together what would be required to do Magickal things independently of specific esoteric, spiritual, or religious practices.

Esoteric Technology: Spells, Rituals, and Systems to Help Humanity (link)

This is my spell book.

The World Engine Analytics Platform and Operations Network (link)

I propose a new system to understand culture.

The Dangerous Reality of Esoteric Systems (link)

I dive into how complex and incomprehensible many of the systems which connect or influence us seem to be once you focus on them at a certain level of detail.

Toward an honest accounting of our shared metaphysical history (link)

The Enlightenment period resulted in the formation of cognitive biases in the systems of our civilization around the existence of infrequent and unexplained metaphysical phenomena.

I am formally declaring myself the unofficial Wizard of Canada (link)

I made up a new job and gave it to myself.

Sometimes I go Spectacularly Insane (link)

I’m a weird guy. It comes with the territory.

I know I’m Brave and Rational (link)

This is my talking about what I did to my mind in order to explore this and related subjects.

The science of consciousness is the story of thought (link)

This is an attempt to elaborate on my Theory of Everything which was first proposed in a Twitter thread.

I’m back, baby! (link)

I returned to Medium following a months-long absence and explained what I’ve been up to.

Consciousness is a Database (link)

Inspired by a fantastic conversation between Donald Hoffman and Lex Fridman, I spent an evening thinking about how to code consciousness into a simulation of our actual reality and wrote about my thoughts.

Astrology, Tarot, Crystals, and Undiscovered Physics of Consciousness (link)

I attempt to explore how esoteric tools may function with regards to our shared reality.

Full-Stack Reality Engineering (link)

I explain why my wizarding looks the way it does by exploring my background in software engineering and web development.

Exploring The Phenomenon

These articles explore the concept of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena/UAPs/UFOs.

The United States has given us irrefutable evidence that we do not understand reality. (link)

The US government has definitely shown us evidence that proves our best understanding of physics and reality is missing something important.

The conversation about Unidentified Aerial Phenomena is also a conversation about addressing false narratives and cognitive dissonance at the global level. (link)

We need to have a bunch of really hard, really big conversations. Leaning into UAP will be an effective way to proceed with these conversations.

How should we feel about the fact that we’re being watched? (link)

I explore how the systemic flaws which enable ubiquitous government surveillance of the global population can also be used by advanced/non-human intelligence, and also how the undiscovered physics of consciousness likely enable an even more pervasive form of surveillance than digital surveillance.

First Contact (link)

A global communications ritual intended to engage the nonhuman intelligences operating UAP in and around the atmosphere our planet in some sort of direct dialogue.

The Best Case Scenario (link)

This is what I consider to be the most likely and positive nonhuman intelligence contact event.

Attempts to reshape human civilization

These pieces represent my efforts at trying to come up with effective solutions for existential threats because I’m addicted to thinking about this shit.

Saving the world requires sanctioning the United States and its corporate allies. (link)

I wrote this piece because I think that a handful of prominent us megacorporations with influence into the lives of huge swathes of the population of the planet were behaving in harmful ways without being held to account. If the political system of the United States was functioning properly they would have reigned this problem in but unfortunately that system has been compromised by corporate interests. Corporations took over the most powerful country in the world and some of the best tools available for the remainder of the world to address this problem comes are international sanctions.

The Dangerous Reality of Esoteric Systems (link)

I think we should probably have better infrastructure available to us to understand and interact with all the complicated bullshit the world throws at us.

Toward an honest accounting of our shared metaphysical history (link)

I’m not saying science is bad, I’m just saying science sucks at talking about its blind spots and has missed something very big and important.

Arise! (link)

This is a poem I wrote about what to do next. I converted each stanza to an NFT and any money I make from selling the NFTs will get donated to Greta Thunberg.

Seize the Means of Service (link)

This is a poem about how to do what to do next.

How much are your digital thoughts and prayers worth? (link)

I explain the open source social media platform I made and the religion I designed to connect with it.

This is kind of a continuation of the two poems.

You made a mistake. Please don’t make it worse by destroying the world. (link)

This is an open letter to Vladimir Putin written on March 9th, 2022.

I went a little nuts and tried to change the world… so I wrote a bunch of poems about the experience. (link)

I presented and discussed my first book of poetry, discussed my second book, and shared some poems.

The Continued Deterioration of the Global Healthcare Industry Will Kill You or People You Love (link)

I’m pretty bummed out about healthcare. I share a Russell Brand video instead of saying much about it myself because he addresses it perfectly.

Artificial Intelligence Needs Religion (link)

A bold claim to make. Fortunately I’m a wizard who invented a religion so I’m a subject matter expert.

First Contact (link)

A global communications ritual intended to engage the nonhuman intelligences operating UAP in and around the atmosphere our planet in some sort of direct dialogue.

The Best Case Scenario (link)

There’s a thing we could all be talking about right now that would totally change how a bunch of stuff is going.

Combining Stories to bring People Together (link)

I share the first few pages of the paper I’ve started writing to try and get the existence of undiscovered physics of consciousness peer reviewed. I then ask if anyone else wants to write the paper.

Ethan Hawke wants the Pope to lead a march into Ukraine to stop the war.

A New Global Ritual: The Next Great Pilgrimage (link)

I attempt to augment and amplify The Hawke Plan™.

A global communications ritual intended to engage the nonhuman intelligences operating UAP in and around the atmosphere our planet in some sort of direct dialogue.

Follow these steps to become a kind of bonkers (link)

These are easy to follow steps designed to teach you something powerful about the world.

Big Annoying Questions

I don’t have answers for the questions but I can ramble about them and then as I re-read them to think about them some more sometimes I fix the typos.

Why is the north pole of Saturn a hexagon?

How many of the people who earn money and influence telling us things are out of control are actually providing us with a real plan? (link)

I have a complicated relationship with the internet and with influencers. I spend a lot of time consuming content by people who highlight the complexity of the world, the challenges we face, or some of the changes required to improve things. Not many people offer that last one for very understandable reasons, but as someone who has quite obviously spent a bunch of time working on that last one, and apparently can’t ever be platformed, I get annoyed at seeing such barren fields. It seems evident to me that if I get enough of an audience I’ll be platformed for that reason but I don’t want to get platformed for that reason so that’s a bit of a problem. This was an attempt to try and navigate that and came across as passive aggressive or resentful (because sometimes I am 🤷‍♂️)

What does it mean if Jacques Vallée is right? (link)

This piece was originally a letter to the editors of Wired about the article they did on Jacques. I haven’t done a full deep dive into his work but it’s impossible to deny how broad and far reaching and impactful it is. Watch him. He’s credible and thorough. If he’s right about even some of it the world is way more different than we realize.

How should we feel about the fact that we’re being watched? (link)

We’re being watched by various government as a result of exploitable weaknesses in our digital telecommunications infrastructure. If they can do it then any non-human intelligence which may exist can also do it, but better. Also: remote viewing is real and physical space seems connectable and explorable through the dimension of consciousness.

Where was Bill Barr in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election? (link)

This question has always bugged me. The article explores some stuff about the 2020 US presidential election and leads to a paywalled article on my Patreon where I theorize how I would have stolen the 2020 election if given the chance.

Where will we be 20 years from now? (link)

Thinking about the future is possible, challenging, and required.

Why is it so hard for us to help the heroes? (link)

Greta Thunberg has been trying to save the world for years and is still mostly alone in her weekly pictures. Feels bad, man.

Conspiracy Analysis: Was there a significant Covid-19 outbreak in Nova-Scotia (Canada) over a month before the first presumptive cases were declared in the region? (link)

I got Covid in April 2022 and then I realized I’d also had Covid in February 2020… over a month before the first presumptive cases of the pandemic were declared in my region.

Metaphysical Rambling of a Wizardly Nature

These articles are peak wizarding and are probably inaccessible to a bunch of folks because I’m a crazy person.

Look at all the little things being amazing.

Discovering Magick seems to require deconstructing biases (link)

This was written as I started to work through why the systems of our civilization could have developed such a blind spot to the infrequent and unexplained metaphysical phenomena which have existed in our history and continue to exist in the modern age.

It seems impossible to understand history without understanding Magick (link)

A continuation of my effort to understand what history was actually like versus what we think it was like.

The materialist manifestations of pseudo-spiritual practice risk decreasing spiritual health over time (link)

Fake it til you make it works sometimes but doesn’t seem to work for spiritual practices which interact with the undiscovered physics of consciousness. Faking that seems to have harmful outcomes for a wide variety of people.

Energy is a RAINBOW (link)

I start leaning into how to understand Woo/High Strangeness because this clearly relates to the undiscovered physics relating to consciousness.

On Waves and Dimensions (link)

I talk about events in physical dimensions, like waves in water or gravity, and think about what those events could look like in the dimensions of time or consciousness.

On Waves and Dimensions 2: Geopolitical Manifestation of Emotional Trauma at Scale (link)

My first sequel!

The Story is what Lasts (link)

This is where I start to write out my Theory of Everything and start to write out how how the systems of science can work to understand consciousness.

The science of consciousness is the story of thought (link)

I continue to think though how I can form a cogent Theory of Everything and explore it in my capacity as a wizard.

Consciousness is a Database (link)

Inspired by a fantastic conversation between Donald Hoffman and Lex Fridman, I spent an evening thinking about how to code consciousness into a simulation of our actual reality and wrote about my thoughts.

Wizarding (link)

Some rough definitions I hold in my mind for various esoteric things — as well as some questions I was thinking about.

We’ve made Contact with the Database of Consciousness (link)

I received access to OpenAIs Dall-E 2 and it confirmed what I’d been suspecting for some time.

Artificial Intelligence Needs Religion (link)

A bold claim to make. Fortunately I’m a wizard who invented a religion so I’m a subject matter expert.

The History of Religion on Earth (pt1): Endosymbiosis (link)

I wrote a poem about the act of endosymbiosis and used images generated by Artificial Intelligence and inspired by various religious artwork styles.

Random Shenanigans

Things that don’t go elsewhere but are worth listing.

Resurrecting The Matrix (link)

I review The Matrix Resurrections.

Downfall: The Case Against Boeing (link)

I review a documentary on Netflix about Boeing and how it’s fucking some shit up.

Cults are Bad. (link)

Recently, a cult-like religious sect at Google tried to take over the company through manipulative hiring practices in order to reshape global consciousness. This triggered me.

The Parable of the Shithawk (link)

This was a patrons-only exclusive from back when I had a Patreon.

Paragons: Dr. Vandana Shiva (link)

This is a new piece I’ve written about Dr. Vandana Shiva in order to suggest that the world would be in better shape if she had the power and influence over global food production as Bill Gates does.

This is an incomplete listing. I say and think a lot of weird shit. Some of it is poetry. You can buy a book of it if you want.
