The Seagull and the Raven

In 1913, Carl Jung, the Swiss psychoanalyst and artist had a terrifying vision on the eve of the Great War (1914-18)—concerning what lay in wait for Europe—along with its on-going implications for the world as a whole and the chain-reaction the results of his premonition would unleash upon the human psyche. In October of that year, while Jung was out travelling, he was overcome by a paralysing vision in which he witnessed a monstrous flood covering all the northern and low-lying lands between the North Sea and the Alps which eventually turned to a tsunami of human blood. This vision lasted about one hour. Years later, he wrote. “As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is "man" in a higher sense—he is "collective man"—one who carries and shapes the unconscious, psychic forms of mankind.”   
What Jung was describing was the almost supernatural ability of artists to predict the future as powerful symbolic, synchonicities which are undeniable in their meaning. The reason for this may lie in the mysterious asymmetry of the human brain, whereby artists tend to develop a kind of  'background vision' which allows a more noetic and intuitive insight into the collective unconscious of the human condition. A condition that binds us all at the subconscious level and exists outside the realities of space and time. Artists appear to have a kind of allegorical future vision and this is then presented in the form of symbolic creative works which reveal their prophetic nature when the actual event(s) arrive. This is one of the reasons why artists are so highly sought after by popes, politicians, Wall Street and Madison Avenue advertising agencies in order for the Lords of Perception to cast their future realities forward in time, rather than allow artists to present the future before anyone else is aware of on-coming events. This is why ritual magic was known for hundreds of years simply as 'The Art'. 
On the day that Adolf Hitler was born, Friedrich Nietzsche wrote. “I know my fate. One day my name will be associated with the memory of something tremendous—a crisis without equal on earth, the most profound collision of conscience, a decision that was conjured up against everything that had been believed, demanded, hallowed so far.” 

When Adolf Hitler's mother was about to deliver her son, the painter Franz von Stuck was working on a painting entitled Die Wilde Jagd (Wild Chase) portraying a vicious image of Wotan—Teutonic god of death and destruction. The mad night hunter who leaves horror and mayhem in his wake—bearing an uncanny resemblance to the adult Adolf Hitler complete with forelock over the left temple, intense eyes and even a small moustache amid a landscape of ravished women and scattered corpses. Later it was to become one of Adolf Hitler's favourite paintings along with another painting by von Stuck of Medusa bearing an uncanny resemblance to Hitler's mother Klara Hitler. 


In early 2010 I kept having vivid dreams about a battle in the sky involving a Raven (or similar black corvid) and a Sea Gull. I even decorated the cover of one of my sketch books at the time with the imagery. I could not understand what this meant. I went through all possible dream reference sources and nothing really came to the fore. Around the same time I created a video poem entitled The Ravens of March. 

I also created a series of tarot cards with raven symbolism.

and I painted unusual Sea Gull paintings

Since then, I have painted numerous paintings of seagulls and ravens/crow/rooks. The image just kept playing with my subconsciousness. Why these two birds? Why not any other and why in 2010, the same year I decided to myself, I would write a book and make videos on the Psychopathic Control Grid so people could understand what we are up against in the corridors of power. Eventually, I was to write two books on the subject: one with a Black cover and the other with a white cover to represent the Raven and Gull.

The symbolism of the Gull and Raven in a battle in the sky always took place in the early part of the year and culminated in the month of March.

Last week this happened in Vatican, during a 'Peace' service and in front of the world's media. I'll leave others to provide the theories. I am not going to claim anything or invent a theory. I am just waiting to see what it all means. However, I do know one thing and many others share it with me at this very moment. A sensation that evil forces are on the march...

It will be March in 7 days from now.

The Anvil of the Psyche is considered a vital manual for personal and social survival in a world controlled by greed and false hopes. Thomas' writings and interviews have evolutionised people to build a firewall around their own psyche and not to be lured into handing over personal independence to an exterior collective or guru. As a result, his NO CONTACT EVER AGAIN philosophy applied to controlling individuals and groups has made Thomas an enemy of mind-controlled death cults and neo-Nazi fringe groups.  Thomas has also been featured in several films and documentaries.
