Everyone sees, interprets, and comprehends symbols that trigger a “synching” feeling. We also decide how these symbols and archetypes fit into our lives and guide us. In order to bring a deeper meaning and purpose to ourselves, we should embrace and learn everything about symbols, sigils, and secret alphabets. Additionally, we should understand the mathematics of chance and synchronicity and ultimately use these methods as an oracle of the future. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with esoteric author and host of The Secret Teachings, Ryan Gable about PRINCIPIA DISCORDIA – SYMBOLS AND THE SYNCHRONICITY ORACLE.






As I was contemplating the show, I wanted to present my comeback opus — I wanted to go back to my roots for a moment and demonstrate what the whole foundation of Ground Zero is about. Apart from the obvious being connected to a nuclear event — or a massive extinction-level event, Ground Zero has always been creating an undercurrent of things that are synchronistic and paranormal.

The bizarre in everything from religion to politics but also in everyday life and even with regard to scientific discoveries.

I think most people will agree there are more things on the horizon that we can discover—meaning that we can still learn how to read minds, or we may all realize that we are telekinetic. We may find out the aliens we are looking for are right in front of us.   We can eliminate cancer, or fly to distant solar systems.  But just because we are making fiction nonfiction we are far from breaking the code on how the universe works.

When I got back I had to play catch up with the whole Barbenheimer phenomenon that I predicted weeks before it happened.  Ryan Gable and I talked about the social engineering that was underway – where both movies were meant to reprogram the masses. From the patriarchy – and the same patriarchy that gave us the atom bomb. Of course, now Barbie is the savior of women’s equality and perhaps we can all think that we know all that we need to know about atoms, the smallest building blocks of nature thanks to Dr. Oppenheimer.

Thanks to the science we think all we need to know about the human body, including genomes, DNA structure, proteins, and all that scientific babble the “scientists” have told us they have “figured out.”

Is this why they are now scaring us again with the threat of the flu RSV and COVID headlines? We had 70 to 80 percent inoculation rate—we learned it is endemic – and now some people are back to saying we want the masks back on.

For those who have lost count, I think we’re up to six or seven shots now.

I remember when they were so confident about the efficacy of injecting billions of people with a gene-altering “drug.” And of course, the majority of the world said, “yeah, why not, they know what they are doing.”

What are the chances of lightning striking twice? I don’t know, let’s talk about the out-of-control fires that seem to be a yearly affair—only this time there have to be more deaths to confirm that there is a Climate Emergency.

Death is such an easy symbol to get attention—symbols rule the world and the dead make very bad witnesses especially when all that has happened recently seems a bit suspect.

It is like the world is under the control of some science fiction villainous organization like Hydra or Specter—it is all symbolic and triggering to minds that can see similarities into the predictive programming that has been unleashed in these times of fore structuring the futures of all of us.

Jean Baudrillard said in his book Simulacra and Simulation that:

“A subsequent stage is crossed once the very language of the social, after that of the political, becomes confused with this fascinating solicitation of an agitated language, once the social turns itself into advertising, turns itself over to the popular vote by trying to impose its trademark image.”

Politics are a brand every candidate has a logo – From Barack Obama and his sun symbol logo—to acronyms like MAGA make politics more of an advertising brand – that seems to be making its way into pop culture – symbolism is changing as well – I have been noticing that the Democratic party becoming uncomfortable being the party represented by a Jackass.

Symbols matter – Elephants never forget and you can lead a jackass to water but you can’t make him drink.

It is a “collective enterprise” securing its publicity on every level.

The Red State and the Blue State sound more like a Hunger Games region than political terminology.  So does the idea of dividing us into regions and 15-minute or smart cities sound like something out of the science fiction story Divergent, or Brave New World?

It all seems so coincidental – and everyone eventually sees a symbol that triggers a synching feeling.

It is now the science fiction world being made nonfiction in our lifetimes — all based on chance– randomness of something that is preordained.

You must decide if the symbols and archetypes fit into your life and guide you.

It has been written in many ancient religious writings that the signs of the ages are everywhere. They are referring to the hidden symbols and the clues that lead you to the ultimate answer — that God or the Trickster is a master of illusion — or that the whole world falls under the spell of Discordianism that needs to be exposed — using the very symbols that confuse us.

There are some of course that will say “, I don’t believe any of this, I believe science has pretty much figured out what is going on in the natural world.

This of course is said by those who could not even burst a vein over how the world is unpredictable and that we should expect the unexpected.

But this is also a product of a materialistic view of the world. All answers are provided — because the media says so, and yet there are so many mysteries that still reveal themselves to us.

We only catch a glimpse through a metaphysical keyhole — but when we find the key we will eventually open the doors of perception in a way that will certainly blow our minds as to how peculiar and truly unique we are.

Most of these “materialist types” believe that religion and spirituality are for the superstitious and feeble-minded. Therefore, anything of a metaphysical nature is cast out of the argument. Things like rituals, archetypes, dreams, even the mysterious effect that art or music has on the human psyche, are not even considered as having much importance.

I am sure there are many radio programmers out there that would rather have me drone on and on about Trump and Biden instead of digging deeper into the nuances as to why evil men get forgiven every four years at the voting booth.

It is lazy and it is full of corruption — but to say it paints you as a non-believer in the civic sacrament.

But it along with things like the Superbowl, Midnight mass, and even movie events that are social engineering like Barbenheimer are rituals –and they are loaded with all kinds of symbolism and synchronicities.

All of these arguments are essentially being cast aside, they are considered to be things that are “fully understood” or easily debunked.

They are fully understood to have no meaning and no importance.

I believe that they want this to happen because the powers in charge are using their symbols, sigils, and magic to confuse us.

They even wish to eliminate ways we communicate — the symbols that are universal are now being used for political or sexual meanings. Take a look at emojis… Let’s take a look at the eggplant emoji — it does not really mean eggplant — it is code that I am sure you can figure out.

Rainbows are now symbols of wokeness and political LGBTQ movements.  The clenched fist which has been the communist symbol for the open revolution is now the symbol for Black Lives Matter.

Cursive writing, which is of course a very artful and symbolic connection of thought is now dying out.

in 2010, the U.S. government officially removed cursive from the required Common Core Standards for K-12 education. And frankly, with laptops and tablets replacing paper, the need to learn to keyboard has become more important. So, the ability to read and write cursive has been fading from American society. This matters because many of the most important historical documents in the U.S., everything from the Declaration of Independence to the Bill of Rights, are written in cursive.

Is this a coincidence? Are we now taking away the ability of our posterity to read and understand symbols that have actually created the roadmap for our freedoms?

All the things humans have done throughout the millennia to bring meaning and purpose to their lives, every ritual, every symbol, and every powerful religion or belief system that guides them cannot be seen solely as superstition, but as life-affirming concepts, rituals, stories, imaginations, and formulations. If we keep ignoring this, we will continue to destroy ourselves.

I have always been a champion of symbolic meaning and the mind-blowing instances of synchronicity and coincidence.

Even within the relatively limited sample of your own life, there are all kinds of opportunities for coincidences to happen. When you consider all the people you know and all the places you go and all the places they go, chances are good that you’ll run into someone you know, somewhere, at some point. But it’ll still seem like a coincidence when you do. When something surprising happens, we don’t think about all the times it could have happened but didn’t. And when we include near misses as coincidences (you and your friend were in the same place on the same day, just not at the same time), the number of possible coincidences is suddenly way greater.

To demonstrate how common unlikely seeming events can be, mathematicians like to trot out what is called the birthday problem. The question is how many people need to be in a room before there’s a 50/50 chance that two of them will share the same birthday. The answer is 23.

As I said in the beginning of the year 2023 the number 23 has always been a synchronistic number that triggers supernatural synchronicities.

The Discordianists believe 23 is holy and concerns the goddess of chaos, Eris. 23rdians believe in the mystical nature of 23. There were twenty-three Grand Masters who composed The Knights Templar.

The Chinese believed the number 23 was special because it is made up of the only even prime number.

In human beings, there are twenty-three pairs of chromosomes. Additionally, the normal physical biorhythm for human beings is twenty-three days.

Principia Discordia, the sacred text of Discordianism, holds that 23 is one of the sacred numbers of Eris, the goddess of discord.

Eris, is the Greek goddess of strife and discord.

The symbol of the Five-Fingered hand of Eris is an X with a line drawn through it. There is also a symbol for the apple that is also connected to Eris.

The Golden Apple of Discord was a golden apple dropped by Eris–it is an apple that is meant to create small arguments that lead to all-out war.. it is connected to gossip and unfounded rumor.

In common parlance, the apple of discord is the core, kernel, or crux of an argument, or a small matter that could lead to a bigger dispute.

The greater coincidence and conspiracy begins with a small matter of a Covid Variant that is being called Eris — but is it a coincidence and is the symbology of the name and the presence of discord the fuel for some form of reliving a past mistake or turmoil?

Eris may be an ominous sign going by how feeble and desperate it is. That it is doomed to failure is pretty much guaranteed – or perhaps the media will leave all pretense at honesty totally behind and just lie about how scared to death the public is?

Then again they may already have done this.

But the law of diminishing returns must have set in by now. So the next move is bound to be far more directly aggressive.

In essence, Eris is the Goddess of B.S. or the Goddess of propaganda, and foolishness. The apple of Discord starts an argument.

You can count the seeds from a single apple — but you cannot count the apples from a single seed.

We do not know of the damage it that has already been done by the symbolic use of the Goddess Eris — to name a variant of something that by all accounts acts like the flu. We are not at all surprised that the number 23 is also part of the synchronistic ritual.

It is becoming more and more apparent that everything is becoming a ritual. Everything is based on powerful symbols and meanings that are attached to unknown gods and Goddesses.

As Morpheus says to Neo In the Matrix: “You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, or when go to church or when you pay your taxes.”

The book of  Ecclesiastes in the bible points to the possibility that we live in a matrix of symbols and simulacra

It says: The wise have their eyes open, the fool walks in the dark. No doubt!  But I know, too, that one fate awaits them both. ‘Since the fool’s fate’, I thought to myself, ‘will be my fate too, what is the point of my having been wise?’

I realized that this too is futile.

All of that knowledge is lost after the death of someone wise — and all that knowledge is wasted when fools die before they learn.

That is why we must embrace and learn everything about symbols, sigils, and secret alphabets. We must learn the mathematics of chance, synchronicity and use it as an oracle of the future.

In Christianity, Psalm 23, also known as the Shepherd Psalm, is possibly the most quoted and best-known Psalm. Psalms are also the 23rd book in the Douay–Rheims Bible.

The Rod and Staff are symbols mentioned in the 23rd Psalm. These are very powerful tools that the shepherds used to protect their flocks.. the symbolism of 23 and the 23rd Psalm is one of the most quoted in the bible– and yea though you walk through the shadow of death — you shall fear no evil as you have the symbols of the Rod and the staff to comfort you.

Together, the rod and staff of Psalm 23 paint a picture of the divine Shepherd who wields them. He is strong, competent, and trustworthy;– he is a warrior and when confronted may realize his victimhood only temporarily — but realizes he must be a survivor as the rod and staff are powerful tools and symbols used for direction and comfort.

Symbols and the synchronicity that accompanies them have the potential to be oracles to the future.

It is a mystery as to why human beings, seem to think that the entire workings of the universe have been “figured out.” And as such, there really is no mystery left to any of it.

I refuse to believe that we know everything — I believe there is still plenty of mystery to discover, plenty of things to reveal. It is no longer a matter of conspiracy theory — it is the exchange of ideas to better understand this unforgiving and violent existence.

We are to follow our bliss because life is just a complete series of misfortunes and pain. But we see that it is temporary as we continue to survive.

We must own our resilience and we must own what our consciousness is saying to us– the little you that is inside, that light or small voice that tells you that you must get up and try again.

    Why is there 487 years from Levi,s birth to Red Sea crossing, 487 years from Crossing to Solomons temple & 487 years from Persian permission to rebuild temple to Christs crucifixion? 4 x 487 = 1948, birth of anno mundi Abraham & now a flag year for last generation?

    The last thing I heard regarding the cause of the wildfire in Hawaii was that it was electrical in nature. What brought you back to believing in the CLIMATE CHANGE narrative, from GEOENGENEERING?

    Nato has helped to keep this world free for almost 75 years, starting in 1949, and countries still are trying to get into it, as opposed to; are there any trying to get out of Nato?
    The lack of ability to read cursive is no impediment to reading the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, nor CONSTITUTION,/BILL OF RIGHTS. One can purchase a pocket sized copy on Amazon, as I did in July, 2022, for around three dollars.

    It’s about (the) “Science” ONLY WHEN it’s not about prevenient ‘political’ science. Obama’s sun sigil draws directly from the Swastika, which itself literally originated as a “twisted” cross (rotated and reversed by Hitler’s swastika); an ancient Sanskrit symbol of the Sun representing good fortune.

    How bastardized everything politically becomes when political bastards get their hands on everything! An attempt is being made to condition us using rituals, not unlike (or far above) Pavlov and his famous dogs.
