Breaking Down Thrive, Neptune in Aquarius’s Zeitgeist Doppelganger~ Robert Phoenix

“Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

the best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”

That’s Yeats up there, time traveling on the wings of the Golden Dawn. Yeats of course was a member of A.E. Waite’s spiritualist click. His wife a channel. He wrote “A Vision” which is essentially a notebook of his wife’s medium sessions. A work that confounded followers and critics alike. But I digress. The Second Coming is at hand, or so it seems. The laws of Newtonian physics are kicking in. One side pushes and the other pushes back, until the pushing escalates into all out conflict in the streets.
In anarchy and chaos, there is no time. History is erased in the frenzy of the moment. Crisis eliminates the linear perspective. Chaos eviscerates all that has gone before it. It is the splitting of the social and historical atom. We’re rapidly approaching the chaotic flashpoint in the event horizon. We’re being sucked in at neutrino speeds by McKenna’s strange attractor at the end of time. Just wait until Uranus goes direct in December on 12/10/11 on the Gemini full lunar eclipse. But in the frenzied rush to make it right, hit the re-set, start over, invocation ov chaos, etc., you might want to take a few, deep, breaths before you start spinning off into the next dust devil of change. All is not what it appears to be in the land of a thousand trances.
For the next 1500 words or so, I’m the guy that’s going to be peeing in the punch bowl just a little. It’s Mars in Virgo–can’t help it. I’ll be dissecting “Thrive” released on 11/11/11 when Neptune was in Aquarius at 28 degrees. “Thrive” is the new wake-up-call, a truth-buzz produced by James Foster Gamble, scion of the Procter and Gamble fortune. Let me just say that trying to find anything on Foster Gamble, other than “Thrive” related material is nearly impossible. That in and of itself raises my Spock-like brow just little. BTW, isn’t Spock the archetype for Virgo? One of the only things that I could track down on Gamble was a story in the S.F. Gate from 1995, where he supported the rabid one-worlder, Jim Garrison. Garrison was an ideologue that tapped into a donor base of rich kids from elite families. He called them, “donuts” his code for “do nothings.”
In 2007, Peter Joseph Merola, now just “Peter Joseph” released the first edition of “Zeitgeist.” It took place when Neptune was also in Aquarius (21 degrees). Coming on the heels of the wildly successful, “Loose Change,” “Zeitgeist” pioneered the internet as a venue to release film, video, etc. The internet, thanks to “Loose Change” and “Zeigeist” has became a very relevant distribution channel. “Thrive” follows in that vein, not just from a distribution perspective, but also to a large degree, ideologically. And, like “Zeitgeist” which has started its own movement/community, “Thrive” has as well.
When looking at “Zeitgeist” in retrospect, it was very effective at addressing the ills of our time, which are traced back to manipulation of the money supply, lying and deceit by governments, particularly as it related to the myriad mistruths regarding 911. It took on religion in a very big way, particularly Christianity, based on the work of Archarya S. In fact, “Zeitgeist” murders Christ. But it acts as a way shower, in the same symbolic function that John did for Jesus, for “Thrive”.
Now I need to be clear, that there is no clear commercial link between the two films and the two filmmakers, and only John Perkins, who shows up in Zeitgeist 2.0 makes an appearance in “Thrive.”
A common theme that’s emerging in both films, especially caught in the rush of the OWS rapids is the end of money or at the very least, our concept of it. Its coming at us at light speed.
In “Zeitgeist” they spend a great deal of time hyping their own, future based solution; “The Venus Project.” I have to admit I was pretty dazzled by it at first, even if Jacques Fresco’s designs were like a 1970′s future forward wet-dream. It sounded oh so, “utopian” until you read the fine print on the contract. First off, the base line for the Venus Project is that society must adhere to the Earth’s load. Any amount of people above the Earth’s load is not allowable. Two questions then arise; Who determines the Earth’s load? And what happens if there are more people than load space? Is it the same people that are defining climate change that calculate the Earth’s load? Joseph says that there are hard data points and metrics, that we should allow “science” to determine this. Okay, so let’s assume for a moment that we have a council of ahem, 12 people that we trust to arrive at a rational capacity for smooth existence. Then we come to the next piece, which is tricky.

If we’re exceeding the capacity of the load, who goes? Some people are going to have to take dirt naps. And then what? Gotta stay under the load. Population control. Not everyone can procreate. Some of you might actually stand up and applaud this essential detail. But all of a sudden, “The Venus Project” is starting to feel a lot like a soft sell eugenics trip. “Zeitgeist” is unmistakably socialist in this regard. “Thrive” is more than slightly different as it champions the Austrian school of economics founded by Herbert Von Mises, Ron Paul’s spiritual mentor.
But I’m referencing “Zeitgeist” because as I peruse the world-wide-interwebs, I see people linking the two films together on their FB pages, Twitter, etc. “Zeitgeist” + “Thrive” = The rise of a cosmology.
“Thrive” goes deeper in some ways than “Zeitgeist” when it comes to naming names, pointing a finger at the families who have raped, pillaged and plundered the planet, while keeping most of us distracted, ignorant and blind to their fiscal and psychological manipulations. Here, “Thrive” plays the role of Jesus in the market on the sabbath, upending the tables of the merchants and the money lenders. Then it takes God completely out of the picture, telling us that its aliens who are the gods and they’ve been leaving us clues to help us liberate ourselves with free energy. Free energy is the “Venus Project” for “Thrive.” In some ways, free energy is a metaphor for “Christ Consciousness” and the tapping of the grid will liberate humanity and free us from the chains of our economic oppressors, who are denying us this great gift. I don’t actually have a problem with this, but there are two things that really jump out. First, there is never any mention of “God” in “Thrive.” This is the highest form of human potential on the cusp of humanity as gods.
If I were a Christian, at this point in the film, I would be very dubious. The film feels like its promoting fallen angels (aliens) and the power of man vs the power of God. But I’m not a Christian per se and I don’t have many issues with the premise. The second question that arises with free energy is that are we a spiritual match at a collective level to handle the power of free energy? I am not sure. But what I do know, is that free energy is the Christ for “Thrive” if you get my drift. So in this regard, “Zeitgeist” is “John” and “Thrive” is Jesus. Which brings us to the social assemblage point of both films.
My uncle recently read Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol which is basically a paen to Freemasonry, gnosticism and noetic sciences. Upon reading it, my uncle immediately wanted to learn more about noetic sciences. Who is one of the key figures in “Thrive”? Edgar Mitchell of IONS (SION), “The Institute Of Noetic Sciences.” Since the advent of The Da Vinci Code, up through The Lost Symbol, with nearly constant 24 hour programming on “The History Channel” of ancient aliens, Nostradamus, Freemasonry, The Knights Templar, end times, UFO’s, abductions, etc, we’re awash in this emerging cosmology. In essence, the world is being converted into a Reader’s Digest version of a mystery school, with the populace being initiated by various degrees. But are we really getting the “truth”?
There always seems to be a synthetic/syncretic dynamic at play. The synthetic piece is the amalgam of beliefs that pass for truth, kluged together. By exposing the fascia of the conspiracy or truth (not the bones) people feel like they are getting glimpses of what’s behind the veil. The syncretic factor is the knowledge that is outside the bounds of the initiate. In fact, “Thrive” is a classic syncretic exposition. It is not in the evolution/science/atheist camp, nor is it in the conservative Christian, creationist camp. In this regard it is classically syncretic and all three dispositions form a triangulated relationship, which of course form neatly into a pyramid; the classic geometry of the mystery school.
As I’ve mentioned previously, astrologically, “Thrive” was released with Neptune in Aquarius, at the 28th degree. The Sabian Symbol for the 29th/30th degree of Aquarius is especially interesting in the light of “Thrive”;“Deeply Rooted In The Past Of A Very Ancient Culture, A Spiritual Brotherhood In Which Many Individual Minds Are Merged Into The Glowing Light Of A Unanimous Consciousness Is Revealed To One Who Has Emerged Successfully From His Metamorphosis.. “Thrive” is a symbol of this, and I have little doubt that the producers were not aware of it and the 11-11-11 (33) portal. But we have to ask ourselves, always, who thrives from events, movements, media?
Foster Gamble is a direct descendent of the Procter and Gamble fortune. He addresses this somewhat in the film and even breaks down P&G’s connection to the production of RFID chips. He does not however touch on the devastating affects on animals with cruel testing and of course heavy environmental damage from any number of their products. I’m being fair here, because even if he did, what good would it do to spend an inordinate amount of time recounting the sins of the father? And its not like every child from a rich family follows obediently in the exploitative footsteps of their ancestors. But the P&G connection must be noted.
Procter and Gamble is enormous. From Crest to Christina Aguilera Perfumes, they’re a huge, multi-national, with massive production/output. P&G has had plenty of claims against them over the years when it comes to how they use and abuse the environment. One of the more intriguing one’s comes from the Kenya Wildlife Service and gives a fascinating glimpse into where and how materials are procured and ultimately, what they’re used for. This from;
“The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has launched a claim against Procter & Gamble and the biotechnology firm Genecor International for a share of the profits acquired from enzymes extracted in Kenya. During a 1998 research mission by scientists from Genecor and the University of Leicester, research samples from the soda flats of Lake Bogoria, Kenya, were taken without the approval of the KWS. Genecor later found the samples to contain valuable “extremophiles”, so called because of their ability to thrive in extreme conditions. Genecor cloned the highly alkaline enzymes and later sold them to Procter & Gamble, who went on to use them as a key ingredient in Tide Alternative Bleach Detergent and “stonewashing” material. KWS has enlisted the scientific support of the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (Icipe) and legal assistance from the Public Interest Intellectual Property Advisors (PIIPA) in launching the claim under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The CBD affirms the sovereign rights of signatories over the biological resources found on their territories and commits parties to “fair, equitable sharing of the benefits accruing from the utilisation of genetic resources”. The claim could involve millions of dollars and could also put a halt to the illegal extraction of the country’s biological resources.
Extremophiles! I just love it! Thrive and Extremophiles in one press release. Can’t make this stuff up. Anyway . . .

The most intriguing and salacious scandal P&G has been engaged in involves its logo, which Christians decoded to be the devil himself. In fact it was such an issue them, that they changed their logo. a while back, P&G’s president supposedly came onto the Phil Donahue show and declared that he was a member of the Church of Satan. No one has been able to prove this and it is in the dustbin of urban legends, but that didn’t stop Amway. They ran with it and accused P&G of satanic practices. They lost big in a court of law to the tune of $16 mill for spreading the satanic scandal. Right or wrong, after all these years, its a stain that P&G still can’t bleach out of it’s reputation.
Clarence Gamble, part of the Gamble clan was also a noted eugenicist. I’m in no way accusing Foster Gamble as being a closet satanist because he is promoting a film that claims that we are descended from aliens (fallen angels) and not God. I would never do that. I would never accuse the makers of “Thrive” as trafficking in occult symbolism, like having a fetching femme strike an alluring “Eye Of Horus” pose just like P&G’s own Christina Aguilera (Christ Eagle). I would never stoop to such low, journalistic standards. Instead, I think we should have a clear eyed look at the stars of “Thrive” and delve into their backgrounds just a bit. Here we go.
Barbara Marx-Hubbard
One of my faves. Anytime you can have Karl Marx and L. Ron Hubbard in your name, you go straight to the top of the list. Her father was Louis Marx, the world’s most successful toy maker, known as the Henry Ford of toys, he was given the nickname, “The Toycoon.” Marx profited handsomely off the industrialization of post-war Japan, where he manufactured assembly line toys and helped kick-start the march towards globalism. She shares a similar, corporate elite lineage with Foster Gamble. Even a cursory glimpse of Marx-Hubbard, I mean we’re not even talking 2-3 levels deep, we’re just flecking off light layers, reveals some interesting stuff. Here are just a few of her professional connections; “Member and futurist/strategist of Task Force Delta; a United States Army think tank. Hubbard is also a former director of the Federal Union, founded by Fabian Socialist Rhodes Scholar Clarence Streit. supported by Rockefeller Fund.” (Wikipedia). And this little nugget is more low hanging fruit from the same Wikipedia page. This is the selection in full;
“`New Age author, Barbara Marx Hubbard, as she put a fitting conclusion on “The State of the World Forum.” In her book, THE BOOK OF CO-CREATION, she writes: “Out of the full spectrum of the human personality, one-fourth is elected to transcend and one-fourth are destructive, defective seeds. In the past they were permitted to die a natural death. Now, as we approach the quantum shift from the creature-human to the co-creative human – the human who is an inheritor of god-like powers – the destructive one-fourth must be eliminated from the social body. Fortunately, you are not responsible for this act. We are. We are in charge of God’s selection process for planet Earth. He selects – we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death. We come to bring death to those who are unable to know God… The riders of the pale horse are about to pass among you. Grim reapers, they will separate the wheat from the chaff. This is the most painful period in the history of humanity
Okay . . .Do we want to break that down a little? “He selects – we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death.” Really? Who is the we? Sounds like more closet eugenics cloaked as benign spiritual allegory. She is one of the linchpins of Gamble’s film? I could drop down a few levels, but we have a lot of ground to cover.
Amy Goodman
Goodman has long been associated with social justice and progressive reform and is a huge gate keeper as the voice for “Democracy Now.” Goodman got her street cred when she took on ex-president Bill Clinton about Leonard Pelitier, East Timor, Israel/Palestine and NAFTA. Clinton labeled her “extreme” and Goodman (Aries) became a face and a voice for “democracy.” But much like Noam Chomsky, Goodman stands in the way of any serious investigation of 911, even though she did have Dylan Avery of “Loose Change” on her show. Her presence in “Thrive” is an iconic selling point. She is a cipher for the social change contingent. So now we have a matriarch of the new age and a warrior for social justice, both from roughly the same area of New York, moving the “Thrive” agenda forward.

Deepak Chopra
Chopra is becoming the Zelig of consciousness. He’s all over the place now. He used to be solely on the mind/body tip, the sadhu of somatic connections. But he’s expanded his agenda, taken on Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins and now he’s moved onto the “Thrive” scene. Chopra made a lot of cash during fat times, selling people the “The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success.” Now he’s hopped on the hope and doom express. Chopra is the mind/body health figurehead for “Thrive.” I find it interesting that Chopra has been named a senior member of the “Gallup Organization” which is dedicated to shaping, I mean sharing the public’s opinions. Chopra and his son, Gotham, founded “Virgin Comics” in a partnership with Richard Branson to promote the Kabbalah. Chopra is the son of a prominent Indian physician. So put him down as yet another agent of elite origins. “Thrive” is starting to look like a country club.
David Icke
Icke burst onto the scene with a vengeance, a reptile hunter, blowing the cover of the royal families and bloodlines. A former soccer player and sports presenter for English T.V., Icke has been on a crusade against the fork tongued dracs. A lot of people knock him for this and that it detracts from the actual information that Icke has. I don’t. I personally think the reptilian theme/meme is apropos for the times, since it seems that only cold-blooded types could traffic in the marketplace of human misery and suffering. Real or not, reptilian consciousness is a fit. Icke has been accused of lifting others research. His latest detractors claim that he’s gone from blowing the whistle to shining turds, promoting a feel good new agey philosophy. I’m not sure that Icke had much a of choice. You can only bang the bogeyman drum for so long. But he’s here to anchor the crytpo-new age conspiracy types..
So let’s do a quick roll call.
Barbara Marx-Hubbard: New age ascension contingent.
Amy Goodman: Left gate-keeper contingent.
Deepak Chopra: Mind/Body magical medicine new age contingent.
David Icke: Proto-new age conspiracy contingent.
That’s a lot of demographics in one film. You’ve got Stephen Greer (alien contingent), Edgar Mitchell (noetic contingent), Brian O’Leary (free energy contingent), G. Edward Griffin (Libertarian/Ron Paul contingent) and on it goes. It’s a smart marketing move on Gamble’s part, but frankly, you are known by the company you keep, and “Thrive” has some dubious friends. Watch it for free if you can. There’s some good info in there. While “Zeitgeist” is decidedly more socialist, “Thrive” occupies a libertarian patch of ideological real estate. But don’t mortgage your future without really scrutinizing the cast of characters and ultimately, who this film benefits.
So what is “Thrive” ultimately? Is it an Aquarian fluffer, getting us all turned on and primed for alien or fake alien contact? Is it a bracing splash of hidden history 101 for the masses to awaken from their sleep? Or is it a dramatic salvo lobbed into the public arena by the “Law of One” in their ancient battle with “The Sons Of Belial” over the direction and ownership of humanities soul? In any event, the time for a film like “Thrive” is now. People are hungry–they’re craving the truth. But is “Thrive” some slightly altered, genetically modified, low-hanging fruit of media that changes your perception of the truth, even though it tastes like the real thing?
One final bit really jumps out at me; If Gamble wants to have this film make a deep impact, why are they so proprietary with it when people upload it to youtube? Why didn’t they just give it away? I guess that’s for Zeitgeist, they’re the socialists. If you want to see “Thrive” and thrive, you’ll have to pay the man.

One of your best yet R.
Peace for anyone who can awaken in this scenario.
