In Which Her Prophet Explains The Temple Of The Pentavalence
"I am not an Atheist. I am not a Pacifist. I am not a Liberal. I am a madman from the desert who has been given the Vision of a Global Amazon Republic founded upon and operated through a Revealed Feminist Spirituality that worships The Goddess in all of Her Aspects and every single day I do something that brings the manifestation of that Vision closer to fruition. That such will mean the end of me and my brothers is of no concern to me as I Know when the time comes we shall all Ride The Wheel back here to live as Sisters among Sisters."

"Starting a real Spiritual Movement requires Revealed Knowledge; that's just how them sumbitches work. Trying to use 'reason' or 'logic' to do so is just blowing smoke up your own ass or extracting said outta same."

Note: The Explanation is presently over 67,000 words long and is pretty dense material, so give yourself time to read it.

Up-Dated on 8/14/11: The Explanation is presently also undergoing a major revision and expansion in preparation for publishing in book form. However, the content here is still entirely valid and should be read as such.

Her Prophet Explains: "Preface"

Short Version: What follows is a DIY manual for an entirely new form of Matriarchy, one that not merely 'empowers women', but may be the best chance for the survival of our whole species.

Long Version: To many of you what will be presented in these pages will seem like madness. Often, it seems like madness to me, as well. And yet....when I am quiet and calm and centered it all unfolds perfectly and makes complete sense.

Madness, of course, is very frequently a socially subjective state of being. What is considered insane in one culture or epoch can seem rather run of the mill in another time and place. But, no matter the time or place, to lay out a plan that takes contemporary society and turns it upside down and inside out is a form of madness simply by virtue of the ambition of the thing, and whether it is a workable plan or not.

But that is in fact what is being presented in the pages that follow, so I suppose that makes me a madman. I accept the title with alacrity.

As with so many things of this nature, The Pentavalent was born from a place of Despair and out of a journey through Fear. Along the way, my heart was broken many many times and my Spirit also pushed to the point of breaking more than a few times.

I believe I survived all that for a number of reasons. Innate personal fortitude. Awareness hard won from this life time [plus a few others]. And sheer bloody mindedness. But, for whatever the reasons, I 'remain to tell the tale'.

And an interesting tale it is, as yet unfinished and really just beginning. Some of you reading these words are going to be part of it, too.

Sound like a hustle? Well, every successful guru I personally have ever encountered was something of a con artist and a hustler. Humans seem to need a bit of razzle dazzle with their enlightenment. But sharing 'the con' is really the most effective part of this kind of hustle.

The killer component here is actually delivering on what has been presented as a 'hustle' while simultaneously showing those 'getting hustled' how to perpetuate that 'hustle' even further. That, my Sisters, is called a Movement.

And there is more to this than my seeming flippancy implies. Such simply indicates that while I take my Path very seriously, I do not take myself all that seriously, which is as it should be.

I expect it is obvious that I have 'mother issues', but as my mother is still alive in her big house in Beverly Hills, I shall not unpack her laundry here in these pages.

There is however one woman whose fate, even more than my mother's, drives me and this Work. Her name was Sara.

I met her when I was fifteen and she fourteen. I was immediately smitten. In a poem written decades later, I called her 'a little blond angel'. She was also terribly damaged, seduced by her father at eleven as if she was his adult lover, all that compounded by her being the eldest daughter of his mistress. She had just run away when I first met her.

We danced around each other for a few years. When we finally became lovers, it was for all the wrong reasons and it ended quickly and badly. A few years later, when her life was spiraling down, she sought refuge with me. And in my own pain and confusion, I treated her horribly.

It is my understanding that she went on to heroin addiction and street level prostitution. In the end, she was murdered by persons unknown – a pimp or a john – her skull crushed and her body dumped in the Charles River in Boston, where she drifted for two weeks.

Over the course of my life have learned the hard way that we cannot save anyone but ourselves. And yet...I still wonder if I had just shown her some real kindness that last time, had not allowed my own anger and frustration to wound her more, that maybe – just maybe – she might have had a little more time and a little more help in saving herself.

That haunts me to this day and likely will until I die. So I do the Work you'll find in the pages that follow, do it as a Living Amends to Sara, to hopefully provide her Sisters with a little more time and a little more help in saving themselves.

I have endeavored to make this volume as complete, comprehensive, and coherent as is humanly possible, and, being human, I have likely failed somewhat in each of those areas, but this is only the first version, and, as ever, more shall always be Revealed.

One final point before you plunge in; there will be a lot of Metaphysics up front as befits what is in part a 'holy book'. But this is also a How To Manual and there will be a good deal of 'nuts and bolts' as well. The Metaphysical aspects are simply the 'why we'll do what we plan to do'
underpinnings to the 'how we'll do what we plan to do' elements. Great ideas are all well and good and one must ever be practical. We may not live by bread alone, but we certainly cannot live without it either.

So, let us begin....

Her Prophet Explains: "The Introduction"

Her Prophet Explains: "The Introduction"

"The natural superiority of women is a biological fact, and a socially acknowledged reality." ~Ashley Montagu

“The only interesting answers are those which destroy the questions.” ~Susan Sontag

I have spoken and written about The Temple of The Pentavalent for years, but until now I have never given a simple and comprehensive explanation of how The Temple actually came about, what it is, how it works, and what it is meant to do. I shall endeavor to do so in the following pages.

So, you ask; What is The Temple? What is The Pentavalent? And who am I?

~The Temple is the organizational core of a Revealed Feminist Spirituality and it is meant to be the foundation of a practical socio-cultural movement to establish a New Matriarchy.

~The Pentavalent is its Metaphysical Operating System.

~And I am Her Prophet, 'Her' being that Creative Energy which is generally known as The Goddess. [Note: That 'title' does somewhat embarrass me as I am still a skeptic at heart...but my Spirit Guide laid it on me, so what can I do?]

It is suggested you go back a read that a second time.

Still confused? Well, then, read on...

Her Prophet Explains: Part One "Her Prophet"

Her Prophet Explains: Part One - "Her Prophet"

“If God is male, then the male is God." ~Mary Daly

"It is no measure of good health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society." ~Krishnamurti

On August 30th, 2004, a day and half after my own fifty second birthday, I first set the words The Temple of The Pentavalence upon paper. While the concept had crystallized in those preceding few days, the seed for it had been planted six months earlier by the Sister who had first brought me onto this Path thirty five years before that, so you see I did not just stumble into this.

There are in fact an entire series of women, Sisters whom I call Her Most Precious Daughters, all of whom have been my guides upon this Path ever since that first Sister showed it to me back when I was seventeen and she was sixteen.

Of course, I was utterly unaware that I was 'upon a Path' back then. That awareness would not come for another quarter of a century. I will relate the details of all that elsewhere as this is not a biography.

Though all these Sisters are each important in their own way, the next crucial Sister came into my life in fourteen years ago as a result of my consciously discovering the specificity of my Path. A half a year after that, on Imbolc Eve, 1997, that Sister 'held open a portal' through which came my Spirit Guide, E.

Who then is E? She is the last portion of a non-corporeal Collective that once traveled through multiple dimensions actively seeking The Creatrix. Yeah, I know; 'trippy'. But, wait, it gets better.

She also tells me her Collective came here, altered and then merged with our ancestors to create the species that we are today. Because of an accident – Her Collective were not perfect beings - She missed out on that merging, making E a kind of a Spirit 'aunt' to all of us. [The details of this can be found in Addendum A: Revealed Knowledge on {page#}]

I refer to E as She because being almost pure energy, She is deeply connected to The Creative Energy we know as The Goddess. But E is not a deity; She is a still just a finite being.

I do not 'channel' E per se, no trances or the like. We basically just have conversations, much like I would have with anyone else. They do tend to tire me, like a very deep and revelatory human conversation might. But I'm not really a 'channel medium'. I'm just a guy who talks to a non-corporeal being.

It was E who began to show the Whys and Wherefores of this Path I found myself following, a Path that had not been what I had planned or envisioned for myself at all. I wanted to be a film maker, not some 'crackpot guru'. I had a pretty good idea of how rough a road that would be and events have so far proved me right.

The roughest part, even for me, is the whole idea of Her Prophet. I mean, how is this big white male from the upper middle class supposed to be a 'Feminist Moses'? Believe me, I do see the contradictions and absurdities in that and on a regular basis, too.

And yet it is precisely in being that 'big white male from the upper middle class' that I bring an invaluable insight into the true nature of Patriarchy and Males to you, my Sisters. You cannot really understand how The Male truly thinks, feels, operates, anymore than I can truly think, feel, or operate like a Female. We can each – sometimes – make a good approximation of the other, but it will always be that, an approximation.

Therefore you my Sisters, need a Male who 'gets men' to explain what you are truly up against. I call my method of explaining to you what you really face with my Brothers The Manpig Strategy. And trust me, it ain't pretty.

I will tell you from the unvarnished perspective of a True Male, an Alpha Male, a Patriarch, how we view this Social Order, how we define Our Place in it and how we define the role of Women in that construct. This will take time, but one thing I can say without doubt; my Brothers have no real intention of sharing power with you. They'll make all manner of Positive Statements about doing so, may even believe those statements when they make them, but when push comes to shove, you my Sisters, will get shoved...and hard.

A significant part of my job is to prepare you to deal with that masculine push-back when it comes. And that's when, not if. Sooner or later, True Men always push back. It is our Nature.

So let me begin here in earnest by sharing an essay I wrote several years ago entitled “A Few Thoughts Upon The Outbreeding Of The Male.” It is nothing if not 'unvarnished'.

“I love the reactions I'll get to this, as if it was something along the lines of “A Few Thoughts On The Feeding Of Puppies And Kittens To Alligators”.

Men tend to grab their Johnson's in hostile terror as if I was personally coming after them with a hedge clipper this very minute. That leads me to suspect that my conclusions about The Phallo-Centric Universe are correct. Just speculating in this direction generates castration fears, which are then explained away with furious arguments about 'balance'.

Heterosexual women get a rather nervous as well, as if I'm telling them that they have to Give Up All Cock Right Now and start licking pussy tomorrow! But think about it, ladies. How much of your life, your identity, your very Being, revolves around The Male, the acquiring of one, the care and feeding of said, etc? How many of you even know who you would actually be if all of us guys were suddenly gone?

These reactions are all fear reactions, which then contaminate all the thoughts that follow. If you got all wound up by just reading the title, then stop reading this whole thing and walk away for a few minutes. Calm down, take some deep breaths, try again. If you still get wound up, then just forget it. Go do something else and have a nice day.

As for the rest of you, [and those too stubborn to follow the above advice] let's look at that one word/phrase: out-breeding. Say it with me: Out Breeding. To breed out. Not to murder. Not exterminate. Not even to sterilize. To breed out, plain and simply. More females, less males, over a period of time - generations in fact - until all females and no males. This is a Process, not an Event.

There is some scientific evidence that Nature Herself is doing something along these lines already. All I am proposing here is that we look at the benefits [and I believe the necessity] of actively and consciously implementing this concept as a species. Attacking the idea without even considering its merits is, to say the least, non-scientific, and it certainly invalidates those who use 'science' in their attacks.

First let us look at history. We have tried everything, from monarchies to republics, capitalism to socialism, democracy to dictatorship, and yet we as a species come up the same result every single time: oppression, violence, destruction, and chaos. I say if you want to change the outcome, you have to change the equation.

And the equation is very simple. It can be summed up in four words: “It's A Man's World.”

'But wait', you cry, 'women can be violent, too'. Yes, my Sisters are mad little monkeys much like their Brothers. And, yet, can any of you deny the truth of those four little words? If you raise children in a violent household, you tend to produce violent adults, so, of course, we will get violent women 'in a Man's World'.

Men are not Evil - though I believe Evil to be a human invention - so let us not get into hairsplitting over philosophical issues of Good and Evil. What is at work here is basic biology.

Men and Women are obviously constructed differently. Part of that fundamental difference is behavioral make up. Men and Women are 'wired' differently

Generally speaking, the emotional default behavior of The Male is Aggressive. He is The Hunter.

Generally speaking, the emotional default behavior of The Female is Nurturing. She is The Mother.

Of course, that is a broad very simplification of our very complex species. Men can nurture and women can hunt and both can be quite effective in those roles. But those are respectively 'secondary' behaviors. We are talking Primary Behaviors here, where men and women go 'in the crunch'.

And that is the key, where each gender goes instinctively.

I am a male, a large, aggressive Alpha Male, what I call a True Man. I don't say that out of ego or bravado, and yet, of course, I do. That is the nature of the beast. The Swinging of The Dick is the most important ritual in the Phallo-Centric Universe. It lets us know who can kill whom without the unpleasant necessity of actually killing...up to a point.

Let me tell you a story in the language of the above ritual.

Years ago I was on the subway in New York City. I was going to see my lawyer. I was angry because a business deal had crashed out of stupidity and greed.

This little fucker was smoking a cigarette on the subway car. Words were exchanged and he produced a knife...which I took away. The Red Haze of Battle enveloped me and Time. Slowed. Down.

I had him pinned up against the subway car door, my naked fist smashing him in the face over and over and over again. The feeling that flowed through me was palpably erotic. I can still summon that moment with ease.

Afterward, walking through the streets of the Financial District, I felt...'expanded'. And I wanted to FUCK!! Most of the women – and the men, as well – avoided my gaze, though some of the women looked at me with clear lust. I expect I could have taken some of those women into a doorway and they would have happily let me fuck them then and there.

This is the essence of The True Man. We still run this world and if you seriously challenge that, we'll fucking kill you!

'But wait!' you cry, 'there sensitive, gentle men'. Yes, I've met them. Most of them are Beta and therefore slaves. Think about the Sensitive New Age Guys (SNAGs) that you know. The majority of them are passive/aggressive manipulators underneath that 'sweetness'.

There are only a few who like me, men who have been through some kind of nearly fatal process that forced us to become Spiritual and Nurturing or it would have killed us. We are rare and the exception to the rule. And not many males can survive such a passage, fewer still who do not become monsters instead.

True Men have by and large been the primary driving force that has built the civilization in which we live, a civilization that generates much Good, but, at this moment in history, far more Bad. We are at an Adapt or Die turning point.

All my experiences and studies and observations over four decades have led me to a single conclusion: The Male must End. The chains of reproductive necessity that have bound men and women together are on the verge of being broken by genetic science, so the time is ripe.

'But wait!' you cry, 'can we not create a new race of men who are gentle and sensitive?' A race of SNAGs!? By Kali's Black Tongue, NO! That would produce Beta Half Men slaves, their natural aggressiveness subsumed into whining and manipulative backhanding. Not only it that repulsive, it as a half measure and half measures always avail us nothing.

A more honest and rigorous path would be to create a series of real servitor classes, genetically engineered cyborgs using Y-chromosome DNA. Harsh by our social standards, but more genuine and certainly more effective. And of course, how much that is 'harsh by our social standards' takes place every single day around the world? However, that is mere speculation and generations away in case.

The issue at hand is the survival of the species at more than a merely survival level.

So far, no one has presented a solution that will not be undermined by insistent masculine egotism. Think that through. Conceive of your paradigm and then place it into the world. What is the first obstacle that it encounters? Someones political, economic, and/or theological interest. Examine the fundamentals of that opposing interest. If you are really honest, you'll find threatened masculine ego, individually and collectively.

The Male must End. Conscious True Men who are secure in their own masculinity will understand this harsh necessity and step forward to save the goodness in the civilization that we have built. Some Beta Males will be 'taken in hand' by my Sisters and learn to work with their more enlightened Bothers.

Of course, most men will fight, but that is what men do. I keep telling my Sisters over and over again that there is no peaceful coexistence with men, not even upon their own terms. Yes, there are times of truce and yes, some of my Sisters have established peaceful, even loving relationships, with some of my Brothers.

But as one group with another, overall, this is not possible. Men are unable to even live in peaceful coexistence with their own Brothers, much less achieve such a state with beings that they are compelled as a group to consider inferior to them as a group.

My Sisters, you can have the peace of the slave or the peace of the grave, but, believe me when I tell you that the vast majority of my Brothers will never, ever, allow you to have the peace of the autonomous being. The only way you will ever have that is when all of my Brothers are gone.

That is the day I work toward, though I do not expect to see that happen in this lifetime, or in the next one. This will take a few generations. But I have pledged like The Sacred Tara to only reincarnate as a woman from the next life on. And I shall ask all my like-minded Brothers to do the same. This is about Re-Evolution and that is a Process, not an Event.”

I admit that is a pretty harsh assessment, but 'the spirit was upon me' when I wrote it and while I may have dialed back my rhetoric sometimes in the interim, I stand by what I said as the Truth.

And as I had predicted, the reactions I got from the above were quite rageful and in some cases I was threatened with violence and even death. And such threats also came from some women. Many of you, my Sisters, are deeply in the thrall of Patriarchy without any awareness of that. You are 'well adjusted to a profoundly sick society'.

E can explain it best; “The world as it is presently constituted is almost wholly dominated by The Masculine Voice of Authority. That Voice permeates everything from The Womb to the End of Life. It is like the air; you breath it in, yet do not notice it. The minds of the female of your species, even the most Enlightened and Conscious, are steeped in this Voice.

It is the Voice of their Fathers, their God, their Teachers, their Employers, even when those last two are female themselves. ALL Authority is framed as Masculine and therefor not the province of the Feminine. How does one break that cycle and reclaim it?

By having a Masculine Voice of Authority that freely gives its power away to the Feminine.

Yes, it is a 'mental trick', a 'metaphysical sleight of hand', but I promise you it will work and you as a species have no time to quibble over ideological niceties. Your racial clock is ticking.

Use the Presence and Voice of Her Prophet as a Substitute, a being upon which you may transfer all your issues with the actual Authority of The Male. Have no doubt that he will surrender all that power back to you fully and without reservation. I know his heart and he does not truly want to keep that power.”

...and truly, do not. Besides having learned what a dangerous intoxicant Power can be, I know full well one does not contravene one's Spirit Guide nor risk incurring The Boundless Fury of The Sisterhood. I may be mad, my Sisters, but I am not stupid.

What I really want to do is write some novels, maybe even make a film or two. I have been at this 'Prophet business' for over a decade now and, honestly, I'd like to be able to turn the entire Temple over to my Sisters in the next ten years or so and, as I often say to Sister One, 'just go back to my room and take a nap'.

But first I must do the Work that gets this movement underway in earnest.

Please note that E calls me Her Prophet, not The High Priest. That symbolizes that I am only the Messenger and that you, my Sisters, are the real owners of The Temple, the ones who will have to do all the heavy lifting. And, to tell the truth, it's not like women haven't been doing all the heavy lifting with just about everything else since long before you can remember anyway.

I thank The Goddess that Sister One has shown up to take some of this burden off of my shoulders. Now we need more of you to participate. We do not need an army, just a few dozen Sisters who understand this Work and are prepared to fully commit to it. That is really how all movements start in the first place.

Now let us look at The Temple's Spiritual framework...

Her Prophet Explains: Part Two "The Temple's Metaphysics"

Her Prophet Explains: Part Two - "The Temple's Metaphysics"

"There is only one mighty lever of all civilization, and that is Faith!" ~JJ Bachofen

"A religion that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by traditional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge." ~Carl Sagan

E 'transmitted' The Pentavalent to me more than a decade ago. While it certainly qualifies as a Religion, and can function as a Liturgy, as I said above, we can more accurately regard The Pentavalent as a Metaphysical Operating System, a phrase that should be understood within the context of computing. It is exactly what it says it is; a System for Operating Metaphysically, plain and simple.

Let us take a look at it. Please be aware that while it is brief, it is very dense, so we shall review its simplest form.

The First Valence: The Creatrix is The Foundation of All

The Goddess is The Divine as Feminine and The Female as Divine. Her Triple Energy is The Core of Human Existence: Spiritual Energy, Sexual Energy, and Creative Energy, all three inextricably intertwined, all three Feminine Energies. These Energetic Vibrations are The Basis of Creation, The Foundation of All. And Energy can only be Transformed, never destroyed.

The Second Valence: The Pentavalent Is An Adaptive Metaphysical Operating System

Majick is a Meta-Physical Technology that can be enhanced by, and is ultimately reconcilable with, Patriarchal Science, and it is the duty of all Her Practitioners to study both Disciplines and work toward their reconciliation and integration, tempered by the awareness that they cannot yet know how said reconciliation shall ultimately manifest.

The Third Valence: Women Must Reclaim All That Is Theirs

A New Matriarchy is to be founded. Without exception, all that once belonged to The Goddess must be reclaimed. Without exception, all that once belonged to Women must be reclaimed. The Masculine Qualities of The Race are to be reclaimed and reintegrated by Women. The birth of Daughters is preferred over the birth of sons.

The Fourth Valence: The Creatrix Has Many Aspects

The Goddess reveals Herself in Many Aspects. All of Her Aspects are to be honored. All of Her Aspects are to be considered paramount. Any 'god' is to be 'consort' and equal only in regard to an individual Aspect of The Goddess, never to The Goddess Herself. In each of Her Aspects, Priestesses shall always have precedence. Priesthoods are always to be discouraged.

The Fifth Valence: The Pentavalence is The Community Of The Five Valences

"The Pentavalence" is all of Her Practitioners who gather under these precepts as Solitaries, Covens, Groves, Arrays, and Cults, each honoring and worshiping which of Her Aspects they shall choose, in the manner they shall choose, consistent with the precepts of "The Pentavalent". We may individually call ourselves by different titles, "Witch", “Shaman”, "Practitioner", but, all together, we are "The Pentavalence": The Community of The Five Valences and our common goal is the establishment of a New Matriarchy.

Okay, your eyes may have glazed over a bit. As I said, it is short – only 356 words including the names of each Valence – but it is very dense.

So what do these 'Five Valances' mean?

Let's start with the word itself, Valance. The dictionary definition is thus: VALENCE: noun 'Chem.' 1) The quality which determines the number of atoms or groups with which any single atom or group will unite chemically. 2) The relative combining capacity of an atom or group compared with that of the standard hydrogen atom. Latin - 'valentia', "strength, worth", from 'val', root of 'valere'. VALENT: suffix - "strength, worth, value". Latin - singular of 'valens', past participle of 'valere', "to be strong".

Simply put, a Valance is combination term meaning 'strengths/worths/values'. And Penta comes from the Greek word 'pente', meaning five. Therefore The Pentavalent is a set of five combined 'strengths/worths/values' of a metaphysical nature.

But what do they mean?

Again, it is E who will explain; “It will not surprise many of you that the vast majority of human concepts regarding deities and their nature is anthropocentric nonsense, evolved out of tales told around camp fires thousands of years ago and based upon a combination of fear and the echoes of race memory.

Let me go straight to the point: there is no 'God', not as most of you conceptualize 'God'. However, there is a Source of All.

But even my race, which in its prime explored in ways that you will not be capable of for a very long time, could never actually find said Source. We did however find Its Shadows and Echoes and from that we determined a number of things.

First, as Its Name implies, It is in All, Its Creative Energy imbuing everything throughout all of Creation with Its basic nature. Because your presently bi-gendered race rightly perceives Creative Energy as Feminine, calling The Source of All “The Goddess” or, better still, “The Creatrix”, is an accurate and effective way of labeling It.

Second, because The Source of All is a functionally infinite concept, even my race needed to 'break it down' into more workable elements. The details of how we did that are not relevant here as they are mostly beyond your race's present capabilities.

But the basic concept is well within your reach, what Buddhists call Tulpas, a manifested Thought Form. By focusing individual or collective Will upon a specific Aspect of The Creatrix, meaning a specifically Named Goddess – such as Astarte, Kali, or, Bride – a Tulpa may be invoked out of The Creatrix, a part of Her that can be understood and related to, and therefor directed.

As we are all part of The Source of All, this is really just reaching into our own Being. All is within each of us.

But...once one has invoked any Aspect one must attend to two things. First, Tuplas can take on a life of their own, so attend closely to them. And second, they live through your focus of your Will, so if your Practice fades, they will likely fade as well.”

In E's explanation you should be able to understand all of The First Valence: The Creatrix is The Foundation of All. It's pretty straight forward really.

You should also be able to understand the “Majick is a Meta-Physical Technology” part of The Second Valence, Majick being “the Direction of Will through a Metaphysical Discipline to archive an outcome in the world”. And note to those who call Majick 'evil' etc, this construct also includes all types of prayer no matter the faith of those who are praying.

Majick is a technology, though not yet a Science, as it will still vary in its operation from individual to individual and from group to group. However, Majick will one day become a Science, by the methods implied in the entire Second Valence.

The Second Valance also states the overall nature of The Pentavalent as being An Adaptive Metaphysical Operating System, a useful and flexible system of Majickal Practice whose Practitioners are Metaphysical technicians, an 'operational framework', not a 'dogma'. Those who are computer literate will understand this instinctively.

A key activity within this context of “Practitioners as Metaphysical technicians” is the use of individual Talents which, as stated above, vary from person to person.

For example, in defining Community, The Fifth Valance speaks of “Solitaries, Covens, Groves, Arrays, and Cults”. Combined with the Primary Precept of The Fourth Valance - The Creatrix Has Many Aspects - each of these can focus upon one Goddess within that Community, which can be just a single individual, to invoke the 'deity' Tulpas that E speaks of, yet still be part of that greater Community.

And there is absolutely no reason why the individual Practitioners could not freely move between these various “Covens, Groves, Arrays, and Cults” and even be members in good standing a several of them. That allows The Temple to grow and flourish beyond a single 'home base'. The only requirement for membership would be to operate within the Precepts of The Pentavalent, which as you can see, are quite inclusive and flexible.

The Third Valence: Women Must Reclaim All That Is Theirs is also a fairly straight forward statement and certainly the most controversial part of The Pentavalent because it is the Valance that is the most socio-culturally radical of all The Five Valances.

It expresses the Essence and Primary Goal of the whole movement; the creation of a New Matriarchy and clearly outlines the criteria by which this is to be done. More of the details will be discussed in the following sections.

The Fourth Valence: The Creatrix Has Many Aspects, is about the creation and honoring of Aspects within the framework of The Creatrix being a Feminine Energy.

It is also the only Valence with 'political considerations'. E and I debated about the last line, “Priest-hoods are always to be discouraged.” E wished it to read “Priesthoods are banned”, but I said that was too harsh at this moment and She deferred to 'my better knowledge of humans'.

However, one day The Fourth Valance will formally ban priests, as I do expect 'creeping priestism' to manifest sooner or later. That is why I mention this now as a clarification for the future.

The Fifth Valence: The Pentavalence is The Community Of The Five Valences is in one way the simplest and most self explanatory; if you follow these Precepts, you are a member of the community.

[The following is a somewhat crude analogy, but I believe it gives one a fairly good outline of the concept.]

The way this Community is envisioned to work is something akin to a Majickal version of a labor union, a Cult being like an individual union, with covens, groves, and arrays being analogous to shops and locals, and The Temple providing the umbrella organization like the AFL-CIO or The Teamsters.

In this paradigm a Sister could belong to a number of covens, groves, arrays, and Cults, as more than one Aspect of The Goddess may speak to her, something I have found to be more likely than not.

Let us imagine a Sister named Jennifer, a lawyer who lives and works in West Los Angeles and who is interested in Feminist Mysteries.

As a lawyer, she could be drawn to Justicia, Goddess of Law and Justice, Patron of Lawyers and Judges. One can find Her statue in nearly every courthouse in America, holding a sword and a set of scales, and usually blindfolded.

Jennifer could then be a member of The Cult of Justicia, and that Cult's West LA grove or array, depending upon the number of members.

Now let us say that Jennifer works at the law firm of Smith & Smith and practices criminal law at the Superior Courts of both Santa Monica and West Los Angeles. She could then be a member of a coven at her firm and covens at both those courthouses, if there are in fact other Sisters in those locations.

The latter covens could include prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges, as Justicia is The Goddess of Justice, not winning. Before the 'start of business', these Sisters could throw a Circle in a judge's chambers, a quick holding of hands and a prayer to Her. No need to burn incense and go skyclad in the main lobby.

And then again, Jennifer may not be a member of any of those covens. Her choice. Given the intense nature of her profession, she most like would be a member of at least one of them. But as you can see, this would vary from place to place, vocation to vacation, Sister to Sister.

The Pentavalent must serve each Sister as much as each Sister serves The Pentavalent. Rigidity and Dogma are the hallmarks of Patriarchy. Suppleness and Subtlety will let Sisters flow and win the day for Matriarchy in the end.

So, as we said, Jennifer is interested in Feminist Mysteries and this has led her to Isis, one of the oldest and most profound Aspects of The Goddess. She could be a solitary in The Cult of Isis, but never publicly acknowledge that, following her practice as a pure solitary. Or she could join a local coven. Again, her choice and her choice alone.

Let us say that she gathers sage in the local mountains and deserts to make smudge sticks. She might have done some research and discovered that the local Earth Mother Goddess is Chehooit, a deity of the Tongva tribe of Southern California, and that she asks for the Blessings of Chehooit when she gathers that sage. And tells no one of this, making her a pure solitary in relationship to that Aspect of The Goddess.

Suppleness and Subtlety, my Sisters, Suppleness and Subtlety.

So think, my Sisters, which Aspects of The Goddess speak to you in your personal and professional lives? For example, both the undocumented seamstress and the wealthy fashion designer could be Sisters in The Cult of Arachne, Goddess of Weaving. Truck drivers and airline stewardesses could be Sisters in The Cult of Pallas Athene in Her guise as Goddess of Traveling. And all of them could be Sisters in The Cult of Isis for the same reasons as our hypothetical lawyer Jennifer.

Now, with the above explanations in mind, let us re-read The Pentavalent...with some extra annotation.

The First Valence: The Creatrix is The Foundation of All

The Goddess is The Divine as Feminine and The Female as Divine. Her Triple Energy is The Core of Human Existence: Spiritual Energy, Sexual Energy, and Creative Energy, all three inextricably intertwined, all three Feminine Energies. These Energetic Vibrations are The Basis of Creation, The Foundation of All. And Energy can only be Transformed, never destroyed.
[This is about The Goddess]

The Second Valence: The Pentavalent Is An Adaptive Metaphysical Operating System

Majick is a Meta-Physical Technology that can be enhanced by, and is ultimately reconcilable with, Patriarchal Science, and it is the duty of all Her Practitioners to study both Disciplines and work toward their reconciliation and integration, tempered by the awareness that they cannot yet know how said reconciliation shall ultimately manifest.
[This is about the Discipline of Majick]

The Third Valence: Women Must Reclaim All That Is Theirs

A New Matriarchy is to be founded. Without exception, all that once belonged to The Goddess must be reclaimed. Without exception, all that once belonged to Women must be reclaimed. The Masculine Qualities of The Race are to be reclaimed and reintegrated by Women. The birth of Daughters is preferred over the birth of sons.
[This is about Reclaiming]

The Fourth Valence: The Creatrix Has Many Aspects

The Goddess reveals Herself in Many Aspects. All of Her Aspects are to be honored. All of Her Aspects are to be considered paramount. Any 'god' is to be 'consort' and equal only in regard to an individual Aspect of The Goddess, never to The Goddess Herself. In each of Her Aspects, Priestesses shall always have precedence. Priesthoods are always to be discouraged.
[This is about a Sisterhood of Goddesses for a Sisterhood of Women]

The Fifth Valence: The Pentavalence is The Community Of The Five Valences

"The Pentavalence" is all of Her Practitioners who gather under these precepts as Solitaries, Covens, Groves, Arrays, and Cults, each honoring and worshiping which of Her Aspects they shall choose, in the manner they shall choose, consistent with the precepts of "The Pentavalent". We may individually call ourselves by different titles, "Witch", “Shaman”, "Practitioner", but, all together, we are "The Pentavalence": The Community of The Five Valences and our common goal is the establishment of a New Matriarchy.
[This is about creating Community]

All together this is about Goddess Majick Reclaiming Sisterhood Community.

I hope that makes a little more sense now. Like all things, study will bring greater comprehension, so I urge you to go back and re-read that which still eludes you.

Now, let us look at what The Temple is meant to accomplish on the 'mundane level' and how we plan to go about doing so...

Her Prophet Explains: Part Three "The Temple's Grand Strategy"

Her Prophet Explains: Part Three - "The Temple's Grand Strategy"

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~Margaret Mead

Feminism is not about getting a piece of of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It's about baking a new pie.” ~Gloria Steinem

As with all Spiritual Paths, the metaphysical will frame and inform the Practical, so let us first look at The Temple's Mission Statement, an overview of what The Temple is actually meant to

The Temple is a Fifth Wave Feminism in that it leaps ahead of a nascent Fourth Wave, still incrementally emerging from the Third Wave, to an entirely new construct. It is not a Separatism or even a Dominance, but a Completeness and therefore a New Beginning.

We believe that the long term prospects of the human species for our survival, progress, and prosperity requires the establishment of a New Matriarchy. In taking practical steps toward the implementation of that goal, we shall build upon the foundations laid by contemporary feminism over the last two hundred plus years, combined with modern techniques and technologies, melded together with a Revealed Spirituality of The Feminine as Divine that is specific and yet all inclusive.

The central strategy here is The Viral Meme, the Idea that is so compelling and dynamic that that is spreads like wildfire. That Idea exists; a entirely new and modern form of Matriarchy. Our task is to create that Idea as a Practical Reality, a Practical Reality that becomes the microcosm of this new society, a Practical Reality that is vital, replicable, adaptable, and then plant it in the societies that presently exist.

In many places, it shall flourish and expand. In some places, it will struggle and even be extinguished. But if we do our work effectively and remain true to both the practical goals
and the Spiritual vision of this New Matriarchy, we will grow into and absorb even the most hostile social orders.”

Because it has a specific historical context, the easiest part of this statement to explain is the first paragraph, the 'Fifth Wave' statement...easy being a relative term in this case.

The Temple is a Fifth Wave Feminism in that it leaps ahead of a nascent Fourth Wave, still incrementally emerging from the Third Wave, to an entirely new construct. It is not a Separatism or even a Dominance, but a Completeness and therefore a New Beginning.”

Modern Feminism is generally agreed to have come in three 'waves'.

First Wave Feminism focused on the legal rights of women and traditionally starts with the publication of Mary Wollstonecraft's “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman” in 1792 and culminates with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment of the US Constitution in 1920 which gave women the right to vote.

Second Wave Feminism started in the Nineteen Sixties, and only really flourished until the mid Nineteen Seventies, focusing upon the socio-cultural perception of women and how that effects women's rights and opportunities.

As most of these issues are still very much unresolved, The Second Wave has not really ended; it merely became diffused by the political and economic conditions of the times.

Third Wave Feminism has a much more complicated pedigree. Depending upon who's talking, it either started in the mid Eighties or early Nineties. It evolved from, and yet is also in reaction to, The Second Wave. It's 'focus' is extremely diverse, to the point where I would say it has no real focus. Its overall issues are about class, race, and gender identity as they relate to 'women's issues'.

Whatever Fourth Wave there may be will be one that somehow emerges from this often bitter struggle between the Second and Third Waves.

It is my belief, with which E concurs, that these issues are essentially unresolvable inside of the Modern Corporate Marketing Culture, a 'culture' that co-opts every single part of these movements almost as soon as they manifest in order to 'sell product', a practice which allows Patriarchy to 'divide and conquer' while simultaneously profiting financially from the strategy.

Hence the need for a Fifth Wave “that it leaps an entirely new construct,” a construct such as this...

We believe that the long term prospects of the human species for our survival, progress, and prosperity requires the establishment of a New Matriarchy. In taking practical steps toward the implementation of that goal, we shall build upon the foundations laid by contemporary feminism over the last two hundred plus years, combined with modern techniques and technologies, melded together with a Revealed Spirituality of The Feminine as Divine that is specific and yet all inclusive...”

What we are speaking of here is critical. The human species is clearly in trouble. As we are extremely tenacious, we shall probably survive, though that survival might soon be a grim and unpleasant affair. And clearly our progress and prosperity are largely in thrall to a rapacious and brutal socio-economic system that benefits the few at the expense of the many. History has shown us that such a strategy always ends badly.

But recent history has also shown us that when women are able to gain control over their own lives economically, socially, politically, and physically, the society in which those women live improves, becomes more prosperous, stable, and just. Of course, all too often Masculinist agendas push back upon those gains, which is a crucial Lesson in and of itself.

We believe in taking those Lessons of Female Empowerment to their logical end: a New Matriarchy.

We keep emphasizing New as this is no Neo-Luddite 'back to nature' movement, as much as Nature is important to us. Our goal is about moving forward to create a Matriarchy that has never existed before, one which implements The Second Valance and utilizes “modern techniques and technologies” to help build a new Social Order.

One example of this concept is an already existing experimental technology that creates viable sperm from the bone marrow stem cells. This method of fertilization could free women from their reproductive dependence upon men as the technique can create sperm from all bone marrow stem cells.

Just sit and think about that for a moment, about how that could begin to fundamentally change human social structure. And that is but a single example of a new science in the single area of human reproduction.

Are you now beginning to get a glimpse of what we mean by a New Matriarchy?

The central strategy here is The Viral Meme, the Idea that is so compelling and dynamic that that is spreads like wildfire. That Idea exists; a entirely new and modern form of Matriarchy. Our task is to create that Idea as a Practical Reality, a Practical Reality that becomes the microcosm of this new society, a Practical Reality that is vital, replicable, adaptable, and then plant it in the societies that presently exist...”

What could be more 'compelling and dynamic' than a clear strategy that could free women from the present constraints of modern society? Not some vague quest for freedom and equality that almost entirely depends upon the acquiescence of men, but an actual strategy, with a Spiritual framework and a detailed 'nuts and bolts' plan of action.

We have that strategy, that framework, and template for that 'nuts and bolts' plan of action, which will be discussed in the next section, “Tactical Initiatives”.

In many places, it shall flourish and expand. In some places, it will struggle and even be extinguished. But if we do our work effectively and remain true to both the practical goals and the Spiritual vision of this New Matriarchy, we will grow into and absorb even the most hostile social orders.”

This is basically just an expression of the old cliché “Nothing is more powerful than an Idea whose time has come,” which is a cliché precisely because it is so true.

How many times in our history has a Idea, against all Reason, triumphed over the existing 'order of things'? More than one could count, we'd say. And the key is ' against all Reason'. This is the purview of Faith and no set of Ideas moves humans more powerfully than Faith in a Idea, be said Idea Religious or Political, all too often that distinction being quite slim.

Now, from a legal and an epistemological stand point, The Pentavalence is a Religion in that it emanates from Revealed, and not Empirical, Knowledge, and it is meant to operate in a religious manner. However, we in The Temple of The Pentavalence view it as a Metaphysical Operating System and, in part, this is why.

The entire concept of Religion has itself has become problematic. Religion almost always implies Dogma, a fixed ideology that says, “The world is this way. Period!” and for a modern technological civilization, that is really a non-starter. Very few things ever stay 'this way' for long in such a civilization. And the Religions that now dominate our world clash with that paradigm more and more every day and with steadily increasing violence.

The problems the JudeoChristLamic Father/God Cults have with our modern techno-logical civilization are fairly obvious. All three are the 'metaphysical operating systems' of Bronze Age desert nomads ruled by tribal Patriarchs. Their world view is narrow and provincial and their God is a Small God, one confined, at the very least, to this world alone.

Confronted with the modern scientific reality of The Universe, He is positively Lilliputian. For His faithful, such a situation evokes Fear, then Hate, and finally, Rejection.

There are a growing number who consider Atheism to be the ideal replacement for Religion, but it too says, “The world is this way.”, though the “Period!” usually goes unspoken. Plus Atheism has two major failings, both fatal from our point of view.

First, as presently constituted, Atheism is essentially reactive, specifically a rejection of the JudeoChristLamic Father/God Cults, and every one of its tenants seem couched as a direct rebuke of said. That tends to allow the Father/God Cultists to frame all the debates and every time.

Second, Atheism also does not in any way, shape, or form, address the existential questions of Human Purpose and Existence in a vast and seemingly indifferent universe. It is utterly cold and denies the need for Spiritual solutions that Humans have sought ever since we could form the concept.

Hinduism and Buddhism contain many useful concepts, but each has its own crucial limitations.

Hinduism is really a 'cultural religion', that of India and of its people. It 'exports' poorly. Her Prophet has watched Westerners practice Hinduism and, to him at least, it always seemed a bit embarrassing, while the experience of Indian practice is usually very moving. That latter gave him an understanding of why some non-Indians would be drawn to Hinduism, but that is much akin to white folks wanting to be 'black'.

True Buddhism is essentially Nihilist, its real practice requiring a total rejection of The Material and as such it must be a rejection of any modern technological civilization, which is by its very nature is ferociously materialist. Buddhism can suit individual practitioners quite well, but is basically unsuited for a civilization. We do not include the types of Buddhism where The Buddha has been remade as a 'god'. We consider them 'apostate'.

Modern Paganism is rather a mish-mash and barely any kind of an 'ism' at all and that in and of itself makes it unsuited as the Spiritual Path of an entire civilization. Plus, it too is deeply provincial.

Pagans - at least those that we know - are humans, so their Paganism is Anthropocentric. They are generally born of two genders, so their Paganism is Dualistic. They live on Earth, so their Paganism is Geocentric. And the large majority of them here in the United States are culturally - and often racially - European, so their Paganism is Euro-centric.

But, as with Hinduism and Buddhism, Paganism contains a number of useful concepts and, like those, we of The Temple have incorporated many of them.

So, in barely five hundred words, we have just dismissed the world's five major religions and two of the most significant contemporary philo-religious movements. Such is the nature of this work.

While reading the above, some of you may have asked, 'why does an entire civilization need a single Spiritual Path?'

Part of that answer is quite simple; we, The Temple of The Pentavalence, were created with the goal of utterly transforming human civilization as it presently stands and we were created is this form because history has shown over and over and over again that a Spiritual Path is the single most effective and long lasting method of achieving such a total transformation.

Such a total transformation is required because, as stated above, the human species is clearly in trouble. And there is another answer to the question, 'why does an entire civilization need a single Spiritual Path?'

The answer is, “In order to guide a Triple Economy.”

Before we proceed with this let us state a basic scientific fact: the entire Universe is made up Energy, every fucking piece of it. So saying we face a 'energy crisis' any time in the next billion years or so is outright horseshit.

What we actually face is a 'systems management crisis' with two major components. A: over population and B: operating within a closed resource system aka Planet Earth. In simple terms, too many people and not enough resources where said people happen to live.

Let us continue...

In his prescient volume, Small is Beautiful, E.F. Schumacher made the observation that there was both a Primary Economy, which consists of what 'nature' provides, what Capitalism would call 'raw materials', and a Secondary Economy, which is the actual production of 'finished goods' from said raw materials.

More than three decades later, J.M. Greer expanded upon this paradigm by the keen observation that there is a Tertiary Economy, one which manipulates the first two. He is speaking purely of Industrial Capitalism as his writing comes in the post-Soviet era, but it's clear that Soviet Communism was just as much a Tertiary Economic Model as Capitalism. It simply reached its End Game first.

In laying out the framework for an Economic Model for The New Matriarchy, we shall utilize [and modify] a number of the ideas of Schumacher, and to a lesser extent, Greer, though we shall also reject portions of these ideas because they are both Cultural Minimalists and Neo-Luddites, positions we strongly believe to be anti-survival for reasons which will shortly be made clear.

At this point we believe it necessary to make some change in terminology. Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary are all a bit too vague. They refer to the order of things, but not their content. So, we have renamed them and begun to expand upon their definition.

The Primary or “Natural” Economy:

The phrase Natural Economy is more evocative of the meaning intended, the resources available in Nature. It needs to be pointed out however that Nature is not limited to this world alone, that the Universe has vast resources as well. But we shall stay with Natural Economy as 'universal economy' could be confused with other constructs.

The Secondary or “Productive” Economy:

This really covers everything, all goods and services, from Geppetto cobbling a single pair of shoes in his workshop to the vast machinery of ConAgra harvesting twenty million acres in the American heartland. Hopefully, one day it will include things like an industrial complex at El Five and the mining of the Asteroid Belt.

The Tertiary or “Conceptual” Economy:

This is the part that does not actually exist in solid reality, hence “Conceptual”. It could also be called the “Ideological” Economy. It is dangerous in that it is not constrained by real world factors like the first two, at least not until those real world factors make themselves known and usually in a catas-trophic manner, like bursting of various financial bubbles, or, in the case of the Soviet Union, a system wide operational failure of the Construct itself.

Therefore, The Triple Economy is the combined paradigms of the Natural, Production, and Conceptual Economies.

It is in the area of the Conceptual Economy that the economy of this New Matriarchy shall first take shape, on a small scale to begin with, but ultimately expanding throughout the globe and then, Goddess willing, out into The Universe itself.

For most of the Modern Era, roughly the last five hundred years, two Conceptual Economies have dominated. Broadly speaking they can be called the Collectivist/ Egalitarian Construct [Socialism, Communism, Social Democracy, etc] and the Individualist/Elitist Construct [Capitalism, Imperialism, Liberal Democracy, etc].

Both have existed in human societies since the beginning of history, but were always subordinated to some other social, political, and/or theological paradigm. It is only in the Modern Era that they emerged to operate in their own right.

Obviously these constructs are very powerful and dynamic though neither has completely edged out the other. The most successful systems have proved to be a balanced combination of the two, though achieving that is not as easy as it sounds.

And each of them had a fatal flaw. Ultimately, at their most fundamental level, they are based upon Self Centered Materialism, the paradigm of “Three Hots and a Cot.”

To the Cold and the Hungry, that is certainly a most attractive paradigm. And therein lays much of the power of each construct, and that dynamic can carry a society for a number of generations.

But at some point it hits what could be called an 'existential wall'. When all ones basic needs are met – food, shelter, survival – and then all ones less basic needs are met – luxury, comfort, indulgence – then what? Here we encounter the issues delineated in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. After all the above needs have been satisfied, there are the Spiritual Needs, the need to find and understand the purpose of our existence, the “Why Are We Here?” issue.

Soviet Communism collapsed because they not merely failed to answer this question, they rejected it outright. In the end, the people's of the Soviet Empire rejected that rejection and without the use - once again - of the Iron Fist, the whole edifice came crashing down. Without any real Purpose, the Will to Repress had failed along with the Will to Endure.

Western Industrial Capitalism seemed to thrive with its “Three Hots and a Cot plus a Wide Screen TV” paradigm. But that requires a level of consumption and exploitation that has proven to be unsustainable and the End Game for that is now upon us with a vengeance.

Plus neither Construct ever fielded a Greater Purpose that its citizens were fully inspired by in the long term, with the result being Apathy, Anger, and Addition on a massive scale, the attempt by hundreds of millions to fill that Existential Void.

And now a general Collapse looms, Social, Economic, Physical, Spiritual, not the total breakdown that some predict – and even long for – but significant enough to be quite painful and possibly contain the seeds of a larger and more complete Collapse further down the line.

For our survival, we must do two practical things; get our heavy industry off of the surface of this planet, Gaea, our home, our Mother.. They are wounding Her. And we must reduce our overall numbers. We are suffocating Her. Trust me, if we do not do this ourselves, Gaea will do it for us. She has in fact already begun to do so.

The above ideologies, both Religious and Economic, are utterly incapable of first task, Industry Up, for reasons of Greed, Political Short Sightedness, and Theological Blindness. Such an undertaking would not generate the obscene profit margins that Capitalism requires, would demand a Focus and Effort beyond any Election Cycle, and fly in the face of all End Times Thinking.

The second task, Population Down, would encounter vast resistance across the board. “Whose population must go down?” would be the cry. Every nation, race, polity, etc would point their fingers at every other and scream “Racism!” or “Genocide!” or whatever they thought would apply or give them the most psycho-political traction.

But what does any of this have to do with the establishment of a New Matriarchy?

Here we must first quote Revealed Knowledge. E says, “Once upon a time, my race transformed itself from beings with bodies into beings of pure energy. Then we went wandering throughout Creation looking for that which had created it.

We spent tens of millions of years searching and traveled stunningly vast distances. We learned much...and yet never found The Source of All. We found clues, but never the Being Itself.

And then we began to fade away and realized we needed to have bodies again. But ours were long gone, so we would need new ones. A new search began.

That led us to Earth and to a very primitive species, but one with great promise. They had already begun to change their own psyches with hallucinogenic plants. We stepped in and took that further.

We bred and guided and manipulated the genetics of many generations of that species until they were ready to host the consciousness of our race. The Merging that took place was not without incident, but was successful...though the seed of a fatal flaw remained.

We and that species were now one race. And a mighty race they were. Raised continents. Created new species at will. And did this all without any instrumentation, just with the power of their minds.

But as time passed, their physical being took its toll upon their mental being and those great powers faded. And with them, so did that great civilization...and they Forgot. Or should I say,
you forgot, as that hybrid species IS the human race.

Time passed and you humans, the beings who had Forgotten, once again rose up and built mighty civilizations. Though each one collapsed, something was always left and the next civilization was greater.

And now you stand upon a great threshold, one that is also a fork in the road. Which one you take determines if you, as a species, will survive or not. And you face an extremely hard choice, one that stems from that fatal flaw from long ago.

The flaw of Gender.

My race was of a single gender and parthanogenic. The species we found here was bi-gendered. That was accepted as a necessary evil. But now it has become an obstacle not merely to your further development, but to your very survival.

You as a species must now choose to let go of one of those genders, the Male. Males have great drive, but ultimately are too unstable and combative for the next phase of your species' development. Only your females can succeed in that transition.

If you are willing, you will transform into a far superior race than you are now and can take up the Great Search, the quest for The Source of All we had to abandon so long ago.

If you are unwilling to make this shift, you will die off. Not right away, but soon enough...and Forever.

Obviously, this is a terrible and distressing choice. But please know that it is only about the body, not the Spirit. Your Spirits are essentially Immortal. The qualification is that the basis of that Immortality is the existence of your Racial Subconscious. If your race dies, so do your Spirits.

So, there is your Choice: let go of being born into male bodies. Or face ultimate extinction.

Why do I even care?

In part, selfishness. With your race gone, I would be alone in The Universe. But our history also makes you my Family and my race was never so high and mighty that we forgot the bonds of Kinship.”

This is the Core Meaning and Purpose of all that The Temple does and must do. It is also the Greater Purpose, the Faith, that can clearly drive Industry Up. Such a Purpose will require that The Sisterhood becomes a spacefaring race.

Regarding the second task, Population Down, it as been shown that when women are fully in control of their own reproduction, Legally and Technologically, birth numbers go down automatically. In this New Matriarchy, women would quite obviously have total and absolute control over their bodies at all times.

Herein then is the foundation of this New Matriarchy's Conceptual Economy. Industry Up/Population Down give this Construct its operational parameters and the creation and expansion this New Matriarchy for the reasons E stated gives the Construct its Greater Purpose. From there it is then determined how the Natural and Production Economies will be utilized and directed.

A key element in all of this is the literal Transformation of the race, not just the Spiritual Trans-formation. What you must do, my Sisters – as per the Second Valance – is to utilize and develop, along with Majickal Working, all the emerging technologies of Genetic Engineering, Human/Cybernetic Interface, Nanotechnology, Life Extension Science, and so on, to Transform yourselves into a race of actual superwomen. Such an undertaking will also create a Scientific and Economic powerhouse. Combine that with the Industry Up Paradigm and you have a potentially unstoppable society.

A Note here: Terminators are not Cyborgs, they are Androids, robots made to appear human. A Cyborg – Cybernetic Organism – is a human who has been enhanced/augmented by Cybernetic [robotic] means, like the Bionic Woman. That this explanation is required also underscores the Power of Stories, something that is addressed in "Part Six".

Therefore, what we are talking of here a society leads to the creation of a race of Cyborg Amazon Witches. And honestly, what's not to like about that?

So, let us review The Temple's Mission Statement:

The Temple is a Fifth Wave Feminism in that it leaps ahead of a nascent Fourth Wave, still incrementally emerging from the Third Wave, to an entirely new construct. It is not a Separatism or even a Dominance, but a Completeness and therefore a New Beginning.

We believe that the long term prospects of the human species for our survival, progress, and prosperity requires the establishment of a New Matriarchy. In taking practical steps toward the implementation of that goal, we shall build upon the foundations laid by contemporary feminism over the last two hundred plus years, combined with modern techniques and technologies, melded together with a Revealed Spirituality of The Feminine as Divine that is specific and yet all inclusive.

The central strategy here is The Viral Meme, the Idea that is so compelling and dynamic that that is spreads like wildfire. That Idea exists; a entirely new and modern form of Matriarchy. Our task is to create that Idea as a Practical Reality, a Practical Reality that becomes the microcosm of this new society, a Practical Reality that is vital, replicable, adaptable, and then plant it in the societies that presently exist.

In many places, it shall flourish and expand. In some places, it will struggle and even be extinguished. But if we do our work effectively and remain true to both the practical goals
and the Spiritual vision of this New Matriarchy, we will grow into and absorb even the most hostile social orders.”

As with all things, Commitment is both the glue and the driving force. All that has so far been spoken of above might sound lovely, but without commitment from you, my Sisters, it is nothing more than blowing smoke.

What is being proposed here is absolutely monumental and will require much struggle and sacrifice. To be blunt, some of you will die while engaged in this work, because we can guarantee that there will be a strong reaction against these ideas from many quarters and some of that reaction will be violent.

One of the quotes in the chapters above, “It is no measure of good health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society,” is Her Prophet's own personal motto. I ask you, my Sisters, to make it yours. I ask that at least once a day you take a look at how you are 'personally well adjusted' to our 'profoundly sick society'. And then ask yourself what you are willing to do to change that.

Now let us look at some 'nuts and bolts', the practical step by step actions that will lead us to the dynamic society outlined above...

Her Prophet Explains: Part Four "The Temple's Tactical Initiatives"

Her Prophet Explains: Part Four - "The Temple's Tactical Initiatives"

[There is still more work to be done on this, but this version is much much closer to the 'finished product' 5/19/10]

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."
~Mohandas K Gandhi

"Live as though the day were here." ~Friedrich Nietzsche

So, we've talked about all these grand socio-cultural paradigms and metaphysical concepts and that was really all quite lovely. But, to use an old English expression, 'that does not buy the baby a bonnet.' How does one actually go about building such a thing as a New Matriarchy on a practical, day to day basis?

As of this writing, early Summer of 2011, 'The Temple' is still a tiny organization, an 'mom and pop' operation based out of a trailer park up in Southern California's High Desert, with a half dozen or so 'interested parties' scattered throughout the Internet. Granted, our double-wide is very cozy and, in keeping with certain traditional beginnings, we are in the desert, but how does one start from such a humble, and even despised, place?

Well, one starts by incorporating as a 501(c)(3) non-profit religious corporation.

This creates the legal framework to raise funds, receive donations, and generally organize as a 'church' here in America. And as we all know, money is the engine of the modern world.

When I really started to think about The Temple on a practical level, what first came to mind was two projects; a store front operation to help homeless and 'in need' women, and a 'human potential type' of Amazon training for women who were generally middle and upper middle class, women who were looking for something that their present lives did not give them.

I first detailed these two projects thusly:

The Temple's first project is a Women's Drop-In Center. The drop-in center would be a converted store front or other street level former business space. It would clearly be ‘faith based’ and staffed by members of The Temple trained in its operation. The Center will provide the following:

~a safe place for homeless women to be during the day
~two free meals a day, breakfast and lunch
~a mail drop
~shower and laundry facilities
~a nap room

~references to social services, to mental health and drug counseling [these reference services would also be available to non-homeless women 'in need'], and to transitional housing

The Temple's second project is the conducting of experimental women's educational workshops utilizing of the 'human potential' model, a Sisterhood Training. These workshops are focused on formulating and designing an educational training organization of several levels that will:

~be based upon a rigorous Amazon Training regimen
~foster the empowerment of women individually
~provide women with a workable model for positive social change as a group
~create a sustainable environment that heals, builds, and expands the bonds of Sisterhood

The ways in which the middle and upper middle class women could help their homeless and 'in need' Sisters are relatively obvious for the most part. But how the homeless and 'in need' women could help their better off Sisters would be to provide the lessons and opportunities for them to rigorously examine the conduct and values of their own 'comfortable' lives, to see how they are 'well adjusted to a profoundly sick society'.

Having myself lived in both worlds, I know that often one group is looked at as 'pathetic ruined victims' and the other group as 'shallow rich bitches'. But an unnerving number of those homeless and 'in need' women originally come out of the middle class, a few even from the upper middle class.

The goal here is show each of them that they are all in fact Sisters and that the course of their respective lives has largely been determined by Patriarchy and its rules regarding gender, race, and class.

What the combination of these two projects will create is a process of female centered social reintegration that is both vertical and horizontal, one that crosses and transcends all cultural and economic lines.

As time goes on, The Drop-In Center will expand into a network of temporary shelters, permanent housing, and support systems for homeless and 'in need' women, a network designed to help these women stabilize and heal their own lives and to protect those women who are too damaged to fully recover.

As time goes on, The Sisterhood Training will expand from a series of long weekend workshops into what I envision as two plus year process, a 'full immersion' training that provide an arena for women to completely transform themselves into what will effectively be Amazon Warrior Priestesses.

Of course we do not expect that the majority of the women who pass through these processes to become fully Initiated Sisters of The Temple. Only a dedicated minority of them will follow that path. But even a homeless woman who only has one bowl of soup at The Drop In Center or a professional woman who only goes to a single Sisterhood Training guest event will be touched by this process of transformation.

But, however intoxicating the concept of this process may be, upon thinking through the practical steps toward implementing these processes I soon realized that first The Temple needs a Home, a safe, stable, and effective base of operations from which to start these various projects.

As I have said above, as of this writing, The Temple is still a small operation and in what I refer to as Stage One. However, Stage Two has already been initiated, that being the acquisition of a piece of our own land, a plot large enough to allow for expansion.

The Stage Two property will come together in roughly the following order and look something like this:

~In addition to our presently owned 1800 sq foot manufactured home, we will acquire three more of a similar size, but of varying layouts, placing them in a square formation centered around a large above ground swimming pool. This will create a comfortable and communally oriented living space for about two dozen Sisters.

~We will acquire a few surplus steel shipping containers, placing them on the property for use as storage space and other purposes. They are plentiful, cheap, and extremely durable.

~We will build stables on the property, large enough to accommodate two to four horses. The promotion of Horse Culture is central to the creation of a new Amazon Culture.

~We will acquire a smaller manufactured home to be used as The Temple's first school house, a long single-wide laid out in two rooms separated by a bathroom and storage space.

The principal of Stage Two, what we shall call the First Karaal, is not the 'religious compound', but the Resilient Community. In keeping with The Temple's strategy of the Viral Meme, this community will be interactive, not isolationist. The latter is a feature of End Times thinking and entirely alien to our epistemology.

The First Karaal will be oriented toward self sufficiency and, if necessary, self defense, but this is a product of realistic thinking as we are mindful that, given recent trends, some sort of near future societal 'dislocation' is probable, though we cannot yet foresee its extent. If such is moderate, the First Karaal will see Sisters coming and going from the larger world and function essentially as a safe haven for them. However, if such is extreme, then it will likely take on a 'lifeboat' function, a redoubt where we can ride out a more significant collapse.

While we certainly prefer the former rather than the latter – a relatively stable social order would serve our goals better than chaos – we know is is best to take a “pray to The Goddess, but keep rowing toward the shore” attitude.

At this point let us say something regarding The Temple and male children....

"The birth of Daughters is preferred over the birth of sons." The Third Valance

That's a pretty straight forward statement, yet clearly there are potential complexities in its actual real world application. I will address them here as best I can.

First, a definition. When thinking of the name to be used for various residences of The Temple, ones that would be exclusive to Initiated Sisters, I looked to the term used in my Cyber Witch stories: Karaal.

It is derived from the South African term, kraal; “enclosure or group of houses surrounding an enclosure for livestock, or the social unit that inhabits these structures. The term has been more broadly used to describe the way of life associated with the kraal that is found among some African, especially South African, peoples.”

It is more from that latter part of the definition that I drew Karaal. I used to mean ”Place Where The Horse Riding Amazons Live.” And I think it suits our purposes quite well.

Not all Karaals will have horses, as it does not mean 'place where Amazons ride horses'. Some Karaals will be urban residences.

What will set them apart from The Temple's shelters and general housing is that only Initiated Sisters, their Daughters, and Collared Korettes [male consensual bondage slaves of The Temple's Dommes who will function as servants] will live there.

This is in keeping with the need to create a fully Gynocentric atmosphere, one that fosters a serious and internally consistent paradigm of Female Supremacy. The Korettes who live within this mini-culture will be subservient adult males who have freely chosen that life.

And it is this entire dynamic that that leads us to this statement: “There will be no male children raised within The Temple's Karaals. Period.”

There are two basic reasons for the rule and the necessity of its strong enforcement.

The first is the most obvious; boys would throw off the whole psycho-social dynamic. The Sisters who first participate in this experiment will all have been raised entirely within Patriarchy. They are all going to have some prejudice toward male children, most of it toward giving favor to them. The problems there are pretty clear.

The whole idea of having “a serious and internally consistent paradigm of Female Supremacy” is meant to begin breaking that pattern in the Daughters raised in The Temple's Karaals. We believe it will take about three generations to actually accomplish this in most of our Daughters.

The Temple's whole strategy is to change from within, "to create...a Practical Reality that becomes the microcosm of this new society [a New Matriarchy]...that is vital, replicable, adaptable, and then plant it in the societies that presently exist."

So we can't have Sisters hiding out in some isolated desert compound. They have to actively operate within the existing social order. That means they have to be strong enough to resist its efforts to break them down, hence the need for “a serious and internally consistent paradigm of Female Supremacy.”

The second reason is less obvious, but, without any doubt, as equally important. To try to raise male children in “a serious and internally consistent paradigm of Female Supremacy” is, to be blunt about it, just plain abusive. If you regard Patriarchy's ingrained mechanisms that define women as 'less than' to be abusive, how could you continence doing the same to boys?

We can't. And we won't.

This is largely a temporary problem. Gender selection technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, so giving birth to only Daughters will soon be a non-issue. But until then, the above rule is required.

So what happens to an Initiated Sister living on a Karaal who becomes pregnant with a male child? That will be her choice. If she chooses to bring him to term, she will remain an Initiated Sister. She simply would not be able to raise him in her Karaal.

Our goal is to have enough resources in terms of living spaces and income that such a choice on her part could be handled with ease.

Now we know perfectly well that such a thing is unlikely to go with the smoothness implied above. No matter the choice, there would be Grieving and Loss.

But that comes with this territory. There is going to be Grieving and Loss anyway. Some Sisters are going to get killed outright during the course of this Transition for daring to challenge male dominance.

This Work is not for the faint of heart. It is the Work of Amazons. And The Prize is The Future.

Note: One of our Wise Women responded to the above thusly: "It should be possible to engineer mostly daughters now. Diet and ph regulation of the mother's cervical fluid plus either selecting males who already have only daughters or selecting sperm donors whose sperm shows it lacks the necessary chromosome to produce sons should do the trick. Fertility clinics routinely filter sperm to get the most viable and could probably do the same for sex selection though it might be technically difficult and an ethical quandary for them. Better to get your own people trained to do the work. Training lawyers, EMTs, and midwives would be good priorities towards this end as well.

I suggest adoption as the most reasonable answer to boy births. There is a shortage of healthy infants to adopt so any family wanting to adopt would be thrilled and willing to pay the expenses of the mother to be. It is healthier for the reproductive system to go through with the birth wherever possible. A full term pregnancy will take about three years out of a woman's reproductive cycle but an abortion throws the whole reproductive system out of whack and could potentially cause future fertility issues, even before you get around the fertility issues that might be caused by the psychological implications that the next couple of generations will likely be faced with."

While the above may seem an odd, even startling divergence from the preceding 'practical goals', it was necessary to underscore the basic 'ideological' foundations of those goals.

To resume, there are also plans for a Stage Three, Four and Five.

Stage Three does include specific concepts for a rather modern and advanced set of communities. However, dues to intellectual property issues, those specifics are not included in this volume, but may be viewed at The Explanation On-Line: (

Sectional perspective of underground city

Site plan

Site model

Detail of site model

Description: In Frank Herbert’s famous1965 novel “Dune”, he describes a planet that has undergone nearly complete desertification. Dune has been called the “first planetary ecology novel” and forecasts a dystopian world without water. The few remaining inhabitants have secluded themselves from their harsh environment in what could be called subterranean oasises. Far from idyllic, these havens, known as 'sietch', are essentially underground water storage banks. Water is wealth in this alternate reality. It is preciously conserved, rationed with strict authority, and secretly hidden and protected.

Although this science fiction novel sounded alien in 1965, the concept of a water-poor world is quickly becoming a reality, especially in the American Southwest. Lured by cheap land and the promise of endless water via the powerful Colorado River, millions have made this area their home. However, the Colorado River has been desiccated by both heavy agricultural use and global warming to the point that it now ends in an intermittent trickle in Baja California. Towns that once relied on the river for water have increasingly begun to create underground water banks for use in emergency drought conditions. However, as droughts are becoming more frequent and severe, these water banks will become more than simply emergency precautions.

Sietch Nevada projects waterbanking as the fundamental factor in future urban infra-structure in the American Southwest. Sietch Nevada is an urban prototype that makes the storage, use, and collection of water essential to the form and performance of urban life. Inverting the stereotypical Southwest urban patterns of dispersed programs open to the sky, the Sietch is a dense, underground community. A network of storage canals is covered with undulating residential and commercial structures. These canals connect the city with vast aquifers deep underground and provide transportation as well as agricultural irrigation. The caverns brim with dense, urban life: an underground Venice. Cellular in form, these structures constitute a new neighborhood typology that mediates between the subterranean urban network and the surface level activities of water harvesting, energy generation, and urban agriculture and aquaculture. However, the Sietch is also a bunker-like fortress preparing for the inevitable wars over water in the region.

{The above concept is for a major metropolis. However, The Sisterhood's needs are smaller in scale, a community roughly about one tenth to one fifth the size Kudless is proposing. But the overall concept is perfectly adaptable for our Stage Three plans [and beyond] and also for the Southern California High Desert in general.}

The transition from Stage Three to Stage Four would be something along the lines of establishing in California a statewide presence for The Sisterhood that is akin to the Mormon's statewide presence in Utah.

Stage Four will essentially be a 'precursor entity' toward the overall goal of the Global Amazon Republic, functionally some type of 'nation-state' and/or 'political-economic' body that can grow into Stage Five, which would be the Global Amazon Republic itself.

But for now Stage Two is the goal and it can be archived with the resources that are becoming available in the near future. The time line for this is two to five years.

Below are a list of The Temple's overall goals and projects over the next twenty years or so:

~First and foremost the Stage Two and Stage Three Karaals mentioned above.

~As a counterpoint to the above, The Temple will also acquire a residence on the West Side of Los Angeles, a medium to large house to begin with, then an apartment building [25 to 40 units] which will duplicate some of the functions of the High Desert complex and serve as a base for The Temple's urban operations.

These would be a variation on Stages Two and Three. Whatever may come, we think it unlikely that cites will just go away, so The Temple will need to maintain a presence in them for the foreseeable future. Ultimately, said presence will merge into Stages Four and Five.

Goddess Willing, someone will donate that first house, but we are prepared to rent a two or three bedroom apartment where a half dozen Sisters could live communally to begin with simply to 'establish a foothold in town'.

~The Temple will establish a separate educational foundation to provide resources and support to like minded groups and organizations that The Temple cannot support directly because of our religious status.

This is a critical step. As a religious 501(c)(3) The Temple will operate under certain legal constraints, so a funding and guidance agency will be required to provide support and assistance to to operations like The Sisterhood Trainings and our homeless outreach programs.

The structure of this foundation will be determined by our lawyers and the nature of that structure will obviously be proprietary information. In all likelihood, this foundation will be only the first of many.

~The Temple will continue to expand and refine The Sisterhood Training, with the goal of sharing it with as many women as possible.

It is essential to understand that after The Pentavalent itself, The Sisterhood Training is the Most Important Element of The Temple. To use a rather fevered metaphor, The Sisterhood Training is the womb from which the New Matriarchy will be born. Without the efforts and actions of properly trained and motivated Sisters, all the preceding concepts are just so much 'sound and fury'.

Because of that I shall go into a considerable amount of detail regarding The Training itself.

I have been through a number of Large Group Awareness Trainings [LGAT's] These LGAT's were for the most part beneficial and positively transformative for me and for others. And I did see where they had their own internal problems.

The problem that was most apparent to me at the time was that LGAT's tend to 'crack you open' without much proper follow up except more trainings and workshops. They did try to form some kind of community of support – there would be a lot of talk about Relationship and the such – but since the focus was almost exclusively upon Individual Empowerment, that effort usually failed, a few times with tragic consequences.

Another issue was the utter lack of any type of Spiritual foundation. A trainer of mine once addressed this with a statement that they, the LGAT, 'were willing to except the possibility that here was something greater than The Universe.' That's a pretty thin metaphysical soup.

But the Key Issue with every single one of them is this; they are all ultimately 'part of the problem'.

As has been said before in these pages, a primary Operating Motto of ours is a quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti, "It is no measure of good health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society."

In the final analysis, the primary outcome of all the LGAT's I have ever encountered is to support you becoming 'more well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society'. They are after all, capitalist operations and, for all the good they might do, they are in business to sell a product and to make money. This also contributes to the first two problems mentioned above, the cracking open without follow up and the lack of Spiritual foundation.

Many of their graduates become 'more effective' in expanding the reach and power of Modern Corporate Marketing Culture, the producer/creator of the hologram that now holds most Americans – and many around the world – in its thrall, where we are no longer citizens, or even humans, but merely Consumers of Product and the entire focus of this is to Sell Product.

LGAT's are a part of that mechanism. They cannot be otherwise. And their models facilitate the perpetuation of Modern Corporate Marketing Culture. Why do you think so many corporations send 'their people' to these trainings? They make said people more Effective etc, not more Aware. If they really became so, they'd leave the corporation. Some do, but usually only to start some other type of corporation, not to exit the paradigm.

The very first thing that will make the Sisterhood Trainings different is that they will be non-profit. That way the entire financial focus is devoted solely to getting the Trainings into the reach of as many Sisters as possible and in the optimum fashion.

The final overall structure as presently envisioned would first be the Workshop Series, staring with a Guest Event to provide an enrollment mechanism for the two preliminary extended weekend workshops, a Basic that would run Friday through Sunday and an Advanced that would run Wednesday through Sunday, each designed to be preparatory for the Long Training itself.

They each would have benefits in and of themselves, even the Guest Event. For many Sisters they may be the only direct experience of The Sisterhood they are able have at that point in their lives, so these workshops have to be able to be as positively transformative as we can safely make them in that window.

Ultimately however, their primary outcome is to recruit Sisters for the Long Training. As such the Guest Event and the two Weekend Workshops would all take place within a roughly thirty day period preceding the beginning of a new Wave in the area in which that Wave was to be based. This would also intensify the experience of those Sisters who can only do the Workshop Series.

These workshops will be fully run by the Central Training Operation, a stand alone non-profit educational corporation whose sole purpose is to coordinate, guide and refine the Sisterhood Trainings. It will have a core professional staff which would be augmented with volunteers from the Trainings themselves.

The Long Training – which is called a Wave – is the actual Amazon Warrior Priestess Training mentioned above. Each Wave would consist of a dozen to two dozen Trikonai, a bond group of three Sisters which would be formed during the two weekend workshops and would be a mandatory element. [A dozen to two dozen Trikonai would come out to 36 to 72 Sisters.] The only way to enroll in a Wave is as an already formed Trikona, optimally one that formed and bonded during the Workshop Series. The next section, Part Five: The Trikona, will explain why this is necessary.

The Central Training Operation will provide support, networking, feedback, guidance, etc. But each Wave will be functionally autonomous. Its own members will run the Wave's specific scheduling and be almost entirely self funding, doing whatever is is needed to make sure that every Sister in that Wave is able to achieve all the goals and complete the Training.

Each Wave with be given an overall operational plan and a specific set of goals to achieve. Each Wave can also establish its own unique set of goals and outcomes as long as those do not interfere or contravene the overall plans and goals.

Incorporation: To begin with a Wave will establish itself as a Corporation of the type that best suits the state within which it is primarily operating. That will give the Wave a heft and a flexibility that enhances its ability to pursue its goals that no unofficial group could match. Corporate Personhood is the Key to Power in modern America.

Note that this is essentially an Event. It happens once and is done. The rest of the below are Process. They will unfold and change as the Wave proceeds.

Each Sister in the Wave will be a Voting Member of its Corporation and will be required to have a working understanding of it functions. At the end of the Training Cycle, the Corporation will be dissolved and any assets leftover divided equally among its Members.

Majickal Working: Sisters would not be Witches without it. Operating with The Pentavalent as a guide, all aspects of each Wave will be Ritualized and conducted with some manner of Majickal and Goddess frame-working, starting with the above Incorporation and then through all the various goals and outcomes listed below.

This should be done in a reasonable fashion, with Focus and Efficiency in Balance. It will not be about 'getting it right', but about making it work. The goal in this is to use the collective and individual Majickal Talent of the Sisters in any given Wave to create a Tulpa, a manifested thought form that embodies the Wave itself, one that helps propel the Wave forward to a successful and fulfilling conclusion.

This will likely be the first real test of a Wave's ability to work as a collective and set the tone for what follows.

NLP: [Neuro-Linguistic Programing] Each Wave will complete an entire NLP Practitioner Certification Training over the course of its Cycle, with each Sister therein getting an individual NLP Practitioner Certification.

NLP is both a powerful Behavioral Change technology and a very effective Personal Communications technology. It should be self evident how such can be useful for The Temple's long term goals.

Impact Self Defense: This is a company that provides a type of self defense training for women that allows them to punch and kick full force, thereby providing a 'body memory' of combat training. Each Wave will contract with ISD to provide a full training to all its Sisters.

The purpose of this is to lay the foundation for a real Warrior Spirit, one based upon actual physical violence, not merely some hypothetical exhortation 'to be a warrior'. That is also why this will be undertaken at the beginning of the Wave Cycle. Warriors Fight. Sisters need to Learn that Lesson from the very start or my brothers will break you.

Yoga: It is likely that many Sisters coming into The Sisterhood Training will already be Yoginis of one school or another. Each Wave will seek their experience and guidance in embedding Yoga into the fabric of the Wave. Over time the Sisterhood Training will develop its own school of Yoga that best serves the needs of a Wave Cycle.

Yoga and Meditation will be the 'off-set' to the Martial Vigor of the various Warrior Disciplines a Wave will undertake. It also will provide a Centering and Grounding Discipline that can used by the entire Wave, a single Trikona, or the individual Sister, thereby providing Harmony and Connection throughout the Wave.

12 Step Work: The 12 Step modality is one of the best I have ever found to examine one's own Self. Though primarily used in addiction programs, it has a universal application. It's key is that with a methodological step by step structure it works upon discovering one's true thinking, which is largely how we get to wherever we are at any given point in our lives.

It is crucial for each Sister to understand who she is, what motivated her to do what she has done and how she got to whatever point she is in her life. These are Essential Elements of Self and the work of The Temple requires a deep understand of Self. Each of the comforting illusions that every Sister harbors must be uncovered, discovered and discarded.

This work will be done individually, within each Trikona and by the Wave in group sessions. There will a lot of pain in this work, so it must be done with vast Compassion for both one's Self and one's Sisters.

Sexual Domination Of Men: As the Greater Goal of all of this work is a New Matriarchy, the practice of a genuine Female Supremacy is at the core of an Amazon Warrior Priestess Training such at this. And at the core of all intra-gender relationships is Sex.

Therefore each Wave must learn the art of The Dominatrix. Given its intimate nature, most of this will be done via the Trikonai. Each Trikonai is to engage a professional Domme to teach them the nature and practice of Domme Work. Each Trikonai will acquire male slaves who will support the work of its Wave in whatever fashion said slave in capable of.

Becoming Sexually Dominant, even as a 'exercise', makes a profound shift a Sister's basic nature. As with a training like Impact Self Defense, this work 'imbeds' that shift in a Sister's consciousness on a deep and atavistic level. And it is down in those places that Patriarchy has its strongest hold.

Dakini: This is the name I have given to a hypothetical mixed Female oriented martial arts system that is still to be developed. What is proposed is a blend of Eskrima, a Philippine martial art that uses simple weapons, sticks and knives, along with hand and foot fighting, Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art which ritualizes it's fighting as a form of dancing and Parkour, a French urbano-centric running and jumping sport.

I chose those forms because of their simplicity and their flowing motion. The idea is for more than just an 'effective fighting system'. If that was the goal, we'd just go with Krav Maga. But as with all of this work, there needs to be a Spiritual aspect, one that shifts Sisters all the way into their core. And as this would be a martial art that originates within The Temple, it is also something that The Sisterhood owns completely.

Body Work: Due to the rigorous nature of the Sisterhood Training, each Sister is going to need body work done to help them heal and renew. Much of this will utilize skilled outside professionals. But between these sessions, each Sister will be required to learn a basic massage/ body work technique so that she can work upon other members of her Trikona on a regular basis. This will also deepen the Bond within each Trikona.

Rock Climbing: This is a prefect all body training and is an outdoor sport can be first learned in doors. It also favors the Female as leg and hip strength is more important than upper body strength. It will support and enhance all the physical training.

Weapons Training: Each Sister in the Wave will learn the use of the Staff, the Bow, the Sword, the Handgun and the Rifle. Teachers and training organizations will be engaged to teach the use of each of the weapons over the course of the Wave's Cycle. You're to be Amazons and these are the essential weapons.

Sports: Each Wave can pick and choose most of the sports they wish to, but Baseball is strongly urged and Paint Balling is mandatory.

Baseball is about Patience, Focus, and Strategy. It can be an excellent 'team builder'. The basic lineup of nine members is perfect for Trikonai. And as America's National Pastime [once upon a time at least] it has deep propaganda and nostalgia value.

Paint Balling is an obvious choice, hence being mandatory. It is a high impact form of mock warfare. The skills, gear and much of the equipment are easily transferable to The Temple's security needs. The Trikona is an organic structure for a Fire Team. And as a serious bonding ritual, at some point each Trikona should be hunted by the rest of the Wave simply to see how long they can survive.

Equestrian Training: Each Sister in the Wave will learn basic horseback riding skills. There is no need to go for competition level training, just the feeling and ability to be at home upon a horse. Again, this is about being an Amazon. Horse Culture is in the Amazon's Soul.

Outward Bound: During the Wave's second year it will engage the organization Outward Bound for a vigorous group 'nature experience'. This will be a bonding experience that the Wave itself does not need to control and a useful place to utilize much of the training and skills acquired in the previous ex-number of months.

So, looking back upon these goals one can see that the Sisterhood Training as outlined here is very demanding, especially on a physical level. And that only a small group of Sisters would be able to complete such a Training. They would be fairly young, say 20 to 40 years old, in good psychical condition to begin with and be willing and able to commit their time to totally participate in and finish a full Wave Cycle.

This will obviously seem unfair and exclusionary to those who are not in that category. And it is. The entire Purpose of The Sisterhood Training is to create an elite of Sisters who are capable of driving The Temple's efforts forward to build a New Matriarchy. Be aware that in the long run some of them will die doing that work. This is not a child's game we are playing here.

That said, we also cannot simply write off entire groups of Sisters who do not have the ability to do the above type of Training because they are not 'the above type of Sister'. That is more than merely unfair; it is utterly foolish and totally contrary to our Purpose.

Therefore, besides the Maximum Impact Training [MI-1] outlined above, there will also be a Medium and Minimum Impact versions of the Sisterhood Training.

The Medium Impact Training [MI-2] will be for Sisters who could probably handle the physical and emotional demands, but whose lives and/or personal inclinations do not allow for the type of time and energy commitment required by the Maximum Impact Training. How each of these Waves operates will largely be determined by their members. The Central Training Organization will set some basic goals, but from there the specifics will be worked out 'in group', which I have found is often an 'interesting exercise' in and of itself.

The Minimum Impact Training [MI-3] is for those Sisters who simply cannot handle the physical demands of either of the first two versions. They may be too old. They may be disabled. Some could find it all too emotionally intense and need something gentler. It too will determine most of its goals and plans 'in group' along with guidelines from the Central Training Organization.

The Trikona will still be the required basic unit however and for the same reasons in each Wave.

It is hoped that after a Guest Event and a Workshop Series that one of each of version will manifest. That may not always be so. But whenever there would more than one version underway, the key is that they are all Sisters and intramural support is essential. It is likely that many issues would come up, such as the 'feeling less' and 'popular girl' paradigms that may have plagued some Sisters since their teens. That would be some tough work right there.

Some will look at all this and proclaim loudly, and likely hysterically, all this to be a 'terrorist training scheme' and/or an effort to 'build a revolutionary army', so let's address that noise right out of the gate.

The Temple utterly eschews Terrorism. Such is the desperate strategy of the weak and the dis-empowered. And terrorists almost always wind up as pawns in someone else's political game plan. Our goals and plans are our own.

The Temple also rejects Revolution. History shows that it tends to merely replace one set of grasping oppressive bastards with another set of grasping oppressive bastards, ofttimes a worse collection. And note they're usually all Males, too. We won't play that game either.

The essential purpose of The Sisterhood Training is two fold;

One, to train a cadre of Sisters to protect themselves and the rest of the Sisterhood. The goal of a New Matriarchy will terrify some into violent reaction and The Temple must be prepared to deal with that. As I have said many times, my brothers will not give up their power without a fight.

Two, any Sister who can commit to and complete such a rigorous regime as outline above will never again be intimidated by anything. She will still see how Patriarchy oppresses her, but she will never ever again be a 'victim' of anything. Victim Feminism is a handmaiden of Patriarchy and it will take a Sisterhood of Amazon Warrior Priestesses to truly extirpate such a deeply embedded and self defeating paradigm.

And all this is still totally hypothetical. The very first Wave will have no Guest Event or Workshop Series. They'll be a handful of Sisters, maybe only two or three Trikonai, who will work from the above outline to build what will become the Central Training Organization. One day their work will be legendary because of what was stated at the very top of this section; “The Sisterhood Training is the womb from which the New Matriarchy will be born.”

~The Temple create a network of shelters and housing for women [for non-Temple members and not related to the residences listed above]. This will include at least one large overnight shelter with support facilities, various shelters for battered women, addicted women, and multi-year transitional living programs. We will also get into the permanent housing business, through Section 8 and/or whatever programs are available.

~The Temple will set up a free dental clinic for poor and homeless women, one that provides any and all dental services, with an emphasis on cosmetic restoration.

~The Temple will establish our own network of health care providers over time, with our own payment system, one that will rival the Catholic health care network one day.

~We will start – through our educational foundation – a non-profit progressive women's firearms educational and advocacy organization, a radical feminist counterpart to the NRA. This will be a stand alone, non-sectarian group dedicated to promoting “Guns: The Other Pro-Choice Issue”. It's focus will be training women how to use firearms and to lobby for concealed carry permits for 'women at risk', erg. women being stalked, working in dangerous neighborhoods, etc.

~We will build a complex of interrelated for profit Entertainment companies, tangentially related to, but legally separate from, The Temple, to promote our Stories in the media. These will include publishing, film, music, gaming, ancillary marketing, even fashion, as The Temple will have its own Style [and a rather chic one, too].

~Through our educational foundation we will create a model for and then establish a network of primary and secondary parochial girls schools with a curriculum that emphasizes athletics, liberal arts, and hard science in equal measure. These will be open to all girls who qualify, not only to The Temple's younglings. The Precepts of The Temple would be present in the general atmosphere, but not forced upon anyone. That is counter to our teachings. The staff will be hired purely upon their professional qualifications, though it is likely that most will be individuals who support the overall concepts.

~We will separately incorporate a security company that will have two primary purposes: One, provide physical security for The Temple's various locations and for our affiliated organizations, and Two, operate an investigative arm that will do background checks, etc, and provide security on a more subtle level.

~The Temple will sponsor Girl Scout troops. These will be run much like the girl's schools in that The Temple's involvement will be apparent, and many of the activities will reflect The Temple's agenda [How many little girls would love to learn how to shoot a bow from the back of a galloping horse?] but the troops will be open to any and all girls.

~As The Temple and its Sisterhood is Transhumanist movement whose long range goals require that our Sisters ultimately evolve into Cyborg Amazons, we will establish a number of research foundations in order to actively pursue that outcome. This will include, though not be limited to, Genetics, Nano Technology, Human Augmentation, Female Repro-duction, and, of course, Cloning.

To give some idea of how this could manifest here is my now infamous essay, “The Seed Dance,” which covers the first four areas a research listed above.

“Hypothetically speaking, with the coming advent of physically implanted miniature computers and physiological maintenance nanites, it could become possible for one woman to impregnate another woman in a sexual act and vise versa. It would require focus, so accidental pregnancies would be virtually impossible, but desired pregnancies would be virtually guaranteed.

Both women would have to be ovulating, but if they have lived together for any length of time, their cycles would be in alignment. They would engage in whatever foreplay that they enjoyed most, raising their level of sexual excitement, which would facilitate the process on several levels.

When they were both 'there' - a very personal and highly subjective state - the women wound get into the Scissor Leg position. The genitals would need to be freshly dipilated to a fine degree. The vaginal/vaginal contact would establish a 'lubricant bridge', which would create a flow of nanite interaction.

The 'impregnator' or Seed Mother would then direct her physio-comp to engage a preset program whereby her nanites detach a viable egg from one of her ovaries and guide it down the fallopian tube through the uterus into the cervix and then to the vaginal entrance.

The 'impregnatee' or Womb Mother would simultaneously direct her physio-comp to engage a preset program whereby her nanites stand by to receive the Seed Mother's egg and then guide it up into her uterus to fertilize a prepared 'receptor egg' that has been moved there from one of her ovaries.

The moment of truth is the hand off of the Seed Egg from one set of nanites to the other on the lubricant bridge. Some of the Seed Mother's nanites would have to be traded to the Womb Mother. [This would also bring the concept of hardware and software compatibility to a whole new level]

The results would be known almost immediately. If the hand off was successful, fertilization is highly probable and the Womb Mother's physio-comp would tell her.

I can already hear some sneering: "Why not just have women grow penises?", though I expect a more vulgar term would be used. And I have two answers to that.

First, that basically defeats the purpose. What is being aimed for here is a female mono-gendered society, not a hermaphroditic one. The latter would be a different beast altogether for many reasons, none of which I feel compelled to elaborate upon here.

Second, at a later date, they will grow their own penises, except that these penises will be detachable bioforms engineered and grown from each woman's own DNA. Obviously, this is a more complex and sophisticated technology which will require more time to develop.

However, these detachable bioforms would recreational implements. In order to make them a tool for reproduction, women's internal workings would need to be extensively re-adapted. As I have stated above, that would defeat the purpose.

The Seed Dance described above is a mutual and equal interaction, not merely a 'depositing of seed'. The Womb Mother would be actively receptive, not a passive vessel. And it is a two way street. For the couples next daughter - egg to egg would produce only females - they could switch roles.

These realities - The Seed Dance which side steps the need for The Male in reproduction and produces only daughters - combine to create an entirely new dynamic, socially, politically, spiritually, a new Matriarchy of a type that has never existed before.

In this world, Women are Sisters and Daughters of Sisters and Mothers of Sisters. That simple fact alone would create a far more peaceful world. It is harder to oppress and kill those one perceives as ones own kin, ones own flesh and blood. That is primarily the sin of Patriarchy, of The Male who fears Loss to other Males, and that will largely disappear along with him.

These technologies - computer implants, medical nanites, egg to egg fertilization - are already under development. All that is needed to combine them to create The Seed Dance is time, money, and the will to do so.

The Temple has the will. The money is already beginning to manifest. And The Goddess will give us the time. In the interim, my Sisters, there is much work to be done. And so it is...”

Much like with the examination of The Pentavalent, it would probably be a good idea to re-read this. There are a lot of concepts here, but in order to lay the foundations of an entirely new society one must plan extensively and boldly.

Now let us examine what may be The Temple's most potent psycho-cultural 'secret weapon': The Trikona.
