Psychedelics & Shamanism: An Esoteric Manipulation of Human Culture – Featuring Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media

September 12th, 2016, The Last American Vagabond had the privilege of sitting down across the screen from veteran researcher, Jan Irvin, of Gnostic Media. With The Last American Vagabond’s recent and continued elaboration on the ancient, esoteric origins of politics and government through the Gnostic Mystery Initiations, this episode of Altered Boy Podcast represents an essential puzzle piece in understanding the evolution of Gnosticism throughout human culture, and how gnosis seems to contradictorily embody the immutable functions of Natural Law—as well as the misapplication of this Natural Law in order to subvert and guide the free will of humanity through sociocultural function.

Termed in prior work, The Last American Vagabond considers this gnostic inception of ancient politics and government for the purposes of “manufacturing the consent” of the common public, as: sociohorticulture. This could technically be called “sociocultural horticulture,” so as to imply that this is not dealing with a society of plants (whatever that would be) and instead, this term explains the tactics that the Elite are known to use to guide the public in the ways that they see fit—the same way a farmer raises his cattle or tends his crops. The esoteric mindset here, is that humanity has a natural hierarchy just as can be observed throughout nature.


It should go without saying that, not only is this an objectively incorrect understanding of Natural Law, but it is also a completely immoral usage of the understanding of Natural Law, a usage that subverts the will of the individual so conclusively that it fits traditional definitions of “black magick” quite easily.

As Jan stated in the interview, Military Intelligence simply cannot be separated from the Occult—Military Intel, Elitism, and Deep Politics/Shadow Governments are not only hidden by their very nature (the definition of “occult”), but these political concepts are and always have been knowingly founded upon the quintessential Gnostic traditions of interpreting Natural Law to subvert the intricate and naturalized social conventions of a free society—an anarchistic society.

Here’s the kicker: put simply, if the Gnostic Mysteries were government sanctioned “socio-cultural horticulture,” then psychedelic chemicals and shamanism (the philosophy of applying and using these chemicals) have been the ultimate methods with which the elite have groomed the “crops” of the common man, throughout society’s history. From Babylon, to the hieroglyphs on the walls of the Great Pyramid onward, the disturbing and untold truth of shamanism is that it has been largely—if not entirely—based on mental indoctrination and trauma-based mind control. Thus, the CIA’s Project: MKULTRA represents one of the most prominent survivals of this dark Gnostic shamanism of manufactured consent.


Lastly, this idea is not intended to demonize the ideas of Gnosis, which is the inviolable, intuitive understanding of Natural Law, or the Law of Karma. Rather, it is meant as a critical analysis of Gnosis—and where the doctrine of Gnosticism went wrong.

One cannot comment on the entire idea of the shaman throughout time and culture being a form of black magick mind control, simply because this data is yet to be compiled completely; but suffice it to say that this interview proves through source material that Gnosticism has the utmost dark intentions for shamanism—although this is likely not to be considered the case by the perpetrators, since they are likely clinical psychopaths by nature, or sociopaths at the very least.


For ninety minutes, Jan guides the listener through a complex web of shamanic, trauma-based mind control based on psychedelic chemical substance and media convention—whether this media convention be Greek plays, the psychedelic rock music of the 1960’s, or the internet, et cetera.

Is there any therapeutic value to psychedelic chemicals? Is there any altruism to be noted in the historical convention of shamanism? These are ultimately questions left to be answered by the individual, but this interview casts deep, disturbing and unwavering doubt onto the authenticity of both these subjects.

A journalist and author from Anchorage, Alaska, Anthony Tyler aims to twist the knife in both phony new-age ideals and scientific materialism by drawing attention to the rich heritage of esoteric science throughout history. Far from being “satanist,” the esoteric (i.e. occultism or comparative religion) marks the beginning of mathematics, astronomy, psychology, medicine, and even politics. Esoteric science represents a cache of little-known knowledge detailing how to decipher the human's unconscious mind--and the unconscious mind is essentially everything that the human mind is not considering at any given moment.

  1. Omg.. This article is extremely subjective. Are you writing an opinion piece or nah? Information is not evil. Nor is it “good”. Information is data and nothing more. The application of data will ultimately decide what is “good and evil” in the mind of the populace even though the terms “good and evil” should not exist. Only positive and negative forces balance the Universe. Why are you so judgy about how some view the world?

    1. If you would look at my other work, you would see that I am still an advocate for very, very specified psychedelic therapy. This article is (I hoped this was obvious but apparently not) a summary of the interview done. Again, the article is a reflection of the interview, and I was interviewing someone who was presenting their own research, and summarizing THEIR research as how I interpreted it. If you think my material is judgemental then perhaps you should look deeper into Jan Irvin and GnosticMedia instead of getting up in arms about a 1000 word article that only shares a shade of my viewpoint as a researcher

  2. so nah, i’m not writing an opinion piece. if you would read my other work you would see that the points you are making is something I have already heavily elaborated on in great detail.

  3. Trauma-based mind control… mass coercion leading to consensus building; Saul Alinsky’s lesson in Hegelian Dialectics. False flags have been the last administration’s theatre of the weak. Here’s some research into a shamanic code with a feminine countenance. It’s alot more pleasant when the subject is complicit.
