"Shadow Tech is an alchemical exploration into the human shadow. Among several models discussed, destructive cultural drives are related to viruses and parasites in biology and information systems. Cyclical destructive behavior is attributed to the "victim-victor cycle". Culture and mind are shown to be organic operating systems which act as mediums for viral transmission of shadow energies. The authors share their own experiences and alchemical philosophy, as well as effective methods for balancing repressed destructive energies." What's next for those who have taken the "Red Pill"? The authors have found alchemical shadow work to be a powerful tool for balancing their internal states and the raising of their consciousness. The biggest battle for the minds of humanity is not waged "out there" - it's waged inside the psychic states of every human being.
