Philosophically, in my life I have listened to all sides of the discussion of human materialism, material societies, hyper material societies, material-less societies, the arguments back and forth about the nature of materialism. Regardless of the outcome, regardless of the political derivatives, the capitalist, communist, socialist, whatever, it seems so fascinating to me that the burden is placed on us. The assumption is that materiality is somehow an obsessive burden. It appears that way in our world. We are in a world that survives only through materialism. If you are a bioform, it’s not possible to do it any other way. It is a material plane, we are material forms, we need material to survive, and on and on.
But again, the assumption is that that's about us. That somehow it is our deep motivation, that we are driven to succeed on the material plane—it is not true. As a matter of fact, since 1781, none of those beings born that are Right sided are designed to be material, none of them are designed to be strategic in the way in which they operate on the material plane. It's not true that this is what we are—this is what the Penta is.
The Penta is only interested in one thing: material. And then you understand why it's the bedrock of our programming. The moment that you have young, they have to be cared for. The species will not survive, there will be no evolutionary process. The first business is the family. The first business is shelter, food, clothing, all of it in industry, all of it in a single direction, the direction of survival.
And Pentas are very efficient if they're functional. They're incredibly efficient because there is no this or that, there is just one drive moving them forward. Every piece of energy, every aspect of what the frequency of this trans-auric entity is, is all focused in one direction. In fact, this is the great weakness of the transpersonal. Their weakness is our strength.

We are all born into Pentas, we go to school in them, we work in them – Penta is very much a part of the nature of being. The trans-auric form is something that almost smacks of science fiction until you...
The reality is the world is dominated by trans-auric forms. Most of the things we think are ugly in human beings aren’t in your personal chart, have never been in your personal chart. But they come alive in trans-auric forms.
It’s an amazing thing about the nature of human violence. It was one of the things in my own studies that I’ve tried to look at and see and discover many themes in the mechanics.
The whole thing to understand about the 14th Gate is that it carries within it all of the material potential of humanity, and it is the material potential of humanity in the sense that we understand it as energy, as money, as the material way, as the material path in life.
