Beyond Extraordinary Ep. 18: Age of Deceit 2 with Gonzo Shimura
When one hears the word alchemy, thoughts generally come to mind of a medieval apothecary or maybe an ancient mad scientist, desperately trying to find a way to turn base metals into gold. While this is the sort of romanticized version of an alchemist, there is a much darker reality behind their pursuits. This occult driven practice was at its core a pursuit to transform men into gods. And this is precisely what visual essay PA explores In his new film, Age of Deceit 2: Alchemy and the Rise of the Beast Image.
In this fascinating film, Gonz seeks to explain how our image of alchemy as a lost art has never really gone away, and that the pursuit of the Philosopher’s Stone and the elixir of life continues to be at the forefront of today’s most prominent scientific and futurist philosophies. Gonz details the trajectory of alchemy through the ages into the modern transhumanist movement, and how all of this may tie into the events spoken about in Revelation 13… “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.” (Rev 13:15)
Beyond the discussion of the film, this episode is also special because Gonz shares his with us about his life leading up to and following his coming to the Lord.
During the intro to the interview, I discuss the recent development of Age of Deceit 2 being pulled from You Tube due to a fraudulent copyright claim against it, issued by a man who seems set on making Gonz’s life miserable.
