Whatever's and why's



I am overcome with studies in the whatever’s of everything and the why’s of whatever. As founder of Cryptic Veil and numerous other projects, I have poured endless hours integrating my hopeful studies into the music that I hold dear. We live on the planet hell... as little gods on the throne of graves, ever believing we are alive and fully in control. It is a paradox, a dichotomous role, a deception and yet each is deeply entrenched in its development and purpose… but really, who cares?? Not many. It’s not important, unless it is. Don’t take me too seriously. Lose yourself in the music, if it is your thing, if only for the hell of it. I am simply a musician come to serve the rock-n-metal movers of the satanic planet. Welcome to hell. We've all been here a very long time. It is home for now.

It stands right in us… the devil, the dragon, the beast, the universe, hell, and yet few are able to see, and the deeper you go, less are the listeners, for the deception is powerful, intentional, and inevitable… irony at its best.


Drop an object. As space is forever divided, it never really makes contact; thus, time is not what we believe. The solution is illusion.


The Qliphoth, Qelippot or Klippot - (Heb.) literally peels, shells or husks, from singular: qliphah 'husk' [The Kabbalah or, The Religious Philosophy of the Hebrews Adolphe Franck translated by I. Sossnitz (1926): Relation of The Kabbalah to Christianity page 279] According to Israel Regardie, the qlipothic tree consists of 10 spheres in opposition to the sephiroth on the Tree of Life. These are also referred to as the "evil twins" and the "Evil Demons of Matter and the Shells of the Dead." According to me, whatever value that carries... The Qlippoth is hell. It is the dead. We all live here.


  • "Every cubic centimeter of empty space contains more energy than the total energy of all the matter in the known universe!"
  • "...Matter does not exist independently from the sea, from so-called empty space. It is a part of space."
"In a sense, the observer is the observed. The observer is also the measuring device, the experimental results, the laboratory, and the breeze that blows outside the laboratory..." (The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot, p 49-51)
