Ca a week ago I finished reading The Other Side of Midnight, so I've now read all the 8 first books of the series. I don't have that much to add to what has been said already, but I thought that The Other Side of Midnight was the author's best so far – the quality of writing and story telling was captivating. I think I'm gonna take a break now from this series and go back reading Laura's latest (half way through that).
The other side of Midnight is the best so far. Based on the hierarchy C's mentioned 4D STS to humans and variations w.r.t locations, capabilities, densities etc., I kept thinking author can't go further than last book and she kept going deep into other layers of hierarchy. This book is troubling and shocking and I have stop at some point and pick up again.

Yes, C's said much worst scenario's, but reading the novels emotionally hits. As others said, wrapper of the novel's plot line is same, but suddenly she starts spilling the beans later part of the novels, it hits us hard and make it worth the reading. This novel is troubling and shocking. I thought happy ending is little bit too simplified, which is expected. These dark races that want to survive looks as ignorant and helpless as we are on the surface despite their advantage over us. Interestingly C's said, they are completely controllable. I am not sure whether this author goes to the depth of "Jupiter Ascending" movie. She throws Inca race in between making me wonder( probably part of population they taken down and use them to control us) , this author reads C's transcripts?

I've just started The other side of Midnight, but even before doing so, I had the exact same tought. Two samples from The Russian billionnair, knowing these two books have been published in 2021. The first one:


Spoilers don't work, don't know why. Here are the two samples, so SPOLIER ALERT:

Raine: "What happens if they force us all to take the ship, or the injection [...]"
Konstantin: "They won't do that."
Raine: "Why not? If they are as evil as you say, what's to stop them?"
Konstantin: "[...] they can only harvest willing souls. Their rules say there are allowed to trick someone into saying yes, or make them so fearful that they say yes, but they must agree to their own enslavement.
[...]
Konstantin: "As long as humankind is not vigilant, they will tricked into giving their consent. Once they have that they can harvest your soul with no repercussions." (pp.265-266)

And the second one picked up after Konstantin just talked about Vanguard and Blackrock (p.266):

Raine: "If they own everything, how can we possibly win?"
Konstantin: "They want us to think there's no use fighting. They want us to give up in defeat, but the outcome is not set in stone. We are born with freedom in our bones, and that is our divine right." (p.267)


I'm very intrigued.

Edit: Adding the two samples out of Spoiler box for visiblity, as they did not show.
Edit 2: Mispealled words.

I'm in the middle of reading Seduce Me.
The fourth entry in the series. A thought occurred to me.
The soul (essence) after incarnations in such circumstances of life
like the Barrington family, can have a very difficult time dealing with ordinary life.
It may feel (through the body, the vehicle) unfit to live on this planet.
Only by observing her reactions, such as remorse when she takes advantage of others, or feeling unjust for not having enough money, etc....
and when he comes across information such as on this forum, that these are all lessons and this is roughly what the continuous journey of souls is all about, he will be able to understand this and learn.

I've finished the first three novels in the "Billionaire Banker Series. Nothing that I didn't know already, but the feeling is somehow different.

The words that Blake told Lana that they are different, even different species was very interesting. It was about psychopaths. The true psychopaths are on the top of the pyramid. The evil itself.
It was interesting to read the books with all the foreknowledge that I have from this forum, Laura's books, Cs materials, and recommended books. There were a lot of A-HA moments but with a feeling of sadness deep inside me. The reading was quick but heavy.

The use of sexual abuse to program a person was also one of those Aha heavy and sad moments while reading.

These people don't need money. They already have or can have everything that money can buy. They are not interested in money. They like power and control. Look just at those pornographic scenes in the books. Domination, submission, humiliation, and control, in sex scenes, was something that Blake wanted and enjoyed.
At the end of the third book, Blake said: " Own nothing, control everything".

The hidden rulers of this reality are evil. It is very interesting to see how they can put on their mask and look like lovely, intelligent aristocrats in the public. The scene with Blake's brother Markus in the restaurant is a good example.
They keep their masks in from of the public eye but are real evil inside.

Their eyes are almost black and empty, as the Author is describing the Blake family members. Eyres are windows for the souls, and their eyes are empty. They are just empty shells, or their souls are so dark that it is frightening.

And there is Lana as totally opposite character from Blake and his family. I think it is a good representation of a young woman falling in love with a psychopath. The author is describing what she feels when she is near him.

Late in the story, Blake is represented as the "sleeping beauty" who is waking up from a dark and emotionless world where the rulers of this reality leave into a world where he cares for someone, where he feels remorse, where he feels love.

Overall, it was a good read, but I would say a heavy and sad " aftertaste " in my mind. This reading project lets you not just know about these facts, but also feel them, and it is not a pleasant experience.

Continuing with the rest of the book in this series and then going back to Regence Romantic novels to clear that bad aftertaste in my mind.

I finished reading a series of Dark Novels at the end of August. I can say that I was pretty much immersed in these stories. It's hard to describe it in words, but it seems that they had some strange influence on me and my life. Although maybe this is a pure coincidence or just my inventions?! August dragged me into a real maelstrom of unusual events, strange disturbing dreams warning of dangers, equally strange meetings with unpleasant people. 🌪️I felt a flood of information, feelings, premonitions that came true and were justified. Most often, these were disturbing, warning about the danger of feelings-thoughts. Thanks to them, I was vigilant in the family's life problems that arose, and so far everything has ended well. It turned out that I can quite trust my inner instinct. And it was not just intuition or logic, but an almost knocking down wave of premonitions and at the same time the knowledge that bad things are happening. It's hard to describe, but I didn't have it so strongly and clearly before.

But there were also pleasant moments. The day when I read the story of Rocco and Autumn was very unusual. At first I was cold. Then came tears of pain and empathy. And by the evening, peace and a special bright perception of the world came. All around the sounds, smells and colors suddenly became bright and saturated. I was just sitting on a swing in the garden, sewing holes in a tent torn by the wind, and I felt some inner fullness and peace. Maybe I imagined it all. But the next day, the world became normal. Which is also not bad! :-)

Now in September, everything around and emotions inside seem to have subsided, everything has calmed down. I went back to reading the Bedwin Saga and it does work, but it is softer.

Thank you to Laura for such an interesting find and to everyone who wrote their impressions!:flowers:

I've just finished reading the Billionaire Banker Series, (first 5 books) what an eye opener! Once again Laura has hit a bullseye, holy crow, this series is really spelling it ALL out. In some ways I found it difficult, a lot of it is just sickening, but I can see that it is a necessary read. Even though I thought I knew how depraved and ugly the rulers of this world were, I now know it in a different and much stronger way. It's been mentioned and I agree, something about getting attached to the characters and their story brings it all home in a much more focused way. It did seem like there was two completely different stories going on at times, the graphic sex scenes which took up a great deal of the books,( I skimmed through some of that after a while) and the actual information which was quite concise and to the point. The world of the elite is truly an ugly, dark bottomless pit (despite all their wealth and power) and that these people run the world and have for eons, is mind boggling even despite already knowing all this at least to some extent.

A great weariness came over me at times reading this, seeing the reality of how this world really is. Who would want to be here knowing all this? It definitely does make you feel completely done with 3D.

It is however, comforting to know that there are enlightened individuals as the C's said sharing these ugly truths, that they are getting this out under the radar in such a clever way. It would be very interesting to know more about these individuals and how they have gathered all this insider information.

I was reading this Matthew Ehret article about behaviourism and technocracy, and it struck me that these Consortium novels are an in-situ exploration of the two-tier society envisioned by crusty old technocratic dudes like Bertrand Russell and Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Russell laid out his grim worldview of a master/slave dominated order in the following terms:

“The scientific rulers will provide one kind of education for ordinary men and women and another for those who are to become holders of scientific power. Ordinary men and women will be expected to be docile, industrious, punctual, thoughtless and contented. Of these qualities, probably contentment will be considered the most important. In order to produce it, all the researchers of psycho-analysis, behaviorism and biochemistry will be brought into play… all the boys and girls will learn from an early age to be what is called “cooperative” i.e.: to do exactly what every body else is doing. Initiative will be discouraged in these children, and insubordination, without being punished will be scientifically trained out of them.”

For the elites in Russell’s dystopic world, a different role was envisioned:

Except for the one matter of loyalty to the world state and to their own order, members of the governing class will be encouraged to be adventurous, and full of initiative. It will be recognized that it is their business to improve scientific techniques and to keep the manual workers contented by means of continual new amusements”.

I can't help but think that it's looking like the splitting of humans into two different species. Literally - not figuratively. On the one hand, you have a deliberate dumbing-down of the majority (slaves), and an acceleration of capacity for the privileged few (the masters). And this bifurcation of human potential is intentional. This is a key point the novels have brought home for me.

Is most human life is 'naturally' nasty, brutish and short? And are our minds 'by default' baroque, contradictory, and morose? Maybe - but only after the humans 'went for the gold' during The Fall. In more recent times, The Fall continues to repeat itself in each human life, through careful aeons of social engineering.

Most of us humans on the BBM live in a world of manufactured lack as the abundance of this world is siphoned up by those living at the apex. So the class contrast in the books is jaw-dropping, in part because it paints a living picture of words of something that's so very real, and goes way back in time to The Fall. And the plot generally has the starting point of women protagonists in poverty (slaves), in comparison to the unimaginable wealth and power of the men (masters). This aspect of the narrative structure complements the Male Dominator God ascendant/destitution of Mother Goddess worship and the 'murdering of the feminine' mentioned in The Wave.

But although the women in the books are generally in dire straits, the the usual 'damsel in distress' trope is given a more modern twist. It's more like the damsels and the gentlemen save each other. They help to set each other free, to the extent that they are able. And love is not slaves overthrowing the masters in these books. It's not a global revolution. It is an intimate, interpersonal revelation.

The men are in significant distress, too - warped by their power, or the power they were initiated into. In this way, Le Carre is offering up a warning about the 'more, more, more' cultural logic that functions to hypnotize people into thirsting after power, money, fame, etc. 'More' is a hunger - the hunger of the Predator mind. And it is very interesting to see how Rocco dealt with his own version of this hunger - his particularly long and painful form of 'fasting'.

So in these series, Le Carre takes aim at this technocratic master/slave distinction, with love as the system-buster. It's all still quite mysterious to me. And I still don't really understand love - I think it's probably one of those concepts like time or space... very hard to conceptualize, let alone verbalize.

It's sort of like a higher order of energy (higher than 4D STS) that is called in by the Yin-Yang dynamism and starts correcting imbalances of the two protagonist Souls (often quite painfully) who are asking for it on some level. And the other Souls around them feel the effects. It's like a force from 'outside of time' shows up and sparks off an explosion of creativity, change and healing. Tantrums and all.

Anyways, Love (whatever it may be) dissolves or attacks or shrugs off the two-tier master/slave distinctions (archetypes) set up by the current would-be masters of the planet. Without this idée fixe, the technocracy would have no foundation. So to my eye, the books like these are fighting the good fight on the level of information. Particularly when I think about these characters, and the dynamics at play in these novels, as fractals of divine archetypes or Faces of God. @Mike made such a good post about this recently.

So Le Carre sure has some good aim. By reading and understanding these stories, I've been given an emotionally-real 'lay of the land', but also a possible means of moving through the horrors this place, like a kinda 'map through the chaos'. Love in this sense is ALSO kinda like a road through very narrow, very dangerous, very confusing time. With these books, Le Carre's aim (love vs. technocracy) opens up the possibility for significant human transformation, specifically in this technocratic transhuman moment. Despite how totally nuts the whole planet looks right now.

I'm halfway through Loves Sacrifice.
I never would have thought before that this type of reading could carry so much information and help with understanding.
When Blacke's mother talked about bloodlines I understood that they were needed so that certain souls could "marry genetics".
Something I read in sessions and tried to understand.
Now also the preparation of physical bodies as containers for some beings from other densities, dimensions, becomes obvious to me.
"The soul marries genetics."
