The Pharmacratic Inquisition 2007 (DVD)

Andrew Rutajit: (co-Producer, co-Author, Editor, Graphic Design, Music)

This DVD is the video companion for the book, AstroTheology & Shamanism.

Thousands of years ago, in the pre monarchic era, sacred plants and other entheogenic substances where politically correct and highly respected for their ability to bring forth the divine, Yahweh, God, The Great Spirit, etc., by the many cultures who used them. Often the entire tribe or community would partake in the entheogenic rites and rituals. These rites were often used in initiation into adulthood, for healing, to help guide the community in the decision process, and to bring the direct religious experience to anyone seeking it. In the pre literate world, the knowledge of psychedelic sacraments, as well as fertility rites and astronomical knowledge surrounding the sun, stars, and zodiac, known as astrotheology, were anthropomorphized into a character or a deity; consequently, their stories and practices could easily be passed down for generations. Weather changes over millenniums caused environmental changes that altered the available foods and plant sacraments available in the local vicinity. If a tribe lost its shamanic El-der (El – God), all of the tribe’s knowledge of their plant sacraments as well as astronomical knowledge would be lost. The Church’s inquisitions extracted this sacred knowledge from the local Shamans who were then exterminated…It is time to recognize the fact that this Pharmacratic Inquisition is still intact and destroy it.

The Aquarius Initiation (2002 Version of the Pharmacratic Inquisition)

Written, produced and directed by Andrew Rutajit.

A message from Andrew Rutajit:

I know this video contains some errors; it’s humbling for me to watch this. However, I’m releasing this video the way I originally made it as part of an online autobiography. I created this video in late 2002 when I founded Gnostic Media. This video was the first step in what I still refer to as “The Aquarius Initiation” and it is the reason I created To my knowledge, prior to the completion of this video in 2003, no one was combining the research of Astrotheology with Shamanism in an attempt to explore the larger picture of modern-day religion.

August 2004 from
“Gnostic Media produces and distributes media for the Age of Enlightenment. Gnostic Media is owned and operated by Andrew Rutajit. Andrew believes that the year 2004 is the fourth year of a 12-year initiation that began on May 5th, 2000 and ends on the winter solstice of 2012. Andrew coined the term “Aquarius Initiation” to describe these 12 years. This Aquarius Initiation is the reason Gnostic Media came into existence.”

Again, I understand there are some errors in this video and I understand that I sound kind of young and nervous by mispronouncing simple words (e.g.Logitech – LOL). Please go easy on me. I’ve come a long way in a decade and so has my research. I made this video all by myself, long before I met Jan Irvin and years before I coauthored Astrotheology & Shamanism with him.

When I first met Jan Irvin, I sent a VHS copy of this very video to him. As primitive as it is, this video would quickly become the framework for my first (three-hour) lecture with Jan titled, “The Pharmacratic Inquisition – Full Length Lecture” (Arlington, Texas – March 2004). In this lecture, he and I reenacted this video, often word for word and entirely slide by slide. Soon, a transcript of a lecture based on this video would become the preliminary foundation for the book “Astrotheology & Shamanism: Unveiling the Law of Duality in Christianity and other Religions” as well as the framework for the DVD, “The Pharmacratic Inquisition DVD”. If you are a fan of this book or DVD, you may enjoy the video that started it all.

To this very day, I base my lectures upon this video’s primary theme. For a more personal version, I welcome you to attend one of my lectures. For booking, please contact me via Facebook.

Divine Moments of Truth with Joe Rogan
Andrew Rutajit: Producer, Editor

For this video, I remixed one of my favorite Shpongle songs and overlaid a Joe Rogan radio interview for the voice track. This was made with Joe Rogan’s permission but I never got a reply from the band. As a result, their music was used without permission. I now make my own music. A short description of this video follows:Joe Rogan was a guest on Jim Breuer’s Sirius radio show where he discussed DMT, dreams, and the role humans play on this planet. Joe says, “It’s easily the weirdest interview I’ve ever done, and definitely the most interesting.” Words by Joe Rogan Music by Shpongle Music Remixed & Visuals added by Andrew Rutajit

Gnostic Media – Pharmacratic Inquisition Preview

Andrew Rutajit: Director, co-Producer, Editor

This is a video montage for the Pharmacratic Inquisition video, set to the music of “Leading” by the band Revolve. This video was created to generate some interest and drive some people to the free Pharmacratic Inquisition 2004 video. The full length video is quite long so I made this music video as a way to artistically summarize the actual lecture.

Our Lady of Light

Andrew Rutajit: Producer, Director, Author, Editor, Music

This was my first attempt at a “viral video.” I grabbed one of my essays from my website, reworded it a little bit, read it into my microphone, and edited some video together. I then created and added a music track and uploaded it to the internet. It was easier than I expected and it was getting more attention than I had expected…so I called Jan and told him that we should do one of these short videos together.

Sexual Symbolism in Religion

Andrew Rutajit: co-Producer, co-Author, Editor, Music

Jan and I chose the topic of sexual symbolism for our first (and last) joint effort on a short video project. The script for this video was taken directly from “The Vestibule” with a few minor additions by Irvin. I then gathered some of my favorite Nine Inch Nails music and made a remix for this video. I’ve been told by some that the music very good and by others that it is “too creepy”. I kinda like it.
