Hidden history & religion amongst other things.




…a.k.a. Schism206.


My name is Michael Joseph. I’m probably most known on the interwebs for research relating to esoteric symbolism and its influence upon society. Beginning in the fall of 2018 I gradually (and reluctantly at first) returned to Roman Catholicism, quite likely to the chagrin of those who'd been previously following the various Schism206 productions. So it goes…


You can find the old Schism206 content in fresh new formats here, by joining the Initiate members for only $12 per year ($1 p/month). Or, you can join the Adept members for $6 p/month or $72 p/year which includes a whole lot more. Click here for the benefits of each. There is an audio-only plan available @ Podbean for $30 p/year ($2.50 per month). There are free samples of members content too.


Research aside, there's content for a variety of endeavors such as musician (hence the site's namesake), voice acting, audiobook narration, etc. Though my original musical pursuits came to an abrupt end around 2014, I do have plans to put out original music on this site whenever vocals get completed (could be a while if I'm honest). I also do voice acting and singing for my friend Mike's X-RL7 Cyberpunk animation series. Music/voice productions can be found here.


I offer natal chart readings from the lens of Catholicism. Despite being a bit 'controversial,' there are many misconceptions about the Catholic Church's positions on astrology. Everything I do is under the umbrella of Thomas Aquinas' writings on the topic, and thus is perfectly licit in this context. If you are interested, please see the Astrologia section of this site for more information.


There are other miscellaneous resources on the website. Use the 'Resources' tab to explore (on main navigation bar).

Though this site is more 'off the radar' now, we're still churning out new content. Regardless, joining means you're part of a secret underground network, only known to a 'select few.' Welcome to the 1st degree of initiation into the ways of the square. You'll get the joke soon enough.
