Sáncte Míchael Archángele, defénde nos in proélio, cóntra nequitiam et insídias diabólica estou præsídium.  Ímperet ílio Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps militiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde.  Ámen.




…a.k.a. Schism206.

Greetings, my name is Michael Joseph and I’m probably most known on the interwebs for research that relates to esoteric symbolism and its influence upon society. A few years ago I returned––albeit gradually and at first reluctantly––to the Roman Catholic Church. Which was likely to the chagrin of a majority of those who had previously followed the "B.C. era" content on the Schism206 channel. C'est la vie.


You can find the older Schism206 content––in fresh, new formats––here by joining the Initiate members plan for only $1 per month (the plan itself being $12 per year). Or you can join the Adept members plan for only $6 per month. Click here for information on the benefits of both. An audio-only plan can be found @ Podbean for $30 per year ($2.50 per month).


Along with research, I also have a variety of lesser roles such as musician, voice actor, audiobook narrator, etc. ; and this is partly the reason for the sites namesake. Though my original musical endeavors came to an abrupt end around 2014, I do have plans to put original music on this site whenever my vocals are completed. I also do voice acting and some singing for a friend, Mike Evans. I make the occasional appearance in his X-RL7 Cyberpunk animation series. All music/voice productions can be found here.


I also offer astrological readings from the lens of Catholicism. Despite the misconceptions on the context of its condemnations, everything I do is under the umbrella of Thomas Aquinas's views on the topic. If interested, please see the Astrologia section of this site for additional information.  The rate is $36 per Skype hour (rates flexible for multiple sessions). If someone is coming out of a "New Age" type mindset, and interesting or converting/returning to Catholicism, I'm happy to extend sessions to chat about it––no additional cost.


And finally, there are a number of other miscellaneous resources on the website as well. Use the Free Content tab on the website navigation bar to explore.


Welcome to the 1st degree of initiation into the ways of the square. You'll get the joke soon enough.
