He goes by Morgue and was on AMC’s Freakshow. His group that he’s formed is called Hyperianism. His website, [www.iamhyperian.com
] states the following.
“The goal of Hyperianism is to create a new humanity and a new Earth.
Explore the site to discover what you are, where you are, and why you are here.
Reach the next level of evolution and claim your power.”
He has a few social media pages under the name Morgen Night but that seems like another pseudonym. I personally find him difficult to contact because I did want to ask him some questions about Hyperianism before making any judgements but I’ve been watching this movement grow for awhile now but I didn’t receive a response. I feel like his video content is getting more and more “out there” and his behavior in later videos seems different than his earlier ones.

He seems to be delving into political and conspiracy theory type videos more recently but I feel like his videos come out so fast that I have a difficult time keeping up with them so I gave up. His first book is titled “The Metaphorical Suicide” which is about metaphorically “killing” yourself and creating the new “real” version of yourself. It’s not that long, easy to comprehend, and I honestly found it to be an interesting read. I haven’t read anything else by him. His videos started out easy to follow but became more and more complex and as I said, I had a hard time keeping up with his content. I’ve seen a few comments on his social media calling Hyperianism a cult and occasionally he responds by saying that it’s an “anti-cult” based on “logic and reason” and promotes thinking for yourself. So far from the content of his I’ve seen, this checks out. I know there was an issue in one of his Facebook groups (that he’s admin on but isn’t very active and it’s mostly moderated by a handful of fans/followers) where the members would get very aggressive if someone questioned or challenged an idea in his books or videos. Morgue did notice the hostility in the group eventually and posted that he didn’t approve of it and politely asked for it to stop, saying he wanted to encourage discussion, but I never really saw him participate in these discussions. He does seem to livestream a lot though so perhaps that’s where he chimes in. I can still sense a bit of hostility in some member’s comments to each other, but overall it’s not as bad as the one incident I mentioned earlier. The movement seems interesting and harmless thus far but every time I decide to try and follow it again, I just get a weird vibe from his videos. Maybe that’s what he’s going for. I find it kind of strange that I can’t seem to find much about him online, making him a bit enigma-like, in my opinion.
I will admit that I’ve been interested in various new age movements for the past decade and started hanging around my favorite new age shop and listening to speakers and took a class on divination there as a teenager and I’ve always been hyper vigilant about certain speakers or groups that I met up with there, as the first new age book that I ever picked up had a list of red flags to look out for and I’ve definitely dodged some suspicious situations. I was homeschooled and very depressed and lonely and lost as a teenager and that shop was the most socializing I normally experienced and on some level, I knew this would attract predators, my parents already were afraid of me getting roped into something cult like since they grew up in the 70s with Jonestown and the Manson family and such and they knew I felt ostracized by my peers and was very much a “free spirit” and as a teenager just being aloud to go places without adult supervision, I was determined to prove to my parents that I wasn’t going to get involved in anything dangerous, so I’ve been on the look out for signs of cultish groups or predatory guru types for over a decade now and sometimes I do feel like I’m reading too much into things because I learned what to look for so early on, and this could just be some weird guy on the internet with genuinely good intentions, but I’ve been suspicious of the Hyperian movement for at least a year now and I’m just starting to wonder if I’ve caused myself to be overly paranoid or if there’s something strange going on here. I haven’t really interacted with anyone else involved in the group, I tend to just lurk and I do have trouble making friends due to being so introverted and I have a difficult time trusting people so I can’t say what the followers are like but at a glance they mostly seem to be in their teens and early 20s, which is a fairly vulnerable age group.
I don’t know. It doesn’t seem malicious but there’s something about Morgue and Hyperianism that just feels off to me.
