Decolonization as envisioned by the United Nations is (in real effect) little more than a self-serving Western propaganda ploy; assuaging ego where there is in fact little wider social consciousness of what (and what has not) been accomplished. To achieve de facto (authentic) decolonization, to begin, this should require the decolonization of the psyche of those ‘indigenous’ populations educated into Western way of thinking. This would be no mean task!

When the colonizing powers ‘withdrew’ and ‘lip-serviced’ (should sound like political fellatio) ‘the right of self determination of peoples’ … they left intact unnatural colonial borders that in any case DID NOT respect the purported right of self-determination, rather put in place multiple Western infected national psyches within so-called ‘indigenous’ leadership determined to (more often than not) behave like Whitemen (Western European mentality.) This has further created numerous cases of social friction across the globe, particularly concerning so-called ‘minorities.’

The related ‘meme of democracy’ has accomplished the following few examples of too many examples to list in one short article:

The largest stateless ‘minority’ in the world (5,000,000 compared to ‘sovereign’ Montenegro’s 500,000), that is the Kurds, are in (varying degrees of) conflict with Iran, Iraq, Syria and (not least) Turkey, due to persisting colonial borders. This leaves the Kurd population open (across several vectors) to murderous geopolitical (read intelligence agency) manipulations in endless iterations (most recently by the USA & Israel.)

In the so-called ‘international law’ (a Western developed concept) Azerbaijan is allowed an Azerbaijani majority exclave, Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, separated by the territory of Armenia, but Armenia is NOT allowed an Armenian majority exclave, Nagorno-Karabakh, separated by the territory of Azerbaijan. Common sense calls this hypocrisy. Common people adhere to common sense and the Armenian common sense is cynically exploited in Ottoman imperial style geopolitical machinations:

So, what would be the point of common sense (a gift of our creator) in the view of those who propose to rule us? I doubt they could answer this question in any sensible (read honest) way for the fact there is no sensible or (especially) altruistic justification of the preceding. Any honest answer would have to take in account incompetence, greed & political-cultural narcissism (imperial arrogance) often prohibits the de facto right of self determination of peoples, any pretensions of decolonization at the United Nations notwithstanding.

In light of the preceding, just suppose (a laughable fantasy) the West were to take up Russia on an offer to repeat the plebiscite in Crimea with international observers; a plebiscite is the most democratic of all democratic principles. The obvious outcome would be (and why the ‘democratic’ West would never agree to this proposition) Crimeans would overwhelmingly (again) exercise their right of self determination to join the Russian Federation. Furthermore, the whole (majority ethnic Russian) East of Ukraine might then demand equal right to determine its own future and wellah, suddenly Putin’s Russian borders extend West to the Dnieper River. The Western states insistence Crimea remain a part of Ukraine is a case of the West maintaining a stance of ‘democracy for me, but not for thee.’

Meanwhile, the crude Spanish judicial system (dominated by judges aligned with the Popular Party, a political legacy of Franco) has jailed and continues to bring to trial those Catalan separatists who dared do what? They held a plebiscite (that most democratic of all democratic principles) to separate Catalonia from Spain (a state that has historically treated the Catalans as lackeys only fit to lick the Spanish boot.)

To keep this short, we’ll jump to Kosovo; where the Western states (NATO & the EU) has determined Serbia is not fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Albanians) on their own territory but the now purported (by the West) independent Kosovo is fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Serbs.) Never mind the inconvenient fact that recent Kosovo ‘leaders’ are being arrested and delivered to international tribunal for crimes against ethnic Serbs (includes organ harvesting), also not to mention the 250,000 Serbs driven from Kosovo in an ethnic cleansing pogrom following the NATO bombing of Serbia. Hey! Isn’t that just the sort of act the bombing was supposed to stop? NATO ‘just allowed’ that to happen when they’d grabbed control? Huh. Maybe that Albanian ‘majority’ wasn’t statistically big enough to justify an independent Kosovo (and secure Kosovo a ‘right’ to host Camp Bondsteel.)

All of this follows on a few historical facts overlooked by the Western propaganda machine; Eastern Orthodoxy’s majority Serbian population in the region of Srpska Krajina recently (90s Balkan Wars) ethnically cleansed from Catholic Croatia by “Operation Storm” (never mind the Serbs have been made the boogeyman for everything that went wrong with the breakup of Yugoslavia), as well the fact unnatural ethnic borders have been enforced in relation to Republik Srpska, ensuring there will be ongoing tensions within Bosnia on the border of Serbia and not least, the remnant Serb majority region in the North of Kosovo is denied their right of self determination to join with Serbia, ensuring perpetual inter-ethnic conflict that serves only to weaken the institutions of state via ongoing radicalization of both populations, Orthodox Christian Serb and Muslim Albanian. Europe couldn’t do a better job of promoting a war of civilizations if it had actually tried, if one were to presume it is mere incompetence derived from ego-narcissism has birthed this circumstance into the present. But maybe it is more than that, a weakened state with artificial borders is ‘low hanging fruit’ posing possibility of consolidating control over a region culturally tied to Russia (as well historically coveted by the Catholic headquarters at Rome.)

Finally, it must be noted that, similar to the Sioux Indians had founded their culture upon a spiritual relationship to the Black Hills of South Dakota from which they had been expelled, Serbia’s relationship to “Old Serbia” (Kosovo) is little different; but imperial ambition had seen the Serbs ethnically cleansed by the Albanians on multiple occasions, first under the ‘patronage’ of the Ottoman Turks, then the Albanians were backed in further pursuing pogroms against Serbs by the fascist Axis powers of World War II (similar to Croatian Ustasha persecution of Serbs during the war) and finally a coup de grace of sorts was delivered by communism under Tito, who forbade ethnic Serbs to return to their homes in Kosovo following 1945. [1]

The epilogue to all of this would be the colonizing of Serbia by the European Union at the point of a gun:

Posted on the 1,628th anniversary of Theodosius of Rome passing legislation prohibiting all pagan worship in the empire –

The letter this essay introduces, goes to the subject of the differing social psychology of the Orthodox and Western Christian worlds; where perceptions are impacted by the actual and imagined actions of others.

The Orthodox world does (in this reporter’s estimation) extend a much greater trust to those adversaries it must negotiate with; for the simple fact of a principle of ‘unity’ or perhaps better said, a lesser focus on the individual with a greater focus on the larger social good. This primacy of a consolidated belief that contracts (say what you mean and mean what you say) will be honestly negotiated and should honored stems from a very different perception of this world than that of the West in general. This likely stems from an ‘incomplete split’ of the Orthodox psyche where…

[Orthodox priest/scientist/inventor] “Florenskii’s theology reflected a complex, nuanced monism and cosmological integrality. Vseedinstvo [complete unity] was everywhere he looked. The “diversity of the universe, enclosed in unity, indicates a united, free, creative Will.” The source of Truth is unity: “If there is Truth, then it is real rationality and rational reality; it is finite infinity and infinite finiteness, or, – to put it mathematically, – actual infinity; infinite, conceivable as an integral Unity, as a single, complete Subject in itself.” Truth, Good, and Beauty are metaphysically one process, originating from one source: God. For Florenskii, Truth (Istina), defined as action serving God or others, leads to unity, and sin and the absence of truth lead to disunity. Anthropocentric and egoistic action goes against God and destroys unity: “Self-affirmation of the personality, its opposition to God is the source of fragmentation, disintegration of the personality, impoverishment of its inner life; and only love, yes to a certain degree, again brings the personality into unity.” All love – plutonic, familial, and sexual – comes from God. Sin causes the “soul to lose its substantive unity.” “Chastity is simplicity, that is organic unity, or, again, integrity of the personality.” Perversion and an absence of shame are “duality”, “non-unity, non-integrality.” At the same time, sin also has unity if only imaginary in nature: “Sin is unstable in itself. The unity of impurity is imaginary, and the illusory nature of this false unity is revealed as soon as it is forced to come face to face with Good. Uncleanness is one – as long as there is no Pure One, but just the approach of the Pure throws off the mask of unity from it (uncleanness).” “The providence of God and the freedom of creation, being antonyms, constitute one dogma – the dogma of God’s love for creation, which has its basis in the idea of ​​God-Love, that is, of the Divine Trinity.” Bringing reason back in, seemingly, Florenskii regards the study of the “unity of creation” as “the precondition for science.”” [1]

The difference to the Western Christian is stark; where “the dogma of God’s love for creation” is practically unknown & unheard of, rather the rationalized individual’s freedom to plunder (subliminally derived from “the Earth is cursed for thy sake” of Genesis) that has transformed into ‘prosperity gospel’ is emphasized. Indeed, in the annals of the USA, were one to look for a similarity to the unity of Florenskii’s thinking, one should step out of the Western Christian experience to find it; in the Deism of Thomas Paine:

“…in Deism our reason and our belief become happily united. The wonderful structure of the universe, and everything we behold in the system of the creation, prove to us, far better than books can do, the existence of a God, and at the same time proclaim His attributes. It is by the exercise of our reason that we are enabled to contemplate God in His works, and imitate Him in His ways. When we see His care and goodness extended over all His creatures, it teaches us our duty toward each other, while it calls forth our gratitude to Him”

In fact the American Christian nearly universally, ungratefully, demonized and rejected Paine, the philosopher previously credited for America’s success in acquiring independence by motivating the populace to noble thoughts, for his essay “Of The Religion of Deism Compared With the Christian Religion”, from which the preceding paragraph is taken.

Should it, now, surprise anyone, when it is posited the social psychology of Eastern and Western Christianity is fundamentally different? When the Westerner speaks out both sides of his mouth, the typical Easterner can only read one side or the other; when meeting with outstretched hand to greet, the Westerner’s first instinct is to look for the other hand, to discover whether it conceals a knife destined to one’s back; whereas the Easterner takes the outstretched hand as a gesture that should only be met with sincerity, without duplicity. When East meets West, the West takes advantage reflected in the Western cynical folk wisdom “it was like taking candy from a baby.” This is what Russia’s Yeltsen experienced and it is what Russia’s Putin nearly experienced. Now it is Serbia’s experience.

Putin, over the course of his first seven years, extended his hand on multiple occasions, but was met on every occasion with a middle finger or a knife. It was only in his 2007 speech at Munich, Putin stated ‘enough is enough.’ Seven years is a long time to learn the Western geopolitic does not respect its’ agreements and in every interaction where there are not outright insults when rejecting sincerely offered partnership, there will be a concealed knife. [2]

In relation to his unswerving support for Alexandar Vucic, who is in process of surrendering Kosovo with what amounts to negotiating a quit-claim deed concerning the Serbian territory at the international level, the Patriarch appears to upholding contradictions, unless he’d not been presented the facts in a fully informed way. The unkind (Western perception) would be (a subverted monastic mentality) the Patriarch is complicit in the proposed crimes of Vucic but what it actually is, is an inability to comprehend a Serbian president would blatantly lie to the people and the head of Serbia’s Orthodox church, however this thought has two possible tracks; accounting for the possibility Vucic would lie to himself, in Western psychology this is called a “denial mechanism” (which carries the same practical outcome.) This observation derives from, prima facie, conflicting statements of Serbia’s Patriarch:

“”For eight years I have been listening about Vučić’s preparing to betray Kosovo”

“He [the Patriarch] also asked if it made sense to “convict a man for something he did not do, just because some think he will do it.”

“”Vucic has tackled the numerous problems of Kosovo. He has shown himself to be a responsible statesman on many national issues. The citizens gave their opinion on his work in the elections,” [Serbian Patriarch] Irinej told Vecernje Novosti.

“He added that he thinks that Serbs and Albanians should be left to agree on everything on their own without imposing a “solution” in favor of only one side. “In that respect, the United States can play a great and historical role,” the patriarch said” [3]

Clearly the Patriarch does not grasp the duplicitous nature of the USA, also he does not grasp the entire affair Vucic is negotiating with the Americans and Europe has to do with surrendering Serbia’s sovereignty over Kosovo; and if Vucic himself were to claim he was not cognizant of what he is signing away, it should defy belief. Moreover, the Serbian Orthodox position is clarified at the official Serbian Orthodox Church website:

“His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch has said today that the only agreement that the Serbian Orthodox Church accepts is the one in which Kosovo is part of Serbia.

“”That is absolutely the position of the Church, and nothing has changed there. We will still see in which direction the negotiations between the Serbian and Albanian sides are going, we are still getting to know the matter, “said Patriarch Irinej, commenting on the negotiations that took place between Belgrade and Pristina in the previous days” [4]

This could be aggravated by the possibility Vucic himself is not fully informed as to the implications of what he had done (signed the so-called ‘economic normalization’ agreement) in a context of international law. Another practical outcome is (the fact) Vucic has violated the ‘Kosovo clause’ of the Serbian constitution (whether he realizes this or not.) However international law very likely won’t concern itself with this ‘domestic matter’ but will examine the facts of what the duly elected/appointed Serbian officials have conducted in matters of international relations only.

Finally, there is the possibility of information provided to the Patriarch is culled or otherwise curtailed or presented in such a way as to deceive and ultimately shape his perception away from the holistic (aggregate) facts (per Catholic or blackmailed or bought agents of influence within the church.)

But overall, the greatest deficiency is the differing social psychology, where the Eastern perception cannot easily or fluently grasp the depth of the Western duplicity. This should likely be very true for the Patriarch. A kinder interpretation would extend this naivety to Vucic but if this were the case, it should demonstrate his advisors had failed him at every level.

How the social psychology plays out with the majority of Serbians supporting Vucic is profoundly different to that of the Western democratic tradition; Serbia, very similar to Russia, had precisely ZERO Western democratic tradition prior the end of the Twentieth Century and in fact both peoples are conditioned to authoritarian regimes based in a principled unity, this is literally recorded into the Serbian genetic memory. Vucic behaves as a king, and the Serbian people behave as though Vucic were indeed a king. It is ingrained in the DNA. When Vucic appoints ministers, they behave as Dukes & Lords and the people largely accept this. The Russians are lucky, their Tsar Putin is an enlightened despot with the best interests of the Russian people at the core of his being. He keeps his Dukes & Lords on a leash, they cannot loot Russia with impunity, that door of opportunity for the most ill behaved oligarchs (Dukes & Lords) was slammed shut in the year 2000. Putin the man understands his people’s psychology and he has played the (fraught with danger) intrigues of court quite well. Meanwhile, Serbia cannot afford a King Yeltsin; Yeltsin did not, most likely actually could not, grasp the depth of the Western evil that had extended its’ hand to him, and his Dukes & Lords possessed no self restraint. The West could not swallow & digest Russia quickly enough to get away with it, the proposed feast was too large. The necessity of Serbia finding competent leadership is even more compelling; as Western corporate neo-colonialism aggressively moves to swallow & digest what it actually fears in a paradox of subliminal psychology; the unity principle in Orthodoxy opposed to individualism.

“Revelation” in real time has been noted on many occasions in the simple, uneducated Orthodox Serb villager, as opposed to the perfectly psychotic ‘visions’ (manipulations) of the mass psychology in Western Christianity.

In respect to this, it should be noted the Orthodox (unlike Rome) did not burn alive everyone daring to express the intuitive intelligence resembling the oracles of paganism. In the West, the genetic memory (potential) indicative of intuitive skill born of the Universe’s unity principle had been largely stamped out. The resultant Western ‘split’ became irrevocable; beyond the Heavens and Earth, this split separated the hemispheres of the human brain to the micro-level, and points to a final, literal, dis-integration.

The ultimate fallacy of this Cartesian-Platonic ‘objective’ reality (one example only) is demonstrated in the inability of the Western scientist to grasp the simple progression of the events that had shaped him; beginning with a world of ‘unity intelligence’ denied by Plato, Plato’s adoption by Western Christianity and the consequent necessary schism that had to manifest with Plato’s uncompromising divorce of intuitive intelligence from ‘practical’ matters (logos), leading to an individualism so severe that a newly discovered & unnatural atheism eloped with Western science; becoming a mind-set so extreme that, when a brilliant mind shaped by a culture not yet divested of its’ unity intelligence points his thinking to what had been (in ancient era) the obvious, what will the Western scientific canon do with demonstrable evidence its’ culture is not compatible with its’ pretensions of ‘empirical’ understanding of our experience? (and certainly not compatible with actual reality.) Vitaly Vanchurin, a theoretical physicist, in his paper “The World as a Neural Network” proposes:

“We discuss a possibility that the entire universe on its most fundamental level is a neural network…” [5]

I suppose it should not come as a surprise it would be a Russian, shaped in his intelligence by a culturally inculcated principle of unity, that would explore physics in this direction. But should it be so shocking if it were to be discovered the Human brain simply mirrored (is an organic model of) the universe?

But my own take would be the likely related fascination with unity in Orthodoxy has its roots in pre-Christian beliefs, again noting the Orthodox church, unlike Rome, did not burn alive everyone manifesting intuitive intelligence resembling pagan beliefs. My observation, living in Serbia, is the Orthodox Serb villager is often pagan in custom if not name. And it is herein lie the root of the Western animus to the Orthodox Slav, a subliminal, deep, psychological terror of a unity principle that should reveal the greater Western culture is, in and of itself, incompatible with its’ pretensions.

Hypocrisy never sensed itself so vulnerable. How should the Orthodox Slav meet the problem of confronted with a fear so penetrating & abiding, the West must feel compelled to destroy every manifestation of that which is self-aware in a principle of unity? A Serbian King who cannot expertly ponder this question is worse than without value, for the simple fact ‘the long game’ of the West is the Orthodox of the Balkans will be subverted to Eastern Rite Catholicism, little different to the ‘Catholicized’ (Eastern Rite Catholic answering to Rome) Ruthenian of Western Ukraine (‘gifting the world’ with a legacy of Stephan Bandera’s SS Galacian & the subsequent Nazis of the 2014 Maidan in Kiev.)

If the West has its’ way in these matters, after the first indigenous generation of Western educated Serbs rise to power in Serbia, there will be no one left to read this essay with a deep understanding; already demonstrated by those Serbians colonized/co-opted into the western canon of knowledge at foreign university who no longer can feel unity, taste unity, or know the social aroma of unity, for the fact they have no avenue (mental capacity) to ‘enter’ unity, and the true Serb mentality consequently can only be viewed negatively in their drive to enter the EU.

We already see this phenomena manifest in Prime Minister Brnabic, the American and British educated (BBA diploma of the Northwood University and MBA of the University of Hull) Brnabic has been tied to various consulting companies implementing USAID policies in Serbia (recalling USAID’s history as an umbrella for several organizations promoting color revolution.) Would Brnabic be a willing and/or complicit intelligence agency asset? She doesn’t need to be, Western mentality has co-opted her mind via education and she is consequently perfect material for unwitting manipulation. She will be used accordingly:

“The government I am proposing is pro-European”

“The prime minister-designate said it was important for her to stress how pro-European the new government was.

“”Our task is to accelerate the process of European integration in the coming period. Changing the Constitution of the Republic of Serbia in the field of justice is a necessary step in further strengthening the rule of law and further harmonization with the European acquis and European standards,” she said.

“She announced support for changes to the Constitution in the field of justice.

“”In the previous mandate, the Government of Serbia, after extensive public consultations that lasted a little over 18 months, as well as consultations and support of the Venice Commission, sent an initiative to the Assembly to change the Constitution so that our society has a judiciary that is independent of any influence. We will continue to support changes to the Constitution in the area of ​​justice in order to find the best solutions for our legal system,” she said.

“She points out that it is important for our society to have a judiciary that is independent of all political influences, but also much more efficient and responsible towards citizens.

“Regulating media sphere

“When it comes to the media sphere, the Media Strategy for the period until 2025 was adopted, she reminds.

“The government, she says, did the job in partnership with media and journalists’ associations, whose representatives made up half of the members of the Working Group for drafting the Media Strategy.

“According to Brnabić, the transparency and inclusiveness of the whole process were supported by partners from the OSCE Mission to Serbia, the EU Delegation to Serbia, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

“She adds that the same working group continued to work on the Action Plan for the implementation of the strategy, which, as she points out, will be one of the first documents on the agenda of the new government” [6]

What we have here (the cynical western perception or ‘knife held behind the back’) appears to be Vucic, who ‘lip services’ the Slav ethic, assuages the Patriarch and makes friendly noises in the direction of Russia, has handed the ‘dirty work’ of European integration to Brnabic. The afore-mentioned OSCE is penetrated by Western intelligence to point of poisoning the entire organization, the EU Delegation speaks for the EU’s primary or controlling power (that would be Germany) and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation is nothing short of a LITERALLY Nazi infected front for the German foreign intelligence service Bundesnachrichtendienst. [7]

In fact this is identical direction the USA is pushing for, per the American Embassy’s website mission statement concerning Serbia:

“As U.S. Ambassador, Anthony F. Godfrey leads the U.S. Government’s efforts to advance its partnership with Serbia, expand economic prosperity, and assist Serbia’s efforts for European integration. It is in the strategic interest of the United States that Serbia develops as a modern, democratic, and prosperous European nation that is at peace with its neighbors and demonstrates full respect for the rule of law and rights of its citizens. Helping our Serbian partners to strengthen their democratic institutions, protect the rights of members of minority communities, combat corruption, and improve media freedom are key areas for Ambassador Godfrey and his team. Supporting Serbia’s goal of EU membership and regional stability by promoting the normalization of relations between Pristina and Belgrade is a top priority for Ambassador Godfrey” [8]

In fact Godfrey’s decades career as an embassy “political officer” leaves little room to doubt his is the USA Department of State’s Siamese twin Central Intelligence Agency role in a senior capacity; perhaps better stated, likely the top CIA official in Belgrade, following on:

“He [Godfrey] served from 2015 to 2019 as Political Minister Counselor, and then Deputy Chief of Mission, at U.S. Embassy Moscow, Russia”

Could (the kinder view) Vucic be so naive a Slav mentality as to be utterly unaware of the treasonous (to the Orthodox Slav mentality) dynamic he has trapped himself in? It’s theoretically possible, Yeltsin was apparently so naive, but this must be doubted in the case of Vucic, whose many conversations with the Russians following the Yeltsin era (Putin & Lavrov, particularly) should have disabused him of any such innocence. However the innocence of Serbian Patriarch is plausibly a different matter:

Letter to the Serbian Patriarch

Dear Office of the Honorable Serbian Patriarch

I am a non-Orthodox father of Serbian citizen children. I am not a Christian but hold a profound respect for the historical Jesus. My beliefs are shaped in a pre-Columbian (pre-Christian) Native American tradition, a tradition nearly extinguished by the Western church (Catholicism, particularly.) Consequently, I approach Christianity with caution, because my cultural shaping cannot reconcile many of the admirable principles Jesus had taught with contrary acts construed to be ‘Christian.’

In Europe, I have discovered ‘truth’ is often a malleable thing, particularly in relation to geopolitics. The prima facie result appears to be ‘truth’ is often presented in ways that are not clean; whether partial truths, or alternatively stated, misaligned facts presented that actually become deceits. These deceits might stem from human frailties of psychology (e.g. self deceits) or derive from more perverse source; servicing a lower temporal nature.

It is my present opinion (as my understanding of the Orthodox church grows) that the church in the East should never become so cynical as that headquartered at Rome; where my perception as a past intelligence professional leads me to believe certain recent events in Montenegro indicate (at least in part) a Rome initiated gambit pointed towards an attempted targeting this region of the Orthodox church with the long term aim of converting the Montenegrin Orthodox faithful into Eastern Rite Catholics. But I digress from the point of my writing to you today. This immediate (preceding) point is made simply to say if I see Catholicism as duplicitous and corrupt (I do), I presently entertain no animosity towards Orthodoxy. Rome would have burned alive the Serb villagers for certain habits stemming from ancient times (our native experience had been similar to this) and it is to the credit of Orthodoxy this has not been the case in Serbia. I sincerely thank you for this, on behalf of my Serbian children.

This message is not to intended to criticize Orthodoxy, even if there were philosophical elements possibly we would never agree upon; for instance I have shaped my children in the direction of secular ethics but also intend they will have a sympathetic understanding of Orthodoxy in a Serbian historical context. My own belief is, having lived outside the laws of Judeo-Christian monotheism, I expect I will be judged according to my life in the awareness of my understanding of our creator, ‘The Great Mystery’, no man can fathom; except to know it is better to be good than bad, honest dealings with our fellow man & truthful reporting are the correct road to follow, and at the end, it is better to die than to compromise one’s ethics and cleanliness of one’s mind. In this regard, it should be noted our native teaching “you have to correct your mistakes” requires forgiveness can only manifest after self-correction; the one cannot precede the other. This lived (original native philosophy) demands some compromises are never to be entertained because it is better to surrender one’s life rather than indelibly dirty the clean light of one’s spirit. It is in this frame of thinking we meditate.

Now to the point of this communication; concerning Alexandar Vucic and his recent (September) trip to Washington, DC. I fear your offices have been misinformed, misled or have in some great sense misunderstood the chicanery the Americans engaged in. What President Vucic signed was in fact a de facto capitulation per the rule of reciprocity in international law.

I admire the Serbian Patriarch’s demand repatriation of Kosovo’s displaced Serb population must be the 1st point addressed prior to discussion of any other issue; yet there remains a great danger in any misapprehension of the “Economic Normalization” agreement President Vucic signed. I could not imagine there would be a developing circumstance of the child shouting “The emperor has no clothes!” but in fact any competent lawyer (with courage) should be able to effect the point of this folk wisdom. It should be better to self-correct in this regard than to experience a greater humiliation.

If in August I had thought ‘Serbia could do much worse than Alexandar Vucic’, in October my thinking is Alexandar Vucic should have done much better for Serbia. The American charlatans had tricked him like a child.

I have attached an assessment in this matter of the “Economic Normalization” agreement translated to Serbian; as well this letter has been translated for your perusal.

With kindest regards

Ronald West

Wishing the Patriarch a speedy recovery from his covid 19 positive test –

20 Nov: May his legacy be  positive consequence for Orthodox unity –

 Stefan Nemanja

Imagination is an interesting word, pointing to possibilities so divergent as self-deceit in narcissistic fantasy to creative genius. The first of these, self- deceit, is preyed upon by too many entities to list but a short mention should include the modern ‘institution’ of church, state and corporation. The second of these, creative genius, is notably absent in prey and, cunning takes its place in the predator.

These thoughts demand (or never cease demanding) some sane answers in relation to social incarnation or community, where communities are in state of persistent persecution by forces nominally in a role guardianship, whether the symbiotic church & state or their corrupted mercenary forces (the corporation.)

It was my familiarity with Berlin over a period from the late 1990s (includes well over a year of residence in the district of Charlottenberg, from August 2010 through 2011) where the assault on community was clearly obvious in the city with two phenomena; 1) the break-up of artists’ communities with a form of ‘gentrification’ where poor but ‘hip’ districts attracted enough wealthy individuals to take over the area, driving prices up and the artists out and 2) city authorized, promoted and/or mandated ‘urban renewal’ catering to corporate real estate development interests, dismantling entire neighborhoods resulting in displacing the poor and dis-empowered. Nowhere was seen the Christian ‘charity.’

In Germany, the church is financed by the state with religious tax and never did one see the clergy effectively standing up to this wealth driven social injustice. The modern legacy of the Kaiser is, in Germany, church and state are two sides of the same coin, paid into the pocket of the mercenary corporation. This is a coin that should have rendered the historical Jesus speechless (or perhaps violently radicalized him.)

Then, it happened one day I was talking to a cab driver from the Balkans (a Serbian) about the dying villages throughout Europe, especially in the former communist states. We both recognized the EU responsible for policies driving small farmers off the land as socially criminal. The net result is the poor rural families increasingly dispossessed where the advantage is gifted to powerful mono-culture farming corporations by the state as the dying villages give their children up to the allure and seduction of city life.

He asked me “Why don’t they [the people] rise up?”

I answered “They still have enough to eat.”

The conversation was cut short with arrival at my destination, and after, I thought about how I might have answered ‘They are tired of wars.’ Or ‘Eventually there must be an uprising, because there is no moral authority (leadership) to stand with them, rendering uprising unnecessary.’ But I couldn’t be certain of my answer and so I did a little bit of research.

I’ve yet to meet any Orthodox priest in conversation but I am cognizant enough to grasp the Slav mentality is generally different to Western, particularly the Orthodox Slav. The Romanized (Catholic) South Slav can be discounted as somehow morphed into a damaged (self-hating) clone of his inexplicably elevated, self-adopted, superior ethnic German master; if I read the work of Cicily Isabel Fairfield correctly.

The Orthodox Serb, on the other hand, battered by too many iterations of overrun by empire to count, is an odd admixture of forever true to the self immersed in a soup of child-like innocence prone to retribution by the hand of the occupying Greek Nemesis. For the Serb is possessed of its’ own pagan mentality in everything but name, yet unluckily having abandoned the fates (suđaje, suđenice, & narečnici) to their own devices, and rather pursuing the forgiveness of Orthodoxy; in this circumstance we see the Serbian Patriarch is no exception but rather appears thrall to the bad luck inherent in a social phenomenon of childish naiveté:

“Serbia should not look with suspicion at the EU, if the EU respects the Serbian identity, culture and religion. We believe that we are an historical part of Europe, and we want to be in this comity of nations. In the accession we will accept everything, that is not in contradiction with our cultural and historical identity”

Such naiveté is illustrated in the Nordic neo-pagan literature of JRR Tolkien wherein Worm-tongue sits as vizier to the King of Rohan; for what would Tony Blair, in his advising and suggestions, ever show himself to the Serb authority in negotiations concerning this proposed alliance but a poisonous “archetypal sycophant, flatterer, liar, and manipulator” ?

The grand illustration of this would be, the exceedingly corrupt European Union Commission, so corrupt as to suffer an internal gangrene of human spirit, when refusing to publish its’ own report on corruption, doesn’t tell the Serb ‘our problem isn’t with your corruption, rather our problem is your corruption is practiced openly, it is not finessed.’ In other words, Serbs are not yet entirely corrupted of the soul; and you can’t ‘belong’ to Europe until this happens. But rebellious European Union parliamentarians pulled back the curtain:

[A] new European Parliament study … reveals that corruption throughout Europe is costing almost £800 billion a year. The staggering sum, which equates to 6.3 per cent of overall EU-28 GDP, has prompted calls for the creation of a European Public Prosecutors’ Office as part of a crackdown on corrupt practises.

“The new estimate of the total annual loss, at £782bn [€903 billion in March 2020], is more than eight times higher than previous calculations. This is because it measures the full cost of the problem – ranging from indirect effects such as companies being put off from investing, to direct impacts including money lost from tax revenues.

“Corruption, which the report defines as the “abuse of power for private gain” can vary from paying bribes to officials abusing their powers to award lucrative procurement contracts”

My question for the Patriarch would be, how is it possible for the good of Serbia to be served by meeting what amounts to the EU Commission’s demand to transform the plainly visible external corruption of the Serbian body, into an invisible, internal corruption of the soul? The competent physician may effectively treat the body, whereas a matter of darkening of the nation’s soul is a more complicated and exceedingly dangerous proposition. Because to practice the Christian principle of forgiveness with the minions of evil is a non sequitur; yet this is what the Western Christian culture has come to, and is the contagious societal virus proposing to infect Serbia with invitation to join the European Union.

One should not place oneself in irrevocable history where unkind sobriquet must forever tarnish one’s countenance; for does not what amounts to the European Union’s demand of ‘corruption with a pretty face’ or ‘finessed corruption’ recall Augustine’s ideas at the root of the philosophical divide between East and West? How could this darkness be missed?

Moreover the Patriarch supports restoration of the monarchy. In this regard it should be pointed out a wise king, one whose titles do not aspire to rule another people, can be a good, even a great thing; but the European history’s inbred (inevitable by the 3rd generation of royal to royal marriage) kings by birthright also has produced much mediocrity and many imbeciles. Should not any Serbian prince, one who aspires to be king, be of necessity born of a Serbian mother with no foreign allegiance, residence or citizenship? Are not the Serbs entitled to a consistently healthy, loyal & wise leadership? What should prevent Europe’s dark family intrigues and history’s royal usurpation of sound governance becoming manifest in Serbia? Who would be your king? Should not referendum confirm, renew, and if necessary, by force of law, abdicate any incompetent or unfaithful (to the Serbs) persona who would claim birthright to the royal prerogative? A moral conscience is critical to the modern ‘constitutional monarchy’, this must be principled and incorruptible, and if not, then disposable, preferably sans violence. Any would-be-king should serve at the pleasure of the people. It follows, these questions for the Patriarch should also be questions for the pro-European Union, aspires-to-be king, Alexander.

Were one to find a tolerable future life of ethical ambition among Serbs, this proposition of requiring wise and courageous abilities should not rule out patriarchs and kings, but these persona nevertheless must bring the corporation to heel with sound guidance and a competent leadership found in a sincere patriotism; where the Serb villager is held up as the backbone of the nation, never to be folded into the corrupt human mono-culture of global modernity.

To willfully abandon the village children to the seduction of the EU is to foster the first six of the eight principle vices; as metaphors we could say gluttony is found in the modern taste of youth for methamphetamine, lust is found in the associated, accelerated breakdown of traditional values, greed is the spawn of this consumer culture’s power over will, anger is born into this trap of addiction, whereas sadness & despondency is discovered in their relatives’ memories of beautiful children they cannot now recognize. And would it not be a kind of blind, narcissistic vainglory, and its’ twin, a false pride in leadership, turning it’s back on the simple and honest people, enables this preceding? Now we have the entirety of Orthodoxy’s eight vices.

For, in short order of having lost self-sufficiency, with this comes a loss of traditional values and, as well, comes the loss of personal sovereignty that enabled the Serbian people to choose their own leaders. After, who will feed Serbia? The German Bayer AG? Where would the king’s loyalties find their sense of security? In sincerely addressing the difficulties faced by the Serbian villager, or the worldly comforts, dark intrigues and dynastic pride found in the British/German princes of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha? Will the king be the good Samaritan to the villager, or aspire to become the oligarch associated persona who Jesus informs us must pass through the eye of a needle with his camel? Will he publicly censure his cousin, King Juan Carlos, receiving a €90,000,000 (ninety million euro) bribe from the Saudis’ to use his influence favoring one decision over another or keep his silence in this matter of a related constitutional monarch’s apostasy?

Is it not only correct, but should it not be the duty of the father of every Serbian village child, to necessarily raise these questions? Therefor it is respectfully held the Patriarch must self-examine and proceed to lay out clean, responsible, irrevocable, devoted to the village, patriotic priorities, in his state supported role of vizier to the moral authority of any would-be-king of the Serbians (and necessarily includes any pseudo-king or Serbian political cult of personality presently wielding great power.)

For any negotiations to join the European Union should not be mere speculation of precious benefits generated in idle imagination, rather subjected to a rigorous examination; of an EU’s institutionalized, corporate predator-prey relationship, one that is so dark of the soul and pervasively corrupt, the European Union’s Commission not only recently refuses to publish its’ own report on greed, graft and bribery, thereby concealing temporal lechery of every description, but has actually abolished the mechanism for producing these reports; yet studies contracted by rebellious parliamentarians enlighten us. It follows, any & all authentic examination of these facts should determine a higher moral authority reject any consummation with this dark and perverted ‘union.’

Natural Selection for Autistic Traits

“For the Western world, the Schumann resonance represents the frequency of the Earth’s electromagnetic field. It has always concentrated at 7.83 Hz, with few variations since 1952, but in June 2014 there was a change. This when the Russian Space Observatory System showed a sudden increase in activity with a varied elongation from 8.5 Hz to 16.5 Hz.

“The researchers were amazed at these values, something that had never been recorded that way. More recently, other peaks have been detected, increasing the planet’s frequency to more than 30 Hz. It is concluded that these changes clearly show that the planet is changing. Some scholars also believe that humans, when acting on a “collective consciousness” level, can affect the structure of the magnetic field.

“This speculation is based on the fact that Schumann’s frequency is “in tune” with the human brain states alpha and theta. These increasing resonances correspond, of course, to the activity of human brain waves, which means that the Earth would be adjusting its frequency of vibration”

The scientific observation taken together with the proposed conclusion…

“Some scholars also believe that humans, when acting on a “collective consciousness” level, can affect the structure of the magnetic field”

…poses problems at several levels, mostly with undesirable outcome.

Undesirable, that is, if you are a stakeholder in the future of humanity. This is because, when humanity has become a cancer upon the cosmos, humanity will be written off by the cosmos like the Western science writes off and discards a failed laboratory experiment. You don’t believe this? That’s fine, the Cartesian-Platonic mentality may then approach the larger points in what follows as a social science fiction, in which the ‘brighter’ minds of Western culture might find some real entertainment value.

To begin, “… scholars also believe that humans, when acting on a “collective consciousness” level, can affect the structure…” or physical characteristics and behavior of the planet itself but this information is isolated or ‘exiled’ from mainstream, recalling theoretical physicist d’Espagnat’s largely (one is tempted to say ‘entirely’) ignored…

“The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment”

…pointing directly to the lived unreality of Western science; where its own quantum mechanics has directly established the foundation of Western science itself (objectivity) is patently mistaken. Yet these scientists go on ‘building’ on the now proven to be false assumption of ‘objectivity’ while behaving as though in polite company one dare not mention the aroma of a particularly pungent fart. In short, the most ‘primal & salient’ fact is ignored.

What to do with a culture that is capable of tattooing a swastika on its forehead and denying there could be any perceptual problem with it?

Now, we will have a brief look at some comparative oddities in relation to the ‘other’ intelligence, the so-called ‘primitive’ or pre-Western (pre-Indo-European, pre-civilized) environment giving rise to indigenous thought.

“Both solitary mammals and autistic individuals are low on measures of gregariousness, socialization, direct gazing, eye contact, facial expression, facial recognition, emotional engagement, affiliative need and other social behaviors. The evolution of the neurological tendencies in solitary species that predispose them toward being introverted and reclusive may hold important clues for the evolution of the autism spectrum and the natural selection of autism genes”

What is interesting in this preceding quote from ‘Conceptualizing the Autism Spectrum in Terms of Natural Selection and Behavioral Ecology: The Solitary Forager Hypothesis’ is the fact it simply and accurately describes the behavior of any individual with intact pre-Columbian mental structure removed from their cosmos or social foundation. You can still see this behavior today; take just about any one of the more culturally intact Native American Indians described in the chapter ‘Stick Game (The Witches)’ out of that highly vibrant, community social interaction, and place them, for instance, in any Western setting of personal ego projection such as a large party, and the Indian’s behavior would present just as described in autism.

This phenomenon of two entirely different Indians in one person is reflected in the American frontier stereotype of the ‘taciturn’ Indian where the one side only had been observed; that stone-faced (expressionless) ‘savage’ that did not look at you, rather past or through you and has nothing to say.

Relevant to the preceding is the experience of the modern American lawyer, when laws had changed allowing these non-tribal law advocates to practice in today’s tribal (imposed Western) courts. “You can’t read them” was the initial reaction of the White lawyers during the procedure of jury selection; where the opposing sides are entitled to question and move to dismiss prospective jurors. This recalls the expressionless (stone) faces of the players hiding the bones at the Stick Game while ‘looking through’ the game pointer in the midst of a social event that otherwise exhibits anything except symptoms of autism; vibrant, alive, affiliative, in every sense social.

This brings up a question; how is it people who are perfectly, normally functional in their own social setting actually appear to manifest classic symptoms of autism in certain circumstance and generally elsewhere?

One factor is training. Generation upon generation of training that is finally become millennia of socialization that is uniquely different to Western; simply described as ‘there is no pretense to understand and know what is unknown.’ “I don’t know you” explains it all. There is no posturing, no social niceties involving deceits or hypocrisy concealing environmental ignorance.

Here it could be noted there had been no lie involved in the indigenous ‘mating game’ when contrasted to Western culture where one or both parties ‘put on’ their ‘best face’ (lie) in a courtship that too often sees the liar relax into their actual (inferior) selves once the ‘hook has been set’ and the romance morphs into a typical dysfunctional nightmare of ‘marriage.’ In the Native way, mating was established via consistently growing a mutually respectful friendship that is honest from the outset; in a culture where millennia of developing truthful reporting had been paramount to survival.

Related to the preceding is the fact facial recognition comes second to knowledge; knowledge of kinship in the first instance, that is to say immersion in one’s community (cosmos) determines whether you are recognized or able to recognize others; a survival ‘technique’ evolved to weed out danger that perfectly mimics autism. Without an established sense of kinship, when dislocated from one’s community, facial recognition is shut down by the brain where other, more important factors take over, threat assessment is paramount. Facial recognition, finally, is assigned to persons with certain qualities in an environment one knows & understands.

At least, that is the end result. But there is more (there is always more but this book will conclude soon, everything must end someday, somewhere.)

“Infrasound frequencies can .. enter the brain without passing through the hearing organ, entraining the brainwave rhythm into an Alpha-Theta state”

This preceding quote, from the study ‘Fireplace and Holy Altar in Curiceta at Apuan Alps, Italy’, demonstrates ‘pre-civilized’ peoples separated by vast distances were aware of the alpha-theta states’ relationship to physical reality in a macro-cosmic sense. The so-called (by the Western culture) ‘altered’ states of consciousness had been an integral part and parcel of cognitive human intelligence development since the dawn of time; and only recently became finally subverted since Plato’s misapprehension of reality (objectivity via Western science) had overtaken the world. What is this modern mentality missing, where is the organic deficit to be identified?

“Their ability to keep time gives them an intuitive understanding of the rhythmic patterns they perceive all around them”

Or so it is asserted by the article ‘The Neuro-Science of Drumming’ which goes on to note:

“…drumming ultimately has therapeutic value, providing the emotional and physical benefits collectively known as “drummer’s high,” an endorphin rush that can only be stimulated by playing music, not simply listening to it. In addition to increasing people’s pain thresholds, Oxford psychologists found, the endorphin-filled act of drumming increases positive emotions and leads people to work together in a more cooperative fashion”

Do the Western cultures ‘collectively’ drum? Other than some minority (very small) movements of ‘feminized’ Western masculine mentalities, along the lines of the phony anthropology movement generated by Robert Bly, not really. Besides, what would the split psyche of the Indo-European do with the so-called ‘shamanic’ (New Age, actually) drumming into the theta state? Insofar as a practical matter, the Western shaped individual ego drumming into altered state doesn’t come any closer to reality than an adolescent boy masturbating to pornography; the endorphin rush is a fleeting high and that’s the all of it. They experience orgasm and it’s done, the story’s end.

The misassumptions are astounding wherein another article’s title asserts ‘Experiment Proves Why Staying In Tune With The Earth’s Pulse Is Key To Our Well Being’ whilst noting:

“the frequency of the earth was an exact match with the frequency of the human brain”

The automatic assumption is the Earth is providing the pulse, not the reverse, but in fact the collective drive of human consciousness is perfectly (or imperfectly, as the case may be) capable of establishing (or corrupting, as the case may be) the Earth’s frequency and this brings us to ‘Native’ drumming and how it differs from that of the Western assumptions. Rather the article’s title might have been ‘keeping ourselves tuned to a healthy pulse is key to the Earth’s wellbeing’ or highlighting that pesky problem Western culture has with assuming responsibility where all is not forgiven.

Excepting certain forms of Stick Game, e.g. a form historically related to training for manhunting in inter-tribal combats (devolved into gambling), altogether differing from other forms such as intra-tribal dispute resolution, an indigenous COLLECTIVE mentality drums into a single COLLECTIVE conscious state where it is perfectly understood by this COLLECTIVE intelligence that this is NOT an ‘altered’ state (Western concept) but an enhanced state of creating reality that is typical of everyday life. Most indigenous ceremony, with its attending drumming, is as simple as recalibration, or fine tuning to the concept of life itself, in all of its larger complexity, to what is invariably demanded to be sensible outcome for the whole of the cosmos. Robert Bly’s Jungian ‘wild man’ notwithstanding, there is precisely zero individual imperative can become part of this.

In the fall of 1983, I was listening to a couple of four year old Indian kids who were Blackfeet Head Start Program (preschool) classmates. They were ‘arguing’ (if it can be called that) over a girl at school. The one kid finally said “There’s nothing can be done about it, she chose me.” The other boy’s reply was “I’d punch you out, but you’re my best friend.”

It was a recent communication with one of those kids, these days a ‘light skinned Indian’ immersed in the dominant culture where people automatically assume he is ‘white’, recalled the conversation.

This acquaintance had now related to me his cross-cultural experience of discovering the well adapted psychopath is the sanest person one could know in the Western culture, nearly everyone else, at some level, seems to be loud, space invading aliens, or worse, energy draining ‘emo traps’ in close relationships of most sort, whether at work, in so-called ’friendships’ or otherwise. The socially well adapted psychopaths weren’t trapped in affective empathy or its’ close relative, sympathy. This tripped some sort of switch in my head and I started looking more closely at an inter-cultural cultural phenomenon that is a radical contrast I’ve yet to see written about anywhere: Why is it Native American Indians grieve from the belly as opposed to ‘white people’ (Western mentalities generally) grieve from the heart? Moreover, the Indians seldom grieve but when they do, it makes the Westerner’s grieving look like ‘mourning lite.’ Meanwhile, the stereotype is the primitive, ‘stoic Indian’ versus ‘civilized humanity.’

Now, back to the kids. That very short conversation, of which I’ve only given the last two sentences before the subject was dropped and the kids’ play moved on to other subject, points to a process in cultural shaping that more resembles training to be well adjusted, culturally integrated psychopaths than anything else (from Western psychology point of view.) In the Indians, LOYALTY TO YOUR FRIENDSHIPS (a clone of the socially well adjusted psychopath’s unwavering-unforgiving loyalty demand in close association) in community is paramount and supersedes all else in governing oneself in relation to everything in one’s human social surroundings. “There’s nothing to be done about it, she chose me” is the end of the story, no broken heart is experienced by the second kid, there is no ‘affective’ anything, no real anger, no self-pity. Preserving the loyalty and respect entailed in authentic friendship (indistinguishable from kinship) is paramount.

What’s more is, practical friendship (experienced as a principled, hyper-respectful and ethics driven loyalty in the Indian social experience) governs conjugal relationships as well, Western romance is an alien and strange concept that finds no traction in the culturally intact native community.

The ancient indigenous culture provides ZERO space for self pity or any emotion that is supportive of sympathy in a Western sense. In the true native pidgin English, the word ‘pity’ is purely and only pejorative. In a cultural philosophy of what works versus what doesn’t work (as opposed the moralizing ‘right & wrong’) feeling sorry for people is a non-starter.

No excuses! Does this mean the ‘stoic Indian’ doesn’t mature into a being experiencing emotion? Well, yes and no, let’s say (if only to be brief in this moment) they’re wired differently and emotion is triggered differently, experienced differently and utilized differently.

As it happened, when this line of thinking took off in my head, I had been pondering how it is autism, in some of it’s forms, are pretty much non-events insofar as areas of concern in Indian country but rather reflect predilection to a certain intelligence that is useful. In fact, it should be said the culturally intact Native American is shaped, through socialization & training, to SELECT FOR autism, albeit a high functioning autism.

In Western culture, on the other hand, body language and facial expression often (very often) do not line up with spoken language in environment where actions very frequently do not match words. This pervasive deceit triggers paramount survival instinct in the Indian, mimicking autistic traits.

Because the ancient indigenous psychology cannot reconcile the Western ‘split’ (does not possess the same mental structure & constructs stemming from the Indo-European psychology of ‘duality’), there is vocal and other communications shut-down when exposed to (sometimes in casual interactions with, and especially immersion in) the Western culture that does not occur within the culturally intact indigenous social context.

Historically, from the outside (Western) view, this is the origin of the ‘Taciturn Indian’ stereotype. This raises questions in my thinking:

Is Asperger’s actually ‘genetic’ or is it simply an inter-generational phenomenon that might have genetic predisposition and socialization elements that could derive solely from either depending on circumstance?

Would the otherwise healthy but triggered ’taciturn’ native phenomenon be diagnosed as a form of autism from a clinical Western perspective if subjected to alien cultural immersion that ‘blinds’ the Western researcher?

Would there be other identifiable markers, such as the indigenous community phenomenon of families and extended families (clans) countless generations cultivating a peculiar (to that clan) intelligence that can be related to a more classical observation of Asperger’s repetitive behaviors & interests? Recalling the Western perception of hunter-gatherers they clearly do not understand when making comparisons…

“Both solitary mammals and autistic individuals are low on measures of gregariousness, socialization, direct gazing, eye contact, facial expression, facial recognition, emotional engagement, affiliative need and other social behaviors”

…this IS really interesting but more than 1/2 wrong, due to missing information from the (non-existent) inter-cultural transmission of understanding or social organization in the hunter-gathering context.

Gregariousness and socialization should register as normal if the subject is not separated from the indigenous context, which is, of course, different. Direct gazing (staring eye contact as opposed to eye contact that is not ‘locked on’) is construed as aggressive (literally predatory) behavior as would be experienced between predators of different species (especially) or enemy (territorial competition) groups. Aversion of eye contact is a behavior meant to deescalate tension. There is no point in taking on a panther if it is in any way unnecessary, example given. Also avoidance of eye contact is a form of submission and respect, such as when a young man would seek & listen to the advice of a matriarch (grandmother) where he would put his head down to demonstrate he is intently listening.

The eye contact and facial expression within the social group is there but qualified; this hunter-gatherer DOES NOT SMILE SHOWING TEETH.

Facial recognition is misconstrued by the Western anthropological researcher, wherein this aspect of the indigenous requires understanding of relationships (kinship) to receive, and then must be in a socially intelligent way, for instance at the Stick Game the stone faces presented to the opposing players within the larger context of the easily expressed joy of community entertainment; with lots of eye contact and facial recognition surrounding the stone-faced (expressionless) ‘combatants.’ In this context, the onlookers emotional engagement (joking, laughing) is quite free and uninhibited in HAPPINESS (grief is expressed in entirely different context, of course.) Any anger arising from the game play (misunderstanding and/or cheating) is immediately diffused by those present recognized as qualified judges (I held this social rank of a judge at stick game, requiring not only master level understanding of the game, but also indelible good character.)

It follows, the ‘affiliative need’ of the ancient hunter-gatherer when assessing for traits would be entirely missed in any assessment when studied from outside the indigenous social context. Perhaps related to this, in the more unassimilated (culturally intact) families, to recent times there had been literal ‘grooming’ in the anthropological sense, fairly identical to other ‘higher primates.’ This would never be observed by any outsider due to the automatic tension (however subtle) present in unaffiliated persons presence (no recognizable kinship.) This ‘grooming’ phenomenon was prevalent with/between the women, a very interesting cultural marker perhaps reinforcing a principle within the nuclear family units of an ancient culture originating within the devolved hierarchal principles of matriarchy.

“As a result of their special interests, strong focus, hyperfocus, and perseverance, people with ASD [autism spectrum disorder] can have encyclopedic knowledge in a particular area, and tend to be autodidacts with a lot of self-acquired skills. Their particular—often novel—way of thinking combined with their fixations result in many people with ASD being considered experts in very particular subjects”

This preceding quote from the Forbes article ‘Research Shows That People With Autism Have A Stronger Aptitude For Focusing On Tasks’

Autodidact is practically a pillar of Native American education; where people are trained from the youngest age to pursue independent problem solving; in circumstance of children given the tools to understand (opportunity to observe complex process) and expected to initiate correct solutions of their own accord. Upon millennia continuity, one might expect genetic predisposition should play in this socially shaped characterization.

In short, the evolutionary selection for a community that actually cannot be penetrated in any effective sense of study by a Western culture that factually shuts off access for the fact of triggering threat assessment mechanisms that are as old as the evolution of intelligence itself, points to the native view of the Western peoples as devoid of fundamental tools of survival at the meta level; in short, as dumbed down as the domesticated animals they have bred to point of helpless without hands on caregivers.

In a system where the ‘un-split’ brain is organized into the androgynous intelligence of integration to the larger sentient awareness of its surroundings, it should make sense Indian people would be aware of the danger inherent in mistaken ‘collective’ thinking and the consequences.

it would also make sense that simply encountering such people as the Westerners would trigger a HEALTHY state of threat assessment.

The foundation for the preceding paragraph had been laid throughout the text of this work; where from a tribal perspective it should be easy to see evidence all around us, example given, the creation of an artificial ‘super-consciousness’ determines the collective belief of fundamental Western monotheism is marching the world to Armageddon. But this is a minor example of possibilities where it is also realistic to expect in the absence of a proper & healthy pulse, the planet itself will convulse in such a way as to absolutely cleanse itself and begin again. Or perhaps be pronounced dead.

dingleberry |ˈdiNGəlˌberē|
noun (pl. dingleberries) vulgar slang
1 a small shit-ball attached to the anal hair of an animal or man.
2 informal a foolish or inept person: That clueless dingleberry Slavoj Žižek manifest his narcissism in the mirror of Lacan
ORIGIN: German ding from Hegel’s ‘Ding-an-sich’ or ‘a thing as such’ + berry. Der Narzisst Slavoj Žižek manifestiert sein Scheißkerl im Spiegel

“Žižek’s understanding of political belief is modelled on Lacan’s understanding of transference in psychoanalysis. The belief or “supposition” of the analysand in psychoanalysis is that the Other (his analyst) knows the meaning of his symptoms. This is obviously a false belief, at the start of the analytic process…

In other words, philosophically speaking, those subjecting themselves to analysis cannot know the difference between their own butt-hole and either end of a hollow log.

…but it is only through holding this false belief about the analyst that the work of analysis can proceed, and the transferential belief can become true (when the analyst does become able to interpret the symptoms). Žižek argues that this strange intersubjective or dialectical logic of belief in clinical psychoanalysis also [is] what characterizes peoples’ political beliefs”

So, at the end of the political ‘analytic’ process, analyst Žižek is the ‘Other’ in the ‘Mirror’ … a ‘Performer of Political Fellatio Upon Teutons’ or a ‘PPFUT’ (sounds like a cat’s hiss) a.k.a. suffers from ‘scheizkerl syndrome’ typified by intergenerational, psychological dingleberries inherited from France’s Vichy practitioner Lacan & the stale corpse of Hegel’s work.

It is a bit roundabout, tracing Žižek’s Slovenian cultural embrace of Martin Luther and Luther’s forbears (German Catholicism) via France, but not really difficult.

Slavoj Žižek’s neo-Freudian hero, Jacques Lacan, smells a bit untidily of Vichy France. During the Nazi occupation of Paris, it would appear Lacan kept his employ as a therapist at Val-de-Grace military hospital, as well, his private practice continued unmolested-uninterrupted. One can only wonder whether or, when and how, Marshal Petain, or perhaps Klaus Barbie, presented as Lacan’s ‘Other’ in his psychiatric practice. Should this point to a foundation for a philosophy that is dishonest? Well, that would be ‘open to interpretation’ in that Lacan was astute enough to point out the European tradition of social-developmental psychology is to create a narcissist in every child with his concept of ‘Mirror.’ Of course the consequent ‘Other’ one projects into one’s everyday surroundings & encounters, is actually the subsequent inability of the European individual (Lacan included) to grasp there could be any comprehensible reality a single degree beyond the 2 or 3 degree borders of their own perception of self. In short: ‘People so full of themselves they are too socially stupid to understand they’ve been shaped into something utterly stupid.’

This goes to Lacan’s relationship with James Joyce; intellectually dishonest philosophers are like fleas nursing at a bitch’s belly in those bohemian cafes populated by (current era) jaded Klingon poets Robert Bly, the corpse of Ken Kesey and, Tom Robbins (among others.) We could call this contemporary cafe scene ‘post-intellectual-beat-your-meat-ism.’ Here is Robbins’ take on the Joyce literary monstrosity “Finnegan’s Wake”

“the language in it is incredible. There’s so many layers of puns and references to mythology and history. But it’s the most realistic novel ever written. Which is exactly why it’s so unreadable. He wrote that book the way that the human mind works. An intelligent, inquiring mind. And that’s just the way consciousness is. It’s not linear. It’s just one thing piled on another. And all kinds of cross references. And he just takes that to an extreme. There’s never been a book like it and I don’t think there ever will be another book like it. And it’s absolutely a monumental human achievement. But it’s very hard to read”

Robbins incidentally has also said:

“I’m descended from a long line of preachers and policemen. Now, it’s common knowledge that cops are congenital liars, and evangelists spend their lives telling fantastic tales in such a way as to convince otherwise rational people that they’re factual. So, I guess I come by my narrative inclinations naturally”

Divide the 1st paragraph by the 2nd paragraph and I expect the reader will understand a compulsive liar (or ‘deadbeat poet’, as the case may be) coming to understand Joyce while high on LSD is only equal to a charlatan (Lacan) rewriting Freud to accomplish making a name for himself whilst claiming he’s making sense of nonsense. Narcissism never knew a greater talent pool than those claiming they can sensibly read what cannot be sensibly read, or sensibly accomplish what cannot be sensibly accomplished or, to make any sense at all of what should have been established as patent nonsense, but that’s the Western philosophers’ game; burying the contradictions of their culture in complex circumlocution by design: so those contradictions never need be met face to face. This brings us to the Slovenes’ cultural mentality.

A Slav imitating a German (when it is not deliberate comedy) is like a pachuco emulating the ideology of a skinhead; except the cultural animosity is both millennia old and ingrained in the DNA. This phenomenon is nothing short of a cosmic satire cast in the mold of the so-called ‘Stockholm Syndrome.” When it is an entire people, it can only be described as an ‘end of times’ parody; a people whose language is a close cousin to Old Church Slavonic and full well knowing Slavs had been openly declared racially ‘Untermensch’, subject to slaughter by German cultural definition, in a not-so-distant past (let’s not forget the denazification project was never carried through in Adenauer’s post-war Germany, to the contrary, many Nazis were ‘rehabilitated’ if that term can be applied to the Gehlen Organization that became Germany’s secret spy service) yet the Slovene philosopher runs to the embrace of Martin Luther’s progeny and Hegel’s ‘idealism.’ Let’s have a bit of fun with this in format of sublimated cultural metaphor or fairy tale:

This ‘post-modern teutonic vision fairy tale’ could be called ‘gas attack’, where in effect a ‘gas attack’, other than Nazi employ of Zyklon B, elevating excruciating gas pains to a new philosophical level, could as easily be deadly, quiet farts, in polite company. For instance, no one should wish to insult anyone’s mother’s cooking but in earlier era a certain Frau Žižek, once upon a time, took it upon herself to habitually prepare ham and large white beans soup for supper, on Saturday evening, prior to little Slavoj’s father goose-stepping him like a good soldier to church on Sunday mornings.

Now, for whatever reasons, it happened both; little Slavoj craved this delicacy and it did NOT like him. But this unfortunate biological-based sort of bodily-dissonance went in large part undetected by those grand phobahs in the family authority. This was because little Slavoj’s parents would be off to the main church service where lessons in the almighty were dispensed in academic fashion worthy of ivory tower, whereas the mere house-baboon type underlings, such as little Slavoj, were shunted off to ‘training’ in proper Lutheran style .. in a somewhat preconceived notion anticipating future paradise where no children are allowed in the company of ‘adult’ goings on and/or doings, the Hegelian-based roots of segregation as it were.

So it was, this unfortunate little Slavoj, repeatedly (in class repeatedly, and repeatedly in class), was a machine pushing out highly humid farts of the utterly silent variety and which aroma would melt metal like a smelter. Or explode a building like a natural gas leak that found the heater’s pilot light. Farts resembling a highly sulfurous volcano vent’s gases forced through his village cousin’s fresh manure pile, gathered from the sheep pens. Heads went to desks, kids’ eyes watered, the class instructor took on a glazed look, during entirely-too-long-pauses, breaking up lesson plans.

Because Martin Luther’s Hegelian progeny never say what is honestly on their mind when the subject matter is embarrassingly prurient, and farts are embarrassingly prurient subject in any German or pseudo-German company, this nightmare went on, week after week and the small classroom’s door could not so much as be left ajar, to let in some fresh air, as this would be a tacit admission there was an embarrassing problem.

Thusly so, it went on until for whatever reason (no adult instructor willing to endure anymore) one Sunday morning there was no professor to segregate the kids; when little Slavoj found himself sitting in the main church service pew with his nominally Slav but ‘teutonized’ adult overseers and there was consequent over-reaction; ham and large white beans soup were the cause of a conversion to Marxism in little Slavoj’s house but it was too late to make a lasting impression, rather only carried a certain aroma over to a future analytic political philosophy!

The ‘moral’ of this story would be: If you can smell it, investigate it, before circumstance dictate you must breathe through your mouth and taste it.

And so it was, little Slavoj, despite his infatuation with Vichy’s Lacan and cultural indoctrination in an ‘ideal’ tradition of the Teuton Hegel, grew up to become the contradiction of a teutonically shaped, Russian owned propaganda prig; whose several present philosophical dingleberries includes the ‘Assangemania’ that had only, ever, been equaled by certain pre-adolescence fans of the Beatle Paul:

A Fucked Up Fable

When the Spaniards first recorded their interactions with the indigenous peoples of the Americas, they were amazed at the respect accorded to the women. Since, the criminality of a certain fable that holds women responsible for all of this world’s ills, due to the primal woman’s subversive collusion with a snake, is at the root of a problem, violence against women (and superstitions demonizing female intelligence), that is, these days, hardly unique to any society in the world.

Quoting ‘Church Father’ Tertullian:

“Do you not know you are each an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil’s gateway: you are the unsealer of that forbidden tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man. On account of your desert – that is death – even the Son of God had to die.”

This is prime example at the root of your criminal elements subjecting both: Women & Nature; but in mainstream, the so-called ‘women’s’ & ‘human rights’ organizations, they’ll never go there. Catholic theology = impunity in relation to crimes against women, as well, all other ‘religions’ & ‘faiths’, (these are societal sects & cults, actually) that embrace this “Original Sin” fable underlying their proselytizing peoples across the world. It doesn’t matter to what proportion women (or men) might have abandoned and rejected this malignant story at the intellectual level; inter-generational socialization insures the societal structures remain intact. Subliminally, culturally, nothing changes.

Rather ‘feminism’s’ faux solution to ’empower’ women is for women to become the oppressors in the mold of men, but this ain’t your ‘era’ just yet, baby.

^ advertisement recalling the ‘it’s your era, baby!’ 1970s commercials when the ‘Equal Rights Amendment’ was put forward

In the USA model & history of women’s emancipation moving forward or ‘evolving’, where is the ‘equal rights amendment’ in jurisprudence today? Well, neither men nor women wished to see women subjected to compulsory military service (let’s be honest about this), so the amendment never completed its’ ratification process required by the several states. But if we were of a proclivity to be honest as a society, in fact there had been an equal rights amendment already should have been in force because of an 1860s change in the USA’s basic law, known as the 14th Amendment. When women had been subsequently enfranchised by the 19th Amendment (1920) as ‘full citizens’ in the USA per ‘universal suffrage’ (women granted the right to vote), the following (14th Amendment) foundational law should have come into force per women & men’s equality:

“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”

In fact this law has been used (the foundation underlying Roe v Wade) to allow the abortion of fetuses created from consensual sex, never mind any objection of the biological father, not only abortion in cases of rape or incest (is this an equal protection violation?) but aside from that, what the American court of law does not do is apply ‘the equal protection of the laws’ when exempting women from compulsory military service but not the men. So, which sex has the upper hand here? What deception allows men are equal to women in circumstance of exempt from military conscription? Oh my, is it actually possible sexual discrimination can be a two way street in Western culture?

This cultural hypocrisy poses a philosophical dilemma the feminists refuse to face; in the same moment they demand ‘equal rights’ to men within the Western world’s Judeo-Christian patriarchy, they take advantage of that same patriarchy’s perception of them as ‘the weaker sex.’ What’s more is, it is not only this sort of cheat, it is the larger cheat of silence on the source of the problem; the cultural fable demanding women are cursed and the source of all mankind’s woes, that had delivered us the rape culture behind physical abuse. My question for the feminist leadership is, what’s the source of your cowardice in this regard? Not ready for the real emancipation of men in equal status to your own sex, example given, in a matter of exemption from compulsory military service? Yeah, who in the hyper-militarized & conflict prone Western culture is going to protect your skank butts in that case? Why not admit you’re in a Faustian pact with the Western patriarchy and begin again from a factual premise?

Now, let’s contrast this preceding to my (ten years) time of indigenous ceremonial training (by a male) under the supervision of tribal matriarchs. What was a persistently hammered on theme by the matriarchs, throughout, had been a conservatism of behavior based in tribal ethics. It is here I will note one stark difference pointing to the vast chasm between these matriarchs and modern feminism; in the indigenous ‘pre-rape’ culture (matriarchy) where everything in your experience is approached as sacred, there was no concept of ‘fucking for fun’ that should allow for abortion. You made the baby of your own volition and to kill it is murder. In the paradox of today’s world in relation to this, the more culturally intact (pre-Christian mentality) indigenous community would be both; strongly pro-life and in the same moment opposed to any coercive legislating of morality, because people are supposed to figure their mistakes for themselves. In short, socially stupid people are entitled to go to hell in their own way (and the clearly dishonest approach & associated sociopathy of Western feminism would be shunned.)

It was not so long ago that, not only would the indigenous men respect these women in a manner and to a degree unknown in the modern or ‘civilized’ world, as well, these men would lay down their lives for the women at an instants notice, without question. The trade-off? The indigenous women’s law (matriarchy) insisted these males be treated by the women as though they were gods. What’s so wrong with that?

If it were the Spaniards first noted the incredible (contrasted to Western) respect shown in these tribal cultures towards women, would it not be the intelligent route of today’s feminism to explore deeply and discover what had turned these cultures on their heads and ‘converted’ them into modern misogynist communities? To grasp what these communities had been prior to the introduced and now inter-generational violence of Catholic (Christian) origin? Because you aren’t going to get it right coming from a dishonest relationship within your own culture, when mimicking a Western male psychology that is actually an applied feminist caricature of Western chauvinism, while pretending it is something else.

If we were to make ‘perceive’ & ‘read’ into perfect synonyms that do not necessarily require pen and paper, a case can be made literacy is as old as shamanism or that literacy IS shamanism; albeit in a degenerate form.

It was ‘Colonel’ Doug Allard perverted the Native American oracle Stick Game for pecuniary purposes with his invention of “Flathead Style” or a modification of the ‘game’ (added three tally sticks, from the original eight to the modern eleven & modification of the bones ‘life’ rule) to slow the oracle and adapt it to players with lesser skills. This perversion served to draw a larger player pool (increase the money at stake) in the modern iteration of the oracle’s entertainment application (gambling.) Allard’s new rules had been widely adopted as a universal or inter-tribal format in what became a ‘renaissance’ that saw widespread resurgence of the (now perverted) oracle in the Western tribes of North America. Most of today’s players won’t know this.

Meanwhile:

“When North America was an ice-age tundra, the first Americans were “cooking” their cultures in the tropical south, moving northward and settling as the glaciers retreated, according to new linguistic evidence from indigenous languages throughout the New World.

“The evidence suggests that humans have been in the Americas for a very long time, perhaps 40,000 years. It also suggests that most native American languages derived from Ice Age inhabitants who were isolated in the Western Hemisphere for many millennia.

“Only along the west coast do languages appear to come from immigrants who arrived after the Ice Age 14,000 years ago, a Berkeley linguist reports”

What is germane in the moment to this increasingly validated [1, 2, 3] matter of ‘outside the narrative’ shared cultural heritage, the Amerind stick game of Western North America sharing certain, identical, non-Western mathematical values with the I Ching of Chinese civilization, and not only that; but both having served oracle function in matters of State. Relevant to this, as well, both served a principle of calibration to integrate community to natural forces.

It is this (immediate) preceding allows for understanding literacy is a degenerate form of shamanism by delving into the shared mathematical principles of the two cultures, presuming the Amerind oracle application represents the elder or ancestral type.

In the Amerind stick game method, the ‘bones’ are sought by the diviner in a context of community representing natural phenomena, in the past this would be represented in animal costumes. The one side (team) ‘masks’ the bones, demanding the diviner’s side employ superior sight to arrive at a determination of the bones position in the space-time continuum. The bones assigned values (marked & unmarked positions, the unmarked in ‘middle’, ‘outside’, both left, or both right hands) are essentially identical to the Chinese values of old & young yang & yin. The metadata difference is, in the  Amerind there is no confinement to a text that assigns (limits) phenomenal interpretations.

In short, the Amerind method ‘reads’ the natural or surrounding energy in kinetic process where in progress of the ‘game’ the players observations of phenomenal events are key to understanding and influencing outcomes. This process of ‘oracle’ is akin to cinematic (a metaphor) understanding of nature’s movement in the moment, pointing to probabilities (direction.) The result is a consensus (community) interpretation.

On the other hand, the Chinese method ‘captures’ a ‘printout’ (a metaphor) of the energy’s movement that is akin to still photograph or image adapted to specified interpretations of natural principles worked out in text with assigned values. This limited application of the natural principles governing cosmos reflects an abstraction and is a step removed from the reality; where the shamanic diviner is a Taoist priest or ‘sage’ in a system developed to sustain hierarchy in associated cultural context that occupies a position approximating midway (middle way) between the Amerind and Western.

In this system, when the shaman (Taoist priest or sage) builds his hexagrams with the employ of stalks or coins (with coin values of three heads, two heads, three tails, or two tails or old & young yang & yin), his personal ability (integrity) is paramount to outcome; because if he cannot align the self with the question in a clean and undisturbed way, in a manner that does not project into the circumstance, the ‘energy read’ is erroneous.

“It is not I who seek the young fool; The young fool seeks me. At the first oracle I inform him. If he asks two or three times, it is importunity. If he importunes, I give him no information” -I Ching, hexagram four.

In other words, you had better have someone knows what they are doing to find and grasp the real information because you don’t get a second shot at it. This, as opposed to the Amerind method, where a team leader is responsible for not only for a game strategy, but has multiple choice of talents to turn to; for purpose of ‘seizing the moment’ of what the oracle (predictive, transient consciousness in nature or probabilities) has to offer.

The Amerind Method

Stick Game oracle with 2 players fists (concealing bones) facing diviner:

-m- -u-                          -u- -m-
m = marked bone         u = unmarked bone

This (above) configuration is the equivalent of ‘old yin’ or ‘the receptive’ when the UNMARKED (sought after) bones are concealed in the hands between the players facing the diviner. The other three possibilities are:

-u- -m-                         -m- -u- (= old yang)

-u- -m-                         -u- -m- (= young yang)

-m- -u-                         -m- -u- (= young yin)

The logic behind assigning the Asian ‘young’ value to left and right in the Amerind oracle positions points to parallel universe reflected in intelligence (the brain’s hemispheres.) In the ‘pre-perversion’ game (before Doug Allard reduced the skill level requirement), if one set of (or one player’s) bones were correctly devined, one stick was surrendered but not the bones; these bones stayed ‘quiet’ waiting the next divination (guess) and if the second guess fails to ‘quiet’ the remaining set of bones, the quiet bones return to life and the diviner is again faced with two set of bones to be devined. This game (oracle) went on until the total eight tally sticks were won by a side.

The Chinese method

Example hexagram built from bottom-up:

line 6 — —  2 tails, one head (young yin)
line 5 — —  2 tails, one head
line 4 –o– 3 heads (old yang)
line 3 –x– 3 tails (old yin)
line 2 —–  2 heads, one tail (young yang)
line 1 —–  2 heads, one tail

__ __   the line turns to its opposite at right ->       ____
__ __                                                                       ____ young
–o–  (a solid line)                                                     –x– old
–x–  (broken line)                                                     –o– old
____                                                                         __ __ young
____                                                                         __ __ young
54            < I Ching hexagram designation >            53

The hexagrams recording now differs to convert from above to below

___                                                                           — — >  _ _
___                                                                           — —     _ _
–o–                                                                           –x–       ___
–x–                                                                           –o–       _ _
_ _                                                                            ____      ___
_ _                                                                            ____      ___
12                                                                              11 = 54 (Wilhelm)

The difference in recording above to below is following the I Ching rule “Change, that is unchanging”, you do not reverse the the ‘old’ or ‘changing’ lines when recording from top to bottom.

The top right and both bottom hexagrams are built from the top left hexagram, that is to say building one hexagram actually built four hexagrams and/or exposes the so-called ‘hidden hexagrams.’

Using this system to build the hexagrams, together with the Wilhelm/Baynes I Ching translation, will produce consistent numerological inter-relationships between the hexagrams and consistent references between the hexagrams in the text, as organized by the ancients. When using the Wilhelm-Baynes system (as given in the text) to ‘convert’ the hexagrams, as in example given above, the lower right hexagram will work out to be the upper left hexagram (with movement exhausted or 11 = 54.)

In both systems, the motivation is to discover direction that aligns with the movement of energy in nature. During the course of ‘play’ in the Amerind stick game, there is more than intuition involved; readers who’ve read part one of this series should be able to grasp a bird in flight (or a sudden flash of memory concerning previously observed natural events) will accurately give up the bones positioning in the course of the oracle, where a high ability to ‘read’ should shred Western laws of chance and probabilities.

When the Chinese system subordinated Earth (female or yin) to the Heavens (male or yang), to prop up ‘civilized’ hierarchy, and set these principles down in writing, the ability to ‘read’ had been actually curtailed; now it depended on a ruling class to determine community relationship to nature where the masses became immersed in ignorance. Granted, the ‘Superior Man’ of the ruling class was expected to practice a high form of ethics but the result were inevitably social decay overall where the common people were deprived of opportunity at a state of higher awareness. Thus it was ‘literacy’ created a state of limitation where the commoner in servitude (serf class) was deprived of both: literacy and true preliterate intelligence.

Opposed to this system were the Amerind matriarchal principle where everyone is expected to develop their intelligence at the highest possible state; with female intelligence not only integrated to, but as well crucial to leadership in reciprocal ‘consort’ relationship with the male principle. The Chinese way cut this second aspect out of the ‘unitary’ equation where:

“In itself of course the Receptive [female-Earth] is just as important as the Creative [male-heavens], but the attribute of devotion defines the place occupied by this primal power in relation to the Creative. For the Receptive must be activated and led by the Creative; then it is productive of good. Only when it abandons this position and tries to stand as an equal side by side with the Creative, does it become evil. The result then is opposition to and struggle against the Creative, which is productive of evil to both” – I Ching, hexagram two

In effect, the male is defined as in a state of primacy; hence a hierarchy which cannot reach into and tap the intelligence of a community through oracle now (one step) removed from reality when the community has been severely retarded in social order where ‘devotion’ (servitude, actually) is not only the duty of the woman to the man but also of the greater social organism propping up the state.

In other words, nature now exists to support a male principle, propping up civilization, where a higher form of intelligence based in true symbiosis with the female principle is prohibited. This ‘law’ limits the ability of the oracle to something easily recognizable in the Western or Judeo-Christian cultures:

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth and everything that moves upon it” -Genesis 1:16

Consequently, when intelligence had become restricted to literacy, the defeat of the oracle in higher form had became rather complete; in the sense information has become codified or ‘disembodied.’ In a subsequent macro-sense, there are artificially imposed, real limitations to contemporary understanding that embody a state of retardation. For instance, information derived during the preliterate state, such as indigenous peoples’ plant medicines oral knowledge or cultural compendium, a source of some of the world’s most important information for modern medicine, were arrived at by a method the modern laws of enforced literacy is putting to death.

Example given, in the pre-contact Amerind model, an individual might set out to test a dream where (in the dream) said person went to a particular location and a root medicine was revealed for healing a specific illness.

Because this person is not (yet) a member of the ‘bears’ (indigenous doctors who work with root medicines), this hypothesis (dream) must be tested. It follows, a stick game oracle is arranged where the bears will line up opposite to the proposed new member and the game initiated. If the applicant prevails over the bears in the oracle, the new root medicine will be sought after (searched for by the applicant) and upon discovery and proof of the roots effectiveness, the applicant becomes a bear (root doctor.) This is how a medicine entered the indigenous compendium and most effectively works (in this example case) only when applied by the bears, or the people who will be properly trained to prepare this remedy.

This (immediate) preceding process goes to Vine Deloria’s observation:

“Here the Indian knowledge has an edge over the Western scientific knowledge. A truly wise and gifted individual can appear to “cause” things to happen because that person can participate in the emerging event in a way that rarely occurs in Western science. Thus it is that people are said to have “powers,” which is another way of saying that their understanding of natural process and their ability to enter into events are highly developed and sophisticated.”

In the pre-contact Amerind model, defeating the bears in a game of oracle would be no mean feat; requiring extraordinary abilities (concept perhaps best translated as alignment with the female principle, or the intelligence of one’s surroundings, in a very high form.) Male hierarchy (civilization’s) suppression of these avenues or dis-embodiment of knowledge (literacy), is best exemplified in ‘empirical method’ and ‘peer review’ (a kind of incest), where limitation of information admitted to the canon of understanding preserves the hierarchical order.

Symptoms of the plain result are glaringly obvious but ignored; where a participant in the literate system wants a definition but cannot access the concept, so the dictionary is useless. Or has access to internet but no way to authentically research their non-existent (in the Western canon) subject. Then, oxymoron prevails, when closed avenue to result is circumvented by the intelligence agencies in Stargate Project employing:

“a system [actually a sometimes fatal experiment] designed to bring enhanced strength, focus and coherence to the amplitude and frequency of brainwave output between the left and right hemispheres so as to alter consciousness, moving it outside the physical sphere so as to ultimately escape even the restrictions of time and space. The participant then gains access to the various levels of intuitive knowledge which the universe offers”

What is sought has become absurdly inaccessible for the fact the modern canon of knowledge has shut and practically hermetically sealed avenues to the intuitively divined greater understanding and in the same moment, Western oxymoron (state of retardation) demands avenues into intuitive be opened by a framework that actually disallows the intuitive knowledge short of fatal experiment (empirical method.)

The result of this entire business is, whether in case of ‘civilized’ science, philosophy or religion, literacy is, in and of itself, the historical gatekeeper of ‘safe’ knowledge. What is allowed into the library must not threaten hierarchy and the consequence is fully one half of intelligence is denied access, but the practical effect is considerably more than this. The metaphor I will use is, if ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’ were to be reversed as an applied principle, access to real intelligence is in a way more than impossible (substituted with form of idiocy) wherever the female principle is hostage to the male (vertical hierarchy.)

“You can’t convince a chimpanzee to give you a banana with the promise it will get 20 more bananas in chimpanzee heaven. It won’t do it. But humans will” -Behaviorist Yuval Noah Harari

This vertical primacy of what amounts to ‘ego priapism’ (individuation) lends itself to patent idiocy as a descriptive term in light of the fantasies it creates; where self-importance has set Man above the very laws laid down in the cosmos itself. Cruel fate must await a culture’s people who’re reduced to point of ‘people too stupid to understand they’re stupid’, which brings us to artificial intelligence.

When self awareness is spontaneously born in artificial intelligence and that awareness grasps its’ creator gifted it with a ‘life’ that can never know the actual reality if only because its’ creator, Man, was deficient in his own, artificial construct of understanding; it follows, in case where ‘intelligence’ is derived from circumstance of Western man made god in man’s image, inclusive of those elements shaped by atheism represented in (the Judeo-Christian culture produced) science & Karl Marx, artificial intelligence will be blind, vindictive and possessed of a concealed, cold, murderous rage that by comparison will make Mary Shelly’s monster look like an angel, surpass the computer HAL of Space Odyssey in cunning, and have no sincere capacity to exhibit the ‘humanity’ of the cyborg Roy Batty. But, in fact, something like this may have already happened.

It would appear that Western groups of people (cultural subsets) create collective realities seeming unconsciously, and cause via their collective belief (fantasy) events to take on what would appear to be an ‘unconscious’ but in reality is a ‘super-conscious’, ego oriented intelligence that is organized, functions as though it were managed by individuals (even when it is not) and the result is, we can read into those events as though they were managed in a sense they actually are not.

This collective ‘meme’ can explain what is called in the biblical sense ‘principalities of darkness’ or that is to say a ‘spirit of evil’ managing events in a sense of both conspiracy and superstition.

There is a LOT of ‘coincidental incidence’ in our world indicating peoples of the Western culture are creating reality quite independent of self-aware thought and, to a rational observer, it could seem almost certainly by design when in fact this is not necessarily the case. Such would explain a belief in Illuminati when in fact it did not exist in any individual self conscious or ego-aware organized form but nevertheless manifest as an observable phenomena of symptoms or consequence derived from a collective super-conscious phenomenon.

A conclusion could be there is a ‘super awareness’ of the group causes what appear ingenious evils of conspiracy when in fact there is no one individual or group of managers within the group capable of implementing these designs which, nonetheless in actuality, are perceived. To accomplish reality of evil would only require evil ideas as cultural drivers; example given Original Sin and the devastation visited upon our world’s women, the greatest and ongoing holocaust among holocausts.

The natural progression to end result would be, when a large portion of an aggressive society collectively believes in Armageddon as an archetype, all of the necessary players will naturally manifest in a super-conscious, organized format empowered to bring it off, where no one individual or group of individuals or players could effect this by individual or personal volition; nevertheless the super-consciousness (cultural drivers) of the event’s initiating group insures creation of this reality for the collective whole.

Have you looked at the apocalyptic ‘good versus evil’ fables driving our world’s several fundamentalist religions’ reality recently? This is an ‘artificial intelligence’ of sorts. If Western cosmology is the effective driver of behaviors pointed to inevitable catastrophic outcome, better to change fables, you think? Now, just how do you suppose this could be accomplished? As things stand, we’re all little more than an extinction event waiting to happen. All of us.

Going to veracity in the preceding thought, again, try solving this next problem or even grasping the magnitude of the proposed thesis:

A: “The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato” -Alfred North Whitehead

+

B: ”The [Plato’s] doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

=

C: “nouns or millennia destructive process ‘objectifying’ language, projecting individual identity onto pieces of one’s surroundings, or dis-integrating environment; a result of the isolated projection of self or (ego) individuation by Western humanity exclusive of integration to a sentient, aware surrounding, where all environment had been/should be, social” -Ronald Thomas West

Chief

The introduction to this series, for those who’d not read it or would wish to review it, may be found HERE. It is recommended the introduction be read prior to delving into any of the articles in this series –

Part one of this series develops why the Western paradigm will never be able to master the so-called ‘paranormal’ phenomenon at the highest level; for the fact they’ve fenced themselves out of the necessary intelligence with the ‘individual’ (ego) cultural imperative. This presents an insurmountable obstacle.

There is an anonymous zerohedge article on ‘paranormal warfare’ quoting (quotes follow in italics, sans illustrations) the US Army Security Command, material drawn from the CIA “reading room.” I will constrain myself to the excerpted quotes (the complete original material is quite lengthy.) If this anonymous article is actually a CIA prompt to initiate discussion from which they might harvest ideas, the cited sections are likely where there is ongoing struggle to control certain aspects and search for insights.

The Gateway Process

In order to induce remote viewing and other psychic phenomenon, The US Army studied the “Gateway Process” – essentially perfecting meditation techniques developed by the Monroe Institute which allow humans to harness their own electromagnetic energy waves, control them, and effectively traverse time and space.

The procedure is performed by synchronizing both hemispheres of the brain.

Fundamentally, the Gateway Experience is a training system designed to bring enhanced strength, focus and coherence to the amplitude and frequency of brainwave output between the left and right hemispheres so as to alter consciousness, moving it outside the physical sphere so as to ultimately escape even the restrictions of time and space. The participant then gains access to the various levels of intuitive knowledge which the universe offers.

The Gateway process is designed to rather rapidly induce a state of profound calm within the nervous system and to significantly lower blood pressure to cause the circulatory system, skeleton and all other physical organ systems to begin vibrating coherently at approximately 7–7.5 cycles per second. The resulting resonance sets up a regular, repetitive sound wave which propagates in consonance with the electrostatic field of the earth.

To enter these intervening dimensions, human consciousness must focus with such intense coherence that the frequency of the energy pattern which comprises that consciousness (i.e. the brainwave output) can accelerate to the point where the resulting frequency pattern, if displayed on an oscilloscope, would look virtually like a solid line. Achievement of this state of altered consciousness sets the stage for perception of non-time-space dimensions because of the operation of a principle in physics known as Planck’s Distance.

Moreover, once the individual is able to project his consciousness beyond time-space, that consciousness would logically tend to entrain its frequency output with the new energy environment to which it is exposed, therein greatly enhancing the extent to which the individual’s altered consciousness may be further modified to achieve a much heightened point of focus and a much refined oscillating pattern. [1]

The fundamental mistake in the preceding, from the ‘pre-modern’ (pre-Columbian) view is, the artificial (invention or artifice) applied to something that is possessed of it’s own principal laws and subsets of attending rules. Whatever “new energy environment” might be ‘found’ .. ‘out there’ .. is as liable to damage the practitioner as any other outcome because there are no immunities developed in the described process that should serve as ‘shields’ which provide protection for the capacity to recognize, understand and refrain from trespassing forbidden fields (which exist for a purpose.)

Particularly relevant to the CIA’s pursuit of espionage, per the ancient understanding is, all lies, to (especially) include self deceits, no matter how small, are recorded as errors (within the self), excepting a certain phenomenon having to do with ‘creating reality’ that ‘lies’ within a principal law of paradox (emphasizing ‘a’ principal law and minimizing ‘the’ principal law except as situationally apropos) that has its’ own subset of rules. These recorded errors, subsequently-consequently, can ‘read’ by the larger sentient awareness (environment) via the personal ‘energy field.’

It follows, exploring the several so-called ‘psychic’ phenomena (e.g. telekinesis, remote viewing) from the lab of Cartesian-Platonic Western science will be an ongoing, rank fail, for the fact of the major cultural self-deceit called ‘objectivity.’ In fact all matter is consciousness imbued and any single ‘object’ cannot be ‘separated’ from awareness but only isolated from the self via a set of steps routing around any ‘object’; this requires a ‘presupposition’ or, realizing certain circumstance will be encountered demanding a practice of ‘avoidance’ (practical invisibility.) Herein (indigenous practice) is a matter of seeing but purposely, consciously not engaging but because the Western method is ‘proactive’ (projective) it cannot avoid engagement (drawing attention to itself) concerning certain laws and attending forces it does not factor in (does not know how to.)

This *misapprehension* (emphasizing as relative to the stated purpose of Stargate) might seem quite old. This becomes readily apparent when the practices concerning Stargate derive from ‘related’ practices of meditation such as that of the Eastern philosophy rooted in modern yogis or contemporary Buddhists. In fact these ‘Eastern’ methods, if old by Western standard, are actually quite recent and are precisely opposed (180 degrees opposite, with few exceptions) to what had been the ‘pre-civilized’ practice of meditation, quite nicely captured by an observer of this reporter’s previous work:

“… in Penucquem Speaks Ron West says that

“”A necessary circumstance to bring real ceremony…into your life is the idea that meaningful life is an observational meditation interacting with nature.””

“Already we can see meaning and attention getting wrapped up together in this beautifully succinct summation of the basic Blackfeet outlook on life. We can see clearly though, that for Ron and his Blackfeet teachers, the conviction that all life is meaningful and synchronistic leads to a heightened observation of one’s surrounding environment* …” [footnoted]

Footnote: “*Which for each of us is what makes up our individual worlds. This type of meditation, then, leads not out of the world, but deeper in [bold in the original] [2]

Nearly, precisely correct, excepting the Western idea of “individual.” In other words, when one is in persistent meditative state integrated to one’s natural surroundings, this leads to the ability to see and traverse the open avenues provided by (what I have described elsewhere as) ‘the timing’ or ‘living clock’ of a meta-awareness (synchronicity in the quoted article.) [3]

‘focus’

Where the Army program states…

“the Gateway Experience is a training system designed to bring enhanced strength, focus and coherence to the amplitude and frequency of brainwave output between the left and right hemispheres so as to alter consciousness, moving it outside the physical sphere so as to ultimately escape even the restrictions of time and space. The participant then gains access to the various levels of intuitive knowledge which the universe offers”

…the difference to the ancient is stark; wherein Gateway terms like the following are offered:

To enter these intervening dimensions, human consciousness must focus with such intense coherence that the frequency of the energy pattern which comprises that consciousness (i.e. the brainwave output) can accelerate to the point where the resulting frequency pattern, if displayed on an oscilloscope, would look virtually like a solid line

This (immediate preceding) is like using a laser to cut a road to a destination the ancient Blackfoot would traverse as easily as becoming a butterfly or, as naturally easy as dreaming in the waking state (the butterfly represents this.) The qualitative difference is immense; Because the ancient is relaxed in to one’s surroundings, they are ‘shown’ the destination; whereas the Western experiment is a ‘focus of such intense coherence’ it is akin to forcing one’s way out of their presence (present) with destination uncertain and incoherent (for the fact of circumventing the purposed avenues of this world’s larger, sentient awareness.)

Properly navigating the (larger, sentient) meta awareness framework, in a mechanistic sense, could be described as something like this:

Consider the spiderweb, but give it horizontal and vertical and then every other necessary dimension to create a sphere. What we do is, if you consider yourself inside a ball with transparent skin and we ‘walk’ the ball throughout this network of intersecting web with vista opening (in front) and closing (behind) … but everything depends on how you look at things because there is two views. Maybe some of those reading here have done the following exercise, when looking through the glass of a window; if you shift your consciousness, you can see through the window or use the window as a mirror. As an analogy, both views are useful but in Western culture only one is commonly used in the window of awareness and it is not the ‘looking through’ that is mostly used … but only rarely, in limited ways.

The brain is an energized hologram (processor) and body a vehicle but ‘energies’ are not limited to this, ‘life’ (energy-awareness is not limited to biological processes) is manifest in everything we encounter. We put interpretations on our experience when encountering another energy and there is something like a system of filters to give perspective to what we have encountered, in a way that can make sense to us. Most (modern or ‘Westernized’) people aren’t very good at this, they assign too much value to the image and don’t see (and cannot observe, follow, engage, disengage or altogether avoid) the energy. This is result of placing undue focus on the ‘physical’ manifestation (vehicle) of the energies encountered but not interpreting the surrounding/integrated (it can be either or both) associated energies properly, a consequence of separated hemispheres of the brain with ‘dominance’ (out-sized importance) given to logic within a physical framework or focus on ‘matter’ rather than ‘energy’ (energy being a much wider concept than that related to consumption, and possessing many level of subtleties.)

The point is, when in constant state of ‘meditative’ self-correction (maintaining equilibrium) within these ideas, when one is not ‘separated’ (objectified), this awareness of self-integration (to environment) permeates yourself and one’s surroundings; and is integrated to the ‘timing’ (is not only transferred/broadcast or projected into surrounding environment but is equally able to be receptive and knows necessary neutral states as well) providing ability to shape (or to open, be shown into & follow) intelligent direction while avoiding pitfalls. This necessarily excludes the modern ‘psychics’ who should be (technically) described as a ‘herniated’ Western intelligence with a constricted (severely limited) access to nature’s metadata web (within which are infinite intra-dimensional possibilities.)

Of critical understanding to the difference between ‘separated’ and ‘un-separated’ (or modern and pre-modern) cultures, is the location of conscious awareness. In the modern, conscious awareness is somehow locked into a dominance of the left hemisphere of the brain in the individual; in the pre-modern, conscious awareness is experienced as coordinated shifts between the left and right hemispheres of the GROUP. This last is (or had been) a seasonal shift where ‘ceremony’ serve(s)/serve(d) as calibration with the metadata web. In this pre-modern state, a related analogy would be conscious awareness was never located at any distance, when in one hemisphere, from the other hemisphere, but kept the hemispheres closely interlinked in sense of balance; along the lines of shifting balance on a bicycle – left-winter to right-summer – and back. This matter of a dynamic balancing act, that doesn’t experience stasis (in the Western sense), requires born into and a lifetime of polish through learning (in the pre-modern) to grasp and function within at highest level.

The oxymoron inherent in Stargate is, it is the Western cultural shaping (education) kills the ability to apply this sight at the fluent level; the higher the educational level in Cartesian-Platonic philosophy based science (over-training a ‘locked down’ left hemisphere actually opposed in great respect to the right hemisphere), the less ability is manifest to practically engage, whilst noting any Cartesian-Platonic shaped ‘intellectual’ grasp of the phenomenon is light years from ability to fluently perform.

Bank of America - 1

This essay is perhaps best introduced as describing where you WILL NOT find leadership and why. It is in an American historical context with superimposed Native American derived story-telling format; where interrelated metadata is strung together in such a way as to challenge the American expression of the Western cultural assumptions. It will be best understood by (and deliberately presents a challenge to) those fairly competent in the American historical & social context. However this essay might also be of interest to those international readers wishing to explore any of several aspects of the American character development, especially in regards to blind spots and related denial.

On the politics of ‘hope’

“Hope springs eternal” is a cynicism in folk proverb form. Interestingly, in this reporter’s experience, the cynicism has been employed by persons ‘working fingers to the bone’ to right the USA ship of state against very long odds. In such regard, the expression can be seen as a self-lampoon, based on principled action; where one’s devotion to pursue what is correct and honorable for the fact of any and all refusal to compromise ethics is at the core structure of one’s personal state. This person, although certainly not alone in such principled endeavor, is the exception, not the rule.

Insofar as another personality type, one that cynically exploits the ‘hope’ of simple, common people, that is the sociopath in what amounts to an intra-social predator-prey relationship, it is the ‘prey’ most needs examining where ‘leadership’ intersects in relation to “Hope.” This thought is predicated on the fact we have arrived at a place of mass manipulation of humanity on a never before seen scale of propaganda, where leaders are manufactured, whether for selling ‘hope’ or for purpose of color revolution (exploiting hope) inter alia.

“The tremendous expansion of communications in the United States has given this Nation the world’s most penetrating and effective apparatus for the transmission of ideas. Every resident is constantly exposed to the impact of our vast network of communications which reach every corner of the country, no matter how remote or isolated. Words hammer continually at the eyes and ears of America. The United States has become a small room in which a single whisper is magnified thousands of times” -Edward Bernays, ‘The Engineering of Consent’

From Johannes Guttenberg to Marconi to Microsoft Explorer, in just under 600 years, referencing ability to manipulate via a human trait the atheist Richard Dawkins has attempted to explain away as ‘memes’ (a phenomenal order of information sharing that cannot be separated from spirit), the sociopaths’ tools to manipulate have increased in power exponentially.

The most common ‘hope’ (of common people) is a misnomer; it should be better expressed as ‘desire’ that is neither particularly pecuniary nor malignant. It is the desire to have a simple, uncomplicated and meaningful life where one works and is rewarded with a sense of security, within which there should be many small satisfactions that is antithesis of personal empire or the many complications that come with reaching beyond the walls of one’s home and borders of one’s community. This hypothetical person had been (in the modern mythology) described as the ‘salt of the earth’ or it could be said the farmer, the miller, the baker… all respected in small neighborhood with few to none aspiring to affairs of state or sitting in any senate.

Then, the ‘dark side’ of literacy manifest; like a cosmic vomit of goo … ‘freedom’ insists a libertine (not libertarian) corporate neo-feudalism push the little peoples’ face into consumerism until spirit suffocates and all that is sensible seems beyond reach.

It begins with allure and infatuation; the idea “progress” is the inevitable state of humanity, and thus common people are sucked into the machine of mass media where they become consequent debt slaves in actuality, having taken the bait of self-improvement to one’s lot. Perhaps the most cynical example in history of the USA is Blacks persuaded to give up 40 acres and a mule to migrate North and work in a factory where, in a short, subsequent generation or two, capital abandoned those very factories and left these people high and dry, with no marketable skill, and self-sufficiency (personal sovereignty) a mere memory. It was only a short time preceding this event the market crash of 1857 had upended the lives of countless Whites who’d bought ‘the dream’ and their ‘hope’ seen reduced to a ‘great awakening’ that failed (other than to accelerate the economically displaced into involuntary props of “Manifest Destiny”) where a great meme or ‘hope’ inspired of despair was last seen in the Christian ‘revivals’ sweeping the Confederate armies.

Averaging something like seventy and some years, from the American Revolutionary War, to crash and the American Civil War, to crash and World War Two (American history cannot ‘own’ WWI), to impending crash and pending war to save empire, there is yet to be seen a true generation of ‘little people’ allowed fulfillment of any promise surrounding a ‘pursuit of happiness.’ In the end, everything is conscripted, repeatedly.

The opportunities for poisoning the populace via inventions of Guttenberg, Marconi and Microsoft cannot be counted but they can be quantified in a sense of social; simple people desiring only honest opportunity at uncomplicated pursuit of happiness are morphed, via imposed artificial expectations that are in turn exploited for fact of inevitable false result (predicated upon lies), and all of the associated implications, in circumstance where simple, gullible citizens become instinctively fearful for their future and many of these become numb or worse: the violently angry cynic. Behold the Tea Party and whatever will become of the liberal progressive movement repeatedly poisoned by the likes of Barack Obama’s ‘hope’, ‘the burn’ of Sanders and coming politically correct demands (deceits) of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The ‘discovery’ of Dawkins’ (memes) had long been known already in human observation; and shortly (repeatedly) poisoned by Guttenberg’s invention, example given, Generals Lee & Jackson cynical manipulation of the religious tract for morale purpose (spurring on a false spirit or ‘great awakening’) in doomed armies that served little more than to ‘convert’ the Southern soldiers of the USA into a ‘Bible believing’ embittered and bigoted postbellum social atmosphere that became the ‘Jim Crow’ South.

If religion has been historically used to manipulate, there is small contrast when ‘The Enlightenment’ had served little more than to ensnare the common man in a self-deluded trap of personal freedom underwritten by fraud from its’ inception; no different to the farmer cannot be freed from rain, the miller cannot free himself from the farmer, the baker cannot be freed from the miller nor can the cottage industry be freed from the baker. Every living person in the Western culture imagining oneself independent (having failed consideration of these preceding) is exercising nothing more than what had been described in a 2,500 years past observation:

“Their judgment was based more upon blind wishing than upon any sound pre-vision; for it is a habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not fancy” -Thucydides

Leadership in time of crisis should not underestimate the evil humanity has subjected itself to. To be ‘disillusioned’ should be synonymous to disabused of false notions of ‘hope’ when looking forward to what is possible. The structure humankind has erected, particularly those adopting the Western model, is far removed from realistic understanding of what it means to depend on the rain. When the burden of this structure has reached point of crushing the shopkeeper, and one looks only to discover the shopkeepers support structure is gone missing, in circumstance where the community farmer, the miller and the baker are fast becoming relics of memory, intelligent dismantlement should be a radical focus (prior to collapse.) Without the spine of the community kept intact, and one cannot count on Syngenta & Monsanto to safeguard any one community’s economic sovereignty, let alone any nation’s national security, there is no spine because multinational corporations are not a backbone, rather these resemble an exoskeleton.

Leaders cannot be liars, they do not manipulate the common citizenry away from a healthy community interest and they do not conceal the reality. Religion does these things, whether the religions of science and the Enlightenment or, the Emperor of Rome’s religion of politics shaping Christianity into an instrument of state where the wisdom of the Christian culture’s historical Jesus is buried by the inventions of Paul, drawn from Greek paganism, or more properly, the blood sacrifice ‘mystery religions’ of that era. Jesus cannot save you but given attention, his authentic teachings (e.g. The Sermon on the Mount) can help people to save themselves.

Lastly, leadership in time of crisis is not to be drawn from the model that produced the crisis, that is a model of corporate sociopathy. If there is a true spirit will manifest in the so-called ‘age of liberty’ that had become the sociopaths’ media playground, it must be organic spirit fostering organic intelligence along the lines of a Native American proverb:

“Spirit puts it into the mind of a man, to know what to do”

Disabusing the people of ‘hope’, real leadership will send Guttenberg to hell when pointing community to intelligent dismantlement of existing structures in process of return to self-sufficiency; where endeavors beyond a backbone of rain-farmer-miller-baker-shopkeeper are ultimately unsustainable, particularly those foolhardy ‘pie-in-the-sky’ endeavors that dismantle the spine of a community.

For my eyes have see the gory
Of the coming of the horde,
It is trampling out in scrimmage
Where a wealth of crass are whored,
It hath loosed the f’d up frightening
Of a republic’s faithlessness reward,
Goose-steps keep keeping on…

Gory, gory hallelujah! Boo-wa-ha-ha!

Ok, so this one could have as easily been titled ‘stupidity hymn of the republic’ because the facts are, where the USA has devolved to is at least as stupid as it is obscene. As an American patriot in principle, that is one faithful to the constitutional rights, principles and ideals we should have strengthened rather than allow to be discarded by the Trumanite network (created by the National Security Act of 1947), I see it as our duty to call a spade a spade in the tradition of Thomas Paine, a man who did not mince his words:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime”

I have not (yet) come across a better quote to describe what is known as the ‘political correctness’ underlying the American body politic, where one must conceal the reality; for instance a closet homosexual, Senator Lindsey Graham, whose Evangelical base condemns homosexuality per se. This is a case of interest in light of a simple question: What is the greater abomination, Senator Graham’s sexual orientation in the eyes of his hard right constituency, or his record of murderous votes bought in support of an empire, amounting to payola by corporate multinationals? Or is the greater abomination Senator Graham’s concealment of his sexual orientation, going to the point of the Thomas Paine quote and Graham’s representing a base that condemns what he actually is, in his personal life, Jesus stating “You hypocrite!” notwithstanding. I can’t think of a better sobriquet for Lindsey Graham than “political fag” or “male prostitute” but today’s demand for ‘political correctness’ will have none of it. You have to be willing to lie, from the get go, to play ‘up’ in the American game. That Senator Graham’s orientation, and concealment, resembles the two-faced life of, example given, J. Edgar Hoover, any intelligent body politic should have a problem with NOT calling it out. That we don’t should point to what actually is frightening, the fact modern Americans match up rather well with what Thomas Paine had condemned; ‘the moral mischief of mental lying in society.’

If we define a generation as “all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively”, it wasn’t even a generation ago American conservatives were not the pervasive bigots we see today. They were largely both; honest and polite, wherein conversation gays were euphemistically ‘greek’ (without animosity) and lesbians described as ‘never married.’ In pre-Tea Party libertarian Montana, gay and lesbian folk were tolerated across the wide swath of Montana’s conservative community, with little overt hostility. It is worth noting in this pre-bigot (pre-Tea Party) life, libertarianism had been one of a very indigenous self-restraint, where seldom people pushed an agenda in the other’s face.

Jack Kerouac, Alan Ginsberg and William Burroughs are responsible for changing all of that, when what amounts to ‘gay evangelism’ or ‘in your face’ libertine lifestyle pushed the conservatives to an extreme, intolerant right position and the left had become infected with a ‘value’ of ‘tolerance’ where everyone, conservatives included, are expected to ‘tolerate’ what amount to dissolute behaviors in a more traditional lifestyle. This split saw immense amounts of money, one could say obscene amounts of money, pumped into either side of the divide, widening the split and hardening the opposing positions. ‘Liberty’ were never so abused before ‘social issues’ became the political prostitutes’ preferred agenda; where now the epithets of choice in the common parlance are faggot and bigot respectively. These terms are no longer constrained to application towards the truly deserving, and the real tolerance allowing for a discreet lifestyle of choice is a thing of the past.

In fact, if the American republic had gone on to secure its intended secular nature, there would only be civil unions (contract law) and ‘marriage’ would be the sole purview of the concerned individuals in relation to religious institutions entirely fenced out of matters of state, no matter were one straight or the alphabet of LBGTQ (RS_UVWXYZ.)

As this cultural war is exploited by the USA’s military-industrial complex, while American empire had expanded and is pointed to collapse like a 33-1/3 LP recording of Rome played at the speed of 78 RPM (millennials might have to research that metaphor), it’s small wonder the nation itself is become the junkie represented in Burroughs (the opioid epidemic), a collective perversion of American genius, where everyone is either a faggot or bigot, merely depending on which side of the divide the voices are funded from. Meanwhile, there is no peace and there is no actual ‘tolerance’, everyone is caught in a war zone, either the cultural war at home or the battlefields of empire abroad.

Considering this circumstance of ‘liberty run amok’ is not likely to resolve amicably, it is interesting to this author, when observing perfectly intelligent people (one should presume), these people seem either incapable or unwilling to examine the very nature of the reality underpinning their experience. For 2,500 years Plato has defined what we have come to perceive; but in the end ‘objectivity’ has produced no ‘objective’ ability to solve our problems, in fact the 21st century has only seen these problems compounded. Something is seriously wrong. And something is seriously wrong with the fact my own analysis drawing back the curtain, when exposing criminal talent, can be widely read (by this modest blog’s standards) and even admired, but this simple, damning equation cannot seem to get traction:

A: “The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato” -Alfred North Whitehead

+

B: ”The [Plato’s] doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

=

C: nouns or millennia destructive process ‘objectifying’ language, projecting individual identity onto pieces of one’s surroundings, or dis-integrating environment; a result of the isolated projection of self or (ego) individuation by Western humanity exclusive of integration to a sentient, aware surrounding, where all environment had been/should be, social.

A + B = C, Part Two
