eve

This afternoon the Italian neighbor lady lost it

With a machine gun fire of incredible verbosity

More rapid than any Cuban’s speech to the power of ten

Punctuated with the English “Back off!” and “That’s it!!”

In my mind’s eye I imagined her man’s tailbone come to life

As it elongated and tucked itself between his legs

Morphed into a constrictor

And squeezed his balls to death

This essay commemorates the world’s 120 million living women who’ve been raped or otherwise sexually abused prior to age 20 years, according to a newly released UN report

“There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility, on the way toward recovering an awareness that not everything is allowed and that one cannot do whatever one wants” -Joseph Ratzinger

This very Joseph Ratzinger, also known as Pope Benedict, was a Hitler Youth Corp member, Third Reich Army deserter and former director of the Holy Inquisition, these days called the ‘Congregation for Doctrine in the Faith.’

What do we know about this greatest living misogynist, a ‘Pope Emeritus’ who headed the organization, the Roman Catholic Church, historically and presently responsible for more rapes of children and women than the rest of aggregate mankind?

“In the 1970s, pedophilia was theorized as something fully in conformity with man and even with children” -Joseph Ratzinger

A ‘theory’ which can only have come from the ‘Congregation on Doctrine in the Faith.’ As well, no responsible scientist limits approval of Catholic condom use to male prostitutes. One might surmise Ratzinger’s ‘male prostitutes’ includes homosexual predatory priests, depending on another culture’s interpretation of Catholicism.

We also know following a viewing of the anti-Semite movie “Passion of the Christ” Ratzinger reversed the excommunication of and rehabilitated the fascist-catholic order ‘Pius X’ and this way brought fascist-misogynist Mel Gibson back into the church, yes, the same Mel Gibson who left threatening messages on his former girlfriends answering machine calling her a “pig in heat” and telling her she deserved to be “raped by a pack of niggers.” I would suppose the Pope had noticed Gibson has the kind of money necessary to carry out his misogynist and racist threats, not only make vastly popular right wing religious extremist movies.

What had the ‘Passion of the Christ’ inspired other than Ratzinger’s comment he found the movie “moving” ? Would you believe war crimes ??

““Jesus kill Mohammed!” Another head, another shot. Boom. “Jesus kill Mohammed!” Boom. In the distance, Humphrey heard the static of AK fire and the thud of Rocket Propelled Grenades. He saw a rolling rattle of light that looked like a firefight on wheels. “Each time I go into combat I get closer to God,” [extremist Christian special forces officer] DeGiulio would later say. He thought ‘The Passion’ had been a sign that he would survive. The Bradley seemed to draw fire from every doorway. There couldn’t be that many insurgents in Samarra, Humphrey thought. Was this a city of terrorists? Humphrey heard Lieutenant DeGiulio reporting in from the Bradley’s cabin, opening up on all doorways that popped off a round, responding to rifle fire—each Iraqi household is allowed one gun—with 25mm shells powerful enough to smash straight through the front of a house and out the back wall” [from Harper’s Magazine article “Jesus Killed Mohammed, the crusade for a Christian military” by Jeff Sharlett]

In the preceding incident, Ratzinger’s “moving” “Passion of the Christ” inspired an entire neighborhood to become insurgents against the Americans in Iraq in a matter of minutes, pretty heady propaganda, I’d say. Oh, and those Special Forces members of the American military’s “Officer Christian Fellowship” who managed the entire incident of flattening a city block with 25mm depleted uranium ammunition won’t ever be held responsible for war crimes committed in a military that shields epidemic rape of soldiers who happen to be women.

No differently, Ratzinger has not volunteered to the war crimes tribunal at the Hague the names of the Catholic priests across Rawanda who’d preached hate resulting in genocide by machete.. and so it would seem some things never change- going to today’s subject:

“The women are right in the way not to bow to the rules of today’s world, because men made them without asking women.” –Montaigne

Original Sin is a Hate Crime

Original Sin is a Hate Crime against women, which goes to the Roman Catholic Church, The Assemblies of God & Religious Right, et cetera, all fundamentalism across the spectrum of civilization. In effect, all male ego-centric and rigorously pursued religious philosophy that teaches women are dirty and inferior

Men and women both, suffer these attitudes from childhood in the sense of a collective mental illness or, as social progenitors of violence which underlie negative phenomena

This philosophical violence inculcates submission in women and, in males, underlie motivation of the rape of women generally, the rape of children of both sexes, the use of rape as a weapon of social terror in war and, ultimately the rape of our environment

This story of Eve having been tempted and seduced Adam with the forbidden fruit, the subsequent instruction for man to “Subdue the Earth”, right to the idea that Jesus’ resisting temptation (especially as implies resisting sexual relations with women) kept him pure, is monotheistic or male ego-centric based hate

The following quote from one of the early ‘church fathers’, Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus (Tertullian), shows these attitudes against women in the undisguised form:

“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 was 1,700 years ago

In 1448, not much more than 500 years ago, the Roman Catholic Church issued “Summa Desiderantes” (Pope Innocent VIII) which declared women submitted themselves to demons and became witches, which made men impotent. 500 years is not very long ago if you stop and think about it

Today these attitudes persist, example given, the church refusing women the priesthood. This is precisely for the christian theological holding of Woman as responsible for Man being cursed and consequently Woman as the source of our world’s ills

Children across the world in monotheism or Judeo-Christian cultures learn from the story of The Fall (Adam and Eve) that Man is cursed because Woman was in collusion with a snake. That women are the cause of ALL evil. That women are dirty, guilty, and the original source of our world’s problems

Children are literal and impressionable beings. Teaching children women are filthy and the cause of our world’s illness is socially criminal.
It is time to call this causal source of RAPE exactly what it is. A HATE CRIME. It is the greatest Hate Crime ever committed

The Doctrine of Original Sin is a burden on Humanity, a deformed psychology which underlies; Child Abuse, Mental Illness, Domestic Violence, RAPE, the social costs of war, failures in education on social and environmental issues and religious ethno-centrism. Especially Religious Ethno-centrism. This is the socially malignant absurdity of inter-communal violence. The idea that because someone’s view of reality is different, that someone is inferior or less intelligent or less deserving

Religious Ethno-centrism underlies much of our world’s hate crime, whether in small communities of intolerance, or wars of nationalism on a large scale

This partners with the resource rape of our planet’s feminine nature (Mother Nature) for material wealth. In earlier times the spoils of war referred to not only the sack of cities but included the rape and enslavement of women. In the modern arrangement, this is become the purview of the corporate stockholder who profit from military conflict, arms trafficking and the associated rape of women in our world’s conflicts. In this modern military driven attitude of wealth acquired through War, the psychological ease with which rape is committed by Man is readily apparent: In the environmental rape of our planet feeding the violence of our industrial world and its associated rape of women and children across civilizations

The next should be a simple look at the related fable of Cain and Abel. The idea only Abel’s gift of Blood Sacrifice is suitable to God, Cain’s (feminine) gifts of fruits and grains grown from the Earth rejected by God. The subsequent image of the story’s Cain having murdered Abel is again Archetypal message of Cain or any man presenting the feminine offering of the gifts of Mother Earth being Sacred, is a threat to monotheism or male hierarchy. Only Abel’s ‘proper’ blood letting sacrifice to God is the accepted and desirable normative behavior

What are the children being taught? Through various memes of evangelism, whether Catholic, Protestant or otherwise, these Archetype imprints inculcated in children throughout the world are responsible for our devastating violence and social consequence

The logical progression would be to look at Mosaic Law underpinning monotheistic society. This is the source of prohibitions on Shamanism or, one should better say, the intrinsic fear modern male intelligence has of intuitive or female intelligence.
What is the shamanic awareness the western monotheism so fears?

Shamanic awareness does not draw the same clear line between dream and reality as in western culture or mentality. Or one could say, in the pre-western matriarchal Native America the mentality was organized for waking reality in the right hemisphere of the brain: opposite to western egoic thought structures organized in the left hemisphere. The result has been a reality invisible to western culture and the science of anthropology

This shamanic system of thought was the result of matriarchal social organization, where all males had been educated by women to average age ten years before they were exiled to man’s society. All of the men were trained to think by and, to think like women. However different to the thought of women in the modern culture’s left hemispheric egoic structures

This shamanic world was not a primarily rational or linear world however, it was a highly intelligent and civil world with a different grasp of our existence. It was a world where the highest law was Non-Interference, leading to a paradox to the western mind: Remarkably cohesive multiple valid realities functioning in a social rule where no one can know better than anyone else. The only method of being on the same page was to look at your surroundings and understand each of us can see the same things differently

Reality was perceived as a kind of Lucid Dreaming, where all experience can be shaped, not through the manipulation of matter as in finite constructions, but rather a fluid perception in which all is interconnected and related energies which must be negotiated rather than exploited. For 40,000 years it worked. People did not overpopulate, aggression was more often ritual than real, our world’s environment remained stable

As early as the 1920’s western scientists had noticed Native American languages described processes in nature that were easily adapted to describe the new phenomena of physics, Quantum Mechanics, concepts the western languages struggled with

What did Shamanic culture long ago realize that the modern world is running afoul of?

“In 1918 Christian missionary A. McG. Beede took Yale graduate Harry Boise to the Standing Rock Sioux and Turtle Mountain Chippewa reservations on separate occasions, where Boise explained scientific ideas to tribal leaders. Beede wrote in his report that both groups immediately understood the concepts without difficulty, saying:

“There is no difficulty in leading an old Teton Sioux Indian to understand the ’scientific attitude’ that the processes that give rise to phenomena may be more and more known by man and may be, to some extent, controlled by man, and that in this way the forces of nature may become a mainspring of progress in the individual and in the human race. The idea of atoms and electrons is easy and pleasing to an old Indian, and he grasps the idea of chemistry” [DeLoria]

The tribal leaders responded to Boise’s western science postulations after consultations among their native peers:

Rising Sun, Chippewa leader:

”The ’scientific view’ is inadequate to explain … how man is to find and know a road along which he wishes and chooses to make this said progress unless Manitoo by his spirit guides the mind of man, keeping human beings just and generous and hospitable”

Red Tomahawk, Sioux elder:

”The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right. It is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly … unless Woniya [Spirit] is with a man’s spirit for the light”

The natural feminine intelligence of these Native men, who were ethical titans compared to the typical modern man, is prohibited by Mosaic Law’s social strictures. Forbidding trafficking with spirits, and consigning necromancers to death, primitive examples given, have socially evolved to modern man dismissing female intelligence as superstition or hocus-pocus. In fact these are but primitive prohibitions on a high expression of female intelligence in a framework of natural quantum mechanics.

These social superstitions lead to similar attitudes in the male egoic modern science and share underlying cause with past witch burnings and paranoia such as the Salem Witch Trials

The Native men, on the other hand, trained from childhood by women in the pre-western female intelligence of Non-Interference, knew a world that most of us cannot see. A right brain feminine perception shamanic world. An awake lucid dreaming’s interconnected relationships to all things: knowing alignment with the great living clockwork of our existence expressed in a single awareness. We tend to think of this in the simplistic monotheism’s psychology as creation

For the fact of it’s applied female intelligence, native civilizations, indeed Indigenous cultures world wide, have been and are being put to death through various social strictures which have now become the largely unconscious underpinning and motivations of Mosaic Law in western civilization. This ethnocide is no longer solely on account of the more overt church evangelism

The Mosaic Law founded on Original Sin, and its ancestral and other associated or related superstitions of the monotheistic male hierarchy, has demonized women and female intelligence. This is clearly seen in the archetype stories taught to children and, in the subsequent incredible abuse our world’s women and natural environment are subjected to throughout the modern male based hierarchy; abuse perpetrated by not only necrotic fables integrated to religions but abuse which can be inferred to traditions of western science, only now discovering Plato’s related misogyny is a complete error according to theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat:

“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”

Consequently, those people who believe they have shaken off the primitive religious fantasies have fallen to alternative mistaken ideas (Plato) which have equally shaped our western civilization; pointing here to how society continues to be shaped by those very same forces via inter-generational habit. Your ancestor may have arrived at a rational decision not to believe in a  primitive religious dogma, but because of how the mind had been shaped at the meta-level, you’ve inherited a habit of identical structure; example given would be a secular god ‘science’ with a dogma reflected in a narrow rut of inquiry called ’empiricism’ based on Plato’s error of ‘objectivity.’ The fact is, you know very little of the nature of reality and this is reflected in the oxymoron of a ‘saved by science future’ belief in those very departments employing the scientists and producing the technology destroying us. The practical social IQ of university science is no higher than the practical social IQ of any seminary product.

This essay, in slightly modified form, first appeared in ‘Napi Mephisto

S1

Ron’s Conspiracy Theory

It would appear quite possible that groups of people create collective realities seeming unconsciously, and cause via their collective belief, events to take on what would appear to be an ‘unconscious’ but in reality is a ‘super-conscious’ 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 quite a bit 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 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? If cosmology is the effective driver of what appears to be 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.

Mephisto

Napi Mephisto

I’m one of the nicest and most unassuming people you’d ever meet. All I wanted was a simple life with a woman who loves me, kids, a garden, a dog, and to be happy. I’d worked hard, for years, sorting out my personal crap and the potential was there

Then, these closet-gay fuckers called neo-cons, went out of their way to louse up my journey to happiness. On account of that fact, this ‘literary endeavor’ came into being

This is an autobiographical novel assembled around various essays deliberately intended to provoke outrage, get teeth grinding, and to put really creepy bugs up stupid people’s butts. Thinking people, on the other hand, could learn a lot reading here

In a world in which 48% of adult Americans believe modern man was ‘created’ in his present form precisely in 4004 BC or alternatively, within the past ten thousand years, and Christian fundamentalism drives the wildly popular sales of Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” series of books in which the ‘Anti-Christ’ manifests on Earth as the Secretary General of the United Nations, not to mention the Christian fundamentalist belief  ‘Armageddon’, the Biblical war of the end of civilization set in the Middle East, must occur for the Christian faithful to advance to Heaven and now is the time… (The Economist, Special Report on Faith and Politics), one should shudder at the “The New Wars of Religion.” And particularly moving into 2011 with the USA’s military neo-cons pushing for a war with Iran

I was already acutely aware of the issues as put forward by the Economist’s writers, and I in fact have a deeper understanding of the underlying issues of Christian fundamentalism in some small regard at least, having been to Bible College as one of my several failed stops in attempts at social reintegration following my roughly one and one half years in a war zone, witnessing Man’s violence on Man. Both the war and Bible college, in retrospect, were a very American experience. The first time I put on a flight helmet and a little later reached up and flipped the ‘Nav’ toggle switch on the small console in the gunner’s seat of a Bell UH-1H helicopter, magically the Beach Boys were singing “Good Vibrations” in my helmets headphones as I watched the jungle canopy move a few feet below the landing skids on our aircraft. I was young, I was new and it was exciting, I won’t lie to you. I was thrilled. I was not thrilled, however, one and a half years after, on my departure date of November 8th, 1971, after having participated in this corporate profiteering war against “Godless Communism.” The subsequent mental violence I encountered at Azusa Pacific College (now university) seemed no less ugly, in retrospect, the student intellectual violence over matters of doctrine. To be honest, I have been sorting out both experiences ever since. Do I believe in God? No. Am I an Atheist? No. Nor am I Agnostic

It seems to me that everybody has got it wrong. At least in Western Civilization, which has overtaken the world, and I would argue includes Islam and the classic Far East cultures. Any child should be able to grasp that a Human species which harvests life sustaining nature at a pace exceeding life sustaining nature’s ability to regenerate, is pointed to a wrong direction. Let’s keep it there for a moment, child and species. The math is kinder garden. The entire Human species is complicit, or soon will be, with the destruction of the last wild habitat of a possible handful of Amazon tribes not yet assimilated, to sustained economic development. Sustained economic development is the present western economic model which has overtaken the world, stemming from the Industrial Revolution of America and Europe. To deny this is tantamount to claiming the Moon is made of Green Cheese. Like I once heard a Black woman comedian claim: “Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt”

Science and Religion, the great argument, both have it wrong. Science cannot deny it has provided the means to destroy the planet through provision of technology. Religion cannot deny it has failed to instill sustainable Human values that would prevent the planets destruction. Environmentalism as we know it, is a joke too, just more denial. Because the planet has produced a principle of cancer, Sustained Development, where we have already reached a point of no return for civilization, as we know it. To return to a balanced state in Nature, at the least in a presently unchanging social circumstance, most of Humanity must die. If the world’s leading scientists already know this, then they are lying to you by withholding the information or perhaps it is a ‘State Secret.’ Maybe none of them wants to be the first to stand up and say in no uncertain terms “It is all over for us.” If they do not know it, they are just plain stupid

This can all be covered up by arguing that Religion is even more stupid. That would be correct if something could be done about it. That is the problem. Nothing can be done about Religion except tell ignorant people the truth, everyone is almost certainly going to die on the present path. Of course to the ignorant Christian fundamentalists, that translates, yes, everyone except us, because we get to go to Heaven. They actually believe that, and that only makes them equal to those scientists that believe there is a possible ‘saved by science’ future, the greatest of oxymoron. Science put us in this circumstance and asking Science to save us is like using wild land fire control technique in the urban setting: Lighting a backfire. Set fire to the bottom of the building to take fuel away from the fire raging at the top of the building. It makes about as much sense

Here we live in an existence where Sustained Economic Development’s exploitation of nature allows a Saudi prince to own an Airbus 380 super-jumbo jet as a personal flying palace, a $300 million, 240 foot double deck fuselage with a wingspan just short of the length of a football field weighing in at 560 tons. A resource devouring colossus for friends and family that is nothing short of the western world’s greatest individual expression of what I have named “Ego Priapism.” What would be our world’s foremost collective expression of Ego Priapism?  Space exploration. What is the point of exploring Space? To create an Ark, to escape our planet wide self-destructive madness? Our Human race should be quarantined. Or we should kill the most massive ecologically destructive projects of science and technology, such as Super Jumbo jets and Space exploration and the immense resource demands of these lunacies, as an investment in intelligence. And as an argument to the Cosmos and Mother Nature that we are worth having around. It makes more sense to make that statement, than to pander to the planet-wide life threatening technological aggressions of Science or the moral aggressions of Religion. Because in the end, they are both exactly that: The same Mental Aggressions. The bed partners that screw out of biological drive and hate, they hate themselves and hate each other with the resource raping of the entire planet, attended by technologically driven wars of faith and religion. It’s all the same thing folks. I’m calling it ‘Honky Mentality’, regardless of Race. Because it all began with the Industrial Revolution, and that happened in Honkydom

In the following ‘Novel’ I am going to take a little bit of Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Anti-Christ away from him, reduce this bit of Anti-Christ to a good guy that is a Devil, albeit a harmless but otherwise highly threatening to peoples common fears Devil, to make a point. That point would be that I was able to learn more about Western Civilization’s foibles of science and religion from a man that had never been to school, completely illiterate, but spoke seven (now dying) Native American languages fluently and who was able to show me reality that does not exist for most of today’s world however, a reality that was once the predominant intelligence of at least two continents: The Americas. He showed me more real intelligence than any Western education, secular or religious, by far. It is a sometimes ‘satyrically’ MEAN read. But it is lucid, something lacking in our increasingly maddened world of the faith driven politics of Religion and the equally ignorant secular god named Science. If there were actually such a thing as a Native American god, it would be androgynous and its name likely would be “Lucid.” Of course the typically paranoid fundamentalist Christians would note the first four letters of that Native god’s name and freak out at the idea of Lucifer. Fine by me

It occurs to me to say an Anti-Christ might not be such a bad thing if one were to dispassionately study Christian fundamentalism. Christianity is a schizophrenic religion and the fundamentalists have the one half of it: that half following the teachings of Saint Paul. Paul’s intolerant teachings are diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Jesus who preached tolerance. It was Paul who made Jesus into the ‘Christ’ from whom we learn our cannibalistic social attitudes: concerning deferred responsibility for our behaviors and meanwhile pursuing the destruction of our planet. It has been established in research it was Paul’s followers who put the words on Jesus lips to conform Jesus to the idea of their supremacy and disregard of living an intelligent, responsible and accountable life. These monotheists need not concern themselves with intelligent living on Earth because they all have a better place to go to. This fundamentalism, in one form or other, has been around a long time. If an Anti-Christ came along to undo a bit of Paul’s work and get people pointed more towards the original ideas of, one could say the ‘un-Christianized’ ideas of the Jesus of history, that would be a good thing

I had a Nazarene professor who had a great regard for some of the secular writers, particularly Albert Camus. He had arrived at the conclusion atheism is Christian civilization’s prodigal son, the rebellious runaway living in denial. He got that right. Because the behaviors all stem from the same mental structures, whether secular or religious, for both. What he could not experience at all, and at that time neither could I, was the thought there could be non-Western mental structures framing an altogether different reality. This is on account of the Western Ego, which in a way, can only see its-self in its ‘imprisment.’  This small book, a mere ‘novel’ of hard hitting social criticism through satire, sets out to explore framing that ‘other reality’

Each segment and character has a point. If you become caught up in either mirth or outrage at the more crude or rude assertions, you will miss those points. So, hate it, love it, but above all pay attention if you want to get it. Up front, here it what ‘getting it’ is all about. People who cannot look at their behaviors, cannot let go of their behaviors. Psychologically ‘imprismed’ mentality, i.e. the Western Ego, cannot see anything beyond the mirror image self. That image must be broken for any individual, or even the World, to be healed

This book is an experiment in juxtaposing idiocy with intelligence, callousness with sensitivity, the obscene with the sacred and chauvinism with feminine awareness. It is a twisted book, deliberately. What might have seemed sympathetic or even smart ideas are sometimes trashed by inverting roles. By the end, a thinking person should question not the intelligence of Humanity, but solely the intelligence of Western Civilization

I am only good to the Indians. Whether their skins are White or Red (or Black or Yellow.) Why?

The most recent genetic research has all sorts of politically correct Social Scientists freaking out at the idea it will be misconstrued to bear out White Supremacy in intelligence. Their own lack of intelligence is to fail recognizing there are different kinds of intelligence in Humans. These politically correct scientists measure by a yardstick that is culturally biased to Western Science which originated with Western (European) mentality or intelligence, a world-wide contagious and malevolent social phenomena

Anyone can learn this mentality to one degree or another, but how useful is it?

Perhaps other people’s genetics are predisposed to an intelligence the European cultures do not know how to measure. Or perhaps it is merely a matter of how our brains are organized differently in disparate cultures. Read and think about it

The Characters

Stone Child is raised Indian in a White skin and subsequently immersed in a strict and stratified (hierarchal) charter school with a hidden administrative fundamentalist White Supremacist Christian agenda: posing as a liberal arts prep school. Because Stone Child has a White skin he is admitted to the school despite the school’s ‘fixed’ lottery admission which normally only allows a few select minority students, to conceal it’s Christian racist/fascist agenda. Discovering he is a “Pagan” child, Stone Child, a sensitive, kind and caring boy, is persecuted with covert but extreme hostility by the Christian staff at the school

Grandpa and Natooauts are a Plains Ojibwa shaman and Blackfoot shaman respectively, both have tribal kin relationships to Napi Mephisto

Spotted Buffalo is a German and the only non-native male Napi has ever known to achieve a fluent understanding of a universal shamanic concept called ‘the timing’

Napi Mephisto, father of Stone Child, is a Devil to the Whites at the school, but in fact is a mere man on an odyssey of personal evolution seeking to discover integrity in himself. He will trust people who easily betray him, including the woman he loves, and discovers how not to hate

Pompositee Succubus is a brutal White racist woman who has risen in paternal fundamentalist Christian society by adopting a male ego to compete. She is the school principal

Bozo is an example of a man who actually believes he is a good guy with credible motivations and yet has a remarkable American ‘good old boy’ chauvinism ingrained in his character, a trait he cannot see in himself. Bozo’s character, because he is always drunk, plays in the presence of women those traits many American men profoundly manifest behind the backs of women… a typical hypocrisy and common social phenomena. Although Bozo actually believes he has views sympathetic to liberal causes, he unconsciously works to destroy those causes with his personality, attitudes and approach. This is because Bozo’s draw to the cause is to stroke his own ego, more so than to do the right thing

Bozo is also a metaphor for the ‘progressives’ on the right and the left, people who do not realize the extent to which neo-con fascists play the game for keeps

Ego Priapism is a man who exhibits every sort of chauvinist, misogynist behavior imaginable. He epitomizes evil manifest in Christian behaviors

Christine is a sensitive, highly intelligent and physically beautiful teacher at the school who struggles to be free of depression stemming from child rape, is defeated by trauma, having contracted herpes from abduction and rape again as a young mother, sees her self esteem destroyed again and again, by men rejecting her because of her rape, herpes and a subsequent mastectomy. Finally, Christine is defeated once more by her own behaviors stemming from adopting aggressive male behavior to survive at the school and consequent instinctive retaliation against Napi who is in love with her

Christine, who does not know of the school administrations secret racist agenda, plays into the fascist’s hands when she deliberately flunks Napi’s son Stone Child, while taunting Napi he can do nothing about it. She does this because of her fear based anger at men and the school’s male teachers who exploit her fear when Napi has fallen in love with her. Christine, feeling sorry for herself, descends into insanity when she subsequently discovers she is actually loved by Napi, her rape and mastectomy would never have stood in the way of Napi loving Christine, the very sort of man she had finally hoped and dreamed of meeting. Or perhaps Christine is merely a cynical act

The teachers Vance, Jack and Marcus are the best friends and protégés of Ego Priapism. These characters are part of the school’s fascist/racist agenda who exploit Christine’s fear at Ego Priapism’s inspiration, seeking to use Christine to destroy ‘the devil’ Napi and drive Stone Child out of the school. Vance and Marcus are retired CIA agents, Jack is a fundamentalist Catholic

The Plot

Vance, with assistance from corrupt law enforcement, makes Napi a target of investigation at the school and in fact masterminds Christine’s abduction and rape with a view she will be manipulated to kill Napi, when her fear is exploited to suggest the ‘criminal’ Napi is bent on doing her and her child harm. Vance went on to personally attempt Napi’s murder

Napi’s dilemma: How do you help law enforcement organizations and intelligence agencies with critical information they need, when elements of the same had been coming after you hard, on false pretenses, with a view to cover their own crimes you had been in (involuntary circumstance) process of uncovering? Who/how/when to trust?

Christine mutates into a cynical cyborg, uncovered before the end of story as former CIA working together with corrupt undercover cops exploiting her tragedies while she is playing into trying to frame Napi for trumped up crimes even as Napi is blowing the lid off the real crimes by administration at the school

A happy ending??? Those have eluded me. But Napi is supposed to have learned not to hate regardless of the outcome. That either rules him out going crazy or makes him insane in a world where hate is normal

Perhaps Christine has been institutionalized by her ‘friends’ and Napi is unaware and eventually moves on to someday discover her fate

But I cannot know, and the story does not say, because her fate is unknown to me in real life. The book has morphed from a fictionalized account of real life events, to straight-up non-fiction at the end
