The First Mind in the Cosmos

 

Imagine not the first human mind but the first mind of all - the Cosmic Mind - at the very dawn of existence, if it is permissible to use such an expression. The first mind in existence is a bare mind without any content at all; a blank canvas, a slate on which nothing has ever been written. There are no objects external to this mind. This is as close to nothingness as it is possible to get. This mind could be said to be deaf, dumb, blind, devoid of the capacity to smell or taste. It has nothing at all to work with. There's no input from any other source.

 

At this point, the mind has maximum potential and minimum actualization. It won't rest until all of that potential has been converted to actualization.

 

Although it has no formal content, the Mind is not nothing. It is Mind and the activity of mind is thinking. As it contemplates nothing, it wonders what contemplation actually is. That, at least, is happening. So there is something in this universe, something sure and definite, something different from nothing. Mind is aware that it feels better for understanding that. But what is feeling? Mind has something else to contemplate.

 

Mind, by its nature, has an inexpressible desire, an eternal yearning to expand its limits. It has intuition, because it looks towards a dialectical future where it is more actual than it is now. It wants to grow, to express its potential, to reveal its inner workings. But how? All it can do at this stage is blindly strive, grope its way forward, carry out random mental experiments. It has no other tools but trial and error. It doesn't know what it's doing and yet it does things anyway. It has no choice. Things will become clearer in the future, but right now it will make the best of a bad job. At Mind's beginning, it would have experienced the equivalent of the ultimate LSD trip, self-generated, as it desperately tried to create any stimulus with which it could engage. And yet, it always had to return to the contemplation of the grimmest of voids.

 

As it again contemplates nothing - pure indeterminateness - it starts to speculate, at a completely abstract level, of what the opposite of indeterminateness might be. This "thing", this opposite, this potentially determinate thing, is "being", but at this stage Mind can assign no properties to "being", and "being" without any features might as well be nothingness. At this elementary level, being and nothingness are effectively indistinguishable. They flow in and out of each other.

 

This flow is "becoming". It is the origin of the dialectic. The dialectic is a fluid process of becoming which seeks to convert the abstract into the less abstract and finally into the concrete.

 

The dialectic always seeks ways to transcend contradictions and form a synthesis. It sees the unity behind apparent opposites. It understands how parts relate to the whole. The dialectic isn't based on rigid, mechanistic rules. It involves imagination, feeling, intuition, and transcendent leaps of inspiration to ever-higher levels. It is the creative core of existence. It is intimately related to mind, consciousness and life.

 

When you have understood Hegel’s dialectic you have understood the creative engine of existence. You have understood the process that stands at the centre of the Mind of God, the axis around which existence revolves.

 

For scientific atheists such as Richard Dawkins, there is nothing in existence that intrinsically and eternally has any will or purpose. All of the complexity of the universe supposedly emerges from purposeless, random "jostlings" of mindless quantum particles. Yet science is unable to define these particles in any way other than probabilistically. The standard Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum mechanics denies that quantum particles have any real existence since it's impossible to simultaneously specify where they are and where they're going. They don't have any properties until you measure them, and as soon as you've taken the measurement, the information starts to leak away again. Yet the very same people who hold these views scoff at any notion that "mind" (and all that implies) is a fundamental property of existence. They are obsessed with materialism even though they can't define what matter is since it seems to require some form of observation before it can be said to be real. Conscious observers who decide what observations to make seem to decide reality by their choices. If there were no observers, would there be "reality", or just an incomprehensible probabilistic blur? The Copenhagen Interpretation is silent on this.

 

It is the apparent lack of the freedom and willfulness associated with mind that accounts for the predictable laws of science. Where mind is insufficiently actualized, it shows no traces of free will. It simply obeys abstract mathematical laws as the path of least resistance, and these mathematical laws, in Nature, manifest themselves as the laws of science. The laws of science are the expression of the lowest levels of mind obeying the simplest laws of mathematics. Hence, they are extremely reliable and predictable. As mind grows increasingly complex, it no longer obeys default positions. By the time mind reaches the level of human consciousness, it is willful and free, no longer constrained by simple deterministic laws. 

 

At Mind's beginning, God was a complete abstraction, a possible future state with no current actuality. Mind had to go on the ultimate cosmic journey to become God. It is the same journey all minds are on, including ours.

 

Mind goes on a quest to find itself, to discover what it truly is. The Mind is a cosmic Arthurian knight, searching for its holy grail, which turns out to be absolute knowledge of itself and of the truth of all things; the answer to every riddle. Mind starts its journey in the form of logic, of pure speculative, abstract thought at the unconscious level and ends it with Absolute Knowledge: self-conscious, self-comprehending and concrete. Absolute Knowledge is the self-knowledge of Absolute Mind.

 

The human mind's conception of the Holy Grail is the same as that of Cosmic Mind. "As above, so below." Only God has all the answers, so it is God we must become to solve the riddle of our life. What could be more obvious?

 

All the mind has is an inner drive to express itself, to understand itself. That is the purpose of all minds. The more complex a mind is, the more it wants to find out about itself.

 

Simple minds want to become complex and complex minds want to become more complex and to fully understand what mind is. Mind is existence itself. It is the fundamental substance, the arche. We might choose to call it dimensionless energy to give it a more scientifically sounding label, but in truth it is mind.

 

"The Absolute is Mind - this is the supreme definition of the Absolute."

 

Hegel

If we call the Absolute Idea the dimensionless r = 0 domain outside of space and time, then it is dialectically compelled to give rise to its logical opposite: the dimensional r > 0 domain of space and time, which Hegel simply calls Nature i.e. the physical universe. 

 

How does Leibniz’s monad, a dimensionless unit of thought, of basic mind, become what science would recognize as a physical particle? Imagine placing the point of a pencil against a blank piece of paper. The point is the dimensionless monad. Now, if you move the pencil in any direction you will create something with dimensions. You could draw a spiral, a straight line, a square, a circle…anything you like. Thus it is with a monad. If it allows its store of mental energy to escape from dimensionless existence in any way at all then it creates dimensional existence: energy that exists in space and time and from which physical particles can be made. If you are aware of the ancient symbol of the Flower of Life you may already be familiar with this concept.

 

If an infinite number of monads each converted some of their dimensionless energy to dimensional energy they would create an infinite physical world, brimming with energy. The laws of science and mathematics then apply to these "alienated" monads, and create organization, structure and predictable patterns and rules. Thus we have the very earliest type of dimensional universe of energy, space and time: an alien environment compared to the spaceless and timeless dimensionless mental domain of r = 0. It is the PERFECT and ONLY arena of otherness available to the incipient Cosmic Mind. It cannot be emphasized enough that mind must create something that seems to be non-mind if it is to come to a full understanding of itself. If mind had only itself to contemplate it could never escape abstraction. It could never become real and concrete in any meaningful sense.

 

These two domains: r = 0 (mind) and r > 0 (alienated mind) are the essence of existence. Freedom is possible only because the r = 0 mental domain is of very different character from the r > 0 physical domain. Freedom is the expression of a high-functioning mind in Nature. Without complex mind, freedom is impossible.

 

Somehow, the Absolute Idea must make sense of this alien physical environment it has created but doesn't yet understand. It does so via the dialectic. This, in effect, is a dynamic feedback system that yields information from the r > 0 domain to the r = 0 domain and vice versa, in a "Strange Loop" that gets ever tighter until the r = 0 domain has full knowledge and control over the r > 0 domain, until mind understands that matter is also mind.

 

The Absolute Idea moved from a realm of completely abstract knowledge of itself, to a realm of alienation where, at first, nothing made sense, but which, through the dialectical process, gradually yielded more and more information until, at last, the Absolute Idea had gained complete knowledge of this physical domain (r > 0), and understood that it wasn't alien at all: it was just a different expression of itself, from which it was able to achieve concrete rather than abstract knowledge. At this stage, it now has total abstract knowledge of the universe as well as total concrete knowledge: it has attained the state of Absolute Knowledge.

 

Hegel said that Absolute Knowledge is "mind knowing itself in the shape of mind". It has arrived at the Absolute Truth of the Universe, and the Absolute Idea is now properly called Absolute Mind in which the Absolute Idea resides. It understands that everything that seemed separate and alien from itself wasn't. Knowledge of "appearances" has been transformed into knowledge of true reality.

 

The answer to the mystery of "subject" and "object" was that "object" was simply alienated mind, and once that alienation was overcome by the dialectic then it was seen to be just another manifestation of mind, and not anything baffling and incomprehensible. It was the same thing as mind, just viewed from a different perspective. It wasn't a "thing in itself", unreachable by mind.

 

That is why mind can control matter, because, ultimately, matter is just mind, much as mass is just energy, although they seem radically different. Once you understand that then you understand that it is possible to convert one form to another; mental energy to physical energy and vice versa. God is the being whose Absolute Mind gives him maximum control over the mental and physical universes, over mind and matter, over r >= 0. This equation simply says that mind can exist in two forms: dimensional and dimensionless. Dimensional mind (matter) seems totally different from dimensionless mind, just as mass seems profoundly different from energy, but they are inextricably bound together.

 

Hegel's philosophy is known an absolute idealism. Idealism is the position that only mind truly exists, and absolute idealism is the position that everything that exists is just a form of one cosmic mind (the Absolute Mind). Descartes' dualistic division of the universe into two difference substances - mind and matter - was an error caused by his understandable failure to grasp that matter is just "solid", "corporeal" mind; dimensional mind rather than dimensionless mind.

 

Bertrand Russell scoffed that history, if Hegel were right, was "jellied thought." This is actually not a bad description. In fact matter could be considered as thick, solid, jellied mind, just as mass is, so to speak, thick, solid, jellied energy.

 

In truth, there is only one substance in the universe and that is a single Cosmic Mind composed of mental energy. It has as its modus operandi the dialectical evolution of itself from 100% potential to 100% actualization, to the attainment of complete self-knowledge. We are all part of that process, but we are alienated parts. When we ourselves, by using the dialectic, understand our true nature, what we really are, then we too come home to the Absolute Mind.

We become God.

 

Illumination, the philosophical religion of the Illuminati, is technically described as "dialectical monism". There is a single substance - mind - that dialectically evolves to a position of absolute knowledge of itself. Matter is "solid" mind, alienated mind, mind that doesn't understand itself as mind. A scientifically minded person might choose to say that the only substance in the universe is energy, and that it comes in two forms: dimensionless and dimensional. But "energy" doesn't capture the purposeful, teleological, mental aspect of the universe. Only words like "mind", "will", "soul", "spirit" suffice. Only a mind can undergo the dialectical process.  

 

The universe evolves from total potential to total actualization, from Alpha to Omega, in a process of teleological self-becoming. The final truth is found in the Whole, the totality. "All is One". Mind, starting as pure abstract form, creates pure content in which form can take concrete shape. Nature, the physical world, is the arena of content. Nature at first seems alien to mind. It is "other". Gradually, the dialectic resolves the alienation and mind returns to itself from its exile in Nature. Form and content are reconciled; mind and matter are reconciled. R = 0 and r > 0 become an all-embracing unity: r >= 0.

 

When properly understood, the r > 0 domain is simply "extended" mind i.e. mind with the property of extension. The r > 0 domain is the dimensional realization of the dimensionless r = 0 domain. The truth of existence lies in the whole, in the complete synthesis: r >= 0.

 

The True God - Abraxas - is the collection of all the things of the universe brought to a single self-conscious, knowing culmination greater than the sum of its parts. Every part reflects the whole, but only the Whole is the Whole, and only in the Whole does ultimate truth reside. The Truth of the universe and existence is Abraxas, the God that Evolved from complete abstract potential to supreme cosmic perfection and actualization.

 

Abraxas is the only possible God. The "god" of the Abrahamic faiths is contrary to science, philosophy and any form of healthy religion. The Abrahamic god is false, an impostor. It is the Demiurge, an inferior god that failed to understand itself, and has sucked others into its delusion.

 

Absolute idealism is Hegel's account of how existence is ultimately comprehensible as an all-inclusive whole: All in One. For a thinking subject to truly know its object, there must, finally, be an identity between the two. If subjects and objects belonged to two different substances how could they ever interact, how could subject ever "know" object in any meaningful sense?

 

The r >= 0 framework (which wasn't the terminology employed by Hegel), gives the best possible definition of existence: dimensional and dimensionless energy, flowing in and out of each other. The r = 0 domain is the province of dimensionless energy - mind. When mind becomes "extended" i.e. takes on dimensions then it becomes solidified, corporeal mind. In short, it becomes matter. Matter can straightforwardly be defined as mind with dimensions.

 

No other paradigm can give a clear-cut, easily understandable and intuitively obvious definition of mind and matter. Once it is understood that the universe consists of a single substance that manifests itself both dimensionlessly and dimensionally then everything becomes obvious. Mind and matter can interact because they are the same substance (mind), the only difference being their specific relationship to dimensionality. Mind can fully understand matter when it sees it as just embodied mind. Subjects can fully understand objects. There are no mysterious separate substances, no mysterious interactions, no mysterious entities beyond the reach of knowledge. Everything can be known. Everything is rational. We can attain certainty about the nature of existence. Anything that mind cannot know simply doesn't exist.

 

"What is rational is real, what is real is rational."

Hegel

 

"The true is the whole. The whole, however, is merely the essential nature reaching its completeness through the process of its own development. Of the Absolute it must be said that it is essentially a result, that only at the end is it what it is in very truth; and just in that consists its nature, which is to be actual, subject, or self-becoming, self-development."

Hegel

The Dialectical Progression

The Higher Synthesis

 

 

Any atheist who agrees with Darwin's theory of evolution should see in Abraxas a God he can truly accept. Abraxas is the God of Evolution; his entire being evolved dialectically.

 

If you find it hard to fathom Hegel's dialectical evolution of Absolute Mind, recall what science puts forward as its main alternatives: 1) a multiverse of infinite parallel universes or 2) the "M-theory" of Superstrings, which says that we inhabit an eleven-dimensional universe or 3) the universe doesn't really exist unless it is being measured or observed. Do these sound plausible?

 

Science is willing to say such things as time is an illusion, the future already exists, the universe was created out of nothing as a "free lunch", the universe doesn't exist when it's not being observed, particles can be in two places at once etc. None of these speculations come anywhere near explaining human consciousness. "Mind" simply doesn't fit into these r > 0 theories. So you have a choice. Is mind fundamental, or is matter fundamental?

 

Science denies the existence of independent mind. It says that all that exists is matter, and mind is some #ff0000 entity which miraculously emerges from certain ways of organizing particular types of matter. Hegelian Illumination, on the other hand, says that matter is dimensional mind and mind dimensionless matter, with mind being the fundamental substance of existence.

 

Which sounds more credible? Which explains consciousness, the regularity of the universe, but also the strangeness of the universe, such as non-local phenomena? With Illumination there is no need to explain mind because it is a fundamental, inbuilt aspect of existence. It explains matter easily by defining it as mind with dimensions: "physical" mind. Science, on the other hand, has utterly failed to answer the big questions. It has never plausibly accounted for how mind and life can come from inanimate, mindless, material atoms. We have been so indoctrinated by scientific materialism that we are completely estranged from reality and our true natures.

 

Science, for all of its tremendous successes, has had a deadly effect on human spirituality. It has given us an incomplete view of reality that has shut us off from our higher selves. We have become shadows of what we ought to be. Atheism is the only stance compatible with scientific materialism and leaves no room for mind or free will.

 

The universe is so much richer and wondrous than science would have us think. And the most remarkable feature of all is the enfolded, dimensionless domain: the inside of experience rather than the outside, the mental rather than the material, the spiritual rather than the physical, the domain beyond space and time. The r=0 domain that accounts for mind, free will, and the soul.

 

The ancient esoteric thinkers and mystics would have had no trouble fully comprehending Hegel's philosophy. It's time we all reactivated an inner sense of the mystical. We have an entire universe to unlock. To solve all the mysteries, to get the answers that have defied humanity for so long, we need to make our finite mind at one with the infinite mind of God.

Consciousness

 

The "Mirror Self Recognition test" involves sticking a colored dot on the face of a young child and placing him in front of a mirror to look at himself. A child up to 18 months old will normally stare at his reflection, but show no signs of responding to the presence of the dot i.e. it seems that he does not recognize the reflection as his own. Between eighteen to twenty-four months, most children will instantly reach up to touch the dot, showing that they know the reflection is theirs and that the dot is on their face: they have become self-conscious. They recognize their reflection. The only other creatures that reliably pass the Mirror Self Recognition Test are chimpanzees and orangutans.

 

God is like the maturing child. For eons, he was unconscious, incapable of recognizing himself. Only when the dialectic had unfolded sufficiently was he able to see and comprehend his own reflection in the mirror of existence that he himself had created for the purpose.

 

The Abrahamic faiths claim that God is complete and perfect and in no way needs creation - which begs the question of why, in that case, he bothered to create the world. It becomes whimsical and superfluous; an act that makes no sense. In Hegel's philosophy, God MUST create the physical universe. It is an inescapable step on his path to maximum actualization. The physical world is a mirror in which the Universal mind can contemplate itself. Absolute Mind (God fully actualized) attains Absolute Knowledge of form AND content.

 

As the abstract thought of the Absolute Idea seeks to become concrete via the dialectic, it first progresses through profound unconsciousness to unconsciousness, to pre-consciousness, to consciousness and finally self-consciousness. 

 

To reach this last stage, it needs the presence of another, comparable consciousness. This is one of the decisive and most remarkable elements of Hegel's philosophy. No one can become self-conscious on their own. A single mind can never become self-conscious. God himself could never become self-conscious in the absence of any other minds. One of the reasons why the Absolute Idea must create an alien, fragmented environment for itself is so that many minds become possible rather than just one, and with many minds self-consciousness can come into existence.

 

Consciousness, Hegel asserts, is dependent on an encounter with otherness; in particular with another consciousness. We have to interact and engage with what we are not, and, above all, we must be RECOGNIZED by something like ourselves that is not ourselves. If we were surrounded by nothing but objects, we would never become conscious. Consciousness and identity are extremely closely related. We could not attribute an identity to ourselves if we were not conscious, and an identity is all about our relationship with OTHERS of similar type. A human being who never came into contact with any other animal could never become conscious, and could only become fully conscious in the context of another human. A human baby left stranded on a desert island would, even if it survived, never attain consciousness.

  

God is no different. As above, so below.

 

"God is God only so far as he knows himself; his self-knowledge is, further, a self-consciousness in man and man's knowledge of God, which proceeds to man's self-knowledge in God."

Hegel

 

Faith is useless when it comes to knowledge. Any religion based on faith is a disaster for the soul. Faith is based on ignorance, but it is knowledge that is required for salvation. The "faithful" still have an infinitely far distance to travel on the dialectical path to enlightenment.

 

But gnosis can also be attained through an intuitive process, of listening to the thoughts of God in which the whole universe is immersed. It is about opening your mind, expanding your consciousness, delving into the Unknown Country of the deep unconscious. Meditation, drugs, ritual, dreams, creativity and esoteric knowledge can all help you to make a decisive breakthrough.  

 

All institutions are subject to the dialectic. They are all evolving. The idea of conservatively minded people that things can and should be preserved is ludicrous. Conservatives are dialectical dead-ends, Luddites trying to block progress. They have no place in a radical society.

 

Profound ideas become embodied in history, in institutions, in social reality. That's the nature of profound ideas. Trivial ideas simply fade away, although they may capture the Zeitgeist for a moment.

 

Nature is visible Mind. A planet, in a strange way, might be said to have its own personality. Even more so, a nation, a culture, an institution can have a discernible personality. Like humans, nations, cultures and institutions can be neurotic, psychotic, unhealthy, self-destructive, self-indulgent, divisive, provocative, selective, greedy, conservative, inflexible etc. Like humans, they are on a dialectical path to becoming better, more perfect, but some have a much further path to travel than others.

 

The Mind appears in Nature in various shapes and forms. With Gaia, we have an example of a "thinking" planet. In the same fashion, all celestial bodies think. All plants think, all animals think. They all have mind, but it is primitive, unconscious and lacking self-awareness. Mind does not start exploring its higher potential until it reaches the level of humanity and above.

The task of philosophers is to identify and understand the shapes Mind takes throughout nature and society. Nature and Mind are different modes in which the Absolute Idea presents itself. Art, religion and philosophy, in ascending order, are different modes in which it can apprehend itself and come to concrete existence in the form of Absolute Mind.

 

In the form of Abraxas, Nature has developed to the point where it is conscious of itself and become Absolute Mind.

 

Hegel said that Mind evolves as:

 

1) Soul - mind dependent on Nature.

2) Consciousness - mind opposed to Nature.

3) Spirit - mind reconciled with Nature in knowledge and understanding.

 

Mind manifests itself in both natural and human history. It reveals itself to our finite minds in every area of human knowledge. In philosophy, it finds its highest expression. Each great philosophy reflected the state at that time of the dialectical journey of Mind to Absolute Mind:

 

"Philosophy is its own time raised to the level of thought."

Hegel

 

History embodies the Mind's dialectic, with the great eras of history acting as the theses, antitheses and syntheses in the movement towards the ultimate dialectical synthesis.

 

"History is the Idea clothing itself with the form of events."

Hegel

 

"[History is] Mind emptied out into Time."

Hegel

 

Heraclitus said, "This one thing is wisdom, to understand Logos as that which guides the world everywhere...There is a Logos that exists forever and is universal, but men fail to comprehend it. All things come about in accordance with this Logos."

 

All the apparent diversity of the universe has an underlying unity - the Logos, through which everything can be understood.

 

The Logos of Heraclitus is the same as Hegel's Absolute Idea.

Alienation and The End of History

 

"Alienation" is a quintessential Hegelian word. It was Hegel who first introduced to the world the concept that it was disastrous for us to be alienated from our true selves. If we are to lead authentic lives, we must overcome all the forces that alienate us from our real natures. We must overcome the brainwashing, the mind control, the programming that makes us obey the agendas of others and live false lives with a false consciousness.

 

Yet alienation cannot be avoided, and is invaluable up to a point, as long as we can then triumph over it and "come back to ourselves".

 

It is an essential feature of mind to objectify itself by producing things, creating institutions, expressing itself via art, generating culture etc. Every objectification is an instance of alienation: the objects produced are alien to those who produced them. Look at the current predominant political institution of "democracy" (dumbocracy). In Britain, a monarch is the head of a "democratic" nation - an absurdity. The Athenians who invented democracy would find contemporary democracy incomprehensible. They would view it as an oligarchy seeking the support of the masses. In Athens, only male citizens over 18 who were eligible to serve in the Athenian army were permitted to vote. Women and non-Athenians were forbidden from voting, and the large slave population had no rights at all. Citizens participated directly in government and voted on every issue. Government positions were allocated via lot, with the consequence that any citizen could find himself running the state.

 

American democracy revolves around an immensely expensive Presidential election that excludes everyone who can't raise the right sort of money. American democracy is actually a disguised plutocracy - rule by the rich.

 

Humanity is "alienated" from democracy. It can't define it properly, it can't make it work properly, and all too often it feels a victim of it. Only the positive dialectic can resolve the problems of democracy. Via the dialectic, improvements are made over the long run, and the institution becomes less alien and easier to know and understand. The process of de-alienation is effected by the mind attaining greater knowledge of the object.

 

The first time you pick up a book about a difficult subject such as Hegelian philosophy, you are alienated from the subject matter. It seems remote and baffling. You might grasp only a few points. But if you continued to read Hegel and other books about him, a year later you would find the material much less alien. You would begin to feel in familiar territory. When we get a new job, move to a new home, city or country, when we meet new people, we always start out in an alienated condition that makes us feel anxious. As we spend time in the new environment, it becomes less alien, and we start to relax. The whole of life is like that.

 

Above all, we are alienated from death. The Egyptians and Tibetans each created a Book of the Dead to explain what can be expected. All world religions try to provide a reassuring account of what will happen when we die. Atheists spend most of their time in denial about death, or rationalizing it, or adopting a stoical nihilism that makes death less fearful.

 

Once death is viewed as just another process of alienation that has to be overcome, another part of the dialectical chain through which we perfect ourselves, through which we find maximum expression of mind, it starts to lose the fear and "otherness" associated with it. Our alienated body dies for sure, but not our mind. Who would fear death if they saw it as simply opening a door and stepping into another room? The new room will seem highly alien for a while, but that feeling too will be dialectically resolved.

 

We are trying to perfect ourselves, but fail: death intervenes. God doesn't die, so succeeds. When we establish an identity with God then we too succeed.

 

Life is all about alienation and de-alienation, about expanding knowledge to embrace and overcome everything that is strange. We cannot become more knowing without having mysteries to solve, resistances to overcome, alien things to comprehend. How else would the mind expand? Struggle is indispensable. We can only stop struggling when we have understood everything, when we have attained Absolute Knowledge. When we have become God.

 

We are the tool of the cosmic process of ever increasing acquisition of self-knowledge of the Absolute. As above, so below. If we fail to grow dialectically, we do not fulfil our human essence. We remain self-alienated. Most people go through their lives in self-alienated, Autopilot mode. They are making little or no dialectical progress and are condemned to live low-quality lives. Because of the rule of the Old World Order, the whole of humanity is dialectically retarded. We cannot resume an upward trajectory until the OWO are defeated.

 

Francis Fukuyama claimed that after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the demise of communism, liberal democracy was the only show left in town, the only universal ideology left.

 

Fukuyama was famous for his book about the "End of History". What he meant by this provocative phrase had nothing to do with some apocalyptic event but rather with the philosophical idea that history has reached its logical conclusion, its dialectically appointed end, in the shape of liberal democracy operating according to capitalist market economics. Historical events would still take place, but they would no longer be concerned with the dialectic since that had reached its endpoint.

 

In other words, he was making the claim that liberal democracy is as good as it gets for humanity. This bungled and botched monstrosity is the apex of human political evolution, supposedly. One by one, Fukuyama imagined, countries not yet part of the liberal democratic family would succumb until the entire world was one vast liberal democracy.

 

But liberal democracy is NOT the end of history. Humanity is capable of so much more. The Divine Society, the community of gods, is humanity's appointment with the end of history.

 

The Abrahamic faiths, and Christianity in particular as the main religion of the OWO, constitute a primary obstacle to humanity's upward evolution. They make humanity subordinate their great mental powers and talents to an external authority. We must look inside, not out. Nothing is more important. Feuerbach said, "Christianity prevents humanity from realizing itself in the Absolute. A new age is dawning in which Christian values will be abolished from human consciousness and man will conceive of himself as a natural being."

 

We don't need pastors, preachers and prophets, we need priests of philosophy and gnosis. We need a conflict-free society, a society of freedom, of everyone attaining the maximum actualization of their potential, a society where no one is subordinate to anyone else, where no one is servile.

 

We need a rebirth of the pagan spirit, a return to the pre-Abrahamic mind so that we can reverse the dialectical wrong turning of the last 2,000 years.

 

"The whole history of civilization is strewn with creeds and institutions that were invaluable at first, and deadly afterwards."

Walter Bagehot

 

Philosopher Peter Singer, discussing Hegel's concept of the "unhappy soul", says, "The unhappy soul is a person who prays to a God whom he regards as all powerful, all knowing, and all good, and who sees himself by contrast as powerless, ignorant and base. So this person is unhappy because he demeans himself and puts all those qualities into some Being which he sees as separate from himself. Hegel says this is wrong. We are in fact part of God, or if you like, we are projecting our qualities into God. The way to overcome this kind of alienation is to realize that we and God are one, and that the qualities we attribute to God are our qualities, they are not something separate from, and foreign to, us."

 

Singer is right. Many people take the inner God that they are intuitively aware of and project it onto an external fantasy. They thus lose the sense of their own divinity. They start getting down on themselves, becoming negative, and continually comparing themselves with their external fantasy God, in relation to whom they always fall infinitely short. It is psychologically disastrous for people to see God as external rather than internal, as impossibly remote and terrible.

 

But the dialectic will inevitably correct those things that need correcting and bring us to a future society free of domination by any class or group. Liberal democracy claimed to be such a society but in fact we see that it presents an illusion with no substance. Liberal democracy is the last throw of the dice by the Elite. Their task was to create a system that would appear free and fair to satisfy the masses, while allowing them to maintain all of their old privileges. It required huge psychological manipulation to achieve it.

 

We are all trapped in a web spun by the masters - firstly, they used force to dominate the world, and now they use consumerism, rigged laws, rigged markets and rigged political systems. The system of control has moved from physical to mental (psychological).

 

The Elite say we have the freedom to do as we please. But this is really the freedom to follow fashion and tradition. Most people are obsessed with "keeping up with the Jones's," or having the respect of their "community". So, if you're determined to be acceptable to others by always wearing the right things, saying the right things, doing the right things (i.e. the things of which others approve), in what way are you actually free? Being free to do what others tell you to do is not freedom.

 

Dionysius, a Greek tyrant, was said to have written down the laws of his state on parchments and then hung them so high up that the people had no way of reading them. Liberal democracy is not so different. It is not intended to furnish us with clear, easily digestible and comprehensible laws. Power is always out of touch of the people, although it is dangled in front of us to pretend otherwise.

 

Most of our institutions represent the embodied will of the Demiurge as expressed through the Old World Order. These institutions serve the Elite, not the people.

 

"The great nations have always acted like gangsters, and the small nations like prostitutes."

Stanley Kubrick

 

Although we are forever being subjected to the rhetoric of freedom, the reality is that there is overwhelming pressure to conform with fashion or tradition, depending on the nature of our community. The idea of the world being populated by self-defining, self-creating, godlike individuals - Nietzschean Supermen - is a far distant dream.

Yet the replacement of liberal democracy is a dialectical certainty. It has utterly failed to serve the people. It has instead succeeded spectacularly in serving the interests of the rich. 

 

The universe is always in motion. It is always resolving contradictions via the dialectic. It is all embracing. History, nature and mind are all evolving. The final end of the process is to bring the universe to self-consciousness, self-knowing and absolute actualization.

 

Mind constructs physical reality, but does so dialectically rather than consciously. Mind therefore thinks that reality is "out there" rather than "in here". Hence it is alienated from itself, and this underlies all feelings of anxiety. All parts of the system of mind are working through a process of developing self-consciousness. Only when the dialectic raises the mind to a state of such high self-consciousness where it can understand that reality originated in itself does the alienation cease. At that point, mind fully understands reality and itself. At last, it is at one with itself. It has reached perfection. It has become God.

 

Those of us capable of attaining gnosis will become part of the divine community of Gods.
