Luc Besson has that rare, magical quality where his films teeter on the edge of being extremely mediocre and/or somewhat entertaining.  Similar themes run through his work, from La Femme Nikita to The Professional to The Fifth Element to The Messenger, focusing on the feminized goddess archetype rising above all adversity, in ferocious neo-Darwinian fashion.  Lucy is the climax of this goddess myth, wherein Scarlett Johansson plays an inadvertent drug mule, “Lucy,” roped into an international conspiracy that quickly departs into something resembling The Matrix meets Limitless meets 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I suppose it’s difficult to get away from being influenced by the top science fiction films, but at a certain point, audiences can only see so many Matrix-y bullet stopping scenes, and replacing Keanu with a hot chick doesn’t make it any better.  Regardless, the transhumanist plot is really the focus here, as the premise is basically this: Since humans only use a small portion of their latent brainpower, what would happen if a human could use all 100%?  And what if Morgan Freeman, Hollywood’s imagined, soulful voice of God/science, could help facilitate that ascent of (wo)man to godhood?  As I observed this silly plot, I was reminded of Gravity, where references to Darwinian apotheosis also abound, as woman takes humanity to the next level by a punctuated equilibrium jump in the evolutionary spectrum.  Here, sweet Scarlett will catapult us ahead to the vaginal tech utopia.

Like The Fifth Element, where Milla Jovovich plays a feminine incarnation of the aether, or quintessence, Lucy becomes the feminine incarnation of reason and robotic rationality as she gradually ascends into the adoption of taking on what classical theology has called the incommunicable attributes of God: omniscience and omnipresence.  We never know if Lucy attains to omnibenevolence. The film continually references Darwinian process, highlighting the survival of the fittest, aeons of slow mutation, and Lucy, the laughable supposed first chimp, who was a female.  Sorry, my fellow men, as Besson would have us understand, men are not preeminent in reason, nor are men the real power that propels order and civilization, as that exalted role is reserved for the first Lucy, the imagined female chimp, and the last Lucy, Scarlett Johansson.

Knowledge Without Wisdom: Phaethon and Technocracy

Gustave Moreau's Phaethon.

Gustave Moreau’s Phaethon.

By: Jay

In our emergent technocracy we are submerged in a sea of knowledge.  Modern wonders reach their apex in the readily-available stores of knowledge at anyone’s fingertips.  Given this seemingly magical commodity was heretofore unknown to vast swaths of now dead humanity, one would think man would jump at the opportunity to educate himself on any and every topic.  Yet the reality is quite the contrary, as such a notion of aspiring, latent human potential had its origin in the universalized doctrine of “human reason” bequeathed to us from the Enlightenment.   The vast online Alexandrian databases are only perused by a few, with the majority of humanity preferring to opt for a wasted life of the meaningless and mundane.  In a strange twist that must baffle the modern progressive, humanity has devolved with the advent of their imagined tech utopia, not risen to the heights of transcendence.  The question arises – what is the purpose of never ending streams of knowledge, without wisdom?

Before considering that question, we have to ask how we arrived at this point.  For several hundred years, Western man in particular has been firmly convinced of the dogma that humans are blank slates awaiting only the right imprinting, the perfected external educational stimulant, and when the hallowed secular social order finally gets it just right, man would achieve his Promethean triumph.  When the coming technocracy appears, universal education and global democratic republics full of enlightened, informed citizenry will lead the way into the great ascent to godhood.   With a rising erection, the Enlightenment evangelists even hoped a fully global government would be conjured up, like some benevolent republican idealistic version of the Incarnation out of the Kantian noumena.  Instead, it becomes more apparent each day that these ideologues were either duped or consciously evil.   The presuppositions of existing modernity and its structures of power are still operating as if the Enlightenment “truths” are axiomatic givens – enshrined discoveries of the heroes of science that are no longer in question, as the verdict of reason and history are fully and ever vindicated.  The hard truth is that the Enlightenment ideologues were not only fundamentally wrong, but they were funded by the banking cartel for the purpose of social disorder and reorganization.  The dark lords of cash and subversive secret societies atop the idiot demagogues and salesmen were quite cognizant of the stupidity of such notions of Enlightenment tabula rasa anthropology, nevertheless, the endless stream of Dantons won out and even still never go away.  All the while, the money power laughs a hearty satanic cackle as the centuries pass by.

And so here we a couple hundred years after 1789 and 1776 and what do we see?  We see the intelligenstia operating as if physics and empiricism are actually explanatory “grand narratives.”  In total hypocrisy, labeling religion a fictitious “grand narrative” that only existed because it had explanatory power and satiated human fears, these intellectually dishonest liars erected their own alternative narrative that daily assaults me, and which I gleefully dissect on a daily basis: The new Gospel of human ascent through “science.”  One thinks here of August Comte’s patterned view of history where man passes from gradual stages of enlightenment, from primitive superstition and paganism, to rational monotheism, to philosophy and metaphysics, to physics and “social science.”  Although nothing could be further from the truth as regards the actual working of science and the actual structures of human social order and history, this mythology is still modernity’s Heilsgeschichte. 

For Jurgen Habermas, in his Theory and Practice,  the Frankfurt School becomes the praxis for the dark side strategy, whose own work is a manifestation of the angst of grappling with the course of the never ending “revolution,” from 1776/1789 onwards, looking into the future for the social engineers to fix man through his needed destruction.  I cite Habermas because he is a major Marxist Frankfurt School thinker who links the destruction of the old world to the French and American revolutionaries.  Habermas and the rest of his ilk like Horkheimer and Adorno, who worked with Western oligarchs and British establishment to destroy Western social order, export their weaponized disintegration to the rest of the globe.  They are significant for demonstrating that evil is not merely an organic, chaotic force that just occurs.  On the contrary, evil is very much concentrated, organzied and cunning in its tactics.  The key point here is that this technocratic rewriting is a strategic plan for total destruction that had to first be preceded by centuries of revolution and disintegration, prior to what Bertrand Russell and Aldous Huxley called “the final revolution,” intending by this the great revolution against man himself.  It is organized, structured, full spectrum subversion, inversion and dominance.

Creation Metaphysics and “A Single Unified Science”

Creation Icon.

I have written on scientism lately, and in the archives several more critiques of scientism and naïve empiricism (its presupposition) are available.  The question then arises as to how are we to replace this bad, contradictory narrative of man’s “progress” with something better.  Is there an answer elsewhere?  Can claims of religious belief and theology be rational?  Are they not merely leaps of faith, with no reason behind them?  In short, there are answers and religious claims are just as warranted as a “scientific” claim, and sometimes more so.  When we consider “warranted” beliefs, as they are often termed in philosophy, we can see alternate explanations that are far superior to the reductionist materialism of our day.

It is my thesis that there is an alternate metaphysics that is suppressed by the centralized western establishment that has allowed a covert advancement in highly complex technologies, while the ignorant public have been given a mass consumption physics and worldview that is ultimately a dead-end (materialism).  One of the chief arguments I fall back on is the fact that highly advanced technologies are based on a rigorous, formal logic that is ordered and perfectly systematic.  Since logic itself, which forms the basis and presupposition of those systems, is not, and cannot be “matter,” the central narrative explanation of reality given by modern academia for man’s origins, “Enlightenment,” and so-called scientific advance is completely wrong.

This alternate metaphysics is closer to what is found in aspects of Platonism and Eastern Orthodox theology, and this is likely what informed Tesla to be so successful with his inventions, despite his latter days of theosophy.  I do not intend to advocate all of Platonism or Pythagoreanism or later developments in Plato’s students, but rather when considering foundational philosophical presuppositional commitments and assumptions, the ideas of thinkers closer to this tradition are more correct than those of an atomistic, materialist bent.  Modern quantum thinkers generally tend to be open about “Platonic” theories of metaphysics matching up to their discoveries, while materialistic science is utterly bankrupt at providing any coherent account of reality.

One of the founding fathers of quantum physics, Werner Heisenberg, stated:

“In the philosophy of Democritus the atoms are eternal and indestructible units of matter, they can never be transformed into each other. With regard to this question modern physics takes a definite stand against the materialism of Democritus and for Plato and the Pythagoreans. The elementary particles are certainly not eternal and indestructible units of matter, they can actually be transformed into each other. As a matter of fact, if two such particles, moving through space with a very high kinetic energy, collide, then many new elementary particles may be created from the available energy and the old particles may have disappeared in the collision. Such events have been frequently observed and offer the best proof that all particles are made of the same substance: energy. But the resemblance of the modern views to those of Plato and the Pythagoreans can be carried somewhat further. The elementary particles in Plato’s Timaeus are finally not substance but mathematical forms.

Desolation & Redemption

Originally posted on The Soul of the East:

In the course of what is now titled Continental Philosophy, three figures stand out as preeminent thinkers able to probe the innermost depths of the human psyche in a way previously unknown since perhaps Shakespeare: Soren Kierkegaard, Friedrich Nietzsche and Fyodor Dostoevsky.   These three were more or less contemporaries, and all shared a similar fascinating interest—that of tearing down the ideological idols of their day, and in particular, the facade the individual post-Enlightenment “modern man” conceived himself to be.  While these men certainly had differing worldviews and would likely have debated such grand topics as the precise meaning of God and man’s relation to Him in the universe, they shared a similar distaste for hypocrisy, lies and falsehood, and made it partly their authorial iconoclastic goal to tear away such veils.

Francis Bacon had made it his goal as an early Enlightenment luminary to tear down what he perceived…

Noah (2014) – Esoteric Analysis

Noah film poster.

Noah film poster.

By: Jay

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah has become the talk of the Internet and religious folk.  As a film, I found it flawed and a little odd in its pacing, but on a deeper level, there is plenty to mine.  Most analyses that focus on the deeper elements come from the evangelical right, up in arms about the “lack of biblical” elements, and some even saying it is blasphemous and “gnostic.”  Readers of Jay’s Analysis know I have no hesitation in slapping the gnostic label on Hollywood’s latest, yet here I am not so eager.   It’s not that the film has no gnostic elements – there are some.  It’s that the film is utilizing kabbalistic  and Jewish oral tradition, which I think is the source for much of the confusion.

Aronofsky did make Pi, which is also based around kabbalistic ideas, particularly numerology and its relation to God.  I am very interested in numerology and how it relates to God, yet on a personal level I just didn’t connect with Pi.  It’s not a bad film, I just found it depressing.  The relevance here is that Pi shows Aronofsky is very much a man of Jewish mysticism and esoterism, despite his claim to be an atheist.   So, more than containing a lot of “gnosticism,” Noah contains a lot of kabbalism, as well as ideas from the Bible, the Book of Enoch, and Jewish midrash.  I don’t pretend to be an expert in these areas, but I have far more familiarity than most.

Overall, I liked the film.  There is nothing wrong with looking beyond there mere text to the oral tradition and the wider context that surrounds the classical biblical narratives.  Evangelicals that were thrown into a frenzy are generally unaware that the “environmental” message was, in fact, accurate.  In the biblical narrative, Noah and his sons had not yet begun eating flesh.  Longevity was much greater due to being still relatively close chronologically to the Edenic state.  Granted, the film took liberties with giving Noah a period of doubting where he thinks he may not have done correctly, since it appeared for a time that God wanted all humanity dead.  Noah was a man, not a superhero.  I think it is appropriate, like all the saints of Genesis, he is portrayed as a flawed man.  Like the rest of the prophets, Noah was not perfect.

Egyptian Mysteries of God and Energy in Relation to Modern Geopolitics

God made the eye. It is not "evil." The mysteries of creation and energy are contained within it.

God made the eye. It is not “evil.” The mysteries of creation and energy are contained within it.

…I will show you a great mystery.

“The Cosmos moves within the very life of eternity, and is contained in that very eternity whence all life issues. And for this reason it is impossible that it should at any time come to a stand, or be destroyed, since it is walled in and bound together, so to speak, by eternal life.”
Asclepius III, 29c.

By: Jay

Energy is not something pondered by most, yet energy is one of the most fundamental aspects of reality and figures prominently in physics, metaphysics and theology.  But what might a fundamental aspect of metaphysics have to do with geo-politics?  Is there a correlation between energy and its process and social and political trends and movements? I think there is, and in this article I intend to lay it out.  Movement itself is energetic.  All movement represents energy in motion, from one state of affairs to another.  In theology we speak of God’s active energies or attributes are the ultimate causation and ground of being in the universe, meaning energy itself is the locus of power.  Speed also factors into this, since speed is a certain rate of energetic action.  Modernity has seen the increase of the speed of motion due to the advancement of technology: both matter, information and persons are all able to move much faster and in much greater quantity than ever before.

Before considering questions of modern and future energy expectations, I would like to highlight an argument I’ve made a few times now concerning the ancient Egyptian hermetic notions, and how their archetypal religious symbols encoded basic principles of quantum physics and the energetic process.  As many esotericists and traditionalist thinkers have commented, it seems as if ages or eras of history also partake of cosmic processes or aeons.  Eastern writers speak of “kali yuga,” where proper roles of hierarchy and caste are reversed.   Spengler spoke of civilizations as having an organic lifespan and Western man as “Faustian Man.”  My thesis here is that the cyclical process of energy itself gives a model of ages, too.  If movement is energetic, then history and time also reduce to energetic movement.

The basic triadic structure, utilizing the vesica piscis.

I have mentioned in the past that the rites of the gods encode secrets of nature.  One of the best examples of this is the mythology of Isis, Apophis and Osiris, whose mythology includes the principles of life and energy itself.  Isis is the feminine principle of nature/energy extended in space and time.  Apophis represents the principle of destruction and entropy, and Osiris represents the reemergence of energetic loss towards eternity to a higher state of eternality and immortality.   The ancient Near Eastern symbol of IAO was representative of this formula, and when considered in comparison to the Pythagorean monad, dyad and triad, the same imagery is found to encode the same formulae.  The point or monad extends to the dyad, with the two points connected forming a line.  The line either has a circumference drawn around it and/or extends to a third point.  It can also form a vesica piscis, or an eye.

The monad extends, utilizing the generative principle, forming IAO.

The eye is also a circle with a dot in the middle, as well as a circle surrounding a point or an extended line.  This is the meaning of the obelisk in the circle, which, when viewed from above (as the gods would have seen it) is also a dot in a circle.  Quantum physicist Brian Greene discusses the fundamental energetic nature of reality as mirroring the binary computer model as follows:

Unfortunately, we have been programmed and conditioned from the earliest years to not believe in the existence, or even the possibility, of large-scale conspiracies.  Students of history learn in introductory courses that there are three views of the philosophy of history.  First, the random contingency view in which historical events are merely “one damn thing after another” (as one of my professors so elegantly stated), with no apparent reason or causal significance. Second, the so-called “great man” view, in which key religious and political figures cause certain landmark events with history revolving around these figures, such as a Napoleon or a Caesar.  The third and least popular is the providential or conspiratorial view.  In this view, history is led along by unseen forces, be they malevolent or beneficent.  Humans play their role to be sure, but man is not the autonomous god of his own destiny.  He is the actor on a stage in which there is a grand narrative and ultimate reason for every event, even if humans are not always cognizant of those reasons.

Coming to see the truth of a worldwide conspiracy that has been especially centralized in the past few centuries in a western, Anglo-global establishment is also not something people prefer to hear.  Humans tend to have a normalcy bias and what is called cognitive dissonance.  Cognitive dissonance is the tendency to continue to believe something erroneous in the face of masses of contrary evidence, due to the devastating psychological impact discarding the previous erroneous belief would have.  Americans are raised with the narrative of being a nation of independent individualists: the frontier mentality still dominates and is an image is always latent in our culture. This individualistic mentality refuses to consider itself as the victim of any conspiracy: we are too great a nation to be ruled by an evil elite, bent on world depopulation.  After all, Obama is a  “liberal” president, isn’t he?  “How could there be a massive conspiracy?  If there were, they would all be caught!  It’s just not possible,” the opponent says.  That’s all “black helicopter, tin-foil-hat nonsense.” To those with low education or no critical thinking skills and common sense, it’s evident that none of these objections suffices to demonstrate that the conspiratorial view is false.  From the fact that one is a “proud American” or that George Bush claimed to be a Christian, it does not follow that the conspiratorial view is false.  This is called, in logic, a non sequitur.  The conclusion does not logically follow from the premises.
