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.

Or, Gödel Versus the New World Order

By: Jay

In the land of the blind, the 80s black science guy with 80s black guy mustache is king.  In a recent interview, high priest of neo-Darwinian scientism, Neil de Grasse Tyson expounded the true profundity of his worldview.  Tyson stated on a recent podcast:

“interviewer: At a certain point it’s just futile.

dGT: Yeah, yeah, exactly, exactly. My concern here is that the philosophers believe they are actually asking deep questions about nature. And to the scientist it’s, what are you doing? Why are you concerning yourself with the meaning of meaning?

(another) interviewer: I think a healthy balance of both is good.

dGT: Well, I’m still worried even about a healthy balance. Yeah, if you are distracted by your questions so that you can’t move forward, you are not being a productive contributor to our understanding of the natural world. And so the scientist knows when the question “what is the sound of one hand clapping?” is a pointless delay in our progress.

[insert predictable joke by one interviewer, imitating the clapping of one hand]

dGT: How do you define clapping? All of a sudden it devolves into a discussion of the definition of words. And I’d rather keep the conversation about ideas. And when you do that don’t derail yourself on questions that you think are important because philosophy class tells you this. The scientist says look, I got all this world of unknown out there, I’m moving on, I’m leaving you behind. You can’t even cross the street because you are distracted by what you are sure are deep questions you’ve asked yourself. I don’t have the time for that. [Note to the reader: I, like Neil, live and work in Manhattan, and I can assure you that I am quite adept at crossing the perilous streets of the metropolis.]

interviewer [not one to put too fine a point on things, apparently]: I also felt that it was a fat load of crap, as one could define what crap is and the essential qualities that make up crap: how you grade a philosophy paper? [5] Continue reading

Philo Sophia: A Pretentious Essay

Milla.

What do you know?

 

Dedicated to MJC

By: Jay

It was a dark and stormy night and as I lay upon my couch, I fell into a Cartesian Meditation.  I thought about thinking out loud and thinking itself.  I thought, to think is to lose the flow of thought as thought translates into word.  And I thought about how man’s mind and his ‘nous‘ is the meeting place with God, and how God is present in the stream of thought, and how we have a stream of thought.  I thought about how a whole world can be opened by a book and how different religions participate in a different geist, and how an atheist limits himself in thinking there is only one way things can be analyzed and how under the guise of free thinking this was actually a limitation.

And I thought about an old girlfriend, and how she would have no concern for these things.  Then I thought about why I thought about an old girlfriend and how that isn’t interesting expressed out loud.  And I thought about how superstition is mistaken for religion and how people think that is a justification for rejecting religion.  I thought about a number and how a number is something mysterious, even thought it has the cloak of being purely rational in the Enlightenment sense of rational, where everything is subject to quantification and how great it was that number itself is not subject to quantification.  And I thought about how the idea of subjecting everything to quantification itself cannot be subjected to quantification and how a presupposition is a hinge upon which an entire worldview turns.  I thought about how the mind is a train that can be turned on a faulty presupposition to continue down a wrong track for one’s whole life.

And I thought about how the look of early 20th century trains were something that fascinated me as a child, but not now.  And I asked myself, “Why did I like a train as a kid, and not now?”  And I thought about time and the passage of time and how it is the rate at which we experience light in our frequency or wavelength, and how philosophers speculated about time, thinking it was a constant, but that it is not.  I thought about how people thought time was a kind of substance like “space” and how Aristotle defines substance and how even Descartes used substance and people misunderstand this, because it meant something different than it does in the modern era.  I thought about how people think it means a gooey, gelatinous, semisolid thing, when it meant essence. And I thought about how no one cares what essence is and how idiots in philosophy classes think it’s something cool to say but don’t know what they’re talking about.  I thought about how essence was something a medieval theologian thought about every day and how now no one cares what that is, or metaphysics.

And I thought about how big corporate bookstores sell metaphysics as witchcraft and Tarot and how silly it is to think that is what metaphysics is.  And I wondered what it must be like to be the person who thinks that is what metaphysics is and then I recalled my ex-girlfriend again and that she probably didn’t count as a girlfriend, and that she wouldn’t care about any of these things.

I thought about intimacy and we can only have an approximation of what the opposite sex experiences in intimacy and how that was analogical.  We speak of God analogically and that is Thomistic terminology, but that most people misunderstand this because Thomas Aquinas was wrong, yet no one cares about this nowadays.  I thought about Socrates and the Apology and the dialogues and how funny it would be to walk through my own hometown to ask artisans and politicians what “justice” and “wisdom” are, in the ideal sense, and how they would have no idea, and how the average reader of this post will take “ideal” in the colloquial sense and not the metaphysical sense.  And I thought about how everyone would say “justice” is relative to whatever they want it to be, and how it was no different in Socrates’ day.    I thought about how pretentious the philosopher is and was.  I thought about how we exist in an era of knowledge like none other, but utterly lacking in wisdom and how the Internet represents infinite knowledge, but without the form and meaning wisdom provides and how this was damaging and useless.  I thought again about how our thought process turns on a faulty or correct presupposition like a train on the tracks.

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.

Did Tykwer’s 2009 ‘The International’ Predict Banker Deaths?

Film poster. They own everything.

Film poster. They own everything.

 

By: Jay

In film analysis found in alternative news it is often the norm to look for hidden symbols and all-pervasive evil codes, as if every artistic venture were controlled by shadowy black ops commanders and occultists. We must avoid being too negative and falling into a myopic view of the world. Some films are good propaganda and deliver a positive message: One of those positive messages is found in The International. Tom Tykwer’s 2009 film is a stunning expose of the true to life inner workings of the global banking crime syndicate, otherwise known as the new world order. And as an even more interesting question, did Tywker’s film also predict or foreshadow the deaths of numerous high level bankers of late?

The film stars Naomi Watts as a New York Assistant District Attorney “Eleanor Whitman” and Clive Owen as Interpol agent “Louis Salinger” on the trail of the killer(s) of a prominent banker Interpol is trying to flip from the IBBC, the International Bank of Business and Credit.  The IBBC in the film matches up to a couple real banks, like the Bank for International Settlements, the BIS, or the BCCI, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.   The first is the elite Swiss Bank seated at the top of the world banking empire in Basle Switzerland.  A product of the last century of globalization, Council on Foreign Relations historian Dr. Carroll Quigley gives the inside skinny in his Tragedy and Hope  and discusses Lord Milner’s Round Table Groups, upon which the RIIA, Council on Foreign Relations and the elite BIS are based.  Quigley writes:

“The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole… Their secret is that they have annexed from governments, monarchies, and republics the power to create the world’s money…  -pg. 324 Continue reading

Robots Over Russia: The Great Anglo-Techno Game

NATO expansion encloses Russia.

NATO expansion encloses Russia.

By: Jay

In order to understand the crisis in Ukraine, it is crucial to grasp the key players and plans in the global chess game.  In the last hundred years, the world has been dominated by the Anglo-American imperium.  The British “Great Game” of keeping Russia at bay was a torch passed on to the American establishment following the Bolshevik Revolution (sponsored by Western banks, including in particular Paul Warburg), as the British shadow establishment contented itself by ruling America from afar, through its Pratt House and Council on Foreign Relations versions of the Royal Society Round Table.  From this behemoth came the OSS and CIA, as well as covert support for Sovietism as I’ve demonstrated here from the CFR’s own history.

Britain thus pioneered the practice of containment, strategy of tension, and overt infiltration and subversion of Russia through its own exported Kulturkampf, Marxism.   As Russian civilization labored under the burden of Sovietism, the West enlisted its best and brightest in a great propaganda campaign known as the Cold War.   While existing as something real on one level, at a higher level, the goal was always convergence between the West and the East, as the polar opposites merged into a single globo-state, merging the worst of the communist and capitalist systems.  The Cold War therefore allowed the western military industrial complex the onus to work towards its grand project: the great Skynet/DARPA grid that would come online as a result of endless black budget funding from covert projects.  For proof of this, one need look no further than the computer screen in front them, wired to the internet – DARPA’s master creation.  As DARPA’s own history shows, the creation of the Internet was always a spying masterplan of the western military industrial intelligence establishment through Harvard, RAND, AT&T, Xerox, the NSA and London!  Consider as well that even at that time, the plan was to link the “NET” to satellites (Skynet).  When Russian President Vladimir Putin recently said the Internet was a CIA creation, he was 100% correct.

DARPA states as follows concerning its creation and reason for existence:

“The Soviet Union’s launch of Sputnik showed that a fundamental change was needed in America’s defense science and technology programs. DARPA was formed to meet this need and rejuvenated our defense technological capabilities.”

The 1977 ARPANET, precursor to the Internet, connected to RAND, Harvard, Stanford, London, etc., and the satellite grid.

The 1977 ARPANET, precursor to the Internet, connected to RAND, Harvard, Stanford, London, etc., and the satellite grid.

The greatest of those projects (along with the Manhattan Project from World War 2) would be the secret space program hatched at Bohemian Grove known as the Star Wars Defense Initiative.  SDI, the Strategic Defense Initiative, would see countless billions siphoned off of the taxpayers’ backs into endless black holes of research and development.  In order to justify the intelligence state and its black budget techno ops, a great enemy was needed.  That enemy continued to be the Russians, as American establishment elites justified their Faustian bargain with techno obsession through the “liberal” Marxist enemy of the Russians.  Just as the British created and manufactured an enemy in the Wahhabis and Jihadism through the letters and works of Sir Lawrence of Arabia, so too did the American establishment manufacture the same with Al Qaeda in 1979.   Brzezinski explains of the creation of Al Qaeda and the Mujahadeen:

Brzezinski's 1997 The Grand Chessboard outlines the modern plan against Russia.

Brzezinski’s 1997 The Grand Chessboard outlines the modern plan against Russia.

“Q: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.” Brzezinski was channeling Lawrence of Arabia.

British Intelligence expert Mark Curtis gives the background to the “Great Game”:

“The British strategy of divide and rule, and reliance on Muslim forces to promote imperial interests, reached its apogee in the Middle East during and after the First World War.  The carving up of the region by British and French officials has been endlessly commented on – though less so as an illustration of the long-standing British ‘use’ of Islam, which then took a new turn.  The Middle East was seen by British planners as critical for both strategic and commercial reasons.  Strategically, the Islamic territories were important buffers against Russian expansion into the Imperial land route from British India to British-controlled Egypt.  But oil had by now also entered the  picture, with the founding of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Corporation in Persia in 1909, the discovery of oil in Iraq soon after, and its increasingly important role in powering the military during the First World War.  British planners viewed control over Iraqi and Persian oil to be a ‘first class British War aim.'” (Curtis, Secret Affairs, 5)

JaysAnalysis Interviews Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media

In this interview, I ask Gnostic Media’s Jan Irvin about his thoughts on a variety of issues. However, our interview morphed into a debate on issues of metaphysics which Irvin thinks I deceived him into. Listeners and readers of my material know I frequently have no problem challenging opponents to a debate, so why I would need to trap him is ridiculous. Regardless, my questions were classic philosophical questions revolving around whether foundationalist empirical epistemology is justifiable. I believe it is not, and when Irvin, who supports it, asks for examples, I gave two: Aristotle’s transcendental argument for the principle of non-contradiction and Godel’s Incompleteness Theorum against Bertrand Russell. The point was to show that tabula rasa empiricism cannot be a foundation for any metaphysics, and the way that an immaterial, invariant logical or conceptual entity is “proven” or “verified” is not the same as other types of empirical objects. Listeners can judge whether I was unfair to him in the interview, especially given the fact that I let him talk most of the time. Irvin assumes that I don’t understand the trivium and logic, when the very question I ask him is the heart of logic itself.  Regardless, I don’t recommend Jan or his work.

Captain America 2: Winter Soldier is Real

Film poster. The film was released on 4-4-14.

 

By: Jay

The new Captain America film is heavily laced with either revelation of the method programming, or genuine artistic rebellion against the corrupt, globalist establishment.  The plot is one of the most anti-new world order films I’ve seen, in terms of plot.  Granted, Marvel now owned by Disney is 100% establishment, regurgitating decades of Disney mind control, but apparently that doesn’t prevent a positive message to seep out.

Or, from a darker perspective, was the completely revelatory plot of Captain America 2 purposefully released as another middle finger?  Does the intentional selection of  sentimental old Americana (represented by Captain America) perhaps signal the establishment’s statement they know the truth of the opposition’s side better than the opposition, associating anti-establishment impetus with childish comic book plots?  Let us analyze.  The plot begins with a French “terrorist” organization hijacking a high-tech SHIELD warship called “The Lemurian Star.”  Lemuria is associated with Atlantis in the writings of occultists like Blavatsky and Leadbetter, giving us a clue that the key to interpreting the meaning will be the attempt to restore Atlantis.  This false flag attack is designed to frame SHIELD commander, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), disabling the Avengers and Captain America.

The state-sponsored terror is actually led by Hydra, a kind of World War 2 analogue for the Bilderberg Group.  Hydra, like Bilderberg, was founded by former Nazis seeking to implement a worldwide technocratic government.   Like the actual Bilderberg Group, it has the same goals and motivations, but what was so surprising about Captain America 2 was the revelation of the AI control/kill grid that is Hydra’s real weapon.   The Avengers discover that the AI kill grid is put in place to utilize all the data that the government surveillance has captured over the last several decades using complex algorithms that predict who the likely threats will be in the future.

Thumbs up to Natasha Romanov

Predictive algorithmic AI computing is precisely the purpose of the Internet itself, as well as Google and all the other tech monstrosities.  The purpose of the Internet itself was always to gather reconnaissance on the masses.  The AI grid stores basically everything, and based on the vast information stored at the “data vaults” and warehouses around the globe, information is processed for future predictive accuracy.  There is a virtual version of everything happening, with a virtual version of you and me, where tests are run to see the outcome of various scenarios.  The reconnaissance is for the ultimate goal of the AI takeover.  Films like the Terminator series and Oblivion also have this same plot, but rather than art life imitating art, this is art based on actual Pentagon programs.  And just like Skynet is real, so is the Avengers’ version of Skynet, where advanced decapitation and space-based weapons (for removing heads of state) are in place since at least the Star Wars Defense initiative of the late 70s.
