Only something that does not exist can be the perfection the mystics say the Self or Consciousness or God is.
The only way the Self of the mystics can exist is to call it not material, spiritual, invisible, beyond the mind, unutterable, and transcendent: which means it does not exist other than as a dream/wish in the mind/body of the mystics.
This means that the mystic foundation of traditional religions is a fiction with no basis in reality. But does this mean God and religion are dead?
No. But it does mean that religion needs to be bonded to life and material evolution. It means that supermaterial Godhood is evolved to in the material world of body, senses, and mind. It means that Godhood is not perfection because life then evolves on to higher levels of Godhood, endlessly---and sometimes life devolves backward or moves sideways---without a beginning or end.
If we can accept this reality than we will have religion in the future---and no great civilization was founded without religion.

Democrats and liberals say the differences come from exploitation of the poor by the rich, or discrimination by whites against those of color.
Republicans and libertarians say the differences are caused by big government liberals and socialists.
Populist nationalists and the Alt-right say the differences come from biology and from global elites.
The answer? All of the above, with the last mentioned closer to the truth.
According to Taki Theodoracopulos, Norway's murder rate in 2014 was 0.56 per 100,000, and in 2016 their Per Capita GDP was $70,392. Haiti's murder rate in 2004 was 219 per 100,000, and their Per Capita GDP was $761.
People and ethnic groups are different from one another!
Real human nature throughout human history shows that people live and harmonize best within their own ethnostates, and people clash when they are shoved together in the same multicultural states and told that they must all be equal in their behavior.
Long-term solution? An ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
The possibility of the constitutional separation of powers and states adapting to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates in the short-term? Not good. The possibility of it happening, purposely or unpurposely, in the long-term? Much better.

I think false dualities are the big enemy of truth, probably originating in ancient religions and then moving on to philosophy.
Religions separated mind from body, material from spiritual, beast from man, rational from irrational, and came up with a method for seeing or experiencing God which required the duality to take things as far as blocking all material desires.
There may be a hierarchy of drives with the most important force being the basic material drive within life, within every cell of the body (Tirips), to active life to evolve in the material world toward the greatest success in survival and evolution, which is supermaterial Godhood.
Even so, mind, body, beast, man, rational, irrational, all are one, and all are material and supermaterial with different but related tasks, at different stages of evolution.
We evolve in material and supermaterial life from frogs to the Gods, and religious/philosophical talk of a duality between the material and spiritual, with religion preferring the spiritual, is false and misleading and is holding us back from attaining real Godhood.

I see human history as progress, but not all people and states progress at the same time. I don't see determined cycles of golden ages and their falls, or original sin.
But human nature remains biologically as it has always been, kin-centered and ethnocentric, among other traditional human behavior, even if this is denied by postmodern liberalism.
Empire-building might have made more sense when the world was far less populated, but now empire-building should not be defined as progress.
Now there are too many distinctive people and states who will not accept being conquered or assimilated in an empire and will therefore naturally create social disorder.
Progress now means declaring that from now on empire-building is not acceptable. For example, the Russians should not reconquer old satellites which have become natural ethnostates, Israel should not seek land beyond its borders, the Palestinians should have their own state, and the U.S. should bring its empire home.
Human progress is now defined as empires devolved into a natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected from future empires by some sort of federalism. We might not all go there at the same time, but that now defines human progress.

I like the wild creativity of the transhumanists but I think they are chickenshit in centering on artificial intelligence rather than human intelligence or super-species intelligence.
I understand the problems that come from talking about human intelligence, being called a racist or bigot when you are not, but high creativity isn't only comic-book heroes and dweeby computers.
Then there is that revenge of the nerds quality to the transhumanists, their resentment of the blond preppies in high school who got all the girls, or the girls themselves who wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole.
It is not human-computer melds we need most it is the biological and genetic evolution of humans and beyond that we need, with men and women controlling the computers, not the other way around.
The "trans" we need is not transhumanism (or transsexualism for that matter) but the great transformations that come from biological evolution, which can include a sane and moral genetic engineering.
We don't even have to lose religion when it is understood that we materially evolve to supermaterial Godhood.

Socrates tell us that man is a self-knowing being living in a not-knowing body. Freud calls the forces of the body an irrational Id. But it seems to be virtually the the other way around.
What are called the irrational forces of life are called that mainly because spirit and mind are considered superior and rational by the mystics and the body is considered inferior or even evil.
The activating force of the body is not irrational, it seeks to active the body and mind to evolve all the way to supermaterial Godhood in the material world. That does not indicate an ignorant unconscious.
The "ignorant" and "irrational" Id force of the body is more like a rational Super-Id because it seeks to activate life, along with the mind, to evolve in the natural world toward the ultimate evolutionary success of Godhood.
Is it not time to unblock the Great Spiritual Blockade to Godhood? I think so.

I have always respected the realism of the military in general. But the best leaders know when to call retreat to regroup.
It seems that those who think one power---the U.S.---should rule the world (Mattis and president Trump) have won our national defense strategy, over those who seek a multi-polar world (Pat Buchanan and the populist nationalists).
So it looks like Trump's populist nationalism, at least regarding national defense strategy, which he campaigned on and won with, is over
According to Srdja Trifkovic's stats America has declined economically from having 40 percent of the world economy in 1960 to 20 percent today. We can't afford a bloated global military. We have also had a big cultural decline in traditional values and moved toward cultural Marxism and a relativity of values and morals, now tearing us apart.
It looks like we will have more of the same military industrial complex. The swamp will continue. Washington politicians don't have the balls to promote populist nationalism in the face of the lobbies who control them.
We could be very tough without a global empire, yet still deal with the world, but the global blowhards can't see it that way. I suppose we will have to fall like Rome without a realistic recovery plan before we will have the recovery of our natural constitutional separation of powers and states, yet alone the more permanent ethnopluralism of ethnostates which usually follows the fall of empires.
This is not happy news, but realism is not always pretty.

Ultimately mans status in the universe is not wholly determined by the "quality of his thinking" but by the level of his evolution, which includes both mind and body.
The highest status in the universe goes to Godhood, which is the highest evolved being, or beings, at any given time in the universe.
We don't transcend the "limits" of flesh and mind by blocking material evolution with ascetic compulsion. Flesh and mind evolve materially toward supermaterial Godhood.
Spirit isn't light and matter isn't darkness, as the mystics have constantly told us, the activation of life toward Godhood is material, not spiritual.
Life is materially activated from within and life must then evolve, hopefully, with higher and higher success toward Godhood, in whatever environment life finds itself living in, adapting as life goes along.
We can now be an aid in our evolution toward real Godhood. Blocking evolution, religiously or politically, is not an aid at all.
Even so, even so, as conservatives, we can retain the old ascetic first inward glimpses of "god" as we reverse, transform, and evolve our metaphysics. The involutionary and evolutionary Twofold Path does that.
Friday, March 09, 2018
I think of evolution from the inward perspective perhaps even more than the outward perspective. Evolution is the activation and struggle of life to exploit or control its outside environment so that life can successfully survive, reproduce, etc. Life is not always successful in this struggle, and sometimes life is forced to mutate and change due to its environment. But it is that essential (divine) desire to survive and live that is a central evolutionary, and religious, force.
That is where the Twofold Path in theological materialism comes from. The Inward Path does not see God, it sees or experiences that divine yet material inward spark of life, whereas the Outward Path of life seeks a way in the environment to honor its inward activation and successfully evolve all the way to supermaterial---not spiritual---Godhood.
I see conservative reasons to retain the traditional religious first imperfect glimpses of "Godhood" in their traditional inward paths, which is transformed by the Outward Path of natural material evolution to supermaterial Godhood. Religion, science and the cultural ethos can join in the old hope of a consilience and unity of knowledge.

The spirit of our times is the desire of people to fragment from centralized states and from globalism
The spirit of our times is the desire of people to fragment from centralized states and from globalism, more in Europe than the United states, but dawning everywhere. It would be seen in Russia and China too but their general tendencies toward centralized fascism on the right and centralized communism on the left have blocked this populist trend.
But the more the desire to decentralize and localize grows the more centralization and globalism will block this populist trend by seeking even more centralization to control the social disruptions, virtually to the point of fascism.
This harkens back to Spengler's idea that civilizations always cyclically enter a period of pre-death emergency where "Caesarism" and the omnipotent executive takes power. But are these sort of cycles inevitable?
Growing resistance to Caesarism may start locally and then gradually build to the nation. I hope we will retain some form of federalism to protect the whole and not seek complete secession, as we decentralize into regions and states in harmony with real human nature, which remains, kin-centered, gender defined, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
I think this points toward the political/cultural solution of ethnopluralism, often written about here. It is a conservative transformation---not revolution---that I hoped will come which will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where different ethnic groups can politically and culturally conduct themselves according to who they actually are, in their own regions and states within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to our already existing constitutional separation of powers and states.
I don't think these cycles have to be inevitable, although we may have to suffer another version of Caesarism which will be used to try to calm the inevitable social disruptions caused by globalism, open borders, and multiculturalism, before we will see the real devolution and decentralization of these bloated and corrupt centralized states.

The biological origin of our social behavior actually ends the intellectual defense of postmodern relativism
The corruption of the Media in America is at bottom the consequence of decades of teaching a dumbed-down version of "postmodernism" to journalists and everyone else in our colleges and universities---you know, the same postmodernism that teaches a relativity of values and the cultural Marxism which has been destroying us.
Although an analogy to a sword might make the effete intellectuals of postmodernism quake, postmodernism can be defeated as easily as Alexander cut the Gordian Knot with his sword rather than trying to unknot the occult philosophy of the Phrygians.
The biological origin of our social behavior, as empirically explained by sociobiology, actually ends the intellectual defense of postmodern relativism. As long as we are alive every cell in our body demands survival and reproductive success. This natural activation can be blocked, subverted, or it can be unknown to us, but it can't legitimately be intellectually or instinctively denied. Any existing "relativity" of values can come only from the various social and cultural methods we try (including postmodernism) to biologically and genetically advance out kin, related ethnic group, locality and nation.
This defense of real human nature affirms in general the populist nationalism now trying to rise in the corrupted West.
Monday, March 05, 2018
Modern liberals propose utopian schemes like universal equality and cultural Marxism but those proposal do not change the mainly conservative foundation of human nature, they only pervert and abuse human nature and human social behavior.
The great cultural achievements of mankind have been reduced by modern liberalism to foolishness and perversity. But many conservatives (mainly neoconservatives) have also corrupted the natural inclination of human nature toward populist nationalism with a grotesque elitist form of free trade and globalism.
I'll repeat again the mantra on real human nature, most recently empirically defined by the science of sociobiology: In every human culture ever studied human nature included, among other conservative things, being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
Change or evolution can and should happen while keeping the best of the past and while including new things that are assimilable with the natural inclinations of human nature, including populist and economic nationalism (which China is now succeeding with as America once did.)
But even more harmonious with real human nature is the finer tuning of populist nationalism toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which is the next great political movement that can bring us back to reality, and perhaps with only a few amendments to our constitutional separation of powers and states.

In a recent interview in "Chronicles (March 2018) Tucker Carlson had some interesting things to say about conspiracy theories.
He talked about how older people, not young people, tend to think conspiracies exist..."not just conspiracies where people meet off-site to subvert the system, but conspiracies of like-mindedness, of similar temperament, of instinct...maybe all the people in charge are from pretty much the same world and have the same preconceptions, maybe they, maybe they unknowingly, act together to produce a certain result..."
I waited for Carlson to then say: "and maybe they are of the same ethnic group, maybe they are ethnocentric," but he did not. I don't think Carlson was trying to be politically correct, I think, like most conservatives, he is largely missing the knowledge of real human nature that comes from the science of sociobiology, or at least is too cavalierly dismissing that knowledge.
Conservatives seem to have a hard time admitting the biological origin of social behavior (and of course liberals won't go anywhere near it), they don't want to admit that ethnocentrism is a deep part of natural human nature and it affects politics, and even religion---that sounds too much like "racism." The religion side of it is especially the line they can't cross probably because of the universalism running through religion.
But conservatives can still be conservative if they admit that distinctly different ethnic groups and races need to be allowed their own natural agendas, but not all living within the same space. which leads to negative things like racial supremacy and bigotry.
The U. S. constitutional separation of powers and states could be legally adapted to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which would end, or at least slow, the main conspiracies that are tearing our country apart. Radical revolution could be avoided.

Conservatism, populism, nationalism, and even modern liberalism have an unsung common ground with ethnopluralism.
The difference between conservatives and ethnopluralists is that ethnopluralism is often backed by a materialist definition of human nature (though not always), and conservatism is usually backed by a spiritualist foundation. But they share the same essential traditional definition of human nature as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
Both religion and science (sociobiology) more or less concur in this definition, which is also an unsung connection.
Modern liberals are usually materialists and therefore they should be able to share the same natural definition of human nature as conservatives and ethnopluralists. But liberals wrongly define human nature as cultural Marxism, which is the opposite of the conservative and ethnopluralist definition of real human nature mentioned above.
Liberals and even some conservatives like to proclaim that ethnopluralism or an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is racial supremacist and fascist, but ethnopluralism is the opposite, believing in the separation of powers and states, not centralization, and the independence of each ethnostates and distinct ethnic group. Liberals should welcome the independence and cultural affirmation of the ethnic minorities they constantly champion, who will be free at last to proclaim their own unique cultures---as the majorities have done---but this time in harmony with real human nature.
So why do we not make these unsung political connections between conservatism, populism, nationalism, modern liberalism, and ethnopluralism? Some of it is just plain ignorance, but much of it is because a few powerful people seek to benefit from the present multiculturalism and cultural Marxism that is destroying us.

It's not easy to be a social human being living in a swamp, which is why many people drop out of it all. But that allows the bad guys to conquer more easily.
Many Americans see the Democrats, Republicans, and the Big Media, as not worth a damn in cleaning up the cultural swamp, which is why they voted for Donald Trump who lived outside the swamp of Washington.
Some people speak of cycles of these things happening in human history and that we should just ride out the cycles. Others fall for the totalitarian temptation, that is, using a powerful flood to clean out the swamp, which then levels everything in sight. Some advocate "thinking outside the box" but end up thinking inside another box.
I believe if we actually listen to every cell in our biological bodies we see life reaching to live and successfully survive, and we can also see that the biological origin of human nature is the real natural "box" defining the real origin of human social behavior. That can counter and defeat the relativity of postmodernism completely.
In every human culture ever studied human nature included being biologically kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. If a culture proposes to not include these things the culture does not last long and will always return to these things.
I affirm the courageous idea put forward by the late, politically incorrect, Wilmot Robertson suggesting that perhaps we don't have to accept Oswald Spengler's endless cycles and we can counter the cycles by setting up a real ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in harmony with real human nature, which swampy empires always cyclically return to in any case. Different ethnic groups can politically and culturally conduct themselves according to who they actually are, in their own states, even within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states.
That's my natural box.

If we ask why are one out of twenty films and television shows so bad and missing talented writers, directors and actors, I think it more or less has to do with the producers preferring to help kin and ethnic group become rich and influential over more talented people. When you add the mix of distinctively different cultures and ethnic groups all competing in America and the West it becomes difficult to define "excellence" anymore. And postmodernism in the academic world steps in and teaches all college grads that, in any case, all things are relative, including truth.
Multiculturalism has led to the decline of American culture. Excellence used to be defined as "the best that has been thought and said in human history," but that was when the culture was homogeneous and mainly Northern European. That was before globalism, before mass immigration, when America was more of a republic than an empire, when we had economic and populist nationalism.
The fact is, preferring to hire your kin and ethnic group is completely natural and a big part of real human nature. That reality points not toward multiculturalism, which creates only chaos, but toward the political/cultural solution of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where different ethnic groups can politically and culturally conduct themselves according to who they actually are, in their own states or regions within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states.
This long-term solution to the wreckage of our culture is only beginning along the horizon.

More on the error of opposites:
"Divine" truth and human ignorance are not opposites any more than the "spiritual" is opposite the material. Both sides are on a continuum of material life evolving in nature from the material to the supermaterial.
Why the insistence on separation and opposites by religious mystics? Is it their way of competing in the material world to hobble the material world? Nietzsche thought so. We don't need to reject God as Nietzsche did, we just have to correctly define Godhood.
What the mystics are doing is blocking the very thing they claim to love most: Godhood. We won't gain Godhood by blocking material evolution.
It is not the quality of thinking that determines mans status in the cosmos, it is the level of evolution of his whole material body and mind. We transcend not by transcending flesh and mind (which is not really what mystics are doing even if they think they are) we transcend by way of material evolution---slower but true.
Joining religion and science could speed things up.

There is no real duality between the spiritual and the material because there is only the material and supermaterial. This duality is a metaphysical mistake that blocks or at least slows down the material from evolving to the supermaterial.
There are thousands or millions of degrees of intelligence between Godhood and man but both are materially connected and related through material evolution.
Religion has been the connection between Godhood and man, but science needs to be in included since science can be a great aid in helping us to evolve toward Godhood. There need not be a false duality here.
The foundation of life is only superficially dual between the inward material activation of life and the outside natural material environment, they are one dynamic thing.
Evolution is the struggle or adaptation between life and the outside environment of life, with the goal of life to evolve toward the most possible success in life, which is Godhood.
When the ultimate goal is not known, evolution is slowed or blocked, although life evolves even if it is ignorant of its own evolution.

The Internet is like a Two-Headed Dragon with one head as the greatest library-of-everything in the history of humanity, and the other head as the greatest filthy swamp of lies, crime, and pornography in the history of humanity.
As a thought experiment, think of the United States and China as dealing with the Two-Headed Dragon from different sides of "freedom" yet on the same eventual swing toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which I think will inevitably happen in both countries. Why? Because human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. China and the United States are not ethnically uniform and fierce competition between distinctly different groups and regions will happen, as happened in the Soviet Union.
By any traditional definition of destruction, the Two-Headed Dragon and the Big Media have been destroying American culture and the American people, even as great new technology is developing, and if we don't want totalitarian fascism on the left or the right to put up a great firewall of censorship, as China has done, then rather than either the Two-Headed Dragon, or totalitarian censorship, I would prefer to apply our energy toward legally adapting and transforming our constitutional separation of powers, states, and regions into an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
If one ethnostate wants to set up another Sodom and Gomorrah they could do so, but other ethnostates could set up firewalls of censorship that would, for the most part, protect them from the filth---at least while they wait for the degenerate state to inevitably fall. The main job of federalism would be to protect the independence of the ethnostates from each other and from foreign powers.
Do you have a better idea that relates to real human nature?
Saturday, February 24, 2018
We can think of life and evolution as the continual activation of life from within (Tirips), offset by continual evolutionary natural selection from without.
Natural selection from without continually checks and balances the inward activation of life, which defines evolution. Both inward and outward forces are needed. Neither are evil.
Furthermore the inward activation of life is entirely material and seeks to activate life to successfully evolve all the way to material or supermaterial Godhood, as life makes its way within the natural selection of the environment it finds itself living in.
Mystics tend to think of the inward forces as spiritual and non-material and think of outside material forces as demiurgic or demonic. That is mistaken.
Mystics are in metaphysical error when they remove themselves from the evolutionary natural forces which lead life toward real Godhood. And science is in error when it ignores the sacred goal of the inward activation.
