The Spirit-Will to Godhood and Human Culture
The Will to Godhood, or the Spirit-Will to Godhood, is the most basic activation of life, it is physiologically and psychologically active throughout the living cells, but it remains to be more fully explained by scientific philosophical naturalism. In human beings the Spirit-Will activates the other elements, such as the Ego or Superego, and even reason, resembling more a Super-Id, but with the highest evolutionary purpose of inwardly activating life to evolve all the way to Godhood, as life is being shaped outwardly by evolution.
The Spirit-Will is neither the master morality or slave morality of Nietzsche, and it is not the purely creative version of Nietzsche's will to power that is politically correct. The Spirit-Will is not dominant for the sake of being dominant or creative for the sake of being creative, it seeks Godhood in evolution by way of activating life to evolve to Godhood.
Authentically developing the Will to Godhood means self-consciously always moving upward in evolution selecting a balance of intelligence, beauty and noble character, until attaining the zenith of these things in evolution, which defines Godhood, the goal of religion, culture and evolution.
The Spirit-Will is the zenith of the Soul just as the Soul is the zenith of the mind. The Soul is the experience or mirror of God or the Father Within seen in the mind after applying the traditional ascetic disciplines of the great religions in blocking material desires. This is the Inward Path. On the other hand the Spirit-Will seeks real Godhood through material-supermaterial evolution in the Outward Path, that is, the Godhood first seen as the God Within. This defines the Twofold Path.
Group life has been the natural method evolved and applied in human beings to help them survive and reproduce successfully. The Spirit-Will to Godhood has worked in harmony with group life in a variety of evolving groups, regions and states. Humans are capable of cooperative competition but civilized advances have realistically needed to be martially protected against less civilized values. It is important to see that we can suppress war without suppressing evolution.
We would best have religious and sociobiological research institutes, nationally and internationally, to objectively, and voluntarily, help guide our evolution to Godhood in the cosmos.
