The art impulse and the sacred totality of religion (from 2012)


We don't need duality in the art world any more than we do in theology or philosophy. With evolution the incomprehensible infinite of the Romantic becomes the clarity of the Classical. Beauty becomes truth and truth beauty. This is the goal affirmed in the art philosophy of Evolutionary Realism.

It is more than admiration for the infinite which causes our art passions to be exited, as Burke said (which Jung called the numinous mystery), it is more essentially the material Will-To-Godhood, or Tirips, the zenith of the instincts, that excites our passions, which can be fulfilled only in our material-supermaterial evolution to Godhood. Here the infinite becomes clarity, beauty becomes truth. This is also how we counter Kant and say that reality can be known and is a supermaterial object.

Certainly we are imperfect, as the Christians demand, but our evolution to Godhood can bring perfection, which means we should not permanently dwell on our imperfections seen only in the Involutionary Inward Path, it is in the Evolutionary Outward Path where we can reach perfection in ascending levels of Godhood.

There is a sacred totality here: we arrive at health by fusing self, society and Godhood with the Will or Tirips which activates life to evolve to Godhood. Evolutionary therapy, art, political philosophy, the sciences, etc., can fuse in this mission. In this holistic view religion is the way out of the problems seen in these now separated areas. It is perhaps this religious perspective that is the “total art work” that we have been searching for in the West since the Ancient Greeks, which art can only affirm.

If we never have another Shakespeare I would settle for less if they at least affirmed Darwinist sociobiology


I think we can say that Shakespeare believed in tradition, hierarchy, monarchy, and aristocracy, but Charles Darwin, another great Englishmen from the great British Isles, had not yet added his genius discovery of evolution. What would Shakespeare have done with Darwin? What would Darwin have done with the Neo-Darwinism of sociobiology?

We will probably never have another Shakespeare, but we could have a Darwinian tune up of his worldview to take on the arts and humanities, which have been destroyed by postmodernism, Marxism, feminism, multiculturalism, anti-religion, and anti-white-racism, which are all absurdness, lies, and undisguised wills to power astoundingly taught in virtually all our schools and reflected throughout the media.

The postmodern idea that everything is socially constructed (but not postmodernism?) is almost psychotic. The explanation that seems plausible to me for the freakish victory of postmodernism, Marxism, feminism, etc. in the academic world and in the media is that the relativism and power philosophy of postmodernism was not successfully countered by the academic traditional conservatives because they could not fully accept their best defense, which is the broadly biological origin of our social behavior, taught by the scientific synthesis of sociobiology. They could not even affirm religion as essentially having been a better way to socially bond groups together (altruism) for successful survival and reproduction. Traditionalists could not see beyond their definition of God as being outside the world of biological power and material desires, and so postmodernism won the academic power war.

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 unconsciously or consciously biologically and genetically advance out kin, related ethnic group, locality and nation.

A Neo-Darwinist Shakespeare could have a ball satirizing postmodernism, Marxism, feminism, multiculturalism, anti-religion, and anti-white-racism, while supporting the populist nationalism and ethnostatism now trying to rise in the very corrupted West. But if we never have another Shakespeare I would settle for less if they at least affirmed Darwinist sociobiology.

Evolutionary conservatism says we require a proper balance between order and evolution


The nature of man is flawed say Christian conservatives. Liberal's say that man and the world are improvable. Conservative's say human nature aspires to dominance and power and can only be countered by countervailing balance of power. Liberal's believe we can all march toward equality in all things. Conservative's see various hierarchies as natural. Conservative's believe it is dangerous to disturb old traditions and that we can only “prune and patch” what we have.

Evolutionary conservatism says we require a proper balance between order and evolution. If we are closed to evolution we can become stagnant, if we are closed to order we can become chaotic.  Steady change, not revolution, is typical in biological evolution and is the conservative way to evolve and change; we evolved three brains, one evolved upon the other---the reptilian and the mammalian brains were retained, not thrown away, even as we evolved the higher neocortex.

We cannot legitimately be morally relative as long as we are alive. We are alive with a human nature that affirms natural law derived from our bio-social human nature, and from nature itself. In politics trying to rid real human nature and culture of the deep-seated preference for kin and ethnic group is attempted by many ideologies, but the biological origin of social behavior and real human nature lead naturally to regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be conservatively established, legally, in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected from marauding imperialists, supremacists, and global money grubbers by a defensive federalism.

Natural rights suggest that all men are born with the desire to survive and reproduce successfully but natural rights do not guarantee results, since evolution cannot always guarantee results. The need for order is based most deeply on the needs of evolution, since we have a very long way to materially evolve to ascending levels of Godhood. We are “in-between” the beast and Godhood so we cannot yet claim to be divine.

How theological materialism conservatively transforms and not destroys the revealed religions


To St. Thomas and founding ascetics from other revealed religions God is completely immovable, unchanging, and also non-material, and the experience of God, or beatitude, is reached and experienced by stopping or overcoming all movable, changing, and material desires. That is the Involutionary Inward Path to the God within.

Death too is immovable, unchanging, and also non-material, while life is movable, changing, and material, yet to St. Thomas and founding ascetics from other revealed religions God resembles immovable, unchanging, and non-material death. They even say such this things as, "He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it." Matthew 10:23. To live in beatitude we must die to all material desires.

In theological materialism the Evolutionary Outward Path to real Godhood is attained by evolving to ascending levels of Godhood by way of material and supermaterial evolution, that is, by way of movable, changing, and material life and not by way of immovable, unchanging, and non-material death.

It's usually easier and more humane to transform the old way than to destroy it, that is the prudent way to change, which conservative's prefer, and so in theological materialism the Twofold Path conservatively retains the old Involutionary Inward Path to the God within as the first glimpse or symbol of God, which is transformed in the Evolutionary Outward Path of material evolution to ascending levels of real Godhood.

The West will be renewed


It as happened time and again throughout human history, the internal take-down and external invasion of developed and prosperous countries by barbarians, following too much self indulgence, the loss of virility, a devotion to constant comfort and bourgeois decadence. Then, as Wayne Allensworth points out in Chronicles (July 2019), such movements as the Christian Knights appear after the fall of Rome to pull the civilization out of Dark Ages and defend the civilization.

Walls can be built to keep pillaging migrant invaders out but then soft decadent people and greedy men demand that we tear down the walls and allow the country to be overwhelmed by cultures and races so diverse, so different from one another, that they cannot live in harmony and peace together in the same living space. And so it has gone, time and again repeated.

Well, as the great still taboo historian Wilmot Robertson wrote in 1992, what is called for is a new form of government that would transform socially destructive into socially constructive forces, this time in the form of autonomous, relatively self-sufficient ethnostates.

Human nature IS ethnocentric and kin-selecting an has been since humans became humans. Group-selection was the way for individuals to successfully survive, so altruism, or being for others, was naturally limited mainly to kin and ethnic group because they shared the same genes which strive for successful survival. Trying to rid human nature and culture of the deep-seated preference for kin and ethnic group, which is attempted by many ideologies and religions, is like trying to rid human beings of being human. That is inhumane and cruel.

I think an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be conservatively established, legally, in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, and then protected from marauding imperialists, supremacists, and global money grubbers, by a defensive-minded federalism. 

How far will we have to fall before we realize this?

Artificial intelligence is fine but it should not take the place of biological evolution


Ray Kurzweil says “Biological evolution is too slow for the human species. Over the next few decades, it’s going to be left in the dust. By the 2030, the non-biological portion of our intelligence — our technology — will predominate…”

I wonder if Kurzweil fears or hates the idea of human biological evolution. The bitterly ironic thing is if Kurzweil and his cronies control what he calls “our technology” that could give them a power advantage, a biological advantage. The revenge of the nerds.

Kurzweil sees a merger of man and machine, which could bury the distinction between the natural and artificial. Again, a disrespect for natural biology.

Artificial intelligence is fine but it should not take the place of biological evolution. AI should be an aid in the biological evolution of man to ascending levels of Godhood.

If we have to deal with nerds I prefer those in genetics and bio-engineering. We can enhance our genetic and biological capabilities endlessly as we evolve toward Godhood, but if we upload ourselves into silicone chips we could end natural evolutionary life.

Don't fall for despoiling or destroying biology and biological evolution. Will there be a war one day between the Naturals and the Artificials?

When will we get a presidential candidate who affirms the biological origin of social behavior?


Have we gone so away from real human nature that people really need to be told that “ the anus is not a sexual organ” which I saw the other day on Twitter beneath a picture of homosexual presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg?

Here are few more captions I'd like to see: “The genes hold culture on a leash,” or “biological is the origin of social behavior.”

Affirming the biological origin of social behavior is an antidote to the truly ridiculous abstractions we see today in the media, in our schools, and with our presidential candidates. We need to get back to real human nature.

Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against human nature with such experiments as the cultural Marxism of our presidential candidates but cultures are eventually pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature to cultures that better reflect real human nature.

The reality is that real human nature remains genetically and 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.

Human nature IS ethnocentric and has been since humans became humans. Group-selection was the only way for individuals to successfully survive, so altruism, or being for others, was naturally and genetically limited mainly to kin and ethnic group because they shared the same genes which strive for successful survival.

This strongly suggests that the biological origin of social behavior and real human nature lead naturally to regionalism, localism, ethnostates, and finally an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established, legally, in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected from marauding imperialists, supremacists, and global money grubbers, by a defensive federalism.

When will we get a presidential candidate who affirms the biological origin of social behavior?

The sacred goal of material life evolving to real supermaterial Godhood has been blocked


When you think of God as “Being itself ” you then are told by St. Thomas that you can strive to be a “likeness “ of God. This assumes that material life cannot become Gods since we are told that God is non-material and spiritual.

That worldview undervalues and underestimates material life and the sacred goal of material life, because it misdiagnoses the path of the material evolution of life to ascending levels of real material/supermaterial Godhood.

I don't see a “last end” where a one perfect non-material God is attained, there is only ascending levels of real Godhood reached by continual material evolution, with starts and stops along the way. Final endings and first beginnings are a human bias brought on by our own mortality.

When life is artificially divided by a false duality between the nonexistent spiritual and the existent material this undervalues, underestimates, and blocks the sacred goal of material life evolving to real supermaterial Godhood.

Moses owes many of his ethical ideals to Zarathustra


According to J.M. Chaterjee (“The Ethical Conceptions of The Gathas,1934), when the Jews were taken in conquest into the court of Nebuchadnezzar, they reformed their religion along Zoroastrian lines. Jews spent two generations among Zoroastrians and returned with most of the material for the Old Testament. Some people have even thought that Abraham was Zarathustra. 

Moses seems to owe many of his ethical ideals to Zarathustra. Joshua reformed the community from Egypt to the older religion of Zarathustra. When Moses led his people out of Egypt in the 13th century BC into Palestine Zarathustra was already seen in inscriptions of the 14th century. Worship of God at Sinai follows the train of Zarathustra. 

The Jews learned from the Iranian religion of Zarathustra the idea of the celestial hierarch, the idea of duality, temptation by the devil, the concept of non-idolatry, non-symbolical image worship, or the good-evil nature of deity, Resurrection, the concept of heaven and hell, and the evil spirit. 

The Iranian religion of Zarathustra continues the same since its founding with no abrupt change or breach with the past. Zarathustra largely agrees with the ancient Proto-Indo-European classics since the Rig Veda. 

Christianity developed from this Zoroastrian/Jewish history. I think Buddhism too might have influenced the Jewish sect of the Essenes concerning piety, celibacy, the absence of personal property and of money; Simon J. Joseph said the influence of Essenes can be detected in the pages of the New Testament.

Creating a false duality between spirit and matter unnecessarily complicates Godhood


Bradford McCall suggested in a survey of Philip Clayton's book “Mind & Emergence” (Zygon 2010) that “the Spirit is kenotically poured into creation, which onsets the long and laborious process of prebiotic evolution, leading to biological evolution toward increasing complexity. The complexification of matter, then, has its ontological origin in and through the agency of the Spirit of God. As such, the concept of creatio continua, continuing creation, is defended. The Spirit enables emergence by endowing creation and creatures with the ability to unfold by apparent natural processes according to their own inherent potentialities and possibilities." McCall said Clayton's essay “contributes to a systematic theology of creation by constructing a theological synthesis between kenosis and emergence.”

I think he had it almost right, but I have asserted that the “Spirit of God,” which I call the material activation of Tirips or the will, does not sacrifice itself in a kenosis and is not the Spirit of God but is simply the inward material activation within life always activating life to evolve in the material world to ascending levels of Godhood, while working with outward natural selection and evolution. Creating a false duality between spirit and matter unnecessarily complicates Godhood; a non-material force is not necessary and does not exist. A material world with a material or supermaterial Godhood materially evolved to brings religion and science together naturally and effortlessly, where they belong.

The goal of evolving to Godhood need not deprive us of either science or religion


Tusar Nath Mohapatra listed them as Kant's sublime, Hegel's absolute, Darwin's evolution, Schopenhauer's will, Marx's matter, Kierkegaard's passion, Nietzsche's overman, and Bergson's elan vital. In theological materialism all of them help define the material activation within life of the will or Tirips.

Those who believe in the complete randomness of evolution, the vast majority of scientists, often make dismissive comments regarding any kind of direction to evolution, usually in footnotes to show its unimportance to the text, but then the footnote’s are often emotional and long, protesting too much. I find the arguments that evolution is “non-purposive” and random as closed as the religious arguments denying evolution, information is lacking in both arguments.

I believe this great process of evolution is activated from within every atom and within every cell of living bodies, which then react and adapt to the various outside environments that life lives in. This activation includes the same activation that leads to the desire to successfully survive and reproduce. This sacred activation, which I call Tirips, is a material/supermaterial activation, not spiritual, and it works along with natural selection and evolution.

The goal of evolving to Godhood need not deprive us of either science or religion. Defining the Will or Tirips as internally activating life toward evolving toward higher and higher forms, and eventually to Godhood, may be a bit further than some people want to go, but I think we need to go there. I hope such a drive and direction will one day be acknowledged by science. and religion.

Contrary to traditional religion we can indeed immanentize the eschaton, attain ascending levels of Godhood directly within nature and evolution, when we affirm that evolution moves inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward higher and higher more effective living forms, all the way to Godhood. Our mission is to help it along the way.

Political idiots like Brad Pitt so far seem unconcerned with alienating half the American population


ABC's Oscar telecast reached all-time lows in the ratings. Good I say. Political idiots like Brad Pitt so far seem unconcerned with alienating half the American population with their smearing of Trump at these award shows, but when people stop going to their movies that could change---or maybe the ratty producers won't hire actors who can't draw an audience. I know I'll never go to a movie again with Robert De Niro in it for his gross attacks on Trump.

Actors used to be on the side of the “new thing” which is now the populist nationalism raging across Europe and America, but today's actors are cheap, vulgar, socialist, fools.

I don't like Trump's arrogant personalty either, but it's a tough world out there and regular politicians don't have the balls to make America great again.

Distortions of the material and spiritual


The mind is strictly material. Alexander Bard, a modern Zoroastrian, once pointed out (from a discontinued Google Reader) that Craig Venter invented artificial life which can reproduce itself. He used only chemicals and nothing else. Bard says everything is material and he said that the Indo-Europeans were always monists believing in one material substance over all. Bard says dualism, the belief that there is a spiritual substance separate from material, is both unscientific, nonsensical and Abrahamic, and certainly not Indo-European.

I agree that everything is material---and I include Godhood---but I think the Indo-European's became as spiritual as the Abrahamics and probably influenced them. I think what happened was in the distant past Indo-European warriors discovered techniques for helping them to endure distress without mental disturbance, mantras etc. which gave them advantages over their competitors. Specialists in these techniques then developed, teaching initiate warriors etc. Gradually this class of specialists became a priest class, and the mantras changed from material to spiritual.

Ascending levels of Gods and Godhood are strictly material and supermaterial and evolved to in the material world, activated by an inward material will or Tirips, which works along with outward natural selection and evolution. Neither the Indo-European's nor the Abrahamic's defined Gods and Godhood that way.

Toward noble art and popular art in theological materialism


The Traditionalist School doesn't like Renaissance art, or the ancient Greeks because they think art shifted from the inner presence to the outer presence (see Ananda Coomaraswamy), or from the future to the present, from spiritual to material, from Godly man to animal man.

Russell Kirk said that “decadence” can be defined as the loss of an end goal. Noble Art is basically art concerned with the goal itself, the ethical perception of Godhood, iconography, sacred objects. Noble and Popular Art are concerned with progress toward the goal, variability, evolution, common but religious objects.

Both Noble and Popular Art need to be concerned with theology because both are “heavenward leaning,” which is the old inward term for our outward material evolution toward real Godhood. The distinction is between theological and non-theological, not between cultured or primitive art. There may only be a difference in the degree of refinement.

As it turns out the so-called ignorant masses may be the only ones to preserve traditions, sometimes without even understanding them, as the decadent higher social levels have now all but broken the links.

How the Third Covenant, the Cosmic Covenant, is amenable to liberals, conservatives, scientists and religionists (from 2018)


Political philosophers talk of ideologies, religious philosophers talk of covenants, they can be combined in the Third Covenant, the Cosmic Covenant.

In the past I wrote of Three Covenants and how in the First Covenant of Primordial Tradition the Spirit and Soul of the Inward Path were understood as existing in the blood, that is, as being passed on only racially and tribally to a chosen eg. (Jewish) or noble (Aryan) people, etc.. Then Jesus Christ (and Eastern masters) brought the knowledge that the spirit and Soul-Within need not be understood and affirmed only racially or tribally but could be understood and followed by any race, any people, universally, provided they were taught the proper way to see or experience the God Within; Christianity said we were “Chosen” through faith in Christ not chosen by blood. That was the Second Covenant. Theological materialism (and the projected Theoevolutionary Church) affirms the mission and path of the Third Covenant, the Cosmic Covenant of the Evolutionary Outward Path, which revitalizes Primordial Tradition, Christianity, Hinduism etc. by once again affirming the First Covenant of genetic and biological qualities within our material evolution to supermaterial Godhood as applied to the Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood, yet also, as in the Second Covenant, this is applied to all people, all nations, all races, all people, preferably living in their own protected states or ethnostates with access to knowledge of the material evolution to Godhood. That is the synthesis of the Three Covenants in theological materialism.

The
Third Covenant acknowledges the biological origin of our social behavior and can end the intellectual separation between political ideologies and religious covenants, pointing toward the religious/political/cultural solution of the ethnopluralism hypothesis, often written about here. It is a conservative transformation---not revolution---that can bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which is the sociopolitical or political/cultural structure most in harmony with kin-centered and ethnocentric real human nature which evolved many thousands of years ago and remains with us today. Each ethnostate, each ethnic group, each race, can have access to knowledge of our sacred material evolution to supermaterial Godhood, and can pursue that sacred evolution in their own way in their own protected states, in the variety that is conducive to evolution, perhaps aided by nonpartisan international sociobiological research centers, as Raymond Cattell suggested.

I see this as a traditional and conservative and not a revolutionary undertaking, as the evolving Covenants affirm, and it is amenable
to liberals and conservatives, scientists and religionists.

As we evolve toward real Godhood


The most St Thomas Aquinas offers us is to “see” God in his essence, to “know” God is the best we can do.

But to know God is not enough, we need to become Gods by evolving in the material world to ascending levels of real Godhood. Of course, traditional religions call that an evil desire and assign it their most evil designation: satanic.

The evolution of life is not satanic it moves inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward higher and higher more effective living forms, all the way to Godhood.

If anything is evil it is the turning ones back on the material world and the sacred desire within life to evolve to the zenith of success in survival and reproduction, which is real supermaterial Godhood.

But a battle over who is evil is not necessary, at least not on the part of theological materialism, which affirms supermaterial Godhood reached by material and supermaterial evolution yet conservatively considers the evolutionary Outward Path as an improvement on the Inward Path to the symbolic inward God of Traditional religions, not an evil. (see the Twofold Path)

The activation of material life toward evolving to Godhood is the unchanging constant, but values within this basic instinct can conservatively change, as the inward will to Godhood, or Tirips, works along with outside natural selection and evolution making new discoveries and presents new challenges as we evolve toward real Godhood.

Defining beauty in the Twofold Path is a reconciliation of the sacred and profane (from 2012)


What is it like to look at something beautiful? Plato and traditional religion said beauty brought a desire akin to contemplating the good, but Burke said beauty brought a desire to possess the object.

I see Plato's contemplating the good as related to the Involutionary Inward Path to the God or Father Within whereas Burke's desire to possess the object is related to the Evolutionary Outward Path of material evolution to Godhood.

Godhood is reached through material and supermaterial evolution engaged in reproduction and survival, as life evolves and rises to the highest beauty and truth possible in the cosmos. The Inward Path must block material desires to reach the enlightenment of seeing the God Within and so material desires are called profane by ascetics. But the desire to possess is not a profane definition of beauty.

It is the Outward Path of evolution that brings back sacred beauty from its exile in the Great Spiritual Blockade of the Inward Path. This seems to suggest that what the Inward Path defines as profane is defined as sacred in the Outward Path, and vice versa. But both kinds of beauty, both paths can be affirmed in the Twofold Path. The beauty of the Inward Path is a mirror to help us see the true beauty reached in the Outward Path.

Defining beauty in the Twofold Path is a reconciliation of the sacred and profane.

Gods are far more than the bliss of experiencing the nirvana and beatitude of inward man


Joseph Campbell said, “All the gods, all the heavens, all the hells, are within you,” and regarding the revealed religions he was right, although they also think of God as outside of man. 

The Inward Paths of the ascetic practices of the revealed religions lead to the inward bliss of experiencing the nirvana and beatitude of an inward godhood, attained by blocking all material desires, and it is entirely within man: but it is not Godhood.  

Ascending levels of Godhood are reached by material bodies evolving in the Outward Path to supermaterial bodies, which means Gods are far more than the bliss of experiencing the nirvana and beatitude of inward man.

Real human nature is not an error


As I watched befuddled Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi rip up a copy of President Donald Trump's speech after his State of the Union address, in plain sight of millions of people, I realized again how important it is to have intelligent leaders. Pelosi is one of the pack of left-liberals and socialists who are stupid enough to believe that real human nature is an error, a blunder; we are supposed to not only have equality of opportunity but equality of condition for all people, that is, little difference in the possessions of wealth, social status and power for all individuals and all ethnic groups (accept whites). That is what has been taught in all our schools and broadcast in virtually all the media, and that is what Pelosi and her idiot colleagues in the Democratic Party believe, or at least say they believe.

Even after the constant political propaganda of cultural Marxism, left-liberalism, and global neoconservatism preached in all our schools and across the media, human nature remains as it has always been, genetically and 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. Race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation tend to eventually conform to the human nature reflected in identity politics.

The obvious solution to the diversity of bio-cultural identities in the world, each with its own natural urge to perpetuate itself and establish its own culture, is not to try to jam everyone together in the same territory or to demand a creed of complete equality or multiculturalism, but to establish ethnostates for all distinctive groups and then protect them from marauding imperialists, supremacists, and money grubbers, with a defensive federalism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established, legally, in the United States, adapted from our constitutional separation of powers and states.

We need leaders intelligent enough to know, and strong enough to declare, that real human nature is not an error. Soon we will need even more than populist-nationalist President Trump wants for the nation.

Becoming Godhood in evolution


St. Thomas said that “The last end of human life is beatitude” and that the beatitude of man is the perfect act of seeing or feeling the divine being, which to humans is also the highest mode of Being. Buddha did much the same thing in advocating the non-material path to nirvana. That position undervalues both God and man.

According to Buddhism true reality is emptiness, which we can only see when we do not “cling” to self and phenomena, and thus see true reality. This is called “liberation” from bondage. The goal is to feel neither attachment or aversion to the world. That is liberation and beatitude, the description of the bliss felt from freeing the mind and body of all material desires. That also suggests hedonism, the ethical theory that pleasure is the highest good and proper aim of human life. That blissful condition of Christ and Buddha is a high category of hedonism hypertrophied and experienced by freeing the body and mind of all passion, and all material desires---which is no easy task.

Beatitude and Nirvana are are not the goal of the Evolutionary Outward Path to real Godhood, they are the goal of the Involuntary Inward Path to the nirvana of the Inward God or Father-Within, the Heaven-Within which Jesus Christ sought and found.

Godhood is not merely calculation, not meditation, not presence, not intuition, not deduction, and not the human experience of bliss. Godhood is a real supermaterial object, or objects, reached through material and supermaterial evolution. The highest act of life is not merely to have blissful intellectual intuition of God, it is to become Godhood in evolution.

Even so, in the Twofold Path we can conservatively retain or include the intellectual intuition of God, seen in the Involutionary Inward Path to the Soul-Within, but we must not be blocked there in a Great Spiritual Blockade. We must move on to the Evolutionary Outward Path, which is materially activated so that we can, through material and supermaterial evolution, become real Godhood.

Can perfection be reached? No, just as perfection in evolution is never final, at least not until Godhood is attained, and even then evolution continues endlessly with ascending levels of Godhood, with no ending and no beginning.

Change does not require the great destruction of radical revolutions


The far right dreams too much, not unlike the impractical idealism of the left. The far right needs to add a big dose of conservatism to their plans. The best of the past needs to be retained not only because it's tried and true, but because you can't successfully destroy the long traditions of the people, as the Soviets and the Nazis found out.

For example, affirming the biological origin of social behavior is an antidote to the wild abstractions not only of 19th and 20th century ideologies but also to conflicting religious claims of moral superiority. Understanding the biological origin of social behavior, which comes naturally and instinctively, leads to a better understanding the reality of living and competing in the real world.

The biological origin of social behavior and real human nature, which is primarily kin and ethnic centered, leads naturally to regionalism, localism, and eventually to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions, which could be established, legally, in the United States with our Constitutional separation of powers and states, and then protected from marauding imperialists, supremacists, and global money grubbers by a defensive federalism. All groups could then get on better within the natural business of ethnostates and could even aid in our material evolution toward real Godhood.

Change does not require the great destruction of radical revolutions, the patience and fortitude of a natural evolutionary conservatism brings lasting change.

Reality is politically incorrect, so what is our best chance of finding real long-term harmony and peace?


I don't know if it should be called a tragedy, a great belief destined to experience downfall, or ignorance, a lack of knowledge or information, it's probably some of both, but the ancient and modern dream of both religion and politics of having complete harmony and peace between distinctly different ethnic groups or races existing together in peace in the same living space is contrary to real human nature.  

This does not mean harmony and peace are not possible. When real human nature is understood as derived from the biological origin of our social behavior, when biology is understood as the hardware and culture as the software, when it is understood that the related genes in ethnic groups offer many reasons for cooperating more successfully and harmoniously than with other ethnic groups, when it is understood that our social behavior is largely determined by the deepest need to be successful in the survival and reproduction of our genes and culture, then we will have a chance of finding real long term harmony and peace.  

Edward O. Wilson said: "The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool. The brain is a product of evolution. Human behavior. . .is the circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact. Morality has no other demonstrable ultimate function." 

Human nature is ethnocentric and has been since humans became humans. Group-selection was the only way for individuals to successfully survive, so altruism, or being for others, was naturally limited mainly to kin and ethnic group because they shared the same genes which strive for survival. Trying to rid human nature and culture of the deep-seated preference for kin and ethnic group, which is attempted by many ideologies and religions, is like trying to rid human beings of being human. That is inhumane and cruel.

With this in mind we can see why the left-liberalism and cultural Marxism taught in our schools and blared from the media, and even the religious dream of the lion laying down the lamb, have not brought peace and harmony.  

 As I wrote here a few days ago secession is not my first preference, it seems too radical to me. I prefer to conservatively and legally apply or adapt the U. S. constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions, protected from marauding imperialists, supremacists, and money grubbers, by a light federalism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions defines deep-conservatism, or evolutionary conservatism. That will be the best chance all of us have of finding real long-term harmony and peace.

When a sports culture strays too far away from behavior that benefits the people


I will be watching the Super Bowl again this year, but I am getting tired of watching the unpatriotic and anarchic behavior of athletes in general and black athletes in particular. Sports have been the one place where modern men can escape the political correctness of cultural Marxism, but professional sports have changed over the years as the athletes changed from white to black athletes. That's not a “racist” statement it's just a fact. The sports of the traditional English and American culture have changed to a more barbarian and savage professional sports.

What has not changed is the biological and genetic origin of most of our social behavior. Sports are a microcosm of the larger political reality showing us that as the people change the culture changes. When a sports culture (or political culture) strays too far away from behavior that enhances the successful survival and reproduction of a people then the culture is pulled back, consciously or unconsciously, to cultural behavior that benefits the people who partake in the culture. To put it simply, if T.V. ratings for sports fall (which has been happening in the NBA) it will be because in a competitive world white men will tire of watching strutting black athletes trash white culture while becoming multi-millionaires. It's only natural.

Real human nature tells us why Zogby poll favors secession and ethnostates


A Zogby poll in 2018 found that 39 percent of Americans favor secession and 29 percent aren't sure, which means 68 percent will consider the concept. (Chronicles, July 2019). I read that several times because I had never seen those figures before, the corrupted schools and the fake media hide those statistics.

Secession is not my first preference, which seems too radical to me, I prefer to conservatively and legally apply or adapt the constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions. Radical revolutionaries are usually strangled in their cribs. And without a federal defense complete secession from the union could leave the new ethnostate vulnerable to marauding imperialists, supremacists, and global money grubbers.

It turns out that conservatism as defined by sociobiology can be one of the best ways to survive and reproduce successfully over the long term, but few conservatives seriously apply the insights of sociobiology in defense of conservative principles. 

I would like to see the conservatism of Russell Kirk and George Kennan expanded to include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions, which I call deep-conservatism, or evolutionary conservatism. Even with the constant political propaganda of cultural Marxism, left-liberalism, and global neoconservatism constantly preached in all our schools and across the media, human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting, which naturally points toward and ethnopluralism of ethnostates...Real human nature tells us why the Zogby poll favors secession and ethnostates.

The Great Ancient Error


(Here is my speculations on the origin of the great spiritual blockade developed by traditional religions and what to do about it, modified a bit from 2008.)

The great error of the ancient Proto?-Indo-Europeans was in defining the activation within as spiritual and as God rather than as the material activation to Godhood. From this error, came the great spiritual blockade, which eventually banished the material world, even to the point of describing all material things as evil.

In the distant past Indo-European warriors of Hyperborea? discovered techniques for helping them to endure distress without mental disturbance, mantras etc. which gave them advantages over their competitors. Specialists in these techniques then developed, teaching initiate warriors etc. Gradually this class of specialists became a priest class.

As long as the techniques for helping warriors to endure distress were used for warrior purposes the great error was undeveloped. This was perhaps the high point in ancient Indo-European civilization, that is, when the inward activation, which I define as Tirips, was reached or applied primarily for the purpose of helping warriors to victory. When attaining the the inward activation or Tirips became an end in itself decline set in. The priest class became ascendant over the warrior class. The Activation Within was declared the Kingdom of God Within, and the primary purpose of existence was now to attain this God or Spirit Within. Material life, including the warrior life, was degraded and the great spiritual blockade of material life and material evolution began in earnest.

All the Revealed Religions followed this Inward Path in what has since been called the Perennial Philosophy. Perhaps some branches sought to return the balance between warriors and priests. Perhaps Zarathushtra, or his ancestors, diverged from the main group for this reason. But all branches continued the great error of defining the Spirit Within as God, and God as spiritual rather than supermaterial, and all branches of the
Revealed Religions continued the great spiritual blockade against the material desires of the world.

Theological materialism and the projected Theoevolutionary Church seek to address this ancient error. The God Within is seen as the inward material activation of Tirips, activating evolving material life toward ascending levels of Godhood while working along with outside natural selection and evolution.

Theological materialism does not reject the inward activation as the secularists do, it corrects the misdefined involutionary inward path and defines Godhood as that which we must evolve to in the material and supermaterial world, which is the evolutionary outward path to real Godhood.

Warriors perhaps can affirm the period in ancient Indo-European History when the inward material activation of Tirips was applied primarily to helping the warriors, before the time when attaining the “spirit” within was defined as the primary purpose of existence. But we now apply this ethos to the Twofold Path, the inward and the outward paths, toward evolving in the material world toward ascending levels of Godhood.

What would John Randolph do?


In the 1800's “Old Republicans” like John Randolph disliked the banks, even state banks, he was opposed to borrowing and debt, and opposed to the concentration of economic power, he advocated a simple agricultural economy. But his opposition didn't stop these things from happening in the United States. The “Fed,” America's central bank, became the most powerful single actor in the U.S. economy and the world, and it is unconstitutional. 

As Zbigniew Mazurak put it, “The Constitution clearly says that the Feds’ role is only to provide for the common defense, manage foreign relations, protect citizens’ constitutional rights, establish federal courts; apply and explain federal law (in the judiciary’s case); and a few other minor issues. No branch of the Federal Government is authorized to handle any other issues. So the federal establishment should be strictly limited to these tasks; all others should be reassigned to the states, local governments, and individual Americans.”

Human nature tends to be hierarchical and the Constitution wisely tried to deal with that reality by separating the powers and the states. But the centralizing of power took place anyway, in spite of the heroic attempts of people like John Randolph. Marauding imperialists, supremacists, and global money grubbers changed the nation to benefit themselves and soon opened the borders to virtually all immigrants, which therefore eventually changed the culture to the degree that white Americans and their culture will soon be a minority in their own country.

Real human nature remains genetically and 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. So race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation tend to eventually conform to the biological human nature reflected in identity politics. 

This strongly suggests that the biological origin of social behavior and real human nature lead naturally to regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established, legally, in the United States with our original constitutional separation of powers and states. The Feds most important role would be to provide for the common defense of the ethnostates against marauding imperialists, supremacists, and money grubbers. John Randolph might even approve.

What bestows Being?


At this point I see no need for Heidegger's overly complicated “Ereignis,” the “event of appropriation,” the oblivion of Being, etc., in explaining the “bestowing” of Being. What bestows Being? The activating Spirit-Will, or Tirips, is the inward activating material drive of evolution within life which bestows beings and Being in the cosmos working along with outside natural selection and evolution, activating life to evolve to ascending levels of Godhood. Such natural things as big bangs, or electric universes, contain Tirips within the chemistry of the cosmos which activates life to evolve toward Godhood again and again. But Tirips is not God, it activates toward Godhood by way of material and supermaterial evolution.

Why evolutionary realism in the arts (from 2012)


Do we seek the clarity of the classicist or the infinite (Burke's sublime) of the romantic in the arts? Adapting Robert Ellwood's view of Carl Jung and Burke, I would say our ignorance of Godhood causes us to give form to archetypes going forward in evolution to Godhood and inward to the activating Spirit-Will or Tirips which activates life.

Kant said we cannot fully know reality but I think that we will know much more reality when we evolve to ascending levels of Godhood, and we will also know more of truth and beauty. This is a romantic notion but since it also seeks absolute truth it seeks the clarity of classicism.

I split the difference and use the art term "evolutionary realism" as less weighted than romantic classicism, and also since evolution is so central to the theological materialism of the projected Theoevolutionary Church. This also blends the Darwinian and the phenomenological.

The Grotesque Grammy's


The Grammy Awards last night were a dump of emotionalism, arrested development, exhibitionism, freaks, transvestites, whites trying to sing like blacks, and hillbilly's condescendingly tolerated by the black dominated ceremony.

The Grammy's certainly do declare the death of white culture and there is not much worse than destroying the values and morals of the youth. The producers of this cultural destruction began their march through pop culture back in 1950's which introduced naturally conservative white music to naturally anarchistic black music, and we ended up last night with screaming wannabe-black Aerosmith and black hip hop Run-DMC together doing “Walk This Way.” I suppose it was their ludicrous way of trying to be inclusively “woke.”

This Dionysian mess was many worlds away from the Aristotelian stiff upper lip of traditional culture. I hold the producers of pop culture responsible for this degeneration...To think that Socrates was killed merely for corrupting the minds of the youth of Athens with Socratic reasoning.

Goodness and pleasure are aspired to for the same reason: they both materially evolve toward Godhood


Contrary to St Thomas the natural impulses or instincts toward pleasure etc. are not from God, like the other natural instincts they lead to Godhood---while pleasure and the natural instincts are secondary as an aid in the drive to successful survival and reproduction, they are also a natural aid in evolving toward the ultimate success of ascending levels of Godhood.

Goodness and pleasure are aspired to for the same reason: they both materially evolve toward Godhood. These things do not move from the material to the spiritual, they move from the material to the supermaterial. Defining God as spiritual not only defames the material world it defames and blocks the material evolution to ascending levels of real Godhood.

The swamping of the global north by the global south and what to do about it


Population fertility rates comparing the global south and the global north (Philip Jenkins, Chronicles, June 2019) tell us that Muslim populations went from representing 13 percent of the global population in 1946 to 25 percent of global population today, from 40 million people to at least 500 million today, and that is mainly from states marked by poverty. The African population has grown fivefold since 1946, and they are migrating north. Meanwhile Western white birth rates are stagnating and whites are dying faster than being born.

No wonder populist nationalism and ethnic identity politics have risen in the West! Western people naturally want to live not die, even as the brain-washed and suicidal liberal-left seek to destroy populist nationalism and ethnic identity politics.

How did this happen? Was Christianity the only movement encouraging Western whites to have babies? It seems so, but the Hollywood/New York/Washington media was also responsible for the war against traditional values and morals in America. And modern technology gradually took away the importance of having babies as the traditional gender roles of women and men changed (even though biological gender differences did not change) making it possible for either gender to push the buttons on missiles or robot vacuum cleaners.

Can we hope only for more people to become populist-nationalists in the face of a powerful media and the liberal left which hates populist-nationalists and hates all "deplorables" living between the East and West coast in America? How will we deal with the demographic changes in America when we know that as the demographics change the culture changes?

If real kin and ethnic-centered human nature is allowed to be what it is, it naturally leads to regionalism, localism, ethnostates, and finally an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. In the U. S. this could be accomplished by adapting the U.S. constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. All elements of the changed demographics in America could then be what they naturally are in ethnostates---and they will need to be protected from marauding imperialists, supremacists, global money grubbers, and the migrating global south, with a very defensive federalism.

I think the defense of the global north by populist nationalism and ethnic identity politics, along with the rise of ethnostates, will continue to grow, if we can keep from being utterly destroyed by the actions and influence of the liberal-left, the Hollywood/New York/Washington media, and the phony neoconservatives.

How valuable an aid homogeneity is in forming a balanced political union



Balance is important in many things, it seems to be an art as well as a science. When the founders of the United States worked toward a balance of freedom and order, etc. it involved many elements that they hoped would form an integration, harmony, counterbalances, proportion, etc.  

Defining human nature had to somehow synchronize with defining social laws. A view that human nature was mainly individualist or mainly group-centered, equal or unequal, etc. would affect the outcome and the balance. Did it call for more government control or less government control? And how to handle the differing definitions and opinions of these things?  

We can see how valuable an aid homogeneity is in forming a balanced political union. The cultural, social, biological, ethnic and other similarities within a group affect the balancing of freedom and order, social laws and cultural mores; how much more difficult it is to balance heterogeneity and dissimilarities.  

I argue that heterogeneity and multiculturalism within the same living space make social balance virtually impossible, because real human nature is universally kin-centered, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, among other conservative things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection. These things are best balanced in real ethnostates. The balance that the founders of the United States worked toward, the freedom and order they sought, worked as long as the United States was culturally, socially, biologically, and ethnically homogeneous, Euro-American, and naturally became unbalanced when we were not.  

When real kin and ethnic-group-centered human nature is allowed to be what it is, it naturally leads to regionalism, localism, ethnostates, and finally, if we are wise, an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. In the U. S. this could be accomplished by adapting the U.S. constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. All elements of the changed demographics in America could then be what they naturally are in ethnostates, protected from marauding imperialists, supremacists, and global money grubbers, by a light federalism.
