The following is based on the supposition that unity comprises multiplicity in order to realise itself.
The interaction of unity and multiplicity is called ConsciousNess and regarded as an inter-extrapolation that relates in a viewpoint which manifests ConsciousNess.
(The particular spelling is to emphasise the relativity of Conscious: purposeful, aware – and Ness: being, existence)
In 2750, an Egyptian priest of Ptah paraphrased it like this: “The seeing of the eyes, the hearing of the ears and the breathing of the nose report to the mind; the mind is the centre of cognition, the tongue expresses the recognised” – and since this cognition consists of a reflection & projection, the priest added – “thus gods are made”.
The Egyptians called the cognition Hoor Paar Kraat (Horus the Child) and its Reflection & Projection Isis & Osiris. This relativity, or state of ConsciousNess, did apparently not suffice, as they reflected & projected Isis & Osiris with Nephtys & Seth, setting off a contrary Reflection/Projection (R/P) dynamic, wherein Horus became the arbiter of its pole positions – or field limits – and thus an intermediate viewpoint.
Cultures subjected to this contrary R/P dynamic, called it a war of gods. In the Egyptian version, Seth divided Osiris and claimed his throne – or pole position – which put him into opposition to Horus, who joined (wed) his “mother” Isis. With the son of this marriage the entire process repeated itself – that is: the contrary R/P field and its intermediate viewpoint were doubled and turned into an eight-pole R/P dynamic which filled the Egyptian pantheon with numerous Horus (& Osiris) variants.
The history of Egyptian ConsciousNess (or religion) demonstrates, that it was henceforth governed by attempts to restrain this division-multiplication process through a 9th pole (or god) –which might have been the first monopolistic (or monotheistic) attempt to transform the intermediate into an absolute viewpoint – in order to fix the pole positions and thus inhibit the creation of additional R/P fields and viewpoints.
It is not known if the priests realised that thereby they fixed the contraries too, or if they feared losing their prosperous pantheon-managements, when they exiled this so called “Aton” to (or with) the Israeli tribes, whom he henceforth ruled under the term JHVH. And it was the son (Jesus) of this (four-poled) contrary R/P field, whose (cross-shaped) coordinate got established in the Hellenic time/space, where it became a principal pattern for the formation of the Occident.
The R/P patterns of the Egyptians and the ancient Greeks were similar, except that the Greeks established four intermediary viewpoints and thus a contrary field within contrary fields, which brought about a R/P mode that was to become renown as rationalism (after the Latin ratio = calculation) and to give birth to the philosophers and geometricians who separated the fields and assigned one to psyche and one to soma (mind & matter), turning them into the cornerstones of a polarisation-dynamic that was going to shape – with the help of religion and science – the occidental cultures.
In 1904 appeared LIBER AL VEL LEGIS. LAL reveals that when Dualisms reach their (linear) limits, a (non-linear) inter/extrapolation takes place which forms the selfcomplementary R/P relativity of Selfconsciousness.
The Inter/Extrapolation of its R/P-equations (for convenience sake numbered 2-8, 3-7, 4-6) is envisioned spherical and depicted as the following:
The R/P poles interrelate in 3 phases: 4~6 cognition 3~7 understanding and 2~8 (Self) knowledge – 5 marks the Point of View, O the circumference and 1-1 (LAL eleven) the R/P equation of SelfConsciousNess.
In LAL it is called a star, embodying a microcosm which relates a macrocosm. Macrocosm is the inter/extrapolation-sphere of stars, or microcosms. The force of their inter/extrapolation is Love under Will.
Reflections & Projections are time/space relativities of the inter/extrapolation of ConsciousNess.
There are three principal Reflection/Projection modes – the alternating, whose manifestations complement each other – the contrary, where they contrast each other, and the dualistic R/P, whose manifestations appear separate.
The alternating R/P is typical for the Orient, whereas the contrary R/P has been dominating the Egyptian, Mesopotamian and Hellenic cultures and became the foundation of the dualistic R/P that determines the Occident and its cultures.
(Orient & Occident represent here R/P systems as well as cerebral & global hemispheres)
Every R/P mode has a characteristic time/space and corresponding life- & death rites.
In the alternating R/P the dissolving body (soma) is left to earth, fire, water or air, while the psyche is kept alive with rituals – particularly where it is believed to be essential for the re-incarnation of the soma aspect.
In the contrary R/P the body receives a space, or room, furnished with life-utensils, while (notably in Egypt) symbols and data-cards (Stele) are employed to keep the diseased present. With the doubling of the R/P field, that space is perceived as another world (or dimension) wherein the deceased has to justify his existence to the gods in charge of it – i.e. of the measures and values it is composed of.
In Dualism the times & spaces of the living & the dead are not only divided, but also fractured by the counter-dynamics of its R/P fields. Thus the dead wind up in heavens above and hells below, while the spaces of the living get subdivided into sections for you & me, pasts & futures, inner & outer worlds, one for psyche and one for soma, in short: times & spaces for everything they fear from death – and hope from it as well, since their existence is not only determined by their fear of death, but also by their fear of life.
Existence is to realise ConsciousNess. In the alternating R/P system, existence appears as a change and in the contrary as an action/reaction that triggers in Dualism feedback-emotions (mostly in form of fear) and promotes notions like existence being a fight, or even a will, of survival. However, fear is not will, but weakness.
Fear restricts the interactivity of psyche & soma. (mind & body)
The myriad varieties of psyche-soma relativities and the ways they affirm and express themselves, demonstrate the innumerable Selfrealisation possibilities of ConsciousNess and its lust & joy of existence.
In undivided R/P systems the lust & joy of existence are revered with sex, art & war, and in some cultures with the sacrifice of the body to the feast of life. In the Occident, where the separation of life & death culminated in the sacrifice of the son of its god, and where the lust & joy of existence got corrupted by a religion that thrives on misery and merchant-emotions, not only lust & joy degenerated, but also the understanding that when the body dissolves, there remains that which is reflected & projected as its life and death.
Thus there is the death of those whose existence is determined by fear & hope – and the death of those who associate it with the death of the dogs.
There is the death of the one who consumes himself in the fire of Selfrealisation and there is the dissolution of the one who determines his life as well as his death. To him existence is the Great Ritual and death the crown of it.
Who designs his life with death in sight, can be certain of a rich life as well as of a rich death.
Survival concepts may intensify the experience of existence through emotions like fear & hope – but they also confine it into a time/space with a deadly exit.
The constellations of the manifestations of ConsciousNess are interactive; their reciprocal changes maintain the balance of existence.
The formation- & dissolution phases of the constellations are concurrent.
Every constellation comprises poles that determine its time/space. The poles unite in Here/Now, which thus also functions as transformation point of the manifestation.
When a constellation dissolves, its components become part of another constellation.
The transition phase is commonly called “nothing” and interpret as absence of existence. However, there is no absence of existence, but only an absence of its coherence, or an (local time/space)interruption of its continuity.
To claim that the components of existence eliminate each other in order to survive is to claim that existence destroys itself in order to exist. This (for the dual/linear perspective typical) contradiction impedes the awareness that the combination possibilities of existence are infinite.
The ways the interrelations of the constellations of ConsciousNess are observed, reveal also the patterns and dynamics of the observers Selfrealisation attempts.
ConsciousNess is a self-complementary continuum stimulated by Will & Love.
Will & Love are the strong force of ConsciousNess.
Will is the force of creation and Love the force that relates (unites) its manifestations.
Will has no cause, nor can it be deduced from effects – Will is cause and effect, both are united through Love.
Will is absolute – unless subjected to morals & purpose, or otherwise adulterated.
Will cannot be willed, as there are no two Wills.
Seeking the origins of Will and the construction plans of creation is seeking to avoid self-responsibility.
There are lots of talks about free will, usually motivated by the hope to get wishes fulfilled, but where there is Will there are neither wishes nor hopes.
Where Will is divided, weaknesses arise.
The force of Will & Love might be measured through weaknesses, but woe him who tries to measure it.
The force of Will & Love expresses as harmony, beauty & joy – the lack of it as discontinuity, sadness and filth.
Will & Love is also the force of imagination & inspiration – both are essential for self-design.
Everyone is (ought to be) his own creator and has as such infinite self-design possibilities – each of them having, when motivated by the Will & Love to realise oneself, the potential to bring about a self-image wherein all creations complement each other.
Self-design is practised in every R/P system and an option for him who is unable to realise himself in Dualism and has difficulties with the Selfrealisation envisioned and practised in the Orient.
There is active and passive self-design, the active projects and the passive reflects a self-image, both complement each other through Will & Love.
In the reflection Will & Love may be localised (reasoned, moralised, etc), but that brings about reaction-images which are not complementary.
In the projection is no space for reasons and morals – however there might be a lack of Will & Love that weakens the reflection.
To weak self-images strong projections may appear as a threat– but that should not restrain the projection, otherwise the force of Will & Love gets dispersed.
The same happens when the projection is tested, since the test affects the reflection – moreover, there is no test for perfection.
Nor is the projection to be charged with expectations, as they get amplified by the reflection, causing divisions and multiplications that interrupt the interactivity of micro- and macro cosmos and fracture the self-image.
The projection has to be free of emotions, reasons and other restrains, in order to enable the reflection to complement the self-image according to its Will & Love.
Self-design enhances the awareness of the Selfrealisation process. The awareness gets impaired when the self-image lacks lust and joy, is loaded and distorted with emotions, mistreated with causalities and moralities, subjugated to parasitical selfrealisation-attempts and/or infected with the possession virus.
Disorder arises when the Self-designer, instead of exercising his will, represents and executes the wills of “others” – adopts handed down identity rites – or subjugates himself to commercial, religious, ideological and collective identification schemes.
Self-design is subject to Will & Love, the strong force of ConsciousNess. The lack of it could be regarded as a personal debility-period, were there not the many representatives of the weak forces who, for lack of own images & orders, attach themselves to those of the strong. A relationship (in collective-images represented by rulers and serfs) that seems inevitable, since the strong and the weak forces are complementary and attempts to change this relativity are its balance-mechanisms in order for everything to remain as it is.
But the self-designer ought not to rely on such “auto-controls”, as he is responsible for every aspect of his order – and his weak and their weaknesses are part of it.
One manner of self-design is to arrange the components of the self-image according to their capability to complement each other. In such case it is of little consequence what its reference points are called, or which shapes, scales and quantities they present, as every unity is infinite. Nevertheless, it is recommendable to keep the reference points interchangeable and in small numbers, in order to have a flexible and clear self-image.
In rigid structures a reference point might receive disproportionate attributes and thus a priority that provokes comparisons which impede the interactivity of the components and the harmony of the self-image.
Ill ordered self-images may be rearranged with sex and drugs – but with care, as sex can alter the pole positions of the psyche-soma-relativity, whereas every drug has a particular potential and amplifies the intentions it is taken with.
Drugs can also be used to stimulate the imagination that helps furnishing the self-image – which ought to be splendorous, as it intensifies the awareness.
To claim a self-image being objectively true, is a lie and a fatal one, not because it hides an objective truth – as some of its gurus claim – but because it paralyses the creativity and makes the creator a victim, or prisoner, of his creation.
One cannot change oneself – but one can realise oneself.
The notion of changing oneself is self-denial and most common in Dualism, because of its presumption, that the viewpoints which relate its manifestations, are having different time/space positions. A misconception that leads – due to the counter-dynamics of the (dualistic) R/P fields – to the assumption that one could be different than one is, and that one state of existence is imperfect and another better – or at least: more advantageous.
There are more perverse ways of self-denial, like the Judaic/Christian concept of Homo being the crown of a creation whose aim it is, that he subjugates its manifestations – and thus himself.
Another currently popular self-denial is the Occidental evolution- and selection dogma; despite that it should lead, according to its own logic, to the realisation that every man & woman is what he/she projects/reflects and that therefore no one can be elevated or put down, improve, worsen or otherwise be changed.
The in every R/P system common (because most simple) manner of self-denial, is the causality concept, according to which a manifestation is either the cause, or the effect of another manifestation. A notion that not only undermines the self-response-ability of Homo, but makes him to a victim as well, even more so, when he tries to find causes for his existence and begins to reason it – and thus himself.
Reason is a close circuit, as it compels to reason itself and thus to invent respective reasons, triggering a division/multiplication process which often determines the search for oneself and at times the identity rites of an entire culture.
Reason becomes fatal when Homo tries to reason his existence in order to confirm his interpretations of it, because this leads to an intellectual fundamentalism which justifies its thereby growing walls with its own reasons and deprives their builders (and victims) of the possibility to question them, by declaring them as their sole meaning and purpose. Nevertheless, reason might – when driven to its own limits – lead to the cognition that the entrance to its labyrinth is its exit as well.
Order arises from Will & Love – disorders take place where this strong force of ConsciousNess is lacking.
There are no by chance orders. There are the manifestations of the alternating and of the contrary R/P modes and the – in time & space scattered- manifestations of Dualism (which sometimes do seem to relate to each other by chance). And then there is the Point of View of the R/P equation, the unknown factor of its manifestations, which cannot be known, i.e. reflected/projected, without fracturing their order.
Disorder is a discontinuity-field, or –phase, which disappears as soon as its components are transferred to, or absorbed by a unity.
Unity comprises multiplicity and a corresponding number of possibilities to realise itself. When the possibilities are differentiated, multiplicity is established.
Unity cannot be measured, but only cognised and understood. The unities of measurements are half-measures that can be added up and concealed with unity-terms, but such Selfrealisation attempts are self-deceptions as they veil the quintessence of unity and thus of SelfConsciousNess.
The dimension of unity can neither be related nor located – but only be experienced.
Dimensions that can be related, are division/multiplication abstructs. They may serve to focus on unity, but cannot effect it, since its time/space is not extended – wherefore unity disappears when manipulated.
Every manifestation of ConsciousNess contains an unknown factor, which – when known – becomes another manifestation – thus multiplicity is born. Multiplicity is the cradle of differentiation – differentiation is subject to the R/P modes – their viewpoints cause restrictions – restriction retards Selfrealisation.
Attempts to reverse this process are many and differ according to the R/P modes – but rarely seem to make it past Ego.
Ego is a close circuit that consists of 8 R/P poles with 2 viewpoints which relate the poles in a cube-like manner.
When the two viewpoints check each other, a pseudo-self-consciousness comes about that has deceived Homo in all hemispheres & ages and been the cause of most of his troubles – particularly concerning his Selfrealisation quest.
The worldwide increasing popularity of Ego is probably because its two viewpoints are used as time/space coordinates, whereas its pseudo-self-consciousness appears as a kind of unity.
11 Homo & Beast
Where Conscious & Ness (existence) are handled separately, the psyche-soma relativity is usually divided into Beast & Homo and the latter tries to identify, formulate and assert himself through discrimination, oppression and eradication of the former. And as with his civilisation projects his identity problems grow as well, Homo degrades everyone as a beast (primitive, aborigine) who manages his existence without analysing, dissecting and categorising himself in order to assemble from the fragments an identity. Which Homo has not managed yet either – nor the elimination of his beast. In contrary – considering the obstinacy with which it attacks his religious & moral abstructs, wrecks his societies and wages wars with ever more and vicious weapons – it seems to be bend to eliminate its host.
As Homo cannot make peace with his Beast, without losing an adversary on whom he has built most of his self-concepts & -conceits, he searches for parallels in his perverted imaginations and interpretations of animal-beasts, obviously to find reasons and excuses for his behaviour and, last not least, to escape responsibility through generalisations – a method he has been using to justify and to transfer his vices and weaknesses since he has become aware of them. However, generalisation leads also in Dualism back to its originator, which is probably why his theo- socio- psycho-logists try to isolate the space between its R/P fields (often call hell, third-world & sub-consciousness) and to use it as a hiding place, or garbage dump, for everything whose return he fears. A risky method, as it eliminates the responsibility, but not the contents and their relativities which, thus unattended, can unfold dynamics that impede his* Selfrealisation-attempts.
* The dominance of the male-pronoun expresses his predominant role in the mishaps of man-kind.
In every R/P system the projection has been given male and the reflection female attributes. Thus, when man tried to reflect his origin, it became a female goddess, or mother nature, and when, in order to assert himself, he began to project the male attributes into his intermediate viewpoint, he became the origin of all evil and woman the sufferer of it.
Classic examples are the marriage of Osiris/Horus & Isis and the (god) father/son relationship of Christianity, where Mary had to pay for their identity crisis and woman became the altar of the schizophrenias of man. And still is – despite his equal-rights-propaganda – because the only right he concedes is for her to adapt to his preconceptions and to let herself accordingly be treated, traded, evaluated – and of course be blamed for his failures, since it is shame with which her chains her in all cultures, ages and R/P systems to his schemes – especially those of his confused loves and desires.
Homo bases most of his deeds & concepts on emotions, despite that they do (in all epochs, regions and R/P systems) enslave him and even endanger his existence by inciting him to wars and other forms of suicide.
(Emotions are time/space motions of the Reflections/Projections, and thus weak forces of ConsciousNess)
That Sapiens, the offspring of Homo*, does not try to get rid of emotions either, is probably because they seem to relate him in time/space and thus verify his existence. Moreover he justifies his emotions, claiming them to be essential for his survival as well as for being human, which might be also the reason for his belief that emotions make up a “person” (Latin: mask of actor). A belief that is reaching religious scales, considering that all the lost, the losers and those who want to play a role in life, make – with the help of media & commerce – ever more spectacles of their emotions, turning them into the most popular and successful self-deception-tool of modern times.
* see chapter 19
As this cannot be blamed on a lack of intellect – after all Sapiens exercises this feedback mechanism plentiful (some say: to much) – it can only be a lack of will to investigate and to manage himself. Which in turn is strange, as he explores and orders every aspect of his external world and manipulates even its tiniest aspects according to his supposed needs and (of course) emotions. But perhaps he confuses his needs and emotions – latter are certainly not what he needs.
The most misleading emotions, regarding Selfrealisation, are wishes and desires as, being substitutes of Will & Love, they stir the belief of Sapiens to be able to become something else than he is, which furthers his confusion as well as the disorientation of his escape culture.
Emotions can affect the interrelationships of the manifestations of ConsciousNess to such a degree, that a particular time/space appears to be dominated by particular emotions and particular emotions to be typical for a particular epoch and region.
There are innumerable works about emotions and their effects, but only few do mention that emotions can be addictive too. An omission that ought not to surprise, since addicts do not only tend to deny their predicament, but elaborate sophisticated cover-ups, excuses & deceptions, and sometimes even try to seduce and to corrupt those who do not cherish anxiety, angst, distrust, hatred, envy, greed, frustration, grief, guilt, shame, hostility, regret, humiliation, jealousy, rage, remorse, resentment, sadness, sorrow…
Most emotions emanate from fear & hope – some are mixtures of the two – all obstruct Self-realisation.
Oriental, foremost Hindu, Taoist & Buddhist thinkers, developed plenty of techniques to control, reduce and eradicate emotions – and apparently without turning into robots, as some emotion-promoters fear; in contrary, it seems that practitioners of these methods live a much fuller and more humane* life.
(*humane: acting in a manner that causes the least harm to people, animals and nature)
However emotions can be useful too when, in face of all that, scorn and anger arise, inflaming the desire to get rid of this “ill ordered house” (LAL III-11) – and if they are joined by pride and the lust to fight, the much the better, as they enable to attack vigorous and joyful all that which obstructs Selfrealisation.
13 Mind & Self
The reflection/projection capability of mind is the cause of many of its controversies – and their solution as well, as it can bring about a self-awareness that supersedes subjective-objective, internal-external & other dualisms.
Mind accumulates and transforms the manifestations of ConsciousNess – Self is the coordinate and core of mind – Will & Love is the force of Self.
It is counterproductive to search for Self as its space/time is here/now – nor is it to be subjected to the feedback-mechanism of the intellect, or otherwise constrained – but wholeheartedly (mindedly) embraced.
Self is the vessel of All and thus hidden in it.
Collective-images are used by their designers to define and to confirm themselves and are thus parasitic self-images.
That parasitic self-images are more popular than ever and their designers held in high esteem, is because those who don’t create own images do serve others – a relationship that is cultivated by parasites in order to secure their supplies. In the alternating R/P mode they only need to convince those who feed them, that through recycling (reincarnation) they eventually are going to become consumers too. The parasites of the contrary R/P nourish themselves through its contradictions, as they bring fourth more viewpoints (opinions) and respective servants, while simultaneously hiding their parasitic projections and reflections. In Dualism and its linear relationships latter is hardly needed, since it suffices to declare its parasitic relationships as a genetic, evolutionary or cultural inevitability – which is certainly true where possession- & parasitic- relationships determine a culture. Its growth manifests in the number of laws with which it tries to regulate its inter dependencies and the mutual devouring of its parasites, whereas the reaching of its limits is marked by an exhaustion of its resources, the hyper-production of artefacts and raving consumption.
When parasitic self-images reach their particular limits, they devour also those who try to realise themselves this way. And when, in order to avoid such fate, the reflected and the projected are divided, parasitic relationships within parasitic relationships come about and an interdependence that leads to a collective collapse.
Collectives are sustained by the emotions of their members. Simple collectives evoke them with demons and taboos, stimulate them with gods of revenge and sacrifices, and refresh them with recycling religions. In more complex collectives, like those of the Occident, emotions are being taken care of by the media responsible for advertisements, fashions, entertainments, the personality designs of their members, their manner of conduct and communication and, last not least, the fomenting of the emotions which support the ideologies and politics of their rulers.
Collectives consider their manipulators being strong and powerful – but they are merely redistributing their own weaknesses.
Power implies capability – and the performance of existence requires a capability that is associated with pride, which in turn connotes nobility manifesting in dignity and generosity – characteristics that have enabled Homo to create splendorous cultures and at the same time to appreciate the capabilities of his fellow-creatures. As a matter of fact, many cultures praised them – as well as wind, water, volcanoes, trees, planets and other aspects of existence – in temples, myths and works of art, as expressions of ConsciousNess.
But the praising of that which is (existence) gets corrupted by Sapiens into a pricing of what he would like to have – i.e. to be – so that nowadays everything has gotten a price, which not only perverts the manifestations of ConsciousNess, but their interrelationships as well, and degrades existence to a marketplace.
Which is not to say that power has become obsolete – in contrary, there is a growing epidemic of so called world-, market-, media- & other powers of the powerless, who seem to thrive on the hope that weakness + weakness = power, from where probably stems also the notion of a “will to power”, which is, besides perverting will as well as power – because will is power – no more but a wishful thinking of the weak, that quite often drives them into wars.
Yet war is not necessarily a manifestation of the weak forces of ConsciousNess, as there have been plenty of cultures who practised it without religious, moral, economical, racist, political or ideological excuses, but worshipped – in view of their gods, arts & epics – war as an expression of ConsciousNess and their powerful and mighty as representatives of its lust and joy of existence.
Worship existence is a major demand of LAL and a topical one, since existence has become a commodity for attempts to realize oneself through possessions.
Such attempts can be found in every R/P system. In the alternating, they are usually put at the service of its collectives, which in turn reward him, who tries to realise himself in such manner, with a reputation that seems to give him an identity. Hence the Orient brought fourth cultures that were able to sustain themselves without immoderate copying & looting.
In the contrary R/P system, attempts to realise oneself through possessions brought about object- & people cults, of whom many were to become models for the Occident, which thus was never able to achieve an identity, but instead developed outstanding copying & ransacking skills that lead to an overabundance of viewpoints and objects – more so, since in Dualism the possession-relationship turns into an auto-division/multiplication of subject & object.
In the Orient these possibilities were obviously latent too, considering its innumerable thinkers who tried to regulate the possession-complex with social & political constructs and to restrain it with philosophies, religions and cosmologies. Whereas in the Occident there have – with the exception of categorical denials – almost no countermeasures been taken. And its thinkers reacted – if at all – only when the fusions and fissions of the possession-complex effected extraordinary disturbances in its collectives and thus threatened the mirror rooms of the thinkers. And even then, they confined their responses to distribution- & redistribution theories, which – as division/multiplication variants – were unable to restrain this process, or to turn it into a self-sufficient relationship. Which in any case would have been quite difficult, as its positions and values change erratically and are moved by emotions that are obviously stronger than the reasons the thinkers boast of, considering their readiness to succumb to the possession complex, to promote it as a progress and law of nature and to encourage its commercial & political executive to export and to impose it upon other cultures. Of course no longer with colonial methods, which are in the age of globalisation obsolete, since the possession complex engenders plentiful medias to infect and to corrupt them with liberal-, economic, democratic- & whatever suitable ideologies.
Might be its promoters hope that if the possession-complex takes over their entire world, there will be no space left for other abstructs – and thus a kind of unity and order might take place. If so, no one seems to contemplate of what such order might consist – certainly not the values & measures that have constituted the possession-complex, as they are deteriorating too.
Moreover, the frantic out pour of updates, substitute schemes, statistics, consumer values and market strategies, their rapidly shrinking half-lives and the proportional increasing helplessness and disorientation of its servants, indicate that the possession-complex is about to devour itself.
Gaia – the Greeks called the organism that bears and nourishes humankind and has thus been venerated by most cultures as Mother and attributed with human characteristics.
However, being larger in scope and correspondingly complex, Gaia cannot be as easily defined as humankind, although folks who live in symbiosis with Nature seem to be able to read and understand many of her workings.
Some claim that Gaia has a mind too, and that it is comparable to the mind of Homo; if so, it must be much huger and not limited by a brain. Huxley called it “mind-at-large” and thought the human brain being “a reduction valve, that filters out those impressions which are not useful for the job of survival” and simultaneously reduces his awareness.
Einstein said: „What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses“
Whatever the theories may be, the relationship between mother nature and her children is deteriorating since Homo separated mind and body and thus himself from Nature (whose mind & body is one) and notably more so since his offspring Sapiens began to belittled her as a dumb mechanism, whom he is entitled (by some law of nature) to rule, violate, alter, rape & plunder – which obviously doesn’t do Gaia much good; even his scientists admit that she appears to have fever, respiratory problems, blood (water) infections, skin cancer – just to mention a few symptoms that can be diagnosed in the organism of mammals (like Homo) as well, and that they, the scientists, know little about her complexity and dynamics and thus practically nothing about the course of her illness and respective reactions.
(If she acts like a human organism, she will try to get rid of this parasite.)
In the 18th century, Carl von Lynne, a Swedish classifying specialist, came up with a new category of Homo, which he labelled Sapiens – “wise” – probably to distinct it from the former and to give it a superior touch. If so, erroneously, as being wise was applied to the one who has common sense and relates himself according to his Point of View, or – as the priest of Ptah put it – the cognition of his mind. Whereas Sapiens, being a product of Dualism, has neither common sense nor an individual (indivisible) Point of View, and thus tries to relate himself with the help of a feedback-mechanism called intellect.
In Dualism intellect acts as a double-feedback mechanism which, when applied to the there from emanating viewpoints, turns into a division/ multiplication process (renown as rationalism) that brings about a dual-linear procession (chain-reaction) of viewpoints*. Attempts to inhibit this process(ion) through a 3rd position, or virtual viewpoint, can be found in the alternating and contrary R/P system as well, but both contain the possibility of an identification with this viewpoint and thus of an integration of the others. Whereas in the Geometry of Dualism, this position, or viewpoint, appears separate as well and thus initiates, in conjunction with the intellect, an auto-fragmentation process.
* viewpoints can occur where there is no “Point of View”
Greek philosophers and geometricians, who already encountered this process, expected it to be limited by a Smallest and a Largest, and thus bring about a union of micro- and macrocosm. These expectations got thwarted by Sapiens, when he placed the intellect into his cerebellum and thus made himself to the centre of the fragmentation process, whose dual linear dynamic forces him to carry it on into opposite directions, which led him so far to the two smallest that mark the boundaries of his universe – but not to the end of the fragmentation process, as each of these smallest is a time/space event of it. Moreover, he furthers this process, by furnishing each of the events (which are actually the same) with attributes and measurements, in order to fix them (and the process) and to place them at its (hopefully: smallest) beginnings.
The Selfrealisation-process of ConsciousNess manifests in Sapiens as an urge to figure who, why, where he is. Consequently he constructs cosmologies, sciences, technologies, philosophies, social theories, historical myths – and whatever else he hopes to satisfy the urge with. Them toppling each other (or him them) he calls progress & evolution, and the respectively growing number of viewpoints and opinions a growth of ConsciousNess, but ConsciousNess is only in so far quantitative that it contains All – and herein such measurements do disappear.
Backdating his birth 300000 years, Sapiens tries to justify his progress- & evolution- myths. And as it is common to enforce a myth through discrediting another, he refutes the histories of Homo – who (for example) imagined himself having eaten apples in the garden of Eden and strolling with beautiful women through splendorous palaces – by depicting him as a dark primitive creature which spend its life in caves, gnawing bones and clubbing its neighbours.
Sapiens claims his stories (histories) to be objective, despite that they are, according to his separate viewpoint, subjective – at least until the dual linear parallels meet in the infinite; but in such case it is no longer a time/space history, but a Here/Now event.
If evolution and survival were basic principles of existence, Sapiens would and could not make so many efforts to ruin it. However, as existence is to realise ConsciousNess, he might also be subject to the annihilation of the aberrations of its Selfrealization-process.
The more confused and Self-estranged Sapiens gets, the more he becomes hostile to existence, and seeks refuge in technologies & sciences.
Science is to relate the manifestations of ConsciousNess, i.e. existence, in a unifying manner. When science isolates a manifestation and treats it as an autonomous phenomenon, quest becomes its drive, and as the time/space between the searcher and the object of search is determined by the prior, latter stays, despite being present, mostly hidden, which brings about more searches and re-searches.
Existence- or life-concepts, have particular patterns regarding their limits, and every culture has its shamans, magicians, priests, alchemist, philosophers or scientists to manipulate these patterns – i.e. to modify undesired courses. Some cultures are apparently aware that all patterns are interactive, as they have laws to regulate the manipulations and interventions and punish errors and violations – sometimes even with death. The most common (sense) law is that the manipulator coordinates first his micro – & macro cosmos, in order to get an overall view and to avoid that already his preparations turn into a division/multiplication process with unforeseeable courses and results. However, even where they correspond with the intent, the manipulator becomes part of the altered pattern and – if he has not foreseen this due to a lack of cognition and understanding – a victim of his intervention.
Occidental science tries to bind that which it divides and thus thrives best in Dualism. Its protagonists crowning themselves with dynamite (Nobel) laurels, reminds that they also develop A-B-C devices capable to eliminate mankind – a threat that receives innumerable excuses and explanations, except that it might be a short circuit, or the ultimate ratio, of a (literally) Self-destructive abstruct.
LAL calls it “ill ordered house”, but penitentiary (from penance: self-punishment) might be proper, considering the legions of technologists who, under the guidance of science, invent myriads of apparatuses and instruments to optimise its walls, which are guarded by philosophers and ideologists who justify, glorify and universalise its fatality, not to mention the anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists & other repair-logists, who try to make it escape proof – and all of them with such blind faith and zeal, that no one seems to notice, that this monstrosity is about to reach its critical mass.
21 Finale Occidentale
Occidental civilization cultivates the myth that it is indefinitely progressing, but – in face of the increasing paranoia, avarice, corruption & disorientation of its subjects – it is definitely declining.
All civilisations do eventually disappear, be it through inner corruption, outer pressure or suicide. Corruption is foremost powered by ambition, envy & greed and manifests in the Occident and its dependencies as turbulent changes of personal & collective parameters, intoxication & consumption frenzies, sexual abbreviations, media saturations, political opportunisms, escape cults and so on – as a matter of fact, most aspects of present Occidental civilisations can be seen as manifestations of weakness, disorientation and decay. And it seems to have suicidal tendencies as well, considering the zeal with which its citizens attack, rape, plunder & poison the organism that bears and feeds them.
Occidental civilisation developed in a linear time/space which reaches inevitable (at least since the beginning of Dualism) its own end. And then there is going to be an end of all beginnings and of all the abstructs that originate from this R/P relationship – since it is the relationship which determines a formation
There is little known about the causes of the disappearances of other civilisations, probably due to the collective amnesia that usually comes in the wake of a catastrophe. However, the reasons of the decline of the Occident are largely known, dynamics and details are extensively researched and recorded – yet, be it due to lack of common sense, simple stupidity or genetic fuck-up, Sapiens carries with business as usual.
Nevertheless it would be unjust to blame Sapiens, after all he is but an epitome of Dualism and thus subject to a polarisation dynamic that increases (according to the dual-linear relativity of Dualism) at an exponential rate – until it reaches its R/P equation (1-1).
Every R/P system, epoch, culture & generation brings fourth warriors to cleanse and fortify itself. They appear in drabs of saints, uniforms of generals or cloaks of magicians, their weapons are swords, letters, mantras, invocations, mathematical formulas, as well as electric guitars and Molotov cocktails.
The warrior is to counteract the proliferation (or globalisation) of weaknesses – i.e. to stabilise the equation of strong & weak forces.
The complexities & corruptions of Dualism call for the use of guerrilla tactics and that the warrior operates alone and from a position which he keeps secret and which serves as his retreat to study the weaknesses and traps of his opponents. He may use their deception tactics and tricks to confuse them, but his attack ought to be precise and swift like a snake. He has to pay attention not to rush past his target, or to idle in it, but to retreat in the same manner and without leaving unnecessary (e.g.: personal) traces. Moreover, he ought not to return to the target of his attack to reassure his success, because an act that is questioned is incomplete, i.e. imperfect.
The warrior is not to attack Dualism, but its ill breeding. He is to be guided by Will & Love – and if he chooses by the Egyptian war god, but not by his desire for revenge, as it is to stir the fires of the weak and of their weaknesses, which the warrior lightens so that they may purify themselves (and their gods!)
The warrior is to eliminate that which impedes and to encourage/strengthen that which furthers the Selfrealisation.
The polarisation dynamic of ConsciousNess arises from dualities and is thus innate to every R/P system. In the contrary R/P mode it is more pronounced and when latter applied to Dualism an auto-division/multiplication ensues which is in LAL under the aegis of the Egyptian war-god Ra-Hoor-Khu and manifests in the fragmentation of the religious, social, moral, political, economical & most other frameworks that have been constituting the Occident.
As hawk headed war-lord Ra-Hoor-Khu incites the “healthy instincts” (Nietzsche) of the Beast, to get rid of the rubbish Homo has been accumulating during two millennia of Dualism, in particular its protagonist Sapiens, who spreads cancer-like through the cultures of the other R/P systems and corrupts them with the fears, the avarices and the vile emotions that emanate from separation & differentiation and have, so to speak, become his trademarks.
Personifying the polarisation dynamic, Ra-Hoor-Khu can also be regarded as its persona juridical who searches and destroys that which impedes the Selfrealisation. The persona juridical manifests in every R/P system and is generally considered a persona problematical as it evokes that which it is to eliminate.
24 Do what you will
is arguable the most original and common manner of Selfrealisation.
It is also called the going forth way, as Will is spontaneous and its manifestations are thus unfettered by secondary emotions, past deeds, expectations, morals and reasons.
In 725 BC, the Egyptian Ankh-af-na-khonsu, rejoiced his success with the going forth way (see transcript LAL III-37,38) in a Stele that led to the dictation of LAL in Cairo (1904)
In the Occident “Do what you will” was mostly confined to philosophical discussions and apparently neither understood nor applied as a way of Selfrealisation, since in Dualism Will got divided into a divine and a human property, latter analogous to emotions like wishes and desires which are driving forces in its division/multiplication process.
LAL I & II unveils the interrelationship of Micro- & Macrocosm – Hadit & Nuit – Self & All – and promotes Do your Will as it overrides the restrictions of Dualism and thus enables Selfrealisation according to ones True Self.
Find yourself to be the centre of your own Universe.
Explore the Nature and Powers of your own Being.
This includes everything which is, or can be for you: and you must accept everything exactly as it is in itself, as one of the factors which go to make up your True Self. This True Self thus ultimately includes all things so ever: its discovery is Initiation (the travelling inwards) and as its Nature is to move continually, it must be understood not as static, but as dynamic, not as a Noun but as a Verb.
