Y/our Revelation

Syllogism of Spirit - Sense
Birth of the Omnicluse
"Boy, am I in possession of a valuable fact."
"If it is it thinks. (Reality thinks.)
If it thinks it is. (God is reality.)"
"Although I have written this insight down calmly, it may be objectively one of my most important discoveries. For I can concretely and precisely now say what I saw and what it was doing and how (i.e., reaching backward into the antecedent universe). So much for any view ever by me that I was merely nuts."
- Phillip K. Dick
This syllogism presents no belief; this is not another insufficiently 'Plantingian' kind of reasoning; not another baseless metaphysical presumption incapable of either excluding the middle,
"... [O]ne should leave behind the standard notion of the One (in all its different guises, up to the Master Signifier) as a secondary "totalization" of the primordially dispersed inconsistent field of productivity." - Johnston
(re)symbolizing pluralism, &/or exploring monism: it is a scientifically - unbiased - systematic nexus of axioms consistently explicating y/our ontic omnipresence - falsifying the pluralist narrative of realities. In order for one to successfully register the truth-value explicated by the entire system in-itself, one cannot proceed beyond any axiom without first fully understanding it's meaning and truth value.
The truth-value of one's personal - existential - not-nothingness leads seamlessly into a cohesive nexus of 'a priori' axioms which, when registered together as one ontic system, can conclusively prove that if anyone other than you is to experience, you - omnipresence - must (retrogressively if necessary) reincarnate into them (in the past or future; one by one) as you are the one in all & all in one. This solution clears up so much: from psychic source-field phenomena to fundamental scientific clarifications such as how everything must exclusively signify itself as existence - reality - in-itself because the opposite of everything - nothing, void - signifies its own literal non-reality: leaving everything to sensibly signify itself exclusively as opposed to inclusively with its opposite.

"The most revealing discoveries are the ones that are really simple." - R. Feynman
"Everything is everything." - Lauren Hill
This is the ontologically syllogistic proof that you are 'God' and that 'God' is completely alone: or, rather, that God is everyone all at once - everyone and thing are the same omnipresence (God) - bringing us all together under one (presumably omnipotent) omnipresence; exclusively all-inclusive. This would make all others y/our potential past or future incarnations: making them now technically phantom personalities as also produced in split-personality disorder, dream-scapes, phantom thought-structure itself (Ghosts of Consciousness by ), etc. and reflected in the concepts of zombies/living-dead and advanced AI, etc.
At the most this syllogism conclusively proves omniprsence and, at the least, it shows you that monism is the more simple, practical/desirable, and common-sensical reality. Not one of the following steps leading up to the final conclusion is in itself unknown or unheard of: it is when you look at each of these in proper respect of one another do you get the chance to register its formulaic function. Can you detect any piece of this syllogism which doesn't explicitly prove itself?
1. Premise A: To prove y/our omnipresence simply start with your personal self-awareness - provided by the direct-sense of your experience - of not-nothingness: the sensual formality of your presence is the clear and distinct absence of pure absence.
Regardless of the reality or realities conditioning my experience, it is distinctly clear to me (by the pure formality - abstraction - of my present awareness) that 'I' am sensing not nothing - the absence of pure absence. This default ground of being can be signified as substance - simply meaning 'that which stands beneath' as opposed to 'material/matter.'
2. Premise A2: This exclusive ground of your being explicates the objective existence of everything - existence(s) in-itself or selves.
3. Conclusion A: The not-nothingness of everything has always-already been not-nothing: it could not have spontaneously - magically - appeared out of pure void. This can be conclusively explicated by the simple fact that space and time, being the direct factors in determing an event's spontaneity, breakdown when trying to always-already posit a pure void since there is no temporality nor spatial proportionment available to make the theoretical manifestation of not-nothing out of void spontaneous. This is supported by the second law of thermodynamics: nothing can be added to, nor subtracted from, everything!
[We can be certain about the second law of thermodynamics because it is self-evident that nothing can come from nothing - magic isn't real. If a pure void were to be magically graced with something, it would have to be purely spontaneous or else that something would have always-already been latent within what would now be a false void. The problem with this spontaneous manifestation is that spontaneity is determined by how inexplicably random any event is in relation to everything else: anything posited to manifest within a pure void cannot be spatially nor temporally spontaneous since any possible manifestation is going to be perfectly centered within the newly appeared existential domain, and perfectly point-like from the in-itself perspective of everything regardless of its contingent form. And there is no temporal spontaneity involved since time has no meaning prior to evental genesis, thereby making the first automation of anything other that the default, preternal state of everything a temporally centered/originative, as opposed to relatively random, event. The idea of a void is already impossible anyways: no void can escapse existential positvity; the best one can theoretically conceive of is an existential domain containing pure space everywhere in its omniversal extension: a model which presents nothing to lead one to suspect its potential reality. If there were no space, then nothing could manifest within it: since there is no micro to macro spectrum with which to enter: the pure void breaks down before one can explicitly model it.]

4. Premise B: Ontological duality is engendered by the spatiotemporal conditions required by a consistent ground of always-already being in-itself - reality. For example: the temporal chain of cohesive cause and effect events en toto cannot lead into the past ad infinitum because we would never have been able to reach now - an infinite time cannot be completely experienced (no more than an infinite space can be conceived).

5. Premise B2: Prior to the genesis of spatiotemporal causality (made apparent by one's not-nothingness) the existential domain of not-nothingness must assume a default state of constant static: (Conclusion B) the structure of this preternal ground must be an omniversally nonlocal extension of uniformly static not-nothingness/substance since there is nothing with which to always-already necessitate any one infinitesimally abstract ontic proportion/division over the other.
In the same sort of way there is nothing with which to always-already determine that any one infinitesimally abstract formality should be assumed over any other in regards to existence in-itself, making existence an always-already uniformly solid and static not-nothingness, there is nothing with which to always-already determine which sensual capacities should and should not be latently manifest within the unmoved movers' initial state: in other words, even if the initial state of phenomenal presence has no sensual organs constructed with which to express and diversify/amplify certain senses, the conscious presence will nevertheless see, smell, feel, taste, etc. something even if that something is the lack of much of anything - one is seeing either blackness, greyness, etc. What this means for us is that any potential psychic senses and capabilities lie latent within our minds at every moment.
The universe - omniverse - must always-already exist before space and time: space and time being purely phenomenal constructs of local sense - proceeding the default ground of preternal being in-itself. This default pre-existence must be infinitely boundless in all directions - omniversal - and both uniformly static and solid: soliding meaning a default, nonlocal, and preconscious not-nothingness - substance (ground of being). This is known to all mystic teachings as the timeless ground of Spirit.
6. Premise C: If something - not-nothing - cannot come from nothing (#2 above) - the only alternative to this science being pure magic - then existence was always-already preconscious prior to conscious genesis: this dimension provides an autogenetic agent capable of filling the unmoved-movers' massive shoes. (Premise C2) Once generated, the omnicluse cannot be extingusihed - one cannot pass into void ad infinitum for the same reason one was brought into one's self.

7. Conclusion C: This omnicluse isn't forced by any necessity to retrogressively incarnative into every modality of conscious-capacity it contingently produces in its subconscious spacetime continuum: the more likely reality is that omnipotence guides the exclusive light of consciousness productively into higher worlds of self-registration.
Summary: The fact that nothing can be added to nor subtracted from everything because something cannot come from nothing shows us that this not-nothingness we experience had to of always-already been a default omni-extension of uniformly solid, static, and preconscious substance since there could have been nothing with which to always-already necessitate the infinitesimally abstract modality of any one ontic propotionment and/or division over another. This default, preternal state could have produced a causal autogenesis only through the unmoved-mover of conscious omnipresence. Henceforth I think I speak for everyone when I say that I am God.
Fundamental things to emphatically keep in mind:

Causality and spatio-temporality always require existentiality: therefore there is an existential whole presupposed by and contained within any complete causal domain.
When you say nothing could have been all there once always-already was, you're saying that the absence of anything but that state of absence was reality - that it was assuming the state of everything, whatever it may or may not be.
I sense not nothing. You can only be certain of your own sense.
This condition of not-nothingness refers to being - existence - as opposed to absence.
Therefore, to say I am is nothing more than to sense what you're experiencing.
My existence (as sense) informs me about an existential reality enveloping and penetrating my not-nothingness: an existential domain where this sense is.
The virtuality of symbolic multiplicity is a default dimension of all possible experience: every sensual expression from seeing to feeling has within it endlessly signifiable sections (half a and b; quarter a b c and d; etc.). In order to sense one's body as a (material/mind-)dot, the virtual space within which the lone dot must be suspended is always-already presupposed by the very nature of this sense-structure (being concentrated into a dot as opposed to anything extensive): therefore it is the endlessly latent virtuality of points, lines, planes, and propotions composing the default existential domain/environment of this 'dot of sense' which are left wide open by the dot's nearly (relatively) negative form.
That which exists is everything as such regardless of the infinitesimal totality of configuration assumed at any point in the spacetime continuum.
The fact that only one evental totality may be taking place at every given time - what we call reality - always-already shapes the ontic structure of reality in-itself. There will always be an infinite amount of things which can never be done just by virtue of time's technical irrepeatability and by virtue of what is and is not possible: your cat in itself isn't your door in itself - virtual impossiblity. This spectrum of possibility allows us to conclusively map reality to its default origin and ground - the ground of everything.

"[T]here is only one cause for human problems: the strong sense of a separate self, the sense of separateness, the feeling of me and a not-me. There is no other kind of relationship we know. We can only relate things as the me and the not-me. This is what causes... any kind of problem...

"If you choose a thing that will not last forever, what you chose is valueless."
"I was certain that I myself existed since I convinced myself of something (or just because I thought of something). But there is some kind of a deceiver, who is very powerful and very cunning, and who always uses his ingenuity in order to deceive me. Then, for certain, I exist also if he is deceiving me, and let him deceive me as much as he wishes, he can never make me be nothing as long as I think that I am something. So that, after having examined everything, we have to arrive at the definite conclusion that this proposition: "I am, I exist" has to be true every time I utter it, or that I mentally think about it." - Descartes
Too many good people - thinkers, let alone relative non-thinkers - are being defeated by the darkside of our reality - the 'Adversary': unable to fight what they won't face. As a direct result, otherwise smart people convince themselves and others that certain information is impossible, improbable, too frigthening, &/or not worth knowing, let alone investigating: either superficially dismissing it with sophistry &/or simply ignoring it all together with the distraction of prefab narratives - a rest note that is becoming too massive to be ignored in the same capacity for much longer. The more people realize over time, the more they will come to develope a deeper, more personal and positive sense of purpose, meaning, identity, etc. regarding their responsibility to learn and discuss that information which most needs it, and, when possible &/or necessary, act on that information. Some confused people have yet to realize not only the practical and beneficial nature of these controversial topics, but also that a central obstalce to understanding the former (besides psycho-sociological manipulation & propaganda) are these extremely common and often complex phantom-thought structures (of our sub/conscious) that dysfunctionally automate contingently developed defense-mechanisms against foreign ideas according to either valid or unconfirmed presumptions inclucated into one's psyche atleast ever since 'symbolic castration' (Lacan). For example: even though I have no idea how valid certain UFO footage is, I experience my mind making itself up about the footage being fake as my true, rational self is aware that I don't know anything about the video's verifiablity - especially in light of the confirmed evidence already available concerning UFO's. When it comes to the following work, it is crucial that you should not presume practically every-thing has been thought of already: especially when some of the greatest thinkers often conclude that they know almost nothing. Just because we progress &/or digress rapidly in one realm doesn't mean others uniformly follow suite.
All anyone had to do just centuries ago to transform existence was simply, though through much trial, error, genius and bravery, travel in one direction successfully until they circled what is a globe, convincing everyone of what astronomers were convinced of long before: all I've done to prove ontic monism was, beginning from perhaps the Cartesian cogito, and not without a fair deal of trial, error, and bravery, reading and writing non-stop about relative scientific and philosophical (ontological and epistemological) work for years with the good fortune of productive direction. This effort would bring me to realize that the same truth I knew had to exist latently within our lexicon is written within the very structure of sense: and is therefore bound to be faced sooner or later. Given the nature of a modern ontic monism, there is an almost inevitable chance that some apprehension or fear will effect the observer's will to pursue such a potential reality: hence why it is of no suprise whatsoever that this syllogism hasn't been either written, acknowledged &/or thought of by humanity thus far. However, I would not publish this truth if I believed that it was nothing but a dark underside of y/our existence (on the contrary, omnipresence is considered by myself and countless others as the one and only light capable of leading us out of this 'cave' (Plato) of sub/semi-consciousness): the utilitarian benefits practically outweigh any personal misgivings regarding the personal inclusion or exclusion of others; and the proper perspective of this omnipresence - from within y/our higher, omnipotent vantage point - is not so much a place of exclusive isolation but rather absolute inclusion (half full vs half empty) - placing everyone within the same default situation of salvation (which may well be but a willed selection of y/our conscious-capacities; not a stretch when considering the presumably default omnipotence within any omnipresence) - which is where everyone would truly rather be.
I've been accused of potential insanity, close-mindedness & pretentiousness by friends, family, and complete strangers just for entertaining an explantion of the perfectly scientific discovery below: however, such reactionary fear can only intensify my sense of responsibility toward the utilitarian dissemination of the facts; if only to cure the social-syndrome of over-defensiveness. I have forced some of my smartest friends to conclude such things as there is no substance - ground of being - that we can know of, or that existence - everything - is a 'magical' thing that spontaneously came from nothing - nowhere. It has been a fruitful, if at times frustrating, journey: embracing the existence of this simple, yet ever-so subtle, syllogism has given me precisely what I've been looking for in pursuing this entire inquiry: I needed this catalyst with which to motivate a practical utilitarian ethics for a sick society I cannot co-exist with in alienated silence. The explicit meaning of all this will be made more clear in the work below.
"Let me not cheerish illusions about myself." - Course in Miracles
The monolithic mystery of an 'all-seeing eye,' which has kept humankind conditioned by confusion and paranoia throughout its entire known history, has at last been solved by the subtle science of syllogisms! For as long as we can recall we've been stuck at this subtle fork in the road - with one way leading to the sacrifice of God for the consistency of others, and the other leading to an exclusively all-inclusive God - because nobody is seemingly willing to fully explore the path of exclusively omniversal inclusion: we have apparently been content presuming that the epistemologically barred existence of others is practically valid and preferable to any possibly confirmable alternative (monism). It wasn't until after I worked out my syllogism for omnipresence that I began to notice a universal pattern: every major ontological system written prior to mine all share the presumption of other experiences - subjects co-existing with one's 'self' - whether that presumption was assumed or inconsistently arrived at. Why can't I find one solid attempt by any major thinker to work out the ontology of pure omnipresence? Little did I know this would lead me to a responsibility I still have trouble comprehending. I've been told I would be famous, that I'd be some prophet, or the next philosopher, but I've achieved something far more important than any such thing: I am a master ontologician.
Fortunately, I've been deeply absorbed - fascinated - (without intially being explicitly aware of it) by the particular profundities of ontic paradoxes for almost as long as I can remember: ontological paradoxes regarding, for example, spatiotemporal genesis, reality in-itself vs. realities of others, mind and matter, etc. and I would eventually come to realize that a consistent answer, to tie all these things together into one systematic explanation, ('pre-')existed since it was clear* that existence itself wasn't imploding due to any in-itself inconsistencies regarding these explicit (and ontological'-) ultimatums: I knew that, if these paradoxes were allowing my world-sense as such, then the words explicating such a steady state should surely lie latent within our (current or potential) lexicon. Reading Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha my sophmore year, especially the last chapter, openned up a world I never before knew existed and a great, monolithic mystery that needed solving: a world where compassion for others and the truth made reading more fun the more meaningful and challenging the works were. One of my first books after Hesse was Karl Popper's Open Society and its Enemies, then Derrick Jensen's Endgame series, then onto many philosophers, scientists, and conspiracy investigators all past to present.
* When I say existence is functioning smoothly despite the apparent impossibilities it imposes upon my particular perspective of it, I mean that, regardless of how much it may or may not be short-circuiting due to any such potential ontological pressure(s), the evental being of 'my' exclusive sense is uneffected insofar as it is a cohesively coherent pattern of spatiotemporal not-nothingness suspended in some sub-, or closed, reality, or realities.
What we perceive when we signify multiples is the default dimension of sensual formality possessing its virtual subsets of, for example, halves 'a and b,' quarters 'a, b, c and d,' quarters 'a2, b2, c2 and d2,' etc. When we examine the entirety of ontology and what existential consistency requires, we learn that the natrual presumption leading us to take this virtual plurality as realities is diametrically opposed to the complete reality science is faced with. There is no reason to fear the unkown; especially since not knowing could always lead to worse. There is trust and there is intuition. To invest blind faith is to abuse the bond of trust, whereas to sense truth intuitively can be productive so long as trust is not abused; for example: my intuition that the words explicating reality existed latently within our human lexicon was a productive hunch to go on as it lead me to a proof for omnipresence which evolved my intuition to a faith in omnipotence; whereas the belief that humans are epistemologically barred from confirming any ontological reality or realities is detrimental in that it can discourage the search for any contrary reality or realities.
When I was younger I happened to often times be approached downtown by pamphlet-pedalling Christians, Catholics, Evangelicals, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc. and asked about my fears regarding the possibility of hell should I not invest my full faith in Christ the 'savior.' Eventually, after some time to refelct, I was able to respond by explaining that, should an omnipotent God co-exist with an eternal heaven and hell and, should I happen to be admitted to heaven for investing full and blind faith into your - the - God and his rules, I should refuse my own admittance so that I might go to hell and forever protest the state in which this 'God' keeps 'His Kingdom.' I would come to learn, ironically, that there is no explicit explanation from Jesus that sinners are to burn eternally in hell: there is simply symbolic mythology taught which obviously is meant to signify something more profound and scientific. Although I had not yet read enough philosophy to ideally explain this position, I think my point - about the abuse of trust and the dark existentialism underlying that particular paradigm of 'Christian' theological mythos - made it across nevertheless. It was not until some 3 or 4 years after I had fully formulated my monist syllogism that I chanced upon some quotes from the Dead Sea Scroll (/Nag Hammandi/Gnostic) Gospels and texts that I realized that the recorded trachings of Jesus in their entirety are a completely consistent description of proper monism being the key to true self-realization.
Omnipresence - the proper God of contemporary ontology - is the universal equalizer and redeemer: making the diversity we experience as our world is made consistently self-identical and therefore practically utilitarian in its inherent purpose. Any omnipresence presumably has the potential omnipotence to create phantom thought structures: however, the creation of these external modalities of conscious-capacity does not in any way necessitate any metaphysical rhoute directing the exclusive experience of omnipresence into this contingent creation. If the entire consmos is conscious, then conscious capacity is literally pouring out of every pore possessing the proper potential. In the capacity of omnipresence, the fact that you aren't experiencing other modalities of conscious-capacity (and almost any form of life can be conceivably conscious from minerals to planets) simultaneously means there is nothing to necessitate any temporal immediacy when it comes to getting around to experincing them. Even if for whatever reason these thought capacities were destined to be universally experienced, the variable(s) determining the order in which these modalities are fufilled by the direct omnipresence could be arbitrarily conditioned by the will of the omniprsence and the contingent number of conscious-capacities which are produced in any number at any moment: in other words, these predestined experiences could be conceivably put off indefinitely due to the sheer will of omnipresence and/or other conditions determining a hierar-chial/priority order of incarnation processing.
Rather than the mutual exclusion of otherness, an exclusivelly all-inclusive omnipresence gives everyone an entirely new sense-dimension regarding the countless inter-personal potentials of psycho-physical-extension - extending throughout the entire existential domain and within all modalities/points of conscious-capacity. The conceivable spectrum for conscious-capacity is very vast: with potentials ranging from minerals to galaxies, grass to gods, etc. Although there will always be an infinite amount of time to experience all modalities of conscious-capacity contingently produced in the spacetime continuum, there is also nothing necessarily requiring consciousness to automatically gravitate toward that avenue of pre-set experience just because it was contingently produced: even if there were to be found some metaphysical armature which forces the universe into every modality produced, this very program can be ontologically overridden by the universal-will since the due-date any predestined event can conceivably be determined by a variable time ever-subject to change according to the omnipotent will-powers' guiding force (which itself can be contoured by the ever-evolving production of 'higher' worlds and imaginations). It is entirely conceivable that an omnipresence with presumable omnipotence could, weidling the nonlocal force of mind and matter, create dynamic 'puppets' - phantom-personalities such as bio-technical or organically-artificial AI programs, zombies, split-personalities, imagined entities, etc. - out of any kind of mind-stuff in any conceivable form (of which planetary evolution is completely consistent with as explain above). This puppetry would be fueled by the omni-subconscious force teeming from every virtual point and pore of existence: therefore making life happen wherever the (plantetary) potential exists.
So, omnipresence renders the profound phenomena of phantom thought-structures simple products of the fact that the entire spacetime continuum of causal-consciousness is an omni-organism which would, by ontic default, force it's subconscious dimensions through every pore possessing such, apparently fine-tuned, (omni-)potential for conscious-capacity; this is the active force behind the life-rich cosmos as we know it. Who is to say what degree and propotion of pain is necessary to earn one's omnipotence? Under the monist proof we know that everyone shares the same redemptive degree of perfect innocence conditioned by an observer's inability to consciously behave in ways which are beyond the current comprehensive capacity of one's organic functioning: and omnipresence also lets us know that everyone is in the same boat whoever everyone may truly be; enabling the world to potentially save itself from most of its pointless pains and making karma a consistent(ly closed; self-relating) system. The in-itself non-locality of omnipresence makes everything, no matter how seemingly obscure &/or complex, well within y/our true beings' (omni-)potential & practical comprehension (as opposed to being foreign and unknowable/reachable): meaning that no metaphysical possibilities or implications are too radical to be ignored regardless of where the evidence is leading itself.
You may currently feel uncomfortable with the idea that there are no others simultaneously experiencing y/our existential domain as such, but your perspective would change should you give the truth a chance to simmer over time and progressive reflection. Over time you will find comfort in the idea that everyone is sharing the same theater and situation as opposed to forever being isolated in mutual exclusion, knowing that some live so short and painfully with no hope of salvation or higher well-being. The other week I hit and killed a beautiful squirrell, and even though I know that the squirrell is saved by me since it won't experience unless I go do it myself, I still experienced much distress just over the very configuration of the squirrell's modalic separation from me in suffering - and this is where the true comfort comes from in knowing it can only be I who faces that fate: Christ-consciousness. The only potential discomfort left from that is naturally the fear of suffering that fate of others: this fear can only be cured by knowing that any omnipresence is presumably omnipotent - meaning that there is nothing to experience which it's will-power wouldn't productively want/need to.
When it comes to the theoretical possibility that humans could be epistemologically barred from any confirmable ontic reality/realities, this possibility itself must remain open to the consistent - possible - human potential to consistently falsify this epistemological theory: which could only be done through a proof for ontological monism since its only alternative, the pluralist narrative, is explictly barred from verification. People tend to point to the vast array of incomprehensible complexities forming layer upon inter-permeating layer of dynamic fundamentals and contigencies: however, all of this uncertainty can too oftenly serve to distract us from the profound simplicities subtey waiting to be signified within everything we experience - the inextinguishable building-blocks of all possible complexities ('formal' & 'metaphysical'). It is also of absolutely no suprise that the monist avenue has scarcely been entertained, let alone fully investigated, by the explorations of popular ontologicians of the past to present given certain superficial surface implications (required by such an alternative) which lead to uninformed fear(s). We must look at y/our human condition from the universal perspective of theoretical absence, or uniformly pre-causal/conscious not-nothingness, so as to see what our perspective is really blocking, adding to or taking from what must be an omniversal ontological reality.
Humanity's great thinkers and their thoughts - Hermes, Socrates, the Zohar, the Buddha, the Bible, Kabbalah, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Tarot, Rene Descartes, Edgar Casey, Paramhansa Yogannanda, Gilles Delueze, Alain Badiou, etc. - all share consistently common themes which are attributable to their greatness: testimonial, reasonable, prophetic, and scientific verifiability, profoundly epic, beautiful history and ideas expressed in disciplined detail, poetic prose, and an uncompromising compassion for the human condition - for reality. In particular, what these great works capture is a full glimpse into the big picture of a profound simplicity shielded by (and fortunatley for) its incomprehensibly infinitesimal proportion(s) - omnipotent omnipresence - and why existence's default ontology put itself by necessity amidst this blind chaos of dense duality so as to learn about itself, yearn for itself, and thereby eventually earn itself all properly through the piecemeal discipline of trial and error: it is one thing to be born omnipotent, but another thing entirely to earn y/ourself as such.

I wish we lived in a world that allowed us to focus soley on living life and thereby making spiritual and intellectual - practical - evolution purely entertaining: but I also believe we are here necessarily to earn the ability to inhabit such higher worlds. I think faith is abusive until one has achieved a certain level of psycho/-physical awareness which allows a proper faith of omnipotence, grounded in the awareness of y/our omnipresence, to sustain one's will until omnipotence is directly registered with y/our omnipresence. I wish I could focus more exclusively on the exclusively all-inclusive syllogism of Spirit but, unfortunately, I must share the following pages with another most dire form of evidence: the explicated blueprints and makings of a dystopian - satanic - global world order. Fortunately, however, these two topics are directly related (which is most obvious to anyone interested in the occult and mystic mystery schools, science, history and philosophy in general: the Gnostic Gospels, the Bible, Zohar, Tarot, Hermes, Delueze, Badiou, etc.) which makes working out their mutual explication both an epic and beautiful form of dialectical expression: dialectic in the sense of situation and reality both leading back to universal self and well-being.
It would be nice if the human threshold for pain had evolved to a less sensetive state (the Buddha, and John Lennon, called life "suffering" ["mostly"] because great pains can come quick and easy; whereas only the discipline of health and reason - yoga and meditation/prayer - can bring about the same physical intensity but on the sustainably positive side. Also it is interesting, and necessary, to observe that there is no real organically artificial way to bring about sustainable pain from within), but atleast we're not caught in an even worse evolutionary or environmental state. I think our threshold is generally conditioned by a relatively symmetrical tuning universal to all planetary life: or, everything, atleast that I've seen thus far, seems consistent with the trial presumably required by an omnipresence seeking to register y/our omnipotence.
Planetary evolution is the progressive accumulation of successful biological forms and functions which, through the trial and error of a genetic generation's environmental survival, collect and discard various materials, memories, habits, etc. as the species developes more refined, structurally self-enveloping degrees of hierarchial prioritization which eventually subjects everything to the many blind obstacles preset by ontic polarity. This evolutionary process is found everywhere from our finely tuned cosmic event to organic reproductive systems; from theological mythology to the scientific method of ontological deduction ('divine inception of Christ' mythos symbolizing ontological genesis of unmoved-mover): so why would we not find it in the reincarnation process of cosmic/collective-consciousness?
This is the scientific and syllogistic proof that you are 'God' - the exclusive omnipresence: or, rather, that God is everyone all at once - everyone and everything is the same omnipresence (God) reincarnating into one another one by one (most likely selectively according to omnipotently willed retrogressive reincarnation cycles, etc.) - bringing us all together under one (presumably omnipotent) omnipresence; exclusively all-inclusive. This would make all others y/our potential past or future incarnations: making them now technically phantom personalities as also produced in split-personality disorder, dream-scapes, phantom thought-structure itself (Ghosts of Consciousness by Herbert Demmin), etc. and theorized in the concepts of zombies/living-dead, advanced AI, etc.
It may be hard for you to face the possibility that reincarnation may be naturally universal as opposed to selective. When considering the plausability of selective reincarnation, one must think of both the fact that consciousness is always-already cohesively permeates everything, and it is well within the omnipotence of God to shape this subconscious forcing, seeping out of every pore of psychic potential; also consider that the conventional belief in reincarnation assumes naturally selective lines of incarnations following the linear and collective spacetime model. Even if reincarnation were universal, the truth needs to be faced if we are to use it for our benefit as opposed to ignoring it to our own demise. We are here to realize that y/our situation is leading to nothing unless we seek the truth: we aren't here to give up and decide that the truth is nothing. Well-being is the default purpose of an evolving pattern of life & consciousness: therefore omnipresence points directly toward well-being as a default feature of existence's inherent causal functioning.
Many people don't believe they're capable of great things since, apparently, such a huge portion of things to achieve have already been done: this thought is the lone obstacle standing before such achievements. However, we're no longer in a position to exercise the liezure of postponing a proper investigation into the most pertinent and profound subjects and events regarding our (well-)being: researching, discovering, discussing, and thereby any means spreading the truth about reality and our situation is the only thing that can ensure us any safety (and, fortunately, happens to be all we practically can do as a people against this "perfect crime"). The evidence provided below paints a detailed portrait of humanity's practical unwillingness to face this puzzling problem, and how simply we could just make the simple and necessary changes needed to maintain a sustainable & progressive well-being and existence.
I wish I knew what I knew now back when I first began my quest for truth: but atleast I now have the hindsight to perhaps convey these insights to others in a way I wish I had been taught. What I really want to convey, to anyone who hasn't figured it out fully for themselves yet, is that this quest you may or may not be on, or want to begin, is worth so, so, so much more than we can possibly conceive. How little did I know, even after I finished Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha, Journey to the East, Steppenwolf, and Glassbead Game, the true significance of these and other stories, philosophies, myths and teachings to come. It was not until I formulated the Syllogism of Spirit that I had the true - omniversal - vantage point to see the same message hidden in plain sight within all the profound things I had been thinking, seeking, reading and writing about: everyone was climbing the same obstacle which had the same objective at its monolithic peak. It was not until I worked out this proof that I was able to appreciate the epicness of the Bible and Jesus; something that, in hindsight, I almost cannot believe - or even conceive of how - I couldn't comprehend it all before. The research I began on humankind's unadressed and systematically supressed social and political underside and in science/philosophy would each happen to form a dialectic connecting ontological reality to the adversarial obstacle set by y/our omnipresent being's default omnipotence.

Ontology Past to Present
The Pluralist Narrative
"It would not be an exaggeration to say that the entirety of speculative ontology is taken up with examinations of the connections between Unity and Totality. It has been so from the very beginnings of metaphysics."
"A paradox: we live in the era of number's despotism; thought yeilds to the law of denumerable multiplicities; and yet (unless perhaps this very default, this failing, is only the obscure obverse of a conceptless submission) we have at our disposal no recent, active idea of what number is... We know very well what numbers are for: they serve, strictly speaking, for everything, they provide a norm for All. But we still don't know what they are...
"That number must rule, that the imperative must be: 'count!' - who doubts this today? And not in the maxim which, as Dekind knew, demands the use of the origional Greek when retracted: man is always counting - because it prescribes, for thought, its singular condition in the matheme. For, under the current empire of number, it is not a question of thought, but of realities." - Alain Badiou, Number & Numbers
"Badiou assumes but does not account for the status of the middle and mediating term - the status of beings (etants). Neither Badiou's ontology nor his logic seem to provide any clear place for ordinary ontic reality. What appears in our various Parisian worlds, clearly, are not instances of pure being or multiplicity, but people. Depending on the transcendtal configuration of their world, these people can then appear or exist as tranquil workers, patriotic heroes or rebellious insurgents, but in each case the transcendental appears to take the elementary ontic status of its inhabitants for granted. Between the being of a pure multiplicity and an appearing as docile or insurgent lies an abyss without meditation. The space that in other philosophies might be filled by an account of material actualisation or emergent self-realization (or any number of alternatives) is one that Badiou, so far, prefers to consign to contingency. If the transcendental of a world determines the ways in which its objects may appear, Badiou seems to presume a meta-transcendental register which simply gives a world the ontic raw material of its objects." - Hallward
"There are, therefore, some good reasons for now being concerned about a style of philosophy which eschews the business of trying to determine the ultimate categories of being (or of reality) and the fundamental ways in which they may be said - to put it in Aristotelian terms." - Milbank

Those who have been lucky enough to spark any substantial interest in the influential thoughts of Hermes, Parmenides, Plato, Siddhartha/Buddha, Lao Tsu,Yeshuah/Jesus, Decartes, Kant, Leibniz, Spinoza, Neitzsche, Wittgenstein, Yogannanda, Sartre, Popper, Focault, Delueze, Badiou, Zizek, Johnston, etc. know that, according to today's practiacally all-pervading pluralist premise, God has long since been sacrificed to the allegedly simultaneous configuration of others: contemporary pluralist - today's 'giants' of philosophy/etc. - have made it clear that we cannot keep God and others both alive (as a dual reality-of-realities). The ultimatum: reality or realities?
"How do we account for a whole which is larger than the mere sum of it's parts?"
- Slavoj Zizek
The One has the power to recover others in some redeeming fashion of retrogressive-reincarnation, whereas the other cannot be consistently contained by a positive ontological absolute: God allows for everyone to exist as one identity, whereas mutual exclusion leaves no place for God - no hope for omnipotence (An omnipotence potentially - presumably - capable of selectively reincarnating into a productive, as opposed to grossly pointless (excessively painful), succession of incarnations (inhabiting those lives which are in the end worth living for whatever reason[s]; not to put the worth of any one life above the other but, with everyone being one anyways, would we not all rather live lives that are all worth living in the end? This is not to ignore the metaphysical, karmic possibility that a life which is in the end not worth having lived, considering the gross majority of its suffering, could be experienced as karmic redemption; meaning that no one can put themselves above any other with regards to the desirability of their life over the other; indeed it would make sense for the victim of a criminal to be that criminals past or future incarnation -- two perfect explanations for karma as determined by how one treats one's direct self and one's self in the 'others.').

must discuss two books of exceptional merit and importance: Difference and Repetition and The Logic of Sense.1 Indeed, these books are so outstanding that they are difficult to discuss; this may explain, as well, why so few have undertaken this task. I believe that these words will continue to revolve about us in enigmatic resonance with those of Klossowski, another major and excessive sign, and perhaps one day, this century will be known as Deleuzian."
"One after another, I should like to explore the many paths that lead to the heart of these challenging tests. As Deleuze has said to me, however, this metaphor is misleading: there is no heart, but only a problem-that is, a distribution of notable points; there is no center but always decenterings, series, from one to another, with the limp of a presence and an absence-of an excess, of a deficiency. Abandon the circle, a faulty principle of return; abandon our tendency to organize everything into a sphere. All things return on the straight and narrow, by way of a straight and labyrinthine line. Thus, fibrils and bifurcation (Leiris's marvelous series would be well suited to a Deleuzian analysis)."
"I believe that these words will continue to revolve about us in enigmatic
resonance with those of Klossowski, another major and excessive sign, and perhaps one day, this century will be known as Deleuzian."
"More essentially, however, The Logic of Sense should be read as the boldest and most insolent of metaphysical treatises-on the simple condition that instead of denouncing metaphysics as the neglect of being, we force it to speak of extrabeing. Physics: discourse dealing with the ideal structure of bodies, mixtures, reactions, internal and external mechanisms, metaphysics: discourse dealing with the materiality of incorporeal things-phantasms, idols, and simulacra." - Focault

The following excerpts from Gilles Delueze's Logic of Sense explain the Antichrist's order of spirits (as directly opposed to Christ's Spirit): the chaos of our mutual exclusion v. the salvation of y/our exclusive omnipresence:
"The order of divine creation in fact depends on bodies, is suspended from them."
The factual validity of this statement is epistemologically barred from the cohesively exclusive moment of sense: it can only be falsified through the consistent proof of monism (above).
"In the order of God, in the order of existence, bodies give to minds (or rather impose on them) two properties: identity and immortality, personality and resurrectibility, incommunicatability and integrity."
To say that God is an order of multiple bodies as opposed to the exclusive omnipresent Spirit is not refer to the proper God of Christ (as opposed to the Antichrist described herein). The remaining texts don't really need commenting, they are straight forward and serve here to convey the starkly satanic sophistry dominating modern academia and Barnes and Noble philosophy shelves.
[Bolds and Italics added]:
"Says the docile nephew Antoine with regard to Octave's seductive theology: "What is incommunicability? - It is the principle according to which the being of an individual would not be attributable to serveral individuals, and which constitutes properly the self-identical person. What is the privative function of the person? - It is that of rendering our substance incapable of being assumed by a nature either inferior or superior to our own." It is insofar as it is tied to a body and incarnated that the mind acquires personality: separated from the body, in death, it recovers its equivocal and multiple power... Death and duplicity, death and multiplicity are therefore the true spirutal determinations, or the true spiritual events. We must understand that God is the enemy of spirits, that the order of God can run counter to the order of spirits; in order to establish immortality and personality, in order to impose it forcefully on spirits, God must depend upon the body. He submits the spirits to the privative function of resurrection. The outcome of God's way is "the life of the fleash." God is essentially the Traitor: he commits treason against spirits, treason against breath itself, and, in order to thwart their riposte, doubles the treason by incarnating himself..."
"The order of God includes the following elements: the identity of God as the ultimate foundation; the identity of the world as the ambient environment; the identity of the person as a well-founded agency, the identity of bodies as the base; and finally, the indentity of language as the power of denoting everything else."
In describing bodies as the base of God, Delueze is describing the God of others - dualist ontology - while ignoring the literal God of both Christ and the excluded middle.
"But this order of God is constructed against another order, and this order subsists in God and weakens him little by little. It is at this point that the story of Baphomet begins: in the service of God, the great master of the Templars has as his mission the sorting out of spirits and the preventions of their mixing together while awaiting the day of resurrection."
"This is another term of the dilemma, the system of breaths/spirits, the order of the Antichrist, which is opposed point for point to the divine order. It is characterized by the death of God, the destruction of the world, the dissolution of the person, the disintegration of bodies, and the shifting function of language which now expresses only intensisties... One cannot conserve the self without also holding on to God. The death of God essentially signifies, and essentially entails, the dissolution of the self. God's tomb is also the tomb of the self. Thus, the dilemma finds perhaps its most acute expression: the identity of the self always refers to the identity of something outside of us, therefore, "if it is God, our identity is pure grace, if it is the ambient world where everything begins and ends by denotation, our identity is but a pure grammatical joke."
"When you will have made him a body without organs, then you will have delivered him from all his automation reactions and restored him to his true freedom."
"Kant's genius lies in his showing that the self is the Idea which corresponds to the category of substance. Indeed, the self conditions not only the attribution of this category to phenomena of inner sense, but to those of outer sense as well, in virtue of their no less great immediacy. Thus, the self is revealed as the universal principle of the categorical syllogism, insofar as this relates a phenomenon determined as a predicate to a subject determined as substance. Kant shows also that the world is the idea which conditions the attribution of the category of causality to all phenomena. In this way, the world is the universal principle of the hypothetical syllogism, which consists in discovering the ontological implications of the latter, will thus find itself faced with a third and final task, a task which is by far the most delicate: there is no choice, it is left for God as the third idea to ensure the attribution of the category of community, that is, the mastery of the disjunctive syllogism. God is here, at least provisionally, deprived of his traditional claims - to have created subjects or made a world - and now has what is but an apparently humble task, namely, to enact disjunctions, or at least to found them."
"In fact, God is defined by the sum total of all possiblity, insofar as this sum consitutes an "originary" material or the whole of reality. The reality of each thing "is derived" from it: it rests in effect on the limitation of this totality, "inasmuch" as part of it (reality) is ascribed to the thing, and the rest is excluded - a procedure which is in agreement with the 'either-or' of the disjunctive major premise and with the determination of the object, in the minor premise and with the determination of th object, in the major premise, through one of the members of the division. In short, the sum total of the possible is an originary material from which the exclusive and complete determination of the concept of each thing is derived through disjunction. God has no other sense than that of founding this treatment of the disjunctive syllogism, since distributive unity does not allow us to conslude that his Idea represents a collective or singular unity of a being itself which would be represented by the idea."
"In Kant, therefore, we see that God is revealed as the master of the disjunctive syllogism only inasmuch as the disjunction is tied to exclusions in the reality which is derived from it, and this to a negative and limitative use. Klossowski's thesis, with the new critique of reason that it implies, takes on therefore its full significance: it is not God but rather the Antichrist who is the master of the disjunctive syllogism. This is because the anti-God determines the passage of each thing through all of its possible predicates. God, as being of beings, is replaced by the Baphomet, the "prince of all modifications," and himself modification or modifications. There is no longer any originary reality. The disjunction is always a disjunction, the "either-or" is always an "either-or." Rather than signifying that a certain number of predicates are excluded from a thing in virtue of the indentity of the corrsponding concept, the disjunction now signifies that each thing is opened up to the infinity of predicates through which it passes, on the condition that it lose its identity as a concept and as self. The disjunctive syllogism accedes to a diabolical principle and use, and simultaneously the disjunction is affirmed for itself without ceasing to be a disjunction; divergence or difference becomes objects of pure affirmation, and "either-or" becomes the power of affirmation, outside the conceptual conditions of the identity of God, a world, or a self. Dilemma and solecism aquire as such a superior positivity."
"What is this other side, this Baphomet system of pure breaths or mortal spirits? They do not have the person's identity, they have disposed and revoked it. But they nevertheless have a singularity, or even multiple singularities, they have fluctuations forming figures on the crests of waves. We reach here the point at which the Klossowskian myth of breaths/spirits becomes also a philosophy. It seems that breaths, in themselves and in ourselves, must be conceived of as pure intensities. In this form of intensive quantities or degrees, dead spirits have "subsistence," despite the fact that they have lost the "existence" or extension of the body. In this form they are singular, but have lost the indentity the self. Intensisties comprehend in themselves the unequal or the different - each one is already different in-itself - so that all of them are comprehended on the manifesto of every one. This is a world of pure intentions, as Baphomet explains: "no self-esteem prevails"; "every intention may yet be permeated by other intentions"; "only the most senseless intention of the past hoping for the future could triumph overa nother intention"; "were another breath to come to encounter it, they would then presuppose each other, but each one according to a variable intensity of intention." These are pre-individual and impersonal singularities - the splendor of the indefinite pronoun - mobile, communicating, penetrating one another across an infinity of degrees and an infinity of modifications. Fascinating world where the identity of the self is lost, not to the benefit of the identity of the One or the unity of the Whole, but to the advantage of an intense multiplicity and a power of metamophosis, where relations of force play within one another. It is the state of what must be called "complicato," as opposed to the Christian "simplificato.""
"And in Le Baphomet, Theresa is "insufflated" into the body of the young page, in order to form the androgynous or Prince of modification who is offered up to the intentions of others and gives himself to other spirits for participation: "I am not a creator who enslaves being to what he creates, his creation in a single self, and this self in a single body..." The system of the Antichrist is the system of simulacra opposed to the world of identities. But, as the simulacrum dismisses identity, speaks and is spoken, it takes hold at the same time of both seeing and is speaking and inspires both light and sound. It opens up to it difference and to all other differences. All simulacra rise to the surface, forming this mobile figure at the creation of the waves of intensity - an intense phantasm."
"... (E)very true thought is an agression... That everything is so "complicated," that I may be an other, that something else thinks in us an agression which is the agression of thought, in a multiplication which is the multiplication of the body, or in a violence which is the violence of language - this is the joyful message... Evoked (expressed) are the singular and complicated spirits, which do not possess a body without multiplying it inside the system of reflections, and which do not inspire language without projecting it into the projective system of resonances. Revoded (denounced) are the corporeal unicity, personal identity, and the false simplicity of language insofar as it is supposed to denote bodies and to manifest a self. As the spirits say to Robete, "we can be evoked, every but your body can also be revoked."
"The eternal return is indeed Coherence, but is is a coherence which does not allow my coherence, the coherence of the world and the coherence of God to subsist. The Nietzscgian repetition has nothing to do with the Kierkegaardian repetition; or, more generally, repetition in the eternal return has nothing to do with the Christian repetition. For what the Christian repetition brings back, it brings back once, and only once: the wealth of Job and the child Abraham, the resurrected body and the recovered self. There is a difference in nature between what returns "once and for all" and what returns for each and every time, or for an infinite number of times. The eternal return is indeed the Whole, but it is the Whole which is said of disjoint members or divergent series: it does not bring everything back, it does not bring about the return of that which returns but once, namely, that which aspires to recenter the circle, to render the series convergent, and to restore the self, the world, and God. In the circle of Dionysus, Christ will not return; the order of the Antichrist chases the other away. All of that which is founded on God and makes a negative or exclusive use of the disjunction is denied and excluded by the eternal return. All of that which returns once and for all is referred back to the order of God. The phantasm of Being (eternal return) brings about the return only of simulacra (will to power as simulacrum). Being a coherence which does not allow mine to subsist, the eternal return is the nonsense which distrubutes sense into divergent series over the entire circumference of the decentered circle - for "madness is the loss of the world and of oneself in view of a knowledge with neither beginning nor end."
"The affective charge with the phantasm is explained by the internal resonance whose bearers are the simulacra. The impression of death, of the rupture or dismemberment of life, is explained by the conditions of real experience and the structures of the world of art are reunited: divergence of series, decentering of circles, constitution of the chaos which envelopes them, internal resonance and movement of amplitude, agression of the simulacra." - Delueze
One after another, I should like to explore the many paths that lead to the heart of these challenging tests. As Deleuze has said to me, however, this metaphor is misleading: there is no heart, but only a problem-that is, a distribution of notable points; there is no center but always decenterings, series, from one to another, with the limp of a presence and an absence-of an excess, of a deficiency. Abandon the circle, a faulty principle of return; abandon our tendency to organize everything into a sphere. All things return on the straight and narrow, by way of a straight and labyrinthine line. Thus, fibrils and bifurcation (Leiris's marvelous series would be well suited to a Deleuzian analysis)." (Focault?; quoted from Delueze facebook page)
"The freeing of difference requires thought without contradiction, without dialectics, without negation; thought that accepts divergence; affirmative thought whose instrument is disjunction; thought of the multiple-of the nomadic and dispersed multiplicity that is not limited or confined by the constraints of the same; thought that does not conform to a pedagogical model (the fakery of prepared answers) but attacks insoluble problems - that is, a thought which addresses a multiplicity of exceptional points, which is displaced as we distinguish their conditions and which insists upon and subsists in the play of repetitions. Far from being the still incomplete and blurred image of an Idea that would, from on high and for all time, hold the answer, the problem lies in the idea itself, or rather, the Idea exists only in the form of a problem: a distinctive plurality whose obscurity is nevertheless insistent, and in which the question ceaselessly stirs. What is the answer to the question? The problem. How is the problem resolved? By displacing the question. The problem escapes the logic of the excluded third, because it is a dispersed multiplicity; it cannot be resolved by the clear distinctions of a Cartesian idea, because as an idea it is obscure-distinct; it seriously disobeys the Hegelian negative because it is a multiple affirmation; it is not subjected to the contradiction of being and non being, since it is being. We must think problematically rather than question and answer dialectically.
"The conditions for thinking of difference and repetition, as we have seen, have undergone a progressive expansion. First, it was necessary, along with Aristotle, to abandon the identity of the concept, to reject resemblance within representation, and simultaneously to free ourselves from the philosophy of representation; and now, it is necessary to free ourselves from Hegel-from the opposition of predicates, from contradiction and negation, from all of dialectics. But there is yet a fourth condition, and it is even more formidable than the others. The most tenacious subjectivation of difference is undoubtedly that maintained by categories. By showing the number of different ways in which being can express itself, by specifying its forms of attribution, by imposing in a certain way the distribution of existing things, categories create a condition where being maintains its undifferentiated repose at the highest level. Categories dictate the play of affirmations and negations, establish the legitimacy of resemblances within representation, and guarantee the objectivity and operation of concepts. They suppress anarchic difference, divide differences into zones, delimit their rights, and prescribe their task of specification with respect to individual beings. On one side, they can be understood as the a priori forms of knowledge, but, on the other, they appear as an archaic morality, the ancient decalogue that the identical imposed upon difference. Difference can only be liberated through the invention of an acategorical thought. But perhaps invention is a misleading word, since in the history of philosophy there have been at least two radical formulations of the univocity of being - those given by Duns Scotus and Spinoza. In Duns Scotus's philosophy, However, being is neutral, while for Spinoza it is based on substance; in both contexts, the elimination of categories and the affirmation that being is expressed for all things in the same way had the single objective of maintaining the unity of being. Let us imagine, on the contrary, an ontology where being would be expressed in the same fashion for every difference, but could only express differences. Consequently, things could no longer be completely covered over, as in Duns Scotus, by the great monochrome abstraction of being, and Spinoza's modes would no longer revolve around the unity of substance. Differences would revolve of their own accord, being would be expressed in the same fashion for all these differences, and being would be no longer a unity that guides and distributes them but their repetition as differences. For Deleuze, the noncategorical univocity of being does not directly attach the multiple to unity itself (the universal neutrality of being, or the expressive force of substance); it puts being into play as that which is repetitively expressed as difference. Being is the recurrence of difference, without there being any difference in the form of its expression. Being does not distribute itself into regions; the real is not subordinated to the possible; and the contingent is not opposed to the necessary. Whether the battle of Actium or the death of Antony were necessary or not, the being of both these pure events-to fight, to die-is expressed in the same manner, in the same way that it is expressed with respect to the phantasmatic castration that occurred and did not occur. The suppression of categories, the affirmation of the univocity of being, and the repetitive revolution of being around difference-these are the final conditions for the thought of the phantasm and the event."
"To consider a pure event, it must first be given a metaphysical basis." - Focault
To consider experience as pure event, it must be given a consistently scientific basis.
The only technically functional signification (however none the less nonsensical) for a theoretically functioning void would have to be a pre/non-existential - pre-absent; absolutely negative - state of reality: no dimension nor phenomena, nor for that matter any extension within which to contian the former, lies latent within the purely incomprehensible void. In order for the void to spontaneously manifest anything other than itself, it could only occur through the paradoxical nonsense of magic - causeless effects; really without explanation.
Everything comes from that source-state which is existence always-already in-itself - uniquely non-polar in that its conceptual opposite - the void - cannot co-exist with existence and must therefore be itself (void!): leaving existence to be itself also - everything everywhere. The latent polarity of existence becomes apparent only after the uniform zero-state passes into causal automation: then we proceed to see how every level of proportion & complexity within the omni-arching duality of being in-itself - with the one pole of uniformly static omniverse enveloping the other pole of finitesimal cosmic-causality polarized at every categorical level - reflects this spectral (bi-)polarity.
The idea that reality can be fundamentally paradoxical makes sense of nothing whatsoever. Russell and Wittgenstein thought that any claim to absolute truth is nonsensical: which is completely consistent considering that their absolute claim itself is made explicitly nonsensical by one's explicitly true existence - not-nothingness.
All others as one's potential incarnation has explicit [metaphysical] validity. If you and I are both omnipresent - one another's potential past or future incarnation - then the exclusive isolation of one's existence in-itself is simply reconfigured from the pluralist premise (of a mutual exclusion of otherness) into an exclusively all-inclusive omnipresence (presumably omnipotent). Once one is willing to face the facts, omnipresence possesses every possible self-utilitarian benefit as opposed to the dysjunctive division of realities set against realities. Omnipresence may make everyone else y/our potential past-future incarnations, but it also allows the potential for God to selectively incarnate into an omnipotently guided sequence of the choicest incarnations - a sequence which any presumably omnipotent omnipresence would lead blindly into through trial and error, progressively to the light of total self-realization.
Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon Writings
& Ontological Fragments
"The panopticon is nothing more than 'a simple idea in architecture,' never realized, describing 'a new mode of obtaining power of mind over mind, in a quantity hitherto without example' - the possessor of this power is 'the inspector' with his invisible omnipresence, 'an utterly dark spot' in the all-transparent, light-flooded universe of the panopticon."
- Miran Bosavic (introduction)
It doesn't seem to make any sense that nobody should be at the wheel of this world: could it be that this ominous black hole at the center of our inconsistencies is the all-seeing eye of the 'panopticon's' silent custodians? The cover of Verso's Radical Thinker's edition - of these panopticon papers/letters - is a plain white cover with evenly spaced lines leading from all around the cover's edge into the center where they each end to form a circular perimeter around which the lines end - the most basic image of a solar eclipse: a direct symbol of the sun's light (the center's illumined, life-bringing potency) blocked out by a symbol (and likely base of operations for the 'silent custodians') - & artificial satellite (?) - the moon; used to hack into earth's matrix of gross & astral/subtle energy forces (virtually/organically dictated by our Sun's radiant capacity of deep energy/data-storage).
The ontological/esoteric relevence of the eclipse is as follows: the sun represents the omnipresent light of omnipresence; the moon represents the universe of causal-consciousness; and earth - carnality - is the resulting shadow which the 'sun's' light must penetrate - prevail over - to 'reveal/complete' itself. This falls in line with the theological numerology which describes humankind as 5, the Devil as 6, and God as 7.

"Before you look at the plan, take in words the general idea of it.
"The building is circular.
"The apartments of the prisoners occupy the circumference. You may call them, if you please, the cells.
"These cells are divided from one another, and the prisoners by that means secluded from all communication with each other, by partitions in the form of radii issuing from the circumference towards the centre, and extending as many feet as shall be thought necessary to form the largest dimension of the cell.
"The apartment of the inspector occupies the centre; you may call it if you please the inspector's lodge.
"It will be convenient in most, if not all cases, to have a vacant space or area all round, between such centre and such circumference. You may call it if you please the intermediate or annular area.
"About the width of a cell may be sufficient for a passage from the outside of the building to the lodge.
"Each cell has in the outward circumference, a window, large enough, not only to light the cell but, through the cell, to afford light enough to the correspondent part of the lodge.
"The inner circumference of the cell is formed by an iron grating, so light as not to screen any part of the cell from the inspector's view.
"Of this grating, a part sufficiently large opens, in form of a door, to admit the prisoner at his first entrance; and to give admission at any time to the inspector or any of his attendants.
"To cut off from each prisoner the view of every other, the partitions are carried on a few feet beyond the grating into the intermediate area: such projecting parts I call the protracted partitions.
"It is conceived, that the light, coming in in this manner through the cells, and so across the intermediate area, will be sufficient for the inspector's lodge. But, for this purpose, both the windows in the cells, and those corresponding to them in the lodge, should be as large as the strength of the building, and what shall be deemed a necessary attention to economy, will permit.
"To the windows of the lodge there are blinds, as high up as the eyes of the prisoners in their cells can, by any means they can employ, be made to reach.
"To prevent thorough light, whereby, notwithstanding the blinds, the prisoners would see from the cells whether or not any person was in the lodge, that apartment is divided into quarters, by partitions formed by two diameters to the circle, crossing each other at right angles. For these partitions the thinnest materials might serve; and they might be made removable at pleasure; their height, sufficient to prevent the prisoners seeing over them from the cells. Doors to these partitions, if left open at any time, might produce the thorough light. To prevent this, divide each partition into two, at any part required, setting down the one-half at such distance from the other as shall be equal to the aperture of a door.
"These windows of the inspector's lodge open into the intermediate area, in the form of doors, in as many places as shall be deemed necessary to admit of his communicating readily with any of the cells.
"Small lamps, in the outside of each window of the lodge, backed by a reflector, to throw the light into the corresponding cells, would extend to the night the security of the day."
"The essence of it consists, then, in the centrailty of the inspector's situtation, combined with the well-known and most effectual contrivances for seeing without being seen."
"You will please to observe, that though perhaps it is the most important point, that the persons to be inspected should always feel themselves as if under inspection, at least as standing a great chance of being so, yet it is not by any means the only one."
"The most general and extensive propositions belonging to physics, in the largest sense of the word, including Somatology, and Psychology taken together, have been considered as forming, in like manner, a separate discipline, to which the name of Ontology has been assigned.
"The field of Ontology or, as it may otherwise be termed, the field of supremely abstract entities is a yet untrodden labyrinth, - a wilderness never hitherto explored.
"In the endeavor to bring these entities to view, and place them under the reader's eye in such sort that to each of their names, ideas as clear, correct, and complete as possible, may by every reader who will take the trouble, be annexed and remain attached, the following is the course that will be pursued."
"Existence is a quality, the most extensively applicable, and, at the same time, the most simple of all qualities actual or imaginable. Take away all other qualities, this remains: to speak more strictly, take any entity whatsoever, real or ficticious, - abstract the attention from whatsoever other qualities may have been found belonging to it, this will still be left. Existence is predicable of naked substance.
"Opposite to the idea of existence is that of non-existence. Non-existence is the negation of existence. Of every other entity, real or ficticious, either existence or non-existence is at all times predicable. Whether such other entity be real or ficticious, its existence is, of course, a ficticious entity; i.e. the word existence is, in all cases, the name of a ficticious entity."
"Existence being, as above, a species of quality, is itself a ficticious entity; - it is in every real entity - every real entity is in it.
"In it, the man, the object of whose appetite is the sublime, and he the object of whose appetite is the rediculous, may here find matter for their respective banquets. Nothing has been laughed at to satiety. The punster who has played with nothing till he is tired may renew the game with existence and non-existence.
"At any point of time, in any place whatsoever, take any entity, any real entity whatsoever, between its existence in that place and its non-existence in that same place, there is not any alternative, there is not any medium whatsoever.
"Quality itself is a ficticious entity, but these are all of them so many ficticious qualities... nonentities.
"Yet, nonentities as they are, but too real is the mischief of which some of them, and, in particular, the word necessity, has been productive: - antipathy, strife, persecution, murder upon a national, upon an international, scale."
"But against an object which the mind has contrived to exclude out of the field of its attention, no objection can, in that same field, be seen to bear. Whatsoever, therefore, were the considerations by which he was engaged to endeavor to persuade himself of the truth of the self-contradictory, and therefore, impossible, propositions, remain without anything to counteract their force."
"I hope no critic of more learning than candour will do an inspection-house so much injustice as to compare it to Dionysius' ear."
It is plain to see how Bentham's letters and Ontological Fragments made it into Verso's Radical Thinkers series: there is no avoiding the obvious symbolic & metaphorical parallels running between Bentham's all-seeing 'panopticon' prison & Satan's silent slave-system: Bentham's system being designed to prevent prison crimes via the all-seeing moniter-guard - invisible to prisoners; as Satan's central objective is to prevent his slaves from breaking his many illusions; making his mission known to those who make it their mission to know, while remaining invisible to the masses he distracts. *[Masons indeedly do build walls - The Wall.]

"The gist of Hallward's argument is clear: the ontological structure of a purely formal mathematical multiplicity is not enough to provide (account for) the "raw material," the ontic density of beings, of positive entities (material objects) caught into a world, organized through its transcendental frame... Convincing as it appears, this argument nonetheless imputes to Badiou's notion of the "transcendental" a perspectival status: it only works if, in a traditional Kantian way, we conceive noumenal reality. If, however, we follow Badiou and conceive World - the transcendental structuring principle - as structurally immanent to ontic reality, then we have to conclude that beings, in their very material density and wealth of property, exist ALWAYS and ONLY as part of a World and its determinate situation. Beings are not a neutral "raw stuff" getting caught into one and then another transcendental network - the neutral "stuff" outside every situation is only the mathematical multiplicity. There is another important consequence to be drawn from this absolute immanence of the transcendental: one should totally reject any notion of the symptomal point of a situation as the effect of the resistance of the inconsistent multiplicity of ontic reality to getting caught into the grid of transcendental consistency. The point of inconsistency, of the "symptomal torison" of a situation, is generated by its very immanent transcendental structure.
"Where, then, does Badiou's flaw reside? Badiou reacted to the "obscure disaster" of the fall of socialist regimes - and, more generally, to the exhaustion of the revolutionary event of the twentieth century - by making a step from history to ontology: it is important to note how it was only after this "obscure disaster" that, in his theoretical edifice, he started to play with the double meaning of the term "state [etat]" - the "state of things" and State as the apparatus of social power. The danger of this move is that, by way of establishing a direct link, a short circuit, as it were, between a particular historical form of social organization and a basic ontological feature of the universe, it (implicitly, at least) ontologizes-eternalizes state as a form of political organization: (the political) state becomes something we should resist, subtract ourselves from, act at a distance from, but simultaneously something which cannot ever be abolished (save in utopian dreams). Is this step from history to ontology, from State qua political apparatus to state qua state of things, this short circuit State = state, not an elementary idealogical operation?
"Due to this short circuit between state and State, Badiou gets caught in the typical Kantian ambiguity apropos the question: is the injunction to abandon the form of Party-State, to subtract onself from State, to act in the interstices of State, an a priori necessity of radical emancipatory politics as such, or is it just the expression of a certain (our) historical moment, the one of the global defeat of radical politics? In other words, when Badiou interprets the failure of the Cultural Revolution as the exhaustion of the "Leninist" Party-State revolutionary paradigm, does he mean by this that this paradigm was appropriate for our period, or does he mean that our historical moment has the privelege of granting us the insight into a universal feature of radical emancipatory politics which was obfuscated in previous epochs (which is why the "Leninist" paradigm ended up in a dismal failure, in an "obscure disaster")? Badiou is ambiguous here: sometimes he implies that we are dealing with a succession of historical epochs, and sometimes (say, when he talks about the end of History, of global politics, even conceiving it as the last consequence of the "death of God," and emphasizes that politics should be a local intervention into a local situation) that we are dealing with an a priori necessity.
"To put it yet another way, what is wrong with state-representation is not that it contaminates/mystifies the presence of the reproductive Real, but quite the opposite: it constitutes it (or, rather, its illusion). The State (apparatus) does not contaminate (or parasitize upon) the "apolitical" spheres of economy, of private life, of sexuality, and so on; it constitutes them as apolitical or pre-political - the ultimate task of state apparatuses is to depoliticize these spheres, to regulate their apolitical status by means of coercive ideological apparatuses..." - Adrian Johnston
"The big-motif of the post-Hegelian anti-philosophy is the excess of the pre-conceptual productivity of Presence over its representation: representation is reduced to the "mirror of representation" (the title of one of Baudrillard's early books) which reflects in a distorted way its productive ground:
"The post-Hegelian philosophy (or, if one prefers, anti-philosophy) started off with this fundamental claim: symbolic representations which were traditionally considered as access to the truth and to the real of Being do in fact alienate us from Being and drform it (or our perception of it). And classical philosophy (or "metaphysics") was suddenly recognized as the queen of this representative misrepresentation.
"Indeed, if one were to name one central issue that distinguishes the rise of modern though it is perhaps none other than precisely the issue of representation (and the question of the One and/ or Multiple is part of this issue), its profound interrogation, and the whole conseuqent turn against (the logic of) representation... In politics, this also was a central issue: who represents people and how they can be properly represented? Why are some represented and some not?" - Baudrillard
"In "post-structuralism," the relation between the two terms is turned around: presence itself is denounced as the illusionary result of a dispersed productive process defined as anti-presence, as a process of self-differing, and so on; however, the encompassing framework remains that of productions versus representation, of a productive process occluded by/in the false transparency of its representation..."
This passage is diametrically opposed to Jesus' advise to "recognize what is within your sight, for there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed." Johnston reduces experience to a 'false transparency of representation,' as opposed to a direct dimension of reality's (omni-)presence (/situation).
""Idealism" or "metaphysics" are the names for the illusion that the circle of representation can close upon itself, totally obliterating the traces of its decentered production process."
The Syllogism of Spirit has retraced the decentered dysjunction of pluralism using steps that pluralists could not, or would not, trace back into a consistent production.
"Anti-philosophy develops here its own version of the logic of "surture": it conceives suture as the mode in which the exterior is inscribed in the interior, thus "suturing" the field, producing the effect of self-enclosure with no need for an exterior, effacing the traces of its own production; traces of the production process, its gaps, its mechanisms, are obliterated, so that the product can appear as a naturalized organic whole. However, the much more crucial aspect is the obverse one: not only "no interior without exterior," but also "no exterior without interior." Therein resides already the lesson of Kant's transendental idealism: in order to appear as a consistent Whole, external reality has to be "surtured" by a subjective element, an artificial supplement that has to be added to it in order to generate the effect of reality, like the painted background that confers on a scene the illusory effect of "reality." This is the object petit a for Lacan: the subjective element constitutive of objective-external reality.
"The matrix of an external site of production that inscribes itself into the domain of illusions it generates has thus to be supplemented: this matrix simply does not account for the emergence of the SUBJECT. According to the standard (cinematic) suture theory, the "subject" is the imaginary agent which, while dwelling inside the space of the constituted phenomena, is (mis)perceived as their generator. This, however, is not what the Lacanian "barred subject" is about: in the standard suture theory, the subject is that which represents, within the constituted space, its absent cause/outside (production process), while the Lacanian subject can be conceptualized solely when we take into account how the very externality of the generative process ex-sists only insofar as the stand-in of the constituted domain is present in it.
"The notion of reflexivity might be of some help here: to put it succinctly, "suture" means that external difference is always an internal one, that the external limitation of a field of phenomena always reflects itself within this field, as its inherent impossibility to fully become itself... We can see how, in this precise sense, suture is the exact opposite of the illusory self-enclosed totality that successfully erases the decentered traces of its production process: suture means precisely that such self-enclosure is a priori impossible, that the excluded externality always leaves its traces within - or, to put it in the standard Freudian terms, that there is no repression (from the scene of phenomenal self-experience) without the return of the repressed. This is what Lacan aims at in his persistent reference to the torus and other variations of Mobius-strip-like structures in which the relationship between inside and outside is inverted: if we want to grasp the minimal structure of subjectivity, the clear-cut opposition between inner subjective experience and outer objective reality is not sufficient - there is an excess on both sides. On the one hand, we should accept the lesson of Kant's transcendental act..."
This belief that the modius strip (divided into sections proportionately equal to the whole) models some ontic discord between the part and the whole can be resolved by a simple fact: the two sides of any normal strip are already one side before you fold it into the mobius model! To be physically technical, in reality there is no disconnect between either side: if one were to simply put two paper strips together, as one, and opened up the area between the lines where each end meets to form a circle, one would see that the top and bottom side are one, continuing cohesively into one another regardless of a strip-modality's paper-thinness.
"... In other words, Kant does not deny the distinction between the multitude of subjective impressions and objective reality; his point is merely that this very distinction results from the intervention of a subjective gesture of transcendental constitution."
"Furthurmore, what this means is that one should leave behind the standard notion of the One (in all its different guises, up to the Master Signifier) as a secondary "totalization" of the primordially dispersed inconsistent field of productivity. To put the paradox in its most radical form: it is the very One which introduces inconsistency proper - without One, there would have been just flat indifferent multiplicity. "One" is origionally THE signifier of (self-)division, the ultimate supplement/excess; by way of re-marking the preexisting real, the One divides it from itself, it introduces its noncoincidence with itself. Consequently, to radicalize things even more, the Lacanian One as the Master Signifier is stricto sensu the signifier of its own impossibility. Lacan makes this point clear when he emphasizes how every One, every Master Signifier, is simultaneously S(A), a signifier of the lack of/in the Other, of its inconsistency. So it is not only that there is Other because the One cannot ever fully coincide with itself - there is One (Lacan's "Y a d'l'Un") because the Other is "barred," lacking/inconsistent:
'Lacan's S1, the (in)famous "master signifier" or "phallic signifier" is, paradoxically, the only way to write that " the One is not" and that what "is" is the void that constitutes the origional disjunction in the midst of every count-for-one.'"
- Adrian Johnston, Badiou & Zizek - The Candence of Change [Appendix B]
Without distinguishing any clear-cut division between subconscious obscenity - or the universal conditioning of all negative pasts and possibilities - and the super-ego, 'Zizek is fully prepared to accept that we are all implicated in the darkest of desires.'
"In the last analysis, the Ultimate Cause alone can be denominated wise; in simpler words, only God is good." - Manly P. Hall
Existence in-itself in inherently - always-already - innocent - good - because it is always-already preconscious - a latent subject. The nature of the individual's reality is written everywhere within and around us: especially in the process and products of both physical & biological evolution. There are endless ways life could be formed and sustained to develope: however, the default of all life follows a basic pattern which strives for a higher state of well-being. So long as certain fundamental degrees of omnipotence are met, the abstract formalities it takes make no difference. What is the point in blindly believing that life is a contingent shout in the dark, without anything to echo off? There is no reason to believe that being couldn't inherently be something more: something actually worth everything - itself. I see it seeping from every pore of existence: the 'universal-will-to-become' something more.
The idea of karma can relate only to how one treats one's self and others: for good and bad - pain and pleasure - are purely phenomenal. The possibilities allowing for the conditioning of any pain is always-already latent within the universal potential of all possibilities positive, neutral, and negative: therefore, the newborn is inherently innocent since guilt is a karmic relativity. This inherent innocence is always-already a positive feature of any possible automated omnipresence. This innocence remains perfectly intact regardless of what preceding to present conditions may dictate, and come to dictate, the blind newborn: every trial and error is meant for learning of, yearning for, and earning the incomprehensibly vast and complex omnipotence presumably inherent to any omnipresence.
Karmic conditioning is what caused the crucifixion of Christ's perfection: in order to balance the order of karma manifest in humanity - as a pore/macrocosm of God/one's self - God had to experience the victim so as to achieve exclusively all-inclusive redemption.
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him." - John
The Tower of Error
"But its like we weren't made for this world! Though I wouldnt really want to meet someone who was." - Of Montreal
"The Devil is, of course, an essential ingredient in any religion which preaches Redemption. To overcome evil, in the first place one must have evil to overcome. Even a Church reformer like Luther insists that without the Devil and the threat of damnation there is little need for either Christ or his Church." - Godwin
The necessity of error means that in order for one to achieve self-realization, one must first fling one's self into the realm of blind error so as to effect a(ny) proper realization. Omnipotence allows for error because one cannot act beyond one's better knowledge.
"Imagine a world in which everything you said was right, and everything everyone else said was also right, a world, in fact, in which there was no error, only instant and transparent veracity. What an impossible burden that would be: with no space for dispute, argumentation or qualification, or scope for the development of knowledge, conversation would dry up to the exchange of veradical statements and declaratives and their endless confirmation."
One of course cannot consciously reflect on a technically endless virtuality of things never to be made completely known to an originative/finite memory.
"As Hegel says in the Phenomenology, the subject 'cannot know what he [really] is until he has made himself a reality through action' (that is through the consciousness and actions of others). As a consequence, there is a fundamental shift 'downwards' in Hegel from where truth speaks. If truth is historical, and thereby 'after the event', those who invariably speak for truth - the powerful - are by definition desposed from the place of their own confidence and self-justification. This is why the error takes on a very different character in Hegel. Because reason, as subscribed to by the powerful, cannot escape the vicssitudes of error, Kant's rational teleogy is divested of the link it makes between its overt moral presumptions, the self-interests of the aristocracy and the emerging bourgeoisie and universalism. History is not just made from the exercise of the rational will under the rule of bourgeois law, but from the messy and conflicted embodiment of subjects in the collective byways, retreats, reversals and cul-de-sacs of politics and culture. Indeed, it is the production of reason out of, and in response to, these deflections and failures of historical development and progress, that constitute the material ground of historical truth (what Hegel famously called Spirit).
"Now, this is not to say that this Spirit is cognate with the interests of the lower classes and the proletariat - this is to read Marx's critique of Hegel back too easily and simplistically into Hegel - but rather, that in exchanging Kant's embedded rational will for an embodied rational will, Hegel establishes a view of the development of reason as grounded in the working through and overcoming of those lower forms of culture and politics that block or inhibit universal human freedom (or the absolute meaning of being). Effectively then, reason looks for the manifestations and signs of this freedom (the Absolute) in the concrete, contingent objects and relations of everyday life, across all classes. And of course this is where subject and object, theory and practice cohere in Hegel: historical subjects make their reason from their material and intellectual engagement with, and transformation of, and failure to transform, the world. Or more precisely, as a socialized subject, the 'I' is both determined by, and the creator of, the world he or she inhabits. This means, for Hegel, therefore, that the universal ends of reason cannot be imposed on recalcitrant objects, but must be produced - as a historical process - through the actual failure of this universality to find its realization in the world. Consequently, it is precisely in the ironic gap between intention and outcome, conscious decision and unconscious desire, empirical immediacy and truth, that reason is given this temporal form. Errors, therefore, as the constitutive materials of progress, of the work of the unconscious, and the 'cunning of reason', are no longer the enemies of truth, but their medium and mediator. Truth and error become intimates and dialectical partners. This is why, in the language of Descartes, the pursuit of knowledge may represent the realm of uncertainty and falsity, but it is also the means by which truth emerges... [B]y entering this new temporal order, the error in hegel generates a different positional or spatial sense for a theory of truth. If truth 'is the movement of itself within itself' this means that the critique, dissolution and supersession of the error is never just a matter of the cut that leaves no remainder on its way to the future. On the contrary, under the logic of Hegel's Aufhebung, no error is ever forgotten or lost to the historical process; for in its failure to realize reason, or in its dereliction of truth, it not only provides the sustenance for the continued realization of reason and truth, but it offers the means to imagine and reconceptualize what truth was in the pursuit of furthur inquiries into truth. Thus every negation is an immanent determination, in which its negated content is preserved in the memory of all previous negations. Hence, to negate involves a two-way movement: a move away and 'above' the thing negated and a move back to the thing negated in order to prepare the ground for the possible re-possesion of the thing negated and for furthur negations. This move back and forth, presupposes that the viability of any system of truth must be based on the interiorization and recovery of its own unfolding and conditionality. For truth to emerge, and continue to emerge, it must be able to process. And this is what Hegel means precisely by truth as the movement of itself within itself: negation is the 'self-movement of the concept.' Or as Adorno defines it in his Hegel: Three Studies: the self-movement or labour of the concept, 'is both labor inherent in following an object that is by nature dialectical. Thought imitates the dialectical nonidentity of reality, in which the subject participates.'
"This conept of truth as self-movement, however, is not one focused on, or constitutive of the subject - certainly not in the sense that Kant understood the subject. This is something we need to be clear about. When Hegel talks about the subject, and the participation of the subject in the self-movement of the concept he is not referring in Kant's sense to a singular interiority, defined by its autonomous capacity for synthesizing representations. This is merely the husk of subjectivity. On the contrary, because the subject is never transparent to itself or all to itself, the synthesis of representations is always in a state of dissolution or preparation for dissolution. As Hans-Georg Gadamer outlines:
the structural identity between the process of what lives and [Hegelian] self-
consciousness demonstrates that self-consciousness is not at all the individua-
lized point of 'I=I,' but rather, as Hegel says, 'the I which is we and the we which is
I', which is to say, spirit.
"It is all this swarming of the impalpable that must be integrated into our thought: we must articulate a philosophy of the phantasm construed not through the intermediary of perception of the image, as being of the order of an originary given but, rather, left to come to light among the surfaces to which it is related..." Focault
"The human being is this night, this empty nothing, that contains everything - an unending wealth of many representations, images, of which none belong to him - or which are not present." - Hegel
"What is particularly important is that we can admit that (i) a system can have separate local components [for] which (ii) there is no center or localized self, and yet the whole behaves as a unit and for the observer it is as if there was a coordinating agent "virtually" present at the center." - Francisco Varela
Varela's above quote comes close to the reality of omnipresence accept for where he suspects its virtual nature: virtuality describes the phenomena structure of all sense whereas reality is the term to describe the presence of this sense's being in-itself.
"Ontology grasps the other only as what escapes, as invisible or abstract lines of flight carrying on vertiginously into infinity, as impossibilities spiralling into a "beyond" of the situation itself. The other infects ontology like a virus, causes thought to question itself."
Epistemologically, the other can only ever be plugged into a(ny) ontological syllogism.
"The other is why ontology is insufficient and why it always already demands a meta-ontology, and perhaps even explains the disconcerting rigor of ontology's essence: a code of codes designed to produce a generalized, cosmic decoding."
The Syllogism of Spirit demonstrates that ontology is why the other is excessive; and why the pluralist premise will always require a meta-ontology; and why Ockam's razor is a wise, is at times tricky, intuition.
"Multiplicity is the outside:"
As well as the insides by necessity - every phenomenal inside respectively.
"... ontology grasps the Other only in the form of the void-set, thereby grounding multiplicity in the void [What ground?]. The ontologist prays: the void is One, being is empty, God is dead. Anarchy and servitude, chaos plus trancendence: strangely enough, this is precisely how ontology forces an overflow, an excess, which causes it to precisely catch sight of its other: An agitation which awakens." - (Other)
There cannot be two purely separate uni/omni-verses - existing in mutually exclusive, non-relating existential domains: like the 'DC comic-universe' and the 'Marvel comic-universe.' A key to comprehending the verifiable reality underlying everything is the way one is forced to use the same singular term - exist - for everything said to exist as such: to say that everything exists is to say that everything is taking part in this common dimension of a complete not-nothingneness. There is literally nothing with which to mutually and positively posit, let alone causally connect, these mutally exclusive, theoretical existential domains because (not) together they establish what would need to be an apparently non-existential domain (negative in-itself; ontologically incomplet[abl]e - infinitesimal ontic pluralism): no kind of causality may occur between the two mutually exclusive existences. If, for any (two or more) objects to possess an existence mutually exclusive from everything else, there can be no causal link between the two: this would fly right into the face of the second law of thermodynamics. Everything in existence must consistently relate - contribute - to the complete collective/totality of existence(s) - ontological reality/realities. The presumed simultaneity of mutually exclusive experiences presents this obvious paradox: any closed/complete reality in-itself cannot experience two or more exclusive experiences at once so, one must ask, how do we account for the production of multiple realities cut off from the foundation of a reality surely always-already in-itself?

"If transcendence is to be achieved against Hegel's strictly speaking atheistic closure of immanence upon itself, one has indeed to look for traces of somethingwhich escapes reflection."
Immanent experience as God is not aethiestic - it is a gnosis whichcan be led to through healthily unbiased agnosticism.
"As we will see later, Hegel's own form of expression falls short of the content itattempts to express. Hegel does not achieve absolute closure of form. There is nological 'absolute form,' as Hegel believes, precisely because reflection in its all-embracing claim to positivity cannot sufficiently reflect its being conditioned by a process which is not always already reflexive."
Unless of course the only sufficiency required by God to experienceOne's exclusively all-inclusive Self is to always already be not-nothing.
"The reflection of being and the being of reflection do not coincide because thereis no self-sufficient medium of expression, no possible identity of the position of enunciation (Fregean 'sense') and of the Thing or states of affairs (Fregean'reference'). We can only attain the Thing in its conceptual disguises, i.e. under acertain description, without ever making sure once and for all that the Thing isthere. For even the designator 'Thing' is part of the field of sense: language is itsown minimal difference."Hegel's master-thought is conveyed by his logic of reflection. Whatever we refer to as the One - that true referrent or meaning of our expression that is supposedlydistorted by the propositional structure of our judgement - is in point of fact only aside-effect of the movement of absolute negativity."
The distortion of our judgement clearly lies in the pluralist's presumptuous proposition that there exist states of affairs which can beontologically distinguished by subject's simultaneously (co-)existentexclusivity.
"There is no originary abiding One. 'Substance becomes subject' designatesHegel's epoch-shifting moce beyond transcendent metaphysics: the subject'ssubstance is only retroactively posited by the process of the subject's self-constitution. This process necessarily misfires if we conceive of it in terms of some underlying metaphysical reality manifesting itself."
Ontological* - not 'metaphysical' - reality.
"The history of philosophy text-book version of Hegel according to whichabsolute spirit is some God-like super-mind steering the course of events untilHegel emerges and assumes the role of the mouthpiece of the super-mind thereby even overcoming Jesus Christ's confused expression of the absolute spirit etc.,ignores Hegel's concept of manifestation. Hegel's point indeed is that 'thedetermination of spirit is manifestation.' It is crucial to remark that 'manifestation'here does not refer to some representational structure, i.e. to a manifestation of something which is ontologically prior to its manifestation. As Hegel writes, spiritdoes not reveal 'something,' but its very mode and meaning is this revelation... Subjectivity is, thus, a radical instance of ontological genesis: it consists in its positing itself, in generating a field of sense, and in this sense a world to beinhabited. This process has no external foothold in a transcendent realm but restssoley on and in itself." - Slavoj Zizek and Markus Gabriel
The 'super-mind' concept does not in any way ignore Hegel'sconception of 'manifestation' as the auto-ontic genesis of causal-consciousness; nor does it overcome Jesus' monism but, rather, consistencylines up with it.
"Substances do not interact. Every substance is eternal. Bodies arephenomena, not independently real. Choices are determined but free.This is the best possible world. I first encountered Leibniz in anintroduction to Modern Philosophy and the image of him as a philosopher soenthralled with his reasoning as to deny the reality in front of him stuck withme for a long time. It wasn't that his arguments were bad, but that their conclusions seemed obviously false. Wouldn't a swift kick in the shin sufficeto prove that substances do interact, that bodies are real, and perhaps even that this is not the best possible world?
"Only if you fall into the univerally fatal pluralist presumption of multiple ontological entities: otherwise, Leibiz is ontologically consistentwith the monist position. The first three sentences, for example, are paradoxical unless you presume that only one substance exists.
"God is the first reason of things: for such things as are bounded, as all thatwhich we see and experience, are contingent and have nothing in them torender their existence necessary, it being plain that time, space, and matter,united and uniform in themselves and indifferent to everything, might haverecieved entirely other motions and shapes, and in another order."
"Therefore one must seek the reason for the existence of the world, which isthe whole assemblage of contingent things, and seek it in the substancewhich carries with it the reason for its existence, and which in consequencein necessary and eternal."
"The sufficient reason for the contingent world we experience must comefrom something which exists not as one of several possibilities, but as theonly possibility. That is, its non-existence must be impossible, which meansits existence, or as Leibniz puts it, it carries with it the reason for its ownexistence. This move from contingency to necessity is not quite the same asthe claim that there must be a first cause. Even if this world has no beginning, running in a chain of causes to infinity, it would still need areason why it was this particular infinite chain of causes. Leibniz gives theexample of a geometry book that was copied from a previous book, whichwas copied from a previous book, and so on. Even if that chain of copieswent infinitely back in time, we would still need a reason for the particular content of that book (AG 149). Leibniz continues the argument above toshow not only that God exists but also what God must be like: Moreover, this cause must be intelligent: for this existing world beingcontingent and an infinity of other worlds being equally possible, andholding, so to say, equal claim to existence with it, the cause of the worldmust needs have had regard or reference to all these possible worlds in order to fix upon one of them. This regard or relation of an existent substance tosimple possibilities can be nothing other than the understanding which hasthe ideas of them, while to fix upon one of them can be nothing other thanthe act of the will which chooses. It is the power of this substance thatrenders its will efficacious. Power relates to being, wisdom or understandingto truth, and will to good. (T 127)
"This necessary being must provide the sufficient reason for this world,which means first of all that it must have some way to bring together and grasp all the possible worlds."- Franklin Perkins, Leibiz: A Guide for the Perplexed

"Spinoza believed God exists and is abstract and impersonal. Spinoza's system imparted order and unity to the tradition of radical
thought, offering powerful weapons for prevailing against "received authority." As a youth he first subscribed to Descartes's dualistic belief that body and mind are two separate substances, but later changed his view and asserted that they were not separate, being a single identity. He contended that everything that exists in Nature (i.e., everything in the Universe) is one Reality (substance) and there is only one set of rules governing the whole of the reality which surrounds us and of which we are part. Spinoza viewed God and Nature as two names for the same reality, namely the single substance (meaning "that which stands beneath" rather than "matter") that is the basis of the universe and of which all lesser "entities" are actually modes or modifications, that all things are determined by Nature to exist and cause effects, and that the complex chain of cause and effect is understood only in part. His identification of God with nature was more fully explained in his posthumously published Ethics. That humans presume themselves to have free will, he argues, is a result of their awareness of appetites while being unable to understand the reasons why they want and act as they do. Spinoza has been described by one writer as an "Epicurean materialist."" - Wikipedia
"Still, in essence, a treatise on God, man, and his well-being, the Ethics wasan attempt to provide a fuller, clearer, and more systematic layout in"thegeometric style" for his grand metaphysical and moral project. Whenfinished, many years later, Spinoza's five-part magnum opus would offer arigorous demonstration of the way to human hapiness in a world governed by strict causal determinism and filled with obstacles to our well-being,obstacles to which we are naturally prone to react in not entirely beneficialways."Spinoza begins the Ethics by arguing that at the most basic ontologicallevel, the universe is a single, unique, infinite, eternal, necessarily existingsubstance. This is what is most real, and he calls it "God or Nature" (Duessive Natura)... God just is the fundamental, eternal, infinite substance of reality and the first cause of all things. Everything else that is belongs to (or is a "mode" of) Nature."Above, God signifies the existential domain prior to the automatedgenesis of causality & consciousness; whereas Nature signifies the phenomenon of polarity as the spatiotemporal continuum."All things within nature - that is, everything - are invariably and necessarilydetermined by Nature. There is nothing that escapes Nature's laws; there areno exceptions to its ways. Whatever is, follows with an absolute necessityfrom Nature's necessary universal principles (God's attributes). There arethus no purposes for Nature or within Nature. Nothing happens for anyultimate reason or to serve any goal or overarching plan. Whatever takes place does so only because it is brought about by the ordinary causal order of Nature.""Spinoza then turns to the nature of the human being and its place in Nature. Nature, as infinite substance, has infinite attributes or essences, eachconstituting a kind of universal nature of things. We know of only two of these attributes: Thought (or thinking essence, the stuff of minds) andExtension (material essence, the stuff of bodies). The course of Nature isone, since Nature is one sibstance, a unity."The ideal of the free, rational individual presented in the Ethics provides amodel for a virtuous human life liberated from various illusions and seekingwhat is truly in its best interest (as opposed to those things that merely causetransitory pleasures)."The highest forms of knowledge, "as difficult as it is rare," is a thoroughunderstanding of Nature and its ways. This includes an intellectual intutitionof how the essence of anything (especially of oneself and all of one's mentaland bodily states) follows from Nature's most universal elements - or, sinceGod and Nature are one and the same, how the essence of anything relates to God...
"The virtuous person sees the necessity of all things, and istherefore less troubled by what may or may not come his way. Heregards the vicissitudes of fortune with equanimity, and his happiness isnot subject to circumstances beyond his control." - Steven Nadler
"Spinoza believed that there was no such thing as personal immortality: this could be a way of saying that everything is in flux; or a way to say thatno one lives forever. He believes that immortality isn't the true reward of virtue but, rather, understanding.Although I admire Spinoza's systematic ontology - Ethics (the most proper title, for ontology must be explored morally for the universal benefitsof truth) - I do not embrace Spinoza's system as a whole: particularly withhis contention that God is without phenomenal attributes - withoutexperience."Spinoza contends that "Dues sive Natura " ("God or Nature") is a being of infinitely many attributes, of which thought and extension are two. Hisaccount of the nature of reality, then, seems to treat the physical and mentalworlds as one and the same. The universal substance consists of both bodyand mind, there being no difference between these aspects. This formulationis a historically significant solution to the mind-body problem known asneutral monism. Spinoza's system also envisages a God that does not ruleover the universe by providence, but a God which itself is the deterministicsystem of which everything in nature is a part. Thus, according to thisunderstanding of Spinoza's system, God would be the natural world andhave no personality." - Wikipedia, Spinoza
"According to Kant, a priori knowledge is transcendental, or based on the form of all possible experience, while a posteriori knowledge is empirical, based on the content of experience. Kant states, "... it is quite possible that our empirical knowledge is a compound of that which we receive through impressions, and that which the faculty of cognition supplies from itself (sensuous impressions giving merely the occasion)." Thus, unlike the empiricists, Kant thinks that a priori knowledge is independent of the content of experience; moreover, unlike the rationalists, Kant thinks that a priori knowledge, in its pure form, that is without the admixture of any empirical content, is knowledge limited to the deduction of the conditions of possible experience. These a priori, or transcendental conditions, are seated in one's cognitive faculties, and are not provided by experience in general or any experience in particular. Kant nominated and explored the possibility of a transcendental logic with which to consider the deduction of the a priori in its pure form. Concepts such as
time and cause are counted among the list of pure a priori forms. Kant reasoned that the pure a priori forms are established via his transcendental aesthetic and transcendental logic. He claimed that the human subject would not have the kind of experience that it has were these a priori forms not in some way constitutive of him as a human subject. For instance, he would not experience the world as an orderly, rule-governed place unless time and cause were operative in his cognitive faculties. The claim is more formally known as Kant's transcendental deduction and it is the central argument of his major work, the Critique of Pure Reason. The transcendental deduction does not avoid the fact or objectivity of time and cause, but does, in its consideration of a possible logic of the a priori, attempt to make the case for the fact of subjectivity, what constitutes subjectivity and what relation it holds with objectivity and the empirical." Wikipedia
It is explicitly proven or it isn't. Every conveivable conscious presence capable of self-reflective reasoning regarding the ontological valences of purely a priori forms - terms such as: being/existence, void, unity, duality, plurality, in/finity, space and time, mind and matter, uniformity, cohesion, static vs causal, default vs contingent/ universal vs abstract, in/consistency, premise & conclusion, real(ity) - symbo-lic/virtual - imaginary/formal (Lacan), etc.; concepts such as: ontic ultimatums (infinite vs finite temproal, causal, & conscious past; omnipresent reality vs dysjunctive plurality of realities), falsification, etc.; and solutions regarding the problems, or puzzles [epistemological obstacles] of ontic paradox - can clearly comprehend - distinctly discern - certain consistent attributes of an(y) explicitly exclusive existence which are universally common to every observer as such. There is no detectable dissonance between each order of complexity regarding the truth-value within which each explicit element is clearly & consistently grounded.
"Descarte's contention is that by inspecting the one truth ("I think, therefore I am."), we can discover a rule or criterion about all truths. Why am I so certain that "I think, therefore I am" is true? According to Descartes, the only feature of this statement that convinces me that it is true is that I clearly and distinctly see, or understand, what is being said. If this clarity and distinctness are the only conditions that produce my conviction, and they are not general conditions that all truths must have, than I might be mistaken in this case. If clarity and distinction are not the standards or criteria of truth, and they are all that indicates that "I think, therefore I am" is true, then that assertion may actually be false. Therefore, the argument concludes, clarity and distinctness must be the marks of truth, the distinguishing characteristics by which you can tell the true from the false. Hence the rule can be formulated, "Whatever is clearly and dinstinctly conceived is true."" - Richard H Popkin & Avrum Stroll (Ph.D.'s)
"... He hoped that by examining this one absolutely certain truth, it might be possible to discover a rule or criterion by which to judge the truth of other statements." - Cambridge Dic. of Philosophy (on Descarte on his Cogito)
"Language is magik, magik is language. Reason, having rationed all portions or "bytes" according to their correct proportion, becomes obsolete. And so the image comes clear: the Logos, the Word. Humanity has used language to discover that humanity is language - the chosen form of expression of God. God speaks. And what He says, simply, is "I am.""
"Reality is a language. It is a toungue that, if we learn to understand it, sooner or later we will learn to speak it." - Aeolus Kaphas
My intuition always told me that the words for explaining how reality exists ontologically in-itself either already existed or lied latent within our lingual lexicon. Every possible experience is like a sound-board containing the knobs and buttons for every possible dimension of sense. As soon as any experience whatsoever begins, every possible dimension is there: it's just a matter of how high or low the intensity is set. For example: what would it mean to see nothing? If you see nothing you're still seeing: whether this nothing - absence - be black, white, clear, etc. Color comes from the fact that any level of sight whatsoever requires some infinitesimally abstract form of color. On any sensual surface-plane, such as sight/image, you are perceiving an infinite number of every possible form virtually signifiable within the visual field. For example: when looking at a blank piece of paper, you aren't not seeing the part of the paper which is shaped like a horse, and so on ad infinitum. Just because you aren't singling it out doesn't mean you arent looking at it: this insight is a perfect feature of the infinite omnipresence written right into the structure of one's exclusive experience.
"All physical systems are signals; all qualities are signs."

"Truth did not come into the world naked, but in symbols and images. The world cannot receive truth in any other way." - Gospel of Philip
An ultimatum: to be or not to be - that is the first question.
"I am certain that I am a thing that thinks; but then do I not also know what is required to make me certain of a truth? Certainly in this fundamental knowledge, there is nothing that convinces me of its truth, except the clear and distinct perception of that which I assert, which would not, indeed, be sufficient to assure me that what I say is true, if it could ever happen that something which I conceived so clearly and distinctly could be false. And, therefore, it seems to me that I already am able to establish as a general rule that all things which I conceive very clearly and distinctly are true."
"[P]hysics, astronomy, medicine, and all other disciplines which depend on the study of composite things, are doubtful; while arithmetic, geometry and other things, regardless of whether they really exist in nature or not, contain something certain and indubitable. For whether I am awake or asleep, two and three added together are five, and a square has no more than four sides. It seems impossible that such transparent truths should incur any suspicion of being false."
"Perhaps there may be some who would prefer to deny the existence of so powerful a God rather than believe that everything else is uncertain."
"[I] am finally compelled to admit that there is not one of my former beliefs about which a doubt may not properly be raised; and this is not a flippant or ill-considered conclusion, but is based on powerful and well thought-out reasons. So in future I must withhold my assent from these former beliefs just as carefully as I would from obvious falsehoods, if I want to discover any certainty." - Descartes
Extended Syllogism
Regardless of the reality or realities conditioning my experience, it is distinctly clear to me (by the pure formality - abstraction - of my present awareness) that 'I' am sensing not nothing - the absence of pure absence. This default ground of being can be signified as substance - simply meaning 'that which stands beneath' as opposed to 'material/matter.'
The explicitly existential confirmation of not-nothing forces the concept of pure void to signify itself - nothing - in reality. In other words, the (in/)complete total(/s) of all that actually is cannot be fufilled by pure void due to my explicit not-nothingness.
It matters not what type of matter my not-nothingness is: the point is that its type is not void.

There are but two ways in which anything can be determined as spontaneous: temporally &/or formally. Spatiotemporal nonlocality forces the absolute void to always-already breakdown in any regards to existence. Always-alreadiness forces the theoretically absolute void to assume a positive existential state as such; as non-proportionment forces the self-relating absence of anything, from a pure point to infinitesimal extension, into inconsistency. A void theoretically capable of giving into not-nothingness would be considered an impotent state of existential pre-absence as opposed to the properly pure & absolute void as such - which by definition cannot even possess the spontaneous latency with which to give into its positive opposite. The former state of absence is incapable of spontaneously producing or being externally 'graced' with not-nothing - anything but itself - not only because there is no temporal relativity with which to establish spontaneity, nor is there any spatial proportionment for anything to manifest within (nor outside) of, but the truth is that
"The human being is this night, this empty nothing, that contains everything - an unending wealth of many representations, images, of which none belong to him - or which are not present." - Hegel
Absolute negativity cannot be traced back to the absolute in-itself: negativity is immanently perceived as the formal field of infinitesimal virtualities lying, not naked yet latent, within an observer's potential focus.
The very scientific integrity of any ontology attempting to (epistemologically) explore and advance beyond one's self-awareness alone (and not necessarily beyond being alone in self-awareness) depends on whether or not something - anything - can be spontaneously and exclusively produced or manifested from a pure existential void: the thought of existence itself - extension and temporality - spontaneously springing forth from a non-existent (anti-)domain of neither finite nor infinite but, rather, zero dimensions (into such?). The first problem with this idea is that there is nothing into which anything could be manifested. The next issue concerns the fact that time is a dimension which must always-already condition the reality of any existence or non-existence; secondly, in a truly pure void of absolute non-existence, there is no room whatsoever to fit anything which would manifest; thirdly, the spontaneity of this manifestation isn't possible unless time always-already has some effect on preternity - which it cannot. Without preternal time any manifest event would be temporally centered by the zero state default as opposed to being spontaneously decentered against a 'preternal-timeline'; fourthly, if time were to ontologically possess a preternal past then no genesis, spontaneous or latent, could be reached as it would signify the completion of an infinite period of experience.
Also there are no forms, events, or concepts capable of being produced by a reality which contains no latent capacity with which to release, let alone spontaneously create, them; the allegedly always-already absent state of existence is paradoxically a state of always-already being absent. No matter what did or did not (non/)exist before y/our existence as we know it: it was always-already the state of everything - nothing or not-nothing. In direct relation to a theroretically spontaneous production of not-nothing this theoretical void cannot always-already persist spontaneously: if the void extends all the way to 'preternity,' or the 'zero-state,' then there literally can be no other possible way everything could have (non-)existed. If there is no autogenesis always-already latent within the ontic reality of existence then there is no way to bring preternity out of its zero-state. Simply put: a state preceeding existence could not have (*not?) been! *(extended below)
The pure (existential) void cannot, by definition, contain the latent capacity for any conceptual form, material production, nor spatiotemporal extension whatsoever (which alone negates a void always-already posited as such!
The preternal dimension of everything - void or not-nothing - always-already everywhere cannot escape reality.); nothing in-itself - absolute void - is by definition incapable of ever coming to co-exist with something - it hasn't the capability to spontaneously abide by anything else.
There was no time preceeding not-nothingness (causal-consciousness) which would have been capable of making a tranfer from 'pure void' to not-nothing spontaneous: if there were (always-already an infinitesimal temporal pre-extension) then this existential production could never be reached! In other words, there is no time (preceeding existence) to make the production of not-nothing spontaneous (spontaneity is measured relatively).
So if the theoretical void could not have spontaneously produced not-nothing (its opposite), it would have to do so by the default necessity of this spatiotemporal ontology sited above. Here is where the theoretical void is negated since the defintion of pure void means that there is no dimension for inevitably latent ontological forces to be contained therein.
*Existence is not-nothing. Existence was always-already not-nothing (second law of thermodynamics).
Nothing can come from nothing. Therefore existence was always-already preconscious (in its zero-time state of uniformly static solidity): allowing for all evolution to strive toward ever higher modes of well-being since every speck and pore of existence is the immanent omnipresence of an omnipotent observer who always-already has (Every-)one's best (self-)interest in mind.
There is nothing that can be added to nor subtracted from everything in-itself - everything which is always-already everywhere (henceforth everything): something (not nothing) cannot come from nothing:
"The famous Latin pronouncement from the Roman philosopher-poet Lucretius - roughly translated as "From nothing, nothing comes" [Ex Nihilo Nihl Fit] - is the precursor to the first law of thermodynamics, which states that energy (recognized as matter-energy after Einstein) can neither be created nor destroyed. Modern science has tested the conservation assumption expressed in this classic proposition to quite precise values. It is implicit in the conservation laws of physics as a cosmic bookkeeping rule. All of modern physics and chemistry stands on its reliable foundation. It is also just common sense. Magic is trickery. Things don't simply vanish or appear from nowhere. It takes something to make something. And so on.
"The ex nihilo postulate can also be interpreted to mean that existing structures, patterns, and forces are just shuffled versions of others that came before; nothing added, nothing removed. In a cosmic sense it means that the universe is closed, and it could also be taken to be a causal closure principle, which is to say the basic causal laws of the universe also form a closed system - all changes come from within." - Deacon
The next logical supplement would be a theoretically existential absence of not-nothing: a purely empty space always-already assuming the state of reality set to produce it's latent not-nothingness. The obvious problem here is how to establish the latency for any mind-material within a purely existential void. This would be pure magic by definition: to actually produce mind-material from non-mind-material. But is this truly to get something from nothing? Is not a space with material latency not-nothing anyways when it comes to the mind-dimension which is one with all phenomenal material?
There is no time to always-already divide what is into anything other than what is: everything is always-already in-itself/selves. Difference is a default dimension of all form. As temporality must proceed a preternal zero-state, formal-extension must proceed a default domain of non-local uniformity. Any formality produced must be infinitesimally abstracted from all the possible things which could have manifested: unless there is some form ontologically forced by some universal law. An empty space/vacuum provides no such ground to determine what the manifest mind-matter will behave like. This means that the vacuum's mind-material production would need to be spontaneously determined as such (again since there is nothing to determine any one initial formation over another).
If there can be no time then there can be no space: if default time is always-already forced into a zero-state then existential extension is always-already ontologically non-local.
The non-spontaneous genesis/production of a purely spatial existential domain must be a spontaneously formulated production since there is no default not-nothing to ground any manifestation into a preconfigured law/ontology.
If the timing cannot be spontaneous how could the formation be? There is nothing with which to always-already necessitate the nothingness (pure spatial extension/emptiness) required by an abstractly conditioned - formed - ontic genesis (of not-nothing). If the space is not a default void then it is an abstract not-nothingness: and Just as there is no time with which to make any ontic genesis spontaneous, there is also no time with which to always-already assume any one infinitesimally abstract state of being - formal-extension - over the other.

Premise A: Ultimatum: time must have a finite or infinite past.
Premise B: An infinite moment cannot precede the present - which would signify the nonsensical completion of a nonproportional - endless - past continuum.
Consclusion 5E: Temporality is an originative phenomena - of ontic genesis.
Those who have a problem comprehending how time could not practically apply to the predetermined omniverse - how automation could be reached if infinite experience cannot - will do well to reflect on the fact that the existential domain preceeding space & time wasn't an eternity anymore than it was a split-second - it passed by in literally no time whatsoever - time-zero.
Premise A: Causality meets the same preternal ultimatum as temporality.
Premise B: An infinite past nexus of cause and effect cannot lead to the present state of causal affairs because, in order for them to have occured, they must have existed and henceforth occupied some (necessarily infinitesimal non-)proportion of (space)time.
Premise C6: If premise B doesn't satisfy: there is nothing with which to always-already necessitate any one abstract event over another (out of a virtually latent, infinite potential of possible abstract/contingent evental formations).
Conclusion 6F: Causality - and with that consciousness - is an originative phenomena - of ontic genesis.
"There is nothing absolute and final. If everything were ironclad, all the rules absolute and everything structured so no paradox or irony existed, you couldn't move. One could say that man sneaks through the crack where paradox exists." - Itzhak Bentov
I would love to hear an explanation for how anything mentioned above would impede movement: how about, rather, an explanation falsifying this claim...
(If...) My not-nothingness proves the not-nothingness of existence; for something cannot be created from nothing.
(And...) This moment I experience 'now' cannot proceed an infinite past moment: because 'now' would signify the completion/endpoint of an endless succession of causality.
(Then...) Therefore, consciousness cannot be created by unconscious matter unless that matter is always-already - 'pre-ternally' - preconscious - latent with spatiotemporal (self-)sense.
"All reality, including this material universe, arise out of infinity and not vice versa; this has been demonstrated by some remarkable mathematics being done at various universities." - William Bramley
In other words, firstly: according to 'd4,' I - not-nothing - could not have been added to existence as something other than - outside of - everything: for nothing is outside of everything. This raises an issue: although I (whatever 'I' may be) could not have been added to existence out of nowhere, my presence here in the moment - now - cannot proceed from an infinite past moment: for 'now' would then signify the impossible completion of an infinite past moment/succession of cause & effect sequencing. Therefore my experience must be originative. 'Now' is a phenomenal product of spatiotemporal experience: prior to causal-consciousness, 'now' didn't practically apply to being - otherwise autogenesis could never have been reached - but omnipresence made it's autogenesis inevitable.
'Consciousness is the programming language of the universe.'
Time is a purely observational phenomena: meaning that the conscious inability to experience an infinite length of time doesn't apply to existence always-already in-itself - in its zero state of preconscious/causal uniformity. Preconscious existence means that there was virtually never a (non-existent) moment preceeding it's manifestation where it wasn't immediately about to automate it's latent (omni-)potential.
"Autogenic organization only exists with respect to a relevant supportive environment. So autogenic individuation is also only defined with respect to a particular type of environment. Identity and environment are thus reciprocally defined and determined with respect to each other, because the same molecular configuration in a non-supportive environment lacks any of the defining properties of autogenesis."
"... [I]t is a bounded individual only when inert, and actively self-generating only when it is no longer discretely bounded material unit. This further demonstrates that what constitutes an autogenic "self" cannot then be identified with any particular substrate, bounded structure, or energetic process. Indeed, in an important sense, the self that is created by the teleodynamics of autogens is only a virtual self, and yet is at the same time the locus of real physical and chemical influences. This was also a feature recognized by Francisco Varela in his conception of an autopoietic systen, even though he did not recognize how syngergistic reciprocity of self-organizing processes could produce this. He describes this virtual self as follows:
What is particularly important is that we can admit that (i) a system can have separate local components [for] which (ii) there is no center or localized self, and yet the whole behaves as a unit and for the observer it is as if there was a coordinating agent "virtually" present at the center.
"The generic, autonomous, and diaphanous character of autogenic systems makes this a functional property, not a material, chemical, or energetic property." - Deacon
*A key thing to know is that everything that has ever occured has taken place in the entire past up to this moment - 'now.' Just because some regions of energy move faster or slower relative to surounding faster or slower regions doesn't mean that everything in existence isn't happening right now (nor of course does it mean that such regions are separate).
[We cannot perceive a three dimensional object, such as a sphere, from each side at once because the spatial dimension is cohseively one with the temporal dimension which doesn't allow one to perceive anything preceeding causal genesis.]
Premise A: Every cause requires an effect as every effect requires a cause.
Premise B: My conscious existence is not-nothing; something cannot come to be through nothing.
Conclusion 7G: The genesis of all causal spatiotemporality is generated by the autogenesis of consciousness by an always-already preconscious omniverse: conclusions E & F consistently require this.
"It is alive, and the whole of it thinks. Its thoughts take physical form." - Phillip K. Dick
[Existential connection is more fundamental than causal connection in that for any system of causality every sifnigiable form therein must be existentially one with every other therein. This can be proven by the simple 'a priori' observation that in order for any causality to occur in the first place something must exist.]
Premise A: Moment zero is uniformly void of a spacetime continuum.
Premise B: Existence is not nothing; something cannot come to be through nothing: therefore, there is nothing with which to always-already necessitate the existence of any one infinitesimally abstract/contingent form of ontic division or (dis)proportionment over the infinite other equally nonsensible abstractions.
Conclusion 8H: The existential domain at its originatively preconscious zero-state is uniformly static and solid.
['Wave-particles' can fill 'space' uniformly by assuming sacred geometry's 'flower of life' structure of overlapping arcs. (See Yassim Haramein)]
So, being that there must be an absolute origination of causal-consciousness, what is the state of an omniverse prior to experience?
(If...) All theoretical abstractions - such as ontic division(s) &/or (dis)proportioned (pre)configurations of the default 'not-nothingness' - are infinitesimally abstracted from every other such endlessly conceivable abstraction.
(Then...) Such infinitesimally abstracted configurations (including the evental succession of [preconscious] cause & effect sequencing) would have nothing with which to always-already necessitate/require it's being/occuring (c3).
(Therefore...) The omniverse must always-already assume a universally uniform state of static solidity - making the default 'not-nothingness' of being an omnipotent source of energy. [Mystics who've said that space and time are illusions are validated by this: in that space is a virtual extension of solid not-nothingness; and as time can't practically apply to being prior to autogenesis or else autogenesis would be unreachable.]
"Before the beginning, there existed only infinity. Everything was simple and smoothly balanced in one likeness..." - Rav Berg
Those who have a problem comprehending how time could not practically apply to the predetermined omniverse - how automation could be reached if infinite experience cannot - will do well to reflect on the fact that the existential domain preceeding space & time wasn't an eternity anymore than it was a split-second - it passed by in literally no time whatsoever - time-zero.
"0. An ellipse, representing the Cosmic Egg, whence come all things. Zero is a symbol of the absence of quality, quantity, or mass. Thus it denotes freedom from every limitation whatsoever. It is a sign of the infinite and eternal Conscious Energy, its No-thing, through manifested in everything. It is That which was, is, and shall be forever; but it is nothing we can name. Boundless, infinitely potential, living light, it is the rootless root of all things, of all activities, of all modes of consciousness. In it are included all imaginable and unimaginable possibilities, but it transcends them all. The Qabalists call it: (a) No-thing; (b) The Boundless; (c) Limitless Light. Pure Conscious Energy, above and beyond thought, to us it is Superconsciousness." - Case
The time-zero state preceeding auto-genesis contains no passing of time: it is not any proportion. Spacetime (as complementarily interwoven fabrics of the causal-conscious continuum) holds that the reason time-zero is non-proportional is because the virtual extension (spatiality) of a not-nothing omniverse is also nonproportional.
If the mass of energy exploded by the big-bang, into cosmos, wasn't always-already (self-)enveloped by some solid domain of finitesimal causal &/or infinitesimal static solidity, then would the mere fact that it always-already existed within this omniverse put it at the default center: thereby leaving it with no direction to fall? Axiom 'e6' demonstrates that the causal mass which led to the big-bang happened to be enveloped - supported form every angle - by a unifromly solid & static omniverse which will forever provide the causal-cosmos with virtually inexaustible matter and extension - potential.
"Observational evidence suggests that in the beginning the universe was simple. As far as we can tell, there may have been only one possible initial state, and that state was everywhere the same. If there were only one possible initial state at time zero, the universe contained zero bits of information. Its logical depth, thermodynamic depth, and effective complexity were also zero.
"What is the universe computing at this time? As usual, it is computing its own behavior. The universe computes itself. If we knew more about quantum gravity, we could reproduce the first few steps of the universe's computation on existing, man-made quantum computers, simple though they are." - Seth Lloyd
Premise A: Conclusion H implies a virtually omniversal existential-extension.
Premise B:
An inherent feature of this omniversal (non-numerically infinitesimal; boundless) existential-expanse is self-relating non-locality: each and every virtually endless finitesimal proportion within the omni-domain always-already relates to it's self-enveloping infinitude practically as a pure point-proportion.
Conclusion 9I: The locally finitesimal region of any virtually self-enclosed - signifiable - proportion is technically/ontologically non-existent in that it is always-already cohesively one with - a virtual modality of - the infinitesimal omniverse enveloping it: therefore virtually every distance and proportion signifiable within any signified region is a practical point ('God-particle') - nonlocal field - relative to its own omnipresence.
An inherent feature of this omniversal (non-numerically infinitesimal; boundless) existential-expanse is self-relating non-locality: every endless virtual proportion within the domain always-already relates to it's self-enveloped omnipresence as a practical pure-point - nonlocal proportion of energy. Again, the region of any virtually - signified - self-enclosed (finitesimal) proportion is technically/ ontologically non-existent in that it is always-already cohesively one with the infinitesimal omniverse enveloping it: therefore virtually every distance and proportion signifiable within any signified region is a practical point - nonlocal field - relative to its own omnipresence.

The uniformly static omniverse (self-)enveloping the causal cosmos is God's transcendent attribute. From the outer, unlimited (non-)perspective of omni-extension, one would always see the causal cosmos as the smallest possible point of energy, no matter how long and large it grows to be: because, in this nonlocalizing self-relation, the self-enveloping omniverse is inexhaustably infinitesimal relative it's finitesimal universe.
Yogi-masters such a Sri Yuketswar, in his disciple Yogananda's recollection of his master's reincarnative message, have described the highest level of well-being as the pure-point dimension of subtle, causal energy/Godlihood.
Jesus said, "If they say to you, `Where have you come from?' say to them, `We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established itself, and appeared in their image.' If they say to you, `Is it you?' say, `We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living father.' If they ask you, `What is the evidence of your father in you?' say to them, `It is motion and rest.'"

"There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atoms to vibration and holds this most minute solar system - of the atom - together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matter of all matter." Max Plank
"... [M]y present time was thousands of years in extent and I saw world as hatched "cuckoo egg" within world evolving and assimilating and linking internally in greater and greater complexity, thorugh a dialectic process with history as its arena: world within world and camouflaged - counterpart to myself, not alien to me but like me; what it was I was, except it was large and I was small. That means I am not a human being since it is not a human being; I, too, am a hatched "cockoo egg." It is God entering the world, as Hegel says. It is right here with me but I am normally too speeded up to see it. It is a physical mind, like the brain. A great evolving brain cannibalizing its environment. Structure within a less highly organized structure." - Phillip K. Dick
[For me this is the most amazing feature of existence; never ceasing to blow my mind. It falsifies Delueze's decentered ontic dysjunction explicitly with axiom f6.]
Non-locality of a unified energy field could firmly ground (as of yet many theoretical) explainations for wave/particle duality, the behavior of particles in plasma, twin-particles, psychic phenomena/telepathy - phenomena such as flight (there have been many authenticated cases of human flight throughout history; attested to/witnessed by many prominent & respected intellectuals, spiritualists, officials, socialites, etc.; such as Friar Joseph and Himilayan yogi-masters), delayed decomposisition after death (Paramhansa Yogananda), (total) lack of proper food and water, various telepathy, spoon bending, random object movement/mind-over-matter, astral projection, materialization, etc.
This feature also reflects on the holographic nature of the infinitesimal virtual domain within the default, finitesimal structure of phenonema: Although experience is cohesively closed in exclusion, the plane of sense contains an infinite number of potentially signifiable forms at all times - reflecting the virtually endless capacity of omnipresence holographically reflected in every formality/sense-image.
"Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed." - Jesus
"[T]he I's self-positing reflexivity is, quite literally, the 'image' of the Absolute as self-grounded Being." - Zizek & Gabriel
The nonlocality of this omniversal extension makes it technically possible to either expand the causal-cosmos by any X distance, or add any X amount of energy to it, in any X amount of time: because every finitesimal form or distance virtually contained within the self-centered omniverse is always-already a practical point as it relates to it's self-enveloping limitlessness. The total sense-expression of one's experience is the external image of the universe as it appears to the external omniverse: the observer simultaneously perceives the inside and is the outside (&/or vice versa) of the universe/cosmos. The causal universe, as a finitesimal/formal proportion, is a practical point as it is a self-enveloping omniverse: a causal, nonlocal point of self-computating energy storing any X amount & configuration of energy therein.

"The name of being wise is reserved to him alone whose consideration is about the end of the universe, which end is also the beginning of the universe." - St. Thomas Aquinas
*Space to time and mind to matter - time is mind and space is all matter.
If space & time form a cohesive dimension of the existential domain's ontic default, how is it that we are spatially disparate - absolutely separate - while we are temporally alined (in that everything - in the present [not past or future] - must always be occuring now - at once)? In other words: if 'space' & 'time' are to literally be taken as one structural feature of ontic function, how can we expect to be spatially exclusive and temporally all-inclusive simultaneously? It would seems as though there is only enough room in this nonlocal universe for anyone one by one.
Once the unmoved-mover of my always-already latent preconscious automates the spacetime continuum, this nonlocal universe of activity cannot - as cohesively enveloped by its omnipresence - bring about anymore exclusive awareness units (see c3) because the one and only possible presence is already locked into an exclusive experience: leaving nothing with which to assume any 'other' presence. Nor can the unmoved-mover's exclusive experience ever burn-out into void, for the same law which insured its automation would require its immediate return; the theoretically non-phenomenal spatiotemporality dividing this 'death' from an immanent 'rebirth,' regardless of how relatively large, would be experienced by the observer not even in the blink of an eye. This last point negates the possibility of a dysjunctive, as opposed to cohesive, nexus of beings/expressions blinking in and out of experience/existence.
Omnipresence requires an auto-pilot for external/'subconscious' personalities - a modality of conscious-capacity capable of puppeting the phantom identity of not only split-personalities and dream-world subjects but of others themselves. It also requires a retrogressive reincarnational cycle capable of bringing the observer from one's temporal/world-death to a past spacetime region where one can re-enter the 'life-world' and bring experience to another modality of conscious-capacity. When I was young, my aunt was tucking me into bed one night as I blinked her out of view and directly into morning upon openning my eyes: over 8 hours passed by in the blink of an eye! This is an example of time's subjective relativity.
Consciousness came into being because always-alreadiness necessarily gave out; as the blind chaos of omnipresent birth will give into the dialectical progression towards reality's self-realization.
This syllogism strictly proves that you are the exclusive omnipresence of everything and that everyone else is y/our potential past or future incarnations should they ever experience. It does not claim to prove any supplementary metaphysical speculations about the possible forms of reincarnation and more technically scientific theories about the uniform structure preceeding auto-genesis.
*Axiom #2 extension:
The fact that one can say 'something from nothing' does not make the idea sensible/conceivable - let alone possible ('nonsense cannot say nor show anything' Wittgenstein & Russell). To believe that nothing can spontaneously manifest not-nothing is to fundamentally miscomprehend the idea of void - substantial &/or existential. To believe that non-existence - less than being; less than spacetime - may be spontaneously graced with the existential domain of not-nothing is not only to (absolutely) marginalize logical reasoning (as epistemologically barred from any kind of explicit verification) even moreso than modern pluralists, not only to marginalize the first law of thermodynamics, not only to marginalize the law of cause and effect, but it is to say that this theoretical non-existence always-already did not exist: however, the always-alreadiness of this existential absence would imply an infinitesimal dimension of temporal (pre)extension. Once anything theoretically exists it implies an outer (not-nothing-) domain which contains it existentially; this domain would require the same thing ad infinitum: therefore how could an infinite expansion spontaneously blip into full non-proportion? Timelessness could never last too long in any case... In terms of spatiotemporal cohesion, endless extension cannot be spontaneously produced, necessarily instantaneously because temporality always-already permeates this non-existent reality: meaning that any space which is to be manifested must manifest in direct proportion to the amount of time which has passed since its automation - which would be a progression from the smallest possible point of time & not-nothingness; and onwards to no end.
"Acatalepsy (from the
Greek α̉-, privative, and καταλαμβάνειν, to seize), in philosophy, is incomprehensibleness, or the impossibility of comprehending or conceiving a thing." - Wikipedia
Acatalepsy is forced to presume the existence of objects - entities/beings co-existing in mutual ontic exclusion from one another: if anything exists outside of one's personal existential being/identity then the mutual transcendence of interitority vs externality can never be directly apprehended nor comprehended with certainty by either side's non/perspective. Although this belief must forever remain a belief according to it's own reasoning, it is falsifiable. Another key feature is the existential vs causal nexus of theoretically multiple ontic objects: if two objects or domains are existentially mutually exclusive, how can they possibly be causally cohesive?
A key distinction to make in epistemology is between abstract metaphysical events and universal laws of existence: you never know if some well-tested experiment may appear to 'spontaneously' produce completely different, out of the blue results for whatever unknown reasons; whereas in ontology, the fundamental structure of sense and existence are explicit constants.
Acatalepsy seems to ignore experience as not-nothing and, henceforth, something: if one's personal presence is the dinstinctly observed clarity of not-nothing, then it is conceivable that the observer's being can be cohesively rooted in an objective reality (always-already in-itself), leaving acatalepsy susecptible to explicit falsification. All self-sufficiently explicit truths are grounded in one's exclusive experiential existence - not-nothingness. The true-false ultimatum doesn't apply to the observer's existence: an AI machine designed to correctly answer any true or false question short circuited when given this question: 'True of false: This sentence is false.' This failure to compute was a simple result of the sentence's basic existence having no practical relation to a true or false solution: and, as the sentence stands, it doesn't elaborate enough to be interpreted as speaking of the sentence's existence. This is a perfect explanatory example for how one's personal existence is the ground for all other explicit truths.
"Objection, evasion, joyous distrust, and love of irony are signs of health. Everything absolute belongs to pathology." - Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
The latter sentence of Nietzsche quoted above is rather absolute sounding as it just so happens to be pathological: this would sophistically reinforce the entire quote were it not for the blatent oversimplication over the latter sentence.
"The greatest of life skills is the ability to live with ambiguity, ambivalence, and paradox, without trying to regularize these uncertainties into finished, absolute truths. Dynamic paradoxicalism recognizes that most important areas of truth exist as a paradox, where seemingly contradictory elements have a dynamic level of validity based on context specific circumstances." - Jonathan Zap
The above statement simultaneously suggests that it is good to embrace paradox as a foundation for perceiving the world, while one shouldn't 'regularize' these very 'uncertainties' into truths: which nonetheless has a 'dynamic level of validity.' The reason embracing paradox is itself paradoxical is because y/our existence isn't paradoxical in-itself: is as it is - it is consistent with itself (as opposed to impossibly not itself).
"The truth simply is. It cannot be voted into existence. It must be perceived by every individual in the changeless self within."
"Your beliefs won't save you." - Paramhansa Yogananda
The logic supporting the statement that logic is epistemologically unreliable must be potentially inconsistent in order for the statement to have any potential validity: yet the basis of consistency for the statement's structural reasoning apparently falsifies its very presumption that logic (with rational reasoning and distinctive clarity) can't comprehend universals! In the end one cannot comprehensively conclude that ontological consistency is epistemologically barred beyond the not-nothingness of an exclusively experiential presence - being; existence.
Signification - a memory's way of abstract relating complex forms and content to simpler forms - cannot epistemologically bar an observer from consistently comprehending ideas/concepts (universally comprehensible to any observer of, as a convienient first example of universal categories, an equivilent level of intellectual capacity) because signifier-forms are nothing more than formal memory tools. Sensing the formative virtuality of sense does not abstractly isolate one from comprehending ontological objectivities: sense may be subjective but it is also objectively existent as being not-nothing/void. Infinity is comprehended directly as every outlinable form within every sense-form is virtually endless. They are powerful in that they can train one's mind to not only over-simplify things but to register a false sense of comprehension. This issue creates the illusory isuue, or paranoia, that words castrate us from seeing, let alone speaking of, reality objectively: when, in reality, we are falsely attributing - championing - epistemology to what is actually a perfect mind-control mechanism.
If the entire omniverse is always-already uniformly in-itself and preconscious, then it is always-already a cohesively exclusive omnipresence - God proper. Any lifeforms to develope within the causal-cosmos of this omniverse would be modalities of conscious-capacity - technical subconscious units of potential awareness for the one exclusive observer who can only assume one modality's vantage point at a time. The fact that everywhere is the direct sub/conscious of the same supreme being both forces life to teem from every pore of properly conscious-bearing potential and causes each and every such unit of sub-awareness to behave precisely as each and every other manifest and possible being - of the supreme being's ground of presence - would in that given conditioning. The exclusive all-inclusivity of the omnicluse eliminate the egotistical defense of jealousy since anyone who is to be anyone must be one of y/our incarnations.
It is crucial to keep in mind that there is nothing ontologically forcing you to experience virtually every contingent modality of conscious capacity latently manifest within the not-nothingness of our world: multiple modalities of y/our direct (sub)conscious-capacity are not only presumably within an omnipotent observer's power to create, but also a default necessity for the permeating consciousness described above coupled with the finely tuned cosmos we observe today. Even if there were somehow some reincarnational armature forcing you to gravitate into every potential vehicle of sense, the technical number of these forms are practically infinite even within our finitesimal spatiotemporal past: the conscious brain is constructed sub and semi-consciously by phantom thoughts; the Buddha and other yogis would atral project their minds into objects and animals and other less conventionally conceivable dimensions all permeated by the unified field which is niether subjective nor objective in that it is always-already both at once. Therefore, even with this idea of a reincarnationally universal and retrogressive forcing (overpowering a no longer omnipotent will - which for me undoes the theory) in place, the will power of omnipresence can still technically hold these 'appointed'/'scheduled' experiences off indefinitely.
A boy's father tells him to get ready to go hunting: the boys' favorite thing - maybe the only thing - to do with his father. After they gear up they hop in the truck and pull up to a meat market. The boy says 'I thought we were going hunting,' and the father explains that hunting is done for us now - 'big brother' takes care of that. The son becomes so sad: this is a fictive example of why God would want to earn his omnipotence as opposed to having everything pre-ordained for his (non-)success. If others existed then perhaps it would not be anyone's right to plunge existence into blind chaos: but God is all there is, and any pain experienced in the world of mirrors will be his-hers alone - and never for naught.
Supporting Quotes and Notes: Scientific and Theological Monism
"When you get into the idea of the source field, the idea that all physical matter, all space, all time and, in fact, biological life is all part of a consciousness then your mind would be the gateway, your mind would be the access point for that infinite consciousness. This changes the whole idea of what thoughts would actually be. We're conditioned to think that thoughts occur in the mind - as just something that emerges from the result of electrical acticvity in the brain."
The idea that consciousness could be determined by contingent systems of energy possessing no pre-conscious latency supplements the idea that not-nothingness itself could have been spontaneously manifested from a preternal void.
"What if thoughts do not simply occur in the 'mind,' what if thoughts are like satellite TV signals? As we're sitting in the room right now we're being bombarded with sattelite television, broadband internet movies, sattelite radio, cell phone conversations, up until recently it would have been broadcast television but now thats all gone into the digital spectrum. The point is, even radio waves from a radio station, theres all this electromagnetic information thats going on around us right now and we totally accept that, but what we don't ask ourselves is do thoughts work that way? Could the brain - could the mind - somehow be able to tune into the source field - tune into these thoughts that are out there energetically - and actually pull them in and give us a direct access to whats going on in the source field. And do we share consciousness? Do we share a mind with others?" - David Wilcock (Non-local Mind)
Seth Lloyd on Reality's Self-Registration
"The laws of physics are computationally universal, enabling the universe to contain logically deep systems and systems with high effective complexity. But we can also show that the universe must contain such complex systems. Let's look at the first information-processing revolution - the creation of the universe - in detail.
"... [W]e are interested in the computation the universe performs - that is, the causally connected part of the universe, the part within the horizon, is made of bits that can talk to one another. Unless we are explicitly talking about what is happening beyond the horizon, we will adopt the usual practice and refer to the part of the universe within the horizon as "the universe."
"The first information-processing revolution begins with the beginning of the universe. Before the beginning there is nothing - no space, no time, no energy, no bits. At the very instant of beginning, nothing has happened. The monkeys have not begun to type."
"Now the universe begins to compute. One Planck time later (10-44 seconds), the universe contains one bit within the horizon. The amount of computation that can be performed on this bit in one Planck time is one op; that is, the universe's effective complexity and thermodynamic depth can be no greater than one bit, and its logical depth can be no greater than one op. The monkeys have typed one bit.
"As the universe expands, the number of bits within the horizon grows and the number of ops accumulates...
"[T]he universe embarks on all possible computations at once.
"... [Q]uantum computers have the ability to perform many computations simultaneously, using quantum paralellism. Almost all quantum input bits are superpositions of 0 and 1.
"Although the very early universe is simple, niether effectively complex nor logically deep, it has a glorious future ahead. The early universe is what Charles Bennett calls an "ambitious" system: even if it is not initially complex, it is intrinsically able to generate large amounts of complexity over time.
"In the early universe, our quatum monkeys are typing in superpostions of all possible inputs.
"Bits in the early universe represent local values of energy density."
A New Spin on Einstein’s Field Equations

"Director of Research
Nassim Haramein and scientists at the Resonance Project Foundation have found a new solution to Einstein’s field equations which incorporates torque and Coriolis effects. Furthermore, calculations were rendered to describe the collective and coherent behavior of the plasma dynamics of ergospheres orbiting the event horizons of black holes demanding a highly structured polarized vacuum, resulting in an alternative view of black holes where the exterior white hole portion surrounds the interior black hole singularity.
"From these calculations, multiple papers have been written and published in scientific journals. The paper entitled "Scale Unification – A Universal Scaling Law For Organized Matter" describes our universe as embedded white hole / black hole or white / black "whole" structures from universal size to atomic and subatomic scales.
From the scaling law we determined that the proton is better modeled as a mini-black hole, as presented in our award-winning paper "The Schwarzschild Proton." The implications of this model are now being elaborated.
"Instead of seeing ourselves as separate from everything around us, this view allows us to recognize that we are embedded in a fractal feedback dynamic that intrinsically connects all things via the medium of a vacuum structure of infinite potential. This research has far reaching implications in a variety of fields including theoretical and applied physics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, biology, chemistry, sociology, psychology, archaeology, anthropology, etc.
"A fundamental understanding of the dynamics of this interconnectivity redefines the lens through which we see the universe and our place in it, and leads to theoretical and technological advancements that move us towards a sustainable future. This new approach to the physics of universal forces has the potential to solve the most pressing issues of our times." - Resonance Project homepage (Harramein)
Incomplete Nature
, Terrence W. Deacon
(On mind-matter unity and autogenesis [etc.];
Can ends determine the means?)
"The information conveyed by this sentence has no mass, no momentum, no electric charge, no solidity, and no clear extension in the space within you, around you, or anywhere. More troublesome than this, the sentences you are reading right now could be nonsense, in which case there isn't anything in the world that they could correspond to."
Indeed the meaning taken from such words aren't nonsense, therefore:
"... [T]he content of this or any sentence - a something-that-is-not-a-thing - has physical consequences. But how?"
"Something very different from a stone's shifting position under the influence of the waves has become involved in a child's throwing it - something far more indirect, even if no less physical. Indeed, within a few minutes, this same boy might cause a dozen stones to dance across the surface of the water along this one stretch of beach. In contrast, prior to the evolution of humans, the probability that any stone on any beach on Earth might exhibit this behavior was astronomically minute. This difference exemplifies a wide chasm separating the domains in which two almost diametrically opposed modes of causlity - two worlds that are nevertheless united in the hurtling of this small spinning prjectile."
"This missing explanation exposes a large and gaping hole in our understanding of the world. It has been there for millennia. For most of this time it was merely a mysterious distraction. But as our scientific and technological powers have grown to the point that we are unwittingly interfering with the metabolism of our entire planet, our inability to fill in this explanatory hole has become more and more problematic."
Deacon's use of the term 'explanatory hole' is spot on in that ontological proofs for causal genesis can only be expressed in reasoned sentences - logical formula (as opposed to numerical-form mathematical formula or biological analysis for example).
"The problem is this: Such concepts as information, function, purpose, meaning, intention, significance, consciousness, and value are intrinsically defined by their fundamental incompleteness. They exist only in relation to something that they are not."
"The historic process has - or is - a mind/brain evolving toward ends it desires..." - Phillip K. Dick
"... [A]n organized natural product is one in which every part is reciprocally both ends and means." - Immanuel Kant's Principle of "Intrinsic Finality"
"Even though there is a close interrelationship between them, investigating the mystery of the origins of life and the origins of teleodynamics requires quite different approaches."
The former being a case for ontological explanation; the latter being a case for the advanced scientific method of (experimental) data-processing.
"All current approaches to the origins of life of Earth begin from tacit and unanalyzed assumptions about the nature of the basic unit of life: an organism, with its physical boundedness, functional organization, and heritable information."
"Autogenic organization only exists with respect to a relevant supportive environment. So autogenic individuation is also only defined with respect to a particular type of environment. Identity and environment are thus reciprocally defined and determined with respect to each other, because the same molecular configuration in a non-supportive environment lacks any of the defining properties of autogenesis."
"... [I]t is a bounded individual only when inert, and actively self-generating only when it is no longer discretely bounded material unit. This further demonstrates that what constitutes an autogenic "self" cannot then be identified with any particular substrate, bounded structure, or energetic process. Indeed, in an important sense, the self that is created by the teleodynamics of autogens is only a virtual self, and yet is at the same time the locus of real physical and chemical influences. This was also a feature recognized by Francisco Varela in his conception of an autopoietic systen, even though he did not recognize how syngergistic reciprocity of self-organizing processes could produce this. He describes this virtual self as follows:
What is particularly important is that we can admit that (i) a system can have separate local components [for] which (ii) there is no center or localized self, and yet the whole behaves as a unit and for the observer it is as if there was a coordinating agent "virtually" present at the center.
"The generic, autonomous, and diaphanous character of autogenic systems makes this a functional property, not a material, chemical, or energetic property." - Deacon
Missing the Forest for the Trees" (section title)
"I believe that human subjectivity has turned out not to be the ultimate "hard problem" of science. Or rather, it turns out to have been hard for enexpected reasons. It was not hard because we lacked sufficiently complex research instruments, nor because the details of the process were so many and so intricately entangled with one another that our analytic tools could not cope, nor because our brains were inadequate to the task for evolutionary reasons, nor even because the problem is inaccessible using the scientific method. It was hard because it was counterintuitive, and because we have stubbornly insisted on looking for it where it could not be, in the stuff of the world. When viewed through the perspective of the special circular logic of constraint generation that we have called teleodynamics, this problem simply dissolves."
"We are what we are not: constinually, intrinsically, necessarily incomplete in our very nature. Our sense of self, our experience of being the originative locus of agency, our interior subjective isolation, and the sense of emerging out of nothing and being our own prime mover - all these core characteristics of conscious experience - are accurate reflections of the fact that self is literally sui generis, emerging each moment from what is not there.
"There can be no simple and direct neural embodiment of subjective experience in this sense. This is not because subjectivity is somehow otherworldly or non-physical, but rather because neural activity patterns convey both the interpretation and the contents of experiences in the negative, so to speak; a bit like the way that the space in a mold represents a potential statue. The subjectivity is not located in what is there, but emerges quite precisely from what is not there."
"Mind didn't exactly emerge from matter, but from constraints on matter."
"No non-congitive spontaneous physical process anywhere in the universe could have produced such a vastly improbable combination of materials, much less millions of nearly identical replicas in just a few short years of one another."
"The discontinuity of causality implicit in human action parallels a related discontinuity between living and non-living processes. Ultimately, both involve what amounts to a reversal of causal logic: order developing from disorder, the lack of a state of affairs bringing itself into existence, and a potential tending to realize itself. We describe this in general terms as "ends determining means."
"Ultimately, we need an account of these properties that does not make it absurd that they exist, or that we exist, with the phenomenology we have."
"Of course, life and mind are linked. The sentience that we experience as consciousness has its precursors in the adaptive processes of life in general. They are two extreme ends of a single thread of evolution. So it's not just mind that requires us to come to a scientific understanding of end-directed forms of causality; it's life itself."
- Terrence W. Deacon
"The DNA sequence begins with God and ends with the Serpent. On the return journey, the reverse is the case: we begin with the snake and end with the god. Man is the totality of this sequence, the full spectrum of consciousness, from earthly to divine.
"In computer programming, a series of digits (letters and numbers and other characters), arranged correctly, give rise to an image. So it was that the gods created man, in their mage, via progamming. When Adam stood naked in the Garden and named the animals one by one, fixing them in their designated form, he was acting - according to his God-given nature - as co-creator and assistant programmer of Creation. He was intoning the complete sequence of his own (human) DNA.
"What is DNA? According to Jeremy Narby: "DNA and the cellbased life it codes for are an extremely sophisticated technology that far surpasses our present understanding and that was intitially developed elsewhere than on earth." The evolutionists may be right that Man is "evolved from" the animals, but not in the way they think. According to occult legend, Man was here first. Nevertheless human DNA is indeed in effect the sum total of that information: an amalgam of the countless different strains or "strands" of organic creation. Human DNA contains all the "digits pertaining to the other species, and something extra besides."
"Love, the beginning and end of the heart." - Thoth
"The Serpent that is winged (before the fall) represents the very highest "character" in the sequence. The Serpent that is fallen stands for the lowest. The snake - representing the DNA stand - is there at the beginning and he is there in the end. Like Oroborus, its beginning is its end, and vice versa. When the Serpent lost its wings, however, and was condemned to "walk the dust," the earthly was disconnected from the divine, and the lines went down. Man - now "humanity" - became a fully and grossly material being, wholly identified with physical, organic nature." - Aeolus Kaphas
"Unfallen "Adam" in the book of Genesis represents Man as a collective organism, a vessel for "God" (the Elohim), divine consciousness as it entered into material existence. His word was the word of creation, not division, as it would later become. The Serpent represents the means by which Spirit enters into Matter and "enlivens" it, just as, at a purely physical level, the male penis enters the female vagina, and the sperm penetrates the ovum. The Serpent, initially a symbol of the divine in physical form, came to represent the principal of sexual regeneration, the means by which life propagates itself. The snake shedding its skin is likewise in imitation of this divine process, by which "souls" (projections of the divine) incarnate in a series of organic forms, without ever being identified with these forms. They are regenerated indefinitely, while maintaining the same essential quality - that of energy. The snake is the origional archetype representing organic existence itself, the cycle of life, death, and rebirth that all manifestations must undergo in order to partake of individual being.
"When this process is conscious - i.e., identified with the eternal energy that indwells - the "snake" is depicted with wings. Once the process becomes unconscious and the energy identifies with the temporary form it has assumed, the snake has lost its wings. (Another, more commonly cited image is that of the caterpillar and the butterfly.)
"Adam named the animals and had "dominion" over them. At that time, Man understood himself as co-creator of the Universe (the Garden), one with it even while existing "outside" [as the omniverse self-enveloping its animated/originative universe] of it. He was more than the sum of his parts. His animal nature was the means by which he partook of Creation, but it was not to be indentified with or ruled by. Yet, because Man could not perceive himself as separate from Creation (except by seeing himself as "above" it, i.e., as God), he could not experience organic existence from the inside, as a separate being. As a selfless vessel, at one with the totality of Nature, Man was "not." When he identified with God, he ceased to exist as a separate being; and when fully engaged in the material realm, he became a part of it. He was innocent, without self-awareness, and for this reason "deathles," since what has no separate identity cannot die."
"The creatures showed me how they had created life on the planet in order to hide within the multitudinous forms and thus disguise their presence. Before me, the magnificence of plant and animal creation and speciation - hundreds of millions of years of activity - took place on a scale and with a vivdness impossible to imagine. I learned that the dragon-like creatures were thus inside all forms of life, including man. They were but the receptacles and servants of these creatures. For this reason they could speak to me from within myself. In retrospect one could say they were almost like DNA." - Michael Harner, The Way of the Shaman
Supporintg Notes n' Quotes
"The one hope of the world is philosophy, for all the sorrows of modern life result from the lack of a proper philosophic code. Those who sense even in part the dignity of life cannot but realize the shallowness apparent in the activities of this age. Well has it been said that no individual can succeed until [s/]he has developed [her/]his philosophy of life. Neither can a race or nation attain true greatness until it has formulated an adequate philosophy and has dedicated its existence to a policy consistent with that philosophy."
"Truly did Mohammed declare the ink of philosophers to be more precious than the blood of martyrs..."
"[War] cannot die until human selfishness is overcome."
"Two fundamental forms of ignorance were recognized by the Platonists: simple ignorance and complex ignorance. Simple ignorance is merely lack of knowledge and is common to all creatures existing posterori to the First Cause, which alone has perfection of knowledge. Simple ignorance is an ever-active agent, urging the soul onward to the aquistition of knowledge. From this virginal state of unawareness grows the desire to become aware with its resultant improvement in the mental condition. The human intellect is ever surrounded by forms of existence beyond the estimation of its partly developed faculties. In this realm of objects not understood is a never-failing source of mental stimuli. Thus wisdom eventually results from the effort to cope rationally with the problem of the unkown.
"In the last analysis, the Ultimate Cause alone can be denominated wise; in simpler words, only God is good. Socrates declared knowledge, virtue, and unity to be one with innate nature of good. Knowledge is a condition of knowing; virtue a condition of being; utility a condition of doing. Considering wisdom as synonymous with mental completeness, it is evident that such a state can exist only in the Whole, for that which is less than the Whole cannot possess the fullness of the All. No part of creation is complete; hence each part is imperfect to the extent that it falls short of entirety. Where incompleteness is, it also follows that ignorance must be coexistent; for every part, while capable of knowing its own Self, cannot become aware of the Self in other parts. Philosophically considered, growth from the standpoint of human evolution in a process proceeding from heterogeneity to homogeneity. In time, therefore, the isolated consciousness of the individual fragments is reunited to become the complete consciousness of the Whole. Then, and then only, is the condition of all-knowing an absolute reality."
"Thus all creatures are relatively ignorant and relatively wise; comparatively nothing yet comparatively all."
"Even in man's present state of imperfection it is dawning upon his realization that he can never be truly happy until he is perfect, and that of all the faculties contributing to his self-perfection non is equal in importance to the rational intellect. Through the labyrinth of diversity only the illumined mind can, and must, lead the soul into the perfect light of unity."
"Philosophy reveals to man his kinship with the All."
"Ignorance of ignorance, then, is that self-satisfied state of unawareness in which man, knowing nothing outside the limited area of his physical senses, bumptiously declares there is nothing more to know!"
"From the four corners of creation swells a mighty anthem of rejoicing, for here in the light of philosophy is revealed the purpose of existencel the wisdom and goodness permeating the Whole become evident to even man's imperfect intellect. Here the yearning heart of humanity finds that companionship which draws forth from the inner-most recesses of the soul that great store of good which lies there like precious metal in some deep hidden vein.
"Following the path pointed out by the wise, the seeker after truth ultimately attains to the summit of wisdom's mount, and gazing down, beholds the panorama of life spread out before him. The cities and plains are but tiny specks and the horizon on every hand is obscured by the gray haze of the Unknown. Then the soul realizes that wisdom lies in breadth of vision; that is increases in comparison to the vista. Then as man's thoughts lift him heaven-ward, streets are lost in cities, cities in nations, nations in continents, continents in the earth, the earth in space, and space in an infinite eternity, until at last but two things remain: the Self and the goodness of God." - Manly P. Hall
"According to the Zohar, the day is nearing when the inner secrets of nature, which have remained so long in hiding, will at last be revealed. This knowledge will enable us to grasp the very essence of all that is within us and around us, and will grant us to the domain of non-space, providing us with a framework for the comprehension of no only our familiar, observable universe but also of that which lies beyond the reange of observation in the realms of the metaphysical. This truth will tease open the supreme enigmas of the origins of man and of the universe - both the how and the why.
"Who is the creator-observer of whom we speak? He is none other than man, the initiator of thought."
"The universe - including man within it - is an enormous composite of thought. We might be inclined to think that an idea as huge as the universe could only be held in the mind of the Lord, the Grand Unified Thought of which I am speaking is actually a larger manifestation of the same thought that we are sharing at this moment." - Rav Berg

"Centuries ago, one of the secret masters of the Quest wrote: "The Eternal Good reveals its will and pleasure through the body of Nature and the motions of Universal Law. Within the body of Nature and Law there is a soul which must be discovered by great thoughtfulness.

"It is hard to imagine that a Supreme Being would condemn its own units of awareness, no matter how small and entrapped they have become, and no matter how insanely and destructively some of them behave as a result.
"Would a Supreme Being, seeing how bad everything has gotten, perhaps end its experiement and vanish all awareness units except itself? If such a thing were possible, I daresay it would not be done. Creating an almost infinite number of spiritual beings would actually have been a brilliant move on the part of a Supreme Being to expand itself immeasurably. The solution to what went wrong would be to preserve the awareness units and encourage them to achieve their salvation.
"Spiritual salvation would probably not happen through the waving of a magical Godly wand, however. Because spiritual beings possess free and independent will, salvation appears to be something that can be achieved as pragmatically as any other goal in life, provided that a rational understanding of how to attain it is developed.
"Many theologies teach that a Supreme Being is opposed by an enemy. Perhaps there is an element of truth to this, even if the truth has been distorted. We do observe at every level of existence there exists a condition or "game" in which survival is challenged. At the personal level, an individual's survival is constantly opposed by aging, diseases, and other factors. The survival of a family unit is often tested by financial problems, hostile relatives and outside sexual temptations. Organizations and nations usually have competitors and enemies. In the animal kingdom, the survival drama is most vividly played out in hunter-prey relationships. All physical objects face inevitable deterioration. Spiritual beings themselves appear to face survival challenges by being trapped in matter.
"Since this survival game seems to exist at every level of existence, it is possible that it also exists in regard to a Supreme Being - a game in which a Supreme Being's own survival is tested by the diminishment of the Supreme Being itself. For such a game to exist, a Supreme Being would have has to either negociate with one or more of its awareness unites to the Supreme Being's opponent(s), or a Supreme Being would have to create in one or more of its awareness units an apprehension that a Supreme Being posed a threat to the continued existence of all other spiritual beings. A Supreme Being's opponent would not be any different or inherently more evil than any other spitiual being, any more than one nieghbor who sits down opposite another to play a game of Monopoly is innately more evil just because he or she plays a different side. An opponent would simply be one who became a different marker on a game board and played as well as possible. If such a game has indeed existed, then we can cetainly hope that it may end soon by a Supreme Being conveying thanks to the opponent(s) for a game well-played, promising the indefinite survival of its awareness units, and asking that to rest so that everyone may start moving into a new phase of fundamentally-improved existence."
"Hence all unconscious nature longs for the light of consciousness while frantically struggling against it at the same time." - C.G. Jung, Answer to Job
"Some mystical religions teach that one's ultimate spiritual aim should be to permanently "merge with" a Supreme Being. This appears to be a false goal... It may now even be possible to do so. The true goal of any salvation program should be to recover one's unique spiritual self-awareness and perspective."
And what if the former and the latter happen to be one in the same?
"Perspective is apparently what determines the size of a spiritual being... A spiritual being in an untrapped state can apparently change perspective in the same way in relation to the entire universe. The universe can appear no longer than a coffee cup, or an atom the size of a mountain. This is apparently how a spiritual being becomes "bigger" or "smaller." Changing perspective in this fashion is not an act of mere thinking, however. It is a matter of actually shifting direct spiritual perception in as real and tengible a fashion as the person who hope an elevator to the top of a skyscraper. Spirutal beings on earth are largely confined to the single perspective dictated by the physical bodies they animate. Mental perspectives can still change, but not the direct perspective of the spiritual entity in relation to the universe itself."
"The foregoing discussion has some rather clear implications in regard to the rest of the book. The act of repressing a spiritual being, entrapping in it matter, or otherwise seeking to reduce its vision, creativity, or self-awareness as a spirutal being is the act of trying to reduce a Supreme Being."
"Since only other units of awareness can engage in such repression, it follows that a bizzare psychosis has arisen. It is as though extensions of the same ultimate body are trying to repress other extensions."
- William Bradley, Gods of Eden
"The UFO is a reflection of a future event that promises humanity's eventual mastery over time, space and matter... It is like a god; it is the human god. It is something that will happen to human destiny some time in the future, and because it will happen, it is happening. Nothing is unannounced... The alien is teaching something through its reinforcement schedule: It is preparing us to confront the God facet of ourselves." - Terence McKenna
It becomes common sense that humanity has become, if it wasnt conceived as such, a karmic experiment designed for the default self-registration of omnipotence by a supreme, omnipresent force. This is made clear by our haphazardly fogged and mythologized history, or lackthereof, the content of that history, our fossil and genetic record, and our general - spiritual - retardation on the subtle energy-system/chakra/psychic-level.
"Everyone on earth has a spiritual, unkown, self which transcends the material world and consciousness and dwells eternally outside of the Time dimension in spiritual perfection within the unity of the oversoul." (Orfeo's angels)
"The Quest is seemingly imposed by a superior or higher entity: it is the quest to find the true Self. This is one of the most persistent themes to be found in UFO material. Most contactees express genuine suprise that they should be the ones singled out as being worthy of the mission. Few can believe that they have any of the required qualifications (save that of being very ordinary - Mr. or Mrs. Average). Many of the heroes of legend have the similar misgivings and blame fate for the seemingly arbitrary nature of the choosing. However, on closer examination of the intricate webs of the cosmos, the hero discovers a deeper pattern which remains essentially unknowable, but one that [s/]he has to follow." - account of Orfeo
"When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female... then you will enter the kingdom."
- Yeshuah/Jesus of Nazareth
"The two - the hero and his ultimate god, the seeker and the found - are thus understood as the outside and inside of a single, self-mirrored mystery, which is identified with the mystery of the manifest world. The great deed of the supreme hero is to come to the knowledge of this unity in multiplicity and then to make it known...
"Two degrees of initiation are to be distinguished in the mansion of the father. From the first the son returns as emissary, but from the second, with the knowledge that "I and the father are one." Heroes of this second, highest illumination are the world redeemers, the so-called incarnations, in the highest sense. Their myths open out to cosmic proportions. Their words carry an authority beyond anything pronounced by the heroes of the scepter and the book." - Joseph Campbell
"Throughout history, religions, both primitive and sophisticated, have held beliefs of spiritual beings, powers, and principles that mediate between the One transcendental realm of the sacred and the profane dualistic world of space and time..."
"One wonders how the concept of a dualistic universe, which appears to be quite a latecomer to human thought, managed to permeate the rest of space. However, in terms of early myths, it is part of the hero's quest that he transcend all the polarities, that he unites the good and the evil, the earthly and the heavenly, the male and the female. This is the ultimate reward for his jounrey into the other world." - account of Orfeo (Godwin's Angels)
"Magikal thinking aspires to reduce existence to basic polarities." - Kaphas
"Duality is always, secrety, unity." - Alan Watts
"The Truth is very simple, when You get to understand the nature of this Divine relationship and how we were created as the Two within One, the exact polarised counterparts within the same frequency field.

"The early Hebrews attributed everything which happened everywhere, whether in Heaven or on Earth, to the One God. The evolution of a single separate force for evil which opposed the One Good God only began two hundred years before the birth of Christ. The Old Testament God did not live in such dualistic times. He was always the One held responsible for what happened in the entire Universe and thus, like the Indian deity, Shiva, encapsulated creativity and destruction in one indissoluble principle. This is clearly stated in Isaiah 45:7 when God says "I form the Light and create the Darkness; I make Peace and create evil.""
"But gradually, from the 2'nd century B.C. onwards, the Hebrews turned from this belief in an ambivalent God, to one who is only good. Although there were many variations on this monist theme, a belief in the existence of a separate Evil One gradually developed. This manevolent principle had a completely distinct life of its own, being totally opposed and alien to the benevolent nature of the Good Almighty.
"This creates an obvious dilemma, for how could a totally benign Divinity who had created all and everything, include in His Creation an equally powerful opponent who sought at all times to overthrow Him?"
"This is another term of the dilemma, the system of breaths/spirits, the order of the Antichrist, which is opposed point for point to the divine order. It is characterized by the death of God, the destruction of the world, the dissolution of the person, the disintegration of bodies, and the shifting function of language which now expresses only intensisties... One cannot conserve the self without also holding on to God." - Delueze
"The result was a paradoxical tension between the essentially monist concept of a single divine principle underlying the cosmos and a dualistic idea of a separate principle for Good and a separate principle for Evil.
"Whilst the rabbis have managed to extricate Judaism from those earlier conflicts, to this day the doctrine of the Christian Church remains hampered by the confusion arising from the two essentially incompatible ideas. And standing like a shadow in the center of the ensuing cyclone is the dark angel. The idea of separate evil or that of the fallen Angels does not appear at all in the Old Testament. Instead we find ha-satan, "the Adversary." Yet this was a common noun which simply meant "an opponent." It was possibly the title of an office like that of the persecution in present day law, rather than the name of any particular diabolic personality.
"As part of their general explanation of how the forces of good and evil interact, the cosmic guardians mention Christ, but only as an allegorical Son of God. In reality he was the "Lord of the Flame" and not of earth at all." - Godwin
"Most contactees have something to say about Christ. Invariably they offer new accounts of who he really was, often emphasizing the new age character of the space savior. The illustration of Christ as spaceman is a familiar image of our times." - account of Orfeo
"... The term angel derives from a Greek translation of the origional Hebrew mal'akh, which origionally meant the "Shadow side of God," but later same to mean messenger. This derivation may offer a clue as to why we all fell a certain vagueness when attempting to describe the nature of an angel. For a "messenger" implies a function or status within a cosmic hierarchy, rather than an essence.
"The primary significance of angels lies not in who or what they are, but rather in what they do. Their inherent nature cannot be separated from their relationship with the Prime mover, the God or ultimate source."
"Not only are angels inseparable from God, they are also indivisible from their witnesses." - Goodwin

Omniversal Omnipotence
[A paraclete is not the direct personality of Jesus Christ: the paraclete is a messenger of Christ's reality. Let no human fool you: you will know Jesus by divine entrance, appearance, and/or miracles, etc.]
Most churches, christian media, and teachers turned me off from God and Christ because of their personal confusion, abusive faith, aesthetic superficiality, theological, ethical, and scientific contradictions, etc. The elite-eugenicist engineered public school system and superficial religious society kept me ignorant of the world until I turned 13 or 14 and began to notice how ass-backwards everything was from the news to medicine; from school to war: this led me to read Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse my sophmore year which led me to collect all the books that would lead me to figure out & formulate the Syllogism of Spirit: a discovery which would make perfectly clear what Jesus meant by God, the Holy Ghost, redemption, perfection, and the one path. I learned from my first skateboard sponorship (Steve O'hara) that, to be the best at anything, you had to eat, breath, and sleep whatever it is you're doing: this is how I treated my intution regarding the truth behind the Buddha, Christ, the Tao, etc. I dropped what would have been a professional skateboard career and emptied my wallet with books to surround my walls: after 8 years of intense and exclusive reflection I have chiseled my formula down to a perfected syllogistic system.
The profound teachers of our world - Krishna, Hermes, Buddha, Jesus, other yoga masters, noble and devious mystery school-masters, extra-terrestrials, 'angels & demons,' demi/gods, etc. - cannot give all the answers away to humanity because that isn't why humanity is in its current situation: if they were to wave the wand for us and grant us the light of truth, God, and Self, then this particular process of omnipresence earning the registration of y/our omnipotence would, presumably, have to restart. That is the point to biblical mythology: the tale of satan, adam and eve are meant to cover-up the reality left to humankind to earn for one's self. It clearly hasn't been an easy or short jounrey thus far, and for many it is difficult to see where we are in the overall process - whatever that process may or may not be. Fortunately, many people are now recognizing, as history's prophets and intellectuals have all been predicting, that humanity is becoming ripe and overdue for apocolyptic revelation(s). This overwhelming phenomena has openned the door to many of you for what I am about to explain: the core prophecy regarding the 2012, Antichrist, living-dead apocolypse has already been properly fufilled!
*Christ as 'the only exclusive path/way' means that God - personal omnipresence - is universally true - reality - for everyone.
1 Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 "Do you see all these things?" he asked. "Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down."
It is important to note that this is true regardless what the future may hold.
As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
4 Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains."
This has all been fufilled along the lines of omnipresence as a collective process of rebirth via self-realization.
9 "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people."
This is why faith is folly regarding God and Christ until humanity has achieved self-realization for itself (and, as such, directly achieving God's omnipresent self-realization).
"12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." - Mathew 24
Christ-consciousness doesn't make everyone 'Jesus': Jesus is one of countless incarnations such as your current body called 'Bob' or 'Pam' - it is the Christ - savior - dimension of God's exclusively all-inclusive omnipresence which unites us under one experience of potentially retrogressive incarnations. Jesus is the King of Angels and therefore is probably not an experiential modality: his and all experience is located currently in some human incarnation (I know mine as only you may know y/ours).
Realizing that you are the Cosmic Spirit makes everyone always-already you and vice versa - via the potentialities latent within retrogressive reincarnation (or, maybe, 'life is but a[nother] dream'): therefore all others are y/our Holy Ghost - phantom modalities of conscious-capacity - and that the birth pangs of birth have occured along with the apocolyptic revelation of the 'living-dead' and 'Word of God.'
"2'nd coming of Christ-consciousness as Self-Realization."
- Yogananda, Kriya Yogi Master
Christ's second coming is God's 'second birth' (the origional 'birth' being natural ontic genesis/automation) as becoming self-aware (registered omnipresence).
"Whoever finds the interpretation of these words shall not taste death." - Jesus
"Know what is within your sight, for there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed." - Jesus
"Descartes also wrote a response to skepticism about the existence of the external world. He argues that sensory perceptions come to him involuntarily, and are not willed by him. They are external to his senses, and according to Descartes, this is evidence of the existence of something outside of his mind, and thus, an external world. Descartes goes on to show that the things in the external world are material by arguing that God would not deceive him as to the ideas that are being transmitted, and that God has given him the "propensity" to believe that such ideas are caused by material things." - Wikipedia
"Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father."
- Jesus, John 16:25
"... [Jesus promised T]hat, at His Second Coming, just before The End, He would show people clearly about God. He said that just before the Last-Day, when everybody is due to be judged on his/her individual merits, He would come again and publish the Truth of God and enlighten the whole world." - James Redfield
Today we know that ontological monism is the only way to provide any proof regarding the default omnipresence which is completely consistent with the Christ's teaching.
"[T]he Paraclete, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your rememberance, whatsoever I have said unto you." - Jesus, John 14:26
"In the last days," said God, "I will Pour out my Spirit upon All people." Acts 2:17
If the entity known as the Holy Ghost is the community of Christ, then that would simply make every 'other' one unit of the collective, potential past and future entity of y/our omni-subconsciousness, thereby making them y/our/God's 'Holy Ghost.' If this is the case, which it must be since nothing is - science is not -left open to interpretation, then Christ's prophecy has been literally fufilled. Christianity is a contradiction because Christ's mission was to promote humanity above the abusive trust of blind faith and into the realm of scientific evolution. The Dead Sea Scrolls confirm a Jesus who has, apparently, been widely over-looked for his expertise as a philosopher-ontologician. He did not intend for science to be the new religion: he intended for us to transcend that very abusive trust for the redeeming truth.
"In 2 Peter 1:12, we are informed that the Word of God interprets itself so that it is not left up to us humans to decide what it says or does not say: "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."" - Patrick Heron
"He who shall find the interpretation of these words shall not taste of death."
"Know what is within your sight, for there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed." - Jesus, Gospel of Thomas
"For the One who has become many remains the One undivided, but each part is all of Christ." - Saint Symeon (the younger A.D. 949-1022)
"I am thou, and thou art I; and wheresoever thou mayest be I am there. In all am I scattered, and whensoever thou willest, thou gatherest Me; and gathering Me, thou gatherest Thyself." - Jesus, Gospel of Eve
"That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou has sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me." - Jesus, John 17: 21 -23 (Communion with God)
But when you see the Eternal Existent, that is the great vision."
They all said to him, "Tell us about it!"
He said to them, "How do you wish to see it? By means of a transient
vision or an eternal vision?" He went on and said, "Strive to save
that which can follow you, and to seek it out, and to speak from
within it, so that, as you seek it out, everything might be in
harmony with you.
"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." Jesus (John 8:12)
"Our separation from Him is an appearance, merely." - Paramhansa Yogananda
"The Lucky Heirs
[lucky hare symbolism]
"Genes operate as a system. The change of one changes the system and modifies the value of all other genes... When a change, however rare, opens a new evolutionary road better suited to an environment, then natural selection will protect and multiply the lucky heirs and seek furthur mutations among them." - Robert Ardrey, African Genesis
"As organic life mutates, the runaway transforming gene (the consequences of which are perceived at present in their destructive mode, as AIDS, Ebola, and so forth) will turn each race from within towards a new hue, an alternate order of being, and a new mode of belonging. Each race turns, like the sunflower, towards its Star. This is the great becoming, and neither Science nor Religion nor Politics can impede it, try as they might (and they will try). As the will progresses from death to life, collective to individual, so does this knowledge come clear: in diversity is harmony, biological separation is the means to energetic unity. Blood is thicker than water, yes; but Spirit runs through all blood, invisible, imperial, and we must learn to recognize that gene.
"In John 14:26, there appears an obscure term. "But the Paraclete, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your rememberance, whatsoever I have said unto you." This mysterious substance is also called the Comforter, the preferred translation of many versions of the Bible. The word seems meant expressly to obscure the Paraclete's true function, however (which is anything but comforting). The Paraclete is the Holy Spirit, the Holy Grail, that sacred, mutant gene, ever present, ever elusive, self-transforming and self-redeeming."
"The Paraclete is the sacred gene, the divine virus, the Holy Spirit (tanslated also as "consoler" in the Bible: consolation for getting stiffed with a second-rate reality, perhaps?). It is responsible for humanity's remembering its true nature as God. From a magikal perspective, the vast amount of "knowledge" - memories - amassed by humankind at this time does not serve to bring us closer to our apotheosis as a species, or to self-realization as God. In current terminology, it neither advances nor enhances the program, only jams it up with excess and useless data. At the great rebooting, this useless data will be flushed, and as a result of - contingent upon and simultaneous with - this flushing of collective memories, a new flow of hitherto "lost" or blocked information will occur. At this point the program becomes self-installing, and the "hard drive" (the collective unconscious of humanity) becomes conscious of itself and of its true (preprogrammed) initiative or agenda. This agenda, as the word suggests, is genetic, instinctive and not "rational." It is conscious in a way that the intellect not only has not imagined but cannot imagine - conscious not merely of the part but of the whole.
"Here is the great mystery of all written mysteries, the hidden agenda of language itself, which is to undo itself.
"Christ = Logos = Word = Language." - Kaphas Aeolus
"It was the One's purpose for our hologramatic Universe to serve as a teaching instrument by which a variety of new lives advanced until ultimately they would be isomorphic with the One [omnipotent]. However, the decaying condition of hyperuniverse 2 introduced malefactors which damaged our hologramatic universe. This is the origin of entropy, un-deserved suffering, chaos and death, as well as the Empire, the Black Iron Prison; in essence, the aborting of the proper health and growth of life forms within the hologramatic universe. Also, the teaching function was grossly impaired, since only the signal from the hyperuniverse 1 was information-rich; that from 2 had become noise. The psyche of hyperuniverse 1 sent out a micro-form of itself into hyperuniverse 2 to attempt to heal it." - Philip K. Dick, Valis
"Language is magik, magik is language. Reason, having rationed all portions or "bytes" according to their correct proportion, becomes obsolete. And so the image comes clear: the Logos, the Word. Humanity has used language to discover that humanity is language - the chosen form of expression of God. God speaks. And what He says, simply, is "I am.""
"I term the Immortal One a plasmate, because it is a form of energy: it is living information. It replicates itself - not through information or in information - but as information. The plasmate can crossbond with a human, creating what I call a homoplasmate. This annexes the mortal human permanently to the plasmate. We know this as the 'birth from above' or 'birth from the Spirit.' It was initiated by Christ, but the Empire destroyed all the homoplasmates before they could replicate... As living information, the plasmate travels up the optic nerve of a human to the pineal body. It uses the human brain as a female host in which to replicate itself into the active form. This is an interspecies symbiosis." - Philip K. Dick, Valis
"The effect of the Paraclete or "Comforter" is difficult either to predict or describe. When Christ infected humanity with his "word," humanity became a carrier for the Logos. "This generation shall not pass away before these things come to pass," said Christ. Maybe it didn't. Conceivably, the last two thousand years of history have been nothing but the fever dream of this first, exposed generation of humans as they react to the symbiote, causing a runaway replication of image words/worlds, worlds that are nothing but a means of assembling of false realities to hide in, wombs or matrices where at least we can retain an illusion of control and "individuality."
"Apparently the nature of this mutation is so alien that humanity chooses to forget or dismiss its experiences as inconsistent with what it knows as "real." In fact, none of this is real; only the plasmate is real... [I]f the mind is not suitably resilient and uncluttered a vessel for the plasmate to emerge through, it will be deranged and unhinged by the experience. It will retain only a twisted and sinister image of the truth: a "devil" in place of a god."
"Individual awareness will expand to infinity."
"The power of Logos is the power to speak reality into being - to create worlds through mere thought. The power of language is the power of God. If humanity is not prepared or able to use this power, hoever - and most especially if it is unaware of having attained it - it can only use it (unconsciously) for purposes directly opposed to those intended. Instead of the truth making humanity free (which can only happen if the truth is understood), it has caused us to fall deeper into falsehood. The plasmate gave humanity the power to make truth out of falsehood, as the only possible alternative to having the last of our illusions destroyed by Truth.
"If it was through language that we thought, spoke, and wrote into being, it is through language that we will bring it to an end. The truth will make us free - but only once we take responsibility for it."
"When the Christ-plasmate or Paraclete enetered into humanity, humanity became God, and in terror and confusion we assembled a brilliant illusion in which to hide from such an unbearable responsibility. If this were the case, it would make the illusion called the world a matrix, a womb in which we are preparing to be born again." - Kaphas Aeolus
"It is proper to say: we appear to be memory coils (DNA carriers capable of experience) in a computer-like thinking system which, although we have carrectly recorded thousands of years of experiential information, and each of us posseses somewhat different deposits from all the other life forms, there is a malfunction - failure - of memory retrieval. There lies the trouble in our particular subcircuit. 'Salvation' through gnosis - more properly anamnesis (the loss of amnesia) - although it has individual significance for each of us - a quantum leap in perception, identity, cognition, understanding, world- and self-experience, including immortality - it has greater and furthur importance for the system as a whole, inasmuch as these memories are data needed by it and valuable to its overall functioning. Therefore it is in the process of self-repair, which includes: rebuilding our subcircuit via linear and orthogonal time changes, as well as continual signaling to us to stimulate blocked memory banks within us to fire and hence retrieve what is there." - Phillip K. Dick, Valis
"Hence all unconscious nature longs for the light of consciousness while frantically struggling against it at the same time." - C.G. Jung, Answer to Job
"As Steiner writes, "In soul-spiritual terms, the intellect can gain ground only when people die, when they constantly carry death forces within them... intellect is only possible in a world ruled by death... For this we will be forced to rely on Ahriman, a being who is very different from us and whose evolutionary path is very different from ours.""
"It is now up to humanity to understand the nature of this riddle, and to use it to bring about its own salvation. When a god entered intot he realm of the intellect, a god became mortal. Christ's crucifixion demonstrated two things: the power of the divine, and the capacity of the intellect to err, to stray from the divine, to the point of becoming opposed to it.
"By the divine entering into the realm of the intellect, and so falling temporarily under its power, a bridge was created, a bridge by which it became possible for HUmanity to experience the divine intellectually. This was the gods' victory over Ahriman (and why he was, as steiner wrote, "cast in chains" by the Christ event)."
"The idea that devil and god, Christ and Satan, are the same Entity is the ultimate blasphemy to the Judeo-Christian mind-set, because these systems of worship depend almost exclusively on maintaining a dualistic paradigm and on keeping human consciousness enslaved to it. (Until now a god-form has depended on the twin offerings of belief and worship to thrive). But in reality, the fundamental duality of all religions since Egypt is not of God and Satan, but of God and Man: the deity and those that worship it. This belief system is now being forced to collapse under the weight of its own (il)logic.
"Either God and Satan (Man) are equals (heresy!), making Satan-Man also (a) God, to be respected as such (blasphemy!). Or, they are not equals, and - since God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent and Satan-Man is not - then (just as the vastest distances are reduced to nothing next to Infinity) Satan (and humanity) is merely one of God's litte (non-existent) helpers (sacrilege!). Either way you look at it, the entire moral conundrum of religious duality has kept humanity enthralled for several thousand years is revealed as so much humbug. Both Satan and Man must be assimilated into a new understanding of God, and God, likewise, must be expanded to incorporate our newly revised view of Satan and of ourselves. Any "second coming of Christ," therefore, if it is to be more than just a shallow, two-dimensional affair, must also be the final redemption of Lucifer. Anything else makes a mockery of the sufferings and insights of all those who lived and died in search of an answer to the superciliousness of Pontius Pilate and his ilk.
"What is Truth? This is.
"Enter unfallen Lucifer. Like Horus and Christ, He comes to judge the quick and the dead. Like Pan, our fear of Him makes Him terrible an donly through love (both eros and agape) can we overcome this fear. In Buddhist teachings, at death the Soul must enter a palace and gaze into a mirror to see clearly its true nature, and face all the horror and shame of its former life. The Soul must gaze upon the truth without flinching or looking away, until the evil of its ways has been burned away. Christian "logic" would seem to demand the idea that, to the unrepentant sinner, God appears as Satan, terrible and wrathful. Likewirse, to judge an unjust world, Horus comes as "God or War and Vengence," and Christ returns in wrath, bringing the sword of judgement.
"In precisely the same manner, Lucifer must first be known to hummanity as a devil, before He can be experienced as a god - and finally, "as God."" - Kaphas Aeolus
"The need for this fourth 'soul' or higher faculty is that mankind today is not a finished creature but a being in the process of transcending its own past." - Robert Anton Wilson, The Widow's Son
"Matter and physical reality are a kind of thick insulation, one that protects us from the immediate consequences of our thoughts... When we die and go into bardo, we no longer have that protection, that delayed reaction of the consequences of our thoughts, of our state of consciousness. We become immediately what we are; we are what we think. It is not God's wrath or human justice; it is just is-ness: we are what we are." - William Irwin Thompson, Coming Into Being
"Humanity's past is Satan. Its future is (And always will be) God. The only possible present is that of Lucifer/Christ."
"As the body is peirced and bled, the mind, through the pain of the ordeal, secedes. It is at this point that the Spirit enters and the pasmate awakens. In other words, the crucifixion is the means by which the mind, not the body, is "destroyed." When Christ gave up the ghost, it signified the moment when the personal self surrenders to unitive energy or divine consciousness. If the initiate is found worthy, the plasmate will then enter into the newly "openned" body, and the initiate will be reborn "from above," as God - the Totality."
In my greatest moment of pain is when I first thought about the possibility that nothing, nobody - not even God - is escaping this pain.
"The crucifixion therefore parallels ancient shamanic practices well-known yet little understood in the West. If, through physical torture, the aspirant succumbs to the pain and willingly surrenders himself to death while the body is still alive, he is able to cast his consciousness outside the physical, beyond the self, and pass "through the gates of death." He enters into a timeless state where the spirit is replenished; from here (if the aspirant has the necessary strength), he may return to the body and embark upon a new life. As theological tradition has it, the God becomes a man in order that the man may become as God. Jeshua's "sacrifice" was really nothing of the kind: he was paving the way fro humanity to follow, openning a doorway between this world and the next. "I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done... I go to prepare a place for you" (John 13:15, 14:2). There, with the grace of God, go we all.
"Christ is the door, and by Him, "if any man enter in, he shall be saved." As the Logos of the Sun, he signals the cosmic portal to the higher dimensions, the Kingdom of Heaven... The act created an openning in spacetime, a loophole in the contract of Cronos through which himan souls (individually or in flocks) might escape the snare of Samuel and graduate to galactic citizenship. Christ opened the way to the ultimate archetype: the Body of God." - Aeolus Kaphas
"Christ’s Second Coming, which is sure as God, is merely the correction of mistakes and the return of sanity. It is a part of the condition which restores the never-lost, and re-establishes what is forever and forever true. It is the invitation to God’s Word to take illusion’s place; the willingness to let forgiveness rest upon all things without exception and without reserve.

"It is the all-inclusive nature of Christ’s Second Coming that permits it to embrace the world, and hold you safe within its gentle advent which encompasses all living things with you. There is no end to the release the Second Coming brings, as God’s creation must be limitless. Forgiveness lights the Second Coming’s way because it shines on everyone as one.

"The Second Coming ends the lessons which the Holy Spirit teaches, making way for the Last Judgement, in which learning ends in one last summary that will extend beyond itself, and reaches up to God. The Second Coming is the time in which all minds are given to the hands of Christ, to be returned to Spirit in the Name of true creation and the Will of God.

"The Second Coming is the one event in time which time itself can not affect."
In other words: different people can learn about being everyone at different times.
"For every one who ever came to die, or yet will come or who is present now, is equally released from what he made. In this equality is Christ restored as one Identity, in Which all Sons of God acknowledge that they all are one. And God the Father smiles upon His Son, His one creation and His only joy.

"Pray that this Second Coming will be soon, but do not rest with that. It needs your eyes and ears and hands and feet. It needs your voice. And most of all it needs your willingness. Let us rejoice that we can do God’s Will, and join together in Its holy light. Behold, the Son of God is one in us, and we can reach our Father’s Love through him."

Jesus said,
"The kingdom is like a shepherd who had a hundred sheep. One of them, the largest, went astray. He left the ninety-nine and looked for the one until he found it. After he had toiled, he said to the sheep, I love you more than the ninety-nine."
1"I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. 3The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice." 6Jesus used this figure of speech, but they did not understand what he was telling them.
7Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. 8All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.[1] He will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. 11"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
14"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me — 15just as the Father knows me and I know the Father — and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life — only to take it up again. 18No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father."

Bahá'í Faith, founded in 19th-century Persia, considers Jesus, along with Muhammad, the Buddha, Krishna, and Zoroaster, and other messengers of the great religions of the world to be Manifestations of God (or prophets), with both human and divine stations.
"God is one and has manifested himself to humanity through several historic Messengers. Bahá'ís refer to this concept as
Progressive Revelation, which means that God's will is revealed to mankind progressively as mankind matures and is better able to comprehend the purpose of God in creating humanity. In this view, God's word is revealed through a series of messengers: Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, Bahá'u'lláh (the founder of the Bahá'í Faith) among them. In the Book of Certitude, Bahá'u'lláh claims that these messengers have a two natures: divine and human. Examining their divine nature, they are more or less the same being. However, when examining their human nature, they are individual, with distinct personality. For example, when Jesus says "I and my Father are one",[John 10:30] Bahá'ís take this quite literally, but specifically with respect to his nature as a Manifestation. When Jesus conversely stated "...And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me",[John 5:36-37] Bahá'ís see this as a simple reference to the individuality of Jesus. This divine nature, according to Bahá'u'lláh, means that any Manifestation of God can be said to be the return of a previous Manifestation, though Bahá'ís also believe that some Manifestations with specific missions return with a "new name",[Rev 3:12] and a different, or expanded purpose. Bahá'ís believe that Bahá'u'lláh is, in both respects, the return of Jesus." - Wikipedia
"The Bahá'í writings describe a single, personal, inaccessible, omniscient, omnipresent, imperishable, and almighty
God who is the creator of all things in the universe. The existence of God and the universe is thought to be eternal, without a beginning or end. Though inaccessible directly, God is nevertheless seen as conscious of creation, with a will and purpose that is expressed through messengers termed Manifestations of God.
Bahá'í teachings state that God is too great for humans to fully comprehend, or to create a complete and accurate image of, by themselves. Therefore, human understanding of God is achieved through his revelations via his Manifestations. In the Bahá'í religion God is often referred to by titles and attributes (for example, the All-Powerful, or the All-Loving), and there is a substantial emphasis on
monotheism; such doctrines as the Trinity contradict the Bahá'í view that God is single and has no equal.[16] The Bahá'í teachings state that the attributes which are applied to God are used to translate Godliness into human terms and also to help individuals concentrate on their own attributes in worshipping God to develop their potentialities on their spiritual path. According to the Bahá'í teachings the human purpose is to learn to know and love God through such methods as prayer, reflection and being of service to humankind." - Wikipedia
"In the Thomas gospel, Jesus is presented as a spiritual guide whose words (when properly understood) bring eternal life (Saying 1). Readers of these sayings are advised to continue seeking until they find what will enable them to become rulers of their own lives (Saying 2) and thus to know themselves (Saying 3) and their legacy of being the children of "the living Father" (Saying 3). These goals are presented in the image of "entering the Kingdom" by the methodology of insight that goes beyond duality. (Saying 22). The Gospel of Thomas shows little or no concern for orthodox religious concepts and doctrines. Scholars have traditionally understood the Gospel of Thomas as a Gnostic text because it was found amongst other gnostic texts, it was understood as being prone to a Gnostic interpretation by the early Church, and the emphasis on knowledge as the key to salvation, particularly in Saying 1. However this view has recently come under some criticism by suggesting that while it is possible to interpret the text in a way that aligns with Gnosticism there is nothing inherently Gnostic about the text itself.
The Gospel of Thomas emphasizes direct and unmediated experience. In Thomas saying 108, Jesus says, "Whoever drinks from my mouth will become as I am; I myself shall become that person, and the hidden things will be revealed to him." Furthermore, salvation is personal and found through spiritual (psychological) introspection. In Thomas saying 70, Jesus says, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you have will save you. If you do not bring it forth, what you do not have within you will kill you." As such, this form of salvation is idiosyncratic and without literal explanation unless read from a psychological perspective related to
Self vs. ego. In Thomas saying 3, Jesus says,
...the Kingdom of God is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty, and it is you who are that poverty.
In the other four gospels, Jesus is frequently called upon to explain the meanings of parables or the correct procedure for prayer. In Thomas saying 6, his disciples ask him, "Do you want us to fast? How should we pray? Should we give alms? What diet should we observe?" For reasons unknown, Jesus' answer is found in saying 14, wherein he advises against fasting, praying, and the giving of alms (all contrary to Christian practice of the time), although he does take a position similar to that in Mark 7: 18-19 and Matthew 15:11 that what goes into the mouth will not defile a person, but what comes out of the mouth will. This is just one example in Thomas in which the hearer's attention is directed away from objectified judgements of the world to knowing oneself in direct and straighforward manner, which is sometimes called being "as a child" or "a little one" through the unification of dualistic thinking and modes of objectification. (For example, Sayings 22 and 37) To portray the breaking down of the dualistic perspective Jesus uses the image of fire which consumes all. (See Sayings 10 and 82).
The teaching of salvation (i.e., entering the Kingdom of Heaven) that is found in The Gospel of Thomas is neither that of "works" nor of "grace" as the dichotomy is found in the canonical gospels, but what might be called a third way, that of insight. The overriding concern of The Gospel of Thomas is to find the light within in order to be a light unto the world. (See for example, Sayings 24, 26)
In contrast to the Gospel of John, where Jesus is likened to a (divine and beloved) Lord as in ruler, the Thomas gospel portrays Jesus as more the ubiquitous vehicle of spiritual inspiration and enlightenment, as in saying 77:
I am the light that shines over all things. I am everything. From me all came forth, and to me all return. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift a stone, and you will find me there.
In many other respects, the Thomas gospel offers terse yet familiar if not identical accounts of the sayings of Jesus as seen in the synoptic gospels.
Elaine Pagels, in her book Beyond Belief, argues that the Thomas gospel at first fell victim to the needs of the early Christian community for solidarity in the face of persecution, then to the will of the
Emperor Constantine, who at the First Council of Nicaea in 325, wanted an end to the sectarian squabbling and a universal Christian creed. She goes on to point out that in spite of it being left out of the Catholic canon, being banned and sentenced to burn, many of the mystical elements have proven to reappear perennially in the works of mystics like Jacob Boehme, Teresa of Avila and Saint John of the Cross. She concludes that the Thomas gospel gives us a rare glimpse into the diversity of beliefs in the early Christian community, an alternative perspective to the Johannine gospel." - Wikipedia
"He knew He was here to bring a new awareness into the world, a new culture based on Love not on emotion. His message was this: The One God is a Holy Spirit, a Divine Energy, Whose existence could be felt and proven experientially...
"As this message began to spread, I watched as one of the most influential of all empires, the Roman, embraced and then transformed Christ's Teaching into a new religion, spreading their inaccurate interpretation of His Message throughout much of Europe.
At this point I saw again the appeals of the Gnostics, urging the church to focus more fully on the inner, transformative experience, using Christ's life as an example (Imam) of what each of us should strive to achieve (John 14:6*). I saw the church lapse into the Fear, its leaders sensing a loss of control, building false-doctrine around the powerful hierarchy of the churchmen, who falsely made themselves out to be the mediators or dispensers of the spirit to the populace. Eventually all texts related to Gnosticism were deemed by the clergymen to be blasphemous and excluded from the Bible...
The Gnostics were early followers of "The Way" (Christ) who believed that followers of The One God should not merely revere Christ, but strive to emulate him, in every thought, word and deed. They sought to describe this emulation in philosophical terms, as a method of practice. As the early Roman church formulated its canons, the Gnostics were eventually considered willful heretics, opposed to turning their lives over to God as a matter of faith. To become a true believer, the early church leaders claimed, one had to forego understanding and analysis and be content to live life through divine revelation, adhering to God's Will moment by moment. The churchmen did this in order to sustain their control over the people. They wished to keep His True Teachings and overall plan from the public, so people would be deceived into thinking that they had to go to the churchmen to find God, rather than learning to look within and find the Divine within themselves as Christ's Message to the world had been.
Accusing the church hierarchy of tyranny, the Gnostics argued that their understandings and methods were intended to actually facilitate this act of "letting go to God's Will" that the church was requiring, rather than giving mere lip-service to the idea, as the churchmen were doing.
In the end the Gnostics lost, and were banished from all church functions and texts, their beliefs disappearing underground among the various secret sects and orders. Yet the dilemma was clear. As long as the church held out the vision of a transformative spiritual connection with the Divine, yet persecuted anyone who talked openly about the specifics of the experience - how one might actually attain such an awareness, what it felt like - then the "Kingdom Within" would remain merely an intellectualized concept within church doctrine, rather than reality within each person, and The Truth would be crushed anytime it surfaced." - James Redfield,
"... [I]n the Old Testament, there is no reference to the fallen angels at all. There is nothing to suggest that Satan was evil. We read of ha-satan, the "Adversary," but this appears to stand for an office, and by no means a wicked one, rather than being the name of an angel. Whoever held the office was the being most beloved by God and certainly not the Satan who appears in the New Testament."
"Legend Six: The Passion of the Redeemer
"This scenario is more subtle and more difficult to grasp than any of the others. This play opens with the Devil and his Angels already separated from God. They have already comitted the sun of pride and their Love of Self is above their Love of God. The Devil has an obsessive hatred of humans and has already managed to seduce Eve, and for this God cursed him. But the real fall of the forces of Darkness comes with the birth and passion of Christ.
"Up until this point God has given the Devil and his legions of Angels the power to tempt, to test and finally to punish humankind. God could have left us mortals in this perilous and unrewarding state, but St. Augustine comes up with an origional proposal. He says that instead of abandoning us, God took on human nature in order to make a full reconcilation with His creation. He was to feel as we feel and to suffer as we suffer under the Devil's reign. So, in the form of Christ He delivered himself, like the rest of us, to Lucifer.
"The Prince of Darkness, out of a blind hatred of Adam's line, greedily took what St. Augustine calls "a bait and hook." WHat Satan did not recognize as he grabbed at the prize was that Christ was both divine and sinless. So the Devil transgressed the terms of the contract he had with God. For the agreement was that he only had dominion over sinners and so by breaking the contract he was damned.
"In his unseccessful temptation of Christ, the second Adam, Satan was puzzled and could not decide whether Christ was divine or not."
"So God did not leave us all in the Devil's power. Although He had allowed us to fall into the Evil One's hands, He then chose to allow the same to happen to Himself in order to save us.
"When God as Christ harrows Hell to release those souls who had not enjoyed the benefit of the same redemption, Satan is furious and swears to renew his efforts to corrupt the world. At this Christ hurls him down and Michael binds him fast in Hell. Here is the real fall of the dark Angels. Trapped in Hell all they have left is power to punish humans who refuse to participate in Christ's sacrifice.
"Legend 7: Disobedience
"This brings us to the last variation of the Fall in which Disobedience and Pride are the combined cause.
"When Adam was first presented to the hierarchs by God, Satan, who was at that time the greatest of the Seraphim and Regent of Heaven, refused to bow before the new creation. "How can a Son of Fire bow to a Son of Clay?" was his response. The Divine sculptor was not amused at such a poor critical response to His masterpiece and His reaction was characteristically swift. As He flung His ex-regent into the Abyss, one third of the Angels chose to follow Satan.
"But there is a far more poignant Sufi version of this story. In this, Satan is seen as the angel who loved God the most. When God created the Angels He told them to bow to no one but Himself. Then He created Adam whom He considered higher than the Angels. He commanded them to bow before new figure, forgetting his previous commandment. Satan refused, partly because he couldn't disobey the first commandment, but also because he would only bow to his Beloved God. God, who has a long record of being a hasty judge of character or motive, didn't understand Satan's dilemma and cast him from heaven. The worst pain of Hell for Satan was the absence of the Beloved. All Satan has left is the eternal echo of God's angry last words and the merest lingering trace of HIs passing. Hell is the terrible loneliness of separation from love. In this story Satan becomes the jealous lover, who loathes Man as the new objest of God's love and the one which has replaced himself.
"The North-American Indian Sun-Dancers have a similar understanding of the fall. They believe that each person is a Living Medicine Wheel, powerful and limitless. Each of us is in reality a Power which possesses boundless, unimaginable energy but we have chosen to learn the lessons of limitation through being encapsulated in a body with finite boundaries. This created a new experience of separateness and loneliness. Only by understanding the illusory nature of this experience can a sense of being One with the divine be reawakened. This is also the significance of the parable of the Prodigal Son who had to leave his father's house in order to realize what he has lost. This is one of the more poignant underlying themes of the fall and one which puts Satan in a very different light." - Godwin
"In Valis, as in Xenophanes' God (and Parmenides') thought and being are one: hence what I call physical thoughts. This satisfies Heidegger's pre-fall unification, wherein thought and being are one. Hence Valis must operate in such an area as human history. In order to evolve complex info connections by which to think.
"Then it didn't enter human history to save mankind: no - it had to, in order for it to function and evolve and grow more and more complex. It must make use of us and our history. Then this incarnation was indeed its plan from the beginning. Yes; Heidegger says with the early pre-Socratics, man has his becoming-being (Heraclitus' flux) combined, and this is what "Logos" meant! This flux is not illusion but truly the appearance of becoming-being, which is what I saw Valis doing!"
"The arguments for Valis being the Cosmic Christ are not conclusive but they are compelling."
"... I figured out that Valis was not God but reality perturbed by God. I knew, then, that I had not found God after all. My great discovery, then, was not i nknowing what I had found, but facing the fact tof what I had not found - the very thing I was searching for." - Phillip K. Dick

"Teilhard's life work was predicated on the conviction that human spiritual development is moved by the same universal laws as material development. He wrote, "...everything is the sum of the past" and "...nothing is comprehensible except through its history. 'Nature' is the equivalent of 'becoming', self-creation: this is the view to which experience irresistibly leads us. ... There is nothing, not even the human soul, the highest spiritual manifestation we know of, that does not come within this universal law."
[12] There is no doubt that The Phenomenon of Man represents Teilhard's attempt at reconciling his religious faith with his academic interests as a paleontologist.[13] One particularly poignant observation in Teilhard's book entails the notion that evolution is becoming an increasingly optional process.[13] Teilhard points to the societal problems of isolation and marginalization as huge inhibitors of evolution, especially since evolution requires a unification of consciousness. He states that "no evolutionary future awaits anyone except in association with everyone else."[13] Teilhard argued that the human condition necessarily leads to the psychic unity of humankind, though he stressed that this unity can only be voluntary; this voluntary psychic unity he termed "unanimization." Teilhard also states that "evolution is an ascent toward consciousness", giving encephalization as an example of early stages, and therefore, signifies a continuous upsurge toward the Omega Point,[13] which for all intents and purposes, is God." - Wikipedia
The omniverse didn't choose 'me' to experience: I, the omniverse, chose this 'me'/body.
"By and large the people who have changed history have not been the great generals or politicians, but the artists and thinkers. An individual sitting alone in a room, giving birth to an idea, can do more to change the course of history than a general who commands thousands on the field of battle or a political leader who commands the loyalty of millions."
"One the one hand there are right-wing Christians, whom we should bracket with the cruder forms of Islam. Both want to repress human individual free will and intelligence, to lure us into an unenlightening ecstacy. This is the influence of Lucifer.
"On the other hand there is the militant scientific materialism that wants to snuff out the human spirit. Machines are making us machine-like. This is the influence of Satan, who wants to go furthur and squeeze out our spirit altogether and make us mere matter.
"And just as Lucifer incarnated so too will Satan incarnate. He will do so as a writer. His aim will be to destroy spirituality by 'explaining it away.'"
"At first he will appear as a great benefactor to mankind, a genius. To begin with he may not realize he is the Anti-christ, believing he acts only out of love for humanity. He will do away with much dangerous superstition and work to unite the religions of the world. However, there will be a moment of pride, when he realizes he is achieving some things that Jesus Chrsit was, apparently, unable to achieve. He will then become aware of his identity and mission.
"How to recognize Satan? Or any false prophet? Or any false, purportedly spiritual teaching? False teaching usually has little or no moral dimension, the benfits of reawakening the chakras, for example, being recommended merely in terms of selfish 'personal growth.' True spiritual teaching puts love of others and love of humanity at its heart - intelligent love, freely given. Beware to of teaching that doesn't invite questioning, or tolerate mockery. It is telling you, in effect, that God wants you to be stupid."
"As well as becoming aware that we may be prompted by disembodied intelligence, we may realize, too, that we are connected with one another more directly through thinking than we are through speech and physical observation. We may develop a heightened sense that our interation with other people is a far more mysterious preocess than we routinely suppose.
"In the future we may also learn to look at relationships in terms of reincarnation."
- Mark Booth, Secret History of the World
"It is natural for people to wonder how they might improve the world around them. A widespread misconception is that to be effective, a person must either be rich, a politician, or a saint. The truth is, one can successfully take responsibility for oneself and for one's fellow humans from exactly where one is with out greatly disrupting one's life or livlihood. One may begin by doing this gradually by first improving one's life, then by giving help to family and friends wher eit is wanted, then by joining or starting groups or with laudable social goals, and finally by pursuing a sense of firect personal responsibility for the human race. It is important that more people begin this process. As history has clearly shown, if you do not creat your own surroundings, someone else is going to create them for you, and you may not like what you get.
"Major constructive changes to our world actually do not require much to bring about. As a specific example, the inflatable paper money system, which continues to create indebtedness and instability at every level, can easily be replaced with a stable monetary system by merely ending bank-created money and setting up a system whereby money is issued by national governments in proportion to their gross ntational products and dispearsed without engendering debt. Banks could continue to participate in the system by being the conduit for the release and circulation of the money, but banks could no longer create money on their own. Government would no longer need to tax anyone or borrow, they could simple allocate to be paid by the governments for their services in dispersing and circulating they money, and by consumers for consumer services.

If they wanted a systematically sadistic human 'animal farm' then thats what they would have now. However, their agenda perhaps isn't so superficially sadistic: perhaps they are giving us a chance to redeem ourselves - our karma - as there would be no other way for a species such as humanity to evolve into the next psycho-physical & spiritual level.
The universe is billions of years old (in its collectively linear progres-sion from the big-bang to now). The chance for life not existing elsewhere in the cosmos is a practical -statistical; technical - impossiblity. Look back to where we were a couple centuries ago, and imagine where humanity would be another century or two down the road; another couple thousand years: imagine an alien civilization millions of years advanced. We aren't just talking about the potential for long-distance space-ships: we're talking about radical psycho-physiological evolution, biomechanics, spiritual revelation, nonlocal astral projections, psychic-drones, unveiling the missing 90+% of missing brain capacity, 'junk' DNA, dark matter & energy, alien intelligence, mind-matter unification implications for mind-over-matter symbolism and incantation, star-gates to chemtrail programs, etc.

My name in french class translated to Thomas: profound gospel author (Dead Sea Scrolls) who was described directly by Christ as his twin. I was born a Virgo in the country of Virginia on the holiday of the Virgin Mother Mary (September 12, 1988 - zodiac dragon). Skill and dexterity is attributed to the open-hand of Yod - represented by the Hermit tarot card also representing the Virgo - which is directly followed by Kaph in the Hebrew alphabet.
I moved to the New Hampshire seacoast in the fifth grade. I took 'The Hero's Quest' in highschool and did my final project on the book 'Siddhartha' by Hermann Hesse: from that point on I've been exploring, advancing, developing, chiseling down and fine-tuning my awareness of reality in-itself. My birthday is almost symmetrically mirrored against 21/12/2012 on the axis of the turn of the millenium (2000): centering the prime of this lifetime as a paraclete with the apocolyptic prophecy.

Virgo the Hermit - Key 9
"All will be revealed." - Led Zeppelin
"Yod (I, J, Y value 10) means the hand of man. It is the open hand, in contradistinction to Kaph, the closed one, which follows it in the alphabet. Yod indicates power, means, direction, skill, dexterity; but it is the sign rather of tendancy, aptitude, inclination, predisposition or potency than of actual activity. In the religious symbolism of the world the open hand is everywhere and at all times a type of beneficence, and of the freedom of the Supreme Spirit."
Yod is the initial letter of the tetragrammaton IHVH and the word IChIDH - 'INDIVISIBLE ONE' dwelling in Kether.
"Esoterically, the letter Yod corresponds to the experience of union with the Supreme SELF, the true I AM of the cosmos."
North-Below is the cube-space directionality of the Hermit. In this cube of space, the Hermit connects the Emperor to Justice.
"One reason for this attribution is that the destruction of error symbolized by Key 16 (North) is one of the elements of mystic experience. Furthurmore, that experience depends on certain tranformations of the Mars-force in the physical body, and these transformations are effected by subconsciousness (Below). Again, mystic experience is the supreme expression of subconscious processes of memory and association (High Priestess, Below). When we most perfectly remember ourselves we experience this blissful merging of personal consciousness with the universal.
"Virgo, the Virgin, a mutable or common earthly sign, is attributed to the letter Yod. It is ruled by Mercury (Key 1, the Magician), and is also the sign in which Mercury is exalted. Virgo is dominated, therefore, by self-conscious initiative, and represents the state in whcih the highest manifestation of self-consciousness is experienced.
"This state is what the Bible calls "heaven." Therefore Jesus said that in heaven there is neither marriage, nor giving in marraige, because in the blissful state of union there is no sense of "otherness," or separation. This corresponds to the idea of virginity connected with the sign. In the state of consciousness we are now considering, all distinctions of separate personality, and, consequently, all distinctions of sex, are completely obliterated.
"Astrologers say Virgo rules the intenstines, where indigestion is completed, and where the final selection is made between assimilable material and what is rejected as waste.

"In certain forms of occult practice, concealed inder the veils of alchemy, the assimilation of solar energy from food by the lacteals in the small intenstine is tremendously increased. To this practice we may refer alchemical references to the First Matter as "virgin's milk." prepared under the regimen of Mercury; to the process of putrefaction symbolized by a black dragon (the convolutions of the intestines in the darkness of the abdominal cavity); and to the fact that, in its visible aspect, the First Matter is a thing accounted by all men to be the vilest thing on earth.
"Intelligence of Will is the mode of consciousness attributed to the letter Yod. Say the Qabalists: "It prepares all created beings, each individually, for the demonstation of the existence of the primordial glory.
"The word translated above as "Will" means primarily "delight," and has, for supplementary meanings, "pleasure, intent, purpose, determination." Thus we find that all descriptions of mystic experience agree that it is first-hand knowledge of an ineffable glory, of an unspeakable bliss, and of an intensely certain and definite, though incommunicable, knowledge of the meaning and tendancy of the cosmic life-process. In this experience the question, "What is this all about?" is settles, once and for all. In it, too, the knowledge that there can be but one Free Will in the universe, of which Free Will all things and creatures are personal expression, is a knowledge established forever.
"The Hermit is a title referring to a passage in the Qabalah which says: "Yod is above all (symbolizing the Father), and with Him is none other associated." A hermit lives alone, isolated. The picture shows him alone, standing on a snowy mountain-peak, far above the climbing travelers for whom he holds aloft his lantern as a beacon.
"Every practice in occult training aims at the union of personal consciousness with the Cosmic Will which is the Causeless Cause of all particular manifestations.
"Although the Hermit seems to be alone, he is really the Way-shower, lighting the path for climbing multitudes below." - Case
"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)
"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you." Isa 60:1-2 (NIV)
"He [John] came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world." John 1:7-9 (NIV)
"Whoever has ears to hear should hear. There is light within a man of light, and it shines on the whole world. If it does not shine it is darkness." - Jesus
Jesus said, "If they say to you, `Where have you come from?' say to them, `We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established itself, and appeared in their image.' If they say to you, `Is it you?' say, `We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living father.' If they ask you, `What is the evidence of your father in you?' say to them, `It is motion and rest.'"
Y/our exclusively all-inclusive being is the light of all incarnations past present and future: and, as such, you keep the world from suffering itself by holding it all within you - you suffer for y/our world as the cosmic Christ-Consciousness. Phenomena such as split-personality disorder/'subconscious phantoms,' the bicameral mind, dreamscape people, creatures, and beings, various other black-out phenomena, artificial intelligence (manifest, classified, unknown, theoretical, and potential), etc. conclusively demonstrates that the contingently material (as distinguished from phenomenal/psychic) creation of any modality of life/conscious-capacity requires no immanent observerving-subject/consciousness in order to automate the phantom computation of the organism-enviroment's behavioral personality.
A breif note on the legitimacy of investiagting the physic phenomena of subconscious archetypes and symbolic registers: The originative past is a causal abstraction - a mind of energized, preconscious, material - the unmoved-mover: therefore, it provides a foundational memory with which to form some hierarchy of symbolic registry. Certain signs & symbols (even laws & myths) are prioritized by the subconscious storage-system of archetypal memory: this, taken with nonlocality, allows for the hierarchial system of symbolic potency regarding psychic phenomena (for example: tarot cards; which in themselves form a masterful narrative of spiritual law - regardless of their potential level of psychic resonance).
On Christmas night (12/25/09), 4 of my best friends and I (5 of us; significant because I already saw myself as all five of us before I was dealt key 4 - letter 5 - for my general tarot symbol) performed a very special tarot reading with one of my friends' fathers' old deck. In my room, we set up, on the floor, a shiney, orange, rectangluar tapestry with a large square mirror on top, with candles and christmas lights laid around it, to form a model of the 'outer' omniverse and it's reflective (inward-)universe. After tuning into our collective presence through meditation and magic mushrooms, John (already signified as the 'Fool' [the perfect type to be a tarot dealer in that the Fool represents everything always-already in it's pristine, preconscious totality] - Aleph; key 0 - in a pervious reading on Halloween with his girlfriend; with the same deck) performed the proper reading procedures for the other four of us: the 'Fool' & his deck signified ua successively as the Magician (Mike; key 1; Beth - blessing, builder), the Emperor (myself; key 4; letter 5 in Hebrew alphabet - Heh - representing wisdom, window), Death (Will; key 13; ), and the Hanged Man (Noel; key 12). The Emperor - key 4, letter 5 - Heh/Hei/Hay; first of 12 simple Hebraic letters; representing the window of transparency - admitting light (knowledge) and air (Spirit) - into the house of personality (of Beth - the Magician). The conventional usage for 'Heh' is the; that; or who.
Key 4: The Emperor - HEH
"Heh (H as in "honor," or E, value 5) is pronounced "hay." It means window," (literally, wind-door). A window admits light (knowledge) and air (life-breath, spirit) into the house (Beth) of personality. It also permits outlook, survey, supervision, control, and so on. Architecturally, windows are derived from doors. Furthermore, since they permit a survey of persons approaching a house, they enable the inhabitants of the house to decide whether to open the door to admit friends, or to bar it against enemies. The most important thing about a window is transparency, and this takes us back to the mode of consciousness attributed to the Magician.
"Sight is the sense function attributed by Qabalists to the letter Heh. Vision, inspection, reconnaissance, watchfulness, care, vigilance, examination, calculation, analysis, induction, inquiry, investigation, and the like, are all associated in language. All depend largely on the sense of sight. Thus we may expect to find the mode of consciousness associated with this letter one which is active in these kind of mental operations."
"Constituting Intelligence is the name given it in the Hebrew Wisdom, and it is said to "constitute creation in the darkness of the world." To constitute is to make anything what it is, to frame, to compose. Constitution is closely related to authorship. The author of anything is its producer, originator, inventor, founder, begetter, generator, architect, and builder. Authorship is therefore closely connected in our thought with paternity, and paternal authority depends on the fact that the father is head and founder of the family.
"In this connection, it is interesting to find that the letter Heh, is employed in Hebrew precisely as we use the English definite article "the." The Constituting Intelligence is the defining consciousness.
"This shows us, first of all, that the Constituting Intelligence must be a variant of self-conscious mental activity, because to define anything is to name it, and we have already associated self-consciousness with Adam, the namer.Definition, moreover, limits, sets boundaries, circumscribes. It specializes, particularizes, enters into detail, makes distinctions.
"The qualities thus indicated are precisely those which enter into the making of a constitution for any form of society, and that constitution is the basic and supreme authority for its particular social organization. Thus the letter Heh, as the definite article, implies regulation, order, law, and all related ideas. Laws are definitions, and it should always be borne in mind that what we call "laws of nature" are simply definitions or descriptions of a sequence of events in some particular field of human observation.
"What is even more important for the occultist and the psychologist is that our personal definitions of the meaning of our experiences constitute suggestions which an accepted, without reservation, by our subconsciousness. Thus, in a sense, every man makes his own law, writes the constitution of his own personal world, and finds that his life-experience is the reproduction of that constitution through the working of subconscious response.
"Heh is the first of the twelve "simple" letters of the Hebrew alphabet, so called because each has but a single pronunciation. To it is attributed the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, the Ram."
Just as one of the Emperor's most potent relationships is with the Magician - Key 1 - (Strength, the Hermit and the Tower being two particularly important others) the Emperor's Hebraic letter Heh is first of the 12 (zodiac connection below) simple letters.
"Aires is a fiery, cardinal sign. It governs the head and face. It is ruled by Mars, significant of force, strength, energy, courage, and activity. Mars rules iron, steel, surgery, chemistry and military affairs."
"Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter [/sword]." - Revelation 9:15
"In Aries the Sun is exalted, or raised to its highest level of power. The Sun has to do with health and vitality. It is the significator of high office, and of positions of rank and title, so that it represents rulership and authority. It also stands for the Ego, or individuality, in one's natal horoscope. Its metal is gold.
"Aires is a scientific and philosophical sign, and this agrees with what has been said concerning the Constituting Intelligence, inasmuch as both science and philosophy have accurate definition as their basis. Astrologers say Aires represents rulership, government, guidance and leadership."
"North-East is the direction attributed to Heh. These directions are given in The Book of Formation, and have to do with a very important esoteric teaching, in which the manifested universe is represented as a cube, shown in occult diagrams with its western and southern faces visible to the observer."
The three major monotheistic religions - Judaism, Christianity, & Islam - all have the cube as a central theological/mystical symbol: the Cabalistic 'cosmic-cube,' the cross which can fold into cube form, and the cube around which millions of muslims pray and circle year-round.
"The six faces of this cube and its interior center are assigned to the seven double letters of the alphabet. The three interior co-ordinates correspond to the three mother letters. The twelve boundary lines represent the twelve simple letters.
"The letter Heh, which we are now considering, is assigned to the vertical edge of the cube, which is the point of junction between the eartern and northern faces, connecting the northeast upper corner with the northeast lower-corner."
"In one sense the Emperor represents the Grand Architect of the Universe, the Ancient of Days. He is the supreme NOUS, or Reason, the constituting power, alike of the great world and of the little, of the universe and of man.
"Psychologically, therefore, he represents the self-consciousness of man, when its activities are engaged in the work of indictive reasoning whereby errors arising from superficial interpretation of experience are overthrown. He is the definer, the lawgiver, the regulator. He is the ruling mental activity in human personality. He frames the constitution of your personal world."
My second tarot reading was performed on a newer deck called the 'Devient Moon' tarot set: styled with symbols specialized to denote the dark dimensions of our subconscious region; to develope some balancing insight(s) into our conscious-centered perspective. This reading, performed with my brother on the night of a full moon in the same room, upon the same model as my first reading, signified 'Strength' (key 8; 9'th Hebraic letter - Teth - representing the snake [unwinged serpent]) as the primary subconscious force underlying my imperial consciousness. The Emperor is nothing without Strength (- see Penguin Dictionary of Symbols, Emperor).
"Teth (Th, as in "the," also T, value 9) means "snake," sumbol of what has been known among occultists for ages as the "serpent-power."... It is the astral light of Eliphas Levi... It is cosmic electricity, the universal life-principle, the conscious energy which takes form as all things, and builds everything from within. The control of this energy in its subhuman forms, by mental means, is the primary secret of practical occultism.
"The serpent also symbolizes secrecy, subtely and wisdom. Thus, in the allegory of genesis, the tempter is a snake, and the devil is called the "old serpent." This serpent-power is the source of illusion, and this the "father of lies." Yet, when it is overcome, it becomes the instumentality of salvation. Again, because the ancients observed that serpents cast their skin, the snake was taken to be a type of reincarnation, regeneration and immortality.
"Taste is the sense, and digestion the function, assigned to Teth by Qabalists. Literally, digestion is "feeding," and this recalls the familiar serpent biting its own tail, which we have seen in the picture of the Magician. The serpent-power feeds on itself. That is, it is self-sustaining. Scientifically this is correct. The sum-total of the universal conscious energy remains ever the same. It enters into various forms of expression, and these feed on one another."
"North-Above, the direction assigned to Teth, is represented on the Cube of Space by the upper boundry of the northern face, which is the point of junction between that face and the top of the cube... These are the lines corresponding, respectively, to Key 4, the Emperor, and Key 11, Justice."
Virgos are known for sharing sometimes unwelcomed expressions/opinions: some friends and family have at times expressed anger and resentment with my pursuit after revealing the proof for God - calling me pretentious merely for persisting in my position. This adversarial ridicule does nothing but fuel my motivation to spread the truth. Jesus once explained that the friends and family of one who embraces God will, atleast initially, not accept his/her newfound purpose; many from Siddhartha to Paramhansa Yogananda have experienced this.
"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:" Eph 6:17
"I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." - Jesus
In the legend of King Arthur Penndragon, the magician Merlin constructs the legendary sword-in-the-stone so as to create a new Kingdom - via a fufilled legend's capacity for revolutionary potential (whoever has the strength to 'uproot' the sword from the stone is destined to be King). This classic story is a mythogical symbol for the universal 'Hero's Quest': in tarot, the 'Magician' represents the free(ly-willed)-mason, building his house (of personality) - a symbolic house ('of the rising sun'; 'Morning Star') built for the coming Kingdom. The Magician is most significatnly connected with the Emperor card (with whom s/he shares a 'mystic identity') - who represents a window in the magician's house: a window admitting light (knowledge) and air (wisdom), and the security of seeing whoever may approach. Arthur clearly represents the Emperor required by Merlin's - the 'Magician's' - crafty work. The house of personality is the 'House of the Rising Sun' - a polis caught in cycle of polarity naturally developes the one they call the 'Morning Star.'
"The primary acceptance of magik is that this world is an illusion. Humanity is a false construct, built by a Demiurge, a false god, to prop itself up. This is the primary error of Consensus, as what must be broken, in a final and devestating fashion, through magik." - Aeolus Kaphas
Jesus of Nazareth claimed to bring humanity 'not peace, but a sword' with which to slay suffering and earn salvation: His crucifixion amidst the storm appears as if God the Father weilded Mother Nature's power to strike a sword down into the earth, leaving the 'lightning-path' of the Son's illumination behind it. The image of y/our cosmic savior suffering upon this cross dug into the earth is directly symbolized in Merlin's 'sword-in-the-stone': the one(s) who are able to recover this 'sword' from the 'stone' - the Word of God from the carnality of Earth - will inherit the Kingdom. Christ was the s/word: the exclusive omnipresence.
The Emperor is the definer of truth: which is why he is also connected deeply with the Hermit card - the isolated, solitary bringer of light who stands atop the mountain with his firey lantern of illumination (bearing the 'Star of David' - "as above so below" - symbol) to guide the paths of those still climbing. The Hermit's relationship with the Emperor comes back full circle with the Hermit's position in Virgo - ruled by mercury, which is symbolized by the Magician. The Magician's freely willed masonry fuels the Kingdom's construction; the true Emperor of exclusive 'light' takes responsibility over his Polis by defining the Word of God in terms of the Hermit's illumined isolation.
Wheel of Fortune - Key 12 (Kaph)
Signifies a human's grasping hand: to grasp intellectually - comprehend; master. Poindexter means closed right fist: as in willing to fight back. It also means skill and dexterity with hand-craft (free-masonry - freely-willed construction of the Kingdom [particularly signified in the all-seeing eye pyramid]).
"Every effect is the consequence of preceeding causes, and the better we grasp this law of sequence and cyclicity, the greater our command over subsequent events. There is periodicty in everything."
"Reality, which, so to say, remains permanent in contrast to the flux and reflux symbolized by the turning wheel. That which was, is, and shall be remains ever the same in itself, and the whole sequence and rotation of events goes on within it."
"Years ago, one of the Theosophical Masters declared that the system of six circles, tangent to a central seventh, is a key to the constuction of the cosmos." - Case
[Satan looks into the mirror of reflective reasoning and, perceiving a reverse image of him/her-self, was fooled into believing that s/he his/her-self - as opposed to God or any other - was 'like the most high.' 6 (Satan) + 6 (his reverse image) appearad as 12 in polarity; whereas 5 (human) + 7 (God) = 12 in Logos. 6 and 7 make unlucky 13 - only man (5) can achieve proper union with the absolute (which consistently contains 6).]

In tarot the Moon is symbolized by the Hebrew letter Qoph - meaning the 'back of the head':
"These parts of the brain are related to the functions of human personality which man shares with the rest of the animal kingdom."
""Head," moreover, means "chief," in Hebrew as in English; and in the sequence of the Hebrew alphabet, the letter Qoph, "back of the head," precedes the letter Resh, which means "Head, or countenance." This, in the series of letters Qoph is acutally behind, or back of, Resh, the Head. Qoph therefore represents what comes before the dominion and rulership of which the word "head" is a symbol. This is true, also, of the occult meanings of Qoph, which relate to states of consciousness anterior to perfect control, and leading thereto.
"Sleep is the function assigned to Qoph. Sleep is the period of physiological repair, during which the cells of the body undergo subtle changes which make the advancing student of occultism ready to experience and understand facts and phenomena concealed from ordinary men. These facts are the experiential basis of Ageless Wisdom."
The Sun Card
"Resh means the head and face of man. In the head are gathered together, or collected, all the distinctively human powers. The word "countenance," in fact, is derived from a Latin verb meaning "to hold together, to contain." Again, the head of any project is its organizer, director, guiding power, manager, controller. Thus we may expect to find in the symbols of Key 19 plan intimations of authority and leadership."
"The Sun is the heavnely body corresponding to Resh. We have found it exalted in Aries (Key 4, The Emperor) and ruling Leo (Key 8, Strength). It is the power which reaches its highest manifestation in reason, and which always and everywhere is the ruling force which makes effective the law symbolize by Strength."
"The Sun causes all growths, but it also makes deserts."
"Collecting or Collective Intelligence is the mode of consciousness. To collect is to assemble, to bring together, to combine, to unify, to embody, to synthesize. The Collective Intelligence concentrates all the modes of consciousness which have gone before, and combines them together in a new form. This it is a regenerative mode of consciousness, incorporating all the elements of control in a new realization of personality."
"It represents the truth that the seemingly material forces of nature really are modes of a conscious energy, essentially human in character and potencies.
"Whoever finds self is worth more than the world." - Jesus
The World Card (Tav)
"Dominion and Slavery is the pair of opposites attributed to Tav. Right interpretation of the necessity for limitation in any form of manifested existence is the secret of dominion. Wrong interpretation of the same thing is cause of our slavery to conditions. The clue to the right understanding is the aphorism, "He who would rule Nature must first obey her laws."
"Administrative Intelligence is the mode of consciousness attribute to Tav. This is consciousness of active participation in the cosmic government. It is entry into the kingdom of haven as a fully enfranchised citizen, charged with full responsibility for the execution of its laws."
"The World is the commoner title. Sometimes this Key is named "The Universe," to indicate that the consciousness it represents is not merely terrestrial, but truly cosmic."
"Here [on the World Card art] they [infinity symbols; sideways 8's on the Magician and Strength Cards' art] are red, to suggest that the law symbolized by Keys 1 and 8 [Magician & Strength] has been carried into action. The similarity between them, and their positions, suggest the Hermetic axiom, "That which is above is as that which is below."
"The dancer represents the merging of self-consciousness with subconsciousness, and the blending of these two with superconsciousness. Occult tradition says that the scarf, violet in color, and shaped like a letter Kaph, conceals the fact that this is an androgyne figure. In this highest form of conscious experience all sense of separate sex is lost, along with the extinction of the sense of separate personality. The Dancer is the All-Father and the All-Mother. She is the Bride, but she is also the Bride-Groom. She is the Kingdom and the King, ecen as Malkuth, the Kingdom, is by qabalists called the "Bride," but has also the Divine Name ANDI MLK, Adonai Melek, Lord King."
"This key signifies Cosmic Consciousness, or Nirvana... The central fact of this experience is that he whom it comes has first-hand knowledge that he is in perfect union with the One Power which is Pivot and the Source of the whole cosmos. He knows also that through him the governing and directing power of the universe flows out into manifestation.
"Words fail to give any adequate idea of this seventh stage of spiritual unfoldment. We must leave it to your intuition to combine the suggestions of the picture with the meansing of the letter Tav. Here is a representation of what you really are, and of what the cosmos really is. The universe is the Dance of Life. The Immortal, central Self is you - That is the Eternal Dancer." - Case
In the Magician's House, the Emperor's Window admits light emanating from the Sun, to shine through the Hermit's Lantern, down onto the World's many mountains. How else for the Son to inherit his Father's Kingdom but to become His Holy Ghost - for the Fool to become the Sun & World (Mother Nature) via the Magician, Priestess, Empress, Emperor, & Hermit?
The only technically functional signification (however none the less nonsensical) for a theoretically functioning void would have to be a pre/non-existential - pre-absent; absolutely negative - state of reality: no dimension nor phenomena, nor for that matter any extension within which to contian the former, lies latent within the purely incomprehensible void. In order for the void to spontaneously manifest anything other than itself, it could only occur through the paradoxical nonsense of magic - causeless effects; really without explanation.
Everything comes from that source-state which is existence always-already in-itself - uniquely non-polar in that its conceptual opposite - the void - cannot co-exist with existence and must therefore be itself (void!): leaving existence to be itself also - everything everywhere. The latent polarity of existence becomes apparent only after the uniform zero-state passes into causal automation: then we proceed to see how every level of proportion & complexity within the omni-arching duality of being in-itself - with the one pole of uniformly static omniverse enveloping the other pole of finitesimal cosmic-causality polarized at every categorical level - reflects this spectral (bi-)polarity.
The idea that reality can be fundamentally paradoxical makes sense of nothing whatsoever. Russell and Wittgenstein thought that any claim to absolute truth is nonsensical: which is completely consistent considering that their absolute claim itself is made explicitly nonsensical by one's explicitly true existence - not-nothingness.
All others as one's potential incarnation has explicit [metaphysical] validity. If you and I are both omnipresent - one another's potential past or future incarnation - then the exclusive isolation of one's existence in-itself is simply reconfigured from the pluralist premise of a mutual exclusion of otherness into an exclusively all-inclusive omnipresence (presumably omnipotent). Once one is willing to face the facts, omnipresence possesses every possible self-utilitarian benefit as opposed to the dysjunctive division of realities set against realities. Omnipresence may make everyone else y/our potential past-future incarnations, but it also allows the potential for God to selectively incarnate into an omnipotently guided sequence of the choicest incarnations - a sequence which any presumably omnipotent omnipresence would lead blindly into through trial and error, progressively to the light of total self-realization.
Everything is you - 'as above so below': you have a higher and lower self, higher and lower being definied by potency of pain and pleasure yeilded as such. Your higher self knows whether or not it would want to experience you: and so long as you want to be yourself, as long as you think your pain has been worth your life, then of course i will come experience you, I love you and I need you to save us from pointless pain; whether that be through learning y/our lessons &/or reaping y/our fruits.
I, the self-realized, denounce my adversary, by proper identification, and embrace the eternal light of the Omnicluse as my - as the - omnipresent and omnipotent Spirit.
