The Propagandists: Gates Foundation and Cornell’s “Alliance for Science”

>

Cancer has its own propaganda bureau

 
 
 
 
Cornell’s “Alliance for Science” has literally zero to do with science and is in fact aggressively anti-science by any measure of scientific method. On the contrary, it is a corporate front group funded by the Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation, in turn, is 1. a tax dodge for big Microsoft shareholders, 2. an organization which coordinates corporate profiteering on the one hand with technocratic religious fundamentalism on the other. The Foundation works to coordinate the actions of these two groups for their mutual aggrandizement. Bill Gates himself straddles the two worlds of gutter profiteering and religious fanaticism.
 
This front group is perhaps the most clear-cut example of how corporate money can directly purchase propaganda under the name of “science” on university campuses, and how the STEM fraternity as a whole willfully, consciously, with malice aforethought shills for this massive academic fraud. It is an example of what the Mafia calls sticking up for Cosa Nostra, “Our Thing”. The average STEM cadre, and many post-graduate types in general, is completely ignorant about genetic engineering and GMOs but does know that a hard core of the fraternity is fanatically in support of this campaign, and that’s all these authoritarian followers need to know: It’s Our Thing. Much like with the culture war over vaccination, the idea of GMOs is being used as an organizational principle. The orchestrators of the campaign seek to organize the fanatics and fellow travellers: Proximately toward corporate goals, ultimately toward far-ranging eugenics and other totalitarian technocratic goals.
 
As a rule this propaganda group has been too cowardly to debate skeptics under circumstances where it doesn’t have total control and total license to lie. As a rule one prefers not to debate when one is lying and/or has a great preponderance of power. Since both apply in the case of corporate “science”, it’s not surprising that they’ve mostly dodged their critics.
 
Nevertheless it’s telling that even given the opportunity to use superior force to stomp truth into the ground with their well-amplified and professionally rehearsed lies, the pro-GMO activists are too cowardly to try. As always, they have no confidence in themselves or their lies except in places where they can act as pure thugs and direct shameless liars, like in comment threads.
 
The fact is that scientists and other technocrats find it harder than anyone to admit they’ve been proven wrong. In complete disregard of the many decades of failure and crime poison-based agriculture has racked up by now, the scientific establishment remains committed to poisonism. This displays the most extreme flat-earth fundamentalism of any cult ever.
 
 
Such systematic lies, propagated relentlessly on a global level, enlisting state of the art psychological techniques, bolstered by all that remains of the prestige and legitimacy of science, academia, and journalism, comprise the essence of propaganda, the culture and religion of the lie, whose theology permeates the scientism-technocracy cult to the core.
 
They don’t mind failure, lack of truth, outright lying. They feel no shame. This is because they believe as an article of religious faith that there’s no difference between power and truth. They intone with Hegel, “The powerful is the rational.” Their answer to Pilate’s question “What is truth?” is, “Whatever power can do.” They snarl with the Athenians at Melos, “The strong do what they can, the weak suffer what they must.”
 
This goes with their dogmatic denial that any variation in the state of something can add up to any value at all (for example, health vs. illness or injury) which should override their totalitarian will to manipulate and control as far as their technological capacity allows.
 
Power is truth, might makes right: This is the core fundamentalist tenet of all establishment STEM types. This is also why they can so easily subordinate themselves to temporal, especially corporate*, power.
 
They intend to use corporate and government power, up to and including the ultimate extremes of violence, to force their vision to become reality. They have faith that they will be able to do this. Thus they’re serene in their faith that they have possession of “truth”.
 
It matters not that today they do nothing but lie; here truth vs. falsehood is only a matter of mundane chronology. It will all become true in the future.
 
And the future also is now, since what really matters where it comes to GMOs, the Singularity, colonizing space, geoengineering, the rapture of nuclear war, is always the idea of these as this idea exists right now. These ideas are weapons of war and notes of religious certitude. The reality of these, the objective fact that none can accomplish any of the benefits claimed for it and can bring only destruction, is meaningless.
 
Force, power will be enough to make it all come true in the temporal reality, if this force wages war aggressively enough on behalf of these ideas and isn’t confronted with even more powerful opposing ideas whose own power is in their real Truth.
 
And history then will be rewritten to wipe out the prior temporal failure, and this too will cease to exist.
 
This is the propagandist’s role in this final war. This is the role of the corporate lie machine. Cornell University, as launderer of the Gates Foundation’s lies, provides a typical example, and one of the most extreme.
 
Conversely, the equal and opposite reaction is to confront the great machine of lies with the great movement of truth. The War of Ideas is one front of this Third World War already in motion, and one of the few fronts where humanity and Gaia already have the advantage if we can only organize the available forces. The physical war so far is predominantly on the fronts of biological and chemical warfare, and yet so few people realize it. This is the work of the propagandist. One of our first great tasks is to clarify this fact, proclaim it and drive it home to all of humanity, so that the idea of the fact is as clear and tactile as one’s street being under artillery bombardment.
 
Because physically, what’s already being perpetrated upon us is not far short of that. Spiritually we are 100% there.
 
 
*Scientists and engineers admire corporations above all because these pure sociopaths comprise the ultimate form of technocratic rule and the organization of concentrated power for the sake of power and nothing else.
 
For this latter reason corporations also comprise the ultimate organizational mode of Mammon, the fundamentalism of subordinating and reducing all of reality to money relations.

Ecological Thanksgiving

>

 
 
The Earth is a fount of great abundance.
 
Human ingenuity can render this fount even more abundant. Agroecology is the supreme example, the greatest human accomplishment.
 
Nature’s bounty augmented by human thought and labor provide all that humanity needs and all it can sanely want.
 
The only problem, ever, is human insanity, human depravity, which convinces itself it wants more than the abundant Earth ecologically offers. This has always been the source of all human evil and all human destructiveness. This insanity is pure nihilism, pure loathing of the womb and of oneself.
 
Temporarily aided by the one-off fossil fuel binge, this anti-human loathing of humanity and the Earth has been able to ramify itself in the form of the corporate-technocratic extreme energy civilization. As if their insanity and evil weren’t enough, they even whine that not everyone shows sufficient “gratitude”.
 
On the contrary, it’s these traitors against Gaia and humanity who incarnate the blackest ingratitude, the most capital treason, against all that this wonderful, beautiful, magical Earth has offered us. If only all people had been willing to live in peace, we could all know peace and happiness. But there are such vermin who refuse to live in peace, and humanity and the Earth will never know peace until Earth is purged of this infestation.
 
 
Ecological history will prevail, and Gaia shall impose the correction she always does in the end. Humanity can participate by building the abolitionist movement.
 
We can best live our thanks to Earth by propagating the necessary new ideas and building this movement. This is the great focus of human life for the next two centuries.
 
On this day of Thanksgiving we can thank abundant Earth and consecrate our lives to our gratitude. Earth is the basis of life itself. Only those who choose to march with death deny this.
 
There’s nothing left but to reclaim the land, build the soil, and fight for life. This is the only positive action left in the terminus of the extreme energy civilization where Politics is Dead.
 
This action is the expression of thanks, today and every day. This is the way to make every day a thanksgiving, and to prepare a world where humanity finally shall live its great gratitude in faith, every day, in all the peace, prosperity and happiness Earth’s abundance can provide. That’s why I write, in prospective thankfulness for this coming movement and this coming ecological peace.
 
 
Propagate the necessary new ideas.

No Gene, and No Individual (Fake People, Part Two)

Filed under: Agroecology, American Revolution, Scientism/Technocracy — Tags: , — Russ @ 8:37 am

>

 
 
(Part one.)
 
Here we refer to the false notion of the “individual”. This ideological concept is false in two ways.
 
1. There is no “gene” (“selfish” or otherwise). There is only DNA amid the four-billion-years-evolving genetic and cellular structure on the one hand, and on the other the combined holistic organism inextricably part of the ecology.
 
2. There is no “individual”. There is only the symbiotic bacterial-human collective organism on the one hand, and human society, the human community, on the other. The “human” part of this combined organism is dependent upon and interdependent with its bacterial counterpart, and both are dependent upon and interdependent with a healthy, intact, diverse ecology. This human being, a social primate as much as it is a combined organism, is as dependent upon and interdependent with the community as it is with the biodiverse ecology. And this community is dependent upon and interdependent with the ecology.
 
 
It’s clear that the only ideas which can be part of a human future are ecological, communal ideas and acts. All anti-ecological ideas and acts, most of all those redolent of the false and destructive notion of the “individual”, must be purged from our Earth if we are ever to make it back home.

The Anti-Spirit of Poison

>

Humans, get off our land, says the cult. Only corporate persons and elite technocrats are authorized personnel.

 
 
The most typical and extreme element of the great crisis of civilization and ecology is the technocracy’s campaign to pump maximal poison into our bodies, our environment, our food, water, air, and soil.
 
Poisonism is biological and chemical warfare. It drives toward the secular goals of disaster, profit, power, control, war. Unlike previous campaigns seeking domination, exploitation, enslavement of people, this campaign only wants to drive the people out. Capitalism’s attitude toward human beings is identical to that of the Nazis toward the Jews: One way or another, they’re supposed to just go away, permanently.
 
Instead of domination of people, corporate-driven productionism wants domination of land, resources, and genetics. The campaign drives toward the permanent eradication of everything that makes us human: The questing mind, our existence as part of the ecology, our community life, our ability to perform meaningful work for ourselves, our families, our communities, our physical and psychological well-being as healthy symbiotic organisms (in addition to afflicting us with cancer, birth defects, and other harms, poisonism wants to sterilize our microbiome).
 
Thus the industrial “food” disseminated by the corporate Feed the World paradigm is poison to us in every way including to our souls. This reveals how poisonism is a religious war. It becomes easier to understand the cultist drive to poison us when we understand that for the scientism religion poison is a sacrament. “I force you to eat poison because it’s poison” is the equivalent of “I believe because it’s absurd.”
 
The intrinsic authoritarianism of STEM types is mundanely careerist, but more profoundly it’s a manifestation of their religious statism and scientism. They worship the corporate technocratic state. This is why they define science as “the research and development of technologies which increase corporate power.” That’s the essence of the corporate science paradigm.
 
The cultists fear for the future of this technocracy, as they sense its physical and cultural unsustainability. The extreme energy system soon will run out of sufficient energy, and humanity increasingly realizes that this system meets no human needs but only destroys all hope for a human existence at all. Earthly and political upheavals threaten to destroy all that the technocrats worship. Therefore they seek an organizational principle, a way to bolster their own assurance and organize to crush humanity and Gaia. They’ve bet everything on the most typical and extreme manifestation of high-maintenance technology, the pesticide/GMO complex.
 
They politically and culturally organize according to the exaltation of the idea of this technology. Not the reality; the fact that pesticides and GMOs don’t work and are purely expensive, wasteful, and destructive is meaningless from this perspective of militant religious consciousness and organizing. That’s why pro-GMO activists are so impervious to evidence, that’s why they’re so shameless about endlessly regurgitating hundred-times disproven lies, that’s why STEM culture as such is primarily a culture of the lie. Their core faith is that given enough deployment of money, lab time, and ideological militance, they’ll empirically reach the point where, by brute force, they’ll be able to deploy enough poison to completely subjugate the Earth and humanity. This goal, this religious fantasy, they christen “science”, “truth”.
 
Thus “feed the world” via poison-based agriculture is the cult’s version of the miracle of the loaves. It’s the idea of the miraculous bread rendered earthly, provided magically by GMO/pesticides. This is really a decadent simulacrum of the Christian notion of the heavenly bread. In every way the “secular” scientism religion is an epigone of Christianity, a direct descendant of certain Christian tendencies as documented by David Noble in The Religion of Technology.
 
This sacralizing of poison is also their way of pretending, where necessary (for example, where they feed poison to their own children), that poison isn’t poison, even that poison is beneficial. They seek to substitute poison for heavenliness. Their cult is a metastasis of Christian snake-handlers and venom-drinkers. On this level they must believe that poison is not really poison. This is how they seek power and dominion, how they inflict poison (power) upon others while believing themselves immune. This is how they believe they experience specially “created” food, water, air, environment, which somehow has not been toxified by their poison onslaught. Yet at the same moment they exalt the GMO/pesticide food as the highest form of food and must ingest it as a sacrament. This is their test of strength, and just as with the Judeo-Christian god, so here they believe that those who falter, those whose “free will” isn’t strong enough to prevent cancer, have been judged and are rightfully condemned.
 
Thus we have the striving for a much greater, if more gradual, Jonestown anti-miracle.
 
For the scientism religion, descended from Christianity, the pesticides and transgenes are the equivalent of the body and blood of Christ, all the more to be exalted as these physically have been synthesized by the miraculous rituals of technological development. As always, the fact that these are shoddy products which don’t work and are only destructive is irrelevant from the militant cult perspective. They have their great leading idea and believe because it’s absurd. They’ve merely extended the mysticism of the Eucharist to the mysticism of the laboratory. The reality-based result is just as meaningless to them.
 
We reach the conclusion: For the scientism/technocracy religion and ideology, poison is a sacrament. Poisonism, the idea and deployment of the GMO/pesticide product, is the core sacrament of this religion, and fighting to maximize this deployment and its destructiveness of all of Gaia and humanity is the core organizational principle and goal of this religion.
 
To render this more tangible to the flesh, this religion’s anti-sacrament is literal poison, which is symbolic of its anti-miracle of corporate industrial food. The actual food is loaded with poison which gives us cancer and is intended physically to kill us.
 
 
While eventually Gaia shall put an end to this biological infestation which toxifies its environment, as she does for all other such vermin infestations, this may not come soon or comprehensively enough to save humanity. If we wish for a human future for our children and grandchildren, we must become fully ecological in every way including politically. This necessarily means organizing on behalf of humanity and the Earth to abolish poisonism, to abolish the scientism cult.
 
 
Help propagate the necessary ideas.

Monoculture is Biological Warfare

>

 
 
Life has embraced the Earth for billions of years. Gaia is a warm robe of effectively infinite colors, tints, flashes of light, sparks of form, all enfolding this globe, making it a home. This biodiversity isn’t ordered according to any reductive command but plays out the patterns of a much more complex, interdependent, cooperative, holistic order. This order just barely can be grasped at times by ecological science and chaos theory. Through these rare sciences we can learn just enough to understand how little we can ever truly know, and how this little is more than enough for all our needs, enough to power all the desires of our souls. This is the way humanity can truly, finally live, and this is the only way humanity can live.
 
Therefore the great imperative of the Leviathan, the corporate technocratic state, is to clear the land and divide it into squares. It must completely subjugate the natural abundance, the great polycultural diversity, the ecological order, the non-linear Gardens our legends have called Eden among other things. The corporate state must devour this all, turn abundance into scarcity, life into death. It must turn the entire Earth into a desert.
 
This is the monoculture control imperative. By now this imperative suffuses all of modern civilization and dictates nearly all its actions and the actions of all significant groupings of civilized people. It can be seen and analyzed most clearly in the sector of food and agriculture.
 
Consider the leveling, homogenizing, sterilizing control imperative which dominates the entire ramification of this system. A lab generates uniformly engineered, cultured, and patented plants. This further concentrates a crop breeding system dedicated to narrowing the genetic diversity of all crop varieties to as close to monocultural uniformity as possible. The seeds of these narrowly engineered crops are increased on strictly regimented plots under a tightly controlled number of growers operating according to stringent guidelines under severe economic constraints dictated by patent-holding corporations and monopsony buyers. These seed companies themselves are owned, regimented, controlled by the seed cartel. They sell the monocultured seed to a homogeneous set of industrial farmers. These farmers operate under draconian rules starting with the seed contract and proceeding through the exacting roster of rules imposed by banks, government subsidy dispensations, and the monopoly sellers of chemical inputs. The farming process itself seeks total domination and control of the soil and everything on it, including the eradication of all unauthorized life forms. If the farmer deviates from the rules and rituals in any way he and his family become unauthorized forms to be driven off. The entire process is a strictly controlled authoritarian regime of poisons, machinery, and dollars. Preparation, planting, growing, and harvest are rigidly choreographed according to poison schedules and mechanized routines. This continues through the strictly disciplined sale to the commodifiers who process and transport the agricultural commodity according to punctiliously laid out patterns existing within a claustrophobically small and confined space which otherwise would be as big as the globe.
 
Once the mono-logic of the money and power flows has been played out, the afterthought of turning some of these commodities into food also plays out according to stern monocultural rules. Much of the commodity enters homogeneous animal feeding factories to produce assembly line meat, while another portion enters uniformly mechanized factories to produce uniformly mechanized processed food products. These “food” products then become re-commodities and again traverse the same unsparing monoculture of distribution, most of them to reach the homogenized retail paradigm of supermarkets and big box stores.
 
Thus we have the monoculture of corporate industrial agriculture and globalized distribution, based on technocracy and Mammon’s theological lowest common denominator of money, as controlled by this system’s primary organizational form, the corporate person. Here we have another monoculture aspiration. Technocracy already considers the corporate person to be the only true person, client, citizen. The system’s ultimate goal is to render this true in reality.
 
Therefore the vast monoculture of action is a monoculture of purpose. This civilization seeks a total monoculture of genetics, biology, economy, politics, culture, spirit. When we consider the profound homogenizing regimentation of our very food as we just described, it’s no surprise that the human beings to whom this industrial mono-product is dispensed tend to receive and ingest this food in a regimented way. Of the system’s many modes of wiping out human polyculture and inducing conformity and human monoculture, perhaps none goes deeper than its exercise of control through food.
 
This starts with simple physical control. Corporate technocracy induces the people to relinquish all food independence, all food security, in favor of complete dependency. For many this dependency reaches the point of absolute mental darkness, an actual belief that food comes from the supermarket, from the corporation, from the poison lab. The cultural and spiritual decay of diverse humanity to a standardized, dependent mass hominid then proceeds from there.
 
This systemic indoctrination is reinforced by the “feed the world” propaganda campaign. Superficially this campaign is about the allegedly helpless and starving masses of the global South. In fact all the claims of the propaganda, going back through the entire history of the “green revolution”, are proven lies. On the contrary, the people of the South comprise the great preponderance who still are providing food for themselves. This is why they’re the primary target of the corporate agricultural system. The people are targeted for economic liquidation and physical cleansing from the land. The great Southern ecosystem of human and ecological polyculture is slated to be eradicated, the land scrubbed sterile and portioned out into squares.
 
Feed the World is war propaganda. Corporate technocracy’s war aims are similar to those of its forerunners, the Nazis: driving the despised groups out of the economy, Lebensraum, Humanfrei, empty space, absolute monoculture. The campaign of corporate agriculture is a campaign of biological imperialism. Its first goal always is to drive vast numbers of people off their land. This cleansing is accomplished through economic coercion reinforced by violence wherever necessary. (The palm oil wars in Indonesia, Honduras and elsewhere, with “conservation” NGO shills in tow, comprise a typical example.) This is a biological cleansing which transcends all ethnic cleansing. It’s a complete human cleansing without regard to politics, religion, culture, all of whose diversity the system seeks to eradicate. Only the rite of money as prescribed by the theocracy of Mammon can identify one as part of the system. This identification as well, being nothing but conformity to fundamentalist ritual, is monocultured.
 
Then the natural polyculture of humanity is bulldozed, leveled, crushed, paved over. Everywhere the people are driven into the monoculture of the ghettos, the shantytowns. This is where all culture and spirit are driven to die. This form of concentration camp is the midway goal of money and of the corporate technocratic system. But it’s not the end goal, not according to the corporate personhood logic, and not according to the logic of poison-based agriculture and a system based on poisoned food.
 
This proximately is what “feed the world” means. That’s the war aim, to drive out all people, all wildness, all physical and genetic diversity. The Earth is to become nothing but commodified spaces and concentration camps. The polyculture of humanity is to be reduced to one shantytown monoculture, non-culture, non-spirit, non-politics.
 
But even more profoundly than this, the ultimate target of Feed the World propaganda is the mass of Western conformists themselves. They’re led to sense that in their dependency and insecurity, only their total conservatism and conformity can hope to sustain the extremely fragile, vulnerable, unsustainable industrial food system so that it can keep feeding them. Their rejection of GMO labeling is just one lesser example of this don’t-rock-the-boat conservatism. A greater example is their continued religious faith in the regulatory model. Only this conformity, they believe, can save them from being driven into the far more abject and miserable conformity of the tent cities and ghettos, urban and rural, for years now ramifying across the American scene. Here in the middle class West they see more and more of their neighbors economically destroyed and driven hence. The corporate technocracy and its media ministry enforce the fear.
 
 
Throughout human history, up until the modern era of extreme energy consumption and high-maintenance technology, the great polyculture of peoples lived according to a natural order, place, and unity. With the rise of capitalism and technocracy and the total victory of the enclosure movement, the historical order and unity have been broken. The goal of the corporate monoculture onslaught is to destroy all human diversity, and all sense of place, unity, control for each group amid this polyculture. Humanity must extrude the new movements to rebuild the polyculture and abolish the corporations. We abolitionists of poison agriculture strive to abolish for reasons of the physical health of humanity and the greater ecology, and for spiritual reasons. We must restore the lost unities amid diversity, the lost places and lands, the lost self-control, self-determination, freedom. We need the will and resolve to continue building the community food sector, the civilization of food sovereignty, the necessary transformation to agroecology. Perhaps we must start at the primal mammalian scale at first, small among the dinosaurs. But eventually and inevitably the renaissance we generate shall inherit the Earth as we restore ourselves to our rightful place within the infinite ecology of Gaia.

The Age of the Earth

Filed under: Agroecology, American Revolution, Climate Crisis, Peak Oil, Scientism/Technocracy — Tags: — Russ @ 6:07 am

>

 
 
The Earth is home. For all our human purposes the Earth is the universe. The Earth is our entire home, and our only home. All social ideas are grounded in this truth. All traditional religions agree upon this as well. Attempts to find the heavens in the “up there” are misreadings. The Bible is unequivocal: The New Jerusalem is supposed to descend to this physical Earth, and heaven is nowhere but upon this Earth. The same is true from every other point of view.
 
 
 
 
Among all religions only scientism consistently despises its home and provider the Earth. Thus, in addition to its many other evils and idiocies, scientism constitutes the most extreme and despicable ingratitude. All human beings agree this is the worst of sins and the most ominous of traits.
 
 
 
 
For the great majority of us home is a particular foodshed. Only a handful of people are born travelers. The vast majority of migrants are those cast adrift by corporate-driven economic coercion, or by the spiritual and cultural homelessness generated by the technocratic civilization. Part of the great and necessary ecological transformation is our return home to the Earth in the most spiritual sense of learning again to be part of our foodsheds. In the end communing with the Earth through our mode of food is the most direct form of our spiritual communion with the Earth and with ourselves as a whole. Only through the Earth can we become human again.
 
 
 
 
It’s a measure of the decadence of the alienated civilization that “Earth Day” is cordoned off as a discrete holiday. As if we all don’t live at the complete sufferance of the Earth every moment of our lives. As if all the grand towers and fortresses and mausoleums of our civilization, and all our technological self-deification, don’t exist at every moment in an ICU, hooked up and dependent upon every machine while we simultaneously do all we can to pull all the plugs.
 
This self-driven campaign, too, is part of the Earth’s kinesis.
 
 
 
 
Western myth begins with the image of a woman with child in the heavens, the Greek wisdom Sophia, fertility and wisdom. We find the great wisdom at the roots of creation where we say our God as well found it. Her child and the Earth come into being simultaneously along with various notions of an evil dragon. This monster often has been mistaken as Sophia’s misguided creation. This depicts the primordial vision of dialectical conflict unto creation.
 
Human history is the story of the preparation of the Earth for humanity and humanity for the Earth. Before this preparation is complete the Earth must undergo its time of tribulation, first the ravages of the kamikaze campaign of extreme energy consumption, then the unfathomable volatility and turbulence of this era’s collapse and self-immolation, as all the pent up potential, all the physical and spiritual heat and poison this kamikaze civilization has emitted, reaches Kinesis.
 
The time has reached such an extremity of alienation and confusion that few on Earth can read the signs in history and nature, and so humans have conjured religions to interpret the signs. Few have the vision to recover the lost wisdom of the woman who had to flee into the wilderness. But this wilderness is nothing but the fertile Earth, tending itself and waiting for humanity to end our destructive self-exile and come home to our creative work.
 
The visions of the woman Sophia spangle the heavens with the sun and moon and stars. We project these from Earth. As the final star descends, the morning star, its light shall gather all other cosmic lights in itself and glorify them as they continue to shine upon Earth.
 
Light and sight finally shall be liberated here, as we finally understand the mysteries. The new civilization shall prove with light that the only night was in the benighted minds of men. In the new city there shall no longer be the day vs. night of the mind. The sun and moon and stars shall shine on Earth as before. This shall be the final end of all artificial hate, greed, lusting for power and control, spiritual homelessness. All that’s ecological shall continue the cycle, now fully in harmony, transcending all distinction of natural and artificial, purging all that is anti-ecological and living as one amid the Earth’s now exalted ecology.
 
Thus the trial of perdition, the final judgement of the fossil-fueled technocratic derangement (veritably a malign ghost, a resurrected fossil of evil, a summoned demon), shall be complete, the mystery shall be solved, and from there all which is, was, and is to become, shall become, and shall be, and shall become forever more. The tree of life cycles forever through the twelve seasons, bearing its twelve fruits, and all human stewardship of Earth shall fruit in harmony. The water of life is a river which flows forever, and as Greek wisdom has it no one may step twice into the same stream and yet it remains always the same stream.
 
The great vision comes of the air at break of new day, and all creation sings its new song for the new city. There still must come tribulation from the air. The air of the day must gather and pressurize the power of the heated winds, heated by the oily bonfires of Babylon. When they shall be loosed, as the fossilized technocratic empire loses control, the Kinesis will rage while the vision of the temple and the ark ranges the sky forecasting the flesh and blood and stone of the new city which shall descend. This is the word from air to earth and sea. But there is a tiding of the thunders which shall remain untranslated until the final descent of the city, whence this too shall resolve to a rainbow.
 
Fire is the great inspiration, fire is the great symbol of tribulation raging as wildfire across the visions, fire is the destructive force Babylon’s bonfires unleash to scourge the world as the empire loses control. Fire shall consume Babylon itself. Fire is the symbol of the ultimate sundering of those who refuse the last call to come home. But as the new heaven will establish upon this earth, so all of hell has been on this earth and shall continue in the voids within the self-damned. Thus the ultimate fire has been in the minds of men, their raging violence, and so the future lake of fire shall be the soggy ashes in the dead souls of those who refused.
 
The creative fire is the new light of the new city. Earth has been cradle and romping ground and home for mind, and shall now resume as home for the soul.
 
The river of life leads the song now sung by all the creatures of creation. The river shall flow forever in the new city, and throughout the new heaven and earth. The ocean, primal residue on Earth of the primordial waters before life itself, shall be resumed into these waters. The river still flows on Earth, still flows to the seas that girdle the Earth. All soon shall be cleansed and purified to become as holy water, suffusing Earth as rain and river and sea. These shall bless our crops forever bounteous, shall redeem and restore the ecology of Earth, Garden of Eden, Gaia.
 
But first the age must undergo a great tribulation of water. Babylon sprawls upon many waters and its crimes and poisons surge forth. It shall be destroyed by literal and spiritual tsunami. Humanity must rise up to abolish the poisons and poisoners. The great ecological preparation requires this affirmative act of agency, and Earth shall not forgive passivity on this point.
 
And so humanity and Earth meld, as artist and material, material and artist, to establish a new heaven and a new earth on this very soil. This is the consummation of creation, its transformation. This is the revolution and restoration and Renaissance. Humanity and Earth plant the tree of life in this very soil, and secure the foundations of the walls of the new city upon this very rock, the rock of Earth beloved unto all time by all human gods, and our home of Humanity unto all time.
 
The only God is God of the Earth. And let it be blasphemy and the mark of evil to say this Holy Rock is not home, and that “we”, meaning a handful of mean and stupid boot-lickers and slave-drivers, still seek a new home somewhere beyond this earth.
 
Humanity has a mission throughout this trial. We must work to prepare the Earth and to start building our new city. This is our part in the transformation of creation. We must liberate the Earth, for this is preparation and transformation. We who are called to this mission must work and endure in harmony Earth’s power and the human will transmuted to God’s will which shall bring us through to victory.
 
Paradise is of this Earth. It now shall be established in the flesh and stone and spirit of the true civilization, the Ecotrinity of God and Humanity and Earth. We will finally know how to use mind and soul in harmony to work amid Gaia’s ecology in harmony. The greatest sin was to embrace the primal sundering, the alienation, the exile. This is what Jesus called the sin against the Holy Spirit. This is the sin that cannot be forgiven because only a willfully sundered soul, in all its the deluded depravity, can forbid itself to repent, forgive itself and come home. These who willingly bear the mark of the beast refuse to do so, and so cannot return, and must try to prevent all return by force. This is their main political, economic, ideological, and anti-ecological campaign today.
 
Paradise is of this earth. The Ecotrinity, and the ecological state of mind and soul which accompanies it, is the great and rising idea and spirit at this climax and tribulation of the modern fossil-fueled, corporate demon-ridden, propaganda-exhorted derangement. The false idea of “man vs. nature” is dead and dying, and the false “dominionist” religion, in both its traditional and secular forms, dies with it.
 
The tree of life shall extend its redemptive roots throughout the soil of the newly conceived Earth. Its twelve seasons of fruit shall symbolize the great prosperity of humanity and Earth in the new day. The waters of the river of life shall suffuse all the springs and rains and flows and deep blue seas of the new Earth. Our children and crops and all the plants and animals shall drink of these holy waters.
 
According to scripture the new city shall not contain a temple, for all Earth shall be a temple. And finally we shall understand what it means to say our bodies are temples. Finally we shall resume living as temples, no longer as coffins. And what we build shall be the bowers and wreaths of these temples, no longer tombs.
 
We shall resume our true heritage as our spirit spreads from the new city’s model point of light to embrace and combine with the light of the entire Earth. That’s the great promise and goal we aspire to on Earth Day. It commands us to make every day Earth Day, and then for this great aspiration simply to be the living work of each and every day.
 
This is the movement humanity must build. The Earth is calling us home.

For An Introduction, Poison vs. Evolution

>

The law and culture of Gaia’s ecology is the framework for human citizenship on Earth. Civilization enhances ecology where it upholds this law and embodies this culture. Today humanity and ecology alike stagger as slaves in a wilderness, beaten and insulted by the barbarism of a civilization berserk in its rebellion against the very womb which feeds it. This is a civilization gone mad.
 
This madness is driven by humanity’s depraved creation of “corporate persons” and the exaltation of these entities as tyrants over all actual human beings. By any measure, religious or secular, this has been a summoning of demons, and for as long as humans believe in them and worship them the demons are real with incredible power for evil. The evil they’ve done has been devastating, and the evil they yet intend is unfathomable.
 
Today the true human and citizen of the Earth is a voice crying out from the wilderness of barbarism. Today there can be only one call: Prepare the way of the Earth. Because all which is sustained by the finite and fleeting fossil fuel hoard, the entirety of the fossil fuel civilization, its energy and agriculture, cannot be sustained. All must soon collapse and destroy itself forever. If the faithful remnant of humanity prepares nothing, builds nothing in anticipation, the final immolation will leave nothing but the ashes.
 
What is fossil-fueled corporate civilization doing to Gaia’s ecology? We humans have always modified our environments with predictable as well as predictably incalculable direct and reverberation effects. Indeed, the grammar which makes us tend to separate “the organism” from “the environment” is scientifically and philosophically wrong. There’s no such delineation. Organisms interact with and change and are changed by their environments, which are inextricable working parts of “the” environment as a whole. Each species is an active participant in its environment, a participatory citizen of this ecological polity, an integral action amid the vast commonwealth of the Earth.
 
But the modification which industrial civilization has been able to undertake, afforded by the one-off spending of our inheritance, the fossil fuel residue of billions of years of extremely refined sunlight, is at such a higher order of magnitude than the historical norm as to be qualitatively different from this norm. The “Anthropocene” scam is designed to absolve industrialization and capitalism of any absolutely unsustainable level of destructiveness, and to justify continuing with business as usual. But to leap from a thousand foot cliff is very different from undergoing a two foot drop.
 
What are we doing to Gaia, this Earth, our only womb and home for the rest of our human journey? The environmental chaos of climate change is already rending the Earth and will only get much worse. This is the thrashing of a body trapped in an oven while the temperature rises and rises and rises. The physical and psychological agony is profound, and the potential chaos can only become more kinetic in every way as the system is ever more energized by the embodied violence our fuel-burning and soil-ravaging corporate industry keeps pumping into it.
 
All the networked organisms of the ecological system are always reacting to changes in temperature, and climate change has always occurred naturally. The organic reactions generally sum up to relative stability over evolutionary time, and this is part of the process of evolution. This evolutionary process, in climate and ecology, would have proceeded naturally in recent centuries as well.
 
But where the change radically overleaps the dampening effect of evolutionary time including its many safeguards and diminishing feedback loops, especially where this radical change is combined with many other drivers of chaos and destruction, the network becomes overstressed as many component organisms find it difficult or impossible to adapt. Civilized humans, and people subject to corporate imperial civilization, are the most vulnerable of these organisms. The emission waste from the industrial burning of fossil fuels and destruction of carbon sinks (natural processes generate little or no waste) comprises an absolutely different order of magnitude and a qualitative difference in the speed and extremity of modern artificial climate change.
 
Those who deny this, who deny the time element of evolution’s process of simmering and adjustment, are the most irrational and destructive kind of evolution denier, far worse and more ignorant than religious creationist types.
 
(Whether or not a process generates waste, defined here as a by-product the ecological system cannot readily assimilate, is a criterion for distinguishing ecological vs. anti-ecological processes. The more usual attempt to distinguish “natural” vs. “artificial” is an unfruitful diversion. While as a rule there cannot persist a natural process which is anti-ecological, artifices can be ecological or anti-ecological. As examples of the latter, human-artificed industrial processes often produce massive, toxic waste. Agroecology is the best example of an ecological artifice.)
 
Industrial consumption of water, especially for industrial agriculture, and personal luxury consumption are rapidly depleting the fossil aquifers which originally filled over geologic time. This depletion proceeds in the same way we’re depleting the fossil fuel principal. Since the water cycle can recycle only a finite amount of water, far less than we use, the rest is effectively lost to us after at most a few usages as it empties into the oceans.
 
Those who deny this, or who deny fossil fuel depletion, are simply denying the very existence of geologic time. They blaspheme against the actual Gaian creation with the exact same mindset as those who believe the Earth is 5000 years old. They’re the Oil Creationists, the Water Creationists. Again, their version of creationism is the most ignorant, irrational, and destructive. We do indeed need an evolution education movement, and its main target must be the false teachings of those who deny evolution because of corporate and techno-cultist faith.
 
We are decimating Gaia’s biodiversity and habitats. At any ecological level, from the microscopic to the global, from the most pristine wilderness to agriculture (these are all interlinked and are divided here only into broad, convenient conceptual groupings), the more diverse and multi-linked the networks, the more resilient, robust, complex, adaptable, and therefore healthy the organic network is. As we started out saying, the network itself is a collective organism. By contrast, the more denuded and simplified the interconnections become, the more they become vulnerable, inflexible, calcified, maladaptive, inherently unhealthy and exposed to predation and disease.
 
There’s another kind of Creationist (usually the same person, of course) who believes there’s the water he poisons, and a “different”, separate, Specially Created Water which is reserved for himself, his kind, their families. Same for the air they poison and the Specially Created Air, the Specially Created Food, the Specially Created Soil, and in general the Specially Created Earth, which is different and separate from the Gaia these Poisoners ravage and are attempting to murder.
 
Indeed they are attempting universal murder by poison. The entire corporate industrial system has a poison mandate at its core. Its core goal is to supply poisons and generate, by force where necessary, markets for these and deployment of them. This has many metaphorical applications, but today I’m speaking in the most physical sense. Poison-based agriculture is the core activism of corporate globalization, and in the end the entire structure will stand or fall based on capitalism’s ability to sustain this poison imperative. The proximate goal is to destroy everything which lives on Earth, figuratively and physically, except what’s functional toward corporate domination.
 
We’re already seeing the physical ravages, as the ever-compounding poison load destroys human, animal, and environmental health. Everywhere these poisons are deployed we see the surge of cancer, birth defects, every kind of reproductive and developmental disease, neurodisease, allergies and other autoimmune disease, respiratory and digestive ailments, hormonal and neurotransmitter chaos, genetic damage, and myriad acute symptoms. All these are iterated at every scale, from the bacterial, where antibiotic-resistant pathogens are boosted, beneficial gut and soil bacteria suppressed; to the complex organic, where the networked diversity of life has more and more of its bonds frayed and broken completely as the poison load accumulates in organic tissues and, as an expanded mutation load, in the genes, as well as wreaking havoc with the endocrine, neurotransmission, and immune systems of organisms; to the global, as vast amounts of arable soil and groundwater are toxified, their microbial ecosystems decimated, the oceans are blemished with dead zones expanding from the great estuaries, as just the most visible leading edge of the oceanic toxification, and all the ecosystems which ramify from these are crippled by the poisoning of the foundation.
 
All environmental crises and all hunger on Earth are driven completely by globalization, and most of all by commodity agriculture. There is no human or environmental problem which would not disappear completely or be greatly mitigated if humanity were to abolish corporate industrial agriculture. And we would prosper in every physical, psychological, and spiritual way. The abolition of the corporate demons is the great necessity, preliminary to the great affirmative preparation of the Earth for the ecological human age to which we must evolve or perish completely.
 
Corporate industrial agriculture seizes all the best land, drives the people and their food production onto marginal lands and into forests, or else off the land completely into shantytowns. Corporate agriculture is the worst emitter of greenhouse gases and destroyer of carbon sinks. Along with industrial loggers it destroys the rain forests. It destroys the grasslands. It is dedicated to maximizing the use of poisons which toxify the soils, waters, air, and food. Poison-based agriculture is the worst driver of climate change, the worst destroyer of forest and grassland and all other habitats, the worst destroyer of biodiversity and driver of the modern era’s mass extinction, the worst poisoner of every element of the environment right down to our very bodies. Poison-based agriculture is pure evil, has zero purpose, zero rationale, zero redeeming qualities. It must be abolished completely. There is no goal as critical, no need as pressing, no imperative as severe. This abolition imperative encompasses all other goals, all of which are in line with it or would be meaningless without it. Only the parasite squatters on the planet’s surface, those who have renounced their ecological and therefore human citizenship, would dispute this.
 
Capitalist industrialization, globalization, corporate rule, scientism and technocracy, most of all where these crystallize as the Poisoner and monoculture campaigns of corporate industrial agriculture, systematically and willfully destroy all biodiversity and the entire basis of organic resiliency and health. This will to destruction and monoculture has always been characteristic of tyranny, but only in the modern era have the aspiring tyrants been able to deploy such destructive force with the hope of wiping out everything which is not under the most physical direct control and manipulation of the tyrants and their engineer lackeys.
 
In all these ways corporate barbarism pumps ever more potential energy into the system. It pumps its poison, its greed, its powerlust, its gluttony, its violence, its sadism, its hatred, its anguish, its despair.
 
This, most of all, is the joint assassination attempt upon humanity and the Earth being conducted by the corporate and techno-cultist Poisoners. Humanity must act in the same self-defense vs. this murder attempt as any intrepid individual or group would against any other.
 
They are cancer.
 
What do you do when you’re suffering heat exhaustion? First thing, you stop throwing fuel on the bonfire. What do you do when you’re dying of thirst in the desert? You stop pouring your water out onto the sand. What do you do when you’ve ingested poison and become violently ill? You stop drinking the poison. When you’ve damaged or destroyed so many of the things you depend upon for your very life? And all the things you love? You stop destroying, and start fixing what you broke. And you seek the antidote for the poison. And you drink salubrious refreshing water. And you douse the flames and welcome a cool breeze.
 
These are what humanity must do in order to save the Earth for our time and prepare for the next age, the age of Gaia, the ecological age. This salvation is necessary for the entire weave of life, but most of all for its most frayed, vulnerable thread – our own species. In the long run Gaia will recover from us and continue as she was, whether we save ourselves or not. But unless we take the necessary cooperative action now, we shall not be part of this recovery. As I’ve written of many times before, the first step toward ultimate destruction will be the full dominion of the corporations. This will be political tyranny and economic enslavement. But this will be followed shortly by physical death.
 
Let us change from this future. We start by changing our minds. From there, as Shakespeare wrote it, “All things are ready if our minds be so.” All the ideas, the entire system of reason, science, and morality, starting with agroecology and food sovereignty, are fully demonstrated and ready for the entire human and ecological deployment all over the world. All the resources for today and the future are available and waiting. All that’s been lacking is sufficient will and organization. All that’s lacking is the spirit, the faith, the action of faith.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 11th. The Beauty of the Revelation of Creation

>

.
.
.
This letter is an attempt to apply the forecasts and impressions of the Book of Revelation to our time.
.
1. Revelation 12 tells of the beginning as we can know it, the image of a woman with child in the heavens, the wisdom Sophia, fertility and wisdom. We find the great wisdom at the roots of creation where God too found it. Her child and the Earth come into being simultaneously along with the dragon. But this monster often has been mistaken as Sophia’s misguided creation. Primordial vision of conflict unto creation.
.
The preparation of the Earth begins. (Rev 12.14-16) Before it is complete it must undergo thousands of years of tribulation, which is given depiction in this book.
.
It reached such an extremity of alienation and confusion that none on Earth could read the signs in history and nature, and so God himself had to become human in order to do so. (Rev 5) None had the wisdom to open the book, the lost wisdom of the woman who had to flee into the wilderness. But this wilderness is nothing but the fertile Earth, tending itself and waiting for humanity to end its destructive self-exile and come home to its work. (Luke 15)
.
2. The vision of the woman Sophia spangles the heavens with the sun and moon and stars. As the final star descends, the morning star (Rev 2.28), the new city, its light shall gather all other cosmic lights in itself and glorify them as they continue to shine upon Earth.
.
There must first undergo tribulation the agony of sun, moon, stars. (Rev 8.12, 16.8-9) But final victory and redemption shall also be seen first of the air (Rev 19.17), as the model new city descends to earth carrying its own light of the sun in celebration of earth’s eternal sun.
.
3. Light and sight shall be empowered here, as we finally understand the mysteries. The New Jerusalem shall prove with light that the only night was in the benighted minds of men. (Let those who scoff desist from their lies and force themselves to speak truth for once in accord with what they must agree is the evidence and see what’s left of their doctrine.) Thus in the new city there shall no longer be the day vs. night of the mind. (Rev 21-2) The sun and moon and stars shall shine on Earth as before. The final end shall be of perdition (17.8), all else shall continue the cycle, now fully in harmony with the Spirit and living as one with God on his throne in the new city.
.
Thus the trial of perdition shall be complete, and the mystery shall be solved, and from there all which is, was, and is to become, shall become, and shall be, and shall become forever more. The tree of life cycles forever through the twelve seasons, bearing its twelve fruits, and all human stewardship of Earth shall fruit in harmony. (Rev 22.2) The water of life is a river which flows forever, and as Greek wisdom has it no one may step twice into the same stream. (Rev 22.1-2, 17)
.
4. The great vision comes of the air at break of new day, and all creation sings its new song for the new city. (Rev 5.9-13)
.
The new city needs no sun or moon, no heat, for its spiritual, thus natural, light and warmth. (Rev 7.16, 21.23-5, 22.5) It gathers these beacons of light and enhances them. This is the same nature as ever, the same sun’s same light and warmth, continuing to shine as ever, now transfigured by the consummation of unity with God.
.
There come and still must come tribulation from the air. (Rev 6.12-14, 7.1-3, 8.12, 11.6) The air of the day must gather and pressurize the power of the heated winds, heated by the oily bonfires of Babylon. (Rev 7.1)
.
When they shall be loosed (as the empire loses control) (Rev 9.15) the kinesis will rage while the vision of the temple and the ark ranges the sky forecasting the flesh and blood and stone of the new city which then shall descend. This is the word from air to earth and sea (Rev 10). But there is a tiding of the thunders which shall remain untranslated until the final descent of the city, whence this too shall resolve to a rainbow.
.
5. Jesus warns us, beware and renounce all gold which has not been tried in his fire. (Rev 3.18) Fire is the great inspiration, fire is the great symbol of tribulation raging as wildfire across the visions, fire is the destructive force Babylon’s bonfires unleash to scourge the world as the empire loses control. (Rev 7.1-3, 8.5-8, 9, 14.18-20, 15.8) Fire shall consume Babylon itself. (Rev 18) (Fire is the symbol of the ultimate sundering of those who refuse the last call to come home. But as the new heaven will establish upon this earth (21.1), so all of hell has been on this earth and shall continue in the voids within the self-damned. Thus the ultimate fire has been in the minds of men, their raging violence, and so the future lake of fire shall be the ashes in the dead souls of those who refused.)
.
The creative fire is the new light of the new city. Earth has been cradle and romping ground and home for mind, and shall now resume as home for the soul.
.
6. Revelation 22 sings the song of the river of life, the song now sung by all the creatures of creation. (Rev 5.13) The river shall flow forever in the new city, and throughout the new heaven and earth. (Rev 21.1) The ocean, primal residue on Earth of the primordial waters before creation (Genesis 1.2), shall be resumed into these waters. (Rev 21.1) The river still flows on Earth, still flows to the seas that girdle the Earth. All shall now flow from the New Jerusalem as holy water (22.1-2) and suffuse the Earth as rain and river and sea, shall bless our crops forever bounteous, shall redeem and restore the ecology of Earth, Garden of Eden, Gaia.
.
First there must undergo great tribulation of water. (Rev 7.1-3, 8.8-11, 11.6, 16.3-7). Babylon sprawls upon many waters and its crimes and poisons surge forth. (Rev 17.1,15; 13.1) But it shall be destroyed by literal and spiritual tsunami. (18.21)
.
Thus the water of life (John 3.5, 4.10-15) suffuses the new earth. (Rev 21.6, 22.17)
.
7. And so the New Jerusalem descends to this very earth, and God descends with it, to establish “a new heaven and a new earth” (21.1) on this very soil. This is the consummation of creation, its transformation. This is the revolution and restoration and Renaissance. God plants the tree of life in this very soil, and secures the foundations of the walls of the new city upon this very rock, the rock of Earth beloved unto all time by God and our home of Humanity unto all time.
.
God is God of the Earth. (Rev 11.4) And let it be blasphemy and the mark of evil to say this Holy Rock is not home, and that “we”, meaning a handful of Satanic slave-drivers, still seek a new home somewhere beyond this earth.
.
They shall insist upon tribulations of earth (Rev 7.1-3; 8.5-7; 9; 11.6,13; 12.9ff; 16.10-11; 18; 20), but as Humanity and Earth endure and fight through we shall understand all mysteries. (Rev 10.5-7)
.
Humanity has a mission throughout this trial. (Rev 2.3,10,13,19; 3.3,8-12,18-22) We must work to prepare the Earth for the coming of the new city. (12.6,14-16) This is our part in the transformation of creation. We must liberate the Earth, for this is preparation and transformation. We who are called to this mission (7.3, 7.14-17, 14.1-3, 19.1-9, 20.11-15, 21.27, 22.4, 14, 17) must work and endure in harmony Earth’s power and unto God’s will which shall bring us through to victory. (Rev 14.18-20’s dialectic of preparation and fire)
.
Paradise is of this earth. It always was, as Jesus tried to tell us so many times, and he left the Comforter to tell us as well. (John 14) And it shall now be established in the flesh and stone and spirit of the true civilization, the ecotrinity of God and Humanity and Earth. We will finally know how to use mind and soul in harmony to work amid Gaia’s ecology in harmony. The greatest sin was to embrace the primal sundering, the alienation, the exile. This verily is what Jesus called the sin against the Holy Spirit. (Mark 3.29, Matthew 12.31-2) This is the sin that cannot be forgiven because only the deluded depravity of a soul can forgive itself and come home, but these who willingly bear the mark of the beast refuse to do so, and so cannot return, forever if they will.
.
Paradise is of this earth. The ecotrinity, and the ecological state of mind and soul which accompanies it, is the great and rising idea and spirit at this climax and tribulation of the modern fossil-fueled, devil-ridden, propaganda-exhorted derangement. The false idea of “man vs. nature” is dead and dying, and the false “dominionist” religion dies with it.
.
The tree of life shall extend its redemptive roots throughout the soil of the new earth. Its twelve seasons of fruit shall symbolize the great prosperity of humanity and earth in the new day. The waters of the river of life shall suffuse all the springs and rains and flows and deep blue seas of the new earth. Our children and crops and all the plants and animals shall drink of these holy waters.
.
The New City shall not contain a temple (Rev 21.22), for God shall be its temple, and all Earth shall be a temple, and we shall finally understand what it is for our bodies to be temples. (1 Corinthians 3.16-17, 6.19-20)
.
Thus we as well shall inhabit the New Jerusalem as the Spirit spreads from the city’s model point of light, the throne of God’s abiding, to embrace the entire Earth. Amen.
.

Black Horse Chronicle, October 2nd

>

1. The only night was in the benighted minds of men. When we become truly enlightened, the moon and stars shall shine as the sun.
.
2. This new moon’s resolution is to describe the progress of the black horse of Mammon. In the fossil fuel Babylon all four horsemen of the revelation comprise the image of Mammon and the evil of Mammon, and also the revolution which must and will destroy Babylon and Mammon. This is the duality of the entire Book of Revelation.
.
3. The black horse rides before the beast who controls corporate buying and selling: Commodity. (Revelation 13) Commodification and all the evils which follow intentionally from its design – war, genocide, ecological devastation, famine, pandemics, mass death, infinite psychological alienation and spiritual desolation – is the primary manifestation of Satan today and of all times.
.
4. Jesus begins his career with his stark rejection of this great evil: “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give you, and the glory of it: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If you therefore will worship me, all shall be yours. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Luke 4:5-8)
.
5. Satan promises the same to those who worship him through his cult of technology. As anti-Christian heresy this temptation and corruption has existed for over a thousand years within the very folds of the faith.
.
6. Thus science worships at the altar of the beast, having fully and joyously surrendered and desecrated itself to the mark of the beast which controls the buying and selling.
.
7. How can we be redeemed? Jesus directly, unequivocally condemns the evil of Mammon: “You cannot serve God and Mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)
.
8. Yeah more, Jesus teaches us to “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.” (Mark 12:17) He follows immediately: “The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” (Mark 12:29-30) Therefore is there nothing left for Caesar. Thus whatever one gives unto Caesar and Mammon out of one’s heart is stolen from God.
.
9. Thus scripture makes clear that temporal power, the power of politics and money and weapons, and the temporal elections according to these, derive all from Satan. (Matthew 4:8-10, Luke 4:5-8) Temporal power is of the devil, as scripture implies and as Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor explicitly confirms: “We are not with Thee, but with him, and that is our secret! For eight centuries have we abandoned Thee to follow him. Eight hundred years now since we accepted from him the gift rejected by Thee with scorn; that last gift which he offered Thee from the high mountain when, showing all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, he saith unto Thee: “All these things will I give Thee, if Thou will fall down and worship me!” We took Rome from him and the sword of Caesar, and proclaimed ourselves sole rulers of the earth…We have taken the sword of Caesar, and in taking it, of course, have rejected Thee and followed him.”
.
10. Nor is this only the word of the Bible. All spiritual and philosophical paths agree, for this is a moral truth universal. It is proven also every day in every arena of moral and practical life. What one gives to Mammon is stolen from God, and from humanity, and from Gaia herself.
.
11. This condemns all levels of Mammon’s election, from the most mundane to the most (anti-)spiritual. You cannot serve God and Mammon. The Spirit, nor humanity, nor the Earth, cannot co-exist with Satan’s minions, the corporate person-demons, which in the fossil fuel Babylon comprise the organized form of Mammon and Satanism.
.
12. Jesus rejected greed and temporal power as temptations of the devil. But you, a low sinner, believe they’re appropriate for you? God is indeed patient with you.
.
13. There is no way forward in Babylon. Repent of this folly once and for all, and never look back. There is no past in Babylon, only emptiness. Revolve back to the true timeless spirit, which is also the spirit of the New Beginning.
.
14. For in the Spirit and Gaia and her revelation past and future and present exist in One, and exist as grace and beauty and happiness. But in Babylon all time is desecrated to evil and nothingness, and all space is poisoned, all spirit and all flesh. The Spirit calls upon us to redeem all or lose all.

The Elemental Falsity of Genetic Determinism

<

Today the establishment “life sciences” tread as epigones the same path of reductionism and mechanism which physics trode in the 19th century, the path which physics debunked and abandoned long ago. Social Darwinism, biological determinism, genetic determinism, sociobiology, this ideological complex never had any scientific validity and was demonstrably false even prior to its full congealment. Francis Crick’s aptly named “Central Dogma” was already known to be false at the time he promulgated it. The same was true of the foundation doctrine of “one gene = one trait”, which together with the Central Dogma comprised the ideological basis of biological determinism. This “science” was falsified in toto and in detail even prior to its full ideological elaboration in the 1970s. It has since continued as the greatest scientific fraud ever perpetrated. It’s not just that determinist theory is completely wrong – almost all of history’s scientific theories were disproven, and almost certainly most of those believed in today will be disproven. It’s that this “theory” has always been known to be wrong by its publicists, and yet they fraudulently go ahead anyway. Crick with his dogma of a one-way information flow from DNA to proteins when it was already known biological information loops back from proteins to DNA is just the most infamous of the countless examples of conscious lies on the part of these charlatan “scientists”.
.
In truth biological determinism is just the transcription of Randroid hyper-individualism and the “genius” delusion to the realm of pseudo-science. This junk science gets such a preponderance of funding and fawning mass media publicity because it’s a potent branch of capitalist propaganda.
.
Even in basic form, biological determinism is not scientific but religious. The “selfish gene” concept represents an extreme of animist superstition. All thoughts and feelings and aspirations and endeavors of humanity are said to be generated by a godlike homunculus in the gene. This is of course just another version of the vitalist “ghost in the machine”. At least vitalism had the virtue of being holistic in its outlook, and therefore to that extent in accord with bona fide science, which finds all phenomena to be ecological, networked, cooperative. Meanwhile monotheist religion at least posits an omnipotent cosmological deity. But the mysticism of genetic determinism envisions an infinite number of identically “selfish” ant-like deities in the genes. Presumably each selfish gene has to see itself as the one and only “real” gene, with all the others being replicants of itself and acting in obedience to itself. They’re not supposed to be commies, are they? Cooperating selfish genes sounds like a contradiction in terms. How do they agree to combine as chromosomes? It seems to me the truly selfish cells would be the cancerous ones.
.
Or maybe the selfish genes aren’t really so selfish and are supposed to form a collective deity, who knows? These cultists are extremely muddled about their science/theology.
.
It’s absurd in general to try to find the “cause” of ecological wholes in an arbitrarily chosen cherry-picked element. (Why the gene? Why not the cell, or conversely the DNA itself, or the bases of the DNA, or the atoms that comprise them?) Again, the point is to provide a pseudo-scientific support and justification for the delusional individualists who consider themselves to be “self-made”. Anyone with a shred of rationality or simple common sense knows there’s no such thing as being self-made. From our total prenatal and infant dependency to our ongoing if not always as directly obvious dependency throughout our entire lives, we all remain mostly dependent upon, or in the best cases interdependent and in cooperation with*, the ideas, institutions, and emotional communion with our artificial surroundings. No one is an island, and no one is self-made.

Of course individualism itself is a fully developed ideology which today’s sociobiologists and biological mechanists needed to have spoon-fed to them by the society they were born into. It’s part of the delusion when the likes of Dawkins and Wilson flatter themselves that they’re colleagues of Descartes or Hobbes, when they’re really nothing but the most derivative, conformist, mediocre epigones.

Imagine each brick that makes up a building seeing itself as the visionary, architect, and sole creator of the building. But perhaps our reductionists see themselves and their fellow geniuses as keystones, and therefore “better”? But what is a keystone without the other bricks comprising the structure? It’s then no longer a keystone, just a stone like the rest. Only the cooperation of all the bricks can render any one of them a keystone, while without the assembly there’s no such thing as a keystone.

Nor are buildings with arches and keystones necessary. If arches become too troublesome to maintain, all the necessary and sufficient structures can be built without a single keystone anywhere.

(We can extend the metaphor. What can the bricks do without the laborers to assemble them? And indeed some of these laborers see themselves as the architects and engineers, though they too would be no such thing without the laborers and the bricks. Here we speak figuratively of the general natural ecology within which the artificial is ensconced as one dependent and perhaps interdependent part. This displaces the individual brick, insofar as it maintains an individualist delusion, even further from this notion that it’s at the center of a universe which spins out only from it.)

This demonstrates how there’s no such thing as a necessary, let alone superior, individual. Either all human beings are necessary or none. But there can never be a superior individual in any positive sense.

Unfortunately it is possible for individuals to render themselves inferior in a negative, Socratic sense. When the oracle at Delphi named Socrates the wisest man in Athens he was confused at first, because he didn’t consider himself especially wise. But when he reflected that he at least recognized that his wisdom and knowledge were nothing special, whereas everywhere he looked he saw the pompousness and egotism of those who were just as ignorant and unwise but who labored under delusions of great wisdom and expertise, he realized that at least in this negative sense he was wiser than they. He, unlike they, recognized his limitations and interdependency.

Similarly, greed, competitiveness, hatefulness, lust to dominate, are parts of human nature, albeit minor parts – all the evidence is that humans are naturally cooperative. But it’s possible artificially to spur and maximize these, especially through malign institutions such as the competitive individualist ideology, including its pseudo-scientific manifestation. By willfully surrendering to the worst elements of human nature, giving these free rein, and trumping up an ideology to justify and proselytize for this sociopathy, there are those who render themselves beneath humanity. Our biological determinists, Social Darwinists, techno-cultists are classic examples.

This ecological statement is not a manifesto for sameness. That’s just another hackneyed individualist lie. On the contrary it’s they who seek to enforce monoculture everywhere from the crop field to the human soul. On the contrary, we are not bricks but human beings radiating an unlimited brilliance of feelings, ideas, personalities, hopes, aspirations, endeavors, as individuals and in cooperation. The human ecology celebrates this true diversity of the individuals who combine to form the great whole. The ecological philosophy denies only that any of these are better or more important than the others, let alone prior to the ecology. But the kind of mind which, the moment it perceives difference, must posit a hierarchy of better to worse, superior to inferior, is a poisoned mind, the victim and vector of poison.
.
For humanity there is no ontological better or worse. We can judge among ourselves according only to ecological reason, ecological science, ecological morality, which are the only real manifestations of these. And all our judgements are encompassed within the greater ecological whole of the Earth, its ecosystems, and its broader sunlit and sun-dependent home.

*The only true human goal is to cooperate to build societies based on ecological interdependence and then to sustain these human societies. All else is falsehood.
