SUPER AND SUPRA
Just as one can distinguish between
The supernatural and the supra-natural,
As between two kinds or degrees
Of theocratic indulgence, viz. a bodily and a mental,
An apparent and an essential,
So one should distinguish between
Supermen and the Supra-men
Of the coming Centrist civilization,
The former disposed to hallucinogenic enlightenment,
The latter ... to transcendental meditation;
The one preceding the other.
Then, with regard to a similar apparent/essential division
In the succeeding millennium, one should
Also distinguish between Superbeings and the Supra-beings,
As between hypertripping brain-collectivizations
Artificially supported and sustained on the one hand,
And ... hypermeditating new-brain collectivizations
No-less artificially supported and sustained
On the other hand, a distinction which
Would confirm the evolution of millennial life
Towards the ultrabeingful spiritual transcendences
Of the heavenly Beyond.
Whereas post-humanist life is connected with man,
Post-human life completely transcends him
In the free-electron life forms
Of Superbeings and Supra-beings respectively.
SCIENCE AND THEOLOGY
The Creator is a fairly neutral term
That can be bent in either
A scientific or a theological direction,
With regard to the First Cause or Jehovah.
It seems to hang between these two extremes,
Though with a bias towards the latter,
As when it is employed theologically,
As though synonymous with an old, grey-bearded figure
Who rules over the Cosmos.
Personally, I don't believe in any such Creator-God,
And few but the very backward or simpleminded
Have any use, these days, for the concept
Of a Creator-God, preferring not to think
Anthropomorphically or metaphorically about
The origins and/or originator of the Universe,
Or a particular part of it, like the Galaxy.
If Jehovah is an abstraction
From some primal root-creative force,
As I have little doubt He is, then
What really exists out there, in the starry cosmos,
Isn't Jehovah but the First Cause,
And what can that be if not
The central star of each galaxy?
Yes, there is a big, powerful, ruling star
At the heart of the Galaxy,
A god-king or tree-trunk equivalent,
And that is the source, knowingly or unknowingly,
From which the theological metaphor
Of the Creator, the Ancient of Days, the Maker,
The Almighty, etc., was extrapolated,
Just as the Fallen Angel closest to us,
Namely the Sun, is the source
From which Satan was extrapolated,
Theology being entitled to regard him
As the source of all evil in the world
By dint of the closer proximity, cosmically speaking,
Of the Sun to it, a proximity
That leaves the central star of the Galaxy
And therefore entitled, in theological logic,
To preferential interpretation and greater respect,
Just as monarchs, no matter how evil or incompetent,
Have always been accorded a higher status,
And therefore greater respect, than nobles,
Particularly barons - the rank of nobleman
Most closely approximating to the Sun
And thus, by theological implication, to the Devil.
For the Sun is a very minor star
On the edge of the Galaxy,
And a baron is a very minor aristocrat,
A mere thin-branch equivalent
In that mirror of the galactic order
And blueprint for the feudal order - a tree.
The more I look at and think about trees,
The more disgusted I become!
Trees may appear beautiful and noble to some people,
But to me they are ugly and ignoble
Because indicative of tyranny and exploitation,
The leaves so many slaves of the trunk and branches
Of the tree-proper, feeding it
With energy from the sun and moisture from the air,
Leaves sucked dry by the rapacious tree.
No, I don't like trees, for I see in them
The prototype of the feudal-world-order
Of peasants exploited by aristocrats,
Whether high- or low-ranking,
And the Few accordingly thriving
At the Many's expense
In a thoroughly diabolical, subnatural system -
One sanctioned not only by trees but,
Originally and primarily, by the stellar roots
Of evolution in the Cosmos.
What were the peasantry
In relation to their aristocratic lords -
Good, bad, less bad?
Probably 'less bad' is
The most objective description
Of a class implicated in a pagan absolutism
And corresponding, in their subjection,
To planets and leaves.
One might say demons as opposed to devils,
And to anyone who looks at a tree objectively,
Rather than through the distorting lens
Of a feudal sympathy, leaves must appear demonic
And branches positively devilish.
As to the trunk, 'divine' could only
Be applied to it in the very relative,
Spiritually fundamentalist sense of Creator,
As when one distinguishes Jehovah from Satan
Or king from peers.
So anyone with the least shred
Of spiritual subjectivity would have no option
But to perceive in it
The theocratic autocracy
That gets the lion's share of the booty,
Since bigger and stronger than everything else.
LESS GOOD BUT STILL GOOD
Just as peasants in a traditional feudal system
Were less bad than the aristocracy
But still bad, so, conversely, the meritocracy
In a revolutionary Centrist system would be
Less good than the superfolk but still good,
And therefore not identifiable with tyranny
Or its attenuated bourgeois successor
In ... parliamentary government.
Rather, they would be as angels to gods,
And one could speak of guidance or administration
In connection with their serving duties
Vis-à-vis the saved majority.
Of course, the Leader would be
No-less distinct from the meritocracy
Than (was) the Ruler from the aristocracy,
Since entitled to a separate divine status,
Only one whose derivation
Is subjective rather than objective,
Corresponding to the Holy Spirit
Rather than to the Father,
Since devolving upon the Second Coming,
And hence constituting a Messianic sovereignty
More good, if anything, than 'the Good'.
And yet, it is the People, not the Leader
Or his closest followers,
Who must evolve towards pure spirit;
For the Leader will be complete in himself.
Brotherly love is the ideal
A positive emotionality diffused
Throughout Christian humanity
And thereby rendered impersonal.
Love for another person
In a non-diffused positive emotionality
Is, by contrast, the reality
An impure love of the sexes,
Possessive and selective,
Attractive and reactive.
Free love, however, is the reality
And it signifies a 'fall' from
The non-diffused emotional love for another person
Of the neutron-wavicle Church
To the diffused bodily love
Of sexual promiscuity
In a love of other selves which, at the level
A non-diffused love of phenomenal self.
Spiritual love is, by contrast,
The ideal of the electron-wavicle Centre,
A love of noumenal self
That yet transcends the individual
In the collective consciousness of pure mind.
If love for another
Is the neutron-wavicle relativity,
Then love of noumenal self
Is the electron-wavicle absolutism,
With the neutron-particle relativity
Of free-loving phenomenalism
And the electron-particle absolutism
Of love of phenomenal self coming in-between.
It is tempting to see a parallel,
In the Irish and Spanish Civil Wars,
Between Nationalism and Republicanism,
But such a parallel would be, at best,
Superficial, at worst downright misleading!
Whereas the Irish Nationalists
Were also republicans
And the Republicans also nationalists,
The Spanish Republicans weren't nationalists
Nor the Nationalists republicans.
Unlike the Spanish Civil War,
The Irish Civil War didn't signify
A fascist/communist dichotomy but, rather,
Two shades of republican Nationalism -
Soft and hard, gradual and immediate,
Evolutionary and revolutionary.
The split in Sinn Fein over the Treaty
Led to fratricidal strife between
Pro-Treaty Free Staters
And Anti-Treaty Irregulars,
And although the former eventually triumphed,
The proclamation of a republic
Was later engineered by descendants
Of the Free Staters who,
Unlike hard-line republicans,
Were resigned, under Costello, to
A twenty-six county republic.
Imagine, if you can, Franco proclaiming a republic,
And one sees how far apart
The antagonists of the Spanish Civil War
Were from those of the Irish one!
Being neither nationalist nor republican,
I have little sympathy for either side
In the Irish Civil War; though I believe
That, under the prevailing circumstances,
The Free Staters were effectively right,
Since an Irish republic embracing
Of a pipe dream now than it was then,
And, besides, the British were implacably opposed
To the 32-county Republican ideal.
To me, both republican Nationalism
And nationalist Republicanism
for solving the
Which demands not a democratic
But a radically theocratic approach,
Commensurate with Social Transcendentalism
And the establishment in Eire
Of an Irish Social Transcendental Centre,
The first of a number of such Centres
That would eventually form a world-wide federation
Of supra-national peoples.
Nationalism, like Republicanism, is limited
To a given span of evolutionary time, corresponding
To an atomic age, and it has to be admitted that,
Due to historical circumstances, the Irish came late
To both Nationalism and Republicanism -
At the tail-end, so to speak, of the nationalist age.
Consequently, to regard either Nationalism
Or Republicanism as ideals worthy of eternal sanction
Is a serious mistake since, in effect,
They are distinctly temporal.
Better to regard them as means to a higher end -
Namely the attainment of
The most radically theocratic absolutism -
Than to treat them as ends in themselves.
Better not to unduly compromise
With democratic procedure and tradition -
More suited, in any case, to peoples
Like the British and the Americans - than
To take them to heart and/or
Seek to push democracy in a more radical direction.
Better the minimum compromise
That permits one the maximum theocratic freedom,
And thus facilitates progress towards
A truly Irish ideological integrity ...
Albeit one capable of wider global application.
The modicum of political freedom
In which to manoeuvre and subsequently engineer
The higher end - therein, it seems to me, lies
value of the
The upper class are inherently autocratic,
The middle class inherently democratic,
And the lower class inherently bureaucratic.
Evolution proceeds from the first to the last,
Who are only 'lower' in relation to the others,
Since, objectively considered, potentially
If not actually superior to them ...
On account of their environmentally
And socially more-evolved constitutions.
The upper class stem from the Father,
The middle class acknowledge the Son,
While the lower class aspire -
If intermittently and rather indirectly ...
In terms of the Virgin Mary - towards the Holy Spirit.
Now because in the future there should be
Neither autocratic nor democratic classes,
The lower class will be the only class
And, consequently, not lower at all
But an ultimate class, germane to
The theocratic absolutism of a transcendental age.
When the people ultimately triumph over
Both the aristocracy and the bourgeoisie,
The age of theocracy will be upon us.
Thus will humanity attain to its zenith,
Though less in the guise
Of the bureaucratic proletariat than
In that of the theocratic superfolk -
The ultimate manifestation of the People.
It is well-known that smoking
Isn't good for the health,
But it may not be generally appreciated
That smoking, no less than politics, is divisible
Into left- and right-wing manifestations,
With the corollary of subnatural, natural,
Antinatural, and supernatural distinctions,
A corollary presupposing
Roll-ups and cigarettes on the one hand,
But cigars and pipes on the other,
The former left wing, the latter right.
Yes, there is a communist equivalent
To the smoking of a roll-up,
And if this is subnaturalistic,
Then the smoking of a cigarette is naturalistic,
And thus rather more liberal.
By contrast to cigarettes, cigars suggest
A conservative equivalent,
A moderate antinaturalism which is transcended
In the supernaturalism of a pipe,
That fascist equivalent.
Fundamentally the smoking of roll-ups
Is an autocratic habit,
Cigarette smoking a bureaucratic habit,
Cigar smoking a democratic habit,
And pipe smoking a theocratic habit.
Smoking 'joints', on the other hand,
Is fundamentally a quasi-theocratic habit,
On account of the anti-supernatural status
Of 'joints' as extended roll-ups with dope,
Whereas the smoking of dope in a pipe
Confers a supernatural status
Commensurate with a pseudo-theocratic habit.
DRINKING AND SMOKING
There is something bourgeois about
A drink/smoke dichotomy, as though
Indulgence of both alcohol and tobacco confirmed
An antinatural/subnatural relativity,
Applicable to an atomic age.
Those who are not subnatural
But antinatural ... will only drink.
Those who are not antinatural
But subnatural ... will only smoke.
The first category will drink canned beer,
The second category … roll their own cigarettes,
With or without dope.
In between will come the beer/tobacco compromise
Of antinatural/subnatural atomists,
A compromise never more democratic
Than when the beer is in pint glasses
And the tobacco in cigars,
Though still existing
On the relatively bureaucratic level
Of bottled beer and cigarettes.
Anyway, if drinking is antinatural
And smoking subnatural,
The one corresponding to a wavicle equivalent,
The other to a particle equivalent,
Then we need not hesitate
To equate eating with a natural absolutism
And sniffing, by contrast,
With a supernatural absolutism,
The one preceding alcohol
In the atomic-particle age of the Kingdom,
The other destined to succeed tobacco
In the electron-wavicle age of the Centre,
Eating as confirmation
Of a kind of atomic relativity
Between eater and eaten,
Sniffing as confirmation
Of a kind of electron absolutism
Between sniffer and thing sniffed.
SMOKING AND SNIFFING
If eating to get high
Pertains to the bureaucratic Kingdom,
And drinking to get high
Pertains to the democratic Church,
Then smoking to get high
Pertains to the autocratic State
And sniffing to get high
Pertains to the theocratic Centre.
Eating and drinking
Are natural and antinatural,
Whereas smoking and sniffing
Are subnatural and supernatural.
If eating is barbarous and drinking civilized,
Then smoking is uncivilized
And sniffing supercivilized.
Human evolution proceeds, we needn't doubt,
From the first to the last,
With all due compromises coming in-between,
And should eventually culminate
In a kind of sniffing absolutism,
With eating, drinking, and smoking
Beneath the pale of its future theocratic integrity.
People of the Centrist civilization
Won't eat and/or drink as freely
As people do in a bureaucratic/democratic society,
But will become increasingly partial
To the use of vitamin tablets and/or capsules ...
As appropriate to an age of sniffing,
An alternative rather than supplement
To natural foods and drinks.
Smoking tobacco will be no less irrelevant
Than drinking alcohol,
And if any smoking were to be permitted
During the lower phase of a Centrist age ...
It could only be in the guise
Of dope-smoking through pipes,
As symptomatic of a pseudo-theocratic bias.
Just as Roman Catholicism celebrates Mass
With the body and blood of Christ
Duly transmuted into the wafer and wine,
So Social Transcendentalism should celebrate,
In officially coming to pass,
The dual sides of its spiritual integrity
Through recourse to both 'acid' and 'coke',
Or some harmless derivative thereof,
The one symptomatic of its 'social' (bureaucratic) side,
The other symptomatic
Of its 'transcendental' (theocratic) side -
The former preponderant over the latter ...
As is the wafer over the wine
In the celebration of Mass.
For the wine is transmuted paganism,
The 'Roman' side of Roman Catholicism,
Whereas the wafer is properly Catholic,
Corresponding more universally
To the Mother than to the Father.
It is the wafer rather than the wine
That confers a truly Catholic bias.
Likewise it should be the 'acid'
Rather than the 'coke' (mainly reserved,
in any case, for spiritual leaders ...
as a symbolic intimation
of properly meditative futurity
within a drug-based culture)
That confers a truly social one.
In the late-twentieth century, the nearest thing
To a meditation centre and, by implication,
The Social Transcendentalist culture
That could be associated with it ...
Was a Rock concert, particularly when indoors
And associated with light shows and synthetic drugs.
Such concerts were especially prevalent during
The late 1960s and early 1970s,
Before Rock succumbed to Punk,
But some Rock still prevailed in the 1990s,
And there was also Jazz to serve the same purpose -
Essentially one of religious aspiration
And cultural self-realization.
One could argue that these psychedelic concerts
Intimated of future meditation centres,
Much as though they were unofficial manifestations
Of theocratic Centrism in a state age,
The participants effectively outsiders
Within the existing civilization,
Their penchant for synthetic drugs illegal
From a state point-of-view,
Their culture unofficial,
Caught between two ages,
Tail-ending the democratic and intimating
Of the future theocratic,
Somewhat in the position of early Christians
Vis-à-vis the pagan status quo,
Frowned upon by the Establishment,
All those 'straights' who related to democratic,
Not to say autocratic, tradition,
The great middle-class masses of Western civilization,
Who would never 'trip' or 'snort' or do anything -
Sexually, socially, or otherwise - that wasn't
And hence broadly intellectual.
How they loathed those who were morally better
And more spiritually courageous than themselves,
All those 'freaks' that they preferred,
In their democratic ignorance of higher criteria,
To regard as socially worse and less intelligent -
The evil 'lower class' of an alternative culture,
A counter-culture to which they remained
Both deaf and blind, imprisoned within
The inner darkness of their purgatorial lunacy,
Shut off, like Dante's damned in blocks of ice, from
The liberating spirituality of the inner light!
No-one would pretend that 'freaks'
Were in a majority in the lower class;
For they are conspicuously a tiny minority
Compared with that great mass of philistines
Who constitute the proletarian generality.
Undoubtedly the most culturally precocious members
Of their class, they are the type
From whom a future leadership could be drawn,
A type who are civilized ...
On their own outsider's terms
In advance of the generality
And who, once in power,
Would transmit their culture to the masses
And thus make them more civilized in due turn,
Having first pioneered the way
In an unofficial capacity
Within the church/state civilization
And acquired a knowledge of and allegiance to
The transcendental culture to-come.
But by a curious paradox
Their future role would place them
Outside the mainstream culture of the People.
For you cannot transmit culture
And be civilized at the same time.
What you gain on the unofficial roundabout
You must lose on the official swings.
Civilized in advance of the masses,
You cannot be civilized with them.
DISCS AND TAPES
Whereas long-playing records correspond,
In the outer darkness of their stylus naturalism,
To a centrist political equivalent,
Video tapes correspond, in the outer light
Of their filmic subnaturalism,
To a left-wing political equivalent,
Whilst audio tapes correspond, in the inner darkness
Of their intellectual antinaturalism,
To a right-wing political equivalent.
Hence 'liberal' albums,
'Social democratic' video tapes,
And 'conservative' audio tapes.
But as alternatives to these democratic media
Of sound reproduction are the bureaucratic media
Of outer-darkness singles,
Inner-darkness tape recorders,
And inner-light compact discs,
With left-wing, centrist, and right-wing implications
Corresponding to socialist, ecologist,
And feminist positions that contrast (disc with tape
and tape with disc) to the democratic positions above,
As though in a particle/wavicle antagonism
Between hard and soft options,
Singles naturalistically hard
Whereas video tapes are subnaturalistically soft,
Tape recorders anti-naturalistically soft
Whereas LPs are naturalistically hard,
Compact discs supernaturalistically hard
Whereas audio tapes are anti-naturalistically soft.
As appearance gives way to essence
In the overall evolution of human life,
So must Social Transcendentalism eventually
Be superseded by Super-transcendentalism,
In order that the second and higher phase
Of Centrist civilization may come to pass
And bring Centrism to maturity,
Through the purest meditation,
In the ripe wisdom of a beingful essence.
This meditation of the noumenal self upon itself
Will supersede contemplation of the other in the self,
Pure transcendentalism superseding
The impure transcendentalism of the hallucinogenic trip,
Just as, in the Christian West, puritanical Protestantism
Superseded visionary Catholicism
In the evolution of Christianity
From appearance to essence, doing to being.
Phases cannot be escaped, and if the second phase
Of Centrism must wait until the first phase
Has properly run its course, then so be it!
GIVE AND TAKE
Are you a giving or a taking man, one with
A bias for the Father or for the Holy Spirit,
Or are you both giving and taking
In approximately equal degrees,
Somewhere in between the absolutes
In a Christian relativity?
The sun gives light and trees bear fruit,
But pure spirit would only partake
Of its own blissful being,
As would the supra-beings
Of the preceding post-Human Millennium.
The further man evolves the less he gives
And the more he takes, thereby
Approximating to the goal of evolution
In passive self-containment.
Doing, by contrast, is more connected
With giving than taking,
And the active are usually those who give the most.
If to give is your bias, know that there is
A higher ideal in taking, especially in partaking of the self,
And that the taking man is potentially, if not actually,
A morally superior and more evolved type of being,
Not the good-for-nothing rogue he may at first appear!
Eventually, there will be no giving but only taking
Or, rather, partaking of pure mind.
TELEVISION AND VIDEO
As discs to tapes, so television to video,
The one autocratic and the other democratic,
Extreme and moderate left-wing alternatives,
With the former corresponding
To a communist equivalent, and the latter ...
To a social democratic one,
Television the outer-light subnaturalism,
Relative to autocracy, of the communist State;
Video the outer-light subnaturalism,
Relative to democracy, of the social democratic State.
Spring and autumn are Christian seasons,
The one corresponding to the instinctual side of Christ,
The other to His spiritual side,
Spring a kind of diluted summer,
Autumn ... a diluted winter,
Semi-pagan and semi-transcendental respectively.
Summer and winter, however, are the pagan
And transcendental seasons, corresponding
To the Father and to the Holy Ghost.
Summer draws one closer to Hell,
The burning heat of the sun scorching the flesh
And stultifying the mind.
Winter, by contrast, draws one closer to Heaven,
The sun at too great a distance to be of any real menace,
The icy air freezing the flesh and quickening the mind.
Which is better - to burn or to freeze?
The flesh prefers the former,
And most people regret the passing of summer,
Their bodies attuned to its heathen warmth
And their senses gratified by nature's pagan show,
The season a holiday from transcendental morals
And puritanical obligations.
Winter, then, is a negative thing,
The bitter inclemencies unmoved by human woe,
Indifferent to human want.
Rare is the man who is grateful for winter,
Who sees in the gentler sun
A reprieve from pagan tyranny,
Whose mind dominates the flesh
And can regard its revolt
With icy contempt or indifference,
Preferring the season of the mind.
Such a man is not Christian, still less pagan,
But transcendental, transvaluated within himself
And living not in the mind for the body,
But in the body for the mind.
If, at present, this man is the exception,
In the future he will become the rule -
Unafraid of winter, contemptuous of the sun!
Supertheocracy is no mere Christian theocracy,
As applying to the spiritual side of Christ,
But the full-blown transcendental theocracy
Of the Second Coming, the theocracy
Not of the Church but of the Centre.
Supertheocracy appertains to the Supermen,
Those hypertripping Supernaturalists
In the Social Transcendentalist phase
Of the Centrist civilization to come.
Supra-theocracy appertains to the Supra-men,
Those hypermeditating Supra-naturalists
In the purely transcendental phase
Of the Centrist civilization, antithetically
Equivalent to the puritanical phase
Of the Christian civilization.
For whereas Puritanism signified
A neutron-wavicle equivalent,
Pure transcendentalism will signify
An electron-wavicle equivalent,
Eventually leading to the first
Of two ultimate life forms - namely
The Superbeings of the post-Human Millennium.
Supertheocracy in the Centrist civilization
Has its parallel in the succeeding millennium,
And so, likewise, does Supra-theocracy.
The cultivation of pure spirit proceeds
From an indirect to a direct approach,
As from appearance to essence.
Supertheocracy will be contemplative,
Albeit on the most artificial terms.
Supra-theocracy will be meditative on the purest terms,
The wavicle absolutism of the mind aware.
Awareness and ever greater awareness - that is
The air-stimulated challenge of evolution!
Playwright, novelist, philosopher, poet -
The secular playwright more prevalent
In the alpha of civilized evolution
Than in the age of Christianity,
When the Catholic playwright came into his own
And, superseding the Roman Catholic scholastics,
With their attenuated philosophy and medieval theosophy,
Brought atomic writing to its wavicle climax,
Before the Protestant playwright attenuated the genre
Through secularization, permitting emergence
Of the liberal novel, with its dualistic integrity,
A dramatic/philosophic compromise
Soon to be challenged, and transcended, by
The philosophical absolutism
Of the socialist novel, or antinovel,
Preparatory to the eclipse of the novel
By practical philosophy,
Beyond which only the anti-supernovel
Of a poetic bias can apply, before,
Last but scarcely least, the pure poet emerges
With the omega of civilized evolution,
To bring electron writing to its wavicle climax
In the purest poetry of a theocratic impression,
An intimation of the Holy Spirit
In the contemplative peace that surpasses all intellectuality.
Socialism, whether democratic or totalitarian,
May constitute an antithetical equivalent to
The aristocratic enslavement of feudal autocracy,
Being the electron-particle counterpart
To proton-particle materialism,
But it isn't the end, in economic terms, of
The evolutionary road.
For no less than an atomic-wavicle equivalent
Is entitled to its economic freedom,
So an electron-wavicle equivalent
Is entitled to its economic freedom
In meritocratic Centrism,
Which pertains to the Second Coming
And to the Centrist ideology
Of Social Transcendentalism,
In what could be described as Centre guidance,
Whereby the meritocracy decide how money
Is to be spent and/or raised
In the interests of supertheocratic freedom.
The main economic distinction is between
Particle enslavement and wavicle freedom,
Or aristocratic feudalism
And bureaucratic socialism on the one hand,
But plutocratic capitalism
And meritocratic centrism on the other hand,
The bureaucratic leading to the meritocratic
No less than the aristocratic led to the plutocratic,
Albeit not, in each case, without a struggle,
Nor, indeed, without intermediate compromises.
If a proton-particle equivalent
Is aristocratic in relation to
An atomic-wavicle equivalent, its plutocratic successor,
Then an electron-particle equivalent
Will be bureaucratic in relation to
An electron-wavicle equivalent, its meritocratic successor.
Only the wavicle equivalent, whether moderate or extreme,
Plutocratic or meritocratic, represents economic freedom.
But only an extreme wavicle equivalent
Can represent the highest freedom ...
Of a meritocratic Centrism.
ULTIMATE CENTRIST FREEDOM
Social Transcendentalism is intended to signify
A compromise between bureaucracy and meritocracy,
State planning and Centre guidance,
With an emphasis on the latter ...
In accordance with the wavicle bias
Of this supertheocratic ideology,
Which necessarily transcends socialism in
The name of Centrist freedom,
In order that the way may be prepared
For the ultimate Centrist freedom
Of the absolutely wavicle age to follow -
The supra-theocratic age of pure Centrism.
PROTONS AND ELECTRONS
Protons are self-assertive,
Protons are autocratic, electrons theocratic.
Protons are centrifugal, electrons centripetal.
Protons are subnatural, electrons supernatural.
Protons are the Kingdom, electrons the Centre.
Protons are fundamentally particles,
Electrons essentially wavicles.
Protons precede electrons,
Then protons and electrons coexist,
With the help of neutrons,
In an atomic compromise,
After which electrons supersede protons.
Electron particles are less materialistic
Than proton particles.
Electron wavicles are more spiritualistic
Than proton wavicles.
Proton materialism is natural
But electron materialism is antinatural.
Proton spirituality is subnatural
But electron spirituality is supernatural.
Proton spirituality is pseudo because apparent,
Electron materialism is pseudo because synthetic.
The genuine is at the beginning of materialism
And at the end of spirituality,
Alpha of the world and omega of the spirit.
Man's Final End isn't in God ...
As unified pure spirit set in space,
But in the Superbeings of millennial futurity,
That post-human epoch in time
Which more accords with Eternity.
Man's Final Overcoming is in the first
Of our two projected post-human life forms -
The artificially-supported and sustained
Brain collectivizations of the Superbeings,
Who will be as much above transcendental man
As tree-living apes were beneath pagan man,
Being a completely separate species of life,
Not beastly but divine, not animals but gods,
Knowing little of and caring nothing for
The world of man, that passing show
In between pre- and post-human life forms,
Never more strictly itself than
In a Christian, humanist stage
Of its painful evolution, when man
Was the relative measure of all things relatively.
Even the Supermen in the first stage
Of ultimate human civilization,
The Centrist civilization of a transcendental age,
Will attest to man's overcoming
To the relative degree of post-humanist affiliation,
An affiliation that will become
More radically post-humanist with the second stage
Of Centrist evolution in hypermeditating Supra-men,
A pre-millennial stage that will lead
To the Millennium-proper, and so
To man's ultimate overcoming
In hypertripping Superbeings, who in turn
Will be overcome and superseded
By hypermeditating Supra-beings
In the second stage of the post-Human Millennium,
The pre-heavenly stage leading directly
To the Beyond of spaced-up pure spirit.
It makes a lot of difference whether
You are for the Father, the Son, or the Holy Ghost.
Some people, even now, are for the Father,
And are thus effectively neo-pagan.
Some people are still for the Son, being
Of that diehard core of genuine Christians.
Some people are neither for the Father
Nor for the Son but ... the Antichrist,
And are thus effectively communistic, favouring
The abandonment of all religious traditions.
Other people, who vary in numbers
From country to country, are for the Second Coming,
Being of the opinion that only he can lead the way
For the rebirth of religion
In an aspiration towards the Holy Ghost.
Some people, even now, are for the Holy Ghost,
And are thus effectively proto-transcendentalist,
Consciously dedicated to tripping
And/or meditating in hope
Of an approximation to pure mind.
These alone aspire towards the truly divine,
And, in time, they will be joined by many more!
CHURCH AND STATE
democracy, such as exists in
Is effectively a compromise between church and state,
aligned with the
Left-wing parties aligned with the socialist State,
A kind of political tug-of-war ensuing
Between the two which, however, is never resolved,
There being no will on the Left for a state absolutism,
All parties implicated in the atomic relativity
Of a liberal democracy.
The Labour Party may be anti-democratic in essence,
But only within the relative context of liberalism,
Not on any absolute basis.
Conversely, the Liberal Democrats, while being
In essence democratic, are more radically so
Than their Liberal forerunners.
Being democratic does of course imply
One's favouring a mixed, and hence relative, economy,
Whether in terms of a balance between
The private and public sectors, as in Liberalism,
Or in terms of an oscillation between the private
And public sectors, as in Liberal Democracy,
Whereas the 'anti-democratic' Labour Party
Have traditionally favoured the public sector alone,
And thus endeavoured to nationalize
As much as possible whilst in office,
In contrast to the privatizing Tories,
With whom they were in bitter conflict.
If capitalism and Protestantism slot together,
Then so do socialism and communism,
But the democratic socialists aren't nearly
As communist as left-wing Marxists, who are
Outside the pale of the liberal compromise -
Upholders of a state absolutism.
The Extreme Right have no more in common
With the Conservatives than
The Extreme Left ... with the Liberals.
Both fascism and communism are outside the pale
Of a church/state compromise,
The one tending to signify a church absolutism,
The other ... a state absolutism,
Albeit, in both cases, very different churches
And states from those pertaining to liberal civilization.
If fascism falls short of conceiving
The religious successor to the Church ... in the Centre,
It at least undermines the State
And intimates, in its paradoxical way, of
A higher possibility.
Hitler's Reich wasn't so much a state (which
in any case is implicated in republicanism) as a
Crude and bogus Centre,
One opposed to all republicanism
And, by implication, democratic sovereignty.
A 'Centre' without the truth, fascism
An extreme right-wing antithesis to communism
Which, in its Marxist purism, is without
The Leninist 'State' or, more correctly,
As formerly applying to Soviet Communism.
No less than Bolshevism was beyond Marxism ...
Social Transcendentalism is beyond fascism,
Being the ideology of the Second Coming,
The logical successor to Christianity.
And no less than Soviet Communism weakened
The totalitarian State, or Bolshevik pseudo-Kingdom,
Through the infusion of pseudo-democracy,
So Social Transcendentalism would
Strengthen the Centre, until, ultimately,
Nothing but the Centre remained,
Transcendentalism having eclipsed
Even the 'social' side, or transmuted state-aspect,
Of Social Transcendentalism.
If medieval Christians could be raised
From the dead and then confronted
By the amount of sporting activity which
The contemporary world takes for granted,
They would probably be horrified
And quickly elect to return to their graves again!
For such Christians would surely think
They had been returned, in time, to
An age of pagan physicality,
When bodily strength counted for everything
And the spirit, by contrast, for next-to-nothing!
For what is this recrudescence
Of physical competition to which
The modern world is especially partial
If not a kind of neo-pagan materialism,
Symptomatic of an intensive decadence
Peculiar to the age of the State?
Anyone who knew anything about the atom
Could be left in no doubt
That neutron and electron particles
Had conclusively triumphed over neutron wavicles
In the establishment of an anti-natural athleticism,
The antithetical equivalent to proton subnaturalism.
Yes, artificial physicality has triumphed,
Whether on the racing track or on the football field,
The golf course or the cricket pitch,
The gym floor or the ice-skating rink,
In the swimming pool or in the boxing ring.
While some sport is still predominantly subnatural,
And thus literally neo-pagan, most of it
Is artificial, and thus strictly contemporary.
But it is all somehow symptomatic of state decadence,
And sometimes it is no less fatalistic
Than in the gladiatorial age of the barbaric ancients.
Mostly, however, it is relatively harmless
From the physical point-of-view, since
Electron equivalents are more disposed
To attraction than to reaction, and they
Tend to preponderate over anachronisms.
But, still, it all leaves something
To be desired from a spiritual point-of-view,
And you can take it from me
That if the state-oriented present is ever overcome,
And a new civilization duly developed,
There will be far less sporting activity around
In the future, such little as remains
Being largely, if not exclusively, sedentary and artificial,
Requiring no more than one player,
And he mainly a spectator.
The Millennium for me is a period in time
Beyond man and before ... Heaven,
A post-human period that succeeds
The last stage of human civilization
In the free-electron absolutism of Centrism,
As applying to the Supermen and Supra-men
Of the coming transcendental age.
Since these are earmarked to succeed
The Catholic and Protestant men
Of the Christian age, so will they be superseded
By the Superbeings and Supra-beings
Of the post-Human Millennium,
Who will in turn be superseded
By the Spiritual Globes
Of the post-Millennial Beyond.
Prior to Christian men, we find the submen
In the pagan age of proton absolutism,
And they signified a 'fall' from the moral innocence
Of tree-living apes in 'the Garden'
Of the pre-human period in time,
Which we can classify as the Alpha Millennium,
A truly subnatural absolutism
Of apes in branches and, prior to that,
Leaves on trees, which were preceded
By the Instinctual Globes of stars,
Whether large, medium, or small,
Unregenerate or cooling.
So just as transcendental men will be
Antithetical to the men of pagan antiquity,
So the Superbeings of the Omega Millennium
Will be antithetical to the apes, or submen,
Of the Alpha Millennium, and the Supra-beings thereof
Likewise antithetical to its trees or, rather, leaves,
Which we can classify as sub-beings,
If only to distinguish them from apes.
However, it is towards the Omega Millennium
Instead of back towards the Alpha Millennium
That man is slowly advancing,
And when he eventually gets there
His final overcoming will be for real,
With only a comparatively small number
Of men remaining to engineer the creation
And supervise the physical and spiritual wellbeing,
Of his god-like successors.
BEHIND AND BEYOND
Stages in the Behind leading
From the first-cause central star
Of any particular galaxy to sun-type
Peripheral stars, and from there to planets,
As from the Alpha Absolute ...
Of a universal instinctual globe
To galactic and planetary instinctual globes -
Creators, devils, and demons,
In decreasing sizes proportionately.
Contrast this to stages
In our projected Beyond, leading
From planetary and galactic spiritual globes
To the universal spiritual globe ...
Of the Omega Absolute -
As from the Many and Few to the One,
With increases in size proportionately,
As convergence and expansion take
Their divinely-ordained course in the depths of space,
From planetary spiritual globes,
Each one arising from a Supra-being
In the second stage of millennial evolution,
To the larger galactic spiritual globes,
Antithetical to suns, until culmination
Is achieved in the universal spiritual globe ...
Of the Omega Absolute,
As the end-product of all previous
Convergences and expansions,
The complete antithesis to the Alpha Absolute
At the centre of each galaxy,
The Creator-equivalent with
Its wavicle proton-proton reactions, not one but ...
Thousands of them all over the Universe,
The source from which smaller stars 'fell',
To diverge and contract
In diabolic apartness of particle friction,
The infernal Behind of cosmic devolution,
Astronomy and astrology are
Of this diabolic cosmos, the one physical
Or, rather, subphysical, and the other occult,
Concerned with interpreting
The instinctual effects upon the human psyche
Of stars and planets, reflecting
Enslavement to subnatural determinism.
Higher man, closer to the Beyond than
To the Behind, scorns these diabolic disciplines,
Won't have anything to do with them.
He knows that the future won't have
Anything to do with them either,
Preferring its closed-society absolutism
Of an aspiration towards the Beyond,
Dedicated, through Centrism, to the cultivation
Of pure spirit in free-electron attractions
Of mind to mind, a microcosmic approximation
To subsequent macrocosmic unification.
Marriage is a liberal bond
Between church and kingdom,
The Virgin and the Father transmuted,
Through Christian realism.
Woman as atomic-wavicle equivalent
And man as atomic-particle equivalent
During the act of procreation.
Soft and hard, hard into soft growing softer
Until climax eclipses both
In the most ecstatic sensation of physical soul!
Fear of descent into state promiscuity
At the heart of natural conservatism,
Its roots somewhere down in allegiance to nature.
No divorce if that encourages a split
Between church and state, and ...
Fans the flames of a state absolutism,
Antinaturalism growing to the point
Of exclusion of woman from sex,
A particle materialism of homosexual males.
All very bad from the standpoint
Of the Catholic Church, sexual decadence
A confirmation of moral decline.
So what's to be done?
Stay atomic for ever, keeping people married
In a liberal compromise?
No, evolution demands its way,
Else life will perish in deathly stasis!
For wavicle-biased peoples,
The answer is a new and higher wavicle bias,
A supernatural sexuality that
Transcends marriage, being above atomic dualism
In the free-electron absolutism
Of artificial individual sex, as germane
To a Social Transcendentalist ideological integrity,
Each person, whether male or female,
Independent of the opposite sex,
Since not recognizing a sexual dichotomy,
A plastic inflatable or vibrator
The physical concomitant
Of the 'social' side of the ideology,
A refined pornographic extremism, appertaining
To computers, the spiritual concomitant
Of the 'transcendental' side
Of this relativistic absolutism,
The supernatural successors to both
Coital and oral sex - the pornographic
More supra-natural than supernatural. And babies?
Conceived, as before, by women, except that
The seed comes from sperm banks
And is artificially inseminated into
The prospective mother,
Thereby transcending the need for sexual materialism,
That church/state compromise, in a Centrist absolutism.
Oppose the antinatural if you will,
But don't regard the natural as worthy of eternal sanction,
The true evolutionist is a Supernaturalist,
Aligned with free-electron divinity.
He who is for the Holy Spirit is above marriage.
He who is for supertheocracy cannot be bureaucratic
Or democratic, still less autocratic!
Bank notes are to the State
What gold was to the Kingdom - confirmation
Of a materialist bias, a kind of focal-point
And raison d'être of business activity,
Attesting to the ideological stranglehold
Of contemporary economics over life,
Making money an ideal of the State
No less than finding gold was an ideal
Of the more materialistic Kingdom.
Have you ever noticed how obsessed
The contemporary world is with money,
Or are you too obsessed by it yourself
To be conscious of the world's obsession,
Taking it all for granted?
Speaking as a poet, I can only say that I have noticed
The contemporary world's obsession with money
And feel truly disgusted by it!
Not a day passes without some media news
About the state of the pound
Against foreign currency (particularly the dollar),
News of stock-exchange values,
The state of the economy,
Wage demands or price controls,
Inflation and recession,
Bank robberies or pools jackpots,
Liquidations and amalgamations,
Savings deposits and interest rates,
Losses and profits,
Public expenditure or private investment,
Taxes and fines,
Budgets and price increases,
The sinking value of this
Against the rising value of that, and so on ...
To the greater material glory of the State,
That modern Moloch which devours the spirit
In the name of the flesh,
The poor in the interests of the rich,
Making wealth the contemporary ideal,
Whether hogged by the Few
Or shared between the Many,
All struggling for more, no end in sight
To the darkness of economic slavery,
The age of the living dead,
Both bourgeois and proletarian,
Capitalist and socialist.
Whether through the adulterated wealth
Of capitalism or the purer wealth of socialism,
Private hoarding or public sharing,
Economics rules the contemporary roost,
The electron bird of the people
Shorn of its feathers and unable to fly,
Angrily hugging the ground.
Who but the Messiah can save this bird
From its living death ... through the Resurrection,
The rebirth of civilization
On the highest wavicle terms
Of electron freedom and spirit?
Marx is no saviour but, rather, an Antichrist
Of the materialist death, Das Kapital
The pseudo-Bible of the radical State,
Wealth to be shared, instead of abolished,
In the interests of social progress,
The socialistic 'best of a bad (economic) job',
The evil collectivism of socialist dispensation opposing
The evil individualism of capitalist exploitation.
How inadequate from the standpoint
Of the Second Coming! He who wishes
To lift electron man above
The economic strangulation of state existence
And free him for the Centre,
The true revolutionary who despises
Mere bureaucratic rebellion against
The plutocrats, estimating revolution
On the meritocratic terms of a wavicle progression,
The positivity of the Centre
Rather than the negativity of the State.
He knows that man won't live fully
Until the living death is overcome
By the resurrection of religion
On the purest wavicle terms.
The Second Coming isn't of the Church
But of the Centre,
Isn't of Roman Catholicism
But of Social Transcendentalism,
Isn't of the Blessed Will
But of the Blessed Spirit,
Which alone portends a Life Eternal.
Spengler distinguished between
'Culture' and 'Civilization', as regarding
Church and state or, more correctly,
The period of religious man
And the period of social man, corresponding
To my distinction between atomic wavicles
And neutron and/or electron particles,
Blessed being and cursed doing.
Before 'Culture' there is only
'Historyless Chaos', or barbarism, and
After the decline of 'Civilization' ...
The possibility of what Spengler calls
'Second Religiousness', corresponding
To the flowering of a new culture,
Which I equate with the Second Coming,
The resurrection of religion
On the highest wavicle terms
Of the free-electron Centre,
Not a matter of confession and prayer,
But of contemplation and meditation,
With a superconscious rather than a conscious bias,
A religion beyond mid-brain materialism
And the consequent worship of man by man
In the 'Civilization', a kind of Second Culture
Which should lead straight into the Millennium,
And thus to the overcoming of man
Through the post-human life forms
Of the Superbeings and Supra-beings respectively,
There no longer being any possibility
Of a 'Culture/Civilization' dichotomy ...
Since that only applies to the world of atomic man,
With particular reference to Christians,
Who would seem, in Spenglerian terminology,
To have superseded pagan civilization
While being destined for supersession
By transcendental culture, their atomicity flanked
By proton particles and electron wavicles -
Alpha and omega of human evolution.
Strictly speaking, sculpture is
An aristocratic art, painting a plutocratic art,
Light sculpture a technocratic art,
And holography a meritocratic art.
The sculptor is the first and lowest kind
Of atomic artist, corresponding to
An atomic-particle equivalent
In his phenomenal appearances.
The holographer is the second and highest kind
Of electron artist, corresponding to
An electron-wavicle equivalent
In his noumenal essences.
Hence autocracy and theocracy.
The painter is the second and highest kind
Of atomic artist, corresponding to
An atomic-wavicle equivalent
In his noumenal appearances.
The light sculptor is the first and lowest kind
Of electron artist, corresponding to
An electron-particle equivalent
In his phenomenal essences.
Hence bureaucracy and democracy.
Painting was an evolutionary 'rise'
From stone sculpture, light sculpture
An evolutionary 'fall' from painting.
Holography is an evolutionary 'rise'
From light sculpture, an art of the spirit
Instead of the intellect or body,
And, through it, art will attain
To its evolutionary climax.
If sculpture-proper was an inherently pagan mode
Of visual art, necessarily tactile,
Then painting was its Christian (and specifically
Roman Catholic) successor.
If light sculpture is an inherently Marxist mode
Of visual art, the electron bombardment
Of phosphor metaphorically suggestive
Of the militant proletariat, then holography
Will be its transcendental (and specifically
Social Transcendentalist) successor,
Bringing visual art to its wavicle culmination
In the purest visions.
Social Transcendentalism may also be regarded
As, in some special sense, Social Theocracy,
The supertheocratic ideology that stems
From Catholic fascism but largely transcends it.
Unlike Social Democracy, that
Radically democratic ideology, a superdemocratic
As opposed to an anti-democratic or
An anti-superdemocratic politics,
Social Theocracy couldn't indefinitely
Coexist with alternative parties
But, in attaining to power, would insist on
Its own exclusive and absolutist right to serve,
A right inherent in the supersession
Of democracy and the establishment
Of a Social Transcendental Centre -
A necessarily totalitarian affair
In which the party of the Second Coming
Would be obligated to bear the 'sins of the world'
In a sacrificial aside to the religious sovereignty
Of the saved masses, all those who had
Democratically opted for the ultimate sovereignty
In order that the 'Kingdom of Heaven'
Could officially come to pass and
The People thereby secure the right
To noumenal self-realization
In accordance with their newly-achieved status
As the Holy Spirit.
Since life is evolution,
So a life must be evolutionary,
Else condemned to rot in stasis,
Which is the only true corruption,
The anti-life corruption
Of death-in-life, opposing change,
Whether on class or political grounds.
Anti-life isn't the taking of life in the womb,
Subhuman foetal life, so much as
The opposing of evolutionary progress
In deference to natural determinism.
The further life evolves, the more nature is overcome
And superseded by the Supernatural,
As free-electron criteria discredit all atomic compromises,
Bringing men closer to the ultimate Supernaturalism
Of the heavenly Beyond.
MEANS TO ENDS
The sun isn't natural but subnatural,
The pre-atomic absolutism of protons preceding
The atomic compromises of the natural world,
From which, in the guise of man,
Further evolutionary progress
Leads to the post-atomic absolutism
Of free electrons in the Supernatural.
The antinatural and/or artificial
Stands to the Supernatural
As the subnatural to the natural -
A means to a higher end, not an end-in-itself.
As the subnatural Kingdom led to the natural Church,
Balanced between protons and electrons,
So the anti-natural State will lead
To the supernatural Centre, and thus
To the spiritual realization of free-electron ends.
CIVILIZED AND BARBARIC
Germane to civilization is the concept
Of an Eternal Life to-come,
An aspiration towards a condition superior to
And distinct from human reality - in short, a divine End.
A civilized period is one in which concern with the Beyond
Preponderates over the here-and-now, or mere survival;
In which the spiritual good of the Many
Is put before the material interests of the Few.
A barbarous period, by contrast, focuses
On the world and the individual's stake in it.
It is the difference between wavicles and particles,
Cohesion and differentiation,
Spirituality and materialism.
A civilized barbarity, however, will focus
On the Many and the future,
Like a genuine civilization,
Albeit on down-to-earth, materialist terms,
Suggestive of world socialism,
The millennial concomitant of which
Would be a kind of Spartan consumer society
Broadly commensurate with
The utmost contraction of materialism.
As Church art-proper signified
An atomic-wavicle equivalent
In the spreading of paint on canvas,
So Centre art-proper will signify
An electron-wavicle equivalent
In the projection of holograms into space,
As appropriate to a supertheocratic ideological integrity.
Doubtless some light art,
Particularly in the guise of lasers,
Will continue to exist, albeit subordinate
To the main holographic trend.
Light sculpture, on the other hand,
Will have been discredited
As an overly secular type of art, and nothing
Remotely resembling sculpture will survive.
Likewise, in sex, nothing
Overtly homosexual will be encouraged,
Centrist sex signifying elevation
To an electron-wavicle equivalent
In the Supernaturalism
Of computer-generated erotica -
The omega antithesis to filmic hard-core
And, hence, to the outer light of the State.
SAVED FROM THINKING
Artificial intelligence is superseding
Natural intelligence, calculators and computers ...
The human brain, and while some people,
Mostly of the Puritan Church, see this as a loss,
Most people, being of the liberal State,
Regard it as an inestimable gain.
For artificial intelligence saves them from thinking,
Which is, after all, a neutron indulgence,
More suited to a naturalistic age.
And to be saved from thinking
Allows for the possibility
Of one's giving oneself to awareness,
With the dawn of a Centrist commitment
To electron purism of the highest
Contemplative and meditative kinds.
Now that fully automated factories
Are beginning to appear, staffed by robots,
The way is open for the overcoming
Of the industrial proletariat
And their transformation into superfolk -
The higher, wavicle manifestation of the People
That must eventually supersede all electron particles.
Being delivered from factory work by robots
Creates the possibility of the proletariat's
Being saved for spiritual play, provided that
Those who are made redundant are encouraged
And willing to play passively
Rather than, as in factories, to passively work.
For the fewer workers
And the more players there are in society,
The closer it will be to heavenly salvation.
Damned in work, the proletariat will be saved by play
And become the classless superfolk of a truly spiritual age.
DEMOCRACY AND DICTATORSHIP
One should distinguish
Between a dictatorial democracy,
Or a democracy imposed upon the people
And run on a totalitarian basis,
And a democratic dictatorship,
Or a dictatorship that is voted into power
By popular consent.
Dictatorial democracy pertains to right-wing communism,
Democratic dictatorship to left-wing fascism,
The difference, traditionally, between
Soviet Communism and National Socialism.
But neither of these should be confounded
With a dictatorship, purely and simply,
That is imposed upon the people without their consent.
Such dictatorships aren't fascist but military,
And thus a form of attenuated autocracy,
Beneath the pale of a genuine ideology.
Whatever one may think of Nazism,
It was no military dictatorship,
But a democratic dictatorship
Established by popular consent.
And the same should apply to the future attainment
Of Social Transcendentalism to power
In countries, hopefully, like Eire,
Except that, unlike Nazism, the ideology
Of what is potentially a true world (global) religion
Would only be dictatorial to the extent
That its leader - recognized in advance as
The most genuine approximation to the Second Coming
And duly granted the freedom to utilize the State
For theocratic ends - was bearing such 'sins of the world'
As the electorate had fobbed-off onto him
In return for religious sovereignty, and hence
The right to spiritual self-realization
In what would effectively become,
Under Social Transcendentalist auspices,
The 'Kingdom of Heaven' which had been awaited
For so long by the faithful in hope of the Resurrection
And its promise of Eternal Life - the life of the spirit
Granted maximum emphasis and longevity
Through the brain's ultimately being artificially supported
And no-less artificially sustained in the collectivized
Contexts of a post-Human Millennium.
Thoughts correspond to the wavicle aspect
Of the neutron in the guise of bound thought,
But to the particle aspect of the neutron and/or electron
In the guise of free thought -
The one tending to precede the other ...
In the progression of psychic evolution
From conscious mind to new-brain dominion
Via the midbrain of neutron-particle liberalism.
Thus bound thought originates
In the conscious mind, free thought appertaining
To the midbrain and/or new brain,
The former commensurate with the Church,
The latter with the State (both liberal and radical),
The former inherently theological,
The latter ... philosophical,
The bound noumenal and the free phenomenal,
Neutron intellectuality advancing
In a phenomenal anti-natural, and hence 'fallen', guise
In the secular context of free thought,
Which corresponds to the particle aspect
Of the neutron within the parliamentary context,
But to the particle aspect of the electron
Within the rather more radical context
Of the hard-line republican state,
And which can only be superseded,
Via the soft-line republicanism
Of an atomic-particle state, through, firstly,
The atomic-wavicle transcendentalism
Of visionary contemplation, corresponding
To the hard inner-light of the Blessed Virgin
In a New Earth, and then, secondly,
Through the superconscious purism
Of an electron-wavicle contemplation
Transcending the visionary
In the awareness that is beyond all intellectuality,
The peace that surpasses all understanding,
The ultimate peace of the saved spirit,
Which is bound to the soft inner-light of the Holy Ghost
In the New Heaven of supertheocratic bliss.
Visions correspond to the wavicle aspect
Of the atom, whether in the proton-biased guise
Of natural visions or in the electron-biased guise
Of supernatural visions,
The one tending to precede the other
In the progression of the psyche
From subconscious to superconscious.
Thus whereas natural visions originate
In the subconscious as atomic-wavicle noumena
Commensurate with the Catholic Church,
Supernatural visions appertain
To the superconscious as atomic-wavicle noumena
Commensurate with the Centre, and particularly
With the Social Transcendental Centre,
Both of which are inherently theosophical,
Albeit, in the case of supernatural visions,
Genuinely so ... on account of
The electron essence of genuine theosophy,
A noumenon that began in the proton-biased,
And hence external, mould of natural visions.
Beyond supernatural visions lie
The pure electron equivalent
Of supra-natural awareness,
The meditation of the noumenal self upon itself
In the pure mind of ultimate selfhood.
This is the higher transcendentalism that will supersede
The predominantly visionary transcendentalism
Of a Social Transcendentalist age,
The pure transcendentalism of electron absolutism,
An essential rather than an apparent noumenon.
Elevated above the contemplation
Of artificially-induced supernatural visions,
The superconscious will become
The supra-conscious of spiritual essence,
The meditative consciousness of the Supra-men,
Who are destined to succeed Supermen
In the first phase of Centrism's wavicle evolution.
THEOCRATIC AND TRANSCENDENTAL
Social Transcendentalism is really
The religious face of Centrism,
Social Theocracy its political face.
When speaking of religion on the Centrist level,
'Transcendental' is more appropriate
Than 'theocratic' on account
Of its inherently religious suggestibility.
When speaking, however, of politics
On the Centrist level, 'theocratic'
Is more appropriate than 'transcendental'
On account of its phonetic similarity
To 'democratic' - which is the essence of politics.
It also has a slightly more facile
Syllabic construction than 'transcendental'.
A Social Theocratic Centre is slightly less of
A mouthful than a Social Transcendental Centre,
And a Social Theocrat is of easier reference
Than a Social Transcendentalist.
POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS
If the State-Centre is theocratic,
Then the Church-Centre will be transcendental.
The 'political' leaders and their closest followers
Will be Social Theocrats,
But the religious guides - those
Priest-equivalents specially trained
To serve in meditation centres -
Will be Social Transcendentalists,
And so, by a process of religious association,
Will the People be, just as they are identifiable,
Within the Christian West,
As Roman Catholics and/or Protestants.
If the natural play can be described
As a proton-biased atomic-particle mode
Of visual expression, then its
Supernatural equivalent, the television play,
Could well be described as an electron-biased
Atomic-particle mode of visual expression,
It being assumed that plays
Are confined to a particle equivalent
In a liberal or radical age, and aren't
Susceptible to radically theocratic upgrading.
Originally stemming from the bureaucratic kingdom,
Plays have become progressively more secularized ...
Until no longer retaining any ecclesiastical significance,
But functioning as a secondary literary form
In the utmost particle decadence of the bureaucratic state.
Films are related not to plays but to dreams,
As though signifying a kind of external,
Artificial 'dreaming' applicable to a materialist age,
The antithesis of sleep-dreams, and so
Appertaining to an electron-particle equivalent.
If, in their proton appearances, dreams correspond
To the autocratic kingdom, then films correspond
To the democratic state, coming in-between
The natural visions of the Catholic Church
And the supernatural visions
Of our projected Social Transcendental Centre,
Both of which are wavicle equivalents,
And therefore impressive rather than expressive.
Thus films signify a 'fall' from
The static internal visions of a church age
To the active external visions of a state age,
Albeit, in the paradoxical nature of such 'falls', one
That is also a progression from the natural
To the antinatural and/or artificial,
Which, in discrediting the natural, allows for
The possibility of a subsequent, if unrelated,
Supernatural advance in the guise of 'acid tripping' -
The static, artificially-induced visions of a Centrist age.
If films are the antithetical equivalent of dreams,
Then trips are the antithetical equivalent
Of natural visions, an electron-biased
As opposed to a proton-biased
Internal as opposed to external,
Centripetal instead of centrifugal,
An affair of the superconscious,
Not of the subconscious, a supernatural
Rather than a subnatural experience, requiring
Not fasting but ... synthetic hallucinogens like LSD
To activate them in a superwakefulness
Of visionary contemplation.
Morally preferable to the antinatural film
Of an electron-particle equivalent,
And spiritually superior to the natural visions
Of the Catholic mystic, tripping
Is the ultimate form of visionary experience,
Beyond which only the pure mind
Of the meditating self can lead one higher ...
Towards the Beyond of ultimate divinity
And the essential inner-light
Of an electron-wavicle equivalent,
The New Heaven of the Holy Spirit
Instead of the New Earth of the Blessed Virgin,
But a New Heaven that can only arise
From the New Earth, and hence
The apparent inner-light of the trip -
Bureaucracy and theocracy in
A Social Theocratic partnership that will extend into
The supertheocratic purism of the Holy Spirit alone!
