b. The knowing of intellect vis-à-vis the doing of will.
2a. Spirit is the light of being; soul, by contrast, the heat of feeling.
b. Intellect is the coldness of knowing; will, by contrast, the darkness of doing.
3a. The darkness of doing is contrary to the light of being; for the world is antithetical to Heaven.
b. The coldness of knowing is contrary to the heat of feeling; for purgatory is antithetical to Hell.
4a. Hell is no-less contiguous with Heaven than ... soul with spirit.
b. The world is no-less contiguous with purgatory than ... will with intellect.

41a. God saves those who, ever beautiful, are bound to the deeds of the world.
b. The Devil damns those who, ever good, are free in the thoughts of purgatory.
42a. God can only save; for God is truth, and truth is blessed.
b. The Devil can only damn; for the Devil is strength, and strength is cursed.
43a. God has no interest in the Good; only in the Beautiful.
b. The Devil has no interest in the Beautiful; only in the Good.
44a. God can no more save the Devil, or the emotionally strong, than the Devil can damn God, or the spiritually true.
b. The Devil can no more damn God ... than God can save the Devil; strength and truth are incommensurable.

81a. From the truth of transcendentalism to the beauty of humanism via the goodness of nonconformism and the strength of fundamentalism.
b. From the illusion of anti-transcendentalism to the ugliness of anti-humanism via the weakness of anti-fundamentalism and the evil of anti-nonconformism.
82a. The Father, correlating with strength, is the 'God' of the upper class.
b. The Mother, correlating with beauty, is the 'God(dess)' of the lower class.
83a. The Son, correlating with goodness, is the 'God' of the middle class.
b. The Holy Spirit, correlating with truth, is the God of the classless.
84a. Both the Father and the Mother, as described above, are false gods, since neither strength nor beauty appertains to the divine.
b. The Son, as described above, is also a false god, since goodness does not appertain to the divine, whereas the Holy Spirit is the one true god ... inasmuch as truth, and truth alone, appertains to the divine.
85a. Hence a society which values truth above all else, even to the exclusion of strength, will be classless.
b. In contrast to that society which, valuing strength above all else, even to the exclusion of truth, is upper class.
86a. Hence a society which values beauty above all else, even to the exclusion of goodness, will be lower class.
b. In contrast to that society which, valuing goodness above all else, even to the exclusion of beauty, is middle class.
87a. A society which values truth above all else is divine, centred in transcendentalism.
b. A society which values strength above all else is diabolic, rooted in fundamentalism.
88a. A society which values beauty above all else is feminine, centred in humanism.
b. A society which values goodness above all else is masculine, rooted in nonconformism.
89a. Classless societies are alone capable, in their transcendentalism, of furthering the truth of God ... the Holy Spirit.
b. Class-bound societies, whether fundamentalist, humanist, or nonconformist, are incapable of furthering the truth of God ... the Holy Spirit; for they are not centred/rooted in God but in something less.
90a. The furthest removed from the truth of God ... the Holy Spirit ... are those societies rooted in strength, and hence the Devil.
b. For the Devil is that which, glorifying strength, is furthest removed from God, and hence the possibility of truth.
91a. The nearest to the truth of God ... the Holy Spirit ... are those societies centred in beauty, and hence woman.
b. For woman is that which, embodying beauty, is nearest to God, and thus to the possibility of truth.
92a. Further removed from the truth of God ... the Holy Spirit ... are those societies rooted in goodness, and hence man.
b. For man is that which, embodying goodness, is further removed (than woman) from God, and hence the possibility of truth.
93a. Those who affirm strength are the enemies of God ... whether their symbol of this affirmation be the Father, Allah, or anything else.
b. Such men are fundamentalist, and they relate, consciously or unconsciously, to upper-class values.
94a. Those who affirm beauty are friends of the world ... whether their symbol of this affirmation be the Blessed Virgin, Venus, or anything else.
b. Such men or, more usually, women are humanist, and they relate, consciously or unconsciously, to lower-class values.
95a. Those who affirm goodness are the enemies of the world ... whether their symbol of this affirmation be the Son, Mohammed, or anything else.
b. Such men are nonconformist, and they relate, consciously or unconsciously, to middle-class values.
96a. Those who affirm truth are the friends of God ... whether their symbol of this affirmation be the Holy Spirit, the Omega Point, or anything else.
b. Such people are transcendentalist, and they relate, consciously or unconsciously, to classless values.
97a. The real enemy of truth is not beauty or goodness but strength, and consequently God need only fear the Devil.
b. The real enemy of beauty is not strength or truth but goodness, and consequently woman need only fear man.
98a. God must accordingly fear the influence of the Devil which, under the banner of strength-affirming fundamentalism, opposes what is divine.
b. Woman must accordingly fear the influence of man who, under the banner of goodness-affirming nonconformism, opposes what is feminine.
99a. To oppose the divine is to affirm fundamentalism at the expense of transcendentalism, and thus to champion strength at truth's expense.
b. To oppose the feminine is to affirm nonconformism at the expense of humanism, and thus to champion goodness at beauty's expense.
100a. Ultimately the Devil can no more defeat God than man can defeat woman.
b. For strength is as ill-qualified to triumph over truth ... as goodness to undermine beauty.
101a. All strength can do is to keep those who are strong from the joys of truth.
b. All goodness can do is to keep those who are good from the pleasures of beauty.
102a. Conversely, all weakness can do is to keep those who are weak from the woes of illusion.
b. All evil can do is to keep those who are evil from the pains of ugliness.
103a. Illusion is for the anti-transcendentalist classless of the Judaic Antigod.
b. Weakness is for the anti-fundamentalist upper class of the despotic Antidevil.
104a. Ugliness is for the anti-humanist lower class of the republican Antivirgin.
b. Evil is for the anti-nonconformist middle class of the parliamentary Antichrist.
105a. If positive transcendentalism is truthful, then negative transcendentalism is illusory - the difference between God and Antigod.
b. If positive fundamentalism is strong, then negative fundamentalism is weak - the difference between the Devil and the Antidevil.
106a. If positive humanism is beautiful, then negative humanism is ugly - the difference between woman and antiwoman.
b. If positive nonconformism is good, then negative nonconformism is evil - the difference between man and antiman.
107a. God (the Holy Spirit) is Taoist, but the Antigod (Jehovah) is Judaic.
b. The Devil (The Father) is Islamic, but the Antidevil (Satan) is despotic.
108a. Woman (the Blessed Virgin) is Catholic, but the Antiwoman (the Cursed Whore) is republican.
b. Man (the Son) is Protestant, but the Antison (Antichrist) is parliamentary.
109a. Because the divine can be either negative or positive, Antigod or God, peace can likewise be negative or positive, of photon particles or wavicles in space.
b. Because the diabolic can be either negative or positive, Antidevil or Devil, war can likewise be negative or positive, of proton particles or wavicles in time.
110a. Because the feminine can be either negative or positive, antiwoman or woman, sex can likewise be negative or positive, of electron particles or wavicles in mass.
b. Because the masculine can be either negative or positive, antiman or man, sport can likewise be either negative or positive, of neutron particles or wavicles in volume.
111a. If God is inner peace and the Devil ... inner war, then the Antigod is outer peace and the Antidevil ... outer war.
b. If man is inner sport and woman ... inner sex, then the antiman is outer sport and the antiwoman ... outer sex.
112a. Inner peace is being in the space within; outer peace is antibeing in the antispace without.
b. Inner war is feeling in the time within; outer war is antifeeling in the time without.
113a. Inner sex is doing in the mass within; outer sex is antidoing in the mass without.
b. Inner sport is knowing in the volume within; outer sport is antiknowing in the volume without.
114a. Sex is the peace of the world, both inner and outer.
b. Sport is the war of purgatory, both inner and outer.
115a. The humanism of sex vis-à-vis the transcendentalism of peace.
b. The puritanism of sport vis-à-vis the fundamentalism of war.
116a. Sex is the darkness of phenomenal subjectivity; peace the light of noumenal subjectivity.
b. Sport is the coldness of phenomenal objectivity; war the heat of noumenal objectivity.
117a. Better the unholy peace of Antigod than the holy war of the Devil.
b. For the holy war is still war, and thus fundamentally diabolic.
118a. God is no more capable of war than the Devil of peace.
b. For God is light and the Devil ... fire.
119a. God is no-less noumenally extreme than the Devil, but God's is an extremity of the left rather than the right.
b. Woman is no-less phenomenally moderate than man, but woman's is a moderation of the left rather than the right.
120a. The extreme left of noumenal subjectivity vis-à-vis the extreme right of noumenal objectivity.
b. The moderate left of phenomenal subjectivity vis-à-vis the moderate right of phenomenal objectivity.
121a. Peace, like God, is extreme left, whereas war, like the Devil, is extreme right.

125a. The salvation of the world, or humanism, through God, or transcendentalism.
b. The damnation of purgatory, or nonconformism, through the Devil, or fundamentalism.
126a. From phenomenal subjectivity to noumenal subjectivity - a progression from the Moderate Left to the Extreme Left, the bound star to the bound cross.
b. From phenomenal objectivity to noumenal objectivity - a progression from the Moderate Right to the Extreme Right, the free cross to the free star.
127a. From the bound star of the world to the bound cross (supercross) of the heavenly Beyond.
b. From the free cross of purgatory to the free star (superstar) of the hellish Beyond.
128a. From feminine inner darkness to divine inner light.
b. From masculine inner coldness to diabolic inner heat.
129a. From Catholic humanism to Taoist transcendentalism.
b. From Protestant puritanism to Islamic fundamentalism.
130a. Conversely, from the bound antistar of the antiworld to the bound anticross (super-anticross) of the heavenly Behind.
b. From the free anticross of antipurgatory to the free antistar (super-antistar) of the hellish Behind.
131a. From feminine outer darkness to divine outer light.
b. From masculine outer coldness to diabolic outer heat.
132a. From republican anti-humanism to communist (Marxist) anti-transcendentalism.
b. From parliamentary anti-nonconformism to fascist anti-fundamentalism.
133a. Both Catholics and Protestants believe in a Beyond, but not in the same Beyond.
b. The Catholic Beyond ... of Taoist transcendentalism ... is actually a positive salvation; the Protestant Beyond ... of Islamic fundamentalism ... is effectively a positive damnation.
134a. From beauty to truth in the case of Catholics.
b. From goodness to strength in the case of Protestants.
135a. Both Republicans and Parliamentarians effectively believe in a Behind, but not in the same Behind.
b. The republican Behind ... of communist anti-transcendentalism ... is actually a negative salvation, the parliamentary Behind ... of fascist anti-fundamentalism ... is effectively a negative damnation.
136a. From ugliness to illusion in the case of republicans.
b. From evil to weakness in the case of parliamentarians.
137a. Both positive salvation and positive damnation in the transcendentalist and fundamentalist Beyonds are wavicle equivalents.
b. Both negative salvation and negative damnation in the anti-transcendentalist and anti-fundamentalist Behinds are particle equivalents.
138a. There is thus a progression from electron wavicles to photon wavicles in the case of positive salvation, and from neutron wavicles to proton wavicles in the case of positive damnation.
b. There is thus a regression from electron particles to photon particles in the case of negative salvation, and from neutron particles to proton particles in the case of negative damnation.
139a. We live in an age when the progressive options on salvation and damnation are more likely than the regressive ones.
b. Formerly, it was the regressive options which, with the threat of Communism/Fascism, seemed the more likely of the two.
140a. Such progressive options on salvation and damnation take the form of political religion rather than political science.
b. For political religion is to religion what political science is to science - a transitional means to a more complete Beyond or Behind, depending on the case.
141a. Fire and air both contain light, but the light of fire is outer, whereas the light of air is inner.
b. Firelight is the appearance of flame, whereas lightness is the essence of oxygen.
142a. Earth and water both contain substance, but the substance of earth is outer, whereas the substance of water is inner.
b. Darkness is the appearance of earth, whereas coldness is the essence of water.
143a. Substance is to a phenomenon what light is to a noumenon - its appearance/essence.
b. Whereas the appearance/essence of a phenomenon is tangible, the appearance/essence of a noumenon is intangible.
144a. I can touch the substance of both earth and water, but I cannot touch the 'substance' of either fire or air.
b. For light can only be seen and lightness felt, not touched.
145a. If I endeavour to touch fire I will be burnt by its essence, which is heat.
b. If I endeavour to touch air I will be cooled by its essence, which is lightness.
146a. Being noumenal, both heat, the essence of fire, and lightness, the essence of air, are beyond the scope of tangible verification.
b. But I can feel both the essence of fire and the essence of air, whilst I can see the appearance of fire (flame) and the 'appearance' of air (light).
147a. Were there no air I would not be able to see light, nor to feel lightness.
b. Were there no fire I would not be able to feel flame, nor to see firelight.
148a. Firelight differs from light as the appearance of flame from the 'appearance' of air.
b. Heat differs from lightness as the essence of flame from the essence of air.
149a. The appearance of flame is dark compared with the 'appearance' of air.
b. The essence of flame is heavy compared with the essence of air.
150a. Dark and heavy, like earth and water, fire is no match for the light/lightness of air.
b. For air is the one element capable, in its durable transcendence, of taking one to God.
151a. Borne on the lightness of air to the light of being, wherein the photon is at one-with-itself.
b. Carried on a joyful wave to the wisdom of truth, wherein the spirit is at peace-with-itself.
152a. A peace that surpasses all understanding because it is not one-with-the-intellect but one-with-the-spirit.
b. The peace of a supreme being in the joyful beatitude of its spiritual transcendence.
153a. A peace of space once removed from the sex of mass, twice removed from the sport of volume, and thrice removed from the war of time.
b. A being that has left not only will but intellect and soul behind in its spiritual wake, thereby becoming supreme.
154a. Although closest in appearance to the Divine, the upper class are thrice removed from it in essence.
b. Although closer (compared to the lower class) in appearance to the Divine, the middle class are twice removed from it in essence.
155a. Although the least close in appearance to the Divine, the lower class are only once removed from it in essence.
b. For the Divine is the noumenal subjectivity of a photon-wavicle transcendence, which is classless.
156a. The upper class, being fundamentalist, are the class par excellence of the Devil, viz. war and time.
b. The middle class, being nonconformist, are the class par excellence of man, viz. sport and volume.
157a. The lower class, being humanist, are the class par excellence of woman, viz. sex and mass.
b. The classless, being transcendentalist, are the People par excellence of God, viz. peace and space.
158a. A divine world would be one in which only classlessness, relative to God, prevailed.
b. Such a divine world would be above the conflicting class interests of the Devil, man, and woman.
159a. Neither the Father, the Son, nor the Mother ... would have any place in a divine world.
b. Only the Holy Spirit would prevail there, and prevail for all eternity ... of timeless, volumeless, massless space.
160a. A divine world would be centred on the truth of peace and space.
b. Neither the strength of war and time, the goodness of sport and volume, nor the beauty of sex and mass would exist there.
161a. The feeling of soul, the knowing of intellect, and the doing of will could have no place in Heaven.
b. For Heaven is the divine world, which is the being of spirit.
162a. Such a being is transcendentalist, and contrasts absolutely with the feeling of soul, which is fundamentalist.
b. For the feeling of soul is the diabolic world, which is Hell.
163a. Another way of describing Heaven is to speak of an ideal world, but such a description would be from a scientific rather than a religious point-of-view.
b. Likewise one could describe Hell as a naturalistic world, but such a description would be scientific rather than religious.
164a. Doubtless, those who relate to God prefer the use of religious to scientific terminology.
b. Just as those who relate to the Devil prefer the use of scientific to religious terminology.
165a. To describe scientific fundamentalism in terms of religious transcendentalism is the mark of a divine being, or god.
b. To describe religious transcendentalism in terms of scientific fundamentalism is the mark of a diabolic being or, rather, feeling - a devil.
166a. As illogical for a truly religious person to describe scientific fundamentalism in terms of scientific terminology ... as for a genuinely scientific person to describe religious transcendentalism in terms of religious terminology.
b. A man of God would no more speak in terms of naturalism, materialism, realism, or idealism ... than a man of the Devil would speak in terms of Hell, purgatory, the world, or Heaven.
167a. To speak of an ideal world is therefore to describe Heaven from a scientific, and hence fundamentalist or, more correctly, antifundamentalist point-of-view.
b. To speak of a divine world is therefore to describe Heaven from a religious, and hence transcendentalist, point-of-view.
168a. To cross over from scientific to religious terminology, or vice versa, is the mark of the in-between phenomenality of both nonconformism and humanism.
b. Yet nonconformism, being political, will have a bias towards scientific terminology, whereas humanism, being economic, will have a bias towards religious terminology.
169a. It nonetheless follows that nonconformism will prefer, when true to itself, to approach the noumenal extremes of science and religion from its own political point-of-view.
b. Nonconformism will therefore speak of authoritarianism in lieu of naturalism/hell on the one hand and of totalitarianism in lieu of idealism/heaven on the other hand.
170a. Likewise, it should be emphasized that humanism, when true to itself, will prefer to approach the noumenal extremes of science and religion from its own economic point-of-view.
b. Thus it will speak of Fascism in lieu of naturalism/hell on the one hand and of Communism in lieu of idealism/heaven on the other hand.
171a. Such specifically nonconformist and humanist terminology will reflect a necessarily partial and limited point-of-view ... relative to each of the phenomenal ideological positions in question.
b. Whereas use of either scientific or religious terminology by nonconformists and humanists will do greater justice to the noumenal ideological positions to which, alternatively or otherwise, they may pertain.
172a. As unlikely for a genuine scientist, or man of the Devil, to regard either himself or, more correctly, his self as diabolic ... as for a genuine priest, or man of God, to regard his self as ideal.
b. The genuine scientist can no more face-up to his self from a religious point-of-view ... than the genuine priest can face-down to his self from a scientific point-of-view.
173a. Scientists who can and do face-up to their emotional self from a religious point-of-view are more likely to be either nonconformist or humanist (though especially the latter) quasi-scientists than the genuine noumenally extreme article.
b. Priests who can and do face-down to their spiritual self from a scientific point-of-view are more likely to be humanist or nonconformist (though especially the latter) quasi-priests than the genuine noumenally extreme article.
174a. In the case of quasi-scientists, a parliamentary or a republican bias ... as relative to nonconformist and humanist systems respectively.
b. In the case of quasi-priests, a Catholic or a Protestant bias ... as relative to humanist and nonconformist systems respectively.
175a. The genuine scientist is more germane to fundamentalist systems than to other types of system.
b. The genuine priest is more germane to transcendentalist systems than to other types of system.
176a. Conversely, the least genuine and/or most spurious scientist is likely to be found in transcendentalist systems.
b. While the least genuine and/or most spurious priest is likely to be found in fundamentalist systems.
177a. Because fundamentalism can be either alpha or omega, despotic or clerical, it follows that the most spurious priest will be found in the former type of fundamentalist system.
b. Because transcendentalism can be either alpha or omega, lawful or spiritual, it follows that the most spurious scientist will be found in the latter type of transcendentalist system.
178a. Hence the most spurious priest is likely to be found - if at all - within a despotic fundamentalist system.
b. While the most spurious scientist is likely to be found - if at all - within a spiritual transcendentalist system.
179a. Priests within a clerical fundamentalist system are simply least genuine.
b. Scientists within a lawful transcendentalist system are likewise least genuine.
180a. The most genuine priests will always be found within a spiritual transcendentalist system, like Taoism.
b. The most genuine scientists will always be found within a despotic fundamentalist system, like Fascism.
181a. Taoists are one-with-God and therefore blessed.
b. Fascists are one- or, rather, many-with-the-Devil, and therefore cursed.

b. The will of economics runs the world in terms of fascism, socialism, capitalism, and communism.
185a. Light, the element of space, is the illusion/truth of religious transcendentalism.
b. Fire, the element of time, is the weakness/strength of scientific fundamentalism.

195a. The metaphysical self is noumenal subjectivity, but the physical self is phenomenal subjectivity.
b. The metaphysical not-self is noumenal objectivity, but the physical not-self is phenomenal objectivity.
196a. Faith is the wavicle blessing of joyful truth; despair the particle curse of woeful illusion.
b. Confidence is the wavicle blessing of proud strength; anger the particle curse of humiliating weakness.
197a. Desire is the wavicle blessing of loving goodness; revulsion the particle curse of hateful evil.
b. Hope is the wavicle blessing of pleasurable beauty; fear the particle curse of painful ugliness.

203a. Objectivism of the not-self that, being diabolic, is at variance with Heaven, and therefore of Hell.
b. Objectivity of the not-self that, being masculine, is at variance with the world, and therefore of purgatory.
204a. The world can pass beyond the feminine to the divine, and thus achieve noumenal salvation.
b. Yet purgatory cannot become divine, but either diabolic or feminine, depending on whether it is damned or achieves relative salvation in a worldly rebirth.
205a. Thus salvation for the physical not-self lies in the physical self of worldly rebirth.
b. Whereas damnation for the physical not-self lies in the metaphysical not-self of diabolic death.
206a. The metaphysical not-self cannot become the metaphysical self, any more than the Devil can become God.
b. All the metaphysical not-self can do, if positive, is devolve into the physical self of worldly rebirth and await the salvation to Eternal Life which follows from a mundane precondition.
207a. The feminine/physical self of electron will is the death-in-life which can become the divine/metaphysical self of photon spirit, with Eternal Life.
b. The masculine/physical not-self of neutron intellect is the life-in-death which can become the diabolic/ metaphysical not-self of proton soul, with Eternal Death.

b. Re-death, so to speak, comes when the masculine lion, in rejecting the world, is overtaken by the Devil, becoming indistinguishable from Hell.
211a. Nonconformism either embraces humanism or slides towards fundamentalism, wherein it is damned.
b. For nonconformism cannot be saved from the fate that awaits it ... in the event of its rejecting the world.

455a. When philosophy is literary, it is essayistic; when philosophy is religious, it is aphoristic.
b. When philosophy is most true to itself, it is metaphysical; when philosophy is least true to itself, it is merely physical.
456a. Metaphysical philosophy is no more a branch of science ... than physics is a branch of religion.
b. Yet metaphysics is the most fundamental branch of religion.
457a. From being transcendentalist in literature, philosophy becomes fundamentalist in religion.
b. Hence the distinction between essayistic and aphoristic philosophy is effectively of literary omega and religious alpha.

b. The ethical theology of Christ, as opposed to the ritualistic philosophy of the Father and the devotional theosophy of the Holy Spirit.
459a. Sexology stands to theology as the Mother to the Son.

462a. Protestant theology rejects the world, and hence sexual aesthetics.
b. Catholic sexology embraces the world, and hence its aesthetics of sex.
463a. Rejecting the world, Protestant theology commits nonconformist hubris against it.
b. Embracing the world, Catholic sexology affirms the humanist rights of the Mother, and hence by implication of women generally.
464a. The rejection of the world by the world leads to Heaven.
b. The rejection of the world by purgatory can only lead to Hell.
465a. If the world is to achieve theosophical salvation, it will have to reject its own sexological humanism.
b. Such a denial of the will paves the way for affirmation of the spirit, and hence theosophical transcendentalism.
466a. If purgatory is to suffer philosophical damnation, it will have to reject its own theological nonconformism.
b. Such a denial of the intellect paves the way for affirmation of the soul, and hence metaphysical fundamentalism.
467a. There is no sense in which denial of the theological intellect paves the way for theosophical salvation.
b. For even if purgatory wished to avoid metaphysical damnation, it would not be able to affirm the will, and hence the world, having once rejected the intellect.
468a. Having traditionally denied the will from the standpoint of its own theological nonconformism, it would serve purgatory no good to affirm sexological humanism in the face of those who were then denying it from within the world itself.

b. Classical is essentially and primarily strings, whereas romantic is essentially and primarily keyboards.
480a. Pop stands to jazz as the Devil to God, whereas romantic stands to classical as man to woman.
b. For pop is the music of fire-breathing devils and jazz the music of air-blowing gods, whereas romantic is the music of water-churning men and classical the music of earth-turning women.
481a. Although usually making use of it, jazz transcends percussion as wind transcends drums, whereas pop is fundamentally dependent on percussion, since one-with-the-fiery-beat.
b. Both classical and romantic are beneath percussion in the fundamentalist and transcendentalist senses in which it applies to pop and jazz.
482a. Conductors are to classical and romantic what drummers are to pop and jazz - except that they function at a transcendentalist and/or fundamentalist remove from the actual performance.
b. This is because neither God nor the Devil is an integral part of classical and romantic, and its soul, or interpretation, must therefore reside beyond the realm of actual performance, inspiring it from without.
483a. With classical music, the conductor functions as God, whereas with romantic music ... the conductor is akin to the Devil.
b. This is because the world, being classical, affirms the transcendentalism of God, whereas purgatory, being romantic, affirms the fundamentalism of the Devil.
484a. The classical conductor is akin to a photon ... shedding light.
b. The romantic conductor is akin to a proton ... burning bright.
485a. The photon is the true nucleus of the atom.
b. The proton is only the nucleus of the atom conceived from a Western point-of-view.
486a. Western civilization has its starting-point in the sun, and hence the proton.
b. Eastern civilization has its starting-point in the central star of the Galaxy, and hence the photon.
487a. Western civilization is rooted not in space but in time, and thereby affirms a diabolic foundation.
b. Eastern civilization, being rooted in space rather than in time, affirms a divine foundation.
488a. The sun is akin to a proton revolving around the centre of the Galaxy.
b. The earth is akin to an electron revolving around the sun.
489a. The moon is akin to a neutron revolving around the earth.
b. Thus the moon and the earth together revolve around something which in turn revolves around something greater than itself.
490a. The nearest human equivalent to this is to be found in the ordering of society in such a way that a child revolves around its mother, who in turn revolves around her husband, whose status is akin to the sun revolving around the central star of the Galaxy, which has its familial parallel in the role of the so-called godfather, who in some sense is revolved around by the father.
b. Yet such an ordering would be on a particle, and hence secular, basis, with, for instance, communist, fascist, parliamentary, and republican parallels, as one descended from 'godfather' to father, child, and mother.
491a. It would therefore be fundamentally immoral rather than moral, and not something of which the Church could approve.
b. For the Church in some sense establishes sexual relations between men and women on a wavicle, and hence religious, basis, which rather confirms the male progenitor's status, following procreation, to be akin to the Father rather than (as would otherwise be the case) to the Antifather (and hence Satan).
492a. Sanctified by the Church, the male progenitor-to-be is confirmed in the 'Christian' fatherhood (of proton wavicles), and thus elevated beyond the heathen fatherhood that would otherwise attend a secular marriage or, indeed, procreation outside of marriage.
b. Such a heathen fatherhood is Satanic by dint of having a diabolic correlation (in proton particles) which parallels the sun in its scientific naturalism.
493a. Thus while religious marriage sanctifies procreation by elevating the father-to-be to the fundamentalist status of the Father, secular marriage keeps him on the satanic level of a diabolic naturalism.
b. Such a level would exist more absolutely for procreation outside of marriage, wherein one is dealing with bastards and bitches as offspring of the Antifather, or negative Devil.
494a. Sex outside of marriage that does not result in procreation remains affiliated to the moon, and hence to the Antichrist, as far as the male is concerned.
b. Such sex is effectively pre-adult, or juvenile, to the extent that it accords with the materialism of neutron particles, and is accordingly barren.
495a. The masculine becomes diabolic, following procreation, whether negatively or positively, with regard to secular or religious parenthood.
b. Such diabolism is at the furthest possible remove from salvation, which is a divine achievement.
496a. God-the-Father is the god of fathers who were married in church, whereas the Antifather is the antigod of fathers whose marriage (if at all) was secular.
b. God-the-Son is the god of sons who are virgins, whereas the Antichrist is the antigod of sons who have sex before marriage.
497a. Goddess-the-Mother is the goddess of mothers who were married in church, whereas the Antimother is the antigoddess of mothers whose marriage (if at all) was secular.
b. God-the-Holy-Spirit is the god of daughters who are virgins, whereas the Antispirit is the antigod of daughters who have sex before marriage.
498a. The sins/graces of the Antifather/Father are visited upon their respective sons.
b. The sins/graces of the Antimother/Mother are visited upon their respective daughters.
499a. Married women are akin to electrons bound to proton autocracies, whether negative or positive.
b. Marriage is incompatible with freedom from autocratic power, and is thus a reflection of worldly subjection.
500a. A woman is not truly liberated until she is free from marital subjection.
b. Likewise, the People are not truly liberated until they are free from political subjection.
501a. Subjects are no-less bound to autocratic power than married women.
b. A free, or republican, society will not be one to impede the liberation of women from marital enslavement. Rather, it will encourage and further such liberation.
502a. People's republics are akin to free electrons, and are accordingly feminist and socialist.
b. Until the People are free ... from proton and/or neutron power, they cannot be true to themselves and able, thereafter, to achieve liberation from themselves ... in God.
503a. Deliverance from the electron self of phenomenal subjectivity is only possible through God (the Second Coming), and presupposes the democratic assumption of religious sovereignty.
b. Such an assumption is equivalent to a transmutation from electron subjectivity to photon subjectivity (subjectivism), and will only be desirable to a people well acquainted with electron wavicles.
504a. Electron wavicles are the traditional preserve of Catholicism, and it is from Catholicism and kindred religions that the will to salvation (in photon wavicles) becomes manifest.
b. Thus will the 'inner light' of the Holy Spirit eclipse the world, with its electron darkness.
505a. Social Transcendentalism is a bridge between the world and Heaven, a bridge leading from the feminine to the Divine.
b. Social Transcendentalism is thus the opposite of Transcendental Socialism, or Marxism, which leads from Communism to the world.
506a. The world is neither transcendentally Socialist nor socially Transcendentalist, but socialist.
b. Socialism is the electron darkness which paves the way for the 'inner light' of transcendentalism.
507a. The effective enemy of transcendentalism is not humanism, nor even fundamentalism, but nonconformism.
b. Nonconformism blocks the way to transcendentalism by seducing the world, and hence the People, with promises of material gain.
508a. Not until nonconformism is neutralized by fundamentalism ... will the humanist world be free to turn its attention towards transcendentalism, and thus God.
b. The Devil may therefore be regarded as indirectly serving God's cause ... by neutralizing purgatory.
509a. So long as the middle class are free to oppress and seduce the lower class, the latter will not achieve classless salvation.
b. So long as cultural and philosophical 'excellence' is monopolized by the middle class, the lower class will not have access to the higher culture and philosophy of classless leaders.
510a. In any ultimate sense, culture is the preserve of the divine classless, whether alpha or omega, idealist or transcendentalist.
b. The opposite of culture is not civilization but nature, and nature is generally the preserve of the mundane lower class, whether realist (and negative) or humanist (and positive).
511a. The chief enemy of nature is civilization, and civilization, whether materialist (and negative) or nonconformist (and positive), is generally the preserve of the urban(e) bourgeoisie.
b. The opposite of civilization is not nature but barbarism, and barbarism is generally the preserve of the diabolic upper class, whether naturalist (and negative) or fundamentalist (and positive).
512a. Both Judaism and Taoism are cultured - the former negatively ... vis-à-vis the Antigod and the latter positively ... vis-à-vis God.
b. Both Despotism and Islam are barbarous - the former negatively vis-à-vis the Antidevil and the latter positively vis-à-vis the Devil.
513a. Both Parliamentarianism and Protestantism are civilized - the former negatively ... vis-à-vis the Antichrist and the latter positively ... vis-à-vis Christ.
b. Both Republicanism and Catholicism are natural - the former negatively ... vis-à-vis the Antivirgin and the latter positively ... vis-à-vis the Virgin.
514a. It could be said, over-and-above obviously pedantic distinctions, that whereas culture is essentially religious, nature is essentially economic.
b. Likewise, it could be said that whereas civilization is essentially political, barbarism is essentially scientific.
515a. Hence the religious essence of Judaism and Taoism as opposed to the economic essence of Republicanism and Catholicism.
b. Hence, too, the political essence of Parliamentarianism and Nonconformism as opposed to the scientific essence of Despotism and Mohammedanism.
516a. God is by nature a religious entity, and the Devil a scientific one.
b. Man is by nature a political animal, and woman an economic one.
517a. The cultural essence of light/air as opposed to the natural essence of darkness/earth.
b. The civilized essence of coldness/water as opposed to the barbarous essence of heat/fire.
518a. Hence the religious significance of light/air as against the scientific significance of heat/fire.
b. Hence the political significance of coldness/water as against the economic significance of darkness/earth.
519a. Negative nature has to do with natural law (worldly determinism) and negative culture with supernatural law (heavenly determinism).
b. Negative civilization has to do with antinatural law (purgatorial determinism) and negative barbarism with anti-supernatural law (or hellish determinism).
520a. Positive nature has to do with natural lawlessness (worldly freedom) and positive culture with supernatural lawlessness (heavenly freedom).
b. Positive civilization has to do with antinatural lawlessness (purgatorial freedom), and positive barbarism with anti-supernatural lawlessness (hellish freedom).
521a. The law, whether ecclesiastical (heavenly), criminal (hellish), civil (purgatorial), or natural (worldly), is the determinism that inheres to the particle aspect of any given element, be it photon, proton, neutron, or electron.
b. The lawless, whether heavenly (ecclesiastical), hellish (criminal), purgatorial (civil), or worldly (natural), is the freedom that inheres to the wavicle aspect of any given element, be it photon, proton, neutron, or electron.
522a. Freedom on any given level, whether religious, scientific, political, or economic, is from particle determinism.
b. For particle determinism is that which, accruing to the alpha as opposed to the omega of things, binds men to law, and thus suffering.
523a. Whether the law be supernatural and religious, anti-supernatural and scientific, antinatural and political, or natural and economic, the negative consequence of enslavement to particle determinism is always the same; all that differs is the form.
b. Only in the lawlessness of wavicle freedom can man know joy or pride or love or pleasure, depending on the type of lawlessness in question, be it religious, scientific, political, or economic.
524a. The woe of supernatural determinism vis-à-vis the joy of supernatural freedom.
b. The humility of anti-supernatural determinism vis-à-vis the pride of anti-supernatural freedom.
525a. The hate of antinatural determinism vis-à-vis the love of antinatural freedom.
b. The pain of natural determinism vis-à-vis the pleasure of natural freedom.
526a. Where photon wavicles preponderate over particles, there will be more culture than religion; for culture is the essence of religion.
b. Where, conversely, photon particles predominate over wavicles, there will be more religion than culture; for religion is the appearance of culture.
527a. Where proton wavicles preponderate over particles, there will be more barbarism than science; for barbarism is the essence of science.
b. Where, conversely, proton particles predominate over wavicles, there will be more science than barbarism; for science is the appearance of barbarism.
528a. Where neutron wavicles preponderate over particles, there will be more civilization than politics; for civilization is the essence of politics.
b. Where, conversely, neutron particles predominate over wavicles, there will be more politics than civilization; for politics is the appearance of civilization.
529a. Where electron wavicles preponderate over particles, there will be more nature than economics; for nature is the essence of economics.
b. Where, conversely, electron particles predominate over wavicles, there will be more economics than nature; for economics is the appearance of nature.
530a. Wavicle freedom from particle determinism on the photon spectrum of light/spirit is essentially cultural freedom from religion.
b. Wavicle freedom from particle determinism on the proton spectrum of heat/soul is essentially barbarous freedom from science.
531a. Wavicle freedom from particle determinism on the neutron spectrum of coldness/intellect is essentially civilized freedom from politics.
b. Wavicle freedom from particle determinism on the electron spectrum of darkness/will is essentially natural freedom from economics.
532a. To be transcendentally free from the Idealism of Judaic religion in Taoist culture.
b. To be fundamentally free from the naturalism of despotic science in Islamic barbarism.
533a. To be puritanically free from the materialism of parliamentary politics in Protestant civilization.
b. To be humanistically free from the realism of republican economics in Catholic nature.
534a. If one is free, it is because one is Taoist, Islamic, Protestant, or Catholic.
b. If one is not free, it is because one is Judaic, despotic, parliamentary, or republican.
535a. Relative to particle determinism, wavicle freedom is a kind of salvation.
b. Relative to wavicle freedom, particle determinism is a kind of damnation.
536a. The Saved are blessed by the wavicle essence of a freedom beyond particle appearances.
b. The Damned are cursed by the particle appearance of a determinism beneath wavicle essence.
537a. Saved from the curse of Judaic law (religion) by the blessing of Taoist freedom (culture).
b. Saved from the curse of despotic law (science) by the blessing of Islamic freedom (barbarism).
538a. Saved from the curse of parliamentary law (politics) by the blessing of Protestant freedom (civilization).
b. Saved from the curse of republican law (economics) by the blessing of Catholic freedom (nature).
539a. Culture liberates the heavenly from the clutches of (supernatural) religion.
b. Barbarism liberates the hellish from the clutches of (anti-supernatural) science.
540a. Civilization liberates the purgatorial from the clutches of (antinatural) politics.
b. Nature liberates the worldly from the clutches of (natural) economics.
541a. Liberation from religious slavery in the name of the Holy Spirit.
b. Liberation from scientific slavery in the name of the Father.
542a. Liberation from political slavery in the name of the Son.
b. Liberation from economic slavery in the name of the Mother.
543a. It is not enough, however, to be liberated from lower forms of tyranny.
b. Even the Liberated must be liberated from their lower freedoms, in order that they may experience the ultimate liberation of the Holy Spirit.
544a. For the ultimate struggle is not against tyranny, but against lower forms of liberation.
b. Ultimately, the ultimate struggle is waged in the name of the Holy Spirit against the Mother, the Son, and the Father.
545a. For that which is not cultural and heavenly, but natural and worldly, civilized and purgatorial, or barbarous and hellish, is not ultimate but relative to lower forms of liberation.
b. Such forms, while they may persist for a time, cannot last for ever; for they are not centred in the spirit.
546a. Even the soul ... of barbarous liberation ... cannot last for ever, but must eventually bow to the spirit, in order to embrace the heavenly.
b. For Heaven is the beginning and end of all life - the beginning of it in the photon particles of the Clear Light, and the end of it in the photon wavicles of the Holy Spirit.
547a. As in the beginning, so in the end ... except that the heavenly will shine inwardly, through wavicle freedom, and thus stand at the farthest possible remove from its inception in particle determinism.
b. Such a transcendent divinity ... of the 'inner light' of spirit ... will last for ever, in complete accord with its wavicle essence.
548a. There is no other God than this, the god of cultural fulfilment, and it is this God that will replace all the 'lesser gods' of imperfect liberation.
b. For the 'inner light' is alone perfect, and in the perfection of its wavicle shining the spirit is revealed - the free spirit of the Holy Ghost.
549a. Pitch is the heavenly element in music, corresponding to noumenal subjectivity.
b. Rhythm is the hellish element in music, corresponding to noumenal objectivity.
550a. Melody is the purgatorial element in music, corresponding to phenomenal objectivity.
b. Harmony is the worldly element in music, corresponding to phenomenal subjectivity.
551a. It could therefore be said that whereas pitch is religious/cultural, rhythm is scientific/barbarous.
b. It could likewise be said that whereas melody is
political/civilized, harmony is economic/natural.
552a. Pitch is religious when outer and cultural when inner - the former truncated (photon particles) and the latter elongated (photon wavicles).
b. Rhythm is scientific when outer and barbarous when inner - the former loud (proton particles) and the latter soft (proton wavicles).
553a. Melody is political when outer and civilized when inner - the former staccato (neutron particles) and the latter legato (neutron wavicles).
b. Harmony is economic when outer and natural when inner - the former harsh (electron particles) and the latter smooth (electron wavicles).
554a. Vocals stand to pitch, rhythm, melody, and harmony as law to religion, science, politics, and economics.
b. For vocals are a manifestation of particle determinism.
555a. Wavicle freedom in music can only be achieved at the expense of vocals.
b. The freer the music the less it will have to do with vocals, whether pitchfully, rhythmically, melodically, or harmonically.
556a. All the best music, being expressive of wavicle freedom, is instrumental.
b. All the worst music, being expressive of particle determinism, is vocal.
557a. Broadly, classical and jazz are instrumental kinds of music.
b. By contrast, pop and rock are generally vocal kinds of music.
558a. The free man masters instrumental music, the slave remains enslaved to vocal music.
b. Even religious vocal music is a manifestation of particle determinism ... to the extent that it reflects allegiance to the outer light, and thus to photon particles.
559a. Singing is objective and centrifugal, blowing (into a wind instrument) subjective and centripetal.
b. A similar, albeit less-elevated distinction, exists between the burning of joss sticks and the smoking of cigarettes.
560a. The free-standing singer approximates to the Antigod (Jehovah), the singing drummer to the Antifather (Satan).
b. The singing pianist approximates to the Antison (Antichrist), the singing guitarist to the Antimother (Cursed Whore).
561a. Blessed are they who, free from singing, are bound to their saxophone or hand drum or organ or violin.
b. Rare are the saxophonists, hand-drummers, organists, violinists ... who also sing.
562a. Instruments on the wavicle side of the musical divide, which are played with an attractive technique, i.e. bowing, blowing, etc., are specifically germane to instrumentalists.
b. Instruments on the particle side of the musical divide, which are played with a reactive technique, i.e. strumming, banging, etc., are easily subordinated to singers.
563a. The idealistic singing of the free-standing singer as opposed to the naturalistic singing of the drummer.
b. The materialistic singing of the pianist as opposed to the realistic singing of the guitarist.
564a. Wind, e.g. saxophone, transcendentalism as opposed to percussive, e.g. hand-drum, fundamentalism.
b. Keyboard, e.g. organ, nonconformism as opposed to string, e.g. violin, humanism.
565a. Classical music, centred in humanism, rarely rises above nonconformism.
b. Jazz, centred in transcendentalism, rarely falls beneath fundamentalism.
566a. Classical may do musical justice to the world, but only jazz can do musical justice to God (the Holy Spirit).
b. For it takes a music centred in wind, rather than strings, to do adequate justice to the Divine.
567a. Physical work being a curse of the Devil, manual workers are the natural enemies of God.
b. There can be no 'right to work' in a free, or civil, society; only in diabolic societies would such a 'right', transformed into an obligation, be upheld.
568a. The world is also cursed by work - as witness the domestic slavery, traditionally, of women.
b. Whether one's work be domestic and worldly, or industrial and hellish, or commercial and purgatorial, or agricultural and heavenly, work is a curse which has to be escaped from, if freedom is to prevail.
569a. No society is truly free so long as there are people who have to work for a living.
b. For work keeps people enslaved to particle determinism, and thus prevents the realization of wavicle freedom.
570a. A society which strikes a balance between work and play, on whatever elemental spectrum, is neither bound nor free but atomic.
b. Such a society, torn between particles and wavicles, may be morally superior to a slave society, but it can only be morally inferior to a truly free one!
571a. Particles work but wavicles play - the former collectively and the latter individually.
b. Easier to work in the collective than to work individually, but easier to play individually than to play in the collective.
572a. Primitive religion subordinates the individual to the collective, subjective wavicles to objective particles.
b. True religion or, rather, culture ... subordinates the collective to the individual, objective particles to subjective wavicles.
573a. For primitive religion reflects the enslavement of mankind to particle determinism, whereas culture advances the spiritual freedom of the individual.
b. True freedom cannot be advanced except by and in the individual personally.
574a. The State exists to protect and advance the material interests of the community.
b. The Church exists to protect and advance the spiritual interests of the individual.
575a. Socialism is concerned with the material wellbeing of society.
b. Transcendentalism is concerned with the spiritual wellbeing of the individual.
576a. Society can dispense money to needy individuals collectively, but it cannot dispense spirit to needy individuals separatively.
b. No-one can cultivate the spirit for you, since that is an entirely individual affair.
577a. False, or primitive, religion can dispense antispirit which, as light, blinds the individual to his spirit.
b. Such light is dispensed by cameras and films, and it simply enslaves the individual to particle determinism.
578a. Photography is rooted in the outer light of photon particles, and confers a false salvation upon those whom it snaps.
b. To be saved to photograph is to be saved negatively ... in the form only.
579a. Such a false salvation, equivalent to fascist idealism, blinds the individual to his spirit by keeping him chained to external appearances.
b. Such external appearances, rooted in the outer light of photon particles, are at the farthest remove from God.
580a. For God (the Holy Spirit ... of photon wavicles) is pure essence, whereas photographic images, corresponding to the Antigod (the Unholy Spirit ... of photon particles) are pure appearances - the outer form, or image, of the person, thing, animal, or whatever, that has been snapped.
b. The more spiritual the person - the more, in other words, one is given to the 'inner light' of photon wavicles - the less he can abide photographs/photography.
581a. The truly free man is beyond photography, because he is bound to his spirit and not to the outer light, which is its antithesis.
b. Such a binding is true salvation, and it contrasts absolutely with the false salvation of the photographic image.
582a. To distinguish, further, between the unholy spirit of the still camera and the unholy soul of the movie camera - a distinction, effectively, between photon particles and proton particles.
b. Whereas the still camera confers a false, or outer, salvation, the movie camera confers a false, or outer, damnation.
583a. The flicker of photographic images in movie films is akin to the flickering of flame, whereas the flash of photographic images in still film is akin to the flashing of light.
b. The above distinction has its parallel in that between burning candles and, say, open fires - the former relatively still and the latter raging furiously.
584a. Being filmed by movie camera is to be damned to the outer heat of proton particles, the photographic images of which rage furiously on screen.
b. Such a negative damnation is at an antithetical remove from the positive damnation of proton wavicles, or inner heat.
585a. The more a man is given to the inner heat of proton wavicles, the less he can abide the outer heat of its particle antithesis.
b. Inner heat, or soul, stands to outer heat, or fire, as the Devil (the Father) to the Antidevil (Satan), or the Holy Soul (of proton wavicles) to the Unholy Soul (of proton particles).
586a. The more soul a man has, the less he can abide flame, and thus, by implication, movie films.
b. Fire is as much the negative enemy of the emotional man, or fundamentalist, as light is the negative enemy of the spiritual man, or transcendentalist.
587a. Thus will the truly emotional man shun movie cameras/films, preferring the positive damnation of the inner heat to the negative damnation of the outer heat.
b. For the particle naturalism of movie cameras/films is at complete variance with his wavicle fundamentalism, and such a variance can only bind him to external moving images, to the detriment of his soul.
588a. If, in the modern context of humanized artifice, still cameras/films are akin to Judaism, then movie cameras/films are equivalent to a Satanic fall from Jehovah.
b. Such a fall ... from the outer light of photon particles to the outer heat of proton particles ... is negatively hellish, and thus even worse than the negative heaven of still cameras/films.
589a. Strictly speaking, there is nothing photographically worse than the outer heat of movie cameras/films, and only he who is One with the Satanic Antidevil ... will revel in them.
b. It is quite logical for a man who is given to still photography to scorn the moving image, just as it is logical, from an antithetical viewpoint, for a man given to spirit to scorn the soul.
590a. One can no more be an idealist and a naturalist simultaneously than ... a transcendentalist and a fundamentalist.
b. Idealism, rooted in the Unholy Spirit of the Antigod, excludes naturalism, no less than transcendentalism, centred in the Holy Spirit of God, excludes fundamentalism.
591a. Conversely, naturalism, rooted in the Unholy Soul of the Antidevil, excludes idealism, no less than fundamentalism, centred in the Holy Soul of the Devil, excludes transcendentalism.
b. Either one is for the light or the heat, as, alternatively, for the spirit or the soul.
592a. Those who are with the outer light may fall into the outer heat, but they cannot become one with the inner light.
b. Conversely, those who are with the inner light may fall into the inner heat, but they cannot become one with the outer light.
593a. The inner light of spirit excludes the outer light of antispirit, no less than the inner heat of soul excludes the outer heat of antisoul.
b. For spirit and soul are no mere extrapolations from light and heat, but their polar antitheses, and no man can be outer and inner simultaneously.
594a. The photon particle is fundamentally outer and the photon wavicle essentially inner, and therefore we are not dealing with one but with two photon elements - one that is selfless because it lacks a self, and one that is selfish because it is all self.
b. Similarly, the proton particle is fundamentally outer and the proton wavicle essentially inner, and therefore we are not dealing with one but with two proton elements - one that is selfless because it lacks a self, and one that is selfish because it is all self.
595a. The photographer and the meditator are therefore as antithetical as it is possible for photon equivalents to be.
b. Likewise, the film-maker and the worshipper are as antithetical as it is possible for proton equivalents to be.
596a. The meditator is no more an extrapolation from the photographer ... than photon wavicles are extrapolations from photon particles.
b. Likewise, the worshipful devotee at his prayers is no more an extrapolation from the (cinecamera-wielding) film-maker ... than proton wavicles are extrapolations from proton particles.
597a. Photon particles contain their own lesser wavicles and photon wavicles their own lesser particles.
b. Proton particles contain their own lesser wavicles and proton wavicles their own lesser particles.
598a. The British would call the wavicle aspect of any given particle element 'playing the game' or 'sportsmanship'.
b. But such 'sportsmanship' is a far-cry from genuine morality, being merely the reverse side of a particle coin.
599a. Likewise the particle aspect of any given wavicle element, which may give rise to a scandal, is a far-cry from genuine immorality.
b. Rather, it corresponds to the physical foundation upon which the greater metaphysical superstructure is built.
600a. Such a physical foundation pales to insignificance when compared with the greater physical foundation which is the basis of particle elements, and thus of genuine immorality.
b. The Church may do some evil and the State some good, but the Church is a power for wavicle good, and the State a manifestation of particle evil.
601a. The wavicle element is a transvaluated element, whose essence is positive.
b. The particle element is an untransvaluated element which lacks a positive essence, and is accordingly negative.
602a. The particle element exists in a vacuum, and the wavicle element in a plenum.
b. The vacuum is a nothingness, and the plenum a fullness.
603a. Space is the vacuum in which the photon particle (of light) exists, and air the plenum in which the photon wavicle (of spirit) exists.
b. The photon particle diverges from its own inner vacuum in the selflessness of light, whereas the photon wavicle converges upon its own inner plenum in the selfishness of spirit.
604a. Time is the vacuum in which the proton particle (of heat) exists, and blood the plenum in which the proton wavicle (of soul) exists.
b. The proton particle diverges from its own inner vacuum in the selflessness of heat, whereas the proton wavicle converges upon its own inner plenum in the selfishness of soul.
605a. Volume is the vacuum in which the neutron particle (of coldness) exists, and brain the plenum in which the neutron wavicle (of intellect) exists.
b. The neutron particle diverges from its own inner vacuum in the selflessness of coldness, whereas the neutron wavicle converges upon its own inner plenum in the selfishness of intellect.
606a. Mass is the vacuum in which the electron particle (of darkness) exists, and flesh the plenum in which the electron wavicle (of will) exists.
b. The electron particle diverges from its own inner vacuum in the selflessness of darkness, whereas the electron wavicle converges upon its own inner plenum in the selfishness of will.
607a. The selfish is established on the basis of a plenum, the selfless follows from the absence of one.
b. This absence of a plenum, which is called a vacuum, is to be found in every particle.
608a. The antithesis of selfishness is thus selflessness, and selflessness is everywhere the consequence of a vacuum.
b. The selfless do not run from self; for they have no self from which to run.
609a. In relation to the highest selfishness, which is of the spirit, the selfishness of the will is merely physically selfish; for it is concerned with the phenomenal self.
b. Hence a distinction, as outlined elsewhere, between the metaphysical self and the physical self.
610a. Both the physical self and the metaphysical self are subjective - the former phenomenally and the latter noumenally.
b. In relation to the highest and lowest kinds of selfishness, the intermediate kinds, viz. of the soul and of the intellect, are really not-selfishness; they only appear selfish in relation to themselves.
611a. In relation to the higher not-selfishness, which is of the soul, that of the intellect is merely physically not-selfish; for it is concerned with the phenomenal not-self.
b. Hence a distinction, as outlined elsewhere, between the metaphysical not-self and the physical not-self.
612a. Both the physical not-self and the metaphysical not-self are objective - the former phenomenally and the latter noumenally.
b. Where the physical self and the metaphysical self are feminine and divine respectively, the physical not-self and the metaphysical not-self are respectively masculine and diabolic.
613a. The metaphysical not-selflessness of heat is no less antithetical to the metaphysical not-selfishness of soul, than the metaphysical selflessness of light is antithetical to the metaphysical selfishness of spirit.
b. The physical not-selflessness of coldness is no less antithetical to the physical not-selfishness of intellect ... than the physical selflessness of darkness is antithetical to the physical selfishness of will.
614a. The metaphysical selflessness of photography vis-à-vis the metaphysical selfishness of meditation.
b. The metaphysical not-selflessness of cinematography - in connection, say, with the use of a movie camera - vis-à-vis the metaphysical not-selfishness of prayerful devotion.
615a. Similarly one could speak of the physical selflessness of modelling vis-à-vis the physical selfishness of writing.
b. Likewise one could speak of the physical not-selflessness of radiography - in connection, say, with the tape-recording of a studio debate - vis-à-vis the physical not-selfishness of reading.
616a. Only when they are selfish in the highest, or spiritual, sense ... will mankind apperceive God.
b. Only in the holy consciousness of the plenum of in-drawn breaths of air ... is God revealed.
617a. The Holy Spirit of Heaven is consciousness of the plenum of in-drawn breaths of air.
b. Such in-drawn breaths are never more focused than when consciousness attaches to what is termed the 'crown centre'.
618a. For, as the centre of the brain, the 'crown centre' becomes the conscious focus of the plenum of air.
b. Such a conscious focus lifts one beyond the body to the Holy Spirit of Heaven.
619a. Spirit is only 'holy' when, as consciousness, it is focused upon the plenum of air at or near the 'crown centre'.
b. It is the purity of this consciousness which is holy and the plenum of air which is heavenly.
620a. By contrast, the Clear Light of the Void is unholy in its light and unheavenly in its void.
b. For where there is a void ... there, too, is a vacuum, and where there is a vacuum ... there will be a divergence of, in this instance, light from it.
621a. The divergence of light, or anticonsciousness, from the vacuum of space is the negative antithesis to the convergence of spirit, or consciousness, upon the plenum of air.
b. Hence the Clear Light of the Void is the negative antithesis to the Holy Spirit of Heaven.
622a. He who affirms, in his meditative purism, the Holy Spirit of Heaven ... must reject the Clear Light of the Void.
b. For the Clear Light of the Void is not the God of Heaven, but the Antigod, or cosmos, of space.
623a. That which is the Antigod of space is effectively closer to the selflessness of photography than to the selfishness of meditation.
b. In fact, it takes the form of the photographic flashbulb in the 'Marxist' context of humanized artifice.
624a. For light can only exist in a vacuum, or void, and where there is light ... there will be no consciousness, or spirit, but only anticonsciousness.
b. Such anticonsciousness is the divergence of photon particles from a vacuum, and contrasts, absolutely, with the convergence of photon wavicles upon a plenum.
625a. Light is selfless because it has no plenum, but hails from a vacuum.
b. Spirit is selfish because it focuses upon a plenum.
626a. The true selfishness of spirit is not consciousness, but the plenum of air upon which it is focused.
b. Without such a plenum, there would be no consciousness at all, but only death, or anti-life.
627a. Such anti-life is what follows from a vacuum, and a vacuum is at the farthest possible remove from a plenum.
b. Should the plenum of air be lost with death, then what escapes from the ensuing vacuum would not be spirit but light, and therefore the anti-life of photon particles.
628a. Photon particles are created in a vacuum of space, whereas photon wavicles are created within a plenum of air.
b. There can no more be spirit in space ... than light in air.
629a. What exists in a vacuum is, by definition, a particle.
b. What exists in a plenum is, by definition, a wavicle.
630a. Woman exists in a vacuum until, with motherhood, she achieves a plenum upon which to focus her will.
b. Thus motherhood is a mode of worldly salvation which elevates woman from a vacuum to a plenum.
631a. It is because she exists in a vacuum prior to motherhood that woman is driven outwards in search of a mate.
b. The vacuum of an empty womb can only be escaped from via pregnancy, and the establishment, thereby, of a plenum.
632a. Thus woman has needed to escape the curse of her vacuum and achieve, via man, the blessings of a motherly plenum.
b. Only through motherhood does woman achieve a rebirth ... in the sense of becoming a transvaluated element.
633a. The worldly element is par excellence the electron.
b. Motherhood enables woman to abandon the electron particle for the electron wavicle ... of focused will.
634a. As an electron particle, woman is a kind of republican whore whose wavicle-aside is pleasure.
b. As an electron wavicle, woman becomes a Catholic ideal whose particle-aside is the child.
635a. As a vacuum, woman may have style but she will lack grace.
b. With a plenum, woman achieves the grace of a focused wavicle essence.
636a. Thus children are crucial to the dignity and morality of women, without which they would simply exist in a void.
b. And, existing in a void, they would lack a focus and be driven outwards in selfless darkness.
637a. This, in any case, is the root condition of women, from which they seek maternal deliverance.
b. Seduction is the means through which women strive to capture a man and achieve a plenum.
638a. It is true that men also seduce women, but men have no need of women ... the way women have need of men.
b. For a man's vacuum is not on the level of the planar world, but exists on the level, more usually, of the lunar purgatory and/or solar hell.
639a. Liberation for woman does not imply a denial of her basic needs but, rather, the freedom to achieve a plenum on higher levels than that of the worldly plenum alone.
b. Thus a liberated woman can and will seek intellectual, emotional, or spiritual plenums without fear of censure or discrimination.
640a. The flesh conduces towards the establishment of an electron wavicle in focused will.
b. The brain conduces towards the establishment of a neutron wavicle in focused intellect.
641a. The blood conduces towards the establishment of a proton wavicle in focused soul.
b. The breath conduces towards the establishment of a photon wavicle in focused spirit.
642a. Flesh, brain, blood, and breath (or air) are all on the wavicle side of the elemental divide.
b. Earth, water, fire, and light are all on the particle side of the elemental divide.
643a. Because light and air are antithetical, it should follow that light (and not air) is the primary element.
b. Hence we should speak of earth, water, fire, and light.
644a. The speed of light vis-à-vis the lightness of air.
b. The heat of fire vis-à-vis the brightness of blood.
645a. The coldness of water vis-à-vis the dullness of brain.
b. The slowness of earth vis-à-vis the heaviness of flesh.
646a. Consciousness of the lightness of air is spirit, and the essence of spirit is joy.
b. It is through Transcendental Meditation that the spirit is brought to the most joy.
647a. The joy of consciousness as spirit is proportionate to the apperceived lightness of air.
b. For through this apperception the spirit is released from the bondage of the flesh.
648a. To escape from the gravity of the flesh through the lightness of air is such a relief to the spirit ... that it wells-up with joy.
b. For the lightness of air is heavenly, and consciousness of this truth is what makes the spirit holy.
649a. There is no other salvation for the spirit than through its consciousness of the lightness of air.
b. For air is the plenum of universal self through which consciousness achieves a focus - the ultimate focus of spiritual self-realization.
650a. There is no consciousness without air, and therefore no life.
b. We breathe to live and live, ultimately, to breathe ... the truth ... of spiritual self-consciousness.
651a. He who puts his personal, or phenomenal, self before the universal, or noumenal, self lives not the Life Eternal, but the death-in-life.
b. Only when a man dies to his phenomenal self, and thus to phenomenal self-consciousness, can he begin to live the consciousness of noumenal self, which is eternal.
652a. This noumenal self is neither 'he' nor 'she', still less 'I', but 'it' - the 'it' of deep-breathed air.
b. And 'holy' is the spirit that is aware of this self and rejoices in its lightness.
653a. For through the universal self the spirit is delivered from the personal self and the heaviness of its flesh.
b. Thus does the Holy Spirit of Heaven come to replace the will of the world.
654a. Each time a man ejaculates ... he loses his worldly plenum of sperm and becomes more vacuous.
b. The more sex a man has, the less easy it will be for him to either establish or sustain a plenum.
655a. What man loses through sex is gained - barring contraception - by woman, who thus stands a chance of acquiring a plenum.
b. Thus whereas ejaculation conduces towards a vacuum, conception conduces towards a plenum and, far from becoming more equal, the sexes draw farther apart - the male effectively becoming more republican and the female potentially, if not actually, more Catholic.
656a. Celibacy is the male wisdom whereby the spermatic plenum is retained in the interests of other, and possibly higher, plenums.
b. Intellectual, emotional, and spiritual plenums are all possible to the celibate male, but so, too, is the plenum of will, which is called art.
657a. Art is to man what motherhood is to woman, and in art depicting motherhood, such as the 'Madonna and Child', the world achieves a paradoxical reconciliation.
b. Thus are two plenums harmonized - the plenum of art with the plenum of maternal devotion, both of which signify the triumph of their respective genders over worldly vacuums.
658a. Art is thus to the world what meditation is to the heavenly Beyond - the triumph of a moral principle.
b. For man, the rejection of art is crucial if the will of the world is not to become an end-in-itself but, rather, a means, no matter how humbly, to the Holy Spirit of Heaven.
659a. For if art is allowed to become an end-in-itself, there can be no possibility of deliverance, but only a perpetuation of art-for-art's-sake, world-without-wilful-end.
b. Thus art, no less than motherhood for woman, is something from which the artist must ultimately seek deliverance, if he is to enter the 'Kingdom of Heaven' and thereby become one with that plenum of air which is the key to ultimate salvation, and thus to the final overcoming of the world.
660a. The last word in art is - and always was - 'the Crucifixion'.
b. For 'the Crucifixion' leads, following death, the death of the body, to 'the Resurrection', and thus to the Holy Spirit of Heaven.
661a. More specifically, the Catholic 'resurrection' leads to the Holy Spirit of Heaven, whereas the Protestant 'resurrection' leads to the Holy Soul of Hell.
b. This is because humanism leads to transcendentalism, and hence to spirit, whereas nonconformism leads to fundamentalism, and hence to soul.
662a. Neither the Holy Spirit of Heaven nor the Holy Soul of Hell should be confused with a return to 'the Creator', whether this 'creator' be conceived in terms of the Unholy Spirit of Antiheaven, viz. Jehovah, or the Unholy Soul of Antihell, viz. Satan.
b. A return to 'the Creator' would not be commensurate with a truly religious or, rather, cultural, and therefore wavicle-centred, destiny, but solely with a quasi-scientific, and therefore particle-based, one.
663a. Hence we can no more believe that Christ returned, following 'the Resurrection', to 'the Creator' ... than that, say, Caesar rose, following death, to either the Holy Spirit of Heaven or the Holy Soul of Hell (the Father).
b. Whether one takes 'the Resurrection' literally or figuratively, it should be clear that, from a Catholic standpoint, 'the Saviour' ascended towards the Holy Spirit of Heaven in His triumph over the world, becoming one with the air.
664a. Such an Ascension is indeed commensurate with salvation and not, as in the nonconformist-to-fundamentalist heresy, with a progressive damnation vis-à-vis the Holy Soul of Hell.
b. Just as the Holy Spirit of Heaven is air-focused consciousness, so the Holy Soul of Hell is blood-focused emotion.
665a. The being, or conscious essence, of spirit is joy in relation to the lightness of air.
b. Hence the joyful essence of the Holy Spirit (God) vis-à-vis the truth (lightness) of Heaven.
666a. The antibeing, or anticonscious anti-essence, of light is woe in relation to the nothingness of space.
b. Hence the woeful anti-essence of the Unholy Spirit (Jehovah) vis-à-vis the illusion of Antiheaven.
667a. The feeling, or emotional essence, of soul is pride in relation to the brightness of blood.
b. Hence the proud essence of the Holy Soul (Father) vis-à-vis the emotional strength (brightness) of Hell.
668a. The antifeeling, or emotional anti-essence, of fire is humiliation in relation to the hotness of time.
b. Hence the humiliated anti-essence of the Unholy Soul (Satan) vis-à-vis the weakness of Antihell.
669a. The knowing, or intellectual essence, of mind is love in relation to the dullness of brain.
b. Hence the loving essence of the Holy Intellect (Christ) vis-à-vis the goodness (knowledge) of Purgatory.
670a. The antiknowing, or intellectual anti-essence, of water is hate in relation to the coldness of volume.
b. Hence the hateful anti-essence of the Unholy Intellect (Antichrist) vis-à-vis the badness (ignorance) of Antipurgatory.
671a. The doing, or manual essence, of will is pleasure in relation to the heaviness of the flesh.
b. Hence the pleasurable essence of the Holy Will (Blessed Virgin) vis-à-vis the beauty (gravity) of the World.
672a. The antidoing, or manual anti-essence, of earth is pain in relation to the ugliness of mass.
b. Hence the painful anti-essence of the Unholy Will (Cursed Whore) vis-à-vis the ugliness of the Antiworld.
673a. To seek sanctuary from the light of space in the spirit of air.
b. To seek sanctuary from the fire of time in the soul of blood.
674a. To seek sanctuary from the water of volume in the mind of brain.
b. To seek sanctuary from the earth of mass in the will of flesh.
675a. The spirit of air is a heavenly rebirth in relation to the light of space.
b. The soul of blood is a hellish rebirth in relation to the fire of time.
676a. The mind of brain is a purgatorial rebirth in relation to the water of volume.
b. The will of flesh is a worldly rebirth in relation to the earth of mass.
677a. To seek deliverance from the divergence of light in the vacuum of space through the convergence of spirit (consciousness) upon the plenum of air.
b. To seek deliverance from the divergence of fire in the vacuum of time through the convergence of soul (emotions) upon the plenum of blood.
678a. To seek deliverance from the divergence of water in the vacuum of volume through the convergence of mind (intellect) upon the plenum of brain.
b. To seek deliverance from the divergence of earth in the vacuum of mass through the convergence of will (actions) upon the plenum of flesh.
679a. Ultimate salvation can only come through God, and hence a convergence of spirit upon the plenum of air, but each elemental spectrum has a type of deliverance relative to itself.
b. And in such relative salvations do the world, purgatory, and Hell, or woman, man, and the Devil, compete with the Holy Spirit of Heaven for control of this planet.
680a. The phenomenal subjectivity of worldly flesh can be brought, following salvation, to the noumenal subjectivism of heavenly spirit.
b. But the phenomenal objectivity of purgatorial intellect will tend, following damnation, towards the noumenal objectivism of hellish soul.
681a. Unless purgatorial man converts from the objective to the subjective, and thus undergoes an elemental rebirth, there can be no deliverance for him, but only damnation.
b. Such is the logic of salvation, and it reflects the fact that only that which is subjective in the lower way (namely phenomenal) can become subjective in the higher way (namely noumenal).
682a. The objective, whether phenomenal or noumenal, is simply at cross-purposes with the subjective.
b. And this applies as much to the objective wavicle options vis-à-vis their subjective counterparts ... as to the objective particle options in relation to subjective particles.
683a. Hence the 'objectivity', relative to photons and electrons, of both proton and neutron wavicles.
b. Hence, too, the more radical objectivity, relative to photons and electrons, of both proton and neutron particles.
684a. Naturally, both photon and electron particles are 'objective' vis-à-vis their wavicle counterparts, just as proton and neutron wavicles are 'subjective' vis-à-vis their particle counterparts.
b. But this relativity ceases to apply when we compare or, rather, contrast photon and electron particles with the
objectivism/objectivity of proton and neutron particles respectively or, conversely, when we contrast proton and neutron wavicles with the subjectivity/subjectivism of electron and photon wavicles respectively.
685a. It is the fact of their objective essence which makes for damnation where protons and neutrons, whether as particles or wavicles, are concerned.
b. Conversely, it is the fact of their subjective essence which makes for salvation where electrons and photons, whether as particles or wavicles, are concerned.
686a. Thus we may contrast, as before, the regressive damnation of neutron particles with the progressive damnation of neutron wavicles - the former towards proton particles and the latter towards proton wavicles.
b. Similarly, to contrast the regressive salvation of electron particles with the progressive salvation of electron wavicles - the former towards photon particles and the latter towards photon wavicles.
687a. Hence to speak of a regressive damnation from the hateful Antichrist to the humiliated Antifather (Satan), as against a progressive damnation from the loving Son (Christ) to the proud Father.
b. Hence, too, a regressive salvation from the painful Antimother to the woeful Antispirit (Jehovah), as against a progressive salvation from the pleasurable Mother to the joyful Holy Spirit.
688a. Since the anti-essence of light is sadness in relation to the vacuum of nothingness from which it escapes, it follows that the more people behave like light, in relation to an inner vacuum, the sadder they become.
b. People behave like light when they are overly optical and observant, staring out of empty heads.
689a. Hence people who are more given to observation than to meditation will never escape the sadness that comes from an inevitably divergent relationship with their psychic vacuum.
b. Whatever conduces towards observation, in spectacle, is bound to sustain a psychic vacuum, and thus to perpetuate sadness in the negative spirit, or optical consciousness, of the beholder.
690a. Thus film, television, video, and photography are all media that perpetuate sadness by dint of their inducement to sustained optical appreciation.
b. Hence from the spiritual standpoint, wherein one is joyfully conscious of a plenum of air, such media are better avoided or, at worst, only indulged in moderation.
691a. For the less optically conscious we are, the more spiritually conscious we shall be, and in spiritual consciousness of the lightness of air is to be found that joy which is the reward of wisdom.
b. Thus it follows that, since the essence of spirit is joy in relation to the plenum of air upon which it is focused, the more joyful people become, the less they will be given to the light-reflecting medium of film and the sadness that is its optical corollary.
692a. The truly wise man would be beyond film and be dedicated, instead, to the inner contemplation of his heavenly perfection.
b. Yet truly wise men were very much the exception to the rule in the twentieth century, which was a century, par excellence, of light-idolizing fools.
693a. Now, as before, it is still bad manners to stare in public, since it reveals the optical vacuity of the light-bound fool, and causes bad feelings.
b. But if it is bad manners to stare in public, it is scarcely less foolish to stare in private ... at a television screen or whatever, and thereby perpetuate sadness in response to an inner vacuum.
694a. The cathode-ray tube is the vacuum from which television light radiates outwards, like antispirit from a void.
b. From its vacuum-based constitution, it is obvious that, like cameras and light projectors generally, television could only have been invented and developed by morally ignorant people, who weren't in the least aware of the foolish nature of their undertakings!
695a. Only when we are no longer enslaved to television and filmic media generally, will we be truly free ... to be at peace with that heaven which is the spirit's joy.
b. For only by rising above the light of filmic vacuity can we develop the spirit's potential for joy in relation to the lightness of air.
696a. Such joy is the being of spirit, and it increases proportionately to the degree to which we are being spiritual.
b. For the more conscious one becomes of achieving deliverance, through the lightness of air, from the heaviness of the flesh, the greater will be our joy.
697a. There is no greater joy on earth than that which follows from a consciousness of the lightness of Heaven.
b. Such lightness is truth, and truth is that which, inspiring joy, stands in a contrary relationship to beauty.
698a. For beauty, rooted in the gravity of the flesh, is heaviness, whereas truth is lightness.
b. And, being heavy, beauty inspires not joy in the spirit but pleasure in the flesh ... of worldly will.
699a. Yet if truth stands in a contrary relationship to beauty, as the Holy Spirit to the Mother, then it stands in a polar relationship to illusion.
b. For illusion is a spatial vacuum, whereas truth is an airy plenum, and illusion is a lie.
700a. The illusion of Antiheaven is ever polar to the truth of Heaven, just as the woe of the Unholy Spirit (light) is ever polar to the joy of the Holy Spirit (or consciousness of the lightness of air).
b. Light is an outer quantity, whereas lightness is an inner quality, a spiritual as opposed to a chemical reality.
701a. As foolish to speak of the inner light ... of spirit as to speak of the outer lightness ... of light.
b. Spirit is no more an inner light ... than light is an outer spirit; for spirit can only be inner and light ... outer.
702a. If, as God, the Holy Spirit is only possible on the basis of a focused consciousness upon the lightness of air, then there can be no Holy Spirit where air is not!
b. Consequently, there is no Holy Spirit in space, which is a vacuum, but only the Unholy Spirit of ... the Clear Light of the Void.
703a. God is not, nor ever has been, in space, where there is only the light of stars.
b. God is where there is a focused consciousness of the lightness of air, and nowhere else!
704a. This is the supreme (level of) being, the joy of a consciousness liberated from the gravity of the flesh through the lightness of air.
b. There is nothing beyond this supreme being, the joyful essence of the spirit, that could exist independently of Heaven, and thus of the plenum of air which is the precondition of spiritual liberation.
705a. The supreme being of spirit, which is joy, is thus at the farthest possible remove from the supreme antibeing of light, which is woe.
b. No-one, having achieved spiritual liberation from the flesh, would ever wish to become light.
706a. What he would wish for ... is to perpetuate joy in relation to his consciousness of the lightness of air for all eternity.
b. For only thus is supreme being preserved ... as the omega of all evolutionary striving, air-without-end.
707a. For the higher self ... of pure consciousness ... to be at one with the universal self ... of pure air - this is the salvation which lies beyond the world, the 'peace that surpasses all understanding'.
b. The Holy Spirit of Heaven is nothing less than this perfect condition, wherein known and knower, air and consciousness, are one.
