1.   Truth is the lightness of air.

 

2.   Air is heavenly.

 

3.   Holy Spirit is consciousness of the lightness of air.

 

4.   Joy is the being (essence) of Holy Spirit.

 

5.   The Holy Spirit of Heaven flies, like the dove, on the wings of its joy.

 

6.   Joyful is the liberation from bodily gravity which enables the spirit, borne aloft on the lightness of air, to soar beyond its physical constraints.

 

7.   The Holy Spirit of Heaven contrasts absolutely with the Clear Light of the Void.

 

8.   The Clear Light is alpha, but the Holy Spirit omega.

 

9.   Light diverges from a vacuum (space), spirit converges upon a plenum (air).

 

10.  Unlike the essence of spirit, which is joy, the essence of light is woe; for it is driven from a vacuum, like Adam from 'the Garden'.

 

11.  The wise man is master of a plenum, whereas the fool is victim of a vacuum.

 

12.  The joyful wisdom is the highest and truest wisdom, transcending pride, love, and pleasure.

 

13.  The wise man is free, whereas the fool is bound.

 

14.  After illusion, beauty is the next worst threat to truth; for beauty is grave, whereas illusion is void.

 

15.  No man approaches Heaven through the world, but only by transcending it.

 

16.  The will experiences pleasure through the gravity of the flesh.

 

17.  The gravity of the flesh, being heavy, contrasts with the lightness of air.

 

18.  Beauty is not opposed to truth (like illusion), but, being heavy, contrasts with it.

 

19.  The worldly plenum is an end-in-itself, not a means to a higher end.

 

20.  To attain to the heavenly plenum, one must reject the world.

 

21.  He who wishes to cultivate lightness must turn his back on heaviness, abandoning beauty for truth.

 

22.  Whatever has a particle bias is negative, whatever has a wavicle bias, by contrast, is positive.

 

23.  Particles can be either subjective or objective, wavicles likewise.

 

24.  Ugliness stands to beauty as the Antiworld to the World, or Republicanism to Catholicism.

 

25.  Pain is the essence of antiwill no less than pleasure the essence of will.

 

26.  If beauty is the gravity of the flesh, then ugliness is the darkness of the earth.

 

27.  Illusion stands to truth as the Antiheaven to Heaven, or Communism to Transcendentalism.

 

28.  Sadness is the essence of antispirit no less than joy the essence of spirit.

 

29.  If truth is the lightness of air, then illusion is the nothingness of space.

 

30.  Weakness stands to strength as the Antihell to Hell, or Fascism to Fundamentalism.

 

31.  Humility is the essence of antisoul no less than pride the essence of soul.

 

32.  If strength is the brightness of the blood, then weakness is the hotness of fire.

 

33.  Evil stands to goodness as the Antipurgatory to Purgatory, or Parliamentarianism to Protestantism.

 

34.  Hatred is the essence of antimind no less than love the essence of mind (intellect).

 

35.  If goodness is the dullness of the brain, then evil is the coldness of water.

 

36.  The quickness (speed) of light contrasts with the slowness (revolutions) of the earth.

 

37.  The absence of light is darkness, but darkness is not characteristic of space (so much as of the absence of light).

 

38.  Ugliness is no-less far removed from illusion ... than beauty from truth.

 

39.  The hotness of fire contrasts with the coldness of water.

 

40.  The dullness of the brain contrasts with the brightness of the blood.

 

41.  Evil is no-less far removed from weakness than ... goodness from strength.

 

42.  Evil is cold (premeditated), whereas weakness is hot (impulsive).

 

43.  Satan is merely weak, but the Antichrist is evil.

 

44.  To kill in 'cold blood' is evil, whereas to kill in the 'heat of the moment' is simply weak.

 

45.  Hot water is less evil than cold water, but more evil than fire.

 

46.  Ice is more evil than cold water, but less evil than frost.

 

47.  Worse than the devil of fire is the devil of frost.

 

48.  Dreams can be heavenly or hellish, colourless or colourful.

 

49.  Colourless dreams, which are usually silent, correspond to alpha heaven, or the Antispirit (Jehovah).

 

50.  Colourful dreams, which are usually spoken, correspond to alpha hell, or the Antifather (Satan).

 

51.  Visions can be purgatorial or worldly, spontaneous or contrived.

 

52.  Spontaneous visions, which are impersonal, correspond to alpha purgatory, or the Antichrist.

 

53.  Contrived visions, or fantasies, correspond to the alpha world, or the Antivirgin.

 

54.  Good dreams, like good visions, are the wavicle exception to a particle rule, albeit an untransvaluated wavicle.

 

55.  From inner dreams (heavenly) to inner visions (worldly) via outer dreams (hellish) and outer visions (purgatorial).

 

56.  Heavenly dreams, being colourless, are integral to the metaphysical antiself, which has its negative being (antibeing) in photon particles.

 

57.  Hellish dreams, being colourful, are integral to the metaphysical not-antiself, which has its negative feeling (antifeeling) in proton particles.

 

58.  Purgatorial visions, being spontaneous, are integral to the physical not-antiself, which has its negative knowing (antiknowing) in neutron particles.

 

59.  Worldly visions, being contrived, are integral to the physical antiself, which has its negative doing (antidoing) in electron particles.

 

60.  To contrast the antispirit of heavenly dreams with the antiwill of worldly visions, or fantasies.

 

61.  To contrast the antisoul of hellish dreams with the antimind of purgatorial visions.

 

62.  Cinema films stand to television/video films as dreams to visions.

 

63.  Cinema films can be either 'heavenly' (idealistic) or 'hellish' (naturalistic), in black-and-white or colour.

 

64.  Black-and-white cinema films, especially when silent, correspond to alpha superheaven, or the Synthetic Antispirit.

 

65.  Colour cinema films, which are almost invariably spoken, correspond to alpha superhell, or the Synthetic Antifather.

 

66.  Television films, which are impersonal, correspond to alpha superpurgatory, or the Synthetic Antichrist.

 

67.  Video films, which can be personal, correspond to the alpha superworld, or the Synthetic Antivirgin.

 

68.  Good cinema films, like good television/video films, are the wavicle exception to a particle rule - an untransvaluated wavicle which, like its more naturalistic counterpart, stems from a particle base.

 

69.  From inner cinema films ('superheavenly') to inner television (video) films ('superworldly') via outer cinema films ('superhellish') and outer television films ('superpurgatorial').

 

70.  To contrast, diametrically, the synthetic antispirit of superheavenly cinema with the synthetic antiwill of superworldly television (video).

 

71.  To contrast, diametrically, the synthetic antisoul of superhellish cinema with the synthetic antimind of superpurgatorial television.

 

72.  Because light is outer and spirit inner, one should beware of thinking of spirit in terms of 'inner light'.

 

73.  Spirit is simply consciousness, and consciousness at one with the lightness of air is holy spirit.

 

74.  Because there cannot be holy spirit where there is no consciousness of the lightness of air, it is impossible to conceive of holy spirit existing independently of air, which is heavenly.

 

75.  There is no more a Holy Spirit than there is a Clear Light; there is only a Holy Spirit of Heaven, which exists antithetically to the Clear Light of the Void.

 

76.  Space, being a vacuum, can only be a setting for the Clear Light of the Void, never for the Holy Spirit of Heaven!

 

77.  The Holy Spirit of Heaven could only exist, beyond the world, in space centres ... such that provided and maintained a constant supply of air, the 'stuff' of Heaven.

 

78.  The more evolved the context, the greater will be the degree of artificiality serving the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

79.  Notions of definitive salvation which suggest a spiritual consummation set in space, like a great star, are morally defective.

 

80.  When transcendent salvation is conceived in terms of the Clear Light of the Void, or some such literal spatial context, we are in the morally defective realm of mysticism.

 

81.  Mysticism is nothing less than a failure to sharply differentiate between omega and alpha, spirit and light, and thus to conceive of the former completely independently of the latter.

 

82.  All traditional religions, including Christianity, are guilty of mysticism ... to the extent that they conceive of salvation in terms of a return to 'the Creator'.

 

83.  A return to 'the Creator', as that which is alpha-most, would effectively be to sacrifice the Holy Spirit of Heaven, and its joy, for the Clear Light of the Void, and its woe.

 

84.  No-one who had evolved to the Holy Spirit of Heaven would ever want to return or, rather, regress to a condition that was its very antithesis!

 

85.  It is when and because people have not evolved to the Holy Spirit of Heaven ... that they tend to think, retrogressively, in terms of a return to the Clear Light of the Void, i.e. 'the Creator'.

 

86.  The Buddhist concern with the Clear Light of the Void is proof of the woefully primitive nature of Buddhism and its mystical limitations.

 

87.  When meditation is conceived merely in terms of sustaining an inner void, it is likely that its practitioner will simply stare out from an inner vacuum.

 

88.  The inner vacuum, or nothingness of the metaphysical antiself, is what sustains the mystical meditator in his identification with the Clear Light of the Void.

 

89.  The Clear Light of the Void is a light diverging from a vacuum, the vacuum of space, and the condition of such a light, necessarily cosmic, is absolutely sad.

 

90.  Sad are the eyes of the man who stares out from the vacuum of his metaphysical antiself!

 

91.  When meditation is conceived in terms of maintaining an inner plenum, a plenum of air, there is no place for the Clear Light of the Void, but only its joyful antithesis - the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

92.  He who identifies, through his higher self, with the plenum of air ... will know the salvation that comes from being at one with the Universal Self, which is anything but a nothingness!

 

93.  To conceive of the metaphysical self as One with the Universal Self ... is to be a transcendentalist, for whom the Holy Spirit of Heaven is ultimate reality.

 

94.  He who identifies with the Universal Self, which is a plenum of air, will have no identification with that which does not and cannot identify with it.

 

95.  There can be no Buddhist identification with plants, animals, and nature in general for he who identifies with the Universal Self.

 

96.  Plants and animals may have a metaphysical antiself, or void, and we may infer from this the possibility of an implicit identification, on their part, with a universal antiself, the Clear Light of the Void, but they do not, and cannot, have a metaphysical self which focuses, meditation-wise, upon the universal self ... of a plenum of air.

 

97.  Plants and animals may, like mystical meditators, achieve 'union' with the Clear Light of the Void, but they cannot achieve union with the Holy Spirit of Heaven!

 

98.  He who, being sufficiently evolved, achieves union between the metaphysical self and the universal self ... of the Holy Spirit of Heaven automatically puts himself 'beyond the pale' of 'union' between the metaphysical antiself and the universal antiself, viz. the Clear Light of the Void.

 

99.  To achieve the Holy Spirit of Heaven is to be at the furthest possible remove from the Clear Light of the Void, a consciousness (spirit) converging upon a plenum (air), as opposed to an anticonsciousness (light) diverging from a vacuum (space).

 

100. The human nature of consciousness is awareness; the human nature of anticonsciousness, by contrast, is sight.

 

101. All men (with few exceptions) are born bound ... to the Clear Light of the Void, but are privileged, if honourable, to struggle towards the freedom ... of the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

102. He who gives himself to the Holy Spirit of Heaven is reborn into the freedom of ultimate salvation.

 

103. There are two approaches to the Holy Spirit of Heaven, and hence to ultimate salvation - a direct approach and an indirect approach, the one short and the other long.

 

104. The direct approach to ultimate salvation implies a rebirth along the spectrum of antibeing/being, so that he who was enslaved by the light achieves, through its rejection, freedom in the spirit.

 

105. The indirect approach to ultimate salvation implies a rejection of the world by those who are of the world, which is a spectrum of antidoing/doing, and achievement, through the Second Coming, of heavenly deliverance.

 

106. The direct approach to ultimate salvation is more suited to Jews and Buddhists, who only need abandon the light for the spirit, or divine alpha for divine omega.

 

107. The indirect approach to ultimate salvation is more suited to Catholics and Hindus, who will have to abandon the will in order to embrace the spirit, thus leaping from the world to Heaven.

 

108. Whether one's subjectivity is alpha noumenon or worldly phenomenon, light or will, salvation resides in abandoning the traditional religious stance and accepting, through the Messiah/Second Coming, an ultimate religious stance, which is nothing less than an affirmation of the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

109. Those whose religious traditions are objective, whether phenomenally or noumenally, cannot approach the Holy Spirit of Heaven, and therefore will not be saved.

 

110. The phenomenal objectivity of Protestantism is fated to be eclipsed by the noumenal objectivity of Islam.

 

111. The Holy Mind of Purgatory will be damned by the Holy Soul of Hell - the Father (Allah) eclipsing Christ.

 

112. The Holy Will of the World and the Holy Light of the Cosmos will be saved by the Holy Spirit of Heaven - the latter replacing both the Mother and Jehovah.

 

113. Even the objective can be reborn to the subjective, the masculine to the feminine, if they so choose.

 

114. Purgatory is the brain, and the Holy Mind of Purgatory is mind that, through thought, is one with the brain ... in a love of goodness.

 

115. Hell is the blood, and the Holy Soul of Hell is soul that, through emotion, is one with the blood ... in a pride of strength.

 

116. The world is the flesh, and the Holy Will of the World is will that, through sex, is one with the flesh ... in a pleasure of beauty.

 

117. Heaven is the air, and the Holy Spirit of Heaven is consciousness that, through meditation, is one with the air ... in a joy of truth.

 

118. Salvation is from the fleshy world to airy Heaven, as from heaviness to lightness.

 

119. Damnation is from the brainy purgatory to bloody Hell, as from dullness to brightness.

 

120. To go from the darkness of the earthy Antiworld to the light of the cosmic Antiheaven ... would be a regressive salvation.

 

121. To go from the coldness of the watery Antipurgatory to the heat of the fiery Antihell ... would be a regressive damnation.

 

122. Better to progress than to regress, to evolve than to devolve.

 

123. When 'the Bad' is mad, 'the Had' is sad.

 

124. When 'the Lad' is dad, 'the Pad' is glad.

 

125. The Antipurgatory, which is bad, becomes mad in the regressive damnation of Antihell.

 

126. The Antiworld, which is had, becomes sad in the regressive salvation of Antiheaven.

 

127. Purgatory, which is lad(dy), becomes dad in the progressive damnation of Hell.

 

128. The world, which is Pad(dy), becomes glad in the progressive salvation of Heaven.

 

129. Those who, through physical selflessness, help others to help themselves ... are extrovert and particle-based.

 

130. Those who, through physical selfishness, help themselves to help others ... are introvert and wavicle-centred.

 

131. Those who, through physical not-selflessness, hinder others to hinder themselves ... are extrovert and particle-based.

 

132. Those who, through physical not-selfishness, hinder themselves to hinder others ... are introvert and wavicle-centred.

 

133. Those who, through metaphysical selflessness, help others to help their selves ... are extrovert and particle-based.

 

134. Those who, through metaphysical selfishness, help their selves to help others ... are introvert and wavicle-centred.

 

135. Those who, through metaphysical not-selflessness, hinder others to hinder their selves ... are extrovert and particle-based.

 

136. Those who, through metaphysical not-selfishness, hinder their selves to hinder others ... are introvert and wavicle-centred.

 

137. Those who are of the Antiworld help others to physically help themselves.

 

138. Those who are of the World help themselves to physically help others.

 

139. Those who are of Antipurgatory hinder others to physically hinder themselves.

 

140. Those who are of Purgatory hinder themselves to physically hinder others.

 

141. Those who are of Antiheaven help others to metaphysically help their selves.

 

142. Those who are of Heaven help their selves to metaphysically help others.

 

143. Those who are of Antihell hinder others to metaphysically hinder their selves.

 

144. Those who are of Hell hinder their selves to metaphysically hinder others.

 

145. The Antiworld/World and Antiheaven/Heaven are contexts of help.

 

146. Antipurgatory/Purgatory and Antihell/Hell are contexts of hindrance.

 

147. Whether one's help be selfless or selfish, particle-based or wavicle-centred, it is either feminine (the Antiworld/World) or divine (Antiheaven/Heaven).

 

148. Whether one's hindrance be selfless or selfish, particle-based or wavicle-centred, it is either masculine (Antipurgatory/Purgatory) or diabolic (Antihell/Hell).

 

149. Selfless help is centrifugally subjective, and those who help others treat the other as one with themself/their self.

 

150. Selfless hindrance is centrifugally objective, and those who hinder others treat the other as distinct from themself/their self.

 

151. Selfish help is centripetally subjective, and those who help themself/their self treat themself/their self as one with the other.

 

152. Selfish hindrance is centripetally objective, and those who hinder themself/their self treat themself/their self as distinct from the other.

 

153. In the give-and-take of life, giving is objective and taking subjective.

 

154. Because giving is objective, it accords with that which hinders, whether selfless or selfish.

 

155. Because taking is subjective, it accords with that which helps, whether selfless or selfish.

 

156. Broadly, Antipurgatory/Purgatory and Antihell/Hell are contexts of giving.

 

157. Broadly, Antiheaven/Heaven and the Antiworld/World are contexts of taking.

 

158. The Saved take, and the Damned give.

 

159. God takes, but the Devil gives.

 

160. He who gives the most aggravation takes the least criticism.

 

161. He who takes the most criticism gives the least aggravation.

 

162. To 'turn the other cheek' is to take ... someone else's criticism/ aggravation.

 

163. To exact revenge on the basis of 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth' ... is to give criticism/aggravation in return.

 

164. When collectivity is phenomenal it is of the Antiworld/World, when noumenal it is of Antihell/Hell.

 

165. When individuality is phenomenal it is of Antipurgatory/Purgatory, when noumenal it is of Antiheaven/Heaven.

 

166. Noumenal collectivity is better described as collectivism.

 

167. Noumenal individuality is better described as individualism.

 

168. Phenomenal individuality has its end in collectivism, whether regressively or progressively.

 

169. Phenomenal collectivity has its end in individualism, whether regressively or progressively.

 

170. Collectivism is the diabolic damnation which supersedes individuality.

 

171. Individualism is the divine salvation which supersedes collectivity.

 

172. The purgatorial 'First' shall be the hellish Last, and the worldly 'Last' be the heavenly First.

 

173. One can no more save Antipurgatory/Purgatory ... than damn the Antiworld/World.

 

174. Antipurgatory/Purgatory can only be damned to Antihell/Hell.

 

175. The Antiworld/World can only be saved to Antiheaven/Heaven.

 

176. God individualizes the worldly collectivity, while the Devil collectivizes the purgatorial individuality.

 

177. The Antigod individualizes the antiworldly collectivity, while the Antidevil collectivizes the antipurgatorial individuality.

 

178. The Antigod is simply a negative, or particle-based, 'divinity', viz. the Clear Light of the Void (Jehovah).

 

179. God is simply a positive, or wavicle-centred, divinity, viz. the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

180. The Antidevil is simply a negative, or particle-based, 'devility', viz. the Clear Heat of Time (Satan).

 

181. The Devil is simply a positive, or wavicle-centred, devility, viz. the Holy Soul of Hell (the Father).

 

182. God is the supreme being ... of spirit, which is joy.

 

183. The Devil is the supreme feeling ... of soul, which is pride.

 

184. The Antigod is the supreme antibeing ... of light, which is woe.

 

185. The Antidevil is the supreme antifeeling ... of fire, which is humiliation.

 

186. Man is the supreme knowing ... of mind, which is love (Christ).

 

187. Woman is the supreme doing ... of will, which is pleasure (the Mother).

 

188. Antiman is the supreme antiknowing ... of water, which is hate (Antichrist).

 

189. Antiwoman is the supreme antidoing ... of earth, which is pain (Antimother).

 

190. God lives in Heaven, as consciousness of the lightness of air, but the Antigod lives in Antiheaven, as anticonsciousness of the nothingness of space.

 

191. The Devil lives in Hell, as feeling of the brightness of blood, but the Antidevil lives in Antihell, as antifeeling of the hotness of fire.

 

192. Man lives in Purgatory, as knowledge of the dullness of brain, but the Antiman lives in Antipurgatory, as antiknowledge of the coldness of water.

 

193. Woman lives in the world, as sensation of the heaviness of flesh, but the Antiwoman lives in the Antiworld, as antisensation of the coarseness of earth.

 

194. To contrast joy in the lightness of air (Heaven) with woe at the nothingness of space (Antiheaven).

 

195. To contrast pride in the brightness of blood (Hell) with humiliation at the hotness of fire (Antihell).

 

196. To contrast love in the dullness of brain (Purgatory) with hate at the coldness of water (Antipurgatory).

 

197. To contrast pleasure in the heaviness of flesh (the world) with pain at the coarseness of earth (the Antiworld).

 

198. To contrast the speed of light with the slowness of darkness.

 

199. Light speeds things up, and darkness slows them down.

 

200. Lightness may be the essence of air, but nothingness is not the essence of space.

 

201. Space has no essence, because nothingness is a vacuum.

 

202. Woe is the antibeing (essence) of light, but speed is its appearance.

 

203. Woe at the nothingness of space leads light to speed away from it, as with a horror vacui.

 

204. Joy is the being (essence) of spirit, but tranquillity is its appearance.

 

205. Joy in the lightness of air leads spirit to float upon it, as upon an airy cushion.

 

206. Space has no essence, and air no appearance.

 

207. Nothingness is, in some sense, the 'appearance' of space.

 

208. Heaven is that which, having only essence, is the most desirable end.

 

209. Space is that which, having only appearance, is the least desirable beginning.

 

210. Nothingness is so undesirable ... that it could only be a beginning, not an end.

 

211. Heaven is so desirable ... that it could only be an end, not a beginning.

 

212. Ordinarily we 'see' space in terms of the distance between objects.

 

213. The space between objects can be measured in terms of metric units, but it is only the measurements which have any reality, not the space itself!

 

214. Space may be apparent and Heaven essential, but light and spirit are both apparent and essential.

 

215. The essence of light, which is woe, is commensurate with the appearance of light, which is speed.

 

216. The essence of spirit, which is joy, is commensurate with the appearance of spirit, which is tranquillity.

 

217. The more nothingness in space, the greater the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) and the corresponding degree of woe.

 

218. The more lightness in air, the greater the tranquillity of spirit and the corresponding degree of joy.

 

219. Air slows light down and makes it transparent to eyes accustomed to seeing it through a filter.

 

220. Breathe deeply to achieve a calm spirit, eclipsing the light.

 

221. Move fast and the spirit is agitated and eclipsed by the light.

 

222. To become truly enlightened one must get rid of the light, becoming tranquil through the lightness of air.

 

223. Enlightenment has nothing to do with the light and everything to do with lightness.

 

224. Insight leads to enlightenment, as theory to practice.

 

225. Sight stems from moral blindness, just as surely as insight leads to enlightenment.

 

226. The fool gazes out at the world from his vacuum of moral ignorance, while the sage trains his attention upon the plenum of air which is his enlightenment.

 

227. Speed is a curse which follows from a vacuum, and vacuous is the age and/or society that puts a premium on speed!

 

228. The wise are blessed with that tranquillity which pervades the spirit when it is joyfully at one with the lightness of air.

 

229. To be borne aloft on a current of gravity-defying truth, leaving the cares of mundane life far behind - such is the salvation that awaits those who elect to become the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

230. Blessed are the meditators, for theirs is the 'Kingdom of Heaven'.

 

231. Blessed are those whose consciousness is one with the air, for they have become the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

232. Blessed are those who value truth above beauty, for they will achieve salvation from the world.

 

233. Blessed are the true philosophers, whose pursuit of wisdom leads to truth, and thus to a joyful calm.

 

234. Blessed are those whose lightness of being bears testimony to the truth.

 

235. Blessed are those who breathe deeply of an unpolluted air.

 

236. Blessed are the free spirits whose freedom is spiritual.

 

237. When consciousness is intellectual it is merely masculine.  But when consciousness is absorbed into the greater self which, being everywhere, is universal, it is divine - the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

238. When consciousness is vacuous it is neither intellectual nor spiritual, purgatorial nor heavenly, but cosmic - approximating to the Clear Light of the Void.

 

239. One can never become the Clear Light of the Void to the extent that one can become the Holy Spirit of Heaven, for even the most vacuous mind is surrounded by air.

 

240. The world is a place that, being enveloped by air, remains biased towards the Holy Spirit of Heaven, and thus towards the possibility of spiritual salvation.

 

241. Even eyes require air, and can only abide the light that has been rendered transparent through the air's translucency.

 

242. So long as there is air to breathe, man will remain the beneficiary of a 'moral-world-order', scorning the void.

 

243. All men are equal in their dependence on air, but differ in their attitudes toward it.

 

244. The fool breathes air unreflectingly, taking it for granted, whereas the wise man knows air for what it is, and accordingly treasures it above all else!

 

245. Even the worst men breathe air while they are alive, and are wrapped-up in its heavenly embrace.

 

246. Enlightenment is nothing more and nothing less than awareness of the heavenly significance of air.

 

247. That man who is truly enlightened ... has been lifted above the gravity of his phenomenal self by the Universal Self, whose essence is lightness.

 

248. No man can live without the universal self ... of the air, but few men consistently live with it.

 

249. Because Heaven is a plenum of air, there is a loose sense in which Hell is a vacuum of space.

 

250. A vacuum of space is less Hell, however, than Antiheaven, while the Cosmos is less the Devil than the Antigod.

 

251. That which is holy is inner, while that which is unholy is outer - the Antigod of Antiheaven, or Clear Light of the Void (Jehovah), being a case in point.

 

252. The Antidevil of Antihell, or Clear Heat of Time (Satan), is outer in relation to the Holy Soul of Hell (the Father).

 

253. The Antiman of Antipurgatory, or Clear Coldness of Volume (Antichrist), is outer in relation to the Holy Mind of Purgatory (Christ).

 

254. The Antiwoman of the Antiworld, or Clear Darkness of Mass (Antimother), is outer in relation to the Holy Will of the World (the Mother).

 

255. The stellar central star of the Galaxy corresponds to the Clear Light of the Void (space).

 

256. The solar sun corresponds to the Clear Heat of Time (fire).

 

257. The lunar moon corresponds to the Clear Coldness of Volume (water).

 

258. The planar (planetary) earth corresponds to the Clear Darkness of Mass (soil).

 

259. The Unholy Spirit of Antiheaven contrasts absolutely with the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

260. The Unholy Soul of Antihell contrasts absolutely with the Holy Soul of Hell.

 

261. The Unholy Mind of Antipurgatory contrasts absolutely with the Holy Mind of Purgatory.

 

262. The Unholy Will of the Antiworld contrasts absolutely with the Holy Will of the World.

 

263. Light is always 'unholy spirit' in relation to the consciousness of air.

 

264. Heat is always 'unholy soul' in relation to the feeling of the blood.

 

265. Coldness is always 'unholy mind' in relation to the knowledge of the brain.

 

266. Darkness is always 'unholy will' in relation to the action of the flesh.

 

267. To dance in the light of space or work in the darkness of mass.

 

268. To fight in the heat of time or play in the coldness of volume.

 

269. To float on the lightness of air or grunt in the heaviness of the flesh.

 

270. To fume on the brightness of the blood or dwell in the dullness of the brain.

 

271. As bad to have light in the air, or fire in the blood, or earth on the flesh, as to have water on the brain.

 

272. Kickboxing stands to boxing as association football to Gaelic football - the alpha-most side of a negative (particle-based) duality.

 

273. Armwrestling stands to wrestling as rugby union to rugby league - the omega-most side of a positive (wavicle-centred) duality.

 

274. From a kickboxing diabolic alpha to an armwrestling diabolic omega via boxing and wrestling.

 

275. From centrifugal weakness to centripetal strength via centripetal weakness and centrifugal strength.

 

276. From an association-football worldly alpha to a rugby-union worldly omega via Gaelic football and rugby league.

 

277. From centrifugal ugliness to centripetal beauty via centripetal ugliness and centrifugal beauty.

 

278. It could be said of football that its correspondence to the Antiworld is hard-line republican in the guise of association football, and soft-line republican in the guise of Gaelic football.

 

279. It could be said of rugby that its correspondence to the World is hard-line Catholic in the guise of rugby union, and soft-line Catholic in the guise of rugby league.

 

280. It could be said of boxing that its correspondence to Antihell is hard-line fascist in the guise of kickboxing, and soft-line fascist in the guise of punch boxing.

 

281. It could be said of wrestling that its correspondence to Hell is hard-line fundamentalist in the guise of armwrestling, and soft-line fundamentalist in the guise of body wrestling.

 

282. Rounders stands to baseball as court tennis to table tennis - the alpha-most side of a negative (particle-based) duality.

 

283. Netball stands to basketball as squash to badminton - the omega-most side of a positive (wavicle-centred) duality.

290. It could be said of tennis that its correspondence to Antipurgatory is hard-line parliamentary in the guise of court tennis, and soft-line parliamentary in the guise of table tennis.

 

291. It could be said of badminton that its correspondence to Purgatory is hard-line Protestant in the guise of squash, and soft-line Protestant in the guise of badminton.

 

292. Sin is to cultural societies what crime is to civilized ones - the reverse side of a coin whose obverse is positive.

 

293. The greatest threat to civilization is the crime of barbarism.

 

294. The greatest threat to culture is the sin of nature.

 

295. Ultimately, culture is as superior to civilization as God to man or spirit to intellect.

 

296. Traditionally, civilization oppresses nature whereas culture represses it.

 

297. Broadly, civilization is nonconformist and barbarism fundamentalist, whereas culture is transcendentalist and nature humanist.

 

298. Protestant societies have more crime than sin to contend with, whereas Catholic societies have to deal with more sin than crime.

 

299. Naturalism is the barbarous enemy of materialism.

 

300. Realism is the natural enemy of idealism.

 

301. Moral people always strive to fill-up a vacuum with a plenum, whether relatively or absolutely, depending on the kind of morality to which they relate.

 

302. The Devil can be no-less moral than God, though not in the same way or with effect to the same ends.

 

303. Man can be no-less moral than woman, though not in the same way or with effect to the same ends.

 

304. If morality is the omega-most pole of any given spectrum, then its alpha-most pole must be immoral.

 

305. Positions on any given spectrum that are neither alpha nor omega but somewhere in-between are amoral, whether negatively in the alpha-stemming case or positively in the omega-oriented one.

 

306. Association football is immoral and rugby union moral, whereas Gaelic football is negatively amoral and rugby league positively amoral.

 

307. Tennis is immoral and squash moral, whereas table tennis is negatively amoral and badminton positively amoral.

 

308. Kickboxing is immoral and armwrestling moral, whereas boxing is negatively amoral and wrestling positively amoral.

 

309. Rounders is immoral and netball moral, whereas baseball is negatively amoral and basketball positively amoral.

 

310. Militarism, fascism, and communism are the barbarous alternatives to and/or preconditions of royalism, liberalism, and socialism.

 

311. Militarism barbarously protects the interests of the upper class, fascism barbarously protects the interests of the middle class, and communism barbarously protects the interests of the lower class.

 

312. When upper-class, middle-class, and lower-class interests are being advanced in a civilized framework, we get royalism, liberalism, and socialism.

 

313. Fundamentalism barbarously protects the interests of the classless, whereas transcendentalism advances their interests within a civilized framework.

 

314. Fundamentalism stands to transcendentalism as militarism to royalism, fascism to liberalism, and communism to socialism.

 

315. Fundamentalism is rooted in the tribe and the idols of the tribe.

 

316. Transcendentalism is centred in God and the Heaven of God.

 

317. If women were to become Catholic priests, they would not be 'fathers' but 'mothers'.

 

318. Whereas 'fathers' are rooted in the Father, 'mothers' would be centred in the Mother, viz. the Virgin Mary.

 

319. The concept of female priest as 'mother' is relatively humanist, and hence bureaucratic, i.e. of the world.

 

320. The concept of male priest as 'father' is fundamentalist, and hence autocratic, i.e. of Hell.

 

321. Roman Catholicism is traditionally rooted in the autocratic and patriarchal power-base of the Father.

 

322. A Catholicism with 'mothers' would presumably reflect the triumph of the people over autocratic power and their deliverance from patriarchal control.

 

323. A Catholicism with 'mothers' would be humanistic and politically suited to a people who had achieved republican freedom.

 

324. Were Catholicism to become purely humanistic, female priests would be the bureaucratic rule and male ones the autocratic exception!

 

325. The Second Coming, knowing no father, would rather do divine business with 'mothers' than with 'fathers'.

 

326. It is unlikely that the institution of the confessional would long survive the ordination of female priests!

 

327. Confession is rooted in the Father, and entails subservience to autocratic control.

 

328. He who confesses is like a penitent son before a stern father, whose only hope of forgiveness lies with the intercession of his mother.

 

329. If the 'mother' were priest, then forgiveness would be virtually automatic and confession a mere formality.

 

330. It could be argued that confession of sins would be less credible vis--vis a female priest than vis--vis a male one, and that, this being the case, both sin and confession would quickly die a natural (heathen) death.

 

331. Ultimately, it is not commensurate with the dignity of free men to confess to sins before an autocratic father-figure.

 

332. When there are neither 'fathers' nor 'mothers', nor even 'sons' and 'daughters', but only brethren of the free spirit - then, and only then, will the 'Kingdom of Heaven' be at-hand!

 

333. The celebration of the Mass divides Christ's body (wafer) and blood (wine) between the Mother (laity) and the Father (priest), with worldly and hellish overtones respectively.

 

334. Blood is the diabolic omega and flesh the mundane omega - the one of Hell and the other of the world.

 

335. Those who are of the Father gorge themselves on blood (or its symbolic surrogate), whereas those who are of the Mother feast on the flesh (or its symbolic surrogate).

 

336. In the Mass, Christ's intellect is sundered by and transcended in the will and soul of His body and blood.

 

337. By receiving the wafer-symbolism of Christ's body, the faithful affirm their connection with and ongoing loyalty to the world.

 

338. The act of receiving the wafer both confirms and preserves the phenomenal subjectivity of the world.

 

339. Were there no phenomenal subjectivity, there could be no noumenal subjectivity beyond the world.

 

340. As a vehicle for the preservation of phenomenal subjectivity ... pending the Second Coming, the Mass more than justifies its retention.

 

341. With the Second Coming, the Mass, together with confession, will cease to be viable and therefore acceptable.

 

342. Folly is an attribute of the Antidevil/Devil and wisdom an attribute of the Antigod/God.

 

343. When wisdom is negative, or spatial, it is an attribute of the Antigod.

 

344. When wisdom is positive, or spiritual, it is an attribute of God.

 

345. When folly is negative, or sequential, it is an attribute of the Antidevil.

 

346. When folly is positive, or emotional, it is an attribute of the Devil.

 

347. Spatial antiwisdom vis--vis spiritual wisdom.

 

348. Sequential antifolly vis--vis emotional folly.

 

349. Cleverness is an attribute of the antiman/man and stupidity an attribute of the antiwoman/woman.

 

350. When cleverness is negative, or volumetric, it is an attribute of the antiman.

 

351. When cleverness is positive, or intellectual, it is an attribute of man.

 

352. When stupidity is negative, or massed, it is an attribute of the antiwoman.

 

353. When stupidity is positive, or wilful, it is an attribute of woman.

 

354. Volumetric anticleverness vis--vis intellectual cleverness.

 

355. Massed antistupidity vis--vis wilful stupidity.

 

356. Both antiwisdom/wisdom and antifolly/folly are noumenal.

 

357. Both anticleverness/cleverness and antistupidity/stupidity are phenomenal.

 

358. The antiwisdom of Antiheaven contrasts with the wisdom of Heaven.

 

359. The antifolly of Antihell contrasts with the folly of Hell.

 

360. The anticleverness of Antipurgatory contrasts with the cleverness of Purgatory.

 

361. The antistupidity of the Antiworld contrasts with the stupidity of the World.

 

362. In a regressive salvation, the antistupid of the Antiworld are brought to the antiwisdom of Antiheaven.

 

363. In a progressive salvation, the stupid of the World are brought to the wisdom of Heaven.

 

364. In a regressive damnation, the anticlever of Antipurgatory are brought to the antifolly of Antihell.

 

365. In a progressive damnation, the clever of Purgatory are brought to the folly of Hell.

 

366. The anticlever/clever 'First' shall be the antifoolish/foolish Last.

 

367. The antistupid/stupid 'Last' shall be the antiwise/wise First.

 

368. From a nonconformist cleverness in the Holy Mind (intellect) of Purgatory ... to a fundamentalist folly in the Holy Soul (blood) of Hell.

 

369. From a humanist stupidity in the Holy Will (flesh) of the World ... to a transcendentalist wisdom in the Holy Spirit (consciousness) of Heaven.

 

370. From a parliamentary anticleverness in the Unholy Mind (water) of Antipurgatory ... to a fascist antifolly in the Unholy Soul (fire) of Antihell.

 

371. From a republican antistupidity in the Unholy Will (earth) of the Antiworld ... to a communist antiwisdom in the Unholy Spirit (light) of Antiheaven.

 

372. The Unholy diverge externally from a vacuum, whereas the Holy converge internally upon a plenum.

 

373. Better, positively, the joyful wisdom than the pleasurable stupidity!

 

374. The wisdom of joy in relation to truth.

 

375. The stupidity of pleasure in relation to beauty.

 

376. The Saved go from good to better, as from the World to Heaven.

 

377. The Damned go from bad to worse, as from Purgatory to Hell.

 

378. Saved from the phenomenal subjectivity of pleasure to the noumenal subjectivity of joy.

387. The antifolly of humility, if not humiliation, in relation to weakness.

 

388. The anticleverness of hate in relation to evil.

 

389. The Antisaved go from anti-good to anti-better, as from the Antiworld to Antiheaven.

 

390. The Antidamned go from anti-bad to anti-worse, as from Antipurgatory to Antihell.

 

391. Saved, negatively, from the phenomenal subjectivity of pain to the noumenal subjectivity of woe.

 

392. Damned, negatively, from the phenomenal objectivity of hate to the noumenal objectivity of humiliation.

 

393. The feminine stupid become divine wise.

 

394. The masculine clever become diabolic fools.

 

395. Those who are inherently foolish, and hence noumenally objective, are devils rather than the Damned.

 

396. Those who are inherently wise, and hence noumenally subjective, are gods rather than the Saved.

 

397. Devils torment the Damned, fundamentalizing nonconformists.

 

398. Gods redeem the Saved, transcendentalizing humanists.

 

399. Gods and devils are sometimes at work in the same society, but more often they pertain to different kinds of society.

 

400. Space can be either alpha or omega - spatial or spaced.

 

401. When space is alpha, we get light from a vacuum of void, e.g. nothingness.

 

402. When space is omega, we get consciousness from a plenum of air, e.g. oxygen.

 

403. Time can be either alpha or omega - sequential or repetitive.

 

404. When time is alpha, we get heat from a sequence of flame, e.g. fire.

 

405. When time is omega, we get feelings from a repetition of blood, e.g. heartbeat.

 

406. Volume can be either alpha or omega - volumetric or voluminous.

 

407. When volume is alpha, we get coldness from a volume of water, e.g. rain.

 

408. When volume is omega, we get knowledge from a volume of intellect, e.g. book.

 

409. Mass can be either alpha or omega - massed or massive.

 

410. When mass is alpha, we get darkness from a mass of earth, e.g. crowd.

 

411. When mass is omega, we get sensation from a mass of flesh, e.g. sex.

 

412. The alpha of space, time, volume, and mass can be either negative or positive, but, given its particle appearance, it will be primarily negative and only secondarily positive.

 

413. The omega of space, time, volume, and mass can be either negative or positive, but, given its wavicle essence, it will be primarily positive and only secondarily negative.

 

414. With the alpha positions of any given spectrum, the particle is primary and the wavicle secondary.

 

415. With the omega positions of any given spectrum, the wavicle is primary and the particle secondary.

 

416. The secondary quality takes on the moral characteristic of the primary quantity in the case of the alpha positions.

 

417. The secondary quantity takes on the moral characteristic of the primary quality in the case of the omega positions.

 

418. Joy becomes external in relation to woe, in the context of the spatial alpha.

 

419. Pride becomes external in relation to humility, in the context of the sequential alpha.

 

420. Love becomes external in relation to hate, in the context of the volumetric alpha.

 

421. Pleasure becomes external in relation to pain, in the context of the massed alpha.

 

422. Woe becomes internal in relation to joy, in the context of the spaced omega.

 

423. Humility becomes internal in relation to pride, in the context of the repetitive omega.

 

424. Hate becomes internal in relation to love, in the context of the voluminous omega.

 

425. Pain becomes internal in relation to pleasure, in the context of the massive omega.

 

426. If Marxism, or Communism, is extreme left, then Bolshevism, or Marxism-Leninism, is quasi-extreme right.

 

427. Bolshevism is 'Red Fascism' (Wilhelm Reich), or communistic militarism.

 

428. The Extreme Right are always militarist and ruling class, rooted in the sun.

 

429. The Right are always capitalist and business class, rooted in the moon.

 

430. The Left are always socialist and working class, rooted in the earth.

 

431. The Extreme Left are always communist and leading class, rooted in the cosmos.

 

432. The clerical Extreme Left are always transcendentalist and classless, centred in the spirit.

 

433. The clerical Extreme Right are always fundamentalist and upper class, centred in the blood.

 

434. The clerical Right are always nonconformist and middle class, centred in the intellect.

 

435. The clerical Left are always humanist and lower class, centred in the will.

 

436. Painting is the art form of space.

 

437. Music is the art form of time.

 

438. Literature is the art form of volume.

 

439. Sculpture is the art form of mass.

 

440. Because the Extreme Right are militaristic, they are inherently diabolical, glorying in war.

 

441. It is easy to take the red flag and unbounded yellow star of Communism for the Devil or, rather, Antidevil, but this would be an ideological error!

 

442. Bolshevism, and hence Stalinism, may have been militaristic, but it was still pro-worldly, and thus pro-left.

 

443. Bolshevism leads to Socialism, and Socialism should in turn lead, via people's Catholicism, to the 'clerical communism' of Social Transcendentalism.

 

444. People's Catholicism will be rather more partial to the Mother than to the Father, and thus to mothers as opposed to fathers.

 

445. The Church does the Devil's work when it protects the interests of the Father at the expense of those of the Mother.

 

446. The People have a moral duty to oppose 'clerical fascism' (fundamentalism) and its support for the despotism of the Father.

 

447. Only that man who is atheistic vis--vis the Father ... will have the Mother's interests truly at heart!

 

448. When the 'dogs of war' are unleashed upon the People, 'clerical fascists' (fundamentalists) tend to turn what is commonly called a 'blind eye'.

 

449. 'Clerical fascists' are quick to justify their oppression of the People in terms of a 'holy war' against atheist unbelievers.

 

445. He who believes truly in the Son believes not in the Father but in the Mother, whose hope of the world ... is the Second Coming.

 

451. The Second Coming will take subjectivity from the phenomenal plane of the world to the noumenal plane of Heaven, thus vindicating the Mother's hope.

 

452. Where People's Catholicism is triumphant over despotic Catholicism, the People are free to await the Second Coming/Social Transcendentalism.

 

453. With Social Transcendentalism, the People will have the opportunity to elect, democratically, for religious sovereignty, and thus the right to spiritual self-realization.

 

454. Social Transcendentalism will have no place whatsoever for the Father, alias the Holy Soul of Hell, but only place for the Holy Spirit of Heaven, the one true God.

 

455. The Modern Age began in the particle Extreme-Left of 'secular communism' and will end, if justice is done, in the wavicle Extreme-Left of 'clerical communism', or Social Transcendentalism.

 

456. One should distinguish Nazism from Fascism on the basis of a pseudo-extreme-right/extreme-right dichotomy - the former issuing from the moon ... of liberal democracy (Weimar Republic) ... and the latter inherently solar, and hence autocratic.

 

457. Whatever its ideological shortcomings, Nazism began on a democratic basis and ended-up 'selling out' to the military.

 

458. Fascism was and remains inherently militaristic, attaining power via a coup rather than through the ballot box.

 

459. It is because of its intrinsically militarist nature that Fascism was even more diabolical than Nazism.

 

460. Hitler may have been more evil than Mussolini, but he was less weak, and therefore diabolical.

 

461. The nazi/fascist alliance was effectively a pact between the Antichrist and Satan - the former cold and calculating, the latter hot and impulsive; the one evil, the other weak.

 

462. As a military ruler, Franco was the quintessential fascist - a man of the Extreme Right who crushed the People in the interests, effectively, of the Father.

 

463. Franco's monumental legacy to Spain is the most powerful subversion of the cross ever erected!

 

464. Franco crucified the Spanish people long before he erected a monument to his despotic triumph.

 

465. The Spanish people await the Second Coming in the shadow of Franco's awesome cross, the shame of Spain.

 

466. There is a sense in which writing is thinking, but it is no closer to being literally the case ... than would be the notion that beauty was truth.

 

467. The common people abhor thought and hold it against the thinker.

 

468. The common people adore speech and speak as often as they can.

 

469. The common people have more respect for the speaker, and hence the dramatist, than for the thinker, and hence the philosopher.

 

470. Drama is an inherently fundamentalist mode of literature; philosophy, by contrast, is transcendentalist.

 

471. 'Dramatic philosophy' (Nietzsche) is no-less paradoxical than 'philosophical drama' (Shaw), but still morally better.

 

472. The dramatist is the least intelligent kind of writer, the philosopher the most intelligent.

 

473. Poets are more intelligent than novelists, but less intelligent than philosophers.

 

474. Poetry is an inherently nonconformist mode of literature; fiction, by contrast, is humanist.

 

475. 'Literary poetry' (Eliot) is no-less paradoxical than 'poetic literature' (Joyce), but still morally worse.

 

476. The middle class prefer to read than to write, and have more respect for the reader, and hence the poet, than for the writer, and hence the novelist.

 

477. Poetry is the literary art form of phenomenal objectivity, and hence reading, whereas fiction is the literary art form of phenomenal subjectivity, and hence writing.

 

478. Drama is the literary art form of noumenal objectivity, and hence speaking, whereas philosophy is the literary art form of noumenal subjectivity, and hence thinking.

 

479. The more diabolic the society, the greater the amount of drama it will consume and/or produce.

 

480. The more divine the society, the greater the amount of philosophy it will consume and/or produce.

 

481. Societies that are neither especially diabolic nor divine will concentrate on either poetry or fiction primarily - the former masculine and the latter feminine.

 

482. Fundamentalist societies thrive on drama, transcendentalist ones on philosophy.

 

483. Nonconformist societies thrive on poetry, humanist ones on fiction.

 

484. The world must be saved from fiction by philosophy.

 

485. Purgatory can only be damned from poetry by drama.

 

486. There is about 'poetic drama' the suggestion of something nazi, and hence pseudo-extreme right.

 

487. Those whose politics are extreme left cannot have any connection with the Extreme Right, and will therefore have no taste for drama.

 

488. God is a philosopher (thinker), whereas the Devil, by contrast, is a dramatist (speaker).

 

489. Man is a poet (reader), whereas woman, by contrast, is a novelist (writer).

 

490. Thinking is an intellectual affirmation of the spirit, whereas reading is a spiritual affirmation of the intellect.

 

491. Speaking is a soulful affirmation of the intellect, whereas writing is an intellectual affirmation of the will.

 

492. Space can be either idealist (spatial) or transcendentalist (spaced).

 

493. Time can be either naturalist (sequential) or fundamentalist (repetitive).

 

494. Volume can be either materialist (volumetric) or nonconformist (voluminous).

 

495. Mass can be either realist (massed) or humanist (massive).

 

496. Idealist space, being spatial, is void, whereas transcendentalist space, being spaced, is spiritual.

 

497. Naturalist time, being sequential, is fiery, whereas fundamentalist time, being repetitive, is soulful.

 

498. Materialist volume, being volumetric, is watery, whereas nonconformist volume, being voluminous, is intellectual.

 

499. Realist mass, being massed, is earthy, whereas humanist mass, being massive, is wilful.

 

500. Idealism is stellar (cosmic), whereas transcendentalism is heavenly.

 

501. Naturalism is solar, whereas fundamentalism is hellish.

 

502. Materialism is lunar, whereas nonconformism is purgatorial.

 

503. Realism is planar (planetary and/or terrestrial), whereas humanism is worldly (mundane).

 

504. The stellar idealism of spatial space, as against the heavenly transcendentalism of spaced space.

 

505. The solar naturalism of sequential time, as against the hellish fundamentalism of repetitive time.

 

506. The lunar materialism of volumetric volume, as against the purgatorial nonconformism of voluminous volume.

 

507. The planar realism of massed mass, as against the worldly humanism of massive mass.

 

508. Spatial space is the vacuous gap between two or more objects, whereas spaced space is the plenumous gap between two or more breaths.

 

509. Sequential time is the pulse-rate between two or more moments, whereas repetitive time is the pulse-rate between two or more beats.

 

510. Volumetric volume is the quantity (amount) of liquid contained in any given vessel, whereas voluminous volume is the quantity (total) of words/pages contained in any given book.

 

511. Massed mass is the size (number) of any given collective, whereas massive mass is the size (scale) of any given individual.

 

512. The limpidity of space contrasts with the cupidity of time.

 

513. The humidity of volume contrasts with the stolidity of mass.

 

514. The translucency/airiness of space contrasts with the fieriness/bloodiness of time.

 

515. The liquidity/braininess of volume contrasts with the solidity/fleshiness of mass.

 

516. Between the Clear Light of the Void and the Holy Spirit of Heaven come what may be called the Unholy Spirit of the Void and the Unclear Light of Heaven.

 

517. The Unholy Spirit of the Void is outer spirit, whereas the Unclear Light of Heaven is inner light.

 

518. The Unholy Spirit of the Void is morally inferior to the Holy Spirit of Heaven, but morally superior to the Clear Light of the Void.

 

519. The Unclear Light of Heaven is morally superior to the Clear Light of the Void, but morally inferior to the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

520. The Unholy Spirit of the Void, commonly perceived as a woeful apparition or ghost, is secondary to the Clear Light of the Void.

 

521. The Unclear Light of Heaven, commonly perceived as a truthful vision or 'trip', is secondary to the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

522. Where the Unclear Spirit of the Void is a photon 'wavicle', the Unclear Light of Heaven is a photon 'particle'.

 

523. Photon 'wavicles' are a sort of omega-in-the-alpha, where alpha is equivalent to the photon particles of the Clear Light of the Void.

 

524. Photon 'particles' are a sort of alpha-in-the-omega, where omega is equivalent to the photon wavicles of the Holy Spirit of Heaven.

 

525. Between the Clear Heat of Time and the Holy Soul of Hell come what may be called the Unholy Soul of Time and the Unclear Heat of Hell.
