MATERIALISTS AND SPIRITUALISTS
The distinction between materialists and spiritualists is an age-old reality which stems, in large measure, from the fundamental dichotomy in the Galaxy between stars and planets, the relatively antithetical constitutions of which give rise to a magnetic reciprocity responsible for maintaining the orbital integrity of the Galaxy as a whole - as, indeed, the entire universe of galaxies of which this one is but an infinitesimal part. On the microcosmic plane this same distinction is to be found in the relatively antithetical constitutions of protons as negative charges and electrons as positive charges - the former active and the latter passive, though galvanized into action by the competing attractive powers of the nearest protons. On the human plane, the distinction between active materialists and passive spiritualists has traditionally manifested itself in the relatively antithetical constitution of women and men, the women constraining the men to themselves, after the fashion of stars or protons, and galvanizing them into action on their behalf, i.e. as fathers to their family, the children of which resemble tiny protons, or neutrons, in that they revolve around the mother much the way that a tiny extinct sun, such as the moon, revolves around the earth. However, I have elsewhere sought to demonstrate that as evolution progresses towards a predominantly artificial phase, the atomic integrity of the traditional family unit is gradually undermined until, with the dawn of post-dualistic civilization ... following a sudden revolutionary break with tradition which resembles the splitting of the atom, the electron equivalents are set free of proton constraint and the former proton equivalents are themselves electronized, functioning, thenceforth, in the guise of quasi-electrons. The spiritualistic world predominates over the materialistic one at that juncture in time by quite a considerable margin!
The aforementioned atomic distinction, however, between female and male on the family plane may be equated with the human microcosm, whilst a similar distinction between politicians and priests or scientists and artists will pertain to the human macrocosm, i.e. to society as opposed to the family, society itself coming to resemble a galaxy in that it is composed, on the independent level, of numerous proton-dominated atoms and, on the dependent level, of various professional interests and contributions, some of which resemble protons, others electrons, but all of which are subject to evolutionary pressures and may therefore undergo gender changes corresponding to the transformation, on the microcosmic plane, from closed atomic families to open post-atomic promiscuity.
Thus it can happen that a traditional proton profession, such as politics when patterned after the galactic-world-order, will acquire a sex change, so to speak, and become a quasi-electron opposing the proton political order in the interests of evolutionary progress. Hence socialist politicians, although nominally materialists, function in the guise of what may be called 'lesser spiritualists' in opposition, in such a transitional age as this, to the materialistic politicians per se, though on a lower level, needless to say, than genuine spiritualists, including latter-day gurus. Likewise, in science, a sex change corresponding to the progress of electron freedom over proton determinism ensures that quasi-electron scientists, who function in the guise of 'lesser spiritualists', oppose the materialism of traditional science in deference, amongst other things, to the higher spirituality of avant-garde artists, who are their spiritual peers. As quasi-electrons, revolutionary politicians and scientists oppose proton determinism and thus behave like spiritualists, which, however, they can never be in an authentic or genuine sense, seeing that their professions are largely governed by materialistic considerations. And just so for so-called liberated women who, in this transitional age, are by no means absolved from certain traditional female duties and responsibilities! Only with the advent of post-atomic civilization would the lifestyles of quasi-electron equivalents be radically influenced by electron freedoms - a situation which today applies neither to the bourgeois West nor to the proletarian East, the former being insufficiently civilized and the latter not really civilized at all, despite the considerable changes for the better which have come to pass since the eclipse of Soviet Communism by Social Democracy. Consequently, in the East artists and priests have traditionally had a comparatively raw deal.
The distinction between materialists and spiritualists does not
of course only apply to politicians and priests or to scientists and artists,
nor indeed to proton politicians and quasi-electron politicians, proton
scientists and quasi-electron scientists, the former of whom
will be more indebted to
A post-dualistic civilization, however, could only produce
free-electron artists, since religion and art take considerable precedence over
politics and science with the advent of such a high degree of civilization as
would be achieved on the post-atomic plane.
In a post-atomic barbarous society, on the other hand, art and religion
can only be bound to politics and science, since a new state has come to
replace the old one and officially outlawed the religion appertaining to it
without, however, creating a new religion to replace what went before. In such a society - and the
