Welcome to the APHORISTIC PHILOSOPHY of
JESUS – A SUMMING UP!

As suggested by the title, this is my final volume of aphoristic philosophy and one that brings my philosophizing-cum-theosophizing, if not philologizing-cum-theologizing, to a cumulative head, as I restate some of the conclusive Social Theocratic theories of previous works, including Celiestial City and Anti-Vanity Fair (2005), and modify, expand, and refine upon various of the more characteristic theories of the recent past. Also, not altogether usual for me, I have allowed these theories to be invaded by a degree of autobiography which I needed to get out of my system and which, in any case, provided a springboard, as it were, to an enhanced approach to my more regular approach to writing and thinking. As also noted in this project, much of the writing is more weblog-like than has usually been the case, and that doubtless owes something to the fact that I now blog on the Internet and regard blogging as the electronic successor to my e-books or, rather in this instance, e-scrolls, since I prefer HTML files to most other file types if only because there is a scroll-like continuity involved which takes text to an altogether different place on the axial compass, so to speak, from where it would otherwise be, and one, I am sure, which does more justice to universality in relation to global civilization than must any electronic extrapolation from books which, to my mind, are simply more Western in character. However that may be, blogging is gradually taking over from book- and/or scroll-writing in my literary predilections, and therefore it is fitting if my conclusive text happens to be more blog-like than book-like. Also, now that I have so many web sites, I find it laborious, to the point of exasperating, to add a new short text to each directory, especially since this requires an updating if not replacement of any lists and synopses which may already be there in order to incorporate the new work. Frankly, even my synopses are now something of a major work in their own right! But, that said, I am first and foremost a writer of literary texts and have progressed, over the years, from philology to theology and from philosophy to theosophy, sacrificing knowledge to truth and pleasure to joy. My work is its own vindication, and anyone with enough intelligence who reads it will sooner or later come to the conclusion that it both adds up to and provides a basis or blueprint for what has been colloquially described as ‘Kingdom Come’, a radically progressive alternative to either regressive or sensually-based structures of society that should lead, amongst other things, to the salvation of the world, as defined in this and other texts, and to eternal peace (gracefully for males) in the transcendental Beyond which it has been the privilege of this self-styled theologist and theosophist to delineate for the benefit of those who come after him and may well inherit, if all goes according to plan, the ‘Kingdom of God’ in question, such a ‘kingdom’ being anything but a kingdom in the usual autocratic sense but, in actuality, the theocratic antithesis to anything monarchic. – John O’Loughlin.
