Alien Spaceman Jesus





What do you call a crazy spaceman? - - An Astronut.

Note: Read my more recent: http://www.angelfire.com/crazy/spaceman/address.html
What follows is an updated online version of my ©1986 book WEIRD ESCHATOLOGY: AN ALTERNATIVE VIEW OF THE SECOND COMING (ISBN 0-9616435-0-1; Library of Congress Class. BT823.M55 1986; Dewey Class. 236/.9 19; World Catalog OCLC No. 49632860; Amazon Standard Id. No.: 0961643501). By the time you finish, you may conclude that this particular peculiar interpretation of the (psychedelic) Book of Revelation should be relegated to the teachings of self-appointed cranks, crackpots, prophets of doom and various other assorted fanatics. But perhaps, even so, your own view may be clarified when you read this. The first chapter deals with theology and may be slightly dull, but fasten your seatbelt, as I will get more and more weird ahead (in terms of any interpretation you have seen before). Note that I make use of mostly unobtainable texts and obscure films. Lack of access to these sources should not impede your understanding of what follows. Also, to emphasize the ostensibly momentous issues I am dealing with here, I capitalize the subject phrases I discuss. My site has been attacked repeatedly since the very minute I linked to Christian sites. Don't shoot the messenger! You call yourself Christian, so why do you resort to scurrilous, underhanded attacks? Where is your Christian charity? If what I have to say angers you, use my guestbook to list specific criticisms.




CHAPTER ONE: A PLAUSIBLE TIMETABLE
Return to TABLE OF CONTENTS




Are you a Christian? Do you believe in the Second Coming at some future date? Is it legitimate to construct timetables for these future events?

Rhetorical questions such as these right off the bat may well put you off. A major difficulty is that no consensus as to when and in what sequence these predicted events must take place. This topic has always been a particular source of schism and polemic. I will be proposing specific dates as numerous have in each generation before me. And as many have been before me, I can be refuted by the mere passage of time.

The majority view espoused by most evangelicals is pretribulational premillennalism, which I only partially agree with. I will point out that part of this view is in fact based on a historical novelty that only traces back to the nineteenth century. What I mean here is that in terms of the glacially slow movement of theology (remember that the canon was finalized some two thousand years ago), the majority view is a relatively recent innovation.

I prefer a distinctly minority position, which would be called multiple-rapture postmillennialism. The postmillennial position holds that many of the predictions made in the New Testament, including those of the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24, Mk 13, Luke 21), were accomplished in the early Christian era, and their past fulfillment limits the future events to be expected. There exists one school, represented by, for example, Max King and Timothy James, which holds that each and every prophecy of the entire New Testament was accomplished during the early Church age. However, I feel this view neglects proper consideration of the Book of Revelation.

Postmillennialism is also sometimes referred to as preterism, which implies that the text is allowed to speak without exegesis. 'The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field; which indeed is smaller than all seeds. But when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches.' The parable of the mustard seed "suggests the growth of the kingdom of God from tiny beginnings to worldwide size." Thus, when Jesus repeatedly predicts the Kingdom within a generation, I do not write off the statement as a mistake or excess of enthusiasm. Instead, I draw up a timetable that shows the Kingdom beginning a generation after the Crucifixion. Then, when John of Patmos says the Millennium starts at this date of the beginning of the Kingdom, I duly go to my chart (see Timetable at my site) and set the Thousand Year Clock ticking. There was in fact a specific date a generation after the Crucifixion - the pivotal date of A.D. 70. This was the historical date of the Fall of Jerusalem, which is not a particularly prominent date in more mainstream discussions. This is the date of the First Resurrection in the terminology of John of Patmos that begins the Millennium.

What happened in A.D. 70? God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform. After a lengthy siege by the Roman legions, Jerusalem was ransacked and leveled. Jesus answering said to him, 'See you these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone on another, that shall not be thrown down.' To the secular eye, as detailed by Josephus in THE JEWISH WAR in gory detail, the scene was one of mass destruction in which not even the Temple was spared. A.D 70 blew it to Kingdom Come and the prophesied Kingdom did come. For to the spiritual eye, as Russell’s PAROUSIA demonstrated more than a century ago, these events were the fulfillment of the Olivet Discourse and the return of Jesus and His conquering armies in the clouds to inaugurate the spiritual reign with the saints and martyrs. Other sources listed in the bibliography including Chilton’s PARADISE RESTORED espouse this view. Chilton nominated Jerusalem as the Whore of Babylon and Rome as the Beast. (Note added 2006: In my 1986 Timetable I followed Chilton. I have since reversed my opinion. I now see Rome as the Whore and Jerusalem as the Beast.)

I need to stop for a moment to consider the question of the dating of the Book of Revelation. The presently accepted date for the appearance of the Book of Revelation is A.D. 95. If this is the correct date, the fulfillment of the predictions made so far would be merely a matter of hindsight. I recommend John A. T. Robinson’s examination of this question in REDATING THE NEW TESTAMENT. Robinson cites extensive internal and external evidence for moving the date of the Book of Revelation back to the A.D. 70 timeframe. Further, he traces the standard A.D. 95 view back to a single source. This source is a statement by Irenaeus that the Apocalypse first appeared “toward the end of Domitian’s reign.” This statement is ambiguous and may even be merely mistaken. Other sources listed in the bibliography (including Chilton and James) accept an earlier date.

The Book of Revelation represents a significant amplification of the preceding Gospels and Epistles. Here the concept of the Millennium is introduced for the first and only time. The timetable presented by John of Patmos extends forward to the future Judgment Day and the establishment of the New Jerusalem, thereby completing the New Testament Canon.

Turning to the time period of the Millennium, lasting approximately from A.D. 70 to A.D. 1070, the starting point was the spiritual event, the Parousia, as detailed by Russell and Chilton. But secular historians looking back at this time period as a whole have labeled it the Dark Ages. More recently this verdict has been tempered by the demonstration of the development and technical progress that occurred in the Middle and Far East during these years (the brief flowering of Islam before it plunged back into it's status quo of Darkness). But it does remain true that for Western Civilization, primarily Western Europe for these years, these were times of unprecedented barbarism and ignorance. During these times the blood of countless martyrs was spilled in belatedly laying down the Roman Empire and establishing the Church. Violence was the order of the day and sugarcoating or rose-colored glasses are unnecessary. The First Resurrection was an event of mass destruction and the Kingdom or Millennium was an era of barbarism. In other words, it is not an accident or coincidence that the fulfillment of the prophecies was apocalyptic. Instead, there is an important principle to remember here, since I will point out that Judgment Day will also be mass destruction and the New Jerusalem to follow will appear to secular eyes again be relative barbarism. I will take up these thoughts again in later chapters.

Why didn’t Judgment Day begin about A.D.1070 with the end of the Millennium? Historically, many of the people living then did expect to see the Messiah return. I answer instead that this was the date when Satan was unbound for his season. Here I part company with many of the sources listed in the bibliography. They prefer to see the Millennium as an indeterminate period extending potentially thousands of years with Satan loosed for his season only shortly prior to the Second Coming. They see the Church still in the Millennial period expanding and consolidating its gains to ultimately convert the entire world immediately prior to the Advent. On the contrary, I hold that John of Patmos really meant a time period of approximately one thousand years, and that Satan has been at work sowing his evil. I admit that the season has now lasted nearly a thousand years in its own right. One consolation is that this extended period is finally about to come to a close. Satan has been quite busy from my point of view during the last centuries. Examples of his infamous work would be such events as the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Counter-Reformation, the Inquisition, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution on down to the contemporary horrific mass movements. I could be accused of being a feudalist or an obscurantist here. However, I do not look back to the Kingdom so much as forward to the approaching New Jerusalem. At this point in time I feel we are reaching the low point of the curve descending to Hell, immediately prior to the Messiah’s return.

Thus, I teach hellfire and damnation, as do most of the right wing evangelists who hold the premillennial view. But, as I have said, the postmillennialists of the bibliography, who are also uniformly conservative for the most part, place much less emphasis on this aspect.

I am also in agreement with the premillennialists with respect to the Rapture. Historically, for eighteen centuries the Rapture was taken as essentially simultaneous with the Advent. This is detailed by, among others, MacPherson in THE GREAT RAPTURE HOAX and Kimball in THE RAPTURE: A QUESTION OF TIMING. MacPherson demonstrates that the nineteenth century so-called Scotch visionary seer Margaret MacDonald in 1830 introduced the pretribulational Rapture - a temporal separation of a Secret Rapture from the Second Coming. This introduction was a theological novelty or innovation. MacPherson traces the concept from its introduction through the nineteenth century figures Darby and Scofield to the mainstream electronic evangelists of today. I have said that I accept the multiple-Rapture view, which is a variation of the pretribulational Rapture. I agree, based on the work of my sources, that this view had its origins only in the nineteenth century. I will indicate why I hold that view in the last part of Chapter Three.

I should note that because I take a preterist perspective, I place less emphasis on seeing the events that occurred with the First Resurrection exactly duplicated on Judgment Day. For example, Nero (who fiddled while rome burned) was clearly the Antichrist for A.D. 70, but I don’t necessarily expect to see a new Antichrist prior to the Second Coming. If forced to, one could select from many twentieth century candidates for this post. Similarly, I don’t expect to see the coming events occurring at the actual Jerusalem this time. I prophesy in Chapter Four they will more likely begin in one of the advanced Western nations.Antichrist

Beginning with the next chapter, I will be using apparently incongruous sources, such as left wing sources from the sixties. I will delve into films and the media in general. These sources I will bring up are relevant to the issues of this chapter. So far I have outlined a plausible but not mainstream view of Christian eschatology. From this point forward, as promised, expect the view presented to be ‘weird‘.

CHAPTER TWO: A FIRST LOOK AT NORMAN O. BROWN
Return to TABLE OF CONTENTS

It is a tale

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. -Brown quotng Shakespeare


There is a good possibility you have never heard of Norman O. Brown or come across any of his writings. His books are now a generation old and partly out of print. Perhaps certain of the issues he raised have become moot with the passage of time.

I think when his books originally came out Brown was taken as merely a sexual radical. I say merely here in the sense that Brown would not be under discussion if I felt that was solely what he was about. A superficial reading of his cryptic, aphoristic style indeed does give this impression. It has been said of Brown's later books, 'They are largely a dazzling, nonlinear patische of fragments and quotations from different writers which Brown has made his own and, whatever the source, one can assume the voice is that of Brown'. However, the actual subject of two of his books, LOVE’S BODY (1966) and CLOSING TIME (1973) was religion. Of the two books, CLOSING TIME is currently out of print but necessary for a complete picture. With these two books Brown actually solved the mysteries of religion. Am I here claiming that if you comprehend these books you will have all your questions answered on religion? Yes, that is indeed what I am claiming. Brown did get all the way to the inner sanctum. If you are able to solve Brown’s puzzles, you will simultaneously solve the mysteries of religion. I say this fully aware that Brown’s erudition makes this a monumental task.

If I have piqued your curiosity, and you decide to take a look at Brown, the best procedure might be to look at some other sources as a preliminary. It’s all there in Brown in plain English, you understand, but you may have more success by circling in from the periphery. One good out of print source from the same time period is Eric Gutkind’s 'THE BODY OF GOD: FIRST STEPS TOWARD AN ANTI-THEOLOGY.' This book is also written in an aphoristic style. Comparing the title of this book with LOVE’S BODY will give you a clue to start you on the road to solving Brown. In my correspondence with Brown, he told only me he had to only open Gutkind's book to see the nearly word for word similarities with 'LOVE’S BODY'.

Gutkind as a Jew was familiar with this Kabbalistic concept of Adam Kadmon, which visionary seer William Blake referred to the Grand Man, and by which the Jew Spinoza derived his One Substance. 'Adam Kadmon is comparable to the Anthropos of Gnosticism. In Jungian theory, the Cosmic Man is an archetypical figure that appears in creation myths of a wide variety of mythology represents the oneness of human existence, or the universe. In the more modern interpretations, Cosmic Man is seen as an awaited Chosen Leader who is to appear at "the end of time" to establish a Golden Age or the Cosmic age of earth.' Brown says, 'Originally everything was body, ONE BODY (Novalis). . . .'Man is the dwarf of himself. Once he was permeated and dissolved by spirit. He filled nature with his overflowing currents. Out from him sprang the sun and moon; from man, the sun; from woman, the moon. The laws of his mind, the periods of his actions externalized themselves into day and night, into the year and the seasons. But, having made for himself this huge shell, his waters retired; he no longer fills the veins and veinlets; he is shrunk to a drop. He sees, that the structure still fits him, but fits him colossally. Say, rather, once it fitted him, now it corresponds to him from far and on high. . . . is disunited with himself . . . is a god in ruins.' (Pythagorean mysticism - Harmony of the World Sacred Geometry - quoting Emerson). But later to downgrade that idea, Brown in 'Closing Time' quotes Vico: '- -were frightened and astonished by the great effect whose cause they could not know, and raised their eyes and became aware of the sky. They pictured the sky to themselves as a great animated body, which in that aspect they called Jove, who meant to tell them something by the hiss of his bolts and the clap of his thunder.
Thus it was fear which created gods in the world.'

Gutkind was considered a prophet of the new age. Gutkind's writing was shrill and strident like most Leftists. For Gutkind, Capitalism is a 'system without man.' 'We live in a world that literally does not care (about us).' "You can't eat the orange and throw the peel away - a man is not a piece of fruit." 'Death of a Salesman.' 'You can't get blood from a stone!' We're all only hired hands here in Hell who get dismissed on a whim. He was disturbed because he unconsciously understood The Taboo (see my Address) was being violated, primarily by means of TV. He said, 'Something is hitting us out of the Stone Age.' Also, he said, 'The inrushing of the unconscious is one of the highest possibilities of man.' Brown was aware of the danger of the overwhelming of the conscious mind. But, Brown said, 'The goal cannot be the elimination of magical thinking, or madness; the goal can only be conscious magic, or conscious madness; conscious mastery of these fires. And dreaming while we are awake.'

Looking from the philosophical side, Michael Harrington’s THE POLITICS AT GOD’S FUNERAL astutely asks the right questions. The best book ever written on Jesus is Constantin Brunner's OUR CHRIST: THE REVOLT OF THE MYSTICAL GENIUS (1921). Here's an interesting sentence out of the book: ’There he hung, the blasphemer of God and slanderer of the most notable men, the poor malicious fool, the incorrigible wretch, the whoreson and whoremonger, the swindler, the liar, the seducer.’ The so-called radical Freudians, in general, such as Marcuse, Reich and Roheim in addition to Brown, are pertinent. See Paul Robinson’s 'The Freudian Left: Wilhelm Reich, Geza Roheim and Herbert Marcuse.'

There isn’t space for an exegesis of Brown. Instead I’ll outline a central idea - the importance of the Primal Scene. For the uninitiated, the Primal Scene is what Dad and Mom did in the bedroom. Now even Freud’s disciples had difficulty seeing the significance of the Oedipal Primal Scene and repeatedly attempted to revise their Master. Perhaps the best way to get an inkling of its significance is to set up a confrontation between the Joker (the little 'castrated' clown portrayed by Brown) and you. Put yourself in the following scene as a male:


You are standing on the outskirts of the big, modern city where you live as the Joker approaches.

The Joker begins, “You know, stranger, I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately and have seen several cities, including this one. I must say I don’t like what I’ve been seeing at all. In every town the residents use elaborate locks on their doors and seen to be afraid to get outside on their own sidewalks at night. One minute they use each other’s bodies as pleasure objects, and the next they sue each other at the slightest provocation. I see noise, confusion, mayhem and worse at each turn. I can’t think of a thing that happened in Sodom that hasn’t happened here many times over. 'If God doesn't do something soon, He's gonna have a lot of splainin to do to Sodom and Gomorrah.' Tell me, when you first came here was the city the same as it is now?”

You reply, “More or less it was, indeed.”

The Joker says, “This town is a hard place to try to make a living in. Life is so hectic, there is such a constant rush and din, that I sometimes believe I’m really caught in a nightmare and will wake up at any moment. This is no place to try to start a family or to raise a child. There’s no place for the kids to play here. You know, although I’ve had plenty of opportunities to unzip my pants and pull out my gun here, I just haven’t felt right about it and so far decided to keep my pants zipped up. But I see by the ring on your finger that the situation here apparently didn’t deter you. You had the same opportunity, after all, to look around and see what was going on. But I see that no matter what you saw, you weren’t about to stay away. You had to have it. I admit that I am only a Fool. But I ask you - who’s the better man?”

You: (Speechless).

The Joker resumes, “ Because I care about the evil I see and you don’t particularly care, you end up with a child to carry on your line, and I don’t. I ask you, which man has the greater love?”

You finally speak, “Before I punch you out, do you have anything more to say? - Any last words?”



The Joker ignores this and pauses a moment to scan the distant skyline. He then points a finger at the tallest skyscraper, rising in the mists - a source of civic pride known to all residents (and an indisputable phallic symbol).
Skyline Towers


(Note added: I here 'prophesied' the World Trade Center attack 20 years ago. Also note that the millennium of the Gregorian calendar began on 1 January 2001 since there is no year zero in it, so my Timetable 'prophecy' of '2000' still applies to the WTC Attack). Also note, 'The great alchemist Fulcanelli and others including Nostradamus have said that a great transmutation of the human species is going to takes place at some time near the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st. Stanley Kubrick picked the date 2001.' 'The Joker turns and asks, “How? - that building there - Tell me how that modern Tower of Babel was constructed? No, let me answer the question. It was constructed by men who at some time or other unzipped their pants. Not that a single one of them was ever forced to you understand. It is after all a voluntary act. Now I ask you to consider for a moment with me what would have happened if not one of these same men had ever unzipped their pants at all - not even one single time. How much of what you see around here now would still be here? I’ll answer - not a bit of it would here, including the building I just pointed to (a Sitting Duck Summit). I’ve been wondering these days why we put up with the perpetual nightmares here that we go through to get these massive monuments constructed. If we could just get all the women under control, we could sit around all day and drink beer and play cards.”

You reply, “Leave it to a shiftless ne’er-do-well to --”

The Joker interrupts, “What we really need here is a King - the absolute biggest Fool we can find with the largest member. I think you may agree that I am the perfect candidate for this job, as I’m absolutely no good for anything else.” (by the way, the Joker will happily sell you the “deed to the Brooklyn Bridge.” Or, some “lakefront property in the Arizona desert.”)

The pair glare at each other, ready to fight.





Let me make the important point about this tale that the ‘you” of the dialogue could just as well be the Joker’s father as anyone else - not a single line of the preceding would need to be changed. (In the original tale of Oedipus meeting his father at the crossroads, the pair had been separated and there was a disguise and neither seemed to recognize the other, at least consciously. ('Oedipus (an adoptee and therefore liminal) met his father at the crossroads. Major transformations occur at crossroads and other liminal places (boundaries), at least partly because liminality — being so unstable—can pave the way for access to esoteric knowledge or understanding of both sides. Liminality is sacred, alluring, and dangerous.') If the ’you’ of the narrative were indeed the Joker’s father, the Joker would then literally be a son of a gun. This would also make the Joker on his mother’s side literally an S.O.B.

In the dialogue that took place at the Temptation of Christ (Matt. 4:1-11, Mk. 2:13, Luke 4:1-13), Jesus rejected Satan’s offer of the kingdoms of this world. Brown says we are indeed in Satan’s kingdom, i.e., Hell, especially in the big cities. Jesus will one day accept dominion over the earthly kingdoms, but only on Judgment Day when His enemies have been made into footstools. When He does return, He will bring the keys to Hell and to Death. 'I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore (resurrected); and have the keys of hell and of death.' This implies that a massive restructuring of present urban life - our man-made Hell - will begin at this point.


'When the seventh angel blew his trumpet, there were loud voices in heaven, saying, 'The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.'

'♪ The kingdom of this world is become
The kingdom of our lord

King of kings and lord of lords
And he shall reign forever and ever'

To change the subject, if you have an interest in James Joyce, you should examine the excerpts Brown has collected in CLOSING TIME. Joyce either imitates (or himself actually is) the insane, and the WAKE is from start to finish nothing but the gibberings of a madman. FINNEGANS WAKE is a textual Rorschach test, by which I mean that in its voluminous pages, any phrase you are looking for before you open the book can likely be found. But all the excerpts Brown has assembled taken together conclusively demonstrate that Joyce ‘cracked’ religion, i.e., that all the answers were set down in the WAKE. In other words, Brown demonstrates that Joyce earlier pioneered the same trail in that Brown found. I don’t want to go beyond fair use and start quoting text, so I’ll stop. (Note added: An Appendix below now includes a sample of these excerpts).

'Dr. Strangelove' - Dropping The Big One! Down The Chute!




I’ll ask some questions about this list to clarify it. At first sight, looking over this by no means exhaustive list, it appears we need to get out our umbrellas (or perhaps a degree in meteorology). The first question to ask is: How many of these phrases have you ever come across before? Try to think where, if anywhere, any of these phrases can be found. After thinking it over, you might decide that some show up in literature, some may be from the Bible, but many of them come from the media.

The next question about the list would be: by grouping all these phrases together as I did, did I thus intend to imply that each phrase is identical or synonymous with each other phrase in the list? No, they are interchangeable in only a few cases, but they are interrelated. What then do the phrases have in common? My answer is that all bear a direct relationship to a single phrase:

MASS PSYCHOSIS!

This particular phrase, Mass Psychosis, you are probably less likely to have come across. Mass Psychosis is in fact the actual meaning of the Secret Rapture doctrine of the Fundamentalists.

Now I’m sure if one had the opportunity to interview rock star Prince and ask him what he meant by Purple Rain that he would not immediately reply, “a codeword for mass psychosis.” Similarly, Bob Dylan wouldn’t be inclined to say, “When I sang about Idiot Wind, I meant mass psychosis.” I would instead expect convoluted explanations involving literary metaphors, etc., if I received any reply at all.

Incidentally, I mentioned Prince deliberately since there was controversy about his ‘explicit ’ lyrics when his songs came out. I note that his critics had nothing at all to say about the other dimension of his songs I am pointing to here - Judgment Day by 1999. Prince's source was:

'Cause the free wind is blowin' through your hair
And the days surround your daylight there
Seasons crying no despair
Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

Wishin' on a falling star
Waitin' for the early train
Sorry boy, but I've been hit by purple rain
Aw, come on, Joe, you can always
Change your name
Thanks a lot, son, just the same
Ventura Highway in the sunshine
Where the days are longer
The nights are stronger than moonshine
You're gonna go I know'                                            (America)

Here I want to stop discussion of the list and return at the end of this chapter with more comments. Let me briefly return to the general topic of the media. By media I mean all the conduits by which paid entertainment reaches us - film, radio, television, etc. Because television has such a voracious appetite, I will be using the term media and TV more or less interchangeably. Think of how TV, in order to fill each and every hour, gobbles up the output of the other media, from films to stage plays to even rock music in the form of music videos.(Jump to my 1986 Music Video list)

Here's a shot from an MTV video, showing Reich's Rainmaker:

Cloudbusting


Some of us are logging in nearly a third of our lives glued to out sets these days. Television: The Plug-In Drug - Television zombies. A clue according to Brown is, 'The phallus is so closely identified with magic in Roman religion that the word fascinum meaning 'enchantment', 'witchcraft' (cf. fascinate), is one of the standard Latin terms for the phallus.' As a baby boomer, I teethed on TV and took its pervasive influence for granted. But, after decades of exposure we have now had, I feel it is time we should begin a serious examination of the media. Its influence is probably considerably greater than literary sources today.

Already by the sixties we had the McLuhanesque dictum that the medium is the message. This idea is that the content is not particularly important, but rather the existence and ubiquitousness of the medium itself is the most significant fact. 'Neil Postman and McLuhan both insisted that "the medium is the message," that it matters less what we watch than that we watch. Tocqueville captures our present dilemma. TV, like democracy, is a technology of freedom. It provides a window onto many worlds and offers vast amounts of information. It also caters ever more perfectly to the very proclivities — materialism and privatism — that in Tocqueville's view produce dissatisfaction and disengagement, tending "to isolate men from each other." Tocqueville, who would have appreciated the political dimension of our attention-deficit democracy: For those who immerse themselves too completely in their private worlds, self-government can seem an annoying intrusion. Such citizens may be tempted to delegate increasing authority to a centralized administration. Inattentive and inwardly focused, having lost the habit and art of associating, they would be unlikely to notice the erosion of their freedom and unable to stop it in any case. In the end, democracy as a technology of freedom may actually make citizens more dependent: dependent on an overweening administration and on the petty pleasures for which they sacrificed self-government.' 'TV makes us fat, lazy, inattentive, unsociable, mistrustful, materialistic — and unhappy about all of that. It cheapens political discourse, weakens family ties, prevents face-to-face socializing, and exposes kids to sex and inures them to violence.' 'Postman decried TV content’s ever-increasing speed and flux. But the pace race carries costs. By making real life seem dull by comparison, the images impair our ability to pay attention to it. TV induces a semi-hypnotic state.'

Let me look at media criticism in terms of increasing level of profundity. At the lowest, most abysmal level, the media are seen as providing harmless entertainment. But the billions of dollars we dump into the media demonstrate that much more is going on. Slightly better is the extreme right wing evangelical view that TV and films are the devil’s picture book and rock music is the devil’s music. This approach has the virtue of being factually correct, but has fallen on increasingly hard times as all but the diehards have capitulated and joined in the media cacophony (bombardment by a blizzard of images and sounds) themselves. Massive blocks of radio broadcast time and entire cable networks are devoted to selling Jesus sandwiched in between the ads for soap and used cars.

Slightly more discriminating is the idea that TV is a boob tube and rock music is subversive trash, and exposure to one or both may permanently warp your brain (leave you brain dead). Is the ultimate objective to produce a race of mindless, godless, zombie giants (the return of the “men of renown” of Genesis as described by Brown in CLOSING TIME)? Remember, the fallen angels descended to earth because the daughters of men were fair/beautiful and sired these nephilim (giants).

What indeed keeps us mesmerized by the flickering images hour after hour? Why are so many of us couch potatoes - practically frozen into stone statues? What are we really watching? Joyce in the Wakes calls it, 'swishingsight teilweisioned'.

The answer from Norman O. Brown is that we are seeing the Oedipal Primal Scene reenacted night

after night in endless repetition with slight variations. You object, “I beg your pardon. I watched

a game show followed by a situation comedy last night.” What we are really doing here is paying

performers to put on the only show we want to see.

Finally, at the highest level of criticism, we also simultaneously get the final verdict on the media. We are watching Jesus get crucified night after night in excruciating detail (from the Latin excruciare, which is from cruciare, to crucify. It literally means "a pain like the pain of crucifixion"), although we may not be consciously aware of it. After decades of this, I think it is likely to catch up with us some day. In other words, the lurid violence and evil we see depicted in the media (tortures of the damned) may eventually come to us in real life.

In spite of the blanket condemnation of the last paragraph, I’m going to turn around and list some movies. Ideally you should stay away. But the payoff is going to come to us all, whether or not we individually may or may not have watched. In the meantime, perhaps we can use the opportunity to study both the overt and the subtle techniques being employed.

The primary genre to keep an eye on is science fiction. As Susan Sontag said in the sixties, this is the genre of apocalypse and mass destruction. Typically, as in the prototype FRANKENSTEIN (1932), a man attempts to appropriate the prerogatives of God (technically blasphemy) and reaps madness and disaster. These are rigidly moral parables where retribution is swift and sure.

Look, for example, at Rene Clair’s THE CRAZY RAY (1923) from the infancy of the industry. The elements that were to become cliches with decades of continuous repetition were already present. A mad scientist invents a ray machine he constructs inside the Eiffel Tower (a modern thrusting, phallic Tower of Babel) that freezes the inhabitants of Paris into stone statues (= fairy Clockstopping).

The Crazy Ray



An aircraft initially out of range of the ray lands (temporarily circumscribed/quarantined/the Dead Zone), and the passengers are astonished when they disembark.

The Crazy Ray - Statues!
'The Crazy Ray' (1923)- Frozen into Stone Statues!


One worthwhile principle of criticism is to pay particular attention to the message of film titles. In this example, the title might bring to mind such questions as: “did the title mean the inventor was crazy? Or did the ray have crazy effects? Or did the ray drive people crazy, implying that to turn people to stone is to drive them mad?” Properly understood, that was the last movie that ever needed to be made, since there was enough there to kill us all! (a Freeze Frame Flashbulb Strobe Light Snapshot/Human Sculpture of a Madman copycat mimic of Hannibal Lecter)



A quite similar theme is presented in THE VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED (1960) and its sequel THE CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED (1964) (what questions do these titles bring to mind?). This time a mysterious influence seals off an entire village, the perpetrators in this case being invading aliens. These residents are under a temporary global blackout/alien dreamtime and will have amnesia about what occurred when awakened with PTSD (Post Trauma Stress Disorder). Here, as in THE CRAZY RAY, a geographic area is temporarily circumscribed/quarantined. Compare with Stephen Kings 'Under the Dome' where an area is circumscribed/quarantined) for alien testing. In the film, the females are impregnated by the aliens and subsequently bear children with glowing eyes and mysterious powers. This aspect of the film echoes the tale in the Book of Enoch of the fallen angels who descended to earth to mate with the women because the daughters of men were fair/beautiful dolls and sired the Nephilim (giants) and to teach forbidden arts of cosmetics, etc..

Village of the Damned
'Village of the Damned' Super Children with Glowing Eyes

Let me quickly note a few relevant characteristics of paranoid schizophrenia as described by, for example, Norman O. Brown, Geza Roheim or Victor Tausk. The patient believes evil entities such as aliens from another world are secretly conspiring to do him harm. The patient may believe his enemies are employing physical equipment such as beam projectors against him. He is subject to seeing hallucinations or hearing voices attempting to guide his actions against his will. In THE NEXT VOICE YOU HEAR (1950) normal radio broadcasts are interrupted for short periods each night, and the cast seems to hear a message. This message seems to be more or less the Sermon on the Mount. Was this the voice of God? If not, what was it?

Another frequent theme in science fiction is the nomination of candidate (false) messiahs. I say false, since we are merely watching actors playing a fictional role. A real life prototype of these characters if found would not automatically thereby be a messiah. An example is THE MAN FROM PLANET X (1951), which has an alien who is trapped and needs earthly assistance.

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (1951) (note the title which = fairy Clockstopping = Biblical sun standing still - a Freeze Frame Flashbulb Strobe Light Snapshot) offers another false messiah. An alien descends in a saucer, takes on the interesting name of Mr. Carpenter, is killed and resurrected three days later, etc. In the case of this film, the extensive analogies were conscious on the part of some of the production people and were taken from the story on which the film is based. 'If the Earth dies, you die. But if you die, the Earth survives.' Thus sprach telepathic Klaatu (Kenau Reeves) in creepy deadpan metallic monotone in the 2008 remake. Klaatu loads up spheres as Arks with specimens of all species in preparation for the Flood he intends to unleash. Klaatu has the authority to judge Earth - to put Humanity on Trial. My clear task as space alien Klaatu is to rapture out billions of you devils (all of you whom which were once human beings)! The Fall of Man doctrine: 'We cannot save the world and happily it doesn’t need saving… humans are only one of very many species, and not worth preserving. Later or sooner, they will become extinct. When gone, the Earth will recover. Long after the last traces of the human animal have disappeared, at least a few of the species it is bent on destroying will still be around, along with others that have yet to spring up. The Earth will forget mankind.' 'We've used up our Grace Period!'

In the BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS (1958) (my all time favorite movie), an alien possesses/infects a scientist, who then embarks on a mad quest to rule the world. He shoots airliners out of the sky with his eyes while cackling maniacally. This is Wizard Rainmaking. He causes megaton explosions with no visible weapons in a blackmail scheme for world domination. He is a sex fiend.

Ingmar Bergman’s THE MAGICIAN (1958) presents a rather dyspeptic false messiah from a traveling carnival show who wrestles the men who enter the tent. He's a substitute for Angels who are prone to wrestling with humans. The messiah of WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND (1962) (note the title) is a fugitive mistaken for Jesus when discovered in their barn. When apprehended and frisked, he stretches his arms to form a cross. THE FLIM FLAM MAN (1967) is a petty con artist living by his wits. CHARLY (1968) is mentally retarded until chemically transformed into a supermind. THE RULING CLASS (1971) has a wizard fight (= unconsciously a slime white meringue pie fight between clowns/madmen)to determine which madman is 'Christ', the winner being an apparent psychopath gibbering racing thoughts. 'I'm the high-voltage Messiah, the electric Christ, the AC/DC god.'

The Ruling Class

THE OMEGA MAN (1971), a remake of THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (1964), (note the titles) offers another ersatz messiah. In ZARDOZ (1973), the messiah figure is a barbarian.


In 'The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari' (1919), the Professor is a wizard with his magic wand (phallus), and the 'cabinet' is the film replacement for a coffin where he raises the 'dead' - his subject stiff as a stone statue under his spell. He raises the subject (means phallic erection) as his alter ego to do what he would really want to to, which is to go out and abduct beautiful women to bring them back to his lair. This was the real objective of Baron Victor Frankenstein when he created his monster. It is a version of the B.E.M. (Bug-Eyed-Monster) and a version of the inmates take over the asylum.

SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW (2004) has as the villain a madman such as I, a W.W.1 proto-Nazi in his grave (he is 'Living Dead'!) named German Totenkopf (Death's Head) who supervises the building of a new Noah's Ark (my silver seed to the future) with robots = (rigid = erection). Sky Captain destroys the Ark, since it will set off my worldwide detonation (the Big One).


Noah's Ark Spaceship

HOLOCAUST 2000 (1978) (note the prediction in the title) presents the spectacle of Kirk Douglas wildly running up and down the Middle Eastern oilfields proclaiming the Ten Horns, etc. from the Book of Revelation. The messiah of THE LAST WAVE (1979) is an aboriginal witch doctor. In BEING THERE (1979), a simple-minded gardener who can barely tie his bootlaces and who happens not too surprisingly to be named Mr. Gardiner impresses the President as a sage. At the end of the film he walks on water since no one has told him this is impossible (No visible means of support - Suspended).

'Being There' film

'Being There' (1979) He Walks On Water!

A not very bright academic in SIMON (1979) is prevailed upon to impersonate a spaceman. After a period of rigorous mental brainwashing and physical conditioning, Simon comes to believe that he actually is an alien. He uses equipment that interrupts regular television broadcasts when he periodically wants to deliver messages. He rants and harangues in the style of Castro. In RIDERS OF THE STORM (1986), riders on a bomber also interrupt TV broadcasts.

Woody Allen’s ZELIG (1984) features a schizophrenic chameleon who supposedly hobnobbed with the leading political figures of the thirties. In the PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO (1985), also by Woody Allen, a larger than life hero steps out of the screen in a movie theater (the characters break the 'Fourth Wall,' the imaginary "wall" at the front of the stage/screen and speak directly to the audience) and into the squalid life of a New Jersey housewife. CREATOR (1985) has a loony college professor who is attempting to resurrect his dead wife. The students he recruits for the project are lectured on the Big Picture. In 'Weird Science' (1985), computer nerds conjure a Barbie Doll sex toy/Robot (the gorgeous sexy Kelly Le Brock). (Doll = rigid = stone statues = erection - Sproing!).

Weird Science Barbie Doll

Jerome Bixby's, 'It's a Great Life', seen as a Twilight Zone episode, shows a child with godlike powers: able to transform other people or objects into anything he wishes, think new things into being, teleport himself and others where he wishes, read the minds of people and animals, change the weather to suit himself and even revive the dead. He turns one into a doomed jack-in-the-box/dunce/scarecrow and exiles him to the cornfield. Adults must satisfy his every whim, or risk displeasing him. It's blackmail!

The film M (1931) (originally titled 'Murderers Among Us') caused the Nazis to issue death threats as they assumed it was about them (it was about a pedophile). They used the Reichstag fire by a deranged arsonist to suppress the Communists. Hitler and Goebbels "discovered" that the Reichstag was on fire, and arrested an incoherent Dutch Communist (drugged?) wondering around the building. They had him charged and executed. It was their justification to the German people, to "crack down on dangerous elements", to "increase security" and "suspend human rights and freedoms for the good of the nation. "The Reichstag Fire Syndrome occurs whenever a nation is destroyed by a conspiring junta creating a law-and-order crisis and offering as a "solution" the abdication of civil liberties and states' rights to a powerful but unaccountable central cabal.'

The film THE LAST AIRBENDER (2010) depicts a Chosen One, a boy (really meaning a fairy – a boy in the body of a man) with the power to emit and receive on the Weird Radio. He can bend the 'air', i.e., curve space and warp time. He is the lone human who can harness the powers of each element to restore Cosmic Yin-yang balance to the ravaged world. Like the Hanged Man of the Tarot cards and Jesus and I, the rest of the world will stop at nothing to turn us off.

'The Last Airbender' - Orgone



The 'smoky' mist is being emitted by the 'boy' from his mountaintop cavern. Unconsciously this signifies the slime he is spewing from his Fire Hose/Water Cannon planetwide! Little Boy Blue come blow your horn (boy in the body of a man who spews slime)! I roll boulders down on mankind that dares to scale (storm Heaven) my mountaintop dwelling (sit on top of Holy Mountain as King of the World = rain down slime from my Gliding Fairy Boat/Heavenly Throne Perch).

The Last Airbender - Pie Fight!


'The rest of the world will stop at nothing to turn us off.' The warships are lobbing flaming shells (unconscously slime) to stop the boy spewing. It's a pie fight!

Numerous other films with similar themes are listed in the bibliography, but, due to space limitations, I won’t give further examples here. Men play god in the movies, but do they in real life? I point to such research as genetic engineering, or the ‘star wars’ project (laser weapons, beam projectors, etc.) These devices were first 'prophesied' in science fiction, but always accompanied by warnings we conveniently ignored that to develop them would be to court disaster. Further, I will shortly point out that while these films depict physical devices, such actual equipment is unnecessary to produce the effects depicted.

As for the entertainment industry, we pour multiple billions into it year in and year out. For what we pay we get back entertainment, but additionally, we also get back social engineering that we didn’t necessarily ask for. I am by no means suggesting a conscious conspiracy or deliberate plot by Hollywood. The fundamental problem is again expressed by McLuhan - the medium is the message. In other words, inherent in the nature of the images produced by the media is a latent potential for subversion and ultimately destruction.

From this point to the end of the chapter, I will again take up the list with which I began this chapter. Upon completing the listing, I said each term was related to the term Mass Psychosis. I now claim we have already had several actual episodes. The first, in late August 1973, lasted nearly two weeks. It occurred during the Watergate period and was done primarily by the ‘hippies’. The April 1983 event occurred during the time of the American embassy bombing in Lebanon. The October 1983 event occurred during the time of the Marine barracks bombing in Lebanon. The most recent event was the broadcast made while the Tower of Babel 9-11 attack (World Trade Center) was simultaneously taking place. These broadcasts lasted only a day or so each and were done by a remnant handful of people (angels).

What is the Invisible Rain like when it is falling? A person walking down the street may stop for a second, look around quizzically (what the #&*!), perhaps sniff the air, and then continue on. You’ve lived through it - you tell me what it’s like.

A few comments to wrap up the chapter. These events should not be referred to as a Flood, because of God’s promise in Genesis that there would be no more Flood. The New Testament imagery is always fire. 'The present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.' (2 Peter) I hold Margaret MacDonald’s Secret Rapture innovation of the nineteenth century correct, since we now have hindsight on these (multiple) events. There may or may not be more before the Messiah returns. After all, no one can predict the weather.

The ancient Kings of Egypt, Babylon and elsewhere carried such honorific epithets, many of which indicated phallic potency for a reason since my member does rise (stiffen = erection)! It has a lumbering life of its own. Some of the names readers for acquainted with the old film serials (a few of which I list) may resonate. The villains of the Saturday matinee cliffhangers had such creepy names as these or the Lightning or the Purple Monster or Dr. Satan. They were all mad and all bad and dangerous to know. Their schemes ranged from criminal Masterminds to plots for World Domination (mwahahaha!). Their weapons included mysterious rays bombarding earth, such as Chinese style Emperor Ming the Merciless' Purple Death and Nitron beams (stand-ins for the Reichian Orgone), with real life counterparts now being constructed. Madman Emperor Ming the Merciless as the Man behind the Curtain: 'I test each life system in the Universe. I visit it with mysteries, earthquakes, unpredicted eclipses, strange craters in the wilderness... If these are taken as natural, I judge that system ignorant and harmless - I spare it. But if the Hand of Ming is recognized in these events, I judge that system dangerous to us. I destroy it utterly.' (the Deathstar was modeled on this serial original.) Natural disasters such as earthquakes, lightning strikes and stormy seas were in earlier times said (superstitiously) to be caused the ancient gods – Acts of God. As also in 'Flesh Gordon', the villain (also Chinese style) "Emperor Wang", directed a "sex ray" at Earth which caused the planet's inhabitants to become uncontrollably sexually aroused. The tall phallic Space Gun in the spacecraft manned by dead alien of ALIEN (1979) comes from that lineage. They are stand-ins for the floodgates of Heaven that I open to rain slime planetwide!

A couple of songs:

'You take a mortal man,
And put him in main control
Watch him become a god,
Watch peoples heads a'roll
A'roll...
A'roll

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A'warring for the heavens,

Strapped to the wing with the engine running

Tied to a chair, and the bomb is ticking
This situation was not of your picking
You say that this wasn't in your plan

You come to me like a moth to the flame
It's love you need but I don't play that game
'Cause you could be my greatest fan
But I'm nobody's friend, I'm a demolition man

I'm a three line whip, I'm the sort of thing they ban
I'm a walking disaster, I'm a demolition man                                           (Sting)

Let me ask a few rhetorical questions. Are we perhaps involved in a real life version of the children’s game King of the Mountain in order to pick out the Messiah? Consider the paranoid schizophrenic with delusions of grandeur or possibly what is diagnosed as a messianic complex. What has this to do with the Messiah? Am I suggesting the Messiah will be merely a madman? Let me define a fairy or Peter Pan. A fairy is chronologically and physiologically an adult but has refused to assume an adult identity (ego) and has refused to take on adult responsibility. A fairy more or less never outgrows the omniscience, omnipotence and sense of wonder possessed by the infant, and inhabits fantasy mental worlds in preference to the real world. Again, I ask, what has this to do with the Messiah?

I took a brief look in the preceding chapter at some of what I felt were candidate messiahs being put forward by the movie industry. I wonder if we might be getting practice for recognizing the actual Messiah when He returns. I feel such practice may well be a good idea, since; for one thing, the Messiah won’t be riding the White Horse this time (that was done in A.D. 70). Neither do I expect to see a flying saucer descending from the skies to a world capital.

I suspect it will be an Incarnation in the manner that occurred at Bethlehem. At that time, only the Wise Men and a handful of others could discern the Messiah. One dictionary definition of blasphemy is for a mortal to name himself a god. The word apotheosis means men who are becoming gods. I feel there could well be an early period when the Chosen One is accused as a blasphemer or the Antichrist. A considerable period of time may elapse before He is acclaimed Lord of lords and King of kings.

At any rate, once the Messiah is actually recognized, it will then become a situation of “when the saints go marching in.” In whichever country He first appears, the Messiah and a motley crew of followers will walk into the capital city and take power. You say you want to be in that number? I suggest you think carefully about it. To the secular eye this will be a Fool’s Parade or Goon Squad made up of Snake People (Marching Morons) - the actual ‘meek’ who will then inherit the earth. I repeat - do you want to be in that number?

How, you may object, will a mere handful of such people be able to take over a major capital city? The context is important here. We are dealing at this point in time with a nation under siege internally and externally, soon to fall. Numerous other portentous dire events will be occurring simultaneously that will dilute the significance of the central event. The World Trade Center attack, 9-11, was just the inaugural event of a coming series of catastrophes. We are on an accelerating descending slope. God is against us now for our Godless Wicked ways. When God turns His back on us (God Against Us), we quickly self destruct and fall into anarchy and civil war. You've become heathen devils! This will be confirmed by the disasters coming ahead prophesied here.

Initially the Messiah will assume actual secular political power in order to obtain the objective of reinstating theocracy - an archaic form of government long abandoned and forgotten by Western nations. Looking again with secular eyes, whether considered from the political left or from the political right, the government will be a de facto fascist government - no matter what label is ostensibly applied to it. To provide an example of the type of events that will be taking place, if, and I cannot overemphasize the hypothetical, if this occurs in Washington, DC, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights will be abolished and both Houses of Congress dissolved. I find this idea unpalatable, and I feel none of the sources I have mentioned would find this palatable, nor would you. I do not believe these events will occur in the actual Jerusalem, but, as I have indicated, one of the major Western capitals, which will then become a platform for world domination.

' Come and keep your comrade warm.
I'm back in the U.S.S.R. hey
You don't know how lucky you are boy'     (Beatles)


W. Reich in the Forties prior to even the advent of national TV took a look at popular culture in THE MURDER OF CHRIST. He was acutely aware of the possibility of fascism, having had direct experience with the mass movements of the twentieth century of both the left and the right. What would be his verdict now, some sixty years later? Many science fiction films have dramatized a fascist takeover. Are they a prototype for future real events?

The evolutionary stages the government will undergo can be expressed in the Marxist schemata. The first phase corresponds to the dictatorship of the proletariat (rule by the meek). Then begins the transition period to the withering away of the state and the classless society or New Jerusalem. Theologians have previously published outlines of the analogies between Marxist mythology and Christian eschatology. And the return of the Messiah will actually fulfill Marx’s predictions, as well as those of John of Patmos simultaneously. During the transition period, it will be a matter of being forced to do without various items we now take for granted. The entire entertainment industry will be dispensed with - television broadcasts, movies, rock music, etc. Much of the high technology of the West will be abandoned. We will cease constructing aircraft, rockets and probably even automobiles (do only angels have wings?) This will be accomplished with only a minimum of objection because the Messiah will rule with a Rod of Iron as the Book of Revelation predicts. He will be a combination Joe Stalin, Jim Jones, Adolph Hitler and Ayatollah Khomeni rolled into one. Amos in the Old Testament correctly prophesied the gnashing of teeth and tribulation that would come with the Day of the Lord.

Is Western Civilization about to officially end? Are we and our descendants to become almost exclusively concerned with physical survival - staying alive? Don’t go outside to watch the skies for the Advent. Merely stay tuned to your TV set and start paying more attention. Have I seen one too many science fiction movies? Or is the show you never expected to see about to begin?

APPENDIX 1: THE SECRET RAPTURE
Return to TABLE OF CONTENTS


The Secret Rapture/Ascension/Global Blackout/Alien Dreamtime



In Case Of Rapture, This Car Will Be Unmanned! - Snatched!


The sentiment among most Catholics and many Christians generally is that there would be no Secret Rapture, and that it's not Biblical. Only a few 'incoherent' verses in (mainly) Paul lend support. Paul was out of his depth and language resources. It is real as the corpses I laid out! The remake of 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' informs us: 'If the Earth dies, you die. But if you die, the Earth survives.' Telepath Klaatu's metallic voice is that of an nonhuman mechanical man (robot). Klaatu loads up spheres as Arks with specimens of all species in preparation for the Flood he intends to unleash. My clear task as space alien Klaatu is to rapture out billions! Given the option of saving the few remaining dwindling animals on the one hand and all the billions of you devils, my choice is clear! The Fall of Man doctrine: 'We cannot save the world and happily it doesn’t need saving… humans are only one of very many species, and not worth preserving. Later or sooner, they will become extinct. When gone, the Earth will recover. Long after the last traces of the human animal have disappeared, at least a few of the species it is bent on destroying will still be around, along with others that have yet to spring up. The Earth will forget mankind.' “Gaia is as indifferent to our fates as the stars. In the long run, the biosphere survives but its species do not…” –Jonathan Weiner. 'The story of our Fall: we disobeyed the gods, tricked them, tried to be like them, flouted heaven. Disobedience, quarrelsomeness, ambition, greed-these are the crimes. By acting differently from the rest of creation, separating ourselves from divine will, we broke the harmony.' In a lousy, cheapo hippie movie, the title says it all, 'Gas! or It Became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It' (Gas = the planetwide rain of slime I send! = compare with Hitler's gas chambers!)



We're faced with two stark possibilities. Satan's agenda is to leave the Earth a burned out cinder, with no life forms higher than the insects left. “If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago (prior to Civilization when we were native). If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.” (Edward O. Wilson). 'The problem with letting nature take its course is that nature does not always have the best taste— nature smiles on the cockroach.' (Planetary Ashes and/or Ascension to Paradise?) The Lord's plan (my plan) now that He's turned his back on us is to destroy all humans for the sake of the planet and it's few remaining animals. When God turns His back on us (God Against Us), we quickly self destruct and fall into anarchy and civil war. He holds up the balance scale with the animals on one side and humans on the other side and gives us His Final Judgment.
And I give the Secret Rapture it's proper name:

MASS PSYCHOSIS!

Brief excerpts from Margaret MacDonald’s 1830 Secret Rapture prophecy:

It was first the awful state of the land that was pressed upon me. I saw the blindness and infatuation of the people to be very great. I felt the cry of Liberty to be just the hiss of the serpent to drown them in perdition. It was just ‘no God’, ----

I saw the people of God in an awfully dangerous situation, surrounded by nets and entanglements, about to be tried, and many about to be deceived and fall. Now will THE WICKED be revealed, with all power and signs and lying wonders, so that if it were possible the very elect will be deceived. (Note: none of her notes in fact actually show she had a concept of a Secret Rapture.)


'In the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.' 2 Timothy


APPENDIX 2: FROM NORMAN O. BROWN'S CLOSING TIME
Return to TABLE OF CONTENTS

Pierre Berthelot's (1827-1907) 'prophecy' , “Within a hundred years (from 1907 = approximately the 2010s).. God will come down to Earth with his big ring of keys (to Hell and to Death) and say to humanity, “Gentlemen, it is closing time.” (Note: quotes in this Appendix by or about Brown are colored brown to help distinguish them from my contribution.)

There two senses (at least) for Brown's title.
First, the approaching end of history and time.
'History is a nightmare from which I'm trying to awake.'
'Thatll beall for tody. Call it off. Godnotch, vryboily. End a muddy crushmess!'
'On the verge of closing time. --'
'It is later than you think.'
'Fieluhr? Filou! What age is at? It saon is late. What era's o'erring? Lang gong late. Faurore! Fearhouse! At last it past!'
'The thing that we dread has already happened. The thunder of the crash: -- The sense of an ending: Western Civilization is over.'

And secondly, 'Shut up shop, dappy. - And they all drank free.' It's up to us to insure that it's over.

Below are the citations that Brown in 1973 culled from Joyce's Wake (in quotes) and from Vico's New Science (labeled NS), and also from Brown's earlier LOVE'S BODY (1966)and LIFE AGAINST DEATH (1959). Brown's comments are labeled NOB. Combining Joyce with Vico (an acknowledged influence on Joyce) would be, according to Joyce, a feat of: 'the book of doubledends Jined'. Brown entwined Joyce and Vico. Joyce uses the word salad of the mad (gibbering) and the slurred speech of the drunken. Finnegan is after all an Irish pub owner well acquainted with whiskey.





'He lifts up the lifewand and the dumb speak.'

Men first feel necessity, then look for utility, next attend to comfort, still later amuse themselves with pleasure, thence grow dissolute in luxury, and finally go mad and waste their substance.  (NS)

First the age of the gods, then the age of heroes, 

then the age of men.  The origin is sacred; the decline is secularization, process is profanation.  (NOB)


In all nations of the world the priests kept such doctrine secret even from their own plebs, whence indeed it was everywhere called secret doctrine, for sacred is as much as to say secret.  (NS)



god-fearing giants, as opposed to the impious giants who continued the infamous communism of things and of women.  (NS)


As with Freud, it is primarily a matter of toilet training:
Mothers, like beasts, must merely have nursed their babies, let them wallow naked in their own filth. And these children, who had to wallow in their own filth, whose nitrous salts richly fertilized the fields, and who had to exert themselves to penetrate the forest, would flex and contract their muscles in these exertions, and thus absorb nitrous salts into greater abundance. They would be quite without that fear of gods, fathers and teachers which chills and benumbs even the most exuberant in childhood. They must have therefore have grown up robust, vigorous, excessively big in brawn and bone, to the point of becoming giants. (NS)
These were at first impious men, who recognized no divinity; there were nefarious, since relations among them were not distinguished by marriages; and finally, not understanding society int the midst of this infamous promiscuity of things, they were alone like wild beasts, and hence weak and lastly miserable and unhappy because they were in want of all the goods that are needed to keep life safe. (NS)

But if the peoples are rotting in that ultimate civil disease and cannot agree on a monarch from within, and are not conquered and preserved by better nations from without, then providence for their extreme ill has its extreme remedy at hand. For such peoples, like so many beasts, have fallen into the custom of each man thinking only of his own private interests and reached the extreme delicacy, of better of pride, in which like wild animals they bristle and lash out at the slightest displeasure. Thus no matter how great the throng and press of their bodies, they live like wild beasts in a deep solitude of spirit and will, scarcely any two being able to agree since each follows his own pleasure or caprice. By reason of all this, providence decrees that, through obstinate factions and desperate civil wars, they shall turn their cities into forests and the forests into dens and lairs of men. In this way, through long centuries of barbarism, rust will consume the misbegotten subtleties of malicious wits that have turned them into beasts made more inhuman by the barbarism of reflection than the first men had been made by the barbarism of sense. For the latter displayed a generous savagery, against which one could defend oneself or take flight or be on one's guard; but the former, with a base savagery, under soft words and embraces, plots against the life and fortunes of friends and intimates. Hence, peoples who have reached this point of premeditated malice, when they receive this last remedy and are stunned and brutalized, are sensible no longer of comforts, delicacies, pleasures and pomp, but only of the sheer necessities of life. (NS)

- only barbarians are capable of rejuvenating a world laboring under the death throes of an unnerved civilization (NOB)

For a long period of time the impious races of the children of Noah, having lapsed into a state of bestiality, went wandering like wild beasts until they were scattered and dispersed through the great forest of the earth; and with their bestial education giants had sprung up and existed among them at the time when the heavens thundered for the first time after the flood.    (NS)



That frightful thought of some divinity which imposed form and measure on their bestial passions of these lost men and thus transformed them into human passions. - The giants, enchained under the mountains by the frightful religion of the thunderbolts, learned to check their bestial habit of wandering wild through the great forest of the earth, and acquired the contrary habit of remaining hidden and settled in their fields. - restraining also their bestial lust from finding its satisfaction in the sight of heaven, of which they had mortal terror.  So it came about that each of them would drag one woman into his cave and keep her there in  perpetual company for the duration of their lives.    (NS)

Violent eruption, vulcanism; the patient becomes violent as he wakes up. The madness of the millennia breaks out; madness is, Dionysus is violence.                                            (NOB)

Brown quotes Carlyle on the Koran: 'as toilsome reading as I ever undertook. A wearisome confused jumble, crude, incondite; endless iterations, long-windedness, entanglement; most crude, incondite; — insupportable stupidity, in short! Nothing but a sense of duty could carry any European through the Koran . . . It is the confused ferment of a great rude human soul; rude, untutored, that cannot even read.'                                           (NOB)

Stretch yourself, to the breaking point. It is not true unless it hurts; the evidence is martyrdom. Carrying the thought through to the end. - Extremism. Truth is not in safety or in the middle. - Aphorism is exaggeration, or grotesque; in psychoanalysis nothing is true except the exaggerations; and in poetry. - extravagant language; the road of excess which lead to the palace of wisdom (visionary seer Blake) – not to count the cost. Go for broke. Aphorism is recklessness; it goes to far. Intellect is courage; the courage to risk its own life; to play with madness. - Only the exaggerations are true. - Broken flesh, broken mind, broken speech. Aphorism, or symbolism, as in Finnegans Wake                                            (NOB)

'Whereas psychoanalysts view schizophrenics as trapped in private symbolic worlds they cannot distinguish from what we call reality, Brown regards schizophrenic thought as liberated from false boundaries between mental and physical categories.' The crucified body, the crucified mind. The norm is not normality but schizophrenia, the split, broken, crucified mind. "If we throw a crystal to the ground, it breaks, but it does not break haphazard but in accordance with line of cleavage it falls into fragments, where limits were already determined by the structure of the crystal, although they were invisible. Psychotics are fissured and splintered structures such as these. We cannot deny them a measure of that awe with which madmen were regarded by the people of ancient times." Split the stick and there is Jesus.                      (NOB)

It is not schizophrenia but normality that is split-minded; in schizophrenia the false boundaries are disintegrating. . . . . Schizophrenics are suffering from the truth. . . . Schizophrenic thought is "adualistic"; lack of ego-boundaries makes it impossible to set limits to the process of identification with the environment. The schizophrenic world is one of mystical participation; an "indescribable extension of inner sense"; "uncanny feelings of reference"; occult psychosomatic influences and powers; currents of electricity, or sexual attraction—action at a distance. . . . A Magnetic field of action at a distance; or a magical field . . . action at a distance, the center of Freud's interest in the “Occult.” Dionysus, the mad god, breaks down the boundaries; releases the prisoners; abolishes repression; and abolishes the principium individuationis, substituting for it the unity of man and the unity of man with nature. In this age of schizophrenia, with the atom, the individual self, the boundaries disintegrating, there is, for those who would save our souls, the ego-psychologists, "the Problem of Identity." But the breakdown is to be made into a breakthrough; as Conrad said, in the destructive element immerse. The soul that we can call our own is not a real one. The solution to the problem of identity is, get lost. Or, as it says in the New Testament: "He that findeth his own psyche shall lose it, and he that loseth his psyche for my sake shall find it."                     (NOB)

Erect is the shape of the genitally organized body; the body crucified, the body dead or asleep; the stiff. The shape of the body awake, the shape of the resurrected body, is not vertical but perverse and polymorphous; not a straight line but a circle      (NOB)

schizophrenia as a return to egoless perfection, to a state of undifferentiatedness, ...
Primary narcissism is egoless.                                           (NOB)

Symbolism is on the track of a former identity, a lost unity. - - The tendency of the sexual instinct is to restore an earlier state of things, an earlier state of unity. - - Union and unification is of bodies, not souls. The erotic sense of reality unmasks the soul, the personality, the ego; because soul, personality and ego are what distinguish and separate us; they make us individuals, arrived at by dividing till you can divide no more—atoms. But psychic individuals, separate, unfissionable on the inside, impenetrable on the outside, are, like physical atoms, an illusion; in the twentieth century, in this age of fission, we can split the individual even as we can split the atom. Souls, personalities, and egos are masks, spectres, concealing our unity as body. For it as one biological species that mankind is one—the ’species essence’ that Karl Marx looked for; so that to become conscious of ourselves as body is to become conscious of mankind as one. . . .
It is the erotic sense of reality that discovers the inadequacy of fraternity, or brotherhood. It is not adequateas a form of reunification of the human race. We must either be far more deeply unified or not at all. The true form of unification which can be found either in psychoanalysis or in Christianity, in Freud or Pope or Karl Marx – is – we are all members of one body.
"The patient connects herself with everybody."
"You and I, are we not the same? . . . Sometimes I cannot tell myself ...” - -
The unification of the human race: a mental fight, a struggle in and about men's minds. The rents, the tears, splits and divisions are mindmade; they are not based on the truth but on what the Buddhists call illusion, what Freud calls unconscious fantasies. The prevailing sense of reality, the prevailing forms of knowledge, are ruled by the instinct of aggression and division, are under the dominion of the death instinct. We are in Satan's kingdom; to build a Heaven in Hell's despite is to construct an erotic sense of reality. - -
We are all fractions. We are broken
When the infant realizes his separation from the mother in the oral stage of sexuality, he denies separation (and thus external reality) and begins to invest in a dream of regainable pleasurable union. Negation of the external is an act of the death "instinct".
The reunification of Life and Death - accepting for a moment Freud's equation of Death and Nirvana – can only be envisioned as the end of the historical process                                            (NOB)

The gods return in thunder. FINNEGAN'S WAKE is thunder (NOB)

Civilization originates in stammering, the builder is a stutterer: Balbus babbles; Balbus builder of the Tower of Babel. The thunder is God stuttering: to speak broken heaventalk.           (NOB)

Ritual clowns in primitive religion violate taboos and thereby acquire magical power. 'You shall regard nothing as sacred.' Other traits of ritual clowns are 'reverse behavior' and 'backward speech.'

The reality of our life, the reality of which we are ignorant, the reality which we do not want to accept, is our fluid membership and causal interdependence in the intercommunicating world of bodies.                                (NOB)

The unconscious, then, is not a closet full of skeletons in the private house of the individual mind; it is not even, finally a cave full of dreams and ghosts in which, like Plato's prisoners, most of us spend most of our lives -
The unconscious is that immortal sea which brought us hither; intimations of which are given in moments of 'oceanic feeling'; one sea of energy or instinct, embracing all mankind, without distinction of race, language, or culture; and embracing all the generations of Adam, past, present, and future, in one phylogenetic heritage, in one mystical body.                                           (NOB)

Human culture is a set of projections of the repressed unconscious - to project the infantile complexes into concrete reality.                                           (NOB)

The fund of personality, the fund of soul-stuff available, is fixed and collective. The only soul is the group-soul, and this consists of nothing but group functions - - Personality is not innate, but acquired. Like a mask, it is a thing, a fetish, a fetishistic object or commodity - - - a person never owns his own person, but always represents another, by whom he is possessed. And the other that one is, is always ancestors; one’s soul is not one’s own, but Daddy’s                                           (NOB)

The psychic state of symbiosis revolves around the longing for “oneness.” Under the spell of symbiotic fantasy, distinctions between self and Other blur. Norman O. Brown suggests that the primal act of the human ego is a negative one—“not to accept reality, specifically the separation of the child's body from the mother's body.” Symbiotic fantasy functions to deny separateness. Instead of conceiving of oneself as a singularity, one imagines that one is contained within an “omnipotent system—a dual unity within one common boundary.”                                           (NOB)

The fall is into language.... And overcoming the consequences of the fall is speaking with tongues. ... a second fall into the second innocence; verbum infans, the infant or ineffable word. . .

There is an era in which the god himself assists the universe on its way and helps it in its rotation. There is also an era in which he releases his control. Thereupon it begins to revolve in a contrary direction under its own impulse. At last, this cosmic era draws to its close, disorder comes to a head. The few good things the universe produces are polluted with so great a taint of evil that it hovers on the very brink of destruction, both it and the creatures in it. Therefore at that very moment the god who first set it in order looks down upon on it again. Beholding it in trouble, and anxious lest racked by storms and confusion it suffer in dissolution, he takes control of the helm once more. - Plato                                             (NOB)

Ritual clowns in primitive religion violate taboos and thereby acquire magical power. 'You shall regard nothing as sacred.' Other traits of ritual clowns are 'reverse behavior' and 'backward speech.'

I sometimes think I see that civilizations originate in the disclosure of some mystery, some secret; and expand with the progressive publication of their secret; and end in exhaustion when there is no longer any secret, when the mystery has been divulged, that is to say, profaned. And so there comes a time -- I believe we are in such a time, when civilization has to be renewed by the discovery of new mysteries, by the undemocratic but sovereign power of the imagination, by the undemocratic power which makes poets the unacknowledged legislators of mankind, the power which makes all things new.
The power which makes all things new is magic. What our time needs is mystery; What our time needs is magic          (NOB)

To rise from history to mystery is to experience the resurrection of the body here now, as an eternal reality; to experience the parousia, the presence in the present, which is the spirit; to experience the reincarnation of the incarnation, the second coming, which is his coming in us.                                                                                               (NOB)

Psychoanalysis is that revolving state which completes this revolution, disclosing the bedroom and the bathroom behind the bourgeois facade, disclosing the obscenity of the on-stage scene, abolishing the reality-principle and its unreal distinction between private and public, between head and genital.                            (NOB)

To seduce the world to madness                           (NOB)

The woman penetrated is a labyrinth. You emerge into another world inside a woman. The penis is the bridge; the passage to another world is coitus; the other world is a womb cave - and the cave in which coitus takes place is the grave - death is coitus and coitus is death. Death is genitalized as a return to the womb; incestuous coitus. - The staff that cleaves the waters is the dead man's body; the corpse; the stiff that ejaculates the soul or semen is the penis. Penis or corpse, stiff as stone; a perpetual erection, or monument.                                           (NOB)

It is not that children, neurotics, and primitives are so stupid as to be unable to discriminate between words and things; it is that they not are so repressed as to be unaware that personality is a social fiction, a name a magical invocation of a particular role in the social drama.                                           (NOB)

Psychoanalysis shows the sexual organization of the body physical to be a political organization; the body is a body politic…'genital organization'...a political arrangement arrived at after stormy upheavals in the house of Oedipus…a well-organized tyranny.                                           (NOB)

Literal meanings as against spiritual or symbolic interpretation, a matter of Life against Death. The return to symbolism, the rediscovery that everything is symbolic - - all metaphors are sexual, a penis in every convex object and a vagina in every concave one - - is psychoanalysis.

The real meaning of technology is its hidden relation to the human body; a symbolical or mystical relation.                                            (NOB)

In Ferenczi's apocalyptic theory of genitality the sexual act is a historical drama, a symbolic reenactment or recapitulation of all the great traumas in the history of the individual, of the species, of life itself. Psychoanalytic time is not gradual, evolutionary, but is discontinuous, catastrophic, revolutionary. The sexual act is a return to the womb. - The 'uterine regressive trend in the sex act' is an aspect of the universal goal of all organic life - - to return to the lifeless condition out of which life arose. 'The goal of all life is death.' In this philosophy and the main stages of biological evolution (sexual differentiation, adaptation to dry land) are catastrophes excited by external forces: these catastrophes create 'tension'; and the aim of life (or of evolutionary adaptation) is to get rid of the tension, and so die. Life is a temporary (accidental) disturbance in a lifeless (and thus peaceful) universe. It is best, then, never to have been born, and second best, quickly to die. Nirvana is release from the cycle of rebirth. The real death is the death we are dead with here and now.                                           (NOB)

To idealize is to idolize; to make an idol; to translate into a fixed image for contemplation; to turn into monumental form; to turn into stone. To concentrate on seeing is to turn into stone; Medusa's head; castration.                                           (NOB)

Politically we are endlessly docile. We lust after authority. Toward authority we are infantile-dependent. We foist off our responsibility on others: our vicars act vicariously in our places, and the presidency can be turned into a virtual dictatorship just under our lethargic gazes. The parallel is with a child's-eye view of the primal scene, the parents in coitus, and the effect of the primal scene is castration. We become voyeurs rather than participators. Genital organization rather than polymorphous perversity.                                           (NOB)

Above and behind them a fire is blazing at a distance, and between the fire and the prisoners there is a raised way; and you will see, if you look, a low wall built along the way, like the screen which marionette players have in front of them, over which they show the puppets.'                                            (NOB)

The apocalypse lays bare the mystery of kingship; stripping off the Emperor's New Clothes, to reveal the harlot. Kingship is fornication – the identity of politics and sex. In the apocalypse the walls do fall; the walls separating inside and outside; public and private; body physical and metaphysical. The identification of sex and politics; as in psychoanalysis.                                           (NOB)

Brown paraphrases, 'In the Apocalypse the chief thing to be unveiled is the great whore, Babylon, the great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth. Babylon is a whore; she it is with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication. The mother of harlots is the mother of kings. In the Apocalypse, pomp, power, and politics is discovered to be sex. Perverted sex, sado-masochistic sex, striving for impossible satisfaction; the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication, and she is drunken with the blood of the saints. Perverted sex; Satanic mills and looms.          (NOB)

Brown quotes, 'An I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood and fire and the vapor of smoke; the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall turn into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.'           (NOB)

Psychoanalysis stands or falls on the expansion on the idea of sexuality to comprehend the entire life of the human body; attributing a sexual ('erotogenic') action to all parts, organs, or 'zones'; or rather, envisaging sexuality as an energy diffused throughout the whole body, and capable of displacement from one part to another, and of transformation from one mode of manifestation to another (polymorphism; metamorphosis).                                           (NOB)

Amidst riches we are poor, precisely because we have made fetishes of our commodities and emptied or ejaculated ourselves into them.                                           (NOB)

The natural man is self-centered or egocentric; everything he regards as real he also regards as outside himself; everything he takes 'in' immediately become unreal and 'spectral.' He tries to become an armored crustacean alert for attack or defense; the price of selfishness is eternal vigilance. This kind of Argus-eyed tenseness proceeds from the sealed prison of consciousness which visionary seer Blake calls 'opaque.'                                           (NOB)

Definitions are boundaries; schizophrenics pass beyond the reality-principle into a world of symbolic connections: 'all things lost their definite boundaries, became iridescent with many-colored significances.' Schizophrenics pass beyond ordinary language (the language of the reality-principle) into a truer more symbolic language.                                           (NOB)

To overcome dualism would be to awake out of sleep; to arise from the dead.                                           (NOB)

The mad truth The proper outcome of psychoanalysis is the abolition of the boundary, the healing of the split, the integration of the human race.                                           (NOB)

Psychoanalysis ends in the recognition of the reality-principle as Lucifer, the prince of darkness, the prince of this world, the governing principle, the ruler of the darkness of this world. The reality-principle is the prince of darkness; it's function is to scotomize, to spread darkness; to make walls of thick darkness, walls of separation and concealment. - The reality-principle is an unreal boundary drawn between real and imaginary.                                           (NOB)

“Animism, magic and the omnipotence of thought” - the child, the savage and the neurotic are right. (Quoting visionary seer Blake) 'Mental things alone are real.' The real world, which is not the world of the reality-principle, is the world where thoughts are omnipotent, where there is no distinction between wish and deed. - the unconscious is the true psychic reality.                                           (NOB)

A reticent style; elliptical expression; that hearing they may hear and not understand. The meaning is not in the words but between the words, in the silence; forever beyond the reach, the rape of literal-minded explication; forever inviolate, forever new; the still unravished bride of quietness.                                           (NOB)

To restore to words their full significance, as in dreams, as in 'Finnegans Wake' is to reduce them to nonsense, to get the nonsense or nothingness or silence back into words; to transcend the antimony of sense and nonsense, silence and speech. It is a destruction of ordinary language; playing with fire, or madness; or speaking with tongues.                                           (NOB)

The word is made flesh. To recover the world of silence, of symbolism, is to recover the human body. . . . . What is always speaking silently is the body. It cannot be put into words because it does not consist of things. Literal words always define properties. Beyond the reality-principle [which is an unreal boundary drawn between real and imaginary] and reification, is silence, the flesh. “A subterranean passage between mind and body underlies all analogy.” The true meaning of words are bodily meanings, carnal knowledge; and the bodily meanings are always unspoken meanings. What is always speaking silently is the body. - The unspoken meaning is always sexual. Of sexuality we can only have symbolical knowledge, because sexual is carnal.                                           (NOB)

Coitus is fallen, unconscious fallen poetry; the sexual organizations are metaphors; a play or interplay of organs (Ferenczi's amphimixis)a play upon meanings; a play upon words.                                           (NOB)

In orgasm, all the splendor and misery of representative government. The representative organism acts on behalf of the entire organism: “There is no part of the organism which is not represented in the genital, so that the genital in the role of executive manager, as it were, provides for the discharge of sexual tension on behalf of the entire organism.” (Ferenczi)                                           (NOB)

The ego is loquacity, the interior monologue, the soliloquy which isolates. The way of silence leads to the extinction of the ego, mortification. To become empty; to become nothing; to become free of the restrictions of the self, to have no self, to be of no mind, to be a dead man.                                           (NOB)

In the resurrection, in the life after death, life still has one foot in the grave, and word remain wedded to the silence. The rest is silence; after the Last Judgment, the silence. The spermatic word. The sower seweth the word. In the beginning was the word, in the beginning was the deed; in the resurrection, in the awakening; these two are one: poetry. - The antimony between mind and body, word and deed, speech and silence, overcome. There is only metaphor; there is only poetry.
'Hereby the duality, the discrepancy between mind and body, mundane form and supramundane formlessness, is annihilated. Then the body of the Enlightened One becomes luminous in appearance, convincing and inspiring by its mere presence, while every word and every gesture, and even his silence communicate the overwhelming reality of the Dharma. It is not the audible word through which people are converted and transformed in their innermost being, but through that which goes beyond words and flows directly from the presence of the saint; the inaudible mantric sound which emanates from his heart. Therefore, the perfect saint is called 'Muni', the 'Silent One.'                                           (NOB)

Politics as gang bang. The game is juvenile or, as Freud would say, infantile and deadly serious.                                             (NOB)

A king is erected, rex erectus est. A king is an erection of the body politic. - - The exhibitionism of the phallic personality (the huge genital, the royal lingam) is fraudulent; an imposture, or imposition on the public; theater. The actor needs the audience to reassure him he is not castrated: yes, you are the mighty penis; the Emperor’s New Clothes. To force the audience to give this reassurance is to castrate, have coitus with, the audience: the phallic personality needs a receptive audience or womb. Separately, both actor and audience are incomplete, castrated; but together they make up a whole. - - Action is what takes place in front of the camera, with the lights turned on, to throw the rest of reality into darkness…Those for whom not to be seen is nonexistence are not alive; and the kind of existence they seek, the immortality they seek, is spectral; to be seen is the ambition of ghosts, and to be remembered the ambition of the dead. The public realm is the stage for heroic action, and heroes are specters of the living dead. - - The reality principle is the importance principle, which commands us to be fooled by appearances, to respect the Emperor’s New Clothes - -                                                               (NOB)

The spectator whose participation is restricted to seeing, who is passive, is held in passivity by what he sees; he is spellbound or hypnotized. - Psychologists define hypnosis as the filling of the field of attention by one sense only. - Like the spectators in the traditional theater (or in front of the TV), as perceived by Brecht: “They sit together like men who are asleep but have unquiet dreams. True, they have their eyes open. But they don't watch, they stare. They don't hear, hey are transfixed. They look at the stage as if bewitched. - The power of the hypnotist is of the same nature as the mana or majesty of kings. - The primal scene is the original theater, parental coitus is the archetypal show; the original distance is between parent and child. “Theaters and concerts, in fact any performance where there is something to be seen or heard, always stands for parental coitus.” It is in the primal scene that we learn to take vicarious pleasure in events of which we are only passive spectators. - With the pleasure of ideal participation and the prohibition of actual participation: shadows without substance; fantasies without reality; dreams; onanistic gratification - a eunuch in the harem. The actor is exhibitionist. To shew is to show the genital; to fascinate; to make the spectator a woman. Even as the hard look or phallic eye of the hypnotist (a Cyclopean erection) transfixes his subject.                                            (NOB)

Orthodox psychoanalysis warns against the resexualization of thought and speech; orthodox psychoanalysis bows down before the reality-principle. The reality-principle is based on desexualization; in symbolic consciousness thought and speech become resexualized. . . . When our eyes are opened to symbolic meaning, our only refuge is loss of shame, polymorphous perversity, pansexualism. . . . As in Tantric Yoga, in which any sexual act may become a form of mystic meditation, and any mystic state may be interpreted sexually.                                            (NOB)

There is a particular need for psychoanalysis, as a part of the psychoanalysis of psychoanalysis, to become conscious of the dialectical, poetical, mystical stream that runs in its blood.                                            (NOB)

There is a marriage (in heaven) between psychoanalysis and the mystical tradition, combining to make us conscious of our unconscious participation in the creation of the phenomenal world. - To become conscious of our participation in the creation of the phenomenal world is to pass from passive experience – perception as impressions on a passive mind – to conscious creation, and creative freedom. Every perception is a creation - “when we see physical objects we are makers or poets.” Or gods; the world is our creation.                                            (NOB)

Psychoanalysis can be used to uncover the principle of union, or communion, buried beneath the surface separations, the surface declarations of independence, the surface signs of private property. Psychoanalysis also discloses the pathology of the process whereby the normal sense of being a self separate from the external world was constructed. Contrary to what is taken for granted in the lunatic state called normality or common sense, the distinction between the self and the external world is not an immutable fact, but an artificial construction. It is a boundary line; like all boundaries not natural but conventional. . . .                                            (NOB)

Separateness (on the outside) is repression (on the inside). Separateness, then, is the fall - the fall into division, the original lie. . . . The fall is into language.                                            (NOB)

Fusion, mystical participation. Primitive animism is suffused with the unconscious identification of subject and object: participation mystique. Civilized objectivity in non-participating consciousness, consciousness as separation, as dualism, distance, definition; as property and prison: consciousness ruled by negation, which is from the death instinct. Symbolical consciousness, the erotic sense of reality, is a return to the principle of ancient animistic science, mystical participation, but now for the first time freely; instead of religion, poetry.                                            (NOB)

Symbolism is polymorphous perversity, the translation of all our senses into one another, the interplay between the senses, the metaphor, the free translation. The separation of the senses, their mutual isolation, is sensuality, is sexual organization, is bondage to the tyranny of one partial impulse, leading to the absolute and exclusive concentration of the life of the body in the representative [that is, divided] person.                                            (NOB)

Originally everything was body, ONE BODY (Novalis). . . .'Man is the dwarf of himself. Once he was permeated and dissolved by spirit. He filled nature with his overflowing currents. Out from him sprang the sun and moon; from man, the sun; from woman, the moon. The laws of his mind, the periods of his actions externalized themselves into day and night, into the year and the seasons. But, having made for himself this huge shell, his waters retired; he no longer fills the veins and veinlets; he is shrunk to a drop. He sees, that the structure still fits him, but fits him colossally. Say, rather, once it fitted him, now it corresponds to him from far and on high. . . . is disunited with himself . . . is a god in ruins.) (Pythagorean mysticism - Harmony of the World Sacred Geometry - quoting Emerson).                                            (NOB)

Then cometh the end, when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. Mere anarchy is loosed on the world                                (NOB)

Dismembered, remembered. Symbolism is not the apprehension of another world of archetypes, but the transfiguration of this world; and the transfiguration of this world is its reunification. Symbolism, says Freud, is the vestige or signpost of a former (a prehistoric) identity.(NOB)

The event remains trivial for those who do not have eyes to see. And so God remains hidden; or rather an open secret. And everything is told in parables, that seeing the may not perceive. The mystery of meaning remains forever inviolate; there is no literal truth. Truth riding on a donkey; as foolishness. He hath no form or comliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beuty that we should desire him. - Infinity in a grain of sand. - To see symbolism is to see a humiliated God. To break with the power-principle. Christ must suffer.                                (NOB)

'If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear as it is – infinite.'           (NOB quoting visionary seer Blake).

Brown (quoting Ferenczi's 'Thalassa'): 'The purpose of the sex act can be none other than an attempt to return to the mother's womb.'                                            (NOB)

Coitus successfully performed is incest, a return to the maternal womb; and the punishment appropriate to this crime is castration. What happens to the penis is coronation, followed by decapitation.                                            (NOB)

The first act of the individual is incest with his mother.                                            (NOB)

The spectator is voyeur. The desire to see is the desire to see the genital; and the desire to see is the desire to be one; to become what you behold; to incorporate the penis of another is the desire to devour it through the eye.                                                      (NOB)

Exhibitionism is a denial of castration; it says see I do have a penis. - The monumental immobility of the stone phallus is a recapitulation of the primal scene. - There was one person, who, as Freud has also noted, actually rigid during this scene: the child who witnessed it. So to be 'turned to stone' by the sight of something means to be fascinated by it. The child is stiff – but the rigidity is also the erection of his penis. The child is petrified.                                                      (NOB)

His Royal Highness; his whole body a penis, erect; his whole person a sublimation of the male member; the erection is in the head.                                            (NOB)

Genital on a crosstree; the Christmas tree or Christ mast – what is lifted up is the serpent, the phallus. “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so the Son of Man must be lifted up.”                                            (NOB)

The way of silence is not only death but incest. Paracelsus says, “He who enters the Kingdom of God must first enter his mother and die.”                                            (NOB)

In orgasm, all the splendor and misery of representative government. The representative organ act on behalf of the entire organism. "There is no part of the organism that is not represented in the genital, so that the genital in the role of executive manager, as it were provides for the discharge of sexual tension on behalf of the entire organism." (quoting Ferenczi – 'Thalassa').                                            (NOB)

Not just mythology but the entirety of culture is a projection onto the outer world. In the words of Spender, “The world which we create—the world of slums and telegrams and newspapers—is a kind of language of our inner wishes and thoughts.”                                            (NOB)

Novalis asserted the notion that the world is the creation of the magic power of fantasy.                                            (NOB)

Brown's attitude to megalithic monuments: The ambition of civilized man is revealed in the pyramid—the achievement of the first modern individualists. In the pyramid repose both the hope of immortality and the fruit of compound interest. As Heichelheim showed, the Iron Age, at the end of which we live, democratized the achievements of the Bronze Age (cities, metals, money, writing) and opened up the pursuit of kings (money and immortality) to the average citizen. But the inevitable irony redresses the balance in favor of death. Death is overcome on condition that the real actuality of life pass into these immortal and dead things; money is the man; the immortality of an estate or a corporation resides in the dead things which alone endure. Civilized economic activity has this death-defying and deadening structure because economic activity is sustained by psychic energy taking the form of sublimation. All civilized desublimation, and not only the pursuit of money, has this structure.                                            (NOB)


The pyramid, with its winding corridors and labyrinthine galleries inside, is an artificial cave; the ziggurat artificial or architectural mountain with spiral stairs on the outside. The megalithic maze at Stonehenge or Carnac is an alternative embodiment architectural embodiment of the same idea. The palace is a labyrinth – The palace was the nucleus of the city.                                           (NOB)

Geography is the geography of the mother's body – geography or geometry as in Finnegans Wake. - The world a cave for Melanie Klein's infants.                                           (NOB)

Indians are – the lost sheep we came to find; now unappeased ghosts in the unconscious of the white man.                                            (NOB)

There is an unconscious hostility between the sexes; “an archaic reaction of enmity”; taboos which prescribe sexual separation, mutual avoidance; the castration complex. Without an understanding of the seamy side of sexuality there is no understanding of politics.                                            (NOB)

Our representative keeps us hypnotized.                                            (NOB)

The effect of the primal scene is to paralyze the spectator, even as the hypnotist's subject is paralyzed; the effect of the primal scene is castration. The great whore is to be stripped. Her name is mystery.                                            (NOB)

unconscious knowledge about sexual intercourse between parents attributed by psychoanalysis to babes in arms. “The world of thought at those levels is quite alien to our own.” (quoting Melanie Klein). (We Space Aliens are babies in the bodies of men - the Radically Alien OTHERNESS/ALTERITY of babies/childhood)                                            (NOB)

Annunciations, messages, messengers, angels, having intercourse with the daughters of men, making pregnant through the ear; angels or birds, winged words or doves of the spirit. The flying bird or angel is an erection or winged phallus. - A supernatural pregnancy: “A being, be it man or woman, who has the Holy Ghost within him is pregnant or full of semen and in ejaculating words of prophesy the wizard either ejaculates semen or gives birth to a child.                                            (NOB)

The root of testimony is testicle: - the witness that stands up in the court to testify is denying castration; the testimony is false testicles; and civilization is lie.                                            (NOB)

What the child knows consciously, and the adult unconsciously is that we are nothing but body.          (NOB)

”What we fail to recognize is that all symptoms, defense mechanisms, in fact, personality itself, are forms of magic – Primitives have magic in a conscious form, whereas with us can function only (except in certain forms of neurosis or psychosis) if it is unconscious.” (quoting Roheim). The insane are closer to the truth.                                            (NOB)

Mankind today is still making history without having any conscious idea of what it really wants or under what conditions it would stop being unhappy: in fact what it is doing seems to be making itself more unhappy and calling that unhappiness progress.     (NOB)

Brown's critique, 'The first was that Christian theology, in an attempt to account for human discontent, 'the divine discontent', attempts to take humankind out of the real world, out of the animal kingdom, and seduce it with 'delusions of grandeur.' It thus becomes guilty of its own worst sin, the sin of pride.
The second was that the way to deal with death, Thanatos, is not to seek a life after death, but to seek a full life before death. In Brown's view of life and history, the resurrection of the body must occur before death, not after it. The way to deal with death is to make sure that when it comes, there are 'no unlived lives in the human body.'     (NOB)

The human body is not a thing or substance, given, but a continuous creation. The human body is an energy system which is never a complete structure; never static; is in perpetual inner self-construction and self-destruction; we destroy in order to make it new     (NOB)

The money complex (Marx's cash nexus)is the demonic, and the demonic is God's ape; the money complex is therefore the heir to and substitute for the religious complex, an attempt to find God in things     (NOB)

'Locke sank into a swoon;
The Garden died;
God took the spinning-jenny
Out of his side.'                                            (NOB)

Upside down. Not the reality-principle but surrealism. Surrealism, a systematic illumination of the hidden places and progressive darkening of the rest; a perpetual promenade right in the forbidden zone. Go down and stay down, in the forbidden zone; a descent into hell. - The Pentecostal darkness; the sun shall be turned to darkness.                                (NOB)

The goal of life, in Rilke's phrase, is to live out all the "unlived lives in the body. Also, Brown takes 'examples of the risen (resurrected – it comes up) body from the mystical tradition of Jakob Boehme, the 'body electric' of poet Whitman or the 'greater life of the body' of Lawrence.'                                 (NOB)

Brown quotes Peter Pan, 'Do you believe in angels?'                                 (NOB)

Sado-maschochism is an endless, a vicious cycle; in which subject and object are confused; active and passive, male and female roles are exchanged, in the desire and pursuit of the whole, the combined object.                                 (NOB)

For Brown, the Buddhist seeks 'The awakening to eternal life; free from the cycle of rebirth; satori, the experience of the unborn.'                                 (NOB)

'Lowest basemeant in hystry!'

As Brown's mentor Freud himself said. "I can hardly tell you how many things l - a new Midas - turn into filth." Brown teaches that all human action and creativity is "excrement." 'In its famous paradox, the equation of money and excrement, psychoanalysis becomes the first science to state what common sense and the poets have long known - that the essence of money is in its absolute worthlessness.' 'property is not simply transferred from feces to money; on the contrary, money is feces, because the anal eroticism continues in the unconscious.' (money is poop). 'Money has become our excrement.'                                 (NOB)

'Dionysus calls us outdoors. Rise up, my fair one, and come away.' (Take my hand, milady). Brown quotes the Bible, 'The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.' The first tabernacle is Jerusalem, the second tabernacle the universal Church; the third tabernacle the open sky. “Only when a clear sky looks down through broken ceilings will my heart turn again to the places of God.” (the ruins of cities).                      (NOB)

'Home all go. Halome ( = hello home).'                     (NOB)

Brown quotes the Book of Enoch.“He will open the chamber of waters which are above the heavens, and of the fountains which are beneath the earth. And all the waters shall be joined with the waters: that which is above the heavens is the masculine, and the water which is beneath the earth is the feminine. And they shall destroy all who dwell on the earth and those who dwell under the ends of the heaven.”                     (NOB)

The uterine regressive trend-Ferenczi's thalassal regressive trend-is the same thing thing as genital organization. For those not yet born, their whole person is in the womb. - We have not yet been born; we are still in the womb; asleep; we are such stuff as dreams are made on. Life begins with a fall; a falling into the womb; a fall into sleep. Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. Adam's fall is Adam's fall into sleep; or Osiris' descent into the underworld. - To be born is to die, and life is really death-in-life. - The hour of their birth is the hour of their death (Brown quoting Hegel). - The conclusion of the whole matter-Blake: “We are in the world of Generation and death, and this world we must cast off.” The sleep of Ulro; the passage through Eternal Death; the awakening to Eternal Life. And then we shall see that Generation is not the reality but a shadow of the reality; Generation is only an image of Regeneration. The real birth would be the birth from womb of the dream world. The real death is the death we are dead with here and now. Real life can only be life after death, or resurrection; life whose goal is death, and whose pattern is the repetition-compulsion; karma. (Nomads = Angels awaiting Resurrection Day)                     (NOB)

To make the tree speak. I am leafy speaking. The oracular tree or tree of dreams. The sylvan historian, telling a leaf-fringed legend. The silva or garden of verses. These trees shall be my book. Even Jung also said he felt 'mingled with the leaves and the trees.'                    (NOB)

The Dragon red and hidden Harlot which John in Patmos saw (quoting Blake)                     (NOB)

The fratricide which killed the Roman Republic (the fate of all Republics) was only the final fulfillment of the symbolic and attenuated fratricide which had been its life. Roman liberty-the fraternity carved out of the cadaver of royal despotism-is despotism forever divided and at war with itself. -eternally locked in battle - “They fight in the sky for the nation,” aerial combats of witches or air forces.                     (NOB)

There are always only two brothers: Romulus and Remus, Cain and Abel. Roman history is the story of the brothers Romulus and Remus, the sons of the she-wolf; leaders of gangs of juvenile delinquents . . . The foundation of the fraternity or state is itself a crime, or rather the primal crime. The brothers club together in a criminal.   . . conspiracy: "society was now based on complicity in the common crime." Freud says that the sense of guilt can be allayed only by the solidarity of the participants. Actually, it is the common crime that creates the solidarity. But the brothers also fall out, and thus we are reminded of the other brothers Cain and Abel.                     (NOB)

Brotherhood is an agonal relation between brothers. - The old agonal warfare was between brothers; conducted according to rules; limited in objectives, and limited in time, in a necessary alternation of peace in order to fight another day. The new warfare is total (Winner Take All): it seeks an end to warfare, an end to brotherhood.                     (NOB)

The quarrel is over the paternal inheritance. - fraternal organization covertly assumes a father. Liberty, equality: it is all a dispute over inheritance the paternal estate. Locke makes all men son of the Heavenly Father. The phantom of fatherhood is banished from the earth and elevated to the skies. - Thus the defense of sonship turns into the discovery of another father, the “real” father: and the real question in politics is Jesus' question, Who is my father? - The dispute between fathers and sons is over property. - It finally turns out that the property Locke undertook to defend own nothing: it all belongs to the Heavenly Father.

To eat and to be eaten. The grain must be ground, the wine pressed; the bread must be broken. The true body is a broken body. Nothing can be sole or whole That has not been rent.            (NOB)

The reality of the body is not to be given, but to be made real, to be realized; the body is to be built not with hands but by the spirit. It is the poetic body; the made body; Man makes Himself, his own body, in the symbolic freedom of the imagination. “The Eternal Body of Man is the imagination, that is God himself, the Divine Body."          (NOB)

To make in ourselves a new consciousness, an erotic sense of reality, is to become conscious of symbolism. Symbolism is mind making connections (correspondences) rather than distinctions (separations). Symbol-ism makes conscious interconnections and unions that were unconscious and repressed. Freud says, symbolism is on the track of a former identity, a lost unity: the lost continent, Atlantis, underneath the sea of life in which we live enisled; or perhaps even our union with the sea (Thalassa); oceanic consciousness; the unity of the whole cosmos as one living creature, as Plato said in the Timaeus.            (NOB)

There is another kind of Protestantism possible; a Dionysian Christianity; in which the scripture is a dead letter to be made alive by spiritual (symbolical) interpretations; in which the meaning is not fixed, but ever new and ever changing in a continuous revelation; by fresh outpouring of the holy spirit. Meaning is made in a meeting between the holy spirit buried in the Christian and the holy spirit buried under the letter of scripture; a breakthrough, from the Abgrund, from the unconscious of the reader past the conscious intention of the author to the unconscious meaning; breaking the barrier of the ego and the barrier of the book.            (NOB)

When the problem in psychoanalysis becomes not repression, but symbolism; when we discover that even if there were no dream-censor we should still have symbolism; then personality (soul, ego) becomes not substance, but fiction, representation; and the primal form of politics becomes not domination (repression), but representation.           (NOB)

The Blakean vision of the body as mutable, contingent upon the imagination as that which overcomes boundaries. His “symbol" is the schizophrenic. the world is a veil we spin to hide the void           (NOB)

Schizophrenic thought is “adualistic”; lack of ego-boundaries makes it impossible to set limits to the process of identification with the environment.

Literalism makes the world of abstract materialism; of dead matter; of the human body as dead matter. Literalism kills everything, including the human body. It is the spirit visionary seer Blake called Ulro, which sees nothing but rock and sand, jostling together in the void; Whitehead's Misplaced Concreteness: “Nature a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless; merely the hurrying of material , endlessly, meaninglessly.” Literalism makes a universe of stone, and men astonished, petrified. Literalism is the ministration of death , written and engraven in stones; tablets of stone and stony heart.     (NOB)

'It is one of the great romantic visions, clearly formulated by Schiller and Herder as early as 1793 and still vital in the systems of Hegel and Marx, that the history of mankind consists in a departure from a condition of undifferentiated primal unity with himself and with nature, an intermediate period in which man’s powers are developed through antagonism (alienation) with himself and nature, and a final return to unity on a higher level of harmony.'           (NOB)

'Psychoanalysis can go beyond religion and Marxism, another symptom only if it sees itself as completing what religion tries to do, namely make the unconscious conscious.'           (NOB)

'Science is a rationalized version of the magical thinking that derives from our infantile glimpse of freedom.'           (NOB)

Separation is secrecy, hiding from one another the private parts or property. Ownership is hiding; separation is repression. It is a private corporation. The right to privacy; something secret and shameful, which is one’s own. (Quoting Blake,) ‘We hide in secret. I will build thee a Labyrinth where we may remain forever alone.’ ‘The striving for the right to have secrets from which the parents are excluded is one of the most powerful factors in the formation of the ego.’ The plague of darkness is a symbol of the opaque Selfhood: (quoting Blake,)‘For while they thought they were unseen in their secret sins, they were sundered one from another by a dark curtain of forgetfulness stricken with terrible awe, and sore troubled by spectral forms.’”            (NOB)

the compulsive cycle of sexual license and puritan backlash remains a deep seated feature of American culture.            (NOB)

Backward Böhme is linked, through Paracelsus and alchemy, to the Christian gnosticism and Jewish cabalism. Forward Böhme is linked, through his influence on the Romantics Blake, Novalis, and Hegel, with Freud. Psychoanalysis is the heir to a mystical tradition which it must affirm. Böhme and Freud have too much in common to be able to dispense with each other. The heirs of Böhme are Blake, Novalis, Hegel, and Goethe. The ‘magical’ body of occidental mysticism, and the ‘diamond’ body of oriental mysticisms, and, in psychoanalysis, the polymorphously perverse body of childhood. - The Protestant mystical theolo[gian], Jacob Böhme, places man's perfection and bliss, not in a Protestant future life, but in the transformation of this bodily life into joyful play. - Psychoanalysis declares the fundamental bisexual character of human nature. Böhme insists on the androgynous character of human perfection. - Dionysus affirms the dialectical unity of the great instinctual opposites: reunifies male and female, Self and Others, life and death.            (NOB)

The science of use-value would have to be based on a science of human nature, able to distinguish real human needs from (neurotic) consumer demands . . . Money making as unnatural perversion.

True capitalism, as Marx said, is destroyed in its very foundation if we assume that its compelling motive is enjoyment instead of the accumulation of wealth. “When the accumulation of wealth is no longer of high social importance, there will be great changes in the code of morals. - Government will give way to management. Power must be open, fluid and free . . . Not to possess power but to radiate it.” (quoting Henry Miller). - Political economy becomes a science of use-values instead of exchange-values - a science of enjoyment instead of a science of accumulation.            (NOB)

Psychoanalysis is necessary in order to differentiate the new ‘purified’ animism from the old naïve animism.            (NOB)

Psychoanalysis, mysticism, poetry, the philosophy of organism, Feuerbach, and Marx – the unseen harmony is stronger than the seen. By ‘dialectical’ I mean an activity of consciousness struggling to circumvent the limitations imposed by the formal-logical law of contradiction. - Formal logic and the law of contradiction are the rules whereby the mind submits to operate under general conditions of repression. The law of contradiction does not hold in the Id. - The dream does not seem to recognize the word ‘no.’            (NOB)

There is an important connection between being ‘dialectical’ and dreaming - the ‘dialectical’ consciousness . . . a manifestation of Eros.            (NOB)

Freud takes with absolute seriousness the proposition of Jesus: ‘Except ye become as little children, ye can in no wise enter the kingdom of heaven.’            (NOB)

The foundation on which the man of the future will be built is already there, in the repressed unconscious; the foundation has to be recovered.            (NOB)

The aim of Eros is union with objects outside the self . . . [while it is at the same time] self-loving.            (NOB)

Pleasure (sex) and self-preservation (dependence upon others) – leisure and guaranteed sustenance; the antagonists which must be re-synthesized to restore childhood.            (NOB)

Human perfection consists in an expansion of the self until it enjoys the world as it enjoys itself.            (NOB)

Freud saw that in the id there is no negation, only affirmation and eternity. The instinctual reality is Dionysian drunkenness. Brown quotes Freud, ‘We can come nearer to the id with images, and call it a chaos, a cauldron of seething excitement.’            (NOB)

Hegel was able to see the dialectic of reality as ‘bacchanalian revel, in which no member is not drunk.’            (NOB)

Dionysus without the Dionysian ego threatens us with that ‘genuine witches’ brew,’ ‘that horrible mixture of sensuality and cruelty, which is the revolt of the Dionysian against the Apollonian [masculinity/rules].’ The only alternative to the witches’ brew is psychoanalytical consciousness – Dionysian consciousness.            (NOB)

'intermittences of sullemn fulminance, sollemn nuptialism, sallemn sepulture and providential divining'

As Karl Marx observed, “there is an eternal recurrence in history; events and personalities reappear, on the first occasion they appear as tragedy; on the second as farce.”                                 (NOB)

Farce is the mode of consciousness in which a people take leave of their history                                          (NOB)

An interlude of farce:
'the farced epistol to the hibruws.'                                 (NOB)

Etymology of farce: stuffing.
Pigge farced with sage.                                           (NOB)

Farce is the mode of demystification -
Farce is vulgarization.                                               (NOB)

Stoop (please stoop)
It is imperative that we sink.                                                (NOB)

'the hoax that joke bilked.'

'The jest of junk the jungular'

'Jacked up in a jock the wrapper.'

'Tis jest jibberweek's joke.'

The phallus is so closely identified with magic in Roman religion that the word fascinum meaning 'enchantment', 'witchcraft' (cf. fascinate), is one of the standard Latin terms for the phallus.                                                      (NOB)

*Boehm, Christopher, HIERARCHY IN THE FOREST: THE EVOLUTION OF EGALITARIAN BEHAVIOR. (1999) ('Small bands/tribes evolved egalitarian behavior (unlike that exhibited by other primates). With the advent of agriculture and larger societies this egalitarianism broke down and we saw the rise of governments and hierarchies which seek to keep people in line through rules, regulations, and hierarchical power rankings rather than through the egalitarianism that can still be witnessed in hunter/gatherer groups. The disposition in question is not one that orients us specifically to equality, but one that makes us resentful of being unduly subordinated, however that happens to be defined individually--or culturally. Today's human egalitarians define inappropriate domination culturally, and do so on a hair-trigger basis. Group members are not just happily equal in the absence of dominant individuals, but rather must work to collectively dominate such potential dominators. In effect, the group as a whole becomes the alpha male.' = Brown's ONE BODY.)
*__________________, MORAL ORIGINS: THE EVOLUTION OF VIRTUE, ALTRUISM, AND SHAME. (2012) ('Our moral sense is a sophisticated defense mechanism. One of the biggest risks of group living is the possibility of being punished for our misdeeds by those around us. Bullies, thieves, free-riders, and especially psychopaths—those who make it difficult for others to go about their lives—are the most likely to suffer this fate. This social type of selection singles out altruists for survival.')

Friedman, Jonathan, MODERNITIES, CLASS, AND THE CONTRADICTIONS OF GLOBALIZATION: THE ANTHROPOLOGY OF GLOBAL SYSTEMS (2008). (the contradictions of globalization and of centralization and fragmentation around the world with the massively destabililizing effect of migration including violence. He states the only anti-Globalization movement is Islamism.)


Fusco, Thomas P., BEHIND THE COSMIC VEIL: A NEW VISION OF REALITY MERGING SCIENCE, THE SPIRITUAL AND THE SUPERNATURAL (2011) ('Is there a Divine Order within the cosmos?- What are the causes behind the bizarre events known as the paranormal?- Are anti-gravity, time travel and teleportation possible- How was matter created "from the void?" - Is there a gateway to a higher dimension, and what does it look like?- Is dark matter real, and why can't we see it?- How did life originate on earth?- Could UFOs really be advanced spacecraft?' He 'uses a model based in part on a lost Biblical cosmology that has been hidden in plain view for centuries and employs a revolutionary approach to uncover the underlying cosmic matrix and foretells the coming of a future super-technology by which we will be able to create anything we can imagine.').

*Graeber, David, DEBT: THE FIRST 5,000 YEARS (2011). (Anarchist Anthropologist on the Global Debt Collapse).
I sent this to Dr. Graeber: 'I corresponded for years with Sixties New Left guru Norman O. Brown, in part progeny of the Frankfurt School, who copiously quoted anthropologists such as Roheim. In my correspondence with Zerzan (also listed on my site), I attempted to show him how he will get his anarcho-primitivist anti-Globalist agenda accomplished, which possibility you mostly seem to denigrate. I contend the undeniable global demise of the Keynesian Welfare State is the wedge for it to occur soon. The triple digit trillions owed will never to be repaid (which you seem to deal with a mite too cavalierly in 'Debt'). I'll be quoting you on such topics as the pagans, in addition to the world Debt Collapse.'

Greenham, David, NORMAN O. BROWN, HERBERT MARCUSE AND THE ROMANTIC TRADITION (2001 – Doc. diss.).

_______________, THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY: THE WORK OF NORMAN O. BROWN (2006).

Greenham dust cover of Brown with a smile somewhere between impish (fairy) and regal. Brown subconsciously signals others to stay away not because he is wrong, but because he is dangerous and carries a potentially deadly blessing/infection/possession. Brown here is a narcissistic fairy decked out in a royal costume complete with self-appropriated medals (compare with my legitimate White Armband Signs!) rising from his coffin (resurrection of the 'dead')! As Brown reminded, for Freud, resurrection signifies the stiffening and rising of the member (stiff corpse in rigor mortis=signifies erection). As he said, he's 'waiting for the new dawn.' Rise Up! On the universal dream of flying, Freud noted 'the remarkable phenomenon of erection, which constantly occupies the human fantasy, cannot fail to be impressive as an apparent suspension of the laws of gravity (cf. the winged phalli of the ancients).' (like fairies, Angels or the Superheroes who can fly away – it comes up!). Brown anticipates his springing up (Sproing!) when:

'♪ Graves all bursting saints all shouting
Heavenly beauty all around
What a hallelujah morning when the
last trump of God shall sound'

Presumably he wasn't planning instead a surprise with a literal resurrection after his death in 2002! He would have shown up again by now! The photo is eminently fitting in view of Greenham's book title.
(I commented to David Greenham that, 'I haven't read his book, because as an academic tome it's too expensive! Gotta love the dust jacket photo, costume and all! I was very unaware when I corresponded with Brown from 1973 through 1986 that Brown grew up in England. This fact changes my perspective on his work. Many aspects suddenly make sense in hindsight.' Extensive excerpts are avaible from Google Books online.) Brown says of his work, 'His producers are they not his consumers?, 'The readers of Finnegans Wake are also its writers, for the book forces them to participate actively in creating the meaning of the text. ' and “Really it is not I who am writing this crazy book. It is you, and you, and you, and that man over there, and the girl at the next table.” It is the way to the unification of the human race. 'The map of the soul's groupography.'


Gunn, Joshua, MODERN OCCULT RHETORIC: MASS MEDIA AND THE DRAMA OF SECRECY IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY (2005).

(I think the numerous points of contact between my book and this one is an uncanny example of the occult which Gunn is so skeptical of!)
I commented to Joshua Gunn: 'I find many points of contact with your 'Modern Occult Rhetoric' and my site. I'll list in no particular order some of them:
Your first four paragraphs you rightly labeled 'earth shattering' and a 'ruse'. Based on your thoughts, I put down a few tentative ideas (key in Spinoza and Deleuze on your browser search/find). Yes, 'Anti-Oedipus' is not straightforward, and I don't list it in my Bib.
You distinguish occult rhetoric and occultic rhetoric, with your saying psychoanalysis is an example of the latter. I contend that my stuff is occult, not occultic. You may think I intended to employ irony and that it is occultic, but quoting my first page, 'You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.' You will see there that rhetoric is front and center. I use phrases that I call related: whistling, horse whispering, Mumbo Jumbo, the gibbering of the mad.
And Joyce, who you refer to, in the 'Wake' was also all about rhetoric. The Joyce of the 'Wake' is my major focus.
Mass media is your major concern as is mine. I mention the work of the Frankurt School, as you do in this area. One of my topics is the 'Stairway to Heaven' lyrics. I don't have to use backward masking or the Left Hand Path (sinister) to get at it's meaning.
Speaking of the Left Hand Path, I was pleased to see the Fool on the dust jacket. I picture the same Rider-Waite Tarot card on my site and discuss it. I talk about the Fool's yapping cur with which you end the book.')
His primary example is Satanic Ritual Abuse, but note "Satanic Ritual Abuse memories have to be screen memories for alien abductions, and the aliens had planted their memories of the cult experiences. But, if you go to the Satanic Ritual Abuse seminars, they'll tell you the opposite; they'll say that the UFO abduction experiences are all screen memories for actual Satanic cult experiences."

*Weidner, Jay,
http://www.JayWeidner.com/
You touch on innumerable topics in common with those I discuss which I also agree with, although I seem to sometimes fall on the opposite side. Let me rattle off some in no order:

1. Vedic Scriptures (although I need to look at the Puranas)
2. The 10,000 Year World Age/Aeon/Cycle Now Ending (Western Civilization) and the failure of its central organizing principle (and thus Obama's floundering).
3. The approaching Golden Age (the New Jerusalem)
4. The GOOD Project (Get Out of Dodge - I prefer the acronym GOD) - which is my Secret Rapture (your Great Evacuation) for my Coming Conflagration to Cleanse/Cull/Pruning the Earth when I will remove billions- also called the Ascension or Global Blackout or Alien Dreamtime! You refer to a Coronal Mass Ejection, but the 'Nuclear Detonation' I will shortly unleash won't be visible to the eye (it will be hyperdimensional). Ed Dames (aka "Dr. Doom") also wrongly prophesizes my 'Killshot' as due to solar flares. This is my response to Overpopulation (your Culling/Cleansing/Evacuation), where I also refer to Cameron's 'Avatar', not to mention 'Stargate Atlantis' with its 'Wraiths' (= ghosts who feed upon humans!) and its 'Ascension'.

'Stargate Atlantis' Culling

In the Golden Age, we'll appear to be native, but will be in fact becoming the highly evolved the spiritual beings you prophesy, who can access these hyperdimensions/other dimensions/the Other World.
5. The Kabbalah
6. The Aryan Master Race/White Male Supremacy (out of the ancient Vedic Caste System via mainly Blavatsky/Waddell into the Nazis).
7. Smoke and Mirrors Deception/Trickery
8. Demigods
9. The Nephilim who mated with the fair daughters (Dollfaces/Cutie pies) of men.
10. The Flood (the Conflagration that I will send again) with the new Ark for those I Evacuate.
You'll find more commonalities, including my adaption of your Tetrahedral Hyperdimensional Double Cone Time Vortex.

*THE LAST AIRBENDER (2010) ('boy' controls the weather)

The Last Airbender - Orgone

The 'smoky' mist is being emitted by the 'boy' from his mountaintop cavern. Unconsciously this signifies the slime he is spewing from his Fire Hose/Water Cannon planetwide! Little Boy Blue come blow your horn (boy in the body of a man who spews slime)! Repeating, I roll boulders down on mankind that dares to scale (storm Heaven) my mountaintop dwelling (sit on top of Holy Mountain as King of the World = rain down slime from my Gliding Fairy Boat/Heavenly Throne Perch).

'Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.' 'Take me home, Lord!' The New York skyline is prideful man's challenge to God (me) and an attempt to storm Heaven by force (the thrusting, phallic Tower of Babel). One review labels the film: 'Mass Conditioning for those left behind after the Rapture.'

mentions that Joyce used to carry a pair of lace-trimmed doll's knickers in his trouser pocket'. Joyce could have
satisfied his white panty fetish by simply carrying a pair of knickers. The doll is a telling detail. Note that
modern dolls, such as Barbie, have the features of adult women. They are uncomplaining and compliant, unlike
actual women. And dolls are rigid, and can be knocked over, as in Fairy Bowling (rigid = stone statues = erection).
Toddler girls at play are actually doing native voodoo sorcery (voodoo dolls with pins) with adults (their parents)
as pretend avatars/play toys. Joyce was scanning for targets, seeing in his mind's eye all the gorgeous living dolls
around him!

Chinese style Emperor Ming the Merciless - Evil Dead Fairy


Quotes from Madman Emperor Ming the Merciless as the Man behind the Curtain: 'I test each life system in the Universe. I
visit it with mysteries, earthquakes, unpredicted eclipses, strange craters in the wilderness... If these are taken as
natural, I judge that system ignorant and harmless - I spare it. But if the Hand of Ming is recognized in these events, I
judge that system dangerous to us. I destroy it utterly.' (the Deathstar was modeled on this serial original.) And 'If
you had known anything about the true nature of the universe, anything at all, you would've hidden from it in terror.'
"Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine." (Physicist A. S. Eddington).
