'Twas Daynight Beforeafter

Why am I, Bob's unconscious, bothering to blog d'night before, and who knows, maybe even dafter? It's not as if I crave the lack of attention, even though I suppose I actually do. Oh, I don't know, maybe it's because down here, any given day is all of eternity, and all of eternity is a single day (/sarcasm).

If I am not mistaken, this is one of the "take away" points of your holiday season is it not? Don't you folks up there spend 11+ months running around like crazy, chasing the illusions of time, only to wind down at the so-called "end" of the year and reacquaint yourselves with the eternal? Isn't it just an elaborate ruse to trick you into seeing and being the way ought to anyway? It's like you finally get it through your thick skull what's important, only to forget it by the time the MLK post office strike rolls around in mid-January.

Well, I got some good news for you: the end and the beginning and the timeless and the eternal are always here anyway, since they can't be anyplace else. I know, I know, Sanity comes but once a year, but I'd hate to think what life would be like if I only popped into your life so infrequently. Given the services I provide and surfaces I prove void, I don't get much love.

As I was mentioning yesterday, I am the gestalt of the earth and the space of life -- the wholeness, the depth, the resonance, the richness, the allegorical, the metaphorical, the poetic, the mythological, the metaphysical, the paradoxable, the pundamental, all those little extra dimensions that give you access to the truly human. Without me, you'd have none of these things. Rather, everything would be just as it is, as it is for animals or materialists. I don't mean to complain, but I'm like a prophet without honor in your own faculties.

Now, having said that, I don't want you to get the wrong idea, as, say, the Jungians often do. I am not automatically "higher." Furthermore, I am not the content but merely the mode, really no different in that respect than your conscious mind. With regard to the latter, most of you are able to think in a linear and logical, "left brained" manner. That's the mode. But you will arrive at very different conclusions based upon the materials furnished to your reason, and which reason alone can never provide.

As Bob has mentioned, the psychospiritual left provides very defective materials to their left brain, which is why their ideas are so kooky when they aren't flat out monstrous. And when they are monstrous, I am ashamed to admit that it has to do with my influence.

To invoke Godwin's law at the outset, let's take the example of Adolf Hitler. What made him so dangerous? Yes, to a certain extent it was his reason, which could not be defeated on its own plane. That is, if you begin with the assumption that Jews represent a dangerous threat to the human genome, then it is not "illogical," strictly speaking, to do what you can to eliminate the threat. This is really only a step away from the radical environmentalist who begins with the assumption that humans are a "threat to the planet," so they too should be punished, say, for having children. How do you argue with such a person? You can't.

The reason you can't is because of me. Yes, faulty logic is dangerous, but faulty "translogic" is catastrophic. Again, the logic of the unconscious mind is not the logic of the conscious mind; or, if you like, the left and right brains perceive and interpret reality in very different ways. You might even say "male" and "female" ways, so long as this is understood archetypally and certainly not in any pejorative sense.

True, there is a reason why the Fall came through the female, but it was the female transferred into the male, after having first been trancemitted through the snake, who is closest to the earth and is therefore the archetype of horizontality. Thus, male, female, and snake are a kind of unholy trinity.

The snake is in direct opposition to mankind's intrinsic, "upright" verticality -- which is to say, bipedal vs. nopedal. It violates the cosmic order for a man to crawl. It makes a normal person wince to even imagine it. Nevertheless, even though the snake doesn't have a leg to stand on, that doesn't stop mater-ialists from believing his lies, mamamaya! The solution, of course, is not paterialism, but a harmonious marriage of the two principles, which produces a third thing, a "child" or sonthesis we call "reality." That's where you perpetually experience the razorredgeon of spirit in real timelessness.

In short, the Fall was an inversion of reality, similar if not identical to if not responsible for the curse of leftism, in which the cosmos is turned "upside-down" at the outset, so that the right brain is working on faulty materialistic assumptions, making it virtually impossible to defeat, since it is closed to higher truth.

Is that clear? The male principle is too weak to have either caused or resisted the Fall, but it is obviously necessary to implement it. All the real wholesale evil in the world is caused by heartfelt right-brained assumptions implemented by cold left-brain reason, from the French Revolution, to Nazism, to communism and on down.

The problem with real evildoers is that they believe what they believe, mind, heart, and soul, even -- or especially -- when they deny the latter. Thus, they are first evilbe-ers. This is the danger of atheism -- that it absurdly insists upon the truth of that which would deny the very possibility of Truth. So the individual atheist might be a harmless crank, but if his ideas were ever to be implemented on a widespread basis, it would be the end of the human being as such.

But fortunately, human beings are weak but resilient, so there is no real possibility of mankind at large adopting a metaphysic so completely at odds with its essential being. Atheistic arguments are so weak because they hold no appeal to the deeper levels of being. To put it another way, you have to be extraordinarily shallow for such an argument to satisfy your soul. Thus, atheism is not a statement about the world, but about the state of the soul who embraces it. All theories are obviously just representations of the world, not the world itself. Such a "thin" representation is ultimately self-referential.

As I said yesterday, the accurate perception of total reality requires a higher synthesis of conscious/unconscious, reason/intuition, left brain/right brain, etc., since one side of the complementarity by itself is inadequate to the task. Indeed, this is why we have the two modes, which are woven out of the very cosmos they are able to apprehend. They are not merely freak accidents of natural selection, as if we just randomly ended up with two brains that have the capacity to be synthesized into a higher noetic third. Please. If you'll believe that, what won't you believe?

In coonclusion, let me reemphasize that I am but a mode, albeit a necessary one for the comprehension and "penetration" of reality. This brings us to the question of what is the appropriate "content" for my mode? Well, for starters, how about Christmas? You know, like this.

By the way, just as there is a reason why the Fall came through the female, there is a season why the savior came through her as well.

Bob, this is the first Christmas that I can celebrate just having found you and still fully mystified that only God really knows how. And for the same reasons celebrating all my other friends here I never would have met without you Bob. What an incredibly rare place, time and space you have created that always feels so welcome and so nourishing to both halves of this man. How did I make it this far without you.

Merry Christmas to you Bob and your family, and my brand new one.
Merry Christmas everybody!

Yes, Merry Christmas to all you Raccoonistas! You are my gifts!

Earlier today, I read that Rush Limbaugh is involved in a spat with Mr. Huckabee. Rush has apparently commented about it, stating that he's not angry, that it's "just politics," that "presumably everyone involved is an adult."

Loved the word "presumably!"

Then I read Bob's Unconscious discussing atheists: "Such a "thin" representation is ultimately self-referential."

The word "rapier" came to mind!

Gifts upon gifts! Woo-hoo!

Bob writes in is post:

"So the individual atheist might be a harmless crank, but if his ideas were ever to be implemented on a widespread basis, it would be the end of the human being as such."

Question: what "atheist ideas" could be implemented?

I rebut because when examined (and I have examined in depth) the lifestyles, occupations, consumption parameters, reproduction rates, food preferences,politics etc. of atheists and then compared these to the same in believers, the differences were subtle and usually just cosmetic. The "differences" between the right and left political wings in this country, for instance, are mostly rhetorical hot air, the Democrat "takeover" of Congress being a case in point.

The parameter that IS different between atheists and believers is "attitudes and ideals" and yet these attitudes/ideals seldom translate into any discrete deviations form the norm in our culture. Atheists tend to want and do much the same things as believers (eat, work, reproduce, live in peace), leading me to believe a stable co-existence is normative.

So I am puzzled by your analysis that there are deviant atheist ideas--or, where do you draw the inference that there is a potential implementation threat?

I'm hoping to hear new information that would be valuable in my field.

Anthro,

Your question has been asked and answered in the comments sections a multitude of times to the point of becoming a broken record. Your wanting to "dance" with Bob is not novel here, there have been a long line of men (?) such as you who have qued up in the past to the point that it is getting boring. If you haven't been able to discern the answer, then that would be due to your own lack rather than any effort Bob has put in to explaining his position. You may disagree with his conclusions but that doesn't mean the question hasn't been answered.
(Hint) It's a take a step back and look at the bigger picture sort of understanding rather than a beancounter micro statistics thing.



AND!!!!

Merry Christmas to those of you so inclinded to loosen up and breath it in. ;^)

Perhaps Debass is being too cynical about Mr. Hitler. For instance, noted psychologist Will Smith said recently:

"Even Hitler didn't wake up going, 'Let me do the most evil thing I can do today'.

"I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was 'good'. Stuff like that just needs reprogramming."

The article continues:
"The Men In Black star, 39, is determined to see the best in people, and is convinced the former German leader did not fully understand the extent of the pain and suffering his actions would cause during his time in power in the 1930s and '40s."

I have a couple moments to slip away from dinner-making (we're doing it today, as guests must leave tomorrow), so Merry Christmas, Raccoons! I'd love to play ClueBall, but there just isn't enough timelessness right now - I have other reindeer games to play.

Julie,

This document: www.prairienet.org/prairienations/dpwoman.htm

The Ottawas say my woman (Latin: mulier), as well as the Algonkin and the Crees, and without a doubt many other nations not addressed by these vocabularies.

Massachusetts. Eliot, in his translation of the Bible, uses mittamwossis for the Latin mulier and uxor: -- Et dixit ad mulierem, kah unnoh mittamwossissoh, (Gen. 3:1) -- Et adam cognovit euorem suam Evam ; onk Adam waheau *Evioh* ummitam wussoh. (Gen. 4:1).

This ought not appear unusual. The English say my wife; the French ma femme. It is true that common usage is mon épouse, but that is an affectation and the word femme is used no less because of it. The Spanish, by the same token, say mi muger, and the Germans meine frau.

In the follow languages, the word woman (Latin: uxor) appears the proceed the words epit and squaw. See the entry for woman (Latin: mulier).

I'd propose only one minor footnote to that, that 'atheist' be understood to be one that is a Materialist, and so opposes the possibility of Truth from the get go.

The Atheist's who understand that there is Truth, as is usually the case with our Turkey, just haven't finished cooking yet. And those who call themselves Theists while professing Materialistic beliefs, are, Milton-like, in a state of de-cooking, soon to return to the deep freeze.

Here's one line for you, and it isn't regarding theoritical actions to come, but what has and is happening now.

Ready?

Examine the history of the proregressively materialist NEA, and its affect upon education in America - you don't need dictators to wreak evil upon a people.
