The problem of evil; is evil ignorance? Or is ignorance evil?
The problem of evil centers on the problem of knowledge, and the fact that the human being lives and dies by what they know.
Think about that. The mole or the rabbit lives and dies in a similar way; the mole is evolved to live in the ground and the rabbit is constructed to
move in brisk and subtle ways. The animal is the living idea, because the living world expresses the arcane meanings of the spiritual nature of
We are all expressions - living symbols - even though so few of us really understand the degree to which reality could bend to our will.
But is the human itself? Is the human expressing its semiotic uniqueness as a being that is built to chart its own inner and outer territory? Or is it
mired in the products of its own millennia long veering into the sitra achra - the other side?
Evil is a problem because it is blasphemously stupid. The person who believes in it is necessarily ill educated - lacking necessary knowledge of
how-things-actually work. The person has been baited into a state where the point-counterpoint condition of being is not noticed; the asymmetry of the
evil thought - the asymmetry of the summoned demon, is an asymmetry of perception, of being, of semiotic capital; the time we spend enthralled by such
evil necessarily puts our biological rhythms out of sync with the continuum that is nature and the universe; we break out, because we break from
our own nature, which is to chart our inner territory.
But do we do that? Or are we mired in the confusion of society and its vain clichés? We don't see the clichés because we haven't a coherent way of
representing what we are doing. A sort of insanity of arbitrariness exists in the minds of people who collude in their mutual affirmations of what is
an insanely dysregulated and disaccounting way of being.
I think the Hindu assumption that the adterlife experience depends on the body and that eliminating the body elimates that aspect of the afterlife
experience to be insanely naive. Numbers can help us think about it: The one is the universe in itself, and so is the universe in its wholeness as a
semiotic-being. The human being, on the other hand, is a product of twoness, insomuch as our inner experinece is modelled on the
communicator-listerner dialogue, and so is the experience of one human communicating with another human. The human is dialogical, which is why the
states we experience on the inside are so transferrable and mimetic; it seems as if the states we produce are the "thing" that evolves, whereas our
individual observing consciousness is that which experiences the semiotic consequences of how it is we handle the meanings of our personal existential
processes, as well as how we honor the fact that every state we experience - good or bad - is due to an environmental affordance - a force - which
equipped us with the capacity we later on took to be an "inherent" feature of our personality - something we call "temperament".
Interaction is assimilation of "information' or "meaning". Power - age - is often a major factor, as in the mother-infant relationship, or
child-older sibling relationship. What is transferred is something called a "self-state". It is a context based phenomenon in which the person
watching another person speak or do something takes on the same motivational-perspectival state at a later time that seems to have animated the person
he observed in a similar situation. Every one of us has a feeling of "doing something like so and so", and this is what I mean. Our minds replicate
states and select states on the basis of what those states afford in given situations; every negative experience necessarily recognizes its opposite
state, and aims to equip the self with "defenses" against known threats by absorbing self-states from others who show those positive affordances
i.e. bravado, charisma, is respected, kind, intelligent etc, depending on the cultural context, different values will be highlighted, and so different
values assimilated. The point is, the social context situates a value in the social context so that the developing self iteratively absorbs and
assimilates the self-states or "symbols of being human" which give rise to those states which come to value and feel the need for whatever it is
And this is where value comes into the picture. What is a true human value? Savetri Devi, as an example, would have said that Shiva is a true value;
and that the Shiva-Shakti relationship is one of beauty in destruction. And all this symbolism and metaphysical harlotry amounts to nothing more than
a psychopathic projection of all her dissociated early life experiences that steered her consciousness to one of constant disillusion. It takes merely
three years and than a negative context for an entire life to become one dedicated to a hateful and vile belief system based in veritably demonstrable
experiences and situations that, contrary to her histrionic embellishments of reality, do not need to exist, and thus, do not have to be real
existential feelings-of-being. "If my comrades are not destined to rule the world, then away with it! A shower of atom bombs upon it and in place of
its meaningless chatter about "love" and "peace" the voice of the howling winds over its ruins." She says this even though other people
experience "love" and "peace" as a perfectly desirable state of affairs. Why does this fissure exist - why do they - the psychopath - so
unflinchingly hold to an illusion about reality?
The one is Love. Reason - or the universe - or the Logos - evolves according to cause and effect, and in our little corner of the milky way galaxy,
our planet has provided conditions for a lifeform to emerge which has come to evolve towards the omega point. Love - reason - is the ultimate logic of
how our bodies work and how all living beings operate. It is the logic of three - or the circle i.e. pi. It is only love that allows this, even
though, paradoxically, the process of life begins - and always continue to operate from - the condition for individual self-preservation.
But humans can indeed see above this. It is a sad delusion that anyone can let themselves think evil is necessary. It isn't.
