Since consciousness is an emergent property of recognition dynamics - or the symmetry of self and other - it stands to reason that when we die, the
only thing which matters in terms of 'what becomes of our sense of being' probably has something to do with symmetry.
Watching the farce that is the funeral of John McCain, and in particular, to be perfectly honest, I've just been triggered by an absurd article by
Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post which calls McCain a human rights champion; to boot, and in the background of the main pic is the Ukranian
neo-Nazi leader Oleh Tyahnybok.
Accident? Or irony? The last name Rubin - being the Judeophile that I have historically been - makes me reflect on the way the Hebrew language
conceives Rubin - the ruby, the son of Jacob who 'slept with his father's concubine'. The kabbalah interprets such a verse as a reference to a
dimension of human nature which is lustful and desirous i.e. "red" (the color we go when aroused). Rothschild - "red shield". The color red and the
doctrine of antinomianism - or satanism (satan is hebrew for "adversary") is probably a "thing" amongst certain elitist Jews.
In any case, this woman's effort to represent John McCain - war monger par excellence - as a "human rights activist", is beyond morbid. It is
downright misanthropic. No one who knows anything of John McCain would confuse him for a human rights activist, and yet here is Rubin making that
reprehensible claim, all the while doing it while the guy sitting next to him in the photo is a neo-nazi.
Is that by accident? What's the likelihood that an intelligent woman would create an article which claims something she obviously knows would be
controversial? And the picture she chooses is one with McCain and Oleh Tyahnybok? I'll assume this is some sort of tongue-in-cheak intimation that
McCain, despiting being a "human rights activist", is really at heart just like Oleh Tyahnybok.
This may be me at my most conspiratorial, but it really isn't conspiracy to ascribe collusion to people who believe in an insane, unscientific
representation of reality that seems to be built - religiously dedicated - to the concept of idealism.
Now, I for one am not a religious zealot, but rather think it important to acknowledge 'what causes what'. John McCain was a human being - and as a
human being, he is subject to everything I know to be intrinsic to the dynamical system known as "homo sapiens". My education in development and
anthropology allows me to conceptualize McCain as a very late effect of a system of belief practiced by the elite classes which is purely
mythological. The mythology - or the concept of mythology - is not as Mercia Eliade or Joseph Campbell thought - that is, as non-scientific thinkers
dedicated to the mythological construct known as the 'perennial religion', they were simply embodying and enacting the same diseased narratives that
drive "elites" to think that reality is arbitrary, and its really as much of a "you make your own truth" dynamic as they imagine it to be.
Alas, idealization while alive conceals the dissociation of unwanted truths - and it is these truths, reflective of a suppressed ideal symmetry -
which will likely cast its gaze - and in the process "create" our hell - as it reviews the meanings generated by our value-systems while alive.
Whose death? I suspect that the individual self is contingent on a body, and so without a body, you are no longer an individual, but the 'whole' -
whether that be conceived as the human being, or the Universe, the 'whole' is not just you, but the emergent property which allows us to observe and
Elites may think that when they die, what effects the quality of their afterlife experience is how the living - those who know them - think about
them. This of course is tendentious thinking - a wish that wishes to forget what it may realize deep down is way to basic to not be true: symmetry.
When you see your life from the beginning, and see it from the gaze of love, what we see or know as ourselves - as well as the people who related to
us and the effects they produce - likely produce a response that is not just limited to your own experience, but also theirs: not only were you
deluded and deranged about what 'means what', but the other you were attached to - your mother, father, siblings, grandparents, cousins, friends, etc
- all that too is a lie: the entire thing you valued and embodied was a farcity, and death, which reveals the "logos", or consciousness, which
logically extends itself in relation to what it coherently represents.
You could say it is a reversal of perspective death: while the truth of causal reality was cast to the margins while alive, the meanings you embodied
in your living - and the effects they produce, could be known 'side-by-side' with the promiment gazing of love.
What is shame but an awareness of one part of ourseves - the part that aims for wholeness and symmetry - casting its gaze on the effect of an
immediate experience - an asymmetry within ourselves? Asymmetries are always about 'doing': either someone mistreated us or we mistreated another.
Asymmetries are also very large: a military elite turned elite politician like McCain functions at so high a level that his actions, views, and
opinions have consequences for many people. The degree of power which a person exercises - and the significance of its effect on other human beings
(animals and nature as well) would then be the 'highest symmetry' to which his actions are correlated. There is an 'immediate symmetry' of the
interactions with the people he built these narratives with - reflecting their shared value system. And then there's the actual semiotic consequences
lived by the people who his actions beared upon: it is precisely this dimension, so 'far away' from the minds of McCain's and other's, which, if
known, would certainly make them 'change their tunes' and live accordingly to the laws of nature. Unfortunately, the brain's inherent ability to
dissociate and idealize, or defocus from a truthful content and its representation to a non-truthful content and representation, allows falsehood and
evil to grow.
Blame the universe, right? Satanism is, after all, all about the feelings described by Cain when God rejected his sacrifice: he resented him. I can
totally understand such feelings, but it is, nevertheless, a vain delusion to think that "you" and "God" are different things, or that physical
reality, having evolved before you ever existed - as the sciences show - is the template you have to adapt yourself to, and if not, and if you think
you'd rather keep at what you're doing, what do you expect to happen, other than the hell-process and the righting which controls all of reality?
A pet theory of reincarnation that I've been developing is based on 'karmic' principles like 'what you deserve' - the Hebrew language calls this
'measure for measure'. If the delusional elite thinks he is what pythagoreans and others believe - the culmination of an 'ancient soul' now on the
verge of apotheosis, his just desserts would come by being born in Bangladesh, or China, and forced to live a fetid existence.
Conversely, there are those people who are constrained in their living, wishing and hoping to "be that" - to be rich, famous, powerful. Maybe his
"just desserts" is to get just that: to be reborn into such a situation and, unfortunately, be fed back in a next life into squalor.
