I know people probably think I’m messing with them or trying to pull a fast one when I say I believe that Humanity is One. I do believe that, there are just mostly 8-bit interpretations of that claim in circulation. Anyone who denies it you shouldn’t take seriously. This is what EVERY discussion between left and right should start with, and they never do.
This is one of those “always-already” “brute facts” of our existence, this Oneness.
The right, in my mind, implicitly responds to the left by saying “No, I don’t think that’s a good idea for our One.”
We’re sharing a planet with lots of quasi human beings. Quasi, you know that word? Sort of like the character Quasimodo.
My point here is that I’m complimenting them for being human beings at all, quasi or otherwise. Because it seems like a certain fact that we indeed are all One.
So after that fact’s been established we have to wonder what to do about, because certain people do give the impression they are distant from that Oneness. A baboon, say, is very distant from the Oneness, yet it is also included. You could probably develop a friendship with a baboon better than you could with a dog.
Then we have more obscure awarenesses that mostly only mystics recognize, like Oneness with stones and so on.
I just want us to reflect for a moment on this, because this is one of the only things the left is actually right about in my opinion. They get the basic fact right, then misinterpretation follows.
What inspired the above thoughts was my contemplation of what philosophers the US has produced. You know that I think William James (brother of Henry James- good family) is pretty much the closest thing to that we have. Ooooh Willie Nelson here. The Buffalo Bill of philosophy.
So even the very best of Americans are distant from the Oneness.
I don’t expect many to grasp what I’m trying to get at here.
Okay. From my point of view, all of humanity is One Person. By that I mean that even people who are dead now are part of that One Person.
Or think of it as ol granpaw or what have you, his wisdom. There are some ol granpaws in the memory of the One Person that see William James as similar to Willie Nelson.
So if that’s the BEST American that’s ever lived…
People who are close with the American spirit should not be trusted regarding what we should do with the Oneness and those who are distant from it.
An American IS one of the distant ones.
Yes, we have a One- it’s a top-down One.
We have the great minds of history at the top of it.
I’m their “agent” so to speak. I try to represent them to the demonic rabble of the present. Things don’t go so good usually.
What I think we should do with the Oneness? Bring them closer to those great minds of history. That’s bringing them closer to the One.
I obviously am not sounding like a leftist here. Well, that’s because your understanding of the One is probably completely confused due to years and years of false notions about it from the Quasimodos.
Plotinus is quite boring to read these days so I try to spin him into something that is somewhat paltable to modern people. But I know there’s nothing that can do that. This is a granpaw that’s TOO close to the One, so it’s blinding.
My point is that there’s a “descending quality” of the One. There’s a flow downward. And if you begin with a Buffalo Bill American or shtetl jew you’re starting halfway up the “staircase”.
Doing that ultimately undermines the One.
Left liberals are an enemy of the One at the end of the day. They only degrade it and pull souls further away from it.
You are exilebrained beyond repair if you think the goodness of the One requires bringing everyone to a lesser state.
There are orders from above, as it were. These men existed in history. They are not Willie Nelson James. And the typical American isn’t even 1/100th of him!
To sum up, they’re in the confusion of modifying the Oneness toward stones rather than the opposite direction.
