Homo Is Truth, An Apocalypse

March 10, 2021

Justice requires truth. History in full is mostly about determining how the conspiracies built, and hid, the truth. In the case of Nazism, abstract, and often misleading notions such as “racism”, or “Versailles” do more to hide the truth than to reveal it. Why? In the most serious cases, the truth is an apocalypse, literally.

Apocalypse is “revelation, disclosure,” from Church Latin apocalypsis “revelation,” from Greek apokalyptein “uncover, disclose, reveal,” from apo “off, away from” (see apo-) + kalyptein “to cover, conceal,”

An example of apocalypse was the historian Gibbons case accusing Christianism. Gibbons was following emperor Julian (reigned 360-363 CE). This was an apocalypse, because Western civilization has long been presented as “Christian”. Whatever it is

My family, which was in the resistance to the Nazis, harboring more than 100 Jews, etc. was involved in the fascist racist apocalypse of the Twentieth Century, three times. First World War, Second World War, and what should be called the African War (still ongoing to Biden’s chagrin).

Christians were big on the Apocalypse. Little did they know they caused it… Although they did not originate the degeneracy which enabled their stupid and criminal ways. Osogovo MonasteryRepublic of North Macedonia

I have more apocalypses to serve: for example, that the plutocratic phenenomenon is intimately entangled with the nature of supreme intelligence and civilization. Simpler, but harder to swallow: that Nazism, although entangled, in its hatred of Jews, with Christianism, sheer racism, even Darwinism, Prusso-German imperial mass homicidal and official holocaust policies, was greatly not only to the advantage, but the foremost tool of global (read US) plutocracy… which found in Nazism, Stalinism, and various other fascisms (even the Vietminh for a crucial little while), the ideal lever to destroy whatever was in the way of the world domination by the abusive mood which has characterized it since 1609 CE… (Or even before, because the “West Country Men” of the 1609 investment first sacked Ireland…)

Naturally, common sedate adults, at the levers of entire countries, or organizations, do not like apocalypses: they could threaten the power positions they enjoy.

For example Putin does not enjoy all the apocalyptic turmoil his opponent Navalny expose him to. So Putin, or his henchmen, had Navalny poisoned, and, when Navalny got resurrected in Germany, and then came back, Putin jailed, or a so-called judge, more exactly, had Navalny jailed again. Then what did so-called “Amnesty International”do? AI had found in the past that Navalny was “prisoner of conscience” (a concept directly translated from the French). That was fine, as long as Navalny was not threatening the establishment in Russia to the point he now is. As I said the establishment does not like apocalypses. Amnesty International has become part of the establishment… Now Navalny is on the verge of forcing people of influence, to look at Putin as the tyrant he is… An apocalypse threatens… So AI, as part of the establishment, found this a bit too upsetting… And Amnesty International removed from Navalny his status of prisoner of conscience (alleging that Navalny had said, in 2007, that illegal immigrants to Russia should be deported… Something that is the law in all countries…).

Apocalypses are all over, ever more… Want a few? Men who chemically treat themselves with hormones more dominant in females, and practice various amputations, dissimulations, lying and dissembling… Are still, in more than 99% of cases still XY creatures, who should not be considered females, because they are not… That does not mean I am against changing sex like one changes clothes: it simply cannot be done… Yet. That does not make me “transphobic”, that just calls attention to the fact transphiles are even less genuine than pedophiles… Although I am all for one gender bathrooms, that does not mean I will pretend that an XY has the right to compete in sport against XX while pretending to be what he, yes HE, is not… We the apocalyptists do like liars, they are our natural prey, especially when they claim to be what they are not, because they find in it some personal advantage….

Vegans come around. claiming one should have nothing to do with our fellow inferior species… Not even realizing that what vegans imply is the annihilation of the species they claim to respect, because, once the animals lose economic utility, they will be annihilated by the soy bean and palm tree plantations… Here I am revealing an old idea: a very similar argument was used by the Roman government in the Fourth century. The idea was that the Roman government should not annihilate the Goths, because they were so special, and one did not want such a strange race to go the way of Thessalian lions and Libyan elephants… Both of which had just disappeared… Because one had found no utility for them in a timely manner… So the Roman government should use the Goths rather than do away with them. The argument stays valid to this day: long live the endangered turtle soup… As long as the turtles are multiplied in farms…

I am just revealing here an argument that is 16 centuries old, showing some apocalypses need repeating, and still sound like science fiction to the primitives full of sophisticated stupidity. Really: vegans still do not understand a rather trivial argument already made 16 centuries ago by a government not known for its intellectual prowess?

One more apocalypse? The truth is one cannot have a “green” planet without mastery of nuclear energy. And yes, that’s the key to colonizing (such a nice concept), the Solar System.. Oh, yes, the anti-colonialists are ALL hypocrites: they owe their existence to their colonizing ancestors, in more than 99% of the cases…

Yes, as ageing is replaced by rejuvenation, thanks to gene transfer and epigenetic erasure, we will need ever more land mass, and by this I do not mean just a balmy Siberia, or Greenland forests… But the Moon, Mars, Ceres, Ganymede, Europa, Enceladus, even Pluto…

Yes, we are the apocalyptic species. The apocalyptic genus. But is there better divinity to serve than the truth, and nothing but the truth?

Potential Armageddons Are Best Fought With Transparency, Not Mental Subjugation

February 14, 2021

The establishment is conspiring for implementing an even more thorough mind control than it has already achieved. To do so, it intents to control “truth”. I agree “truth” is the number one problem, but having the establishment control it makes it worse: it is the penultimate stage of civilizational collapse, just before the plebs, We The People, realizes that they had been had, and roast the plutocrats on spits (as literally happened during the “Jacqueries” of the 14C; this clearly happened when the Mayan civilization collapsed, when city-state after city-state saw its elites burn and gods destroyed by the enraged people finally aware of the incompetency of the governance they had been submitted to). So established thinkers say what they are expected to say, justifying their salaries. by suggesting everybody should carry Big Brother, or should I say Big Facebook? Around the neck, 24/7:

How vulnerable is the world?
Sooner or later a technology capable of wiping out human civilisation might be invented. How far would we go to stop it?

The Apocalypse is not far around the corner…

Any human population contains more than an “apocalyptic remnant”, a subpopulation of individuals who are evil-bound. Arguably, this is potentially the case with everybody, given the appropriate circumstances to trigger the behavior. Preventing the apocalypse will require more openness, and transparency, debate and truth, instead of trying surveillance, closure, lies and mental control of the population… that latter instruments of subjugation will actually make it easier to trigger the apocalypse, by letting only a few access the ultimate power of knowing other minds. 

Absolute power corrupts absolutely: those who have the absolute power of mental cognition of others will worry about losing that power… and at a reaction to the unjust subjugation they exerted. Protected by the secrecy and power conferred to them to prevent the apocalypse, terrified at the idea of losing their power, they will obsess to find means, any means, to keep the power secrecy and censorship confer… And they will have those means, precisely because they exert censorship. This happened for real at the end of the Roman Republic. The Senate exerted censorship. It did not stop there; Cicero, to Caesar’s outrage, overrode the constitution, and executed without trial Roman citizens, arguing from a mix of emergency and secrecy (conspiracy of Cataline). 

Plutocracy means: evil-power. Using evil means confers power that should not be used. And first of all among evil means is knowing all what other people think and do (consider asocial networks right now, selling our souls to whoever is interested by buying them). This is the ultimate evil because it enables to reduce thinking to monothinking, the ultimate intellectual fascism. That destroys mental diversity which feeds human intelligence, hence human wisdom, our genus’ essence.

The reason for the “Apocalyptic Remnant” being within all individuals is evolutionary. The genus Homo has dominated the planet for millions of years during which it became the greatest threat against the ideology which supports it. So Homo had to cull Homo. This is the :original Sin” Christianism deplored… But it does not go without knowledge, thus wisdom. Indeed wisdom is power and power ultimately means dominance. 

Thus worrying about human beings having too much power is nothing new. It has been the case for millions of years. Holocausts and cannibalizing the enemy were the solutions. That there will be more of this in the future, as there were some in the past is no reason to panic now, and throw the baby, human intelligence, with the bath.

Instead the solution is to become more intelligent. 

In 1935 Irène and Frédéric JoliotCurie were awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for the synthesis of new radioactive isotopes. In 1937 Irène discovered that Uranium 235 could sustain a chain reaction, and had an entire correspondence with her German colleague Otto Hanh about this (Hahn did not believe her). In January 1938, Irène and Frédéric JoliotCurie went to see the Ministre de la Guerre, and told him nuclear bombs were possible. The Minister of War then withdrew all and any patents about nuclear energy, and what came to be known many years later as the Manhattan project was launched. Disinformation, including giving the Physics Nobel in 1945 for Irène JoliotCurie’s discovery, has obscured this history… But it was one of the factors in the invasion of Norway by the Nazis, as they knew France had Norway’s largest dam producing heavy water for use to slow down neutrons in nuclear reactors. Ultimately collaboration between France, Britain, Canada and the US produced nuclear bombs, and the Nazis were left out. The cooperation between the scientists was fully open, but it was closed to the exterior word: French general De Gaulle was told in 1944 by a French science leader of the Manhattan project in Canada that “une ville, une bombe”… whereas Truman learned of the bomb only when he became president. 

The case of the Hubei virus shows that transparency saves lives, and mitigates potential apocalypses: in the latest finding of the WHO (February 14 2021) there were at least 1,000 cases of COVID in December 2019, with 13 variants. That was kept wrapped in secrecy. Several months were lost in which containment and vaccines could have been prepared.  

People devolve into the Dark Side and the apocalypse, an un-covering, when the Dark Side and reality are revealed, when they have to, because there are no other solutions. Transparency, debate, intelligence and wisdom will find solutions, given enough openness. This is the way, going forward.

Cool: Species Nearly Destroyed All Life Before

August 8, 2018

Earth. The Dark Side. Homo. It has become standard to point out that the genus Homo may destroy life, or, our species, or, at least, civilization itself. This is related to the “Fermi Paradox” (“Where is everybody?” asked Enrico Fermi around 1950…) The idea was that civilizations self-destruct, hence no civilization is visible in the galaxy. To which I retorted that we overestimate the likelihood of advanced life in the galaxy, for a galactic sized number of reasons:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2013/11/06/40-billion-earths-yes-no/

One argument I rolled out is that life was nearly extinguished on Earth by life itself: consider “Snowball Earth”. This weapon of mass life extinction was generated by the advancement of life itself. Let me quote myself:

“Primitive bacterial life is probably frequent. However advanced life (animals) is probably very rare, as many are the potential catastrophes. And one needs billions of years to go from primitive life to animals.

After life forms making oxygen on Earth appeared, the atmosphere went from reducing (full of strong greenhouse methane) to oxidizing (full of oxygen). As methane mostly disappeared, so did the greenhouse. Earth froze, all the way down to the equator:

When Snowball Earth Nearly Killed Life

Yet volcanoes kept on belching CO2 through the ice. That CO2 built up above the ice, caused a strong greenhouse, and the ice melted. Life had survived. Mighty volcanism has saved the Earth, just in time.

That “snowball Earth” catastrophe repeated a few times before the Earth oxygen based system became stable. Catastrophe had been engaged, several times, but the disappearance of oxygen creating life forms had been avoided, just barely.”

Intense chemical weathering by massive acid rain is the likely cause of the end of a period known as the Marinoan glaciation, which happened form 650 to 635 million years ago, according to a paper published in the journal PNAS. This was the last occurence when nearly all of the Earth’s land and seas were frozen over, known as snowball Earth, with glaciers as thick as 2km. Other times, on the right, Earth had no ice at the poles… Present day civilization can survive a warm Earth (right)… Not a Snowball. However, to get from what we have now to no ice, in a geological blink, means ultimate war…

What does this mean philosophically?

Most philosophical systems in the traditional sense don’t consider the truism that, to get creation, one needs destruction, and the more creation, the more destruction. Why? That sounds childish, thus unwise. But children encounter the primeval. Philosophy extended to religion revels in destruction. Actually the Deus/God/Allah destroys the entire universe to establish Heavens.

The universe is a brutal place: not only do planets get flung into space, stars explode, but even entire galaxies get destroyed. The universe is also a happening.

In the greater scheme of things, a war where, say, seven billion people got killed would be nothing special: that was the world population in 1803, when the imbecile Napoleon, having mightily endeavored to reestablish slavery, losing an army in the process, sold a third of the present day US to the USA for 11 million dollars.

In the movie Terminator, Artificial Intelligence takes over, causes a nuclear holocaust, and tries to extinguish humanity. It is more likely though that more and more formidable wars would accompany a Hot Earth scenario… which is what we are going towards, quickly. As I have argued in the past, 2C Is Too Much! Under 2C of global warming, a chain reaction of tipping point would unleash itself, and self-accelerate:

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/2-c-is-too-much/

Now the idea is hitting the mainstream, nine years later. See: “Trajectories of the Earth System in the Anthropocene” in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. There, scientists argue that there is a threshold temperature above which natural feedback systems that currently keep the Earth at a nice temperature (around 15 C, global) will unravel. At that point, a chain reaction of climate events will thrust the planet into a “hothouse” state. Though the scientists don’t know exactly what this threshold is, they said it could be as little as 2 degrees C (4 degrees F) of warming above preindustrial levels. We are above that half-way point…

As they put it in scientese: We explore the risk that self-reinforcing feedbacks could push the Earth System toward a planetary threshold that, if crossed, could prevent stabilization of the climate at intermediate temperature rises and cause continued warming on a “Hothouse Earth” pathway even as human emissions are reduced. Crossing the threshold would lead to a much higher global average temperature than any interglacial in the past 1.2 million years and to sea levels significantly higher than at any time in the Holocene. We examine the evidence that such a threshold might exist and where it might be. If the threshold is crossed, the resulting trajectory would likely cause serious disruptions to ecosystems, society, and economies. Collective human action is required to steer the Earth System away from a potential threshold and stabilize it in a habitable interglacial-like state. Such action entails stewardship of the entire Earth System—biosphere, climate, and societies—and could include decarbonization of the global economy, enhancement of biosphere carbon sinks, behavioral changes, technological innovations, new governance arrangements, and transformed social values.”

People are deeply unaware, they believe that the planet’s climate is more stable than it really is. The episodes of Snowball Earth show that this is not the case. This erroneous feeling of ecological stability is the main source of the indifference which brings the destruction of the planetary climate.

The apocalypse, in the greater scheme of things, is not apocalyptic. After all, an apocalypse, etymologically speaking, is just an uncovering… And this is precisely this normalcy of the abnormal, which will make go so smooth…
