GROIN.com predicts future reality

Thu 26 Feb 2009

WASHINGTON, DC (NNN) - During his most contentless speech to date, President Barack Obama appeared to accidentally insert notes left by other parties, fueling speculation that he is indeed a puppet of the global elite of oligarchs who in shadows rule planet Earth.

“Furthermore,” Obama said at one point, “America needs to rise to meet the challenges of this new century, and speaking of meeting, let’s make sure we have some hookers at Bohemian Grove this year.” Appearing bored, he continued to read the droning speech in precise and dramatic tones.

WASHINGTON -- Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen was just a few paragraphs into an address at a St. Patrick's Day celebration at the White House when he realized something sounded way too familiar. Turns out, he was repeating the speech President Barack Obama had just given.

But Cowen was 20 seconds into his second address when it dawned on him that he was giving word for word the speech that Obama had just read from the same teleprompter.

Obama laughed and returned to the podium to offer what might have been Cowen's remarks. In doing so, President Obama thanked President Obama for inviting everyone over.

Primordial Traditions Compendium 2009

Primordial Traditions, the traditionalist and esoteric naturalist organization, has put out a compilation of writings.

Primordial Traditions Compendium 2009 is a collection of original works on Hinduism, Buddhism, Tantra, Asatru, Islam, Mithras, Mayan astrology, perennial philosophy, Paganism, alchemy, esoterica, and mythology from the Celtic, Nordic, Teutonic and Greek Traditions. Inspired by thinkers such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Julius Evola, Immanuel Kant, René Guénon, Huston Smith, Aldous Huxley, Mircea Eliade, and Frithjof Schuon, the book examines religions from a 'top down' perspective and stresses the common ideas found in all major religions and spiritual paths. By examining the foundations of religious thought as philosophical values, the Primordial Traditions Compendium seeks to produce a level of wisdom or gnosis for the reader that is greater than that which would be provided by the study of single religious system. Primordial Traditions continues the work of previous authors in the study of perennial philosophy and examines the underlying metaphysical truths that can be found in all spiritual traditions. The Primordial Traditions Compendium explains religion and spirituality 'as it is' without placing emphasis on any particular religion or spiritual tradition. This examination of spiritual thoughts and practices is of equal value to all readers, from novices to experts in their field. With articles ranging from introductory through to academic levels, the book reveals new information for every reader.

I like how they assign special status to Kant, who popularized transcendental idealism and set up the revolution that was Schopenhauer and Nietzsche. You can find the book here:

Lost faith in Atheism

One of my favorite techniques -- to point out to the holier-than-thou deconstructors that deconstruction itself is a religion, and one without a constructive goal:

I'm realizing that any dogma becomes a religion, because no dogma (per Goedel) completely describes the world. There's a leap of faith in every single one.

I grew up in a good liberal home. I believed in equality, science and atheism as my dogma. These explained everything. If the people were unhappy, make them equal, bring in modern science and democracy, and soon they'd be sipping Coca-Cola in air conditioned rooms. Progress would dominate everything.

As I saw more of the world, I began to see the failings of this view. First, "science" is good at figuring out linear problems in a material context, but as soon as non-material concerns or more than one variable are in play, it starts to flake out. Also, "Progress" -- while it made me feel like a King to talk about it -- hadn't made people happy. It was like giving them the vote and technology divided them further from what they really needed to pay attention to. I cannot partake in science and progress as a religion anymore.

Now I'm not sure I believe in a soul, but there's definitely a personality to each person, although clearly (see Pinker) it's biological in origin, not picked by ourselves. I like some people's personalities and not others. Even more, I see that some personalities and personality types are destructive. I cannot partake in the religion of equality anymore.

So now I've lost faith in all things except philosophy, or using abstract logic to find answers. Atheism divides us from life by negating God; I find it better to revere life instead and not care if someone calls it God, nature or Life. In doing that, I have finally shed all religions and come into my own.


I hope it makes them choke, cough, and then re-assess. They aren't my enemies, but their bad logic based in low self-esteem and as such a need for social status has made them weak.
