Style Elements of Negative Tendencies

In short: the main style element of the inferior is rationalism. In the context of the war the inferior continuously tries to explain what the superior already “knows”. Explaining the obvious (rationalism) creates disintegration. Since knowing means being one with what’s “known”, explanation of a fragment of this absolute “knowledge” is a direct effort to destruct the identity of the superior. Therefore the superior must never tolerate either the message or the messenger.
Eating the apple represents both inferior learning (making -growing- and acquiring facts, then selling and buying them), and identifying (attempting to become one) with inferior knowledge.
False message always comes from below. To Eva it came from the snake, to Adam it came from Eva; in a different light: the superior received rationalism (inferior) from the negative, through doubt. Just like a man always have doubts about the woman. He never gets what he wants. Overtaken by rationalism, he no longer knows what he wants. Projected to the woman: what he wants is Sofia. What he gets is Eva.

Rationalism births fragmentation and disintegration: pure quantity. In lack of fundamentals, the world view is fragmented, the mindset is relative, thinking is unfounded (lacks a center, no strength); the individual is willing to rationalize and proudly (because he thinks he’s open-minded) accepts anything. In actuality the individual’s mind is really open; but it’s not open upward, above and beyond rationalism, but downward, towards the irrational. The individual is closed towards the superior (spiritual realm) and open towards the inferior (sub human realm).
In our times fear, doubt and rationalism are only optional to the superior few (elite), they are however not optional to the masses. The masses, unable to think clearly, independently, in absolute terms and with certainty on a supra rational level, constitute the medium for the spread and strengthening of the negative, destructive tendencies.
Since the characteristic of negative tendencies is the total lack of focus, once they encounter the superior (person) they fight it with quantity.
We can think of quantity as a mask of fear, doubt and rationalism; the mask represents the style of the inferior. It comes in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. Today the pure superior is not manifest; a superior person is always –to varying degrees- contaminated. He wears however the smallest mask of inferiority, which he is consciously trying to rid himself of. In the case of the superior person the mask becomes evident once the force of integration weakens. The following common scenarios may happen:
They compromise in communication in order to accommodate people that are positioned lower on the hierarchy: wrong compromise, because on the one hand it implies subordination to the inferior, on the other hand they don’t provide a force of (upward) integration towards people below them. Superior men thrive for perfect communication. Their reading and their writing are geared towards achieving the highest level of integration/integrity in this domain. Perfect communications stem from essential thinking, which occurs in the context of principles. There must be no compromise in this. Therefore the superior should, if possible, never communicate directly with the inferior. When looked at from a hierarchical point of view, the superior should only communicate with people maximum one level below them. If that’s not possible communication should take place with great control and in a hierarchical context, meaning that the superior should be highly aware of the limitations of the inferior. In this context the superior only makes statements and, through the lens of the highest context, listens to the inferior. Compromise in communication typically, and today very often, happens when the superior is only surrounded by people several levels below him and he’s unwilling to distance himself from them.
There develops a gap between the will, thinking and acts. There’s no longer any harmony. One of these factors become weak. These maybe small gaps, only perceivable to the superior, but they may develop into serious “debts”, that would seriously devalue life. The first signs could be observed in differences such as those between thinking and acting (value based compromised) and then between statement and acts (lies). Such “debts” grow exponentially, eventually causing negative potentials to reach a critical point, at which stage the superior falls several levels down and may never recover his “chance” to rise again.
They get attached to desires. For a superior person these desires are never materialistic, but they are desires nevertheless. Once a desire develops it becomes a factor that blocks the self realization of the person. If the superior becomes unable to get detached from desires (even though some of them may have served a purpose in “rising”), they failed.
People with a large mask
communicate only within the range of rationality. Only few of them thrive for supra rational intuition mostly through arts or maybe martial arts. They are insensitive to higher principles, most of them don’t have the potential to rise above their current level. They are compulsive analyzers on all levels. Excessive: they either talk a lot or they don’t talk at all.
Completely identify with what (and mostly how much) they know or what position they fill in their company or “society”. Since neither their knowledge, nor their position have any foundation they are always in an identity crises, looking for something stable. On the physical plane they are compulsive shoppers, collectors, “owners”, in the majority of the cases also compulsive eaters, and drinkers. Similarly, on the mental (not intellectual!) plane they accumulate “knowledge”: they read and “learn”, “educating” themselves, chanting the “lifetime learning” mantra. There is no qualitative difference between their eating and learning habits. They read for a quick fix, and they may as well eat believing that it is lifetime learning. They constantly visualize the object of their desire. Mostly opportunistic and “egoistic”. No tension between men and women. In fact, the differences between the two are disappearing.
Quantity rules their lives: they are playing numbers’ games. They confuse volume with quality. Real quality is mostly absent. Those of them, who have a vague need for some quality, become “connoisseurs”, and look for quality in food, drinks or artifacts, which in lack of true context they can’t truly enjoy, and appreciation (understanding) becomes an act of collecting.
People with the largest mask can’t be truly considered to be people.
Their communication style is mostly irrational. They’re unable to see connections between things, they maybe below specialization.
They only identify with what they have. If they have money they buy excessively and impulsively (see rap “stars”, movie “stars”, corporate “stars”, striptease “stars” ,etc.). Fundamentally ruled by emotions, they are unable and unwilling to exercise any control. Their behavior completely lacks context. The males on this level lack any kind of masculine discipline and instead of controlling sexuality, they are fundamentally controlled by it, just like women are. They are ridiculously busy with everything; when looked at as a mass, they look like ants in a hive. Similarly to people with a large mask, they always work on projects, which are focused on their body, their financials and their social ranks. But as opposed to people with large masks, these people don’t have any trace of intellect and consider the manifestation of the stupid to be aesthetics (see just about any video clip, the given street fashion, urban black “culture”, etc.)
Only driven by desires. They lack any kind of inner drive. Always on the lookout for new objects of desire. By identifying with the objects (the owner and the object create a system of identity) they themselves become objects (thingified) and mechanical. At this level the peak of their life is when they occasionally experience their instincts, typically in the context of pornography.1 Once the experience is exhausted they return to their “normal” mechanical state: no thoughts, no instincts, dim emotions, no context, therefore no real feelings: walking dead or worst: mechanical animals. They react to external stimuli, which is the context of their existence. They are completely dominated although they feel they are at the top of their game. We are rarely wrong when we assume that today the financially most “successful” (rewarded) individuals belong to this category; of course: the more financial performance depends on pleasing the masses (industries targeting the masses), the more this assumption is valid.

  1. on the basis of sexuality as symbology, pornography in the deepest sense means actionality without context where there is no direct contact between symbol and what it symbolizes. Originally pornography was the description of the sexuality of whores. Naturally it surfaced in an age, where there was a demand for such descriptions, so degradation that was previously just a potential was often actualized at the bottom of the hierarchy. Degradation and involution was later rationalized from different angles, one of the strongest of which was the “principle” of equality, which quite grotesquely turned men into whores. []
