The core of Western esotericism

The meaning of the Edenic apple is “choice”. Thus, the unspecified biblical fruit is always depicted as an apple because it resembles the human heart. Air quotes around “choice” are because the second meaning is that free will is an illusion. This is the beginning of what elites believe.

The apple stands in for the heart’s desires, which drive human action (a priori, as Mises would say). The people who follow this tradition eventually identify with the serpent, always offering humanity a “choice” between their hearts’ desire and abstention. The idea is that humans always choose the apple, because “choice” is chosen deterministically by desire.

If there is no such thing as free will, it follows that there is no such thing as sin. Sin is therefore also an illusion. There’s a slippery slope here. If sin is an illusion, then the only limits on our behavior are utilitarian. Lying, murder, rape, etc. are licit as long as we get what we want without being punished. And in much the same way that a psychopath views his marks as deserving it for being dumb enough to fall for his tricks, people who take the apple deserve the consequences of being slaves to their desires (follows by definition from materialism). Therefore the actions of those above them are justified. Those below are there because it is a reflection of their being.It’s the gnostic form of victim-blaming.

We saw this thought process play out ad nauseum in the Roffschild thread. Of course, this requires a person to hold two contradictory beliefs: 1) People are not equal. Some chosen few have will and some don’t. 2) People have equal responsibility to exercise their will, and those who don’t deserve what they get. But wait, there’s more! Aside from rationalizing shitty behavior, this belief system is the essence of the Babylonian Death Cult. The argument is that our heart’s desire is to experience less pain and anxiety. In the final analysis, this desire is Freud’s death drive. The end of utilitarianism is anti-natalism and mass extinctions.

The way this plays out for hermeticists, behaviorally, is that they are constantly offering false choices to the people they control. “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t” type situations. The deceiver gets what he wants, and additionally gets the thrill of deception, and the deceived gets what they “chose”. So the Manichaean dialectic is their preferred choice of manipulation. The most timely example is the modern choice between global socialism (progressive liberalism) and national socialism (the alt-right). Satan doesn’t actually care about the difference between nationalism and globalism, so he sets up this false dichotomy. The common element, socialism, is his real aim.

This is part of the larger project of replacing the cultural concept of “charity” with secular corporate spending, i.e. socialism. Control is the means to his end, which is the inversion of all reality. It’s an impossible goal, which is why everybody always dies in the process. To reiterate that link briefly, the elites induce confusion in order to weaken us. They weaken us in order to control us. And they control us in order to pervert us. Of course, they aren’t aware of each step simultaneously. How far you go up in the hierarchy depends on how good you are at hypocrisy. Misrepresentation, deception, gaslighting, and hypocrisy are all facets of the same thing.

    Just a shade too pessimistic.

    > Satan doesn’t actually care about the difference between nationalism and globalism

    Sure he does. He needs globalism for his endgame.

    Reminds me of Vejiortan’s stuff.

    It’s true that the corruption is inherent in atomized scale.

    There’s nothing esoteric about this.

    If no there free will so no there stupidity??

    • Z says:

      Intelligence or stupidity in theory have nothing to do with free will.
      Now, I think free will may exist in a limited sense.
      In the tiny space between what we “are” and what we “do”.

      • Santoculto says:

        Well, but when someone do a stupid thing we believe s/he did it because s/he did a freely bad choice. I think most of ”stupid behavior” are strongly instinctive. For example, why so many people have kids earlier in life even when they have some knowledge that it’s likely will prejudice their economic stability*

        In the modern urban scenario we evaluate ”precocious pregnancy” as a sign of stupidity OR lack of control to think well before to act.

        People think free will is

        ”to do whatever we WANT”

        but i think as we have intrinsic limitations, so ”free’ will is

        ”to do whatever we CAN”

    Briseis: Why did you choose this life?
    Achilles: What life?
    Briseis: To be a great warrior.
    Achilles: I chose nothing. I was born and this is what I am.

    I found this funny. A Jewish journalist saying that a supposed “return to wholesomeness” is “creepy”.
