Although I honestly like the guy and enjoy the material he puts out, I’ve criticized Jordan Peterson for pushing a proto-Luciferian cultural Christianity emphasizing the triumph of consciousness over the heart. Now, unless he unveils a hidden 13th principle as an addendum to his recent book, I’m going to assume he’s a stand-up intellectual guy who’s looking for truth, but his heart just isn’t ready to die to itself for Christ. But what that means is everything he learns about himself, and humanity by extension, is going to be a hack job to fix a fundamentally broken person.
Worshiping the human psychological principles represented by the Zodiac would be the most natural religion in the world. Seeking self-knowledge is self-worship, which is the deepest desire of the human heart. Imbuing these inner archetypal personalities with stories and making sacrifices to them like gods is a great way to invite Travelers into your home. And, taking the human experience as central (i.e. humanism), it becomes easy to dismiss stories of gods as shared delusions, because are these stories not merely the expression of stories within the human breast?
The naturalist’s desire to form the perfect world order built from this gnosis follows immediately from the study of philosophy and psychology, which is why these fields hold such an intense fascination for would-be philosopher kangz. Except, if you substitute the problem of entropy for the problem of Evil, you’re really just treating the symptom and not the sin. And so on and on we go, creating new world orders every 216 years, give or take (216 = 6*6*6).
(This is not to say I oppose treating the symptom. By all means, take steps to reduce your chronic inflammation. But to treat your heart condition, you need a deeply counterintuitive intervention method. One that could not have been an emanation of the human heart, because it’s downright offensive to all our sensibilities.)
