On Abortion

Since it’s the topic of the moment: what is the moral position on abortion? It’s in fact not a very complex question. To begin with, we must quickly dispense with the absurdity sometimes argued that the foetus has no true life of its own; such is impossible to be argued. Irrespective of the foetus’ reliance […]

Short thoughts on the soul.

It is common to treat our self-consciousness as being synonymous with the soul-mind itself. We know our bodies to be our own, but we do not have knowledge of our bodies in a way that differs from the way we know the bodies of other people. In both cases, our body and the bodies of […]

Unity of gods and titans.

Few know, but titans and gods are truthfully one and the same. Saturn and Jove are of one unbroken and undifferentiated existence preserved in divinity, indistinguishable from one another in their real essence. So why are titans and gods treated as separate deities? Why tradition has distinguished titans from gods is owed to the ‘ontological […]

Deprivation of mind and its effects.

Platonic attraction is in seeking self-completion. Via love between complements, each part of the union is conjoined to produce a superior wholeness, and it is by this that each become greater participants in the totality of goodness, and so expand their own goodness. And so when we speak of cosmogenesis, goodness is unfolded through a […]

On soul and her embodiment.

Our descent into embodiment can be identified as the product of ignorance and desire, these stemming as consequences of our ontological position within the hierarchical chain of being. All things participate from their superiors, but some beings—such as ourselves—do not fixate their conscious cognition upon the whole union of good within which they partake. This […]

Regarding common criticisms of Neoplatonism

This article was written on 14/07/2020 and is an archived post from Fashevik Truths for Esoteric Youths. Severel edits have been made to better clarify some of my points and some small amounts of extra information have been added to complement them. It was posted originally in three parts, so hence their divisions. Part 1 […]

Detached thoughts on women.

The following was originally posted on my private wall on Facebook, but I figured it to be good enough to be shared. I have a lot of thoughts regarding the “Woman Question”, some that are probably greatly unorthodox compared to common takes. I might share more on this over time, though since speaking of women […]

Theological incoherency of the Abrahamic God.

Jewish theology admits to the Abrahamic God’s incompatibility with divine simplicity. Tzimtzum is their attempt at addressing this problem, saying that all is simple, and that the cosmos only exists as a false paradox concealing God, but is really all one and the same as God. So that simplicity would be preserved, they claim Ein […]

Against Aquinas’ incarnate Christ.

The purpose of this critique will be to address Aquinas’ theology of Incarnation from Summa Theologiae, wherein he justifies by manner of metaphysics the incarnation of Christ. I will quote Aquinas and then follow with my remarks. In explanation to those unaware of how Aquinas formatted his Summa Theologiae, he begun with the article’s question […]

Will to Power to Will.

On Nietzsche’s “will to power”, we might better rewrite it “will to power to will”. The accumulation of power can never be an end. An end entails rest, and power unexercised contradicts its essential act of motion towards end, so power at its end no longer exists. First will (FW) knows last will (LW) and […]
