Date: Sun Sep 16, 2001 12:34 pm Subject: a Reichian perspective As author of the book "Saharasia", which focuses upon the characterological differences between freedom-loving nations, and the fascism of modern Islamic fundamentalism, I've got quite a few emails asking for my opinions about the present disaster. Here are a few of them, not well organized, but simply a listing of facts that very few persons speak about, even after such a disaster. 1. As discussed in Saharasia, the major motivation for fundamentalist hatred of non-fundamentalists (of any religious background) is the absence of the latter group's adherence to strict "moral codes" regarding sexuality and female reproductive functions. A fundamentalist who is raised with heavy obedience training, who suffered through severe genital mutilations, severe abstinence demands, segregation of the sexes at an early age, and ruthlessly-enforced virginity taboos (girls murdered for violations), when such a person grows to be an older teenager, they react with extreme rage and anxiety when confronted with the physical presence of another person who is more emotionally alive and fluid in character structure. And from that extreme rage and anxiety, comes new belief-systems and social institutions which organize the emotional outbursts into "religious demands" for attacking such a person. Translated into entire social structures, this is ? >>do see the rest in the 6-12 prfr>> -----woopszsidaisy by piet 10:59am Wed Dec 5 '01 hahpweb.org/pub/perspective/saharasia.html Reviewed by Paul Von Ward at some humanitarian site first lines (to make up for the double comment with only one line more in the second)------  in- contro- and reverse seem-seam as new-sew (english) by piet 11:15am Wed Dec 5 '01 Read the post after commenting; now it's time to comment after reading the post: "Muslims as a whole were never at the receiving end of the corruption and cruelty inherent in a church-state alliance." aahaa, mm mm, thats on it's head alright. not a nailhit but a standing mind you. and what the screw is a 'totalitarian voluntarism'? . .

The US Santa Claus is a conflation of those fundamentally opposed characters, see 'When santa was a shaman', pitting the folksy / rural leader against the army backed urban prelate, priest pope, hiero- and or sycophant and showing the subdued, subjected, enslaved and made servile indigenes translated to invaluable loyalist.

Let's bomb anybody who looks like Bin Laden, or his sisters or his cousins or his aunts, or somebody who might have smoked "psychotic" hash with him in the last 20 years.

Oh, by the way, I am doing some serious moving over the next few months so don't worry if my site appears to stop growing.  first half of CHAPTER 8: GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS off of chanceandchoice.com The Unique Potentials of the Earth and the Ten Directions. By Arnold Keyserling

Here is my tweak of Keyserling's do re mi:

||||||||||||||||||
8. Scorpio - Body Feeling - Middle America including Florida, Mexico, Central America. Death, effort, the wonder of existence is the starting point. Dreams and visions are accepted as a gate, like the Mexican Quetzo- cotal, the feathered serpent, or the Native American tradition of opening a new and unexpec- ted reality, as shown by Casten- ada's Don Juan.
|||||||||||||
9. Sagittarius - Body Willing - Eastern America, most of South America. The common aim is freedom of choice, following your own dream; conscious in the north, dreamlike in the south. The ideal is using education for human potential and progress.
|||||||||||||||||
10. Capricorn - Soul Sensing - Iceland, Brazil. In the north the "Eddas" are formulated in Iceland. In Brazil the Candomble, Umbanda, and Quimbanda create a religious syncretism where the Catholic religion is an integrated part. The ideal is multinational. Brazil accepts all ways as equally valid, from dream to spiritual reality.
||||||||||||||| 11. Aquarius - Body Thinking - Western Europe, West Africa. The birthplace of techno- logy and humanism, it expanded through colonization to unify the globe by 1962 with a techno-
logical information society. The ideal is mastery and individuality as with the French Revolution: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
||||||||||||||||
12. Pisces - Spirit Feeling: the greatest land mass from Northern Europe over Central and Eastern Europe, Israel and central Africa. The common faith is the starting point. The ideal is a society serving God and others, from Christianity to Socialism.
 1. Aries zone - Soul Willing - Persia, Arabia. They look for a prophet, or a leading hero, a sacred law: Abraham, Zara- thustra, Hammu- rabi, Moham- med. The ram is the sacred animal.
 2. Taurus - Body Sensations - Kazakh- stan, Tibet, India, Ceylon. The richest and most physical sub- continent seeing the spiritual way to overcome death, through hatha yoga, meditation and renun- ciation.
3. Gemini - Spirit Thinking - China, Indonesia. Born out of polarity (Fu Shi, Yang and Yin), they strive for an edu- cational commu- nity based on a common spiritual will.
||||||||||
4. Cancer - Soul Feeling - Japan and Australia. In this sector accept- ance of beauty, quality and socialness, and artistic and technol- ogical perfection are funda- mental. The ideal is a thoroughly organized society. In Australia the animistic knowledge of commun- ion with animals still persists.
   5. Leo - Body Willing - New Zealand, Poly- nesian. The basic mentality is courage, as with the Maoris, and the ideal is social welfare like in New Zealand.
||||||||||||||||
6. Virgo - Spirit Sensing - Tahiti, Hawaii, Oceania. One common language unites the Spirits and Man in Hawaii. The Huna tradition demon- strates a simple way to merge Ego, Self and Being: the speaking self, the magical child and the wise old man. Through song and healing, the commu- nion with the beyond is attained.
 ||||||||||||
7. Libra - Soul Thinking - California, Western United States and Canada. The relation man/ woman is in the foreground and so here the New Age and Human Potential movement s started. The ideal is the myth of the western, the heroes journey.

Ps2: Blurb and table of content for chanceandchoice by Professor Arnold Keyserling and R. C. L., J.D.

 This book connects the latest scientific theories with the oldest spiritual insights. The whole spectrum of human knowledge is synthesized to reveal the spiritual significance of the dominant belief system of modern times, the Myth of Science.

This volume of the School of Wisdom's English Language Publication Series is its advanced text. All of  the basic ideas and curriculum of the School are presented in a concise form with hundreds of charts,  photographs and full color illustrations. It was co-written by Austrian Philosopher and Professor, Arnold Keyserling -- a student of George Gurdjieff and Ramana Maharishi -- and by Keyserling's student and long time friend, R.C.L., now an attorney in the U.S.   The entire book is here in hyper-text.  You can print it out and give copies away, but you can't sell it or make changes.  A full printed and bound version with color cover, and autographed, can be purchased directly from the author for $50.00 (includes shipping). Just send him an email at ralph@schoolofwisdom.com.   Other publications of the School of Wisdom, including PrimaSounds music CDs, are available at a separate website at SunAngel. -----  CHANCE AND CHOICE  a Compendium of Ancient and Modern Wisdom Revealing the Meaning and Significance of the Myth of Science.

Me: Don't wanna get to get too emphatic about it but what does the fact that the US has low saving rates really signify? It means borrowing is high as lending is (from) abroad; people always have been in line to take their monies to the sachverstaendige Juden, nicht? Nothing new there --- Now, isn't a debt/due interest payment problem akin to encryption pandemoniae? To afford no hackpack any slack your lock must be large and fast (which don't necessarily make it too cumbersome these days). And to service a debt in the sense of simply keeping it on the books in vaster and vaster magnitudes (core capitalistic concept of mass production, narrow margins melding nicely with trendily low interest rates dripdropping usuryfiend jaws all around the place).  Thus old monies save 'mselves from new.

Gem on proper scale and query (again)
Leopold Kohr on the solution to big wars: tiny ones!!!! And I would still like to know why one of my favorite lists (lbo-talk; check via panix.com/~dhenwood) went south without a word. Quote: The great number of proud, democratic and almost sovereign cantons, and the small number of the individual cantonal populations eliminates all possible imperialist ambition on the part of any one canton, because it would always be outnumbered by even a very small combination of the others. for a print-resource-friendly-version see:18-12-reads.htm  If it aint there no more just splice /200/ into the URL ---- Keeler note: I noticed people (responsible for) colouring in Bush presentations are resorting to this colour which, as I just discovered were used by fashion advertizers in glossies reportinging on sex in Hollywood during the late nineties but I claim some credit for popularizing it. Anyways we'll swich contrast for a very special gem of an article by Leopold Kohr: Disunion Now: A Plea for a Society based upon Small Autonomous Units (1941); source: http://www.panarchy.org/kohr/1941.eng.html
Excerps: The great number of proud, democratic and almost sovereign cantons, and the small number of the individual cantonal populations eliminates all possible imperialist ambition on the part of any one canton, because it would always be outnumbered by even a very small combination of the others.<<snip>> The Duke of Tyrol declared war on the Margrave of Bavaria for a stolen horse. The war lasted two weeks. There was one dead and six wounded. A village was captured and all the wine drunk which was in the cellar of the inn. Peace was made and $35 paid for reparations. The adjoining Duchy of Liechtenstein and the Archbishopric of Salzburg never learned that there had been a war on at all. There was war on some corner of Europe almost every day, but they were wars with little effects. Today we have relatively few wars, and they are for no better reason than a stolen horse. But the effects are tremendous. Also economically the advantages of the coexistence of many little states were enormous, although the modern synchronizers and economists will not agree with this since they have got accustomed to see the world standing on their heads. Instead of one administration we had twenty, instead of two hundred parliamentarians we had two thousand, and, thus, instead of the ambitions of only a few the ambitions of many could be satisfied. There were no unemployed because there were too many identical professions which competed less because they were exercised in more countries. There was no necessity for socialism (another totalitarian notion), because the economic life of a small country could be supervised from any church tower without the interpretations (brilliant though they be) of a Marx or Schacht. There was the development of the arts in the many capitals which excelled in the creation of universities, theater and in the production of poets, philosophers and architects. And there were no more taxes than we have now, in the age of rationalization, where people and enterprises have been "economized" for economic reasons and the phenomenon of unemployment has come into existence. We have done away done away with what we thought was the waste of courts and kings and have created thereby the splendor of the dictators' marching millions. We have ridiculed the many little states; now we are terrorized by their few successors. Not only history but also our own experience has taught us that true democracy in Europe can only be achieved in little states. Only there the individual can retain his place and dignity. And if democracy is a worthwhile idea, we have to create again the conditions for its development, the small state, and give the glory of sovereignty (instead of curtailing an institution from which no one wants to depart) to the smallest community and to as many people as possible. It will be easy to unite small states under one continental federal system and thus also satisfy, secondarily, those who want to live on universal terms. Such a Europe is like a fertile inspiration and a grandiose picture, although not a modern one which you paint in one dull line. It will be like a mosaic with fascinating variations and diversity, but also with the harmony of the organic and living whole. This is a ridiculous scheme, conceived for man as a witty, vivacious and individualistic reality. Unionism, on the other hand, is a deadly serious scheme without humor, meant for men as a collectivity and as social animals of lower order; and it reminds me constantly, in all its earnest elaborateness of the German professor who submitted to Satan a new plan for organizing Hell. Whereupon Satan answered with rock-shaking laughter: "Organize Hell? My dear Professor, organization, that is Hell."  -------- Note: Originally published in The Commonweal (September 26, 1941) under the pseudonym Hans Kohr.
