The father principle says to the mother principle
I know what I am doing.
You don’t know what I am doing and you are inducing that I don’t know what I am doing.
You have forgotten to account for the fact that you are a idiot.
You need to subtract your judgments and interpretations from the equation.
Lynn: You channeled this brilliant piece a few nights ago I wanted you to expound upon what it means symbolically and in the realm of the occult.
Joxua: Well, as you know I am personal friends with Lon Milo Duquette and I happen to know a little bit about Kabbalah. One of the central texts of which is the Zohar which deals entirely with the topic of how light/wisdom comes into the world or is prevented from coming into the world. This pattern is so deep and all encompassing its difficult to know where to begin. This pattern happens in relationship of any kind. It happens inside the individual, it happens in politics, in religion, in the family, everywhere. These three principles are part of the psyche.
To quote Deborah Tannen, the mother “ventriloquizes” which means she turns the baby’s emotional gobbledygook into words so that the father can know what the child is thinking and she tempers the father’s voice so that it is not too harsh for the child. The mother principle acts like the messiah, a go between, a liason, between god and man. But she runs the risk of usurping the masculine voice and corrupting its message. Wisdom comes into the world when the message between the father and the son is uncorrupted, when reason and action are married and not attenuated by fear or puritanical pursuits or blocked by moral authority.
The mother principle presupposes pleasantness which is unnatural especially from the perspective of the father who is in contention with the war of all against all, but pleasantness is necessary for the survival of the child, which is necessary for the survival of the species. The mother will often protect the child’s aberrations along with the child’s feelings which means the child grows up with mental and emotional diseases if the authority of the mother is not checked.
The father wants the child to be in relationship with reality as it is and wants the child to relate functionally towards society.
What we see happening in the United States is that we do not have a passage into adulthood which ends the authority of the mother. Grown adults are children, they constantly beg for mercy and charity appealing to the authority of the mother. Women divorce their husbands so they don’t have to listen to them but they still extract a fee from them while indoctrinating their children into the hatred of masculinity and the worship of femininity. Thus usurping sapiential authority and preventing wisdom from entering the world, the light of reason.
The same pattern happens inside every individual logic and reason are difficult and painful. There is no wisdom without sacrifice, but we coddle our emotions and we protect our mental and emotional diseases, creating relationships more quickly on their account than we do ally ourselves with our better angels.
Lynn: Oh my god, that what you mean when you say the disease is in relationship with itself through us!
Joxua: Yes, if you think about the concept of demonic possession the way in which people form relationships with one another makes it seems much more plausible. There is a force in the world that hates wisdom and rises up against it to thwart it. Light cannot be brought into the world by one person alone or without struggle which is why God does not accept the worship of cowards, weaklings or idiots. Their worship is idolatry because they don’t know God and you can’t love what you don’t know.
Lynn: You have such a unique perspective I wanted to talk to you about this Florida case that everybody seems to be obsessed with. So what do you think about it?
Joxua: The way we handle race relations in this country is like a pendulum. One group gets to punish another group for crimes of the past or crimes that somebody else committed. Opinions can be invalid and ignored or not allowed to be voiced in the first place because of the opinion or the source of the opinion. If its not hip or PC or pleasant you are not allowed to say it and you’re not suppose to be thinking it. I call it the pleasantness fallacy. We can’t have an honest discussion when we are not allowed to bring up unpleasant topics and if our opinion is preemptively rejected we have no reason to participate with anybody else’s solution.
Lynn: What is your opinion on Trayvon Martin?
Joxua: I don’t really know enough about him to have an opinion. If I had an opinion it would be based on superficial aesthetic snap decisions and it would be informed by my own personal bias. He seems like a normal enough kid to me and what happened to him saddens me but I don’t think he was without some culpability.
Lynn: How do you feel about Zimmerman?
Joxua: I think he is an overzealous, beady-eyed, little fuck. I have a saying “It is not that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely it is that where the corrupt mind perceives power it reaches for it eagerly. Another uncorrupt person will perceive responsibility where the other perceives power and reaches for it slowly. It is interesting that Zimmerman wanted a scenario just like this, but he did’t think beyond the actual event. He wanted to force his will on somebody else, but he didn’t want the aftermath. There is an old saying “You have the rights to your actions, but not to the results of your actions.” Zimmerman wanted to prove himself to the police and in the form of the conquest, he demonstrated that he was unfit to be a policeman, but his behavior was what he thought they would approve of which shows his perception of the police not as protectors and servants but as violent, intrusive overlords and this is the kind of people that are attracted to being police.
Lynn: What do you think about the stand your ground laws?
Joxua: I think we are likely to see more of them when the economy is this bad there is more crime and less money for police so authority has to be given back to the people. You should be allowed to be tribal, self-interested and suspicious in your own neighborhood. We are likely to see more instances such as this. When there is no money for a structure of authority to govern then people must govern themselves. There were seven houses robbed in Zimmerman’s neighborhood so he wasn’t being just selfish for himself he was being concernful of his neighbors however misguided his actions were.
Lynn: What do you think of President Obama’s voicing his opinion?
Joxua: I find it interesting that Cornel West likens Obama to Zimmerman for his decisions in America’s wars. Strong words from Cornel West he’s really getting his parr hesia on. I love my brother Cornel West. I personally think Obama overstepped his boundaries as a president expanding his sense of self to include Trayvon saying things like Trayvon reminds him of himself at that age and Trayvon looks like the son that he’s always wanted. He has basically thrown himself into the fray and faked a foul. Now Zimmerman didn’t just shoot a wanna be gangster that was beating him unconscious he shot the president as a young man or he shot the president’s son.
Obama is not thinking like or acting like the president. He hasn’t transcended his attorneyness. He is acting like a propagandist and throwing his weight on one side. He is essentially throwing gasoline in a fire. He is being divisive. The president sets the precedent. Obama should be thinking like a judge and not like an attorney. He should be unifying the nation not taking sides in polarizing debates.
Lynn: I know you voted for Obama twice. I am wondering how you feel about it now.
Joxua: I think he is showing some pressure under the stress. I am really disappointed with how he has proceeded on this topic. I still don’t feel that the other presidential options were any better. I don’t think that the president has as much artistic control as other people think the president has with they moneyed and political forces that he has to contend with I don’t think he can control what happens but he can influence the sequence of events in which things happen.
Lynn: Thank you for your input.
