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.
