the meditations of Shivastus Solomonicus from the Last Organon
As I observed the world falling apart in it’s last years I reflected on my almost 1,000 years of life and the Wisdom that I had accumulated and I aspired to save the cream of the human race from being dragged down by the dregs. It occurred to me that the mental faculties of the human should be perfected and their actions harmonized with their sapiens and not their emotions. Just as in Martial Artistry one removes any form of resistance to oneself in order to move speedily and efficiently for one’s own survival and just like in philosophy one tests one’s soul for self-referential inconsistencies and removes them this process must be emulated and repeated everywhere.
Action should be bound to reason and not to emotion. Emotion causes sympathy, charity, mercy, doubt. It was sympathy for stupidity and failure that caused the downfall of earth, and the destruction of the greatest hope on the planet for mankind. There should be no sympathy with error, we should not reward failure, we should not punish success.
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need”
Does this not create disparate impact in favor of the needy? Does this pattern not make failure a virtue? Take into account the acquisitively mimetic nature of the human animal. Will the worst among them not copy the behaviors that they see being rewarded? until the few that have genius and create value are enslaved by the ignorant and gluttonous?
Perfecting one’s reason and soul and constantly testing it against one’s results in reality, one should not hesitate or doubt to act on the good that one perceives. One should immediately act on what one knows to be good and true. Ignorant and emotional people don’t hesitate to act on stupidity and evil why does reason hesitate? Why does evil have it’s way in the world and righteousness begs for its existence? If reasonable people were unreasonable in action and unreasonable people reasonable in action the world would be perfect. Why is the venom of the 3 serpents of doubt, cynicism and sarcasm not turned on themselves, let these serpents eat themselves. Purveyors of unwisdom and Worshipers of anti logic, forcing people who have earned their rewards to squander them on others that have failed. Why do the failures not make themselves like those that are succeeding?
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. ~Maimonides
Which is the greater gift? the greater charity? If I reward failure do I not have more failure in the world? in the future? If I open a Keg of Barley Wine and throw sugar into it does it not awaken its appetite and come alive and explode?
No, this will not do, the mercy and the charity of the mother doesn’t extend to a grown adult. Previous cultures limited the authority of women to a certain age and then after that the child was under the authority of the father. The father cured the emotional and mental diseases and made him acceptable to the world, initiating him into reality, just as the umbilical cord is removed mercy and charity have their limits and do not extend to psychosis and the right to be insane. It is an appalling abomination to see a grown person who still reasons as a child and appeals to mercy and charity, and these people should not have equal voices.
The son should act on the father’s wisdom, not appeal to the mother’s mercy. Nothing else is sustainable. When survival is easy people forget this simple principle. Easy living is the exception not the rule. Everything becomes clear when the need to survive is present. Nature and the Universe are not pleasant places, and pleasant environments are created, they are temporary and artificial and they depend on people working together in harmony and reason participating towards the same end. You don’t allow thieves to enter and plunder all of the good that you have created.
