Truth, Morality and First Principles
Socrates was the first known philosopher to link Truth with Goodness/Morality, as integrated universal principles. Following, his student Plato united moral development and intellectual ascent as the path to Timeless Being. Then Plato’s student, Aristotle, emphasized movement/becoming and saw how Action can End with the Good. He also stressed the importance of first principles (axioms) upon which to build knowledge, as an end must have a beginning.(Art: School of Athens by Raphael)
Even during the Classical Era, statism, the belief in government (State Authority), would corrupt the conceptions of Truth and Morality (which we will examine later). In the Medieval Period, Statism found its partner in crime, Religion so that Truth and Morality would be commodities of the Church-State. In the Age of Reason, Truth became fragmented into a specialized field called Science and in the Contemporary Period, Morality would become a convention for social control. As of late, Truth and Morality would become infected with the ancient mind-virus of moral relativism, which these Greek philosophers vehemently rejected. By making Truth and Morality relative and subjective as to deny development and objective reality/standards, the philosophical journey would finish before it began. Truth and Morality could be interpreted in opposite ways, therefore meaningless, contradictory, self-serving, and arbitrary.
Fortunately with the Truth Movement, we have the surfacing of The Occult (hidden knowledge), particularly on the subjects of the Trivium and Natural Law, which have been integrated in the “Great Work” of Mark Passio, built upon by Kris Nelson. These subjects can be used as conceptual maps to help navigate the territory of objective reality and are in many ways the missing piece to Western Philosophy (and to human knowledge in general), providing a framework to understand the relationship between Truth and Morality. (Throughout this article I will be zooming in on different aspects of the Trivium and Natural Law as related.)
There are requirements to correctly applying these subjects that relate to another occult subject called Alchemy. This involves the Alchemical Transformation from Lower to Higher Consciousness to develop the ‘eye to see and the standard to check‘ , as before we are lost and blind identified to the false-personality-ego-construct. With the incredibly difficult inner work of plummeting the depths of our souls, we identify and remove lies (deception, denial, projection, prejudice, illusion) from the ‘eye’ to objectively ‘see’ what is and then develop the ‘standard’ to ‘check’ (know) what it is that is through the differentiation between right/wrong, good/evil, true/false within oneself. Over time, with persistence and care for Truth, we deconstruct and discard our inauthentic-false self to birth the Authentic Self. Concerning this, our Greek philosophers emphasized that the path to knowledge begins with Self-Knowledge.
Individuals in lower consciousness may have no care or desire to discover their True/Higher/Authentic Selves, nor develop a standard in which to discern reality from unreality and so remain lost in ignorance; a blind pawn for Evil in the Spiritual War on the Masonic Checkerboard. Socrates and Plato deemed “ignorance as the root of all evil.” For most, depending on one’s tolerance for pain, a Crisis for Awakening may be necessary to initiate one towards the Great Way (from the Checkerboard to the first step of the Stairway), when one’s errors become too great to deny. Then we have the choice to face our darkness honestly, admitting our false knowledge that is Ignorance to take responsibility; the First Step into the Right in the direction UP. However, if this does not happen to enough people individually then COLLECTIVE CRISIS becomes inevitable (Natural Law).
Let us look more closely at the Trivium and Natural Law, assuming that the developmental requirements have been taken into account:
The Trivium is a methodology to gain Truth with correct thinking. Truth also relates to reality and reason. We can look at Truth in three ways (pertaining to the three parts of the Trivium): as defined as ‘what is’ or what exists/has existed in reality, as the why what is what it is and why it has come to be, and the how things that are work and exist as they are together. The ‘what’ is the OBJECTIVE reality given to us by our sense perceptions, to be properly matched with their identifier-concepts in our minds (reality +/= language). The ‘why’ and ‘how’ are discovered with reason so that one may understand reality through the correct mental analysis (i.e. inferences, explanations). This can lead to conclusions, truth and knowledge beyond our sense perception.
In short: Truth = Trivium: 1. What, 2. Why, 3. How (reality + reason, reason–>greater reality; through language)
Truth is also connected to morality in that one must become good to discover truth; as to be truthful and honest, to reflect reality as it is, to strive to align perceptions with truth and correct thinking are to be good. Morality is the knowledge of the difference between Good and Evil, Right and Wrong, True and False (Law of Polarity) and this knowledge is Truth.
Consider this helpful series from what has been said before we review the axioms:
The ‘tri’ in Trivium represents the three-fold process, three being the most reducible number in a process: beginning, middle, and end (also input, processing, output). While some processes can also be multi-dimensional and nonlinear due to holographic natures and feedback loops (as this above series and the Trivium can be), grasping certain ideas linearly can help us to understand aspects of things.
We come to know, understand, and speak about ‘reality’ (the beginning of this series) through the symbols of language (both material and conceptual [matter/form]). Language should ideally “divide the beast of reality along its joints.” (Aristotle)
First, we perceive (with the senses) and conceive (with the mind in symbolic form) the particulars in reality (objective existence of self/world), and then we can come to have knowledge about them with correct logical thinking processes (i.e. induction/deduction, integration/differentiation). For our purposes these processes are consolidated in the term ‘reason’ (the middle of the series).
At the highest level of conceptual reality (disregarding the ‘Ultimate Reality,’ to be discussed later), the universals are understood by the UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLES, integrated within the Natural Law Conceptual Framework, and can be applied to the particulars (please refer to NL chart, the most important information). This Big Picture Framework (beyond genera) establishes the relationships (i.e. prior/posterior [top/down], cause/effect) of the transcendental concepts: Love, Knowledge, Sovereignty, Freedom, Goodness; and their opposites Fear, Ignorance, Confusion, Control/Slavery, Evil. With this framework we come to understand the positive correlation between Knowledge, Freedom and Morality. The more Right Action we take based on our Knowledge of Right and Wrong, the more Freedom and Goodness we manifest by Law. Therefore, ‘morality’ and The Good is the End in the series as our behavioral output: ACTION!
Now that we know how the process works, let’s go back to the beginning to grow some strong roots:
The correct starting point for conceiving and thinking is based in foundational AXIOMS (first principles). A foundation is in a sense a beginning from which things are built and if there was no beginning there would be an infinite regress; axioms would be prior to axioms ad infinitum. We would not be able to make sense out of anything! These (following) axioms cannot be proven or demonstrated because they apply to all things and it would be impossible to demonstrate all things, but we understand them through reason, because without them reason could not exist. This is how we arrive at the necessity of axioms through Reason.
These axioms (or first principles of Truth and Morality) are:
LOGICAL AXIOMS: there are NO contradictions in reality (something cannot exist and not exist at the same time in the same way) and a thing is what it is (law of identity).
MORAL AXIOM, based in Natural Law, is simply, do no harm. (Different than self-defense.)
The reason for the moral axiom is that harm (which includes the violation of Natural Law rights/Destruction of Freedom) is NOT GOOD. It creates Suffering. Morality is the choice and action of goodness from the duality of good and evil (absence of good); immorality being the opposite. This axiom is also known as the Golden Rule: “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
The logical and moral axioms create the foundation for us to move from REALITY–>REASON–>MORALITY. They help us to perceive (sense-percept-image) and conceive (symbol-concept) reality accurately to gain understanding beyond perception through NON-CONTRADICTORY THINKING so that our actions and expressions are Right, Correct, and Appropriate: in Harmony with Reality. Otherwise, acting from a pseudo-reality in our minds or expressing falsity will more than likely lead to harm (self/other).
The logical and moral axioms should always be conjoined. While logic/reason manifests in our correct thinking about reality, morality manifests in our actions to create reality based upon our thinking and feeling. It is in our actions that either make harm or not. While sometimes our perceptions can reveal to us instantly whether we are creating harm or not, we also need our thinking beyond perception to be able to tell in other contexts when more information than our immediate senses is required. Logical analysis may be required to determine what is moral or not. What we think about and how we think determines how we act; Thought and Action are part of the Triune Self.
The other part is CARE, which embodies feeling/desire/emotion. Care is the driving force behind our movement, as we are driven to perceive and direct our consciousness to what we care about, which reveals our true CARE-acter (character). True Care is our Care for Truth and Goodness.
The Real ‘Axi(om)s of Evil’
Our philosophical history, as we briefly explored, has divided and corrupted these logical and moral dimensions of reality that should be harmonized. In the beginning of the last century, Symbolic Logic took logic to meaningless abstraction, dissociating relations from subject/substance. Morality either became a cultural invention to be endlessly deconstructed (Postmodernity), an elevated feeling of ‘divine union’ (Mysticism), or the superficiality of artistic expression (Subjectivity). But the concepts of logic and morality suffered greatly with the positive-bias of New Age. Transcendence was interpreted as going beyond the mind and as a result, duality, discernment and mental analysis, were tossed to the wayside so that everything would be good, true and beautiful as the default attribute of existence. Perception (alone) and Appearance prevailed, the constituents of False Reality.
With the wealth of information available on the internet, it is possible to understand why and how Philosophical History slit the throats of Truth and Morality to bleed out (like the many animals we eat).Yet we must be willing to do the Work, Within and Without, to uncover hidden realms. When we combine the research and analysis of our left-brain with the pattern recognition of the right, along with our Centered Heart Intelligence, a dark Global Agenda comes into view … one of Human Destruction and Enslavement (Movie Thrive). We may awaken to the fact that we are in Deep Crisis, and time is running out! With (exterior) money/politics and (interior) fear/control, the Social Engineers have been crafting an Integrated Structure of Dark Power, for a long while, through inter-connected banks, corporations, governments, education, media, non-profits, etc. They subverted the Trivium and Natural Law, leveraging their knowledge against our ignorance. By studying the Human Animal very well, they use mind control, social conditioning, and indoctrination, manipulating perception and conception, thinking and action. We have become obedient, immoral slaves, living in chains similar to those we cast upon others before we feed off of them.
Apart from the fact that those in high-ranking power are Satanists, our Culture of Corruption is the epitome of Satanic Ideology (i.e. moral relativism, selfishness, materialism, ego worship), even though most of humanity is unconscious of their partaking, through a combination of mind control and preference for the lie. New Age desired to transcend aspects of our degraded culture and dying out religion with otherworldiness, but like most movements, ended up being mostly co-opted (socially engineered) to trap people into regressive beliefs coated as “spiritual”. Prior to Ex-Satanist Mark Passio, Christians primarily made the link between the New Age Deception and Satanism. Now more are starting to see how the twisting of spiritual truths fits perfectly with the Dark Agenda. While we live in a world of animal and human animal slavery and suffering on all levels: physically, mentally, and spiritually, the New Age would have us believe that good and evil are useless products of dualistic thinking and that “evil is an illusion.” But there is no contributive factor so great to evil than to close one’s eyes and say “it’s all good”. In the words of Krishnamurti: “the loss consciousness of evil is the worst evil,” a truth also echoed by our Founding Fathers and their warnings of Tyranny.
(For this article ‘New Age’ will be a term that will be used to embody pseudo-spiritual ideologies, not so say that there are not valid truths of New Age but that in this context we will focus primarily on the negative.)
Culture/New Age have created their own axioms:
- There is no such thing as Truth and Morality; they are relative and made up.
- Reality is contradictory and cannot be known through Reason.
These are Axioms of Evil (Solipsism) because they will not lead one to knowledge, freedom or goodness but to the opposite: ignorance, confusion, and slavery, reflecting our current condition of Global Tyranny. They are anti-thesis to our evolution as a species and anything the Trivium and Natural Law have to teach us. At the same time, these axioms will be attractive to the ego because they appear to offer the freedom to create reality as one pleases to negate accountability. Yet our misalignment to Truth and Reality will create bondage and negative (Natural Law) consequences because objective reality does exist; it is only a matter of time. The ego can run but cannot hide, and so the ego deception and New Age go hand in hand.
Many philosophers discovered that in order to gain knowledge they had to start their journey from scratch, by doubting and eliminating everything they thought they previously knew. Socrates said “I know I know nothing,” and we need to get to this level of authenticity in order to evolve, as it is necessary to Unlearn what our Culture has taught us, like these flawed axioms. And with the Occult we can go much deeper than the mental elimination of ideas and beliefs, to disembed the Ego from the System. To create a proper foundation, we must start over where the inauthentic self was constructed and split off from reality, which may have been in childhood. Likewise, in order to learn how to think and gain truth, we must regain the innocence of a child, to see and report reality as it simply is with nothing to hide and no taboo to find. To do this we must deconstruct and shed our social programming that allowed our ego to run rampant. Then we can start with the correct axioms to naturally discover oureselves and reality and the Laws that guide it, as we once intuited before we were corrupted.

The connection between children and animals is a more than an obvious one. As children, our love for animals was nurtured by positive socially-acceptable norms, designed to keep evil hidden. This is found in our joy of pets and the love we felt for them and from them, fun visits to the zoo, our enchantment with the animal cartoons and movies, and in playing with the stuffed animals we adored, each with names and unique identities. We see purity and innocence when gazing in an animal’s eyes and their trust for us to be their protectors, very much like a small child. They are full of life with unique expression. Even at the superficial level we take pleasure in seeing animals in art and accessories as they are symbolic of what is good and pure.(Artist: Edward Hicks)
But sadly our innocence would be slaughtered by Culture, when dead animal carcasses arrived at the kitchen table; a Satanic Blood Sacrifice Ritual. Our sensual appetites and physical urges would associate with dead flesh, scrambling our brain; a mind control method so powerful as it would seize our lower chakras. This created an unconscious trauma and fracturing of our Worldview. Meat would be separated from animals and cause (murder) separated from effect (food) in order to morph evil into good. Our identity as a species would be warped as we were told that were just ANIMALS EATING ANIMALS. In the likeness of religion, the concepts of Sacrifice and Guilt would be molested (i.e. negative sacrifice turned positive, guilt associated with knowledge of evil), to cast darkness upon our conscience, flipping the world Upside Down. The moral axiom we originally intuited would split into moral contradiction, before ever being made explicit; thus hijacking our ability to ‘know better’. Psychopathy would be turned into Normalcy. With morality perverted, we would become dissociated from the origin of meat, the rape, torture, mutilation, slit throats etc., our first learned ignorance, as we did not want to know and did not ask. This would make it easier to shut our minds off from other things we did not want to know, as in our hearts we knew something was very wrong about the world. Death would not only be part of our meals, but within us as the Death of our Care. We would learn to not care and eventually the animals we admired and the animals we ate were two completely different realities that could not integrate. The physical consumption of broken reality would make the mental consumption of cultural lies so much easier and political perversion so much more tolerable. Our conceptual lens would be corrupted and the Victim-Perpetrator Dynamic would imprint upon our holographic reality, to ripple outwards and affect all aspects of our lives.

BUT WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THIS!!
Introduction to Worldviews and Language
The Trivium helps us to learn the basic building blocks of thought and language beginning with concepts and words, formed with percepts, images, imagination and memory from our senses. Putting concepts together forms a single sentence to express one complete thought or idea. Connecting multiple related thoughts can create a worldview or ideology. While biology classifies types of physical beings by their physical attributes (plants, animals/human animals), psychology classifies perspectives, worldviews, or ideologies (‘isms’) of the human mind (for our sake these terms can be used synonymously). These worldviews, along with feelings, guide human actions. Some believe we should throw out all ‘isms’ but it would be better to differentiate between correct/lower and incorrect/higher types, as worldviews are necessary to navigate reality. A correct worldview is rooted in correct axioms and constructed with true knowledge, while an incorrect worldview is rooted in incorrect axioms and built with false knowledge. (Grammatically we treat worldviews (its) as a Substance of the mind and may identify people by them (i.e. Christians). Yet, in reality, a person is not their false worldview, it is merely an outlook they hold and can outgrow. However, a True worldview is part of one’s True Identity as Self-Knowledge.)
In this article we will be looking at the diametrically opposed worldviews of Veganism and Carnism. And breaking duality down further, there are true and false forms of Veganism. Here, True Veganism based on Truth and Morality (logical/moral axioms), will be referred, unless specified differently. Meat-eaters attempt to hide behind their invisible worldview to obfuscate reality by not having an identifying concept/term. They can claim that veganism is an ‘ism’, in the negative sense, associating it with (political/New Age) collectivism. Fortunately, activists have created the term ‘Carnism’ to identify their belief system; showing us the power of a concept. New terms/concepts representing aspects of reality, give us more definition to the map, which can helps us to navigate better in the territory.
In addition to Carnism, we will specify a type, for lack of a better term, called ‘Post-New Age Carnism.’ This will describe Carnists in the Truth Movement, some with an interest in the Trivium/Natural Law, who have started to move past the New Age Deception. Either they had been deceived themselves (first-hand knowledge), have observed it in others or as a cultural trend (second-hand knowledge), and have gone back to Carnism or have become more activist in their already existing Carnism. (I myself was a Post-New Age Carnist many years ago, which in addition to my research and development makes me more qualified to speak about them so intimately and honestly. I’ve faced the mirror, that’s why I can shine it.) Similarly, we will consider True Veganism, Post-New Age in its connection to Truth and Morality, both of which New Age generally rejects. (I will use “ism” along with “ist” [Carnist] to place focus on the worldview, in its extreme version, not a particular person. It is important to remember that each individual is unique and will subscribe to an ‘ism’ in varying styles, degrees, and levels; the same with “New Age.” Please be conscious of this language-reality mismatch of sometimes treating an ‘ism’ as an individual to keep the meaning general, not unclear.)
A big part of Grammar and Logic is about understanding Hierarchical Classifications (i.e. genera/species/individual), to know when a term EXTENDS to designate other terms. Under the class of Living Things are Plants and Animals. Therefore the term “animal” extends to “human” as human is a species of animal that from the days of Socrates was called “rational animal”. But animal does not MEAN rational animal. Every species IS its GENUS and is ALSO different as its meaning is more specific (intension vs. extension). For example, a giraffe is an animal, but an animal isn’t a giraffe. In this way humans are animals AND are different from animals by the qualities (differentia) unique to their species found in our mind/brain. (Human is short for HUMAN ANIMAL.) By knowledge of our five senses, it is obvious that Animals are much higher beings than Plants by their material complexity. Unlike plants, animal material contains the parts of flesh bodies, heads, arms, and legs with complex interior systems: nervous, circulative, respiratory, digestive with the physical needs of air, food, water, sleep, warmth, and to eliminate wastes. Animals are willful, transcending the automatic bodily functions within to a command over bodily movement without, as separate beings from the earth and are conscious to move their bodies by their Free Will Choices to interact with the exterior world. In order to do this there is sense perception and mental processes to reflect on perception of the map and territory (i.e. concept, precept, image, memory). Animals live in social and emotional realities as well with the capacity to feel pleasure and pain. And the human animal lives in a mental reality of higher complexity reflected in the Trivium and Natural Law, with the capacity for Truth and Morality…(Image: Tree of Prophyry)
Lastly, we make an additional grammar note, pertaining to the difference between particulars and universals. A genera is a General Concept (i.e. animal) that describes the essence of an Individual Being through a universal, but only Individual Beings exist IN Exterior REALITY. We do not perceive “animal,” but a particular ONE, in which we use a Proper Noun to distinguish, such as Charlie the dog. Therefore, I will sometimes refer to animals (universals) as Individual Animal (particular) because in reality, that is what they are: individuals. It is much easier for Carnism to detach from Animal Horror and Gore through the abstract universal of animal, as a floating idea, when individual, unique and separate lives are being negatively affected. (While the universals help us to understand the essence of an individual in order to know and define it, they should not be confused with an individual himself.)
The Vegan Syllogism:
True Veganism is based on the Vegan Syllogism, another three part process, involved in Logic of the Trivium. Using the correct logical and moral axioms, we can build premises based on our general observations of self/world (induction). Then through the method of deductive analysis (the compliment of induction) we connect these premises to lead us to a conclusion, bringing us to new knowledge. If A and B, then C. (Artist: Raul del Rio)
To harm animals is wrong.
To eat meat is to harm animals.
Therefore, to eat meat is wrong.
In the next section, we will look more at the terms and meanings in these statements, but for now in a loose, but helpful correspondence to reality–>reason–>morality, we can link each line to each of these parts. “To harm an animal is wrong” is the reality, as we observe that animals can be harmed, and should not be, the premise being built off the moral axiom. In order to understand premise two, “to eat meat is to harm animals,” will require some effort to counteract the intense programming that eating animals is a good thing. With our reason, grounded in reality, we will need to gather and process data and empirically connect with the gory specifics of how animals suffer and are enslaved, tortured, and murdered to become food (Movie Earthlings). And finally, our conclusion, “to eat meat is wrong,” is our moral response, when we stop eating meat and then help others to do the same out of moral obligation.
Carnism: Distortions of Truth and Morality
Carnism attempts to stab holes at the Vegan Syllogism, before having to rely on the less desirable route of justification. Because the syllogism is valid (correct premises + correct deduction), Carnism endeavors to re-define the concept “animal” by altering the classification of plants, animals and human animals to distort basic biological realities. (Artist: Sue Coe )
Some will put plants and animal species in the same genera by erroneously comparing the unseen chemical processes of plants with the seen physical movements of animals under the façade of being ‘empirical-therefore-rational’ evidence. This is not only a fallacious correspondence between different scales of reality and genera, it is quite possibly projecting a subjective narrative onto the micro-reality of plants based off the macro-reality of animals. Some have even gone so far to claim that ethylene gas emission of plants under stress is equivalent to the terrified screams of a pig before his slaughter. Their perception of reality has been corrupted by the plant fallacy mind-virus, because to even defective rationality, this comparison would be described as insane.
Sometimes within the same train of thought, they erroneously classify animals and human animals together, to validate Carnism: “animals eat animals,” therefore “humans should eat animals too.” (Notice we put ‘should’ and not can, because we could eat each other if we wanted to; should asks the moral question ought we?) Would it not be the death of reason itself to model all human behavior off of other animals? Shouldn’t our standard be higher being a rational animal? And if this argument is “an eye for an eye” it does not match as we do not prey on predator-animals (i.e. lions) but the weakest among them (farms animals), thus exploiting them most unfairly. While only some animals eat other animals, they do not have the capacity to know that they are inflicting harm at the conceptual-conscious level, whereas we do with our human capacity. Animals and humans are both bound by physical laws; humans, in addition, are bound by rational (natural) laws. These laws can be conceived by rationally, corresponding to our differentia as ‘rational animal’ (rational as potential). If we are to understand these laws we would know that to be as low as the lowest animals (Satanism), is to work against Natural Law to create suffering and negate our Higher Potentials (greater degrees of true care, empathy, compassion and justice).
If we say that the differentia of the species human from the genera animals, the ‘rational’ in animal, is what qualifies for the moral exclusion of animals from the “do not harm” axiom, we are missing many things. For one, humans are not born rational and many do not die rational. Some humans do not have rational capacities, and yet even others with capacities never use them. Nor do those with rational capacities who use them, use them all the time. In the periods and moments of our lives when we aren’t using our brain, we could say we are like animals. When we suffer from illness we are less likely to engage in thought but we still feel pain. And even ‘rational’ has many levels and degrees of expression to its opposite: irrationality and ‘rationalizing’ animal (i.e. false knowledge). This is why ‘human animals’ is more correct terminology than rational animal.
But even as we have detected classification errors, it makes absolutely no difference. Under Natural Moral Law ALL we need to know is whether ‘animal’ is a being that can be harmed or not using our sense perception. And very clearly, we know that animals can suffer, experience distress, pain, and terror; this is enough to verify the first premise of the Vegan Syllogism. (And if plants are harmed too on some microscopic level, this would not negate the fact that harming Individual Animals is relatively WORSE than harming plants, even if BOTH can be harmed. After the world goes Vegan, we would then learn how to live without plants in the future.)
Carnism also attempts to combine the term “harm” with its opposite, non-harm to create oxymorons such as “good slaughter”, “humane killing” and “happy (tortured/dead) cows”. They may separate harm from murder, confusing the fact that abuse cannot happen after death as making death less than harm. This allows them to validate murder as necessary to the consumption of meat. Yet, murder is the invalidation and Destruction of Life, and goes beyond harm to be total annihilation. In some ways it can be more violent than abuse as the most violent act of all. An Individual Animal exerts an enormous amount of energy to fight for his life till the bitter end just as the animal within us would. We do not wish to die in an act of murder. Animals want to live!! In trying to gain some moral redemption, these Carnists focus on improving the abusive condition of animals, yet they still are oblivious to the harm caused by slavery and oppression itself no matter the level of cruelty. The context of Animal Slavery goes unnoticed in a culture of moral relativism that has granted humans the rights to do as we please with animals.
JUSTIFICATIONS of Post-New Age Carnism
While Veganism does not depend upon justification, grounded in self-evident truths, Carnism does, in its failure to invalidate the Vegan Syllogism through manipulations of terms and meanings such as attempts to violate the law of identity (i.e. animal=plant/harm=no harm). Justification can be seen as the opposite of Reason. Through Reason we discover what is right in connection with reality, but with justification we try to make a wrong into a right with a ‘reason’ (sophistry). Anyone can find reasons to support actions, but that doesn’t make the actions right. For example, Eugenicists can justify genocide as “saving the environment”. Using the equivocal terms ‘reasons’ and ‘Reason’ relates to the magic, confusion and obfuscation of words used by the Sophists, pseudo-philosophers and by Politicians, puppets of Dark Sorcerers, from ancient times to now (reflecting The Dark Trivium). (Artist: Sue Coe)
The Carnist Version of the Vegan Syllogism is more like three separate propositions that can be considered their main justifications.
These become false premises for behavior; false reasoning–>immorality. They are:
Eating animals is natural.
Eating animals is normal.
Eating animals is necessary.
Of the three, Post-New Age Carnism asserts the last, since meat being necessary would be the strongest argument of the three; the other two qualities of natural and normal, being culturally-dependent and therefore vulnerable to critical analysis (i.e. war is normal; poisoned worldview).
By necessity we mean “being such a contributory factor that without it there could be no life.” Are the acts of terror and violence upon animals absolutely necessary to human survival? Despite the enormous evidence of the health benefits of the Vegan Diet, there are those who claim they encountered serious health problems from the lack of meat. But the question of both morality and necessity is, as it seems that we can meet our dietary needs with a variety of foods and that there are as many Vegan Diets as people, “was dead flesh the ONLY source for their nutritional needs?”
Giving their incomplete conclusion 100% certainty, these Carnists stopped experimenting and gathering more information. Possible moral solutions were rejected from their consciousness … and still are. The immoral choice was made absolute and some now are strong activists for Carnism. This reveals that Veganism was never a moral issue to begin with for those who were Vegans prior (False Veganism). And the activism in Carnism is more likely the defense mechanism of cognitive dissonance; otherwise silence would be given on the matter. Even in a statistical outlier case, if flesh contained some necessary antibiotic for some strange illness, what person of morality, with the care for the suffering of animals, would hold such hostile contempt towards Veganism? (While False Veganism is better than Carnism, it is still not very good. Not only are these Vegans likely to revert back from the social pressure of the dominant culture, but without Vegan activism, their behaviors make little to no difference in the world at large, as numbers do matter.)
Because Post-New Age Carnism connects New Age beliefs to Veganism, a false premise is assembled into the conceptual framework. This can distort perceptions even at the physical level (psycho-somatic/placebo) as our beliefs about reality shape ‘reality’. (The next section will deal with the many aspects of this categorical error: Veganism=New Age Propaganda). Consequently, justifications through ‘empirical evidence’ can always be discovered when we are perceiving, conceiving and interpreting reality based on false premises. We will immediately associate and connect information to support it, rejecting alternative information. However, even if the justifications have some objective validity, they are irrelevant in terms of Morality. If we could gain some health benefit from eating human flesh, would that make it okay to murder and eat humans? Should the man who needs a kidney steal one from his neighbor? When it comes to possible benefits that can be derived from acts of evil, many could be ‘discovered’. In fact, evil usually has some immediate reward. Yet, do we want Reason to become reasons?
Now, Carnism may claim that Veganism has its own false conclusion and bias, dismissing the health benefits of Carnism; but this attempted ‘table turn’ is inappropriate. Veganism is based on the moral axiom with a conclusion (to eat meat is wrong) based in reality and reason leading to morality (the Good). Understanding when to draw conclusions of certainty or not is part of the art and science of the Trivium. We should be the least conclusive about the perceived necessity of immoral actions, while actively seeking out new data to assist and guide moral behavior. It is usually Fear that contracts us to the foolish choice because we thought that was the only choice available. When incorporating the moral and logical axioms, we must make the important distinction between focused attention, which can exclude immoral information, and selective bias, which can exclude moral information.
With time, attention and care, moral solutions are always possible and are at least something to move towards as we cannot reach perfection in our current conditions. Why is this so? Because this is aligned to Natural Law, also in harmony with Reason. By working on Self-Control, rather than External Control (i.e. control over animals/others), we build our moral character, gaining true Spiritual Strength … furthermore, “character IS destiny.” Putting morality first in the best way we can, eventually moves one forward and upwards to greater levels of being and freedom.
To understand the valid connection between physical vitality and meat, we have to examine psychological and cultural contexts of power. For there is a certain physical vitality that comes from power, and we must be able to differentiate which kind: good/higher or bad/lower. False power is power from external control; control over someone. Our world is based on this imbalanced dynamic of controller-controlled, manifested in politics and money through superiority, war, and conquest. Because humans feel so out of control from their own destiny, they can feed off corrupt power as a way to compensate and be validated socially, spinning the cycle of victimization. The low density and vibration of meat can give them a sense of raw carnal power, to feel like an animal and be like one, while violating them too with afflicted power, thus a false sense of control over their lives within the (multi-dimensional) Meat-Grinding-System. Yet, being able to function well in our “sick society, is not a true measure of health” (Krishnamurti).
In the next section, we shall look more at how Post-New Age Carnism emphasizes rational power in the link between brain and animal fats. There is no greater exploitation of Human Rational Dominance over others than over the innocent animals. Yes, they are innocent because they have done nothing do deserve this. We do not enslave them with brute force alone but breed them through rape in horrific concentration camps using cleverly designed cages, torture devices, and killing machines. And reflectively, we enslave ourselves in our own minds from the conceptual cages and mental killing machines of Truth and Morality.
THE NEW AGE AGENDA CONNECTION
Logic, in the Trivium is the science and art of how we combine (connect) and separate (disconnect) things; this can be done accurately or inaccurately according to subject and context. Since the Vegan Syllogism is infallible and justifications unjustifiable, an even more dishonest attempt to invalidate Veganism would be to combine it with corrupted ideologies so that it can be invalidated by association.
Meat-eaters, who obfuscate their own ideology, may connect Veganism with religion. While moral conviction can resemble religious absolutism, Vegan Conviction really rests on the rightness of reason based on axioms along with a valid and true syllogism. Carnism criticizes the moral superiority of Veganism to keep the focus on people and not on the billions upon billions of suffering animals. For, when we tell a child to not harm her kitty cat, is that indoctrinating the child with dogma or merely asserting moral superiority? Or is that stopping the cat from being harmed, while teaching the child a moral axiom in which to base ALL (not some) behaviors in order to create peace for everyone. By social design, the fusing of morality and religion has distorted our perceptions throughout time, with the negative forms of self-righteousness. Yet, is it religious to end war, suffering, slavery, social injustice, etc.? While traditional religion has corrupted the enaction of these virtues, contrarily, the New Age has discarded the need for virtue at all; poisoned activism pitted against non-activism to yield no Real Activism.
On top of traditional religion, Veganism has been connected to New Age Religion, a ‘religion’ as it is another belief system. For some it is because of the association in their own personal New Age-Vegan ‘phase’. Developmentally, it is not uncommon for people to reject their previous stage in the messy process of dis-identification. Killing the lies in their former belief systems may be transfered to killing the lives of those they eat. Perhaps the core values of their former Veganism were based on some ‘spiritual’ authority, their own ‘spiritual’ self-image, or social approval in a community context rather than about Animal Liberation. And so they ‘outgrow’ False Veganism along with New Age, like it was a fashion trend that went out of style. But regardless of the specific associations, Post-New Age may condemn anything surrounding the New Age in one big sweep in the error of generalization.
But ideologically, New Age embraces all perspectives and can accordingly be associated with both Carnism and Veganism. Specifically, New Age and Carnism support Moral Relativism, in which good and evil are relative and subjective. Post-New Age Carnism claims to have the right to kill and eat animals for personal reasons, while New Age won’t ever ‘judge’ such actions as immoral. This opposes True Veganism, being based on Objective Morality that will take an Absolutist Stand. While some Carnists may claim to not be moral relativists, their own moral contradiction for believing that some animals deserve to live (dogs/cats) and not others (cows/pigs) proves otherwise. On the other hand, Veganism and New Age share positive values such as peace and care. Since the negative trait of New Age (moral relativism) is associated with Carnism and the positive traits (peace/care) are with Veganism, why would we want to throw out the positive and keep the negative? … especially when True Veganism goes beyond the appearance of (New Age) goodness, to instigate actual behavioral change, as opposed to indulgence in subjective fantasies that make no real difference for the world.
In order to understand the problems of New Age and how they relate to Carnism and Veganism, we must understand Gender Polarity, a part of Natural Law Principles (Kybalion). In the individual this is the polarity of the left and right brain/mind (hemispheres), and between thought/mind and feeling/heart in the Self. When the polarity of Masculine and Feminine is negatively expressed it becomes Gender Imbalance, which can manifest in a multitude of ways in self and our relationships. In Relationships that are patterned off Collective Systems, we see the unhealthy dynamics of this ‘passive-aggressive’ imbalance: master-slave, perpetrator-victim, predator-prey, controller-controlled, dominator-submissor, human-animal, etc.
Looking at the Dialectic of Culture, following traditional religion, Scientific Materialism and narrowly defined rationality emerged as pathological masculinity (left-brain). Then a growth of Culture swung to right with pathological femininity and New Age anti-intellectualism. In the same likeness, Post-New Age Carnism grows out of New Age and tends to project these pathological feminine qualities onto Veganism and then swing back to the pathological masculine in order to compensate (False Balance). Yet, going from one imbalance to another is the effect of a reaction. A ‘reaction’ is the anti-thesis of the Dark (Hegelian) Dialectic: thesis + anti-thesis= synthesis, in which an individual is controlled by their environment (thesis). This understanding of human behavior is the greatest leverage of Social Control (False Synthesis). Yet, with Vertical Evolution, one can gain Self-Control (with an internal locus of control) to become Sovereign, and not be controlled from without.
Much as New Age prioritizes group needs to the point of identity loss, Post-New Age Carnism separates from the ‘spiritual’ group, to me, me, me and getting Carnist needs met with “my” freedom. But neither is Free. Doing the right things for the wrong reasons, although better, is not very far from doing the wrong things. With wrong there can be no freedom. Both the need for social approval (i.e. New Age Veganism) and rebellious individuality (Post-New Age Carnism) are not coming from the Authentic Self. The Authentic Self has no social persona, nor desire to exploit free will as independence and does not align to or react to social context but to Truth and Morality.
New Age placed feelings over mind and in response Post-New Age Carnism would glorify the intellect to the point of imbalance and to take precedence over the heart. While New Age went too far into ‘all-inclusiveness’ of perspectives and ideas (mental fusion), rather than balance it with proper mental distinctions and differentiations learned with the Trivium and Natural Law, Post-New-Age-Carnism separated not ideas, but themselves as a species from other animal species. They gave their own species exclusive Natural Law Rights and fell into the (moral/logical) contradictions they criticized the New Age of. Carnists identify to the ‘rational’ part in ‘rational animal,’ to distinguish their superiority and ‘power’ as species (Speciesism). They alienated themselves from their genera, and eventually that alienation will isolate them from other human animals as well. Animal rights activists are labeled anti-humanists (another violation of the law of identity) in their devious dualistic trap of either/or, them-or-us, so that Veganism is an enemy of humanity. (However, in reality, it is lack of Self-Respect that perpetuates the cycle of abuse on other Individual Animals, until they can be transformed with Love).
The idealized primitive and barbaric lifestyle of Carnism became refreshing from the delicate sensibilities of New Age. Yet, these Carnists moved from New Age Fluff to “all meat and no fluff,” from the appearance of goodness (fluff) to the reality of evil (meat)… never finding their way to the higher level: the reality of goodness to discover that the object they were seeking is Substance (Truth) not meat. Substance grounds us to reality; meat embeds us in the System of Evil.
To compensate for the pathological no-hierarchy and extreme egalitarianism of (New Age) Flatland, they readopted the already existent pathological hierarchy of our Dominant Satanic Culture, the culture they sought to transcend with New Age. They went backwards, not forward and never found the proper hierarchy in thinking to place right OVER wrong, true OVER false, high OVER low.
Both of these imbalances in New Age and Post-New Age Carnism hinge on feelings of inadequacies (inferiority/superiority), particularly social inadequacies for the New Age (need for social acceptance), where inferiority is expressed through vulnerable insecurity and intellectual inadequacies for Post-New Age Carnism (need for intellectual validation), where superiority is expressed through the aggressive intellect. Ultimately, both these imbalances need to be healed with Love in order to Move Upwards with Whole Mind Integration to Heart.
Post-New Age Carnism fails to restore the damaged masculinity of the New Age that would lead into True Balance. True masculinity (Divine Masculine) is found in OUR persistence, courage, and determination to END/STOP/FIGHT EVIL AT ALL COSTS, with relentless WILLPOWER and COURAGE, the qualities of the Spiritual Warrior. In this context, the Divine Feminine represents Transcendental Virtues: Good, True, Beautiful, etc. that must be rescued from the Forces of Draconian Darkness. The Divine Masculine strives to liberate and rejoin with the Divine Feminine, through the Movement in his Activism (taking Right Action), like a sperm moving towards the egg to create life, as with Morality there is Life, Eternal Life in fact. (Let the animals live!) While our cultural gender myths have been distorted to psychically imprint imbalance, we still have the potential to attain healthy integration and higher vibration of this polarity through an evolution in our consciousness. (Art: Saint George Killing the Dragon by Bernat Martorell)
The United Nations and Beyond Government
With so much political deception abound, Post-New Age may consider any governmental propaganda to be bullshit without further inspection (when Carnists may not realize that they actually eat traces of bullshit in their meat). Recently, the United Nations, connected to the New Age Agenda, through a Global (All-Inclusive) Religion, is now promoting Veganism. Yet since, propaganda is always a mixture of truth and lie, we must not be too quick to judge. To be independent thinkers we have to be grounded in logical and moral axioms to tease apart the threads. Then, even though our knowledge of government agendas is always limited, we are still resistant to manipulation of evil in its evolving shape-shifting forms because we do not react, we know.
Regarding ethical action, there are two types of ‘ends’ in human behavior: acts that are done as a means for other ends (Agendas) and acts done for their own sake (End-In-Itself). On the Spiritual Level, the Ultimate End is the Good, but without this knowledge, humans perpetuate the Cycle of Karma of one agenda after the other seeking false goodness (as agendas are not true ends, but a chain of agendas). Any objective other than the True Good will not offer true fulfillment or satisfaction to the Self but Spiritual Bondage through attachment and identification to the false self and this will inevitably lead one to suffering. (It’s all part of the evolutionary plan!) Agendas drive personal gain from the 3-D illusion in terms of the System’s rewards, such as fame, wealth, status, popularity, political/social power. As individuals form collective institutions, Social Agendas form with the Ultimate System Prize: to ‘control,’ or be outside of, the system Itself (False Transcendence). Individuals may unconsciously conceal their own agendas, while social agendas are hidden from public view with media diversion and propaganda. From the start, it is obvious that the UN is using Veganism as part of its Agenda, yet True Veganism is an End-In-Itself-As-The-Good. Nothing else comes after it, but a period.
The function of government is and always has been to twist and conceal Truth and Morality to obfuscate Natural Law with man’s law to maintain power by the division of it. Government Agendas commonly impose laws behind the banner of ‘goodness’ (i.e. helping the poor, national safety) to win the appeal of the people that violate Natural Law Rights. While we know that it is morally good to give charity, we also know that forcing people to give to the poor under the threat of violence is wrong, even for the right reason. The UN Climate Change Propaganda follows this same pattern with its proposed laws to save the environment. Beneath the shinny green surface, lurks a more sinister plan of Global Enslavement (Agenda 21). With animal agriculture being far more responsible for CO2 (plant food) than human production (a fictitious enemy anyhow), for the UN to ignore this blatant fact could possibly discredit their Environmental Movement. (Artist: David Dee)
But even if the environmental agenda plays a factor in promoting Veganism, there may be an added layer of deception more ingenious. Those in the Truth Movement would be a desirable targeted demographic for the UN’s mind-viruses as well. And with many Carnists in the movement, consider the possibility that ‘Veganism=Propaganda’ be the distorted fiction they disseminate! Governments mock our parents and the cunning parent will tell the rebellious child to not do something, so that he will. Nonetheless, this type of ploy could become more popular in the Age of Awakening.
The Dark Dialectic of Evolution is the (slanted) Upward Dynamic between Humanity and the Social Engineers, who predict the stages of human progress to steer it in the direction of their Social Agendas. We see this with the historical revolutions of racism, classism and sexism. These revolutions appeared to be about human rights, and while conditions improved to some extent in terms of surface values, because there was no real foundation in Truth and Morality, the Culture was able to be engineered and Human Slavery not truly abolished. When the slavery of blacks ended in the Civil War, British power over America became subverted rather than defeated and a new type of slavery would emerge to extend to more people, wage-slavery of soon industrialized nations, behind the mask of freedom (democracy). The Communist Revolution attempted to eliminate classism for economic equality and it merely subverted an even tighter grasp on the poor by the rich. The Feminist Movement turned women into servants of the system, masculinizing women, and removing the children from their parents to seize their minds. Knowing that speciesism is the next Cultural Revolution, the Social Engineers have it already factored into their Agendas (and pseudo-ends), as chess masters are always a few steps ahead. (Artist: Tony Koehl)
Moving Beyond, this next section is meant to stimulate thought in either reality (what is) or the hypothetical one (what if); we cannot know which. And it does not matter as the following is not supporting evidence for Veganism (which needs no evidence) but to encourage a cosmic perspective on things. For even if these ‘facts’ to be presented are not true, an exploration of the hypothetical realm can lead us beyond our current reality to discover more about ourselves and the world/Natural Law through questioning and role reversal.
Anyone who starts to fearlessly unravel the layers of the Government Agenda will brush upon the Non-Human Agenda, and while this is speculative territory, we might pause to contemplate how it relates to Animal and Human Slavery. With the existence of diverse Human Predators, such as the Average Meat-Eater, the CEO Psychopath, the Warmongering Politician, the Sex Predator Priest, and the Dark Sorcerer, we must not eliminate the possibility of Non-Human Intelligent Predators when we reflect on the vastness of the cosmos and the genetic diversity of life within it. Setting aside our sheer egotism as a Species, what makes us think that we are on top of the Food Chain? There is nothing to say that ‘speciesism’ would not go in both directions, as below so above in the relative (higher/lower) dualistic (good/evil) aspects of existence.
Researcher David Icke, alien (reptilian) abductee and researcher James Barley, (Andromedan) alien contactee Alex Collier, and others expose the Reptilian Agenda. They claim that these Superior Non-Human Reptilians live underground, enslaving, torturing, raping, and eating humans. All of a sudden we cringe when hearing those terms ‘torturing’, ‘raping’, ‘killing’, ‘eating’ applied to our own species; as moral relativism is indeed myopic. These types of beings are said to be bigger in size with scaly muscular bodies, mentally much more advanced and intelligent than we are, so they can, not only dominate and capture the human body but also the human mind. (Painting: “Saint Wolfgang and the Devil,” Altarpiece of the Church of Fathers, Munich, c.1483)
Our species may be so conquered by this Dark Higher Intelligence that our knowledge of them is practically non-existent; after all, an invisible enemy is much more effective. For when such knowledge is presented it is deeply ridiculed that we may consider this to be one of the most taboo topics. But if we observe the master-mind level of organization and management required to implement the Global Agenda of enslaving 7 billion people, we might ask the question with a self-honest assessment of our intelligence, or rather lack thereof, how humans could enslave themselves so efficiently and well. If levels of master-slave exist, might more advanced minds behind the scenes be manipulating the Human Enslavers so they too are encompassed within the System they believe they are constructing?
Strangely, such a Nightmare would be more of a Fearful Symmetry, as the horrific actions of this monstrous predator species would not be very much different than our own, simply one level up! Can we dare to look into the cosmic mirror? While some humans believe these to be the facts and await the Good Aliens to save us from the Bad Ones, simply choosing a meal without a tortured, murdered victim may suffice!
Whether the reptilians are real or not, is besides the point, but asking this question is not: “how would you like being tortured, raped, murdered, and eaten by a Higher Intelligent Species just in the way that you torture, rape, and murder the Lower Species?” This illustrates our moral axiom connected to the Law of Correspondence (Natural Law).
Evolution increases our circle of care and rational understanding of our universal essence in an expanding Tribe of ‘us vs. them’. As the extension of our species conceptually grows to accurately reflect reality, with the increase embrace of our care, we move from Family Tribe to Community Tribe and then ideally to the Human Tribe. But Culture interfered with this by indoctrinated us with a (socially-constructed) Artificial State Tribe of Human Division. This was to create national boundaries for power/control and war/profit. And beyond the Human Tribe we would care about our Animal Tribe. Ideally this expansion of rational understanding and care should occur in our early youth with our natural intellectual-moral development.
The New Age Agenda (and what can appear as Post-New Age, i.e. Integral), may call our evolved selves ‘Global Citizens’ having transcended our State Tribe (nationalism/patriotism) to a Global one. Yet, a wider more encompassing statism is NOT evolution. The Post-New Age Truth Movement improves this with ‘Sovereign Humans.’ However a ‘sovereign’ human-centric perspective does not take into account the slavery of other species nor has the rationality to understand the Essence of human animals. ‘Cosmic Adults’ go beyond a corrupted global perspective and narrowly defined sovereign one to a cosmic-rational perspective, to understand Sovereignty in a Cosmic Context. True Sovereignty embraces Universal Morality, morality and freedom applied to All Species. The Cosmic Adult has grown into maturity from the childishness of species-centrism to have respect, care, and love towards Lower Species and maybe even one day the lowest of them as technology provides.
From the Origin to the End
In our final section, to balance our very logical beginning, we now incorporate mythopoetic and metaphorical narratives to enrich our rhetoric.
While there is a connection between the SOURCE and our Transcendence, it is not in the way that New Age thinks. New Age places great emphasis onto this concept/term as to mean “Ultimate Reality.” Yet we should be weary of the blanket use of this term since it is highly misunderstood. While the concept (meaning) does refer to an actual aspect of reality in its most ULTIMATE form, as even Aristotle, the Father of Logic said that it was of logical necessity (Metaphysics), it still transcends our conceptual framework. The ‘Source’ goes beyond not only material and form but the transcendental concepts (i.e. of Natural Law, Love, Truth, Goodness). Called The Infinite Living Mind by the Hermeticists (Kybalion), it is unknowable and without attributes, so the mortal mind can make many errors in attempting to grasp it, as demonstrated with our bloody history over ‘God’. While True Religion is the individual intuitional realization and connection with the Source/Ultimate Reality, mentally attaching to this concept or not understanding it adequately can bring dissociation, escape and mental virus. We need to focus on the Here-And-Now and the aspects of reality that are knowable, this reality that Matters/has matter.
If we are to transcend then we must first face What Is with Love. And so Transcendence is linked to Salvation, as we must save ourselves from what is holding us back. Until we understand WHY humanity is stuck, we won’t be able to move forward. To problem-solve we must determine the Source of the problem (as Passio relates to the Matrix 2). Although this is in some ways different from the above meaning, it relates. The Ultimate Reality is Law, and the universe was likewise created with its particular, relative laws (Morality). And thus it is Ignorance of Law that manifests our Wrong Choices, as the Source of our Suffering. Taking one step back, we discover where ignorance comes from: Fear. It is our Fear of Truth, Fear of What Is, Fear to Know, Fear to Know Evil and Fear (lack of courage) to Stop It. Fear shuts down, runs away, contracts, hides, pretends, and rationalizes for us to not see the Choice. We are afraid to face our Culture of Corruption and how we have been part. With great courage we must polarize FEAR into LOVE.
Now we may turn to understand ‘Source’ in a slightly different context, more metaphorical, while paradoxically more concrete. We may break down the question: “What is the Source of our System of Slavery,” down to the most basic material level and ask with specificity: “what is the source of energy that that brings movements to our bodies to maintain this System of Suffering?” And the answer of course, in our Carnist Society, is … SUFFERING. Even as the thousands of slaughterhouses and concentration camps are hidden from our view and we are forbidden to see them, when our Eyes are Wide Open we observe that our Physical Power, the input and processing of our Divine Body Temples, truly comes from violence, bloodshed, misery and suffering of others…the output, not much different, welcome to Human Slavery.
And while this appears to be circular logic, in terms of correspondence, it is true that like begets like; the beginning resembles the end: what we put into our lives is what we get out, we Begin with Fear and End with Evil, we think from false axioms we get a false reality, we act immorally we get Suffering etc. When we trace this back to the Source of Human Origin, we descend to our Original Sin. Related to the ‘O’ in Origin is the symbol of Ouroboros; the snake eating its own tail in a circle. All symbols have dual-meaning and we will first explore the dark one. The Circle of ‘O’ can represent the Wheel of Reincarnation/Life and Death; our bondage to Time based on Karma. The Snake/Dragon is the devil or Satan in the Biblical Genesis, tempting our Separation from God, or more accurately the separation from our Eternal Individual Higher Selves. By falling for the Illusion of time-bound existence, we deviated off the path towards God/Source/Ultimate Reality. The exaltation of our false/lower selves and elevation of the material realm (Satanism) would be our error, costing us our Higher Existence. (Artist: Lucas Jennis)
Like with the Ouroboros, consumption also plays a part in the Garden of Eden, as the original sin was a selection in food. For a more accurate symbol of evil, might we replace the Apple with a Steak; we could also see both as the CHOICE between the red and blue pill (Truth Reality vs. Matrix Illusion in the Matrix Movie Trilogy). Hypothetically, we might ask, if we were children, what would we have chosen … the apple or the steak? Being seduced by the devil’s bait (the blue pill), Eve’s first bite into the Steak would destroy Real Innocence and True Care. It may not have been accidental that Eve, the Divine Feminine, was the first to dine with the devil, since evil must crush the Heart Spirit first, before infecting the Mind (Adam).
From that point onward, Individual Animal Life would be turned into a piece of Meat; someone turned into something; the soul reduced to the material. Humans would gut interiors to selfishly feast upon the exteriors. This soulless materialism would turn humans against themselves and each other, through division, competition and greed. The ‘human-being’ as subject would become object to dominate and exploit, a “human resource” to be used up and tossed; a means to an Agenda (pseudo-end) for personal gain, profit and hierarchical advancement. This would flourish in our profiteering system where the faster we can grind soul into flesh, lives into meat, the more earnings we gain; the faster we degrade the Infinite Value of Life to the finite imaginary numbers of $; the more social credits to be made … all to feed the Consumer-Waste-War-Profit Machine. Even if we judge the system by the highest level of success offered within it, making it “Big” (the celebrity status of the Hollywood Matrix), we witness the Ultimate Objectification of the lower self in glory fest of deception. One becomes a profiting piece of meat for consumer consumption to be devoured, chewed, and spit out by the predator industries, used for public titillation, mocked by the unseen masters they entertain in the Animal Human Circus.
In this story we were told that it was a sin to eat the Apple, but as the Steak more applies, might the story have been twisted to support the powers that be? After all, if the apple is the gateway to the Knowledge of Good and Evil, would this not be a Good thing for God to have wanted for us? And would Eve, being the Divine Feminine of Care, not have lead us to Knowledge? From the beginning of time the Evil Agenda has always been to conceal knowledge of itself. Keeping with the snake symbol, our ‘Reptilian Overlords’ may have flipped the polarity so that good would become evil and the reverse, this because good and evil cannot be ultimately destroyed, only manipulated. Therefore, we might re-write a more accurate tale of what happened… rather than eat from the Tree of Knowledge in a Beautiful Garden, we chose to eat from the Animals that surrounded us in the Flesh Factory of Ignorance. When the apple could have nourished our bodies and the knowledge nourished our souls and minds, we put dead bodies into our own along with a poisoned mind-virus (Carnism) into our souls and minds. Thus, we fell into the Age of Darkness where the Knowledge of Good and Evil was sealed into the Arc of the Occult, buried in obscure lands, feared and left alone. But that Age is coming to its End and the Arc is now unveiled… (Art: Adam and Eve by Lucas Cranach the Elder)
We can no longer claim that the Truth has been hidden from us. And there is a scene in the Matrix movie that depicts chosen IGNORANCE. Having awoken from the false reality of the Matrix, Cipher betrays his team and eats a Steak with the villan, Agent Smith consciously choosing Illusion over Reality. Unfortunately this reflects much of humanity, in that the Truth is actively being Ignored and rejected. When we betray Truth, we betray ourselves and the price we pay far exceeds the price we gain from our Self-Degradation.
When we fail to understand how the lower realms harm our higher nature, we destroy ourselves with the ignorance that harm is self-harm. Eating the steak feeds our own lower nature corresponding to our reptilian brain stem. To eat one’s own flesh, like the snake does in the Ouroboros, is cannibalism, yet the flesh of animals fares not much different from ours. They too have skinned bodies, heads, arms/legs, blood, guts, tissues, and organs. To eat flesh represents the worship of our carnal reptilian nature.
Within our minds, eating our tails portrays the self-validating feedback loop between a prejudiced worldview and so-called ‘reality.’ Instead of perceiving “what is,” outside the self, we perceive our projected narcissistic delusion as ‘Arbiters of Truth and Morality,’ making it up as we go to fit our egoic Agenda. This is the Solipsistic Circle of the Ouroboros where we are enslaved to our own Subjectivity and Cultural Embeddedness. In failing to take quality data in from the objective realm of existence, we can only take in our own false imposed worldview, corrupted and falsely constructed. Input and output feed into each other through circular self-reflexive thinking, detached from reality. We literally eat our own minds and gain no new knowledge, and thus our actions are Self-Destructive.
Yet, there may come a time, when the suffering from our Ignorance reaches a Saturation of Sin, and we can no longer run, becoming nauseated by our own arbitrations of truth to desire the Real Thing. With Love, the Guide to Truth in Knowledge, we have the potential to be re-born outside of the Matrix of Control and Illusion, to discard our false/lower selves and worldviews and immoral ways of being, reflecting the positive side of the Ouroboros, who eats not his living flesh but the dead skin that has been shed through his Resurrection … leaving no trace behind. And this can be an on-going Renewal with the Trivium as we constantly shed our false conceptions and mental errors, shutting down viruses, making room for the Living Truth and Moral Knowledge. By making moral choices we become more Good and more Free and so we come to understand why Veganism is so IMPORTANT in ending evil and is an integral facet to our Awakening.
Then we may discover the Good Life of Socrates, the Timeless Being of Plato, the Movement towards End-as-the-Good of Aristotle, to understand what they meant when they said, “Knowledge is Virtue.”

We Can Rise Above our Lower Nature
To turn a Prison of Darkness into
A MULTI-DIMENSIONAL PRISM of Life
To House the Light
Remove the Chains
If we can Desire and Move Towards
Truth And Reality
Beyond the Materialistic Illusion
We must learn to Awaken SOMETHING we have
Never been Taught
Never been Shown
Never Been Truly Given
And that is: LOVE
We must Cultivate Love from Scratch
Making the Void Conscious
Then Filling it with
A Love That Knows No Limits
A Love That Does Not Come from Here
Yet Infinitely Growing
As LOVE is the Complete
Anti-Thesis to the System
Love Transcends the False Design
We must awaken the Heart and Develop True Care
Care as the Driving Force behind All Things
With Time and Attention
To nurture our Interiors
So That we Can Let Go and Watch Die
Our Illusions, Delusions, Projections
False selves And False Worlds
They Hold No Purpose in the Love
Love leads to Knowledge
From Knowledge to Freedom
This Shatters the Prison of Lies
We must endure ‘Legitimate Suffering’
As Long as it takes
Eternity is worth a Speck of Time
Needed for Alchemical Transformation
We are Worth it and Deserve it!
Transmute our Base Metal Interiors into Gold
And Transmute Fear into Love,
Love ourselves more than Ever
Always in All Ways
Then we shall have the Courage
To face Everything in the Cosmic Mirror
The Horror, the Violence, the Destruction
To Know What Evil Is
The Knowledge of Natural Law
To Heal the Consciousness Split
Rightness and Reason
To End Evil
To say NO
To say I AM WRONG
To say This is Wrong
HARM on Culture-Self
Self-Other, Human-Animal Harm
We can Negate and Destroy the Dark Hierarchy of Domination
With the Knowledge of Natural Law and Real Hierarchy
Between the Lower and Higher Self
Through Vertical Evolution
We can Integrate the Left and Right to become Whole
So that Morality is not divided Out by Logic
And Logic not Subordinate to Misconception
To see with Spiritual Vision
To be Complete and Unified
The Dialectic becomes the Synthesis of Self
In Alignment to Natural Law
Instead of Stimulus Response
Information, Processing, Knowing What to Do
(At this point, torturing, raping, killing and eating animals does not FIT! It is Anti-Thesis to Who We Are)
Our Frequency Raises
To the Harmonious Vibrations
Of Time and Number
A Galactic Symphony of Radiant Splendor
In which all Aspects of True Being Sparkle
The sides of a Divine Crystal
Of All Transcendental Concepts of the Good
An Infinite-Sided Platonic Solid of Light
