 NOTES OF THE METRIC MONTHS FROM 52 TO 55 ASWW 




NOT THE FIRST TO RECOGNIZE

Religionists who have managed to steal the state are the winners in the old order, and they will not be the first to recognize that the world is changing or has already changed.

55th Southern Late Lent



EXCEEDINGLY MATERIALISTIC

Cultures that are obsessed by moral rules that concern the body in general and sexuality in particular are exceedingly materialistic.

37.NEY-55th Southern Mid-Lent



PEACE BEFORE OR AFTER THE CONFLICT?

Where peace reigns, ask yourself whether it is the peace before or after the conflict. Peace before the conflict is the situation in which the weak, or those believed to be weak, have always resigned themselves to their being discriminated against; peace after the conflict is the situation in which the strong, or those who used to be strong, have finally resigned themselves to their being equal.

55.SMY-55th Southern Early Lent



THE DAY WILL COME

For all people the day will come that, confronted with the primacy of norm and value, they will have to pronounce their last judgment on the belief in god and demon.

39.NMY-55th Southern Equinoctial



POWER FOLLOWS PROPERTY

Power follows property, and moral power follows moral property.

42.SLL-55th Southern Mid-Yule



'DOGS' and DOGS

Religious speciesists may call their ideological opponents "dogs", but what do they utter and mutter when dogs come to save them from the rubble after an avalanche or earthquake?

54.SML-55th Southern Early Yule



ENVIRONMENT-MINDED?

How environment-minded is a people that sticks to a calendar that is not in any way related to the natural seasons, a calendar on which not one public holiday is connected with nature?

53.SML-55th Equatorial Month



PLANTING THE VALUES OF THE NORM

We should not so much uproot theocentrist religion in order to plant the Norm as plant the values of the Norm in the faith that they will eventually choke the weeds of supernaturalism, exclusivism and extremism.

46.NLY-55th Northern Late Lent



TERTIUM DATUR; TERTIUM NON DATUR

There is a third (possibility) besides positivity and negativity, namely neutrality; there is no third (possibility) besides truth and falsehood.

41.SMY-55th Northern Mid-Lent



CHILD OF TIME

If truth is the daughter of time, then relevance, my sibling, is the child of time.

42.SML-55th Northern Equinoctial



THE DIVINE STATE

The divine state is a stolen state, governed by people whose sense of justice with regard to fellow citizens with different denominational opinions has disappeared under a thick layer of theocentrist callousness.

47.SEM-55th Northern Late Yule



FROWNING UPON FENCE SITTING

Those who frown upon fence sitting are right if the one side supports neutrality and the other an antineutralist or unneutral cause; they are wrong if both sides support something equally unneutral.

54.SML-55th Northern Mid-Yule



BEFORE THE YEAR 1

We must definitely be living before the year 1, but how many years is yet indefinite.

53.NLL-55th Northern Early Yule



THE DELIVERANCE FROM EXCLUSIVIST EVIL

One of the traditional aspects of life is the existence of exclusivist evil (exclusivist ideologies, thought, feelings, tendencies, practises) and the need to be delivered from it.

36.SML-54th Southern Late Lent



TRUE COMMUNICATION

What is needed in true communication is agreement with the world rather than with the belief of other believers.

37.NLL-54th Southern Mid-Lent



BELIEVE, ACT AND LIVE

Believe in truth, act on relevance and live in moderation.

44.NLY-54th Southern Early Lent



WHOLE FLOODS OF BLASPHEMIES

Whole floods of exclusivities, ethnic and sexual and age- and class- and thought-related and so on and so forth, have been poured upon this Earth; whole floods of blasphemies against relevance and inclusiveness.

45.SEM-54th Southern Equinoctial



'THOU SHALT NOT KILL'

A religious injunction is not 'Thou shalt not kill', as many people have believed, but 'Thou shalt not kill', for on theocentrist grounds it is not at all wrong in itself to kill or to murder; what is wrong is to do something that the Supreme Authority has expressly arrogated to Himself.
Monotheist sacred books are full of cases in which that Authority slaughters people or peoples that feel or think differently from Himself, or in which such a slaughter is promised to them.

53.EQU-54th Southern Mid-Yule



THE RADICAL REVOLUTION IN DENOMINATIONALISM

The radical revolution in denominationalism is that norms and values do not revolve around a god, as in theism, or man, as in anthropocentric atheism, but that we, with or without a supreme being, revolve around norms and values at a universal center.

53.SEM-54th Southern Early Yule



ALETHIC MODESTY

The problem with supernaturalism is that it hates so much, except alethic arrogance, and that it loves so much, except alethic modesty or humility.
(Alethic means truth-related. Alethic modesty is the moral quality of being silent or of saying that one does not know the truth, instead of claiming that one does, while telling falsehoods or drawing upon one's own or someone else's imagination. Altho 'humility' is not something to be approved of in a catenical context, unless it serves neutrality indirectly, it can be something praiseworthy in a noncatenical context such as that of truth and falsity.)

47.NMY-54th Equatorial Month



THOUGHT OR REALITY?

In philosophy it is the quality of thought which counts; in ideology the quality of reality. Philosophical denominationalism combines the two: it improves thought to better know what improves reality.

37.NLL-54th Northern Late Lent



AN ABOMINATION

"The way of the exclusivistic is an abomination unto the Norm-abiding adherent. But 'e loves the person that follows after inclusiveness."

42.SEY-54th Northern Mid-Lent



SELF-EXISTENT BEINGS, NOT CRITTERS

We are self-existent beings, not creatures, let alone creationist critters, for we are disgusted by the speciesist arrogance of believing that the whole world, human and nonhuman, would have been created by some anthropomorphic, anthropopathic or anthropoid god.

46.NLY-54th Northern Equinoctial



A POLITICAL PERVERSION

A monarchy is a political system in which the private affairs of a couple of individuals are officially perverted into public affairs of state.

53.SML-54th Northern Late Yule



T-R-I-N-P

Exclusivists of the sexist, ethnocentrist and monarchist stripe say: "T for Tommy, R for Robert, I for Isaac, N for Nelly and P for Peter". Inclusivists say: "T for True, R for Relevant, I for Inclusive, N for Neutral and P for Person".

53.SEL-54th Northern Mid-Yule



WHEN REASON CANNOT IMPOSE ITS WAY

When reason cannot impose its way (yet), naturalists go by the light of nature, supernaturalists by guess and by God.

53.SML-54th Northern Early Yule



ARBITRARY

Nothing arbitrary will last forever --
no muddy 'Common Era' calendar, no 'standard spelling' unrelated to pronunciation, no state borders thru natural or national lands.

53.SML-53rd Southern Late Lent



REACTIONARIES

Reactionaries are birds that fly backwards. They do not care about where humankind is going; they just want to see where they have been.

38.SEY-53rd Southern Mid-Lent



'GOD AND MAMMON'

It is true, 'ye cannot serve God and Mammon', you can only serve the Norm.

46.NLY-53rd Southern Early Lent



WHOLE COUNTRIES OF ONE MIND

Whole countries of one mind exist in spirit only.

45.SMY-53rd Southern Equinoctial



THIEF OF STATE

Religionists who steal the state in order to foist their own religious rules and theist symbols on all its citizens turn their god into a Thief of State.

52.SEY-53rd Southern Mid-Yule



HIGH AND LOW

Those who have searched high and low have not looked everywhere.

42.NML-53rd Southern Early Yule



KITCHEN RELIGION

A religion or other ideology that illegitimizes every form of sexuality except the sex needed for procreation (if any) degenerates into a kitchen religion with all emphasis on food, food and food, or on eating and drinking, eating and drinking, and eating and drinking.
Moreover, and perhaps more seriously, it forces human beings to spend more time on procreation than is good for the Earth, and in the end for humanity itself.

52.SMY-53rd Equatorial Month



DEPART FROM ME

"Depart from me, you fools, into everlasting theodemonism, which was designed for those believing in supernatural promises and comminations."

41.SEM-53rd Northern Late Lent



LET THE SHEEP ...

Let the sheep that leaps over the ditch not follow the flock but the right reason.

53rd Northern Mid-Lent

Until 54.44.5 the above note was inserted at the beginning
of the lists of TRINPsite files in the following form:
May the sheep that leaps over the ditch not follow the flock but the right reason
No-one should visit TRINPsite or a TRINPsite document because others have or have not visited it before. After all, a page may be viewed by one person or a few people for the right reason and by a great many people for the wrong reason.


HISTORY

There are two kinds of people who love history: first, those who want to maintain history; and second, those who want to make history.

53rd Northern Equinoctial



EXTRAPOLATED MATERIALISM

They blame those who believe in nature for their materialism. But what their own creation adds is no more than some theatrical form of extrapolated materialism: a humanlike god putting the physical world together, as strong as a thousand dinosaurs, as male as a stone phallus, and as pathetic as themselves.

53rd Northern Late Yule



THE WHEEL FOR ALL PEOPLE

The Wheel may have been invented by a person of a certain sex, age, color, weight and other such characteristics, at a certain place and at a certain time, yet this does not mean that it has been invented for people of the same sex, age, color or weight only, let alone for people of the same place and time exclusively. All these factors were irrelevant to the invention of the Wheel, and are irrelevant to its being true and useful. In the irrelevance of these characteristics of the inventor and of the invention to the truth and usefulness of the Wheel lies its very inclusiveness:
the Wheel can be made to move and will move for all people everywhere and forever. No human on Earth can claim the Wheel as his or her exclusive property; no group on Earth can reject the Wheel as foreign.

53.NEY-53rd Northern Mid-Yule



EVERYONE AN EGOIST?

If everyone is an egoist, then let us be or become one of those egoists who are pleased to see others have as much as they have themselves and one of those egoists who feel better by also showing consideration for beings that do not belong to their own group, community or species.

36.NML-53rd Northern Early Yule



THE LAST JUDGEMENT

Hopefully, the Day of the Last Supernaturalist Judgement will come very soon. Naturally, everyone should be looking forward to that day.

42.SML-52nd Southern Late Lent



ECLECTICISM

Eclecticism is a self-defeating or parasitic attitude, because if everyone were and had been an eclectic, no-one would have had a source to draw from in the first place.

39.SMY-52nd Southern Mid-Lent



RELIGIOUS WARFARE

How pitiable a sight it is to see pious god-worshipers punching one another on the temple!

40.SLL-52nd Southern Early Lent



EXTREMIST SOCIETY

As the differences in income and wealth grow more and more obscene, those without the billions and without the millions are prepared or even 'forced' to go to greater and greater brutal lengths to capture their fair or equally unfair share of material affluence. It is the increasingly violent predicament of an economically extremist society.

52nd Southern Equinoctial



LIFE

Life is the art of trying to function now and of finishing with satisfaction later.

52nd Southern Mid-Yule
