NOTES OF THE METRIC MONTHS FROM 60 TO 63 ASWW 




SEXUALITY, PROPORTION AND MORALITY

Some people lose every sense of proportion when it comes to sexuality outside marriage and religion, and every sense of morality when it comes to sexuality inside marriage and religion. Such people do not think it wrong to circumcise small children, and to give their children in marriage, and such people do not think it wrong that much older men marry underage girls, even tho it concerns children who are not yet able to choose and who have not yet chosen consciously and independently for the religion in question or for marriage, let alone for a marriage with a particular person.

53.NEY-63rd Southern Late Lent



THE EYE OF 'ER NEEDLE

I will never claim that it is easier for a camel to pass thru the eye of a needle than for a rich person to find eternal freedom from suffering, but i do claim that the rich person who builds 'imself a needle with a gigantic eye will not find eternal freedom from suffering, let alone happiness.

61.NMY-63rd Southern Mid-Lent



THE LAST CONVULSION

The information era is the last convulsion of the truth era. After that the relevance era will follow, that is, the era of truth and relevance together.

40.NEY-63rd Southern Early Lent



NEVER IN THAT EXCLUSIVIST VEIN

Never will i rape truth, and never will i be pleased with anyone else raping truth for me, by claiming that i am the supreme being, by claiming that i am its first representative on Earth, by claiming that i am 'His' only son, by claiming that i am 'His' second son, by claiming that i am 'His' first prophet, by claiming that i am 'His' last prophet or by claiming any other such gibberish in that exclusivist vein.

62.NEY-63rd Southern Equinoctial



TO BELIEVE IN THE WRONG

To believe in supernaturalism is to ignore reality. To believe in theocentrism is to ignore the primacy of norms and values. To believe in theism is to ignore the supreme being or being supreme.

42.SEM-63rd Southern Mid-Yule



'BLISS WAS IT'

At every lasting defeat of supernaturalism it is bliss to be alive in the dawn of a much more natural era; at every lasting defeat of exclusivism it is bliss to be alive in the dawn of a much more inclusive era; and at every lasting defeat of extremism it is bliss to be alive in the dawn of a much more neutral era. And should i or you die the following day, others may repeat these words: "Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive".

63.NML-63rd Southern Early Yule



IT TAKES ALL SORTS

It takes all sorts to make an inclusive world.

43.NEY-63rd Equatorial Month



FREEDOM OF RELIGION

Freedom of religion is the freedom to make up things that do not exist, or to follow others who have made up things that do not exist, and the freedom to deny things that do exist, or to follow others who have denied things that do exist.

63.NEY-63rd Northern Late Lent



THINKING ABOUT THINKING

Show me the people who thought about thinking in the crowd of all humankind.

36.NLL-63rd Northern Mid-Lent



LOCKED INTO A BELIEF SYSTEM?

As a human being, that is, a sociobiological product, you may be locked into the belief system into which you were born; as a person you can make up your mind.

62.NEY-63rd Northern Equinoctial



MEGALOMANIACAL

The idea of an omnipotent supreme being is an insane, megalomaniacal fantasy. And it confuses means and ultimate ends.

41.SML-63rd Northern Late Yule



THE MORE ... THE MORE ...

The more you can exclude for no reason, the more you should include.

62.NEY-63rd Northern Mid-Yule



FINISHED AND READY

Whenever i die, let those who feel sorrow feel joy, for the Wheel is finished and the Wheel is ready.

56.SEM-63rd Northern Early Yule



SEXISTIQUETTE

People who do not discriminate on the basis of sex will not respect any sexistiquette. Rules that promote polite behavior between people are good, rules that promote sexual exclusivism or irrelevantism as natural or normal are bad.

62.NLY-62nd Southern Late Lent



TWO CREDOS

The militarist credo is: 'First shoot, then ask!' The theodemonist credo is: 'First believe, and --only if absolutely necessary-- then think!

42.NLY-62nd Southern Mid-Lent



INDIVIDUAL AND COMMUNITY

The individual needs the community; the community needs the individual.

62.NLL-62nd Southern Early Lent



PRODUCTION AND CREATION

Whereas production is for the greater part the work of the community, creation is for the greater part the work of the individual.

62.NLL-62nd Southern Equinoctial



DO NOT OBLITERATE ITS SELF-EVIDENCE

Never assert that ethics or normative doctrines can be developed independently of a belief in a god or gods, because that is the best way of obliterating the self-evidence of this truth.

37.SLL-62nd Southern Mid-Yule



WHEN PLANNING ...

When planning for years and decades, plan for food and shelter for your family and friends. When planning for decades and centuries, plan for peace and prosperity for your community or country. When planning for centuries and millenniums, plan for a new culture or civilization for the world.

62.NLY-62nd Southern Early Yule



RENDER UNTO THE STATE ...

Render unto the state the things which belong to the state; and to private organizations or individuals the things which belong to private organizations or individuals.

41.SLL-62nd Equatorial Month



A RAY OF HOPE

If there is a ray of hope for humankind, then certainly no X-ray. (The X which stands for (e)Xism, that is, eXclusivism and/or eXtremism.)

61.SMY-62nd Northern Late Lent



THE BOOK OF EVENTS

I wrote the Book of Instruments, the Book of Fundamentals and the Book of Symbols. My siblings will write the Book of Events, with or without me.

60.SLL-62nd Northern Mid-Lent



SUPERNATURALIST 'EXPLANATIONS'

Supernaturalists can explain anything and everything; therefore nothing.

55.SML-62nd Northern Equinoctial



THE FATHERS OF GODTHINK

One of the worst things about exclusivist godthink is that it visits the attitudes of the fathers upon the children.

45.SEY-62nd Northern Late Yule



IN THEIR SHADOW

In the shadow of the steeple and the minaret there are people craving for the All-Brightest Light of extremism.

61.SMY-62nd Northern Mid-Yule



REASON AND FEELING

Reason and feeling need not be separated: they are joined together by the consistency between inclusive thought and inclusive emotion.

36.EQU-62nd Northern Early Yule



NO NATURAL LAND

No natural land was made for you and me. At most it was and is and will be made better or made worse by you and me.

61.SMY-61st Southern Late Lent



'NORMS COME FROM THE MIDDLE'

Supernaturalists may claim that norms 'come from above'. But, just like facts and modal conditions, norms do not 'come from above' or 'from below'. If anything --for those who want to use this nonsensical metaphor nonetheless-- the right norms 'come from the middle', from the central point, that is.

53.NMY-61st Southern Mid-Lent



PROUD TO BE A PLURALIST?

Pluralism is nothing to be proud of; even monism is nothing to be proud of. But the monist who has succeeded may be praised for 'er accomplishment.

61.NLL-61st Southern Early Lent



SPES NOSTRA EST NORMA

The Norm is our hope. Our hope is the Norm.

44.NEY-61st Southern Equinoctial



THOSE WHO (DIS)HONOR ME

Those who dishonor me (will) honor me, for it makes me feel proud to be dishonored by supernaturalists, exclusivists and extremists. Those who honor me (will) dishonor me, for it makes me feel ashamed to be honored by people believing in truth, inclusiveness and neutralness, the values they should abide by.

56.NLY-61st Southern Mid-Yule



DEFEND TRUTH AND SHAME THEODEMONISM

Defend the truth and pay no attention to your possible fear of those supporting the primacy of one or more gods and/or demons over norms and values.

60.SEL-61st Southern Early Yule



AN ISLAND

Science will always remain an island in an ocean of nescience. But it is better to live and die on that island than to drown in lies and illusions.

43.NEY-61st Equatorial Month



PLEASE, NO OFFENSE TO CONTEMPORARY RELIGION

Religionists often pay lip service to the freedom of expression, provided that it does not cause offense to their own or a (closely) related contemporary religion. They conveniently tend to forget that every new (denominational) doctrine, also their own religion at the time of its creation, was and can be regarded as an offense to the old beliefs.

61.NLY-61st Northern Late Lent



SATISFACTORY?

It is surprising how many people or how often people try to come to a satisfactory answer or conclusion when they have not even tried to come up with a satisfactory question.

60.SML-61st Northern Mid-Lent



ETHNIC EQUALITY IS NO INEQUALITY (II)

We are not treated as equals, ethnically or culturally, if the one group of people receive sympathy for their religious duties for a whole ('holy') month, whereas others living in the same territory may not even appeal to their denominational convictions for half a day.

53.NMY-61st Northern Equinoctial



ETHNIC EQUALITY IS NO INEQUALITY (I)

We are not treated as equals, ethnically or culturally, if the one group of people are considered citizens in more than one country, whereas others born and living in the same territory have only one country to fall back on.

53.NMY-61st Northern Late Yule



THEODEMONICAL CREATIONISTS

They believe a theodemonical entity called "God" made them in one day. And it clearly shows.

60.EQU-61st Northern Mid-Yule



THE GOOD AND THE EVIL THAT PEOPLE DO

If it is the evil that men do which lives after them, then only because it is both the good and the evil that people, both men and women, do which live after them.

45.SMY-61st Northern Early Yule



FIRST THE CONTENT, THEN THE LABEL

When you think something is relevant or interesting, put a suitable label on it, if needed. Never start from the label --as often happens--, after which you are going to consult dictionaries and encyclopedias in order to find out what you consider relevant or what it is that you are supposed to be interested in.

47.NLY-60th Southern Late Lent



THE CRIME OF CRIMES AND THE SIN OF SINS

The crime of crimes and the sin of sins in human society is to kill another person on purpose against 'er wish who has never killed another person on purpose against 'er wish, who has never called for or suggested the killing of others against their wish and who does not even adhere to a political or denominational ideology demanding or justifying the killing of persons who have never killed others against their wish.

60.EQU-60th Southern Mid-Lent



A FLAT TIRE

Religion is a flat tire that is being pumped again and again but that will have to be replaced someday.

56.EQU-60th Southern Early Lent



'FOR WITHOUT ARE SPECIESISTS ...'

The Norm of Inclusivity shall make you distinguish the relevant from the irrelevant. And the Norm of Inclusivity shall make you put the relevance in inclusivity and inclusion above the irrelevance in exclusivity and exclusion. And the Norm of Inclusivity shall make you respect all as yourself. For without are speciesists and sexists and racists and all those others who speak in a discriminatory bark and who act villainously accordingly.

60.NML-60th Southern Equinoctial



THE HIDDEN MEN OF POLYGYNY

People in cultures with polygyny (mistakenly called "polygamy") make the standard jokes about sleeping arrangements for a man with three or four wives. They do not tell us anything about the two or three times as many men, dead or alive, without a wife.

58.SEY-60th Southern Mid-Yule



HOOK, LINE AND SINKER

Religious fishes often swallow supernaturalist stories hook, line and sinker.

42.NLL-60th Southern Early Yule



HISTORICAL ACROBATICS

Many theorists who lack the contemporary systematic rigidity or creative imagination try to make up for this with a lot of historical acrobatics.

42.NLY-60th Equatorial Month



A GOD PLAYING SCIENTIST

Some theocentrists complain that scientists, or more particularly geneticists and cell technologists, are playing God. They turn things upside down: it is monotheist religion that creates a Supreme Being that plays scientist, and an omniscient one at that.

59.NMY-60th Northern Late Lent



EQUAL STANDARDS FOR THE SOBER

Children and adults who are never drunk or otherwise intoxicated should be forgiven for doing a naughty thing, if others are forgiven the same thing because they only dared and did do such a thing while being intoxicated.

59.NEY-60th Northern Mid-Lent



THE GOOD OPPONENTS OF THEODEMONISM

Real theodemonists deify themselves and demonize their opponents. But their good opponents have themselves led by truth and inclusivity without deifying themselves and their good opponents only despise theodemonism without demonizing the ones who suffer from it.

47.NLY-60th Northern Equinoctial



MODERNISM AND POSTMODERNISM

Modernism is a label without substance, something like New Age thinking; postmodernism is not only a label without substance but a parasitic one to boot.

58.SEL-60th Northern Late Yule



UNBELIEVERS

If normists are unbelievers because they do not believe in a theodemonical god and/or devil in a theocentrist worldview, then theocentrists are unbelievers because they do not believe in the primacy of norms and values in a normistic worldview.

45.SEL-60th Northern Mid-Yule



CIVILIZATION EVERYWHERE

The polluted canals of supernaturalism and the sewers of superstition cross the lands of this planet everywhere and it requires civilization everywhere to curb them.
