Diary Blog, 2 March 2021, including thoughts of a societal “quantum leap”

How can society achieve a quantum leap?

The most important thing for our society to do, once it has “cleared the decks” of major problems, backward elements and impediments, is to —metaphorically and, perhaps, eventually, actually— “aim for the stars”.

For practical purposes, the human brain is infinite.

[for “is more”, read “are more”…]

Human beings are still at or near the start of their development. IQ tests are only a guide to the present intelligence of an individual or a people. The “average” is usually taken to be 100. A simplification, of course [see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligence_quotient].

I believe that the high-IQ club, MENSA, takes members above a score something like 140 or 142. It is not particularly uncommon for persons to score well above that level, though such persons are within the top 2%, and in some cases 1%, of the population. I myself was tested (in the 1980s, before marriages and an ocean of red wine) at 156. I know at least one person who was once tested at 169, which (I think) is somewhere towards the top of the useful scale, though I am no expert in these matters.

The figures can only be taken as a rough guide to reality. According to the Wikipedia article cited above, persons in “professional and technical” occupations average, supposedly, around 112, while persons who are medical doctors, lawyers etc score an average of 125.

It is often mistakenly thought that a score above some set figure indicates “genius”, whereas in reality “genius” imports what Wagner, in response to a question about his own genius, called “universal currents of Divine thought“.

One sometimes sees young persons whom the popular Press describes as having “genius” IQ. Their strong suit is usually mathematics. A number of years ago, a young Jewish girl was one such. She entered Oxford University at age 12, having passed the entrance requirements at age 10. She is now a professor in Israel. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Lawrence

Such people rarely take a leading role in society, either because they have no interest in doing so, or because their mentality is narrowly-focussed, or both.

As Valentin Tomberg impliedly noted in one of his books, such people have often achieved capabilities beyond the norm precisely because they have abandoned general growth in favour of a narrow and specialized advance. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meditations_on_the_Tarot

When we talk about society in general, we talk of a broad advance (or decline) across the board. It is well known that Oriental ethnic groups, especially Chinese and Japanese, have a high average IQ. Northern Europeans too. Some ethnic groups, particularly many sub-Saharan African ones, have a markedly low average IQ.

This is not a (no pun intended) black and white issue. Even the Wikipedia overview [see above] outlines some of the uncertainties and complexities.

There is also the point that mere intelligence is not everything. “Emotional intelligence”, often called “EQ”, is also of importance. A common mistake is to imagine that morality, compassion etc are “add-ons” to intelligence. Not so. In our present age, the two are distinct, but to imagine that evil-doers are generally more intelligent than the well-intentioned is an error.

Rudolf Steiner spoke about this issue, and about how the karmic consequences play out. See https://www.amazon.co.uk/Karmic-Relationships-1-Esoteric-Studies/dp/185584267X.

Valentin Tomberg [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg] examined the good/evil and high intelligence/low intelligence binaries in some of his work. He also noted, as did Steiner, the eventual appearance on Earth of two opposed groups, which would become opposed cultures, civilizations, and then races, one evil, one good.

Let us ask, as an exercise in ideas, what could we do, in a circumstance where we have the power to choose, to create a higher societal form.

For the purposes of this exercise, I am assuming that the most unpleasant and backward groups in present UK society are no longer present.

The starting point must be the educational system, which is obviously not working. A simplistic view would be to say “replace present State and other education with Steiner (or other) education”. My problem with that would be that, from what I have heard, even Steiner education is by no means perfect.

However, there obviously needs to be considerable reform of both school and university education. The whole “degree” and “master’s degree” and “doctorate” system should really be junked, as no longer fit for purpose.

“Education” should not be merely a matter of stuffing heads with facts (important though that can be); still less, a matter of stuffing heads with propaganda (often false). It should be a matter of general, including moral-ethical, upbringing, with the aim of allowing to blossom each child’s capabilities and talents for the ultimate good of society.

Institutes should be established, which would have the specific aim of increasing the cultural and intelligence level of the people. A great deal has been learned in the past century about how to increase intelligence in the short-term: diet, music etc.

During the 12-year currency of the German Reich, there were institutes established to study esoteric matters, as well as history. The best known was SS-Ahnenerbe [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe].

There was a generally spiritual as well as practical side to German National Socialism.

Even today, there is considerable interest in SS-Ahnenerbe, and later developments.

While it would be excellent to establish an institute such as SS-Ahnenerbe in the new UK state, the Ahnenerbe’s focus was mainly on the past, whereas for me the orientation has to be towards the future.

We already have institutes of, inter alia, psychology, sociology, philosophy. However, some studies are considered the realm of cranks, and any academic taking an interest in what might be called “X-files” matters will be cold-shouldered at best, as happened to Rupert Sheldrake: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Sheldrake; https://www.sheldrake.org/.

We need to study, on a more rigorous basis, astrology, parapsychology, hypnotism, magic, telekinesis etc.

The X Files is fiction, but, like The Protocols of Zion, at least loosely based on fact. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_viewing; https://www.cia.gov/readingroom/document/cia-rdp96-00792r000400100001-2; https://www.cia.gov/readingroom/document/nsa-rdp96x00790r000100030041-0; https://www.cia.gov/readingroom/document/cia-rdp96-00787r000500420001-2.

A new society can be more than just an administrative and economic unit; it can be an entity that takes its evolution into its own hands and quickens it. The aim: higher evolution. A super-race, with capabilities that would seem to us, today, to be superhuman.

Well, I blogged about that yesterday. No wonder Fleet Street newspapers (and the msm in general) were so uncritical when Blair and his regime (eg the egregious and fairly ghastly “Mo” Mowlam) concluded “peace” with the IRA (which despite still being able to set off bombs and rockets, had essentially been defeated militarily by 1997).

Quelle surprise: “EU…mirroring Israeli model“…

Well, there might have been real resistance, but in fact there was almost none. Meanwhile the “Great Reset” plan of the international cabals continues to be implemented. (nb. I think that tweeter “@PaulWaddington3” means “defiance“, not “defence“).

Just one more symptom of the madness of the present day.

I wonder whether someone would like to do a similar graphic, though more complex, of the UK, taken over slowly since the late 19th Century. The graphic would show infiltration into business, the legal professions, politics, the mass media and other areas, including rental property (both commercial and residential).

Keir Starmer is not himself a Jew, but he is married to one (a property lawyer), and their children are being brought up as if full-Jewish, including the Jewish supremacist religious holidays. In a word, Starmer is just a puppet.

As I have said many times before, the international cabals know that the next significant year in the 33-year cycle is 2022. It will be the most significant since 1989, which was itself the most determinative since 1956.

That cycle, and 2022 as the next really important year, is why everything seems to be moving so quickly now— the worldwide virus “crisis”, the “black lives matter” nonsense (in the still-majority-white countries), the endless blacks and browns on every TV show, every TV ad etc in the UK, USA and elsewhere. The Great Reset and also the Great Replacement, in accordance with the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan.

Diary Blog, 6 January 2021, including a few thoughts about both James Mason and the “Three Wise Men”

Prayer for the Day, the Three Wise Men, and James Mason

Prayer for the Day, Radio 4’s ludicrous and platitudinous “god slot”, broadcast daily at about 0540, once again hits comedy gold. Chris-Someone, with a possibly Indian surname that I could not catch, tells the assembled listeners (though quite subtly, not expressly) that the so-called “Three Kings” or “Three Wise Men” of Biblical legend (mentioned in the Gospel of St. Matthew) were equivalent to the present wave of “refugees” (migrant-invaders), i.e. people who deserve or at least should be proffered our hospitality.

Leaving aside the politically-correct 2021 gloss, the “Three Wise Men” have proven to be a puzzle to historians as well as theologians. Wikipedia has this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_Magi.

It has even been suggested (though as propaganda-art rather than serious religio-historical exegesis) that the “Three Kings”, transposed into the 20th Century, might be officers of the SS! See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gottfried_Helnwein#References_to_the_Holocaust.

[Gottfried Helnwein: Epiphany I– Adoration of the Magi; 1996]

Officers of SS-Ahnenerbe? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnenerbe.

The main SS figure in the painting looks rather like James Mason [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Mason]. Was that deliberate? Mason’s political views seem to have been obscure. There are a few faint indications, though. He was a conscientious objector during WW2, and the basis for that is (as far as I know) unknown. There is no known religious reason: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Mason#Second_World_War.

Also, James Mason was very keen, after WW2, to play the part of Rommel, in the celebrated film, The Desert Fox [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Desert_Fox:_The_Story_of_Rommel], though Rommel is, of course, famously (though perhaps inaccurately) thought of as “anti-Nazi” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erwin_Rommel#Relationship_with_National_Socialism].

In fact, Hitler did tolerate persons in high positions who were at least ambiguous in their views, so long as not proven to be actual traitors. Canaris was another example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_Canaris.

Not (presumably) to be confused with another and more obviously political James Mason: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Mason_(neo-Nazi).

Like Hitler, James Mason the actor was very interested in architecture, having been awarded a First in Architecture from Peterhouse, Cambridge, at a time when a First was worth something.

Reverting to the Three Wise Men, it has been said that they were the representatives on Earth of the three main types of practical occultism (Hygienic, Eugenic, and Mechanical). Valentin Tomberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg] made that claim in his Anthroposophical Studies of the New Testament and other works.

An interesting subject, worth looking at.

Yes, but the population of the UK, USA, world, is far more numerous now.

Interesting. I have blogged previously about the situation historically in the Soviet Union, where from 1936-1989 private plots (from tiny strips of garden to about 2 acres at maximum in some oblasts and republics, particularly in Georgia) produced at least 40% of all fruit and vegetable production despite being less than 4% of the country’s productive land area.

In a country such as the UK, micro-production of food cannot be the whole answer, but it can be a significant contributor, and also uses almost no transport and storage facilities. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_garden; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Household_plot

What Peter Hitchens forgets is that most MPs are in what even now are “safe seats”. Yes, if such MPs were each to get 5,000 or 10,000 letters from actual constituents all demanding an end to the “panic” measures of the “panicdemic”, they might sit up and take notice. As it is, even after Hitchens’ best efforts, they will each get a few hundred at most, which will not affect them in the slightest.

Naturally, as a constitutional purist, Hitchens wants to believe in a peaceful and reasoned transition to or return to actual “democracy”, but that is pie in the sky in a situation where corporatized msm propaganda is easily manipulating (mainly) uneducated, cultureless and unthinking rabbit-plebs.

Ah…seems that Hitchens agrees with me, at least in part:

Yes. Naturally, people think that it stands to reason that if human interactions are reduced, as in “lockdown”, virus transmission must also be reduced. However, if people are confined together in small houses and flats, as many British people are, that alone may increase transmission, in view of the fact that outside contacts cannot be reduced to zero.

Jewish privilege?

Europe needs a cultural purge. The world needs a cultural purge. We know where to start.

God, how sad. A 150-year-old tree, with its neighbours, it seems, felled so that more hutches for immigrants can be built. I have never seen that particular tree, but feel sad when any tree is felled or cut back, even if for better reasons, such as coppicing. As Chekhov wrote (not sure where, offhand, not I think in The Cherry Orchard, maybe in Uncle Vanya), “there are men to whom a tree is sacred“. It may even have been in Gorky’s book Literary Portraits, where Chekhov is quoted several times, Gorky having been well-acquainted with Chekhov.

Trees, even when few in number in an area, even when solitary, add so much to human perception, to the whole feel of an area, or a street, or even an individual house and garden.

This is no longer just “infringement of civil liberty” but straight tyranny, and if the police act as the goons of the tyrants, then they themselves deserve to be treated as tyrants or goons thereof.

“Wonderful” might be going too far, but still generally better than today. Amazing to see how empty of traffic was London Wall in 1966.

I recall going to London one Saturday in 1970, I believe, with a friend from school. We wandered in, out of curiosity, to a small gallery in Jermyn Street. The door to the street was open. The day was hot. We were just admiring some Old Master painting when the (?) young owner came in. A very relaxed Old Etonian type. Instead of clearing us out, he was very friendly and polite, and told us a little about the painting, before we left to explore further. London had more character then, and was still overwhelmingly an English city.

Oh, no! (see below)…

Not that utter shite again! This is an Orwellian fake communitarian North Korea-lite cringe-fest and virtue-signal Twitter-fest. The public services clapping themselves, just at the time when they offer the British people less than they have done for a century. That, and scared rabbits in muzzles, clapping because they feel socially-pressured to do so.

The whole thing is a disgrace; absolutely stupid.

I sincerely hope that everyone will boycott this stupid System “clapathon” (again).

As for “@AnnemariePlas”, I think that that was the idiotic woman who started the first “clapathon”. Danish, I think. Ah…just looked her up on Google. Dutch.

Despite her Twitter and Facebook (etc) activism, despite her “clapathon” nonsense, only 730 Twitter “followers”. Even I had 3,000 by the time the Jews had me expelled, and were I still on Twitter now, 2-3 years later, that would probably have been 6,000 or more.

Nonsense people such as Caroline Criado-Perez are bad enough. Here’s another one trying to make a career out of pointless “activism”, and on a risibly poor level.

I see now that Annemarie Plas tried to get a Christmas bell-ringing thing going too:

Best idea is to ignore this silly woman.

Storming of the U.S. Capitol

Amazing scenes. What strikes me is that at least some Americans have begun to think out of the box. It may well be that, according to the antiquated system of voting etc, Trump lost. I don’t take a lot of interest in Trump anyway. What interests me is that at least some Americans have thrown out the whole concept of “well, we got 49% and the [other] unwashed got 51%, so they win, and winner takes all.

In the UK, we see that the majority of the voters are either scared stupid manipulated rabbits, or non-Europeans of various kinds. So what if that “majority” gets a majority of seats in “Parliament”, a result of a manipulated, unfair, ridiculous voting, electoral, and overall political system? Screw that!

Closing down a fairly mainstream radio channel (its YouTube channel) was too soon, or a step too far, for now. Soon it will not be.
