The Weaponized Dialectic & How to Neutralize It

Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was the philosopher who discovered that society progresses through a series of dialectics, which he termed thesis (problem), antithesis (reaction to the problem), and synthesis (the alchemical solution to the problem). Marx later took this concept and made it a weaponized tool of manipulation, whereby a person or group could create engineered (fabricated, synthetic) dialectics in which they could steer a population to a predetermined location. The […] Read more »

The Trivium, the Dunning-Kruger Effect, and Intellectual Self-Defense w/ Dylan Moore

Dylan Moore from the Volitional Science Network and I had a discussion on the Trivium, the Dunning-Kruger Effect, and how to use intellectual self-defense with those displaying the Dunning-Kruger Effect, which is his specialty. If you’d like to hear a thoughtful conversation, feel free to check it out.   Follow Dylan Moore at the Volitional Science Network: https://www.youtube.com/user/CrazyVysty Here’s the video where I first discovered Dylan, and where I learned […] Read more »

Pro-Vaxxers, Herd Immunity, & Nietzsche’s Herd Morality

I have observed that pro-vaxxers (not doctors, pharmacists, scientists, etc, but their religious adherents and believers) behave in a similar manner as collectivists. This is what Nietzsche termed “herd morality”, which is the morality of the weak and the envious; they gather together in groups, and in their envy attack competent/strong individuals with their perceived collective strength. It’s essentially the mob mentality, also known as the crucifixion of reason. I […] Read more »

Crash Course on the Fundamentals of Defense Against Manipulation

The exact breakdown of the line which separates win-win interactions from win-lose interactions. One of the big questions of philosophy I never see people dive into is when it is NOT time to argue properly, or when to stop worrying about how to argue. This is not an overview of philosophical reasoning and the breakdown of how deductive arguments work. This video contains a crash course Fundamentals of intellectual self-defense […] Read more »

The Two Types of “Persons”

According to Blacks Law Dictionary, 2nd Edition, 1910, there are two types of “persons”, artificial and natural. Those who identify with an ideology, aka an ideologue, are an artificial person, and those who have done the self-reflection and inner work necessary to emancipate themselves from unnatural ideologies and systems are natural persons. We’re either subject to the law of reason (natural law), or to the laws of men; it’s our […] Read more »

Jordan Peterson Responds to Angry Letters from Student Critics

Jordan Peterson on the mindless #NPC‘s who repetitively spew forth their ideology without actually having thought themselves to their own conclusions. “People don’t have ideas. Ideas have people.” ―Carl Jung We’ve created an integrative methodology called “the Unity Process“, which combines the Hermetic Principles (Natural Law), the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and the Emotional Freedom Techniques (meridian tapping)—into an easy to use system that allows people to […] Read more »

Why Is God To Be Found Through Rationality?

Everything that takes us away from God is frivolous and irrational. Everything that brings us towards God is non-frivolous and rational. Not because God is boring but because God is reasonable, logical and even simple. However, because our world has become so infected with frivolity and irrationality, God remains lost within it. As long as ‘why’ does not exist in our experience God will remain misunderstood, unseen and unknown to ourselves. As long […] Read more »

On Sovereignty | Deep Code Experiments: Episode 10

This is an excellent and thought provoking discussion. Jordan Hall’s three aspects of sovereignty are basically the first three of the Liberal Arts, also known as the Trivium; grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Grammar corresponds to knowledge, logic corresponds to understanding, and rhetoric corresponds to wisdom; knowledge asks what, where, when, and who questions, understanding asks why questions, and wisdom asks how questions. In this system, at least from what we’ve […] Read more »

NPC Meme & Simulated Thinking

The NPC concept is something that I have been chewing on for a few years now, as Gnostics and other forms of mysticism have long recognized a brand of human that is not capable of thinking for themselves, and is called an anthropoid by some, and back fill people by others, but it basically equates to the concept of NPC’s (non-player characters) in tabletop and video gaming.  NPC’s are characters […] Read more »

Reason, Authority, & Natural Law

In this video I examine what it means to be an authority, both over others, and how it pertains to self-ownership and self-governance. I draw on concepts from John Locke’s “Second Treatise of Government”, and show how reason is what differentiates the governed and those who govern. Second Treatise of Government, by John Locke: http://www.earlymoderntexts.com/assets/pdfs/locke1689a.pdf If you prefer a one time gift, support us on PayPal: http://theUnityProcess.com/donate/ Join the discussion!

Enlightenment: A Logocentric Focus

Enlightenment is not an end goal, but reflects the process of engaging in daily life; it is the middle step, and not the last step, in a three step progression. This is why so many great individuals speak with reverence of the beauty found within life’s journey, and that it is superior to the destination. The enlightenment period in Western history further developed many Logocentric philosophies, all of which dealt […] Read more »

The Marginalization of “Conspiracy Theories” Due to a Lack of Empirical Proof

Many people will marginalize collusion and conspiracy as a “conspiracy theory” because there is not enough empirical proof to properly explain the crime. It should be noted that empiricism is just one tool in the bag of those who draw on the values of the enlightenment period, and that rationalism is also an important tool to draw on from enlightenment values. Rationalism does not require empirical proof, and since the […] Read more »

A Guide to Leftist Fallacies

I would add the strawman fallacy, as well as the single cause fallacy. The strawman is because they misrepresent arguments often, and even repeat the strawman ad nauseam, and the single cause fallacy is because they constantly reduce complex and nuanced arguments to simple arguments (giving multilogical problems monological solutions). They even combine these two fallacies by turning them into an ad hominem by reducing the character of the person […] Read more »

The Single Cause Fallacy and False Accusations

Beware of making and giving credence to the “single cause fallacy” (causal reductionism, complex cause, fallacy of the causal oversimplification, reduction fallacy), for it “typically leads to a myriad of false claims and accusations”, as noted below. It is also connected to the straw man fallacy, as it can be used to reduce a person or argument to a single motivation or reason for being something, thus misrepresenting their complex […] Read more »

Is it Fairminded to Entertain the Delusions of the Mentally Ill?

Here are my thoughts on entering into a fairminded conversation with those who participate in identity politics, and desire what is termed “social justice”. Such ideologies are rooted in envy, and seek to tear down successful people and their creations to the lowest common denominator in the name of fairness, and according to the Freudian School of Psychoanalysis, the root of all mental illness is also envy. Therefore, it can […] Read more »
