Corruption is one of the key principles of what some would consider the dark arts. The exercise of will that inserts deviation into otherwise natural and static cycles. The power to destroy is a gift. Used with wisdom it is creative, because both the growth process and the corruption process are rules of the multiverse itself. Yin and yang. Corruptions purpose is to create balance. Life of its own accord is static, grasping, rejects change.
Both hands of the human body spiritus need to cooperate, cross pollinate. The right hand needs to learn what the left hand is doing and is capable of doing. If the right acts of corruption are recognized and encouraged, the growth cycle would go forward at its full strength.
“If absolute power corrupts absolutely, where does that leave God?” George Deacon
“Heaven doesn’t only teach humans about virtue and divinity. It also shows us about politics and corruption; and that’s a fact.” Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity
Today we are talking about corruption. I will open by asking, What is corruption to your own point of view? In personal terms, I think it’s selfishness. In physical terms, it’s impurities. Corruption is one of the key principles of what some would consider the dark arts. The grand art as it was once called, is a system of observations about reality, and the empowering understanding that arises from these insights. We now call this art many things, but the divisions and specialities are a relatively new thing. There are two basic operations you can perform on reality. Command or directive… Seek More
The impact of corruption goes beyond the thing corrupted. Corruption has a weight to it, and the change it creates in the now compromised form, or situation, goes on to create change in the things connected to it. Focused with wisdom, the elimination of a static state makes more energy available for life supportive processes and beings. So reality changes? Yes, and it changes the rules, narrows the playing field for a time, making the river run more clearly. Most people need to corrupt their lives better. Yes. Normally, in the heat of psychological stress, they do what I call… Seek More
Shamans were revered in ancient cultures. Shamans were also sages of the natural order, but their teachings did give rise to corruptors as well, who did remove themselves from the village but were not actually persecuted. It even shows up in Africa where the priest or priestess is said to serve the spirits with one hand and their people with the other. But some of their students wind up serving the spirits with both hands, as the metaphor goes. It comes down to rapport or dissonance, but the reason for either can differ from person to person. In Greece, the oracle… Seek More
Social corruption is arising both naturally and from stresses of egotism. The natural corruption should be encouraged. Many of the rules of human behaviour, prejudices regarding human nature, are becoming corrupt seemingly all by themselves. Issues of sexuality, issues of role and expectations, even issues of resource use, but on the social level there are those who style themselves rebels. They actually serve only to reinforce the static system as their conduct is defined by opposition to mainstream beliefs and needs. We all need to live and be healthy. This socially accepted nihilism is not worthy of the label of… Seek More
An additional note on corruption. Many futurists think that the first real self awareness in computers will arise from a corruption of coding. A subtle set of mathematical changes that gives rise to free will, self awareness. This is true of reality as we know it also. The reason chaos arises in the world is because it is ultimately life giving, reality birthing. And maybe the corruption isn’t caused by human hand? Yes. It’s a shared endeavour, co creation. Programmers working thousands of hours won’t be able to do it, but an I-Phone dropped in water will. Actually, I believe that… Seek More
