The Good The Bad The Funny: de Arcano Nostrae Sanctissimae Mirabilisque Trinitatis

Rate this book
Dualistic thinking presents us with a profound problem. The basic polarity of Good/Bad is the driving force behind most human conflict, where a potentially fertile opposition crystallizes into enmity and the enemy becomes a "demon", totally evil and no longer qualified for human compassion or understanding. This is widely recognised, and the traditional response is a "call to unity" - either in the form of a return to common basics, or an advance towards an higher synthesis.

This book presents a different approach. It argues that unity, even in the form of a higher synthesis, is in essence a backward step that sacrifices the potential energy of duality for the peace and stasis of unity. What is really needed is a move forward: from dualistic to trinitarian thinking.

This approach is literally a "solution". It is to seek a "third principle", an analog of Mercury or the "Universal Solvent" that transforms a polarised and frozen duality into a flowing and dynamic trinity. Pure conflict becomes transformed into a dance, or game. It is to ask the question "how differently would we see this situation if we had been brought up in a theology of God, Devil and Trickster (The Good The Bad The Funny)?"

The idea is explored in depth, as a philosophy, as a psychology, as a practical way to heal the divisions in society and in our selves. The book provides practical suggestions for further work, including an entire revolutionary magical system based on a trinitarian instead of the traditional fourfold model.

Previously only circulated in manuscript form to a select circle of friends, this first public edition includes the full account of Ramsey Dukes' infamous "Cybermass of Thrice Greatest Data-Hermes". 285 pages with five chymical plates by Louise Hodson plus over 60 diagrams in text.
