Erik Pevernagie
“Neighborship is a universal dialectic phenomenon. Good neighborship has a contingent status since it may procure either balance, trust and peace of mind or entail limits, barriers, and fences that can be a protection or conjure up feelings of exclusion, creating inhibitions and frustrations.( "Beware of the neighbor" )”
Erik Pevernagie

Theodor W. Adorno
“What can oppose the decline of the west is not a resurrected culture but the utopia that is silently contained in the image of its decline.”
Theodor W. Adorno

William Morris
“I pondered all these things, and how men fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of their defeat, and when it comes turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name.”
William Morris

“و در آخر قیل و قال، حقیقتی ماند ،نه از جنس قیل نه از جنس قال”
Mohammad Hossein Khosh Bayan

Peter Singer
“Le point final du processus dialectique represente l'esprit qui se reconnait comme l'ultime realite, et realise que tout ce qu'il a considere jusqu'alors comme etranger et hostile a lui-meme,
en verite, en fait partie integrante. Il s'agit simultanement d'un etat de connaissance absolue ou l'esprit s'identifie enfin comme etant l'ultime realite, mais aussi un etat de liberte totale dans lequel l'esprit, au lieu d'etre controlee par des forces exterieures, est capable d'organiser le monde d'une facon rationnelle. Il prend alors conscience que le monde est en fait lui-meme, et qu'il lui suffit simplement de mettre en oeuvre ses propres principes de rationalite afin de l'organizer rationalement.”
Peter Singer

Eric Micha'el Leventhal
“We lovers of truth
seek less to answer questions
than to question our own answers.”
Eric Micha'el Leventhal

“Boldness, boldness, always boldness. Join us. Join the advance guard of humanity. Join Higher Humanity, HyperHumanity. We are the plan, we are the future. Our sacred cause is to make humanity divine. We are here to enlighten the world, to immanentize the eschaton on earth, to create the community of gods, the society of the divine. We are the Protogenoi, the first generation of the coming gods and goddesses. It is our solemn duty to create all the other gods and goddesses.”
Thomas Stark, Base Reality: Ultimate Existence

Eleanor Burke Leacock
“In nineteenth century Europe (and later in other parts of the world) the transition from a subsistence to a market economy based on the use of wage labor caused a net loss of autonomy for kin-based groups and households. Individuals became more dependent on external political, economic, and ideological forces. A profound contradiction resulted from the increasing individuation of the labor force and the need to maintain collective mechanisms for the reproduction of the working class through preexisting but constantly evolving patterns of family, household, and kinship organization. In other words, the advance of capitalism created a dynamic opposition between productive and reproductive spheres.”
Eleanor Burke Leacock, Women's Work: Development and the Division of Labor by Gender

“The efficient or motive principle, which is not
merely the analysis but the production of the several elements
of the universal, I call dialectic. Dialectic is not that process in
which an object or proposition, presented, to feeling or the
direct consciousness, is analysed, entangled, taken hither and
thither, until at last its contrary is derived. Such a merely
negative method appears frequently in Plato. It may fix the
opposite of any notion, or reveal the contradiction contained
in it, as did the ancient scepticism, or it may in a feeble way
consider an approximation to truth, or modern half-and-half
attainment of it, as its goal. But the higher dialectic of the
conception does not merely apprehend any phase as a limit
and opposite, but produces out of this negative a positive
content and result. Only by such a course is there
development and inherent progress. Hence this dialectic is
not the external agency of subjective thinking, but the private
soul of the content, which unfolds its branches and fruit
organically. Thought regards this development of the idea
and of the peculiar activity of the reason of the idea as only
subjective, but is on its side unable to make any addition. To
consider anything rationally is not to bring reason to it from
the outside, and work it up in this way, but to count it as itself
reasonable. Here it is spirit in its freedom, the summit of selfconscious reason, which gives itself actuality, and produces
itself as the existing world. The business of science is simply
to bring the specific work of the reason, which is in the thing,
to consciousness”

Mandy Hager
“Dialectic, she says, describes the rational discussion between those who hold conflicting positions, to find resolution and deduce the truth through the disciplines of logic and reason. Rhetoric, meanwhile, is the art of persuasion. It makes use of invention, arrangement, delivery and style.
Therefore, can the delivery and style of rhetoric take precedence over truth?
mandy hager, Heloise: Forbidden love in a hostile world

“To hold fast the positive in the negative, in the content of the presupposition, in the result, this is the most important feature in rational cognition.”

“Hegel gives a fantastically elevated role to humans in his philosophy. They are carriers of unfolding divinity. They are the mirrors of God, providing an ever clearer and more radiant reflection of the divine.”
Thomas Stark, The Book of Mind: Seeking Gnosis

“Language teleologically seeks to express its most general form, to attain the universal. The universal language is unique. It is mathematics.”
Thomas Stark, The Stairway to Consciousness: The Birth of Self-Awareness from Unconscious Archetypes

“The task is not to unify with a pre-existing consciousness – a “God”. It is to become God, to create God consciousness from the universal unconscious. There is no conscious super-being (a Master, A Creator, an Other) standing separate from us. God is coming to consciousness through us. Each of us is an indispensable cell of the becoming God.”
Thomas Stark, The Sheldrake Shift: A Critical Evaluation of Morphic Resonance

“God creates the world out of itself, out of “nothing”. God is not a conscious superbeing that creates the world. God is an astonishing hive mind, composed of countless individual mental cells (monads), which dialectically come to consciousness of what they are through their mutual interactions.”
Thomas Stark, Tractatus Logico-Mathematicus: How Mathematics Explains Reality

“Come with us to the summit of the pyramid, to the perfection of the universe and the perfection of yourself. At the top of the pyramid are the gods and goddesses themselves – fully optimized, perfected minds. They have reached the Hyper Point, the Point Above All. Join us. Join the Society of the Divine. Join the Community of the Gods. Do not worship God. Become God.”
Thomas Stark, Base Reality: Ultimate Existence

“Once you accept mathematics as reality, you immediately see that everything has a sufficient reason, an explanation and answer, and you are part of the cosmic machinery of providing all of these answers. You yourself are an essential node of the calculation.”
Thomas Stark, What Is Mathematics?: The Greatest Detective Story Never Told

“Our way of life is inherently based on masters and slaves. We bow to assorted Gods, like slaves bowing to masters. We bow to monarchs and presidents, to the rich, to celebrities. We never tire of bowing to others and getting on our knees. We are controlled at every turn. Isn’t it time to unshackle ourselves, to stand up straight for once? Isn’t it time to bring an end to the master-slave dialectic?”
Michael Faust, Hegel: The Man Who Would Be God

“Yes, the Illuminati have always sought a New World Order. Humanity cries out for it. Isn’t it time to abolish the old, failed ways that have enslaved so many billions? The Illuminati have incurred the enmity of all those who prosper from the Old World Order: the rich, privileged elites, the religious leaders who deceive their flocks (of sheep), and the paranoid, ill educated idiots (all the brainwashed anti-New World Order conspiracy theory nuts who don’t see that the New World Order is their only hope of liberation).”
Michael Faust, The Hidden Masters

Adam Weishaupt
“One of the greatest tragedies of the world is the way it has wasted so much female potential. Half the world has been sold the idea that they should sit in the corner playing with dolls and staring in a mirror. It’s time for women to regain the status they had in pagan cultures based on the worship of the Goddess. Women are half of the equation for creating a new humanity. This time we need to get the right answer. Men and women are different. That’s not a problem: it powers the dialectic that drives us forward. The aim is to get the best of both worlds and achieve higher and higher syntheses. It’s outrageous that women have been forced to live in a male-dominated culture. In the future, it needs to be an equal partnership. Not a partnership that mindlessly treats women and men as equals when there are plainly radical differences between the two, but which assigns equal significance to their respective strengths. Yin and yang are eternal partners, not eternal enemies. Neither is more important than the other. Neither can function without the other. The dialectic needs both working at full power.”
Adam Weishaupt, Sex for Salvation

“Leibniz’s assertion that we live in the best of all possible worlds is, no matter what present appearances suggest, absolutely true – because the issue has to be considered over an entire cosmic Age, not just one snapshot in time. All the horrors of today are necessary for the glories of tomorrow. They provide the dialectical obstacles we must overcome, and we do so by becoming more and more perfect ourselves.”
Mike Hockney, The Last Man Who Knew Everything

“Opposition is the motor of progress. Divinity has to be fought for and won. Achieving Godhood is the culmination of the ultimate cosmic struggle. Only the greatest heroes can manage it. Are you a hero? Can you become God?”
Mike Hockney, Hyperreality

“Define yourself. Create yourself. Choose Life. Choose Immortality. Choose Divinity. Choose zero and infinity, and a dialectical process that converts potential into actualization.”
Mike Hockney, Hyperreason

W. Somerset Maugham
“Nothing is more tedious than to talk with persons who treat your most obvious remarks as startling paradoxes and Edward suffered likewise from that passion for argument which is the bad talkers’ substitution for conversation. People who cannot talk are always proud of their dialectic. They want to modify your tritest observations and even if you suggest the day is fine, insist on arguing it out.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Mrs Craddock

“The dialectic is the quintessence of polarisation. You cannot arrive at the Truth via hippie consensus, “respect” or “love and light”. The Truth isn’t the mid ground, the liberal centre, the position of maximum tolerance of error, falsehood and delusion. The Truth is as extreme as it gets.”
Mike Hockney, Transcendental Mathematics

“Although it might often seem that we are living in the worst possible world – a prison planet or cosmic lunatic asylum, ruled over by Satan himself, or by Satanic forces – it is in fact the best possible world in the end. Why? Because it’s the only one that can deliver perfection – divinity. It’s the only one that transforms us into Gods. It does so via the most brutal and imperfect of all processes – the dialectic. The dialectic is the supreme “atom smasher”. It launches dialectical opposites at each other to generate the biggest explosions and bloodbaths possible. Over time, the cosmic carnage turns into something wondrously unexpected – conscious reason, which can then set about rationally resolving all conflicts, all dialectical differences, and thereby create an Omega Point of perfection. The dialectic involves unconscious reason struggling to become conscious, and it does so through the most brute force of means: the opposition of logical opposites, which is of course a highly rational process, if you rationally reflect upon it!”
Mike Hockney, The Science of Monads

“The universe is a self-playing game. We are the players. The universe is a self-solving equation. We are the active nodes of that equation. We breathe fire into the equations and animate and propel them. The universe is a self-optimising mathematical system. It’s the ultimate alchemical experiment. It turns bare, unclear monads (base metal; potential) into full, clear monads (gold; actuality). The universe exists to transform souls into Gods. The universe is an evolving divinity – a God factory – a dialectical system for producing mathematical perfection.”
Mike Hockney, The Forbidden History of Science

“So, will you be one of the ten percent who will change the world? Be a hero. It’s time to make your stand in life. It’s time for you to be an agent of change. It’s time for you to make a difference.”
Michael Faust, The Case for Meritocracy

“The Devil is the Unconscious God, the Divided God, the God who does not know who and what he is. The Devil goes on a cosmic journey of self-discovery through Hell to find himself, to discover his true nature, and at the end he finds himself in heaven and discovers that he was God along. There is nothing but God. Everything is God, and we are all nodes of God. We are all in exactly the same position as the Devil. We do not know who we are. In fact, we are the Devil. And we are also God in the making. We are the means by which the Devil cures himself.”
Joe Dixon, Why God Should Go to Hell: How God Is Outside the Moral Order

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
“When we say of things that they are finite, we understand thereby that they not only have a determinateness, that their quality is not only a reality and an intrinsic determination, that finite things are not merely limited . . . but that on the contrary, non-being constitutes their nature and being. Finite things are, but their relation to themselves is that they are negatively self-related and this very relation drives them beyond their being. They are, but the truth of this being is their destruction. The finite not only alters, as anything does, but it ceases to be, and it is not merely a possibility that it ceases to be, as though it could be that it might not cease. No, the nature of the being of finite things is that they have within them the seeds of their own destruction; the hour of their birth is the hour of their death.”
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Science of Logic
