The Elementalist Conception Of The Meaning Of Life

Elementalists believe, much like the Existentialists, that every person is entirely free to choose what the meaning of their life is. Broadly speaking, the meaning of life that a person chooses will fall into one of four categories, each corresponding to one of the feminine elements.

Some people choose domination. This corresponds to fire. These people have the most energy to expend. They strive to become professional sportsmen, business tycoons, politicians or military/law enforcement/security. People who choose this as the meaning of life are likely to see other people as weak.

Some choose exploration. This corresponds to air. These people are masculine, and like to go forward, but they are more subtle about it than the dominators. People in this group are more likely to become backpackers or psychonauts. If someone chooses exploration as the meaning of life, they are likely to see other people as boring.

Some choose pleasure. This corresponds to water. People who choose pleasure are feminine because they will shy away from adversity, but they are not entirely feminine, because they do not shy away from pleasure and are attracted to the possibility of it. If someone chooses pleasure as the meaning of life, they are likely to see other people as masochistic.

Some choose survival. This corresponds to earth. These people are feminine, and are prone to retreating. Life on this planet is hard enough without worrying about things like domination or exploration. Much better to just hunker down. If someone chooses survival as the meaning of life, they are likely to see other people as foolish. ‘Why take a risk if I don’t have to?’ is their motto.

In principle, every person could be assigned to one of these four groups based on how they choose or desire to live, even if they haven’t consciously chosen that group themselves. This is because every person who chooses to go forwards – in other words, every person who chooses to live – must have a reason to do so, and the potential range of those reasons is finite.

However, all of these reasons are only ever a Secondary Meaning to a life.

The Primary Meaning of every life is to entertain the gods.

Elementalists believe in higher dimensions that are populated by beings of higher frequencies. These beings are capable of observing us without our being aware of it, much like we might observe a creature under a microscope. To us, they are the gods: higher frequencies in higher realms of the Great Fractal.

It is to entertain these gods that our lives have meaning. The more righteously one attempts to full one’s Secondary Meaning of life, the more gloriously one fulfills the Primary Meaning. If our futile struggles to dominate or to explore the Great Fractal entertain the gods, then our lives have meaning despite being finite.

It needs to be emphasised at this point that all of us are mortal. So all of us are faced with a dilemma. Domination and survival are impossible because each of us will inevitably weaken with age and decline into death. Infinite pleasure is impossible because the agonies of aging and dying must befall all of us. Even exploration is meaningless because the memories of it will not survive death.

What this means is that every Secondary Meaning, i.e. every meaning that we could ourselves give to life, is ultimately futile and pointless.

Many never overcome this dilemma, withdrawing from life and saying No to it. Such people appall, disgust and bore the gods. Those who fail to overcome this dilemma are soulless; they don’t try to dominate or explore, they don’t seek pleasure and they don’t care if they live or die. These existential zombies have failed to understand the Primary Meaning of life.

Those who do overcome this dilemma behave in ways that entertain the gods. Their example is authentic, passionate acceptance, saying Yes to life. This pleases the gods, who see a spirit that may one day rise to stand among them in a higher dimension. In the Elementalist conception, man lives so that the gods might regard him as they once regarded Alexander.

This conception clashes head-on with others. Some of the most common competing ideas about the real meaning of life are religious ones: that we’re here to overcome evil, to purify our souls or to escape the world of suffering. But Elementalists reject all of these conceptions.

Overcoming evil cannot possibly be the Primary Meaning meaning of life, because evil will always be a part of the world as long as it’s possible for God to will it. Struggling against evil might be a Secondary Meaning to life, especially if that struggle was one of survival, but the Primary Meaning would still be the entertainment value that one’s struggle provided the gods.

Neither can purifying one’s soul (understood by the Elementalist as raising the frequency of one’s consciousness) be the Primary Meaning of life. If it was, then life would be no longer possible once this had been achieved. Struggling to purify one’s soul, if that struggle be heroic enough, can serve as the Primary Meaning of life. Then again, so can struggling to degrade one’s soul. Both the rising beast and the falling angel entertain the gods.

Nor can escaping the world be the Primary Meaning of life. There’s ultimately nowhere for consciousness to escape to, other than reunion with God, and in such a case there’s no going forward without re-entering the world again. The problem with escaping samsara is that nirvana is batshit boring. Of course, however, struggling to escape the world can serve as the Primary Meaning of life should it entertain the gods.

The ancient Greeks understood the overwhelming importance of behaving heroically for the sake of the gods’ attention. They understood that the gods and goddesses watch over us from a higher place. This knowledge has been lost today, which is one reason why we live in such a pitiful manner, struggling for purpose and meaning.

Clown World Chronicles: Who Is El Goblino?

Of all the hideous creatures of Clown World, El Goblino is the most repulsive. His hunched shoulders, shambling gait, misshapen face and genderless appearance make people wonder if he is a genetic freak or a throwback to a more primitive form of life. He is both of those things, and worse – he is El Goblino.

El Goblino takes a human form, but that form is very similar to the form of a goblin. Like the goblin, El Goblino lives on the margins. His role in society is akin to that of a scavenger. He lives in a band with others of his kind, known at the 56%ers. These others are known by names such as La Creatura, La Luz Extinguida, Dios Mio and El Ogro de las Americas.

In the mythology of Clown World, El Goblino is the result of rampant miscegenation. He is a long-distant child of Boomer. Legend has it that Boomer once impregnated a Filipino prostitute, then the resulting son moved to Tijuana and impregnated a Mexican prostitute, and then the resulting daughter moved to California and got impregnated by some random Amerimutt. The child that resulted from that is El Goblino.

El Goblino may be ugly, but what he represents is even uglier – the total McDonaldsisation of the American gene pool, and its reduction to an 85IQ mulatto slave race who never thinks further ahead than the weekend sportsball match. This Amerimutt is the perfect consumer. He is just intelligent enough to run the machines, but not intelligent enough to organise a rebellion.

Like Tyrone, El Goblino is a demigod that represents a particular force. The power of El Goblino is not something that simply manifests. It is actively brought into existence by the malicious indifference of the denizens of Clown World. Also like Tyrone, El Goblino serves primarily as a warning.

When people don’t look after their communities or neighbourhoods, or when they let their family connections fall away to watch Netflix instead, El Goblino grows in power. He always grows in power when social connections weaken. When people can’t be fucked socialising with their friends, El Goblino moves in.

El Goblino represents the space between the Great NPC and Corona-Chan, i.e. a double negative feminine. This suggests a mindless reproductive energy that got out of control. El Goblino is the result of the remorseless sexualisation of popular culture and the idea that busting a nut is the highest of all actions. Roasties, in particular, bring the energy of El Goblino into the world, as does the energy of Virgin.

El Goblino is not nearly as dangerous as Tyrone, at least not on an individual level. El Goblino might occupy society’s margins, but he is not particularly malicious or prone to outbursts of aggression. Having said that, you wouldn’t want to leave your wallet out of your sight while he was around. Neither would you want to leave your back door unlocked.

On a collective level, however, El Goblino represents everything getting a little bit worse. If Tyrone brings intense tragedy to a small area, El Goblino brings minor tragedy to a large area. Manifestations of El Goblino are signs that your wages are about to go down, and that your rent’s about to go up. His presence is a sign that everything’s getting just that little bit shittier.

In Clown World, the average person has been taught to have no connection with their heritage. They know nothing of their ancestors, living only for the next cheeseburger. Even worse, the average person has no connection with their own kin. This has led to an advanced spiritual decay.

This spiritual rot is the power that El Goblino feeds upon to become more numerous. The excessive self-interest of people who have given up on cultivating social connections powers him to multiply into the hundreds of millions. Being overrun by the offspring of El Goblino is the inevitable fate of all nations that put material and commercial concerns above spiritual ones.

The solution to the threat posed by El Goblino is to summon the power of Chad and Stacy. A really good party, one that the attendees look back on fondly and with a will to reconnect with the people they met, is the kind of magic that keeps El Goblino away. So does hosting a weekly poker night for members of the neighbourhood, or any public festival.

This is a specific example of the general approach that needs to be taken to Clown World. Whereas Doomer has impulsive visions of shooting up a shopping mall full of goblinos with an automatic rifle, Chad shows the real way forward. An effort must be made to actively bring good energy into the world if Clown World is to end.

Clown World Chronicles: Who Is Tyrone?

He can be seen shuffling along, his pants low, his limbs elastic, his head bobbing to some random tune. Something remarkable occurs, and he cries out “Sheeeeeittt!” He is Tyrone, one of the many demigods of the Clown World pantheon.

Tyrone is the archetype of not giving a fuck anymore. Mostly because of early childhood trauma, but also perhaps for natural reasons, Tyrone doesn’t think beyond the immediate future. If something happens, he simply reacts to it. Tyrone likes to live in the now, reasoning that there’s something inhuman about scheming for a future that may never come.

Legend has it that Tyrone was conceived when his mother offered her pussy up for a rock of crack. His father then disappeared, never to be heard from again. No-one ever invested in Tyrone’s education, and as such he is an exceptionally unrefined being. Tyrone couldn’t pass the marshmallow test no matter what the schedule of rewards was.

Although many mock Tyrone for being low-IQ, there’s more to him than that. He also represents the spontaneity that brings joy to life. Humour always follows in his wake (even if it’s of the slapstick, wacky variety). Tyrone loves laughing, eating, partying and he especially loves fucking.

Not even Chad enjoys busting a nut as much as Tyrone does. For Tyrone, getting his end away is to ascend into heaven. The excitement of getting laid is so great that the possibility of it gives colour and meaning to all of life. Every attractive woman gets a “Sheeeeiiittt”.

Many a Clown World denizen summons the power of Tyrone to decrease their sexual anxiety. These magicians hold in their minds an image of the person that they would like to make love to and think “Sheeeeeiiittt!” This allows them to relax and to see the sexual encounter as an opportunity to create a lifelong memory.

In the Clown World pantheon, Tyrone represents the space between the Great NPC and Doomer, between the Negative Fundamental Axis and the Negative Masculine Axis. As such, he is more of a demigod than a real god. In a sense, he is a double negative masculine energy, combining the mindlessness of the Great NPC with the nihilism of Doomer.

One consequence of representing double negative masculine energy is that Tyrone commits an enormous amount of sex crimes. The tyronic mentality considers weakness and passivity an invitation. He doesn’t care if a woman is drunk, underage, or incapacitated in some sense – he just ploughs in.

Fitting with this sexual recklessness, Tyrone has a great number of illegitimate children. He is infamous for his hit-and-run mating style. Any citizen of Clown World who does not know their father could be said to possess some tyronic energy. This energy can cause them to behave like Tyrone, making short-term decisions.

The appearance of Tyrone is usually a bad omen. It commonly means that violence and disorder are about to come to one’s neighbourhood. Tyrone has an extremely casual attitude to property crime, which causes him to acquire things without due consideration. His followers have similar attitudes.

However, the appearance of Tyrone can also mean good times and hilarity is coming one’s way. Tyrone is a demigod of disorder, and this can bring much-needed levity. Many people experience a crushing, suffocating sense of excess order in Clown World, thanks to the fact that everything has been monetised down to the last detail, and that every last second of time is accounted for. Tyrone promises release from these strictures.

Tyrone is in it for a good time, not a long time. As such, he’s usually up for any wack-brain scheme that someone comes up with. He is willing to take massive risks for minimal or even negative reward. When it all goes horribly wrong, he just cries “Sheeeeeiitttt.” He never seems to sustain the serious injuries that one expects him to.

Some of the funniest stories in the Clown World pantheon result from the Merchant’s attempts to win the loyalty of Tyrone. The Merchant wants to send Tyrone after his enemies, to destroy their neighbourhoods and perhaps even kill them. But Tyrone, not being pure evil, never fully trusts the Merchant, and so can never totally be controlled.

Other funny stories involve Tyrone trying to impress Stacy, but ending up with Karen. Somehow, Karen got it into her mind that Tyrone has an gigantic penis, so she hooks up with him, hoping that his irrepressible lust will make her feel young again. Sometimes she has to trick him, which can lead to all kinds of consequences.

Tyrone is far from evil – he also sells weed to anyone who might need it. An international traveller who just turned up in a new city might get quality drug hookups from befriending him. Tyrone’s just loose. This looseness can create great joy for those who feel that Clown World is excessively restrictive.

Metaphysical Abolitionism

The term ‘abolitionism’ refers to the political movement that sought to abolish chattel slavery. It was a popular term in the 19th century, when first the British and later the Americans made it illegal to own other people. However, as this essay will examine, the battle against slavery merely shifted to a different front – the metaphysical one.

Controlling slaves physically is a major undertaking. They have to be shackled so as to not escape the plantation, and beaten or whipped so as to not shirk labour. Plantation owners in the antebellum South found themselves spending a great deal of their profits on keeping their slaves in line. Slave rebellions were common.

Eventually, the slave owners realised, it was unnecessary to keep people in chains and shackles when they could simply control their minds and their spirits. Controlling the minds and spirits of the slaves meant that the slave owners controlled all of their actions anyway, without having to physically abuse them and generate resentment or risk rebellion.

The enslavement of the mind and the spirit is linked to the Silver Right and the Golden Right of alt centrism. Simply put, a people cannot be free unless they’re both free to think for themselves and free to reconnect with God. The metaphysical abolitionist demands the removal of any obstacle preventing these two goals from being achieved.

Enslaving the mind, however, is the expertise of the Western ruling class. This they achieve through control of the popular narrative.

Ever since the publication of Edward Bernays’s Propaganda in 1928, the ruling elites have structured the education and media systems to both condition people to feel bad for questioning the popular narrative, and to feel good for enforcing that narrative on those who question it. The end product is a country of willing slaves, as submissive as any other herd animal.

The first step to inducing a population into trusting the mainstream media is to pacify them through the education system. 12 years of schooling is enough to condition most people into believing that questioning the popular narrative is an act of evil, and only by going along with it can happiness be found. It’s a simple matter of punishing those who ask questions and rewarding those who submit.

Controlling the popular narrative through the mainstream media means that Western elites control the permissible boundaries of thought. By normalising certain topics of discussion through repeated media exposure, they abnormalise others. The term ‘Overton window’ refers to that range of political positions that have been thus legitimised.

Any idea expressed in the mainstream media is legitimate; any idea not expressed in the mainstream media is illegitimate. If the elites really don’t like an idea, they simply instruct the talking heads on the television to describe supporters of that idea as ‘conspiracy theorists’. By discouraging unwanted lines of reasoning, the elites can keep people going around in circles, chasing mental phantoms like rats on a wheel.

The results of this widespread brainwashing are easily noted. The ruling elites merely have to broadcast the necessity of something over the television, and the masses will fall unquestioningly in line. If a talking head on the television says that Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11, the masses will demand his destruction. If the talking head says to wear a mask to prevent coronavirus, the masses obey.

The metaphysical abolitionist opposes all of this. Metaphysical abolitionism demands that people be allowed to think freely. So a metaphysical abolitionist will reject the importance of mainstream schooling, will discourage the consumption of the mass media and will encourage people to consume alternative media of all kinds. Their favourite thing is people getting together, away from normies, to discuss what the truth really is.

However, even if we did manage to break the psychological conditioning that enslaves our minds, there is a greater challenge.

Our minds may have been enslaved for a hundred years, but our spirits have been enslaved for even longer – ever since Christians destroyed the Eleusinian Mysteries in the 4th Century A.D. Since then, we’ve been the slaves of those who would tell us lies about God. The metaphysical abolitionist opposes this and wishes for the spirits of all people to be free.

In the same way that the ruling elites can engender intellectual submission by restricting intellectual expression to a range of harmless ideas, they can engender spiritual submission by restricting spiritual expression to a range of pointless superstitious dogmas. The humiliation engendered by forcing people to worship an idol of Rabbi Yeshua ben Yosef instead of God has the effect of inducing passivity. With spiritual slavery follows slavery of every other kind.

Although humans have been using spiritual sacraments such as cannabis and psilocybin to reconnect with God for thousands of years, their use is mostly illegal in the modern West. The laws prohibiting them are explained to us as laws protecting the people’s mental health, but this is a total lie.

The truth is that cannabis and psilocybin are illegal because they are spiritual sacraments.

All spiritual people know that the truth will set you free, so those who would enslave the spirit must tell lies. Spiritual sacraments such as cannabis and psilocybin teach people the spiritual truths about reality: that consciousness is eternal and that God not only exists but also wishes the best for us. These sacraments have been made illegal so that the common people remain blind to the lies of the elites.

Spiritually speaking, the vast bulk of the population divides neatly into two halves: the slaves who follow whatever mainstream religion is pushed on them as children, and the malcontents who, recognising the mainstream dogma to be lies, reject the question of spirituality entirely. Genuine spiritual seekers – those who reject both the “Christian” label and the “atheist” label – are thus marginalised.

Metaphysical abolitionism demands that the human spirit be as free as the human body. This requires that people have free access to whatever spiritual sacrament they feel will help them reconnect with God. All spiritual sacraments must be legal and readily available: cannabis, psilocybin, LSD, DMT – the lot.

In summary, the metaphysical abolitionist advocates for free speech, free thought and for the annihilation of dogmatic religious strictures. This is to advocate for free minds and free spirits. The abolition of chattel slavery has been achieved already, at least in the West. It’s time to achieve the abolition of a much more insidious form of slavery, that of our minds and spirits.
