For some time now I've been thinking about introducing the theme of the 'excluded middle' to these pages. As a so-called "law" the definition of the term reads something like
"In logic, the law of excluded middle (or the principle of excluded middle) is the third of the so-called three classic laws of thought. It states that for any proposition, either that proposition is true, or its negation is. The principle should not be confused with the principle of bivalence, which states that every proposition is either true or false, and has only a semantical formulation.
There's a lot to be said - in critical vein - about Aristotle, his milieu, their philosophical conceits in general... and what lies behind the successful marketing of it all as "our western heritage." But that the kind of stuff I am hoping to get into via the ever-delayed book project which always seems to come second to the need to wıtness to the crımes of the moment takıng place on the exact same terrıtory where those earlıer dıssımulatıonısts commıtted theirs~!
What I wish to draw of the term "excluded middle" here is the practical application it has had in disabling our collective ability to "think" in the fullest sense of the word. "Thinking," "reasoning," deducing and similar terms have been foisted upon us in an extremely reductionist manner so as to create the conditions for what has been termed "the War Within the Word" - a war which fractured cultural harmonies and left us ever divided both between and within ourselves.
"But as McLuhan searched the tradition that reached from Ramus back to Aristotle, Plato and Socrates, then began investigating the tradition running from Nashe through Augustine back to Cicero and the pre-Socratics, he came to see something more: a conflict of which the prize was a control over the spoken and written word:
The war between these literary camps is basically the opposition between dialectics and rhetoric to control the modes of literary composition; and the ramifications of this opposition stretch into the realms of ethics and politics, both in antiquity and in the Renaissance."

If this all seems hopelessly obtuse and out of place for any study of geopolitical themes, all I can say is -
Right then, lads n lasses. We’ve reached that point on our hike through the DESERTS OF THE REALLY REAL where some of the surroundings have become unmistakably clear. Chief among which, is that pretty much our entire world is in the grip of a criminal caste which stealthily subverts that which it cannot outright steal... and then uses its artist and inteee-lectual minions to paint over the looted treasure box a simulacra of what used to be – but ain’t – no more. What does it all mean?
YOU’VE BIN ROBBED!
If you traded your money for some overpriced gold coins – on the expectation of getting RICH from the collapse ad round the corner.... bet your retirement upon your real estate going up in value for ever... or bought into the crypto-scam against all advice - All your money belong to them now!
If you fell for the above scams, and became pauperized as a result... forgetting that there’s never been a time when... girls don’t dump losers, and follow the hypnotic flash of bling to the winners’ cave – all your honey belong to them now!
And if that weren’t bad enough news already... I have to inform you that
Your government, markets, culture, and communication channels – all belong to them now! And if you have kids, they will turn them into mindless slaves who know nothing about anything real, and therefore have no future.
And there’s nuthin you can do about it!
Or is there?
Maybe. Two vital steps are required to regain terra firma. Step One is recognizing that it’s all true – every bit of it – and it really is a nightmare world we live/exist in now. Step Two is taking responsibility for whatever bad stuff has happened to one self ... instead of trying to squeeze out of it by a)blaming party 1) party 2) or party 3), and/or saying “who coulda seen it comin?” whilst pretending that you simply “had no choice” but to place your trust in the hands of obvious reprobates and serial fraudsters posing as ‘leaders.’
After that, things start to look up. After all... your forbears faced times so tuff it makes your current situation look like a garden party! Time and again, they squeaked out a victory from sticky situations which seemed to signal ‘THE END’ of the line for our haplogroups.
Step Three –get out of GULAGISTAN and never look back - though desirable en extremis... is not a viable option for many who lingered longer in the fallen lands of the west than was wise. You pretty much stuck at this point – in a miasma of poisoned skies, deadly medicines and death-dealing ‘doctors,’ a failing economic system and sickness inducing food supply brought to you by enemies of the people who outlaw home gardens and legislate mixed washrooms. Hard to think straight in the midst of all that madness. But THINK you must!
Think like an outlaw... a castaway... a guerrilla fighter cut off from base camp and surrounded by Charlie Cong. Not ‘in character for ya? Well you better expand the dimension of your role playing abilities chum. Whether its William Wallace what suits you, or some other brave heart from the past who refused to be conquered... you gotta get down with your inner warrior! Does that mean picking up guns, knives, slingshots and playing Rambo in the woods?
No ... not really. In the real world of politics – personal politics at the micro level – geo-politics at the macro one.... victories are almost always gained by
bluff... fake out... diversion... and deceit. Sounds just like the business world I remember! But it applies across the board. Most personal encounters, you see, involve some form of vampirism – eg,, the theft of one’s energy, finances, or other personal resources by another party. It’s subtle – but it’s real. On the macro level, of geopolitics that is, it’s not subtle at all. But the victory is nevertheless gained... via smoke n mirrors applied through control of communications medias. That’s mostly what we talk about here – kabbalism in action on the macro level – but it’s essential to be able to transfer that knowledge to the personal one... in order to not end up being ZHOMBIEFYED!
And then leave it at that!
Because that's as far as I got this morning with what I wanted to write... before repeated attacks on the document in my computer rendered it impossible to continue - and wiped out the rest of that piece!
And that's how its been for about a week now... every day a new angle of attack... some, described here previously, then, power supply...
after a string of cloudy rainy weeks making solar gathering useless, a generator goes on the fritz, a repairman refuses to look at it, my back up plug in workaround suddenly is locked up and unavailable... and... when yesterday the sun finally breaks through it all and I'm ready n set to charge...
the NATO planes get busy buzzing all over the sky plastering layers of fake cloud of intensity like I've never seen before! Excuse my paranoia but - this
- is the price of success!
I'm getting pummeled - and it's one more sign that TEAM KABBALA HAS BEEN GIVEN A THRASHING. Kabbalists are easy to understand. So staggering in extent is their hubristic arrogance that, upon the first signs of a really effective penetration of their smoke n mirrors, they panic; this is followed by fulminations and fuming, and eventually..... countermeasures. It's been this way for years, and I'm now used to marking the accuracy of my arrows by the degree and intensity to which this all kicks in, in predictable sequence! This is pretty intense.
I was driving earlier this morning, and suddenly felt everything shifting on the roadway - this area is prone to tremors of some consequence, and I asked my companion if we had indeed just had another small 'earthquake' of the kind which happen semi-regularly. She hadn't felt anything at all. It was, in fact, entirely an internal affair. Fair enough. Like walking on the deck of a ‘storm tossed’ craft somewhere in the mid-Atlantic. I got safely home, and lay down for a bit. That gave me the chance to reflect some more, on the question which comes up time and again to me.
Whence cometh this veritable plague of ignorance amongst westerlings, which seems to manifest in greedy uptake of the most unlikely narratives and fabulous pronouncements such as litters the landscape of this thing called ‘the internet?’ If they were entirely witless, then they would be entirely dysfunctional - clearly most are not, and so we must look for other causes of the diseases which eats away at critical reasoning skills and leaves the victim susceptible to viral infections of the disinfo kind! That’s what took me back to McLuhan.
When the computer went haywire for the last time, you see, as I was writing the part of the above extract now wiped out… I had just started in to talking about “allies” - in the sense of the word it was used by the great trickster magus Castaneda = entities invisible to the perception of normative sort, yet which manifest to the perception of the so-called altered kind. In the way that our realities and our perceptive faculties have been over time ‘inverted’ - as I recently explained - by kabbalistic culture war strategy, I’m pretty sure that “altered” perception is/was our natural faculty of awareness and has been abandoned for the ‘norm’ of limited and logic-bound perception which now guides most everyone’s thinking. So ‘allies’ are not a part of their lives as a consequence. Those who seek to survive the onslaught of talmudic kabbalism, in contrast, are most definitely in need of ‘allies’ - perceptible or imperceptible - and that’s where the pages froze in terror. Somebodies terror!
The silver lining in being forced to drop that line of thinking was picking up the thread of what I had intended for a chapter of the BARBAROUS RELIQUARY project. Applying it here instead, in abbreviated form, I’m disposed to agree with the following assessment of McLuhans’
“When I did a study of the Trivium years ago, I encountered the techniques by which grammatica was eliminated from humanistic studies. The strategy of eliminating the study of language is via abstraction. What is eliminated is the ground of corporate utterance by concentrating on the figures of speech and thought. The rise of logic in the ancient world came with the Euclidean abstractions of figures... The page of nature and the page of scripture kept medieval man in frequent contact with the Logos as ground until the rise of scholasticism when figures and concepts once more usurped the enterprise of perception... Current linguistics, in general, have set about the adaptation of grammar and literature to the abstract schemes once familiar to the schoolmen and Peter Ramus. This amounts to transforming percepts into concepts and reducing literary experience to logical schema."
as a rather fine way of explaining both why most folks can no longer ‘think,’ and why there is a great gap in understanding between those who learned how to do just that - and the younger person who has been deliberately trained away from doing so. But it’s not just “figures” and “concepts” which get in the way of real critical thinking skills - it’s the programmatic alteration of perception as designed by the talmudic kabbalist campaign to neuter and degrade the westerling! Long before the poisoners of the Hellenic proto-talmudic kind threw out the baby with the bathwater - and turned logic into a weapon to be used against itself- our wise men/womyn were able to harmoniously blend the component parts of the human psyche into a carpet of beautiful mien and deadly defense against error. We need to find it all again. Then defeat the dialecticians at their own game!
To ‘perceive that which is, and ‘not’ perceive that which is not. A dying faculty it seems, replaced by reliance pon machinery and artifice.
All of which brings us back again, to ‘the excluded middle.’
Leaving aside its application to mathematical formulas and philosophical debate, I wish apply the term to what is going on right here - on this site.
WE - you see- ARE ‘the excluded middle!’ Neither ‘left,’ nor ‘right,’ this vs that, or in otherwise ‘dialectically deafened’ by the noise of faction, concept or intellectual fashion… we occupy the despised ‘middle ground’ where no cult or fanatic may rest in peace. Despised - because it offers the only serious challenge to kabbalisms conceits. Feared, because here alone is there freedom from the mischief of doubletalk, disinfo, misrepresentation. Don’t be fooled by the smallness of our forces… the fear which has already pierced the spiny hides of the orc-like hordes is entirely due to the quality of the weaponry employed - not quantity!
In sum… I bring you glad tidings. Though you may not see it yet, the enemy has been met… and sent packing - for a brief while. They will be back, the battle rejoined, there will be casualties among us. But what the kabbalist dreads most of all is the fair fight, on level playing field. Their dirty tricks are all about preventing that scenario at all costs.
And its gonna happen anyways! The sword of truth in media is sharpened on the stone of analog mind.
They be throwin in the kitchen sink. But their ship o fools is still fated to sink... no matter how much they throw overboard!
