Trump and the Roots of Freedom

by totalgooched

​So it looks like Europeans have hit their ‘Gates of Vienna’ moment yet again, in their eternal quest for freedom of association. Europeans have a tendancy to never notice how bad things actually are until the very last moment. Like the crusades before, the Ottoman invasion or the battle for America against the native indians, Europeans will believe everything is fine until the problem is in their face, and then, and only then, can something like the election of Donald Trump happen (a much metered reaction when compared to those of the past). Horus the Avenger (@eurorabbit), in his ‘follow the white rabbit’ podcast has made good analysis of this phenomenon.
But another ‘angle’ (pun intended) that needs to be acknowledged in this European struggle is the almost exclusively Anglo aspect of the fight for freedom. Because it appears that it is only Anglo’s who really care about freedom. 

The founding fathers of the American nation were heavily influenced by the English philosophers of their day, and pretty much all of them were either Anglos themselves, or loyal to the English Crown up until the time for revolution came about. 

They recognised something that had been inadvertantly taken away from them (through no fault of the English, who, short sightedly, had lost their truth in the quest for empire) that had always been afforded to those in their colonial homeland, England, and that was freedom. So, they set about trying to achieve a more pure version of that always hypothetical freedom within their new homeland, America.

If we examine the history of Europe, and the world at large, no other nation has had such an innate feel for freedom as the English. The Germans and their northern relatives, and the Italians and their mediterranian kin were always happy to be dictated to, and if today one was to slowly remove their little fought for freedoms i suspect they would barely notice the difference (see Rome, aka the EU 1.0). As for the rest of the world, the concept of freedom seems almost alien to them.

The reasons for this are, i propose, deeply instinctive, that is, there is a genetic component to the concept of freedom that other, less and less Anglic people, dont really understand the appeal, or necessity of.

We must also forget the weaponised lie that the English are either 1) a nation of immigrants, and 2) of Germanic origin, as both of these can be proven as false, creationed for the purpose of legitimising an illegitimate royalty, who are, of Germanic descent. The true history of the people of the British isles is far more esoteric than most know, and has been subject to political revision, but the truth still persists if one is inquisitive enough.

On the subject of innate behavioural traits, as is well known Donald Trump has Germanic roots. The nature of the German is to perfect that which already exists, to the point of absolute effectiveness. Their skill for efficiency is perhaps unmatched in any race. So their motorcars, whilst not being an invention of their own, are the best in the world because of their desire for perfection. They were able to ruthlessly administer national socialism to almost inhuman levels, gleefully adopting and implementing an essentially foreign political system to its logical conclusion of racial purity and technical and economic superiority. (Granted, the Germans have contributed a fair share to invention, particularly in warfare. The word ‘war’ in fact comes from the Germanic word ‘werran’ – to confuse. Still, it must be stated that all European nations have contributed massively to human enlightenment, but none have given the world concepts so life changing as the English). The Germans should not be hated for this ability to perfect, on the contrary, we should celebrate their skill, and utilise it by offering them our most brilliant ideas to get their teeth into.

Which brings us back to Trump. Being an American citizen of German origin (and therefore possessing Germanic faculties) Trump is able to recognise the qualities of English freedom, but is also able to see where it has gone wrong, and what could be done to reinstate those good qualities, and to make that system the most efficient it could be. Trump is going to attempt to do with freedom, ie. the English vision of liberty, what the national socialists tried to do to devotional bondage, ie. Italian Fascism.

Currently, what the left need to realise – and in this way they need to grow up and stop being such babies – is that history cannot step into the same river twice. Contrary to communist belief, history doesnt repeat itself, especially with an idea so disasterous as national socialism. Instead, the solid truths of ethno nationalism will be refined and reconfigured, hybridised with Anglo freedom, and become more sophisticated, as Europeans tend to do. And yes, this new movement will ultimately be good for Europeans, as it is the de facto evolution of nationalist thought, which is the natural state of high-spirited, enlightened human beings, such as Europeans.

So, in some ways, the left is correct in their accusation that Trump is literally Hitler, except this time round the ruthless efficiency will be for the good of America, and the world at large, when the power of European enlightenment is harnessed and administered under one ethnic flag, for the benefit of all.

This European revolution is an essentially Anglo revolution that doesnt just have its roots in Magna Carta, for there is a link even further back than that with the Molmutine laws put in place in the British Isles by Dunvallo Molmutius in 400 bc. It are these laws that distinguishes those people of the Isles from those of continental mainland Europe, which is still visible today in the fight for EU brexit, by the traditional English, Cymri and few Picts that remain (see the video below for the suppressed history of the people of the British Isles).

Newton’s Apple Tree

by 5ocietyx

newtons-apple-tree

At the turn of the twentieth century it was decided by the Crown that Bushy House was to be offered to the distinguished gentlemen of the Royal Society for the founding of the National Physical Laboratory.

Bushy House is typical of this part of the world at the time, an ornate country house or stately villa set in acres of landscaped gardens and it would prove a perfect setting for the finest minds in the land to gather to share ideas and work on world-changing inventions such as the concept and application of packet-switching on electronic networks that is recognized by the Internet Society to have greatly influenced the creation of the Internet.

The story of how Newton’s Apple Tree ended up growing in the garden of Bushy House is picked up first by fellow arcadian and frequenter of Chiswick House ‘Voltaire’ who in the year of 1727 first published the account of how Newton developed the law of gravity.

“Isaak Newton walking in his garden had the first Thought of his System of Gravitation, upon seeing an apple fall from a tree.”

Sadly, this iconic little apple tree was blown down in a tempest in the year 1820. Or so the story goes.

But the story doesn’t end there. Like a phoenix from the ashes parts of the roots were used to grow new trees from the fallen mother.

Many years later Kew Gardens received graftings from this same stock and the director at Kew sent one to the director of NPL, just along the river at Teddington.

It was planted in 1953 and continues to bear fruit to this day.

What this fascinating story shows is how much shared respect we as a nation have for trees. Should a famous event be linked with one then the specimen instantly takes on a hallowed aura and eternal fame. In the case of Newton’s apple tree it has attained a kind of immortality but was it the tree that transplanted itself to Arcadia to be born again from its roots in Lincolnshire with the assistance of men or the other way round?

A further philosophical ponderance is raised. With the original tree still growing in Newton’s garden in Lincolnshire, does that make this famous little tree in Teddington a copy, a clone of the original or is it one and the same tree existing in fractal space it being genetically identical rather than an offspring of the original?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The correct way to drive in the EU

by 5ocietyx

rightsideofroad

As we enter the next phase of the European experiment there are still a few unanswered questions regarding uniformity across the Union. For example, we now have bananas that are the right size and shape, and our door handles are all at the same height, but what about the more important regulations, such as acceptable driving behaviour? With vehicles coming and going from Ireland to Lithuania, switching from this side of the road to that, its about time the EU settled the argument: which side of the road should we be driving on?

Of course, the only real answer is the right side. The British drive on the right side of the car, and the left side of the road, which we shall hopefully prove is the right way. We shall also show that mainland Europeans who drive on the left-hand side of the car and the right-hand side of the road are driving the wrong way.

 

Lets look at the etymology of the word RIGHT.

right (adj.1) “morally correct,” Old English riht “just, good, fair; proper, fitting; straight, not bent, direct, erect,” from Proto-Germanic *rekhtaz (cognates: Old Frisian riucht “right,” Old Saxon reht, Middle Dutch and Dutch recht, Old High German reht, German recht, Old Norse rettr, Gothic raihts), from the (Proto-Indo-European) PIE root *reg- “move in a straight line,” also “to rule, to lead straight, to put right” cognates: Greek orektos “stretched out, upright;” Latin rectus “straight, right;” Old Persian rasta- “straight, right,” aršta- “rectitude;” Old Irish recht “law;” Welsh rhaith, Breton reiz “just, righteous, wise”).

opposite of left,” early 12c., riht, from Old English riht, which did not have this sense but meant “good, proper, fitting, straight”

In opposition to ‘left’ (Latin ‘sinister’) we find the usual PIE root (*dek-) is represented by Latin dexter. Other derivations on a similar pattern to English ‘right’ are French ‘droit’, from Latin directus “straight;” Lithuanian ‘labas’, literally “good;” and Slavic words (Bohemian pravy, Polish prawy, Russian pravyj) from Old Church Slavonic ‘pravu’, literally “straight,” from PIE *pro-, from root *per- (1) “forward, through”

Queen Elizabeth I

‘Right’ is a homonym, a word with (multiple, but ultimately) two meanings, one being ‘opposite of left’, and the other ‘straight’ or ‘just’. If we look at how many other words in the English language contain the word ‘right’, or derivations of it, we can clearly see the fundamental meaning. For example Upright, righteous and right-minded are simple English phrases based on ‘right’, and from the Latin ‘regere’ – which meant ‘just’, ‘correct’ etc. as well as ‘to rule’ (from the PIE root ‘reg’) – we get the following English words: erect, correct, direct, rector, reign, regal, royal, regulate, register, regular, regiment and region. The same goes for nearly all the other languages in the Proto-Indo-European family, some derivative of the word ‘right’ or its root ‘reg’ means both ‘opposite of left’ and ‘to rule/correct/straight/good’. It’s almost impossible to say something is correct without using a word that has the root ‘reg’ (one only has to read back over this piece to confirm this).

 

Lets say then that right is correct. Does this mean that driving on the right side of the road is also correct? A ‘No’ would seem to contradict our theory, but we are remember only talking about where you sit in the car. We must also touch on the symbolic nature of the car, and the road it drives on, if we are to draw a satisfactory conclusion regarding the correct side of the road to drive on.

We propose that the Road is a representation of the left-handed, curved, Yin or feminine principle. Unlike the Car (whom we shall also psychoanalyse) a road is passive in the act of driving, and has no moving parts. It lays ahead, stretched wide-open waiting for us to go down it. Road workers lay roads; they are covered with Yin-like broken white lines (unless its the ‘hard shoulder’), they curve and dip, and occasionally are slick and wet, bursting at the drains from the water filling their fallopian pipework. Roundabouts and circular, motherly signs guide and advise you on your journey, pleading with you to drive safely, and only occasionally asking you to ‘give way’.

A car ‘on the other hand’ can quite easily be shown to represent the right-handed, straight-line, Yang or male principle. All moving parts, a car is built on precision engineering and has a forward-pointed aerodynamic shape. Driving a car is about speed and reaction times. They are the spear, and they are the rocket. They are the penis, hard and pointed, thrusting itself into space. Looking under the hood can be equated to pulling back the foreskin, or hood, of the penis. You can be king of the road on that wide-open highway, or you can be Lewis Hamilton in Pole position, with only your helmet visible, racing to the finish line (on a round track of course, the feminine), where, if you are the victor, you can climax champagne. In evolutionary terms, to finish first would be beneficial to the continued survival of your genes. It is an instinct-driven symbol of dominance and can be traced back in Humans tens of thousand, if not hundreds of thousands of years – although in Formula 1 they don’t make the loser eat the soggy biscuit.

Lewis Hamilton coming first

Note: The act of entering a car could be said to symbolise re-entering the womb. We feel safe inside a car, strapped in surrounded by air bags, the mirrors showing a twisted, dream-like world, weird but occasionally observable, like the pineal gland third eyes are looking out of the back of the head, passively observing the world disappearing into the distance, everything in reverse.

So, linguistically, symbolically and even genetically there seems to be a good argument to suggest that sitting on the right-hand side of the car, and on the left-hand side of the road is the correct way to drive. Nearly every language in the EU would have to agree, as these languages – going right back to the invention of PIE – agree. You sit on the right side of the car, because its right, for lots of reasons. It therefore represents the male principle, which means you drive on the left hand side of the road, because the road is the female principle. And thus we have balance.

English know how to drive

English know how to drive

Of course, this is all tongue in cheek, but there is a serious point to make. If we are to live harmoniously in the new Europe, we believe it is important to retain as much of the spirit of our ancestors, and their wisdom, as we can. The example we have chosen to highlight – as well as proving finally that the British way of driving is the correct way – serves more as an examination of ancient wisdom. Still today we have words with histories that lead to the conceptual mind of early humans, which leads to enlightenment, and which in turn gives the seeker a better understanding of the whole – the material, the abstract and the spiritual. A reformation of this ancient knowledge – that is hidden within our languages, our histories, our mythologies and our symbols – is no bad thing, it would give us all a solid ground from which to build on, and a better understanding of who we are, which is essential in understanding each other. But rather, intent on seeing through their experiment and super-imposing a multi-monoculture onto Europe, our Masters are destroying some of the oldest, richest and enlightened cultures on Earth.

The destruction of culture is the destruction of ancient wisdom, as culture is only built on ancient wisdom.

Evolution: was man gibbon a second chance?

by 5ocietyx

what follows is a piece Stan Gooch wrote 35 years ago regarding human origins.

‘Chimpanzees and gorillas both have very heavy brow ridges. Gibbons also have these, but to a noticeably lesser extent. Orangs do not have them. The infants of all ape species have them in much less degree than the parents. In fact the young of all primates look a good deal more human than the adults. For my own money, the young of the gibbon look most human of all.

Baby gibbon

The young of apes look more human because further back in evolutionary time the adult ancestors of these primates were more human. The eighteen-week-old chimpanzee foetus looks quite amazingly human. These creatures have become more ape-like, after an initially closer start to ourselves, an example of devolution. A second, more important point is that young apes look more like us because we have managed to play one of nature’s oldest tricks – that of preserving child-like characteristics into adult life. This process is called neotony and is one of nature’s commonest methods of continuing the evolution of a species, in particular for backing it out of a dead-end. We have, for example, the flat face of the baby chimp, gorilla and gibbon, not the jutting muzzle of the adult. The process of neotony is central to any understanding of man’s evolution, and in particular to my own views.

another baby gibbon

One last word in favour of gibbons. Bernard Campbell states significantly: ‘The evidence for brachiation in man’s ancestry accumulates.’ Of course, with this statement Campbell does not mean to indicate the gibbon as such. Yet, the gibbon is the master brachiator.’

The Voodoo Chile, the African Queen and the Parakeets of Twickenham

by 5ocietyx

Monk Parakeet Flying Flying in Sky

The sight and sound of exotic green birds in the west and south London area has become common-place in recent years.

It is thought that the origins of the flock, which now number in their tens of thousands, is attributable to a single pair of breeding parakeets that were released into the wild.

African Queen

The jungle scenes from The African Queen were filmed @ Isleworth Studios

Some suggest they escaped from the set of The African Queen when filming took place at Isleworth Studios in 1951.

Parakeets in Teddington

Parakeet in Teddington

Another theory romantically attributes the ‘Voodoo Child’ Jimi Hendrix who it is said released them as a symbol of love in Carnaby Street in the Sixties.

Some people see them as a noisy unwanted alien pest that is displacing native British birds from their habitats through sonar dominance and weight of numbers. Others see them as an exotic and beautiful addition to our feathered fraternity of friends.

Parakeet takes flight..

Fortean Times however thinks the truth of where they came from is more mundane:

Feral parrots have been recorded in London since 1855. A study by Oxford University biologists of the rose-ringed, or ring-necked, parakeet (Psitacula krameri), suggests that London’s parrot population may reach 100,000 by 2010, having grown from fewer than 500 in 1983. They are long-lived birds with no natural predators in Britain, and it’s feared they will become serious pests to agriculture and biodiversity. They are now found as far west as Wales and as far north as Glasgow. There are already more parakeets in London than there are nightingales. Their recent population explosion is perhaps explained by a warmer climate, and by the spread of garden bird-feeders. The likeliest explanation for their origins, say experts, is disappointingly mundane: they probably escaped, and were released, from aviaries, pet shops and private homes. Quick – close that window!

The Peacocks of Kew Gardens

by 5ocietyx

Video taken April 2013 by 5ocietyx @ Kew Gardens

In modern times, peacocks gained a bad rep for being squawking show-offs strutting around like they were royalty with a trailing plumage longer than Princess Diana’s wedding gown.

But this wasn’t always the case. Throughout history and in various traditions, the peacock was known as a mystical bird with phoenix-like attributes and associated with royalty, rejuvenation, spirititual awakening and immortality.

If nature had not created them and a fiction writer were to invent a fantastical creature along the lines of a peacock the reader would be required to suspend disbelief such is their seemingly implausible design.

Yet the 5ociety managed to catch up with one of these magnificent birds recently in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and captured it displaying.

Is our current perception of the peacock a modern symbol of how we as humans have been intentionally prevented from knowing our true nature and should we look again to the proud peacock and learn from it how to display our beauty, integrity and true colours of who we really are?

Other qualities possessed by the peacock include vision, guidance, holiness, protection, refinement, incorruptability,  and watchfulness.

Video taken April 2013 by 5ocietyx

Yet the peacocks of Kew are not the only ‘mythical’ birds with a bad rep to grace royal Brentford…

Avia Venefica provides a definitive explanation of the symbolism of the peacock:

In Greco-Roman mythology the Peacock is identified with Hera (Juno) who created the Peacock from Argus whose hundred eyes (seen on the tail feathers of the Peacock) symbolize the vault of heaven and the “eyes” of the stars.

In Hinduism the Peacock is associated with Lakshmi who is a deity representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and good luck.

Similar to Lakshmi, the Peacock is associated with Kwan-yin in Asian spirituality. Kwan-yin (or Quan Yin) is also an emblem of love, compassionate watchfulness, good-will, nurturing, and kind-heartedness. Legend tells us she chose to remain a mortal even though she could be immortal because she wished to stay behind and aid humanity in their spiritual evolution.

In Babylonia and Persia the Peacock is seen as a guardian to royalty, and is often seen in engravings upon the thrones of royalty.

In Christianity the Peacock symbolism represents the “all-seeing” church, along with the holiness and sanctity associated with it. Additionally, the Peacock represents resurrection, renewal and immortality within the spiritual teachings of Christianity.

Themes of renewal are also linked to alchemical traditions to, as many schools of thought compare the resurrecting phoenix to the modern-day Peacock.

Super Soldiers to be powered by viruses?

by 5ocietyx

A new technique for manufacturing batteries has been developed by scientists, which involves reprogramming viruses to build the cells. The ‘harmless to humans’ virus would normally grab molecules it needs in order to build itself a protective shell in its host, but these particular viruses have been engineered to use iron and phosphate molecules available in a specially prepared solution, to assemble anodes and cathodes for the poles on a battery.

As well as being more environmentally friendly than current battery production methods, they are also easier to dispose of, as they are organic in structure. The developers of the virus battery hope to one day create a battery that could be sprayed onto clothing, to power our everyday lives, or to power super soldiers of the future.

“Typical soldiers have to carry several pounds of batteries. But if you could turn their clothing into a battery pack, they could drop a lot of weight,” said Mark Allen, a postdoc in Angela Belcher’s lab at MIT.

The Wild Horses of Newbury and the Yellow-coat hordes

by 5ocietyx


‘The Wild Horses of Newbury’ is a film and poetry recitation by Mark Carroll made on a February dawn in 1997 at the building site of the Newbury Bypass and is a heart rending film documenting the yellow-coats swarming on the ancient English countryside felling a pair of ancient oak trees with manic electric scythes in a matter of minutes and leaving piles of charred remains in their wake.

Seemingly from nowhere, two wild horses appear and try to disrupt proceedings, even confronting a riot police horse.

The film and poetry by Mark Caroll is poignant and catches a glimpse of the mystical nature of the English countryside despite the dark scenes of destruction.  A truly magical moment.

England, what has become of you?

Children of the Corn

by 5ocietyx

Interesting research from the University of Colorado Boulder suggesting altruism exists in corn plants:

“The researchers looked at corn, in which each fertilized seed contained two “siblings” — an embryo and a corresponding bit of tissue known as endosperm that feeds the embryo as the seed grows, said CU-Boulder Professor Pamela Diggle. They compared the growth and behavior of the embryos and endosperm in seeds sharing the same mother and father with the growth and behavior of embryos and endosperm that had genetically different parents.

“The results indicated embryos with the same mother and father as the endosperm in their seed weighed significantly more than embryos with the same mother but a different father,” said Diggle, a faculty member in CU-Boulder’s ecology and evolutionary biology department. “We found that endosperm that does not share the same father as the embryo does not hand over as much food — it appears to be acting less cooperatively.”

Quite what this says for Monsanto’s GM corn remains to be seen, but could their bio-engineered master race be poised to take over the indigenous corn populations of the world? We at 5ociety X remain skeptical about the future.

Pelorus Jack

by 5ocietyx

Pelorus Jack was a Risso’s dolphin who helped guide ships through a perilous stretch of water between the islands of New Zealand. First seen in 1888, and last seen in April 1912, ‘he’ would meet and escort ships through Cook Strait, New Zealand. In 1904 Pelorus Jack was shot at from a ship called The USS Penguin, after which a law was passed protecting Jack from any harm in the future. Interestingly, the experience didnt put him off of his important work, though Jack would never escort The Penguin again, and it was wrecked on the rocks 2 years later.

Pelorus Jack would swim alongside a ship for twenty minutes at a time. If the crew could not see Jack at first, they would often wait for him to appear.
