The same trend is noticeable in the scientific realm: research here is for its own sake far more than for the partial and fragmentary results it achieves; here we see an ever more rapid succession of unfounded theories and hypotheses, no sooner set up than crumbling to give way to others that will have an even shorter life— a veritable chaos amid which one would search in vain for anything definitive, unless it be a monstrous accumulation of facts and details incapable of proving or signifying anything. We refer here of course to speculative science, insofar as this still exists; in applied science there are on the contrary undeniable results, and this is easily understandable since these results bear directly on the domain of matter, the only domain in which modern man can boast any real superiority. It is therefore to be expected that discoveries, or rather mechanical and industrial inventions, will go on developing and multiplying more and more rapidly until the end of the present age; and who knows if, given the dangers of destruction they bear in themselves, they will not be one of the chief agents in the ultimate catastrophe, if things reach a point at which this cannot be averted?

Be that as it may, one has the general impression that, in the present state of things, there is no longer any stability; but while there are some who sense the danger and try to react to it, most of our contemporaries are quite at ease amid this confusion, in which they see a kind of exteriorized image of their own mentality. Indeed there is an exact correspondence between a world where everything seems to be in a state of mere ‘becoming’, leaving no place for the changeless and the permanent, and the state of mind of men who find all reality in this ‘becoming’, thus implicitly denying true knowledge as well as the object of that knowledge, namely transcendent and universal principles. One can go even further and say that it amounts to the negation of all real knowledge whatsoever, even of a relative order, since, as we have shown above, the relative is unintelligible and impossible without the absolute, the contingent without the necessary, change without the unchanging, and multiplicity without unity; ‘relativism’ is self-contradictory, for, in seeking to reduce everything to change, one logically arrives at a denial of the very existence of change; this was fundamentally the meaning of the famous arguments of Zeno of Elea.

>> No.13905256

However, we have no wish to exaggerate and must add that theories such as these are not exclusively encountered in modern times; examples are to be found in Greek philosophy also, the ‘universal flux’ of Heraclitus being the best known; indeed, it was this that led the school of Elea to combat his conceptions, as well as those of the atomists, by a sort of reductio ad absurdum. Even in India, something comparable can be found, though, of course, considered from a different point of view from that of philosophy, for Buddhism also developed a similar character, one of its essential theses being the ‘dissolubility of all things ’. These theories, however, were then no more than exceptions, and such revolts against the traditional outlook, which may well have occurred from time to time throughout the whole of the Kali-Yuga, were, when all is said and done, without wider influence; what is new is the general acceptance of such conceptions that we see in the West today.

It should be noted too that under the influence of the very recent idea of ‘progress’, ‘philosophies of becoming’ have, in modern times, taken on a special form that theories of the same type never had among the ancients: this form, although it may have multiple varieties, can be covered in general by the name ‘evolutionism’. We need not repeat here what we have already said elsewhere on this subject; we will merely recall the point that any conception allowing for nothing other than ‘becoming’ is thereby necessarily a ‘naturalistic’ conception, and, as such, implies a formal denial of whatever lies beyond nature, in other words the realm of metaphysics— which is the realm of immutable and eternal principles. We may point out also, in speaking of these anti-metaphysical theories, that the Bergonian idea of pure duration’ corresponds exactly with that dispersion in instantaneity to which we alluded above; a pretended intuition modeled on the ceaseless flux of the things of the senses, far from being able to serve as an instrument for obtaining true knowledge, represents in reality the dissolution of all possible knowledge.

>> No.13905264

This leads us to repeat an essential point on which not the slightist ambiguity must be allowed to persist: intellectual intuition, by which alone metaphysical knowledge is to be obtained, has absolutely nothing in common with this other ‘intuition’ of which certain contemporary philosophers speak: the latter pertains to the sensible realm and in fact is sub-rational, whereas the former, which is pure intelligence, is on the contrary supra-rational. But the moderns, knowing nothing higher than reason in the order of intelligence, do not even conceive of the possibility of intellectual intuition, whereas the doctrines of the ancient world and of the Middle Ages, even when they were no more than philosophical in character, and therefore incapable of effectively calling this intuition into play, nevertheless explicitly recognized its existence and its supremacy over all the other faculties. This is why there was no rationalism before Descartes, for rationalism is a specifically modern phenomenon, one that is closely connected with individualism, being nothing other than the negation of any faculty of a supra- individual order. As long as Westerners persist in ignoring or denying intellectual intuition, they can have no tradition in the true sense of the word, nor can they reach any understanding with the authentic representatives of the Eastern civilizations, in which everything, so to speak, derives from this intuition, which is immutable and infallible in itself, and the only starting-point for any development in conformity with traditional norms

Hello Whiteheadfag, I wanted to let you know that if you didn't read Guenon's writing on metaphysics than you have little chance of understanding where his societal critiques are coming from or why they are important, if you read his first book and then read his books on metaphysics (Man and His Becoming, Symbolism of the Cross, Multiple States etc) than all will become clear, heck you may even find that you like it

this respect, for he never ceased to declare himself a materialist. One further

in physics, Bergson in philosophy, Freud in psychology, and many others of
less importance, are almost all of Jewish origin, unless it he because there is
something involved that is closely hound up with the 'malefic' and dissolving aspect

Has anyone here actually converted to an orthodox religion (Islam, Catholic or Eastern Orthodox Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism) after reading Guenon or the other traditionalists?

I’m curious because I’ve never read Guenon specifically but I know he felt it important to convert to an orthodox tradition, and I wonder if he was a true believer in Islam or if he did it simply because he couldn’t conceive of a life that was in agreement with his deeply held philosophical principles outside of that.

Because I am sympathetic to ideas of modernism, the cult of individuality, etc... being detrimental to society but I struggle to believe in and follow orthodox conceptions of morality and ethics. I’m not atheistic but functionally live as one.

Whiteness just means european people and europeans were writing about it centuries ago. Moreover every other race that comes into contact with europeans identifies them as a group, because they look different, and this is further verified by genetics.

This is irrelevant to my point since it has nothing to do with whiteness as such. What you are saying is that someone foreign to a place identifies the newlyfound people as an other, no shit sherlock.

Also you fundamentally misunderstand white privilege. People commenting on someone else benefiting from a systematic and historical favoring (as in the case of someone pointing out another's white privilege) are not ontologically committed to the category by which one is favored. In other words, they are not ontologically committed to the concept of "whiteness". They are just recognizing its instantiation as the mechanism of oppression I laid out before.

>> No.13907281

If they can recognize who is white so they can assign to them privilege(as everyone else can because again it's genetic) then the concept is real.

Like I explained before, them referencing whiteness as you conceptualize it is not them being ontologically committed to its reality as a category.

Nice posts but ocnsider that:
1. Confusion and contradiction has been the hallmark of any intellectual tradition since at least the scholastics, now it only has been made more conspicuous and faster in change through an increase in the size of the intellectual workforce and the frequency of communications. Only a simplistic view of scholarship in older times would led one to believe otherwise.

2. The "applied sciences" as you call them, to the extent that distinction is fully substantial, have no shortage of consequenceless theories. That's even a characteristic of the scientific way of proceeding, that it must allow for failure and even crucially use the necessaity of failure as a kind of epistemic propelling engine.

3. The "speculative sciences" (again to the extent that the label points to a definite area of knowledge) have always constituted of a mighty assemblage of facts where the apparent and professed unity of doctrine only masked the manifold fundamental issues that stood unresolved.

>Question: how is that justified? If sensible intuition is so feeble and error-prone, why is intellectual intuition, itself a human faculty and in practice just as error-prone as the other one, consider so incommensurably above it?
It helps to understand Guenon's writings if you are familiar with the teachings of Advaita Vedanta. From Guenon's perspective intellectual intuition is incommensurably above sensible intuition precisely because it is *not* a human faculty. According to Advaita, the ultimate God 'Brahman' underlying everything is actually the inner Self of all beings, the "ear of the ear" and the "mind of the mind" who is the witness of all sensory experience and mental activity as the pure awareness which illuminates these various objects while remaining forever separate from and untouched by them as the transcendent subject. Advaita like Kant is critical idealist in that it accepts that the mind can only present representations of the noumenon to the subject and not offer any sort of direct access, Advaita also identifies Brahman as the absolute reality and underlying basis of everything. As the transcendent subject is essentially the reality responsible for the appearance of the external world the subject is able to detach itself from the mind through intuitive realization or 'intellectual intuition' (with proper instruction) that it is normally identified with and abide in its own state as the ultimate reality, in doing so bypassing sensory intuition and its inherent flaws. It is this that Guenon is referring to when he talks about intellectual intuition, or jnana/gnosis. It is interesting to note that in his first critique Kant wrote that human intuition is sensible only, and that we don't know whether intellectual intuition is possible or not because we have no way of knowing how it could occur; but that if there was a God or primordial being that it would have to have intellectual intuition because any sort of sensory intuition would amount to a limitation of God who is unlimited. Kant seems to have remained unaware of Advaita Vedanta but in positing God as the subject it presents an explanation compatible with his ideas for how humans (or rather their inner Self who is their real identity) could experience intellectual intuition.

He considered there to be areas of it in doctrine and practice that were lacking but otherwise in his works hoped for a rejuvenation of the Christian intellectual/mystic tradition (by which he really means Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy and the smaller eastern churches) as the best remedy for the issues of the west in the modern era. He makes a concessionary remark in one of his later works that the spiritual practice of hesychasm in Orthodoxy is 'traditional' according to his understanding, but otherwise barely mentions Orthodoxy in the rest of his works for whatever reason.

Interesting answer, I'll definitely check those Advaita guys. Any introductory literature you'd recommend? I only read a commented translation of the Gita like 10 years ago plus a handful of Western philosophers.

Nobody can believe than a whitened Asian is white. They only "look white" (that is to say, conventionally attractive according to the standard of their nightmare hyperreal hypercapitalistic society). The fact that whiteness has degenerated into a mere cosmetic standard (in a pretty dystopian way) for foreigners, and a subject of heated contestation in its home country, is evidence enough that it's on the decline. Btw you'll notice that there is a trend of "blackening" in Western societies right now, not only the iconic porn website, but also people darkening their skins (yes that has happened even in Japan, though it is still rare there), building big African-looking butts, etc. That would have been unthinkable only 30 years ago, yet the culture at the time was already very cosmetic and apparence-driven.

The Ashtavakra Gita is a lucid introductory Advaita text, you can read a translation of it online in a fairly short time,


If you decide that you want to study Advaita in-depth, the best way to do so is to read through Adi Shankara's commentaries, although if you want to do this you'll have to read at least one book on Advaita or Hindu philosophy in general first or there will probably be a lot that you wouldn't understand. The books on those subjects by Rene Guenon, Eliot Deutsch and Chandradhar Sharma are all very good. The single best short intro book about it is probably Deutsch's 'Advaita Vedanta: A Philosophical Reconstruction'

I'm compelled to return you the question. But instead I'll ask this: have you ever talked to a Jew about his faith or culture or assisted to any Jewish ritual? Because if you had you'd understand that calling Jews nomadic is profoundly misunderstanding them. The Jewish are exiles, not nomads, that's what the word diaspora means.

Except Guénon has nothing to share with a pol-tard who worships Tarrant and other lunatic mass murderers.

>Rene Guenon in his book The Lord of the World says: Almost every tradition has its name for this mountain, such as the Hindu Meru, the Persian Alborj, and the Montsalvat of Western Grail legend. There is also the Arab mountain Qaf and the Greek Olympus, which has in many ways the same significance. This consists of a region that, like the Terrestrial Paradise, has become inaccessible to ordinary humanity, and that is beyond the reach of those cataclysms which upset the human world at the end of certain cyclic periods. This region is the authentic ‘supreme country’ which, according to certain Vedic and Avestan texts, was originally sited towards the North Pole, even in the literal sense of the word. Although it may change its localisation according to the different phases of human history, it still remains polar in a symbolic sense because essentially it represents the fixed axis around which everything revolves.

Such Hyperborean considerations were the work of Himmler and his right-man hand Wiligut, who designed the SS-rune symbolism, rings and Wevelsburg castle symbolism of the black sun.

He was an ex-mental patient who had been institutionalized for years for megalomania and schizophrenia.

Stephen E. Flowers has written a book about his runic system, his "Secret King" symbolism and ancient past of Hyperborean Germany, it is all neo-theosophy pseudo-science. Nazis were influenced by total lunatics like Wiligut, nothing to do with a metaphysical north of Guénon or the Vedas, which most probably was never a geographic place to begin with for the World Axis may reside in every spiritual center, even when located in the southern hemisphere, as also symbolized by the Islamic Qutb or 'Pole'


Wiligut was a madman and most likely a Jesuit Masonic infiltrator.
