Tee-Shirt Season Is Almost Here.


Pilot light went out on the Sun

Assumption based on the misapprehension that the temperatures of the Holocene are natural for Planet Earth.

They are not natural. These temperatures are. We are simply returning to average climate for Terra Firma.

God is smart. He knows it sharpens his children to keep the thermostat set a lot lower. You could call the normal climate of the planet an idiot-killer. That's what it is. The Neanderthals were brighter because they had to be. They survived a million years of these temperatures like water off a duck's back because their minds were sharp and their wits keen. All others ended up watching the spring thaw from inside of a glacier. You could not beat an Ice Age with hooey and double-talk. That stuff doesn't work when the needle drops. All those talking heads who dominate the culture now and fill that television screen would all be dead and anybody who took their advice on any subject would end up dead with them. They just don't know what they are doing. A phenomenon of the 12,000 year summer that is now closing. This is not grasshopper weather. It is time for the long winter of the ants once again.

I want you to imagine just how swiftly somebody who spoke about privilege and unfair distribution in a Neanderthal tribe would be put out onto an ice floe. They would spin on their ass as it drifted out to sea. Would take two seconds to conclude by unanimous vote they were completely loco. There are just no openings for professional opposition and career whiners in these groups of people. There is too little quantity and too much quality to make this viable as a biological strategy.

I had a conversation with my daughter about this a few nights ago. I told her the most difficult thing to understand is how people so practical had such a rich dream culture and vivid imaginations. They would need it to wind the ongoing narrative of their lives into something refreshing and continuously inspiring through times that were hard, demanding and sometimes frightening. The long hibernations and the constant need to keep the fire burning created a rich fertile ground for a very elaborate and engaging love of the fabulous that was intertwined closely with the natural world. The Neanderthals dreamed with their eyes open and still didn't miss a trick. I can remember when I first read Stan Gooch's books I wondered what in the hell he was going on about. I had to think about it for twenty years before it all began to make such good sense to me. In particular recently I have thought about the Neanderthal's deep love of twilight and the moon and how much it would have contrasted with the Cro-Magnon's Sun Monkey zombie horde. The Cro-Magnons would have had the most intense fear and hatred of the Neanderthal because they seemed so magical and so much closer to God. Whispering to animals, mimicking their calls, perhaps as Gooch suggests drawing voices out of plants and even stones that breathed life into matter- ventriloquism? Or just doing for these things what they could not express themselves? The Cro-Magnons lusted after the beautiful women and loathed the males as incredibly powerful and capable creatures compared with their own meagre list of talents that hardly exceeded spear chucking and burning villages. We know how the Cro-Magnons viewed the Neanderthal. When they elected to hunt and kill one of them, they brought at least 300 of their own people. That tells you everything. They viewed the Neanderthal as a creature with nearly supernatural powers who was invulnerable to ordinary threats.

P.S. I was listening in on an anthropology mailing list in 2002 shortly after I started Vault-Co and I remember these guys (when they thought they were speaking privately to their peers) spoke quite seriously of Stan Gooch. The main thrust of the discussion was how to gradually take credit for his ideas without actually crediting him as the author. They even spoke of the duality that he enumerated and seemed to accept it was the source of conflict not just between Cro-Magnons and Neanderthals but the conflict in the resulting race of mankind as well. They were admitting Gooch was right but saying he should not be taken seriously since many of his ideas had been described earlier by classic psychologists and they also spoke of his irrational claims about his experiences as a medium. There was not much scientific about it, they simply didn't like the man. They nevertheless pored over his notions without realizing they were plagiarizing a poor, broken has-been who had his career as a professor destroyed by people exactly like them.

Poor Stan Gooch, I pity that man.
Tex are you sure neanderthals were closer to God and all that ? From what I've seen, according to this page https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/caveman-politics/201504/do-you-have-the-personality-neanderthal People with lots of Thal genes are less religious , I don't know why. You yourself were atheist during a certain time but now you came back to god fortunately. Well I prefer a Christian to an Atheist to be honest. Koanic said I have a "robust Thal somatype" and a "receding chin" and I'm a redhead so I probably have lots of thal genes but I'm very religious.

Also now I think Neanderthals went extinct because this is the decree of God, races of men rise and fall just like civilisations except races are accompanied with environmental changes. Maybe Europe was getting warmer and that's why Cro-Mags could rush in. Perhaps now another Ice-Age is gonna come and some kind of Neanderthals will reappear from nowhere like Cro-Mags did and rush in, and the cycle will continue.

Typical article written by a moron. It assumes that Neanderthal men would mate with saps women,leading to all kinds of hilarious inferences:

Tex, have you see the X-Men apocolypse movie? Seems to be a melonhead theme there, complete with pyramids and revolting cro mags.

@Ibn Nafis

I think a lot of Neanderthals in the modern era are irreligious and stubborn because they have been embittered by their alienation. Maybe inside of their own tribe they would not feel the need to be in opposition to the God of the people around them. Perhaps a lot of 'Thals feel this same God could not be their God as well because why does he seem to favour everyone else around him but no justice for his own soul?

Stan Gooch was of the opinion they were deeply religious, given to fighting over sacred lands, sacred paints and sacred beliefs. The battles between Neanderthal tribes were incredibly fierce and they appear to take place in locations that have no practical use other than being a quarry where blue talcum was found or else a view of the mountains that was idyllic. So whereas Cro Magnons fought for women, loot and land the 'Thals fought over spiritual principles they refused to compromise on. Some anthropologists point out they shared fishing and hunting lands for thousands of years then the wars they fought seemed to be over sacred sites or monuments. Maybe they thought they could not get to heaven without securing certain burial grounds or religious resources.

Texas Arcane said...

@Ibn Nafis

... and always important ... in these sites where they found Neanderthal males had fought each other to the death, there are no women and children's bones ... which means 'Thals thought they were off-limits for these wars. You could kill your opponent but killing his woman or children might have been considered absolutely unthinkable. Not cricket.

Ave said...

Ibn Nafis, there is a deep difference between spirituality and religion.

Religion is about hooliganism, our group is God's chosen and the other groups are crap. Add to that various superstitions like not mixing meat and milk, not eating meat on Fridays etc. Even Jesus Christ said that a herder gets out on the Sabbath to rescue a lost lamb, thus turning this hullabaloo on its head. Christian religion was never about the message of Christ in the first place, simply because it became the religion of the Opposition and then the religion of the Empire. Not a lot of room for the message of Christ in all these political intrigues.

Buddhism is not better, what I saw in a Buddhist country was a lot of agressive begging by apprentice monks and Buddha statues made of solid gold and weighting several tons. I won't talk about other religions, but you get the general idea.

Neanderthals were most certainly spiritual, which is something that can't get formalized. Actually, formalization is a hindrance to a spiritual worldview.

Watching "Koyaanisuatsi" or "Baraka" is something that is somewhat spiritual, yet you can't build any religion upon that.

Ibn Nafis said...

@Texas Arcane Oh yeah I saw somewhere those places where they found bones indicating only males were killed, if I recall, war regulated with rules such as not killing women or children is a K-selected trait

@Ave

Yeah I see what you're talking about but I think what you want instead of religion is some weird spiritual cults with rituals, like ancient blacks in Africa. Look, analyse quickly, compare the biggest civilisations in the world, most of them had a structured religion, the kind which you reject.
Check this:
http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2016/51/1482399440-regalkalyptic.png
What you see here is that when civilisations aren't in decline, lots of Sapiens K-selected traits appear.
And your spirituality thing is on the right side which means it goes with civilisational decline. Structured puritanist religions are needed for civilisation. Each time they mixed with inferior populations their religion degenerated into your spirituality thing. Aryans for exemple. In the Vedas you find:

Verily He is one
Single, indivisible, supreme reality.
- Atharva Veda 13/4/20

He is the sole sovereign
Of the universe.
- Rig Veda 6/36/4

He is one, unparalleled
Through His wondrous, mighty
And formidable laws and deeds.
- Rig Veda 8/1/27

There is only One
Who ought to be adored
By the people.
- Atharva Veda 2/2/1

When they mixed with inferior populations their religion turned into Hinduism.

I do not think Neanderthals practiced what you're telling me here. They were K-Selected. Look at R-selected populations in africa.

This looks like what we can find in your movie "Baraka":

Reminds you of something ? Neanderthal religious wars. Do you think blacks with their spiritual rituals in Africa would do that kind of things ? Explode themselves with Mahabharatas and fly in space inside of Vimanas ? No.

Ibn Nafis said...

@Ave

However maybe you are right considering Neanderthals were Matriarchal, they probably practiced Fertility cult, which the populations with which Aryans mixed also did. And those populations were matriarchal too.
So maybe you are right.

Texas Arcane said...

@Ibn Nafis

The biggest K-Type trait is women and children precious, not expendable.

Which is more likely to have been R-Selected and K-Selected? Cro-Magnons with tribes in thousands and polygamous patriarchy ... or Neanderthal with tribes of 100 or so with matriarchy and monogamy? Women and children into the lifeboats first is pure K-type. R-Type Hypergamy was the reason Cro-Magnons had massive populations. K-Types follow strict rules governing mating, R-Types have simple top 10% males get all the females and the women simply oblige.

There is a reason the new hybrid Cro-Magnon elites were super K-types in a very short time. They were the ones who interbred with the Neanderthal "war brides" and their offspring were a synthesis of brains, strength and cunning. Many traits of Neanderthal plus extroverted expansive conquering Cro-Magnons was a formidable breed.

Ibn Nafis said...

@Texas Arcane

Yes you are right man, as you said K-selection is quality instead of quantity which means each life is more important so women and children first, I do not doubt neanderthals were K-selected
However too bad for the Cro-Mags the remaining neanderthal genes are disapearing in favor of more african genes because of this top 10% males get all the females they will all be fighting with spears in mud huts and practicing african rituals except if there is gonna be another Ice Age or any other event which would involve environmental pressure

Gets my award for silliest comment of the month on the internet.

Ave said...

@Ibn Nafis

Ibn, you're showing me pictures of other religions (the Java thing is actually a tourist attraction called "the monkey dance" if I recall correctly).

About civlisations being great because of organised religions, there are local versions of mass-marketing, pretty much like Apple/Steve Jobs cult. True civilisation is when a guy comes along and says : "I've figured out the Earth revolves around the Sun. And I can prove it."

At any time in history you have about a bus load of these people in the middle of an ocean of peasants. Yet an entire continent takes their greatness and makes it theirs (in typical religion / hooligan ways)

"Oh, we Europeans are the people of Copernicus and Galileo..."

Mass religion is necessary to have armies of people slaving away to build your vast merchant fleets or vast armies, necessary to leverage the tiny bits of knowledge very few and precious people managed to make useable.

Now like then Universities are primarily there to perpetuate social rank, only by happenstance do they make knowledge accessible to somebody who will actually use it. It's about the same as the lottery, really.

You have to look at your perception of religion again. I've never met such bigotry and prejudice than among a church-attending crowd. But if in a village or neighborhood you have one truly moral person, then its example radiates and people start changing for the better.

Ibn Nafis said...

@Ave

No, civilisations do not appear because of those guys. They appear by domination of one ideology assessing its supremacy against others to regroup them against everyone else. This is what religion does, and you seem to hate it. Do you really think the Roman empire appeared when a guy went there and said "Hey guys, the Earth is round. Let's regroup and beat the shit out of all barbarians nearby and form a huge empire." No. It was one group who waged war against others and absorbed them. This is what you call "hooliganism". Ever wonder why a huge empire was created 50 years after Prophet Muhammad came ? Because he preached Djihad against other tribes. They converted and in a snowball effect it created a huge empire.
Civilisation is essentially a regroupment of people. An ideology is needed to keep them aggregated. This is what religion does. Everything in the universe needs a binding force to survive by enforcing cohesion between the elements which constitute itself. This is what religion is. Without it they disintegrate.
This is the same thing with everything in the universe. The universe repeats itself. Everything works the same way to survive except it appears in different forms. Everything is a regroupment of smaller forces bound together by something and when this thing disappears it causes death. If you take for instance molecules and electromagnetic force. Without it, same thing, they disintegrate, this is the same thing with civilisation. You need structured religion for it to survive.
And you need this "hooliganism" mentality (which you seem to hate) for it to create civilisation, survive & expand, until Atheism settles in and it degenerates.
Again I'm gonna take Aryans for exemple. They had the same mentality.

Here's what you find in the Rig Veda:

8. TRANSLATION ;—O Commander-in-Chief of the army !
"you who are like the pervasive electricity and President of the
Council of ministers, both of you always conquer and neither of
you be defeated. When you fight with your wicked enemies, you
divide your grand and infinite army in three sections (land, navy and
air force) we inspire all soldiers to fight val[ently."

"TRANSLATION :—O hero ! the armour is beautiful like
the cloud. Mailed warrior advances in the front of the battle. With
your body unwounded by the arms and missiles conquer your
enemies. Let the significance or thickness of the armour defend you."

"TRANSLATION :—O Commander of the army ! who-so-
ever would try to kill our army, whether he be a stranger or one of
us, who does not fight properly or zealously, may all enlightened
persons discomfit him. May God be my closest Armour or Defence."

"TRANSLATION :—O prosperous king or enlightened
person ! as the sun urges the dawns, you certainly unite the lands
and actions. Fight from all sides with the wicked enemies knowing
the properties of all things which pervade the directions. You unite
wonderful speeches and water."

And what do you find ? Again, a structured religion, a "hooliganist" mentality, and one God.

Also I'm sure you talked to the wrong people. You were unlucky and found bigoted people as you say. Not all Christians are like that. And if I understand well you don't like the fact that those civilisation appropriate themselves the work of Geniuses. Well you can't say Copernicus and Galileo weren't Europeans, their work is European work, it appeared in European civilisation. They were whites. European civilisation provided them comfort, they were ideologically in the side of European civilisation. That's just how it is. Without a civilisation they could not have done any of their work.

Gary said...

Civilisation are a myth really.
We have very brief periods where enough true and genuine Christians follow Christ's teachings and the Ten Commandments, and great leaps forward arrive, like schools and hospitals and charity, and a move away from barbarity, albeit briefly. Hence the Romans were destroyed by their own evil, so too will the West be destroyed by its own evil.
But most of the time mankind is barbarian, as one would expect with Satan ruling here.
Rome, the Greeks, China, Japan, Africa, most of the Moslem world, all essentially savages, with no respect for human life, no decency.
We live in a devilisation. So, repent, sinners, and look forward to an eternity with God.

Ave said...

@Ibn Nafis

So by your definition the USSR under Stalin was a great civlisation ?

Ibn Nafis said...

@Ave

No because it lasted 69 years unlike other empires which last 250 years.

Ibn Nafis said...

@Ave

And it also caused millions of deaths from its own citizens during this short lifetime.
That wasn't even a civilisation. That was just a toy for Melonheads to have fun with.
