John Dunn original writing

The presuppositions of this world hold us in chains on Dr John Dunn.

Beyond idolatry

Dr John Dunn 2022

Moving beyond idolatry is the Beginning.

Idolatry is to live in the realm of presupposition, to make an idol of the already there.

The ‘already there’ was the realm of Ananke before the Beginning, i.e. the indefinite cycle, the equilibrium before violation, the pre-determined non-being before the awakening of ‘be’ing.

Where is God to be found if not presupposed as existing before the self… as an idol?

‘Deification’, or ‘Becoming God’, is one direction open to the initiate and will put him in good company.

If you do not make yourself equal to God how can you apprehend God. Only like is known by like. Leap clear of all that is ready-made and presupposed and make yourself grow to like expanse with that greatness as the Creator, which is beyond all measures ... For it is the height of evil not to know God.

‘He that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.’ (1 John 4:16)

“I know that without me no God can live; were I brought to naught, he would of necessity have to give up the ghost.” (Angelus Silesius)

“Creation is an act of love and it is perpetual.” (Simone Weil)

“God does not exist. The Ego must create him by making itself divine.” (Julius Evola)

An on-going passsage-by-passage reading of Roy Campbell’s epic poem of the Spanish Civil War. He is an exultant nationalist and celebrates not only feats of arms but achievements of organisation, making live poetry out of the economics and agriculture of Franco's Spain.

Just a thought: To be conscious is to be human. Encounter awakens consciousness and humanises. This is where the magic resides. Human consciousness is magic. Mind is magic in the sense that our consciousness as fully human beings cannot be subject to rational explanation. (Child of Encounter) John Dunn

In search of road history, or bridge history to be more precise.

Mototor cycling to old bridges that are still functioning in the modern world.

Great Barford Bridge and Tempsford Bridge in Bedfordshire.

Bridges built for stage coaches now carrying 40 ton lorries.

I video these and add a little history to my commentary.

Gentle motorcycle touring on a Royal Enfield Classic 500. The historical, quirky and unusual features of the English countryside seen from the saddle are captured on video.

Join me as I follow maps, park up and take a look around.

"...I love riding these quiet country lanes - the type of road on which this Royal Enfield excels, with its low revving, low compression, long stroke engine just chugging away, able to pull even the lowest speeds on this type of road in its highest gear. It all makes for a very satisfying way to travel around when seeking out the historic, the unusual and the quirky points of interest from the English landscape."

Original commentary researched, written and read by John Dunn.
