5 blogs on the theme of Love

The great Simone on Dr John Dunn. 5 blogs on the theme of Love

Dr John Dunn 2022.

A series of five related videos transferred to the archive.

Love Logos and creativity are coterminous.

Creation is an act of love and it is perpetual.

Those who murdered Love and continue to do so must be rooted out.

Love perpetual

Only when the practice of living thought is achieved will man move beyond the animal, i.e. thinking that is suitable to the beyond-human dimension, or to the Logos of the Creation, to achieve independence from the reflected thought of animal corporeality, during life. It involves the awakening of the soul through the interjection of Love, the perpetual continuation of the first Creation.

Escaping Beulah

Encouraged by the followers of Urizen, man is dragged down into the passivity of Beulah, where is heard constantly the nauseating refrain - ‘I just want to be happy…’

Until liberated, he will suffer and rejoice illusorily, because the Logos content of each experience is lost.

Liberation comes with the restored marriage between thinking and the will.

We see a tantalising shadow of such liberation in human love…

Love, the originatory principle, is the true meaning of human love…

Root them out

Once Love is found, the Logos is found. The Logos virginally fertilises the soul. This moment coincides with the Creation.

The presence of the Logos is realised because it is perceived.


The doors of perception are opened.

‘If the doors of perception were cleansed,’ William Blake once wrote, ‘everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.’

The murderers of Love contaminated the doors of perception, and continue to do so.

They must be rooted out…

Love and perpetual creativity

Living thought is Love and perpetual creativity.

Living thought is Love, the perpetual continuation of the first Creation.

Urizen and his followers, who would keep the innocents in a sub-human state, know that only Love can cleanse ‘the doors of perception’. They were driven to murder Love and continue to do so.

Violation, disruption and overturning

…in normal everyday accepted modes of thought the 'I' is absent. The connection to ‘living thought’, before it falls, is not only a connection to the Logos, but also to the 'I'.

This connection to the Logos and the 'I' is an encounter with the ‘source of life’. The Logos and the ‘I’ are coterminous at this point.

The Logos is incarnated in the ‘I’.

…the‘I’ cannot achieve the break from Ananke by its solipsistic self, it needs the violation, disruption and overturning of equilibria by Love.

An awakening caress on Dr John Dunn. 3 for the Archive

Dr John Dunn 2022.

Three blogs have been selected for the archive as part of my collection of material for future publication. Short and sweet the particular blogs may be, but they do capture glimpses of the bigger picture that is now well formed in my mind.

Encounter

I encountered a living being, that is, an intelligence endowed with the power to act according to an extra-human order, even if it was active within the earthly sphere and within an animal being. I met an angel, an emissary of Love.

All thought is fallen thought

All thought is fallen thought, or reflected thought, i.e. originatory shaping thought reflected back as though it originated in an external material reality…

Love as the Creation


I think of the awakening by Love as the Creation, rather than an echo of a previous Creation.

Imposing good

Understand the dichotomy before Imposing good

Dr John Dunn 2022.

Restored understanding of dichotomy is the point behind the blog most recently transferred into the archive; and the dichotomy in question is the only one that counts - good v evil.

Zarathustra first recognised the dichotomy, and it has been at the heart of true political, philosophical and religious understanding ever since.

Zarathustra/Eros went down the mountain alone.

An awakened one is Eros: what will you do in the land of the sleepers?

Could it be possible! They have not yet heard of it, that God is dead!

Teach them Eros! Tell them where you’ve been.

I climbed the heights to look down upon the Synagogue of Satan.
You think you see the Creator, but He is not an entity apart.


Corrupted by Urizen, the world has lost sight of the dichotomy, which must be understood anew.


On the one hand there is the originatory principle of Love.

On the other there is the principle of Ananke the feminine-demonic substance, the infinite and interminable cycle of oneness, entropic death, of which the representative to man is Urizen.*

There is good versus evil.

It is necessary to restore this conception of the good as being the justification and highest consecration of any hegemonic aspiration to power.

What clouds the issue are the left-right politics of the Ananke civilisation and its claim for this to be freedom.

The side of the good associates freedom with oneness with the Logos. The more the ‘I’ realises its free being, the more it is identical to the Logos. To be more human is to be more like God.

Into the void

Marx on Dr John Dunn. Supersession reversed Into the void

Dr John Dunn 2022.

Positioning the philosophical musings of The Mythology into a Biblical context - that is the thinking behind the blog post to be most recently transferred into the Archive. Read here.

The supersessionary nature of Christianity over Judaism is explored.

The temptations are Judaic, from a perspective that sees god apart and separate from man,

The blog moves on to explore the economic ramifications of what Karl Marx saw as the reversal of the Christian supersession.

At a secular level it is worth recalling the keen observation made by Karl Marx:

Christianitysprang from Judaism. It has merged again in Judaism... The Jews have emancipated themselves insofar as the Christians have become Jews... Thegod of the Jews has become secularised and has become the god of the world. (On the Jewish Question)


‘The god of the world’ - this god is the god apart, this world is the world apart. In a secular way, Marx is pointing out idol worship and devil worship. Christian supersession has been reversed.

This reversion to a Judaic perspective opens a space within which economic activity can operate, separate and apart from the Logos, i.e. devoid of ethical values. In secular terms, economic activity operates in a neutral void, with money as its neutral measure.
