What is the Word of God?

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en español In my recent post What is the Name of God? I explained that one must recognize two concepts of deity. One is the absolutely perfect omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent deity (the omni-cubed god), whose acts in infinite space and eternal time are necessarily uniform and invisible, who putatively makes possible and upholds everything that is or can ever be. We recognize that Love is the best descriptive name we have for this deity. Though no physical image can embody all this represents, an image of ...

What is the Name of God?

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en español In his 1953 sci-fi story, The Nine Billion Names of God, Arthur C. Clarke imagined a Tibetan monastery where monks labored ceaselessly to list every permutation of letters in their alphabet and thus to list every possible name of god, fulfilling their destiny and bringing about the end of the universe. With the help of a computer (in 1953!) they finish the job in three months instead of 15,000 years, after which... Humanity has long been preoccupied with knowing the name of god. Priests, magicians, and other charlatans tell the gullible ...

Time to Make Corporations into People? Give me a Break!

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... We want to continue an earlier discussion of the fallacies of the decision of the US Supreme Court in the Citizens United case from a viewpoint of pure logic and how it is a subject with which the legal profession as a whole seems quite unfamiliar. The essential error in the decision in that case stems from the assumption that a corporate person is functionally equivalent in society to an individual. The patent falsity of this concept is well known to political scientists of the rationalist school since the 1940s; however, rationality is not a feature of today’s ...

The Newseum—Vainglorious Journalism Leads to Triumphalist History

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... The Newseum sits on Pennsylvania Ave. in the District of Columbia next door to the Canadian embassy about halfway from the White House to the Capitol. A magnificent architectural accomplishment in glass and some white metal (aluminum?), it contains a vast 7-story atrium. Everything that can be transparent is transparent. The parable for the news media seems rather obvious. And you can enjoy this Disneyesque production for a mere $21.95, for two days' admission. If this seems a bad value, it's probably because all the Smithsonian museums are free and have nicer gift shops. Inside, ...

Why the United States Government is Damaged Goods (Part 2 of 2)

Part 1, here. For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... On January 21, 2010, the 235-year lifetime of the first North American federal republic, which once called itself the United States of America, came to an abrupt end. On this date the Supreme Court of the nation issued an irrational and false ruling, in the so-called “Citizens United” case, born of a lack of any valid national visionary focus that effectively recognized and bestowed on every organized collective entity the full rights and privileges of a singular citizen. Our national constitution was designed to provide a process for managing collectives and ...

Why the United States Government is Damaged Goods (Part 1 of 2)

Part 2, here. For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... When I was growing up in Chattanooga in the 50s, I somehow acquired the belief that the United States of America was the best country in which to be born and live. I gave thanks to my god of the day I had been born an American, and wondered at the miracle of such privilege in a world torn by war, famine, disease, and poverty, in which it seemed no group of national cults could exist in peace. When I went to college in the Boston area at the start of ...

Where Did All This F*cking Evil Sh%t Come From?

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en español It is undeniable that there is often a lot of pain and suffering in a human lifetime. While individual experiences vary widely, over the course of a lifetime most people will experience instances when they are confronted with the reality of an apparently genuine evil. And this inevitably starts the discussion, “Why me? What did I do to deserve this? If God loves me, why is he doing this to me? How can we love a God that would let something like this happen to anybody (not just me)? I refuse ...

Can I Transition to be a Transhuman?

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en español Of course you can. On a normal world, with decent human lifetimes, it would happen naturally as your personality developed; however, the social structures of present-day human society are intentionally organized and maintained to inhibit such personal growth, assuring a docile attitude to the social bullies who manipulate unearned privilege to enslave the masses through religion, government, and business. But these are easy to override if you are serious about realizing your destiny. But would you really want to be a Transhuman? Becoming Transhuman carries with it the personal assumption ...

Transhumans Have Pastfathers

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... Human language attempts to encapsulate how and what we think about a subject and assign a word symbol to that specific encapsulation. Often, however, the more or less random choice of an exact word symbol, either in naming or translation, will change the implicit attitude of the reader to the subject being referenced. We address such a challenge when contemplating the persons who have lived before us under the generic name forefathers. The meaning is, of course, those who have come before us in time. As Transhumans, however, our lives are motivated and controlled by our ...

Do You Believe in Fate? I Believe in Destiny!

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en Español You may have noted that we never speak of “fate” and are constantly speaking of “destiny.” This is a very important distinction in our understanding of how the world actually works. As you become more familiar with the concept of destiny, as we use the word here at VenusPlusX.org, you will see how it assists understanding of the nature of progressive change, as well as providing a positive vision of the future. Many people hold a viewpoint they consider “rational” or “causal.” They say that what happens next is directly determined by ...
