In Greek Mythology, the Goddess of Necessity, Themis, brought forth three lovely daughters, known as the Moirai (Fates). Their names are: Koltho (Clotho), Lakhesis (Lachesis) and Atropos. Klotho spins the thread of life, Lakhesis determines the length of the thread and Atropos cuts the thread when the proper time has come for death. They are also called the Moirai to denote their descent from Moira, the original goddess of Fate. All living things had eventually submit to these divine daughters of Zeus and Themis. To which degree do you experience this in your life?
It’s important to note to non-occultists that the ancient myths were comprehended through experience in rituals of the initiated. The purpose of myths and archetypes are to bring forward and work with concepts that are without reach from profane human minds (i.e. those who are not initiated).
In more recent times, Francis Bacon, a 16th century occultist, wrote the ‘Novum Organum Scientiarum‘, which was intended to become a new instrument and a modern approach to the method of science. It was a new system of logic he believed to be superior to the old ways. Many people believe this work to be the inspiration to modern science as it is practiced today.
For example, businessmen commonly think in terms of purposeful action as in, for example, management by objectives.
Teleological analysis – (from the Greek word Telos, which means “root”, meaning that design and purpose analogous to that found in human actions are inherent also in the rest of nature) – of business ethics leads to consideration of the full range of stakeholders in any business decision, including the management, the staff, the customers, the shareholders, the country, humanity and the environment.
Teleology provides a moral basis for the professional ethics of medicine, as doctors are generally concerned with outcomes and must therefore know the telos of a given treatment paradigm.
To which degree do you conduct yourself in such a way that you do something to achieve a set of goals either for yourself or others?
Individual human consciousness, in the process of reaching for autonomy and freedom, has no choice but to deal with an obvious reality: the collective identities (such as the multiplicity of world views, ethnic, cultural and national identities) that divide the human race and set (and always have set) different groups in violent conflict with each other. The ‘objective contradiction’ of ‘subject’ and ‘object’ would eventually ‘sublate’ into a form of life that leaves violent conflict behind by means of reduction. This goal-oriented, ‘teleological’ notion of the ‘historical process as a whole’ is present in a variety of 20th century authors, although its prominence declined drastically after the Second World War.
To which degree do you relate to the passing moment in history that what you call ‘you’ is ‘part of’ a tribe, social identity? How is that relevant to the millenia that were, and the millenia to come?
In modern science today, teleological explanations tend to be deliberately avoided since the Novum Organum of Francis Bacon, because whether they are true or false is argued to be beyond the ability of human perception and understanding to judge. Some disciplines, in particular within evolutionary biology, are still prone to use language that appears teleological when they describe natural tendencies towards certain end conditions; but these arguments can always be rephrased in non-teleological forms.
Do you think the mainstream science is scared of ideas that cannot be rationally explained or quantified and measured?
Today’s Luciferians are continuing intuitively promoting the idea of Teleology, for instance Mabuz Luciferi wrote in his article in his blog ‘The Society of Lucifer’, called Teleology: Associate only with that which acheives your goal (blog now superseded by ‘The Liberated Way‘). I think the main point is to make decisions discretely, and choose by means of reduction the choices that further the goals, wether they be short-term or long-term.
All of this knowledge we have inherited from past masters, are still processed by experience by people who have eyes to see.
Today’s hypermodern occultists all process information and experience through the means of reduction.
There is no time to read all the works of the past. The works are there, including the blogs to recognize others who realized the same, who have arrived at the other shore, and to inspire someone who have not realised they were destined to reach that other shore.
The Ultimate Design, is not neccessarily an end, it’s a new beginning. This is suggested in the Greek word Telos. This root is always dynamic but still there as a beacon of light, an inspiration, something that will make you get up in the morning to do the Great Work, just as a sprouting flower pushes through the dark matter of the pavement just outside your door to see the Sun.
Your destiny and fate doesn’t begin or end with you. It does not matter how it will come to pass, because it will no matter how you relate to it.
