NOT THE FIRST TO RECOGNIZE
Religionists who have managed to steal the state are the winners
in the old order, and they will not be the first to recognize that
the world is changing or has already changed.
55.SLL-55th Southern Late Lent
Cultures that are obsessed by moral rules that concern the body in
general and sexuality in particular are exceedingly materialistic.
37.NEY-55th Southern Mid-Lent
PEACE BEFORE OR AFTER THE CONFLICT?
Where peace reigns, ask yourself whether it is the peace before
or after the conflict. Peace before the conflict is the situation
in which the weak, or those believed to be weak, have always resigned
themselves to their being discriminated against; peace after the
conflict is the situation in which the strong, or those who used to
be strong, have finally resigned themselves to their being equal.
55.SMY-55th Southern Early Lent
THE DAY WILL COME
For all people the day will come that, confronted with
the primacy of norm and value,
they will have to pronounce their last judgment on the belief in god and
39.NMY-55th Southern Equinoctial
POWER FOLLOWS PROPERTY
Power follows property, and moral power follows moral
42.SLL-55th Southern Mid-Yule
'DOGS' and DOGS
Religious speciesists may call their ideological opponents
"dogs", but what do they utter and mutter when dogs come to save
them from the rubble after an avalanche or earthquake?
54.SML-55th Southern Early Yule
How environment-minded is a people that sticks to a calendar
that is not in any way related to the natural seasons, a calendar
on which not one public holiday is connected with nature?
53.SML-55th Equatorial Month
PLANTING THE VALUES OF THE NORM
We should not so much uproot
theocentrist religion in
order to plant
the Norm as plant the
values of the Norm in the faith that they will eventually choke the weeds of
46.NLY-55th Northern Late Lent
TERTIUM DATUR; TERTIUM NON DATUR
There is a third (possibility) besides positivity and negativity, namely
neutrality; there is no third
truth and falsehood.
41.SMY-55th Northern Mid-Lent
CHILD OF TIME
If truth is the daughter of time, then relevance, my sibling,
is the child of time.
42.SML-55th Northern Equinoctial
THE DIVINE STATE
The divine state is a stolen state, governed by people whose
sense of justice with regard to fellow citizens with different
has disappeared under a thick layer of
47.SEM-55th Northern Late Yule
FROWNING UPON FENCE SITTING
Those who frown upon fence sitting are right if the one side supports
neutrality and the other an
antineutralist or unneutral cause; they are wrong if both sides
support something equally unneutral.
54.SML-55th Northern Mid-Yule
BEFORE THE YEAR 1
We must definitely be living before
the year 1,
but how many years is yet indefinite.
53.NLL-55th Northern Early Yule
THE DELIVERANCE FROM EXCLUSIVIST EVIL
One of the traditional aspects of life is the existence of
(exclusivist ideologies, thought, feelings, tendencies,
practices) and the need to be delivered from it.
36.SML-54th >Southern Late Lent
What is needed in true communication is agreement with the world
rather than with the belief of other believers.
37.NLL-54th Southern Mid-Lent
WHOLE FLOODS OF BLASPHEMIES
Whole floods of exclusivities, ethnic and sexual and age- and
class- and thought-related and so on and so forth, have been
poured upon this Earth; whole floods of blasphemies against
45.SEM-54th Southern Equinoctial
'THOU SHALT NOT KILL'
A religious injunction is not 'Thou shalt not kill',
as many people have believed, but 'Thou shalt not kill', for on
theocentrist grounds it
is not at all wrong in itself to kill or to murder;
what is wrong is to do something that
the Supreme Authority has expressly arrogated to Himself.
Monotheist sacred books are full of cases in which that
Authority slaughters people or peoples that feel or think
differently from Himself, or in which such a slaughter is
promised to them.
53.EQU-54th Southern Mid-Yule
THE RADICAL REVOLUTION IN DENOMINATIONALISM
The radical revolution in
that norms and values do not revolve around a god, as in theism, or man,
as in anthropocentric atheism, but that we, with or without a supreme
being, revolve around norms and values at a universal center.
53.SEM-54th Southern Early Yule
The problem with
that it hates so much, except alethic arrogance, and that it loves so much,
except alethic modesty or humility.
(Alethic means truth-related. Alethic
modesty is the moral quality of being silent
or of saying that one does not know the truth, instead of
claiming that one does, while telling falsehoods or drawing
upon one's own or someone else's imagination.
'humility' is not something to be approved of in a
catenical context, unless it serves neutrality indirectly, it
can be something praiseworthy in a noncatenical context such
as that of truth and falsity.)
47.NMY-54th Equatorial Month
THOUGHT OR REALITY?
In philosophy it is the quality of thought which counts;
in ideology the quality of reality. Philosophical
combines the two: it improves thought to better know what improves reality.
37.NLL-54th Northern Late Lent
"The way of the exclusivistic is an abomination unto the
'e loves the person
that follows after
42.SEY-54th Northern Mid-Lent
SELF-EXISTENT BEINGS, NOT CRITTERS
We are self-existent beings, not creatures, let alone creationist
critters, for we are disgusted by the speciesist arrogance of believing
that the whole world, human and nonhuman, would have been created
by some anthropomorphic, anthropopathic or anthropoid god.
46.NLY-54th Northern Equinoctial
A POLITICAL PERVERSION
A monarchy is a political system in which the private affairs of a couple
of individuals are officially perverted into public affairs of state.
53.SML-54th Northern Late Yule
Exclusivists of the
sexist, ethnocentrist and monarchist stripe say: "T for Tommy,
R for Robert, I for Isaac, N for Nelly and P for Peter".
Inclusivists say: "T for
True, R for
Relevant, I for
Inclusive, N for
Neutral and P for
53.SEL-54th Northern Mid-Yule
WHEN REASON CANNOT IMPOSE ITS WAY
When reason cannot impose its way (yet), naturalists go by the light of
guess and by God.
53.SML-54th Northern Early Yule
Nothing arbitrary will last forever — no muddy 'Common Era' calendar,
no 'standard spelling' unrelated to pronunciation, no state borders
natural or national lands.
53.SML-53rd Southern Late Lent
Reactionaries are birds that fly backwards. They do not care
about where humankind is going; they just want to see where they
38.SEY-53rd Southern Mid-Lent
'GOD AND MAMMON'
It is true, 'ye cannot serve God and Mammon', you can only serve
46.NLY-53rd Southern Early Lent
WHOLE COUNTRIES OF ONE MIND
Whole countries of one mind exist in spirit only.
45.SMY-53rd Southern Equinoctial
THIEF OF STATE
Religionists who steal
the state in order to foist their own religious rules and theist symbols
on all its citizens turn their god into a Thief of State.
52.SEY-53rd Southern Mid-Yule
HIGH AND LOW
Those who have searched high and low have not looked everywhere.
42.NML-53rd Southern Early Yule
A religion or other ideology that illegitimizes every form of
sexuality except the sex needed for procreation (if any)
degenerates into a kitchen religion with all emphasis on food, food
and food, or on eating and drinking, eating and drinking, and eating
Moreover, and perhaps more seriously, it forces human
beings to spend more time on procreation than is good for the Earth,
and in the end for humanity itself.
52.SMY-53rd Equatorial Month
DEPART FROM ME
"Depart from me, you fools, into everlasting
which was designed for those believing in supernatural promises
41.SEM-53rd Northern Late Lent
LET THE SHEEP ...
Let the sheep that leaps over the ditch
not follow the flock but the right reason.
53rd Northern Mid-Lent
May the sheep that leaps over the ditch not follow the flock but
the right reason
No-one should visit TRINPsite or a TRINPsite document because
others have or have not visited it before.
After all, a page may be viewed by one person or a
few people for the right reason and by a great many people
for the wrong reason.
There are two kinds of people who love history:
first, those who want to maintain history;
and second, those who want to make history.
53rd Northern Equinoctial
They blame those who believe in nature for their materialism.
But what their own creation adds is no more than some theatrical form of
extrapolated materialism: a humanlike god putting the physical world
together, as strong as a thousand dinosaurs, as male as a dozen stone
phalluses, and as pathetic as a million of themselves.
53rd Northern Late Yule
THE WHEEL FOR ALL PEOPLE
The Wheel may have been invented by a person of a certain sex, age, color,
weight and other such characteristics, at a certain place and at a certain
time, yet this does not mean that it has been invented for people of the
same sex, age, color or weight only, let alone for people of the same
place and time exclusively.
All these factors were irrelevant to the invention of
the Wheel, and are
irrelevant to its being true and useful.
In the irrelevance of these characteristics of the inventor and of the
invention to the truth and usefulness of the Wheel lies its very
inclusiveness: the Wheel can be
made to move and will move for all people everywhere and forever.
No human on Earth can claim the Wheel as his or her exclusive property; no
group on Earth can reject the Wheel as foreign.
53.NEY-53rd Northern Mid-Yule
EVERYONE AN EGOIST?
If everyone is an egoist, then let us be or become one of those
egoists who are pleased to see others have as much as they have
themselves and one of those egoists who feel better by also
showing consideration for beings that do not belong to their own
group, community or species.
36.NML-53rd Northern Early Yule
THE LAST JUDGMENT
Hopefully, the Day of the Last
Judgment will come very soon.
Naturally, everyone should be looking forward to that day.
42.SML-52nd Southern Late Lent
Eclecticism is a self-defeating or parasitic attitude, because
if everyone were and had been an eclectic, no-one would have had
a source to draw from in the first place.
39.SMY-52nd Southern Mid-Lent
How pitiable a sight it is to see pious god-worshipers punching
one another on the temple!
40.SLL-52nd Southern Early Lent
As the differences in income and wealth grow more and more
obscene, those without the billions and without the millions are
prepared or even 'forced' to go to greater and greater brutal
lengths to capture their fair or equally unfair share of
It is the increasingly violent predicament of an economically
52.SEM-52nd Southern Equinoctial
Life is the art of trying to function now
and of finishing with satisfaction later.
