Wisdom

Updated: Sep 30, 2023

Evola and wisdom: “We, on the contrary—basing ourselves on a tradition much more ancient and real than the one which can be claimed by the 'faith' of Western man, on the tradition which is not proved by doctrines, but by deeds and acts of power and clairvoyance—affirm instead the possibility and the concrete reality of what we have called 'Wisdom'.


We thus assert the possibility of a positive, direct, methodical, empirical knowledge in the 'metaphysical' field, just as science strives to gain in the physical field, and, just like science, it remains above any moral or philosophical belief of men.

Therefore, in the name of this Wisdom and of those who can attest to this Wisdom, we assert that all those who, within the scope of religious superstitions, by mere aspirations of the 'soul', by dogmas, traditions in the narrowest and most sectarian sense, hallucinations, and acts of blind faith, making themselves custodians of the sacred and of the divine, must be divested of authority and ousted.


Those who know and who, insofar as they know and are able…just as those god-men known and venerated by all great ancient traditions must replace those who 'believe'—the blind leading the blind.”


Evola echoes a point made by me some time ago—we can’t live in a situation where people claim spiritual authority and yet don’t know if it’s real. The example I use often in this regard is the story told to RD Laing by a doctor whom he had asked whether he had ever told a patient they had a terminal illness—the doctor gave two examples, one of whom was a priest, and both of whom “took it really badly”.


Now, if that priest was not, in effect, a fraud he would have not taken the announcement he would die “badly”. I wouldn’t—because I know there is another world. Yet that man got up and, I presume, preached sermons and officiated at funerals and comforted relatives and…basically just lied his whole life.

Worse, the Christians suppressed the means by which you can know there is another world—suppressed gnosis. And I still see puffed up frauds online, “trad Christians”, bewailing the evils of “Gnosticism”—and yet all they want is power over other people, they’re just total frauds. Perhaps they don’t like Gnosticism because it would ruin their sadistic little power games and hysterical ego-trip cults.


Frankly, sometimes I wonder if Christianity itself is Satanic. The grounds to think so are four-fold:


1. Personal experience: the only genuinely evil people I have ever met have been Christians, the more devout the more malevolent and evil they are—Christians in general have rancid personalities (and, oddly, given the message of Jesus, tend towards hypocrisy, tend to be very hypocritical);

2. Christianity suppressed gnosis in favour of, basically, lies (frauds like that priest)—and suppressed gnosis with executions and torture;

3. Christianity is atheistic, as the Romans said—it denied the gods as superstition, then, in the end, abolished “the one God”;

4. Christianity has a functional identity to Marxism and Freudianism, was invented by the same people (the Jews), and whenever it takes hold suppresses all independent thought, initiative, and beauty (like Freudianism and Marxism).

Whatever the truth of it—and I suspect that is awfully close to the truth—the fact remains that we should rebuild on the basis suggested by Evola (i.e. people who actually know what they’re talking about). People such as me—people who could go to a funeral and say to the relatives, “He is in a better place,” and actually mean it, because we’ve seen supernatural entities and aren’t just liars.

What is “wisdom”?—I’ll spare you the full etymology, but it basically means “to see”. A wise person is a seer—a rishi. This can be taken in the mundane sense that he makes observations that have become taboo due to social delusion. “You’re just saying that because you want to sleep with her.” “Ah, a wise-guy, huh?”. You know—people who refuse to play the game and just say what they see, like autists.

The slang designation for a mafioso “wise-guy” is, of course, ironic—the wise-guy knows exactly when to keep his mouth shut (in other words, “see no evil, hear no evil”—in the negative sense, that’s actually unwise). The mafia is a conspiracy to stop people from seeing certain things—which then exist “in plain sight”.


However, wisdom doesn’t just mean the ability to see in the mundane sense. It also means in the esoteric sense of the phrase “those who have eyes to see and ears to hear”—that refers not just to an awareness as regards a message, it refers to people like me who hear disembodied voices that tell them to do things (that are often predictions of the future, or lead them to certain connections).


Hitler experienced such a phenomenon in WWI when he felt compelled to move from a lunch spot for no good reason, only for the space to be decimated by a shell moments later. A lesson from “the monastery with walls of fire”.


So to be wise is to be “an awakened one”—it’s about access to supernatural, supra-personal powers. “Wise” is also linked etymologically to “uncanny”—to “the wyrd” (as in “three wyrd sisters”, the witches).

In a mundane way, we could compare it to Heidegger’s idea of truth as disclosure, aletheia—because it involves an act whereby truth is about “dis-covering”, and that’s the essence of the uncanny. “The veil is drawn up, the veil is rent” (as those words were written the candle on my desk caused its glass holder to crack—never seen that happen before, it is a sign).

There’s another link here too, because aletheia really means a-lethe; in other words, “without Lethe”—the Lethe being the river of forgetfulness in Greek mythology. This connects aletheia to a process whereby you go inwards to remember who you really are—which is the initiatic core in Platonic philosophy, an act of anamnesis; an act whereby we “remember who we really are” remember our divine core. It’s a spiritual science (that works inwards, not outwards like empirical science).


The process so described was also found in ancient Egypt and in India—it’s the real purpose in meditation, or any initiatic act. It is the means whereby we leave the river Lethe, the means by which we re-member—in other words, put our “members”, our psychic body parts, back together and activate the subtle body.


It this regard, it should be remembered that the Sanskrit term Cakravartin (priest-king) means “one whose wheels are turning”—“wyrd” derives from the PIE for bend, turn. That which is “weird” is like the turn of the wheel—the wheel of fortune, the spinning wheels of the Fates, or the spinning chakras so activated in the body.


The weird-wise ones are the turners of the wheel of fate, the most sacred symbolic “wheel” being the rotation of the Great Bear around the Pole Star so as to form a swastika in the sky.


Evola again: “In a text [Suttanipāta] we read: 'Solitude is called wisdom, he who is alone will find that he is happy'”. So the wise man is silent, he is the hermit—he is Hermetic.


Oh, it also means, in etymological terms, “to know” (gnosis)—those who know, as opposed to those who say.
