an extremely concise reading of 13 Neo-Cathedral Proverbs pt 1
Ein Aphorismus, rechtschaffen geprägt und ausgegossen, ist damit, dass er abgelesen ist, noch nicht „entziffert“; vielmehr hat nun erst dessen Auslegung zu beginnen, zu der es einer Kunst der Auslegung bedarf.
1. measure ends where life beginsLife, Vita, the Bergsonian creative force, is beyond human measure. Measure is a technological imperfect application of mathematical reasoning, life escapes its futile attempts to 'grasp' it, even (or better: especially) when human technology is stretching itself to meet theoretical (mathematical, i.e. humanly abstracted) demands. It seems clear that human abstraction (mathesis) has a limited scope (Gödel) but any question towards the 'nature' of what lies beyond is, by definition, devoid of possible answers, which doesn't need to imply that posing them is useless.
The need for a unified theory in physics is a human need, a bad way to question infinity that can only lead to useless finite answers. Measure fails conceptually, the problem is that Deconstructionists don't understand quantum physics and quantum physicists don't care about Deconstructionism. They should though, if they ever want to get their shit together.
2. nature does not need a thingOur attempts to 'save' nature are a sick joke, as if we are harming 'nature' in any way. The only thing we succeed in doing very well is destroying those natural processes that our own lives depend upon. Furthermore, we are very cynical in our suicidal attempts because while making sure no human will be able to survive on this planet we take several million of particularly beautiful species along with us. When at last our tale of 'human progress' has run its course, nature will take a little sigh and start something completely different and be quick to forget about the 'human slip of the tongue'.
3. nothing is an invention
God is a thing so it doesn't exist (see above, later) and death is just a transition (one of the more boring ones, in fact, no heavenly virgins there, sorry).
4. god will not like us very much
variant: "our guess is god will not like her father very much"The Cathedral's ironic take on all the Singularity and Gaia stuff: there's no way of telling for certain what the (inter)(im)mediate future will bring us, what will happen the next say 50 years. Except that there will be a huge number of dead people involved, perhaps. All speculation on those topics is extremely inspired by ideology. People are talking a lot of rubbish to better their interests directly (Trump, Alt Right, Extreme Left, ...) or indirectly (sell books or give ted-talks and have lot's of pussy or dick afterwards).
The Neo-Cathedral guess is as good as any so we guess (i.e. tell you what we think is good for the Cathedral) the way us humans are fucking Gaia (given the quakes and the storms she seems to absolutely adore it) this cannot remain without consequence and the God born from all this will most certainly kick our human asses into deep space and have Her Mum all for Herself.
