THE CALL OF RETURN Part I


In the first entry of this diary titled 'The Genesis of XELASOMA,' (link) I spoke about how the power of introspective activity experienced in childhood could produce the catalysts of a process that leads us from the captivity of our artificial systems and into an appreciation of the authentic powers of life.  At the very end of the piece, I briefly touched on the conditions of the cultural environment that artists face in the 21st century and how the deliberate contamination of this environment, if left unchallenged by counteractive growth, will only accelerate the global nihilist activity that not only contaminates the cultural space but in turn, degenerates the constitution of those members within it.  

The seeds of the regenerative process that will reactivate our cultural and creative roots are nowhere to be found in this artificial imposter construct (though it regularly harvests and rearticulates our creative elements within its own system); this new regenerative process is one that grows out naturally from the individual after they have reoriented themselves to the organic qualities of life that have galvanised the spirits of men and women from all the great cultures in history.  I described this trajectory as a process of return.


DIAGNOSIS


(Gustav Dore - Dante and Vergil in the Ninth Circle of Hell.)

One of the most incredible things about our times is the fact that millions of people are sick and do not know it.  Not just that we are sick, but that the transmission of this illness has been so ingeniously deceptive, and the complications of its malaise so thoroughly internalised, that millions of our people are living oblivious to the fact that they have been corrupted yet still sense the negative resonances of its ambient effect as an existential feature of their waking lives.  

For many, this is truly a nameless disease, yet for those who have begun to awaken to its presence and sensed the epicentre of its source, ours is now an activity of diagnosis and remedy.

Like all diseases, this illness is the product of a cross-contamination within an environment and the corruption of their functioning systems.  Native hygiene and a slip of standards within an environmental system is an open invitation for the forces of contamination to prosper, and as the reach of this effect eventually finds its way into the natural systems of the creatures that occupy the space, it leads to a corruption of both environmental and organic systems until the disease reigns supreme over all.  All diseases must find a host to thrive in, and culture, as an environmental body of ideas and expressions born of creative hosts, is no less susceptible.


CULTURE - THE ORGANISM

One of the difficulties that many people face in being able to make an acute diagnosis is a by-product of their alienation from root causes.  Alienation is where a deterioration in social integration and common values catalyses a fragmentary effect in the social fabric of a society, thereby translating into a disconnect and a stupefaction of those sensitive systems that can relate effectively to the world.  Those afflicted by such a malady may be surrounded by people, have many people they call "friends," even a family life, and yet, at the profound level of their being feel a sense of being so utterly alone and isolated from anything approaching essential value.  

This is a more common feature in the Western world than many would care to entertain.  Its true source is difficult to detect by the minds of those already birthed within the contaminated areas, and we have become so deeply habituated into its malaise that we interpret its effects as an organic outgrowth of our own nature!  We have internalised this disease to the level of Saints, earnestly believing that this is simply the way that things are, or that by conformity to the fact that many people around us do not highlight its negative effect, that it must be accepted as a proper feature of life like the warmth of the Sun or the rains in autumn.

In order to identify the fact that we are indeed sick and spark the necessary desire to become strong again, we first have to understand that despite the many mirages that our condition presents, we are not alienated from each other, and we are not divorced from the fervent powers of our culture, for it was through the culture that we contracted these symptoms.

Here we are learning an important lesson that shall be rearticulated consistently throughout this diary: that Man and culture are always in a symbiotic relationship with each other.

In order to truly remedy a condition, we must first accept its existence and begin to appreciate its inherent dynamics.  Another problem for us lies in the educational conditioning that has abstracted our intelligence from patterns of relationship and proper context.  The intelligence of many minds today is grossly atomised and reductionistic, and our powers to read into patterns of relationship and proper context need some strengthening.  

Despite the fact that our reasoning has become so abstracted from its original core, Man and culture are never in a state of alienation from the other.  Their life is untied.  Even long after immersive interaction with the cultural life, the resonances of that sensory conversation linger and prosper within the natural systems of the body, finding new expression within the intelligent system as potentially inspired thought or even transformative works of art and technology.  The effects of this transference are so subliminal and automatic that it contributes to the reason as to why it is so easy to take for granted as an abiding companion of our daily lives.  This understanding reveals the power of how culture works: Culture works so effectively through us precisely because it is always within us.

Culture is an extension of the human organism.  It is a profound mistake to treat culture as something remote that is only going on "out there" and that we are only in fact "in here."  The reality is that Man and culture, just like the creatures of a natural ecosystem, are always in a constant state of contact; the actions and effects of one transferring themselves effectively into the system of the other.  

Whatever our metaphysical disposition, we must all acknowledge in part, at least, that Mankind sprang from the powers of Nature, so it is only logical that the patterns of nature become manifest in the man-made emanations of its processes.  When we produce life, we rearticulate the organic effect: the characteristics of the parent revealing themselves in the features of a child.  Culture is Man's greatest Son, and so it is natural for us as artists and as contributors to the culture, to seize responsibility for the maintenance and welfare of our cultural system with the same earnest consideration that a parent would show to an outgrowth of their own flesh and life.

It is the realisation of this positive condition of life that motivates us to treat the cultural environment in which we live with the same degree of care and responsibility that we would of our own systems that we rely on for our life's continuation.  The artists can act as the immune system or as catalysts of the viral forces of their cultural systems since they are ones that would shape the constitution of its creative dynamics.  If we, through our own negligence, set the conditions for our bodily systems to be contaminated, then we only have ourselves to blame.  It is no different when it comes to culture.

And It is only when we awaken to the dynamics of this interactive and familial relationship to our culture, that the dark intent of its imposter generals becomes disturbingly clear.  The antagonists of our natural life who have imposed their imposter culture as an artificial imitation of our natural culture, have sought to convert its creative purpose from one of generative vitality and inspired representation into yet another ligament of the great modern machine: the economic parasite that cares not for natural truth or the regeneration of our artistic spirit, but only for the conversion of the West's creative energy into the machinations of its own design and benefit.  


This cultural commandership, like our conditions of alienation, has become normalised to the point that it is difficult for many to accurately diagnose where the problem actually lies, even though it is highlighted in the soul-destroying banality of these creative expressions that continue to amplify in vacuous distaste every decade.

As artists who have awoken to the inheritance of our natural birthright, we can immediately see the negative consequences of where this cultural pollution leads and what we might do to counteract it.  We cannot call ourselves a sovereign people unless we have possession of the organs of life that inform the greater organism of our nation.  If only one of these organs lies within the predominant control of another party who's moral and spiritual relationship towards our people is ambivalent, even abusive, then it is only reasonable that we would experience a direct impoverishment of our quality of life as a direct consequence of this destructive relationship.  When we have poor relationships with each other, we negotiate or sever our ties and start again.  A disease is not interested in negotiation, therefore, we must sever our ties with it and move towards new growth.

We will not make the claim that every creative expression that has been facilitated by this imposter system has been inferior in its potency as the creative power of our Western signal still charges through these inspired creations.  It is the permitted hijacking and prostitution of our artistic life via the machinations of this great industrial engine, and its consequential toxicity towards the existential states of our lived experience that are the certain targets of remedy!  But in order to initiate this necessary process, we must always reorientate ourselves to the conditions of our time if we are to navigate towards the locus of a more prosperous phase of cultural regeneration.

In the next entry, I will dissect the anatomy of this great artificial drive that would aim to smother all Mankind and all organic expressions of culture.
