The No Hope Diagram

  1. Raphael was talking about light sound and electricity with Lunar Fire Senior ALNDVOD in a dream last night. And he was pointing out reasons why flights of fancy might be attributed to a sunbeam like ‘hope’ and ‘faith; in passing with a physics analogy. And he pointed out that a sunbeam takes a dark cloud, dust, aerosols, pollutants- or some other medium to characterize it. And perhaps true hope requires darkness, gloom and brokenness as a prerequisite. This cartoon made me think of the Sub Genius Axiom: Just because your paranoid doesn’t mean they are not after you. And the Sub Genius Beattitude of total pessimism. This is from one of the sermons of Reverand Ivan Stang: You

    gotta stop blaming yourself for your failures, and get back to BLAMING THE

    CONSPIRACY. The CONSPIRACY tries to tell you that a failed experiment is

    BAD and that you’re a LOSER if you aren’t RICH and GOOD LOOKING and that

    it’s somehow ABNORMAL and UNHEALTHY to be depressed, pessimistic, consumed

    with HATE, and DESPERATELY seeking SLACK in STRANGE PLACES. Those are

    actually APPROPRIATE RESPONSES to a world that’s SO FUCKED UP, that even

    the CHURCH OF THE SUBGENIUS starts to make sense by comparison.

    The idea that it’s NORMAL for everything to be all cheery and hunky-dory

    and slackful and lovey is a LIE. They ACT like it ALREADY IS, so that

    YOU’LL STOP TRYING TO MAKE IT THAT WAY, someday, in the far future or

    1998, whichever comes first… ’cause that makes THEM look BAD. As the

    old bumper sticker says, “I’D RATHER BE KILLING OPTIMISTS.” That way lies

    a life of QUIET DESPARATION.

    We SubGenii choose to lead lives of EAR-SPLITTING desperation. We MUST

    HAVE SLACK, but we’re getting force-fed a gross pablum of FALSE SLACK, we

    ARE being ripped off every day, and we are NOT going to sit back and be

    POLITE while we’re getting FUCKED. When they won’t let you have the kind

    of Slack you need, then have they given you any CHOICE but to obtain SLACK

    THROUGH HATE?? The Christians and New Agers like to channel their false

    “LOVE”. Well that’s JUST FINE for them, since they comprise 95% of the

    OverPop. By the same token the SubGenius channels its TRUE HATE, tapping

    the pure HATE-FORCE of the Universe and transmute it from STUPIDITY into

    SLACK. Just like I have to transmute my mood from stupid to slack as the

    day wears on. Although Slack is the energy which powers the universe, it

    is equally true that invisible, seething, self-contained HATE PARTICLES

    comprise the MISSING MATTER of the universe, the hidden MASS for which

    quantum physicists still search.

    Hate and failure are part of NATURE and must needs be UNSUSPECTED PATHS TO

    SLACK. The life of a SubGenius, marooned in a sea of humans, can be hard.

    You might think we Preachers of “Bob,” we fishers of wallets have the most

    Slack-filled job in the world, next to “Bob”… but no, it ain’t easy.

    We took on the job of PULLING GOD’S LEG — and well, it’s a BIG LEG my

    friend. A MIGHTY big leg to pull. I’m the first to admit, devoting your

    heart mind and soul to “Bob” won’t solve all your problems. But it WILL

    help you BLOW THEM OFF. And sometimes, when they’re bad enough, that

    comes FIRST.

    Besides, you may not yet have any INKLING what Slack REALLY IS for YOU.

    Oh, you THINK you do. You think “Oh, if I had such and such then I’d have

    Slack. If she loved me I’d have Slack.” And you actually start “WORKING

    TOO HARD FOR SLACK.” You build up to an OBSESSED FEVER PITCH reaching for

    that gold ring of Slack… trying to smoke the pot of Slack at the end of

    the Rainbow… and you OD!! — it BACKFIRES, snowballs out of control.

    It becomes “black” or “sullied” Slack, AntiSlack. And that’s when “Bob”

    steps in and saves your ass. BY TOTALLY FUCKING UP YOUR PATHETIC

    INSIGNIFICANT DREAMS.

  2. Isn’t that the “no hope” message entirely contrary to the whole concept of trying to bring Thelema to a broader audience, and eventually have Liber OZ be the ONLY rule of law? Interesting / funny, yes, I’ll give it that.. I just don’t understand the point of the “no hope” thing.. Look how far the world has come in just the last 10 years, and it’s only speeding up..

  3. This diagram shows the reason occupying a very small area. I also think it’s quite apt to show the black line, essence or spirit /consciousness, ascending, transcending reason and crossing the Will going directly to “God.” This is coming from the top of the head, also, which is where the spiritual dew is excreted, cf Liber Samekh. And beyond everything known, is the Ain Soph.

  5. Gotcha, but I’m talking about the note on the bottom… Very un-Thelemic… Remember the words of the late great Robert Anton Wilson, “HORRAY FOR OPTIMISTS!” 🙂

  6. I don’t see any incompatibility. Optimists are those who’ve been to the buttom, and know things have to get better. I think the picture is trying say, basically, that there’s no hope, only action. The only way to make things better is to Work!

  7. I experienced a similar ‘spiritual dew’ when connecting to the collective hologram as a solid structure with the ArchAngel Raphael in a dream- as a manifestation of the Saturn Air Senior HIPOTGA through Jupiter Air Senior AOAZAIF. In this dream there was the sexual/spiritual motif as connecting with this astral plane in a grounded-Yesod-foundational way, if that makes any sense.

  8. I saw this post on other page. It had identical sense but
    in a completely different words, they use advanced article rewriter, you should read about it,
    just search in google:
