Messianism Empty
PostSubject: Messianism Messianism EmptyMon Feb 03, 2020 7:57 am

A fundamental part of the Abrahamic world-view, expressed psychologically as fatalism.
A psychology that carries into Marxism and its belief in the 'end of history'.
It is a by-product of the good/evil, God/Satan, dichotomy that can be translated into secular forms such as the mathematical 1/0 binary, or order/chaos, conceptualized in Divine term, i.e., as absolutes.
The idea becomes the consciousness of a cosmic fact, and may even usurp the real experience of existence.
An either/or mindset that produces fanaticism.
Either Paradise regained or hell; either utopia of dystopia.
After 2000 years of Abrahamic brainwashing the world is dominated by the triad that represents its religious foundation: Judaism, Christianity, Islam.

Existence is conceptualized as an absolute - absolute conciousness, authority, order.
Fatalism is the surrender to Divine will.
Every that has happened is happening or will ever happen is ascribed to divine providence in secular terms there is no need for intervention by the one-god, because nothing can ever break the universal rules, so nothing can ever challenge absolute order - true belief becomes an act of acknowledging this absolute fact and learn to accept it.
Challenging, resisting, can only result in pain and suffering - a hell no earth.
All are innocent, void of responsibility, because they are agencies of this divine order - in god's image.
What is left but to enjoy what the divine was provided and fated man to enjoy, as he must learn to endure, stoically, what has been fated for him to suffer?
The idea of being an agency of the divine, absolute order, offers the individual a sense of profound agency - power through association.
He is an actor acting in accordance to a universal absolute authority - an expression of God's will, even if he refuses to accept that he believes in god because the term is now associated with the triad he's surpassed - progressed from, overcome.
If enough fanatics are convinced of this then Messianism becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy, where each faction, interpreting the absolute in its own way - as it was divinely determined - will be governed by this either/or absolutism which is confronted with that of another - one's own paradise is another's hell, therefore in the either/or dichotomy of Abrahamism, one side is striving for a oneness the other will only nullify.
The individual does not believe he is responsible for how history unfolds, but that it is all part of a universal path - inevitable. When this is shared by millions, billions, then this fanaticism is supported by others and it gains conviction - passion - becoming increasingly more fanatical.

Messianism always has the ideals of beginnings and ends, usually not named but alluded to.
Such as the 'end of history', the 'end of philosophy', the 'last man', 'end of civilization', 'end of life on earth', 'end of history' etc., submitting to the idea that evolution is separated into distinct ends and beginnings, sometimes final and complete.
A psychology born of the dynamics explored in Calhoun's Behavioural Sink. a planetary 'sink', i.e., enclosure, with abundance - up to the current date - yet with shrinking spaces, absence of frontiers (an outside).
An enclosed reality within which the 'outside' is theoretical, and though observable it remains beyond reach - contributing to the psychology of those trapped within - 'herd psychology', domestication, institutionalization.
Calhoun's analysis should be applied to human behaviour as it has developed in urban environments over the last century.

Abrahmism emerges when population increases to the point where other becomes a problem to be dealt with, because he could not be escaped - the fight/flight mechanism becomes a singularity, and fleeing is internalized, creating a psychological schisms between the public and private man - esoteric/exoteric, introversion/extroversion.
Nihilism is a defence against the awareness of self in relation to seeking an internal alternate reality delineated by semiotics, creating the real/ideal corresponding to body/mind.
Body cannot escape other - it is forced to interact - therefore fleeing, using semiotics, becomes of the mind.
In the west Abrahamism became viral when it provided a nihilistic, self-consistent, framework for the mind - conciousness - to immerse itself within - salvation.
In the east similar population pressures and psychologies developed into Buddhism.
Zoroastrianism is the link between the two, each version morphing to accommodate the particular genetics of the tribes that came in contact with these ideologies.
We see evidence of this in ancient-Greek texts and the contact of Socrates with a Thracian named Zalmoxis - which undoubtedly, shaped Plato's own conceptions, as he integrated this monist world-view into Hellenism, which would explain his integration into Christian dogma - Socrates being claimed as a prophet of the coming of Jesus.

That side, the psychology of monism - though it often pretends to believe in multiplicities, integrated into a singularity - is part of the evolution of human cognition.

Accessing the frontier of space - which we are tempted to call 'the last frontier' falling into the same psychology - will alter man's psychology and with time this will manifest in physical changes - appearance is essence.
Until then we can only hope that man will survive its current nihilistic stage - trapped in its own binary mental methodology.

The US is the first Messianic Empire.
It it governed by the idea that it has emerged on earth to save mankind from, itself - freeing man is saving man.
Those who have lost fate in freedom - or have misinterpreted the concept, defining it out of existence so as to make it forever unattainable, or absurd - have surrendered to fate - un-invested in the future, they give themselves to the present - materialism/hedonism - and are comforted by the 'end of times', 'end of history', 'end of man', prophesy; comforted that he lives on the height of the end, able to survey the entirely in the present.

Wikipedia wrote:
A messiah complex (Christ complex or savior complex) is a state of mind in which an individual holds a belief that they are destined to become a savior today or in the near future. The term can also refer to a state of mind in which an individual believes that they are responsible for saving or assisting others.
Contents

Religious delusion
The term "messiah complex" is not addressed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), as it is not a clinical term nor diagnosable disorder. However, the symptoms of the disorder closely resemble those found in individuals suffering from delusions of grandeur or that they have grandiose self-images that veer towards the delusional. An account specifically identified it as a category of religious delusion, which pertains to strong fixed beliefs that cause distress or disability. It is the type of religious delusion that is classified as grandiose while the other two categories are: persecutory and belittlement. A suggested example of this type of delusion was the case of Paul, who declared that God spoke to him, telling him that he would serve as a conduit for people to change. The so-called Kent-Flew thesis argued that his experience entailed auditory and visual hallucinations.
Examples
In terms of the attitude wherein an individual sees himself as having to save another or a group of poor people, there is the notion that the action inflates his own sense of importance and discounts the skills and abilities of the people he is helping to improve their own lives.

The messiah complex is most often reported in patients suffering from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. When a messiah complex is manifested within a religious individual after a visit to Jerusalem, it may be identified as a psychosis known as Jerusalem syndrome.

The messiah complex in such rare individuals can cause unimaginable consequences when combined with narcissistic and paranoid traits.

Gene to Meme
What applies to the individual can apply to a culture/civilization.

In the dichotomy of nihilism, the Messiah complex is accompanied by a rejection of it - the antithesis of it.

The idea that one can save mankind produces the idea that mankind does not need to be saved because mankind is as it was, is and will be as this has been determined
There is nothing to 'correct', adjust, do, when all is part of a plan only the delusional can claim to be able to perceive - know god's will - and to oppose to any degree.

Absolute oneness produces its own negation, as absolute none-ness - 1/0.
