The modern mind is fixated upon the phenomenal world and its experience of it. Thus myth is dismissed as mere childish explanations and uneducated speculation.
In such a perspective, there is no understanding of the role myth plays in human life or even comprehension of what myth actually is. This perspective does not eliminate the activity of myth in the human endeavor; it merely places the workings of myth out of the sphere of recognition and consciousness. Myth thus becomes a poorly understood aspect of human behavior, one that continues to function despite ignorance and denial.
Myth is the means by which mankind provides meaning and a narrative to life.
Myth continues to function as the single most powerful galvanizing force in the psyche.
Society, and this includes modern society, organizes itself around a guiding myth. All societies develop and employ mythology, and it is the myth, far more than any actual event, which determines the veracity, reputation, and light in which the society is seen.
A clear example is the myth of the free man in American society. His freedom is, mythologically, superior to the forces which seek to control him. This freedom is the reason for jealousy and mimicry seen around the world, and it is what sets America apart from the myth that supports the rest of the world.
As a guiding myth, this is the framework for Americans to make sense of their journey, and to understand their experience in the world. This myth is well received in America because it has been adopted by the majority of the people as a functional condition of their existence.
In the broadest sense, myth encompasses any endeavor that involves a meaningful purpose. Thus myth is crucial for the direction of a society, the establishment of shared goals, and the narrative through which to make them accessible. Plato understood this thousands of years ago, that the proper use of myth has a directive and unifying force within society, and that myth can be employed to both illustrate great truths and to explain them.
Myth continues to function in politics, in the consciousness of the people, and in the assumptions of a society. In a very real sense, the first myth of a society is that which establishes itself as an entity in the wider world, nationalism. The nation as a group that communicates identity and a purpose are indeed mythological. It was said, upon the political, economic, and military developments that finally unified Italy, that the next step was to make the people Italians.
Nationhood is thus an assumed identity with a story and a meaningful experience, with perhaps the most critically-a destiny and at least an implied future. Thus, the founding of any nation must include its founding heroes, its own ideology, and its own unique identity. All of this is functional within the umbrella of myth.
Humanity, however, must live in this area of existence, and here, there is no light without dark. The forces that manifest in this world have their own direct complement. With each action comes an equal and opposite reaction. Just as there is a unifying and conflict diffusing element to myth, so there also is a corrosive and destructive side to it. Corrosive myth has long been used to subjugate certain groups, to force them to provide necessary wealth and treasure, to harvest the energy of a people and rob them of it, so that this energy can be used by others for purposes not necessarily in keeping with the needs of the harvested.
The destructive aspect of myth assumes its own propriety and often mimics the appearances of wholesome myth. The two can easily be distinguished, however, for while correct myth energizes and explains, dark myth bankrupts and blames. Dark myth is well represented in today’s world. Like the poison of a parasite that first immobilizes its prey, dark myth demonizes entire libraries of symbols, perverts the meaning of ultimately genuine concepts, and denigrates the efforts of men to build society. No better example of a dark myth exists today than the Nazi.
The Nazi myth today exists independent of any historical reality. It is indeed a myth, for it functions to both sanctify and identify its official victims as members of their own unique group, with a status above criticism and examination. This function of dark myth recently came clear as a certain Hollywood actress compared her condition to the condition of the sacred victim of Nazi myth. She was quickly punished for her transgression. The sacred victims of the Nazi myth are extremely jealous of their rarified status.
The Nazi myth is historic largely due to the rejection of evidence and fact in its development. Nazi myth did not arrive out of whole cloth from the bowels of WW2; it was carefully crafted through the decades to include the themes of vengeance, punishment, and the sacred victim. Current Nazi myth did not fully arrive on the scene until decades after WW2, as the magnification of certain elements of the narrative wasn’t fully in place until decades after the war.
That the Nazi myth functions as a control mechanism in modern society are beyond dispute. That it is the single most important factor in the construction of the sacred victim complex is also beyond dispute. The Nazi myth is a powerful justification for the brutal occupation of Palestine by a Caucasian people with no genuine historical roots in the area. Thus, more than any other recent myth, the Nazi myth continues to have gigantic and unprecedented ramifications in the world today. This alone would make the Nazi myth an object worthy of study, yet the manner in which the myth is used to link into nationalism, and the fictional creation of independent identity for political, organized crime, and military objectives clearly places the Nazi myth in a class of its own.
In order to better understand the modus operandi of Nazi myth, we need to have a closer look at a far older mythic construct, nationalism. Nationalism is a very old mythic construct, dating back thousands of years. Nationalism, in the mythic sense, is the story of a people with a similar path of descent from the divine, or semi-divine origins, to the current condition. The purpose of nationalism is to create a unique identity, a unique experience, and the expectation of a unique future for the group that falls under the auspices of that myth. A natural example here is the myth of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome.
In recent years, the venerable myth of nationalism has been under direct, sustained attack in the west. Modern social engineers have sought to destroy it and supplant the themes of shared heritage with a globalist setting. These efforts, while effective against the very young, quickly become awkward and absurd when applied to a larger milieu. Globalism cannot command the mythic power of the divine, or even semi-divine origin, because globalism features shadowy operators in behind-the-scenes criminal activity to achieve its hegemony. Due to its own very nature, globalism is a failure upon the mythic plane. Nationalism cannot be artificially scaled up to global proportions. This truth is obvious, even amongst the purveyors of sacred victimhood, as they themselves loudly proclaim their right to their own state, their own nation, regardless of the consequences to others.
Some might wonder if the current effort to promote gender confusion, self-mutilation, and rampant homosexuality has its own corresponding mythic base. After all, to the casual observer, several features of the mythic seem to be in place. One quickly observes the overt attempt to adopt a personalized version of sacred victimhood, identification as a group, and a violent mocking of the feminine principle as the in-your-face features of “woke”. Thus, identity as a unifying feature seems to be present, behavior that sets the group apart is definitely in place, and an ideology is featured, consistent throughout the group. Yet the so-called woke agenda is missing an essential quality displayed everywhere myth is present, one which we heretofore have not discussed, mythic thought.
Perhaps the salient feature of mythic thought is memory. Memory is commonly understood as the recall of events and responses one has witnessed or participated in. Yet as numerous studies have long since revealed, eyewitness testimony is indeed the most subjective of all recall, the most susceptible to wide variances, and the least reliable. The question here is whether it is a memory that is functioning at all. However, the memory we speak of is not from the experience of this incarnation. We refer to the memory of origin itself, which lies beyond the confines of the mind, and personal experience. The memory of origin is the recall of the previous step to incarnation. It is the inexplicable wisdom that is not rooted in the personal experience of the person.
All true mythic structure derives from this memory. It is the echo that makes the archetypal world intelligible, and it involves forces that are far beyond personality, preference, or predilection. It is this memory that carries with it the recognition, the harmony, the fit that one achieves with specific mythic traditions. It is the explanation for why Europeans are so moved by Norse mythology. It reveals the cascading waterfall of emanation science, which we have previously covered and recognized as a mathematical fact.
The “woke” and their agenda cannot harmonize with that echo, simply because their origin and activity are not represented upon the archetypal plane. Their origin is of a lower order, and thus their reality only exists as a reflection in the material plane. In this, they share directly with the globalist transhumanist neo-communist agenda they participate with. In more direct terms, the crude energy they devour for their motivation is the realm of the parasite, and the parasite is a lower-order manifestation alone.
Such a posture is absolutely intentional from this globalist cabal. There is no interest in attaining virtue through participation in higher forms. Their current agenda seeks to cut itself off from the greater cosmos, to go rogue from a higher power, with the intent of becoming the gods of this material existence.
In this, the distortion, mockery, arrogance, and addiction to the terror that characterizes the modern west are merely emblematic of a perverse ambition built upon massive ignorance. Ignorance, like parasitism, is a by-product of manifestation.
As to the question of why this current phenomenon has such a grip upon people to the point that it obsesses the west, it has to do with adherence to the lower order of things, the ignorance that gives shape to modern ambitions, and the rite of passage that mankind is currently traveling through. Certainly, the sacred power of choice fuels much here, from bio-weapon injections, to agitating for WW3, to the suicidal tendencies observed across the leadership panorama of the west.
Returning to the realm of the mythic and searching for an illustration of mythic action in the world, brings us directly to the primary zone of focus for all current events, Ukraine. Ukraine illustrates how the myth of nationalism is dependent upon a shared vision, in order to galvanize a people. Ukraine also illustrates the activity of dark myth, where destruction and devastation become the inevitable by-products. Last, but not least, Ukraine illustrates the activity of the latest manifestation of the Nazi myth, as it is cynically applied by the west and its operatives.
Ukraine, in its current iteration, is most definitely a product of the west, and especially the USA. The various threads and influences trace back to the earliest post-war years when the newly minted CIA set up shop there and never left. However, the largest single event that turned Ukraine into what it is today was the Neocon coup lavishly funded by the US taxpayer. It was after this event that Jewish leaders in Ukraine began using the “Nazi salute”, and the elevation of Ukrainian dissident Bandera into a hero of nationalism began in earnest.
This promotion of mythic Nazism was at least partially due to the fact that Bandera was a German collaborator during WW2. The end of the conflict saw the Red Army pushing the forces of the 3rd Reich out of Ukraine via a series of bloody battles, whilst Bandera returned to Ukraine to wage a guerilla war against the Soviets, which the NKVD eventually brought to an end.
The symbolism and military strength of WW2 Germany maintained its’ own underground popularity in Ukraine, even after the demise of Bandera’s war, as rag-tag neo-Nazi groups across Ukraine trained with arms, attempted to revive Slavic paganism that doubtless bore little similarity to the ancestral practices, and vocally dismissed communism.
Despite such social movements, which included music, philosophy, and an effort toward an identity separate from Russia, Ukraine was and is faced with the fact that it cannot lay claim to an identity devoid of Russia. The fictitious nationalist claim actually derives more from an accident of history, than any genuine unique identity.
Perhaps a useful analogy might be found in examining the claim for a separate nationalist destiny with the American state of Texas. Despite Texas’ brief flirtation with independence soon after its founding, Texas cannot claim a legitimate history independent of the Union to which it belongs. Like Texas, the destiny of Ukraine is defined by the destiny of the larger society that it participates. In this sense, a Texas, or Ukrainian history becomes a subset of a wider history.
Statehood for Ukraine was never taken seriously during the heyday of the Soviet Union. It was in no way implied to supplant the authority of Moscow, and in fact it never did, until the fateful day of the collapse. Without the USSR, the junior partners that administered to the “republics” suddenly found themselves to be the highest forms of government left standing.
Thus, the “nation” of Ukraine, its borders, and its territory were not the result of the raw will of the people. They were not forged in the fire of conflict that ignited the struggle toward an ideology, or even an idea of what it meant to be Ukrainian. Rather, Ukraine had nationhood dropped directly into its lap, a sort of default position that almost no one had anticipated would occur. This was exploited shamelessly by the orchestrators of the Maidan coup. Just as the reinvented myth of Nazism became prominent in the post-coup Ukraine, so too did a radical nationalism rise, nationalism which paradoxically, panders to the west even today.
That the Nazi myth is far away and different from historical truth is easily demonstrated. Yet what is rarely noticed, much less discussed, is the inescapable fact that the primary shapers and promoters of modern Nazi myth are Jewish. We can clearly discover this to be true, as Hollywood churns out an endless array of Nazi themes, as certain Jews have themselves observed that there is an entire holocaust industry, as Jewish leaders set up a system of payments to Israel, which some might call them reparations, or aid packages, that are still shipping wealth out of their respective countries generations after the close of WW2.
The Nazi myth is, of course, never-ending. The further away in time, the world travels from that point of origin, the more the lies and bombastic claims grow. How it can be even passing moral to force the descendants of a target group to continue to pay in blood and treasure for an event of incredibly dubious historic veracity is a case for study in itself. For our purposes here, it is enough to illustrate that the Nazi myth is in fact a Jewish one.
It is important to understand this, because if one realizes that it is Jews who have turned Nazism into a myth, one with more than a little resemblance to Barnum and Baileys’ enterprise, then it becomes simple to recognize why the Neocons, who were the primary orchestrators of the coup, and mostly Jewish, would find it a great opportunity to promote the Nazi myth in a post-coup Ukraine.
In fact, one could say this fruit merely fell into their gaping mouths, for conveniently enough, the man crowned with the condition of Ukrainian independence, Stepan Bandera, and chosen as the de facto father of Ukrainian nationalism, is widely seen as a strong participant in that burgeoning business of modern Nazi myth.
All at once, we can now see that the so-called “color revolution”, promoted throughout the west as a democracy initiative, is in fact something else entirely. We can also understand that a very important reason exists for a strident denial of the deployment of neo-Nazism in Ukraine, because the confluence of conditions whereby the Nazi myth was so convenient as a tool for control in Ukraine, threatens its continued deployment across the west as a tool of political, social, and economic repression.
The activation of ultra-nationalist ideology in Ukraine was imported by the same cynical forces that demand payment for victimhood that no one in the modern world is guilty of forcing on them.
Their own fantasy of victimhood delivers for themselves a sacred status beyond reproach and one which is replayed with nauseating frequency. Concurrently, these imported myths of Nazism and nationhood have ignited a war by which countless thousands of innocents have already been killed or wounded, with many more casualties guaranteed.
Ukraine is being destroyed by this descent into the cynical manipulation of myth, and Russia herself will be forever changed by this conflict.
Myth is the single most powerful organizing force in the human psyche. By its very nature, it is mutable, capable of creating meaning wherever it appears. Yet when myth is manipulated for purposes that surpass mere cruelty and used as a force to paralyze and harvest the efforts of a people, then that use of myth is evil indeed.
Perhaps in a better world, the Neocons would throw their efforts into removing the poisons they inflicted upon a once proud people. If America was truly being led by Americans, they would do what they could to curtail the escalation of conflict, and instead of sending long-range missiles, send a delegation ready to listen to both sides. There is no advantage to mankind for this war in Ukraine to continue, as it, in fact, threatens the survival of the entire human race.
Mike has always lived his life on the edge, without a safety net. He is not a traditionalist, although he values tradition. He is not a social maven, although he values a functioning society. In fact anything you might think Mike is, he is not, thus he refers to himself as a nobody. His destiny has led him into the oddest of places, at the oddest of times. He is oft convinced that as in the Hymn of the Pearl, he is doomed to grope around in the dark, having forgotten who he is. His dream is remembering, and his writings are perhaps an ode to this process.
