Just as the superego tends, in what I like to think of as its brain-stem proximity to the spinal cord of the central nervous system, to be pro-superconscious and thus effectively pro-metaphysical, so the ego, in its brain-centred proximity to the eyes, tends to be pro-supersensuous and thus effectively pro-metachemical, deferring not to soul but to will, not to essence but to appearance, not to truth but to beauty.
With the ego, thoughts are too often conditioned by what is seen rather than by what is felt, and there is no surer way of spotting an egotist than by witnessing the extent to which his thoughts are conditioned by what he sees and, as though to derive a modicum of self-respect from his predilection or, rather, predicament, reinterpreted, usually in the most cynically gross and sarcastic fashion, for the benefit of his ego.
But his ego is a sham, with no real independence of external appearances; for it is not only a poor reflection of himself but, being a focal-point for personal selfhood, an obstacle whereby access to the true self, the Soul, is denied, and precisely because it remains beholden – one might even say loyal – to the Will and merely subject to its empirical rule and arbitrary selectivity.
Without the Will to rule it, as when thought is conditioned by what is seen, the ego would collapse into self-loathing through personal knowledge, and quickly cease to have any value. For the ego, unlike the Soul, is not an end-in-itself, but a means for the Will to rule over what it sees. The close proximity of the brain to the ego or, rather, the reliance of the ego upon the brain ensures that the ego has no real existence of its own independently of empirical knowledge, but is merely a means whereby such knowledge, initially perceptual, may be conceptually interpreted to the satisfaction of the Will.
The axial link between the ego and the Will is what guarantees that the egotist can never be saved (in the metaphysical sense) but must continue to remain enslaved, despite his pretensions to intellectual independence, to the senses in a kind of Faustian pact with the Devil, not Satan, however, but Devil the Mother, who more corresponds to the Creator-esque ‘First Mover’ than to any ‘fall guy for slag’ (denigration), after the fashion of the proverbial ‘red under the bed’.
The egotist is already damned by subservience to that which, as free will, is undamned (but not on that account saved), but can only be damned when that which is governed by spirit has been delivered from its lowly pseudo-egotistical estate to soul, as from pseudo-physics to metaphysics, and that, correlatively, which is of free spirit has been counter-damned to pseudo-will, as from chemistry to pseudo-metachemistry, thereby depriving the wilfully metachemical and their pseudo-soulful pseudo-metaphysical underdogs of a captive audience for their manifold exemplifications of somatic licence, without which their ‘race is run’, both physically (economically) and metachemically (scientifically), once and for all, with pseudo-chemical damnable consequences for the metachemical and physical counter-saved consequences for the pseudo-metaphysical – at least temporarily and until the possibility of axial transference to church-hegemonic criteria from what is no longer a viable state-hegemonic axial polarity comes ideologically to pass.
Thus and only thus can the lie of Devil the Mother hyped as God the Father be defeated and effectively consigned to the ‘rubbish bin of history’. Until then, the metachemical/pseudo-metaphysical will continue to rule over not only the physical/pseudo-chemical of their own axis but, indirectly and across the axial divide, the chemical/pseudo-physical, to the detriment of metaphysics/pseudo-metachemistry, the detriment, in short, of free soul over bound will or, more correctly (for it only transpires from male hegemonic pressure) bound pseudo-will, the pseudo-will of pseudo-Devil the pseudo-Mother under, as pseudo-space under time at the northeast point of the intercardinal axial compass on a stepped-up (resurrected) church-hegemonic axis, the free soul of Heaven the Holy Soul, the joyful soul of the superconscious as that which is One with soul, as God is One with Heaven and in no way a separate entity but merely the outer manifestation, so to speak, of Heaven, without which there would no more be any truth (god) than candlelight without a candleflame burning away in self-centred consumption.
