Nature’s 10 micro-”commandments,” rules tendencies patterns and self-enforcing survival habits

January 1, 2014

1. No incest
2. No cannibalism
3. No sex with anything other than a living adult of your same species
4. No touching poop or pee
5. Learn how to be social
6. Have lots of sex (be safe)
7. Eat what tastes good
8. Love your family
9. Accept responsibility for your actions
10. Wonder about a world greater than this

Again, no people are needed to enforce these rules, it’s just interesting because these rules are self-enforcing.

But really can’t emphasize the complicity enough here (specifically with reference to #3), where if you knowingly enable others to break these rules, you’re guilty to the degree that you helped, and you all just increase the likelihood of an earthquake, proverbially speaking. Conspiracy is very advanced, it gives accusers plenty of leverage in building networks of criminals (whether of sin, law, or by raw force of self-enforcing survival habit), and there is such a thing as economic conspiracy, moral conspiracy, and so on.

The only real non-self-enforcing rule up there has to do with pedophilia, and the rational adults who have to step in on behalf of children who are too small to fight back, assuming our role in nature, against sexual abuse — which is everywhere in the United States, and anywhere else the Vatican has influence, I’m not going to get too far into it right now, but I’m going to make a deliverable suggestion you can think about, that repeated, habitual sexual child abuse is a capital offense, and that contraception needs to be available to all.

Morally, it’s like much of humanity has this deep-seated hypnotic zombie disease, where we cover up child-rape and say like, “The Greeks did it,’ so that’s a justification. In short, Pythagoras is the OG, Original Greek philosopher who set the stage for everyone else we heard from in the Greek classical period, which oversaw a great evolution, change, and perversion. Pythagoras, and the person writing these words, are united yet again in our vehement opposition to all violence, but especially sexual child abuse, which literally grips this planet as a memetic disease.

Whatever your priorities might be, this is a huge deal, and totally deserves a mention and a difficult retweet. There’s really never a “good” time to talk about something so heinous, but truly it has to get mentioned as a wake-up call.

This is the context for the idea that habitual sexual child abuse is a capital offense.

I literally signed the petition to ban the death penalty in California last summer, and then voted it in during the fall of 2012. I still stand by my reasoning that the death penalty here is totally wrongly applied, it’s an instrument of bigotry and Euro-supreamacist pseudoscience. I voted for this as a reboot of the whole entire system, because something drastic needs to change, and we can’t keep incarcerating people for non-violent offenses. On the one hand, it’s (de facto) legal for drivers to hit a pedestrian or bicyclist (as long as the driver stops, apologizes, and agrees to pay a two-figure fine). I’ve even posted about stuff like this to YouTube, where what should have been vehicular attempted murder was left off as a ticket, when the driver literally traded places with his girlfriend to make it look like she was driving, and then got called out by the crowd and sheepishly went back into the driver seat – after dragging a pedestrian across an intersection, trapped in the wheelwell by a mangled leg. Certainly, the incident also highlights Euro-supremacist ethnic biases, as the driver was European, and the victims were not.

Yet if you want to go rape kids for a decade, just hang a bleeding crucifix on your neck, and you’ll just get transferred around the parish-or-whatever-they-call-geographical-regions, so you can do it to lots of other people as well, with impunity. How does this stack up, for your obligatory “comparison of two disproportionate social laws” dose of the moment?…

In my attempt to channel and embody Pythagoras and his perspective, it does just seem like the most concise way of putting the whole philosophy is to “maximize free will,” and then it’s free to elaborate from there of course. The tendency has to be to create more possibilities.

Ending that brief, positive note, back to focusing on some of the negative that needs to be expelled from this world. Child sexual abuse. And the idea that habitual sexual child abuse is a capital offense. It creates victims who perpetrate the same crime. This pattern creates a zombie-race type situation, where the “bite” is habitual rapes.

This isn’t focused on any gender, male, female, or whatever else you can call yourself, it’s just about pedophilia, and the idea that children are unable to consent, in any way, to an adult sexual relationship. Morally, even between kids of the same age, it’s a different thing, but between children and adults, it’s a crime. A capital crime.

To put this in some perspective, consider Exodus 31:15 “…Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.” Very clear about this, the Bible, Pentatuke, and Torah (all overlapping in their inclusion of the book, Exodus, as the second book) makes no mistake in declaring, under the pen of the word of God, that sabbath-workers deserve to be victimized by deliberately premeditated societal murder, here on Earth.

Based on the tiny percentage of the people who truly follow the word of their “God,” the US and surrounding world is totally pagan, by any rigorous religious standard.

If you call yourself even a sinful member of either Christianity or Judaism, you have to acknowledge that the word of your God commands you to kill the sabbath-workers — a full few billion. Certainly, some passages in the Bible clearly cannot be taken literally (without mandating quite a lot of murder, especially when you consider all the economically guilty people who do business on the sabbath, and do business with the people who do business on the sabbath – all more than enough to share the economic guilt to the fullest extent of sin), yet they set a bloody context, and I’d go so far as to say the only crime deserving of capital punishment is exactly and only child sexual abuse.

Taken in the full context of the Vatican’s stance on banning contraception and all abortions of any kind, it becomes clear that it is in the Vatican’s interest to ensure there are plenty of starving orphans stumbling into Vatican-franchises all over the world. Many of these children become victims of sexual abuse. Contraception is the enemy of people who wish to continue raping children – so I’m declaring a full-on assault of logic and energy directed at all who oppose contraception for anyone – the power to choose your reproduction is one we humans possess, and anyone standing in the way, forcing totally unrealistic “abstinence-only” policies, is someone who is fighting to support child rape. The child-sexual-abuse conversation really ends at contraception with me.

If you’re against contraception, then you’re in favor of more orphans for priests to rape. It really isn’t a lot more complex than that.

Truly, the pope loves poverty, so much, that he want it never to go away. Here is a quote from the pope:

“Poverty in the world is a scandal.”

A doubly fitting quote, perhaps in this conversation, because literally he’s saying that it’s terrible that we even have poverty, and he’s waxing poetically about how we could end poverty, which on its own is true.

Slipping Freudianly with the word, the true scandal is that there’s a giant cover-up of the “even more” child-rape that has been happening with impunity. The scandal is that this cover-up is weighing down policy changes about contraception, which would cut off the supply of children to rape, while simultaneously reversing population growth, as we’ve seen in nations where contraception is available (Italy and South Korea are examples of two countries breeding so slowly, that their population is shrinking). Literally, poverty ends with the end of overpopulation.

If the pope wanted to end poverty, the pope would have to bless contraception, which would seriously anger the remaining child-molesters (many of them priests, many of them filthy rich) who haven’t been caught, because in doing so, the pope would be cutting off their supply of children to rape. This is the blunt truth, and someone has to say it. Truly, to prohibit contraception is to conspire with, and enable, child-rapists.

On a positive note, let’s work to bring contraception into availability for those without access. This is a struggle on legal and social, but not moral grounds – the moral argument is over in a landslide, against child-rape, in favor of eradicating child-rape from the Earth.

I’m happy to discuss more, but this is just a long-winded, important message from Carl Larson, as I refocus my priorities going into a new year, 2014. I’m just a person who embodies as much as possible of Pythagorean ideas, and is focused on keeping alive the torch of the Pythagorean perspective, and cultivating living coral on the ancient framework of numerical mysticism called Pythagoreanism.

Deprogramming Our Collective Vocabulary to Induce Peace

December 9, 2013
Anti-bigotry, anti-hate, anti-racism, pro peace, freedom, choice, thought, communication, humanity

This post is to show a small, profound point on vocabulary. In this post, there are two groups of words on I’m focusing:

  1. bigotry vs. racism
  2. peace/violence vs. security/terrorism

The former terms are more inducing of peace, and highlight our common ground. The latter terms, “racism” and “security versus terrorism” are inherently violent, and essentially self-promoting even just by using the words.

1. Proposing to use the word Bigotry, Never Racism

 

To say the word “racism,” in seriousness, is to practice ancestry-based bigotry. This is because in accepting, as sound, the logic that goes into the word “racist” (meaning that different dermal melanin ratios create new species boundaries), you are implying that people of a different “race” are a different species. This is clearly erroneous, and we are all one human species, and one human race. Logically, the only possible form of “racism” is to favor one species over another, and no one uses the word this way. No one says, “Ah, Sheila, I’m pretty racist against trout, let’s do salmon tonight.” Such would be a logical use of the word “racism,” but again, no one uses that word this way.

To truly end “racism,” we must acknowledge that it was a mistake to ever begin using the word itself – and according to new linguistic data from Google, this is a recent mistake, as the word “racism” only came into the popular vernacular in the middle of the 20th century.

Definition, pronunciation, and historical popular usage of the term "racism"

 

If you think there’s a long, luxurious history of the word “racism,” you are clearly wrong. It is not a lovable kluge-of-a-word, filling an important grammatical gap. It is a barbed, violent word, which tears at the sinews and scabs of the heart of any fully aware person who even hears the word be used in casual, unaware seriousness.

By contrast, the word “bigotry” is much older, and much less popular in present day.

Definition, pronunciation, and historical usage of the word Bigotry

 

Clearly, the word “racism” is a much newer, scarier “newspeak” type word, certainly coming in with the high probability of having been engineered by the, quite bigoted, growingly subtle, powers that were at the time. Indeed the 1800s were even bloodier and rife with maniacal, genocidal violence than was the 20th century – take from this data what you will, but know that the word “racism” is not this old, established word that we need. We don’t need it, and it’s possible that you, yourself, dear reader, are older than the word “racism.”

Thomas Jefferson quote on bigotry

 

My overall point here is quite simple: I hope we can all start using the word bigotry to describe the same things we used to call “racist.” By using words we fully understand, we can fight the copious attempts to brainwash us towards the desensitization and acceptance of violence.

2. Proposing to Use the Words Peace / Violence, Never Security / Terrorism

This is the same argument. There is a scary, engineered, “newspeak” word combination (security and terrorism), which creates violence, and destroys logical thought (in favor of a sudden appraisal of immediate emotional state), every time the word is used. “Terrorism” is about creating the emotion of fear. And of course, security in no way implies peace; security only implies the lack of this emotion of fear.

Logically speaking, there can be no “War on Terrorism,” because this is essentially a “war” on “fear.” Wars are waged between sovereign nations, not against internal emotions. Instead of terrorism, I urge you to simply use the word “violence.”

Sadly, peace, as a word, seems to be in the process of being phased out of our collective vocabulary, in favor of “security.”


Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 3.09.19 PM The Historical use of the word "security"

With usage of the word peace on the decline, and security on the rise, let’s fight these trends that have gripped our less-aware cousins. Terrorism, by contrast, is the newest word on the block here.

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 3.07.33 PM

Definition & historical usage of the word "violence" by Google

Rather than choosing words (security and terrorism) defined by our emotions, which are easily swayed by crowds in a moment, we should focus on using words tied to objective reality, such as peace and violence. By re-wiring our thoughts and words to evaluate the world in terms of peace and violence, we are drawing the lines, and framing the debates, on much more favorable grounds to peace itself.

By rejecting the tacit assumption that a person with a different dermal melanin ratio is thereby a different race, or species, and instead, labeling this form of evangelized ignorance as bigotry, we are taking our world in a peaceful direction.

Anti-bigotry message

 

If You Think Word Length Matters

Ancestry-based bigotry is a bit more of a mouthful to say than “racism,” but then again, “bigot” has one fewer character than “racist.” However, “bigotry” does have one more character than the term “racism,” leaving us essentially at a net wash, if you use the adjective and noun form equally often. Bigotry does not imply any basis on dermal melanin ratios, and often, such bigotry is indeed based on skin color, which is why we must often use the term ancestry-based bigotry, instead of “racism,” and this is essentially a catastrophic loss of brevity for some, but indeed, it’s a small catastrophe to endure, given the violent alternatives.

Gamers against bigotry propaganda message

But regardless of word length, this is a crucial change to our vocabulary, and I sincerely thank you for listening and hearing this subtle, vital point. I am always interested to hear your feedback and thoughts, please don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments.

And just to be clear, while I do favor using the word, itself, bigotry over “racism” (a word whose legitimacy I have not acknowledged), I of course do not favor bigotry itself, as a concept. In using the word bigotry, the intent is to maximally discredit those who are bigots. So I am against bigotry, racism, hate, bias, all this – but on purely linguistic grounds, I am passionately advocating the use of the word bigotry, instead of “racism,” to describe this gleefully ignorant form of skin-color-based-hate.

 

Anti-bigotry message

 

Literally, in more thoughtfully choosing our everyday vocabulary, we can exude a greater amount of peace into this world, which so desperately needs it.

Letter to Cleveland MLB Urging a Name & Mascot Change

November 6, 2013

Join me in writing to the Cleveland MLB team to urge a name change away from their current bigotted moniker. Below is what I sent – send them your own words urging peace and healing.

Dear Cleveland MLB,

You need to change your name and mascot! Indigenous American Indians have been the subject of genocide, direct-government-sponsored murder, forced sterilizations, and much more. As a primarily white person with part Mowhawk ancestry, I urge you to initiate the process for healing, and end the gamification of our history.

We need memorials for the genocide that occured on this continent, not mockery.

There is so much goodness to showcase about the city of Cleveland, and the opportunity cost for bigotry, and linguistic violence, is as high as your city is worthy of pride.

I hope your name-change can inspire others (such as DC NFL), as well, toward peace, maturity, and healing – cost-free steps that *truly* make our world safer, more than any private police escort or defense budget.

On behalf of more than myself, thank you in advance for doing the right thing, and changing your name.

Carl Rittenhouse Larson

Dead In Utero: The Myth of Capitalism

Friends, followers, readers, I write to you from the great city of Chase Chicago, Illinois, USA, where a few years ago, the mayor literally sold the city’s rights to collect parking revenue to – you guessed it – the folks behind Chase Bank.  Maybe next year, the city of Chase Chicago will sell its own right to collect taxes through 2023 – what a great move that would be!

Just in case there was any confusion over who owns this city, check out this image I snapped last night:

Apologies for the blurry night photography – for those who don’t want to squint at their screens, the word above “CHICAGO” is “CHASE” – this is truly the city of Chase Chicago.

Ancient Words of Vegetarian Inspiration

Pythagoras (c. 582-507 BC) was a Greek philosopher, mathematician, musician, advocate of reincarnation, and mystic, known as the grandfather of vegetarianism.

The following is rumored to be a direct quote from Pythagoras, whose teachings are shrouded in mystery, as he never wrote down what he said; we know of Pythagoras only through his students.

“As long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap the joy of love.

The animals share with us the privilege of having a soul.

“Anglo moral nihilism” is a type of nihilist that just thinks morals are tough, leave it to the experts, “I’m not paid to do that.”  It’s atheistic, but indifferent, but also focused on angels and demons, God and the Devil.  But it’s also mostly just nihilist consumer who thinks the morals are in the Bible which is the word of God himself.  There, now that morals have been purchased, let’s move on to politics.

Last Chance for Solar & Other Renewable Energy?

April 15, 2013
solar-panels-q-cells

As we round out the end of the first half of Obama’s second term, we’re wondering why we’re still so far behind on renewable energy.  China, a nation with roughly equal land-size as the United States, and a similarly-sized economy, has run away from the United States on renewable energy during Obama’s watch.  No matter how you slice it, China has invested more money than the United States into renewable energy, and the results are showing. (source)

American politicians get so easily distracted by Solyndra scandals – which may as well have been a puppet shown by big oil.   In the worst possible case, Solyndra was a bureaucratic failure; not a problem with solar energy itself.

Solar really does work.  So does wind.  And geothermal, and hydro and tidal.  All of which are enough to power our planet. (source)

The Real Reason the Pope Resigned

This is a serious, offensive, humorous update on reality, in the absence of any kind of Pope in the Vatican, as Ratzinger steps down from his theatre of colonialism.

All I did was publish this crushing critique of the Catholic organization, and not even 10 months later, the Pope’s stepping down for the first time in over 600 years, not even a half dozen instances of this in all of Catholic history.  Clearly, the Pope was confronted with the truths I presented (such as how the Abrahamic 10 Commandments have failed as both positive and normative statements, and instead, we should follow nature’s 10 commandments, which include prohibitions of things like incest, cannibalism, etc.).

The fundamental philosophy of all life in all universes

Interpretable as an equation of words, I actually believe this to be the fundamental philosophy of all life in all universes:

If you’ve ever wondered about something greater, ever wondered if the world could be better, if you’ve ever been left hanging by flaky pseudo-logic, if you’ve ever disagreed but been forced to comply, then all of the following is for you:

Here is a biography on Pythagroas, for whom this perspective is named.  The universal aspects of his ideas are quite applicable in today’s world.

(Reuters) WASHINGTON DC – Congress has just announced the results of an unscheduled secret session, the unanimous passage of HR3295/SB229, commonly known as the “Babies and Kittens Act,” effective immediately, which requires all Americans to undergo dialysis twice a month,
to “clean out all terroristic tendencies and to foster greater patriotism and national security.”

In a White House press conference timed for release just after the congressional vote, president Worthingshire said, “You’re either with us, or you’re against us – and I’ll warn our enemies now, to stand against us is to stand against kittens.  And babies.  And that’s evil.”

Hello, my name is Carl Rittenhouse Larson, but that’s just a name that was given to me, I’ve been dissolving my ego lately, and it’s either gone or I can’t tell it’s there.  A person’s name is part of the ego.  I am the universe.  The universe is Carl.

Why should you listen to me?

Today is November 13, my birthday, it is the new moon, it is a supermoon (meaning that the moon is at perigee, the absolute closest it gets to Earth) and there is an eclipse of the Sun streaking across the south Pacific all day.  My birthday only.  My Sun sign is Scorpio, which is powerful, and my Moon sign is Aries, which is philosophical and of the mind.  Together, they are focused, and today, as truly as the tides swell and contort, these attributes are me, now.

How I’m staying positive in dark times

September 24, 2012

I just listened to, and highly recommend, this podcast from Red Ice Radio interviewing Douglas Dietrich about the occult in the US military (think “Men Who Stare at Goats,” only alleging to be much more effective and much more demonic).

Given that science only claims to be able to perceive – at all – about 27% of the matter or energy in our universe (the remainder being “dark matter or energy“) I’m inclined to be sympathetic toward the idea that things are not exactly as the military would have you believe based on their press conferences.  Regardless of whether the ideas in the above podcast are 100% accurate, I’m keenly aware right now of the empty, nihilistic, angry and spiteful energy of our world, and I’m basically in a scared and freaked out mood.  I need optimism to get me through my life, otherwise there’s no energy, there’s no meaning. read more

Illegalizing Reincarnation & the Bubonic Plague: Coincidence?…

September 11, 2012

Justinian I and his dominant co-ruling wife, Theodora:

Justinian and Theodora lived, ruled, and died in Constantinople.

As co-leaders, Justinian I and Theodora ruled Rome in the 6th century CE.  Most importantly, in 545 CE, the pair erased the idea of reincarnation from the Bible, branding reincarnation as a thought crime punishable by death.  The abolition of the concept of reincarnation had a devastating and immediate effect, or coincidence, depending on how you choose to view it.

The coincidences, or effects, occurred both on both the public health of Europe, and on the logic of the story of Jesus.

Elijah was an old testament figure whose prophesied return – or reincarnation – was a necessary requirement for the Jesus’ arrival on Earth.  Without the reincarnation of Elijah, there can be no Messiah.

The Bible repeatedly states that Elijah fulfilled this prophesy by reincarnating as John the Baptist, who literally baptized Jesus himself.

But without reincarnation, Elijah can’t complete the prophesy, and Jesus can’t be the son of God, and Christianity is clearly wrong, in a “new” and very profound way.

When reincarnation was outlawed, perhaps, souls immediately became blocked, vulnerable, weak, frail, cut off from their usual life consciousness, and susceptible to real new disease.

Debt and slavery: Are we still talking about a free world?

September 7, 2012

September 7, 2012 – First guest post for Pythagoreanism.com!

Written by Corey Wlodarczyk

If the buy-in requires the sacrifice of freedom and the game is mandatory, are we still talking about a free world?  Historically, the United States has considered it a constitutional right to be able to discharge debt, and has condemned debtor’s prison.  Somewhere along the road, something changed.

While defaulting on a student debt load has not yet directly lead to imprisonment, the disproportionate imprisonment of low-income persons is happening today.  Creditors for student debt essentially have the first and last cut of a graduate’s finances.  For debtors, most consumer protection safeguards are stripped from student loans.  It’s virtually impossible to discharge the debt, collections agencies need not follow traditional regulations on collecting the debt, wages may be garnished, tax refunds and social security benefits may be withheld.  These Draconian Debt laws are all reserved for a type of debt that is basically a mandatory requirement for meaningful participation in society.
