DECONSTRUCTING AHRIMANIAN HENADOLOGY: THE NOOLOGICAL WAR AGAINST DASEIN
Italian traditionalists like Giuseppe A. Spadaro have always reinforced the importance of distinguishing not only who our enemies are, but what types of enemies they are. This article will focus on the “noological” enemies of the Fourth Political Theory, that is, they are not merely ideological, military or political enemies. A noological enemy establishes his opposition existentially and not doctrinally, which means that the philosophical divergences between two noological enemies are merely superficial manifestations of a deep divergence that is inscribed in the way in which beings themselves are revealed (Seiendes) by an existential stance (Gegenwart). Liberalism is itself only a temporal manifestation (geschichtlich) among others of the Logos of the Great Mother, whose noological struggle (noomakhia) transcends time itself in the figure of the Primordial Conflict.
The advent of postmodernity meant in traditionalist terms the opening of the lower part of the primordial Egg, the liberation of the man-eating chthonic forces, the Kingdom of Quantity, the Great Parody of Tradition and the Dajjal Empire. At this stage, the Great Mother establishes its hegemony, which collapses its own war machine: liberalism. This collapse simultaneously means a strengthening of Cibele's darkest forces as well as an opportunity for traditional revolutionaries, able to use this collapse (Nigredo) to their advantage in the constitution of a “New Beginning” (Albedo).
René Guenon correctly described the advent of modern science as the triumph of profane or quantitative science over traditional or qualitative science, in the same way we can see in the past century the formation of an profane, quantitative philosophy, which expressed in a pure way the thalassocratic spirit of nous of the Great Mother civilizations. This form of philosophy in its early stages was declared anti-metaphysical, which would strategically symbolize the attempt to eliminate the mystical nostalgia (Minnesingen) that is present at the center of the philosophies governed by Apollo's logos. This form of “shamballian” philosophy, logicist and quantitative, became known as “analytical philosophy”, and represents the initial phase (pre-collapse) of what will later evolve as an explicit form of philosophical ktonism or metaphysical Satanism.
he reduction of philosophy to the logical analysis of propositions and the rejection of traditional metaphysics was a fundamental step towards the construction of a “new metaphysics”, marked by the systematic inversion of the unanimous wisdom of the great spiritual traditions. This "new metaphysics" is not yet fully formulated, but we can already recognize major trends that seem to point to the emergence of a large and unified "Metaphysics of Antichrist".
We can trace the origin of these trends already in the first phase (pre-collapse) of philosophical satanism in figures like Otto Neurath and Rudolf Carnap. These two authors represent the two wings of Dajjal:
1) The divinization of the Individual (Einzelne): Carnap states that all of our propositions must be able to be reduced to the individual's empirical experience, affirming an “epistemological solipsism” as the basis of all knowledge.
2) The divinization of the Object (Gegenständlich): Otto Neurath is opposed to Carnap when stating that our propositions are dependent on an intricate network of material subjects and objects, reducing the sense of language to "physicalism".
In both cases Dasein is abolished. The carnapian strategy destroys the sense of the unveiling of the Being (Lichtung), reducing it to individualistic atomism, while the neurathian strategy establishes the domain of the Objects, the kingdom of Gestell and a flat metaphysical posture, without verticality. Here we have individualist foundationalism and materialist coherentism as seeds of what is to come.
The evolution of liberal ideology and its victory over socialism and fascism coincides with the collapse of analytical anti-metaphysics, but it also meant the establishment of a domain of normalization of the methods and terminologies of this type of philosophy, gradually absorbing the philosophy made in European continent and spreading over various fields, such as the interpretation of classical thought. As much as continental philosophy was in a process of degeneration (since Heidegger's death), it still had a certain commitment to existential issues that gave philosophizing an irreducible artistic depth.
The victory of the “rational argument” and the death of the artistic and creative sensibility of Western philosophy meant Attis's victory over Dionysus.
In the process, many hybrid monsters have emerged, but those that deserve greater attention are those who appear to be the genuine heirs of Dajjal's two wings: Edward Butler's henadology and Reza Negarestani's Ahrimanian Neo-rationalism. These two philosophies express with great precision the general lines of what would be the Metaphysics of the Seven Towers of the Devil or the Royal Doctrine of Counter-initiation:
1) The Deflation of the One: several Kabbalists describe the process of generating Sitra Ahra as a process of "deflation", the reverse of the process of "expansion" of the sephiroth. Edward Butler's henadology is a diabolic inversion of Platonism that contradicts the identification made by Christian, Jewish and Muslim scholars between God and the One. This interpretation of Neoplatonism turns the One into a trope, an existential quality, inverting the relationship between essence and existence. This is because logicism prevents the mystical perception of the One (the One cannot be the object of existential quantification). The deflation of the One corresponds to the divinization of the “singular existence” (henad) and therefore of the “Individual”, making the singular existence primary to any supra-personal or supra-individual determination (as the essence). This conception corrodes any notion of "Volk" or "Narod", ignoring Dasein's "existential belonging". In the place of the Absolute God there is a multitude of gods, “subjects without predicates” who through their activities weave essences and reality as such, a perspective that seems to go beyond the limits of nominalism, anti-essentialism and other anti-traditional doctrines in a deeply more sinister direction.
2) Negarestani's sinister angelology: OOO (Object Oriented Philosophy) is a metaphysical theory that expresses the supremacy of objects over the subject, it is the expression of Dasein's death in a world dominated by technique. Negarestani takes this metaphysical project and mixes it with an inverted form of Zoroastrianism, where rationality becomes an instantiator of new gods. The diabolical animism of this philosophy serves as a justification not only for the distancing from Dasein, but its elimination through the image of the Post-human. The “death of God” is for him the opportunity for the birth of new gods, who will destroy all categories of wholeness, thus structuring a sinister angelology. The destruction of the categories of totality (such as People, History, Subject) means the establishment of a completely flat reality, where there is no existential center, no foundation, no primacy of a foundation. This metaphysical desert is Ahriman's reign.
These are two currents that inherit the wings of Antichrist, and form what I call Ahrimanian Henadology, the final stage of the Philosophy of the Great Mother and the Royal Doctrine of the Kingdom of Quantity. The destruction of Dasein is the central objective of these doctrines, which together form a synarchical counter-theology where the black light is the sign of the supreme realization. Similarities between these doctrines and the more counter-initiatory forms of Ismailism are no coincidence.
