Secret Society’s and Lysenkoism
I have added a tag called “discourses” where I will park videos that examine the philosophy and vain deceit of many of these important discourses. We live in the age of deception but the veil is being slowly lifted.
Lysenkoism (26 min)
One of the most notorious names almost nobody in the West remembers is Trofim Lysenko. His horrific ideas about agriculture and biology, derived mostly from crackpot Marxist Socialist and Soviet Theory, led to the starvation and deaths of tens of millions of people in the Soviet Union and Communist China. Opposing or challenging his ideas was a one-way ticket to cancellation, reeducation, or destruction. Lysenkoism, therefore, is the enforced application of an ideological lens that distorts science, and thanks to Woke Marxism and the "Sustainability" agenda, we're facing our own looming (and unfolding) Lysenkoist catastrophe right now throughout Western nations. Host James Lindsay breaks it down for you in this episode of New Discourses Bullets. Join him to understand an important facet of what's happening around you and the history behind it. It's not the first time in human history we've made this technocratic, scientistic mistake.
The Hermetic Arcanum
This is the first of about six discourses on Hermeticiscm. Hermeticiscm comes from ancient Egypt with the melding together of the Egyptian god Thoth and the Greek god Hermes. Alchemy, magic, knowledge and mysticism are the connecting thread but the revival of Hermetecism/Gnosticism fro the middle ages onward should be considered a sort of “New Age Religion” revival.
The word hermit comes from Hermetic. This is the ascetic (rather than libertarian) form of Hermetic which probably influenced monasticism. Homeopathy comes from the secrets of “alchemy”. Isaac Newton was an alchemist (and supposedly a Unitarian Christian). Chemistry comes from alchemy but is completely utilitarian without any spiritual understanding. The alchemic tract influenced the secret society of the Rosicrucianism
The Hermetic Arcanum: The Secret Work of the Hermetic Philosophy by W. Wynn Westcott. The Hermetic Arcanum (Arcanum Hermeticum) was originally written in Latin and published in 1623 by Jean d’Espagnet, signed using the motto “Penes nos unda Tagi”. Espagnet was an Alchemist and Mystic, and the Arcanum describes the procedure of one school of Alchemists in the search for the secret of the Philosopher’s Stone. || The Collectanea Hermetica is a 10 volume set of Occult Hermetic books edited by William Wynn Westcott. The volumes are as follows: 1) Hermetic Arcanum, 2) The Divine Pymander, 3) A Short Enquiry Concerning the Hermetic Art, 4) Æsch Mezareph, 5) Somnium Scipionis, 6) Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster, 7) Euphrates, or the Waters of the East, 8) Egyptian Magic, 9) Numbers, 10) Sepher Yetzirah. || The volumes include several original translations, commentaries, and copious notes. It is a valuable resource for all students of Hermeticism, Alchemy, Kabalah and western esotericism in general.
