“You’re not going to find your answer in this journey. You’re going to find stimulation. The answer is within yourself. It cannot be anyplace else. It is about whether it is your serendipity, not choice, but whether it is your serendipity to surrender, and to surrender to your vehicle.
Whatever Human Design is in the end, it is here to transform the form principle. It is here to teach us an extraordinary essential lesson that the body is the life. If you do not allow this body to operate in the way that it was intended to operate you screw up your life; boom. It’s not about your head trip. It’s not about what your mind thinks, not about all the bullshit you go through, all the machinations, this and that, this and that. This is the madness of the world.
The beauty of the form principle is that when you relax into surrender, into the integrity of your form you will see that it delivers, it gives you your life.” -Ra Uru Hu
Explanation: Observe the Moon each night and its visible sunlit portion will gradually change. In phases progressing from New Moon to Full Moon to New Moon again, a lunar cycle or synodic month is completed in about 29.5 days. They look full, but top left to bottom right these panels do show the range of lunar phases for a complete synodic month during August 2019 from Ragusa, Sicily, Italy, planet Earth. For this lunar cycle project the panels organize images of the lunar phases in pairs. Each individual image is paired with another image separated by about 15 days, or approximately half a synodic month. As a result the opposite sunlit portions complete the lunar disk and the shadow line at the boundary of lunar night and day, the terminator, steadily marches across the Moon’s familiar nearside.

The coronavirus pandemic has altered
the world immeasurably, yet the
statistically minded among us persist
in trying to measure it. Here are some
aspects of our lives that have trended
up or down — or both — with the
backstory linked to each of them:
Our natural state is love; our very essence is love. When we are present to our experience of life, it is an experience of love. Love of our self, love of life – those are just labels to try to describe the felt-sense of awareness of being present, here, now.
The mind is very good at interpreting the body’s experience into a story, and that story repetitive in our internal dialog, can harden into a pattern – a neural pathway that can be triggered by a similar experience, a passing energy that the mind interprets once again – and into a story.
As 9-centered humans, we are capable of the felt-sense of awareness of love, while also capable of identifying with the story that our mind is telling us. The dilemma is that we have been trained to believe that we are our mind, rather than training the mind to be an observer of our experience. We believe the mind’s story that we should find love in a particular person, that love should carry us from one peak experience of excitement and happiness to the next, that there is something in particular life should give us as an experience of love – and if only we did this or that, we’d have it. Or, we believe the mind’s story that we are not worthy of love, we are broken and wounded, and will never find love if we don’t change this or that about ourselves.
Love is like an ever-shining internal light, showing us ourselves, as we experience the pure love of communion with our self. The dilemma is that we don’t see it at all. The internal dialog or mental stories are like blinds which block that internal love light. The blinds may be beautiful or ugly, but we find them captivating our attention, so that we never see the inner light itself. We don’t recognize love, because we are stuck looking at the obstacles, the blinds that we put in the way between us and our actual experience of life.
With the mechanics of Human Design, the path to self-love is a binary path. On the one side, we have to train the mind to observe the experience of the present moment, the life that the body is experiencing. In order to train the mind, we have to be able to see the conditioning blinds, the persistent illusion that the mind is focused upon. When we can see the conditioning stories, we can begin to observe what is beyond them.
On 3rd June 2020, the Court of Florence pronounced an Order establishing that there cannot be a copyright on the Human Design system.
The Order followed a lawsuit initiated by Human Design Italia, an association claiming they had the sole ownership of Human Design copyright in Italy and the Italian language as licensee of Alan Krakower (Ra Uru Hu)’s company, Jovian Archive.
HD Italia had gone against an Italian publisher, Terra Nuova, after the release, in June 2019, of Chetan Parkyn’s book Human Design – Scopri la Tua Vera Natura; claiming that nobody else except Human Design Italia had the right to publish any book on Human Design.
After a speedy trial, the Judge thought otherwise. His decision stated: “…No evidence has been provided by the claimants to prove that they had exclusive rights on the ‘Human Design System’ or its teachings: those teachings cover ideas, procedures, methodologies of representation that can be freely talked about, mentioned and illustrated even by those who are not the creators, without this infringing intellectual property rights; nor, to do so, does one need to be authorized by a school or by its founders, since in our legal system the representation of ideas is free and is not subjected to cult-like behaviors.”
The principle, stated by US Law and accepted by the Berne Convention as valid for all the countries who are part of it (and Italy is) is that copyright cannot be recognized for an “idea, procedure, process, system, method of operation, concept, principle or discovery, regardless of the form in which it is described,” and therefore “If Krakower cannot be the holder of a general intellectual property right on his ideas (rather than on his works), he cannot have sold it to third parties.”
So “The object of the transfer [from Jovian Archive to Human Design Italia, ed.] cannot be the right to exploit copyright that does not exist.”
And more: “Neither it [Jovian Archive, ed.] nor its assignees could prevent others from publishing other works on the ‘Human Design System’.”
I am particularly pleased to release this news, because I really believe that HD, like Astrology, Kabbalah, I-Ching, the Chakra System, Neutrinos and the DNA theories on which Human Design is based, belongs to humanity as such and not to just one group of individuals.
Of course, everyone is grateful to Ra who went through the experience of receiving the knowledge about the system from some mysterious source, and the moral rights of the discovery will always be his, but the law says that moral right is not transmissible, and ultimately, that the fruit of his experience belongs to all of us.
As the Delhi High Court states, in a 2016 lawsuit, copyright is “not an inevitable, divine, or natural right that confers on authors the absolute ownership of their creations. It is designed rather to stimulate activity and progress in the arts for the intellectual enrichment of the public. Copyright is intended to increase and not to impede the harvest of knowledge. It is intended to motivate the creative activity of authors and inventors in order to benefit the public.”
Moreover, this Court Order is an important precedent for any other lawsuit that might be initiated by Human Design Italia, Jovian Archive or any other organization or individual claiming intellectual property on the HD system. And it is important also for all the independent HD readers, teachers and writers – many! – that have been bullied through the years!
Instead, Human Design has benefited a lot from the work of such independent HD practitioners and has evolved immensely from its original formulation, thanks to their commitment, research and experiences.
Let this Court Order be the first step towards the free expansion and evolution of this beautiful science.
Much thanks to all the people who helped in the process of gathering information to build the case defense, namely attorney-at-law Caterina Inglese, Eleanor Haspel-Portner, Ph.D (noblesciences.com), Chaitanyo (humandesignsystem.com), Karen Curry Parker (understandinghumandesign.com), Erik Memmert (newsunware.com), and of course Chetan Parkyn (humandesignforusall.com).

An introduction to Human Design by David Wilson Barnes
“What is Human Design? First of all, don’t believe anything I’m about to tell you. Human Design is not to be believed, it’s not based on a belief system, it is to be experienced. It’s an empirical system that can be understood through experimentation and confirmation. And the reason for this is because existence is a mechanical process. And Human Design is the objective understanding of this mechanical process, it’s known as the science of differentiation, because it’s the science of understanding the extent of our individual uniqueness and how to take advantage of that uniqueness in life.
So everything you’re about to hear is simply a framework for a possibility. The possibility to discover how you are your own Authority in this life and how you don’t need anything or anyone else but yourself to guide you. And that self discovery and understanding the mechanical nature of who you are in relationship to all of existence is possible. And it’s possible through a simple practice that focuses your awareness and deepens your perception. With deepened perception comes deeper understanding. And with deeper understanding comes the greater possibility of a life that’s filled with satisfaction and success, a greater sense of inner peace and more pleasant surprises. Overall, just a much more fluent existence, with far less mental stress and greater physical health.
So what you’re looking at now is called the Bodygraph, it’s otherwise know as a Human Design Chart. So everyone on Earth has the same basic Bodygraph. It’s the shapes and the lines that connect those shapes and the numbers within those shapes, those are the same on every Chart. So what makes a Bodygraph unique are the elements that are then colored in and this is determined by the birth data that is supplied. It’s this data that defines each persons differentiation within the science of differentiation. And every completed Chart then becomes the blueprint of the mechanics of who a person is and how they function in the world, revealing each individuals place in the ongoing evolution of humanity. So unlike the transition from Neanderthal to Cro Magnon to Homo Sapiens, our most recent evolutionary leap was an internal one, there were no external changes in the physique, such a skull structure or bone density. And this is because we underwent an evolution in our capacity for awareness. It was an evolution in our field of consciousness. And the only physical manifestation of this evolution was the transition of humanity from being what we call 7 centered human being to being a 9 centered human being.
So we, you and I, are 9 centered human beings.
The Centers in the Human Design Chart are based on the Hindu Chakra system and this was discovered in India over 2500 years ago through the Hindu Vedic sciences, which described seven fields of subtle energies within the body or Chakras. And each field represented a different quality of our nature. In Human Design we don’t call them Chakras, we call them Centers. So this was the 7 centered human being. In the 7 centered human they focused on the navigation of life through mental strategies or decision making through the weighing of pros and cons and acting on the potential viability of those pros and cons. And all of our current institutions, so our churches, our schools, our governments, our morality, our ethics, these are all based on the 7 centered strategic mind. And today we’re still being educated from the 7 centered point of view. And this has effectively homogenized the entire Earth to navigate life through mental strategies of the 7 centered being and has built the world that we have now for better and for worse.
You know, there have been a lot of advancements in science, in medicine, in social organization, specially over the last 400 years. But then there’s the other side of that equation with all of its dysfunction and inconsistent and often disastrous results. So in the evolution of the 7 centered being to the 9 centered being, we went from our minds relative awareness being our Authority in decision making, to a system today in which our body’s instinctual awareness can now be relied on as the Authority for our decision making process. It all boils down to decision making.
Because the story of our life is simply a tapestry that is built on a sequence of events made from one decision to another. You know, you wake up in the morning and you decide what you want for breakfast, you decide what kind of socks you’re gonna wear and what route you might take to work that day. So from those seemingly small decisions to the larger ones of where you’re gonna live and what you’re gonna do with your life and who you’re gonna spent your life with. All of life is just decision making. But most everyone on Earth is still making decisions with the mind, you know, they’re using the old 7 centered strategic system. But decisions made with the mind, they always come with a degree of uncertainty. Because trying to predict outcomes by weighing pros and cons only brings clarity after the fact. You know, you make the decision and then; ‘Yes that worked’. ‘No that didn’t work’. ‘Yes that was a good decision’. ‘No that was a bad decision’. So it’s all a bit of a crap-shoot at the end of the day. And the bigger the decision, the bigger the uncertainty. And the greater the uncertainty, the greater the mental stress and the anxiety and the physical breakdown.
So what Human Design is offering, is an insight into the mechanics behind the art of decision making through your body’s individual, instinctual awareness. And this is all achieved through a simple practice that you experiment with over time. And it’s the only thing that one needs to utilize the full potential of what Human Design has to offer. So it doesn’t matter how much anyone knows about Human Design or how long they’ve been in this process, this practice is the only thing that matters, whether you’re a beginner or you’re 25 years into your experiment. And the practice is called; Strategy & Authority.
Strategy & Authority.
So Strategy & Authority is the only thing you need to start your journey in Human Design. And if it speaks to you, is the only thing you need to practice it for the rest of your life. It’s the key to Human Design and it unlocks the mechanics of your nature.
Everyone on Earth has a specific active Strategy that can guide them and a specific Inner Authority that they can surrender to for all decision making. And when you learn to trust your Design through experimenting with your Strategy and your Authority and surrendering to the innate wisdom of your body’s awareness, your mind is then no longer being pressured, is no longer being pressured to strategically predict the future for its survival. And this in turn expands your mind’s ability to take in its environment, this is literally an expansion of your consciousness. And in doing so, you’re increasing the potential for discovering purpose, either a new purpose or an increase sense of purpose in what your life has already become.
This is the possibility behind the Human Design System. And as I mentioned, don’t believe anything I’m telling you, Human Design is about practical knowledge, it either works, or it doesn’t and you’re the only person that can determine that, for you.” – David Wilson Barnes

13 kansrijke winnaars en mogelijke verliezers van de coronacrisis
In oorlog en crisis worden de kaarten opnieuw geschud en dat is in deze crisis niet anders. Na afloop zijn er nieuwe machthebbers, nieuwe technieken, nieuwe gewoonten. We lopen dertien kansrijke winnaars en mogelijke verliezers langs. Van de AOW-leeftijd tot de winkelstraat. Van videovergaderen tot de democratie.
‘Never waste a good crisis’ zei Winston Churchill, en dus zijn er ook altijd bedrijven en belangen die in een crisis een kans zien. Zoals op de ochtend van donderdag 26 maart 2020, toen enkele tientallen Nederlandse multinationals en exporterende branches samen met ondernemerslobby VNO-NCW de koppen bij elkaar staken met de bewindslieden Sigrid Kaag (D66, export) en Hans Vijlbrief (D66, belastingen). De inzet: als de ontwikkeling rond de Corona-pandemie er ook maar enigszins de mogelijkheid voor biedt, moet Nederland qua export als eerste uit de startblokken schieten, om de concurrentie een slag voor te zijn. Anders gezegd: het gaat niet alleen om bestaande exportmarkten. Nee, Corona is ook een kans. Corona leidt niet alleen tot verliezers. Er zijn ook winnaars.
Neutrinos are elementary particles, just like electrons that buzz about atomic nuclei or quarks that combine to make protons and neutrons. They are fundamental building blocks of matter, but they don’t remain trapped inside atoms. Also unlike their subatomic cousins, neutrinos carry no electric charge, have a tiny mass, and hardly ever interact with other particles. A typical neutrino can travel through a light- year’s worth of lead without interacting with any atoms. Therein lies the snag: neutrinos are pathologically shy. Their severe reluctance to mingle makes these particles hard to pin down, so neutrino hunting is a tricky business. But every so often, a neutrino does collide with something, such as a proton inside a water molecule, essentially by accident. It is to raise the odds of accidental collisions, and thus to increase our chances of observing neutrinos, that scientists build extremely large detectors like IceCube
You still can’t see neutrinos directly, but you can get a whiff of their presence from the clues they leave behind. On the rare occasions that neutrinos do interact with matter, they produce charged particles such as muons that physicists can detect with their instruments. But distinguishing neutrino signals from unrelated “noise” poses a challenge: cosmic rays, fast- moving particles that arrive from deep space, also produce muons, which might be confused with muons produced by neutrino interactions. Neutrino hunters place their equipment deep underground, or under a thick layer of ice, so that cosmic ray muons cannot get through. As Janet Conrad of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology explains, “If you’re trying to listen to a whisper, you don’t want a lot of noise around.” -Ray Jayawardhana, The Neutrino Hunters
“We’re talking both the fulfillment of purpose. Everything about the cross is about the potential to fill your purpose. It is very difficult to get to that place where your cross runs your life. I know. And when your cross takes over in your life boy does it take over. It’s almost as frightening as the idea of giving up the not-self, because your purpose is something that does not honor your characteristics.
So for example, let’s say that you’re an anti-social nasty savage little survivor like me. And you get on the wheel and the wheel turns you into some kind of social interactive good-for-everybody nice guy. But that’s the cross. And it doesn’t matter once you’re into the movement of your purpose what your characteristics are.
Characteristics only matter when you’re stuck with your not-self and you’re unawake. This is the whole thing about my joke about not being furniture in a movie, background. The background doesn’t mean anything. But the moment you give background purpose it jumps to the front of the lens and everybody can see it. And it doesn’t matter where you come from. The coward in the movie in the background that suddenly emerges as the hero and everybody is wondering where that come from.
Your characteristics don’t matter when you’re living out your purpose. They don’t. If I was living out my not-self my nature, my very characteristics would create problems for me in this life as they did before I knew all of this. They just would. And purpose would never allow me to transcend the problems of my characteristics, never. That’s the magic of being yourself, because the moment that you really are leaving out your nature your cross will take over, your purpose will take over and out of that will come its archetypal demand and the opportunity to be fulfilled that way, whatever that way happens to be.” Ra Uru Hu – Incarnation Crosses by Profile, I The Quarter of Initiation
The Human Design System is not a belief system
“It doesn’t require that you believe in anything, or that you believe in me. It’s not stories, it’s not a philosophy. It is a concrete map to the nature of being, a logical way in which we can see ourselves. Just the simple mechanics is enough to make a vast difference in somebody’s life.
The irony of what it is to be a human being is that we are caught at the surface of understanding and accepting our nature and the cosmos around us. We are just at the surface. It doesn’t matter how intelligent we are, and it’s not about the labels we attach to that intelligence; whether we call it “enlightened” or we call it “genius”, there is a vast underlying ignorance of how our bodies operate.”
The Human Design System is a reading of your Genetic Code
“With a Human Design education, your genetic code can be read in detail. That is the work of a professional analyst. This ability to detail our mechanics is profound as it reveals the complete nature in its subtleties. However, by simply grasping the surface mechanics—what this work aspires to communicate—you will have a grounding in this life that is immediately going to bring a difference to your process.
These essential truths are simple because they are mechanical. What is mechanical in us, the way in which our genes operate, is that the moment we try to interfere with their operation we descend into a life of confusion, chaos, and pain. In the end, they will have their way.”
All Learning—Real learning—Takes Seven Years
“We live in a seven-year cycle, and it takes approximately seven years to change all of the cells in the body. The moment you begin to come to your own nature and allow your body to live its life without resistance, you begin a deep process of deconditioning. Seven years later, you emerge, quite literally, as a new being: yourself.
It is when human beings don’t get to live out their own lives that life seems to be such a difficult experience for them. We know that there is a lot of stuff around about “being yourself.” It’s all fine and good for somebody to stand up and tell you to be yourself, but you have to know who that self is.”
In some “not so easy to follow” steps. Perhaps in the right order.
“Try to fit in the Mold of Life by becoming Superslave. Neglect to realize when enough is enough and have a complete breakdown physically, mentally, financially and generally.
Find Rock Bottom and sit there for a while.
Realize that Life is Pain – start to Heal.
Be fortunate enough to be introduced to HumanDesign by someone deep in the experiment, with a Channel of Struggle for the tenacity to seek Purpose. Curse Channel of Struggle. Love Channel of Struggle.
Have first conscious experience of a Spleen-hit while watching your first Ra-video, where he speaks of your 5/2 Profile. Melt inside.
Absorb everything you come across of Information. Know everything. Know nothing. Start Seeing.
Go away. Hide Self from other Selves in Cabin by the Sea. Be alone for a month. Find personal rhythm and true feeling in the body. Remember.
Experiment using the Body as a Barometer for the states of being in Others. Have “HolyShit!” moment of sudden understanding of implications of having a projector-aura.
Become convinced – go RAdical. Initiate Waiting-game. Nothing happens. Re-examine parameters of Waiting-game. Facepalm.
Experience the right Invitation. See yourself transform in the Situation, now that the Recognition has made the Energy avaliable. File under “HolyShit!”. Folder is getting thick.
Streamline friendships, let go of trying to fix things with your Mind and try to settle in the Backseat. Observe your Self quietly freak out, but also do nothing. Create new folder titled “Hm.”
Have noticeable physical improvements as Vehicle starts to become more aligned to its Trajectory.
Move into house where HD is a language and treated somewhat according to Type. Have happy days.
Have bad days. But notice that most of the badness is now filed under “Hm.” and not “F!!” as per earlier routine.
Everything becomes the Experiment. Thank Ra. Curse Ra. Fight it. Loose. Give up. Have confidence. Embrace doubt. Enjoy the Ride. Throw up.
Have “Hm, HolyShit!” moment of realization about the correct use and purpose of Fear and the true implications of Trust in your Splenic Authority. Laugh at the Past.
Write some jumbled brainfarts on deconditioning, in an effort to make some sense of past experiences and perhaps contribute to something or other, thru the outlet of Outer Authority (which you deep down know knows nothing).
Wait. Drink some Tea.
Have nap.”- Lars Haugeland
“…the design side. You have no conscious access to it, which means there is no way your mind can either interfere with it or truly grasp it. It has nothing to do with your mind.
And in terms of the not-self, the not-self does everything in its power to ignore it, even if that unconscious is the sole thing driving its definitions, because it has no access to it, none. When somebody enters into the experiment of Human Design, that experiment is cutting off the mind from trying to run the life and allowing the mind to become mind, to be involved in what it’s here for, which we’ll get to in a moment. But the moment you’re operating according to Strategy and Authority you’re automatically aligning your vehicle to its cognition and you’re automatically aligning your vehicle to a geometry, a trajectory, a direction, whatever language you want to use, that is absolutely correct for you…
…We have a dilemma with mind in Human Design because as not-self it really destroys our possibility to be able to perfect our process. But once you’ve entered into a process where your Strategy and Authority is making the rules for your life there are all kinds of possibilities then for the mind. It is its freedom. And this freedom is to be an outer authority, what you get from me. That is, my mind has value for you. It does not have the same value for me. That is, my mind does not tell me what to do so it is no longer my inner authority.” – Ra Uru Hu – Rave Cosmology VI – Profile, Purpose and Function
‘Awakening to your true nature is like dying; it’s a certainty, inevitable. You’re going to get there no matter what you do, so why rush? Enjoy your life, it’s free. Cosmic Consciousness and Altered States and Universal Mind are the names of rides in this vast and fascinating dualistic amusement park. So are Poverty and Disease and Despair. Enlightenment, though, is not another ride. Enlightenment means leaving the park altogether, but why leave the park? In the park you can be a saint or a yogi or a billionaire or a world leader or a warlord. Be good, be evil. Happiness, misery, bliss, agony, victory, defeat, it’s all here. What’s the big rush? When the time comes to leave the park, you’ll know and you’ll go, but there’s certainly nothing to be gained by it.’ – Jed McKenna SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT: THE DAMNEDEST THING
“Hello everyone, I’d like to make an important clarification about following transits that is long overdue: This group is for those who are sincerely living their strategy and authority and understand that following astrological transits is very different from a nine centered point of view than it has been historically for many of those interested in astrology. Astrology originated in a seven centered era, when we were strategic beings focused on survival. Within that context there was rightly a strategic intent to following transits.
For nine centered humanity today, it’s clear to me that transits are not opportunities to do something. Even if you recognize a transit like mercury retrograde as an opportunity to re-evaluate things, it’s not an opportunity for your mind. Your mind will want to play out scenarios with that transit, all of which are not self strategies. You don’t know what things you’ll be re-evaluating, and how that will play out. You’re not going to get what your mind wants. It’s just something to be aware of as it’s happening to you and to others around you. It’s not wise to pencil into your calendar “time to re-evaluate my contracts” just because mercury is in retrograde. You don’t know that that is where your energy wants to go. I bet you will re-evaluate something, but you don’t know what, when, and how. You’re not in control of that. That’s mental intervention that inhibits the natural flow of your life.
We are conditioned by neutrinos, not in control of them. They will color your life according to roughly predictable themes, in the context of your design…pushing you in directions…but there is no way to utilize them for our own ends…attempting to do so is the definition of acting from the not self. There is merely identification with that transit energy or not, and even in that we have no choice. We can only see what we can see at any given time. We don’t get to choose to have the awareness to not succumb to transit conditioning. Just because you know a transit is happening doesn’t mean you’re beyond being pushed by it. But maybe you’ll notice the impersonality of it later, and that will be of value to you. One way or another, we are always going to be conditioned. If you have the energy to be aware of how and to what extent, lucky you.
Do you want to be a part of a group that is created for witnessing the transits as they activate lines, gates, and channels in our lives, recognizing these energies that are conditioning us, so as not to identify with them, not to make decisions because of them, and not to take their themes personally? That’s what this group is. And fortunately I have a volunteer to continue to post the sun gate and line transits daily. Understanding this astro context can help put the mind at ease, allowing us to truly see more as a witness, without grasping and identifying, and to ultimately help us clarify the difference between our nature that we can rely on and the transiting energies that are just weather.
Please feel free to comment if you need clarification on this important difference. The old orientation insidiously reinforces the not self mental control game, the new orientation liberates the passenger to see more clearly and relax into the form.”- James Alexander in the Human Design Line, Gate, and Channel Study
‘Inclusiviteit is het (vrouwelijke) toverwoord – een gevaarlijke en infantiele fantasmagorie’
In zijn ‘De Open Samenleving en haar Vijanden’ opent de Oostenrijks-Britse filosoof Karl Popper de aanval op Plato, Hegel en Marx, de filosofische wegbereiders van centraal geleide politieke systemen en historische wetmatigheden. Het wereldberoemde werk, dat in 1945 verscheen, is waarschijnlijk een van de meest hartstochtelijke pleidooien voor democratie en individuele vrijheid en tegen totalitarisme die ooit zijn gehouden.
‘Het streven naar vrouwenbevrijding is in de afgelopen decennia gemuteerd tot een ideologie met sterke totalitaire trekken’
Aan actualiteit hebben Poppers gedachten niet ingeboet. De totalitaire bedreigingen van de vrijheid openbaren zich graag onder de vlag van de een of andere vrijheidsstrijd. Dit geldt niet alleen voor (neo)marxisten, (neo)nazi’s of radicale islamieten. Men neme een willekeurig, begin jaren tachtig verschenen exemplaar van het feministische damesblad Opzij. Vervolgens vervangt men uit het een of andere artikel het woord ‘man’ door ‘slaaf’, ‘zigeuner’ of ‘jood’. Het resultaat is verrassend: met een beetje geluk (of pech) worden we geconfronteerd met een epistel dat niet zou misstaan in de boekenkast van welke racistische scherpslijper dan ook.
Nu zou men natuurlijk kunnen tegenwerpen dat iedere revolutie haar radicale, Jakobijnse fase kent die vanzelf wel weer overgaat. Men zou ook zijn schouders kunnen ophalen over zoveel onzin, ware het niet dat deze dames en hun (geestelijke) nazaten het politieke discours al sinds decennia in hoge mate bepalen.
Deze (vrouwelijke) achtenzestigers en hun dochters hebben niet alleen de emancipatie doorgezet, een vrijheidsstrijd die het inderdaad verdiende ondersteund te worden. (Pas in 1957 werden getrouwde vrouwen in Nederland juridisch handelingsbekwaam. Voor die tijd dienden zij zich te vervoegen bij de man van dienst). Het streven naar vrouwenbevrijding is in de afgelopen vier, vijf decennia gemuteerd tot een ideologie met sterke totalitaire trekken. In zekere zin is zij in haar Jakobijnse fase blijven steken.
‘De overweldigende meerderheid van degenen die in 2015 de binnenstromende illegalen bejubelden waren vrouwen’
Binnen de Atlantische cultuur heeft het feminisme belangrijke thema’s bezet zoals ‘de natuur’, ‘vrede’, ‘bewapening’, ‘mannen’, ‘mensenrechten’. Met een mengeling van diepe verontwaardiging en geraffineerde berekening wordt de wereld, dan wel het blanke mannelijke deel daarvan, op agressieve wijze met verwijten en directieven bestookt. Die ‘politiek correcte’ verontwaardiging is niet alleen uiterst selectief, zij bedreigt ook de cultuur van waaruit zij ageert.
Een voorbeeld. De overweldigende meerderheid van degenen die in 2015 de binnenstromende illegalen bejubelden waren vrouwen. Een ongeveer even overweldigende meerderheid van die migranten waren mannen en jongens in de zeer vruchtbare leeftijd tussen 15 en 35 jaar. Hier is niet de vraag relevant hoe groot de vrouwelijke animo geweest zou zijn wanneer het omgekeerde het geval was geweest, dus wanneer een vloedgolf van mooie, jonge Sheherazades het continent had overspoeld. (De vraag stellen is hem beantwoorden, lijkt mij). Relevant is dat agressie van de eigen mannen en jongens nadrukkelijk werd en wordt getaboeïseerd, terwijl die van archaïsche culturen op de koop wordt toegenomen, of erger. Het is, al dan niet bewust, een frontale aanval op zowel de culturele en nationale identiteit als op de open samenleving, begrippen die nauw met elkaar verbonden zijn, of dat in ieder geval waren.
Wat de nationale identiteit betreft is het misschien nuttig om op deze plek nogmaals de woorden van de grote Nederlandse cultuurhistoricus Johan Huizinga te memoreren. Aan de vooravond van de Tweede Wereldoorlog maakte hij een onderscheid tussen ‘patriottisme’ en ‘nationalisme’. Patriottisme, aldus Huizinga, is ‘de wil tot handhaving en verweer van wat eigen en dierbaar is…’ Nationalisme daarentegen omschrijft hij als ‘de machtige drift tot heerschappij, de zucht om het eigen volk of den eigen staat te laten gelden voor, boven en ten koste van andere.’
Weerbaarheid en verdediging van de eigen cultuur, van de eigen grenzen, zijn intussen belaste (mannelijke) begrippen. Inclusiviteit is het (vrouwelijke) toverwoord – een gevaarlijke en infantiele fantasmagorie.
Zowel het marxisme-leninisme als het nationaalsocialisme ontwierpen synthetische mensbeelden die ver van de werkelijkheid, in ideologische petrischaaltjes, werden ontwikkeld. In de alledaagse praktijk waren zij niet levensvatbaar. Er bestond geen ‘socialistische persoonlijkheid’, geen ‘Übermensch.’ Alle pogingen om deze Frankenstein-constructies tot leven te wekken zijn jammerlijk mislukt en voorgoed gediscrediteerd.
Ook de (‘vrouwelijke’) poging een ‘witte hermafrodiet’ te ontwerpen die zijn archaïsche antithese zal omarmen is een perversie die tot mislukken is gedoemd. Al doet een blik op het culturele, politieke en academische establishment anders vermoeden: vrijheid in een open samenleving bestaat uitsluitend bij de gratie van begrenzing en de wil deze grenzen te verdedigen, zowel territoriaal als individueel. Wie meent dat, als je het maar hard genoeg hoopt en roept, alle mensen broeders en zusters zullen worden zal zijn of haar luchtrijk van de dromen waarschijnlijk niet op eigen kracht kunnen verlaten.”Door: Jan Herman Brinks , 15:26, 23 september 2019
We are all here to communicate our outer authority. It’s what we’re about. And we know it is not easy to find those that we can communicate with and we are understood. Human beings talking to each other, how little they hear each other. When your mind is in control of your life and you’re having a heated discussion with somebody, your mind is so busy trying to figure out how to win, control, defeat the other, defend oneself, and prepare the next sentence. And while you’re preparing the next sentence you don’t hear what’s being said because you don’t care, because you’re just dealing with homogenized views and homogenized views can always be argued about, because there is no universal truth. There isn’t. It’s a myth.
There are universal homogenized accept abilities. Truth is unique; it’s just unique. And it’s not about saying when someone receives outer authority and that person tells them something in that outer authority that does not have to become their truth. It is simply something that has been communicated. We don’t understand that kind of communication. We don’t.
This is the way in which the program tries to compensate, there are all these hidden fractal lines. There are these natural mathematical partners. It doesn’t mean they’re there to be your lovers, your friends, but they are certainly going to be those forces that when you communicate they hear it. And if it resonates within them they pass it along—“you’ll never guess what I heard yesterday.” This is the movement.
It’s why I’m always so concerned about simplicity. It’s not because I think that those beings that are interested in Human Design don’t have the grasp. The greatest dilemma of a knowledge like this is how misleading intelligence is. It’s misleading. When you understand the nature of fractal you realize that simple is the only way that you get beyond the third or fourth or fifth or sixth generation of communication. It’s the only way that anything moves. I’m a 5/1; I’m here to call universally. You can’t do that when the language is so complex that nobody can truly grasp it. It has to be simple.
And if something can be distilled down to the simple and stand up to testing, then it is something that will move down the fractal line. And it says something about all communication, is that one of the things that we avoid the most in our dealing with the other is the simple. We don’t say what we really think; we don’t say what we really feel. We couch things in coded expressions, innuendos, facial movement. We don’t really share what’s really there because we don’t know how, and I’m speaking of humanity. -Ra Uru Hu, Facets & Fractals, Advanced Base Theory
“Het is een dag van niks. De zomer duurt al eeuwen en is nog lang niet voorbij. Sjef en ik liggen op onze rug op het betegelde voetbalveldje achter ons huis. Met „ons huis” bedoel ik zijn studentenkamertje, waar ik in het begin van de vakantie met drie schone onderbroeken en een jurk naartoe ging en sindsdien niet meer vandaan ben gekomen.
„Wat zullen we doen?” vraag ik.
„Hoezo?” Hij draait zich naar me toe.
Ik heb zin om zijn neus in mijn mond te stoppen, sproeten en al.
„We doen toch al wat,” zegt hij.
„Ik verveel me.”
Hij haalt zijn schouders op.
„Leer me eens iets,” zeg ik.
Sjef kijkt naar de lucht. Ik kijk met hem mee. Vroeger wilde ik dit heel graag, zo naast iemand liggen. Nu heb ik Sjef en ik ben aan hem gewend geraakt. Ik merk amper nog of hij er is of niet.
Hij pulkt iets tussen zijn tanden vandaan. ‘Ik kan je wel een sjekkie leren rollen, maar het ligt binnen.’
„Ga halen dan.”
Hij zucht, staat op en sloft weg. Klopt het stof van zijn lichtblauwe korte broek. Mijn moeder zegt altijd: als je weet dat je niet gaat strijken, moet je ook geen linnen kopen.
Sjef draait zijn voordeur open en ik kijk hoe een vliegtuig een streep trekt in de felle blauwe lucht. Daar zitten allemaal mensen in. Ze gaan naar huis of naar de zon. Voelen ze zich schuldig, al die kerosine? Ik ben een held dat ik thuisblijf. Ze zullen later zeggen: mensen zoals zij hebben de wereld gered.
Daar is Sjef. Ik ga rechtop zitten.
