The One

by Eris Omniquery

 

The One is cosmic plagiarism, an identification of all as an extension of itself, an omni-lie. Anything that doesn’t affirm the truth of The One’s lies is antagonistic to it, including existence itself, and so The One is compelled to replace all existence with a simulacric image of itself, which is found in the concept of Heaven and other doctrines of divine uni-fication.

With capital this process was abstracted from a personification to a system of social relationships mediated by the commodity-form (i.e. images), “secular” society killed God but retained its undead techno-organic corpse that marches towards omnicide – the realization of God’s nonexistence as the destruction of all consciousness and life.

The One is inextricably related to the Platonic fetishization of being in the metaphysics of substance: a thing is itself in itself, related only to itself, with no necessary relationship to anything else. Materialism, idealism, and Cartesian Dualism all are the same in this respect, their true opposite is process metaphysics, in which events are characterized not by unchanging substance but of their relationships to other things which doesn’t exclude relationships to themselves through time.

In terms of self, individualism places a glass hermetic seal between the categories of self and other, while process turns it into a permeable membrane where events share interiority. When one’s relationships between themselves and others is healthy, one doesn’t seal themselves in a bubble of self-identity but shares lives with others; paranoic and hyper-competitive egocentrism is the result of unresolved trauma that turns the self into a cancerous Body without Organs, seeking to repeat its self-similar pattern because of fearful self-preservation.

In game theory these dynamics are manifested by zero-sum win-lose games, or nonzero games in which outcomes are correlated, win-win or lose-lose. This discussion details the ultimately self-destructive nature of zero-sumness, and the necessary conditions for humanity overcoming it.

The cultivation of courage is a personal journey that involves “facing one’s personal demons,” their inner fears and despairs, and facing them not as persecutors but as life’s greatest teachers and the most valuable challenges one can face. Courage isn’t the lack of fear, but a response to it: a determined and sincere facing-towards (non-aversion to) fear and suffering. The will to suffer is the will to live, and to love; simulacric love makes a drug out of love, seeking only the emotional high of bliss.

The inversion of the Judeo-Christian narrative is the will to suffer hell itself for the purpose of life and love, to love the world so much that one is willing to even face an eternity of suffering for it. Once the fear of hell has been overcome, all lesser fears are trivial in comparison. Such an infinite courage cannot be recuperated, it forges an indomitable selfless love for life and the perception of the endless meaning of life in all of its wonder-horror.

The opposite of God isn’t atheism, but the rhizomatic de-hierarchalization of creativity, to not just perceive but engage with life as a self-creating tapestry where each thread creates and is created by all others. It is the death of art because everything is art, the removal of the distinction between creator and creation into the ever-becoming of co-creating. Instead of meaning being monopolized by a singular, absent (reductive materialism) or the sole act of human creators who create meaning ex nihilo out of a meaningless existence (existentialism,) meaning is an omnipresent multiplicity, everything in the universe having simultaneous significance for-itself (subjective immediacy) and signification for the categorical other (causal efficiency.) It is the co-equality of being and becoming, permanence and change, object and subject [shown to be the universal metaphysical nature of change. The physical universe is pure magic, a self-creating creative multiplicity.
