    Guenon writes in The Spiritist Fallacy that reincarnation is nothing more than a rather absurd philosophical theory, or to be exact, a social philosophy. He states that the theory was invented by French socialists in the 19th century to explain social inequality. They then fused this theory into spiritism.

    The impossibility of this theory is shown by cosmology, since the design of the universe is an open spiral of indefinite possibility, one cannot return into a previous existence or have two of the same existences, which would be a closed system and therefore nul.

    Transmigration is not a simple "migration" or of a moral positioning, but rather a transformation into a higher spiritual state (through the course of one's lifetime). This can only be attained by the sacred rites.

    The original article has been further polished regarding aspects of the creation. I won't be updating the post here however.

It therefore denies the spirit and ignores the fact that matter degenerates.
    I used to be swayed by all of the modern and revolutionary ideas which see their source in the “enlightenment period”; but then I started reading Evola who rather painfully destroyed all confidence I had in progressivism. I must say that my views on evolution were the hardest to pry away. But most of it is just hype. People in favor of the idea cannot even come to an agreement upon its many aspects. But this theory has more political implications than anything else which is what science has come down to in recent times. I also suspect that that was the intention with the theosophist evolutionist view of myth which seems to have captivated a major part of the ethno-nationalist mindset. Many “heathens” seem to want to forget that there is a lesser and a greater spiritual war and not just a lesser. But as Schuon says, if metaphysics could be taught to everyone then there wouldn’t be any atheists. Even so, this article does make a good case against evolutionism on its own. Quite comical really!

    "Germanicized kabbalah" is somewhat of an oddity. The Hebrew tradition was derived from the Atlantean which was derived from the Nordic Primordial Tradition. So I fail to see how something which is essentially and originally Northern can be "Germanicized." Is that like civilizing a civil person or materializing a material?

    Excerpt: There are, as it were, a great deal of similarities here with the creation myths of Semitic origin. In the original state, the triangle of fire representing the Sovereign Good is upright; together with the downward triangle of water forms a diamond; this is the Spirit of God moving on the face of the waters. In the top half is the fire giant Surt and in the bottom half is the frost giant Ymir, who can also be seen as archangels Michael and Lucifer. In the middle is ether, the fire of heaven, which the frost giant attempts to steal; this separation is the cosmic accident, causing the war in heaven and plunging the egg into the depths of the waters.
    "The human state is an exit." -Frithjof Schuon

    "Make me immortal in that realm where they move even as they list, in the third sphere of inmost heaven where lucid worlds are full of light." -Rig Veda IX.113

    Here is a fine example of what I was saying in an earlier post. In order to make everything conform to racialism one would need to seriously distort the meanings of symbols. Obviously, Ymir who appears out of the eitr is not racial because eitr, ether, the first element, is not semen. Race implies DNA which implies semen. And ether is not space but rather the subtle elemental substance from which all other elements are derived. The universal constructive principle and the universal man only take into account certain potentialities; racial aspects are part of the individuality and are not considered in the formless, universal order. This is further evident by the simple fact that humans weren’t even created at this point (nor was the world!). The seeds of life moreover are elaborated in the subtle realm, which is the formal order (hence belonging to physics). Now, all traditions differentiate between the Gods and the Ancestors to which correspond the formless and the formal, respectively. Metaphysics is a sacred science which deals with nonhuman principles, including the potentiality of spiritual realizations; needless to say, it does not contain personal opinions which have no place in science, nor as I said before does it include forms which is the domain of physics.
