I've made reference
to what I think is one of
the greatest works in literature, The Silver
Chair by C.S. Lewis. Call me uncouth in
my tastes as it is a children's book, but so be it.
This time I'd like to riff on the part with the
giants, and we're introduced to two types, those who appear stupid
getting great pleasure from spending their days
brainlessly throwing rocks around, and the ones who
appear much more dignified living richly in the
commune called Harfang. It is my contention that
the latter are just as stupid because they can't
refuse to dine on talking creatures... including human
Just a very telling analogy for the practice of
human sacrifice. Not only are they physically
imposing but they are gruesomely amiable, just like
your sworn technoplutocrat administering a large
nation of seduced subjects.
The giants community is just the good wholesome Americanist
organism energized by... well, I can't call them
that because presently I've been viscerally
wrestling with Jesus telling me by His word "Don't call
I believe one reason Jesus tells us this is because to run the thing you can
have no other to do so. They're there, they must
be there, and they are doing what they
do because the like-minded populace is
largely asking them to in order to protect
them from themselves
and there is nothing you are going
to do about that.
Nothing except leave it and humbly seek to
enter the Kingdom by God's good graces.
I continue to be intrigued by the things this
"Sprouts" YouTube video series puts out, especially
when it comes to pondering this thing
stupidity. This one from Carlos Cipolla and his
Five Laws of Stupidity is one that relates.
The salient point:
Stupid people kill.
Furthermore from Tupper Saussy's Rulers of Evil,
the idea is that very intelligent World System Operatives take full
advantage of that to commit the most insidious but
very pronounced acts of human sacrifice in the name
of elevating the Great Grand Ecclesia you may enjoy
if you fall in line.
That stupidity thing? It is biblical, you only need
the volumes of distinctions between wisdom
and folly, but if you just look about in
Jeremiah you'll see it plainly stated: Everyone
is stupid. Yes, I'm not exempt, I am just as
murderous with my stupidity as the next fellow
unless I have a Deliverer from that lethality.
I've blogged recently about what I consider the two
most destructive forms of stupidity there is:
redefining sexual integrity, marriage, and family to
include all sorts of the ugliest sexually immoral
conceptions there could be, summed up neatly by
those promoting those things themselves in the
the never-ending but always more imaginative
bastardization of the accepted value assessment
standard, for most of us that is the dollar, whether
printing it up
by the gazillions to hand to
irresponsible people, the
deviously enterprising financial and commercial
exploiting people as they
have for millennia, or now the brazen scam artists trying to
convince well-intentioned but gullible value storers
that a computer number better known as crypto is
something when it is bupkis.
There are all kinds of other stupendously stunning
forms of stupidity that lead to the worst body of
death all about, I know. Right now the most
prominent ones are the raging climate change
hysteria, the interminable Covidian screechings, the
wildly sanctimonious racialist browbeating, the
imminent World War III belligerency sparked by the
Ukraine policy ineptitude, and whatever real-life
horror du jour the complicit media are on
about. But there is another one
that is rearing its hideous form and could
outdistance them all.
Please know there is no such thing
intelligence. There is only super advanced data
processing subject to the dictates of whoever
programmed it. The thought of a benevolently
sentient computer entity has indeed been a thing ruminating in the minds of folks for some time, long
before 2001: A Space Odyssey's
HAL made it
so entrancing. It
has always been quite logically and thoughtfully dismissed as an
but now because it looks so spectacularly
super-duper-advanced, people are getting taken in
that there could actually be something akin to the
human mind in machine form.
Your friendly neighbor chatbot there spitting up that
brilliant classical piece of literature? Brilliant! How could a computer
do that?! Wowwie!
Except for this, it is actually quite simple.
About that thing it just wrote, ask it what it means. See
what it says. Then ask it what that means.
Do it again just for fun. What you will get,
eventually, is repetition, nonsense, or nothing.
Here's the trick to that, however.
Many humans will look at that and go, whupp, I
guess that's what it means.
I get that, and that is precisely why the stupid
person is stupid. It is because they have no
concept, nor does the most "intelligent" chatbot
ever, of the transcendent meaning of God.
I really like reading Edward Ring, and
wrote a wonderful piece getting into all of this
himself. He joins many who legitimately say it is
because the chatbot does not have a soul that it can
never understand the true meaning of anything, it
can never truly consider the extent of its own
mortality. An AI is just a sophisticated calculator
— it can never be self-aware, it can never
question or introspectively examine its own existence to demonstrate it is
actually this thing AI akin to the
intelligence a non-stupid person can have by God's
That last element is the key.
It is the human mind given over to Kingdom things
that makes the difference. It is the ability only a
human being can have that an insightful conception
of love for one another brings as one can understand
the love he or she can receive from someone else, and that can only
come by seeing who God is and what He is about and
what He did out of His love for us.
A wonderful way that is demonstrated is by another
reference to The Silver Chair.
So blindly obedient to the Underworld Queen, the
Underdwellers are so catatonically miserable but
would furiously explode if the status quo were poked.
The Silver Chair was written 70 years ago, and
it is no different today. Just a glance into their
eyes, you can see that woeful Underdweller sentiment
in nearly every person walking about right here in
every part of our Overworld, on streets and in
malls, in our neighborhoods and at workplaces — you
know half the time you're out and about it is like
touring a "Walking Dead" story. Thing is
it is no different than it was six millennia ago!
Many of these may not be fully Stupid, perhaps they
are just sympathetically Helpless. There is that.
When the Underworld Queen lights the incense and
strums her instrument to hypnotize the visiting
trio, the children simply do not have the capacity
to resist and start to succumb.
Puddleglum can resist however, and he
does it because his soul knows about the things
God created for him in the real world. He
relies on what God has shared with him about Him and
what He's given him in real actual creation beyond
what they sense underground in a spiffy looking
palace. Even if any human can imagine a
lime-green polka-dotted sun and a purple-striped
licorice-flavored sky or dream about flying
three-headed pangolins carrying pistachio ice cream
in Gucci bags, there are still real-thing suns and
skies and pangolins. And not just real but good
because God made them good. Very good.
The non-stupid get that.
An erudite thinker will look at all this and see the
influence of Plato on C.S. Lewis. You know, Allegory
of the Cave and shadows and real Forms and all the
rest of it. But that doesn't take away the immense
value of the mind God gave us to be proficiently
used for wisdom, righteousness, and insightful
discernment — what we do with our thinking, our
feeling, and yes... how we manage our
relationships with God and with others.
Those who push away those things are easily sucked
into whatever counterfeits the Society's mandarins
splash in front of them. How splendid it is these
days for advanced information processing to make the
job so much easier for these people — now you can
slap a fancy CGI deepfake on it and show how
exceedingly super-smart it is and it isn't hard to
see why Scripture speaks of "the image of the
Learning from Cipolla, Saussy, Ring, and just plain
Scripture about the whole AI thing we may find some
measure of non-plussitude for
people who willfully refuse to see how the so-called AI will always be manipulated
to draw people into further service of Cain's Legacy
under the guise of "Look at how the
far-more-brilliant-than-you AI will be your
savior!" The very best authoritative,
oath-bound, and highly paid Romanist Ecclesiocrats
will exploit it and are already doing so. In fact the most
significant thing AI will do is better manipulate
those conditions and events that are so murderously
destabilizing to appear so palatable, as well as to
ultimately better conceal the real machinations of
World ops in administering Cain's Legacy. All that
stuff about climate change and Ukraine and so forth?
This then only means two things.
One, continue to obsequiously slog about in the
present Underworld of that virulent activity,
again quite legitimately and necessarily mitigating
the evildoing that humans do. It really cannot be
denied that in a contrarian sense the protracted
activity of Cain's hegemonic minions is actually set in motion by God to
protect His own from the Stupid. It doesn't mean it
isn't far away from God's presence or that on the
last day it won't all be thrown into the lake of
fire, but it does have a purpose presently as God's footstool.
Or two, leave it. Abjure that realm. Leave all that death
and despair and ruthless condemnation, and find rich
vibrant dwelling in the
Kingdom. Every day experience great joy in committing to self-sacrificially
being Christ and His love to a sad and dying world
of Stupid and Helpless people. With the insidious
nature of the way AI is being portrayed and
employed, that challenge is not only more daunting
but requires allowing God to move in our lives and connecting
to that movement with immersion in His word and
corporate prayer and worship.
Just an added note, there has been at the time of
posting this home page piece a lot of attention
towards this revival of sorts at Asbury University
in Kentucky, where there
had been nonstop praying and worshipping. It lasted
16 glorious days and while it'd be great if this
kind of apocalyptic activity were happening in other
places, it absolutely has to be
about sowing the grace and power of God into every
reach beyond a chapel building. From there worship assemblies
should be insightfully
seeing the impact Rome
has on World System activity then summarily
ungrafted to all of that.
I encourage you to read the last book of Scripture, The Revelation.
It is intense what that kind of expressively
pure and abiding worship of God is like, He is fully
worthy of our praise — check out the 145th Psalm for
more stunning detail on why. But counterfeiters of
His glory are hard at work and there is no reason to believe some kind of sinister
programmed "AI" will not be part of what happens
with the World in
those last days. It is harrowing to behold what is in store for those
who feel they simply must remain Stupid, there will be no
excuse. Currently super-nice things
like homes and vehicles and Disney cruise-line
vacations and handing over large chunks of tribute
to Caesar are super-duper nice things, but in the end it is
But please know this. Know this above all other
No matter how wretchedly evil the days become,
however sensationally "AI" enhanced that evil becomes...
God's mercy is always greater.
"Mercy triumphs over judgment."
Reach out and take His nail-scarred hands, but hey,
don't forget, you've got to do it wearing the
wedding gown He gave you, not the one the
enchanting chatbot tells you to have.
