Famous Bootleg Time Travelers

by Wayness Tamm-Clattuc

Admiral Edward Unspiek, Excellent Baron Rom, RN -- 112213Like myself, Edward Unspiek, Excellent Baron Rom, used the illicit time-travel modality derived from the Jarnell Intersplit to reincarnate & infest different historical periods. This was a great hobby for him; as may be seen here, he lived one of these lifetimes as a famous English [‘British’ — ed] admiral from 10 July 1853 – 18 October 1924 & reformed Royal Navy gunnery just in time for the Kaiser war. Unfortunately, the bootlegged Jarnell time-travel lash-up farted out over Anchorage in August of 1950, whilst he was on his way back to ‘do’ Alexander the Great. Hence, the Baron Rom to his infinite disgust was obliged to spend his ‘most recent’ life-time in the egregious company mainly of halfwits. It is because the personality even when accidentally born into the wrong life CAN not be arbitrarily ‘extracted’ by the technicians upon discovery of the fiasco. This merely scrambles the sensorium & destroys the matrix of the personal identity; after such a botched proceedings, one then is obliged to exist as a mould or one of the fungi.

“…[T]he state, even  when made up of three hundred million zeroes, cannot possibly add up to anything but one big fat Zero….”  (Jungian analyst Dr Wayness Tamm-Clattuc)

*****

by Wayness Tamm-Clattuc

Everyone has “the terrible secret of a lifetime” concealed in their past; in this context, mine is none of your affair of course as I am not running for any elected office, and I do not aspire to tell off everyone in the whole world or else be all things to all people.  Similarly, at least to the extent that you reading this preserve the oldtime middleclass amenities and the private idea, you are under no obligation to “tell all”.

We here are analyzing a public phenomenon, it is an article of public business and hence no question of the “impermissible” discussion of private mental contents can enter in.

Politicians as public figures because of the implicit vanity naturally set themselves up for much more searching treatment.  This is the more so as, increasingly, through such studies as depth psychology and the work of the sufis, we see that the political realm is an important mechanism for diverting the weaker personalities; it is to be into a realm of self-absorption where they in effect can keep themselves out of the way of (more…)

I hope that Emmett is doing this deliberately.  Complaining about all of the name-calling in politics — in a true welter of insults all his own! Otherwise he has gone off the deep end completely, sad to say. 

The great problem of politics is that it mires us in the literalist fallacy; thus the air of constant “crisis” and irreality generally.  Everything becomes equally urgent all of the time.  Everything is a tarbaby and no one can possibly disentangle themselves.  That very well may be the historical end of democracy, of course, in which case one must (more…)

Get Ready

by Wayness Tamm-Clattuc

*****

“[G]reater numbers of the sheerly old means more and more expensive querulousness, not insight.”

*****

Something I noted in response to my posting the other day makes me think of the “Get Ready” man from James Thurber’s hometown of Columbus.  He was always calling out the end of the world, for instance from darkened theater balconies during performances of Shakespeare…and “Charlie’s Aunt”.  It made for an eerie counterpoint altogether, writes Thurber of this boyhood memory of 1910 or so.  Now, a hundred years on cgm68 wrote:

“Hi.  Didn’t somebody here write that the Hispanic drug gangs will be the new drug providers to aging boomers now that the pharmaceutical companies and doctors have priced themselves out of the market?  And that they will become respectable members of American society that way?  What about the law?  Anybody who tries this will be busted, practicing medicine without a license and so on.  Maybe it will be just sheer force of numbers that will finally swamp law enforcement so badly they’ll cave in.  It’ll be our kids though, who are ‘inheriting the wind’ and they will have a really basic need to be rid of us.  I mean as a generational thing that can’t be entirely disguised by talk of love and all that.”

cgm68 makes a very complex point full of implications:

Many if not most autarkic traditional cultures that gather all their own sustenance in overall frameworks of “bad year economics” have the idea, it is embedded in their myth and the resulting ethical teachings usually conveyed as stories, that the old will (more…)

“It’s taking in the World and not being took in BY the World!”  [al-Wuq]

As a jungian psychologist (now retired) I am pleased with this find, below.  It is a bona fide piece of what I have called “folk spirituality”.  It is a fine example of the perceptive mental contents that can arise to expression among gifted men and woman among the growing population of the underfolk.  In today’s postmodern situation in which we are clinging on to trying to live in the exhausted late-modern professional past, the numbers of the latter are burgeoning.  They are all of the people who whether for reasons of “neurosis” or an innate drive to another more-encompassing morality simply do not find a place in the fading old world order of the old Atlantic West.  Many of course suffer (more…)

“Igor Panarin in his picture looks just like the sort of affectionate bachelor uncle who of course does not himself when babysitting mistreat the favorite little niece or nephew, but then he goes out to the shop for cigars and a wandering stranger, probably a gypsy or a foreigner, comes in through the unlocked door and does the wicked deed.” — Dr Wayness Tamm-Clattuc
