    The Strange Ways of Anánke, of Fate, of Necessity

    Many of us, especially in Venezuela, ask ourselves what is happening on this planet, in the universe. Everyone has her/its/his own answers; very often, we follow the road of least resistance. In a Roman Catholic world, we place our fate, our future, in God, in his hands, and therewith the problem is partially solved for ever more.

    Why are some rich, living in Altamira, and others are paupers, "tin-collectors" in Campo de Oro? Are the poor devils cursed? Are the wealthy and mighty of Plaza Francia, of Beverly Hills, a "chosen people"? Are the poor lazy and the rich conscientious? Are Chávez, Castro or Hussein disciples of the anti-Christ that brought the seven plagues on Venezuela, Cuba and Iraq? Is God punishing us for cursing so much? Why be afraid of death if, in any case, all of us, including our children's children, all will perish some day, as a result of "low intensiy atomic warfare"? Why all the trouble, when, in the final analysis, even the very solar system will collapse?

    Thousands of years ago, Anaximander already made us aware of the strange ways of the goddess Anánke:

    "Out of Necessity (Anánke), into that from
    which things come-into-existence, they pass
    away, for they make reparation and satisfaction
    to one another for their injustice, according to
    the order of time."

    (Our Free Translation)

    Here is the German version:

    "Woraus aber die Dinge ihr Entstehen haben,
    dahin geht auch ihr Vergehen nach der
    Notwendigkeit, denn sie zahlen einander Strafe
    und Buße für ihre Ruchlosigkeit nach der
    festgesetzten Zeit."

    (Ernst Bloch, Gesamtausgabe, Band 12,
    Zwischenwelten in der Philosophiegeschichte,
    edition suhrkamp, Frankfurt am Main,
    1977, S. 23)

    Many of us speak about necessity, fate, karma, god's will; but, where did these brilliant ideas come from? Did we formulate them, think about them? Like so many blessed, reigning concepts, like unity, justice, peace or democracy, nearly all were "Made in Europe", generated mainly in the fons et origo of the accumulation of money, capital, greed, vice and power.

    For centuries, as part of the Global Mental Holocaust, from Europe, from Ancient Greece, via colonialism, Christianity and dissocialization ... including their corresponding morals, traditions and education ... strange, alienating beliefs were exported to the Americas, Africa, Asia and elsewhere. By means of a huge, brutal, mental genocide, as time passed by, inexorably they destroyed nearly all the extra-European sacred human values, leaving billions as innocent prey for the international vultures, for the national and international mass media of communication.

    Nearly all these dominating, ideological concepts received a religious aureola and across the millennia in an authoritarian, totalitarian manner, as Fear and Dread, they were psychologically implanted into the very hearts and minds of billions of pariahs, helots, "kaffirs", of staunch religious believers.

    Transhistorically, not respecting any formal-logical, spatial-temporal barriers, let us meet the Ancient Greek Goddess Fate, that eventually will become God's Will.

    In Plato's Symposium (195C, 197 B), Anánke appears as a Divinity of Fate, as a Schicksalsgöttin, as a Goddess of Fortune. Sometimes she is also called Adrásteia, (Plato, Phaedros 248 C; Plotin, Enn. III 2, 13. A.), die Unentrinnbare, the Inescapable.

    According to Homer and Hesiod, but also Archilochos, in mythological times, the Greeks feared Fate, the wrath of their gods, but, at the same time, they were also victims of "bad fortune", of their own mortal impotence; they feared Death, the Moira, the Daemon, Anánke. In philosophic times, in Ionia, in the birth place of capitalism, in Miletus, and elsewhere, Fate, Anánke, acquired a more updated connotation.

    Now, with hybris, with pride (Hochmut), the Greeks -- the rich, the ruling slave-owning aristocratic and democratic classes -- could determine their lives themselves, in spite of the pangs and fangs of Fate. Thanks to Anaximander, feminine Anánke was transformed into Masculine Necessity; the Cosmic Order, the New World Order, which was guaranteed by Zeus, directly from Olympus, now also included individual fates. The contradiction "Fateful Necessity - Human Free Will" -- later called "God's Will versus Individual arbitrium liberum" -- entered the scene of philosophy, the superstructure of germinating capitalism and imperialism.

    Hence, in Milesian times, Anánke had already acquired masculine, deterministic, necessary, Patrian features. To interpret the above preserved fragment is well-nigh impossible, because every original ancient Greek word had a specific philosophic meaning, which today we can just intelligently guess or deduce logically. From "bad" to "worse", "Anánke" not only meant fate, a divine force, necessity; it also included other meanings like "a strict, generally accepted, behaviour pattern", "according to habit", "to custom", etc. Here we see why it is our fate to preserve our rites, rituals, customs, traditions and culture.

    Furthermore, reading the text above, "according to the order of time", "nach der festgesetzten Zeit", does not simply mean "according to history", in a modern sense. This phrase has a cosmogonic, mythological tone; it denotes authority, authoritarianism, fascism, it comes from the Olympus, from where Father Chronos spoke, ordered and ordained. The main clause, the philosophic gist of this fragment, is hard to explain.

    The German philosopher, Ernst Bloch, attempted to interpret its meaning, and according to him, in the Apeiron, in the process of Being-Becoming, the things, in their individual agon (strife), file themselves away, slough themselves off, and this occurs, according to the "order of time", according to the ordinances of Chronos. However, what is decisive, is that the things do not pay reparation or make satisfaction to the Apeiron or to Chronos, but rather to one another, to themselves. This is a kind of self-sacrifice for their own coming-into-being; this sounds very Hegelian.

    "Everything that comes into existence,
    merits to pass away."

    Also in this fragment, the future patriarchal ideas of justice and injustice were generated. The term in the text, "for their injustice", acquires another connotation. "Injustice" is determined by agon, by Strife, by War, but, not by Crusades or "New Wars". Things move, strive, are in conflict, in contradiction.

    Later this virulent concept will come up again in the philosophy of Heracleitus, even in the Political Theory of Thomas Hobbes. In the Apeiron, in Becoming-Being, the things are in permanent violent strife with one another, they are at war, they battle for and against the location where they find themselves according to the order of time. In this way, they permanently generate "new wars", they launch geographic, geopolitical, geocentric imperialism. The best current example of all this is the "Ruptura", the Class Conflict in Venezuela.

    Of course, in the final battle, they get rid of their contradictions, they become pacified, peaceful with themselves, become unified, become one with themselves. They become democratic, peaceful and just, that is, they rest in peace, they perish.

    This labour pain, this agonizing naissance of the new, and this brutal rotting away of the obsolete, of which Gramsci and Chávez speak, even Shakespeare dramatized in Hamlet:

    "Seek for thy noble father in the dust:
    Thou know'st 'tis common, -- all that live must die,
    Passing through nature to eternity."
    (The Queen)

    "Ay, madam, it is common."

    However, Shakespeare reminds us of other things, not only of universal Life and Death, of Justice and Peace, of Democracy and Fascism:

    "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
    Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

    And, in more recent times, in "Space Night", the contemporary physicist Harald Lesch, also tells us:

    "Our contemporary natural science just
    scratches the surface of reality. Of what is below,
    we do not have the foggiest idea."

    Now, let us leave our limited social consciousness, our universal virtual reality, anchored in the past, and transcend towards the multi-mensional, transhistoric, galactic "present" and "future", to the deepening of the revolution, to the revolution in the revolution, to New Práxis and Theory. Let us see in a military sense what globalization means for Venezuela, for America. After all, the Bolivarian Revolution is a product of "savage neo-liberalism", of global fascism, that is, of the real, true face of corporate, transitional capitalism. Let us identify the global fascist power, some of the unscrupulous Orwellian weapons of mass destruction that await us.

    On October 9, 2003, a News Release warned us about the "Sunshine Project":

    "Lethal Virus from 1918 Genetically Reconstructed
    US Army scientists create "Spanish Flu" virus in laboratory - medical benefit questionable

    (Austin and Hamburg, 9 October 2003) – The 'Spanish Flu' influenza virus that killed 20-40 million people in 1918 is currently under reconstruction. Several genes of the extraordinarily lethal 1918 flu virus have been isolated and introduced into contemporary flu strains. These proved to be lethal for mice, while virus constructs with genes from a current flu virus types had hardly any effect. These experiments may easily be abused for military purposes, but provide little benefit from a medical or public health point of view."

    Concerning the Spanish Flu of 1918, this article informs us that it

    "was highly infectious and – in comparison to contemporary flu viruses – killed a very high percentage of those infected, including many younger people. The Spanish Flu alone caused the medium life expectancy in the US in 1918 to drop by 10 years. Hence, flu viruses are perceived today as a serious biological warfare threat. Just two weeks ago, a 15 million dollar research grant was awarded in the US to develop protective measures especially against a bioterrorist attack with flu viruses." See:

    The above is just one of the many examples of dreadful ABC arms of mass destruction, produced currently by the USA.

    The ELF-waves in action

    Soon, we need not pray aloud in Church anymore; instantaneously, via scalar waves, we could transmit our thoughts directly to God in the hereafter, beyond the Universe. Of course, vice versa, he could immediately read our thoughts, decide our fate, and perfectly control our "free will". Do we know that not only protons exist, but also gravitons? Do we know how to defend ourselves against extra low frequency (ELF) mind and thought control mechanisms? Against HAARP?

    What could happen if Big Brother would supply the four Nazi "stormtroopers of the apocalypse", the "Carlos Gang", or their future equivalents, with these E-weapons? They could influence, direct and control the very health of the president, of the sovereign, of the people, by attacking their very brains with a sabotage frequency below 100 Hz. In its over-all social damage, this could be worse than any economic sabotage. In this case, fate or faith will or cannot defend us anymore.

    Concerning the HAARP projects of the Pentagon, NASA and NATO, by means of a gigantic, energetic slingshot, the Rumsfeld war machine could heat up the ionospere, convert it into a huge electro-magnetic mirror, and would thus be able to direct the ELF-waves to any place or person, to anywhere, to where they wish, hence influencing all life systems, including human consciousness, inducing pests, changing the weather, bringing about earthquakes, moving the poles of the earth, etc. Apart from these installations of the US Army, there are many more in Berlin Tempelhof, Arecibo, Dushanbe, Gork City, Tromso, Monchegorsk, Sura and who knows where else.

    These ELF-waves penetrate everywhere, even the earth and the oceans. They affect the scientifically well-known brain wave bands:

    -Delta (1-3 Hz.)... deep sleep. coma;

    -Theta (4-7 Hz.)... Hypnosis, Trance, Dream;

    -Alpha (8-13 Hz.)... Meditation, Prayer, Relaxation;

    -Beta (14-40 Hz)... Condition of Awakedness.

    The ELF-Waves force our awareness and consciousness towards the delta and theta regions, causing tiredness, towards a lack of power, motivations and drives. It lowers or damages the immune system; one adopts a carpe diem life style. By means of these ELF-signals masses are converted into pack animals, working themselves to death, and into pathological consumer bees. They lose all revolutionary fervour and social optimism; they acquire a psychotic disassociation syndrome; as automatons, their minds and thoughts are being controlled. The result is that nobody thinks anymore, simply because there is no drive, no motivation, no power, no time to think any more. Such masses can be indoctrinated, manipulated very easily.
    In conclusion, much of what is happening now on earth has very little to do with faith, fate, with "free will" or "divine will"; it is directed directly from the Pentagon, across the international mass media, music, commercials, electronic gadgets, or even directly from satellites.

    At the moment, Latin America, Venezuela, Afghanistan and Iraq are experiment stations for all these mind and thought control devices, are guinea-pigs to test all the deadly, genocidal weapons of the USA, hence, Venezuela, beware! There are more than four "jíneteras del apocalípsis". The CIA hound-dogs, the moribund "coordinated, democratic" werewolves are everywhere, in church, in our beds, in the kindergarten, in class, in our development projects, in our very governments, in our political parties, in our very brains.

    Hence, the Bolivarian Revolution has immense tasks ahead! Hasta la Victoria Siempre!
