50 truths on the hidden metaphysics of America
there's much more going on than what's at the surface
This is an expanded list from the hit thread “1 retweet = 1 truth on the hidden metaphysics of America,” with 16 additional points:
1. The metaphysical foundation of America is segregation— without this it is nothing. This goes beyond Black and White race relations, but is more broadly a distinction between Light and Dark. The Old World and the New. Ordered Civilization vs. the Untamed Wild. Known vs. Unknown.
2. “America is cursed. It’s haunted!” This is true, but it also is profoundly blessed— God’s country. The mysterious darkness of America draws in and rewards those willing to explore it (settlers, cowboys) with untold riches and abundance, never seen before in history.
3. America’s cryptid phenomenon is mostly comprised of Native Gods of the New World, rejected and unincorporated into American Protestantism. South American Catholicism synthesized with Indian Paganism. America purged and pushed them into reservations where they roam, forgotten.
4. Guided by the Christian promise of Heaven, America’s ultimate ambition and fate is to produce utopia. It might even have already. But so, too, lurks the Satanic plot to manifest his own mirrored communistic dystopia. America’s future is a clash between these two visions.
5. Horror is the true American genre— fueled by the lingering paranoia that even in the most sheltered and secure suburban utopia, something from the Dark will emerge and penetrate it, leading to the collapse of their safe world.
6. The Protestant work ethic is less about hard work, but more importantly that the work is honest. You get exactly what you put in. No money lenders or taxmen trying to get in the middle.
7. American Calvinism makes sense when you realize the same country looks and feels like eternal bliss for some people and a terrifying nightmare for the others. It’s almost as if the former is inescapably predestined for Heaven— and the latter for Hell.
8. The unfathomable amount of abortions in America was Satan’s revenge against the millions God saved by miraculously solving infant mortality in the country years prior.
9. Whether it’s Christians believing in the End Times or progressive Liberals hysterical over climate change, everyone in America is living in a Doomsday Cult. The Christian prophecy of the rapture is built into the nation’s collective unconscious.
10. Silicon Valley could only exist in Christian America, where people in the image of God believe they could create something from nothing. Prophets like Terry Davis knew God’s Kingdom will be built in elevated virtual space. Zuckerberg mimics him, just as Satan mimics God.
11. The CIA offers a glimpse into the function of Guardian angels and how they operate. Silent protectors with secret knowledge preventing what they deem to be apocalyptic threats around the globe. Another example of how Satan mimics God.
12. For better or worse, the Wigger is the ultimate fate of the White Man in America— where, due to his proximity to the Darkness of the New World, finds himself inescapably influenced by it. Jung comments on this further in his essay “Your Negroid and Indian Behavior.”
13. The American Dream was never about finding transcendence through hard work, it was about kicking your feet up, sipping tea, and doing as little work as possible, free of conflict. Europeans envied this about Americans, as their history is perpetual civil war and serfdom.
14. The spirit of America is much closer to the nomads of the Eurasian steppe than European feudalism. The vastness of the Great Plains facilitates less conflict, more expansionism. For this and many other reasons, Russia and America are brother and sister nations.
15. Skinwalkers are real. They are the drug-addled, violent, and ideologically possessed among us. The ultimate zombie horror realized, populating American cities everywhere as people we used to know but don’t recognize anymore— desiring only to cannibalize the self and others now.
16. To bring up an old Conan tweet: America is rife with very ancient, un conquered spirits. They incarnate often onto our plane.
17. Many comment on how eating the exact same foods in America as they did in other countries makes them inextricably fatter and unhealthier. This is because the food here is cursed with the blood of old Gods long forgotten.
18. Witch hunts were a viable strategy to protect the nation from demonic invocation. Now occult ceremonies in the woods continue unabated, to our severe detriment.
19. Protestantism is fundamental to the American spirit. The Separation of (Catholic) Church and State is what spurs America’s explorative “fuck around and find out” pioneerism. It also secures its defining and healthy distrust of centralized government and institutions.
20. The cult leader is a definitive Protestant American tradition— where man becomes closest to embodying the image of Christ. It can be said that cults of personality move American history more than anything else.
21. America is a gambler’s country of the highest stakes. A history of Booms (1920’s) & Busts (Great Depression) mirroring Heaven & Hell in scale. The fate of the world always hinging on the risks of the bold and dumb, and whether these are met with miraculous reward.
22. American exceptionalism is borne from a Christian certainty of salvation. A belief that in the end, we will always triumph against the evils of the world. No amount of civilizational decline or geopolitical losses can trump this winning mindset. Blind faith guides its future
23. “Make America Great Again” reveals a central metaphysical contradiction where Americans eternally long to return to a blissful pastime that may’ve only vaguely existed Baudrillard called it “nostalgia for the future.” I say it’s a Christian yearn for Heaven— a return to Eden
24. American xenophobia is both its strength and its weakness. Its puritanical suspicion of the outsider and the exotic maintained its harmony. But its blind paranoia— of aliens, demons, the dark— leaves many with only a child-like understanding of the true threats of the world.
25. Qanon is American Protestantism at its most mobilized. Millions distrusting the laws and Fake News of the centralized Church/Deep State— trusting only God’s plan for victory. Similar evangelicalism made up Bolsonaro’s base in Brazil. Both await a truer Messiah to lead them.
26. Baseball and golf are the truest expressions of Christian America in sport— patient, precise, leisurely, and the most prone to Divine Intervention. They also are the most civilizing of activities, able to discipline disparate peoples toward a common, cooperative temperament.
27. Nietzsche criticized Christians for their preference of a fantastical Heaven, the “Hinterwelt” (otherworld), as a means to transcend Earth. In modern America bliss is found in the reverse: we are born in an artificial world and seek to escape it in Nature— the “Hinterlands.”
28. White identity is America’s premier Christian innovation— able to quell conflict between various European tribal races to an ahistorical level. But uniting people through shared customs/ethics could only happen by metaphysically contrasting Light from Dark. Known & Unknown.
29. American monopolistic corporatism is another Christian innovation, whereby competition (and thus conflict) is ceased through expansion, incorporation, and unique individuality. Google has no competitors because no other company can do everything that Google does. Like God.
30. It is a mistake to conceptualize America as a “blank slate” where a new society was built from scratch out of nothing— it’s not Dubai or Israel, even if they share Abrahamic metaphysics. America is instead very old, with things that existed here long before it was settled.
31. Anglo-American austerity is borne from a metaphysical sensitivity. Their “lack of seasoning” in food, for example, has less to do with bland taste and more to do with getting more from less. Extend this to sensing the supernatural— ghosts, UFO’s, cryptids, the Word of God…
32. The UFO phenomenon is more about a self-fulfilling prophecy of American egocentrism than its superstitiousness. The entertainment capital of the world draws all eyes on itself— from other countries, realms. A theater where every happening is of utmost cosmic importance.
33. The 24 hour American diner is a metaphysical triumph of Christian universalism over pagan perennialism— linear time over cyclical. A light that stays on, refusing to die every night. A place of relief and refuge that mirrors Heaven in its eternality and accessibility.
34. America can be seen as having an adversarial relationship to Nature, one of insulation and fear. This is for good reason— the land is cursed and continually threatens man with all kinds of horrors: tornados, hurricanes, sinkholes, floods, hailstorms, earthquakes, and more.
35. America has always failed with imperialism because it’s not a universalist culture— it is a universe within itself. Having every kind of terrain and climate, it is a microcosm of the entire world and more naturally ignores the goings on of the outside and pertains to its own.
36. The American worship of celebrity and comic heroes stems from the void left by the public’s separation from local, pagan spirits. This, however, allows for the possibility for the deification of new gods and myths— or old one’s in new forms.
37. American politeness and hospitality is more of an aesthetic choice than a contractural, legal, or moral one. Just as “turning the other cheek” is a strategy to avoid needless quarrels, “serving with a smile” is a means to avoid unpleasantness. Its contagious quality is the heart of Christian American civility.
38. The private and secluded nature of America is abetted by its spaciousness. “Minding one’s business” outside the eyes of the Church/State kept scandals behind closed doors and conflict from erupting in public. Here, it is not suspects who are treated with suspicion, it is the suspicious.
39. American media holds a God-given authority on consensus and narrative. It follows that the Devil would subvert this to push countless “false flags,” psyops, and other lies to justify his own rule and power, while simultaneously discrediting God’s.
40. America is not an “idea”— it is a spirit. And the confusion between the two mirrors the dichotomy between Satan and Christ: one a disembodied and abstracted interpretation of the law, and the other the living expression of it.
41. The genre of the American Western is a Christian exploration. Both cowboy and sheriff mirror Christ in their self-interpretations of morality— the central conflict being whether salvation is found in existing above the law or in wielding it.
42. The noir genre is also definitively American and speaks to a Protestant distrust in institutions and temptations. It shows the negative side of moral investigation, and reaffirms the pitfalls of naive, Edenic simplicity in the face of the complexity and Fallenness of urban life.
43. Cosmic horror is fittingly American, too, as it is a representation of the White Man within the unfamiliarity of a New World— and the strange entities that dwell within it. No matter how ordinary America hopes to make itself, uncanniness threatens its complete undoing.
44. Obelisks and skyscrapers in America represent the God-given masculine imperative in conquering not only space, but time, as the Egyptians did— undying phalli that remain erect forever despite the pulls of gravity and entropy by the Earth. In reaching toward Heaven, we will unknowingly build Towers of Babel as well.
45. The supremacy of Thanksgiving and Christmas in American holiday season are expressions of the nation’s overwhelming abundance. Whether through sharing or in gift-giving, the celebration is in having and never needing. “For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” (Matthew 25:29).
46. Unlike Europe, America has no sense of royalty to generate its cultural aristocracy from. Instead, it has the monopoly on what is “cool”: a modern paradigm that elevates the seductively new and revolutionary over what is of the blood and traditional— just as Christ ushered.
47. The decentralized nature of Protestantism makes mass civil disobedience its highest political capability. It will always struggle to solidify any centralized institutional power, and this is why it continually falls victim to the mobbish organization of mafias.
48. America is functionally the “muscle,” rather than the "brains” behind any play or scheme for power. It is a machine— an apparatus capable of any task (finance, security, media, etc.), but always taking on the character of whatever shadowy group is using it. Like a spirit animating a body.
49. Oil is the blood of the organism of America. Its highways are its veins. Any propaganda counter-signaling reliance on oil (which is infinitely abundant) or gas-powered cars is meant to stifle the lifeblood of the country. Without these things, America is spiritually dead.
50. The Americas are the promised land. The final frontier. The end of the world. It is here that all of history will reach its climax, and the battle between God and Satan will be waged. Its divine importance was substantiated by the fortuitousness of its forefathers. We are its blessed heirs.
God bless America.
