Esq. Here is the problem for you to solve: Chris is walking down a path and comes to a fork in the path. In this essay I am giving a short test for formal operations so that the reader can see. making the path impassible. naïve thinking of concrete operations. Path A is paved with asphalt Sign B: Path B is 1 mile long Path B is 2 feet wide . one path marked Path A. You see.. and the second marked Path B. if he or she can think hypo-deductively. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. or. Fejfar. Fejfar The developmental psychologist Piaget.Chapter 1 A Short Test for Formal Operations Thinking By Anthony J.. Concrete people cannot compare and contrast possible alternative future courses of action and choose a future which is logically superior. people in concrete operations cannot plan for the future. there is a more abstract. hypo-deductive thought. J. describing that path: Sign A: Path A is 1 mile long Path A is 3 feet wide Path A has a snack bar by the path Path A at the half way point has a bridge which is down for construction.D. difficult type of thinking known as formal operations. There is a sign at the head of each path. asserted in his work that beyond the simple.

(Scroll down for the correct answer below after taking the test). BEGIN the TEST. . and choose the path which logically is better. given the goal of reaching your destination. You are to compare and contrast the good and bad points about both paths A and B. you the reader are required to choose the best path with the goal in mind of reaching a destination 3 miles down the path after the point where paths A and B have merged and have become one path again.Path B has no snack bar Path B has no bridge and is open all the way Path B is a dirt path Now.

.ANSWER: Path B While Path A has some nice features. with the bridge out it cannot be used to get to the destination.

J. to think that if you can change the subatomic makeup of an atom. however.. when you think about it.. or even biological levels. argue that evolution involves planned change from outside of space-time. in his work on evolution. My response is that evolution takes place using Quantum Physics and Quantum Change. Evolution. Fejfar For many persons. not with gradual incremental changes. logically.D. Fejfar. There is no reason. And.. the idea that people were created by God. Bergson. in Genesis in the Bible. Genesis. B. that you cannot change the atom itself. The Quantum Field exists on a subatomic level. could be seen as evidence that evolution takes place very rapidly.

Thus. but really out of the Quantum Field. out of nothingness. as if. there really is no contradiction between the idea of theistic evolution. even to the extent of producing a whole new species of animal. and certainly metaphysics. or creation of human beings by God in the Bible. ex nihilo. could produce large and sudden evolutionary changes. it is possible that evolutionary meaning on the Quantum level.

. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. there are three different standards of proof which must be proved. in part. There is no absolute certainty in this world or universe. They are as follows: .. B. because the type of intent required for a particular type of activity parallels the burden of which is required to prove a relevant fact at trial. only probable knowledge. Fejfar I once heard a psychologist argue that in order to practice law. Esq. Thus. J. in relation to law. or contract. based on Quantum Physics. I would like to argue that these persons are mistaken.D. tells us that we live in a world and universe of moderate relativism. I have argued previously that contemporary science.” I have also heard psychiatric social workers argue that one who is not “Judicially Competent to Stand Trial” cannot own property.A.. using a legal proceeding.Chapter 3 Burden of Proof and Intent: Mental Incompetency and a finding Of Judicially Incompetent to Stand Trial: An Analysis By Anthony J. one had to be “Judicially Competent to Stand Trial. or reality. Fejfar. and what is required to prove a fact.

Thus.licensure.9999999% standard of proof/reality Now. constitutional rights at law without equity Preponderance of the Evidence 55% standard of proof/reality 2. my point is that in each of the three different proceedings discussed above.Prosecution of Criminal Defendant Evidence Beyond a Reasonable Doubt 99. and thus. Civil Regulatory Case. the type of intent required to intend reality for that type of proceeding is different. Criminal Case. contracts. Now. -involuntary psychiatric commitments. environmental or corporate but it should generally say that if the person is 55% accurate in the person’s reality perceptions. the standard for “reality” is different. some type of test is required. guardianships -Clear and Convincing Evidence 85% standard of proof/reality 3. Civil Case. then that person is judicially competent to stand trial to own property and to contract.1. If a person is alleged to be . tort. I suppose. the following is true: In order to be judicially incompetent to contract or own property one must not be able to know reality at a percentage of 55% or better.

it is possible that a person does not reach the 85% test for involuntary commitment (knows reality below 85% perceptually) and also clearly does not meet the 99. practice law. logically. then it must be proved that the person’s intent/reality perception is less accurate than 85% or better. if a person is alleged to be delusional. A Criminal Conviction requires that the Defendant must have really known what he or she was doing at a percentage of 99. or hallucinatory. or to be judicially incompetent to practice law (hold a license). or have dementia. The idea that a criminal defendant has been found judicially incompetent to stand trial for an inability to form specific intent cannot be used as a basis for asserting that such a person cannot own property. or to be judicially incompetent on the basis of being a danger to oneself or a third person (involuntary commitment). criminal intent. in order to be judicially incompetent to take care of your own personal or financial affairs (guardianship). one must be found to be judicially incompetent to stand trial by reason of not being able to know reality at a level of 99. However. and such a person could practice law.99999% test for criminal liability. but not have the judicial intent necessary to practice law or take care of one’s own affairs without supervision. that is. Now. it is equally true that a person could know reality at 87% probability but not 99. it would also have to proven that the proposed guardian was more competent in this respect than the proposed ward. Obviously.999999%.then it must be proved that the person’s intent is less accurate than 55% or better. such a person could also own property and have the power to contract. or criminal intent. or have dementia. yet still be acquitted of criminal charges for lack of specific or criminal intent. could not be subject to a guardianship. could not be involuntarily committed. in order to be judicially incompetent to stand trial to form mens rea.9999999% . Of course. such that the person cannot form regulatory intent. or hallucinatory. Thus. such that the person cannot form contractual intent or ownership intent. contract.99999% probability. Finally. have and exercise constitutional rights. .delusional. for example. one must not be able to know reality at a percentage of 85% or better. or there is no basis for specific intent. one could have the judicial intent necessary to own property or contract. Similarly. and thus could be involuntary committed to a psychiatric ward for some period of time for being a danger to oneself or another. Again.

B. J. Fejfar Developmental Psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg argued that level 3 moral thinking is conventional morality. independent of any knower. So. when a person says that he or she trys to be “good. a form of neo-thomism. it would appear that some persons who appear to be applying conventional moral standards. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. The argument is that The Good actually exists. are applying Classical Morality. Conventional Morality means that a person follows a specific authority for moral directions or guidance.

Maximization of Value. As I have asserted previously. concretely.Chapter 5 Critical Thomism and Kant’s Categorical Imperative By Anthony J. Fejfar. In this sense it is existential. the Critical Thomist does not. this finds expression in each individual selecting and then acting upon an individual scale of values.

Not only do I act to defend my own Rational Self Interest. my chosing to actualize. not only do I argue for my Autonomy as paramount. My Self Actualization. Not only do I support my own Self Acutalization. but for every other Liberal Critical Thomist. Critical Thomist must support the Liberal scale of values not only for myself. . Finally. Thus. as a Liberal. as Critical Thomist. I also argue for the Autonomy of every other Liberal Critical Thomist. not only do I try to help others in my Life. that is.

The Liberal Compact provides that every Liberal must support every other Liberal in protecting that Liber al’s individual rights. it means that I. I also act to encourage other Liberal Critical Thomists to help others.

Jesus the Son. This force is even more powerful than conventional morality. The Critical Thomist Liberal Compact supports the Individual Good. I suspect that even God the Father.This is the Liberal Critical Thomist Compact. and the Holy Spirit are each Liberal Critical Thomists. and it works. and collectively. . The Common Good is merely the aggregate of all of us pursuing the Individual Good together. the Common Good. It is perhaps the most powerful force in reality.

Fejfar Dan Spencer was a newspaper reporter for the Pittsburgh Enquirer Weekly Newspaper. Dan had a weekly column. so their careers would be destroyed.

Dan had a friend who was a Russian reporter who found KGB files indicating an espionage program designed to make people appear to be mentally ill.

The next week.

Dan took his friend out to eat.” Dan asked if they were worried about getting caught and going to jail. PCP. no. arsenic. and having their blood drawn and analyzed. Almost all of the patients had the same drugs and substances in their blood as Dan’s friend. So. Dan spent six months interviewing other mental health patients. Because. Dan’s friend was shocked at what the tests showed and said that he had never taken any sort of drugs or substances for any reason. Dan started by going out to the State Mental Hospital. often in the homes of the persons. Dan then bribed a psychiatric aide for information and found that psychiatry was deeply involved with “controlling” political “dissidents. and camphor in his blood. and then they stopped at a private clinic and had some of his friend’s blood drawn for lab work. before they were hospitalized. Dan visited his friend on the Ward and asked him if he knew anything about any of these drugs or substances.

not just blacks. long before they actually physically incarnated on Earth.. contrary to postmodern myth. or perhaps even God himself.D.Chapter 8 Druid Catholic Mass By Anthony J. Esq. not Roman Catholic. and Aristotle. Why the Jewish worship of God was tolerated is unclear. . I think that the Druid tradition was informed by the Holy Spirit long before the historical coming of Jesus of Nazareth on Earth. distinguishing it from Anglican “Catholicism.A. In his book.” were teaching in Europe as far back as Cro Magnon times. I personally like the idea of a Druid Catholic Church. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. There was slavery in Rome. but of course there were some big negatives too. and seems to be the exception that makes the rule. but whites too. In fact. Plato. Seth states that spiritual “Speakers” who channeled information from the “other side.. B. there was no religious freedom in Rome. And. but I never liked the term much. we just called ourselves Catholic. Growing up.” I think that there are other metaphors we could use to denominate the Catholic Church. J. I think that these Speakers were the early Druids and that they presaged the coming of Christ. Fejfar I was raised a Roman Catholic. Fejfar. by Jane Robert. Caesar was worshipped as a god.. I have it on good authority that the idea of Roman Catholicism was an invention of a religious affairs reporter for Newsweek Magazine. There could be no false gods or a God worshipped beside Caesar. I guess Rome did some positive things for Western Civilization. Seth Speaks.

the Mass is essentially a nature sacrifice. metaphysically. maybe good start would be the development of an Episcopalian Catholic Church. We do not sacrifice the material body and blood of Jesus Christ in the Mass. not the sacrifice of a male on an altar. to me. like some sort of cannibals. Now. A Druid Mass. This is the real doctrine and practice of tran-substanc[e]-iation (transubstanciation) as taught by the Church Councils at Nicea and at Trent. is a Druid Catholic Mass. because.The real Catholic Mass. Perhaps the notion of a Druid Catholic Church is a little too much for some. instead we have a transformative nature sacrifice of the bread and wine (or grape juice) into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ in Substance. it makes perfect sense that women can be Catholic Priests and offer the sacrifice of the Mass. .

the Charter clearly states that all laws of Pennsylvania must be “consonant to reason. Esq. I argue that Due Process of Law was present prior to the 14th Amendment. Magna Charta requires that no person can be deprived of life. where the rules of evidence apply. 1681.Chapter 9 Due Process. in accordance with the Natural Law of Liberty. where the litigant can cross examine witnesses. This means that Pennsylvania is required to follow the requirements of Magna Charta. and that such Due Process of Law on the State Level. whether civil or criminal. this means that the litigant. B. was applicable in States such as Pennsylvania.. and the Charter for the Province of Pennsylvania By Anthony J. With respect to substantive due process. In the Charter for the Province of Pennsylvania. or property. Fejfar. as of that time. Fejfar One might wonder what Due Process of Law.. prior to the enactment of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.A. Magna Charta. without a jury trial in accordance with the law of the land. this means that any governmental law or action must be “reasonably related to a legitimate government interest.” This means both substantive and procedural due process are required in the enforcement of any civil or criminal law in Pennsylvania. liberty. the Charter of the Province of Pennsylvania states that so far as is conveniently possible. and .

Human being need vitimin C in order to survive. Let us consider this situation. J. and only for a short period of time. Both these options seem unlikely based upon the current idea that humans evolved from apes on the African plains. human being were created or evolved in a Utopian society where fruit was available the whole year.

If they don’t get it they get scurvy. then humanity must have evolved where there was fresh fruit available the year round. an often fatal disease. Fejfar Charles Darwin.A. Maybe this makes some sense. and only where fruit trees are growing. Esq. B. or Creative Evolution... scurvy causes a failure in the development of bones and teeth. Perhaps. In small children. it would seem that if evolution worked the way Darwin suggested.Chapter 10 Evolution and Utopia By Anthony J.

Eden, where people had fresh fruit the year round, or so the common myth has it, is supported by the idea of evolution itself.

Chapter 11 Gadamer’s Hermeneutics and Metaphysics By Anthony J. Fejfar, J.D., Esq., Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar In the Gadamer-Habermas debate, Habermas argues that there is no way to avoid the hermenutic circle, and thus that Gadamer’s Hermeneutic position is logically circular and invalid. I, on the other hand, argue that Gadamer’s Hermeneutics are valid because they are based upon metaphysics. Gadamer asserts that Hermeneutics, that is, philosophy of meaning, is based upon the idea that there are certain “forestructures of knowing” which guide hermeneutic interpretation. Obviously, if these forestructures are just ideas, then it would appear that hermeneutics are circular in nature and thus invalid. I would argue that just as Plato argued for the idea of the World of the Forms, so too, hermeneutics is guided by what I would call Hermeneutic Forms. I argue that Gadamer’s position is Platonist and is thus grounded in Metaphysics. Since the forestructures of knowing are in fact transcendent Immutable Platonic Forms, in the World of the Forms, better interpretations are possible. Additionally, using Lonerganian epistemology it is possible to argue that intuitive judgment and reflection are cognitive functions which transcend mere analytic understanding or hermeneutic interpretation. The argument is that intuition enables us to transcend hermeneutic understanding and helps to to find a better interpretation.

Chapter 12 God and Communism By Anthony J. Fejfar, B.A., J.D., Esq., Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar In the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx, its author, takes the position that God is an infantile projection and that religion is the Opiate of the People. I argue that Marx point has some validity, but overall is wrong In his book, “The Two Sources of Morality and Religion,” philosopher Henri Bergson discusses two types of religion and two types of God. In the first type of religion, let us call this, Conventional Religion, religion is based upon inauthentic authority. People are taught to “pray, pay, and obey,” and nothing more. Genuine spirituality is suspect at best, considered evil at worst. Genuine spirituality or religious experience is considered evil by conventional people because the spiritual person has a direct pipeline to God, bypassing the religious authority system. I argue that spiritual people are Intuitive Mystics who value autonomy, rational self interest, self actualization, and helping others. Conventional people, on the other hand, value obedience, fitting in, conformity, appearances, the status quo, authoritarianism, and meaningless religious ritual. The “God” of convention fits with the religion of convention. The Conventional God is authoritarian, demand strict obedience, values appearances, values conformity, hates spiritual experience. This conventional God is the false God criticized by Karl Marx in the Communist manifesto. The religion criticized by Marx as the opiate of the people is precisely conventional religion

it is possible to believe in the God of Being and be a Communist. The God of Being encourages us to wear khaki shorts to church in the summer. The God of Being inspires us to pursue Justice and Social Justice. self actualization needs. authoritarianism. or Spiritual. . The God of Being despises. and empty religious rituals with no spirituality involved. The God of Being encourages an intellectual life based upon Reason. Communism mean Equity.” Keeping in mind of course that those with abilities have needs too. only the God of Convention.The second type of religion that Bergson speaks of is Intuitive. There is no contradiction. Intuitive religion is where the participant actually actually comes into real contact with God. This is the God of Being. conformity. not conformity and not the status quo. not the God of authority. The God of Being encourages artistic creativity. then. Understood in this sense. For the Spiritual Theist. Karl Marx did not criticize the God of Being. not a three piece suit or a fancy dress. or Intellectual religion. “To each according to his need. Karl Marx did not criticize the God of Being in the Communist Manifesto. such as. from each according to his ability. Intuitive religion is Spirituality. appearances.

in the World of The Forms. Law is ordered toward Justice. J. flawed. argued that Law is a sham. and Equity is ordered toward Social Justice. the Forms exist in the Mind of God. in the Communist Manifesto. The Aristotelian position is that the Rule of Law. B. which exists independent of any knower in Substantial Form. not cookie cutters. however. from time to time. The Forms are guides.

while at first it would seem that only men would be satanically enslaved and sacrificed. First. J. While Jesus may have been married. at its best promotes reason based decision making not authoritarianism. Additionally. On the contrary. our culture promotes and enshrines adolescent Son-Reason. While some individual Fathers might be authoritarian. Esq. As Jesus said in the .. Father authoritarianism and adolescent Son- Reason. Christianity itself is based upon the norm of adolescent Son-Reason.D. B. Ken Wilber. since the time of its founder. Patriarchy. Jesus Christ is the Logos. The Paulist Order. that is Reason. The Jesus of the Gospels was an adolescent not an authoritarian Father. Patriarchy has two forms. let us consider the historical record of matriarchy. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. in his anthropological work argues that matriarchal. Good judges and good presidents and good corporate executives are good because they are reasonable not because they are authoritarian. not an authoritarian Father.. in the end I suspect that lesbian women who are artistically inclined and who are not “great mothers” would also be enslaved and murdered in ritual sacrifices. there is no mention of this in the Gospels.. for example. I argue that Patriarchy is good and matriarchy is evil. on the other hand has produced political liberalism and the Rule of Law. Roman Catholic religious life. in fact. protecting individual rights and equality. horticultural societies promoted both slavery and human sacrifice. If matriarchy were to reappear today. Fejfar Some feminists argue that Patriarch is evil and matriarchy is good. Fejfar. I argue that such consequences are exactly what we would see. Matriarchy By Anthony J. utilizes democratic procedures based upon reason and the individual inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Isaac Hecker.Chapter 14 Individual Rights and Patriarchy vs.A.

There are elected officials in Russia who openly belong to the Nazi Party. Fejfar.. we ask ourselves. Finally. Al Queda is a Nazi organization. First of all. most of us were shocked and simply could not figure out how it happened. “The Boys from Brasil?” This factual book was about the strong Nazi Party presence in Brasil resulting from the fact that so many German Nazi’s escaped Europe at the end of World War II and secretly emmigrated to Brasil and some other South American countries. there is a significant Nazi Party presence in Russia. Next. but I don’t think so. Now. J. Esq. where are these Nazi’s coming from? Some might naively think that the Nazi movement is a thing of the past. Fejfar Sometimes. This has been reported in the news.D. and have been sympathetic to Nazi Germany. After the 9/11 debacle. and organization one does not typically associate with the middle eastern mind. truth is stranger than fiction. So. we have the East German Nazi Party which basically operated as the East German Communist Party until the Wall went down.Chapter 15 1 Is Al Queda a Nazi Terrorist Organization? By Anthony J. although Moslems from the Middleast were clearly involved. like Opus Dei.. as the saying goes. Remember the book. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. analytic thought. the whole thing took the type of planning. where did Al Queda come from? My argument is that apparently. There is a strong Nazi movement . both Portugal and to some degree Spain have had fascist regimes which are. one might ask. With all due respect.

On the level of experience knowing is much like Philosopher Husserl would have us believe when we institute the Epoche.” It is possible if one puts one’s mind in a trance state.

Esq. rationalists. In fact.. we must institute the Epoche. not simply through an undifferentiated idea of wisdom or intuition. to bracket or give up all meaning categories.

Chapter 231 Motivation and Self-Transcendence By Anthony J. Fejfar, J.D., Esq., Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar Abraham Maslow, in his work on management and work motivation, states that the highest level of motivation is that of “Self-Actualization.” highest level of motivation is that of Self-Transcendence. In his Book, “Motivation and Personality,” Abraham Maslow describes the levels of motivation that humans have based on human needs: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Physiological Needs Safety Needs Belongingness Needs Esteem Needs Self-Actualization Needs I, on the other hand, argue that the

Thus, the most basic need for a human being is food, clothing, shelter, etc. Next, is the need to be safe from attack or natural disaster. Next, is the need to belong. Next is the need to have selfesteem, or to feel good or positive about what one has accomplished. Finally, there is the need to selfactualize. The need to self-actualize is the need to actualize meaningful projects in one’s life. But, I argue there is at least one more level of Need, and Motivation, that is, Self-Transcendence. Thus, the scale of needs is as follows:

1. Physiological Safety Needs 2. Belongingness Needs 3. Esteem Needs 4. Self-Actualization Needs 5. The Need for Self-Transcendence Jesuit Philosopher Bernard Lonergan argues in his work that humans have a need for SelfTranscendence. This means that one must move beyond the ego to the Self, and, then, Transcend with the Self. The Self is the Spiritual aspect of the person. Thus, Self-transcendence means that one transcends the ego with the Self and chooses higher Spiritual Values. I argue that this, level, SelfTranscendence, is the Highest Level of Human Motivation, and that Maslow’s work needs to be revised.

Chapter 24 Natural Law and Music By Anthony J. Fejfar, B.A., J.D., Esq., Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar Some people doubt the existence of Natural Law. Some go as far as to say that believing in Natural Law is delusional. Typically, we think of Natural Law as applying in such areas as Ethics or Morality. But in fact, Natural Law applies across a wide spectrum of human activity. One such area is Music. Now, you may not know it, but Music has a Natural Law Mathematical structure to it. The tones and octaves of Music can be represented Mathematically. In fact, during the Medieval period in Europe, Royals and the Nobility were tutored in Music by learning the Mathematics of Music first, before learning to play a musical instrument. Some composers of Music also understand the Natural Law Mathematics of Music and use this knowledge in writing new Music. Now, you may not have really understood the point here. A carved flute, a set of drums with tones, a strung guitar of wood, all can be made my human hands and played, and, the Music which comes out of each of these instruments, magically, so to speak, can be understood and represented Mathematically. Thus, it is clear, by reason of this proof, that Natural Law Music inheres naturally in the very state of Reality itself, prior to any human understanding of it. This, of course, applies by analogy in other areas of human endevour.

John Doe spends 2 months on a psychiatric ward for having “dangerous ideas. but in fact this is probably the only way that John Doe will avoid spending the rest of his life in . What is the forensic psychiatrist to do in this situation? Well. Psychiatry. I would like to point out one instance where psychiatry helps promote justice. John Doe thinks that he has the protection of free speech and freedom of the press under the United States Constitution. After the transfer. can help to end the “frame” of a criminal defendant. John Doe is arrested. John Doe spends 20 days in jail and then is transferred to a forensic psychiatric ward for evaluation of judicial competency to stand trial. this may seem unfair.Chapter 27 Psychiatry and Justice By Anthony J.” and then at the time of his discharge.D. interestingly enough.

If you were truly evil then you went to Hell. or to define it out of existence. In the old view. if they ever did. So people soon either tried to redefine Hell. and Spiritual . this began to fade. I would like to argue that Heaven and Hell no longer exist. the problem was that Satan was in charge in Hell. This was especially true when there were children of mixed Protestant Catholic marriages. my Protestant friend might think I was going to Hell for not being a “Born Again” Christian. you could not go to Hell. Once in Purgatory. they try to find the Spirit in other religious traditions. praying for a friend or relative who was in the “wrong” religion. If God is in charge in Hell. On the other hand. Purgatory is a place for education. his Catholic friend might think that he was going to Hell for missing Mass on Sunday. and instead what exists is something like Purgatory.little bit extreme. some contemporary theologians define Hell as the complete separation from God. In fact. Obviously. instead one is being punished by him. Purgatory is defined as a place which is conducive to Spiritual Growth. it only makes sense that people are punished in Hell if God is in charge in Hell. and I. after ecumenism. I guess it was possible that some would spend a very long time in Purgatory. Somehow. that is. But. not Satan. or something else. Where before. It’s hard for a kid to think that one of his parents was going to Hell for being in the wrong religion. both cannot be true.” Now. The last problem with Hell is ecumenism. In fact. the idea was that you spent time in Purgatory before you could go to Heaven. there were always conceptual problems with Hell. if one was Satanically evil. then obviously a person in Hell is not separated from him. reflection. So. Additionally. then. there is Purgatory. it is generally thought that Satan tempts people to be evil on Earth. many of us cheated. Many Catholics and Protestants are ecumenical. even in the old view. Finally. Satan is considered to be evil. in the old view. Perhaps he might reward you for being evil. then one might ask why Satan would torture you in Hell. never quite “getting it. But.

to “Virtual Hell. Recall. Newton describes a Spirit World which is ordered toward spiritual and intellectual growth. Since spiritual growth can go on forever. it would seem that the notion of a “Perfect” Heaven is not logical.” on the bottom end. One might argue that Purgatory ranges from “Virtual Heaven” on the top end. that we return to between lives on Earth. if you spend all your time on Earth being antiintellectual and anti-spiritual. by psychologist Michael Newton. Purgatory is a Spirit World which is based upon the paradigm of spiritual and intellectual growth. Journey of Souls. In his book. at this point the notion of Reincarnation. You see. It is this World.Growth. Those who are in sync with this paradigm find Purgatory to be Heavenly. Perhaps. If we do not learn our lessons in the Spirit World. this Purgatory. and those who are not. I argue that Reincarnation is ordered toward personal growth. . both spiritually and intellectually. Hell only exists for those who reject the existence of Purgatory. then we must learn them on Earth in later lives. then. and for no others. then you are going to find Purgatory to be a difficult place to be. find it to be Hellish.

Thus. I suppose. for Seth. Seth argues that the ultimate nature of Reality is Consciousness. for Seth.A. Fejfar.D.. Critical Thomist realism and Sethian idealism are reconciled.

. then it seems to me that the Holy Spirit is in many respects a feminine Spirit. then. As I have argued before.. the Holy Spirit. then.

Only Intuition or Mysticism can really understand this.

It is time that the medieval rule governing leases should change. The tenant should be seen as receiving an equitable estate or equitable use from the landlord so that equity courts can intervene on behalf of tenants against the more powerful landlords. that is.Chapter 35 The Lease as an Equitable Use By Anthony J.A.. a lease from a financially successful landlord to a tenant with little money. lending money at interest.

Historians have argued that the lease was originally a vehicle used by usurious money lenders in medieval England to avoid the ecclesiastical and equitable prohibition against usury. however. the tenant’s estate was considered to be a non- freehold interest which was governed by common law property law in the law courts.. the lender would become the tenant of a noble with land.

Contingent Fee lawyers argue that this system is just because they don’t always win every case.

This money then goes into the Lawyer Trust Fund account for the Client’s benefit. Successful civil lawsuits end illegal freeloading by persons who break the law. the bank or Law Firm get a premium interest rate of 25% on the principal amount per annum. The only way the Client is ever personally liable for the amount loaned is if the Client fires the Lawyer prior to the conclusion of the case. in a typical case. This is like a contingent fee because the obligation to repay is contingent upon the client’s recovery of money in a lawsuit. I also argue that this way of financing civil litigation would be economically efficient. Attorney’s Firm loans Client $15. a bank or a law firm. There really is no more conflict of interest for a lawyer than there would be with an ordinary contingent fee. So. the lender bank or Law Firm will be entitled to a $15.

I argue that where the amount involved in a balance discrepancy is de minimus relative to the overall budget or account involved. but perhaps unattractive to some accountants who desire perfection. you simply make a credit or debit entry in to the “adjusting entry account” in order to get the “correct” balance. and have saved ourselves some time and money to boot.balance was off only by $100.” to reconcile the balance. that it is perfectly acceptable to set up an “adjusting entry account.

Thus. let us move to the level of Understanding.can simply say that Experience by itself is inadequate because Experience can be fooled by sensory illusions such as the appearance of a straight stick looking crooked when placed in a glass tank of water. at the level of Understanding. The postmodernist might argue. one asks all the pertinent questions. not just describe it. One also categorizes the data of Experience. it is not antienvironment. and. I would search for another Paradigm which was more adequate. the idea of logical constistency. in the context of Understanding and Reflection and Judgment. Logic helps us to see that certain ideas are rational and others are not. that likes should be treated alike. for example. one probably would argue along the lines of hermeneutics. And. survives the postmodern critique. In attempting to deconstruct Understanding. Who? What? Why? When? Where? Etc. that scientific inquiry uses “Paradigms” in order to understand reality.

However. that many Paradigms seem to be incommensurate with each other. it is not homophobic. racist. In terms of postmodern deconstruction. Experience.

At the level of Understanding. the hermeneutic circle is formed. one generates theories and hypothesis. it seems difficult to argue that Understanding is sexist. Now. as a general rule. there are some ideas or concepts which have a transcend function which help us to improve our understanding over what we had before. I would simply argue that I would search for a New Paradigm which reconciles the Old Paradigms. as an idea and an operation does not seem to .

As Frances Vaughn points out in her work. flies in the face of human experience and scientific fact. at least in part. I have argued that Intuition. Awakening Intuition. Understanding. Derrida’s postmodernism is flawed. Judgment and Reflection are Alinear Intuitive functions which act to transcend mere Understanding. Finally. Judgment and Reflection is the cognitive function or operation which takes Understanding and then evalutates it on a higher level. at the same time. So. While. where the mind interfaces with the Quantum Field. survives the postmodern critique. Additionally. I suppose that one might argue that Intution is irrational and false consciousness. then. especially taken in the context of the higher function of Judgment and Reflection. Intuition is what transforms mere analytic rationality into intellectual reason. There are hundred of studies which have scientifically proven the existence of Intution. or antienironment. is a Quantum Ability. he or she lacks the integration of Intuition with analytic understanding. All Derrida can do is deconstruct. it difficult to see how Intuition is culturally biased. In terms of the postmosdern critique.

Finally. in terms of the postmodern critique. we have contemporary Quantum Physics to explain to us how Intuition seems to work. The tradesman analyist is not an intellectual.

Truth, Relativism, and Evil By Anthony J. Fejfar, J.D., Esq., Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar

When I grew up, as a kid, it was generally understood that truth was good. It was generally good to tell the truth and not to lie. At a certain point, It was the middle of the Vietnam War and suddenly a

however, this began to change.

lot of people had a hard time finding the truth about Vietnam. We saw new reports, we saw government statements and we saw teenagers go off to war, many of whom never came back. Next, we began to see stories in the news at school about Northern Ireland. We were told that the war was a religious war and that basically both the Catholics and the Protestants were wrong. Northern Ireland was a scandal to the Christian Church. So, with all of this the teaching authority of both civil society and the church began to crumble. Soon, we began being taught relativism at school. And, relativism ended up being extreme relativism, that is, the idea that everything is relative. Only relative truth existed, and relative truth was really no truth at all. Very soon it became apparent that

an person arguing for truth or objectivity was considered to be evil. While relativism did not recognize the good, it did recognize evil, which was moral absolutism, absolute truth, etc. From a classical point of view then, it had gotten to the point that good was

evil and evil was good, a sure recipe for disaster. Now, absolute truth might exist, but I am not arguing for absolute truth. In fact, I like some aspects of relativism: a respect for minority positions and dissent and a willingness to revise one’s judgments about the truth when new evidence or a new understanding of the evidence is available. As a Critical Thomist, then, I argue for moderate relativism and moderate truth rather than extreme relativism or absolute truth. With moderate relativism there

is always room for reasonable argumentation, for two side of the story, for the adversarial system of justice, for constitutional democracy. Extreme relativism, in the

end, just leads us back to a naïve sort of authoritarian fundamentalism which is based upon an inauthentic adherence to some authority figure. In Amenrica, Military Officers swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, they do not swear a loyalty oath to a president or dictator. So, I argue that the best truth we can get is 99.999999999999% true. This is as good as it gets. Any truth statement made can always be subject to reasonable critique and revision. While some of us might wish for absolute truth, it is very hard to come by, and is often presented in a manipulative way. We are better off having a

society and a school system which is based upon moderate truth.

While some might

say that absolute truth is evil, I would say also that extreme relativism is evil, albeit, relatively evil.

After awhile. Because of this we developed to some extent what can be described as an Atomistic World View. though.

on the other hand. how is all of this reconciled with the old Atomistic theory? Most scientists would argue. This also accounts for the idea that medieval and ancient classical physics or metaphysics was. is a chameleon particle. Now. Thus. a positron. there really were no atoms. as still could be valid. it can also display as an electron. While the Quanta can certainly display itself as a Quanta. Food for thought. The Quantum Field and individual Quanta Particles simply played the parts necessary for ancient and medieval metaphysics to work. like string theory. the answer which I came up with. Perhaps in the ancient world where everyone believed in Form. even prior to reading about string theory. there is a Unitary Quantum Field. I argue that the Quanta subatomic particle. without any subatomic particles at all. is this: The ultimate building block of the universe is the Quanta subatomic particle. I argue that the transpersonal meaning reality of Western culture was so strong that the Quanta particles all masked themselves as Atoms. that Atomism was merely a mistaken theory. and Accident. The Quanta masks itself as other subatomic particles by reason of meaning and/or natural law. I suspect. etc. . how to reconcile string theory with Quantum Theory? Well.

Thus. Thus. While the Quanta can certainly display itself as a Quanta. In fact this is a good definition of Beinga Streams. it can also display as an electron. is a chameleon particle. Or perhaps there is a dialectical relationship in the Dao where Being manifests the Quantum Field and the Quantum Field manifests Being. although it stands on its own two feet independently of Quantum Physics. In Western indigenous . the question at this point is how can Quantum Physics be reconciled with Classical Metaphysics which utilizes the concept of Being as being the foundation for Reality? Well. etc Now. or thing. One might argue that Being manifests the Quantum Field. Now. if have referred to Beinga Streams as. or an Unrestricted Act of Understanding. one might argue that the Quantum Field manifests Being. and Unitary Quantum Field Theory exists as science. a quark. how to reconcile string theory with Quantum Theory? Well. Beinga Streams are Relational Meaning Streams. it is apparent that Beinga Streams or Relational Meaning Streams parallel the notion of Quantum Particles and Strings. Previously. there is a Unitary Quantum Field. is in fact an analogous concept. simultaneously. my argument is that the concept of being. The Quanta masks itself as other subatomic particles by reason of meaning and/or natural law. in Classical terms Being is Form of Form. Every rock has a spirit as does every blade of grass. But what is Being made of? Being is composed of Beinga Streams which take the function of Quanta Particles or Strings. like string theory. or on the other hand. which is my position. asserting that there is a spirit for every person. is this: The ultimate building block of the universe is the Quanta subatomic particle. I argue that the Quanta subatomic particle. Relational Meaning Streams.however. animal. It should be noted that Being as the Building Block of Reality is supported by the science of indigenous cultures. the answer which I came up with. Indigenous cultures are typically animistic. what then is the nature of Being? Well. even prior to reading about string theory. a positron.

Strings.culture these spirits were referred to as Elemental Spirits. and subject to revision. In fact. I argue that Beinga Streams. Moderate relativism supports the adversary system of justice and opposes the inquisition. Be Intelligent. and an Equitable interpretation of law. . be Loving. Moderate relativism means that we must follow the Transcendental Precepts of Be Attentive. you might ask what are the political implications of the foregoing. the notion of Beinga Streams. Moderate relativism means that we can have probabilistic knowledge of reality which is fallible. Moderate relativism means that it is possible that reasonable people can differ in their assessment of a problem. or Relational Meaning Streams. Quanta Particles. Be Reasonable. are all analogous to Elemental Spirits and in fact perform the same function in their respective cosmologies. Be Responsible. and must take logical arguments seriously. Moderate relativism means that the best form of government is a Constitutional Democracy which supports individual rights at law. and Strings. and Elemental Spirits. Quanta Particles. all support the idea of Moderate Relativism as the nature of knowledge and reality. Finally. Moderate relativism means that we still have logic and reason. Moderate relativism means that there can be two sides to an argument.

Chapter 63 Why Athiestic Materialism is Psychotic By Anthony J. Recall. wrongly. J. show us that causality exists. argue that atheistic materialism is not normative. But. I. let us consider the notion of God. atheistic materialism asserts that the ultimate nature of reality is that which is material. atheistic materialism asserts that Logical Positivism is a normative philosophy of knowledge or epistemology.A. B. The argument is that our sense experience and rigorous inferences therefrom. . Thomas Aquinas has presented a proof that God in fact exists. Fejfar Some people. The argument is the God is the First Cause which is an Uncaused Cause. that an infinite regress is irrational. Since the idea of an infinite regress of causes is irrational. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. atheistic materialism denies the existence of God. that psychosis is defined as that which is out of touch with reality.. which is itself an Uncaused Cause. Let us start by looking at the basic reality premises of atheistic materialism. there must have been a prior cause. Fejfar. Second. but instead. on the other hand. think that atheistic materialism is a normative position to take. or alternatively. that which is based upon the idea that atoms are the ultimate reality of the universe. or put another way. Finally. we must assume that there is a rational First Cause.. First.. then I am the efficient cause of that movement and that collision. Esq. it is apparent that for every effect. First.D. is psychotic. Once we understand that causality exists. if this is true. then this leads to an infinite regress of causes which either suggests the existence of God in reality. If I roll a ball into another ball.

and proceed to the levels of understanding and judgment/reflection. it is apparent that the crooked dowel appears to be crooked because of an optical illusion created by the water which acts like a prism. it is clear that atheistic materialism is wrong in asserting that the real nature of reality is atomistic materialism. atheistic materialism asserts that logical positivism is a normative epistemology or philosophy of knowledge. Logical positivism asserts that we know reality best through immediate sense experience and rigorous logical inferences based upon that sense experience. if I take that same wooden dowel. If sense experience is not universally reliable. one with straight dowel. In fact. this assumes that sense experience is universally reliable in disclosing reality. However. if I take a straight wooden dowel (stick) and look down the barrel of the stick my sense of sight shows the stick to be straight. In fact. If we transcend mere sense experience. However. So. Logical positivism is at a loss to explain how this could be. outside of spacetime. and look at the dowel through the side of the tank. sense impression. Finally. In fact logical positivism has been totally discredited. my sight sense impression has given me two completely contradictory views of reality. sense experience is not universally reliable in disclosing reality. is that the ultimate nature of reality is material atomism.The second position of atheistic materialism. and place it in a glass walled tank of water. Science is full of “anomalies” which cannot be explained by sense experience alone. Because the water bends light in a particular . which participates in the Quantum Field. one with crooked dowel. Thus. then there is no basis for logical positivism. contemporary science has proven that subatomic particles exist. the dowel appears to be crooked to my sight. For example. and that one subatomic particle is the Quantum Particle.

and. is psychotic. on all three counts discussed earlier. Thus. . in summing up. even though it is really straight. it can be seen that atheistic materialism is a false philosophy.way. from that point of view. logical positivism is rejected as a false philosophy in favor of Lonerganian Critical Realism. Thus. the dowel appears to crooked. or Fejfar’s Critical Thomism.

This is because Neo-thomism sort of fell off the map around 1960. I think that it is fair to describe Critical Thomism as a postmodern philosophy. we know on the basis of experience. they are more like guides or signposts. I have taken this position bccause Critical Thomism can.. While my Critical Thomist philosophy can be described as a Neo-thomist philosophy. While there is a certain foundationalism to Critical Thomism. Similarly. people expect you to fit your academic positions into consensually acceptable analytic categories. What we know. and does engage in critical deconstruction. not verbal orders of some sort. today. people expect you to have your philosophy to be either modernist or postmodernist.Chapter 64 Why Critical Thomism is a Postmodern Philosophy By Anthony J. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. not with absolute certainty. which can be revised and reformulated based . Esq. While the Platonic Forms exist for the Critical Thomist. we know probabilistically. it is not one which can be used deontologically. Before that. just as much as does the postmodernism of Derrida and Foucault. it was quite popular. rather than a modernist one. No. it can also then reconstruct in a way which is non-materially foundationalist. Critical Thomism is a fallible philosophy in many respects. What we know. After thinking it through.D. While Critical Thomism can decontruct. Fejfar. and intuitive judgment and reflection. many do not find this category helpful. Fejfar When you are in academia. at least in some circles.. understanding. J.

Logos. the existence and action of the Quantum Field. recognizes. Being. materialist. in its typical form is and was based upon scientific or atheistic materialism. on the other hand. it clear that Critical Thomism is not modernist. and intuitive judgment and reflection. better understanding. Metaphysics grounds and guides Critical Thomism in the same way that modern atheistic. Critical Thomism. Substance. . and Form. Additionally. science guided and grounded modernism. in the first instance.upon new experience. Modernism.

Santa Claus too. Fejfar Some people stop believing in Santa Claus around age 11. In spite of the cold weather that many of us endure at Christmas time. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J.Chapter 65 Why Santa Claus Really Exists By Anthony J. So. we find the time to put up the Christmas tree and find presents for our loved ones. As a Saint. I argue that the Holy Spirit. in the person of Santa Claus give us the Christmas Spirit. we know that Saint Nicholas. the North Pole exists on the Astral Plane. among other things. He is real as much as any other Saint was real. Perhaps. bringing presents to children on Christmas. It is said that many saints can levitate or teleport or maybe even multilocate. Saint Nicholas died at some point. I am putting forth the proposition that Santa Claus really exists and is the Spirit of Christmas. also know to us as Santa Claus.. Fejfar. historically. perhaps. has these gifts so that he actually does bring Christmas presents to some in a very short period of time on Earth. Apparently.D. In spite of low income for some .. B. It is said that one who has an Astral Body can materialize on Earth. I would like to argue for the Spiritual presence of Santa Claus at Christmas. actually lived in asia minor and is a canonized saint. The Christmas Spirit is amazing. Esq. J. or Santa Claus is present to us in our prayers and thoughts. Nicholas was known for. I argue that this is a mistake. Without this Spirit. but instead maintain their Astral Body after life. In the magical lore. Saint Nicholas. Additionally.A. an Santa Claus can come to us in his Astral Body. and of course passed over to the other side. it is said that some persons who die. I suspect that we would not be giving each other gifts at Christmas time. do not shed their Astral Bodies. Now..

I suspect that only Satanic parents refuse to give their children Christmas gifts if it is a Catholic household.households. the Christ Child. God’s greatest gift to us at Christmas. so we too give gifts to each other. Gifts at Christmas remind us of God’s generosity to us. is the gift of his Son. This is the true meaning of Christmas. And of course. . As God give us gifts.

is all about Wisdom. Wisdom is the enemy of Satanism. using philosophical intuition is able to find the knowledge that “falls between the cracks” of linear rationality.. Alinear Wisdom. B. we can see that Wisdom and Satanism are not the same and in fact are in many ways opposites. as some say. Satanism is ordered toward evil. If indeed the irrational is evil (with the exception of love). then Wisdom is not evil in this sense because Wisdom is arational not irrational. . Reason.Chapter 66 Why Wisdom is not Satanism By Anthony J. J. Fejfar. Satanism is based upon hatred. Satanism is based upon destroying the weak. Esq. or rationality.. is very linear in nature and as Bergson points out.D.. This is absolutely not true. In more direct terms. In fact. an entire book of the Bible. The Catholic Christian tradition has taught the importance of Wisdom throughout its history. The Book of Wisdom. Fejfar Some protestants seem to think that Wisdom is Satanic. misses many of the most important nuances about life and reality.A. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J.

Wisdom allows all three of the following: 1. and this is a very bad deal. on the other hand. Now. Although Wisdom is ordered toward the Good in the first instance.” as part of my Jesuit education. The good is used to promote the Good. it is difficult to find the foregoing list in any philosophical source. 2. himself. Satanists are hopelessly naïve in this regard. Finally. Satanism is a stupid move for those with small minds. Typically. Wisdom looks after the weak trying to help them. with the possible exception of Satan. that one can use evil instrumentally.Wisdom. but I found the foregoing to be taught to me. and ultimately Satanism self-destructs. evil selfdestructs. it is absolutely true that evil is simply as deficiency in the Good. Evil is used to combat Evil. the Jesuits teach Wisdom. Wisdom is based upon love not hatred. one must sell one’s soul to Satan to get anywhere with Satanism. “in between the lines. . Ultimately. Whether they realize it or not. I would like to point out that Satanism is a bad deal. Satan always breaches his contracts. 3. Now.

Currently. Another argument against adequate welfare is that if we paid enough for welfare this would exceed what a person would get working a full time job at minimum wage. in Pennsylvania. I respond by asserting that unless a person has a disability.A.. that person should be required to do volunteer work or go to school full time while on welfare. I am in favor of the social welfare net which prevents people from ending up out in the street or a homeless shelter if they lose their jobs. Esq. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. B. rather than working. I respond that minimum wage must be increased so that it pays enough or more than enough for a single person to live a normal life in a one bedroom apartment. Finally. For example.D. Fejfar. Here. J.Chapter 67 Workfare By Anthony J. This approach is totally unethical and absurd. I have been told that welfare for a single person pays only $600 per month. One argument against welfare is basically Satanic.. The idea is that poor people should be forced to commit suicide or be murdered so that they are not a drag on the economy. when rent for a single bedroom apartment is $550 a month and groceries are $400 per month.. Fejfar As a proponent of the Great Society. it is argued that if welfare pays enough for a person to have a decent life. some people will be freeloaders and choose welfare. welfare in many states is so minimal that there is almost no point to having it at all. . This workfare solution is economically efficient and prevents lazy people from getting a free handout.

So. rearrange the apple cart through a direct action. Zen Satori. Being is a relatively unitary metaphysical quiddity.

Time is experienced consciously as a flow.D. and shifts to the Zen of action. The end of Daoism is the Dao. When in the Dao an hour may seem like 5 minutes. of complementary opposites. you are not the Dao. as I have argued elsewhere. Fejfar Some argue that Daoism and Zen are basically the same spirituality or philosophy. I argue that is impossible to live a good life if it is spent entirely in the Dao. one is very direct. the good life is found I disagree. and one wants to move. Esq. it does not pass.A. to act. one lets reality come to you. one has found the Dao. all is passive. J. Fejfar. goes with the flow for as long as practicable. In the Dao time flows.
