people in concrete operations cannot plan for the future. difficult type of thinking known as formal operations. hypo-deductive thought. In this essay I am giving a short test for formal operations so that the reader can see. and the second marked Path B. naïve thinking of concrete operations. making the path impassible. 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.. J. There is a sign at the head of each path. Concrete people cannot compare and contrast possible alternative future courses of action and choose a future which is logically superior.

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. . 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. (Scroll down for the correct answer below after taking the test).Path B has no snack bar Path B has no bridge and is open all the way Path B is a dirt path Now. BEGIN the TEST.

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

A Criminal Conviction requires that the Defendant must have really known what he or she was doing at a percentage of 99. Similarly.then it must be proved that the person’s intent is less accurate than 55% or better. or hallucinatory. such that the person cannot form regulatory intent. or criminal intent. Now.

Finally. for example. one could have the judicial intent necessary to own property or contract. it is equally true that a person could know reality at 87% probability but not 99. in order to be judicially incompetent to take care of your own personal or financial affairs (guardianship). and such a person could practice law. 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. that is. Again.9999999% . in order to be judicially incompetent to stand trial to form mens rea. such that the person cannot form contractual intent or ownership intent. However. contract. could not be subject to a guardianship.99999% probability. Obviously. 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. then it must be proved that the person’s intent/reality perception is less accurate than 85% or better. or to be judicially incompetent to practice law (hold a license). criminal intent. could not be involuntarily committed. but not have the judicial intent necessary to practice law or take care of one’s own affairs without supervision. or have dementia. if a person is alleged to be delusional.

According to the psychiatrists.Chapter 7 Drugs and Mental Illness A Work of Fiction An Allegorical Tale By Anthony J. Dan wondered if most mental illness might be caused by the person. so their careers would be destroyed. the patient’s neurons just weren’t firing the right way.

A Druid Mass. metaphysically. not the sacrifice of a male on an altar. like some sort of cannibals. it makes perfect sense that women can be Catholic Priests and offer the sacrifice of the Mass. is a Druid Catholic Mass. 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. Now. because. 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. the Mass is essentially a nature sacrifice. . to me.The real Catholic Mass.

Both these options seem unlikely based upon the current idea that humans evolved from apes on the African plains.

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

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

. and they manifest probabilistically. Fejfar. in the Communist Manifesto.A.. The Forms are guides. and Equity is ordered toward Social Justice. I argue that God favors the Rule of Law and Metaphysics.Chapter 13 God. Common Law Rules relating to Property. The Aristotelian position is that the Rule of Law. Fejfar The Rule of Law. I would simply note that even in corrupt Communist societies like the Soviet Union. B. Proportionality. however. These are neither economic nor political principles. Esq. The Rule of Law contains within it all the laws necessary for a Just and Equitable legal system. and the Rule of Law By Anthony J. all exist in the World of the Forms as an aspect of the Rule of Law. the Forms exist in the Mind of God. which exists independent of any knower. Contract. argued that Law is a sham. For Theists. J. Law is based upon four Natural Law Ethical Principles: Reciprocity. While Law may take economics or politics into account as factors to be considered. Tort. and merely reflects economics or politics. not cookie cutters. is a Metaphysical Law. in the World of The Forms. flawed. and Equity. Law cannot be reduced to mere economics or politics. . This is the Platonist position. Finally. and Procedural Law. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J.. Thus.D. Communism. This is absurd. which exists independent of any knower in Substantial Form. is a Metaphysical Law. There was a Soviet Constitution and a Soviet Judicial System. Utility. the masters of that society still felt that Law was needed. from time to time. Karl Marx. Law is ordered toward Justice.

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

“the Father has given everything over to the Son.Gospels. this is not authoritarian patriarchy.” Clearly. . Adolescent patriarchy is to be preferred to matriarchy.

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

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.

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

One might argue that Purgatory ranges from “Virtual Heaven” on the top end.” on the bottom end. then you are going to find Purgatory to be a difficult place to be. then we must learn them on Earth in later lives. Purgatory is a Spirit World which is based upon the paradigm of spiritual and intellectual growth. then. Those who are in sync with this paradigm find Purgatory to be Heavenly.Growth. and those who are not. Since spiritual growth can go on forever. I argue that Reincarnation is ordered toward personal growth.

The typical contingent fee agreement provides that the attorney will receive a percentage of any recovery that the client receives from the opposing party in litigation.D. that some contingent fee lawyers are very good at what they do.

So.litigation loan and form a new vehicle for financing litigation? I argue that the Contingent Loan for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses will help solve the problem. 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. But the amount of the contingent loan is based upon the actual attorney’s fees charged and expenses incurred. There really is no more conflict of interest for a lawyer than there would be with an ordinary contingent fee. I argue that this new litigation financing vehicle is ethical and legal.000 as a Contingent Loan for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses. I also argue that this way of financing civil litigation would be economically efficient. This is like a contingent fee because the obligation to repay is contingent upon the client’s recovery of money in a lawsuit. This money then goes into the Lawyer Trust Fund account for the Client’s benefit. in a case where no money is recovered for the Client in the lawsuit. against which the lawyer will bill his fee of $150 per hour. Additionally.000 business loss on its income tax return. . where repayment of the loan is contingent upon the client recovering money in a lawsuit. the bank or Law Firm get a premium interest rate of 25% on the principal amount per annum.

A Contingent Loan for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses is a loan made by an investor. Because of the risk involved.

Interestingly. in trying to balance my checkbook over the years I have found that I am typically off by a small amount of money. Once again. Esq. I found that I was spending over $100 to correct an error which was only two or three dollars. Since I think that my time as a lawyer is worth at least $50 per hour. The interesting thing about a checking account is that it is remarkably like an accounting system. there is a column for both credits and debits.

balance was off only by $100. The idea. . So what do we do? I argue that where the amount involved in a balance discrepancy is de minimus relative to the overall budget or account involved. you simply make a credit or debit entry in to the “adjusting entry account” in order to get the “correct” balance. is that when you are only off by a small amount. This could be made into a Generally Acceptable Accounting Principle (GAAP) and then we could all go home at night feeling good that we had balanced the budget. attractivc to me as a lawyer. it does not make much sense to spend thousands of dollars in accountant time trying to correct the problem. but perhaps unattractive to some accountants who desire perfection. that it is perfectly acceptable to set up an “adjusting entry account.” to reconcile the balance. and have saved ourselves some time and money to boot.

The argument is that people on welfare should not make more than a working poor person.without protest. as a matter of rational self interest. I will be guaranteed the basics of food. The Great Society is filled with Great Companies who have Great Employees working for them. From a Karmactic point of view.

a capable lawyer himself was placed in a difficult situation. just what is the Nolo Contendere plea? Well. what the Nolo plea does is state for the record that the Defendant is not opposing a conviction by the state of the Defendant for a particular crime.

Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. . one either pleads guilty or innocent. but on the other hand. an attorney defendant might take a Nolo plea to a crime but not confess guilt. and I have an answer. So. Esq. it is best for a Criminal Defendant to plead Nolo Contendere. The Nolo plea is often used where a Criminal Defendant is willing to take a Nolo to a lesser charge in exchange for a more serious charge being dropped. It is also used in some circumstances to avoid collateral use of a guilty plea conviction.

Jesus did not deny the charge. the Nolo plea of Jesus carried over into later ecclesial law and then the English Common Law.Jesus entered the first Nolo Contendere plea that we know of. Chapter 49 The Origins of the Crime of Penury . but on the other hand did not admit guilt. Obviously.

One also categorizes the data of Experience. homophobic or anti-environment. that scientific inquiry uses “Paradigms” in order to understand reality. I would search for another Paradigm which was more adequate. as a general rule. that likes should be treated alike. And. However. that meaning categories act to create reality. as Gadamer points out. Using Transcendental Method. it is not homophobic. it is not antienvironment. and compares and contrasts ideas and data. for example. one probably would argue along the lines of hermeneutics. the idea of logical constistency. Logic helps us to see that certain ideas are rational and others are not. Thus. it seems difficult to argue that Understanding is sexist. In this sense. I would simply argue that I would search for a New Paradigm which reconciles the Old Paradigms. and. let us move to the level of Understanding. if this new Paradigm turned out to be inadequate. one asks all the pertinent questions. Not much more can be said. Transcendental Method is cumulative and self correcting. Structures of Scientific Revolutions.

Intuition provides an Intellectual Sympathy which enables us to know reality more adequately. All Derrida can do is deconstruct. Derrida’s deconstruction does not survive Critical Thomist or Critical Realist postmodern critique. Awakening Intuition. where the mind interfaces with the Quantum Field.

As Frances Vaughn points out in her work. at the same time. non-locally. Derrida has no basis for reconstructing reality. at least in part. Judgment and Reflection is the cognitive function or operation which takes Understanding and then evalutates it on a higher level. however. So. then. especially taken in the context of the higher function of Judgment and Reflection. There are hundred of studies which have scientifically proven the existence of Intution. I have argued that Intuition. he or she lacks the integration of Intuition with analytic understanding. flies in the face of human experience and scientific fact. This. but instead seems to transcend culture. Derrida’s postmodernism is flawed. is a Quantum Ability. While. I suppose that one might argue that Intution is irrational and false consciousness. then. outside of space-time. culturally biased. As Bergson puts it.

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.

While the Quanta can certainly display itself as a Quanta. Now. This also accounts for the idea that medieval and ancient classical physics or metaphysics was. that Atomism was merely a mistaken theory. how is all of this reconciled with the old Atomistic theory? Most scientists would argue. there really were no atoms.

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

Moderate relativism means that we must follow the Transcendental Precepts of Be Attentive. Moderate relativism means that we can have probabilistic knowledge of reality which is fallible. and subject to revision.

Moderate relativism supports the adversary system of justice and opposes the inquisition. In fact. Quanta Particles.

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

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

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

D. While there is a certain foundationalism to Critical Thomism. While Critical Thomism can decontruct. people expect you to fit your academic positions into consensually acceptable analytic categories. not verbal orders of some sort. Fejfar When you are in academia. Critical Thomism is a fallible philosophy in many respects. people expect you to have your philosophy to be either modernist or postmodernist. This is because Neo-thomism sort of fell off the map around 1960. at least in some circles. they are more like guides or signposts. What we know. I think that it is fair to describe Critical Thomism as a postmodern philosophy. Similarly. and does engage in critical deconstruction. just as much as does the postmodernism of Derrida and Foucault. What we know. and intuitive judgment and reflection. it was quite popular.Chapter 64 Why Critical Thomism is a Postmodern Philosophy By Anthony J. J. which can be revised and reformulated based . it can also then reconstruct in a way which is non-materially foundationalist. many do not find this category helpful. While my Critical Thomist philosophy can be described as a Neo-thomist philosophy. not with absolute certainty. Before that. After thinking it through.

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

I suspect that only Satanic parents refuse to give their children Christmas gifts if it is a Catholic household. As God give us gifts. This is the true meaning of Christmas. And of course. God’s greatest gift to us at Christmas.

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

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

A. it is argued that if welfare pays enough for a person to have a decent life. I respond by asserting that unless a person has a disability. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. . B. Here.Chapter 67 Workfare By Anthony J.. This approach is totally unethical and absurd. This workfare solution is economically efficient and prevents lazy people from getting a free handout. Currently. 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. J. 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. I have been told that welfare for a single person pays only $600 per month.D. that person should be required to do volunteer work or go to school full time while on welfare. in Pennsylvania. One argument against welfare is basically Satanic. Finally.. Esq. some people will be freeloaders and choose welfare.. 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. For example. 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. Fejfar. rather than working. welfare in many states is so minimal that there is almost no point to having it at all. 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.

I argue that is impossible to live a good life if it is spent entirely in the Dao. is Insight drawn from Intuition. where one begins in the Dao. the good life is found I disagree. you are not the Dao.

So. go with the flow until nothing is happening. one lets reality come to you. and shifts to the Zen of action.

Whether explicitly stated or not. The end of Daoism is the Dao. J. one is very direct. Esq.D. When in the Dao an hour may seem like 5 minutes. one has found the Dao. It is impossible to be direct in the Dao. Daoism. if you are not in the flow of the Dao. goes with the flow for as long as practicable. on the other hand is a very “go with the flow” spirituality. When one is in a Zen mode of consciousness. all is passive. one never seeks reality. one can only flow with the Dao. it does not pass.Chapter 68 Zen and Daoism: Action and Inaction By Anthony J. on the one hand. the end of Zen is Being. which is a Ying/Yang. rearrange the apple cart through a direct action.
