Concrete people cannot compare and contrast possible alternative future courses of action and choose a future which is logically superior. Fejfar. There is a sign at the head of each path.

given the goal of reaching your destination. and choose the path which logically is better. (Scroll down for the correct answer below after taking the test). 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. BEGIN the TEST. You are to compare and contrast the good and bad points about both paths A and B. .Path B has no snack bar Path B has no bridge and is open all the way Path B is a dirt path Now.

A Criminal Conviction requires that the Defendant must have really known what he or she was doing at a percentage of 99. and thus could be involuntary committed to a psychiatric ward for some period of time for being a danger to oneself or another. 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. yet still be acquitted of criminal charges for lack of specific or criminal intent. or there is no basis for specific intent. logically. Obviously. Finally. could not be involuntarily committed. 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.

Not only do I act to defend my own Rational Self Interest. Thus. Finally. not only do I argue for my Autonomy as paramount.

Dan was currently investigating the causes of mental illness. and was an investigative reporter. Dan had a different hypothesis. Dan wondered if most mental illness might be caused by the person.

Dan had a weekly column.D. from the University of Pittsburgh. J. the patient’s neurons just weren’t firing the right way. According to the psychiatrists. Fejfar Dan Spencer was a newspaper reporter for the Pittsburgh Enquirer Weekly Newspaper.

There could be no false gods or a God worshipped beside Caesar. J. not Roman Catholic. Why the Jewish worship of God was tolerated is unclear. Seth Speaks. Esq. I have it on good authority that the idea of Roman Catholicism was an invention of a religious affairs reporter for Newsweek Magazine.

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. maybe good start would be the development of an Episcopalian Catholic Church. the Mass is essentially a nature sacrifice. Now. 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. to me. We do not sacrifice the material body and blood of Jesus Christ in the Mass. not the sacrifice of a male on an altar.

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

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

Law is ordered toward Justice. which exists independent of any knower in Substantial Form.. Utility. not cookie cutters. J. however. B. This is the Platonist position. The Aristotelian position is that the Rule of Law. These are neither economic nor political principles. Esq. Contract. from time to time. is a Metaphysical Law. This is absurd.D. in the Communist Manifesto. and Equity is ordered toward Social Justice. Law is based upon four Natural Law Ethical Principles: Reciprocity. Thus. Proportionality.

I would simply note that even in corrupt Communist societies like the Soviet Union.

I argue that God favors the Rule of Law and Metaphysics. all exist in the World of the Forms as an aspect of the Rule of Law. The Forms are guides. For Theists.Chapter 13 God.

Patriarchy. First. Fejfar. While Jesus may have been married. on the other hand has produced political liberalism and the Rule of Law. not an authoritarian Father. I argue that such consequences are exactly what we would see. I argue that Patriarchy is good and matriarchy is evil. Christianity itself is based upon the norm of adolescent Son-Reason. since the time of its founder. 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. horticultural societies promoted both slavery and human sacrifice. Ken Wilber... while at first it would seem that only men would be satanically enslaved and sacrificed. If matriarchy were to reappear today. our culture promotes and enshrines adolescent Son-Reason. Esq. Additionally. As Jesus said in the . utilizes democratic procedures based upon reason and the individual inspiration of the Holy Spirit.Chapter 14 Individual Rights and Patriarchy vs. Fejfar Some feminists argue that Patriarch is evil and matriarchy is good. Patriarchy has two forms. that is Reason. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. The Paulist Order. Matriarchy By Anthony J. On the contrary. Isaac Hecker. there is no mention of this in the Gospels..

With all due respect. but I don’t think so. although Moslems from the Middleast were clearly involved. where are these Nazi’s coming from? Some might naively think that the Nazi movement is a thing of the past. Fejfar. as the saying goes. like Opus Dei. where did Al Queda come from? My argument is that apparently. “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. and have been sympathetic to Nazi Germany. we ask ourselves.

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.

it is apparent that Consciousness.

it is possible that a lawyer will recover hundreds of thousands of dollars in a given case. the ethics rules prohibit a lawyer from loaning money to a client on the theory that this creates a conflict of interest. is there anything that we could come up with which would take the best of the contingent fee and the .. and 40% of any recovery which takes place on appeal or as a result of an appeal. Contingent Fee lawyers argue that this system is just because they don’t always win every case. and very successful too. Fejfar.Chapter 37 The Contingent Loan for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses By Anthony J. Fejfar In Europe.

Additionally.000 as a Contingent Loan for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses. 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. So. There really is no more conflict of interest for a lawyer than there would be with an ordinary contingent fee. a bank or a law firm. I argue that this new litigation financing vehicle is ethical and legal. 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. where repayment of the loan is contingent upon the client recovering money in a lawsuit. But the amount of the contingent loan is based upon the actual attorney’s fees charged and expenses incurred. or another person. against which the lawyer will bill his fee of $150 per hour. Attorney’s Firm loans Client $15. the bank or Law Firm get a premium interest rate of 25% on the principal amount per annum. This money then goes into the Lawyer Trust Fund account for the Client’s benefit. the lender bank or Law Firm will be entitled to a $15.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. in a case where no money is recovered for the Client in the lawsuit. Because of the risk involved. A Contingent Loan for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses is a loan made by an investor. . Successful civil lawsuits end illegal freeloading by persons who break the law.

in an account which had anywhere from a couple of thousand dollars in it. at the end of every month you have to do a reconciling balance to ensure that you and the bank think that you have the same amount of money in your account.

If I were to follow the rules that I learned in my accounting classes. if you look at your check register. things are supposed to balance. the time taken to find the error might be very expensive. I would have to spend hours trying to find out why my balance was off by two or three dollars. Fejfar Although I must admit that I have only had 6 hours of accounting. I found that I was spending over $100 to correct an error which was only two or three dollars. Interestingly.. This is economically inefficient. and. in trying to balance my checkbook over the years I have found that I am typically off by a small amount of money. if the company had $3 billion budget and the .

it does not make much sense to spend thousands of dollars in accountant time trying to correct the problem. 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.” to reconcile the balance.

I argue that where the amount involved in a balance discrepancy is de minimus relative to the overall budget or account involved. . attractivc to me as a lawyer. and have saved ourselves some time and money to boot.balance was off only by $100. 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. that it is perfectly acceptable to set up an “adjusting entry account. but perhaps unattractive to some accountants who desire perfection.

I have come to the conclusion that I am an Episcopalian Catholic. we just didn’t realize it. Fejfar. When Henry married Anne. Bohemia became part of Great Britain.

I argue that many of us are Episcopalian Catholic. but few Episcopalian Catholic Churches. These Episcopalians. even today. considered themselves Protestant with their roots in the Anglican Church not the Byzantine Catholic Church. Thus. and because they did not have sufficient numbers or political power they had to try to fit into the established categories. and joined the Episcopalian Church. they were not Roman Catholic. even though we may be formally affiliated with the Anglican Church. When the revolutionary war came. and they were not Episcopalian Protestant. the Colonists left the Anglican Church. or the Roman Catholic Church. It is time for the Episcopalian Catholic Church to develop its own identity. that is the Church of England which supported the monarchy of King George. however. They were not Anglican. prior to the revolutionary war.When Episcopalian Catholics came to the American Colonies. and now were faced with an even more interesting dilemma. . they found Anglican Churches and Roman Catholic Churches. the Episcopalian Protestant Church.

One final objection to the Social Welfare Net is that it is impractical to put in place because of the working poor and lower middle class. there are many governmental programs open to the working poor and the middle class.

Ordinarily. it is best for a Criminal Defendant to plead Nolo Contendere.

Sometimes. obviously could not admit that it was a crime for him to be the King of the Jews and the Messiah.By Anthony J. Now. Now. 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. Once charged by Pilate for treason for being the King of the Jews and the Messiah. instead it is simply a refusal to contest the conviction that is entered without an innocent plea. knowing that a Nolo conviction cannot be used against him in a later disbarment proceeding. The Nolo plea is not an admission of guilt. however.A. Jesus said to Pilate. In so doing. J. B. an attorney defendant might take a Nolo plea to a crime but not confess guilt.

The postmodernist might argue. is a transcendental idea. following Thomas Kuhn’s work. one asks all the pertinent questions. I would simply argue that I would search for a New Paradigm which reconciles the Old Paradigms.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. in the context of Understanding and Reflection and Judgment. it is not homophobic. homophobic or anti-environment.

Additionally. there is the level of Judgment and Reflection. Understanding. outside of space-time. There are hundred of studies which have scientifically proven the existence of Intution.

As Frances Vaughn points out in her work. homophobic. we have contemporary Quantum Physics to explain to us how Intuition seems to work. or antienironment. however. it would appear that anyone can develop Intution through a sustained use of Meditation.

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.

Cause. on the other hand. how is all of this reconciled with the old Atomistic theory? Most scientists would argue. The Quantum Field and individual Quanta Particles simply played the parts necessary for ancient and medieval metaphysics to work. there really were no atoms. Perhaps in the ancient world where everyone believed in Form. even prior to reading about string theory. a quark.however. Food for thought. as still could be valid. is a chameleon particle. This also accounts for the idea that medieval and ancient classical physics or metaphysics was. and Accident. without any subatomic particles at all. I argue that the transpersonal meaning reality of Western culture was so strong that the Quanta particles all masked themselves as Atoms. of sorts. that Atomism was merely a mistaken theory. I argue that the Quanta subatomic particle. have a more subtle argument to be made. While the Quanta can certainly display itself as a Quanta. and Unitary Quantum Field Theory exists as science. the answer which I came up with. like string theory.

my argument is that the concept of being. 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. Relational Meaning Streams. like string theory. While the Quanta can certainly display itself as a Quanta.

Or perhaps there is a dialectical relationship in the Dao where Being manifests the Quantum Field and the Quantum Field manifests Being. Beinga Streams are Relational Meaning Streams. or on the other hand. the answer which I came up with. Indigenous cultures are typically animistic. in Classical terms Being is Form of Form. is in fact an analogous concept. Now. It should be noted that Being as the Building Block of Reality is supported by the science of indigenous cultures. In fact this is a good definition of Beinga Streams.however. although it stands on its own two feet independently of Quantum Physics. which is my position. or an Unrestricted Act of Understanding. what then is the nature of Being? Well. 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 positron. a quark. animal. is this: The ultimate building block of the universe is the Quanta subatomic particle. I argue that the Quanta subatomic particle.

Moderate relativism means that we can have probabilistic knowledge of reality which is fallible. Moderate relativism means that we must follow the Transcendental Precepts of Be Attentive. Moderate relativism means that it is possible that reasonable people can differ in their assessment of a problem. Moderate relativism means that the best form of government is a Constitutional Democracy which supports individual rights at law. are all analogous to Elemental Spirits and in fact perform the same function in their respective cosmologies.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. This workfare solution is economically efficient and prevents lazy people from getting a free handout. Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Finally. . One argument against welfare is basically Satanic. 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. Fejfar.. welfare in many states is so minimal that there is almost no point to having it at all.A.. some people will be freeloaders and choose welfare. Here. Fejfar As a proponent of the Great Society. in Pennsylvania. it is argued that if welfare pays enough for a person to have a decent life. 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. For example.Chapter 67 Workfare By Anthony J. This approach is totally unethical and absurd. I respond by asserting that unless a person has a disability. Currently. Esq. when rent for a single bedroom apartment is $550 a month and groceries are $400 per month. 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. B. rather than working. 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.

When one finds the balancing point between Ying and Yang. to act. goes with the flow for as long as practicable. as I have argued elsewhere.A. it does not pass. Whether explicitly stated or not. the good life is found I disagree. I argue that is impossible to live a good life if it is spent entirely in the Dao. It is impossible to be direct in the Dao. In the Dao. In fact. Fejfar Some argue that Daoism and Zen are basically the same spirituality or philosophy. In the Dao time flows. . When one is in a Zen mode of consciousness. In fact. Time is experienced consciously as a flow. So. one can only flow with the Dao. one is very direct. Being is a relatively unitary metaphysical quiddity.. one never seeks reality. and shifts to the Zen of action. The end of Daoism is the Dao. Time is alinear not linear. In fact in some ways Daoism and Zen are opposites.. where one begins in the Dao. and you are not being Daoist. on the other hand. When in the Dao reality is aunitary.
