Evolutionism

Evolutionism – the path that elevates a man from manhood to godhood:

Evolutionism: the path

I

Life is short, our brothers and sisters. Must it also be empty? Must it also be bitter? Must its passing hold terror?

Where is fulfillment to be found in the midst of shallow and empty things? Where is peace to be found in the midst of chaos and strife? Where is serenity to be obtained in a spiritual wasteland?

Seek no more, our brothers and sisters, for we give you these answers, and more.

We show you the meaning and the purpose of things. We lead you from confusion and uncertainty to knowledge; from weakness to strength; from frustrated desire to fulfillment.

We lead you to the path of life. We bring your souls into harmony, with the spirit of all things.

We give you the truth, which is this: there is physical reality, and that reality is creation, the material manifestation of the Creator.

II

The meaning of the truth is this: man is a part of the world, which is a part of the tangible universe, which is the material manifestation of the Creator. All the blazing suns of the firmament; the formless gas between the stars; the silent, frozen mountain peaks of the moon; the rustling trees of earthly forests; the teeming creatures of the dark ocean depths; and man are parts of the Creator’s material manifestation.

But the Creator has a spiritual manifestation, which is the urge toward the one purpose. The urge lies at the root of all things and is manifested in the relations between all things.

The urge is in the tenuous gases of the void, for they have a purpose, which are the flaming suns and all the planets, which form from them. The urge is in the earth, for it has a purpose, which is the realm of plants and animals which flourish on it. And the urge is in man, for he has a purpose, which is man-god.

And the purposes of all these things are steps on the path of life, which leads to the one purpose, which is the self-realization of the Creator and completion of the creation.

III

Man is of the Creator, and his purpose is the Creator’s purpose. And this signifies: man is, in part, both the substance and the means of the Creator, and he is nothing else; this is his entire being and purpose.

And man serves the Creator’s purpose in two ways. The first way is the way of all the other parts of the tangible universe; it is the way of sub-man; it is the blind way; it is the way of instinct. The second way is the way of man-god; it is the sighted way; it is the way of free consciousness and of true reason; which is to say, it is the way of the perfect union of man’s instinct with man’s reason, which perfect union we call free consciousness.

IV

The meaning of the first way is this: the purpose of the Creator is self-completion; the path of the Creator toward self-completion is the path of life; and man is a step on this path.

The Creator existed before man, and the Creator will exist after man has surpassed himself. The step on the Path before man was sub-man, and the step on the Path after man is man-god. But man is now, for a time, a part of the tangible universe, which is the material manifestation of the Creator.

V

And the meaning of the second way in which man serves the Creator’s purpose is this: The evolution of the Creator toward self-completion is an evolution in spirit as well as in matter. Self-completion, which is self-realization, is the attainment of perfect self-consciousness.

Man stands between sub-man and man-god, between immanent consciousness and awakened consciousness, between unawareness of his identity and his mission and a state of free consciousness. Some men will cross the threshold, and some will not.

Those who attain free consciousness will ascend the path of life toward their destiny, which is godhood; which is to say, the path of life leads upward toward the state of man-god, from instinct to free conscience, from fleshy body to fiery plasma body limited by heavy water and traveling through space as a ray of cosmic light, from earth towards the stars of the universe. True reason will illuminate the path for them and give them foresight; it will be a mighty aid to the Creator’s urge within them.

And those who do not attain free consciousness will continue groping in the darkness, and their feet will be tripped by the snares of false reason, and they will stumble from the path, and they will fall into the depths of the earth.

For the threshold at which man stands is a dangerous threshold, a difficult threshold. And man’s reason is a dangerous achievement. Just as it can give eyes to his instinct, which is the immanent consciousness of the tangible universe acting in him, so it can confuse and mislead his instinct.

VI

And let us now understand the present state of man, so that we can distinguish true reason from false reason. Let us employ true reason, so that it can guide us across the threshold of free consciousness.

The difference between true reason and false reason is this: True reason seeks to guide man’s actions in accord with the immanent consciousness of the tangible universe, while false reason does not.

The man or woman of true reason seeks order in all things, and he shuns chaos. He is pleased by a harmonious relationship between all the elements of his life and the world.

He is happy in the knowledge that what was true and good yesterday will be true and good tomorrow. Through order and harmony, he seeks true progress, which is the ascent of the path of life; but he shuns frivolous change, which destroys the harmony between the past and the future.

He loves truth, and he hates falsehood.

He loves beauty, and he hates ugliness.

He loves what is natural in all things, and he hates perversion.

And all these predispositions of the man or woman of true reason are like rays thrown out by the spark which burns in his soul. And this spark is the consciousness of the Creator. It is the presence of the Creator’s urge in him.

VII

The spark burns brightly in some men, and their reason is true. It burns less brightly in others, and in them true reason may give way to false reason.

For the urge is in all things, but the state of consciousness of the Creator is more highly evolved in some things than in others. It is more highly evolved in living things than in non-living things; in man than in other animals; and in some men than in other men. There exists in the various living creatures a continuous hierarchy of states of the immanent consciousness of the Creator.

In the best of times men and women of true reason prevail, and there is true progress.

But in the worst of times false reason overcomes true reason. Then the liars abound.

And then all the other evils come forth: Falsehood is held up in the place of truth. Ugliness is preferred over beauty. Perversion is everywhere and is praised as natural. Disharmony and disorder rule men’s lives, and those of true reason are frustrated in their desires.

Lies are heard everywhere, and few speak against them. Evil deeds are seen everywhere, and few act against them. All that is good is reviled. All that is alien and discordant grows and multiplies. There is no true reason in the masses of men, and they are without direction or purpose.

Then most men live from day to day, and their only thought is of themselves. Through intoxication with alcohol, tobacco and drugs and through every form of sexual perversion they turn their thoughts away from the meaninglessness of their existence.

Some men attempt to give directions to their lives, but they are false directions. Their purposes may be to wield power over other men. But unless these purposes are related to the Creator’s purpose the lives of those who pursue them are as without meaning as the lives of those with no purpose.

For falsehood may often have the appearance of truth, but it remains false nevertheless. A man may rule over nations, but if he does not direct his life in accordance with the one purpose, he may as well not have lived.

VIII

Death comes to the man or woman without free consciousness as it comes to the sub-man: living matter becomes non-living matter; meaningless life becomes meaningless death; the personality goes down to the depth of the earth. Eternal nothingness is the destiny of those who are spiritually empty.

But he who has attained a state of free consciousness partakes of the immortality of the Creator in the way of man-god: his fleshy body is transformed to fiery plasma body limited by heavy water, and he ascends from the earth towards the stars of the universe traveling through space as a ray of cosmic light.

He who is a member of the community of evolutionists is not annihilated by death, because his consciousness is one with that of the community of evolutionists. So long as the community of evolutionists lives, his consciousness lives; and so long as the community of evolutionists serves the one purpose, he who served that purpose before the perishing of his body serves it in eternity.

IX

The gathering of the members of the community of evolutionists is called the community of evolutionists; it is the community of those who would become the free peoples of the earth.

And free peoples of the earth are known by these four things: knowledge, consciousness, discipline, and service; they are the things for which the members of the community of evolutionists strive.

By knowledge is meant understanding of the truth. It is attained by the receptive learner through diligent study of the teachings of the community of evolutionists.

By consciousness is meant the awakened state of those who have gone beyond knowledge and have partaken of the consciousness of the Creator which resides in their souls; they have understood the inner message and have seen that it is the same as the outer message, which is the message taught by the community of evolutionists. The attainment of consciousness, like knowledge, requires receptiveness and diligence, and it also requires good will.

Discipline comes from within. Without discipline, there is no mastery, and he who has not mastered the chaos of conflicting forces within himself cannot render full service. But discipline gives those who have attained knowledge and consciousness mastery over their own forces, so that those forces may serve the Creator’s purpose.

Service of the Creator’s purpose is the purpose of all things, and the purpose of the community of evolutionists is service which is conscious and disciplined. In this dangerous and difficult era of the threshold between man and man-god, many men have ceased serving the Creator’s purpose in the old way, which is the way of sub-man, the unconscious way, and they have not begun serving in the new way. False reason leads them instead into the grievous error of contravention of the Creator’s purpose.
But the members of the community of evolutionists serve in the new way, which is the way of man-god, the way of true reason. They are conscious agents of the Creator’s purpose.

And they are ordained to overcome the men of false reason and to put an end to the abominable deeds of all those who contravene the Creator’s purpose: the abominable deeds of sexual perversions (homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, incest, pedophilia (sexual relations with girls below 12 years of age)), abominations (child murders (abortions), change of gender, cannibalism, human cloning), intentional murder, enslavement of men/women and selling of men/women to slavery.

They are the beginning; they are the first crossers of the threshold; they are the pointers of the way, of the path of life. Through their service, they resume the never-ending ascent toward their destiny, which is godhood in the stars of heaven.

X

And this is our summons to you, our brothers and sisters; it is our call to all the men and women of our blood who are of good will:

Abandon falsehood and folly. Cast off alien ways and free yourselves from the snares of false reason. Turn away from the corruption of the decaying order of things.

Understand who you are and what your purpose is. Seek your destiny. Put your life into the service of truth.

Enter now into the community of evolutionists. Share our certainty that the Creator’s purpose will be fulfilled. Establish with us the foundations for the new order of things, which will rise in the place of the old. Cross with us the threshold of free consciousness.

Evolutionism: on living things

I

From the path we know these things:

There is physical reality, the creation.

The material manifestation of the Creator is the tangible universe, with all its non-living and living things, including man.

The spiritual manifestation of the Creator is the urge toward the one purpose. The urge lies at the root of all things and is manifested in the relations between all things.

The one purpose is the self-realization of the Creator: the self-completion of the self-created.

Man’s purpose is the creator’s purpose. He is a part of both the substance and the means of the Creator, and he is nothing else; this is his entire being and purpose.

Man serves the Creator’s purpose in two ways: unconsciously and consciously. In both ways, he follows the path of life, which is the Creator’s evolutionary path toward self-completion. He passes from step to step on the path, from sub-man to man-god.

In the unconscious way the passing is blind, an its driving force is instinct, which is a manifestation of the immanent consciousness of the tangible universe in man.

And in the conscious way the passing is guided by man’s awareness of his true identity and his true mission; this awareness illuminates the path before him and allows him to choose his steps.

II

These things, which we know, lead us to an understanding of the significance and value of all living things: of the variety of animals, of the races of man, and the varying qualities of individual men.

We understand that the living things developed from non-living things through the all-permeating urge toward self-realization: first, there was the urge, and through it came the ordering of non-living things; and the highest ordered became living. And the urge has ordered the living things, and through this ordering has come higher levels of consciousness. And the urge continues its ordering.

All matter, living and non-living, is ordered in a hierarchy: animate above inanimate, conscious above unconscious. The urge is toward higher consciousness; the purpose of all material things is the implementation of the urge, the service of the one purpose; and the value of each thing is its potential for serving the one purpose.

Now, our understanding of this truth must serve as a guide to us in evaluating all things living and non-living, animate and inanimate, human and non-human.

III

Some have taught falsely that all things, being of the Creator, are sacred and inviolable. They mean: sacred in the eyes of men; inviolable by men. They may be of good will, in wanting to restrain men from thoughtless destruction, in wanting to protect beautiful and noble living things, in wanting to preserve the harmony of the universe. But their understanding is limited, and their teaching is contrary to the purpose of the Creator’s purpose.

For man is not a spectator, but a participant; not a being apart, but a part of the tangible universe. And every living part of the tangible universe lives only by violating other parts; every animal must take unto itself other living things and must cast away its wastes.

It is only the Creator which is inviolable, only the one purpose that is sacred. The parts of the tangible universe come and go; they are subject to the eternal process of creation, which annihilates some, preserves some, and transforms some.

And man-god, freely conscious man, is an agent as well as a subject of this process. When a member of the community of evolutionists acts in accord with the one purpose, the Creator is acting.

Others have taught falsely that man himself is sacred and inviolable; that all who are men are immune to the process of creation, that men stand aside from it and above it, and that all men are of one kind.

But the value of man lies not in his conformation, nor in his ability to speak or to reason, except as these things aid him in serving the one purpose. If he does not serve the one purpose or contravenes the one purpose, his life is without value, his formation and reason meaningless.

IV

Thus are men ranked in value: First in value are those with free consciousness; they are those who walk the path of life with sure foresight; they are those who have crossed the threshold from man to man-god; they are those who serve the Creator’s purpose in full consciousness that they are of the Creator and in full knowledge of the way in which they serve; they are the awakened ones.

Next in value are those of goodwill and awakening consciousness; they are those who strive for free consciousness; they are those of the community of evolutionists.

After them are all those of the stock from which the awakened ones arise, those of the same race-soul; for they collectively are the reservoir in which man-god has his origin and from which man-god draws his replacements.

But in this reservoir men are also ranked in value: Those uncorrupted by false reason are higher, and those corrupted are lower.

Those of goodwill are higher, and those indifferent or serving alien masters are lower.

Those who have mastered themselves are higher, and those who have not are lower.

Those with great capability for knowledge are higher, and those with less capability are lower.

Those who are of strong constitution and who are well formed are higher, and those who are weak, sickly, or ill formed are lower.

And all other living things may also be ranked in value: men not of the stock from which the awakened ones arise; the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, the fishes of the sea; the smaller things which creep or crawl or fly; the large and small forms of inanimate life.

V

A living thing may realize its potential for good effect by proving either physical or spiritual sustenance for the stock of men from which the awakened ones arise:

It may provide physical sustenance, as the sheaf of grain or the steer provides bread or meat.

Or it may sustain those things which provide sustenance, as the grass of the meadow nourishes the steer or the microbes of the soil allow the grain to grow.

Or it may provide spiritual sustenance, as the trees of the forest, the flowers of the field, the strong and graceful beasts of prey provide beauty for the eye, instruction for the mind, and inspiration for the soul.

And a living thing may realize its potential for evil effect in all the ways it may harm the stock of men from which the awakened ones arise:

It may weaken or destroy that stock physically, as the plague microbe or the debilitating parasite wreaks its havoc.

Or it may deny that stock sustenance, as the swarm of locusts destroys the sustaining grain.

Or it may corrupt that stock through a mixing of bloods.

VI

Let us understand these latter evils:

The process of creation is a process of developing self-consciousness in the tangible universe. Its way has progressed from blindness to foresightedness, from unguided groping to the threshold of consciously directed progress.

Because its way has been a groping, bound in the fog of imperfect consciousness, creation has followed many channels; the urge has taken many directions.

In some channels the current of progress has been slow, and in some it has been rapid. Some channels have ended in stagnant ponds, and the urge has found no outlet. Some ponds have dried up altogether.

In other channels the current has been rapid, but the course of the channel has gone askew: reason has developed without consciousness, strength without discipline, action without service for the one purpose.

Thus are we to understand the diversity of the forms of life.

In one channel the current has been sufficiently rapid and the course sufficiently true that the stream of life has reached the edge of the fog. Beyond lies the open water in which distant goals can bee seen and a straight course chosen with foresight.

But other currents also run near the edge of the fog, and the danger still exists of being swept into a false channel, of being carried back into the fog, of emptying into a stagnant pond. And the closer we are these false channels, the greater the danger.

VII

And so, then, those living things which provide necessary physical and spiritual sustenance for the stock from which arise the awakened ones are good and should be preserved: the grain and the steer, just as the living forest, the flowers of the field, the eagle and the leopard, and all other living things necessary to these.

And those living things which weaken the stock from which the awakened ones arise, or deny it necessary sustenance are evil, and measures must be taken against them; against the disease organisms which plague sustenance, against the lesser stocks which may mix or corrupt.

VIII

In evaluating living things this also must be understood:

Our stock has reached a threshold, which separates the unconscious way of progress from the conscious way, and the values of all things change when this threshold is crossed.

In an age of immanent consciousness some living things served, through their very hostility, to advance our stock, as the wolf strengthens the stock of sheep by pruning away the slow and the infirm.

In an age of awakened consciousness, these things cease to serve; our stock will prune itself, and the pruning will better serve the one purpose, because it will be done with foresight.

But at the threshold we must use the greatest care; its crossing is a time of danger, in which the old way no longer serves, and the new way still waits beyond the threshold.

IX

And these are the qualities which man shall value in himself, both man-god and the stock from which man-god arises.

First, the brightness of the spark in his soul, which is the immanent consciousness of the Creator in him. The brighter it burns, the truer is a man’s inner sense of direction.

Second, the strength of his reason, for the perfect union of reason with immanent consciousness is free consciousness. The stronger is a man’s reason, the more effectively can he implement the Creator’s urge and the more truly steer his life’s course in the direction illuminated by the spark in his soul.

Third, the strength of his character, which is his ability to act in accord with his immanent consciousness and reason, overcoming the lesser urgings in himself, seeking consciousness, knowledge, material and spiritual progress. It is his ability to subordinate all the extraneous urgings, which are of the nature of sub-man and man, to the Creator’s urge, which is the nature of man-god.

Fourth, the physical constitution of his body, that it might serve well the one purpose. Thus are strength and soundness and keen senses to be valued, for they make the body a better tool; and beauty, for it manifests man’s nature and inspires his efforts to act in accord with the urgings of his race-soul.

X

These are the ways in which man shall consciously serve the Creator’s purpose, combining true reason with immanent consciousness in the advancement of his stock along the path of life:

He shall keep his stock pure; he shall not permit his blood to mix with that of other stocks, for each stock follows a different course along the path of life. When stocks are mixed, the inner sense of direction is lost, and with it the potential for attaining free consciousness.

He shall increase the number of his stock.

He shall so arrange his laws and his institutions so that in each generation men and women shall engender numbers of offspring in proportion to their own value: the best shall engender the most.
He shall act as all those forces of the tangible universe act, eradicating in each generation all the doers of abominable deeds of sexual perversions (homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, incest, pedophilia (sexual relations with girls below 12 years of age)), abominations (child murders (abortions), change of gender, cannibalism, human cloning), intentional murder, enslavement of men/women and selling of men/women to slavery

And he shall do these things in full consciousness of his identity as the means and substance of the Creator and the agent of the Creator’s purpose.

Evolutionism: on society

I

Human social institutions, like all other things, are of the Creator, and they cannot be perfect while the self-realization of the Creator remains incomplete. As men and all other things made by men they can only serve the one purpose imperfectly.

While men lack consciousness, their society reflects their blindness and their groping; its service fails; it even may become an instrument of retrogression, contravening the Creator’s purpose.

But when men are awakened, then their society should reflect their consciousness and their true reason; it should become an instrument of progress; it should manifest in its structure and in its institutions the Urge toward the one purpose.

How, then, should men who have been awakened constitute their society so that it may best serve the Creator’s purpose? How should they govern their community, which is the community of the evolutionists? What should be the forms and functions of their institutions?

We know that men who are members of the community of the evolutionists must keep their stock pure, increase their number, and make every place where they dwell safe for these purposes; they must strive for knowledge, consciousness, discipline, and service; they must judge themselves by their qualities and order themselves accordingly; and they must elevate the value of their stock from generation to generation.

These four concerns of men — survival, striving, order, and progress — are the proper determinants of human social institutions. Accordingly, human society has four proper functions: defense of the community and of the stock in which it is based; guidance of the striving of the community’s members; organization of the community for the maintenance of order and the effective pursuit of its purpose; and elevation of the value of the community’s stock.

II

The community of the evolutionists defends itself and the stock in which it is based by providing collective means for countering the dangers with which the individual man alone cannot contend. Armed protection of the community against those domestic and foreign enemies who would harm it is society’s defensive function.

Likewise all the doers of abominable deeds of sexual perversions (homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, incest, pedophilia (sexual relations with girls below 12 years of age)), abominations (child murders (abortions), change of gender, cannibalism, human cloning), intentional murder, enslavement of men/women and selling of men/women to slavery, who corrupt bodies and spirits of members of the community of the evolutionists by the above-mentioned abominable deeds, cannot remain in the community of evolutionists.

III

The community of evolutionists guides its members in their striving for knowledge, consciousness, discipline, and service by providing a social framework and social institutions within which each striver learns and grows and is shaped into an effective agent of the Creator’s purpose. These support and direct him; they give him both necessity and means.

Men’s knowledge comes not from their individual endeavors alone, but from the collective striving of the race over the endless course of generations. The community of evolutionists must preserve the knowledge gained in each generation and make it the basis for further gain in the next generation; it must impart to the members of the community of evolutionists knowledge gained by past generations; and it must facilitate the gain of new knowledge to be bequeathed to future generations.

The community of evolutionists must provide a framework, which encourages and rewards scholarship, and it must provide the institutions — the libraries, the schools, and the laboratories — within which scholars can seek knowledge effectively.

Above all else, the community of evolutionists must give direction to the gain of knowledge; for it is not mere knowledge itself for which the members of the community of evolutionists strive: it is knowledge which leads to understanding, knowledge which complements consciousness, knowledge which abets service of the one purpose. The community of evolutionists must ensure that the efforts of its knowledge-seekers are purposeful and coordinated; that every member remains aware of the Community’s direction and of its goal in his quest for knowledge, so that what he gains will be the gain of the community of evolutionists.

Those entrusted by the Community to supervise the guidance of its members, however, must ever be mindful that the path to knowledge takes many unexpected turns. The course of wisdom, therefore, is to avoid narrowness and to be ever ready to accept new ways to the goal, if they were better ways.

Many of the same institutions which guide the members of the community of evolutionists in their striving for knowledge also will guide the awakening of their consciousness and the building of their control over themselves. Schools must impart consciousness along with knowledge, and they must impart both in a manner which trains the awakening learners in self-mastery.

Service, above all else, requires guidance, so that the service of each member of the community of evolutionists complements and reinforces that of every other member. The community of evolutionists itself is an instrument of service; the performance of service is its reason for existence, and its every institution must manifest that reason.

The community of evolutionists, therefore, must have order and structure: each member has his place in the community of evolutionists, each place serves its purpose, and the purpose of every place is comprehended by the one purpose. Each member of the community of evolutionists serves according to his qualities: one in his way, and another in his — and it is good that there be many ways. But each way is guided; each member accepts the guidance of the community of evolutionists in the performance of his service.

IV

The community of evolutionists is not merely the sum of its members, its institutions, and its material assets; it is an organization, and its ability to perform its service depends upon the effective coordination of its components.

Without order, by which is meant the placing of members in accordance with their qualities, the community of evolutionists is incoherent, and it cannot progress.

Without structure, by which is meant the body of rules defining the relationships between its members and governing its institutions, the community of evolutionists has no strength, and it will fail.

The qualities of men and women grow from within. The community of evolutionists judges the qualities according to its standards.

Some qualities are manifest even in an infant. These include beauty, strength, vigor, and fidelity to the physical norms of the stock. Other qualities — intelligence and disposition — show themselves in the growing child; and some become visible only in full maturity, when the mind and character of the man or woman have developed for many years and been proved in attainments and in service.

The community of evolutionists must judge all of these qualities, throughout the life of each member, and it must act on its judgment in such a way that the order in the community of evolutionists best serves the Creator’s purpose. It must judge the infant, and decide whether or not his future lies in the community of evolutionists; it must judge the child, and train him according to his ability; and it must judge the adult, so that he is fitted to his task and to his station.

In every society men are ranked, in high station or low: some by the criterion of wealth, some by age, some by the favor of the mob, some by the qualities of their friends or associates, some by their mental or physical skills. But the community of evolutionists stands apart from other societies: its members attain their stations, and they ascend from one station to the next, according only to their value in the community’s performance of its service.

In every aspect of the community’s service, those who are ranked high guide those who are ranked beneath them, and the latter return respect for guidance. Authority to guide is granted by the community of evolutionists to those whose qualities, manifested in their prior attainments and service, provide assurance that the authority will serve well the community’s purpose, and it is granted in a measure corresponding to the assurance provided. With each grant of authority, a corresponding degree of responsibility is imposed.
And these are the four essential institutions of the community of evolutionists: the family, the academy, the corps of guardsmen, and the hierarchy.

The family is the institution by which the community regenerates itself. For the community of evolutionists the name of the institution has a special meaning. Others may call a family an extended group, including grandparents and other related persons. But by family we mean a man and a woman united by the community of evolutionists specifically for the purpose of engendering and nurturing children, and the children so engendered until they attain adulthood.

The community of evolutionists honors each man who is a father and each woman who is a mother, and the family in which the two are united, in a measure corresponding to the value of the children they engender; and this value is measured both by the qualities inherent in the children at their birth and by the development and strengthening of their qualities through proper nurture.

The academy is the institution by which the community of evolutionists educates its members, throughout their lives.

In the academy the children of the community of evolutionists receive a uniform grounding in language, history, music, and the other elements of their cultural heritage; they are made conscious of the spiritual basis of their existence and of the truth; and they begin the lifelong process of building will and character through discipline.

In the academy the youth of the community of evolutionists receive the training necessary to prepare them for their work in the community of evolutionists, in accord with their qualities.

And in the academy those adult members of the community of evolutionists who serve it as scholars carry on their work.

The corps of guardsmen is the institution by which the community of evolutionists defends itself against its enemies, both within and without.

The men of the community of evolutionists who are chosen to become guardsmen shall be trained and proven. They shall come only from among those ordained to a life of service to the one purpose, and they shall be only of the best of those: of the most disciplined, the most conscious, and the most capable. They shall be the strong right arm of the community of evolutionists, ever vigilant against the enemies of the community of evolutionists.

The hierarchy is the institution by which the community of evolutionists orders itself, rules itself, and holds itself to its proper course along the path of life.

The hierarchy is a community of judges within the community of evolutionists. When a man enters the first step, he is ordained a judge to a life of service to the one purpose.

Thereafter he may be the father of a family, or a scholar in the academy, or a guardian, or a worker in another field of service to the community of evolutionists, but he remains also a judge. As he advances in knowledge, in consciousness, in discipline, and in service, he is judged by those above him; and, according to their judgment, he may progress upward within the hierarchy, throughout his life.

The hierarchy guides and judges. It shapes structures and makes or changes rules, when those things are needed; otherwise it preserves what it has made. It looks to the future, foresees the needs of the community of evolutionists, and strives to fulfill those needs. Above all else, it keeps the community of evolutionists moving ever upward: toward new knowledge, higher levels of consciousness, greater strength and discipline, more effective service of the Creator’s purpose.

The community of evolutionists may have other institutions which serve its needs, but it must have these four: the family, by which it breeds and builds itself; the academy, by which it trains itself and grows in knowledge; the corps of guardsmen, by which it defends itself; and the hierarchy, by which it governs and guides itself.

V

The community of evolutionists progresses by traveling upward along the path of life from generation to generation: it elevates itself in both its physical and its spiritual aspects.

It strives toward man-god by eradicating in each generation all the doers of abominable deeds of sexual perversions (homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, incest, pedophilia (sexual relations with girls below 12 years of age)), abominations (child murders (abortions), change of gender, cannibalism, human cloning), intentional murder, enslavement of men/women and selling of men/women to slavery.

It orders its men and women according to their qualities.

The community of evolutionists also elevates itself by awakening more fully in each member the immanent consciousness of the tangible universe and by building in him the discipline needed to render more effective service; through the family and the academy it does these things, and it strives always to do them better.

And the community of evolutionists elevates itself by refining and strengthening all of its institutions, by striving to make them more perfect: to make the family an institution able to nurture and train children more suitably; to make the academy a more effective institution for raising these children to conscious, disciplined, and knowledgeable adulthood; to make the corps of guardsmen a stronger and more vigilant institution for safeguarding the community of evolutionists; and to make the hierarchy wiser, truer, and more effective in its guidance and judgment of the community of evolutionists, with each passing year.

Thus, the structure of the community of evolutionists, the form of its institutions and the rules, which govern them, evolve, just as does the stock in which the community of evolutionists is based. But they do not evolve blindly; they are guided with an ever-growing self-consciousness, with an ever-surer sense of direction along the path of life, with an ever brighter and clearer vision of the godhood which is the destiny of the stock whose members follow the path of life.

Telling a short and funny joke is the best way for the instructor to introduce himself or herself to the class after the instructor assigns who sits where, I always used alphabetical order for seating.
