The Alchemical Dimension of Written Constitutions

Something more is going on with written constitutions in the [u]nited States and elsewhere in the West than simply a means to a better behaved government.  WheĆ°er the public recognizes it or not, they and the political systems that grow out of them have become vehicles for the alchemical refining of mankind, a process for mankind to achieve Godlikeness without God, to become what He is by nature or Essence and not by participation in His Grace, His outgoing Energies.

The European Union is being quite open about this in the symbols shown on their flag and coins.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the decision by EU leaders to adopt the flag as an EU emblem, the 19 euro area countries are issuing a special commemorative coin.  . . . It [the design of the coin--W.G.] comprises 12 stars that morph into human figures embracing the birth of a new Europe.

The symbol of the circle and its connection to rebirth is a well-known part of occult/alchemical lore.  Its proper name is the ouroboros.

It is hiding in plain sight on the E.U. flag:

Carl Jung said of the connection between man and the ouroboros

The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity or wholeness. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the prima materia of the art was man himself. The Ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow. This 'feed-back' process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the prima materia which [...] unquestionably stems from man's unconscious.

Whether in the E.U. or the [u]nited States or any other Western nation, then, it should be quite clear what is happening.  The written constitutions pit opposing forces against one another:  liberal and conservative, left and right, Republican and Democrat, Tory and Labour, rich and poor, man and woman, black and white, legislature and executive, elected and unelected officials, outsiders and incumbents, etc. ad infinitum.  And from this ‘clash of opposites’ mankind in these lands is refined to prima materia:  that is, it becomes more and more Godlike without the help of Christ the God-man and His Church, the fulfilment of the Devil’s promise made to Adam and Eve in the Garden.

One need only look at something like the Preamble of the [u]nited States Constitution to confirm this.  For what is it but a statement that ‘the people’ will make themselves virtuous through the structures set up in their charter, and not through fellow-working with God the Holy Ghost?

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Beware, Southron.  Beware, Westerner, wherever you are.  Understand what elections and constitutional government really mean for you.  Distance yourself from them as seems prudent, and think of how we may return to a Christian way of conducting politics.
