Jay Dyer: Knowledge Without Wisdom: Phaethon and Technocracy
Jay Dyer manages to get wrapped in levels of perception seldom afforded the rest of us. Readers will want to keep up with his articles for the honing of their subjective perceptions of the subtle and not-so-subtle workings of secrecy in statecraft. I will introduce TMM to Mr. Dyer’s work with this study by Dyer of Knowledge Without Wisdom.

Knowledge Without Wisdom: Phaethon and Technocracy
July 25, 2014 by Jay
In our emergent technocracy we are submerged in a sea of knowledge. Modern wonders reach their apex in the readily-available stores of knowledge at anyone’s fingertips. Given this seemingly magical commodity was heretofore unknown to vast swaths of now dead humanity, one would think man would jump at the opportunity to educate himself on any and every topic. Yet the reality is quite the contrary, as such a notion of aspiring, latent human potential had its origin in the universalized doctrine of “human reason” bequeathed to us from the Enlightenment. The vast online Alexandrian databases are only perused by a few, with the majority of humanity preferring to opt for a wasted life of the meaningless and mundane. In a strange twist that must baffle the modern progressive, humanity has devolved with the advent of their imagined tech utopia, not risen to the heights of transcendence. The question arises – what is the purpose of never ending streams of knowledge, without wisdom?
Before considering that question, we have to ask how we arrived at this point. For several hundred years, Western man in particular has been firmly convinced of the dogma that humans are blank slates awaiting only the right imprinting, the perfected external educational stimulant, and when the hallowed secular social order finally gets it just right, man would achieve his Promethean triumph. When the coming technocracy appears, universal education and global democratic republics full of enlightened, informed citizenry will lead the way into the great ascent to godhood. With a rising erection, the Enlightenment evangelists even hoped a fully global government would be conjured up, like some benevolent republican idealistic version of the Incarnation out of the Kantian noumena. Instead, it becomes more apparent each day that these ideologues were either duped or consciously evil. The presuppositions of existing modernity and its structures of power are still operating as if the Enlightenment “truths” are axiomatic givens – enshrined discoveries of the heroes of science that are no longer in question, as the verdict of reason and history are fully and ever vindicated. The hard truth is that the Enlightenment ideologues were not only fundamentally wrong, but they were funded by the banking cartel for the purpose of social disorder and reorganization. The dark lords of cash and subversive secret societies atop the idiot demagogues and salesmen were quite cognizant of the stupidity of such notions of Enlightenment tabula rasa anthropology, nevertheless, the endless stream of Dantons won out and even still never go away. All the while, the money power laughs a hearty satanic cackle as the centuries pass by.
And so here we a couple hundred years after 1789 and 1776 and what do we see? We see the intelligenstia operating as if physics and empiricism are actually explanatory “grand narratives.” In total hypocrisy, labeling religion a fictitious “grand narrative” that only existed because it had explanatory power and satiated human fears, these intellectually dishonest liars erected their own alternative narrative that daily assaults me, and which I gleefully dissect on a daily basis: The new Gospel of human ascent through “science.” One thinks here of August Comte’s patterned view of history where man passes from gradual stages of enlightenment, from primitive superstition and paganism, to rational monotheism, to philosophy and metaphysics, to physics and “social science.” Although nothing could be further from the truth as regards the actual working of science and the actual structures of human social order and history, this mythology is still modernity’s Heilsgeschichte. …
Writer Jeffrey Steinberg comments on this technocratic revolution as follows:
“Lord Bertrand Russell, who joined with the Frankfurt School in this effort at mass social engineering, spilled the beans, in his 1951 book, The Impact of Science on Society. He wrote:
‘Physiology and psychology afford fields for scientific technique which still await development. Two great men, Pavlov and Freud, have laid the foundation. I do not accept the view that they are in any essential conflict, but what structure will be built on their foundations is still in doubt. I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology…. Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called “education.” Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part…. It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.’

Glenn, thank you for the heads-up. I’ll do something about this problem. Fortunately, I’ve saved one of the articles linked below, so may post it after looking into copyright-neutral options.
