Prologue: In the Beginning

The field of Mathematics was first conceived as a sacred language of religious worship in Ancient India, to which the Arabs in the Middle East added their conception of God – “Allah” – as the numeral 0.  If we truly understand the diction of Math, then we understand the origin of all Life, the Universe, and Everything.  What is the Name of God, who the Hebrews call “I AM — WHO — I AM”, in the symbolism of Math?

The answer is simple:

0 ^ 0, otherwise known in English as “Love Determined To Love”, True Love, or Agape.

0 is God, Unconditional Love, which can be No Thing

^ is “to the Power of”, otherwise known as the Compulsion to Multiply, Reproduction, or Determination (The Holy Spirit)

We are now ready to understand how the Universe began.  God reproduced Himself (“Big Bang”) out of Himself (No Thing) until Life emerged from the Void.  This can be expressed in the formula to Life:

0 ^ 0 = 1

= is Any True Witness, or what in Quantum Physics is known as The Observer, Satan, God’s Mirror (or what Magicians and Scientists call “Chaos”)

1 is Any Thing

This is the secret to how all Life began from No Thing, the Ultimate Mystery of the Universe.  God loved Himself until He gave birth to Life, the Reflection of God or (0 ^ 0).  That is why the essence of Power in Life is Self Reflection, the ability to create multiple versions of yourself, the way God did before Time.  Gender pronouns are, of course, simply human designations for the No Thing that is Divine Love.

This is why racists, who harbor No Love, aka the Devil, in their hearts, are all damned to Eternal Hell – the Absence of God, or True Love, forever, until the Final Redemption (Never Where and No Time) when Creation mirrors God the Original (this is known as the Omega Point).  This is especially true for those racist towards Asian men – who believe ignorant lies about us, perpetuate those lies, or do us harm and withhold mercy and warm feelings – whom are “the least among us” in American society.


The Asian Love Series

“Ideology does indeed importantly contain many false propositions, such as the claim that Asians are inferior to Europeans or that the Queen of England is highly intelligent; but the falsity of such claims is not what is peculiarly ideological about them. What makes such false claims ideological is the motivation of their falsity: the fact that they encode emotive attitudes relevant to the reproduction of social power.”

— Terry Eagleton, The Ideology of the Aesthetic

The Interstitial Zone Series

“Whoever reaches into a rosebush may seize a handful of flowers; but no matter how many one holds, it’s only a small portion of the whole. Nevertheless, a handful is enough to experience the nature of the flowers. Only if we refuse to reach into the bush, because we can’t possibly seize all the flowers at once, or if we spread out our handful of roses as if it were the whole of the bush itself — only then does it bloom apart from us, unknown to us, and we are left alone.”

— Lou Andreas-Salomé, The Object of Nietzsche’s Desire


“Ideology must not so thoroughly center the subject as to castrate its desire; instead we must be both cajoled and chastised, made to feel both homeless and at home, folded upon the world yet reminded that our true resting place is in infinity.”

— Terry Eagleton, The Ideology of the Aesthetic


It’s all a matter of perspective.
