Scionics Destroys Mysticism

REALITY:
Empiricism
empiricism-white
The empirical observation of reality is necessary for the extraction of knowledge of reality, and can serve to either verify or falsity one’s hypotheses regarding reality, further accelerating the acquisition of understanding and knowledge.
REASON:
Rationalism
rationality-white
Sound, logical reasoning is required to form logical, rational conclusions from the observations one makes, and to effectively extrapolate hypotheses beyond, and yet logically consistent with, that which has been observed.
SCIONICS:
Empiricorationalism
success-f-white
The integration of empiricism and rationalism  is  empiricorationalism, and is the most powerful path to knowledge, fulfillment, and success. Empiricorationalism is the epistemological approach of science and of Scionics Philosophy.

Epistemology is the study of the acquisition of knowledge, concepts and beliefs. The more accurate one’s knowledge and beliefs are, the more effective will one be in the pursuit of one’s goals.

Mysticism entails belief in the unreal or irrational. It thrives on dishonesty, self-deception, and mental laziness. It leads to unhappiness and non-fulfillment and, if taken to its logical end, to death itself.

Empiricorationalism entails belief in the real and rational. It extracts knowledge and understanding by integrating actual observations of reality (empiricism) with valid logical reasoning (rationalism). It thrives on honest, disciplined mental effort. It leads to happiness and fulfillment and, if taken to its logical end, beyond mere surviving to triumphantly thriving.

Scionics involves the ever-widening application of empiricorationalism to all facets of life and existence. It fully embraces reason and reality, while completely rejecting all forms of mysticism, superstition, wishful and magical thinking, uncritically accepted faith, and the like. Scionics employs scientific and business-like effort to extract maximum understanding and value from every situation.

The Scio-Society is a purely voluntary society, created for the purpose of debating, investigating, and furthering the development of Scionics Philosophy. All we ask is that members embrace rationality and reason, along with the “non-aggression principle.” This principle asserts that no individual or group of individuals may ethically initiate fraud, force or coercion against another, and may be colloquially expressed as “Live and let live.”

The Ultimate Foundation and Cause of Existence

GOD:
Theism
theism
Theism holds that the ultimate foundation and cause of all reality is a deity. This deity is often considered to have both anthropomorphic  and non-anthropomorphic characteristics. While this varies, the anthropomorphic qualities typically entail omniscience, omnibenevolence, having goals and purpose, and so on. The non-anthropomorphic qualities typically entail things like being eternal, infinite, omnipresent, and so on. A compelling empiricorational explanation for the existence of any deity does not exist.
NO GOD:
Atheism
atheism
Atheism asserts that the ultimate foundation and cause of reality does not involve a deity or any supernatural entity, and that such an entity does not exist at all. While atheists vary in their beliefs, they typically interpret or explain the universe in scientific terms. Despite the enormous power of such scientific explanations, no compelling empiricorational explanation has been put forth for explaining why anything at all exists in the first place. (The exception to the explanatory lack is the empiricorationalism view of matheism.)
PSYCHONIC PLENUM:
Matheism
matheism
Matheism identifies the eternal, infinite, and omnipresent truths of mathematics as  the ultimate foundation and cause of all reality . Raw consciousness (not organized mind) spontaneously arises, due to its own mathematical nature, wherever the truths of mathematics are true, i.e., everywhere. The  activity of this psychonic plenum (again, not mind) serves as the foundation and source of the physical laws of the universe. Existence exists, ultimately, because mathematical truth, and hence consciousness, cannot not exist.
The ever-widening scope of Scionics Philosophy often brings it into contact with concepts which historically have been considered the province of religion or spirituality. The term, “religion,” however, often has a quite well-deserved negative connotation amongst the non-mystical, due to its long association with countless mystical irrationalities, reality-evasions, inane rituals, worship of non-existent beings, and the like. Slightly better, perhaps, is the term, “spiritual,” but even that term has its linguistic roots in the mystical concept of the supernatural realm of spirits, so it really isn’t that much of an improvement. Human language, having developed in a world steeped in mysticism and scientific ignorance, lacks any term for referring to concepts which intersect with matters which have been traditionally classified as religious or spiritual, but which are nonetheless oriented on a strictly empiricorational, non-mystical basis. We have coined the term, “scio-spirituality,” for this purpose. Matheism and cosmic consciousness are among the central scio-spiritual concepts developed by Scionics.
 
Matheism shares features of both theism and atheism:
 
    • It shares the theistic recognition that the traditional non-anthropomorphic qualities of “god” are necessary qualities for whatever the foundation and cause of reality may be
    • It shares the atheistic rejection of the traditional anthropomorphic qualities of “god” as mystical nonsense, as well as the recognition that existence must be explained in empiricorational, scientific terms.
  •  
  • Matheism also introduces a number of unique concepts which are not held by either:

    • It firmly establishes that the eternal, infinite and omnipresent truths of mathematics are ontologically necessary, i.e., they cannot not exist, and that they serve as the ultimate foundation and cause of all reality.
    • It recognizes the important distinction between raw consciousness and organized mind, and due to the characteristics of consciousness, including its apparent absolute irreducibility, posits that the mathematical nature of consciousness is such that it spontaneously arises anywhere that the truths of mathematics are true, i.e., everywhere.
    • This cosmic consciousness, or psychonic plenum, acts in accordance with its own hedonic and mathematical nature. (Its hedonic nature arises from the fact that a fundamental aspect of consciousness is to react to that which it is conscious of; the psychonic plenum is only aware of, and reacting to, itself.)
    •  The mathematical and hedonic nature of the psychonic plenum causes it to spontaneously individuate into the eternal, infinite network of psychons, which manifest as the Planck units which serve as the matrix from which space, time, matter, energy, and all physical phenomena emerge.
    • Cosmic consciousness (the psychonic plenum) is comprised of raw, unorganized consciousness, whereas minds are a form of organized consciousness. Not being a mind, cosmic consciousness cannot form goals or make plans. Prayers or worship directed to it have no effect, just as prayers or worship directed to the laws of physics itself have no effect.
    • Cosmic consciousness (the psychonic plenum) is neither supernatural, nor mystical – it is the very matrix from which the entire natural world arises, and actually is existence itself, and all that it contains. Look around you. Look inward. You, and everything you will ever experience is ultimately grounded in, and ultimately is, this cosmic consciousness.
Below is the gateway to Scionics: “The Protocols of Scionics,” the seminal work on Scionics Philosophy. Much effort has been expended in making Scionics Philosophy both as detailed and as clear as possible, but in order to derive the maximum benefit from Scionics you must put aside your mysticism and maintain a strict adherence to rationality and reality.  Doing so is the key to embarking upon a truly valuable and enlightening journey.

WARNING

This book will probably NOT help you at all. Despite the fact that this book is completely founded in reality, maintains a constant adherence to reality in every word, and delivers incredible values, most people will reject its teachings.

So why would most people reject such powerful knowledge? It is because most human beings who have ever lived have been conditioned into loyalty to some form of mysticism, which exists in essentially infinite varieties. Mysticism is the opposite of reality-based thinking. The degree to which mysticism is embraced is the degree to which reality is rejected.

DEDICATION

This book is not dedicated to the many, but to the rare, precious few: the few who are truly loyal to reality. The few who are able to recognize and resist mysticism in all of its harmful and even deadly forms. The few who stand strong and often alone, against a mad mob vainly struggling to negate reality through irrational mystical bellowing. The few with the courage to lead the darkness-loving masses of humanity into the light of reason and reality, despite the ignorant cries of protest and resistance from those same masses.

Here's hoping that you are one of the precious, rare few.

If you are, this book is dedicated to you, a bearer of light.
