GROKKING “ELDERS OF THE BLACK SUN” FRAME OF ARGUMENT.
When we say ‘Tradition’ we are using it as a noun, a synonym to ‘Perennial Wisdom’) – a metaphysical claim to Truth.
See: Perennial philosophy – Wikipedia
Specifically of the Traditionalist School (which purges the New Agey bs)

So you mean Wisdom (evidence of survival in use of prolongation of a group evolutionary strategy: ie Peterson’s ‘Darwinian Truth’ ) as an equivalent to Truth (testimony that is consistent, correspondent, coherent, operational, existentially possible, complete), independent of preference or good. And you mean Wisdom Literature rather than Scientific (Correspondent) Description.
And which Tradition are you referring to? French, Authoritarian, Supernatural, or Anglo, Contractual, Real?
I think you mean French, Authoritarian, Universal, and Supernatural, or the German restatement of Authoritarian, National, and Ideal(imaginary). But you don’t mean Anglo, Contractual, and Real (Science).
Ok… so yes, you are speaking in Postmodern (anti-scientific, anti-real, anti-darwinian) school of the French and Italian catholic reformists: Traditionalist School.
And, yes, you are relying on Perennialism (universalism, and eternalism of the content of the wisdom literature developed under agrarianism and pastoralism, but abandoned under industrialism.)
So, Continental (Secular Catholic), Postmodern (anti-realist, anti-scientific), literature and intutionism (anti-calculation).
And yes, this is the secularization of catholic authoritarian conformity of the laboring classes who cannot afford to learn, or are unable to learn, and then make use of calculation and computation for the purpose of competitive evolution, and so rely on sentimental stagnation as a resistance movement.
Ok. I think I get it.
Well, what I really like is the depth you’re going into. Good work.
