(the demand for national mythos)
Um. when the atheists attack mythology – abrahamic or otherwise – they do not specify the means of graceful failure of decidability that mythos provide. That’s why one needs a founding mythos. Because there must exists some means of decision making in the absence of knowledge.
Hence why I argue for Self Authoring in the Virtues, and for the western historical ‘mythology’ of transcendence (progress into godhood). But what do we teach as decidability?
One needs an aspiration or it is impossible to construct a complete set of decidability. (really. It is. Sorry).
However, with that aspiration, the law is enough. The law brings us transcendence into gods, and into mystery of the universe.
The law is enough because it will produce transcendence. transcendence likewise will produce the law. So whether bottom up or top down we produce the combination of the law, ascendence, transcendence.
The Natural Law. The White Law. Reciprocity, and a canon of precompiled arguments for nearly every category of human decision making.
