Every human being stems from the Diabolic Alpha
And also aspires towards the Divine Omega,
But no two human beings stem from
Or aspire towards to exactly the same extent.
The higher the man, the more will he
Aspire towards the Divine Omega.
The lower the man, the more he will
Stem from the Diabolic Alpha.
Generally speaking, babies, children, youths,
Women, and tyrants stem from the Diabolic Alpha
To a greater extent than they aspire
Towards its antithesis in transcendent spirit,
And for this reason such creatures
Will rarely be popular with higher men,
Who as often as not lead a saint-like existence,
Scorning all but the minimum of sensuality
In allegiance to their spiritual aspirations.
But higher men are comparatively rare
Even in this ostensibly advanced age,
And are generally regarded as cranks or perverts
By the vulgar majority.
Nevertheless evolutionary progress requires
That an aspiration towards the Divine Omega
Be stepped-up at the expense of
A stemming from the Diabolic Alpha,
And therefore that mankind become
More spiritual the higher they evolve.
Doubtless babies, children, youths, women,
And tyrants will remain victims
Of a certain inescapable level of sensuality
For as long as they exist.
Nonetheless the pressure will be on adults
To improve their level of commitment
To the Divine Omega over the coming centuries.
Eventually there will be no human beings at all
But only Supermen, and so man
Will have been 'overcome' in the interests
Of a greater spiritual commitment
Than ever he could manage, what with
His natural body and sensual obligations.
Only a brain artificially supported and sustained
Would really be in an evolutionary position
To expand spirit to any radical extent,
An expansion which could only presuppose
Subsequent transformations ... as appertaining
To still higher stages of post-human life.
But there will be fools and ignoramuses among
The People who will persist
In trying to thwart evolutionary progress
And prevent such an eventuality
From finally coming to pass.
These fools and ignoramuses will stem
From the Diabolic Alpha to a greater extent
Than they aspire towards the Divine Omega,
Opposing those who are morally above them.
Life is often a struggle between
These two opposing tendencies,
Which respectively reflect 'the bad' and 'the good'.
No matter what the situation 'the good'
Must continue their struggle against 'the bad'
In order to improve the quality of life
In this world, and should eventually
Triumph over them altogether, bringing
Higher life on earth closer
To salvation in spiritual transcendence.
To the extent that the world is natural
It is bad, because barbarous.
To the extent that the world is artificial
It is good, because civilized.
The world only becomes better to the extent
That the artificial predominates over the natural.
For the more artificial it becomes,
The closer it draws to the Supernatural, and thus
To the attainment of the highest life form,
In the guise of collectivized new-brains
Artificially supported and sustained, to
The transcendental Beyond in which, ultimately,
Only the Omega Absolute
Of undifferentiated transcendent spirit
Will prevail for all eternity.
