Le Besoin d’Impossible

The first book published by Marie Cachet, Le Besoin d’Impossible, is a multiform work in its implications, but despite this it can be defined as a whole as a purely philosophical work. In this article I will not write a typical review, I plan instead to outline and expose the issues that have mostly caught my attention – to put it in the most modest way – during the study of the book (yes, it requires to be studied and not merely read…).

***

Let’s start from an assumption that, although discussed and deepened by the author in another context, is essential for a thorough understanding of the work that concerns us now: the modern European man – biologically speaking – is a slightly hybridized Neanderthal man (actually, every modern human being is a more or less hybridized creature, but since I am a European I will refer, when necessary, only to the European species). However, what does this have to do with questions of philosophical nature? According to Marie Cachet one of the consequences of this hybridization, even after its stabilization, was the birth of a metaphysical vertigo/despair, a disharmony of the mind (here is to be found, perhaps, the cause of the birth of consciousness?) that manifested itself simultaneously with the dramatic transition to a temporal (and thus finite) perception of the Universe. A real “fall” that took us far from the possibility of fathom and living the concepts of eternity (intended as the atemporal point that we call instant) and infinity (intended as spatial infinity).

At that point, however, our ancestors (as well as us today) tried instinctively, unconsciously and obsessively to compensate this metaphysical despair without being overwhelmed by the “terror of time”: an explosion of human dynamism, individual and collective, led progressively to the birth and development of civilizations, arts, sciences, spiritualities, religions and philosophies, all attempts to recreate the lost harmony of the mind and extend one’s personality beyond the boundaries of the biological duration of the existence, in an attempt to forge a sort of simulated eternity (the need for the impossible, as suggested by the title of the book).

Examples of materialization of the collective genetic memory of a people, in an attempt to be remembered in time:

Examples of materialization of the genetic memory of an individual, the sculptor, in an attempt to be remembered in time:

Therefore, according to Marie Cachet, every external creation as well as all forms of teaching are the manifestation of a deep necessity of the human beings, namely the selfish need to go beyond the yoke of time, beyond the finitude, so as to preserve themselves in time, through other people, symbolic containers of our self, potential reincarnations of our self. Artistic creations and teachings are therefore a means to conquer eternity and defeat the illusion of a finite time. We project our self in the future, through a real or imaginary reincarnation (I refer you to the prehistoric ritual of reincarnation described in detail by Madame Cachet in another context), which in turn will transmit in the future the essence of our self, in an eventual endless chain.

An essential distinction that emerges during the reading is that between the individuals conscious of their metaphysical despair (active and subjective individuals) and the vast majority of those who are not aware of it (passive and objective individuals), which unconsciously suffer the consequences of this disharmony. The religions (especially the organized religions) and the spiritualities that give us dogmatic and established metaphysical responses, the daily repetitiveness, the social conventions and all the entertainment we create in our societies are, although we do not realise it, tools that distract us and allow us to flee from the metaphysical anguish inherent in us, from the sacred terror that we experience in front of the mystery of the universe and of life. Only by getting rid of all this – especially of what provides us metaphysical answers – and through boredom, certain men will fall into the metaphysical despair and will find their authentic self (through the manifestation of the memories of our previous lives, memories engraved and latent in our blood), their true essence, undergoing a sort of “awakening”: achieved this superior spiritual and mental state, a deep impulse will force them to find their subjective responses to the fundamental dilemmas of the world and of life.

What about you? You dare to face the metaphysical abyss?

As I have previously explained, these are just some of the issues discussed in this book (a unique work of its kind), the ones that most involved me: ultimately, I urge you to read it and give shape to your personal opinion.

Last of a Kind

First read this: Introversion vs. Extroversion

And then this one: Hallow & Heal

“When I cannot stand alone, it will be time to die”.

-Robert E. Howard

The introvert human being is absorbed by the subject: himself, his thoughts, his inner world and generally speaking with everything that is cyclical and eternal. The introvert gives a preponderant role to subjective factors (he does things in his own way, ignoring or despising the conformism of other people), devaluating the external reality (specifically civilization and its creations, the opinions of other people, conformism, materialism, superficiality), he feels a sort of unappeasable longing, a condition to which he has no more access, a void that must seek to compensate (namely the ability to fathom eternity).

The extrovert human being is absorbed by the object: the outer world, the people and things around him and generally speaking everything that has to do with civilization in all its forms and creations, namely everything that is artificial and finite. The extrovert attitude has a spontaneous relation with the object, adapts well and easily to circumstances and bends to conformism with unconscious satisfaction. This type of man has no critical, original and really autonomous thoughts, feels no attraction towards spirituality and nature from a transcendent point of view, and is totally absorbed by the finite manifestations of reality.

What I want to suggest here is that introversion is a trait that we have inherited from the Neanderthal man (the Proto-European), while extroversion is a trait that appeared only and exclusively as a consequence of the hybridization between the Neanderthal man and the Homo Sapiens (the Proto-African).

Civilization is an outcome of extroversion, an extrovert entity directly related with the features of the domesticated and hybridized man. The extrovert human being fits perfectly well inside the mechanisms of civilization and is strongly domesticated, to the point of not realizing it.

On the other hand introversion is a feature that the best of us have inherited from our Neanderthal ancestors as they were prior to the hybridization, a feature linked with autism. Introverts often think for images, don’t care about the opinions of others, cannot bear noises, are deeply interested (almost obsessed) in specific subjects, fail to comply, love to stand on their own, to think and be surrounded by nature: all features found in the autistic spectrum.

P.S. I am NOT referring here to any type of autism with mental retardation. I refer only to High-Functioning Autism (Asperger Syndrome), an exclusively European feature.

Before the last Ice Age reached its maximum, it is estimated that the European population counted between 4’500 and 6’000 inhabitants, while at the end of it the density of the population varied between 0,04 and 0,1 persons for square kilometer, in relation to the ground and the climate. So it makes sense to think that introversion is a trait that we inherited from the Neanderthal man as he was in the Stone Age: he was not very social, and he encountered only occasionally other people. It’s only a matter of time and we will return to be like this, that we like it or not. The Ice Ages are the norm in Europe while hot periods are exceptions.

“Every human being is composed of two parts. Only one is essential. The other is the superficial, artificial and acquired part that is formed in social life and that creates the <<person>> of the individual: person, here, in the original meaning of the word, that, as known, means mask, the mask of the actor (in opposition to the <<face>>, that instead you can correspond with the other part, the essential one). Depending on the individuals, but also depending on the type of civilization, the one or the other part can be more developed. The degenerative limit corresponds with a quite exclusive development of the superficial and constructed part, of the <<mask>>.”

-Julius Evola

Dear introverts, you are the last of a kind: free in mind and spirit, the last hope for Europe and the European species. The Europeans were originally as you are! Remember this when you feel sad or even depressed. The world as it is today is not made for us, free human beings masters of ourselves, it is made for the domesticated man! But it will not last long!

When Trees don’t fear Death

Many European Traditionalists love to read books. We read to try to know and understand our past, our ancestors, our traditions, our history and in one sentence: who we are mentally, physically and spiritually. Not least, also to avoid this modern world so unnatural and just not made for us: it is made for the totally domesticated man.

The Golden Tablets of the Gods

The European spirituality, history, prehistory, religion, philosophy, traditions and mythologies have been corrupted, distorted and destroyed by the Jews and by their servants (i.e. the Christians).

As always, however, they have failed in the long run. The European gods and goddesses are inside us and we have finally found again the golden tablets we used to possess in the past. So let me share with you the wisdom of our dear Varg Vikernes and Marie Cachet:

Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia: http://www.amazon.com/Sorcery-Religion-Ancient-Scandinavia-Vikernes/dp/0956695930?ie=UTF8&qid=1462735984&ref_=tmm_pap_swatch_0&sr=1-4

Thanks to Marie Cachet (https://atala.fr/) now we not only know who we really are, but we can also banish from our minds the official theory propagated as a universal truth by the media, by the educational system and by the entertainment industry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_of_Africa_I

Yes, a mere hypothesis is passed off as the absolute truth about our origins…cui bono? Well, I will just tell you that the Out of Africa theory has been made up to sustain as much as possible Marxism and Multiculturalism. “We are all Africans” is a mantra that can strongly influence the befuddled masses (in the unlikely event that they take an interest in what they are from a biological level).

If you have read the writings of Marie Cachet on Atala.fr you will know that today the Europeans are on average 99,7% Neanderthals and that the hybridization we have suffered has brought with it, amongst other things, the birth of art. One of the most ancient and beautiful artwork of our ancestors are the cave paintings of the Chauvet Cave (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chauvet_Cave), realized more than 30’000 years ago.

Some cave paintings of the Chauvet Cave:

These paintings were made to create a three-dimensional movement when observed in the light of a torch. In the Chauvet Cave also occurred an European initiation ritual of the utmost importance.

Today the Chauvet Cave is closed to the public but only one year ago a 1:1 replica has been achieved. What I desire to suggest you is to watch the beautiful film-documentary made by Werner Herzog and filmed inside the real cave:

I invite you to watch it, the anti-European entertainment industry will rarely have something better to offer if you want to learn something about your culture.

Find out who you are! Know yourselves! You are your ancestors, their memory lives in you!

Ave Europa!

Oh, I almost forgot…Christian art from the Middle Ages:
