Walt Whitman Monument Unveiled in Moscow
Poets will lead men's souls back to God - W. Whitman Passage to India
Oct., 15, 2009
The monument to the famous American poet Walt Whitman has been set up in the campus of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, near the First Humanities Building.
The unveiling ceremony was attended by the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov, Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov, and representatives of the official delegation of the USA, and administration of Russia and Moscow.
The monument to Walt Whitman is a return present to the Russian capital from Washington, D.C. The author of the sculpture is Alexander Burganov. Back in 2001 he created a monument to Alexander Pushkin, which was given over to the States as a gift from Moscow. The monument now stands in the campus of the George Washington University. And now Whitman is in Moscow.
Secretary Clinton said in her unveiling ceremony speech:
I agree with Minister Lavrov that just as Pushkin and Whitman reset poetry, we are resetting our relationship for the 21st century. And that relationship is not just between our two governments, but most importantly, it is between the Russians and American people. Whitman recognized that we have so much in common, and if I could, I just want to draw your attention to the quote that was chosen that is on the base of the sculpture. And here is what it says: “You Russians and we Americans, so far apart from each other, so seemingly different, and yet in ways that are most important, our countries are so alike.”
(The New York Times of Oct. 15 or 16 did not publish a report about this ceremony)
(IsraelNN.com) PM Ehud Olmert and Russian President Putin met privately for three hours in Moscow on Thursday evening. At the conclusion of the meeting, which had not been publicly announced prior to Olmert's abrupt departure for the Russian capital earlier that day, the Prime Minister's Office released a statement saying that the talks were “held in an open, serious and good atmosphere.” (...) In discussing the role of Russia in the Middle East, Putin reportedly made it clear that his country views Israel's security interests as a significant component of its regional policies. (Arutz Sheva 19 October, 07) A similar low-key visit was paid recently to Russia by the present Prime Minister of Israel B. Netanyahu,
I think that the Walt Whitman Monument unveiled in Moscow on Oct. 15, 2009 by Secretary of State H. Clinton attests, in the most profound way, to Russia's concern about Israel's security. The fact that Russia has chosen to commemorate Walt Whitman, practically forgotten and almost never mentioned or quoted in the U.S. mainstream media, as America's spokesman, to its population deserves to be explained in the context of the modern world with its indifference, or even hate to the Biblical heritage due to predominance of Science as a secular, surrogate religion. Contemplate this monument which will endure for centuries in the context of what happened to a monument of unreason commemorating Copernicus's Spaceship Earth:
Just three months after its unveiling, a million-dollar stone sculpture, intended to remind future generations of the Earth’s fragility, collapsed. “Spaceship Earth” lay in ruins at Kennesaw State University after falling to pieces. AP
The sculptor said, I’ve never seen a sculpture disintegrate like that. When you see the pattern how it fell apart, it was just like magic, it just disintegrated. (The New York Times Jan. 6, 2007). One could say, an Invisible Tornado of YHWH turned it into dust. One day Judge Goldstone will disappear like that.
To imply that Israel was created simply because of the Holocaust
is ridiculous and reveals ignorance on the subject.
W. Whitman's free verse with a cadence and parallelism based on the Bible betrays his life-long infatuation with the Book of Books which defined his views on many social phenomena that ran counter to the fashionable currents like spiritualism, for one thing. Poland's greatest poets of the same period like Mickiewicz, Slowacki or Norwid thought and wrote similarly. That's why I agree with him that “poets will lead men's souls back to God”, as he wrote in Passage to India”. Russia's recent history within the Soviet Commonwealth made it well aware of the fragility of all scientific theories, which were regarded by the Fathers of the Communist, scientific worldview as truths never to be proved false. The first warning signal came unexpectedly in 1987 when Halley's comet declining from all previous orbits over the Northern Hemisphere, appeared in the Southern Hemisphere. The confusion of the Soviet scientists is mirrored in an article published in the journal Astronomiya i Astrofizika (1989) whose authors argued that “the motions of Halley’s comet are chaotic” and that “the model of its motions is not determined!” In political terms it meant an earthquake. On Oct. 4, 1957 when the first sputnik was launched from the Soviet Union, the Soviet scientists assured that its speed and trajectory were calculated using Newton’s Laws, the same laws that Halley used to calculate the trajectory of his comet. The nauseating prostitution of Soviet scientists to the immoral aims of their state seemed to be overcome.. One recalls that F. Engels used to praise Copernicus as a giant of mankind. It's risky to base the lives of hundreds of millions of people on the scientific dogmas of such fallible and self-confident people. Read history and see for yourself how all those self-confident and arrogant Empires had fallen into dust and Israel is here again as a warning sign to all those who say 'There is no God'. Unappreciated but nevertheless helpful.
In my lecture on The Forgotten Astronomy of the book of Job delivered to the Polish Oriental Association in 1977 I read Walt Whitman's description of his vision of a nightly sky from Specimen Days with innumerable multitude of stars as big as ears of oats and he himself standing in the middle (together with the earth) and contemplating all that. Years earlier I had experienced a similar vision and I still vividly remember the same overwhelming enthrallment which the Biblical author expressed in the words: Heavens tell the Glory of God, or "Be still and know that I am God." I don't have this particular text right now but I have another magnificent poem by this simply a powerful and unusual poet entitled When I heard the learn’d astronomer:
When I heard the learn’d astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.
Let me remind here that one year after Walt Whitman was born, i.e. in 1820 Canon Giuseppe Settele, professor of astronomy in Rome and Washington, had written an elementary book in which the Copernican system was taken for granted. On the 16th of August, 1820, the Congregation of the Holy Office (Inquisition) decided that Settele might teach the Copernican system as established, and this decision was approved by the Pope. On the 5th of May, 1829, Thorwaldsen’s statue of Copernicus was unveiled in Warsaw. In the 1880s philosopher Nietzsche boasted: “god is dead; we have killed him with our science!” Curiously enough The Ecumenical Council of 1870 (Vatican Council I) anathematized Prof. G. Settele:
"Let him be ANATHEMA . . . who shall say that human Sciences ought to be pursued in such a spirit of freedom that one may be allowed to hold as true their assertions even when opposed to revealed doctrines." -- Ecumenical Council of 1870.
At the same time Professor Schoepfer, in his public lectures at Berlin, was demonstrating: a, that the earth is immovable; b, that the sun is but little bigger than it seems, and c, that Tycho-Brahe was perfectly right when he defended the Biblical geocentrism and Galileo was wrong when he attacked it. ("Ultimate Deductions of Science; The Earth Motionless." A lecture demonstrating that our globe does neither turn about its own axis nor around the sun; delivered in Berlin by Doctor Schoepfer. Seventh Edition.)
We can assume that the 'learn'd astronomer' of Whitman's poem was Copernicus himself, because in his dedicatory letter to Pope Paul III published as a preface to his book the heliocentrist of Frauenburg (Frombork) boasted that with the help of mathematics he proved the biblical geocentrism to be false. Not to Walt Whitman who stormed out in the middle of his lecture. Remembering the words of the Psalmist, “The stupid said in his heart there is no God.” (Heliocentrism is an atheist doctrine Blog4Brownback)
All those who, like Copernicus, would like to gag people like W. Whitman, because of their alleged ignorance of mathematics, are possibly unaware of B. Russel's verdict on that subject which says, “Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: it is only its mathematical properties that we can discover.” The Biblical Spirit animating the great poet did not fail him.
Let assume for the sake of argument that the 'learn'd astronomer' lecturing Walt Whitman on equations of heliocentric mathematic was A. Einstein himself, and he explains to the poet the nature of 'gravitational field':
“Just as in the case with the electric field produced by electromagnetic induction, the gravitational field has similarly only a relative existence. For if one considers an observer in free fall, e.g. From the roof of a house, there exist for him during his fall no gravitational field -at least in his immediate vicinity. For if the observer releases any objects, they will remain relative to him in a state of rest, or in a state of uniform motion, independent of their particular chemical or physical nature. (In this consideration one must naturally neglect air resistance.) The observer therefore is justified to consider his state as one of “rest”.
We all know that a man falling from a roof doesn't contemplate if he is in a state of uniform motion or a in a state of rest, because he is screaming from the top of his lungs. If we translate Einstein's lecture into new Age scientists' jargon-laden sound bites amounting to little more than what California Institute of Technology physicist and Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Man once described as “quantum flapdoodle” we would get something like this:
“The material world around us is nothing but possible movements of consciousness. All our perceptions of reality, every possible universe are equally “real” in our mind, because Heisenberg said atoms are not things but only tendencies. So leaping out of a 100-story building we may consciously choose the experience of passing safely through movements of consciousness to the ground tendencies i.e. Maya which is occasionally called ground. (Watch the film, What the #$*! Do We Know?!) Over three hundred people who jumped from the burning WTC disproved both Einstein and his New Agers.
It is well to remember that a great deal of modern cosmology, especially when its practitioners are trying to predict its destiny and retrodict its origin, is sheer mathematical manipulation and evolutionary philosophical imagination. ‘It ain’t necessarily so!" Philosophical imagination is not the same as poetical inspiration.
Einstein himself admitted, "When I examine myself and my methods of thought I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.” The word "fantasy" equates, of course, with such things as: "delusion, illusion, misconception, trick, fool’s paradise, self-deception, hallucination, false light, figment of the imagination, something unsubstantial, thin air, mockery", etc.
Do you believe, with Copernicus, that the sun is a god? If not, you cannot believe in heliocentrism.
Why? Here is Copernicus's paragraph:
“We conceive immobility to be nobler and more divine that mutability and instability, which latter is therefore more appropriate to the earth than to the universe. I add to this that it would seem quite absurd to attribute motion to that which contains and locates, rather than to that which is contained and located – namely, the earth.”
My question e-mailed to Science Times, a few years ago, if they believe with Copernicus and Galileo that the sun is a god is to be answered yet. Heisenberg is said to have illustrated the particle-wave duality of nature that is the basis of quantum theory by maintaining that the universe is not made of matter or energy, but MUSIC! That inspired the modern so-called Superstrings Theory. You may recall that Robert Fludd’s Musica Mundana (1624) presented the Universe in the shape of a gigantic monochord with the sun in the middle of its shaft.
In 1898 the Polish magazine Życie ( (Life, II, 44, p. 579) edited by the most creative Polish dramatist and painter S. Wyspianski published a drawing by F. Bilek presenting the pagan inspiration for Copernicus’ heliocentrism. This terrifying vision of the Pythagorean-Copernican heliolatry in which the living Earth (i.e. the goddess Gaia) orbits the personified Logos or the sun god Jesus prepared the Polish audience for the shocking portrait of the Polish society morally devastated by the Renaissance revival of the Hellenistic paganism, presented in Wyspianski’s most popular drama The Wedding (Wesele). In this play a straw man is a personification of the Pythagorean principle that the “world is music and creation a dance.” The sounds of the “Pythagorean Lyre” set the people into a trance like dance of sleepwalkers which makes them forgetful about the sad reality of the political enslavement by the three neighboring powers. Their dance was the only meaningful ritual around the altar of their new “Savior” who, as the Jesuits taught them, “stopped the sun and moved the earth.” F. Bilek’s unmasking drawing and Wyspiański’s drama were the answer to the statue of Copernicus unveiled in Warsaw in 1839 by the order of Pope. Ten years earlier Pope Pius VII decreed that Copernican system might be taught as truth established. Copernicus in the preface to his book invoked papal infallibility, which would silence all possible critics. Roma locuta causa finita, said father Settele in Washington.
In 2006 the Senate of the Warsaw University, defending John Paul II's rehabilitation of heliocentrism against Benedict's XVI's rehabilitation of creationism as expressed by him during his visit to Regensburg on September 12, 2006, (http://www.lifesite.net/ldn/2006/sep/06091202.html) issued a declaration entitled: “No Reasonable Scientist negates the theory of Evolution” (Oct. 19, 2006). So we may conclude that only the Polish Pope was a “reasonable scientists” but Benedict XVI a German is not. At the same time a bishop who expressed belief in evolution was selected by the Polish Episcopate as a new Archbishop of Poland, but soon was accused of collaboration with communist security service and his appointment was revoked. A year or so later, a Russian high ranking hierarch, rejected Darwinism in his interview for the German magazine Spiegel ONLINE and soon thereafter was elected a new Patriarch of Russia. Walt Whitman, so to say, will be helping him from his pedestal. No Polish scientist dared question his reasonableness. Without a US Missile Shield they are simply scared.
The God Delusion
What is the meaning of the expression “a reasonable scientist?” Well, the latest ad campaign touting New Yorkers “who are good without God” on posters in 12 subway stations is sponsored by the Coalition of Reason, which means that the people believing in God are irrational, and aloga like animals. A spokeswoman for this group said that they were inspired by President Obama's inaugural speech in which he said that “America is a nation of non-believers as well as believers.” Well, President Obama, in his relentless pressure on Israel, needs the help of rather non-believing Americans than believing ones. During the Cold War period when America faced the Communist, non-believing Superpower, the belief in God was advertised on the dollar bill. A Polish proverb says that when fear overcomes you, you seek God's help, but when the fear is gone so is God. Now, when Russia became religious America has declared war on God... (Metro, Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2009). The Bible says that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. We'll see who is irrational.
The Political Archeology of the W. Whitman Monument
During one of his meetings with M. Gorbachev President R. Reagan switched from seeking to persuade the Soviet leader of the value of religious tolerance to promoting a belief in God. Reagan did so by telling one of his trademark stories. According to the notes of their meeting:
The President said he had a letter from the widow of a young WWII soldier. He was lying in a shell hole at midnight, awaiting an order to attack.. He had never been a believer, because he had been told God did not exist (maybe at his school by his evolution teacher-rp) But as he looked up at the stars he voiced prayer hoping that, if he died in battle, God would accept him. That piece of paper was found on the body of a young Russian soldier who was killed in that battle. (James Mann, The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan. A History of the End of the Cold War. Viking. 2009, p. 295
I wonder, will President Medvedyev try to convert President B. Obama to a belief in God by conflating Whitman's vision of the stars with that of a dying Russian soldier?
You will better understand the political meaning of John Paul II's rehabilitation of Galileo in the context of the following quote from A. Koestler's The Sleepwalkers: The dials on the laboratory panels are turning into another version of the shadows in the cave. Our hypnotic enslavement to the numerical aspects of reality, (as described in Whitman's poem quoted above-rp), has dulled our perception of non-quantitative moral values ... Kepler's sun-spokes, Galileo's confidence tricks, and Descartes' pituitary soul, may have some sobering effect on the worshipers of the new Baal, lording it over the moral vacuum with his electronic brain.
The W. Whitman Monument, a Warning Sign to the New Agers
Alice Bailey, a major architect of Age of Aquarius and the author of fraudulent Ascendend Masters' Plan wrote in her usual anti-Semitic mood:
“Christ came to bring an end to the Jewish dispensation which should have climaxed and passed away as a religion with the astrological movement of the sun out of Aries into Pisces...They (the Jews) rejected that which was new and spiritual in the desert.” Obviously, in A. Bailey's mind the worshiping of the Golden Calf was “new and spiritual in the desert”. John Bull (aka Baal) stands for that which was “new and spiritual in the desert.” For the authors of Encyclopedia Britannica Moses is a murderer the opinion which informed Judge Golstone's Report branding the IDF as “an army of war criminals” comparable to the Nazi thugs.
Victor Shnirelman, a Russian culture anthropologist, who in a survey of modern Neopaganism in Russia, drew particular attention to “...groups that take an extremely negative view of multiculturalism, object to 'mixture' of kinds, support apartheid and the prohibition of immigration.”. He said that “...racist and antisemitic trends are explicit in the occult teachings of Alice Bailey , founder of the New Age movement and her followers, who wish to purge Christianity of its “Jewish inheritance” and reject the “Jewish Bible” as a prerequisite of the Age of Aquarius.
John Paul II reconquered America for this “hypnotic enslavement” in the hearts of the caves where “time-space gives birth to bats” or bat-men.
In the Pipes of Pan, a proposed Scholium to the Principia Mathematica of 1687 Newton rewrote the myth of Pythagoras claiming that the inverse-square law of gravitation had been known to the earliest sages. The same law had been discovered, Newton wrote, between a string's length and its tension for a given musical pitch, before it was applied to the heavens where it was observed by Shiva Nataraja, Apollo Musagetes and all other solar deities.
Newton's dilemma behind the inverse square law of gravitation is understandable in the context of the myth of Shiva. With drum and dance, he represents the world's perpetual unfolding or evolution. The drum in Hindu myth is an agency of cosmic creation, and dancing is one of the many aspects.
Whitman comments in his November Boughs (1888) regarding Shakespeare's historical plays are indirect attack on heliocentrism as the ideological foundation of feudalism. Whitman believed that only somebody belonging to that “ruthless and gigantic caste” could have written these plays:
Conceiv'd out of the fullest heat and pulse of European feudalism -personifying ill unparalleled ways the medieval aristocracy, its towering spirit of ruthless and gigantic caste, with its own peculiar air and arrogance (no mere imitation) -only one of the "wolfish earls" so plenteous in the plays themselves...”
Shakespeare, or whoever he was immediately embraced the fashionable doctrine of heliocentrism:
The glorious planet Sol
In noble eminence enthroned and spher’d
Amidst the other…
using it to proclaim the glory of the English monarchy, and not the glory of God:
The sun not only is the King of the sky
But he is like the King
And the King is like sun.
The correspondence between God, the Sun and the King is confirmed by the “healing power of the English King” derived from the “med’cinable eye of the Sol.” In A Christian Familiar Comfort John Norder compares the state to the heavens and Queen Elizabeth and her Council to the primum mobile or controlling sphere, within whose compass any other motion that of Ireland, and of the USA in particular must be contained. The evolutionary dogma was smuggled into the King James Version of the Bible, in order to enhance the divine status of the British monarchs according to the Aryan dogma of evolution: The worm of today is the God of tomorrow. (Swami Vivekananda)
In 1934 the “med’cinable eye of the Sol” (i.e. the sun god Baal) was put on the dollar bill. The Nazis had chosen the same symbol for their eugenic program of killing the Germans and the Jews “unfit” to live.
W. Whitman vs. Very “ Rational” Ch. Darwin
In 1874, W. Whitman was invited to write a poem about the Spiritualism movement, to which he responded, "It seems to me nearly altogether a poor, cheap, crude humbug."
Well, Sir William Crookes, Physicist, chemist and a President of Royal Society, claimed to have seen materialized, by scientific precipitation spirit forms, or spiritual bodies walking and talking during séances He invited the two secretaries of the Royal Society, Professor Stokes and Sharpey, to visit his home to witness the phenomena for themselves – an invitation which neither of them accepted.
The Ruthless Caste Inspiration for the Darwinian Natural Selection
Karma: Past lives which are lived wrongly bring about 'karma' which must be worked off without complaint, and no one should try to alleviate their own or another's suffering 'lest we interfere with the outworking of their karma and unbalance cosmic justice' (this has long been practiced in India, where sick and starving people 'of low caste' are left to die in the streets). Willim O. Judge taught extensively on this theme and commented on its application to the Jews. Because the Jews were sentenced by Cicero to eternal servitude. Being a slave in Rome meant that you had no right to defend yourself. The latest accusations of alleged war crime committed by the IDF during Gaza War prove that the enemies of Israel still think along the lines of this ancient Roman propaganda. Darwinists are no 'Good Samaritans.
On pages 149 and 150 in The Descent of Man Darwin says:
“With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination, we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed and the sick; we institute poor laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of everyone to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands who, for a weak constitution, would formerly have succumbed to smallpox (or swine flu). Thus the weak members of civilized society propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but, excepting in the race of man himself, hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.” Darwin was one of the richest men in Great Britain and he wrote justification for the inhuman practices of his own caste. He was tried with the Nazi war criminals in Nuremberg.
Big Bang theory also referred to as Modern “Genesis” retired the Biblical Genesis because the American social Darwinist and a New Ager John Fiske imparted to the enthusiastic audiences his conviction that the political genius of Aryan peoples was the hope of the world. The world without hospitals or medical care for poor people who will be dying like animals in forests. How prophetic was Whitman in his vision of ruthless and gigantic caste, with its own peculiar air and arrogance.
By December 1948, a distinguished contingent of Jewish scientists and intellectuals warned in The New York Times that those leading the effort to establish a Jewish state bear "the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party". Albert Einstein joined concerned Jews who cautioned Americans "not to support this latest manifestation of fascism. "The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Begin and his party, and of urging all concerned not to support this latest manifestation of fascism." Albert Einstein, The New York Times, 4 December 1948
This year, Texas schools have allowed the Bible to be taught once again in public schools.
