Do you understand anon that without differentiation there is no biology, no possibility of life, no ascension?
Everything is biology, let's be maximalists for a moment and treat everything as a biological system - nations, cultures, kinship, ideology - an extended phenotype so large it encompasses all activity on earth.
What is the defining feature of life?
Life is a strange equilibrium. Something neither fully detached, nor fully emersed in its environment. What do I mean?
Consider the cell. The cell only exists because of its membrane, that border which separates it from everything else. But it isn't closed, it can't be fully closed, rather it is semi-permeable.
A cell closed off to the world will whither and die. Unable to expell waste, unable to metabolise, it succumbs to entropy, internal disintegration and chaos.
Similarly a cell which is totally open to the world will create an equilibrium with its environment, obliteration shortly follows.
The manner in which life sustains itself is the partial discrimination of what and at what scale it allows materials to cross the cell membrane, without this selectivity there can be no cellular life.
Erwin Schrödinger asked the question in his 1994 book - "What Is Life"
"An organism's astonishing gift of concentrating a stream of order on itself and thus escaping the decay into atomic chaos – of drinking orderliness from a suitable environment – seems to be connected with the presence of the aperiodic solids"
We call this solid DNA today.
Schrödinger was concerned with how life apparently violates the laws of thermodynamics. Life becomes *more* organised, more differentiated, more complex. He called this tendency 'negentropy' - 'negative entropy'
Ultimately all higher life depends on applying this negentropy. Universities must selectively discriminate, national borders must selectively discriminate, friendships groups must selectively discriminate. To violate this law is to create a sickly equilibrium.
"Annihilate everything that exists!" shouts the militant Buddhist, despairing at the nature of existence.
"Homogenise everything that exists!" shouts the ideologue of entropy, infuriated that difference, hierarchy and inequality are features of the world.
This isn't a left vs right. This is a question of those who crave the return of the primordial soup and those who wish to rise above and stand aside, even momentarily, from the levelling force of nature.
Make no mistake, the death drive that inhabits these people shepherds them to be enveloped in a mush of nothing. In some cases to become a mush of nothing, to lose all muscle tone, all contour and form, all segmentation of the body.
Those who want open borders to everything, moving borer beetles, fungal diseases, invasive insects across the world, who wish to see the osmotic flow of people move along every gradient, they summon back the precambrian froth.
You may have heard of the Medea Hypothesis, that life is actually suicidal and wants to kill itself off. It's correct with one modification - certain kinds of life have this instinct, but not all.
You may think this undifferentiated mass is a kind of chthonic and fertile femininity, but it's ultimately sterile. Putting the world into a blender will destroy everything of value and neuter the rest.
So I say to you anon, notice this desire in others and in yourself, resist. You are a rope stretched between the yeast and overman.
