The mystic’s fear

The mystic opposes the extremist, and is implicated within extremism. He speaks the language of the extremist, but offers a “superior”, more spiritual interpretation.

But that speech is attachment, nostalgia for the past life, final freakout of the collective clinging to the kleppot of history – as the spirit of extremism careers that collective body, suicidally, off the cliff’s edge, obliterating itself.

We, the verandah vanguard, welcome extremism in religion: it is the fire that will destroy the religion from within, once and for all.

Because we have an inkling of what will follow the religion. A brighter new way. Life, not death.

And the mystic will forget his opposition. There will be no mystic, no extremist.
