Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.

—Marshall McLuhan

 


In pursuant to The Theory of One which I sent you in early 2001, as well as letters relating to this matter that I sent to politicians, judges, doctors, physicists, business leaders and others—I would like to propose a public debate on Friday 28 March 2003 at two pm at the CBC in Calgary in which you would serve as moderator.  I have sent letters requesting the presence of the following ten individuals for participation in the proposed debate—Mr Weingarten, President and Vice-Chancellor, University of CalgaryChief Justice McLaughlin, Supreme Court of CanadaPrime Minister Jean ChrétienAlberta Premier Ralph KleinGovernor General ClarksonDr Naylor, Psychiatrist, Peter Lougheed HospitalDr Hicks, Physics Department Chair, University of CalgaryMr Kelly, Principal of Crescent Heights High SchoolBishop Zemp, Crescent Heights Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day SaintsMr Beaton, Calgary Police Chief.  I would ask that you mail or email me a schedule, an outline of the format and a list of the participants along with their profiles at least two weeks in advance.

 

I propose that the debate be recorded for television, and that it be ten twenty-minute rounds, with a ten-minute recess between rounds—bringing the total duration of the session to five hours.  I would debate each of the ten participants, and prior to debating me, each participant would not be allowed to view the prior rounds.  Should the CBC or any other network decide to broadcast the debate, I would ask that it be done so uncensored and unedited.  I would ask you to let me know at your earliest convenience by mail or email whether both you and the CBC agree to this important project.

 

Sincerely,

King Christopher

The University of Calgary is not a place one goes to learn to think well—it is a place one goes to learn how to pleasure the Man.  Aside from a few letters, a few good books and few good times, all I got out of my University of Calgary education was nausea ad nauseam.

In pursuant to the enclosed letter to Mr Mansbridge of the CBC, I challenge you to debate why the University of Calgary does not teach fundamentals in the spirit of the first university founded by Plato in 387 BC—and why the University of Calgary has not recognized my Theory of One and Unified Field Theory.  I have enclosed a mailing label to Mr Mansbridge and would ask that you send him your response to my proposal along with your profile or the profile of the person that will represent you in the event that you cannot or choose not to attend.

In pursuant to the enclosed letter to Mr Mansbridge of the CBC, I challenge you to debate why you have not made good on your claim—Knowledge Le Savoir—and why you failed to publicly recognize my Theory of One as I requested in my letter of 28 June 2002.  Specifically, in my letter to Chief Justice McLachlin on 28 September 2002 I claimed that I could prove with mathematical certainty that the God of the Jews and the God of the Arabs is exactly the same God.  I also challenge you to debate why supporting me in fostering the truth is not the first step towards lasting world peace.  I have enclosed a mailing label to Mr Mansbridge and would ask that you send him your response to my proposal along with your profile or the profile of the person that will represent you in the event that you cannot or choose not to attend.

Many anthropologists, sociologists and psychologists have used their expert knowledge to prove that man is free, purposeful and responsible. This escape route is slowly being closed as new evidence of the predictability of human behavior is discovered. Any personal exemption from complete determinism is being revoked as scientific analysis progresses—particularly when accounting for the behavior of the individual.

—B.F. Skinner —Skinner (1904-90) was the father of modern behaviorism

 


In pursuant to the enclosed letter to Mr Mansbridge of the CBC, I challenge you to debate why Canadian doctors employ the outwardly-focusing behavioralistic psychological model rather than the inwardly-focusing existential model which makes consciousness, and thus the soul, primordially important.  I was told recently that I have been diagnosed with schizophrenia—a term that comes from ancient Greece and means divided mind.  When we met on 18 October 2002 you told me that denying a higher truth and lying are not the same thing.  Let’s say we sat down for an hour and I was able to mathematically convince you of the higher truth that Planck’s constant and lightspeed are the same boundary of the spacetime continuum.  According to your assertion, you could deny the higher truth even though you knew it to be true in your mind.  In other words, your mind would be divided and you would thus be schizophrenic.  But how is denying a higher truth at the end of a conversation different than avoiding such a conversation altogether?  The answer is there is no difference—meaning that you, as a psychiatrist, are schizophrenic.  And more to the point, you make your living implying your schizophrenia on others.  I am accused of being schizophrenic because I refuse to let go of higher truths and thus my mind remains divided from mainstream, schizophrenic thinking—the very seeds of which you yourself have sewn.  Kind of funny how that works, isn’t it, Dr J?  I contend that all the world’s problems stem from the application of the behavioralistic psychological model which, according to its founders, Watson and Skinner, deny the existence of consciousness—thereby denying the existence of self-consciousness—which is the soul—which is also the steering mechanism.  In other words, all you have to do to solve all the world’s problems is admit that you bet on the wrong horse.  Are you man or mouse?  One squeak for man, two for mouse.  I have enclosed a mailing label to Mr Mansbridge and would ask that you send him your response to my proposal along with your profile or the profile of the person that will represent you in the event that you cannot or choose not to attend.

Modern man wants neither God nor Christ—for what he desires is simply the authority of the Church.  He wants the physical security of bread, the spiritual security of dogma, and the so-called proof of the existence of miracles.  To follow God irrespective of the consequences presents too great a risk.  The Church offers up a lighter burden.  It serves, selects and explains the truth, forgives sins and bestows upon man the happiness of children.  Yet the price is high.  Man must surrender his freedom of thought and, indeed, he willingly does so.  He no longer serves God as God demands of him, but only as the Church tells him so.  God’s mysteries and miracles are henceforth monopolized and administered by the Church.

—William Hubben

 


In pursuant to the enclosed letter to Mr Mansbridge of the CBC, I challenge you to debate why the Church has not recognized, as Sir James Jeans (1877-1946) said, that God is a mathematician.  I also challenge you to debate my assertion that the Church is misrepresenting God and Christ for profit.  I have enclosed a mailing label to Mr Mansbridge and would ask that you send him your response to my proposal along with your profile or the profile of the person that will represent you in the event that you cannot or choose not to attend.

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was the third president of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence.  He was one of the most brilliant individuals in history.  His interests were boundless and his accomplishments were great and varied.  He was a philosopher, educator, naturalist, politician, scientist, architect, inventor, pioneer in scientific farming, musician, writer and was the foremost spokesman for democracy of his day.  Jefferson swore his hostility to every form of tyranny over the mind of man.  During his lifetime he sought to develop a government that would best assure the freedom and well-being of the individual.

Philosophers up until now have only described the world.  The point is to change it.

Not ignorance but ignorance of ignorance is the death of knowledge.

The acquiesce of many voices is not a valid proof of truth.

Average goodness is no longer enough.

—Nicholas Berdyaev

 

History is the biography of great men.

My mind. My rules.

—Jennifer Lopez

 

Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.

—Marshall McLuhan

 

If the mental illness of the United States is megalomania—that of Canada is paranoid schizophrenia.

—Margaret Atwood

 

Never trust human reason at face value for it seeks to mask what it fears to confront—the most unpleasant truth of all.

—Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Something profoundly convulsive and disturbing suddenly becomes both visible and audible with indescribable definiteness and exactness—bringing on the overwhelming feeling that one is utterly out of hand.  Everything occurs without volition—as if by eruption of freedom, independence, power and divinity—thus giving rise to the most immediate, exact and intense form of expression.

—Fredrick Nietzsche

 

The maps produced by modern materialistic scientism leave all the questions that really matter unanswered; more than that—they deny the validity of the questions. The situation was desperate enough in my youth half a century ago; it is even worse now because the ever more rigorous application of the scientific method to all subjects and disciplines has destroyed even the last remnants of ancient wisdom—at least in the Western world. It is being loudly proclaimed in the name of scientific objectivity that values and meanings are nothing but defense mechanisms and reaction formations; that man is nothing but a complex biochemical mechanism powered by a combustion system which energizes computers with prodigious storage facilities for retaining encoded information.

—E.F. Schumacher

 

No simple, agreed-upon definition of consciousness exists. Attempts to define consciousness have tended to be merely tautological or descriptive—such as awareness, sensations, thoughts or feelings. In spite of this, the subject of consciousness has had a remarkable history and at one time was the primary subject matter of psychology, although has since suffered an almost complete and total downfall.

—Microsoft Encarta

 

Consciousness? Can you see it? Measure it? Pass it around? Then how is it different than something that does not exist at all?

—B.F. Skinner

 

There can be no other truth to take off from this—I think, therefore I exist—ie. the Cartesian cogito.  There we have the absolute truth of consciousness becoming aware of itself.  Every theory which takes man out of the moment in which he becomes aware of himself is, at its very beginning, a theory which confounds the truth, for outside the Cartesian cogito, all views are only probable, and a doctrine of probability which is not bound to a truth dissolves into thin air.  In order to describe the probable, you must have a firm hold on the true.  Therefore, before there can be any truth whatsoever, there must be an absolute truth; and this one is easily arrived at; it is on everyone’s doorstep; it is a matter of grasping it directly.

—Jean-Paul Sartre

 

Man has the power of life like the plants, the power of consciousness like the animals, and something more—the power of consciousness recoiling upon itself—which is the power of self-awareness. Man is not merely a conscious being, but a being capable of consciousness of his own consciousness—not merely a thinker, but a thinker able to watch and study his own thinking. This power of self-awareness opens up unlimited possibilities for purposeful learning, investigating, exploring and of formulating and accumulating knowledge.

—E.F. Schumacher

 

People ask for bread and are given stones.  They beg for advice on how to be saved and are told that salvation is an infantile neurosis.  They long for guidance on how to live responsibly and are told they are machines, like computers, without freewill and therefore without responsibility.

—E.F. Schumacher

 

If the government violates the rights of individuals, then the people have the right to get rid of the government.

—John Locke

 

The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth—and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man but to have only the law of nature for his rule.

—John Locke

 

Whosoever in authority exceeds the power given him by law, and makes use of the force he has under his command to compass that upon the subject which the law does not allow—may be opposed as any other man, who by force invades the right of another.

—John Locke

 

Men have called me mad, but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence—whether much that is glorious—whether all that is profound—does not spring from disease of thought—from moods of minds exalted at the expense of general intellect.

—Edgar Allan Poe

 

Everything that can possibly be painted has been painted, every brush-stroke that can possibly be laid on canvas has been laid on.  Then suddenly at the age of forty, I began painting myself and became fascinated.

—D.H. Lawrence

 

Our beliefs are based much more on custom and example than on any certain knowledge. People take age, number and loca­tion as criteria of justice. A law is reputed to be ancient, a religious creed is seen to be popular—such brute facts are reason enough to render them legitimate. And professions exploit the multitude’s susceptibility to costume for all it is worth—including our magistrates, who have shown themselves well aware of this secret. Their red robes, the ermine in which they swaddle themselves like furry cats, the law-courts where they sit in judgment, the fleurs de lys, all this august panoply is very necessary. If physicians did not have long gowns and mules, if learned doctors did not wear square caps and robes four times too large, they would never have deceived the world, which finds such an authentic display irresistible. And it is not only judges and doctors who are judged worthy of respect by the common people because of the way they appear—nobility and royalty do the same. The queen leaves her palace surrounded by guards, drums, officers and all the things which prompt automatic responses of respect.

—Blaise Pascal

Profile

Christopher Bek is a mathematician, actuary, philosopher, scientist and writer—and is a superior spreadsheet, database and riskmodeling craftsman. He has consulted to the top executives of one of the largest companies in Canada—and has made presentations relating to the philosophy and science of risk management in Houston and New York. Chris founded Risk Management Services in 1995 dedicated to helping executives develop scientific management practices that will allow organizations to properly serve the shareholders, the stakeholders and society in the community.  Socrates (470-399 BC) set the table for Plato (427-347) by radically insisting that we must first answer the question of what X is before we can say anything else about X.  Plato then founded philosophy by daring to ask what existence would be like outside the cave.  Chris founded Philosophymagazine on 1 January 2001 in support of those who have taken a less traveled road in the struggle towards daylight.
