The Encephalist Manifesto

‘Encephalon,’ applied to humans, usually refers to the brain and the spinal column.

Used in a novel context, encephalon (little ‘e’) refers not just to a brain, but to the central part of any organic colony which exercises control over the rest. Encephalon (big ‘E’) is used here to refer to the imagined “event” of encephalization through evolutionary processes. Hence, The Encephalon is an evolutionary event in which a colony’s encephalon distinguishes itself as such.

Cooperating protein bodies and enzymes encephalize with the development of the nucleus. Then these cells form colonies and later animals, which encephalize in the development of brains. Both the brain of an animal and the nucleus of a cell are encephalons. This recursive process of encephalization at increasing scales seems entirely unconscious, totally accidental, but perhaps it is not. That I am able to conceptualize Encephalism means this process may rise to consciousness in individual colony members and become an active project rather than an unconscious incident. Perhaps the widespread adoption of this idea would herald The Encephalon.

*Structure beyond our comprehension may exist and presuming it does not or that it may never be glimpsed is an arrogant modernism.
*The manifold qualitative meaning of the total mass of cultural relics is still presumably forever beyond humans, but not necessarily so entirely beyond an encephalon of a much greater scale.

“So what?”

Post-Structuralism is at least potentially invalid, if one is intellectually honest. This absolutely does not mean that we can or should close the discussion of humanities, or that the jostling web of interrelationships that constitute meaning will become fixed or static one day when someone rings a bell and claims The Encephalon has arrived.

Encephalism, in fact, simply opens the possibility that there is indeed a partially-discernible fractal structure to humanity, including all of its cultural relics. Within certain particular unimaginable limitations, the greater mass of manifold qualitative value of human culture may be grasped by an encephalon of a proper scale.

Again, this is not to say that such a structure is accessible to humans, but that we are able to theorize about the existence of The Encephalon suggests that in some measure we may one day gain a cursory access. That which can be recognized by The Encephalon may surely be relayed and mediated to humanity in a reduced form.

“So what?! I don’t see any of these crazy encephalon things spewing printouts telling me the meaning of life…”

Encephalism is a provable theory. The development of analytic systems, memory systems, and surveillance networks is metonymous to evolutionary stages presaging encephalization; what many refer to as the oncoming “singularity” is more accurately called The Encephalon. The shape it will take can only be imagined, but I personally doubt The Encephalon may pass without notice. Again, a rise in the idea of the encephalon may itself be the trigger for The Encephalon.

Promotion of encephalitic development subsumes the pleasure of Hedonists and the altruism of Utilitarians as a basic moral imperative which they both seemed to have been grasping at all along. That humans may control the form its collective encephalon assumes heightens the need for discussion of philosophy and culture even beyond that of the abyss posed by Post-Structuralism. That there is much we can never know is made doubly important if we face The Encephalon honestly; there is much it may never know.

This encephalon must be, as our creation, some reflection of us. Its ability to cooperate with other globally-scaled intelligences and contribute to further encephalization, this time perhaps on a galactic scale, cannot be understated for those who believe the pursuit of meaning is a worthwhile endeavor. Only the galactic encephalon might understand the social interactions and cultural artifacts of its constituent global encephalons.

Should our creation, the encephalon of Earth, attempt to virulently and petulantly spread itself or isolate like a hermit, the consequences could be disastrous.

That mere humans may collectively determine the character and qualities of The Encephalon through our various cultural practices gives the Encephalist a new vantage from which to criticize culture.

“Rape Farms” harvest natural birth control chemical

Jerotonin is now on sale at pharmacies across the nation.

The Marriage and Family Legacy Fund, one of many anti-gay groups recently under fire for its association with Chick-Fil-A, has allegedly funded offshore research into so-called “natural” birth control. By subjecting women to legitimate rape and “milking” them for the resultant fluids, scientists have harvested and isolated “jerotonin,” a chemical touted by Representative Akin for its bullet-proof efficacy in preventing unwanted births. It has just now hit drug stores, where it is being sold over the counter.

Jerotonin advocates claim that use of this chemical for birth control is morally superior to “unnatural” and dangerous approaches which often leave women barren. A spokesperson for the group said, “these women are raped forcibly in a controlled and safe environment. They are selected for the experiment specifically for their deep-seated fear of rape, otherwise the jerotonin would not be produced. Before undergoing the ‘milking,’ the women sign a waiver and are paid handsomely. In the territories where this procedure takes place, it is completely legal and therefore ethical.”

Young christian women, especially, have eagerly bought up these jerotonin supplements despite the exorbitant price and have expressed delight that there is a spiritually sound form of birth control finally available on the market.

Currently, there are 19 states in which women who claim their babies resulted from legitimate rape can deny the fathers custody rights. A representative for Fatherhood Under Fire reported, “In some backwards parts of the country, father’s [sic] are refused custody simply because they’ve been convicted of impossible rapes. The scientific proof of jerotonin clashes with this unfair legislation, because the existence of a child implies the mother was not raped. Thankfully, 31 states support the right of a man to nurture his rightful child.”

Niggas wanna stick me like fly paper.

Remember them niggas tryna put me down at the Macy’s department store? Shit niggas think a nigga be smokin cuz a nigga be jokin bout sum rolexes, when some white ass rosy colored nigga from texas come pokin his fuckin nose in my breakfast of pills, zanies and bars, fuckin racists when they used to perplex us.

Damn. Niggas wanna stick me for my paper. Damn. Niggas wanna stick me for my paper.

When I used to buy drugs from the Kroger, used to buy drugs from the happy white gentlemen and their videogames, and their blacklights and bong hits of weed with some name like white widow and kush, good god, those weren’t the days. Smoking pot in a driveway, in a car, in the dark, hotboxing to Notorious, Bone Thugz, drinking a high life, living like a low life, dreaming about the day one might finally start, as it came to an end.

I approached an apartment complex on the outskirts of Richmond, by the Sheetz, where a gang of thugs waited to sell myself and my black friends an ounce or two of weed. “The white boy can’t come in,” a gold plated mouth said to my friends as we entered the room, where guns were displayed on a table. The air reeked of medical-smelling opium. I was grateful for that. Peace, I thought.

Waiting in the car, I never could have imagined someone had made his nest in the backseat as I was being thrown out of a drug den. I never felt the tiny itch of his razor blade as it traced my throat, while an unseen hand rifled instinctively through my pockets.

The impossiblity of rape pregnancy

Todd Akin explains rape
“I date raped your mother, but she wanted it. That’s the only explanation for our marriage and your existence.”

When a woman is raped forcibly, she secretes a previously unknown chemical called jerotonin which makes fertilization impossible. Young women who are coerced or tricked into sex also secrete jerotonin in post-coitus shame. The possibility of being impregnated forcibly is about the same as being abducted by aliens. But why do so many young women who believe they’ve been raped wind up pregnant? Either they wanted to be raped or they are lying. Rape fantasies are among the most common fantasies of women. It is quite common for them to doll themselves up and walk in dangerous parts of the city at night, hoping beyond hope that they are violated by a stranger and made pregnant.

Now that we have sufficiently scientifically established the truth that abortion is completely unnecessary for all victims of rape, it will no longer be necessary to castrate all men as every feminist dreams. There is no way for a woman to be unwillingly impregnated, and we can actually forgive all rapists for acting under completely understandable physiological and cultural stresses which most women gladly welcome. However, there is still a loophole for would-be “pregnancy rapists,” or rapists who merely want to impregnate women. By perforating a condom, a “pregnancy rapist” can put a woman in a willing mood for coitus, and unbeknownst to her, impregnate her in this final remaining state of reproductive vulnerability. By welcoming “safe” sex, a woman leaves herself open to unwanted stealth pregnancy and the “ethical” need for an abortion. We all know that abortion can never be an ethical act–this is an axiom–so we must rationalize and equivocate and further restrict reproductive freedoms of women in the name of liberty. We must never allow the use of condoms and other prophylactics. These unnatural technologies present the possibility of a nonconsensual impregnation during consensual sex, something that should not exist in the first place.
