The Teachings, part 2
Our God is the God your god would worship if your god were real.
by H. Millard
WELCOME to The Teachings of Arman and thank you for coming here.
The Teachings present a peaceful and meaningful way of life for those who truly understand, and this way of life puts followers in tune with the ways of existence and shows them that their lives are important and have purpose and shows the way to constant personal improvement and evolution.
The most important thing to understand immediately is that The Teachings are based on revelations and inspiration but are seconded by Nature, true science, reason, and the knowledge that evolution is real — and that, as a result, different types of living things are different from other types of living things and that we are selected for a certain True Path as a result of our particular line of evolution, but that we must intentionally and knowingly take the True Path.
The basic concept for us as living organisms is this: DNA and genes matter.
Different types of humans have different combinations of the components of DNA and genes. Humans are not all alike, and the major races of humans are really, at a minimum, subspecies — and were it not for the fact that the different races can still interbreed, we would be called separate species.
Nature is a frugal and tireless engineer of life, and never stops tinkering with life — and constantly makes changes in life, made changes in fact from the time that first molecule of DNA came into existence from so-called non-living minerals and created the living minerals that life is. The differences in life should not be ignored, and this also applies to different types of humans. We often say “race is to human as breed is to dog as variety is to rose” to indicate something of the way things are and must be.
Some of the the most devout and religiously oriented among us may believe that we are selected by the First Cause. Those of us who are more secular may simply believe that we are the product of natural selection. It doesn’t matter which you believe. Both are equal and welcome, and this is so because true religion and true science are never in conflict. To be specific: It is the DNA code that contains the life force that is most important in all life that we are aware of (with the exception of certain viruses) and this DNA code makes each type of life what it is and gives each type of life abilities that are unique to each type of life and different from other types of life, even different from closely related types of life.
The Teachings are not for everyone because not everyone is the same, and this system relies heavily on the particular DNA code that makes White people, White people. Arman, who we often call The Teacher, teaches that the reason many religions and religious-like systems don’t work is because they have false ideas about the ways of existence and Nature — and in relation to humans, they try to shove all humans into a one-size-fits-all model, sometimes out of simple ignorance — and sometimes out of prejudicial thinking about the nature of life and evolution that causes them to deny the reality of differences. Some of these misguided people think that they are being “nice” or “kind” by claiming all humans are the same. The reality, however, is that they are being just the opposite and they are denying the uniqueness of humans.
We do not claim any superiority of our kind of human over other kinds. We simply say that we are different and that this is the way evolution has worked and we believe that all human kinds must be allowed to follow their own evolutionary trajectories without being absorbed or blended away.
You say you’re a White Atheist so you don’t know if you belong here? You do belong here and you are welcome here. In your two word self-identification you said that you are White. That’s the most important thing. You say you don’t believe in God. That’s okay. You probably believe in science and in Nature. Well, we also believe in science and Nature. You don’t like the word God? Yeah, some of us have a problem with it also. Just call it Nature. We also believe in cosmic evolution and organic evolution, so if you believe in these also we think you’re on the right track because these things are intertwined with our belief system. The Teacher says we should all be skeptical, that’s why we have brains. There is plenty of room left in this system for skeptics to still take the True Path in a completely secular way with no reference to a divinity. Why? Because living right is more important than actual and particular beliefs in this system.
The Teachings of Arman are pretty common sense. There are only two things we can think of in the Teachings that might give pause to skeptics. The first is that Arman says he had an experience with a bright light and some singing from a source he didn’t see. And, the second is that Arman says he receives revelations. Well, we weren’t there so we don’t know about the light and the singing so it doesn’t matter to us. Maybe it was just his imagination, maybe it was more. We don’t care. And, the revelations? The way he explains them is that they seem to come to him in his mind. Who among us doesn’t get thoughts in our minds? But, here’s the thing. We believe that the substantive things that Arman teaches are completely in accord with Nature and science and that we can use our reason to prove or disprove them. Well, to be precise, a few of the things he teaches might be put in the category of hypotheses in that they may not be totally proven yet. We’re thinking here about his Teachings that living organisms may be able to pick up the essences of other living and non-living things. Arman uses various insects and plants that mimic other insects and plants as examples of what he says adds to natural selection.
So, to the point, what are The Teachings about?
The Teacher says that what he teaches is that your purpose in your ordinary day to day life is to be happy and to have a sense of well being and a feeling that all is right and that you are where you should be and are doing what you should do and that you are a good and decent person who is a part of a unique and distinct people — and that you are a contributing part of cosmic evolution and the ways of existence that are larger than any of us.
And, the Teacher says this can stand alone with no belief in a god or gods or anything supernatural. It is enough to believe in what is demonstrably real: Nature, or as we say in a more inclusive definition: the ways of existence (which are the ways of Nature and all natural laws).
Or, as one can see from reading on, one can integrate this purpose — now consciously and directly stated — with the rest of the Teachings.
It is important to live consciously and to seek one’s personal happiness no matter how one chooses to do so as long as one does no harm to oneself or others. And, if you are like many of us, you may want to go deeper into the so-called “human condition,” and as you do so, you will find this leads to even deeper areas of the ways of existence, and the why and how of existence, and your personal place in existence.
The Teacher says that each of us must individually take personal responsibility for our advancement. No one can do it for us. Each person must take the effort. One must develop self-reliance, self-discipline and learn that your destiny is up to you individually and personally. There is no crowd to hide behind and you shouldn’t try to find one. Stand on your own, knowing that you are a good and decent person and that you have a right to believe and live as you alone choose, so long as you do no harm to others. This is your natural right by Nature. And, you also have the right to spread your beliefs to others if you so choose.
To the most pious and devout, this system is everything in their lives and they live their beliefs every minute of every day. To others, it is just a common sense and secular way of living; living intentionally and consciously with constant personal improvement in mind — and trying to be a good person doing no evil.
Right at the start it is important to emphasize again and understand that Nature doesn’t evolve sameness, but constantly causes organisms to diverge and separate. This is why you’ll often read of new species of various organisms being found. How did all these new species hide from us for so long? The answer: Many of them truly are new. They have diverged from earlier species of their general type. And, with this in mind, the Teacher says that we’ll never end counting species, because there will always be new ones popping up.
Now, the above is important to our ways because the Teacher teaches that we White humans are diverging from the rest of humanity — we are a different kind and our evolutionary trajectory, if we consciously stay on it by living righteous and just lives in accordance with the Teachings, is to become an even newer kind. This is Nature’s highest way for us. However, the Teacher says that there are forces that are harmful to us and which act to blend us back in with the rest of humanity, and cause us to not evolve and diverge along a separate path to the full specieshood which is one of our goals. We believe in rapid evolution and rapid speciation.
How does this relate to finding personal happiness for you? The Teacher says that being who and what you were born to be — your genetically determined true self — within our unique DNA code is important to your happiness. We must be as we were born to be. We must not try to deny our uniqueness and our “differentness,” but go with the flow of evolution that has led to us being the unique people that we are now, joined by a DNA code that makes us one distinct people, but with individual differences. The Teacher says that, like snowflakes, we are all different in minor details but we are all still snowflakes and are recognizable as snowflakes.
To be truly and deeply happy — to feel comfortable, to feel a warm contentment, and to have a feeling of just-rightness, without excessive stress and unhappiness, we must first be genetically happy. That is, we must consciously connect with our genetic essence that lies at the core of our beings. We must not try to deny it and we must not try to be like other types of humans. That would be trying to be something that we are not.
A swan trying to be a duck will always be unhappy — and a duck trying to be a swan will also always be unhappy. DNA codes in living organisms are important. Do not deny them.
We must be ourselves. We must be authentic. And, the Teachings help us understand exactly what that means and what is actually part of our essence — and what isn’t but which is often layered on over our authentic selves by religious and social ideas that may actually be harmful to our purpose in life and would therefore make us unhappy.
This genetic link to our happiness goes against the current orthodoxy, but it is real. Do not try to deny it. Only we can take the path that is opened by our DNA code. And we can go no other way without losing everything. We sometimes refer to the DNA code as the “essence” or as the “right parts.” It is a physical part of us. It contains the template or blueprint or recipe that made us. You can use any of these terms or similar ones. The point is the same. We begin with our DNA code. This code is evidenced by our physical characteristics, our emotional characteristics, and our spiritual characteristics that make us the unique people we are. Of course, our DNA code, if we could go even further back behind it, would take us to the place where non-matter turns into matter — which some might call the realm of the spirit, but which is really where the forces and energies of existence evolve into matter, including the matter that makes up our DNA. For most purposes, we start most of our practical thinking with the physical DNA code that is manifested in the physical elements of DNA.
For some of us — call us True Believers, if you wish — but not all of us, The Teachings constitute the deeply held religious beliefs of those of us who follow them as intended. We believe that all of our Teachings, concepts, words, symbols, rites, rituals, and ways are absolutely essential to this faith and must be used by True Believers. We believe all of these things have been revealed to Arman who is known to us as The Teacher and that we must follow them as intended. But, we also say that you should use your intelligence, your observations, and your reason to find your own way and those who do not believe in the more deeply held religious views of the True Believers, but who believe in the ways of existence as can be understood from Nature and science are just as welcome. Our idea of a creator, is not of some human-like being, but rather “that which is behind it all.” A something that caused and maintains existence and which is evolving ever outward to bring somethingness to nothingness. You might just prefer to call this Nature or the natural workings of the Universe. And that’s absolutely okay by us. We often think along those same lines ourselves.
The Teachings reveal the ways of existence and they mainly relate to our kind of humans — non-Jewish White people of European descent, either in Europe or in the White diaspora. The single word to describe who we are — when it is stripped of various other definitions — is “Aryan.” And, to be clear, we define an Aryan as a non-Jewish White person, born of a White mother and a White father, and therefore of European descent or ancestry.
In existence there are many paths. This is our path. Ours alone. No others can take it because no others have our DNA code. White people are White people, and non-White people are non-White people, and all are as they are because of their particular and unique DNA codes. Our White DNA code is one with us and makes us what we are. Our path is opened only by our particular DNA code. Non-Whites do not have our DNA code, and can never have it.
