The salvator mundi speaks

I am often asked, out of the blue, ‘who do you think you’re so special?’ A strange question, because I have never said ‘I am special’. So let me confess to my speciality, and let me root this confession in the generality of my mission: to save the world from the coming apocalypse. Let me tell you how I’m going to do that.

‘Salvator Mundi’ by Leonardo da Vinci.

I’m going to undertake a long research project in Sociology, to hone my skills as a social scientist, and student of this social world we all (9 billion and counting) live in.

I’m going to release a debut album called Born which will speak to the world.

I’m going to bridge from academia to politics through music. Academia is how I speak to the elites. Music is how I speak to the people. Politics is about transforming the world to allow the gap between elite and people to be bridged, dissolving the former in the waters of the latter. This blog is the beginning of that mission.

I have come to save humanity from three interlocking cataclysms:

1. The rise of China,

2. Climate change, and

3. Capitalism.

I have come to tame each of these pressures with my own power, the power of philosophy, and the power of the people. My own power is an artistic/political mediation between these extremes. I am the greatest musician of all time. I have also come to solve philosophical problems and political quandaries. I have come to realise the development of music up to this point, and culminate the long history of history and ideas. I have come to save humanity from the chaos by developing the human powers within me, as a way of showing how we can all use the power in us all to transform the world to meet our needs, as human beings.

I have come to end dehumanisation, the repression of human potential. I have come to unleash the potential in all of us. I was entrusted with the task of giving power to you — power to YOU.

Will you take it?

Will you let me help you take it?

Will you give me the power to give power to you?

Shall we begin?

  1. Dear Edmund Wilson,

    Having studied and worked in the social science department (sociology, anthropology, archaeology and criminology) plus other departments and faculties, and having worked on four academic theses, I can understand your sentiments and aspirations.

    Truth, decency and morality have become martyred in the post-truth era and the age of misinformation. In any case, the best and most dedicated amongst the likes of us are also inveterate teachers of everlasting, transcendental wisdom to save humans from themselves, their self-interests and their destructive ways. I often even have to coin new words to do so. The latest examples are my three neologisms “Misquotation Pandemic“, “Disinformation Polemic” and “Viral Falsity“, as discussed in my very extensive and analytical post entitled “💬 Misquotation Pandemic and Disinformation Polemic: 🧠 Mind Pollution by Viral Falsity 🦠“, which you can easily locate from the Home page of my blog.

    Without proper education, the overall situation and trajectory of democracy and humanity seem to be rather bleak, and even science and politics can provide little comfort in reducing the severity and frequency of some of those outstanding issues, for there are two major Achilles’ heels: Viral Falsity and Paleolithic Emotions. In addition, my own multidisciplinary perspective proposes that four of the most insidious and corrosive conditions have exacerbated these issues dramatically:

    (1) The prevailing anti-intellectualism
    (2) The cult of anti-expertise sentiment
    (3) The politicization of science
    (4) The prevalent manifestation of populism

    I would like to wish you all the best in your intellectual and academic endeavours, including the completion of your PhD in Sociology. You have certainly been very prolific in publishing excellent blog posts.

    Last but not the least, I am answering affirmatively to all of your four questions that you raised at the end of your current post.

    Yours sincerely,
    SoundEagle
