There are strengths and weaknesses within human nature.The strength can be called the higher self and the weakness can be called the lower self.The higher self is expressed by Naturalism and the lowly self is expressed by mysticism.Naturalism is the expression of human potency whereas, mysticism is the expression of human impotence.Man is an amalgamation of the higher self and the lower self.where the higher self aided by reason and sensibility ponders on the construction of nature; while the lower self aided by whim and zanity ponders on the destruction of nature.
When we observe our environment and all manifestations nothing becomes more vividly evident than the sovergnity of nature and her laws which are responsible for ALL operations on the ground and in space.The study and investigation of the these operations will give us an insight into the workings of Nature and as to how to manipulate the operations in our favor giving birth to technology.
The technology brought forth by these inquiries enable man to cure himself from pestilence; enable him to cook his pabulum; build himself spaceships; build himself skyscrappers; build airplanes to fly over oceans; build telecommunication networks to communicate with his loved ones; invent drugs to acquire immortality; and so forth basically with technology the possiblities of human achievements are LIMITLESS.

Technology is the child of a curious rational mind and a tool acquired by the industrious, diligent observation of nature.Eventhough, naturalism is the self-evident and demonstrated truth we humanbeings seem to have a natural craving for spiritualism; I don’t really understand this predicament.where is this emotional need for spiritualism emanating from ? Is it emanating from the lower nihilistic weak self within human nature which is destructive in character of all forms of salubrity ??? I tend to believe so.
I believe spiritualism is the expression of the lower self, human impotence or weakness and hopelessness whereas, naturalism is the expression of the higher self ,human potency or capability and hopefulness.
These two conflicting opponents were,are and probably will create tumult within the individual and on the ground throughout human history.where spiritualism trys to drag every man on earth kicking and screaming to a masochistic,nihilistic death cult called martyrdom.Incontrast, naturalism call’s on man to a salubrious, naturalistic longevity called masterdom.
Irreason,insensibility,spirituality,mysticism,idealism,pugnacity,the digestive system,the reproductive system are some of the many other entities which represent the lower beastial self. whereas,reason,sensibilty,naturalism,materialism,realism and civility are some of the many representatives of the higher cerebral self.The Transhumanist movement as a bold scientific movement really needs to be applauded and encouraged for its attempt to augment human capabilities and the representatives of the higher self in quantity and quality.They need to be funded and supported in their endeavor to liberate man from his lower self.
Spiritualists pride themselves or must i say fool themselves as if they have discovered another dimension; but in reality the only dimension one can discover beyond the dimension of reality is the dimension of delusion.If the universe was made up  of ‘spirits’ as they propose they would have provided the world with ALL solutions to all the issues man is facing on the ground in an ideal manner from diseases to climate change just by invoking ‘spirits’ but unfortunately, that is not the case the natural dimension is made up of known natural facts and unknown natural facts.Spiritualists hold on to the ‘unknown’ or yet unexplainable segment of the natural world and lose themselves in a deviant,speculative,derisive, theories of ‘immateriality’.Their disordered and sluggish minds would not allow them to venture further in fortitude in the investigation and comprehension of the unknown segment of the natural world.
Infact spiritualists instead of standing in assistance to sedulous naturalists in their endeavor in making sense of reality they become derisive,and vulgar towards the naturalist,naturalism and the natural world. Asking questions like is an atom conscious ? did it invent itself ? Are you a hylozoist ??? and so forth.First of all we can already observe matter as a live entity with properties of it’s own authoring manifestations in the observable world.If you place half a beaker of H2SO4 out in the open, it starts to absorb water vapor from the air and might even overflow; if you place iron fragments next to a magnet they start to move; if you store picric acid dry carelessly rather than in a wet container you are putting your life in danger because picric acid is sensitive to shock and vibrations; if you mix nitric acid with water heat will be produced; if you inhale enough ammounts of carbonmonoxide you WILL die; if you are exposed to chloroform of 20-30 mg % you will lose consciousness [1] and other many examples can be given which means that we possess a demonstratable evidence that matter is alive.Hence,according to the foundation of Amystology which is ebeism it will be sensible for me to call myself a hylozoist because of the evidence provided.But another sequential question might arise which is does matter have a mind ??? This I DO NOT KNOW because i do not have evidence.
Spiritualism is the product of indolence,ignorance and confusion biased with self interest. If we had trusted the spiritualists humanity will be living under the blanket of darkness enslaved to mere speculative theories like geocentrism.Naturalism has proved itself over and over again.Its objective methods have overrun and out won subjective nonsenses.It’s rational approach have solved so much metaphysical issues than the ‘intuitive’ floundering and confoundment of spiritualists.
How can we designate the unknown segment of the natural world as a ‘spirit’ without even knowing what it is in the first place ??? the unknown natural world is still unknown so how can it be a spirit ??? what if it is some sort of natural event ??? how can a material mind KNOW what an ‘immaterial’ spirit is in the first place ??? how can an immaterial entity ever enter the human mind ??? where naturally the eyes are designed for photons; the ears for sound waves; the cutaneous sensory nerves for texture; the nose for odor molecules; the tongue for taste molecules ??? A spirit is not a photon, a disturbed particle in motion,a texture, an odor molecule, or a taste molecule.So how is it possible to understand a spirit ??? Is it ever possible that the immaterial can have a concomitance with the material ??? Absolutely NOT immateriality and materialism;spirituality and naturalism are absolutely incompatible.Immateriality needs to be cancel out inorder to make sense.
Nowadays, the new frontier for the perplexed spiritualists is the consciousness they propose that the consciousness is ‘immaterial’.Well,then we must ask a very interesting question if the consciousness is ‘immaterial’ why do we possess senses which are material ??? we have said earlier that immaterial entities and material entities are UNRELATABLE, INCOMPATIBLE.If this is the case then material senses cannot be in concomitance with an ‘immaterial’ consciousness but with a material consciousness.Hence, i wouldn’t be further from the truth based on ebeism if i state that the consciousness itself is material attested by the effects of drugs on the human mind like LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide ),amphetamines,alcohol,anaesthesia,anti-psychotics,anti-depressants, and so on.
We should never fall victim to the magic words of spiritualist like ‘buts’ and ‘ifs’ as Baron puts it but strive to maintain a sharp rational mind all the time inorder to refute ideas emanting from disordered consciousnesses.
Finally,naturalism needs to be funded and supported inorder for it to continue providing us the answer and solutions that it is currently providing and save us from the dangerous and destructive heresy of spiritualism.It is the idealists,mystics and spiritualists who are commiting blasphemy against nature,reality and truth with their arrogant attitude of resisting evidence and a perpetual zeal of sensationalism.Just like the great naturalist Darwin says in his book “Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who positively assert that this and that problem will never be solved by science.” [2]
