Into the Wild and the Prelapsarian Fallacy

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost one of the greats works of English canon. What’s one of the best works of Western civilization has ever produced? It’s one of the best things everyone has ever written ever. After all job, Britain had an audacious goal, a prequel to the Bible. And unlike George Lucas, he did not disappoint.

Paradise Lost starts out with the aftermath of an epic war between God and Satan. God wins but the devil is alive. Satan addresses his disciples.

All is not lost the unconquerable will. And the study of revenge, emotional hate, and courage, never to submit or yield, and what itself that is not to be overcome.  
The mind itself, it's its own place at the mind its own place and itself can make a hell of heaven, heaven and hell.

I told you this book was good.

Now we’ve established in chapter one, that people think in terms of stories that is the most information dense manner of communication. We also establish the mimetic nature of learning people learn by copying others, characters from stories.

And so these statements use an information theoretic sense, this is Milton’s attempt to explain good and evil. So instead of calling his book Beyond Good and Evil, and addressing this dichotomy, point by point, as this is the most efficient way to convey information, Nietzsche realise this eventually, which is why with most credit to be his magnum opus, those books are supposed to be is an epic poem.

And our interpretation of what Nietzsche or Milton wrote, is independent of what they meant to say. So the only common definition of reality therefore can only be what we agree, is reality, the formalisation of this process being the scientific method.

So to the extent that something is part of a culture is to what extent how many people agree that it is real. So the interpretation of Paradise Lost that I’m about to give is exactly what I think Milton was trying to say with his work.

Most overlay the concept of good and evil with God and Satan. So when Milton starts his book with a war, so war of good and evil, good defeats evil, but does not destroy it.

Most do not understand Milton’s cast Satan in a heroic light after all, he’s the bad guy, right? But not in his trying to show us his or the characteristic review, the source of

what does it mean that Satan says that the mind has its own place?
