Christ Church 2013 🎬 #SecretSocieties

In 2013 Oxford University hosted the EVENT to bring forth the Uni-verse. One WORD Order. A singularity of planning equal to none. “These people are stupid” Q The 17th letter – The Zero chiefs say “The nothing is everything”. Life resulted as the nothing vibrated (tone, ohm, verse). The nothing – a zero with a variation. The Sacred HQQP. The Q is 4 Quiet. Untraceable = Untransmittble.

Q – The Dark Web

Apr 25, 2014 · It’s called Alice Day, named after Alice Liddell and “Alice In Wonderland”, originally Pedophile Pride .. Q is queer, different, Quirky. The LGBTQ transmuted the Q to Questioning. Interesting timing as ‘they’ (see below: names, titles, specialisms) came face-2-face with reality. “There are no secrets” – the Guardians. Remember the warnings given buried classified documents all leaked. The “We oppose deception” shown to #WeThePeople by the crop circle team – silenced. As above so below. The network at the top of the pyramid has 4 sides – the living, 8 edges connect those 4 sides. The medicine star. When the Secret Societies gathered together for their event – timing was essential. All of the death, destruction, neglect and failure had their iP signatures. For millennia they relied on symbols, handshakes, dialects because they are NOT telepathic. If they were telepathic why would they need remote viewing research? They needed those us whose connection to the source is unbroken or restored via NDE. The Outbounders. NDE research like so many other types of research had a variety of problems to resolve. When pursuit of knowledge includes zero concern for life, liberty and sanctity then the pursuit has zero value. We are not amused. Back-up plan: the young hackers & gamers: The cloud cannot break the fall. #BuildTheWall and crime will fall. #WWG1WGA The game of thrones has been reduced to a game of musical chairs. “As it was in the eginning…”

The Dean:

What is a university? It was Cardinal John Henry Newman who gave
lectures in 1851 on ‘The Idea of a University’. He had been sent out to
Ireland to found a new Roman Catholic university in Dublin, so he did
some thinking on what it was that he was founding. The lectures set
off a debate which is still relevant today, although I doubt whether
people are discussing the subject much.
Newman saw a University as a gathering of people, helping each
other with the pursuit of knowledge. Classicists will be pleased to hear
that he quotes Cicero who said: ‘we are all of us drawn to the pursuit of
Knowledge; in which to excel we consider excellent, whereas to mistake,
to err, to be ignorant, to be deceived, is both an evil and a disgrace.’
(Newman’s Discourse 5, section 3) It is worth considering points from
that quotation, especially the last consequence to which Cicero refers as
stemming from a lack of knowledge: to be deceived. Newman makes
an important distinction: the university is a place not of instruction, but
rather of education. In other words, it is a place where you acquire
knowledge, knowledge being a way of thinking, a kind of habit:
something worth having for what it is, much more than for what it does
for you. You should then be able to tell the difference between good
argument and bad, which is a skill for life. And you might even avoid
being conned.
Newman explored what he considered to be the purpose of
education. He came to a conclusion which may not have been
controversial at the time, but is today. In his view, a university is a
place where you may gain wisdom; you improve your turn of mind or
intellect, as opposed to learning a trade. You learn about ideas and the
relationship between them, so that you can become a person who
functions easily in public and who is respected for the learning that you
have. Why is this controversial? Because many people have a much
more pragmatic view of education, namely that it should contribute
directly to a more prosperous society and lead in a straight line to jobs
which aid material progress. They would criticize Newman for trying
to divert people from the main task which is ultimately economic.
Another version of that objection might be that Newman is
surreptitiously introducing a theological agenda, in other words that he
is wishing education to divert students’ attention to matters of
transcendent significance and away from apparently more worldly
concerns. That point has some weight, in the sense that the origin of
Newman’s thinking was in a view of the world in which ultimate truths
stem from God. If his line of argument, however, leads to interesting
conclusions that source should not be a reason for dismissing them, just
as it is not a reason, for example, for rejecting the belief that there is a
duty to care for the poor. What is more, much of the origin of formal
education has been in people’s curiosity about God’s creation, natural
and human: wanting to know more about God’s world and to share
that knowledge with others.
A more trite criticism of Newmnan would come from the routine
charge of elitism: people with money can afford dalliance with
knowledge, whereas others do not have the time or resources. There is
no evidence that Newman thought in that way, although of course he
was a man of his time and his main experience was of Oxford. He
seems merely to have wanted those with the ability to be enabled to
study. I can see no reason why he would have objected either to ‘needs-
blind’ admissions nor to the access agenda of today.
It is hard to tell what prospective students, together with their
parents and teachers, are looking for. Perhaps the idea is good
university with a course which fires their imagination, with some
(maybe especially parents) seeing the aim as well-paid jobs in quick
As far as can be told, that latter view is also predominant in the
Government. The powers that be are certainly not quoting Newman.
Rather they want rapid routes to economic progress and lots of foreign
students (once the foreigners have found a way to get a visa). Theirs is
a business world of measurement and outcomes. Such a view seems to
lead to a priority for STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering,
maths), although of course there is no reason why such subjects should
not be taught in a somewhat more Newmanish manner. Even
medicine can include more ethics or more of the history and
philosophy of medicine in among the other aspects of the course.
Learning how to think and to function in public should not be the
preserve only of English, Classics or History. Newman is criticized for
assuming a unity of knowledge and a literary kind of culture which held
disciplines together. Yet the modern trend towards inter-disciplinary
links, bemoaning the ‘silos’ of different disciplines, may be taking us
back to his insights.
The philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre wrote an article on Newman.
in 2009, which reflected in part on the economic crisis. He argued that
many of the major disorders of recent times had been brought about by
distinguished graduates of great universities who had received an
inadequate general education and therefore acted ‘decisively and
deliberately without knowing what they were doing’. He mentions as
an example the collapse of Long-Term Capital Management: ‘a story of
experts ludicrously victimised by their own expertise’. His conclusion is
worth quoting at some length. ‘What we have to learn then from
Newman is first of all that undergraduate education has its own
distinctive ends, that it should never be regarded as a prologue to or a
preparation for graduate or professional education, and that its ends
must not be subordinated to the ends of the necessarily specialised
activities of the researcher. But it is not just that undergraduate
education has its own ends. It is also that undergraduate education,
when well conducted, is in key part an education in how to think about
the ends of a variety of human activities and, that is to say, in how to
evaluate, among others, such activities as those of the specialist and the
researcher, the activities of those dedicated to the ends which the
contemporary research university serves. The danger is therefore that in
research universities the ability to think about ends, including the ends
of the university, will be lost and with it the ability to engage in radical
self-criticism, so that the leadership of those universities will become
complacent in their wrongheadedness.’ (Alasdair MacIntyre ‘The Very
Idea of a University: Aristotle, Newman, and us’ British Journal of
Educational Studies Vol 57, no. 4, December 2009. Quotations from
pp 361-2).
How does Oxford match up? I do not have many fears when it
comes to the House, for here we have a clear academic policy and are
dedicated to underwriting the tutorial system, come what may. There
are areas where we are not exactly Newmanesque, but they are few and
the general culture of the place is purposeful and inter-disciplinary. We
have a limited number of graduate students, very bright and well
When it comes to the University as a whole, I have less confidence.
It lacks clarity over undergraduate education and seems bent on an
endless expansion of graduate students without a clear rationale.
Sometimes it seems that we are doing more of what we are not so good
at, at the expense of what we are best at, in order to ape the best US
Universities. Academic policy is almost completely delegated to the
four divisions and they happily pursue their own immediate and very
different interests.
Mercifully, Oxford is not a corporation, so the federal checks and
balances mean that passing fashions are often sabotaged. That is not
conservatism, for there is rapid change as well. But in among it, there
must be thinking and indeed debate over ‘The Idea of a University’.
