Dualistic thinking presents us with a profound problem. The basic polarity of Good/Bad is the driving force behind most human conflict, where a potentially fertile opposition crystallizes into enmity and the enemy becomes a “demon”, totally evil and no longer qualified for human compassion or understanding. This is widely recognised, and the traditional response is a “call to unity” – either in the form of a return to common basics, or an advance towards an higher synthesis.

This book presents a different approach. It argues that unity, even in the form of a higher synthesis, is in essence a backward step that sacrifices the potential energy of duality for the peace and stasis of unity. What is really needed is a move forward: from dualistic to trinitarian thinking.

This approach is literally a “solution”. It is to seek a “third principle”, an analog of Mercury or the “Universal Solvent” that transforms a polarised and frozen duality into a flowing and dynamic trinity. Pure conflict becomes transformed into a dance, or game. It is to ask the question “how differently would we see this situation if we had been brought up in a theology of God, Devil and Trickster (The Good The Bad The Funny)?”

The idea is explored in depth, as a philosophy, as a psychology, as a practical way to heal the divisions in society and in our selves. The book provides practical suggestions for further work, including an entire revolutionary magical system based on a trinitarian instead of the traditional fourfold model.

Previously only circulated in manuscript form to a select circle of friends, this first public edition includes the full account of Ramsey Dukes' infamous "Cybermass of Thrice Greatest Data-Hermes". 285 pages with five chymical plates by Louise Hodson plus over 60 diagrams in text.

Review:

Change the way you think

"The Good, the Bad, the Funny" is an entertaining and thought-provoking look into the ways we use logic, and an attempt to change the way we think. While it deals with some rather abstract issues, authour Ramsey Dukes manages to write in a very clear and humourous style which makes for a very engaging read... I found myself thinking over the book throughout the day, while I waited to get back into reading it."

"Changing the way we think is an incredible task, and fortunately this book is so good that I will be happy to reread it several times, and take the effort to implement it into my way of thinking. This may take patience and effort, and may lead to long-lasting changes... if none of this is appealing, fortunately the book is an excellent read and provides page after page of amusement."
