Spectres of the Titanic

Thinking through and beyond Heidegger at The London Forum. The sound distortion is from the police helicopter that was in the air over the demonstrators that had blockaded the building and set off smoke bombs. The authorities insistently escorted us all out right after my speech.

Jason Reza Jorjani
Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is an Iranian-American and native New Yorker of Persian and northern European descent. After receiving his BA and MA at New York University, he completed his doctorate in Philosophy at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Jorjani currently teaches courses on Science, Technology, and Society (STS) and the history of Iran as a full-time faculty member at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He is a professional member of the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) and also works with the Iranian Renaissance, an organization dedicated to bringing about a cultural revolution in Greater Iran on the basis of the pre-Islamic Persian heritage. His first book, Prometheus and Atlas, was published by Arktos in 2016 and went on to win the Book Award from the Parapsychological Association. has done numerous interviews, and delivered invited international lectures, on various subjects.


  • Probably a good talk, but you still have to go back. Also, bring back It was a way better website. Better content, better format. Better all around.

  • In Jorjani’s lectures, I take his interest in paranormalism somewhat non-literally. The idea seems to be that in an organic society, it would be *as if* members of the society, and the different functions within it, could read each others’ minds — similar to how this is possible in a tight nuclear family, or among twins.

    The part of Jorjani’s work I find a unconvincing is his idea that Persian Acheimenid intellectual culture (about which we know very little, actually) provided a more important input for the formation of Western culture than the Magian culture (Jerusalem and Byzantium) did.

    Jorjani clearly has the potential to be an intellectual light. I worry that he will become so preoccupied with running Arktos and, and keeping the alt right coalition of The Current Year happy, that he won’t set aside time and mental space to refine some of the incomplete aspects of his thought.

  • pays lip service to National Socialism but doesn’t mention the Jew- The Jews themselves call fascism gentile ruling gentiles. The Jews are at the heart of the problem but Jorjani is demonizing only Islam

    “Be vigilant. The Spanish Inquisition and German fascism must not be repeated. Nip in the bud any attempts to put society in opposition to us, and destroy any anti-Jewish tendencies at the very outset, whatever shape they may take. Fascism is not an accidental phenomenon. It arises in places where we underestimate the local people’s efforts to be the owners of their own land.Fascism develops secretly in all nations. Luckily for us, different nations arrive at it at different times and under different names.”

  • I am open-minded about many things, but I have never been very impressed by paranormal studies. At the same time, I also do not believe that a mechanistic worldview can explain everything. Our own minds are an example. I do not think consciousness can be explained in mechanistic or mathematical terms. It is not even an emergent phenomenon, in the physical sense.

  • Ever see signs like “Jews against Islamophobia”?

    What Trump should do is hang a sign on the White House window that says:

    “Patriots against Islamokatastrofia”. ‘Katastrofi’ meaning destruction in Greek.

    It was the policy of Islamokatastrofia that reduced so many Muslims into destitute and desperate ‘refugees’.

    Let the US pursue ‘American First’ and let Muslims pursue ‘Muslims First’.

    Everyone is happy.

    • You assume there is no globalist world order being pursued which is in fact doing the mixing and matching- culture clash, wars for Israel,the tools to achieve their aims
