Of course, this is hardly a new or profound insight, but many fail to grasp the fundamental goal of a world dominated by corporations. Many believe corporations exist purely to maximize profit and value for their shareholders, which helps explain most of the actions corporations take – expanding market share, offshoring labor, minimizing expenses, influencing regulations, etc., but these activities are secondary to a corporation’s main objective, which is to incorporate. What corporations seek to do above all else is to absorb, assimilate, and integrate everything within society into an indistinguishable whole under the guise of diversity, competition, and particularization. This indistinguishable whole can be called The System, and the primary goal of The System is to create a totalitarian one-world government. Corporations expand and empower The System by acting as unifying and assimilating forces. Hence, corporations are of The System, by the System, for the System.
Corporations are legal entities that are separate and distinct from their owners. Corporations enjoy the same rights, responsibilities, and privileges individuals supposedly do in Western societies – they can enter into contracts, lend and borrow money, take legal action and have legal action taken against them, own assets, assume liabilities, and file taxes. Corporations are literally considered physical manifestations – that is, as tangible and visible entities representing an idea or quality.
As physical manifestations, corporations are bodies (from the Latin, corpus). They are incarnated beings (from the Latin, carne meaning flesh). But what exactly has been given a body? At the metaphysical level, they can easily be confused with human beings, save for a few distinct differences. Human beings are incarnations of the Divine; we are the spirit made flesh. Corporations are incarnations of the Mundane; they are the temporal made flesh.
This brings forth another distinct difference – human beings have a “body” presence in the world – we possess actual flesh. A corporation’s “body” presence is purely legalistic; it possesses no real flesh, no actual body. Perhaps one way to think about corporations is this – they are the embodiment of the Luceferic within the Ahrimanic. The fuel driving corporate ambitions (and the ambitions of The System corporations serve) is white hot, frenzied, and passionate in nature, but the means of achieving these ambitions are cold, crushing, and technocratic.
Corporations are also lopsided mockeries of Divine Creation. Everything within Divine Creation possesses a spiritual element, but corporations lack this attribute. They are purely material beings. Spiritless. Soul-less. The soullessness of corporations helps explain why they are the System’s weapon of choice in its war against Divine Creation. Entities possessing souls (corporate owners and employees) can hide behind the façade of a soulless entity and manipulate the soulless entity into completing the most soulless of tasks and goals. This helps diminish notions of wrongdoing and also aids in the alleviation of personal responsibility.
Corporations are purely “abstract” material entities driven by purely material motivations. They exist in the physical and exist to serve the physical. They lack a metaphysical dimension, and as such are unconcerned with metaphysical realities or assumptions. Corporations do not care about eternal life in the spiritual sense – they seek eternal life in this world, and they are more than willing to sacrifice or assimilate themselves into The System in order to make that happen. The soullessness of corporations make them the perfect vehicle for the implementation of evil, which is what most corporations today are – this despite the good they might be doing in the world, actual or perceived.
Note added: Perhaps it is wrong to claim corporations lack metaphysical qualities or dimensions because The System corporations serve is fundamentally focused on the metaphysical - opposing and subverting Goodness, Beauty, and Truth. The System is interested in the Damnation Game and uses corporations to achieve its aims. However, I am uncertain how 'aware' individual corporations are of the System's explicit aim. To some extent, I assume they must be, but I doubt this in interpreted in an explicitly metaphysical sense, but rather somewhat obscured behind the veil of "doing business." Then again, it is conceivable that the directors of any given corporation are, in fact, completely 'in' on the game as it were.
