Theory for Peace

The Lévinasian Eschatology

Emmanuel Lévinas University of Paris Emmanuel Lévinas Albert Einstein

Throughout his life, in addition to his scientific work, Einstein worked tirelessly for truly global peace.

In 1940, Einstein wrote a manuscript titled Theory of World Peace that preceded the founding of the United Nations.

Totality and Infinity

Lévinas wrote in his major work on peace Totality and Infinity: Peace opposed to war is peace based on war

An eschatological vision of peace is peace by itself or beyond the word peace. An eschatology isn't about peace but about what lays beyond (beyond the totality of the Universe).

The proactive effort inherent in an eschatological vision for peace is far from being about doing nothing in the face of evil. On the contrary, it concerns a choice for intellect and reason, the serving of a higher good, based on the concept of actual beginningless infinity, and a corresponding eschatological vision that extends beyond the totality of the Universe.

Do not lower yourselves to evildoers would be a practical example of eschatological vision derived reason for an intentional choice to break the cycle of violence.

Within the context of reason, there is no place for hate and evil.

Reason and intellect is a higher good than war and revenge.

Bertrand Russell as an anti-war activist in 1961

What would MacGyver do?

An example of a philosophical eschatology for peace

MacGyverIn an episode of MacGyver, in an attempt to stop a young gang member, who was entangled in a developing culture of hate, from seeking revenge for the murder of his brother, MacGyver said You are smarter than this.

The one seeking revenge chose intellect and won. Reason and intellect enable people to win.

Lévinas wrote in his major work on 🕊️ peace:Of peace there can only be an eschatology.

Lévinasian philosophical eschatology means a vision of beyond the totality, which is what is called upon when MacGyver says to the person seeking revenge: You are smarter than this.

The statement of MacGyver You are smarter than this encourages the person to rise above the cycle of violence and revenge, and to choose a more intelligent and peaceful path. This aligns with the view of Lévinas that eschatological vision allows for a transcendence of the totality and a relation to ∞ infinity.

The complex philosophical wisdom on peace of professor Lévinas is summed up in one sentence by MacGyver:You are smarter than this

Norway was close to a prevention of the Libya war, until a suspicious terrorism event took place in 2011, after which the Prime Minister of Norway became the head of NATO, and after which Norway dropped the most bombs on Libya of all countries.

As can be seen on the website Christchurch Truth, the 2019 New Zealand terrorist attack is called a PsyOp.

After a myserious attack on my home in 2019, paranormal influences forced me to investigate the attack and I reported about it with sincerity through the website .com.

Also in 2019, the film Third Eye Spies was released that shows that paranormal perception is real.

A plea to prevent the war in 🇮🇶 Iraq

Water crisis in Iraq

Before the war in 🇮🇶 Iraq in 2003, I noticed a plea by a group of scientists in Scientific American who claimed that the war could be prevented by solving the extreme water crisis.

In 🇮🇷 Iran today, some people literally fight over the last drops of water.

Instead of solving the problem, water systems in Iraq were specifically targeted by bombings and sanctions, causing massive suffering and death among the civilian population.

Sanctioned Genocide: Killing the Children of Iraq

Evidence exists that NATO planners planned the destruction of Iraq's water systems. A documentary film by award-winning journalist John Pilger uncovers details.

[Show details and link to film]

A declassified document from the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) - titled "Iraq's Water Treatment Vulnerability" -outlined with deadly precision the effect economic sanctions would have on Iraq's water supply.

"Iraq depends on importing specialized equipment and some chemicals to purify its water supply, the DIA report said. "Failing to secure supplies will result in a shortage of pure drinking water for much of the population. This could lead to increased incidences, if not epidemics, of disease.

"Although Iraq is already experiencing a loss of water treatment capability, it probably will take at least six months before the system is fully degraded.

According to U.N. aid agencies, about 1.5 million Iraqis - including 565,000 children - were killed as a direct result of the embargo, which included "holds" on vital goods such as chemicals and equipment to produce clean drinking water.

NATO blocked drink water tankers on the grounds that they might be used to haul chemical weapons. This was at a time when the major cause of child deaths in Iraq was a lack of access to potable water.

Award-winning journalist John Pilger - who produced the documentary film "Paying the Price - Killing the Children of Iraq" -said up to 5.4 billion dollars in vital humanitarian supplies for the people of Iraq were being obstructed.

Thomas Nagy, a professor at George Washington University who discovered and brought the DIA document to the media's attention, said the U.S. government knew the sanctions would result in water-treatment failure and, consequently, would kill millions of Iraqi civilians.

The lack of access to clean drinking water led to widespread public unrest and protests, causing the emergence of the Islamic State (IS) and its violent campaign against the government.

By choosing to solve the water crisis, the well-being of millions of people and children could have been protected, instead of harmed. It could have turned people into friends and prevent terrorism fundamentally.

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein: Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent problems.

In the saying of Albert Einstein "intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent problems", one can find an ethical responsibility.

In the saying of MacGyver "You are smarter than this", one can find a Lévinasian eschatological motive.

The ethical responsibility and eschatological motive combined provide a basis for the pursuit of non-violent pro-active solutions that bring people together and that support a path of intellectual progress for humanity and beyond.

Air-to-water technologies

As of 2024, there are dozens of advanced air-to-water technologies that can produce sufficient drinking water to solve the water crisis in the Middle East. An example company that promises to have a Hydropanel based solution for the capacity to meet the demand, is from Arizona USA.

Another example is the Dutch-Canadian Air-to-Water technology company Rainmaker that has a unit available that is capable of producing 20,000 liters of drinking water per day.

Can a farm of 1 million Rainmaker Air-to-Water machines solve the water crisis in Iran?

Rainmaker Air-to-Water machines have the capability to produce up to 20,000 liters of drinking water per day from the air. The machine is also capable of being installed on a rooftop and can be connected directly to the water supply.

The machine has the potential to work well in Iran, especially in areas with suitable humidity and temperature levels.

By choosing to solve the water crisis as a group of scientists had advocated before the war in Iraq, the well-being of millions of people and children can be protected, instead of harmed. It can turn people into friends and prevent terrorism fundamentally.

Protection of children

The water infrastructure in Iraq (2003) and Libya (2011) were intentionally destroyed. That shows a pattern.

Lévinas' philosophy and his concept of an eschatological vision for peace can counter the ideas proposed by Luke 21:24 from the Bible by emphasizing the importance of ethics, responsibility, and peace in the present moment, rather than waiting for a future event to bring about 🕊️ peace.

🕊️ Support Peace



The primary argument of this article:

The ethical responsibility expressed by Albert Einstein (^) and the Levinasian eschatological motive expressed by MacGyver (^), combined, provide a basis for the pursuit of non-violent pro-active solutions that bring people together and that support a path of intellectual progress for humanity and beyond.

Reason and intellect is a higher good than war and revenge.
