Evil Eye

 

 

 

The evil eye -Mal OCcchio - The evil eye truly exists, it is real and tangible.

As it stands, the modern Western culture has so deeply repressed all knowledge of it and of its effects that it overwhelms us.  The western civilisation are mistaken  and believe that is is something else entirely. Therefore, it is free to operate un checked,its effects are convulsing society in a paroxysm of Invidia. 

 

Invidious Envy - this is the active manifestation of passive resentment. 

This energy is projected outward through the gaze (i.e. through the whole language of gestures & physiognommy), to which most moderns are deaf towards and unaware of. 

 

It is especially true that when we're unconscious of such magic, that it works best. Moreover, it's known that the possessor of the Eye is nearly always unconscious- not a true black magician, but almost a victim - yes, but a victim who escapes alignity by passing it on, as if by a reflex reaction.

I've noticed that people remain much more attuned to the languages of gesture; where there's no TV & "nothing ever happens", people watch people, people read people. Passersby in the street pick up your mood, & according to their temperament they clash with it or harmonize with it or manipulate it. I never knew this till I lived in Asia. Here in America, people react to you most often on the basis of the idea which you project.

I've heard it is said that the Mediterranean & Mideast worlds evolved a complex phenomenology of the mal occhio because they are more given to envy than us Notherners. However, the Evil Eye is a universal concept, missing not in any space (such as the relaxed & rational North) but only in time -- to be exact, in historical time, the time of cold reason. Reason's protection against magic is to disbelieve it, to believe it out of Reason's universe of discourse.

Reason & Magic are both superstitions ("left-over beliefs"). I suggest that the mal occhio "works"; but my analysis is neither rational nor irrational.

Now Envy is universal. But some societies attempt to keep it under control, while in others it is unleashed by being turned into a social principle. 

We have no defence against the Evil Eye because our entire social ethic is rooted in Envy. At least the benighted Asians have their amulets & prophylactic gestures. It was not Reason which banned these frail defences. However, it was Christianity

 

 

The two post-Christian ideologies - Capitalism & Communism - are both fuelled by "Verb. sap.," as English schoolboys used to say Envy. In both systems it is a survival trait -- no, it is an economic trait. "Oeconomy" -- an old word for the totality of all social arrangements. The "Eighties" was not the decade of greed (which at least has The minorities envied the majority, the
