Viadescioism (pronounced v-ah-de-shi-oh-ism) is a philosophy, and religion based off the understandings of The Wolf of Antimony. It incorporates his understandings of philosophy, ideology, martial arts, and healing.

Etymology:

The word viadescioism comes from the latin word “via” meaning road, way, highway, or path, the Latin word “de” meaning “of” , and the Latin word “scio” meaning knowledge, while being combined with the suffix of -ism implying a practice, system, or doctrine. This makes the word viadescioism literally come out to the path of knowledge. The word viadescioism is pronounced v-ah-de-shi-oh-ism. The individual who practices viadescioism would be known as a viadescioist.

Understandings:

Exclusivism:

Viadescioism holds no form of exclusivism, and allows anyone to join, if they wish to take on the understandings of viadescioism for themselves. Viadescioism can also be connected to any other school of thought, beliefs system, or even religion.

Viadescioism understands that there are many different paths to the divine, and all pass will eventually come to the same conclusion.

Emanationism:

Viadescioism has the understanding of emanationism which tells that all constructs come from a higher vibration of source, fall in vibration, and will eventually return to that source.

Monism:

Viadescioism understands the whole of existence from a monism perspective. This means that everything can be broken down into one ultimate unit, or construct. This makes up everything, is everything, and is present in everything.

Dualism:

The dualism of viadescioism means that the universe is split up in to two forces, and energies usually referred to as yin, and yang, or masculine, and feminine energies. These energies work with each other in order to facilitate a dynamic balance in the universe. Viadescioism does not subscribe to the concepts of “Good”, and “Evil”, because of the subjectivity of both of these concepts.

Pluralism:

In viadescioism existence can also be understood through pluralism, allowing multiple things to make up, and to work together in order to form the whole of existence. There are as many pluralistic systems as there are ways to separate, or categorize the world, and all the systems can be used to understand how everything works from their unique perspectives, and are important to understand, and to keep in mind.

Determinism:

Viadescioism has the understanding of hard determinism, especially causal determinism, and Logical determinism. It has the understanding that free will does not exist as a metaphysical construct, and that everything is determined based on earlier causes which will determine particular outcomes based on factors that have preceded it. Choice, and action is determined by multiple factors, and no choice can be separate from these determined factors.

Free Will:

Free will can still be seen as an illusion, which may be embraced in moral situations in order to determine responsibility, so that the subjectivity of one’s morals can be based on a more direct constant. This free will illusion allows us to understand that events in relation with us are still ours in a moral sense, especially in the context of everyday situations, and that we can still pay the consequences for actions that are determined upon us.

Existentialism:

Viadescioism also practice is existentialism which allows the individual to go searching for their own subjective meaning, so that the viadescioist does not succum to nihilism, and will give there  subjective meaning to their experience, and the world around them. The meaninglessness of the universe should be accepted, and understood, so that an individual can work with it, and move past it to create their own subjective meaning. Subjective meaning is an important part of existence, but the only thing that will assign that subjective meaning, is the individual. Viadescioism does not subscribe to in inherent meaning, and because of this Viadescioism does not work with essentialism.
