Nemesis Plane VII

Definition/Summary:

Nemesis

  • Goddess usually portrayed as the agent of divine punishment for wrongdoing or presumption (hubris)
  • The inescapable
  • Divine retribution
  • Distributor of fortune, neither good nor bad, simply in due proportion to each according to what was deserved
  • Resentment caused by any disturbance of this right proportion, the sense of justice that could not allow it to pass unpunished

Plane

  • Abstract surface which has infinite width and length, zero thickness, and zero curvature

Expanded info:

  • Nemeseia festival-to avert the nemesis of the dead, who were supposed to have the power of punishing the living, if their cult had been in any way neglected

Plane of immanence concept in the metaphysics or ontology

  • Means “existing or remaining within” generally offers a relative opposition to transcendence, that which is beyond or outside
  • Philosipher Giles Deleuze rejects the idea that life and creation are opposed to death and non-creation
  • He conceives of a plane of immanence that already includes life and death.
  • This means there are no deviations, redundancies, destructions, cruelties or contingency as accidents that befall or lie outside life; life and death were aspects of desire or the plane of immanence
  • This makes Pure immanence¬†aka pure plane, an infinite field or smooth space without substantial or constitutive division

Add/Misc:

  • “It is only when immanence is no longer immanence to anything other than itself that we can speak of a plane of immanence”
