Ticket to Heaven


Towards the Unity of Knowledge, the Destruction of Idols
the Reclamation of Western Thought, the Realization of the American Dream
the Final Answer to the Jewish Question, and Utopia



What if the answers we need have been with us all along?

Although we are the most scientifically advanced and educated human beings in history, we are also the most miserable. Many of us have a vague sense that there is something missing, but nobody can put their finger on what it is.

Ticket to Heaven is an examination of the Western world's collapse, a review of the human condition, and a blueprint for a truly utopian society. By building bridges between different fields and finding common patterns between discoveries, author Zachary R.J. Strong reveals the fundamental truths that Western societies have been neglecting, and how applying those truths to our policy and behavior will give us the utopia we seek.

The Ultimate Consilience Project

Consilience is a word with etymological connotations of parts jumping together or unifying, and was invented by British polymath William Whewell in the 1800s to refer to circumstances where multiple lines of independent inquiry all converge on the same answer. Ticket to Heaven is an impossibly ambitious project that unifies the physical sciences, the social sciences, the humanities, and world religions into a cohesive and harmonious whole.

The Solution to the Culture War

By combining the insights in Jordan B. Peterson's Maps of Meaning with the work of Karl J. Friston, Jane Loevinger, Julian Jaynes, and other luminaries, it is possible to not only ground psychology in physical laws, but understand that the root of the culture war is fear.

When we understand how humans develop across their lifespan, we realize that how people respond to novelty dictates not only their personal development, but their interpersonal relationships, political beliefs, and career success. Ticket to Heaven will make you a more effective change agent while revealing the true root of collectivist evil.

A Proof for Orthodox Judaism

Although we like to think that all religions are based on faith and are a matter of subjective opinion, a review of the claims made by Orthodox Judaism reveals that this religion is the only one that has the goods. Ticket to Heaven reveals that the laws enshrined in the Torah are actually the laws of physics, and that there are a number of these laws that apply to non-Jewish societies. By learning and keeping these laws, the West will ensure that it not only survives into the next decade, but improves everyone's quality of life dramatically.

A Decolonial Manifesto

By connecting deep insights in the social sciences with the laws of physics, Ticket to Heaven reveals and details the catastrophic errors made by European states in the last two hundred years. It provides the intellectual justification for a more decentralized, individualized, and folkloric society that not only ensures stability, but improves quality of life.

Summary of Contents

Aleph - The Destruction of Human Nobility

The combined forces of Christianity, European colonialism, the Industrial Revolution, psychology, Marxism, Critical Theory, and postmodernism have all contributed to the degradation of human beings in the current era. All of these culprits have confused the West’s metaphysics to the point of incoherence, threatening the entire utopian project that has been in progress since Plato’s Republic.

Bet - Rebuilding the Person

This will be a grounding of developmental and self psychology in physics and neuroscience, as well as a discussion of mystical experiences, expert intuition, evolutionary dynamics, and functional immortality.

Gimel - Rebuilding the World

Building on the previous section, this will expand the domain of concern to groups, organizations, and societies, grounding their behavior within the laws of physics, establishing common attractor states such as idolatry, and the optimization of social systems.

Dalet - The Pillars of Creation

The scientific worldview, built on pillars of evolution and early-universe physics, is significantly shakier than advertised. Moreover, the Egyptian dynastic chronology is grievously mistaken and is hiding evidence for the Biblical Exodus as-written. The case for and implications of this will be explored here.

Hey - Homo Divinus

The domain of aesthetics, long considered to be subjective, will be grounded in physics, biology, and Abraham Maslow's investigations into high-performing human beings he called "peakers". In light of the Biblical claims previously made, the idea of ultimate beauty will be explored.
