"In depriving myself of the acorns... what have we learned? Nothing! Not one of us has learned!

"Which isn't my point, but very well could have been."

Ashley Raymond, Olympia, 1989

The Tenants of Preeventualism

  1. Eventualism is a general term for any currently nonexistent philosophy which presumes to explain how current trends will lead to a certain future. Most preeventualists are oblivious to the specifics of such theories and choose to ignore manifestations of eventualism in any form.
  2. Preeventualism anticipates these ideas and theories which are constantly on the verge of realization. Therefore, Preeventualism is always on the forefront of culture. Preeventualists never engage in dated or impractical philosophies since preeventualism moves on to anticipating new philosophies after one has come into play.
  3. Optimism is engendered by eventualists. They regard their ideals with hope that these ideals will materialize. Even dark, dystopian vantage points cling to a vision of the future that eventually will be realized. Preeventualists embody frustration with society and all its various forms of thinking. They have been disenfranchised by a world which insists upon failing to live up to futuristic claims of superior modes of thinking.
  4. At this point, many students wonder if preeventualism is merely the antithesis to hope. It is not. Ashley Raymond has referred to such thinking as "posteventualism, if such a thing were worth believing."

    On the contrary, preeventualism is founded on the understanding that hope will always prevail in any mode of thinking. The preeventualist simply opts for a primitive philosophy, wherein concepts are abstract and ideas have not grown to a point where hope can be inspired.

    Which is why many have referred to preeventualism as surintellectualism.
