Ben Affleck was recently on Bill Maher with Sam Harris and couldn’t help but start leaking his contempt and disgust before he even started talking.
He angrily asks Sam Harris, “Are you the person who understands the officially codified doctrine of Islam? You are the interpreter of that?”
The mistake that Ben Affleck is making is by trusting a psychopathic religion full of psychopathic people with psychopathic doctrines to tell the truth about themselves and their believes, when their own scripture says it is based on a lie and they have a policy of spreading and protecting their religion by lying about it.
In Islam, taqiyya تقية (alternative spellings taqiyeh, taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation, or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are in fear or at risk of significant persecution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taqiyya
Some early Muslim jurists such as Muadh bin Jabal were opposed to the concept altogether as they felt it implied “lying” (kidhb) and “hypocrisy” (nifaq). In modern times, it is understood that both Kitman and Taqiyya are both forms of altering or concealing information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitman
BEN AFFLECK: “How about more than a billion people who aren’t fanatical, who don’t punch women, who just want to go to school, have some sandwiches, pray 5 times a day, and don’t do any of the things you’re saying of all Muslims. It’s stereotyping.”
Dear Mister Shit4Brains Ben Affleck, all musims in good standing pay Zakat, and in doing so fund Jihad. Observe:
According to the Qur’an, the Zakat funds must be used for the following purposes.
- The Fuqara poor. They are the poor who do not beg for support.
- The Masakin. The destitute; They are the poor who beg for support.
- Amil’ Zakah. Those who administer the collection and distribution of the Zakat funds.
- Mu’Allaf. Those who may be enticed to Islam as well as new converts who need financial support.
- Riqab. Those in bondage; Those Muslim slaves who may have their freedom purchased.
- Fi sabi `Lillah. Those who are fighting in the Cause of Allah, e.g., the Mujahideen.
- Ibn as’Sabil. The wayfarer; Muslim travelers who need assistance while on a journey.
- Gharimun – ‘people burdened with debt’
Does the flag look familiar to you Mr. Too Big For His Britches Ben Affleck? Do you know what it says on it? Fi sabi `Lillah
SAM HARRIS: Just imagine you have some concentric circles. You have at the center, you have jihadists, these are people who wake up wanting to kill apostates, wanting to die trying. They believe in paradise, they believe in martyrdom. Outside of them, we have Islamists, these are people who are just as convinced of martyrdom and paradise and wanting to foist their religion on the rest of humanity but they want to work within the system. They’re not going to blow themselves up on a bus. They want to change governments, they want to use democracy against itself. Those two circles arguably are 20% of the Muslim world.
BEN AFFLECK: What are you basing that research on?
Anand Shinde“Bill Maher – This are the statistics that Bill refers to in some of his shows. Reza Aslan keeps saying that Indonesia is a model country….Ok…..30% there wants you stoned to death if you leave Islam. Some progress!!”
FACTS, STUPID! AND RESEARCH! AND READING BOOKS AND SHIT! STATISTICS SON!
HARRIS: There are a bunch of poll results that we can talk about. To give you one point of contact: 78% of British Muslims think that the Danish cartoonist should have been prosecuted. 78%. So, I’m being conservative when I roll this back to 20%. But outside of that circle you have conservative Muslims who can honestly look at ISIS and say that does not represent us, we’re horrified by that but they hold views about human rights, and about women, and about homosexuals that are deeply troubling. So, these are not Islamists, they are not jihadists, but they often keep women and homosexuals immiserated in these cultures and we have to empower the true reformers in the Muslim world to change it. And lying about doctrine and this behavior is not going to do that…
I don’t like you Ben Affleck, I think you are a schmuck a schmooze artist, a social climbing douchebag without a spine or a moral center. And you are arguing from ignorance. Everything you do and say is in relationship with your reputation in order to appear to be smarter than you actually are and in order to appear to be something that you aren’t.
Schmuck or shmuck in American English is a pejorative meaning one who is stupid or foolish; or an obnoxious, contemptible or detestable person. The word entered English from Yiddish (שמאָק, shmok), where it has similar pejorative meanings, but its original meaning in Yiddish is penis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schmuck_(pejorative)
I got several quotes for this blog from the transcript found here: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/10/03/bill_maher_vs_ben_affleck_on_islam_mafia_that_will_fucking_kill_you_if_you_say_the_wrong_thing.html
I am going to open this piece with an exposition of the 4 rabbi’s that went into Paradise or PaRDeS and the exegesis of the story. Later, I will return to the intro to the The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, translated with commentary by Daniel C. Matt. Those portions that are not sourced come from the Zohar. Let’s begin.
The version in the Babylonian Talmud, which is the best-known, may be translated:
The Rabbis taught: Four entered the Pardes. They were Ben Azzai, Ben Zoma, Acher and Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Akiva said to them, “When you come to the place of pure marble stones, do not say, ‘Water! Water!’ for it is said, ‘He who speaks untruths shall not stand before My eyes’ (Psalms 101:7)”. Ben Azzai gazed and died. Regarding him the verse states, ‘Precious in the eyes of G-d is the death of His pious ones’ (Psalms 116:15). Ben Zoma gazed and was harmed. Regarding him the verse states, ‘Did you find honey? Eat as only much as you need, lest you be overfilled and vomit it’ (Proverbs 25:16). Acher cut down the plantings. Rabbi Akiva entered in peace and left in peace.
In the commentary printed beside the Talmud text, Rashi says that Ben Azzai died from looking at the Divine Presence. Ben Zoma‘s harm was in losing his sanity. Acher‘s “cutting down the plantings” in the orchard refers to becoming a heretic from the experience. Acher means “the other one”, and is the Talmudic term for thesageElisha ben Avuya. Rabbi Akiva, in contrast to the other three, became the leading Rabbinic figure of the era.
“Again and again Rabbi Shim’on waxes eloquent in the praise of those who study Torah, especially those who do so after midnight. They indeed take the place of the priests and Levites of old, ‘who stand in the house of the Lord by night.’ Those who awaken nightly to study the secrets of Torah become the earthly attendants of the divine bride, ushering Her into the chamber where She will unite at dawn with Her heavenly spouse.”
This is interesting to me for a few reasons, the reference to studying Torah at midnight is interesting because it is after midnight that one practices black magick in Voodoo, modern Voodoo is based on the 6th and 7th books of Moses. Voodoo is something you use when you have no resources and you are fighting an enemy with all the resources. This passage portrays the Levites as a kind of Guardian, hyper vigilant to an attack from the enemy, standing in a heightened state of suspicious awareness while everybody else slumbers.
“Torah, in the Zohar is not conceived as a text, as an object, or as material, but as a living divine presence, engaged in a mutual relationship with the person who studies her. More than that, in the zoharic consciousness Torah is compared to a beloved who carries on with her lovers a mutual dynamic courtship.”
Remember if you will my theory that the cult of the Augures who created the philosophy of law, science, and religion in the West were associated with India and the Hebrews. The High Priest of the cult of the Augures meditated on the divine law that infused the universe, he didn’t create the law and he was subject to it. Even the separation of powers of the president is modeled after the Philosophy of the Augure cult. Think of Torah as the divine law that governs events in the universe.
“The beloved in the nexus of this rrelationship is entirely active. She sends signals of her interest to her lover, she intensifies his passionate desire for her by games of revealing and hiding. She discloses secrets that stir his curiosity. She desires to be loved. The beloved is is closed in an erotic progression before her lover out of a desire to reveal secrets that have been forever hidden within her.
…the day when God gave Torah to Israel and proclaimed His love for her in the song of songs.”
a rhetorical tautology of God giving man a soul by giving him philosophy…
“In the Zohar, the true subject matter that the kabbalist finds in every verse is the hieros gamos itself, the mystical union of the divine male and female – the eros that underlies and transforms Torah, making it into a symbolic textbook on the inner erocit life of God.”
I am going to paraphrase a bit, many of the texts that make the Zohar are of the stories of the rabbis under the tutelage of Rabbi Shim’on. They like the apostles of Jesus wander and teach others, in that journey, as they are having this mystical conversation on the nature of reality and remembering their experiences and what they learn, they often encounter people and beings that have more awareness of certain principles that govern the universe and human behavior than they do. This knowledge also enters into their canon.
“The world as first created was a true Garden of Eden because the blessed Holy One and the Sheckinah were fact to face, joined in constant embrace like that of the upper sefirot Hokhmah and Binah. Divine blessing thus coursed through the system without interruption…”
At this point in time the Jewish people didn’t believe in making visual artistic depictions of men or animals because they feared it would lead to idolatry, but here I can trace the rhetorical tautologies and movement of ideas in this fashion.
According to the Dalai Lama, Samantabhadra is the highest form of Buddha. I think he meant this because this form of the Buddha represents God as the Creator in his male and female aspect, if you ponder you realize that in order to create you have to include feminine and masculine. It might interest you to know that Heinrich Zimmer whose work was published and edited posthumously by Joseph Campbell had determined in his investigations that Buddhism was an offshoot of Hinduism as the Buddhas came from India and Nepal.
Here the author makes mention of the myth of Plato which I will expound on for those of you who are not aware of it, and he connects it with the early Jewish myth, which is not only interesting in its implications it is also appropriate in light of my theories.
The Symposium Quotes“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”
When he said this he was using the word Philia, or Brotherly love, or fraternal love, making a reference to a philosophical family, notice the word philosophy has the words philia and sophia in it. The single soul would be Sophia, or Psyche, or Torah. This also has to do with the Philosophy of Greek Astrology if that is interesting, you can read this piece that I wrote. https://thoughtuncommon.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/philosophy-of-astrology/hermaphrodite (n.) late 14c. (harmofroditus), from Latin hermaphroditus, from Greek Hermaphroditos (Latin Hermaphroditus), son of Hermes and Aphrodite, who, in Ovid, was loved by the nymph Salmacis so ardently that she prayed for complete union with him and as a result they were united bodily, combining male and female characteristics. Also used figuratively in Middle English of “one who improperly occupies two offices.” As a name for the condition, Middle English had hermofrodito (late 14c.), hermofrodisia(early 15c.). As an adjective, from c.1600. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=hermaphrodite“Adam and eve according to the aggadah, were siamese twins, conjoined back to back. This single being is that described in Genesis 1:27: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” …in the following chapter is the separation of this pair, in which they are first turned to face-to-face to one another, … They had to be “sawed apart” so they might be properly united.”
If we wanted to get really esoteric I could trace this idea all the way back to India for you. Do you double dog dare me?
I entered in piece and left in piece so I will leave it to the rest of you to figure out who burns the plants, who drops dead, and who goes insane.
Yesterday I posted a link to an article from richarddawkins.net about Sue Blackmore’s experience at Oxford and how she tried to get the students that came to her lecture to think of a new meme, all they did was think of meme’s that humiliated Christians, when she asked the students to contemplate meme’s that mocked Muslims and Islam 100 stood up and walked out and today I go to look at the same link and it has been data assassinated.
Anyway, I strongly recommend everybody read this article.
Now I look today and the article is back up.
Introducing memes, I asked for volunteers to come up on the stage and invent a new meme. This same young man, called Moritz, was up in a flash, followed by four others. I asked him, at the word ‘go’, to make some simple movements and sounds. ‘One, two, three, Go,’ I said, and he waved one hand around in a circle, chanting ‘In the beginning was the word, and the word ….’. The others then imitated him and that was fun. Three obediently began reciting from the Bible but the fourth threw both arms in the air and declared ‘There’s a big old man in the sky’ and raised a huge laugh and cheer from (some of) the audience. This seemed an opportunity not to be missed so I asked the whole audience, at the word ‘go’, to imitate either of these two new memes, whereupon a great cry burst out of, ‘In the beg…’, ‘There’s an old man …’. Great, I said, we’ve now got two memes, you have just seen meme creation and selection at work.
I explained the idea of religions as memeplexes: they package up a set of doctrines, tell believers to learn them, to pass them on, to have faith and not doubt, and they ensure obedience with fearsome threats and ridiculous promises. This I illustrated with images of Christian heaven and hell. Then I read from the Koran “those that have faith and do good works, Allah will admit them to gardens watered by running streams … pearls and bracelets of gold.” “Garments of fire have been prepared for the unbelievers. They shall be lashed with rods of iron.” More walked out. By the time I arrived at a slide calling religions (Richard’s fault!) ‘Viruses of the mind’, the lecture hall was looking rather empty.
Part of the responsibility that I have taken on myself is to explain to leaders of the Atheist communities, who are capable of understanding, the deeper occult philosophy and meaning behind some of the religions, that these religions were indeed created by Deists and not Theists, (with the exception of Islam which was created by a violent, illiterate, child rapist, and by illiterate I mean he couldn’t read) I wanted to explain to Fidem some of the experiences she herself is going through as explained by kabbalah and Aleister Crowley’s poetry being that he was conversant in multiple different systems, as I am, to see if she gleans anything useful from it.
Below is the tree of life, it is a Qabbalist metaphor and a memory peg system. The theory of everything was created a long time ago by men that I refer to as the super-genii. They didn’t have computers back in the day so they had to remember things by uploading these memory peg systems. The curious thing about these systems is after a period of time forcing yourself to use them the system seems to start organizing information for you. We do have cellular memory and their is a portion of ourselves that recognizes and remembers this system and reactivates. The ancient super-genii weren’t a little smarter than we are today, they were a lot smarter, as we will see.
If one were to take the philosophy of astrology (prior to the discoveries 7 original planet system) and over lap it with the tree of life, and overlay that with the major tarot arcanum, you would have the fully fleshed out theory of everything. The reason that I say the theory of everything is that everything only makes sense or can make sense to the human brain. It is the human brain that makes sense of everything, the human brain is an important component in the universe.
Qabalah has been called “the western meditation tradition” and indeed it links us back to the traditions of India being the western version of the chakra system. Qabalah is jewish mysticism based on the Zohar, in a manner of speaking “Zohar” means light. What is fascinating is that most jews are forbidden to study Qabbalah and even the ones that are doing it aren’t doing it correctly anymore because of an innate fear instilled in them by Jewish religious leaders. They confuse being Jewish with being able to do Qabbalah correctly, but most of them are told to focus on the path workings, which means they never get around to meditating on the sephiroth. This is done to give them a sense that they are studying Qabalah without ever getting anything from it. Part of this problem comes from the fact that every time there has been a Qabbalist renaissance, their has been a revolution. The last qabbalist renaissance was in Spain about 300 years ago, right before the Jews got kicked out of Spain.
Qabbalah, in essence, is a reinterpretation of the scripture, the Jewish religion predisposes itself to this kind of plasticity because the Pentateuch, the first 5 books of the bible, the extended version of god’s name has been devowelated, thereby predisposing itself to controversy and different interpretations, this creates a pattern something like the Sanatana Dharma inside the Jewish faith, since nobody can ultimately prove their absolute correctness or the absolute incorrectness of anybody else and since you can’t change a single letter of the pentateuch on threat of death, their is a type of equality cemented between Jews with different interpretations of the Scripture. When times are bad on returns to the scripture and reinterprets it to remain faithful to the ancestors and still to maintain an identity in a time of turbulent change and in this manner retaining the wisdom of the Fathers.
Origins of the word
The term cabal derives from Cabala (a word that has numerous spelling variations), the Jewish mystical interpretation of the Hebrew scripture. In Hebrew it means “reception” or “tradition”, denoting the sod (secret) level of Jewish exegesis. In European culture (Christian Cabala, Hermetic Qabalah) it became associated withoccult doctrine or a secret.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabal#Origins_of_the_word
A political cult is a cult with a primary interest in political action and ideology. Groups that some writers have termed as “political cults,” mostly advocating far-left or far-right agendas, have received some attention from journalists and scholars. In their 2000 book On the Edge: Political Cults Right and Left, Dennis Tourish and Tim Wohlforth discuss about a dozen organizations in the United States and Great Britain that they characterize as cults.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult#Political_cults
NOW HERE IS THE PART THAT APPLIES TO YOU FIDEM
Technically, Fidem, you are highly spiritually and morally evolved, I realized this as soon as I met you, I know that you have French Jewish DNA. Mary Magdalene went to France after Jesus death, with a girl named Black Sara or Kali Sara, you Fidem are a Kali monad, specifically this one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durga) There was a Qabbalist renaissance in France too, the Cathars, they claimed that the Roman Catholic Church was too motivated by money, and the RCC sacked the castle.
You Fidem are in the top 1% of society as far as morality and higher philosophy go. Most people can’t get as high as you are in 1,000 life times. You will prove this to yourself over time. People have their ceilings, I would direct you to the linguistic barrier in philosophy if you want to go as high as you can.
NOW THIS IS WHERE IT GETS WEIRD
All of the sephiroth below the supernal triad are in da’ath, the sephiroth that doesn’t exist, because the Jews were the cult of 10, they were obsessed with the number 10, they are the source of the decimal system. 10 commandments, tithing, 10 plagues, etc.
A tithe (/ˈtaɪð/; from Old English: teogoþa “tenth”) is a one-tenth part of something, paid as a contribution to a religious organization or compulsory tax to government. Today, tithes are normally voluntary and paid in cash, cheques, orstocks, whereas historically tithes were required and paid in kind, such as agricultural products. Several European countries operate a formal process linked to the tax system allowing some churches to assess tithes.
Oh, wait, I forgot something, I have to go back. All of the patriarchs of the bible are associated with systems of magick, which is why they were written into the bible in the form of a mythological allegory.
The 6th and 7th books of Moses form the basis of modern voodoo. When you are fighting an enemy that has all of the resources with no resources you use voodoo. The 10 plagues were a form of Voodoo. The last plague was an evocation of Azrael, the Archangel of death.
Back to you. As I was saying before the 7 sephiroth below Da’ath are in Da’ath. Da’ath is considered the abyss, the attempt of the wizard/guru is to cross the abyss. The Dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns is the ultimate power in the abyss, the physical world, any light you bring into the world marginalizes it’s authority and wounds it’s ego. That corresponds to the 7 chakras, Jesus removed 7 demons from Mary Magdalene, he brought her to spiritual perfection. She was his main student. He succeeded in bringing the true religion to the west but not through the RCC instead rather through Freemasonry, the Western Guru Tradition, of which he was a member as was Shams, Rumi’s inspiration.
The Dragon is ego consciousness, it can control everybody in ego consciousness. When you cross the abyss you are in super ego and no longer under the influence of the ego consciousness. Not being able to get to you or at you the dragon attacks those close to you turning them on you. Anybody in ego consciousness is a potential danger.
What you are experiencing right now is called the curse of the Magus. Da’ath corresponds to the visuddha chakra or the voice. Pay close attention to Scriptures 19 and 20…
sub Figura I
00. One is the Magus; twain His forces; four His weapons. These are the Seven Spirits of Unrighteousness; seven vultures of evil. Thus is the art and craft of the Magus but glamour. How shall He destroy Himself?
0. Yet the Magus hath power upon the Mother both directly and through Love. And the Magus is Love, and bindeth together That and This in his conjuration.
1. In the beginning doth the Magus speak Truth, and send forth Illusion and Falsehood to enslave the soul. Yet therein is the Mystery of Redemption.
2. By His Wisdom made He the Worlds; the Word that is God is none other than He.
3. How then shall He end His speech with Silence? For He is Speech.
4. He is the first and the last. How shall He cease to number Himself?
5. By a Magus is this writing made known through the mind of a Magister. The one uttereth clearly, and the other understandeth; yet the Word is falsehood, and the Understanding darkness. And this saying is Of All Truth.
6. Nevertheless it is written; for there be times of darkness, and this as a lamp therein.
7. With the Wand createth He.
8. With the Cup preserveth He.
9. With the Dagger destroyeth He.
10. With the Coin redeemeth He.
11. His weapons fulfil the wheel; and on What Axle that turneth is not known unto Him.
12. From all these actions must He cease before the curse of His Grade is uplifted from Him. Before He attain to That which existeth without Form.
13. And if at this time He be manifested upon earth as a Man, and therefore is this present writing, let this be His method, that the curse of His grade, and the burden of His attainment, be uplifted from Him.
14. Let Him beware of abstinence from action. For the curse of His grade is that He must speak Truth, that the Falsehood thereof may enslave the souls of men. Let him then utter that without Fear, that the Law may be fulfilled. And according to His Original Nature will that law be shapen, so that one may declare gentleness and quietness, being an Hindu; and another fierceness and servility, being a Jew; and yet another ardour and manliness, being an Arab. Yet this matter toucheth the mystery of Incarnation, and is not here to be declared.
15. Now the grade of a Magister teacheth the Mystery of Sorrow, and the grade of a Magus the Mystery of Change, and the grade of Ipsissimus the Mystery of Selflessness, which is called also the Mystery of Pan.
16. Let the Magus then contemplate each in turn, raising it to the ultimate power of Infinity. Wherein Sorrow is Joy, and Change is Stability, and Selflessness is Self. For the interplay of the parts hath no action upon the whole. And this contemplation shall be performed not by simple meditation— how much less then by reason? but by the method which shall have been given unto Him in His Initiation to the Grade.
17. Following which method, it shall be easy for Him to combine that trinity from its elements, and further to combine Sat-Chit-Ananda, and Light, Love, Life, three by three into nine that are one, in which meditation success shall be That which was first adumbrated to Him in the grade of Practicus (which reflecteth Mercury into the lowest world) in Liber XXVII, “Here is Nothing under its three Forms.”
18. And this is the Opening of the Grade of Ipsissimus, and by the Buddhists it is called the trance Nerodha-Samapatti.
19. And woe, woe, woe, yea woe, and again woe, woe, woe unto seven times be His that preacheth not His law to men!
20. And woe also be unto Him that refuseth the curse of the grade of a Magus, and the burden of the Attainment thereof.
21. And in the word CHAOS let the Book be sealed; yea, let the Book be sealed.
You are beyond the abyss, don’t cling to anything in the abyss for your own sake. Speak your truth. I know that you have had some interesting experiences, one might refer to them as spiritual or supernatural. There is such a thing as magick, but very few people can actually use it. First you have to become the philosopher king, removing all of the cognitive biases and logical fallacies. Once you have done this things will start to happen. They are already happening for you.
Siddhis[note 1] are spiritual, magical, paranormal, or supernatural powers acquired through sadhana (spiritual practices), such asmeditation and yoga. People who have attained this state are formally known as siddhas.
Siddhi is a Sanskrit noun which can be translated as “perfection”, “accomplishment”, “attainment”, or “success”. In Tamil the word Siddhar/Chitthar refers to someone who has attained the Siddhic powers & knowledge. Chith is pure consciousness/knowledge in Sanskrit also.
