Since the dawn of civilization their have been two instincts in man at war with one another. Tyranny and Democracy. One of the weapons or tools in that battle was the Theater but Theater predisposes itself to more good than harm precisely because of how it succeeds in creating value for the people witnessing it.
THEATER COMES FROM THE WORDS THEORY AND THEOS
I wish I had recorded the source, I thought it would be easy to find again but most etymologies don’t go back as far as they could.
The English word theory was derived from a technical term in philosophy in Ancient Greek. As an everyday word, theoria, θεωρία, meant “a looking at, viewing, beholding”, but in more technical contexts it came to refer to contemplative or speculative understandings of natural things, such as those of natural philosophers, as opposed to more practical ways of knowing things, like that of skilled orators or artisans. The word has been in use in English since at least the late 16th century.Modern uses of the word “theory” are derived from the original definition, but have taken on new shades of meaning, still based on the idea that a theory is a thoughtful and rational explanation of the general nature of things. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses
Theory is a contemplative and rational type of abstract or generalizing thinking, or the results of such thinking. Depending on the context, the results might for example include generalized explanations of how nature works. The word has its roots in ancient Greek, but in modern use it has taken on several different related meanings. A theory is not the same as a hypothesis. A theory provides an explanatory framework for some observation, and from the assumptions of the explanation follows a number of possible hypotheses that can be tested in order to provide support for, or challenge, the theory. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses
The word theos (θεός) of course being the Greek word for god and Enthusiasm, Enthusiasmos meaning literally “in God”.
When I was creating Shared State Theory of Communication I realized that Theater had an uncanny ability to “communicate a state” which means a thought, a perspective, or an idea. One is inclined to sympathize with the character portrayed as the protagonist. Throughout the play of film one projects one’s sense of self onto the protagonist and this elicit’s emotions akin to those of the protagonist. In a manner of speaking you get to walk in the shoes of another person or look through their eyes, a shared state.
PROPAGANDA OR EDUCATION
For those of you that are skeptical of my research, remember that Plato was a contemporary of Pythagorus and his math cults and Plato used the allegory of the cave. The cave represented the Greek caste system. The director (Philosopher King), could directly the form of the good. The Guardians basically did what they were told and manipulated the images, and the slaves or non citizens that didn’t understand the ideals/idols of the culture were subjected to indoctrination in the form of observing the shadows on the wall of the theater. It is also of interest that early Christians who were more like a Secret Society when they were created, and I believe Christianity traces it’s origins to the Pythagorean math cults, held their secret initiations in underground caves. Ask yourself this, Why do some cultures have long, proud, traditions of art and literature and others do not?
This tool can either be used for propaganda purposes as it was by various tyrants and dictators or it can be used as an educational tool or even a political tool. When of the great uses of the Civilized Western world is the use of Satire, more or less forbidden in the Tyrannical and Islamic countries where theater is used solely for the purpose of Propaganda. Muslims have sentiments that excesses of laughter are a bad thing and that one should not mock or ridicule others, raping, torturing, removing limbs, and be-headings are more acceptable. . .
One would, most likely, first remember “Leni” Riefenstahl and the Nazi propaganda machine. Hitler used the Pollock joke as a form of psychological warfare to lower the self esteem of his opponents before he attacked Poland and killed off all of their intellectuals and artists.
SATIRE, SADISM, SATYRS, AND THE SABBATH
When I was creating Organic Computer Theory which states that Neural Myelination passes onto our children in the form of cellular memory, I noticed how certain types of intelligences were more prevalent in certain groups of people. For example the Jewish people have more comedians than almost any other group of people and far more female comedians than any other group of people.
I believe that they integrated the genes, which they considered valuable, of a group of transgressively sacral artists that were allowed to exist in early Greece for the purpose of keeping a certain denomination of Persians from feeling comfortable in their state. Narcissistic Psychopaths don’t have a sense of humor about themselves and can’t stand being mocked. Socrates, himself, exposed the “Pretenders to Wisdom” and his entourage used to eaves drop on his conversations and laugh as they saw through the illogic and unreason of the Pseudo Wise.
The name Cynic derives from Ancient Greek κυνικός (kynikos), meaning “dog-like”, and κύων (kyôn), meaning “dog” (genitive: kynos). It seems certain, however, that the word dog was also thrown at the first Cynics as an insult for their shameless rejection of conventional manners, and their decision to live on the streets. Diogenes, in particular, was referred to as the Dog, a distinction he seems to have revelled in, stating that “other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them.”
Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind,
The King (or Ruler) of Mankind,
The God (or judge) of Mankind,-
From the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper),-
(The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind,-
Among Jinn and among men.
In Islamic theology, Shaytan and his minions are “whisperers,” who whisper into the chests of men and women, urging them to commit sin. This is where the desire to sin comes from, according to Islam.
Jewish people were instructed to teach their children a craft so that they could be gainfully employed and provide for themselves wherever they went in the world. Every major World Civilization has always had one thing in common, a large middle class, craftsmen could move horizontally and nomadicly with relative freedom. The Jewish people were more or less nomads because they were constantly getting exiled. As they moved about from here to there they were exposed to different ideas and philosophies. Ideas can be a very dangerous thing. Theater can basically frame a new form of the good, a new god.
idea (n.) late 14c., “archetype of a thing in the mind of God; Platonic `idea,'” from Latin idea “idea,” and in Platonic philosophy “archetype,” from Greek idea“ideal prototype,” literally “the look of a thing (as opposed to the reality); form; kind, sort, nature,” from idein “to see,” from PIE *wid-es-ya-, suffixed form of root *weid- “to see” (see vision). Sense of “result of thinking” first recorded 1640s. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=idea&searchmode=none
At this particular moment in time the vast majority of Secret Society members are entertainers, both actors and musicians, they are the current “middle class” craftsmen…
Muslims claim that Jesus was a Muslim even though he drank wine. Also the quran tells Muslims not to take Jews or Christians as friends and to crucify Christians. My views on the Christ are not conventional by any stretch of the imagination. An acquaintance of mine made a documentary on the Lord known as the the Caesar’s Messiah.
His premise is that Jesus didn’t actually exist and that he was actually a literary coup benchmarking the Jewish typology. If that was the case it was the most brilliant mass manipulation since Moses. But I have a slightly different perspective. Many people point to the fact that Josephus didn’t mention Jesus and that any reference to him was a spurious retro insertion. But many overlook the fact that Josephus was a Samaritan and Jesus was overtly biased against Samaritans. Observe:
Josephan scholarship in the 19th and early 20th century became focused on Josephus’ relationship to the sect of thePharisees. It consistently portrayed him as a member of the sect, and as a traitor to the Jewish nation—a view which became known as the classical concept of Josephus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus#Josephus_scholarship
In response Vespasian decided to keep Josephus as a hostage and interpreter. After Vespasian did become Emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor’s family name of Flavius. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus#Josephus_scholarship
Josephus was a Pharisee and the Pharisees were Samaritans. Jesus debated them relentlessly calling them offspring of vipers.
“These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.” Matt 10:5
But what of the account of the Good Samaritan? Well, the disciples knew very well how Jesus felt about Samaritans, so when they asked him “Who is my brother?” because Jesus was trying to teach them a philosophical brother hood, a philoish.
Philia (/ˈfɪljə/ or /ˈfɪliə/; Ancient Greek: φιλία), often translated “brotherly love“, is one of the four ancient Greek words for love: philia, storge, agape and eros. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philia
The Good Samaritan was the exception to the rule, not the rule, the exception proves the rule BECAUSE it is an exception. If a Samaritan acted like that he would be your brother, notice that in the parable Jesus also uses a Pharisee as an example of what a person who is not your brother would do. The adherents to the law code of Abraham, not that of Moses and not that of Jesus.
THE SATANIC CHRIST
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16
Lucifer (/ˈluːsɪfər/ or /ˈljuːsɪfər/) is the King James Version rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵל in Isaiah. This word, transliterated hêlêl or heylel, occurs only once in the Hebrew Bible and according to the KJV-influenced Strong’s Concordance means “shining one, morning star, Lucifer”. The word Lucifer is taken from the LatinVulgate, which translates הֵילֵל as lucifer,[Isa 14:12] meaning “the morning star, the planetVenus“, or, as an adjective, “light-bringing”. TheSeptuagint renders הֵילֵל in Greek as ἑωσφόρος (heōsphoros), a name, literally “bringer of dawn”, for the morning star. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer
Jesus was claiming to be lucifer. Not only that, behold:
5Or haven’t you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent? 6I tell you that something greater than the temple is here. 7If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’a you would not have condemned the innocent. 8For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” Matt: 12
Jesus wasn’t claiming to be the lord of the sabbath so much as he was claiming to be the god of death. Pythagorus name means I am the Python, snakes are chthonic figures, synonymous with death. The Jews helenized and absorbed the Greek culture, Jesus, the carpenter was part of a Pythagorean math cult, he even makes reference to the “cornerstone that the rejected” to this day that is a Freemasonic reference. The Freemasons claim their origins were Pythagorean math cults.
The word Shiva comes from the Hebrew word shiv’ah, which literally means “seven”. The tradition was developed in response to the story in Genesis 50:1-14 in which Joseph mourns the death of his father Jacob (Israel) for seven days. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)#Etymology
The Sabbath is Saturday, Sabado, the Seventh day, lol. Jesus was saying that he was Shiva, the god of death.
“The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ http://biblehub.com/luke/7-34.htm
Can anybody think of a religion today that forbids drinking alcohol? Muslims. Abrahamic law covenant. Ask yourself this question, Why did Jesus turn water into wine? The signature miracle of the cult of Bacchus?
The Bacchanalia were Roman festivals of Bacchus, based on various ecstatic elements of the Greek Dionysia. They seem to have been popular, and well-organised, throughout the central and southern Italian peninsula. They were almost certainly associated with Rome’s native cult of Liber, and probably arrived in Rome itself around 200 BC but like all mystery religions of the ancient world, very little is known of their rites.
I want you to meditate on the nature of the early initiations of secret societies, many being held in caves and the allegory of plato’s cave and what that has to do with modern media. If you can control what people see and hear, you can control what they think and do. Philosopher kings, Guardians, Slaves. Which are you? Do you think for yourself?
24But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
25Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
I have mentioned this before, that Jesus didn’t specifically deny that he was casting out demons by the power of Beelzebub and instead makes a reference to the temple of Solomon who built gods temple using sorcery. But I am bringing this up again for a different reason.
n the Testament of Solomon, Beelzebul (not Beelzebub) appears as prince of the demons and says (6.2) that he was formerly a leading heavenly angel who was (6.7) associated with the star Hesperus (which is the normal Greek name for the planet Venus (Αφροδíτη) as evening star). Seemingly, Beelzebul here is simplyLucifer. Beelzebul claims to cause destruction through tyrants, to cause demons to be worshipped among men, to excite priests to lust, to cause jealousies in cities and murders, and to bring on war. The Testament of Solomon is a Hellenistic[disambiguation needed] Old Testament pseudepigraphical work, purportedly written by KingSolomon, in which Solomon mostly describes particular demons whom he enslaved to help build the temple, with substantial Christian interpolations.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub
Rabbinical literature commentary equates Baal Zebub of Ekron as lord of the “fly.”The word Ba‘al Zebûb in rabbinical texts is a mockery of the Ba’al religion, which ancient Hebrews considered to be idol worship. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub#Judaism
I want you to remind yourself that Socrates exposed the “pretenders to wisdom” and he was known as the gadfly. He was also an initiate of the Pythagorean math cults.
This transformation or humanization of the Satyr appears throughout late Greek art. Another example of this shift occurs in the portrayal of Medusa and in that of the Amazon, characters who are traditionally depicted as barbaric and uncivilized. A very humanized Satyr is depicted in a work of Praxiteles known as the “Resting Satyr“.
Greek spirits [non-classical] known as Calicantsars have a noticeable resemblance to the ancient satyrs; they have goats’ ears and the feet of donkeys or goats or horses, are covered with hair, and love women and the dance.
Although they are not mentioned by Homer, in a fragment of Hesiod‘s works they are called brothers of the mountain nymphs and Kuretes, strongly connected with the cult of Dionysus. In the Dionysus cult, male followers are known as satyrs and female followers as maenads or bacchants.
I want you to contemplate this for an instant. What if in ancient Greece, on Saturday, everybody went to the theater and got drunk and acted stupid and went home and had sex, sometimes with their wives. When the Pharisees accused Jesus of “casting out demons” what did that mean? Atheists hear a phrase like “casting out demons” and they scoff, that is so humorous to them. They lose interest, but, they don’t understand the perspective of the person expressing themselves in that fashion. Something you probably didn’t know because of your obvious lack of interest in any form of religious language.
Some have offered an explanation suggesting that people once held the folk belief that a person’s soul could be thrown from their body when they sneezed, that sneezing otherwise opened the body to invasion by the Devil or evil spirits, or that sneezing was the body’s effort to force out an invading evil presence. In these cases, “God bless you” or “bless you” is used as a sort of shield against evil. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_bless_you
So when the Persian/Samaritan/Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of beelzebub, contemplate for a moment that they might have been referring to laughter…
ISLAM prohibits sinful speech that intends to cause harm to other human beings. It also prohibits excessive laughter or extreme humor. http://www.arabnews.com/news/454234
Laughter, fun, and joking are permissible in Islam provided guidelines from Quran and Hadith are followed. For humour to be in accordance with Islam, the joke should not insult anyone, should not frighten anyone, should be within the limits of Islamic tolerance, should tell the truth, should not be offensive, should not contain unIslamic material or promote immorality and indecency.
I AM GOING TO LEAVE YOU WITH THIS…
You Are of Your Father the Devil
39 They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, 40 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. 41 You are doing the works your father did.” They said to him, “We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father—even God.” 42 Jesus said to them,“If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
Drops microphone, walks off stage…
Some people see events and they don’t have any meaning for them because they don’t know enough to understand the meaning and the way things are connected, so they don’t know what is going to happen next. There are two facts that I used to generate this prediction.
The French Government resigned.
Montebourg at the weekend said deficit-reduction measures carried out since the 2008 financial crisis were crippling the euro zone’s economies and urged governments to change course or lose their voters to populist and extremist parties.
Finance Minister Michel Sapin acknowledged this month that weak growth would mean France missing its deficit-reduction target for this year but stressed the government would continue cutting the deficit “at an appropriate pace”. http://www.cnbc.com/id/101943485#.
15% of France supports ISIS.
Up to 15 percent of French people said they have a positive attitude toward the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The share of ISIS supporters is largest among France’s younger generation, a new poll says. http://rt.com/news/181076-isis-islam-militans-france/
Today I am going to discuss some of the similarities between the Hebrews and the Hindus with my atheist friends and explain some of my ideas on the mind and psychology for them. Above we see the Hamsa, which was originally used by the Jains in India. Even the word Hamsa comes from the Indian word ahimsa, which means:
Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘to not injure’. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm. Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings including animals according to many Indian religions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa
We see that the Hamsa is actually a stylized penis, masquerading as a hand, hands by their very nature are not equilateral, the Shiva lingam represents Shiva’s penis.
The lingam (also, linga, ling, Shiva linga, Shiv ling, Sanskrit लिङ्गं, liṅgaṃ, meaning “mark”, “sign”, or “inference”) is a representation of the Hindu deity Shiva used for worship in temples. In traditional Indian society, the linga is rather seen as a symbol of the energy and potential of the God.
The lingam is often represented alongside the yoni, a symbol of the goddess or of Shakti, female creative energy. The union of lingam and yoni represents the “indivisible two-in-oneness of male and female, the passive space and active time from which all life originates”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_Linga
Shiva being the God of Death is also at the same time the God of life.
Even if you look at the similarities between the so called “horned alphabet” and sanskrit you see similarities. Hebrew was a revolutionary language for a secretive people, it was simplified and modified from sanskrit making it easier to use, it was the language of revolt, Kabbalists have always been very secretive in their communication of revolutionary ideas.
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
Have you ever considered the meaning of Moses finding the Hebrew god on Mount Sinai?
According to some biblical scholars[who?], Horeb is thought to mean “glowing/heat”, which seems to be a reference to the sun, whileSinai may have derived from the name of Sin, the Sumerian deity of the moon, and thus Sinai and Horeb would be the mountains of the moon and sun, respectively.
Interesting that Shiva himself is a moon god, is it not? I frankly think that the burning bush was marijuana, the Aghori shaivists smoke massive amounts of marijuana, and then meditate in grave yards.
Because the Jews were aware of psychology, when they were a warring tribe if you killed in battle you had to sit Shiva and meditate for 7 days before you were clean (kosher) and allowed back into the city. My nom de plume means, Lord of Meditation, because in my slaying of the ego I have killed more than anybody else.
The Hebrew word “shiva” means “seven”, and the official shiva period is seven days. The day of the funeral is counted as the first day of shiva, even though the practice does not begin until after the mourner(s) arrive at the designated location following the funeral. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)#Length_of_shiva
Shiva was a wandering philosopher, India was famous as being a source of wandering philosophers that went walkabout and took their traditions far and wide. When he went to a strange land he would sleep in the grave yard because he was surrounded by an entourage of disembodied spirits to which he ministered, this is not bizarre in the Kabbalist tradition, many rabbis are known to have angelic and even demonic familiars with which they can be seen conversing.
Below we see the Origins of the muslim epithet, “shayateen”.
Had you been a cartographer and geographer working for the British East India company in the 17th and 18th centuries, you would have found all over India thousands of Hebrew-like place names with similar meanings in both languages as well. The map excerpt on this page shows a small section of ancient Seuna-Desa (Zion Land) in what is now Maharashtra (to right). At the bottom right of the excerpt is the city of Paithan, on the banks of the river Godivari. The Indo-Hebrews named the part of the river passing through Paithan’s territory Paithan (Pison, Phison), according to their traditions. In the upper left-hand corner is the city of Satana. According to the legends of the Yadavas (Indo-Hebrews), Satana would have made the folks in Sodom and Gomorah envious. The Seunas and the Satanas decided to resolve their moral and religious differences on the battlefield. The forces of “Satan” lost, but their defeat didn’t dishearten them. Eventually, we came to think of “Satan” as a being who lost the battle but not the war. The bible tells us that such a peace treaty hasn’t yet been signed between these two ancient enemies.
Later in that same article it says this:
Holger Kersten wrote in Jesus Lived in India,
“The relation between ancient Israel and Kashmiri can most clearly be demonstrated linguistically. Kashmirian is different from all the other Indian languages, the origins of which are Sanskrit. The development of the language of Kashmir has been greatly influenced by the Hebrew. Abdul Ahad Azad writes, ‘The language of Kashmir derives from Hebrew.’ According to tradition, in ancient times Jewish peoples settled here, whose language changed into the Kashmirian of today. There are many Hebrew words that are quite obviously connected with the language of Kashmir.” (pp. 68-69.)
24But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” Matthew 12: 24
The pharisees who were practicing the old Abrahamic law code essentially accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of Satan. Are you starting to see the connection here? Instead of denying it, Jesus mentions the Temple of Solomon, and makes a reference to a house being divided against itself. Solomon built gods temple by enslaving spirits and forcing them to do his bidding. Then he turns it around on the Pharisees and asks them by what power they themselves cast out demons.
It has recently occurred to me that their is a huge similarity between the phonology of the words Shayateen and Chaitanya.
The Sanskrit word, Chaitanya, means ‘consciousness’ or ‘universal soul’ or ‘spirit’ or ‘intelligence’ or ‘sensation’. It is the pure Consciousness or the cosmic intelligence, the consciousness that knows itself and also knows others. It also means energy or enthusiasm. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaitanya_(consciousness)
If you remember the Muslims hate the color saffron, which is the color of the robes of the Sarasvati order monks. Notice too the familiar phonology of the word Charlatan and what Mohammed said about Shaytan, he is the whisperer. Remember that Mary Magdalene moved to France after Jesus alleged death. Remember too that Proto-indo-european is more or less a fact. I, being a phonologist, track the movements of ideas across countries and through time.
The word comes from Frenchcharlatan, a seller of medicines who might advertise his presence with music and an outdoor stage show. The best known of the Parisian charlatans was Tabarin, who set up a stage in the Place Dauphine, Paris in 1618, and whose commedia dell’arte inspired skits and whose farces inspired Molière. The word can also be traced toSpanish; charlatán, an indiscreetly talkative person, a chatterbox. Ultimately, etymologists trace “charlatan” from either theItalianciarlare, to prattle; or from Cerretano, a resident of Cerreto, a village in Umbria, known for its quacks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlatan
Imagine if you will the Pharisees bursting in and yelling, “Shayateen! Charlatan! Chaitanya!”. Remember that they reject thought, they reject consciousness, they avoid thinking as much as possible. They fear intelligence.
I am familiar with the word Chaitanya because my Shaktipat Initiatore, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda has a root word in her name. Her name means, Energy = chit, moves= vilas= velocity, bliss= ananda, Sarasvati order monks adopt the suffix “ananda”. The word Chit, energy, comes from Chaitanya, consciousness. The words Chi, ki, come from this root as well as the words Chan and Zen.
Now it is no secret that I think Abraham and Brahma are the same being historically, I am not the first person to think this, many others have come to the same conclusion. If you observe closely you will find many similarities between the marriages of Brahman families and Chassidic jews, what is of interest is that the Aghori, the lingayats, and the Kashmir Shaivists rejected more or less the authority of the Brahman priest class, who are very much like the muslims adhering to the old Abrahamic law code. The lingayats, were poets and mystics, they wore a shiva lingam around their neck and they had a personal relationship with god, and no mediator separating them from god. They had their own nickname for Shiva, and they visualized him in a form that was sacred to themselves. It was very much a personal relationship with god.
According to Heinrich Zimmer, whose work was edited and published posthumously by Joseph Campbell, there is only on Temple for Brahma, and the vast majority of demons worshiped Brahma. This is of further interest when you consider that the Indian demons look so much like Muslims.
