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…
I was very intrigued by your recent article on time, I wanted to respond to it in my own terms or thought technology as I like to refer to it. Since time seems to disappear from the formulas of theorists and doesn’t appear necessary to exist many people in the scientific and physics communities believe that it is an illusion. Time doesn’t necessarily need to exist.
“TIME MIGHT BE A CONVENIENT FICTION THAT NO MORE EXISTS IN THE NATURAL WORLD THAN MONEY DOES. “
Why does the human experience exist?
This is how I want to approach the subject. To quote myself, “All humans have finite capacity, if they had infinite capacity they would be the universe.” This is a reference to Einstein’s reason for thinking that man cannot travel at the speed of light because he would approach infinite mass, becoming everything in the universe. Which is interesting because it suggests that the person moving at the speed of light would become the super position, everywhere at the same time. If you look at the concept of time dilation, there would be much more time from the perspective of that person because time would be moving much more slowly for him.
It is because we have finite capacity that time appears to exist because we the individual are not whole and in order to make ourselves whole we must continue to interact with our surroundings to maintain a kind of wholeness. We return to the universe for food, sustenance, shelter, to expel waste, to procreate, and for us survival is wholeness. One self must rely on the ONE SELF, the universe for survival.
If you look at the connection between mind time and pain what you realize is that pain stimulates the mind and the mind exists to help us connect ourselves with that which would temporarily make us whole, what we need, what we want.
THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING
The reason we have failed to discover the theory of everything is because of the cornerstone that we reject, the human perspective. Fred Hoyle, formerly an atheist, became a deist when discovering the Triple-Alpha process. This was the first time the Anthropic principle was invoked predictively. It suggested that the universe might exist for the experience of human beings.
From my experience humans are the brain cells of god. Intelligence is a very mysterious thing, even though we know it exists and we know it has a huge effect on it’s environment we can’t quantify intelligence like we do everything else.
I have a series of questions for you: Is intelligence native to the universe? If so do you believe it had to be here in some form at the inception of the universe? Would you agree that there is a big difference between intelligent creatures and inanimate objects insofar as we are able to influence our environment? Now please tell me what percentage of the universe is intelligent? What percentage of the earth is intelligent? What percentage of the human body is intelligent? What percentage of the human brain is intelligent?
Human beings and the human perspective are integral to the theory of everything. If you examine the way in which math and language frame the problem one (language) presupposes relationship and the other presupposes a singular will, which would be the will of the universe, which would be god’s will, which the mathematician conflates with his own will.
There are two different perspectives that the human being can have. The person that perceives the universe as an object presupposes tacitly a singular will, one volition, and from their perspective they possess that will and they objectify the universe and those around them, I call this being delusional towards people or relationship. The person who perceives the universe as a person might be delusional about facts but they tend to be less delusional about relationship, imho. There is a meeting place between Psychology and Philosophy where the rational man stands, both non-deluded about facts and the universe and non deluded about people as well.
The Ancient Indian Philosophers tell a story of Markandeya, one of the greatest Hindu saints, that like Jonah found himself expelled from the mouth of Vishnu who symbolized the universe. Outside of Vishnu he found himself floating in cold water in permanent night, not being able to see anything. Until suddenly he saw Vishnu floating on the water in the lion’s pose, after much prayer he was able to get back into Vishnu’s mouth and into our Universe. This story communicates to me that our universe was created for our mind. There is no reason we should be able to understand or contemplate the universe. And I doubt that anything outside of the universe would be in the least way intelligible to the human brain. We are god, understanding god, inside of god. Think of our lives as introspection as it were. Life has experiential data. It has meaning for the individual that it doesn’t communicate to anyone else. Our life, in a way, is like a private conversation between us and the universe.
ORGANIC COMPUTER THEORY
My Organic Computer Theory suggests that humans are not as unpredictable as we think. Every event or fact or statement has positive or negative survival data to the individual, which creates negative or positive emotions. (the binary code for Organic Computers) This depends on how the individual defines themselves. The definition set of the individual determines who they project their sense of self onto (plasticity of the sense of self) and who they retract their sense of self from. This is determined by the character they are playing and the story they think they are in.
Linguistic science and cognitive science believe that we remember things in a matrix of narrative. That is how we string facts together and how we remember them. If we genuinely understand an individual we know how they will interpret events and what kind of impact those events will have on their psyche.
Unlike facts and objects humans are less predictable, less objectifiable, more difficult to understand. So the person good with science and numbers might be almost retarded when it comes to relationship. Thus I refer to humans as Intelligent Objects to distinguish them from facts and objects.
THE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE IS NOTHING CHANGING
The above is how I describe the universe, if their is nothing their can’t be change, and if their is change their can’t be nothingness. If the universe has the ability to settle into grosser and finer elements when nothing is happening. Then one end of the spectrum would be more active and the other end more static, if you were to turn this pole in a circle and touch both ends you would get an explosion as faster and slower moving elements came into contact with one another.
Ponder this, if their were only one source of light in the universe and no mass, their would be no friction and therefore their would be also no heat.
Furthermore, if nothingness, the original substance is like a fluid, if it were to be stirred would it create brecciated nothingness? If that was the case than once again their would be difference and their would be change.
WHY IS THERE EMPTY SPACE?
Another question I have pondered, if time doesn’t exist, why does empty space exist? How come everything isn’t smashed so close together movement is impossible? You see I am very suspicious of this thing called empty space that allows me to see from here to there. What is this substance that I am looking through? I think empty space is a very mysterious substance. We don’t contemplate it because we categorize it as nothing. Is there some force that is the opposite of gravity, perhaps levity that is simultaneously pushing things apart and separating them? Observe how quickly some substances diffuse in a vacuum or even a fluid. Why doesn’t everything diffuse to fill empty space.
In the article it is suggested the time can be a singular dimension not necessarily associate with the other 3. For example, like a photograph their could be space but their wouldn’t be time so their wouldn’t be movement. But why is there space in the first place? Why is their separation? If nothing banged why is it not like we are living in a singularity?
One final comment, if time is an illusion, that means that there must be some time some place before time or outside of time. Which means that all their is right now is the singularity and the illusion of plurality. I wrote a fiction piece a while back showing how this would work, potentially. From the perspective of the person in the singularity every moment of time would be immediately accessible. (http://shivastus.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/out-of-time-2nd-noah-socrates-story/)
If time isn’t real, the Universe isn’t real because the big bang never banged. Which means all their is, is the ONE SELF. So, if that is the case, are we the dream of God?
A huge help in putting together my theories was the work of Okko Behrends. What I do is I look for the movement of ideas, words, philosophies, processes, practices (praxis) from one culture to another over time. These create rhetorical tautologies or identical patterns. Some cultures adopt and keep those patterns because of an affinity and others do not.
Frankly I think that the Augur’s of Pre-Greek Minoan cult were originally from India and in India I believe they were called the Aghori.
The Aghori in Shaivism.
The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremationashes on their bodies, and have been known to use bones from human corpses for crafting skull bowls (which Shiva and other Hindu deities are often iconically depicted holding or using) and jewelry. Due to their practices that are contradictory to orthodox Hinduism, they are generally opposed.
Many Aghori gurus command great reverence from rural populations as they are supposed to possess healing powers gained through their intensely eremitic rites and practices of renunciation and tápasya. They are also known to meditate and perform worship in haunted houses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aghori
8 minutes in Behrend’s defines Auctoritatus as a form of authority not based on force but based on reason, what I refer to as Sapiential Authority.
In ancient Rome, Auctoritas referred to the general level of prestige a person had in Roman society, and, as a consequence, his clout, influence, and ability to rally support around his will. Auctoritas was not merely political, however; it had a numinous content and symbolized the mysterious “power of command” of heroic Roman figures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auctoritas#Auctoritas_principis
44 minutes okko quotes cicero
Auctoritas is determined by it’s good results and it’s success and by the merit of reason. The High priest of the Augure’s didn’t create the law, he didn’t manufacture it, he expounded the law that already existed in the universe the Law that governed success. They were readers of omens, signs, and portents.
The augur was a priest and official in the classical world, especially ancient Rome and Etruria. His main role was the practice of augury, interpreting the will of the gods by studying the flight of birds: whether they are flying in groups or alone, what noises they make as they fly, direction of flight and what kind of birds they are. This was known as “taking the auspices.” The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society—public or private—including matters of war, commerce, and religion.
The Roman historian Livy stresses the importance of the augurs: “Who does not know that this city was founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and in peace, at home and abroad, was done only after taking the auspices?”
It was also antithetical to tyranny. At 14 minutes tyranny = kingship. The Augur, much like the president is supposed to be, (I am glaring at you Obama) is not above the law, they are also under the law. This isn’t from Okko Behrends, but notice how to Remus was not chosen as the first king of Rome because he lived on Aventine hill which was full of “inauspicious birds”. The reason the birds were present was because Aventine hill was used for the disposal of garbage and dead bodies, remember if you will that the Aghori also live in grave yards.
Roman augurs were part of a collegium of priests who shared the duties and responsibilities of the position. At the foundation of the Republic in 510 BC, the patricians held sole claim to this office.
Augury sought the divine will regarding any proposed course of action which might affect Rome’s pax, fortuna and salus (peace, good fortune and wellbeing). Political, military and civil actions were sanctioned by augury, historically performed by priests of the college of augurs and by haruspices on behalf of senior magistrates.
According to Cicero, the auctoritas of ius augurum included the right to adjourn and overturn the process of law: consular election could be – and was – rendered invalid by inaugural error. For Cicero, this made the augur the most powerful authority in the Republic.
In ancient Rome the auguria were considered to be in equilibrium with the sacra (“sacred things” or “rites”) and were not the only way by which the gods made their will known. The augures publici (public augurs) concerned themselves only with matters related to the state.
The jus augurale (augural law) was rigorously secret, therefore very little about the technical aspects of ceremonies and rituals has been recorded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augur
If you examine the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra you will find that the deep intimate conversation between Shiva and Shakti about the nature of reality becomes the basis of philosophical and scientific reasoning. It became the Sohbet of Rumi and Shams and before that it was the intimate conversations that Jesus had with his disciples and before that it was the discussion of the Rabbi’s discussing Torah, or the law of the universe among themselves.
This became the Parrhesia of the ancient Greeks:
Reason is the capacity for consciously making sense of things, applying logic, establishing and verifying facts, and changing or justifying practices, institutions, andbeliefs based on new or existing information. It is closely associated with such characteristically human activities as philosophy, science, language, mathematics, and art, and is normally considered[by whom?] to be a definitive characteristic of human nature. The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationality and sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.
- The original Greek term was “λόγος”logos, the root of the modern English word “logic” but also a word which could mean for example “speech” or “explanation” or an “account” (of money handled).
- As a philosophical term logos was translated in its non-linguistic senses in Latin as ratio. This was originally not just a translation used for philosophy, but was also commonly a translation for logos in the sense of an account of money. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reason
In rhetoric, parrhesia is a figure of speech described as: to speak candidly or to ask forgiveness for so speaking. There are three different forms of parrhesia. Parrhesia is its nominal form, is translated from Latin to English meaning “free speech”. Parrhesiazomai in its verbal form is to use parrhesia, and parrhesiastes is the one who uses parrhesia for example “one who speaks the truth”.  The term parrhesia first appears in Greek literature in Euripides and can be found and used in ancient Greek texts all throughout the end of the fourth century and during fifth century A.D.  The term is borrowed from the Greek παρρησία (πᾶν “all” and ῥῆσις “utterance, speech”) meaning literally “to speak everything” and by extension “to speak freely,” “to speak boldly,” or “boldness.” It implies not only freedom of speech, but the obligation to speak the truth for the common good, even at personal risk.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parrhesia
and that became the sciences, the logy’s, or the logic of, teleology, biology, psychology, ecology, geology, etc. Each logy would have a guru or teacher that specialized in that subject. The entire western civilization evolved out of this process as well as the Western brain and the way western people think in general. Our separation of powers, our checks and balances in the government, our sense of propriety, all of them came from the same place.
27 minutes: The name Augustus was chosen by Octavian chose the name Augustus the name of the High Priest of the Augure’s instead of the name Romulus the first king of Rome, he chose between the two names.
‘In my sixth and seventh consulships [28-27 BC], after I had extinguished civil wars, and at a time when with universal consent I was in complete control of affairs, I transferred the republic from my power to the dominion of the senate and people of Rome…After this time I excelled all in influence [auctoritas], although I possessed no more official power [potestas] than others who were my colleagues in the several magistracies.’ (Res Gestae Divi Augusti 34.1-3)[]
46 minutes, the separation of powers, the leader can assume command of the military upon leaving the polis, but upon entering the polis must relinquish control of the millitary, (a legitimate leader must never use the military against his people).
Compare that with what President Obama recently did, is he giving power back to the people of the united states? Is he more like Augustus or Julius Caesar?
In the exact sense, a tyrant is an individual who arrogates to himself the royal authority without having a right to it. This is how the Greeks understood the word ‘tyrant’: they applied it indifferently to good and bad princes whose authority was not legitimate. [Rousseau, “The Social Contract”] http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=tyrant
In a commentary of Oedipus I once read the author argued that Oedipus Rex should rightly have been called Oedipus Tyrannous because the original term didn’t have a negative meaning, it just meant popular ruler, Julius Caesar was very popular, he also was a usurper of the law.
PREEMPTIVE ARGUMENTS FOR THE HATERS
You are about to use the moving the goal fallacy with yourself as the goal and we are going to have an argument of infinite regress where you refuse to believe what I have just told you no matter how often I support it with facts. You are not a linguisitic philosopher, an analytical philosopher or a philologist, I am. Moreover, I am correct.
The Symbols above is known as the hamsa, it originated in India and was associated with the Jains, who were the Janis mentioned in the story of Moses. The name comes from the Hindu concept of Harmlessness known as Ahimsa, notice the similar phonology?
Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘not to 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 all animals – according to many Indian religions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa
The word itself derives from So Ham the inbreaths and outbreaths of Brahma if you are familiar with my work you know that I believe that Abraham and Brahma are one and the same, I am not the first or the only person who believes this.
When it applies to a person’s name, according to Vedic philosophy it means identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality. Some say that when a child is born it cries Koham-Koham which means Who am I? That is when the universe replies back Soham. You are the same as I am. It also stems from the Sanskrit word which means, “self pride.”
“May [God] bless the lads, and let them carry my name, along with the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac. May they increase like fish in the land.” (Gen. 48:16)
The Talmud (Berachot 55b) explains that Joseph shared a special quality with fish:
“The fish in the waters are concealed by the water, and thus not susceptible to the Evil Eye. So too, the descendants of Joseph are not susceptible to the Evil Eye.” http://ravkooktorah.org/VAYEHI59.htm
Kabbalists such as myself know that “water” is a metaphor for Torah which is synonymous with the law of the Universe that is studied by rabbis, and augurs, and expounded. Fish live in the water, so this zen like koan, which is so paradoxical is saying that the philosophers, the rational people need to be increased. It is these philosophers who are protected from the evil eye.
The Hebrew noun kohen is most often translated as “priest”, whether Jewish or pagan, such as the priests of Baal or Dagon, though Christian priests are referred to in Hebrew by the term komer (Hebrew כומר). The word derives from a Semitic root common, at minimum, to the Central Semitic languages; the cognateArabic wordكاهنkāhin means “soothsayer, augur, or priest“.
Muslim’s claim descent from Adam, as a matter of fact they claim to be the original man and the conceit of being the perfect man. This informs their belief that they are a type of royalty, even though they are the most illiterate group of people on their planet. From their perspective everything and everyone is under their authority and subject to their judgment and punishment. They are the original, the final, and the only cause of the good and everything they do is good because they are the one’s doing it. You can manufacture this manner of stupidity when you have an illiterate people who can’t read themselves, and is told what to do, think and feel by a very small priest class. It is difficult to not be flippant on this subject or respectful even because it is so, so, stupid. Let’s examine. . .
Âdam ( Arabic: آدم, translit.: ʾĀdam, Alternate Spelling: Adem ) is believed to have been the first human being and the first prophet and messenger in Islam. Adam’s role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also venerate his wife, Eve, as the “mother of mankind”. Muslims see Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur’an promulgates that all the prophets preached the same faith of submission to God. His story is told in theQur’an in numerous places, though his Qur’anic narrative differs from that in the Torah in some aspects.
According to the Qur’an, God Created humankind out of clay, shaped it to a form and then commanded the angels to bow (submit) to Adam. Iblis (Devil) refused out of pride and was banished from Jannah (Heaven). Iblis was one of the jinn to begin with.
Coming after the Jews, they take the Jewish story and make it about themselves, dismissing everyone and everything that came before themselves as irrelevant. The interesting way this gets interpreted is that anybody that doesn’t recognize the superiority of the Muslims, is Iblis, this is why they refer to the jews as shayateen, Satan, and the United States as the Great Satan.
In an article previous to this I mentioned the phonological similarities of the word ibis and Iblis and the fact that Thoth has the head of an Ibis and I find this very significant. I will get into more of that later. Now, let’s use my Jewish exegesis to discover why Muslims cannot be descendants of Adam as they say.
Pardes refers to (types of) approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism (or – simpler – interpretation of text inTorah study). The term, sometimes also spelled PaRDeS, is an acronym formed from the name initials of the following four approaches:
- Peshat (פְּשָׁט) — “plain” (“simple”) or the direct meaning.
- Remez (רֶמֶז) — “hints” or the deep (allegoric: hidden or symbolic) meaning beyond just the literal sense.
- Derash (דְּרַשׁ) — from Hebrew darash: “inquire” (“seek”) — the comparative (midrashic) meaning, as given through similar occurrences.
- Sod (סוֹד) (pronounced with a long O as in ‘bone’) — “secret” (“mystery”) or the esoteric/mystical meaning, as given through inspiration or revelation.
First of all the Christians got it wrong, perhaps intentionally, the forbidden fruit was not sex it was in all actuality the human brain, it was the tree of knowledge after all. And in partaking of it one becomes like god. The whole purpose of life on earth was to be like god from the ancient perspective, in living you were performing Theurgia, the work of god. You balanced out the 4 elements fire, water, earth, and air just like god did. In living as a human you were attempting to understand god, this is what separates us from the angels and makes us their superiors. Secondly, since all will is god’s will the devil is actually doing gods will, “The devil is god’s hitman.” my saying and you can quote me on that.
When Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, which is essentially heaven or the Yin world… (http://adstc.wordpress.com/2014/01/26/the-yin-world/) …they were happily unconscious not thinking with their brains but with their emotions, they didn’t have to think about practicality or survival, everything was provided for them. Now that they had chosen to be like god they had to live consciously not like ignorant little animals. Now here is the kicker, Muslims don’t do their own thinking, they reject thinking, they have a priest class to do their thinking for them. Most of them are illiterate and Saudi Arabia translates fewer books into their language than Greece does, and Greece has a much smaller population, Muslims are largest, fastest growing population on earth, reproducing irresponsibly. Muslims never left the Garden of Eden so they can’t be descendants of Adam.
Secondly, they rejected the temple of Thoth in Egypt, as a philologist I frankly think the word thought comes from the Egyptian god Thoth. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-European_language) I suspect that they named their devil Iblis after the ibis headed Thoth and made him their Satan. Intelligence and wisdom and reason is their Satan. Thoth was a scribe, he recorded things, which means that he had memory, Muslims refuse to remember, they lie about history. In the UK they banned teaching the Holocaust in school to avoid offending Muslims. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-445979/Teachers-drop-Holocaust-avoid-offending-Muslims.html)
Muhammad was very clever in an insane, evil, stupid kind of way. He re branded the old evil traditions and superstitions of Babylon as a new religion carrying on in the tradition of Moses and Jesus, when their reforms were to remove the co mingling of the insane, evil, murderous, social climbing Persians from their midst and rank. What he tried to do and is being somewhat successful in doing is making it as though Christianity and Judaism never happened, and extending the Persian empire as was always their tyrannical instinct and purpose.
Rebranding is a marketing strategy in which a new name, term, symbol, design, or combination thereof is created for an established brand with the intention of developing a new, differentiated identity in the minds of consumers, investors, and competitors. Often, this involves radical changes to a brand’s logo, name, image, marketing strategy, and advertising themes. Such changes typically aim to reposition the brand/company, occasionally to distance itself from negative connotations of the previous branding, or to move the brand upmarket; they may also communicate a new message a new board of directors wishes to communicate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebranding
Muslim’s are the children of the lie, and they spread their religion by lying, concealing the evil of it, lying about history and their deeds and their intent, killing anybody that tells others what they are really about and snickering all the while as their evil plan succeeds. The Pharisees in the bible that plagued Jesus were of this creed, it is obvious from the rhetorical tautologies in their narrative and from Jesus own words, “don’t even step foot in a samaritan encampment…”
mathew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.
Matthew 10: 16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.
The Samaritans are adherents of Samaritanism, an Abrahamic religion closely related to Judaism. Based on theSamaritan Pentateuch, Samaritans say that their worship is the true religion of the ancient Israelites prior to theBabylonian Exile, preserved by those who remained in the Land of Israel, as opposed to Judaism, which they say is a related but altered and amended religion, brought back by those returning from the Babylonian exile. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samaritans
Remember if you will how the Pharisees lost debate after debate to Jesus, and they were constantly asking him questions to put him in a trap, where either he would say something illegal by Roman Law, or by Rabbinical Law. This same philosophical battle wages today. Jesus argued against the violent interpretation of the law from the old testament. Argued against stoning women. Argued against a violent revolution. And when he spoke to the Roman leaders they respected him because he spoke with authority, they treated him as an equal.
In ancient Rome, Auctoritas referred to the general level of prestige a person had in Roman society, and, as a consequence, his clout, influence, and ability to rally support around his will. Auctoritas was not merely political, however; it had a numinous content and symbolized the mysterious “power of command” of heroic Roman figures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auctoritas
Muslims claim that Jesus was a prophet of Allah, not true, he serves another god. But if that was the case why then do they have this obsession with the Pharoahs of Egypt that persecuted the Jews?
Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”
So, who are they really? Well I am glad you asked.
But recite unto them with truth the tale of the two sons of Adam, how they offered each a sacrifice, and it was accepted from the one of them and it was not accepted from the other. (The one) said: I will surely kill thee. (The other) answered: Allah accepteth only from those who ward off (evil). Even if thou stretch out thy hand against me to kill me, I shall not stretch out my hand against thee to kill thee, lo! I fear Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Lo! I would rather thou shouldst bear the punishment of the sin against me and thine own sin and become one of the owners of the fire. That is the reward of evil-doers. But (the other’s) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew him and became one of the losers. Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide his brother’s naked corpse. He said: Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven and so hide my brother’s naked corpse? And he became repentant. For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth. (Surah 5:27-32 Pickthall)
If you carefully read this transliteration, and you deconstruct the vagueness’s, obfuscation, and manipulations you see that they are defending the one that killed his brother and placing blame for the killing on the one that got killed. It is unbelievable, they are saying that the one (unnamed) whose offering was accepted, wanted to kill his brother, he didn’t say it, he thought it, and apparently the murderous one had the ability to read minds even though god didn’t accept his sacrifice. “But (the other’s) mind imposed on him the killing of his brother, so he slew him and became one of the losers…” how is that not insane? You forced me to kill you with the power or your brain, but I forgive myself because Allah forgives me. (smh)
One last thing I have said how throughout history these two different peoples strove one against the other, an epic battle between good and evil. Ponder this after everything I have told you, who are muslims really descended from?
Ahura Mazda (/əˌhʊrəˌmæzdə/;), (also known as Ohrmazd, Ahuramazda, Hourmazd, Hormazd, and Hurmuz,Lord or simply as spirit) is the Avestan name for a higher spirit of the Old Iranian religion who was proclaimed as the uncreated spirit by Zoroaster, the founder of Zoroastrianism. Ahura Mazda is described as the highest spirit of worship in Zoroastrianism, along with being the first and most frequently invoked spirit in the Yasna. The literal meaning of the word Ahura means light and Mazda means wisdom.
BELOW IS A RELATED ARTICLE, RABBINICAL LINEAGE OF SOME PEOPLE GOES ALL THE WAY BACK TO EGYPT, SOME PEOPLE POSSESSED THE SECRETS AND THEY TOOK THE SECRETS WITH THEM ON HOW TO BUILD, YOU HAD TO EARN THE RIGHT TO BE PRIVY TO THOSE SECRETS AND NOT EVERYBODY WAS ABLE TO PASS THE INITIATIONS. IF THEY HAD ACCESS TO THOSE SECRETS THEY WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED THEM IF THEY WERE CAPABLE.
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.
So my theory which I feel confident will stand up to the criticism of science, haplo-groups and what have you is that essentially our entire western system of philosophy, religion, logic, science, every structure of legitimate authority comes from the Aghori cult of India. Even the words that we use still hearken back to that ancient philosophical cult, that predated the Greek culture, the cult of the Augure’s. I am not making this up, it is a known fact, you may not know it but that doesn’t make it any less true.
In ancient Rome, Auctoritas referred to the general level of prestige a person had in Roman society, and, as a consequence, his clout, influence, and ability to rally support around his will. Auctoritas was not merely political, however; it had a numinous content and symbolized the mysterious “power of command” of heroic Roman figures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auctoritas
I am a linguistic philosopher and a philologist, and I started noticing patterns in words that were related to one another or had similar or conjunct definitions. This particular grouping of words is most meaningful because not only did it create the philosophy of reason and logic it created the philosophy behind all of the western structures of authority including science.
The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremation ashes on their bodies, and have been known to use bones from human corpses for crafting skull bowls (which Shiva and other Hindu deities are often iconically depicted holding or using) and jewelry. Due to their practices that are contradictory to orthodox Hinduism, they are generally opposed.
Pythagorus, name meant, “I am the Python” and since the Python was a chthonic symbol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chthonic) what he was saying was, “I am death.” Jesus was similarly transliterated, when he said I am Adonai Sabaoth, he wasn’t saying that he was the lord of the Sabbath, he was saying he was the god of death.
ReasonFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Reason is the capacity for consciously making sense of things, applying logic, for establishing and verifying facts, and changing or justifying practices, institutions, and beliefs based on new or existing information. It is closely associated with such characteristically human activities as philosophy, science, language,mathematics, and art, and is normally considered to be a definitive characteristic of human nature. The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationalityand sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.
Reason or “reasoning” is associated with thinking, cognition, and intellect. Reason, like habit or intuition, is one of the ways by which thinking comes from one idea to a related idea. For example, it is the means by which rational beings understand themselves to think about cause and effect, truth and falsehood, and what is good or bad. It is also closely identified with the ability to self-consciously change beliefs, attitudes, traditions, and institutions, and therefore with the capacity for freedom and self-determination.
According to Professor emeritus Okko Behrands, Octavian chose between one of two names, Romulus the first king of Rome, and Augustus the high priest of the cult of the Augure’s. You will notice that we have 2 invasive months in our calendar, Julius and Augustus, the two roman rulers that marked the middle of the Pax Romana. Furthermore, it threw off the numbering of the calendar months, instead of being in their proper places, Sapta, Octa, Nova, and Deca (September, October, November, and December), are 2 places removed from their correct position.
I believe that the Agure’s were associated with Aventine hill on which Remus lived and he was not chosen for kingship of Rome because of the presence of inauspicious birds. Auspicious that is another word that I should add to the list, Shiva is known as the Auspicious one. The birds were carrion birds, omens of death, and as we know the Aghori would sleep in grave yards and were obsessed with death and philosophy the death of delusion and ignorance.
Gymnosophists (Greek γυμνοσοφισταί, gymnosophistai, i.e. “naked philosophers” or “naked sophists”) is the name given by the Greeks to certain ancientIndian philosophers who pursued asceticism to the point of regarding food and clothing as detrimental to purity of thought (sadhus or yogis) and also even naked priests from Ethiopia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gymnosophists
Remember if you will that the Gymnasium is where people were taught the philosophy or Greece and indoctrinated into society.
A little more about Pythagorus:
Aristippus explained his name by saying, “He spoke (agor-) the truth no less than did the Pythian (Pyth-),”
There is little direct evidence as to the kind and amount of knowledge which Pythagoras acquired, or as to his definite philosophical views. Everything of the kind mentioned by Plato and Aristotle is attributed not to Pythagoras, but to the Pythagoreans. Heraclitus stated that he was a man of extensive learning; andXenophanes claimed that he believed in the transmigration of souls. Xenophanes mentions the story of his interceding on behalf of a dog that was being beaten, professing to recognise in its cries the
voice of a departed friend.
Pythagoras was also credited with devising the tetractys, the triangular figure of four rows which add up to the perfect number, ten. As a mystical symbol, it was very important to the worship of the Pythagoreans who would swear oaths by it:
And the inventions were so admirable, and so divinised by those who understood them, that the members used them as forms of oath: “By him who handed to our generation the tetractys, source of the roots of ever-flowing nature.”—Iamblichus, Vit. Pyth., 29Aristotle claimed that the philosophy of Plato closely followed the teachings of the Pythagoreans, and Cicero repeats this claim: Platonem ferunt didicisse Pythagorea omnia (“They say Plato learned all things Pythagorean“) Bertrand Russell, in his A History of Western Philosophy, contended that the influence of Pythagoras on Plato and others was so great that he should be considered the most influential of all Western philosophers.Pythagoras became the subject of elaborate legends surrounding his historic persona. Aristotle described Pythagoras as a wonder-worker and somewhat of a supernatural figure, attributing to him such aspects as a golden thigh, which was a sign of divinity. According to Muslim tradition, Pythagoras was said to have been initiated by Hermes (Egyptian Thoth). According to accounts of Aristotle and others, some ancients believed that he had the ability to travel through space and time and to communicate with animals and plants.
Influence on esoteric groups
Pythagoras started a secret society called the Pythagorean Brotherhood devoted to the study of mathematics. This had a great effect on future esoteric traditions, such as Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism, both of which were scientific/mystical groups dedicated to the study of mathematics/geometry and logical reasoning as opposed to religious dogma. Both Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism have claimed to have evolved out of the Pythagorean Brotherhood.
jacob boehme tetractys…
I am a deist. My god is the faculty of reason in man, which is the only evidence I need of god. The early Christians, Hindus, Hebrews, and Buddhists if you understand their occult philosophy, didn’t believe that god existed as a manifest being in the physical universe. The word Amen, “let it be” comes from the creator god Amun, that manifested everything but never manifested himself. The reason for this is very simple. The universe is made out of the body of god infinitely sub divided. Time is created as a separation of self from self. The mind exists in order to connect self with self, and to help us get what we need to survive and in the act of surviving understanding god. Our mind is that part of ourselves our reason which god gave us, to contemplate himself.
Time though is also an illusion, which means that time doesn’t actually exist. God is outside of time and outside of the universe in his perfect undivided whole. We, with the tiny shard of godself that we possess are living in an illusion of time, as an act of theurgy to understand god and do his will. In the indian story of Markandeya he is vomited outside of god because of not appreciating his life, once outside of god swimming in an ocean without light he realizes that god is the only thing that exists and outside of god there is nothing, because the human brain was not designed to understand anything outside of this universe. The Hebrew story of Jonah is an homage to this Hindu story.
But the theme is recurring and ongoing throughout the different systems. The highest form of god in the Tibetan system according to the Dalai Lama is Samantabhadra, who is male and female engaged in the act of coitus, because god is the creator, and in order to create you have to have male and female.
Furthermore, you see this recurring theme in all of the traditions, (well all of the ones that came from a valid tradition) the reason the celebrate the Sabbath on Friday night after sunset is because that is when the day representing the sacred father and mother meet. That is why you are supposed to roger your wife on the sabbath. That was one of the first human rights reforms that meant you couldn’t work or force someone to work 7 days a weak, of fear of offending god. It was quite simply an unsustainable, undesirable process. And there is no evidence in the world of the mother and father meeting, this happens in concealment. The ancients knew there was no evidence of god in the world. Observe the continuing metaphor.
Ganesh sits guarding the entrance to his mother’s bedroom. It was in trying to prevent Shiva from entering his wife’s bedroom that he was beheaded, and was resurrected by Shiva with the head of the elephant. Heinrich Zimmer whose research was edited posthumously and published by Joseph Campbell affirmed that Buddhism is a sub sect of Hinduism which makes sense since the Siddartha came from India.
In closing god doesn’t exist inside the universe, he exists outside of the universe, and the only evidence of him inside the universe is intelligence, life, consciousness, etc. The whole concept of sitting in seated meditation posture without moving comes from an effort to emulate the prime mover unmoved, any movement is a negation of godself because god doesn’t move and doesn’t act in the world. The division of duties between the husband and wife was also based on this concept of the prime mover. The man moves in the world in the polis but upon entering the oikos the house everything is done for him, he doesn’t lift a finger. The Agency through which god influences the world is through the holy spirit, or the shechinah, god’s active force.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I am trying to explain to people what I do and how I make predictions based on my psychological models. Because people are acquisitively mimetic, they copy behaviors that they see being rewarded. People copy whatever behavior they think of as winning behavior when they want to win. So when one person succeeds in a certain behavior people emulate that behavior and that creates social patterns. When society rewards these patterns it increases the frequency in which we see the pattern repeated and it also increases the intensity of that pattern.
The Psychologists Nalini Ambady and Robert Rosenthal developed this concept of thin slicing in their treatment of married couples. What they found as they interviewed couples and then went back over the tape is that there were two expressions that repeatedly signaled the near demise of the relationship, disgust and contempt. Depending on the frequency and intensity of these expressions the relationship could be determined to be very close to ending.
So I observe in conversation, on the media, in human behavior these patterns and I make predictions based on them. So what does this mean for the near future? Society is about to get a divorce? No, much much worse. The first thing I noticed when I saw Richard Dawkins for the first time was the frequency with which he would flash this feral micro expression of disgust. And then I observed the Fundamentalist Drift of Science as the Dawkinites conflated themselves with science, I call them the cheerleaders of science. And then I noticed the increased hostility of the conversations in the narrative and dialogue on the internet. If you observe the body of evidence I have put together on this blog (http://atheistfallacies.wordpress.com/) you can see that I am not making these claims lightly. I have spent a long time doing social experiments on these people to find out exactly where their heads are at.
Most people aren’t smart enough to detect Richard Dawkins subtle subterfuges in his rhetoric. What he propounds as a philosophy is not a philosophy at all and he is not a philosopher, he is a revolutionary propagandist. He has conflated the hatred of God (misotheism) with atheism and atheism with science. What he is trying to do and succeeding at is making science into a machine to attack religion. He is creating an environment where children can be exposed to the casual ridicule and hatred of religiosity, so that they start to think not only is it normal it is also good. And then he wants to build a bridge for them into the scientific fields and into upper academia, where they will put their prejudices to work, harassing religious people and preventing them from going into certain fields. What he is doing is so dangerous and insidious and deliberate.
This conceit that Atheists have that atheism is new, no it isn’t. Socrates was accused of being an atheist. So ask yourself why have you never heard of that one Atheist culture that was so successful? Because Atheism is unviable as a form of government. There are certain things science can’t do, and when you try to change what science can do you change what science is. Dawkins is building a testament to his own ego. He wants to be worshiped. He sees himself as a kind of Moses of Science taking his people out of a heathen land.
When Karl Marx wrote his theories on Communism, he thought it was science, they even called it that.
“Scientific socialism is the term used by Friedrich Engels to describe the social-political-economic theory first pioneered byKarl Marx. The purported reason why this socialism is “scientific socialism” (as opposed to “utopian socialism“) is because its theories are held to an empirical standard, observations are essential to its development, and these can result in changes and/or falsification of elements of the theory.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_socialism
And when the Germany adopted it, and Stalin adopted it, and Lenin adopted it, they all thought they were doing science and they couldn’t fail. Pure atheist societies are arrogant, heartless, and violent. You can’t use atheism or science or evolution for making an assertion that man should have inalienable rights. They are amoral systems. Dawkins puts religion on trial for all of the crimes that have been committed in the name of religion for thousands of years, Dawkinites assume that atheism is something new. What they are forgetting or ignoring is that while religion has created horrors and atrocities, IT HAS BEEN AROUND AND SUCCESSFUL MORE OR LESS FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, while atheism has never been successful, ever, for any prolonged period of time.
Atheism is moral and philosophical anarchy, it isn’t a belief system, it is the absence of the presence of the belief that god exists. It isn’t big enough of an idea to make any assertion, you can’t build a law code on it, or a government on it. Atheists might be found that have morality but atheism itself is amoral, and atheists don’t have to come to any agreement on what behavior is and is not acceptable, after all, it is survival of the fittest right? If you survive or succeed you are the fittest. Evolution works!
But yeah, things are bad and they are going to get worse… this I promise.
|So, I tried to do a kind of semantic clarification in which praxis—if not on the thither side of this divide—was perhaps somehow between the theoretical and the practical as they are generally understood, and particularly as they are understood in modern philosophy. Praxis as the manner in which we are engaged in the world and with others has its own insight or understanding prior to any explicit formulation of that understanding…Of course, it must be understood that praxis, as I understand it, is always entwined with communication. —Calvin O. Schrag|
Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, practiced, embodied, or realised. “Praxis” may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practicing ideas. This has been a recurrent topic in the field of philosophy, discussed in the writings of Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, Immanuel Kant, Søren Kierkegaard, Karl Marx, Martin Heidegger, Hannah Arendt, Paulo Freire,Ludwig von Mises, and many others. It has meaning in the political, educational, and spiritual realms.
