Ted Cruz is NOT a Christian.

ted_cruz13.jpg

A CHRISTIAN FOLLOWS THE NEW TESTAMENT NOT THE OLD TESTAMENT.  A CHRISTIAN, BY DEFINITION IS A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST.

“Innovations of New Words of Torah is the Old Way.” the Zohar

There are 3 Torahs,the Abrahamic, the Mosaic and the Messianic.  Moses separated the Waters of Abrahamic Torah from the Mosaic Torah when he weeded out the Jews that clung to Babylon & Egypt, the Mizraim.  That was his Mitzvah.  Jesus is the Greater Moses (Messiah) because he once again separated “The lost children of Israel” from the invasive Babylonian Death Cults that had concealed themselves in their ranks in the form of the Sicarii.  This necessitated the Creation of Islam by Mohammed who claimed to be a Judeo-Christian religion, resurrected the Abrahamic Torah, and claimed he was the last Prophet of God and the Quran abrogated all of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures.  In the Bible they start out violent and are Abrogated by the Peaceful scriptures, the Quran starts out peaceful and is abrogated by Scriptures of Violence. . .

Islam is an Invasive Death Cult, not a Religion.

“Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 10: 5-6)

Samaritan (n.) Look up Samaritan at Dictionary.comOld English, “inhabitant of Samaria,” a district of Palestine, from Late Latin Samaritanus, from Greek Samareia (see Samaria). A non-Hebrew race was settled in its cities by the king of Assyria after the removal of the Israelites from the country. They later adopted some Jewish ways, but largely remained apart.  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Samaritan

I have written on the subject before but I find it necessary to reiterate. The image of the Good Samaritan has become so reified in the consciousness of Christians.  His goodness has become used to characterize the Samaritans in general as Good, this is called the fundamental attribution error, characterizing things in terms of essences.  Jesus was a Philosopher King and as such he taught High Philosophy, he was a part of the Math Cults created by Pythagoras and he was in the tradition of Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates.  In order to be a carpenter he had to be conversant in Algebra.  Jesus was asked the Question, “Who is my neighbor.” and as was his tradition he answered the question in the form of a parable as was the Jewish Tradition which has Layers of meaning ( Jewish tradition of layered meaning.)

The Samaritans were anything but “Good” they were the ones stoning people to death, they were the ones praying in the streets like the hypocrites, just as Muslims are doing today. ( Samaritans )  The reason Jesus used them for an example is for several reasons, the word used for Neighbor translates to “near” and is a reference to shepherding. ( The Reason Jesus used Shepherding Metaphors ) Jesus taught a Philosophical family and he was using the word Neighbor as though it were the word Brother as in Philia, Philoish, or Philosophy ( Philia Sophia, Platonic Love of Wisdom).  As every philosopher that is worth his salt knows the exception proves the rule not the exception because it is an exception.  As an exception it is an implicature, inviting scrutiny and contemplation, what was it that made him a brother that should be brought near?

As you can imagine, if you weren’t supposed to step foot in a Samaritan camp you wouldn’t be building your neighborhood for your philosophical family next to theirs.   Now the Sadducee and the Pharisee that passed up the person who had been assaulted and robbed by Highway men were both of the same Torah or philosophy that the Samaritan subscribed to, what was different was his behavior.  He had treated the wounded person as though he were an equal.  He had applied the Golden Rule to the person who was abandoned in his plight.  So a brother is as a brother does, even if he is a Samaritan.

It is also quite likely that among the Samaritans the Jewish Babylonian Zealots known as the Sicarii were living and hiding.  There are 3 law covenants, the Abrahamic Law Covenant, the Mosaic Law Covenant, and the Messianic Law Covenant.  Just as the Muslim Holy day is on Friday, and the Jewish Sabbath is on Saturday, the Christian Holiday is Sunday.  In the same wa,y as the Judeo-Christian religion evolved the grosser more violent elements that tied them to tyrannical Babylon were eliminated.  The people that were the Jews back then are not the people that are the Jews today.  Because the Invasive Babylonian Death Cults could no longer conceal themselves among the Jews, because they were no longer welcome,  Mohammed created Islam and rebranded it as a Judeo-Christian religion, once again trying to blend in with the people he intended to stab in the back.  As the Muslim saying goes, “First comes Saturday, then comes Sunday.”

Remember that the Samaritans were the people that moved into the area and adopted a portion of the Hebrew laws, not all of them, just enough so Yahweh would tolerate their presence.  ( Palestinians are Philistines, Literally.)  Whereas before, the assassins were hiding amongst the Jewish populations, as the Jewish and Gentile population merged and moved farther west now these assassins can only hide amongst their own people.  Only and Idiot like Barack Hussein Obama would knowingly invite them into our midst.

Ancient Mystic Order of Samaritans.

Rabbi Ba’al Shivah Reveals the Secret of Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream.

nebuchadnezzar

I’m not going to bother proving every single point, part of this is going to be preliminary research for a “fictional” vignette for Shivastus Solomonicus.  Many of you know that I am rather gifted at kabbalah, and an expert on Jewish Exegesis among some of my other talents.  So it would not behoove me to explain everything to novitiates.  I’m going to talk to the people that at least know something.  It had never really piqued my interests before but recently I have been studying Pythagoras, and realized how much of an influence he had on Plato.  What we know about Plato is actually completely inextricable from what we know about Pythagoras.  We literally can’t tell where one ends and the other begins.  We don’t know why Pythagoras broke his own vows of secrecy in order to teach Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates so many of the highest level initiatory secrets.  Did they have their own secret society outside of the Pythagorean math cults?

Of further interest is that we see none of the layered meaning and nuanced coded sophistry that we see in the Old and New Testament in the Quran or the Hadith.  While it attempts to mimic the verbiage and typography it is completely flat and one dimensional, given to a single understanding and meaning.  The Quran and Hadith are obviously the work of a different inferior perspective.  Whoever wrote them have no understanding of the Jewish practice of imbedding layered meaning into text through the practice of PaRDeS a phonetic homage to paradise.  To understand is to be in the Promised Land.

There is no doubt in my mind that the people that wrote the bible possessed the secrets for creating the major civilizations that were “blessed by God” in the form of their becoming World Powers at one time or another.  For the math cults every mathematical formula was a name of god which you didn’t earn the right to hear until you had passed psychological and moral tests.  You were in fact always being tested.  You were never allowed to speak a name of god to one who hadn’t earned the right to hear it.  The bible was written as a secret history for these people who were constantly running west away from the tyrannical people that would steal their secrets and destroy them.

Now I actually stumbled on this information when I was researching a quote by Plato: “Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.”   It just so happens that it comes from a part of the Republic in which he was discussing the 5 Regimes that signal the Cycles of Decline of a Civilization.  According to Plato the most ideal form of Government was the Aristocracy with the Philosopher King as Ruler.  After a certain period of time had elapsed and a certain number of mistakes had been made this would lead to a degradation of Government and ruler ship into the form of “Timocracy” ruled by a Warrior King.  So we started with Solomon and we Devolved into David, what we see immediately is that the Judeo-Christian religion was interested in reversing the process of decay.

A timocracy (timē, “price, worth” and -κρατία -kratia, “rule”)[1] is a state where only property owners may participate in government. The more extreme forms of timocracy, where power derives entirely from wealth with no regard for social or civic responsibility, may shift in their form and become a plutocracy where the wealthy and powerful use their power to entrench their wealth.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timocracy

Which again would devolve into Oligarchy, or ruling families.  In this Regime the middle class is gone and you have the haves and the have nots.  There are no Military Victories & wealth is squandered and lost.  Will Durant once said that Oligarchies are created when rulers give relatives they are financially supporting positions of authority so they don’t have to financially support them anymore.  Knowing why they received the position they make no effort to execute the office faithfully.  Instead they leach as much money out of the people as they can with taxation and don’t make their lives better.  Wise but poor people have no voice and no influence for the better on the government.  That form of rule then devolves into Democracy.

Democracy is a very bad word for Plato.  There is to much variety and no virtue, the masses are ruled by their passions.  The least desirable element of society breeds and rapidly grows.  They are literally breeding violence and ignorance.  This then evolves into Tyranny.

Under tyranny nobody has any discipline, self-restraint, intelligence or wisdom.  It is complete anarchy, people are lawless, and godless.  There is only violence.  The Tyrant king must kill many people in order to maintain order and prevent himself from being deposed and killed.

You will notice the close correlation between the Dream of Nebuchadnezzar and Plato’s 5 regimes.  What I have just expounded is the true meaning of the dream.  This pattern seems to repeat not only throughout history but in the actual history of a single government.  It is an emergent property that seems to work like a fractal.  Not only did it start at the beginning of civilization it also happens in the life cycle of a Nation.  Plato made reference to a specific number which he didn’t overtly name known as the Number of Man that governs the cycle.  He mentioned a number, which I believe is the actual number at another time 216.  There are several ways of arriving at this number that connect to many of Plato’s theories, but perhaps the most interesting to me is multiplying the number 6 x 6 x 6.  Also of interest is the fact that in 2002 the United States of America turned 216 years old.

I am one of those that believes that the ancients did possess Wisdom and Secret knowledge that we have lost or forgotten.  Even if the numbers aren’t right that doesn’t mean that the psychology is wrong but only time will tell.  What I do know is that Kabbalists were obsessed with gematria just as were the early philosophers and Pythagoras.  The Monadists of which Pythagoras was one believed that the universe was generated by numbers.  He said something I can’t find right now that associated name and number, suggesting that number was greater than name because it actually created the thing.  Remember Adam in the garden of Eden naming all the animals, (binomial nomenclature) as God Numbered them?

A Fated Meeting, Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

lon milo duquette

The Chicken Qabalah was not the first book I had read on the subject.  Still when I read it it spoke to me in a unique voice.  At that time I was communing with Yeshivel who was teaching me the Sephyr Yeshivel.  Yeshivel is a curious entity, his soul energy is that of Jesus and Shiva but it is not all of Shiva’s energy and it is not the Jesus that people think existed.  He is very gentle and very soft spoken.  As I would read he would speak to me in my thoughts and emotions.

I remember reading the explanation of how Ain sof poured itself into Chockmah first and then it flowed into Binah.  Yeshivel had already taught me that Godself had made the universe by separating godself in the form of No Thingness into matter and energy simultaneously, so I immediately, violently, reacted.

Maybe Twenty years later I found myself living in Aliso Viejo California.  I started getting into painting and one of my first paintings was created with the intention that I would give it to a Chassidic Rabbi to explain for him a mystery that he didn’t understand.  I impregnated the painting with that intention.  At that time I had no idea who the rabbi might be.

About seven years later I started having some bizarre experiences, spiritual experiences.  It started around the 4th of july 2013.  My soul energy was being activated by my higher self for the work I was preparing to do.  I was receiving my calling.  I was attempting to create a spiritual revival a spiritual revolution.  Much like Jesus, my trials were now at hand.

A girl that I had worked with at Whole Foods found out some of the stuff that I was interested in and told me that her step father knew some stuff about that.  I met him and came to find out he was personal friends of Lon Milo Duquette, who lived near by and who had a little class every Monday at his house as he had been doing for years.  At our first meeting I brought him the painting having realized that things had come full circle. I also brought my copy of the Chicken Qabalah which he signed for me.

chicken qabalah

I attended that class for several months as we studied the occult literature of Aleister Crowley and the implications of his work.  Lon was of high rank in the O.T.O. I repeatedly pointed out the allusions to Hindu Philosophy that for some reason Crowley had mostly left out of the explanations but which were recurring themes in his visionary poetry.  I became worried that my presence was causing a disturbance with some of Lon’s other students whom he had known for a longer time.  I started coming less frequently.

At the last few meetings Lon started teaching us about his true love.  Enochian Vision magick, of which Lon is probably the foremost expert in the world.

Lon was very proud of these tablets that he had made years before and he happily trotted them out.  We eventually did some scrying in the Enochian Planes.  The first one was rather uneventful for me.  I started to have some experiences like I was going into trance and then there was silence, and then a voice spoke to me, “they are afraid of you because of who you are.”  Constance found this very, very interesting.

The next heaven that we scryed was Air of Air. That one was a lot more eventful.  I saw an image of swords crossed up and down, and then a sword in a hand raised that was in a stained glass window.  This vision occurred right after the government shut down and before I was asked to decode the symbolism of the dove attack of pope Francis.

Click here for my prediction as to whether this would be a year of peace or not.

What it meant to me was that the heavens were embroiled in a battle.  In which no compromise was possible because they were completely at odds with one another.  This was a big, serious, deal.  An astral event.  And it needed a veritable Alexander to cut the Gordion knot.  As a High Level Astral Initiate, I have never sworn a vow to any Secret Society and I come upon my knowledge through the power of my own abilities and those spiritual agencies and entities that aid me.  So nobody had the right to punish me for giving away secrets that I came upon with my own psychic abilities.

Frensham . March 2011 162

At this point it had become very obvious to me that I was having an adverse affect on the other people attending Lon’s meetings.  I stopped coming all together but I would send an emissary to bring gifts for Lon.  I felt that his students weren’t properly appreciating him as the guru he rightly was.  Most of them were interested in him doing stuff for them and trying to increase their own prestige by knowing him.  I wanted to set a good example for how one was supposed to treat a guru.  Also I was at a point where I could attend his classes in spirit without physically being present and I needed to hear myself think.  I was entering a spiritual phase known as the Curse of the Magus. I was listening to the Astral planes and I wasn’t liking what I was hearing.  I needed to be completely focused.

I had heard that Lon was starting a series of trips to China to promote his writings.  There was a plane that had mysteriously  disappeared in that area everybody was speculating where it was and what had happened to it.  I became very concerned sensing a convergence in possible time lines.  I decided to go to one of Lon’s meetings.  He was very surprised to see me as was Constance.  The topic of the missing airliner came up lightly and we speculated on what had happened to it.  I through out a response as a test.  Lon nodded his head that was a possibility.  I told him, “Don’t say that.”  We were throwing the I Ching to see what would happen on Lon’s trip.  With maybe 15 people in the class the same answers came up over and over again.  Lon would have to be very careful and he might get stuck in China for the rest of his life.  It was not a good reading.

Lon did return without event and he offered this explanation.  The people were very concerned about the missing Jet, and the topic came up almost immediately, he had remembered the conversation that we had and he didn’t speculate on what had happened to the air craft, which was completely out of character for him and against his nature, but he was very conscious and prepared and with a perfect poker face, he said he thought it was in the water.

At a later time Lon wanted to appreciate his students by doing readings on them.  I wasn’t physically present but my student at the time was so he did one for me in spirit.  Lon was astounded, he had never seen that many face cards in a single reading.  I knew the reading was legit because when I get an authentic reading this card always shows up to symbolize me.

The-Sun9

Lon had a premonition before the last card came up.  He said, “this better not be the card I think it is.”  and then he said, “Oh, my God!”

Origins of Western Philosophy, Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

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 (Sanskrit: अघोरaghōra)[2] are asceticShaivasadhus.

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.[3][4]

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

28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.  Matthew 7

cicero

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?”[1]  

augur

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).[2] 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

Shiva Shakti - Maha Shivratri

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.[1] 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.[2] The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationality and sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.[3]

The field of logic studies ways in which human beings reason through argument.[6]

  • 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).[7]
  • 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.[8]  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.[1] 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”. [2] 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. [3] 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)[[1]]

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.

hamsa-temporary-tattoo

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:[1]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.[2][3] Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings – including all animals – according to many Indian religions.[4]  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.

Soham (सो ऽहम्so ‘ham[1]) is the Sanskrit for “I am He/That”. (See also: Tat Tvam Asi.)

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.”

I am

“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 nounkohen is used in the Torah to refer to priests, both Jewish and non-Jewish, such as the Jewish nation as a whole,[1] as well as the priests (Hebrewkohanim) of Baal (2 Kings 10:19).

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“.
