# Theater Deconstructed by Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

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, theoriaθεωρία, 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.[8] The word has been in use in English since at least the late 16th century.[9]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” (genitivekynos).  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,[5] a distinction he seems to have revelled in, stating that “other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them.”[6]

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.

—Quran, sura 114 (Al-Nas), ayat 1–6[15]

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.

SECRET SOCIETIES

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…

# The Origin of the Western Philosophical System

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 RomeAuctoritas 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

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

http://www.cornell.edu/video/the-spirit-of-roman-law

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 (Sanskritअघोर aghōra),[2] are ascetic Shaiva sadhus.

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.[3][4]

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.

# Reason

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.[1] It is closely associated with such characteristically human activities as philosophysciencelanguage,mathematics, and art, and is normally considered to be a definitive characteristic of human nature.[2] The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationalityand sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.[3]

Reason or “reasoning” is associated with thinkingcognition, 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 effecttruth and falsehood, and what is good or bad. It is also closely identified with the ability to self-consciously change beliefsattitudestraditions, and institutions, and therefore with the capacity for freedom and self-determination.[4]

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 γυμνοσοφισταίgymnosophistai, i.e. “naked philosophers” or “naked sophists”)[1][2] 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.[2]  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.

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;[25] andXenophanes claimed that he believed in the transmigration of souls.[26] 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.

### Pythagorean theorem

$a^2 + b^2 = c^2$.

While the theorem that now bears his name was known and previously utilized by the Babylonians and Indians, he, or his students, are often said to have constructed the first proof.

### Tetractys

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., 29

Aristotle claimed that the philosophy of Plato closely followed the teachings of the Pythagoreans,[78] 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).[55] 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.[56]

### 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.

# The Metaphysics of Joxua Luxor.

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.

# Shekhinah

ShekinahShechinahShechina, or Schechinah (Hebrewשכינה‎), is the English spelling of agrammatically feminine Hebrew name of God in Judaism. The original word means the dwelling orsettling, and denotes the dwelling or settling of the Divine Presence of God, especially in theTemple in Jerusalem.
