The Psychology of a religious myth

religious-myth

 

“One day, it was suddenly revealed to me that everything is Pure Spirit. The utensils of worship, the altar, the door-frame, all Pure Spirit. Men, animals, and other living beings, all Pure Spirit. Then like a madman I began to shower flowers in all directions. Whatever I saw I worshiped.” 

Ramakrishna

 

Since its origins mankind always had a mythical slant upon life; therefore, the mythological realm, the world of the gods and demons, the carnival of their masks and representations, the “as if” games in which the festival of the lived myth abrogates all the laws of time, letting the dead swim back to life, and where the “once upon a time” become the very present.

In the primitive world, where most of the clues to the origin of mythology must be sought, the gods and demons never have been conceived in the way of hard and fast, positive realities. More like today, for most of the believers in the supernatural, a god, whenever represented by a statue, a painting, a picture, a sculpture or someone wearing a mask or simply a ceremonial dress, could be or coexist simultaneously in two or more places without the impact or solemnity of its presence being diluted through the process of material multiplication. Moreover, the representation of the god is revered and experienced as a veritable apparition of the mythical being that it represents, even though everyone knows that this representation is man-made or that someone human is wearing the mask representing the god or the ceremonial dress. Furthermore, the person wearing the mask or the ceremonial dress will often be identified with the god. The person wearing the mask or the ceremonial dress does not merely represent the god; that person becomes the god. 

The literal fact that the mere presence of the god is composed of a physical representation, a mask or a dress, their reference to a mythical being, and a man or a woman either officiating a ceremony or wearing the mask during some kind of a festival or carnival, is dismissed from the mind of the believers, and the presentation or ceremony is allowed to work without correction upon the sentiments of both the beholder and the actor or minister. In other words, there is a shift of view from the logic of the normal secular sphere, where things are understood to be distinct from one another, to a theatrical or mystical play sphere, where the actors and representations are accepted for what they are experienced: a game of “make believe” and “as if.”

We all know the convention and the rules of the game, surely!

It is a primary, spontaneous device of innocence and childhood, a magical device, by which the world can be transformed from banality to magic in a trice. And its inevitability is one of those universal characteristics that unite all human races in one family: the belief in one self-induced belief, the spontaneous shift of an idea from the level of the sentiments to that of sensual consciousness. A certain spiritual process has reached a conclusion. This process is highly creative, in the highest sense of the word; for, as we have seen, a picture, a statue, a mask, the wearer of a dress become a god. Briefly stated: the phase of becoming takes place on the level of the sentiments, while being is of the conscious world. This is what is to be called the phenomenon of “Divine Seizure” or “Divine Rapture”.

In all the wild imaginings of mythology of all times, a fanciful spirit always have been playing, on the border-line between jest and earnest. The mental attitude in which the great religious feasts are celebrated and witnessed is not one of complete illusion. There is an underlying consciousness of things not being real. A certain element of “make-believe” always has been and is still today operative in all religions. If some of the followers have total faith, some others are just playing the game doing “as if”. The human is a good actor who can be quite absorbed in his role, like a child at play or a politician or a minister of the cult at work. And also the follower, like a child, a good spectator who can be frightened to death by something he knows perfectly well to be no “real” threat, or monster.

A game of make believe

In the Roman Catholic mass, when the priest pronounces the formula of consecration with utmost solemnity, first over the bread, then over the wine, it is to be supposed that the bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ, that every fragment of the host and every drop of the wine is the actual living Savior of the world. The sacrament, that is to say, is not conceived to be a reference, a mere sign or symbol to arouse in us a train of thought, but is God himself, the Creator, Judge, and Savior of the Universe, here come to work upon us directly, to free our souls, created in His image, from the effects of the Fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, which we are to suppose existed as a geographical fact.

In India, it is believed that, in response to consecrating formulae, deities will descend graciously on earth to infuse their divine substance into the temple images, which are then called their throne or pītha. It is also possible, and in some Indian sects and even expected, that the individual himself should become a seat of deity. In the Gandharva Tantra it is written: “No one who is not himself divine can successfully worship a divinity”; and again, “Having become the divinity, one should offer it sacrifice.”

Furthermore, whatever the religion or the spiritual belief, factual or ephemeral, it is even possible as we sadly see it too often, for a really gifted player to discover, to ascertain or even pretend that everything, absolutely everything, including himself and everyone with him, the cats and the dogs, the flowers and the plants have become the body of a god; that everyone and everything on earth and in the universe reveals the omnipresence of god as the ground of all being.

Toward the divine seizure

Belief, or at least a game of “make believe” or playing “as if”, is the first step toward divine seizure and divine rapture. The chronicles of the saints abound in accounts of their long ordeals of difficult practice, which preceded their moments of illumination or being carried away; and we have also the more spontaneous religious games and exercises of both, the professional cults, amateur priests and folks to illustrate the principle involved. The spirit of the festival, the carnival, the holiday, the holy day of the religious and mystical ceremonial, requires that the normal attitude toward the cares of the world should be temporarily set aside in favor of a particular mood of dressing up.

The world is hung with banners. In the clerical sanctuaries, the temples and cathedrals, where an atmosphere of holiness hangs permanently in the air, the logic of the cold hard facts of real life must not be allowed to intrude and spoil the spell. The gentile, the Cartesian, the humanist, the positivist, who cannot or will not play the religious and mythological game, must be kept aloof. Hence the guardian figures that stand at either side of the entrances to holy places: the lions, the bulls, and the fearsome warriors and priests with uplifted weapons and scriptures. They are there to keep out the bad sports, the knowledgeable, the enlightened, the advocates of Aristotelean logic, for whom a cat can never be a dog; for whom the actor is never to be lost in the part; for whom the mask, the image, the consecrated host, the tree, or animal cannot become God, but only a reference. Such heavy thinkers are to remain out of the so-called holy arena. For the whole purpose of entering the blessed sanctuary or participating in the game is that one should be overtaken by the state known in Oriental religions as “the other mind”, “the anya-manas”, “the absent-mindedness”, “the possession by a spirit”, where one is “beside oneself,” mesmerized, set apart from one’s logic of consciousness and awareness, overpowered by the force of a spiritual logic of “indissociation”, wherein a cat is a mouse, and an elephant is also a mouse.

Enlightenment is the key

 who-you-are

Lighten up!

Probing together the days of the ancient, fathoming the grottoes of the Cro-Magnon of the Great Hunt and the Neanderthal, the dens of the crouching cannibals of the glacial ages, examining the enigmatic chalky, skeletal remains of what have been the chimpanzee-like hunter-pygmies on the open plains of the early Transvaal, we shall be finding clues to the deepest secrets not only of the most extraordinary cultures of both the Orient and the Occident, but also of our own most inward expectations, spontaneous responses, and obsessive fears. Our intention therefore, is to explore the deep, very deep well of the past to ascertain what part of the collective universal knowledge has been already labored and perfected, and what portions have been long ago left unfinished or entirely neglected.

Doing so, we will investigate together the mythological fabric of the “Oriental”, all the traditions of that broad and various, yet essentially unified, major province represented by the philosophical myths and mythological philosophies of India, Southeast Asia, China, and Japan, to which can be joined the earlier yet closely related mythological cosmologies of archaic Mesopotamia and Egypt, as well as the later, remotely, yet essentially comparable systems of the Pre-Columbian Middle America and Peru. Then, we will venture in the mythological world of the “Occidental”, the progressively, ethically oriented mythologies of Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all of this in relationship and counterplay to the animus of the Greco-Roman pantheons and the Celto-Germanic. And finally, we will be considering the recent contemporary “Creative Mythology”, that most important mythological tradition of the modern world, which can be said to have had its origin with the Greeks, to have come of age in the Renaissance, and to still be flourishing today in the works of those artists, poets, and philosophers of the West for whom the wonder of the world itself, as it is now being analyzed by science, is the ultimate revelation.

Gathering into a single summation all the information, mystical, mythological, historical and scientific materials pointing out to the roots, the true nature of mankind, its origins and all the possible futures of mankind is no child play. Keeping it rational, impartial and unprejudiced is even more difficult. No one, as far as I know, has yet tried to compose into a single picture the realistic image of the fundamental unity and history of mankind. Never before such an undertaking has been attempted before. Gathering from the deep well of the past, I will, demonstrate, once and for all, that we have now reached the final frontier of mankind intellectual absurdity.

Believing in the divine beings will never drive mankind anywhere else than straight into a living hell.

The Greatest Conversion Myth of All: The Apocalypse

GUANYU

Guan Yu: “The End of the World is before your eyes”

Sydney, Australia

Iku Gou Tendan 7, Dec 2013

Guan Yu or Kansei Teikun as the adepts of Tendou wants to call him, died in 219 A.D. Guan Yu was a general serving under the warlord Liu Bei in the late Eastern Han Dynasty of China. He played a significant role in the civil war that led to the collapse of the Han Dynasty and the establishment of the state of Shu Han in the Three Kingdoms period, of which Liu Bei was the first emperor.

As one of the best known Chinese historical figures throughout East Asia, Guan’s true life stories have largely given way to fictionalized ones, most of which are found in the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms or passed down the generations, in which his deeds and moral qualities have been lionized. Guan is respected as an epitome of loyalty and righteousness.

Guan was deified as early as the Sui Dynasty and is still worshipped by many Chinese people today, especially in southern China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and among many overseas Chinese communities. He is a figure in Chinese folk religion, popular Confucianism, Taoism, and Chinese Buddhism, and small shrines to Guan are almost ubiquitous in traditional Chinese shops and restaurants. He is often reverently called Guan Gong [Lord Guan] and Guan Di [Emperor Guan]. His hometown Yuncheng has also named its airport after him.

The End of the World again predicted for May 2014

On December 7, 2013, in Sydney Australia, Guan Yu, during a TEN-DOU spirit writing ceremony, delivered the following message:

I am Kansei Teikun

Under the direct command of Laum, I came to see good men and women. I will send you a message. Etch my words deep into your hearts.

You have forgotten the promise, time has elapsed and, now The End of the World is before your eyes. What I know; in six months, your heart will run counter to the Path [Tendou]. Now that I can see that, you are no different to the rest of the world; you are not accepting Makkyo [The End of the World, The Judgement Day]. We have sent you numerous words, yet there is no one who accepted Makkyo

MAK-KYO, The Judgement Day or the Apocalypse, as it will be.

I am KANSEI-TEIKUN; Chief of the lawyers in Heaven, and in accordance with LAUM’s [God’s] Command came down to the Sanctuary holding the Heaven in high regard and met you studying hard here. Ignore any rule in Heaven, and the result shall be evident and there is no cause for getting away from punishment. There is no falsehood for tales of MAK-KYO coming.

Causalities of MAK-KYO

The year of chaos, MAK-KYO, is coming. The moment when it would come, the most peaceful world might be changed to a prairie full of odds and ends in an instant. There will be no more time left for evacuation from the most miserable catastrophe prevailed everywhere in the world. As soon as the fatal hour begins to start, no more humans will be found alive. You may tremble with fear, you might as well shudder with awe, and physical bodies will finally be decomposed in frenzy.

Manners and customs are going to be so endlessly corrupted as to have the Heaven fly into a fury at last. Although such a situation could be the inevitable cause of MAK-KYO or Liquidation and Selection [Judgement Day], you shall never have a grudge against Heaven. Being at LAUM’s [God’s] Command, devils, demons and any other black and brutal monsters will come over the world and select Good out of the Bad and judge both Right and Vice. It must be the “Last Judgement’ of Christianity”. You have to make atonement for your sins with the retributions, which shall be returned at a stretch for your causalities accumulated for past 60,000 years.

The miserable aspects of MAK-KYO

MAK-KYO might take on several entirely unimaginable and strange aspects and all activities of the Macrocosm would cease suddenly, the sun will set and thick clouds will hide the moon and then total darkness will prevail. The next moment every star and celestial body will be dancing madly around the sky, and the earth might suddenly shift its axis of rotation at random. As a result, lands will be entirely covered with waves of huge and enormous Tsunami. High mountains will be crushed and blown away by the blast of a super-sonic wind; cities and towns will become a sheet of flame, and finally lands will go to the bottom of the oceans. A sudden rush of vast avalanches will leave numbers of living beings rapidly frozen. Heat waves and hot winds due to the large amount of magma spouted from the crust of the earth and thrown up into the air will cause the great mass of glacier to be melted away. Ancient continents will collapse and fresh textures will be appearing in everywhere. Pillars of fire will arise here and there from the sea surface. The flow of blood will go around the earth with deafening roars. It must be weird and eerie to see the red rivers of blood crossing deep valleys and climbing steep mountains of white bones.

Everywhere will be full of cries, whines, tearful voices of dying people and an atmosphere of complaints, grudges and hatreds issued from ghosts and evil spirits. One would cry after another shout, you would hear numbers of loudly shrieking and screaming voices echoed which would soon be swallowed in violent streams and vanished.  Anybody whoever wishes to cross over the country will never find how to do it. Anyone who will ask for help will never find even the traces of the divines in SAN-KAI [The three worlds combined of Earth, Purgatory and Hell]. The people who happen to be alive will make vain attempts to invite Gods or Heaven. It will be of no use calling parents or searching for children. There will be no more country to depend upon, nor religion to ask for mercy. Downpour, heat wave, storm may attack you altogether. It would be a serious tragedy for man that he has escaped from our Messiah when man met them before.

Even though a man who was initiated into SAN-PO [The Secret Shamanesque Initiation and Protection ritual of Ten-Dou] would have once spoken ill of the Way [Ten-Dou] or neglected their commitment and their vows to SAN-PO, SAN-PO itself would become ineffective. For a man, sorry for what he has done, it will be too late to ask for the Protection of SAN-PO. The ship of the Messiah never fails to set sail once it has put up its sails. However desperately one may cry to God for a message, there will be neither instrument nor stuff necessary for the purpose found anywhere in the world. No more instructors, no more guarantors and no more masters will remain.

Once MAK-KYO will arrive upon the earth, anybody who applied oneself closely to his own business should be carried away floating on the stream of blood, and whoever devoted one to engage in some evil missionary work with a false Way [Any other religion than Ten-Dou] should be piled upon the mountain of bone. Those people who have nothing to do with the Way [Ten-Dou], so that have neither mind nor flesh, should be changed into ashes to be carried away by the wind. Whoever might have a strong mistrust of the Way [Ten-Dou] would sink beneath the ground and could never surface again. If a man dares to speak ill of LAUM [God] or to waste the Initiation into treasures [The initiation to the three treasures of San-Po] by any chance, he shall never be exempted from punishment to be rotted off in blood, washed away by water stream and burnt by fire and finally to be blown up by the wind far from the ground. Thus the 49 days of purifying MAK-KYO must be Hell on the earth. I never know on what scale it will be. Catastrophe of such a triple composition as water, fire and wind might cause the extermination of Humankind. As you know, MAK-KYO is the last and biggest catastrophe out of 81 disasters that will occur in the White-generation [The Actual and Final Generation that will last 10800 years starting May 2014 and will be PARADISE on earth for whoever received the SAN-PO]. And you will know how many numbers of cataclysm came over if only you count them from the first. And you will soon realize the rest must be few. The prophecy is going to come out. You must fear death, fear God.

People should make up their minds to get SAN-PO in haste. Those people who have something to do with Tendou know the time has come. As the Time has come, the Way to be released from the reincarnation and the Means enables people to escape from any disaster will be made public, in order to save souls, spirits and any other livings. The 18th Master has been opening your Gate to Heaven; the top secret of Heaven never has been revealed, since he was endowed with the heavenly mission of saving all the souls of the three worlds from MAK-KYO by receiving SAN-PO. After the moment when man had the Gate [Genkan or the third eye] opened, he could be sure to get the Way to Heaven [Tendou] and he should be forever free from the reincarnation process.

As soon as MAK-KYO comes, you should concentrate your mind to the GEN-KAN [Third Eye], interlace ten fingers together and chant loudly. Then you could reach RI-TEN [Heaven] at once and enjoy yourself at Home [Heaven] having transcended MAK-KYO. As for SHOU-TEN [Earth], under MAK-KYO there will be plenty of proof of Tendou revealed around the world. It will be too late to confess one’s sins after that. “Repentance comes too late.” It would be no use for one’s protection to preach on some dogma or virtue any more. Even if a man might chant any Buddhist scriptures or sit in contemplation, the roar of MAK-KYO [The Apocalypse] would erase them one and all. Whoever would have been leading an idle life in KI-TEN [On earth] should be dragged out of it. The more cruel Hell will be, the less space there will be for the soul or spirit to stay.

How to escape MAK-KYO

People should have to know that there is no other way except Tendou [The Heavenly Way] that enables them to be free from MAK-KYO. Once fouled, the flow of time can hardly become pure again. In the false time, people will never make out the truth with ease.

Although demons and devils will have someone to play as substitute for their body and mouth and to cheat you from then, but you should never forget to emit the light of spirit just from your GEN-KAN [Third Eye]. Concentrate your mind on GEN-KAN, and never give up thinking of Tendou [The Heavenly Way] throughout your body, mouth and heart. If only you might have steady belief, you never fail to feel some response of Heaven at the GEN-KAN. Whoever would devote one to spread Tendou will have some supernatural power and will enjoy an ultra human life.

Now the time of Liquidation [The Apocalypse, the Judgement Day] is coming, so that God is going to change the SAN-KAI [The three worlds of Earth, Purgatory and Hell] upside down and to recreate a new world. Taking a drastic measure of descents of both MAK-KYO and Tendou, God intends to reveal the White-generation, the next Paradise on earth.

The Blind Men and the Elephant

elephant-with-blind-men

The risk of analytical thinking and fragmentation of knowledge

It was six blind men, To learning much inclined, That each by observation, 
might satisfy his mind, Who went to see the Elephant.

The First approached the Elephant, And happening to fall
 against his broad and sturdy side, At once began to bawl: “God bless me! But the Elephant
Is very like a WALL!”

The Second, feeling of the tusk, cried, “Ho! What have we here, so very round and smooth and sharp? To me it is mighty clear, this wonder of an Elephant
Is very like a SPEAR!”

The Third approached the animal, And happening to take
the squirming trunk within his hands, thus boldly up and Spake: “I see, the Elephant
is very like a SNAKE!”

The Fourth reached out an eager hand, And felt about the knee. “What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain, It is clear enough the Elephant
is very like a TREE!”

The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear, said: “Even the blindest man
can tell what this resembles most; Deny the fact who can, this marvel of an Elephant
Is very like a FAN!”

The Sixth no sooner had begun
about the beast to grope, Than seizing on the swinging tail
that fell within his scope, “I see,” he said, “the Elephant
Is very like a ROPE!”

And so these blind men of disputed loud and long,
 each in his own opinion,
 exceeding stiff and strong,
 though each was partly in the right,
 and all were in the wrong!

Then runs the moral of the Buddha:

“Knowing not good, knowing not evil, knowing not right, knowing not wrong, they quarrel and brawl and wrangle and strike one another with the daggers of their tongues, saying, ‘This is right, that is not right’; ‘This is not right, that is right.’”

Clearly, mythology is not for children 

Historically, Mythological stories and ancient Myths have been part of the universal foundation of life, the timeless schema, the pious formula into which life have been flowing when it. But as anyone knows the myths, the mythical, the mythological and spiritual beliefs of civilizations have sensibly varied throughout the world and centuries to such a degree that even today, the “Virtue” of one has often been the “Vice” of another, and the heaven of one the other’s hell. With the old horizons now gone that formerly separated and protected the various cultures of our world and their pantheons, communities that once were comfortable in the consciousness of their own guaranteed godliness abruptly find, that they are devils in the eyes of their neighbors.

Systemic Unity

harmony-Thinker

The Birth of a New Science

The comparative study of all the mythologies of the world compels us to view the cultural history of mankind as a single unit. Such themes as the fire-theft, the deluge, the land of the dead, the uniqueness of God, the virgin birth, and the resurrected heroes, have a worldwide distribution, appearing everywhere in different times, in each and every civilizations, in new combinations while remaining, only a few but always the same. While in tales told for entertainment, such mythical themes are to be taken lightly, in religious and mystical contexts, they are intended not only to be accepted as factual but also, even represented as divine revelations from which entire cultures have or are to derive both their spiritual authority and temporal power. No human society, ancient or modern culture has yet been found in which, such mythological themes have not been repeated in liturgies, interpreted by prophets and vaticinators, poets and authors, theologians or philosophers; presented in art; magnified in song, hymns and psalms; and ecstatically experienced in life empowering visions.

Indeed, the chronicle of our species, from its earliest page, has been not an account of the progress of man the toolmaker, but even more tragically, a record of the pouring of blazing visions into the minds of seers and the efforts of earthly communities to incarnate unearthly covenants. Every society, every culture of the past has received its own seal and sign of supernatural designation, communicated to its heroes and daily proved in the lives and experience of its folk. And though many who bow with closed eyes in the sanctuaries of their own tradition rationally scrutinize and disqualify the sacraments of others, an honest comparison immediately reveals that all have been built from one fund of mythological motifs variously selected, organized, interpreted, and ritualized, according to local need, but revered by every people on earth.

Mankind, apparently, cannot maintain itself in the universe without the belief in some arrangement of some kind of general mythical inheritance. In fact, for all mankind, the fullness of life would even seem to stand in a direct ratio to the depth and range not of his rational thought but of his local mythology.

Why is it that for too many societies and cultures, there is no possible personal empowerment without the existence and the belief in so many and such unsubstantial mystical and mythological themes?

Why is it that so many people are lacking of such ego that they cannot have a destiny of their own?

Why is it that whenever men and women, even today, when they decide to empower themselves, more than often, always elect to do it not on the facts in which the world abounds, but rather on some mythical and immemorial irrational imagination of the facts of life and the reality of their existence?

Would it not be easier for mankind, instead to make life a living hell for themselves and their neighbors, in the name of some more or less rational, merciless abundance of gods, to gracefully accept the plenteousness the world provides?

How long are the modern civilizations to remain spiritually locked from each other in their local ritual entrenchment and false notions of the sense of the general tradition? 

Would it not be better and more productive for everyone and all people to come to some more profoundly rational and systemic based point and counterpoint of human understanding?

While we have to agree that it is a fact of life that the myths and legends of our several cultures work upon us, whether consciously or unconsciously, as some possibly energy-releasing, life-motivating and directing agents, one is to observe that even though our rational minds may be in agreement, the myths and fabulations by which we are living, or by which our fathers lived, can be driving us, at that very moment, more and more diametrically apart.

Fresh insights in psychological research, comparative symbolism, religion, mythology, philosophy and science are now suggesting a new possible image of the possible fundamental unity of the spiritual and metaphysical history of mankind. No one, as far as I know, has yet tried to compose into a single picture the new perspectives that have been opened to us by the scholarship of recent years.

Without straining beyond incommensurable amount of evidence already on hand, but simply gathering from it the fundamentals of a new unitary systemic science, in the days to come, I will, demonstrate, once and for all, through the natural history of the gods and heroes of all time, that we have now reach the final frontier of mankind intellectual absurdity and that it is now time for humanity to take a step forward, not to say backward.

Believing in the divine beings will never drive mankind anywhere else than straight into a living hell.

No religion is honest

God has No Religion

Who looks into heavens for answers is dreaming!

Each and every one of all mythical narratives, of every past and present religious and spiritual beliefs, faith or confession, are nothing else then multiple variations of one single great story: The story of the “Psychic Unity of Mankind”. Regardless of their origin or time of creation, common pattern exists beneath the narrative elements of all the greatest myths and mythical stories of the past.

Since the origin of civilization, all humans shared and are still sharing a basic mental framework and a collective, sometime ignored, sentient mind. This is what we call the “Somatic Mass” of “Knowledge and Awareness”, which each one of us own, have in him or herself and share with all beings and creations of the universe. Some will tap into it very early in their life, some will never do.

As a strong believer in the psychic unity of mankind, I also believe that, from immemorial time, the whole of the human race has been, and still can be perceived, as engaged in its nonstop effort of making this world of ours “Transparent to Transcendence”. Underneath the realm of mystical and mythical phenomena created by mankind, lies a forever eternal source of knowledge and enlightenment, which is constantly pouring its energies into this world of often harsh time, suffering, and ultimately death: “The Collective Mind and Consciousness of Mankind”.

Thus, eliminating all possible intervention of the divine in the day-to-day activities of the human race, what do we have left to govern our life? The answer is easy: Wisdom, knowledge and enlightenment!

To fully demonstrate this affirmation, to fully achieve this almost impossible task of making the world transparent to transcendence, one would need to speak about things that existed before and that are beyond words. One way to do this would be to create “Mythical Metaphors”. One other way to do it would simply be to listen to our own inner sanctum, what some will call consciousness.

Better than conversion: Contemplation!

In contrast with enlightening comparisons, “Mythical Metaphors” often pretend to be the “One and Only” “Absolute Truth” that shall be interpreted and understood literally as representing the “Supreme Reality”, more than often immaterial, of what they are referring to.

First, understand this: Myths and “Mythical Metaphors” are to religions and vaticinators what bullets and guns are to empires and dictators.

Sentences like: “Jesus is the Son of God” rather than “The relationship of man to God is like that of a son to a father”;  “I am the son of God” instead of “I am your one and only King”, are all very deceptive. They all tend to only one thing: To instate fear to better maintain “Law & Order” or to better enslave “The People” in the religious and political power of the authorities governing the society in which they live in.

Another good example of the too often perverse effect of the “Mystical” and “Mythical Metaphors” is the always possible appropriation and misuse of the scriptures, whatever their origin and time, by some malevolent clerical or secular either individuals or groups. For whoever wants to enlist you in whatever religion, cult or sect, “Holy Scriptures” such as the Talmud, the Bible and the Quran, amongst all others, will too often become powerful instruments of conversion and domination instead of being a source of knowledge and enlightenment.

For the unsuspecting naïve and the credulous of the world, “Metaphorical Myths” such as “Genesis” and “Revelation”, are no longer poetic and literary figures of speech epitomizing the understanding, in time and space, of the rise of man’s cognitive consciousness as it evolved from a prior animal state. Instead, they now represent a literal description of historical events as they happened since the creation of the Universe and the unavoidable fate of humanity. Thus: the Universe was created in seven days; the earth is five thousand years old; all of mankind, except for those who received some sort of baptism or protection in consideration of some cash, will soon be destroyed and their soul go to hell to burn in the fires of eternity.

All of this, because the unwillingness of men and women to join one of the one thousand plus gods now available on the marketplace and their unwillingness to obey by the rules of the “King”.

Religions are doomed.

If not North Korea, Who and When?

 1678cavaleiro

Revelation

Various scientific scenarios have been theorized on an eventual doomsday.

1. – An asteroid or comet’s collision with Earth.

Such an event although very improbable for the next few years, happened in the past and will happen again.

Given that the asteroid or comet is big enough, an applicable scenario predicts a chemical change in the atmosphere due to “heat shock” produced by the entry in the atmosphere and impact on earth of the asteroid or comet. Such chemical change would involve the production of nitric-acid rains, the bitterness produced by the Biblical prediction of the Wormwood Star upon a third of the Earth’s potable water.

2. – Is the earth pole shift theory possible?

If a large enough comet or asteroid falls on Earth to produce acid rains, the consequences of such and event will include earthquakes, tsunamis and massive destruction of populations that could mean the “End of Times”. But what about an Earth pole shift?

As a matter of fact, the magnetic field of the Earth has actually switched its direction many times during Earth’s history. This can be verified from geologic records indicating that the Lava flows that have solidified 30,000 years ago are evidence that the magnetic field of the earth was in the opposite direction at that time. The same geologic records show that such a reversal could possibly take less than 100 years.

One effect that may occur during a magnetic reversal is that the Earth may not be protected from charged particles streaming from the sun. These particles are called the “solar wind“, and could be dangerous to life if they reached the Earth’s surface. Solar wind energy can also cause “space plasma storms”, that could cause communication satellites and electronic equipment and instrumentation to fail. Such plasma storms can also cause damage to electric power systems on the surface of the Earth. A large space storm in 1989 made currents on the ground that caused a failure in the Hydro-Quebec electric power system. This prevented 6 million people in Canada and the US from having electricity for over 9 hours.

3. –What about a “man made” apocalyptic disaster?

Do I really have to answer to this one?

We have civil and religious wars going all around the world, economic and political conflicts, poverty and misery, all over the world. The only question is who would be crazy enough to draw first blood.

Bashar Al Assad? Benjamin Netanyahu? Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Kim Jong-un? Vladimir Putin? Barack Obama? Any one of these men or any country that owns the nuclear technology can trigger a sequence of events of apocalyptic dimensions that would fit all the biblical and prophetic description of the end of the world.

Mahomet, Allah, Yahvé, Jésus-Christ ou Bouddha Inc. ?

Au commencement Dieu créa le ciel et la terre  –  Genèse 1:1

Campagnes contre l’islamophobie, contre l’homophobie, contre l’antisémitisme ou contre l’extrémisme religieux, pouvoirs publics, associations en tous genres et pouvoirs religieux vocalisent.

Phénomène mondial plus ou moins apparent selon le degré de déni commandé par la toute délicatesse universelle et l’omniprésence de la maintenant toute souveraine et obligatoire diplomatie de la rectitude, l’on se montre de plus en plus universellement intolérants. Que l’on veuille ou non se l’avouer ouvertement, nous assistons présentement à une irrémédiable ethnicisation du discours social et politique. Peu importe nos origines, nos cultures et nos croyances, les préjugés sociaux, religieux et ethniques  reprennent du gallon et la crise économique n’en est pas seule en cause.

Lorsque le politique – étatique ou religieux – se permet de raisonner en généralités sur l’appartenance sociale, ethnique, linguistique ou religieuse de tel groupe ou tel individu, cela contamine le débat public et favorise l’expression d’idéologies et d’idées préconçues de toutes natures. Quoi qu’il en soit, aucune opération de communication ou campagne publicitaire ne réglera ce problème. Tant et aussi longtemps qu’il n’existera pas un nombre suffisamment nombreux de militants et prêts à se battre contre l’arrogance et la vicissitude du politique et du religieux, les préjugés et le jugement demeureront. S’il est important de proclamer l’illégitimité de toute forme des peuples ou des croyances, que ce soit en fonction des coutumes, de l’ethnicité ou de la religiosité, cela demeure tout à fait insuffisant pour nous conduite vers l’harmonie, la paix et la réciprocité universelle. Seule une ligne de conduite et un discours à la fois moins pédant, moralisateur et moins condescendant viendra à bout des problèmes engendrés par la maintenant universelle et omniprésente ethnicisation du discours social.

Comme pour toutes formes de maladies infectieuses ou de cancers, s’attaquer aux symptômes ne mène et ne mènera jamais à rien. C’est à la cause première du mal qu’il faut s’attaquer, à ces vaticinateurs et fabulateurs de tous les temps que sont ces Allah, Mahomet, Yahvé, Jésus-Christ et Bouddha Inc. de tous les temps dont la seule mission aura consisté, et consistera toujours, à asservir des individus, des peuples et des nations entières au pouvoir d’un étatisme économique, politique et religieux de plus en plus virulent et assoiffé de richesses.

Et tous sont égaux devant l’Éternel disait l’Éternel!

The Holy War My Ass

The forever never ending Holy War

MILAN (AP) — Italian police arrested a Moroccan man early Thursday on suspicion of plotting an attack against a Milan synagogue.

Italian anti-terrorism investigators identified the suspect from Internet traffic, including a Facebook page on how to assemble explosives and references in other contexts to holy war, or jihad, a term often used by Islamic extremists against the West.

Authorities confiscated two flags emblazoned with Nazi swastikas at the suspect’s residence, along with computers, USB drives, detailed descriptions of how to build a car bomb and the quantities of chemicals needed to make an explosive.

The suspect appeared to have taken pains to avoid scrutiny, not associating with Islamic fundamentalists and urging users of his Facebook page not to post religious material.
