Weird Universe: Are We Meant To Be Here? (Part 1)

Lasha Darkmoon – Darkmoon Feb 9, 2020

An excursion into the visionary worlds of Blake, Swedenborg, and Leonardo da Vinci. None of these great thinkers would have had any problems believing in a postmortem existence, given that they regarded death as a “continuation of life”.


“The universe is not only stranger than we imagine,
it is stranger than we can imagine.” — Sir Arthur Eddington [1]

PART 1 : Weird Universe

Strange. Weird. Uncanny. Three sensational synonyms to lure us into the bizarre mind worlds of William Blake, Emanuel Swedenborg, and Leonardo da Vinci. Perhaps they will help us to appreciate Hamlet’s observation to his friend Horatio that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in our philosophy [2].
Eminent physicist Sir Arthur Eddington (1882-1944), not content with saying that the universe was unimaginably strange, made the even stranger comment: “Something Unknown is doing something we don’t know what” [3]. Eddington was referring to “the Unknown God”, a conscious entity behind the physical universe—a universe so unimaginably strange that it is beyond the capacity of the human imagination to conceive it.
Both Blake and Swedenborg saw angels and communicated with them on a daily basis. This makes them pretty weird by all accounts. It’s all par for the course, however, in a universe that modern science itself, particularly quantum physics, admits is weirder than any universe that Galileo, Newton, or Darwin could possibly have conceived in their wildest dreams: a universe of virtual particles, dark matter, and extra dimensions in which physicists are creating lasers powerful enough to rip holes in the fabric of reality—a universe consisting of an infinite number of parallel worlds where something can appear out of nothing, where a cat (related to a Mr Shrodinger) can be both alive and dead at the same time, and where, according to the subtitle of a recent book written by two British scientists, “everything that can happen does happen“.
Here we have a multiverse so mindbogglingly strange that not only can time run backwards in it [4], but where those who died in the Holocaust in one universe did not in fact die in another parallel universe. In this particular universe we happen to inhabit, Hitler can indeed be said to have died in his bunker in 1945 after losing World War II. But in another parallel universe, Hitler apparently survived and triumphed—and the Third Reich won a spectacular victory over the Allies, with Churchill and Roosevelt coming to a sticky end.
Wild speculations? Conspiracy theory poppycock? I’m sorry, these are the inevitable corollaries of quantum physics in its most extreme manifestations.
The topics I am about to discuss—angels, demons, and the Cosmic Man as seen in the works of Swedenborg, Blake and Leonardo da Vinci—are small beer in comparison to the ideas outlined above. They are not even a nano-fraction as strange as the world of modern physics. So put your scepticism to one side for a moment and join me on this giddy-go-round of fascinating esoterica. It won’t be time wasted.

The World of William Blake

Take a step with me now into the minds of Blake and Swedenborg and savour their weirdness.  I will deal later with Leonardo who belongs in a different category, much more sober and scientifically advanced compared to any of his contemporaries.  Let’s begin with England’s most mystical poet and painter, William Blake.  Mull over these astonishing words—some would say ravings—and ask yourself, is this man stark raving mad? Either that, or he has eaten the same magic mushrooms as Hieronymus Bosch:
WILLIAM BLAKE:  An Angel came to me and said, O pitiable foolish young man! O horrible! O dreadful state! consider the hot burning dungeon thou art preparing for thyself to all eternity.
[H]e took me thro’ a stable & thro’ a church & down into the church vault at the end of which was a mill; thro’ the mill we went, and came to a cave. down the winding cavern we groped our tedious way till a void boundless as a nether sky appeared us, & we held by the roots of trees and hung over this immensity. I remained with him sitting in the twisted root of an oak, he was suspended in a fungus which hung with the head downward into the deep.
By degrees we beheld the infinite Abyss, fiery as the smoke of a burning city; beneath us at an immense distance was the sun, black but shining round it were fiery tracks on which revolv’d vast spiders, crawling after their prey; & the air was full of them, & seemd composed of them; these are Devils. and are called Powers of the air.
My friend the Angel climb’d up from his station into the mill; but I found myself sitting on a pleasant bank beside a river by moon light hearing a harper who sung to the harp. & his theme was, The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, & breeds reptiles of the mind.
I have always found that Angels have the vanity to speak of themselves as the only wise; this they do with a confident insolence sprouting from systematic reasoning.
Thus Swedenborg boasts that what he writes is new; tho’ it is only the Contents or Index of already publish’d books. Now hear a plain fact: Swedenborg has not written one new truth: Now hear another: he has written all the old falsehoods.
And now hear the reason. He conversed with Angels who are all religious, & conversed not with Devils who all hate religion, for he was incapable thro’ his conceited notions. Thus Swedenborgs writings are a recapitulation of all superficial opinions.
Have now another plain fact: Any man of mechanical talents may from the writings of Paracelsus or Jacob Behmen, produce ten thousand volumes of equal value with Swedenborg’s. and from those of Dante or Shakespeare, an infinite number.
But when he has done this, let him not say that he knows better than his master, for he only holds a candle in sunshine.
(Emphasis added and ellipses omitted)
Let’s treasure those memorable words: “A CANDLE IN SUNSHINE.”  The purport of Blake’s message is this:  all the scientific knowledge we have acquired since man invented the wheel is no more than a candle in sunshine. Human knowledge is a drop in an infinite ocean. It is the realm of the Known.  The rest of the ocean, stretching away infinitely beyond the reach of the human mind, is the Unknown and Unknowable.
Referring to the Unknown and the Unknowable, these modest words of Charles Darwin to his American friend Asa Gray strike a chord: “A dog might as well speculate on the mind of Newton. Let each man hope & believe what he can.”
There will always be something God knows that no one else knows.

One cannot help wondering what the devoutly Christian Newton, who spent more time  on Biblical exegesis than he did on the scientific discoveries for which he is better known, would have made of Christ’s contradictory dictum: “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known.” [5]

Blake and the Doctrine of Salvation through Sex

Christian Rossetti (1830-1894), my favourite female poet, spent most of her life longing for heaven, sick to death of existence in this vale of tears. It can be said without exaggeration that Christina, like many Christian saints before her [6], regarded life on earth not so much as a complete waste of time but as a cross to be borne, a via dolorosa or sorrowful journey over tough terrain en route to one’s final destination in paradise. Let’s now consider what Miss Rossetti, chaste Victorian virgin with her head in the clouds all day, poring over the works of Plato and Dante, would have made of the bizarre visions of William Blake and his eccentric predecessor Emanuel Swedenborg.
The lovely Christina (pictured here) was a pious Anglican Christian who attended regular church services, as Darwin himself did for the first 40 years of his life. She would have completely rejected the heretical fringe Christianity of William Blake, a Christianity rooted in the esoteric teachings of Swedish mystic Emmanuel Swedenborg. Though Blake launches a fierce attack on Swedenborg in the long passage quoted above, he was, paradoxically, a member of the Swedenborg Church in London.  If I mention Christina Rossetti and Darwin in the same breath as Blake and Swedenborg, it is not because I am straying from the point—it is simply to drive home the point that Christianity, like Hinduism and Buddhism, is, so to speak,  an extremely “broad church” accommodating within its ranks so many different sects and sub-sects that none would seem to have anything in common apart from a core religiosity that recognises the transcendence of the Logos — the idea that the universe, however incomprehensible, is rationally ordered and shows evidence of design and purpose. [7]
In a sense, Blake and Swedenborg were different sides of the same coin; and Blake’s paintings as well as his poetry were heavily dependent on the work of the Swedish mystic who had flourished in the previous century and died 15 years before Blake was born. (See Part 2 for more on Swedenborg).
Another reason Christina Rossetti would have run a mile if she’d ever been introduced to Blake, is that she was sexually inhibited to a fantastic degree, living the austere life of a nun, whereas Blake believed passionately in free love and tantric sex with multiple partners. Ecstatic sex was Blake’s entrance ticket to heaven on earth, and he advocated it openly as a way of union with God. Taking multiple concubines within marriage met with his full approval, as well as sexual threesomes in which his wife was theoretically welcome to partake as a blissful spectator—watching him sport with a nubile young beauty on an adjacent couch and achieve her own version of nirvana thereby.
Whether William Blake (1757-1827) actually practised what he preached is not clear, but he fervently advocated the most uninhibited sexuality. Had he been a Jew, he would almost certainly have been a disciple of Sabbatai Zevi , the self-proclaimed false Messiah of the Jews, who believed in salvation through sex.
Sabbatai Zevi (1627-1676)  was later denounced as a “manic-depressive” by Jewish academic philosopher Gershom Scholem who felt that Zevi was bringing Judaism into disrepute by his misguided attempt to spiritualise lust. It is doubtful if the sex-obsessed Blake, however, would have gone so far as to subscribe to the more extreme version of Zevi’s Sabbatianism, advocated by Zevi’s disciple Jacob Frank (1776-1791), who went on to preach “salvation through sin”. Far from regarding his sexual cavortings as “sinful”, Blake would have celebrated them as holy. He would have sung “Halleluiah!” every time he achieved an orgasm with an equally enthusiastic partner, both seeking divinity through sexual delight. As Adam and Eve wandered naked through the Earthly Paradise before the Fall, plucking fruit from the trees of Eden, they decided one day to pluck the Forbidden Fruit of sex. The rest we know.
According to Blake’s philosophy, Eve was right to listen to the wily Serpent; and Adam was equally right to succumb to her irresistible charms. This is the philosophy of tantric yoga, and it is also the philosophy underlying Sabbatianism. It is hedonism pushed to an extreme, in which sexual pleasure is seen as much more than a consolation for life’s inadequacies and becomes rather a sacred obligation leading to enlightenment and union with God.
Dangerous? Of course. That goes without saying. These toxic ideas, far from being dead relics of the past, swirl around us today like incandescent mind viruses. They have brought us to where we are right now: into  the midst of a roaring inferno. These edgy ideas, needless to say, would have been totally anathema to St Augustine with his doctrine of “concupiscence” — a technical term he was the first to use. [8]. They would have clashed with his basic core idea, on which orthodox Christianity is based, that Lust was the Original Sin (peccatum originale) of our First Parents, whether literally or allegorically, and that all subsequent generations are the products of primal lust, tainted even by the sanctioned sex of the marriage bed. Lust, according to Augustine, is the invariable concomitant of every act of sex; which would not be possible “without the ardor of lust”.  It is this self-evident proposition that makes man, in Augustine’s own words, “a lump of sin” — massa peccati.
“The problem,” according to a highly respected recent commentator on these ethico-theological minutiae, “is that even the most legitimate form of sexual intercourse—between a husband and wife mutually bent on engendering a child—is also corrupt. The current of sinfulness that courses through it is precisely the mechanism that carries the stain of evil from one generation to the next and infects the dreams of those most determined to keep themselves pure and chaste. Human sinfulness is a sexually transmitted disease.” [9]

From “Salvation Through Sex” to “Do What Thou Wilt”

It’s one small step from “salvation through sex” to anything goes.
Note that Jacob Frank’s bizarre doctrine of “salvation through sin”, later adopted by Aleister Crowley and his band of Satanists —”DO WHAT THOU WILT SHALL BE THE WHOLE OF THE LAW!—entered the dark stream of Judaism where it was  euphemistically known as  “purification through transgression.” [10]
One must take care be not to be bamboozled by all of Blake’s seemingly sage pronouncements. Some of them frankly border on lunacy. What would you think of someone who advised you to strangle a baby in its cradle if you wished to experience an unforgettable high? Blake does this.  “It is better to strangle an infant in its cradle than to nurse an ungratified desire,” he advises us wackily. A doctrine that would certainly win plaudits from one class of criminal psychopath: the homicidal pedophile.
However silly you might consider such a maxim, Blake will attempt to silence you with the equally wacky maxim, “If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise.”
“The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom,” to quote our eccentric seer again, but how many of us would choose to achieve wisdom through child murder?

“It is better to strangle an infant in the cradle
than to nurse an ungratified desire.” — William Blake

A word of caution. It can be plausibly argued that Blake did not intend his “Proverbs of Hell” to be taken seriously by the “children of light” but only by the “children of darkness”, the many deluded souls who belong, so to speak, to the Devil’s party.
One would have to be a full-fledged Satanist to believe that strangling babies is okay as a cure for depression and because it gives you a fantastic dopamine high. Blake himself admits that it is devils in hell who think like this, precisely because they are deluded and serve “the Father of Lies”; and humans, too, presumably, who have been infected by the same virus of diabolical evil.
“As I was walking among the fires of hell,” Blake recalls matter-of-factly, “I collected some of their Proverbs…” [11]
So that’s all right then.

  1. Remember Wiliam Blake was a master mason and he exposed some of its deepest secrets
    e.g. that jesus was an Englishman, ” did those feet in ancient times walk on englands etc etc ” When the romans came this country it was already old and had univesities back then. Robert Bolt on examining the Shroud of Turin said this man is a fair haired Anglo Saxon.
    Real scripture says the real chosen people are the blonde haired blue eyed Anglo saxons of Germany and England, this is the master stroke of the jew to set these nations at each others throats twice in one century.
    Hieronymous Bosch was able to enter the astral worlds and bring back his memories
    and paint them, Pasre Pio could do the same thing.
    Isaac Newton was first and foremost an Astrologer, every US president since W W 2 has had astrologers, and in the UK Toerag Tony and Cherie did nothing without consulting several of these soothsayers, Winston Churchill was so out of his depth with matters of state that John Colvile his main secretary said things worked beter when he got drunk and left things to us, Churchill had a whole team of occultists.
    Swedenborg certainly was able to communicate with higher intelligences, but whether these were angels is debatable.
    But yes as the master said ” in my house there are many mansions”
    manby layers of reality, never forget this is the world of illusion

  2. “What we know is a drop. What we do not know is an ocean.”- Newton

    Both Isaac Newton and John Locke were good friends. Also, they were devote Christians who contemplated the presence of God both in all our physical surroundings and human relations. Our thimble-size minds can only contain a small portion of the ocean-size presence and knowledge of God. Yet, if we cleanse our hearts and our souls and seek God with all we got, we are filled to over capacity and beyond any limits we can comprehend. We need just to taste a little of that ocean which is his ocean of peace and love to contemplate the greatness and goodness of God. That is our ultimate purpose in this life and is the bridge to eternal life, which without the death and rising of his true image in our hearts and minds, we remain lost.

  3. Beautiful, dear and insightful Fred. Thank you. So very poignant and precious. I will, as always, continue to be faithful with what I have received and imbibed, in preparation to receive the glories which are yet to come. (Luke 16:10)

  4. When you ask a rhetorical question like “Weird Universe: Are We Meant To Be Here?” the obvious answer is no. When you study the human condition the obvious answer is hell no. The unfortunate problem that Darkmoon is having (in my opinion) is she is operating in the culture bubble that has defined reality that can not possibly be correct.

    Many people who go through a great awakening as she seems to be, get their minds blown once the cultural reality bubble is popped. You see these people with bumper stickers (in the states) that say “QUESTION REALITY” and many have Grateful Dead bumper stickers of dancing bears and such. Usually they are taking mouthfuls of psychoactive drugs that literally blow their mind. Many do not recover and end up on the street in total disrepair unable to cope with “reality”.

    Fortunately a disciplined mind like Lasha Darkmoon is going to hold her consciousness together as she explores the new reality she just stepped into. Her articles have the same vibe that I went through back in 1995 when I started my own transition out of the Judean hell scape. Good luck to her and her adventure.

    If you grow up like most people and are taught the Christian-Judean values that God created you and everything and upon death you go to heaven or hell depending if you follow the rules we set before you – and if you are are like most people you have little chance of escaping that mindset that is reinforced by every media outlet and the IRS.

    If you are one of the lucky (or unlucky depending on your perspective) the spirit chooses to activate you and you awaken in the Jew hell matrix. Things are not right, it shouldn’t be this way. Why does God allow us to suffer, is God really just? you might ask yourself. The first step to recovery from the hellish Jewish mental state is to question God and not be like Henry Makow who is still stuck with the same Jew construct of God having switched from the Jew hell of Judaism to the new Jew hell of Christianity. We’ll see if Darkmoon has the mettle in her to escape the trap of “Christ insanity”.

    What if everything we’ve been taught is completely wrong? What if the Universe is really a fractal holographic simulation? What would god be but the computer programmer of this fake reality, and if a machine is running this realm then would it care if we suffer. Are we just sentient programs collecting data for the matrix programmers? Well to find out chunk your faith and all preconceived notions taught to you by the idiots that came before you and follow the evidence.

    I have nothing but contempt for those lived before me that just repeated the myth over and over with each generation until now when the myth is completely ridiculous. A Jew savior? Uh huh. No one question the absurdity of the idea that a Jew could save us? So for nearly 2,000 years the western culture of sheeple just went along with that program and now – look at where we are now – in some real hell because the Jews were able to take over Europeans who let them do so without a peep.

    As long as we believe the prevailing myth we will be ok with suffer as a test from god. As I patiently explain in this epic essay the belief in Christ empowers evil because everyone thinks that our suffering is a test from god, and thus do not challenge evil and stamp it out:

  5. Poor Jack. He is still wandering around in the cold with no where to go. Christians are only in a sense part of the Jewish tribe and some of us perhaps in trying to get them to wake up to Christ who came from their tribe, sometimes call ourselves “true Jews”, meaning that with Christ there was an entirely new and final and complete covenant which all the others mainly foreshadowed. For those who followed the Sanhedrin to reject him are now simply about 2000 years out of step. However, the door is still open for all their descendants, until at last the conductor will say, “All aboard!”, but they better hurry and get on quick to get a good seat and before it is too late.

    For those who like Jack think that Christianity is a Jewish plot, all they have to do is read St. Paul, and start with Romans, to discovery how genuine he was. Christianity is about reversals of worldly values together with beliefs which those who rejected Christ could not stomach. It was simply too hard for them. Those who chose the pursuit of riches, pleasures and power instead, now do appear to be chosen to have it, for that is for which they have traded their birthright, but they will never find eternal life in such pursuits even if they gain the entire world and we end up being their slaves. Jesus taught that those who lose their life will find it, none of which non believers cannot comprehend.

    What probably ticks off a lot of the unconverted Jews the most is that we gentiles actually stole not only their holy scripture together even with their expectation of a saving Messiah. Here we go interpreting all of their holy writ through the life and teachings of the son they rejected, and that must really irk them. We say that it must be the case that salvation came from God through the Jews until it was finished on the cross where from there it exploded to all mankind. It was and remains a most special divine honor and gift to be made and chosen for such a a universal purpose. No other tribe or people ever produced or preserved such wisdom and holy praise of the one God, which are the holy templates and oral icons, or windows, to divine contemplation.

    Jack, was St. Paul genuine in his faith in Christ or was he just a Jewish trickster to make us gentiles weak so they could take over the world? Read the following before you answer.

    Romans 8:35-39
    Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Trial, or distress, or persecution, or hunger, or nakedness, or persecution, or the sword? As Scripture says: ““For Your sake we are being slain all the day long: we are looked upon as seep to be slaughtered.” Yet in all of this we are more than conquerors because of Him who loved us. For I am certain that neither death, nor life, neither angels, nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor powers, neither height nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able to separate us from the love of God, that comes to us in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

  6. @ Fred B There is a modern saying meme that has emerged in the debate between the skeptics and believers “there is not a single religion that can survive two words – “prove it””.

    You said “with Christ there was an entirely new and final and complete covenant which all the others mainly foreshadowed.”

    Covenant? Prove it. There is no god making covenants with man – that is your belief and it is not provable, thus it is a fantasy in your mind having no revelance except as how you construct reality. My linked essay talks about this, your covenant is a form of intellectual dishonesty – for you.

    You said “but they better hurry and get on quick to get a good seat and before it is too late.”

    Too late for what? Rapture? Salvation? Sorry neither is true, if you want to prove to me that I need salvation please quote some source outside the Bible or give me rock solid logic and reasonings that there’s some judgmental god that I need fear. You can’t, nobody can and thus once again such a thought is just part of your delusion – your religious overlay on reality.

    Then you said “For those who like Jack think that Christianity is a Jewish plot”. Wow! Dude you simply are illiterate on the origin of your faith. Go read the numerous books on how the Christ fiction was created from previous sun god religions – they plagiarized word for word. Read ‘Caesar’s Messiah’ by Joseph Atwill on how the JEW Josephus wrote the Gospels for Rome. My God you are walking around in pure ignorance about the very history of how and why Christianity was invented by Rome to get the Judeans to convert to a good religion for the Roman state.

    Furthermore you are in complete denial that the Jew-Zeus aka Jesus came to save his people the Jews. That is why Josephus invented the new sun god character as a Jewish man because the target audience was the Jews that the Romans were at war with.

    The Gospels were all written AFTER Rome torched Jerusalem in 70 A.D., the timeline which nearly every Christian has gotten wrong. Atwill PROVES the timeline as post dated 40 years from actual events. For instance when you read that Jesus went down to the Sea of Galilee to recruit fishers of men that was a real historic event of Titus (Jesus) who battled the Judeans at that sea and fished their bodies out the water. Amazing stuff that you ought to read and clear your mind of the myth that possesses your brain.

    But alas, do you care or will you read something rational about your faith? Probably not because as I often say “faith is the green pasture where you put your mind to rest”.


  7. Everyone needs to wake up from the naughty Jewish God Spell that was cast on your mind.

    Fred B. and his cadre of believers has no idea what is being said in Romans 8:35-39, let me translate the little deceptive game being played on your mind.

    Let us analyze what is being asserted about LOVE in Romans 8

    “Who will separate us from the love of Christ? … blah, blah, blah … will be able to separate us from the love of God, that comes to us in Christ Jesus, our Lord.”

    LOVE is real, we all experience LOVE. Christ is not real, Christ is theocratic fiction. In Romans verse the Christ meme is being asserted OVER love. Love is a real thing, but the fake sun god fiction is being put onto and in a superior position of a real thing called LOVE.

    This is obvious to anyone that knows love but does not believe in a god. Anyone can love, anyone including the most tribal man in the depths of the jungle can have a heart full of love yet never has heard of the fiction called Christ Jesus.

    In fact many a missionary possessed by the Jew hell religion of Christianity has met real love when meeting the off-the-grid natives who were in cheerful love state BEFORE the missionary arrived with the JEW HELL BOOK.

    The supreme intellectual mistake of the believer is to equate some Jew god with love. Love is completely independent of any religion, it exists before man exists, it will live on when man blows himself to kingdom come over his religious differences. Love is real and religion is fiction – very bad fiction in fact.

    You can be in rapturous love and never hear or care about the Christ. The spell of the Gospels is to convince you that if you want love you have to go through the Christ filter. This is plain as day obvious to any sane normal person who doesn’t drag the ball and chain Jew Bible around preaching love of god. As if the hell god described in the Bible has anything to do with love!

    I wrote this tongue in cheek essay just to illustrate how ridiculous all this God love talk is when you can experience real love with a real woman.

    “It seems to me you should choose love over God. I’m serious. Love is better than God, love is better than the Bible, love is better than church, love is better than television programming, love is better than all our material possessions, love is better than the space pricks who created the authority on earth, love is better than the authors of the Bible and their evil god that they claim is love.”

    This essay slams the believers claim that their religious hate is love:

    “Any person subscribing to any Abrahamic religion exists in a state of hate – and here’s the irony – they don’t even know it – they are so far gone in their self hate they actually might think their religion is love! People actually believe that whoreshipping a dead bloody Jew on a cross is the highest expression of love! Insanity at its finest – no Jew died for you, that is the biggest laugh in the Universe!




    Truth is love. Teaching myth as truth is hate. Real love is telling the truth about our actual situation. Love embraces the truth, those that hate us also hate truth, they operate in deception and it all starts with religion. Religion is the deception that gets a normal gentle loving human being to hate the truth and support the lies that make war possible.”

  8. Nice going Yukon Jack! I agree with you. I don’t have your patience to deal with those irrational fairy tale worshipers. No wonder this world is so fucked up. Waiting for some fictitious saviour to come on the scene and fix everything is absolute Christ insanity. Bullshit baffles brains.

    Notice Yukon Jack how most of those “faithful believers” will rarely give you credit where credit is due if you’re not part of their cult. Rather than strive to be objective, they prefer nice comforting words that reasonate with their childhood indoctrination…

  9. Well Jack, what about the religion of materialism where people believe all reality goes no further than material reality, or that mind, knowing and consciousness is just a function of our brains? Those are beliefs as steadfastly held by some as any religious ones by others, but entirely the opposite from theistic ones and they cannot be proven according to your standards either. As for empiricism being the foundation for the shallow faith of the West, how can you accept the experiences of others for what you want to believe in and then on the other hand reject the validity of the experiences of those who have actually had miracles in their lives, which go against your beliefs?

    If you have never witnessed the power and love of God in your life, that does not discount any of graces of those who have, and that being the case, would you not do better to hold that you simply do not know, rather to say what others believe to be so wonderful not to be true? You cannot prove according to your science or logic that God does not exist any more than you can prove that reality is limited to your own understanding.

    Find me anywhere and anyone who lived the same or even a similar life to that of Jesus Christ, who unified all of strands and prophecies of an ancient faith into his own person and became on one hand a willing victim, in utter selflessness, and on the other said the most remedial things ever said for our good. Your answer is no doubt to prove that he even existed. Well, I like to think he exists in me and in others from time to time, all of which you call a fantasy. So I put it to you that if you do not even think he existed then for you to find even an equivalent story of any human being, whether fictitious or not, whose life, teachings, and example went right to the core of all our problems, namely our human selfishness, and who gave the cure? Or if you say you that except for the fantasies or lies which you think you see, but you really believe in a divine being or consciousness, then I suggest you simply pray to be be led to the truth.

    Why I say people better get “on board” it is not because of the so-called rapture or the end times. What really matters is an examined life and when one makes no effort to connect to or to know God, one does so at their own impoverishment and peril. If the nature of God is really ultimate and everlasting love and peace which we can taste of in this life, but we fail to even try to do so in our pursuits and dealings with others, then how can we ever be receptive to that nature when we come to our own ends? Such is not only an unexamined life but an unprepared one, where you may be isolated in a narrow consciousness or soul of your own devices, makings and limitations, perhaps even for an eternity. Time is running out Jack.

  10. The idea that universe is beautiful and wants to be discovered and show its beauty to everyone and that the more you see and look for, the more you discover and the universe will show more of itself, is materialistic to the core! To the contrary, much of truth is well hidden and under various layers of covers, one has to earn the right to discover them! The first of the covers involves logical separation, you need to see every duality and ditch the false one.

    Some examples:

    1- Heat and Cold – if we define heat as vibration of particles, then it is known that one can’t have anything colder than -273 C or absolute zero, it seems particles won’t completely stop vibrating! On the hand you can have as much heat as you want even hotter than the core of a star! So this is one line of existence on which we define a duality.

    2- Light and Dark – if no part of space is empty of electromagnetic radiations, then there is no such a thing as absolute darkness, we simply call dark what is not visible to our eyes. In essence these are relative terms defined again on one line of existence.

    3- We can see a similar situation with other concepts such as Absolute and Relative, you could say: “Nothing is absolute!”, but then you would mean that absolutely nothing is absolute. Similarly everything is relative, that by itself is an absolute statement. Everything is uncertain! Then that by itself is claimed to be clear and certain! These examples may seem like playing with words, but they reveal just how much monotheism/singularity/unity is seeded within our minds!

    So my friends, Logic or reasoning be it deductive or inductive, is in the service of “approach” and your “accepted truths/priori/assumptions”. For instance one who believes in the judgment day find it logical to prepare for it. Another example, one who believes in quantum theory find it reasonable to consider electrons as particles.

    The tree of knowledge grows in some ground. That ground matters, not every kind of tree can grow and bear fruit in just about every ground and climate. In western/materialistic tree of knowledge, math, logos, geometry and the abstract are all under the ground these are in the mind and can be considered as the roots or the metaphysics; the main trunk of that tree is Physics/nature/Physis with all the branches of knowledge; the fruit is technology and the leaves are art. This is a useful parable. One who has PhD or Philosophy of Doctorate means that he has dominance and understanding over one of the branches of that tree all the way to the roots and is able to make his own new branches/fruits/leaves.

    The ground on which western tree of knowledge has grown out of, is “existence” and its seed that all of this sprouted from is the origin, this is the seed of self-awareness. We must agree that your seed and ours is the same, we have the same faculties as humans… it is the approach and the ground/climate in which we are “planted” that defines what grows out of us! The only parallel universe that I came across is the many minds of all humans simultaneously and independently witnessing as they will and freely.

    Speaking of playing with words: let us talk about belief and knowledge:

    So belief is all bad and knowledge is all good! This is one of the big myths! Consider the following example
    1- I see it is raining. How? See with my eyes, feel it with my skin, hear the sound, etc…
    2- I know it is raining. How? See with my eyes. Someone told me. I heard it in the news, etc…
    3- I believe it is raining. How? See with my eyes. Someone I trust told me. I have a gut-feeling it must be raining, etc…

    The first one is the act of seeing/witnessing and is the best condition, if we see it through our faculties, reasoning, math, etc…, then it is the truth! Second and third though can both be “blindly”, but they can also be based on real perception.

    “Blind-knowledge” is when you read something or are told something but you still don’t “see” how, you may have limited understanding/perception but still you don’t see the entire picture. It can be useful and also it can be bad depending on the context and situation.

    “Blind-belief” is when you trust something or someone but you still don’t know for sure, in fact what does “don’t know for sure” mean? It means you don’t see it, one should not play with words and confuse one’ self! Blind-belief can be bad or good depending on the situation and context.

    In fact we use blind-belief regularly… i.e. You are sick, two of your close friends tell you to go see some particular doctor that they vouch for, there is also a certificate on the wall behind this doctor and he tells you to take such and such medicine and avoid a few things to get better. So you blindly-believe the doctor and do as he says and use his knowledge blindly. If you don’t you have only one option to spend many years and study the field to “see” for yourself! By the time though your immediate illness may have long killed you! Therefore blindly-believing here is a logical stance! and not doing so would be irrational.

    So now what is the real difference between belief and knowledge? Check out this example:

    – You know that zombies don’t exist but you still wouldn’t stay the night next to a dead body!

    Why? because you don’t believe! blind-Knowledge is not enough! However believing whether blindly or with clarity will move you! Now the key neglected part here is this: If knowledge is with seeing and clarity it is also believing! Knowledge can be written in books and buried outside of us, one can argue that beliefs too can be written and buried outside of us. The key point here is not to be confused by words and variables. The word belief has “drive” and “intention” in it. Essentially we humans can only see and believe, knowledge is just some messed up term in the middle to confuse us in my opinion!

    Obviously “seeing” is done through other ways than just with our material eyes.

    This is getting way longer than I thought and I have no energy left to go throughout it all to look for possible errors.
