They say the first man was Adam. It is likely that it was. Man is mind, the first monkey to receive revelation from the contemplation of fire, was called Adam. Then Adam found a wife and her name was eve. Eve admired and believed in her husband, and took from him his vision of the world. The mind gave Adam greater force and power, he became head of tribe and priest. The tribe quickly gained power and subdued other tribes. This couple had many children, which parents have got power, the beginnings of perfection and reason. Mind gave these people power and they became the dominant species, gradually began to control the whole world.
The emergence of metals is associated with religious rituals of communion with the power of the earth. The symbol of the victory of the God of fire over the chaos of the underworld. Take the ore, crush it (the principle of "divide and conquer"), then sacrifice it to the fire, burning out her sins. After cleansing, from sins remain clean metals and different alloys.
God created the human mind. The sacred fire, sent down by God to the earth, taught people to make flint weapons, to hunt, to fish, to eat fried food. The cult of grain opened the idea of burials, temples, sedentary lifestyle, cloth, bread, cereals and legumes. The cult of truth and reason created science. Thoughts of God have taught man to think. Attempts to communicate with God created writing and art.
The symbol of the coffin is associated with the symbol of the butterfly and the idea that death is the rebirth of the caterpillar into a butterfly. A coffin or sarcophagus is a pupa from which the soul, being reborn, turns from a man into a winged angel. Flowers at the funeral is also about butterflies, victory over death and rebirth.
It's faith what created the human reason. It's faith in reason what made humans start building temples, invent labor, settle down, master industrial economy and agriculture, start creating, not only consuming.
Writing was invented to record the words of God, so as not to forget or distort the words of God. God doesn't talk to people that often and there was a need to keep the divine revelations in mind. The words of God brought law and order into the world, became the Foundation of society and the state.
It is said that European civilization stands on the Foundation of Greek philosophy. But the Foundation of Greek philosophy is the philosophy of Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Vedas and Zoroastrianism. And even the traditions of Judaism stem from the same roots. It is said that Moses was taught the wisdom of Egypt, and Abraham was a connoisseur of the wisdom of Mesopotamia.
When a person comes to Church, he does not come to God, but to his wife, whose mission is to comfort and compassion. The Church relieves the pain and gives strength to man to find reason and to realize the realization of God. Those who took advantage of this opportunity, we call the chosen.
First came the priests, who gave power to the leaders and tyrants. Then the priests turned into philosophers who raised emperors. Afterwards, when philosophy died ... there were people who we now call psychologists, psychotherapists, managers, leaders, clergymen and all that sort of thing.
If right understanding of idols and idolatry, we should realize that the worship of human reason does not deny love and attention to his body, liver, heart, muscles, etc. the Main thing to remember is that idol should be useful and beautiful, and it is always less than the whole and total. Moreover, the heart is no better than the liver, and the brain is no better than the rectum.
Monkeys have always had at least four idols... The most cowardly prayed to the bear, for he was terribly afraid. The wood was praying at the tree. The weakest, who were driven away from the tree, began to pray for the cow and the bull, for they saved them from hunger. Well, the most visionary began to pray to the fire, for they noticed that love and passion are the strongest.
Initially the monkey prayed for the tree, because the tree fed it. Then a lightning struck the tree and it burned down. Thus the monkey realized that the real God was this fire. However, many idolaters still pray for the trees, so we call them wooden and oak-headed fools. Smart people are those who pray for love, that is, for fire. However, those who are enlightened know more than anyone else.
Before the invention of fire, monkeys mostly ate sweet fruits, which did not contribute to the development of intelligence in them. Excess sugar is bad for socialization and the ability to focus. By reducing the consumption of sugar, the monkey became calmer and was able to focus attention, that is, learned to love and think. Concentration is love.
Having carefully studied from the viewpoint of Cybernetics and system logic all on the planet earth religion, philosophy and science, I came to the conclusion that they are all right and saying the same thing, just different words, and sometimes by accenting, then some, in other parts of the whole.
The state was created by God. God promised people to save them from the devil, that is, from fear. The state is an institution for the service of God, providing functions such as science and education, order and roads, protection and ritual facilities. The God that serves the whole state, is very strong and can protect its subjects from anyone.
The meaning of any religion is to turn a slave into a free man. Freedom is joyful, all religions offer freedom. The problem is, slaves don't need freedom, addicts just need drugs. Religion promises freedom from dependence, and slaves are interested only in Paradise, joy and bliss.
The concept of salvation in Christianity is salvation from slavery. The slaves of idols and vices desire freedom. Christianity promises freedom to those who are willing to repent and change their minds.
Religion is a social institution aimed at canning socio-economic relations. The poor should remain poor and the rich should be rich. The main aim of this institution is to reduce tensions in society. Religious philosophy was made to maintain peace in society and give people consolation and strength for living in this society.
The essence of religion is in consoling people and reducing tensions.
Sectionalism. Its essence is in using a person to its advantage while giving this person something nice in return, be itlove, happiness, calmness or confidence. While the sect itself takes a person's money, time or skills...
The essence of sectionalism is in giving what people need in return for what a sect needs.
Philosophy. Philosophy in its pure clear state is aimed at giving a particular person or particular people STRENGTH to live. Philosophy teaches a person to live and gives strength to live. Philosophy makes a person free, allowing to break «the bonds of slavery». It teaches how to survive in this world of slaves and titans. Philosophy turns slaves into noble strong people. Philosophy makes noble strong people powerful enough to stand up to the power of titans.
Philosophy doesn't give bread and fish but it teaches how to fish and make bread. Philosophy doesn't console but gives strength to live and struggle. Philosophy gives a person the power of wisdom and true grit. Philosophy brings freedom and breaks bonds of mind.
Religious books are usually written by people of great wisdom. You read them and read...and see it's all nonsense nonsense and nonsense...and then just a single line, a thought of 'diamond wisdom'. A wonderful, right thought that simply gets imprinted in your mind. It's like light, like a revelation. You'll never forget this thought. It will always remain in your mind and be the light in the dark.
Besides, as far as I'm concerned, authors do it on purpose when they consciously put this light of wisdom into nonsense. It's a contrast that makes wisdom seem so brilliant that it won't be forgotten. You may feel yourself a hunter. You wander through the dark jungle of obscurantism and look for some light. And suddenly you find it... It's such a pleasure and happiness to find light among the dark jungle.
I've also noticed that authors of such books have a great sense of moderation and harmony as they delicately put the diamonds of wisdom in the text- not too frequently and not too rarely. It's not in every line but as soon as you get a bit tired, you suddenly see it in the text and it makes you joyful and enthusiastic about keeping on reading. And thus, you wander through the dark jungle from one thought to another and feel yourself a hunter and every new catch brings you joy. It's not only a hero who is joyful, as Nietzsche once said. But it's also a hunter who is joyful as well.
Any hunt is always about searching, being excited and expending some effort. An easy catch never brings joy. While something too hard to get makes one lazy and passive.
Isolationism. Old idols stand by the sea and watch people in order to control their life.
Policy of expansion. Old gods are broken. New gods are being constructed- gods of the volcano. These gods symbolize rebellions and destruction of old views. New idols look to the outer world, to the ocean in order to leave their volcano towards the shore.
Old gods are gods of the sea. Gods who control the system from the outside. New gods are gods of the volcano. Gods who symbolize an explosion and a protest agains external goals. These people look for freedom and finally find it... However, an excess of freedom never leads to anything good.
People's rebellion against gods, people lose fear and faith, new idols demand expansion. Meaningless expansion exhausts resources. As usual, everything ends badly.
It is believed that the enlightenment of Christ occurred when he was not 33 years old, but 40, and he was born in the 6th year BC. Figure 40 is a mystical figure, is a figure of the ripening of the mind of the Torah and the Vedas.
The Egyptian word "light" was placed by Moses in the ark of the Covenant. The metaphorical verb of light is a symbol of eternal movement, inexhaustible energy of life. Christ turned this word into a living light, and the candles that Christians light in churches are an echo of this word of truth. Fire, as a symbol of movement, is that which lives while it moves.
Interestingly, the symbol of the Torah was the bull, and the symbol of Rama was the symbol of Aries, which we can trace in such terms as the Golden fleece, the shepherd and his flock. The symbol of the bull is the Golden calf, a symbol of energy and strength. The bull is stronger than the RAM, but the RAM has a Golden fleece, however, the Golden calf is also not poor.
In the Christian conception of the father, the son, and the Holy Ghost, the father is the sun, the son is fire, and the Holy Ghost is the mind, which, having known God, has learned to control fire and the sun, benefiting from them and avoiding harm.
Although technically Christianity is a worshiper of God, which order, and opposed to the devil that chaos, however... Western civilization honors freedom. Freedom is another name for chaos, that is, the devil. Uniting, order and chaos give birth to harmony, that is, what Eastern religions recognize as the main value.
Medieval Inquisition and the practice of anti-witch that was trying to clean the society from the heresy of paganism. Many people, especially women, tend to mystical-pagan thinking, belief in idols, signs and signs. All these ideas are very contagious and are transmitted, including from mother to son, from wife to husband. This whole situation is not happy, so the witch decided to get rid of the strongest.
Christianity absorbed a mass of legends from previous religions, primarily from Zoroastrianism., They took the legend of the flood from ancient Shumers, they took the rest from the cult of Mitra (1st century B.C. There`s an opinion that the cult was invented in the ancient Rome after Zoroastrianism and Greek cults of God of the Sun - Helios. The cult was widespread in the Roman army). The Christian philosophy is based on platonism and stoicism.
The ignorant are poor in spirit, like stem cells. These people feel what the system needs, do what is necessary and should, becoming organs of the body of being... The knowledgeable (we call them the enlightened, the Brahmins, the Buddhas, the saints) are essentially the gray cells of the brain.
Religion is the opium of the people. The use of religion as a source of bliss, consolation against pain and medicine against fear, turns people into addicts, addictive and withdrawal. The enlightened use religion differently from a source of pleasure, but as a source of truth and power.
Religion perfectly heals neurosis, conquering fear, referring to the most important authority of this world. If you're good, the doctor tells you, don't be afraid, everything will be fine. When God loves you, a person who no one else loves, the soul is joyful.
They say Christianity is a slave religion. I do not agree, on the contrary, Christianity is a religion of freedom and strength of spirit. The fact that there are a huge number of slaves among the adherents of Christianity is a sign that Christianity promises people freedom. Slaves were before Christianity, and Christianity promises them freedom. Slaves become Christians in the hope of freedom. Some succeed, many do not. Man becomes free himself, religion can only support him morally in this desire.
They say religion is the opium of the people. Not exactly. Religion is heroin, which was invented as a cure for opium to treat drug addicts. But cunning addicts have noticed that heroin is a better drug than opium.
