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

PUBLISHED ON TRUTHSEEKER

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 Schrödinger) 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 rough 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 Emanuel 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 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. “Are we meant to be here?”

    According to the Gnostics… “NO!!!”

    (ADMIN: The Gnostics are being dealt with in Part 2).

    1. Donaldo has an insight on parallel universe. It works like an electronic circuit for all folks. For every decision that a person has made in life there is a counter-decision with different results. After finishing college, a man married his high-schools sweetheart Sue. He father’s 4 children and life goes on before he tragically dies in an automobile accident in 1957. But actually he decided after highschool to enlist in the army. Before deployment he meets and impregnates a young woman named Shirley. They have only 1 child before Shirley dies of breast cancer at age 30. BOTH men actually lived and their decisions, + and – on the circuit board created multiple different realities…… universes. Donaldo married a Thai prostitute in 1995. No children. But wait, actually he chose college in 1986 and married a blond American girl and fathered 4 children while serving as an officer in the US Navy. BOTH men and the results of their decisions DO exist today. But in parallel universe. Dreams are the connection between the universes. Donaldo has often, during the night, been known to utter “Te amo…..I love you….to a woman he never knew. And to ask about children that don’t, supposedly, exist. There are indeed parallel universe. Very creepy. But, alas, this is life. Asi es la vida. 🤔🧐😎

    1. I don’t believe in any of this claptrap. How can you believe in “Incomprehensible Order”? I mean… if there’s order, it has to be comprehensible. Stands to reason!

      1. Swedenborg was a Knights templar belonging to the same lodge as the contemporary king of Sweden. Swedenborgianism was very popular in England attracting crowd audiences said to exceed 20000. Like his spiritual successor, pasquales de martini, swedenborg was jewish.

      2. @ Ed

        A fascinating comment … but do you have any evidence (e.g. a good link) for this statement: “Like his spiritual successor, pasquales de martini, swedenborg was jewish.”

        This is the first time I have heard of Swedenborg being “Jewish”.

      3. Saki –

        He was a Kabbalist. (jews are not an exclusive race)

        Marsha Keith Schuchard’s massive 800-page volume on Emanuel Swedenborg’s career as ‘a secret agent on Earth and in Heaven’ represents a study of Swedish political and diplomatic history in the 18th century with constant reference to the life and times of the famous Swedish scientist and later visionary. Disputing the settled portrait of Swedenborg as a dedicated scientist, technocrat, and a visionary interpreter of the Bible, Dr Schuchard asserts that Swedenborg also pursued an active career as a Jacobite spy on behalf of the Swedish government, that he was a Freemason and used secret Masonic networks to relay intelligence back to Sweden and to undertake other secret missions.

        Furthermore, she stresses his reception of **Jewish Kabbalah, involving the development of ecstatic, visionary techniques. These interests are linked to his early scientific studies in telepathy and thought-reading, and their practice is related to his diplomatic and intelligence activities.

      4. Thanks, Pat. You are a mine of useful information. Brilliant!

        I’m not disputing anything you say, but I don’t think the info you have given me justifies ‘Ed’ in asserting irresponsibly that Swedenborg was a JEW. How does an interest in Jewish Kabbalah equate to being ethnically “Jewish”?

        Are Jews the ONLY people interested in Kabbalah? Of course not. Madonna is into Kabbalah and sucks up to the Jews but she’s not Jewish. The Satanist Aleister Crowley was also into Kabbalah big time. He was not Jewish. He was a native Englishman. As for “Masons” being Jewish, that too is rubbish. Half the top police officers in the US and UK are practicing Masons, but they don’t have Jewish blood.

        Swedenborg seems to have come under JEWISH INFLUENCE, but that’s not the same as being “Jewish”. Are Pence and Pompeio Jewish? No. They just know how to cuddle up to the Jews — like Trump. At the most, maybe Swedenborg could be described as a “spiritual Jew”. What say you?

      5. ADMIN: Comment held up … please correct typo in your email address.

        Saki –

        I say – and have done so for decades – jews are not an exclusive race!

        Example: Chinese jews are a different race than German jews.

        During the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), a Ming emperor conferred seven surnames upon the Jews, by which they are identifiable today: Ai (艾), Shi (石), Gao (高), Gan (甘), Jin (金), Li (李), Zhang (張), and Zhao (趙). Two of these, Jin and Shi, are the equivalent of common Jewish names in the west: Gold and Stone.

      6. Agree, Pat. 🙂

        Jews are not a race Jews are a nation. A peculiar nation because it doesn’t need physical frontiers to exist, it operates in the territory of other nations. Israel (sic) doesn’t change this situation. Jews have their own law even when they are living in the jurisdiction of others, they have Jewish names and they have gentile names. The thing is arranged in a way it makes a formidable stealth political force, a worldwide political network, it can infiltrate every corner of politics in this world and it was designed for it – the invention of the Jewish people. Put some pinches of fear in their hearts and they will pack together, just like that.

        The Jewish nation can’t be “monolithic” because as chameleons Jews need to mimicry (camouflage) with the local people. Interbreeding is actually recommended, especially with the rich and powerful. Jews are not blonde with blue eyes, they’ve got these characteristics from the whites. There is a rumor Angela Merkel dyes her hair to look like a real German, which she is not.

        Even so, there is a preeminent race among them that is the Ashkenazim, all PMs of Israel until the present moment were Ashkenazim. Is the Jewish overlord Ashkenazim? I don’t know.

      7. Oh, I almost forgot the key issue of circumcision!
        A real Jew is always circumcised, I’m not referring to big boys doing surgery in a hospital, but the satanic mind-altering ritual of circumcision in babies with 8 days old. Every Jew is circumcised but not every circumcised is a Jew.

        The uncircumcised is not a Jew, period. This has interesting practical applications, for example: some Armies have physical tests in which the subject is naked, no big deal. Therefore, it’s quite easy to know who is uncircumcised in order to build a Force which is free of fifth columnists, especially commanders.

        A female reader could ask me, what about the Jewesses? My answer is they don’t run anything in Judaism, they work like Shabbos goy, the males are running the show that’s for sure. Jewesses feminists should fix their own tribe (nation) first! For this kind of rebel the “philanthropist” Gyorgy Schwartz, also known as George Soros, doesn’t invest his funds.

        Am I super estimating the importance of circumcision? Not at all, ask some Rabbi…

      8. YES, NBTT!!

        And further…. to your point… from a friend today:

        —The Chabad-Lubavitch ‘Nation’ connects Trump & ‘Put-On’— 🙂

        Founded in Lithuania in 1775, the Chabad-Lubavitch movement today has adherents numbering in the five, or perhaps six, figures. What the movement lacks in numbers it makes up for in enthusiasm, as it is known for practicing a particularly joyous form of Judaism.

        Mort Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, recalled having this trait impressed upon him during one family wedding at which the two tables occupied by his first cousins, Chabad rabbis, put the rest of the celebrants to shame. “They were dancing up a storm, these guys. I thought they were black. Instead they’re just black-hat,” Klein said, referring to their traditional Hasidic garb.

        Despite its small size, Chabad has grown to become the most sprawling Jewish institution in the world, with a presence in over 1,000 far-flung cities, including locales like Kathmandu and Hanoi with few full-time Jewish residents. The movement is known for these outposts, called Chabad houses, which function as community centers and are open to all Jews. “Take any forsaken city in the world, you have a McDonald’s and a Chabad house,” explained Ronn Torossian, a Jewish public relations executive in New York.

        Chabad adherents differ from other Hasidic Jews on numerous small points of custom, including the tendency of Chabad men to wear fedoras instead of fur hats. Many adherents believe that the movement’s last living leader, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who died in 1994, is the messiah, and some believe he is still alive. Chabad followers are also, according to Klein, “remarkable” fundraisers.

        As the closest thing the Jewish world has to evangelism—much of its work is dedicated to making Jews around the world more involved in Judaism—Chabad serves many more Jews who are not full-on adherents.

        According to Schmuley Boteach, a prominent rabbi in New Jersey and a longtime friend of Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, Chabad offers Jews a third way of relating to their religious identity. “You have three choices as a Jew,” he explained. “You can assimilate and not be very affiliated. You can be religious and Orthodox, or there’s sort of a third possibility that Chabad offers for people who don’t want to go the full Orthodox route but do want to stay on the traditional spectrum.”

        This third way may explain the affinity Trump has found with a number of Chabad enthusiasts—Jews who shun liberal reform Judaism in favor of traditionalism but are not strictly devout.

        “It’s not a surprise that Trump-minded people are involved with Chabad,” said Torossian. “Chabad is a place that tough, strong Jews feel comfortable. Chabad is a nonjudgmental place where people that are not traditional and not by-the-book feel comfortable.”

        He summarized the Chabad attitude, which is less strict than the Orthodox one, as, “If you can’t keep all of the commandments, keep as many as you can.”

      9. Our Weird Universe pushes Talmud as a business guide in China!!

        In China, Pushing the Talmud as a Business Guide
        By Isaac Stone Fish On 12/29/10
        http://www.newsweek.com/china-pushing-talmud-business-guide-69075

        Jewish visitors to China often receive a snap greeting when they reveal their religion:
        “Very smart, very clever, and very good at business,” the Chinese person says.

        Last year’s Google Zeitgeist China rankings listed “why are Jews excellent?” in fourth place in the “why” questions category, just behind “why should I enter the party” and above “why should I get married?” (Google didn’t publish a “why” category in Mandarin this year.) And the apparent affection for Jewishness has led to a surprising trend in publishing over the last few years: books purporting to reveal the business secrets of the Talmud that capitalize on the widespread impression among Chinese that attributes of Judaism lead to success in the financial arts.

        Titles such as Crack the Talmud: 101 Jewish Business Rules, The Illustrated Jewish Wisdom Book, and Know All of the Money-Making Stories of the Talmud share the shelves with stories of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates.

        There’s even a Talmud hotel in Taiwan inspired by “the Talmud’s concept of success” that features a copy of the book Talmud Business Success Bible in every room. With the increasing interest in business education in China, and a rise in sales of self-help literature, the production of business guides to the Talmud has exploded.

    2. 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” — mayby layers of reality, never forget this is the world of illusions.

      1. Padre Pio was a great saint who performed many miracles from the power and grace of Jesus Christ. Swedenborg and the others were certainly able to communicate with higher intelligences, not angels from heaven, however, but fallen angels or demons from hell.

      2. Read about Padre Pio and realize that demons are real and seek our damnation, and that saints like him are signs to us that the truth and our eternal salvation depend largely on believing what they believed, and worshiping God the way they did, which is traditional Catholicism (not the post Vatican II, Novus Ordo counterfeit) including the traditional sacramental rites and traditional Latin Mass. mostholyfamilymonastery.com/PadrePio.pdf

      3. @ Darrell

        “Read about Padre Pio and realize that demons are real and seek our damnation…”

        I’ve come to the conclusion that the architects who gave us Washington DC certainly believed this and apparently sought demonic help in conquering the world for Satan. IOW, they sought to use sorcery to convert the U.S. government into an instrument of evil intended to fulfill the Satanic agenda set forth in Isaiah 14:13,14.

        In a way, I can see a rough parallel between Babylon and America: Nimrod = George Washington; the “Tower (of Babel)” = the Washington Monument; and King (or co-regent or whatever he was) Belshazzar = the last U.S. president. (Last by way of the fact that he is the most demonically evil in a succession of evil men holding the most powerful and unaccountable political office, served by an eclectic mix of the most morally bankrupt subordinates and assorted order-followers).

  2. WOW! Lots to think of here! Head still reeling! I had no idea so many famous people like Blake and Swedenborg have had personal contact with angels and demons. This blows my mind.

  3. “One would have to be a full-fledged Satanist to believe that strangling babies is okay as a cure for depression…..”

    Yes, “one would’ in my view. Bringing that evil concept from Blake’s time, into the 21st century…. even TODAY…. we see China’s medical(sic) teams and police are abusing and starving people who have symptoms of the Corona virus.

    Are Chinese meant to be here??

    1. “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.

  4. I wouldn’t say death is a “continuum” of life, per se, but an interruption of it by being subject to the ravages of time that inexorably LEAD to death. Such are the conditions of being HERE, making it CONDITIONAL.

    But wouldn’t having FREE will mean not being subject to that? Being free FROM IT?

    So who or what IMPOSES the conditions?

    1. Gil
      I’m referring to existential conditions in and of themselves. The “Creator” you speak of represents an external entity described by the use of a noun – Creator, a form of authoritarianism that can only imply something removed from the exercise of individual will. Better to use the word “Creation”, which suggests a more integral experience.

      This is very difficult to convey, given that our minds have been so indoctrinated by a misleading idea of “God” as exemplified in ALL religious text.

      Here’s a preview of a post I intend to submit in the “Are We Meant to be Here” Part 2 thread:

      “Creation’s true force of action (will; intention) is a concomittance (Divine manifestation) moving in a dance of still-ness (being yet; everlasting) A seed initiating presence, whose idea(conception; imagination) coalesce with their perception (en-joyed) always in a “timeless” state of now

  5. Brownhawk –

    The “imposition of conditions” is determined by The Keeper/Creator. For example, while a chicken can wander around her pen with “free will”, her condition will impede her venturing outside it. The pen is a boundary. However, a human convict in a jail can wander “outside” via the quantum of his mind (unlike the poor chicken which supposedly is not endowed with imagination).
    You and I can, at least, imagine a utopia, and wander there whenever we feel so disposed. None of this stuff is really provable; but is, rather, a pleasant fiction whereby we can maintain much-needed hope – at least for a better pen to play in! 😁

  6. @ saki, i think you and many don’t understand that many ‘ christians’ have a jewish background. This background exists from generation to generation and is lasting centuries. I think even going back to at least before christ as the jews lived there alteady in rome. The vatican knows this. These ‘ christians’ don’t mention to outsides their jewish background. This is the problem in the ‘ christian’ church that many have a different background and have a special bond kinship with their jewish brothers. The trojan horse was/is always there.

    1. Even madonna could be jewish as sicily was and is always a good place for italian jews for commerce as an oriental path from the orient to europe. There are many sicilians with a jewish background. Study their surnames. Just the fact that someone says that he is from italy doesn’t mean he ain’t jewish., even Sylvester stallone is jewish of his mother’s side. When someone has success there is almost always a jewish secret. By the way the mafia was a sicilian invention of the freemason Mazzini and company. That’s why the ‘ italian/sicilian’ mafia is such good buddies with the jews.,there are more secrets then the jews want us to know. The italian bourgeousie is jewish and the workers are italian in general. Italy is occupied territory always been ruled by the jews posing as italians, italianized surnames.

    2. saki, i think you and many don’t understand that many ‘christians’ have a jewish background.

      Oh gosh, I wish I had your incredible brain so that I could “understand” all the things you find it so easy to understand! Do tell me your secret, dear Allen, and explain to me how I can acquire your phenomenal brainpower. 🙂

      Ever heard of condescension?

      1. In any case, I don’t see why it should be a problem that “Christians” (why the inverted commas?) should “have a Jewish background”. What’s the problem? Wouldn’t it help these ‘Christians’ to figure things out better for themselves if they had the higher-than-average Jewish IQ of 115? Or do you think they would be at an advantage having the lower IQ of the average non-Jew (100 or less)? 🙂

        I question your naive assumption that being a redneck white man somehow makes you superior to an intelligent and sophisticated Jew. And no, I’m not Jewish. Unlike you, I don’t think all Jews are evil vermin who should be put in gas ovens just for being Jewish.

        If Jesus Christ was Jewish, would you put him in a gas oven?

      2. Anyway, it’s time you stopped sneering at Christianity. Especially on a pro-Christian site that did not invite you to come here in the first place and spew your venom against Christianity. You’re on the wrong site, Allen, like a meat eater in a Vegan restaurant.

      3. Saki
        You’re way too sensitive. Adherents of Christianity that love Christ are no different than non-adherents in their love. We don’t bash Christ. What we BASH is in regards to how and when the organized religion uses it as a front that often OBFUSCATES what Jesus is all about. It’s not such a stretch to say that he had no interest in founding a religion when he KNEW that an obfuscation would occur

      4. @ Brownhawk

        You’re way too sensitive…

        You’re right, Brownhawk. I am way too sensitive about certain things. This is partly because of semantic difficulties. Often my interlocutor and I are not talking the same language and have misunderstood each other. Yesterday I was having a bad day and I must apologize to Allen for the way I spoke to him. He is basically a good man who is trying to find his way out of the pitch darkness of a tunnel and thinks he has found a torch to help him on his way. But I’m not sure his torch batteries are working! 🙂

        Anyway, his torch doesn’t work for me. It flickers and goes off.

  7. Raised awareness of the Creation and concomitant humility before the Creator have been relatively common up until the last 200 years. Literature is replete with documentation of moral and scientific leaders referred to in the post,and their common observations of higher realms.

    Neo-Neeanderthals, technocrats all, such as Elon Musk, Yuval Noah Harari, Ray Kurzweil have brain defects denying them the latent awakening of direct sensory perception, common almost all of mankind. They are unscientific, for they deny the common, corroborated and repeated observations of the “aware”. Observations that cannot be seen with the naked eye or mediated by electronic instruments are denied … just as idiots would deny radio communication or quantum mechanics.

    In the 70’s, Gopi Krishna, an unknown former Indian civil servant, one of the “aware”, began to brush shoulders with world renowned scientists, some of which wrote prefaces to his books. Example: Most eminent Max Planck Institute Von Weizsäcker CF wrote the preface to “The Biological Basis of Religion and Genius.”.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Friedrich_von_Weizs%C3%A4cker

    Awareness of the “Undiscovered Country” is available through a biological mechanism that science has refused to investigate since the 70’s, despite entreaties from organizations and high level scientists. That investigation is relatively simple: brain, spinal fluid, nervous conduction.

  8. @ saki, i have never said the things we should do with the jews as you write in your comment.
    Not nice of you man. And it is not necessary to be
    Jewwise without being a redneck as you imply.
    And jews are not more intelligent than others. Jews have in general a more predatory attitude in life which is translated as intelligence.

  9. I don’t believe in parallel universes , ( sound too much like “relativity ” ) but also in as much that my mind can only cope with certain obvious realities- (you know) which are already too far fetched for the general masses
    Eg that white peoples are being currently undermined and dissolved as a race. (Having served their purpose -to bring Light to a Dark world. (?)
    A Sacrifice perhaps. Done all he rounds over aeons & history obscured.

    Given that flies are naturally attracted to rotting substances -eg a corpse, which will then be eaten & broken down further by maggots, – that is a feature of Nature.
    All has a purpose.
    Jewry et al might be the Flies. If the corpse wasn’t already weakened and dying it wouldn’t attract flies.
    Maggots are all the “invaders” that are entering to benefit and feed off the residue.
    I do believe in a Creator and that there are universal Laws . That everything is orderly.
    Of course our minds cant comprehend the bigger picture beyond what we are able to fathom, ie the Big Plan of Our Creator.
    I do see that adversity is for learning & growth , and I do hope nobody misinterprets this as (in that popular label “white supremacism”.) Arrgh.

  10. In an alternative Universe somewhere, there has to be, I just know it! In an alternative Universe somewhere there’s another way to spell “favourite” and it’s spelled “favorite”! Somewhere, far away, beyond the sTaRs!

    1. @ TROJ

      In an alternative Universe somewhere there’s another way to spell “favourite” and it’s spelled “favorite”!

      Well, Lasha Darkmoon (LD) has spelled the word as “favourite” in the above essay, and I guess your snide comment is meant to suggest that she is a bad speller who ought to get it right and spell it correctly as “favorite”. This is not the first time an ill-educated American has found fault with LD’s spelling. 🙂

      So let me inform you “favourite” is the correct English spelling in the British Isles — though “favorite” is the correct spelling in America.

      LD uses English spelling throughout this article (and in her poems) because she lives in England and needs to use English, not American, spelling. This naturally makes our less educated American friends think LD is a bad speller! They honestly believe that all words should be spelt/spelled the American way, not realising/realizing that English spelling is superior, and that Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders often prefer to spell their words the English way.

      A good American is a man of HONOR and his wife likes her JEWELRY. A good Englishman, on the other hand, is a man of HONOUR and his wife likes her JEWELLERY. Note the difference. I think we may call this “orthographic diversity”.

      BTW, did you know that there was no such thing as CORRECT SPELLING in Shakespeare’s time? Everyone spelt/spelled words phonetically. Shakespeare spelt/spelled his own name TEN different ways — and never once did he spell it “correctly” , i.e. never once did he sign his name as “SHAKESPEARE”. 🙂

      1. In Shakespeare’s time and into the 18th century… an ‘s’ was an ‘f’!!
        As examples:
        Promise was spelled Promife.
        Discharged was Difcharged.

      2. @ Pat

        You are wrong. It was an “s” and pronounced as an “s”, though it LOOKED like a “f” with a HALF-BAR on the printed page. I have an 18th century book in front of me now, so I can see the difference. The ‘f” with the full bar looks almost identical to the “f” with the HALF-BAR … but the full-bar “f” is pronounced like an F but the half-bar f is pronounced like an S.

        Note the “s” here in the word PARADISE, and note it again in the word LOST. It does NOT look like an ordinary F. The horizontal bar is only found on the LEFT side of the vertical bar, it does not go through the vertical bar to the right hand side, i.e. it’s an S that looks like a badly written F:

      3. …ours is a mongrel language which started with a child’s vocabulary of three hundred words, and now consists of two hundred and twenty-five thousand; the whole lot, with the exception of the original and legitimate three hundred, borrowed, stolen, smouched from every unwatched language under the sun, the spelling of each individual word of the lot locating the source of the theft and preserving the memory of the revered crime.
        – Mark Twain

      4. GF –

        My point was the same as yours, but writing is too difficult now for me to labor with it.
        I even wrote my email wrong yesterday. 🙂

        Great fun argument, though!

      5. Don’t worry about it, Pat. I can barely remember my own email address when asked. My doctor said to me the other day: “You’re doing fine as long as you can remember your name!” 🙂

      6. @Grammar Fiend

        I was looking for an English word that would describe succinctly your classy response to Pat’s “f-s” screw-up, but I couldn’t find one that would satisfy me completely. So – as a development of the great language – I suggest a new English word: fpanking 🙂

      7. Use of words like “theatre” and “theater” is about the same as being able to distinguish the proper uses of “which” and “that”. “Favorite” and “favourite” are much the same. It is a matter of culture and education, mostly; but there ARE exceptions, as with any “rule” (which can also be called a “mandate”). For instance, the word “theatre” is a act of circumstance (NOT to be confused with the noun “cinema”).
        I noticed in a prior thread that the pretentious and “way too sensitive” SAKI wrote the word “theater” when she should have written “theatre”. (Notice, too, that I sense the name “SAKI” exudes the feminine instead of the masculine – but that, too, may be simply a matter of culture and education.

      8. Saki talks a great deal of sense, Gilbert, and is by no means “pretentious”, as you say. Why are you so damnably rude?

        If I may say so without giving offense, dear Gilbert, I find your silly lecture on the words “favorite” and “favourite”, “theater” and “theatre, not only pretentious but pompous. That’s how you come across to me, Gilbert: a rather pompous ass. 🙂

        This is not a disrespectful comment. It’s a friendly comment from someone who admires your poetry but wishes you weren’t such a stuffed shirt. Get a life, darling, and go out a bit more! 🙂

      9. I can’t be angry with you, darling Madame. No offense taken! 😊
        You’re always ready with a plucky response, and make this site more entertaining. Usually, I don’t encourage you, but, in this instance, I DO sound a wee bit “pompous”. You’ve said you were an English teacher, and I am therefore surprised you find my comment unreasonable. Redneck that you might think me to be, I DO try to write with proper grammar, and very much appreciate Lasha’s written word. (I will henceforth be conscious of your favour; but do try to be pleasant, dear.). 😉

      10. @ Gilbert Huntly

        I will say one thing about you, sir. You are a true gentleman. However regrettable I find some of your views, I find other things about you very pleasant. If we were ever to meet over a glass of wine — most unlikely! — I think we would have lots of laughs. 🙂

      11. @ GRAMMAR FIEND

        I want to call you an “asshole” because that’s what you are but I’m not sure if they spell it “asshole” or “arsehole” in England. I would hate to spell/pronounce it wrong — that would get you even more upset than you already are and far be it from me to get you distressed. So let me know whether you think of yourself as an “asshole” or an “arsehole”. This way I will know how to refer to you in the proper English way and this way your old schoolmarm panties won’t get tied up in knots irritating you to no end! LOL….. 🙂

      12. Thank heaven there are and always will be odd and brilliant folks (though few and far between) like Mark Twain and Huck Finn!

        “I never had any large respect for good spelling. That is my feeling yet. Before the spelling-book came with its arbitrary forms, men unconsciously revealed shades of their characters and also added enlightening shades of expression to what they wrote by their spelling, and so it is possible that the spelling-book has been a doubtful benevolence to us.”
        – Mark Twain

      13. @ Hp

        We have much to learn from both Mark Twain and H.L. Mencken and I’m happy to see that you hold both these maverick thinkers in high esteem. Tell me though: if they were alive today, would they be regarded as politically incorrect and dangerous? Would they be demonized? What is your view on this?

      14. Saki, I believe Mark Twain and H.L. Mencken are politically incorrect both then and now and on into the future as far as the teary eye can see. And laughter of the highest order accompanies them. In comoedia veritas, indeed..

        “I believe that Huckleberry Finn is one of the great masterpieces of the world. That it is the full equal of Don Quixote and Robinson Crusoe, that it is vastly better than Gil Blas, Tristram Shandy, Nicholas Nickleby or Tom Jones. I believe that Mark Twain had a clearer vision of life, that he came nearer to its elementals and was less deceived by its false appearances, than any other American who has ever presumed to manufacture generalizations, not excepting Emerson. I believe that, admitting all his defects, he wrote better English, in the sense of cleaner, straighter, vivider, saner English, than either Irving or Hawthorne. I believe that four of his books–Huck, Life on the Mississippi, Captain Stormfield’s Visit to Heaven, and A Connecticut Yankee–are alone worth more, as works of art and as criticisms of life, than the whole output of Cooper, Irving, Holmes, Mitchell, Stedman, Whittier and Bryant. I believe that he was the true father of our national literature, the first genuinely American artist of the royal blood.” (H.L. Mencken)
        —————————————————————
        “It is Huck who gives the book style. The River gives the book its form. But for the River, the book might be only a sequence of adventures with a happy ending. A river, a very big and powerful river, is the only natural force that can wholly determine the course of human peregrination. . . . Thus the River makes the book a great book. . . . Mark Twain is a native, and the River God is his God.”
        (T. S. Eliot)

      15. @ Hp

        Many thanks! You are a mine of useful information.
        I adore these quotes of yours. Where do you find them?
        I’m glad I found this site. There are not many like it.

      16. Saki, I enjoy them too. I’ve run across many because my affection for Mark and Huck was one of the best highlights of my young life. I was hard to captivate and even harder to tame, as per any literary disciplines, much less philology. Mark Twain never asked me for any of that. He only gave and gave. I very much appreciated it.

        Here’s one last blast from the past. I believe I can slip it in without taking advantage of ADMIN’s patience as to off-topic distractions due to the nature of the link.
        This is a very unique and wonderful exchange. An exchange most would think to be rather odd, if not downright amazing!
        ——————————————————————
        Journalist: It’s a story that Mark Twain wrote a mysterious stranger, that wonderful book of Satan, inspired by you.

        Tesla: The word “Lucifer” is more charming. Mr. Twain likes to joke. As a child, I was healed once by reading his books. When we met here and told him about, he was so touched that he cried. We became friends and he often came to my lab. Once he requested to show him a machine that by vibration provokes a feeling of bliss. It was one of those inventions for entertainment, what I sometimes like to do.

        I warned Mr. Twain as not to remain under these vibrations. He did not listen and stayed longer. It ended by being, like a rocket, holding pants, darted into a certain room. It was a diabolically funny, but I kept the seriousness.
        ————————————————————
        “Tesla: It is most important. Write that Mr. Tesla played. He played the whole of his life and enjoyed it.”

      17. @ Hp

        Fascinating comment, Homer. Admin may consider it “off-topic”, but I find Admin is remarkably flexible about off-topic comments that are intellectually stimulating and “life-enhancing”. Admin only objects to off-topic sleazy locker-room talk, ad hominem ding-dong arguments, and chatroom trivia. Not to comments such as yours. Tesla, for example, is of very great interest to LD. So your comment (and link) is bound to interest her considerably.

  11. 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

    Yet we are to believe Khazarian Turks, at the simple command of a king, unerringly adopted every jot and tittle of religious Judaism to a point they bore perfect and exact semblance to the Bible’s unrelated tribes, thousands of miles away, from millennium in the past?

    Does not this story sound like another Jewish Holocaust fable, with its soap bars, lampshades and geysers of blood? Should we be surprised this “theory” was penned by an ash-can-Nazi Jew who, according to his own theory, may not have not have actually been one?

    We do not live so much in a strange universe as we do a Jewed universe.

    1. Madame the butterfly and Gilby the goldfish — if they were to ever meet over anything — they would most likely find themselves meeting over a bottle of gin in some honky tonk joint in the backwoods , Racoon Hollow, Tennessee, Gilby singing “We Were Walking In High Cotton” damn Yankees! and Madame singing “Un bel di, vedremo”.

  12. Regarding sex, the best tome ever penned on it is, “The Metaphysics of Sex: Eros and the Mysteries of Romance” by Julius Evola. He goes into antiquity covering myth, history, literature, and art conveying beyond any doubt the inherent sacredness of the sex act, which far transcends biological procreation. Unfortunately for the majority of people in this Kali Yuga, sex is more akin to mutual masturbation. Original sin was most assuredly not the sex act itself, presupposing a man and woman of the same race doing the magic act. It was a man or woman having sex with one of another race, causing miscegenation. Think of which example aforestated produces dire consequences. The Biblical commandment is not, “Thou shalt not commit adultery”, which was a later transposition and false interpretation but, “Thou shalt not adulterate”, which means to make impure by admixture. It is the downfall of race, culture, and civilization.

    1. HD –

      “The Biblical commandment is not, “Thou shalt not commit adultery”, which was a later transposition and false interpretation but, “Thou shalt not adulterate”, which means to make impure by admixture. It is the downfall of race, culture, and civilization.”

      YES!!! Correct!

      I have written that here dozens of times in the past. Do not adulterate the race. “Do not covet another’s wife” was already there. No need to repeat & waste space on the heavy tablet! 🙂

      And a man could have numerous wives without committing the false ‘adultery’ as defined today!!

      1. Concomitant with this, note also the Scriptural declaration, “A Mamzer (Bastard) shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord.” “Bastard”, like with Adultery, has had its’ meaning altered over the centuries for nefarious purpose. Bastard means mongrel or one of mixed race, NOT one born out of wedlock. An ever-living God would harbor no malice or resentment towards a child born from an Aryan couple, just because they were not “legally” married. Such a notion is absurd and ludicrous. Again, this admonition is a condemnation against race mixing or miscegenation.

  14. “Are we meant to be here?”
    A question which can’t help but be answered with many more questions, such as, “by what means ARE there for our being here”, “what agency EMPLOYS the means?”, “What definition of ‘God’ is responsible for its reality?”, “how may we be COMPLICIT in its reality?”

    Stay tuned for Part 2……

    1. Hi, Brownhawk! 🙂

      Scientists say the entropy of this chaotic universe is always increasing but there is a problem with this principle: LIFE is doing the opposite. A living organism works perfectly well organized, and it can reproduce itself, WOW!!

      No one can explain the source, or the driving force, of this perfect organization, without using the concept of God. Darwinists call it chance, which is just a joke explanation. I can’t remember the guy who used a brilliant metaphor to debunk this, to believe live developed randomly is like to believe a hurricane in a junkyard could assemble a Boeing 737 by chance, impossible!

      I’ll be simplistic in order to not go crazy with these existential questions. We really are meant to be here because, if we were not, we wouldn’t be here. Silly answer?

      P.S. We just have to deal with some idiots (Satanists) who pretend to be God, so we can live in a Paradise on Earth.

      1. @ NBTT

        Excellent comment! You have touched on all the important issues brought up by this fascinating article. Maybe Part 2 will offer further helpful insights into the limitations of our knowledge and make it even clearer that the universe is meaningful and that we are meant to be here.

        Indeed, as already stated at the end of Part 1:

        Continued in Part 2 : We Are Meant To Be Here

      2. ADMIN
        In my second paragraph “to believe live…” should read, “to believe LIFE…”
        Thanks a lot!
        Sorry the trouble… 🙂

      3. NBTT

        Yes, of course explaining requires a concept of God. So in conveying one such conceptual understanding, say,
        “We are meant to be here, so long as ‘here’ is not a place of mortal existence…..so sayeth the Gnostics.

        Ask yourself a simple question: Does the exercise of your free will freely intend a death experience, whereby “death” would imply an interruption of said experience? 😗

      4. Thanks, Saki!
        I LUV when you appreciate my comments! It means a lot to me… 🙂

        No, Brownhawk, nobody wants to die. For us, humans, we have our physical climax with say 18 years old, and then we start to wear out like a perfect designed car with thousands of miles on its wheels and pistons, that is inexorable!

        Nevertheless, we could live more if we were not poisoned in a day by day basis. A religious guy told me Moses lived 120 years, and “here” is a test to the soul, so we can move to the next phase…

        https://jahtruth.net/

      5. A test, yes. But again, a true definition of “free” will is required for the truth to be known. The truth, the whole truth, and…..

  15. Don’t get me wrong. Being in an older body getting older is no picnic. Leaving it will be liberating. But just imagine if you were one of Swift’s Strudlburgs in “Gulliver’s Travels, living in the misery of decrepit physical bodies FOREVER. What a nightmare! 😱

    What I’m talking about is having the ability to come and go at will, in and out of various so-called “jew-free” realities, meaning on YOUR TERMS. No ravages of time. No boundaries of space….

    Sounds like a reasonable example of free will to me
