Ah...So behavior doesn't give away unconscious + reflexive interpretative mechanisms? Maybe it is "naked" in the same sense that self-aware people
"see the soul" - whereas people who aren't self-aware, don't see it? Perhaps this is a brain-issue of the type "what fires together, wires together"
i.e. if you do something over and over again, you become loyal to that which enlivens you.
I suppose the subtly of the issue - the simplicity of FOX and its number-word-games, and even more-so, what a "mark" really means when made by a
spiritual-text: if people do not understand the level of reality 'above' the one we live, it can be hard to the plausible - integrative-meaning -
effect of Fox's clever perversion of the minds of Humans.
While I do get that this thread is speculative, in light of Trump, and in light of the sheer non-sense of FOX news, it seems plausible that FOX
deliberately does this, quite possibly because its owners, investors and management are of the "left hand path" occult-variety - ala, some of the
crazed nonsense you can find right here on this website.
My more general point is: a mark is literally an effect.
People take things too literally - because they do not get how the ancients
(particularly, the mystic-philosopher-priests) conceived of words and things: they were 'energies' of dynamic patterns.
So fox news patterns you, doesn't it? Except what it patterns is your neurological wiring: how your 'feelings' i.e. subcortical processes, interact
with world (or mental) object - the cortical mantle of your brain. Is 666 not able to be read into FOX, simply by taking the 3 letters and simply
"reducing" them to a common element i.e. 6? And is FOX not getting into you in a way deeper than anyone here is apparently able to recognize? lol
Now, to address another issue raised by someone else: why would the bible be referring to Fox news? Well when you write predictions in a book, and
people know of those predictions, it's really easy to think that Human appropriation of the prediction is arbitrary and without a basis - and that is
truly sound thinking.
However, doesn't the universe take into account Human behavior? Are we not creatures "bound within the swirl" of organized matter? Ah. And here
information helps: if you don't understand what is happening on planet Earth, and what Human beings appear to be living within (A very non-arbitrary
existence), it becomes sensible thinking to see FOX news as 'encoding' their essence - their deliberative interest to confuse and undermine rational
thought - in the numerology of its name.
Now, if numerology seems stupid to you - and thats the issue - that's understandable as well. Numerology can be regarded as an ancient practice, but
one which doesn't make much sense. Hebrew gematria - or the numerical value of Hebrew words - is belived to be expressive of the mathematical nature
of the expressed phenomenon. For instance, 666 comes from the Hebrew Bible, from the book of Kings in particular:
1 Kings 10:14: The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents,
Now two words in Hebrew have this gematria, tassur - תסור and סתור. Same letters, just re-arranged. The first word means "to depart", while
the second one means "to keep secret". If you reflect on what these concepts mean, its easy to see how they connect: isn't lying, either to self or
other, at the root of all evil? And, when a person lies, do they not keep their knowledge "hidden like a secret" inside them?
I believe myself to be a rational person, and with occams razor (which I take to be a legitimate heuristic for thinking) I don't think I'm making too
many implausible assumptions. These are the assumptions:
-Do we live in a world of integrative meaning? I think we do. If we do, you have to conceptualize processes and interactions as entailing EVERYTHING -
Humans, non-humans and non-living matter: were all "one".
-Satanists exist in this world? I think bohemian grove, corporatist evil(Citizens united) and Fox News gives that away. Trumps campaign has gotten me
"more conspiratorial", however, no sane person could disagree with the claim that Fox news has "led the way" to the ascendance of Donald Trump. It
could not have happened without his influence.
Whether or not numbers/words have any intrinsic mathematical relationship is besides the point. It could be non-sense, or it could be real. My sense
is, Fox news "brainwashes people". 666 is actually and very visibly a reducible product of the 3 letters of its name. Ergo, Foxnews has essentially
"made itself" into the mark of the beast.
Of course, and judging from the bad response this thread has gotten, I may be wrong. Lets hope Donald isn't the source of a future world catastrophe
that resolves itself in the ways that the Bible predicted to happen i.e. the "end of the world" - which, of course, may ultimately be transformation
of consciousness out of the condition we have been living within as a species for thousands of years.
