אֵיךְ נָפַלְתָּ מִשָּׁמַיִם, הֵילֵל בֶּן-שָׁחַר; נִגְדַּעְתָּ לָאָרֶץ,
Isaiah 12. How art thou fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, that didst cast lots over the
From the Hebrew to the Latin, an understanding is present about a way of being that hides beneath the language of metaphor.
"HeILeL BeN ShaChaR". What is the Hebrew intimating here? Assuming a reflexive-proclivity for embedding unconscious biases into the construction and
formation of a language i.e. generating a group consciousness partly through the semantics of the language on perception and motivation, tihs phrase
Obviously, Heilel is related to the word Halal - praise. Ben ShaChaR...hmmm, "son of the morning"? Ben, as per the metaphysics of this language,is
meant in the sense of "beget", or "product". ShAChaR. Hmmmm...This word, "shachar", means dawn, and yet in Job and other books the same word is used
in the sense of "black". Also interesting is the association of these two terms with the river Nile "ShIChOR" - same three root letters, Shin, Cheth,
The Metaphysics of the Mind
The ancients thought and understood very deeply about how the world works, but we all must admit that, despite the "wisdom" we sometimes attribute to
them, it was an entirely "intuitive" approach to knowing, i.e. what's termed "top-down" in analytical philosophy. A bottom-up approach, conversely, is
based on physics and the basic way and manner matter organizes itself. Causality - knowing which we way and how precisely things work, is an
enormously powerful handmaiden of the intuitive approach to knowing.
Yet people clearly intuit and understand reality in different ways.
"Praise of the Dark Dawn", could be the Ugaritic description of what other's today call the "black sun". Lucifer, etc, etc.
Much hoopla - dramatic - and conducing to a really powerful narrative, goes into the production of these ideas, but I think the basic sense is lost,
and people, thinking they know and understand, in all probability probably don't - and like all of us, are simply "trying to live" - even if that
includes a whole lot of "errors" in the living process.
First, as a basic analytic question: why is this star, sun, etc, considered to have fallen? What is being referred to here?
The answer is pride - considered the offspring of consciousness, related to beauty and the perception of beauty i.e. its association with Venus. Pride
is the natural "teleodynamic" attractor for the Human species, and yet, it is considered to have "fallen" - to have become gross, misused,because it
is deriving its motivations "from the ground" i.e. from the fear-center of the brain - the amygdala (meaning "almond") - perhaps the "fruit" which
grows inside our skulls when we keep knowing the world from the perspective of threat (evil) and advantage (good). Indeed, the word here contains the
word for knowledge - "da'ath" for you Kabbalah wizards - נִגְדַּעְתָּ לָאָרֶץ.
And the last word, "choliesh", "caster of lots on nations", seems to be an indictment on the pagan nations, that perhaps critiques a certain way of
thinking based in "luck", or taking "chances".
The indictment seems to be "you don't pay attention to the dynamics of things". and this heilel-ben-shahar would appear to be a cult of the ego - a
cult which places pride - the very source of Human awareness - at the forefront, without much concern about how or why that feeling-relationship even
exists like that.
Dichotomies Rule In Unbalanced Brains
This is truth. People who don't regulate their affects are very prone to exaggeration - embellishment - and so polarizing the people they disagree
Is this not demented? If you cannot represent things accurately with your words, and people hear a false or unbalanced representation of what they
believe, is it not obvious that the other party will feel antagonized against? It is not a truism that attunement, sincerity, and concern for how your
words will be received is a basic requirement for effective Human communication?
If yes, why do we tolerate yellers - the Clintons, the Bushes, the Trumps - who yell and in doing so, in the very act of orienting to others in that
way, activate fear-dynamics in the brain-mind that incline the mind into a more rigid form. It is manipulation by people who falsely believe
themselves to be invulnerable.
Every baby is imprinted by its environment - having its fear centers modulated by the presence or absence of important stimuli. An organization of
kindness, love, and care, will always be picked up by mirror neurons and so stimulate neural-processes that work to "achieve" the pleasure of being
recognized. These dynamics are superordinate to amygdala-fear system, operating in the anterior cingulate, insular and orbital frontal cortex.
The gift of such love is greater reflexive control of your feeling state. Love makes the world clear - without blemishes or faults. It builds neuron
in areas of the brain that operate by regulating more ancient fear-centers - the amygdala, BNST, PAG, and reticular activating system.
Could the ancients have known this - could they have known that their perspective upon the world was a delusion generated by a traumatized brainstem,
magnifying, exaggerating and inequitably presenting the social-processes around us?
No. You need Science. You need Newton, and yes, even Descartes, Bacon, and others, to get us looking outward, until we come to a threshold, following
Darwin, Faraday, Maxwell-Clerk, Einstein, Bohr, Lorenz, etc, where we must address the relationship of the inner to the outer.
