What is the deal with Genesis, as in the Bible Genesis. So many metaphors, so confusing.
I prefer to distance myself from western religion and cultures, but its just something so confusing.
First, whatever a peoples/persons philosophical system is is something that MUST remain personal, it is up to individuals to determine what they
As for Genesis and the Bible. I feel that one needs to put this in perspective; it is a body of text that was derived from a verbal tradition (for the
most part), and that tradition was created to explain something that couldn't be explained. Hence most things belonging to God. As a people progress
and learn many things are taken from God and given to science, yet there will always be some things that science can't explain and remain the
property of God.
Eden is a historical metaphore; yet science is showing it may also have been a historical place that was distroyed by Earth changes. The ancient Eden
very well could have been a place where hunter/gatherers lived, was distroyed by climate changes, and yet lived on in a verbal tradition.
Higher dimensional planes...not sure I want to go there...lol This has many meanings and they are as different as what God is to each individual. This
is more of a philosophical construct than it is anything that may exist in the physical sense. According to esoteric teaching there are 11 planes,
many believe humans live in the 3rd plane, and are starting to ascend to the 4th. If one were to read some theosophical texts, then humans are in/at
the 4th level and may soon ascend to the 5th.
Most seem to feel that these dimensional planes are like levels of consciousness or thinking, and to be sure it is possible for anyone to rise to
higher levels of consciousness and thinking.
Many of these things can be quite confusing...all I could suggest is that one meditate on these things and perhaps gain a better understanding within
Yes...change their minds! There was supposed to be an internal disclosure this year...it didn't happen. By "internal" I mean that the presence of
ET was supposed to be disclosed to governments...all governments. There is no indication that this has happened. Human governments seem to have a
knack for making a decission and then changing their minds...they do this about a lot of things, and it seems that the more important it is, the more
likely they are to change. I'm not at all sure that this is just human governments either...
