To think all are created equal is stupid; nowhere in the Bible is this stated. and since life goes on after the Bible there are no natural law
observations or temporal laws that state this is true.
Consider for a moment the state of nature; it is rule by the largest, strongest, or the most toxic, or the greater practitioner of slight of hand or
trickery (fly trap, pitcher plant, temple woman). When it downsizes it is ruled by adaptive genetics. And nowhere is equality at play.
Yet mankind is an anomaly: ... We are born of the higher orders of increasing complexity with which the universe challenges itself.
We may not even be of basic evolution, but seeded by even more ancient races who could modify genetics -- to put hints about reality into our very
fibers! ... Is there a small book at the beginning of our code? .. or is that the repeated instruction for the womb to ready itself .. incoming, now?
We don't know .. YET!
Races hoary with age: Races who obsessed over the stars, not just for time calculations of great accuracy; but to see if there was a flash of
destruction of home-worlds which could not overcome divisive and competitive mentalities.
But we are also creatures of mind and will and self determination ... and if we choose to posit a system where all are "considered" "Equal before
the Law" ... then that is something we might choose to do, to avoid certain other pitfalls which can happen.
A simple analogy is Tibet. The Great City of Tibet was build after a failure or two .. and it received new guardians and forward-ers of the evolution
of mankind on the Planet Earth (ancient Indian legend). But these were very
wise people, and people versed in the use of the mind, and the powers which can be accessed by mind, and used over other people. ...
A tyranny of sorcery developed in Tibet. Anyone who was someone had to have their own "trusted" sorcerer to protect them!! This went on for some
time, even so far as to accost the dying to try and steal the power of their lives ... and so the priests of Goodness sit and read the Bardo to the
dying even to this day .. so they may pass unharried to the next level.
How was it broken .. with the forming of great houses of power lead by the good who cared, and ALL TIBETANS ... that is each household of the land
had to send at least one representative to the monastery, to be educated, to learn good vs. evil, and to be watched, as well. Which-ever generation
of your house you chose, you had to send one child. And so the power was brought under control. Because the power rests in the living!
Now I ask you ... what would you do with the bankers and the corporations of today?
