That's a lot of reading; I'm about a third of the way through it, and although there's a lot which I feel is 'stretching', or simply
unappreciative of several relevant factors, there is plenty of interesting stuff to go at. I always find it a struggle to read when someone is trying
to convince the reader that everything he or she thought she knew about something is wrong... In that sense there's an irreverence I find
distasteful. However, as it's reminding me of some of the more fundamental symbolism and alchemical stuff at play in the old legends and scriptures,
I'm bearing with it.
The heart of true prophetic works is that there is never
only one interpretation to be gleaned from a careful study. A lot depends on
perspective... In the case of 'Holy Books', the scholar's interpretation will often be the intentions
of his heart reflected. The
most sacred texts are coded and multi-layered to a degree that we've not yet collectively given credit for...
I'll try to dig out some good examples of what I mean.. Emanuel Swedenborg did a good analysis of the multiple layers of meaning in the Bible, and
of course there's the amazing mathematical coincidences in terms of word count etc in the Vedas.
