But i highly doubt it would give another power over all manifested consciousness on the planet.
No...no... I mean because of a knowledge of metaphysics, and concealing that knowledge from the masses, an elite class is able to rule the world..
I'm not saying people nowadays can ever take it from them through metaphysical knowledge. ... We are far too excluded from the picture. Noble families
have their roots firmly planted in civilization and its appendages. At most, one can conquer himself. Together, with the collective enlightenment of
mankind, we could, it's plausible, strip the perennial holders of political power - the elites - of their stranglehold on the policies of the
world....But that probably wont happen because they're always a few steps ahead of us, being master tacticians and all.
Having said that my own conclusions on the subject seem to indicate an infinity extending inwards and outwards subjectively( which is the key)
That would do the elite good. As long as no one is opposing them, they'll let everyone go infinitely inwards and project outwards a subjective
understanding of reality
My philosophy is the opposite. Since i believe in an objective morality - and standard - by which everyone should live by, one can go infinitely
inwards, but that doesn't translate as going infinitely outwards. The inner realm is defined as being beyond limitation - but not the outward,
external world. The external world has rules, laws and strictures. Limitations of Cause and Effect. Were indebted to our source, and to each other, to
It's precisely due to an ignorance of metaphysical reality, that the elite are able to popularize moral relativistic philosophies; it ignores the
metaphysical realm and its laws. We forget that actions have an effect on spiritual reality, which creates an imbalance in the system.
Let me give you an example using a traditional myth. Before Eve was created, Adam had a wife named Lilith. In Hebrew, Lilith means "night", and refers
to the darkness of self delusion. Adam and Lilith were created from the same material clay, indicating that they were 'equals' - implying that there
was no form of relationship between the two, and indeed, there was no copulation, because Lilith refused to be on the bottom. Because of lilith's
insolence and rejection of the divine dynamic, the creator banished her from the garden, where she was said to have wandered in the wilderness,
producing children with the demon Ashmodai (which can be read "fire from death"). After God realized his failure with Lilith, he created Eve - not
from the same primordial clay as Adam, but from Adam's SIDE - the word for rib in Hebrew also means "a side". Whereas Lilith rejected the metaphysical
program the creator established, and sought to be on equal terms with Adam - despite the imbalance it would cause in creation - Eve was derived from
Adam's side. She was intimately apart of Adam's being, and sought nothing other than to be subservient to Adam's call.
This dynamic is also allegorically referred to in Paradise Lost.
Lilith is the reckless emotionalism that wants to be 'free' from the burdens of conscience and reason. The reason (I'm merely extrapolating this
archetypal dynamic into psychological language. In can be understood in a more metaphysical way), symbolizes by Adam, is the active, and directive
force of the human personality. Lilith wants to be regarded as 'equal' to Adam. The emotion wants to Active, and not receptive. It doesn't want to be
led by the mind, but on the contrary, wants to be free from it. Lilith is the patron saint of Gnosticism. The emotionalism of Lilith draws man away
from the divine dynamic, where the masculine is meant to unite with the feminine in a relationship of complementarity, but Lilith subverts that
relationship by ignoring it. Thus, evil creeps in. Lilith unites with Ashmodai, and together they produce demons - millions and billions and trillions
See? There is a divine dynamic, a metaphysical system, which man is designed to live by. If we go outside its terms of existence, we unleash chaos and
destruction into the world; pain, suffering, confusion, doubt, death.... where the only remedy is a Buddhism or Taoism or Gnosticism which seeks to
transcend the metaphysical system altogether, despite the obvious malfeasance of disobeying the creators divine wisdom.
However it's elites think, is how the average laymen will think. Societies elite are gnostics who are rigging the system to serve them - and it serves
them when they have us pursuing spiritually destructive things - even things which may appear to us to be good, but in the long term, block the divine
light from entering the world, and prevent the world from fulfilling its divine purpose.
