I combine a strong mind, with a devotion to a way of life as well. The way of life which I adhere to is historical accuracy and truth, over spiritual
feelings. I see Yahweh as the evolution of spiritual powers born in the cradle of civilization. Not necessarily better, or more powerful, but as
another limb on the magnificent Tree of Life.
My area of expertise began with Kabbalah, the Jewish wisdom-school, and evolved into Qabala, the theosophical wisdom-school aligning Jewish and
Christian beliefs with world religions.
From there, I just back-tracked and discovered the overlapping qualities in title, function, myth, legend, appearance, name, and traits which resound
throughout the middle east. Beyond just the Canaanite EL, and the Levantine IL, I looked at the evolution of mythology from the Sumerian Ziusudra
flood story, to Enki and Ninhursag's creation of man from clay and breath, and Babylon's creation epic, along with others.
I have a fairly well-grounded understanding of the mystical Christ, and the divine name YHVH, but I am not a Christian, so my knowledge is probably
lacking, ultimately, when compared to your own. Where I am well versed is in the history, myth, ritual, practice, and beliefs of the Sumerians,
Semites, and people of Kem. I know a little about Zoroaster and Zoroastrianism, but have admittedly not chosen to pursue it further.
All in all, whichever angle things unfold from, it will be nice to talk with someone versed in the mystical and spiritual lore of Christianity and
Judaism. I so infrequently find people like yourself in the operative world, and its hard for me to talk about the overlaps, and similarities with
people who have no knowledge of Sumer, Babylon, Egypt, the Canaanite, Anatolia, and the Hittite/Hurrian peoples.
I am a patient man though, so by all means, continue the thread in the direction you intended, and when we come to the subject matter, I will happily
discuss it with you further. You seem to have a lot in mind on the subject matter here, and I don't want you to derail the forward momentum you were
