LordD... fascinating. I wonder what made him think otherwise? Perhaps the "push" did it?
See this is what is so bothersome about "Pushing" and "Pulling." There is no "Mean" or "Median" which gives people an unbiased area to think and
rationalize the truth. That's exactly the problem with being "outliers" or "extremes" because neither extreme allows a person to be neutral to view
all the choices and topics and logically arrive at a valid conclusion and thus a valid argument to what to believe and whom to believe-in.
This is where social validation succeeds and where social invalidation fails. Ironically, where most religions fail or succeed in allowing a person
to retain their free-will. If you pressure a person, they are not going to be able to rationalize but feel the emotion of "pressure" and move toward
a homeostatic position of neutrality. It's an uncomfortable feeling the be the odd-man out. Why Althene's Theory of Everything is so important.
Everyone wants to belong, and no one wants to feel desolate and alone. Some can cope, some cannot and do horrible things to themselves and others.
This must change. Now that we know the truth or at least can see the "tip of the iceberg" of the truth, we can start to change our world for the
better. All of the things which are negative about humanity can start to be resolved and all things positive about humanity can start to be
rrealized, but first we'll need to be brutally honest with each other and ourselves. Then tackle the harder problems, but the rest is really the easy
problems, with ourselves being the most-difficult. But when we see beyond ourselves and have empathy toward others by forgiving and accepting
ourselves, that can change and it can change in a split-second.
Once we start USING those neural network pathways, we can start making them stronger and stronger by practicing our application of knowledge of the
truth. It's actually so sublime and ridiculous compared to how we think now, but is the way to the start of a path to enlightenment. When this is
done, all else will follow it.
There are so many similarities here in all things which people may have not realized.
An all-seeing eye at the top of a pyramid? The tip of the iceberg and ironically, it's shaped roughly in a pyramid shape with the water-line where
the dividing-line is on the all seeing-eye on the dollar bill.
In this respect, it's much like John The Baptist, a man of G_d, baptizing Jesus and saying "He that is after me is preferred before me."
Or the crucifixion of Jesus literally, in the Bible, and then also we also crucify Jesus again, when we go-through him, to be closer to the Father or
G_d. There is a back-story about how I came to perceive this, and the series of breadcrumbs of knowledge or wisdom being me being directed at what to
read, what to note, etc.
It does say in the Bible, that Jesus kept those who believed in his name for G_d, save one, which either is himself (this is another bit to chew-on
later,) and I kinda see this as a fail-safe like saying we leave no one behind except ourselves, or in Jesus case himself.
When we make that step from Jesus to G_d, we are figuratively crucifying him, and in reality the human race must do this to all religions and
ideologies to accept and be able to recognize what is true and what is not truth in this world. Or it will be forever mired down in all the negatives
of the universe with no light, love or hope, any of the positive aspects of what we are to be as an Image of G_d. The potential is there, we just
have to "re-make" ourselves into that "Perfect Image" or more-perfect image by refining ourselves like silver as in my SilverSmith analogy.
So we see there's the two steps which equals a third and that is truth. There's the 3 sides of the pyramid and no matter which way you turn us, it's
the same, since it's all true. If you see something wrong, just keep refining it with proof and reproof, until you know it's true.
Like Astronomy and Astrology. I know there are aspects of these two disciplines which are true, some not by omission, some just plainly incomplete.
But combined yields a third interpretation or a more-perfect image, which is truth.
It's all light.
To tell you a secret, light and sound are much in the same, it's just our "GAP" between the sense of vision and the sense of hearing, which makes it
appear to be two separate things. Sound is just slower or "down-converted" via the "Sensory Gap." We interpret it as two things. It's not.
Can you begin to see the inference I am presenting, with no bias or preaching, just allowing you to be able to decide for yourselves by presenting
information arranged in a way where it's easy to see w/out bias.
Anyway you turn it...
I'll leave you with a parable:
Luke 11:5-13 He said to them, "Which of you, if you go to a friend at midnight, and tell him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, for a friend
of mine has come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him,’ and he from within will answer and say, ‘Don’t bother me. The door
is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I can’t get up and give it to you’?
I tell you, although he will not rise and give it to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence, he will get up and give him as many
as he needs. "I tell you, keep asking, and it will be given you. Keep seeking, and you will find. Keep knocking, and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
"Which of you fathers, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he won’t give him a snake instead of a fish,
will he? Or if he asks for an egg, he won’t give him a scorpion, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?"
