Hi Hanslune, thought I would attempt to get back to you while I was on my desktop as my more eloquent or well constructed posts are harder to flesh
out on mobile, posting links, pictures, etc is all a major pain in the anus.
So let's get started shall we?
Yes he made up a story to support his idea of utopia, have you read Meropis?
Mind citing definitive proof that he made it up to support an idea? You can't just say "Yeah Plato made up allegories to define utopia." without
proving how you know that he decided that. This phrase was kind of irrelevant though.
I did I found it boring and full of made up stuff...but I did find Crowley amusing
Oh; So Madame Blavatsky was just lying through her teeth about the atom then, huh? There is a good deal of truth in the occult study if done through
the path of experience. Some things can not be told but must be experienced.
Evidence from peer Greeks sources for this claim?
This would be a bit hard to prove since being in the mystery schools was a lot like being Tyler Durden in Fight Club; the first rule is: You do not
talk about the Schools. However, I would be happy to share with you some links that give an overview.
There were two Eleusinian Mysteries, the Greater and the Lesser. According to Thomas Taylor, "the dramatic shows of the Lesser Mysteries occultly
signified the miseries of the soul while in subjection to the body, so those of the Greater obscurely intimated, by mystic and splendid visions, the
felicity of the soul both here and hereafter, when purified from the defilements of a material nature and constantly elevated to the realities of
intellectual [spiritual] vision." And that according to Plato, "the ultimate design of the Mysteries … was to lead us back to the principles from
which we descended, … a perfect enjoyment of intellectual [spiritual] good."
They are called tombs because they buried the dead Pharaohs there, the AE were obsessed with death.....in your opinion where DID they bury all these
Well if the Great Pyramids were tombs; mind showing me some bodies of these supposed pharaohs that they wasted a lot of time and labor to build tombs
for; yet they never found? Thieves couldn't have stolen all the bodies could they? What use would they have had for a body? Necrophilia? In your
opinion, where did all these dead pharaohs go for lack of being in the pyramids?
To address the question of why people would be buried around the pyramids; I could say that it is possible they are slaves or workers who died during
construction or possibly is the origin of the tradition to bury dead outside of holy or significantly religious institutions, churches, monasteries,
Just because all the kids said smoking cigarettes is cool, doesn't mean they are. Just like if all the scientists in the world agreed upon something;
it doesn't mean it's distinctly true or has cause and effect upon me. I care not for what or how other people tell me to think.
