A bunch of you do
behave like primitives around all of this stuff, wandering around the landscape with a stick, turning over rocks, and jumping
out of your skins at every new thing that you see.
Stories are like rocks.
If you do not have within you the scope of literary experience necessary to accommodate what is under the rocks, maybe you should get a library card,
or use Google, or maybe just spend more time reading and less time tending to your collection of safe, known rocks.
Seriously, it's like going to the zoo.
P.S. Also, what happened to the OP? Doesn't anyone find it interesting that the OP provided an interesting way to think about how a person can be one
day in 'heaven' and the next day trapped in 'hell'.
When you relate that to the matrioshka shell thing, it gets pretty interesting, don't you all think?
P.S.S. I don't mean to speak for the OP, but what the hell
Yeah, it seems apparent that Ophiuchus derived some of his stuff from elsewhere, namely, Ra and LKJ, I mentioned that, and the OP is fine with it.

love to revise and retell.
Because they are taking us someplace. The stories are like our Viking vessel, taking us to new and uncharted lands full of new stories to be
But the boat needs to be revised and updated. it is like the wind in its sails that takes us to these new lands.
If the boats are left in the harbour after reaching the last destination, they will rot and become useless.
Are you following me?
All of these old narratives are important, very important for getting us to wherever it is we are going. they need to be tended to and developed.
Not left as they are, they can't take us anywhere like that.
So tear them apart and use the timbers for what is next.
It is what is supposed to be done.
Take for instance the whole Blavatsky mess, that ship ran aground years ago, but people are still standing on the beach admiring the wreck.
It needs to be cannibalized for parts that are still useful and then the whole thing needs to be broken down.
Personally, I will be dismantling Carlos Castaneda's boats in an upcoming thread.
