(the human mind) works in what way? ...conforming to "reality"?
yeah, sure.. symbols, archetypes.. we establish and communicate these things as you said.. but they're not meaningless are they? ..the end result being "encoding" as you and i are saying
..then the next thing we (humanity) for-the-heck-of-it start launching things into space and so forth? it's more than shrugging it off as "different levels" < that's what you say to someone as you're waving goodbye on your virgin galactic tour of space with a martini in the other hand, and they're looking all hang-dogged below down on the tarmac.. (possibly left to mop someones floor for a living.. possibly left to work a double shift at hooters that night? ..some are better off than others it seems, but i don't think the creator of the universe wants things to be this way, do you?)
what's the difference in understanding between a child and someone maybe like Allen Dulles? what was the difference between members BelCastro and rickymouse?
all information is encoded.. some people "understand" higher levels than others.. some choose to pass those things on.. most will not.. most will use any small foothold they establish as some form of personal empowerment.. which is fair enough in a dog eat dog world.. but i don't think much of this world, everything i've been given was free and is simply passed along for others to consider and decode
we wouldn't even have mouths or minds to communicate with as DNA and genes would have no foundation to build upon and we'd all just be slathering masses of goo - there wouldn't even be a solar system, you know what i mean? ..you see where i'm going with this? there needs to be a foundation for things to build upon ..order ..purpose
with all due respect, you're mistaken there. the bible -does- say something "new" (if we're going to put it this way) ..this is the only "religion" that makes the bold claim, that the "God" of the universe came into the flesh and was put to death, to be the sin atonement for the one who has faith and acts accordingly. (i know this is a lot to swallow, i didn't sign up on the first day of camp either, y'know?) let's not get side-tracked on things like 'krishna' just here, or 'mithras'
lots of people want to claim the bible is all about controlling the masses.. i used to think that way too.. i still do, but i just come to realize it is more about getting the masses to control themselves
as the christ (supposedly) said; 'the one who even looks on the woman with lust in his heart has already sinned'
.(with respect) you're still on the "it all means nothing" angle, (orange is a color as well as a fruit) ..the bible says 'the tree is known by the fruit' , you think it all means nothing in the end, and people just argue over who's hat looks better?
there is a deep significance in all your terminology (funny hats, secret societies, etc) ..you're just unaware of this significance or yanking my chain? ..what is your foundation? (i'll bet it's constantly being "updated" if you know what i mean? ..whereas those who rest in the bibles foundation 'is of old')
and what "common sense" might that be? ..that some dude called jesus got nailed to a cross so we could somehow get into heaven? ..the bible isn't like all those other "religions" and beliefs, is it?
and i agree with you, ...(now) consider what the bible says; "you will know the truth and it shall set you free" (and) "...proclaim from the rooftops" (and) "noone lights a torch only to place it under a bushel"
can i just come out and say "an elite cabal of humans is intent on manifesting some kind of spiritual influence that empowers them, for lack of better terms.." (or) "the space-brothers, ashtar command, etc is a front for the 'new-age' agenda" (which is all the same thing anyway.. everyone is just being fed a slightly different variation of the same story..)
so in that topic (female illuminati) on page 9 you can follow where this is going (she just replied, "no, i'm not a mason, because i'm a woman, but i'm married to a mason..." ..i can 'recognize' this stuff from a mile away these days, hehe)
as for all the trans-gender, trans-humanism stuff in your response, well, it just so happens i've been baking a topic on all that here ..i can't really say i'm thrilled to hear you relegate all this human interaction as "time consuming"
if you go to the link above (the trans-human section) you will find the exact same statement made by myself already.. make your mind up, dear reader, am i just dribbling # or is there maybe something to be gleaned from what the bible and i are reporting in this topic?
(i wish i had 25 cents for every time i've refered to myself as a "reluctant" christian.. there is no way a so-called "sensible" person comes to believe such a thing in this day and age.. i am as wary of other "christians" and so-called 'church-folk' as you seem to be ...there is a reason i hope jesus is real, because if not.. humans are in a very strange and dark predicament)
the rest of your comment above.. uhh, kinda hard to take that seriously > "anything (over time) can be made to work, even if it doesn't work" ...this doesn't end up ringing true, consider the evolutionist inference in the statement (over time) ..when it's the evolutionist who is first to argue 'adaptation', survival of the fittest, and so forth..
we can't have things both ways ..things either 'work' or they don't (ie: evolution / symbolism) especially when / if you're going to apply them to a larger context (sink or swim?)
this is the same as when you were typing about the various layers of symbology, etc (you seem to assert they are endlessly meaningless - but they keep honing on certain points, expanding on specific spheres of information, unraveling yet deeper layers of understanding) (things either work or they don't..) ..and this is the same as when i come back here and say things that sort-of make sense, rather than come back and just posting "random things"
bit by bit... i think we're discovering this.. everything battles against the bible and reconciles with one-another while it's doing so.. and it is always the same story.. i gave up on trying to 'dispel' it long ago.. now i just accept it for what it is and try to *decode* the original story, all the parallel stories, and what it all means when taken together..
the next question simply is 'who made those aliens'? (and so on..) ...we're still going to have to deal with this "God" thing, no matter where we are in the scheme of things.. (this is the same problem 'reincarnation' eventually faces..)
Not necessarily. I seriously if there was any natural evolving species anywhere in the cosmos that they would have a concept of god or gods. Yet everything is merely derived from something else.
What I wanted to say is people on internet usually misunderstand my gender in real life
...anything worthwhile i want to do is limited by space and time. entropy, decay.. yadda yadda.. i'd really like to think i could be my own "god" (as the agenda wants people to think on various levels) ..but the thought just makes me laugh these days.. we're not talking about physical aliens that made physical humans and therefore can rightly be thought of as 'creators'
