My mind likes to ponder the linguistic symbols used in the Bible. As I make more connections daily, a larger, more modern view of the Bible starts to
emerge. I have always been fascinated with the Flaming Sword that protects the tree of life. Let me give you a modern twist to this story. From
this view, it might be possible to see something hidden from our view. Nature provides the answers.
First, we need to see how reality is rendered from archetype. An acorn has a 75 foot oak tree enfolded into the DNA of the seed. The oak three then
imprints this code into the multiplicity of acorns that form the forest. The branches of these trees then hold eggs that repeat the process from a
different domain of nature. Birds then feed on insects that feed on the various other chains in the system and so on it goes. In all of this, the
central essences is the archetypes and forms rendered by Word.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
Of course, with darkness, there are no forms and without light, there is no illumination of forms. Light reveals what it hits, but is not seen. We
see what light illuminates (See this thread regarding Particles as Voxels
also tell a story that then illuminate our mind further. The branches of this tree are endless. Compare this to the Fruit of knowledge that we glean
from the Tree of Life.
In Revelation 13, we read this:
15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship
the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on
their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e] That number is 666.
Dissect this into modern language. Breath is the ability to communicate. Communications is locked in an image. So far so good. We have a parallel
to the statements above. We also have a commerce system built form the image (Fruit of Knoweldge / Technology) and moved by the communication system
of our own word (Internet / Programming). We have a beast (Animal Nature). This beast must be seen with wisdom, not just knowledge. Wisdom sees
beyond the knowing and realizes the significance. Knowledge is built on facts, but wisdom connects the larger context. Carbon has 6 protons, 6
electrons and 6 neutrons. It is the mark of life (Mankind) and is the basis for our fruit of knowledge (Technology). The Breath of God is Nitrogen
(777) and Oxygen (888). Both numbers for the breath have great significance in the Bible.
How does this fit with the flaming sword? We need to ask another question. What was God protecting with that sword? The tree of life. What is the
essence of the acorn again? WORD / INFORMATION / PROGRAMMING.
Now, lets see if we can use wisdom to connect the context together.
21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us,
knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 23 So the Lord
God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side[e]
of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
First, Adam receives a material body of the animal. Adam now knows opposites. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand for DNA and live forever.
God banished him from the Garden of Eden (Paradise / Eternal / No entropy) and sent him to the ground (Matter). See this thread:
Two Creations - Genesis 1 is Paradise - Genesis 2 is Material
. This knowledge of two
creations allows us to see why the LORD was sent to Shepherd us back to God. As children, we must learn before we partake.
Now for the answer to the thread. What is the flaming sWord? If the Word is DNA and the tree of life is how DNA (WORD) is rendered to form, then the
thing that protects it is the same thing we use today to protect our own information. Encryption. The gateway to the other side is closed and
impenetrable. 360 degrees in a circle, right to left, the gateway is protected. Human understanding cannot break the encryption. Other places in
the Bible call it a double edged sword. Double layers of encryption in all directions.
Humpty Dumpty gives you the answer.
Through the Looking Glass:
`And only one for birthday presents, you know. There's glory for you!'
`I don't know what you mean by "glory,"' Alice said.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. `Of course you don't -- till I tell you. I meant, "there's a nice knock-down argument for you!"
`But "glory" doesn't mean "a nice knock-down argument,"' Alice objected.
`When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.
`The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.'
`The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master - - that's all.'
Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again.
`They've a temper, some of them -- particularly verbs, they're the proudest -- adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs -- however, I can
manage the whole of them! Impenetrability! That's what I say!'
---Which is to be master? God or Man?
Literal interpretation of Humpty Riddle:
Man sat on the wall of choice when he was vulnerable like an egg on a wall.
Man took knowledge and used it before he was ready (before the egg hatched), and had a great fall (from God’s grace). If he had just waited, he
would have become his potential by hatching.
All of the King’s tools (technology) and all of the King’s men (Alchemists/Scientists/Mathematicians) could not put man back in his place of glory
The Egg cannot hatch apart form God's intervention. We would destroy ourselves trying.
22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 23 At that time if
anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear
and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time.
What are all our Chemists/Scientists/Mathematicians telling us? Through technology, we will save you. We can live forever if we only break the code.
Impenetrability! That's what I say!' It all ends in fire and God told us all along.
Which is to be master. Choose:
1) 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree
that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
2) 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you
will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
