Eso’s Chronicles 316 / 3  
It’s Not Over Until It’s Over

Ever since Emperor Alexis I of the Byzantine Empire (which included today’s Ukraine, Turkey, Romania, Greece, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Syria, etc.) killed John Basil I, an event that took place about twenty years before the First Crusade (~1204), the West has been peddling the world a monster God.

I described that Monster God in Esosblog 313, where Emperor Alexis I of Byzantium is replaced (? reincarnated) by an Emperor from the U.S. (2001-2009) by the name of George W. Bush.

In my example, Bush cuts a rubber ball into two halves, and then makes one of the halves serve as a whole and round ball, while he trashes the other half. It so happens that the other half stood (symbolically) for the poor man’s God.

The destruction of the poor man’s God was justified by the pseudo-scientific fact that poor people are thieves, drug peddlers, live in shanty town quarters where houses are made of cardboard and tin, and smell bad. In short, the poor man’s God is none other than the Devil himself. The ‘good’ half of the ball, made whole by the military might of the Byzantine and U.S. empires, serves all the ‘good’ people, who are wealthy and do not have to worry about living the ‘good life’ when they are old enough for retirement.

This is not to say that either the Byzantine or U.S. empires invented the God of two halves, but is a left-over from the time when human beings did not fear death because they did not believe in death. No doubt, death occurred, but nature had its own ‘living’ graveyards: the tummies of wolves, vultures, and sea gulls.

Way back when—a valid time though vague and no specific date can be given—when humans still were not quite human, but stood on the cusp of being humanoids and not yet quite human, they did not believe in either death or good or evil. As we just read: evidence of death quickly disappeared.

It was a time when these deathless creatures not quite ready yet to be full blown scientists, believed that God was a Big Ball. According to these homo ne-sapiens God was big enough to contain both good and evil.

It was a strange belief. The homo ne-sapiens visualized the God-Ball as empty as a baby’s rattle: when ne-sapiens rattled God, they heard the rattle of, both, the good and the bad and could not tell the difference between the noises of the objects (one could not tell if the ball contained one or two) inside the ball.

The early forerunners to our ‘scientific age’, which evicted our forebears from the wood, were the ‘creators’ of early forts. The forts, in turn, were early examples of our modern cities and the urban environment.

Our cities are, indeed, the creations of war. I was given this revelation by a French urban philosopher (whose parents were Italian immigrants) by the name of Paul Virilio . Since the French (originally known as Franks, descendants of Vikings) practically invented war, he should know.

The longer wars lasted, the more complex the forts became. While at first, a fort was protected by a wall, later hominids replaced the wall with ‘streets’, which were a clever inversion of the wall—a replacement of a + space with a negative or minus space. In the case of the latter, the houses that stood between the streets actually were walls . An enemy who broke into, say, ancient Troy had to conquer every house between the streets and in hand-to-hand combat machinegun every residents before moving on to the next house.

One does not have to be a scientist to realize that machine-gunning every resident in every house is a long process. When homo ne-sapiens lived in the wood and could go hide behind a tree when a Viking came throwing a spear at him or hersen, then reemerge as ten hims and hersens (one from behind every tree) and puncture the would be Empire builder ten times over. Following imprisonment into apartments there was no such advantage. Every room has only four corners, and in cities these corners have no trees growing as a kind of natural protection against imprisonment, enslavement, or death.

Therefore, when death was pronounced with a capital D, it came to possess the mind and imaginations of homo ne-sapiens, who then renamed themselves as homo sapiens .

Ever since Troy (or even earlier) homo sapiens have regarded themselves as ‘wise’ scientists. As such, we have discarded God as a device created by the poor, and began a campaign that would rename homo sapiens for ‘atheists’. Atheists believe, of course, in the ‘goodness’ of atheists and atheism.

What homo sapiens and atheists miss out on is the enjoyment of God as an undivided Big Ball, wherein ‘good’ and ‘bad’ coexist, and Death does not exist. According to homo ne-sapiens, death takes only the body, but leaves the Mind alive; and the Mind is clever enough (at least in Indonesia) to reincarnate itself every four generations in one and the same family . The reincarnation takes care of all the ‘bad’ stuff that takes place while he or hersens were absent. True, the Tibetan monks believe that their Dalai Lama is ‘good’ enough to reincarnate himself right away and that, therefore, the world is better right away. But this is probably, because Tibetan monks do not marry, which is why any child born at the moment of a Dalai Lama’s death is potentially that same Dalai Lama.. However, the Chinese homo sapiens deny this, and pretty much act the way of the early Western Christians (among which was one St. Augustine who ‘wisely’ invented a ‘just war’) and want to eliminate Tibetan spiritual beliefs, which includes the belief that God is One Whole (undivided) Round Ball.

The moral of this story: if you cut a ball in half and then blow up one of the halves in such a way that it resembles an undivided half, you create a Monster God, Who makes perpetual war on those who believe in being Mindful of the ‘poor’ discarded other half.
