EC 531

Upon Whom the Ends

of the Ages Have Come…

A fantasy for an Apocalypse

A long time ago the author climbed a tree in New Hampshire (US) and thought the event worth recording in a short column of a once Boston weekly known as ‘The Boston Ledger’. [No link to such a name can found at Google, whereby the paper is now gone „Poof!”] I have not yet got into a sandbox or at least have not recorded it. But there are plenty of issues that have been let slip, that should not have been. Herewith, one such...

Is Heaven for Oligarchs Only?

When the Indian Maharajas took control of the Indian subcontinent, an event that took place before the invasion of India by the Muslims and later the British colonialists (who did not improve matters one whit), most of the Indian people who had lived in the wood and off the countryside, were turned into so-called Untouchables or Dalits.  

Unlike the God-lovers or Bogomils, also Throne Makers or Cathars, who rose up against their Viking oppressors and drove them out of the Black Sea area toward the West and Brussels, and established their realm (wood and field) under the herders, known as Johns (+Ian, Ivan, Johann, Hans, Huand, etc,), the Indian people of like life-style known by the name of Ganesh succumbed to the Vikings or Vedics or ārya (the noble ones), or as we might call them today, ‘academics’. Incidentally, ārya means āra (ahra) and ārieshi (exogamist) in Baltic languages, which words correspond to outside and outsiders in English.

While the chronology of the events at the Black Sea here discussed is in need of resynchronization, I strongly suspect that the correlation between the two (actually three) events that took place there is close.

For example, when the Maharajah (of the Indian subcontinent) went to cut down the wood, he was met by women who hugged trees so tightly that they had to be destroyed. This event corresponds in severity and symbols involved to John Basil being thrown into a pit of burning logs in the city of Constantinople. When we look at the image of Jesus Christ hung on a tree, our attention is distracted from the noose around his neck by several devices such as a foot rest with nails driven in the feet, arms stretched straight instead of sagging, a sign above the head to hide the image of an old and dying moon that represents a garrot or noose; only in some of the old icons with the Russian orthodox cross do we catch a glimpse of how the Eastern Christians interpreted the Catholic depiction of how the Church put to death its victim. Especially noteworthy is the slanted footrest, which when pivoted straight (on a single nail) either by an executioner or the failing strength of the victim causes the body of the victim to sag, the arms to form a V, and the noose around the neck to tighten and cause death as if the victim were a suicide.

The correlation between today’s rise of the oligarchs and the decline of the middle class opens the door to a future class, perhaps known as the Damned or Untouchable. Even so, the prediction of the arrival of the Eschaton by the Bogomils and Eastern Christians (which includes Muslims), ties their descendants—even Catholic Christians—to a self-sacrificial mode of resistance entertained and begun by the Muslims and brought to Europe and soon America.

Georges Bataille, who I mention at the beginning (see ‘Theological Umbrella’) of this series of 41 blogs, writes* “The millennial quest for lost intimacy was abandoned by productive mankind, aware of the futility of the operative ways, but unable to continue searching for that which could not be sought merely by the means it had. Man began to say: ‘Let us construct a world whose productive forces grow more and more. We shall meet more and more of our material needs.’ It soon became apparent that by becoming man of the autonomous being, man was becoming more estranged from himself than ever before.

*Georges Bataille, Theory of Religion, Zone Books, 1991, PB, p 92.

The loss of intimacy is increasingly being replaced by what is known as ‘near death experience’ (NDE) of which movement the most recent expounder is a neurosurgeon teaching at Harvard University Medical School in Boston by the name of Alexander Eben. Convincing as Dr. Eben’s experience may be, one is put off by his insistence that the ‘other world’ is utterly nonjudgmental and exudes only love. Granted that Dr. Eben is speaking of an encounter with God, but even so, he apparently has no notion of so-called last judgment, as, for example, is experienced by those who have a profound psychic experience through the Amazon brew known as Ayahuasca and which experience was also a part of the Egyptian religious experience* known as the "Weighing of the Heart".

*If the Russian chronologist of history Anatoly Fomenko is correct that the ancient Egyptian temples are essentially Christian temples, then this observation is invalid in so far as it is here ascribed to the Egyptians alone.

One of the facts put before post-modern humankind by George Bataille’s proposition (see above) is whether indeed “No one disputes the principle of this sovereignty of servitude [to production of things]…” put forth by a government subservient to banks and industry.

From the events that surround us on a daily basis, we  know that arguments and discussions have begun. The prophets tell us that a war of major proportions is on. A defense and recapture of holy things has always been a violent enterprise. It will not be different now.
