2Is Conscsns Intlgnt? (13)

The answer to the question posed by the header is NO! To feel pain—as any pig conscious of being slaughtered will tell—has nothing to do with so-called conscious human beings slaughtering it. Warning! Gruesome murder of pig scenario. The Beast is not the pig, but the humans involved.

No Christian theologian from either populist or academic circles has been as innovative and damning of Post-Modern Times religion’ as Melinda (click 8:50) from Alaska. The angel—if listened to—does more to revitalize Christianity* than all the popes, archbishops, bishops, and lays put together.

*Christianity—a dead in the water faith for a very long time. The near death experiences (ndes) that have the potential of revitalizing it are being denied by the Eclisiastical and secular establishments for all its worth. For this reason, while Resurrection continues to be promoted by the Churches as a real possibility, nde—though part of the experience of thousands—continues to be denied. By having the courage to tell that after death we rejoin the one and only Ego or God, Melinda does two things: a) denies the idea of individualism that attaches itself to our mortal bodies and seeks immortality; b) makes death in defense of God a real phenomenon again, because it is no longer feared.

Christianity likely evolved as a tool with which to check and mitigate the effects of newly arrived consciousness and language on the no less new ego. Self-sacrifice was one of the means of social self-control that religion (belief in a superior intelligence) found useful. Unfortunately, this tool was abandoned as soon as the ego, after proclaiming itself resurrectionable, discovered the effectiveness of violence and pain in forcing others to become subjects and slaves. God is sufficient unto Himself. He does not need a “government” of risen dead, to replace Him.

The problem of consciousness in our time is to try bringing the berserk egos of the violent ones back to sanity. There are many ways to try do this. Stalin tried to do it by killing the allegedly violent ones. It did not work. Others say leave it to God. It does not appear to work either. The problem is critical as one of the most powerful nations of our time, the United States of America, is promoting a culture of violence by teaching that ‘freedom’ to thieve and exploit is to capitalize on intelligence.

Such intelligence has nothing in common with morality, but is entirely dependent on simple mathematics as a tool for accountants of accumulated capital. The U.S. has been successful in its self-righteously legalistic* and violent culture by making good use of the tools used by elitist governments (Holy Roman Empire—of Germany, France, Spain; Great Britain, etc.) that preceded its own. Its beginnings, rooted in Catholic Christianity, have by our day turned Christianity into a ‘fundamentalist’ dogma that serves the secular government better than it ever served or serves God.

*’Legal’ is a concept invented by writing, a device useful in turning any living being into a ‘thing’, even as ‘legalization’ is legitimized by a Court, which is a beastly Thing or Juggernaut sometimes also known as a Robot**. **Robot (rhymes with Lobot) stands for lobotomized intelligence. While writing appears to be a useful tool, its unfortunate byproduct is ‘legalized’ repression and denial of the spoken word, which has been turned into a synonym for a ‘lie’.

Even as I write, NATO—a military organization created by U.S. and European elites, both—is threatening Russia with military maneuvers that could well be a thinly disguised Barbarosa II. Washington and Brussels need to have a ring put in their nose and it given a hard (and painful) jerk.

What is this ‘ring in the nose’? I will use psychologist Carl Jung’s image for it—the Uroboros.

Once come into being, Uroboros evolves into yet another being known as Kirti Mukha. This being (well known in ancient times) is almost unknown today, though the story of King Oedipus (a western version of the story of Kirti Mukha) is the founding story of Europe. Here’s, briefly, the story:

The first act of the Uroboros—after God created it—was to grasp its tail in its teeth and begin to devour itself. It did this because God the Creator, Who had also created Eurobora, took such pleasure in his creation of the feminine that He hid her from Uroboros. Euroboros, finding no pleasure in being created a standalone, wished to return to his Creator. In effect, Euroboros wished to die.

After devouring his tail and body, Uroboros ate his way to his face, which he could not devour. Not surprisingly, what had heretofore been pleasure, turned into rage of one hungry. For this reason the Face of Euroboros and its contortions became known as The Face of Glory.

Because the Face of Glory was ready to devour everything that came its way, God made it the guardian of the gates of Heaven. God was happy to leave Euroboros (life manifest as become dead) let Him have His pleasure with Eurobora*.

*Eurobora—may at first have been a She who created God, who later claimed to be the God of Creation and Her, Eurobora, as well.

Eurobora (whether Creatrix or created) did not enjoy the advances of God. Though God loved her, Eurobora perceived His advances as rape, and sought to escape.

Eurobora was aware that Euroboros, her destined mate, was devouring himself. She also noted that as Euroboros excreted the devoured matter of himself, it turned into an old man, whom God did not mind becoming the eunuch of his harem. In fact, though of excrement, God, wishing to prove how nice He really was, let the eunuch, known as Europapa into Paradise.

It was not a good idea.

Europapa was not as aggressive a dragon as Euroboros, but the very opposite—a well of tears from which flowed a river known as The Wound or Rehta or Lethe*.

*Rehta = wound in Latvian; Lethe = ?wound in Greek. I realize this is not what Wikipedia tells what Lethe means,  but then my tracing of words is based on such pareidolia as results from the shifting of sounds among consonants, such as L to R or V to B.

Eurobora felt sorry for the Old Man, which is why she came to visit him and comforted him by stroking his beard. Such kindness made Europapa fall into a happy slumber*. This made God jealous and to keep Eurobora from visiting the Old Man, God turned her into a cow, who for that reason could come visit Europapa only when lack of intimate companionship made him want to copulate with anyone or thing.

*Some forty or fifty years ago, I read a book by the psychologist Erik Erikson, the name of which book may have been “Identity and the Life Cycle” or “Ghandi’s Truth”. Erikson mentions that as Mahatma Gandhi grew old, he was on occasion seized by fits of shivering, which only an embrace of the women of his ashram could still. I am reminded of this story as a similar kindness of a younger woman at my age would stand me a no lesser favor.

Europapa’s desire for Eurobora, which arose just before sunrise, turned him into a white bull and he wasted no time mounting her.

As a consequence of their secretive love affair and nocturnal meetings Eurobora conceived and bore a daughter. In memory of her and Europapa’s elopement from God’s ‘Paradise’, conceivably imaginable as the Cave of the Minotaur*, she was named Eulopa. Others came to call Eulopa Caprice or the Golden Calf. The latter, because the girl grew up as an orphan (Eurobora had to bear her while on the run) possibly in Spain, where she became known as queen Isabella I or reina de El Dorada. No doubt, her name today would be ‘la emperatriz del Entitlementa or la emperatriz de lecho (my use of de lecho derived from derecho).
*Mino- or Mini = an old word for number ‘One’; as in “Ini, Mini, Mani, Mo” or One, Two, Many, More.

The founding story of Thebes may derive from a version of above myth of Euroboros and Eurobora and the Creator God’s sense of entitlement to the feminine. The ‘sense of entitlement’ (a synonym for stealing) explains the Deus ex mahina of the play Oedipus Rex Rewritten, the story of which begins with the King of Thebes, one Laius, falling in love with Iocaste, who as a whore (along with her sister Meirope) is plying her trade in Corinth, a city on the other side of Mt. Cytheron in ancient Greece. Unbeknownst to the king, Iocaste is pregnant when she marries him. She is carrying Oedipus, conceived from an unknown father. But the King accepts the story that the child is his, which sets the stage for Iocaste to exercise her sense of entitlement on behalf of her son. To accomplish this, she is ready to kill King Laius, her cuckolded husband, after which deed she marries her son, who—through this ‘legalism’—becomes King of Thebes.

The story and myth is a sticky one and kaleidoscopes forward into a tale that sees the entire household of King Oedipus killed. The dynasty of the king Cadmus ends*, when his two sons (Eteokles and Polynices) kill each other at Thebe’s Seventh Gate. The only one who escapes death—though not the tragedy—is Oedipus youngest daughter Ismene, who we may compare to aforementioned Eulopa—she who escapes to reincarnate the plague in another time, even our own.

*The multiple deaths that visit the Court of Oedipus is a story teller’ device to indicate that the cause of the deaths is of one and the same Ego, i.e., the Ego of the Euroboros and Kirti Mukha.
