From birth on we are conditioned into belief systems and believe to know “the ultimate truth“, assuming that all generations beforehand were fools. Yet the fact is that believes did change throughout history, so much even, that they did turn around not only by 180°, but that even multiple times.
Most humans do get their own beliefs strengthened when being affirmed by others.
In one way this is good, because fine-tuning ones own beliefs protects us from becoming deranged;
on the other hand, however, this often leads to believers wanting to strengthen their community by proselytising others, which in the end leads to an ever growing emotional resistance from either members of another faith or atheists.
This article deals with the horizontal Axis of
Atheists < ————————- vs ———————> Believers in a personified God
and therewith is a crossover post of two other series:
1.) It is part 5 of the series: Keys to understanding the universe and connects straight to part 2: up, down, left and right,
2.) And it is a continuation on the series about Religion.
Instead of joining the countless, endless and useless ping-pong games of throwing back and forth individual opinions;
I decided to approach this subject in a scientific way,
starting from an agnostic point of not knowing whether god exists, and not accepting the circular reasoning of referring to a single religious book, in order not to favour any direction.
In this article you will find an intellectual exploration of the evolution of monotheism,
and in order to look at the issues from all angles,
and in the next article I will deal with the intuitive part of the divne,
and will observe the vertical axis between material vs spiritual consciousness .
It took me an entire year to find an objective approach for this subjective matter.
1.) the oneness in the womb.
a.) The internal (esoteric) view correlating to the nervous system
The history of religion shows that the first indices of religion were burial sites, which are an homage to “mother earth” and the internal self.
There was Eru, the one are the first words of Tolkien’s the Silmarillion – the book which introduces the entire mythology of the Lord of the Rings.
In the womb, initially everything is one,
because there is no separation from the external world and the self.
Bible: Genesis 1:2: “the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters“.
b.) The external (exoteric) view
Correlating to amniotic fluid is the scientific theory of the Soviet biologist Alexander Oparin from 1924 who proposed the theory of the primordial chemical carbon- based solution, which was triggered by an external energy source to form life.
So human kind’s very first experience which shaped our deep instinct, is that there is a oneness which is larger than our body-self-perception.
2.) The Sun
After birth the senses, such as the eyes and ears evolve.
Genesis 1:3 “And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”Two Bible-quotes shared by all 3 abrahamic religions: Jews, Christians, and Muslims
John 1:3 “In the beginning was the Word”
The first impression usually is the strongest, so it is no surprise that when the first external influence enters our life it replaces our previous but undefined sense of self with an appreciation for the first reference point in our lifes.
You only can define a size if you have at least two reference points, so whilst life in the womb was totally holistic, now came the time when we started to be able to perceive ourselves.
Brahma: “let me have a self”Hinduism
The most predominant external energy source to the earth obviously is the sun. This is how the atheistic as well as the religious views come together:
Ancient enlightened Indians, called Rishis, did since a long time perceive the influence of the sun. When western people still were savages, they already knew that the sun was the source of the light of the moon, and the Sanskrit language already had time units which range from durations as small as the duration of light rays up to the vastness of the age of our universe.
From there the teachings spread on one hand to Egypt in the form of the Sungod Ra …
Astrology btw is not the superficial future-telling pseudoscience it is made out to be in woman’s magazines, but the reflection of the elaborate ancient greek descriptions of the human personality by the means of deities, such as Mars for warlike energies or Venus for love.
This 3 minute video shows that there was such a vast knowledge about astronomy,
that many are convinced that higher evolved civilisations were in contact with ours.
So how did humankind jump from a profound understanding of the universe to a version of “the one and only” god?
3. The western personification of god
The main reason why atheists cringe at the word “god” is because of the attached dogma of one being a ‘sinner’ who only is saved by salvation of a higher authority one has to belief in and be subservient to.
This dogma, however is by no means as ancient as we are made to believe.
My personal view is that planet earth, like our body,
has a conscious and subconscious part,
the former correlating to the north-west and the latter to the south-east.
So whilst the East did approach this subject by subscribing to intuitive experiences of wise people;
in the West, intellectual dogmata became predominant:
This is maybe why spirituality intuitively was understood in the South-East, whilst in the North-West it had to undergo a myriad of god concepts and misunderstandings.
The decline of Western strength and intuition
Old western religions initially had a very good intuition for gender roles, the place of when to use female yin and male yang, and a clear sense for justice.
Our natural intuition was forcefully replaced by the means of religious wars with the dogma of one personified higher force, designed to cultivate an obedience towards authoritative institutions in order to guarantee devotees.
Up to this day witchcraft, magic and paganism are shunned by Christianity and Islam, and western spirituality is marginalised into the corner of occultism – a word, which to mainstreamers equals ‘darkness’, whilst the true meaning of the word means ‘hidden’ (as you can see in the medical term ‘occult blood‘.
The western spiritual traditions and secret orders:
Since occultism nowadays is marginalised into secrecy,
here is a 1-paragraph-summary of this incredible vast subject:
Most Western paths stem from the tradition of the believe in the sun as mentioned above, which was re-cultivated by the pharao Akhenaten – as the name implies “the prayer to the sun (Athon).
From here many mystery schools, such as the Rosicrucians, the Freemasons, emerged,
and out of them mixtures, such as the Ordo Templis Orientis arouse,
which bright spirits, such as Rudolf Steiner, but also dubious ones, such as the black magician Alestair Crowley, or the founder of Scientology Ron Hubbard were members of.
Helena Blavatski together with Steiner created a synthesis of Eastern and Western knowledge, the Theosophic society.
Freemasonry with its men-only-policy is antiquated,The question now is why and how the occult holistic understanding of a monotheism, directed at the sun was turned towards a personified god.
and it’s old boys network ethically dubious for distorting fair chances for non members by giving theirs significant advantages.
Crowley (who was very spiritual advanced and versatile) and Hubbard, both unfortunately descended into egotism – Scientology’s book ‘Dianetics‘ is nothing more than a fashionable conglomeration of OTO-knowledge.
The following 25 minute video excerpt explains how mankind’s planetary wisdom was perverted into a humanised version of a creator god:
Due to our contemporary subscription to merely worldly values, people nowadays are afraid to loose material values, such as their possessions or their body – both values which are limited to this life only.
The fear of death did evolve into society which at first seems to protect the weak,
but in the longterm is full of pathological norms which allow for devious but spineless lawyers, politicians, and business people to dominate strong and authentic warriors.
True male powers, such as a courage to stand up for ones’ opinion today are replaced with cowardice hiding behind political correctness, female virtues such as poise, dignity or serenity are channeled into a destructive feminism, which is more concerned in copying and accusing men, than to shine as a true woman, and our access to god(s) is degraded into empty rituals performed by self-declared authorities.
To finish part 1, I leave you with a fascinating rarely known Western version of human evolution:
