Metaphysics and Myth

 Metaphysics and Myth

A nearly six hour stream in which Dr Kevin McCairn discusses a paper which shows Beta Amyloid identified In Young Covid patients and also information that vaccines don’t stop long hauler syndrome.  From 2:29 onward Dr Kevin McCairn hosts a conversation in which I join him to discuss metaphysics.  The conversation is partly a response to the ideas brought forward by Christopher Jon Bjerknes (CJB) in his book Satanic Secrets of Jesus Christ  wherein he portrays Christianity as part of a Jewish plot to subject the world.   I already pointed out that this argument is logically flawed and inconsistent as the Jews attempted to subvert Christianity and adsorb it back into Judaism from its very inception in the first century.  Moreover Christianity has always stood as a bulwark against Bolshevism which attempted to destroy Christianity.  Internationalism (globalism) and/or communism has always understood Christianity as the enemy.  Three previous videos dealing with these matters are the following:

The Caodemon (discussing issues raised by CJB’s book) and Are you listening to a Pied Piper? (debunking claims about the scapegoat and the LXX) and the video that deals with matters raised by Eric from Hot Topikz called Blood sport or debate?

Christopher Jon Bjerknes’ theories are derived from the Christ Myth Theory which has been rejected as a fringe theory by virtually all scholars.  CJB adds an extra twist to this theory by arguing that Jewish Scripture was originally written in Alexandria as a recasting of Greek myth into a Hebrew worldview in which Gentiles would be convinced to reject their old (better gods) for a mythical (Satanic) Christ by adopting Christianity, a religion designed to deceive them and weaken them  and prepare them for Jewish subjection.

History

The enlightenment brought the age of reason and “science” and the fall of totalitarianism in the twentieth century saw the truth as an artifact that could be subverted by ideologues and therefore absolute truth was neutralized by post-modernism and post-truth.  In this view all truth is relative but where does that leave historical truth?  Can anything concrete be know about the past?  Historical revisionism can be legitimate pursuit if driven by new evidence or it can be negationism (distortion or denial of history for nefarious purposes). History is, after all written by the victors and therefore seldom unbiased. The post -enlightenment era saw the rise of deconstructionism and biblical-criticism which are useful tools when employed holistically.[1]

The question of the existence of Christ as a real historical person is not doubted by most scholars (biblical and historical). It is strange that the historical reality of Christ should be asked to meet higher criteria of proof than other historical personages.  If we do not have epistemological clarity then we can never have ontological certainty and the world and our place in it can never be know or understood. Methodological approaches are therefore fundamental to determining meaning and therefore I suggest understanding the text as literature and how it interacts intertextually both with itself (inner biblical exegesis) and externally (with myth).  No single text exists in a vacuum the meaning is formed by other texts and in doing so the text transcends its boundaries.  The biblical text is great literature but it is more than that it is theology and history as well and herein lies the difficulty as it does not fall into easily defined categories.  Underneath the live stream video I place links to videos looking at different approaches that need to be integrated in order to achieve a holistic understanding of the text.

Myth

All cultures have myths about the “gods” and they all reflect a certain cosmogny related to cyclical patterns of destruction and rebirth.  The story of Noah is found in Sumerian myths and in many other cultures [2] and seems to be related to a Heinrich event with the melting of ice sheets and sudden climate change. Interestingly, the biblical ark came to rest on Mt Ararat which is close to the most ancient continuously cultivated vineyards for 8,000 years [3] complimenting the biblical account of Noah planting a vineyard. Traumatic catastrophes are preserved across cultures  and they are related to repeating cosmic events which the ancients knew how to calculate. The cosmogony of Israel and its Zodiacal arrangement shows an awareness of wider ancient myth and deconstruction and demythologizing (reinterpretation) whereby the twelve tribes become the zodiac and the Sanhedrin become the 70 gods or rulers (Elohim) who will eventually judge the 70 nations (Gen 10). [4]   In this theology heaven has come down to earth and Yahweh is enthroned among his people.  This suggest that the knowledge of cosmic patterns transited the Younger Dryas boundary. [5]   The ubiquity of the myths across cultures suggests that the ancients were aware of the cyclical nature of destruction but that over time that knowledge was lost.  The question is whether the Jews preserved the knowledge through a group evolutionary strategy or whether it was the product of revelation.

The Jewish Question

"As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes" (Rom 11:28).

Any look at the Jewish question must be nuanced and balanced. Not all Jews are supremacists neither did all Jews support Bolshevism.  The Jewish people themselves have been subject to abuse by a privileged class who think nothing of sacrificing  them on the altar of their ambition. It was the same in the first century when a priestly aristocracy and ruling class exploited the poor.   It is not antisemitic to note that all the levers of power are now in the hands of the Jews, neither is it antisemitic to note that the early church was persecuted and subverted by the Jews.  The apostle Paul makes it perfectly clear that they are contrary or hostile (NKJ), or oppose (NIV) all men. Paul believes that they are hateful towards other races.

"For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:  Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men" (1 Thess 2:14-15).

Jesus says their Father (talking about the rulers) was a liar and a murder from the beginning (an obvious reference to the serpent):

"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it" (John 8:44).

This is very strong condemnatory language that reflects the persecutions that the church was facing, nevertheless it must be balanced against the wider purpose of divine mercy towards the Jews  and their repentance and in-gathering.

"For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?"  (Rom 11:15).

What about other religions? Are only Christians saved?

This is a challenge that is often heard. There are nearly 8 billion people on earth are only Christians going to be saved?  In fact, many would answer that only their sub-set of Christianity is worthy and everyone else will burn in hell (lolz).  Another remark is that the Abrahamic religions are contentious in comparison to the more harmonious eastern philosophies.  This may be due to other factors beside religion including national temperament and whether or not they are a regional minority or majority. First let us look at the distribution of world religions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We see that the Abrahamic religions make up about 56% of total religions and when we add unaffiliated (mostly atheist or humanist) we account for 72% of the world population leaving 28% non-Abrahamic religions.  Note that Judaism is not even on this chart because it represents only 0.2% of the global population.  The two biggest non-Abrahamic religions are Hinduism and Buddhism. Hinduism includes a diversity of ideas on spirituality and traditions, but has no ecclesiastical order, no unquestionable religious authorities, no governing body, no prophet(s) nor any binding holy book; Hindus can choose to be polytheistic, pantheistic, panentheistic, pandeistic, henotheistic, monotheistic, monistic, agnostic, atheistic or humanist.  Hinduism has a belief in rebirth and cycles. Buddhists believe that the human life is one of suffering, and that meditation, spiritual and physical labor, and good behavior are the ways to achieve enlightenment, or nirvana.

Christianity is a universal religion in that opportunity is extended to all men regardless of class or race (John 12:32) but just because someone is Christian does not automatically mean that they will be saved for the path to destruction is broad but the way to salvation is narrow and constrained “…and few there be that find it” (Matt 7:14). Moreover, humanity can take no credit for discovering salvation,  “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44). It is the divine prerogative to both select and to forgive whomsoever he wants: “….and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy” (Ex. 33:19 ). Not only that but the apostle makes it clear that the creator (artist) does not have to answer to his creation, “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?  Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?” (Rom 9:20-21). So, God does not owe us an explanation and ultimately it is not our place to judge another man’s servant.

 

Textual Approaches

The Art of Biblical Narrative by Alter was a groundbreaking approach to understanding the Bible as literature which is a prerequisite to obtaining any theological meaning. The following video is the first of four videos (recommended) reviewing the book [6]

First episode, Robert Alter, The Art of Biblical Literature (14 min)

This video on Hermenutics and Intertextuality is a good introduction and I start it part way where it is talking about Palimpsests (Gerard Genette 1982):

What is intertextuality?

This video demonstrates that intertextuality is inimical to understanding any piece of writing, or movie or even music (lyrics).   Nothing happens in a vacuum.

Resources

A number of texts were discussed and also referred to in the chat.  Matthew 2 which records The Flight into Egypt was brought up as an example of the grey area between historical event and pesher/midrash.    The embarrassment around Jesus’ birth and the woman caught in adultery is indirect corroboration (at the very least) of the mystery surrounding his birth and his legitimacy in John 8.  The Book of Job was mentioned as an example of a parabolic way of examining philosophical questions surrounding suffering and disinterested service based on the real-life experiences of Hezekiah.  The miracle of the healing of Legion was placed in the intertextual context of exorcising the unclean spirit out of the nation of Israel by sending them away.  It was a parody of the scapegoat ritual with the unclean animal (pig) drowning in the “Abyss” from which the “beast” emerges in Revelation 11 to kill the two witnesses who had tormented them (like Jesus did).   This teaching miracle must be put in the wider context of demonology found in the testaments.  Moreover, the Apocalyptic twist given to the healing of Legion demonstrates that the Beast power is at its heart Jewish.

 

 

 

 

 

This is discussed in depth in my commentary PRITA on the Apocalypse.

Finally someone commented on the fact that Sarah was a half-sister to Abraham misunderstanding the cultural norms and the complex theology behind the sister-wife narratives.  Consanguinity was not unusual in the ancient near east one only has to look at the ancient Egyptian Kings and Queens etc. 

Notes

[1] I. Howard Marshall once famously compared the scholarly deconstruction of Christ and the gospels with the scene in John 20:15 where Mary is weeping and when the “Gardner” asks why she is crying she responds that they have taken away the Lord’s body and she does not know what they have done with it.

CELL TOWERS ON THE OCEAN FLOOR
 
One blue sky above us,
One ocean lapping all our shores,
One earth so green and round,
Who could ask for more?

– Pete Seeger
 
In 2018, on land and in space, preparations to deploy millions of antennas were very publicly being made and advertised, for “5G,” “Smart Cities,” and the “Internet of Things.” At the same time, and without any publicity, governments, research laboratories, and commercial and military interests were collaborating on plans to create “Smart Oceans” and the “Internet of Underwater Things” (IoUT). They did not consult the fishes, whales, dolphins, octopuses, and other inhabitants of those depths.

In the United States, the National Science Foundation funded what it called the SEANet Project. The goal was to enable broadband wireless communication from any point on or in the oceans to anywhere else on the planet or in space. The Internet of Underwater Things is being designed to enable all the same communication capabilities that are being provided on land, including “real-time video streaming from underwater.”

In the last three years, a flood of papers have been published by scientists and engineers in the U.S., China, Pakistan, Qatar, South Korea, Spain, Australia, Greece, Italy, France, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere. In 2020, the IEEE Internet of Things Journal published a Special Issue on Internet of Things for Smart Ocean. In 2019, the journal Sensors published a Special Issue on Smart Ocean: Emerging Research Advances, Prospects and Challenges, and the same journal is now publishing another Special Issue on Internet of Underwater Things.

Some of the activities that supposedly “need” this technology in the oceans are:
 
  • climate change monitoring
  • pollution control and tracking
  • disaster prevention including tsunami warning systems
  • ocean exploration
  • fishing and aquaculture
  • coral reef harvesting
  • tectonic plate monitoring
  • navigation
  • global oceanic trade
  • oil and gas exploration and production
  • military communication and surveillance
The infrastructure that is beginning to be deployed, throughout the oceans, includes:
 
  • sensors and antennas (“nodes”) on the ocean floor
  • nodes at different depths
  • surface nodes
  • relay antennas at different depths to transmit data vertically from the ocean floor to the ocean surface, and horizontally between nodes
  • Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)
  • Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs)
  • underwater robots
  • wireless surface buoys
  • smart boats and ships
  • smart submarines
  • smart shores
 
Communication being more difficult to accomplish underwater than through the air, and more subject to interference, several different types of communication media are being used in the oceans to send data at different speeds and over different distances. Acoustic waves, radio waves, lasers, LED light, and magnetic induction are all being used to flood the oceans with data. An underwater GPS system is being developed. Most of these media work only for short- to medium-range communication. Long-range communication relies on acoustic waves, and is similar to the technology used in ocean sonar.​
 
 
 
 
These technologies are already being marketed commercially and installed in the world’s oceans today. At the 2022 Oceanology International conference, which will be held in London from March 15 to 17, dozens of these companies will be exhibiting their products.

WaterLinked sells underwater sensor technology through distributors around the world for use in aquaculture, and in underwater navigation. “Our Wireless Sense™ technology enables reliable wireless communication and innovative subsea sensor solutions,” says their website.

EvoLogics sells underwater acoustic modems, both mid-range and long-range, that “provide full-duplex digital communication.”

SonarDyne International sells underwater acoustic modems to the oil and gas industry and to governments and navies.

Voyis sells short- and long-range underwater laser scanners.

GeoSpectrum sells “integrated, end-to-end acoustic systems” for oil and gas exploration and for military purposes.

Dynautics sells autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

Seaber sells “off-the-shelf micro-AUVs.”

Hydromea markets “the first ever tether-less underwater drone.”

Mediterraneo Señales Maritimas sells “data buoys that integrate sensors through our datalogger so the data can be transmitted to a remote station and displayed on our software.”

3D at Depth, Inc. “provides advanced subsea LIDAR laser systems.”

Teledyne Marine sells Autonomous Underwater Gliders, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (“unmanned robot submarines”) and “laser systems for both shallow and deep-sea submerged diving.”

“Underwater robots swarm the ocean,” says a page on the website of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. The Institute has developed an acoustic-based navigation system that is enabling large numbers of underwater robots to work together. “Instead of using just a single, larger and more expensive underwater robot to cover an area of the ocean, we want to have hundreds or even thousands of smaller, lower-cost robots that can all work in sync,” says their webpage.
 
Ocean protection organizations have long been campaigning against noise pollution in the oceans, but they are only beginning to be aware of this new type of assault, which has the potential to dwarf all previous noise assaults in its scope and magnitude. For example, one of the campaigns of the environmental organization, Sea Shepherd, is “Silencing the Deafening Roar of Ocean Noise Pollution.” They write:
 
“In 1953, Jacques Cousteau published a classic memoir on his early days of underwater exploration. He titled this book The Silent World. Today, human activities make a mockery of that title. Over the past several decades, marine noise pollution has grown at an exponential rate. Noise from vessel traffic is doubling every decade. Pile-driving, dredging, sonar, and seismic exploration for oil and gas add to the cacophony. For marine wildlife, and especially for acoustically-sensitive cetaceans, this anthropogenic racket poses a grave and growing threat. Ocean noise pollution causes severe stress, behavioral changes, masking (i.e., difficulty perceiving important natural sounds), strandings, and noise-induced loss of hearing sensitivity.”

To this mix is now being added the Internet of Underwater Things, which is beginning to flood the oceans with sound in order to connect them to the Internet. And this sound will be pulse-modulated with the same harmful frequencies as radio waves in order to carry the same data. And to communicate over large distances, some of the underwater acoustic modems that are being marketed are capable of producing sound as loud as 202 decibels. That is equivalent to 139 decibels in air. It is as loud as a jet engine at a distance of 100 feet, and is above the threshold for pain in humans. These modems blast modulated sound at frequencies ranging from 7 kHz to 170 kHz, encompassing almost the entire hearing range of dolphins, which use sound for hunting and navigating.
 
The effects of sonar on whales and dolphins have been widely publicized. But the effects of noise pollution on fish and other denizens of the deep are just as devastating, as Lindy Weilgart details in her 36-page report for OceanCare. She reviews 115 research studies on the effects of noise on 66 species of fish and 36 species of invertebrates.

“Most fish and invertebrates use sound for vital life functions,” she writes. “Noise impacts on development include body malformations, higher egg or immature mortality, developmental delays, delays in metamorphosing and settling, and slower growth rates… Anatomical impacts from noise involve massive internal injuries, cellular damage to statocysts and neurons, causing disorientation and even death, and hearing loss… Behaviorally, animals showed alarm responses, increased aggression, hiding, and flight reactions; and decreased anti-predator defense, nest digging, nest care, courtship calls, spawning, egg clutches, and feeding… Some commercial catches dropped by up to 80% due to noise, with larger fish leaving the area.”

If the new assault continues, it will provide the last nails in the coffins of our oceans, and — since the oceans are the source of all life — of our planet. Already in 1970, just 17 years after he published The Silent World, Jacques Cousteau, returning from 3½ years of exploration in which he traveled 155,000 miles, told the world: “The oceans are dying. The pollution is general.”

“People don’t realize that all pollution goes to the seas,” said Cousteau. “The earth is less polluted. It is washed by the rain which carries everything into the oceans where life has diminished by 40 per cent in 20 years. Fish disappear. Flora too.” And what was not being poisoned was being mined for food as though ocean life was an inexhaustible resource. “The oceans are being scraped,” he said. “Eggs and larvae are disappearing. In the past, the sea renewed itself. It was a complete cycle. But this balance was upset with the appearance of industrial civilization. Shrimps are being chased from their holes by electric shocks. Lobsters are being sought in impossible places. Coral itself is disappearing. Even in the Indian Ocean, which is little traveled.”

Life in the oceans today is hanging by a thread. If the rate of population declines continues, there will be no almost fish left in the oceans by 2048.[1] The oceans are absorbing 24 million tons of carbon dioxide every day, are 26% more acidic than before we began burning fossil fuels,[2] and have absorbed 93% of the heat generated by greenhouse gases since the 1970s.[3] The damage already done to coral reefs by acidification, rising temperatures, and bottom trawling would take 100,000 years for nature to repair.[4] Diatoms — a type of algae at the base of the ocean’s food chain that is also the source of a third of the world’s oxygen production — have been declining by more than 1% per year for two decades.[5] Populations of krill — the small shrimplike crustaceans that make up a large portion of the diet of many species of whales, penguins and seals — have declined by 80% since the 1970s.[6] And the deepest layers of the oceans are severely depleted of oxygen — so much so that deep-diving fish no longer dive deep but remain near the surface in order to breathe. And populations of fishes that live in the deep sea are drastically declining. Warming oceans can no longer hold as much oxygen, and it is the deepest waters that are depleted of oxygen first.[7][8][9][10] Large numbers of bottom-dwelling crabs have suffocated off the coast of Oregon.[11] More than a thousand manatees died of starvation in 2021 off the coast of Florida because the seagrass they eat has been killed by pollution.[12] And there is so much plastic throughout the oceans[13] that sardines sold in an Australian fish market contain 3 milligrams of plastic in every gram of their tissue.[14]

Although many are the assaults on the oceans, and on the Earth, the single most urgent assault, which is destroying the planet the quickest, is wireless technology. It is the most destructive itself, and it speeds up and coordinates all the other assaults. And driving all of wireless technology, including wireless technology on land, in space, and in the oceans, is the cell phone. All of wireless technology, from 2G to 5G to the Internet of Things to the Internet of Underwater Things, requires everyone to be holding a cell phone in their hands. It is the director, it is the target, and without it, the present rate of destruction could not continue.

As Hillel said two thousand years ago, “If not now, when? If not me, who?”

Vaccines and Menstrual Cycle

Vaccines and Menstrual Cycle

This video goes over recent published data analyzing how vaccination affects menstruation cycle and why such impact might be observed. One item not mentioned in the video is that women with very regular cycle were studied (in order to effectively capture the difference), thus might not be representative of the typical population.
