Aleph

There was a man who lived back at the dawn of creation. He was the

biggest man who ever lived. A giant–the same giant who lives in

the mansion in the clouds in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk.’ And he was

the one made of human flesh of the four who were there right from the start.

The flesh of every human being  who ever lived was all there, in Aleph.

Everything that anybody else ever did already happened, inside Aleph,

before they were even born.  inside of him.

Aleph stood on the ledge of a cave high in the mountains one early morning.

And he took a really, really big breath of air. The breath of air he took was so

big that the majority of the earth’s atmosphere was created upon exhalation.

It was the single greatest breath of air that was ever breathed. No other breath

could ever match it for its freshness, purity, and energy that it gave. AlEph lived

for two straight days on that breath of air alone. “I think I’ll take another breath,

soon,” he said after two days, and he did, but no breath would ever match that

breath of air Aleph took on the edge of that cave overlooking the mountains that morning. All creation can be divided on that breath’s axis, with what came before

and what came after divided by it. “That was a big breath,” he said, soon after

breathing it.

When Aleph learned a new word, or even just a prefix or a suffix, and used it in

his language to communicate to someone else a meaning for the very first time,

all the creatures that were around could feel the whole earth shift upon its axis.

New meaning was injected into the world everytime Aleph used a new word.

After he dieD, people soon wrote him off as stupid, a barbarian, a cave man.

They invented new words all the time, and some prefix that an ancient nomad

used wasn’t any more impressive than that. What they don’t realise is that every

word they’ll ever use will only be a fragmentary vibration of part of a word that

Aleph used first.

One thing about Aleph is, he was a woman, too. He was more of a man, but the

body of every woman who would ever live was in him as well. When you saw

him in his gigantic house wearing his dress and just relaxing, you could plainly

see that he was every bit a woman; but the difference between a man and a

woman Aleph did not know, because he was them both so could not separate the difference between them.

There was a time when Aleph was on the forefront of fashion. He explained it

to his friend one day. “When I’m at home, that’s when I wear my dress,” he said.

“But when I go out, that’s when I wear my legs.” And so, the general fashion

sense with regards to gender (roles) that would stand firm throughout the ages

was born in him. Every decision that Aleph set precedeNts that lasted ages. That’s

why he never really did all that much.

There was a time when Aleph received a wonderful gift, from above: body. Flesh.

Tonnes and tonnes of flesh, all rolled up into doughy balls. The giver of the gift

expected that he would eat it. But instead of keep it for himself, he went to market

and shared it around with everyone until there was nothing left. He gave it away

on the spot for free, on the condition that those who took some would pay him back.

He made them count for it. “You owe me three,” or, “You owe me four.” But he didn’t write the numbers down.

“Foolish Aleph,” said those who took from him, “How is he going to remember all

these numbers without writing them down?” So they took from him without the intention of ever paying him back.

Pretty soon, Aleph started to get hungry. But no one had paid him back for the fresh

flesh he’d sold them on credit from him that day at the market. So he went around to some of those who he remembered he’d given some to, but they weren’t to be found. They all seemed to have disappeared.

But it was from this that Aleph began to getting dying. And it was later then that

he went to the cave and spent that awful, horrible night all alone with his pain

that there was nothing he could do, and all regret and sorrow that ever was felt by

any human ever again was all there in the sorrow in that god awful night that Aleph spent in the cave alone by himself.

“Silly Aleph,” said his friend, the same one who he’d explained about how fashion

works that day. “What were you thinking when you went around giving out all

your flesh without writing the numbers down?”

Aleph thought about it. He couldn’t quite put his finger on the word that explained

his motivation behind sharing his flesh around in the market that day. He thought

really, really hard. “Karma,” he said. “Good kArma.” And so, Karma was born.

He was on the brink of starvation one night as he lay in his cave, embroiled in a

process of mental self-jurisdiction. He felt absolutely certain that he had done the

right thing, on that day, by sharing his bread for the good of all. But now he was

starving. There was nothing he could do, now. He was going to die.

It was a horrible feeling, worse than any person thereafter was capable of feeling.

Every bit of suffering that any person ever had thereafter was compressed into

the experience of a single person on a single evening on that night in the cave, in

Aleph’s suffering. But before he died, he figured it out; a way to make it so that he

had been right, after all. He realised that all the people who were ever going to live

after him were there, inside his own body, somewhere. So he went deep inside

himself until he found the one. The one ‘one,’ the last one, who was at the very end,

the one who would be made from the one loaf of bread that he’d eaten for himself, rather than hand away. “You’ll collect my karma for me,” he told himself.

And when he was sure that he’d spoken to him and the message was passed, he

bucked his head with brutish strength into the cave wall and cracked his giant head

and fell onto the floor where he bled and bled for several days before dying. His body slowly but surely melded into the landscape, and he became the Himalayas.

Nothing was ever the same, after Aleph was gone.

 

Glide

Gliding over the milky way,
The waters of its formation,
The Serpent slithers hither and tither,
Unperturbed, impenetrable,
A being of pure fire,
Where humans are earth.

 

The Serpent swims towards the lotus,
Gazing at the other half of its soul,
Beneath the water,
Dancing in synchronicity with it.

 

Like a tree that has sprouted wings and been set aflame,
Melting down the branches until all that’s left of its body is a trail of wax,

Left along the water behind it.

 

It meets its twin at the lotus,
Eat of the same petals,
But the flower is never diminished;

Another petal always springs up anew,

Between them.

 

But then the time came when one half of the Serpent didn’t come to the lotus;

It was severed, maimed, cut limb-from-limb,

By a jealous, angry Man.

Its limbs fell beneath the water, into the milky-way,

Floating down to the bottom of the sea-floor,

Where humans walk everyday.

 

I found a piece of the Serpent,

It’s missing rainbow claw,

And so I glide, glide, glide in its direction,

To give it back again.

Church of Life

The Church of Life will bring you happiness, allow you to live

your dreams, and is a road to the one God and eternal life.

There are many ways to get there; so what’s different about

the Church of Life? The answer is that God wants the Australian

nation to have a way to the promised land designed with them in

mind, so He has decided to use the Church of Life as a vessel to

show people this way. It involves atonement for the Australian

nation’s ‘original sin’—it’s breach of sovereignty over the land, and

the creation of a new

landscape that will enable the Australian nation to flourish.

People of all ethnicities, cultures, and systems of belief are welcome

in the Church of Life. And it’s incredibly easy to join—not to mention, free! Followers of the Church of Life will help spur

humanity’s evolution by enabling it to connect with its past,

demonstrating the way in which it’s possible to make amends for

the injustices done to indigenous peoples of all lands, times and places

throughout history against whom humanity has transgressed.

The Church of Life will pave a new path to God beginning on Australian

soil and leading straight to Him. The first step is to make

atonement for the breach of Aboriginal sovereignty. This will occur in part

as a result of the daily act of paying respect to Aboriginal elders,

already a common practice throughout Australia.

This will expedite the awakening of the past Aboriginal elders from the land,

thereby bringing justice to the Australian Aborigines via the restoration

of their rightful spiritual inheritance, which will come through their

ancestors. When atonement is made, God will cause an inland

sea to appear on the Australian continent, making it abundantly fertile. This miracle will be the sign that the path to God carved out by the Church of Life is complete,

and that Australia’s place at the table of the Lord of Hosts has been assured.

 

About me:

I am an Australian descendant of Jesus with mixed Indo-European and Semitic ancestry who had his spiritual inheritance cut-off when his family were massacred in a pogrom three generations ago.

In 2015, the Holy Spirit came upon me, and I was taken to Eden, where

the spirits of my lost ancestors were awakened and my stolen inheritance

was restored. This experience fueled the motivation for me to do all that

I’m able to expedite a similar restoration of their rightful spiritual

inheritance for Aboriginal Australians.

Religious Experience

Judaism

 

Ezekiel receives divine command, represented by the Hand of God,

Dura-Europos Synagogue, 3rd century CE.

“Holy spirit” is a term used in the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) and Jewish

writings to refer to the spirit ofYHWH ( It literally means “spirit of the

holiness” or “spirit of the holy place”. The “Holy Spirit” in Judaism generally

refers to the divine aspect of prophecy and wisdom. It also refers to the

divine force, quality, and influence of the Most High God, over the universe

or over his creatures

 

Religious experience

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

religious experience is a subjective experience which is interpreted

within a religious framework.[1]

Many religious and mystical traditions see religious experiences (particularly

that knowledge which comes with them) as revelations caused by divine agency

rather than ordinary natural processes. They are considered real encounters

with God or gods, or real contact with higher-order realities of which humans are not ordinarily aware.[3]

Skeptics may hold that religious experience is an evolved feature of the human

brain amenable to normal scientific study.

Definitions

William James’ definition

Psychologist and Philosopher William James described four characteristics of

mystical experience in The Varieties of Religious Experience.

  • Transient— the experience is temporary; the individual soon returns to a “normal”
  • frame of mind. It is outside our normal perception of space and time.
  • Ineffable— the experience cannot be adequately put into words.
  • Noetic— the individual feels that he or she has learned something valuable from the
  •  experience. Gives us knowledge that is normally hidden from human
  • understanding.
  • Passive— the experience happens to the individual, largely without conscious control.
  • Although there are activities, such as meditation (see below), that can make
  • religious experience more likely, it is not something that can be turned on and
  • off at will.

Norman Habel’s definition[edit]

Norman Habel defines religious experiences as the structured way in which a

believer enters into a relationship with, or gains an awareness of, the sacred within

the context of a particular religious tradition (Habel, O’Donoghue and Maddox: 1993).

Religious experiences are by their very nature preternatural; that is, out of the

ordinary or beyond the natural order of things.

Moore and Habel identify two classes of religious experiences:

  • Mediated— In the mediated experience, the believer experiences the sacred through
  • mediators such asrituals, special persons, religious groups, totemic objects or
  • the natural world (Habel et al.: 1993).
  • Immediate— The immediate experience comes to the believer without any intervening
  • agency or mediator. The deity or divine is experienced directly

Richard Swinburne’s definition[edit]

In his book Faith and Reason, the philosopher Richard Swinburne formulated five

categories into which all religious experiences fall:

  • Public— a believer ‘sees God’s hand at work’, whereas other explanations are
  • possible e.g. looking at a beautiful sunset
  • Public— an unusual event that breaches natural law e.g. walking on water
  • Private— describable using normal language e.g. Jacob’s vision of a ladder
  • Private— indescribable using normal language, usually a mystical experience e.g.
  •  “white did not cease to be white, nor black cease to be black, but black became white and white became black.”
  • Private— a non-specific, general feeling of God working in one’s life.

Swinburne also suggested two principles for the assessment of religious experiences:

  • Principle of Credulity— with the absence of any reason to disbelieve it, one should accept what
  • appears
  •  to be true e.g. if one sees someone walking on water, one should believe that it is
  •  occurring.
  • Principle of Testimony— with the absence of any reason to disbelieve them, one should accept that eyewitnesses or believers are telling the truth when they testify about religious experiences.

Related terms[edit]

Numinous — The German thinker Rudolf Otto (1869–1937) argues that there is one common factor to all religious experience, independent of the cultural background.

his factor as the numinous. The “numinous” experience has two aspects:mysterium 

tremendum, which is the tendency to invoke fear and trembling; and mysterium 

fascinans, the tendency to attract, fascinate and compel. The numinous experience

also has a personal quality to it, in that the person feels to be in communion with a

holy other.

Ecstasy — In ecstasy the believer is understood to have a soul or spirit which can

leave the body. In ecstasy the focus is on the soul leaving the body and to experience

transcendental realities.

Enthusiasm — In enthusiasm — or possession — God is understood to be outside,

other than or beyond the believer. A sacred power, being or will enters the body or

mind of an individual and possesses it.  The deity, spirit or power uses such a person

to communicate to theimmanent world.

Mystical experience — Mystical experiences are in many ways the opposite of

numinous experiences. In the mystical experience, all ‘otherness’ disappear and the

believer becomes one with the transcendent. The believer discovers that he or she

is not distinct from the cosmos, the deity or the other reality, but one with it.

two distinctively different mystical experiences: natural and religious mystical

experiences (Charlesworth: 1988). Natural mystical experiences are, for example,

experiences of the ‘deeper self’ or experiences of oneness with nature.

atural mystical experiences are not considered to be religious experiences because

they are not linked to a particular tradition, but natural mystical experiences are

spiritual experiences that can have a profound effect on the individual.

Spiritual awakening — A spiritual awakening usually involves a realization or

opening to a sacred dimension of reality and may or may not be a religious

experience. Often a spiritual awakening has lasting effects upon one’s life. The

term “spiritual awakening” may be used to refer to any of a wide range of

experiences including being born again,near-death experiences, and mystical experiences such asliberation and

enlightenment.

Perennial philosophy

According to the Perennial Philosophy the mystical experiences in all religions

are essentially the same. It supposes that many, if not all of the world’s great

religions, have arisen around the teachings of mystics, includingBuddhaJesus,

Lao Tze, and Krishna. It also sees most religious traditions describing fundamental

mystical experience, at least esoterically.

New Thought

New Thought promotes the ideas that Infinite Intelligence, or God, is everywhere,

spirit is the totality of real things, true human selfhood is divine, divine thought

is a force for good, sickness originates in the mind, and “right thinking” has a

healing effect.

Integrating religious experience

Several psychologists have proposed models in which religious experiences

are part of a process of transformation of the self.

Carl Jung‘s work on himself and his patients convinced him that life has a spiritual

purpose beyond material goals. Our main task, he believed, is to discover and

fulfill our deep innate potential, much as the acorn contains the potential to

become the oak, or the caterpillar to become the butterfly. Based on his study of

ChristianityHinduismBuddhism,GnosticismTaoism, and other traditions, Jung

perceived that this journey of transformation is at the mystical heart of all religions.

It is a journey to meet the self and at the same time to meet the Divine. Jung

thought spiritual experience was essential to our well-being.

The notion of the numinous was an important concept in the writings of Carl

Jung. Jung regarded numinous experiences as fundamental to an understanding

of the individuation process because of their association with experiences of

synchronicity in which the presence of archetypes is felt.

Transpersonal psychology is a school of psychology that studies the

transpersonal, self-transcendent or spiritualaspects of the human experience. The Journal of 

Transpersonal Psychology describes transpersonal psychology as “the study

of humanity’s highest potential, and with the recognition, understanding, and

realization of unitive, spiritual, and transcendent states of consciousness”

Mystical experience

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Since the 19th century,mystical experiencehas evolved as a distinctive concept.

It is closely related to “mysticism” but lays sole emphasis on the experiential

aspect, be it spontaneous or induced by human behavior,

Neurological research reveals which areas in the brain are involved in so-called “mystical experience” both spontaneous and behavioral induced. Especially

the brain’s temporal lobe seems to have a significant role here.

In mystical and contemplative traditions, mystical experiences are not a goal in

themselves, but part of a larger path of self-transformation.

Tree of life (biblical)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The tree of life is a term used in the Hebrew Bible that is a component of

the world tree motif.

The tree of life is first described in Genesis 2:9 as being planted with the

tree of the knowledge of good and evil “in the midst of the Garden of Eden

by YahwehElohim  In Genesis 3:24 cherubim guard the way to the tree of life

at the east end of the Garden. The tree of life has become the subject of some

debate as to whether or not the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the same tree.

Outside of Genesis, the term “tree of life” appears 11 times in the Bible in

Proverbs2 Esdras4 Maccabees, and Revelation.

Tree of life

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The concept of atree of life is a widespreadmytheme orarchetype in the

world’s mythologies, related to the concept of sacred tree more generally,[1] and hence in religious and philosophical tradition.

The expression Tree of Life was used as a metaphor for the phylogenetic tree

of common descent in the evolutionarysense in a famous passage by Charles

Darwin (1872).[2]

The tree of knowledge, connecting toheaven and theunderworld, and the tree

of life, connecting all forms of creation, are both forms of the world tree or cosmic

tree, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica and are portrayed in various

religions and philosophies as the same tree.

Jewish sources

The tree of life is mentioned in the Book of Genesis; it is distinct from the

tree of the knowledge of good and evil. After Adam and Eve disobeyed God

by eating fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they were

driven out of the Garden of Eden. Remaining in the garden, however, was the

tree of life. To prevent their access to this tree in the future, Cherubim with a

flaming sword were placed at the east of the garden.

In the Book of Proverbs, the tree of life is associated withwisdom: In 15:4 the

tree of life is associated with calmness:

The Book of Enoch, generally considered non-canonical, states that in the time of the great judgment God will give all those

whose names are in the Book of Life fruit to eat from the Tree of Life.

Tree of the knowledge of good and evil

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is one of two specific trees in

the story of the Garden of Edenin Genesis 2-3, along with the tree of life.

Religious views

Judaism

In Jewish tradition, the Tree of Knowledge and the eating of its fruit

represents the beginning of the mixture of good and evil together. Before

that time, the two were separate, and evil had only a nebulous existence

in potential. While free choice did exist before eating the fruit, evil

existed as an entity separate from the human psyche, and it was not in

human nature to desire it.

is a set of beliefs and practices that aims at improving the genetic quality

of the human population.[4][5] It is a social philosophy advocating the improvement of human 

genetictraits through the promotion of higher rates of sexual reproduction

for people with desired traits (positive eugenics), or reduced rates of sexual

reproduction andsterilization of people with less-desired or undesired traits (negative eugenics), or both.[6] Alternatively, gene selection rather than “people selection” has recently

been made possible through advances in gene editing (e.g. CRISPR).[7]The exact definition of eugenics has been a matter of debate since the

term was coined.

People deemed unfit to reproduce often included people with mental or

physical disabilities, people who scored in the low ranges of differentIQ

tests, criminals and deviants, and members of disfavored minority groups.

with the institution ofhuman rights, many countries gradually abandoned

eugenics policies, although some Western countries, among them the

United States, continued to carry out forced sterilizations.

A major criticism of eugenics policies is that, regardless of whether “negative”

or “positive” policies are used, they are vulnerable to abuse because the criteria

of selection are determined by whichever group is in political power.

Furthermore, negative eugenics in particular is considered by many to be

a violation of basic human rights, which include the right to reproduction.

Another criticism is that eugenic policies eventually lead to a loss of

genetic diversity, resulting in inbreeding depression instead due to a low

genetic variation.

a “new era of eugenics”, and that, unlike the Nazi eugenics, modern eugenics

is consumer driven and market based, “where children are increasingly

regarded as made-to-order consumer products

Eugenic policies have been conceptually divided into two categories.

Positive eugenics is aimed at encouraging reproduction among the

genetically advantaged; for example, the reproduction of the intelligent,

the healthy, and the successful.[62] Possible approaches include financial and political stimuli, targeted

demographic analyses, in vitro fertilization, egg transplants, and cloning.[63] The movieGattaca provides a fictional example of positive eugenics

done voluntarily. Negative eugenics aimed to eliminate, through sterilization

or segregation, those deemed physically, mentally, or morally “undesirable”.[62] This includes abortions, sterilization, and other methods of family planning

he ways in which the methods of eugenics can be applied.[66]

Biological determinism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Biological determinism is the belief that human behavior is

controlled solely by an individual’s genes or some component

of physiology.

Gender assignment

biology often presents “clear-cut differences”[2] between sexes with regards to chromosomes, genetics, and inheritance.

However, while obvious physical differences between males and females exist

and develop during puberty, hormonal differences are “not absolute”.[3] There is a broad range of reproductive anatomy that doesn’t necessarily

fit the “gender definition” of male or female.

Homosexuality[edit]

Main articles: Biology and sexual orientation andNeuroscience and sexual orientation

Though scientists are unsure as to whether homosexualitycan be attributed

to biological or social factors, LGBT rights activists have used the theories

of biological determinism to support their cause.

Social construction

very interesting evidence that points to the fact that biological determinism

in science is actually greatly affected by certain norms and tendencies within

society. According to them, biological determinism is more constructed by

society than by anything else.

Dual inheritance theory

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dual inheritance theory (DIT)

was developed in the 1960s through early 1980s to explain how  human behavior

is a product of two different and interactingevolutionary processes: genetic evolution

and cultural evolution. In DIT, culture is defined as information and/or behavior

acquired through social learning.

Directed evolution (transhumanism)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term directed evolution is used within thetranshumanist community to

refer to the idea of applying the principles of directed evolution and

experimental evolution to the control of human evolution

“Humanity until this point has been a story of evolution for the survival genes –

survival and reproduction … we are entering a new phase of human evolution –

evolution under reason – where human beings are masters of their destiny. Power

has been transferred from nature to science.”

“self-directed evolution” can be coupled with many different political, philosophical,

and religious views.[4]

Transhumanism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about the futurist ideology and movement. 

Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international and

intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing

and creating widely available sophisticated technologies to greatlyenhance human

intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.[1][2] Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of

emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations,

as well as theethics[3] of using such technologies.[4] The most common transhumanist thesis is that human beings may eventually

be able to transform themselves into different beings with abilities so greatly

expanded from the natural condition as to merit the label of posthuman beings.

Influenced by seminal works of science fiction, the transhumanist vision of a

transformed future humanity has attracted many supporters and detractors from

a wide range of perspectives including philosophy and religion.[5]Transhumanism has been characterized as among the world’s most dangerous ideas,

it is the “movement that epitomizes the most daring, courageous, imaginative and

idealistic aspirations of humanity.”[9]

Spirituality[edit]

Although many transhumanists are atheistsagnostics, and/or secular humanists,

some have religious or spiritualviews.[32] Despite the prevailing secular attitude, some transhumanists pursue hopes

traditionally espoused by religions, such as immortality,[70] while several controversialnew religious movements from the late 20th

century have explicitly embraced transhumanist goals of transforming the human

condition by applying technology to the alteration of the mind and body, such as Raëlism.

Many transhumanists believe in the compatibility between the human mind and

computer hardware, with the theoretical implication that human consciousness

may someday be transferred to alternative media

Genetic determinism

Genetic determinism is the mechanism by which genes, along with environmental

conditions, determinemorphological and behavioral phenotypes.

Morphology (biology)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about the term in biology. For other uses, see Morphology.

Morphology of a male Caprella mutica

Morphology is a branch of biologydealing with the study of the form and

structure of organisms and their specific structural features.[1]

This includes aspects of the outward appearance (shape, structure, colour,

pattern, size), i.e. external morphology (or eidonomy), as well as the form

and structure of the internal parts like bones and organs, i.e.internal morphology

(or anatomy). This is in contrast tophysiology, which deals primarily with function.

Phenotype

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The shells of individuals within the bivalvemollusk species Donax variabilis

show diverse coloration and patterning in their phenotypes

Here the relation between genotype and phenotype is illustrated, using

aPunnett square, for the character of petal colour in pea. The letters B and b

represent genes for colour and the pictures show the resultant flowers.

phenotype(from Greekphainein, meaning “to show”, andtypos, meaning “type”)

is the composite of anorganism‘s observable characteristics or traits, such as

itsmorphology,development, biochemical or physiological properties,phenology,

behavior, and products of behavior (such as a bird’s nest). A phenotype results

from the expressionof an organism’s genes as well as the influence of

environmental factors and the interactions between the two.

Eugenics manifesto

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eugenics manifesto was the name given to an article supporting eugenics.

This manifesto was published in the journal Nature in 1939

Life unworthy of life

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The phrase“life unworthy of life” (inGerman:“Lebensunwertes Leben”) was

Nazi designation for the segments of the populace which, according to the

Nazi regime of the time, had no right to live. Those individuals were targeted

to be euthanized. The term included people with serious medical problems and

those considered grossly inferior according to the racial policy of Nazi Germany.

This concept formed an important component of the ideology of Nazism and

eventually helped lead to the Holocaust.[1]

Liberal eugenics

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Liberal eugenics, also known as new eugenics andconsumer eugenics, is

neologism for a claimed ideologywhich advocates the use of reproductive

and genetictechnologies where the choice of enhancing human characteristics 

and capacities is left to the individual preferences of parents acting as consumers,

rather than thepublic health policies of the state.

 

 

 

 

Genetic Memory

Genetic memory (psychology)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In psychologygenetic memory is a memory present at birth

that exists in the absence of sensory experience, and is

incorporated into the genome over long spans of time.[1] It is based on the idea that common experiences of a

species become incorporated into its genetic code, not by a

Lamarckian process that encodes specific memories but by

a much vaguer tendency to encode a readiness to respond

in certain ways to certain stimuli.

Genetic memory is invoked to explain the racial memory

postulated by Carl Jung. In Jungian psychology, racial

memories are posited memories, feelings, and ideas

inherited from our ancestors as part of a “collective unconscious“.[2]

Genetic memory and trauma, phobias,

 and neuropsychiatric disorders

Neuroscientific research on mice suggests that some experiences

can influence subsequent generations. In a study,[3][4] mice trained to fear a specific smell passed on their trained

aversion to their descendants, which were then extremely sensitive

and fearful of the same smell, even though they had never

encountered it, nor been trained to fear it.

Scientists speculate that similar genetic mechanisms could be

linked with phobias, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorders, as well as other neuropsychiatric

disorders, in humans.

 

Psychological nativism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the field of psychologynativism is the view that certain

skills or abilities are “native” or hard-wired into the brain at birth.

Some nativists believe that specific beliefs or preferences

are “hard wired”.

Engram (neuropsychology)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Engrams are theorized to be means by which memories are

stored[1] as biophysical or biochemical[2] changes in the brain

(and other neural tissue) in response to external stimuli.

The existence of engrams is posited by some scientific theories

to explain the persistence of memory and how memories are

stored in the brain. The existence of neurologically defined

engrams is not significantly disputed, though their exact

mechanism and location has been a focus of persistent research for many decades.

 

Samskara (Indian philosophy)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Samskaras or sanskaras (Sanskrit: संस्कार) has several context driven

meanings in Indian philosophy and Indian religions. One of these is

“mental impression, recollection, psychological imprint” and this

meaning is the basis for its use in Hindu philosophies, particularly

in the development of its karma theory.[1][2]

According to various schools of Indian philosophy, every action,

intent or preparation by an individual leaves a samskara

(impression, impact, imprint) in the deeper structure of his or

her mind.[2] These impressions then await volitional fruition in that

individual’s future, in the form of hidden expectations, circumstances

or unconscious sense of self-worth. These Samskaras manifest as tendency, karmic impulse,

subliminal impression, habitual potency or innate dispositions.[2][3] The theory of Samskara has also been used, in ancient Indian

texts, to develop explanations for how and why human beings

remember anything, and the impact these memories have on

his sense of suffering, happiness and contentness.[2][4]

 

Genetic Memory: How We Know

 Things We Never Learned

One of the most striking and consistent things in the many savants

I have seen is that that they clearly know things they never learned.

Genetic memory, simply put, is complex abilities and actual sophisticated

knowledge inherited along with other more typical and commonly

accepted physical and behavioral characteristics.

I call that genetic memory, and I propose that it exists in all of us.

The challenge is how to tap that dormant capacity non-intrusively and without a brain injury or similar incident.

 

 

Science Is Proving Some Memories Are 

Passed Down From Our Ancestors

memories of fear are one of many things our forebearers pass

down to us through our DNA.

the experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations,

Genetic memory can be unlocked with odours, environments/landscapes particular animals, pretty much anything.

Beyond The Physical Realm

The idea of memories being written into DNA could provoke speculation

about phenomenon like visions of past lives,

He calls it the science of reincarnation. Whether he is on the right track,

or we discover that memories are passed down by DNA all along, or

there is some other mechanism we don’t know about yet, is still to be determined.

 

Remembering Things From Before You Were Born

Can memories be innate?

Is it possible to inherit our ancestors’ memories? It depends on what we

mean by “memory.”

There are many different types of memory.

Episodic memory is memory of specific events,

Semantic memory is memory of information that is presented as a fact.

procedural memory is memory of how to do things,

It is uncontroversial that procedural memory can be inherited. The central,

and much more controversial, question is whether episodic and semantic

memory can be inherited.

Carl Gustav Jung, is well known for his theory of the collective unconscious.

The collective unconscious, unlike the personal unconscious, is a type of

genetic memory that can be shared by individuals with a common ancestor

or history. According to Jung, the collective unconscious consists of implicit

beliefs and thoughts had by our ancestors.

Jung hit upon his theory of the collective unconscious during psychoanalysis

of his patients’dreams. He believed that the symbolism he found was

prominent in his patients’ dreams often bore marks of a specific ancestral history.

 

Memories Can Be Inherited, and Scientists May 

Have Just Figured out How

Our life experiences may be passed on to our children and our children’s children

– and now scientists report that they have discovered that this inheritance

can be turned on or off.

Epigenetics is the study of inherited changes in gene expression…changes that are inherited, but they are not inherent to our DNA.

For instance, life experiences, which aren’t directly coded in human DNA,

can actually be passed on to children. Studies have shown that survivors

of traumatic events may have effects in subsequent generations.

“We previously showed that worms inherited small RNAs following the

starvation and viral infections of their parents. These small RNAs helped

prepare their offspring for similar hardships,”

From there, scientists were able to determine that specific genes, 

which they dubbed Modified Transgenerational Epigenetic Kinetics 

(MOTEK) are also involved in turning epigenetic transmission on 

and off. Switching on/off are based on the feedback interaction 

between RNAs (which are inherited) and the MOTEK genes

 

Deep DNA memory theories: Can we remember our ancestors’ lives?

In addition to determining our physical characteristics, our vulnerabilities

to certain diseases, and maybe even our personality, is it possible that

the DNA helix holds some of the important memories of our ancestors?

Theories that suggest that we can tap into the deep nature of DNA to

uncover ancient memories are not new. In the 1960s, some psychological

researchers claimed that there may be keys that unlock our DNA,

revealing experiences of generations of our relatives who lived long

before our present time.

BY UNLOCKING GENETIC MEMORIES, All the dead will rise again

*** Question: how to determine the difference between a genetic memory

and a random imagination??? All I can say is I know the tree of life

experience was genetic memory, and I’m certain my imagining my

ancestors J, H etc was just a bit of inspired imagination…

 

These ideas are similar in a way to the concepts of past lives and

reincarnation. However, this DNA-related line of thinking focuses on the previous lives within us that

are based on genetic memories, encoded on the DNA helix within us.

For humans, with our relatively complex brain, feelings and memories,

what other kinds of experiences might be saved in our DNA over the

many thousands of years when our ancestors were born, lived and

died? And, can they be accessed by us here and now?

OUR ANCESTORS WITHIN US

Because learning about situations that are necessary for survival of a

species are probably saved as a kind of unconscious genetic memory,

those fundamental human experiences could be deep down in our

DNA somewhere.

Maybe it is possible that deep, deep within your DNA memory banks,

your great-great-great-great-grandmother or great-great-great-great-grandfather had a very bad experience with a bear two hundred years

ago. Maybe they saw someone be killed by a bear. Maybe they had to

climb a tree to save themselves from being eaten by a bear.

Would a life-changing experience like this, resulting in knowledge

very useful for

survival, possibly be encoded in the DNA and passed on to future

generations and you?

If there were a way to go deep down into your mind and consciousness,

and into your genetic history, maybe through some kind of altered state

like a dream or through some kind of trigger, could you recall and

experience that event?

Could you relive and re-experience in some way great-great-great-great grandma’s or grandpa’s harrowing and hair-raising close encounter with a hungry bear two hundred years ago?

What about some similar “peak experience” or life-changing event of an ancient relative five hundred years ago? What

about five thousand years ago? After all, we know that at least some

part of that history is inside all of us, right in the DNA in every cell

of our body, right now.

To conduct our own personal research and to find out for ourselves,

maybe all we need to do is listen to our inner DNA.

Listen to the voices, feelings, sights and experiences of our ancestors.

Their lives, joys and fears are within us. In that way, they are with us always.

 

 

Genetic memory is a process in which a 

memory is passed down through the 

generations without the individual having 

to experience first-hand the topic of the memory.”

Genetic memory, simply put, is complex abilities and actual sophisticated

knowledge inherited along with other more typical and commonly

accepted physical and behavioral characteristics.

Some of the best examples of our genetic memory are ‘savants’.

Savant syndrome is a condition in which a person demonstrates

capacities or abilities far in excess of what would be considered normal.

They are clearly in possession of knowledge that they have never learned.

psychological and genetic memory were based upon a common mechanism,

and that the former only differed from the latter in that it interacted with

consciousness. Brain scientists say that the size of certain regions of the

brain are under tight genetic control, and that the larger these regions are,

the higher the intelligence. The study of intelligence genetics examines

how much, and by what manner, mental abilities are affected by genes.

Since many genetic and environmental factors influence intelligence, its

mysteries are still being unraveled daily.

 

Behaviour can be affected by events in previous generations which 

have been passed on through a form of genetic memory, animal 

studies suggest.

Experiments showed that a traumatic event could affect the DNA in sperm

and alter the brains and behaviour of subsequent generations.

the findings were “highly relevant to phobias, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorders” and provided “compelling evidence” that a

form of memory could be passed between generations.

He commented: “It is high time public health researchers took human

transgenerational responses seriously.

“I suspect we will not understand the rise in neuropsychiatric disorders

or obesity, diabetes and metabolic disruptions generally without

taking a multigenerational approach.”

Aryan Myth and Metahistory

The purpose of this blog is to discuss and explore the mythical and metahistorical

origins and development of the Aryan[Indo-European,Indo-Germanic] race and their metaphysical beliefs. This is a companion blog to

Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History and Die Armanenschaft der Ario-Germanen blogs.

The father of Analytical Psychology Carl Gustav Jung posited the theory of the 

Collective Unconscious. This is a level of the Unconscious beyond the 

Personal Unconscious or Subconscious which is shared by a society with a

shared ancestry. It is a reservoir of the experiences, beliefs and thoughts of

our ancestors over many millenia.
Jung discovered its existence from the analysis of his patients` dreams.

Frequently his patients were able to recall information from their dreams

which they had no conscious recollection of or access to and he found that

much of the symbolism contained within his patients` dreams had a

consistent and shared quality, specific to that race or folk.

Jung explores not only dreams but mythology with an emphasis on Aryan

mythology. Whether consciously or not Jung was beginning to create a new

branch of psychology, a distinctly Aryan one which had almost messianic

and Aryan undertones.
Jung goes beyond Freud`s narrow sexual interpretation of the Libido or life

impulse and transforms it into an Aryan hero, a sun hero who is seeking to

escape his narrow confines as it experiences a series of adventures.

Jesus’ Memes

 

Jesus’ memes are constantly being replenished from a never ending source

of life that is constantly flowing through his body and out to the rest of humanity

in the

direction of whoever needs them most. In fact, this flow of Jesus’

memes, along with the memes of certain others, is the very thing driving not just

human progress from a cultural standpoint, but biological evolution, too. Your genes in no way define the person you

are; your memes do.

Christianity is the vessel in which Jesus’s memes are kept evolving over time.

That was another thing Jesus’s memes taught me. And then I realised how it’s

not just Jesus’s memes that have reached this immutable source of energy

that flows beneath the plane at the edge of the third dimension, feeding it:

other people have found a way for their memes to continuously replenish

humanity’s need for healing, too. That’s the thing that lets their memes

become so powerful: the fact that they’re motivated by the will to help people.

Genes are the passive enactors of the memes we carry. We may have got out

genes from our parents, but our memes, unless you happen to be the child of

an all-time great, came from elsewhere.

Two ordinary God-fearing Christians of radically different ethnicities who share in the same

beliefs and sets of behaviours have more in common than two biological

brothers who carry radically different memes and therefore believe in

radically different things and behave in radically different ways.

Memes override genes. Just because I’m a descendant of Jesus, doesn’t make

me a good person. Genes in no way determine the quality of your moral

fiber; it’s memes that do that.

We can see the interaction and therefore the separation between genes and

memes in action when a person converts to Judaism. That’s what conversion

does to a person, it grinds out the normal expression of their genes that

they’re used to, and epigenetically pastes over them with Jewish memes. As

does Christianity, as does Buddhism, as does the scientific method.

Newton was an out-and-out prophet, and he left behind a metaphysics and a set of behaviors

which all scientists religiously adhere to. That’s what makes a scientist a

scientist; they behave according to the prescribed behavioral rituals and

methods, just as what makes a Christian a Christian is following the

behavioral patterns prescribed by Jesus, etcetera. You may have your

daddy’s genes, but they’re expressing themselves in a way that carries out

Sir Isaac Newton’s dirty work.

Who’s memes will win in the end? Whose memes will humanity’s genes end

up expressing? You may be carrying Newton’s memes, but whose memes

was Newton carrying???

So, at the end, when everybody is carrying Jesus’ memes, and Buddha’s,

and Krishna’s…basically, all the figures in history who left a religion in their

wake, and where the proponents of that religion came into and developed

an eschatology that said that the founder of that religion would come again in

the distant future, and that in fact time itself is measured by distance between

the founder’s first living and their coming again, then along will come the Teacher.

One man. One man who inherits the memes of all the other people whose memes

are still being carried, and transforms them all into something completely

brand new. And then all those memes left by Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed,

Newton, etc., finally reach the point where they’re no longer directly traceable

to those specific individuals anymore. From that point onwards, those memes

can only be traced back to the Teacher. Beyond him, they can’t be separated.

And this is then what instigates a genetic adaptation, in order that the body

can express these new memes that humans haven’t previously expressed.

Some new mode of behavior will be demanded by this memetic synthesis, and

the genes will have to adapt in order to make the necessary biological

adjustments to be able to express the change.

On this account, evolution doesn’t proceed blindly via ‘happy accidents’

where despite an error being made in the genes of an individual, they gain

an advantage over the rest of the population. Rather, the changes in the

gene sequence are a deliberate, forced reaction to the need for a new mode

of expression imposed on them by the memetic refinement taking place as a

result of cultural cross-pollination.

To deny the religion of one’s ancestors, and lets face it, everyone’s ancestors

have a mythology tied to a set of behaviours of some kind, is, then, to deny

your very own genes their full spectrum of expression.

Science is a religion. Newton is a prophet. You might say, “Okay, I agree that

it provides a code of conduct, and that Newton was somewhat of a

messianic figure, and that even though there’s Galileo Galilei, science would in

no way be the same as what it is today if you took Newton out, but there’s

no God–usually a pretty distinguishing characteristic of a religion–and it doesn’t tell you what to believe. You believe only what the

scientific method empirically demonstrates.”

Unfortunately, though, you’d be decieving yourself. Firstly, science doesn’t

say, ‘there is no God.’ Science is impartial whether or not one believes in

God. Science doesn’t prescribe that ‘though shalt not believe in God,’ in fact, yes,

hello, Newton did.

Secondly, the limitations on belief that science imposes, namely, ‘though shalt

not believe anything that is not empirically proven via the behaviors

and record-keeping methods prescribed by the scientific method,’ leave

as much scope for the scientist to think for themselves as the limitations

imposed on a person’s thinking imposed by, for example, Taoism, and I

would argue that the cosmological framework provided by a Taoist

metaphysics encompasses a far greater proportion of all being than science’s does.

Science is a johnny-come-lately, and what is actually happening is that it is ending up filling the gaps

between the day-to-day world and the heavenly doctrines of humanity’s memetic ancestors.

When science reaches its zenith, it will arrive where religion begins. And the

two will fuse together into a new element in a single individual, where

the difference between science and religion will no longer be apparent,

and evolution will take a giant leap forward.

New religions represent evolutionary baby-steps. When the ancient Jews started practicing Judaism, for example, it

gave them an evolutionary advantage over, say the ancient Mesopotamians.

So they survived, whilst Mesopotamian culture died out. Did the Mesopotamian themselves die out? No. Their genes are still around. But they no longer express

the same memes. They had to abandon their old memes and take on new ones in order to survive, so they did.

Along comes Jesus. Gives all his followers an memetic evolutionary advantage

over all the pagans that are around. Christianity thrives, paganism dies. So what do pagans do? They start incorporating Jesus’ memes with their own,

cherry picking here and there, and along come all these little capillary

Christian religions, carrying bits and pieces of Jesus’ memes, because it

makes them better adapted to nature, makes them survive better, longer

than they would have without them.

So you look around now, what with globalization and one world and a

single memetic playing field, the elite level, the world-class memes that have won all the battles leading up to the

modern world, and you see that the bell has rung on the final evolutionary

bout for the hearts and minds of people, and the first few punches are

being thrown, metaphorically speaking.

Now, the more adaptable your religion is, the more accepting it is of memes

other than its own, the more able it is to survive. Therefore atheism is the

weakest of all religions (it being a sub-branch church of the greater religion of ‘Science’), being incapable as it

currently appears to be of accomodating alternative memes.

There was an existentialist brand of atheism that existed around the turn of the

twentieth century that was capable of this, but I don’t see that particular brand

of atheism around much today. Atheism has drawn a line in the sand: “If

you’re not with us, you’re against us,” it has said.

Why are Jesus’ memes so powerful? How can it be that they have passed the

threshold where as long as humanity exists, it will carry his memes? Who

would have been thinking that Jesus’ memes would be any kind of raging

success when he was hanging from the cross?

Maybe there’s more than one Jesus. Maybe there are Jesuses, plural. Jesii.

Maybe Jesus’ memes and Jesus’ genes came from two different places. Maybe

Jesus’ memes were implanted over his genes from an external source. And

that source, that meme generating source, from which all Jesus’ memes grew, is the

one and the same character, figure, spirit, if you will, that generated all the great

memes of all the great messianic figures whose memes we still all carry…

Which is why Newton believed in God. Which is why they all believed in a creator

being, greater than themselves, from which the universe was imagined and

formed. But I’ll tell you what it is, this messianic thread that runs through

history: at any given moment, there has to be one individual in the world who

carries more memes, or the most up-to-date memes blending the widest array of ethos’s, and that person is as a matter

of course the ‘messiah,’ for want of a better term.

The thing that makes these people’s memes stand the test of time is the fact

that they put their faith in God. Who is there in history whose memes we all

carry today who didn’t believe in God? (Einstein firmly asserted that he was

‘not an atheist’ up until his death. When asked what kind of a God he believed

in, he quoted Spinozian pantheism.)

To take an example on the flipside of the question of the longevity of a person’s

memes and whether or not it has anything to do with God, Karl Marx provides

us with a doozy. So far as his memetic structure and pedigree goes, it’s second to none. So then

why have Marx’s memes failed to take root? Because there’s no God in them, and

the buck stops with Him. If Darwin hadn’t written God into the final, official

theory of evolution as history records it, then the application of his theory

wouldn’t have yielded succesful results, because humans are in a collaboration

with God, and reality is a co-creation. The past is yet to be written. Sometimes God comes up with a

solution for how to fill in the details of the past in a way that works in the

direction we’re heading, and he passes it down into humanity, which either

accepts it or rejects it or otherwise adapts it, and sometimes humans provide

the creative spark of insight and come up with a brilliant theory, ala Darwin,

and God looks at it and says, “I’ll go with you on this one.”

In either of Newton’s and Darwin’s memetic makeup, there is an element of

God. It’s virtually impossible to find any memes which have survived the test of

time which don’t contain the God meme, no matter how good the rest of their

memes may be. Jesus’s memes taught me this. They helped me to realise how

truly remarkable what he did in his lifetime actually was, for his memes to

be thriving as they are even now, two-thousand years later. Only something that’s real can have had this kind of an

impact. If it wasn’t real, then it wouldn’t have been so effective. Evolution

would have necessarilly made his memes extinct.

Jesus’s memes taught me that if you could step outside the

third-dimension and see the history of humanity with every human to have ever

lived all at once, you’d see that we’re all binded together like threads to form a

ginormous body not unlike one of our own. That we are the consciousness,

the mind, of this body, all spread out amongst us, experiencing ourselves from

many different points of view at once. That it has to be this way, because this is

what it feels like when the process of karma is in action, and that karma had

to come into action in order to heal the giant body’s illness, whatever that may be.

Jesus’s memes taught me how that was why we have religion, and that once

the karma has worked its way through the giant body we comprise and it is

finally healed, then humanity’s separation from God will end and religion will

no longer be required.

 

Jesus died alone on the cross, with no inclination or outward sign that his

memes would survive. But he knows, now. He knows, because his mind, his

spirit, yea, even his body and blood live on in the memes we all carry with us

daily. As do Newton’s, Darwin’s, Einstein’s, Buddha’s, Moses’,

Mohammed’s, Krishna’s, Confucious’ and

LaoTzu’s. Their memes represent microstages along the path of evolution.

By believing what they believed and behaving in the way they behaved,

humanity becomes more adapted, more succesful, in its environment then it

would otherwise be. Their memes safe-guard humanity from extinction.

 

 

 

Increased emotional sensitivity among ‘Gen Z’ triggers fears of a generation of persecution victims

It may be that in coming generations, the lashes of the tongue will induce as much trauma as those of the whip.

Now that Gen Y has blossomed and seen the sun, can the ribbon on Gen Z be officially cut? What will Gen Z, representing the ‘final act’ of a triage of generations beginning with Gen X, bring to the table? And what can we expect to happen when the alphabet is finally complete?

New Age seers forecast a generation of indigo people to become readily apparent by the year 2012. It was predicted that the main difference between indigo people and their predecessors was their increased emotional sensitivity, bringing  with it a greater threshold to pain together with greater pain articulation. This coincided with rising awareness to the effects of intergenerational trauma among diaspora populations around the world.

In order to adjust legal standards to accurately delineate the degree of suffering caused, victims of sustained emotional abuse at the hands of co-workers and colleagues at workplaces and businesses may soon be classified as persecution victims.

While the actions of an emotionally abusive partner, peer group or workplace may appear to pale in comparison to the kind of sustained intimidation we generally think of when considering the term ‘persecution,’ due to the anticipated increased emotional sensitivity of coming generations, the suffering may be just as intense.

‘Tragedies occur daily when people self-sacrifice due to the ongoing emotionally abusive tactics of narcissistic workmates and colleagues.’

These episodes of trauma epigenetically impress themselves upon a person’s genes and are passed on, causing the maladjustment of future generations.

The Goldilocks Zone: A Movable Feast

Oil magnate slams allocation of tax-payer’s dollars on Mars terraforming, says, ‘NASA’s porridge too cold.’

The element most needed for life as we know it to exist is H2o. The conditions for it to occur, however, are exceedingly rare, as water only turns to liquid within a thin range of the temperature spectrum known as ‘Goldilocks’ zone.’

It may appear fortunate to live on a planet within Goldilocks’ zone, but looks can be deceiving, as it’s necessarily the case that every solar system must have one planet, nearer or farther from the sun, which is in the range of temperature where water becomes liquid.

As the sun began life in coolness and increased in hotness as it grew, Mercury was the first to bask in the temperate comfort of Goldilocks’ zone, presumably developing microscopic forms of life as it did so. When Mercury got too hot, this life may have migrated over to Venus in pursuit of a warm breakfast.

Scientists agree that in the future, the sun will swell out to an enormous size, engulfing the inner planets and causing Goldilocks’ zone to expand outward to encompass the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, rendering them habitable to the descendants of humankind.

“These martian terraforming funds are ludicrous,” said oil magnate Jon Dough in a scathing attack on community radio yesterday. “By the time they get the technology right, Goldilocks’ zone will already be there and the porridge will be ‘just right.’”
