Feed the Meat Vessel Please
There Now Follows a Short Commercial Break. Stay Tuned: the Feline Invasion will Resume Shortly.
(Bast in her infinite wisdom deigns to let the puny human have his say; the vessel must be fed and maintained, after all...)
Some harmless scraps of half-knowledge from Homo Serpiens, now available a few inches to your right.
Although Man was a co-creator with God, he was a passive creator, an empty vessel through which the divine will might act upon Creation.
The Serpent changed all that.
For the longest time, the gods co-existed with their creations.
Presumably there are others like myself. . . ?
The “word” of the Bible (in the gospel of John) is a translation of the Greek “logos,” meaning ratio, that which rations and gives form by separation from the indiscriminate ocean of being.
For human beings, reality is based on memory, memory upon language.
The Gnostic tradition, to which Christ belonged, supplanted “faith” (blind obedience to an unknown power) with experience and knowledge—not intellectual knowledge but visceral, bodily illumination.
“Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you . . . For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him” (John 6: 53-56).
Is this why it is said of the wise, “For them, darkness is light, and light darkness”?
The limitations of both the Judaic and the Christian paradigm stem from the fact that Christ and Satan/Jehovah are one deity, just like Horus and Set are one.
The question is: can they be reconciled into a single archetype?
From a magikal perspective, no entity—human or otherwise, “Satan” included—can be considered “evil” in and of itself.
An archetype or god-form is a collective energy field with as many qualities as there are points of view to perceive it.
If a god-form is a collective of souls bound together by shared beliefs and perceptions, it follows that it is made up as much of dead people as live ones.
Soul-devouring is a God’s business, after all...
We now return to our Feature Presentation.
