Our built in nooscopes are being activated

Postby pilgrim-seeker_tom » Thu Nov 23, 2017 1:24 am

Recent repeated failures of propaganda and false flags to mobilize and foment the desired human reactions can only point to one conclusion ... the usefulness of intermediary communication devices are waning ... soon to be passé.

Expanding human consciousness marches on persistently and relentlessly.

I feel bad for Walmart ... their sale on nooscopes will not revive the economy. :-)

More abstract (sandbox) thought(s) ...

A nooscope is the bridge connecting small "c" consciousness (individual) with big "C" consciousness (cosmos/universe)

Religion, philosophy and science are human constructs acting as intermediaries.

Concrete thought ...

A rational explanation for the copious and largely redundant chatter on the subject of "God and Religion" and "Impossibility of God" ...

Of course ... with only "intermediaries" to support the notion of God ... the notion of God ... as a consequence ... must be impossible.

A parable ...

One day a dog is wandering around an open field ... spots a rabbit ... who at the same time notices the dog.

The dog and the rabbit do what dogs and rabbits do after a visual encounter ... start running!

The dog is panting and howling in passionate pursuit of the rabbit.

As chance would have it another dog in the vicinity hears the howling ... curiosity strikes and he heads out in search of the cause ... finds the dog and joins it ... panting and howling ... though it has no knowledge/understanding of the motivation for all this activity.

Another dog in the vicinity does the same and so on and so on until there is a large pack of dogs panting and howling for no known reason.

Eventually one of the dogs in the pack "wakes up" and says to tself ... what the hell am I doing this for? With no suitable answer the dog pulls away from the pack.

... and so on and so on until only the original dog remains in the chase ... only this dog knows what it is chasing and why.

The moral of the story?

Only people who 'see' the 'rabbit' will persistently and relentlessly pant after the 'rabbit'.

Read this today ... seems relevant to this OP:

Our relationship to God works in the same way. Initially, when our intimacy is not so deep, we feel that we understand things and we have firm feelings and ideas about God. But the deeper we journey, the more those feelings and ideas will begin to feel false and empty because our growing intimacy is opening us to the fuller mystery of God. Paradoxically this feels like God is disappearing and becoming non-existent.
