My Religion

Now if you imagine that man got rid of his platonic belief in the immaterial, the profane hedonism and simplicity of the man who offends even the devil becomes spiritualized and there is no more sin. The entire dichotomy of good and evil dissolves and places man above the good and bad gods. But the first appearance of ths process of the renaturalization of man is always obscene; we are working and understanding all this already under the yoke of christian interpretation, and the doctrine of materialism is offensive to that.

Ultimately the gods (the devil in this case) are reduced to an anthropomorphic parody of human quibbling and negotiating. How silly the faustian allegory can seem under these terms.


But the genealogy of "materialism" and material itself is traceable to religious thought.

You don't find ground not because it isn't there, but because you don't look in the right place.

Indeed, a renaturalization of man is a rereligiousizaition of man.

Unless you have achieved Zarathustrian level enlightenment. And you haven't.

You don't even know your way in or out of the labyrinth. Even though you play a mean guitar.

Primordial chaos birthed this planet and when this planet eventually dies along with all life as we know it primordial chaos will reclaim it once again. The natural state of humanity is chaos, so much so that when we try to install order through human will more chaos is always the direct result.

Chaos is always prevailing, it always creeps around stalking human beings in all life endeavors, chaos is our true guiding master.

In all the religious or spiritual pantheons of gods and demi gods, chaos gods are always the more honest. The gods of order always the more deceptive or dishonest.


Chronos is not Chaos. Chaos is what produced Chronos.

Some say that Chaos means void. But like, is it possible that the Greek language would be offended at such a puny word as void?

Would a Greek's imagination even held a lack of existence as existence?

No. No they would not. Or they would have. As part of Chaos. Not as Chaos.

Chaos to me is a perspective of things that seem disorderly or random.
But in fact, they are still being determined, just not in a linear fashion.
Chaos is non linear force, which is a more high and true expression of energy.

Maybe I'm wrong though..


I like where you're going with that Dan, the true expression of non linear force.

It's pre-mathematics, I think of it as a sort of environment to which human beings cannot control. [Where human beings cannot effectively control each other.]

I've always interpreted him as a chaos god, much of religion relies upon various interpretations.

That's fair enough. But you should know that it's unorthodox.

Makes sense, I tend to be unorthodox in everything.

Itself that is very unorthodox because in a lot of ways Chronos is the God of orthodoxy.

That's interesting because I view his son Zeus as being the god of orthodoxy parting ways with his father.

Well "parting ways" itself is a very unorthodox thing to do.

Issa very hard to encapsulate Zeus.

It's fair to say that he is the God of the way things are, but the way things are are not always orhtodox.
