Now, what I have served up recently, what I have brought to the table is huge, a veritable banquet & only a fool would deny it. Don’t be distracted & fixate on my opinions on guns & their owners since all it amounts to is my personal opinion, as profound as they might be.

However, what I brought to the table regarding a pineal cosmic GPS system for detecting unfallen light, higher & lower Devachan, Von Franz, Jung & Pauli’s insights, though a little misguided, into a ‘psychological equivalent of the atomic bomb’ meaning liberated pineal, the human skull as an actual Plato’s Cave & the Music of the Spheres etc. etc. is HUGE, a feast for those who would tap into the wellspring of where Truth lies rather than settle for some simplistic dead-end Darwinian copout or some junk food for the soul fast food corner church scheisse. A banquet so huge that it could feed a discerning soul not only for the rest of this life but could continue to nourish lives yet to be lived. So relax on the gun issue, man. Its small fish when what we’re frying here is fish enough to serve multitudes, a fish that I myself, now bring to the RP table. Can you dig ? Good. This stuff is real, folks. Don’t be swayed by the naysayers.

OK, I know that you think I know everything. Well, let me tell you now, I don’t. Form, man. Form. I mean WTF is that ? The form of living things. What forces mold life to their archetypal form ? What draws minerals from their earthly source into distinctive shapes & forms that we can immediately recognize as being unique to those particular life forms ? And upon death form disintegrates as minerals return to whence they came from, the earth. What are the forces that hold these complex shapes together ? We know its not electrical currents & electromagnetic fields or any other manifestations of fallen decayed light so it must emanate from the realm of primeval unfallen light.

Now here is where Lazy8 could assist an honest quest by getting his scientist brother-in-law to give some first-hand feedback on this cutting edge science that so far eludes western education. So far I am the sole advocate here for utilizing physical science alongside a science of the Spirit of Man for tapping into that Truth that most, not all, but most of us can inwardly sense.

Instead what I see here is a cutesy cabal of some highly intelligent individuals painting themselves into a corner here & setting up taboos around certain subjects based on motivations as mundane as pride & ego. Nuggler says the world is small enough as it is to be playing silly mindgames with ourselves like that. That’s not freedom, man, painting oneself into a corner. No. Kinda silly.

So, form ? A mystery to me. As are the twelve cranial nerves that form a dodecahedron at the base of the brain that houses a GPS for star mapping. Johannes Kepler knew it, that the cosmos is shaped as a dodecahedron. The ancients knew As Above So Below & now we know with the help of modern science that we have a mini cosmos or microcosm in the form of a 12 cranial nerve dodecahedron as a reflection of Kepler’s macrocosm right here housed in the brain & our pineal light receptor for intercepting those invisible forces streaming in from the greater macrocosm. Twelve nerves corresponding to a much grander 12 sided dodecahedron zodiac star map. Yes, it sounds complicated & it is but once you begin piecing it all together, the ancient knowledge with the modern, you begin to see the grander picture.

Autism…..now here too lies an interesting pineal mystery. Watch this space & don’t be phased by the naysayers.

There's more to us than surgeons can remove...

I believe you. I've heard of similar stories. I witnessed a woman who had "incurable" bleeding from her sinuses get prayed over and saw the bleeding stop and never start again.

OK, time to tell you a little more about myself than I am usually comfortable telling.

I cannot attribute this to my "faith", as I had little. I do fervently believe, however, that something happened that cannot be explained in scientific terms. If it was the "faith" of my mother and the others there that evening, I certainly cannot say their faith is false. Nor will I ever argue with any faith or belief unless it can be proven wrong.


Thanks for sharing a great story! So glad that you recovered! Call it faith or the power of the universe or whatever you want. I feel like there’s more…

An aside:
It sucks that religious folk clash and kill each other over the details. I never understood that.
