Thank you very much, Cy, Eric and Gary, for expanding our dimesional scope, here.
I know, Eric, we of the PtB should have had Cy taken out, long ago. But, if truth be told, after the Princess, the Footmann does love Cy. Yes, she has some serious protection.
And stargates are a dime-a-dozen, evidently. And if folks want to know what's going on, they have only to watch the tv series. BFD.
My concern is more with the academic eggheads. I have a soft spot in my heart for the eggheads.
I mean, we don't want to rip them a new one.... but we sort of do. IOW, they've been thinking out of the wrong side of their heads. We just have to turn them upside down. They shouldn't mind too much.
Yes, we're all nut cases. But we share one thing in common. We've all had it up to about here, with the Katechon. We are all Tea drinking, bomb throwers, each in our own little way. We are about to have a Tea party.... and it's about time.
Going into Menas Kafatos' Framework, I had great expectations. But he kind of lost it. Non-duality has been house-broken by the materialists. It's been de-fanged. I still have one fang left.... it's called the MoAPS.
Yes, Eric, non-duality has no teeth. Monism is another story. We have prophecy.... we have history. We have the Alpha and Omega.
Cy, there's something you need to know about the PtB..... they are walking zero vectors. They parade themselves under the aegis of the Katechon. If you were in that parade, who would be your biggest fear, in the universe? I'll tell you.... it would be Chicken Little. And, yes, Cy, I also have some protection. With Ron, I mainly have protection from myself, because, after all, I'm my own worst enemy.
You are also my protector, Cy, and so are Eric and Gary. Even chicken little needs a katechon.
Someone has to slay the Dragon. That's what I volunteered for, back in '77. The dragon lies behind the green door, and that's why John wants to go in, with guns blazing. Me? I go first, with a bible. If, as in the movie, I get zapped, then John will go in.... with another bible. After awhile, I think they might get the message. We'll see.
Our final ambassador will be Kashmir. If the Dragon is not quite as stupid as it looks, it might not want to zap her.
As Eric says, Kastrup's Baloney is much more into the spirit of the BPWH/MoAPS. His heart is in the right place. I'll have to go back and look at it again......
Bernardo says it all......
And since all of reality is a metaphor for an ineffable truth, we end up finding ourselves in the strange position of having to use metaphors to clarify a metaphor. Is this crazy? Of course not. First, it is no wonder that nature, simply by being what it is, would provide suitable metaphorical images –nightly dreams, whirlpools, liquid mercury, vibrating membranes, etc. –with which we, as parts of nature, could get our bearings. After all, as discussed earlier, nature is a metaphor for itself. And second, if the goal is to understand the primary metaphor of reality, we absolutely need to use all means at our disposal to get rid of the mad interpretations of it that have obscured our view for so long. What chance do we have to make something out of the primary metaphor while living under the astonishing abstraction that reality is outside mind?
