You may be surprised at how different the old symbols look with "new eyes"
I know! I recently learned that the Nazi thing, symbol, went back even further than I had already learned about from studying this stuff, and "probably" represents what I and others call the Zero Point Energy (ZPE) field (ZPF) concept. It is easy from there to understand WHY this symbol was picked to represent this ultimate source of energy in that regime because control came/comes easily when energy is controlled. Control of energy=power.
Data is just data, interpreting it is personal. Is there any new data in the system Patrick? Could there be new ideas? I think the consensus Reality can use some new ideas. It could be that everything has already been tried, and any attempt to change paradigms is a futile exercise, but I think not. :)
A new paradigm is inevitable. Awareness is sweeping across the planet. the fear-mongers sense the end of their thousand years of darkness. The new consciousness is growing from the ground up. its not the data that is flawed its the perception of the data. The new Paradigm is not NEW information, It may well be very old but we can only now, perceive it. It was here all along, right under our collective noses.
There is an old saying "Be careful not the throw out the baby with the bathwater". The old information is still good. People have sifted through the old data and discovered the truth. People have written down road maps and left them for us to find and decipher. Tom C. was not the first, nor will he be the last, to discover the true nature of this Absolute Unbounded Oneness that became Absolute Unbounded Manifold. He just uses new and different Metaphors to describe the very old truth. Joseph Campbell - my other favorite Campbell- says:
Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, “This is what I need.” It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment—not discouragement—you will find the strength there. Any disaster you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege!! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. Then, when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures, followed by wreckage, were the incidents that shaped the life you have now. You’ll see this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you are required to exhibit strength, it comes.
"Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.
It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.
