The bible is only meant to be read literally by people who read it literally. Others realize that there's more to it and try to figure out what that stuff is. The original "bible code" was the discovery that the word TORAH is spelled out by counting every 50th letter in Genesis.

All the numbers in the bible have a deeper meaning, (why say "153 fish" and not "a crapload of fish"?) and some numbers refer to words and vice versa (the gematria mentioned by others here). Besides turning letters into their numeric equivalent, there's also the atbash cipher, which in English would be like replacing A with Z, B with Y, and so on. In the bible, the place name Sheshach is code for Babel (Babylon). The person who reads it literally is confused, but the person who realizes there's more there might figure out that Sheshach means Babel, and once they see that they will start to wonder how many other words are encoded and how many types of ciphers are being used. Another famous example is a word not found in the bible but is very well known these days: "Baphomet," the androgynous goat-headed figure which the Templars worshiped, which turns out to be an atbash cipher of Sophia, the Greek goddess of wisdom.

It should be noted, as techstepgenr8tion mentioned, that the letters were the numbers in ancient languages such as Hebrew, and figuring out the value of each word is called gematria. In Darren Aronofsky's movie Pi a man befriends the protagonist Max, a renowned mathematician, and in an attempt to recruit him to find the lost name of god for his group of Cabbalists he shows Max how numbers are an important part of the language:

Quote:
אב "father" = 1 + 2 = 3,
אם "mother" = 1 + 40 = 41
(Father + Mother = ) ילד "child" = 10 + 30 + 4 = 44

He also gives this example of numbers hidden in the bible which Max immediately recognizes as numbers from the Fibonacci sequence:
Quote:
כעדן = Eden = 20+70+4+50 = 144
עץ החיים = Tree of Life = 70+90+5+8+10+10+40 = 233

Of course, the further you delve into this it becomes hard to decide what was intentionally encoded in the bible and what is a coincidence, and that's part of the magic of it; like art, its value lies in its subjective quality. The number 144 is found in many places in the bible from the number of hours in the 6 days of creation all the way to the 144,000 who are supposed to be raptured up to heaven in Revelations. It's up to you to figure out, or decide for yourself, what these symbols mean and work backwards from there using your intuition.

I was reading a couple of books on alchemy some years ago and the author mentioned that an operation might take an "alchemical month" of 40 days. I realized then that when the number 40 was used in the bible (the flood, Moses receiving the commandments, wandering the desert, Jesus in the wilderness, etc.) it was indicating a period of purification and meditation before something happens. That something was probably the birth of a person after 40 weeks of pregnancy (floating in a flood of birth-water before being born into a new world like Noah). If you take religion back to its roots you're going to find that a lot of it deals with the human body (the microcosm), and the rest deals with astrological observations (the macrocosm).

Speaking of: earth's axial precession takes roughly 26,000 years, a number very much equated with god since the gematria of Yahweh is 26. And it takes 72 years for the axis to move one degree, a number found in the amount of hours in 3 days of death and resurrection all the way up to the 72 three-letter names for god hidden in Psalms. 72 names of 3 letters totals 216 (6*6*6) for the 'divided name' of god; the same length of a name which they are looking for in Pi. Interestingly, the modern Tarot consists of 78 cards, or 3 (trinity) x 26 (god). Modern playing cards eliminate one god/26 from the deck giving us only 52 cards, which is the number of weeks in a year, which is split into 4 seasons/suits of 13 cards per suit for the 13 lunar months of 28 days (13x28=364 days in a year with 1 day out-of-time). I imagine that in the ancient world, mnemonic devices such as card games and bible stories encoded a lot of information which we may today be unaware of.

So, the previous example of the measure of the fish was almost certainly put there intentionally to hide the square root of 3 in plain sight. These sacred numbers and ratios are found all over ancient sacred sites up to more recent Gothic cathedrals. These temples are meant to represent the human body which in turn represents--was made in the image of--god.

That may be so but you've got a problem. The Hebrew Bible is believed to be a post exile compilation of at least four sources. And for hundreds of years afterward the language is believed to have been subtly altered in places. That's why there are some differences today between the earliest texts and the medieval Masoretic text that Jews use today. But I'm sure that people who are into numerology already know that.

Which is not to say there is nothing to it. Priests do all sorts of strange things.

i appreciate the knowledge and insights provided in this thread...

A common fallacy of thinking is that humans today...although we have the advantage of a huge amount of collective intelligence through science..are more advanced in the intuitive type of thinking..that makes a whole brain tick...

in synchrony...

There is knowledge..

And there is knowing...

Two very different processes of

mind..affect..and total effect of

being human...

And science is just learning..in infantile stage...

Of how there is memory encoded in our DNA...

of the TRUE experiences of our ancestors..as far as we..

can imagine today...

And the feats of intelligence..of Mayans..and ancient Egypt...

are beyond any credible understanding of science today...

A great example i love to use...

To show just how infantile human collective intelligence is...

IS THE EXAMPLE OF CORAL CASTLE IN FLORIDA...

THERE IS NO FRIGGIN' REAL SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION OF HOW A
100LB OLD MAN..COULD MAKE A CASTLE OF CORAL LIKE THIS....

OTHER THAN..his life as hermit..and seeking insight of hims self...

AS ONE WITH THE ONE THAT IS ALL...

OR GOD..

OR WHATEVER
ONE WANTS TO CALL

WHATEVER..IT IS THAT..MAKES REAL LIFE HUMAN MIRACLES..

HAPPEN EVERYDAY..WHERE FOLKS EMPLOY THE FULL POTENTIAL...

OF BEING HUMAN....

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amXsPcD7g5g[/youtube]

AND THE guy who narrates the video..who researches this..for two decades...

is just as much of an 'Asperger nerd' AS MOST anyone WHO VISITS here...

ON THIS SO CALLED WRONG PLANET....

His special interest...though.. is open minded ...

not the closeD mind of only science as it exists now..

if one so chooses to look at science..as conclusion

rather than continuing device for TRUE KNOWING...

NOT STATIC KNOWLEDGE....

AND YES THE BIBLE.. in its form today..IS IRONICALLY.. NUMERICALLY
CODED BY SOME OF THE
SAME TYPE OF MINDS THAT VISIT..

THIS SITE...

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE AGAIN...

IS A
TOTALLY

OPEN MIND..

WHERE INTUITION..FEELING..LOGIC..REASON...

COMBINE TO MAKE A SUPER ENGINE...

OF MIND..

IN KNOWING...
NOW..
NOT YESTERDAY...
OR

THE DAY BEFORE.....
ONLY IN STATIC
SCIENCE.

It would seem that the people in charge of each translation of the books of the old and new testament knew enough of what they were doing to successfully pass on most of what was originally there, in addition to adding their own updates to old knowledge, I'm sure. There's a lot of things spoken in the bible, probably in Greek, that still carry much wisdom in English. But we do lose the Greek gematria value for the words (Jesus Christ = 888). Now gematria seems to me to be a mostly subjective exercise, like reading tarot cards or tea leaves, so you can probably find just as much symbolic profundity in the English bible by using A=1, or A=0, or all numbers being a multiple of 6, or whatever form of gematria you wish to use. I don't personally find gematria to be all that interesting except for a few small examples, and I'm not really sure just how deep the connections go or to what ancient truths they may be pointing.

One thing I did notice while looking up gematria values before, which may be a synchronicity, is the gematria of the protagonists eBay handle in Transformers. Sam calls himself "LadiesMan217." The number 217 is the value of the Hebrew name Deborah which means "bee." Sam is befriended and protected by "Bumblebee." It's not like there isn't anyone in Hollywood who could possibly know Hebrew, right? Either way, be it done on purpose or by a happy accident, the information is there for us to discover. And that discovery, I think, has an impact; it produces a very subtle but real change in the mind. Stagnation is death and change is symbolic of life so you'll want to give you mind and your intuition a good workout by doing more than memorizing trivia or reading myths at face value. I love movies but I don't mistake for a second that they're not really about something much deeper than boy meets girl, and girl turns out to be a sexy alien. (Actually, that movie may just be about sexy aliens.)

Think outside the box, as they say... hmm, a boxy cube has 6 sides, 8 vertices, and 12 edges, numbers which sum to 26 (think of your Rubik's cube and its 26 pieces). 26 is Yahweh/El (Micha-el, Gabri-el, etc.) and was what the ancients called Saturn, which is symbolized by a black square or cube. A cube can be unfolded into a cross and a cube turned so we look directly at one apex creates a 2D outline of a hexagon. So we have sacred numbers (8, 12, 26), sacred symbols (the cube, cross, and hexagram/"Star of David"), and a symbolic movement between dimensions, or the micro and macro, (how the 3D cube makes a 2D hexagon and vice versa), all rolled into one object: your Rubik's cube!

aghogday, thank you for that video, I love Coral Castle. That's definitely on my bucket list. I like what you said, not just about intuition, which Einstein valued above all else, but also the aspie-like quality of the people who had an interest in creating these wonders and those who have an interest in studying them. I saw on an aspergers documentary someone say that some aspies will see everything as connected. I know I certainly have that conception of the world because I've been seeing the net of Indra my whole life, but I especially like movies and ancient symbolism, and I often combine the two. :D

If you took any random published book- grabbed any bodice-ripper from the Harlequin Romance rack at the drugstore say-and applied gematria to the letters on its pages you would probably find as many "meaningful" correlations as from the Bible.

The scene from the i Heart Huckabee movie speaks volumes on the Truth of our existence..and of course it's nothing new and the allegories for this in history are too numerous to provide a number for...

I saw the tapestry of connection of ALL..from the time i was three..before i developed the ability to speak in verbal language...

Interestingly..the DSMIV diagnostic criteria for Asperger's syndrome does not FULLY reflect what Hans Asperger described in his case studies for Asperger's syndrome..IT IS JUST A WATERED DOWN VERSION OF WHAT WAS THERE BEFORE..FOR AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER..and it is the same now..with the DSM5..the only true place now that Asperger's exist and ever existed is in the Gillberg Criteria...

The Gillberg criteria does..REFLECT HANS ASPERGER'S CASE STUDIES..and it does allow for the hyperlexic type of language delay that i experienced in childhood...

But interestingly..too.. non-verbal learning disorder symptoms..are much different than the hyperlexic flavored spectrum condition that Hans Asperger's described and what the DSMIV and 5 describes as Asperger's Syndrome captures individuals with symptoms of non verbal learning disorder..symptoms that are often associated with a weakness in thinking in patterns and visual images...

And many of these individuals have difficulty reading non-verbal expressions..per this deficit and some even do not recognize faces...

When i first arrived on this site..the type of Asperger's syndrome that i knew in 'REAL' life..per the limited individuals i came across with this syndrome including my sister..did have this ability to see more synchronicities in life than the average person walking the street...

However..the first thread i started on this site..reflected an opposite reality here on this site..where some folks had little recognition..of synchonicity.. in their full 'REAL' life and many others simply said it was meaningless coincidence..

Then what i find here..is that most people here ..through informal polls..do have symptoms of nonverbal learning disorder..which the DSMIV does capture more than any subtype of what the DSMIV described as Asperger's syndrome...and continuing now with the DSM5 more than ever....

So it seems that individuals that do not experience the extreme pattern recognition..of a hyperlexic leaning individual with Asperger's syndrome..and conversely are extremely verbal and very detail oriented in close attention to dotting every i and crossing every t in written communication..are dead in general AFFECT and effect in mind..in seeing the big picture..basically...

Or.. to use the allegory of the film you linked.. 'THE BLANKET OF full EXISTENCE'..

WHICH CAN AND DOES lead to the experience of Nirvana or Bliss..or oneness of being with ALL THAT IS...

ONCE one GAINS this enlightenment with ONE...

And sadly when one uses universal allegories like this to describe the ONE THAT IS ALL..

OR THE CONNECTEDNESS OF EVERYTHING...OR THE BLANKET OR WHATEVER ALLEGORY....

ARRIVES AT THE SAME DESTINATION OF THE ONENESS OF ALL...

MANY folks here..particularly in this forum..see Universal language as only specks of word salad...

Instead of ONE COMPREHENSIVE WHOLE...

BUT WHAT i THINK may be THE ISSUE...

IS.. PERHAPS OUR CULTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCE OVERALL...

IN A LIFE STUCK IN MECHANICAL COGNITION...stunts big picture thinking GROWTH!

RATHER THAN A FULL FLOWING EMOTIONAL..EMPATHIC..EXPERIENCE OF LIFE IN BALANCE..

WITH MECHANICAL COGNITION...

THE YIN AND YANG BALANCE...if ya will..

THAT i'm sure you understand as YOU DO SEE THE BIG PICTURE..OBVIOUSLY..AND IT IS OBVIOUS TO ME..in just reading a few paragraphs from you when you first arrived here..before you elaborated here on your ability to SEE the BIG PICTURE OF LIFE...

OUR SOCIETY THOUGH..in all it's patriarchal..YANG WAYS..particularly in rural areas..like my deep south..red state..area...

Can be extremely fundamentalist..or detail thinking folks..with little to no ability to see the BIG PICTURE...

BUT WHAT I THINK IS THE CORE ISSUE...

IS TAKING AWAY THE YIN FOR CONTROL OF CHILDREN...PARTICULARLY MALES...

TO BE OBEDIENT ROBOTS..AND PLAY THEIR ASSIGNED ROLES AS DICTATED BY OTHERS...


THE SADDEST PART AND THE MOST IRONIC PART..IS WHEN a person takes away the YIN from a male..to make them big men..big strong patriarchal men..the opposite happens in big picture reality....

It is the Yin or the divine goddess OR divine feminine that provides TRUE STRENGTH IN LIFE..AND HAHA..EVEN THE ABILITY FOR A MARTIAL ARTIST TO EXCEL...

OVER A MECHANICAL BOXER...

THE MECHANICAL YANG FIGHTER OPPOSED TO THE YIN FIGHTER..WHO FLOWS..WITH THE GOLDEN SPIRAL..

OF THE BLANKET..IF YOU WILL..which i feel confident..that you follow with me here...2

I am extremely tuned to this..as i am the extremely sensitive to all tactile and emotional contagion experiences of life..type of spectrum individual..as well as an EXTREME INPUT..OR 'WATCHER' HUMAN BEING...reading 10 to 15 times as fast as the average human being..but having difficulty speaking coherently until well after middle age....

RATHER THAN A VERBOSE INDIVIDUAL..AS I AM NOW.. AS A RESULT OF NO CHOICE BUT TO DEVELOP THAT PART OF MY MIND..THROUGH PHYSICAL HEALTH ISSUE OF LOSING EFFECTIVE USE OF MY EYES OR EARS..FOR over 60 months...

THAT IS THE WAY TO EXTREME INPUT IN PATTERN RECOGNITION IN LIFE...for those who are born with that propensity...with eyes and ears..that SEE MORE..than most...and beyond physical eyes and ears...of course....

But along with a pain disorder..actually the most extreme known to medical literature..type 2 trigeminal neuralgia..constantly from waking to sleeping hours for over 60 months..i also lost almost all my emotion..

And most interestingly.. i also lost the ability to recognize synchronicity in life...during those 60 months...

So it seems that this ability..is more present in people who do have a strong empathic..emotional balanced brain in life...

And in our world of increasing mechanical cognition..analyzing details..instead of developing a mind to see the big picture..or blanket as so adequately and simply described in the 'I HEART HUCKABEE' MOVIE...

FOLKS ARE INCREASINGLY LOSING THE ABILITY TO SEE THE blanket OF LIFE..

OR THE TREES INSTEAD OF THE FOREST..AND ALL THE OTHER METAPHORS IN LIFE...

THAT BASICALLY RELATE TO WHAT CAN BE A BALANCED MIND...

IF PROPERLY EXERCISED AS SUCH...

MY path back to human bliss..nirvana..oneness..or whatever metaphor that describes what can be a balance and homeostasis of life..so simply experienced by our wild animal 'brothers and sisters'..AND LOST IN A MATRIX OF CULTURAL ILLUSION..IN MECHANICAL COGNITION..

IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT PATH TO ONCE AGAIN..FIND MYSELF ON ...

THE SAME TYPE OF KNOWING.. THE blanket OF EXISTENCE AS WHEN I WAS THREE...

THE TYPE OF INTELLIGENCE..THAT HAS NO AGE..GENDER..DEMOGRAPHIC..OR ILLUSORY CONTENT PROVIDED BY CULTURE..

KNOWING THE ALL

BEING THE BLANKET...

BEING THE LIGHT..

OF TRUE

ENLIGHTENMENT...

BASICALLY UNDERSTANDING THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US...or even
any material substance...

IS NEVER SEPARATED 'FORM' from THE METAPHOR FOR THE ALLITIS...

GOD or 'the water of existence'..instead of formed chalice..only....

SO YES..WHILE YOU WITH YOUR TYPE OF ASPEGER'S SYNDROME WILL LIKELY HAVE NO PROBLEM UNDERSTANDING..THIS WHOLE MONOLOGUE...

OTHER FOLKS WILL ONLY SEE IT AS

DETAILS


OR

GIBBERISH...


OR WORD SALAD OR WHATEVER.....


INSTEAD OF


BLANKET...;)

BUT I THINK THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE..THAT OTHERS.. TOO...

CAN

BE
THE

BLANKET...:)2

SO i never give up..on that ...

As i made it back as blanket...AND BEING LIGHT...

So perhaps..no matter how lost a person..whatever their diagnosed condition...

or undiagnosed condition..may be...

CAN BE...!

what the REAL DUDE JESUS DESCRIBED

AS SAVED...

FROM THE MATRIX...

IF I MAY USE ANOTHER...

MOVIE METAPHOR...

OF

TRUTH..BLANKET..:)
AND THE ONENESS
OF ALL.. MOST DEFINITELY INCLUDING...

US!AND
ALLOFUS!

Whether all of US

SEE
IT
or
NOt!sadly as that may be...2

Exactly! We live in a virtual reality where things which once only existed in the mind are now externalized around us. Of course any book or piece of art is going to tell us something about the mind/god, and each has the potential to give us synchronicities which are a blend of objective events and subjective impressions.

Ceremonial magick is ultimately the confusion of the conscious mind (with incense and special words and gestures, etc.) to allow temporary access--opening the door--to the unconscious mind. Meditation on strings of Hebrew consonants which are also numbers is just one method out of many. I obsess over details as much as anyone else here, and what I find in my own meditations on the world around me is: all things are connected. Indeed, given enough time and information, one could conceivably prove it. It's been said a thousand times in a thousand languages, but there's a different effect from just reading about it to actually finding it out for your self. And, as your experience of the universe is entirely subjective, so too is your understanding of it and the meaning you apply to it. In quantum physics it is understood that the observer is inseparable from that which is observed. There's an X-Files episode where Scully says that the meaning of life is to give life meaning.

Like aghogday was saying, there's two parts to everything, what Carl Jung called mysterium coniunctionis after the idea in alchemy of blending opposites; the coincidence of opposites. In the yin-yang symbol the light half seeks to descend with its seed of darkness, and the dark half seeks to ascend with its seed of light. And, as I always resort to referencing movies, this idea can been seen in how Austin Powers and Dr. Evil are played by the same actor: the dark side and the light side are two sides of the same thing.

The bible exists as its own entity separate from us. However, the moment we observe it we cannot help but to taint it with our own subjective experience. There's nothing wrong with this, and in fact, it is probably the whole point of using ciphers in the bible: to trick you into trying to find more there, even if no more secrets exist. You'll still find something from the simple exercise of looking.

For another approach to the bible, the Meru foundation (link) has found a spiral in the first passage of Genesis which describes a shape that can be turned to form every letter of the Hebrew alphabet, as if the Torah encodes its own origins.
Image
A rabbi once said that the whole Torah was in Genesis, and all of Genesis is in the first chapter, and the first chapter is within the first verse and the first verse is within the first letter. Basically, he was saying that the Torah was a fractal spiraling out from its beginning.

I find it interesting that the spiral of letters wraps around three times, as the kundalini is said to be wound in 3 and a half turns at the base of the spine.

the secret of BLISS...

Actually BELIEVING IT AND FEELING IT..

IS WELL..

THE CHALLENGE..

OF ALL OF LIFE...

BUT THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT
THE REAL HISTORICAL JESUS..
IS REALLY TALKING ABOUT..

WHEN HE SPEAKS OF EYES OF NEEDLES
AND CAMELS..
ENTERING AS SUCH..
IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN NOW..

DESCRIBED VERY WELL IN THE
GNOSTIC GOSPEL OF THOMAS..
NO MATTER WHO WROTE THE
DAM THING..;)

UNIVERSAL TRUTH IS UNIVERSAL TRUTH..

TO DISCERN IT..

IS ALSO THE CHALLENGE..
OF LIFE..
BEING HUMAN...
BEING ONE WITH GOD..
NOW..
MAKES IT A WHOLE
LOT
DAM
EASIER..:)

@least in my opinion..
to keep it humble..
is also the
key..
of IT
ALL...

They made me work sunday mourning - we counted the inventory of a bookstore.

And guess what section that had me count?

The boddess rippers! The first two hours of the day, at a rate of almost 1200 pieces an hour I scanned the barcodes of books with titles like "Destiny's Embrace" with pics of guys without shirts ravishing ladies on the covers.

That coincidence must be a sign from God. Not sure what its a sign of, but it must be for something!

I love Universe in a Nutshell. Humans are nature, by the way. A tree doesn't borrow water from nature in order to grow branches in accordance with the Fibonacci sequence. And a person who explains it, whether by the numerical value of the "Tree of Life" (233) in "Eden" (144) or by observation and mathematical proofs, is not borrowing from nature, they are just nature expressing its self in a new way. But nature isn't just those things which can be categorized and easily referenced, per Fox Mulder. The math is the map, not the territory, and it's always going to be a dimension lower than reality.

Packaging information into parables, ciphers, and symbolism forces you to use more than just your left hemisphere to get at the truth. An expansion of brain usage will naturally lead to an expansion of consciousness. When the observer changes, so does the observed. As T. S. Eliot wrote: "We shall not cease from our exploration, and at the end of all our exploring, we shall arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."

Be they a shaman, priest, or scientist, they will all eventually hit you with the same truth filtered through their unique lens:

Seriously..from my experience that is not necessarily a cause and effect sign..but just a wink from the 'blanket' or GOD..letting ya see..a sign of the 'whole'..

sometimes the next step may be a smile from the 'blanket'..

And what i personally KNoW for [email protected] FOR ME..is when ya perceive the blanket laughing WITH YA..

THERE WILL NEVER LIKELY BE ANOTHER FEAR FOR YA NOW..

COMPLETE WORRY FREE...

IT'S KINDA KOOL...

AS I USED TO HAVE one of the most severe cases of anxiety..post traumatic stress disorder..and random panic attacks..that my military psychiatrist and had ever come across in his experience with combat fatigue..and generally speaking PTSD symptom leaning folks..nervous breakdowns..the stress inducing path to up to death symptoms overall..for a person who tries a little too hard in life..

to
FIT IN...

Considering i am fearless now...

it makes me FEEL a little passionate.. that yes!

REAL HUMAN MIRACLES ARE POSSIBLE IN LIFE...

BUT WITHOUT BELIEVE..

THERE IS LITTLE CHANCE FOR REAL HUMAN MIRACLES TO EXIST...

in one's REAL HUMAN BEING..LIFE....

FOR ME ..the first GOD wink i received after coming out of REAL HUMAN HELL FOR OVER 60 MONTHS..

IS very relieving..then a 'Blanket' smile...

And i usually perceive GOD laughing WITH ME SEVERAL TIMES A DAY NOW..

WITH AT TIMES..SCORES OF GOD WINKS..IN ONLY ONE DAY'S NOW...

BUT IT IS THE FLOW OF BOTH HEMISPHERES OF BRAIN..
THE MASCULINE AND FEMININE BALANCE

AND BALANCE IN GENERAL..

DOWN TO ONE FOOT BALANCED WITH THE OTHER..

IN EVERY PLACE A PERSON MOVES...

THAT CAN LEAD TO THIS PLACE OF NIRVANA OR BLISS...

BUT ONE MUST

'HEAR' THE FIRST STEP...

BELIEVE..

AND CONTINUE TAKING EACH STEP..

IN FULL BELIEF..OF THE HIGHER REAL POWER THAT IS..WHEN one CONNECTS TO THE 'BLANKET' OR GOD
OF ALL OF EXISTENCE...

IN SIMPLE TOTAL ONENESS..AND TRUST...!

AS SIMPLE AS MY CAT ROLLING AROUND IN THE SAND..BASKING IN THE SUN..

ON ANY MORN..OR AFTERNOON...

OR HUGGIN THE EARTH..UNDER A FULL..OR EVEN NEW MOON..

NIGHT...

But of course my cat is not cursed with the illusion maker of complex language..collective intelligence..and complex culture...he is born as blanket and stays there forevermore NOW!

He gets to be free..

thank GOD..i do too..NOW!
as i too..perceive the full blanket2...

Well..i personally can certainly 'vouch' for the TRUTH of the Potential of the raising of consciousness through..left hemisphere connecting with fuller right hemisphere through creating and discerning parables..ciphers..and in general symbolism..

And particularly too..TAI CHI like movement balancing the body as ONE..2...

The Universe is only the reality we see...

So YNOt..see the biggest part possible...

of WE..

IS what i recommend2...;)

But been there done the trapped left hemisphere stuff..

Living in a FULL 360 DEGREE BRAIN..is the difference between..black and white TV..
and HD Living color..or a beach on a spring day..full of bikini's and such...

But of course as ya say..science is catching up on the TRUTH2..

AS now science understands that the social cognition..or empathic..INTUITIVE FEELING PART OF THE BRAIN...
IS REPRESSED..WHEN mechanical only cognition..or that left hemisphere stuff..in metaphor2..is used only solely..

THEREBY WITHERING AWAY..HALF A DAM BRAIN...

instead of SOULY...;)FULLY USING BOTH SIDES OF THE BRAIN..IN THE NOW OF A DAY...

MAKING THE WHOLE DAM THING..

A SUPER ENGINE OF BRAIN..

CONNECTING MORE FULLY WITH THE SUPRAORGANISM..OF MIND..
OF THE ENTIRE SPECIES ON EARTH NOW..AND PERHAPS BEYOND..
ALONG WITH
CHI..ENERGY PROGRESSING TO KUNDALINI FIREWORKS OF LIBIDO ENERGY..
CHANGING THE WORLD AROUND one..WITH THE ONE THAT IS ALL..THE BLANKET...OR GOD...!

AS LADY GAGA SO EASILY DOES..
IN HER KUNDALINI..FREE STYLE CEREMONIAL MAGICK..
VIDEO...the one linked earlier..above...
with SOME folks IN THE TOTAL VIEWING AUDIENCE feeling a little bit of it..through their mirror neurons..subconsciously gathering
up the WTF just happened feeling..:)
AND WTF DOES ALL THAT RANDOM SH** IN THE VIDEO MEAN...
BUT IT FEELS GOOD..I THINK I'LL WATCH IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.....

But.. nah modern science ain't caught up to that one..YeT!

But..give several thousand specializing scientists..enough time..
and the total effect of their minds working independently together..

will possibly and perhaps likely make it tHere one day 2...

to give a little more faith..to the science only

thinking minds...:)yah..some of the left hemisphere only leaning folks...

But until then..
i guess fewer of us may be..IN fULLER HUMAN BEING..

WILL basicAlly enjoy

BLISS..
FOREVERMORENOW!

simply through
WILL
in
NOW!

AS FULLEST POTENTIAL BEING HUMAN..
BEING NOW!

BUT in HONOR OF THE WTF'S IN LIFE..
FOR THE HERD AND ALL OF THAT...

HERE'S LADY GAGA'S VIDEO

ONE MORE TIME..

AS ENCORE AND

SUCH AS 'THAT'..;)

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNu_-deVemE[/youtube]

And peace and blessings to ya..2..:)
