Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintence ~ Robert M. Pirsig

Published February 26, 2023 by tindertender

The term logos, the root word of “logic,” refers to the sum total of our rational understanding of the world. Mythos is the sum total of the early historic and prehistoric myths which preceded the logos. The mythos includes not only the Greek myths but the Old Testament, the Vedic Hymns and the early legends of all cultures which have contributed to our present world understanding. —

The mythos-over-logos argument points to the fact that each child is born as ignorant as any caveman. What keeps the world from reverting to the Neanderthal with each generation is the continuing, ongoing mythos, transformed into logos but still mythos, the huge body of common knowledge that unites our minds as cells are united in the body of man. To feel that one is not so united, that one can accept or discard this mythos as one pleases, is not to understand what the mythos is. —

There is only one kind of person, Phædrus said, who accepts or rejects the mythos in which he lives. And the definition of that person, when he has rejected the mythos, Phædrus said, is “insane.” To go outside the mythos is to become insane. —

Quality! Virtue! Dharma! That is what the Sophists were teaching! Not ethical relativism. Not pristine “virtue.” But areté. Excellence. Dharma! Before the Church of Reason. Before substance. Before form. Before mind and matter. Before dialectic itself. Quality had been absolute. Those first teachers of the Western world were teaching Quality, and the medium they had chosen was that of rhetoric. He has been doing it right all along. —

And the bones of the Sophists long ago turned to dust and what they said turned to dust with them and the dust was buried under the rubble of declining Athens through its fall and Macedonia through its decline and fall. Through the decline and death of ancient Rome and Byzantium and the Ottoman Empire and the modern states…buried so deep and with such ceremoniousness and such unction and such evil that only a madman centuries later could discover the clues needed to uncover them, and see with horror what had been done. —

The Difference Between Fallen Angels and Demons

Published December 3, 2022 by tindertender

A few hi lights from the above videos:

Fallen angels can materialize at will and are much more powerful than demons. They don’t die and can mate and have children.

Fallen angels chose to leave their first estate and violate humans, interbreeding hibreds.

Hibreds were known as nephilim, demons are the disembodied hibreds.

The hibreds die, unlike the fallen angels, but they live longer than humans, as humans are injected with disease, kept in addictive phases, and their energies are harvested so not only are they poisoned until they die, they are operating at a fraction of their Source energy, Life Force.

Demons need to “get in” a body, that’s why alcohol is legal. During the stages of inebriation, the safety shield of the auric fields weaken and allows entry. Black outs? Nah, that’s just you being kicked aside for awhile while a demon uses your body for a good time.

Law makers (politicians/ dark magicians) have made deals with demons for power, they sold folks out, as they enticed youth into alcoholism and other drug addictions from a young age. By the time they are adults, many are so deep into habitual patterns of self abuse … it’s really sad.

Humans, in their ignorance, don’t know of these “deals” made at their expense. These “rulers” think humans are stupid because they just go along with whatever they say, dark magic “deals with demons” have proven to be quite effective at hypnotizing the masses into lethargy, apathy and compliance.

Chimera of Arezzo | V century BC e.

Written by @AndTartary

Chimera was a three-headed creature which ravaged the countryside of Lykia (Lycia) in Anatolia. It was a bizarre fire-breathing creature with the body and head of a lion, a goat’s head rising from its back, the udders of a goat, and a serpent for a tail.

The hero Bellerophon was commanded by King Iobates to slay the beast. He rode into battle on the back of the winged horse Pegasos and drove a lead-tipped lance into its flaming throat, choking the beast on molten metal.

Forest People

Published February 23, 2022 by tindertender

The forest people go by many names. Here is the more common name used among the Cherokee people, and the origin of the name.

Tsul ‘Kalu [pronounced Sool Kaloo] (the slant-eyed or sloping giant), is a legendary figure of Cherokee mythology who plays the role of “the great lord of the game”, and as such is frequently invoked in hunting rites and rituals.

The tale is one of the best known Cherokee legends and was recorded by Europeans as early as 1823, often using the spelling, Tuli cula. The name Tsul ‘Kalu means literally “he has them slanting/sloping”, being understood to refer to his eyes, although the word eye (akta, plural dikta) is not a part of it. In the plural form it is also the name of a traditional race of giants in the far west

He is said to dwell in a place called Tsunegun’yi. The words Tsul and Tsune and their variations appear in a number of Cherokee place names throughout the Southeastern United States, especially in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee.

Tsul`kälû’ Tsunegûñ’yï is a 100-acre (40 ha) patch on a slope of the mountain Tanasee Bald in Jackson County, North Carolina, on the ridge upon which the boundari of Haywood, Jackson, and Transylvania Counties converge. It is believed Tsul ‘Kalu was responsible for clearing the spot for his residence. The name is sometimes corrupted by Europeans to Jutaculla; consequently the area is also known as the “Jutaculla Old Fields”. There is also a large slab of soapstone called “Jutaculla Rock” nearby, which is covered with strange scratches and carvings. These markings are said to have been made by the giant when he would jump from his home on the mountain to the creek below.

Another place associated with Tsul ‘Kalu, Tsula’sinun’yi (literally “where the footprint is”), is located on the Tuckasegee River, about a mile above Deep Creek in Swain County, North Carolina. Impressions said to have been the footprints of the giant Tsul`kälû’ and a deer were found on a rock which was destroyed during railroad building.

Pandora’s Gift

Published January 4, 2022 by tindertender

There is a mythic woman, much aligned throughout history, whose name means ‘all gifted.’ Pandora lives within us as our curious nature, yearning to conquer chaos, evil and darkness with the light of knowledge. She is the hopeful voice of our soul that asks the questions and, in doing so, triggers the process that brings answers. Sometimes it is through uncomfortable learning that we find our treasure. Pandora reminds us that the process of learning can take us to places that seem like the end of our world and yet, all is not lost. Even now, the light within you is stirring for new revelation, new life and new adventure.
