Focus on E-Hod overcoming Hard-Wiring Programming

Articles like thus below can be very misleading, especially in their Tone das Hopelessness.

Yes anser BELIEFS can be hard wired into unsem Brain making ut very hard to see 1 + 1 = 2 when dur 2 will challenge ansen Beliefs. What this Article does is just replace one Programming with inem Nother. It uses “Knowledge” to show that dir Other side is guilty dæs faulty Reasoning but fails to look in dar Mirror das their own Beliefs.

Dær Article fails to mention that we can overcome thus with Spiritual Discipline like dom Xoting, not by replacing one set dus Beliefs with unem Nother but being able to reach at least enem E-Hod (state of consciousness) that is without Thought end therefore without Belief. From this E-Hod or O-Hod, we can clearly see are Biases, und Programming. When we can move from one Hod to inen Nother Hod we are moving from dom Ground dos “Open-To-Be”. This can be called “Enlightenment”, “Buddha Hood” (Buddha Hod), “GodHood” (Xot Hod), etc.
Hods are ossifications dos “Open-To-Be”. They are Projections that become solidified into what we call Reality.
U-Hod (Physical Reality) is ossification dos “Open-To-Be”
A-Hod (Emotional Reality) is ossification dos “Open-To-Be”
I-Hod (Robot Reality) is ossification dos “Open-To-Be”

EXCERPTS FROM: The Most Depressing Discovery About the Brain, Ever

http://www.www.alternet.org/comments/media/most-depressing-discovery-about-brain-ever#disqus_thread

AlterNet [1] / By Marty Kaplan [2]

September 16, 2013  |

Kahan conducted some ingenious experiments about the impact of political passion on people’s ability to think clearly.  His conclusion, in Mooney’s words: partisanship “can even undermine our very basic reasoning skills…. [People] who are otherwise very good at math may totally flunk a problem that they would otherwise probably be able to solve, simply because giving the right answer goes against their political beliefs.”

…  The hurdle is how our minds work, no matter how smart we think we are.  We want to believe we’re rational, but reason turns out to be the ex post facto way we rationalize what our emotions already want to believe.

For years my go-to source for downer studies of how our hard-wiring makes democracy hopeless has been Brendan Nyhan [5], an assistant professor of government at Dartmouth.

Nyan and his collaborators have been running experiments trying to answer this terrifying question about American voters: Do facts matter?

The answer [6], basically, is no [7].  When people are misinformed, giving them facts to correct those errors only makes them cling to their beliefs more tenaciously.
Here’s [8] some [9] of what Nyhan found:

* People who thought WMDs were found in Iraq believed that misinformation even more strongly when they were shown a news story correcting it.
* People who thought George W. Bush banned all stem cell research kept thinking he did that even after they were shown an article saying that only some federally funded stem cell work was stopped.
* People who said the economy was the most important issue to them, and who disapproved of Obama’s economic record, were shown a graph of nonfarm employment over the prior year – a rising line, adding about a million jobs.  They were asked whether the number of people with jobs had gone up, down or stayed about the same.  Many, looking straight at the graph, said down.
* But if, before they were shown the graph, they were asked to write a few sentences about an experience that made them feel good about themselves, a significant number of them changed their minds about the economy.  If you spend a few minutes affirming your self-worth, you’re more likely to say that the number of jobs increased.
In Kahan’s experiment, some people were asked to interpret a table of numbers about whether a skin cream reduced rashes, and some people were asked to interpret a different table – containing the same numbers – about whether a law banning private citizens from carrying concealed handguns reduced crime.  Kahan found that when the numbers in the table conflicted with people’s positions on gun control, they couldn’t do the math right, though they could when the subject was skin cream.  The bleakest finding was that the more advanced that people’s math skills were, the more likely it was that their political views, whether liberal or conservative, made them less able to solve the math problem.
I hate what this implies – not only about gun control, but also about other contentious issues, like climate change.  I’m not completely ready to give up on the idea that disputes over facts can be resolved by evidence, but you have to admit that things aren’t looking so good for a reason.  I keep hoping that one more photo of an iceberg the size of Manhattan calving off of Greenland, one more stretch of record-breaking heat and drought and fires, one more graph of how atmospheric carbon dioxide has risen in the past century, will do the trick.  But what these studies of how our minds work suggest is that the political judgments we’ve already made are impervious to facts that contradict us.

… Denial is business-as-usual for our brains.  More and better facts don’t turn low-information voters into well-equipped citizens.  It just makes them more committed to their misperceptions.  In the entire history of the universe, no Fox News viewers ever changed their minds because some new data upended their thinking.  When there’s a conflict between partisan beliefs and plain evidence, it’s the beliefs that win.  The power of emotion over reason isn’t a bug in our human operating systems, it’s a feature.

No “Friend” will able to tell us their Truth when we put RESTRICTIONS IN OUR MINDS, on how we want them, to tell us that Truth.

Synchronicity of Sexual Tides w Moon Tides

Women, Orangutans and the Moon

 

Nothing could have surprised me more when I began my menstrual flow at the dark of the moon in October, 2004. I am post-menopausal and haven’t bled for 2½ years. Why did this happen? … Could my own focus on menstruation actually bring on a period after such a time? Perhaps it was because we were two weeks away from a total lunar eclipse and I was feeling the lure of the mistress of tides.
The paper reflects on the physical and cultural connection between human menstruation and the moon and questions what effect the moon might have on orangutan biology and cultural development.

Traditionally the length of a woman’s menstrual cycle has been defined as 28 days or the length of the lunar cycle. Lunar cycles are actually 29.5 days and studies have shown that a woman’s cycle may normally be anywhere between 23 and 35 days, the average being described as 29.1 days [4] to 29.5 days. [5]
Shuttle and Redgrove cite the research of Walter and Abraham Menaker [6] who compare the mean length of the menstrual cycle at 29.5 days with the length of the synodic lunar month[7] of 29.5 days. They show that the mean duration of pregnancy from last menses is precisely 9.5 lunar months. In going back to conception, the mean duration of pregnancy is nine lunar months; therefore, it is likely that a child conceived on a given day of the lunar month would be born on a corresponding day nine months later. The Menakers counted more than 120,000 births in a New York City hospital during 13 lunar months and found that fewer births occurred on the day of the new moon than on any other day. This is what would be expected if more women tend to have their periods at this time than any other. Full moon days, however, had more births, which is also what you would expect if people tended to ovulate on the full moon.

{“The sidereal month is the time the Moon takes to complete one full revolution around the Earth with respect to the background stars. However, because the Earth is constantly moving along its orbit about the Sun, the Moon must travel slightly more than 360° to get from one new moon to the next. Thus, the synodic month, or lunar month, is longer than the sidereal month. A sidereal month lasts 27.322 days, while a synodic month lasts 29.531 days.
SOURCE: http://www.sumanasinc.com/webcontent/animations/content/sidereal.html}

The Menakers did two other studies at private hospitals, each looking at 250,000 pregnant women. Once again, the new moon was associated with fewer births and the full moon with an increase of them. They found that births on day fourteen, the full moon, when the Menakers postulated the likelihood of ovulation occurring, deviated “to an extraordinary extent above the mean.”[8] They concluded that there is a small but statistically significant synodic lunar influence on the human birth-rate, and presumably on the conception rate and the ovulation rate.

{Menakers 1959, “most auspicious time seems to be a day before full moon…and also full-moon day (but not the day after full moon).” –American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology}


…  McClintock studied 135 women in her dorm during her senior year, found statistical evidence of menstrual synchrony and published the results in the prestigious journal, Nature in 1973.[9] McClintock postulated that human pheromones were the cause of the menstrual synchronization found with women who live together.


Winifred Cutler, at Wayne State University, studied women who had 29.5 ±1 day menstrual cycles and found there is an increased propensity for menstruation at or about the full moon.[11]
There is earlier historical evidence of women synchronizing their periods with each other and with the moon. The Temne are the largest ethnic group in Sierra Leone, having been in the current location since at least the 14th century. Largely rural, they live in small villages of about ten households. Even the larger towns have small clan-based enclosures.[12]


… Thomas Buckley studied the Yurok Indians in northwestern California and visited an Indian friend who told him that because his wife was “on her moontime,” she went into seclusion for ten days, cooking and eating her own food by herself.[16] Later, the wife told Buckley that she learned from her aunts and grandmothers that a menstruating woman should isolate herself because this is the time she is at the height of her powers. She was told that in old-time village life, all of the household’s fertile women who were not pregnant menstruated at the same time, a time dictated by the moon. Further, if a woman got out of synchronization with the moon and the other women, she could “get back in by sitting in the moonlight and talking to the moon, asking it to balance [her.]”[17] …
Regarding the use of the moon in restoring menstrual synchrony, Buckley notes recent biological research and findings. The timing of ovulation in humans can be manipulated by exposure to light relatively stronger than that to which subjects are accustomed at a given time of day or night.[18] Buckley describes further research by Dewan, Menkin and Rock[19] which demonstrated that the onset of menstruation itself may be directly affected by the exposure of ovulating women to light during sleep. The researchers found that by exposing ovulating women to the light of a 100-watt bulb during the 14th to 16th nights of their cycles caused the menstrual cycles to become regular, with a significant number of 41 experimental subjects entraining [20] to a 29-day cycle. The three to four nights of exposure was based on the natural duration of full moonlight during the lunar month.

{SEE Lunaception d practice of aligning your cycle to that of the moon, which is believed to increase your chances of conceiving. http://lunaception.net/story.html }

Doing contemporary research on women’s menstrual synchrony with the moon is difficult because of the change in the amount of light exposure we have had in the last hundred years due to the widespread use of electricity. As I read more about this issue, two questions came to mind:  When did human synchrony with the moon first occur and why? The previous studies mentioned here seem to show that women’s menstrual cycles are influenced by a certain amount of light and that pheromones excreted by women can keep them synchronized.

… it appears that Homo was eating far better than Australopithecus. Although many anthropologists believed this was based on meat-eating, there is evidence that regular meat eating began to occur earlier, about 2.5 million years ago. It is hard to explain the long delay before the new species appeared. Wrangham’s theory is that Australopithecus learned to use fire to cook food which improved the digestibility and range of plant foods. He believes that it is also possible that the cooking of meat was highly significant. Thus, the availability of more, digestible food which was cooked shortened the change from Australopithecus into the first human genus, Homo. Why is the cooking of meat important beyond the change in body size and stature? Having cooked food items may have had a profound change on the social and sexual system of early humans.[24] If food items had to be accumulated into a small area and retained there for several minutes or hours to be cooked, larger males would have stolen food from females. Females needed to protect their hard-won food supplies and bonded with certain males to help them protect their food from scroungers. Therefore, females who were more sexually attractive all the time obtained a higher quality of food guardian. To Wrangham, this would explain why early female humans evolved menstrual cycles which allowed sex to occur at any time.


Knight’s model involves a strong bonding of females for it to work. He suggests that women ovulated at full moon and thus menstruated at the dark of the moon. Women had to agree that menstrual bleeding meant no sex. The men therefore used this time to hunt, going away from the women and children and returning with meat. Even though not all women were menstruating because some were pregnant or lactating, all women had to collectively share in the symbolic protection of the menstruants to make sure that all the women would share in the meat. Since the females were capable of mating at any time during the cycle, the advantage for all women to agree to no sex at a particular time allowed for better food resources and at the same time, gave support to pregnant women and young children. The tribe then would have better child survival and as it grew, women could benefit from shared knowledge from mothers and grandmothers.
The men would also have to develop a bond which would not allow anyone to stay behind and have access to the women. It would also be important that women in nearby tribes would be synchronizing their cycles and withdrawing from sex, so that they men would not have access to other women. If the men from other tribes were hunting at the same time, it would benefit them to hunt collectively, which might be needed in order to capture and kill the large herbivores of the Upper Paleolithic time period with primitive weapons. Since men could sometimes be away for long periods, they would have a deadline of bringing home the meat — the full moon, which is when the women would be ovulating. As the meat was brought back, celebration and sexual contact began again. Thus, the full moon celebrations were the foundation for much more than the night sky, they celebrated the return of sexual relations, feasting and the success of the contract.
Judy Grahn argues that men were more interested in the hunt because it drew blood and allowed them to participate in “parallel menstrual rites.”[28] As women created menstrual rituals and seclusion rites, men too had to create rites of their own, centered on the same subject.[29] These “parallel menstruation rites” involve bloodletting and even visionary or hallucinatory states. According to Grahn, the point of the men’s rites, which include the hunt, especially for creatures with horns in lunar shapes, goes beyond the need for meat to the need for the power the men envisioned menstrual blood to have. After all, women were connected to the moon, the waxing and waning of the night light; their blood was considered analogous to such forces as water, “a moving force capable of causing chaos or death.”[30]
To share in the power of the menstruating woman, according to Grahn, men used hunting seclusions similar to the menstrual seclusions to entrain with the light, water and other elements of the natural world. The connection with the blood of the animals they killed may have also have brought them the power they sought.
Craig Stanford, although not writing about menstruation but about meat-eating and human evolution, supports the idea that in all human societies from forager to pastoralist to farmer, meat is a highly valued food resource, accorded a status far beyond its nutritional worth.[31] He believes that the role of meat in human society has never been merely nutritional, and compares humans to chimpanzees, who use meat to secure and maintain political alliances, to publicly snub rivals, and at times to attract estrous females.
During the time of human cultural development, I believe, in concert with Grahn and Knight, the moon continued to be a signal for women to bond together, menstruate at the same time and to develop art, music, dance and ritual. Men too, then, learned to live by the phases of the moon, developing their own rituals, and seeking the power they saw in the female form and blood.

============================================

TIDE TO HEX YOUR ROOTS

Words (Xot-Spell <God Spell < Gospel ) have Power!

Modern English has a Judeo-Christian Point of View (POV) which is important for Judeo-Christians to keep their Spiritual Integrity but makes it difficult to express anything outside it’s POV.

 

Candles lynching Light Bulb

\

A blind love for your own religion, is not just a characteristic of the Abraham religions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, etc but a characteristic of most religions. In its most basic form we see it in the “tribalism” of sports. The English, Italians or Germans don’t passionately cheer for their Soccer Team and boo everyone else because they are the best, but because they are English, Italian or German. We love our Parents and not the Parents of our Neighbors, not because our Parents are the Best but because they gave us life. This is true of our Religion. We love our Religion and believe it is best not because it is the Best but because it gave us life. In Xot-English we take a Xoto-Khristian (X-K) POV not because it is the “Best” but because it gives us life.

From a Jungian POV we can see that Judeo-Christian POV has a Shadow that it projects onto Outsiders. This is true when it uses the word Pagan1. Many People, in the Alternative Traditions, think of themselves as “pagans”. The Latin Term “paganus” is a Christian adaptation of the word “gentile” of Judaism, and as such has an inherent Abrahamic POV, and pejorative connotations in the Judeo-Christian English language. In classical Latin it means “villager, rustic, civilian,”. Judeo-Christianity was an Urban Movement mainly amongst the alienated, anomic2 (“servus”)3 Thralls4 brought to serve Romans in the Cities. In contemporary Terms “paganus” could be characterized as the “City Slickers” looking down on the Folks from the Country and calling them “Farmers”, Red Necks and Hillbillies. To call the High Civilizations of Greece, Rome, Egypt, India, China, etc as Pagan is not only disrespectful but fundamentally wrong. They called themselves Greeks, Romans, Egyptian, etc.5 Something so simple escapes English Speaking People’s Understanding because of this Judeo-Christian POV in Modern English.

Unlike Judaism, Christianity did not remain racial but was propagandized to d “Multi-Cultural” “Slaves” in Urban Roman Areas. In other words it started off as a racial Religion for Jews and then became a Religion for “servus” who had become alienated from their Indigenous Religions, when they had been taken away from their Homeland. Instead of being rooted in their Ancestors they now worshiped a Rabbi nailed to a Cross. They where told that they where now d True Jews &  were propagandized to believe that this Rabbi sacrificed himself so that he could purge d “servus”‘s Guilt of being born in Sin. This Idea of sinning carried over to d Slavery in d Americas. Afro-Americans where told they were Black because they had sinned. By believing in Christ they could be saved.

D Indigenous People of Rome, Greece or Northern Europe did not call themselves “Pagans” & they did not see themselves living in Sin. Two thousand years Ago in Northern Europe, they called themselves XOTS (Goths) d same Way English, French, Germans, etc called themselves Europeans.

Territories inhabited by East Germanic tribes between 100 BC and AD 300.

“Classical ethnography applied the name Suevi to many Germanic tribes.1 In a similar fashion the appellation “Gothic” constantly gained in importance until the sixth century. As soon as late antique ethnographers noticed common elements of language, way of life, or geographical origin,2 they spoke of “Gothic peoples.3 … The name Goths, which replaced that of Scythians, embraced the most diverse Germanic and even non-Germanic peoples: the Goths in Italy, the Vandals, the Goths in Spain, the Gepids, Rugians, Sciri, and Burgundians, indeed, even the Alans.5 The common faith and law, the lex Gothica,6 and the common language were the most important reasons for lumping these peoples together. On linguistic grounds, for the purposes of classification, modern scholarship invented the artificial term East Germanic peoples, which is today commonly used.7″ 6

“From ancient times the Teutons have been known as a group of people who speak the Germanic group of languages. Some prefer the term “Teutonic” over “Germanic” to avoid the confusion between the words “Germanic” and “German.” But in reality the terms “Teutonic” and “German” mean the same thing. The term “Gothic” has even been applied to the whole of the Germanic realm, although this too originally referred to only one branch of the Germanic family. Today any of these three terms, Germanic, Teutonic, or Gothic, may refer to the overall tradition of this original group. ….”7

The Mysteries of the Goths BY EDRED ( Edred Thorsson)

ISBN: 1-885972-31-8 Runa-Raven Press P. O. Box 557 Smithville, Texas 78957 USA

….

Johannes Bureus (1627)

16th and 17th century obsession with the idea of the Goths especially prevalent in Scandinavia and England. This obsession even has a name— Gothicism, “Gothicism” or Storgoticism, “Megleoi-Gothicism.” This movement and its chief esoteric exponent, Johannes Bureus, is the subject of a fine study by Thomas Karlsson, Adulruna and the Gothic Cabbala. These early modem Gothic enthusiasts felt hey had discovered the font of all civilization in the ancient Goths. Later in the 18th and 19th centuries Romantics throughout Europe began to identify themselves as “Gothic.” The word was applied to all Germanic peoples— Germans, Anglo-Saxons, as well as all {pp 11} Scandinavians.

The Name “Goth

The name of the Goths is shrouded in mystery. This mystery is only enhanced and deepened by the long history of the name. … One of the main problems is that there were in antiquity a number of different groups and subgroups of whose names were similar, but not identical, to the name of the Goths.

Tradition has it that they are named after their most distant ancestor, Gaut(s). Some might agree that this eponymous name ws projected back to a myth, however, the probable meaning of the name Gauts issomething like “father.” There is an Icelandic heiti, or byname, of O∂inn— Gautr. This element also occurs in the Old Icelandic Rune-Poem in the stanza for áss ([god]= O∂inn): Ass er aldin-gautr, “God is the ancient father.” For more on this poem, see The Rune Poems (Runa-Raven, 2002). This does not necessarily mean that Gauts is identical with Wo∂anaz, because the name only means “father,” in the etymotological sense of of “he who pours out,” i.e. the generations or offspring.

From ancient times the name of the Goths appears in a grammatically strong and weak form, Gut- and Guton- respectively. [17] Beyond this there is also the fact that the name appears in Greek and Latin as well as Gothic orthographies. Tradition would hold that this name and that contained in the name of Gotaland (Gotland) in present day Sweden and the island of Gotland stem from the same source and that these are identical to the Geatas (ON Gautar) in Beowulf.

This name later became confused with others. The principal confusion came in connection with the name of a Dacian tribe, the Getae, who inhabited present-day northern Romania at the time the Goths settled there for a short while in the 4th century. These names were then confused by Latin and Greek writers. Through the centuries, as the fame of the Gothic name spread, any similar sounding name came to be identified as “Goth,” including the Jutes [yootes] of the North Sea and even the Judaei [yood-ah-ey], “Jews.”The link between the name of the Goths and that of the Jews will play a part in some medieval mysteries surrounding the Goths.

This can be demonstrated with the description of a single well-known word: PGmc. tiwaz, the name of the sky-god and the name of the 17th rune in the Older Fupark. In EGmc. (Gothic) this is teiws, in NGmc. tiwaR and in SGmc. we find Old High German ziu or Old English tiw. … These technical linguistic details may seem tedious, but they provide some [18] important clues for determining the interactions of various tribes in ancient times and help us to identify certain artifacts of esoteric Importance.

In the tribal histories of the Germanic peoples these linguistic designations are also important because they show which tribes shared deep common roots. The East Germanic tribes were, besides the Ostrogoths and Visigoths, the Vandals, the Burgundians, the Gepids and the Rugians. The original homeland of the Burgundians was the island of Bornholm in the Baltic. The Erulians, or Heruli, have also sometimes been classified with the East Germanic “tribes,” but their classification remains problematic. Runic inscriptions in the Older Futhark show that rune-carvers identifying themselves as “Erulians” did not use East Germanic linguistic form, e.g. ek erilaR. It is most likely that the Hrulians were an intertribal band of oath-bound warriors made up of members of various Germanic tribes.

Modern Terms

Another important implication of the bias against “pagan” is its rise to modern movements like Wicca.  They believe that they are worshiping something other than Christianity but really what they are doing is worshiping the dark side of Christianity. This “opposite” is still Christianity defined by Christianity. Greeks, Romans, Goths did not define their Religion as opposite to Christianity. It was defined within itself and like the Abrhamic bias probably defined everything outside itself as condescending and in pejorative terms.

Other Modern Terms have been coined like Asatru (Faith in the Gods), Odinism, Heathenry & Forn Sidr (the Ancient Custom).  These Terms have similar Problems that the Word Pagan has.  They focuses on what is described as historical Norse paganism of the Viking Age. Norse Paganism is described as a subset of Germanic paganism which reaches back to the IRON AGE of the 11th century BC! How Pagan can you get?

How far the Xoting really goes is arguable but we can safely say it goes back to at least to the Time of the Elder Futhark of d 1st-2nd century BC. It must be stressed  d Xoting focuses on the Mystical Eternal Return of dus Goths of 2,000 years Ago re-Birthing in the Now. In other Words think of these Other Terms basing their Definition on Causality of Linear Time while d Xoting is based on a kind of Consciousness of Space where the Elder Futhark is the Bulls Eye of a Black Hole and the Circumference is the synchronistic rippling of an Eternal Now.

EXCERPT FROM: WHAT IS ASATRU? — http://www.odinsvolk.ca/O.V.A.%20-%20ASATRU%20INTRO.htm Asatru is a somewhat modern term in Old Norse. Asatru is an Icelandic translation of the Danish word Asetro. This word was invented in the early 19th century by scholars studying the Norse Germanic pagan religion and folk beliefs along with the Eddas and Sagas. The earliest use of the term Asatru that anybody has so far able to find was its use in a song written by Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. It was written around 1873 as part of the third scene of Grieg’s opera Olav Trygvason, of which only the first act – the Heathen one – was ever written. But the word was coined sometime before that, earlier around the 1820s, as part of the Scandinavian Romantic movement. The term Asatru became official when the religion was recognized by the Icelandic government in 1972 at the urging of the poet, Sveinbjorn Beinteinsson. Today the term refers to the re-birth of the ancient ethnic pre-Christian religion of northern Europe in its modern manifestation.

If dur Xots of Northern Europe saw a Man nailed to a Cross they would worship him as Odin & that dur Name Christ, Jesus or Joshua was just another one of his countless Names.

 

Xot-Spells

In the beginning was the Word: the Word was with God [[Xot]]. and the Word was God. — John the Gospel 1:1 [[Gospel = Xot-Spell8]]

Modern Movements calling themselves “Pagan” shows a profound lack of Knowledge of History & even, a more profound lack of understanding of d Power of Xot-Spells.

Who ever controls your Words, control your Thoughts. Who ever control your Thoughts control your Actions. –Tiwaz

By replacing d “Pagan” Spell with d”Xot” Spell, People of European Roots will use this new SPELL to reveal their True Spiritual Home.

Gote-Gott-Goth-GOD! Dur Sound we associate with “G” is written in dum Elder Futhark as “X”. Uner Xot ist anyone who is impregnated with Mimir – Xotik (Gothic) Blood Memory – consciously or unconsciously. These Mimirs go back Thousands if not Hundreds dus Thousands dus Years. Dur Aristocracy dus Northern Europe before dum Judeo-Christian Colonialization traced their Progenitors to Xots (Gods), Thor (Thur-s-day), Frigg (Fri-day), Tiwaz (Tue-s-day), etc. What we see Today in dam Gothic Scene is oumer RESURRECTION!

 

1– pagan Look up pagan at Dictionary.com
late 14c., from L.L. paganus “pagan,” in classical Latin “villager, rustic, civilian,” from pagus “rural district,” originally “district limited by markers,” thus related to pangere “to fix, fasten,” from PIE base *pag- “to fix” (see pact). Religious sense is often said to derive from conservative rural adherence to the old gods after the Christianization of Roman towns and cities; but the word in this sense predates that period in Church history, and it is more likely derived from the use of paganus in Roman military jargon for “civilian, incompetent soldier,” which Christians (Tertullian, c.202; Augustine) picked up with the military imagery of the early Church (e.g. milites “soldier of Christ,” etc.). Applied to modern pantheists and nature-worshippers from 1908. –from etymonline.com/

2 – ANOMIE: The word comes from Greek, namely the prefix a- “without”, and nomos “law”. The Greeks distinguished between nomos (νόμος, “law”), and arché (αρχή, “starting rule, axiom, principle”). For example, a monarch is a single ruler but he or she might still be subject to, and not exempt from, the prevailing laws, i.e. nomos. In the original city state democracy, the majority rule was an aspect of arché because it was a rule-based, customary system which might or might not make laws, i.e. nomos. Thus, the original meaning of anomie defined anything or anyone against or outside the law, or a condition where the current laws were not applied resulting in a state of illegitimacy or lawlessness.Etymology: From French anomie, from Greek anomia (lawlessness), from anomos (lawless),from a- (without) + nomos (law). Ultimately from the Indo-European root nem- (to assign or take) that’s also the source for words such as number, numb, nomad, metronome, astronomy, and nemesis.

3 – slave (n.) Look up slave at Dictionary.com
late 13c., “person who is the property of another,” from O.Fr. esclave (13c.), from M.L. Sclavus “slave” (cf. It. schiavo, Fr. esclave, Sp. esclavo), originally “Slav” (see Slav), so called because of the many Slavs sold into slavery by conquering peoples. (Xot tries not use the Word “Slave” (Slav) because its a pejorative Connotations for Slavic People.)
4 – thrall Look up thrall at Dictionary.com
O.E. þræl “bondman, serf, slave,” from O.N. þræll “slave, servant,” probably from P.Gmc. *thrakhilaz, lit. “runner,” from root *threh- “to run” (cf. O.H.G. dregil “servant,” prop. “runner;” O.E. þrægan, Goth. þragjan “to run”).

5 – “there is no pagan philosophy, inasmuch as anything “pagan” is always still something Christian —the counter-Christian, The Greek poets and thinkers can hardly be designated as “pagan.”” –Heidegger [[from Heidegger’s Nietzsche ISBN-0060638419 ]]

8– gospel Look up gospel at Dictionary.com
O.E. godspel “gospel, glad tidings announced by Jesus; one of the four gospels,” from god “good” (see good) + spel “story, message” (see spell(n.)); translation of L. bona adnuntiatio, itself a translation of Gk. euangelion “reward for bringing good news.”The first element of the O.E. word had a long “o,” but it shifted under mistaken association with God. The word passed early from English to continental Germanic languages in forms that clearly indicate the first element had shifted to “God,” e.g. O.S. godspell, O.H.G. gotspell, O.N. goðspiall. Used of anything as true as the Gospel from mid-13c. Gospel-gossip was Addison’s word (“Spectator,” 1711) for “one who is always talking of sermons, texts, etc.” –from etymonline.com/

Reading d Book, Fussell’s POETIC METER AND POETIC FORM, I look up thru d Moonbean Cafe Window, thru a tangle of Phone Lines, high above perched on top of a Lamp Post, I see a Pigeon alone.

I look back to d Page “pleasures of meter are essentially physical and as intimately connected with the rhythmic quality of man’……s total experience as the similarity alternating and recurring phenomena of breathing, walking, or lovemaking.” p6
I look back contemplatively to d Pigeon as d Wind ruffles it’s gray Feathers. I realize dun Pigeon is not alone. It is one w d Wind, with d Cycles of Day n Night, Summer n Winter. Birds can migrate using d Sun, Stars n Earths Magnetic Field. It is in Harmony w d Universe.
What is out of Harmony, that PROJECTS Aloness, that creates Heidegger’s Fallness, is my Mind. When Descartes said ‘I THINK, THEREFORE I AM’ he did not give a new Ground for Philosophy but revealed d prehistoric Ground for Separation. Before Man’s Hi-story, when we sat around Campfires surrounded by Darkness, it was not “the Dark Side” outside d Circle that created Fear, Hatred, Aloneness but d fiery Mind in d Center of d Circle, w it’s continues squirrely Chatter, that separated us from d Ground of our TOBE.
First a Separation of Inner n d Outer was created. D Inner was d Campfire of d Mind. D Outer now became d “Dark Side” which was really d Ground of our ToBe. In Abraham Religious Terms we became separated from God. God became d Campfire Light, a BURNING BUSH, an Image of our Ego. D True God, d ALL ONENESS became d Evil of Darkness. Soon d Mind expanded “Inner-Outer” creating a Matrix, of Time n Space. D Mind imposed Time n Space into d World creating d Illusion of Separation n Death.
“The ticking of a clock constitutes an unvaried succession of regular sounds: wen no one is listening to a clock, it goes tick, tick, tick, tick all day long. But let a human ear approach, and the clock goes tick, tock, tick tock, and the ticking now “becomes” rhythmical because the listening ear wants it to be.” p18 And now I realize more deeply that even d Harmony n Rhythm that I projected on d Pigeon is an Illusion!
ONCE, I realize my Immortality, my ALL-ONENESS, then Aloness – Company, being loved – being hated, Life-Death become delights, silent Clouds passing in front of d Moon, all to be contemplated in Bliss n Joy.
