The way of Proclus (the Prisca Sapientia)
Preface compiled by the rector of the academy Neo-Platonic increasingly old, timid and toothless.
In the winter of 2121 I received a letter from one of the employees of the regional library that said: << We were told that between the old manuscripts of the Master if it finds one called '' The Cave of Euthanasia '', or something like that , it teaches an unknown side of wisdom, cultivate the spirit and increase the force.
It contains the secret of long life, it is speak in a unique way the theme of internal alchemy and for devotees is the only hope to read it as a beneficial rain during the drought. Some Neoplatonists have secretly made copies, but it is kept as a treasure inaccessible, and this is as foolishly hold a precious container in a box. We would like to publish it and offer it to posterity as well as to satisfy their ardent thirst for knowledge. " The employees took the letter and carried it to the Grand Master. He smiled and gave his assent. But when the disciples opened the box of old manuscripts, more than half of the '' Cave '' appeared moth-eaten. Then they completed and recopied the text,that at the end was 273 pages. The servants have bound him and sent him to you. Since I am the oldest of the disciples, I was asked to write a preface and I have not refused to do so.
Erice, September 12, 2112, from the diary of Marco:
I write this as a fact to remember what I've heard and learned today. 6 months ago it was found a very common disease nowadays. A disease that leaves no hope and ends with torment. I cried for several days, I tried to kill myself. They have stopped me. I'm just a 15 year old boy who now know the date of his death. I was taken to church,
I spoke with the pastor. I do not sleep and do not eat more. Last night I went to the cellar, are rhymed in the dark for hours, eyes wide.
My parents They took me throughone friendship, to the department of psychiatry of the Hospital, where I met a doctor unnecessary and ridiculous: he works and treats me like a job and I could feel. The doctor has to suffer with me I do not need that m'imbrogli with words but at least the prescribed drugs were nice.
Before entering in the room doctor and I was thinking at my body and I thought, my perfect body, that soon would fade eaten by worms. Taken from my sad thoughtsI suddenly sensed a presence in front of me: I looked up and saw a horrible mental patient who towered bleakly on my head. the sick man was drooling as he said, hissing: << You know who isPeisithánatos?You Know the enemy of the Sun? Find him and I'll give you my body, my flesh, my blood ... >>. At that moment a nurse grabbed my arm that disgusting sick and led him to take a medication. In departing the sick, ugly and different from me, said nurse << You know who isPeisithánatos?You Know the enemy of the Sun? Find him and I'll give you my body, my flesh, my blood ... >> at every step his voice became more and more horrible.
In the middle of the night I woke up sweaty and dirty. The night was silent and I began to shiver in the dark, from the darkness came a whisper that was barely audible. I approached the wall, in full darkness, I with trembling leaned his ear to the cold wall and I heard: << You know who isPeisithánatos?You Know the enemy of the Sun? Find him and I'll give you my body, my flesh, my blood ... >>
I searched on the net about what could be this Peisithánatos and excluding the ancient philosophers (the Cyrenaics the fourth century BC) and speeches over a dark Prisca Sapientia appeared an old, very old story of a whole mountain village cared for by an epidemic. It was about a man who took care of the mentally ill, restoring the mind of the sick, a strange man who disappeared suddenly as he had come.
An article ended with a nursery rhyme created by villagers for '' prospectors '':
<< If you want to find the old Persuader
At the source ofVal Demone (Valley of the Demon) it will have to wait.
Do not ask and you do not speak, observes only evil >>.
So today I got up, I took medicines, and slid the sheets wet with tears.
It was still dark and cold when I touched the gate. On the street just me and a stray dog. None of my relatives have been warned, no one knows my despair. At the station I was just a shadow that no one noticed, perhaps I'm already dead? Then the whistle that announces the start and off to ''a lonely impulse of delight'' (William Butler Yeats). All the time I shook hands, I held his head down, thinking of nothing, and the unknown. My thoughts were in sharp contrast to the beautiful landscapes that flowed sharp in front of me. The volcano was powerful and strong in his thunder and pastures green, black volcanic rocks plucked my mind. A long journey, as all my young life.
I walked along in perfect worlds and ageless. Mountains, gorges, following a trail found on old maps. An old man, a cowherd, showed me the way to the source. He was good and knew, knew my pain is deep He ignore me with kindness.
Long, long way, many forests: the first few trees, then more and more. I suffered fatigue, sickness was killing me and every step was a horrible agony. I was stronger in the past, each day I lose something. '' No going back '':this bloody phrase is awful and terrible !
Arrived a short distance from the source, the trees frightened me and my legs were shaking. I lost urine and stopped I sat on his heels over the ruins of a huge house in the woods, giant. Silence. How many people have loved that house? How many laughs? Where does all this? The rocks were talking about this greed of the anything.
I could not move and I stayed for hours to count the ants in front of me. Then a shadow quickly and saw two crows flying toward the woods. I could hear them in the thick, a large horror. Taken to count the ants when I noticed a long cervone snake, and put out the tongue and then slip into the thicket. he, The snake,went to the crows?
I was afraid to enter the forest because it was dangerous for me. Then he heard a talk and saw two girls raven-haired and talk your ear, They laughed at me.I was tired and I tried to reach them but lost sight the girls. I was lost and heard the two crows coming attracted but fatigue betrayed me and I'm rolled painfully down to a path. I had in front of a cave covered by one forest. The Nymphs of the Cave of thehorrendous and silent written on up it '' Church of Euthanasia ''. Step by step I walked, I counted my breath for hours before putting my left foot into the darkness of the Cave. Only in the cool darkness and when my weak eyes adjusted, I see a man sitting with his eyes to the wall (a few centimeters). It looked like a statue in the posture of the king of fish (Paripurna Matsyendrasana). In ground a sleeping bag, a disturbing human skull and three books: Konrad Lorenz '' King Solomon's Ring '', Wilhelm Reich '' The Orgasmic Function '', Mandelbrot '' The fractal objects: shape, size and case ''.
Peisithánatos: << What do you want? >>
Marco: << I'm sorry I do not want problems I missed the trail and wanted to go home ... >>.
Peisithánatos: << What do you want? >>
Marco: << A path, a path that bring me back to the ruined house where I was I sitting ... >>.
Peisithánatos: << What do you want? >>
Marco: << I do not know what to say, I sit, I feel very ill>>.
Peisithánatos: << Watch me, not distract you (or you lose yourself), and imagines he sees a quadrate where each side carries a breath: inhale one side, one hand holding the breath, exhale another side, a more fluid and again etc. Fill the belly breathing, exhaling uses the chest. Watch me closely. Now repeat these breathing patterns transcribed in these 64 hexagrams. Do everything calmly this is your intimate time >>.
Marco: << I feel better now but still feel a strong weakness >>.
Peisithánatos: << Above the table is shared by honey bees and berries: eat this sacred food>>.
Marco: << Thank you, but there is also milk. You live here? >>
Peisithánatos: << I do not live >>
Marco: << I climbed in these mountains for a reason, but I do not remember anything and think that before the disease I had an eidetic memory! >>.
Peisithánatos: << It has medicines in your pocket? It's sick ... >>
Marco: << Yes I'm dying I are sick and nobody can do anything >>.
Peisithánatos: << We all die, and as Plato said, '' If death is the total absence of feeling, as if you slept a dreamless sleep, oh, it would be a wonderful gain '' >>.
Marco: << But I want to live! I'm young I want to love, I want to know, I want to laugh!>>.
Peisithánatos: << It is not granted to you >>
Marco: << Why? >>
Peisithánatos: << This is the best question ever put in your life. Because God does not protect you? >>
Marco: << If God does not protect the good then God does not exist or is wicked! >>.
Peisithánatos: << thou do not know God, maybe>>
Marco: << I do not talk like the Jehovah's Witnesses who say that only those who follow the will of the Bible and pray to the name (Yahweh) will be resurrected in a paradise earth! >>.
Peisithánatos: << What's written in the Bible? >>
Marco: << ... I do not know but maybe I should attend, pray and believe? I am open and desperate what should I do? God will love me if I follow your book? I'm so tired ... >>.
Peisithánatos: << The Bible ... Some people try mistakes in the Bible as the scientific error in 2 Chronicles 4: 2 a calculation error is acceptable. It is not a book of geometry. Or when Joshua said to the Lord in the presence of Israel: "Sun, stand still at Gibeon, and thou, Moon, in the valley of Aijalon." (Gs10,12) It 'a miracle for the faithful that goes beyond astronomy and physics. Let's look at the steps that allow slavery Leviticus 25: 44-46 describes the steps that sex Ezekiel 23:20 We can also accept miscalculations as you well know present in several steps:
Second Book of Samuel, 8: 4: "And David took a thousand chariots and seven hundred horsemen and twenty thousand foot soldiers .."
Chronicles, 18: 4: "And David took a thousand chariots and seven thousand horsemen and twenty thousand foot soldiers ..".
Or in the Second Book of Kings, 8:26: "He Ocozia twenty-two years when he began to reign ..."
Second Book of Chronicles, 22: 2: "He Ocozia forty-two years when he began to reign ..."
And yet the Second Book of Kings, 24: 8: "Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem"
Second Chronicles 36: 9: "Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem."
Marco: << maybe errors are found only in the Old Testament ... >>
Peisithánatos: << John 5:31: "If I bear witness of myself, my testimony is not true" and then
John 8:14: "Jesus said to them: 'Though I bear witness to myself, my testimony is true.'"
The New Testament presents these errors but it is interesting that this happens in John >>.
Marco: << What are you getting? You saying that it is a book full of errors and inaccuracies that God would never do? Imperfect? >>
Peisithánatos: << Mistakes are dust in the eyes. You must go further if you seek the truth,
thou have to go over your own flesh >>
Marco: << But I, in fact, just want to do the will of my God to make him happy I do not care nothing else ... you lose blood from the ear? >>.
Peisithánatos: << Yes, this is my blood, now that I see my hàimatos between my toes I am filled with a deep ecstasy of contemplation. I could spend ages to reflect on this simple moment >>.
Marco: << You're a strange, do you mind if I take a little of your milk? >>
Peisithánatos: << '' I do not care '' >>
Marco: << Ok, thanks >>
Peisithánatos: << Whenever a person says, '' I do not care '' brings pain in the world, he kills something that does not see and does not feel >>.
Marco: << Oh, I see! Well you know happen to say things without believing it, I can take the milk now? >>.
Peisithánatos: << Take what you want but you will die in 13 days >>.
Marco: << What? I'm sorry I dropped the milk on the ground ... I did not understand what you said? I die? When? >>.
Peisithánatos: << You say the phrase ''I do not care'' but Gadamer stated '' 'Who has language, "has" the world' '. Even phrases that you think do not affect have a power, a power that is not suspected on what is unseen >>.
Marco: << I will die so early? >>
Peisithánatos: << Yes, you will die early and suffering much>>
Marco: << But why? Why? >>
Peisithánatos: << God helps some and not others >>.
Marco: << I do not have enough faith! This is to blame! I do not do the will of God! I'm damned ... >>.
Peisithánatos: << Difficult to understand the will of God. Especially in a God who is not very clear on the issue of justice, think of Job, and when the Lord said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power, but do not lay his hand on him. " Satan must ask permission from God for hurting the poor Job and kill her children. Instead Jacob a horrible man sees the Angel and attacks him for a whole night to have an advantage (with intent not spiritual) of the blessing and the morning is not punished by God but get what he wanted. Jacob the villain gets what he wants with the arrogance, the arrogance, and Jobsees his children die and suffer so unspeakable. Or when Moses said to the people: "Do not be afraid: God has come to test you" (Exodus 20:20).
You're old enough to understand that '' there is a story behind every person. There is a reason why they are what they are. They are not so just because they want it. Something in the past has made them such, and sometimes it is impossible to change them '' said Sigmund Freud.
Traumatize a person, not everyone is suited to the more mechanical pressure or rather '' what does not kill you makes you stronger '' (Nietzsche). But in reality what does not kill you kills you slowly. You'd lift a man of 50 kg weighs 150 kg only motivation? Some people lack some pieces from birth, to genetics, or because it struck in a moment of weakness and motivation is not enough. A person can be dead like me and seem alive >>.
Marco: << You are dead? >>
Peisithánatos: << A part of me died, in the past I have been interned in hospitalbut the living part succumbed to the truth. My body was abandoned and then I got a victory over death >>.
Marco: << I do not understand but can you tell me what is it that God wants from me? I read great things about her but ... >>.
Peisithánatos: << You will read in the Bible of Jephthah's daughter who was sacrificed? A human sacrifice to win over opponents in war. Obviously many religious trying to hide in a thousand ways this event but the term is Holocaust.
It 's very strange that when we speak of God repenting, it speaks of the original term' 'regret' 'but when it comes to Jephthah is interpreted to hide. Plus 23 in D :. 20-25 we talk about '' he burnt human bones above ''.
Or we have the famous passage of the prophet Elisha: '' While he [Elisha] was walking the street, left the town some boys who taunted him by saying: "Come on, peeled; Come on, bald! ". He turned around, looked at them and cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the forest, and forty of those children. "(Kings 22, 23) Kill them for what? For a trivial insult? Some translate with teenage children but does not change. And again: '' Now therefore kill every male among the children, and kill every woman who has had intercourse with a man; but all the girls in small age who have not had intercourse with men, let them in life for you '' [Numbers 31: 17-18].
This is good? They had left alive latter Midianites but the genocide was going on was to be completed.
Deuteronomy 20.16 to 17: '' But in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes, but shall utterly destroyed the Hittites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, as the Lord your God has commanded you to do '' >>.
Marco: << It was a different era, there were wars, but what do you want to prove? You Live in a cave and you challenge the Bible. You can not understand! >>.
Peisithánatos: << I do not exist and yet I speak with you because '' I care '' but I think it is right that you're dying >>.
Marco: << But as Justice? The Bible is right and you do not understand anything! God is right and you are just a fool!! >>.
Peisithánatos: << I do not know the ProphetUzzah was struck down for trying to hold the ark of God and not to drop it (2 Samuel 6: 6-7, 1 Chronicles 13: 9-10) . He wanted to do good. The good die and Jacob the villain wins.
Judges 25: '' so the man seized his concubine and brought her out to them. They took it and abused her all the night until the morning; let her go to spring. That woman at daybreak and fell down at the entrance of the man's house, from which he was his master and remained there until it was light. Her master got up in the morning, opened the door of the house and went out to go his way; here is the woman, his concubine was fallen down at the entrance of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said, "Get up, we have to leave." But there was no answer. Then her husband laid it on the donkey and set out to return to his home.
As he reached home, he took a knife, grabbed his concubine, and divided her, limb by limb, into twelve pieces; and sent her throughout the land of Israel '' >>.
Marco: << What do you mean that God is unjust? >>
Peisithánatos: << I say that there is a problem of justice: think of the snake punished because Satan had turned into a snake. The snakes were affected (as a species) and punished forever, but they had no faults. As if a man dresses like a dog, biting people and then are punished all dogs in the world except the culprit.
'' The Lord is slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, but does not leave without punishment; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. " (Numbers 14, 18)
Maybe you can redeem a son but this is contradicted by the fact that the original sin still infects the innocent. And this point is an element of multiple contradictions:
The fault lies with the descendants of the fathers (Es20,5; Dt23,3; Lv26,39; Is13,16; 14,21)
The blame does not fall on the descendants of the fathers (Ez18,20)
And we also talk about wasted lives because the rules change over time for God, as in a sadistic game:
'' While the Israelites were in the wilderness, once they found a man gathering sticks on the Sabbath. Then those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly. So they put him in custody, because it was not explicitly stated what should be done. In time, Jehovah told Moses: "Without fail the man should be put to death, being hit with stones by the entire assembly off the field." Therefore the whole assembly brought him out off the field and hit him with stones so that he died, as the Lord had commanded Moses.
But free will? Moreover Yeshu'a (Jesus) took away the rule of the Sabbath (mc, 2-27) but then these people died for no reason? And he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath so that the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath." Wasted lives? the rules that change?
The'' regrets '' of a God,a god who is often mistaken . In Genesis 6: 6 we read that "God was sorry that he had made men in the earth, and it grieved him in his heart." God is sad and wrong?
(For example, January 6: 6; Ex 32:14; 1 Samuel 15:11; Jer 15: 6; 26: 3,13,19; Gion 3:10).
"Why should I let the God who had drowned her children to tell me how to raise my children?" (Robert Green Ingersol) you know this aphorism?
But the flood produces a macroscopic number of concerns:
God in this way is seriously guilty of four injustice:
1) After the Flood was not formed a lineage "immaculate", as it was in God's purposes.
2) God - as omniscient - he had to know.
3) The global flood was a "massacre universal" produced by the same hands of God.
4) The Great Flood is nothing but disgust for the creatures of God which He had created.
Cam, son of Noah, was bad but is still saved and instead newborn babies died in the flood? If you did not see in the heart of Cam then even in that of infants? They leave no doubt also on the judgment of the soul of the children of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Remember the step " the child died?" (2 Samuel 24:19)?
Or: '' I also gave them statutes that were not good and ordinances by which they could not live; and I pronounced them unclean because of their gifts, in that they caused all their firstborn to pass through the fire so that I might make them desolate, in order that they might know that I am the LORD." '' (Ezekiel 20:25).
And we incest of Lot's daughters.I repeat, the anchor of free will is not granted: '' And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, and so are condemned all those who have not believed the truth but have consented to ' iniquities '' (2 Thessalonians - Chapter 2).
Free will is not worth then? This exceeds even the disturbing step of Sirach: '' Son, if you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for temptation '' (Sirach 2,1). But there is no limit to this descent into horror:
'' The Lord asked, 'Who will deceive Ahab moves against Ramoth Gilead and perish? Respondents in one way and another in another. Came forward a spirit - stood before the Lord - he said: I will deceive him. The Lord asked him: How? He answered: I will go and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said: I certainly deceive; you will make it; go and do so. ' Here, then, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets '' (1 Kings 22: 20-23).
Think of these two steps: '' The Lord said to him: "Who made man's mouth? Or who maketh dumb, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? '' (Exodus 4:11) and then he says and commands '' no man that has a blemish shall not approach [the temple]: a blind man, nor the lame or one who is disfigured face, deformed or has a limb, a broken foot or hand, or a hunchback or a dwarf or that hath a blemish in his eye, or has eczema or scabies or crushed testicles. '' (Leviticus 21:18). So first create them sick and then move them away from him. A mechanism ugly and perverse? But the level of rejection of the unfortunate (that God likes to create) reaches levels of pure sexual humiliation when: '' Who has been emasculated by crushing or mutilation shall not enter the assembly of the Lord. A bastard He will not enter the assembly of the Lord; none of his descendants, even to the tenth generation, shall enter the assembly of the Lord '' (Deuteronomy 23).
Once I started to count how many people kill God in the Bible and the result is 34682212. Satan, on the contrary, kills 10 people. Do you understand now? >>
Marco. << No! Do you mean to say that God is evil! >>
Peisithánatos: << You do not want the truth like all: you just want an external enemy to hate >>.
Marco: << So what? >>
Peisithánatos: << Daniel says that those who would have insight would have understood, while the wicked not (Daniel 12:10).
According to the Book of 2 Samuel 24: 1: "The anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel and incited David against them, saying:"
you do a census of Israel and Judah. "
First Book of Chronicles, 21: 1: "Now Satan stood up against Israel and caused David to take a census of the Israelites."
Satan is thus the Lord of David?
The ignorant say that the greatest trick the devil has been to make the world believe that he does not exist. But if the greatest trick is to make the world believe that that book is the word of God? >>
Marco: << Do you mean that the Old Testament is written by Satan to mislead mankind, and so God sends his son to fix everything? I always wondered why two Gods seem different ... >>
Peisithánatos: << The Gospels are very beautiful and many concepts are revolutionary for its time and very sweet, very empathetic. >> Pure.
Marco: << I begin to understand and I'm sorry, I can take that piece of cooked flour? >>.
Peisithánatos: << You will eat this food in the form of a crushed barley, baking it over human dung in front of their eyes. In this way, he said, the Lord, the children of Israel eat their bread unclean, among the nations among which scatter them >>.
Marco: << You have them cooked on your excrement! But this sucks! >>.
Peisithánatos: << I quoted the pious Ezekiel (4:14) '' Well, instead of human excrement I grant ox dung ''. Instead, what you eat now is the product of flour '' Neccio '' (dried chestnuts). As soon as you have finished eating, slowly, lying on your left side for at least 15 minutes (aids digestion) and not eat all but a piece keep it for those who will be in the future>>.
Marco: << Ah ... where were we? >>
Peisithánatos: << The Gospel has its flaws, but things are acceptable, no problems, small mistakes but there are things (like the great and important) problem of evil (theodicy):
Turning, he saw a man blind from birth, and his disciples asked him, '' Rabbi [Jesus], who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? ". Jesus answered, '' neither he nor his parents sinned, but so might be made manifest in him the works of God '' (John 9.1).
In other circumstances Jesus treats the disease as if it were the devil. In this case, the blindness is a sacred disease. This is the cause of blindness? But this miracle is reported only by John.
The illness is generated by God to show his masterpieces? But in another passage Yeshu'a (Jesus) is evil in the opposite way:
'' Now, you may know that the Son of Man has authority to forgive sins on earth, I say to you - he said to the paralytic -: 'Get up, pick up your mat and go home' your '. What stood up and immediately took his stretcher, under the eyes of all went '' (Mk 2: 1-12)
There is obviously something wrong or someone who lies.
