This New Thinking Allowed video discusses the Greek philosophical gloss in Christianity as well as making a distinction between the gospels and Paul's contribution. This discussion is complementary to what I have discussed on this thread via Fideler's work, Jesus Christ, Sun of God.

Grimes take on the Logos as Self is rather unique, and makes a lot of sense. And opens a possibility of interpreting the Gospel of John dramatically different, and Grimes discusses the impact of its mistranslations.

He discusses the pagan gods in the same manner as I do, that a respective pantheon represents different 'principles' via each member god or goddess at the higher philosophical or esoteric level. He relates the Greek gods to the Hindu. Grimes briefly discusses the relationship of Jewish kabbalah to the Greek system.

And from an outflow a mention of the Greek's use of their 'article' for our 'the' there is a very interesting brief discussion of the dynamic conceptual importance of the English definitive article "the". Mentioned is that such as the Russian consider the use of articles very subversive, seriously. I know that it is a difficult concept for such as Russians to make use of definitive 'the' and general 'a' when learning English, they frequently omit them or use the wrong one.

At ~37 minutes Grimes makes a distinction between the sacrifice(s) (Isaac and Jesus) with that of Prometheus, and says that we really need the mythos of Prometheus ... the tools to free mankind of the drudgery of ... menial labor. And then a short mention of the UBI and automation.


And the same corruption of John is found in the translations of Plato.

The following video is quite important, following on from the two above. Grimes discusses the nature of Plato's treatment of Homer, making use of elements of it, but discouraging its use in society. Seemingly odd, but Grimes explains it. Grimes also mentions affinities between Homer and Plato with the Eastern systems, and this all makes sense in my earlier question of whether Xianity is bastardized Buddhism or not.

While the discussion does not mention the typological relationship of Homer to Xianity as MacDonald does or as I have developed, one can clearly see the reason why the Homeric works were considered of 'spiritual' value albeit not organized into a formal religion as with Xianity. Grimes develops the same emphasis in Homer on the Self, and its development, as would Plato, and here that the word 'self' is identically mistranslated to 'itself' totally changing the meaning away from the reader or audience.

The discussion of Plato's ideal state is brought up and that Plato only offers it up as some heavenly notion and dismisses that it would be implemented on Earth. Next then is mentioned the Noble Lie, and it dawned on me then that Xianity was the Noble Lie (in this case inverted into the Ignoble Lie) enacted, only that it had been severely bastardized in doing so. This comes from the very misdirection from the (improvement of the)'Self', and the sole dependence on God and Jesus (and his Vicar --manifest as overt or disguised caesaro-papism).

They go on to discuss the Mysteries, such as at Eleusis, and induced Near Death Experiences. And that there is a thought that the 'active' component in the mysteries was actually something like LSD. Such benefical use is only now being reconfirmed by Science in helping ones' Self deal with impending death, PTSD and such.

Such is why Catholics and NeoCatholics see hallucinogens as such an existential threat to their mind slavery matrix, and why these must remain illegal to use. As such, their symbol should be the ouroborass, a man with his head up his ass. o_O And maybe this was why Jesus was depicted as a man with a donkey head.

The following is a presentation by the Binary Research Institute on what causes the precession of the equinoxes and related. I am posting it on this thread because it touches on Mithraism. Similarly, before too long I will post some of Randall Carlson's lectures on what the Mysteries were all about, and how they relate to the precessional Great Year.

The BRI posits the notion that precession is actually caused by the existence of a binary star to our Sun, likely a red dwarf -- because we can't see it. And that the precessional duration is really closer to 24,000 total than the 25,920 years usually claimed. They claim that there is evidence that the orbital speed changes with the respective proximity to the binary twin within each cycle. This last is of interest to me because of the 24 millennial elders sitting around God, the Sun, in the Book of Revelation.

This post is not what I had teased in the prior post, about the mysteries, but definitely is related, deriving from the esoteric lineage of the earlier mysteries into the last centuries.

The below is Orpheus / Bacchus nailed to a cross ... or is it an anchor? Note also the position of the crescent Moon and the 7 stars. This image was on the cover or Freke and Gandy's The Jesus Mysteries, and is displayed at 13 minutes into the second of Randall Carlson's presentations discussing and building on the book The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye by Weidner and Bridges. Both books should be in everyones' libraries.

I have briefly mentioned the Hendaye book on other threads: https://postflaviana.org/community/index.php?search/4108/&q=Hendaye&c[users]=Richard+Stanley&o=date

I don't remember whether this was in the Hendaye book or not, but Carlson develops an esoteric meaning for the word 'apocalypse' which is usually rendered as 'revelation'. Instead, Carlson delivers epoch-ellipse, which makes sense within this tableau.


Note in the below the 'alchemical 'A' (he says the name but does not spell it), of which can be seen in such early depictions of the Alpha and Omega. Also, that the wreath forms a Vesica Piscis bound by two X's. In the context of the discussion, we can see the two arcs representing the 'crossing' of two orbits in their intersecting planes.

Note the 'A' in the upper left, and that it is different from the 'A's in the words inside the table:
