But it is in a different language. Part 3 of this book is described as the apex of a rising three-level spiral; I start there. A hard-earned promotion at work only means a life well lived if one has adopted the myth that status, power and wealth accumulation are the purpose of life. If you don't question the laws of physics, then I really can't think why. Each of its three parts is like a turn of a spiral, exploring recurring ideas through the prisms of religious myth, truth and belief, respectively. So basically, as a reader, you are getting new ideas that tie in ancient ideas with new science. As I've already intimated, that really surprises me.
With each turn, the book seeks to convey a more nuanced and complete understanding of the many facets of transcendence. Each of its three parts is like a turn of a spiral, exploring recurring ideas through the prisms of religious myth, truth and belief, respectively. Admittedly some of his ideas are still beyond my grasp, but he has a way with words and allegory that brought many esoteric concepts within my reach. A life lived so as to bring that idea into reality—thus turning the acorn into the oak—is a life of purpose and timeless meaning. It's physically impossible to the point of being ludicrous. That's a case where empiricism is absolutely and incontrovertibly correct, at least from our perspective and using our means of perception. The coup de grace is that he has come up with a new mythological expression.
I thus propose that, if a religious myth resonates deeply with your intuitions, you should emotionally - though not intelectually - take it onboard as if it were literally true. We can no longer take myths seriously because, after all, they are only myths. Concepts I have struggled with for years came to life for me. Otherwise, I might have suggested another. The empirical evidence for celestial Birkeland currents which are scalable is quite convincing, and the patterns they can form are suggestive of a common origin for symbols produced by many ancient cultures all over the world. Subsequently, they became mythologised into various narratives about wars amongst the gods, etc.
Its outputs are the corresponding thoughts and feelings evoked within. Note: I enjoy these topics and ideas and therefore very open to them.

Bergson described it Matter and Memory, 1896.
Once it ends, one quickly falls victim again to the irresistible pull of ordinary life and its claustrophobic ethos. Gravity is a different kettle of fish. Its appeal throughout the ages arises from the fact that religious myths do convey truth, but truth that is neither literal nor merely allegorical. Where do we come from? Our disgust toward acts of wickedness is entirely dependent on our respective myths of morality. Along comes Bernardo Kastrup to interpret these stories from the perspective of a man of 21st Century reason to tell us they are more than allegory. Sorry for ranting, but I feel strongly about this.
So to deliberately do away with all interpretations, and all codes, is at best a very tough call indeed. We are after the understanding, wisdom, and gnosis that we all are the universe becoming self-aware. The myth implies a way to translate pure form into meaning. This is one of those books. My intent is to help you see beyond the dull, superficial cultural dialogue reigning in society today. Ptolemaic astronomy was, within certain limits, both accurate and consistent. If and when I come up with something, I will post it to your forum.
The three themes, myth, truth and belief, flow into and interpenetrate each other throughout the book. This book is a three-part journey into the rabbit hole we call the nature of reality. Our despair propels our soul—our deepest drives and intuitions—toward some form of transcendence. The planetary positions and orbits claimed in this documentary are ludicrous from a gravitational perspective and the perspective of Newton's laws of motion. Die Vögel folgen ihm auf eine beschwerliche Reise und müssen die Sieben Täler durchfliegen und Stürmen, Regengüssen, Eis und glühender Hitze trotzen. Einstein's relativity doesn't contradict Newtonian gravity within the range in which the latter is accurate, otherwise it would contradict observation. Myth is disguised in subtle forms.
Each of its three parts is like a turn of a spiral, exploring recurring ideas through the prisms of religious myth, truth and belief, respectively. Or succumb to the facile New Age dismissal of rationalism as merely ego. The cup and spoon are right where they say they are - within the external field. The skewed assumptions that sustain this aberration and the reasons why they are mistaken will be addressed in the next chapters. I wanted to tell him that years ago. So hats off to you for being able to engender such awesome feelings from words alone. The death of a loved one is only a permanent loss under the myth of materialism.
