EUROPEANS’ SUPERNATURAL REALM FORMERS
The Ice Age’s (Glacial or Pleistocene Period) great ice sheets, up to a mile thick, covered 8,000,000 square miles of the earth’s surface—but not in sunny Africa when the first humans appeared there in 200,000 BC. Upon Europeans’ earth arrival in 45,000 BC, not much more than such large animals as mammoths, the mastodon, the glyptodont, and the woolly rhinoceros were available for food supply. Ice Age Europeans who devised the Supernatural Realm and created its contents were fierce competitors, identifiable by their harshness and aggressiveness to match environmental conditions. Their best, who thrived in the setting of Scarcity, claimed to be the most powerful and the richest of all competitors in the Seen Natural world. Perhaps such illusions of superiority (being ignorant of African’s far, far advanced culture) expanded into hallucinations of being superior even in the Unseen World. By removing themselves from the Natural World altogether, meant Delusional beliefs consisted of being “larger than life” and possessing Supernatural powers—powers enabling them to straddle both Worlds and yet be larger than the sum scope of what both represent—powers to leap extra-mundane (out of this reality world) and extra-territorial (above land and waters) barriers—powers to unite the invisible and the visible—powers to disregard actual or supposed boundaries—powers to put boundaries on the boundless—powers to operate in the ‘here and now’ and orchestrate it while still remaining far away. Victims of vicious Kill/Take/Destroy methods were “Awed” and readily accepted being “inferiors.” Meanwhile, these barbarians treasured their tools of war above all else, often endowing them with Supernatural power.
Many legends tell of swords inhabited by demons, or acting as agents of gods who they fashioned into Contingent Beings to personify all the: (1) pride (arrogance), (2) wrath (great anger), (3) envy, (4) lust, (5) gluttony, and (6) avarice (covetousness, greediness) they believed in. Of course, there were countless other evil and sadistic aspects but Arrogant Pride stands out in these forms. Exaggerated, assertive or “high” Pride is Haughtiness (taking advantage of an established position while holding others in contempt). When it becomes overbearingly or insultingly superior, it is called Superciliousness–the showing of a pompous superiority of disdain (rejection, as non-verbally conveyed in lifting one eyebrow). When it demands laudation (excessive praise) and admiration, Vanity (groundless self-admiration) is present. In order to get the kudos (glory) fools desire and think they deserve, their vanity deliberately claims it and they declare themselves to be the standard and the judge of everybody else. Such arrogance is typically accompanied by Insolence–an ill-mannered rudeness (barbaric), impudence (without shame), contempt (despising and labeling their victims as worthless), and abusiveness (treating others badly). Arrogance, an aggressive form of Vanity, consists of an offensive exhibition of assumed superiority because of riches, station, learning, achievements, or domination. Pride is the parent of discontent, ingratitude, presumption, acquired negative emotions, rebellion, willful disobedience, insensitivity to others, extravagance, and bigotry.
The cunning they used in warring was inferred to be present in their gods–an image of something either having no real existence or exists incompletely. These were/are deemed to be so admirable in themselves and therefore in their gods as for both to be thought of as perfect in every kind of skill and information—making “right” everything they did/do. Because such perfection was used to pervert humans and entangle them in the meshes of sin that enabled their exploitation, these European male leaders worshipped their various self-made gods–e.g. the warrior god Thor–for purposes of self-seeking interest. Without limit or satiety, these Beings were/are symbolic of lowest human desires and the lowest affections, emotions, appetites and thoughts. Following the end of the Ice Age in 12,500 BC their Supernatural Realm was perceived as non-sensory, non-rational, non-definable, and non-identifiable inside a reality whose realm is not natural as humans live in and yet is superior to it. Their perceptions damned all values, enjoyments, achievements, and successes not sanctioned by the Supernatural cult. This Delusional World they lived in was ‘second nature’. All its perceptions were culturally transmitted into today’s descendants. jabaileymd.com
