THE UNKNOWN AND EUROPEANS’ SUPERNATURAL
For all humans, the Unknown can be imaged as an Icon symbol consisting of a collage of an Association of Ideas–Ideas one has no concept about, is somehow remotely acquainted, and/or one has made-up and repeated so often as for it to seem real. This Icon Symbol’s bits and pieces thus carries the potential for being about the Normal, Misfits, and Miscellaneous. Any of these “as is” or any which undergoes a ‘mutation’ might form a “Normal Variant.” This lies between Normal and Abnormal but is not sufficiently different from either to be called one or the other. In medicine, clinical pathological manifestations are generally not present when the “Normal Variant” is closer to the Normal than to the abnormal. Yet, considerable confusion can exist as the “Normal Variant” approaches the Abnormal pathological state. For example, the “Normal Variant” of ones genetically derived bunion (and thus unlikely to cause symptoms, despite its increased susceptibility to do so) can be carelessly and wrongly designated to be the cause of ones foot pain. A Secular Unknown is like a “Normal Variant” in that its contents can be characterized as real, distorted, and/or fantasy. Hence, it can be assigned to designate any point on the scale, ranging from the Greatest of the Good Abnormal down to the worst of the Bad Abnormal in the Natural Cosmos or even into the made-up Supernatural. Any category might be selected by a given type of mindset. To illustrate, people with a weakened Private Selfhood make a volitional decision to give up being their Real Self because of a lack of Courage and loss of personal power to continue being who they really are. By automatically stepping into an Unknown “Life-Living” flow is called “Pathography” (Greek, patho-suffering, disease + -graphy, writing). Initially simply being a description of a disease, it was later applied to the study of an individual or a community as relating to the influence of a disease. Since 1848, Pathography has referred to a biography focusing on the negative. It can proceed through the following phases.
Phase I is losing what the Natural Cosmos is about—e.g. all Cosmic Organism connections– an ability to see the wonders within ones Private Selfhood–any “yoking” with the Cosmic Creator—and any sense of “Life after Death.” Phase II is that, as a result of Phase I, one is converted from a “ME/WE” orientation to a “Me, Me, Me” manner of “Life-Living”. Not to know others argues oneself to be Unknown. Phase III is the lack of visionary power–of an absence of direction as to how to return to their Natural Cosmic home–and of an unawareness where they came from. Phase IV: What is compatible with being inside a bottomless unreal realm is the development of a False Self “Inside-Out” Belief System, as with whatever is significant is not from ones Self, but in External World “Things” and people. Such viewings, similar to a drowning person clutching at straws in hope they will aid survival, ones Ego clutches the false airy beliefs—claiming them glorious since they come from some Unknown ‘Superior Supernatural Being’—and necessarily choosing to ignore that they are the product of ones own imagination in order to believe oneself is also superior. This idea of the Supernatural arrives out of an awareness by either sham or nonscientific techniques—none of which can be described or explained because they were done inside an “Air Castle.”
Phase V–an Attitude of “me vs. the world”–makes for a revolting and rebellious “Heart” against the light of the Certainty characterizing the Natural Cosmos and its patterns of Order, as laid out by Ancient African Sages. Since whatever is Uncertain carries Doubt and Ambiguity, being entangled in it leads one to fantasize about ways out of it. And the obvious choice is to declare oneself to be a “little god”. This self-declaration embraces: Omnipotence (Unlimited and universal power) and Omniscient–total knowledge of everything, despite having “no clue” about anything except what comes out of an Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadism (IHES) complex. Phase VI is the obsession to gratify Lower (animalistic) Self Fetters, “Dark Side” Desires and their associated goals. Brutes follow the model of patterns spotlighted by the mythological personified African god Set—e.g. lust, arrogance, anger, fear, attachments, amoral, greed. Phase VII is the stopping at nothing to achieve these ends—whether by generating Confusion/Trickery/Deceit or by the more aggressive Kill/Take/Destroy/Dominate methods. Brutes are too lost to be enlightened. jabaileymd.com
