I predict the goal of the right-wing evangelical conservatives as mentioned in the opening paragraphs will fail disastrously… not by driving people toward atheism as Tarico suggests, but toward an inner-based spiritual philosophy, more along the lines of the Gnosticism of the Cathars or Buddhism.
The scheduled seminar (details below) and last night’s reading revelation got me to recall the progression of events I’ve detailed in this post.
The trouble with time started a century ago, when Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity demolished the idea of time as a universal constant. One consequence is that the past, present, and future are not absolutes. Einstein’s theories also opened a rift in physics because the rules of general relativity (which describe gravity and the large-scale structure of the cosmos) seem incompatible with those of quantum physics (which govern the realm of the tiny).
So much of what we know as “fact” in life is, in truth, nothing more than propaganda or a well-meant reflection on how events and people are perceived…
Extending yourself so that you interact more completely with the spiritual realm while yet retaining a thin hold upon the physical world is termed Edge Work. Edge Work is a very versatile technique with numerous potential applications.
