On Mailing List ‘A’ with Respondent No. 20
RESPONDENT: How can immortality deserve to be in oblivion!
RICHARD: Because it is but a belief ... and it is a belief that prevents one from being here at this moment in time where purity and perfection abound. Being here – which can only happen when ‘I’, the psychological entity within, abdicates its throne – enables one to be happy and harmless for, along with the ‘I’ goes sorrow and malice. Without malice, there is no war, murder, torture, rape, domestic violence and corruption that is so endemic ... it is intrinsic to the human condition. Without sorrow there is no sadness, loneliness, grief, depression and suicide that is such a global incidence ... it is also inherent to the human condition.
Immortality is but a fantasy spun out of a delusion born out of an illusion. ‘I’ think and feel that ‘I’ am so important that ‘I’ must live forever. It is a pernicious belief with its roots buried deep in self-importance and self-aggrandisement. It is where conceit meets arrogance and become meekness and humility ... and seeks its post-mortem reward.
Thus, for me, ‘Immortality’ has been banished to the oblivion it deserves.
RESPONDENT: I believe, as I think No. 3 does too, that unless you can convey your message to others ... it doesn’t profit you to say or write anything. That only in learning the art of communication can your words be worth a fig to anyone else.
RICHARD: Okay ... I will endeavour to improve upon my communication skills by restraining my eloquence (what a pity, for I kind of fancied it). Is this post any better so far?
RESPONDENT: It has been shown that the female is capable of creating the ova and the activating essence to create a life without any male being involved. I understand such offspring are generally female. This could be the very thing that created the extreme paternalistic dominance of the past few millennia ... I mean ... how does the male ego handle the fact that he is biologically redundant?
RICHARD: I do not know how a male ego handles the fact that he is biologically redundant for I do not have one. Also, I had a vasectomy many, many years ago because I was not interested in procreating and adding to the population explosion ... so I do not mind at all being redundant.
RESPONDENT: To state these things as ‘nothing other than being in a state of denial’. Is a sweeping generalisation which shows little depth or thought. There are many good reasons for the separation of the sexes ... and most of them have to do with the powerful nature of sexual attraction. In my experience if there is any restriction in a ‘religion’ it is because of manipulation by the power structure, or as a preparation for a return to this condition at a higher point in the spiral.
RICHARD: Nevertheless, I do still consider that it is ‘being in a state of denial’ because, back in my spiritual years, I was celibate for nearly five years (along with many other austere practices) and I would look down when urinating and think: ‘Is that all these parts are to be used for?’. Eventually I decided to forego my puritan path and embark upon the way of pleasure. Instead of being ‘Straight and narrow is the path to God’, the way of pleasure is a wide and wondrous path, full of enjoyment and delight. And it does not exclude half of the population ... which I consider is definitely being in a state of denial.
I did give the matter a great depth of thought ... and the results have vindicated my decision.
The Third Alternative
(Peace On Earth In This Life Time As This Flesh And Blood Body)
Here is an actual freedom from the Human Condition, surpassing Spiritual Enlightenment and any other Altered State Of Consciousness, and challenging all philosophy, psychiatry, metaphysics (including quantum physics with its mystic cosmogony), anthropology, sociology ... and any religion along with its paranormal theology. Discarding all of the beliefs that have held humankind in thralldom for aeons, the way has now been discovered that cuts through the ‘Tried and True’ and enables anyone to be, for the first time, a fully free and autonomous individual living in utter peace and tranquillity, beholden to no-one.
