There cannot be several opinions about one thing. This is why what we call science is science. In the realm of science, until one thing is proved both by the theory and the experience, it is not called a fact, it is not reality, it is not valid, it is called a theory. On the contrary, what is called human-sciences like psychology, sociology … everything that is not related to matter but to the human world is entitled to have different views on the same topic.

As if man was less united than matter, as if man was not worth the proof of a validated concept, as if man was not able to understand himself, or at least, worth a healthy search like in science and call theory all what is not proved, even if that takes millenaries just as it is in science by the way. The fundamental questions of life, of humanity are still to this day a challenge not resolved and rightly so because of the multitude of theories themselves.

In reality, the field of human sciences, to which you can add all mind related subjects like religion is a football field during the world cup, but without a winner. I’d call that idolatry. And that situation that has endured since the dawn of time is the one and only cause of the materialistic war like domain where humankind messes around with so much pain and distress for so long with no end in sight. Well, for the majority because there has always been people who are more equals then the others.

The situation is entirely due to the majority that cannot to an agreement on the stupid ground that one is not equal to the other, that one deserves more, that equality is not a natural of being which no one has to care for except those who govern, and at their will because they own the power, but that is of secondary importance because after all, being more equal has never been the goal but the contrary, the opportunity of rising more than others.

So you see, he who is at the helm does not matter as long as it protects the inequality between people who are at war with one another at the basical level, as a default self-programming, a supreme motto blowing in the wind (--- not a Natural Mystic that is L). Are we better than robots, than ‘Sophia’ that says it (---she !! :) dedicates its (---her !! :) ‘life’ to making a better world for humans (without () !! :) ? In the natural so-called unequal world, well, things do not go this wrong as far as I know …

All that is to say something else ! In Judaism, just as in all other ‘religions’ (---idolatries J), there are many aspects of one thing, just think of Hillel and Shamai. You have Shiites and Sunites just as in Islam. You find Chabads, Conservatives, Liberals just as in you have Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox. And they call themselves religions of the same God ? Let me tell you how.

He who set the example of the theory that if man is at the helm, the law is not accept definitive proved arguments because it doesn’t matter but a chosen leader to apply the law of the majority, and he said that textually when by this mental trick, Shimon ben Gamliel when disputing against his son in law, Eliezer ben Hyrcanus in the famous deliberation concerning the "Oven of Akhnai", dispute where it was decided that religious leaders have to follow the majority's opinion exclusively because the Torah is not in the sky. The absolute of God’s laws is hence irrelevant in running human life. This was for the theory I said …

Well, when talking about humanity, I always come back to Etienne de La Boetie’s ‘Voluntary Servitude’ and to the story of the ‘Oven of Akhnai’* ! Now, how practically all together put in place this desired fatality ? And not only the people who run the show but those who applaud, hem …

The big picture has no relevance but the details. Remember that. What is the Talmud ? What is important in the Charedi community when an individual goes to the Rav ? (--- better go to the picture :)If that is for a fundamental question, the answer will come with a smile but whatever the answer is, and generally it remains at an opinion level, like “you can chose that or anything else you see fit”, after that quick surface event will come the big questions. Have you checked the mezuzot, how do you say this word in your daily prayer, does your wife check the salad properly …

You get it !! Professionals in marketing, in deluding, in being the one who know (---but who doesn’t :), the one to whom one obey, the tyrant. No real answer, never formulated; no real ear has listened to you; cold and empty encounter, that is what is practiced the world around under different colors. Add it is the same in children education and you got an eternity of the same, a pit with no escape door.

And still the same they do with the Torah !!! For the main events of it, the first commandment for instance, they will stick to the first part, “It is Me Who is your God”, use the second part as the material proof of it with no explanation or a simple one (Who took you out of Egypt), and they will put apart the third part or ignore it purposely because it is the one that justify the two former: “out a house of slaves” and illuminate the whole sentence**.

But, about other occasions, they will have ten thousands explanations of which a few are revered as a the top of human genius, but unlike in science, with no proof. Ah ! In these details, they will put all their logic, all their intelligence to make great something far from the main road, far from what we ought to know really, far from reality. As someone said, “they aren’t even wrong” …

"Natural Mystic"

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air;
If you listen carefully now you will hear.
This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last:
Many more will have to suffer,
Many more will have to die - don't ask me why.

Things are not the way they used to be,
I won't tell no lie;
One and all have to face reality now.
'Though I've tried to find the answer to all the questions they ask.
'Though I know it's impossible to go livin' through the past -
Don't tell no lie.

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air -
Can't keep them down -
If you listen carefully now you will hear.

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air.

This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last:
Many more will have to suffer,
Many more will have to die - don't ask me why.

There's a natural mystic blowing through the air -
I won't tell no lie;
If you listen carefully now you will hear:
There's a natural mystic blowing through the air.

** Of the importance of the last part :

First, it is never translated as it should and that makes a Whole difference of meaning and understanding.

The hebrew text writes :"מִבֵּית עֲבָדִים"

which ironically Google translate nearly as it should :

"From the house of slaves" except for 'the' that should read 'a'.

The Bible I read translates: "out of the house of bondage",

which is a world apart !!!

It is not spoken here of bondage, even less of slavery but of slaves ...

Meaning that the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt NOT because the state was a tyranny
because they were living among slaves
that they indeed emulated until they became slaves themselves.

Any other comment ?
