Recently (January 15, 2005) I was contacted by a 15 year old student of Upton High (state and city to be determined) who wanted to interview me in regards to the life of Sir Francis Bacon (Lord Verulam). The interview was conducted and this student asked me if there was anything else. This is what I relayed:
There is a nationally and worldwide known issue of a disabled person in my state (Florida) who is being subjected to attempted murder. Her name is Theresa Marie Schindler-Schiavo. The courts say that she is in a Persistent Vegetative State when in fact she is not, they lie. Videos were shown on CNN during a live feed that prove she is not comatose. She sits up in a chair. Her husband who lives with another woman for over 9 years and who has two children with this woman is trying to say that Theresa wants to die when in fact he has been denying her rehabilitation and therapy so that she can have her own voice and be back on to the road to her recovery. He has been with several women since he caused Theresa's incident and this is his latest live-in concubine who is in collusion with him to make Theresa dead. His attorneys are attempting to accomplish a heinous starvation/dehydration death on her for the third time. One of his attorneys wrote a book in which he talks about tearing out peoples feeding tubes and says he speaks to them by "soul speak" asking them if they want to die and they tell him along the lines "Yes, I want to die! Please kill me." The Hospice of the Florida Suncoast is holding her hostage for over 4 years. This feeding tube yanker attorney was chairman of the board of this hospice. This is the worst case of domestic terrorism happening in our country right now. While we are off in other countries helping helpless and disabled people the government has been remiss to save a human life from terrorism here in my state. There is a cover-up of mass proportions and I have the evidence on a CD to prove it. This message is to you and all of your classmates and teachers who may be reading this. Please contact others if you know of others who care to stop this murder. Perhaps you, or others, including activist friends, know people who have the power to stop what is happening here in my state or bring greater attention to what is going on. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 407-925-4141 and I will get whatever information you may need. Help me and others to stop the return of Nazi T4 days in Florida, the rest of the United States of America and the world. We must take a stand and make our voices heard.
DR. KUHN'S SPECIFIC ACHIEVEMENTS
1. HE HAS UNQUESTIONABLY made the first true interpretation of the Christian Bible and the theology based on it.
2. HE HAS OPENED for the first time the possibility of bringing to light the full clear inner hidden meaning of the entire body of ancient mythology, religion and drama. This becomes possible because--
3. HE HAS REDISCOVERED the alphabet, so to say, of that lost language of symbolism in which all ancient esoteric literature was written.
4. THIS ALL AMOUNTS TO saying that he has cleared away the accumulated debris of false and ignorant assumption that has choked up the original source-spring of meaning in all world literature, in all culture, in all civilization. He has thus broken through the dam that blocked the flow of the pure stream of human intelligence on which alone humanity can be borne along to higher truth and greater happiness.
5. HE HAS PROVEN that the Bibles of Christianity and Judaism and other great ancient texts of religion are not records of objective historical occurrence, but are collections of allegorical, mythical, dramatic and symbolic sagas and glyphs, picturing ideas, conceptions and the structural forms of truth. They are not objective histories. Their study has stultified the minds of millions who have falsely mistaken them for history.
6. HE HAS
CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED that the Christian religion was not a product of a
new revelation given by a messenger from heaven in the first century, but was a
development, motivated almost wholly by ignorance, of the material long extant
in the East coming mainly from ancient
7. HE HAS BEEN THE FIRST and likely so far the only scholar to have brought out the true and sublime meaning of the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, Egypt's "Bible," which all previous scholars have utterly missed and frightfully garbled and distorted. He frankly acknowledges in this his great debt to the work of Gerald Massey.
8. HE HAS MADE THE SENSATIONAL discovery that the alphabets of ancient languages are themselves constructions dramatizing the descent of the soul into earth life, its experience here and its return to superconscious realms.
9. HE HAS ESTABLISHED the great basic item of all interpretation, that the Scriptures are dealing with but one story, one fact--the Incarnation.
10. HE IS THE FIRST SCHOLAR ever to make a complete transposition of the meaning of the Scriptures from reference to the outer world of objective historical event over to reference to the inner world of man's subjective consciousness. This gigantic accomplishment, when it is finally fully recognized, must make all the world of scholarship stand aghast. No other scholar has ever attempted this in complete organic form, or perhaps even dreamed of its possibility.
11. HE HAS FOUND--among hundreds of great and lesser "keys"--that the so-called "fall of man" was not a mistake, not a blunder, not a miscarriage of God's plan for man, not in any adverse or evil sense a "fall" at all, but on the contrary the normal natural descent of the soul into body, under orderly cosmic law, and wholly good and beneficent. For this correction of depraved theology the world owes him infinite gratitude.
12. THE GREATEST SINGLE discovery he has made is the lost meaning of "death." That the word "death" in the Bible does not refer to the demise of the physical body, but is a term referring to the "dead" condition of the soul of man when it is incarnated in physical body on earth, is a single revelation that will at one stroke change all Bible meaning.
13. NEXT TO THIS is his certification that the Christian "hell," or Hades (the Egyptian Amenta), the "underworld" of mythology, is not any shadowy abode somewhere below the earth, or some spooky limbo of the astral plane, but is all the time this good earth, we being the "shades of the dead," as the ancients surely called us. This effects a tremendous realignment and clarification in all religious and mythological study.
14. HE HAS RECONDITIONED and revitalized the ancient science of analogy, by which all natural objects and phenomena can be seen to be the types of living truth, external picturizations or hieroglyphs of inner and spiritual laws. He has shown that this science is the clearest and soundest key to all deeper understanding of the meaning and laws of life.
15. AS SOON AS IT CAN BE SEEN, it will be apparent that he has rebuilt the one primeval true religion in the form that will make it completely available to serve as the One World Religion toward which mankind looks so hopefully today. This at last will bring the world onward to universal brotherhood.
THESE FIFTEEN POINTS MUST SUFFICE, although the list could be run into hundreds if details of Biblical allegorism and interpretation and doctrinal elucidations were included.
