The magi - idea


I find no real fault in Constantine's inclusion or plagiarization of at an earlier time and other systems of accepted wisdom or their symbology into Roman Empire common engineering. The badly behaved I see is the character of the data that they required to avoid be around ancestors from gaining. Awareness is power and awareness in the hands of the few is a demeaning power. They have used mind-fogging projections to yoke and make colonize live in fear of demons and other constructs.

"Among the most famous-and fiercest-of the laws that Moses is shown to bring down from Mt. Sinai are the ones that criminalize the attempt of magic. 'There shall not be found among you a soothsayer, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer,' decrees Moses. 'Thou shalt not endure a witch to live. ' (From Biblio: Deut 18: 10; Exod. 22: 18. ) Magic effective is condemned with equal eagerness in the Christian Bible, where it is explicitly kinked with all the other outrages of paganism: 'The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, {Yes, and the Catholics had more idols than the pagan pantheon chiefly when you consist of the saints along with 'Laddio, Daddio and Spook'. } and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the agree with death. ' (From Biblio: Rev. 21: 8. )

Ironically, an fascinating and enlightening clue to the affair of sorcery in the pagan world is hidden away in one of the most beloved passages of the Christian Bible. 'Three wise men' come in exploration of the babe Jesus, or so goes the conservative English rendition of Matthew 2: 1-2, 'for we have seen his star in the east, and have come to worship him. ' The 'wise men' are plainly called 'magi' in the Greek text, the plural form of 'magus,' a word that was used among the pagans of Babylonia and Persia to classify seers, soothsayers and sorcerers. 'Magus' is the root of 'magic,' and so we might more accurately call the men who followed a star to Bethlehem the three magicians.

'Magus' came to be used in Jewish and Christian circles as a derogatory term to express a big name who trafficked in black magic; a sorcerer, a deceiver, even a poisoner. But the fundamental denotation of the word in the pagan world was admirable and even exalted?" (1)

Then there are the continual proclamations that a choice of 'experts' make about ESP. Stanford Examination Institute built-in the inventor of the laser and many fine scientists that these so-called 'experts' are seldom able to evaluate or as debunkers are paid to marginalize. Russell Targ's book Inexhaustible Mind plus a introduction by Jean Houston is a great book for the truly open-minded individual. Targ's book - which is the study of consciousness and the eerie Matrix at a high exact level says: ". . . forced-choice ESP tests are an inefficient way to draw psi functioning: they all the time have an extra burden of boredom and mental noise (AOL). In the above studies, the experimenters, on average, had to carry out 3,600 trials to attain a statistically important result. With the free-response type of experiment, such as cold viewing, we typically have to do only six to nine trials. " (2) Does it not make sense to 'observe' all the avenues for wisdom that we are blessed with?
