The Voice of the Devil.
All Bibles or sacred codes have been the causes of the following Errors.
1. That Man has two real existing principles Viz: a Body & a Soul.
2. That Energy, call’d Evil, is alone from the Body, & that Reason, call’d Good, is alone from the Soul.
3. That God will torment Man in Eternity for following his Energies.
But the following Contraries to these are True
1. Man has no Body distinct from his Soul for that call’d Body is a portion of Soul discern’d by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age
2. Energy is the only life and is from the Body and Reason is the bound or outward circumference of Energy.
3 Energy is Eternal Delight
Identifying with your body, is an error, but less of an error than identifying with your mind. Your body is the outward manifestation of something very real. Connecting with your body connects you with the present moment and thus eternity.
When you leave your body and live “in your head” you enter an illusory world which alienates you from the source of life and thus from your fellow humanity. The incessant inner dialogue of the ego mind creates fear and anxiety and dwells always in the future or the past, never in the present moment, which alone is real. Both present and past are mental constructs; abstractions.
The ego mind is constructed from this whole idea of separation, which is an illusion. In the West, this error goes all the way back to Descartes “I think therefore I am.”
There is a great deal of ambiguity inherent to existence that is missing here. This nonacceptance of ambiguity is known in Buddhism as the “primordial error.”
So Transhumanism is the program of attempting to trap oneself forever into the false reality/identity of the ego mind. Its a Hellish idea.
It’s deifying the most inconsequential part of a human being above all else and seeking to make it immortal. Its basically the attempt of trapping oneself in a state of alienation and isolation forever.
The ego mind is the cause of suffering. It is the mindset that prevents us from living lives of abundance. The ego begins from a feeling of lack, or scarcity, and it puts one at odds with all other living beings in a competition for the acquisition of scarce resources.
Through the body we can experience sexual union. This breaks down the borders of the ego mind.
Feelings such as empathy also come from a breaking down of this border. Inherent in empathy is a realization that every living being is connected and that you cannot hurt another being without also causing harm to oneself.
To be completely enthralled to the ego mind is to live in a completely solipsistic universe. There is no empathy or sexual union in this delusion; only narcissism and masturbation.
The growing acceptance that you will one day die is an important aspect of spiritual development: It causes you to seek that which is eternal. It leads to inquiry into the self. This inquiry leads to personal discovery of the True self or Atman. This is the inner part of us that never dies. This is consciousness itself, the field from which all conscious beings find their ground. The way to access this inner self is through quieting the mind through meditation. The incessant chattering of the ego mind comes to be seen like smoke in the air, or mud in the water. The purpose of meditation is to allow this mud to settle, to blow the smoke away revealing clarity.
The project of transhumanism is to immortalize this smoke or mud; To prevent clarity forever and deify ignorance.
Fortunately, being based on a fundamental misunderstanding of reality, it will never succeed, but the danger is that it will succeed in greatly extending the suffering of certain individuals who take this path, trapping them in the imprisonment of the ego mind for centuries rather than decades. Walking corpses of putrified mummy flesh, they will be surrounded by and interlaced with robot parts, creating the most horrible prison the world has ever known.
