DAY 7

In the Bible it says 'God' made the world in 6 days and on the 7th day he rested. Well, i've no particular interest in the Bible other than as historical source and as historic document in it's own right, as well as for what it has to share on Jesus' teachings, however obscure, misleading, and incomplete they may be conveyed therein.
I have, though, certainly already said the most important things in the first 6 days. If one were to know the above and nothing else, one would be endlessly better prepared for life on this planet than the masses ignorant of it. Even the so-called sophisticated and scholared elite could do much much better (even if they weren't insane to begin with).
It is a good moment then, perhaps, to reflect on what's already been stated. In general this also applies to our age. After 12,000 years of mankind's current era, 2000+ years of global evolution, more-or-less 200 years of pretty sophisticated research, about 20 years of the internet, and the past 2 years since TEOTWAWKI that didn't happen on the 21st of December 2012,, this is a good time to set a bar. An index is a number set, more or less arbitrarily, by which to measure progress to and from that point. This is a good time for mankind to set an index. In many ways we're about as far as we're going to get in mastering the planet, at least in most ways that aren't connected to high-tech research and technology that is limited to the understanding a tiny minority, and that only in bits and pieces. We have learned about all the landmasses and geology, the periodic table, finally a lot of basics have been dealt with that relate to a better understanding of gravity and electricity, etc. etc. etc. Though humanity is still suffering from a kind of mass insanity, psychological epidemic, and a general lack of common sense,, a fairly decent foundation of data and logic has been established. I think it's possible to put something in writing that could mean quite a lot to a future generation, should something happen to this one.

The books humanity has that go back millennia don't appear to offer us much, not in any practical sense, nor theoretically. I personally believe, for instance, that the Bible has some interesting things to say on the diet for people with blood type B, since it's confirmed by the research of Peter D'Adamo and his son. However, since the Bible never mentioned that their advice about diet has to do with a particular blood type, nor is it explained how or why this should work, as well as the fact that other modern sources i appreciate suggest that the blood type diet is fairly moot anyway,, even in this area the Bible wasn't really helpful. We can do much better, it seems, going by what this age has to say on the matter. The same applies to just about all other topics.

This age of internet is amazing; we can share information with other individuals all over the world. Research done by just one single person on the other side of the planet can spread to everybody. It doesn't matter that the person sharing the knowledge is poor, isn't part of some group, or hasn't been vouched for by some authoritarian peer group or other [university, government, whatever]. Through so-called grass-roots connections, a book like The Celestine Prophecy became a best-seller, even though there wasn't a publisher in the world that set out to promote it [and a few of the "insights" mentioned in the book are very worthwhile]. I myself ran into a book by the Ruchira Buddha Adi Da Samraj pretty randomly, though Adidam is known by just a few thousand people worldwide. Now, it's possible to visit the Adidam website and order books online written by Da. Basically, billions now have access to them. I believe, however, that the internet's days are numbered. Already there are actually things i used to be able to find there that i cannot anymore. There's an evolution to it that has to do with a lot more than just a growing online database. That's just another reason to take advantage of the vast amount and array of information that can be accessed and see how we can benefit from that already. As a teenager i didn't choose to dive into any of the research options offered me, because i noticed, even in that time and at that age, that there seemed to be a lot of data, information, and ideas that weren't getting utilized anyway already; so what good would further research do if the research that had already been done turned out to get ignored? I thought it was strange back then but nowadays i recognize it for what it is: the psychological disease ruling the planet; any information that doesn't suit TPTB or the authoritarian trauma, gets culled and filtered out. In this way there's actually a lot of very important research getting lost! That's just another reason why this is a good point in time to set an index, for as TPTB continue to become more powerful and influencial, we should be asking ourselves if things have any hope of getting better from here on anyway.
Individuals over the world have had access to each other's information for a while now. In the first years of the internet it was perhaps elitist, but just yesterday i heard that even in the so-called 3rd-world country of Morocco 75% of it's people have access to internet. However, these people aren't going to be able to read most of what's on the internet since they don't speak English (and though they often do speak French, it's usually not as a native speaker, and there's a lot less information available in French). At the same time, though, governments all over the world are spreading their totalitarian tendencies through the very same technologies. Predictions made in the Bible concerning "the mark of the Beast" without which no one will be able to do anything, are looking more and more to become reality; it seems just a matter of time before people who do not accept some kind of chip, will be barred from all kinds of services that are controlled by government. That includes access to the internet!

As i've said, i think it's time for a new religion. Having said that, what I understand under the word "religion" is something different than the popular idea of it. What the mainstream calls "religion" might be referred to as pseudo-religion. Mainstream religion is religious like the 75% are human; one might say, it's pseudo-religious like the 75% are pseudo-human.
In fact, mainstream religion and spirituality are basically each other's opposites. Religion should and can be an extention or expression of spiritual life, but in popular culture it opposes it. Mainstream religion is about leaving your connection to 'the divine' in the hands of others, i.e. in the hands of church authorities. Spirituality, on the other hand, works from the assumption that you have a direct link to 'the Divine', being part of it or however your teaching approaches the matter. Spirituality tends to be about a teaching, whereas mainstream religion tends to be about authority and organisation.
So one should keep such things in mind if i mention a Bible 2.0 or Christianity 2.0; just as my research and considerations lead to a different definition of the word "religion", compared to the popular one, so too do i work from a different definition of what Christianity is or who or what Jesus Christ was. For instance, when popular culture thinks of religion, they associate this with faith, belief, and trust in church authorities; Jesus Christ, on the other hand, clearly spoke of truth and against authority. These words have thus become quite tainted and have actually come to convey, in the mainstream at least, the exact opposite of their initial content.
