—“This means you recognise the value of these practices mentioned? (Preaching/prayer/feasting). What have, or what would/should the people found/find shelter in if not ch*rches?”— Benjamin Baker
1 – The value of Teaching and Repeating in group forum to restate the terms of our contract with one another for reciprocity within the limits of proportionality.
2 – The use of Verbal Repetition (self programming) to satisfy our physical neuroticism – particularly when under stress, and
3 – The use of Celebrating together to eliminate our differences, therefore reducing social stresses of animals extremely conscious of their status in the pack (male) or herd (female)
That’s because I recognize that people need mindfulness. I recognize that abrahamic religion is the worst possible means of achieving it.
The fact that people ‘need or find shelter’ in a religion is evidence that it is evil. Cognitive behavioral therapy can not only prevent that need, but cure it.
The church closed the stoic schools in order to make people dependent, where the stoic schools made people eindependent.
The church wants addicts like drug dealers want addicts and for the same reason.
Our people want MINDFULNESS so that they do not need to be SEDATED and be ADDICTS to lies or drugs, or alcohol, or sex, or whatever else they need to sedate themselves in the absence of mindfulness.
My problem is coming up with a 12 step program of sorts to help addicts of semitic deceit to become fully human again.
This is my interpretation of Peterson’s work: he’s half restoring stoicism through self help rather than creating the program of education such that self help is not necessary.
It is no longer possible to convince educated people with experience in the world of the supernatural. We are no longer dumb and ignorant enough. I’m proposing the ‘scientific’ way of achieving the same ends.
