'The Unseen Realm', the realm of the 'dis-embodied
Jan 12th, 2018 at 11:24am
 

'The Unseen Realm', the realm of the 'dis-embodied'.
aka the spirit realm!





'The Unseen Realm'
         is a body of work, by Mike Heiser, which examines the concepts of 'God' and the spirit realm ['the unseen realm'], as presented, in [Hebrew & N.T.] scripture, and from other ancient sources.


As a 'lead-in' to this material, and to the examination of this work by Mike Heiser, i would suggest you first listen to this online audio.
     ------ >

audio source....
VFTB 277: Mike Heiser – The Unseen Realm

September 30, 2015
http://www.vftb.net/?p=5950
n.b. there is a hi-fidelity version, and a smaller, lower-fidelity version of the audio.
the smaller, lower-fidelity version of the mp3 of this conversation is completely adequate.

'The Unseen Realm'
is a book by Mike Heiser
http://theunseenrealm.com/
http://drmsh.com/

Amazon page....
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1577995562




The information presented by Dr. Michael S. Heiser, is all very interesting and challenging  [esp. to Christians], especially to those with 'traditional' religious conceptions about 1/ 'the person of God' and 2/ the social 'purpose' of mainstream human religion !!!

The start of this exploration started when Mike Heiser's attention was focused upon the contents of Psalms 82 and Psalms 89.



.



I await the disparaging post from --issuevoter-- insisting that this material has no place on the Philosophy board.

Spirituality is really the expression of 'Fashion'
("...and they came to know they were naked in the garden, etc, etc").
To which the Middle-east really kicked off the emphasis of importance which 'Fashion' is.
Fashion describes and expresses who the person is and how they feel about themselves. In essence, Fashion is the true form of Spirituality.

Sadly, the misuse of the word 'Spiritual' has been exposed in this modern century to be an excuse for anything and mostly that 'anything' has been a very vague expression for both excuse and 'fictional'. It also is a word used to declare someone 'better' than another ...but falls short unless some 'visual' representation is given. Hence why Spirituality (Fashion), although the 'partner' of Religion, is also closely related to Art (Visual).

So to use 'Spiritual' as a word to describe the vague fictionalities of 'other' existences that may or may not be real - is just a cop out or misrepresentation (because the ability to describe better is not there).

The true 'Spirit Realm' is a Fashionable one, not some 'plausible' other existence like a castle in the clouds and fairies under mushrooms.
In other words - Hallucinations, Mirages and imaginings are NOT 'spirit realms'.

Sorry Yadda, but you are barking up the wrong tree there.

Vulcan,

Ah, i can see that you are a person who approves of the rigorous scientific modus, of acquiring true knowledge.


Hmmmmm, yes,

The spirit realm.

We can't see it, feel it, touch it.

Therefore, the 'spirit realm' does not exist.



ARGUMENT;
For thousands of years, mankind had no knowledge of the       ACTUAL     existence of radio waves [even naturally produced radio waves].

Can't see em, can't feel em, can't touch em.

Therefore, radio waves did not exist.       [.....before the invention of devices which could detect radio waves.]

The scientific modus has been applied.




Another simple example....

Go outside, and look up at the sky on a cloudless, sunny day.

That sky is full of stars.

Because we cannot see them [during daylight], does not prove that the stars are not up there, in the sky.

A scientific approach to "spirituality" is a contradiction in terms, whether you believe such stuff or not. The human condition is one of neurosis in varying forms and degrees. Gods and "spirituality" are thought manifestations of neurosis, and for those cases in particular, elaborate justification is common, and perhaps better than none, but a claim of an esoteric perception of reality is required.

Making the text of the whole bible in particular [66 books] one of teh longest and most dedicated 'manifestations of neurosis' produced by humanity.

/sarc off



And yet throughout much of human history,          many, many human beings have been able to find solace and peace and spiritual guidance, within the breadth of its pages.

The Holy Bible is a healing book.
....to the soul of many of those who undertake to read its words.




Psalms 23:1
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.


Psalms 51:7
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8  Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9  Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11  Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12  Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13  Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

So what? That solace blather is a neurotic fixation. And it requires you to claim that there is more than one level of reality, the perception of which is esoteric. That's a lie. A further lie is that this guidance of yours actually leads somewhere. The arrogance of your claim to special cosmic information is astonishing, and at the same time it is an insult to your own intelligence.

Religion was formulated in the Middle-East Yadda.
The Middle-East then wrote 'three' Holy Books based upon the other three surrounding 'Old Worlds' of Asia, Europe & Africa.
Christianity is themed upon the influence of Europe.
The obvious connection is seen through Christianity's two main aspects of 'Healing' and the 'Last Supper'.
Now Europe has influenced the world with its Medical Industry and Culinary Food Industry.
You could say that both are Europe's 'Gifts' to the World.
What was once a Sword, is now a Scalpel and a Chef's knife.

Basically - Europe was the 'true' Healer, not Christianity.
The threat of such a cultural aspect was what drove 'Religion' to persecute all the actual real 'healers' in Witches (originally also 'male' healers, especially in the Slavic regions), Druids and even the Romans had 'surgeons'.

When I worked in the Medical Industry. If there was 'paperwork' to be done, I would turn to the guy next to me and ask if he was a Christian? If he said 'yes'. Then I would shove the paperwork to him and say "Here - you can do the paperwork then!".

You can 'write' a book on 'Healing' - but let the Medical Professionals do the actual 'healing'  Wink

'Religion' wasn't formulated in the Middle-East JaSin.
'Religion' is a        concept,        which has many variants and which have their origins from within the human psyche.




The Middle-East then wrote 'three' Holy Books based upon the other three surrounding 'Old Worlds' of Asia, Europe & Africa.

'The Middle-East' didn't write anything.
'The Middle-East' is a GEOGRAPHIC AREA.




Christianity is themed upon the influence of Europe.

No, it isn't.
'Europe' is a GEOGRAPHIC AREA.
Modern Christianity is 'themed' upon human hierarchical influence and control, of political influence.




The obvious connection is seen through Christianity's two main aspects of 'Healing' and the 'Last Supper'.

Healing, is what 1/ 'environment' and 2/ time and 3/ our body does, for us, if we allow it.
The 'Last Supper' isn't an 'aspect'.
Some believe that it was a historical event.




Now Europe has influenced the world with its Medical Industry and Culinary Food Industry.

JaSin, has pharma had some influence upon your consciousness ?
Or are you a BOT ?




You could say that both are Europe's 'Gifts' to the World.

No, no.    'Europe' is a GEOGRAPHIC AREA.
Europe does not 'bestow' anything, Europe [the continent] just is.




What was once a Sword, is now a Scalpel and a Chef's knife.

Oh i see, a sword transforms itself, into other objects.
JaSin i ask again, has pharma had some influence upon your consciousness ?




Basically - Europe was the 'true' Healer, not Christianity.

JaSin once again, 'Europe' is a GEOGRAPHIC AREA,      not      a 'Medical Professional'.




The threat of such a cultural aspect was what drove 'Religion' to persecute all the actual real 'healers' in Witches (originally also 'male' healers, especially in the Slavic regions), Druids and even the Romans had 'surgeons'.

Oh, is that so ?
[reader, i would suggest that pharma has had some influence upon this persons consciousness.
it would be best     NOT     to follow his example.]




When I worked in the Medical Industry. If there was 'paperwork' to be done, I would turn to the guy next to me and ask if he was a Christian? If he said 'yes'. Then I would shove the paperwork to him and say "Here - you can do the paperwork then!".

"When I worked...."     JaSin, Are you certain, that you weren't a patient there ?
Do you still have some pay slips, as a tangible proof of your 'employment' there ?
JaSin, Q. What pharma are you currently prescribed by your 'employer' ?




You can 'write' a book on 'Healing' - but let the Medical Professionals do the actual 'healing'  Wink

JaSin, i've told you 'healing' is accomplished through 1/ 'environment' and 2/ time and 3/ processes within our body.







JaSin,

You post a LOT of rambling tosh.

Look it up.



My advise; STOP WITH THE PHARMA      JaSin.


p.s.
JaSin,      If you have a high confidence in the competency of 'Medical Professionals', then i would suggest that you proceed along that path yourself, and submit yourself to their care.

Q. Do the staff at your 'facility', know that you have access to the office computer at night ?
