For much of my life, I have studied the engineering of the ancients. They had episodes of having access to the highest mathematical computations as evidenced by their artifacts. Peru comes to mind. Egypt and Sumer are not far behind. The abject thinking that is inherent within mythological traditions of all the ancients such as the Vedics and the Jomon shows glimpses of a background of isolated brilliance that popped up here and there almost as if there were a company of Texas Aggies flying around the Earth trying to help out where they could — taking their knowledge and wisdom and "their goodies with them." But the knowledge of their genetics seems on par with that of today or even higher than ours. They were highly creative and they knew whereof they existed. They knew the fiery intelligence that inhabited their bodies was much more than just evolving happenstance. The savages they came in contact with, which must have been some 99.99% of those on Earth, just did enough to get from one meal to the next out of habit and necessity because they had forgotten what civilization had brought to the table after the Run of some great catastrophe or a series of catastrophes that had displaced an earlier Golden Age. The Earth just did not look the same and it did not provide the same. They were out of sync with nature. Those "Aggies" or the Corps of Engineers Did know and had access to tools that just put them out front on any task — they were us. They were us as we could be if we applied ourselves to learning and studying and working to become the Super Christ. The Christos Avenue to BECOMING was known to the ancient architects and they knew of the Tree of Being. They knew how we are manifest here in Time/Space and tried to tell us what we once knew but due to convention we were too busy trying to survive rather than put out the effort to attain our former verve. Christ is indeed who and what we should strive for to become. Hero worship of those who strive to be all they can be became something else...Religion. Religion is Complex Ignorance (See Manley P. Hall's Conclusion Chapter in Secret Teachings of All Ages.) Religion is for those who watch what should be done rather than actually live within the very sphere into which we are born. It is what it is. The Que to our existence is onboard and within our reach if we only would just follow our own mentality. We are self-aware but not cognizant of our own glory. We are indeed multifaceted beings and capable of high attainment intellectually, but apparently we are lazy. We suffer from amnesia or we just do not try hard enough to regain the intellectual and spiritual level that we are truly and clearly able to do. We sit and look at God all day, rather than take up the mantel of being part of the whole. It sits in the background of our minds and we just let it go so we can go to the mall and buy more junk. In my house there are thousands of books, they tell the story of humanity in every blank space between the lines of just how great we could be. We watch the life, but we do not live the life which is way beyond anything we see today
Not that one is, but THAT whereby Is, is. That is the Crux of Becoming. We can become the very God we worship but we do not live it.
