Lately an kind of inner voice was distracting me much as I was working on a computer, which can be already quite hypnotic, but it proved to be correct (which is not the same as right). My age is always essential to people in exact ratio to how I don't wish to consider it myself as it tells nothing about where you or I stand in life rather than a mechanical, chronological and chronic society to which we are subservient at all times.
Mentally lazy people take this for granted. It is chronic by means of a type of control assuming time to be an automatic rectifier, adapting everyone to one basic concept, as everyone finally dies and loses and the theory has won. The time is based on the rhythm of a political and economic reality and their joint material investment in us.
This inner voice is a form of pestering from naivety, characteristic of anonymous lovers and friends, and imitated by who seek my appendix or the other way round. I don't know which comes first, for time to me is just causality, karma if automatic, a logic that people seem to miss except in slowly dying.
I recently asked someone what life is like in between abortion and euthanasia, but I got no reply.
These two preoccupations don't bring the timeless within reach that people seek.
Education is part of a strategy of the state, also in a democracy. And we are obliged to it for life, sometimes less mentally free than we were under some of the dictators of the past. We can see the results. Psychiatry seems to be the only industry still growing in the West, moulding the mind of several nations to an uncritically obedient and dull standard.
In reaction to this people seek freedom rather than obligation in sexuality, for without freedom there can be no love. But this has become political as well and has been abundantly exploited. It is really the point where pornography has begun.
Always throwing the first stone to distract attention from its own decay, the state is obviously part of this interaction. That is why I deny the earth is round. It is absolutely as square as can be.
I used to think that man represents time and woman space, and respectively Logos (logic) and Eros, but I changed my mind. Superficially speaking, women live more with time than (with) men.
This is biological. They have their period and in analogy are more curious about the weather forecast and the news, and all kinds of discoveries.
Mahatma Koot Hoomi once observed that people too compulsively imitate nature. Is that why there is so much bloodshed?
And he said that woman is the 'Lady Echo' who always has the final say.
In this way the last will be first, and the first will be last.
Sigmund Freud wrote his book 'Moses and Monotheism' after he had fled to London from Vienna to escape the Nazis in 1938. He claimed in it that the monotheistic religion of Moses was partially borrowed from Akhenaten, often referred to as the first individual in history. Moses means 'son' ('mose' in Egyptian; see Thut-mose and so on).
Others have suggested that Akhenaten's grandfather Yuya on his mother's side was the same as Joseph the dream-teller from the Bible, which means the latter would have been vizier to Thutmose IV, who is indeed known to have had an inclination to prophetic dreams. This Thutmose's most celebrated accomplishment was the restoration of the Sphinx at Giza and subsequent commission of the Dream Stele. According to Thutmose's account on the Dream Stele, while the young prince was out on a hunting trip, he stopped to rest under the head of the Sphinx, which was buried up to the neck in sand. He soon fell asleep and had a dream in which the Sphinx told him that if he cleared away the sand and restored it he would become the next pharaoh.
Freud was not completely true perhaps, but his analysis carried a far deeper symbolism than he might have known. Akhenaten and Nefertiti were the few pharaohs in Egypt who let themselves be pictured together as a couple for a symbolic reason, although Akhenaten later on may have claimed to have been exclusively descended from both the masculine and feminine aspect of the solar deity, the Aten (or Aton; see: the 'atom', its reflection). Hence the many speculations about his sexual character, which was intentionally transformed towards that of a hermaphrodite, be it a rationalisation causing confusion, as all rationalisations do. This caused a conflict and possibly a separation with his wife, which according to history took place indeed, and this again was the basis of Freud's investigations. The subject of this book was not a distraction from his psychoanalytical studies but the basis of these.
Religion has always had much to do with sexuality, for we owe our life to it biologically while religion speaks of a spiritual origin at the same time, trying to harmonise these two. It has not always succeeded, and neither have we, to harmonise our physical and spiritual ancestry, or even define these to begin with, but many complexes may have been based on historical failures, our past examples and archetypes.
It is therefore significant that the famous bust of Nefertiti was already in the Antiquities collection of Berlin's Altes Museum during the rise to power of Adolf Hitler. While it was claimed by Egypt, Hitler claimed it as German forever. He fell in love with it and became insane. Nefertiti seemed to look like a typical Aryan and became a Nazi relic.
In 2003 the bust of Nefertiti underwent another tragedy after the many falsifications of her reign with Akhenaten, namely it received a contemporary body from a hired sculptor, based on some of her older-age representations from ancient Egypt and contrary to the taste of both ancient and modern-day Egypt and Nefertiti herself.
In this way we see the face of a young woman on the body of a somewhat worn-out long-distance runner with narrow thighs and hanging breasts, rather boring and tasteless, not even touristic.
It is true that many religions based on her since her reign have been misrepresentations, but one of the most marked misrepresentations was Nazi Germany. This can be no coincidence.
Exactly In this context ought to be interpreted the well-known curse of the pharaohs. It is true that Akhenaten had only six daughters and just one son, but the latter was not likely the adopted Moses, but Tutankhamun (originally Thutankhaten). The circumstance of six daughters was not yet enough for a curse.
Only when Thutankhamun became the last of this dynasty to be falsified and when he died as a result of being debased to a mere sporting relic, the curse of the pharaohs came into effect. One of the most pronounced consequences of this curse, which initially was a superficial fancy of journalists after the death of several of the excavators of Thutakhamun's tomb during the first world war, was really the second world war. The Egyptians were not silly about time.
Tutankhamun presumably had got isolated after the divorce and death of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. Sigmund Freud has had the intuition to take this historical drama as a source, at least measure, of modern psychological complexes.
It is not hardly a coincidence how Nefertiti has overseen Nazi Germany devastate the world and get devastated itself as if accomplishing an ancient revenge. The Germans were not the only ones at fault, but they certainly were the most tasteless.
Some of this can be found in the archives of history. Contemporary hypocrisy is not able yet to estimate the law of cause and effect. This is what Sigmund Freud has correctly understood and tried to help solve. He knew the roots, whatever his choice of words.
This hypocrisy is based on a suppressed sexuality, he says, rationalising our bisexual origin, rationalising away our dependence on the other from pride, arrogance and self-centredness.
People tend to spoil what was given them in their compulsory and reactionary conceit which the distinction of sex sought to overcome, not to enhance it as it is. Next to this they destroy the future for possibly coming generations, which more actually they will likely be themselves by their karma (the same compulsion).
It is only in the sexes that we can see how democratic nature really is. Science may try to achieve a completely democratic society based on the grievances of sexless and colourless people and create all sorts of abnormalities; these are Atlantean and cannot endure except in another cultural and physical abyss of mankind.
