Descriptions

The writings contain a somewhat different view of the world around us that is believed to be consistent with the Judeo-Christian writings we already have. It is however a different way to look at the same things we already have. It fills in the gaps a little differently than we are used to. It’s a little more uplifting than the traditional approach. In fact, we think it is actually enjoyable, even for people who don’t even think about God much. It explores many of the concepts from the Old Testament that seem to portray God as a mean, vindictive, demanding sort of person who wants nothing but your worship, obedience and blind unquestioning devotion, and one who will punish the hell out of you if you don’t do it.

Maybe He’s not that way. Maybe we just don’t understand. Maybe He just got some “bad press” back then.

If you are totally satisfied with the explanations you have been given by those people who you have put your faith and trust in, then stop here. We don’t want to change something you are happy with, no matter what that may be.

But, if you have some questions, or if you are just looking for something in your life, then stay with us for a while. Or, if you’ve lost your faith in God because your current readings don’t seem to make sense all of the time, perhaps there are explanations that do make sense. Maybe the old stories we have been given do make sense, and we just don’t know it because we don’t have all of the facts.

We ask you to consider the possibility that God is a happy guy, and wants us to be happy too.

If you think about God at all, you should probably read the book.

If you don’t think about God at all, and don’t care, you should definitely read the book.

Maybe it’s not God who is unhappy, contradictory, inconsistent, and downright illogical. Maybe the problem is in us. Could that be true?! Heaven forbid!

So, if you are ok with believing what a certain group of “elders” say, who you don’t even know, and if you are satisfied with explanations that are “sometimes” contradictory, inconsistent, and downright illogical, then stop now and don’t ever read this book.

If you are ok with a life view that has a God who is not happy unless He is worshiped constantly and spends a lot of time and energy punishing humans (dead and alive), stop now and don’t ever read this book.

If you are not open to the idea that humans beings might not be as smart as they think they are, stop now and don’t ever read this book.

If you don’t think good old fashioned fun has a place in your life any more, stop now and don’t ever read this book. In fact, don’t even worry about it. You should worry more about whether your life is really worth living!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The writings are presented as some possibly ancient documents (probably not ancient, but maybe old)(but maybe new) that have been translated into English, and which the author came upon. There are some introductory comments by the author, and some comments at the end. We have decided to make it available to others, of course with the author’s permission. We doubt if you have ever viewed the story of mankind in this way before, at least publicly.

We don’t care what this book is – fiction, ancient documents, divine revelation, ….. You can assume that it is fiction, but we don’t really care. The problem is that the writings might just be accurate. It might also be inspired. Could it be old? Ultimately though it’s just a collection of words, put in a certain order, that may give you a little lift. Or, may change your attitude toward life.

It may also offend you. But we don’t care about that either. Someone is offended by almost everything that has ever been written. Maybe it should offend you. Maybe we hope it offends you. Some people need to be offended.

Some parts of this description sound like we are trying to convert you into some religious belief. But we are not trying to get you to convert to anything. We don’t have anything for you to convert into. Some people may get strengthened in their current beliefs, while others may get weaker. Some may just laugh, while others may get offended. And again, we don’t care. It’s just something the author received, and decided to share. We can’t just give it away, because then we couldn’t afford to get it printed. We are simply trying to sell a few books, pay our bills, and perhaps give some people a new way of looking at life, religion, and their relationship with things that go beyond…..

Perhaps what we have is just a thought…..

 

A Thought on A Thought

A thought 
is just a thought: 
just something to think about; 
nothing more and nothing less.

But a thought must be thought to be a thought.
And thinking is an act, 
and all acts have consequences.

And a thought can be ignored, 
and ignoring something, also is an act.

And, a thought can be enjoyed.

So a thought that is only something to think about, 
nothing more and nothing less, 
is always more, when you stop to think about it.

When a thought thinks itself, some call it God. 
When God thinks a thought, some call it a universe.

(h)why 
is not a literary work
(h)why 
is just a thought.

A Thought, Or Two, Or More, On The Truth

To find truth you must persevere.
If you want the truth, seek it, 
but if you seek the truth at all, 
you must seek it all the way to the end.

If part of a thing cannot be the thing, 
then part of a truth cannot be the truth.

The truth may not make sense 
until you know the whole truth.

Either read it all, 
or don’t read it at all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you see a thing for the first time 
you can see something you did not see before.
If you look at the same thing again, 
you can see something you did not see before.

~~~~~~~~~

{There is some poetry in there, but it is not all poetry 
(even the poetry is not all poetry!).}

~~~~~~~

In any quest for the truth, you must be prepared 
to accept things that you might not want to accept, 
and to give up things that you may want to cling to.

The back cover of the book reads:

With a look at our present world, some things will appear to be ridiculous, some things will appear to be esoteric and profound, and some things will appear to be somewhere in between. Sometimes the ridiculous is found side by side with the esoteric and profound, and sometimes both appear to be inextricably intertwined. With a look at an individual life, or with a look at the history that has been reported to us, sometimes that which was once considered to be ridiculous was later considered to be esoteric and profound, and sometimes that which was once considered to be esoteric and profound was later considered to be ridiculous. Mankind, in its own way, may judge this work to be in fact the least important work of our times. But then again, how often down through history has mankind, in its own way, been wrong ?

One entry in the translator’s notes states:

10. There was a symbol at various places in the source materials that was not translated. The symbol consists of a non-typical juxtaposition of certain other symbols (“sub-symbols”). They are used together only as a “heading” on each of the documents. Therefore the meaning of the combination is not certain. The original translation did not translate it, but merely repeated it where it appeared in the source materials. The same has been done here. Based on the translation of the “sub-symbols” in other parts of the translation, the following possibilities are proposed.

The subparts are as follows:

….sometimes translated as “to make”, and other times as “get together” or “connect together”;
…sometimes translated as “up”, or “above”, and other times translated to denote “God” or “heaven”, depending on context;
…..could translate as either “all”, or “entire” or “the entirety” as in a collection of things or writings.
……..could translate as either “to send down” or “to pass down” (to another), or “to put down” as in writing, but also as in placing somewhere (implicitly on Earth) or in a certain position.

 

 

It is reproduced here for comment:

 

Literally this symbol could be interpreted as “made above (by God), and all passed (or put or written) down on Earth”, which could be translated today as “inspired writing from God”, but literally could also be translated as “written by God and placed (on Earth)” or “written in heaven and sent (to Earth)” (or variations of that idea). Alternatively, the symbol could simply be translated as “made it all up and wrote it down”, which could mean “fiction”. As a third possibility, it could just be some kind of an ancient “happy face”, has no substantive meaning, and I am trying to read a meaning into something that had no meaning when it was written. This is not being proposed as a joke, or to make light of the material, but only as a possibility based on the content of the materials.

 

The writings themselves start:

IN THE BEGINNING, as you know it anyway, when some things didn’t seem to vibrate at the same speed as they may now appear, was when the Lord God made the place called Earth; a place where humans live. He made the whole universe, and He put things in it that are here and there, and now and then, and things that grow and change and develop, and things that push and pull, and go back and forth, and up and down,… all within certain arbitrary boundaries that He happened to pick for this particular part of this particular universe. And thus it was that for this part of this particular universe, in order to make things grow and change and develop, He made a system that separated them in time and place. And after He made it the Lord God said to himself “That’s good enough for now.”1

The footnote reads:

1 The thought as written is ambiguous. The actual words and phrases used are: (a) “it” or “that” or “things” (b) “completed” or “sufficient” or “enough”; (c) “now” (after completion); and (c) “good” ; It could be translated as: “Now, it (the things completed) is good”. However, it can just as correctly be translated “That is good enough for now.” Based on the remainder of the text, the second translation was deemed to be more accurate and retained.
