    Newton's G-d

    Newton's God got hijacked on the way to truth and understanding pragmatic plans for HOPE in this very long dialogue between good people.

    http://brainmeta.com/forum/index.php...opic=3231&st=0

    "Faith is an openness and trusting attitude to truth and reality, whatever it may turn out to be. This is a risky and adventurous state of mind. Belief in the religious sense, is the opposite of faith - because it is a fervent wishing or hope, a compulsive clinging to the idea that the universe is arranged and governed in such and such a way. Belief is holding to a rock; faith is learning how to swim - and this whole universe swims in boundless space." - Alan Watts

    I see Newton as a man who gave his most and was only concerned for raising the consciousness of this world. He might have seemed weird or wired to those who do little but criticize his aloof ways. But if he had tried to garner acclaim or taken an activist role during his era, he would have been consumed by fires not of his own making, methinks.

    “There is no unreturn’d love,” wrote Walt Whitman, “the pay is certain one way or another.”

    Maybe Jesus said. "He who is least selfish is most selfish."

    I know the Mayans say "Do not put yourself in front of your Self."

    "Ignorance is Bliss, but I refuse to believe it is Blissful to be ignorant." So sayeth a great sage we are told was an alchemist named Socrates, but I believe it was known and said long before that.

    "HERESY: ITS MORALITY & UTILITY

    A PLEA and A JUSTIFICATION.

    CHAPTER I. INTRODUCTION

    What is heresy that it should be so heavily punished? Why is it that society will condone many offences, pardon many vicious practices, and yet have such scant mercy for the open heretic, who is treated as though he were some horrid monster to be feared and hated? Most religionists, instead of endeavouring with kindly thought to provide some solution for the difficulties propounded by their heretical brethren, indiscriminately confound all inquirers "in one common category of censure; their views are dismissed with ridicule as sophistical and fallacious, abused as infinitely dangerous, themselves denounced as heretics and infidels, and libelled as scoffers and Atheists." With some religonists all heretics are Atheists. With the Pope of Rome, Garibaldi and Mazzini are Atheists. With the Religious Tract Society, Voltaire and Paine were Atheists. Yet in neither of the above-named cases is the allegation true. Voltaire and Paine were heretics, but both were Theists. Garibaldi and Mazzini are heretics, but neither of them is an Atheist. With few exceptions, the heretics of one generation become the revered saints of a period less than twenty generations later. Lord Bacon, in his own age, was charged with Atheism, Sir Isaac Newton with Socinianism, the famous Tillotson was actually charged with Atheism, and Dr. Burnet wrote against the commonly received traditions of the fall and deluge. There are but few men of the past of whom the church boasts to-day, who have not at some time been pointed at as heretics by orthodox antagonists excited by party rancour. Heresy is in itself neither Atheism nor Theism, neither the rejection of the Church of Rome, nor of Canterbury, nor of Constantinople; heresy is not necessarily of any ist or ism. The heretic is one who has selected his own opinions, or whose opinions are the result of some mental effort; and he differs from others who are orthodox in this:—they hold opinions which are often only the bequest of an earlier generation unquestioningly accepted; he has escaped from the customary grooves of conventional acquiescence, and sought truth outside the channels sanctified by habit.

    Men and women who are orthodox are generally so for the same reason that they are English or French—they were born in England or France, and cannot help the good or ill fortune of their birth-place. Their orthodoxy is no higher virtue than their nationality. Men are good and true of every nation and of every faith; but there are more good and true men in nations where civilisation has made progress, and amongst faiths which have been modified by high humanising influences. Men are good not because of their orthodoxy, but in spite of it; their goodness is the outgrowth of their humanity, not of their orthodoxy. Heresy is necessary to progress; heresy in religion always precedes an endeavour for political freedom. You cannot have effectual political progress without wide-spread heretical thought. Every grand political change in which the people have played an important part, has been preceded by the popularisation of heresy in the immediately earlier generations.

    Fortunately, ignorant men cannot be real heretics, so that education must be the hand-maiden to heresy. Ignorance and superstition are twin sisters. Belief too often means nothing more than prostration of the intellect on the threshold of the unknown. Heresy is the pioneer, erect and manly, striding over the forbidden line in his search for truth. Heterodoxy develops the intellect, orthodoxy smothers it. Heresy is the star twinkle in the night, orthodoxy the cloud which hides this faint gleam of light from the weary travellers on life's encumbered pathway. Orthodoxy is well exemplified in the dark middle ages, when the mass of men and women believed much and knew little, when miracles were common and schools were rare, and when the monasteries on the hill tops held the literature of Europe. Heresy speaks for itself in this nineteenth century, with the gas and electric light, with cheap newspapers, with a thousand lecture rooms, with innumerable libraries, and at least a majority of the people able to read the thoughts the dead have left, as well as to listen to the words the living utter.

    The word heretic ought to be a term of honour; for honest, clearly uttered heresy is always virtuous, and this whether truth or error; yet it is not difficult to understand how the charge of heresy has been generally used as a means of exciting bad feeling. The Greek word [he etiq] which is in fact our word heresy, signifies simply, selection or choice. The he etiq philosopher was the one who had searched and found, who, not content with the beaten paths, had selected a new road, chosen a new fashion of travelling in the inarch for that happiness all humankind are seeking.

    Heretics are usually called "infidels," but no word could be more unfairly applied, if by it is meant anything more than that the heretic does not conform to the State Faith. If it meant those who do not profess the faith, then there would be no objection, but it is more often used of those who are unfaithful, and then it is generally a libel. Mahomedans and Christians both call Jews infidels, and Mahomedans and Christians call each other infidels. Each religionist is thus an infidel to all sects but his own; there is but one degree of heresy between him and the heretic who rejects all churches. Each ordinary orthodox man is a heretic to every religion in the world except one, but he is heretic from the accident of birth without the virtue of true heresy."

    In this research I doubt they have consulted a real alchemist. My lifelong significant other was a graduate of Indiana University and it is possible a few discussions I had were able to motivate this research. Note the code and ask why the Voynich Manuscript has had so few (if any, I unlike Wikipedia, do not consider McKenna as an alchemist, he could be termed a Hermeticist I suppose) alchemists work on it. It is an Alchemical text.

    "Isaac Newton, like Albert Einstein, is a quintessential symbol of the human intellect and its ability to decode the secrets of nature. Newton's fundamental contributions to science include the quantification of gravitational attraction, the discovery that white light is actually a mixture of immutable spectral colors, and the formulation of the calculus. Yet there is another, more mysterious side to Newton that is imperfectly known, a realm of activity that spanned some thirty years of his life, although he kept it largely hidden from his contemporaries and colleagues. We refer to Newton's involvement in the discipline of alchemy, or as it was often called in seventeenth-century England, "chymistry." Newton wrote and transcribed about a million words on the subject of alchemy. Newton's alchemical manuscripts include a rich and diverse set of document types, including laboratory notebooks, indices of alchemical substances, and Newton's transcriptions from other sources."

    I say Newton's ether is more integrated than modern over-unity or Tesla based concepts. It appears our pneuma and homeopathic approaches use more nature designs than our science fully understands. By using what works you by-pass what must be done to explain in detail what is happening.

    Although I do not go so far as to say we have too much Tesla - it is true we do not have enough Reich. And it is even more true that we don't have enough Faraday which you can read Reich used to develop his orgone accumulator in the following article. Both Reich and Faraday had a more realistic and integrated spiritual philosophy. Orgone energy or cosmic thought fields and Pyramid Power such as Leedskalnin used is very interesting to say the least. Orgone is what works with Epigenetics and Emotu's water crystals.

    "The Ether is Not Stationary.

    A Stationary Ether was disproved by the Michelson-Morley Experiment. What Was Left Was a Dynamic Ether Too Difficult to Describe with 19th Century Mathematics,

    Why Einstein’s Math Became Popular, & Where Wilhelm Reich’s Orgonometry Comes In.

    The dilemma of a resurgence of interest in Nikola Tesla’s works with little regard for, or understanding of those of Wilhelm Reich is manifold. Increasing specialization in electronics compartmentalizes related sciences of common root in philosophy. A greater focus on electrical theory as a means to manipulate nature, while omitting naturalist observation, defeats its own purpose. Not only did Reich invent math for solving problems on the ether, in simple, common terms, he unified diverging branches of “sub-atomic” physics with the more grandiose cosmological sciences. Reich unified biology with physics itself, from a basis in medical psychiatry. Of the countless mental & physical illnesses related to emerging technologies that are proving unsafe, many could be avoided if more people were aware of Reich’s pre-kindergarden-like math, orgonometry, which bridges electro-physics to life energy sciences such as holistic medicine.

    The existence of a primary life energy, orgone, at the root of all other energetic phenomena, calls into question our electro-chemical theories of neurology, diet, renewable energy and green technology. Many developers of over-unity technology may be familiar DC pulsed motors, but how many are working on ones that run on cosmic life energy?

    The problem of rampant social disease, fascism and authoritarianism, can hardly be resolved by studying the works of an engineer in the habit of dealing with Nazis, whose inventions include a “Death-Ray,” the pre-cursor to our modern “Particle Beam Accelerators.” If anything, Reich’s theory of the emotional plague and the emotional desert, exemplified by James DeMeo’s saharasian hypothesis, coupled with subjective impressions of oppressive feelings by those studying “nuclear” and other forms of electromagnetic radiation in The ORANUR Experiment, offer a clue as to why electrical power first gained popularity in the hearts of 19th Century empire. Electricity is still fundamental to the power elite’s social structure, while the gentle bio-energetics of orgonomy & other life energy sciences are continued humbly by grassroots, peaceful orgnizations, and persecuted by power brokers & drug companies, as in China Falun Gong, homeopathic medicine & orgonomy.

    Einstein was involved, not only with Leopold Infeld in the botched job of reviewing Reich’s infamous To-T experiment, but also with Robert Shankland in concealing Dayton Miller’s positive results for the Michelson Morley Experiment on Mt. Wilson. Einstein’s involvement with Robert Shankland in concealing Miller’s positive results protected not only his & Shankland’s positions as tenured professors, but also protected mainstream physics from the public knowledge that the available math wasn’t sophisticated enough to accommodate nature. As is often the case, fact is discarded in favor of theory, when the theory is easier to describe in simple terms. But the ether is not stationary! A stationary ether was disproved by the Michelson-Morley experiment. What was left was a dynamic ether too difficult to describe with 19th Century mathematics, which is why Einstein’s math became popular, & why Wilhelm Reich’s orgonometry is such a valuable, if overlooked, contribution to biophysics.

    Tesla, imperfect, human, is a fascinating character who need not be overlooked for his important role in history, but neither should he be idolized as a great savior or revered as a polymathic genius, when his inventions that spawned modern radio & television became the heart of the propaganda machine used to enslave people’s minds to this day, out of his own willingness to work with shadow government operatives, like J.P. Morgan who funded Hitler & ended betraying Tesla worse than had Edison or Westinghouse. If there is one lesson the reader can learn from Wilhelm Reich in this regard, it is that hero-worship & idolatry are core aspects of the emotional plague and fascism of any color, red (Soviet) or black (Nazi) as Reich termed them in the 1933 book that landed him on both Hitler’s and Stalin’s Death Lists, The Mass Psychology of Fascism: Reich being hated by some because he rejected the hero worship of the public, is a paired function of the emotional plague with Mussolini’s being hated for accepting public idolatry. Neither Reich nor Mussolini ended well, but it was the emotional plague of mankind that put them both on pedestals, then tore them down."

    The admission of Newton as an alchemist by modern science is good, but they still do not tell you what alchemy really is.

    "Newton’s recipe for alchemists’ mercury rediscovered

    The document, which dates back to the seventeenth century was handwritten by Isaac Newton himself and explains the fundamental part of the process to create the mythical Philosopher’s Stone, a substance that alchemists believed could transmute base metals into gold.

    The document contains text copied from another alchemist’s writings as well as descriptions of Newton’s own experiments © Courtesy of the Chemical Heritage Foundation

    The document was previously located for decades in a private collection but last month, the alchemical manuscript was acquired by the Chemical Heritage Foundation from the United Statis, who aims at making the ancient manuscript available to the public.

    According to website Chemistry World, ‘Philosophic mercury was [thought to be] a substance that could be used to break down metals into their constituent parts,’ explains James Voelkel, the CHF’s curator of rare books. ‘The idea is if you break the metals down you can then reassemble them and make different metals.’ The process was part of the effort to make the philosopher’s stone, he adds, a mythical substance that alchemists believed could turn lead into gold.

    Translated from Latin, the manuscript title is: ‘Preparation of the [Sophick] Mercury for the [Philosophers’] Stone by the Antimonial Stellate Regulus of Mars and Luna from the Manuscripts of the American Philosopher’. The manuscript is believed to describe the necessary process to make ‘sophick’ – short for ‘philosophic’ – mercury.

    Researchers are not sure whether Newton ever tried to create the substance, even though, knowing the work of the genius and his interest in the esoteric subjects, they are inclined to say yes.

    Isaac Newton was one of the most important scientists of the past and is best known for his formulation of the laws of universal gravitation and great influence in the world of physics He was also an enthusiastic alchemist. In fact, the manuscript in question also briefly describes one of his experiments in this field of hidden knowledge.

    ‘It’s often the case with Newton’s manuscripts that if they lie around long enough he turns them over and writes something else on the back,’ says Voelkel. ‘In this case, there is a note of an experiment that he did. It’s a recipe for distilling a volatile spirit out of lead ore … which corresponds nicely with Newton’s interpretation of various alchemical authors.’

    Chemistry World reports that the author of the original sophick mercury paper was a well-known alchemist at the time known as Eirenaeus Philalethes.

    While scholars are unsure when exactly it was written, the estimate that Newton’s copy of Philalethes’ sophick mercury text could even possibly pre-date the first known printed version, published in 1678.

    It’s probably the case that he was copying a manuscript that existed before the publication of the printed work,’ says Voelkel. ‘The manuscript he’s copying has, at least, one mistake in it. At some point, the author writes the Latin word ‘ex’ which means ‘out of’ instead of ‘et’ which means ‘and’ – Newton recognises this as being a mistake and corrects it in square brackets. In the printed source this has been corrected.’

    ‘The collection is gigantic … the estimate of Newton’s alchemical output is something like a million words in his own hand. This is just another little page in a corpus of hundreds and hundreds of documents,’ said Voelkel."
