Age is a Purgatory, Youth is our Salvation

Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, But to be young was very heaven!
— William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

The titled responsion is untethered time, travelling through existence away from a state of grace, however Christian that may sound is a slowing death of knowledge acquisition.

It seems that we all believe differently about whether or not age is a Purgatory, a place of pain and suffering. Some say it is the worst part of life; that it is something we have to endure to the best of our ability before we can experience the higher planes of life. Others say that there is no pain in life; that it is just a stage we must pass through before the light shines on us.

In truth there is no pain in the human body and soul, for no one is here to suffer or die. We are here to be happy and healthy and live a great life.

The question is then, what is the difference between suffering and death? What separates our experience from that of other animals and plants?

This is a good question because we know that there is no pain in existence. Pain is a product of disease. The pain we feel from the diseases and ailments that plague our bodies is a gift from God. God has given us the gift of healing and the ability to survive even if the illness or ailment is incurable.

Age is the progression of this sickness and disease into an advancing state of consciousness. As we get older, we become aware that we have been around disease and illness before and we begin to heal by self-reflection. However, as we mature our consciousness increases and we begin to notice that our lives are much better than they were in childhood. We begin to realize that we are healthy, strong, and in control of our own destinies.

If there were no pain, there would be no age. That is, we would be able to heal and move forward without any suffering. When we begin to move toward this understanding, it becomes easier to understand what happens to those of us who do not move forward, because sickness and disease continue to increase. As we age, we become less healthy and stronger.

If there was no age, then all those who are still young would become aged, because they would not have any years to heal and continue to move forward. toward the light. They would be more like the blinds which shut them out from the light of God. We would be left behind forever.

Suffering is a part of life and the ageing process; it is inevitable. We will eventually suffer from sickness and disease and in that period of time, we will be in need of our Creator. Our Creator is our greatest healer and will heal us. We will be given over to the light and become the person He created us to be in Him.

Once we are healed by our Creator, we are no longer dependent on other people to help us find the Light. No matter what our age is, we can be free to find the Light and live a life full of peace, love, and joy. There is no reason why we cannot enjoy the fruits of our labour and continue to move forward with God's help.

The process of suffering will continue until we reach God and He removes our sufferings. We will become as we move forward. into an endless state of healing, which will give us new energy and wisdom. We will also become the individual we were made for.

This is what life means when we move forward with age. We have become so old that there is no reason for us to suffer anymore. We have no need for pain.

Age is the way to the Light. When we are old and suffer, we become so old that we feel as if there is no hope. for a new beginning in our lives. But old age is nothing but a place where we are so old that we feel as if we are lost in time, in death.

Defend Till the End, Always on Your Side

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)

Looking up for a father figure is a good rule of thumb for many creatures, language animals included. Transcendental self-imaging is unique to the Sapien virus. Look what we have become, dominating this kingdom at the expense of our own possible extinction.

The rejection of guidance is a distinct characteristic, a refusal to submit to a higher force and a desire for autonomy. From wild beasts to language-bearers, this inclination persists. And yet, unlike other creatures, the sapien virus lacks the ability to transcend the physical realm and self-image beyond it. We remain subject to the kingdom of nature, unable to dominate or control it. But our humility comes at a cost, a hindrance to our progress and evolution. In our rejection of power and control, we risk stagnation and decline, failing to reach our full potential. The key to our success lies in recognizing our unique abilities and harnessing them to improve ourselves and the world around us.

Yet when we die (prematurely) we say, 'our fathers lied?'

All we have of freedom all we use or know This our fathers bought for us, long and long ago.
Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

The titled responsion is a sad state of affairs when the years that should have been taken from us.

I am referring to someone who dies prematurely. In the case of our current situation, the outlook is bleak or so the neo-liberal world order tells us. The acronym is NWO and also stands for New World Order. What side of history are we painting? Is it one dominated by Nationalism or global equity for all?

I've recently come to realize, no consideration would be a better word, that the allusion to equality for all is antithetical to the way things will likely unfold.

Let's say I was going to write a book with this thesis, how would I structure the book? First of all, I would have to point out that throughout human history the ideal of world pieces is reconciled through conflict and liberation. So what makes the coming climate catastrophe any different?

So it is decided. I am going to write this book. You've read it here first.

Spoiler Alert; the book is called Spoiler Alert: The Probability of Survival (2022). I will use the book to further develop my three-part notation of individual, group and omniscient perspectives. Stay tuned!

Nice move jackass, now look at the mess we are left with

In the beginning, the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

The titled responsion is "Nice move jackass, now look at the mess we are left with". What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

Our collective history or written account of humanity's story is a fictive imagining with and without substance. Acknowledging the half-life of the metaphor when compared to the cumulative knowledge structures we now know categorically demands acknowledgement and distance from the dogmas they demand. For me, this is a bridge over the troubled waters of science and the humanities moving in productive counterpoint and counterfactual imagining.

At the dawn of time, the Universe sprang into being. But this event, as magnificent as it was, had unintended consequences. Many were left feeling bewildered and betrayed, their anger bubbling up at the injustice of it all. The creation of the Universe, once seen as a grand and wondrous act, was now viewed with suspicion and disdain. Its very existence became a source of conflict and strife, with some seeking to undo it entirely. The perception of this event as a misstep has become a widespread belief, a testament to the precariousness of creation itself.

The sheer vastness of the Universe can be overwhelming to the human mind, and the question of its creation has puzzled and inspired scientists, philosophers, and theologians alike. Some view it as a stroke of luck, a fortuitous accident that has allowed life to thrive on our planet. Others see it as a divine act, a deliberate and purposeful creation by a higher power. And yet, there are those who view it as a cosmic joke, a cruel and senseless act that has led to the suffering and chaos that we see in our world.

Regardless of one's perspective, the fact remains that we are here, existing in this vast and mysterious cosmos. And perhaps the greatest wonder of all is the human capacity to ponder these questions, to seek meaning and purpose in the midst of the unknown. For it is in this pursuit that we find our greatest joys and deepest sorrows, our most profound insights and our most humbling limitations. So let us embrace the mystery of the Universe, and in doing so, discover the beauty and complexity of our own existence.
