One of the primary tools of atheists is to use the statement flying spaghetti monster as a way to invalidate the existence of a pre-existing God. My personal belief has shifted so much that I have a hard time associating with atheists or theists, but regardless when I see this come up I can’t help but cringe. The first reason is the idealistic God, not the god of religion, is something worth believing in regardless of its current existence. In the same way I can believe in world peace even though it currently does not exist.
The problem with fsm or comparing God to any fictional entity is that God, specifically Elohim, is intangible and fsm if it did exist would be tangible. For instance if Santa actually existed I would be able to touch him, this isn’t the case of god. So saying God is as real as fsm is a logical fallacy, one could say God is as real as karma, but the fsm argument is apples and oranges.
It is very important to all theists to believe in a pre-existing destination, God is also used as a way of rationalizing and justifying pain. This is less of my concern, I am more interested in the concept’s power and if a destination already exists, great, even better.
Of the three branches of ultimate human aspiration, Love is the most emotional. In fact it is so powerful that most people would choose to rather define it, while others try to reduce its importance and effects by explaining it over scientifically or saying it is simple chemicals. However, the human aspiration of love is one of the most currently known important aspirations there is. While reduction may seem naive, the primary trait of love and philanthropy is giving. Unfortunately in our current state we are incapable of pure love or pure giving, since even the purest form of giving has the selfish intent of try to improve the world which would ultimately affect the individual expressing the love.
Our selfishness to improve the world for ourselves by improving it for others is not a bad thing however, it is the driving force behind Elolight, and the latent selfishness will be present until such time we arrive at the ultimate destination. That said, all philanthropy should only be done for one true reason, you do to others as you would want done to yourself. If Love and philanthropy is expressed as a means of gaining power, recognition, or any other purpose besides improving the world from one self, corruption can quickly arise. We all know someone who uses Love and Philanthropy in such a way, to make themselves look righteous or to improve their personal quality of life, and I am sure those who have been exposed to such individuals know how easily it is for them to turn against you or act in corrupt ways. The true value of Philanthropy to Elolight is improving the world for oneself by improving it for all others, not in short term gains.
One of the most damaging concepts to human Elolight is the idea of free will. When we are presented with a choice, and have a list of ways we can choose to react, we believe we have some kind of greater power over destiny and life then we actually we have. We did not choose the body, brain, parents, location, or situations that went into making a choice, but the moment we make a choice we suddenly believe we had some external power over the choice we made. Humans will often say things like, “I should of” or “I could of” but these statements are always invalid because what you did is what you would of always done given the same set of variables. These retroactive statements don’t give you any power over the choices you have already made, unless you suddenly gain the power to time travel.
Imagine for a moment we are watching a lion pack from space, based on weather, food, and other variables we can figure out to a decent degree of success what the lions will do tomorrow. The lion however has no idea exactly what it is going to do tomorrow, it only thinks it knows. The only difference with us is we are not aware of all the variables that go into making decisions, but regardless of if we know what they are or not, you had no choice picking them. The idea of free will exists so that we react, and also to let us believe we have control. We are moving towards Elolight whether we like it or not, no amount of religious texts, atheist texts, or any other belief short of complete human destruction will stop us from progressing towards Elolight, the only question is if we will get there.
Why It is Dangerous
Religions use the expression of free will to gain followers for better or worse. A person sitting in a church pew will be told it is there “choice” to convert to a religion however they had no power over sitting in their chair, and in order to feel like they have power they will convert to the religion and believe they are doing the right thing for both themselves and humanity. The paradox is that religion has no problem expressing the idea of fate when it comes to miracles and good things. However the moment a religious person is faced with a bad circumstance they begin to pray for things to change.
People are only interested in believing they have no control if the world is acting in the favor. The biggest danger is that when humans come to believe the universe is controllable in a way dictated by free will, their consciousness binds on to this concept and if they are presented with the fact that they are not in control, and can actually accept it, they could have a psychological breakdown.
Don’t Stop Reacting
Life is beautiful, and the biggest beauty is in the experience. There is also a beauty in ignorance, we don’t know what will happen tomorrow, and that is not a bad thing; That in itself is worth living for.
When looking for answers people will always find them, whether they are wrong or right is determined by who the person is influenced by, and their external perception (whether others think they are correct) is determined by faith or belief in something. Faith in the divine, or belief in the natural. The fight between belief and faith has been on going since the dawning of civilization; the core argument point boils down to a core concept, whether real or fake, which flows through everything and that is the concept of God.
The problem of the current concept of God is that it changes interpretation based on the person being communicated to. Through a significant amount of cultural influences, even if you’re an atheist, when the term ‘God’ is heard things will flow to mind both abstract and literal which ultimately has very little to do with human ascension and discovery. You might think of angels, Jesus, zeus, satan, or whatever possibly tangible mythical creatures have been associated with the concept of God in an attempt to pull something into our universe which was never supposed to be. The true power of the God concept was what God was not, not what could or should be.
Elolight is a re-imaging and expansion of the God concept, Elolight is not God, it is something far more. The term derives from two words “Elohim” the name of God(s) in hebrew, and light. The first word representing the intangible God concepts, and the second word representing the core essence of all life and revelation. When defining Elolight, I have defined three grammatical usages of the word which the word means Simultaneously.
1. Verb: Ascension
This represents the human’s capability or the possibility of consciousness leaving the human body. Further ascension also represents gaining new levels of comprehension that we currently do not possess. In addition, it also represents the process of accomplishing the previous tasks.
2. Noun: Destination
The destination could be considered ‘God’ however in the process of Eolight new levels of comprehension would be obtained, making our current understandings or beliefs in the destination invalid. One could use the term Elolight to refer to all previous unsophisticated manifestations of the God concept such as Jesus, Zeus, or Thor as primitive elolight. However, it is very important to understand that primitive Elolight is not Elolight, and Elolight does not possess human characteristics or tangibility.
3. Adjective: Quality
The third usage represents defining things which go into Elolight. For instance love could be described as highly Elolightistic. It helps define things which contribute to ascension, and the destination.
Elolight represents a destination, and the purpose of the concept is to encourage the forward motion of humanity. Every branch of humanity, science, philanthropy, and art all represent a process of Elolight for obtaining the current epitomes of human aspiration. At the current time these would be logic (science), love (philanthropy), and maps (art). However as we approach Elolight, further aspiration will emerge as we gain levels of aspiration, ideas I will explore in further blog posts.
