i have decided to directly address the issue of conspiracy with you .

psyche, metaphor, literary constructions and the mystical

 

“Know verily that the purpose underlying all these symbolic terms and abstruse allusions, which emanate from the revealers of God’s holy cause, hath been to test and prove the peoples of the world; that thereby the earth of the pure and illuminated hearts may be known from the perishable and barren soil.” – Bahá’u’lláh

 

Early sacred religious text writers understood themselves to be working with psyche metaphor and literary constructions.

 

Early sacred religious text writers selectively and strategically cobbled together mystical literary themes.

 

Early sacred religious text writers demonstrate authorial command over the texts they revised, redacted, recombined, borrowed to create, and put forward as “right thinking”.

 

The initial core origin of religion was based on a visionary mode of experience, a dissociative state of consciousness, described metaphorically. This dissociative state of consciousness naturally produces themes of mystical experience incorporating and conjoining conscious concerns.

 

Early sacred religious text writers recognized and considered dissociative metaphor to be a major rule of religiously authoritative and legitimate writings. Although there are endless variations the general conceptual modes remained the same, forming a category of universal mystical metaphoric language, enabling initiates who were familiar with that mode of expression to readily understand each other without taking the concepts in the literal sense.

 

Early sacred religious text writers recognized and understood this strategy and

attempted to create metaphorical ideals that created, in turn, behavior that they socially desired.

 

Early sacred religious text writers expected the audience to read in the culturally normative manner, as metaphor hearkening back to the authoritative dissociative state of consciousness. When crafting the literary metaphors to express political ideas in terms of mystic experiencing, they felt completely free – not burdened by any restrictive concern for mere historical factuality – to utilize available respected symbolic archetypes combined in a traditional universal manner to forward their own political philosophy through the mystic dissociative mode of consciousness.
