All of this resonates so much with me. As for the doctrine of original sin, it’s a church doctrine for sure. As a Muslim there is no such doctrine possible because the Quran states that God forgave Adam and Eve right there in the garden and even gave them words to use for repentance. Because they admitted their mistake and felt bad about it. So that was lesson number one on how to use that amazing mind because we were created and born to learn not to be condemned. I used to be Christian until I realized all that entailed. Although I have no problem with ppl if all faiths. Some manage to be good ppl in one way or another. The Quran really emphasizes truth and Justice and I know Jesus did the same. The problem is always with those in power who will always try to corrupt anything they can. True in Islam as well. Your kindness and honesty count for everything.
Being shaken off our spiritual foundation seems to be the modus operandi in this realm as currently configured.
I would agree, it is not really supposed to be like this.
Either way--as your guest, Thomas Harrington, seems to be saying--the attempt to hold us down (with knee on the neck by whomever or by whatever means) is just not "sustainable, diverse or equitable." It cannot last. It is bankrupt at its core.
Our essence, which is the driving force of creation, functions as fully funded and real.
Original sin was half of a two-sided squeeze play.
Side 1 rewrote the Gospels (and memoryholed the actual text) to say that Jesus was rich and powerful just like the bishops and popes. Thus the wicked bishops and popes inherited all of their wealth and power directly from Jesus.
Side 2 instructed the peasants that they were NOT part of the holy succession. Natural peasant evil needed to be confessed every week to the Jesus-descended priests.
Side 2 was the important part because it gave the priests blackmail power along with their "inherited" and unarguable right to wealth and wickedness.
Modern Deepstates always develop a similar doctrine.
Side 1 is expertise and meritocracy. We have the degrees and the accreditation, so we have inherent power.
The web is the modern confessional, infinitely more powerful than the old style because the peasants are confessing 24/7 with no ability to withhold sins from the priesthood.
Your writing is absolutely brilliant, I totally resonate with it,thanks,you are an oasis in the media desert 👍
""we in cities can live in fantasy for many years - but it eventually gets you"
got me, that's for sure.
thanks for introducing me to TH - that interview was the bomb, that part about allowing the simulacra of the spectacle to take over, wow. my dinner with andre: we're all onstage and we're all prisoners of our own devices. and completely disconnected from source.
psyched to see you getting igor to unleash his inner comic!
We need to popularize a new phrase: vaccines as a service or VaaS. For the non-tech folks, this is picking up the subscription concept, specifically that in tech referred to as Saas (software) and Baas (Banking), where paid subscriptions are the arrangement for accessing tech. No to VaaS. It is very interesting to think about the mass vax campaign in this light.
William James, brother of Henry James, philosopher at Harvard believed that to maintain a national spirit we needed to do war. Just as we did war for control of our external natural systems, this war is against our own biological nature in every perverse and corruptable way. This will end badly I predict.
Great article, and looking forward to watching the interview later. Also really looking forward to the one with Igor. This was a powerful line from Thomas's essay for me "puts the individual in defensive and ultimately supplicatory postures".
Edward Calabrese has documented the steps by which a new field of original determination or genetic dogma, (initially studying radiation as an evolutionary mutagen) was falsified to assert:
1. That such had been found. 2. That there is no safer dose, and that damage is cumulative to a fixed system that could degrade but could not self repair.
(Note the underlying Fabian closed system entropic mindset that seeks & finds its own reinforcement - a variant of normalised sin where life is war set by death and power struggle competes the game of musical chairs and pass the parcel of sacrifice)
Back to the falsified backstory...
The piggybank of a cumulative damage model with no dosage deemed safe or repairable became known as Linear No Threshold risk modelling - LNT. It was almost entirely based on fruit flies receiving upwards of 100 million times background radiation.
The claim to mutagenic effect was in time revealed to be chromosomal damage - there are no mutagenic effects from the various radiation exposures such as Japan or Chernobyl - None!
Far more death from suicidal despair via nocebo fear than radiation.
The body was found in time to have self repairing capacities regarding 'damaged DNA', but the Rockefeller funded and guided science dropped radiation as it focus for hyping Fear to drive regulatory capture, to push cancer fear as modelled to result from the official imposition of LNT in place of safe dose level response - or indeed an as yet suppressed awareness of hormetic effect (benefit rising from adaptive evolutionary response to environmental challenge).
The Media was used to sow the casting of life as genetically fragile using fear driven narratives that hugely inflated risk along with guilting agencies or industries cast as evils, such as to subject otherwise wealthy or powerful institutions to follow the regulations. A precautionary principle of projected (and manipulated) fears was set as virtue as if backed by solid science.
The fearful cleave unto and support their 'protector', with little if any sense of being manipulated by false beliefs that deliver unto evils of a mind-set under regulatory capture - for any disquiet or dissonance can be assigned to the evils from which to be 'made safe'.
While the falsification of the science runs the general nature of human bias set in competition and the face of success in fame & fortune, or simply to maintain status & funding, but the Rockefeller funded Commission used the hyping of radiation fear to fund and direct a specific means to bring all other disciplines or institutions under genetic control - via redefining the basis and nature of life into predictive modelling to the application of zero tolerance.
Despite & regardless any revelation of falsity for setting the LNT model, its ratcheting into regulatory capture is set in the fear-conditioned identity of controls set by demonised fears into collectivised identities of disproportionate and displaced risks accepted and reacted to as reality.
While the stricture of its protection constricts and paralyses its prey to the venom of its final solution. Zero tolerance for risk made safe by death. Or at least the religion of a belief in death as power over life set in hate & fear as unworthy.
This my sketch to prompt the reader.
There are various interviews with Calabrese but I found the series that traces out the history to allow both detail and implication to integrate to understanding.
Its underlying message is very much aligned with what I read here.
Following the revealing to a refining of our question is not a battle so much as the recognition and release of a lens of conflict by which we did not see.

I like it. Think I will use henceforth.
I loved this conversation so much! What an exquisite pair of minds and hearts. Anna Funda is an Australian writer who wrote "Stasiland", having lived in Berlin. Her own story is quite amazing too.
Great writing. Happy to find you.
Brownstone Institute is interesting. 'Make Language Great Again' "Words Are Weapons"
What a beautiful discussion, and so refreshing.
Olá Thomas... É bom saber que aprendeste Português (Mirandês não?) restando apenas descobrir que conclusões retiras do que conheces de Portugal.
Thank you, Tessa! This was a wonderful exploration between two brilliant, compassionate beings!
