Re: [anthroposophy_tomorrow] Artificial installation
- Well, that Apophis is a little strange to me...one thing that was interesting was that he was thought of as a head made of flynt...that would be Ahriman...well what Ahriman can look like with his pointy features.....These instances noted as artificial intelligence are just too strange for me to consider really....in so far as a physical presence like being abducted etc. Paul speaks of extraterestrials but its much different than what I was reading of what was offered up here...When I was around 18, and i've said this before, I saw a spaceship it followed me around till I got home. It hovered to my right all the way and years later I've always wondered if maybe it was just the moon that I was seeing on each corner of the turn home, there were three corners to turn in a two mile or so ride or three mile or so ride.Looking at what LKH brings I think there is something to be said for an appearance of such ships if you want to call them that, but I think to think they could physically take one away I would have to say that seems very very far fetched from what I saw. It's almost like saying that the Mary's were carried up bodily....and Jesus for that matter. I imagine something can happen with the thinking or maybe an experience where mind meeting might be able to occur. I really do not know but as far as full on physical abductions I think that is misunderstood.All good things,Dottie"Hence only by means of love can we give real help for karma to work out in the right way."

The artificial installation of Don Juan might be better considered as an indwelling intelligence that ultimately needs to be replaced.
The intelligence in this case operates the defense systems for the human - controlling as much space around the human as possible, and when threatened, progressively sacrificing all: possessions, relationships and even the physical body in order to maintain its core which is self-image.
The intelligence forces the human to get its act together. When achieved this is equivalent to non-transcending self-actualisation in the Maslow sense. The intelligence may be classified by the metaphysicist as personal will
The human however has an urge to connect with and expressive higher forces, and this is opposed by the personal will which has had life times to develop a wide range of defences including provision of illusory meditation experiences.
After a number of lifetimes of effort the human may transcend personal will and the intelligence is reformed and used for creative endeavours.
As for the heel, I might suggest consideration of:
- the trampling under the left foot by ancient Egyptians (including by the Widow Isis) of wax images of Apopis (depicted as a serpent)
- the role of the King of Terrors in the Book of Job
- trampling the King of Terrors in the MM ritual
