The Middle Path of Epicurus
- Lucre warm water is between hot and cold, a fulcrum if you will between
two extreme states: that which is Ahrimanic and that which is
Luciferic. Yet all but Epicureans spew it from their mouths.
The healthy and the strong seek hot or cold, and reject lucre warm.
Their "golden mean" lies not within the narrow, self-protective middle
path of Epicurus. Their middle path exists within Life, where
everywhere exists the dance of opposites.
Jesus spewed lucre warm water from his mouth, but he may as well spewed
the Epicurean---the Late Civilization Man, the hedonist, proud,
contumely, yet satisfied, fatted for the slaughter of Time.
