The competition between the two forces can be succinctly expressed as follows: Within groups selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals. Or, risking oversimplification, individual selection promoted sin, while group selection promoted virtue.from The Meaning of Human Existence
“The kind of events that once took place will by reason of human nature take place again.” Thucydides

"... New faiths have to be grafted upon old ones. All great teachers have built upon the past traditions of the race. They have to come to lead. They alter and adapt the Eternal Ancient Wisdom to the peculiar needs of that race, to the particular Message which that race is destined to leave for humanity. So also the Lord Zoroaster found a certain mass of tradition in Iran and the Message He gave to this branch of the human race was based upon what they had inherited from a dim and distant past..."

If I have the least bit of knowledge

and fear nothing but being sidetracked.
The great Way is simple
but people delight in complexity.

"What is culture? The word itself comes from “cultus” or cult and has intrinsic religious dimensions. Culture, strictly speaking, refers to all the aspects of daily life that bear the imprint of society’s religious center: tools, architecture, clothing, as well as art, literature, and music. From this perspective, culture refers to the sanctification of daily life.”
Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
"We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question that divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct." Niels Bohr
My teachings are very easy to understand and to practice; yet there is no one in the world who is able either to understand or to practice them. This is because my teachings have an originating principle and arise from an integrated system. This is not understood, so I am unknown.

"T.S. Eliot pointed out that an artist creates his own "school" of predecessors that nobody noticed had anything in common before."
We can only accommodate the changing demographics of the nation and the world if we hold fast to the rights and independence of the states and of local rule. Otherwise the always changing demographics may vote the laws and the Constitution out of existence, and the freedom to evolve will be lost. KLA
Every human being is born to develop and evolve on the high path to future Godhood for their descendants, and the Evolutionary Christian Church is the means to activate that potential. KLA
Materia and energy are INTERTWINED with time in physics. So there can not be any time before materia and energy, neither can we say that materia and energy are eternal as if there was some kind of meta-time, because there is no such thing. And if the supernatural does exist, it is natural. There is no point in talking of something being supernatural. If something does exist IT IS PART OF NATURE, part of Ahura.
