Inspired at the moment I cast my eyes upon my dog, Jacky, in what I shall call (my own looking) a gaze, and I suddenly noticed that he had instantaneously shifted from one space to the other, but in no time, i.e., no movement. And I thought it odd, and I considered it more, and it occurred to me that I must have blinked just as he moved and not realized it.
So that’s interesting, I think. Suppose the world itself blinked. We wouldn’t notice or pay any attention and simply assume we had blinked. But maybe we hadn’t blinked and what occurred was a disregard of time and space. And so maybe, for example, suddenly the whole world was put on another trajectory and it was done right before our eyes and we did not pay any attention, due to our experience with blinks (which are within us).
And so maybe there is another nature ahead. I am thinking now of this notion Kant brings up of the merging of the world of nature with the world of the moral law and freedom. Maybe there are these universal blinks which respond to a purpose.
Now I need to get that straight. Sciences give us the causation of nature. But here we are talking about purposes. And so I’m thinking that it could be possible say, by a free act, to actual take advantage of one of these transformations/shifts and actually influence it to take a certain trajectory.
And so maybe this is Kant’s idea, in a way, of how these two, nature and freedom and moral, are going to get united. So maybe these jolts in nature, like the particles going in and out of existence (or is it just out of sight? but which is all the same to the scientist in the brainarium). And by engaging in our moral acts we actually enter freedom in to the equation and in that way work toward the Highest Good.
So we look at this incredible gift of freedom, which we recognize thanks to the moral law of autonomy in legislation, “Every man shall be a king”. And so we can at least see the hint of a purpose to this very existence, namely we are free and we are on a quest, we are part of it, we are actually ourselves shaping the laws of nature into a rational nature, unification of cause and purpose.
This thesis then would suggest some sort of evidence for the Highest Good, a means of uniting these two worlds in order that we might indeed achieve to moral perfection, the promise of our nature, and that we would also be happy, and not just in the thought, but in the fact, i.e., something is going on and we are being called to make it happen by our own free will as human beings, and we are taking part.
I have a crazy idea that goes like this. The moral and the natural realms are so much merely one that if a Righteous Man should proclaim the sun to move it would happen, and upon of a thorough grasp of all data it would also be revealed then as to why that had to happen, according to equations which were fully equipped. And then it would be no marvel, for then we could see how it could be done, by becoming a Righteous One.
But this is impossible for the human, due to his very nature of refusing to take “no” for an answer, but only for cover. So it is merely a thesis and cannot be exemplified in any human example, and so is of no use of any kind to science.
So suddenly, in my mind, there pops up the marvelous idea of a human being raised by a gullible young girl who nature has produced to do by random chance that which a perfect mother would do, and she were given a child whose only virtue was submission. The one being who would freely choose to obey.
And so the nature now is so composed that it conforms and indeeds even anticipates (in its more informed status) what a Righteous One would freely command on his own. This, accordingly to hearsay, happened once, but in the rare case of someone who was righteous at birth, a totally absolutely determined submission to doing as he was told, and who was in the hands of someone sort of like Joan of Arc, who just seemed to know exactly what to do in any situation, like raising the Righteous One.
Now I don’t know exactly where this is headed, this ramble. This boy grows up totally submissive to his mother until suddenly one day out of the blue he disobeyed her and stands on his own as the Righteous One (it was at a wedding in a so-called Cana). So nature responds accordingly to its laws and supplies what the Righteous One commands, the one under perfect self control. He always was consciousness of his own self control. The first human ever able to control the self. [Adam and Eve could not control themselves.] [Why not? speaking of the story.]
So, following this story, it is impossible for a Righteous Man to die according to the laws of nature (when fully known to man), and so he would have to command it anyway and he would do this out of love for all human beings whosoever (and the tactic would be to make the world angry with him and show its true colors). Now the purpose of this self destruction would be to show humans what they, as unrighteous ones, must do in order to change the world by the implementation of their own free will, i.e., they must die to self. This is the only way that you humans can be helped. Believe me (speaking as Jesus). It is so. This is why I must now command my own destruction in the face of your cries, and go to Calvary, in order to go first on your behalf and as your lead. This is what you have to do. Believe me. This is the only hope. And if you do as I have told you, i.e., dying to sin and self, you will come to see the fact of the salvation itself, that the earth has been redeemed and set on a course that will end up being the New Jerusalem, a gift of God to those fellow humans whom he loves so much. Now tremble through the Sabbath (for the sake of the patriarchs) with me and see what God will do to show you, my beloved friends and beloved John and my beloved mother, so that you might yourselves, as you die to sin (speaking to humans), realize that you will rise immediately in eternal life and a whole new dimension to existence. And, if you live long enough, you will yourself experience this new nature that you will be born to.
