    Wel live in this written reality of the intenet. This new digital era reminds me of antiquity of the printing press, revolutionary and this reality in its radical changing aspects. .

    Religion as it stands today is very much the parent of this reality and outmoded for this written reality at the same time. Or and true the medium itself is deeply outmoded for religion. That is an interesting issue itself.

    My guess is religion abandons this reality and moves to a different form. Very possibly oral tradition as its main expression of communication. That might at first glance seem absurdly luddite. I did not say they will be illiterate. I might say the exact opposite. I simply said this medium itself is not ideal to the needs of religion i think its deeply outmoded rather old and rather not ideal. Primative comes to mind in regards to these written symbols actually, to convey religious truths.

    When i say religion, thats a broader term than many can imagine.

    Any thoughts?

    I think the biggest problem for religions today is that so few actually follow the teaching as it was intended to, and this make religions practice more difficult to achieve the true wisdom. And many put their own understanding of the religion as the truth, but how can they do this when they are not yet enlighten to the truth themself

    I think you wrapped it up in a nutshell!
    Enlightened folk are slackers! No easy hey i arrived i just hunker down do this like its always been done! Ha! Hard work always hard work.

    A shaman must be the psychologist of the psychologists. Or they really are not a shaman but a confused individual. I think of jung when he said "thank god i am jung and not jungian" hahahahaha now thats funny! Growth always growth.

    I will peruse it!
    Carl jung said "thank god i am jung not jungian"so i cautiously read. I dont read jung just clips and have the red book.

    Here is darwins drawing of modernity! Thank god every educated literate moron in modernity stands in one spot and says" i think" and prattles off into fantasy!
    We have a tree that a retarded girl can understand and the intellectualizers over there. Well done darwin. Unintended.
