Re: Could Mysticism be a type "A" innovation?

In Response To: Mysticism and Meat-Eating (Thomas Seay)
Other than the rather whiney first paragraph,
Thanks for a thought provoking post!
My thoughts are that mysticism, being most often
associated with the Indian sub-continent, and my
assumption that type "A" is predominant in that
part of the world, leads me to the conclusion
that those who say that meat-eating was "bad"
for meditiation are correct. For the obvious
reason, due to the D'Adamo observations.
Could it be that mysticism was an innovation
in understanding "life-force" brought to us by
the "A" type evolution? It all makes sense to
me. And, of course, that probably says more
about me than anything else!
I have re-assured some of the doubters that
meat-eating is "bad" if the animal is killed
for no good reason. I would suggest that it
is "bad" for a type "A" or "AB" to "kill" for
meat since their systems gain no benefit, in fact,
harm is done to the system. Conversely, for
a type "O" or "B", since this is truly food,
how can it be "wrong". Not to pretend that I
know what I am talking about, but I have been
told that the "native" Americans felt, as long
as the killing of an animal was used for a
worthwhile purpose, the animal was "honored"
and therefore the killing was justified.
I find this line of thinking to make a natural
kind of sense to me. I hope I have not mis-
represented the reasoning.
I would tend to think there is really no linkage
between meditating and meat-eating. I would
suspect a grain-eating type "O" would have a
similar disadvantage to the the meat-eating "A".
Does anyone know the blood-type distribution
I thought this fit in with your comments.
