In Response To: Re: Could Mysticism be a type "A" innovation? (Rick McInnis)
Rick, it strikes me that there is another possible for the prevalence of mysticism in the Indian sub-continent, and that's because there's been no interruption in the religion from the time it began. The priests have been able to carry the knowledge unaltered through milennia to the present day. In other words, they still know how to do it and why.
But that doesn't fit our country. The natives have been pretty much wiped out. Also, Europe became primarily, well actually exclusively Catholic, after the Age of Pisces began, and destroyed an awful lot of indigenous writing and knowledge in both American hemispheres. A lot of Egyptian stuff isn't available yet, either, though it appears to exist, there are definite indications of where it is, but people haven't been able to dig for it yet. It's a matter of knowledge in the right hands being passed down in time and of course through a culture in the present.
I'm not sure how this ties in with diet exactly. I know it ties in very strongly with medical and healing practices. Remember, our left-brain way of knowing isn't the only kind. Many ancient medical practices which were very sophisticated and effective have been lost to us. Also, when ways of thinking, being, growing food, eating, and living are all considered sacred, it is possible that the body is able to do far more that we can imagine. It is possible that the body can utilize food in ways that are helpful and healing, no matter what the kind.
What do you think?
