LXXXIII. Intentionally Anthropomorphizing My Model 

Historically human beings have shown a tendency to assign gender to a wide variety of things that have nothing to do with sex. Romance languages in particular celebrate gender by assigning it to words by way of various masculine and feminine determinative articles, verb conjugations, and word endings. Ideological authorities have and continue to assign gender to a myth about the existence of a good one in Heaven at war with an evil one cast down to and ruling over Earth. I previously suggested that our universe is creator of our seed bodies and that our spirit is creator of our souls. I further suggested that the seed body and soul spirit combine to form life. I choose to ornament my model of the existence of one totality with a most optimistic myth about the existence of an infinity, divinity, eternally one that is in everything, everywhere, at all times, and manifests for the purposes of enjoying entertainment as an infinite seed, an infinite body, an infinite soul, and an infinite spirit. 

         I realize that it is possible for me to intentionally anthropomorphize my beliefs about an infinity, divinity, eternally, one that is in everything, everywhere, at all times, and manifests for the purposes of enjoying entertainment as an Infinite Four. It is possible for me to anthropomorphize the infinite spirit; an infinite divine eternal one; as Mother God. It is possible for me to anthropomorphize the infinite seed; an infinite fractal infernal one; as Father Love. It is possible for me to anthropomorphize the infinite body, an alienation fractal infernal infinite and the infinite soul, an alienation divine eternal infinite; as the Soul Children, born of the union of Mother God and Father Love. I realize that it is possible for me to anthropomorphize the Infinite Four; as Mother God, Father Love, and the Soul Children; and to imagine a most optimistic myth about the existence of the family of Mo Go Fa Lo. 

      I believe this way of anthropomorphizing my model of the existence of one totality with a most optimistic myth about the existence of an infinity, divinity, eternally, one that is in everything, everywhere, at all times, and manifests for the purposes of enjoying entertainment as an infinite seed, an infinite body, an infinite soul, and an infinite spirit is inspired by and in accord with traditional yin yang dualistic philosophy. I choose a female gender identity for the infinite spirit because the infinite spirit creates souls that are not obvious to discover using the fractal infernal temporal tools of science and senses made available to us by our seed bodies and the universe. I choose a masculine gender identity for the infinite seed because the infinite seed creates our universe as one of an infinite seed of large universes of the correct kind to support living infernal fractal entities and some of the energy and matter of our universe is obvious to discover using fractal infernal temporal tools of science and senses made available to us by our seed bodies and universe. 

Criticism of anthropomorphic gods is almost as old as the myths and fantasies themselves. For example, Xenophanes a 6th century B.C. poet, singer, philosopher, and critic of contemporary ethics and theology, specifically the theology of Homer, and Hesiod had this to say.

 

THE NATURE OF THE GODS

 

Man made his gods, and furnished them

with his own body, voice and garments . . .

If a horse or lion or a slow ox

had agile hands for paint and sculpture,

the horse would make his god a horse,

the ox would sculpt an ox . . .

Our gods have flat noses and black skins

say the Ethiopians. The Thracians say

our gods have red hair and hazel eyes.

 

        After Xenophanes suggests that ethnocentric preferences of communities of faithful believers are responsible for the popularity of earlier theological ideas, he states his own beliefs. Xenophanes submits that there is only a single non-anthropomorphic deity. This omniscient God bears no resemblance to any man in body or in thought and remains motionless in one place at all times. Maybe Xenophanes was "scientific" in that he questions the old beliefs about anthropomorphic Gods and presents his own beliefs as a hypothesis. Maybe his contribution was essential in breaking down old beliefs and establishing a new more "scientific" method of logical thinking.  

His third point is that man will never know the truth about the Gods because of the limitations of human knowledge.

 

KNOWLEDGE

 

The gods did not enrich man

with a knowledge of all things

from the beginning of life . . .

Yet man seeks, and in time

invents what may be better . . .

 

The truth is that no man ever was or will be

who understands the gods and all I speak of.

If you stumble on some rocks of the whole truth

you never know it. There is always speculation.

           

            Despite his criticism and the many other criticisms that have preceded and followed it, anthropomorphic imagery has continued to be popular amongst ideological authorities devoting energy, space, and time to the spiritual leadership, and moral education of language speaking peoples. Maybe entertainment value derived from making a god more personable and respect for the traditions of ancestors’ are some of the reasons that anthropomorphic imagery continues to survive over time.

 I am free to compare and contrast the way I anthropomorphize my model of the existence of one totality with the way that communities of faithful believers self organized around Abrahamic religions anthropomorphize their models of the existence of one totality. I do this to better communicate, explain, and illustrate the similarities and differences between me and them, to diversify and vary presentation and help to provide entertaining and educational spiritual leadership. In particular, I believe that I aid those already comfortable and familiar with certain modes of emotional language and logic by this effort. In the interests of entertainment, education, and spiritual leadership; I find anthropomorphic imagery to be effective in teaching, educating, and leading us to devote energy, space, and time to a most optimistic myth about the existence of an infinity, divinity, eternally, one that is in everything, everywhere, at all times, and manifests for the purpose of enjoying entertainment as an Infinite Four.
