The first principles of man are self-existent with God. God himself, finding he was in the midst of spirits and glory, because he was more intelligent, saw proper to institute laws whereby the rest could have a privilege to advance like himself. The relationship we have with God places us in a situation to advance in knowledge. He has power to institute laws to instruct the weaker intelligences, that they may be exalted with himself, so that they might have one glory upon another, and all that knowledge, power, glory, and intelligence, which is requisite in order to save them in the world of spirits.
This is good doctrine. It tastes good. I can taste the principles of eternal life, and so can you. They are given to my by the revelations of Jesus Christ; and I know that when I tell you these words of eternal life as they are given to me, you taste them, and I know that you believe them. You say honey is sweet, and so do I. I can also taste the spirit of eternal life. I know it is good; and when I tell you of these things which were given my by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, you are bound to receive them as sweet, and rejoice more and more.TPJS, Section Six 1843-44, p.355
A link to Temple and Cosmos for those who don’t want to spend money:
While I’m at it, here’s a link to pretty much all of Nibley:
“Here we are dealing with world class noodles”
This is definitely the next t-shirt, so…
Also, I deem this an excellent assessment of the stort as well! Symbol use is always the key, even if someone uses them unknowingly…although usually they know. Are they truth seekers with true use? Or, are they inversionists?
Great dive on the Harry Potter content! JKR once indicated that she put “everything” in the first book, not knowing for sure whether she’d have enough success to put out the sequels.
In Snape’s potion riddle, you have the recurrence of 7, and Fibonacci numbers. 1 to bring you forward, 1 backwards, 2 wine, 3 poison. Tipping the hand on Snapes loyalties, and secret connection to a wisdom figure right from the beginning.
Really enjoyed this one and now I have to go re-read and study Harry Potter. lol. Great stuff!
