MICROBES IN KOSMON
Let no man marvel because of the size of the mammoth and the ichthyosaurus, for there was a time for them as there is a time for the infusoria of this day....OAHSPE, Book of Jehovih; 04/4.19.
An intriguing statement. In other words:
As the ancient great beasts dominated in their time, today is the time when the microbe's power and extent is realized.
Since microbes were discovered in modern times, they have been found to exist in the extreme of the biosphere and even possibly beyond:
"Microorganisms live in every part of the biosphere, including soil, hot springs, "seven miles deep" in the ocean, "40 miles high" in the atmosphere and inside rocks far down within the Earth's crust - Wikipedia
Interestingly, the microbe was discovered in our modern times with the rise of light and expansion of knowledge that began not long before the dawn of Kosmon which occurred in 1849:
"The study of microorganisms is called microbiology, a subject that began with the discovery of microorganisms in 1674 by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, using a microscope of his own design." -- Wikipedia.
Although modern man came to know about microbes through the technology of the microscope, it is not something that man in times past was completely ignorant about. In many distant regions of the world, the art of fermentation (the culture of certain microbes/bacteria that aid in the preservation and digestibility of various plant foods) was practiced from ancient times. Also there has long been widespread knowledge of antiseptic herbs and roots, which are known to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. Thousands of years ago there were instances of "germ warfare" which involved false gods and evil spirits:
Oahspe, Book of Wars Against Jehovih;
25/23.8. || [The false Osiris said:] you shall have your spirits carry virus and inoculate mortals so they die; or have them fill the city with epidemic air, well poisoned, throwing mortals into fevers so they shall die. ||
Microbes have been around since the planet was first ready to sustain life, but unlike man and animals, they can adapt and mutate in response to the mileu, in a way that is similar to what Oahspe describes as animated Se'mu:
Oahspe, Book of Jehovih; 04/5.14.
|| As a testimony to man, behold the earth was once a globe of liquid fire! Nor was there any seed on it. But in due season I rained down se'mu on the earth; and by virtue of My presence I quickened into life all the living. Without seed I created the life that is in them. ||
Se'mu can be thought of as a precursor to living things. A couple of analogies could be drawn from the protoplasm in which a new animal life is conceived, or a nutrient gel that bacteriologists use to culture bacteria. It is the medium or substance that the invisible seed/spirit of the Creator inhabits at the time of creation. The now animated se'mu has the ability to form and adapt according to the environment in which it grows. For instance, in the time when plants were formed from se'mu, there was darkness. When there was light, the seeded se'mu developed eyes, and animals were formed.
Book of Cosmogony and Prophecy; 38/5.7, 8.
||....Whatever living things, such as herbs, trees, grasses, and so on, that were quickened into life during darkness, were without eyes. Nevertheless, in THIS day, even these things turn toward the light; as plants and flowers placed in a window will manifest.
Where se'mu was quickened into life in lighter times, it focalized toward the light, and this focus was called an eye. And those that were thus quickened into life, and not attached to the earth by fibers or roots, were called animals. ||
While the microbes of today are not the same as se'mu, they are rudimentary life forms, and like se'mu, they adapt and "mutate" according to their milieu/environment. Their place in the web of life is essential. They are the sustainers of the basic conditions that more advanced life-forms require to exist in a living web of life on this planet. When the milieu becomes out of balance and toxic, microbes act as the clean-up crew. For instance, in the human body, rotting meat and animal substance are attacked by microbes adapted to consume toxic rotting substance. Their presence and action has been recognized as symptoms of disease. This balance of microbes according to the cleanliness or otherwise of the milieu was known back in the 1800's, but the controllers of medical science and training chose a model that focused on fighting bacteria with the battle axe of satan, with the human body as the battleground, rather than purify for a vital clean body so as to deny nurturance of opportunistic bacteria which was harmful to the human body.
Pasteur is the father of the "germ theory" which is based on the belief that germs are the cause of illness. The dominant medical model is based on Pasteur's germ theory. But Pasteur came to realize he had made some incorrect assumptions.
Later in life Pasteur stated,"The presence in the body of a pathogenic agent is not necessarily synonymous with infectious disease."
|| Pasteur was aware that fermentation (which he studied extensively while formulating his germ theory) only occurs in injured, bruised or dead material, and that bacteria are a natural result of fermentation, not the cause. He realized later that germs and bacteria change their form according to their environment. Unfortunately, the stepping-stones of modern-day medicine were already in place and Pasteur could not reverse the situation. ||
"The micro-organisms that live in our bodies and cause us to get sick, can cause the illness because we provide them with a rich growth medium (the garbage) that they can feed on and then change into deadly bacteria, fungus and viruses.... " Sharon Wiginton author of Abounding Health Naturally.
Man's disregard for cleanliness in himself and his environment, due more to faith in antibiotics and "wonder drugs" than ignorance, has created "superbugs" whose very names inspire dread. Multitudes donate money and pray for some vaccine or toxin that will save them from a plague of man's own making. But if man is to rise in knowledge and behavior, and master the elements of his surroundings he must adapt himself to His Creator, instead of resorting to destroying whatever challenges him:
Oahspe, Book of Inspiration; 34/12.36-38.
As of old, I [Jehovih] commanded you to have dominion over every living thing I created; so, now, I command you to take the earth and the waters of the earth and the air above the earth into your dominion also.
And you shall rule over them; to drive away the heat, and bring the cold; to drive away the cold, and bring the heat; as you will, for the benefit of all the living.
To accomplish which, you shall now, first of all, adapt yourself to your Creator, according to My highest Light upon you: Whatever living things, such as herbs, trees, grasses, and so on, that were quickened into life during darkness, were without eyes. Nevertheless, in THIS day, even these things turn toward the light; as plants and flowers placed in a window will manifest. ||
In the same way that plants thrive in the light --- by eating plant foods, our bodies, like the plants, will come to rejoice in the light; and so the way will be opened for dominion in light. The sooner man does this, the sooner he can come to terms with the humble microbe which has already colonized all the places man has yet to gain dominion over. Developing a symbiosis with microbes as a part of man's custodianship of earth is the path he must pursue.
Oahspe, Book of Cosmogony and Prophecy; 38/8.15.
The inoculation, or vaccination, of flesh with poison (vaccines), to save it from poison (bacteria, virus, disease), is to use the battle axe of satan. Man shall learn the higher law; to save by virtue instead of vice.
As man begins to follow the first law of purification, he will also strive to keep his environment clean too. Because, man must strive for wise dominion, which is WISDOM --- WIS(e)DOM(inion). In the past, and still today, much of mankind has used the battle axe of satan to dominate his fellows and surroundings, but in this day and age, he will only progress "by adapting to his Creator" and following his Highest Light.
Oahspe, Book of Ben; 36/2.1-9.
God said: Hear me, O man. I have come to teach you wise dominion.
Man said: The aborigines were free. Why should man with more wisdom, learn dominion?
Seffas said: My peace is forced peace; I am the light and the life.
Man inquired: Behold, the air of heaven is free. Can dominion come down out of nothing (as it seems) and rule over something (that is proven)? How can God rule over solid flesh?
Uz said: O vain man! Do I not come in the winds of heaven and cast cities in epidemic? And yet man does not see me. I inoculate in the breath; I cast fevers in the bright sunlight, and yet no man sees me.
Jehovih said: I gave the unseen all power to rule over the seen.
Kosmon said: O man, why will you always search in corpor for the cause of things? Behold, the unseen part of yourself rules over the seen.
The consequences of impurity in body and environment, fosters the proliferation of microbes adapted to consume filth, attacking and hijacking the very cells in which the filth has accumulated. The metabolization of filth by such microbes also produces substances than compound and exacerbate the poisons. Man may think he can kill certain microbes associated with various symptoms, but unless he removes the filth, he remains plagued with disease. And, microbes have a habit of re-surging with immunity to toxins (anti-biotics) that previously laid them low. We also know that most anti-biotics do not only target harmful bacteria, but also destroy beneficial bacteria vital to sustaining health in the body.
Oahspe, Book of Eskra; 28/36.41-43.
|| Yet he who says: Let the evil practice evil, because the Creator created them, is of a narrow mind. Or, if he says: Jehovih sent the rainstorm to destroy the harvest; or, Jehovih sends fevers to the dirty city: such a man lacks discretion in words and judgment.
But he who perceives that man is part of the creation, in which he must do a part of the work himself, or fevers will result, such a man has his understanding open in regard to the Father.
Between the too much casting of all things in Jehovih's face, and too little belief in Him, lies the mean, which works (develops) the perfection of man. ||
There are certain times and seasons which are propitious for microbes to flourish. According to Oahspe one of these times is Ji'ay.
Oahspe, Book of Cosmogony and Prophecy; 38/8.2, 38/7.9, 38/8.14.
Ethe, being the time of light, is named dan; ji'ay, the time of fevers, epidemics, plagues; and a'ji, the time of wars, dashing forth with power and grasping; mi, the earth, being the subject....
These revelations [for prophecy] are chiefly made so that man can begin to comprehend these things, and learn to classify them so as to rise in wisdom and virtue, and thus overcome these epidemic seasons of cycles...
And when an epidemic is predicted for a city, man shall dissipate the falling se'mu, and thus save it from destruction.
According to the cycles we are in a lengthy period of Ji'ay as the light rises from 2017-18 to 2049. It will be a time when those whose field is impure will experience the consequences of impurity in diet and environment. Yet Jehovih has provided for man with the means to progress with teachers, technology and dissemination of information. Man is learning how to detoxify his body and environment, to choose beneficial nutrients in the plant kingdom instead of toxic animal substance. Clean fuels, foods, manufacturing, harvesting are all necessary for man to progress in his journey through the Kosmon Era.
"On Pasteur's death-bed he said: Bernard was right, the seed is nothing, the soil is everything...
An interesting analogy [Bernard] Beauchamp used to try and convince Pasteur of the error in the germ theory is about the relationship of flies to garbage. Would we say that flies create garbage? Of course flies are drawn to the garbage! Flies are scavengers and they feed off of decaying matter. The association germs (flies) have with diseased tissue (garbage) is this: germs do not make the tissue weak, but the germs are drawn to the weak tissue....
Whether or not we get sick does not have so much to do with what germ we may catch, but really has more to do with whether we keep our bodies free of decaying matter that germs will be drawn to and feed on. The decaying matter these germs feed on is caused by poor nutrition and an unbalanced life.
Pasteur the father of vaccinations [would] rather declare war on germs instead of clean up the field...
Most of the germs that enter our bodies from the outside are quickly killed by our immune system. The micro-organisms that live in our bodies and cause us to get sick can cause the illness because we provide them with a rich growth medium (the garbage) that they can feed on and then change into deadly bacteria, fungus and viruses..." Sharon Wiginton; Abounding Health Naturally.
Microbes are everywhere, they help or harm. Man fights them with poison using the battle axe of satan, but man cannot win that way. He disregards their place and power, without them there is no life on the planet. We need beneficial bacteria in our body for normal bodily functions, but they also keep opportunistic bacteria from multiplying. Soil mistreated with poisons and bad farming practices depletes beneficial microorganisms, crops need beneficial bacteria for health too --- essentially, they require a healthy soil. Man is coming to realize that declaring war on microbes is a losing battle. His next realization must be that virtuous behavior and respect toward the environment, indeed Mother Earth, is his only option to dealing with the precipice he has brought himself to.
