    Socrates illustrates the doctrine of the divided line...
    [​IMG]

    In metaphor of prisoners tied up in the cave. Having making the journey to the upper world they pass from opinion to actual knowledge. In the world of the ideal, as illustrated below, we find Justice at the very top. To form opinions require us to make judgements of our reality. God therefore cares about out opinions, not that he may agree with them, but our opinions form judgements, which we will be accountable for in that last day...

    If E = mc2 then we can divide and conclude that...

    Mass (m) = Energy (E/c2)

    And there are three varieties...

    Natural E/c2 - All mass is basically cooled plasma
    Mental E/c2 - Mentally, A mathematical formula, but this has chemical and spiritual properties as well.
    Spiritual E/c2 - E (motivation, warmth, love) / c2 (faith, hope, charity, joy)

    To pass from the darkness into the upper world is to escape the clutches of darkness and discover light and energy on a natural, mental, and spiritual level.

    You cannot build a religion, a doctrine, a utopian society, a culture, or anything else superior... And leave the spiritual aspects out of it! Albert Einstein himself worried about this....

    "The real problem is in the hearts and minds of men. It is not a problem of physics, but of ethics. It is easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man. What frightens us is not the explosive power of the atom bomb, but the equally explosive powers of human personalities.

    "Man's skills have outstripped his morals. His engineering has leaped ahead of his wisdom. We cannot cancel or call back his scientific advance, but we can and must, if the world is to survive, help man to catch up. In God's name, if you still believe in God ... We must somehow get control of what science has given the world, or else we shall perish." - Albert Einstein

    At the top of the line is the sun, an amazing source of light and energy, and there are children of this light and energy...

    Natural E/c2 - All mass is basically cooled plasma
    Mental E/c2 - Intelligence...
    Spiritual E/c2 - Spirituality E (motivation, warmth, love) / c2 (faith, hope, charity, joy)

    At the bottom of the line is a dark cold cave, and there are children of the cold (absolute zero, z)and darkness (darkness, z)

    Natural z/d - Nothing, empty space.
    Mental z/d - Again nothing but empty space.
    Spiritual z/d - z (laziness, coldness, hatred / d (fear, despair, greed, sorrow)

    And it is a journey getting from the dark cold cave to the great warmth and outdoors...

    I have.

    And I've read enough other philosophy (and even some physics texts) to know that the cave allegory has Sweet Fanny Adams to do with your nonsensical attempts to conflate mass-energy equivalence with spiritualist woo.

    Got a specific citation for this?

    It's attributed to der gross Albert, but specific references are not forthcoming (always suspicious, particularly when elipses are involved).

    There is yet another form of light and energy that was brought down with Lucifer after they were booted out of heaven. This light and energy is in the form of Ego and as there is none of the true light and energy in ego, the ends are always cold and dark.

    “Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.” - Yoda

    It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. -Mark 10:25

    To capture the true light and energy the ego must be left behind! And to come to God and feel his light and energies you must do so in all humility!

    Ego is neither light nor energy. It's a part of the human conscious.

    But the ego is not a form of energy! And if you're going to quote someone, quote them in full:
    "The real problem is in the hearts and minds of men. It is not a problem of physics, but of ethics. It is easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man. What frightens us is not the explosive power of the atom bomb, but the equally explosive powers of human personalities.

    "Man's skills have outstripped his morals. His engineering has leaped ahead of his wisdom. We cannot cancel or call back his scientific advance, but we can and must, if the world is to survive, help man to catch up. In God's name, if you still believe in God ... we must somehow get control of what science has given the world, or else we shall perish."

    Einstein was talking about the atomic bomb, not the ego.

    Atheist and Deist listen to things that build spiritual E/c2 all the time... And then they get mad at you for trying to define it! What song has been made great without it? I have not listened to secular music in decades. But there was one album back in 1993 where I enjoyed every song. The album was "Hints allegations and things left unsaid" by Collective Soul. And I loved the song "Breath"...


    Down by sea
    I think I saw (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
    Our love dissolve

    So plant a little seed
    Soon it starts growing
    Shed a little light
    Soon we'll be glowing
    Hear a little tune
    Soon we'll start singing
    Give a little love
    Then love will start breathing

    Out by the bay
    I long to be (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
    A man of peace
    I'm gonna breathe love

    Yeah, I'm gonna take a deep breath for you
    Come on now people
    Come on now breathe- Breath Collective Soul

    Are you not going to address the fact that you were wrong about Einstein and the ego?

    Spiritual Light and energy are sewn inside the atom itself. That is why a warm and a sunny day does the soul so much good!
