In Search of the “Truth” (Writer’s Note)

These protocols date back to the seventieth century French philosopher Rene` Descartes and were modernized during the serial program on radio and television called “Dragnet.”

The first responsibility of an investigator is to separate the facts from opinions.  Sergeant Joe Friday of the Investigative Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, this fictional character in the serial “Dragnet,” often stated when interviewing witnesses, “Just the facts ma’am, just the facts.”

The second responsibility of an investigator is to not form any opinion on the outcome of the investigation.  If an investigator attempts to prove what they know is the correct outcome, they will undoubtedly prove themselves right.  The Innocent Program, to this day, is finding innocent people who have spent years in prison due to these faulty investigations.

The third responsibility of the investigator is to be skeptical of all information assuming the information to be false until proven to be true.

Introduction

 The Creator of the Universe (CoU) sent us a messenger to teach us how to function in His creation.  This messenger came as a seed planted into a virgin, grew up and developed in a monotheist society, taught us the ropes of life on this planet and how the processes work. He upset the apple cart of those in power and was executed just as Socrates before him was executed for the same actions.  They called this messenger Jesus and he needed to die so that he could raise from the dead in a new form capable of traveling through space back to His home somewhere in the universe.

The messenger did not come to save anyone. He only taught us how the processes that the CoU put in place – in the beginning of time – worked.  The beginning of time was when the universe was born from an explosion of an egg (recent researchers have photographically shown that the universe is in the shape of an egg; if it is in the shape of an egg now, it was in the shape of an egg at the beginning of time at the occurrence of the “Big Bang”).  An egg precedes all life.

Predestined

 All processes in the universe were predestined to take place at their proper time.  All processes includes all that man (the Homo Sapien species) experiences; all life on this planet experiences and all of the processes in the universe experiences.  The process put forward at the Big Bang is perfect in every way. The Messenger came to this planet to teach us these processes and how to function on this planet Earth until it also follows the predestined process, when our sun runs out of hydrogen fuel and implodes under the force of gravity and consumes the Earth, providing material for a new solar system and galaxy to be born, filling in the gaps as the universe continues to expand.

Knowledge of the Processes

 One observable process is the changing hormones in our bodies that develop on schedule.  One example of one of these observable processes is the changing focus of our teenage daughters as they develop into womanhood and seek a mate to reproduce our species.  Lack of knowledge of this process can result in much tragedy, as illustrated in the Bible in Genesis 34, concerning a young lady named Dinah.  In a nut-shell, a young teenager left her clan of brothers to find a mate.  Two of her brothers did not have knowledge of this natural process and took it upon themselves to avenge what they thought was the offending parties by slaughtering the whole clan! [i]

Carl Gustav Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, performed an investigation in the1930’s involving men of several different ages.  He asked each participant only one question: “What meaning does God have in your life?”  He found that men younger than thirty-five years of age typically responded with, “God has no meaning in my life” or words to that effect.  With men between the ages of thirty-five to thirty-nine, the typical response was, “God is the most important thing in my life.”   These men had discovered their consciences and their consciences are connected to the CoU!  This is evidence of a process taking place in men, as it does in our teenage daughters.  One can perform this survey themselves. Just ask the newly arrived middle-aged men in your church or religious society how old they are (In addition, ask them if they have an older brother. You will be amazed at this statistic; compare the personalities of James and John, sons of Zebedee).

However, not all men go through this process.  The Messenger taught us about God’s Kingdom being “like a mustard seed, the smallest of all the seeds,” and “when sown, it grows to such a great height that birds rest in its branches.”(Ref.: Gospels of Matthew, Luke, Mark and Thomas).  Also in Matthew and Luke: “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? It is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, until it was all leavened.”  These parables indicate that we must take an action, be proactive, and sow the seeds that will allow men to discover their conscience that is connected to the CoU.    Evidently, if this small seed is not sown in men’s lives before age thirty-nine, possibly even earlier, they will not discover their conscience.  Even Socrates was quoted as stating that he had a ‘Daimon’  “that frequently warned him—in the form of a ’voice’—against mistakes but never told him what to do.”. [ii] Socrates experienced good guidance by him discovering his conscience.  Was there a seed planted in Socrates at an early age? In the Gospels of Mary Magdalene and Thomas, Jesus stated, “For the child of humanity exists within you,” “The kingdom is inside you and it is outside you,[iii] and “Do not look for me outside of yourself look for me inside yourself.[iv]

The Written Word

 All through history, people have put great emphases on allowing the written word to guide them through life.  This writer was once told by a co-worker that one can go through life making and learning from their mistakes or they can learn from other people’s mistakes. For the most part, this is what makes the Old Testament Bible very useful as a guide to one’s own life; learning from their mistakes! This emphasis, as a guide to life, is demonstrated in the Old Testament Bible, particularly the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible).   The Israeli nation came into possession of the Promised Land thorough their ancestor Abram (also Abraham) who was promised this land by God.  The family lineage and the eventual possession of this Promised Land took place from ca. 1400 BC to ca. 600 BC. (Note: It is proposed that the Ten Commandments [instructions] were intended to instruct the Israelites how to maintain possession of this land that was given to them.) [v]

 During their possession of this Promised Land, King Solomon built a temple in Jerusalem.  This was a place of worship for the Israelis and was an import part of their culture.  The Israeli nation was overthrown and conquered by the Babylonians ca. 597 BCE; Solomon’s Temple was destroyed and the elite of the Israelis were forced into exile in Babylon.  “Babylonian Exile, also called Babylonian Captivity, the forced detention of Jews in Babylonia following the latter’s conquest of the kingdom of Judah in 598/7 and 587/6 BCE. The exile formally ended in 538 BCE, when the Persian conqueror of Babylonia, Cyrus the Great, gave the Jews permission to return to Palestine.” [vi]  It has been proposed that while the elite of the Israelis were in exile, they recorded the Pentateuch in writing from the information that had been passed down through the oral tradition for the past approximately 800 years.  There is some hard evidence to support this hypothesis.

The Seven Stars that Wandered

  Early Astronomers observed eight stars that wandered, but it was Pythagoras the Greek astronomer, astrologist, philosopher, and mathematician that identified the morning and evening stars to be the same star.   We now know this star to be the planet Venus. This observation put the date of the discovery of the “Seven Stars that Wandered” during the lifetime of Pythagoras, ca. 570 to ca 495 BCE.  The number seven or seventy occurs numerous times in the Pentateuch as special, spiritual numbers.  There is an overlap of dates of the Israeli exile and the life time of Pythagoras, therefore the exiled Israelis would have known and accepted these seven stars as spiritual, as for them they wandered around the earth (the center of the universe at that time). (Note: Compare our 21st century knowledge of the universe to that of these 6th century BCE astronomers by looking into the asterism of the Big Dipper, which lies within the constellation of Ursa Major. Counting the stars in this scoop of the Big Dipper, you should see only a few stars inside this Big Dipper. However, when the Hubble Telescope focused inside the Big Dipper for several days, it was able to collect enough photons (light) to produce an image of many stars, (million or billions) inside the Big Dipper. Astronomers estimate that some of these distant stars were formed at the time of the Big Bang!) This comparison just shows that we know more about the universe than those who wrote the Bible.

The Pentateuch, now in written form, became the law for the Israelis.  This written law was expanded by the lawmakers and came to dominate their lives, and they lost contact with the CoU and they lost control of their land that was given to them by the CoU.

Jesus and Socrates

 Jesus and Socrates had several similar characteristics.  Neither Socrates nor Jesus wrote anything down that would be permanent.  All that we know about Socrates came from his student Plato or Socrates’s near friends.  All we know about Jesus came from his disciples or close acquaintances.  Socrates was a critic of his democratic government that had become corrupt.  Jesus was critic of the Jewish leadership.  Both Socrates and Jesus upset the apple cart of the finances of the ruling class.  Both Socrates and Jesus were condemned to death by their own society.  The democracy of the Greeks was at its pinnacle when they killed Socrates. It then began its downward trend to its end.  Plato characterized Socrates as the gadfly of his democracy (a gadfly is a pesky insect that makes the horse swap its tail).  After His death, Jesus was elevated to the position of Savior of the world.

The Arrival of the Messenger from the Creator of the Universe

 All that was predestined to take place on planet Earth was explained through teaching and parables by the Messenger from the Creator of the Universe (CoU).  Like Socrates, the Messenger (Jesus) did not write anything down that was permanent.  He wrote in the sand or dust, but left no written record behind. The Messenger taught us how to get all of our earthly needs met by our Father in Heaven (The Creator of the Universe). We were taught how to live with each other in peace and harmony.  He explained how this planet Earth would one day disappear and that we should make a decision about God’s Kingdom before that happens.

All we know about this Messenger is what was written about him by his disciples and those associated with his disciples. Many written works had been printed by the time of Athanasius, the Archbishop of Alexandria.  Many of these works were ascribed to a disciple of Jesus and were called heretical. On Easter Sunday of 367, the Archbishop of Alexandria presented a list of twenty-seven books that he presented as “The Spring of Salvation.” These are the same twenty-seven books that are in the canonized New Testament Bible.  When The Archbishop sorted through this numerous assortment of written works, he also left off the list those Gospels written by eye witnesses or the followers of these eye witnesses that did not pertain to “Salvation.”  These included the Gospels of: Mary (Magdalene), Thomas, Philip, and Judas. [vii]  Therefore, the Archbishop of Alexandria put his own spin (perspective) on the canonized version of the New Testament Bible, which is identical to his list of twenty-seven books “The Spring of Salvation.”

The Nag Hammadi Scriptures

 After the Archbishop presented this list of twenty-seven books he thought to be the most authentic books, the books or writings that were not on this list started disappearing.  The library at Alexandria (known as Library City) was burned to the ground in this same time period.  The library at Antioch was burned to the ground by the ruling Christian Roman Emperor. Evidently, some monks at a monastery in northern Egypt became aware of this disappearance of books and documents related to this coming of the messenger of the CoU.  They most likely are the ones that put together in a time capsule more than fifty tractates into an earthen vase with a sealed lid.  This time capsule was found in 1945 by a gatherer of bird fertilizer beneath the cliffs outside of Nag Hammadi, Egypt. [viii] The Gospel of Mary was found in a garbage dump in northern Egypt and in the grave of a wealth Egyptian who was buried with his books. [ix]

The Gospel of Mary, although fragmented, contains some interesting statements by this messenger from the CoU. “Every nature, every modeled form, every creature exists in and with each other.  They will dissolve again into their own proper root.  For the nature of matter is dissolved into what belongs to its nature.” At the end of the nineteenth century AD, Albert Einstein presented his Theory of Relativity (that energy and matter are interchangeable), which is in agreement with this statement by this messenger from the CoU. As He was dismissing his disciples, He said, “Go then, preach the good news about the kingdom. Do not lay down any rule beyond what I determined for you, nor promulgate law like the lawgiver, or else you might be dominated by it. [x]  He was well-acquainted with the mistakes the Israelites made with their written history.

Like the written law that was transcribed by the elite Israelis while they were in exile in Babylon, from the oral tradition that became the written law for the Israelites, so has the canonized Bible and New Testament supplanted our connection with the CoU to guide us through life on planet Earth.  As stated in the first paragraph of this paper, the investigator’s first priority is to separate the facts from opinion.  Regarding the New Testament, only two writers meet this requirement to write only the facts.

Separate the Facts from Opinion

 The writer of Mark was writing as a historian. He was recording the facts that he had obtained from his own observations as a youth and from Peter and the other Apostles.  He was driven into expedience, due to a great fire in Rome, leading to the persecution of Christians in Rome.  Mark made no effort to comment on the facts that he had obtained either first hand or second hand.  Luke wrote as a professional journalist reporting to Theophilus.  His two books, Luke I and Luke II (a.k.a. Acts), obtained facts from eye witnesses and his own experiences.  It is augured by the scholars that both Luke and Matthew referenced the Gospel of Thomas and possible others they designated as “Q” – the unknown referenced documents. [xi]

In the Gospel of Matthew, he apparently wrote to the Jews to convince them that Jesus was the promised Messiah of the Prophets. Although the events that Matthew cited are confirmed in both Luke and Mark, the fact that he had formed an opinion about the outcome of his argument makes this a faulty investigation as per the second requirement of an investigator, as listed above.

In the Gospel of John, he too apparently wrote knowing the outcome of his argument and assumed that he knew the meaning of the facts without the facts themselves being proven to be true, and he made several commentaries on the events and sayings of Jesus.  Although the events and quotations of Jesus are no doubt authentic, this investigation is in violation of both the second and third requirements for an investigator.

The Gospel of Thomas and Mary are self-authenticated by their content.   The Gospel of Thomas is written in a form one would expect from a fisherman (not a man of letters as were Matthew and Luke).  Thomas’s Gospel consists of 114 quoted statements made by Jesus.  The Gospel of Mary contains information not found in any other document, but records the interactions of the Apostles and accurately displays the personality of Peter.  The Gospels of Mary (Magdalene), Thomas, Philip, and Judas are not in the canonized New Testament Bible, as they do not address the issue of salvation.  The Gospel of John is a combination of facts (events) and commentary thus is more of a challenge for the investigator to separate the facts from John’s perspective of the facts.

The Written Word vs. a Personal Connection to the CoU   

 The written word can cause a conflict with this personal connection to the CoU through our conscious.  This would be the case of any written word (document) that supersedes over this connection to the CoU though our conscience.  At the present time, this connection to the CoU has only been proven to exist in men, and then in only some men.  This could well be because only men were put to the test and women were not seen as important enough to qualify for examination.  Now that the USA and some of the world has liberated women to participate in our religious establishments, businesses and governments now may be the right time to instigate an investigation of women for this connection to the CoU through their consciences. A woman skilled in analytical psychology, as was Carl G. Jung, may be right for this task.

 Conclusion (Wrap-Up, To Sum it Up, Takeaways)

 Jesus was not the Savior of the World, but the Messenger from the Creator of the Universe as an instructor on the processes predestined to take place at their proper time.

  • Predestined processes include the changing hormones that control our behavior and the awareness of one’s conscience being connected to the Creator of the Universe.
  • For a man to become aware that his conscience is connected to the Creator of the Universe, a seed (as small as a mustard seed) must be planted into him about the “consulting function” of the CoU before the age of thirty-five years.
  • The Pentateuch became written law when transcribed from verbal tradition. The Pentateuch was written during the Jewish exile in Babylon.  This was verified by “The Seven Stars that Wandered,” and seven and seventy becoming spiritual numbers in the Pentateuch.
  • Jesus and Socrates had similar characteristic and neither wrote anything down in a lasting manner.
  • Athanasius, the Archbishop of Alexandria, reviewed all literature attributed to the coming of the Messenger and compiled a list of twenty-seven books (tractates). He introduced to his congregation on Easter Sunday in 367 AD as “The Spring of Salvation.” These are the same twenty-seven books in the canonized New Testament Bible.
  • The Gospels of Mary (Magdalene), Thomas, Philip, and Judas did not make the Archbishop’s list and began to disappear as books, and library burnings took place.
  • The Nag Hammadi Scriptures were in a time capsule, put in place during this period of change in Christianity, containing tractates not on the list of twenty-seven tractates of the Archbishop of Alexandria. This time capsule was discovered in 1945.
  • The written word has superseded over the real-time communication link to the CoU in all religious settings (with few exceptions, meditation etc.).
  • Learning from others’ mistakes! This is demonstrated in many occurrences in the Old Testament as is a guide to life. One can learn from others’ mistakes or they can learn from their own mistakes. This also applies to nations and the Israelite nation which, as recorded in the Bible, was a nation whose mistakes a nation can learn from, and not make those same mistakes and lose control of their property.
