    Both the Old and New Testaments have one thing in common: they both lack a sense of humour.

    They both lack a sense of humour because they were written in a trance in order to entrance the reader.

    This is necessary because in a trance we lose our sense of humour and become suggestible.

    And once we are suggestible, we will believe anything.

    Comedy seems to be one of those things that are...culturally subjective. British dry humor vs. Japanese zany humor, etc. You either "get it" or you don't. Ancient Hebrews and Greeks seem to be wholly different cultures from the present world, no?

    But when the ancient texts are translated into the vernacular, we see clearly that they lack a sense of humour.

    This is true of all sacred texts from the Bible to. the Bhagavid Gita. So all sacred. texts are written in a trance to entrance the reader.

    Fortunately we started to wake from our eons old trance in the.18th century in the Enlightenment of evidencee and reason.

    So mbti is a throwback to entrancement. It replaces evidence and reason with what is plausible

    So mbti is astrology for the college educated.

    I do understand that being.woken rudely from our entrancement is a. shock.

    I agree. Many Bible translations these days have certain..."liberties" taken for ulterior motives. Protestant translators are notorious for this.

    Really?

    Unfortunately, it seems becoming entranced is a lot more...efficient with ready-made sleep inducers in the form of "entertainment" although I'm loathe to call it that.

    I'll buy that for a dollar.

    It is a shock! But, once you are "woke" you sort of go into a rage about being "lied" to all your life. It's a mini-death. A death of your old Self, so you likewise experience the stages of grief. It is possible to get stuck at a certain stage because it feeds the ego as it refuses to let go of its baggage and move-on. The goal is to reach acceptance and fully die to your old self. Only then can you be resurrected like the phoenix a better person, one step closer to being Human.

    I believe all of life is a series of deaths and resurrections culminating in our final resurrection (or rebirth if you prefer). Another key is to (try, at least to) handle your ego death gracefully. As with anything else, ego death seems to get easier with neptic practice.
