Evil in the Modern World

I’m Richard Lloyd Jones, and this is Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

In the philosophy of religion, evil has always been a thorny issue. Is evil something inherent in the essence of man and nature? Or is it a willful act of ill-intentioned human beings?

And then there’s the whole confusion of natural disasters – the presence of which have even caused some thinkers to deny the existence of a perfectly good God. If hurricanes exist, this argument goes, perfect goodness doesn’t exist.

And I think it’s also safe to say that the theological concept of the existence of a being of evil as described in Judeo-Christian scripture is also controversial. A rebellion in heaven led by one of God’s brightest angels, Lucifer, is today treated mostly as allegorical or metaphorical – tales told to illustrate moral truth but not meant to be taken literally.

But in Norberto Keppe‘s deep science of Analytical Trilogy, spiritual influences in the myriad psycho-social crises we face today are considered. In fact, in Keppe’s experience, the spiritual component is more necessary.

True Co-Creation

I’m Richard Lloyd Jones, and this is Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

I was walking down the streets of Vancouver a number of years ago after I’d been living away from the west coast for some time, and I bumped into an old acquaintance of mine in Kitsilano, the old hippy neighbourhood in the ’70s.

“What are you doing these days?” I asked her. “Channeling yoga,” came back the straight-faced reply.

Well, she was always a little out there, but it leads into what I wanted to talk about today. The field of spiritual growth has exploded over the past 50 years, maybe beginning with the Beatles and their Maharishi experience in India in the ’60s. But it’s a market with a lot of choices. From the more traditional, like church and prayer, to the more trendy, like Buddhism and meditation, to the downright weird, like, well, channeling yoga.

What to make of it all? In Dr. Norberto Keppe‘s Analytical Trilogy, he’s united theology back into science to give us a more wholistic view. And that means some universal principles. True Co-Creation, today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

Women and the Dark Side

A few hundred years ago, the notions of heaven and hell, of God and Lucifer, were respected themes for composers, poets, and painters. Milton’s Paradise Lost contains the idea of Lucifer endeavoring to defeat Christ and regain his former position in paradise. Raphael captured the epic battle where the Archangel Michael vanquished Satan. Beethoven wrote of the desire of man to know God.

And then, somewhere along the way, the devil became largely erased as a factor in popular culture. Any modern educated person who considers the battle between the forces of dark and the forces of light as anything but a mythical allegory is considered … well, not modern today.

But of course, it still persists. The rumors of rock stars making the Faustian bargain still abound, the Rolling Stones had dire repercussions to Sympathy for the Devil at Altamont, and many modern pageants have demonic idolatry built right into their ceremonies.

So I think it’s still relevant. Women and the Dark Side, today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

Consciousness for a Conscious Planet

A conscious planet … wow, is that ever needed right now. I know many people are feeling that something’s just not right in our world today, but don’t know how to characterize this general malaise they feel any more than that. Our program is trying to address that … indeed, Dr. Norberto Keppe‘s science of Analytical Trilogy has been shedding the light on what’s gone so wrong for over 50 years now. Either we’re slow learners, or we’ve really been avoiding the consciousness he brings.

So, no more avoiding. Understanding how humanity painted itself so tightly into this corner is here in our program today, along with some hope for a way out. Or at the very least, how to cope with the difficulties and offer a hand out to those in more serious need.

First in our program today, Susan Berkley with some thoughts on modern Judaism here shortly after the Jewish New Year, along with some thoughts on the Occupy Wall Street protest movement. Then Claudia Bernhardt Pacheco with her perspectives from a lifetime career as a psychoanalyst on what’s gone so wrong, and how to fix it.

Romance, Ideals and Transcendence: Living a Meaningful Life

We have become inured to the huge levels of injustice and corruption perpetrated by our political/economic system today, and this needs to change. The current disturbing levels of apathy appear to be the reason for the success of Stéphane Hessel‘s Cry Out! – a French publishing phenomenon. This 13-page pamphlet encourages youth to recapture the French spirit of resistance by rejecting the “insolent, selfish” power of money and markets and by defending the social “values of modern democracy.”

Norberto Keppe‘s, Liberation of the People, written the the mid 1980s, offered a call to all idealists, all who believe in goodness, truth and beauty, to unite so a new society could be built, the Kingdom of Man on Earth. Keppe foreshadowed Hessel’s admonitions, and he goes deeper, too, explaining how we got so off track and offering concrete solutions to fix things.

We explore how that’s more than idealism and actually approaches true romance, today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

The Science of Transcendence

What is the true nature of man? Is it good, beautiful and true? Or a mix of those elements with corruption and evil?
That question strikes deep to the issue philosophers have struggled to answer for centuries. Today, we are very fortunate to have some conclusions on the subject, originating from Norberto Keppe‘s school of Analytical Trilogy.
And the conclusions reached at Keppe’s scientific society allow us to look with new eyes on transcendence, psychic phenomena, death and human meaning. All of which we’ll do on our program today.

The Evil Man Does: Going Behind the Curtains of Power

It is extremely important to perceive that the established powers have been organized to control the will of the people, paralyzing their capacity to act. In fact, there is ample evidence that the socio-economic power in charge today holds back the development of humankind.

But most critics (and there are many, including many excellent ones) can’t connect the dots to give us a complete analysis of it because they’re lacking the understanding of the science of psycho-socio pathology. Which is exactly what we bring every week on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

In spite of being attacked relentlessly by the powerful because the powerful know that if his work gets into the world, they lose their hold on power, Norberto Keppe has been resolute in his condemnation of the pathology of power.

We’ll go deeply behind the curtains of power to expose all that on today’s show.
