Under Control of Evil

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

In Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Ferdinand, in desperation at the terrible plight of ship and crew, cries out, “Hell is empty and all the devils are here!”

And looking around at our situation today, it wouldn’t be difficult to reach the same conclusion. Except that our modern materialistic science doesn’t allow for that conclusion. Oh, we might utter the words, but I doubt most of us would use words like “hell” and “devils” in anything more than an illustrative sense. We almost certainly wouldn’t mean them literally.

But there is a very modern science emerging here in Brazil that does consider the power of spiritual influence to inspire the human being – both for good or for evil. And yes, I do mean a science. And what the scientist responsible for this view, Dr. Norberto Keppe, maintains is that the evil is winning as long as we don’t have more consciousness of it. That means, reuniting theology and philosophy again with exact science, as used to be the case. So we can really understand our situation.

Troubled Science

Although scientists today are generally against any idea of a transcendental reality, it wasn’t always like that.

Pasteur said, “The more I study nature, the more I’m amazed at the work of the Creator.” And for centuries, the greatest geniuses considered the ultimate creative force of God fundamental to any understanding of reality.

And then, it all changed.

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, Troubled Science.

Before we dive into our admittedly heated subject today, let me just say Happy New Year to you, and send you my best wishes for a successful and conscious 2008. And consciousness we will need more of to begin to address our looming environmental crises particularly, but our other social difficulties as well.

I, like many individuals in all countries on the globe, have been personally interested in that for years, but it wasn’t until discovering the work of Brazilian/Austrian psychoanalyst, Norberto Keppe, that I began to understand the source of all the problems. Keppe’s work outlines very precisely the psychological distortions that has led human society away from its true purposes, and caused us to erect social structures that actually make it impossible to live to our human potential.

I started this radio program to begin to talk about these foundational discoveries because … well, this is my medium. But there are other ways to find out more. Write me at rich@richjonesvoice.com and I’ll steer you in the right direction.

My dear friend, Susan Berkley, and I will be starting a special online and teleclass program very shortly based on Keppe’s work, so stay tuned for more on that.

Well, today, my colleague, Cesar Soos, and I are going to jump into the heat of the fire again. Seems whenever we try to offer a critique of modern-day science, our arguments hit up against a formidable wall of skepticism and unrepentant commitment to the current dogma that unfortunately characterizes the scientific world view today.

But something changed in science. For centuries, scientists and philosophers were pretty much united in their consideration of God in their scientific understandings. Even Descartes, who was instrumental in the so-called Scientific Revolution that sought to free the human being from what it saw as the repressive superstition of organized religion, was a devout believer to the end of his days.

But the scientific proposals that burst forth from that period of history influence us even today – and not necessarily for the better.

Keep your mind open and join us for a very important discussion.
