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.

The Strength of the Weaker Sex

Millions were killed senselessly in the Middle Ages.

They couldn’t vote for decades.

Their bodies sell everything from perfume to piston rings.

They’re our mothers and sisters, bosses and colleagues. And maybe soon, presidents.

They’ve caused wars, and yet are the biggest champions of peace.

And talking about their pathology can get you in some trouble!

Today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head, we’ll explore the strengths of the weaker sex. Of course, calling them that reveals our inversion in considering only the external, considering strength only in the size and amount of muscles.

More in a minute. Just wanted to remind you of our International Congress of Analytical Trilogy coming up next March, 2008, here in Brazil. A perfect opportunity for you to learn more about the work of Norberto Keppe and how Analytical Trilogy can be applied to all areas of human endeavor. Through our Trilogical lens, we’ll be investigating the areas of health and psychosomatics, education, media, psychotherapy, economics, arts, science and metaphysics, ufology, ecology, philosophy, sociopathology, spirituality. It will be a state of the union, so to speak, on where we are in humanity at understanding how the human being works. This goes deep to the root of all our problems, so any of you involved in social activism of any kind, you’ll want to join us to get a handle on the key reasons why we’ve come so unstuck in so many areas all at the same time. And that’s because we’re seeing the impact now of the centuries of inverted human values. Make a note and start planning for the Easter week, Mar. 20 – 23, 2008. Write me if you’re interested, rich@richjonesvoice.com

Our topic today is a hot one. But beautiful in how we can analyze it through Analytical Trilogy. Trilogy, by the way, stands for the union of philosophy, theology and science, or thought, feeling and action in the human being. And it’s necessary to consider all three if we’re to have a complete view of anything. Modern science has cut away the two pillars of philosophy and theology, and so wobbles incompletely on its own trying to make sense of the world and its phenomena, and failing. Without the upward view into the abstraction and consideration of being and spirituality, science condemns itself to a strictly material view, and its incomplete and inadequate conclusions suffer as a result.

Back in the 1990s, Dr. Claudia Pacheco wrote a courageous book called Women on the Couch: An Analysis of Women’s Psychopathology. Some women were not happy. But I found it illuminating in highlighting the problems in relationships and lives of both men and women. And Dr. Pacheco has been developing her views since. Let’s find out the latest, today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.
