Joseph Campbell--On Becoming an Adult


Sir Isaac Newton's work is a great example of propaganda (or mythology). There is some demonstrable principle and some solid mathematics mixed with a whole lot of mythology. Newton worked at the Royal Mint and he was a Royal Society kind of guy.  The Royal Society was created to keep information and reality screened from us in the mass public. Cosmology is about enforcing order on us, the mass human resource. We need to be managed and the almighty dollar $$$ is the best and most powerful Holy Symbol any shepherd has ever dreamt of.

Royal Society - Wikipedia

"Isaac Newton  was, as considered by others within his own lifetime, an insightful and erudite theologian. He wrote many works that would now be classified as occult studies and religious tracts dealing with the literal interpretation of the Bible." 

"Newton's conception of the physical world provided a stable model of the natural world that would reinforce stability and harmony in the civic world."

"Newton saw a monotheistic God as the masterful creator whose existence could not be denied in the face of the grandeur of all creation. Although born into an Anglican family, by his thirties Newton held a Christian faith that, had it been made public, would not have been considered orthodox by mainstream Christianity; in recent times he has been described as a heretic."

Religious views of Isaac Newton - Wikipedia

cosmos (n.) 

"c. 1200 (but not popular until 1848, as a translation of Humboldt's Kosmos), from Latinized form of Greek kosmos "order, good order, orderly arrangement," a word with several main senses rooted in those notions: The verb kosmein meant generally "to dispose, prepare," but especially "to order and arrange (troops for battle), to set (an army) in array;" also "to establish (a government or regime);" "to deck, adorn, equip, dress" (especially of women). Thus kosmos had an important secondary sense of "ornaments of a woman's dress, decoration" (compare kosmokomes "dressing the hair") as well as "the universe, the world." 

Pythagoras is said to have been the first to apply this word to "the universe," perhaps originally meaning "the starry firmament," but later it was extended to the whole physical world, including the earth. For specific reference to "the world of people," the classical phrase was he oikoumene (ge) "the inhabited (earth)." Septuagint uses both kosmos and oikoumene. Kosmos also was used in Christian religious writing with a sense of "worldly life, this world (as opposed to the afterlife)," but the more frequent word for this was aion, literally "lifetime, age."    "

"How Newton dated the Argonauts


"Visitors to Westminster Abbey who pause in front of the tomb of Sir Isaac Newton may find parts of its iconography hard to decipher. Their predecessors were similarly puzzled. The Gentleman’s Magazine on April 22, 1731, sought to inform its readers about what they might expect to see. It described the relief on the sarcophagus which shows putti engaged in experiments with a prism, a reflecting telescope, a balance and a furnace."

"These activities call to mind Newton’s work on the theory of light and colours, the invention that first brought him to the attention of the Royal Society, the gravitational theory of the Principia (published by that Society in 1687), and the public service which Newton performed as Warden and later Master of the Mint from 1696. The figure of Newton himself is recumbent on top of the sarcophagus, resting its right arm on four books. Two of these, the Principia and the Opticks (1704), came out in several editions during their author’s lifetime."

"Most of us have learned to associate Newton’s name with the mathematics of the calculus, the experimental scientific method, and the theory of gravitation.'

"Knowledge of Newton’s chronology is less widespread. One product of the technical discipline of chronology, as it was practised in the seventeenth century, has lodged itself in the contemporary mind: the suggestion by James Ussher, Archbishop of Armagh, that the world was created “upon the entrance of the night preceding the twenty third day of October” 4004 BC. In truth, Ussher’s date was one of many ventured by scholars during his lifetime. They drew on a tradition of Christian chronology – much of it focused on determining the correct cycle for the date of Easter – which in England dated back as far as the writings of Bede in the early eighth century."

"Many of Newton’s contemporaries, notably John Graunt and Sir William Petty, were interested in using statistics to estimate the historical speed of population growth in a manner that might confirm the framework of biblical time.

"Newton’s interest in scientific chronology was initially sparked by the international discussion about setting the date of Easter and about the adoption of the Gregorian reform of the calendar." 

"Happy to accept elements of the received chronology of the Hebrew Bible, Newton desired to regulate information provided by ancient dynasty lists, which appeared to describe a succession of generations. Rather than consider whether there had been enough time to people the earth, he tried to calculate how much time, on average, would be needed for the orderly succession of a given number of named rulers. He was less careful than some of his contemporaries in his analysis of textual evidence. The extreme antiquity of the Egyptian dynasties presented a problem, which Newton solved by adopting the identification made by Sir John Marsham in the early 1670s between the historical king Sesostris and the biblical pharaoh Sesac." 

"For proof of the radical shortening of secular history that this move implied, and to make it conform with the chronology of the ancient Greeks that he proposed, Newton eventually looked to astronomy. He hoped to use the periodicity provided by the precession of the equinoxes to date historical observations of the heavens, reported in the fourth century BC by Eudoxus, in order to control the earliest dates in Greek history."

"These he (Newton) associated with the expedition of the Argonauts (which he believed to be historical fact), the Trojan War, and the writings of Hesiod."

"The calculation of colures was the method that Newton used to present one of the most astonishing claims of his Chronology, which was to date the expedition of the Argonauts to 937 BC and to conclude that this was just before the birth of Priam, future king of Troy. Newton’s need for precision about the location of particular stars in order to determine colures was one cause of his harrying the Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed, for the completion of his celestial atlas. Newton’s preliminary findings intrigued Caroline, Princess of Wales, and interested numerous visitors to London in the decade or so before he died. Through one of those visitors, Leibniz’s friend the Abbé Conti, Newton’s ideas were broadcast more widely, especially in the Parisian Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres. There they were first published, and first attacked in public, generating notoriety and suspicion that directly affected their subsequent reception in England and elsewhere. Newton died before he could fully rebut the criticisms that his work received and before he could see it properly into print. The celebration of the Chronology on his tomb was therefore something of a gesture of defiance during a controversy about both secular and biblical history that was, in 1731, still in full swing. "

"They claim that what is distinctive in Newton’s style of reasoning is his use of approximation and repeated averaging to overcome uncertainties in the data provided by the senses through the practice of mathematics."

"Buchwald’s long survey of Newton’s attitude to measurement and precision in experiment begins the development of the most important and original argument that he and Feingold present. They claim that what is distinctive in Newton’s style of reasoning is his use of approximation and repeated averaging to overcome uncertainties in the data provided by the senses through the practice of mathematics. The coherence with which this theme is advanced is remarkable. It embraces some of Newton’s earliest astronomical observations, his controversial engagements over the behaviour of light and the discovery of his method of working with regnal years and historical generations. Most impressively, it provides a theoretical basis for considering the otherwise bewildering compromises made in Newton’s astronomical and historical search for the colures. This argument for intellectual unity in Newton’s method of working gives Newton and the Origin of Civilization philosophical as well as historical originality and importance. "

"Newton’s earliest pursuit of the history of civilization went hand in hand with an argument about the history of cosmology that was intended to support the methodological choices that he had made in writing the Principia." 

"One might try to bring a couple to ground. Both writers make use of dates for Newton’s manuscript writings that remain unsure. Neither really tries to explore or explain the problems involved. Occasional mention is made of the presence or absence of a particular title from Newton’s library, but comparatively little time is spent on identifying which works of chronology Newton used and how he did so."

"For example, in Newton’s theological writing (which Feingold plausibly argues had little to do with his chronology), there is a constant theme of seeking identity (“synchronisms”) between earlier and later recensions of the same prophecies, thus reducing two apparently diverse stories to one."

"Newton’s long-standing interest in understanding prophecy involved finding historical truth behind a symbolic language. The way in which he worked often required comparison and weighted approximation, even if it was not as specifically mathematical as his method in chronology. Newton’s technique here might also be compared to his persistent use of chronological information derived from the assumption that mythological figures had real historical antecedents."

"Buchwald and Feingold suggest that Newton’s professional investigation of counterfeiting at the Mint in the late 1690s encouraged him to doubt the validity of historical testimony and turn decisively to the evidence of astronomical data. Yet Newton was already sceptical about the historical witnesses to Christian doctrine by the beginning of the decade."

Sausalito (Governors Song) By Bobby Darin


Cosmology is used by religion and government as a tool for social control, Government uses Cosmology as a tool for creating and reinforcing the religion of state. This is just another form of identity politics. Religion has always been part of the estate and tool of governance. It's about identifying our place in the scheme of things for us. Religion is a screen designed to filter out any real experience of the transcendent power of the Creative principle. Human beings make art, that we mistake for reality. The Creator is.

Do you really believe your Natural state is to be a governmental citizen who just seek eternal permission for all action? Do you really believe we need all the laws and restrictions on adult personal behavior that modern governmental and corporate business practices present to us? Do you not see that we are less free today, despite all the social change, than before 1776? How is needing permission from one layer of external governance or another a sign we are Free as Adult Human Beings like Nature Intended?

Can you not see that Government is the Unnatural "state"?

Saturn (mythology) - Wikipedia

Too many minds kneel before the black cubic altar of the Roman God of Government and Commerce.

Saturn is the allegorical God of Banks, Government and the artificial construct we know as time. Saturn consumes children.
