What Happened So Now Weve Got To The
point where the story says while human beings became self–conscious and here’s here’s the problem with that the problem is is that we’re terribly self–conscious about our inadequacies and our vulnerabilities and that that sets up enmity between men and women and it dooms women to pain in childbirth and child-rearing and it dooms men to work. It’s a big problem okay so now. The next story that comes up in the sequence is the story of Cain and Abel. Now you know we talked about the dragon of chaos and then the terrible mother and the creative mother and on the tyrannical father and the secure father and then the adversary and the hero. Cain and Abel are the first manifestation of the adversary and the hero and what happens is they emerge as soon as the genesis in the original.
The Story Basically Proposes Is That Once
people became self-conscious two modes of being emerged as a consequence of that and one mode is represented by Cain and the other mode is represented by Abel and that’s echoed in the story of the hostile brothers in stories of hostile brothers everywhere, but it’s also paralleled in Christianity by the idea of the relationship between Christ and Satan. So it’s like Cain and Abel are precursors to the idea of Christ and and and and Satan. Now what happens is that so Cain is the older brother and that makes him sort of the embodiment of tradition. He would also be the favored one in terms of the traditions of the Ancient Israelites because he would be the one that inherits everyone so everything so he’s actually the one that’s he’s like the embodiment of tradition and there’s some add. Some advantages to that because he’s privileged because of it, but there’s some disadvantages because to the degree that culture itself has become sterile and inappropriate, and he manifests that that means that he manifests error by merely being what he was now.
What Happens With An Enable Is The Young
is the young brother So Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground okay, so there’s there’s a there’s a dichotomy of professions here and people have read that in all sorts of different ways, but one of the ways that you can think about it is that there are valid different modes of being in the world. You know so you can be in this situation. You can be a tiller of the ground or a keeper of animals, but in the world in general you can adopt any number of rules. That suffice you can be a plumber or you can be a lawyer? And there are there’s there’s ways of acting within those rules that transcend the rules themselves and so that’s part of what’s being exemplified in Cain and Abel so they can they can function in the world despite their different their different roles in process of time. It came to pass that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord and Abel.

He Also Brought Of The Firstlings Of
his flock and of the fat thereof now that’s very archaic the idea of sacrifice okay so basically, what happens is that you’re trying to get God on your side, and so God seems to want something from you because he keeps demanding this and that so you might say well reality wants something from you. It wants you to behave in a certain way so that you don’t suffer any more than you have to and so that things go well for you. Now. Human beings at this point in time are trying to work out exactly what that means and they’ve already got to the point where they’re conceptually sophisticated enough to understand that that means that sacrifices are necessary. Now you remember that it’s only prior to this that human beings discover time itself right that’s when they discovered that.
Theyre They Become Self-Conscious And Discover Their
extension across time and so. One of the consequences of realizing that your extended across time is that you also will come to the realization that you may have to let go of certain valuable things right now in order to make things work better in the future and you can’t imagine that people just woke up and figure that out I cook people God only knows how long to sort that out It’s tens of thousands of years to come up with that realization. First of all they would have acted it out like bees do you know they collect honey and they make it through the winter, but they don’t know what the hell they’re doing or maybe they do. Maybe they’re little supercomputers like these bloody atoms, but you know what I mean you can out this sort of. thing out without realizing what you’re up to and the motif of sacrifice seemed to be exactly that people stumbled on to the dramatic idea that if you gave up something of value.
There Would Be Some Reasonable Possibility That
God would smile on you in the future okay so so that’s why there’s the sacrifices now you might say well why did they burn them and the reason for that is well as far as I can tell people are trying to understand what the ultimate fabric of existence is and I think that you can feel that sometimes in one of the places that people feel that regularly is when they’re out at night and they look up at the sky and they see this immense blanket of eternity that’s laid out before them and that induces a feeling of awe and I think that that archaic people. took the notion of that awe that was a consequence of this apprehension and associated that with some something like communion with the Divine, which is actually quite reasonable because when you are looking out into space, you are looking into the farthest reaches of being. You can see back millions hundreds of millions of years back into time and you see you gaze out into the infinite expanses of being so it’s not unreasonable to assume that in some sense at that moment you have some connection with what’s infinite whatever that happens to be and I think that you feel that rather than thinking so anyways. The idea basically emerged that the divine was up in the sky and that because the divine was up in the sky, you could maybe communicate it with it by sending messages up there and one of the ways you could do. That was with smoke and so if you’re burning these things that you’re offering you get to push the smoke up to God and he can do a molecular analysis and see if what you’re offering is of any reasonable quality and if it seems to me, then poof, you know God’s gonna be thrilled about that or maybe he’s not now What happens is that Cain’s offerings are rejected and Abel’s offerings are accepted and so what that means is that Cain gets the short end of the stick and Abel gets everything good happening to him so what you see happening is that there’s the notion of two paths of being one that’s favored and one that isn’t favored now.
The Story Is Very Ambivalent About
why Cain is not favored and Abel is and you you can you can read it multiple ways you can just say. Well Guards basically being a son of a and he’s not gonna give Katie anything just because he’s not in a very good mood that day or you can say well. Abel’s doing something right and Cain isn’t and I think that interpreting the story in either of those ways. This is perfectly illuminating because part of the time in life. It seems like someone’s doing everything right and still they’re just getting laid waste left right and center and someone else is doing something terribly and things are going well for them and but then you also see the reverse where someone who’s doing well gets rewarded and someone who isn’t doesn’t so there’s an ambivalence about it now.
I Think The Story Does Indicate That
Cain is doing something wrong, but it it doesn’t do that until later so anyways Sorry let me just go down to the. Next section here so what it can enable sacrifice? In the Biblical version cited here the nature of Cain sacrifices left unclear except that it is of the ground. It’s vegetative and therefore bloodless. Every canonical tale, However, carries with it a surrounding cloud of similar stories. Some derivatives some the product of a different developmental path and tradition some intermingled with other stories.
In Some Variants.
Cain sacrifices not only of the ground, but it’s of low quality. Cain is unwilling to offer up the finest fruits of his Labor‘s to God. Thus he does not really sacrifice anything he wants to keep everything good to himself. So he’s selfish as well as faithless.
Abel By Contrast, Offers Up The Best
of what he has what does this mean once again. We already know we say to our children do your best do not hide your light under a bushel. We do not say conserve your best or hide your best. We mean offer the best you have do it in good faith. You will not be absolutely assured of success, but your chances will begin to increase to the degree that such increase is possible certainly it’s no overstatement to say that if you do not believe this you at least wish with all your heart that it was true.
This Is Hope To Not Believe This Is
to risk descent into the deepest chasms of cynicism, so what happens God accepts Abel’s sacrifice offers him respect and renders his life acceptable Despite its terrible limitations. Cain’s sacrifice. However, he rejects this drives Cain into a murderous rage rage, so the Lord God had respect unto Abel and his offering. But unto Cain and his offering he did not have respect so the idea basically is that Abel makes these sacrifices. He’s putting forth the best that he has he’s doing his best and because of that it’s actually working everyone likes Abel.
You Know He Has Hes Getting Along With
his wives his flocks are increasing. He’s a good guy. It’s like everything’s going well, whereas Cain things aren’t going very well at all and no one really cares for him and besides that he’s burning with jealousy because you know. Despite the fact that he’s slaving away raising all these vegetables and trying to offer them to God. Nothing is going his way so not only are things going badly for him, but he’s increasingly disaffected by it and you know you.
Its Not Difficult To Understand That
you know perfectly well that what happens to you if you’re working away. You think diligently and properly and nothing is going your way and some other son of a is just flourishing like mad beside you that that’s going to make you vengeful and and irritated and anxious and angry and and homicidal for that matter and it doesn’t take very long before people reach that stage at least not in their fantasies. Now The story says and Cain was very wroth and his countenance fell and what that meant is He’s angry and his face changes to indicate that so he’s got this continual look of perpetual dis effect. Asian and anger on his face because things aren’t going well for him so that’s fine so then he goes and has a chat with God because he’s not very happy about.
