This modern version of varna dharma is not exclusively tied to more or less preposterous racial purity mythologies. The squabble between the two halves of nobility in France had in genealogies of some of the Kingdom's greatest houses exposed in a brief to the regent as fraudulent and manufactured. Judicial nobility noblesse de robe through archival research documents the following in It is difficult to believe that the genealogies of many of France's great houses in could be more -or less- artificial and preposterous than the geneaology of any U.
S president, Mormon founder, political agitator, French peer, banker or their ilk. Stretching the fixation with bloodlines to the feasible extreme, even SS leader and brand manager Himmler could not -in spite of all the pomp and bile deployed- ask potential SS members to go farther back in time than mid XVIII century to document their ancestry.
Of course, Hebrew sages were not Himmler's preferred patriarchs. Instead, the NSDAP regime preferred elusive atlantean mythologies, and prodigious races hidden at such godly places as Agartha at the Earth's core or Shambala a mystical kingdom hidden somewhere in Asia. Other mythicists talk endlessly of admiralty law and of people as corporations to denounce oppressive government and unjust laws.
Opinions in mythicist circles have it that Jordan Maxwell, a great proponent of admiralty law, and of tricks the common man ought to use to escape from the government's clutch, had his vehicle impounded. Restraining orders and crippling court judgments were passed against Maxwell through the justice system in spite of his professed mastery in handling admiralty law that ought to render modern government ineffective.
Also, Maxwell That's the contemporary edition of the pacte de famine, or a 'master plan' that saw -in the French XVIII century- the archetypal trickster monarchs, nobility, clergy etc scheming to starve people to death. Some again urge people to buy only silver and gold to denounce the shady role bank er s play anticipating future catastrophes, as if governments hadn't disciplined and restrained the possession of such commodities before, and as if common people could dispose of it without financial institutions acting as intermediaries; or as if ax-wielding warlords of an hypothetical post-apocalyptic world were in any way obligated to bow in front of a powerless hobo and his fifty gold coins.
It almost seems mythicists are paving the way to a better loot by fueling the rush to precious metals before clampdown, a crash in market prices or some other purely coincidental routine accident of history. One finds people on all corners of the political spectrum advocating this doomsday flumadiddle: from U.
S The net result is that the bath water of all the esoteric gibberish is thrown away with the baby of the real threat posed by unjust laws and other interests at work. When mythicists discuss many of the same topics discussed here, namely about psychic unity of mankind, they intersperse their narratives -spanning across all provinces of the accuracy spectrum- with blatant nonsense.
It shall be properly emphasized how such topics -the row of crucified saviors, astrotheology etc- are by no means a breakthrough by mythicists, new-agers and suchlike, for Victorian scholars had already discussed such similarities in detail for example Sharpe's. At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
Mark Statements from the documentary The Naked Truth. Currently the first point of Aries is in the constellation of Pisces. The precession of the equinoxes obviously also affects the direction of the north celestial pole. Although this now points very close to the star Polaris 0. Cowan , emphasis added. Are those grotesque mistakes truly accidental? Entire layers of Victorian-Belle Epoque scholarship of considerable insight have simply been discarded because they do not contain the buzz-words, nods and world-view associated with post-WWII scholarship.
That allows newagers the various Acharya S. In mythicist circles, some contend Maxwell 'stole' content or arguments from M. Hall , a popular dabbler in theosophical matters. The final word rests with the readers. I must point out in this place that the fierce and persistent partiality of Je-Rem-Jah for the Chaldeans could only have had its origin in or support from religious bias ; perfected as this was at Babylon upon his successors and disciples. But the tomb of Bel-Marduk was shown at Babylon, and he was perhaps considered there as a man-god, yet he may at some other town have been the highest concept of Deity; and the like may be said of Nebo the learned; still, the position and attributes of each of them, as well as Hoa or Ea, are recognized as generally corresponding with the positions of Je-Hoah and Mardechai and Msheh in the Hebrew books, though, as compared with the fierce, intolerant, and bloodthirsty Jehoah,the Chaldean Hoa was a far loftier concept.
Brewer Dionysos was, in reality, not an Aryan deity, but of Egyptian origin, having been introduced into Greece at a very early time, either from 'Egypt, where he was worshipped as Mises, or, more probably, from Pheenicia, where he was worshipped under the name of Ies, which accounts for the fact that hero personifications of Dionysos in later times were accorded the designation of Iesous A very popular deity of the Lower Nile was Mises drawn from water , the sun-god of wine and mirth, who was born on Mount Nyssa Sinai , and was found as a babe in a box floating on the Red Sea, and who, by means of his magic wand, took his army dry-shod through the Sea and the rivers Orontes and Hydaspes, drew- water from rocks Yahoshua Another mythicist, D.
Murdock, recently published a book detailing the overlapping of the Jesus and Horus lore, much as Victorian scholars had done in a bygone age. Be it as it may, that insures the in-fighting, diverse crowd of atheist homo- and xenophiles, Soviet partisans bereft of a cause on the left; reaganites, survivalists and tea party 'patriots' on the right get their daily fix under the tutelage of new spiritual mentors quite in tune with the time's sensibilities.
It shall be noted how this practice is not confined to mythicists and improbable conspiracy theorists. Out of Weber's celebrated three forms of authority in history, only the rational-legal kind could be construed as modestly innovative -and in tune with Weber's times-. The traditional and charismatic kinds could easily find suitable descriptions under the Graeco-Roman categories of mos and tyranny as discussed elsewhere in this writing, with no need for neologisms. Even the rationallegal form of authority, however, found historical embodiments in the great empires of the past Alexandrian, Roman, Chinese It is easy to see how disinformation unfolds.
It is easy to ponder the possible legal and political consequences, but it all went smoothly. Arte was soon back on track boycotting and censoring a documentary that detailed how 'good' post-war German parties financed themselves with tainted NSDAP money The Octogon System by J. Meurice, Distressed executives with swollen eyes lamented the possible legal and political ricochet to explain their bizarre behavior.
What all those filmmakers may be up to is left to the reader to consider, but it looks like a well-defined strategy to blur and misinform. Several locations have been suggested as the appropriate site, among which Sardinia, the Azores and Erudite authors state their case in detail: modern readers may think that the Antarctic option is modern research's offspring, irrespective of any claims to exactitude it's impossible to get into here.
Yet in , some G. McIver had published a piece of Australian colonial fiction: Neuroomia, or a highly advanced civilization at the South Pole. In the South Pacific, Hiva Hawaiki is a lost continent hailed in the lore as homeland of great chiefs: the purported ancestors of various island tribes spread across the Pacific. In , minister and Boston University President W. Allen a Boston philologist reworked the theory in the pole shifts every Marxism did the same with immemorial utopian socialism and the slogans of the bloody German peasant wars that had already dissected the role of civil and religious power in the hierarchy of exploitation, or middlemen's sinister role.
Buddhism had already uttered Marxism's core assumptions, too. In Ptolemaic Egypt -for example-, novels prophesied the demise of the Graeco-Macedonian elite, and the rise of oppressed Egyptians. Since they could not imagine such a free society which also contained the whites whom they knew, some depicted the whites as their slaves in heaven, while others consigned all white slaveowners to hell ibid; 45; Lang Clarke summarizes thus the general atmosphere, and the impact of one formerly obscure book on the evergreen literary scene of fictional wars to come.
Another patriotic and Germanophobic English gentleman starts exorcising the Hun threat as soon as the German Empire is born. So, without fully realizing the exceptional novelty of the means and methods, he chose to present his fears for the future of his country in a highly dramatic and totally realistic projection. And then, after the excitement had died down, Chesney's admonitory tale of disaster and defeat went on to provide both form and technique for the many forecasts of coming wars and future battles that began to appear in ever-increasing numbers throughout the new industrial nations.
British, French, German and Italian propagandists learnt from the English colonel how to deliver forceful lessons on naval policy or warnings about the dangers of military unpreparedness in a pattern of fiction that the middle classes and- later on in the s- the new literate masses could readily comprehend. Long before there had been a succession of occasional pamphlets and satires that had used the description of future wars and battles as a means of propaganda.
Few of these attracted more than a passing interest, and not one of them ever enjoyed success on a scale that could bear any comparison with the world-wide notoriety of The Battle Of Dorking. And eleven days after that a distinguished officer of the Royal Engineers, writing from the India Office, sent John Blackwood the outline of a short story.

He believed that if Blackwood 's Magazine published his story it would drive home the need for a complete reorganization of the British military system. It was the starting-point for 'that wonderful and stirring romance', as Admiral Colomb called The Battle of Dorking, Clarke , ,27 This was in the style of the imaginary wars of the future that had become familiar matter in France, Germany and the United Kingdom after the Battle of Dorking had in given the first international warning of the change in the conditions of warfare.
During the last three decades of the century, as the demand for tales of the future went on growing, more and more writers learnt from Verne how to exploit the stock-in-trade of the ambitions of the age. A new race of journalists and popular writers began to provide complacent stories about the wonders to-Come for the mass of literate citizens in Europe and the United States.
They traded in the terrors and delights of technological society with their exciting stories of space travel, future worlds, death rays, demon scientists, imaginary wars, flying machines and the rest of the marvels of science fiction Clarke Different mythologies obsess different epochs.
Confucianism, Chinese folk religion and Taoism posit divine hierarchies -both in heaven and hell- that look exactly like a supernatural doppelgaenger of the bureaucratic networks keeping the Chinese regimes of that day in place through mandatory reporting, intelligence and administrative activities, in turn counterbalanced by audits and rounds of promotion and demotion within the divine hierarchy in what looks somewhat like a joint Belle.
The stale, ossified remains or mold of myth-making at some point solidify and give that peculiar feedback-loop, broken record effect. It typically coexists with the 'if It is interesting enough how propaganda could handle the same set of slogans or subjects in order to mean just about anything, without any apparent contradiction: a Rorschach test. By the same token, objections to propaganda could alternatively be labeled as the pinnacle of moral maturity when exposing the 'enemy' , or as morally infantile anti-nationalism if not treason pure and simple.
It works exactly the same in completely apolitical circumstances. In , Edison went about searching for a filament that could stay illuminated for a long period of time. After trying nearly 8, possibilities, he found one—a carbonized cotton thread. So Edison discovered a way to make a lightbulb work for an extended period of time? Not really. Remember Joseph Swan? Well, he discovered using a carbonized piece of cotton thread would do the trick, too—ten months earlier.
In fact, he filed a patent infringement suit against Edison and won. Gregory Double dealers could either be without honor nor conscience if serving the enemy , or could be having just found their honor and conscience if serving 'the good guys'. The 'good turncoat' -or the enemy turned ally who now helps to chase his former kinsmen- is a character dear to political narratives. Formerly a violent racist skinhead, German Ingo Hasselbach transited to the service of minority lobbies.
The votary turns whistle-blower to denounce the threat their group of old poses. Among fringe mythicists, it is common enough to find people switching sides to and fro the Christian to the zeitgeist Maxwell, Icke, Tsarion, Murdock Chris White of Chris White Ministries , who now mills Christian documentaries to debunk mythicists and new age thought, admits he used to endorse new-age mythologies. As this writer contends, the irresistible human mind's penchant to aggressively and militantly believe supersedes the actual objects of belief, much as in other contexts the worship of the hero's sacred blood corpse, values, journey Commitment therapies can prove efficacious only in positive communities ; this type of therapy would also be transformative, as in various kinds of religious conversion, when the personality is supposed to undergo profound changes, so that even the name of the subject may be changed.
That is why the final scene of the famous 'nuclear mayhem' movie The. Day After became so famous: the doctor comes to his dilapidated town to die from radiation exposure, then he first chastises then hugs other sick survivors he catches Alexandra Feodorovna is German neither in mind nor spirit and has never been so.
In , at the age of six, she lost her mother and thenceforward resided habitually at the court of England. Her bringing-up, education and mental and moral development were thus quite English. She is still English in her outward appearance, her deportment, a certain strain of inflexibility and Puritanism, the uncompromising and militant austerity of her conscience and, last but not least, in many of her personal habits. That is all that is left of her western origin.
In her inmost being she has become entirely Russian. In the first place I have no doubt of her patriotism, notwithstanding the legend I see growing up around her. Her love for Russia is deep--and true. And why should she not be devoted to her adopted country which stands for everything dear to her as woman, wife, sovereign and mother? When she ascended the throne in she knew already that she did not like Germany, and particularly Prussia. In recent years she has taken a personal dislike to the Emperor William and he it is whom she holds exclusively responsible for the war, this "wicked war which makes Christ's heart bleed every day.
It is quite unsurprising that Alexandra's eccentricities and -broadly put'issues' helped precipitate the explosive situation that brought about the Russian regime's collapse, and culminated with the Bolshevik takeover, and the execution of the royal family. Because 'matters of memory' prove to be fleeting at best, in -officially in Russia's Imperial family the Bolsheviks had executed as arch-. Another exemplary turncoat is Pu Yi. The infant Emperor of China transited to the service of Japan as monarch of the puppet State of Manchuria. After the war, he served as poster boy for Maoist political reeducation rising -with Mao's approval- to the rank of low-key Communist party bureaucrat.
In fact, irrespective of whose armband happens to be 'in' a particular season, the figure of the turncoat raises perplexities at various levels, for it represents the inverted doppelgaenger of the hero-savior. Mussolini, too, had harsh words, and Hitler's were The wording is actually not Lenin's. It went down into popular political culture as coming from the Soviet world. Unlike turncoats, heroes and saviors, in fact, are famous because their honor is eminently non negotiable; because they keep their current beliefs, and remain very vocal about it.
In spite of all possible prohibitions and negative reactions, they keep getting back for more down to their supreme sacrifice. Interestingly enough, that's the same path savior-heroes, and compulsive gamblers alcoholics and other addicts take: going back for more in spite of failure or apparent discomfort so that a supposed manifest destiny may unfold; of course, this regime's savior-hero is another regime's terrorist, mass-murderer, vandal or rabble-rouser:.
Risk-seeking behavior is often inefficient. If someone is truly risk seeking over monetary gains, then he or she can be exploited.

Huettel The common man is also urged to imitate the ghosts of myth: the last five relationships or investment portfolios ended in a disaster a judge eventually settled at the participant's high personal cost, but this new one political party, stock market portfolio, romantic partner As money keeps changing hands, regulators and parties with vested interests rub their hands gleefully.
In that state, you realize that when the track closes, you will have locked in those losses, and because you are human, you hate that. Thus, you become risk seeking, picking riskier bets in hopes of producing the larger wins you need to return to the black. Hamilton Huettel explains that scholarly analysis of scores of online poker games revealed people who won more also lost the highest amount of money.
Huettel likewise describes how human brains are wired rewards prediction error to count as positive events small wins in that situation , and losses as bad events. One big loss, however, negates the advantages of a score of small wins, which is not factored in by the system. Edison may have failed all the way to success, but the field of intellectual history is littered with innumerable unknown names -not necessarily less skilled than their famous counterparts- who failed -or even succeeded- all the way to penniless oblivion.
Del Pretto was an Italian who had in published a theory similar to Einstein's relativity. In a situation that involves countless other people, both Manzetti and Del Pretto are today known only to a handful of novelty seekers and antiquarians on the fringe.
At Rome December 9, , a diverse mob of indignados, hecklers, left- and right-wing political radicals clashes with police while protesting against various kinds of inequities. Politicians in their palaces pull strings either lionizing or censoring the event trying to cash returns on image. The 'spontaneous' rise of the have-nots, or another political machination? Such protesting crowd nicknamed movimento dei forconi, pitchfork movement presents itself as silent majority's voice, a rag-tag rabble uniting havenots, the unemployed, farmers on the brink and so forth.

There is a special reason, insider's report, explanation, eye-witness account and so forth that prophets of doom -or the like- try desperately to get out. The meek 'misguided but always well-meaning' masses shall invariably change opinion upon hearing this fabulous explanation, counter-cultural truth and so forth. Now Pope Francis I -and so many other sources- claim exactly the opposite. Karna in the Mahabharata honors his word out of gratitude, even if that means fighting against his own brothers.
As well, internet searches reveal no trace of Maxwell -and Chandler- before He then chivalrously returns to Carthage, where he is tortured to death:. They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him. We are going up to Jerusalem," he said, "and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles Mark The 'fire in their minds' is irresistible, and they are supposed to suffer bodily whenever they are not living up to 'the great ideas', proclaiming 'the best of all causes' and so forth for example Jeremiah ss.
As Quintilian very well put it: the same words may be received as signs of folly, freedom or pride on the sole basis of who is uttering them. It is a right fool's word.

It is enough to ponder the shift in public acceptance or recognition as the various Faurisson, McGowan, Richwine, Zemmour, MacDonald, Zundel, Churchill try their luck at the very same game pastor King played. Bakunin had similar words for a French minister who had exiled him.
Socrates famously urged the jury to award him the honors of an Olympic winner for his services: even those who might have accepted exile as a compromise voted then to put him to death. In , John Rigas, eighty-year-old founder of Adelphia Communications, and his forty-eight-year-old son, Timothy Rigas, were convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy and for bilking investors in what the judge described as one of the largest frauds in corporate history.

Let the worthy citizens of Chicago get their liquor the best they can. I'm sick of the job-it's a thankless one and full of grief. I've been spending the best years of my life as a public benefactor. Bernard Madoff, in prison for the biggest pyramid scheme fraud in Wall Street history, says that in reality he made a lot of people rich and that he suffered alone.

A con-man sentenced for multi-millionaire fraud told the present writer once how the countless people he had benefited had been exploiting him all along, but that he nonetheless wished everybody well. Its roots are too deep, born in a poisonous society which is falling apart; anarchism is a violent reaction against the established order. It represents the egalitarian and libertarian aspirations which are opening a breach in contemporary authority.
It is everywhere, which makes anarchy elusive. It will finish by killing you. After all, theirs is the 'best of all causes', in whose name one never goes far enough, so 'great men' are not amenable to meeting foes half-way, nor to any significant compromise: consensus bias Offered release from prison by the Botha administration in exchange for a ban on Black political violence, sublime Mandela refused to acquiesce: he was as superb as Zulu King Cetshwayo, who had defied British ultimatums thus starting the Zulu wars in Arthur Seyss-Inquart may have been an equally bumptious political terrorist: the lack of political authentication casts him in a very different light, however, because he was a right-wing extremist.

Readers shall individually decide what to make of these seemingly irreconcilable, conflicting cosmic priorities the human mind seems to bask in.
Euhemerus' theory IV century BCE wanted gods and their ilk as historical characters sages, scientists, military leaders Chinese sage and founder Confucius, too, has been the object of religious devotion ever since. In contemporary Japan, founders of jumbo multinationals also attract ed god-like reverence as sort of kami: only divine status could explain their worldly achievements. Ninomiya Sontoku the Japanese agriculturalist, and Maresuke Nogi the Japanese military chief, are also especially revered as kami. The lore has it that Confucius, like Jesus and suchlike figures, was of noble descent as the son of a reputed warrior, and that supernatural wonders, dragons and spirits greeted his birth.
He, however, was the son of a concubine, thus regarded as illegitimate by his father's descendants. Ziusudra If a great king may be come a god, so a god like Osiris -or Ogun- can be the first king of either Egypt or Ife. Events plot the same trajectory: a war possibly fought at Troy -according to archaeological evidence- could be euhemerized into a grand narrative of a cosmic clash fought by human demi-gods -such as enemies Aeneas and Achilles — supported by divine counterparts for example Poseidon, Hera, Hermes and Athena on the Greek side; Aphrodite, Leto, Artemis and Apollo on the Trojan side.
The same can be said about the Mahabharata, the mythical war on Indian soil that saw various gods appear on the scene Ganga, Shiva Even WWII fought in contemporary times sees forces of light battling forces of darkness. King came to be associated with supreme integrity, righteous indignation and just causes. Another Kennedy, did not exactly shine in matters of integrity, whether personal or in foreign policy: he's nevertheless hailed as providential man of a golden age by millions eager to whitewash 'the great man'. He told it so well that we forgave him almost everything.
In common parlance, Hitler -though not Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao or any other such figure- came to be associated with absolute evil. People diverge to avoid being misidentified or communicating undesired identities. Berger , emphasis added. Localized versions also exist, such as various African dictators Amin, Mobutu, Bokassa The image of Filipino dictator Marcos and his clan was usually associated with that of aswang, a terrible demon of Filipino folklore. Former Peruvian President Fujimori also came to embody unrighteousness in the local psyche. Priyadarshana concludes how such 'demonic possessions' are simply the reflection of societal pressures and oppression that afflict women in rural Sri Lanka.
What happen in backward rural Buddhist Sri Lanka also happens nearly verbatim in modernizing Muslim Malaysia, a wealthy country on a steadfast route to modernity. Only details vary in the reason why people may want the horde to pay them attention:. The sanitized environments maintained by multinational corporations in Malaysian "free trade zones"' are not immune to sudden spirit attacks on young female workers.
Ordinarily quiescent, Malay factory women who are seized by vengeful spirits explode into demonic screaming and rage on the shop floor. Management responses to such unnerving episodes include isolating the possessed workers, pumping them with Valium, and sending them home. I believe that the most appropriate way to deal with spirit visitations in multinational factories is to consider them as part of a "complex negotiation of reality" Crapanzano by an emergent female industrial workforce However, it is Malay spirit beliefs that explain the transgressions whereby women more likely than men become possessed by spirits kena hantu.
Their spiritual frailty, polluting bodies, and erotic nature make them especially likely to transgress moral space, and therefore permeable by spirits. Thus, as factory workers, Malay women became alienated not only from the products of their labor but also experienced new forms of psychic alienation.

Western readers may scoff at the above as nonsense clueless 'savages' amuse themselves with. The Belle Epoque, however, featured hysteria as the favored middle-class illness that plagued repressed women, and jump-started a young Freud in his discovery of psychoanalysis and its sexual undertones:. Culture shapes the expression of traumatic stress.
The mind cannot help but make meaning out of what it knows, and the meaning we make of our lives changes how and what we remember. Van Der Kolk , The West itself, however, has its list of reified demons.

Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean has a vision of where he'd like to take the nation.

A felon in the dock grabs a sick bucket; a corrupt politician caught red handed discloses the indignities he suffered as a child; a bankster is daddy to three sweet children, one of whom happens to be sickly; a shady wheeler-dealer soils his Versace suit trousers as he shakes uncontrollably in fear of impeding retribution: poor man One can almost hear in the background the sad Lonely Man theme from. Baron-Cohen Feldman Solomon Emotions And Responsibility. He cites Sartre.

In a variant, Semele abandons baby Dionysus in a basket floating atop the sea. Dolphins rescue him, and he's washed ashore at Vrasies today's Leonidio. Princess Ino -just as an Egyptian princess had raised Moses- raises him, and he plants a fig tree at the entrance of his cave, just like Moses is associated with another tree: the burning bush.
To this day, a fig tree can be seen at a cave's entrance, which is equated with Dionysus' mythical tree and dwelling place. Ino daughter of King Thebes, in Roman myth as Mater Matuta, Dawn was associated in this variant with her son Palaemon the Greek equivalent of Baal-Ammon , a sea demi-god who rescued seafarers in distress astride a dolphin. With or without ritual dismemberment, many dynasties plotted the same course towards divine status, notably Hellenistic Kings -such as the Seuleucids and the Ptolemies — who succeeded Alexander.
For a while -especially as Alexander's son was still alive-, they played the role of faithful administrators running their provinces in the name of the King of Kings, or the lineage of Alexander deified. The Christian Gospels also plot a similar trajectory as they progress a possible order is Mark, Matthew, Luke, John , whereby Jesus becomes more divine as time passes, culminating with John and his hyperbolic praise of Jesus' divinity. In some versions of the myth, Dionysus was said to have been contemporary of Lycurgus and Perseus; or to have introduced vineyards in India.
The foster-mother of Romulus and Remus Acca The Portuguese docking in Sri Lanka related in that what locals referred to as the worshiped idol Budhu or any other spelling that was in turn used was no other than St. Thomas Apostle in the first decades of the common era, who had also converted heathens in Southern India. Heroes and saviors -whether real or imaginary- co-exist in a metahistorical mist that transcends chronological time: duration wins over linear time.
A Chinese tradition suggested that Lao-Tzu, the legendary and supernatural founder of Taoism, migrated to India as he disappeared from China astride a water buffalo. Venerable Wuling establishes on open superposition between the systems of Confucianism and Buddhism, which she considers above all sterling educational systems. Zoroaster was thus the first to teach the doctrines of an individual judgment, Heaven and Hell, the future resurrection of the body, the general Last Judgment, and life everlasting for the reunited soul and body.
These doctrines were to become familiar articles of faith to much of mankind, through borrowings by Judaism, Christianity and Islam ; yet it is in Zoroastrianism itself that they have their fullest logical coherence, since Zoroaster insisted both on the goodness of the material creation, and hence of the physical body, and on the unwavering impartiality of divine justice.
According to him, salvation for the individual depended on the sum of his thoughts, words and deeds, and there could be no intervention, whether compassionate or capricious, by any divine Being to alter this.
