What Is the Spiritual Fossil Record?

Posted 04-24-2022 at 11:09 AM by MysticPhD


I am sorry, I just assumed by now that most people know what I am referring to when I use the term spiritual fossil record. It is the accumulated literature of religions, legends, myths, and speculations about God and Reality from the earliest beginnings. (I see them as the "fossilized cognitive bones" of spiritual inspirations received).

There are amazing parallels in what I see as the dominant spiritual template in the inspirations about God. (I obviously attribute the inspiration to the consciousness I encountered). One of us saving us by overcoming the many evils of our human nature, such as Theseus slaying the Minotaur born of Mino's wife's lust, with the maze representing our human ignorance, or Mithras slaying the Bull, etc.

The Avatar meme is quite prolific and the Jesus narrative presents the most sophisticated version of overcoming our animal nature, IMO. Reconciling the spiritual fossil record with the physical fossil record highlights the central problem of spiritual versus carnal interpretation of holy books. They are NOT intended for worldly or carnal-minded interpretation. They apply to our spiritual destiny, NOT our physical one.
