incurable illness VS spiritual authority

In the beginning, a spiritual authority is at the root of all religious traditions. There is an author at the origin of all teachings and all rituals.

And there is much in common throughout the many variations of religious tradition. One of the things in common is the recognition that some teachers are more or less able than others. Some people that might be called prophets may yet be imprecise in their understanding. The people that may be called wise by the masses may actually be fools.

So, popularity is not a measure of accuracy. Popular ideas have included the idea that the earth is flat, or that the planets rotate around the earth in perfect circles rather than in elliptical orbits around the sun, or that real estate prices always rise, or that there is such a thing as an incurable illness, such as scurvy. Despite the popularity of these theories, they may be recognized by you as contrary to obvious evidence, as in false, or at least questionable, as in there could be other valid ways to communicate the underlying reality that could be more precise and practically useful.

For instance, when there is a particular range of a certain vitamin present in an organism, certain symptoms predictably arise and a label in language that can be given to the arising of certain symptoms is scurvy. Scurvy is not an objective physiological reality, but just a linguistic concept or categorization.

Even the idea of an incurable illness is itself the symptom of a certain level of understanding about physiological development and nutrition. People who believe in the existence of incurable illness are likely to use that term and to believe that someone diagnosed and labeled as having an incurable illness actually has an illness that is in fact incurable. So, the foolish could believe that someone diagnosed as having scurvy has something that is incurable, rather than correctly interpreting the signals from the organism that there would be value in providing the nourishment of a certain vitamin.

Is autism curable? Well, I’m not concerned about arguing over the word “curable.” However, I do know 1 person, Aajonus Vanderplanitz, who was diagnosed with autism (among many other things) and completely recovered. He reports many cases, as do various physicians and nutritionists, such as the author of the book “Body Ecology.”

A person with a certain amount of a particular vitamin does not have an incurable scurvy. They simply have a particular amount of various vitamins, which can be very easy to change.

In other words, the application of the label “incurable illness” is a curse. There is no such thing as having scurvy physiologically. Scurvy exists only in language, not in physiology. Different levels of vitamins exist physiologically. That is why no one has ever found a scurvy, because there is no such thing. One cannot physically find a darkness or a silence or a blindness or a scurvy because they are not physical, but only linguistic.

All incurable illnesses are diagnostic labels given from a particular linguistic model as a curse. We could think of those diagnostic labels as acts of psychological warfare, as distinct from simply measuring the presence of various nutrients and categorizing the developmental maturity and functionality of various organs and physiological systems.

So, as with diagnostic labels like incurable illness and scurvy, people can learn traditions and repeat phrases they learned from someone else, but is there any authority at all in the words themselves? Is there authority in the words, or is the only authority in the spirit or heart of the one using the words?

Parents, think about when your children call out to you. Do you only listen to the words they say, or do you listen to the way they say them? Do you listen to the spirit of the message?

Even before an infant can use any words at all, we can hear their spirit in their voice. We can identify crying as distinct from laughter. We can identify different kinds of crying- from distress to disappointment.

Many teachers can even claim that their own teaching is the only correct teaching, and that only certain words in particular are the correct ones. They may say that some words are more sacred than other words. They may be fanatically focused on words. They may have no focus whatsoever on spirit. In the extreme, many teachers can claim that their teachings are so obviously superior to all other teachings, that the other teachings must be ridiculed or even exterminated so as to keep their own teachings safe from the apparently immense threat of a teaching that is allegedly vastly inferior.

Some of those teachers call themselves spiritual teachers. Some call themselves political leaders.

They divide people against each other based on words. They invest their time in arguing and struggling and invading and warring. It can be very dangerous to follow such teachers.

Those who are called wise may be revealed as fools. Those who are called fools may be revealed as wise.
