    Dao Bum
  1. I have been tested by the Church of England Church Army seminary (and you don't get more down to earth than that) under conditions of complete scientific hermeticism for this gift - after speaking, the text was on a covered board I didn't know was there, nor did I know the test was scheduled or the tester. The meditation is needed to clear all of you out of the way, to let that Spirit talk through you. In my case, it was plain English, but I had the feeling it was working in Aramaic through me. Strange feeling, moderated by gladness to be of service. Satori is effectively identical. Any Christians following this way, study Samuel.
  2. Rahere presents

    Rahere is a Eurocrat administrator in his 50s. An unaffiliated Christian Taoist (or Daoist Christian), he's been an instigator of social change on a pan-national scale which has written pages of modern history. Rahere's interest here is to develop his knowledge of early alchemical practice as a sub-text to the Quadrivium/Theological academic norm of the period 600-1560, its origins in the Jewish and Arabic world to 1250, and the transmutation into scientific process between 1560 and 1700. He is allergic to the Romantic inventions of the 19th century on the grounds that they were intended to minimise the less accessible parts of older history by redefining them in the new scientific context. He does not entirely abandon the standards of academic proof through documentation, on the other hand, he does accept independantly corroboative evidence as an alternative to documentation and refutes the thesis that authority is superior to original documentation - all authorities started from source data sometime, it's a subset of the apostolic descent thesis. Rahere's current studies associate certain modern Vatican claims with the possibility they may have taken physical control over a fundamental item of Jewish heritage.
