Hi Tech Christianity Versus Low Tech Christianity
I guess most of us are familiar with the subject of "Low Tech Christianity." Basically, this is the attempt of various religions to understand how Christians 2000 years ago perceived God, Christ, heaven, hell, demons, salvation, etc.

One must understand, that those who wrote the bible also thought the world was flat and the universe revolved around the Earth. Nobody's accusing the early prophets of being stupid or deceitful, just scientifically primitive(i.e."Low Tech").

The imagery of Christianity came out of another low tech civilization called the Middle Ages. The idea of heaven as a place where one floats around on a cloud and plays a harp or eats Philadelphia cream cheese seems absurd to me. Again, this is low tech visualizing coming from a very restricted view of the universe(Heaven above, Hell beneath, Earth in the center).

"Hi Tech Christianity" simply improves our visualization and understanding of Christian concepts. The universe becomes an enormous mind-boggling morass which one navigates in through a star ship rather than with angel wings.

An immortal body might be something that an android like Star Trek's Data might have. It might also be a "photonic body" like the doctor in Star Trek's Voyager.

It is likely that the memories of a life time are downloaded into a super computer using a special password(e.g. Jesus Christ)and "saved" for a very long time.

This isn't a subject that comes up very often on the internet. The search term "Hi-Tech Christianity" produced only one result and here it is:

The First Christian Immortals
On Star Trek, The android "Data" is an immortal and so is "Q" for that matter. The concept of immortality is in practically every man made myth and religion.

I intend to write down my mystical experiences with Christian immortals in the future. In meantime, checkout these various links on immortals and immortality.

Website Of The Week:"SRV"(Scientific Remote Viewing)
Remote viewing is probably a latent spiritual ability that we all have. It's interesting that one of the tools of mysticism (i.e. looking without using your eyes)is now being studied intensely with scientific interest.

The Website Is Run By A Group Called "The Farsight Institue".

The Memory Recovery Project
I love watching a TV show like Jeopardy because it demonstrates how sharp our memories can be. However, most of us have a tendency to selectively forget anything that disturbs us. Amnesia is very prevalent on this planet.

Unpleasant memories/dreams/visions can influence the quality of our life, but few ever do anything about it.

A major project of the Christ Brotherhood was the recovery of the memories of "dead" souls on 76 destroyed planets in this sector. It was like getting information from a wrecked computer hard drive

The rehabilitation of the 76 planets' technologies was due mainly to memory probes placed in life units on these planets, particularly, on Graceworld where "Rock and Roll" was discovered two hundred years ago.

Star Trek and Star Wars were two recalls of these activities on 20th century Earth.

There are also self-help groups and new age movements that stress memory recovery in their practices.

What do you think?

The Monitoring Of Lifetimes
Obviously, the closest thing to us is our own life. In a sea of darkness and forgetfulness, it's important that the details of our own human existence are preserved.

The monitoring of earthly lifetimes is the responsibility of powerful spirits who can remember more details of a life than any computer can.

You may come into this world with no memory(i.e.The slate has been made clean.), but you certainly won't leave in the same way.

The Living Christ: The Jesus Of Now Not 2000 Years Ago
There is little of Jesus and the Church of 2000 years ago that we don't know about. This was the great sandal epic in the Bible which was told millions and millions of times by just about every Christian anywhere.

However, the main emphasis of this blog was and is on the state of the original Church and Jesus over the last 1900 years leading to now(the 21st century).

There's no reason why any Christian in any age should be cut off from a Christian in an earlier age. We all have the "Mind Of Christ". We are all part of "The Vine" and the "Eternal Brotherhood of Christ."

"As it was then, is now and ever more shall be world without end."

There are other entries in this blog on this and similar topics. They can be found using my personal Google Search Engine:

Life is a journey of discovery and I hope I've shed some light on your individual path.

The Barron Version Of Christian Mysticism
In theological(crop?)circles, there are long-winded sermons on "mysticism" and "Christian Mysticism." However, I will not continue the verbose pontification on these matters in this blog.

There's some virtue making a homily short and to the point. Here it is:

My biblical basis for 20 and 21st century Christian Mysticism is from "Acts Of The Apostles."

Chapter 2... Quoted on the Day of Pentecost by Peter (Act.2:16-21):
"And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."

Visions of the future and the past have been very plentiful in sci/fi writers of the 20th century like Gene Rodenberry, George Lucas, Issac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, L. Ron Hubbard, Arthur Clarke, etc.

From the real experience with Jesus Christ and the medieval experience in later centuries, the early church has moved into a position as an "ADVANCED CIVILIZATION" which has been contacted by many of today's sci/fi writers.

The mystical experience of "Jesus and the Early Christian Church" in the 21st century can be achieved by anyone today. Read the second definition of mysticism:
Main Entry: mys?ti?cism
2 : the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience (as intuition or insight)

Hopefully, you can relate to some inner truth of your own.
Drop me a line expressing your own views.

Where Are The Leaders Of Today And Tomorrow?
Are there leaders in the world that set a good example for us? Lets look at two candidates:

Have you found out what "relativism" and "collegial" mean? These are some of the new Pope's favourite buzz words.

Hannah is a nine year old school girl who started the "Ladybug Foundation" four years ago for homeless people. She has no high academic education, just a good heart for helping people.

Spiritual But Not Religious
Many young people look at themselves as spiritual travellers outside the rituals and beliefs of mainstream religions.

I believe that a large minority of them seek spiritual knowledge from within rather than through dogma from a church. Are you one?

Spiritually could be looked at as "intuitive thought processes" connecting with realities beyond our physical senses.

Personal visions and revelations carry the soul to higher levels of understanding on spiritual matters.

"Ask and it will be given." "Knock and the door will be opened to you." A spiritual journey is very personal and it can be very rewarding.

Joseph Ratzinger Is A Good Choice For Pope
Yahhh!!! in the 14th century, however, this is the 21st century.

Pope Ratzinger seems to be everything that Catholic Liberals are fighting against. Perhaps, some good will come out of it, if most Catholics get sick of arch-conservatives calling the shots, perhaps, they could take matters into their own hands and engineer an internal reformation or an outright schism? What do you think? Drop me a line.

In the meantime, think on the bright side. Pope Joe is 78 years old. How long can he last?
Do you remember what happened to John Paul the first in 1978?
