Continued from here. What does theology have to do with modernity? Everything, when most of humanity is under the jackbook of the fascist illuminati either Islamofascist or Judeo-ChristoCapitalofacist we all revert back to surreal impressions of the world. Things are too fast to think clearly about facts. We employ spiritual archetypes to comfort ourselves as to fate of our tribes. What we need now, is something that acknowledges the facts and the spirits. We need to talk openly face to face about all the stories that make our lives, appreciating that myth not history determines our fate and individuals. It’s a struggle, a holy struggle a “crusade” or a “jihad” to approach these topics as a mystic, and not in real life. To wage an all out assault on reality with surrealism. Those who live in dreams, and experience psychosis as the norm are leaders here. They are shamans, medicine women and men, and healers. Monks and nuns are there too to mop up the facts, and the priest and pastors steal these insights and oppress to make a living. Restoring the identity of a St. John of the Cross or a Saint Teresa of Ávila to the Western culture will do us so much good it’s not even funny, giving us a memory of the Western European-WASP Rumi.
Poet: Data, Climate Change, the West, and the Islamic World
Dr. William Kaya Erbil
I make money any way I can to finish a book of poetry on climate change, the West, and the Islamic World. Been working on this book for eight years. Features a raw and gritty personal story of mental illness. The book explores themes around religion, and tries to place a framework around the current War on Terror/global Islamic fundamentalist jihad. Relates technology and weapons of war to their basic scientific origin, digging deeper to find their mythological sources. Ending with a 500 year time travel journey to illuminate the public on the Islamic origin of Copernicus’s discovery, Arabic language semantics are explored to ask why the West gained a 500 year dominance. Back to 2017, faced with the existential dilemma of climate changed induced geopolitical apocalypse I will compare Islamic finance to Western capitalism and prove it to be superior as a framework for modern ecological economic. All these poems point back to the fight between Ishmael and Isaac. They both will realize that perhaps Ruth or Mary were the ones we should have written more about…
