To Bridge the Great Divide: A Balancing Act the Copernican Way, A Futuristic Philosophy
by Johan Maritz
This is a futuristic, demystifying, and liberating philosophy that redefines some current values and perceptions in order to remove the mental shackles that burden human life. For this we need to bridge the religious and post-religious situations by differentiating between the cosmic design and metaphysics, the latter all of which are human constructs. These foremost need linguistic clarity.
As newly explained, we are now also doing away with intuition, innate ideas, the supernatural, etc., in their old forms by applying Freuds and Darwins contributions to humanity: The senses are the creators of all subjective meaning that describes only fleeting situations. Truth that we always have liked to put on the pedestal of morality is one of those ambivalent flirts. In the past intuition, innate ideas, etc., have been seen as things spiritual, but they are in fact only experience laid down in the human subconscious. Spirituality, divinity, holiness, etc., are religious terminology, but a moral revival is impossible on these mystical premises! This book is a recipe for untying the knot not by the sword, but by utilizing the human mind as a situation.About the Author
