THE DEPTH OF THE INDEPENDENT MIND
(11 June 2008 by Carl A. Patton)
Again I reflected on a great thinker who had a mind. Einstein reflecting on his friend and colleague, and confidant Frederich Alder and his mood to conform. Thus one of our greatest thinkers noted:
First it is Adler who had great respect for Einstein’s “most independent” mind. As a physicist they agreed on most things. But what he saw most striking was the non-conformist streak in Einstein that reflected an inner security but not of arrogance.
Meanwhile Einstein who went deep in the mind wished for Alder to focus more on science and not politics? For the record at one time Einstein leaned to the Left and also thought he found genius in political, historical and economic questions laced with Socialism. But back to Alder and his loyalty to a party of political persuasion. This to Einstein meant surrendering some independence of thought. This confrontation and acceptance of conformity confounded and almost confused Einstein. Why?
I would imagine, I would think
those serious responsible thinkers
looked not at the causal but
were/are quite formal in the
pursuit of knowledge.
However they are constantly confronted
with the trivial species who have
taken the microwave to a new level
and believe that they also can come
to information and knowledge by
some artificial means.
“There was once a lost and ignorant man who posed a question to one of the thinkers we have here described. However when the thinkers sought to answer the question with a discourse of prerequisite information as he knew that the dumb and ignorant man knew very little about what he inquired about he was told the following. ‘I didn’t ask you all that, just answer the question’. Many inquiries regarding the Bible these lost souls often say just give me one scripture that says I am not supposed to do that. But in the secular realm of information and knowledge they extract an even more tragic response to truth. They don’t know that they really don’t know however they want a microwave answer and it does not exist. Nor would they accept anything as their comprehension is challenged and they resent any efforts toward concentration.”
Meanwhile those gifted to think
in the realm of the Spiritual Scientist
knowing God is the center of Truth
even give credit and note the contributions
of some great thinkers that did not
know that they knew God.
Follow us deeper as we explore
things that only a few righteous
are now able to see. Did God
want man dependent on other men
for life, information and knowledge?
Man can render knowledge as we
write and speak. But God is the
inspiration for all things good. Thus
are all things good that explore
things seldom seen heard are
Before black-listing, banning,
censoring and trashing a message
should one check the credentials
of the writer? How can the righteous
be checked? How do we know the
good from the bad?
Meanwhile the mind casting its
lots that were willed by God
toward independence resisted
any and all efforts to have him
restricted because of an existing
covenant are rule.
God’s rules become all that the
righteous who really delve into
the mind are exclusively bound
by. Thus this wayward non-conforming
mind then has the freedom to exist
and think freely.
His work could not be done in
a box nor with placing his intellect
on hold for a season are for mere
pennies as God holds all the gold.
Never would the comics the court
jesters the story-tellers the people
that just went with the flow know
of certain things without the elusive
No one seemed to listen as the
silent truth went forth upon
the land. However more listened
than those that cried.
However the Creator who called
down this mind heard everything.
He listened as He had already heard
the news but many people threw
rocks of paper and thought Good
News was sad and bad news.
