Transcendence

Introduction

An introduction to what transcendence, the philosophical and spiritual part of E.A.R.T.H., is all about.

The meaning of life

We all live according to some sort of meaning, some interpretation of what life is about.  Here is my attempt to put mine into words.

The New Testament

As one of the most influential books in our culture, and as part of my general interest in religion, I read the New Testament.  Here are my thoughts.

God

My thoughts on the concept of God

Love

I wrote some musings about this force which is so deeply consequential in our society, and against my better judgement put it up here
Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful
Samuel Johnson

The Koran/Quran

anon
I read the Koran in 1997. It was a real trial to get through it. Mohammed was basically a small time warlord, and the only reason he ever gave for people following his version of the faith was that God said so. If you don't believe in God and you are looking for any other sort of wisdom in this book, I am afraid you will be dissappointed. High points include the part where he says to beat your wife if she is disobedient, or the bit where he says that God has revealed to him he can sleep with pretty much any women he desires, but no one else can.
