The Great Chain of Being

Defining and changing the power of words with motions and light. 
Using principals and degrees in hierarchy. 
Ranking their values within the clouds...

In the garden, God says,
 
"Don't eat the apple."
 
Jesus, at the transfiguration said,
 
"Don't tell anybody!"

B)

 

Don't tell anybody? :LOL:

Of course, the first thing one does is go out and tell the story.

To tell the whole overwhelming tale.

Like a delirious child, blurting out the immensity and spectacle of the thing.

The memory has its limits.
It's filled with perplexities of doubt, expanding with answers ever outward into sublime wonder and admiration.

All things move according to their weight.
Different poles of spiritual gravity generating instincts like fire to the moon.

To all who have followed and participated on these threads about Dante's Divine Comedy....

 

Dante's Divine Internet

 

Dante - Orientating the Stars...

 

This is the third and final thread on the Divine Comedy...Paradisio is the theme! When studying Dante's work it's best to slow it down because it does cause reflection upon an individuals inner self. This has been stated before but it bears repeating.

Early on, while going through the Inferno, I noticed a similarity between Dante's work and 'The Prince' by Machiavelli...it's almost as if they were written by the same person. Strange to say, but, there it is...

These reflections and others will be explored in future threads as we continue with our presentation on Paradise...

That's interesting because Machiavelli seems to be more of an atheist in his approach. He seems bitter in his exile! Where as Dante learned to overcome his inner vices and practice the art of virtue.  I'm not saying he was perfect, but, at least Dante offers a way to overcome the spiritual destruction inherent when practicing the arts of war for personal gain.

Machiavelli may have been too temporal in his approach...but, his examples in the behavior of principalities is notable because they sort of remind one of the major demons in the inferno. At least as far as vice is concerned. The principalities of vice and all their friends....

 

Entities under themselves but controlled in a hierarchy of hell...and everything it contains. As a whole!

 

Plus, there is the price of virtue...paradise is not easy!

This reminds me of Dionysus and Xanthias in “The Frogs” a comedy by the ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes. So....which poet gets resurrected!
