The most common `saying` in the English language is often interpreted religiously insofar as it relates to the shepherding of a flock of sheep, which is the term used by many for a religious congregation of pastored individuals. The word `pastor` comes from pastoral, which is usually used to indicate an idyllic countryside scene in English nature:
`Red sky at night,
Wherever the English language is spoken by its former colonial settlers throughout what used to be the British Empire and what came to be called the British Commonwealth of States, Queen Elizabeth II of England oversaw in its development as an economic union of independent and semi-independent nations and protectorates after her coronation in 1953. Queen Elizabeth II, as head of the Church of England, represents pastoral Britain, and the pastored, which are the parishioners and churchgoers. Elizabeth is both directly and indirectly responsible for her peoples` pastoring. The pastoral vision of the shepherds at sunset is a delight because their work for the day is completed. The complementary verse, which warns the pastors, is tacitly understood by most church members to be about the vicissitudes of English weather, but it is actually about the pastoring of a congregation that needs guidance:
`Red sky in the morning,
The admirability of a sunrise is unquestioned and, while the British Empire was one upon which `the sun never set`, partly because of the inventive ingenuity of the individuals that comprised its longevity and extent, in depth psychology the sun is a symbol of the ego of the individual that rises from the depths of unconscious sleep as if from an energy bath each day to continue strongly in the path of development. According to the depth psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) the unconscious of the human species contains archetypes, which are the developmental engine of human nature. Appearing as images in art, dreams and imaginations, archetypes function as the impulse engines of the human mind in its journey to the stars and planets outside of our solar system by means of technological achievement and advancement based on the archetypal material that emerges from our unconscious selves as imagery that inspires our progress.
The simplest observed Jungian archetype is the wheel, which is regularly occurs in dreams and imagination, because it represents the rudiments of travel. However, there are much more elaborate and complex archetypes; one of which is the ourobouros serpent. Friedrich Kekulé dreamed of it one night in 1865 and the next day was inspired to construct a working model of the benzene molecule, which is a strong component of the gasoline used in automobiles and again relates to the basic human concern with travel on Earth and elsewhere:
`… he had discovered the ring shape of the benzene molecule after having a reverie or day-dream of a snake seizing its own tail (this is a common symbol in many ancient cultures known as the Ouroboros … `1
The archetype of the sun is a symbol of the rise of the ego from the unconscious depths of the psyche with the information it needs to proceed each day on its journey of self-development, which is collectively progressive insofar as each new technical achievement of the species pushed humanity further to the stars. According to God Eve shall crush the head of the serpent with her heel as she leaves Earth (Gen: 3. 15) and `woman`s seed` shall have a `new heaven and Earth` while the `serpent`s seed` receives perdition, that is, eternal unendurable pain, for its `perpetual enmity` towards her. Usually this is interpreted as meaning that those who accept the teachings of Jesus are mankind and so are the seed of Eve and will have Redemption, but that presupposes men are `woman`s seed`.
Jesus was born uncontaminated by male semen as the first of `woman`s seed`, which means that men are the `serpent`s seed` unless they have Redemption from accepting Jesus` teachings. Normatively, men are presumed to be the only seed available to women and so it`s their seed which will have the promised `new heaven and Earth`. However, women have a penis of their own as `futanarian` and so `woman`s seed` is the human species because women have both penis and womb in socio-economic independence from the male if it doesn`t accept her. Although there`s no barrier to a man being acceptable to God, men can`t reproduce without women, but women can reproduce without men, which identifies them as the `woman`s seed` in the Bible and the human species de facto.
In ancient Greek civilization women`s wombs were enslaved to further pederasty and war, which suggests that men are women`s virus or parasite rather than human. God warned them at Sodom and Gomorrah when he destroyed the cities of the plains for homosexuality (Gen: 16, 19), and the `blood plague` of Revelation corresponds to the HIV/AIDS `killer disease` of the late 20th century`s `biological warfare` against the `host` wombs of women by her parasitical virus and constitutes a further explanation of men by God that they should convert from pederasty and the enslavement of women`s wombs to produce men as her devouring parasite in its `perpetual enmity` of wars against art, culture and civilization as it continually emerges from the fecundity of the womb of humanity:
`Men cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores but refused to repent of what they had done.` (Rev: 16. 11)
In the ancient Greek myth of the Kore, Demeter and Persephone are mother and daughter goddesses. The rule was that anyone who ate or drank in the underworld was doomed to spend eternity there. Persephone was kidnapped by Hades, god of the underworld, and ate pomegranate there. In his poem Wedding Morn (1913) D. H. Lawrence alludes to the compromise wherein Persephone spent six months of each year in the underworld during the late autumn, winter and early spring:
`The morning broke like a pomegranate,
In a shining crack of red.2
Persephone`s emergence to be with her mother, goddess of the harvest, in late spring, is the dawning of her sojourning with her mother once more. In Greek tradition, Persephone`s mourning of her daughter`s imprisonment in Hades is given as the reason for winter and the long wait for the growing season. In terms of Jungian psychology, the sun of ego-consciousness lies dormant in the darkness of the unconscious until the archetype of the mother-daughter Kore awakens. The god Hades represents the male that is perceived as necessary to the continuation of life, whereas the woman with her own penis as `futanarian` doesn`t need him and so is a prisoner. The concept of death refers to the ignorance that the male parasite keeps the human species in so that its enslavement can continue.
The Persephone-Demeter Kore relationship represents the wisdom of women who are aware of their status as a captive species in the full knowledge that they are made ephemeral by men who don`t want them to be old so that they can pass on what they have learned to their daughters. In Christianity Jesus` promise of immortality to those who accept his teachings of Redemption reflects this. If `woman`s seed` knows her predicament as an independent self-reproducing and developing human species she can escape from her captor, but if she`s kept in blind ignorance and ephemerality, that is, short-lived and subject to ageing, she`ll remain a slave of pederasty and war`s devouring parasitism.
One of the more prominent publishers of newsagents` `top shelf` magazines in the UK during the 1990s was Red Sky, which borrowed its name from the wise advice to the shepherd, `Red sky in the morning, shepherd`s warning.` The warning is that care for the flock of the congregation and the pasturing of the parishioners can result in loss of the sheep through admiration of God`s handiwork. Although `Red Sky at night, shepherd`s delight,` is more in keeping with the magazines published by Red Sky, which include the adult pornography of Risqué and Desire, the view that `soft core porn` is anathema to developmental functioning is a lie.
Admiration for the naked human form is basic to human activity but, in pastoring terms, the flock can be lost in admiration. Because they`re not admiring the human species in fullness, which requires `woman`s seed`, that is, the penis of the `futanarian` woman, for its complete picture to be revealed. If the full depiction of humanity lacks the penis of the woman, Redemption for her parasite remains an impossibility, because the incomplete picture of the human species is pornographic because it`s one of enslavement to the devouring parasite of pederasty and war, which is why many church leaders are right in describing pornography as evil. But the penis of the woman has to become visible on the world`s stage in equality and liberation, or men will incur God`s perdition as the attempted enslavers of the human species.
What has been termed `pornography` is actually educational and informative material, but it doesn`t inform and educate sufficiently to be happily describable as such. Humans have been taught their species is dependent on the male penis, whereas it`s an illusion that women depend on men`s seed, and Jesus` birth from the Virgin Mary simply denies it. In physical terms, humans eat, drink and copulate, but the taboo against depictions of sexual intercourse only reflects the lie that women don`t have a self-reproductive faculty, so that men`s exclusive role as her `seed` is maintained. Moreover, God`s dooming of the `serpent`s seed` to perdition is because men have hijacked the human species for what they call `pornography`, which is actually a metaphor for the furthering of pederasty and war by presenting the human species as food to be devoured by its sexclusive breeders:
`Mystery, Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of the abominations of the Earth.` (Rev: 17. 5)
Babylon is a woman in the Bible but she`s archetypal insofar as she represents the woman who is enslaved to produce men in pederasty for war and its contagions, such as HIV/AIDS` biological weapon against her host wombs. The emergence of the `futanarian` woman with a penis of her own, as that aspect of woman as a socio-economic species independent of its devouring male parasite, is essential if mankind is to have Redemption from its sin of enslaving her in order to devour the humans.
