Dancing around Ahura Mazda

Dear Parviz

I actually don't go back and forth on the issue of Ahura Mazda.
I rather go around the issue (dance around the issue) since it is not yet fully developed (by anybody) and since I also believe this is the best way to understand the concept and make it ours, emotionally and credibly.
So I believe that "the going-around" and the constant debate on the issue of Ahura Mazda is the most fruitful way to understand the concept, identify with it, live it and breathe it. Reducing such an important concept to dogma is almost like killing it.
What is clear is that Ahura Mazda has two components: One describing Existence or the Universe as a whole, the other pointing out and giving value to that which has substance in this universe (which to us as Mazdayasni is that which we consider "mind"). In classic philosophy this would be the combination of Being and Becoming, stability and movement, cosmos and chaos, eternity and change etc. Hegel would indeed have loved this combination, this dialectical relationship WITHIN the divinity. This is what Hegel himself referred to as "Spirit".
It is clear that what Zarathushtra was aiming at was an all-encompassing concept of divinity and sacredness so that he could radically remove or make all other separate divinities redundant.
I believe you would agree with me on the issue, right?

Dear Alex,

I would like to hear once and for all your final view of Ahoora Mazda.
You seem to go back and forth on this and please give me your final take.

Deleuze actually wrote two books on Spinoza, they are both brilliant!!!
Deleuze is the modern philosopher who understood and respected Spinoza the most.
And Spinoza is the best way for westerners to understand Zarathushtra.
Even though I must admit that there is a lot of Zarathushtra in Hegel and Nietzsche too.
Especially the concept of Ahura Mazda would have thrilled Hegel, had he known about it.

…What are scientists Children of the knowledge Primal seed of cosmical machine Schemes and terms from sky laboratories Investigation‘s brought by Creator‘s wit
Physical aspect and lace of metaphysic
Supreme touch urges to create
Science wit knows sense of moving
But Divine can’t be proved by theme

… ARMY OF LOVERS’ CLONES are as French résistance. French communist Michael romances with positive lad from positive French Gestapo. Local stripper Sarah is busy worker. Female Polizei is in jealousy. Unhonest Owner of Milk Factory is only one negative person. There is no blood and horrors in the story that is the result of mobilistic philosophy. Do you want Whole Clip script, Alex? And what about the Romanovs and The communists who live in complete peace or BWO, VACCUUM and ARMY OF LOVERS members as heroes of fancy tales?

PS there may be some silliness in my first commentary. I was shy that time. It’s my explanation…
