Immortality in the Zoroastrian sense

Dear Iris

I would definitely say the second alternative. I don't believe in any conscious after-life and I don't see any reason why you would have to believe in one either after reading The Gathas. The importance of the after-life was an Egyptian rather than an Indo-European idea. Zoroastrians disposed their dead towards recycling (feeding the corpses to vultures) and did not build pyramids like the Egyptians. Zarathushtra's own approach towards any ideas of an after-life seems to have be an ethical obsession with the here and now instead of the future. That which to him was unknown remained unknown. Immortality here is therefore not immortality in any Judeo-Christian-Muslim sense but rather approaching the transcendental quality of The Divine as outside the limitations of time and space. What is eternally valid? That's the question which Zarathushtra was concerned with.

Are immortals refering to life after death or is it refering to the suspension of time from being in the present without identifying to the future or past? (As in we are immortal in the present.)

…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…
