Etymology & Derivation of AssAssins

About: assassins - wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I read about this some years ago.  The story goes that disaffected youth, unable to get laid or poor or whatever were show a vision of paradise & the 72 virgins via drugs & brainwashing & then used as tools of terror & assassination. The etymology of the word derives from Syrian region.

Consciousness is different from physical things. It is like spiritual light. It is a fundamental category of each elementary particle. As such it is not like weight or money that has a predetermined effect tzu increase or decrease.

".... The question of illative force is controversial in some minds.  In our book every Ultimate Particle has Consciousness, a Category concomitant with others such as Unity, Extension, Persistence, Motion i.e. each UP has an Ego, whose function is JUDGEMENT, which is expresses as a "statement" or "equation" properly quantified & qualified.  Note that not the statement but its MEANING is what FORCES you to assent, i.e., if you are a reasonable person.  Speech & Reasoning are equivalent: See what I mean when I say "Look Jane see Dick" - two levels.

Pristine Realities evolve to Symbols; Logic, Language, Logos emanates from the Father, not from Nothing except as it seems, of Tertullian pee;thus "The Heart girt with a Serpent" has parallels in Ontogeny & Phylogeny.  If you want to dunk your doughnut, go ahead & dunk it! "It is a lie, this folly against self" - Awareness, Attention is the function of the Ego;  Brightness, Brilliance, Luminosity which is measured by Photons increase with Development.
(2642) CONSCIOUSNESS is awareness of the part which self takes in production of a judgment either as a cause or effect = cause when I act on another, effect when I act on myself, when my hand touches my head, e.g., "I am an effect". Believe a cause exists without an effect or vice versa if you like to be mystifyied or misdirected.  The categories of Reality are, number, space, motion, time & judgment;  if it be a thing it must have unity, it must be one, or it does not exist.  Also it must have extension, speed, persistence & consciousness;  these cats [categories] or essentials are independent but concomitant; the thing is its component essentials;  there is no "ding an sich".  From here we can go to the subject of "Electricity" & what happens to make it positive or negative, the yang & yin! .."

So for the racism/cop killings becoming aware of it only makes more of them, eh?
... yep, pretty much.  It's like a corollary to the law of attraction.   It is an effect on the whole being, (or society),  so don't look for it necessarily affecting you personally ... just because you are aware that peope are killing cops, won't make you go kill one yourself ... but running your mouth on a social media might increase somebody's motivation to go out and do it. 

Look there is not really anything new here in this idea ... it shouldn't be controversial, it is the same train of thought that publicists use all the time, giving us memes like  "there is no such thing as bad press".   The thing is this is a real effect and if Radiacl Muslims become aware that is what is happening here, they might just start questioning their motives ... which become opposite to their stated purposes.

We can see the same effect happening even here in our dialogue at fastblogit.  The more aware we have become of the RWG, the more it is played ... the more we ignore it, the less it happens.   Like i said, awareness is a peculair thing and can get quite switched around.

The question in my mind is what types of phenomena are subject to this effect ... and which are not?
Yep, well you can't have terrorism in a dark closet. OTOH I hesitate to generalize it into anything like your premise.

... then too there are those who will make up & spin any story they need about what consciousness is forgetting that those of us who have it know what it is & all their words are skew-wise (II,32).

" ... Dai yot yao hih #6 ZUNG. Kon peen P.1716 of TAI SHU for comment general, technical & specific to each & every situation! Just as forces which bring death to man do not have this for their sole aim, but their real function is to give capacity to develop the Consciousness Soul, so the Forces of Evil are not designed to promote evil but rather to help Man to develop the power to overcome evil, viz - develop the Consciousness Soul

seems very appropriate for these days ... the 9.0 earthquake & tsunami, the subsequent nuclear failures in Fukushima, the snow falling on devastated parts of Japan, the wars in the Middle East & in particular Syria,Iraq  .. terror spreading to Paris.

thing is, when it comes to consciousness ... to awareness ... things can get a bit turned around.   To increase something one needs to become more aware of it ... to decrease, one needs to ignore it. 

Apparently these fundamentalists have no such conception of how that works ...

The day after the attack, the remaining staff of Charlie Hebdo announced that publication would continue, with the next week's edition of the newspaper to be released on the usual schedule,[38] but with a greatly increased print run of 1,000,000 copies.[39]

... or, more likely, they don't give a shit what people think of Mohammad ... they just intend to increase violence about their so called "religion" .... for that is what they are doing.
Said already on Facebook:
Yeah - words don't mean anything - it's just an excuse to murder & terrorize in the name of some god. Somehow I think they are in a trance similar to the kamikazes of WW-II. Will they ever wake up? .  The bolded is not how I hold it.  So for the racism/cop killings becoming aware of it only makes more of them, eh?

... we don't need to think about this in a generalization ... we can use the specific example before us.   If the terrorists knew that by killing people, they would increase the circulation of the mocks of Muhammad, would they still have killed the people?   Who consciously does a thing like that?
Your rationalizations don't make sense to me.  Fear does.  Any story will do.
Look at this one:

EURABIA DEBATE ERUPTS

Maybe Amerabia next or maybe Amerexico .
