mud and added awareness to the lifeless human doll. Mankind also felt the wrath of Zeus who sent Pandora and her
proverbial box of miseries. The box was opened and all the suffering and diseases came out and were spread between all
humans forever; in the last moment she saved hope as the only attribute inside the box.
Reason for punishment: Zeus had taken away from humans the fire, which Prometheus as ‘light bearer’ (stands for
sophistication), once he had taken over the power and Prometheus secretly returned the fire to them. The Judean God
was irate as well to detect that humans trying to apply sophistication against his expressed rule. He expelled them from
the Paradise burdening them with hardship and misery, similar like the contents of the box of Pandora. Gods of other
cultures showed similar reactions for the same deed. Today’s religious culture has shifted this fact in the background, and
if altogether, blames Satanas for the wide spread of misery, and has declared the fight against misery in all the world as
central aim of religious devotion.
There are some opinionated views that regard Jesus and Prometheus as parallel prophets to save human kind. True is that
the suffering and personal sacrifice is equal; both acted against the will of God’s laws but not against God himself. Jesus
was executed consequently by God’s representatives on Earth, the Judean priests. This fact is still a thorn for Christian
Theology and has, more than anything, contributed to the specific animosity between them and Judaism. Both Gods, the
Hebrew and the Greek, are of paternalistic male characteristic, jealous and intolerant, based on Ethos. Both, Jesus and
Prometheus were by principle moralists, defenders of matter and caring to reduce misery, the unwanted gift of their gods.
whereas Judaism by principle follows ethical rules.
Close with Christian Theology and Prometheus is Luzifer, who originally was “light bearer”, (the root of term ‘Lucifer’
= ‘makes light’) and “star of the morning”, probably regarded by some as God’s Son (Venus) and Jesus called himself
“bright morning star” leaning on the cogname for Luzifer. Today he is known to be Satanas. Following Judean mythology
he must have been a leadership figure during the time the Jewish people were in captivity around 600 B.C. in Babylon
under Nebuchadnezzar. Luzifer was Jew or Babylonian, may be Nebuchadnezzar himself. He was referred to as Archangel
and light bearer and star of the morning. It looks likely that he fraternised with local Babylonians to ease the fate of the
Jewish people. This was not agreeable with dogmatic-ethical priests and it came to a power struggle between both groups,
which the priests won, but they could not kill him, probably he was to popular or in a too powerful position, and therefore
declared him in hindsight as Satanas. During the time of early Christianity this seems to have been reversed again, at
about 400 A.D. there was even a Bishop called Luzifer, but this changed
again in Middle Age and had to do with changing view and culture of the
Church. John Milton let him say:”Better rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.”
The figure of Luzifer is fascinating. Several times he had to suffer in Hell,
at other times he was highly appreciated. The church went in its policy
during the last 2 -3000 years very much a zigzag line, because there were
elements of Ethos and Moral contradicting each other. Luzifer is not only
a child of the Ethos ruled Aeon, he is involved with the Judean dogma of
priorities. Ethos, the dogma, has clearly priority also if the own people in
slavery face serious human misery and suffering, similarly like Prometheus
who tried to help humankind by stealing the fire for them.
Prometheus’ (an probably Luzifer’s) origins are in a moralistic ruled world
of matter and he was fascinated by the drive and strength of the new
upcoming dynamic ethical style. After having changed the fronts he
became disappointed with the ‘Jacobinian Renewal’, (French revolution
1789) and turned back, where he came from, to Moral and Earth. He was
punished for treason with the chance to be pardoned.
Jesus has been born into an ethical ruled society with unbend-able laws
and without denying to the outside God’s superiority he followed the
human instinct to lead the people back, where they are rooted, and this
is the world of matter and moral. Therefore he had to be executed as self
declared God’s Son, all Gods destroyed their children since ever when the
competing Aeons are involved. God would act as Zeus has done.
Luzifer has been born (or became part of it) in a privileged position of
an ethically ruled tribe in an ethical Aeon, which suffered immensely in
captivity. He looked into the next Aeon, into the future and this again
inspired foresight, told him one day Moral will matter higher than Ethos,
when the suffering of the own people seemed to be endless and some
soothing steps should be taken, the ethically acting priests would not
For the moralist is for instance social deprivation one
of the bleakest facts and all endeavours are directed
to avoid inequality.
The ethical view is if social priorities are abused it is
to the detriment of life. Degeneration is deep down
socially rooted. The moralist’s view is there are
reasons for social deficiencies and help is even more
