human being's prophetism
Humanity is thought to be a swarm of
simpletons with flat thought almost without exception.
This is a mistake.
"Now listen to how the tale becomes pretty!" (Baldassar
Castiglione, "The Book of the Courtier").
Imagination, even when shabby, is not just a set of concepts
which run through the brain. Far more often than is realized, it
may be dedicated to providing a message to a human being, or a
human bunch, or the whole mankind, even on an unimportant
Any man common, or atheist, or materialistic, who has had a
pretty long life (from 45 to 100 years), even though he or she
never talks about it, has lived at least one baffling
experience, whether short or long, during which he or she might
have wondered whether he or she was or was not assisted by
something or someone invisibly active, by whom or which he or
she was protected and inspired.
Even the atheist who vehemently claims that no thinking Force
exists above himself or herself, and who argues that none of
baffling experiences in the world may be prophetic, because he
or she considers himself or herself as being his or her own god,
nor is this completely erroneous...
He or she is just different from a believer for the lack of
adequate concept that he or she is the image and likeness
(Genesis 1/26-27) of the mysterious Power
from Whom all, absolutely all, originates and just a small
portion of which he or she is.
"Insha'Allah" (if God wills it!), our Muslim
brothers say in complying with the Koranic verses 23
or 24 and 24 or 25 of the Soura 18 "The Cave" — The
numeration of a number of Koranic verses may be variable in
relation to time, issues, ulémas (theologians).
I do not think that "Insha'Allah" (if God wills it!) means that
nothing can take place without God's agreement.
I think that "Insha'Allah" means : Human being, whoever you are,
you have something to say or make only because you are a prophet.
Animals have no project or messages to achieve, their daily
routines, which are always foreseeable with few variations, are
defined at the very moment of their birth.
A human being thinks and makes decisions. He or she is the
registered seat of the unforeseeable. Whether the latter is
pitiful, or whether the latter is successful or unsuccessful, it
is no part of the fact that the thought from which it emanates is
Anybody, whether a believer or not, whatever kind of faith, hope,
philosophy, metaphysics, atheism or disregard he or she may have,
is or may be the decision maker of his or her own life or the
ideologue who puts forward some new collective way of life and
finally proves to be the prophet of himself or herself or the
prophet of the people who approve to him or her. The prophet
that the Creator asked to circulate and explain The
Revelation of Arès is just the prophet of a Word
he has been willing to teach — My initial
approval already was a prophetic deed itself. In other
words, prophets and prophetism cannot occur
without any will to be.
A thought, whatever it is, is a neverending back and forth, opens
the door to the below and the beyond the place where we are
nothing but the witnesses of ourselves. Nevertheless, a thinker,
whether he or she thinks much, or a little, or poorly, whether he
or she makes people shrug their shoulders in doubt or is
considered to be a genius, can make whatever runs through his or
her mind a prophetic thought, the reservoir of a design
prone to challenging his or her own life or the Universe's
life (12/4) and responding to items as well materialistic
as metempirical or as spiritual.
On musings about the past other than historical, that is other
than meaningless, or about clairvoyants' future, ideas about the
normal course of things, about space, about the infinite, or about
God, some spotlights glaring with intelligence (32/5)
sometimes happen to be put. It is then possible to hear
what the Scripture means in words like God created
man in His Image and Likeness (Genesis 1/26-27). For
decades I have met human beings whose insights have
When such thoughts are perceived by modern nature, they cannot be
closed in on their own forecastings only, their magnitude goes far
beyond the limits which thinkers themselves st rive to heed. So a
lot of thoughts are localized in Jonas' spiritual
lineage, prophet and thinker Jonas who himself
addressed the mystery of the soul with his lives
constantly at risk.
It is possible to detect signs of a prophetic calling,
which usually are oblivious, in any human being's life. Even
telling tales may be seen as prophetic, which often is
just telling artificial tales, the lier thinks he or she may talk
to give his or her life some value to fill a gap in it. A thieve
disclaims his or her theft because he or she sincerely believes
that the theft is better off in his or her hands than in the
stealed's hands, "She picked flowers, albeit it was
forbidden; quickly she tore off a rose which she had coveted since
morning and she ran off carrying it. And then she hid her theft in
her collar against her throat. between her two small breasts"
(Romain Rolland "Antoinette").
As mentioned above, prophetism cannot be reduced to the
prediction or transmission of a divine message; it always and
everywhere holds something opaque. For and by thinking it figures
out a calling to see what the scientific or legal proof cannot
see. Deep in every human being there is some exilic life, a
permanent attempt, whether poor or rich, at the phrasing of human
thought in front of the absolute without being closed in the
roundness of materialistic logicor philosophy. A metaphysical
escape is always achievable; in other words, it weak or strong
falls inside the scope of the prophetic spirit in its
sacred acception. Today that field is taken over by poets and
artists, but in reality it belongs in the whole mankind.
As he or she periodically needs to dispute the boundaries drawn
between science, logics, psychology, philosophy, esthetics and
theology, a human being whoever is a thinker whose genius is
usually scattered over the numerous directions which are the
endless mouthpieces of his or her innermost experiences which look
as if they lived for their own, but which do not live just like
that. Every human stays true to the controversial spirit of prophetism;
he or she deep down, continuously, in silence, denounces the
bewilderment of people's mind, which is no more aware of man's
attachment to Life (Rév d'Arès 25/3) or to the Father,
or to the Maker, or to God, who abandons herself or himself to the
smoothing of the quantitative, which counts the marbles instead of
let them jangle each other, and which categorizes, "This is
necessarily real; that is necessarily wrong."
Who deep down is not continually in search of the truth? The
press? Police? The "rational" beings? No, everybody. Large numbers
of thinkers all over Earth are necessarily mindful of prophetism.
Thinking skills seem individual experiences, but are epidemic in
reality. Abraham is just a man's name among unnamed multitudes who
have ben linked to something which told them that God exists,
whether he is called the Father (12/4), Life (38/6), the
Maker or God in brief, God who is inseparable from man; even an
atheist is aware that he or she is unique on Earth. Each silent
meditative human being is a prophet, whose basic nature
causes dissent with materialism. Each human being puts his or her
life to the test of the invisible truth, that can be expressed in
billions of ways.
Prophetism numbers in billions just
like the cosmos. What a Pilgrim looks for in Arès actually exists
in the whole Universe. Otherness does not really exists
on Earth or anywhere else in the world. Otherness is just an
existential link with Life (24/3-5), that is
all-encompassing. The inexpressible reality that connects human
beings to All like to One (Rev of Arès xxiv/1) is
experienced continuously everywhere. A thinker, that is, each
human being imperatively needs to live in a position to
fulfil the commitments of the Truth which abound inside
himself or herself.
"Whatever is told cannot be separated from the
way it is expressed," said Kierkegaard. So, it is unimportant to
know Who and how He has spoken in Arès the book entitled The Revelation
of Arès. The Truth, that is the source of
prophetism, has for long stopped being a part of the explainable Universe.
