As usual you have been successful in deceiving your own self. Your sideshow is just that. The lesson that I instructed you in stands.
Given that you feel that you have a point in relation to my Jesus then cleave to your point. I am comfortable with my Jesus.
Also you need to realize your folly i.e. you have introduced Jesus into an equation that prior to His introduction the equation stretched your mental capacity to its maximum and yet you could not understand. So why add more to jackass back?
Don't go away mad Hugh. Just go away. Oh, don't let the door hit you in the backassward as you leave.

More details regarding this perspective...
Genealogy
He [Jesus] was not descended from the House of David. According to Jewish law, tribal identification comes from the father's side, being Jewish, from the mother's side. According to Matthew 1, Joseph was descended from David (Although there are many contradictions between his genealogy there and that listed in Luke, however according to the same text, Joseph did not have sexual relations with Mary, therefore Jesus was not related to Joseph, and not a descendant of King David.
Three answers to this problem are given in classic Christian sources:
The genealogy is that of Mary - This is inadequate, since if he is claimed to be the Jewish messiah, and according to Jewish tradition he must be descended on his father's side, Mary's genealogy is irrelevant.
He was adopted by Joseph -According to Jewish law, adoption does not change the status of the child. If an Israelite is adopted by a Cohen,(A descendant of Aaron the High Priest), the child does not become a Cohen, likewise if a descendant of David, adopts someone who is not, he does not become of the tribe of Judah and a descendant of David.
It doesn't matter, he was a spiritual inheritor of King David - If it doesn't matter, why do Christian scriptures spend time establishing his genealogical pedigree? And if he is claimed to be the Jewish messiah, then according to Jewish tradition it does matter!

Hey, you're preaching to the choir. I understand well. It's a point that Jews often espouse when explaining why Jesus is not the Messiah. Hugh will never accept the inconsistency in his positions.

Unification indicates not only a fundamental unity of all existence but it also paves the way for the most moral behavior and opens up an understanding that sees the incarnation of typal principles, transmutation of one type into another, emergence, evolution, causation, conservation, eternal cycles of manifestation and dissolution and psychic phenomena as natural outcomes. Unification does away with the fear and illogic of the extra-cosmic God, creation from nothing, wars, hatred, the need for diabolic blood sacrifices, racism and petty tribalism.

Where the fundamental theme of unification is concerned, scientists are mystics are in agreement.

As much as I know Rome was not the first to make christianity an "official" religion. Aksum did this about 50 years earlier.
And I think some other orthodox-churches were even earlier than Aksum...

Absolute reality is non-dual, but the human mind in its exteriorized mode has evolved to function on the basis of duality, subject and object, etc., which is essential for its survival.

Photon is neither wave-like nor particle-like. It is simply a quanta of energy, a non-local field of energy, that takes up various poises depending on the method of measurement.

Robert Anton Wilson suggests that many of the so-called quantum paradoxes represent semantic artifacts arising from poor language choice when reporting observed phenomena in Science. Wilson frequently used the wave-particle duality example to illustrate his idea. To wit, let us propose one group of scientists performs a set of experiments and reports, "One experiment demonstrates light is a wave while another demonstrates light is a particle." Let us also propose that another group of scientists halfway around the world also perform an identical set of experiments and reports, "When constrained by one experiment, light behaved as a wave and while constrained by another experiment, light behaved as a particle." Although both groups of scientists aim to report similar empirical observations, the first group makes an existential conclusion about the 'is-ness' of light. The second group reports their observations operationally, describing what they actually observed light doing rather than jumping to an existential conclusion about what light 'is'.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”

&#8213; Nikola Tesla

COMMENTS: I think by referring to "non-physical phenomena" Tesla means the universal energy field vibrating at frequencies other than those that give rise to matter.

When mental control, the frequency of vibration of the brain-energy field responsible for mentation, in the brain recedes as say during sleep, randomness takes precedence when random thoughts from the subconscious take the form of incoherent dreams but at times these incoherent patterns manifest in a highly coherent manner, indicating a deeper control mechanism related to a more comprehensive range of vibrations of the conscious-energy field, thereby providing the experiencer invaluable insights into problems that were "insolvable" in the waking state - example, Kekule's dream that revealed to him the cyclic structure of benzene.

FREQUENCY OF VIBRATION OF THE ENERGY FIELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EMERGENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE BRAIN-ENERGY FIELD?

Gamma Range - 30 hz to 60 hz (associated with consciousness - the brain stops producing gamma waves when we're put under for anesthesia, for example). Gamma rhythms appear to be involved in higher mental activity, including perception and consciousness. It seems to be associated with consciousness, eg, it disappears with general anesthesia.

GAMMA FREQUENCY OF CONSCIOUS-ENERGY FIELD FREQUENCY OF BRAIN....

Gamma (above 40 Hz): The most recently discovered range is Gamma which is the fastest in frequency at above 40Hz (some researchers do not distinguish Beta from Gamma waves). Although little is known about this state of mind, initial research shows Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight and high-level information processing.....

I guess there can be hybridization of any number of brain wave frequencies - as for instance, during trance, the brain energy field vibrates at the Delta frequency (0.5 - 4 Hz) but being a highly subjective experience this frequency as the trance deepens and prolongs could connect with the Gamma range of frequency (above 40 Hz) to produce deep insights and rapid information processing. I think it's possible based on my own experiences in the yoga.
