The rise of the superhuman…
Nietzsche spoke of the concept, though imperfectly. Michael, the Archangel is the first to mention this day, to Daniel, millenia ago. Jesus and the early Christians preached it.
Today, it floods out fictional airwaves. As it did in old Greece and Rome, with their dramas of the gods…
But, today, we have our gods without pretentious to truth so ugly as their inept and morally crippled superheroes. Not heroic, at all.
Today, we know well what a superhero can do, and celebrate truly those who do have the heroic…though we do not fail to mention the supervillain. And sometimes these prodigal sons and daughters turn. Are saved.
We know the definition of moral good and evil, and so the heroic, virtue its’ self. We know and show we know, and are taught real good… and real evil.
Such aspirations are foolish. To become a superhuman.But, the cross its’ self is pointed out by the apostle Paul, is foolish. Indeed, love’s foolishness is greater then the wisdom of the world.
Anyway, for me it is immortality first, then a certain capacity to know the secrets of people. To ascertain the happenings in other worlds.
A man – maybe an angel – pointed out a scenario where a few immortals ruled the world secretly. Well how about 144,000 of them. Why not. Good idea.
