The Fish`s Journey
The Fish`s Journey
The story of Moses, the law giver to the Jews, that is, the `chosen people` of the Old Testament of the Bible, and Joshua, the Jewish general, who captured the city of Jericho in somewhat miraculous circumstances, and after the Jews` equally miraculous escape from slavery in Egypt to Pharaoh Thutmose III, is well known in the Judeo-Christian tradition, although Christians take their authority from the New Testament of the Bible in which the teaching of the Jew, Jesus `Christ`, `the chosen`, gave rise to Christianity: `Love your neighbor as you love yourself.` (Mk: 12. 31) What isn`t so well known is the story of Moses and Joshua among the Moslem peoples in the nations of Islam, who take their authority from the Koran (610-30 C.E.) given to Mohamed, according to Islamic tradition, by the angels of God.
Judaism was founded by Isaac, the son of Abraham. Barren after Isaac`s birth, Abraham`s wife, Sara, gave her maid, Hajer, `the Egyptian woman`, to Abraham, and Hajer gave birth to Ishmael. Judeo-Christianity views Islam as illegitimate because Hajer was unmarried, and Mohamed was a descendant of Ishmael. Moreover, because the Koran permits four wives, Judeo-Christianity views it as a retroactive attempt to legitimize the birth of Ishmael. Consequently, the Islamic story of Moses and Joshua is different, because the four wife families of the Moslems legitimize the independence of Sara and Hajer, and all other women of Islam, from conventional monogamy, which is confused with faithfulness to God and ring slavery in Judeo-Christianity.
In the Old Testament of the Bible, Moses receives laws on tablets of stone from God, which the Jews accept. When they leave slavery in Egypt, its ruler, Thutmose III, pursues them with his army (c. 1446 B.C.), and Moses parts the Red Sea with his staff of authority from God, so the Jews pass through. When the Egyptians try to cross they`re drowned. Although Moses dies before the Jews reach the land promised them by God, the sound of the trumpets of Joshua`s army bring down the walls of the city of Jericho as the Jews began their conquest.
In the story of Joshua and Moses in the Koran of Islam, Moses and Joshua are by the Red Sea with a fish that Joshua has brought along for their supper. The fish escapes into the sea, and the figure of Khidr appears. Khidr agrees to take Moses and Joshua with him, but they must be patient or Khidr will leave them. They travel together and Khidr rebuilds a wall because the people who would find the treasure buries under the wall aren`t ready to find it. Afterwards, Khidr kills a child he says is evil, and then he makes holes in ships before taking an undamaged ship and taking to sea, where he explains that he damaged the other ships because they belonged to pirates who`d follow them.
The treasure beneath the wall is the captured city of Jericho, which Khidr doesn`t believe the Jews were ready for. Among Christians during the period of Jesus` teaching, the fish was their symbol which, according to the developmental psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), represents a psychic content of the unconscious coming into consciousness, and it often is discernible in the dreams, art, and the imagination of intelligent individuals. Because Khidr takes to the Red Sea with Moses and Joshua, it`s plausible that Khidr is an early avatar of Jesus. What the psychic content emerging from the collective unconscious of the human race is, is clearer from Jesus` story. Born from his mother, the Virgin Mary, who is depicted crushing the head of a serpent in Christian iconography, Jesus was uncontaminated by male semen, which accords with the creator God`s words to Eve, the first woman, about her `seed`: `You shall crush the head of the serpent with your foot, but he will bruise your heel.` (Gen: 3. 15) As futanarian women have penis` `seed` of their own for the sexual reproduction of brainpower among the independent species of women, `woman`s seed` is God`s `foot` crushing the head of the serpent.
In Judeo-Christian tradition, the angel Satan, who rejected God`s plan that the human host be greater than the angelic, was turned into a serpent by God and left in the paradise of heaven on Earth that was Eden where Eve, the first woman, and Adam, the first man, dwelt. The serpent tempted Eve to `eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil`, which it was death to taste, rather than the `fruit of the tree of life`, that is, immortality, so Satan was a type of the host womb slaver of the human race of `woman`s seed` in ephemeral ignorance. What Satan offered was the power of war: `You shall be as gods.` (Gen: 3. 5) As Eve was depicted as being created by God from the side or rib of Adam, her birth was a euphemism for self-fertilization. Adam was a self-fertilizing futanarian woman, while Satan was the `serpent`s seed` from the earlier saurian evolution during the Mesozoic period of Earth`s pre-history 248 m.a. Because there was a 20 million year gap between the saurian epoch and the beginnings of human evolution, when the hominids began to appear 220 m.a., in the Jurassic period of Earth`s pre-history, it was plenty of time for the saurians to develop the technology to colonize the planets among the stars. Consequently, the Bible depicts them as angels in God`s heaven, where presumably they remain, and Satan is described as an angel become degenerate `serpent`s seed` slaving the host womb of the human race for war.
Because war is a repeated sequence in human history, it`d be feasible to replace `pirates` with `parrots` in Khidr`s concerns. In ancient Greece host womb enslavement of women was institutionalized for homosexuality in pederasty for war. The Greeks` rival was the Empire of Persia whose ruler, Xerxes, invaded Greece in 480 B.C. Jesus` disciple John, in his apocalyptic Revelation of the future, described the capital city of the Persians , Babylon (c.4000 B.C.), as `a woman`: `Mystery, Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of the abominations of the Earth.` (Rev: 17. 5) Host womb slavery of women for homosexuality in pederasty and war against her `seed` was endemic in ancient times: `The dragon was wroth with the woman and went to wage war on the remnant of her seed.` (Rev: 12. 17) Khidr made holes in the other ships to escape from the parrots, that is, he didn``t want to have to rebuild the wall again, because he was the treasure. Slaves have to repeat what the slavers want, which is why they`re the treasure that is hidden from the slavers . The `pirates` that Khidr is worried will pursue him are slavers, and his concern is with those who`d use the Koran to teach `parroting`, which is host womb slavery in homosexuality and pederasty for war against `woman`s seed`, that is, repeats. As George Santayana wrote in his The Life Of Reason (1905): `Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them.`1 Given the promised land by God, the Jews immediately began to conquer and enslave its people, which is symptomatic of the absence of `woman`s seed` within Judeo-Christianity.
In Judaism it`s traditional that a Jew can only be born from a Jewess, that is, women are Jews, because the Jewish `chosen people` are futanarian. Consequently, the four wives permitted by the Koran to the Moslem peoples in the nations of Islam accord with the Judeo-Christian tradition insofar as they afford the possibility of sexual reproduction between women within the human family. In short, the four wives of the Moslems aren`t a retroactive attempt to legitimize the birth of Ishmael from a woman unmarried, Hajer, whereas Judeo-Christianity uses that sign of a single independent species of `woman` s seed` unadulterated by the `serpent`s seed` of men to illegitimize Ishmael`s descendant, Mohamed, and the Koran.
Jesus` criticism of the Jewish religious police, the Pharisees, is equal to Khidr`s implied critique of parroting, that is, slavish obedience to those who want the text to be repeated after them, where the text is homosexuality in pederasty for war against `woman`s seed`. When Jesus was spied with a woman anointing him with the expensive perfume, spikenard, his disciple Judas` spy canard was that the perfume should be sold to raise money. Jesus rebuked him: `Leave her alone.` (Mk: 14. 6) Judas sold Jesus to the Pharisees for `thirty pieces of silver`, because Jesus was a threat to the Empire of Rome`s slavery of the host womb of the human futanarian species of `woman`s seed`. Jesus` execution sanctioned by the Pharisees was to prevent his teaching about `woman`s seed` from growing into a movement that would result in women`s escape from host womb slavery in parasitism to the devouring `serpent`s seed` of men: `The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth so that it might devour her child the moment it was born.` (Rev: 12. 4) In parasitology, the term for a parasite that emerges to kill the host is `parasitoid`, which is what men are. Although humans are taught that war is normative, it`s parasitoid activity, and its teleology is the devouring of the human species to extinction.
As `the fish` Khidr represents that content of the human psyche which seeks to escape from slavery, which is why he reappears in the archetypal figure of Jesus Christ teaching against host womb slavery of the human species of `woman` s seed` during the period of the Roman Empire`s occupation of Jewish Palestine. According to Jung`s developmental psychology, archetypes appear in dreams, art and the imagination as symbols or figures to assist human consciousness to develop. Consequently, the early Christians` labeling of Jesus `the fish` accorded with the role of Khidr as `the fish` in the Koran, who patiently explained to Moses and Joshua that it was better to run and escape from repeating war, because that way the treasure, that is, `woman`s seed`, wouldn`t be the host womb slave for homosexuality in pederasty for war against her, but would escape to produce her own brainpower for the conferring upon her race immortality through medical science and the building of starships to take her species to colonize the planets among the stars of God`s, heaven where God`s remaining angels might live with her in extraterrestrial human intelligence.
