Ontological Beliefs.

The One, The Mother, The Father, and everyone who ever existed.

By Michael_AngeloPublished 3 months ago Updated 6 days ago 26 min read

I do not disrespect the personal beliefs or gnosis of others, I instead simply use rational cautionary thought, when discerning what is possible and what is illogical. I implore you to do the same when reading my works.

Quick definitions:

Duotheism, Bitheism or Ditheism: implies (at least) two gods. While bitheism implies harmony, ditheism implies rivalry and opposition, such as between good and evil, or light and dark, or summer and winter. For example, a ditheistic system could be one in which one god is a creator and the other a destroyer.

Monism: states that all existing things go back to a source that is distinct from them; e.g., in Neoplatonism, everything is derived from The One. In this view only the One is ontologically basic or prior to everything else.

Panentheism: According to panentheism, the divine intersects every part of the universe and also extends beyond space and time. The term was coined by German philosopher Karl Krause in 1828.

Dichotomy: A division into two contrasting things or parts.

Symbiosis: A close, prolonged association between two or more different organisms of different species that may, but does not necessarily, benefit each member. A relationship of mutual benefit or dependence.

Duality: is a situation in which two opposite ideas or feelings exist at the same time.


1. Humility is Learned through uncertainty.

2. Accepting your mortality will give you perspective.

3. All things are built of Symbiotic Dichotomies except the "One."

4. This life is meant to be lived with vigor. Take in all you can.

5. Symbolism is the origin of all Languages.

6. Seeing the symbolism behind writings, music and art may give understanding and clarity.


This is a bedtime story meant for adults. Some of these concepts have my personal gnosis wrapped up in them. By way of understanding the metaphors and the lessons they represent, you have what proceeds can be interpreted in three different ways: 1. Theistic, or literal interpretation. 2. Atheistic approach, "for study purposes." 3. Both or somewhere in between, the choice of doing nothing. Generally, you will find that three options are often presented in life. E.G. yes/no but your third option is to stay silent. Another example is black/white and grey(Three Pillars.) Dream away!


In the beginning, in the Void; was the 'Word' and the 'Word' was God (God was alone.) The question asked was "Who is there?" and the answer received was "I am." Where only the singularity of monism stood, now there were two dualistic deities. The "First" or the "One" was not destroyed but instead, their willing consciousness resided among the "Two." The will of the 'One' still remained and their primary will was not to be alone!

The Fruit of Knowledge.

These dualistic deities were similar but different, like dichotomies but symbiotic in many ways. They were once one, but now two. The Mother Goddess and the Father God. The Father God was once called EL(most popular Angel names end in "EL.") and the Mother Goddess was known as Asherah. These are Canaanite deity names, one of many sets of names they have. They are the primordial first couple.

They set the universe/s on fire. Like the first split of the first atom. The Mother is of the heart's passionate ways(Red as roses) and the Father is more of the mind (cold and blue.) Both contain parts of the other, they are twin flames and siblings. Neither exists without the other.

Their names do not matter, for they are the progenitors of the human condition; emotions, thought, curiosity and will. The act of being able to create and destroy as well. They are part of every one of us, throughout our history.

Also like Tiamat(female) and Abzu(male) from the ancient religion of Mesopotamia, they were of "Ocean and river waters." Tiamat in some sources is seen as a sea serpent or a dragon. It is my opinion, that when ancient texts talk about "waters." It metaphorically means the fluidic nature of space, time and dimensions.

This was the first divide in existence. ( Two from One.) Before there was no time or space just the 'N(0)ne' in other words, it was the 'none-one,' both nothing and everything. Yet alone and in a superposition with zero.1=0 0=1.

The 'Two' stared at each other momentarily, like reflections on both sides of one mirror. instantly they reached across and shattered the mirror for a kiss. Metaphorically or literally this was the big bang moment. All of time and space became real, from the words spoken by the 'One' to the Kiss by the 'Two.' It was one swift motion that happened altogether.

Song reference: "Blood Of Eden"

[Peter Gabriel and Sinéad O'Connor:]

"In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man

With the man in the woman and the woman in the man

In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man

We wanted the union

Oh, the union of the woman, the woman and the man."

For a time the Father and the Mother were happy together. She was often referred to as a Tree or could be seen as a Gaia figure. The Asherah Pole or Asherah Tree was planted next to the altar of the "Lord" but early on The Bible strikes her down saying:

Deuteronomy 16:21 - English Standard Version (ESV)

<21> "You shall not plant any tree as an Asherah beside the altar of the Lord your God that you shall make."

Why was this so? why had her husband commanded his people to remove her from their worship? Well here is the Hebrew English version of the 'First commandment:' "thou shalt not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me."

How was this so? going from Two to one again was the Bible part of the history of these twin lovers? Well, perhaps there is confusion about who the Father is. #1 "Humility is learned through uncertainty." Things like death or the meaning of life, even the afterlife, can be hard to know. although some claim to have seen the other side.

The way I see it is if these two Gods were mentioned in the Old Testament. Then perhaps they are the Two in these texts, that are at war. here is where my transcendental thinking has me now:

Lilith was the daughter made in the likeness of Asherah herself by Asherah. We all know the rest of the story In rabbinic literature Lilith is variously depicted as the mother of Adam’s demonic offspring following his separation from Lilith or as his first wife. Whereas Eve was created from Adam’s rib (Genesis 2:22), some accounts hold that Lilith was the woman implied in Genesis 1:27 and was made from the same soil as Adam. Insolently refusing to be subservient to her husband, Lilith left Adam and the perfection of the Garden of Eden; three angels tried in vain to force her return. According to some mythologies, her demonic offspring were sired by an archangel named Samael and were not Adam’s progeny.

After Lilith, the Father God forbid The new couple, Adam and Eve, from eating the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Subsequently good and evil were just one of many dualities that the tree represented. Creation and destruction is a more suited title for the gift bestowed upon humanity. Asherah was the serpent that helped Adam and Eve escape their terrarium and to know duality itself. What one calls innocence in another light can be seen as ignorance.

Then Asherah like her daughter before her, she was forced out and off her Throne, down the stairs to 'the basement' to some this is known as Hell, the underworld, Sheol, or Gehenna. She was stricken from scripture almost erased from history even replaced but a male façade the biggest misprint in history; the noun known as "Lucifer." She was a God and the true Queen of Hell."Hell has no fury like a woman scorned" is a quote attributed to William Congreve, which suggests that a woman who has felt rejected or betrayed can be a powerful force of anger.

Lucifer a mistranslation:

#1. Christianity does not have a monopoly on the term “Lucifer” nor on its definition. The Christian concept and definition of the term “Lucifer” is merely the latest in a long line of definitions and interpretations of this pre-Christian term.

#2. The word “Lucifer” occurs only once in the entire Bible. This is in Isaiah 14:12, which says: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Those who read this verse in its actual context will clearly see that the sentence is applied specifically to a certain Babylonian king who was an enemy in war of the Israelites. The original Hebrew text uses the word הֵילֵל which literally means “bright star” or “shining one,” a term applied sarcastically or mockingly by the Israelites to this particular enemy of theirs. The translators of the King James Version of the Bible – one of the chief of whom was the well-known Rosicrucian initiate Dr Robert Fludd, a fact which will no doubt shock and horrify many Christians – chose to translate this word with the Latin word “Lucifer.”

#3. “Lucifer” literally means Lightbringer, Lightbearer, Bringer of Dawn, Shining One, or Morning Star. The word has no other meaning. Historically and astronomically, the term “Morning Star” has always been applied to the planet Venus.

#4. Since the only occurrence of the word “Lucifer” in the Bible is that one verse in Isaiah, there is absolutely nothing in the Bible which says that Lucifer is Satan or the devil. It was Pope Gregory the Great (540-604 AD) who was the first person to apply that passage of scripture to Satan and thus to equate Lucifer with Satan. But even then this notion didn’t catch on in a big way until the much more recent popularisation of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” in which Lucifer is used as another name for Satan, the evil adversary of God. Also, such luminaries of the Christian world as Martin Luther and John Calvin considered it “a gross error” to apply Isaiah 14:12 to the devil, “for the context plainly shows these statements must be understood in reference to the king of the Babylonians.”


The man who sold the world.

The One or the First was, and still is, all that is and all that we are. Humans were made by the Two, but the One is everyone and anything that ever existed. This God is sleeping as I'd like to see them. Sleeping in every one of us. Our soul or spirit is a bit of their flame. We are the known and unknown experiencing ourselves. The One wraps themselves in blankets of Identity. Should you truly acknowledge, that we are the One and we're all just one sleeping giant living in many iterations of the One. When you wake up the one God inside you, you may find yourself appearing insane to others.

This is nothing new or groundbreaking, In fact, the Atman and the Brahman relationship, have similar concepts, and that is likely where this truth emanates from.

The teachers of the Upanishads point the way to a profound realization: Atman, the innermost soul or breath of life, is also Brahman, the ultimate reality that pervades the entire universe. Reality beyond is also within. This is what Panentheism is to me.

Here are some songs that when you realize it, make more sense if the One was having conversations with themselves: (I prefer this version)


Asherah before the fall.
Asherah after the fall.

She was and still is the Tree of Life, the Goddess of fertility and the Queen of Heaven. Now she is so much more; the eternal serpent eating its own tail. Ouroboros. (Hence the serpent in the Garden.)The Celtic Tree of Life is associated with the dead. Celtic tribes would preserve a tree in the center of their settlements to act as a sacred site. The tree was said to allow access to the Celtic otherworld, a realm of the dead and other spirits.

In the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, both the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge is said to grow in the Garden of Eden. After Adam and Eve eat from the Tree of Knowledge, God bars them from the garden, setting an angel with a flaming sword to keep them out so they will not eat from the Tree of Life and become immortal.

The Tree of Life is a widespread archetype common to many religions, mythologies, and folktales. The Tree of Life is a common idea in cultures throughout the world. It represents, at times, the source of life, a force that connects all lives, or the cycle of life and death itself.

The motif of a sacred tree was common in ancient Mesopotamia and spread to many neighboring regions, including Egypt and Greece. While scholars believe this tree symbol held religious significance, it was not agreed upon to be what caused later and current ideas of the Tree of Life in the region.

The Mother teaches that all actions can be magical actions, with or without intent. It works like the butterfly effect, with chain reactions. Even household chores; like cleaning your space, give you a better work environment. Restoring an antique or writing a poem are examples too. She is the God that gave consciousness the ability to actuate choice and decisions into a physical reality. Through the knowledge of Creation and Destruction, understanding that there is no true good and evil.

As with a marble statue, it takes destruction first to create a great work of art. The artist chisels the marble with a destructive force and ends up making something we consider beautiful and breathtaking. She taught me that all things are made with creative and destructive force there is no one without the other. This is the universe's greatest governing principle: destroy to create and create to destroy.

Why do bad things happen? We are shaping the world one thing at a time. The daily rituals of the average human being cast ripples, like a pebble into a pond they grow bigger; like a radio wave into space traveling outward. The negative and positive energies take a push and pull relationship, this is the tug of war, that is The Holy war, between the Mother and the Father. Where has the Mother been all these years, waiting for someone to hear her cry out "I want justice" Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth." Now who calls her children abominations? Persons that do not realize they are in disgust, with their own brothers and sisters, Instead they cast the first stone and call them monsters. All men and women are equal in her eyes even the sinners.

In some Circles, she is believed to be the Goddess Babalon or the Scarlet woman. Jack Parsons Rocket pioneer, occult mystic, and Thelemite. He wrote a book called the fourth book of the Law. Seen by other Thelemite organizations as false and a failed spell. Here are the important excerpts I am drawn to:

25. I shall provide a vessel, when or whence I say not. Seek her not, call her not. Let her declare. Ask nothing. Keep silence. There shall be ordeals

26. My vessel must be perfect. This is the way of her perfection.

27. The working is of nine moons.

28. The Astarte working, with music and feasting, with wine and all arts of love.


Father Time.

"The baffled king composing hallelujah"

"Your faith was strong but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya

She tied you to a kitchen chair

She broke your throne, and she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the hallelujah."

Our Father who art in Heaven? who is the father? He is the divine masculine. Any or all Gods that are titled with the mantle of Father. It seems to me that he forgets her and the One, he confuses himself with the One often in the Abrahamic sense of the Father.

A comparison of the Father God from Greek and Roman Mythology deserves a look into. In comparative mythology, sky father is a term for a recurring concept in polytheistic religions of a sky god who is addressed as a "Father," often the father of a pantheon and often either a reigning or former King of the Gods. The concept of "sky father" may also be taken to include Sun gods with similar characteristics, such as Ra. The concept is complementary to an "earth mother".

"Sky Father" is a direct translation of the Vedic Dyaus Pita, etymologically descended from the same Proto-Indo-European deity name as the Greek Zeûs Pater and Roman Jupiter and Germanic Týr, Tir or Tiwaz, all of which are reflexes of the same Proto-Indo-European deity's name, *Dyēus Ph₂tḗr. While there are numerous parallels adduced from outside of Indo-European mythology, there are exceptions (e.g. In Egyptian mythology, Nut is the sky mother and Geb is the earth father).

Kronos' Succession:

Kronos or Cronus was the leader and youngest of the first generation of Titans, the divine descendants of the primordial Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Father Sky.) Cronus was usually depicted with a scythe, which was the instrument he used to castrate and get rid of Uranus, his father. On the twelfth day of the Attic month, a festival called Kronia was held in honor of Cronus to celebrate the harvest, suggesting that, as a result of his association with the Golden Age, Cronus continued to preside as a God of the harvest. Cronus was also identified with the Roman deity Saturn.

So our Two would be equivalent to Gaia and Uranus.

Everyone Who has ever existed:

At the end of the day, we are all a product of our environment, including how our parents raised us. We are all each other's reflections when we stare into one another's eyes. All the hate and love death and life are part of the same being, the One.

Heaven and Hell are placeholders named after a higher place and a lower place. This too can be said about dimensions, or if you prefer realms, but current versions of string theory, require ten dimensions, or with M theory eleven. Are Spaces or dimensions separating us from Heaven and Hell? These spaces are right on top of us and underneath. Hence why a stairway is often mentioned to Heaven, but spirals right down onto the surface of the earth. It was her descent that made these stairs, she fell with her Angels as told in the book Enoch. Is Semjaza also Asherah? Perhaps.

"And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones

To execute judgement upon all,

And to destroy all the ungodly:

And to convict all flesh

Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed,

And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."

The God of the Bible is a God ruling with fear. (I am aware this is not from the bible.)

The God of the Bible is a God ruling with fear. (I am aware this is not from the canonical Bible.)

We are all living out the love stories and life stories of those who came before us; or after. Different variables of the same old same old. Different faces, different places and different versions of ourselves. Matthew 5:44"Love thy neighbour as thyself" You'd be surprised how much you are alike.

The Simple Six in greater detail:

1. Humility is learned through uncertainty.

When something is uncertain to us, we must understand that not all occult; meaning hidden knowledge, is attainable to our limited logical capacity. By this, I am saying that the human mind is limited by the chemicals it runs on. (neurotransmitters.) Such as dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphins. These chemicals when in check give us a well-rounded thought process; so it is said. We are limited in this way by our senses which are governed by these physical-chemical processes.

There is what is seen and what is not seen, not seen by all at least. In some cases, there are spiritual adepts. The weather, for instance, is often locally something we can all agree upon. When experiencing it this is why it is the topic of discussion that is almost the least controversial and most commonplace.

My grandfather told me that you should never bring politics and religion to work; because these topics are based on emotions and not facts. He retired as a city police detective interestingly enough. He was right though! Often these topics depend on your perceptions and emotions, they are not always seen at an eye-to-eye level. Basically, opinions vary on these subjects.

Genesis 11:7 "Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Language is more than an alphabet, it is signs and symbols. Ideas, that's what language and communication are meant to do, convey ideas and concepts.

When you have arguments or don't agree on fundamental points of view, you might as well be speaking a different verbal language. Two people can speak about the same idea but not convey it in the same logical 'language.' This is why I think metaphors are so important in communication. They say complicated ideas, in easy-to-understand lump sums, that most people can get with less confusion.

A goldfish cannot see its bowl from the outside, without suffering the consequences: dying or death. Often said: " like a fish out of water." Humans too cannot perceive the outside of the universe without dying! For it is beyond our cerebral environment. Causing confusion and "mental illness" or death to see it. So by saying in these matters, humility is learned through uncertainty. you are humbled by saying I don't know!

Those chemicals we talked about are pushed to their limits when looking outside our world. "Shape without form, shade without colour, Paralysed force, gesture without motion; Those that have crossed with direct eyes to death's other kingdom" -T.S. Eliot-

2. Accepting your mortality will give you perspective.

Why this? why is this step two? well, this was assigned to you at birth; we all die. In which way we die depends on your decisions, if you believe in non-determinism. It could be all pre-determined someone or something has a plan. Or both, It could be a dance flowing freely to the music or choreographed to an elaborately orchestrated symphony. All in all, we die. What comes after that is still the subject of great debate.

It is important to at some point, accept your death that is coming, is to come, or will eventually become real. A lot of people are faced with fears of this idea, or it can be taboo to talk about when we see it as being far off, or so we think it is.

“We are all born to die – the difference is the intensity with which we choose to live.”

— Gina Lollobrigida (4 July 1927 – 16 January 2023)

The point is that you need to be ok with dying and that there is a possibility it may be just around the corner. Accepting death sooner than later; is for the better in my opinion. I had an aunt die at 15 when I myself was only 4 years. I don't expect anyone to emulate this experience. Simply knowing the truth that lies ahead of us and embracing it can give us early preparedness and help us appreciate the time we do have. Rather than the time we don't.

3. All things are built of Symbiotic Dichotomies except the "One."

All things are made of something and that something is the question at the leading edge of quantum physics. In the standard model, everything was thought to be made up of atoms, then electrons, protons and neutrons were theorized. Now String Theory is still in the running for the smallest indivisible piece of matter, but there are other competing theories about what things are made of. Such as matter being pixelated.

String Theory is a framework of theoretical physics that says all things(reality) are made of small vibrating strings, that are said to be smaller than atoms and quarks. As the strings vibrate, twist and fold, they produce effects in many, tiny dimensions that we interpret as everything from particle physics to large-scale phenomena like gravity.

The universe itself may be pixelated. Scientists such as Rana Adhikari, professor of physics at Caltech, think the space we live in may not be perfectly smooth but rather made of incredibly small discrete units. “A spacetime pixel is so small that if you were to enlarge things so that it becomes the size of a grain of sand, then atoms would be as large as galaxies,” he says.

Quantum gravity refers to a set of theories, including string theory, that seeks to unify the macroscopic world of gravity, governed by general relativity, with the microscopic world of quantum physics. At the core of this mystery of a question of whether gravity, and the spacetime it inhabits, can be measured, or broken down into individual components, which is commonplace in the field of quantum physics.

Now what are "symbiotic dichotomies?" Symbiosis is when two or more organisms have a mutually beneficial relationship like Mitochondria are to the living cell. Mitochondria have separate DNA from the cell itself and are separate organisms from the cell. Yet the cell provides protection to them and the mitochondria provide energy to the cell; by way of ATP, Basically.

Dichotomies are two cartographies that are mutually exclusive of one another. A "symbiotic dichotomy" suggests, that these two opposed or opposite things are also reliant on one another, in a mutual relationship with the other. How is this possible? Well, the definition from Merriam Webster dictionary of the dark is: "devoid or partially devoid of light: not receiving, reflecting, transmitting, or radiating light." So "pure darkness" is the complete absence of light.

In order to give either a definition the other is required! The relationship between dichotomies is a strong bond. Darkness without light has nothing to describe itself without the presence of light. As are many dichotomies. This may sound similar to Yin and Yang and it is. A world without opposites is a world of pure nothing. Oh actually, nothing is something only because they have each other. "Absolute Zero" would be worse than nothing, because at least nothing has something to define it.

So "Absolute Zero" what might that look like? words fail me, even though this term is still something, it is the only verbal representation of this idea. This brings me back to the beginning of this 'thesis' (I don't know what else to call it.) In the "except the One" part of guideline #3 the One is the first observer it was/is the original thought. Not an original thought, but The Original Thought! Which I approximate to be along the lines of a feeling of loneliness. "Am I alone?"

4. This life is meant to be lived with vigor. Take in all you can.

This one is fairly self-explanatory. In a nutshell, life is grand and full of promise. Always be observant of your surroundings, make the best of it and try to enjoy the bitter-and-sweet moments. There may be silence on the other side of life, so don't forget "We're here for a good time not a long time."

5. Symbolism is the origin of all Languages.

All communication has one basic principle to it, which is a message, that consists primarily of symbolism and that translates into information. Alphabets are the first thing that comes to mind because it has been established for millennia. There are simpler ways to express a message. They come in the form of an idea, a concept. Ideas do not need the written or spoken word to understand.

Cavemen drew pictures of great hunts on the wall of their caves. Any human could understand without explanation simply by seeing the artwork. Similarly, music can convey emotions without help from an outside source. which leads to our final simple six.

6. Seeing the symbolism behind writings, music and art may give understanding and clarity.

There is something behind the expression of an idea that does not require language, written or spoken, as previously stated above in #5.

There are many glasses of perception that one wears, wore, or will be wearing. Also, there are perceptions that are unique to many, many different people, from our own view of the world or beliefs. Getting that message across can be so vital when we discover people around us, who don't speak our language or see things with the same glasses or eyes as we do.

The simplest way around these barriers is through the mediums of art music and symbolism. When we can't express our message through words, these other methods may be tricky at times to convey what we want to, to others. Yet in many circumstances, these wordless messages may be all that we need.

Exemption: Symbolic writing such as poems, can translate emotions, deeper thoughts and experiences that prior to writing them down, did not in fact translate with the above methods. Metaphysical experiences such as communing with Gods or spirits, can be complex and hard to express without curating your words.

Now the expression of mathematics can also be a tool to convert an idea across language barriers. All physical physics concerning hearing seeing feeling etc... are governed by mathematics. For example, a soundwave produces a vibration that makes an acoustic wave. Music is a source that produces sound waves; when the string on a guitar is plucked it sends out vibrations. Which reminds me of string theory!

If the infinitesimally smallest structure of matter is indeed a string, then I can't help but feel it is also plucked and that all of the worlds we live in are part of one big orchestra. The Ex Nihilo event or whatever you want to call it, vibrated into existence somehow with the first pluck, bang, or kiss. Imagine it! All these strings are strung together with a grand mathematical theory behind them. The Fibonacci number comes to mind, or the Pi sequence as the sheet music behind the mechanics, that drives matter and everything.
