The Importance of Context
Updated: 05/28/2021

What is often forgotten in our thinking and discourse concerning important issues is that context is paramount. Can there be any valid meaning without context? Probably not, because EVERY issue and any interpretation must be couched or framed in its proper context to have any significance, relevance, or validity. Context would seem to be the ground, the framework, many times even the rationale for discussing issues.

There are various levels and several aspects of context, and it would be hard to list or describe them all, but in any situation or discussion there is usually one aspect that is critical and just a few others that are germane.

When we discuss spiritual–philosophical, theological, psychological, social, etc.–issues there are always two major aspects of context that affect almost everything, yet this context is often missing in the awareness of those involved. These two aspects are:

1. The human condition
2. The Saturnian and planetary catastrophe oriented reconstruction of our world's recent past.

Reluctance to address human condition

Usually, agreement on the first, the human condition, can be managed if done carefully, but often when mentioned the response is either an almost silent sigh, a sheepish grin, or silence. Focusing on it or talking about it extensively sometimes elicits an accusation of being negative. Even agreeing upon it can be problematic because of the overwhelming tendency of humans to BE in and STAY in denial. Unless we have a very high level of conviction that something can and will be done about it, we don't like to talk about it. Why would we want to talk about something depressing that we can't do anything about?

However, from the pulpit generally comes an attitude that we are to blame for our ills because of our current behavior, rather than being primarily the unwitting victims of developments that happened a long time ago, and that not too much can be done about it without sweeping changes in belief, major tangible involvement from God, and/or a dramatic level of increased empowerment over those agencies of nature that beleaguer us.

Saturnian and planetary catastrophism suppressed

On the other hand the truth about the world's recent catastrophic past is not obvious nor in the general consciousness, not just because it has been misinterpreted as being a punishment from God, but now because it has been buried and suppressed by a modern flood of Gradualist, Uniformitarian, and Evolutionist theory and teaching in our halls of learning and in the relevant scientific disciplines. Consequently, there is most times no agreement on this important context. It is well past the time that we should learn about it and understand its incredibly far reaching implications for, and the effects on, modern society, and on both the human material and spiritual condition.

There have been solar system rearrangements and global catastrophes delivered from the heavens by planetary electrical interactions; huge amounts of material have rained down on earth, and dramatic sea level changes have taken place in our recent past. The human race has been decimated more than once and is in denial by "forgetting" and/or pushing these events into the far remote past. We need to understand these globe-changing phenomena of the past, deal with them honestly, and take them into consideration concerning the origins and developments of our civilizations and religions.

"It is a misery to be born, a pain to live, a
trouble to die." - St. Bernard de Clairvaux

If you wonder sometimes about the lack of meaning in the world you see, maybe it has something to do with the general failure to be aware of the true context by most people.
